EMC news – Arnprior council will extend the two-hour parking limit in the downtown core to three hours. The change was part of another look at an updated version of the town’s traffic control and parking bylaw. The decision followed council becoming aware of an issue with people attending in particular matinee movies that ran more than the two hours being ticketed. O’Brien Theatre owner Kevin Marshall expressed his concern with the situation in last week’s Chronicle-Guide EMC. Arnprior Mayor David Reid did point out that time violation parking infractions were not bylaw enforcement’s main priority and he made note that in all of August just eight tickets were issued for overtime parking – and all of those were for periods exceeding three hours. “Time violations actually form a very small portions of tickets issued and there are no quotas or directions to bylaw enforcement,” said Reid.

EMC sports - The Arnprior Packers Junior B club will have a whole new look, both on the ice and behind the bench, when it launches into a new season this Friday, Sept. 14. The whole coaching staff, including popular head coach Bill Griese, is gone as well as many of the top players from last year’s Eastern Ontario Junior B Valley Division championship team. New owner Marco Scapillati and his general manager Shawn Patrick have remade the team, embarking on a series of trades in the past month, including four major deals in four days early this week. On Tuesday, leading scorer and Valley Division MVP Taylor Collins was traded to Ottawa Junior Canadians for the playing rights for five players. The wholesale changes have many fans con-

Cloutier on Sunday

cerned, particularly as the Packers, without departed all-stars Collins and Shane Smith, were outscored 23-8 in three exhibition games leading up to the season opener in Renfrew Friday. However, Scapillati, who bought the team after its long playoff run last spring, says he is optimistic the Packers can be a contender again this year. “It will be a rebuilding year … but I’m hopeful we can contend and make another run for the championship,” he said. “We have a lot of good things in place here … we have a plan to make it a successful year … our goal is to make it worthwhile and fun for the players.” However, the president of M. Scapillati Flooring in Manotick says he isn’t pleased with the community’s response to the team and its new management so far.

EMC news – The pledge forms are out, the volunteers are in place and the arrangements have been made. All that is needed now is for the public to show up in force this Sunday, Sept. 16 at the Fairgrounds for the 32nd annual Arnprior Terry Fox Run. Stephen Dodd, who has taken over as facilitator of the run from Rita Cloutier, reports that people can drop by and participate anytime between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. “Pick a time convenient to you,” he urges. He also notes that participants can choose to walk or run one lap or 10 laps or any number they want. There will be a charity barbecue held in conjunction with the run, giving people another way to support the Terry Fox Foundation, he says.

Arnprior company builds custom pumper trucks for Kingston John Carter John.carter@metroland.com

EMC news – Arnprior Fire Trucks Corp. has been awarded contracts to design and manufacture custom pumper trucks for the City of Kingston. The firm received the contract after a request for proposals in July. The trucks will be built at the company’s state-of-the art plant in Arnprior with expected delivery expected to be in early 2013. “We are pleased to be working with Arnprior Fire Trucks Corp. to supply the City of Kingston with new custom pumpers,� said Kingston Fire & Rescue executive officer Greg Robinson. “They are a Canadian company that still builds strong, durable trucks with the level of quality and service the City was looking for.�

Arnprior council has approved Arnprior’s first Zombie Walk, which will be held Oct. 27 in Arnprior’s downtown. Plans include meeting at the Giant Tiger

“Our parts and service department is growing quickly also, as customers are enjoying old-fashioned customer service, excellent pricing and most important – support,� said Graeme Cross, the company’s business development manager. At Monday’s regular meeting of Arnprior council, Reeve Walter Stack applauded the announcement. “This is excellent news for one of our newer industries,� said Stack. Arnprior Fire Trucks was formed with the key employees of Seagrave Canada (formerly Almonte Fire Trucks) and pledge to continue building fire apparatus with the pride and quality that they have for over 20 years. For more information about the company or contract, visit www.arnpriorfiretrucks.net.

“To not enforce rules such as parking bylaws, in my mind, would be a waste of taxpayer dollars,� said Reid. “We put these rules in place for good reason.� There is a cost associated with changing signs and such, said Reid. Reeve Walter Stack agreed and noted there’s a need to be make the right decision, change the signs and not have to revisit the issue. All the areas in the downtown core that are currently signed two-hour parking limit between Monday and Thursday and Friday between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. be changed to three-hour limit Monday to Saturday 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Council also discussed and made revisions to parking regulations in the area around Arnprior and District High School.

Above left, Arnprior clerk Jacquie Farrow-Lawrence goes over parking regulations at Monday’s meeting. Left, a sign on the door of O’Brien Theatre supports extending the hours.

Arnprior Fire Trucks is quickly building a reputation for designing and building truly custom fire apparatus. Fire departments can purchase a truck that meets their individual requirements with quality not found in today’s cookie-cutter industry, says a release announcing the contract. The company has invested in high end CNC machining capabilities, laser cutters, laser welders and other precision machinery in addition to bringing together an experienced, skilled manufacturing team. The plant operates to the high AS9100 Aerospace quality standards. It shares the Plaintree resources of almost 100 employees including professional engineers, draftsmen, CAD operators, certified welders and support staff.

Residents are encouraged to attend Monday’s meeting to review and comment on the initial design concepts for the redevelopment of the streetscape in the study area. A presentation will be made explaining the options at 7 p.m. The downtown streetscape of John Street West and Elgin Street North requires infrastructure upgrades beneath the pavement. In a co-ordinated town effort, the street above ground (the streetscape) will be re-built in the near future. “Our consultation and design strategy is based on collaborative community building,� emphasized Grinstead in encouraging people to “help us define Arnprior’s new streetscape by sharing your ideas and thoughts.

The motion states that: • whereas, the Terry Fox Run is inspired by a dream, entirely volunteer-driven and

is grounded in traditions with events held annually around the world to foster research in the fight against cancer; • and whereas it has become a fall tradition in Canada to gather friends and family to participate in a volunteer fundraiser to raise public awareness and financial support for cancer research; • and whereas we recognize the importance of cancer research as part of the aims and objectives of the Terry Fox Run on behalf of the people of Canada, of our Province of Ontario and of the Town of Arnprior; • and whereas our local residents have taken the initiative to organize a Terry Fox Run for the past 31 years on the second Sunday following Labour Day; • therefore, I, David Reid, Mayor of Arnprior, do hereby proclaim Sunday, Sept. 16 as ‘Terry Fox Day’ in the Town of Arnprior; and call upon all residents to participate in the Terry Fox Run to raise money for cancer research.

During the course of the Mass of Thanksgiving, celebrated by Bishop Michael Mulhall, a new altarm crafted and constructed by John Smit of Dunrobin, was dedicated. Bishop Mulhall suggested the dedication of an altar should instill in all present a greater dedication to living the teachings of the Gospel and commended the parishioners on their contribution to the wider community through the different activities within the parish. At the conclusion of the Mass, the present Pastor, Father Robert Ryan, recognized some of the clergy and lay faithful who had been instrumental in the construction of the new Church, noting over the years one of the key points in the design was its accessi-

Our lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church congregation welcomed their chief Shepherd, the Most Rev. Michael Mulhall, to celebrate mass Sunday to mark the 25th Anniversary of the dedication of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church in Braeside. During mass he dedicated the new altar. In looking back on 25 years, the church’s minister, Father Robert Ryan, congratulated the original planners for their foresight in building an accessible parish. Among some of the recent renovations carried out at the church this spring include a shrine at the entrance, painting, upgraded washroom facilities and the new altar. A reception including lunch was held following the service. bility. The ease of access has allowed the church to be used by many different municipal and

community organizations. Fr. Ryan acknowledged the presence of a number of the priests assisting, including Fr.

Howard Chabot, the first resident parish priest after a long period when priests from St. John Chrysostom Parish came

to Braeside and Sand Point to celebrate Mass and provide Pastoral Care. He also made special note

of Fr. Joe O’Malley, who was Parish Priest at the time when the decision was made to purchase land on Dochart Street, and together with the building committee of the day, the parish council and the parishioners set about designing and seeing to completion the new parish church, hall and Rectory. Fr. Ryan thanked all who had been instrumental in the most recent renovations, and also those who participate and are active in the life and worship of the parish community. He also acknowledged that while dedicated to worship, the altar and the new ambo (lectern) had been given in loving memory of the late Michael Tremblay by his widow Jane Tremblay. On behalf of the McNabBraeside Council, Mayor Mary Campbell made a presentation extending congratulations to the Parish and appreciation for its presence within the Township. A catered luncheon was held following in the parish hall, allowing parishioners and friends to reminisce on past events while looking forward to the future. A pictorial directory is also being prepared.

Potential volunteer firefighters invited to open houses John Carter John.carter@metroland.com

EMC news – The McNab-Braeside Fire Department is looking for a few new recruits. To give prospective firefighters an idea of what is required, the fire department is holding open houses at all three of its fire halls Tuesday, Sept. 18 from 5:30-7 p.m. “We held open houses last year (during a recruiting drive) and they were a big success,” said fire chief Ken Walton.

He said firefighters will be on hand at all fire halls (Glasgow Station, White Lake and Braeside) to answer questions about the volunteer positions. The 46-person strong fire department could use a few more firefighters to replace people who have left, he explained. The fire department would also like to have a few more firefighters who are available during the day to attend fire calls. To be considered, a person (both males and females are welcome to apply) has to be at least 18 years old. Walton pointed out the fire department provides all the train-

Over the next two years, the Putting Students First Act will save taxpayers $2 billion, Education Minister Laurel Broten said.. “This legislation is another way our government is taking strong action to put students first and to maintain Ontario’s reputation as a world leader in publicly funded education,” Broten said. “We’re working hard to protect the extraordinary gains we’ve made together in education over the last nine years.”

EMC news – The passing of the provincial government’s Putting Students First Act Tuesday has angered Ontario’s teachers and has them considering limiting their voluntary activies. After the act was passed, the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario urged its 76,000 public members to ‘take a pause’ on voluntary activities in response to the “draconian legislation” that strips them of their democratic rights. The passing of the act also has high school teachers pondering their options, with many set to coach high school sports such as football, track, basketball and volleyball that begin seasons next week. “Given this extraordinary and unwarranted legislation, we are advising our members to ‘take a pause’ on the voluntary activities they undertake in schools,” said Sam Hammond, president of the ETFO. “While they will remain focussed on teaching students and ensuring student safety, teachers and other educational professionals will need to consider very carefully what they can afford to do outside of their instructional responsibilities.” ETFO is also introducing ‘McGuinty Mondays’ in protest of the legislation. Teachers and education professionals will be urged not to participate in school-based or system level meetings of any kind nor participate in regional Ministry meetings on Mondays for the foreseeable future. This is the initial step in an escalating protest strategy, according to Hammond. “We do not take this action lightly. Ontarians and the government need to know that you cannot take away the democratic rights of working people simply to fulfill a political party’s agenda or ideology,” said Hammond. “Collective bargaining rights are central to ensuring that working people are treated with dignity, respect, and fairness in the workplace. If the premier can get away with abolishing our rights, we need to ask ‘who’s next?’ ETFO and others also plan to challenge the legislation in court. McGuinty Government Protecting the Classroom Experience, Fighting the Deficit The passage of the Putting Students First Act protects the gains made in education while ensuring that the next two school years will be free from labour disruptions. The Putting Students First Act - based on the memorandum of understanding between the government and the Ontario English Catholic Teachers’ Association (OECTA) - gives school boards, teachers and support staff until Dec. 31 to engage in local collective bargaining and accept agreements consistent with the government’s fiscal and policy priorities. According to Premier Dalton McGuinty, the priorities include maintaining investments in full-day kindergarten, keeping class sizes

Get electoral boundary changes right

U

ndertaking the task of redrawing federal electoral boundaries is surely daunting, but it serves to ensure all Canadians are as equitably represented in the House of Commons as possible. While the recent announcement of a proposed federal electoral map makes several positive moves for area voters in Lanark and West Carleton, it also fails to address an issue that many residents

of this area can relate to: the urban-suburban-rural divides. The total number of electoral districts required in Ontario has grown by 15 to 121, triggered by 2011 census data showing this province’s population has grown by more than 1.4 million since 2001. According to the proposal created by a federal electoral boundaries commission, a number of new ridings have been created in areas of dramatic population growth

across the province. Some existing riding boundaries have likewise been adjusted. Among them are the proposed new riding of Nepean and the renamed riding of Carleton-Kanata, formerly Carleton-Mississippi Mills. There are positive aspects to both of these moves, but they were easy decisions to make. Move the western border of the renamed Carleton-Kanata riding to the city limits, break off the well-populated suburban chunk of the massive

Nepean-Carleton riding and name it Nepean. Job done. But there are missed opportunities here. Residents in rural places like Carp, Fitzroy Harbour and Dunrobin are still at the mercy of the suburban voters in Kanata. The voices of voters in Dwyer Hill, North Gower and Metcalfe are still drowned out by residents of Stittsville, Riverside South and Greely – larger, denser suburban nooks in what is mainly a rural riding.

These examples stand out as missed opportunities for the commission, opportunities to ensure voters receive fair, balanced representation in the House of Commons. Presently, it must be difficult for an MP, such as Nepean-Carleton’s Pierre Poilievre or Carleton-Mississippi Mills’ Gordon O’Connor, to balance the way they represent their constituents. They are beholden to two different viewpoints, but one of those viewpoints gets them

elected, the other – owing to smaller numbers – doesn’t. The federal electoral commission should be doing its utmost to make this balancing act easier for our elected officials, so they can serve an electorate with common concerns. If it involves redrawing the entire electoral map to ensure the population is balanced, so be it. As for Renfrew-NipissingPembroke, the only proposed change is to drop Nipissing from the name. If they are going to rename the riding, they should consider ArnpriorDeep River, considering they are the two extremities, not Pembroke and Renfrew.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Multitude of wise prevails in Quebec To the editor: The Quebec election was indeed a roller coaster ride. The politicians dictated the ‘planks’, the pollsters polled and forecast the results incorrectly, and there was the high drama with an attempted assassination. Very few considered the big picture by the electorate except the electorate itself, and they rose to the occasion as they tend always to do. Simply put, it was about ‘change’. People tend to be frightened of ‘change’, but we all experience it one way or the other. It is nothing to be afraid of. It is about the human experience and without ‘change’ we stagnate. Quebec society in the past few years has witnessed corruption in and around government. The government has had a number of scandals that it just could not distance itself from and. of course. there is always the ‘bogey man’ in the room called separation. The people of Quebec wanted the QPL out of office, but they didn’t want to hand over the reins of a majority to the PQ. They also do not

want another referendum. So they did what a well informed and sophisticated people do, they exercised their right as the ‘multitude of the wise’ and sent a clear message to the QPL. They elected a minority PQ government. Think of it as a ‘check and balance’ decision. The clear message sent to the PQ was do not mess with a good thing i.e. confederation and Quebec’s place in Canada. If the PQ does not get it, then the ‘multitude of the wise’ will exercise its wisdom and turf this bunch as well. By the way, this scenario plays itself out in all other political jurisdictions in our society be they federal, provincial and, yes, municipal. All political people really ought to pay attention to ‘the multitude of the wise’. They are head and shoulders above most of our elected officials who tend to be caught up in their sense of self importance. Thomas Charbonneau Arnprior

Young summer readers’ imaginations soared To the editor: Our imaginations took flight this summer at the Arnprior Public Library and we have many people and organizations to thank for helping us soar. Participants in our TD Summer Reading Club who read a minimum of 40 TD Summer Reading Club selections were invited to celebrate their accomplishments at our Super Reader Party. A sincere thank you goes out to Dan Lynch and the Arnprior Airport for hosting the festivities and also to Carolyn and John Chapman and their team at Chapman Aviation for explaining how planes are maintained and repaired and for allowing us to tour their hangar. The Mile High Parachute Club had us gasping in awe as we watched members jump from a plane and Trevor even let us help pack up his gear.

Many raffle prizes were donated and every child left with a prize thanks to the generosity of the people at Dairy Queen, East Side Mario’s, Home Hardware, the Nick Smith Centre, the O’Brien Theatre and Sweet and Sassy Co. The Rotary Club of Arnprior once again provided funds that enabled us to run a full calendar of programs over the summer months, and for this we are extremely grateful. Congratulations and thanks to all of the local children who were committed readers; the parents, grandparents and caregivers who made library visits a priority; and to the volunteers who gave so generously of their time. We look forward to next summer and the stories we will share. Keep reading. Carolyn Swayze Children’s and Teen Services Arnprior Public Library

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

We can, and must, continue to fund the CBC To the editor: I had intended to respond to Ms Gallant’s attack on the CBC but Mr. Parchelo’s witty, if somewhat heavy handed letter (Chronicle Guide EMC, Aug. 23) pre-empted me. However, Mr. Tuck’s response (Aug 30) to that letter moved me to join the debate. I have three observations I should like to make: Mr. Tuck calls Mr. Parchelo’s letter “insulting to our MP and other residents.” If that is so, then I suggest his referring to Parchelo’s letter as “the lowest form of wit ... sarcastic, juvenile and tasteless pap” as insulting to Parchelo and those residents, including me, who agree with him. Come now, Mr. Tuck, democracy demands that conflicting opinions be aired and expressed forcefully. Our rather anaemic democracy needs a great deal more vigorously and publicly defended positions. Mr. Tuck suggests seriously cutting back the CBC to “Radio 2” (which he personally enjoys) “a bit of news and programs and ... the infrastructure for emergency broadcast.” I agree with him to some extent, but I would go further. I do not know what he means

by “a bit of news and programs.” We need a much better news service than the CBC presently supplies with its emphasis on accidents and violent crime. That sort of thing is supplied in excess by “the ga-zillions of sources of news ....” who rely on advertising revenue and serve the interests of the corporate elites. Good solid news requires in-depth reporting by investigative journalists at home and a phalanx of foreign correspondence abroad. CBC used to do that and it didn’t cost the earth, but corporate interests won’t pay for it so there has to be public funding. The CBC had a mandate “to explain Canadians to themselves,” which they have increasingly failed to do. This diverse and fragile federation is desperately in need of that, but don’t ask corporations with no loyalty to Canada to do it for us; again, public funding. Now we come to Mr. Tuck’s assertion that “millions of Canadians are waking up to the reality that we can no longer afford such extravagance ...” I suggest we can, and must, afford them and that those “millions of Canadians” are

being brainwashed by the one per cent who want to cut their taxes even more. What we can afford will be determined by how we organize our economy and the manner in which we distribute the wealth that economy produces. My third point deals not with the CBC but with Ms. Gallant’s intervention. Before the Conservatives formed a government, Gallant was free to “gallop off in all directions.” However, once the Conservatives were in power, Gallant was reigned

in by that notorious control freak Stephen Harper and his PMO. She was left one hobby horse to ride – the long gun registry which Harper kept in place by pretending that he could not get rid of it because he had a minority government. This, of course, was nonsense – the opposition were so distracted by internal problems that they dared not risk an election. Harper could have carried a bill to abolish the gun registry in the first week of his first government. The Liberals would have abstained or seen to it that sufficient of their

members developed “division bell flu” to allow the bill to pass as they did with many more important pieces of legislation that they could not support but dared not defeat. Harper preferred to leave the registry in place as a stick to beat the Liberals and to give backbenchers like Gallant a talking point. Once they had a majority, they could no longer avoid eliminating the registry. Ms Gallant had lost a much loved hobby horse. Enter the CBC. Harper’s ideological hatred of it meant that she, muffled by the PMO in most areas, could vent her spleen against it. Hence her partisan and imbalanced attack on a once excellent and admired institution, savaged by successive governments, both Liberal and Conservative. Brian Shackleton Admaston

Everyone invited to plow match To the editor: I want to take this opportunity to invite everyone to the 2012 Renfrew County Plowing Match being held on Saturday, Sept. 15 at the Smith Farm located at 462 Marjorie Rd. just off of Foresters Falls Road in Cobden. This year’s event is very special because the organizers have developed a program that is geared towards children and farm families. Not only will you be met with the traditional aspects of farming, but there will be lots of music, children’s activities and performers, and there are plenty of food vendors on site.

This year has been particularly tough for our local farmers because of the sever e drought conditions, yet despite this challenge, our farming community has pulled together to get through this challenging year. So why not come out to the plowing match and show your support for our local farmers. Children under 15 are free, and adults pay $7.50. Whitewater Region is proud to host this year’s plowing match. Jim Labow, Mayor Whitewater Region Township

Keep helping eradicate polio To the editor: Humanity is about to eradicate polio after three decades of continuous efforts to immunize the children of the world. Thanks to the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI), the total number of polio cases decreased from 350,000 in 1988 to 650 in 2011, and to only a little more than 100 since the beginning of 2012. Polio resurgence around the world after so many years of effort would be disastrous. We would probably then lose forever the chance to

eradicate the disease. Canada has played an important role in the polio eradication over the last decade, being the fifth largest donor to GPEI. I do wish the Harper government will reverse its decision to cut in this important health initiative Sept. 27, at the United Nations General Assembly, and will maintain its $35-million contribution per year to the GPEI until polio eradication is achieved. Bruno Marquis Gatineau

Skillful flying hunters visit Arnprior and region

Michael Runtz Nature’s Way

EMC lifestyle – Recently I was passing through Arnprior and decided to check the Ottawa and Madawaska rivers for birds. Those waters hold great potential for harbouring interesting birds, especially in late summer and fall. With me was Jon Ruddy, an up-and-coming birder with exceptional eyesight and attention to detail. We found nothing of interest in the Ottawa River, so we headed for the Madawaska behind Saint John Chrysostom Church. As we passed the church,

MICHAEL RUNTZ

A young Peregrine in flight. we scanned the bell tower to see if any Peregrine Falcons

were present. In April 1985 I came across one there and it

was later thought a pair nested as a family with young turned up later that summer. Since then, Peregrines have been spotted regularly in the vicinity of the church. However, the only confirmed local nesting remains one observed by Tony Beck and myself across the river in Quebec. Jon and I could see no falcons on the steeple’s south face, but we spotted a large lump perched atop a circular structure on its east-facing side. It was an adult Peregrine Falcon. Many of the nesting Per-

egrines in Ontario sport leg bands courtesy of the Canadian Wildlife Service, but through my spotting scope we could see this bird lacked any. Occasionally the falcon would gently clean its feathers with its meat-hook bill, but otherwise looked as if it had settled in for the night. Minutes earlier Jon had spotted a Merlin sitting atop a dead tree on Ottawa Street across from the church. Merlins are smaller cousins of Peregrines, and a number of pairs nest in our area, including one in the cemetery north of the church. Seeing two falcon species at the same time was a rare treat. I made squealing sounds by sucking on the back of my fingers and the Peregrine’s head spun around. I was astonished to see that its left eye was nothing more than a bulging white mass. It obviously had experienced some sort of trauma. Many years ago a Peregrine died at the church from a shotgun wound. While this bird’s injury may have come from a similar experience, it is also possible that the bird was injured while chasing a prey. Hunting Peregrines dive from great heights at recorded speeds up to 240 miles (!) per hour, striking their target with lethal talons, sometimes tearing it open on contact. It is possible that during such a dive, known as a stoop, our bird had hit some unseen object. Or perhaps either claws or a bill of its intended victim hit its eye. Accidents during chases are not uncommon causes of death for predatory animals. If you want to see a falcon, I recommend heading for the Catholic Church. After all, what better place for a “bird of pray” to hang out! On Friday, Sept. 28, I will be giving a presentation titled The Bear that Ate Me (Almost) and Other Tales from the Wild at a gala dinner/fundraiser in Almonte for the Mississippi Madawaska Land Trust Conservancy.

Poverty report ranks Ontario last in Canada for social programs EMC news – Ontario is dead last among provinces when it comes to funding social programs, a new report has revealed. An Ontario-wide coalition of almost 100 groups and organizations, called Ontario Common Front, examined the growing inequity. On Aug. 29 it released Falling Behind: Ontario’s backslide into widening inequity, growing poverty and cuts to social programs. Despite having among the world’s most highly educated workers, an abundance of natural resources, and an industrial base, the report shows that Ontario is falling behind the rest of Canada in terms of growing poverty, increasing inequity and flagging financial support for public services. It blames choices made by governments, not international economic trends, for the downward spiral. “Today, 600,000 Ontario families find their incomes stalled or falling behind, while the richest 10 per cent gallop away with the bounty from the sustained period of economic growth stretching from the mid-1900s to 2008,� the report reads. The report found that: * 40 per cent of Ontarians, 600,000 families, are struggling with incomes that are stagnant or declining; * Ontario funds all of its social programs, including health care to education, at the lowest rate in Canada; * While poverty rates fell in five provinces, Ontario had the second highest increase in poverty rates and intensity, leaving 393,000 children in poverty (one in seven); * Ontarians pay the highest school fees, outof-pocket health care fees and tuition fees in the country while leading the nation in cuts to corporate and income taxes. The report blames both the Liberal and Progressive Conservative governments for prioritizing tax cuts for the wealthy over equality-creating public programs. The report tracks the decline with examples such as: the average CEO takes home 250 times the income of the average Canadian, while a generation ago that ratio was 25 times the average.

Morgan Goddard, the NDP riding association president for Carleton-Mississippi Mills, said there is little difference between the Liberals and PCs when it comes to spending priorities. Both believe in the myth of “austerity� meant to convince the middle and working classes to give up more just as the wealthiest take even more, he said. “Austerity measures are not working; it’s causing greater poverty, and that’s just not right,� Goddard said. “It’s always easy to blame the poor.� He noted Kanata is one of the wealthiest areas of the country. But even there personal debt is piling up and two-income families are no further ahead than the one income families of the 1960s and 1970s. Goddard said the reality of trickledown economics – introduced by Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan during the early 1980s - is that children get neglected because parents are working longer hours, communities suffer because fewer people can volunteer their time, and ecological and financial debt is loaded onto future generations. In West Carleton, where Goddard lives, poverty can be masked somewhat. But the reality is many people are couch surfing and using the emergency food cupboard like never before. He said the solution is to shift the burden away from the working and middle class to restoring a balance with the wealthiest. Increasing the income tax rate by one per cent of those making over $500,000 per year – about 30,000 people in Ontario – would “cover everything missing on social spending,� he added. However, Goddard admits there are plenty of catchy slogans and false arguments that convince poor people they deserve to be poor. There is the “rich people have earned their wealth� argument, which often isn’t true because of inheritance laws. There is the “rich people create jobs� argument, which isn’t borne out by statistics showing most jobs are created by small and medium sized businesses. There is the “government can’t do anything right� argument, which blames civil servants rather than politicians who serve power elites instead of the majority of voters.

“Mostly it’s that people are willing to believe what is convenient. If they don’t want to give money to the poor, it can be as simple as greed,� he said. “I think that’s a false self-interest.� Ontario Health Coalition director Natalie Mehra, primary author of the report, said the province is on a five-year plan to cut public sector jobs and services that will worsen the situation for everyone.

She said Ontario residents are paying for the current shortfall in “hundreds of ways,� from the highest tuition and school fees, the highest proportion of out-of-pocket health care costs, a burgeoning array of user fees, and thousands of families wait years for support for children with disabilities.

The shelter would be willing to reduce Roscoe’s adoption fee for the right home. Please consider adopting this handsome guy, he’s tired of living in a cage.

TRAFFIC DELAYS RETURN R0011554884

Work has resumed on the old CNR overpass on Highway 17 just east of Renfrew, causing delays as traffic is reduced to one lane. The work started in the spring and after a summer break will continue for most of the fall.

On Tuesday, Arnprior OPP issued a release saying they had launched an assault investigation on Thursday, Sept. 6. As a result, on Sunday, Sept. 9 an arrest warrant was issued for the 37-year-old Eamer.

EMC lifestyle – Writing and poetry are the focus of a new initiative being launched this month in Arnprior. ʻArnprior Expressionsʼ will feature a visit by three poets and follow up with a writing workshop, both at the Arnprior Public Library. The library is sponsoring the two events in partnership with the Ottawa International Writers Festival and Farrow Dreessen Architects. Arnprior Expressions begins in the library on Friday, Sept. 28 at 7 p.m. with three acclaimed poets Phil Hall, David OʼMeara and Sandra Ridley. On Saturday, Sept. 29, Phil Jenkins will give an all-day writing workshop starting at 9:30 a.m. The theme for the inaugural weekend is The Poetry of Place. Arnprior Expressions is a celebration of the dynamic and challenging relationship between rural communities and cities, and how this relationship defines the over-all health and creativity of residentsʼ lives. Arnprior Expressions will become an annual event. “I am thrilled, as we celebrate our 150th birthday, to be working with The Writers Festival and Farrow Dreessen Architects to explore all aspects of creativity and the ideas that shape our communities,” said Arnprior chief librarian Karen DeLuca. “It is my hope that Arnprior Expressions will grow into a hub of ideas and innovation for all things artistic and creative.” ʻ”I have been intrigued by the rich cultural

life of the Ottawa Valley since I moved to Ottawa from rural New Brunswick in 1967,” said Neil Wilson, founding director of the Ottawa International Writers Festival. “I look forward to working with the Arnprior community and beyond to showcase the contributions that Arnprior and rural communities in general contribute to our economic and cultural life.” “Farrow Dreessen Architects has a very special relationship with the Arnprior Public Library,” noted James Farrow. IN MEMORY OF JASON

“It was Jason Birch, our employee, who was the project leader for the renovation and expansion of the library when he tragically passed away in an accident in October 2010 (when a rock from a passing dump truck went through his windshield on Carp Road). We are dedicating our participation to the memory of this brilliant young man who was a passionate reader and loving father and husband.” The Friday poetry reading is being offered free of charge, but preregistration is required to guarantee a seat. The all-day writing workshop costs $50. Jenkins is well known as a columnist for the Ottawa Citizen and one of Canadaʼs finest non-fiction writers with a keen eye for place and history. To pre-register for the poetry reading and to register for the writing workshop, please go to writersfestival.org.

House renovations program overwhelmed with applications Ontario Renovates is a program that provides financial assistance to homeowners by way of a forgivable loan to repair their home to acceptable standards while improving the energy efficiency and/or increasing accessibility of their unit. However, due to the overwhelming number of applications received,

EMC news – The Ontario Renovates Program is too popular for its own good in Renfrew County. The County of Renfrew, in partnership with the Province of Ontario, introduced a new program in August to assist seniors and disabled individuals in accessing funding for upgrades to their homes.

the Renfrew County Housing Corporation is no longer accepting applications to the program. Housing corporation general manager Carol Neill thanked residents for their support for the new program. “We were amazed at the popularity of the Ontario Renovates Program,” she said. “It is encouraging

Proper battery disposal urged, depots in Arnprior lacking “Recycling your batteries is convenient and easy-to-do,” claims Paul Gerard, spokesperson for Stewardship Ontario, the private not-for-profit company that runs Orange Drop, a program providing Ontario residents with a free, safe and easy way to dispose of materials that are harmful to the environment if disposed of incorrectly.

EMC lifestyle – When it comes to fall cleaning, a quick search through your house can sometimes turn up some unexpected discoveries such as a ball of elastic bands, old light bulbs and used batteries in your drawers and closets. Some items are merely clutter, while others are actually waste that may be harmful to the environment. It could be that you’re like the many people who are hanging onto their batteries because they don’t know what to do with them, or simply putting them in the garbage with regular household waste, says Stewardship Ontario. In fact, a third of Ontarians say they typically dispose of batteries by throwing them in the garbage or including them in their Blue Box, where batteries are not accepted.

BATTERIES POLLUTE

“Some batteries contain materials that are harmful to our environment if disposed of incorrectly, and it’s our responsibility to ensure that doesn’t happen, he added. Not only does separating batteries from your garbage prevent potentially harmful materials from contaminating our drinking water, but prop-

Corporation. Funding is provided in the form of a 10-year, interestfree forgivable loan to homeowners based on the cost of approved work items up to $10,000. Funding for accessibility repairs made up to a maximum of $3,500 was in the form of a grant does not require repayment.

erly recycled batteries have valuable resources that can be recovered and used as new ingredients in producing new goods. Stewardship Ontario advises residents that the next time you stumble upon some forgotten used batteries, “remember to take them to one of the over 2,000 drop-off locations in the province to have them recycled.” Unfortunately, the nearest depot to Arnprior is the Renfrew Household Hazardous Waste Depot, which is closed from mid-August to mid-May. However, there are numerous other places, such as retail stores, you can drop-off your used single-use batteries to be recycled. For more information about Orange Drop, visit www.makethedrop.ca.

Income limit upped for energy assistance program EMC news – An increase in income criteria means thousands more needy households in Eastern Ontario can get free help to reduce their energy bills. Union Gas and Enbridge Gas Distribution’s home weatherization retrofit programs and the Ontario Power Authority’s home assistance program have increased their household income thresholds. The new household income eligibility levels for the programs are as follows: 1 person $31,452, 2 people - $39,155, 3 people - $48,137, 4 people - $58,444, 5 people - $66,288,

6 people - $74,760 and 7 or more people $83,236 Households can also qualify for the funding if they benefit from various government support programs. The natural gas and electricity conservation programs help households in need save significant money on their annual utility bills by reducing the amount of energy needed to heat, cool and power their homes. The programs are available to households that own or rent single, semi-detached and town houses. The free conservation opportunities range

from a full house retrofit that provides free insulation upgrades in exterior and interior basement walls and the attic to providing and installing free energy saving items like showerheads, power bars, compact fluorescent light bulbs and refrigerators. The value of the free products and services range from as little as $10 to as much as $7,500 per house. The annual savings to households can add up to $750 per year. In 2011, EnviroCentre’s gas weatherization work saved over 700,000 cubic metres of natural gas in 611 homes, which translates to more than

a quarter million dollars in savings or an average yearly savings of about $470 per home. EnviroCentre is an Ottawa-based non-profit organization that strives to reduce climate changing gas emissions by delivering energy efficiency programs and services. It has conducted almost 25,000 home energy audits, provided free insulation and weatherization services to thousands of low-income families in the region, and has distributed tens of thousands of energy saving products since 1999.

Muir said Parkinson’s walks happen in about 95 places in Canada on the same weekend. “Each of you here is helping to make a difference in the life of someone with Parkinson’s.” The walk made its way from Ma-Te-Way down the Millennium Trail to Barnet Boulevard and back, a distance of 7.2 kilometres, but Muir said, it’s not about the distance, but just participating. He thanked Donna McWhirter for leading the staff of volunteers, and Miss Teen Ontario East Grace Stewart, who with her mom Janice, ran a table selling T-shirts. “We had 15 to 20 volunteers. This event wouldn’t happen without them,” Muir

We raised $7,800. “I’m quite pleased with how it went,” said Alan Muir, special events and community engagement manager of Parkinson’s Society Ottawa. “We had about 60 people, including 33 registered walkers. “We got a lot of really nice feedback and people are looking forward to next year,” Muir added. “Compared to the weather we had the day before, it was really good.” The rain Saturday forced Ottawa to postpone its Parkinson’s walk. “This is the first ever Parkinson’s SuperWalk in Renfrew. “I’m thrilled to see all of you and some of your fourlegged friends,” Muir said to participants before the walk began.

A recent investment by a family owned company is making business news in Eastern Ontario. NOCO Canada, a family owned and locally operated company has been serving Canada’s energy needs for decades. The company is leveraging their rich heritage in the business with an expansion of their fuel and lubricant operations into the Trenton and Ottawa areas. As a proud Esso and Mobil branded reseller, NOCO supplies heating oil, gasoline, diesel, and lubricants to serve residential, farm, commercial, and industrial customers. “With almost eighty years of experience in the energy business, we are honoured to have the opportunity to serve the hard working consumers of this region,” noted Mark Yeatman, General Manager of NOCO Fuels Canada, a wholly owned subsidiary of NOCO Canada. With this expansion, NOCO has established more local offices to efficiently and safely deliver high-quality products at competitive prices. With office locations in Toronto, Trenton, Ottawa and Pembroke, NOCO simplifies access for their customers by allowing them to get all of their products from one place. One major change customers will see is the elimination of a national call center. By establishing local offices and working with local personnel, NOCO is keeping business local and investing in communities. Other improved operations include online ordering and automatic payments, with online billpay coming soon. NOCO’s customers can expect the prompt, courteous, and dependable service they deserve. As the second largest Mobil distributor in North America, NOCO’s expansion has created a stronger product mix to more completely serve their customers. The company provides a full line of Mobil lubricants for automotive, fleet, industrial, metalworking, and specialty needs. NOCO also offers a used oil recycling program in some areas to make sure that businesses never need to worry about the proper collection, transportation, and processing of the waste they generate. “We believe the addition of the new products and new geography allows NOCO to address unmet consumer needs in the territory. Along with our key product brands, Mobil and Esso, we offer excellent service and local personnel. Our distribution model is strong and this new venture will provide strong value to the consumers throughout the region,” said James D. Newman, President of NOCO Canada.

EMC events - Valley residents whose lives have been affected by kidney disease will walk Sunday, Sept. 23 to increase awareness of a cause very close to them, while raising funds to support the Kidney Foundation of Canada. Area dialysis patients, transplant recipients, living donors, families, friends and renal professionals will converge on Renfrew as part of a large movement across the province, with more than 40 communities participating throughout the month. Participants will gather at 10 a.m. Sept. 23 at Ma-Te-Way Park for this area’s walk. About 1.5 million Ontarians have, or are at increased risk of developing, kidney disease. There is no cure – patients with end-stage renal disease rely on life-saving dialysis treatments several times a week, and many join thousands of Canadians waiting for a kidney transplant.

EMC lifestyle - As Reid Brothers Motor Sales, a Valley tradition since 1953, marks another anniversary, ArnpriorBraeside-McNab Seniors at Home celebrates the fact that the company has, and continues to, support the community from which this family business grew. General manager Trevor Reid, the third generation of Reids, is a strong supporter of the agency as an official sponsor of the Care Coach and the campaign ‘To Keep The Wheels Turning’. Founded by Stanley Reid (Trevor’s grandfather) and Carleton Reid 58 years ago Reid Brothers supported many local charities, a tradition that continued over the years with Robert (Trevor’s father) and Eddie Reid at the helm. They just didn’t work in the town, they ‘lived’ the community, giving back to many local charities and organizations over the years, including Seniors At Home, Arnprior Hospital ER campaign, local food bank, various service clubs, volunteer events and most recently the Partners In Caring Digital Mammography campaign. Since the annual campaign to ‘Keep the Wheels Turning’ on the Para Transit vehicle offered by Seniors at Home started July 5 with the ‘Yellow Envelope Mail-Out’, it has received $22,129.15.

Special Olympics the winner in challenge ball game EMC sports - Arnprior’s finest were beaten in two games Monday evening in a challenge by local ball players and Special Olympics athletes. The combined squad of Arnprior police officers and firefighters fell 5-1 to the younger players and 13-5 to the Arnprior Red Sox at the McLean Street diamonds. The Red Sox, who won their division last weekend, had just returned from their final tournament of the season. The OPP-firefighters team accepted the challenge put forward by Greg Murdoch. During a campaign this summer in which Community Living Renfrew County South members helped the OPP dis-

tribute a robbery prevention program to local businesses, Murdoch told officers his players could beat the OPP team. During the games, Arnprior OPP interim detachment commander Julie Cyr noted her team members are better police officers than baseball players. Instead of passing the bucket at Monday night’s game as originally planned, police officers are asking the community to participate in red shoelace day. Individuals can support Special Olympics in their communities by going online at www.specialolympics.org to purchase a red shoe lace to be worn Oct. 25.

7KH'D\3URJUDP 7KH'D\3URJUDP Arnprior Regional Health brings our hospital, nursing home and other health care services together under one umbrella for more coordinated care. This allows Arnprior Regional Health to offer increased collaboration with other health care and community partners. An existing collaboration between the United Way of Renfrew County and the Grove Nursing is celebrating ten years of working together. In 2002 the United Way of Renfrew County agreed to provide funding to the Adult Day Program at the Grove. At the time, the Adult Day Bingo is a popular activity at the Day Program Program was a grass roots initiative designed and run by volunteers since 1997. Its main focus was to offer a safe place for people, with the early stages of Alzheimer’s and Dementia, to go a few times a week to provide some respite to the care giver. Over the years, and due to funding from the United Way, the program was able to hire a staff person as well as extend its services to seniors having issues with meal preparation. These seniors are now able to attend the Adult Day Program, receive a nutritious meal and socialize. The Adult Day Program has also relied on the services offered by Carefor Health and Community Services (Carefor) to run this program. Carefor has provided transportation to attendees of the program. If it wasn’t for the Carefor van from Pembroke some people would not have had a way to get to the Grove. Carefor can’t manage all the transportation but luckily the Arnprior-Braeside-McNab Seniors at Home is also able to help. Ten years since the program formally began with the initial start up funding from the United Way, the Tuesday session now has a wait list. Twenty six people currently attend on Tuesday but Wednesday and Friday still have spots available. “Many comments have been coming in from family members and caregivers who are very thankful and appreciative of this program. As the coordinator I am encouraged by the support of the families and caregivers, and the great reputation that has developed. Nothing is better than someone calling me and telling me that their neighbor, friend, colleague has highly recommended our program, it really is the best advertising,” said Audrey Edwards.

Blues edge Arsenals in local soccer ‘derby’ Vinnie Jones

Above, Sean Debeau’s long goal kicks were one of the keys to the Blues success this season.

SUBMITTED CLARK YOUNG

Zak Butterly and Jason Virgin celebrate after the winning goal. lighted by Jamie Dewar leading the way in scoring with five goals and goalkeeper Arthur Martin keeping a clean sheet in a win against rivals Almonte as the team battled to earn enough points to stay in the division. Despite their efforts, the Arsenals could not secure enough points to keep them in the division before the local derby and even with a win against the Blues they would still drop down a division next season. So with pride on the line and local bragging rights at stake, the two Arnprior teams took to the pitch at Dochart Park. There was plenty of action in the first half with the Blues getting the majority of the chances, which were thwarted mostly by the defensive efforts of Bill Currie. It was deadlocked until the last minute of play in the half, when the Blues earned a throw-in deep in the Arsenals end. Jeff O’Brien took one of his patented long throw-ins right into the goal area and

Butterly headed the ball into the net with a deflection of an Arsenals defender. So the Blues took a oneto-nil lead into the half-time break. The action continued in the second half with both teams getting chances, but they were both unable to add to the scoresheet. The Arsenals put in a late effort, hitting the post in injury time, but could not convert. The match ended before they could equalize, in favor of the Blues with a final score of one-nil. The Blues finished their season in fifth place with 28 points and stand to do well next season if all players remain healthy. The Arsenals finished in 15th place with 11 points and will move down a division for next season. This is only the second time in history the two Arnprior teams have ever faced each other competitively in over 10 years of existence. The first time was two years ago with the Blues earning a victory on the strength of a goal from

EMC sports – In the United Kingdom, a Derby (pronounced Dar-bee) is when two local football (soccer) teams from the same town or city face each other in competitive play. Well it could not get more local at Dochart Park Friday, Aug. 31, when the Arnprior Blues faced the Arnprior Arsenals in their final match of the season in Ottawa Carleton Old Timers Soccer League action. The two Arnprior squads went through contrasting seasons over the summer. After an opening day loss, the Blues went on a five-game undefeated streak and found themselves comfortably in the top half of the table in the 16-team division. Then the Blues turned black and blue and faced a series of injuries that plagued a number of players. After suffering a couple of tough losses in midseason games, the Blues regained their form in the leadup to their final match against the Arsenals. Their season had many accomplishments, including Zak Butterly leading the team in scoring with 11 goals and finishing in the top five for scoring in the division. Hat tricks were scored by Jason Virgin and Butterly. There were two clean sheets by net minders Bruce Hartill and Gord Ferrier, which was complimented by the outstanding defending efforts of Sean Debeau. The Arsenals however, faced challenges right from the start of their season. After an opening day win, they went on to lose their next eight fixtures, leaving them near the bottom of the table facing relegation. Injuries for the Arsenals played a big factor in their results. The valiant Arsenals put in a noble effort, winning two and drawing one of their matches as they approached their final game. Their season was high-

Packers to help food bank at home opener Continued from front

“I’m not a happy owner,” he said Tuesday, noting he has had trouble getting local businesses to sponsor the Packers so far this season. “I love hockey … that’s why I bought the team,” said Scapillati, a Barrhaven resident who has two boys playing minor hockey. “It’s also a way to give back to the community. But I want community support back … and so far I’m not impressed.” He said one of his main goals is to get local players involved in the team. “I gather every little kid playing hockey in Arnprior wants to be a Packer,” he said. However, if Arnprior doesn’t support the Packers with local players on board, it shouldn’t be automatically expected the team will favour Arnprior players when picking its roster, he added. Scapillati said despite the cool reception, he wants his team to be involved in the community. For the Packers’ home opener Friday, Sept. 21 when Almonte Thunder comes to town, the team is holding a promotion in support of the Arnprior and District Food Bank. Anyone bringing a food bank donation to the game will get in free. “We’ve got several things (community promotions) planned,” he said. “I’m doing my best. I hope the community responds.” Scapillati said he’ll be a hands-on owner and expects to attend all the Packer games. Griese along with his assistants Glenn Arthur, Steve Frost and Scott Cowie and Lee Nixon stepped down, or were let go, depending on interpretation, in late August. Griese said the coaches got together and decided their position was untenable after it become clear a promise they would be in charge of player decisions had been taken from them. Griese said the departing coaches are disappointed, as they had put a great deal of work on the team after getting an understanding from Scapillati in June that he and Patrick wouldn’t tinker with a winning formula. “After the meeting in June, I thought it would all work out,” he said. “We made it crystal clear to him (owner) how the organization works and why it was so successful. “We (coaches) were excited about this season,” he added. “We had a slogan in place, Back-to-Back,” he added, noting Arnprior has never won two straight Valley titles.

Arnprior also receives talented defenseman Blake Lemoine, another Pembroke area player. The playing rights of Farr return to Arnprior at the end of the 2012-13 season. In earlier deals, the Packers traded forward Mitch Parker to the Ottawa Junior Canadians for a 16-year-old card for the 2012-13 season and gained the playing rights of 21-year-old goalie Kyle Lamothe from Casselman for future considerations. Arnprior promised it would not trade the rights of Lamothe back to the St-Lawrence Division. The Packers also picked up Eric Malloy from the Brockville Tikis for future considerations. The Packers were short defenceman after trading the division’s top blueliner Shane Smith and Luke Gagnon to the Ottawa Jr Canadians for future considerations earlier in the summer and losing Jake Primeau to the Quebec league.

Ben Wade had gone to Almonte in January in the first part of the trade. The Packers will likely be facing Gagne, their short-owned goalie who played some games for the Pembroke Lumber Kings last season, in Friday’s opener at 8 p.m. in the Ma-Te-Way rink in Renfrew. The Wolves traded returning goaltender Troy Gauthier, who was trying out for the Lumber Kings, to Almonte Monday after acquiring Gagne from the Packers. Arnprior will try to improve its fortunes against Stittsville Sunday with a 2:30 p.m. game in Goulbourn. The Packers’ home opener is set for Friday, Sept. 21 at 8 p.m., with Almonte Thunder the opposition. After a game in Perth Sunday, Sept. 23, the Packers will host their second home game of the season Friday, Sept. 28 at 8 p.m. when the Ottawa Junior Canadians with Collins, Smith, Parker and Gagnon possibly in their line-up come to town.

World Broomball tournament gets $50,000 boost KATE GLYNN

EMC sports - The 2012 World Broomball Championships that are coming to Arnprior in late October scored $50,000 in government funding last week. In an announcement made at the Nick Smith Centre Sept. 5, RenfrewNipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant told event organizers and host committee members that applications made to the Eastern Ontario Development Corporation were successful. Two separate bids, one to the Renfrew County Futures Development, and one to Valley Heartland Community Futures, each requesting $25,000, were submitted two years ago. In a speech thanking officials and local committee members, Arnprior director of recreation Glen Arthur said “the $50,000 funding will go a long way towards the $250,000 budget.” Arnprior is co-hosting the event with Carleton Place and Almonte and the seed money will be shared in promoting the event. The international competition is expected to bring substantial economic gains to the community. “Approximately $2.1 million to the area in seven days,” Arthur said. In addition to the economic benefit, Arthur pointed to the exposure the event brings to the community. “We are exposing our municipalities to the world-that’s huge.

EMC sports – Cyclist Keith Oattes has struck gold three times in the last three months. The McNab-Braeside resident capped off his summer by winning gold at the Canada 55+ Games in Sydney, Nova Scotia in late August. Earlier in the summer, he won the 55-to-65 age group cyclist race at the Ontario Seniors Games in Brampton for a second straight year. And he captured the Renfrew County Race in Arnprior June 7. Oattes covered the tough wind-blown Cape Breton 22-kilometre course in 43 minutes, edging Jim Vance of Nova Scotia by 1 minute and 18 seconds. The third-place finisher was four minutes and 28 seconds back. The contest was a headto-head race and not a time trial as in some of Oattes’ earlier competitions. His average speed was 30.7 km-hr despite a “wicked” head wind on the course along Bras d’Or Lake. On the 11 kilometres out, the racers were bundled up together, but on the way back

the pack opened up. “It was a great feeling,” he said of his victory. He went into the race having no idea how fast his competitors were, but being a national competition, he expected a serious challenge. Oattes had qualified for the Games with a win in last year’s Ontario Seniors Games. This year’s repeat win in Brampton will allow him to defend his title in the Canadian Games next year in Victoria. He thanked his fellow Arnprior-area riders in the MAFIA (Men Against Fat in Arnprior) cycling group and its leader Harold Camblin for helping to keep him motivated and challenged and MAFIA friend and mechanic Dave ‘Super Dave’ Steeds who keeps his bike roadworthy. “It’s also appreciated to have the support of my employer (Arnprior Aerospace) who was able to spring me free in order to attend the games, at a time when we are incredibly busy,” he added. Oattes notes that he has biked at least 50,000 kilometres (not 5,000 as indicated in an earlier story) with the MAFIA riders in the past 10 years.

Turn porch light green to shine light on disease awareness we create the more funds come in, which means more research we can fund.” Speaking with other families and getting involved with MitoCanada has been beneficial. “Getting in touch with the other families in our area has been great and getting in touch with MitoCanada has really been great,” said Antonakos.

Arnprior family works to raise awareness and research funds for Mitochondrial Disease Sherry Haaima Sherry.haaima@metroland.com

EMC lifestyle – An Arnprior family has a special reason to support a promotion next week of Mitochondrial Disease. Sarah and Jim Antonakos’s son, four-year-old Nicholas, has the little-known disease. A child in Glasgow Station also has the disease. Nicholas is blind, but he does hear and has limited mobility. The ‘Turn Your Porch Light Green’ campaign runs Sept. 16 to 23 during Mitochondrial Disease awareness week. Promoting awareness of the disease is important as it is frequently not recognized or diagnosed. Neil Slater at Home Hardware is supporting the campaign by selling green light bulbs next week for a discounted price of $1 to promote the event. Sarah Antonakos is cochair of two committees for MitoCanada, a registered charity that provides awareness, support and research for mitochondrial disease. Considering it is little known, the disease is relatively common. Every 30 minutes a child who will develop mitochondrial disease is born. For the Arnprior couple, diagnosis came fairly early on. “We knew pretty early on that he was having some medical issues, but we didn’t know until into his first year that it was mitochondrial disease,” said Antonakos. Because it’s a fairly new

disease and difficult to diagnose, there are likely many cases going undiagnosed, said Antonakos. Since having met parents of other children with the disease, it has been underscored to the Antonakos’ that it remains a mysterious illness. “Each person with the disease can present completely differently,” she said. “You could meet someone with the disease and you wouldn’t know. Or they could be completely severe.” It affects both children and adults, explained Antonakos, who is co-chair of the research committee and the public relations and awareness committee for MitoCanada. Getting involved with the organization was a natural move for Antonakos. “I feel I’m doing something purposeful towards helping,” she said. “This is what I can do right now. Not only can Jim and I be there for Nicholas in his daily life, but we feel like we’re helping the cause.” The family is heading to Hamilton this weekend for a walk in support of the organization and a similar event is held in Calgary each year. Team Mito Canada was also involved in the past Ottawa Race Weekend, raising funds for the organization. The events form the main fundraisers for MitoCanada, but the committee felt they could broaden the scope. “We wanted something else that everybody could do. We thought ‘let’s raise awareness with something simple for

With a host of doctors, specialists and therapists involved in Nicholas’ treatment, the schedule and daily life can be daunting. There has been much support from family, friends and the community, say the Antonakos’. Nicholas started junior kindergarten this fall at A.J. Charbonneau and the school has kept up with the support for which the community has been known. What has surprised the family about their journey thus far? “I think what surprised me so far is how happy of a kid he is,” said Antonakos. “He’s happy all the time. He’s easygoing. For everything he’s been through, he takes it in stride.” Nicholas loves the water, his musical toys and especially listening to his grandfather play guitar. “He’ll even strum his fingers along the guitar,” said Antonakos. And Nicholas continues to progress and improve. Just this past summer, he learned to sit up from a laying position, she said. She encourages everyone to get behind the campaign. “So all they you have to do is change your porch light bulb to green for a week and you can make a difference

and get people talking,” said Antonakos. Because of the complexity and challenges of diagnosis and broad spectrum of symptoms, it is estimated that less than 10 per cent of people affected by Mitochondrial Disease receive a diagnosis. The disease robs those affected of their quality of life and is often terminal. To date there is no cure for Mitochondrial Disease, and only minimal treatments are available. Research has determined that Mitochondrial dysfunction is at the core of many common diseases, such as cancer, autism, ALS, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. “Although some people may feel that mitochondrial disorders are rare, it is now clear that they affect at least one in 6,000 individuals and as we learn more about mitochondrial disease this number will undoubtedly increase,” said Dr. Mark Tarnopolsky, division head of Neuromuscular and Neurometabolic Disorders at McMaster Children’s Hospital. “By relative comparison, mitochondrial diseases are vastly under supported and under recognized and yet they touch the lives of far more people in Canada than many other disorders.” MitoCanada is a national registered charity founded in 2010. “MitoCanada is committed to providing awareness, support to families and caregivers and promoting the advancement of Mitochondrial Disease cutting edge research,” said MitoCanada Foundation executive director Vicky Spadoni. “So help us to create awareness of this disease that robs so many children and adults of their quality of life by turning your porch lights green.”

Fjellgaard tour to touch down in Arnprior for a concert Sept. 23

SUBMITTED

The Nova Scotia a cappella quintet will star in a public concert at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in Arnprior Sunday, Sept. 23.

Nova Scotia group to entertain in Arnprior EMC events – Nova Scotia musicians OneBlood will hold a concert in Arnprior Sunday, Sept. 23. The concert will be held at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church at 7:30 p.m. OneBlood is an a cappella quintet consisting of Gregg Ernst and sons Joshua, John, Peter and Elijah. The group hails from Lunenburg. The Ernsts started singing in 2001 with The Ernst Family, which also includes Gregg’s wife Jennie and three more of the family’s 10 children. Together with the rest of the Ernsts, the members of OneBlood have released three CDs; toured the Maritimes, northeastern U.S.,

EMC entertainment - Juno Award winner Gary Fjellgaard is making his way through rural Ontario with a number of concerts scheduled for Ottawa and the Valley, including one in Arnprior Sunday, Sept. 23. The 2 p.m. show, which also features Nova Scotia musician Ryan Cook, is a fundraiser for the Arnprior-Braeside-McNab Seniors at Home program. Fjellgaard is a champion of vanishing values and the frontier spirit. His western heritage, cattle drives, wagon treks and working folks with ties to the land have all been an inspiration for the lyrical imagery in his songs. In 2005 he was inducted into the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame. He still tours extensively and looks back on a rewarding ca-

reer and gratefully acknowledges the hundreds of town and cities and thousands of listeners who have been touched by his music. With his finger style acoustic guitar, gentle vocals and colorful stories, Fjellgaard shares western roots music with his audience. Cook is an award-winning singer/songwriter from Yarmouth. He has been broadcasting songs and stories to varied audiences of roots, folk, and country music since 2007. He blends the nostalgia of classic country with the satire of a modern troubadour. The pair also plays the Denbigh Hall Sept. 15, Athens Sept. 16, Killaloe Sept. 22, Kemptville Sept. 27, Ottawa Sept. 28 and the Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame Awards Show at Centrepointe Theatre, Sept. 29.

and Ontario; and have appeared on national radio and television. Their repertoire comes from a wide variety of traditions, with a typical concert including motets, hymns, spirituals and gospel songs in four- and five-part harmony.

Celebrating fall with a health and wellness fair Liz Wall Seniors At Home

EMC lifestyle - There is so much we can learn just by asking the right person. Arnprior-Braeside-McNab Seniors At Home Program is providing the public with an opportunity to ask, listen and learn straight from the source. Educate yourself while celebrating the first day of fall by attending the program’s inaugural Health & Wellness Fair Saturday, Sept. 22 at the Nick Smith Centre. The Health & Wellness Fair, which will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., is free and will be presented by 30 of the community’s finest professionals, local entrepreneurs, organizations and service clubs. They will showcase their products and services all designed to support a healthy lifestyle. There will be numerous door prizes including an early bird draw and one grand prize. The Arnprior Lionettes will serve homemade goodies. There will be 15-minute presentations by several organizations. The Alzheimer Society of Ottawa and Renfrew County exists to alleviate the personal and social consequences of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias and to promote research. Tracey Liebig will give the presentation. The Arnprior and District Family Health Team includes 13 physicians, two nurse practitioners, a dietician, social worker, registered nurse, respiratory therapist (recruiting currently), psychologist and pharmacist. The team emphasizes prevention and healthy living as much as treating illness. Executive director Maureen Sullivan-Bentz will make the presentation. Arnprior-Braeside-McNab Seniors At Home Program is a non-profit organization assisting and cooperating with other agencies in the administration and delivery of client centered home support services. This encourages independent living and enhances the quality of life for seniors who have attained the age of 60, disabled and those with special needs no matter the

age. Executive director Dennis Harrington, program co-ordinator Patti Jennings and development co-ordinator Liz Wall will give presentations at the health fair. Arnprior Villa by Revera, a residence close to the downtown, is designed to enable residents to maintain independence and privacy and enjoy a full social life. Nursing care services are optional. Executive director Darren Talbot will attend the fair. Bayshore Home Health has been dedicated to enhancing the quality of life, dignity and independence of Canadians in their homes since 1966. Canadian owned and operated, they are the country’s largest provider of home and community health care services, with more than 50 home care offices, 20 community care clinics and 8,000 employees. Connie Robinson of Pembroke will attend the health fair. For 115 years, Carefor Health and Community Services has been keeping families together longer at home by providing home health care and community support services. Sharon Maye will attend the health fair. The Accredited Senior Agent (ASA), launched in Ontario in early 2008, focuses on how a real estate agent can be of best service to the 55-plus market. The agent focuses on counselling, not selling. Jenn Spratt and Donna Defalco will be at the fair. Since 2005 the County of Renfrew Paramedic Service has been providing 24-hour-a-day, seven-day-a-week coverage responding to the emergent and life-threatening medical needs of the community. In consultation with a number of community stakeholders, the Paramedic Service has developed a number of a programs and services, such as an Aging at Home, wellness clinics, Heart Wise, AED/CPR Education and ad-hoc home visits. Deputy chief Michel Ruest will attend the health fair. Curves is the largest fitness franchise in the world with nearly 10,000 locations worldwide. Arnprior Curves owner Linda Davies will make a presentation and Melanie Keen will give a Zumba demonstration.

In spring 2008, a group of health care and business professionals came together with a common vision of bringing a new standard of therapeutic-grade essential oils to the world. d’TERRA (a Latin derivative meaning ‘Gift of the Earth’) products are sold exclusively through independent product consultants. Consultant Cathy Sherlock of Kinburn will make a presentation. Dowsing is an ancient practice used to find water for wells, mineral deposits, oil, buried treasure, archaeological artifacts and even missing people. Glen Vance of Nepean learned the art from his grandfather and great aunt. He says dowsing can be learned by anyone. He will be attending the health fair. Vance will also give a presentation on Spiritual Vortex Therapy, which replaces negative thoughts with positive energies to allow people to heal at their own pace. Gold Canyon is a party-plan candle business offering home fragrance in the form of scented candles, room sprays and sachets and various home décor items. Consultant Terry Yach of Arnprior will attend the health fair. Hospice Renfrew provides end-of-life care to people who are experiencing life-threatening or terminal illness. The small, comfortable, home-like palliative care residence serves individuals and families throughout Renfrew County and the surrounding area, providing 24-hour nursing care, with physician support, at no cost to the patient in an inclusive setting where family and friends can be an integral part of the care. Director Connie Legg will attend the health fair. MENTAL HEALTH TOO

EMC lifestyle - There was no doubt about it, Father needed a new suit. The only one he owned was threadbare, and even though he hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t grown an inch, the cuffs on the legs were above his ankles. No doubt because Mother had tried to wash it one Monday, and now even the sleeves were too short. No, there was no getting around it. He need-

ed a new suit, and the ad in the weekly Renfrew Mercury was just what the doctor ordered! Three pieces for $14! Father said there was no money for such frivolity. Mother said going to the Lutheran Church on Sunday dressed like a tramp, raised the purchase well above frivolity! I knew Mother had waited until the big wood box of hand-me-downs had come from Aunt Lizzie in Regina to make sure there wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be something suitable from Uncle Jack. But, as always, whatever Uncle Jack once wore, had to be severely altered before it would fit Father! Uncle Jack was about Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s height. But there the similarity ended. My sister Audrey said he looked like a pineapple. I have no idea how she knew what a pineapple looked like, because I never knew one to come into the house. But I did know Uncle Jack was more round than long! His arms were huge and hung well below his hips, and it always looked like he was carrying a bag of grain under his jacket. Without altering the suit, you could put at least two of Father in it. Now, Mother, when she moved to the farm out in Northcote, tried her best to master the old pedal Singer Sewing Machine. And she did well on simple things like clothes for Audrey and me, and making aprons, and even simple house dresses out of Dan River cotton, but when it came to trying to make Father fit into one of Uncle Jackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s suits, she failed miserably. It always ended up that the suits, after being taken apart, became jumpers or skirts for my sister and me. The Mercury had come in the middle of the week, and Mother said there was

Mary Cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Memories BY MARY COOK

just about enough money in the blue sugar bowl in the back-to-the-wall cupboard to buy the suit. What was lacking would be made up when Mother pedalled her eggs, butter and chickens on Saturday in Renfrew. And so it was decided, Saturday was the day Father would be getting his new $14 suit. The excitement ran high that week in our old log house in Northcote. That didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean we could ease off on the workload ... chores were done as usual â&#x20AC;Ś morning and night in the barns, and Mother made sure my sister Audrey and I kept up with what was expected of us in the house too. But youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d think we were all getting a new outfit, not just Father, as the day of this major purchase drew closer. Mother took the blue sugar bowl out of the cupboard a few days before we were to head into Renfrew. She dumped the coins out on the kitchen table with a couple crumbled one dollar bills. Then she moved the money over to the top of the ice box, and stacked the coins in little piles on top of the bills. The blue sugar bowl went back into the cupboard. She figured sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have to sell at least four chickens, five or six pounds of butter, and six dozen eggs to make up the difference between what was sitting on the ice-box and what the suit would cost. The day before we were to

head into Renfrew, just before we were to sit down to dinner at noon hour, Father came into the kitchen with a long piece of harness in his hands. He stood silently at the back door, never taking his eyes off it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Broke. Just as I was putting it on Queenie. This is the piece I have fixed at least a dozen times. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m afraid it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take another fixinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;... canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use the team without it.â&#x20AC;? He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to say any more. Mother went to the ice box and slid the coins into her hand with the one-dollar bills. She looked at it for a minute, and then walked over to the door and handed it to Father. It would take just about all of it to replace the worn-out harness that should have been replaced long before. Horses and their harness meant survival back in the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;30s. A farmer couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t farm without either. Nothing more was said about the $14 suit. We went into Renfrew as usual on Saturday for our few supplies, bought only after Mother made her house calls along the back streets of the town with the cleaned chickens, butter and eggs, and that day she had sticky buns as well. It would be a long time before the blue sugar bowl had in it enough for what Father called a frivolity like a new suit. Sunday morning saw him at the Lutheran Church wearing the same old suit he had worn for years.

The Town of Mississippi Mills will be moving forward with several water and sewer reconstruction projects in the Almonte Ward beginning Monday, September 10, 2012. During construction lane closures will be in effect and in some cases street access will be limited to emergency vehicles and local traffic only. On-street parking will also be restricted on these blocks for the full duration of construction. Affected street locations are as follows:

Effective Monday, September 10, 2012, the Town will be lifting the watering ban and the following watering restrictions will continue to apply in accordance with Bylaw 04-41:

White Sauce has unlimited possibilities EMC lifestyle - Of all the millions of recipes that exist in cookbooks, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one which is found more often than any other. It appears in cookbooks published around the world - from Eastern Ontario to France to Australia. You probably have it in at least one of the cookbooks in your kitchen right now. The recipe is for a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Basic White Sauceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s made with three ingredients butter, flour and milk. The recipe that follows is for creamed salmon on toast, a convenient and quick supper dish. It starts with a medium white sauce, and you can use this basic sauce recipe for any other dish that calls for it. The microwave technique for cooking it is explained step-by-step. Creamed Salmon on Toast 2 tbsp. butter or margarine 2 tbsp. flour 2 cups milk 1/2 tsp. butter or margarine 1/2 cup frozen peas

on. To serve, spoon over toast. Use 1 or 2 pieces of toast per person. Serves 4.

1/2 medium onion, chopped 2 cans (213 gm) salmon, drained salt, pepper to taste Use a microwave-safe bowl or a measuring cup that holds 4 cups. In the bowl, melt 2 tbsp. butter or margarine on high for 40 to 50 seconds. Stir in the flour until it forms a smooth paste. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no need to cook this mixture. Add the milk all at once, and stir well. Microwave on high, uncovered, for 4 to 5 minutes. Stir the sauce once every minute, scraping around the bottom of the bowl to mix in all the flour paste. When the sauce is slightly

thickened, cook it 1 to 2 minutes longer on high. This time, stir the sauce every 30 seconds to prevent lumps from forming and the sauce from boiling over. The sauce is done when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thickened and bubbly. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to use the sauce for another dish, stop reading now. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re making creamed salmon on toast, place the 1/2 tsp. butter, frozen peas and onion in a small microwavesafe dish. Cover and cook on high for 2 minutes. Stir the onion mixture and the salmon into the white sauce. Cook on high for 1 to 2 minutes longer, stirring every 30 seconds, to heat the salm-

Squares begin new year of dancing with open house, chili supper EMC entertainment - The Mississippi Squares are inviting the public to modern square dancing introductory events they are holding this month. The Squares are the only beginners club to service the area from Arnprior to Kanata and Carp to Smith Falls. The club held a free square dance lesson on Tuesday at the Brunton Hall just south of Carleton Place and are following up with a free chili supper and open house on Tuesday, Sept. 18 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the same location. Joining the club would expand your social

circle, say members. Come alone or in pairs. Make new friends and take your dancing skills on the road, as there are clubs all across Canada and the U.S., they add. The local club is 26 years old and members travel to other clubs near and far. In 2014 all the Ottawa area clubs will be hosting an international event, and local square dancers are looking forward to making new friends. So a new set of travel plans are being hatched. The square dance calls are always in English, be it in Singapore, France, Portugal or Quebec. Challenge your mind. It is easy to learn the

new moves. Practice while you dance to your favourite music,â&#x20AC;? says a Mississippi Squares news release. After a stressful day at work or on the golf course, come to a club session to relax, play, dance and learn a new call or two. In no time, new dancers are experts at following directions and in having a good time. A mistake is another reason to smile. Improve your health. To dance is to walk. Modern square dancing is easy and it improves your stamina. The use of large body muscles in a gentle manner is similar to walking burns calories and lubricates many joints. Respect

for your aches and pains should not stop you from having fun. Help your community. Mississippi Squares hold parties and raise money to help the local Food Bank and Interval House. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We appreciate everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s help to be a part of the many communities where we call home,â&#x20AC;? says the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s director of publicity and promotion Laurette Lafleur. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Modern square dancing is based on tradition to encourage a healthy and happy future. Fun, friendship, fitness â&#x20AC;&#x201C; we would love to dance with you.â&#x20AC;? Call 613-253-2960 or visit www.mississippisquares.ca for more info.

Thank You from the Paiges You know, if Danny was writing this he’d have all your names, perfectly spelled, in alphabetical and/or chronological order (in two columns with explanatory footnotes) in the most expressive graphic layout and the best fonts.

Saying “Thank You!” (yes, Danny, we know that’s not a sentence!) All of your care is very important to us and has made such a difference. Thank you.

HOLBEIN, William Alexander “Sandy”

The moment that you died, Our hearts split in two, The one side filled with memories, The other died with you. We often lay awake at night, When the world is fast asleep, And take a walk down memory lane, With tears upon our cheeks. Remembering you is easy, We do it everyday. But missing you is a heartache, That never goes away. We hold you tightly within our hearts, And there you will remain. Life has gone on without you, But it will never be the same. For those who still have their husbands and dads, Treat him with tender care, you will never know the emptiness, As when you turn and he is not there.

IN MEMORIAM

In loving memory of Pete McParland who passed away Sept 13, 1982 There are some we meet in passing, And forget as soon as they go. There are some we remember with pleasure, And feel honoured and privileged to know. You were that kind of person, Who leaves beautiful memories behind, And there will be many days, Which will bring fond memories to mind.

In loving memory of Dave Rancourt March 15, 1971 – September 16, 2011 It’s hard to believe, a year has past, We can’t describe how much we miss you. You were not just a friend, but part of our family. We had many great times and some crazy adventures, Life has not been the same without you. So until we meet again, Your memory will be forever in our hearts.

He never looked for praises He was never one to boast He just went on working For those he loved the most His dreams were seldom spoken His wants were very few And most of the time his worries Went unspoken too He was there.... A firm foundation Through all our storms of life A sturdy hand to hold to In times of stress and strife A true friend we could turn to When times were good or bad One of our greatest blessings The man that we called Dad

Devotion to his family, a world of patience too, he always spoke a gentle word and that’s why we all miss you.

DONOHUE, Cecelia Mary Anysia (nee Jeffrey) (Organist at St. James the Less Church for 8 years and at Our Lady of Fatima Church for 15 years. Longtime CWL member at Our Lady of Fatima Church )

I have only just lost you, the pain is hard to bear, do I have to go through life knowing you’re not there, please someone explain to me why he had to go, are there any reasons I really need to know, I sit here and remember all the lovely times we shared, the talks, the laughter of everyone you cared, I am told the pain will ease in time, and I will think of him without a tear, but that will be impossible as I need to have him here, he was my very world to me, my ever guiding star, just kiss me softly on the cheek and tell me where you are.

We thought of you With love today But that is nothing new. We thought about you Yesterday and days Before that too. We think of you in Silence, we often speak Your name. All we have are memories and your picture In a frame. Your memory is our keepsake With which we’ll never part. God has you in His keeping We have your in our hearts We love you and miss you.

What a better way to organize your fall and winter by coming in and registering for all our youth programs that interest you. What do we have to offer this year? Keep an eye out for the program ďŹ&#x201A;yer to be going home to all students in Grades 4-8 through the schools in the next couple of weeks, and for those students in high school, we will be having posters and information in the schools for you too. Grade 9s will receive our high school ďŹ&#x201A;yer when we come in with their passes. Speaking of passes, thanks to the Arnprior Optimist Club, we will be having the Grade 5 and Grade 9 Community Access Passes and the Family Access Pass again this year. More information will follow in future articles and information will be sent home next week to all students with their passes. If you havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had a chance to

Players will be coming out and showing all registered youth how to play the sport. No equipment is necessary as they will be supplying everything. Although this is a free program, you do have to register at the Nick Smith Centre no later than Friday, Sept 23. Open to ages 9-17, come on out.

ADHS grad has time of her life at event in Ireland Avaleigh Eastman of Kinburn shines at the Rose of Tralee International Festival Theresa.fritz@metroland.com

EMC events – The bloom hasn’t come off Avaleigh Eastman’s rose, even though she didn’t win an international competition in Ireland recently. The Kinburn native and graduate of Arnprior District High School recently returned from Tralee in County Kerry where she took part in the Rose of Tralee International Festival from Aug. 17-21. Her road to the ‘Emerald Isle’ began in March when she captured the title of Ottawa Rose and then was selected a finalist in a competition in Portlaoise, Ireland back in June. She was one of two Canadian Roses to make the trip to Tralee. “It is very hard to put words to it (the experience). It was very incredible,” she said. “The people there are very supportive.” As one of Ireland’s largest and longest running festivals, the Rose of Tralee International Festival was initially conceived as a way to bring Irish descendants back to Ireland, as well as a means of boosting the local economy and regenerating the Town of Tralee. It has since expanded to include centres from across the globe including Ottawa, which selected its first ‘Rose’ in 2009. The festival derived its name from a 19th century love story written by William Mulchinock, a 19th century merchant, for Mary O’Connor. The song includes the lyrics, “lovely and fair as the rose of summer, it was not her beauty alone that won me, oh no, ‘twas the truth in her eyes ever dawning.” The event, covered in all the Irish daily newspapers including a large photo spread featuring Eastman and other Roses in the Irish Daily Mail, is a national event. The finals were a two-night extravaganza carried on live television.

“It is a huge there. It really hit home when we stopped at a place and everyone knew what the Rose of Tralee was,” Eastman recalled. The Roses are considered ambassadors for not only the countries they represent but their Irish heritage. The winner of this year’s festival, a 26-year-old teacher named Nicola McEvoy representing Luxembourg, is a native of Ireland who now teaches in that country. Eastman said part of the thrill of the experience was the way the Roses were able to spend so much time together leading up to the big event. Before the festival began, all the young women went to Dublin and then made their way to Tralee. “We visited different places along the way in a coach bus,” she recalled, noting stops included visits to seniors’ homes, the Guinness factory, a children’s hospital and Croke Park Stadium in Dublin - home of Gaelic games and the headquarters of the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA). On the visit to Croke Park, Eastman and the other Roses received their certificate of Irish heritage. “It was very cool to visit so many attractions,” Eastman admitted. But she says the pace the Roses kept during their time in Ireland was quick. They were always dressed up and fully made up. “It was like going to two weddings every day,” she explained. Particularly fun for her was the fact that one day when she got off the bus, she heard someone yelling “Ottawa” and telling her they had bet on her. Betting on who will become the Rose of Tralee is big in Ireland, although the Roses themselves are not fully aware of the extent. “My odds were 50-1 at one point and then after I was on television, I heard my odds for CLUES ACROSS 1.

Avaleigh Eastman enjoyed her time in Ireland recently as the Ottawa Rose in the Rose of the Tralee International Festival. The Kinburn native made many friends and saw many sights during her time on the ‘Emerald Isle’. 10-1,” she said with a laugh. During the live portion of the broadcast, Eastman was scheduled to show off her agricultural background by milking a cow. Raised on the Centuryholm dairy farm in Kinburn, she has a passion for agriculture. She was an avid member of the 4-H Community Club, completing projects in field 45. Initialism 49.

crops, showing dairy calves and scrapbooking, and attending numerous leadership conferences. She represented the Ottawa-Carleton Plowmen’s Association in 2010 as Queen of the Furrow and continues to volunteer with the organization as a director and webmaster. As a summer student with the City of Ottawa Rural Affairs Department, Eastman enjoyed participating in Food Aid Celebrity Milking Contest. “I don’t dance and I don’t sing but I can milk a cow,” she chuckled. As she went out on stage, she noticed a milking stool and bucket in the wings but the cow, Daisy, was a bit nervous and event organizers decided against the demonstration. Eastman is not disappointed she did not win the overall title because she won in so many other ways. “The experience alone was incredible. Just being mentioned as the Ottawa Rose was amazing,” she said. She also made friendships that will last a lifetime and opened up the world to her in a way she could not have imagined. “I now know people around the world,” she said. “We are all like-minded girls and all goal-oriented.” But perhaps the greatest victory for Eastman is the reconnection with her Irish heritage. “I’ve always wanted to go to Ireland. Just going back, it felt like home,” she noted. Eastman holds a degree in Social Science, Public Administration & Business and works for the Dairy Farmers of Canada as co-ordinator of government relations, and also works part-time on the family farm. “It all happened so quickly. It (Rose of Tralee experience) is something I want to promote to girls in this area,” she concluded, adding there are international reunions in Ireland every 10 years so she is looking forward to going back to Ireland in 2022, if not before.
