Fitness Depot: Dedicated to Your Fitness and Health by Brian Turner

As the old year ends and the new approaches, more than a few of us will take a look in the mirror and decide it’s time to shape up. Maybe we’ll join a gym, but many of us will look to purchase home exercise equipment as a more convenient, comfortable, and private alternative to fitness club membership. But where to turn? Which elliptical, treadmill, rower, or exercise bike to buy? It’s easy to get lost in the myriad of websites, media ads, and avalanches of flyers overflowing our mailboxes. It’s also very easy to choose the wrong piece of equipment, that no matter how often you use it or how well designed it is, won’t deliver the results you’re looking for. And of course there’s the risk of injury because you didn’t get the appropriate advice you needed before purchasing a piece of fitness equipment that your body or physical condition isn’t suited for. Fitness Depot has been providing solutions to all these problems and concerns for over 20 years in Ottawa and their long list of satisfied and physically fit clients provide strong testament to their customercentered way of doing business. First, all of the associates you’ll meet at either Fitness Depot location (499 Industrial Ave in the east or 255 Kanata Ave in the west) are experts on the products and accessories they offer. They have been specifically trained by North America’s major fitness equipment manufacturers and receive continual education and updates on new designs and features. They are all fulltime employees and were chosen because of their commitment to physical fitness and excellent customer service. Second, if you want to try any of Fitness Depot’s equipment or products before you buy, it’s as easy as riding a bike because they’re all set up in their comfortable and roomy facilities for demo purposes. There’s no guessing from looking at a picture on the box or at some video as to whether or not you’re choosing the right product. Fitness Depot’s staff also take the time to ask the right questions to make sure that what you buy is right for you and other members of your family who might use it, and for your home. There’s no use getting the perfect home gym system if it won’t fit in your family or exercise room. In fact in most cases the associate you first meet will be the one to guide you through choosing and purchasing the right equipment and accessories to accompanying the delivery truck to your home to ensure a done-right-the-first-time set-up and to make sure you’re completely comfortable with all the features and operations.

And since they’re a depot, they carry everything they offer in stock and can arrange most installations on a same-day basis. Why wait days or weeks when you want to start your new life now? Some us of will enter Fitness Depot for the first time after being gym or club members and will be pleasantly surprised to find the same reputable major brands that our fitness club uses. Fitness Depot’s equipment suppliers are very carefully chosen and only ship to specialty retailers. You don’t have to be a fitness veteran to recognize names like LifeFitness, Precor, or Octane just to name a few. And commercial gyms and clubs also purchase their equipment from Fitness Depot. So the same expert associates that local gyms rely on, are there to serve you as well. And they’re happy to handle special orders for those rare occasions when someone is looking for a hard to find item that isn’t normally stocked. More than a few of us have experienced (or know someone who has) the difficulty that can arise when a fitness machine requires service or repair. With purchases from some retailers, the only choice is to package it up and send it back. But Fitness Depot runs a complete service centre in Ottawa that’s as close as your computer mouse. And since they offer their own in-house extended service plans, affordable peace of mind comes along with professional technicians. Whether it’s a simple adjustment or minor repair, or part replacement, it’s all part of Fitness Depot’s A to Z white-glove customer service. For Ottawa’s truly largest selection of fitness equipment and gear at the guaranteed lowest prices, with service that’s as fit as a fiddle, there really is only one choice with two great locations: Fitness Depot. East end manager Paul Riley and west end’s Kevin DeForge and their very physical teams are on site and on track Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm, on Saturdays from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm, and on Sundays from noon to 5:00 pm. You can reach them by phone at 613-247-8888 (East) or 613-591-8988 (West). Their website at www.fitnessdepotottawa.com has full details and specs on everything they sell. Good quality home fitness equipment means a long term relationship that brings much more value than flashy offers on unknown brands. With Fitness Depot, nothing’s holding you back from a fit future.

EMC news – A fire that broke out at the Arnprior Shopping Centre late morning Friday, Dec. 28, has been deemed suspicious. The Arnprior Fire Department responded in the late morning to a call that there was a fire in a rear area of the Hart Store located in the mall. Mall workers and shoppers were evacuated into the wintry temperatures as members of the fire department extinguished the fire and investigated the cause. The Fire Marshal’s Office and the Ontario Provincial Police are also involved in the investigation. John Currie of Arnprior, who was shopping in the store, was the first to spot the fire. “It was back near the toy department where the wool is kept,” said Currie. “I shouted ‘Fire!’ and told everybody to get out,” he said. “I saw the flames first and there was quite a bit of smoke. Peter Mosseau (mall manager) grabbed one fire extinguisher and I grabbed another,” said Currie. While the men tried to put out the fire, the smoke thickened. “It seemed to go out a bit, but there was a lot of smoke so we had to get out,” he said. Currie did not see what was burning. “It seemed to be back where the wool was kept,” he said.

Scissons lost the house he owned next door to his Ken’s Kitchen in a Dec. 14 fire. In the background is one of the tenants, Lorraine Chambers, who escaped the fire in her pajamas.

EMC news – An acquaintance of Ken Scissons came up to him shortly after the fire that destroyed his house and left his seven tenants homeless, offered his condolences and shook his hand. After the White Lake man left, Scissons opened his hand to find a $100 bill. That’s just one example of the support offered by the community in the wake of the Dec. 14 fire on McGonigal Street in Arnprior. “People are so good,” said a grateful Scissons. The long-time Arnprior resident who turned 85 Jan. 1 dropped by the Legion Dec. 23 to accept close to $4,500 to help his tenants and

himself recover from the blaze. The Arnprior Sears outlet had been collecting donations for nine days and owner John Purdon presented Scissons with eight envelopes of $415 each, one for him and seven for the tenants. About $1,000 was collected on the weekend following the fire, with Purdon matching that amount. Another $1,320 had been donated by the time Dec. 23 rolled around. Purdon noted there was almost no change in the donation box. The contributions were mostly $10, $20, $50 and even $100 bills, he said, noting it speaks to the community’s generosity and the regard in which Scissons is held in town.

From all of us at The Arnprior Shopping Centre we would like to wish you a

Tenants survive house fire but most belongings destroyed Continued from front

Also on hand at the Arnprior Legion were Sophia and Nick Xidous from Steve and Dennis Restaurant. About $125 was collected at the downtown Arnprior restaurant and the Xidous family added $1,000 of their own money. “And you’re my opposition,â€? joked Scissons, who ran Ken’s Kitchen until recently. As well, the restaurant provided food and vouchers for the ďŹ re victims, much of it from their own pocket after confusion over what the Red Cross was providing. Several other businesses in town collected donations for the ďŹ re victims and the Arnprior District Memorial Hospital Auxiliary’s Opportunity Shop provided them items for free. Scissons said many people have helped. For example when he tried to buy $10 of gas at Fraser’s Towing, Jim Fraser told him to â€œďŹ ll ‘er up ‌ you’re not paying. The gas is on me.â€? Scissons, whose heart troubles forced him to close Ken’s Kitchen a few months ago, has had a tough 2012. His brother is seriously ill; his son, Robert, died last month; and his daughter, Sheila, one of the tenants, lost her 14-year-old dog in the ďŹ re along with most of her belongings, including $200 bequeathed from Robert with which she was going to buy Christmas presents.

guess I was in shock,â€? she said. Chambers lost all her belongings, other than her purse and the pajamas she was wearing. “It’s losing the mementoes ‌ the pictures of children that’s the hardest,â€? she said. All the tenants were in the same boat as very little was rescued, she noted. As well, at least two of the tenants suffered smoke inhalation. Scissons, who lives next door behind Ken’s Kitchen, said that while he had insurance on the house, he lost furniture and appliances in the ďŹ re. “I’m afraid I lost a lot of stuff.â€? Scissons ran Ken’s Kitchen for 25 years before retiring, then coming back into the business a couple of years ago. His ancestors came to the Corkery area in the 1830s and at one time his grandfather and father ran the Klondike Inn on March Road.

At the Arnprior Legion Dec. 23, Sophia and Nick Xidous of Steve and Dennis Restaurant present a grateful Ken Scissons with donations from themselves and their customers. The collection, one of several around town, was made to help victims of the Dec. 14 fire that destroyed the McGonigal Street home owned by Scissions, well-known as owner of Ken’s Kitchen restaurant.

 

Another tenant, Lorraine Chambers, is grateful for the donations, but is mostly just thankful to be alive. She said she was sleeping in her upstairs apartment when the ďŹ re broke out in the basement of the McGonigal Street home. “Linda (Burnett) saved my life,â€? she said. Burnett, a main oor tenant, noticed smoke coming up through her oor and sounded the alarm, ensuring Chambers and four others in the house at the time got out. Chambers said she started down the stairs in the house already ďŹ lling with smoke, but turned around to get her purse. “It wasn’t the money ‌ it was all my ID I wanted,â€? she explained. She ďŹ gured she had about 15 seconds to get out and by the time she got downstairs she could only see a couple of inches in front of her because of the thick smoke. Outside in her pajamas and bare feet in the snow, she was rescued by her hairdressers down the street at Clip and Snip Hair Design. They warmed her up with coffee and consoled her. “I

Council backs solar panel project on Goshen Road Sherry Haaima Sherry.haaima@metroland.com

EMC news - McNab-Braeside council has lent its support to proposed solar panels on Goshen Road. Johann Reichart and Andrea Reyers were at the Dec. 18 regular meeting looking for council’s support for the proposed project. The couple live on a farm on Usborne and recently purchased property at 434 Goshen Road, formerly the Robertson farm. “We’re looking right now at a solar project on this property,” said Reyers. “We found out there’s room on the grid so someone said ‘Just do it.’” Council’s resolution supporting the initiative adds to the eligible points needed to gain provincial approval of a project, explained the couple. The general proposal is for the panels to be erected on two sheds, which will measure about 250 feet by 60 or 80 feet each, said Reichart. The application is to have ThermoEnergy Buildings do the work. The design plan is still open, but it is expected the buildings will be used for hay and equipment storage. Mayor Mary Campbell confirmed there are no homes in the nearby area, thus no potential impacts to neighbours, but she reminded the couple they will require a

Johann Reichart and Andrea Reyers were at the Dec. 18 regular meeting looking for McNab-Braeside council’s support for a proposed solar panel project on Goshen Road. building permit should their ThermoEnergy application be successful. CORPORATE FARMING

Corporate farm policies are something municipalities, including McNab-Braeside, will have to keep in mind going into the future, said Mayor Mary Campbell. Having recently met with the owner of the former Sullivan farm, a man from Enbrun who plans to just farm the 400 to 500 acres and not take up residence on the property,

Campbell urged council to start thinking about the issue. “He’s just going to show up in spring and float his equipment in,” said Campbell, who added she has spoken to planning officials and leaders in the farming community about the issue. “This is an agricultural trend and it has serious ramifications.” Only 25 per cent of residential tax is paid on farmland, she said, but most farms have homes on them, so are otherwise contributing to the residential tax base.

That community involvement isn’t the same with absentee farmers. “It won’t be their tractor in the Santa Claus parades, it won’t be their wives cooking at the church suppers,” said Campbell. She wondered about a future policy requiring owners to have residences, if only as landlords. In the case of the man she recently met with and a building on that property, she said he’d rather raze the house than rent it.” Campbell said she thought West Carleton had a situation

where it did allow severances in interest of maintaining a number of residents and maintaining the tax base. Staff and council will need the advice of planners and will have to look at the precedents that have been set. “We need to decide how this influences us in future,” said Campbell. BACK TO COMMITTEE

Despite the fact fire chief Ken Walton appeared at the council meeting with a recommendation to award the tender

for refurbishment of one of the department’s trucks to the lowest bidder, Asphodel Fire Truck Ltd., the matter will go back to committee. While fire committee members councillors Bob Campbell and Aldene Styles originally supported putting out the tender, they’ve opted to have the matter go back to the committee for possible policy changes and reconsideration of specifications. When the item arose at the meeting, the mayor confirmed that despite the recommendation, the councillors were not supporting the award of the tender to Asphodel. Included in the discussion will be the standard life policy on assets. “Let’s have a common playing field to decide these things,” said the mayor. Styles said further review of some of the proposed refurbishment work is among the reasons for another look at the issue. “The fire chief can go back and look at it again and come back with another recommendation and pare it down a bit,” she suggested. CARNIVAL DATES

Two of McNab-Braeside’s annual winter carnival dates have been set. Braeside’s carnival is slated for Feb. 9, while White Lake’s is scheduled for Feb. 16.

Medal story comment clarified

EMC news - Following is a clarification regarding the Nov. 29 story on Jamie Robertson winning a Diamond Jubilee Medal. Robertson was awarded the medal in part, for his work on a major incident in support of Coast Guard Fleet Management. It should be noted that the case itself is still in the Federal Courts and in no way was the story intended to imply that a decision had been rendered.

Continued from front

The mall was expected to reopen Saturday with Hart remaining closed. High levels of carbon monoxide led to stores remaining closed for the rest of the day Friday. Because the fire began in a commodity shelving area where presumably there were no heaters or other devices located, it is being deemed suspicious. This is a case that underscores the importance of a sprinkler system, said Arnprior Fire Chief John Okum. “When crews arrived, the store was full of smoke,” said Okum. “The sprinkler system in Hart had been activated, which helped put out the fire.” Firefighters, who were faced with extensive smoke, worked to evacuate the mall and then extinguish the fire. However, at least one woman who was in the mall washroom at the time didn’t realize there was a fire and had to be alerted by her husband, who had to re-enter the mall to do so. Once everyone was out, the work of ridding the building of smoke began. “Members of the fire department immediately started to ventilate the building. They put fans in place to bring fresh air in and push the smoke out,” said Okum.

Metro employees had been instructed to tarp their entrance and did so, saving the store from potential smoke damage.

Volunteer firefighter turnout at the scene was on the low side, likely because of the holiday season, said Okum, who himself was on holidays but was in town and responded to the incident.

Tiffany McLaren, Mississippi Mills economic and cultural co-ordinator, and Bonnie Hawkins, the municipalityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recreation and culture departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s administrative assistant, light a single white candle for each victim at the memorial Dec. 20. so many years ago,â&#x20AC;? said Father Lindsay Harrison, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and we bless those who did not die but who carried the wounds â&#x20AC;Ś around their hearts throughout their lives.â&#x20AC;? As the tribute moved across the street to the Old Town Hall, the number of attendees swelled to 200, said Tiffany McLaren, the municipalityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economic and cultural coordinator. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The storytellers were great, everyone listened intently,â&#x20AC;? she continued, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and Johnny Spinks was a perfect fit for the event and the song.â&#x20AC;? MONUMENTâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S HISTORY

Fourteen years ago (in 1998) ideas were brewing to try â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in some way â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the train accident in Almonte, said Peter Moller. A committee was established in February 1999. The founding members were Cliff Bennett and Herb Pragnell. A short time later John Dunn, Al Gunn, Dawn Leduc, Winston MacIntosh, Marilyn Snedden and Merv Tosh joined them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It should be noted that John and Merv had a very personal interest in this endeavour as they were both actually on the train at the moment of impact,â&#x20AC;? said Moller. Unfortunately, Dunn, Gunn, Leduc, MacIntosh and Tosh died in recent years. Moller became involved later in the process to bring

Attention

it to fruition. Roz, his wife, joined him. Initially, for funding purposes, the committee hoped a monument could be built and specified as a millennium project. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Town support was obtained, including the provision of this site,â&#x20AC;? said Moller, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and fundraising (public and municipal) was undertaken.â&#x20AC;? There was a time that it appeared as though the project would not be realized â&#x20AC;&#x201C; all estimates exceeded the monies available, he continued. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ultimately, a proposal was received from Yolkowski Monuments in Cobden, through Kerry Monuments in Almonte, for a memorial that would be formed from the two halves of a large granite boulder,â&#x20AC;? said Moller, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and the cost was going to be within the budget.â&#x20AC;? The project was not completed by 2000; however, it was finished in time for a dedication ceremony on the 60th anniversary of the catastrophe (Dec. 27, 2002). â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was truly gratifying that all the participants in the project were present at that auspicious event,â&#x20AC;? said Moller. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I remember we all agreed we should try to hold another commemorative ceremony in 10 years.â&#x20AC;?

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Thirty-nine names were spoken in Almonte, Dec. 20 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the names of angels so desperately missed, and so deeply loved. Among the dead were two from Arnprior and 14, more than one-third, from Renfrew and area. Mississippi Mills Coun. Denzil Ferguson, Marilyn Snedden and Cliff Bennett identified the men, women and children who were killed as a result of the Almonte train accident on Dec. 27, 1942. A single white candle was lit for each victim. Villages and towns across the Ottawa Valley were devastated after a troop train slammed into the Canadian Pacific Railway evening special (No. 550) at Almonte. The wreck is considered one of the worst in Canadian rail history. The memorial tribute for the 70th anniversary of the crash took place at the corner of Mill and Bridge streets â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the location of the train wreck monument. More than 100 people attended, including several survivors. A reception followed at the Old Town Hall. The North Lanark Historical Society (NLHS) partnered with the Town of Mississippi Mills to organize the affair. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are here to remember the ones who died as well as thank the heroes,â&#x20AC;? said Ed Wilson, president of the NLHS. It is well documented that local residents came to the rescue of the survivors who were in need. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is very appropriate that this event is being held in the same year that the tracks, which carried those trains, are being removed,â&#x20AC;? said Wilson. The memorial tribute opened with the singing of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;O Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, led by Kelly Sloan. Mississippi Mills Mayor John Levi was â&#x20AC;&#x153;really pleased to see so many people in attendance to honour those who tragically lost their lives 70 years ago.â&#x20AC;? Speaking of the residents back in 1942 and how they rushed to the scene in the minutes following the crash to help, â&#x20AC;&#x153;It shows what the people of this town are made of,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We pray for those people who died on that terrible day,

Province promises locked-door policy for all elementary schools program provides funding to schools that need support to install devices that give staff more control over who enters the school. In the announcement, the government said it is committed “to working with its education partners to provide the resources they need to reasonably ensure a safe and positive learning environment for every student.” The government has provided funding to nearly 850 of Ontario’s 4,000 elementary schools for access device systems such as new locking doors, security cameras and buzzers.

Flu on rise, still time to get shot EMC news - With crowded malls and an increase in social activity during the holiday season resulting in the spread of the flu virus, Rexall Pharma Plus is encouraging Ontarians to get their flu shot and take preventative measures. The Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care has recently announced high flu activity across the province, including many cases in Eastern Ontario, especially in the urban areas. “With the rise of influenza rates across Ontario, it is even more important to protect yourself and your family from the flu and the flu shot is the best protection,” said Frank Scorpiniti, CEO of Rexall Pharma Plus. “Getting a flu shot for Ontarians is as easy as visiting any of our more than 250 Rexall Pharma Plus pharmacies in the province with no appointment needed. “We also recommend preventative measures especially as we tend to socialize more during the holiday season.” The Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care recently reported high flu activity in Ontario: • For the period Sept. 1 to Dec. 10, Ontario had 15 lab-confirmed cases of influenza last year and 729 reported cases this year. In the same time period last year, the province had no flu institutional outbreaks; this year there have been 49. • Seasonal influenza annually results in up to 1,000 hospitalizations and up to 1,600 deaths in Ontario. • Expert scientific studies show Ontario's Universal Influenza Immunization Program (UIIP) annually saves the health care system 30,000 visits to hospital emergency rooms and 200,000 visits to doctors’ offices. The number one preventative measure

against the flu is the flu shot, maintain Rexall Pharma Plus officials. The company also supports Public Health Agency of Canada's other simple steps to prevent the spread of the flu virus: • Wash your hands frequently with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds to help remove bacteria and viruses. Wash before and after eating, after you have been in a public place, after using the washroom, after coughing and sneezing, and after touching surfaces that may have been contaminated. An alcoholbased hand sanitizer is also effective in killing viruses. • Keep your hands away from your face. In most cases, the flu virus enters the body through the eyes, nose or mouth. • Cough and sneeze into your arm, not your hand. If you use a tissue, dispose of it as soon as possible and wash your hands. • Keep common surface areas clean and disinfected. Doorknobs, light switches, telephones, keyboards and other surfaces can become contaminated with all kinds of bacteria and viruses. Regular cleaning and disinfecting of these surfaces with regular household disinfectants can help. Viruses can live on hard surfaces for up to 48 hours. • If you get sick, stay home. If you think you have the flu, you should stay home until your symptoms are gone. If your symptoms get worse, call your health care provider. Rexall Pharma Plus and some other pharmacies are still offering flu shots at their stores, any time, with no appointment needed across Ontario. Flu shots in pharmacies are available to all Ontarians over the age of five years old.

That funding will be extended to all the province’s elementary schools. The province is also supporting retrofits that will make schools’ front doors visible from the main office. The Renfrew County public school board had already started experimenting with a locked door policy with some of its schools. Both Renfrew County school boards have also embraced programs that emphasize respect and inclusion for all students and deterrence to bullying. Several of the shooters in the U.S. school shootings have either been alienated or bullied at school. The local school boards, like all others in the province, have a protocol, set up in partnership with police, that requires every elementary and secondary school to have a lock-down plan in place. The plan is practised twice a year. “A locked-door policy will help strengthen the good work already being done in schools to

support the well-being of students,” said Education Minister Laurel Broten. “When parents send their kids off to school they are putting their trust in us, and we have to get it right,” said McGuinty, in announcing the new funding. “That’s why our government is committed to providing safe, welcoming places to learn for all our kids,” he added. “It’s up to us to take all reasonable steps available to us to protect our kids. Locking school doors is a reasonable step.” In an official statement right after the Newtown shootings, McGuinty suggested that at Ontario elementary schools all entrances are kept locked during the school day to prevent entry from anyone who does not have authorization from walking through their doors. While that’s not the case at all schools, the government is moving toward making it happen by the end of this school year.

EMC news – In the wake of the massacre of 20 kindergarten and Grade 1 students in Newtown, Connecticut, the provincial government has promised renewed funding to allow elementary schools across the province to implement a locked-door policy. The extra money is aimed at ensuring all schools will be able to lock their doors while students are in class by this coming fall. Just prior to Christmas, Premier Dalton McGuinty announced that the Safe Welcome Program would be reopened for applications. The

OPINION EDITORIAL

Happy New Year: But now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to get serious

Okay, enough of the good cheer and troubles out of sight. And enough of the white Christmas already. Let it snow somewhere else for a while. We should have enough to keep the skiers and snowmobilers happy for the rest of the winter. Happy New Year. But now weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had our fun, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to roll up our sleeves and get back to work on the myriad of challenges that face us on so many levels. We can only hope that a year from now weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not lamenting about many of the same woes weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re dwelling on today. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sad way to end 2012 with the news dominated by the shootings of Kindergarten students and firefighters. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an unsettling way to end 2012 with many European countries facing financial ruin and the U.S. economy heading to a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;cliffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, with Canada in tow. The Middle East is still a powder keg, the gap between rich and poor keeps growing,

and climate change is continuing to make our weather more dangerous. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s difficult not to be pessimistic that these trends will continue in 2013. We are fortunate to live in a privileged part of the world, insulated to a degree from many of the worldly problems besetting others. But in a rapidly shrinking world, whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s afflicting others can often no longer be ignored any more. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not to the point of having armed guards in our schools yet, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sad reflection on our society that we have to seriously consider putting our elementaries into permanent lock-down. When it comes to international issues, the best we can hope is that common sense will prevail over extremism and countries can strike a balance between paying their debts and hopesapping austerity. That economic uncertainty makes it more important than ever that our national and pro-

vincial representatives be reminded and prodded to protect the ideals the majority of Canadians hold dear. It should be an interesting year politically with both the federal and provincial Liberals electing new leaders, with the latter leading almost certainly to an Ontario election. Locally, municipal councils are now more than half-way through their terms, so should be ready to make their marks on their communities with some major decisions and directionsetting. There are some difficult matters to settle and the public can play a crucial role in the decision-making if it speaks up, which unfortunately it most often doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Arnprior faces vital infrastructure, strategic plan, recreation, development, environmental and streetscape decisions, all with a new-look administration still learning what the town is all about. So when council and staff ask for

public guidance, as they are for the budget consultation meetings Jan. 15 and 16, take them up on it and share you insight on how you think the town should evolve. The same goes for McNab-Braeside residents. Their council could use all the help and encouragement it can get as it faces some extremely tough decisions this year. What will it do about the Arnprior recreation agreement, the quarry asphalt plant application, and a budget with less and less provincial funding? Those are just some of the many challenges councillors will be struggling with in the next couple of months. It might not make it easier for them if the public isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t shy about sharing their opinions, but at least they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be making important decisions in a vacuum. It will take hard work, sacrifice, inspired leadership and most of all public participation both on the world and home fronts if 2013 is going to be an improvement on 2012. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to get started.

Road safety deserves more than a grain of salt

To the Editor: The recent dose of winter weather has brought to light a serious lack of standards with the maintenance and snow removal of the Highway 17 corridor between Arnprior and Ottawa. Comparatively to previous winters, there has been one crucial difference; a lack of salt distribution. The condition of that stretch of the 17 was entirely substandard as a result. The final weekend before Christmas is always considered one of the busiest weekends of the year for motorists, and always the busiest of the winter. The lack of response by whoever is responsible for the maintenance of the highway must be addressed. It is important to note that the responsibility of the highway has changed hands. Previously the ministry would patrol the conditions of Highway 17 and call the plows out at first sight of snow or other hazardous weather. I know this because I am a former plow driver whom was responsible for plowing the stretch of Highway 17 between Calabogie Road and Galetta Side Road. This winter Highway 17 is no longer patrolled by the ministry trucks and they are not responsible for calling out the plows as a result of privatization. I now regularly commute between Arnprior and Ottawa where I work in the emergency services. I drove on Highway 17 several times last weekend and the lack of salt distribution was frustrating and created both life-threatening as well as hazardous conditions for motorists. There are only two plausible reasons why the salting standards have changed so drastically to previous winters. They are environmental concern and cost-savings. I list them as such because one will always precede the other and is usually related. In past years salt was distributed as needed on the highway in order to create

the safest driving conditions as possible for motorists travelling on the TransCanada Highway to and from the capital city of Canada. Presently, by using the green movement as a veil for cost-savings measures as the government does only when it is beneficial to their bottom line, our highways and life safety are being written off. I have heard the counter arguments to salt distribution and how we have been told that the road salt will affect our water table with contamination come the spring thaw, but I am just not buying that. What I have noticed, however, is a seriously decline of standards as a result of cost-saving measures when it comes to our roads. Take for instance something as simple as a snow fence. I remember growing up and seeing the orange fences spread all across the Ottawa Valley. It was a proactive approach to preventing drifts in the winter which simply hardly exist these days. Thankfully there are farmers whom have the presence of mind and sense of community safety to plant a tree line at the edge of their fields where they coincide with highways to prevent the drifting. The past winter storm was both intense and a major task for snow removal crews. However when it comes to the TransCanada Highway, the crews should be ready as they have been in the past and do all that is necessary to keep the highway operable and safe for all motorists. The past weekend (Dec. 22-23) the lack of salt distribution was entirely unacceptable, especially on the busiest weekends of the year where people are trying to make it their destinations to celebrate Christmas with family.

Line dancing to resume with winter classes in Arnprior them to Western-Swing, Latin-Rhythms, Jazz-Styling, Waltzes, Modern-Hits, and I even have a Gangnam-Style dance lined up for the winter session which starts in January,” she added, demonstrating two of the dance’s ‘signature-moves’ that went viral on You-Tube. When the Nick Smith Centre’s Line-dance program started in October, it attracted participants from the Arnprior area as well as various sections of the Valley, including from as far afield as Eganville. Chatterton noted that one of the aims of the group is to be involved in a positive way with the community. So, in consultation with group members, some line dances were chosen for a 40-minute performance at Arnprior District Memorial Hospital, which will take place in midJanuary. The group is looking forward to the opportunity of entertaining residents and their caregivers in this way, and the contact at the hospital is pleased that such a visit is being planned. The group of line-dancers have adopted the name the ‘Arnprior Hy-Liners’, and Chatterton confirms they will be available to dance throughout the year for any other local facilities who would like them pay a visit, or attend a particular venue or event. Networking with other line-dancing groups is one of the basic activities enjoyed by those participating in this dance-form, and on Dec. 13 the Arnprior Hy-Liners had a chance to greet, meet, eat, and, of course, dance with other groups, including some line-dancers who visited from Kanata’s Beaverbrook Community Centre. The event held in Pakenham’s Stewart Community

Centre was hosted by the Almonte and Pakenham branches of the Mississippi Hy-Liners. Chatterton was pleased to be able to organize this gathering of four groups for such an activity, and she anticipates that dancers from other groups, such as members of the classes from the Arnprior Quality Inn and the Horton Community Centre, will be available to attend the next ‘local-social’ in early March. It will be held either at the Nick Smith Centre in Arnprior, the Almonte Community Centre or the Pakenham Community Centre.

Line dance instructor Hyacinth Chatterton leads line dancers during a visit to the Almonte hospital recently. The line dancers will be enter taining at the Arnprior District Memorial Hospital on Jan. 14 as part of their community outreach program.

REGISTRATION

Registration is now open at the Nick Smith Centre for the winter session, scheduled to begin on Monday, Jan. 7 at 1:30 p.m. Registrations also begin at the Almonte Community Centre Jan. 9 and at the Stewart Community Centre in Pakenham Jan. 10. Chatterton points out that the first class of the new session will be free for anyone interested in learning more about this dance-form. She also mentions some of the aspects that members appreciate the most include there is no age-limit for participating, both genders are welcome, no partners are required, the routines offer both aerobic as well as weightbearing exercises, there is a wide variety of music, the program and sequencing are designed to welcome all levels of dancers, and, best of all, it’s a lot of fun participating in this type of activity. For more details regarding registration, call the Nick Smith Centre at 613-6237301 or Chatterton at 613623-0976.

EMC lifestyle - The first line dance program at the Nick Smith Centre in Arnprior concluded a successful fall session in mid-December and participants are looking forward to resuming a winter program this month. Weekly classes have been held since mid-October, and about 20 participants have attended on a regular basis each Monday from 1:30 to 3 p.m. Programs also continue at the Almonte Community Centre Wednesdays and the Stewart Community Centre in Pakenham Thursdays. There is an ongoing opportunity for visitors to ‘drop-in’ and see what this dance-form is like, and this invitation will be extended for the winter and spring sessions. Arnprior Parks and Recreation program supervisor Jay Koch was instrumental in setting up the new program, and has some supportive comments regarding its introduction. “I’m really pleased with the success of the afternoon linedancing class,” he said “It’s an ideal opportunity for everyone who is interested, to participate in an active, inclusive program that offers positive benefits of fitness, social interaction and team-work … not to mention the fun I’ve noticed participants having during their sessions.” For this first term in Arnprior, instructor Hyacinth Chatterton has been pleased to welcome an enthusiastic group of adults of both genders. “I find that these participants are creative and dedicated as well, and they have been very willing to learn dances that are choreographed to various genres of music,” she said. “For example, in addition to the Standard-Country, I have also introduced

NATURE

Exciting bird encounters on Boxing Day in Pakenham EMC lifestyle - The longawaited day finally arrived. It came with below-average temperatures and above-average snow cover. That day was, of course, the annual PakenhamArnprior Christmas Bird Count, which took place on Boxing Day. I have done this count for 47 consecutive years. The first remains vividly etched in my Michael Runtz mind. I was 12 years old and accompanied Bud Levy and his enNatureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Way tourage. Bud owned the Arnprior Guide (there were two Arnprior papers then, the Arnprior Chronicle being the other) and had advertised the count in his column: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Strictly for the Birdsâ&#x20AC;? written under the alias â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hawkeye.â&#x20AC;? The count participants met at the newspaperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office on John Street for an obligatory group photo before the 9 a.m. start. BARRED OWLS

MICHAEL RUNTZ

Above, this American Tree Sparrow was one of many seen on the bird count Right, this Great Gray Owl was the highlight of the bird count compilation at her home near Blakeney. Overall, the 30+ observers tallied 54 species, an average number for the count. Samanthaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Great Gray Owl was the bird of the count. Other highlights included 2 Red-bellied Woodpeckers (a record high count), 2 Golden Eagles (also a record high), a Belted Kingfisher, a Red-breasted Merganser, and 4 Hoary Redpolls, Record counts were also taken for Barred Owls (6), Northern Cardinals (51), and American Crows and Common Ravens (tallies are being reviewed for these two). Full results will be posted on the Macnamara Field Naturalistsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Club website (mfnc.ca). Next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s count is only 51 weeks away. The countdown has already begun!

In recent years by 9 oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;clock I would have been counting birds for at least three hours. This count was no exception. At 6:15 a.m. I met up with Ryan Zimmerling, Carl Leesti, and Samantha, Jessica and Donna Carter; it was Ryanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 23rd count but the first for the others. After unsuccessfully trying to get owls to call back to imitations, by first light we stood beside a marsh in the Nopiming Game Preserve near Galetta. Here I called for owls but this time Samantha, who is 15 years old, noticed a large bird fly into conifers across the marsh. A few minutes later we were admiring a Barred Owl perched in a pine. The lovely bird flew overhead before retreating into the forest for the day.We worked our way through the woods to Marshall Bay. The day was cold (-18° when we started) but without wind it was quite pleasant. Ryan and I were amazed how quiet the woods were compared to previous counts; chickadees were scarce and finches near absent. A couple of hours later we reached the creek that flows through the marsh where our walk began. Once again Samantha spotted a large bird. When I looked through binoculars I was amazed to see a Great Gray Owl, a bird I have never seen on any Christmas Bird Count. It was only the fifth time this northern bird was encountered on this Count. Later in Galetta we joined Brianna and Mikayla McAteer, young sisters who were recording the birds near their home. A CBC reporter met us to cover the bird count for the news; the clip can be viewed on the CBC website.

EMC Sports â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Mount Pakenham Ski Resort must be loving this snowy weather. The ski hill, which has been open since 1968, is a popular destination for many local skiers and out-of-towners. On a busy weekend it will see more than 500 people hit the slopes. Carrie McCallum has been the assistant ski school director at Mount Pakenham Ski Resort for the past nine years and is excited for the new ski season. McCallum thinks one of the reasons itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so popular is because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a family ski hill. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is something for everyone from the beginner to the terrain ski park,â&#x20AC;? said McCallum. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone knows everyone and the new people canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe how friendly everyone is in making sure they have a great day.â&#x20AC;? The hill opened for weekend runs on Dec. 1 and officially opened full-time on Dec. 14. With the recent snowfalls it currently has all 10 runs open, with a wide range of difficulty levels. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are so happy to have all of our runs open so early in the season,â&#x20AC;? said McCallum. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is some of the best skiing snow I can remember in December.â&#x20AC;? The mountain has a base elevation of 450 feet (137 meters) with a summit elevation of 730 feet (223 meters) and a vertical drop of 280 feet (85 meters). One new feature Mt. Pakenham is offering this year is an improved website, which is easy to navigate and has daily updates on ski conditions (www.mountpakenham.com). â&#x20AC;&#x153;We realized more of our customers use the site not only for information but to register online as well,â&#x20AC;? said McCallum. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted to bring it up to the current online standards.â&#x20AC;? The new site was launched in September and is also completely secure for online payments. Also new this year is an expanded learner training area and the carpet area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve made it half as big as it was,â&#x20AC;? said McCallum. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It means there is more trainer area for our lessons.â&#x20AC;? The ski school offers a number of different lesson formats including the Discover Ski or Snowboard program, which is designed for first-timers to make getting started easy and affordable as well as private lessons. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important for us to have suitable beginner trails because we are known for our learn-toski programs,â&#x20AC;? said McCallum. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have one of the best ski schools in the area. If someone wants to try it, we have everything they need for a perfect learn-to-ski day.â&#x20AC;? Last year, a new quad-chair lift was installed and is one of the newest lifts in the region. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It runs off Exhibition, which is one of our main runs,â&#x20AC;? said McCallum. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s called the Mika Express and was named after Joanne Cliffordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grand-daughter.â&#x20AC;? In total the ski hill has seven lifts: three surface lifts, two quad-chairs, a triple bar and a t-bar, with an uphill lift capacity of 8,000 per hour. If skiing is too much of a thrill for you, the tubing hill is also open. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We find because we are so close to Arnprior and Ottawa, they are able to do that if they are not a ski family,â&#x20AC;? said McCallum. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have found over time that people will come for tubing and then see the other programs we have to offer.â&#x20AC;? The tube park is located on a gentler slope, where you can walk up and slide down either alone or in a small group. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a cherry on top at the end of the day,â&#x20AC;? said McCallum. For the first time in a few years both the cross-country ski trails (35 kilometers) and snowshoeing trails (5 kilometers) are open at this time of year, another added bonus due to the recent snowfalls. The ski hill is open Sunday to Monday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and from Tuesday to Saturday from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m.

twice with Reid Murphy on a breakaway, and Jared Steege on a quick dart, giving the Packers 1-0 and 2-1 leads. Scott Conroy levelled the count twice for Renfrew, and then completed a hattrick when he scored the only goal of the second period on a Wolves power-play. Packers 3, Almonte 2 (OT) The Packers pulled a rabbit out of the hat twice in Almonte. Brayden Harvey tied the game 2-2 when he solved Almonte goalkeeper Dominic Plaschy with 1:06 left in regulation time. Michael McGrath then sent everyone home when he connected with 37 seconds showing on the clock in the fiveminute overtime. Packers leading goal-scorer Jared Steege opened the scoring with an unassisted marker, his 30th of the season, early in the second period to break the scoreless time. However, Nick Villeneuve with 20 seconds left in the second period, and Garrett Nichol 5:14 into the third, scored to land the Thunder a 2-1 lead. Lamothe was solid in the Arnprior triumph with 37 stops. Andrew Dekroon was also instrumental in helping Arnprior end its losing streak, as he assisted on both the tying and game-winning goals. The Packers picked up Dekroon from the Westport Rideaus in a mid-October trade.

EMC sports - The Arnprior Packers put to rest a five-game Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League losing skid with a pair of dramatic come-from-behind victories on the last weekend before Christmas. The Packers topped the Almonte Thunder 3-2 in overtime Dec. 22, and then came home for a 5-3 win over the visiting Renfrew Timberwolves the next night at the Nick Smith Centre. Arnprior was also slated to play the Valley Division-leading Perth Blue Wings Dec. 21 in Perth. That game was postponed because of a snow storm, and will be rescheduled. The wins allow Arnprior (13-14-and2) to pull into a second-place tie with Renfrew in the Valley Division standings, although the Timberwolves have played one less game. The Packers were scheduled to host Almonte in their final game of 2012 Friday, Dec. 28, after the newspaper’s early New Year’s deadlines. The Packers are in the midst of a sixgame homestand (unless the game in Perth is rescheduled for early January), so need to pile up some points to stay in a playoff position the tight Valley Division race. Coming to the Nick Smith Centre after Almonte are Stittsville this Friday, Jan. 4;

Shawville Sunday, Jan. 6; Perth Friday, Jan. 11; and Shawville again Sunday, Jan. 13. The Friday games begin at 8 p.m. and the Sunday ones at 7:30 p.m. The Packers then close out the month with games in Renfrew and Almonte. Their February schedule starts with two more away games, before then finish off the season with three straight home encounters, two against Renfrew. Packers 5, Renfrew 3 The Packers overcame a 3-2 deficit with three unanswered goals in the final stanza, despite only being credited with two shots. Adam Doelman pulled the Packers even when he snapped home a centering feed from John McLean on an Arnprior power-play at 4:48. Then, with 8:04 remaining, hard work culminated with the elusive Ethan Allard, coming back from an injury, skating out from the side of the net and stuffing the puck behind Renfrew netminder Nicolas Hodgins. Then, with the Wolves working on a power-play, goaltender Kyle Lamothe made a scintillating pad save off former Packer defender Ryan Eady. Seconds later, McLean broke into Renfrew territory and rifled home a shorthanded tally to give the Packers much welcomed insurance with 2:03 remaining. The teams traded opening-period goals

Gathering ice blocks always sent chills down Mary’s spine Mary Cook Mary Cook’s Memories

ICE BLOCKS FROM THE RIVER

Now the block was ready to be hauled out and put on the sleigh. This step was repeated until the sleigh was covered with blocks and they were piled three deep. Here, I took on a new fear. What if the sleigh was so weighted down, the horses, the sleigh, the cut blocks of ice, and I went to the bottom of the Bonnechere? By the time the last block was heaved onto the top row of ice, Father’s overalls were slick with frozen water. It was all he could do to climb onto the front of the sleigh and head the horses back to the ice house. As soon as we were on firm ground, I said my silent prayer of thanks that we

had been saved from a freezing death in the bottom of the Bonnechere. But Father’s work was far from over. Once back at the ice house, he had to unload the blocks, one at a time, each probably weighing in at 100 pounds, and place them in rows inside. Father could hardly walk upright with the weight of his frozen overalls. But he was not ready to change into dryer clothes yet. The horses had to be put in the barn, fed and bedded. Only then did he head for the house and the warmth of the kitchen. Mother had to strip him of the frozen outer layer, and the overalls were draped over the wood-box to melt and dry. The brothers would be pressed into service on Saturday, as they headed to the sawmill to bring back load after load of sawdust and cover the blocks in the ice house. The sawdust was free; the owner of the mill glad to be rid of it. And so, for another winter, and hopefully well over the summer, we would have ice for the ice box in the kitchen of that old log house. We considered ourselves very privileged indeed to have the big oak Barnett bought by grandfather who couldn’t understand how anyone could survive without an ice box. After that day on the Bonnechere, and after his supper, Father, completely spent of every ounce of energy, would go to his usual spot in the kitchen. He would settle into the rocking chair in front of the Findlay Oval, lift his stockinged feet onto a cushion on the oven door, and promptly fall asleep. The Ottawa Farm Journal, or the Family Herald and Weekly Star would have gradually slipped from his gnarled hands. I would watch his gentle breathing and I would be filled with such caring. And again I would say my prayers of grateful thanks that Father had survived another day of bringing in the ice from the Bonnechere.

R0011841124

EMC lifestyle – For reasons which escape me today, I was always home from school on the day Father went to the Bonnechere to bring ice in for the ice house. I think now, it was because Mother knew how very anxious I was when Father went to the river, and in my childish mind, I was sure I could save him from any disaster if I too was on the Bonnechere. Father had been watching the river for weeks. And then one day he went down with the auger and burrowed a hole to see how thick the ice was in the very centre of the river where the water was the deepest. It was ready. It was time to bring in the blocks of ice for the ice house. Through necessity, the ice house was always built on the north side of the barn. This protected it from the sun. It was a small, black building, not much bigger than the smoke house, with no windows, only a narrow door just wide enough to allow one body inside with the big iron ice-tongs. Now the day had arrived when Father would go to the river with the flat bottom sleigh and the team of horses, and the tools he needed for cutting out the ice. I was filled with both dread and admiration. I lived in fear that Father would slip into one of the holes from which he had taken a block of ice, and be lost forever. And at the same time, I marveled at how this single day would provide us with ice for the rest of the winter, and if we were lucky, until this same exercise was repeated the next year. If I was with him, I figured I could look after him and make sure he was safe. What I could do, I had no idea. But just being with him, I knew would keep him safe. I was bundled up like a mummy, and

Father wore a second pair of bib overalls over his winter clothes. His big cowhide mitts covered two pairs of wool mitts, a fur hat with the ear lugs down was tied securely under his chin, his pipe, as always hung loosely from his mouth, and we were ready for the trip across the back field, down the other side of the West Hill to the Bonnechere. The ice on the river cracked and snapped under the sleigh. I fervently prayed the horses, sleigh and Father and I wouldn’t end up on the bottom of the river. We came to the very centre of the Bonnechere. And then the long process began. Father, using the auger, burrowed four holes, forming a square into the ice. Then, with the needle-nosed saw, he cut a swath from one hole to the other three. This was when I was filled with dread, because I knew what was coming. Once the square was freed from the water, the block instantly flew from the water, sometimes rising above the very ice we stood on, splashing great gushes of water all around. Most of it landed right on Father.

She graduated from Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s University (B.A. Honours Psychology â&#x20AC;&#x2122;72) and McGill University (M.Sc., Speech and Language Pathology â&#x20AC;&#x2122;75). Universities can be fertile ground for more than the mind. It was at McGill where Lynn met her husband Mark. Her married life and career began in Montreal where she worked for the Lakeshore School Board. Her career continued in Ottawa where she worked for CHEO and the Ottawa Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Treatment Centre. Lynn and Mark moved to Arnprior in 1981, originally on a ďŹ ve year plan. However, this turned into a 32 year odyssey of love, laughter, community friendship and family memories. In her many years of work for both Renfrew County School Boards and the Arnprior Hospital, she became known as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;speech ladyâ&#x20AC;?. Music and art were always strong inďŹ&#x201A;uences in Lynnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life. Her contribution to childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s development went beyond the clinical settings. She was frequently involved in childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s musical education through local community organizations. Lynn was a proud Canadian, always thankful for the many gifts that life presented, and Grateful for the opportunity to travel this beautiful and diverse country. She had a strong conviction to make a contribution to society, wishing to leave the world a better place. All of those touched by her loving life will agree that she achieved this and more. We will all miss her tremendously. Visitations at The Boyce Funeral Home Chapel, Visitation and Reception Centre 138 Daniel Street N. Arnprior 613-623-2538 on Saturday December 29, 2012 from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. Funeral service will be conducted in Grace St Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s United Church, 269 John Street N., Arnprior on Sunday December 30, 2012 at 3:00 p.m. with a reception to follow in The Boyce Funeral Home Reception Centre.

In loving memory of our dear daughter Sherri, This day is remembered and quietly kept, No words are needed, We shall never forget, For those we love donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go away, They walk beside us everyday, Unseen and unheard But always near, So loved so missed And so very dear.

There are many ways to spread the joy of the Christmas season. Above, carollers express their Christmas spirit in song while stopping in front of homes on Bell Street in Arnprior on Sunday, Dec. 23. Left, a poster on the foyer wall at St. Joseph’s Catholic School in Arnprior explains how the Grade 7 class spread joy in Uganda, Africa through a $300 donation to World Vision. In keeping with the school’s theme this year of ‘Love Unconditionally’, the class collected loose change throughout November and used it to fund some unusual but very practical gifts for Ugandan youth. They included a goat, chickens, a fruit tree and medicine.
