EMC news – Arnprior’s downtown should be a place where people want to hang out and enjoy, not just a place to shop. That was one of several comments made at a lively session recently to discuss the town’s StreetscapeLandscape design plan. Town officials and councilors listened intently as Jonathan Loschmann of MMM Group consultants guided about 30 people through a public consultation process. Loschmann said any plan should enhance the deteriorating streetscape downtown, while respecting the area’s heritage. While most people were in favour of broader sidewalks, more planters and benches and better lighting downtown, others cautioned that changes could make such services as snow removal, garbage pick-up and deliveries more difficult and expensive. Mayor David Reid agreed there should be a balance between beautification and keeping maintenance costs in check. When it was suggested there should be bicycle lanes downtown, the general response was that if there was extra space it should go toward enhancing sidewalks for pedestrians not for bicyclists.

Many Ottawa Valley residents don’t understand the relevance of the County of Renfrew and its one-third slice of their annual tax bill. Arnprior Reeve Walter Stack welcomed county councillors, and other visitors, to the county council meeting Sept. 26 in Arnprior, before addressing that very issue. Stack noted he was speaking in the absence of Arnprior Mayor Dave Reid, who was in England visiting his son. Stack also acknowledged the presence of fellow Arnprior councillors and staff members, a few local residents, and his wife Barb and granddaughter Tessa Grace. He then changed course to talk about the County of Ren-

frew’s relevance to Arnprior. “When I first got involved politically in Arnprior,� admitted Stack, “I heard a lot of comments made about the County and how it operated. Most or all were negative and critical. This was the key issue that prompted me to run for the position of reeve, as I doubted what I heard, but thought the best way to understand what was happening was the get involved at that level and learn the facts.� Observing that some local council members were prone to criticize the County for what it did and didn’t do for Arnprior, he provided some financial figures, including the fact the Town of Arnprior pays about $600,000 of the county’s $3.1 million in taxes. See ROAD WORK, Page 5

Olympian visits, local qualifies EMC news - Valley Olympian Melissa Bishop brought her school tour to Arnprior District High School last week to bring her inspirational message to local student.

Amount of input pleases council Sherry Haaima Sherry.haaima@metroland.com

This type of sign drew plenty praise from people attending the streetscape session Sept. 17.

Make downtown ‘place to be’ Continued from front

John and Elgin streets are wide enough already to accommodate bicycles safely, noted one merchant, adding that bicycles should be sharing space with cars, not pedestrians. Coun. Lynn Grinstead, whose committee is guiding the streetscape process, said bike racks are being considered to make the downtown more welcoming to bicyclists. Tara Pocket said there should be more larger permanent flower boxes on John Street. Others suggested more shade trees, benches and even a grassy “doggy area.” Travis MacLeod argued that as it was difficult for downtown merchants to compete against the big box stores, they should be pushing to make the downtown an enjoyable and vibrant place to be. “It should be a place where people go both to shop and hang out,” he said, suggesting there should be more entertainment and attractions. “We need to create an atmosphere that people will want to come to enjoy … we want people to stay longer.” Grinstead said the town square by the library will help in that matter. After the meeting, she said she was pleased with the turnout and the many “thought-provoking” comments made. “There were no red flags,” just a few concerns, she added. She said she agreed that the plan must balance beauty and functionality and not be too costly for taxpayers. The consultants are expected to make preliminary design recommendations to council at its Oct. 22 meeting. Further public input will then be solicited. Loschmann urged the public to fill out the streetscape survey that is available online or at town hall. About 80 responses have been received so far, with heritage and more trees and vegetation being important themes, he said.

EMC news - The high turnout rate at a recent public meeting to discuss the Town of Arnprior’s strategic plan speaks to how much people care about their community, say officials. “It shows how much you care about the Town of Arnprior,” said Mayor David Reid in his opening remarks to more than 50 people gathered recently at the Nick Smith Centre for the meeting. The aim, said Reid, is to find a clear vision for the town and to set clear, attainable goals for the future of Arnprior. Reid explained the last strategic plan exercise was done in 2003 and since then micro level planning has taken place in the various town departments. The time has come to bring those plans together and align them with the priorities of the community to come up with an updated official plan, he said. “We want to hear what is important to residents and staff,” he said. The planning will help make decisions about where resources go and how investments are made. Results of a meeting with senior staff and a meeting of council to discuss the plan will be put together and come before council in about eight weeks. “It’s a bit of a turbo focus group,” said facilitator Erik Lockhart of Queen’s University. “And a very interactive process.” Those in attendance were seated in groups at tables that contained laptop computers. Notes and ideas were typed into the computers and were instantly visible for all those in attendance. SUGGESTIONS

Among the suggestions brought forward for the future: job growth, improve existing recreation facilities, improve roads and infrastructure, downtown merchants working together, efficient commuter transportation options to Ottawa, improve shopping, create a welcoming environment, cultural activities, and encourage downtown development. The public session was one of three in a process approved by

Drought-related concerns remain, say county councillors Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com EMC news - If Renfrew County residents think water levels are returning to normal, think again. So said Admaston-Bromley Mayor RayeAnne Briscoe, while waving a caution flag dur-

ing the Sept. 26 session of county council. The session was held in Arnprior’s Nick Smith Centre, to acknowledge the town’s 150th-anniversary celebrations this year. But Briscoe said there’s little reason to celebrate more recent rainfall, following a virtual rainfree summer. Briscoe pointed out that even the most re-

cent rain, Sept. 18, was just six millimetres on the Briscoe farm’s water gauge, or three-tenths of an inch of water. Furthermore, Briscoe and McNab-Braeside Mayor Mary Campbell said if there are sparse levels of snow as predicted in the winter of 2012-13, it will be further cause for concern, since water levels on the Ottawa River, Bonnechere River and other local waterways remain well below normal “We get 80 per cent of our groundwater from snow melt,” Briscoe told county council, after hearing predictions of a sparse snowfall this coming winter. “If we don’t get snow melt … we’ll be in significant, significant distress.” Briscoe said her comments were triggered, in part, by an understated drought summary in the Sept. 26 agenda’s development and property committee report. That one-paragraph summary referred to how farmers continue to feel the effects of the drought, then said: “The federal government has declared portions of Ontario and Quebec as drought-stricken, and this brings into force a federal tax deferral program which enables livestock producers to sell their livestock and defer paying the income tax on the receipts of such sales, which are being made under drought duress.” Unfortunately, said Briscoe, it’s easy to make it a rural or agricultural issue, but it’s very much an urban issue, too.

Any announcement that the county has jumped to a Level 3 drought would have a catastrophic impact on such industries as construction and ski hills, since they wouldn’t be guaranteed water for their operations, she said. The water levels in the area are a big concern because it’s not just farmers, but many non-farmers with wells, who are feeling the pinch, said North Algona Wilberforce Mayor

Harold Weckworth. Briscoe said more than a dozen residents in Admaston-Bromley are having new wells drilled. She estimates the number across the county at 60 or more. “We need to understand that there’s a lack of recharge in our water systems,” said Briscoe, citing the example of the Ottawa River, which is fed by local rivers and yet is still at 40 per cent of its lowest levels. The Bonnechere River is even worse off, at 20 per cent. A Level 2 drought remains in the area, but if it becomes Level 3, construction projects across the county, and other water-related activities, will grind to a standstill, say county officials. “We’re not out of the woods by a long, long way,” said Warden Bob Sweet. “It’s absolutely crucial that we continue to press this issue. If we go to a Level 3 situation … the first priority is potable water. The second priority is a need for water for livestock. After that it’s all up to the MoE (Ministry of the Environment). Construction and cement work that requires water permits, if we get to that level … cease. “We have to keep our finger on the pulse of the situation,” added the warden. Meanwhile, Briscoe says citizens who are negatively affected by the drought should fill out the low-water questionnaires that will be forwarded to the Ministry of Natural Resources. The questionnaire is available at some municipalities, or visit www.admastonbromley.ca for a copy. Briscoe says farmers with crop insurance will be compensated for losses incurred during the drought. However, she says the questionnaire helps to document for the province the extent of damages for non-farmers in both urban and rural municipalities. Meanwhile, Briscoe and other county officials urge residents to continue to conserve water when they can.

Renfrew County council’s monthly meetings typically happen in the county chambers at 9 International Drive, Pembroke, but not last month. September’s meeting took place in Arnprior’s Nick Smith Centre, in recognition of the town’s 150th anniversary celebrations this year. On special occasions, the meetings have been held elsewhere, at Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd., in Deep River, Bonnechere Manor in Renfrew and Canadian Forces Base Petawawa. Participants in Arnprior’s Sept. 26 meeting included CAO Jim Hutton, treasurer Jim Kutschke and, in the background, Warden Bob Sweet.

The Sept. 26 country council meeting will be among events chronicled in that capsule.

He also summarized the benefits accrued by Arnprior in the areas of infrastructure, traffic lights and crosswalks, future projects, emergency services, social housing and county employees. He noted Arnprior is occupied by 12 kilometres of county roads and that the county paid about $300,000 for each of the traffic lights and pedestrian crosswalks. He also said there are several road projects that have recently come, or are soon coming, to Arnprior, such as the resurfacing of Division Street and Baskin Drive for $535,000; rehabilitation of Madawaska Bridge for $2.8 million; and $390,000 (shared with McNab-Braeside) to resurface White Lake Road. Over the next five or six years, Stack indicated the county will contribute more than $4 million to county infrastructure within Arnprior. The County is also busy on the social-housing front, said Stack. He indicated that the Renfrew County Housing Corporation’s holdings include 258 geared-to-income units in Arnprior, while subsidized-housing money goes to private-sector landlords. He also spoke proudly of the 19 new rentcontrolled apartments being built in Arnprior. with the help of $2.2 million of government money being funneled through the county. This is part of Ontario’s affordable housing program. Regarding county employees, he listed the several staff members who work out of Arnprior, in affordable housing, Ontario Works, the child care division, health and emergency services, planning services, and property and development. Stack, who chairs the county’s operations committee, noted the County of Renfrew’s annual operating budget is about $100 million, with a staff of about 700. “In my working experience, I have been responsible for operations of similar size, and it has been a pleasure for me to work with one of the most professional, committed teams I have been exposed to …” said Stack, noting the team is headed by CAO Jim Hutton and his senior directors. “I am confident to report to the ratepayers of Arnprior and across the county that not only is your money well invested,” said the Arnprior reeve,

Big savings for county with Arnprior’s new social services building Steve Newman Steve.newman@metroland.com

EMC news - Little more than an hour after the sodturning ceremony for the new social services building in Arnprior last Wednesday, Wendy Brawley was providing county council with an architectural overview of the facility. The architect with Barry J. Hobin & Associates Architects Inc. spoke at the Sept. 26 county council meeting in Arnprior’s nearby Nick Smith Centre. The building is expected to be operational some time between January and May of 2013. At 5,600-square-feet, the new facility will be significantly bigger than the current building at 100 Madawaska

St., Arnprior where the county’s Child Care, Ontario Works and Renfrew County Housing Corporation’s Arnprior offices occupy 3,400-square-feet. But the big saving will be in rent and overall costs for the County of Renfrew. At the social services building on Madawaska Street, the county is paying $76,500 in rent per year. At 80 McGonigal St., the child care, social housing and Ontario Works components of the building will pay more nominal rent over the next several years to pay off the county’s 15- to 20-year debenture. The $390,000 purchase of the McGonigal Street property, $50,000 for incidentals, and $1.16 million retrofit job by M. Sullivan & Son (and subcontractors), will come with a

strong environmental sticker. Accessibility standards are well beyond national codes, while the building will be 36 per cent more efficient than model national energy codes, said Brawley. In the face of new building codes in the province, the building has also undergone “seismic upgrades,” said Brawley. That was done, in part, by demolishing two large walls, one at the front and one to the side, before rebuilding them with improved reinforcement and insulation. “Now buildings in Ontario are the most energy-efficient in North America,” said Brawley. “So by removing these walls and building up from the existing foundation, we’re able to provide the additional insulation and R values. So, from an operational cost it will be much less for heating and utility costs. “The building, when we started working with it, was almost an empty palate,” said Brawley. “It was two large spaces, so it was quite easy to see that space being fit up with smaller offices, meeting rooms, interview rooms. “Having worked on Renfrew County Place (the former Canadian Tire building in Renfrew) … we knew from that experience opportunities we wanted to replicate, and perhaps some items we wanted to change,” she said of the

Upon entering the Arnprior building, clients will basically move to the left for Ontario Works and to the right for housing and child-care business. Compared to the current building on Madawaska Street, Brawley said this division promotes improved confidentiality for clients. There will also be the potential between the two sides of the building for four interview rooms accessible by staff from their own offices. And window placements are higher, to facilitate privacy.

There will also be a board room that could be used for larger County of Renfrew committee meetings. Construction will also evolve after at least three tenders are received for the retrofit’s various components, including drywall, roofing and mechanical, said Brawley. Asked what he likes best about the new social services building, Renfrew County social services director Dave Anderson replied, “Location, location, location.” After being vacant for about a year, the former Valley Catering building was purchased by the county with the knowledge the facility was near downtown and close to such facilities as the ambulance station,

town hall, and a $2.2-million senior housing project that’s under construction. “Social services has a huge presence in Arnprior, and Arnprior is a growing community,” said Anderson. Recently-completed projects by Ottawa-based Barry J. Hobin & Associates include Ottawa’s James Bartleman Archives and Library Materials Centre, Centrepointe Studio Theatre and the new Ottawa Humane Society building. Hobin & Associates’ projects underway include St. Patrick’s Home of Ottawa longterm care facility, Springcress properties of the Westboro United Church, and the Salvation Army’s Bethany Hope Centre.

M-B official plan OMB appeals are resolved EMC news - County of Renfrew senior planner Bruce Howarth breathed a sigh of relief last week following the speedy conclusion of an Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) hearing. The resolutions of nine appeals relating to the McNab-Braeside Official Plan reached prior to the start of the proceedings at the McNab-Braeside township office Sept. 26 are the result of more than two years work. Appeals launched against the McNab-Braeside’s official plan in 2010 included three from the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing (MMAH). The provincial ministry was concerned a comprehensive re-zoning bylaw approved by council in 2010 was inconsistent with the municipality’s official plan approved earlier. “These

In his presentation to OMB member representative Mary Anne Sills, Howarth testified that he was satisfied with engineering reports supplied by the appellants and was prepared to accept their findings and reduce hazard zones. As a result of his work, Howarth said, “Mapping has been vastly improved. Oldhand drawn Mylars have been updated and converted to a digital format ensuring accuracy and once added to the municipality’s website will be easier to access. “It has taken three years to pass a zoning bylaw,� he said. “It is a big piece of work completed and now it is in effect.

Concerns included environmental protection zoning, flood plan mapping and the designation of aggregate zones based on information the municipality had undertaken in conjunction with the Ministry of Natural Resources. After protests by some residents about the size of environmental protection designated areas on their properties, the past council had reverted to previous mapping to determine the EP zones. That prompted a new set of appeals, including ones from the ministry. Working closely with Ministry of Natural Resources and Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing, Howarth conducted a series of site visits on the contentious properties and revised 11 maps.

OPINION EDITORIAL

Help our volunteers mark Breast Cancer Awareness Month October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation is encouraging people to support women and their loves ones who have been impacted by the disease. A news release this week from the foundation noted that over this past weekend, more than 62,000 kicked off Breast Cancer Awareness Month at the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure, raising more than $13.1 million in Ontario towards new and innovative research. In this area, a dedicated group of women calling themselves the Goshen Road Runners

braved wet and wind Sunday to run along the backroads of McNab-Braeside and Horton to raise money for the cause. Similar events are being held across the province this month, and people are encouraging to participate in and support these endeavours. Walks and runs have become a staple of the fundraising scene and they serve multiple purpose – not only raising money for worthy causes and generating awareness, but actually improving the health of the participants through healthy exercise and fostering camaraderie. The Breast Cancer Awareness Foundation

announced the Pink Tour bus is also making stops across Ontario, giving communities the opportunity to join in and get the facts about the importance of breast cancer screening. To date, over 32,000 people have been on board, including a number in Arnprior last year, and pledged their support by signing the bus. The foundation news release said October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month provides an opportunity not only to support women impacted by the disease, but also to celebrate the advancements made. Over the past 25 years, mortality rates for

breast cancer have declined by 40 per cent due to advancements in screening, diagnosis and treatment. The foundation’s investments in research continue to make strides in the areas of breast cancer prevention, earlier detection, treatment and patient care. Locally people can celebrate those advancements and support a good cause at the Arnprior Breast Cancer Support Group’s delightful fall dinner coming up on Tuesday, Oct. 23 at St. John Chrysostom Parish Hall. The quality of the food is excellent, only surpassed by the wonderful company diners are fortunate to enjoy year after year.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Barbara Ann Scott: a personal recollection of the figure skater To the Editor: The media has given Barbara Ann Scott, Canada’s greatest figure skating champion, due homage in their obituary coverage of her recent passing. Diminutive in her physical bearing, she was a giant amongst us in every other way. Well sort of a giant in every other way! She was a human being like the rest of us. Let me explain. I knew Barbara Ann Scott on a personal level. I lived in the east end of Ottawa as did she. From 1940 to 1947 I resided on Wurtemburg Street near MacDonald Park. Barbara Ann lived in the same area but south of Rideau St. Later, from 1947 to 1950, I lived on Mann Avenue just to the west of Strathcona Park. Barbara Ann Scott frequented these areas as did many of us. It was a beautiful area to loll about at times, and at other times became the venues for our many fantasy adventures. While I was a different character from week to week (some say I am still a character), my character roles tended to reflect heroes I saw in the local movie theaters. Barbara Ann, however, was experiencing her own fantasy adventure, because I recall seeing

her swirling, pivoting, leaping around etc. on her side of the park. She was sometimes with friends, or like me, was often playing alone. I once asked her who she was pretending to be and she answered: “I am just being myself. I am a figure skater.� Of course, I had no idea about her dreams and goals. Figure skating didn’t resonate with me at the age of four or five. Later, as mentioned, when I lived on Mann Avenue, I regularly saw Barbara Ann walking west towards the Minto Skating Club. She remembered who I was by first name, and who I sometimes pretended to be. While I never grew up to be a cowboy, sheik or Apache warrior, she, on the other hand, grew up to be a world Olympic champion. In doing so, and beyond that pinnacle she never lost sight of her roots, or the people she met on the ‘way up’. I just might have been ‘one of em’. Barbara Ann Scott didn’t have to pretend to be anything than what she was. A great human being and a childhood companion. Thomas Charbonneau (aka Hopalong Cassidy) Arnprior

Right to one’s own opinion, not others To the editor: Re: Not being mindful of reality, by H. Wm. Tuck, Aug. 30 (Chronicle-Guide EMC). Mr. Tuck calls Mr. Parchelo’s previous letter “quite insulting to our MP and other residents.� He subsequently, and insultingly, accuses Mr. Parchelo of “delusional teenage drama.� Then, Mr. Tuck insults the Canadian public by telling us what we are aware of and

claiming to know the thoughts and opinions of millions of us. In particular, he claims that many of us believe as he does. I’d like to see the proof of that. As if these insults were not enough, he implies that his personal tastes in music and literature are superior, and proposes that we taxpayers should fund what he likes and nothing else. Mr. Tuck has a right to his

own opinion. He does not have the right to tell the rest of us ours. He does not have the right to demand funding for his own preferences while denying funding to those who prefer something else. And he certainly has no right to complain that others speak insultingly when his own letter is riddled with insulting remarks. Michel Gregoire Renfrew

Web Poll Poll Results

THIS WEEK’S QUESTION

A recent poll showed the NDP running neckand-neck with the PCs in Ontario, with the Liberals slumping to third. How does that make you feel?

A recent survey indicates 92 per cent of Canadians over 12 are happy with their lives. Does this make sense?

A) Yikes. Scares the hell out of me. The last thing we need is the socialists taking over. Remember Rae Days.

B)

Hurray. It’s about time voters gave the NDP a chance. The two old-line parties have outworn their welcome.

90%

C) It’s just a mid-term glitch. Ontario’s too Conservative to vote in an NDP government. They won’t be lulled into a repeat of 1990.

5%

D) People need to forget about the traditional parties and give the Greens a chance to revolutionize politics in 0% this province and country.

A) Why not. Canada is one of the most prosperous and beautiful countries in the world. Count your blessings this Thanksgiving.

B) It shows how naive most Canadians are. Government and personal debt are driving this country closer and closer to economic disaster.

C)

Sure there are plenty of problems, but nothing good old Canadian resolve can’t overcome. Be happy, be confident of the future.

D)

Most of us may be happy now, but our wasteful environmental and economic policies don’t bode well for generations to come.

Running for breast cancer awareness The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run For The Cure is Canada’s largest single day volunteer fundraising event for research, education and awareness. Last year, 170,000 Canadians raised more than $30 million in the CIBC Run For The Cure. This year, another $30-plus million was raised in runs Sunday, including a large one in Ottawa. The Goshen Road Runners led by Jayne Styles didn’t go to Ottawa, but organized a run for this area on the same day. It turned out to be a rainy morning, but the weather did not deter a small group of participants from coming out to support the cause. The five-kilometre course included Goshen and Yantha roads. From left are Joseph Federer, Pat McGregor, Styles, Faye Warren, Colleen Berry and Bonnie McIntyre. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, which means the Arnprior Breast Cancer Support Group’s much anticipated supper is not too far away. This year’s turkey and beef buffet feast at the St. John Chrysostom Parish Hall will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 23, from 4 to 7 p.m.

Protecting environment made too hard Ontario Environmental Commissioner

EMC lifestyle - There are some positive developments to report in this part two of our annual report to the Legislature. We have some improvements in fisheries management and MNR has even discovered in Algonquin Park a surviving population of a species of fish thought extinct. Fire management in parks has a better plan. With some caveats I acknowledge that there are somewhat better wind turbine rules to protect birds and bats and the MTO’s new transit-supportive planning guidelines are an improvement. However, after those points are listed, my ability to praise government accomplishments in the environmental field gets a bit limited. In this reporting period we saw no bold new legislation to tackle the challenges of our time. The business of government went on a more modest scale, but it could

hardly be said to go well. This report is full of examples of stumbles and retreats in the implementation of programs and initiatives that were seemingly well conceived and used to work acceptably. In part one of this report, previously tabled, I documented the failures of various ministries to meet their statutory process obligations under the Environmental Bill of Rights, 1993. And, here in part two, I report to the Legislature on the strange changes to the Ontario Wildlife Damage Compensation Program, which seems to anticipate the farming of our wild birds and animals. I am at a loss to explain the reasoning behind the “bait and switch” approach used when the Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) posted a proposal to give farmers relief from restrictions on haying related to Eastern Meadowlark, and then issued a decision that gave residential developers a broad exemption from restrictions in the Endangered Species Act, 2007 relating to both the meadowlark and the bobolink. Neither do I understand how MNR can

completely fail to implement something as critical as the Provincial Wildlife Monitoring Program. Or, similarly, I question how the Ministry of the Environment can confirm to people they are being adversely affected by industrial dust emissions and then allow the problem to persist for years. Yet again, the government has tinkered with the Low Water Response Plan, but we remain without the timely ability to respond to increasingly frequent droughts, which threaten our aquatic ecosystems, water supplies and food crops. The business of protecting our environment and natural resources used to be a much more routine process that largely ran smoothly. I don’t know why even seemingly simple policy and program delivery has so many associated problems. I have identified the lack of resource capacity in key ministries in the past as at least part of the problem, but the current foibles, fumbles and retreats point to problems beyond capacity constraints. Perhaps we are just losing our touch.

Speak up if you suspect child abuse Arijana Tomicic Family and Children’s Services

EMC lifestyle - Many people struggle with the decision to report child abuse. They don’t know when to call, or they worry about what might happen if they do. But putting off a call to Family and Children Services of Renfrew County can have real and tragic consequences for the child and family. Children who have been abused are often unable to speak up to protect themselves. Abuse can affect children’s selfesteem and trust in adults, which decreases their ability to ask for help. Unless a caring member of the community reaches out, abuse and neglect can continue for years.

Ontario Association of Children’s Aid Societies conducted a study of child abuse reporting in Ontario. The study found that while 85 per cent of Ontarians would report child abuse they had personally witnessed, only 46 per cent would report suspected child abuse. In October, which is Child Abuse Prevention Month, Family and Children Services of Renfrew County will be hosting several information booths throughout the county, as part of Purple Ribbon Campaign to remind people in Renfrew County that they have a responsibility to report both witnessed and suspected child abuse and neglect. Child abuse and neglect occur in large cities, small towns, and rural areas, in families of all incomes, ethnicities, and religions.

It is generally categorized in one of four ways: physical abuse, emotional abuse, sexual abuse, or neglect. These kinds of abuse can occur separately or together, or may include one event or a pattern of behaviour. It isn’t the public’s job to figure out if what is happening is abuse or not. Social workers are trained to assess these situations, so it’s important for people to report suspected child abuse as well as child abuse that they’ve personally witnessed. Abused children need a voice - give them one. Please report any signs of possible abuse, including neglect, to Family and Children Services of Renfrew County.

NATURE

The unusual lives and activities of stinging insects

Michael Runtz Nature’s Way

MICHAEL RUNTZ

A hornet removes larva from the hive. ground, hornets build theirs aboveground. Aerial Yellowjackets also hang their hives from trees and buildings, but these insects are yellow and black, not black and white. A hive consists of a paper exterior fabricated from masticated wood. The interior houses chandelier-like layers of combs, each layer larger and containing more cells (that hold eggs and larvae) than the one above. A hive is a one-year wonder, never used again in future years. The hive’s use relates to the unusual life history of its

makers. In spring, a mated queen that survived the winter initiates a colony. She creates a small hive that contains only a few cells. One egg, fertilized with sperm stored overwinter, is laid in each cell and the ensuing larvae are fed by the queen. When these mature, they take over all hive responsibilities except for laying eggs, which remains the sole duty of the queen. A colony grows larger over the summer, with up to 400 workers present by early fall, which is why we see so many more wasps and hornets at

this time. The hive also grows physically larger with each new generation. By the fall, the queen runs out of stored sperm and lays unfertilized eggs, which, remarkably, hatch into males. Until that time only fertilized eggs were laid and those produced females, resulting in an all-female colony! In late summer the queen places a few fertilized eggs in larger chambers. These produce new queens, which leave the hive to mate with males from other colonies. It is those mated queens that survive the winter and start

EMC lifestyle – When it comes to the weird and unusual, Nature is replete with examples. There are insects that look like twigs and caterpillars that resemble bird droppings. There are snakes that play dead and flies that give giftwrapped presents. Wasps are common inhabitants of our area. We know them well for several reasons. They inject powerful venom into our skin with hypodermic stingers. Some construct large paper nests that hang from trees and buildings. And in early fall they are present in annoying numbers. Bald-faced Hornets are the largest of the social wasps – wasps that live in organized colonies. Unlike most wasps that construct hives under-

removed. In fall when food becomes scarce, workers at hives are known to steal food from incoming caregivers, with larvae starving as a result. Whether that was happening in Karen’s colony or some other strange behaviour was taking place (sometimes live larvae are inexplicably removed), we will never know. Many mysteries concerning common local animals remain to be solved! The Nature Number is 613387-2503; email is mruntz@ start.ca.

new colonies in the spring. All old queens and workers die when sub-zero temperatures turn their internal liquid into ice. Recently, Karen Thompson from Almonte observed and photographed Baldfaced Hornets carrying large white objects out of a hive. She brought one to me and it turned out to be a larva. She showed me the hive and I also took photographs of this fascinating behaviour. Wasps and hornets perform hive maintenance and it may be that dead larvae were being

United Way and Arnprior LCBO partner on community yard sale

w www.jldgroup.ca EMC events -The LCBO, as part of its province-wide campaign entitled â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Give Back Where We Liveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, will again be partnering with the United Way to raise funds to address high priority community needs. On this Saturday, Oct. 6 between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m., the parking lot of the LCBO in Arnprior will be the scene of a community yard sale, the proceeds from which will go towards the United Wayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s countywide goal of $500,000. This event is part of a series of fundraising events being organized by companies and organizations for the United Way throughout Renfrew County to help its efforts to address Renfrew County��&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highest priority needs. The needs were identified during a public consultation initiative several years ago. They include youth, child poverty, seniors, safe affordable housing, transportation and health services. The United Way is aligning all its activities and funding within six priority or community impact areas to create significant and lasting change. A â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;call for proposalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; was issued in early July inviting registered health and social agencies that deliver services in Renfrew County to submit project ideas by the end of September. Sixteen agencies have submitted 21 proposals to address the United Wayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s community impact areas, ranging from youth services, in-

EMC events - On Sunday, Oct. 14, beautiful St. Peter Celestine Catholic Church in Pakenham will be the setting for the premiere performance of the new a Capella choir Con Coro. The choir, directed by Mervin Fick, will perform at 3 p.m. Con Coro is a small, experienced 18-voice choir, which started life last January. Its members are from throughout the Valley, including Almonte, Arnprior, Braeside, Ottawa, Renfrew, Killaloe and Lowe, Quebec. Con Coro will be joined on

Oct. 14 by members of Esprit, an award-winning a Capella choir from Toronto, also directed by Fick. Esprit, founded in 2010, was awarded first prize at the Peel Music Festival in April 2012 as well as at the OMFA Provincials in June. Esprit was also invited to be resident choir at Les Fetes de la Nouvelle-France in Quebec City this past August. There they delighted audiences with early sacred music and French renaissance Chansons. The program planned for St. Peter Celestine will be

part of the fundraising efforts for the restoration of the exterior of the 120-year-old stone church, which is a long-time favourite venue of performers because of its acoustic excellence. The two choirs will join to sing a program entitled Glories for Choir. Featured will be Palestrinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Missa Aeterna Christi Munera, a collection of F. Mendelssohn pieces and an ensemble of Canadian music. Tickets to the concert cost $20 and are available at the Gallery Gift Shop in Arnprior and at the door.

‘Green’ washroom opened at Red Pine Bay John.carter@metroland.com

EMC news – The washroom facility christened by the Township of McNab-Braeside recently at Red Pine Bay is no ordinary outhouse. The bathroom, made possible by a $32,400 grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, has several modern, environmentally-friendly elements, including a solar panel on the roof. It also has skylights and a rain collection system to allow for recycling of water in the washroom. Instead of a septic system, it has holding tanks, which have to be pumped out only one or two times a year. Several township and other dignitaries gathered Sept. 21 to celebrate the addition to the park. The provision of this new state-of the-art washroom facility will help ensure that family stays are longer at the Red Pine Bay area, it was noted. As the area is utilized for boat launching, special events and other recreational opportunities, “it is appropriate that there now be a washroom facility here to accommodate park visitors,” says a township release announcing the addition. Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MPP John Yakabuski, who was represented by Mary Ann Taman, sent a message congratulating the township for its efforts to improve the park. “This project will be a great addition to Red Pine Bay and provide new outdoor recreational opportunities for residents and visitors alike,” he said.

“These new facilities will improve accessibility and allow all residents to enjoy the area. I congratulate the municipality and all those involved in their successful application for this project.” Calling it a “gorgeous spot,” Taman said McNab-Braeside should be proud of its efforts to improve use of the park. McNab-Braeside Mayor Mary Campbell said it’s important for the township and all Ontarians to promote use of the park and its boat launch on the Ottawa River. “Chats Lake is an underutilized resource if there ever was one,” she said. “This grant is an investment for families in our community,” she said. “It will make all guest visits to the park a more complete experience and will be of great value as we host more special events at Red Pine Bay.” Grants have been important in allowing the township to improve its recreational offerings at Red Pine Bay as well as the Burnstown Beach and the recreational trail, she noted. She thanked council’s recreation committee and recreation director Geoff Patterson for their leadership in the project. Patterson said the township is considering leaving the washroom open in the winter as well as other three seasons to accommodate people ice fishing and snowmobiling in the area. The park will receive another upgrade this fall, as the boat launch has been approved for major improvements.

Kids get ‘rabbit ready’ for fire emergencies EMC news – The Fire Marshal’s Public Fire Safety Council (Council) along with fire departments and primary and pre-school teachers across the province, have introduced a new tool to help kids and families be better prepared in case of fire: cute and fuzzy bunny rabbits. ‘Have Two Ways Out’ is this year’s theme for Fire Prevention Week, which runs Oct. 7-13. The theme builds on rabbits’ instinct to always have at least two exits from their underground homes leading to safety. Arnprior fire prevention officer Cory Nicholas says families who create and practice an escape plan together, with two ways out of every room if possible, have a better chance of escaping during a real fire emergency. “An escape plan helps families respond more quickly and calmly when faced with a real fire situation,” he said. “When the smoke alarm sounds, everyone must know where to go – that’s why it is so important for everyone to have working smoke alarms and to develop and practice a home fire escape plan. A well-practiced plan is essential for a safe escape.” In Arnprior, the fire prevention effort extends through the entire month of October, featuring a special

website www/safeathome. ca/twowaysout where families can print out a free home escape plan template. They can also watch for it in the ‘Have Two Ways Out’ homework package, which the Fire Marshal’s Public Fire Safety Council designed to help parents, teachers and children work hand in hand. Families who register the completion of their plan online are rewarded with a ‘Have Two Ways Out’ certificate and the chance to win over $10,000 in prizes including Kidde Escape Ladders and smoke and carbon monoxide alarms. Teachers can also register their classrooms for a chance to win Domino’s Pizza Parties, glow-in-dark Kidde Sparky Smoke Alarms, and Sparky the Fire Dog plush toys that speak fire safety messages. CHECK BATTERIES

Arnprior fire prevention officer Rick Desarmia says two more factors are important for families to consider to avoid fire tragedy. “If a false alarm has caused you to take the batteries out of your smoke alarm, or remove it from the ceiling, it won’t be there when you need it most,” he says. “So when your kids come home from school excited to cre-

Sparky the Fire Dog stopped by the Arnprior Public Library Monday to kick off Fire Prevention Month. Sparky is seen enjoying a story about Thanksgiving at the Fire Station read by children’s librarian Carolyn Swayze. Sparky and Arnprior fire prevention officer Rick Desarmia delivered a fire safety message to the children, including such advice as ‘Don’t play with matches or lighters’, ‘Stop, drop and roll’ if your clothes catch fire, and when the smoke alarm goes off ‘Get out and stay out’. The children also got a tour of a fire truck and made a fire truck craft of their own. ate an escape plan, also make sure smoke alarms are installed and working on every storey of your home.” Desarmia adds: “Remember that smoke alarms wear out. Replace them every 10 years whether they are battery-operated or hardwired into your home’s electrical system.” Fire departments play a major part in the safety campaign’s success, building on their established school programs of working handin-hand with youngsters and educators.

“We look forward to this annual campaign because we’re out in the community talking about fire safety and escape planning at the grassroots level,” says Nicholas. “Children get excited about playing a role in their family’s fire safety and motivate parents to get involved too, so a lot of good is done inside this campaign.” A free home escape plan template and more family fire safety tips can be found online at the campaign website www/safeathome.ca/ twowaysout.

Garage fire on Goshen Road The McNab-Braeside Fire Department was called to help the Horton firefighters douse a garage fire on Goshen Road last Thursday evening. The fire broke out about 10 p.m. and required firefighters to bring in water.

Arnprior firm earns publicity from fire truck tender decision EMC business – The Town of Arnprior’s decision to have a local firm design and manufacture an emergency response truck has attracted the attention of Canadian trades magazines. Several business journals commented on the decision to have the specialized vehicle built at Arnprior Fire Truck Corp’s 135,000-sq.-ft. state-of-the-art plant in Arnprior. One article in the Canadian Manufacturing magazine notes that the company’s plant operates to the AS9100 aerospace quality standards. It goes on to say the company shares the

Plaintree resources of almost 100 employees including professional engineers, draftsmen, CAD operators, certified welders and support staff. “We are honoured that the Town of Arnprior has chosen us to build their next apparatus,” Graeme Cross, business development manager for Arnprior Fire Trucks Corp (AFTC), is quoted as saying. “We look forward to supplying the department with a truck built by local employees and backed by AFTC’s commitment to quality and service.”

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The OPP are taking a campaign to reduce unnecessary carnage on Ontario highways up a notch, teaming up with police services from across Canada during the Thanksgiving long weekend. Operation Impact is a national traffic initiative to save lives and reduce serious injuries and carnage on roads through increased public awareness and compliance with traffic safety laws. The initiative begins this Friday and runs through Monday, Oct. 8.

SEATBELT BLITZ

The OPP remind motorists that the annual fall seatbelt campaign continues until this Saturday, Oct. 6. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Are you in the habit of buckling up when you are in a vehicle? Your life can be saved by that simple act,â&#x20AC;? stress police. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Buckle up every time. Please ensure everyone in your vehicle is buckled up. The fine for not wearing a seatbelt is $240. The driver of a motor vehicle is responsible for ensuring all passengers under 16 years of age are wearing seat belts or properly secured in car seats.â&#x20AC;?

The OPP will continue to focus on impaired driving, aggressive driving, improper or lack of seatbelt use, and distracted driving. What are known as the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Big Fourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; causal factors continue to be the primary sources contributing to serious injuries and deaths in motor vehicle collisions. The other part of this national initiative involves OPP officers educating motorists about traffic laws, such as distracted driving and the Move Over legislation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Frontline OPP officers and

vehicles will be highly-visible throughout the Thanksgiving weekend period, maintaining a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;zero toleranceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, targeted enforcement approach toward drivers who place others at risk through bad driving behaviours,â&#x20AC;? said OPP Commissioner Chris Lewis. A total of 249 people have lost their lives in motor vehicle collisions so far this year on OPP-patrolled roadways, 13 people have died in marinerelated incidents and seven people in off-road vehicle incidents.

EMC lifestyle - Avalon Ranch hosted its second National Dock Dogs event Sept. 14 to 16. Autumn Fest on The Ranch kicked off on a rainy Friday afternoon, but that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop these die-hard dock diving athletes from catching some Big Air. Competitors huddled underneath a coverall with the rain streaming down all around them, anxiously waiting for their dogâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name to be called over the loud speaker. Laughing and cheering each other on, the dogs all jumped one by one to retrieve their favourite toys. Saturday morning started off a little cool and the campers at Avalon Ranch were up on deck first thing. The weather cleared off as they went into the Extreme Vertical rounds. This is where the dogs must use only half the length of the dock to gather enough speed to jump vertically and grab a bumper attached by magnets suspended from a crane eight feet out from the end of the dock over the water. The bumper is raised in two-inch increments after each successful attempt until there is only one dog remaining. The highest EV jump of the day was seven feet, two inches by a five-year-old Black Labrador Retriever named Taz, owned by Mike Chiasson

Alex Spurrell and Russ Rider from Dock Dogs USA brought the weekend to an end by doing an amazing job with the Canadian and American national anthems at the closing ceremonies. Avalon Ranch (www.avalonranch.ca) is looking forward to a big turnout next spring as more and more people come to watch the exciting sport of Dock Dogs. Avalon Ranch is sponsoring the Canadian Dock Dogs team that has been training right here in Renfrew to go to the televised world competition at the Five Flags Center in Dubuque, Iowa Nov. 15 to 18.

The philosophy of the new Ontario College of Trades, and its membership fees, will play havoc with the job market. That was the word during a skilledtrades roundtable at the Renfrew Legion last Friday. The event was hosted by Progressive Conservative MPPs John Yakabuski of Renfrew-Nippissing-Pembroke and Garfield Dunlop, the party’s critic for skilled trades and apprenticeship reform, who represents the riding of Simcoe North. Helping to answer questions and express their opposition to the newlyformed Ontario College of Trades were Walter Pamic of Power-Tek Electrical Services in Stittsville and Eric Glahs of Lorne’s Electric of Arnprior. Glahs is also past chairman of the Ontario Electrical League. He said he’d hoped for a turnout of about 100 tradespeople. Total attendance, including members of the media, was close to 40. The bill, which was passed in 2009, is scheduled to take effect in January 2013, but Yakabuski says it’s still not too late to voice opposition and convince the government that the bill is not good for the Ontario job market. The regulations revising trades qualifications and the establishment of the Ontario College of Trades are found in Bill 183. The bill has been enacted as Chapter 22 of the Statutes of Ontario, 2009. If elected to power in 2015, Dunlop and Yakabuski said the Conservatives

would kill the College of Trades. Both say the proposed regulations will cost contractors more money with the cost being passed on, in most instances, to the customer. “Nobody knows anything about it (the college),” said Yakabuski, “yet it is going to have huge implications on everybody who has a trade, on everybody who owns a small business that employs tradespeople, and everybody who is an apprentice or planning to get into the trade through the apprenticeship program.” In a period of skilled-trades shortages in this province, Pamic, Glahs and the two MPPs said their issues of concern include compulsory certification (for trades that are now considered voluntary) and increased fees for all compulsory trades. Most trades are currently classified as voluntary. Voluntary trades include drywallers, hair dressers, bartenders, barbers, carpenters, bicycle repairmen and painters. COMPULSARY TRADES ON RISE

Trades that are compulsory include plumbers, crane operators, refrigeration and air conditioning specialists, sheet metal workers, and steam fitters. But the number of compulsory trades could jump exponentially, said the two MPPs. The accusation is unfounded, said Ron Johnson, chair of the College of Trades board of governors, when contacted by The Chronicle Guide EMC. In fact, he said any particular trade would have to request a review by the college before any change from voluntary to compulsory. Regulations regarding apprentice-to-

journeymen ratio in Ontario companies aren’t likely to improve under the new college of trades, either, suggested Yakabuski. “There’s a shortage of skilled trades in this province, and it’s getting worse because the age of our tradespeople is getting up there,” said Yakabuski. “There’s a lot of people working in the trades who would like to get out of it (and retire), but they have nobody out there qualified to take their place, and one of the reasons is they can’t get enough apprentices through the system.” The College of Trades and its regulations are not going to keep more young tradespeople in the province to learn their trades, indicated Yakabuski. Johnson deflects that criticism, noting the College of Trades has recently reviewed a few journeymen-to-apprenticeships ratios. Two remained unchanged, while the ratio for the voluntary trade of resilient floorers was changed, said Johnson. At present, Yakabuski says Ontario companies can hire fewer apprentices per journeymen, compared to much better ratios in western Canadian provinces. For electrical journeymen, for example, the Ontario ratio is basically three journeymen per one apprentice, whereas in western Canadian provinces it’s 1:1, 1:2 or no restrictions, as in the case of British Columbia. Nor will those ratios improve in Ontario, suggested Yakabuski, if there’s increased pressure to have certain tradespeople pay larger or new fees. See MPPs, Page 25

JOHN YAKABUSKI each year, maintain the Liberals. “They (PCs) have no plan to create jobs; also voting

against jobs funds for Eastern and Southwestern Ontario earlier this year,” they added. The Liberals also criticized the NDP for being silent on eliminating the deficit and creating jobs. “They are quick to criticize new ideas but have no suggestions of their own,” charged the Liberals. Meanwhile, the PCS continue to push the government to adopt an “immediate, legislated, across-the-board wage freeze that would last for at least two years with no exceptions, no excuses and no work term giveaways.” The PCs say the measures would save taxpayers $2 billion annually by freezing all wages, bonuses and movement through salary grids for all civil servants including police officers and firefighters.

$12- or $13-million in start-up fees, said Johnson. Johnson, who was a Conservative MPP in the mid-1990s, says the college should bring in $17- to $20-million in 2013, whereas fees received in 2014 should be about $30 million — not the $84-million figure quoted by some PC critics. FEES, CERTIFICATION

“The decision was made a long time ago, when the legislation was drafted, that this would be a self-funding body,” said Johnson. The membership fee structure is misunderstood by many people, but Johnson said basically the certificates of qualification will sharply increase in cost, but be membership fees that include the former cost of certificates of qualification. Previous fees were about $20 per year, but will now be about $120. Yet they will

still be the lowest of any regulatory body in the province, says Johnson. Meanwhile, the Ontario Construction Employers Coalition has launched a grassroots campaign that urges the Ontario government to shut down the College of Trades and stop the trades tax. To join the petition, visit stopthetradestax.ca. However, Yakabuski encouraged opponents to the ‘tax’ to also write the premier and the Ministry of Trades, Colleges and Universities, since those letters or emails tend to have more impact. Build the pressure, Yakabuski told Friday’s audience. Scott Yemen, co-owner for Yemen’s Electric in Renfrew, didn’t like what he heard at the roundtable. “It (the college) needs to be gone,” said Yemen. “John (Yakabuski) spoke very well about it. It just needs to go. It’s nothing but bad news and bureaucracy.” “Who’s asking for it?” said Pamic. “I have yet to meet a tradesperson who is asking for the College of Trades. I have yet to meet an employer who wants this type of organization … What are its goals? It’s power and control; it’s very simple. It’s going to create compulsory certification of any trades and Quebecstyle construction.” In questioning the Conservatives’ criticisms of the Ontario College of Trades, Johnson passed this advice on to Dunlop: “I’d suggest he keep his nose out of the trades management system and let trades management manage itself.” Johnson also predicted the Ontario College of Trades will become a brand most businesses and tradespeople will identify with positively.

“To suggest the college is keeping ratios high is laughable,” Johnson told The Chronicle-Guide EMC, noting the ratios didn’t change when the Conservatives were in power. Dunlop, who is also a certified plumber, says the College of Trades’ arrival is ironic. He says tradespeople’s work in Ontario is improving by the year and that there is no need for additional certification. “You don’t need any more oversight; you don’t need any college of trades … they won’t train anybody at the college of trades,” said Dunlop. “It’s a huge bureaucracy, with already 50 people working there.” MPP Dunlop estimated this is the 70th meeting he has attended over the last year-and-a-half to warn about the negative ramifications of the bill. Dunlop has continuously lobbied for reforms to the skilled trades system, but he says this doesn’t include the kind of reforms proposed under the umbrella of the College of Trades. In fact, he calls the new college a “huge boondoggle” and says the college and the fees should be scrapped. Efforts need to be made to remove barriers in the skilled-trades system and to help create more work, said Yakabuski, stressing jobs are definitely not being promoted by (more than) tripling the cost of fees for skilled trades and creating certification that were previously not required for other trades. Glahs said, “we’re are concerned with the College of Trades’ new membership

fees, and feel there will be no benefits that will come from collecting these fees.” Without the fees there wouldn’t be a college, except for the government’s

Arbitration reform problematic: law experts Politicians who promise to cap public sector salaries â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;might be promising the impossibleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Derek Dunn derek.dunn@metroland.com

EMC news - City and provincial politicians are calling for arbitration reform as a way to rein in public sector wage increases. But at least two labour law experts say changes could prove difficult to achieve or possibly result in a less desirable system. Carleton-Mississippi Mills MPP Jack MacLaren and his PC party have proposed legislation to force arbitrators to factor in taxpayersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ability to pay when it comes to settlements. MacLaren argues that a deep deficit and slow economy is proof enough that taxpayers canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford to keep giving pay hikes to police and others deemed essential. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to stand up for taxpayers by fixing a broken system that awards unaffordable contract settlements to government union employees,â&#x20AC;? MacLaren penned in a recent column. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All arbitratorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; decisions must consider specific economic and budgetary factors, like the taxpayers ability to pay, when making decisions.â&#x20AC;? West Carleton-March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry has long expressed frustration that arbitrators can force elected politicians to pay more than they want to â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or campaigned on â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for services. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The thing is that arbitrators are unelected; they are appointed and they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care. At the end of the day he can say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You have the ability to pay,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? El-Chantiry said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always about increasing taxes. The â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;ability to payâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is a joke.â&#x20AC;? However, Prof. Michael MacNeil in the fac-

ulty of law at Carleton University says politicians are not just elected representatives; they are employers. That means there are laws preventing politicians from performing certain actions â&#x20AC;&#x201C; regardless of whether they made campaign promises such as an annual cap on tax increases. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all based on political decisions, that completely eviscerates the rights of employees,â&#x20AC;? MacNeil said, adding that tampering with an arbitratorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s neutrality harms two basic rights: freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining. That would mean â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in the case of police and others considered essential and not allowed to strike â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the likely rise of illegal strikes and other job actions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is quite natural,â&#x20AC;? MacNeil said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Should (public) workers subsidize taxpayers? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the counter argument.â&#x20AC;? TAX CORPORATIONS

The PCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s position that government canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get money to pay for raises is difficult to accept, MacNeil said, when Ontario has the lowest corporate tax rate among members of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development. The province also has a corporate tax rate lower than many European jurisdictions. El-Chantiry, chairman of the police board, again in September asked the McGuinty Liberals to â&#x20AC;&#x153;exercise fiscal restraintâ&#x20AC;? when negotiating with the OPP, because a settlement with the provincial force often sets the stage for increases among municipal forces.

ture that.â&#x20AC;? Banks said the arbitration process has positives and negatives, but that it is at least a place where reasoned arguments and reasoned decisions are held. He added that arbitrators attempt to replicate market-based labour decisions, although that can be difficult because often public employees are doing work with no private sector equivalent. However, he echoed MacNeilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s point that public workers shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be left to the whim of elected politicians. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a strong tradition in arbitration law that taxpayers shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get public services at a discount,â&#x20AC;? Banks said.

Liberals recently proposed stiffer rules for arbitrators, but the PCs and NDP rejected the plan. Even the Drummond Report contained suggestions for dealing with the process. The former TD Bank chief economist, Don Drummond, last February released a 665-page report calling for deep spending cuts. If not, he warned that the province will face a crippling $30-billion deficit by 2017-18. El-Chantiry said police settlements in remote or more dangerous areas shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t affect deals made in Ottawa, but insists they do. MacNeil doubts that is the case. Arbitrators are capable of rejecting irrelevant evidence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Arbitrators are not stupid,â&#x20AC;? he said. Prof. Kevin Banks in the faculty of law at Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s University allowed the possibility that arbitrators may infrequently accept weak comparables. But poor or novel decisions can go both ways. He describes a hypothetical situation where nurses are asking for pay equity with police officers. Arbitrators, he said, are conservative and usually base decisions solely on past precedent. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how they develop a desirable reputation among future negotiating teams on both sides. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They tend to have a lot of experience in labour relations,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t impose big changes.â&#x20AC;? He suspects an â&#x20AC;&#x153;ability-to-payâ&#x20AC;? law would be difficult to define and require a lot of evidence on behalf of governments to prove. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not at all obvious how you would struc-

MUNICIPALITIES POWERLESS

While the province appears poised to move ahead with legislation banning strikes and freezing wages on teachers, the Charter of Rights could prevent it from sticking, Banks said. On the other hand, he asks why the province can do it and municipalities canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t? The answer, he said, is that the province hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t conferred those powers on the municipalities. MacNeil and Banks agree that municipal politicians who vow to rein in spending on salary increases walk a fine line. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can understand why that would be a frustrating situation; one of the tools for cost containment isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t in your tool kit,â&#x20AC;? Banks said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You should know what you can and canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do before you start making promises.â&#x20AC;?

John Leslie to compete at 2014 Olympics

John Leslie has qualified for the Canada’s Para Olympic team that will be competing in Russia in 2014.

EMC sports – Though hard to imagine someone snowboarding in June, this is precisely what Arnprior’s John Leslie was doing last summer. The tryouts for both the Olympic and Para Olympic snowboard team were held in Whistler during this time. The snow was slushy and it rained a lot, but Leslie was very proud when he heard he made the Para Olympic team and will be off to Sochi in 2014 to represent Canada; or perhaps to put it more specifically, Arnprior. A tremendous amount of training and effort went into making the team. But this is merely the beginning of a long road ahead. Leslie is in his third semester at Algonquin College taking Small Business Management. He hopes to apply what he is learning in college to a full-time career at Home Hardware. When he is not in class or working at Arnprior Home Hardware, he is at the gym. It is taking a bit longer to get through college than the average person, as he is required to spend his winter months at Whistler doing his on-hill training. This is not as fun as it might sound. There is a lot of hard work involved. As well, this means going to college during the summer months.

“I am lucky to have an understanding boss,” said Leslie, about his relationship with the owner of Arnprior Home Hardware. “In fact, Neil (Slater) is quite fit himself and works out a lot, so we often are able to get to the gym together.” Like the entire community of Arnprior, Home Hardware has stood behind Leslie from the very beginning. When he was going through his cancer treatments in 2003, the family received a delivery one winter evening from an Arnprior Home Hardware representative. It was a commemorative print of Roger Neilson, the former coach of the Ottawa Senators who succumbed to cancer. Leslie still looks to that print for inspiration and as a reminder that cancer can hit anyone at anytime. SUPPORT APPRECIATED

The Leslie family is still very much humbled by the support and understanding received during this very trying period of their lives, from meals to lawn cutting and house cleaning. “We cannot thank the community enough.” Close to 10 years after this special delivery from Home Hardware, John Leslie is, ironically, entering into his sixth year of employment there.

Despite Leslie having a prosthetic leg, Slater took a chance and hired him as a summer student when he was going into Grade 9 at Arnprior District High School. Slater’s only concern was whether Leslie would be able to haul a bag of fertilizer up a ladder or accomplish the myriad of other tasks around the store that involved heavy lifting and climbing. John now considers this type of work as part of his off-hill training. One need only look at the wall of “thank-you” pictures and plaques in the foyer of Arnprior Home Hardware to realize what a natural fit it is for an Olympic athlete to be working there. THANKS TO HOME HARDWARE

Like so many of the other businesses in Arnprior, Home Hardware does more than its fair share when it comes to community support. It is what makes a town thrive. Leslie is also appreciative of the flexibility being given by his employer, so he can take extended periods of absence in order to train on-site in British Columbia. Home Hardware is representative of the entire Arnprior community’s support of Leslie over the years. Nobody achieves anything of real significance entirely on their own. It takes a village. Whether it is the Optimist Club lending financial support, Play It

Again Sports getting him properly fitted with sports equipment (and sometimes overlooking payment), McEwan Homes (a special thank you Scott and Joanne and the entire Old Orchard community) quietly helping John with his travel costs, or the many Home Hardware customers donating their Aeroplan miles at the checkout so he can get to the various world championships; this kindness and generosity makes his Olympic journey all the more special. So much so that John cannot imagine settling down anywhere else other than Arnprior. As soon as his college and Olympic days are over, Leslie intends to move back to Arnprior and make it his permanent home again. Next time you are in Home Hardware and see John, be sure to congratulate his making the Canadian Para Olympic Snowboard Team Don’t forget to give a knowing nod to Slater and the rest of the Home Hardware Team; like so many others in Arnprior, they are to be commended for sticking with John through this journey. Perhaps in a year or so, Leslie will be bringing an Olympic medal back home to Arnprior. But perhaps that’s getting a bit ahead of ourselves and putting too much pressure on a kid with an artificial leg and a heart of gold. In truth, that is the only gold that really matters.

EMC sports – Melissa Bishop, the Valley’s very own Olympic athlete, visited Arnprior District High School Sept. 26, told her story and conversed with ADHS track and field athletes. Bishop is widely known as one of three women ever in Canada to run the 800-metre run in under two minutes. Her run time is 1:59 - the national Canadian record is 1:58. Six or seven years ago on a spectator’s bench at the ADHS track, this quote was born: “It’s like someone slapped a pinnie on a deer and let ‘er go!” The quote accurately sums up Bishop in a nutshell: a Valley kid with godspeed. Throughout her high school career (at an establishment referred to as Opeongo High School), she frequently visited ADHS to compete in track meets. Post London Olympics 2012, Bishop has a presence about her. Throughout her entire presentation at ADHS, the collection of teachers and students who attended, around 50 in all, held her undivided attention. An immeasurable amount of respect was directed toward the Olympian. All 50 who gathered to meet her knew full well an athlete who was on national TV and who ran under Canada’s flag had come to give them advice and inspire them to achieve their dream. Bishop spoke of her training schedule, six hours a day, six days a week. She runs as much as three six-kilometre runs a day and visits a masseuse/chiropractor (a fun mix) for not-so-enjoyable massages. She sleeps in an altitude tent - pretty darn cool - training her lungs even in her sleep. What motivates her are her workouts and her races, an adrenaline rush second to none. She explained her eating habits the morning of a race: porridge and yogurt in the morning, no citrus fruit, and maybe even some Subway for lunch, but nothing high in tans-fat. What she emphasized was her hope, her only wish for the humble Arnprior athletes to take away from the presentation. To be inspired by her story, to know that Valley kids from towns with populations under 1,200 can do big things for 35 million people. To keep doing what you’re doing, run as fast as you can, and never close doors. One day Bishop hopes to return to the Valley and use her Bachelor of Education degree from Windsor University to teach high school.

Former Packers lead Ottawa to win over Arnprior John Carter John.carter@metroland.com

EMC sports â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Arnprior Packers must be happy they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to play the Ottawa Junior Canadians again this season. Ottawa outscored Arnprior 8-5 and 8-6 in a home-and-home series last Friday and Tuesday. Former Packer Taylor Collins had the first two goals against his old team Sept. 28 at the Nick Smith Centre and struck for five points Tuesday in Ottawa as the Canadians battled back from a 5-1 deficit to win the game. The losses dropped the Packers to 3-3 in the tight Valley Division that sees three teams with six points and two with four. There was both good news and bad for the Packers in the two games. Allowing 16 goals and being badly outshot is a concern. Ottawa outshot Arnprior 46-16 Friday and 64-21 Tuesday, including 28-5 in the second period when it struck for four straight goals to tie the game. However, Packer goalie Kyle Lamothe kept his team in each game, making an impressive 56 saves Tuesday. Despite the onslaught, the Packers did not give up, battling to the end in each game. The line of Derrin Lehoux, Ethan Allard and rookie centre Jared Steege continues to shine, racking up eight points in each game. Lehoux had a hat-trick Tuesday to pull into second place in league scoring with nine goals and seven assists in six games. Allard is fifth and Steege is seventh in the scoring race. However, the lack of secondary scoring must be a concern to the coaches. The only players other than the top line to score in the two games were Luciano Pietrantonio, Liam Porter, Brayden Harvey and John McLean. In last Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game in Arnprior, another former Packer, Mitch Parker, had a hat-trick. Collins had a goal and four helpers Tuesday after a three-point outing last Friday. The Packers host two first-place teams on the Thanksgiving weekend. Surprising Stittsville, which blasted Renfrew 8-2 last Friday, is at the Nick Smith Centre for an 8 p.m. game this Friday, while Metro-leading Gatineau is the visitor at 7:30 Sunday, Oct. 7. The Packers then host the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fall showcase. Arnprior plays Brockville Friday, Oct. 12 at 6 p.m. and Cassleman Saturday at 12:30 p.m. after the official opening ceremonies.

Above, former Arnprior Packer Tyler Collins scores against his old team last Friday, as Ottawa Junior Canadians won 8-5. Collins had eight points in two games against his former team Friday and Tuesday. Fans were talking about the long hair of Almonte goalie Peyton Parker, left, when the Packers hosted the Thunder Sept. 21. It turns out that Peyton, unlike her quarterback namesake, is a female. She played well, stopping 21 of 26 Arnprior shots as the Packers prevailed 5-4. It brought back memories of Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rachel Barrie, who played goal for the Packers a decade ago.

ADHS football teams gear up for Turkey Bowl with wins John Carter John.carter@metroland.com

EMC sports â&#x20AC;&#x201C; This Arnprior Redmen football teams will bring winning records into this Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s traditional Turkey Bowl clash with RCI of Renfrew. But then, so will RCI. The two rivals will clash at the Arnprior District High School ďŹ elds, with the juniors playing at 1 p.m. and the seniors at 3 p.m. The game has been moved to Thanksgiving Saturday this year after being held Sunday for years. A barbecue and 50-50 draw will add to the festivities. The Senior Redmen improved their record to

3-0 with a 41-21 win over Mackenzie of Deep River last Friday. ADHS leads the senior division with RCI in second at 2-1. Renfrew will be out for revenge, as its only loss came to Arnprior 42-21 in the season opener. Meanwhile, the junior Redmen bounced back from a 16-6 loss to St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s of Perth last Friday with a 21-11 home victory over Carleton Place Tuesday. The Redmen returned to their winning ways with the win, but Carleton Place was no pushover. Moore reports the victory came courtesy of a ďŹ nal play touchdown. Quarterback Brody Flegal connected with Austin Martin for

a key passing play and Noah Potter, Carter Wilson and Will Ruddy all had determined runs for the Redmen. The entire offensive line played as a unit to offer up huge blocks. Keaton Beale made good on his converts while John Russell had a solid game on offense and defense. Zack Major, Jon Cronk, Coleman Orenstein, Zac Sadler and Matt Dupuis made big tackles during the game. Both ADHS and RCI have 2-1 records going into Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s showdown.

School varsity girls rugby team kicked off its season Tuesday with a convincing 34-0 win over Mackenzie in Deep River. Bethany Rampton and Amber Clouthier led the team with two tries each, followed closely by Laura Graham with a try and two conversion kicks, and Hilary Lalonde, whose tireless work resulted in the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ nal try. Erica Campbell and Hannah Blair stopped Mackenzieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offence with aggressive defence and punishing hits, while Jessica Couture and newcomer Kirsten Trafford ran for substantial yards when they had possession of the ball.

Travel time will be cut down as the league will be divided into north and south divisions. ADHS, RCI, St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Opeongo and Madawaska Valley will form the South Division, leaving Fellowes, Bishop Smith, ESJL, Lâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;EQ, General Panet and Mackenzie in the north. Teams will play home and home games with teams in their division. The top four teams in each division will advance to the playoffs. The quarterďŹ nal games will feature crossover games, with the ones playing fours and twos playing threes from the other division. The ďŹ nals, which could result in traditional division rivals such as Arnprior and Renfrew meeting, will be the best out of three.

Some 78 players participated with two-thirds representing 23 golf clubs from as far away as Winnipeg and a third being Brockville Country Club members. The ďŹ eld was evenly divided into four ďŹ&#x201A;ights with gross scores only counting. (â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ďŹ&#x201A;ight 0 to 2.9 handicaps, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Bâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 3 to 5.9, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Câ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 6.1 to 11.5 and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ďŹ&#x201A;ight 11.9 to 18).

HAVE TWO WAYS OUT! Practice home fire escape planning during Fire Prevention Month

have

The Arnprior Fire Department has requested that the Town of Arnprior proclaim October 2012 as Fire Prevention Month. While fire officials hope that all residents of our municipality use good fire safety practices at all times it is this time of year that we wish families to take extra time to ensure their household is ready for a fire situation. This year the fire departments theme in conjunction with the Ontario Fire Marshalls office is â&#x20AC;&#x153;Have Two Ways Outâ&#x20AC;?. When the smoke alarms sounds, everyone must know where to go â&#x20AC;&#x201C; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why it is so important for everyone to have working smoke alarms and to develop and practise a home fire escape plan. Fire Prevention Officers Rick Desarmia and Cory Nicholas are urging families in Arnprior to practise their home fire escape plan as part of Fire Prevention Month. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In a fire, you may have only seconds to safely escape your home,â&#x20AC;? said Fire Prevention Officer Rick Desarmia. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Early detection of a fire by a working smoke alarm as well as a home fire escape plan can help to get everyone out safely.â&#x20AC;?

ways out

Fire and smoke can spread quickly, so be prepared in advance with these simple steps for home fire escape planning:

SUBMITTED/SANDYE HOOK

Left, St. Lawrence College students Kailey Hook, left, and Samantha Zroback with a sign explaining their Braeside Beach clean-up project. Right, the students with the trailer full of trash and scrap metal they picked up Sunday along the newly opened beach below the village of Braeside.

Students clean up Braeside Beach as a college project Environmental initiative also a thank you to McNab-Braeside for educational support through bursary John Carter John.carter@metroland.com

EMC news – The Braeside Beach looks much tidier this week after a pair of St. Lawrence College students conducted a clean-up as part of a class project Sunday. Kailey Hook and Sam Zroback, students in the college’s environmental technician program at the Cornwall campus, wanted to do a project that had some positive impact for the community. While Zroback hails from Kenora, Hook has spent her whole life as a resident of McNabBraeside. She received the Township of McNabBraeside Bursary at June’s ADHS graduation ceremony and thought cleaning up the newly reopened beach would be a great way to thank her home municipality for the award. The girls discovered the Great Canadian Shore Line Clean Up that was running across Canada throughout September (www.shorelinecleanup.ca). They found out about the Braeside Beach that way, as it had been nominated as a spot that needed to be cleaned up. The project required a site co-ordinator to organize the event. Hook and Zroback signed on, received the blessing of the township and within a short

amount of time were able to organize a successful clean-up day. The project included not just picking up the trash but also documenting and recording the variety and quantity of items found at the beach. The categories include trash from shoreline and recreational activities such as litter from fast food, beach-goers, sports/games and festivals, as well as run-off from streets/storm drains and the like. CANADA-WIDE PROGRAM

There is a category for litter from recreational/commercial fishing and boat/vessel operations. Another category covers smoking-related activities - butts, lighters, wrappers, etc. Another section included dumping activities such as appliances, batteries, building materials and a medical/personal hygiene category. Unfortunately, trash collected fell into each category many times over. The data the students collect is returned back to the Vancouver Aquarium, which analyzes the information for each region across the country. The national results are then sent off to the International Coastal Cleanup (ICC) to be compared globally.

The reports are shared with policy makers, businesses, schools/colleges and the general public in order to share the problem of aquatic garbage and the importance of a clean environment. Five people besides the two students showed up to lend their support early on a Sunday morning. The forecast was gloomy with rain threatened all day, but thankfully it held off while they got the job done. A total of 118.6 lb. of trash was cleaned up and bagged for disposal. Another 23.1 lb. of recyclable material was sorted and 22.3 lb. of broken glass was recovered from about 2.5 kilometres of shoreline. GOLF BAG, BARBECUES FOUND

Amazingly, a heaping utility trailer was filled with collected larger items, mostly metal and steel, including numerous mattress springs, old paint cans, several propane tanks and many large, rusted saw blades. As well as approving beach access for the students, the Township provided a dump pass to allow them to dispose of their collection. Some of the more interesting items collected included a golf bag, two barbecues, a carpet underpad, the insides of a TV, shingles and car parts. G AT STARTIN

Dear GACC members/Local Merchants: The board has come up with a very unique fundraising campaign that will help promote Arnprior businesses, promote shopping local and will help the GACC raise much needed funds for operational costs for the upcoming year, but we need your help! The concept for - The “Gift Certificate Windfall” We want to collect as many gift certificates as possible from our membership and local merchants and create one large basket of all these gift certificates. The value of the prize will depend on the collective value of the gift certificates. Once all the certificates are collected, the value will be determined, and a license will be obtained and tickets will be printed.

KATE GLYNN

Susan Strackholder has opened Twin Rivers Studio in Arnprior to help businesses and people, including those getting married or throwing a special party, with design needs.

Tickets will then be sold to the public up until the AGM at which time the winning ticket will be drawn. Just imagine the opportunity of providing the winner with such an awesome collection of gift certificates just before Christmas!

New studio offers design support for businesses, individuals Kate Glynn

EMC business - Whether looking for help to brand your new business or create a flawless event package, Twin Rivers Studio may be the answer. The recently launched Arnprior-based design business offers two streams of service options - one for businesses and the other for individuals. Owner Susan Strackholder brings a strong background in small business management and design expertise to the table in providing administrative, design and marketing support for small and medium businesses and special event collateral design for individuals. The development of Twin Rivers Studio sprang from Strackholder’s background as a professional photographer whose work was most recently adopted by the law firm of Tierney Stauffer in support of the Arnprior District Memorial Hospital Foundation’s digital mammography campaign. She likes the latitude of design, which she says offers more creativity than photography. BUSINESS SUPPORT

Working with businesses, Strackholder helps translate a client’s vision into a tangible design to brand and position their firms within the marketplace. She understands the challenges new business owners face, one of which she says is cash flow. “A professional look is an important component of a successful business. It is the first impression someone has of your business and the mistake some business owners make is to design their own logo and business cards in order to save money.” Strackholder cautions against this. Common mistakes include the use of too many colours, too much information and a confusing use of

fonts, she explained. Twin Rivers Studio is a home-based business and because of this, costs are reduced. “I don’t have the same overhead that a large firm has and these savings I pass on to my clientele,” she said.

Our hope is that we receive so many gift certificates that we are able to create a Grand Prize, but also have a second and third prize package. Let your imagination run… this has got to be a gift certificate, NOT product – I believe every business has the ability to offer a gift certificate of some sort…

PERSONALIZING SPECIAL EVENTS

Designing the right look and feel for any event is important but nowhere more important than for the bride and groom on their important date. “Couples are no longer looking for a cookie cutter wedding. The trend really is to personalize the event,” Strackholder explained. During an initial consultation, hobbies, interests, colour schemes and even the ceremony location are taken into consideration as a theme for the event is developed. “Everything must be picture perfect and the theme must flow throughout. This begins with the invitation - it sets the tone for the wedding,” she said. “From wine and water bottle labels, programs, maps, menus, seating chart and thank you cards, the day is integrated with personalized branding.” Strackholder listens for what is behind what her clients are saying in order to reflect their unique union. In this way guests have an experience of the couple as well as witnessing the event. Twin Rivers Studio offers business, corporate and personal communiques, including announcements for grand openings, launches, parties, anniversaries and birth bridal showers. It has a variety of holiday cards in stock and can have them custom designed. To view a complete list of services and design options, visit www.twinriversstudio.ca and check out the link to her blog for the latest in trends and design news. You may also call Strackholder directly at 613-277-0683.

For example…. Retail or Restaurants – that’s easy… a Dollar valued certificate Automotive – how about an Oil Change? Or Brake inspection? Heating & Cooling – how about a furnace cleaning Hotels – one night accommodation Marina – day rental Landscaping – a certificate for a tree So let’s all pool together and come up with great certificates that will give us collectively great prize packages to win. Please let us know by phone or email 613-623-6817 or info@gacc.ca your intention and don’t forget to include value … then you can then drop off your gift certificate to the Chamber office, or let us know if you wish it to be picked up. Thanking you in advance for your support and please remember, think outside the box if you need to!!!

OPP issue jewelry scam warning for retailers, public Some victims have been defrauded for amounts ranging from a few hundred to up to $5,000. At a retail shopping check-out, a victim may use a debit card while the suspects are behind memorizing the PIN number. Once outside, the victim is deliberately distracted while another suspect steals his/her wallet. In other retail locations, while a store employee is distracted by a suspect, another female suspect will hide items in pockets under a long, flowing skirt - so-called “booster” skirts - before exiting the store. OPP remind store employees and community members to be aware of these incidents.

Upcoming Events November 20th Sandvik Steel Plant Tour December 6th Annual General Meeting held at CVTel 1004.R0021661508

EMC news – The OPP has issued a news release reminding the public and store owners to always ensure their personal safety and prevent becoming victims of theft and fraud. The warning was prompted by numerous complaints of distraction thefts in retail outlets and fraudulent or ‘black market’ street-level sales of merchandise, including jewelry, in several areas of Ontario in recent weeks.\ These incidents are not isolated, say police. The suspects travel in groups using rented vehicles and are identifiable by the distinctive types and styles of clothing they wear, which also assist with their crimes.

Watch for more information to come. Arnprior Chronicle-Guide EMC - Thursday, October 4, 2012 35

YOUTH

Three ghoulish youth events planned for Halloween Kayla Menkhorst, Don Gougeon Youth Corner

EMC lifestyle – Halloween, a holiday that is celebrated all across the world, was originally called All Hallows Eve, Oct. 31, the eve before the Western Christian feast of All Hallows.(Wikipedia). It means a night of trick-ortreating, costumes and scaring others, We are keeping up those traditions by hosting three Halloween events. To start off the festivities,

we will be going on our first bus trip to Saunders Farm. On Oct. 19 from 5-10 p.m., we will be heading out to the corn mazes, haunted house and the haunted hay wagon. Beware though, this is at night and isn’t for the faint of heart. Our bus is for youth only and as all our bus trips, we offer staff chaperones, but it is more a transportation service. We do not go in groups, although we do urge everyone to stay with at least one other

person. It’s a great way to get discounted rates. For only $20, you get the bus and ticket. But don’t wait to the deadline of the Friday before (Oct. 12) to register. If we fill up prior, as it is a shared bus with Renfrew Recreation, then we can’t let you on. Following the bus trip, we are having our pumpkin carving again. Scott MacLaren has grown us some great pumpkins and we will be having a night for everyone

of all ages to come out and carve their pumpkin and win prizes for it. This is all happening on Wednesday, Oct. 24 from 68 p.m. Cost to register is $5, and must be done a week prior to the event. Lastly, to finish off the festivities just before actual Halloween, we will be hosting our Haunted Walk again.

Sparks to sell Girl Guide cookies Saturday EMC lifestyle – It’s cookie time! That’s right, it’s time for the Girl Guides of Canada (GGC) annual fall cookie campaign. Members of the Arnprior Sparks, Brownies, Girl Guides and Pathfinders are now out in full force selling chocolate mint cookies. The Sparks (girls ages 5 and 6) will be selling in the foyer at No Frills in Arnprior this Saturday, Oct. 6 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Since 2010, the chocolate mint cookies have 90 per cent less trans fat per serving, which should make a great Thanksgiving treat. A box of cookies costs $5 and the funds raised from sales go directly back into the programs, which give girls the chance to discover new interests, learn valuable leadership

skills and make lasting friendships. The Sparks are hitting the street on Thursday, Nov. 1 from 6 to 7 p.m. in the John Street area, so be prepared to purchase one of 4.8 million boxes of cookies that are sold each year across the country. GGC Cookies are produced by Dare Foods in a nut-free/peanut free bakery to ensure everyone can enjoy them. GGC have been selling cookies in Canada since 1927 and they are the official fundraiser of the organization. Don’t forget you will also be able to purchase the classic chocolate and vanilla cookies in the spring. If you would like to purchase a box of cookies, please contact Guider Tiffany Lepack: tiffanylepack@gmail.com.

Musicans band together to help rural church At 53 years old, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a writer and broadcaster and produced shows for artists such as Murray McLauchlan and Valdy recently, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but I especially love these type of old-time gatherings,â&#x20AC;? he says. His productions such as Doo In The Derry (Prospect United Church), Music From The Valley (in the Heart of Prestonvale), An Evening Along The Tracks (Railway Museum of Eastern Ontario) all have one thing in common. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Their purpose is to bring people together in an effort to celebrate common heritage and to establish (or re-establish) the sense of community and togetherness that built the Ottawa Valley in the first place,â&#x20AC;? says Dillabough. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In that sense the Glasgow United Church fits the bill perfectly, as itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s located in the hamlet of Glasgow Station where the original Booth Line passed through on the way towards the timber rich areas of Eastern Ontario. A place of solice and worship for those early settlers who had come in search of a new life in a new land. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Built in 1949 for $5,000 the building has undergone several changes over the years but has never lost its original country church appeal and down-home feel.â&#x20AC;?

Help needed for Zombie Walk EMC events â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The first ever Arnprior Zombie Walk is a go, but organizer Tina Carr needs more volunteers to help with the event.

It is being held in support of the Arnprior and District Food Bank. Both participants and spectators are asked to bring donations of non-perishable food. Anyone of any age is permitted to participate, but participants under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult (18 and over). Anyone interested in helping should call Carr at 613-316-5457.

EQUIPMENT STOLEN

But, it was in Saskatoon where their love for Canada really grew, and out of a bad experience nonetheless as $15,000 worth of their equipment was stolen after their Saskatoon gig, including their all of their luggage. However, after making the theft public, and asking for help, their fans, which included a large number of Canadians, raised more than $9,000 to get the band new instruments and the band back on the Trans-Canada to continue their tour.

Drought Level 2 Continues County of Renfrew residents and businesses,on groundwater and municipal sources, are encouraged to continue to practice water conservation with a target of a 20% reduction in water use. Despite recent rainfall, the groundwater levels have not shown any significant level of recharge, and they are below normal across the County. Even if we experience significant rainfall this autumn, our groundwater levels may not re-charge adequately for the winter months. Suggestions for residents relying on groundwater and wells: If you have a dug well where you can safely and easily measure the level, record it and check weekly to determine if your well is recharging or if you are at risk of losing your water supply. Do not attempt to measure levels in a drilled well - consult a well drilling contractor. Indicators of low water: lower than normal flows, sediment in the water or cloudy water all indicate low well water levels. You should immediately consult a licensed water well driller. The Renfrew County & District Health Unit is recommending that you have a water quality test performed to ensure your groundwater is safe for human consumption.

Melding southern rock, hard dance, psychedelic blues and deep soul, their debut fulllength album led to critical acclaim, and a rare sweep of six awards at the SXSW 2011 Austin Music Awards.

EMC events - On Sunday, Oct. 14 a special event will take place at the Glasgow United Church in Glasgow Station - one that will celebrate traditional Ottawa Valley culture, history, music and spirit with the emphasis on community and togetherness. From 2 to 4 p.m. a fundraising concert, which has been dubbed A Time Up The Line, will take place featuring traditional country, Valley and gospel music mixed together with people, stories and â&#x20AC;&#x153;charactersâ&#x20AC;? from the area. Several Ottawa Valley musicians and media personalities will provide the entertainment, but it will be the church itself and the people in attendance that will surely provide the greatest stimulus for the event. Lyle Dillabough, who is presenting the show along with folks from the Glasgow United Church, reports it will feature Dia Bassett, Arlene Quinn, The Holley Sisters, Bernie Costello and more. Admission is by donation and seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. Staging shows and community celebrations such as this in old churches and buildings throughout the Valley has become somewhat of a calling for Dillabough in recent years.

SENIORS

Plenty to be thankful for at this time of year EMC lifestyle - Every day back in the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;30s, according to Mother, was a day of thanksgiving. Looking back, there was indeed much to be thankful for. And as Thanksgiving is upon us, perhaps it is appropriate that those things we took for granted so many years ago, should be remembered. So what are some of the memories of those Depression years that have lasted through the decades, and in recalling them, have me wondering what has happened to what we took for granted so long ago? Let me turn back the clock, and let me take you back to a more gentle time, as I recall with thankfulness lessons learned and a way of life that was more safe and secure.

I will be forever grateful that I lived in a time when it was perfectly safe to walk three miles of back country roads to a school without fear. Even in the cities so far away, children felt secure, and a Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s warning was not to be wary of strangers, but rather to keep out of the ditches of water so that we wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t catch our deaths of cold. I am thankful I lived in an era where the owner of the General Store trusted his customers. Where you filled your own bag of cookies, put it on the scale yourself, and had the cost added to your Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bill, which hung on a nail behind the counter. And if you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the money to pay for your groceries, you could offer a trade. Where sometimes weeks

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

would go by, and no money changed hands. It was a time when a young child was taught that honesty was all a part of doing business. I am thankful today that I grew up in an era where a deal was made with the simple shake of a hand. And it was binding. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take a lawyer to draw up papers to trade a couple head of cattle for an old model T, or a load of hay, for a steer, or a few loads of gravel for your first car.

Today, I am thankful I grew up in a home where there wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a lot of money for frivolities. It was a time when we children made our own fun ... toys from a piece of whittled wood, playthings like empty spools of thread, a button box, and Eatonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s catalogue ... all filling hours of fun and not costing a penny! I am thankful today that because we lived in a house overflowing with aunts and uncles, cousins, and grandpar-

ents, I learned at an early age what it meant to be tolerant. I was taught that it was more blessed to give than receive. Giving up our bed for an elderly aunt, had Mother reminding us how the aunt enriched our lives with her stories, her hand-knitted mitts, and pans of Johnny Cake, the best I have ever tasted. Today, I am thankful we had a wonderful doctor who would drive out from Renfrew, plowing through snow and blinding rain, and whose only pay might be a dressed chicken, or a couple dozen eggs and some fresh butter. And I remember his sitting by the bed of a very sick little girl until the dawn crept into my bedroom window and my fever broke. I am thankful today that I

grew up in a home where every child had a special worth. Where even the youngest was made to feel important, and daily chores, done to a parentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s satisfaction, was all part of growing up. We were taught that it was all right to fail, and that from each failure came a lesson. This is the legacy handed down to us by a generation of people who, although never rich in material wealth, were rich in the things that mattered. This is the time to be thankful for that era that made us what we are today, and to be truly thankful for all the blessings we enjoy today living in a free and bountiful country. May each of you have a happy and blessed â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thanksgiving.â&#x20AC;?

EMC news - The Renfrew County Geriatric Services Network invites the public to learn more about key issues that affect societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s aging population. The free education day will be held at Groves Park Lodge from 9 a.m. to noon on Monday, Oct. 10. Dr. Frank Molnarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s presentation will include information on drugs to slow down dementia, how to identify depression, and more. Dr. Jennifer Becker will share information on medications and illnesses that affect driving and driving tests. A light lunch will follow the seminars. Dr. Molnar, a certified specialist in geriatric medicine and the medical director of

the Regional Geriatric Program of Eastern Ontario, will present a public education seminar on Drugs in Dementia: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. Topics covered will include drugs to slow down dementia, identifying depression and drugs to treat depression, and identifying delirium and stopping or decreasing doses of drugs that cause delirium. At present, there is no cure for Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Disease. However, there are medications and other approaches that, in the first few years, can help with some symptoms and improve quality of life, in some people. Although these drugs do not work for

everyone, they are a valuable step forward in the treatment of Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Disease. Dr. Becker from the Renfrew County Geriatric Mobile Day Hospital will be presenting the public education seminar, Is Driving Your Best Choice? The Renfrew County Geriatric Services Network notes in a news release that driving a motor vehicle is a complex activity that requires quick reactions; the ability to divide and maintain attention (e.g., watching traffic light and pedestrians while keeping oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s foot on the gas pedal or brake); good judgment; an understanding and ability to recall the rules of the road; the ability to find a destination; and adequate eyesight and hearing.

FOOD

This Chop Suey is not a regular Chinese dish EMC lifestyle - On one of our visits to Jeffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parents, his mother and I went shopping in the local supermarket. In the bakery section, we came across a loaf of bread called a Chop Suey Loaf. We could see that it contained fruit, not Chinese vegetables, and decided to give it a try. With a soft texture and bits of candied fruit scattered through each slice, it was delicious, plain or toasted. After some experimenting when I got home, I came up with a similar loaf that I could make in my bread machine. To make this, use the diced candied fruit that you use in Christmas baking. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s avail-

able year round from many bulk food stores and in the supermarkets around Christmas. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to rinse the candied fruit with water to remove excess sugar. This gives the bread a lighter texture. The recipe calls for skim milk powder and water. In some recipes, you can substitute milk for the dry milk powder, but not in this one. Milk makes the loaf heavy and dense, while the skim milk powder gives a much lighter texture. CHOP SUEY LOAF

3/4 cup water

PAT TREW Food â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Stuff 1/4 skim milk powder 1 egg 1 tsp. salt 1 tbsp. white sugar 2 tbsp. butter or margarine, at room temperature 2 1/3 cups flour 1 cup candied fruit 1/4 cup raisins 1 1/4 tsp. bread machine yeast

Before you start, measure the candied fruit into a sieve, and rinse it under cold water to remove excess sugar or syrup. Spread the fruit on a double thickness of paper towel, and blot up as much of the water as you can. Set aside. If your machine has an Extras option, which adds fruit or nuts automatically, measure

the raisins into the section for Extras. If it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, you will have to add the raisins later. Place the water, milk powder, egg, salt, sugar and butter in the bread machine pan in the order given. After measuring the flour, use about 2 tablespoons of it, and lightly dust the candied fruit with it. Place the remaining flour in the bread pan, then add the floured fruit. Leave a small area free of fruit, and measure the yeast into that spot. (You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want the yeast sticking to the fruit and not mixing into the batter.) Set the bread machine for

the Sweet Cycle, or on some machines the Fruit and Nut Cycle. If it has the automatic Extras feature, press the Extras button. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use the Delay Cycle with this loaf. This recipe makes a 1 ½-lb. loaf. If your bread machine has a setting for different loaf sizes, press the one for this size. Start the machine. If your machine doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the automatic Extras feature, it will beep when it is time to add extras. Add the raisins, and let the machine continue until the bread is done. Remove the loaf from the pan, and let it cool for an hour before slicing.

Handle and cook your Thanksgiving turkey safely this weekend EMC lifestyle - Cooked turkey is a central part of many holiday celebrations in Canada - especially Thanksgiving. Health Canada reminds Canadians of some steps they can

take to help ensure their turkey feast is a safe one. Following the four key steps to food safety - clean, separate, cook and chill - can help reduce the risk of getting sick

from undercooked turkey and stuffing, and from cross-contamination during preparation. To keep bacteria from ruining your familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s celebration: â&#x20AC;˘ Store your turkey in a

leak-proof bag or container in the refrigerator or freezer immediately after you buy it, â&#x20AC;˘ Thawing your turkey at room temperature is discouraged. It's better to thaw it in the

refrigerator or in cold water. â&#x20AC;˘ Don't rinse raw turkey. This can spread bacteria everywhere the water splashes, creating a safety hazard. â&#x20AC;˘ Wash your hands carefully with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds before/after handling raw poultry.

â&#x20AC;˘ Clean and disinfect surfaces and kitchen utensils touched by raw or thawing turkey and its juices. and use a digital food thermometer, and cook turkey until the temperature of the thickest part of the breast or thigh is at least 85ÂşC (185ÂşF).

William Francis

BURTON YORK, Jamie In loving memory of our dear Jamie who left us so suddenly and tragically while at work, October 6, 2009. He is gone, but not forgotten, And, as it dawns another year, In our lonely hours of thinking, Thoughts of him are always near. Days of sadness will come o’er us, Many think the wound is healed, But they little know the sorrow, That lies in the heart concealed.



God knew you were suffering He knew you were in pain He knew you would never Get well on earth again He saw the road was getting rough And the hills were hard to climb So He closed his weary eyelids And whispered “peace be thine” It broke our hearts to lose you But you did not go alone For part of us went with you. The day God called you home

Arnprior Legion plans busy fall JANET TOBIO Arnprior Legion

PATRICK SIMMONDS PRO, Cadet Committee

EMC lifestyle - Once again, members of the Arnprior 2360 Army Cadets Corps gathered at the Arnprior Legion for one of two tag days they will hold this training year. Tag days are their way of raising funds for extra training exercises, equipment and field trips. Lieutenant Rob Dufour, the corps Support Committee Chair Joanne Leduc and six other members and parents of the cadets all pitched in to make it a successful day. The volunteers drove the cadets to and from their assigned places, also checking in with them periodically to be sure everything was going well. They also helped with the lunch. There were 15 cadets out in the morning and 10 in the afternoon. Numbers were down slightly, but people were generous and the fundraiser is considered very successful. All cadets seemed in high spirits. The cadets corps thanks the stores that allowed the cadets to use their place of business for this fundraiser. Many thanks to No Frills, Tim Hortons, Rexall Drug Mart, Home Hardware, Arnprior Mall entrance, Canadian Tire and Giant Tiger.

EMC lifestyle – It’s over. Yes, Legion Week is over for another year. Now on to the next venture. Legion week was very successful, as ‘rain, sleet, snow or hot sun’, although we didn’t have all of those that week, could not stop the bingo players, horses from racing , card players or the golfers. It was a good week, lots of work but fun. Thanks everyone for all your time and ambition. October is always such a pretty month and busy both at home and at your favourite Legion. This past May the Legion held a big band sound dinner and dance. It was a great success, to the point that members and friends have asked them to organize another one. Always prepared to make people happy, they’ll do it again Oct. 19. A fine-dining three-course dinner will be served and, in addition for your enjoyment, the sounds of Big Band dance music from Monty & Friends. The Poppy campaign and Remembrance Day are among the most important times of the year for the Legion, because this is what it’s all about. All donations go to the betterment of the veterans’ well-being. Be generous when you see the Legion members and cadets offering you a poppy from Nov. 2 to 10. Wear the Poppy proudly when you join them on parade and at the cenotaph on Sunday, Nov. 11. The Legion will be humming all fall as bookings (slight decrease in costs) are starting to fill up and many of the organizations in town are taking advantage of their very good facilities and the catering available. Bingo is a big hit on Monday nights and the kitchen is open for numerous snacks and sandwiches. And, of course, the Legion offer a Friday night dinner the second Friday of each month and a humongous breakfast the last Saturday morning of each month. Put them on your calendar - don’t miss anything! Are you a member yet? Memberships are what keep the Legion going - be a member today.

Army Cadets hold tag day to raise funds

The Ontario Breast Screening Program (OBSP) is a comprehensive, organized breast cancerscreening program. Its mission is to reduce mortality from breast cancer by delivering high quality breast screening to Ontario women between the ages of 50 and 74. OBSP has been in operation since 1990. It is operated by Cancer Care Ontario and funded by the Ontario Ministry of Health and LongTerm Care.

Women who are not eligible for the OBSP can be referred by their family doctor. A mammogram can see a breast cancer tumour the size of an apple seed. The average size of a lump felt by checking your breasts is about the size of a cherry tomato. Mammograms on a regular basis are the most reliable way to detect breast cancer early when it’s most treatable.

A Digital mammography Unit has recently been purchased, due to overwhelming community support. This new piece of equipment offers digital images that can be adjusted, zoomed, store and shared electronically. This allows for early breast cancer detection for women when it is most treatable. All you need to book an appointment is your health card. You do not need a referral from your doctor. All breast screening technicians are female and the average appointment takes 20 minutes. The OBSP screens women 50 years of age and over and automatically recalls clients until the age of 74. Clients over the age of 74 are encouraged to consult with their family physician about continued screening. Call today 613-623-7962 x359

There are approximately 12,700 women within 20 minutes of Arnprior Regional Health who will be benefiting from the Digital Mammography Unit. The number is expected to rise by 8% in 2012 and 15% in 2020.
