Arnprior stop for Dimestore Fishermen?

Lumberjack breakfast St. John Chrysostom parishioners and members of the community flocked to the parish hall on Sept. 14 for the annual free lumberjack breakfast in Arnprior on Sunday, Sept. 14. The event celebrated the Feast of St. John Chrysostom, and was sponsored by the Knights of Columbus and the Parish Council. At left, James Scott, 8, enjoys his eggs and sausages. In keeping with the theme, the event featured historical films, including Consolidated Bathurst in the Ottawa Valley, The Story of Canadian Pine and J.J. McFadden Lumber Company.

Arnprior recreation director says TV show could put Arnprior on the map

By CHERYL BRINK Arnprior Weekender The Dimestore Fishermen hope to feature Arnprior on their TV show next fall. The half-hour program airs across North America, highlighting the best fishing in Canada and promoting community tourism attractions. Director of recreation services Glenn Arthur said the show has requested to shoot a segment in town in 2009. “It puts Arnprior on the map,” said Arthur, adding the hosts also speak to locals about favourite destinations — fishing related or not — that will be a huge boost to the local tourism economy. It costs about $10,000 to host and feed the show executives and crew for five days, but town councillors agreed the expense would be worth the exposure. They will consider the show taping for next year’s budget, and Gibeau suggested they research new tourism revenue to offset the cost.

Developer wants entire Mary Street site rezoned residential Mayor declares Oct. 5 to 11 Fire Prevention Week

“The use of the property is very rational for residential.”

Eric Burton Arnprior councillor 128687

By CHERYL BRINK Arnprior Weekender Mary Street developer Waldo Hordichuk wasn’t happy with council’s decision last week to only rezone part of his property for residential uses. The Arnprior councillors decided to let the builder turn the former Alexander Reid Public School into apartment buildings but not to develop the rest of the 128 Mary St. site. This week council received a letter from the developer’s lawyer, requesting they revisit the bylaw amendment that would allow for more than just a community facility. After some discussion at the committee of the whole meeting on Monday, Sept. 15, the decision didn’t change — but several councillors said the developer was more than willing to meet their regulations and he should be given the chance to build there in the future. “The use of the property is very rational for residential,” said Coun. Eric Burton. “(The developer) has met every-

thing we’ve asked for,” added Reeve Wayne Stack. The letter suggested that the entire lot be rezoned at once, rather than spending time and money on two separate applications. Mayor Terry Gibeau said he was more concerned about the lack of a concrete design plan for the second section, not about the height or density concerns. Council finally passed a motion to stick with last week’s decision and talk more about rezoning when an official development application has been filed. Only four councillors wanted that timeline, the other three voters preferred the bylaw be amended for the entire site at once. FIRE PREVENTION WEEK Mayor Gibeau declared Oct. 5 to 11 Fire Prevention Week. The week is recognized nationally to promote fire safety and make people aware of the statistics and risks surrounding house fires. “With all the work our fire department does and this still happens,” said Gibeau. “It’s still a significant issue.”

Fire chief Tom Burnette said there was a close call in Arnprior just recently because a homeowner left a pot on the stove when they left the house. According to Arnprior Fire Prevention, cooking is the number one cause of residential fires in the province. There were 1,367 houses ablaze in 2006 from mistakes in the kitchen, with nearly 200 injuries and $10.2 million in damages. “It’s a real concern,” said Burnette, adding that he hopes to reach every home in Arnprior with fire prevention tips and awareness. Check out www.ofm.gov.on.ca for more information. FUNERAL HOME ON BASKIN Arnprior councillors agreed to change the bylaw on Baskin Drive to allow a funeral home in the residential area. Pilon Funeral Home owner Andre Pilon hopes to tear down the building at 115 to 117 Baskin Dr. and put up a one-storey funeral home in its place. A bylaw will be drafted for the site and brought back to council next week.

Karson opens new plant for highway expansion project By CHERYL BRINK Arnprior Weekender

Karson Konstruction took on their biggest project yet with the widening of Hwy. 417. Karson held an open house at their Spratt Quarry site on Carp Road last week to show off their new equipment and facilities, which were necessary expansions to keep up with the demands of the new road development. The event was also

to celebrate the company’s 35th anniversary. Karson vice-president Erwin Schulz said this is the largest job they have ever had, so a new asphalt plant and crusher were essential additions. “Time is of the essence,” explained Schulz, adding that they are working on the highway expansion mostly at night to decrease traffic snarls. He said the project will be finished by the middle of next summer.

The quarry has been in production since the early 70s, and Schulz said it has the capacity for 175 million more tonnes of aggregate. About half a million tonnes will be needed for the highway widening project, in addition to 200,000 tonnes of hot mix asphalt. Karson was nearing capacity before they got the 417 job, so more storage and equipment was needed to keep up.

Arnprior Chronicle-Guide 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: * The federal election has been called for Oct. 14, and the Arnprior Chronicle-Guide is on the beat. We had the rundown on the latest local election news and coverage of the Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke NDP nomination in the Sept. 16 Arnprior ChronicleGuide. * The alliance of municipalities looking into the feasibility of buying the Beaumen Recycling plant in Renfrew has arranged for a parallel management of the plant for the next three months. We had the story in Tuesday’s paper. * A crow found in Arnprior tested positive for the West Nile virus this month, bringing the area’s total diseased birds in all to three. We spoke with local health officials about what the discovery means. For the story, pick up the Sept. 16 Chronicle-Guide. * We were at Arnprior’s Terry Fox Run last weekend. For coverage of the popular annual cancer research fundraiser, see Tuesday’s paper.

Don’t miss this...

Here are some of the items we will be looking at for this Tuesday’s Chronicle-Guide: * Have you decided yet which federal candidate you’re going to vote for on Oct. 14? Pick up a copy of the Tuesday, Sept. 23 Arnprior Chronicle-Guide to what the Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke candidates have to say in our candidate profiles.

Upstaged by a mouse Having chalked up more than 100 speeches and public appearances last year, it isn’t unreasonable to expect that on occasion, something out of the ordinary is bound to happen when I am at the lectern. Take the time I spoke at a large dinner south — east of Ottawa several years ago. The introducer went to great lengths to give a wonderfully glowing report of my credentials, then turned to me, beaming, and said “Please welcome Betty Brown!” Needless to say, I took a quick look around to see if someone else was going to stand up, and when no one did, I quickly went to the podium. I’m happy now I repressed the urge to correct him, which no doubt would have embarrassed both of us. And let’s face it, when you have a simple name like Cook, it invites confusion. And then there was the time I was speaking at a large gathering where I knew just about everyone in the room. This was a no-nonsense group of community volunteers, all

As I See It

Mary Cook belonging to a well known organization. And, when it came time to be introduced (I could see I was next on the printed program), I geared myself for the usual flowery introduction. Instead, a booming voice came from the very depths of the large hall and said, “OK, Mary, you’re on!” So much for the flowery introduction. An incident at a speech a few days ago measures right up at the top as far as excitement goes. The Ottawa group was small, but all dedicated workers in their community, and the dinner I was to speak at was held in a beautiful historic

building, with the dining tables complete with damask cloths and napkins, lovely silverware, and all the trimmings one would expect to find in a prestigious setting. For obvious reasons, the site will remain anonymous. I was deep into my speech, when someone from the all-female audience let a screech out of her, and pointed to the room divider on my right. Naturally, I stopped mid-sentence and followed everyone’s eyes to a corner in the room and saw a tiny mouse edging its way up the divider. Soon every eye in the room was on the little intruder. Stifled screams and one or two quick exits from the dining room brought a clatch of waiters scurrying to capture the little mouse, who seemed to be oblivious to the bedlam. Needless to say, I had to halt my speech (right at the point where I had hoped to make great impact with a profound statement), and watch, as did everyone else, as one waiter attempted to catch the mouse with his bare hands.

Did you know it is impossible to catch a mouse with your bare hands? It took another run at climbing to the top of the divider, changed direction and headed down, wherein all of us raised our handbags off the floor in case it decided one would be a perfect place to find shelter. And then it vanished. No one is sure where it went. Under the divider? Over the divider? Into the large potted plant in the corner? It’s anyone’s guess. Gradually, the room returned to order, and I was urged to go on. I’m not sure if it was because of the audience’s sympathy for me, the guest speaker, or because I had kept my cool, or because I was able to recapture interest, but did get a standing ovation. Spanning the many decades I have spoken to, with as few as five people, and as many as several thousand, being upstaged by a common mouse beats the many other odd circumstances I have endured over the years as a public speaker.

Obscure European locations Worst municipal road campaign are now easier to find online launches, voting open until Oct. 20 By PATRICK WOHLER The Family Historian

The Getty Research Institute has placed a thesaurus of European place names on line at www.getty.edu/research/conducting_research/vocabularies/tgn . I was intrigued so I tried it with my father’s birthplace, Budelsdorf, Germany. The search box asked for the name, place type and nation. I entered it as a town in Germany and received a negative response. This was not encouraging so I omitted the place type and received an immediate hit. It came up as a populated place, not a town. By selecting the response and then ‘view selected records’ I received the geographical coordinates. This is a great way to pin down some of the obscure places that we encounter. IRISH STUDIES SYMPOSIUM Library and Archives Canada is responding to the increasing interest in Irish research by teaming up with the National Archives of Ireland to offer a two day symposium. It will take place Monday and Tuesday, November 3 and 4 at LAC, 395 Wellington Street, Ottawa. Doors open to the public at 8:30 am and it will take place in Exhibition Room A. There will be six sessions and a round table open dialogue. The topics include: the Irish in Quebec, famine and commemoration, Irish politics, the 1911 census of Ireland, Irish culture and Irish history. Simultaneous translation in English and French will be available. The cost of this symposium is free but they do request that those who would

like to participate RSVP to 613-992-2618 or webservices@lac-bac.gc.ca. More details are available at www. collectionscanada.gc.ca/ireland and they will be updated throughout September and October. UPDATING URLS In their September issue, Family Tree Magazine reviewed what they consider to be the 101 best genealogy websites. It looked like an opportune time for me to update my personal index of websites and I am glad that I did. There were new sites to be added and a fair number of URLs to be tweaked but what impressed me most was the rate of growth of many of the websites. Some of them more than doubled their content since my last entry and many had expanded the range of their content.

BIFHSGO CONFERENCE This is the weekend for the 2008 conference of the British Isles Family History Society of Greater Ottawa. It is always a highlight of the genealogy year and a wonderful opportunity to listen to great speakers and meet fellow family historians. Details of the conference are available on their website at www.bifhsgo.ca . On the weekend there is ample free parking in the lot to the east of the Library and Archives building on Wellington Street. I hope to see you there. I welcome suggestions, comments, and queries at: p_wohler@hotmail.com. Please mention this newspaper in your subject line.

Every day in Ontario, the cost of using substandard municipal roads and bridges increases through damage to vehicles(cars, trucks, buses and bikes), the environment and our wallets, and also threatens our safety. Now entering its sixth year, Ontario’s Worst Municipal Roads Campaign launched with a call for politicians of all levels and stripes to address the historically inadequate investment in improving our road and bridge infrastructure and to dedicate long-term sustainable funding to help make our drives smoother and safer. “We have had tremendous success bringing to the forefront the issue of Ontario’s crumbling municipal roads and bridges infrastructure with over 90 per cent of the roads named to our annual list being addressed,” said Kris Barnier, Chair of Ontario’s Worst Munic-

ticians to make road and bridge repairs a top-level priority. “Road users can join the campaign for sustainable funding and make their voices heard by casting their ballot for a worst road at CAA stores or select approved repair facilities, or by logging onto www.worstroads.ca,” said Barnier. “Voters also have the option of sharing their vote with their Mayor, or they can send an e-card to Prime Minister Harper and Premier McGuinty, calling on them to share money with municipalities for roads and bridges.” The campaign, sponsored by CAA and the Ontario Road Builders’ Association, will be travelling to communities across Ontario over the next six weeks to underscore the importance of making motorists’ voices heard. Voting closes Oct. 20.

leafy portrait with tendrils, vines and embellishments. Carroll’s Comfortably Shy is a landscape study of textures featuring silk fusion, top stitching and an almost hidden Kiwi bird. Carolyn Gibbs uses a design of three intertwined fish, ‘Three Fishes’ to symbolize the Trinity. Appliqué, couching, embroidery, glitter and quilting enhance the dark colours used to reinforce the symbolism of the work. Ann Dunlop set herself the task to create art from a single piece of leftover Asian theme upholstery fabric. Reading Tea Leaves uses texture to create depth and thread painting to add colour. Asian symbols, used to interpret tea leaf readings such as a kite that denotes long-life and various Chinese calligraphy images, have been incorporated. Dunlop’s piece is a very restful, meditative piece. The exhibition opens Sept. 18 and runs until Oct. 31. Meet the artists at a vernissage on Sept. 24, 7 to 9 p.m. Call Read’s 613-257-7323.

Emergence, the premier exhibition by a group of six eastern Ontario fibre artists, is open now at Reads Book Shop, Heritage Walk Mall, 130 Lansdowne Ave., Carleton Place. This is an exciting exhibition of art in this emerging genre. Pop, an image of red poppies created by JoAnne Zorzi, features a unique drawing technique using unspun silk fiber to draw images that are then solidified in a fusion technique. The real-life scale of red poppies on a fiery yellow/orange background makes the work sizzle. Zorzi, an accomplished artist who frequently uses this technique has exhibited in Ottawa and Toronto. “The fabric made me think of Northern Lights so that’s what I did,” said local fibre artist Sharon Collins of her work. The dark somber landscape, highlighted by a turquoise/purple sky, is composed of hand dyed and commercial batiks, organza, fabric paint and extensive thread painting. “I wanted an Earth Mother” said Barb Carroll of her Picassoesque woman Serenity captured in a woodsy

Annual rural ramble set to showcase Renfrew County living The 14th Annual Original Rural Ramble in the Ottawa Valley is getting ready to celebrate rural living the weekend of Sept. 27 and 28. This traditional self-guided driving tour takes visitors through the various agricultural and rural operations of the scenic Ottawa Valley countryside. From watching an artist create a work of art to learning about the rich Valley heritage and culture or how to groom and tack a horse – there’s something for everyone. Sites provide visitors with the opportunity to experience rural living first-hand by offering hands-on activities, demonstrations, guided tours and much more. Unique educational and interactive experiences are available for families of all ages. Some of the things a Rambler can do this year include: visiting a farm, sugar bush, nursery or pumpkin patch; touring a museum or cave; going on a guided nature walk or fossil hunt;

touring a radio station and speaking on-air; trying your hand at pottery, embroidery, weaving, rope or butter making; carving a pumpkin, making a scarecrow, participating in a scavenger hunt or sampling delicious homebaked goods. The cost to attend the Ramble is $10 per adult and one accompanying child (under 12 years); each additional child (under 12 years) is $2. Bracelets are valid for both days and the number of sites you can visit is unlimited. Bracelets are on sale now and are available at various retail outlets located throughout Renfrew County. The Rural Ramble is organized by the Ottawa Valley Tourist Association and the Rural Ramble Committee, which is comprised of volunteers from participating sites and the agricultural community.

September is almost over! Youth have started school and they are in the scheme of things by now. Because the mad rush of back to school is over, the year of great sports programs are now underway. We have been bombarded with program registrations and our programs are filling up quick. Parents are urged to come in as early as possible to register for programs as there are limits on the amount of participants in each program. One particular program that is high in demand is our After School Program. This program is free to students in Arnprior schools and $10 for students in McNab Public School. It is open for anyone in grades 4 to 8 and promises to be a fun time. For an hour after school, once a week, we will be playing fun, non competitive, non traditional active games. The goal of the program is to have all youth come out and have fun

Arnprior Weekender

Bluefish hope to make a splash in upcoming swim season By SHERRY HAAIMA Arnprior Weekender The new big fish of Arnprior’s swim club is no stranger to the program. June Bekker, who has been named the new head coach of the Bluefish Swim Club, has been coaching in the entry-level program for close to 10 years. The level two rated competitive swimming instructor is enthusiastic about the upcoming season. “Well, I’m really, really looking forward to it,” says Bekker. She hopes to get the word out about the program in time for swimmers to drop in to the Monday, Sept. 22, registration. The organization is comprised of three levels: the entry-level Sears I Can Swim Program; the Junior Bluefish Swim Club, an introduction to competitive swimming; and the Bluefish Swim Club, the competitive team. All three offer valuable instruction, says Bekker. “We’re going to try to provide the kids with an excellent opportunity in the competitive program as well as the junior levels,” she says. When Bekker was approached to take over the position, it was an easy decision. “When they asked me I said, ‘Sure, I have a couple of ideas in

my head.’” Bekker succeeds past head coach of the 25-year-old club, Bette Rowe, who had been coaching for “just about the duration of those years,” says Bekker. Looking ahead to the season, Bekker says she hopes to equip the swimmers with some new training equipment. “I really want to see these kids have the best opportunity they can get.” One of the new “toys” is called a water snake and uses resistance to train the swimmers, she explains. Other new equipment includes hand paddles and specialized flutterboards. The club has been struggling somewhat in recent years to maintain membership and the hope is that a healthy registration will help solidify the program. Bekker points out swimming is an activity that can help athletes train for any sport. Along with the health benefits of swimming is the safety factor. Youth with solid skills in the water are far less likely to have an accident. “From a parent’s perspective, it makes a lot of sense to join,” says Bekker. Involvement now can lead to continued healthy activity. ”Once you start swimming as a youngster it’s a lifelong sport,” she says.

“It’s such a good healthy sport.” This summer’s Olympics in Beijing, which included American Michael Phelps’ incredible medal tally, certainly helped raise the profile of swimming, says Bekker. “He put swimming on the map,” she says. The sport doesn’t require hundreds of dollars of equipment, either, says Bekker. “All you need are a swimsuit and a pair of goggles.” Registration costs are reasonable, too, when you think about, she says. “To be able to go to swim four or five times a week, that’s a pretty good deal.” Bekker even invites potential swimmers to try out the program for a week before signing up for the season. “Give it a try,” she says. The Bluefish are involved in approximately six competitions each year, most of which are located in the area. “Usually two of them are out of town, the rest are local to Ottawa and the Valley.” Registration for the Sears I Can Swim (9 a.m. to 9 p.m.) and Bluefish (6 to 9 p.m.) swim clubs takes place on Monday, Sept. 22, at the Nick Smith Centre. For more information on the Bluefish program call 613-6232395 or visit www.arnpriorbluefish.com.

Riding program brings home medals from Parasport Games By SUSAN CRESSY Special to the Weekender

Three riders from the Lanark County Therapeutic Riding Program competed in the 2008 Ontario ParaSport Summer Games in Toronto on July 26. In addition to the para-equestrian there were 131 athletes participating in boccia, powerlifting, goalball, athletics and wheelchair tennis with some athletes qualifying for the Paralympics in Beijing. Twenty-one riders from all over Ontario competed in the discipline of dressage at the Community Association for Riding for the Disabled in Toronto. Tim Dack of Almonte, Amber Walker from Kinburn and Jennifer Young of Carleton Place worked hard with their coach and instructor Cindy Duffy to prepare for the event where they rode a walk/trot dressage test in the entry level division. Congratulations to Dack who brought home the gold medal in his division and to Walker and Young who tied for the bronze —

Coach Cindy Duffy and Amber Walker, Tim Dack and Jennifer Young travelled to Toronto for the Ontario ParaSport Summer Games. Dack won silver. Walker and Young tied for bronze. a great accomplishment for each of them. Dack was also chosen from amongst all the riders who were competing to receive an Award of Merit. Many of you know Dack from his fundraising efforts for the Therapeutic Riding Program. Every year he bikes and hikes around the neighborhood to

raise money for the Ride-a-Thon and last year he broke his record once again and collected over $8000 in pledges. Dack is the only rider who has been with the program since it began 22 years ago. He began riding at age nine and now he owns his own horses, which he cares for on his farm

with his brother Arthur. Dack is an example of the progress that can be made when the focus is on abilities of each individual person. He is also an avid skier with the Mount Pakenham Adapted Skiing Program. Young doesn’t let the fact that she is legally blind get in her way as she sets high goals for herself in both riding and skiing. She volunteers at two thrift shops in Carleton Place and lives independently in the community. Walker loves all things equestrian and has an amazing memory for facts and statistics that relate not only to horses but a wide range of knowledge that she has gleaned from her love of reading. Her dream is to own her own horse and to care for it on her property in Kinburn. There are more than 135 riders in the Lanark County Therapeutic Riding Program who range in age from two to 72 years old and come from, not only Lanark County but Renfrew, Arnprior, Orleans, Ottawa, Kanata, Westport and all over the Ottawa Valley .

The riders have a wide range of abilities and therapeutic riding is a holistic way to approach rehabilitation, therapy and recreation. When a young rider begins in the program, riding skills are not necessarily the focus. They may be working on balance, co-ordination, speech and communication, social skills, cognitive development and attention span. This is accomplished by activities on the horse, including some basic gymnastic positions, games and activities that make learning fun. More than 65 dedicated volunteers lead the horses and walk beside the riders to give them support and encouragement. The gentle horses provide the riders with a unique experience with their rhythmical movement and calm acceptance of their passengers. When these young riders are given the opportunity to achieve success at their own pace, confidence and self esteem grow and maybe someday they will be competing at a provincial horse show.

Beginning in October in conjunction with the Kenwood Athletic Centre, the Ottawa Valley Soccer Academy will be offering elite training for youth in the Ottawa Valley, with a mission to develop technical excellence, vision, creativity and fitness in young players. With 35 years playing and coaching experience in Europe and North America, head instructor Nathan Woods, (Ontario Soccer Association senior coach), brings his vast knowledge of the game down to the grass roots level to help local soccer players from the Ottawa Valley, maximize their potential. As a graduate of the Ontario Soccer Association U16 soccer program and ex-member of the Canadian Forces National Soccer Team, winning the 1998 Amateur World Cup in the Netherlands, Woods understands what it takes to train and play at a high level. As a current coach in the Eastern Region Soccer League with Ottawa Valley United, he sees the need to keep local emerging soccer talents on the ball over the winter months and through years of coaching, has developed an indoor program which will enhance and build technical, tactical, physical and mental facets of the game. Sessions will be broken down into two 10week blocks consisting of intense one hour training sessions, encompassing all facets of the beautiful game. Sessions will be offered to boys U13 (born 1995 and earlier) and boys U10 (born 1998 and earlier) beginning in October. Spaces are limited (maximum 12 per age group) so pre-registration is being offered now. (Cost is $100 per 10 week block). A girls program will be offered if there is interest.

Jack and Faith’s No Frills donates $2,800 to Partners in Caring Jack and Faith’s No Frills has donated $2,800 to the Partners in Caring Campaign to renovate the emergency department at Arnprior and District Memorial Hospital. The funds were raised during the ‘Give a little, help a lot’ campaign that ran for a week in September. Customers were asked to add $2 on their grocery bill. The customer’s contribution was $1,354 with owners Jack and Faith Bird matching the funds and rounding it up to $2,800. “This is one more part of the Arnprior community stepping up to help the Partners in Caring campaign succeed. We thank Jack, Faith and their customers for supporting the hospital. We look forward to their continued support,” said John Carkner, Partners in Caring Campaign Team member and foundation board member “We wanted to be a part of the hospital fundraising in some way. We realize the importance of updating the emergency room at the Arnprior hospital and we are happy to be able to give back to our community,” said the Birds.

OFA releases zone election results

Forty days for Life campaign set to begin The following is a release from the Calabogie/Renfrew Pro-Life Association. In 2004 in a small Texan town in the United States, a young man by the name of Shawn Carney gathered with three other individuals to organize the first ever 40 Days for Life Campaign. Since that first campaign in 2004, this movement has rapidly spread across that country and this year has crossed the border into Canada. It is good news for pro-life advocates. What is 40 Days for Life? It is a peaceful and prayerful vigil held in front of an abortion facility for 40 days and nights. Beginning Sept. 24 through Nov. 2, simultaneous campaigns will be held from coast to coast in 170 communities across the United States and three capital cities in Canada – Toronto, Ottawa and Halifax. This movement in the United States has had tremendous success and has seen the closure of abortion clinics in some states and a reduction in the number of abortions at other clinics. This movement’s primary objective is to see an end to abortion and it strives to accomplish this through a threefold initiative of prayer and fasting, peaceful vigil in front of an abortion facility and community outreach, teaching others about the detrimental effects of abortion on women and society as a whole. This movement is a simple but basic idea meant to save lives and to change hearts. It is completely non-judgmental and nonviolent. It is an opportunity to bring people together who share the same beliefs and hopes in seeing an end to abortion. We are called to be faithful witnesses to what we profess and believe to be true and that is that abortion is a grave evil and must be abolished. There have been grave injustices in our world throughout history. Human slavery and the Holocaust come to mind as

two of the worst injustices in the history of mankind. There is always a turning point that eventually leads to the end of a grave injustice; it is written in history books. That will happen with abortion too some day and this 40 Days for Life Campaign might just be the turning point which will affect an end to the atrocious injustice being perpetrated on the innocent in the womb on a daily basis. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said that: “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” This movement might well prove to be challenging and controversial, but remember it will be peaceful and prayerful and with time and repeated vigils it can turn the tide in the battle to end abortion. We cannot fail as we have truth and justice on our side. Sometimes God uses ordinary people to accomplish extraordinary things. So don’t be afraid to be part of this extraordinary movement and go down in history as one of the first in Canada to plant a seed and see it grow into the eventual death of abortion. In the Bible when God sought change or a transformation, it often was accomplished over a period of 40 days of prayer and fasting. This vigil will be in effect for 40 days 24 hours per day. Anyone who wishes to participate in the 40 Days for Life Campaign in Ottawa can join others in front of the Morgantaler abortion clinic at 65 Bank St. (corner of Bank and Sparks). There will always be someone there to guide newcomers 24 hours per day. When we are given an opportunity to make a difference, the onus is on us to take action. Won’t you take a few hours of your time in defence of the unborn? Praying for an end to abortion over the desig-

convention.

The ballots have been counted and with one exception the Ontario Federation of Agriculture knows who will represent the 15 zones on the new board. The exception is the Hamilton-Wentworth Zone where an initial ballot delivery problem means OFA members there had until Sept. 19 to mark and return their ballots. Four zone directors were elected by acclamation at the close of nominations: Joe Vermunt for Huron and Perth; Keith Currie for Simcoe, York and Peel; Alex Ferguson for Prescott, Russell, Stormont, and Glengarry; and Ken Tomlinson for Northern Ontario. The successful candidates will be joined by three at-large directors to be elected at the 2008 annual meeting of the OFA in Toronto as part of the OFA

West Carleton songbird launches first CD By SARAH TRANT Arnprior Weekender

Kelly Ann Wilson is 17. Like many others in her age group she lives at home with her family, attends school at ‘West’, and dreams about the future. But the resemblance ends there because not many teenagers can claim to achieving one of their longest held and most hoped for dreams; but this is exactly what has happened to Kelly Ann who, at the Kinburn Community Centre on Saturday Sept. 20, will be launching her first CD of 12 songs with words and music written (with the exception of just two “which I co-wrote with my dad”) by her. It’s said that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. This is certainly the case with Kelly Ann whose grandmother, Helen Wilson, is a well-known author of a number of books and whose father, Bill and his group, Local Traffic, has a stellar reputation as an entertainer and musician of note up and down the valley. Kelly Ann can’t remem-

Kelly Ann Wilson will be releasing her first CD on Sept. 20 at the Kinburn Community Centre ber a time when “I wasn’t writing. Short stories, poems, stuff like that. I guess I started the minute I could read and write.” Music came a little later. She was eight when she got her first guitar and

although she took a few lessons, “I guess I just took to it plus I got a lot of help from my dad!” The album, Sunshine gets its name from a song that she wrote when she was just 10. “I wrote it for

my aunt who had cancer,” she explains. “It was something special I wanted to do for her

to give her hope.” The choice of songs for the CD wasn’t easy, given the fact that there were more than 300 songs from which to select the most appropriate. Kelly Ann explains she “Tried to get a good mix and I think we got a good balance. The album’s got sad songs, and happy songs, and one or two just sort of thoughtful songs.” Classified under ‘thoughtful’ would be Boots — the song Kelly Ann wrote for her grandfather who passed away just months ago. “My family means a lot to me,” she says quietly. “I guess I’m just a country girl with country values but I know without the love and support of my family and my friends — old and new — I wouldn’t have been able to come this far.” The CD also draws from the rich creative talent that is a trademark of the Ottawa Valley. The musicians — all friends and fellow performers:

recording facilities as well a great technical support and assistance from Constant Sound studios in Constance Bay; and the CD package made possible through the photographic sensitivity and genius of Krista Plattenburg, Brenda Deugo Mills and Katie MacLauren. Over a year in the making by far the hardest step was the first one — to find a studio suitable to work with Kelly Ann’s country style. “We were really, really lucky when we found Constant Sound,” says Kelly Ann. Doors open at 7 and the show starts at 7.30 p.m. with an airing of the CD followed by an evening of live music from dad, Bill Wilson and “our musical friends” as Kelly Ann puts it. Copies of the CD may be purchased for $15 each. Entrance will be by donation, with all proceeds going to the Arnprior and District Memorial Hospital’s Partner’s in Caring program.

Toastmasters program designed for personal success By FRED SCHUCK Toastmasters How many people have heard of Toastmasters? Do you know what Toastmasters is all about? 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 benefit you. Toastmasters is not a service club, it is an organization designed for individuals success. To be successful, weather 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 3 million people have benefited from the proactive and user friendly educational structure, in a totally stress free and

no pressure environment. Professionally designed training manuals guides us though 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 etc., etc., 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) confidence and selfassuredness Those who have the ability to effectively and professionally present themselves perhaps are the leaders of tomorrow. We meet at the Arnprior hospital second floor in the outpatient training room. Fred can be reached at 720-9228.

Pet evacuation plan: are you ready? New Orleans, Texas, Florida, etc. are being ravaged from this season of hurricanes. If our area was hit with an emergency or you had a disaster at home like a fire, flood or family emergency would you be prepared? The one thing we all learned from Hurricane Katrina that hit New Orleans the government, local government and the humane societies were not prepared to deal with the influx of pets throughout the evacuation process. During the summer of 2007 we witnessed many families who perished in the wild fires of California because they would not leave without their beloved four-legged family members. One family held out in their swimming pool as they watched their house go up in flames. We need a plan! Do you have one? Do you have an escape route out of your home? Do you have a place to house your pets in the event of an emergency? Do you have flashlights and batteries? Do you have a battery powered radio? Do you have a first aid kit for your pets? Do you have a list of emergency phone numbers? Is your cell phone charged? Do you have extra cash hidden somewhere in case of an emergency and have you made sure that your gas tank is full? Do you have bottled water? Do you have your pet’s medication? Sounds a bit melodra-

Pet Talk

IAN STUPP matic but in the event of an emergency you will appreciate the advanced preparation. More and more we are seeing power outages, harsh winters and hotter than normal summers. We need to be more proactive. FALL GROOMING Now is the time to make sure dog and cat coats are being readied for the winter months. Make sure that their undercoats are removed and that they are completely dematted. If the undercoats are matted well into the winter months your pet may end up naked right in the middle of a cold snap. Do your homework! Just a couple of hours a week of combing will help to remove the undercoat before it gets all tangled up. If you want to bath your pet in the cooler months, no problem, just make sure that they are dried completely, all the

shampoo has been rinsed away and please do not bath dogs or cats that are matted. Introducing water to a matted coat will only make the matting worse. If you’re not up to dematting your pet yourself then speak to a professional pet groomer. Flea prevention is not necessary at this time of year unless we get an Indian summer that will be hot and humid. In that case one more month of prevention would be recommended. If you find that you have fleas at this time of year than it is more likely that your pet was in contact with another flea infected pet or you had fleas over the summer and did not effectively remove them from your home.

Best Start survey helps develop local programs for children The County of Renfrew Best Start Network is committed to providing parents with easier access to and understanding of children’s services across the County. Since August 2005, agencies serving children ages 0 to 6 in Renfrew County have formed the Best Start Network. Their focus has been on development of creating a better system of information and access to services for children throughout the County of Renfrew. In an effort to help parents better understand the ages and stages of children, the Best Start Network has created a brochure that will contain the Nipissing District Developmental Screen and contact information on services available for children in the area in which they live. The Nipissing is an easy tool for parents and caregivers to use and has been

made available for free to all residents in Ontario through the provincial Best Start initiative. The tool is designed to help parents recognize areas of concern with their child’s development in a simple format. The initial stage of distribution will occur this month as all junior and senior kindergarten students in the four school boards throughout the county will be bringing home a brochure. In October the brochure will be available along with a Nipissing for ages 18 months to all families throughout the County of Renfrew in areas where families frequent (pharmacies, libraries, schools, day cares). Parents can access the Nipissing District Developmental Screen on line at www.ndds.ca .

Paying yourself first principle ensures financial goals are met rized contribution (PAC) plans for both Registered Retirement Savings Plans (RRSPs) and non-registered investments. Money is automatically deducted from your banking account and transferred into common stocks, mutual funds or other investments. PAC plans let you transfer funds at a frequency you choose – typically weekly, bi-weekly, monthly or quarterly.

By MARLENE McROBERTS Edward Jones

Are you falling behind on your retirement planning or other financial goals? The solution to the problem may be simpler than you think. It’s possible to increase savings and investments just by ensuring that you set aside money before it’s used for other purposes. This tech-

nique, often called “paying yourself first,” is a simple and painless way to boost savings. Paying yourself first means committing a portion of your regular paycheque to savings before you meet other financial obligations. Most financial institutions offer preautho-

However, some plans may offer limited options. Keep in mind that a systematic investment plan does not assure a profit and does not protect against loss in declining markets. This type involves continuous investment in securities, regardless of their fluctuating price levels. You can also move cash

into a holding account and later allocate it to individual investments. In some cases, you can even invest regularly through workplace payroll deductions that shift money into a group RRSP, company stock purchase plan or other vehicle. You’ll discover that regularly putting money

Page 34 - The Arnprior Weekender - September 19, 2008 FINANCIAL FOCUS From Page 34 Of course, if you don’t have the money to pay yourself first, you’ll have to find it. With a little financial repositioning you can strike a happy balance between today’s needs and tomorrow’s goals. First, figure out how much you

can afford to regularly invest. The best way to do that is through a budget that lists your monthly income and expenses. By subtracting your expenses from your income, you’ll see how much you have left over for savings. But don’t stop there. Take a second look. Where can you cut down on

expenses to divert more to savings and investments? Almost everybody can make changes to free up cashfor example, by cutting down on restaurant meals or paying off debt quickly. Once you’ve figured out a way to pay yourself first, stick with it. Don’t skip payments or abandon your strategy.
