Inside Quarry NEWS worries

True Grit: Trudeau visits ADHS

Liberal leader urges students to be involved

Sherry Haaima Sherry.haaima@metroland.com

EMC news - The people have spoken. They were teachers, dentists, firefighters, blue collar workers, retirees. They were parents, grandparents, daughters and sons. What they all had in common was opposition to the Miller Group’s proposal to expand extraction at the Braeside Quarry and add a permanent asphalt plant. “We are not a receptor, we’re human beings,” said Trevor Turner, who lives adjacent to the Miller property with his wife and two small children.

PATRICIA LEBOEUF/METROLAND

EMC news -The students of Arnprior District High School were given a sneak peak into Canadian politics Monday after a visit from new federal Liberal leader Justin Trudeau. Students gathered for a relatively informal conversation in the school’s auditorium with Trudeau who was elected Liberal leader in a landslide April 14. “This is part of what I’ve been doing pretty much for the past four-five years that I’ve been a politician,” said Trudeau. “Spend as much time as I can getting out and chatting with young people, talking about the kind of world we need to build, talking about the kind of issues that we are facing, but mostly making sure that it is not just a speech out towards you guys but a conversation back and forth.” This back and forth is not typical of politicians, but should be as it is an opportunity for young people to challenge and probe a political leader, he added. The first student’s question directly addressed the politician’s famous pedigree. As the son of former Prime Minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau, he has been accused of having an unfair advantage over other statesmen. Trudeau did admit that his name does impact people, but that he would have never gone as far in his career without the proper skills. “I’m only in my early 40s, and I have an awful lot of learning to do, but I come to this position with the tremendous amount of on-the-ground political experience that I put forward during this campaign,” said Trudeau.

Liberal Party of Canada leader Justin Trudeau listens to a question from an Arnprior District High School student during a visit to the school Monday.

Liberal leader ‘engages’ citizens in visit to Valley Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

EMC news - With the next federal election more than two years away, Justin Trudeau’s move to engage the public across Canada has begun. Less than a month after his sweeping victory in the federal Liberal Party leadership convention, the 41-year-old politician spent Monday in Kanata, Arnprior and Renfrew, speaking with high school students and holding a meet-and-greet. The previous week, he was in Winnipeg and Edmonton meeting with Canadians. Politics is about engagement, and that’s what Trudeau says he plans to do. “There’s no glamour and glory in it. It’s just rolling up my sleeves and getting to meet as many people as possible in as many parts of the country as I can,” said Trudeau, wearing jeans and an open-collared white shirt for a Monday-afternoon interview with The Chronicle-Guide. Meanwhile, the Conservatives have been quick to respond with attack ads targetting the former whitewater instructor. Which doesn’t surprise Trudeau in the least. “The only thought I have about them is it’s not particularly surpris-

The Conservatives went negative as quickly and forcefully as they could,” said the MP for the Quebec riding of Papineau. “On the one hand, it does show that they do see me as somewhat of a threat,” he said. “But what’s more interesting is not what I feel about them, but what Canadians tend to think about them. Everywhere I’ve gone, even strong Conservatives have said, I’m not going to vote for you, Justin, but I’m not particularly proud about the ap-

proach my party took on this. “Others say I might vote for you if you remain positive, and you give me a reason to vote for you, and not just reasons not to vote for someone else … We’ve seen that a little bit with the Conservatives in caucus who won’t be participating in the mail-out attack ads.” Trudeau said he’s living by the advice provided by his father, former prime minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau in 2000. Don’t make politics about personal negativity, his dad told him. He also told the oldest of his three sons to remain true to his values and principles. Trust Canadians, to be more, to be better, to do the right thing, the elder Trudeau advised. “Ultimately, that’s what I’m hinging an awful lot of my political approach on, that I will continue to be thoughtful and hopeful and principled, and base things around hope and hard work and trust that Canadians will respond to (that),” said the Liberal leader. Trudeau readily acknowledges the Liberals have made huge mistakes since becoming the majority government in 2000. They now have third-party status in the House of Commons. “For me, that has entirely to do with Liberals taking people for

granted, taking supporters for granted, taking regions for granted, and being much more turned in on ourselves rather than open to engaging with and listening to Canadians,” said Trudeau. “We were busy arguing about who got to drive the big red bus or sit in the front seat, rather than worrying that the big red bus was careening over the edge of a cliff … We showed a house divided, and Canadians will not choose a house divided to be a government.” Trudeau, in a 15-minute interview with The Chronicle-Guide, also talked about his background in the context of the Conservatives’ criticism of him. “I know people in the Valley, and whether it was the years I was a whitewater instructor or my work with kids in various tourism industries as a counsellor, or as a teacher, I’m proud of those parts of my upbringing,” insisted Trudeau. “And I’m proud of my connection to the land, and my respect for it.” When asked about the Conservatives’ hesitation to grant national heritage status to the Ottawa River, Trudeau admitted he didn’t know much about the issue. However, he did have an opinion on another aspect of waterways protection.

Trudeau said the Conservatives are “almost reversing the onus in terms of protecting rivers. Instead, they’ve created a list that says these are the rivers we will protect. Canada is a country of lakes and rivers, and the reform to the Navigable Waters Protection Act really worries me.” The 150-year-old piece of legislation needed reform, but not in the disrespectful manner assumed by the Conservatives, said Trudeau. When national heritage status was described to him, he said the Conservatives’ approach sounds somewhat offside with how most area residents feel about the Ottawa River. “It’s an extraordinary asset, in terms of tourism but also as an economic driver … I could probably list 50 rivers that should have national heritage status, but the Ottawa would certainly be in the top five or 10.” Meanwhile, Trudeau says he plans to see a lot of Canada before the next federal election in October 2015. “We don’t have to look too deeply to see if it’s a targeted riding,” he said. “We have 35 seats, and there will be over 300 that are open to the Liberal Party to win in the next election. We have a huge hill to climb, and it’s just a question of getting out everywhere as much as we possibly can.”

Youth to lead way in society embracing change: Trudeau Continued from front

Traditional youth questions like postsecondary tuition were overshadowed by Manuela Mueller-Code DMH, DynBC, DHHP students’ probing and insightful questions on capital punishment, prison reform, First Doctor of Medical Heilkunst & Dyn Blood Analysis Nation issues, sustainable food systems and Nature’s Truth the Israel-Palestine conflict. formerly Hahnemann Centre For Heilkunst “That’s something for me that I am very 946 Mill Ridge Road, Arnprior, ON K7S 3G8 Register at 613-623-8804 excited about being involved in with the by appointment only R0012087057 coming years,” said Trudeau. “I always know there are solutions to be had as long as we start bringing people to the table and NEW & USED HOME FURNISHINGS being strong and forceful with what we acTURN YOUR UNWANTED FURNITURE cept and don’t accept in terms and value and action.” Getting future votes may have been a benefit of visiting the teenagers, but

INTO CASH!

wasn’t the goal, affirmed Trudeau. Rather he wanted to convince them that politics are a valid way of inducing change and young people should be at the heart of it. “The one thing I can guarantee you that the kinds of mindsets that saw us through a generation ago, a century ago or even just a decade ago, no longer hold,” he said. “We need to look forward and embrace change in a way that is not easy for a stable society and that’s why I spent so much time trying to get young people interested in politics. You are the one segment of the population that is used to change, that is not set in your ways,” he added. Any political conversation that doesn’t

draw in youth creativity, dynamism and their capacity of challenging the status-quo is not complete, said the politician. When asked what the most important change Canadians must undertake, he replied that it was a balance. The economy cannot thrive if the environment is destroyed, or vice versa. As a former teacher, Trudeau admitted his delighted surprise at finding the ADHS crowd so well behaved and knowledgeable during the conversation. He continued his May 6 Valley circuit with an interview on Valley Heritage Radio and a meet-and-greet at the Renfrew Legion in the evening.

Recommendations implemented: Miller’s “We are a small community. Braeside is a fantastic place to be, provided Miller’s is not able to do what they’re trying to do.” Years of preparation, studies and debates came together when the township of McNabBraeside hosted a public meeting to hear comments and concerns about the expansion. It was standing room only with an estimated 200 people in attendance at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church in Braeside Monday (May 6) when experts and citizens gathered to have their say on the issue. Two other evenings had been set aside in case everyone did not get a chance to speak, but the meeting wrapped up around a half hour before the allotted closing time of 10 p.m. Experts retained by the residents’ group FACT-MB to review the studies relating to the proposal addressed the crowd to explain their concerns relating to water contamination and loss and air pollution (see Page 6). Dust, odour, noise and traffic have already been an issue for nearby residents, who fear the expansion and addition of an asphalt plant will only make things worse. “We require your due diligence to protect our health and well-being,” said resident Norma Moore. Dr. Randy White agreed and said despite the residents’ many concerns there were no studies on the proposal that reflected badly on the company. “Those studies are not complete,” he said, charging that total economic impact and public health hazards were not addressed. “What we have is an uncontrolled medical experiment on people living the area, without their consent,” he said. Critics of the proposal pointed to a 2011 case in which Miller Paving was convicted of nuisance, trespass and negligence after Braeside residents had filed a suit for adverse effects from a temporary asphalt plant the location. Shannon Cassidy-Rouleau implored council to vote against the proposal. “We are not an industrial corridor, we are a residential community of neighbours and Miller’s has not been a good neighbour,” she said. She quoted Ralph Waldo Emerson: “What you do speaks so loudly that I cannot hear what you say.” When Mary-Beth Pidgeon moved here from Toronto in 1995 with her family the quarry was still owned by Smith Construction and there

were no real problems, she said. But things have changed. “Noise, dust, the smell is terrible,” said Pidgeon. Some days she cannot hang out her laundry and there are fewer days during which the family can enjoy the deck. “We left Toronto to get away from industrialization,” she said. “I really don’t want us to be seen as another industrial wasteland.” Residents and experts also expressed concerns in case of disaster or fire, indicating no solid contingency plans appeared to be in place.

representing more than 250 sand, gravel, and crushed stone producers and suppliers of valuable industry products and services. Those opposed say the small levies the township will receive will in no way approach the total from a lost tax base reduced by decreased property values and a lack of new homes being built in the area. Bell and Miller were the sole speakers in support of the proposal. Written submissions can still be submitted at the township office or to township CAO Noreen Mellema at nmellema@mcnabbraeside.com . Renfrew County planner Bruce Howarth indicated he will likely provide his review and recommendations to council’s planning advisory committee at its May 21 meeting.

EMC news – In a session Monday morning, the residents’ group opposing plans for a permanent asphalt plant at the Braeside Quarry introduced the two experts they have flown in for this week’s hearings. Members of FACT-MB (Friends Addressing Concerns Together in McNab-Braeside) have retained hydrogeologist Wilf Ruland and air pollution specialist Dr. Henry S. Cole to express their concerns at Monday’s hearing. FACT maintains the two who were hired to evaluate the expansion studies are “eminent, highly qualified independent experts.” FACT-MB has stressed it wants Miller Paving to ensure the Braeside Quarry is expanded safely and be monitored carefully for blasting damage to residents or negative impacts on the groundwater or the alvar. However, FACT has concluded that “industrialization” of the quarry with permanent asphalt and concrete plants, is “just too dangerous to the air and the water in a rural residential area.” “The proposed Miller Braeside Quarry expansion would be problematic even in the best of circumstances, given the more than 100 homes located within one kilometre of the proposed quarry,” said Ruland. “But the proposed quarry expansion’s setting on a bedrock ridge, means that the expansion proposal would be competing with residents’ wells for the limited groundwater resources available on the ridge,” he added. “There is a real risk of wells losing water.” Ruland, who has 25 years experience and has worked on peer reviews of many quarry applications around the province, said what is unique in this case is the sheer number of people affected. Ruland had called on the company to prepare a water balance for the Braeside Ridge when he first looked at the proposal four years ago, and is concerned that this necessary work has not been done. “The threats to residents’ wells and the natural environment are exacerbated by the proposal to put an asphalt plant in the quarry,” he said. “There have been no studies done on the potential water quality impacts of the asphalt plant, and no monitoring is proposed. Moreover, the company’s track record with portable asphalt plants at this location is poor.” He pointed out that asphalt plants are known sources of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), which are potentially toxic organic chemicals. “This is not the place I would be putting an

asphalt plant,” said Ruland, who recommended to his clients that they oppose the quarry application for this reason in particular. “I recommend that the township either refuse the applications for asphalt plant or table the applications until such time as groundwater and surface water quality impact assessments have been properly completed and circulated for peer review,” said Ruland. TOXIC AIR

Cole warned that placing a hot mix asphalt and concrete plant so close to homes is likely to expose families to a variety of toxic emissions including pollutants that have been linked to cancer. Cole, a former U.S. Environmental Protection Association atmospheric scientist, charged that “the air modeling assessment conducted by Miller’s consultants contains serious problems – errors that are likely to cause significant under-prediction of the actual pollution to which residents are exposed.” Things just don’t add up, said Cole. “As scientists, we want to see good science.” He noted that young children, the elderly and chronically ill are especially vulnerable to fine particulates and other emissions associated with asphalt plants. “Someone trying to play, picnic or garden in their backyards so close to the asphalt plant will be subjected to those toxic emissions,” he said. “From an air pollution standpoint, a lot of very toxic substances are emitted into the air.” FACT pointed out that the company has already been convicted of nuisance, trespass and negligence in a court decision in November 2011. Braeside residents had filed a suit for adverse effects from a temporary asphalt plant at this location. As well, the financial downside to the township is considerable, from loss of tax revenues from diminished property values, to deterioration of infrastructure from heavy truck traffic, to having to provide a source of safe drinking water to the residents of the whole Braeside Ridge, if pollution should occur, FACT maintains. “The risks are too great.” FACT said McNab-Braeside council has a “monumental task” ahead of it to digest all the comments they receive from the township residents regarding the quarry expansion application. But it has the responsibility for the health and welfare of all constituents now and for decades to come, it concludes.

The Miller Group hosted an open house Monday in Braeside to speak to residents about the proposal. At right, Tom Jones, left, of Miller Group and consultant Gary Bell stand with a diagram outlining the company’s plans.

Arnprior residents ‘pitch in’ to give the town a spring cleaning cil. During Pitch-In Day, participants collected one tri-axle dump truck load, which included household waste, a couch, wood waste and recyclables, “thereby promoting environmental sustainability while enhancing the Town of Arnprior,” Barclay said. “The objectives to clean-up, restore, and beautify the environment by cleaning up litter and other waste from within the Town and encour-

EDITORIAL

Attack ads on Trudeau hypocritical Bullies don’t have a sense of humour. They’re far too insecure for that. We’re not saying that all Conservatives are bullies or bereft of a sense of the ridiculous – just whoever was behind the attack ads launched at newly-installed federal Liberal leader Justin Trudeau. So Justin grew a moustache for Movember to raise cancer awareness. And he did a strip tease at a Canadian Liver Foundation fundraiser. To which we say – so what? Did he hurt someone? No. Did he help someone? Yes. Is it something he might regret now? Yes. But did he do it for the right reasons? Yes. He was, literally, giving the foundation the shirt off his back, and it raised $1,900. And the foundation is standing by him. Remember that other MPs have also similarly disrobed. We all remember that famous photograph of former Prime Minister Kim Campbell, appearing to be naked behind a judicial robe. (She was actually wearing a strapless gown.) On both the left and the right, we’ve seen politicians do things that they regret. Remember Stockwell Day’s infamous wetsuit press conference on a British Columbia lake in 2000? Also, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Remember Pierre Trudeau’s pirouette behind Queen Elizabeth II? Or when he appeared at a Canadian Football League game in a cape? Canadians will decide for themselves, likely

by 2015, if Justin has what it takes to become prime minister. They will make their decision based on the policies he puts forward, what he says, and what he does. The Conservatives berate Trudeau for his lack of experience – even though he has about as much experience on Parliament Hill as an MP as Stephen Harper did when he became leader of the old Canadian Alliance in 2002. (Harper, 1993 to 1997, Trudeau, 2008 to 2013 by the time he became Liberal leader). And think back to how many of you got one of your first summer jobs as a camp counselor, or found your voice through drama? And the ads certainly kiss off the white water rafting vote. Only his House of Commons attendance record seems to be even remotely fair game. These ads make the Conservatives seem like grumpy old men, devoid of a sense of humour, ready to tell that Trudeau kid to get off their lawn. And it is sad that we now live in an age where we knew that, as night begets day, so too would Monday bring us a new slew of negative ads. Enough with these bullying character assassinations – focus instead on the silly things Trudeau has said. Sadly, there are ample sound clips to choose from. Are there not more important things, like the hollowing out of middle class jobs being shipped to India, that deserve our attention? As Trudeau noted: “Canadians want to be led, not ruled,.� To which we can add that Canadians want to be persuaded, not bullied.

LAST WEEK’S QUESTION LETTER

Check ingredients of potting soil To the Editor: I grin when I see stacks and rows of potting soil bags at grocery stores, hardware stores and at greenhouses. The so-called ‘potting soil’ or ‘black earth’ has become an industry built on misconceptions. The bagged material does not contain soil. Sure it looks black and earthy and the real thing for your plants, but it delivers almost no nutrients. I call it a ‘lifeless substance’. No wonder the bags are heavy for their size; they are 70 per cent moisture. Some folks mix it in with existing garden soil to loosen the soil up a bit. It’s a waste of money, It’s so soft it disappears

from excessive rainfall and also from too much hot sun. Because there are no regulations to govern potting soil, the formula varies by the manufacturers. The different brands I checked had roughly the same kind of ingredients, except the Organic Choice. It was the only one that has ‘pasteurized poultry litter’, which brought a chuckle. Did the hens eat organic grains? The other ingredients are: 50 per cent composted bark, sphagnum peat moss and organic wetting agent. See what I said about it not being a soil. I checked the labels on potting soil bags at local

outlets and in the U.S. to see about nutrients. Most have 30 per cent organic matter, maximum moisture of 70 per cent, and, get this, 0.14 per cent nitrogen. One brand of Premium Potting Mix has 15 per cent organic matter, moisture of 70 per cent and nitrogen is only 0.07 per cent. That’s almost nil for nitrogen. Look at the moisture content. It’s no better when it comes to phosphorous and potash – 0.01 per cent phosphorous and 0.03 for potash. There are major differences be-

tween potting soil and your typical garden soil found outdoors. Garden soils are usually loamy, heavy, rich soils. Good garden soil is full of organic matter. The natural cycle of decay and growth keeps soils richer, and the interaction of many plants, insects and especially worms balances the soil. That hasn’t happened to the stuff in the plastic bags with bits of sticks in it.

B) No. The government is still spending way beyond its, and taxpayersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, means.

To the Editor: The Prior Chest Nuts Dragonboat Team would like to thank you and the citizens of Arnprior and area who came out and supported us at our very successful Spring Tea and Fashion Show held April 13. We had an afternoon filled with wonderful entertainment provided by Debbie Reid and Friends, delicious desserts provided by the team and many volunteers, and a fashion show by Audreyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s In Town showcasing the beautiful fashions that Audrey has at her store on John Street.We are always so humbled by the support that we receive from family, friends and our community and this was another such occasion. We had a sold-out audience and the money that we raised will go towards upkeep of our dragonboat, insurance, and, most importantly, our trip to Sarasota, Florida in October 2014. Yes, we have registered for this International Breast Cancer Dragonboat Competition and are so excited to have this as a goal for the team.We will be very proud to represent Arnprior and area at this competition, and thank you for your ongoing support.

know the reasons of each councillor for his/ her choice. Nearly six years ago at a public meeting in McNab-Braeside school auditorium, the council of the day stood on that stage and stated clearly that there would never be a permanent asphalt plant in Braeside. Many people believed that councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s word and heaved a collective sigh of relief, not understanding that the process would still continue. Since then we have realized that the council could not make such a decision until all the facts were in. It was only fair to give the Miller Group time to make their â&#x20AC;&#x153;pitchâ&#x20AC;? as to why this industrialization should occur. The people of this Township have elected two new councils since then; people who were chosen to do a difficult job to the best of their ability. And I think they all try hard to do their best. But it still comes down to the fact that we elected them; they are accountable to us. The Township lawyer has made it very clear to this council that they are obligated to listen to our concerns, to read our comments, our questions, and our objections. And we will ask them - have they done that? Have they obtained answers to the questions we asked of the people we asked? So here we are, over seven years after Miller told council of their intention to expand, waiting for that decision to be made, the best decision for all the people of the Township - a decision that will affect people near and far.

To the Editor: This is another letter about the Miller Braeside Quarry expansion process. A decision must be made soon about this. And the present McNab-Braeside Council has put in one heck of an effort trying to read and understand many technical reports and sifting the wheat from the chaff. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had to put in a lot of extra hours to do the job right, to try to make a decision that will be fair to all the taxpayers of McNabBraeside, whether it be the Miller Company or all the residents. It has been a real burden on Township staff as well. And a decision will have to be made, to allow a rural residential community to be turned into a centre for heavy industry or not. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big responsibility resting on the shoulders of five people. I mentioned the importance of fairness in their decision, but what we also have to think about is accountability. Because of all the risk factors â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the possible depletion and pollution of the aquifers of the Braeside Ridge, the inevitable pollution of the air the neighbours breathe, the damage to the roads from heavy truck traffic, the destruction of the globally rare alvar, the risk of asphalt plant fire, the real loss of property value of residents with a corresponding loss in revenues to the whole township, this is not an average rezoning that council has to consider. So these five people will have to be accountable for their decision. We will want to know their reasons for voting the way they do, making that decision. We will want to

Questions for MP on China investment treaty To the editor: On Monday, April 22, our Member of Parliament Cheryl Gallant helped defeat the NDP motion to terminate the Canada-China Foreign Investment Protection Agreement – but the government has yet to actually ratify it into law. This paradox revives several questions. Why does the treaty include a double-staged total exit notice of 31 years, while NAFTA has such a notice of only six months? Why did the Tories repeatedly vote against allowing more than one hour of review at parliamentary committee ever since the Prime Minister co-signed it with China on Sept. 9, 2012? What makes Ms. Gallant certain that the three-person tribunals en-

forcing the treaty will actually sentence China with more monetary orders than Canada itself, given over $400 million in successful NAFTA claims against Canadian taxpayers, yet none against the United States? How does the combination of the treaty and Chinese investments in the bitumen industry play into the regime’s China First Energy Strategy? What new rights are Chinese statecompanies expecting to gain that are worth any treaty costs? Why is the treaty still awaiting ratification if it is supposed to benefit our economy? For seven months, answers have been not been forthcoming from Ms. Gallant. Stefan Klietsch Renfrew

Vote online to back MP’s gun registry privatization To the editor: As you may know by now, Renfrew County MP Cheryl Gallant recently introduced a motion in Parliament (Bill 439) calling for the closure of all Provincial Firearms Offices, who it seems have been making up rules as they see fit, instead of enforcing the firearm regulations strictly in accordance with federal statutes. The result has been ongoing harassment for lawful firearm owners, especially since the former Liberal governments arbitrarily imposed ‘Gun Bill’ was officially amended by the Conservative party on April 5, 2012 - thus ending a draconian gun registry Cheryl Gallant fought

Knowing this, every sportsman and hunter, shooter, collector and concerned citizen should vote in favor of Cheryl Gallant’s motion, thereby helping her end the unjust treatment of responsible people. You can cast your vote online at Mrs. Gallants website Cheryl@responsiblefirearmsreform.ca - it only takes a few moments to do, and remember this, Cheryl Gallant fought tooth-and-nail to successfully end the federal long gun registry, and she will fight tooth-and-nail to successfully end the Provincial Firearms Office agenda as well.

for over a decade to have abolished. Mrs. Gallant’s motion further calls for all Provincial Firearms Agencies to be privatized and made serviceoriented, instead of agenda-oriented, because Provincial Firearms Officers are routinely “interpreting” the federal firearm laws, instead of enforcing the federal firearm laws as they are supposed to. Privatizing these provincial agencies will ensure that the federal firearm regulations are uniformly enforced nationwide, provide substantial cost savings, end the petty harassment of law abiding gunowners, and provide the public accountability so woefully absent at this time.

Flood warning issued for Ottawa River area

LENORE WHELAN/SUBMITTED

EMC news – The Ministry of Natural Resources has issued a flood warning for the Ottawa River, but lifted one from the Madawaska River. The flood warning was put in effect late last week for the Ottawa River from Des Joachim Dam to Chats Lake in Arnprior. Reservoirs on the upper Ottawa River are full or filling, requiring the release of flows down the main channel of the river. Warm weather is continuing to influence the rapid melting of the remaining snow pack on the upper Ottawa River watershed. Flows in the Ottawa River will continue to increase as upper reservoirs fill and water is released. Some localized flooding may occur in areas along a large section of the Ottawa River in the flood warning area. Levels are expected to remain high all week, says the MNR. Meanwhile, the flood warning has been removed from the upper Madawaska River. Inflows from spring melt have reduced significantly, meaning flows in the Madawaska River are being reduced. The public is reminded streams and rivers are very dangerous at this time of year. MNR advises all residents to keep their children, pets and themselves away from lakeshores and riverbanks.

This photo shows how high the Madawaska River rose at Hydro Island just below the weir.

River came up quickly this year along the Madawaska River To the Editor: I’m walking the Gillies trail, observing the fast flowing Madawaska River as it gushes over the weir. The Hydro Island at times will look like a sailing boat, now looks like it is sinking as the river has swallowed up it rock base. On the east side of the weir, a log has lodged itself within the rocks at the bottom and as the river’s white rapid waters are

torrenting over that log, it looks like a missile that has fired its engines. The old boat launch and dock in front of the sewage plant, normally dry, is knee deep if walking to the end of the dock, as the strong current not two feet further rushes the Madawaska towards the Ottawa On April 21, I was able to walk on dry pathway from start

of the Gillies trail following the Madawaska all the way to the point to where the two rivers meet. By Monday, April 22, pathways were submerged by the river, including the little entrance shacks at the marina access to the roadway, which is limited due to the flooding. Lenore Whelan Arnprior

Drought, climate change affect Renfrew County’s trees EMC news – Renfrew County woodlot owners have a better idea of how climate change and last year’s drought is affecting their trees and how they can prepare for what’s to come. The annual general meeting of the Renfrew chapter of the Ontario Woodlot Association featured two speakers who shed light on the long-term implications of both climate change and the drought. The event at the Eganville Community Arena April 20 was entitled ‘Your trees, the drought of 2012 and the outlook of the future’. Steve D’Eon was charged with the task of informing woodlot owners just how last year’s drought is impacting their trees. D’Eon, a knowledge exchange specialist with the Canadian Wood Fibre Centre and the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources in Pembroke, is also a program forester for the forest stewardship committee of Renfrew County. The drought of 2012 is classified a single year drought, he explained, and to fully gauge the impact from a tree perspective you need to look at the periodicity of the drought. A summer drought is more devastating than a fall one. “May to August is when trees really need the moisture in the soil,” said D’Eon. In Renfrew County, little to no rain and increased forest fire numbers were the reality in 2012. Pembroke MNR fire departments recorded 46 fires compared to the one counted in 2011. The weather turned hot early in 2012 and the rain just didn’t come It’s important for a tree that in spring the soil gets completely full of moisture.

“In a normal year that’s occurring between April and May,” said D’Eon. “In 2012 that period was about a month early. It started out wet but dried out quickly and the trees were looking for moisture in the soil that was not there.” When trees are candling they need moisture and in 2012 trees candled up and didn’t grow, said D’Eon. Areas more heavily impacted included recently harvested area, newly planted trees and in areas where overtapping may have occurred. Another thing that must be considered is that effects are cumulative on trees. Periods before 2012 must be taken into account and the stress of last year’s drought will continue on past 2012, he said. Effects include trees outright dying, dying from the outside in, root dieback, reduced height growth and structural or mechanical defects that make trees more vulnerable. Early leaf fall was another effect. He issued a reminder to those in attendance. “Resource is the site, the trees are the crop,” he said. Stress on trees already affected by the drought will be increased if they are not already healthy. “Off-site species, extreme soils, sandy-gravelly soil, poorly managed stands,” can all be factors in trees that continue to do poorly. What should landowners know? “The best advice is keep your forests healthy and properly managed,” said D’Eon. “Don’t get over excited and run out and clear cut the whole thing. Don’t jump to conclusions, monitor what you’ve got.” Have a close look at your trees. “Expect to see things start flushing soon and if they’re flushing, they got some life in them, they’re not

Guest speakers at the Ontario Woodlot Association Renfrew chapter’s annual general meeting picked up a bottle of Renfrew County maple syrup as a parting gift. Gary Nielsen, climate change project co-ordinator for the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources, left, joins Steve D’Eon, knowledge exchange specialist with the Canadian Wood Fibre Centre and Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources in Pembroke, and program forester for the forest stewardship committee of Renfrew County. flushing they’re dead.” If in doubt, he said, take a bud from the side, not the top, of a tree. Snap it off and examine the core. Brown cores mean the tree is most likely dead. “Green means that bud will flush and give you a new green shoot,” said D’Eon. Another thing to keep in mind, he said, is to seek qualified advice for what you don’t know. Take a long-term perspective, he urged. There’s some question as to what can be done with dead or dying material. “Should you let it be or go out and cut it down?” he asked. One factor that might be considered is its value. “Is it marketable? Would you get some money for it or would you have to pay someone to take it down?” he said. Also important is to not add more stress. Cattle on woodlot is not a good idea, he said. Don’t compact soil, remove organic matter, or allow wind to come through, all which would add more stress to the trees. Speaker Gary Nielsen, climate change project co-ordinator for the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources, started out by canvassing the crowd for anyone who denies climate change exists. No hands went up to that question, but a handful of audience members raised hands when asked if they were confused about the issue. It can be a difficult issue to understand. “There’s a lot of misinformation out there and it’s bloody hard just to figure out what’s real and what’s not real,” said Nielsen. “Climate change hasn’t been a factor yet, but towards the end of the century it’s going to rise from the middle of the pack and it’s going to become the most significant cause of biodiversity loss in the future.” Climate change is one of those accelerating concerns, he said. “It’s something our kids and our kids’ kids are going to have to deal with.” Forests are under pressure, for lots of reasons including urban expansion, pollution and invasive species. The Mixedwood Plains Ecozone is one of two main forests in Southern Ontario and it reaches an arm right up the Ottawa Valley, he said.

Nielsen explained there was recently a national study completed to report on state of forests in Canada. The “report card” is still a draft and hasn’t been released yet, he said, but he was able to share some of the data, which indicates the forest cover is highly fragmented, based on the quality of the land. “Where you can farm it, it’s been farmed,” said Nielsen. “That fragmentation is a point where we’ve lost ecosystem function. There’s a lack of cover and lack of continuity.” With temperatures on the rise, a fact he backed up with diagrams and figures, and a 30 per cent increase in population expected in the next 20 years, “we’ve got a lot of homework to do. This system won’t be able to absorb and deal with climate change.” And while the Mixedwood Plains Ecozone is in somewhat of a fragile state, it’s still the most diverse in terms of species. “It’s known as the banana belt of Canada,” said Nielsen, adding there are 2,700 species found and it boasts 25 per cent forest cover. “But that percentage is misleading.” Urban expansion and other factors mean there are less old, large and remote stands of trees and more early successional stands and converted forests. Fragmented forests are also often caused by agricultural use. No one’s blaming the farmers, who have had an uphill battle for many years, he said. “It’s the most productive agricultural land probably in the world, he said. The agricultural industry is seeing higher than ever commodity and land prices. “Woodlots are failing, farms are using even marginal lands to put their crops. There are implications on environmental integrity for sure.” Global change will have multiple interacting impacts on natural systems, said Nielsen, including changes in productivity (higher temperature, longer growing seasons, and changes in water balance such as drought), migration of plant species, increased area burned by forest fires and changes in insect dynamics.

Woodlots and climate change Continued from Page 14

“Our trees and ecosystems have adapted to a certain climate so a change means things are going to react and most organisms only have so many choices. They can adapt, move or die,” said Neilsen. The first impacts are going to be felt on those that have very narrow ecological niches. Things that can move are going to, as already evidenced. “This stuff is already happening. Possums are now fighting with raccoons in Toronto for the garbage. They weren’t there 20 years ago,” he said. When it comes to trees, it’s unclear just how they will react. “Species will react somehow, but we don’t quite know how,” said Neilsen. “As climate moves, some species of trees will retreat, some will advance.” There’s a 4-6 degrees average temperature increase forecasted for the future and experts have more or less come to a consensus that about two average degrees increase in temperature is manageable. Changes in global climate include more intense sun, more winds, storms and a change in ice depth on bodies of water. Neilsen said he’s heard real examples of climate change, from people in the Toronto area who learned to skate on a now mostly unheard of outdoor pond and conversely, Dutch peers who are now skating on their canals again. Climate change is far more evident in extreme northern areas, which are losing land at a progressive rate. Places to the extreme south are seeing changes as well, said Neilsen. “The Australian weather service just in-

SOME SPECIES VULNERABLE

“There’ll be winners and losers. Some species won’t care - humans, wasps, coyotes, dandelions, will do fine,” he said. More fragile species like tress used in maple syrup production, for example, are going to be under stress. So what can be done in the face of climate change? “Afforestation is something we need to take seriously,” said Neilsen. “We need to start talking to people about green infrastructure.” Emerging science indicates somewhere around 30 per cent forest cover is what is required as a bare minimum and if 40 per cent forest cover reasonably distributed will provide natural pollination, he said. “We need to increase forest interiors. We need to protect conservation lands and establish corridors,” said Neilsen. “We’re trying really hard to apply science to

creased its forecasting to include 55 degrees centigrade,” he said. Some have wondered why warmer temperatures won’t just improve growing conditions. “We’re worried about ecosystems and a nonlinear relationship between them,” said Neilsen. “Is the female flower opening at the time the male flower is releasing pollen at the same time insects have hatched to do the transfer?” Climate change will have more impact at the poles than the equator, more in winter than in summer and more at night than during the day. In terms of trees, there will be a migration lag and climate’s going to move way faster than trees, said Neilsen.

where we need it to be applied.” There are examples of small groups coming together to get the ball rolling on preparing for climate change. “Have an expert help identify how climate change will affect local areas and come up with a plan of how to deal with it,” he said. The ministry’s website has a toolbox and other useful resources for concerned public. For more information on climate change,

Beaver ponds offer live theatre for nature-lovers EMC lifestyle - With only two months before the deadline for my Beaver book arrives, I have been spending a lot of time at beaver ponds. I arrive before dawn and quietly sit for several hours, then return for a late afternoon shift. Beavers are primarily nocturnal but at this time of year are often active for a few hours before sunset and after sunrise. This past week I focussed on six Beaver ponds along the Basin Road, a quiet road that meanders along the Bonnechere River and extends into the southeast corner of Algonquin Park across from Bonnechere Provincial Park. In the first three days I observed no fewer than 22 Beavers. I also saw numerous turtles, six muskrats, five White-tailed Deer, two River Otters, many Canada Geese, seven species of ducks including Hooded Mergansers and Wood Ducks, Great Blue Herons, and many other birds. The Beavers were doing what they do best and that is eating. Many pulled up rhizomes of aquatic plants from the bottom of ponds. These were noisily devoured either on the pond’s surface or atop favourite feeding beds. The latter - often flat areas along the shore or islands of mud or bog - were easily identified by flattened

Michael Runtz Nature’s Way vegetation and piles of debarked sticks. Some Beavers harvested shrubs along the shore, dragging the branches to feeding beds. I watched one Beaver eat White Pine needles, a food not normally on the menu. Dams were particularly active spots. In the evening Beavers patrol alongside them, listening for rushing water that informs them of a leak. When one is detected, Beavers pull mud from the bottom and add it to the upstream side of the leak. They also add sticks to stop the flow. I watched one Beaver drag limbs across its dam to plug a culvert below it. Sometimes it would remove a stick from the downstream side of the dam and add it to the blockade.

MICHAEL RUNTZ

Beavers quickly plug leaks in their dams. Right, this Snapping Turtle crawled over the dam where minutes earlier the Beaver had been sitting. At one pond a doe White-tailed Deer casually strolled across a narrow dam. I have seen Moose, Eastern Wolves and Black Bears also use dams as bridges to ford streams. But not all animals traverse a dam by walking its length: some walk right over it. One evening at the pond where the Beaver was plugging the culvert, motion below the dam caught my

eye. A large otter swam to the dam and quickly scrambled up and over it. A few minutes later movement again caught my eye, this time from the dam itself. I looked to see a large Snapping Turtle pull itself atop the dam and then slowly clamber down into the water below. Beaver ponds are fascinating places to visit. In order to see their mak-

ers and the plethora of other animals that live in this habitat, be sure to sit still and stay quiet. A bit of patience is all you really need. And in the very near future, perhaps a bug jacket! If you know of Beavers currently working on a dam, I would love to hear from you. The Nature number is 613-3872503; email is mruntz@start.ca.

To do that she needs to recruit local singers and she’s hoping to sign up at least 200 people to help get the festival started off on the right foot. “I’m looking for people of all ages and vocal abilities,” said Hawkins, who has been in the local music scene for more than 25 years and is affectionately called ‘The Blues Lady.’ “It’s open to everyone and I do mean everyone. It’s a way of bringing community together through music.” She wants to hear from anyone who might be interested in forming the choir. More than 20 people have already signed up. “What I’d like to do is invite people to come out and rehearse with us,” she said. It’s a great opportunity for folks to receive a little free vocal training, she added. “It doesn’t cost anything and you’ll get some voice lessons for free.”

In terms of music, there’ll be a little something for everyone, said Hawkins. “It’ll be a combination of a little bit of gospel and a little bit of blues as well as a bit of contemporary,” she said. Hawkins, who is well known in the local communities through not only her performances but her Stop the Bulllying program, as well, has put the call out to local schools and is really hoping to get a good response from the public.

Contact Hawkins at 613292-1283 or maria@mariahawkins.ca or sign up at Main Street School of Music, which has come on board as a partner. Rehearsals will take place at Main Street School of Music on Saturdays beginning May 18 (also May 25 and June 1), from 2-4 p.m. Hawkins is also looking for a number of sponsors to help offset the cost of choir t-shirts. Priorpalooza is June 8 at Robert Simpson Park in Arnprior.

Cut for the cure Sydney Ross Co-op Student

SYDNEY ROSS/CO-OP STUDENT

Arnprior CBIC staff members Rhonda Sawyer, Caroline Obee, Sarah Butterly and Susie Kaebye take part in “cutting” the 33-inchlong hair of branch manager Shannon Olmstead.

EMC news – The staff and the Arnprior CBIC have launched their ‘Cut for the Cure’ pro motion to help in the fight against breast cancer. On April 26, all staff had crazy hairstyles as part of the campaign. Branch manager Shannon Olmstead will be getting her now 33 inches of hair cut into a different style in October. Customers of CBIC have an opportunity to donate towards what style Olmstead’s hair will be. The hairstyle with the most donations will be the one Olmstead receives. Eight to 10 inches of Olmstead’s hair will be donated through the Ottawa Hospital. All proceeds go towards the CBIC Run for the Cure. The annual run in various locations across Canada, including Ottawa, raises funds for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. It will be held this year on Sunday, Oct. 6.

OPP to host prescription drug drop-off day EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Renfrew OPP have joined a province-wide public safety initiative to encourage Ontario residents to dispose of old and unused prescription medication in a secure, environmentally-friendly manner. The detachment, which now covers Arnprior as well, will set up a collection depot on Prescription Drug Drop Off Day this Saturday, May 11. Citizens wishing to dispose of outdated, unused and unwanted prescription drugs may do so anonymously at the Renfrew OPP detachment at 532 Stewart St. in Renfrew between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. without even having to get out of their vehicles. The Controlled Drug and Substances Act (CDSA) prohibits anyone from possessing oxycodone or any other prescribed medication without a prescription. It is a criminal offence to offer or sell a prescribed medication to an-

other person. Purchasing another personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prescribed drugs is also illegal. Prescription drug misuse is the use of prescription drugs for non-medical purposes. Common prescription drugs being misused are opioid pain relievers (such as oxycodone), anti-depressants, and stimulants. Recent studies indicate 24 per cent of teens reported misusing prescription medications at least once within the previous year. Most of the teens took the medication from their family home, note police. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Police in communities across Ontario recognize prescription drug abuse can lead to increases in a wide spectrum of violent acts and property crimes. We support this excellent initiative as another way to reduce this threat to public safety in a secure manner,â&#x20AC;? said OPP Constable Merisol Primeau.

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Renfrew OPP is warning business owners and consumers to carefully examine all currency after a counterfeit $100 bill was passed in the area last weekend. Police observed two male and one female suspect passing counterfeit money in the Pembroke and Petawawa area. The suspect vehicle was located at Dairy Queen in Renfrew and two men were arrested. The counterfeit bill was seized after being passed and further investigation is taking place. Earlier this spring, police investigated one $5 bill and two $100 bills believed to be counterfeit. Police are also asking businesses to put their employees on alert and train them how to spot counterfeit money.

Therapeutic riding program seeking more volunteers Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

EMC lifestyle - The sophomore season of the Renfrew County Therapeutic Riding Program will begin shortly. The season’s clinics kick off in June, but first program co-ordinator Keryl Banks is seeking volunteers to assist with the lessons for children and adults with physical or development challenges. While the program is held in the Douglas area, several of the riders last year were from Arnprior and McNab-Braeside.

Each rider requires three volunteers to help with the lessons. One person is needed to lead the horse, and one to walk on either side to offer support. No experience is necessary. Training will be provided at clinics in May. Volunteers will also be given the opportunity to mount the horses to do exercises and routines that are introduced to riders. Lessons take place at Victory Farm on Cheese Factory Road between Renfrew and Douglas from June through October. The clinics for the volunteers

take place, also at Victory Farm, on Wednesday, May 15 at 6 p.m. and Saturday, May 18 at 10 a.m. To register, email kbanks@therapeuticridingrc.ca or call 613-5709862. Visit www.therapeuticridingrc.ca for more details. “This is a wonderful way to learn some new skills and be involved in a therapy and recreation that provides physical benefits as well as social, emotional and psychological gains,” says Banks. Volunteer riders are expected to exercise the program horses twice a week.

Arnprior District High School girls rugby coach Glenn Wallace said he is pleased with the way his young roster responded to the challenge of playing Ashbury, currently ranked sixth in the province, despite the final score of Ashbury 33, ADHS 3. Above, from left, Arnprior players Erica Campbell, Alison Forster and Abby Rampton defend an Ashbury break. Below, ADHS’s Amy Kippen carries the ball with Alison Forster and Hannah Scott in support. The Arnprior starting 15 players in the game had no less than nine Grade 9 and 10 students in it. “They have really impressed me with their commitment to constant improvemen,” said Wallace. “I felt the game was closer than the scoreline would indicate,, but we struggled to turn our edge in possession into points. Regardless, playing in hotly contested matches is the only way to improve as a squad and this match will have helped us move in that direction.”

The Arnprior Golf Club will continue its main Junior Orientation with Clinics for ages 12 to 16. These will continue to be ran from 12:00 to 1:00pm on May 4th (Registration only) 11th, 18th and 25th. Registration for these will be done on the first Saturday in May. Cost is $50 per Junior.

Braeside to be HQ for bass tournament Wake surf coming to Calabogie Peaks EMC sports - The Renegade Bass Tournament Association will host its 12th proam tournament on the Ottawa River launching out of Braeside Saturday, Aug. 10. The tournament is an event of which organizers are extremely proud and serves as a seed for competitive angling hopefuls. The tournament is quite different when compared to conventional pro-am formats in that the objective of the association is to introduce competitive fishing to newcomers and to heighten their skills through assistance from their pro Renegade Bass anglers. The pros donate their day, boat, equipment and fuel to take out a new angler in an ef-

fort of showing them the excitement of competitive liverelease bass fishing. The prize structure is exclusive to the amateurs, which ensures that the new prospects enjoy all of the fruits of the eventâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sponsors. This also ensures that the Pros are fixated on teaching their amateurs rather than competing themselves. The pros who do donate their day (despite the absence of prizes or money for them) is a wonderful testament to their desire to encourage and educate a new group of competitive anglers. Along with a day on the water with a pro, all competing amateur participants receive prize packages from se-

ries sponsors.As this is a competition, top placing amateurs will also receive additional prizes over and above what each participant receives. Past participants have raved about the experience and value received for the event, encouraging fellow anglers to signup the following year. It should be noted to the amateurs, there has always been a waiting list for this event with a limit of 30 competitors. Registration time is 6 a.m. with launch time at 7 a.m. The registration fee for amateurs is $200. Fish are to be weighed in at 2 p.m. A barbecue will be held during the weigh-in ceremony.

EMC sports - Calabogie Peaks Resort will be holding a first-time event, the Calabogie Wake Surf Championship July 11 to 13. Event co-ordinator Scott Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Ascenzo says the popularity of the sport is taking off. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wake surfing is a new and upcoming sport. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really developed in the southern U.S.A. and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coming up this way pretty quick,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The benefits of it is when you fall, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hurt yourself. What youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing is you are actually getting up to it about 10-feet behind the boat with a rope,â&#x20AC;? Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Ascenzo added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The boatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only going about 10 miles an hour, so when you get the groove you can let go of the rope and free surf, just like being in the ocean.â&#x20AC;? It gives you the great sensation of surfing just like on the coast, Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Ascenzo explained. The wake surfing championship circuit consists of 12 events in the world this year. They are held in Russia, Germany, Switzerland, Thailand, Mexico, Canada, and the United States, with several stops. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And one of those events is in Calabogie, so we are really looking forward to marketing this event on a global scale,â&#x20AC;? Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Ascenzo said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are hosting it at Calabogie Peaks on their shoreline. The beach front is going to have vendors and tents and boat displays.â&#x20AC;? Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Ascenzo said a parasailing unit from Haliburton is coming to Calabogie for the weekend, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be a great festival for all ages. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the beauty of the sport. It caters to young and old. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hurt when you fall and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of fun,â&#x20AC;? Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Ascenzo added. A featured performer at Calabogie will be

Grateful for CHEOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Support Jonathan was diagnosed with epilepsy, a complex neurological condition. Although some people with epilepsy have mild symptoms, others like

In fact during one such episode his parents had to call 911 to ensure their son would make it to CHEO as quickly as possible because he was struggling to breathe.

By Isabelle Mailloux Pulkinghorn

Jonathan Puerto was born healthy but a few weeks later began having seizures after he woke up from his naps. Worried, his parents Elizabeth Pineda and Jose Eduardo Puerto took him to their pediatrician who referred them to CHEO. Under the trusted care of Dr. Sharon Whiting, a pediatric neurologist, Jonathan underwent testing to identify the cause of the severe seizures he experienced on a daily basis, some of which left him         Tests revealed a lesion on the front left side of his brain, the result of a stroke he had likely suffered at birth. Then at six months of age, following additional testing to eliminate other conditions,

To make things worse, when Jonathan was six years old, he had a severe allergic reaction to the standard seizure drug that paramedics carry and went into anaphylactic shock.CHEO specialists were able to help him and to search for another medication to control his seizures.Dr. Whiting                 Ottawa Public Health to lobby for Jonathan. They                        now carries his new medication with him at all times to ensure paramedics can access it when he needs to be transported to CHEO. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That is the CHEO difference. Our sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doctor took the time to not only identify the best medicine for him, but she made calls herself to various agencies to ensure theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d use this new medication to keep our son safe,â&#x20AC;? explains Elizabeth, who shudders as she recalls a particularly severe seizure that lasted 24 hours. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Without that care plan, Jonathanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life would be at risk.â&#x20AC;?

Further tests revealed that Jonathan also suffers from cerebral palsy, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s since been diagnosed as having autism.Despite those additional challenges, Jonathan is thriving. He speaks three languages, and is in a special needs grade four class where he loves working on the computer, playing with trucks and being with his friends. One role he particularly enjoys is that of older brother to his 18 month old sibling David. Ultimately, the goal is for Jonathan to live his best life, seizure-free and safe. For now, there has been some progress: though he still has occasional seizures they only last 10 minutes or less, as opposed to hours at a timeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and their frequency decreased from daily episodes to once every two weeks.If Jonathanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seizures were to come back at a higher frequency, the next step would be brain surgery but his parents are hopeful that he can avoid thatâ&#x20AC;Ś at least for a while. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jonathan is a good boy and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so handsome,â&#x20AC;? coos Elizabeth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My husband and I are very proud of him because despite all his health issues he remains a positive little boy who is very loving and caring. Every morning he wakes up with a smile on his face. We are lucky to have him and his brother David.â&#x20AC;? Jonathan will be ten years old in June.With the help of his loving family, their friends and the expert CHEO staff, this young boy can trust that he is in good hands and that he will be well cared for with a treatment plan tailor-made to his needs.And this is something the Puerto family is truly grateful for.

Test drive a Ford; help Walter Zadow get a new play structure

EMC events - Walter Zadow Public School has been selected to partner with Ford Motor Company for a major fundraising event called ‘Drive 4 UR School’. The event, to raise funds for a new play structure for the school that will be adding full-day Kindergarten this year, will held be at the Arnprior Mall parking lot this Saturday, May 11 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For every person who registers for a free test drive that day, Ford will donate $20 to the school. The fundraiser will include a car wash, barbecue, kids activities and a raffle table among other things. A bake sale will not be part of the event because of the Katrina Lyman scholarship craft/ bake sale being held at the mall at the same time. All proceeds raised by Drive 4 UR School and its complementary events

will go towards the school’s playground fund. If you are unable to join in the fun Saturday, you can make a donation to the playground fund at the school office any time. Walter Zadow Public School is the largest elementary school in Arnprior. The school will be getting full-time kindergarten in September, which will bring big and exciting changes to the school. There is a very small play structure in the back yard that is well over 20 years old. For the last three years, a volunteer committee has been busy fundraising for a new play structure for the kindergarten-Grade 3 yard. The school’s plan is to have this in place for the start of the next school year.

Let’s talk Toastmasters: how to become a communicator Fred Schuck Distinguished Toastmaster

R0012086724

EMC lifestyle - A greater understanding is the bridge to harmony contentment and positive results. We can impact ones lives when we humble ourselves, remove our pride and listen well. A powerful approach, in business, it will create a balance between people and profit helping the bottom line, an opportunity to build relationship no matter what arena of

life you find yourself in using dialogue to shift our energy. Think about this: “Do you rather have me talk to you or share with you?” Is there a difference; you bet there is. Dialogue is the mastery of openness, with two or more people willing to engage in cross-table discussions, listening well to understand circumstances, events and feelings, sharing and respecting ideas and opinions than reaching an agreement for the common good. That’s leadership. Let me share three approaches how you as a facilitator, whether you are a supervisor, business owner, partner, educator, parent in a position of authority, can enhance the environment for others and yourself, resulting in huge benefits. 1. Listening effectively, give your undivided attention respect what is being said and do not prejudge opinions. 2. Understanding well, seek first to understand than to be understood. 3. How to get there? Use of involvement questions. Many books are written on this subject, many workshops provided, yet here I am sharing with you my own life experience. A greater understanding paves the way to enhanced working conditions, family relationships, student-teacher interaction. To lead a company successfully, Joel Manby says you have to have a balance between people and profit.

Hearing is something we are born with, listening effectively needs to be learned. Fourteen years of Toastmaster training has created the opportunity for me to listening effectively, opening my mind to focus on what is being spoken. Nothing at that moment matters except what you are listening to. When we apply this approach we will gain a greater understanding of the other persons feeling, concerns and challenges,

which in turn may shed a light on their behavior, as well as their goals and dreams. Something very powerful may arise out of good listening, that is, to transition that person into a new environment, why, they notice that you care. Imagine, you create that moment for openness. In that process of effective listening and

interacting, asking involvement question (where, how, why, when) a non-threatening environment is created putting the other person at ease. What are involvement questions? Questions which open the door for the opportunity to respond by elaborating on a topic or issue at hand, creating value by allowing sincere expressions by others. In this fashion a person is much more willing to talk about themselves. Fear is being removed, deep-rooted issues come to the surface, unshackling the person bondage now creating value, a real opportunity of identifying some one’s talent. With this approach the person is grateful for your interest in them and you are graceful for finding out hidden treasures in another human being. Let me ask you, does my article in any way strike you at the core? If so, you are not alone. Let the caring people of Toastmasters encourage you, guide you step-by-step to become an effective communicator that will impact your life. In summary: greater understanding is achieved when we listen effectively, understand well and ask involvement questions. To learn more how you can become an effective communicator, contact Fred Schuck, Distinguished Toastmaster, at 613-451-7728 (text) or fschuck@xplornet.ca. We meet in Arnprior and Renfrew.

Each day of the week marked with special chores EMC lifestyle - My sister Audrey said she was tired of the same old routine day in and day out. Since I was so very young when she made this comment, I had no idea what routine was. So I asked Audrey to print the word in my scribbler, and say what the word meant. Even at that early age I was very interested in words, and kept a record in a fat scribbler whenever I heard one I hadn’t heard before. My scribbler was getting quite thick, and even though I went over it often, I would forget what a word meant, and Audrey would have to explain it to me all over again. Which didn’t please her in the least! Well, Audrey could say what she liked about routine and how bored she was with it. But I liked how our lives on the farm were so orderly, and as far as I was concerned, I wanted nothing to change. Every Monday morning, our beds didn’t have to be made up, because that was the day, the sheets were stripped, and Mother did the washing. It didn’t matter if the snow was coming down in buckets, or it was raining so hard you could barely see the barns, Monday was wash day. And I knew that on Monday night there would be fresh sheets on our

Mary Cook’s Memories BY MARY COOK

beds, taken right off the clothes line and smelling of Spring and the outdoors. That night, I didn’t mind in the least going to bed. And every Tuesday, when we came from school, we could smell in the kitchen, the scent of newly ironed clothes. Shirts would be draped over chairs, tea towels stacked neatly in a pile on the kitchen table ready to be put in the drawer in the back-to-the-wall cupboard. Even our pinny aprons would be ironed and hanging on the hook by the stove. Without fail, Tuesday was the day the ironing was done. And our mealtimes never varied. Breakfast was the very same every morning. Big bowls of porridge, fried potatoes and back bacon, and thick

slices of homemade bread slathered with butter and jam. Dinner was always at noon hour. There was no such thing as lunch in the middle of the day. The routine of mid-day dinner never varied. Father expected, and got, meat and potatoes, one or two different vegetables, and an ample piece of homemade pie. After all, his work had begun at dawn, and even though his breakfast was ample, by noon hour it had worn off, and he was more than ready for what he called ‘a decent meal’. The routine continued at supper ... always there was meat and potatoes but dessert would be preserves. And we never went to bed without something to tide us over to morning. I couldn’t imagine this routine be-

ing broken. This was all part of our life on the farm. Friday night was always the time to get ready for peddling Mother’s wares in Renfrew the next day. There was a regular routine that never varied as long as we lived in Northcote, and was one of my favourite evenings in the entire week. Audrey and I would gather the eggs from the hen house, and Audrey would wash them in warm soapy water, and I would dry them with a clean flour bag tea towel. Mother would weigh them into their sizes on the egg scale - small, medium and large - and we would carefully pack them into 11-quart baskets. Mother’s sticky buns would be wrapped in wax paper, freshly plucked chickens singed, and laid out on the bake table on a clean white sheet, ready to be packed in the Model T in the morning. And every Saturday without fail, Mother headed into Renfrew to go door-to-door with what we had prepared the night before. Perhaps this was why Audrey complained so much about the routine. Because she was usually left at home to clean the house, whereas I was allowed to go with Mother. That didn’t mean I was spared

from Saturday chores however. When we got back to the farm, it was my job to churn the butter in the middle of the kitchen. Wrapped in a long white pinny, sitting on a straightback chair, I plunged the round wood disc into the fresh cream, waiting for the change in the sound coming from deep in the churn, when I would know that my labour had paid off, and soon there would be butter. Saturday was butter day, and that never varied. And Saturday was bake day. Bread would be ready for the oven by the time we got back from Renfrew, pie crusts would be filled, and always a slab cake would be at the ready just in case neighbours dropped in for a game of euchre that night. Every night, without fail, we had our prayers. They were said on our knees around Mother who sat in the rocking chair in the corning of the big upstairs hall, which my sister Audrey and I called our bedroom. And our prayers never varied. Sometimes we prayed so long, I would doze off with my head on Mother’s knee. And another day would be done. Another day, just like the one before it. Marked with its special chores for that day of the week. And Audrey would lament again about the boredom of it all.

Reaction mixed to proposed Ontario budget, NDP asks for input John Carter John.carter@metroland.com

EMC news – The Liberals are delighted, the Progressive Conservative disappointed and the NDP are reserving judgment. The budget’s fate hangs in the balance as the minority governing Liberals depend on NDP support to pass the budget and avoid a spring or summer election. While the PCs have announced they will vote against it, the NDP are asking what the public think of the budget before deciding whether to support it. In his response May 2, Renfrew-NipissingPembroke MPP John Yakabuski said the government is missing an opportunity to put the province on the path to better times. “Ontario’s future is bright – if we act today,” he said. He expressed his disappointment that despite Ontario having an unemployment rate higher than the national average for 75 consecutive months, the proposed budget “entrenches the damaging anti-jobs policies” of the Liberal government. “This was a real opportunity for the government to get off the path of unsustainable spending that has been costing us jobs,” Yakabuski said. “Instead of taking real action to strengthen the economy and reduce the deficit, this budget contains no jobs plan and actually increases spending by $3.6 billion in this year alone.” The budget forecasts a deficit larger than all other provinces and territories combined, and a total growing debt load that translates today to over $20,000 for every man, woman and child in Ontario, he said. “In just 10 short years the McGuinty-Wynne Liberals have doubled Ontario’s debt from $139 billion in 2003 to $273 billion in 2013,” Yakabuski said. “Instead of taking necessary

action, Kathleen Wynne is using the 2013 provincial budget in a cynical attempt to cling to power.” Every dollar paid in interest on the province’s debt is money that won’t go to schools, hospitals or investments in transportation infrastructure, he said. “The Liberals and NDP have chosen to mortgage our children’s future by continuing to spend money we don’t have,” Yakabuski added. “Ontario can do so much better, but for that to happen we need to change the direction of our province and the team that leads it.” He said the PCs have a plan that includes ideas to control hydro rates, lower taxes and fix outdated labour laws to compete for jobs. The PC plan would balance the budget by reducing the size and cost of government, lowering taxes to grow the economy; treating affordable energy as a cornerstone of economic growth, permanently reducing Ontario’s 386,251 pieces of regulation by at least a third, fixing outdated labour laws and modernizing the apprenticeship system to create 200,000 new skilled trades jobs. Meanwhile, Eastern Ontario Liberal MPPs Bob Chiarelli, Yasir Naqvi, Madeleine Meilleur, Phil McNeely and Grant Crack gathered in Ottawa May 3 to tout the benefits of their social-justice-heavy budget. New spending in the areas of youth employment, social assistance, health care, transit funding strategies, infrastructure funding and a 15 per cent reduction in car insurance rates are the key planks in the budget. The budget, crafted by new finance minister Charles Sousa, shows a deficit that increases to $11.7 billion, higher than last year’s but less than predicted for this year. The government is aiming to eliminate the deficit by 2017-2018 in order to start paying off the debt, which is

forecast to top $300 billion by 2015-2016. Chiarelli touted a health care investment aimed at seniors, which he said will provide relief for caregivers and increased independence for the elderly. “Our plan will increase investment in home and community care by more than $700 million by 2015-2016,” he said. The budget states this would help 46,000 more people receive home-based health care. Meilleur adopted NDP-appeasing language when she stressed “the importance of building a fairer society,” announcing new funding for developmental services and changes for the Ontario Works or Ontario Disability Support Programs that allow recipients to keep $200 from monthly earnings. The improvements would be funded by a $400 million investment over three years. For a single, childless ODSP or Ontario Works recipients, that means they would see their monthly cheque grow by $20. Meilleur was asked what that increase would mean to a recipient. “It means a lot for them, because they have been asking for that,” said Meilleur. “There is a big gap, so it is not going to be filled overnight … It is modest, I recognize, but it is going in the right direction.” Naqvi, the government’s new Minister of Labour, described his government’s $295 million Youth Jobs Strategy – a two-year initiative aimed at creating 30,000 job opportunities for youth. “This strategy would connect young people with careers they can build on,” said Naqvi, laying out the structure of the “comprehensive” program, which includes a youth employment fund, youth jobs strategy, youth entrepreneurship fund and youth innovation fund. Of billions in infrastructure money outlined

in the budget, $100 million of it is earmarked for roads and bridges in rural areas. In response to a question, Chiarelli said the guidelines for distributing that money have yet to be crafted, but stated municipalities who have plans already in place stand better chances of receiving funding. In the Ottawa area, ongoing projects are receiving funding previously agreed to by the province – among them the Confederation Line LRT project and the Highway 417 widening. No new specific expenditures have been announced, though demand remains high in Ottawa for both transit expansion funding and Ottawa River cleanup Questioned about NDP leader Andrea Horwath’s non-committal attitude towards the budget the previous evening, Chiarelli spoke of the many meetings that have occurred between the Liberals and NDP, as well as his party’s need conduct itself in line with its minority standing. Chiarelli also slammed the Ontario PC’s for preemptively withdrawing their support without having seen the budget. As for Horwath, Chiarelli said he understood her need to ensure what was being laid out in the budget was not just down-the-road promises, though his statement seemed to end with a veiled warning to Horwath about how a negative response could rile her supporter base. “The substance is there, the money is there, the commitment is there to honour what the NDP has asked for,” said Chiarelli. “I believe there would be a lot of very disappointed people across the province, including a lot of supporters of the NDP – including the unions – if she doesn’t support the initiatives she asked for.” Meanwhile, Horwath called on Ontarians to have their say on the provincial budget.

County seeks heritage status for river Firearms renewal fees to be re-instated

ceremonies at Miramichi Lodge on the Pembroke shoreline of the Ottawa River. Each of the three spent spoke about the river and Champlain’s contribution to Canada’s subsequent development, said Briscoe. “There would not have been a Vancouver Olympics, without the Ottawa River,” said Briscoe, arguing that the county’s creation was made possible by such explorers as Champlain coming up the Ottawa River and moving across the huge territory that became Canada. Briscoe said it’s her wish the letter stress the importance of the designation. “Please, please, broaden the thought process. Give it your best shot. The month of June is the time. Champlain deserves it. We deserve it. Canada deserves it.” Several county officials have said the designation, if nothing else, would underline the river’s place in Canadian history and attract more tourists. “I think it’s an opportunity of economics,” said Madawaska Valley Mayor David Shulist, who doesn’t understand why there’s been any resistance. “Wouldn’t it be great to have that (heritage designation) on our brochures when we’re advertising ourselves?” he added.

support efforts to streamline all aspects of the firearms regulatory system, reducing the burden on taxpayers and licence holders alike. “My motion M-439 seeks to transfer the functions and operation of the Canadian Firearms Registration System to a civilian agency. The savings realized by my motion could be used to lower fees for licence holders,” declared Gallant. Two other measures designed to encourage compliance with firearms regulations will be extended by a further year. “Shooters with expired POL licences are again being offered the opportunity to renew without upgrading to a PAL as the law requires,” said Gallant. “This measure, together with the amnesty on criminal charges for expired POL holders, will encourage former licence holders to comply with existing legislation without fear of being unfairly criminalized.” Both the POL renewal measure and criminal amnesty will expire May 16, 2014.

“People told us they are tired of being ignored by governments that seem more concerned with themselves than with the people who elected them. We put

their say on how to make the budget more accountable and the government more transparent, costsaving measures that will balance the budget without jeopardizing services, and

their issues on the agenda. Now we want to ask them how we achieve results that work for them,” Horwath said. The NDP has unveiled a website and toll-free number so Ontarians can have

EMC news – A fee waiver program for firearms licence renewal fees comes to an end next week. In a news release last week, Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant alerted gun-owners about the upcoming end to the program. The renewal fee has been reinstated by the federal government to help in its efforts to balance the federal budget by 2015. “I am reminding local hunters, collectors, and sport shooters of the previously announced end to the firearms licence fee waiver program,” said Gallant. “Non-restricted POL or PAL licence holders whose renewals are due before May 15, 2014, may renew their licences for free until May 16, 2013. I encourage the shooting community to take advantage of this program and apply for a licence renewal while the waiver is still in effect.” Gallant explained that “in this climate of fiscal restraint, the government has chosen to end the waiver program.” She stressed she continues to

EMC news – Renfrew County Warden Peter Emon is writing Prime Minister Stephen Harper asking again for support of heritage status of the Ottawa River. The letter on behalf of County council will also be copied to federal Environment Minister Peter Kent. The decision to write the letter, suggested by AdmastonBromley Mayor Raye-Anne Briscoe, was approved at the April 24 meeting of county council. Council has tried to have the designation approved before, but has been stymied by opposition by some Conservatives, including local MP Cheryl Gallant, who are concerned it might adversely affect property rights. There are 37 Canadian rivers already having heritage designation, including the nearby Rideau, French and Mattawa rivers. During Governor-General David Johnson’s visit to Pembroke last month, for National Volunteer Week ceremonies, Briscoe said the public comments by Johnson, Emon and Pikwakanagan Chief Kirby Whiteduck all underlined the importance of the river’s connection to Canada’s long and proud history. They did so as Briscoe enjoyed the

Grant awarded to Dragon Boat club EMC lifestyle – We did it Arnprior! What a wonderful day for Arnprior and the Draggin Behinds. The Arnprior Dragon Boat Club has been awarded a grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) for the purchase of a new BUK Dragon Boat, paddles and personal flotation devices, as well as for volunteer training and development activities. The Dragon Boat and equipment has been ordered and is scheduled for delivery to the Arnprior Marina on July 1. What a reason to celebrate, says the club. Its members certainly deserve a great round of applause for all the hard work and dedication over the last year. The official OTF recognition presentation will take place in August during the White Pine Festival in Arnprior with officials from the OTF and the provincial and municipal governments, as well as other local dignitaries, in attendance. Earmark Sunday, Aug. 25 for the OTF Recognition presentation and celebration at Robert Simpson Park in Arnprior. The festivities will also include a Dragon Boating introduction and practice session for the public. “Don’t be shy, give-it-a-try.” Dragon Boating is the fastest growing team sport in the world, second only to soccer. The sport fosters health and fitness, team building, goodwill and sponsorship, but it also means fun, building community spirit, and a real sense of belonging, not to mention fellowship between team members. It also means celebrations like the one

Members of the Arnprior Dragon Boat Club and the Draggin Behinds team were all smiles at the news they have received a Trillium Foundation grant. that was held in late April to celebrate the OTF grant. A super time was had by all and it was a wonderful opportunity for members to rekindle the team spirit built over the last season. Check out the photograph – see the big smile on everyone’s face. “We did it guys.” When members are asked why dragon boating, the responses almost always reflect the basic principles of the sport: fellowship, teamwork, health and fitness, fun, and above all, unity and community. The Arnprior Dragon Boat Club season is expected to start in June and end with Dragon Boat festivals in Carleton Place and Kingston in early September. For more information about the Arnprior Dragon Boat Club and its activities, please contact arnpriordragonboat@ gmail.com.

THANKS

Arnprior Dragon Boat Club president Darrel O’Shaughnessy, and its directors Susan Burns-McIntyre, Bruce Heino, Merv McIntyre, and Betty O’Shaughnessy thank the Ontario Trillium Foundation and the Ontario government that funds OTF for this “very important grant.” They explain it will help increase opportunities for health and fitness activities in the community. O’Shaughnessy also thanks the Town of Arnprior, the Dragon Behinds’ Dragon Boat Team and others who were involved with the project for their support and contributions, which led to the overall success of the OTF funding initiative. “Thank you so much everyone, paddles-up, and stay tuned.”

EMC lifestyle – April has certainly been a busy month at the Arnprior Legion. The president and officers attended the district convention in Cornwall. This district’s deputy commander, Comrade Garry Pond, was elected district commander and the successful weekend was well attended. The elections for Arnprior Branch 174 were held Sunday, April 28 with friends and comrades from the Almonte Legion conducting the elections and scrutineering the ballots. Last year’s officers and executive committee members were elected for the 2013-14 year adding three new members. Susan Simmonds, Brian Kilby and Bobi-Jo Smith were welcomed to the committee. Donations, both in and out, are considered the life blood of the Legion. It is well-known the legion’s mission is to assist all veterans in need and to help many other organizations with donations. Back in March it was an in donation for Branch 174, as members were very thankful

for the gift of a defibrillator from the Federal Super National Annuity association. This is a large, association of retired pensioned ex-service and retired RCMP members who work and lobby on their behalf. Breakfast this month was a special day as we welcomed MP Cheryl Gallant once again within a month, this time to present well-known Arnprior resident Art Smith with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal. A number of members were out in force for the town’s Pitch-In Day doing their bit to be sure the Legion and Veteran parks were clean, tidy and up to par in keeping with a beautiful Arnprior. On this Saturday, May 11, a celebration for Mother’s Day will see the third annual Mother’s Day Tea being held in the Legion Hall. This is becoming a very popular event, with entertainment and a fancy ‘Hat Auction’, just in time for church on Mother’s Day Sunday. Tea in china cups with a variety of treats will be served from 2 to 4 p.m. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Assessing Speech Language in Children Would you like to have a tea party or play with the water park today? Preschool aged children have so much fun during their speech-language therapy sessions that language learning is never a chore. The activities used in speech-language therapy are fun and motivating for young children to keep them engaged and learning! May is Speech and Hearing Month! Arnprior and District Memorial Hospital provides an outpatient program for preschoolers as a partner in the Renfrew County Preschool Speech and Language Program. The program provides assessment and a range of interventions to families of children, from birth to Senior Kindergarten, who present with a speech and language disorder or delay. The Renfrew County Preschool Speech and Language Program is free to families living in Renfrew County and accepts referrals directly from parents, physicians and care providers. To make a referral to the Sprouting Speech in Renfrew County (through the Community Care Access Center); families, childcare providers or physicians may contact the lead agency of Sprouting Speech at 1-866-994-8124 x5905. Once all the initial paperwork is completed, a referral package is sent to the Speech Language Pathologist (SLP). At ARH our SLP is Amanda Rietschlin and she will set up an initial meeting with the family. At the first meeting, the SLP reviews the background information and spends some time playing and interacting with the child to get a detailed picture of where they are at in their speech and language development. SLP Amanda Rietschlin works with a young client at Arnprior Regional Health. Depending on the needs of the child and the concerns of the family, this can take up to three visits. After the assessment is completed, the SLP books an appointment with the parents alone, to review the findings and make plans for next steps. The final stage of the assessment process provides hands-on coaching to the parent while the parent engages with the child. Using play, book sharing, and every day routines, parents learn evidence-based strategies and techniques that are easy to use and can be done at home to help their child develop his/her communication skills. Some children require more intensive, regular intervention and work directly with the Speech-Language Pathologist for a certain block of time. Children who may require more support: those with speech that is very difficult to understand, children who stutter, or children who require more structured activities and repetition built in to help them learn new concepts, vocabulary, or grammatical forms. If you are wondering about how well your child is able to communicate, there are reputable sources of communication milestones available online. You can check out the Sprouting Speech website at www.sproutingspeech.on.ca for an excellent list of timelines and some suggested activities that your child will enjoy doing with you. If you have any concerns about how well your child is able to communicate, don’t wait! Call Sprouting Speech today at 1-866-994-8124 x5905.

A child should use 200 or more words by the time they are 2-3 years old and by the age of 4 1/2 their vocabulary should consist of approximately 2000 words.

Summer adventures offered at the Arnprior Public Library EMC lifestyle - Welcome to our weekly column for news, events and information about your library. Get your passport and GO to join the fun at the library this summer. This year’s TD Canada Summer Reading Club theme will highlight all sorts of travel and adventure. Our detailed calendar is now available for pick-up at the library circulation desk, or on our website www. arnprior.library.on.ca. The calendar is chock full of programs running weekdays from July 2 to Aug. 16. Each program is age specific and features stories, songs, puppets, crafts and games. Registration is required for programs running Monday through Thursday. Registration begins Monday, June 3 at noon in the library. Highlights include the return of our ever popular Detective Dewey session, bedtime story times (including another Stuffies Sleepover!), a French program, and, of course, the TDSRC wrap-up parties for those who’ve been busy logging their reading accomplishments this summer. Our regular drop-in preschool programs will run from July 5 to Aug. 16.

Library budget figures clarified

Watch for exciting changes to this program in September as the local elementary schools begin full-day kindergarten in the area. While you’re planning your summer at the library, remember there’s a special bedtime story time planned for May 29 when we’re inviting grandparents to join their grandchildren for stories, songs, treats and the creation of a special keepsake. Registration is now open for this program and spaces are limited. Follow the library on Face Book and Twitter for daily updates on news and events at your library www.arnprior.library.on.ca.

EMC news – The Arnprior Public Library’s operating grant from the Town of Arnprior is actually $262,431, not $292,371 as reported in last week’s Chronicle-Guide, says librarian Karen DeLuca.

GWEN STORIE/SUBMITTED

Among those at the event, in back, are store staff members Deb Gahan, Gwen Storie, Pamela Mitchell and Karen Crozier; and in front authors Barbara Fradkin and Mary Jane Maffini. The month-long Authors’ Festival wrapped up Saturday with a writers workshop.

The $292,371 was last year’s budget figure. The amount requested from Arnprior by the library board was $272,717 with the final total being that minus a true cost accounting figure of $10,286. The library also

gets $85,899 from McNab-Braeside (up from $35,000), $14,263 from the province and $1,200 from Lanark (not Monarch) Highlands in its 2013 budget. Along with operating and related income, the library’s total rev-

enues are budgeted at $416,935, up 8.94 per cent over last year. The increase includes a mandatory boost in personnel expenses of $17,921 and information technology of $4,000, as well as $950 in priority operations.

A funny thing happens when you tell kids they matter. They believe you. An alarming 40,000 kids drop out of high school every year. Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada are committed to changing that. They provide a safe and supportive place where kids can develop confidence and life skills. They offer programs like Rogers Raising the Grade to help kids with their studies. The Club is a place where kids can drop in, so they’re less likely to drop out. TM

EMC lifestyle - The choice of materials for your patio or terrace is up to you, but such a choice should be made right at the beginning of your strategy. It will determine the amount of money needed for your plan. There are a variety of available materials, each with their advantages and inconveniences. Some will require more upkeep while others are more expensive. Durability and solidity are major concerns when you choose your building material. You may also combine different materials for unique special effects as well as optimizing your available budget. The most popular materials used for patio and terrace are wood, concrete slabs, stone, composite and synthetic materials. Avoid materials that may crumble in winter, brittle and flimsy material as well as slippery substances. Wood is often chosen for a terrace. This structure is usually built a few feet up from the ground so will require support pillars and railing. You may also choose

Climbing flowers, such as clematis, will soften the lines of your patio railings. wood for structures placed directly on the ground but be sure to use treated wood to avoid rotting. Wood is a favourite even though it requires yearly upkeep; its price, simplicity and warmth are attractive to many homeowners. Your floor can also be made of cement or

stone slabs: using both will allow you to emphasize specific areas or zones. You can also use a base made up of bricks or granite since they require little upkeep and will resist to weather changes. See PATIO, page 53

Building the walls with concrete is an option, he says, that needs to be decided and requested early in the planning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;ICF construction is already a decade underway, but breaking away from yesterdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s standard is still a slow process for many builders.

At the construction site however, the preassembled concrete forms lock together, like Lego, to build the walls far quicker than woodframing, with far less waste, so its popularity with builders is only a matter of time. More information is available online at www.nudura.com.da.com

Build a concrete home and save ICF system interlocks to create one monolithic wall with a thickness from 10 to 30 centimetres (4 to 12 inches),â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This immediately gives your house better wind and ďŹ re protection, better sound resistance, improved temperature control and many additional occupant comforts,â&#x20AC;? Blyth explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Better still, the insulation and durability delivered can save you up to 70 per cent on your energy bills,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You get a far stronger and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;greenerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; house but with a warm and inviting atmosphere,â&#x20AC;? he added.

And yet, once the practicality and the good health of the occupant are assured, it is the aesthetic beauty of the house inside and out that is an equally important â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;dream homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; feature, Blyth continued. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A concrete home can be designed outside for smartlooking brick, or for more creative ďŹ nishes like stone, stucco, wood siding and more, just like a traditional house.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Inside, all of the beautiful architectural shapes, like arches, bay windows, and speciďŹ c door styles â&#x20AC;&#x201C; can be easily achieved for a spectacular interior design,â&#x20AC;? he added.

Eye-popping, inspiring, beautiful kitchen sinks EMC lifestyle - For those who dare. It is the sink today that is taking its rightful place as the most popular feature in a 21st century kitchen. Indeed, installing one that dazzles the on-looker is a pleasure of the kind that keeps on giving. So, how do you choose the right dazzler for you? “We guide homeowners and renovators by asking a lot of questions about their taste, beauty preferences, family size, kitchen size and home décor,” says Diana Elliott at Blanco Canada, an industry leader in kitchen art technology. “Your choice may also be influenced by a favourite colour or material, by craftsmanship, or by a design you’ve already seen – and you may also be influenced by practical considerations like budget, installation challenges, and the amount of surface space available. We always advise homeowners to take their time in choosing the very best quality they can afford since it is usually quite costly to upgrade later after countertops are cut and installed.” If you’re looking for excitement though, she says, don’t miss all the fuss right now over ‘silgranit’, a superstar material for sinks that was showcased this year at the 2013 Interior Design Show in Toronto. “Silgranit is a patented material that combines 80 per our colours are imbued with a subtle mineral pearlescence – and wait until you see how Cinder’s natural stone texture complements so many other colours in your kitchen. It’s complex but velvety warm; dramatic but also serene.” The two trendiest Cinder-coloured sinks this year, according to Elliott, are the Precis Cascade, a lavish single-bowl undermount, and the module-designed, Blanco Modex, an equally elegant cubic-bowl topmount designed with accessories to significantly increase the surface workspace. A large filigree cutting board in an ash wood composite can be moved across the entire sink if

needed, or positioned efficiently to suspend the stainless steel colander over the bowl at the same time. “The Modex is an attention-getter,” Elliott continued, “and what separates the Precis Cascade model from all other sinks is its revolutionary bi-level bottom. The lower level is ideal for large pots and pans and the raised level can function much like a second bowl, perfect for cutlery or glassware, or for washing fruit and vegetables. ” As well as Cinder, both of these models are fashioned in other colours as well.

Planning the perfect pool for your family minimum space around your home and property limits. If your yard is on an incline, you will need to choose between levelling your yard, which might require installing a talus or a low wall, and building a balcony that directly reaches the pool. While this latter option will only work with an above-ground pool, it will make it seem like an in-ground pool. Since they are more affordable, aboveground swimming pools are popular choices with many homeowners. What’s more, they can be removed or relocated fairly easily. These types of pools can be accessed with either a ladder or directly from a balcony. A more costly option, in-ground swimming pools can make beautiful additions to a backyard, but they are not easily moved.

R0012078571

EMC lifestyle - What could be more exciting than deciding to install a swimming pool in your back yard? Since this will probably be the only pool you buy for your home, make sure make the right choice. This means taking your family’s needs and the potential of your yard into consideration. If you plan on doing lots of laps, go for a long, straight pool. If you like to jump off the diving board, opt for a deeper pool. If you have kids, consider a curvy or round pool that will allow them to play various water games. The size of your property and the depth of your pockets will play a determining role in how large a pool you can install. You also need to take into consideration any hydroelectric lines that may be buried under your property as well as any municipal bylaws that require a

Patio tips and tricks Synthetic materials include fiberglass, recycled plastics that resemble wood as well as waterproof fibers. All these synthetic materials are very durable and are often found in original garden designs.

Like any landscaping project, the trick of the trade is planning, lots of planning. Composite is made with wood fibers and recycled plastics. It is both durable and maintenance-free while environmentally friendly. Composite will resist to weather extremes, bad weather as well as U.V. rays without deterioration. PROMINENT ANGLES

Left to its own device, your patio may present prominent angles, which need to be hidden or camouflaged for a harmonious look into your garden.Like any landscaping project, the trick of the trade is planning, lots of planning. So you need plants to the rescue! First, determine the amount of sunlight in the space you wish to landscape. You should also consider planting perennials around your patio if you wish to avoid having to transplant every year. TO LIGHTEN THE PATIO

ders. At each corner, plants such as pink gypsophila (Baby’s breath) will softly cloud and camouflage unwanted details. On each side, place physostegia virginiana or false dragon’s head, which will emphasize the lightness. Hostas will nicely round up this simple design, especially the Royal Standard hosta, which stands at 120 cm tall. The front of the border would be exquisite with a touch of aromatic lavender. In addition to its remarkable scent, the small violet-blue lavender flowers will appear in July and stay until the first frosts. Flower bushes such as Hydrangea Grandiflora, which stands at three metres, will proffer white flowers that will change to pink come early fall.

To lighten up a patio made of cement, choose high plants with pale flowers alongside its borders.

Although wood already possesses warmth and charm, climbing vines or climbing flowers will further soften the design of your patio. You may also choose small flowers that will effectively highlight the wood.Alpine carnations with its pink flowers for June- July, as well as hardy geraniums, which flower from June until October, will all provide you with an abundance of colors and scent to last you through the summer season…and beyond.

Renovating a bathroom EMC lifestyle - The work of renovating a bathroom starts with the plumbing and electricity. Those steps should be entrusted to qualified professionals who are aware of current building regulations and can conform to standards. Tell your plumber where you want the bathroom fixtures, taking into account the layout of the floor joists and the position of the drain. Explain to your electrician where you need electrical outlets and ventilation. If you want a heated floor or a whirlpool bath, he or she will ensure that there are free circuits available on your breaker panel. If there are none, the panel will have to be upgraded. Painting the walls and ceiling and replacing the floorcovering are much easier when the bathroom has been stripped of its old fixtures. Start with the paintwork and then proceed to

the floorcovering; be sure to choose coverings that are easy to maintain and water and humidity resistant. The next step consists of installing the new fixtures and the taps. If you have opted for a custom ceramic shower that has to be built on site, start with that job, which shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t present any difficulty for an experienced handyman. Next, install the bath, toilet and pedestal sink. Proceed with the sink first if it is the type that is to be installed on a vanity or countertop. If you have a built-in sink, fix it to the counter and then to the cabinet unit. The next step is the installation of the cupboards, drawers and countertop, if the latter isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t part of a vanity. Choose materials that are easy to maintain and water resistant. The final step is to install light fixtures, mirrors, towel racks, grab bars and other accessories.

French doors are suitable for all styles of home and let in an abundance of natural light.

French or sliding patio doors? EMC lifestyle - Unlike sliding patio doors, french patio doors are hinged and open inwards. This means they arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t especially designed to be left open, like sliding doors, to let in the fresh air on warm days. Even though sliding doors can be used to access the backyard, french doors are more specifically designed to fulfill the role of a main door. In other words, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a great choice for energy efficiency if they serve as entry doors, where there is a regular flow of traffic in and out of the home. Their one drawback is that they require a lot of interior space, whereas sliding doors donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. In fact, french doors must be able to open completely without encumbering the room, with

nothing in the way to hinder their opening. Nevertheless, french doors are suitable for all styles of home and let in an abundance of natural light. They are extremely esthetic and come in a vast choice of panels, sizes, and glass pane formations. Some come with stunning stained-glass, beautiful moldings and elegant handles, and frames in wood, steel and PVC all have their special characteristics. The key element to look for is impeccable construction, durability and optimum resistance to bad weather. An efficient locking system is also essential. The cost of good quality french doors is certainly higher than sliding doors, although the latter are now available in styles that resemble french doors.

Decisions to make when constructing a garden shed

Building a jungle gym

EMC lifestyle – There are four big decisions you need to make before building a garden shed. They are: LOCATION

If you’ve decided to build a garden shed on your property, your first decision will be its location. First of all, find out about municipal regulations concerning the placement of sheds on private property. These usually specify the minimum distance from the residence, property boundaries, and public services, as well as the maximum surface area and height and authorized finishing materials. Then measure the available space at your chosen location, taking into account what you’ll use the shed for. If you’re going to store the snowblower there, for example, ensure that you can access your shed at all times. USE

Generally intended for storing tools, lawnmowers, bicycles, patio furniture, and pool and garden equipment, the shed could also be used as a workshop for a tinkerer or gardener. How you decide to use your shed will influence the surface area, height and comfort factor. DESIGN

How you plan to use your shed will influence its surface area, height, and comfort factor. Sheds are available in a wide range of styles and materials. Most manufacturers offer a choice of models, including basic, traditional, luxury, and made-to-measure. Whether you opt for a wood or metal shed, take into account the quality of the construction, its solidity, durability, storage facilities, upkeep requirements, as well as the quality and practi-

cality of its design. ASSEMBLY

Ensure that the foundations are solid enough to support the size and weight of the construction. If you are handy, you could build the shed yourself by selecting a ready-to-assemble kit or you could have it assembled by a specialist.

EMC lifestyle - The computer craze has left a lot of outdoor toys gathering dust, and children end up spending a lot of time indoors – not getting any exercise. Looking for a way to get them back outside? Why not give them the irresistible desire to play in the great outdoors? Building an authentic jungle gym at home will provide them with lots of challenges and hours of fun. Building a jungle gym can be completed slowly over time. The space dedicated to your kids’ play area can fill up over the years as you add new elements. And there is no lack of options when it comes to building a jungle gym. You can include swings, slides, ropes and ladders for climbing, a bunk house, a sandbox, rings, trapezes and other fun things. There is no lack of things for kids to do and create. If your handyman or handywoman skills are rusty, a wide selection of family-sized jungle gyms containing various elements built into a single structure is available. These parks can be easily installed in a corner of the yard. The best place to set up a jungle gym is in a shaded area where kids can play without you having to worry about the harmful effects of the sun. Choose a spot that is easily visible from the house for better supervision, and ensure that the playing surface is soft – such as sand or grass – to absorb eventual tumbles.

A landscape gardener coming to the rescue small plants will give an impression of depth. Landscape gardeners can also advise you on choosing the most suitable species for the climate. Larger spaces lend themselves perfectly to the addition of trees and shrubs. There is also the possibility of defining different zones in the garden in order to create an area for relaxation, a section for a vegetable plot, a place to entertain guests and a play zone for kids.

Stone pathways, wood decks, or any other decorative element can be added to stunning effect. The possibilities are endless. No matter what your landscaping preferences may be, a professional landscape gardener can give you precious advice depending on your style – country or modern, English or Japanese – in order to create the garden of your dreams.

EMC lifestyle - The very latest in interior decorating: a home and garden that are the envy of the neighbourhood, a house that doesn’t show its age. Keeping up with this combination of factors could lead to a considerable increase in the value of your property. The upkeep of a home often just involves small yearly modifications and simple jobs. A neat exterior, well-pruned hedges, materials in a good state of repair and a clear, unimpeded view of the home all add up to a wellmaintained property and a proud homeowner. Where the exterior is concerned, maintaining the siding should be your priority, as this will protect your home from bad weather for years to come. The roof is the other part of your home that should never be neglected. For example, the state of the roof could deteriorate if moss is allowed to cover it. Don’t neglect the concrete surrounding an in-ground pool and always protect garden furniture from the harmful rays of the sun. Did you know that a well-planned yard can increase the value of your property? As they grow, the trees you plant will add to the worth of your home as well as adding to your comfort both outside and inside: trees block the wind in cool weather and provide shade on hot summer days. That can mean a reduction in both air-conditioning and heating costs. So give free rein to your gardening talents by planting trees, creating flower beds and establishing hedges. Lastly, spread compost to enrich your soil for a beautiful lawn and don’t forget to weed regularly in order to enhance the appearance of Being proactive about home maintenance your shrubs and flowers.

the condition of the fence, it may also need to be sanded to ensure a smooth, even surface that allows the wood to accept the paint better. • Prime and paint: Priming is an essential part of the fence-painting process and should not be overlooked. It not only gives the paint something to stick to, it helps to protect the wood against the elements. However, if you choose to use a stain, priming may not be necessary. • Don’t be afraid of colour: Experiment with more than the just the basics to add a creative twist. Darker shades with green undertones like the Benjamin Moore colour Midnight, give a stately, formal look to the yard, while bold and playful Stuart Gold provides a burst of bright colour for whimsical flair.

EMC lifestyle (NC) - A beautiful, wellmaintained fence adds to the value and outdoor aesthetics of your home. Whether painted or stained, a fence must be constantly maintained over the years to be protected against snow, rain, hail, hot sun and UV rays. Sharon Grech, the colour and design expert for Benjamin Moore, shares step-by-step tips on how to give your fence a facelift this spring: • Assemble the tools: Half the battle when updating a fence is in the preparation. Have all the tools ready to go, including drop cloths and brushes, paint trays and tape, and any necessary cleaning supplies. • Clean and prep: Taking the time to properly clean and wash away any debris that has collected over the winter ensures a fresh canvas that will yield favourable results.

Oh, no! Creepy, crawly insects in the garden! EMC lifestyle - In a healthy garden, useful animals, insects and bacteria outnumber the harmful types. In fact, 90 per cent of all organisms found in gardens are harmless. Nevertheless, your garden may become a gathering place for unwelcome vermin and mushrooms, which can harm your plants. With the right gardening techniques, how-

ever, it is possible to limit the damage. The main rule every gardener should remember is that the greater the variety of species, the more resistant your garden will be. Of course, it helps to choose plants suited to your soil and to your natural environment. Be sure to space plants wide enough apart to ensure good air circulation, which helps to avoid the development of various viruses. Re-

member that plants can suffer from stress, such as that caused by crowding, and that can make them more vulnerable to disease. Despite your best efforts, healthy plants can succumb to diseases or infestations. The sooner you realize that a plant isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t doing well, the easier it will be to treat it. With this in mind, walk around your garden on a regular basis and learn to recognize signs of infestation.

Whatever you do, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t panic when a few aphids appear on your rosebush! Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face it, there are worse problems in life, especially considering that spraying the roses with a dish soap solution will almost always get rid of them. After one or two applications, the aphids will lose the battle. The essential thing to keep in mind is that eco-friendly gardening techniques will help your soil continue to nourish all kinds of plants longer, and yes, the environment will thank you.

EMC lifestyle - Rocks may be cold and hard, but rock gardens can exude calmness and beauty when complemented with various plants and ďŹ&#x201A;owers. To create this desired effect, you must carefully consider the types, shapes and arrangement of the rocks used, along with the types of plants and ďŹ&#x201A;owers that will help to decorate them. The ďŹ rst step in creating a spec-

tacular rock garden is digging, since rock gardens look best when placed on a slope. Then spread a 20-centimetre thick layer of gravel, covered by a 45-centimetre-thick layer of substrate. Compact the earth well at this point to provide a solid support. Finally, dig out pits in various sizes to accommodate the individual rocks and keep at least half of the total area for groupings of plants. If you are having difďŹ culty deciding which types of plants to choose, make a trip to your local nursery. Not only will it have a wide variety of plants and ďŹ&#x201A;owers to choose from, but its staff can also be an invaluable source of helpful information and ideas. Once you have decided on which plants and ďŹ&#x201A;owers you will use, plant them ďŹ rmly, cover their roots with

a newer version? New lawnmowers are more fuel efficient and produce less harmful emissions. Also, you may want to consider a front-, rear- or all-wheel drive mower as they will reduce mowing time substantially. â&#x20AC;˘ Bring on the pollinating pals. Provide a pesticide-free sanctuary for butterflies and bees by growing a diverse variety of flowers. Flowers such as wild lilac, goldenrod and lemon balm are particularly inviting to our flying friends. â&#x20AC;˘ Loosen the soil. Soil loosening makes it possible for oxygen to reach the roots of the plants and also creates a better looking flowerbed. In smaller beds you can get by with hand tools, but if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re working with larger areas, a rotary cultivator is the way to go. â&#x20AC;˘ Keep the mulch. Leave the clippings on your lawn. Not only do you eliminate the time to bag and dump the mulch, but the clippings fertilize the soil and lawn.

Over these many years together they have camped, hiked & canoed with family and friends. They keep active, in the city, with curling, golfing, “Mario services”, cooking scrumptious meals for friends & family, gardening & looking after their grandchildren. They are best known as “Grandma & Grumps” to the 7 grandchildren (Justin, Kayla, Katherine, Liam, Connor, Quinn & Kathleen) from their 4 sons Martin, Thomas, Kevin & Brendan. They also have 2 grand-dogs (Daisy & Toby). While they enjoy retirement & time to travel the world, D’Arcy can be found relaxing with the newspaper or his iPad accompanied with a glass of wine in hand. Erna does enjoy wine too, but she is equally content to sit with her husband of 50 yrs. with her cup of tea as she knits or plays Suduko. Congratulations for the many miles behind you and the many more yet to come!

Marcel Girard, Lynn Grinstead and Alan Rowsom in a scene from Don’t Dress for Dinner that wraps up its run this Friday and Saturday evening at the CEC.

Rave reviews for Prior Players, final two performances set for this Friday, Saturday Charlotte Leitch Prior Players

EMC entertainment – Laughter filled the Christian Education Centre on the weekend as the Prior Players performed a flawless production of the comedy farce Don’t Dress for Dinner. Theatre patrons raved about the play, authored by Marc Camoletti and adapted by Robin Hawdon, and the fine performance of the actors. Always on the edge of their seats, the audience members were surprised with the twists, turns and hilarious mix-ups of each of the characters. Amanda Dixie, who plays the cook Suzette, performed well in her comedic role leaving the audience in stitches with her demands for extra cash (and more cointreau). Leading actress Angela Yach (Jacqueline) plays the wife of Bernard. This talented actress carries the plot, playing her part well as the ‘suspicious wife’. Alan Rowsom plays Bernard who plans the weekend affair. His quiet humour and bumbling mixed-up character are a comedic contrast to his arrogant friend Robert (Marcel Girard). Robert’s sudden rants are hilarious as he attempts to give an explanation, or an excuse, for the web of mischief and mistresses. Only her second time on stage, Lynn Grinstead performs the part of Suzanne with great style. The Parisian mistress of Bernard arrives only to discover what would have been a special birthday weekend is anything but special. Rounding out the play is Ed Murphy as the cook’s husband

EMC events â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The time for the Arnprior Canine Associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual dog show has rolled around once again and it promises to be a special one with the club celebrating its 25th anniversary and putting on its 75th show. At the end of the three-day event, there will be two special dogs walking away with coveted Best in Show and Best Puppy in Show honours. Among the highlights of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s show are Dachshund and French Bulldog specialties, says ACA spokesperson Susan Coulson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Expect to see lots of Dachshunds and French Bulldogs. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be extra prizes and awards for them,â&#x20AC;? said Coulson. A baby puppy specialty is sure to bring out some sweet little canines, as well, said Coulson. Puppies in this class are from three to six months old. It is expected more than 260 dogs will come through the doors throughout the weekend with owners from across the country. The event runs May 10, 11 and 12 at the Nick Smith Centre in Arnprior. The public is welcome to attend. Admission proceeds go towards the Arnprior and District Humane Society. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Come out and see the dogs all dolled up,â&#x20AC;? said Coulson. Saturday is generally the biggest day for the show, she added. A silent auction and vendor displays are part of the weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s activities.

Search still on for driver who killed dog EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Police continue to look for the driver of a vehicle who injured a woman and killed her dog in Arnprior in mid-March. Renfrew OPP community services officer Janice Sawbridge said that the investigation is ongoing, but there hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been a break in the case yet. On Saturday, March 16, the woman and her dog were waiting for a walk signal at the southeast corner of Daniel Street and Baskin Drive about noon. Witnesses say when the light turned green, they started to cross the street, but were hit by a

white mid-sized vehicle that had stopped at the light before turning right onto Baskin Drive. The woman suffered minor injuries, but the dog was seriously injured and later died at a veterinary clinic. The man driving the vehicle stopped briefly, but left the scene before police arrived. Sawbridge noted that as he had hit the pedestrian and her dog, he should have stayed on the scene to give a statement to police. Anyone who has information that could help police find the driver is asked to call 1-800-2228477 or the Arnprior OPP detachment.

EMC entertainment – He played in Frank Sinatra’s orchestra and conducted Tony Bennett’s band, played for the powerful and famous, had a role in momentous national and world events, and now he welcomes musicians to join his band. The Valley Concert Band’s optimal number of participants is 35. It has 31. The percussion section could use one or two more. A tenor sax player or two would be nice. Conductor Keith Estabrooks - a big reason why musicians are willing to travel from as far away as Orleans to practice under him isn’t picky about who joins. “I refuse nobody. We’re looking for all instruments,” said the Woodlawn resident who recently did a show with Josh Groban. “It’s a good chance to come out and play. After high school’s done is not the end of world. There’s still a place to play.” The band practices Thursday evenings at the legion in Arnprior. Ages run everywhere from 16 to folks in their 70s, and members come from communities such as Almonte, Pakenham, Constance Bay, Ottawa, Renfrew and Pembroke. Unlike most community bands, there are no dues to join, but the band plays free concerts a few times a year for veterans, and has a series of concerts in April and May before breaking for summer. Many shows are at nursing homes and church halls in Renfrew county and Mississippi Mills. The Valley Concert Band also has recorded five albums under the baton of its current director of music. It has a library of some 900 musical scores worth some $90,000 collected since forming in 1987. Estabrooks often mixes contemporary and classic music, challenging the band but not reaching so far over their heads as to lose the quality during performances. It is the kind of knowledge the French horn player has gained over a lifetime in music. Before taking over the band in the mid-1990s when it was down to three members, Estabrooks was conductor of the RCMP Musical Ride Band playing for the rich and famous around the world. A large photo album shows him with boxing great Muhammad Ali, singer Crystal Gayle, folk legend Gordon Lightfoot, Bob McGrath who for many years was on Sesame Street, and television actor Susan Saint James among others. He’s backed up Anne Murray and the recently deceased Rita McNeil. He even played for Diana, Princess of Wales on the

A former RCMP band conductor, Keith Estabrooks, has played for and with some of the world’s most iconic singers. But his favourite musician also happens to be his son, Mike. The Valley Concert Band is welcoming new members at the moment. There are no fees. Practices are held in Arnprior. ill-fated Queen of the North before she died in a car accident and the boat sank off the B.C. coastline in 2006. He has travelled around the world playing music, from Venezuela to Italy, and northern Canada to Australia. He even toured with former prime minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau. “(Current Liberal leader) Justin Trudeau was just a child when we were in Mexico,” Estabrooks recalls, saying the RCMP band was great fun until it fell victim to budget cuts in 1993. However, he stayed on as an officer and was entrusted with guarding the U.S. ambassador for the duration of the two Gulf wars, along with standing on the front lines during the Oka crisis. A trained musician sauntering about with a machine gun? The transferable skills are few and far between. “Back then you had to train as an officer if you wanted in the band. So I just stayed on as an officer afterward,” Estabrooks said. Among his biggest fans is Estabrooks’ son, Mike. The two are union members

of the American Federation of Musicians, with the younger also a member of Souper Jazz, Dixieland band that has raised over $500,000 for soup kitchens in Ottawa. “My family raised me to think community service is a good thing, so that’s why I’m doing it,” Mike said. “With a community group like the Valley Concert Band you don’t have to be great to be a part of it. People go there to have a good time and learn from each other. And it’s a good thing to do for the community, playing for the vets and that.” Mike is a fourth generation musician in the family; photos of his grandfather and great grandfather in their bands hang in the home studio. He grew up assuming every parent passed on the gift of music to their kids, but has since realized how fortunate he is. As he stands over a sousaphone (a giant brass instrument related to the tuba), a piece he is restoring by hand, he has praise for Estabrooks as a musician and a father. “My dad knows what he’s doing.

For director Ron Gardner, finding an actress so close in age to the fictional Dorothy – with the stage presence and vocal ability to bring her to life – was an unexpected discovery. “Mallory really captures Dorothy’s

youthful innocence and spirit, but she also has the depth and maturity to carry off her full range of emotions – from comic to heartwarming,” he says. It’s finding the heart of the character that attracts Mallory to musical theatre. “You can lose yourself and find yourself at the same time,” she says. “You get to live the lives of so many different people. “I enjoy playing up Dorothy’s playful and serious sides, and it’s really fun to show her growth from selfish, immature kid to responsible young lady.” Mallory, who also appeared as Pepper in the 2011 Two Rivers production of Annie, is thrilled to be on stage with the seasoned actors in the large ensemble cast of Wizard. She has practical advice for anyone considering getting into musical theatre. “Just go for it. Get into school plays,

community plays, anything. It’s really fun no matter what your role, because you meet people who share your interest and get to do what you love at the same time.” So what’s next for such a talented young actress? “I would love to play Elphaba in Wicked. She’s misunderstood and has such a tragic, yet romantic story.” The Wizard of Oz runs June 6, 7 and 8 and will be performed at the Arnprior District High School. Mallory is sharing the role of Dorothy with Kanata actress Colleen Campbell, and will be performing opening night on Thursday, June 6 and in the matinée on Saturday, June 8. Get assigned seats for The Wizard of Oz online at www.tworiversmusicals.ca. Or you can purchase general admission tickets at the Arnprior Book Shop at 152 John St., Arnprior.

IS YOUR FAMILY PREPARED?

Emergency Preparedness Week

May 5-11, 2013 GetPrepared.ca Emergency Preparedness Week is a Canada-wide initiative to increase awareness about individual and family preparedness for an emergency. Emergencies can strike at any time and during an emergency, response agencies focus their efforts first where the need is greatest. That is why individual emergency preparedness is so important. While most people recognize the importance of being prepared, surveys have shown that less than half take the steps needed to be prepared. The goal of Emergency Preparedness Week is to bridge this gap between knowing and doing and to communicate to individuals and families how being prepared can reduce the risks and consequences of an emergency.

This year the focus of Ontario’s campaign is ensuring seniors and older adults are getting the message on being prepared. Many seniors have the ability and experience to help themselves and others during an emergency. However, ageing brings physical challenges and sometimes social isolation that can make seniors more vulnerable during emergencies. New Emergency Preparedness resources for seniors are available to help them learn why and how to be prepared. These materials are designed with seniors in mind, with their circumstances and needs taken into consideration. On a local level each year we are seeing more cases of aggressive weather in our region. This alone should raise the question for each and every one us “am

Emergency Kit Checklist

I prepared for an emergency”. Public Safety Canada advises to be prepared to take care of yourself and your family for a minimum of 72 hours in the event a disaster was to occur in our community. It is important to “Know the risks”, “Make a plan” and “Prepare a Kit”, by taking a few simple steps today, you can become better prepared to face a range of emergencies, anywhere-anytime.
