EMC news – A major development is being planned for a choice 23.6-hectare (58-acre) piece of land in Arnprior stretching east from PJ’s Restaurant on Madawaska Boulevard. Council received the application Jan. 28 and scheduled a public meeting on the proposed rezoning for Monday, Feb. 25 at 6:30 p.m. in council chambers. It was one of two proposals presented to council, the other being plans for an eightunit apartment building at the long-vacated former Arnprior Bowler property at 89 John St. North (see Page 3). The Madawaska Boulevard property being developed by T. Anas Holdings Ltd. stretches from PJs to the town’s boundary with Ottawa. Peter Anas is asking for official plan and zoning amendments to be able to develop a mixed residential development and a shopping plaza. Sections of the property are currently zoned highway commercial aswell as industrial along the railway line, so changes are needed to allow for a shopping plaza and the homes. The developers are anticipating mostly single family homes (145) on the property with a few townhomes (11) and a 76-unit apartment building, so 600 to 650 people could live there.

EMC news – The merger of the Arnprior and Renfrew OPP detachments is now official, but residents of the towns shouldn’t see much if any difference in service. “The staff are still there (in the Arnprior detachment office),� said Renfrew community services officer Janice Sawbridge. “It is the same officers coming and going.� She said that the civilian staff have also been retained to run the detachment office. Arnprior council agreed in December that it

would be to the town’s benefit to keep the office open even if it cost town taxpayers more. The only major staffing change is that there is no longer a staff sergeant at the Arnprior office. The detachment’s last commander was Julie Cyr, who became the acting Staff Sergeant last May replacing Mike Forester. Cyr left the Arnprior detachment in December to take up another posting. Renfrew detachment commander Colin Slight assumes that duty over the Arnprior office as well.

EMC news - Now that it appears McNab-Braeside will get the user information they’ve been looking for, the township has agreed to appoint representatives to sit on a joint Arnprior/McNab-Braeside recreation committee. At the regular meeting of McNab-Braeside council on Feb. 5, township CAO Noreen Mellema said she had been corresponding with Arnprior CAO Michael Wildman who indicated the town has compiled all the information.

Buffer needed between homes, wetland Continued from front

However, the plan is still in the concept stage, council was told. The development would include six internal streets, a cul-de-sac and an almost five-acre parkland-stormwater management area. Planner Robin Smith said that the shopping plaza would cater to both visitors to the town and residents in the area. As the property is along an entranceway to the town, it’s likely a more appropriate use than industrial, she said. Mayor David Reid agreed, noting the proposed development would make a better impression on visitors than industrial development. Reeve Walter Stack pointed out the town still has plenty of industrial land open for development. Smith said the proposal fits in with provincial policies and the town does need more longterm housing. Reid noted that an environmental study and buffer will be required along provincially designated significant wetlands on the north side of the property. He also said he wanted it made clear to anyone considering buying homes along the railway line that while it is little used now, it’s possible it could be used more frequently in the future for a commuter or freight line.

Smith said there would be a noise-vibration study required with any development along the line. APARTMENT DOWNTOWN

Council approved the entering into of a site plan agreement with Maple Leaf Homes for the proposed eight-unit, three-storey John Street apartment just up the street from the Royal Bank. Smith said the plan meets one of the goals in the town’s new strategic plan, the promotion of a vital downtown core. She said the applicant has promised to consider the heritage district guidelines for the area. “It will be nice to see that lot developed,” said Stack. “It’s a good asset anytime you can infill in the downtown core,” said Reid. The proposal calls for vehicle access off John Street and 12 parking spaces in the rear. There will be one one-bedroom, three two-bedroom and four three-bedroom apartments with laundry and mechanical rooms in the lower level. The building will have a brick-stone façade, decorative lighting and a privacy fence, and will be set back about a metre from John Street to allow for flower boxes.

Part two of the Braeside quarry expansion review Tuesday John Carter

EMC news – Two down, five to go. McNab-Braeside council reviewed noise and air study reports and got started on the blasting report at the first of at least three sessions to scrutinize the application by the Miller Group to rezone its Braeside Quarry property.

Council will be back at it Tuesday, Feb. 12 with another three-hour session in township council chambers. The special Planning Advisory Committee (PAC) meeting will run from 3 to 6 p.m. prior to the group’s regular 7 p.m. session. Council is reviewing the reports submitted by Miller in seven areas along with the peer

Members to be chosen soon for joint recreation committee Continued from front

“He has advised me he’s taking a recommendation forward to his council recommending that information be forwarded to us,” said Mellema. Deputy Mayor Christine Blimkie, who along with Coun. Bob Campbell sits on the township’s recreation committee, said the McNabBraeside members would include herself, recreation director Geoff Patterson. As far as the three citizen members are concerned, she’d like to see one that represents empty nesters, an individual from a young couple without kids and a family with at least three children involved in programs at the Nick Smith Centre in Arnprior. She has individuals in mind. Blimkie said she will bring forward names at the township recreation committee meeting next week. Those people will then be approached to see if they’re willing to sit on the committee. By the Feb. 19 regular council meeting, the public appointees for McNab-Braeside should be announced. The committee will be composed of eight members: one council member from each

municipality to co-chair it and three citizen members from each municipality appointed by their respective communities and representing a cross-section of Nick Smith Centre user groups. A minimum of two-thirds majority (quorum is six), including a minimum of two yes votes from each municipality, would be needed for any recommendations to filter back to councils. Directors of parks and recreation from each municipality would provide support, but not have voting privileges. Meetings would be held at the Nick Smith Centre. Two meetings a month would be held for the first while, tapering off until a break in summer. The decision to participate should make Arnprior council happy. At its Jan. 28 meeting, Reeve Walter Stack asked for an update. “We’re waiting for a response,” said Mayor David Reid. “It appears as if they’re dragging their heels … we just have to wait,” he added. With files from John Carter

reviews it ordered done on them. The controversial application would see a permanent asphalt plant located in the quarry, a prospect that alarms may residents in the area. About 15 people showed up for the first review Jan. 15, although that included officials from Miller’s as well as four from the Ministry of Natural Resources. The MNR presence pleased council as it hopes the ministry will play a major role in the process and monitoring the plant, if it is approved. The PAC meetings are open to the interested citizens, but they can’t ask question during the proceedings. They can, however, submit questions and comments in writing to council through township CEO Noreen Mellema. Councillors had several questions during review of the noise and air emission studies. Planner Bruce Howarth is compiling the queries from council, as well as written questions from the public and will be consulting the study and peer review authors to get answers if he isn’t able to respond himself. Some of the answers could come as early as

next Tuesday’s meeting, but it is more likely they will be answered together in the final session before the official public meeting on the application. The applicant will also be hosting an open house this spring to explain its plans. Mellema said the date for the public meeting will be set after council has finished its review, possibly as early as the March 12 PAC meeting. However, council still has to review the traffic study before it gets to the more complicated hydro-geology studies. In the first session Mayor Mary Campbell questioned whether the setbacks in the reports were to neighbouring homes or to the property lines. Enjoyment of property includes outside as well as inside, she noted. A comment in the air study report regarding weather and atmospheric conditions in the area raised eyebrows when it suggested the Ottawa airport was only 20 kilometres from the quarry. Information about the application, including copies of the reports and peer reviews, are available on the township’s website and on CDs.

Town boosts most recreation fees, but not swimming Reeve Walter Stack noted that it appears swimming fees are not going rising. Parks and recreation director Glenn Arthur said that the recreation department was recommended that council not increase the swimming fees at the Nick Smith Centre this year. The rest are going up an average of three per cent, he added.



EMC news - Most recreation fees in Arnprior will go up about three per cent April 1. At its Jan. 28 meeting, town council passed the increase in fees and rental rates for usage of the Nick Smith Centre and other facilities such as the ball diamonds, marina and Robert Simpson Park gazebo.


Budget blitz at McNab-Braeside McNab-Braeside council began the long process of budget deliberations at a day-long session Feb. 4. Among the focus for the day were the public works and recreation budgets. The final budget is expected to come forward in April, said Mayor Mary Campbell. Above, council joins recreation director Geoff Patterson and public works director Ryan Frew in deliberations Monday morning.

Priorpalooza, town square committees get reprieve EMC news - A revamping of Arnprior council’s committee system has been put on hold until the Feb. 11 meeting to include a couple of council concerns expressed Jan. 28. The main one was to increase the number of public members from three or four to four or five. However, council decided against changing the number needed for a quorum. Meanwhile, council on a 4-2 vote agreed to let sub-committees guiding the Priorpalooza and town square efforts remain intact for the time being. Coun. Lynn Grinstead said the committee members have put a lot of effort into the two initiatives and should be allowed to see them through, at least until June 8 for Priorpalooza and October for the town square proposal.

OPP merger Continued from front

McNab-Braeside, Horton, Renfrew, Greater Madawaska and parts of Admaston-Bromley and Whitewater Region. Sawbridge said that Arnprior will have a representative on Community Policing Advisory Committee (CPAC), but not the Renfrew Police Services Board. In the Renfrew detachment area, Renfrew and Admaston-Bromley have police service boards as they have contracts with the OPP. The other municipalities – McNab-Braeside, Horton, Greater Madawaska and Whitewater – are already represented on CPAC, which helps the detachment set community priorities. Sawbridge said the newly integrated detachment will be pleased to work with Arnprior Community Policing if it resumes its activities. It will also be using OPP Auxiliary members in town, she added, noting several members of the Renfrew OPP Auxiliary live in the Arnprior area. Other benefits to Arnprior from the merger will be access to grants for different specialized services and a guaranteed level of service in officer hours per year.

However, well-known Arnprior officer Steve Linton has been appointed a community sergeant and will be a point person at the Arnprior office for anyone with questions or comments about policing in town. Linton will work week days and concentrate on administrative and supervisory duties. Sawbridge will provide media releases for both the Renfrew and Arnprior offices. Overall, the merger should result in efficiencies and lower overtime costs translating into annual savings of up to $350,000, claim the OPP. That was a major factor in Arnprior council’s decision to support the merger, as quickly rising police costs have been a major irritant for the town as well as all municipalities around the province.

Drought over, groundwater conservation still needed EMC news – Renfrew County’s drought is officially over. The Renfrew County Low Water Response Team (WRT) made the declaration after a meeting Jan. 25. At the Jan. 30 meeting of Renfrew County council, Admaston-Bromley Mayor Raye-Anne Briscoe confirmed that the drought, first declared on July 10, is finally over. However, the Water Response Team urges caution and ongoing awareness of just how “sensitive” the water supply can be to reduced levels of precipitation and extended dry and hot weather conditions. Team members met Jan. 25 to evaluate the most recent data available on precipitation (rain and snow) levels and surface water flow rates. The data revealed precipitation levels have recovered to above normal averages and that surface flow rates are within an historic average range. The data enabled the WRT to move the County of Renfrew out of a Level 1 Low Water Response condition.

recharge. County well drillers all agree it is imperative that there be significant snowfall this winter and a slow, extended spring thaw accompanied by frequent rain once the ground has thawed. The WRT is still active, despite the fact the area has moved out of a drought situation, and will continue to closely monitor the situation. Members realized that in the county there are very few precipitation and stream flow gauges from which they can obtain data, and no groundwater monitoring capability. A key project over the winter, working with the Ontario Government, is to obtain and plan for the installation of new gauges. Local municipalities and the County of Renfrew, in partnership with the Ministry of Natural Resources Pembroke District office, view this as imperative so that the WRT can more effectively monitor the water situation and be better prepared for low water conditions. To underscore just how se-

County residents, businesses and institutions relying on groundwater and well systems are strongly encouraged to continue to monitor their supply carefully and exercise water conservation. As the drought unfolded last year, it was those relying on groundwater systems that encountered the most problems. Well drillers were kept busy across the County extending wells to deeper aquifers. The expense to ensure reliable groundwater supply was a serious and unexpected burden to farmers, home owners and businesses. Hydro electric power production across the County was severely restricted due to the low water levels in all local rivers, including the Ottawa, imposing a serious financial impact on municipal and private power companies. During the winter months, with the ground frozen, groundwater has very little opportunity to recharge. The two recent major thaws accompanied by rainfall provided very little groundwater

New developments hint at promising future for Arnprior It’s encouraging to see that a couple of eyesores in the downtown Arnprior area are going to be cleaned up. There are plans to build an apartment building where the closed-up Arnprior Bowler sits near the Royal Bank on John Street. That building has been boarded up because of a fire for some time, so it’s a relief there are finally some concrete plans to re-develop the site. Over on Daniel Street, at the Atkinson corner, the old Crozier Fuels building is finally being taken down. That lot is trickier to beautify, as it’s a brownfield site needing plenty of remediation before it’s ready for re-development. However, at least the town, through tax incentives, has

encouraged the owner to clean up the prominent site, so close to the downtown and near the CN Trail. Hopefully, this trend will continue and certain other property-owners will follow suit if given a little encouragement by the town. It would certainly enhance the downtown streetscape effort. It’s also exciting to see a couple of different developments in the works in town. The affordable seniors housing project along the tracks is almost finished. And council has received a proposal for a mixed housing and shopping development along Madawaska Boulevard heading east out of town. While still in its concept stage, it could

provide a shot in the arm for the town. It would be pleasing to have that entrance to town be given the attention it deserves. However, the town should ensure there is a proper buffer along the property’s back end, just as it should ensure any development in the area of Gillies Grove should have adequate environmental safeguards. The Macnamara trails area is one of the town’s treasures, even though to many it is a hidden treasure. If the nature trails become better linked to the underdeveloped McLean Park waterfront leading to the Madawaska River, then connected to Robert Simpson Park and Gillies Grove, the town would have a marvelous attraction

along the historic Ottawa River for visitors from far and wide who want enjoy nature without disappearing into the wilderness. The trail along the Madawaska River tying Robert Simpson Park to the downtown would take on even more significance, as would the town square project and the Arnprior Library’s plans for its patio area. With all this potential, it’s no surprise there are moves to spruce up some long-neglected downtown lots. If the town can promote the right mix of nature and development, Arnprior will be able to turn the downtown into a place for exciting new projects, not a stagnant area where buildings are left vacant for far too long.


New face, but same old failed Liberal policies To the Editor: Kathleen Wynne’s election as Liberal leader and Premier-designate changes nothing in Ontario and in Renfrew County. Although I congratulate Ms. Wynne for winning her party’s leadership, she worries me because she completely endorses Dalton McGuinty’s failed agenda. Under Dalton McGuinty, the Liberals chose to give big corporations like banks and oil companies huge tax breaks while upping personal taxes, cutting the services we depend on, and selling off important provincial assets and services, like the disastrous ORNGE air ambulance privatization. They’re even going to sell off all our personal information when Service Ontario goes private. Then there’s the education crisis. I expect Ms. Wynne to wriggle out of this because teachers would rather be working with kids than upsetting parents, but the same problems remain. Teachers and all public service workers are being told to take the hit because the Liberals won’t tax corporations and wealthy people fairly. And she refuses to denounce the anti-democratic Bill 115 that allowed them to impose contracts. Dalton McGuinty’s legacy in rural Ontario

won’t change a bit with Ms. Wynne. The Liberals have ruined green energy for years to come by bringing in giant multinational corporations instead of harnessing the goodwill and resources of landowners and municipalities. Everyone knows we need to move to green energy, and many green energy projects should be in rural Ontario, but the McGuinty Liberals took a good idea, threw enormous money at it, and poisoned the well for future development. The Endangered Species Act they passed with no stakeholder consultation has put development on hold and threatened peoples’ livelihoods across rural Ontario. It didn’t have to be this way. They could have enlisted the goodwill and stewardship of local people in protecting species had they developed a plan with the help of communities. Now, they’ve totally alienated rural Ontarians. Kathleen Wynne may represent a refreshingly different face from Dalton McGuinty’s, but it’s the same old Liberals with the same old policies that are hurting working people in Ontario, especially rural Ontario.

New federal legislation causing Canadian ‘waterways’ to vanish EMC lifestyle - Many people are asking what is behind the Harper government’s replacement of the Navigable Waters Protection Act by the Navigation Protection Act in the recent “omnibus� budget bill, and how it will affect our use of lakes and rivers in Canada. Parliament passed the Act in 1882 at the end of Sir John A. MacDonald’s third term as prime minister. For 130 years the federal government used the Act to regulate construction of bridges, dams or other structures that might interfere with movement of watercraft. Neither the original Act nor subsequent amended versions precisely defined a “navigable waterway.� However, in 1906, the Supreme Court of Canada held that that any water that was navigable and could float a canoe – or a log - was within the Act’s scope. This gave federal protection to the Ottawa Valley log drives that were so important to Canada’s early commercial development and international trade. The Ontario Superior Court of Justice summarized these previous legal rulings in 2011. A waterway must be capable in its natural state of being tra-

versed by watercraft such as a canoe. The waterway could be used to float logs, log-rafts and booms. The waterway could be navigable over part of its course and not navigable over other parts. And it need not be actively used for navigation as long as it had the potential to be so used. The new Act makes radical changes. It lists 97 lakes and 62 rivers (or parts thereof) that will receive federal oversight: a vanishingly small fraction of Canada’s millions of lakes and tens of thousands of rivers. NEW CRITERIA

Transport Canada describes three criteria used to develop the new list: the waterway must support heavy commercial and/or recreational navigation, only actively used portions can be listed, and it should be accessible by ports and marinas in proximity to heavily populated areas. Exactly how many lakes and rivers were dropped from federal protection? A Natural Resources Canada website formerly said that more than 30,000 lakes greater than three square kilometers in area are found in Canada. However, “To better serve Canadians, the Atlas of Canada recently re-organized its website ‌



As a result, many pages have been removed ‌� The few remaining federally protected waterways include the Petawawa River from the Barron River to the Ottawa River. One wonders, did Transport Canada officials bring canoes to Petawawa and shoot the rapids to prove this can be done? The Ottawa River itself is the only other Renfrew County waterway listed. In practical terms, this means that the dam currently proposed for the Petawawa will receive federal scrutiny, but the one proposed for the Bonnechere River will not. Other Ontario waterways that made the list include Kemptville Creek, Big Duck Pond, Pollywog Lake, Lovesick Lake, and Dow’s Lake in Ottawa, a small widening of the Rideau Canal. HUNTERS CONCERNED

A November 2012 backgrounder from the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters lists five major concerns with the new Act. Notably, the Act fails to acknowledge “the importance of navigation to recreational fishing and hunting and devalues the overall socioeconomic importance of the recreational fish-







According to CBC News, the Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities led the 10-year effort to replace the Act. Members were fed up with the red tape imposed by Transport Canada in replacing old bridges with culverts. Their lobbying efforts continued even after the government brought in amendments in 2009 that excluded such “minor works.� The Act now applies to only three Saskatchewan waterways and the rural municipalities are “ecstatic.� But not all analysts agree that this is about eliminating what Transport Canada refers to as “pointless assessments.� Elizabeth May, leader of the Green Party of Canada, characterizes the Act as Canada’s “first environmental law�: one that created “Canadians’

Women’s Institutes Tweedsmuir books to be in spotlight at Archives AGM


What is a Tweedsmuir Community History Collection? It provides the history of a community, assembled by the local Women’s Institute Branch. Commonly known as

‘Tweedsmuirs’, the collection can vary in form from a simple scrapbook of newspaper clippings to a series of bound volumes. They are valued by family researchers, historians, and students of all ages. Tweedsmuirs are comprised of a variety of information and usually include such items as: • record of pioneers and farm histories; • historical growth and development of local community; • record of buildings, schools, industries, churches, and local government; • record of war veterans and other people of interest (artists, centurions, etc.); • WI branch history and autobiographies of members; • Photographs and documents portraying things of interest and special community events. History-gathering started as early as the mid1920s. By the mid-1930s, Lady Tweedsmuir, wife of the Governor General of Canada, suggested that WI branches keep local history books as the members in England did, where she had been a devoted member. A campaign was launched

in 1945 to encourage every WI branch in Ontario to prepare a volume of history about their community for the 50th anniversary celebrations of the Women’s Institute movement in 1947. A recently widowed Lady Tweedsmuir was delighted to approve that these histories should be named after her late husband, and so originated the Tweedsmuirs. The Tweedsmuir Collections are a very significant resource on the history of Ontario. In 1950, the Honourable Vincent Massey included Tweedsmuir histories as part of the Royal Commission on National Development in the Arts, Letters and Sciences. In 1962, the Canadian Historical Association, Canada’s national organization of professional historians, awarded a certificate of merit to the Women’s Institute for its efforts in preserving local history. And in 2004, the WI Tweedsmuir co-ordinators were awarded the Scadding Award of Excellence by the Ontario Historical Society. The award recognizes a historical or heritage group “which has made an outstanding contribution to the field of history.”

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A young Braeside lad is in an exclusive club, being one of 150 nominees from across the province nominated for the 2012 Ontario Junior Citizen of the Year Awards. Charlie Flowers, a Grade 2 student at A.J. Charbonneau Public School, was nominated for his highly successful Cans 4 Cats initiative.

Charlie explains how Cans 4 Cats works. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I collect pop cans, beer cans, etc. My mom takes them to a recycle business (Edâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Salvage), which gives her cash. I then take the money and buy cat food for the Arnprior Humane Society. They have lots of cats there that need food.â&#x20AC;? He welcomes donations of cans and bottles, which can be dropped off at either the Humane Society shelter or at Jimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Auto Glass on William Street. He also picks up empties

â&#x20AC;&#x201C; call him or his mother at 613-622-5542 or his fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s business at 613-623-6499. Cans 4 Cats shows no signs of slowing down. Charlie has the Arnprior hospital interested in getting involved as well as some other businesses that have pop machines on site. In less than a year, Charlie has raised well over $1,500 from collecting cans. His nomination paper notes that his actions have been a â&#x20AC;&#x153;win-win for the town â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the humane society is getting relief (cat food) and town residents are being educated (on environmental issues).â&#x20AC;? Humane society officials, when addressing town council at a recent budget input meeting, pointed to Cans 4 Cats as a wonderful example of community support for the shelter. Cans 4 Cats also promotes the benefits of recycling cans instead of disposing them in the landfill. Valley Heritage Radio DJ Carol Ann Flannery supported the nomination, saying Charlie is encouraging others to support the animal shelter and protect the environment. She praised his problemsolving skills, intelligence and maturity well beyond his years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These traits, combined with a strong sense of compassion, are key leadership qualities that should be recognized,â&#x20AC;? she said. While Charlie isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t one finalists for the Ontario-wide award, it is obvious there was strong competition to be in the top 12. Last week, 12 individuals were chosen to attend a special ceremony officiated by David C. Onley, Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, in Toronto on March 8. In announcing the finalists, the OCNA pointed out that many youth are dedicating their time and energy to making a difference within their communities and around the world.

When you upgrade your insulation in your attic to R50 blown insulation, you can save up to 27% on your heating and cooling bill. With new government minimums, R50 (approx 18â&#x20AC;? of blown insulation) is now code. Most newer builds have between R34-R40, with some older homes having as little as R20 in the attic.

Car’s rear window shattered on Madawaska Boulevard EMC news – OPP officers from the newly merged Arnprior and Renfrew OPP detachments are investigating a report that the rear window of a vehicle was shot out while it was travelling on Madawaska Boulevard in Arnprior. The incident took place at about 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 31. Police report a black sports car with two males was travelling in the same direction as the victim. The complainant said the passenger had his arm out the window when he heard two bangs and the rear window of his vehicle shattered. The black sports car then sped off eastbound on Madawaska Boulevard. Although it sounded like a gun shot, no projectile was recovered, and no weapon was seen.

Never too late to prepare for winter driving conditions one know where you are going and when you plan to arrive. • Buckle up! Wearing a seatbelt is the most effective way to reduce your risk of injury in a motor vehicle collision. • Check weather and travel conditions before heading out. Don’t take chances if the weather is bad. Allow yourself extra time for travel, or wait until conditions improve. • Road conditions are available by calling 511 or online at 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Be careful if you have to get out of your vehicle when on the shoulder of a busy road. If possible, use the door away from traffic and make sure you are visible to other drivers.

EMC news – If you didn’t do a good job getting your vehicle ready for winter driving, it’s not too late, says the OPP. You may be dealing with winter driving conditions into April, so take some time now and prepare for winter driving for the next several weeks. Be prepared: • Check the condition of your tires, and if you don’t have winter tires consider installing them. They offer better traction, braking and handling in slippery and snowy conditions. • Carry a winter survival kit in your vehicle that includes items such as a flashlight, warm blankets, extra clothing, winter boots, and non-perishable energy foods. A candle and matches generate some heat while waiting for help if you become stranded. • Keep your vehicle’s fuel tank full. The extra volume can help reduce moisture problems in your fuel system and it adds extra weight to your vehicle. A topped-up gas tank will also be an asset if you become stranded. • Clear all snow and ice completely off windows, side view mirrors, headlights, taillights and licence plates. If you are travelling a long distance, plan your route ahead of time. Let some-


OPP promote awareness of Internet safety EMC news – Children and youth are increasingly living out a large proportion of their daily lives online — whether using technology to communicate with friends, seek entertainment, or learn and broaden their knowledge about the world around them. However, just like the offline world, parents and teachers need to be fully aware of the risks children and youth may encounter while using the Internet. This is why on Feb. 5, International Safer Internet Day, OPP detachments,

including those in Arnprior and Renfrew, issued a news release to promote awareness of the comprehensive Internet safety resources and tools available to families through the Canadian Centre for Child Protection. The tools are there to help parents (and teachers) make sense of the challenges with raising children and youth in an ever-changing technological world, notes the OPP. “In this ever-changing technological world, children and youth are able to

connect to the Internet with relative ease, exposing them to risks and harms that can be difficult to keep up with,” says Inspector Scott Naylor, manager of the OPP Child Sexual Exploitation Unit. “The protection of children online is all of our responsibility,” he added. “The Canadian Centre for Child Protection resources provides parents, educators and communities with current information about children’s online activities and what we can do to make the Internet a safer place for our children and youth.”

Big return for the Braeside Cup Sherry Haaima

EMC sports – The once famous Braeside Cup is making a return in 2013. Organizer Dan LeBlanc is looking for eight men’s teams to participate in the revamped hockey challenge that for years had been a fun event for the whole community. “We haven’t had it in the last few years, but it had been running for 30 some years before that,” said LeBlanc. “It’s always a good time. For some guys it’s their first time playing outdoors. The rink at the RA Centre in the village will set the scene for the event on Saturday, Feb. 16. And thanks to generous sponsors, there is no shortage of prizes and merchandise for participants. “I go out and get donations from the community,” said LeBlanc. “They’re great for giving donations.” The tournament will feature an A and B division and prizes will be awarded for player of the game, most valuable player and other honours for every game. “There are lots of good prizes,” said LeBlanc. “It makes it exciting for everyone who shows up to get something.” Cost to participate is $250 per team and proceeds are going towards new boards at the rink. LeBlanc will also be asking for donations of non-perishable foods for the Arnprior and District Food Bank. The ice has been great so far this year, said LeBlanc. “It’s in really good shape right now,” he said. It is expected the finals will be played at 2 p.m. for B division and 3 p.m. for the A division.

Packers end string of road games on winning note JOHN CARTER

EMC sports – The Arnprior Packers unleashed a balanced scoring attack for a change as they ended a three-game losing streak with a 5-2 win over Stittsville Sunday. Five different players scored in the pre-Super Bowl Junior B hockey tilt in Stittsville. It marked the end of

four straight road games for the Packers, who return to the friendly confines of the Nick Smith Centre this Friday, Feb. 8 to host a return match against the Royals at 8 p.m. An Arnprior win will greatly enhance the team’s chances to make the post-season, while a Stittsville loss and an Almonte win over Shawville would pull the Thunder into a tie with the Royals for the last

Eric Malloy, Mark Shanks, Luciano Pietrantonio, Derrin Lehoux and Ethan Allard scored for the Packers, who had period leads of 2-1 and 4-1. Allard and Shanks also added assists for Arnprior and Alex Bourassa-Barron and Brock Burge had two helpers each. Shanks has six goals and nine points in nine games since joining the Packers. Arnprior was outshot 4940, but Packer goalie Kyle Lamothe stopped all but a first-period power-play goal and a marker with less than two minutes left in the game. In two weekend games, the veteran goalie made 104 stops. The Packers had four power-plays, but were unable to capitalize. However, they

outscored Stittsville 5-1 during 5-on-5 play. SHAWVILLE 2 ARNPRIOR 1

The Packers continued to have trouble with Valley Division cellar-dweller Shawville, losing 2-1 last Friday in Quebec. It was Arnprior’s second straight one-goal defeat. Arnprior was outshot 5928, but Lamothe kept his team in the game with 57 saves. Allard, on a set-up from Lehoux, gave Arnprior a 1-0 lead at 7:11 of the first stanza. However, Shawville scored the equalizer at 5:37 of the second period and struck for the winner at 2:14 of the third off the stick of Jake McDonald. Two fights broke out just over a minute apart mid-way through the second period as Packer Mark Shanks and Pontiac Brett Nugent squared off, as did Arnprior’s Ryan Patrick and Shawville’s Matthew Brooks-Fournier. Packer Patter: The EJHL’s Metro-Valley Division is not holding all-star game this year, but there will be a prospects game and awards ceremony. The game will be held this Saturday, Feb. 9 at 3:30 p.m.

at the Old Stittsville Arena. The awards ceremony will follow at 6:30 p.m. in the arena’s hall. Metro-Valley Division president Ron McRostie, local councillor Shad Qadri and Stittsville sporting legend Johnny Leroux will take part in the ceremonial puck drop. The Metro Division Gatineau Mustangs played the Canadian national women’s hockey team Jan. 23 in Buckingham. The Mustangs broke a 2-2 deadlock late in the second period and went on to win 6-2. After weekend action, Jared Steege (35-27) and Derrin Lehoux (27-35) lead the Packers in points with 62. The pair are tied with former Packer Taylor Collins for fourth place in league scoring. Collins and another former Packer Mitch Parker lead the Metro Division-leading Ottawa Junior Canadians with 28 goals each. Collins tops the team with 62 points in only 29 games. Perth’s Brett Madigan is the league’s runaway scoring leader, with his 40 goals and 53 points 25 points ahead of Gatineau’s Dominik Robinson.

Arnprior IP kids meet junior hockey league heroes Peter Clark

It was a thrill for kids in the Arnprior Minor Hockey Association Initiation (IP) Program Saturday as they came face-to-face with the players of the Ontario Hockey League’s Ottawa 67’s. The 67’s came to town armed with a pair of free tickets to the first 100 people who attended Saturday’s event at the Nick Smith Centre. The two-hour session included a 67’s practice from 11 a.m. to noon, followed

by a skate with the AMHA’s youngest players from noon to 1 p.m. The players also signed autographs in the community hall. “Glenn (Arthur) was a huge help in getting us up here,” said 67’s manager of partnerships Calvin Amell, commenting on the efforts of Arnprior’s recreation director. “We are happy to be up here.” The event was a joint venture between the Ottawa junior hockey club and Arn-

ing force in getting news of the event out to minor hockey and the Arnprior community. It’s been a rough season for the 67s. However, they still have several top-notch play-

ers, including Sean Monahan, the high-scoring centre who is projected to be among the top picks in this year’s National Hockey League amateur draft.

Left, Initiation players Jordan Gilmour, Cameron Menard, Liam Joseph and Kian Yamada smile as Brent McQueen and Matt Baker drop the puck during the kickoff games for the Jon Brunette Memorial Fun Day. Both McQueen and Baker were close friends with Brunette, who passed away after a snowmobile accident in 2003.

Starting off their hockey careers with fun

EMC sports – Many hockey players have the first trophy for their case, and their first tournament under their belts, after the Jon Brunette Memorial Fun Day welcomed eight teams to the W. Erskine Johnston Arena in Carp on Feb. 2. “It’s the start of their career, and the start of the trophy case,” said Andy von Zuben, director of initiation level hockey with the West Carleton Minor Hockey Association. “It’s their inspiration to keep playing.” The five to seven year old players all received a trophy, paid for by the Jon Brunette Memorial Fund at the end of the fun day tournament. The fund was created after Brunette passed away after a snowmobile accident in 2003. He played eight years with the WCMHA before playing for the Ottawa Valley Titans and the Arnprior Packers Jr. B team. His mother, Valerie, works to administer the funds raised through the annual summer golf tournament, organized by herself and Jon’s friend Brent McQueen. The funds go towards the initiation fun day and sponsoring an Ottawa Valley Titans AAA minor midget player from West Carleton, currently Colby Cochrane. It was the ninth year that

the fun day has run, and even though Jon started playing organized hockey after the initiation level, Valerie said that he would have loved to participate in the tournament as child. “I think it’s just a great program, they teach them all the basics,” she said. “We wanted to do something positive to come out of (Jon’s death).” Jon’s friends, McQueen and Matt Baker, said that Jon would likely have been coaching young players alongside them today, and would enjoy seeing so many young players enjoying the game that was his passion. And the players were certainly having a good time, as each of the eight teams played two games on half the rink. Liam Joseph, of the Stittsville Silver Streak, said he likes playing in tournaments “because you get to play more games,” before the whistle blew and adding, “Oh, I’ve got to go and play now.” Cameron Menard, 7, a West Carleton Warriors player, said he liked to get to play different teams during the fun day of hockey. Three West Carleton Warriors teams played in the tournament, along with the Richmond/Munster HD Bruins, the Kanata Stormtroopers, Stittsville Silver Streak, the Almonte/Pakenham Thunder

Major Mytes and the Nepean Flames. This year, the fund also provided hockey equipment to the late Erin Vance’s twins, who are playing hockey with the WCHMA this year. Valerie Brunette said that their fees had been covered, so the fund donated $500 to help with getting the boys set up with skates and other equipment to start playing.

Novice hoopsters open against Kemptville EMC sports – The Valley Pride Novice Girls basketball team experienced its first formal game of competition this past weekend. The team travelled to Kemptville Sunday and played the host team. The focus of the game was on having fun and learning the rules of the game. Both teams and parents erupted with enthusiasm when the girls scored. After fighting to a tie at the half, the Pride fell to the hosts by six points It was a toss-up on who had the most fun - the players or the parents.

The girls started with the Valley Pride last October and have attended skills sessions each Monday evening since. Novice age is for the Grade 3-4 age group. The team is hosting a tournament March 3 at ADHS to conclude the season. Girls of this age will be able to continue their development after the March break when the L’il Warrior clinics begin. In fact there will be clinics for girls from grade 2 to 7 at this time. Watch this paper for details in future weeks.

New Arnprior café caters to coffee lovers Kathryn Glynn

EMC business - Whether your taste buds prefer a latte, frappe, mocha, espresso, iced, regular or double double, coffee is personal. According to some statistics, 1.6 billion cups are consumed daily, worldwide. Its fragrant aroma and deep roasted flavour has the power to seduce the most resistant, and cause many of us to go to great lengths to get the perfect cup. Michele Leclair will attest to that. Leclair is the owner of The Press Café, a new and inviting coffee bar and eatery located on Daniel Street in Arnprior. Leclair is what some would call a coffee purist, hence the name of her business and the process she uses to create most of the java drinks served in her establishment. “One of the reasons to use a French press is to ensure you are getting the best from the fresh roasted beans. The coffee doesn’t sit, doesn’t go through a filter and doesn’t have that burnt taste,” she explained. Leclair is well travelled, an army brat growing up, she confessed. “North America is the only place where we accept substandard coffee. Once you taste good coffee, you aren’t going to go back.” There are a number of

“When you start to research, you find out that 99 per cent of coffee is bad before it even gets to our country,” she said. ATTRACTED TO ARNPRIOR


Michele Leclair demonstrates how to use a French press to make specialty coffees. things that go into a really good cup of coffee she points out, “beginning with the beans, temperature, consistency, the machine, the barista, experience ... “I don’t really drink wine, but I like my coffee. Coffee

is personal. I started to notice inconsistencies. “When you have a cup of coffee that is really, really good and then you go back and it isn’t. This interested me and how could I get a consistently good cup of coffee.

Leclair discovered this area when she owned a small cottage on Centennial Lake. The return to Ottawa after weekends and holidays became increasingly less attractive and she began to look for a permanent rural home. Seven years ago she sold her Ottawa property and the cottage and built a home on the Madawaska River. “It’s not as far as Centennial Lake but still far enough away from the city. For me it is the best of both worlds,” she said. The daily commute to Ottawa had only one drawback, “I was really missing good coffee and I had to wait until I got to Ottawa to get the kind I was looking for - an espressobased coffee.” Leclair discovered The Neat Café in Burnstown by accident, shortly after it opened. “I started going 18 kilometres out of my way for a good cup of coffee before driving to work in the mornings,” she said. The Press Café now uses coffee beans from the Neat

Café, where they are roasted fresh on site. “Fresh makes the taste, the smoothness, the texture,” Leclair said. Opening The Press Café is part of Leclair’s retirement plan. She wants to do something in semi-retirement that is more social and more a part of the community but isn’t quite ready to retire yet. This is where her son Dustin enters the picture. The 27-year old works at the café full time during the week and Leclair works on the weekends. She has put a lot of thought into creating the perfect space. “When I go to a coffee shop I am looking for soft seating, a comfortable place that I can sit down and relax. At 50 I’m looking for comfort, a moment to pause. A place to connect with friends and family, a place where I feel I can stay. “The overall vibe here is one of community and a sense of comfort. What I have noticed is if someone comes in and doesn’t know anyone in the room, it doesn’t take long before they are conversing. It is almost like you are in someone’s living room. It has that small, relaxed, intimate atmosphere.” Her menu introduces some international flavours with a

fresh selection that changes regularly. “Our Tai Salmon Club is a big hit, as is the Press Dip, Rockin’ Moroccan Soup and Pulled Chicken Panini,” she said. “We offer a limited menu each day with a limited amount of each item. It’s manageable and people know that we care about quality.” Menu items are reasonably priced with lunches under $10. Squares, tarts and muffins are also available unless a macchiato or chai latte is your choice for dessert. Leclair purchased the upper Daniel Street property last November and opened Christmas Eve. “The renovation included two 20-year-olds (spending) eight days to remove layers and layers of old wallpaper and in some cases from ceilings. The last layer, a design from the ‘30s was sanded and painted over,” she admitted. A back issue of Chatelaine magazine from 1935 was unearthed during the renovations. Leafing through the fashion magazine, Leclair discovered a kitchen designed with the same linoleum flooring and cupboard design as was in the house. The discovery presented another connection to the historic property. See SUMMER Page 21


Celebrating Gary Rafter’s 35 Years There are very few people who can look back on a successful 35 year career in the same industry, even fewer can boast of working at the same retailer all that time, and only one in the Ottawa Valley who can say that it all started as a temporary job. Gary Rafter recently hung up his keys to his sales desk at Reid Brothers Motor Sales after starting out in March of 1978 just to fill in some time while he awaited a job posting in Newfoundland as a crane operator. This Braeside lad was good friends with Robert Reid (father of the dealership’s current president, Trevor) who said he might as well keep busy while waiting for the move out east. Thirty Five years and 4,200 vehicles later (yes Gary kept track of the exact number he sold) the staff at Reid Brothers, as well as Gary’s exceedingly long list of customers will miss him and his ability to make the workday seem very short and fun. He remarked recently that any success he had in selling cars and trucks was mainly due to a large number of friends and family who seemed to have a never-ending appetite for the GM products found at what has become an iconic landmark in Arnprior. Gary not only sold to a long list of regular customers but to their children and grandchildren as well. He’s noticed that brand loyalty by car owners today might not be what it once was (especially with younger buyers). But he treated everyone the same, young and old alike, even the most fickle customer soon became a fan of the Rafter brand. One of the biggest challenges in the auto retail industry for individuals starting out is to strike a balance between their personal/family life and business demands. Every sales consultant will tell you there are long hours and many evenings and Saturdays away from the home front. But Gary kept his priorities straight and got to take as many activities and milestones

by Brian Turner

as possible of two very special children Tyler and Leslie, not to mention four very dear grandchildren Owen, Halle, Amelia and Nolan. He also never forgot to take time out for himself listing hockey, fastball, and golf as some of his favorite pastimes. When it came to hockey, he was happy that few of his family, friends, and customers didn’t hold his lifelong support of the Montreal Canadiens against him even during playoff droughts. Trevor Reid acknowledges that Gary will be sorely missed at the dealership and few will be able to match his history and accomplishments. Gary’s awards from General Motors for his sales professionalism and customer satisfaction achievements will easily fill a wall at his home, if he ever decides to put them up. You see, Gary was never one to brag or boast about his success, but rather was always humbly awed and very thankful for the support of his customers and friends. When asked if he had any advice to someone starting out the trek he began 35 years ago, Gary simply said, “Always be honest and upfront and never tell a lie because if you do, you’ll never be able to remember which lie you told and it will always catch up with you in the end.” That type of philosophy is what keeps clients coming back to sales professionals like Gary and retailers like Reid Brothers, year after year after year. No one knows for sure if Gary really will retire and take it easy, or if he’ll end up being twice as busy for the next 35 years. But no matter what the future holds we all know Gary will still be surrounded by friends and family, even during a Canadien’s game.

Trevor Reid has his arm around Gary Rafter during a recent retirement celebration. Gary’s enthusiasm and work ethic will be missed among his customer base and co-workers.

Naturalist stresses value of bats as new exhibit opens Kathryn Glynn

EMC news - A new exhibit at the Arnprior and District Museum sheds light on the mysterious life of bats. The often misunderstood mammals are part of the museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest exhibit entitled, Listen to the Night: Bats of Ontario. The exhibit officially opened last Friday evening with a special presentation by naturalist and Carleton University professor Michael Runtz. Runtz, who is well-known to the community for his involvement with the Macnamara Field Naturalists and a weekly column in the Arnprior Chronicle Guide EMC and West Carleton Review EMC, offered an up-close look at some of the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 51 mammal species with a slide presentation using his captivating wildlife photography.

Bats galore in the Arnprior and District Museum EMC lifestyle – Finding bats in older buildings is never a surprise. However, this past week an unusually high number turned up in Arnprior. In addition to species regularly found inside houses, the “colony” contained species that never appear inside buildings. That is because the bats are part of a Royal Ontario Museum exhibit currently on display in the Arnprior and District Museum. Bats intrigue us. They are the only flying mammals, joining dragonflies and birds in ruling the skies. Bats fly primarily at night, a feature that creates an aura of mystique. But bats also make us uncomfortable. They are odd-looking creatures, possessing oversized ears, surprisingly large canine teeth, and a furry body positioned between two peculiar membranous wings. The exploitative use in horror films of their odd appearances and habit of lapping blood (done by only a few tropical species) has resulted in many a nightmare. Bats flit back and forth over our heads, not to entangle themselves in our hair (a persistent myth) but to pluck beetles, moths, and other insects from the air. Our local species are masters at catching flying invertebrates, eating half their body

Michael Runtz Nature’s Way weight most nights, with pregnant females doubling that amount. And they find food in a most unusual way, by throwing out ultrasonic pulses and listening to the returning echoes. Each species uses a slightly different frequency and pulse rate of sound. As they fly, bats send out sound pulses, testing the air for obstacles to avoid or objects to eat. When a shape of interest is detected, the pulse rate increases and the frequency elevates. This provides a finer picture, and if the object is edible, the bat swoops in and grabs it in its mouth or uses its membranous tail as a net to first snatch it from the air. Five of our eight local species are resident all year. Big Brown Bats and Little Brown Myotis are the most common

Although they sport a fierce appearance, Big Brown Bats are dangerous only to flying insects. species. Winter is spent in large groups in hibernacula, which are often old mines or caves. Less common species such as Northern Myotis can be found in their clusters. With lowered body temperature and a much-reduced heart rate (which is as high as 1,100 beats per minute during flight), they spend winter in a dormant state.

Hibernating bats currently face grave danger. A fungus imported from Europe is decimating bats across eastern North America. Called the White Nose Syndrome because it proliferates around the face, the fungus disrupts their sleep, causing them to burn up precious fat stores. Six million bats have died since the fungus made its North American debut in

2005/2006. Many colonies have been wiped out by this deadly infliction. Red Bats are one of three species that migrate. They also face new and grave danger. Wind turbines now block their age-old migration paths. A turbine’s rotating blades are easily evaded, but the pressure change they create causes a bat’s lungs to burst. All our bats are currently


under siege, and their future looks bleak. If you want to learn more about bats, visit the Arnprior and District Museum (www. It is sad but true that in the future, museums may be the only places these fascinating creatures will inhabit. The Nature Number is 613387-2503; email is mruntz@

Improving the Patient Experience Arnprior Regional Health is continuously looking at ways to make your patient experience better. At the end of 2012 we asked the community (through a survey and focus groups) what we are doing well and what we could do better. The replies were varied and many were complimentary - Thank you! Those who had been a patient in the last two years offered feedback and suggestions when it came to emergency room visits and/ or stays on the inpatient unit. A lean review coupled with your feedback have enabled ARH to already implement a few changes that will allow for emergency patients to be treated and released quicker, or for some patients to be admitted quicker. Our former practice was that patients who came to the emergency department would be seen right away by a triage nurse. The nurse would check vitals and discuss the presenting health concern. The patient would be assessed and given an acuity scale (to ensure the sickest patients is seen first). The patient would then register and wait their turn to see the physician. Once the patient was being examined, the physician might order further tests such as blood work or an x-ray or an ultrasound. The patient would then wait for the procedures, then wait for the results and then wait to speak to the emergency physician about the results. In an effort to reduce these types of wait times, ARH streamlined the process and developed new medical directives for certain conditions. Now when patients present with issues such as abdominal pain or kidney stones the triage nurse is authorized to send the patient for specific tests (bloodwork or x- ray). Both diagnostic imaging and the ARH lab added more urgent patient time slots to ensure better patient flow in these circumstances. What these new directives mean is that by the time the physician comes to do the exam, the test results have been received and a treatment plan can begin. Wait times were also flagged as an issue for patients who enter through emergency and are subsequently admitted to the inpatient unit. Patient flow needed to improve and become more streamlined for the patient. ARH now has a new registration check lists to ensure all information is taken at one point, from vital information to preferred accommodations. The goal is that the time from when the decision is made to admit the patient that we are able to get them to the inpatient unit within one hour of admission. So far this new process has resulted in: better data collection; patients are receiving their requested room right away (i.e. private or semi); and physicians are able to indicate an expected discharge date on the chart allowing for a smoother transition from hospital to home. Many other changes will be implemented within the next year to improve both patient flow and the patient experience. It is well documented that patients with an excellent hospital experience have a quicker recovery time and at ARH we want your care to be excellent. We capture this data regularly through surveys sent to patients following their discharge from hospital, whether the patient was in the emergency department or on the inpatient unit. Please take the time to fill in your survey and return it to the survey company. Based on your feedback through the surveys, we have improved the discharge instructions we provide to our patients, and have also made changes to food services and the environment. We want to ensure your experience was excellent and this is how you can let us know. For those of you who may not receive a survey following discharge there is now a feedback option on our website In addition to offering feedback on your patient experience you can also email a patient or thank a staff member.

EMC lifestyle - The Northcote School smelled differently in the winter time than it did in the summer. That may have a lot to do with the fact Miss Crosby opened the windows in the warm weather. But I thought back then it had more to do with the piles of gum rubbers, wet socks, the wood stove, and the bagged lunches on the table at the back of the room. All the girls at the Northcote School wore galoshes. Some had rabbit fur down their fronts, and then some of us just had galoshes that laced up tight around our ankles. It was a sign of wealth if your galoshes had fur on them. Sadly, I never owned such a pair as that! The boys wore either gum rubbers or rubber boots. The gum rubbers and boots had a thick layer of red around the soles. Most of them were bought at Briscoe’s General Store, where they hung from the ceiling. Mr. Briscoe used a long pole with a hook on it to retrieve them. I could never fathom how he knew what size he was bringing down, but he never seemed to make a mistake. After running around the school yard before Miss Crosby rang either the morning or recess bell, there wasn’t one of us whose feet weren’t soaked to the skin. That meant that as soon as we got into the school room, we pulled off our outer foot wear, and gum rubbers, galoshes, and rubber boots, and they were all laid out around

Mary Cook’s Memories BY MARY COOK

the pot-bellied stove where blocks of wood had been placed to lean the footwear against. It didn’t take long, with the fire in the stove fair jumping, for the array of galoshes and boots to smell to high heaven. The girls put on felt slippers, hand-made of course, and the boys just walked around in their socks, which soon smelled as bad as the array of boots near the stove. We girls wouldn’t dream of wearing the same stockings to school two days in a row, but from the smell of the boys’ feet, my older sister Audrey said she doubted their socks had been changed for over a week. And that included my three brothers, who Mother thought were old enough to look after their own feet. Only a few of the pupils had tin lunch boxes. My little friend Joyce had one with a bright red painted lid, and a hook inside that anchored the little thermos bottle. Of course, Joyce’s family were very rich, I thought. Didn’t they live in a brick house, and have a flush toilet? So she could afford a bright tin lunch box. However, most of us took our lunch in brown paper bags, saved after making purchases at Briscoe’s General Store. These bags once held

tea, sugar, or rolled oats, and were never thrown out. We had a rack in our kitchen that had a spring lever attached to it, and all the bags were neatly folded and kept on this rack which hung by the wood box. Most were just the right size for a school lunch. There was a crudely built table at the back of the school room, and this is where all the lunches were kept. All the bags looked the same, and it always amazed me how I never once knew any of us to get our lunches mixed up! It was an unwritten law never to bring a sandwich with onions on it. It wouldn’t take long for the smell to fill the small one room school house, and drown out the stench of the array of footwear around the stove. Which, on second thought, would not have been such a bad idea! It didn’t take long to figure out what a lot of the pupils had brought to eat. Head cheese was a staple in the Depression years, and well seasoned with summer savoury, and sliced thin, often filled sandwiches back then. I hated head cheese with a passion. My distaste was right up there with my hatred for blood pudding. It had more to do with watching Mother

make both on the kitchen table, than the taste of it that turned my stomach. My very favourite sandwich was one made with bologna. Favourite, but rare. The few slices Mother bought on rare occasions, to me, was the ultimate school lunch. I loved bologna with a passion. There were always home-made cookies, fruit was unheard of. We toted milk in glass jars. It wasn’t hard to tell who had what for their lunch. You could smell the headcheese, and the maple cookies long before the paper bags were opened. Miss Crosby bent the rules at lunch time, allowing us to sit where we wanted, while she still kept an eagle eye on all of us from her desk at the front of the room. By the time the school day came to a close at four o’clock, the familiar smell of school books, chalk and erasers was long lost. The room reeked of dried out footwear, wet mitts, and socks. When the last of us left the school, Miss Crosby could be seen swinging the storm and inner doors open wide, and putting a block of wood against them to hold them open to complete air out the place. And so that by the time we next came to the Northcote School, the only smell would be from the freshlystarted wood fire raging in the old stove in the centre of the room. But like the day before, it wouldn’t take long for the smells of winter to take over.

Keeping the lessons of the Holocaust alive Holocaust survivor David Shentow of Ottawa made another visit to Arnprior Jan. 18 to tell Arnprior District High School students how he experienced â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;hell on earthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; during almost four years in the Nazi concentration camp at Auschwitz. The 87-year-old Shentow was accompanied by his wife of 63 years, Rose. ADHS teacher Ryan McKenna, who has received the Arie Van Mansum Award for his efforts to educate students about the holocaust, organizes Shenkowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s visit, which has become an annual affair over the last 10 years. Shentow speaks out to ensure that the holocaust that took the lives of six million Jews during the Second World War is not forgotten and to counter those who would deny it happened.

New premier to be sworn in Monday EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first female premier, Kathleen Wynne, and her cabinet will be sworn-in this Monday, Feb. 11 at Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Park. The first cabinet meeting will take place following the ceremony. Wynne was first elected to the Ontario legislature in 2003, in the riding of Don Valley West. She became leader of the Ontario Liberal party at the partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s convention in Toronto on Jan. 26. KATHLEEN WYNNE Wynne said she will try to keep governing, despite the Liberals being in a minority government position. The Progressive Conservatives have made it clear they will try to topple the government at their first opportunity. That leaves the government dependent on the NDP. NDP Leader Andrea Horwath is asking Wynne to support what she calls â&#x20AC;&#x153;achievable ideas that will allow Ontario to focus on making life better for typical families while balancing Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s books.â&#x20AC;? Horwathâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main requests are for a home care guarantee that will ensure seniors receive home care service within five days, a reduction in auto insurance rates by 15 per cent, and a commitment to find savings within the current fiscal framework while protecting the â&#x20AC;&#x153;quality services Ontarians rely on.â&#x20AC;?

Algonquin land claim agreement raises many questions: MPP JOHN YAKABUSKI MPPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Column

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Everyone seems to be talking about how bad the cold and flu season has been this year, and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no question it has been one of the worst in recent memory. Hopefully some of the cold weather that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had lately will kill off some of those germs, and we can put that mess behind us. Since the release late last year of the agreement in principle (AIP) respecting the Algonquin Land Claim, the AIP has been one of the most common issues Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been receiving calls about. The Land Claim covers an area of approximately 36,000 square kilometers, stretching from the Ontario/Quebec border to beyond North Bay. Within the AIP there is a proposed transfer of Crown land to the Algonquins of Ontario (AOO) of not less than 117,000 acres. Of that 117,000 acres, approximately 80 per cent lies within my riding of Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke, making it by far and away the most directly affected by the proposed settlement.

specifics on the land to be transferred and the harvesting rights for Algonquins vs. non-aboriginals. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a number of calls from private property owners themselves, who currently border on Crown land that has been designated for transfer to the AOO. They have presented me with a number of questions as to the criteria of why the land bordering their properties was chosen over other tracts of land. By now, each one of those private property owners will have received a letter to set up a meeting between themselves and the Ministry of Natural Resources, hopefully to further clarify this issue. The other major concern that has been raised is with respect to agreements dealing with the harvesting of fish and wildlife. Aboriginal harvesting rights are clearly defined in section 35 of the Constitution of Canada, and confirmed by the Supreme Court. There have also been agreements worked out with the province to ensure that conservation and the preservation of fish and wildlife receives the greatest priority. HUNTING, FISHING


While there are many issues to be addressed, based on the calls I have received the two that are resulting in the greatest cause for concern will be the

How this land claim will affect the hunting and fishing opportunities of nonaboriginals is certainly causing some stir, as evidenced by the recent letter to the editor from Greg Farrant, the Manager

of Government Affairs and Policy for the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters. While no one questions the significance of hunting and fishing in the Algonquin culture, I believe it has been demonstrated over the past couple hundred years that it is equally part of the culture of non-aboriginals in my riding. PUBLIC INPUT

As these discussions continue, and I hope that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ample opportunity for the public to be involved, we must endeavor to end with an agreement that is viewed as being fair and equitable to both the AOO and the non-aboriginals who reside within the territory affected by the AIP. Ensuring that those affected are properly consulted will go a long way in achieving that. Doing the right things now is most important. When this process is over, and it will take several years, the result has to be a final agreement that resolves a long standing issue with the Algonquins. Creating a whole new set of problems must be avoided. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve met with officials from Aboriginal Affairs and Natural Resources and expect to meet with the O.F.A.H. next week. I will continue to do my best to get as much clarity on this file as possible.

MP backs efforts to deter African terrorism

Summer job applications urged

EMC news – RenfrewNipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant recently travelled to Africa as a member of the Canada-Africa Parliamentary Association to obtain a more comprehensive knowledge of Canada’s involvement in the region through contact with parliamentarians, government officials, civil society groups, media representatives and businesses. “With the world’s attention on events in Africa, now was the right time to witness firsthand the challenges Africans are facing,” said Gallant. She pointed out that NATO Ally France has taken decisive action to stop Mali from becoming a West African Afghanistan. Its action is meant to restore stability and prevent a repetition of events in Afghanistan where international terrorist group the Taliban took over that country to provide a safe haven for al-Qaeda, she maintained. She noted that Kenya is currently about to launch a parliamentary election process as the first elections held under its new constitution. “Canada supports democracy, good governance, human rights and the rule of law as the most effective non-violent way to combat terrorism and the rise of rogue states,” said Gallant. “This was the message conveyed by the delegation. “We have seen in Afghanistan what happens when a state becomes de-stabilized. It becomes an enclave for terrorists, who then de-stabilize other states,” said Gallant. “Terrorism is a global threat that knows no border, nationality or religion. It is a chal-

EMC lifestyle – It’s time for employers to apply for summer job funding. Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant issued a reminder to employers last week that applications to assist in the hiring of summer students will be available all month. “Canada Summer Jobs is an important part of our government’s Youth Employment Strategy (YES),” she said. “Today’s students are tomorrow’s workforce, so by investing in them we are helping contribute to Canada’s long-term growth, competitiveness and overall prosperity. Gallant noted the program is always oversubscribed, so encouraged all employers to get applications for funding submitted as soon

as possible. Canada Summer Jobs provides funding to help employers create summer job opportunities for students. It is designed to focus on local priorities, while helping both students and their communities. It jobs provide work experiences for students; support organizations, including those that provide important community services; and recognize that local circumstances, community needs and priorities vary widely. To support employers, the Canada Summer Jobs applicant guide is available online and at Service Canada Centres. The application period runs to Feb. 28.


Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant with General Henry Odilo, Commander of the Malawi Defence Force, during her visit to Africa. Odilo stepped in to uphold the constitution of Malawi last spring when the president died and there were rumors of an attempted constitutional coup. “This level of professionalism had a direct impact on the smooth transition of power,” said Gallant. “When it came to security and economic issues, the African Union wants to lead,” she said. “That was important for me to hear directly from African leaders. Assistance in judicial, parliamentary, human rights and security training from the West are welcome.” She said that Canadian soldiers from CFB Petawawa have already helped in teaching human rights and other skills. “I owe it to the soldiers and their families to be fully informed before I am requested to support any change in Canada’s position on crises in the region,” explained Gallant.


lenge that the international community tackles together. Since the attacks of 11 September 2001, NATO has been actively engaged in the fight against terrorism. “In response to those attacks, NATO invoked Article 5 of the Washington Treaty, the Alliance’s collective defence clause, for the first time in its history. Gallant reported the Canadian delegation had the opportunity to strengthen relations with regional organizations, most particularly the Pan-African Association and agencies delivering material and nutritional care.

Grooming senior pets takes special considerations EMC lifestyle – Since senior pets find it increasingly difficult to groom themselves, it becomes very important that the pet owner take up the role of groomer. It is also a good time to get in touch with a professional groomer to determine what is best for the pet in question. A number of changes are possible in your pet’s skin as they reach their senior years. Skin that has been healthy may become dry and flaky. You may see dander on the surface of the coat. At the opposite end, skin may become excessively oily and feel greasy to the touch. These changes may reflect your pet’s inability to groom properly. Arthritis often makes it hard for some pets to reach certain places. Mental changes associated with aging may cause a lack of interest in normally fastidious pets. You may need to help out with more frequent brushings and baths. Lumps and Bumps: As your pet ages, you may notice that you begin to see or feel lumps or bumps both on and underneath the surface of the skin.

Pet Talk

IAN STUPP All new skin growths should be evaluated by your pet’s doctor to determine if any further attention is needed. Some may only be a nuisance, aggravating your pet if they are located in sensitive areas. Another type of lump/bump you may see is a pressure sore. These sores are commonly found on the elbows and are more common in large breed dogs but can be seen with more frequency as your pet ages and loses a bit of protective muscle mass. If you see these types of sores developing, it is time to provide a soft padded surface like a pillow or dog bed for

your pet to lie down on. Nails: Most pets dislike nail trims. The bad news is that as your pet ages it becomes even more important to trim them and even more difficult to do. Nails often become thick and brittle with age. Pets may resent having their paws handled, further delaying the chore. Nails and nail beds may become overgrown. They can grow into the pads and be quite painful, and make walking a chore. Make it a habit to trim a small amount of nail on your dog or cat every two weeks to prevent overgrowth and make walking easier. Posterior: If your pet has long hair, keep the area around the rear end clipped short. Feces often mat in the hair causing skin irritations and unpleasant odours. Senior dogs and cats often fail to keep this area as clean. Ian owns and operates Wags & Whiskers Dog and Cat Grooming at 118 John St. N., Arnprior.

Legion hammering Knights in euchre challenge

Agency banks on TD support Staff at TD Arnprior recently handed over the proceeds from their annual drive for the Arnprior and District Food Bank. To help ensure the less fortunate receive help all year round, TD waited until after the Christmas rush to gather food items and monetary donations for the food bank. Funds were also raised through chocolate bar and used book sales. On hand for the presentation are, from left, food bank volunteer Ray Gartner, Tanya Caesar, food bank volunteer Allan Smith, branch manager Ray Gartner, Marilyn Kewley, Sharon Chesworth, and Marie Hass.

EMC events - Halfway through the annual Arnprior Knights\Legion Euchre Challenge the Legion holds a commanding 17-game advantage, say officials. Members of Arnprior Legion Branch 174 have been facing off against Local Knights of Columbus on Friday nights for the fun euchre challenge that is open to all. The next challenge is coming up Feb. 15 at the St. John Chrysostom Parish Hall in Arnprior. Registration is at 6:30 p.m. and games start at 7 p.m. Cost is $6 per team.

Stone Fence to look back at ‘Hippies up the Line’ EMC events – Renfrew County’s Stone Fence Theatre is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year with some new offerings including a look back an environmental play and a look back when ‘hippies’ first arrived in the Valley. First off, Stone Fence Theatre is presenting the first ever ‘play-reading’ of two locally written plays at the Sands in Golden Lake on Tuesday, Feb 19 from 7-9 p.m. For theatre fans this is an opportunity to hear a talented cast of readers present the ‘bones’ of a play without sets, costumes or lighting. For Stone Fence Theatre officials, it offers an opportunity to “test-drive” newly-submitted material. And they hope it will encourage other playwrights to submit scripts. For the playwrights, a reading provides valuable audience feedback and for the audience, it is an opportunity to experience the process of writing for the stage The two short plays presented are General Store and Homebound. General Store is a comedy-drama written by Kathy Lampi, Lynn

Flokstra and Johanna Zomers. When widowed Agnes decides to close down the Village General Store in the early 1960s, her beatnik poet granddaughter Loreen and her ner-do-well folksinger boyfriend Jimmy Dwight hatch a scheme to buy the store and open a coffee house. They find an unlikely ally in Bronas, the quiet widower/fiddle player who has been shyly courting Agnes. Homebound by Johanna Zomers is a drama about an aging farm widow Mina resisting her daughter-in-law Babs plan to banish her to a granny flat. Caught in the middle is farmer son Joe. Another major character is a clairvoyant fortune teller, Mme. Clara providing entertainment at Babs’ wedding shower. Popular musician Terry McLeish will entertain at intermission and everyone is welcome to come early and socialize over dinner. If you wish to have dinner, make reservations by calling the Sands at 613-625-2525 and stating that you are part of the Stone Fence

event. Attendance for the reading only does not require a reservation. Admission is $5 in support of a proposed playwriting workshop for local people who feel they have a story to tell but need some assistance with dramatic writing. For more information, contact Ann Bulger at 613-649-0067. WATERSHED PROJECT

Stone Fence Theatre is collaborating with the Bonnechere River Watershed Project, which asked it to develop a touring play to highlight land use and environmental issues. Johanna Zomers and Ish Theilheimer have written a script called Bonnechere River – the Future Tense, which is in rehearsal under the direction of Chantal Elie- Sernoskie. It features music by McLeish and actors Amber Dagenais, John Haslam, Josh McCoy, and Maureen McCoy, as well as Terry. Ann Bulger is producing the show, which will trav-

el to many public venues throughout Renfrew County in spring and summer. The schedule of performances will be posted to the Stone Fence Theatre website once it is confirmed. HIPPIES UP THE LINE

There’s Hippies Up the Line! Will be Stone Fence Theatre’s main stage production this year. It’s an all-new musical written by Ish Theilheimer and Johanna Zomers that takes a humorous and loving look at the relationships that developed between the back-to-the-landers who arrived in the 1970s and “the locals.” The box office, staffed this year by Helen and John McMaster of Eganville, opens in April. Last year’s production of Schoolhouse averaged 145 tickets sold per show, with a capacity of 160. Stone Fence anticipates bringing the show to Barry’s Bay, Killaloe, Eganville, Pembroke and Renfrew.

Healing focus of Galilee retreat Jehovahs focus on safeguarding The Galilee retreat, based on the Linn’s new book Healing the Future, will offer processes of healing to create a future giving new life rather than the future that is sapping life and that of ones children and grandchildren. Linn has focused on integrating physical, emotional and spiritual healing. Since 1970 he has taught courses and given retreats on healing in more than 50 countries and has co-authored 21 books translated in over 20 languages. He is a member of the Association of Christian Therapists and has advanced graduate degrees in sociology, anthropology, spirituality and theology. For more information about the retreat, call the Galilee Centre.

their minds at education seminar EMC lifestyle – Witnesses from 11 congregations of Jehovah’s Witnesses within Ottawa and the Valley, including Arnprior, attended a two-day Bible education seminar at their convention complex in Gatineau Jan. 26-27. The seminar’s theme was ‘Safeguard Your Mind’, based on Matthew 22:37. “The program was designed to help each one to analyze their own thoughts with a view to making them more pleasurable to Jehovah,”

said spokesman Don Walters. Talks and demonstrations were presented from the Bible to show delegates how its study equips them to reflect the mind of Christ and, therefore, to please Jehovah and thus benefit themselves. The seminar’s guest speaker was from the Canada Branch of Jehovah’s Witnesses. The theme of his principal address was ‘Keep Close In Mind Jehovah’s Day’. The highlight of the seminar was the ordination of two new ministers.

EMC lifestyle – A ‘Healing our Future’ retreat lead by Christian healer Matt Linn will be held at the Galilee Centre in Arnprior Sept. 20 to 22. When looking at the future what keeps you from feeling really happy? Perhaps it is anxiety over health, an ongoing difficult relationship or the loss of one’s dream. Maybe it is a bigger problem of surviving in a world with increasing violence, global warming, and financial insecurity. Whatever it is, fear of the future robs people of peace and health. Research says that those who look forward to the future actually live 7.6 years longer and tend to be happier and healthier.

1978-2013 The Grant family would like to extend a huge thank you to all who have supported us since Sophie’s passing. We have been overwhelmed by the response of this wonderful community. Thank you for the cards, baked goods, telephone calls, visitors, floral tributes, Facebook messages, and help received. To all work colleagues, friends, family and neighbors, a sincere thank you. We thank everyone at the Arnprior Hospital especially Dr. Boersma, Colleen Cuddy RN and Carol Neumann RN, who all cared for Sophie on her arrival at Arnprior until her transfer to Ottawa. Thank you also to the Renfrew County Paramedics and Ornge for their excellent care during transfer. To the staff of the Ottawa Civic Hospital who were amazing. To the Trauma and Neurosurgery departments, to the social workers, and most especially to every Nurse and Doctor of the ICU for their care and compassion in tending to Sophie and giving emotional support to our family. To Stephanie Currie-McCarragher coordinator of Trillium Gift of Life Network for her sensitivity, compassion and support that has been ongoing. To each and every one of you a sincere and heartfelt thank you Thank you for the donations made in memory of Sophie, either to her son Rhys (in trust) or to the Ottawa Civic Hospital ICU. Many people have donated since the visitation but we have not been able to thank them personally as it is a confidentiality issue for the Bank. So please accept our thanks for your generosity and kindness. CLR413105

IN MEMORIAM CAMERON, Norma Feb. 13, 2005 Lawrence Jan. 6, 1978 In loving memory of our dear parents, Norma and Lawrence. In our hearts, your memory lingers, Sweetly tender, fond and true, There is not a day, dear parents, That we do not think of you. Love always John, Janis & family GIBSON, Jack In loving memory of our devoted husband, Dad and Grandpa Jack, who passed away February 10, 2002. Our lives go on without you, But nothing is the same, We have to hide our heartache, When someone speaks your name. Sad are the hearts that loved you, Silent are the tears that fall, Living our lives without you, is the hardest part of all. You did so many things for us, Your heart was so kind and true, And when we needed someone, We could always count on you. The special years will not return, When we were all together, But with the love within our hearts, You will walk with us forever. In our hearts forever, Donna, Tammy, Kevin, Teisha, Greg, Mary and Ted

Love always, Lillian, Ronald, Gordon, Nancy, Bonnie and Family


To us you were so special What more is there to say, Except to wish with all our hearts That you were here today. They say that me heals everything, But we know it isn’t so, Because it hurts as much today, As it did one year ago.

Sadly missed by your loving daughter Margaret Ann, son-in-law John, and grandsons Jordan and Ryan.

Margaret Affleck Ross Burgess

Forever in our hearts, Love, Brian and Kim, Wayne, Lorna and family, Gail, Oliver and family


And always will

Loving you always, Forgetting you never, Nancy, Norman, Jeff, Judith, Zach, Angie, Amy and Randy


September 20, 1922 – February 12, 2012 In loving memory of a dear father, grandfather and great grandfather We little knew that day, That God would call your name, In life we loved you dearly, In death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, But you didn’t go alone, For part of us went with you, That day God called you home. Our family chain is broken, And nothing is the same, But as God calls us one by one, The chain will link again.

A whole year has passed Since God called you away But still we miss you Each and everyday What we would give To take one more walk Or just quietly sit and Have one more talk Miss you mom

Evans, Irene

Country takes on city to kick off Fitzroy carnival Sherry Haaima

Above, in a photograph submitted by Erica Bernier, Alex Bernier (Frosty) and sister Emily get ready to go on the ice at the Stewart Community Centre for the Pakenham Frost Festival’s kids’ costume contest Jan. 25. A couple of the names in last week’s Chronicle Guide EMC coverage of the Pakenham Frost Festival were botched. The correct spelling of the name of Little Miss Pakenham, shown above right checking out prizes with Mr. Pakenham Frostfest Ben Bernier, is Anna Machardy. It’s Melody Ranger (not Watters), shown at right singing Puff the Magic Dragon with accompaniment by Mike and Ruby Watters. The young fiddlers on stage that morning were Isaiah Jackson and Matthew Skebo. The musical Ziebarth sisters are Maeghan, Delaney and Mary. The paper apologizes for the errors.

Emc events - Organizers of the Feb. 7-9 Fitzroy Winter Carnival remind everyone to be sure and head out to one of the many events planned in and around the village’s community centre. From tonight’s (Thursday’s) spaghetti supper (7-9 p.m.) hosted by the Arnprior Amateur Wresting Club that kicks off the carnival to Saturday’s Survivorman Challenge, there’s a variety of festival events. “We just want people to come out and enjoy the rink and spend time in the community,” said Leigh Ann Kyte, one of the carnival organizers. “We’re hoping to bring carnival back to what it used to be.” There are “tons” of volunteers who have come forward to ensure another successful event with all kinds of activities going on. “For the first time this year there’s a country versus city hockey game,” said Kyte. “At 7 p.m. Thursday after the spaghetti supper some City of Ottawa guys are coming out to take on some of our Fitzroy boys.” Kyte said it looks like the weather is somewhat co-operating with carnival plans. Organizers are really excited about the return of the megasliding hill, a man-made snow slope that is making its return this year “We give it a bit of help and ice it a bit and the kids can have fun sliding all day,” said Kyte. On Friday from 6:30-8 p.m., there’s a family fun night that includes a skating party, kids costume judging and bonfire. Registration for poker night begins at 6 p.m. with the action set to start at 7 p.m. sharp. From 8-9 p.m. is the highly anticipated Fitzroy Harbour Outdoor Hockey League Challenge Cup. A women’s hockey game runs from 9-10 p.m. Local entertainment is scheduled to entertain the crowds Saturday afternoon in the hall. Among the other highlights this year is the Survivorman challenge. “The Survivorman challenge was a big success last year and it’s back,” said Kyte of the event that includes sawing a log, driving a nail and starting a fire. “A lot of people will be back to see if they can better their time.” Also returning is the popular Saturday night trivia event. “The McAskills organize a really fun event, said Kyte.
