Town garbage contract award raises eyebrows

On the Edge Edge and Avalon Ranch dog school and grooming owner Mary Spurrell work hard in the trenches as Edge shows off his agility during the Arnprior Humane Society’s A Walk in the Park fundraiser held Sunday, June 22 in Robert Simpson Park. The event raised $7,200 for the cause.

By PETER DeWOLF Arnprior Weekender For the next three to five years, the trash in Arnprior will be picked up by Valley Wide Pumping. Arnprior council awarded the contract worth $788,505.99 to Lloyd Cameron’s company, which also picks up the garbage in McNab-Braeside Township. The contract is for three years, with a two-year option. However, reeve Walter Stack was concerned that the Valley Wide bid might not be the lowest one. Topps Waste Management submitted a bid for a five-year deal worth $688,355.92, but included a fuel rider in their proposal. According to chief administrative officer Larry Donaldson, the tender documents precluded any such riders and the Topps bid did not include a price without the rider. He determined the Topps bid should be disqualified on that basis. That explanation did not sit well with Stack. “$100,000 over five years is a lot of money,” Stack pointed out to Monday night’s meeting. Donaldson said it wasn’t the price as much as the process that concerned him. “The Topps bid was not compliant with the tender process,” Donaldson said. He also pointed out that in speaking with other nearby townships, they strongly recommended not accepting bids with fuel riders attached because they are difficult to monitor, verify and administer. Chief financial officer Dave Pollard confirmed that fuel riders were difficult to verify. Donaldson said he was told by others; “Don’t go there.”

Council gets a peek at new GACC website Arnprior council was given a tour of the Greater Arnprior Chamber of Commerce website Monday night as creator Doug Smith made a presentation to the town elders. According to Smith, the site is the first of its kind in Canada, bringing together not only chamber members but the entire community. “Many (chamber websites) focus just on chamber members,” Smith explained. He is hoping to see the provincial and federal chambers of commerce feature the Arnprior effort. The new presence on the web features GACC members, Business Improvement Association members, the town and township, service clubs, and other public groups. Smith pointed out there is no charge to users and anyone can visit without registering. Registering allows users, even nonGACC members, to post ads and other information. An internal mail system allows users to target certain groups of users for group mailings. “This website is very

capable of directing messages to selected groups of people,” he told council. Already the site has 48 registered users and has received about 2,000 hits. Smith hopes groups like service clubs and churches will use the site for announcing their activities and the internal mail and secure, restricted access forums to stay in touch with members and the public. “This is a big plus for clubs and churches,” Smith said. He is in the process of listing all 30 restaurants and putting together full profiles of businesses and major attractions in the area, as well as motels and bed and breakfasts. This portion of the site will be aimed directly at visitors in Arnprior or those looking to visit the area. Schools, hospital and other public institutions will be added as well. Smith would also like to run a contest on the site, asking for and rewarding the best video that promotes Arnprior and McNab-Braeside. DOWNTOWN CORE Despite efforts, Smith said it was impossible for downtown store owners to standardize their hours. “It is just not do-able,” he told council.

Suffering Multiple Sclerosis?

To help offset that problem, the hours of operation for most businesses are listed on the website, along with an updated Adobe PDF version of the downtown core map. “We had a huge success with our first downtown map,” he pointed out, but also stressed that as soon as it is printed and distributed, there are changes. A regularly updated version will be on the new site. He is also putting together a tourist map of Arnprior and plans to have it posted around town as well as available in printed and electronic form. As reported in an earlier story, a recent invoice presented to the town for $2,900 for a portion of the cost of such a map met with council confusion, as no formal agreements had been made. Future requests for financial support from

council will be presented and vetted through the chamber first, and be accompanied with a business plan. As for the website, Smith pointed out most of his work on it is unpaid and he only receives a small stipend of about $40 to $60 a month from the GACC to monitor the site’s activity. According to Smith, the biggest challenge facing the business community right now is communication. That includes communicating between themselves, the town, the various business development groups, clubs and event organizers. He is hoping the website will provide another avenue for everyone to stay in touch and know what is going on between the different organizations. The website can be found at

Local media interview Dana Shaw of the Shaw Lumber Company after he and several other crew members and guests paddled a 30,000-kilogram timber crib replica down the Ottawa River to Red Pine Bay in McNabBraeside on Monday, June 23.


Timber crib on the Ottawa


It was donated to Les Chutes Coulonge Foundation at Fort Coulonge. Now 100 years after the last squared timber raft that came down the Ottawa by J. R. Booth in 1908, the scene was re-enacted. The crib was put in the Ottawa River at the mouth of the Bonnechere River Monday morning, then towed by two tug boats down river to Braeside. The crib was disassembled at Braeside and hauled by truck to Quyon for reassemble on Tuesday, June 24 to remain on display until June 25, at which time it was to be tugged downstream to Constance Bay and arrive June 27 at the Nepean Yacht Club. The end destination of the journey is the Museum of Civilization where the timber crib will be on display for Canada Day.



Specifications for both tenders are available for pickup at the Board Office, or by calling 613-735-0151, or by emailing All inquiries during the tender period should be directed by fax to James Brose, Plant Manager, at (613) 735-6315. NO PHONE CALLS PLEASE.

An authentic replica timber crib made its way down the Ottawa River Monday, with a stop at McNab-Braeside Township’s Red Pine Bay. The project was started in Pembroke where a number of enthusiasts, with the support of Shaw Lumber Company, built a 7.3-by-9.8-metre (24x32-foot squared) timber crib. The craft contains 28 white pine timbers and weighs about 30,000 kilograms (almost 30 tons). It is a copy of the timber crib that was built in 1984 when the Ottawa Valley was designated Forest Capital of Canada by the Canadian Forestry Association. That crib was invited to sail in Québec City with the Tall Ships and after being on display in the Vieux Port, it returned (by truck) to the Ottawa Valley.

Stack votes against contract Continued from front He added that the Town of Perth was having ongoing problems with verification. Still, Stack thought that $100,000 was too much of a difference to ignore and suggested it left a lot of fuel surcharges room at $20,000 a year. In a recorded vote, the council awarded the contract to Valley Wide Pumping to begin July 31, 2008. Only Stack voted against the contract. The new garbage contract will also call for pickup to be every other week during the winter months, beginning in November, and allow three bags to be picked up free of charge. During the summer

months, pickup will take place every week, but only two bags will be permitted free. Additional bag tags can be purchased for $2.50. ANOTHER RECORDED VOTE The approval by the Committee of the Whole last week that gave the go-ahead to the Campbellbrook Village subdivision’s Phase II was challenged by Coun. Eric Burton. He wanted to see the storm sewer study done before Phase II was allowed to proceed. However, the committee had already decided it really was not required until a later phase of the project was ready to go.


In a recorded vote, the council passed the approval to proceed with Phase II with only Burton voting to deny the application. TASTE OF THE VALLEY Council was told the Taste of the Valley event held at the Arnprior Agricultural Society fairgrounds last weekend was a big success. More than 1,500 visitors attended and many vendors sold most or all of their produce. There is talk of making the event an annual festival in Arnprior. The next Taste of the Valley is scheduled for October in the Village of Cobden.

Arnprior Chronicle-Guide The importance of a summer job SERVING ARNPRIOR, WEST C ARLETON, PAKENHAM AND MCNAB-BRAESIDE SINCE 1879

Just in case you missed it... Just in case you missed Tuesday’s copy of the Arnprior Chronicle-Guide, here are briefs of some of the stories we are following: * Canada’s 141st birthday is just around the corner. Our Tuesday, June 24 front page story listed the events going on in and around Arnprior and McNabBraeside to celebrate the national holiday. * The Catholic Women’s League provincial convention will be held in Arnprior for the first time ever. More than 300 participants are expected to visit during the July 5 to 9 event. We had a run-down in Tuesday’s paper. * It was a busy weekend in Arnprior with the Taste of the Valley buy local event and the Arnprior and District Humane Society’s Walk in the Park fundraiser on the schedule. We had photos from both events in the Tuesday, June 24 Arnprior Chronicle-Guide.

Don’t miss this... Here are some of the items we will be looking at for this Tuesday’s Chronicle-Guide: * Renfrew County Council was in session this week and Chronicle-Guide reporter Peter DeWolf was on hand to catch all the news. Pick up a copy of the Tuesday, July 1 paper for a look at the latest county news. * Graduations continued this week in Arnpriorarea schools. Pick up the July 1 Chronicle-Guide for photographs from graduation ceremonies at John XXIII, McNab Public School and St. Joseph’s Catholic School. * The Arnprior and District Memorial hospital hosted Celebrating a Milestone, an event designed to recognize many of the people involved in getting the Partners in Caring Campaign to the $2.7 million current total in the emergency department renovation fund. Check next week’s paper for coverage of the event.

By now, the report cards have either been gloated over, or eyed with dismay. At any rate, many parents are facing a long, and, we hope, warm summer with their children on the loose. I would hope those kids who are old enough, have looked for and found jobs. Anything to keep them off the streets and give them a bit of spending money they themselves have earned. So often, as we are driving home late at night, and have to pass through some of the small towns dotted throughout the Valley, we see kids on street corners, in clatches huddled around an all-night doughnut shop or, as one youngster said, “just hangin’ out.” Wally and I are utterly amazed at the ages of these young children, some, we think not yet in their teens. Where are the parents? I am well aware times have changed since my children were young, but have the responsibilities of being a parent changed so drastically too? There are two points I would like to make in this column. One is that unless a child is really young, and I mean under 10, there should be a summer job for that child.

As I See It

Mary Cook If he is too young to draw a pay cheque at the local supermarket, then surely the parent can draw up a list of jobs for which he is responsible every day. And, of course, the child should be compensated financially too. I am glad to see that my own youngest grandchildren have lists of chores to do, just like their mother before them. And one is only seven. And there are jobs around. They may not be of an executive nature. They may not have your son or daughter sitting in an air-conditioned office. It may be making hot dogs, serving ice cream and, yes, even sweeping floors. But there are jobs around. No child is too young to have responsibilities. Responsibilities breed respect. Another point I would

like to make is somewhere along the line, parents have to take back their role of being parents. I sense today that computer games, the Internet, laws that forbid parents from disciplining their children, peer pressure, idle time, and a lack of morals being practised and taught in the home, are all turning too many children into lost souls. Children need role models. I often think how lucky the children are who grow up on farms. The majority of them work right along with the parents. They learn at an early age all about the work ethic, most can run tractors before they can ride bikes and they are too dogtired at night to roam the streets of the nearest town and get into trouble. Yes, I know, there are exceptions to every rule, but the farm kids I know are solid young people who know how to put in a day’s work. And I am happy to say I am acquainted with countless productive young people living in towns right through the Ottawa Valley who have learned at a young age they are going to get out of life exactly what they put into it. They are a joy to their parents and everyone around them.

It is not an easy task being parents today, with all the outside influences facing their children. But I would hope this summer, every parent will know exactly where his child is, who he is hanging out with and will see he has a job at any one of the vast number of establishments looking for workers. At the very least, draw up a list of chores for which he is responsible for at home, and insist they be done and done properly. There is nothing like responsibility to teach a child respect. Respect for himself, other people’s property and other people. Laying down guidelines is a first step. The old adage ‘an ounce of prevention, is worth a pound of cure’ can be applied here. How much better it is that you know your child is coming home at night at a mutually agreed time, than have a member of the law rap on your door to tell you your child is responsible for an act of vandalism, or worse. And may your children have a good summer. May they have responsibilities to keep them focused, and may there be some time too for them to play. It’s all about balance, isn’t it?

DNA debate intensifies Please find me a home The first major salvo has been fired in the fight to control the DNA industry. The scientific community has been calling for some time for controls on the DNA testing. They have concerns about the misrepresentation of what can be determined by the tests and wanted to reduce the opportunity for charlatans to fool the public. On June 13 the California Health Department sent cease and desist letters to a number of the companies. Karen Nichols, the Chief of Laboratory Field Services said “We (are) no longer tolerating direct-to-consumer genetic testing in California.” That sounds fairly definite. One of the companies posted the letter on the web and you can read it at http://blog.wired. com/wiredscience/files/ madrigal.pdf . It is quite unequivocal and threatens civil and criminal proceedings if it is ignored. The ruling applies to companies anywhere if they do testing on California residents and in fact the company that received the letter above is in Texas. California has taken the position that all DNA testing is a medical procedure and is therefore subject to appropriate licensing and requires a physician’s order. This makes a certain amount of sense where people are testing for proclivity to inheritable ailments. Physicians maintain that they are better able to interpret the findings than the general public and are

The Family Historian

PATRICK WOHLER concerned that unnecessary anxiety can be caused by lack of understanding. It is also true that when a person goes directly to a lab the doctor is losing a billing opportunity. Whatever the rationale, the idea of controlling genealogy DNA testing by making it illegal seems to be a bit excessive. Several of the companies have publicly stated that they will ignore the ruling and I expect the issue will shortly be in the hands of the courts. London parish registers Queen Elizabeth I ordered parishes in England to keep registers of births, marriages and burials in 1538 and they have been a boon to researchers ever since. Most of the early registers are now in their respective County Record Offices. A project is currently underway to index and place online the parish registers of London. When I last checked there were 24 parishes either complete or in progress and the site is being added to all the time. The way the system works is a little cumbersome but it is manageable.

First of all each parish constitutes one or more databases and each database has to be searched individually. There is a map you can use if you know where in London your ancestor lived and it will show the parishes in that area. Another shortcoming is that there is no indication of religious affiliation of the parishes although my sense is that they are all Anglican. To use this resource go to their home page at and select the search option from the left hand menu. The search for your ancestor’s name is free. Just select the parish and enter the surname. You can refine the search by entering the forename but you may want to find several members of the family. The search will return the surname and forenames that are listed in that parish. To view the full details of all the matches returned by your search in a given database will cost £3.25. These details generally include date of baptism, date of birth (if given), child’s names, parents’ names, address and occupation. If you have to go through several parishes that have listings of the name you seek this could become a little expensive. However if you can narrow down their address through census records, then this could be a very helpful tool. I welcome suggestions, comments, and queries at: Please mention this newspaper in your subject line.

Food, words on In the Valley Arnprior Chronicle-Guide/Arnprior Weekender reporter Jake Davies’ radio program In the Valley continues this weekend with a new slate of local guests. The Ottawa Valley Food Co-operative’s Christina Anderman is live in Studio A discussing the food co-operative and how it’s helping area farmers. Author Heather Campbell drops in to discuss the Beachburg Writers’ Club and

her latest book Because You Asked. All that and some darn fine music to start your Saturday morning off with. So grab a coffee, tune in and turn the radio up, please. The show starts at 10 a.m. on Valley Heritage Radio at 98.7 FM on the radio dial. If you have a question or comment for In the Valley e-mail in.the.valley@

Each week in conjunction with the Arnprior and District Humane Society we feature a pet ready for adoption. Horton — shelter number 2731 Horton is a neutered, two-year-old male who has been at the shelter for a year since turning up behind a dumpster at Tim Hortons. Horton warms up quickly to people but is shy. He must go to a home with another cat and he makes for excellent friends. He is playful and loves to snuggle with other cats. Loves to be pet and doesn't mind being held for short periods of time. Clipper — shelter number 3065 Clipper, a neutered, nine-month-old male, was found wandering the streets of Arnprior badly matted and malnourished. He's now healthy and happy. Clipper is quite a character — he likes to play and show off. He gets along well with other cats but prefers dogs if you can believe it. He has no fear of dogs and he would prefer to live with a cat friendly canine. You can call the Arnprior and District Humane Society at 623-0916 between noon and 5 p.m. The shelter is in need of nylon dog leashes and collars and Whiskas Meaty Selections cat food. The shelter thanks everyone who attended A Walk in the Park. New shelter hours are from Monday to Saturday 12 to 5 p.m.

School’s out, let the fun begin School is out and summer has begun! School is over, studying is through and kids are out and about. Summer is a great time to get out and get active. The sun is shining and good weather is on its way. Get some sun shades on, a baseball cap and of course sunscreen and hang out with friends at one of Arnprior’s many parks. Arnprior has 20 parks. By far, the most beautiful is Robert Simpson Park. At the park you can play on the play structure, go swimming at the beach, grab a cool drink and snack at the canteen, or hang out under the gazebo. Communities in Bloom and Parks and Recreation Youth Programs paired up to help make the park beautiful.

Youth Corner

Kayla Reinert Classes from each of the four Arnprior schools planted gorgeous calendulas in their classrooms and they have ventured down to the park to plant them in the garden bed especially for them. Watch the flowers grow and blossom throughout the summer. Students and youth are more than welcome to go to the park and help tend to the garden throughout the summer

months. Bring your green thumb, extra plants from your garden at home, and a watering can to make your school’s section even more beautiful. This summer is going to be a blast! Between the Much Video Dance on June 27, the Learn To…Faux Stain Glass on July 14, and dodgeball on Mondays, there are many activities for youth in the community. Stop by the library for some Internet and book time when it is too hot to hang outside. The Arnprior Fair is going to be a blast Aug. 8 to 10. Watch some live bands and go on the rides. This year, the fair is going to start off with a blast on Aug. 9 with a parade downtown. Parks and Recreation Youth Programs want

to get together a float to showcase some of the awesome programs we did this past year. If you have great ideas, or you would like to participate on the float, call Kayla at the Nick Smith Centre! Thanks to all participants in SummerActive 2008. Watch for the winners of the draw! Registration is still open for Learn To…Faux Stain Glass on July 14. For $6, youth can make beautiful works of art for the home. Register at the Nick Smith Centre, at least one week in advance.

Firework misuse on the rise, says Arnprior Fire Department Be on the safe side, say authorities The following article was provided by the Arnprior Fire Department. For years, family fireworks have been available for the simple pleasure of admiring the spectacular display of colourful lights in the evening sky to celebrate recognized holidays such as Victoria Day and Canada Day. Unfortunately, there has been a dramatic increase in the misuse of fireworks causing concern for fire and police officials. Fireworks are federally regulated and are considered an explosive. The purchase, transportation and the use of fireworks must be by an adult 18 years of age, or older. Misuse of fireworks creates issues regarding personal injury, property damage as a result of fire and may include public nuisance issues. Many Ontario munici-

palities have enacted local bylaws regulating the sale and use of fireworks in their communities. The Ontario Fire Code provides legislation for fire officials to enforce the storage, handling and use of fireworks. The Office of the Fire Marshal does not recommend backyard or familygathering fireworks. The Arnprior Fire Department would like to offer the following fireworks safety tips for those still choosing to have family fireworks: • Use family fireworks only on the celebrated holiday in May (Victoria Day) and/or July (Canada Day). • Purchase and use fireworks only if you are 18 years of age or older and you completely understand the safety measures associated with fireworks. • Carefully read and follow the directions on fireworks packaging. • Never re-light ‘duds.’ • Keep a garden hose or pails of water nearby. • Light one firework at

a time and never hold a lit firework in your hand. • Keep fireworks a safe distance from all persons and any combustibles. • Avoid giving sparklers to young children. Remember, sparklers can reach a core temperature up to 1,000 degrees C. You can easily receive a third degree burn from 104 degrees C. On Canada Day, Tuesday, July 1, take advantage of the safe and thrilling display of fireworks put on by the municipality. For more information, contact Arnprior community safety/fire prevention officer John Okum at 623-4231 ext. 248.

There are lots of activities on the schedule for those looking to celebrate Canada’s 141st birthday on July 1 in Arnprior and McNab-Braeside. In Arnprior, the fun starts early, kicking off with the Lions Club pancake breakfast at the hall on Madawaska Street and wrapping up with the evening giant fireworks display near the Madawaska Bridge. The 29th Annual Arnprior Canada Day Car Show at Hydro Park, the Optimist Club children’s parade, a skateboard competition, special heritage displays and characters at the museum, and of course local entertainment are also included in the fun. For the full listing of Arnprior events, see the schedule on Pages 20 and 21 of this newspaper. In Braeside, the annual village parade begins at the fire hall at 11 a.m. Free hot dogs will be on offer and games get underway at the Braeside recreation centre around noon.

The 40 schools are linked together with the other 39 Lighthouse program schools to share ideas and strategies that led to their success so far. The award committee looks at demonstrated improvement in Education Quality and Accountability Office testing scores over a three year period and a clear focus on student learning and performance. Over the next year, McNab Public School will benefit from the experiences of the other schools across the province who

It’s a ‘berry’ good life for Cedar Hill family Special to the Arnprior Weekender As with most families, the Ralphs of Cedar Hill Berry Farm are always looking for a reason to get together for a celebration to mark a special occasion or birthday. This year, they are pleased to celebrate 30 years of berry farming with a twist. On Sunday, June 29, there will be a customer appreciation day at the farm. There will be music, delicious strawberry shortcake with ice cream, face painting and wagon rides. But first, let’s take a trip back to the 1820s when William Forsythe arrived in Cedar Hill from Ireland to settle on the beautiful waterway, which is now the Indian Creek. If only he could see the changes in his farm from those early beginnings, he would surely be amazed. During the 1800s, the Forsythe family struggled as did so many other pioneer families to carve out a living from the forests of Pakenham Township. The farm evolved from subsistence farming in the early years when providing food and shelter were the main concerns of pioneer families. One interesting fact that made the farm unique was its location on the Indian Creek where the creek dropped several feet through steep rocky walls. This, combined with the abundance of timber, allowed the Forsythes to construct a sawmill on the creek and to market large quantities of lumber, which helped to build the early houses and barns in the area. In fact, the old farmhouse, which

Missing from the photo are Ben, Sylvia and John Meloche. is the homestead, was built in 1865 with lumber sawn on the farm. In addition to lumbering, the farm produced milk, beef, pork and sheep at various stages through the years. The Ralph family became involved with the farm when Paul Ralph married Heather Lee Forsythe (seventh generation) in 1968. The passing of the farm to the next generation occurred when Jack and Lola Forsythe sold 400 acres to Heather Lee and her brother Fred in the late 1970s. Heather, Fred and Paul operated the farm for a number of years with Heather and Paul growing strawberries

and Fred and his wife Sandra raising sheep and harvesting the woodlot. In 1994, a major tragedy occurred when Heather Lee passed away after a five-year battle with breast cancer. However, as often happens in families when they experience setbacks, new people stepped forward to help operate the farm and keep the business growing. Paul and Heather’s son Devon decided to join Paul in farming, and his energy and new ideas have been a huge benefit in ensuring that the farm continues as a family enterprise. Their daughter Lindsay also helped for many years with harvesting

berries, supervising, and continuing the tradition Heather initiated of making and selling delicious Cedar Hill Berry Farm jams. In 1999, Paul remarried and Ria Meloche became the newest member of the berry farm team. One important aspect of any horticulture undertaking is the huge amount of labour necessary to successfully grow and harvest the crops. It would have been impossible for one family to survive in this type of farming for even a short time without help. Since 1978, the berry farm has had the pleasure of employing hundreds of local people of all ages in order to operate the farm efficiently. Without the support of the community in regards to working on the farm, the Ralphs would not have been able to continue. The local community has also been very supportive of Cedar Hill Berry Farm over the years in helping to harvest the crops by coming to the farm to pickyour-own or to buy freshly picked strawberries, raspberries and sweet corn. Seeing familiar faces from year to year in the berry patch and meeting new berry lovers is always very rewarding. In December, Cedar Hill Berry Farm has become a family Christmas tradition as well through a cut-your-own tree farm with wagon rides, sliding and hot chocolate. Paul, Ria and Devon felt it was a perfect time to say thank you to everyone who has supported and visited the farm during the past 30 years. So, on Sunday let’s meet on the farm covered bridge to celebrate, socialize, eat strawberry shortcake and enjoy the beauty of nature.

Designed for personal success How many people have heard of Toastmasters? Do you know what Toastmasters is all about? To be honest, it’s a small group of people, in relation to the world population, who know of this incredible organization called Toastmasters. Toastmasters are dedicated individuals, who by choice, actively participate in effective communication training. Toastmasters International empowers people to achieve their full potential and realize their dreams. Through our member clubs, people throughout the world can improve their communication and leadership skills and find the courage to change no matter what background. Today, I would like to take the opportunity to talk about a few key points to give you a clearer understanding, why Toastmasters could ben-

efit you. Toastmasters is not a service club, it is an organization designed for individuals’ success. To be successful, whether in our personal or professional lives, we need to raise the level of understanding, become team players, enhance self confidence and raise someone’s courage. Those who effectively communicate will have an advantage. Over the past 70 years more than three million

people have benefitted from the proactive and user-friendly educational structure, in a totally stress-free and no-pressure environment. Professionally designed training manuals guide us through the skill objectives, enhanced with very positive evaluations/feedback, allowing members to absorb suggestions and recommendation which will lift them to the next level in communication. The power of encouragement, a key point in Toastmasters, will help develop a person who perhaps has been shouldering the pressure of shyness, lack of self confidence and low self esteem, into a more productive, inspired and positive human being. WHO JOINS TOASTMASTERS? Nurses, equipment operators, medical professionals, secretaries, self-

employed people, farmers, people from diverse cultural, professional and educational background, who aspire to enhance their: 1. Listening skills, for better understanding with colleague and clients. 2. Presentation skills, be more effective workshop facilitator and discussion leader, learning to speak from manuals with time limitations. 3. Increase their confidence and self-assuredness. In conclusion, those who have the ability to effectively and professionally present themselves perhaps are the leaders of tomorrow. Fred Schuck is a member of Toastmasters since 1999. We meet at the Arnprior District Memorial Hospital second floor in the outpatient training room. Fred can be reached at 720-9228.

Grand opening of Ottawa Valley Food Co-operative The grand opening of the Ottawa Valley Food Co-operative will be held on Saturday July 5, from noon to 4 p.m. in the auditorium and lower parking area of the Marguerite Centre (700 Mackay St.) in Pembroke. Everyone is welcome, and there is no charge to drop by. The Ottawa Valley Food Co-operative is an Internet-based, online ordering service that links local consumers to local farmers, growers, and producers. This will be an

opportunity to learn about the food co-op and meet some of the co-op’s producer members. Outdoors, producer members will be displaying and selling their products, and you can enjoy a barbecued local beef, bison or veggie burger. You will also have a chance to chat about local food while enjoying delicious local food samples throughout the afternoon. If you wish, take a guided tour of the beautiful and productive commu-

LEGREE, Isabelle

In Memory of Jason Grose

Always loved and remembered by, Wife Helen, children and families

Death leaves a heartache, No one can heal. Love leaves a memory, No one can steal. Silent thoughts of time together Hold memories that will last forever.

In cherished memory, of our son and brother TYLER “TY” Sonnenburg, 1985-2002

Passages Peacefully in hospital at Arnprior while surrounded by her loving family in the early morning hours of Friday, June 20th, 2008. Isabelle Winnifred Legree of Arnprior at the age of 81 years. Dear daughter of the late Gordon Burnette and the late Veronica Baldwin. Beloved wife of the late Willis Legree. Dearly loved mother of Brian Legree (Jackie) and Kathy Kirchhof (Ron), both of Arnprior and Bruce Legree (Joan Ward) of Smiths Falls. Isabelle was predeceased by her son Wayne December 2, 2007. Special friend of Don Murdoch of Braeside. Isabelle was also predeceased by a grandson, Shane; a greatgrandson, Curtis; her brother Gordon Burnette and sisters: Kay Faith (late Morgan) and Mary Ouellette. Cherished and proud “Grandma” of Kelly-Anne, Darcy, Darrell, Chantal, Claudette, Katie, Kristy and Kyle as well as 7 great-grandchildren. Friends joined us for visitation at the Pilon Family Funeral Home, 50 John Street North, Arnprior on Sunday from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. and after 10 a.m. Monday. A Service in celebration of Isabelle’s life was conducted in the Pilon Family Chapel on Monday morning, June 23rd at 11 o’clock. Rev. Milton Fraser of St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church officiating. Interment Maloch Road Cemetery, Arnprior. A reception will follow in The DeRenzy Hall, St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, (corner of Daniel and McGonigal Streets), Arnprior. For those wishing, a donation made to the Canadian Cancer Society or the CNIB would be appreciated by Isabelle’s family.

The rolling stream of life rolls on, But still the vacant chair, Recalls the love, the voice, the smile, Of one who once sat there.

Memories are important And sometimes fade into the past But to those of us who loved and lost you, The memories will always last.



x When the warmth of the sun touches our face, o We see your smile and feel your embrace, x We hear the whisper of love in the wind o And we know that you are close to us again. x The rain speaks of tears and the thunder of pain, o But soon the sun comes to earth to reclaim. x As the days come and go and the world moves o on, x We know you’re still here, you’ll never be gone. o On the night the Angel came and took your hand, x We cried as you left for an unknown land. o But Heaven rejoiced as you came into sight, x For your soul was a diamond, shining so bright! o x Always and forever love you o x Mom & Dad & Travis

SAMPLE -- IN LOVING MEMORY of a Dear Husband and Father, Lawrence Sample, who passed away June 26, 2007.

Financial Focus

OPEN HOUSES Marlene McRoberts

In recent years, Canadians have increasingly been using joint accounts for estate planning purposes. In particular, it has become common for people to transfer property to adult children in a joint ownership arrangement known as ‘joint tenants with rights of survivorship.’ (Note that this form of ownership is not available in Quebec.) There are a variety of reasons for doing this, including: • Avoiding probate fees, which are levied by provincial governments on the assets of an estate; • Maintaining privacy, because assets passing as a right of survivorship will not become part of a public record, which is the case with assets in an estate; • Simplifying the estate plan, as assets that pass directly to the survivor are not considered part of the estate; and, • Controlling estate expenses because many estate charges are levied on the assets passing through the estate. Along with these advantages, however, there are also some potential risks that should be considered as well. A key issue relates to whether the asset passing under the right of survivorship is to be considered part of the parent’s estate when it is divided. For example, a parent might place a bond portfolio worth $60,000 into joint title with his son, while leaving a $100,000 stock portfolio in his estate, which is to be divided equally among his four children.

In early June, local talent was on display at a coffee house at Arnprior District High School. The event was hosted by teacher Brian Reid and students Ben Hrkach and Diana Giamblanco. It was the third and final coffee house of the year. The evening’s performances included an accordian version of Johnny Cash’s Ring of Fire, a rendition of the song My Friends from the movie Sweeney Todd and an Irish dance. Also, teacher James Hrkach and two of his sons, Tim and Ben, played together to the delight of the audience. The event was a great way to wrap up the season for the local performers. Above, Tim and Ben Hrkach on stage during the Thursday evening show.

Continued from Page 34 Should the son inherit $85,000 (bond portfolio of $60,000 plus $25,000 representing one-quarter share of stock portfolio) or $40,000 (one quarter of bond fund plus one quarter of stock portfolio)? According to recent Supreme Court decisions, it would appear that the simple existence of joint title assets passing from a parent to a child is no longer sufficient to ensure the right of survivorship. As a result, there is no guarantee the son will inherit the $85,000. Ultimately, the courts have maintained that evidence of the deceased’s intention is of primary importance. There are also some other legal risks to consider with joint ownership. For instance: A transfer of property into joint ownership generally means not only a loss of sole control over the property, but sometimes also the inability to make decisions relating to the property without the consent of the joint owner. Assets held in a joint account may form part of creditor proceedings if one of the joint account holders becomes insolvent or declares bankruptcy. As illustrated above, there is the potential for conflict following the death of a parent. For example, if only one child is registered as a joint owner, there could be a dispute with other siblings or family members who believe they too should have a claim on the proceeds of the jointly held account. If the account was transferred to a married adult child, and that person’s marriage breaks down, the account may also be open to division with the spouse. Another important point to note is that a transfer to an adult child may trigger a capital gain/loss through the deemed disposition of a proportionate interest in the account. This could be particularly problematic if the property has appreciated significantly. And some people find they have no cash available to pay for the tax that may be due on the disposition. In short, the issues surrounding joint accounts are extremely complex, from both taxation and

Mark your calendars, starting July 3, four concerts will be taking place in the evening at 7 p.m. at Fitzroy Provincial Park. Here’s the lineup of performers for 2008: • July 3: The Bowes Brothers • July 10: D.W. James • July 17: Hyrd Guns • July 24: Ambush The concert series starts with local

youth groups, who will be fundraising by selling food from the barbecue and beverages at 6:15 p.m. In August the Concerts in the Park move to the Stittsville Village Square Park with three more Thursday night performances: • July 31: Local Traffic • Aug. 7: The Fabulous Flashbax • Aug. 14: The Mick Armitage Band The cost of the concerts is a donation at the entrance to the parks with proceeds going to the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario.
