Taxes to rise in township Borrowed services from neighbours blamed for bulk of M-B tax increase Derek Dunn derek.dunn@metroland.com

EMC news – The message from McNab-Braeside council is that a property tax hike above the typical amount is needed to pay for library and recreation services from neighbouring towns. In a budget approved May 14, the township tax rate will increase by 4.5 per cent, or $17.87 per $100,000 assessment. Mayor Mary Campbell was quick to point out that includes a 1.75 per cent increase to allow township residents continued access Arnprior and Renfrew’s library and recreation facilities.

Quake shakes up Valley Sherry Haaima Sherry.haaima@metroland.com

EMC news - The long weekend got off to a shaky start for residents in the Ottawa Valley and beyond. An earthquake and subsequent aftershock Friday shook buildings and had people on the streets and online abuzz. The May 17 quake hit at 9:43 a.m. and registered a magnitude 5.2, centring 18 kilometres north east of Shawville, QC. The quake was felt in the Ottawa-Gatineau area and out

to Montreal, Toronto and Waterloo and was followed by a magnitude 4.1 aftershock at 9:53 a.m. Reports of damage were minor and included pictures falling from walls and glasses breaking in cupboards. Originally, it was reported a 4.8 magnitude quake occurred that was centred near Braeside. Updates raised that to 5.1 and then 5.2 and shifted the epicentre as Natural Resources Canada fine-tuned its data. See TREMORS, Page 6

the Ontario Municipal Partnership Fund; no new money from the provincial or federal governments for roads, recreation and more; and just a 1.08 per cent growth rate, fourth lowest in the county; • Expenses also increased – a 2 per cent cost-of-living bump to staff wages and salaries; and a bump in costs for fuel and utilities. Police costs are also expected to rise because of a 8.5 pay boost OPP officers will receive next year. The 2013 capital budget is $1,201,105. Items costing over $50,000 include: Red Pine Bay boat launch; purchase of tandem plow truck; Duncan Drive – engineering; Campbell Drive culvert replacement; and Kippen and Creek Side roads reconstruction of 2.3 kilometres. Township taxes for a home assessed at $100,000 will be $415.08. Many municipalities in the region have brought in tax hikes well below that of the township’s. But McNabBraeside remains among the lowest taxed municipalities in the area. The decrease in the county and school portions of the property-tax bill will also help cushion the municipal increase.

In past years, the township kept hikes to about 3 per cent. But last year negotiations over service agreements turned contentious between Arnprior and McNab-Braeside. The former insisted on a new formula; the latter has blamed it for the tax increase. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve even scaled back to 2.75 per cent if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t include library and rec,â&#x20AC;? said Campbell who, along with treasurer Connie Graham, carefully detailed the average cost to be born by all township ratepayers to fund those who borrow books, play minor hockey or take advantage of other town services. They pointed out that an average single family home in the township is assessed at $221,750, of which 6.6 per cent or $60.66 of the township portion of the tax bill pays for those services. All councillors at the May 14 meeting were asked to comment when the tax-hike announcement was made. Campbell alone did so. The budget passed with unanimous assent. The 2013 operating budget is $4,538,220. Other factors that played a role in the jump include: â&#x20AC;˘ Loss of $44,600 in revenue from

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; An unexpected bombshell landed on McNab-Braeside councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s table at its May 14 meeting when it was revealed that most members of the economic development committee (EDC) have resigned. The committee was formed last year to help promote and guide development in the township. Although at least one councillor was willing to take the news in stride, saying the township will carry on without the group, another on council implied the group felt slighted by the temporary hiring of prominent developer Bruce Firestone to advise council on economic development. A letter from committee chair Mark Gaetz was circulated at the regular biweekly meeting. He pointed out that the EDC includes volunteers offering talent and experience toward bettering their community. The group was to provide a big-picture vision for township development and, he wrote, needs time and patience to complete its goal. Instead, Gaetz indicated that council has not been taking the EDC seriously and even alienated the group. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The EDC must be recognized as a serious guiding force for economic development in the township, and as such must be involved in any and all economic development initiatives ongoing or under consideration,â&#x20AC;? Gaetz wrote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The EDC cannot accomplish its goal if it is considered to be a mere

She worries it has become a perception that will inhibit afterthought or provincial requirement.â&#x20AC;? He added that EDC needs other committees. The EDC will remain in limbo until Firestoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s June 30 funding, and that is must be supported by council and â&#x20AC;&#x153;in particularâ&#x20AC;? report estimated to be complete about June 30. standing committee members. The latter points the finger at EDC chair Coun. Christine Blimkie and Mayor Mary Campbell.

Teen takes on quarry proposal Sherry Haaima Sherry.haaima@metroland.com

EMC news - McNab-Braeside teenager Traleena Rouleau is serious about her opposition to the Miller Group’s proposal to expand its Braeside quarry and add an asphalt plant at the location. It’s an issue she’s very familiar with. The 16-year-old lives close to the quarry on a Braeloch Road on a farm with her family. “This is me six years ago,” said Rouleau, holding up a SHERRY HAAIMA/METROLAND newspaper article during her Traleena Rouleau has had plenty of student support for her campaign.

Her plea at the meeting was impassioned, but she didn’t stop there. Rouleau has launched a campaign that includes selling t-shirts, gathering signatures on a petition, and sharing her and others concerns with council as they decide whether or not to approve Miller’s proposal. The Arnprior District High School student and her

peers have had a table outside the cafeteria for the past few weeks to raise awareness and gather supports. The more than 300 names on the petition show that youth are concerned about the detrimental proposal and are willing and determined to stand up for their rights, says Rouleau. “There’s been a lot of support from students,” said Rouleau, who has also made presentations to several classes. She urges youth to get involved before it’s too late. “Council needs to hear your voice. Already, they have heard from FACT-MB (Friends Addressing Concerns in the Township of McNabBraeside), residents, qualified meteorologists and hydrologists. Your voice is the most powerful. Because we are young, we are the most susceptible to this asphalt plant. “This land will be ours one day and the decisions Council makes regarding this proposal will determine the quality of life we enjoy at a later date.” Rouleau was hoping to officially present her petition to council Tuesday, but was not accepted as a delegation. A decision on the quarry is not expected until at least next month.

Just under 10 minutes after the first quake, a 4.2-magnitude aftershock was also recorded. Jackie Laughlin, branch manager at RBC Financial Group in Arnprior, was outside the John Street bank when the earthquake hit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The ground was shaking and I heard a big bang,â&#x20AC;? said Laughlin. At Arnprior District High School, some students froze and others quickly left the building. However, there was no overall evacuation and classes soon went back to normal. Both the Renfrew County public and Catholic District school boards reported no injuries and no damage to school property. The Catholic board sent out a reminder to its schools about 15 minutes after the quake about its emergency procedures that had been revamped a couple of years ago after a quake in the area in 2010. The Arnprior Chronicle-Guideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Facebook page quickly filled up with personal reports. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We felt it at Essencia Yoga in our morning restorative yoga class. Just as we were getting into our first spinal twist, shoulder and heart opening pose. It seemed to go on for a longer time. We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hear any plates fall off the wall downstairs in Bonnie Janeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Scone Shop. We felt an aftershock too. It is different from trucks going by on John Street.â&#x20AC;? - Katherine MillerGatenby. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fitzroy Harbour shook ... a lot! My cats ran downstairs and I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen them since!â&#x20AC;? Claire Smeltzer-Tessier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m on Elgin ... so Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m used to that sound with big trucks going down the street ... but knew it was an earthquake when it kept going on and on â&#x20AC;Ś scary!â&#x20AC;? - Stephanie Shier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In Pakenham here ... Felt it. Dresser mirror and china hutch were shaking. Nephew from Renfrew called and said he felt it there too.â&#x20AC;? Kim Dodd-Turton. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was a dandy earthquake! Knocked the stuff off my desk!â&#x20AC;? - Colleen Campbell.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The fire department did not receive any emergency calls,â&#x20AC;? said Arnprior fire chief John Okum. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Myself and the fire prevention officers immediately dispatched ourselves to the community and did a quick assessment.â&#x20AC;? Emergency officials assessed critical infrastructure, visiting health care facilities including the hospital and retirement homes, as well as large buildings such as multiple storey apartment complexes and some of the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s industries. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone reported seeing and feeling the earthquake, but there were no reported immediate concerns,â&#x20AC;? said Okum. He said he was on the phone with Arnprior Mayor David Reid within about five minutes of the earthquake with the reassurance heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d keep the mayor apprised of the results of the departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assessment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We quickly had a discussion with the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s senior management staff,â&#x20AC;? said Okum. Via email and cell phones, staff members were directed to assess essential infrastructure including the water filtration plant, pollution control centre and water tower. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was no damage reported and all operations were functioning,â&#x20AC;? he said. The chief said he also contacted the dispatch centre to advise the Arnprior fire department was on standby for mutual aid, but there was none required. Firefighters handed out emergency preparedness pamphlets as they assessed the town for any damage. Okum said he advises the public to visit the Government of Canada website for emergency preparedness tips, including steps on what to do before, during and after an earthquake. About 5,000 earthquakes are recorded in Canada each year, most of them small ones. The last significant one in the region registering 5.0 was felt on the afternoon of June 23, 2010.

EDITORIAL

No time to stop studying the weather Last Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s earthquake was a timely reminder about the power of nature. Now, we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do much about earthquakes other than be prepared as possible to deal with them and their aftermath. We need to know what to do to maximize our chances to keep safe during a quake and survive afterwards. Luckily, our little shaker paled in comparison to the tornado that devastated Moore, a suburb of Oklahoma City Monday. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll always have earthquakes and tornadoes, but the sheer size of the Oklahoma tornado was frightening. It was estimated to be three kilometres wide with winds up to almost 500 km-h. tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another sign that our weather is becoming more extreme, especially in North America. While mankind canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be faulted for earthquakes, it is obvious that man-made charges have a role to play in our shifting weather patterns. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been through this before, with

the changing of the Prairies in the U.S. into farmland causing the destructive sand storms of the dirty 30s. Now, tornadoes, hurricanes and wind bursts are becoming more frequent and violent. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just in the U.S. Just ask the folks in the Norway Lake and White Lake areas who lost trees and cottages last summer. If the swath of destruction carved out by the wind storm had been a few kilometres to the north and gone through downtown Arnprior and Renfrew, it certainly would have received more attention. Despite their increasing frequency, we know relatively little about tornadoes and these worsening storms It proves that this is no time to be cutting and muzzling scientists. We need to know if we are helping to create these monsters before itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too late to do anything about them.

LETTER

Land claim â&#x20AC;&#x201C; journey of reconciliation To the Editor: The Algonquins of Ontario (AOO) have reached a historic point on our journey of survival, rebuilding and self-sufficiency â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a journey of reconciliation â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and one that includes reaching out and building relationships with our neighbours within our Traditional Territory. This journey began nearly 250 years ago when the first Algonquin Petition was submitted to the Crown in 1772. The Algonquins of Ontario claim includes an area of nine million acres within the watersheds of the Kichisippi (Ottawa River) and the Mattawa River in Ontario. Unlike most other First Nations, the AOO have never had a land surrender treaty with the Crown. There are currently more than 1.2 million people living and working within this unceded territory that covers most of Eastern Ontario, including the Nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Capital. There are also 85 municipal jurisdictions fully or partially located within the Settlement Area, including 76 lower and single tier municipalities and nine upper tier counties. Algonquins have lived in presentday Ontario for thousands of years

before Europeans arrived. Today, the AOO are comprised of 10 Algonquin communities. These include the Algonquins of PikwĂ kanagĂ n First Nation and the Algonquin communities of Antoine, Kijicho Manito Madaouskarini (Bancroft), Bonnechere, Greater Golden Lake, Mattawa/North Bay, Ottawa, Shabot Obaadjiwan (Sharbot Lake), Snimikobi (Ardoch), and Whitney and Area. The 10 communities are represented by 16 Algonquin Negotiation Representatives (ANRs) who are elected by Algonquin Voters for three-year terms. The ANRs include the Chief and Council of the Algonquins of PikwĂ kanagĂ n First Nation and one representative from each of the nine other Algonquin communities. Based on a Protocol signed in 2004, these communities are working together to provide a unified approach to reach a settlement of the Algonquin land claim. On Dec. 13, 2012, the Preliminary Draft Agreement-in-Principle (AIP) was released. The Preliminary Draft AIP is a culmination of many years of negotiations between the AOO, Canada

and Ontario. Our negotiations, beginning in 1991, continue to build on the determined efforts of the Algonquin people to be heard. It has been a long journey and it is far from over. Elements of the Preliminary Draft AIP serve as key building blocks to: 1) reaffirm the honour and pride of the Algonquin people; 2) ensure the survival and prosperity of the Algonquin people and culture; 3) raise awareness and understanding about Algonquin history and culture; 4) stimulate cultural and economic development opportunities; and 5) achieve reconciliation of the relationships between the AOO and the Governments of Canada and Ontario. As we continue our journey, the Algonquins of Ontario are united in our commitment to achieving a just and equitable settlement of this claim. We look forward to working together as neighbours in the spirit of reconciliation.

Humane society’s cat adoption policies questioned John Carter John.carter@metroland.com

EMC news – Should an animal shelter adopt out a cat if the new owner is going to allow it to roam around outside? That’s the question at the heart of a debate over the cat adoption policies of the Arnprior Humane Society. A rural resident of the Hurd’s Lake area is questioning the policy after he was rejected when he tried to adopt a cat at the shelter recently. Alex Baillon suggests Humane Society staff are well-meaning, but their reluctance to let him adopt a cat is misguided. Their adoption policies should be reviewed, particularly as the shelter is overrun with cats to the point it is not accepting any more except for emergencies, he says.

Baillon said when he explained that he would be letting his new cat have the run not only of his spacious house but his rural property, the humane society staff decided to reject his application. He says that a society director politely explained to him that safety is of prime importance and staff were worried that the cat would be killed by a coyote or a fisher. While the Humane Society doesn’t publicly discuss individual cases, society president Brenda Ambrose said that the no-kill shelter does strive to ensure all adopted pets are going to safe homes. “We bend over backwards to get our animals adopted,” she said. “But it’s not as simple … as giving out pets to everyone who asks for one.” Most of the cats in the shelter are not used to fending for themselves and would not likely survive for long outdoors, she explained. A cat going to a rural home where it

will be frequently outside should be one used to that type of lifestyle, she added. Ambrose said the shelter has some general policies, but adoptions are handled on a case-by-case basis. “It’s a judgment call,” she said, adding that the board has to have faith in shelter staff to evaluate whether the pet and the prospective new home are a good fit “They are the experts … that’s their job. They are very, very careful to find the right homes,” she said, adding it wouldn’t make sense for the volunteer board to meddle directly in the process. Ambrose said staff are dedicated to finding the right matches for the shelter’s pets and are frustrated at how many are in their care at the moment. However, they want to ensure they are going to permanent, safe homes, she said, adding that it’s extremely discouraging if a pet is finally adopted only to be brought back after a couple of weeks. It can take a long time, she admitted, noting shelter staff were delighted a few weeks again when a cat named Sam was finally adopted after being in the shelter for three years. “We don’t try to hurt people (by rejecting them),” she said. “We’re just trying to do the best we can.” Baillon suggests that the shelter board and staff review their policies in an effort to deal with the overcrowding at the shelter. Following are his thoughts in a letter to the editor. To the Editor: This is the story of Daniel. Daniel was a nice little fellow, warm, friendly and outgoing. But he was unlucky at birth. Poor Daniel was homeless and so he ended up in the care of the Arnprior Humane Society. At the shelter, he was well treated. He received all his shots and such medical attention as he required. He lived in a large room with dozens and dozens of other cats. Physically he was all right, but Daniel had vague dreams running around in his head. Put it down to instinct or call it what you will, but Daniel had something missing from his life. One day, a man and a woman came in to look for a cat and, among all those cats, Daniel stood out. They were drawn to him by his friendly but non-aggressive manner and because he purred like a buzz-saw when they stroked him. They decided then and there that Daniel was the cat for them. They had lived with many cats before, all of whom lived into their mid-teens with one living 20 years, so they knew cats and they liked Daniel. The man and the woman said they would take him and described their circumstances to the folks at the shelter. They explained that they had the money to provide Daniel with the best food and medical care available. They said

Daniel would have the run of their 3,000-square-foot house. They explained that they live at the end of a dead-end road, that they have five acres of property, surrounded on three sides by the waters of a lake. Two acres are open, mostly lawn, while the other three are bush, leading to the end of the long driveway. They said Daniel could fulfill his cat dreams and instincts by hunting the moles that are plentiful in the lawn and chasing the chipmunks and squirrels up the trees. He would have the freedom to come and go as he pleased, as long as he always came in at night. When he was tired or cold or wet, he could come in and warm himself by the fire and curl up in a cozy lap if he chose. They remembered that their previous cat, when he got older, would sit out on the patio in the evenings and watch the sun go down across the lake. Their place, they explained, was cat paradise. To their surprise, they were not allowed to take Daniel home. They had to wait 48 hours, they were told and then they would be notified of the decision. Dejected and mystified, they returned home to await the verdict. When there was still no word after 48 hours, they called the shelter and were told that theirs was deemed to be an unsuitable home. Baffled, hurt, and bewildered the man and the woman insisted on speaking to one of the directors of the society to get an explanation. The director was calm, polite, and friendly and she explained that the society believes that safety is more important than fulfillment, happiness, adventure, or accomplishment. She said that they were quite willing to deny all these things to Daniel in case, one day he were to be attacked by a coyote or a fisher. So Daniel was to continue living in a room full of cats in the hope that someday another person would come along and promise to keep him locked up in a small apartment. The man and the woman got another cat from another source. The Arnprior Humane Society has about 180 cats. They will not give them to folks who will let them out and often they will not separate siblings. They beg for donations, yet they spend money keeping far more cats than they need to because of their well-meaning but misguided rules. The man and the woman have since been told by many people that they are just naive. “When they ask you if you will let the cat out, just lie. That is what everyone does,” they were told. So one is left to the conclusion that, while safety is more important than happiness for a cat, for the people blame-avoidance is more important than finding a good home for an orphaned cat. Good night Daniel. Too bad you missed the chance of a lifetime, through no fault of your own. Alex Baillon Greater Madawaska

Forums, columns to spread awareness about Algonquin land claim John Carter john.carter@metroland.com

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; After concerns were expressed about some of the aspects of the land claim negotiations, the Algonquins of Ontario are taking steps to spread awareness about the preliminary draft agreement-in-principle. The Algonquins have held information meetings, written letters and columns, and now have scheduled three forums for municipal, provincial and federal elected officials in the areas affected. The Renfrew County meeting was set for Wednesday (after press deadline) in Eganville. There are also sessions scheduled for North Bay May 31 and Perth June 3. All run from 2 to 5 p.m. The preliminary draft agreement, released on Dec. 13, 2012, is the result of many years of negotiations between the Algonquins, Canada and Ontario. The negotiations that began in 1991 are the continuation of a process that stretch back to 1772. The forums aim to complement the many public information sessions held in March and April, as well as â&#x20AC;&#x153;provide an opportunity for the Algonquins of Ontario and elected officials from all levels of government to build and strengthen their relationships with one another.â&#x20AC;? Most of the earlier meetings hosted by the provincial government and the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters attracted large crowds and it became

obvious some speakers were confused about what was in the agreement. At the latest series of forums, Algonquin negotiation representatives and other members of the Algonquin Technical Advisory Group will be on hand to share information about the preliminary draft agreement-in-principle to answer questions and to hear comments. Following each presentation, there will be a question-and-answer period. Meanwhile, Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant has said she welcomes more land claim consultation sessions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The more dialogue that occurs between the Algonquins and residents who are affected by the ALC, the greater the understanding for each otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s position,â&#x20AC;? said Gallant, after a meeting on the issue in Pembroke a couple of weeks ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For example, it was explained that aboriginals already, through a variety of court decisions, have the right to hunt and fish as much as they want, whenever they want,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People have been given the impression by others that it is the ALC that is giving the Algonquins this right. In fact the agreement-in-principle outlines conservation measures to be implemented. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many were surprised to learn that the Algonquins would like to enforce their tag system.

enforcing the limits on their moose tag system.â&#x20AC;? Gallant rejected the contention by some stakeholder groups that the information sessions are for show only. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This will be a true consultation, not the kind that rural people are used to from Toronto where the concerns of rural residents are ignored.â&#x20AC;?

EMC lifestyle - The fascination we have for bears, wolves, and moose is legendary. That is because many people are under the false impression that only large animals are worth looking at. Large animals require very little effort to observe once they are found and you do not have to bend over, squat, or use a magnifying to see one well. But large animals are only encountered occasionally on outings into the wild. On myriad occasions I have asked someone what they had seen on their outing and heard back in response: â&#x20AC;&#x153;nothing!â&#x20AC;? But for every large animal that lives in a habitat, there are myriad small ones. By small I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean chipmunks or snakes; I am thinking of animals a mere centimetre or less long. Insects and even spiders often display behaviours as fascinating as those of the giants that tower above them. It just takes a bit more effort to find and observe small animals. But when one learns how to look, a fascinating world opens up on every outing. A case in point took place only a couple of weeks ago. I was walking along a sandy road in Algonquin Park when I noticed a number of insects flying low to the ground, repeatedly circling and crossing paths in dizzying motion. Curious, I bent down for a closer view and soon discerned them to be small fuzzy bees known as Plasterer Bees. I noticed that whenever one of the bees landed on the ground, almost immediately another would land on top of it. Often the coupled insects would roll

MICHAEL RUNTZ Natureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Way around for a few seconds before separating. Inevitably other bees would join in, displacing those that landed before them. Occasionally multiple bees landed atop each other creating a short-lived pyramid. Plasterer Bees are not colonial insects like Honey Bees and nest individually. Their name refers to their cellophane-like secretion used to waterproof brood cells in their tubular subterranean nests. I lay on my stomach and crawled to within a half meter of the bees. With camera resting on the ground, through the macro lens I could see that the first bees to land were slightly different than the ones they attracted. They were females and it seemed that landing signalled they were ready for mating. Some males were rejected, the female raising her wings as if to signify repulsion. Sometimes males fought to mate with the female. By letting males compete, females ensure that good genes get donated to their young. That is important because after mating females do all the work. They dig a nest in the ground, build cells in it, and use their hairy bodies to carry

pollen to the nest where it is liquefied and placed in the cells where one egg hangs suspended. Different species of Plasterer Bees are active at different times of year. Look for the hairy bees not only on the ground but also on pollen-rich flowers such as the later-blooming Goldenrods. But if you want to see the real action, be prepared to lie on your tummy! The Nature Number is 613-387-2503; email is mruntz@start.ca.

The male bees seldom have a female to themselves for very long.

FULLY ACCESSIBLE HOME

L’Arche Arnprior is on its way to realizing one of its dreams. “Belonging” and “home” are central to life at L’Arche. One dream at L’Arche Arnprior that urgently needed to be realized was the building of a fully accessible home. One of its three homes no longer met needs: it was a two-storey, 100-plusyear-old home that would have required extensive renovations - elevator, sprinkler system, new stairway to second floor, fully accessible washroom - in order to comply with the current building code standards for a Care Occupancy Group Home. It did not make economical sense to renovate the existing home. It made more sense to sell it and build a new, fully, accessible home. This endeavor, however, involves a substantial financial commitment. Building it has cost more than twice the market value of the home L’Arche is vacating,

which it is actively trying to sell. The cost of buying property, landscaping and building this fully accessible home has steadily climbed over the course of the project, and is now estimated to be somewhere in the vicinity of $900,000. This has entailed the need to assume a significant mortgage, resulting in a long-term financial hardship for the L’Arche community. The digging of the foundation started in late October, and it was ready for occupancy in early May. Building this new accessible home in the community will provide a lasting legacy for present and future members of L’Arche Arnprior to enjoy in the years to come. Perhaps you are not familiar with L’Arche Arnprior? It has been providing support to individuals with developmental disabilities in the region since June 30, 1975. This new accessible home will provide home for six of its core members - those individuals with developmental disabilities - and for four assistants - those members of community who live with and support the core members. The first L’Arche home was founded in a small town in France by Jean Vanier in 1964. There are now 137 L’Arche communities in 40 countries of the world - 29 of them right here in Canada. The identity statement of L’Arche is: • We are people, with and without learning disabilities, sharing life in communities belonging to an International Federation. • Mutual relationships and trust in God are at the heart of our journey together. • We celebrate the unique value of every person and recognize our need of one another. This year the proceeds from the annual L’Arche fundraising run/walk will go toward the purchase of a tracking chairlift system for this new accessible home. “Please consider what your contribution might be to the L’Arche Arnprior Fun Run/ Walk: you might sponsor a walker, volunteer your time, donate a door prize, come out to cheer the walkers on, or participate in our run/ walk yourself.”

McNab Days’ Riverdrive Festival to be fun-filled day by the river EMC events – If you haven’t any plans yet for Saturday, June 29, why not take in the annual Riverdrive Festival. One of McNab Days’ signature events, the festival promises loads of fun activities for young and old alike — all in a beautiful setting beside the Ottawa River, in Red Pine Bay, Braeside. The Riverdrive Festival is held each year to honour and celebrate the Ottawa River its historic contribution to the Township of McNab-Braeside’s past development, the enjoyment it gives to residents and visitors today as a recreational waterway, and its future economic potential. The festival’s organizing committee has planned a great day of outdoor activities - all designed to kick-start your Canada Day weekend celebrations. First up on Saturday morning is a Shore Breakfast (bacon on a bun, baked beans, home fries and beverages) from 9 to 11 a.m. The second annual 5-km Tartan Run (or walk), which starts at 9:30 a.m., will have participants race along the Ottawa River from Red Pine Bay where the log drivers burled past the historic Gillies

mill site, once one of the busiest sawmill operations in Canada. As you breathe the clear, invigorating country air, perhaps you will be able to hear the spectral din of the saws or the ghostly songs of the men who drove the logs. The first 40 participants to sign up will get an original vintage Tartan Run Jimmy Hat, and all runners will be served a Tartan Run Shore Breakfast with beverage. Bobby Smith, a renowned local piper, will pipe participants to the starting line, and welcome back all walkers and runners at the finish. So dust off your favourite kilt for this fun event. You can sign up starting June 1 at the Nick Smith Centre in Arnprior or the Township of McNabBraeside office on Russett Drive. Entry fee is $20 per

runner. At 11 a.m., Avalon Ranch owners Todd and Mary Spurrell will be putting on a Dock Diving demonstration featuring some of their star canine students. These talented dogs will be demonstrating two aspects of the exciting sport of dock diving: big air and extreme vertical. Big Air is the original and still most popular DockDogs competition. Each dog and its ‘handler’ compete head-to-head against other dog–human teams to see who can jump the farthest distance. Extreme Vertical has been officially launched as the second form of DockDogs competition (it was initially developed as a training technique for Big Air). Just as Big Air is equivalent of a ‘long jump’ for dogs, Extreme Vertical is the equivalent of a ‘high jump’ for dogs. For a sneak preview, check out the videos at www.avalonranch.ca/#!dock-diving. Bill Connelly and the Pine Bark Bunch will entertain over the lunch hour, with a musical history of a loggers’ life. This musical tribute will be accompanied by a number of interesting forestry industry

displays and old-time storytelling. The organizing committee is hoping the displays will stimulate a gathering of generations who have family and personal history in the forest products

industry, and of individuals who care to reminisce with coworkers, families and friends, recall incidents of common interest, or learn more about our history and job-creating potential in the utilization of

forest resources. At 1:30 p.m., the Stone Fence Theatre Company will perform Bonnechere River: Future Tense. See RIVERDRIVE, Page 17

EMC news - Horton is tussling with the question of whether it should allow the use of fireworks all year round. An proposed update of the town’s noise bylaw proposes year-round firework use instead of having it limited to special holiday weekends. However, some residents have spoke up against the change. River Road resident Terry Johnston says the recommendations didn’t suit many local residents, as he pointed in delivering a petition to Horton council May 7 with 68 signatures. The petition, in part, says the ramifications of noise emanating from fireworks “goes far beyond the viewing area of the display. This noise … is disturbing to residents in the area who may have young children, pets or have already retired for the night.” The petition also alludes to concerns about safety, and the potential impact by

people who may have consumed alcohol before handling the fireworks. Johnston read council a prepared statement in which he said the noise impact of fireworks can be significant, with noise reaching as far as a mile away. “This is much greater effect than running a lawn mower or even a chainsaw, (whose noise) seldom goes beyond a neighbour or two. In the proposed changes, these motorized tools are required to shut off after 8 p.m. while residents would be allowed to detonate between 9 and 11 p.m. any day of the week.” For Canada Day or Victoria Day weekends, he said this is fine, especially because residents expect fireworks these times of the year. But year-round is another matter, he added. Johnston also addressed the issue of checks and balances, saying more are needed if permits are to be issued online. What is preventing some teenager from using the parents’ name to get a permit before holding a fireworks party while the parents are away, he asked.

Mike & Donna Defalco Sales Rep/Broker A.S.A 613-623-2602 Bruce Skitt, Sales Rep 613-769-3164

He also wondered about liability, and who’s responsible if the fireworks permit holder is not negligent, within the definition of the permit’s requirements, but the neighbour’s house still burns down. It’s good to get more feedback, said Coun. Margaret Whyte. “We have people on both sides of the fence, but we have to do our due diligence.” “We’re in no rush to pass this bylaw,” said Coun. Bob Kingsbury. “We want to make sure we get everything right.” The current permit states fireworks can only be detonated between 9 and 11 p.m., and that debris from the fireworks must not fall on adjoining property. The permit also states wind conditions must be calm, and that if it’s windy this permit is declared null and void. The Town of Arnprior’s bylaw governing fireworks says they can only be detonated on Victoria Day and Canada Day with stipulations in the case of rain. The department does not restrict the sale of family fireworks.

EMC news – The Arnprior liquor store opened as normal last Friday, thanks to a lastminute deal between the Liquor Control Board of Ontario and its employees. LCBO customers gave a sigh of relief when the corporation announced that a tentative agreement has been reached with its 6,700 unionized employees, averting the possibility of a strike at LCBO stores and warehouses. Terms of the new collective bargaining agreement were not disclosed pending ratification by members of the Liquor Board Employees Division of the Ontario Public Service Employees

Union (OPSEU). The agreement must also be approved by members of the LCBO board and provincial government through an Order-in-Council. “LCBO thanks the public for its patience during negotiations,” said LCBO president Bob Peter. “We believe this agreement is fair to employees, is in the best interest of taxpayers and will enable LCBO to continue to provide responsible, quality service to customers and licensees across the province.” Meanwhile, the union representing the

Denise Davis, chair of the union’s bargaining team, said she believes the tentative deal will meet the expectations of members. “Our members were demanding in what they expected from a new contract. I believe we have met many of those expectations and we are recommending that our members endorse this tentative settlement.” During the negotiations, the union said one of its main concerns was the low wages and poor benefits paid to LCBO’s many part-time employees.

A book written primarily for children ages 4-9, entitled Have You Filled A Bucket Today? introduces the concept that everyone carries an invisible bucket that holds our good thoughts and feelings.

Children quickly understand that they can fill buckets when they do and say things that are kind, considerate, caring, and respectful. They also learn that when they are mean, inconsiderate, or disrespectful, they dip into buckets and remove those good feelings. Even the youngest child understands that actions and words can ei-

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;your-computerhas-a-virusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; scam artists are back at it. Leanne McDonald of Arnprior reports she received a call last week from someone who called himself a certified Microsoft technical support expert. He claimed her computer had a virus and she needed to turn it on and let him fix it over the phone. Thanks to her own wariness and armed with knowledge provided by her computer literate 20-year-old son, McDonald didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fall for the scam. She said she knows that Microsoft would never diagnose or fix a virus problem over the phone. However, there have been people who have lost money because of the scam, she noted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d hate for a senior citizen to be taken in by these guys.â&#x20AC;? She said the caller was persistent. He called at least three times before catching her at home. The number came up â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;unknownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on her call display. The OPP have warned citizens that the calls, which have been happening for at least the past year, are a scam. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give out any personal or computer information over the phone and alert the regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s anti-fraud unit tollfree at 1-888-495-8501, say police.

Regardless of what type of vessel you are in when the time comes and you really need that PFD, remember that â&#x20AC;&#x153;it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wear it.â&#x20AC;? Over and above the risk of hypothermia, cold water immersion poses another immediate threat to boaters who fall overboard or whose vessels capsize. Seven of last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boating deaths involved alcohol consumption. The motto on the road is â&#x20AC;&#x153;if you drink, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t drive.â&#x20AC;? It is the same on the water and so are the laws, right down to immediately having your driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s licence suspended if you are in the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Warn Rangeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Factoring in weather is also key to a safe boating season. Make an informed decision and use sound judgement when deciding the best time to head out on the water. Familiarize yourself with the boat you are operating and ensure that it is properly prepared for the boating season. Remember that the law requires anyone operating a motorized water vessel to have a pleasure craft operating card.

Computer virus scam returns

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; When it comes to public safety, the OPP expects no less of boaters and paddlers navigating Ontario waterways than they do of motorists travelling on Ontario roads. With Safe Boating Awareness Week this week (May 18-24), the OPP reminds all boaters and paddlers that being well-informed and focused on safe boating practices is a sure-fire way to enjoy a tragedy-free boating season. Responsible for policing more than 94,000 square kilometres of Ontario waterways, the OPP is highly familiar with the causes of boating fatalities every year. According to the OPP, the hard facts about how preventable they are lie in the statistics. Last year (2012), the OPP investigated 20 fatal boating incidents in which 22 persons lost their lives. Twelve of these people were boat operators and 10 were passengers. Eighteen of the 22 victims were not wearing Personal Floatation Devices (PFDs) and in many of those incidents, the vessel either capsized or the victim fell overboard. Eight of the 20 fatal incidents involved either a canoe, kayak or sailboat.

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Prescription Drug Drop-Off Day has been called a success by organizers across the country. On May 11, police and medical officials worked together to help residents in communities dispose of unused and unwanted medications. At 53 OPP locations across Ontario, including the Renfrew office for this area, 308 kilograms of prescription medications from just over 700 citizens was dropped off. Most of the drugs collected included opiates, amphetamines and barbiturates, which are all very highly dangerous drugs, say police. The initiative, sponsored by the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police, will help police keep drugs out of the hands of those who should not have them. Residents are urged to drop off any unused or expired prescription medications at their local pharmacies at any time where they can be disposed of in a safe and environmentally safe manner. To keep prescription medications from water sources, medications should never be flushed down toilets. R0032024851

EMC news - The Renfrew OPP detachment says the report of a man trying to abduct a 10-year-old Renfrew student last week was false. Alarm bells were sounded May 13 after the OPP received a detailed complaint about an attempted abduction of a 10-year-old student walking near Our Lady of Fatima Catholic School. The OPP put out a request for the publicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assistance to identify a man said to be in his 20s with piercings and a tattoo. The report caused a sensation on social media, including some calls for vigilante action. But on May 15 the OPP issued a news release saying its investigation shows the attempted abduction never occurred. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The incident did not occur. There is no guy (who attempted a kidnapping),â&#x20AC;? said Const. Janice Sawbridge, the community services officer for the Renfrew OPP. She said unsubstantiated reports do happen from time to time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rare, but they occasionally happen, whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s someone reporting they were assaulted (and werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t) or something was stolen (and wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t),â&#x20AC;? said Sawbridge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important the public knows we take reports seriously, and there is the potential for charges in some of these incidents.â&#x20AC;? In this case, no charges will be laid, said Sawbridge. The initial report indicated a man, near Wendyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Restaurant at the north end of town, attempted to lure a child with candy and to grab her. The report also said she kicked the alleged perpetrator and ran away. Meanwhile, the OPP says it is always good for parents to review personal safety practices with their children. The OPPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website of www.opp.ca contains a number of useful resources to facilitate that discussion.

Legacy of mad cow disease continues to hurt cattle producers EMC news – The effects of the mad cow disease, which surfaced in Canada 10 years ago, still affect local producers, says Renfrew County National Farmers Union president Tony Straathof. “Sadly the BSE crisis of 10 years ago has wreaked havoc (lost income) for cattle producers in Renfrew County,” said Straathof, in a news release. He noted that Canadian cattle producers have lost $10.3 billion since the outbreak of mad cow in 2003. May 20 was the 10th anniversary of Canada’s first case of BSE (mad cow disease). Historically, Renfrew County has been noted as a successful cow calf and cattle production region. Travelling through the countryside

it is obvious that there are fewer cattle numbers today than 10 years ago, said Straathof. “It is estimated that our county may have lost anywhere between 20 and 25 per cent of our cattle numbers. To add to those recent struggles in the aftermath of BSE, cattle numbers continue to decrease in this area also because of last year’s severe drought.” Straathof said that looking over the last 10 years cattle production statistics are somewhat discouraging. While the average price received by farmers for cattle has increased 4 to 10 cents per pound (5.5 per cent), the price for diesel has increased 80%, gasoline 85%, corn 50% and beef supplement 64%, “which clearly reaffirms why cattle numbers in

Renfrew County (and Canada) continue to deplete.” Thie situation has forced most cattle producers to look to off-farm income to greatly supplement their farm income, he said. “As devastating as the BSE crisis was, consumer confidence in local (Canadian) beef has somewhat helped to mitigate some of the disastrous effects of the BSE fall-out,” said Straathof. “As cattle producers approached the 10th anniversary of the worst disaster to hit Canadian agriculture, there wasn’t that much to celebrate,” he added. “Returns for cattle producers are falling way behind cost of production, and cattle numbers in Renfrew County (across Canada) continue to dwindle.”

Jobs talk at Options EMC news – Renfrew-Nipissing- Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant used a visit to last week’s high school students Options 2013 to consult with employers and educators on the Canada Job Grant. Options 2013 was made possible by $33,000 of federal funding through the Eastern Ontario Development Program (EODP). More than 2,000 Renfrew County students, including a contingent from Arnprior District High School, attended a job fair, where skills competitions and employment opportunities were showcased. Gallant met with Karen Davies and Jamie Bramburger of Algonquin College during Options 2013 to discuss the new Canada Job Grant outlined in Economic Action Plan 2013. The initiative will create jobs by transforming the way Canadians receive skills training. “The discussions provided me with the views from job creators on this innovative new approach to skills training,” said Gallant. “The Canada Job Grant will take skills-training choices out of the hands of government and put them where they belong: in the hands of employers with unfilled jobs and Canadians who want to work.” The Canada Job Grant will allow Canadians, who have an offer for a new job or a better job, to qualify for up to $15,000 to learn new skills. The contributions for the Canada Job Grant will be a joint three-way funding program, with federal contributions being matched by the provinces and the potential employer.

New farming types attracting young families Patricia Leboeuf pleboeuf@metroland.com

EMC news - From the outside, the Torbolton Institute looks desolate and a bit ominous, but Hank Jones can see the potential. He plans to transform the old elementary school building into a Mecca for Community Supported or Shared Agriculture (CSA). A CSA is a worldwide initiative aiming at reinventing the family farm. These farms are local and small, typically less than 50 hectares, that sell their high quality produce to the community in shares. They also often encourage clients to get down and dirty by helping to cultivate. “In other words come to the farm and spend some time farming,” said Jones. It would reduce cost on both sides of the equation by saving on farm equipment and fossil fuel. The clients wouldn’t go into a field willy-nilly. They would be formed at the institute on the basics of farm work. “Instead of gawking, they come ready to work,” said Jones. “So they are in fact an asset to the farm and not a liability.” It all comes back to the idea that food security is an up-and-coming and serious problem. With the price of fossil fuel, climate change and civil unrest in many parts of the world, importing food could become very difficult. Self-reliance will become integral to feed ourselves, said Jones. The solution? To encourage young families to take up the CSA model.

PATRICIA LEBOEUF/METROLAND

Hank Jones hopes to have 1,000 Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farms by 2020. The Torbolton Institute will help foster these CSAs and teach interested people how to maintain one. Jones aims to have 1,000 CSA farms in the area by 2020. He started the project in 2010 and has recruited about 30 farms. He hopes to encourage young families to join up with his mission. They would learn to successfully farm and tailor their growth for farmers market and the like. The community model encourages CSA farmers to work together, sharing produce with one and another. This will allow customers receive a constant stock of product despite any difficulties the farmer may ex-

perience. There are several different types of CSAs, some strictly growing fruits and veggies while others expand into nuts, orchards, herbs, honey and even edible weeds. “Nothing gets wasted,” said Jones. The institute will also teach budding farmers how to preserve seeds to maximize their crops. “Seed saving is a really important idea,” he said. “That means that things like certain plants genetically modified whatever and sterile varieties or gynoecious varieties, those that produce fruit without pollination, and annual crops are tricky.” The institute will also serve as a makeshift community centre. Once it is up and running by next year or so, Jones plans to have several events on the grounds. Farmer’s Markets would be an obvious addition, but unique things like hot yoga studio, an art studio, outdoors movie theater and an aquaponic system to raise self-sustaining fish could make an appearance. “I would love to see a community garden here run by youngsters,” said Jones. “Who can do things, achieve things, be very proud of it and show people. I’d love to have people traipsing through this place from sun up to sundown every day of the week looking at various things.” “I would encourage when we really have something to work with here is to have downtown folk who seldom leave the concrete jungle be able to come,” he added. For more information on the Torbolton Institute or CSAs, contact Hank Jones at acorn@treenuts.ca.

Ford test drives earn $2,100 for Walter Zadow EMC lifestyle - Arnprior Mayor David Reid obviously thinks Ford has a better idea as he took a test drive in a 2013 Ford Escape SE May 11. No, he hasn’t turned his back on General Motors, but was taking part in a fundraiser for a playground at Walter Zadow Public School. McAllister Ford and the school held the second Drive 4 UR School test drives and fun fair at the Arnprior Mall. There were 105 drivers participating, which raised $2,100 towards the playground needed with all-day Kindergarten coming to the school in September. Organizers thank Reid and all those who braved the cold to support the cause. There is still time to go to McAllister Ford, as the free test drives continue until the end of May with the school getting $20 for every one registered. Also for anyone who buys a vehicle until May 31, McAllister Ford will bump the $20 to $200. As well, anyone who would like to contribute to the playground fund can do so at the school office at anytime.

Jumpstart Day to be celebrated Saturday EMC events â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The fifth annual Jumpstart Day will take place at Arnprior Canadian Tire this Saturday, May 25. The day-long fundraising event is the celebration of Jumpstartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s May Red Ball campaign, which, through the month of May, encourages customers to donate $2 in exchange for a red ball â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a national symbol for childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s play. Donations to Jumpstart help the one in three Canadian families that cannot afford to enrol their children in organized sports and recreation. All funds raised through the May Red Ball campaign and on Jumpstart Day stay within the local community to help local children. Over the past eight years, Jumpstart has helped more than 580,000 kids across Canada by removing the financial barriers that prevent chil-

dren from participating in sports. To date, 238 children in Arnprior have been able to participate in sports and recreation because of Jumpstart. On Jumpstart Day, many Canadian Tire stores across the country will celebrate and raise additional funds for Jumpstart with special events and activities for customers. At the Arnprior Canadian Tire, customers will be asked for a donation to participate in a barbecue, a waterless car wash and games. All money raised will be donated to Jumpstart, helping Canadian kids get involved in organized sport. Canadian Tire invites the Arnprior community to get involved and make a difference in the lives of local kids. The events will continue all day, with the majority of the action happening between about 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Aunt Lizzie’s gifts never served much use EMC lifestyle - Father’s sister Aunt Lizzie, very wealthy we thought, lived in Regina and once a year she came out to the homestead in Renfrew County, just to check up on her only brother, and as Mother said, to make sure the farm hadn’t slipped into the Bonnechere River. Aunt Lizzie didn’t think Mother was good farm material. She thought anyone who had lived most of her life in New York City certainly wouldn’t amount a hill of beans in the backwoods of Renfrew County!

Every time she came to visit, the house was in turmoil. Everything had to be scrubbed within an inch of its life, and my sister Audrey and I had to give up our bed and the little washstand we shared at the top of the stairs. Even the top had to be cleared off, so my collection of little stones I cherished, small little stones I picked up on the farm and which I loved dearly, had to be put in a little paper bag and tucked away for keeping in a safe place. Audrey’s hand mirror and comb, too, had to find a new home for Aunt Lizzie’s visit. Even though she was his sister, Father was always in a lather when Aunt Lizzie came for her yearly visit. She insisted on bringing him something which served no earthly purpose, and which she thought he shouldn’t live without. And often the hand-me-down box usually included a present for Father, which made little or no sense whatsoever. Like the kimono. Father had never laid eyes on a kimono before, but he insisted on wearing it when we had neighbours in for euchre one Saturday night. Even Mother couldn’t talk him out of putting it on, but when Uncle Alec after dealing out the cards, asked Father what in tarnation he had on over his shirt and trousers, Father decided the kimono just wasn’t for him. When Aunt Lizzie visited us in Renfrew County, she never failed to bring Father some outlandish gift, which she insisted was just what he needed. One summer it was a dress shirt with a high round celluloid collar, which Father had to wear to church the Sunday she was there.

Mary Cook’s Memories MARY COOK

It took both Mother and Aunt Lizzie to button it around his neck, and when he got home he said his head ached and his ears were ringing. He never wore the shirt again. I thought the small stiff straw hat with the narrow brim, and the narrow black ribbon looked much better than the big old tattered one Father wore around the farm. Aunt Lizzie bought it at Walker’s Store in Renfrew and she never let Father forget that she had paid a whole 75 cents for it! That didn’t make him like it any better, especially when he saw the identical hat on a woman in the Lutheran Church one Sunday. Well, one summer, Aunt Lizzie arrived, and as usual, the house was in a turmoil. She re-arranged the furniture without even an if-you-please to Mother, all of which was promptly moved back where it belonged the minute the train left Renfrew station. That year, Aunt Lizzie told Father that she wanted to go into Renfrew to do some shopping for him, as what she had in mind was too bulky to pack in her cow-hide suitcases. Father wasn’t too pleased, but Mother told him to get it over with ... there would be no living with his sister until she had her way. And off they went in the Model T on the Saturday. I couldn’t wait to see what Aunt Lizzie had in mind for Father. When they got home, Father was like a

thunder cloud, changed into his bib overalls and headed for the barn. Aunt Lizzie came in with a shoe box under her arm. She opened it on the kitchen table, and there was a pair of men’s shoes the like of which I had never seen before. They were black shiny patent leather, with white leather insets under the laces, and the toes were so pointed, Emerson said you could kick the eyes out of a snake at 50 paces! Aunt Lizzie insisted Father wear them to church the next day, which he did with great reluctance, but the minute he got home, they were exchanged for his black well-worn work boots. Aunt Lizzie said he should wear them all day to break them in. Father sat and looked at the shoes for the longest time, and I could tell he was thinking long and hard. He put the new shoes back on and headed for the barn to do the Sunday night chores. When he came in for supper, you wouldn’t recognize the new black and white leather shoes. They were covered with manure, grass and mud, and you couldn’t tell where the white insets started and the black toes began. Even Father’s socks were ready for the Monday washing! I knew without question, Father who was meticulous about both himself and the barns, had deliberately ruined the shoes. Aunt Lizzie flew into a fit, grabbed the shoes and went out to the rain barrel with a whisk and a rag. She agreed then they should only be worn to church on Sunday. Her train left before the week was out, and she wasn’t around to see if Father was in his new shoes at the Lutheran Church. Like the kimono, the shirt with the celluloid collar, and the straw hat, the shoes vanished, never to be seen again on the farm at Northcote.

The sale was held outside the Seniors at Home office on McGonigal Street this year. All monies raised go to support various programs the agency has to offer.

EMC lifestyle – Ontario is the first province to make automatic sprinklers mandatory in care homes for seniors and homes for people with disabilities. Mandatory sprinklers are part of amendments to the Fire Code and Building Code that will improve fire safety in these occupancies. Other improvements include: • self-closing doors; • enhanced fire inspections and staff training; • annual validation of fire safety plans by local fire services. All licensed retirement homes and most private care facilities will have up to five years to install sprinklers. Some facilities will have an 11-year phase-in period.

Speakers to cover Middle East conflict in Pakenham EMC news - The Israel-Palestine conflict has been in the news for decades, but how much of the issue do we really understand? Does anyone really understand the situation? In order to find some answers, or at least learn about the area’s issues, the Pakenham Pastoral Charge of the United Church is hosting two information evenings at St. Andrew’s in Pakenham and the public is welcome to attend.

Next Monday evening, May 27, at 7:30 p.m., Rabbi Dr. Reuven Bulka will present his viewpoint on Israel. Rabbi Bulka is a highly-respected spiritual leader in the Ottawa Jewish community and former co-president of the Canadian Jewish Congress. An accomplished author and sought-after speaker, he is also a regular contributor to the Ottawa Citizen’s ‘Ask the Religion Experts’ and a broadcaster who hosts a weekly program on CFRA.

The following Monday, June 3, also at 7:30 p.m., Susan Palmai will speak on her experiences as an Ecumenical Accompanier in Palestine. She has walked alongside those living in Palestine in their daily life, including crossing through checkpoints as they proceed through Israeli-controlled territory. Following the presentations there will be an opportunity to ask questions. Refreshments will be served after the talks.

EMC news - Henry Tuck of Goshen continues to spread the word that a worldwide movement, called Agenda 21, is using global warming and other environmental issues to place restrictions on property owners, especially in rural areas. Tuck brought to Horton Township’s planning committee meeting May 14 a globe wrapped in red barbed wire, explaining that “it represents the red tape these environmental freaks are putting around our planet.” Members falling into that category, he said, include members of the International Council for Local Environmental Issues (ICLEI), including the Federation of Canadian Municipalities, and the Sierra Club. Examples of the Agenda 21 movement, said Tuck, include Ontario’s Endangered Species Act and Renfrew County’s own strategic plan. While some suggest this is a conspiracy theory, Carleton-Mississippi MPP Jack MacLaren says that’s not the case after hearing a similar, but longer presentation before about a dozen Progressive Conservative MPPs at Queen’s Park on May 14. That hour-long presentation was by Toronto planner Jessica Annis. It’s not a conspiracy theory, but a philosophy that’s alive and well, insisted MacLaren, a past president of the Ontario Landowners Association before he was elected to Queen’s Park. “We’re not off our rockers. Not Jack MacLaren, not Jessica Annis, and not Henry Tuck,” said MacLaren. “We have to educate people about the fact that Agenda 21 exists because its object is to change the way we live and how we’re governed.” For example, said MacLaren, “I agree with species protection, but how you do that is my

main beef with the Endangered Species Act.” Tuck encouraged Renfrew-NipissingPembroke MPP John Yakabuski to attend the Queen’s Park session, but he had a conflicting meeting. Tuck told Horton’s planning committee that this is an apolitical issue that should “greatly concern every woman and child in our rural communities, no matter what their colours or leanings. This grave threat to our rural life, forestry jobs, almost any industry, ranching, farming, and the right to determine our own homegrown destiny, is very real, insidious and pervasive.” Tuck maintained the United Nations’ Agenda 21 (formerly called Local Agenda 21) is being implemented by the ICLEI, which he said has already been banned in a few American states. The Agenda 21 strategy, says Tuck, is sold as a local initiative, but is really a top-down strategy from national government agencies and environmental non-government agencies headquartered in Germany. Tuck called Agenda 21 a “totalitarian political ideology masquerading as an environmental movement.” Those interest groups lobbying to implement this sustainable development, said Tuck, are funded and controlled by a small number of multi-national corporations in partnership with government, including every level of Ontario government. Tuck got only halfway through his PowerPoint presentation, but all planning committee members received a complete printed copy. Tuck gave a similar presentation to McNabBraeside council April 9, at which time he said local politicians should become aware of planning policies, including the County of Renfrew’s strategic plan, which he says was developed with input from ICLEI. Not so, says Renfrew County chief admin-

Bee educated at farmers’ market At the opening of the Carp Farmers’ Market May 11, Beryl Hill of Berch Design and Display stops for a chat with fellow exhibitors Abigail and Russell Corbett of Russell’s Honey of Arnprior. The Corbetts have been beekeeping for more than 40 years. “We’re retired but we’ve been busy, busy with bees,” says Russell. He recently attended the annual beekeepers’ meeting in Cobden where concerns with dwindling bee populations continue to mount. At the Carp Farmers’ Market at the Carp Fairgrounds, people can see live bees in their honeycomb and learn about the insect’s important role in nature and the healthful benefits of raw honey. Meanwhile, the Arnprior Farmers’ Market is scheduled to open for the season this Saturday morning, May 25, back next to the Arnprior Curling Club.

New Fitzroy outdoors market to carry ‘quirky treasures’ Patricia Leboeuf pleboeuf@metroland.com

EMC news - Two West Carleton moms have gotten together to create a unique outdoors market east of Arnprior. The Ferry Road Market isn’t the typical run-of-themill farmers’ market. Fresh local produce will find itself mingling with an abundance of exclusive handmade products. “We’ll have things that you will find at a farmers’ market, but we’ll also have things that are quirky and fun like you’d find at a flea market,” said organizer Bridie McDonald. “We have a young girl who makes homemade, non-toxic lipstick and another girl will do hair feathers,” she added. Every Sunday morning until the Oct. 6, the field near the Pinto Valley Ranch at the corner of Ferry and Galetta roads will find itself covered in vendors and shoppers. It is an ideal location. It is family-friendly and the close proximity to the ranch will allow visitors the chance to see the animals. “We wanted to have a place that if we had to bring our children,” said McDonald. “It’s safe and it’s fun and it’s a nice green space.” Creating the outdoor mar-

ket fulfills a community and personal need. McDonald and her farming partner Nicole Cournoyer were trying to figure out how to sell their own product when the idea of holding their own market came up. It would allow them to have control over their sales while allowing for a bit of creativity. “We really wanted to have a venue for people that have different things or odd things, a place to sell them without having to go to the city,” said McDonald. “I also felt that since the Stittsville flea market, the big one, closed that there wasn’t enough free things for people to do,” she added. Since it is in its first year, trying to find vendors that are willing to commit was a little hard. “Some people may be apprehensive to pay their fee and come,” she said. “We do have quite a few vendors now coming on to its first week, but we do hope to keep growing during the summer.” She hopes that with time it will grow and buskers will set up shop to play music for attendees to enjoy. “I’ve been trying to track down local people who have interesting skills if they want to come and do a demo,” said

McDonald. “They are more than welcome. That’s why we didn’t call it a farmers market. We wanted it to be a little bit of something for everybody.” Many vendors are moms so McDonald understands the balance between business and family responsibility. In addition to organizing the market, she and Cournoyer produce cheese, bread, crackers, body lotions and scrubs. “Mostly we do all our stuff after our kids go to bed,” she said. “We kick into work mode at 7:30 at night and work for a couple hours. This week has been tricky. We’ve been up a lot later I’m not going to lie.” Without a large budget, the organizers had to resort to elbow grease to get the market in shape for its grand opening on May 19. Tables had to be fixed, logistics figured out, advertising put out and grass mowed. She is confident that the market will attract many people. “We just really want it to be something fun,” said McDonald. For more information or to become a vendor, please contact the organizers at ferryroadmarket@gmail.com.

County threat protocol will help make schools safer EMC news – Renfrew County school boards have adopted a plan that will help educators identify students who could be a threat to themselves or others. The four boards, together with several partners, have developed a Renfrew County risk assessment protocol that was formally adopted May 13 in Pembroke. The protocol supports collaborative planning among schools, community partners, families and individuals to reduce violence and to reflect safe, caring and restorative approaches. It fosters timely sharing of information about an individual who poses a risk for violence. The protocol is the process of deliberately trying to “connect the dots” to assess the level of risk regarding a person who has potential to commit serious violence before it happens. The protocol promotes supportive and preventive plans being put in place. It was developed with the guidance of Kevin Cameron, director of the Canadian Centre for Threat Assessment and Trauma Response. The plan is part of the Student Support Leadership Initiative (SSLI), developed by the Ministries of Education and Children and Youth Services. The initiative supports and is aligned with Ontario’s Safe Schools Strategy, and Ontario’s policy framework for child and youth mental health. The SSLI was developed in response to changes to the safe schools provisions of the Education Act and school boards formed partnerships with community agencies to provide non-academic supports that promote positive student behaviour. The strength of this partnership be-

Colin Slight, and Jeff Smith of the Upper Ottawa Valley OPP. tween school boards and community organizations lies in the multidisciplinary composition of the Community Threat Assessment Team (C-TAT). “The C-TAT members review and share information, examine details of threatening situations or evidence, collaborate and use the broad range of expertise of the members,” said Ivan Saari, chair of the SSLI. “Respecting an

individual’s rights to privacy and the safety of all are key components of this process.” Each of the partners committed to certifying employees, with Level 2 certification being conducted May 13 and 14 in Pembroke. The partners also agree to work together for the common goals of reducing violence, managing threats of violence, and individual and community safety.

Saari explains that “Someone who discloses they are going to harm another is not limited to doing so at a school, the community rink, dance studio or convenience store,” noted Saari. “The supports that are beneficial do not reside with any one school or agency but are the responsibility of all to assess the level of threat and devise an action plan to support the individual(s) and others who are being impacted or may be impacted by harmful behaviour.” In recognition that many instances may arise from detection during school programs, a letter will be sent home at the start of the school year with students in all four school boards explaining the process as a “fair notice” a threat assessment may occur and intervention/support plans will be shared with parents, staff and students as required. The SSLI is appreciative to the spectrum of partners who have engaged in the certification process, the steering committee and the protocol adoption. They include the four school boards, three OPP detachments, Phoenix Centre, Family and Children’s Services, Petawawa Military Family Resource Centre, Bernadette McCann House for Women, Mental Health Services Renfrew County-Pembroke General Hospital, Women’s Sexual Assault Centre, and Community Living Upper Ottawa Valley.

Odd number houses may water on odd calendar days and even numbered houses may water on even numbered days. Watering may occur between the hours of 5:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. each day and from only one connection.

FR. ROBERT RYAN AND PARISHIONERS WELCOME YOU!

EMC lifestyle – Ctenocephalides felis or cat flea! Although there are over 2,000 species of fleas, the most common is the cat flea, which is found on both cats and dogs. Fleas are responsible for a variety of problems from simple itching and infection to allergic skin reactions and tapeworm. The females always lay there eggs on your dog or cat. Once on your pet the adult fleas feed vigorously but digest only a small percentage of ingested blood. The remaining ingested blood is excreted back onto your pet in the form of black fecal matter commonly known as flea dirt (looks like black pepper). Feeding stimulates egg laying while on your pet and in just 30 days 10 fleas can multiply into 250,000 fleas. The small white eggs do not adhere to skin or hair but fall freely off your pet to contaminate bedding, flooring, carpeting, dog beds, even your vehicle if the pet has been transported in it during the infestation. The adult flea represents only a small percentage of the infestation present in your home. The vast majority of the flea population is actually either in the egg, larval or pupal stage, which cannot bee seen. Effective elimination of fleas requires control at all levels of the life cycle. If you have a flea infestation you must treat both your pets and your home. Flea infestation is a vicious cycle. Before you can effectively control and eradicate the fleas you must understand a little about their life cycle. In just 15 days the flea life cycle is completed. In 30 days 10 fleas can multiply into 250,000 fleas. If just

one pet in a multiple pet home has fleas then they could all have fleas. To get rid of the fleas for good, you have to kill both the adult flea and their offspring. The adult flea – is the biting, reproducing and most annoying stage. The adult flea is the most visible and feeds on the blood of your pet(s). The average female flea lays 25 eggs per day up to 2,000 eggs in her lifetime. Adult fleas, as I stated earlier, can cause health problems ranging from tapeworm, skin disorders, infections and allergies. Flea eggs - fall from your pet(s) into your home and the environment. Fleas lay all of their eggs on your pet(s). These eggs are barely visible to the human eye. The eggs do not stay on your pet(s) but fall off onto you bedding, flooring, carpeting, etc. Under optimal conditions (hot, humid weather), flea eggs can develop into the larval stage within 10 days. Flea Larvae – the worm-like larvae settle deep within carpet fibres, in and under furniture. Any effective treatment must control flea larvae since they are the largest percentage of any infestation. The larvae have long spines on each segment which allows them to cling to carpet fibre and furniture making it difficult to simply vacuum them up. Flea Pupae – shielded by a cocoon, no treatment can control the flea pupae. Now that we have looked at some flea facts and the life cycle of the flea, in my next column I will discuss both prevention and eradication of the flea.

Cape Breton entertainer to play concert in Arnprior EMC entertainment - Wellknown Cape Breton singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist J.P. Cormier will perform in Arnprior June 14. Cormier will play at the John St. Pub at 9 p.m. as part of a tour that celebrates the release of his latest album ‘Somewhere in the back of my heart’. Cormier has performed extensively throughout Canada, Great Britain, Europe, and the U.S. and has appeared over 20 times at the Grand Old Opry. Cormier has released 13 solo albums since 1995 and has won more than 30 awards in 20 years of fiddle, guitar, banjo, and song-writing competitions. His songs have been number one hits on American and European radio and he’s won 12 East Coast Music Awards, five Music Nova Scotia Awards, and a Canadian Folk Music Award. In 2005 the Bravo network aired J.P. Cormier - The Man and his Music, a one-hour documentary examining his life and music. Stompin’ Tom Connors was the first person to give a regular pay check to Cormier. After receiving $500 in cash from Connors to buy clothes before a tour, J.P. started to cry as he told Tom’s wife Lana, “this is the most money I’ve ever seen in my life.” He was 19 at the time and it is said Connors was like a

Ambush to play for Bernadette McCann House EMC events – Mark McDonell says he can’t count the number of fundraisers Ambush has played in the last two decades. “I’m not sure, but it’s probably well into the hundreds,” he says. The country rock group has been booked to perform at the Bernadette McCann House benefit this Saturday, May 25 at the AFAC Wing in Renfrew. Bernadette McCann House provides safe, emergency accommodation for women and children in Renfrew County. It has outreach programs in Arnprior, Pembroke, Renfrew, Killaloe, Deep River, Petawawa and Barry’s Bay. McDonell says he and the other two members of the trio, Riq Turner and Tom Van-

Coughnett, enjoy supporting community organizations. “We play a lot of charity events and we are very proud of the success we’ve had over the years for great causes like this,” he said. Ambush, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year is well known throughout the Ottawa Valley for playing toe-tapping, danceable music. Their repertoire ranges from traditional county to classic rock and roll with some of their own tunes thrown in to spice up the mix. They pride themselves on being able to get people out on the dance floor and have a great time. The fundraiser is titled “It’s Time to Rock” and the price of admission includes a lunch.

The theme is Blue/White and a splash of glitter. Priscilla Derouin chairs the board of Bernadette McCann House. She says all funds raised at the dance will be used to support the women, children and youth that they serve. “The funds aren’t used for capital costs,” she explained. “They are directed specifically to the special extraordinary needs of our clients.” Special needs could include food vouchers for those who might need a little more to get them through, or perhaps gas vouchers to help them get to appointments. Door opens at 7 p.m. Tickets cost $20 a person and can be purchased by calling Bernadette McCann House at 613-732-7776 or at the door.

His album ‘Another Morning’ was nominated for a Juno in 1998 and has since sold nearly 100,000 copies. His song ‘Afghanistan’ is now used at repatriation ceremonies at many Canadian legions where fallen soldier’s lives are celebrated by friends and family. On his new album, Cormier said he has strayed from his usual style. “It’s just not presented the same way as my other albums. I didn’t produce the record. It was produced by Jamie Foulds. I did that on purpose,” he said.

“I wanted to get away from producing my own stuff. There’s a lot more of me on the guitar than there is on other albums and it’s a different type of material all together.” His Arnprior concert is a general admission event. Seating and standing are firstcome, first-serve. Tickets are on sale for $20 for advance tickets until June 13 or $25 at the door on June 14. Tickets are non-refundable unless the show gets cancelled. Advance tickets are available at the John St. Pub or Steve & Dennis Restaurant.

Advancement, camp wrapping up Guiding girls season The Arnprior Guiding groups (Sparks, Brownies, Girl Guides, and Pathfinders) had their end-of-year Advancement Ceremony on Wednesday, May 15. Families attended and enjoyed a pot-luck dinner and were given a glimpse of each groupsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; opening and closing rituals, as well as seeing their daughters move up into a different level of guiding. The girls will be attending Camp Opemikon in June for a two-night camping excursion. This will be the end of the guiding season in Arnprior until September. If you would like to have your daughter (ages 5 and up) in Guiding next year, please register online at girlguides.ca or for more information email arnpriorgirlguides@gmail.com.

Jeff Maguire

EMC events - Those who attend an upcoming concert and dance in Carleton Place will find themselves transported back to the roots of rock and roll. The always popular Ottawa band ‘Eddy and the Stingrays’ will perform at Carleton Place and District Community Centre this Saturday, May 25 from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Sponsored by the Carleton Place Arena Staff Association, the venture will take the form of a 1950s and `60s era dance. It will be held in the main upper hall of the town’s arena complex on Neelin Street. Tickets cost $20 each. All proceeds from the venture will go to the Carleton Place Arena Fund which is in

place to raise money needed to make longterm improvements to the complex. The arena is one of the main focal points for activities in the growing town of 10,000. “We expect this to be a really popular show,” said Bob White, chief organizer of the show and dance. ATTENDANCE LIMITED

“We are limiting attendance to 300 in order to have a larger dance floor,” White explains. “There is something about that musical era. People come out in groups to enjoy an evening of nostalgia, dancing and fun.” Prizes will be awarded to the Best Dressed

Couple and the Best Dance Couple. Billed as Canada’s “No. 1 Rock and Roll Show and Dance Band,” Eddy and the Stingrays marked their 30th anniversary in 2010.
