EMC news - It’s not getting any easier, or cheaper, for McNab-Braeside council as it continues to struggle through the process of evaluating a controversial Miller Paving application to expand operations at the Braeside Quarry. Council will continue its review of the studies and peer reviews that are an integral part of the application in the third of probably four sessions next Tuesday, March 12. The meeting. open to the public. will be held from 3 to 6 p.m., prior to council’s planning advisory committee. At this week’s council meeting, council was alerted to the fact the township, already facing a stiff price for dealing with the many public questions on the issue, will likely be charged more for the use of Renfrew county planner Bruce Howarth. The county is increasing its fees for planning matters and has indicated it would be charging as much as $200 for “extra” meetings that Howarth attends. The planner has been playing a lead role in guiding council through the complex process. Deputy Mayor Christine Blimkie wondered why the $300,000 township taxpayers contribute to the county didn’t pay for the service, extra or not. Mayor Mary Campbell also wants to consult with the county on how the expansion will impact township roads.

EMC news - Saving lives in Renfrew County just got easier. Through a partnership of the Heart and Stroke Foundation and the Renfrew County Paramedic Service, 45 automated external defibrillators (AEDs) have been installed across the

county since 2005, while another 67 are scheduled to be installed in Renfrew County facilities by June 2013. “We’ve really been leading the area for the last eight years,” health promotion specialist Micheline Turnau of the Heart and Stroke Foundation told the Feb. 28 session of Renfrew County

council. Renfrew-area facilities identified to receive new AEDs include each elementary school in Renfrew, Walter Zadow Public School in Arnprior, McNab Public School, a second AED at the Nick Smith Centre in Arnprior, Renfrew Collegiate Institute, Admaston Recreation Complex, the White Lake sports

and recreation facility, and the Matawatchan community hall. The Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre, St. Joseph’s Catholic High School and the Renfrew Royal Canadian Legion are among about 40 buildings where the AEDs are already located. See UPCOMING, Page 3

LIFE-SAVER AT PEAKS

One dramatic, life-saving incident occurred Jan. 10 at Calabogie Peaks Ski Resort, where a skier collapsed after a day of skiing and went into cardiac arrest. Without a pulse, he was revived after receiving CPR from an offduty nurse and a ski patrol member’s use of the local AED unit. After being transported by Ornge Air Ambulance, the man underwent successful surgery at the Ottawa Heart Institute the same day. “It’s that quick reaction that we would like to see, that people know where the AEDs are, and what to do, and we know how to start CPR as soon as possible,â€? said Turnau. “When these things are in place we have great success,â€? she added. “We know we can continue to improve our survival rates across the province by doing these things.â€? Nolan says statistics from the past year have been extremely encouraging. “In previous years, we were seeing survival rates from cardiac arrest of one, two or three per cent. But council has invested in a number of programs, not the least of which has been the AED program and community awareness. “In 2012 the early run on our data, not to be conďŹ rmed yet, we’re seeing a 15 per cent survival rate,â€? said Nolan. The number of AEDs in Renfrew County will soon more than double, with the help of the program that’s funded by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. The 67 AEDs are among an estimated 2,500 AEDs that will be put into schools, recreation centres and other facilities across On-

tario with the co-operation of the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Schools are preferred locations for AEDs, said Turnau, because they have proven to be community hubs that are also used for afterschool activities by both youngsters and adults. For each of the 67 AEDs coming to Renfrew County, up to 10 people will receive free training on how to operate the device. The Renfrew County Paramedic Service will also provide maintenance of the AED units and annual retraining. Since the introduction of the program in Renfrew County eight years ago, about 48 lives have been saved, said Turnau. The more AEDs the better, says Nolan. “We’ve got a huge county, which continues to be a challenge to have a response time, of an urban nature, of eight minutes or less. “So what we’ve done is target locations where people come together, where there’s Heart Wise programs, where there are municipal halls, recreation facilities and hockey rinks ‌ where we’ll get the best bang for our buck and be able to use devices such as this. “We’ve also partnered with the private sector, like Calabogie Peaks which was generous enough to come forward to purchase a deďŹ brillator. We’ve also made them part of our program by providing training and early notiďŹ cation within our dispatch system. “If you dial from a place that has a deďŹ brillator on site, the dispatcher automatically sees that there’s a deďŹ brillator and will direct the caller to get that device,â€? explains Nolan.

EMC news - A new procedure bylaw is under review by Arnprior council. The Municipal Act requires that every municipally pass a procedure bylaw. Arnprior already has one in place, but it is cumbersome. “It tends to jump back and forth in topics,â€? said Chief Administrative OfďŹ cer Michael Wildman during the town’s council meeting on Feb. 25. The town reviewed recently adopted procedure bylaws across the province and discovered that the town’s bylaw could be improved in several ways. The new bylaws will group topics together and better deďŹ ne terms and words to allow for ease of reading. Striking committees and advisory committees and closed meetings have been made consistent with the Municipal Act. “I’m not suggesting that the current procedure bylaw is inconsistent with it, but I would suggest that the current set-up as we are proposing is a little bit more in line with the Municipal Act,â€? said Wildman. The use of communication devices during council meetings has been addressed and the agenda has been streamlined. The new bylaw has seen the addition of role calls and an award section as well as a resolution section. Motions have been enhanced and better described. “There are more details in terms of what the motion and what the options are,â€? explained Wildman. Voiding procedures have also been clariďŹ ed. Remote conferencing has also been addressed. With consultants charging by the hour, the cost of inviting an expert to the council chambers can become prohibitive and remote conferencing would become a viable solution to keep the costs down. “We will have a section that will allow for that type of professional advice and by way of either Skype or teleconference to keep the cost down for the municipality,â€? said Wildman. The bylaw will also be reviewed every ďŹ ve years to guarantee it is current. Council will vote on it during the next council meeting March 11.

The annual Hockey for Heart tournament to be held this year March 15-16 at the Nick Smith Centre has played a major role in raising awareness and money for deďŹ brillators in public buildings. So far there are eight teams signed for the tournament, with more in the works. Any teams interested in participating in the tournament should contact Glenn Arthur at the Nick Smith Centre by this weekend. Hockey for Heart tournaments are held throughout Ontario, with the Arnprior one in its fourth year. The events raise money and awareness for the need for deďŹ brillators in public building, as well as promoting heart health. The money raised stays in the area where the tournaments are held. The growing number of AEDs in the county is leading to a growing success rate with treatment of cardiac arrests, County council was told. In the last year or so, Renfrew County chief paramedic Mike Nolan says the former revival rate of about three per cent for 90 to 100 people suffering cardiac arrest has improved drastically.

for full day kindergarten

EMC news - Full day kindergarten is coming to Walter Zadow Public School (WZPS). Starting in September, WZPS will join the list of Renfrew County District School Board schools offering full day kindergarten. “We are thrilled to announce the Renfrew County District School Board will be completing renovations to the school, creating a new kindergarten wing,” said principal Kim Shoveller. “When finished, the three newly renovated rooms will be the largest kindergarten spaces in Renfrew County.” Each room will be equipped with a SMARTBoard to incorporate technology for WZPS’ youngest learners. “We recognize that technology has an important role in allowing our students to connect to many information sources,” Shoveller said.

“The rooms will also feature all of the characteristics of welcoming, safe and effective learning spaces, with close proximity to the main office and main door.” The school council has been working hard the past few years on fundraising for playground equipment for the kindergarten yard. “We look forward to having a new playground available for the kindergarten students, just outside their door,” the principal said. There is still time to register your child for kindergarten. Call the school at 613-623-4235 to make an appointment. “We look forward to welcoming new families into our school community as we focus on the development of skills, character and providing a solid foundation for future learning,” Shoveller said.

This town truck was parked legally, explains Town of Arnprior’s CAO, because it was actively involved in conducting maintenance.

Wrong-way truck ‘parked properly’ on John Street EMC news – The ‘wrong-way’ truck pictured in last week’s ChronicleGuide was not a bylaw enforcement vehicle and was not breaking the law. Why the vehicle was parked the wrong way on John Street in downtown Arnprior was questioned by some members of the public, who contacted the newspaper. Town CAO Michael Wildman explained that it was not an Arnprior bylaw vehicle contracted to Municipal Law Enforcement Services, but an Arnprior public works vehicle actively completing maintenance work under the supervision of the town’s public works supervisor, who was parked a few vehicles further down the road. The caution lights were operational on the vehicle for safety reasons as well indicating that the Public Works vehicle was actively conducting maintenance activity, he noted. As this was the case it was not in contravention of the town’s Traffic and Parking bylaw, said Wildman. “Municipal vehicles are exempt under section 15 of the Traffic and Parking bylaw 6000-11 provided that said vehicle displays a recognized symbol of the Town and the vehicle is being used in the performance of municipal duties. As such, there was no infraction or wrong-doing, and the activities were in keeping with the Traffic and Parking bylaw. “The reason for this exemption is that maintenance activities must not be restricted in any way to ensure the safest and most efficient and effective completion of repairs,” Wildman explained. “This is a common provision in most municipal traffic and parking bylaws.”

EMC news There is still time to volunteer to serve as a public representative on one of the Town of Arnprior’s new advisory committees. Town CAO Michael Wildman said Tuesday that council is still a short a couple of applications for the operations and corporate services committees. The deadline was originally today (Thursday), so any interested citizens should act right away. Wildman said it is important that the four or five public positions be filled on the three committees (community development is the third) to ensure the citizenry has a say on developing policies in town. It also helps town councillors get a feel for the “pulse” of the community, he added. The new committees are expected to be formed and begin meeting in March or April. Call or drop in at town hall if interested.

ADHS student honoured for winning Holocaust essay Sherry Haaima

sherry.haaima@metroland.com

It was the experience of a lifetime for Arnprior District High School student Melissa Kargus. As part of Holocaust Education Month this past November, the Shoah (Holocaust) Committee of the Jewish Federation of Ottawa worked with the school boards and teachers to run an essay writing contest for high school students. The topic of the essay was Raoul Wallenberg’s Story Needs to be Told Today Because …and Kargus hit the nail on the head with her entry ‘Raoul Wallenberg: Lessons For Today’. To receive the award, Kargus and her family were invited to the home of Swedish Ambassador Teppo Taurianinen in Rockliffe Park. Also on hand to acknowledge Kargus’ accomplishment was the Israeli Ambassador, Her Excellency Miriam Ziv and Hungarian Ambassador His Excellency Dr. László Pordány. “It was really fun. It was amazing actually,” said Kargus. “It was a pretty incredible experi-

ADHS student Melissa Kargus credits teacher Ryan McKenna for bringing the contest to her attention and helping with proofreading and editing.

ence for all of us.” For her efforts, Kargus receives a trip to Washington to visit the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. The Grade 11 student thanked her teacher Ryan McKenna of ADHS, without whom none of this would have come about. McKenna is known for his attention to Holocaust education, including regularly bringing in survivors to speak about their experiences. McKenna, in fact, recently won an award for teaching about the Holocaust. He brought the contest to her attention and helped edit and proofread the final submission. “He’s amazing,” said Kargus. “He really goes above and beyond for everything.” At the outset of the assignment, Kargus was not familiar with Wallenberg. The more she learned, the more impressed she became. Wallenberg was a Swedish architect, businessman, diplomat and humanitarian known for his successful efforts to rescue tens of thousands of Jews in Nazi-occupied Hungary during the Holocaust. While serving as Sweden’s special envoy in Budapest, Wallenberg issued protective passports and sheltered Jews in buildings designated as Swedish territory saving tens of thousands of lives. “I was floored,” said Kargus. “This was amazing. The gist of her essay was that we look back at the Holocaust and focus mainly on the evil of Hitler and those who did nothing to stop the horrific genocide. We should also, said Kargus, focus on those selfless individuals who risked their lives to help others. “It (Holocaust) was a reflection of the best and worst of humanity basically,” she said. “There were the people like Raoul Wallenberg who were just heroes. It’s important to remember these people as well.” Wallenberg was the theme for HEM this past year in honour of the 100th anniversary of his birth. The contest was sponsored by the Shoah Committee and the Swedish, Hungarian and Israeli Embassies. Kargus is a busy student, balancing academics with a part-time job at Castlegarth Restaurant and sports, including basketball, track and field and softball.

Israeli Ambassador Miriam Ziv, Swedish Ambassador Teppo Taurianinen and Hungarian Ambassador Dr. László Pordány join Kargus at the presentation.

OPINION

Connected to your community

EDITORIAL

Come back refreshed The March Break is mere days away â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a chance for students to enjoy a holiday away from school before running the long home stretch to June. Some students get to enjoy a family vacation while others spend time with babysitters or other family members while their parents work to make ends meet. Perhaps the break for students, and teachers too, will provide the cooling-off period needed to bring the schools back to sense of normalcy. Congratulations to the secondary school teachers union for taking a step toward restoring normal relations between educators, students and politicians. The declaration that public school teachers could resume involvement in extra-curriculars without being declared pariahs was a welcome one. Some teachers may not have liked it, but with a new premier and students chomping at the bit to resume sports, music and other activities in the final semester, it certainly made sense on several levels. The teachers have made their point. Now they need to bring unity back within their ranks and cultivate allies at Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Park. If the teacher leadership is mad at the Liberals, imagine how theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll feel if the government is forced into an election and the Progressive Conservatives take over. So, brownie points for the high school teachers for the sudden infusion of common sense to the issue. However, the same canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be said for the leaders of the public school elementary teachers. They need to take another look at the issue over the March Break and follow the lead of the high school peers. The way the secondary school teachers have handled it allows individual teachers to still refuse to be involved in extra-curriculars, which are voluntary. But at least it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t because their

leadership is telling them so. That perception isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t doing the teachers any good in the court of public opinion. While extra-curriculars tend to be more important at the secondary school level, there still be a lot of grief, from both students and some teachers, if the normal field trips and concert/ plays continue to be a victim of the dispute. BE SAFE

If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re travelling on March Break, make sure you come back safely. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re planning to fly out of town, the Canada Safety Council advises you to visit www.travel.gc.ca to check for travel advisories and warnings and adjust plans accordingly. More than likely, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be on the road. If so, the council urges you to â&#x20AC;&#x153;buckle up, stay alert, and drive defensively â&#x20AC;&#x201C; familiar messages, but they are as important as ever during March Break road-trips.â&#x20AC;? And pay attention. Watch the road ahead and minimize distractions by putting away electronic devices while behind the wheel. Plan your route so you know where you are going before you leave home. While you may be in a hurry to get away, resist the urge to speed and weave in and out of traffic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Driving erratically really wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get you to your destination much faster, but it does increase your chances of being seriously injured or killed in a collision,â&#x20AC;? the council says. While on vacation, enjoy yourself but remember that your personal safety is your responsibility. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t accept drinks from strangers and avoid going to unfamiliar places alone. And donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t post photos or status updates on your social media accounts that indicate you are away on vacation. Just a little advice that could prevent a lot of hurt. Have a happy March Break. Hopefully, everyone will be feeling refreshed when we go back to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;normalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; March 18.

LETTER

Scandals show Senate should be abolished lived for decades. Mr. Harb isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t on the voters To the Editor: The expense fraud scandal involving Liberal and Conservative Senators reinforces the NDPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s consistent message: the only way to fix this cesspool of patronage and greed is to get rid of it. It is embarrassing that nationally-known and respected journalists like Pamela Wallin and Mike Duffy are being investigated for billing taxpayers for tens of thousands in unjustified expense claims. If they were EI or social assistance claimants, these highly paid pals of Stephen Harperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s would be charged criminally. The embarrassment is especially acute here in Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke. The Ottawa Citizen reports that Liberal Senator Mac Harb claims his primary residence is here for the purpose of claiming $21,000 yearly for a housing in Ottawa, where he has

list here, and almost no one has ever seen him in the neighbourhood. And elsewhere, the Citizen reports, he lists his residence as Ottawa with no mention of the house in Westmeath he claims is his home when he bills the Senate. I hope Mr. Harb, Mr. Duffy and Ms. Wallin will be the subject of door-to-door searches like unemployed people claiming EI now have to endure thanks to Stephen Harper. And I hope they will be subject to the same penalties if they have been found to be cheating. Brian Dougherty Former Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke NDP candidate

TomaHawks: A bad idea or merely political correctness? To the Editor: Once more we had a case of political correctness run amok. I am referring to the now defunct name of Ottawa’s professional basketball team that was to be called the TomaHawks. It was a bad choice to start with because it altered reality and that in itself raised eyebrows as somehow being racist. If anything the misspelling of the term was inappropriate. The correct spelling is tomahawk and that is what should have been used ... not a bastardization of it. The term tomahawk comes from

the Algonquian word tomahak, which by itself denotes a utensil used for cutting. It was not the aboriginal people who changed the word, it was Euro North Americans who altered the word in describing a metal type of axe rather than an original simple stone and wood implement. These same Euro North Americans massed produced tomahawks and they became prized trade items. While it is true that tomahawks were frequently used as weapons, of much more im-

portance they were utilized as simple tools, ceremonial objects, decorative items and symbols of leadership. Some were altered further to incorporate smoking pipes and when used as such, they sealed alliances or treaties between different groups and that included Euro North Americans. In a nutshell, we must blame Euro North Americans for creating something more sinister than it really is. Now when it comes to the Ot-

tawa professional basketball team that wanted to use an altered version of a tomahawk into a TomaHawk, I’m sure Dr. James Naismith, who invented the game and was born in the Almonte area, did not envision dunking as part of the game he developed. If he were alive today, he might have suggested leaving dunking to Krispe-Creme or Tim Hortons. But the use of the word tomahawk he just

might have approved of. I say this because he was a member of the faculties of both Harvard University and the University of Kansas and the latter has, as its sports moniker the Jayhawks. I wonder what the politically correct social scientists would do with that? Thomas Charbonneau Arnprior

Don’t industrialize rural neighbourhood To the Editor: Politicians don’t have an easy time of it, do they? They have to represent the interests of their constituents and do the best they can for the majority. That’s the way a democracy works. Certainly the McNab-Braeside Council isn’t having an easy time of it. I have been following this Braeside Quarry expansion application process, because I have friends who will be affected. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for development, innovation and progress, but this expansion plan sounds like something from before the Industrial Revolution. Putting a heavy, polluting industry on top of the region’s only groundwater source, exposing children to (potentially) cancer-causing chemicals, destroying property values because anyone with any sense would never choose to live near an asphalt plant, as well as the chewing up of the roads due to all the heavy truck traffic - well you get the picture of what this Council has to contend with.

R0011954788

CONFUSING

And the studies they have to read are complex, confusing and incomplete. And Miller and the planner keep saying the studies have been OK’d and accepted and they are fine; but they are not prepared to answer any questions which might reveal the flaws. They won’t let the peer reviewers answer people’s questions. So Council is working hard, but is the deck stacked against them? I’m glad it’s not me having to strike a balance between citizens and corporations. However, when so many people are going to be adversely affected by this industrialization of a rural residential neighbourhood, I have to wonder what the longevity of any politician voting in favour of this insane project would be. Jim Ryan Carleton Place

Thanks for a true act of kindness on the road To the Editor: Sue: On stormy Feb. 27 my car spun out of control on White Lake Road, leading me in a ditch stopped by a pole. A passing lady driver stopped her car, phoned for help and remained with me until help arrived. I regret not asking her name and her number and know only that she only recently moved to Arnprior. I will never forget her kindness. Marjorie Schooley Waba Arnprior Chronicle-Guide EMC - Thursday, March 7, 2013 9

low for floating titbits. And along open creeks and rivers, River Otters, Beavers, and Muskrats dine atop the iceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s edge. Like Beavers, Muskrats are amphibious rodents. But unlike their larger, relatives, Muskrats are closely affiliated with voles. Incidentally, Muskrats are not rats but, like Beavers, are distant cousins to them. Muskrats share with Beavers a number of adaptations for life half in, half out of water. Both have scaly, flattened tails used for steering when they swim. However, a Muskratâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leathery tail is flattened to a much lesser extent and from side to side, not top to bottom like a Beaverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Both have enlarged hind feet for propelling themselves through the water. While the toes of a Beaverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hind feet are fully webbed, those of a Muskrat are surprisingly not webbed to any degree. Instead, the hind toes bear fringes of stiff hairs that enlarge their surface area and provide resistance when the feet are pushed against the water. Like Beavers, Muskrats make frugal use of oxygen when swimming. This is particularly important during dives. To conserve oxygen underwater, their heart rate slows in only a few seconds to a fraction of its normal pace â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from 310 beats per minute to a paltry 54. This and other adaptations allow these aquatic rodents to stay submerged for up to 20 minutes! Muskrats do not hibernate and usually spend winter huddled in groups inside lodges built from mud and cattails and other plants. Unlike Beavers, sticks are not used in those structures. Many spend the winter in dens dug into muddy banks, which are much preferred over constructed lodges that require constant maintenance and have the problem of plunge holes in the ice freeze over.

Check your fire alarms, batteries when you spring ahead EMC news - It is once again the time of year when most people are getting excited about the impending end of winter and coming of spring. It is also the time (this Sunday, March 10 at 2 a.m.) to set clocks ahead an hour to give ourselves a little more daylight each and every day. At this time the Fire Prevention Office of the Arnprior Fire Department takes the opportunity to remind everyone to change the battery in their smoke alarms and test them for proper

function. The Ontario Fire Code requires each residence to have a working smoke alarm in sleeping areas and every level of the home. Smoke alarms should also be maintained and replaced in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. The Arnprior Fire Department also recommends that carbon monoxide detectors be tested and batteries changed as well at this time.

Carbon monoxide detectors should also be maintained and replaced in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. On Saturday March 9, at 6 p.m., the emergency siren at the Arnprior fire station will be sounded as a test and also for a reminder to the

residents of Arnprior to test their smoke alarms and change all batteries. “For the safety of all in your home, please use safe fire practices and have working smoke alarms,” urges the fire department. “It’s the law.”

This time of year is an excellent one for viewing Muskrats, especially later in the day. They dive to the bottom of waterways and dig or pull up the lower portions of aquatic plants. These are brought to the top of the ice and devoured there, with tell-tale piles of uneaten material inevitably left behind. Although largely vegetarian, Muskrats also eat a few animals. Frogs, fish, dragonfly nymphs, crayfish, and clams appear on their menu. I have watched Muskrats eating clams. They bring a clam to the water’s surface where they cleverly bite the large muscles that hold the animal’ shells together. Once its muscles are severed, the clam opens and its substantial contents are enjoyed. If you find a pile of opened shells near the shore of a lake or river, you are seeing the work of a Muskrat. It will not be long before the ice is fully banished until next winter. Now is the time to enjoy the animals that rest or dine atop it. Especially the voles (not rats!) that live in the water!

CONSIDER ALL INTERESTS: STACK

THREE THEMES

The plan’s strategies have been aligned along three key themes - community well-being, economic opportunities and community sustainability or viability. The latter includes the stipulation that at least five per cent of the county budget be set aside for new infrastructure. The county isn’t technically required to have a strategic plan, but several county departments are, including the long-term care facilities at Bonnechere Manor and Miramichi Lodge, as well as emergency services, Ontario Works, child care and the Renfrew County Housing Corporation. Killaloe, Hagarty and Richards Mayor Janice Visneskie said her only criticism of the document was the need for a 0307.R0011963725

EMC news - There was plenty of praise for the County of Renfrew’s first-ever strategic plan, which was presented to the Feb. 28 session of county council. Entitled Strategic Plan and Council Priorities 2013-2018, the document was developed from a two-day September 2012 consultation workshop for county councillors and staff members. Renfrew County chief administrative officer Jim Hutton, who was the major author, presented the document and spoke about the seven priority strategies. Several strategies were identified during the workshop, but the document says these seven priority are to be dealt with before all others. The Group of Seven list starts with promotion of an expanded four-lane Highway 17 into Highway 417, or four-laning of the Trans-Canada Highway, through the county. The next strategies, listed in order of priority, are • enhance the (mandated) long-term asset management program; • develop a linked trail system;

• promote active transportation; • launch an economic development roundtable; • create a small business investment fund; and • foster health promotion and disease prevention programs. “We had business plans that focused on budget numbers. But we wanted to do a strategic plan. It gives focus to our staff because it includes our mission, vision and values,” said Hutton. “It tells our staff that we deliver services that we want delivered in an efficient and costeffective manner. So it gives direction and buy-in for staff, and for the elected officials it sets priorities.” Warden Peter Emon’s message in the 18-page document calls the strategic plan a “very important document in outlining the future direction and priorities for a municipality. The consultation sessions last September were very helpful and thought-provoking as we worked toward stating our priorities for the term of council and beyond.” In the same document, past warden Bob Sweet’s message says the strategic plan demonstrates council’s “leadership and commitment to improv-

Overall, Arnprior Reeve Walter Stack said the strategic plan was good work: “This is really well packaged. It’s an easy read.” Regarding the development of a linked trail system, Stack said the linkage must be made, but not at the expense of one group, while referring to such potential users as snowmobilers, ATV operators, bikers and walkers. “All those interests need to be considered,” said Stack. The document shows that action plans in 2013 include acquisition of the discontinued Canadian Pacific rail corridor, seeking partners such as the Physical Activity Network, and confirming a vision of trail links with both public and private stakeholders. The goal of this strategy is to

Ride of a lifetime for Valley senior Sherry Haaima

Sherry.haaima@metroland.com

Renfrew County Housing Corporation

EMC lifestyle – Last week, Pat Taylor realized her dream of taking a ride in a big rig. And where better to lunch following that ride of a lifetime than the Big Rig Café at Arnprior’s Antrim Truck Stop. The resident of Almonte Country Haven was all smiles upon her arrival in Arnprior Feb. 23 and expressed her thanks to all those involved in making her dream a reality. Omni Health Care owns Almonte Country Haven, and the ride came about as part of an Omni pilot program ‘Never too late … to realize one’s dream’. For Taylor, it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. “It was heavenly,” she said. “I’d been wanting to ride in a big rig for quite some time.”

Don’t make it tougher for the snow plows to do their job EMC news – Do your part to keep our highways safe this winter by travelling safely around snowplows to make it easier for maintenance crews to clear snow and ice from roads as quickly, efficiently and safely as possible. This is what the Ministry of Transportation does to keep our highways safe: • Ontario has some of the highest road maintenance standards in North America; • It uses the latest technology, such as pre-wetted salt to enhance its effectiveness, and sensors to monitor weather and road conditions so snow removal equipment can be sent out when it’s needed; • It uses technology to predict winter storms and proactively plan and deploy snow removal equipment;

• Anti-icing liquid is spread on the highway before winter weather begins to help prevent snow from sticking to the highway surface. It also improves the effectiveness of plowing operations; • Equipment may be installed at bridges to automatically spray anti-icing liquid; • The Ministry provides drivers with a tool to get information on current road conditions by calling 511 or going online at ontario.ca/trip, which are both available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This is how Ontario’s provincial highways are maintained in the winter: • Snowplowing, sanding and salting are provided by contractors who are required to meet specific standards,

specifications and performance requirements; • Their performance is monitored before, during and after a storm and if the contractors do not meet the standards, they face serious consequences; • Contractors are responsible for more than 16,000 km of provincial highways; • They use more than 1,000 snowplows, sanders and salt trucks to fight winter storms on provincial highways. Contractors are required to: • Begin plowing provincial highways when there is an accumulation of 2 cm of snow or slush; • Begin sanding or salting within 30 minutes of the start of winter weather; • Monitor the winter storm and adjust operations dependant upon the intensity and

EMC news - With the promise of warmer temperatures lingering in the forecast, people across the province are already turning their thoughts to a season filled with patios, barbecues, road trips with the windows down - and potholes. Many road users are all too aware that the harsh winter climate in the region guarantees that potholes are a regular part of spring. To help avoid costly damage that potholes can cause to vehicles, CAA North and East Ontario offers the following tips for motorists to keep in mind this spring: • Check your tire pressure regularly. Keeping a consistent tire pressure can go a long way towards minimizing pothole damage to your wheels and tires. Remember that pressure readings are most accurate before the car is driven;

driving causes the tires to heat up, increasing the pressure and changing the reading. • Don't swerve to avoid a pothole. Swerving can result in the front wheel of your vehicle hitting the pothole at an angle, causing more damage than if it is hit head-on. • Avoid sudden braking when you are approaching a pothole. Braking transfers the car's weight to the front tires, thereby increasing the possibility of damage. • If your tire does lose air after an unfortunate pothole encounter, when it is safe to do so pull over to the side of the road in order to minimize the chance of wheel damage. Always keep a properly maintained spare tire in your vehicle, and have your CAA membership card handy in case you require roadside assistance.

Hutton pointed out that the system isn’t just the abandoned CP line, but also the K& P corridor in Greater Madawaska and Admaston-Bromley, and trails in other municipalities. The idea is to use the trail system to attract people to the area and improve local residents’ health profile. Laurentian Valley Mayor Jack Wilson, who says he hasn’t been a fan of other strategic plans he has seen, called the document a good start.

cal, given the recent abandonment of the CP rail corridor, said Hutton. “That is our main transportation system, our main connection to the world, so it’s very important,” added Hutton, knowing this priority has a bearing on many economic issues within the county. Actions planned for 2013 include completion of an Economic Development Action Plan Assessment (EDIA), meeting with the Ministry of Transportation officials to review EDIA findings, and attending Team Highway 17 meetings to identify high-accident areas on the highway corridor and feasible operational improvements.

Health promoted EMC news - The seventh of the strategies in the County of Renfrew’s strategic plan focuses on health promotion and disease prevention. With health statistics that are far worse than the provincial average, the county needs to become healthier, said CAO Jim Hutton. The leader on this strategy would be the county’s emergency services department, as the county strives to reduce chronic disease levels to the provincial average within five years. Other facilitators, which are listed in the document, include social services, health units, boards of education, First Nations, and private and public donors.

Think tank presses for ‘living wage’ to bridge income gap CEOs earn average worker’s annual salary in half a day Derek Dunn derek.dunn@metroland.com

WORKING POOR

With the evaporation of manufacturing jobs in southern Ontario and federal jobs in Ottawa, more workers are forced to look at the minimum wage option. However, social democracies are built on an invisible social contract that says if the population works it should be paid enough to escape poverty; it prevents revolutions. But earning the minimum wage ($10.25 per hour) falls short by about a third what they need to get by, according to CCPA. Enter the living wage. The Kingston Community Roundtable on Poverty Reduction estimated a family in that city with two parents working full-

The CCPA also maintains that it is in the interests of municipalities to see that every worker in a given city is out of poverty. Municipalities are the ones paying for the health and law-enforcement services that come along with a poorly-paid population. They are paying it with higher taxes to residents.

ARNPRIOR'S HISTORIC THEATRE R0011950117

EMC news – The growing income gap in Canada has some groups pushing for a living wage over the minimum wage. The nation’s 100 highest-earning CEOs made - as of 1:18 p.m. on Jan. 2 - as much as the average Canadian earns in a year, according to a new analysis by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives (CCPA). It takes about half of one work day for the average CEO to earn the average Canadian wage of $45,448, the report states. The left-leaning think tank’s survey found the average salary in 2011 for the top 100 CEOs was $7.7 million; it follows a 27per-cent jump in 2010. CCPA surveys show the income gap has catapulted over the past few decades. CEOs earned 235 times the average salary in 2011, compared to 85 times in 1995. Along with the hefty salaries, there is a concentration of power in the corporate sector that is perpetuating income inequality, according to CCPA’s study A Shrinking Universe: How Concentrated Corporate Power is Shaping Income Inequality in Canada. It links the rise of the richest Canadians with a shift toward more concentrated power within the country’s largest firms. “Something dramatic happened in Canada after 1980: the top 60 firms have effectively delinked from the rest of the corporate universe, and we now see a staggering degree of concentrated power,” said the study’s author Jordan Brennan. He added that corporate and income power means the top .1 per cent is a factor driving income inequality.

time would need to make $16.29 an hour each to be considered earning a living wage. A living wage doesn’t allow families to save for retirement, children’s education or service their debt. It is merely the amount it costs to for working families to afford basic everyday things. In other words, the minimum wage reflects what employers are willing to pay; a living wage reflects what it takes to live. And the latter is in place in parts of British Columbia. The cities of New Westminister and Esquimalt are committed to paying a living wage to municipal workers. Vancouver’s largest credit union, Vancity Credit Union, SAP Labs Canada and Briteweb are businesses that do the same. A school district and two universities also have policies in place. “The conversation they’ve started with corporations in B.C. is an interesting one,” said CCPA Ontario director Trish Hennessy. “Where the minimum wage conversation is usually directed at governments, the living wage conversation in B.C. is taking place with governments, businesses, as well as civil society.” Were living wage policies to be passed in Ottawa and elsewhere, the amount paid per hour would have to be determined.

Jack MacLaren said the idea of a living wage is a good one in theory, but it would be difficult to convince most corporations to voluntarily participate. “I think it would be nice to have,” said the Carleton-Mississippi Mills MPP. He isn’t in favour of raising corporate taxes to pay more to the working poor, even though corporate taxes in Ontario they are among the lowest of any North American jurisdiction and are lowest they have been in many recent decades. He fears corporations will move to another area, though the vast majority need to be located in the province to do business here. Carleton economics expert Justin Paulson agrees with MacLaren that the idea is impractical. The minimum wage is the best way to go for a couple of reasons. “Bumping up the minimum wage is the best way to deal with it. If the goal is a living wage for all workers, it has to be across the board,” Paulson said. He added that a lot of companies – not the large corporations with well-paid CEOs – have very small profit margins. To pay workers at a corner store more money, for instance, would simply mean higher prices are passed on to consumers. That would lead to inflation. Still, a significant bump to the working poor would be a way to increase consumer spending and re-circulate wealth – since the ultra rich tend to not spend as much as others.

Minor baseball return eyed for Arnprior, indoor camp begins

TOWN OF ARNPRIOR

EMC sports - The Renfrew Minor Baseball Association (RMBA) is trying to revive the sport in Arnprior. The RMBA has acquired the Arnprior Baseball Association, which ceased operations last season. In an effort to revive baseball in Arnprior, the Renfrew association is helping to organize a new executive and will oversee baseball operations if teams are fielded this season. Those interested in helping to get baseball back on the diamond in Arnprior can contact RMBA president Peter Vander Ploeg at pca.ploeg@sympatico.ca for details. “Basically, we need to build a solid foundation of quality individuals committed to the long term success of baseball in the town of Arnprior,” said Vander Ploeg. “The loss of baseball leaves a big void in the sporting community and we want to help fill that void.”

NOTICE OF THE PASSING OF A ZONING BY-LAW TAKE NOTICE that the Council of the Corporation of the Town of Arnprior passed Bylaw 6197-13 on the 25th day of February, 2013, under Section 34(18) of the Planning Act, 1990. AND TAKE NOTICE that any person or agency may appeal to the Ontario Municipal Board in respect of the By-law by filing with the Clerk of the Corporation of the Town of Arnprior not later than the 27th day of March, 2013, a notice of appeal setting out the reasons for the appeal and accompanied by the prescribed fee required by the Ontario Municipal Board. The prescribed fee is $125.00 and must be made payable to the Minister of Finance. Appeal forms are available at the Town Hall during regular office hours or from the Ontario Municipal Board website at www.omb.gov.on.ca. Only individuals, corporations and public bodies may appeal a by-law to the Ontario Municipal Board. A notice of appeal may not be filed by an unincorporated association or group. However, a notice of appeal may be filed in the name of an individual who is a member of the association or the group on its behalf. No person or public body shall be added as a party to the hearing of the appeal unless, before the by-law was passed, the person or public body made oral submissions at the public meeting or written submissions to the council or, in the opinion of the Ontario Municipal Board, there are reasonable grounds to add the person or public body as a party. An explanation of the purpose and effect of the By-law and a key plan are attached. The complete By-law is available for inspection in the Planning Office during regular office hours, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.

Registration flyers will be distributed to Arnprior area schools in the coming weeks with sign-up dates and locations. The Renfrew executive is heading into its second season with the addition of new members. RMBA saw increased registration last season in the Tball, 3-pitch, minor and major divisions. The association is anticipating this year’s registration will exceed last year’s numbers. Some new initiatives this year include a first-ever indoor spring training camp that will run for four weeks. It started Feb. 28. The goal of the camp is simple. Give returning players an opportunity to learn some new skills in a controlled environment. As players enter the Minor Division, they will face hardball pitching for the first time.

The camp will let new players get used to the speed of the pitches and pace of the game in a practice format helps reduce anxiety when the season begins in May. The association had some success last year with its hardball teams and felt that some early training would benefit all players later on in the season. The executive had been discussing the idea for some time and felt it could help transition new players into the hardball divisions and build on the skill set of returning players. Renfrew’s first registration date will be March 9 at the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre from 9 a.m. to noon. Every player from last year is encouraged to tell at least one friend to come out and play baseball. If that happens, there could have an explosion of new players, says executive members. “That’s the sort of problem we love to have.”

EXPLANATORY NOTE The Council of the Corporation of the Town of Arnprior passed Comprehensive Zoning By-law 4990-01, which applies to the entire Town of Arnprior, on October 29, 2001. The implementing zoning amendment would rezone the lands from Highway Commercial – Exception Two (HC-E2), General Industrial (GM) and Environmental Protection – Exception One (EP-E1) to Highway Commercial – Exception Six – holding (HC-E6-h) and Residential Reserve (RR) to permit the development of multi-density residential housing units and the future commercial development. The holding (-h) symbol on the HC-E6 zoning will prohibit development of the lands pursuant to an approved site plan, ensuring the appropriate layout and suitable servicing is provided to the Town’s satisfaction, and addressing such issues as traffic impact, stormwater management, streetscape design and archaeological resources. The lands are subject to a concurrent application for Official Plan amendment. The zoning by-law amendment will not come into full force and effect until such time as the Official Plan amendment has received approval from the County of Renfrew. The subject lands are described as Part 2, Plan 49R-12671, and Part of Lot 2, Concession C and Part of Lot 2, Concessions C and D, as shown on the attached key plan.

ADHS bows out after drawing top seed at OFSSA john.carter@metroland.com

EMC sports – It was a learning experience for the Arnprior District High School senior boys basketball team at the Ontario AA senior basketball championship tournament this week in Richmond Hill. The Redmen were seeded 12th out of 16 teams in the tournament, but had the bad luck of drawing top seeded Academie Mere Teresa (AMCT) of Hamilton in its first game. Arnprior was defeated 80-51 by the big city school Monday. However, ADHS made a game of it with a second-quarter surge after falling behind 22-8 in the first quarter. The Redmen outscored their highly regarded rivals 23-22 in the second quarter to go into the second half down 44-31. Arnprior kept close to the Hamilton school being outscored only 12-10 in the third quarter, but their opponents pulled away in the late going for the 29-point win. Andrew Macauley led the Redmen with 16 points. At press deadline, the Academie had reached the final of the tournament, defeating fourthseed Bishop MacDonell Catholic High School of Guelph 64-61 in the semi-final. They will face third seed Mother Theresa of Toronto, which edged second seed St. Basil of Sault St. Marie in the other semi-final In its second game, Arnprior suffered a let-

down, falling 68-29 to the tournament’s sixth seed, St. Christopher of Sarnia. St. Christopher built up 16-6, 39-18 and 58-27 leads on the way to the win. Mike Shoveller led Arnprior with nine points. Meanwhile, the East region’s other representative, 10th seeded LaSalle of Kingston, defeated ninth seed Eden High School of St. Catharines 53-45 in its first game. Lasalle then fell to the tournament’s surprise team, 14th ranked Ste. Famille from Mississauga 48-41 (Ste. Famille then lost to AMCT in the quarter-final). Arnprior team members were out in front of the Metro store Saturday, raising money to help pay the costs of attending the tournament. Head coach Phil Moore said he would be telling his players to play hard, but most of all enjoy the experience. It’s been more than 30 years since an ADHS senior boys basketball team participated in the provincials, and that was before it had to qualify through an EOSSA tournament, he noted. Moore said he was delighted with the support the team received from the community in its fundraising drive.

85-29 in the final Renfrew County league game of the abbreviated schedule. Arnprior has a 48point lead at half time. Mike Shoveller led the Redmen with 21 points. ADHS is scheduled host St. Joseph’s today (Thursday) at 3:30 p.m. in the Upper Ottawa Valley high school title game. In junior action, ADHS edged Bishop Smith

51-36 Feb. 28. Will Ruddy and Evan Schriver led Arnprior with 11 points each. The two teams were to meet again on Wednesday in semi-final action at ADHS (past press deadline) after the game Monday was cancelled because of a power outage at the school.

Former Packers enjoy strong playoff runs John Carter John.carter@metroland.com

DIANNE RODGER/SUBMITTED

Former Sens captain meets youngest fan One of Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newest residents, four-month old Eliza Rodger, had a fun day at the recent Hockey Helps the Homeless event in Ottawa. She met Laurie Boschman, the first captain of the modern-day Ottawa Senators. The one-day tournament, which had amateur hockey players taking to the ice with members of the Ottawa Senators and Toronto Maple Leafs Alumni Associations, raised $116,000 for local organizations that help the homeless. Elizaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dad, Andrew, is the resident writer for the NHL Alumni Association.

EMC sports â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Arnprior Packers have been ousted from the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League playoffs, but a couple of their former skaters are playing key roles on their new teams. Former Packer star Taylor Collins scored the go-ahead and clinching goals in the third period Feb. 28 as the Ottawa Junior Canadians defeated Ottawa West 4-2 to win their Metro Division semi-final four games to two. Collins also assisted on the gameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first goal. He had five goals and six assists in the six-game series, in which the regular season division champion Junior Canadians rebounded from a 2-1 deficit to win the series. In the first game of the division final, Ottawa edged Clarence Creek 5-4 as Collins picked up another assist to maintain his lead in the divisionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s playoff scoring race. Another former Packer, Mitch Parker, scored one of Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goals, giving him five playoff points. Matt Couvrette, who backstopped Arnprior to the Valley division title last year, picked up the win in goal for Ottawa. Clarence ousted defending champion Gatineau 4-3 in the other Metro semi-final. The fourth-place Beavers took a 3-0 lead over second-place Gatineau in the series, before the squad that ousted Arnprior in the Metro-Valley final last year rallied with three straight wins of its own.

ever, Clarence came back to upset Gatineau 3-1 March 1 in game 7. If the Junior Canadians win the Metro Division it appears as if they will face Renfrew Wolves in the next round. Former Packer Casey Doner scored a hat-trick Sunday as Wolves took a 7-4 win over league regular season champion Perth, putting them up 2-0 in the best-ofseven series. Dallas Farr, who was briefly a Packer early in the season, also scored for Renfrew and goalie Matt Gagne, another former Packer, albeit briefly, picked up the win in net. Game two in Renfrew produced 231 penalty minutes. A wild second period featured six goals and seven player ejections, including five as a result of a brawl 3:04 into the period. Renfrew, fresh off sweeping Arnprior 4-0 in the semi-final, won game one of the final 5-3 in Perth. Game three of the series is Wednesday in Perth (after press deadline) and game four is this Friday in Renfrew at 8 p.m. Game two of the Ottawa-Clarence Creek Beavers was also set for Wednesday, with game three this Saturday, March 9 at 7:15 p.m. at the Brian Kilrea Arena. The defending EOJHL champion Casselman Vikings topped a stubborn Akwesasne Wolves squad â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but only 1-0 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in the first game of the St. Lawrence Division final. The Athens Aeros turned back the Gananoque Islanders 4-1 to open the Rideau final.

team and all the participants. “See you next year.” She called it a “great, great day … we are so pleased … simply awesome.” Forsyth came up with the idea of a ball hockey tournament one day when trying to think of something to add excitement to the final days of what has been a long winter. The TOSH parking lot was an ideal location, as it has enough room to handle two games at the same time, she noted. Ten teams competed on the TOSH parking lot, five in a Staye House di-

vision and five in the TOSH division. The top teams in each division then clashed for the right to become the ball hockey tournament’s first champion. Arnprior Special Olympics ball hockey coach Lorne Clark and a team of volunteers helped the TOSH staff run the event. “They were a great help,” said Forsyth. Teams suited up five players and a goalie at one time. To prevent ringers, players were not allowed to score more than three goals in a game. And to prevent injuries, sticks had to stay below the waist (no slapshots).

U10 racers finish regular season with flair Anne Lefebvre Calabogie Ski Racing Club

EMC sports - Calabogie Ski Racing Club’s speedy athletes have wrapped up the regular season races, with championships right around the corner. The U16 gang participated in the Art Tommy Memorial Super Combined on Feb. 23 and 24 at Mont StMarie, Quebec. In a Super Combined race, racers complete a Slalom run and a Super G run, combining finesse with swiftness. The times for each race are added for the total score. On Feb. 23, Chris Pepin of Kinburn went all out on both runs but wasn’t able to finish. Aylen Ferguson of Carp laid down two great races for 17th place. Gabrielle D’Aoust of Glenburnie

sped to 29th overall. Chris Pepin came back for more on Feb. 24, putting down two solid races to finish 27th. Aylen raced to 25th with Gabrielle in 38th. The U10 group raced in their final regular season race, a Kombi at Camp Fortune on March 3. They finished with flair. All of these 7- to 9year-old racers have put their hearts and effort into their training, and have steadily and rapidly improved as the season has progressed. Alex Wroe of Burnstown ripped up the course and podiumed with a season-best fourth-place ribbon, while Jeremy Van Grunsven of Odessa carved right in behind to snag a fighth-place ribbon. Wyatt Campbell-Brunke of Renfrew was a top 10 man again, speeding into ninth place. Nicholas McDermid of Burnstown

skied into 19th place. Carson Lefebvre of Calabogie left it all on the hill, coming in eighth after the first run and disqualifying on the second after tangling with a gate. Thys Blok of White Lake wrote himself a similar story, with a disqualification on the first run but a time good enough for 13th on his second run. The girls posted respectable results as they get better each day: Louise Stonham of Arnprior sped to 14th, Nicole Duff of Pembroke pulled off a 25th place and Carly Alexander of Carp laid down two solid runs for 27th. March is Championship month. All of the age groups will end the winter with these final races: U14 and U16 were March 2 and 3, with the U14s off to Provincials March 14-16; U10 and U12 race March 16 and 17.

Pancakes, fundraising and math focus for Arnprior, Calabogie schools EMC lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; February found Renfrew County Catholic School Boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Arnprior and Calabogie schools working on many projects, including mathematics and fundraising, as they also began the liturgical season of Lent. At St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Catholic School in Arnprior, students, parents and community members celebrated Shrove Tuesday with a School Council Pancake Supper Febr.12. â&#x20AC;&#x153;More than 350 people enjoyed pancakes, waffles, sausages and beans,â&#x20AC;? principal MaryLise Rowat reported. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were thrilled with the turnout and positive vibes.â&#x20AC;? During the pancake supper, the school highlighted some of the math work students had done as part of a Math Collaborative Inquiry Learning project. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The gym walls were turned into a gallery of student math group work,â&#x20AC;? principal Rowat said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Activities ranged from graphing independent reading data in Grade 6 to solving complex problems involving fractions. The goal of this project is to enhance student-led, student-driven problem-solving from Grades 1 to 8.â&#x20AC;? St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s School also joined John XXIII students and staff to celebrate Ash Wednesday mass at St. John Chrysostom Parish, Rowat said. John XXIII school celebrated Shrove Tuesday with a pancake snack, which principal Heidi Fraser said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;was put on by our hard-working School Council. Our gym was transformed into a restaurant where the students were able to eat their delicious treat while chatting with friends.â&#x20AC;? The Ash Wednesday mass was celebrated by Father John Burchat.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;He reminded us that during Lent everyone is called to give, fast and pray,â&#x20AC;? principal Fraser said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our annual Lenten journey at John XXIII includes raising money for our sister school in Antonci, in the Dominican Republic,â&#x20AC;? Fraser added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We believe Lent is a perfect opportunity to practise almsgiving and share with those less fortunate than ourselves. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This year we will be collecting our change to purchase shelves for the school. Last year we helped purchase a computer for the school. The only one they have.â&#x20AC;? FOOD DONATIONS

Meanwhile, at St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Catholic School in Calabogie, principal Jody Weller reported that students collected 173 food items for their annual Christmas food drive for the local food bank. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was a very robust contribution,â&#x20AC;? principal Weller said. As an incentive, the staff agreed to be â&#x20AC;&#x153;piedâ&#x20AC;? in the face, Weller added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a school community, we set target increments of 100. With this collection, three lucky students were selected to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;pieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Miss Cunningham, our Grade 2, 3 and 4 teacher.â&#x20AC;? St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s School in Arnprior has been raising funds for the Free the Children initiative to help improve living conditions for children in developing countries, principal Rowat reports. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We collected pennies throughout the first two weeks of February and ended up donating 10 full bags of pennies to the cause. This equals clean drinking water for life for 10 people.â&#x20AC;? The students also held a fundraising event

on Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day, Rowat reported. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As part of our year-long theme of loving unconditionally, we sold â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Love isâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; buttons. Slogans included: Love is growing; Love is here; Love is pure; Love is cure,â&#x20AC;? she said. All proceeds go to the Free the Children project. A group of students also will attend the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We Dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; conference in Gatineau on April 29 as part of their Free the Children participation, Rowat added. Mathematics has been a main academic focus at St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in Calabogie, principal Weller said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;St. Joeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is one of seven schools in the RCCDSB that have been selected to have math coaches. Lynn Denault, co-ordinator of curriculum for RCCDSB, has been working with students and staff on various mathematical strategies and inquiry skills,â&#x20AC;? Weller explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel the process has helped to deepen our awareness and use of mathematical problemsolving skills and increased the use of accountable â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;math-talkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in the classroom.â&#x20AC;? St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s has purchased iPads and an Apple TV (a digital media receiver for audiovisual content), principal Weller said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the start of the school year, our staff discussed how the iPads could be included in our classroom instruction. A common objective is that they very easily are able to capture concrete evidence of student thinking and can readily engage them in their own learning process. As a team we are encouraging our students to see and use the iPads as creative tools.â&#x20AC;? The Calabogie school also hosted a literacy cafĂŠ in February, Weller reported. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The gymnasium was beautifully decorated

with a display of student artwork to create a poetic and warm setting. The evening showcased students as they presented and performed their favourite literary pieces, either individually or in groups,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Students wore their â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Sunday bestâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and served light refreshments and tasty sweets to parents and friends,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The purpose of the event was to highlight our efforts in reading, writing, and public speaking - all with particular focus on fluency, vocabulary, accuracy, and comprehension,â&#x20AC;? she explained. Meanwhile Fraser said that John XXIII continues to have high academic expectations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The staff and students are proud of our accomplishments with respect to our latest ranking in the Fraser Institute Report. It is quite an achievement to be ranked number one in the province.â&#x20AC;? John XXIII got top marks in the Grade 3 and Grade 6 EQAO assessments for the 2011â&#x20AC;&#x201C;2012 school year. CREATIVE WORKSHOPS

Fraser says the arts also are an important part of the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s instruction. In March, Alvaro De Minaya will be giving creative music workshops that focus on Latin percussion instruments, she said, and the school will hold its â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Love of Artâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; show in April. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Local artisan Lesley McMann comes into the school to work with all classes to create various artworks that comply with grade level curricular expectations and are then put on display like a real art show for our school community,â&#x20AC;? Fraser explained.

Cool St. Joe’s concert

Students complete another Dominican mission Abby Hall Jaguar Journal

The Dominican Republic Experience is an annual mission trip to the municipality of Yamasá, bringing medical supplies, hard working bodies and open hearts. This year’s Dominican Republic team of Grade 11 and 12 students from both St. Joseph’s and Bishop Smith high schools departed Feb. 14 after a year of fundraising and preparations. The journey to the D.R. is highly contested by many students. It begins with an application process at the end of Grade 10, in which all applicants must demonstrate a clear commitment to helping people in many ways. This help is often rooted in volunteering in local charities but also includes a great deal of work in our Parishes, church communities, municipal events, or even local sports teams, as well as participation in our own school community. The applicants must be able to demonstrate a true willingness to make a difference in the lives of others. Once selected, the team fundraises through bakesales, jewellery and art shows and community projects, raising enough money to purchase medical supplies to deliver to the local hospital in Yamasá.

Over the past five years alone, $150,000 of medical supplies have been delivered to the D.R. through the hands of students. The D.R. team also attends regular retreats throughout the school year, preparing themselves emotionally and spiritually for the experience. But the D.R. Experience is so much more than our students helping others. This trip, in fact, is often responsible for changing the lives of the very people who go to help. Sonya Bergin, a member of this year’s D.R. team explains “just hearing about the past experiences some students have had, and how life changing it was for them, that’s what motivated me to experience it myself.” Many team members this year have similar motivation, having witnessed the changes in older students or older brothers and sisters. When the D.R. team arrives, they were to have faced a busy schedule. To meet the people of the Dominican Republic and experience the culture, the students stayed with local families in the town of Yamasa. They visited the schools and hospitals in the area, and to add some joy, the students also painted houses fun colours for those who cannot afford to do so themselves. But, of course, a big part of their stay focused on the delivery of medical supplies to

Cheeseburger picnic at John St. Pub Mr. Lahey and Randy of television’s Trailer Park Boys get a warm Ottawa Valley welcome from Carrie Curry of Renfrew. The pair met with fans after their appearance Feb. 25 at John St. Pub in Arnprior.

The award-winning Ottawa-based blues band MonkeyJunk consists of Steve Marriner (vocals, harmonica, keyboards, guitar), Tony D (lead guitar) and Matt Sobb (drums).

Top blues band to pay Arnprior John Carter john.carter@metroland.com

The John St. Pub announced this week that the popular, award-winning Ottawa blues band will be performing at the establishment on Friday, April, 12. The band, which won the 2012 Juno Award for Canada’s best blues album, will take to the stage at 9 p.m. John St. Pub’s Jimmy Xidous notes that the band was won an incredible 15 Maple Blues Awards in its short almost five-year existence. He advises that the band’s Arnprior gig will be a general admission event, with seating and standing to be firstcome, first-served. He recommends that all ticket hold-

ers arrive for 7 p.m. to get the best seating and standing selections. Everyone must be at the event prior to 8 p.m., he adds. Those who would like to eat at the pub should arrive at 7 p.m. Tickets are on sale until April 11 for $25 for advanced tickets or $30 at the door on April 12. Tickets are nonrefundable unless the show gets cancelled. Advanced tickets are available at the John St. Pub or Steve & Dennis Restaurant. MonkeyJunk features Tony D on lead guitar, Matt Sobb on drums, and Steve Marriner on vocals, harmonica, keyboards, and guitar. For more on the band, visit the website http://monkeyjunkband.com.

Auditions for Stone Fence Theatre musical celebrating hippie influx EMC entertainment – In its 10th anniversary season, Stone Fence Theatre, the Ottawa Valley’s heritage theatre company, is producing an all-new original musical called There’s Hippies Up the Line! by Ish Theilheimer and Johanna Zomers. The show, which will be directed by Chantal Elie-Sernoskie of Barry’s Bay, opens in July for a home season in Eganville and Killaloe before going on tour to Barry’s Bay, Renfrew, Pembroke and elsewhere in the Valley. Although much has been written about back-to-the-landers and the ‘hippie’ movement, There’s Hippies Up the Line! takes a very different tack. It looks at the relationships that developed between the people moving ‘back to the land’ in the late ‘60s and early ‘70s and the Ottawa Val-

ley people who became their neighbours. Using a number of narrators, the show looks at this period of time from different points of view. Narrators include old locals wondering what’s become of things, young locals trying to decide whether to move out or stay, young hippies living through startling changes in their lives, and some old ones looking back. Theilheimer, who moved to Killaloe in 1974, and Zomers, who grew up on a farm in Brudenell, were among the group that founded Stone Fence Theatre in 2002. They have worked together on projects since the 1980s. See Hippies Page 56

Bruno has been waiting at the Arnprior Humane Society shelter for two years to be adopted into a loving family.

Bruno still looking for a forever home EMC lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Two years is far too long for any pet to be in a shelter. But thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the reality for Bruno, a Bull Mastiff mix, who has not found a home to call his own despite the best efforts of the volunteers at the Arnprior and District Humane Society. The Arnprior and District Humane Society offers a temporary stay for many animals until they can find a forever home. Most dogs are eventually adopted, some quickly and some not so fast. Unfortunately for Bruno, the wait has gone on and on. He was found two years ago on Highway 17 between Arnprior and Renfrew as a stray. There is no history to indicate whether Bruno has ever had a loving home. Despite his unstable past, he is a sweet loving dog with lots of energy and playfulness. He obeys several commands. Should Bruno be adopted, it is advised that it is to a home with no children or other pets, because he was never properly socialized as a puppy. Bruno is not a big fan of the outdoors, but he does enjoy supervised walks. He would be suited to a home

FUTURE SHOP CORRECTION NOTICE

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused our valued customers.

IAN STUPP Okon has had another 45,000 requests for help. Can this, or is this happening in Canada! Canadians currently own a total of eight million dogs and cats. According to Statistics Canada, there are approximately 3.5 million dogs and 4.5 million cats in the country. About half of all households have at least one pet. To my knowledge nothing exists in Canada to help unfortunate families feed their pets. However, there is an organization called The Farley Foundation, which was established in 2002 by the OVMA (The Ontario Veterinary Medical Association) to assist people in need of veterinary care for their sick or injured pet. There is no direct link to the foundation. So for those in need, please speak to your veterinarian for assis-

A 3-year-old Samoyed show dog named Cruz who competed in the prestigious Westminster Kennel Club dog show died four days after the event that is held every February in New York City. According to his owners, Cruz was in Colorado competing in another dog show when he began coughing up blood. The dog was rushed to a veterinarian, but died later that day. No official cause of death was determined, but his symptoms resembled those of a dog who had ingested rat poison. Even if Cruz was intentionally poisoned, it would not be an unprecedented act. Back in 1895, eight dogs were poisoned the morning before a competition. In 2010, a man was accused of drugging a Siberian Husky at the Wheaton Dog Show in Illinois, where his girlfriend was showing another dog in the same category. He was found not guilty of the crime. Ian owns and operates Wags & Whiskers Dog and Cat Grooming and Puppy Kindergarten at 118 John St. N., Arnprior. He can be reached at 613-623-6200 or wagswhiskers@ hotmail.com.

The United States Department of Agricultureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) has a program in place called the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), a program established for families with low incomes and those hardest hit by the recession. The following is quoted from their website: â&#x20AC;&#x153;SNAP offers nutrition assistance to millions of eligible, low income individuals and families and provides economic benefits to communities. SNAP is the largest program in the domestic hunger safety net. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Food and Nutrition Service works with State agencies, nutrition educators, and neighbourhood and faith-based organizations to ensure that those eligible for nutrition assistance can make informed decisions about applying for the program and can access benefits, FNS also works with State partners and the retail community to improve program administration and ensure program the integrity.â&#x20AC;? With overwhelming demand for help, Marc Okon implemented a Pet Food Stamps initiative in New York City to help out 12,000 individuals in need of pet assistance.

Advertorial

Miller Won’t Pay! We need to put a few facts on the table about the Miller Braeside Quarry Expansion Application process. To be clear, this expansion and industrialization needs a zoning change from aggregate reserve to aggregate extraction and an Official Plan Amendment because McNab/Braeside does not allow for a permanent asphalt plant in this township. Miller wants to expand, to industrialize with permanent asphalt plant, concrete plant, wash plant, machine shop, offices, fuel and equipment storage etc. in the quarry. This development requires scientific studies to be

done to determine if there will be negative effects on the community. Then these studies are reviewed by other scientists to point out flaws or omissions made by the company’s experts. Who pays for all this? The proponent of course; he is the one who is going to make the profits from the development. But here’s the thing: the peer reviewers’ job is to point out flaws, but eventually to accept the studies. That is their job! That doesn’t mean any of those problems have been solved or that anything has changed, but they

have pointed out the flaws. Nothing has changed! So Council can look at those issues and weigh those concerns carefully. But Miller and the County planner, Bruce Howarth, are telling Council the studies have been accepted by the peer reviewers, therefore there are no problems! They don’t even have to read the peer reviews, or hear from the peer reviewers. Council, knowing how controversial this development is, has asked the public to submit questions during Council’s own investigation to prevent a log jam during public meetings. So the

public has been sending in questions since November, to be answered by the peer reviewers, of course, the ones who have critiqued the studies. But Miller won’t pay! Obviously they don’t want people to know the defects. Those important questions won’t be answered. This newspaper has quoted some Council members as making light of this process, of how a few people might be affected. Reality is that the whole township will be affected – negatively. Let’s look at some numbers. Well over 100 families sur-

round the expanded quarry – Usborne, Carmichael, Golf Club, Hazelwood, Riverview, Toner, River Road etc. Then there is a really important number, 20, the number of children very close to the permanent asphalt or concrete plants. An experienced, respected hydrogeologist has said that the water in the whole Braeside Ridge will be affected both in quantity and quality; it is only a matter of time. That adds another 300-400 homes. Many of these homes are large, beautiful homes overlooking the Ottawa River, homes bringing a lot

of tax revenue to this township. But many people on the ridge have already experienced difficulty selling their homes. One real estate agent, who tells all her clients about the expansion plans on the ridge, found people immediately eliminated the area as a choice. Internet sources say well over 50% reduction in property value in the vicinity of a permanent asphalt plant, more if there is no municipal water source. If our water is gone, there is no other water source; the homes are unsellable. The quarry pays comparatively little tax. We did a

Advertorial Financial Impact Study in 2008 and calculated Miller Braeside Quarry taxes from Municipal Property Assessment Corporation, (MPAC), figures, approximately $3550.00. We found that the quarry paid no more than a large home on the ridge overlooking the Ottawa River. That will change but only marginally. Assessment will come from new buildings, but since these have to be removed when the aggregate is all mined and the area rehabilitated, those buildings will have to be portable – not a huge investment there. Here are some more numbers. People think the Township gets a large tonnage fee for aggregate shipped. This quarry has produced an average 117,000 tonnes/ year to a maximum of 155,000 tonnes, over the last seven years paying the Township at $0.06/ tonne just $7,020.00/year. The Miller traffic study says that won’t change. It costs approximately $100,000.00/ km just to pave a Township road. How many years of Miller aggregate fees would it take to pave Campbell Drive after trucks hauling asphalt, concrete or aggregate destroy it? (answer: 86 years, not taking into account increased costs of paving over that period).

being of its citizens. The most effective way to carry out this mandate is to deny the applicant its proposed Official Plan amendment, allowing a permanent hot mix asphalt plant at this site OR Expert Process: I would strongly recommend against the Council’s further consideration of the applicant’s Official Plan amendment without an additional process involving stakeholder experts, officials and the public. This would identify problems, include additional modelling, and provide answers to important questions. The proponent pays. Some of Dr. Cole’s comments: • Neither the Miller study

nor the peer reviewers discuss the risks to the residents of emission of carcinogenic substances from the asphalt plant; • No discussion of the effects of emissions of benzene, formaldehyde and many PAHs (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons); • No cancer risk assessment showing estimates of longterm exposure to carcinogens; • No discussion of the additive risks associated with mixtures of carcinogens such as those emitted from a hot mix asphalt plant; • No long-term monitoring or modelling data needed to estimate cancer risk to residents exposed to carcinogens for years if a permanent plant was located here; • Inadequate documenta-

tion in the Miller study; • An astounding failure to meet standard practice such as providing even a single map or diagram showing actual locations of sources of emissions or distribution of contaminants; • The emission factors Miller used in modelling emissions are given a very low rating by the Environmental Protection Act. The Miller scientists failed to report this fact! • Weather data, so important in modelling emissions was neither local nor current. Miller uses Ottawa data stating that the Ottawa Airport, the source of the data, is only 20 km away rather than over 60 km. They used data from the 1990s, nearly 20 years old! • No monitoring data – no

emissions testing or ambient air monitoring that could be used to evaluate the accuracy of the computer modelling exercise. I think you’ll agree that living near an asphalt plant is no laughing matter. Neighbours have reason to be concerned for themselves and their children, the most vulnerable to chemical pollution.

fected. This is a rural, residential neighbourhood.

Our hydrogeologist is preparing his water report now and we will share that with you also. Below are two maps of the expanded quarry and the location of the permanent asphalt and concrete plants. Some neighbours are less than 200 m away from loud noise and noxious fumes. Whichever way the wind blows, someone will be af-

McNab/Braeside’s next special meeting to discuss this expansion is on Tues. March 12, 3 pm, (public can listen and take notes only.) Committee meeting at 7 pm, public questions afterwards.

Also you’ll see an area of alvar which the company has said they will protect, as it is a globally rare habitat. But Miller is requesting that the whole area be zoned for aggregate extraction; hard to preserve a natural heritage by grinding it up and turning it into asphalt.

For more information on any of the above, visit FACT-MB Inc. website, www.fact-mb.org

• Neighbours of Braeside Quarry

We want the Miller Braeside Quarry to operate and expand, we just know that industrialization is much too dangerous. A temporary asphalt plant in this quarry caused adverse effects in neighbours. A judge ruled Miller guilty of nuisance, trespass and negligence in a court of law in 2011. So we know the air will be polluted from a permanent plant. An accidental spill of petroleum-based chemicals will destroy our water. One litre of gasoline contaminates one million litres of water. An asphalt plant fire would be a disaster. Remember the Oshawa asphalt plant fire just recently in the news? So we have hired our own peer reviewer, an award winning, internationally respected scientist, Dr. Henry S. Cole, to review the Miller Air Quality Study. He has reviewed between 30 and 40 of these studies in his career and he has never read one that was worse! Here are Dr. Cole’s recommendations to McNab/ Braeside Council: Denial: The Township has a mandate to protect the public health and well-

Mary keeps her Lenten sacrifice between herself and God EMC lifestyle - As far as Father was concerned, Mother had taken this Lent business too far. Her giving up meat herself every Friday all year was one thing, but taking it off the menu for everyone during Lent was another kettle of fish altogether. No meal was complete without a good platter of meat on the table, according to Father. And now Lent was here, whatever that meant. And Father thought Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s idea of not only giving up meat on Fridays for everyone, was right up there with asking a farmer to give up chores, but now she was pressing everyone to give up something they loved for the entire few weeks of Lent. She suggested Father might want to give up his pipe. As if to show his defiance, he put a match to it, which was already going at full steam ahead. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will be good discipline for the children,â&#x20AC;? Mother said, and she asked us to think long and hard at what each of us could sacrifice, all in the name of Lent. Mother said if we wanted, we could give up something and not tell anyone else what it was. It would be our secret between us and God. Well, my sister Audrey wanted everyone to know she was giving up butter. Audrey loved butter, especially since Mother started adding a few drops of yellow colouring to what came out of the churn. Before that it was as white as the driven snow! She was going through her religious phase, and she fell right in with Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s orders that we five children think long and hard at what we could give up, all in the name of Lent. My brother Earl wanted everyone to know he was giving up whittling. Audrey thought it had to be something you ate. So Earl switched to turnips. Emerson, who said he was giving up pie, lasted one meal. So he switched to gum. His chances of getting a package of gum were pretty slim back in the 30s, so that wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t much of sacrifice for Emerson. Everett loved dill pickles and he told everyone within earshot he wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be taking an-

other dill until Mother told him Lent was over. Now, I loved my food. I ate every meal as if it was my last one on earth. I hated headcheese and blood pudding, but this time of year our supply of both had pretty well run out. I had no idea what I could give up that wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seriously affect my mealtimes, and couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come up a thing. I took my problem to my older and much wiser sister Audrey, who was always able to come up with a solution to just about anything that ailed me. She suggested I give up either butterscotch discs or baloney, both of which she knew I loved with a passion, ever so much more that licorice pipes and humbugs that Mr. Briscoe from Briscoesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; General Store often thrust in my hand. Little did he know, I either used them to bribe my brother Emerson, or tossed them into the nearest shrubbery on the way home. I had no taste for either. Both of them always made me think of Cascara, which Mother had great faith in, and whether we needed it or not, we were often made take a heaping spoonful â&#x20AC;&#x153;just in case.â&#x20AC;? In case of what I had no idea! I knew perfectly well if I gave up baloney or butterscotch discs, I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t last a week. I asked my sister Audrey if God would mind if I kept my sacrifice to myself. If it would be diluted if I gave something up, and told no one. Audrey said she would think about it. Finally she said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I see no reason why you have to tell anyone. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s between you and God.â&#x20AC;? I said a silent thank your for this bit of information. I decided there and then to give up licorice pipes!

PENNY TIME

Ever since the Canadian Government announced it would phase out the penny from Canada's coinage system, we have been collecting pennies under the fundraiser ‘Penny Time’. This in memory of fellow co-worker and friend of seniors, the late Penny Lamendeau, ‘PJ’, who passed away April 27, 2012. Feb. 4 was the date that the Royal Canadian Mint stopped distributing pennies and though the cent will remain Canada's smallest unit for pricing goods and services with no impact on payments made by cheque or electronic transactions, only cash transactions are affected. Moreover, pennies can still be used in cash transactions indefinitely with businesses that choose to accept them. But if you wish to no longer carry or worry about the penny, we request you donate your collection of pennies to ABMSHP in memory of Penny Lamendeau. If you wish, you can drop of your pennies with the receptionist at Towne Centre, Unit A1, 106 McGongial Street West.
