Arnprior residents are back to weekly garbage pick-up starting Wednesday, Aug. 3, thanks in large part to a fiery speech by Reeve Walter Stack at Monday’s council meeting. In a dramatic twist, just enough councillors sided with Stack to reject staff ’s recommendation to go with a cheaper option that would mirror the current bi-weekly winter pickup. In her report, environmental engineering technologist Abby Barclay said Tomlinson would do three years (with an optional two

more) at a little over $374,000, plus fuel surcharges and HST for 39 weeks of pick-up. “(It) will provide the town with the best service for the town’s waste management programs and enables flexibility in the contract,” Barclay wrote. Stack rejected the “best service” and “flexibility” statements because they were mere assertions with no arguments to back them up. However, on the cost-savings aspect he counted with anecdotal evidence before making a general claim. Stack said while door knocking during the election campaign, many residents – especially those with young families – complained about the bi-weekly pickup.

Rats are in town now, he added. He insisted the current program is causing a health and safety problem. “For the tax rate people pay in this town, it is beyond me why we can’t pick up the garbage once a week,” Stack said. “It’s a problem I heard lots about in the election last fall, and I’m sure others at this table did, too.” See ARNPRIOR COUNCIL Page 3

Massive search for naught? DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@metroland.com

Rescue units didn’t find anything unusual after it was reported a person jumped into the Madawaska River below the bridge in Arnprior Sunday night. At about 10:30 p.m., someone called OPP to report a man clad only in shorts was below the weir at the island where the Canada Day fireworks are set off. The person disappeared moments later, possibly having jumped in the river. The report set off an extensive search. Arnprior OPP called in its marine unit. The Arnprior fire department water rescue unit was also paged. A grid search was held on the Madawaska River below the bridge and at the mouth of the Ottawa River. To help with the search, Ontario Power Generation, at the request of the OPP and fire department, closed the dam to temporarily stop water flow, making the search much easier. A shore search was also conducted. However, after more than 25 emergency workers searched for close to four hours, nothing was found. The fire rescue zodiac

called it a night about 1:15 p.m. and the OPP marine unit left shortly after 2 p.m. Arnprior fire chief John Okum said there was no evidence of the man. There were no fishing gear, personal belongings or even wet tracks coming out of the river, he said. OPP Staff Sgt. Mike Forster said Gatineau and Ottawa police were asked to notify Arnprior if a body is found downstream. No one has been reported missing, he said. Okum said the incident is a reminder to the public not to swim or take risks in the area below the bridge. “Those waters are extremely dangerous and extremely unpredictable,” he said. “No one should be in that water.” He noted OPG’s ‘Stay Clear, Stay Safe’ campaign illustrates the danger of water below dams. People have a “great municipal park (Robert Simpson Park), complete with beach and splash pad … if they want to cool off,” Okum said. While it appears no one was injured or killed this time, the incident wasn’t without its cost. “A lot of resources went into the search,” noted Okum.

SHERRY HAAIMA

Beaumen holds the existing contracts in both municipalities. Recommendations are likely to come to councils for decisions July 25 in Arnprior and July 27 in Renfrew.

Sherry.haaima@metroland.com

The tenders for recycling contracts for Arnprior and Renfrew are in and it’s time to crunch the numbers. “Now I think we have our work cut out for us to evaluate the bids, make heads or tails and make recommendations to council,” said Renfrew director of development and works Mike Asselin. Tenders were opened at a meeting July 12 in the board room at the town hall in Renfrew. Tenders were to include total annual costs for both five-year and seven-year terms. Companies were invited to submit costs for two options, one that included 50 per cent revenuesharing and one without. The two companies that tendered had representatives on hand for the opening. Jeff Murray attended for Tomlinson Environmental Services Ltd. and Dan Menard for Beaumen Waste Management Systems Ltd Beaumen’s first option for the Renfrew contract, with no revenue-sharing, was $198,714.57 annually for the five-year term and $210,196.27 annually for seven. With revenue-sharing, the annual figures were $246,991.78 and 264,214.34. Tomlinson chose not to bid on the first option, so the bid with revenue-sharing on the Renfrew contract was $420,129.29 annually for five years and $420,129.29 an-

Murray noted that an alternate option was attached to the company’s tender. Traditionally, said Murray, alternate options are not read out at tender openings, so the details were not made public. For the Arnprior contract, again no bid was submitted by Tomlinson for the nonrevenue-sharing option. With revenue-sharing, Tomlinson came in at an annual cost of $324,564.38 for five

years and $324,564.38 per year for seven. For the Arnprior contract, for the norevenue-sharing option, Beaumen’s annual bid was $189,010.35 for five years and $200,024.92 per year for seven. With revenue sharing, Beaumen’s annual bids were $234,243.80 and $250,765.65.

Arnprior council votes for two bags each week Continued from front Councillors Lynn Grinstead, Lyle Anderson and Dan Lynch agreed with Stack. Lynch said the current program makes apartment buildings unsafe. Grinstead went so far as to doubt the results of a survey issued by the town asking response on a variety of issues, including garbage. Mayor David Reid pointed out that, of the 284 respondents, 22 said the service was adequate and didn’t want to pay more. “I can’t imagine the survey supports pick-up every two weeks,” Grinstead said. Coun. Mark Willmer said if bi-weekly pickup is dropped, more recyclables will end up in the weekly garbage pick-up, filling up the landfill that much quicker. Thus reducing its lifespan. A STEP BACKWARDS Willmer said when he started on council, garbage pick-up was eight bags twice a week. Arnprior was a leader in diverting materials away from the landfill, he said. And at a time when neighbouring municipalities are moving toward bi-weekly pickup, it makes little sense for Arnprior to regress. “I think we are taking a step backwards,” Willmer said. “Each year we seem to get used to (bi-weekly pick-up) a little more. From an environmental perspective, it (going weekly) is a step backwards.” Anderson said in response that most people are concerned with reducing or at least maintaining the tax rate. It would become the first time Reid was on the

losing side of a significant vote since winning the mayor’s job. Willmer and Coun. Ted Strike also lost to Stack’s group. With the staff recommendation defeated, Stack suggested council accept an option that would see Topps Environmental Solutions do a three-year, 52-week pick-up for almost $458,000. It, too, offered an additional two-year option for renewal, along with fuel surcharges and HST. It was seconded by Grinstead. Staff said some on council, Strike in particular, were not pleased with how Topps operated the landfill site (Tomlinson took over running the landfill July 1, putting in the successful bid in a tender process that Topps did not take part in). Strike and Reid said the landfill is different than operating a garbage truck business, and that there are securities in place should Topps’ work be subpar. On the issue that recycling will end up in regular garbage bags, Lynch told staff to consider making clear bags the rule so materials could be examined before tossed into trucks. Stack’s motion that Topps takeover the garbage pick-up won votes from Grinstead, Lynch and Anderson. As a result, the town will pick up two bags every week, all year long. The cost is about $5 extra per resident, per year over the staff ’s recommendation. That equals about $30,000 per year, a chunk of change Reid said adds up year over year. However,

Reeve wary of CIP Uncertainty about costs concerns councillor DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@metroland.com

Arnprior Reeve Walter Stack continues to look askance at the community improvement plan (CIP), a bureaucratic document used to guide growth in a municipality. At Monday evening’s council meeting, staff once again needed council’s stamp of approval to move the document toward implementation. Stack said he won’t participate in CIP votes until he sees a dollar figure on how much of the budget staff expects council to contribute toward it. “It has no meat unless we give money to it,” Stack said. Mayor David Reid assured him council will have the final say on how much money will go toward the CIP, which breaks town into five precincts to improve: downtown, Daniel Street, Madawaska, Highway 17, and waterfront. Stack’s other concern is that one or more precincts will be favoured over the others. Planner Robin Smith said all projects will be judged on their merit and that the CIP will be of benefit, not just private developers, but public as well. The town and developers could be in line for provincial dollars through the CIP program. HEALTH UNIT CLOSURE Stack mentioned his disappointment in not hearing from the Arnprior District Memorial Hospital (ADMH) in mid-May when the decision was made to terminate the Renfrew County Public Health

Unit’s lease. The move was done to make room for the new 11-person family health team. He said “the hospital” knew about the dust-up that occurred a few years ago when the health unit partially pulled out of town. ADMH CEO Eric Hanna, on Tuesday morning, said he notified the hospital’s board of directors at the time. He also called the building a “private” operation within the hospital, and that it hasn’t been past practice to tell town council or anyone else details related to a tenant’s occupation. Reid, a landlord himself for many years, said on Wednesday it would be inappropriate for ADMH to talk publically about a tenant’s intentions. He added the town has yet to receive a response to the letter CAO Larry Donaldson sent to the health unit asking for an explanation. If the town doesn’t receive one, another request will be sent. COUNCILLOR RETURNS Coun. Mark Willmer returned to the council chamber after missing most of the winter and spring due to illness. He thanked his colleagues and staff for “picking up the slack” and for not asking him to step down from council. (Willmer refused to accept his pay while on sick leave.) He also thanked the many people for their support and well wishes, some of whom he didn’t know beforehand. Reid said it was great to have him back and wished him long health into the future.

Council willing to help with Arnprior Fair Arnprior Reeve Walter Stack said he doesn’t want to see another kerfuffle between the town and the Arnprior Agricultural Society. Last year there was some back and forth over wheth-

er the Ag society, made up of volunteers who host the annual fair, should receive extra free passes to the dump. “This is an organization that’s been around for 157 years,” he said.

Impressions shared tonight in the ’Prior The public is invited to a meeting tonight (Thursday) to hear how a Kemptville contingent views Arnprior’s downtown. Recently Arnprior participated in the First Impressions Community Exchange program co-ordinated by the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food, and Rural Affairs. The program involved Arnprior being partnered with Kemptville to offer feedback on each other’s downtowns. The Kemptville team members will present their impressions of Arnprior and opportunities they have identified at 6:30 p.m. in the Arnprior Legion. Arnprior economic development officer Erin Clarke presented the Arnprior’s impressions at a meeting in Kemptville Tuesday.

Young girl mourned The White Lake area is mourning the death of a young girl who bravely fought a disabilitating disease. Allison Margaret Hapgood died Sunday at the age of 12. The community had rallied around the family in support of her fight. For more, see Page 69.

“If they need in-kind services, they should be specific, but the town allow it.” Coun. Lynn Grinstead said the Ag society’s requests will be ready for the July 25 council meeting.

McNab-Braeside Mayor Mary Campbell was quite impressed with the support for this year’s McNab Days festival. Council, the community and the media are credited with the success of McNab Days, said Campbell at the July 3 council meeting. “This was a success because council was behind it – it’s that simple,” said Campbell. “Each of you put in time and effort on an event,” she told council. “Whether we do it in the future, whether we have it or not, council gave it their all – 150 per cent – behind it,” she said. She also gave kudos to local media coverage of the festival. “If you hadn’t attended, it made you

Efforts combine to make festival a success want to have been there,” said Campbell. Council also approved 29.5 hours of overtime for the McNab Days events for part-time recreation director Geoff Patterson, who also made a large contribution with his participation. “One of the most exciting things about Mr. Patterson’s participation is his interaction with the community,” said Campbell. She asked councillours whether they were ready to commit to holding the festival next year and most agreed waiting for the final numbers and reports to come in will better gauge the feasibility of repeating the event. Campbell said she suspects the festival budget will balance. While numbers at the

Sandvik worried about increased labour costs Continued from front “No one likes to strike,” union spokesman Derek Mosley said while standing across the street from the plant with others brandishing ‘On strike’ signs. “But if they want to strip us of our ability to retire with dignity and respect, they leave us no choice but to go on strike.” The union is asking for a “small” wage increase; however, the main sticking points are to keep pensions and a bereavement package, Mosley said. He is unaware of the company’s profitability. Sandvik general manager Michael Hall issued a statement saying the union’s current, reduced demands will increase the company’s labour costs by a minimum of six per cent a year for three consecutive years. “This is something that simply cannot be sustained in light of the state of manufacturing in Canada,” Hall wrote. “In addition to the economic pressures faced by the company in consequence of the economic climate in the NAFTA market, much of the cost pressure the company is experiencing is related to the fully company-funded and generous pension plan the company provides its employees.” Sandvik has since withdrawn the “partial offset” to increased pension funding, he added, in light of the union’s unwillingness to move on the issue.

Hall went on to say the provincial government’s demand that the company make “significant” payments into the pension plan, represents a 13 per cent increase in labour costs in each of the next five years. “(It) has seriously compromised the company’s ability to meet the other financial demands made by the union,” Hall said. Negotiations between CAW Local 2228 and Sandvik have been ongoing since June 15, with the collective agreement having expired July 1. Mosley said he is aware many people will say unionized workers are lucky to have a job, and that a pro-corporation federal government – shown when it offered Canada Post’s employees less than the company’s final offer – makes for a difficult context for strikers. But he is confident workers are united. “They are 100 per cent strong,” he said. “The solidarity within this union has never been stronger than it is right now.” He added that it isn’t just 150 workers affected; it’s 150 families from Arnprior and area, which contribute greatly to the local economy. Sandvik in Arnprior has not faced a strike before in its 36-year history. A labour dispute that also revolved around pension changes was narrowly averted at the last minute at Arnpror Aerospace earlier this year.

gate were not as high as expected more individual passes were purchased. “We’re not going to be far off on the money,” said Campbell. About 135 people attended the Thursday ceilidh, about 380 the Riverdriver festival on Saturday, about 200 the Burstown Women’s Institute anniversary event Saturday and between 400 and 500 at the Scottish and Healthy Living Festivals Sunday, said Campbell. One of the positives that came out of the festival, combined with the recent Renfrew County Expo 150, was increased awareness of Waba Cottage Museum and Gardens in White Lake, where the Thursday evening ceilidh and Sunday events were held. “I think we probably doubled the amount of people who know it’s there now,” said Coun. Brad McIlquham, a member of the museum committee. Some 400 brochures were given out at the Expo alone, said McIlquham. Thanks in part to an adjustment of the museum’s attendant Jim Austin’s hours, the museum and gardens are now open every day of the week.

Successful fly-in breakfast keeps soaring DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@metroland.com

Most of the 900 or more who arrived at the Arnprior Airport Sunday for the annual Fly-In Breakfast were happy to have a hearty meal of ham, beans and more. Few intended to do more than stroll by the planes on display, maybe stop to admire a classic car or two on site. Not Ashley Pitcher. Young Ashley, who along with her family travelled all the way from Rockland to visit organizer Mike Asselin Sunday morning, had a big treat for desert. “It’s my first time flying,” Pitcher said, moments before climbing into a plane for a tour of the Arnprior area. “I’m really excited, except it’s going to hurt my ears,” she said. “My mom’s going to take pictures and the breakfast was really good. I liked the potatoes.” Those who stayed on the ground weren’t disappointed. Many saw – and heard – the two big trainer MIG jets. One stayed an extra hour and a half because of a dead battery. (A helicopter was called in to help.) Another exciting moment was when five planes in formation flew in. A Second World War biplane was there. It took a while to hand crank the thing, but it got done. Vintage Wings of Canada brought three planes. Some planes had glass covers, others the engine in back. It was a motley collection. “It went extremely well and we had a lot of planes,” said airport Dan Lynch, who is also an Arnprior councillor. “It was a busy day, for sure.” At least 80 planes arrived, far more than last year. Asselin, offering an explanation for why the annual event has taken off in recent years, said many people are like Pitcher in that they rarely get to see planes up close. The Canadian Owners and Pilots Association (COPA) Flight 33, of which Asselin is a member, use funds raised from the break-

fast to promote aviation and airport projects. The latter are needed now that Transport Canada has divested itself from small municipal airports across the country. Many are suffering or shutting down, but Arnprior’s is a success story. It sells hangars (most airports rent them), and charges fees for

a variety of activities, generating far more revenue for the town than it takes. Beyond the economic factor, though, Asselin said it is important to keep airports alive for what they do to the human spirit. “If you’ve never flown before and never seen the perspective

from that height,” he said, “you get a different appreciation for your community and your environment.” Pilots from clubs all over Eastern Ontario attended Sunday’s breakfast to show off and chat about their planes. Stan Klosowski remembers when the event was a much smaller affair.

He has another theory as to why it has grown into such a huge success. “I think it’s all about the committee of volunteers,” Klosowski said. The one change for next year? Parking will likely be more structured then this year, perhaps with a charge added.

Super bug not affecting ADMH DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@metroland.com

Officials at the Arnprior District Memorial Hospital feel their safety procedures are adequate in the face of a super bug that has caused a series of deaths in southern Ontario. At least 17 people, mainly elderly, have died after becoming infected with C. difficile (Clostridium difficile) in the Niagara region. C. difficile causes diarrhea and is one of the most common infections in hospitals and long-term care facilities. “We don’t have any concern right now,” said Leah Levesque, ADMH’s chief nursing executive. “Typically C. difficile is caused by being on antibiotics for a time.” Antibiotics suppress the immune system. Hospitals often have one or two cases of C. difficile at any given time, she said. Patients who arrive at hospital with diarrhea will be isolated. The area and instruments used will be scrubbed more than others, because a spore can survive for up to five days on a surface, Levesque added. The hospital had a recent case of a patient suffering from C. difficile, which lodges itself in the gastrointestinal tract. Were someone to die from it, the hospital would call in the regional effective control network and a team from the ministry of health to do reports and make recommendations. Meanwhile, hospital staff across the province are encouraged to wash hands frequently. The average is 65 per cent. ADMH’s is 82 per cent. But Levesque would like to see compliance reach 95 per cent.

BEAR-Y SUCCESSFUL RAFFLE A recent raffle in support of the KatieBears campaign raised almost $1,400 for the organization, which gives out bears at parades and community events. Above, Lynda Fraser, right, and Lyndsey Sherman pose with several bears and a few of the prizes after the draw. KatieBears is named for Fraser’s daughter, who passed away in August 2009. Winners and prizes include: Brenda Budarick (Kobo EReader), Katherine Haines (golf passes), Rae Ann Dagenais ($50 gift card), Josee Barrett (murder mystery game), Lena Lambert (murder mystery game), Line Agnew (murder mystery game), Cory Matthews (blues clues party kit), Mike Muldoon (McDonald’s gift pack) and Erik Brisbois (McDonald’s gift pack).

True value of free fishing week There has long been a rather strange tension between two groups one might expect to share common goals, if not common means for reaching those goals. For simplicity sake we will label one group “environmentalists” and the other “conservationists.” Both want the best for nature. However, generally speaking, environmentalists prefer a hands-off approach. So long as humans don’t get involved in natural processes, or at the very least remove themselves from processes that have become horribly corrupted, nature will rehabilitate itself. Conservationists, again generally speaking, prefer taking a management role. People should make use of the bounty offered on Earth. Obviously there is much overlap. Not all environmentalists spend their time in large cities lobbying governments to prevent even good work getting done to restore wilderness areas. And not all conservationists release their catch, so to speak. There are less than ideal candidates on both sides. Still, we champion many of the activities that are conceived and administered by conservationists. One such activity, Ontario Family Fishing Week, officially ended last Sunday. Ontario Family Fishing Week is a chance for families that wouldn’t normally consider spending time in Canada’s great outdoors to pick up a rod and reel and hit the water. It is the one week of the summer that fishing licences are unnecessary. There are also programs to loan tackle, teach people how to tie a line and remove other barriers. This is not to mention the hundreds of contests and derbies across the province. Last weekend, the fish and game club in Calabogie held a fishing derby on Calabogie Lake. The Ottawa Valley Muskie Club brought kids out to the Ottawa River to try to catch the elusive ‘fish of a thousand casts.’ We could wax on about how fishing is a great way for families to spend time together; about how fishing is a great way to spend solitary time on the water, maybe contemplating life or letting all the stress of life slide away. We could also talk about how the economic spin-offs from non-commercial sport fishing does wonders for rural economies. But we won’t delve deeply into the reasons conservationists are right when it comes to fishing (when practiced in moderation). Suffice to say the best way to save the environment is the age-old ‘useit-or-lose-it’ principle. Only those who make use of, thus benefit from, the environment understand its true value.

LETTERS

Show exuded Canadian pride To the editor: I’m writing in regards to the great show of Canadian pride held once again at the Giant Tiger parking lot. What a great time. The music was great and the food was free. That’s right. Free once again. The people involved with this giving event ooze Canadian pride. Thank you so much to all of you. The music was donated free by Gary and John, just two guys on guitar with friends such as Don Lascelle, Buster Brown, Mark Reid and Miles. Hot dogs provided by George and 200 hamburgers donated by Howie Lebrun. Great job, guys. The food was great and thank you to the cooks. Job well done. I’m proud to be from Canada and it’s acts like this from people like this that makes me proud to call Arnprior home. Thanks again and I hope to see you all again next year. R. Smith Arnprior

Challenges, frustrations in forestry industry To the editor, At a recent meeting of Renfrew County’s Forestry Committee, it was brought to our attention that local politicians were getting a lot of questions asking what was happening to help the forest industry locally. I am writing to update what County of Renfrew staff and elected officials have been doing. Most county residents are aware the closure of two main facilities, Smurfit-Stone in Portage du Fort and ATC Panels in Pembroke, greatly affected the forest industry in the County. These two facilities took delivery of a large amount of low-quality forest products and sawmill residues. In order for the forest industry to survive, they must market these materials; even a perfect load of logs generates about 50 per cent residues in bark, sawdust and slabs. These residues don’t generate much money for the forest industry, but they must be sold to “make ends meet,” much like a beef producer must sell hamburger along with the steak. In a logging operation, upwards of 70 per cent of the material harvested is not suitable for uses other than pulp, and it is not economically feasible (nor environmentally sound) to harvest only the higher quality logs.

Established in 1879

Why has the market for low-end forest fibre declined? In this era of electronic communication, there is a perception that paper use is declining, but that isn’t the whole story with the pulp and paper industry. What has mainly affected the industry in Canada is our inability to compete globally; many other countries now have paper mills, and they produce fibre much more cheaply than we can. Some have balanced rules with the need for jobs and wealth creation in rural areas; they view the forest industry as a vital, renewable and inherently sustainable sector that must not be squandered. In some cases, they have little regard for the environment, pay very low wages, have low energy costs and can grow fibre-quality trees much more quickly than we can. Using wood fibre to create energy seems like a simple solution. Convert your bad wood into pellets, or burn it to create steam to turn turbines and sell electricity. This is actually pretty old technology and it has been used in Europe and the northern United States for decades; it is effective and carbon-neutral.

The heat generated from burning the wood can be used to heat homes, greenhouses, dry lumber, etc., in what is called a co-generation or combined heat and power (CHP) system. Over the past two and a half years, County of Renfrew Economic Development and Forestry staff and local elected officials have met with over 30 potential investor groups with the objective of establishing either a pellet plant or a wood-burning electrical generation facility. So why hasn’t anybody built one? First of all, we can’t produce pellets at a price that works compared to cheap fossil fuels, especially natural gas. We cannot compete with off-shore pellet producers for many of the same reasons we can’t compete in international pulp markets – they have cheaper wood, cheaper labour and other cheaper inputs. A pellet plant, producing pellets to sell into the international market, needs to be on or near a saltwater port, or have access to efficient rail transportation. With the abandonment of the railways here in the Valley, that opportunity is now lost.

JIM SILYE Guest columnist

I grew up in Arnprior and in 1969 at 22 years of age, I moved to Calgary, Alberta, to pursue a football career. After 40 years in the West, on Dec. 1, 2009, I moved back to Arnprior. This move was always in my game plan upon retirement because I love Arnprior. This town is the jewel of the Upper Ottawa Valley. We may not be New York or Toronto, but we do have in no particular order: good schools, lots of churches, a library, a museum (the old post office), a marina, a yacht club (there should be a restaurant there), a fish and game club, beautiful nature trails (Mcnamara trail and the Grove), Robert Simpson Park (which could really use a swimming dock or wharf like we used to have), a hospital (well-run, with excellent doctors and staff), two golf courses, good developers, lots of realtors to choose from, fast food outlets, Wes’ Chips, a variety of restaurants, competitive sports teams at all levels, recreation facilities with programs for people Photo by Sherry Haaima. of all ages, low crime and drug Arnprior is full of hidden and not so-hidden treasures, as noted by Jim Silye in his column at right. One of rates, three drug stores, and atthe most valued is Robert Simpson Park, where beach-goers, children, seniors and skateboarders mingle tractive and historic downtown business sector. and enjoy the beautiful view overlooking where two rivers meet.

OK, OK, so we could use some tennis courts, more outlet stores, maybe a Wal-Mart and/or a Farm Boy, a nightclub with live entertainment, a shoe store and more ladies wear (Victoria Secrets), just to mention a few things. Oh yeah, for a town of this size, we could do with a few less OPP, who seem to be using Arnprior as a training ground to pick on the locals with no discretion – just my opinion. Back to my main point. The two main reasons Arnprior is my preference and what makes it unique are the two beautiful rivers and the people. The Madawaska and Ottawa rivers promote not only beauty but boating (watch out for the rocks), fishing (year-round) and swimming. The people are friendly, many of them with unique personalities with the Valley accent and you’re always saying, “hello” to a lot of folks and, if you have the time, talk a bit about the latest rumour going around town. With our proximity to Ottawa and country-style living, Arnprior has super growth potential. And, as my 12-year-old son told me: “Dad, I like Arnprior because you’re only five minutes from everything.” I love Arnprior, do you? Share your views.

Rural areas’ forestry concerns ignored by governments Continued from Page 8 In Quebec, the federal and provincial governments have subsidized new forest product facilities, such as the pellet mill in Portage du Fort; without these subsidies, plants like this are not viable. We do not have similar subsidies available in Ontario. As far as electricity goes, the rate Ontario Power Authority will pay for electricity generated by woody biomass is not enough to make it pay. Under the Feed-in Tariff program (FIT) OPA will only pay a little over 13 cents per kilowatt-hour for energy produced by biomass, and the rate required by producers is in the $0.20/kwh range. This is in sharp contrast to what OPA pays for energy produced by solar farms ($0.44$0.80/kwh range) and wind ($0.26/kwh). In Europe, where wood energy is well developed, the FIT rates are set at levels between 16 and 30 cents per kwh to foster the creation of green energy from wood. Another major problem is if you do happen to produce energy, OPA can’t buy it because they don’t have grid capacity. This means the power lines have all the energy in them they can take; there isn’t room for any more. And you can’t ‘island’; that is, use whatever energy you need for yourself and sell the excess to OPA. You have to sell it all to OPA then buy it back. Interestingly, many people who have installed solar panels under the Microfit pro-

gram have discovered that Ontario Hydro won’t take the electricity they generate; they don’t have the capacity available in their lines. County staff and elected have met with the Minister of Energy on two occasions to discuss a review of the FIT rates. FIT rates are to be reviewed this fall, and to this end, the County (through Renfrew County Community Futures Development Corporation) contracted with Queen’s University’s Monieson Centre to develop realistic rates for woody biomass. Staff met with the OPA on two occasions, and will be meeting with them again to present the findings and propose a rate that will encourage the use of wood to create energy. There are a number of other challenges facing the forest industry that elected and staff has responded to over the past several years. Meetings with a series of Provincial Cabinet Ministers over the “Lightening the Footprints of Logging in Algonquin Park” proposal, the Endangered Species Act, the Proposal to Change Forest Tenure (Bill C161) and a number of other items of concern to the county’s forest industry have been ongoing, with mixed results. Now, we are facing a 36 per cent reduction in provincial forest roads funding that will impact all sectors of the industry. What is bewildering to staff and elected alike is the provincial government seems to have very little interest in anything outside the GTA. The same concerns have been expressed

throughout Northern and rural Ontario − not just Renfrew County is being ignored. This is another result of the urban/rural split that divides this province; the dominant urban voters are unconcerned with the failure of a renewable and sustainable forestry sector that until now has been second only to the auto industry in Ontario’s balance of payments. Challenges exist on the federal level as well. Renfrew County’s forest industry has expressed deep concerns regarding the apparent dumping of pine lumber into Ontario from the United States. American lumber is flooding our market at a price we can’t compete with. Elected, staff and industry personnel have taken these concerns to our federal MP, and are waiting for a response. For those of you who make your living in the forest industry, rest assured your municipal politicians are aware of the issues and are doing everything in their power to help the industry. They are every bit as frustrated as you are.

Among the Algonquin College team who played a major role in researching and designing the Prince of Wales exhibit on the Arnprior Museum’s third floor are Charlie Baril, Marina Piza, Cailee Goulden, professor Micheal Wheatley, Amy Nyentap and Caitlyn Pellerin. The heritage design students are in the college’s applied museum program.

The Arnprior and District Museum officially opened its summer season with a special talk on trains and a thank you to the many volunteers who make the exhibits, including a couple of intriguing new ones, possible. The old train flag stop and the general store that was on display at Renfrew County Expo are among the attractions in the museum this summer. There is also a Prince of Wales display on the third floor, timely what with the renewed interest in the royal family thanks to the visit of the heir to the throne and his bride to Canada this month. Several Algonquin College students, whose research played a key role in the exhibit were on hand for the opening. In bringing a welcome from the town on behalf of Mayor David Reid, who was away, Arnprior Reeve Walter Stack praised the museum’s leadership in ensuring the town’s display at County Expo 150 was much admired. The museum did a superb job, he said, adding “I can’t wait to see what you’ll be doing for our (Arnprior’s) 150th celebration (next year).” The museum has an “unbelievable team of volunteers,” he said. “You do us proud.” Museum curator Janet Carlile agreed the museum’s volunteers are a special breed. There are 500 volunteers who work behind the scenes, giving time and expertise “to make this place work,” she said. She said work on last year’s Prince and the Prior re-enactment was an example of the volunteers’ talents and organization. “It unfolded just as planned” and attracted 3,000 people to town, she noted. Carlile said the Prince of Wales

Two of the Museum’s most active volunteers, Morris Hall, left, and Brian LaBrie, at the door of the general store. exhibit has been one result, thanks in part to one of the many valuable partnerships that benefit the museum. Working with Algonquin College’s Mike Wheatley’s students is a win-win because it helps the museum with its exhibit and gives the applied museum students a safe place to practice their trade. Wheatley said the last two years spent by students at the museum have been extremely valuable as they learn a great deal with the hands-on experience. It also makes them feel good they are assisting the museum with its exhibits, he added. Carlile said community support is also a mainstay of the museum. She related the contribution of the late Ross Elliott, who donated a flag stop to the museum five years ago when interest was high in the railway because of the debate, still ongoing, of its future in the Valley. Getting the flag stop out of the weather and into the museum ensures its survival for future generations to view. Carlile credited a dedicated team of volunteers for re-creating the exhibit, noting that people such as John Unrau, John Brady, Morris Hall, Doug Collins, Tom Smith and Brian LaBrie played major roles in its rescue and renovation.

“Thank you for all your hard work,” she said. “It’s a stupendous addition to our collection.” LaBrie, Hall and Unrau also played major roles in building the general store at the Kenwood Centre for Expo and now the museum, she added. “That was also quite a feat.” At Expo, the store showed the heritage of the community and the local story-tellers on hand “made it come alive,” she said. Carlile said after such busy year, the volunteers deserve a breather. The projects for 2011-12 will be less ambitious, she suggested. However, the expanded offerings have made the museum possibly eligible for new grants, she explained. TRAIN MAN The museum opening’s guest speaker was John Weir from the Smiths Falls Railway Museum. Weir took his audience back in time, with the help of props, to the era when passenger trains passed through Arnprior. At one time, six trains stopped in town daily, he said. However, since 1990, there have been no passenger trains in the Upper Ottawa Valley. “It’s a different time,” said Carlile. “But maybe some time in the distant future, they (tracks) will be busy again.” The museum is open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday all summer. The museum has also arranged to be open year-round on Tuesdays and is open on several special occasions. The museum is also holding a summer program for children ages 6 to 12 on Wednesdays and Fridays from 1 to 3 p.m. (see Page 11). “Hopefully, they will become the heritage supporters of the future,” said Carlile.

He is an active dog who will require regular walks and activities to keep him busy. Murphy knows some basic commands but would benefit from more training. He is cratetrained and housebroken. Murphy gets along with some dogs and would be best suited in a home without cats and older children. He is very sweet and deserves to find a loving new home.

Arnprior OPP are applauding a local citizen who help apprehend a suspected impaired driver. OPP report that on June 19, officers were dispatched to the parking lot of the LCBO in Arnprior. An Arnprior resident had arrived at the liquor store when he noticed a red Dodge pickup truck pull into the parking lot and almost hit a parked car. The caller observed the driver of the truck stumble into the LCBO and purchase alcohol. The stumbling driver left the store to get back into his pickup and attempted to drive away. The good Samaritan approached the driver side of the pickup, prevented him from leaving and call 911. Arnprior officers arrived on scene and as a result, a 64-year-old Arnprior man is facing charges of impaired care and control of a motor vehicle. BARBECUE RUN OVER Arnprior OPP report that on June 24, Constable Ross Cameron investigated a complaint of mischief at an

Arnprior home. A barbecue had been intentionally run over by a vehicle and the yard torn up. A 19-year-old Arnprior man is charged with mischief to property. UTTERING THREATS

On July 3, Arnprior OPP officers investigated a complaint of persons being threatened in Arnprior. As a result of their investigation, a 22-year-old Woodlawn man has been charged with uttering threats to cause death or bodily harm and uttering threats to damage property. BAIL VIOLATIONS On June 28, Arnprior OPP Const. Ross Cameron observed a 24-year-old Arnprior man breaching conditions of his release, an undertaking that he had entered into several hours earlier the same day. He was arrested and held for a bail hearing. On June 20, Arnprior constables Paul Emon and Raul Pasta observed a young offender breaching condi-

Cellular *OPP (*677) is a service provided to wireless customers of Bell and Rogers networks. Over the past few weeks, Arnprior OPP officers have been receiving complaints of a scam in which criminals are contacting unsuspecting people and identifying themselves as a distant relative or grandchild who has been arrested for various offences, usually impaired driving, and are in dire need of cash. Before deciding whether to send money, obtain as much information as possible about the caller (phone numbers, addresses, etc.) and contact other family members to determine if the call is genuine. Contact police if you are unable to confirm the person’s identity. Police will investigate the complaint.

tions of a probation order. The youth was arrested and held for a bail hearing. DOMESTIC DISPUTES

Arnprior officers responded and investigated five domestic disputes last week. One resulted in criminal charges. On June 25, Arnprior Const. Helen Paterson investigated a domestic dispute in Arnprior. As a result of her investigation, a 40-yearold Arnprior man has been charged with assault. Arnprior OPP detachment officers attended 175 calls for service in the past two weeks. Included were 39 false alarms and 911 calls. 911 REMINDER Police stress that 911 should not be used for nonemergency type calls such as reporting a hydro outage, obtaining government information, asking for directory assistance, seeking information about school closings, or for getting directions, to name a few.

OPP target texting drivers Ask Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Commissioner Chris Lewis what causes him great concern on Ontario roads and highways these days and he will say it is the number of distracted drivers talking or texting on cell phones. This is why this week (July 11-17), the OPP is holding week #2 of its four-week Phone in One Hand, Ticket in the Other Distracted Driving Campaign to ensure those who do not comply with distracted driving legislation are dealt with to the fullest extent of the law. During Week #1 of the campaign in May, OPP officers throughout the province laid more than 1,600 Highway Traffic Act charges relating to distracted driving, with many more to come this week. “My busy job as OPP Commissioner involves that I travel our roads and highways regularly and I am astounded and dismayed at the number of drivers I see talking or texting on cell phones over the course of my travels” said Lewis.“These people have no regard for the safety of

their passengers or the people travelling around them whose lives they can end in a split second.” During the campaign, the OPP is ramping up enforcement efforts, stopping any drivers caught using a hand-held communications or other entertainment device. They will also be watching for and stopping motorists who exhibit careless driving due to distractions such as adjusting the radio, eating while driving or searching for something in their vehicle. Using a cell phone or device capable of texting while driving can result in a fine of $155. Watching an entertainment device can result in a fine of $110. Other forms of distracted driving can result in a charge of Careless Driving with fines ranging from $400 to $2,000, a possible licence suspension of up to two years and/or a jail term of not more than six months. The Canadian Automobile Association (CAA) ranked the distracted driver as its number one concern on the roads in 2010.

OPP worried as ATV deaths mount STAFF Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) are warning allterrain vehicle (ATV) drivers to be more careful after a series of recent deaths. Renfrew OPP are investigating the death of an ATV driver July 2 near Calabogie. At about 2 p.m. an 83-

year-old man was driving his ATV down a steep hill on a trail off Green Lake Road when a protruding log caused him to lose control. The ATV rolled several times and landed on top of the victim, who was not wearing a helmet. He was discovered about 10 minutes later by his son.

Paramedics attended and took the man to Calabogie, where he was airlifted by Ornge air ambulance to the Ottawa Hospital. He succumbed to his injuries in hospital that night. Provincial Constable Adam Nitschmann investigated the incident. There have also been three other recent ATV fatalities in the area.

Lake Fen, a floating world of sedge and moss that supports an amazing selection of orchids and other rare plants and animals. Here we were treated Michael Runtz to hundreds, Nature’s Way possibly thousands of pink orchids covering the floating peatland. The beautiful Rose Pogonia, whose lower lip (an enlarged petal that serves as a landing platform for insects) is adorned with a fake pollen masses that trick bees into visiting them, was the most common. There were also many Grass Pinks, the only orchid with its lower petal twisted around to sit on top of the flower! This stunning flower has a hinged upper petal that, once a bee lands on its fake pollen lure, collapses, pinning the bee in a winged coffin. Here any pollen it is carrying is removed and new pollen glued to it. The other dominant orchid in the

fen was the White Bog Orchid, which smells like cloves. In addition to the orchids, we encountered a couple of Elfin Skimmers, the second smallest dragonfly in the world with a wingspan no greater than the width of your thumb! We also saw hundreds of Buck Moth caterpillars, black and orange caterpillars armed with poison spines. White Lake Fen is one of the two Canadian locations for these rare creatures. Stewartville Swamp houses fewer orchids than it used to because of the historic ice storm and more recent blowdowns. Still, pockets of the original forest remain and nearly two dozen Round-leaved Orchids with towering spikes of ghostly blooms and saucer-sized leaves for catching light were found. The other highlight was the unopened flower spikes of Dwarf Rattlesnake-Plantain, whose checkered leaves are as even prettier than their blooms. We are fortunate that so many orchids abound in our region. In fact, you may well have some growing in your backyard. If you do, just don’t let any pirates know!

Wild orchids abound locally Few groups of plants have intrigued us more than orchids. In earlier times they were prized possessions of royalty, and expeditions were mounted around the world to collect new species to be displayed in palaces as resplendent as the floral blooms themselves. Ships were plundered and lives lost when pirates became aware that the exotic flowers were as precious a cargo as gold and sparkling jewels. Orchids’ unusual ways of reproduction caught the attention of Charles Darwin who devoted an entire book to their remarkable pollination mechanisms. Today orchids remain symbols of beauty and intrigue. Yet, many people think one must travel either to floral shops or tropical jungles to see these beauties. While that might be true for the majority of 20,000 species known today, local habitats are home to nearly 40 species of wild orchids. The impressive diversity is due largely to the rich variety of habitats and soil types in our region. Many species are blooming right now, so that is why orchids were the subjects of a recent outing I led for the Macnamara Field Naturalists’ Club. The group first visited the White

Discovering the Ottawa JOHN CARTER john.carter@metroland.com

The Riverkeeper is coming. A group led by Ottawa Riverkeeper Meredith Brown began an ambitious and interactive journey of discovery July 4. The team, which is expected to reach the McNab-Braeside-Arnprior stretch of the river about mid-August, is documenting the state of the Ottawa River. The goal of the Great River Project is to share the ecology and rich cultural heritage of the Kichi sipi (Great River) with a wide audience. Brown is being accompanied by an expert team of photographers, naturalists, historians, scientists and a motivated group of students. Along the way we will monitor water quality, and meet with a diverse group of people and leaders who depend on the Ottawa River for different reasons. They will interview scientists, dam operators, First Nation chiefs, river guides, fishermen, farmers and river enthusiasts to find out why the river is worth knowing and protecting. “Experiencing the river through stories, photographs, videos and interviews will help thousands of people, including decision-makers, become more knowledgeable about the state of the Ottawa River and the importance it plays in our everyday lives, our culture, our heritage, our health and our economy,” says Brown. Those interested can follow the adventures of the team on the expedition blog on the website http://grp.ottawariverkeeper.ca/. The adventure includes an opportunity for youth in the watershed to participate in a free trip down the river when the tour hits Renfrew County. More information is available on the website.

AJ Charbonneau student

On June 16, AJ Charbonneau’s Grade 3s traveled by bus to the Admaston school house because they wanted to have fun, to see how pioneer children learned, and to see what a pioneer school house looked like. As soon as the children got off the bus, the teacher, Miss Enright, was ringing an old-fashioned school bell. As soon as the children found their seats, Miss Enright told them that they were pretending to be in school on June 16, 1900. Miss Enright then stated: “Okay everyone, we are now going to do mental arithmetic.” The children did 10 questions, and they wrote only the answers on their slates. After all the students were done, the students then checked their work with an old-fashioned calculator called an abacus. When all the students checked their work, it was recess. During recess, the children ate their lunch, found a strawberry patch, climbed trees and even found a bird’s nest! Miss Enright then rang the school bell, which meant they had to line up in a girl’s line and boy’s line, and had to distance themselves before going in. When they found their seats, they practiced their spelling words on a slate because later that day, they would have a spelling bee. Next came writing with a stick pen and ink. Instead of practicing printing, they practiced handwriting. It was very different for the left-handed students because if they dragged their hand across the page it would smudge. Next came the spelling bee. When the children did the spelling bee, everyone got stuck on the word arithmetic, except for Thomas Cherney. He was the spelling champion. The bus picked the children up and they headed back to the present. I think the students really enjoyed their trip!

PERFORMERS IN THE PARK Last Sunday’s concert in Robert Simpson Park saw some 250 people come out with their lawnchairs to enjoy Ball and Chain and the Wreckers, a much lauded Ottawa rock-a-billy band. Fronted by Mike and Jody Ball, the couple welcomed local talent Jeanika Benoit to perform a stirring version of Crystal Shawanda’s You can let go. Parks and Recreation director Glenn Arthur said the Concerts in the Park series is gettting better every week. “Where can you go nearby on a Sunday afternoon and hear great music for free?” he said. This Sunday it’s Tom Loeschnik performing from 2 to 4 p.m. Photos by DerekDunn

NOTICE TOWN OF ARNPRIOR In the matter of Sections 34(12) of the Planning Act, the Town of Arnprior hereby gives NOTICE OF THE FOLLOWING: A public meeting regarding Zoning By-law amendment lands municipally known as 229 Elgin Street from Residential One (R1) to Residential Two (R2) Zone. Subject Lands

Moran siblings Luke, Zachery and Rebecka secure a spot in front of Barnett Cottage on Calabogie Lake for the annual fishing derby. Turns out it was the right spot, Zach hauled up a bass that won him the $100 first prize.

Calabogie fish derby winners earn cash, tackle DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@metroland.com

There wasn’t much difference in size between the junior and adult winners of the Calabogie Fish and Game Club’s annual fishing derby. Fish size, that is. The junior winner’s catch was a 2.8pound largemouth bass. The adult winner pulled in a 3.6-pound largemouth. Organizer Brian Moran, who owns Moran’s Cabins not far from the derby site of Calabogie Lake, said the turnout was about the same as last year, maybe a few less. There was no blaming the weather, he admitted. “It was a great day,” Moran said.

“There’s good bass fishing here.” Hometown favourite young Zach Moran won $100 for his fish. He promised to take the whole family out to dinner that night. “That’ll pretty near take all his money,” Moran said, chuckling. Jake Powell came in second place, earning him a fishing rod. RENFREW WINNER The winner of the adult division, Pete Robb, took home $200. No word on whether he was treating the family. Second place went to Renfrew’s Kevin Coulas, who earned a soft tackle box.

Mario would like to be part of your family.

The Town of Arnprior has received application ZBLA-3/11 for an amendment to Zoning By-law 4990-01, as amended, for the lands described as East Part Lot 3, Plan 49, municipally known a 299 Elgin Street, as shown on the attached Key Map. Public Meeting A public meeting giving the public an opportunity to make representations in respect of the zoning amendment will be held on Monday, August 8th, 2011 at 6:30p.m. in Council Chambers at the Town Hall, 105 Elgin Street West, Arnprior. Description of Application The proposed zoning amendment would rezone the lands from the Residential One (R1) Zone to the Residential Two (R2) Zone to permit single detached, semidetached or duplex dwelling units. The current zoning restricts the use of the property to single detached dwelling only. Further Information To view any information or materials related to the proposal, please contact the Planning Office, Town Hall, 105 Elgin Street West, Arnprior, or on the Town’s web site at www.arnprior.ca. Notification and Submission Requirements If you wish to be notified of the adoption of the proposed zoning by-law amendment, or a refusal of a request to amend the Zoning By-law, you must make a written request to: Clerk, Town of Arnprior, 105 Elgin Street West, Arnprior, Ontario, K7S 0A8. If a person or public body does not make oral submissions at a public meeting or make written submissions to the Town of Arnprior before the proposed Zoning By-law amendment is adopted, the person or public body is not entitled to appeal the decision of the Town of Arnprior to the Ontario Municipal Board. If a person or public body does not make oral submissions at a public meeting or make written submissions to the Town of Arnprior before the proposed Zoning By-law amendment is adopted, the person or public body may not be added as a party to the hearing of an appeal before the Ontario Municipal Board unless, in the opinion of the Board, there are reasonable grounds to add the person or public body as a party. Note: One of the purposes of the Planning Act is to provide for planning processes that are open, accessible, timely and efficient. Accordingly, all written submissions, documents, correspondence, e-mails or other communications (including your name and address) form part of the public record and will be disclosed/made available by the Town to such persons as the Town sees fit, including anyone requesting such information. Accordingly, in providing any such information, you shall be deemed to have consented to its use and disclosure as part of the planning process.

Below, Aaron Wainwright winds up on the first hole. There were 126 golfers on the course and 145 dinner guests. The final tally is not in on funds raised because some bills still need to be paid, but organizer Tracey Reid reports that the event appears to have been quite successful, grossing close to $27,000.

A golf tourney to remember FARMWIFE, from 43 Harry Pratt spoke about the men who first banded together to raise money to build Kemptville District Hospital, in the late 1950s. Norm Goldberg (father of Bob Perry) worked alongside Jackson Flay to raise a quarter million dollars in 10 days! The grandchildren of these hospital’s founders, Jim Perry and Jackie (Flay) Dillabaugh, were on hand to celebrate Carol Durie’s memory and to raise money for a worthy cause on Friday.

The event was titled The 1st Annual Carol Durie Memorial Golf Tournament, but organizers have not yet decided whether they will hold the event next year. It’s kind of like having a baby. You put so much work into it; people shouldn’t ask you about the next one for at least six months. In any case, the day is one that will be remembered by all in attendance for quite some time. Here’s to you, Carol. Your memory lives on in the hearts and minds of your students, family and friends.

SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE The lights are out, the stage is dark, and the audience has departed. The Ron Maslin Playhouse is left with the Ghosts of Playlists Past. But wait! There are Kanata Theatre members working away at putting the playhouse in order and getting things ready for our 2011-2012 season of plays. There will be something for everyone in our 43rd Season.

DANIEL NUGENT-BOWMAN daniel.bowman@metroland.com

The Kanata Stallions will have their own version of Don Cherry behind the bench for next season – minus the colourful suits. The Central Canada Hockey League (CCHL) team announced on July 7 that it has hired as coach Pakenham resident and former NHL right-winger Randy Pierce, who broke into the league with the Colorado Rockies in the 197778 season under the now-famous broadcaster. Pierce has deep roots in this area and coached the Arnprior Packers to two Valley titles in the late 1990s. The Stallions, the Fred Page Cup hosts, have been without a bench boss since last season’s coach of the year Adam Dewan resigned shortly after the team’s opening-round playoff exit to the Cornwall Colts because he wanted to spend more time with his newborn daughter. “I’m not babysitting. You’ve got to play my game,” Pierce said. “I was coached by Don Cherry and my theory and his theory are pretty much the same. Respect your coaches and everything they want you to do and give 110 per cent every time you step on the ice.” Pierce, a Pakenham native who played for the Smiths Falls Bears in 1974-75, finished his professional career in 1986 after stints with Colorado, New Jersey and Hartford, and turned to coaching. After stops in the American

college ranks and the International Hockey League, Pierce guided the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League’s Arnprior Packers to two Valley division titles from 1995 to 1999. Although Pierce has spent most of his time scouting since his son, Matt, graduated from the Stallions seven years ago to attend and play hockey at Mercyhurst College in Pennsylvania, he has applied for several vacant CCHL coaching jobs in the last couple years. This familiarity with the community and owner John Russo from his role on the coaching staff when Matt was a Stallion were contributing factors in the hire. But Pierce cited his ability to develop future NHLers like current Minnesota Wild winger Darroll Powe – who played with his son – as one of his biggest strengths. “I haven’t been coaching for a while, but that means nothing,” he said. “I played the game long enough and watched it long enough. I’m here strictly for teaching these kids how to play the game. “I’m a player’s coach. For all the players on and off the ice, no matter what the issue is, let’s resolve it. We’re out here to play hockey and make you the best hockey player we can.” For the Stallions to return to glory, Pierce said the team must play as a five-man unit, with emphasis on aggressive, positional play. “We’re out to win and we’re

out to improve guys,” he said. “If these guys want to buy into my plan and do what I expect them to do, then our team will improve by the end of the year.”

Pierce lives in Pakenham with his wife Danielle. They have three children, sons Matt and Brett and daughter Bridgette, Matt, an Arnprior District High

The Almonte Tennis Club has just purchased a new ball machine this summer, and some of its club members have already been enjoying the opportunity of familiarizing themselves with this effective, new tennis tool. Board members of the Almonte club are aware that currently there is no organized tennis club in Arnprior, and so they are inviting all tennis enthusiasts in the Arnprior area to make the 20-minute trip to visit the Almonte courts (in Gemmill Park), and participate in a series of free sessions to try out the ball machine. This opportunity can be arranged through Almonte club pro Hyacinth Chatterton, an Arnprior resident, who is donating her time to organize group sessions with the machine for anyone interested in working on specific skills. Chatterton has chosen 46 of the best-known international ball machine drills and grouped them into eight series, which she will present on the Almonte

Bluegrass & grassroots Volunteers, business donations help festival contribution tens of thousands of dollars to hospital DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@metroland.com

When I slowed on Castleford Road and turned toward the farm, the first thing I heard was the music. Sounds trickling to the grass parking lot, then luring me in. A lonesome standing bass, a perky banjo, along with other instruments dancing behind lyrics about “treatin’ a lady right” and seeking salvation. Topics familiar to rural folk. A huge cedar barn blocks much of Bob Johnston’s farm. But it was easy to figure out I was at the right place. Blazoned across all three storeys was the inscription: Valley Bluegrass Festival July 9-11. It didn’t take all my investigative-reporter skills to figure that one out. “It’s on a farm because that’s where a bluegrass festival should be,” Mike O’Reilly later declared backstage. Some 50 to 60 cheerful volunteers bustled about, ready to point people in the right direction. Down the small gulley, over the pond where a momma duck warned me to keep to the lane, I climbed up a hill to the concert area. It was at the centre of a wall of white campers. Smoke and the smell of hamburgers frying; open-walled tents inviting retreat from the oppressive sun; booths selling everything from CDs to western apparel; people of all ages mingling about and backslapping old friends or in folding chairs clapping along to performers on the wooden stage: a bluegrass fan’s Mecca. Not that I am one. Bluegrass is a genre I’ve pretty much managed to avoid. I suppose I didn’t give it much of a chance, along classical, opera and others. I wasn’t raised on it, so instead have stuck to folk music and others. My knowledge of bluegrass didn’t extend beyond the 2000 blockbuster O Brother, Where Art Thou, a film bluegrass fans say went a long way to shedding a positive light on their music (and movie critics say on George Clooney’s image as more than just another pretty face in Hollywood.) I’ve been to my share of outdoor music festivals. (Bluesfest comes to mind, though how they can debate lawn chairs versus no lawn chairs year in and year out is beyond me. I can’t imagine it happening here even once.) Still, none compared to the warmth and genuine affection circling the concert area last Saturday in Horton.

Children dancing, grandparents catching up with old friends. More musicians backstage, on stage and in the crowd then I’ve noticed at other concerts. “That’s the difference,” O’Reilly said, after playing a set in the house band The Dick Smith/Mike O’Reilly Band. “They come for the music. Not the rowdy stuff.” Organizer Bob Johnston agreed, saying many in the crowd play bluegrass and came early for the jam sessions. “They come to hear good music,” Johnston said. “Three or four generations will reunite here every year for the festival.” Jacob Topping is a prime example. He played Mountain Dew on a mandolin made by his grandfather two nights before. Johnston tells the story of how it all began some 16 years ago. After attending yet another country music festival in the early 1990s that digressed into fist-fighting among drunken 20-somethings, Johnston was frustrated. Desperate, he agreed to meet with a stranger named O’Reilly, along with three others in a motor home. The Valley Bluegrass Festival was created. It was held on the Renfrew Fairgrounds the first two years. But then it got bumped inadvertently by an Orangemen event, leaving organizers to scramble for a new location. “That’s when we moved it here,” Johnston said, smiling broadly. “When Mike got here he said ‘It’s 500 per cent better and we haven’t started yet.’” It would seem a generous act, turning over a farm to musicians and their fans for a weekend. But Johnston maintains it has been a community effort, with businesses giving generously. He cites Marshall’s owner Dave Bennett as one of many who give without asking for anything in return. Hydro workers donating their talents after hours are another. “We got people in this community that just donate, donate, donate,” Johnston said. “Some of them don’t even like bluegrass.” From a motor home to the 17th annual show, welcoming some 2,500 fans to the Johnston Farm – adding more to the $65,000 already donated to Renfrew’s hospital, and $8,000 to the hospice – the Valley Bluegrass Festival is in full swing. Let’s hope the music goes on for many more years to come.

Five couples have managed to keep the Valley Bluegrass Festival growing to the point of it welcoming some 2,500 fans every year. Some of those organizers include Shelley White, left, Arnold Dickson, Mike O’Reilly, Bob Johnston, and Barb Dickson. At right, The Spinney Brothers of Nova Scotia didn’t disappoint at this year’s festival. They wowed the crowd.

Businessman, family man, hockey fan Art Byrne mourned brier.dodge@metroland.com

Family and friends in the Almonte-Pakenham area are remembering Arthur Joseph ‘Art’ Byrne, who passed away in his sleep on Canada Day. Byrne lived in Mississippi Mills all of his life, growing up and raising his family in Almonte before moving to Pakenham after he opened the Home Hardware in 1978. His daughter, Cathy Giles, remembers him as kind and caring gentleman. “Everything he did, it was usually for somebody else,” she said. Giles said family was everything to Byrne, the youngest of seven children. Married to Jean Coe, he and his wife had four children, Giles, Tim Byrne and Christine Pierce, as well as a son Terry, who predeceased his father. His seven grandchildren, “each of them special,” said Byrne, and two great-granddaughters, lit up his life. “His great granddaughters were his shining stars,” she said. “They brought him to life, even in his sickness.” Part of his reasoning

ART BYRNE behind opening A.J. Byrne and Sons Hardware was to include his sons, who both worked at the store. Byrne and Coe opened the hardware store after he took early retirement from Stats Canada at 55, and Coe left her job at Lee Pro Hardware in Almonte. “He was really the books guy,” Giles said, but noted “he loved talking to people” who came in the store. Besides his family, Byrne had two strong passions: hockey and his church. “Detroit Red Wings have been his team since he was a little boy,” Giles said. A fan of the Red Wings and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, he had gone on road trips to see both of his favourite teams in person. He followed local junior A hockey and travelled over all over the valley, Giles recalled.

While he was a great hockey fan, he devoted much of his time to the church and helped found the local Catholic School Board. Giles said once funding was available for separate schools, he wanted to make sure that his own area could get the funding. The only problem was there wasn’t a second school board. He, along with several others, started the Lanark, Leeds and Grenville County Roman Catholic Separate School Board. In 1998, the board amalgamated with Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry board and the PrescottRussell English board to become the present day Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario. He spent many evenings and weekends working as a board trustee, Giles said. He remained dedicated to his faith, from his early days at St. Mary’s Church as an alter boy, to his older days when he continued to drive to Almonte from Pakenham to continue to attend the church, and volunteer as an usher. “Everything he did, it was usually for somebody else,” said Giles.

Spaniel wins first Kearney trophy The annual Arnprior Canine Association All Breed Championship Dog Show attracted a large crowd of dogs, owners and interested viewers to the Nick Smith Centre. Show chairwoman again for the popular three-day show in May was Thora Brown of the Almonte area. A variety of dogs were named Best in Show during the event. On Friday, the first show winner was a Pointer, Brackenmoor the Duchess, owned by Julie Pullan of Sarnia. A Siberian Husky, Trishamar’s What a Star Aurora, owned by Barb and Chris Tauvette of Sault Ste Marie, was tops in Friday’s second show. Saturday’s big winner was a Brittany Spaniel, Ataboy’s Dazzle Me Daphne, owned by Allyson Godfroid of Paris, Ontario. Best in Show Sunday was an Afghan Hound, Mijkelh Sikanni of Procyon, owned by Sherril Wallack of Rockcliffe Park. The Best in Puppy Sweepstakes winner was a Border terrier, Baytree Aero Bubbles, owned by Jane Cairns of Ashton. She received the Mell Schlievert Memorial Trophy.

As Best in Show Saturday, Godfroid’s spaniel received the first Pat Kearney Perpetual Trophy. Kearney, who had last year’s show dedicated to her after her death in 2009, was a founding member of the Arnprior Canine Association and a long-time show chairwoman. Her family owned Drisheen Dachshunds of Pakenham. This year’s featured breed was the terrier. The Rideau Terrier Club led by Doreen Linkletter held a competition Saturday with Shari Robinson of Osgoode the judge. Another Saturday event was a town hall meeting hosted by the Canadian Kennel Club. Sunday activities included junior handling clinic and competition. Four of the show’s seven judges were from Ontario with one each from British Columbia, Alberta and Australia. The executive of the Arnprior Canine Association includes president Kathy Kennedy, vice-president Chris Cole, secretary Margaret Pratt and treasurer Allan Brown, who also acted as the weekend show’s superintendent.

The Ontario’s Highlands Tourism Organization (OHTO) has announced the winner of the iPad 2 in their Tourism Starts with You contest, part of its grassroots effort to increase tourism to the region. Recognizing that most people who live in the area may not consider it as a tourist destination, the OHTO set out to

dom from over 570 submissions received throughout the contest period, which ran from the end of March to June. Lynda Larsen-Baldry from Kanata won the contest by submitting one of her favourite experiences: whitewater rafting on the Ottawa River. The contest for the iPad 2 may be over, but submissions of favourite experiences and attractions are

still encouraged at the Tourism Starts with You website. Past entries can also be viewed, which include everything from Movies Under the Stars in Smiths Falls to the Marmora Mine. Submissions will be featured on the Ontario’s Highlands Facebook page and at the upcoming Ontario’s Highlands visitor information website at www.ontariohighlands.ca.

It doesn’t make sense: MPP “Every kid who runs a lemonade stand knows you can’t buy lemons for 80 cents and sell the lemonade for five cents. But it’s a simple point that’s lost on this outof-touch premier,” said Yakabuski. He charged that under the Liberal government hydro rates have skyrocketed 150 per cent for families with smart meters (84 per cent for those without) and noted the HST has been added to home hydro bills, a move the Conservatives say they will eliminate.

GIS increased for some seniors In her July column, Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant says seniors and young entrepreneurs are among those benefiting from Conservatives’ election promises. As promised, Canada’s most vulnerable seniors can count on a top-up to their Guaranteed Income Supplement effective July 1. The measure will provide additional benefits, worth up to $600 per year for single seniors and $840 per year for couples, to more than 680,000 seniors across Canada who may be at risk of experiencing financial difficulties, she wrote. Other measures passed in the new Parliament include support for young entrepreneurs through a $20 million grant to the Canadian Youth Business Foundation

and a reduction of the in-study interest rate to zero for part-time students (bringing them in line with full time students), she added. Other budget-related legislation provides GST/HST relief for Legion purchases of Remembrance Day poppies and wreaths and improves disability programs. Gallant also writes that “while Canadians welcome the end to our combat role in Afghanistan, let us not forget those soldiers who will remain overseas in a training or advisory capacity, in Afghanistan and elsewhere. Wearing red on Friday is never out of fashion!” For the full column, see the website www.yourottawaregion.com.

Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MPP John Yakabuski unveiled Dalton’s Lemonade Stand last Friday at Queen’s Park to illustrate “how Dalton McGuinty’s outof-touch energy policies defy economic sense.” While Dalton McGuinty believes providing subsidies of up to 80 cents for fivecent power is a good deal, Yakabuski, the PC Energy Critic, said Ontario families, and even kids, can see the fault in his logic.

Survivor Camp runs next week KAYLA REINERT AND DON GOUGEON Youth Corner

The great summer weather continues and so do our camps. Our final camp, the Survivor Camp, runs from July 18 – 22 for youth ages 8-14. Can you handle the intensity of Arnprior’s outback at the Nick Smith Centre? This camp teaches you problem solving, teamwork, endurance and so much more. The best thing about this camp is that no one gets voted off ! They vote for you! The person getting the most votes can opt out of one of the challenges on the next day. Survivor Camp runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. with free early drop-off at 8 a.m., and free late pick up until 5 p.m. We still have a few spots left, but they’re going quickly, so register soon to avoid disappointment. The cost is $199 and lunch is included. On Wednesday, July 20, as part of the Survivor camp, we are going to Chutes Coulonge for zip lining. This site offers challenges for thrill seekers of all ages. Older youth can zip line over the canyon. And there is a children’s course available for younger youth. The bus leaves the Nick Smith Centre at 8:30 a.m. sharp and returns at 5 p.m. You can sign up just for the Chutes Coulonge trip, if you like. The cost is $15 for youth under 4 ft. 10 in. and $35 for those over 4 ft. 10 in.

A reminder that our Community Access Pass program continues until the end of August, so for those of you with Grade 5 and Grade 9 passes, swimming, skating and shinny is still free at the Nick Smith Centre. Our fall programs are being organized as you read this article. Stay tuned for more information on our full slate of youth programs for the upcoming fall and winter season. For more information or to contact Kayla or Don at the Nick Smith Centre, call 613-623-7301 or e-mail Kayla at kreintert@arnprior.ca. Keep in mind that all registrations for programs must be done in person at the Nick Smith Centre.

McGregor’s Hospice Renfrew support continues SHERRY HAAIMA sherry.haaima@metroland.com

McGregor’s Produce served more than 200 shortcakes and raised $1,500 for Hospice Renfrew at a July 1 strawberry social at the family farm in Lochwinnoch. McGregor’s also presented its last Hospice Renfrew pledge payment of $ 2,000. The event was a huge success and Hospice is grateful for the support, says Helen

McGregor, the agency’s administrative assistant. EXCELLENT CROP There’s lots of action at McGregor’s of late. “We have an excellent crop of strawberries this year,” said Jim McGregor. Things in the fields had been running very smoothly up until the Friday before Canada Day when a huge downpour caused some

damage. “But we’ve still got lots of berries,” he said. The day neutral variety is being grown on raised beds, a relatively new process at the farm. A pipe runs through the beds, using drip irrigation to keep the plants watered. McGregor’s is also growing tomatoes using raised beds. About 90 acres of produce is grown at McGregor’s.

EDMUND OSBORNE It is with great remorse that we announce the passing of Edmund Osborne, consumate gentleman at age 93. Life began in Arnprior, Ontario, where Ed graduated high school and started his banking career. This was interrupted by World War II, in which he served with distinction as a squadron leader in the RCAF. After the war, Ed resumed his career with the Bank of Nova Scotia. He loved the art of business, his stocks and the business section of the Globe and Mail. But he loved his wife more, and proved to be the best husband there could be. Later in life, at 85 he lost his sight and this is where he showed his greatest bravery; never a complaint, always trying to adjust to the new world. Shortly after this, it became apparent that he was suffering from Alzheimers. And again he would discuss this development without complaint but rather apologies to his loved ones. Two years ago when his needs became too difficult to manage, he entered the Veterans Wing of Sunnybrook. After 68 years of marriage, Ed has left his wife Dorothy Gray, his beloved daughter Debbie Trevelyan, her husband Lake, Ed’s best friend, and 4 treasured grandchildren, Chris and wonderful wife Kirsten Vincze, Kelly, Lindsay and Jenny (and soon to be husband David Banwell). He also leaves his son Ed and granddaughter Courtney. He was predeceased by his father, Harry Osborne, mother, Edith (Williams) and sister, Ann Decker. He will be sorely missed. The family received friends at the HUMPHREY FUNERAL HOME – A.W. MILES CHAPEL, Toronto, 1-800-616-3311 on Sunday, July 10. If desired, donations may be sent to the C.N.I.B. 1929 Bayview Avenue, Toronto M4G 3E8. Condolences and memories may be forwarded through www.humphreymiles.com

News

Stay clear, stay safe: OPG

Ontario Power Generation (OPG) and the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) have a simple water safety message. Stay Clear, Stay Safe. “The waters near hydroelectric stations and dams can be dangerous as flows and levels change in response to demand for electricity,” said OPG executive vice-president John

Murphy. “Fencing, booms, buoys, and signs all warn people of areas to stay clear of. Our message is simple: stay clear, stay safe.” Murphy noted that there had already been drownings on Ontario waterways this summer. “Our message applies to our facilities, but the safety principle needs to be applied any-

time you go near water,” he added. OPG lands are private property and people can face charges if they trespass. Last week OPP officers were called to one OPG location because a boat of fishermen were putting themselves at risk and interfering with the operation of the facility.
