Water wait Council puts water billing price hike, monthly billing decisions on hold until new year DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@metroland.com

CHRISTMAS CHEER Nestled inside this week’s Arnprior Chronicle-Guide is a 20-page Christmas supplement designed to provide the readers with holiday cheer. As well as offering a number of gift ideas, the supplement features photographs of Christmas activities in the area and a look at a few local authors whose books make great holiday reading.

IT’S BEGINNING TO LOOK LIKE CHRISTMAS Arnprior residents, businesses and organizations are proving they are in the Christmas spirit with generous donations to the Arnprior Food Bank and Snowsuit Fund. As well, a local family is spreading Christmas cheer as a way of keeping a beloved daughter’s memory alive. However, the town is being called a grinch for giving food bank-goers parking tickets on a cold, wet Monday. 3, 4, 10, 24, 38, 39

As the latest round of quarterly water bills are sent out this week, Arnprior council opted to delay making any decisions about raising rates or switching to a monthly billing system. Councillors are worried that ratepayers could be as angry as they were in late July when the water bills, in a small number of cases, proved at times well in excess of past billings. Council and staff anticipate “considerable increases” to water and waste water charges in the near future, but have opted to set aside a recommendation to freeze charges. Instead, the issue will be examined when the 2011 budget talks begin in the coming weeks. There is also an informal agreement among councillors to begin sending bills out 12 times a year. At Monday’s regular council meeting, town chief administrative officer Larry Donaldson explained the town is already checking meters on a monthly basis, but sending bills out more frequently – in order for clients to better grasp their usage and possible leakage issues – would come at a price.

One away from $6.7 million JOHN CARTER john.carter@metroland.com

So close, but no $6.7 million. Caroline Currie came agonizingly close to winning a major lottery jackpot Dec. 4. The Arnprior woman matched five of six numbers in Saturday’s 6/49 draw. The sixth

number was 13. And she had 12. That difference of one cost her just over $6.6 million. Currie did win $987.40 and while she appreciates the early Christmas gift, “it was quite a letdown” coming so close to a life-altering jackpot. See ‘THIRTEEN’ Page 7

Lynda Fraser says her daughter, Katie, left, was a Christmas fanatic. The family has found a way to keep her memory alive with a special Christmastime project. Above, two lucky Katie Bear recipients cuddle up to their gifts. were all hooked,” says Lynda. Katie was always a joy to have around, but she had a special excitement when it came to the holidays. “She was a real Christmas fanatic,” says Lynda. “She still believed in the whole idea of Christmas and giving.” An example of her enthusiasm for the holiday was an experience at the office when a manager, explained Katie, could not decorate her cubicle in case she offended others of different religions. “She went out and got decorations for every religion and put them up,” laughs Lynda. Katie’s death the following year was devastating for family, coworkers and friends, says Lynda, but when it came time to plan for the parade everyone was on board and the idea for

Katie Bears was born. That first year, a few dozen bears were given out. “It was tough, but I could hear her,” says Lynda. Of course not everyone could receive a bear, but the criteria for recipients was simple: anyone who looked like they could use a hug. Lynda says the support of the community, from corporate sponsorship to efforts like those of the Arnprior District High School cafeteria ladies, who implemented Katie Bear specials, and a penny drive at the Arnprior Villa, has been tremendous. She applauds also those who contribute new bears, or even a few dollars towards the purchase of one, because every penny makes a difference. This year Katie Bears were given out in parades in Arnprior and Eganville, where Katie grew up. Organizers are looking at visit-

ing other communities in the future. The website with photos of happy Katie Bear recipients has been a great way for Lynda and the family to keep in touch and see the small gift has often made a difference to those who get one. Getting over Katie’s death has of course been a struggle, but the family is rallying, says Lynda. “The world’s not going to stop for you,” she says. And the parade experience has turned to be amazing for the family. “It keeps all of us together - Katie’s friends from high school and public school and work,” says Lynda. And, of course, there’s the ultimate payoff, something money can’t buy. “The feeling you get when you hand a child a bear and the look that you get,” says Lynda. “It’s priceless.”

Your Reason to Smile!

The face of the Salvation Army in Arnprior for many years has died. Ken Bandy passed away in Arnprior District Memorial Hospital Dec. 7 at the age of 78. “He was a wonderful man, a hard worker and a friend to many,” said Arnprior-Renfrew Salvation Army family services co-ordinator Jane Forrest. “Ken knew everyone ... everybody liked him.” He had a great attitude, she said. “He was always smiling.” A soldier in the Salvation Army, Bandy started the now closed Arnprior thrift story about 20 years ago. Every Christmas he looked after the kettle campaign in Arnprior, often by himself. “He would be out there from morning to night sometimes,” said Forrest. “He also did a lot of work around the church,” she added. A former truck driver, he regularly volunteered to drive unsalable thrift store donations to the dump. He also spent hours cutting up rags do-

Kenneth Bandy nated to the Salvation Army. “He’ll be missed,” said Forrest. “We have many good memories of him.” Bandy lost his wife, Kathaleen, in an accident in 2004. He moved to Calabogie about a year ago to live with his daughter Donna. Bandy is survived by his son Stuart of Arnprior and daughters Catherine of Pembroke and Donna of Calabogie; five grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren. His funeral was held Dec.10 at the Pilon Family Chapel with Salvation Army Major Glenn Wirachowsky officiating.

A local family’s efforts to keep their daughter’s memory alive have turned out to be an extraordinary gift that keeps on giving. And those lucky enough to receive a Katie Bear along the Arnprior Santa Claus parade route have been touched by her generous spirit, as well. Katie Fraser was just 22 years old when a pulmonary embolism suddenly claimed her life in August 2009, shocking family and friends. Katie’s warmth and kind spirit were instantly missed by those close to her. “It’s important to keep her memory alive, she was such a good person,” says mom Lynda, who along with husband Ian has just completed the second year of the Katie Bear project. With much support from donors and volunteers, more than 500 bears were given out along local Santa Claus parade routes this year alone. The idea stemmed from a touching experience at the 2008 Arnprior Santa Claus parade. The family, owners of local company Go Zoom, entered a float and decorated with stuffed animals. Katie, along for the event with her parents, decided to offer a bear to a child on the parade route and soon all the float participants got involved, giving out the toys that decorated the float. “That was awesome, we

Growing chamber names 2011 directors JOHN CARTER

john.carter@metroland.com

The Greater Arnprior Chamber of Commerce named its board of directors for 2011 at its annual meeting Dec. 9. The chamber combined a short business meeting with its Christmas social attended by about 30 people at the Arnprior Cooperators ofďŹ ce. Chamber director Mark Nibourg made a presentation detailing how members can become involved in the County of Renfrew’s Expo 150 business and tourism showcase June 9 to 12, 2011. Zillah Briscoe, who took over as chamber president when Joan Carey moved to the Hamilton area in midyear, returns as president for 2011. In her report, she noted the chamber membership has grown from 120 to 145 in the past year. The Scotiabank employee said that the chamber has already started planning its 2011 activities. They include coming up with a new venue for the awards dinner and adding a bursary for Arnprior students attending St. Joseph’s Catholic School to go along with its Arnprior District High School award. She said the chamber has had a busy year with its tree campaign; tours of Arnprior industries Nylene, Pillar5 Pharma and Arnprior Aerospace; awards dinner in conjunction with the municipalities of Arnprior and McNab-Braeside; hosting two all-candidates meetings in Arnprior and another in McNab-Braeside; and the annual golf tournament, a fundraiser for the bursaries. Briscoe also noted the chamber continues to work closely with the local economic development committee and helps fund the economic development ofďŹ ce. She introduced chamber administrative assistant Cheryl Sparling and the 2011 board members: Nibourg of the Kenwood Corporate Centre, Wes Schnob of Nerds on Site, Steven Don-

tigny of Think out Loud, Leslie Osborne of the Chronicle-Guide, Mike Marcil of Giant Tiger, Gib McMullen of Apple Sarah’s Catering, Lynn Grinstead of MyFM, Cathi FairďŹ eld of Pillar5 Pharma, Carrie Brown of Cooperators, Jackie Laughlin of the Royal Bank and Barry Blier of the Pineridge Children’s Centre. Briscoe said the chamber is always looking for new ideas for meetings, socials, tours, guest speakers and ways to showcase its members. “Please feel free to contact us and we will do our best to make it happen,â€? she said. EXPO 150 Nibourg said there are several ways local businesses can participate in Renfrew County’s 150 anniversary cel-

ebrations. The showcase at the Pembroke Airport June 9 to 12 is expected to attract thousands of visitors to the 15-acres site, he said. “If you have anything to sell, this would be a good opportunity to show off your wares.� The event will feature all the amenities and excitement of a large regional festival, Nibourg said. There will also be plenty of entertainment with 80 local artists and bands. The Expo will also include two special ceremonies with visitors from Renfrewshire, Scotland. To participate, businesses can contact Nibourg or Expo 150 assistant Amy Gauthier at 613-735-7288, ext. 150 or email agauthier@countyofrenfrew. on.ca.

Almost $14,000 raised for roof


Council supports money for Gillies Grove maintenance derek.dunn@metroland.com

The Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) came asking Arnprior council for $2,000 and left Monday evening’s meeting with that and an informal commitment to partner for much more over the next five years. The owner of Gillies Grove, a non-profit organization that typically oversees lands in sparsely populated regions, is having problems keeping up with the number of dangerous trees needing to be felled near homes at the grove’s perimeter. Spokesperson Brenda Van Sleeuwen said cutting trees runs counter to the NCC’s mandate, but she understands the land was given over by the people of Arnprior with the intent to keep it for public use. But the NCC still needs help with stewardship and management and to address concerns organic waste is being tossed in the grove leading invasive species to threaten native flora and fauna. “The grove is a community treasure,” she said. “We are looking for assistance to carry out these activities.” Van Sleeuwen said if council donates the money, or at least writes a letter of

support, the endorsement can be used to attract funds from other sources. However, Coun. Mark Willmer was interested in the part of her presentation that detailed costs for a variety of actions over the next year, including the development of partnerships and property inspections. The work is likely to cost at least $8,600. Over a five-year period ending in 2013, the NCC needs as much as $49,915. “This is a very small request for an asset we all value very much,” Willmer said. “Rather than coming back every year asking for $2- or $3,000, we should budget for a longer partnership.” Van Sleeuwen agreed. The NCC is working with the Land Preservation Society of the Ottawa Valley, which was revived earlier this year. It has a fund in which will also be spent on specific project that will add improvements to the Grove. The NCC will also approach McNabBraeside council to partner on work in the Grove.

Monthly billing more expensive for town Continued from front Donaldson said the current system to have bills sent out every three months costs the town $17,000 per year in administration duties. If council decided to move to bi-monthly billing, it would cost 24,000. If monthly, $48,500. Donaldson said staff time is maxed out at the moment, too. Council agreed to hire a billing/accounting clerk for the next four months, at a cost of $13,000, to clean up a backlog of work left behind, as the treasurer and deputy treasurer are training on new software

and other duties. To move to monthly billing while staff is dealing with budget preparations, the water billing fiasco, a new financial system and its training, would be “a little early at this point,” Donaldson said. Coun. Lynn Grinstead and the others at the table said the issue will be raised again in four months. “I don’t think it should take you any longer than that to become familiar with the new process,” Grinstead said. She is also keen to move all payments, including water billing, online. Ebilling will also be consid-

ered at a later date. Mayor David Reid invited comments and questions from the public at the meeting’s end. Gillies House homeowner Ron MacIntyre suggested town staff provide a timeline and costing for the new software rollout, and to keep the old system in place as a temporary backup. Reid thanked MacIntyre but had little to share on the topic, saying he only began investigating new software options this week. The November-December water bills are due in early 2011.

There is affordable assisted housing for seniors in the area that is going begging for tenants, says Bonnie Chapeski. Chapeski, a McNab-Braeside resident, was reacting to a story in last week’s Arnprior Chronicle-Guide that detailed a campaign by Arnprior District Memorial Hospital and Grove Nursing Home officials to promote more seniors housing in the area. The delegation, which attended the

Dec. 7 McNab-Braeside council meeting, also made a presentation to Arnprior council Dec. 13. They are asking for input from local politicians and agencies on an effort to add long-term care spaces at the Grove and develop assisted care accommodation at the Grove and other places in the community. Chapeski pointed out that the Renfrew Glen, which offers minimum assistance accommodation, has only two of 16 units rented. “Those people on the long-term care waiting list that shouldn’t be, may-

Thirteen proves unlucky for Arnprior woman Continued from front Currie decided to check her numbers on the computer Saturday night. So far so good when she matched the 2 and 7. Then disappointment as 13 was the next number. Missed three numbers by one, she thought. That 13 took on added significance as she matched 17, 27 and finally 41. “Son of ....,” she exclaimed to herself. She knew she had come oh so close to a major prize. She didn’t find out until Monday just how much she had almost won. “I never thought I’d be that close, especially when the number I missed was only one away,” she said Monday. Currie said she has won several bingo jackpots over the years, prompting her coworkers to call her lucky and urge her to buy lottery tickets. “I told them, ‘I do’,” she said.

In fact the retired Boeing worker has been buying lottery tickets “ever since they’ve been around.” Her biggest win was $10,000 years ago on a Wintario ticket. She said she would have loved to have won the big prize and been able to share it with her large family. Currie has nine brothers and sisters, four children, seven grandchildren and one great-grandchild. “Of course, it would have helped me too,” she said. “But my dream is to help my family. I could have helped a lot of people (with $6.7 million) ... some going through tough times.” Since her winnings are under $1,000, Currie doesn’t have to go to the Lottery office to collect her money. While not all lottery outlets are able to pay out as much as $987.40, there are two in Arnprior, one being the Metro store.

be they could come here,” she said. The complex, which has been remodeled from the old Horton School just off Highway 17 east of Renfrew, is owned by Chapeski’s brother. She is retiring from a 33-year career in nursing this month to become the manager of Renfrew Glen. Chapeski explained that while the twoyear-old facility doesn’t have 24/7 health care coverage, there are daily checks. With Chapeski coming on board with her many years of nursing experience, Renfrew Glen can become more flexible in providing services to its residents. The units are affordable at $899 a month, which includes heat and hydro, she said. There is free laundry and cooked suppers could be added if residents want the service, she added. There is also plenty of room to add 20 or 30 more units if the demand materializes, she said. “If we get a waiting list, we’ll build.”

Church accessibility project celebrated The public is invited to join the congregation of St. Andrew’s United Church in Burnstown this Sunday, Dec. 19 to celebrate its new accessible entrance. A ribbon-cutting will take place at 12:30 p.m. with a lunch to follow (no charge, but donations are appreciated). Rev. Don Anderson, Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant, MPP John Yakabuski and McNab-Braeside Mayor Mary Campbell are among those expected to attend the celebration. The church received a federal $43,515 Enabling Accessibility Grant to fund the reconstruction of the premises for disabled access, including washrooms, buttons on the doors, overall renovations and an outside ramp.

Back the low-income senior solution

Arnprior’s teenagers deserve more respect

A second presentation was made this week to an area municipal council asking for support to build more affordable housing for seniors. The study is done. The facts laid bare. The argument sound. We fully endorse the concept. Here’s why. Hospitals across the country are turning into hotels for people who should be elsewhere, either in their homes or in a longterm care facility. It’s far more expensive to keep them on a gurney – in some less-than-private corner of a hospital – than outside the hospital system. As a country we should move toward saving health-care dollars where possible. There is also the local problem and opportunity. According to Kerri Choffe, one of the presenters at Arnprior council’s Monday meeting, some seniors are at the provincially-funded nursing home because they can’t afford to live on their own and no affordable housing exists for them. The problem is only going to get worse as the population ages. The solution, according to Grove CEO Eric Hanna, is to expand the nursing home and encourage the province to build more affordable housing in Arnprior. “We’re not looking to reinvent the wheel,” Hanna said. “It’s proven. It’s done in Deep River, and Renfrew and Eganville are doing it too.” Reeve Walter Stack is trying to bring a new affordable housing unit to the corner of John and McGonigal streets. He was re-elected, in part, to fulfill that now-delayed mission. Densifying the downtown will bring jobs and mean more potential customers for businesses. The Grove is going ahead with its expansion. That isn’t the issue. But, understandably, the administration doesn’t want to spend the money on building new units that will be taken up by people who could be in affordable housing. In fact, seniors should only be in assisted, long-term care facilities for the final two years of their lives. There is almost no down side to getting behind this plan, other than it possibly becoming yet another case of government putting up a building but not funding the operational costs. Let’s ensure both are backed at Queen’s Park. What say you, Mr. Yakabuski?

Vandals ignorant about APC’s role

To the editor: I wanted to convey my shock and anger over the defacing of our M113 APC at the Legion. I work for the National Research Council and we conduct mobility trials and testing on virtually every vehicle in the Canadian Land Forces Fleet. I know these platforms intimately. Apparently the mindless vandals are unaware of the role these platforms play every day in protecting and saving the lives of not only their operators, but those they are tasked with protecting and providing live-saving supplies too.

the weight of an APC, has a main gun and its role is completely different. APCs have a long history and in many circles are viewed as perhaps the most vital and pivotal platform of its type in the history of armored vehicle conflict. They can be configured to assume multiple roles including ambulances and recovery/ maintenance variants. I truly hope that the OPP pursue and charge the individuals involved with this truly disrespectful act and perhaps part of their sentences should be to learn about what these vehicles are, what they do to save lives around the world and perhaps a lesson in re-painting APCs should not be out of the questions.

To the editor: Has anyone taken a walk through our local mall recently or in the past and noticed the demographics that are visibly obvious? The majority of mall patrons are middle-aged to elderly and/or sometimes accompanied by small children or adolescents; there is rarely a teenager in sight unless they are working in a store. This may not seem like an issue to most unless you actually take the time to consider reasons why the mall is so void of teenagers and young adults. Is it that there are no stores available that appeal to people this age? No, we have an Ardene’s, Biba, Hart and a few other appealing stores. Items in these stores are not over-priced, so finances couldn’t be an issue. I would think, in my opinion, the reason our mall is so under populated by teens is just that we don’t feel “welcome.” I remember I stopped visiting the mall regularly after getting tired of constantly being followed around stores and harassed by employees simply because they suspected me of “being up to no good.” I recall me and my friends getting approached in the mall numerous times while sitting on the benches and being told to “watch yourselves” or “make sure you’re not causing trouble.” This cold, unwelcoming behavior has made me and probably other teenagers avoid going to the mall unless absolutely necessary. This biased opinion that labels most teens delinquents, thieves, or “no good” is not just reserved to the mall. I find that most places of business in this town all share the same hostility towards young people (13-18). We are glared at when we walk into stores, employers whisper to their employees to “keep an eye on those ones,” and we are automatically assumed to be “bad kids.” It seems as if employers and employees automatically assume that a teenager is more likely to shoplift then an adult. Well, while an innocent teenager is being held up and searched and accused in a store, it is easy for anyone to just take an item and walk away unnoticed because of the distraction. The reality of the situation is that this town is at risk of “going under.” In addition to the lack of new employment opportunities and lack of economic sustainability, the teenagers who are being prejudiced against are not going to want to stay in this town and assist in its growth once they are adults.

Continued from Page 8 And why would they? Would you want to stay somewhere full of memories of fixed opinions and labels degrading you down to something you are not? I admit there are some unfavorable characters in this town who are thieves and who vandalize and cause mischief, this is simply because there is nothing to do for teenagers in this town, apart from causing havoc, doing drugs, and breaking the law. Teenagers are bored. And I believe this is because our town spends all its time, money, and attention over-stimulating children up to Grade 9 with a constant stream of free clubs, benefits, and organized activities and then, once they pass Grade 9 at the latest, they are left to fend on their own. There are no clubs or activities for teenagers over that age limit. Unless you are fortunate enough to be able to afford being on a sports team, which many teens aren’t or if you include “youth groups” at local churches, and many teens avoid these places because as soon as they enter the doors they are overwhelmed by people trying to force religion onto them when all they want is a place to hang out and have fun.

We are not demanding free access to anything, or unreasonable social activities, but I think it would greatly benefit this town’s residents to invest in some kind of social gathering place for teenagers over the age of 14. Because when teenagers get bored in this town, they have to find other means of entertaining themselves, and this usually involves doing drugs, causing mischief, and breaking the law. I have used the phrase “in my opinion” many times in this letter, and I do not expect my opinion to be shared or appreciated by many people in this town. I do not expect action to be taken immediately or at all, but I’m just stating that if the people in this town truly value their younger generations (this includes teenagers), they will listen at least. Listen to the opinion of a labeled teenager, a “delinquent,” someone different. Ashley Veal (Grade 12 student) Arnprior

To the editor: It seems that my letter to the editor supporting Hector Clouthier has struck a nerve with both the local Conservative and Liberal supporters. Obviously, they feel threatened by Mr. Clouthier’s candidacy or they would not have taken the time to respond to my letter. My belief is the people of Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke are sick and tired of having their elected representative dictated to by their party leadership rather than properly reflecting the wishes of their constituents. Two glaring examples of this is the fact that our MP Cheryl Gallant voted in favour of HST simply because Stephen Harper

ordered her to do so. The latter example has taken place in the crucial vote regarding the long-gun registry as Michael Ignatieff has whipped his caucus (and Christine Tabbert agrees with him) to vote in favour of maintaining the wasteful registry. On these issues that resonate poorly with rural ridings, our concerns are being trumped by political parties that prefer to pander to the urban populations. An independent member can vote in reflection of his constituents and that’s the way it should be. Adam Lesco Laurentian Valley

Parking tickets anger food bank users Up to 20 cars may have been tagged on Monday JOHN CARTER john.carter@metroland.com

The ticketing of a number of vehicles on Albert Street Monday has raised the ire of Arnprior Food Bank users and supporters. Many of those ticketed were using the food bank in St. John Chrysostom Church basement at the time they were given the $35 tickets. “I’m disgusted,” said Steve Taylor, who was ticketed for parking on the street after driving a couple to the food bank. “I was helping people out and this happens. It’s infuriating.” Taylor said he estimates between 15 and 20 vehicles were ticketed during the time he was at the food bank. “I realize there is limited parking allowed on the street, but surely at this time of year, so close to Christmas, it could have been allowed,” he said. “They know the food bank is open Mondays. “I agree action should have been taken if a fire hydrant was being blocked, vehicles were blocking driveways or people were encroaching on private property, but there was none of that,” he said. “Every-

one was being very contentious.” Taylor said people swallow their pride to come to the food bank because they genuinely need a helping hand. “It’s not right to add this to their burdens.” He said it’s not fair to expect people, many of them elderly, to park up to six blocks away and carry bags of groceries in Monday’s conditions. “The weather was terrible. Many of the sidewalks were glare ice,” he said. Taylor said the food bank volunteers are trying to help, as they have posted a sign warning of the no-parking zones. However, they weren’t very happy about Monday’s ticketings, he said. WILL FIGHT He said he was urged by many food bank patrons to speak out against the tickets. Taylor said he will fight his ticket. “I felt like going down there (town hall) and ripping it up in front of them,” he said. The issue of ticketing food bank users arose during the summer when there were also complaints made to town hall. At that time, council corrected signs on the street to coincide with the bylaw that allows parking on the church side of Albert Street only on weekends. Council also designated three handicapped parking areas near the church.

A throng of dogs and cats joined the Christmas shoppers at the Arnprior Shopping Centre Dec. 11 and 12 for the Arnprior and District Humane Society’s annual Pet Pics with Santa fundraiser. Pets and their owners waited (mostly) patiently for their turn for a photo opportunity with the man in red and white. At left, Abby is all dressed up and ready for her closeup. Below, Andy and Anda Kalnins join Santa and Barney for a picture. The Kalnins brought photos of their four cats, all shelter animals, so they could be included in the fun.

Help Bailey get the surgery he needs

Arnprior needs votes by Sunday in challenge The Arnprior and District Animal Shelter is currently ranked fifth in a country-wide voting challenge run by the Animal Rescue Site. The competition will award a $1,000 grant to the top three shelters in Canada. The Arnprior shelter hopes to take the lead by this Sunday, Dec. 19, when the challenge ends. As of last weekend, it was trailing the number one shelter by only seven per cent of votes. “We are honoured that residents are taking the time to go online and vote for us,” said Stephanie Cantrell, manger for the shelter. “I think it’s a testament to the incredible work the Arnprior and District Animal Shelter does everyday.”

SHERRY HAAIMA shaaima@msn.com

The Arnprior and District Humane Society and one of its newest canine residents need your help. The shelter and its supporters are currently working to raise funds to provide life-saving surgery for Bailey, a chihuahua mix who was badly neglected for a long time before being brought to the shelter. “Bailey is a very sweet, loving little dog who deserves a new lease on life,” says shelter manager Stephanie Cantrell. “He came to the shelter extremely overweight, with overgrown toenails, parasites, a large tumour in his mouth and bladder stones.” Bailey has been put on a strict diet and exercise program to help him lose at least one third of his weight, says Cantrell. The surgery he needs will remove the bladderstones, she explains. Everyone who comes into contact with Bailey is won over. “He is an adorable little guy who loves everyone he meets. He loves to be held, snuggled and loved,” says Cantrell. Even after years of neglect, Bailey is a happy-go-lucky dog, who enjoys every minute of every day, she adds. He loves playing with his squeaky toys and ball and is a joy for those around him.

Bailey needs surgery that will remove bladder stones and save his life. Any money left over from Bailey’s surgery will go into the Tyson compassion fund, which helps with medical costs for animals that need life-saving surgeries or extra medical care. The shelter currently has several other pets that require extra medical care or surgery. For more information or to help Bailey call the shelter at 613-623-0916.

The Arnprior shelter, which has already surpassed shelters from larger cities such as Calgary, Vancouver and Toronto, is feeling optimistic about the challenge, and is hopeful community support will continue to increase in the last few days of voting. “Winning the challenge would be a fabulous Christmas gift,” said Cantrell. “This grant would help buy the supplies needed to keep the animals fed, healthy, and happy.” The shelter, which currently cares for over 100 animals, is always in need food, litter and other supplies.

It almost seems at times as if the Arnprior Packers aren’t meant to play at the Nick Smith Centre. They started the 2010-11 Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League season with four games elsewhere. It was Oct. 1 before they finally arrived home. Now, at the end of a fivegame road trip, the Packers were looking forward to Sunday night’s home tilt versus the Metcalfe Jets. But thanks to the weather and icy road conditions Sunday, that wasn’t happening. The game was postponed. As fate would have it for the Packers, it’s now back on the road again. The Packers travel to the Barbara Ann Scott Arena tonight to take on the Ottawa West Golden Knights at 7:30 p.m., which now makes it a six-game road trip. However, good news is quickly on the horizon for Arnprior’s Brandon Riopelle carries the puck into the Packer fans as they return Thunder zone during a Saturday night match in Al- for a pair of home games this weekend at the Nick monte. The Packers won 6-3.

PACKERS 6 ALMONTE 3 The Packers did make the most of the one game they did play last weekend. On a Saturday night when they could have cashed in their chips, the Packers instead continued to fire pucks, and came back with a vengeance to grab what early on seemed an unlikely win. Down 3-0 to the Almonte Thunder approaching the latter stages of the second period, goals from Casey Doner and Taylor Collins paved the road to recovery. Four unanswered third period goals while outshooting the Thunder 14-7 propelled the Packers to victory.

Michael Byrne tied it 3-3 in the opening minute of the final stanza, before a pair of Braedon Moffatt markers shocked the homestanding Thunder. Stephen Baylis sealed the verdict when he connected with 1:34 remaining to make the final score 6-3. The Packers peppered Almonte goalkeeper Morgan Barr with 55 shots, and they finally started going in. Matt Gagne faced 29 Al-

monte shots in the Arnprior goal crease. Packers coach and general manager Bill Griese was pleased with the way his team continued to battle despite being down 3-0 to a good goaltender. “One thing I did like, even when it was 3-0, they didn’t sulk or feel sorry for themselves,” Griese observed. “There was no slumping of the shoulders. There was never any sign of quit.”

The Arnprior Redmen opened defence of their Renfrew County junior boys basketball championship in fine style with a pair of convincing wins last week. They also won a tournament in Brockville on the weekend, winning three straight games in impressive fashion. On Dec. 7, the Redmen ignited the 2010-11 Upper Ottawa Valley High School Athletic Association schedule with a 57-12 triumph over the Jeanne-Lajoie Chevaliers in Pembroke. Mike Shoveller sparked the ADHS attack with 19 points while Cody Moore and Jaegar Prot backed him with a dozen points each. Two days later at the ADHS gymnasium, Shoveller put home 27 more while Prot collected 16 points in a solid 59-21 grounding of the Fellowes Falcons. The Senior Redmen weren’t as fortunate. They couldn’t slow down the defending senior basketball champion Falcons’ offence in a 64-42 setback to the Pembroke school, despite John Buffam’s 22-point performance for Arnprior. Prior to the season openers, the Redmen travelled to Renfrew for the Gord Eady Tradition boys basketball doubleheader Dec. 6. The teams split, with RCI claiming the senior contest 62-30. Arnprior took the junior clash 57-27. However, RCI won the 2010-11 pre-season challenge on the basis of points differential, edging the Redmen by two points. Meanwhile, in girls volleyball action, both ADHS senior and junior teams began with 3-1 wins over Jean Lajoie in Pembroke Dec. 9. The ADHS teams’ games at Fellowes Tuesday were cancelled because of the snow storm. With files by John Carter

One week before Christmas

We all wait until the last minute and then run out and try and buy that perfect gift for that special someone. There are some great pet gifts out there and some come with price tags to rival the electronic gifts your kids will want for the holidays. Let me help you with a few suggestions. Buy a toy that will not only last but also stimulate. There are balls and other contraptions that you can stuff with treats such as cookies, peanut butter or cheese. Watch your dog go crazy trying to get those luscious treats out from within those toys. Rawhide, Pigs Ears and Hooves are fun. However, they smell when they get moist from chewing and too many can make your pet throw up. It is advised to supervise your pet while chewing rawhide. Be careful not to give them a toy that has a bell that can break off and be swallowed.

Pet Talk

IAN STUPP Toys that are stuffed with a squeaker in them are o.k. Just make sure they don’t remove the squeaker and swallow it. Always inspect the toy and make sure that the squeaker is intact. There are a host of simulated bones made from nylon called nylabone flavoured in beef or chicken and come in all shapes and sizes. They even sell bones that act like dental floss. These bones clean the teeth and stimulate the gums as they chew. Maybe they should make a product like that for us! There are beds, blankets and pillows made of faux fur in all shapes and sizes to keep your pet comfy on those long cold winter nights as well as boots, coats and sweaters. There are feeders, bowls, cages, crates, dog houses and kennels. You can also give them the gift of jewelry with bling collars and leashes. Cats will love toys that

are stuffed with cat nip. There are all kinds of scratching posts and cat furniture for them to climb on, sleep on, scratch and enjoy; battery-powered mice to drive them crazy; and feather teasers to keep them busy. Small birds to large parrots would enjoy cage accessories like food and water dishes and perches and ladders. Toys come in all shapes and sizes and in a variety of materials such as wood, plastic, metal, cord, denim and leather. If you’re not sure what to get your pet or a pet lover on your gift list, then try a gift certificate for a day at the spa (for the pet not the owner) or a gift certificate from a local pet store. Just remember to have fun! Shopping for a pet or pet lover should be just as much fun as for the human gifts you’ll be buying. I bet you never got a wet kiss from a human as thanks for purchasing that special gift. Best of all, your pet won’t be in the return line at the local pet store after the holidays. Mary one week before Christmas and a happy gift shopping to all! Ian owns and operates Wags & Whiskers Pet Grooming and Puppy Kindergarten at 118 John St. North.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING Application for Consent IN THE MATTER of Section 53, Chapter P.13 of the Planning Act, R.S.O. 1990; and IN THE MATTER of an application for consent by 1590739 Ontario Ltd. (Fred Schuck), property owner, with respect to the following: Political representatives from Renfrew and Lanark counties gathered in front of Parliament Hill on Dec. 9 to let the federal government know that they want the Ottawa Valley Railway line saved. Photo by Desmond Devoy

Lanark, Renfrew politicians rally to try to save railway Rails could come out by February DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

Politicians from Renfrew and Lanark counties took their message to save the Ottawa Valley Railway right to the front door of Parliament Hill last week. During a noon-hour rally on Dec. 9, politicians from Renfrew down to Smiths Falls converged in front of the centre block of parliament to demand that the rail line be preserved for future generations. “Once those rails are gone, they will never be back,” said Perth Mayor John Fenik, who is also the Warden of Lanark County. “That rail line has economic value, that train has environmental value.” Peter Emon, Reeve of Greater Madawaska, agreed the rail issue was something that both areas had a desire in preserving. “This is a very significant issue. It represents the thread to both of our communities and northern Ontario,” said Emon. “We don’t know what the future holds … but we know that it will be limited (without the line).” Canadian Forces Base Petawawa is a major employer and economic driver in the north end of the Ottawa Valley, and Emon stressed that rail links were an important part of keeping the military happy. “If they (CFB Petawawa) can’t ship in the fuel for

the military … they may decide that they don’t want to invest in our area,” said Emon. “The party of Sir John A. Macdonald, which built railroads, is now tearing them up.” The rally’s convener was former Mississippi Mills Mayor Al Lunney, who is now a consultant with Lanark County on the rail issue. Earlier in the day, Lunney had met with the Minister of State for Transportation, Rob Merrifield, on the issue. “We didn’t have a great deal of success,” Lunney said. Lunney stated that during his meeting the meeting Merrifield told him the municipalities should come up with a business plan of their own. “We doubt we could put a business plan together in a year,” said Lunney, noting time is of the essence, since the tracks could start to be torn up by Feb. 5 of next year. The federal government decided not to purchase the rail line in November. The province of Ontario had until this month to decide if it wished to purchase the line, but it does not appear to be interested in buying it. The City of Ottawa’s OC Transpo will have until Jan. 5 to consider purchasing the line. If OC Transpo passes on the sale, other municipalities will have until early February to consider a purchase.

“The best-case scenario is to postpone (ripping up the tracks),” said Lunney. He will also be arranging a meeting for sometime in January, with all of the interested parties invited, to pursue this matter. “Both Renfrew and Lanark counties support that these lines remain in our communities,” said Lunney. “Please give us some time to look at this. Please give us some time for the future generations … to do that we would need a moratorium.” He added that he and his fellow politicians would continue campaigning to save the rail line. “Ten, 12 years from now, without a doubt, there will be need for it,” said Lunney. The rail line had been used by Canadian Pacific to transport freight up until this past January. Smiths Falls Mayor Dennis Staples noted the rail line was an important link between Montreal and Vancouver. By sending freight up through the Ottawa Valley and not down through the Toronto corridor, it could save up to 20 hours in travel time, and would cut down on congestion in Canada’s largest city at the same time. “They (Canadian Pacific) said that there isn’t business for it (the rail line). That’s not entirely true,” said Lunney. “They took the business for it onto the Toronto corridor.” “There are many opportunities that we need to look at,” Staples added.

Winter Control Questions & Answers also ensures adequate storage for future snowfalls. A sander truck with a plow and wing spans only 16’. If plows are angled, this distance is reduced. This typically requires a sander truck to travel a roadway 4 times (2 times each direction).

What is “winter control”? Winter control includes planning and scheduling of processes related to the maintenance of roads during winter conditions, as well as, undertaking the actual process which includes, snow plowing, snow removal, sanding and salting, sidewalks and clearing of hydrants.

Which streets and sidewalks get plowed first and why? Streets designated as “priority” are cleared first then crews take care of the remainder of the streets. Priority roads carry the higher volumes of traffic and are most easily identified as arterial (main) roads or collector (secondary) roads. These are the roads people use to get in and out of town, to business areas, medical facilities and schools. After priority roads, the route is established to plow, sand or salt in the most timely and effective manner.

Why spread salt on the roads before plowing? The Town spreads rock salt on streets with minimal snow cover prior to plowing. The salt is spread down the centre of the road in a fairly narrow band. The snow assists the salt through a chemical reaction, to become a brine (i.e. liquid). The liquid (rock salt & snow) helps prevent snow and ice from bonding to the road surface, improving traction. The salt remains on the driving portion of the roadway. When the plows come by, mid-stream or end of the storm, the snow is easily plowed and does not stick to the road surface. This process is not as advanced as spraying (anti-icing) of magnesium chloride on streets in advance of a snow storm to improve road safety. Magnesium chloride liquid is applied at various concentrations depending on temperature and anticipated volumes of snow.

Why are there piles of snow along the edge of the road? Snow is plowed to the edge of the road by the sander truck as well as the sidewalk plow. This creates a pile or windrow along the edge (curbline) of the road for future snow removal (snow blower &/or loader). This is only undertaken on streets where we have snow removal operations. Generally in the evening or overnight, the blower will travel the roadside, blowing the snow into trucks to be transported to the snow dump.

Why does the plow go by once, and after I clean my sidewalks and driveway, the plow comes by again? The sander trucks are efficient to clear a single lane and get traffic moving, then on a priority basis, snow equipment will come back to your street and plow the rest of the street to the curbs or back of sidewalks. This not only clears sidewalks in areas where we do not undertake ‘sidewalk clearing / snow removal’, but

Why can’t the trucks plow all the snow to the other side of the street where there are no sidewalks or driveway? Snowplows are designed to plow snow to the right hand side. In order to plow all the snow to one side, the equipment would have to drive on the wrong side of the road creating an unsafe traffic situation and this would take more time which means the streets not serviced yet would have to wait longer.

There is always a vehicle parked on the street and the plow makes a mess trying to get around it. Can’t you have it towed away? During the day, unless the street is posted as “No Parking” or has specific parking restrictions, it is legal to park on the road However, by-law 3828-99 states that no person shall park a vehicle on any roadway during the months of December, January, February and March whether attended or unattended between the hours of 2:00 am and 7:00 am. One of the main obstacles for equipment operators is parked vehicles. Once snow starts, removing your vehicles from the street until the roads are cleared will allow the operators to remove the snow more efficiently.

I live on a corner lot. Why does the plow put so much snow in my driveway? Residents living on corner lots or the first on the right of an intersection usually get more snow deposited in their driveways. When the snowplow turns right it sweeps a much larger area of the road than when it is traveling in a straight line, as well, the snow also does not discharge from the plow truck. Turning right effectively makes the plow push most of the snow ahead instead of moving it from the centre of the road to the side. The first property and driveway encountered after the plow straightens out usually gets more snow than others in the immediate area.

Why is there more snow on my side of the street or I get more snow dumped in my driveway than my neighbour? There are several factors that affect why one area has more volume than another, including: · Sun / shade · Direction home faces (south, north, east, or west) · Number and distance between driveways · Adjacent to a corner or curve · Prevailing winds / drifting · Vehicles / obstacles in roadway · Neighbour pushes their snow onto the street · Side of driveway that residents pile their snow · Centre cross-over of plow

Why can’t the Town remove snow from my driveway entrance?

What about the fire hydrant in front of my house?

There would be a significant investment in equipment and increase in the winter control budget to remove snow from over 3,500 entrances in Arnprior. The present service is the most economical to the taxpayer. When shoveling your driveway, we suggest that you pile the snow on the left side of the driveway (facing the property), NOT on the roadway. This will give you a better line of vision of oncoming traffic, and when our plows go by we will not drag your shoveled piles back into your driveway entrance.

Obstructed fire hydrants can cause a delay in fire fighting and rescue operations. The Town clears snow that is obstructing access to fire hydrants as soon as feasible, however due to limited equipment and operators, this may not always be completed as quickly as we would like. Residents are urged to ensure that fire hydrants, as well as fire escapes, are clear of obstructions and snow accumulation.

Why can’t the Town remove the snow from the sidewalk in front of my property? As with driveway snow clearing, when you consider the length of sidewalks in the Town, it is just too costly and time consuming to use additional people and equipment to perform this service for all areas. Although you are not required to clear the sidewalk in front of your home, it does help to reduce the amount of snow volume in your driveway when the plow passes by. Also, you are providing a clear and safer access for residents using the sidewalk.

May I place the snow from my driveway onto the traveled portion of the street? NO. Placing snow on the traveled portion of the roadway is not permitted under the Town’s Bylaw. This regulation helps to ensure that potentially dangerous situations for motorists are avoided.

I have trouble shoveling my sidewalk and/or driveway. What can I do? Hopefully a friend, neighbour or a relative will be able to assist you. A young person in the neighbourhood could be hired for a small fee or a local community group or church may have a volunteer who will lend a helping hand. There are also a number of private snow clearing contractors who provide this service. Check the Yellow Pages for listings.

The snow bank at the street corner is too high and I cannot see oncoming traffic. What can be done? Every attempt is made to keep snow banks at corners to a minimum and is done between snowfall events. Special concerns should be directed to the Public Works Department at 613-623-4231.

I have to get out of my driveway for work / an appointment / etc. and the street has not been plowed. What should I do?

Why aren’t the trucks always out plowing when snowing? As with any job, employees are restricted under legislation, to work a maximum number of hours. Winter control schedules take into account weather conditions, air and roadway temperature, weather station data, available staff and equipment. The Town has contracted drivers and/or equipment to assist in winter control, as required.

Why does water pond around the catchbasins? Snow, ice and debris from roads and sidewalks can block catch basins (water drains). When this occurs, the possibility exists that melting snow will have nowhere to drain and create flood like conditions. The severity of potential flooding is determined by the snow volumes, how quickly the snow melts and how much rain is associated with that melt. Maintaining open drains (covers exposed) is key to reducing potential flood conditions. Do not pile snow on top of drains, and clear leaves and debris from around the cover in the fall and spring.

How can I help the Town do a good job? · Move all vehicles from the roadway during winter storm events. · Refrain from placing snow on the roadway when shoveling or plowing driveways, entrances and sidewalks. · Shovel the sidewalk in front of your home or business. · Remove snow from around fire hydrants. · Keep drainage catch basins clear of snow, ice and debris. · Be a good neighbour and help those who may not be able to shovel their driveways or walkways. · Be patient. In heavy snowfalls it takes longer to get all our streets cleared.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Town of Arnprior

During periods of heavy snowfalls, there may be delays. It is always best to plan ahead. If you know it is going to snow, leave yourself and extra hour or so when travelling in winter conditions. Don’t drive unless absolutely necessary, and please, be patient. If you must drive, please ensure your vehicle is equipped with appropriate tires and maintained properly for winter conditions (i.e. tires, fuel, windshield wiper blades and washer fluid, anti-freeze, blankets, etc.). 434309

St. Joe’s gives back to community with CPAN donation Lyn Smith from the Child Action Poverty Network visited St. Joseph’s Catholic School in Arnprior Dec. 9 to accept a $500 donation from the school council. Council member Julie Clarke was on hand to make the presentation. Early in the year, the school council felt they wanted to do something to contribute to needy families in the community. At the November meeting, council decided that making a donation to Operation Snowsuit, sponsored by CPAN, would be a great way to give back to the local community. In 2009-10, Operation Snowsuit supplied 273 children across Renfrew County with snowsuits, snow boots, mitts, hats

and scarves. This fall, CPAN already has 298 requests and the cold weather has just begun. CPAN also sponsors operation Backpack Plus, which supplies a backpack, school supplies and one pair of shoes for children in need. In addition, they provide activity funding to assist families in need so that their children can participate in extra-curricular activities, including hockey, soccer, swimming, etc. For information on how to donate gently used or new snowsuits or for further inquiries, contact the CPAN at 613-7352374,ext. 250 or email www.renfrewcountycpan.ca.

Eight-week session begins in January

Folk musician to play yoga studio Hollow Tree Yoga is offering a concert this Friday, Dec. 17 starring one of its students. Folk musician Craig Cardiff will present Live Sound and Flow from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the Arnprior yoga centre in downtown Arnprior. It will be a holiday celebration, with people encouraged to bring donations for the Arnprior Food Bank. The concert is the latest in a series of special evening yoga practices “uplifted and deepened” by live sound. Cardiff, who attends classes at Hollow Tree Yoga, has performed several shows in the Arnprior area. A release explaining Friday’s concert says he brings warmth, lightness, and depth to his performance, offering gifts of good natured humour about and thoughtful understanding of the human experience. Tea and a pot-luck snack will be served and a social time will follow the performance. Tickets cost $20 in advance and $25 at the door.

that researchers have found yoga may be superior to other forms of exercise in its positive effect on mood and anxiety. The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine is the first to demonstrate an association between yoga postures, increased GABA levels and decreased anxiety, she notes. Besides, in order to perform yoga postures, people have to be active listeners, follow instructions and pay attention to the instructor.

The Novagaia Yoga and Wellness Centre is offering an after-school yoga program in the new year for children and teenagers with attention deficit disorder. The eight-week-long session will run Mondays from 3:30 to 4:15 p.m., starting Jan. 3. Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) is a condition that affects many adults, not just children. Inability to focus, boredom and getting distracted easily can lead to learning difficulties, is a problem suffered by many. There are many high achievers, high talented, intelligent, creative people who have ADD. Because of the wiring of their brain, they get bored or are inattentive, especially when their creativity and intelligence are not being stimulated enough. Daydreaming can be more stimulating. They are natural learners when they are interested in something and can be very successful. Besides difficulty in focusing, people with ADD have a predisposition to mood disorders, anxiety and depression, which complicates matters. The question is: What can they do to overcome these obstacles and succeed? How can they better deal with the mood disorders? Paula Vibert of the Novagaia Yoga and Wellness Centre says

Combined with the postures, attention is paid to the breath, which, when regulated, triggers the relaxation response and the calming of the nervous system. Students in Arnprior with ADD can experience the benefits of yoga as they deal with their condition, improve the quality of their lives and acquire tools that allow them to be successful at what they do, says Vibert. For info call 613-623-6610 or email paula@paulavibert.com or visit the website www. novagaia.ca.

Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MPP John Yakabuski has backed a private members’ bill calling for a grow-op registry. The Clandestine Drug Operation Prevention Act, introduced by Nepean-Carleton MPP Lisa McLeod, would allow realtors and future homeowners to discover the past history of properties. It would also require building inspectors to take corrective steps to make the building safe again and to register the order against the title to the land. “For so many families in my riding, home ownership is the result of years of saving and hard work,” says Yakabuski, adding that if the McGuinty government is serious about protecting Ontario families from properties that were used in drug operations it will support McLeod’s bill. A current lack of tools to protect homebuyers can result in families unknowingly purchasing homes formerly used as grow ops, he said. “In these situations the homebuyer is on the hook for the cost of repairs, and could unknowingly be exposed to threats to their health,” said a Dec. 3 news release from Yakabuski’s office. According to the Insurance Bureau of Canada, landlords who have their investment homes destroyed by drug operations pay between $60,000 and $100,000 in repairs, it added. In January, police raided a home on Pine Grove Road in McNab-Braeside, finding about 1,400 pot plants inside. Police noted a growing number of grow-ops are being located in rural areas such as the Upper Ottawa Valley.

Arnprior OPP are investigating the “spray-painting vandalism” of the peacekeeping Armored Personnel Carrier (APC) located in front of the Arnprior Legion. A peace symbol was painted on the APC a few weeks ago, then last week the words ‘Tanks 4 nothing’ were written on it, causing several residents and Legion members to express anger at the attack. The OPP is asking for anyone with information as to who might be responsible to come forward with information. Police have investigated several of these incidents over the past few weeks including defacing of advertising billboards. Vandalism is a criminal offence, stress the OPP. POT SEIZED On Dec. 2, Arnprior OPP officers were conducting RIDE checks at Elgin and Division streets in Arnprior when they stopped a vehicle and seized a “substantial” amount of marijuana. A 20-year-old Burnstown man is charged with trafficking of a Schedule II substance plus one count of breach of probation. On Dec. 5, Arnprior OPP Const. Richardson attended a home in Arnprior in response to a complaint regarding a disturbance. As a result of his investigation, a quantity of marijuana was seized and an 18-year old Arnprior male has been charged with possession of a controlled substance. RIDE ARREST On Dec. 3, OPP officers conducting

Barn owners put on alert Barns in the area have been the target of thieves during the past week, warn Renfrew OPP. A barn on Cobus Road in Horton was entered overnight Dec. 6 with some of its contents stolen. On the same night, a barn on Cheese Factory Road in Admaston-Bromley was broken into and horse-related materials were stolen. Anyone with information is asked to call the OPP at 613-4323211. MISSING WOMAN FOUND A Valley woman reported missing to police last week has been located in Ottawa. Renfrew OPP appealed to the public on Dec. 16 to assist in locating Patricia Crocker. The OPP thanks the public for their assistance in the matter. DOMESTIC DISPUTES Renfrew OPP responded to five domestic disputes during last week. One man was charged with assault, choking and uttering threats and another was charged with break, enter and theft and two counts of breach of probation.

RIDE checks in Arnprior stopped a vehicle in which there was open liquor. Charged is a 21-year old Sault Ste. Marie man. Arnprior OPP will continue to conduct festive RIDE checks throughout the holiday season in order enhance public safety and prevent unnecessary suffering for families. Police remind everyone to use a designated driver or take a cab when out celebrating. This will ensure that everyone gets to and from events safely without causing an alcohol-related collision or facing alcohol-related criminal charges, acostly automatic mandatory driver’s license suspension, paying for mandatory vehicle towing and impoundment costs, and the installation of an ignition interlock device for your vehicles upon conviction. “Enjoy the season and remember to play safely.”

Arnprior OPP officers attended a home in town in response to a report of a domestic disturbance. As a result of the police investigation a 25-year-old Arnprior man has been charged with assault and uttering death threats. BAIL VIOLATION Arnprior OPP officer Drew Dunfield responded to a complaint at a local restaurant regarding a female who was breaching the conditions of her bail release. Charged with breaching conditions is a 24-year-old Arnprior woman. During the incident, a male patron became confrontational with the officers. A 29-year-old Kanata man was arrested and charged with breaching recognizance and taken to Arnprior OPP detachment where, as a result of further investigation, he was charged with assault causing bodily harm from a previous incident

in Arnprior. In all, Arnprior OPP Detachment officers attended 151 calls for service in the last week. SECURE YOUR VALUABLES With the Christmas shopping season upon us, the OPP remind shoppers that securing purchases in a vehicle trunk, out of sight of criminals, will make for a happier season for you and your loved ones and not so lucrative for would-be thieves. Also please keep your vehicles locked and remember not to leave your keys in running or unattended vehicle, urge police. Arnprior officers have been responding to numerous thefts from vehicles in recent weeks. Anyone with information regarding these thefts is encouraged to contact Arnprior OPP or CrimeStoppers.

ARRESTED AT HOSPITAL Arnprior OPP officers Paul Emon and Ken Rusaw responded to an unwanted person call at the Arnprior District Memorial Hospital emergency room. A 32-year-old McNab-Braeside man was arrested and held overnight at the Arnprior OPP detachment. He was charged with public intoxication. DOMESTIC CHARGES On Dec. 12 at 3 p.m.,

Major square dance planned for Jan. 8 in Carleton Place

Put laughter in your stocking Casey Corbin will be coming home to Arnprior this holiday season to relax for a few days after another busy year traveling coast to coast delivering side-splitting, cheek-hurting laughs. He even managed a jump “across the pond” to England to introduce his brand of down-home talent. His comedic style covers a unique slant on everyday life, current affairs and events and personal life experiences. On Monday, Dec. 28 at the Arnprior

Curling Club, he is hoping comedy enthusiasts can join him and other Arnprior performers, Scott McMann and Dave Brydges. Showtime is 8 p.m. and the tickets cost $15. Tickets are available at the Kenwood Athletic Centre and Peebles in the Arnprior mall. Reservations for the Dec. 28 comedy show can also be made by calling 613-4355377.

Members of Mississippi Squares raised $302 as a donation to the Lanark County Food Bank Dec. 11. The annual Christmas dinner/dance festivities featured the club’s callers, Graham Ingram and Dave Crawford. A great meal was provided by the women’s auxiliary at the St. James Anglican Church Hall in Carleton Place. To help another charitable organiza-

tion and continue the theme of Friendship Set to Music, the Mississippi Squares will be hosting their annual ‘Halfway Dance’ in Carleton Place Saturday, Jan 8 for modern square dancers. The dance is expected to attract 400 to 500 dancers from Eastern and Northern Ontario and Southern Quebec. All former dancers are welcome to attend.

On all occasions, the bears Groundhogs are true hibernators, in fact the world’s larg- became animated when I ap-

proached their den. Actually, “den” may not appropriately describe where Black Bears spend the winter. Some bears do retreat into hollow trees or logs while others sleep under roots or trunks of overturned trees. Some apparently just lie in a depression and become covered by snow. Dormancy often begins in November, but in milder Decembers (which we have not really had) or in years when food is hard to find (which might be the case?), Black Bears stay active longer. Their fall diet usually consists of items rich in fat and protein, with acorns and beechnuts being favourites. The resulting fat helps keep bears warm through the winter and also sustains them nutritionally. This latter function is likely very important in early spring when bears leave their dens and begin searching for any scant food that might be available, such as new grasses and poplar.

JANUARY BIRTHS

Female bears give birth in their dens in January. Newborns are little more than chipmunksized maggots, weighing about a bag of potato chips (250 grams), and lacking hair and developed limbs. They spend the next winter in a considerably more advanced state with their mother. In the autumn, bears that wander into urban areas often visit bird-feeders. For that reason the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources recommends that people do not feed birds at this time of year if living in bear country. As for me, I would find the experience of having a big black animal visiting my feeders unbearably exciting! The Pakenham-Arnprior Christmas Bird Count is taking place on Boxing Day. For more information, please contact me. The Nature Number is 613-3872503; email is mruntz@start.ca.

In his column in last week’s Renfrew Mercury, Jim Ferguson reports that Joanne McLaren saw two rough-legged hawks hunting from the hydro poles along Stevenson Drive in McNab-Braeside. She says the birds return to the same area each fall to hunt. The hawks remain until there is too much snow for them to find mice and voles, their main food items. Juvenile birds have a single broad, dark tail band (adults have two) and the legs are heavily feathered to the toes in all plumages, writes Ferguson. Like the adults the immature birds hover in flight by flapping upwind to maintain their position above their prey. A northern harrier has been seen in the same hunting area. The Renfrew-area Christmas bird count will be held earlier than usual, this Saturday, Dec. 18. If you wish to participate give Ferguson a call at 613-4322738 or email jamesh@nrtco. net.

White THIS WEEK’S FEATURE Lake Marina adds new parts service White Lake Marina has launched Mercury Parts Express in Canada. In a news release, the marina points out that until now, the only way to buy genuine Mercury Marine parts, oils and accessories for a Mercury engine in Canada was to go directly to a dealer. Now that Mercury Parts Express is available north of the border, you can look up the parts you need for your engine yourself on the same state-ofthe-art Electronic Parts Catalog that dealers use and order securely online, adds the release. This will particularly benefit do-it-yourselfers, helping them make sure they have ordered the right part. Orders can be picked up at White Lake Marina or shipped right to the door of whomever ordered it. For more information on White Lake Marina, Mercury Marine and Mercury Parts Express Canada, visit www. whitelakemarina.ca or call at 613-623-2568.

EVERY DAY UNTIL CHRISTMAS! *THUR & FRI UNTIL 8PM


Ice ‘extremely dangerous’: OPP The OPP (Snowmobile, All-Terrain Vehicle and Vessel Enforcement (S.A.V.E.) team has issued a warning about the dangers of venturing out on frozen waterways. “Even though there is ice on area lakes and rivers and it may look good, beware,” says a SAVE news release. “No ice is without some risk.” The OPP emphasizes that ice fishing, walking and cross-country skiing all require at least 4” (10 cm) of new clear hard ice (for one person). One snowmobile or one all-terrain vehicle requires at least 5” (12 cm) of new

clear hard ice. One vehicle, car or small pick-up all require at least 8” to 12” (20 to 30 cm) of new clear hard ice. A mediumsized truck requires at least 12” to 15” (30 to 38cm) of ice.

Nicolas Ruszkowski

CHECK THICKNESS Always check the ice in several places before traveling onto it, urge police. “Wear a floatation suit and carry ice picks. If you go onto the ice be prepared to get wet and get yourself out. “Don’t endanger your life or the life of someone else.”

Commotion just a sale promo, police find A sales promotion as a local dealership caused a stir last week. The Ottawa Police Service reports a passerby called OPP dispatchers at around 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 8 to report a suspicious incident at the McAllister Ford Dealership on the outskirts of Arnprior. Several cars were sounding their alarms and flashing their lights, the caller said. While relaying the call onto the Ottawa Police Service, the OPP dispatcher noted her sources in

Viruses: a new cancer-fighting machine?

Arnprior suspected the commotion was related to some sort of sales event. OPS officers investigated and confirmed their suspicions — the commotion was a marketing stunt to draw people’s attention to the big Ford sales event. But for at least for one caller, the flashing lights and the sounding horns were eye-catchingly suspicious. DEER COLLISIONS Meanwhile, Ottawa Police are continuing to re-

mind motorists about the dangers of deer-vehicle collisions in West Carleton. For the week of Dec. 3-9, five deer-related accidents were reported in the West Carleton area. “Not wanting to sound like a broken record, but please keep a sharp eye out for deer and continue steering clear of them,” says a police report. “Remember to scan the road ahead from shoulder to shoulder, use high beams at night where possible, stay in control by watching your speed.

About 10 years ago, he discovered that the genetic mutations that occur when cells become cancerous make them more susceptible to certain viruses. Using this knowledge, he manufactures viruses, turning them into cancer-fighting machines that destroy tumours without harming normal tissue. Can you imagine a world where chemotherapy or radiation are obsolete?

Nicolas Ruszkowski VP, Communications Ottawa Hospital Ottawa, December 7, 2010 Almost 50% of patients at our hospital are admitted with cancer or a cancer-related condition. Cancer is a big deal. It has, or will affect someone you know. This spring, Liz Ellwood – the founder of Fertile Future (www.fertilefuture.ca) – spoke to about 500 members of our management team about her experience with cancer. She shed light on the connection between cancer and infertility. Radiation or chemotherapy treatment – particularly in ovarian or cervical cancer – can cause irreversible harm to a woman’s reproductive ability. Testicular cancer can have the same impact on men. It was a dramatic reminder of the risks of traditional cancer therapy. Dr. John Bell, a researcher at The Ottawa Hospital Research Institute, recently received the Dr. J. David Grimes Research Career Achievement Award for his research into a therapy that has the potential to remove such risks: “oncolytic viruses”.

Recently, Dr. Bell and his partners began testing such viruses among cancer patients in Canada, the USA and Asia. These “Phase I” trials – conducted with people for whom all other treatment has failed and who are not expected to survive –determine if the new therapy is safe, and if so, what dose to use for future studies. The viruses have proven safe, with few side effects. They also show encouraging results. In one trial, a liver cancer patient whose tumour had spread to the neck saw the growth almost disappear after it was injected with the virus. Another trial tested intravenous injection of an oncolytic virus in 23 patients with various end-stage cancers. It was the first in the world to show that a virus can selectively replicate inside tumours after intravenous delivery. The finding shows that in addition to primary tumours, the viruses can attack metastases. Determining whether the viruses will lead to a cure will take more trials and many more years. But for the first time, we honestly hope that that if a cure for cancer is ever found, it could come from research being led right here in Ottawa.

Optimist tree pick-up Jan. 2 SHERRY HAAIMA shaaima@msn.com

It’s the 50th anniversary for the Arnprior Optimist Club and the members have decided to add a new twist to their annual Christmas tree fundraiser. As they’ve done for the past 40 years, the Optimists sold Christmas trees at their Daniel Street location in front of the Arnprior Shopping Centre. But this year, they’ll pick up trees when Christmas is over. For this new fundraiser, Optimists will be cruising the streets of Arnprior on Jan. 2. from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. If they see a tree at the curb, they will knock at the door and see if the resident would like it removed. A minimum $5 donation would be appreciated, says Optimist Darren England. The trees will then be taken to the Arnprior landfill site. Payments must be made at time of pick-up and the fundraiser will run within Arnprior’s town limits.

The club is always coming up with new ideas for fundraisers and England says if the tree pick-up is successful, it may be expanded into McNab-Braeside Township. Once residents learn of the project, he hopes they’ll plan to have their trees out in time for Jan. 2. One hundred per cent of the funds benefit the people of this area, notes England. “All of our money goes back into the children of our community,” he says. This year’s tree-selling project was one of the most successful ever with the club selling out over last weekend. More trees will be ordered next year to keep up with demand, says England. Next up for the Optimists is the annual winter carnival being Jan. 20-22. Along with the Jack Smith Memorial Hockey Tournament, this year’s carnival will include school obstacle relay races at the Nick Smith Centre, free public swimming and skating, a youth talent contest, and a shanty breakfast.

Fisher savours ‘second home’ with Senators By Rob Brodie OttawaSenators.com In a lot of eyes, he’ll always be that fresh-faced young player who brings an abundance of energy every time he’s on the ice. So when you hear Mike Fisher suggest — in a joking tone, mind you — that “I’m no spring chicken anymore,” it’s easy to quickly dismiss such a thought. And at age 30, the Ottawa Senators centre is far from the end of the line in National Hockey League terms. But the fact that Fisher is now in his 11th season with the team… even that seems a little much to fathom for a guy who,

along with captain Daniel Alfredsson and defenceman Chris Phillips, forms the Senators’ veteran core. “It sure has gone fast, that’s for sure,” Fisher said when asked about his longevity in Ottawa. “It seems like almost yesterday that I was coming in here as a young guy. Then before you know it, it’s 11 years later. You don’t realize how fast it goes. “I think it makes you appreciate playing in this game. I’ve been blessed to be able to stay in Ottawa. I love it here. It’s become like my second home. I feel very fortunate.” Truth be told, Fisher had a

sense this was the right place to be right from that June day in Buffalo, when the Senators made him their second-round pick (44th overall) in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft. “I had lots of relatives there,” Fisher said in recalling a day that is special for every aspiring young hockey player. “An aunt and uncle from Ottawa, they were there. My family is from Peterborough. So when my name was called by Ottawa, I was pretty excited to be coming (to a team) so close to home. I think my whole family was, too. It was one of my teams that I would have loved to have (been drafted by) and it worked out.” Fisher joined the Senators as a 19-year-old, admittedly in awe of players such as Alfredsson, Marian Hossa and Alexei Yashin, who were the team’s stars when he first arrived on the scene. Only Alfredsson and Phillips remain from Fisher’s first Senators team and now he’s one of the guys the younger generation looks up to for advice and guidance. “I like being in a leadership role,” said Fisher. “It doesn’t matter how old you are, you

can still learn and grow and do a lot of different things better. I’m still trying to do that. At this point in my career, I know I still have a lot more in me and I don’t want to leave anything behind when it’s all said and done.” There might be nobody better than Fisher to tell the next crop of Senators how good life can be in Ottawa — not that he imagined it all playing out this way. Fans still adore him and his tireless work with Roger’s House and other charities has made him a community icon. Life got even better during the summer when Fisher married country music superstar Carrie Underwood in a lavish Georgia wedding. “You never really know what life is going to bring sometimes,” said Fisher. “But I’m very fortunate to be in the league this long and to play for Ottawa.… I love playing here every night. The fans have been really good to me and I’m grateful for that. Hopefully, I can call it home for the rest of my career. That would be ideal.”

The Capitals have wasted little time in showing they’re among the elite teams in the Eastern Conference once again. Any discussion about the Caps always begins and ends with the mercurial Alex Ovechkin, a goal-scoring threat every time he touches the puck. He gets plenty of support up front from the likes of Alexander Semin and Nicklas Backstrom, while Brooks Laich and Mike Knuble supply a dose of grit. Mike Green ranks among the NHL’s top offensive threats on the blue line, with rookie John Carlson a rising young talent. The unheralded Michal Neuvirth has carried the bulk of the goaltending load so far.
