EMC news - Some Arnprior residents could actually see their property taxes go down this year. However, many are facing a modest increase after Arnprior council set its tax rate Monday. While the town’s tax rate is going up slightly, thanks to a last-minute decision to add $100,000 to reserves, it could well be balanced with a drop in the county and school rates. Council approved the town’s 2013 budget after three public meetings held the previous week.. “The new budget is based on a 1.13 per cent municipal tax rate increase,� said town CAO Michael Wildman. “But when you net out the increases and

decreases at the municipal level, at the county level, and at the educational level, in fact, you’ll notice a slight decrease in the overall taxes.� Per $100,000 of property assessment, the net decrease is about $6, he added. However, most propertyowners will see an increase in assessment this year, so that could mean an increase in the bottom line amount. That varies from property to property. While Arnprior residential assessments have risen an average of 1.46 per cent (about $204,000) this year in the first of a four-year equal increase, waterfront properties have seen a drop in value on average 6.3 per cent after several years of steep increases.

Owners Erin, above, and Chris Proulx wanted to support the shelter and planned to microchip the four-month-old pup anyway, so visiting the clinic was a natural choice. Appointment numbers were down this year but support for the humane society and Pet Adoption weekend at Pet Valu was strong, especially important at the moment as the Arnprior shelter is over-populated and not accepting new animals.

EMC news – McNab-Braeside council is looking for the highest and best use for its land and they’ve enlisted FA Capital Lands Inc. to help them identify just how to achieve it. FA Capital Lands’ Bruce Firestone and company president Susan Anglin made their pitch to council April 16. Council passed a motion to accept the

proposal at the cost of $15,000 plus H.S.T to create an economic development template for the township. The company will create an economic development strategy report that will outline a land use and township positioning strategy that will enable the municipality to capitalize on its natural assets to begin to develop its full economic potential.

Retaining youth key to sustainability, Why allow housing if quarry area Firestone tells M-B councillors to be industrial, residents ask Continued from front

John Carter

“To do that - to be sustainable - you have to keep your young people. You have to give them economic opportunity,” said Firestone, a real estate developer, former sports team owner and university professor who is also well known as founder of the Ottawa Senators. “McNab-Braeside has vast potential,” said Firestone. “You need to trade on its strengths in tourism, agriculture, festivals, events, lifestyle and entrepreneurship.” Every time you have a visitor come to the township, they will likely spend $100 in the township, with that number being much higher in urban centres. In Miami, it’s $249, said Firestone. The township will need to attract investment and new residents with a focus on more homegrown and transplanted entrepreneurs. “You need to bring to McNab-Braeside people who will call it home,” he said. “We’d like to come and work with your staff, council and mayor to identify highest and best uses for things we think could come to the next level,” said Firestone. “We really like McNab-Braeside but to realize the potential of this township we have to look at some of the things we’re doing in Ottawa that might have relevance.” He noted Bruce Lazenby’s revamp of Invest Ottawa. “It doesn’t take that many entrepreneurs to really change McNab-Braeside,” he said. Firestone went on to say the township has tremendous underutilized assets. A focus on development should always include a leisure element. “Every project you do, no matter how prosaic it should be, should have a leisure area,”

EMC news – If Mcnab-Braeside wants an industrial complex in the Braeside Quarry, why did they allow so many homes to be built in the area? That was one of the main questions asked at an inpromptu residents meeting at the Arnprior Golf Club April 17. About 75 people turned out to hear Pat and Stephanie McIntyre lead a discussion on the pros and cons of the quarry expansion proposed by the Miller Group. The McIntyres, who live near the quarry, urged their neighbours to speak their minds at the public meeting May 6 into the Miller rezoning application. They urged presenters to be polite, respectful and reasonable, “as we want council on our side.” Using a power-point presentation, Pat McIntyre argued that it is obvious that the size of the operation Miller is proposing is not compatible with its residential neighbours. The air emissions, noise, blasting, traffic and potential for water contamination that will come with a permanent asphalt plant and greatly increased aggregate extraction will significantly impact the residents enjoyment of property, he maintained. So why did the township allow people to build homes in the area if it is seriously considering approving the expansion, he asked. If the township wants the industry and the province wants the aggregate, “we should

At their April 16 meeting, they recommended festival organizers develop their own logo to

have been told we shouldn’t be building here,” he said. He said the Sand Point area has its own natural and heritage features that deserve protection. However, council has never treated the area as special as it does Burnstown, he added, There was a general feeling expressed at the meeting that township council is in an unenviable position when it comes to the application. The process has already been expensive for the township and its municipality, noted one resident. If it turns down Miller’s application, it will almost certainly have to fight an expensive battle in front of the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB), he said. Therefore, it’s tempting for council to approve the application and let the residents decide if they feel strongly enough to fund an appeal to the OMB. Dr. Randy Whyte urged people at the meeting to appeal to their neighbours and friends to speak up at the public meetings and continue to lobby councillors. The project affects a large area, he said, noting the wind blows from the quarry toward Arnprior. “Now the battle steps up ... we’re reaching the precipice,” he said. McIntyre agreed, saying the residents may not win the fight, “but at least we can say we did all we could,.” A list of concerns about the quarry expansion was circulated at the meeting, with residents urged to bring them up at the May 6 public meeting 6-10 p.m. at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church in Braeside.

Pay-as-you-go model to be used, no internal borrowing Continued from Front

As a result, those taxpayers could see a drop in their tax bills. The town’s budget for 2013 has been set at $8,062,648, with $6.9 million in revenue coming directly from taxation. General government has been budgeted at $1.263 million. Fire and policing will eat up $2.58 million, with policing taking $1.94 million and fire about $554,000 of the budget. Public works received $1.431 million worth of the pie while parks and recreation was allotted $1.225 million. Contribution to the reserves is an incredibly important aspect of the budget and council has agreed to put $1.2 million in it. “This year was all about building up our reserves,” said Mayor David Reid. “We wanted to get our reserves up to where we wanted them to be.” Council went into its final budget meeting April 18 with a zero increase tax rate, but Reid successfully argued this is the year to put some extra money in capital reserves. “It is prudent to do this now,” he said, maintaining that the infra-

structure needs are increasing and council has room in its budget to allocate the $100,000. That’s not likely to be the case next year, he said, noting the town will not enjoy the $234,000 savings in policing costs it received this year from the OPP Renfrew-Arnprior merger. With OPP officers getting eight per cent arbitrated wage increases for 2014, policing costs will be on the rise, he said. As well, the recreation and library agreements are up with McNab-Braeside, so there is no guarantee the town will be receiving that money, he added. “It (2014) will be a very challenging year.” SAVING FOR A RAINY DAY

Reid said boosting the tax rate by 1.4 per cent with the $100,000 allotment to reserves “will take the pressure off next year.” “So we’re saving for a rainy day,” said Coun. Lynn Grinstead. Reeve Walter Stack agreed the extra allocation made sense, noting the town is developing a 10-year plan that will set priorities and ensure

council puts thought into how the money will eventually be spent. “I think we need to be aggressive … to show the taxpayer we’re going to address some of these (infrastructure) issues,” he said. Coun. Dan Lynch asked how much the increase would mean to the average taxpayer. An increase of $20 or more on top of the rise in water and sewer rates could result in some “ticked-off” taxpayers, he said. Wildman said there are too many variables to come up with an average increase. He noted the addition to reserves would bump the tax rate up to 1.43 per cent, which is still below the two to three per cent the increase has been in the past few years. “So you’re still doing quite well,” he said. Reid said he felt any increases caused by putting extra in reserves would be acceptable to most people and pointed out the fact the average increase in assessments across Renfrew County is up 17 per cent compared to Arnprior’s 6.8 per cent means the town’s ratepayers will get a break in their county and school taxes this year. Reid said council is adopting a pay-as-yougo policy, which requires the town to be stricter with funds and contribute more than it spends. “Historically there has been a practice, and I’m not saying it’s wrong, of internal borrowing,” said Wildman. “What happens is that money gets contributed to reserves, but it gets back out the same year and gets put towards funding a project. “The way we are going is we won’t be bor-

rowing from ourselves so we won’t be paying ourselves interest anymore and, therefore, charging that to the ratepayers,” he added. Council should begin reviewing projects and discuss which project has priority within a month or so, said Mayor Reid. LANDRIGAN TO BE PAVED

Some of the upcoming capital projects include a full rebuild of Landrigan Street. Town hall will be refurbished to allow better access for those with special needs. New electronic record storage will improve the speed in which information can be shared with people. There were some difficulties getting the budget together. “I think there was a lot of internal housekeeping to do on the finances just to get a hold of some of the old practices and clean them up and be accurate with the information we were providing,” said Reid. Many senior staff members have also only occupied their position for about a year so there was a lot of adaptation. Despite the issues, staff managed to create the cleanest, easiest-to-read budget council has ever seen, said Wildman. “The budget process this year was a pleasure,” said Reid. “Staff did a phenomenal job and the information was there to make some good decisions and recommendations from staff were strong.” With files from John Carter

EMC news - The Mississippi Veterinary Service in Pakenham became an attraction for passersby on County Road 29. On April 23, a female moose stood tamely in a field next to the clinic. People pulled over and drove into the clinic’s parking lot to capture a photo of the wild moose. “He’s been a around for a couple of weeks now,” said the Mississippi Veterinary Service staff. The animal has been traveling between the Cedar Hill area and the clinic lot. According to locals, this is not the first appearance the moose has made (it is likely the one seen in the area last year), but it always causes amazement due to its sheer size. There is a possibility that the moose may cause a traffic accident, by either crossing the road at an inopportune time or by distracting drivers. However, clinic staffs aren’t concerned about their safety.

Beware water heater sales pitch, resident warns John Carter john.carter@metroland.com

EMC news – Don’t get taken in by aggressive water heater pitch-men, warns an Arnprior man. Richard Dunlop says he and his wife were approached by a young salesman asking to see his water tank. Shortly after he ordered him off his property, he received a call warning him he could be fined for refusing an energy audit. “Don’t you believe it,” said Dunlop. “They were just trying to intimidate me.” While that doesn’t work with Dunlop (he says he has kicked four water heater salesmen off his property in the past two years), he worries that some seniors could get bullied into taking a new water heater and the contract for service that goes with it. “I have some older people in my neighbourhood and I don’t want them to be ripped off,” he said. A woman up the street was taken in and now she is being double billed, said Dunlop. “It’s terrible.” He said he looked into the company and found out that it is facing 63 charges relating to its business practices. And while its representative said he was from Ottawa, the company appears to be Toronto-based, said Dunlop. “I told them go ahead and charge me (for refusing the ‘energy audit’), but it will be you facing a 64th charge,” he said. He said the sales people seem to be getting more and more aggressive. “They don’t take no for an answer … and they walk right in your house,” he said. “You really have to be firm with them.” Renfrew OPP community service officer Janice Sawbridge said local police haven’t had any complaints recently, but have in the past about aggressive water heater sales people. “You have no obligation to talk to these people,” she said, adding that if they refuse to leave, “don’t hesitate to call the police.” Meanwhile, the Homeowner Protection Centre (HPC) has launched a new website (waterheaterdoortodoor.com) to help encourage the province to pass legislation it has introduced on door-to-door water heater sales tactics as soon as possible. The website helps to inform Ontario consumers of their rights when faced with door-to-door water heater salespeople. Bill 55, the Stronger Protection for Ontario Consumers Act, doubles the cooling-off period for consumers to 20 days, among other features. However, the concern of the consumers group is that until the legislation is passed, the intensi-

ty and frequency of bad practices that victimize Ontarians, including the elderly, newcomers, and those on fixed incomes can continue unabated. “HPC created this site to give Ontario consumers a voice and platform to encourage government to enact changes that offer protection from door-to-door water heater sales,” said Michael Lio, Homeowner Protection Centre executive director. “This website serves an important purpose, since more often than not people aren’t aware of their rights when it comes to door-to door salespeople. This site contains valuable tips on what to look for when a salesperson comes to the door.” Lio went on to say that “complaints about the deceptive sales tactics used by door-todoor water heater salespeople in Ontario have jumped to the number-two spot at the Ministry of Consumer Services.” Since 2010, the number of complaints about door-to-door salespeople has been on the rise. The HPC study indicates that without the necessary information to assess new choices, and without safeguards and penalties to address market misconduct, homeowners who rent their water heaters are left to pay higher prices and endure poorer services. HPC encourages each Ontario MPP to support the quick passage of Bill 55 to protect consumers from unethical door-to-door sales tactics. Warren Heeley, president of the Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Institute of Canada, has also applauded the Ontario government for taking action against unscrupulous door-to-door sales tactics that have been occurring within Ontario for a number of years. This situation has become increasingly problematic for consumers, specifically with those who are unaware of the ramifications of purchasing a major appliance such as a furnace or water heater at the door, said Heeley.

Vandals shatter window, ruin clothes John Carter john.carter@metroland.com

EMC news – The owner of an Arnprior store feels betrayed and frustrated after her business was attacked by vandals. The large front window at In Trendz on Elgin Street was smashed in the wee hours of April 7, causing almost $10,000 worth of damage to the store’s merchandise. Store owner Helen Lecompte reports that the window was shattered with such force the glass flew almost to the back of the store. As a result, much of her newly-acquired summer stock of clothes is sprinkled with glass shards, making it impossible for her to sell it. “It was one big mess when we showed up,” she said, explaining that she was called by police about an hour after the 2:30 a.m. incident. Fortunately, a staff member lives nearby and came over to protect the premises from further harm. Two boys out late saw the smashed window and ran to Macs Convenience Store to phone police. Lecompte said the store alarm appears to have scared the culprits off, as it doesn’t appear much was stolen. However, a great deal of her merchandise was damaged. Despite staff scrutinizing the clothes with flashlights to try and find the glass, there is probably still much left in many items, she noted. Safety and liability reasons prevent her from selling the clothing, she said. As well, other items such as purses are marked and cuts. So she has bagged up to $10,000 worth of merchandise to send back to her insurance company. “What a waste,” she said. The attack has hit Lecompte on several fronts. “It’s tough enough being a small business owner,” she said, noting she has lost valuable sales, had to tackle a major clean-up and faces increased insurance rates.

“I must have vacuumed this place 12 times,” she said, adding that staff suffered cuts and had to wear protective gloves for the first few days after the window was broken. “We’re still finds little shards of glass around the store,” she said. The window was finally replaced April 16. For the week before that, Lecompte had to keep re-assuring people she wasn’t closing and eventually resorted to Facebook to spread the word she is still in business. Perhaps the worst part is realizing that the culprits are customers who she thought were friends. “I’m extremely disappointed in them. They’ve proved they’re just punks who care nothing for this town,” she said. “Something like this doesn’t just hurt me, it hurts the town of Arnprior. Every time there is a theft or vandalism incident downtown, insurance rates will rise, she said. It increases the cost of doing business, so prices will rise, she added. “So if they are customers, they’re just hurting themselves,” she said. Lecompte said she opened the store a year and a half ago “for local kids so they wouldn’t have to go to Ottawa.” She stocks clothes, hats and skateboards popular with teens. “I cater to youth,” she said. “This is their store. I got a lot of praise when it opened.” She said parents should be taking more responsibility for the actions of their children. While she suspects police will charge those guilty, because they are juveniles they’ll probably get off with a “slap on the wrist.” OPP reported the incident in their police report the week after it happened but had not responded to a request for an update on the investigation as of press time. It’s been a tough month for Lecompte, who called police the week earlier to have a shoplifter arrested. She suspects she has also had some of her hats stolen and sold around town.

EDITORIAL

Standing against terrorism near and far Tragedies bring out the best and the worst in people. In the case of the bombs exploded at the Boston Marathon on April 15, the worst is painfully obvious. Three people dead, including an eight-year-old boy, and more than 140 others injured. The question of why the two brothers accused of the bombings and the gun battles that followed did it has yet to be answered, but the attack was an attempt to create terror, hurt people, sew discord and intimidate the public into changing its behaviour and even beliefs. However, as so often happens, as shown by the bombings that happen regularly all over the world, the acts of terror strengthen people’s resolve instead of shaking it. If this was one of Boston’s worst hours, it was also one of the finest. This act of terrorism did not have the desired effect, if the reactions of some of the runners following the blast is anything to judge. Many runners said they hoped to compete in the annual 42-kilometre race once again – if they qualify. Closer to home, Ottawa will play host to its own prestigious running event, Ottawa race weekend, on May 24 and 25. Following the explosions at the Boston Marathon, Ottawa race weekend organizers acknowledged that the attack made them more conscious about security surrounding the annual event,

which attracts more than 40,000 runners. But it certainly won’t stop them from holding the event. Terrorists have tried in the past to instill a culture of fear surrounding large public gatherings – for instance the backpack bombing at the 1996 Atlanta Summer Olympics that killed two people and injured 120 and the deadly attack on the Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics. But every Olympics since has simply grown bigger and better. And the athletes and the fans continue to flock to the events. Acts of terrorism are hard to predict and difficult to completely prevent. However, in North America they are rare and tend to not have a long-lasting effect on the public, except to make people security conscious, and, hopefully, more sympathetic to those who in their part of the world face terror on a daily basis. Events such as the Olympics and the Boston Marathon are international gatherings that bring us together in the friendly spirit of competition and mutual admiration. The resiliency and resolve of the fans and athletes from around the globe to continue participating despite terrorist attacks is a positive sign that we all should be standing together against terrorism and violence, no matter where it surfaces.

Web Poll LETTER

Asphalt plant doesn’t fit with township’s lifestyle To the Editor: Welcome to the municipality of McNab-Braeside, the gateway to the rural Upper Ottawa Valley. Embracing a rural life-style, McNab-Braeside is intrinsically dependent on our natural infrastructure and, as such, committed to protecting and living in harmony with environment. Maintaining rural lifestyle, values and sense of community is a priority. Celebrating and promoting our historic heritage is important to us. We are constantly reminded of who we are in the physical beauty of the Ottawa and Madawaska rivers, White Lake, our many creeks, forests, hills and glens stretching across 254 km along the TransCanada Highway running between the towns of Arnprior and Renfrew This excerpt was taken directly from the Mcnab-Braeside website; at first glance it sounds like the perfect place to raise a family, which is why we decided to move here. However, it may soon turn out to be nothing more than fiction; depending on how our elected council, decide to vote on the Miller application to construct a permanent asphalt plant at their Usborne Drive quarry. I’m not an environmentalist, a bi-

ologist, or geologist – I own two vehicles and like everyone else enjoy using our highways, especially when they’re paved versus gravel or dirt. So, yes, I realize the asphalt comes from somewhere. But I believe this application can be decided very quickly. Think for a moment of our local trades (painter, mechanic, electrician, plumber, mason ‌) and small business owners (landscaping, hair styling, bakery ‌); the moment they open for business it is their opportunity to prove that they can operate successfully and within the legal confines of their industry – if they can’t then it will certainly be a short-lived business venture – plain and simple if they willfully or neglectfully operate outside the law(s) their opportunity will have been used and exhausted.

to operate a temporary asphalt plant at the Usborne Drive quarry; during its operation they were taken to court and were found guilty of the charges against them and subsequently fined. This clearly, beyond any question shows that this location simply is not suitable for any kind of asphalt plant – temporary or permanent. If you’re still unsure whether this is a good idea or not, re-read the first paragraph, and then think what do residential communities, hiking, walking, biking, four-wheeling, swimming, safe drinking water, snowmobiling, golfing, road hockey, ice hockey (backyard rinks and the RA Centre) and simply enjoying time outside with your family and friends have in common with an asphalt plant.

THIS WEEK’S QUESTION Will the recent explosions at the Boston Marathon result in lower attendance by fans and runners at the Ottawa Race Weekend?

Thanks to the Arnprior library for feeding a hungry mind To the Editor: Re: M-B residents reading up a storm (Chronicle-Guide April 18). Having been a member of the Arnprior Public Library for a number of years, and as a resident of McNab-Braeside, it gives me great pleasure to applaud those wonderful, cheerful, ever helpful and considerate women who run the show there, to keep this one very curious mind continually supplied with books and

films of particular interest. Just this week I went to their website and did a bit of a search. They have loaned me 266 books and DVDs since Jan. 1, 2007 to date. If you need a book and they don’t have it, they will do their best to get it for you through ILL (Inter-Library Loan). For instance, I was embarrassed to realize I knew very little of J’eanne D’Arc (Joan of

Arc) a year or so ago, but always yearned to know. I received personal assistance from the Arnprior staff to obtain for me all that could be had in definitive writings and film on that beautiful Saint. Two films and two books later, along with my own copy of Leonard Cohen’s classic recording, with Jennifer Warnes, which I’ve long held to be his greatest creative work, and I have

a complete and thorough education on the profound and incredible person of Joan of Arc. So, just to say to those wonderful women at Arnprior Public Library, thank you for feeding this voracious, hungry and questioning mind. You are my heroines! Den Zegen (blessings without end). H. Wm. Tuck McNab-Braeside

Library good for township, says former member of the board To the Editor: Your article in the Thursday, April 18 issue of the Arnprior ChronicleGuide identifies me as a member of the Arnprior Public Library board. I am not a member of the library board. Your readers may remember the recent public meeting where I came out in support of the continuing out-sourcing of library services to the Arnprior Public Library. I felt at the time that I was in conflict of interest, as council was opposed to continued participation. That’s when I resigned (with regret) from the Arnprior Public Library board. I tried to make the case that the library is an essential service and an extension of our system of education. I had also participated in the expansion program at APL, and saw that facility blossom into a first-class library and the envy of many small communities in Ontario. Subsequently McNab-Braeside council decided to continue financial and management support for the Arnprior Public Library. The present McNab-Braeside representatives are Deputy Mayor Christine Blimkie and Susan Gillan. While I am sending this little note to you, I want you to know that McNabBraeside Township is receiving great support from the Arnprior Public Library. The planning committee for the Braeside Riverdriver Festival (part of the McNab Days festivities in June) is promoting a literary contest in the township through the elementary schools. This may be expanded to the high school. It’s a project that ties into the school curriculum for local history and community affairs as well as aspects of citizenship. Karen DeLuca, the chief librarian, has offered support in publicizing, promoting and organizing this effort. Hopefully your readers will learn more about this literary contest in the next few weeks.

Some random thoughts in Arnprior on a cloudy day Jim Silye Guest columnist

EMC lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; On Aboriginals: Clarence Louie, 44 years old, is the Chief of the Osoyoos Indian Band (450 strong) in the Okanagan Valley, B.C. He pulled his reserve out of poverty through diversified economic development, convincing the federal government to allow private sector investment on his reserve and over the years has attracted a winery, golf course, 5-star hotel, construction company and retail stores. They became self-sufficient in five years. In a brutally honest speech given to a large aboriginal conference, he stated: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our ancestors worked for a living, so should you.â&#x20AC;? The biggest employer he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be the band office.â&#x20AC;? The time has come where there should be â&#x20AC;&#x153;no more whining about 100-yearold failed experiments â&#x20AC;Ś no foolishly looking to the Queen to protect rights.â&#x20AC;?

He concluded his speech by stating: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The biggest challenge will be how you treat your own people. Blaming the government? That time is over.â&#x20AC;? If I had said these words, I would be called a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;racistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Maybe there is a lesson in his words for us. Obviously, he stresses economic development as the fundamental method for improving the standard of living in a community. Arnprior needs to do the same. On the development of a town square: Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve noticed that the original budget as announced in the Chronicle-Guide on Feb.14 of $107,000 has been revised to $125,000. My question is what if they start and there are cost overruns due to new revelations regarding the environment or something else, who is on the hook? Taxpayers or donors and sponsors? Now that council has agreed to beautify a park, how about the roads that lead to the park? On town notices: Has anybody

noticed that when we get a notice of application or public meeting in the Chronicle-Guide where a Key Plan is provided that it is next to impossible to read the streets. Surely the town could provide a better proof of the subject lands. On Jason Kenney, Immigration Minister: I find it hypocritical of Kenney to attack Justin Trudeau as he did in a speech in Vancouver on Feb. 17, 2013 as â&#x20AC;&#x153;not in touch with the values or the real issues that face ordinary Canadians.â&#x20AC;? Kenney said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ever run anything.â&#x20AC;? He hammered Trudeau for having zero executive experience and zero government experience. Well the last time I checked, Trudeau has been a Member of Parliament (government experience), was a teacher (ran a classroom), fundraised for charities and is a motivating public speaker. Mr. Kenney has never had a real job that I could find. At a young age

CNIB thanks its many volunteers To the Editor: CNIB has always been an organization of people helping people, and nowhere is that more evident than in the incredible work of our volunteers.

Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re truly the heart and soul of our organization, and they do everything from producing accessible library materials, to co-ordinating CNIB events, to working with people who are blind or partially sighted right in their own homes and

he became involved in politics and for a few years was president of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation, serving as a talking head for the tax lobby group (an excellent watchdog organization I might add) and then was elected to Parliament in 1997, where he has been ever since. Somewhere in the Bible it says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;judge not, lest ye be judged.â&#x20AC;? The Minister should take heed. Now, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not a Liberal, to the contrary, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a small â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;câ&#x20AC;&#x2122; conservative, but I deplore all the negativity and personal attacks being employed by the current government. On Flahertyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget: All I can say that notwithstanding all the rhetoric (promises, promises, empty promises?) that we are on track for a balanced budget by 2015, it is hard to believe that this economic plan will help get us there. In fact it is a wasted year! This is a tax-and-spend budget. Closing tax loopholes (which in prior years were referred to as incen-

communities. In honour of National Volunteer Week (April 21-27), CNIB would like to thank its amazing volunteers. Their acts of kindness are making a lasting difference in the lives of people with vision loss and their families. Perpetua Quigley Co-ordinator of Volunteer Services, CNIB

tives or stimulus), increasing tariffs on imports and applying the HST to new areas like hospital parking (really) are all measures that will raise $1.9 billion (which is really a tax increase). These new revenue streams should be applied to the deficit. But no, the finance minister plans to spend $1.7 billion of these new revenues on new and probably vote-getting programs in conservative ridings. In my opinion, this is not fiscally responsible. On our police force: Are we being policed or harassed? Just wondering! On Justin Trudeau: His father ran on the slogan of a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Just Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, which is something that is easy for one to embrace and if you listen to the young Trudeau you can detect references to feel-good phrases that capture a vision and vision sells, so you Conservatives out there forget the personal attacks and concentrate on keeping your promises. On Arnprior: I love this town!

Children and asphalt donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mix To the Editor: It always amazes me when I hear yet again that someone thinks we need a permanent asphalt plant in the Braeside quarry. Perhaps if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think it through, it might seem plausible, but any permanent development in our beautiful McNab-Braeside needs careful, thoughtful consideration, not just a quick glance. Children and asphalt emissions. Those two just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mix. But if you think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OK to have a permanent asphalt plant here, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exactly what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got! PAHs or polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons are â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;non-threshold contaminantsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, in other words there is no concentration of PAHs that is known to be safe. PAHs are known carcinogens. You got it; these cancer-causing chemicals are emitted when asphalt is produced. An odour is called a chemical spill; when you smell it, you are breathing in those chemicals. But there are many other noxious chemicals here, hydrogen sulphide, benzene, toluene, naphthalene, formaldehyde, the list goes on. One study I read found that children were 300 times more likely to have a brain tumour when living within the influence area of an asphalt plant. Even particulate matter (quarry dust) is really harmful to children, not to mention all the other chemicals. So do we need a permanent asphalt plant here? We can get asphalt as close as Carp or Petawawa, either end of the valley. Modern trucking will haul asphalt six hours and still come out hot and clean. See COMPANY Page 11

odour even invades every room of the house. The temporary asphalt plant caused adverse effects in quarry neighbours from 2009â&#x20AC;&#x201C;2011. The courts convicted Miller of nuisance, trespass and negligence in November 2011. In legal terms, Miller owes the neighbours a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;duty of careâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, a standard of care that would be exercised by any reasonable operator of an asphalt plant. The loss of neighboursâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ability to have enjoyment of their property, to have to suffer adverse effects, is known to Miller because of the judgment against him by Deputy Judge Rod Sauriol, Nov. 4, 2011. Yet Miller is proposing to put a permanent asphalt plant even closer to neighbours than the temporary one was and at grade level, not even in the bottom of the quarry where walls and distance might reduce effects of emissions. This is negligence.

Remember an asphalt plant is just a very large piece of equipment, not a building, so it adds no tax value for the Township. Jobs? Seasonal and very few. A permanent asphalt plant would be convenient for a private company but has no advantages for the development of our beautiful Township. There are more than 20 children here, counting grandchildren who come to stay regularly. But let me introduce you to Arnie, Marilyn and Jason (16 months) and a sibling for Jason due this week (real people just not their real names). This young couple waited to have a family until they had purchased their home in the country. They bought in good faith, only to discover the seller had failed to disclose the fact that there were plans for a permanent asphalt plant in their back yard. They were stuck. When the temporary asphalt plant was located in the quarry, Marilyn suffered from debilitating migraines from the odour. That plant was much further away from them than the planned permanent one. Another neighbour simply had to rent elsewhere because their children couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sleep for coughing and the noise. People who live in the country expect their children to be able to play outside in the fresh air and sunshine. That cannot happen here. The

A look at the winter of Redpolls, all types of them EMC lifestyle - I think it safe to say that winter has finally relinquished its icy grip on the land. The snow is gone, Tree Swallows have staked claims on nesting boxes and Spring Peepers fill the evening air with shrill chirps. Despite spring’s arrival, artefacts from the past season are still visible. Melt water pools adorn fields and forests, and northern birds are once again passing through, this time on their way not south but north. Currently redpolls are still visiting local feeders. They are brown goldfinch-sized finches with a black bib and a name-giving red cap on their forehead. Males sport a reddish breast that gets redder as the pale feather tips wear down while winter wanes. Their fine bill is ideal for plucking small seeds from alder cones and dried heads of Evening Primrose

Michael Runtz Nature’s Way and other wildflowers, and niger seeds from birdfeeders. As is typical of all finches, redpolls travel in flocks. Flocking provides more eyes to watch for danger, and thereby affords each flock member more time for foraging. Flocking provides us with one great advantage: it allows us to see different types of redpolls in close proximity to each other.

MICHAEL RUNTZ

Greater Common Redpolls are huge compared to their southern counterparts. The Hoary Redpoll is mostly white. This winter was the best I can remember for not only seeing large numbers of these tiny finches but also for seeing the full assortment of their types. Most of the birds are Common Redpolls, which nest in Ontario no farther south than the northern edge of the great muskeg belt known as the Hudson Bay Lowlands. Many readers reported see-

ing very pale redpolls among the Commons. These are Hoary Redpolls, a species that only occasionally appears this far south. Some Hoary Redpolls are larger and whiter than other Hoaries. These are the Hornemann’s Hoary Redpolls, which nest in Nunavut and Greenland. They rarely come this far south, but this winter a few have shown up in flocks of

Common Redpolls. There is yet another type of redpoll, one of which I recently saw at the Macnamara Trail feeders. It is a giant among redpolls, nearly twice as large as a Common, and much darker overall with thicker streaks on the sides. The bill is huge and overall it looks more like a House Finch than a redpoll. These are Greater Common

Redpolls, which have come all the way from Nunavut and southern Greenland. There is much debate as to what is a true species and what is only variation within a species of redpoll. Currently two species are recognized: Hoary and Common. However, some researchers feel that there is only one true species and others suggest that there are as many as six. Genetics is being used to clarify the picture and I suspect that in the near future we will see some changes to the taxonomy of these fascinating little birds. Redpolls are still passing through our area, so watch for the northern ones. It may be many years before we see this diversity again, and by then at least one may have given a new identity!

School to hold rain barrel sale EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Local residents can help two good causes - John XXIII students and the environment â&#x20AC;&#x201C; by buying rain barrels next month. The Arnprior school is accepting pre-sale orders for a Truckload Rain Barrel Sale scheduled for Saturday May 11. At John XXIII school from 2-5 p.m., rain barrels will be sold for $55 each with funds raised supporting the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

ongoing fundraising efforts. Given the severe drought experienced in the Ottawa Valley last summer, the school council at John XXIII thought this would be a unique opportunity to combine fundraising efforts with providing the community with a chance to purchase a quality rain barrel at a reasonable price.

Rain barrels capture and store rain water collected from roofs through downspouts. They provide chlorine-free and fluoride-free water, which is ideal for flowers, vegetables, lawns, shrubs and trees. Collected water has a number of other uses including washing cars, cleaning floors, laundry and more. These many uses can provide cost savings and conservation opportunities for every homeowner, especially those who pay to have water trucked in, use a well or have a water meter in-

stalled. The environmentally friendly products were once used to transport fruits and vegetables and have been refurbished and repurposed to offer years of reliable service as rain barrels. All orders must be placed in advance at www. RainBarrel.ca/JohnXXIII or by calling 613622-5609. Orders must be paid in advance by bringing cash or cheque to John XXIII School, 75 Edey St. For more information, please contact Anne Hermans at 613-622-5609.

Arnprior family grateful for Hospice Renfrew’s kindness To the editor: Terminal, the most devastating word you will hear after cancer. Life no longer becomes a matter of quantity but of quality. Such was the case for us when my husband, Glen Bresson, was diagnosed with stage four bladder cancer in November 2009. Life had treated us well up until then. With God’s blessing we had three beautiful children, four healthy, rambunctious grandchildren, a comfortable home, good jobs and a loving supportive extended family and friends. Not that there were a few bumps along the way, nothing is ever perfect, but for the most part we were happy living the life we built and shared together as husband and wife. Glen lived, worked and played with such passion. Family was always first and foremost. He was a loving father, firm but fair, fearlessly protective and with a penchant to playfully tease. A romantic husband and my very best friend, In work he embraced new challenges and threw himself into it 120 per cent. He enjoyed sports and played hard. His hobbies were music and photography; both of which

he turned into second income jobs. He also took up cooking and the bigger the challenge the more he enjoyed it. He loved to entertain and see people happy and enjoying themselves through food, music and conversation. Social and family gatherings were always fun. Rest assured that before the evening was over Glen would have us laughing at his one-liners and comebacks. With his warm smile and sparkling blue eyes he made everyone he met comfortable and at ease. He just reflected that warm, down to earth persona. Such was the man that I so loved; my knight in shining armor. It was early November 2009, on a business trip to Germany and in a hospital there that he was given the news that he was gravely ill and needed to return to Canada as soon as possible. His company most generously flew him home, first class. The following week he underwent a battery of tests. The doctor’s prognosis was to work toward getting Glen a few more years of quality life. The next two years were a roller coaster ride; joy and disappointment came in waves. It seemed Glen was des-

Glen Bresson tined from the start to have every conceivable roadblock put in front of him. With multiple infections, surgeries and complications, his Chemo treatments were continually compromised. In October 2011 he developed spinal stenosis and the pain was fierce and unrelenting. We were now told cancer treatment was no longer an option and Glen was given two to three months to live. There are no words to describe the emotional impact this had. Glen’s wish was to be able to die in his own home, but because he needed 24/7care for pain management that was not an option. I could see the fear in his eyes. I can’t even imagine the devastation he

must have felt. How was I going to make his last days be the best they could under these circumstances? Because of the special care required, we were given two options; one a palliative hospital setting and the other Hospice Renfrew. Since Glen was bed-ridden, I toured both places and, after assurances that Glen’s special needs would be met, we opted for Hospice Renfrew. It had a homey atmosphere. I think Glen was thinking more of me in the decision since it was closer to home, especially in winter driving. We were told that through government funding of Hospice Renfrew, the use of volunteers and fundraising there would be no cost to us for Glen’s stay there. I so stressed wondering if this was the right decision, but as each day went by I became more comfortable as I could see Glen was settling in and bonding with the staff. The nurses and volunteers were compassionate and dedicated; their patients, first and foremost, treated with dignity and sincere warmth. No matter what time of day, if a patient was hungry or thirsty, the staff would cheerfully ac-

commodate the request. He so enjoyed his foot rubs and the sincere interest staff held as they conversed about his life. His room was bright and cheery and furnished with cozy comfort. With a large picture window, we could watch the birds and hoped to see the deer that often came around. The room was large enough to have several visitors at a time. We would lunch with friends who brought his favorite egg rolls. All our family would come and spend memorable time with Glen; cherish memories and some good laughs. He got to meet his five-month-old grand niece for the first time. I would spend hours upon hours each day with Glen and never made to feel I had overstayed my welcome. The staff at Hospice Renfrew did what they could to make me feel comfortable as well. As it was coming on to Christmas, we would watch the classic movies into the evening sipping on tea and munching on dessert. There were always scrumptious goodies lovingly made by volunteers at the Hospice. We had planned that I would stay overnight on Christmas

Eve and again on New Year’s Eve to celebrate together. The staff offered to set up a table and chairs so that our children and grandchildren, all 10 of us total, could have Christmas dinner together. We were so looking forward to this. We knew this would be Glen’s last, but we wanted to make it special for him. Alas that was not to be. Arriving about noon on Christmas Eve, Glen was already failing. I called for our children and grandchildren to come to be with Glen in his last hours. Mysteriously a single deer looked into the window that afternoon, but Glen could not see it. Did she know he was dying? When he breathed his last breath, the Hospice staff was there for us. In silent comfort they understood our need to grieve but were there for us to lean on them for strength. Our family is grateful that Glen’s last days were “quality days.” We thank the staff, the volunteers and the generous giving of donations from the public and businesses that keep Hospice Renfrew doors open to those in need. God bless you all. Diane Bresson Arnprior

Valley industries threatened by rail removal, group warns

to more useful tasks such as frontline policing.” Gallant explained that because the proposed change is administrative, legislation may not be required. “Also, since the federal government is paying the provinces to administer the registry, the federal government will be able to apply the savings to directly reduce that part of the federal deficit that was caused by the expensive, wasteful Liberal long-gun registry in the first place,” she said. Gallant called the Chief Firearms Office (CFO) a costly position that is federally funded, with a provincially appointed individual whose purpose is to enforce and administer the Canadian Firearms Registration System for restricted and prohibited firearms. The CFO provides no policing on “the street” to deal with guns and gangs, she pointed out. In the case of Ontario, the CFO seems to be accountable to no one, she complained. “Efforts to request transparency as well as accountability have resulted in the federal government correctly pointing to the fact that as a member of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP), the CFO answers to the Province of Ontario. When the office of the OPP Ombudsman was approached, its position was that as a provincial public servant seconded to administer a federal program, it was not the OPP’s responsibility to be accountable for the administration of a federal program.” By consolidating the CFO position with the Federal Commissioner of Firearms, costly duplication would be eliminated and clarity to the administration of the regulations would be restored, she said. The actual licensing of a restricted or prohibited firearm should administratively be no different than licensing an individual to drive a motor vehicle, where background checks to license owners is the responsibility of the RCMP, said Gallant.

EMC news – Renfrew-NipissingPembroke MP Cheryl Gallant is trying to have the Canadian Firearms Registration System for restricted and prohibited firearms privatized. The long-time foe of the longgun registry has introduced Motion 439 in the House of Commons that would rescind agreements with the provinces and privatize the functions of program. “Now that our federal Conservative government has fulfilled its promise to scrap the wasteful, Liberal billion dollar long-gun registry, we need to look at other ways to save taxpayers’ dollars,” said Gallant in a news release. “In addition to saving tax dollars, privatizing the functions of the Canadian Firearms Registration System for restricted and prohibited firearms has a number of other advantages,” she maintained. “It would eliminate the costly duplication of having each province managing a separate bureaucracy to administer the firearms registration system. Law-abiding sportsmen, hunters and farmers would benefit by having one set of rules rather than the provincial patchwork that currently exists.” “Additionally, by privatizing the functions, as a civilian agency, the office would become administrative and service-oriented, to the benefit of all Canadians,” she added. “In a recent expenditure analysis of criminal justice in Canada, the Parliamentary Budget Office (PBO) identified provincial criminal justice costs as the largest contributor to rising public expenditures on criminal justice in Canada. At the same time the PBO categorized firearms programs as fully dedicated to crime, when in fact the firearms registry is an administrative procedure. “By transferring administrative tasks to a service-oriented civilian agency, law enforcement professionals’ valuable time can be re-directed

TPR co-chair Terry Gibeau says if CN issues a temporary moratorium on rail lifting, it would be “major leap of goodwill in the Upper Ottawa Valley.” TPR’s letter to CN can be viewed online at www.transportpontiac-renfrew.ca. The group notes that rail service has been disappearing at an “alarming rate” in eastern Ontario. In 2011-12 CP quietly removed the Ottawa area portion of its storied former transcontinental line from Smiths Falls to Mattawa via Renfrew and Pembroke.

Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant introduces bill to privatize firearms registration.

EMC news - Transport Pontiac-Renfrew is warning that the removing of the CN rail line that goes through Renfrew County, the Pontiac and West Carleton could undermine efforts to revitalize industry in the area. The group has issued an “urgent request” to CN, asking that a temporary moratorium on rail removal that has begun in the Pembroke area. The rail removal follows on the steps of the elimination of the CP tracks between Smiths Falls and Pembroke last year. In a news release last week, Transport Pontiac-Renfrew (TPR) says “another nail in the railway coffin is evident in the Upper Ottawa Valley despite intense objection from local business, as rail service in the area continues a slow and painful death.” It reports that CN has begun rail lifting preparations for the line on the stretch that runs from Pembroke to Portage du Fort, Quebec. Non-disclosure-agreement discussions are underway for another section of the line east from Portage du Fort to the bridge at Fitzroy Harbour, it says. “Despite industry struggling to ramp up and get laid-off staff back to work, business interests relying on rail may quickly encounter the unforeseen obstacle of a loss of a valued shipping lane,” says TPR. A prime example is the Pemboke area fibre board plant, ATC Pembroke, which is planning to re-open after a fouryear recession-related shutdown. “In order for us to re-establish production and once again contribute to the community by providing jobs and economic growth, the rail is essential for the Pembroke plant,” says ATC president Fito Salman.in a prepared statement to TPR. “These actions from CN rail will have disastrous consequences in our effort to restart the Pembroke mill.” From 1998 to 2008, the line was operated by Ottawa Central Railway and grew the volume from 4,000 carloads a year to about 16,000 by 2008. The line was sold back to CN in late 2008, and the subsequent recession contributed heavily to a drop in shipping to and from the region. With indications of general industry rejuvenation underway, many large volume shippers need the option of rail to move product efficiently and cost-effectively, says TPR. Responding to the increasing concern from area business, TPR issued a plea April 16 to CN to halt rail removal

The Pembroke District of the Ministry of Natural Resources issued a ďŹ&#x201A;ood warning last Friday for parts of Renfrew County upstream from Arnprior on the Madawaska and Ottawa rivers. Warm weather and forecasted rain combined with the rapid melting of the remaining snow pack is producing increased run-off in the areas downstream from Algonquin Park, and on the Ottawa River.

Electricians protest proposed College of Trades Derek Dunn derek.dunn@metroland.com

EMC news – About 20 tradespeople gathered outside Lorne’s Electric on Madawaska Boulevard last Friday to protest a new organization that could cost them money and impose further regulations. The fledgling College of Trades, an industry-controlled body similar to those used by doctors, teachers and lawyers, would have enforcement and disciplinary powers to crack down on unlicensed electricians and others offering cheap work in the underground economy. It will be a place for disappointed customers to complain to about service above the Better Business Bureau. But Eddy Kulla, project manager at Lorne’s, said the college is less about raising professional standards than it is about getting money out of workers. “I don’t know that that’s it,” Kulla said. “People are smarter than that. You’ll always find flyby-night types. “If people do a little research and ask for a licence – we all have a licence – that should do it.” The Progressive Conservatives have joined the Stop the Trades Tax campaign on the new

He would sooner see the government reduce the 3-to-1 ratio of apprentice to journeymen to 1-to-1. It would stem the influx of foreign temporary workers, he said. Kulla is also worried that workers such as restaurant servers will find themselves facing similar fees. College office Ron Johnson says the fee is not a “tax” and questions why a smaller-government party would not endorse an industry-controlled organization. Renfew-NippisingPembroke MPP John Yakabuski and Skilled Trades and Apprenticeship Reform Critic Garfield Dunlop, MPP for Simcoe North, along with Lorne’s owners, were expected at the protest to answer concerns but hadn’t shown up some 30 minutes after it began.

EMC news – The leading lights behind the highly successful long-running It Shouldn’t Hurt to be a Child hockey tournament in Arnprior have been rewarded with Queen’s Jubilee Medals Dave and Sylvie McCormick were officially presented with the medals March 27 by Senator Marc Harb. “That’s good news, fantastic” said Arnprior parks and recreation director Glenn Arthur. “It’s very well-deserving.” He said the McCormicks have been running the hockey tournament that raises money for child victims of violence and their families for well over 20 years, Organizing the tournament is a “real husband-and-wife project” for them, Arthur noted. “They do a pile of work.” The annual three-day tournament each November at the Nick Smith Centre raises awareness and money to help the Victims of Violence Canadian Centre for missing children and its It Shouldn’t Hurt to be a Child program. The McCormicks were nominated for the medals by the Victims of Violence charity. As the tournament has grown, so has the awareness for the cause, said Arthur. The McCormicks live in Stittsville, but Dave was born and raised in Arnprior, graduating from Arnprior District High School. As he says, he still holds Arnprior “close to my heart.” Dave McCormick says he hooked up with the Victims of Violence charity in 1990. But “I and Sylvie want all to know we are not the heroes,” he maintains.

“The true heroes behind all our efforts are Gary and Sharon Rosenfeldt, the founders of Victims of Violence. Their work is the legacy.” He noted that Gary has died since the tournament started, but Sharon lives in Carleton Place. At Gary’s memorial service a few years back, it was said that “Canada just lost a hero,” noted Dave. “That is why we do what we do.” Arthur said the tournament has grown to have a large following, with about 50 teams from many different communities playing last Nov. 16-18. “It’s a great cross-section of hockey players coming together to be involved in a great cause.” The McCormicks have built up strong community partners such as Herzing College (where Dave is vice-president), VIA Rail, Giant Tiger and McEwan Homes in ensuring the tournament is a success, Arthur said. “The number of sponsors they get blows me away.” It has expanded from a men’s tournament to include women’s teams as well, and in 2012 added a kid’s hockey challenge. Once a two-day tournament, it takes up both rinks at the Nick Smith Centre for three days. The latest tournament featured four men’s and two women’s divisions, as well as challenge games between four minor hockey teams from Arnprior, Mississippi Mills, West Ottawa and Kanata. The tournament is a popular social event as well, with entertainment Friday and Saturday evenings. Dave McCormick says Arthur is deserving of many compliments for his work on behalf of the tournament. “He does a

fantastic job for the town, I hope people realize that,” he said. “If it were not for him being a Leaf fan, I would have nominated him for prime minister,” he quipped. Dave said the couple are honoured to have been chosen for the medals and pleased because it recognizes the importance of the charity their hockey tournament supports.

Saint Kitts proves good for Arnprior Golf Club give our children all the opportunities this great country has to offer.” So he put his name out to the golf community across Canada. By chance, the Arnprior Golf Club’s board of directors had a search committee looking for a new superintendent. “We never thought we’d be able to attract such a high calibre candidate as Steve Williams,” said Kevin Mulvihill, president of the AGC board and a member of the search committee, “When we saw Steve’s credentials then listened to his ideas for the course, we just knew that here was a guy who could make a significant difference.” In the end it was the combination of a small town to raise his family, a highly supportive board of directors, and a course that Steve felt he could really have an impact upon, which convinced him to give Arnprior a try. “The course is 89 years old, a great layout on a great piece of land,” said Williams. “I could tell there was huge

EMC sports - The Arnprior Golf Club at Sand Point opened its 2013 season Friday to rave reviews following last year’s successful course revitalizing by a transplant from the Caribbean. It’s a long way from Saint Kitts to Arnprior. That’s the trek Arnprior Golf Club’s superintendent, Canadian-born Steve Williams, made with his young family in tow last year when he took over responsibility to shine up this jewel in the Ottawa Valley. In Saint Kitts, a small sovereign island a few hundred kilometres southeast of the British Virgin Islands in the West Indies, Williams had overall responsibility for the championship Royal St. Kitts golf course at the fivestar Marriot Royal Beach Resort. “St. Kitts is a wonderful place to vacation and to play golf” said Williams, “but my wife and I wanted to

ity during the fall. Having all that extra material gave us the opportunity to lay wood chips well into the treeline, which has continued since early this spring. “It looks good, makes for a fairer golf course and should speed up the pace of play by making it easier to find your golf ball.” To top all of that off, last fall Williams and his team completely reimagined the golf course driving range that includes new irrigation, a fully sodded practice tee and target greens, which will be added soon. “The improvement in the golf course during last season was impressive,” said Dan Pope, an AGC director who grew up in the area and has played at the Arnprior Golf Club for over 20 years. “Even with that long drought last summer, the course never played better. “I think we’re all looking forward to seeing what Steve Williams has in store for us this year.”

They just needed proper attention.” With a successful program for the greens in place, Williams applied his considerable skills to the fairways then back to the tees. Several new tees were created, and the fairways shaped from tee to green with clear definition between rough and manicured fairway grass. He then began to address what had become a somewhat neglected and overgrown tree-line. “Trees are integral to the beauty and shaping of a golf course,” said Williams, “but the tree-line had become clogged with smaller trees and overgrowth. Opening up spaces around healthy and strategically located trees is good for the trees, for course aesthetics and for playability of the golf course. “We began to reshape the treeline last summer, and increased that activ-

Remembering the Emergency Preparedness College Jeremy J.K. Turcotte Arnprior & McNab-Braeside Archives

EMC lifestyle – On Dec. 11, 2002, a sad message on the front page of this newspaper signaled the end of an era for Arnprior. “It’s official: Emergency College leaving Arnprior.” This April marks the 10th anniversary of the closure of the old Emergency Preparedness College (EPC), the federally-owned property on Baskin Drive that had trained Canadians to defend their country for over 60 years. The EPC and its predecessors - the campus had been used by eight other organizations in its lifetime - placed an indelible stamp on the people of Arnprior. This anniversary is made doubly sad by the fact that 2013 marks the 60th anniversary of the closure of the Arnprior Air Force base – the EPC’s original function. The College can trace its roots back to an article in an issue of the Arnprior Chronicle from Feb. 6, 1941, reporting on surveyors working outside the town and the rumour of a planned aerodrome. Shovels were in the ground for RCAF Station Arnprior by Sept. 13, and on Aug. 3, 1942, the base became home to No. 3 Flying Instruction School. Airmen from across the British Empire converged on Arnprior, where, after six weeks of instruction, became qualified to teach pilots in air forces in all the theatres of the Second World War.

The school itself was not immune from the tragedies faced by its graduates. On Oct. 15, 1942, Sgt. Pilot E. Paul Misener, a student at the school, was searching for a missing plane near Watertown, N.Y., when he tried to make an emergency landing on a country road. His plane struck high-tension power lines and Sgt. Misener was killed. As the war drew on, more mishaps and more casualties were incurred at the school. Although a few barracks were built on the base, accommodations were cramped and many students were lodged in the town – a problem, since back then the edge of town was more than a mile away from the base. The Air Force also had misgivings on the quality of Arnprior’s water supply. The flying instructors’ school closed in January of 1944, and reopened the next month as the No. 1 Flight Engineers’ School, but in October of 1944 the school was moved to Aylmer, Ontario, and not for the last time was the town sent reeling from its vacancy. “With one of the finest flying fields in Canada we cannot understand why it was closed,” lamented the Chronicle that December. As the town celebrated its victories over the Axis empires, RCAF Station Arnprior stood vacant. Then in 1946, after a brief spell as home to the No. 9 Army Pay Corps the previous year, the RCAF Research Unit moved in to

accompany the new tenants: the Flight Research Laboratory of the National Research Council. The NRC spent most of the Second World War developing weapons for the Allied Powers. With the Cold War looming, superior air power over the Communists was vital; and the skies over Arnprior hummed with the endeavours of our country’s brightest minds. The RCAF detachment was closed and moved to Rockcliffe in May of 1953; the NRC moved its laboratories to larger premises at Station Uplands (near the Ottawa Airport) that July, and the skies over Arnprior were silent. But the base was not silent for long. Creeping Cold War paranoia had the government fearing for public safety, and in January of 1954 the Department of National Health and Welfare – in charge of civil defence at that time – brought the two schools together as the Canadian Civil Defence College at Arnprior, and started what would be a going concern for the town for nearly half a century. The school ran at full tilt for nearly 20 years, despite changing federal departments three times and its name to the Canadian Emergency Measures College in 1965. By the 1970s, however, the government had reduced the course load at the college to part-time and put the facility to use under the Department of Public Works as the Federal Study Centre in 1975.

JEREMY TURCOTTE

The grounds and buildings that once housed the Emergency Preparedness College on the outskirts of town have a rich history. The college was closed 10 years ago this month. When the Reagan era stoked domestic fears once more, the government became interested in preparedness against domestic terrorist attacks, and to that end was the Emergency Preparedness College created at Arnprior in 1985. But its commitment to the site was less than before: new dormitories were promised in 1988, but delayed repeatedly; the facility deteriorated, and no effort was forthcoming to improve it. Finally the government announced at the end of 2002 that it was moving the College

to the Federal Study Centre at the end of that school year, and the Arnprior campus left vacant. Local officials made appeals; court injunctions were sought; accusations of political patronage were thrown. But it was to no effect; and the buildings were torn down in 2009 to make way for the Bev Shaw Parkway. But not all the old base is silent. In 1984 the airfield was sold for the princely sum of one dollar to its current proprietors, the South Renfrew Municipal Airport, which has

invested heavily in the airfield’s improvement. And though on land the old campus lies fallow, the skies above it hum like they did in its infancy. Jeremy Turcotte is a volunteer researcher with Arnprior & McNab-Braeside Archives. The Archives is interested in obtaining any photographs or memorabilia that people have related to the College in their personal collection. Documentation is scarce and within a few more years it will be hard to find anything about it.

High school teachers back revised deal and the teacher unions, he said. Barber said the OSSTF vote supports “language designed to mitigate the imposed terms and conditions of Bill 115. OSSTF was able to present creative solutions to the government that addressed members’ concerns within the government’s financial restrictions.” Bill 115 was repealed in late January 2013. This agreement with high school teachers, said OSSTF president Ken Coran in a news release, shows “the government has committed to working collaboratively to ensure a fair, transparent and democratic process is in place for the next round of collective bargaining.” The current contracts end Aug. 31, 2014. The OSSTF voting took place April 12 to 18. Meanwhile, talks between the provincial government and the Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario to modify their contract are continuing.

EMC news – The United States government wants Canadians to pay to enter their country to help ease their financial deficit. And that isn’t sitting well with regular visitors, especially snowbirds and those who regularly head south in search of bargains. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s 2014 budget requests a study to determine the feasibility of

collecting a fee from pedestrians and passenger vehicles crossing between the U.S. and Canada by land. Whether this fee would focus on those entering or exiting the United States, or both, and how much each crossing might cost has yet to be determined. “While we appreciate the fiscal challenges faced by our friends in the United States, we would prefer

no longer able to give blood, she said. “So, I am asking each of you to please reach out to people you know who are eligible to give blood but are not currently donors. “Bring them to the clinic with you, show them how it is done and encourage them to start giving blood.” The next Arnprior clinic will be held Wednesday, May 1 from 1:304 p.m. and 5-7:30 p.m. at the Nick Smith Centre. It is being sponsored by the Rotary Club of Arnprior. To book an appointment time, call 1-888-236-6283 or go online at www. blood.ca.

Fees for many commercial goods and agricultural inspections are already charged at the U.S.-Canada border and airline passengers in both countries pay significant security fees on top of their ticket prices.

EMC news - Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation teacher and support staff members have voted 84 per cent in favour of a recently-negotiated agreement with the Ontario government. “The most important part of this new agreement is that local bargaining is now going to be back on the table, so that local issues may now be addressed,” said OSSTF Local 28 (Renfrew County) president Jeff Barber. Barber would not elaborate on what issues will be discussed with the Renfrew County District School Board, but he says new changes to the agreement include changes in sick leave and maternity leave, and the striking of a committee to address regulation 274, which affects hiring practices. Laurel Broten was the education minister

non-grata when the Ontario Liberal party used Bill 115 to implement about 400 contracts between school boards and the provincial government. On Jan. 3, Broten announced that 65 locally-negotiated agreements that were submitted by the Dec. 31, 2012 deadline had been ratified. Through an Order-in-Council the government announced, also Jan. 3, that it had “implemented” the remaining contracts for all school boards and unions that hadn’t reached collective agreements by the deadline. Since then, new Premier Kathleen Wynne has helped establish a better environment in discussions with the Province, said Barber. “The big thing was that Kathleen Wynne recognized the labour unrest and that negotiations hadn’t been handled very well by her predecessor,” said Barber. Wynne helped convene important meetings between government officials (including new Education Minister Liz Sandals)

the ground in the garden were still a long way off. All over the house, for weeks, Mother had been urging little flat wood boxes of earth to show signs of life. These boxes emerged every year, filled with earth

by Father, and until it was time to plant the sprouts out in the garden, they sat on benches and chairs, watched and watered by Mother. The window sills were too narrow to hold the boxes, and so finding a place to sit in the kitchen was often a challenge this time of year. When Mother first planted the seeds that would have arrived in the mail C.O.D., I was wild with excitement. I checked every day to see if anything had sprung up, but after days and days of constant vigilance, I lost interest, and instead concentrated on the seed catalogues, for which I had great plans. Using one of the rough-lined scribblers Mother had bought from Ritz’s Drug Store in Renfrew on the One-Cent-Sale, I re-created my very own seed catalogue. When I was finished, it didn’t at all look like the Steele-Briggs one that came in wintertime. The first thing I did was cut out all the pictures in the catalogue that were in colour. This job alone could wile away many hours at the kitchen table in the evening. Then I sorted the pictures in two piles, one for vegetables and one for flowers. When that job was finished, I next arranged the flowers into little piles, with my very favourites on top, and my least favourite ones on the bottom. I was especially fond of the pictures of the roses. The red ones. And there were pink and yellow ones too, but the bloodred ones, I thought were very special. Mother never ordered roses, which was a big disappointment to me, but she said the ground out at Northcote wasn’t good enough for rose bushes. My sister Audrey said it had more to do with the hard work involved in looking after rose bushes than it had to do with the soil. Even when I told Audrey I would be glad to look after them, she said we would never

catalogue. The roses went onto a page first. The red ones. Another page of drawings, and then the pink roses, and finally, the yellow ones. By the time I had MARY COOK worked through all the little piles of cutsee rose bushes on the farm at out flowers and pasted them into Northcote and to put the idea the scribbler, each separated by out of my mind! And so I had to a crayon-coloured drawing, the content myself with pictures cut scribbler was so fat, it was imout of the Steele-Briggs seed possible to keep it closed. But if nothing else, those scribblers catalogue. I was at the stage in my life were a bargain. There were still plenty of when I loved to draw. And so I drew little gardens on each page empty pages left for the pictures of the big scribbler with the of my favourite vegetables. I rough pages and the shiny black was never that fond of turnips cover. I coloured the pages with or cabbages, but blood-red tomy crayons, and I thought I had matoes and green cucumbers, done a good enough job to even yellow beans, and radishes all take the finished book to show had their own pages in my ‘seed Miss Crosby at the Northcote catalogue’. My brother Emerson, who School. Again, my sister Audrey ad- was a far better artist that I vised me to keep it at home, was, and never let me forget it, since it may cause bad Marguir- laughed at my attempt at drawite to go into a fit of jealousy, ing gardens in my scribbler. But Mother said my pictures and goodness knows what that reminded her of the big calendar could mean. There was no money for any- we got from Scott’s Hardware thing fancy like a little bottle of that year which was a country mucilage. Mother did something scene taken by a real camera. magically with boiled water and And that was good enough for flour, and we used that to stick me! When finally the little wood paper-to-paper and it worked perfectly well. And so I would boxes of earth scattered all over begin to create my very own the house started to sprout, and

finally grow a few inches, my interest was renewed. I again looked every day to see their growth, even though my sister Audrey reminded me “a watched pot never boils,” which I finally realized had nothing to do with a pot on the stove. I kept my hand-made seed catalogue under my bed for the weeks it took for the wood boxes to produce enough growth to move the plants to the garden and the flower beds. Every so often I would take it out, swelled as it was to three times its size, and leaf through it, anxious for the day I could take it out to the garden. Because when you could finally tell which plants would be carrots, and which would be cucumbers, and which flower bed would produce asters or cosmos, I would spend many a happy hour outside with my catalogue, matching my cut-out pictures to what was taking new life in the ground back in those Depression years when we were expected to amuse ourselves without benefit. It was a simple way of spending many happy hours free of costly toys. Like making rag dolls, whittling, carving slingshots, boiling weeds to make coloured water, and building sandcastles on the banks of the Bonnechere River, the price was just right.

Upcoming programs to promote self-esteem for girls Kayla, Don and Shay

Town of Arnprior youth staff

EMC lifestyle – Self-esteem is a word that is thrown out in media, in schools and with circles of friends all the time. But what is self esteem? Dictionary.com’s meaning is “a realistic respect for or favorable impression of oneself; self-respect.” Gaining good self-esteem is important in today’s society with so many misconstrued images, thoughts, and perceptions of how girls should act, look and what they should and shouldn’t like. Being unique is falling on the wayside because of the perception that girls should act a certain way, like cer-

tain things and behave ‘normally’. There are a lot of frightening statistics with girls relating to selfesteem. Dosomething.org has compiled a few: • “75 per cent of girls with low self-esteem reported engaging in negative activities like cutting, bullying, smoking, drinking, or disordered eating; • about 20 per cent of teens will experience depression before they reach adulthood; • the top wish among all teen girls is for their parents to communicate better with them; this includes frequent and more open conversations; • 7 in 10 girls believe that they are not good enough or don’t measure up in some way, including their looks, performance in school and relationships with friends and family members;

tered in Me Time will be registered as participants in the Sleepover For Self Esteem on June 7. That night is also open to all participants, even if not registered in the Me Time sessions. Every year we switch this night up, with a movie, snacks, media awareness activities, and just an all-round fun night for girls. It runs from 6-10 p.m. The cost for the Me Time program is $20 (includes sleepover) and for just the sleepover it is $10. We have limited space in both, so do not wait, This program is for girls only, in Grades 4-8. We will be hosting another session for girls in high school in the fall - as the ages are experiencing different issues and concerns at these times of their lives.

• A girl’s self-esteem is more strongly related to how she views her own body shape and body weight, than how much she actually weighs.” We want to address these issues at a young age - and they are truly issues for every child growing up. We have extended our Sleepover to Self Esteem into a four-week program. Thursdays starting May 16-30, we are hosting our Girlforce Me Time Program where we will have fun activities, games, and so much more to help girls realize their potential and gain self-confidence in their skills and abilities and, most importantly, to love who they are. The program runs from 6-8 p.m. at the Nick Smith Centre. In conjunction with this, after the three sessions, those who are regis-

DAD AND ME COOKING

Don’t forget to register for cooking. Our regular session is Thursday, May 2, and our Dad and Me session is Thursday, May 9 from 6-9 p.m. A great night out to make a delicious, well-rounded meal for the family, and more fun when with a male role model (uncle, friend, dad, guardian, grandparent, whoever). Twenty dollars for the class includes everything and registration is due by the Sunday before the date. Remember due to limited space, you may only register for one of the cooking classes per month. Registration must be done in person at the Nick Smith Centre. For more information, Facebook – ‘Nick Smith Centre’, emailkmenkhorst@ arnprior.ca, call 613-623-7301, or text Kayla’s cell 613-883-7301.

EMC lifestyle – The Arnprior-based 2360 Army Cadet Squadron held a tag day April 13. Nineteen Cadets took part along with and help from Chuck Warren, Squadron Commanding Officer Capt. Rob Dufour and Cadet committee chair Joanne Leduc. The army cadets thank the following stores who participated: Metro, Arnprior Mall entrances, No Frills, both Arnprior Tim Hortons, Wendys, TSC, Home Hardware, Canadian Tire, Shoppers Drugmart and Giant Tiger. The cadets also thank the Arnprior Legion Branch 174 president Harry Hereford for the use of the Branch, the squadron’s public relations officer Patrick Simmonds. “We give a big thank you to Metro for providing the pizzas,” he added. “We thank the parents for driving the Cadets to and from the stores.”

in its summer Ranger program EMC lifestyle – The provincial government is offering 1,974 summer jobs this year in natural resource management. The new day-based Stewardship Youth Ranger Program, one of several youth employment programs offered by the Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR), will provide 180 youth and 45 supervisory staff in more than 30 communities across Ontario with valuable job skills and the chance to

explore local career options. Local communities will also enjoy economic benefits from the Stewardship Youth Ranger Program, as the rangers are employed in the same areas in which they live. Last summer, the provincial government helped more than 100,000 students find jobs and access job services. Job search support is available year-round through Emplovment Ontario.

Free the Children group raising money for Haiti project

War of 1812 comes to St. Joseph’s 8EMC news - For the past two weeks, the Grade 7 students at St. Joseph’s have been studying the War of 1812 with the help of an educational kit from Canadian Geographic. This 8-by-11-metre floor

map has allowed the students to experience hands (or feet) on lessons pertaining to the war. The kit also provided group lesson plans that the students lead with the help of Arnprior District High School co-op

student Sydney Burns. These lessons included naval tactics, the geographic location for each battle, the geographic importance of the forts, how the First Nations tribes participated and on which side they

fought, and the importance of replenishing resources. The student leaders prepared and presented the lessons and created follow-up activities for fellow classmates and younger grades.

Flowers, and Doreen’s Goldbar. Gardiner says the goal is 10 bags full of pennies or enough to provide clean water to 10 people for life. He’s challenging the residents of Arnprior to see if the community can raise this much for clean water in Haiti. He issued a special thank you to Marlene McRoberts and her company Edward Jones for her gracious $100 donation to the clean water project. As always, people may make donations at the ADHS main school office and contributions over $10 will qualify for a tax receipt.

Grade 7 students at St. Joseph’s Catholic School with their floor map depicting the War of 1812.

EMC lifestyle - The We Create Change campaign led by a group of Arnprior District High School students is holding another penny drive. In its previous campaign in December and January, students raised $75 worth of pennies, enough to provide three people with a permanent source of water for life. Organizers have since then decided to hold a We Create Change campaign during May, reports Oliver Jacob Gardiner, the leader of the ADHS Free The Children Group. All proceeds of the May penny drive will go to the group’s clean water in Haiti project. So far about $500 has been raised for the project. From May 1 to May 31, the students will be collecting pennies at 17 local locations, including the Nick Smith Center, MacPherson’s Plumbing, the Arnprior Animal Hospital, Gillies Grove Animal Hospital, Mather Insurance and Realty, My Chocolate Factory, the Arnprior School of Dance, CIBC, RBC, Steve and Denni’s Restaurant, Antiques, Treasures and Treats, Hart, Intrendz, the Treasure Chest, Towey’s Bait and Tackle, Signature

EMC lifestyle - Many co-operative education students from Arnprior District High School are serving placements in Arnprior and area. The co-op students are at Arnprior Town Hall,

drug stores and even local public schools. This article in particular will recognize two of the co-op students at Walter Zadow Public School. Allison Mackenzie is a Grade 11 student from ADHS. She is hoping to pursue a career working with children, hopefully in early childhood education. 0425 R0012048297

May 2013 - Feature

She assists in teaching with Debbie Kargus’ Grade one and two split class, and Michal Cobsick’s Grade two class. Mackenzie helps students in those classes develop their reading and spelling skills, along with “echo reading.” Echo reading is where Mackenzie, for example, will say a word or sentence and the students she is working with will repeat what she has said as an exercise for reading out loud. “I love it here. The kids are so cute,” says Mackenzie. Mikki Jo Gardiner is a Grade 12 student also from ADHS. Last year had another co-op placement in Nicole White’s French classes at ADHS. This year, she has decided to try a dif-

ferent placement at Walter Zadow. Gardiner hopes to pursue a teaching career for young students, as she would like to teach French or music in the future. She assists with teaching in a Grade two and three split class, another Grade two class, and junior and senior kindergarten classes. Gardiner, similar to Mackenzie, assists with developing reading and spelling skills, along with echo reading. “I fit in here. It’s one of those things – it feels like I could do this for the rest of my life,” Gardiner says. More co-op students at ADHS will be recognized in the months to come.

Students seek votes in effort to earn spot in National Gallery Sydney Ross Co-op Student

EMC lifestyle - Three Arnprior District High School art students have been given an opportunity of a lifetime, a chance to have their work displayed in the National Art Gallery of Canada. Grade 11 students Tag Armitage-Smith, Alyssa Redner, and Kathrine Sergerie-Groulx have submitted their art pieces on www.soyouwanttobeanartist.ca. Artists across Canada had until April 1 to submit their art pieces online. The public is being asked to vote for their favorite art pieces. The top 12 most popular pieces will be displayed in the National Gallery in Ottawa. Armitage-Smith’s piece, titled ‘This House is Not a Home’ has 21 votes as of April 18. She used acrylic paint on a canvas, followed by washing her piece to add the effects of watercolor. The meaning behind her piece reflects those who live homes with divorced parents – as many of her close friends come from “broken homes.” Armitage-Smith’s piece stands as a statement that those Kathrine Sergerie-Groulx uses mixed media to make with divorced parents are not alone. Redner’s piece, titled an Elephant in the Room comment.

‘Masked’, has 141 votes as of April 18. She used pencil and pencil crayon to create her piece. Her work reflects people in society masking them from who they really are – young woman in particular. Redner was inspired a friend who works with young woman daily in social work. She sees first-hand people hiding themselves. Sergerie-Groulx’s piece, titled ‘White Elephant’ has 33 votes as of April 18. She incorporated mixed media, using pieces of newspaper on canvas to create an abstract elephant. She created the piece to reflect the meaning of ‘Elephant in the Room’, meaning that there are social issues in the world and problems that are not being solved. The use of newspaper to create the elephant is done for irony purposes. Mediums such as newspapers report social issues, but many of them never seem to get solved, she noted. The three students are asking for the public’s help in the hopes having their art work displayed at the National Gallery of Canada. To vote, go to www.soyouwanttobeanartist.ca.

Cathy Trebinskie is one of the many Ellis wishes to thank. “She is with PartyLite Candles and she donated prizes for the welcome package and helped out on the day,” said Ellis. “The community centre has been a big supporter,” said Ellis. Nu-Tech Precision Metals, Arnprior No Frills and Metro and Renfrew Wal Mart all donated to the event.

“A lot of people gave gifts and donated prizes,” she said. CHEO was also a huge supporter, including listing the event on its website, which drew more participants. Scrapbooking is something Ellis has been doing for years and among her favourite topics are family events. “It’s just a fun way to look at pictures,” said Ellis.

The moment that you died, Our hearts split in two, The one side filled with memories, The other died with you. We often lay awake at night, When the world is fast asleep, And take a walk down memory lane, With tears upon our cheeks. Remembering you is easy, We do it everyday, But missing you is a heartache, That never goes away. We hold you tightly within our hearts, and there you will remain, Life has gone on without you, But it never will be the same.

A wonderful mother, woman, and aide, One who was better God never made; A wonderful worker, so loyal and true, One in a million, that mother was you. Just in your judgment, always right; Honest and liberal, ever upright; Loved by your friends and all whom you knew Our wonderful mother, that mother was you.

Loved and always remembered, Randy, Daphne, Brodie and Nicole

Ten years have passed… our grief remains… You can shed tears that she is gone or you can smile because she has lived. You can close your eyes and pray that she’ll come back, or you can open your eyes and see all she’s left. Your heart can be empty because you cannot see her, or you can be full of the love you shared. You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday, or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday. You can remember her and only that she’s gone, or you can cherish her memory and let it live on. You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back, or you can do what she’d want; Smile, open your eyes, love and go on. Forever in our hearts… Deb, Doug and Erin

The Voice of the Wind When the warm breeze of April caresses you Part of it will be me. When you look into the eyes of my children part Of them will be me. When a snowflake of winter plans a kiss on Your cheek that kiss might well have been me. And the dust which appears out of nowhere may that be a part of the dust that was me. Through the promise of morning and the voice of the wind I will always have something to say. To reflect on those wonderful moments and Warm you as you make you way. All things that we both were a part of will Continue to brighten each day. Making room for the sounds of your laughter by Remembering I’m not far away. By David Garred Forever in our Hearts

Feb. 27, 1964 – Apr. 29, 2010 Life is but a stopping place, A pause in what’s to be, A resting place along the road, To sweet eternity. We all have different journeys, Different paths along the way, We are all meant to learn some things, But never meant to stay. Our destination is a place, Far greater than we know, For some the journey’s quicker, For some the journey’s slow. But when the journey finally ends, We’ll claim a great reward, And find an everlasting peace, Together with the Lord. Missing you…Love Always, Jennifer, Steven, Alex, Abby, Danielle, Bradley and Payton xoxox

His garden must be beautiful, he always takes the best. It broke our hearts to lose you but you did not go alone, For part of us went with you on the day God took you home. Always remembered with love, Barb & Arnold & Family

ENTERTAINMENT

Connected to your community

Play dates change EMC entertainment – As Prior Players prepare for their spring production, theatre enthusiasts may have noticed ads or posters that indicate a matinee will be performed on Sunday, May 5. However, Prior Players has announced that due to a conflict in booking dates at the Christian Education Centre the matinee will be cancelled. Theatre enthusiasts are welcome to attend one of the other performances on May 3, 4, 10 or 11 at 7:30 p.m. All performances are at the CEC at 257 John St. Tickets are available at the door or may be purchased in advance at Arnprior Bulk Foods on John Street. This spring’s performance is a comedy farce that will have audiences rolling with laughter. Don’t Dress for Dinner by Marc Camoletti (adapted by Robin Hawdon) is set in the countryside of France. A weekend of mischief takes many twists and turns as a couple entertain guests who “aren’t always who they seem.”

MonkeyJunk played to a sold-out audience at the John Street Pub in Arnprior April 12. The Juno award-winning Ottawa-based blues trio, which has won 15 Maple Blues awards, gave a pumped-up performance for the local crowd. The group features Matt Sobb on drums), Tony D (hat) on lead guitar, and Steve Marriner on vocals, harmonica, keyboards and guitar. Left, MonkeyJunk’s Steve Marriner wails away on the harmonica. Right, Tony D plays lead guitar during MonkeyJunk’s Arnprior appearance. Last weekend the John St. Pub featured another Ottawa band Roadhouse Friday and Arnprior’s Disturbing The Peace Saturday.

PARTNERING WITH EAST SIDE MARIOS

Another change for Prior Players is a new ‘twist’ on dinner theatre. East Side Marios have offered a coupon with each theatre ticket purchased. Theatre-goers can have dinner before the show, or enjoy the show on one evening and dinner on another. Prior Players thank Mitch Van Wyk and the staff of East Side Marios for partnering with them and enhancing the enjoyment of a ‘theatre night out’.

Comic, hypnotist to play Arnprior

EMC entertainment – A comedy hypnosis show is coming to Arnprior in May. Fraser Frase will play at the John St. Pub Thursday, May 9 at 8 p.m. Fraser is an off-the-wall funny guy who has been performing for more than 15 years from coast to coast in Canada. He has even performed at resorts in Aruba. He credits the too many trips he made to the principal’s office as a kid as why his act is what it is today. Multi-award winning master hypnotist Tony Lee has given two thumbs up to Frase’s show. Lee has been booking him for some years now and they often perform together. Frase has headlined colleges, comedy clubs including Yuk Yuks, Time to Laugh, Big League Comedy and more. He was voted best frosh week show for three years running at University of Windsor. His 90-plus minute show in Arnprior will be a general admission event. Seating and standing will be firstcome, first-served, with patrons advised to arrive between 6 and 7 p.m. Tickets are on sale for $20 advanced until May 8 or $25 at the door. Tickets are non-refundable unless the show is cancelled.

Legion crushes Knights in euchre EMC lifestyle - Another Knights-Legion euchre challenge is over with the Legion crushing the Knights by 94 games. The real winner, from the money raised, was the Arnprior and District Food Bank, which received a $500 donation and the Town Square Project with a donation of $150. Unfortunately no Knights were available for the Trophy presentation. Apparently they are ‘dug in’ somewhere in the Parish Hall basement planning their strategy for next year’s competition. Euchre players are reminded that it won’t be that long before the next competition rolls around (January 2014).
