One fundraiser down with the Pet Valu fun fair raising about $1,400, and another one to go this Saturday for the Arnprior and District Humane Society.
EMC news â€“ Arnpriorâ€™s reputation for rallying behind its sports teams and major athletic events is proving true again. And there is a lot to rally behind. More than 200 volunteers have come forward in Arnprior to help the town host the World Broomball championships that will be held from Oct. 29 to Nov. 3. Arnprior is also hosting the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League fall showcase this weekend (see Page 29) for the ďŹ rst time. Itâ€™s also in line to be home base next spring for one of the teams competing in the world womenâ€™s hockey championship. Arnpriorâ€™s Junior B hockey team is defending Valley division champion and several Arnprior District High School teams are strong contenders to repeat last seasonâ€™s successes. One of its athletes, John Leslie, has qualiďŹ ed for the 2014 Para Olympics. Arnprior has become quite the sporting town. â€œIt never ceases to amaze me,â€? said Arnprior recreation director Glenn Arthur. â€œWhen we put something on in this town, people come out to participate. We couldnâ€™t do it without them.â€? The 56 teams from several countries will be arriving in just over two weeks to compete in the prestigious tournament that will be played in Arnprior, Pakenham, Almonte, Carleton Place and Beckwith.

EMC news â€“ The many community contributions made by Arnprior resident historian Doug Scheels has been recognized again. It was announced last week that Scheels is one of 20 Ontarians who will receive this yearâ€™s Senior Achievement Award. The award is the provinceâ€™s highest recognition for seniors over 65. It honours seniors who have made an â€œoutstanding contributionâ€? to their community through voluntary or professional
activities, such as the arts, community service, voluntarism, education and ďŹ tness. The news release announcing three of the winners notes that Scheels, a lifelong resident of Arnprior, is a highly respected member of the community. â€œHe has always found ways of helping those around him by coaching local hockey teams, supporting community events and keeping local history alive,â€? the release says. Scheels was named Arnpriorâ€™s Senior of the Year for 2012, appropriate in the townâ€™s 150th year, given his wide knowledge of the areaâ€™s historical.
He made several contributions to Arnprior 150th anniversary publications and frequently writes letters to the editor reminding readers the importance of preserving the townâ€™s history. Scheels could have gone to Toronto to receive his award, but likely be presented with it in Arnprior. â€œTodayâ€™s recipients of the Ontario Senior Achievement Award have given so much of themselves to improving the quality of life in this province. I am delighted to honour these worthy seniors with this important award,â€? said Ontario Lieutenant Governor David C. Onley.

Schools adopt visiting broomball team’s countries Continued from front
The final games will be played at the Nick Smith Centre. Arthur said he could do with more volunteers in Pakenham, but the Arnprior contingent of helpers is strong. A number of Arnprior District High School students have jumped on board to help during the tournament.
Arnprior noted that all five Arnprior schools. including ADHS, as well as McNab Public school, are participating in an adopt-a-country program. The students will attend a game played by a team from its adopted country to cheer them on In return, the players will be visiting their school to talk about sportsmanship, athletics
and the game of broomball. The posters to promote the tournament were going up around the area Monday. The schedule of games should be finalized this week. Tickets will soon be available. There will be weekly and day passes, which let fans into all of the arenas involved. Students are admitted free.

EMC news - The investigation continues into the plane crash that took the life of a veteran pilot Monday afternoon. Robert John Reany, 74, of Port Elgin, died when his singleengine Socata TBM 700 went out of control and fell from the sky near Calabogie around 12:15 p.m. Reany, who left the Carp Airport and was flying alone in his
six-seater, was heading to Goderich for Thanksgiving dinner with his family in southwestern Ontario. Greg Veldhizen of Fitzroy Harbour witnessed the crash while at his trailer about two kilometres from the site. “We thought it (sound) was a motorcycle, then looked up in the sky,” Veldhizen said. “It looked like it was doing acrobatics. Then suddenly an explosion. Then quiet.” It was a return trip for Reany, who was scheduled to land in Goderich about 1:30 p.m. Timmins lawyer Lorenzo Girones and Reany had flown from Goderich to Carp earlier in the day. Veldhizen arrived at the crash site 20 minutes before emergency crews to find the $3 million new plane shattered, no seats or evidence of human life. “The engine was the biggest thing left,” he said. “We were looking for any people or a body, but couldn’t find anything.” While it is still too early to determine the cause of the crash, Transportation Safety Board Investigators said Tuesday that the impact was so intense that it uprooted a giant oak tree. “We can tell from the marks on the trees and the impact on the ground that it was very steep with the nose down and hit with a great deal of speed,” Ewan Tasker of the Transportation Safety Board of Canada said near the scene. The plane had climbed to 27,400 feet before quickly descending off the radar. “We’re starting to gather witness statements (and) get a background on the plane and the pilot,” said Tasker. “We’ve heard varying accounts. Fire damage was limited to 10 or 15 per cent of the plane, Tasker added. “We’ll start the clean-up relatively soon, in the next day or two. It could be a bit of a struggle,” Tasker said, of the difficulty to access the crash scene, which is in rugged country in the Centennial Lake area. The plane was registered to Girones last month. There was no report of any communication from Reany prior to the crash. “There wasn’t anything unusual from initial reports,” said Tasker. “There was no may-day call from what I understand, or no distress call.” -With files from Derek Dunn
EMC news – McNab-Braeside resident Terry Thomson left last week’s council meeting frustrated after hearing he will need to re-zone his property if he wishes to proceed with a special event. Thomson along with Sheri Kopetoske had asked council to consider implementing a special events permit process to help guide property owners wishing to hold not-for-profit and community-sponsored events in the township. The request was made back in the summer after Thomson’s plans to hold a motocross fun day on his Mill Ridge Road property was halted by the township. On advice from township planner, Bruce Howarth, Thomson approached council to ask it to consider adopting a special events permit bylaw along the lines offered by several other area municipalities. Township staff was directed at that time to investigate the proposal. In addressing council last Tuesday, CAO Noreen Mellema said: “Both the ministry and the solicitor encourage that zoning must be in place in order to issue a special event permit. Citing Greater Madawaska
as an example, she indicated that a special events permit issued in a similar situation was approved because the property was zoned commercial. “A special event permit serves to regulate an event, the zoning determines permitted uses,” she explained. “There is a temporary zoning exemption from the zoning bylaw that you could pass. You must go through the same process under the planning act and hold public meetings, but this exemption only applies when it is a temporary type event,” she offered. Using the example of a circus, Mellema explained, “the rides are brought in and set up and then taken away and the property returns to its original zoning.” In the case of a motocross event, Mellema pointed out, “the infrastructure stays, the track is not taken away. In this case a temporary zoning exemption would not be an option; it would have to be re-zoned. “And it can be re-zoned,” she said. “They don’t need a special event permit other than council can still pass a special event bylaw, which governs special events,” she added.

McNab Days festival to take the next year off? Kate Glynn
EMC news – Could McNab days be in for a year’s hiatus? The future of the festival was discussed at the McNab-Braeside council meeting Oct. 3 after Mayor Mary Campbell informed council that “troops are out planning for 2013. I just don’t want them to get too far down the track before they have council endorsement.” Councillor Brad McIIquham was quick to respond. “I am in favour of having next year’s McNab Days,” he said. Councillor Aldene Styles hesitated. “We took a loss this year,” she put forward. “We did last year too. We made $2,500 but we spent $1,700 in tax dollars. Part of that went to our OVTA membership and extra hours
improvements that we got to Red Pine Bay and the beach. These far outweigh the $2,000 or $2,500 that the township invested not to mention the commercial activities. “And remember McNab Days was part of the argument for the Trillium Fund,” she stressed. “We wouldn’t have any of it, if we hadn’t had some kind of event.” “I want to see the final numbers before I make a decision,” said Deputy Mayor Christine Blimkie. Grant applications are due Nov. 15,” Campbell reminded council.
for the recreation director. This year was about $2,000,” Campbell said. “Maybe we should give it a rest for a year and then go back to it next year,” Styles offered. Councillor Bob Campbell referred to the drop in participation. “One of the reasons for the difference in numbers is the Scottish Festival,” the mayor pointed out. Mackie McLaren organizes the popular event, which is only held every other year. “This would be the year for the Scottish Festival,” Campbell added. “I agree with you the numbers were down,” she said. “We have a group of volunteers that are saying, ‘oh it isn’t as good as we wanted it to be, but we can make it better’. “The thing that has me supporting it is the
CANADA DAY MOVED
McNab-Braeside council has voted unani-
mously in favour of moving Canada Day celebrations for 2013 to Red Pine Bay. In his recommendation, recreation director Geoff Patterson indicated the recreation committee and McNab-Braeside Fire Department were in agreement that the location was more desirable due to recent improvements. At the Oct. 3 council meeting, Councillor Brad McIIquham concurred. “One reason to move the event is that McNab Days has made the park quite attractive and more functional.” The Poker Walk and parade route through the core of Braeside will remain the same, except that it will wind down to Red Pine Bay. The barbecue, cake and games will take place at the new location. “The move opens up many possibilities,” Mayor Mary Campbell pointed out.
Neighbours approved of one-time event, says organizer Continued from Page 5
Thomson, who was hoping that a special events permit would allow him to operate a one-time event, said: “What, now I can spend $1,000 to re-zone and be turned down again. Environmental studies, endangered species studies … I’m not going to pursue it.” Still holding sheets of paper that he said contained the signatures of neighbours supporting the event, Thomson said holding a motocross fun day was not originally his idea. “It was neighbours that came to me after learning I have a track; that is what started the whole thing. It’s
the kids that will really be disappointed,” he said. Council found few reasons to implement a special event permit process in the township. “I can’t think of a single example when you would want to have a special events permit for an event on your own property. “Why can’t you do what you want on your own property, as long as you are within noise bylaws?” Deputy Mayor Christine Blimkie wanted to know. “It would depend on the number of people involved,” Councillor Mcllquham offered.
Councillor Aldene Styles agreed, adding, “and the type of event and if tickets are being sold.” “And now we are into zoning bylaw and permitted uses, “Mayor Mary Campbell pointed out. “One thing is when the event is by invitation and the person knows who is coming; when the event is open to the public now you have a security issue. Whether a person is charging or not to me that is a separate issue and covered by zoning. “The other is when the numbers supersede the safety and capacity of the normal infrastructure and by this I mean toilets, kitchen facilities, ac-
commodations, security measures. Then we want to have a special events licence, if only to make people aware of liability insurance and who should be notified like the police. Arguing in favour of a special events permit bylaw, Mayor Campbell stressed, “ if we have no bylaws in place, there is nothing stopping me from having a party of 100 people on my property every weekend. “What are we trying to manage is to avoid that extreme.” “What, we want to pigeon-hole people more,” Blimkie questioned. “So you are against a special permit bylaw,” Campbell countered.
“Yes,” Blimkie replied. “The community has asked us to pursue a special events licence process, I am not going to waste any more of staff’s time if we are not going to actively pursue this,” Campbell said. “I’m not against it,” McIIquham said. When queried directly, both Councillor Campbell and Styles indicated they were undecided. “With two no and two undecided, I am the only one that is interested in pursuing. Council, I am going to suggest we drop the issue,” the mayor concluded.

Liability concerns slow approval of Junior Firefighter program Kate Glynn
EMC news – A proposal to implement a Junior Firefighter Program in the Township of McNab-Braeside has been put on hold. Council reviewed an outline of the proposed guidelines submitted by the township fire department at its Oct. 3 meeting, but expressed concerns over issues of liability and the term ‘emergency scene’. The program, which would introduce 16-to-
18-year-olds to firefighting theory and equipment is being spearheaded by deputy fire chief Dave Hartwick. “He brought the idea forward and I fully support this initiative; it has a lot of validity for us,” said fire chief Ken Walton who did not attend the council meeting but spoke later in an interview. While there isn’t a formal national Junior Firefighter program similar to the one offered in the United States, several fire departments
Alligator sighted at Red Pine Bay The W.D. Stalker Alligator Tug Boat is going home. The historic vessel, which played a part in two McNab Days river crossings, was brought across the Ottawa River from Bristol to Red Pine Beach last Friday. The 25-ton boat was dragged up onto level ground in the parking lot for a lift with a 90-ton crane being brought in specially from Ottawa. The Stalker is being returned to Simcoe, where is berthed in the Lynn River. The Alligator boats were manufactured in Simcoe from 1889 through to the 1930s. Of the almost 300 that were built, the Stalker is the only remaining operating Alligator steamer in the world. It is a symbol of hundreds that would have plied the tributaries of the Ottawa River watershed and other logging areas from Maine to Minnesota. The project to bring the Stalker to the Ottawa Valley was managed by the Canadian Forestry Association.
(in Ontario) offer programs, whether in the way of a weekend session or camp,” explained Walton. “Participants in this program would receive some basic training and I emphasize basic training and theory … to prepare them to look at this as a career and with the possibility that they may want to join the volunteer fire department, down the road. It is very much in the development stages.” Deputy Mayor Christine Blimkie voiced several concerns: “When reading through this, my thought is no kid should be at an emergency scene. Learn practical applications, yes, but not be involved in an emergency scene. Also I have concerns about the application where it asks for some background information, which I don’t deem applicable for an after school/fire recreation program. I don’t think we are allowed to collect that personal information.” Mayor Mary Campbell suggested, “the problem is, there is no program description here, which may clear up some of the concerns.” Asked by Coun. Aldene Styles whether council is in favour of the program, Blimkie replied,” as it stands, I am not in favour. Definitely not in favour of any kids this close to an emergency situation or handling chainsaws and hydraulic equipment. We are liable as a
township.” Referring to the vehicle extrication program that offers pre-service firefighters handson experience through simulated scenarios, Coun. Brad McIIquham offered: “It may also be similar to the students that we bring in from Algonquin College for training. I know they are not allowed on accident scenes or at fires.” Mayor Campbell responded to Styles inquiry enthusiastically. “I am a big fan of this. I think the description will help and then we can discuss the liability issues and overcome them.
“There is a need in our society generally for real life skills and a Junior Firefighter program will go a long way with helping with some of that. “So while we are picking out things, let’s not throw the baby out with the bath water. I think it is a great program,” Campbell said. “It has the potential to attract youth from other communities. If we go ahead with this, I think it will be great for the township.” Council has referred the matter back to the fire department for further clarification before final consideration.
Hay trucked in from the west Continued from front
Strike praised the efforts. “I think this is a good example of Canada.” Renfrew County Ontario Federation of Agriculture (OFA) spokeswoman Donna Campbell reported the transport truck load of hay arrived at the Cobden Fairgrounds Tuesday morning. The organizers, the OFA, Mennonite Disaster Relief Agency and the Christian Farmers of Ontario took advantage of an empty truck returning from the West, she noted. The hay will go to dairy farmers Roy McCoy and Luke Martin, who will pay three cents a pound for it. Organizers anticipate more loads coming this way. Ten years ago, Ottawa Valley farmers sent hay west when Prairie farmers were suffering through a drought, Campbell noted.

Enjoy the autumn colours So much for all the talk that the dry summer would mean no profusion of colours in the woods this fall. All weâ€™ll get is dull yellows, some of the prognosticators predicted. They couldnâ€™t have been further from the truth. In some areas, such as Burnstown, shown at left in a photograph by reporter Steve Newman, the fall colours are breath-taking. Driving through the backroads around White Lake, Burnstown, Goshen, Castleford and Calabogie does the heart good. The sumac and sugar maple provide for a glorious feast for the eyes all the way up and down the Valley. Take the Burnstown-Calabogie-Griffith-Dacre loop - spectacular. Or head
down the east side of White Lake, past the White Lake Marina and Cedar Cove, through California and on to the Tatlock quarry viewpoint, where the chalky white limestone contrasts so vividly with the forest background. Itâ€™s been a tough year in the Valley, with the economy sagging, drought-stricken farmers hurting and foresters unable to find markets for much of their products. But seeing how the areaâ€™s forests have survived the drought and rebounded to provide us with another autumn spectacular gives hope for the future. Nature is resilient and if history is any guide, so are the citizens of McNab-Braeside, Arnprior and their Valley neighbours. So colour us thankful and optimistic.
Outdoor lighting, health and neighbours To the Editor: The town is reviewing its policy of outdoor lighting to reduce waste and improve its effectiveness. A few weeks ago I gave a presentation to members of the Planning and Environment Committee about outdoor lighting and they suggested it would be helpful if I submitted an article on the topic to the Chronicle Guide EMC to help inform the public on some aspects of outdoor lighting. Outdoor lighting serves an aesthetic and a practical purpose and both affect our quality of life. But you donâ€™t get something for nothing. As
with any technical advancement, they can also cause unsuspected problems. The aesthetics of outdoor lighting is somewhat controversial. One personâ€™s art is anotherâ€™s eyesore. Municipal bylaws attempt to define a compromise. This usually means that outdoor lighting should not shine across a neighbourâ€™s property. The light fixtures should be shielded and not so bright that scattered light causes glare along streets and into windows. In fact, a number of European countries have strict limits on the use of outdoor lighting. See LIGHT, Page 9
Light fixtures should be shielded and not so bright that scattered light causes glare along streets and into windows, according to letter writer Robert Dick.
Web Poll Poll Results
THIS WEEKâ€™S QUESTION
A recent survey indicates 92 per cent of Canadians over 12 are happy with their lives. Does this make sense?
Itâ€™s fire prevention week. Should all areas be covered by full-time firefighters?
A) Why not. Canada is one of the
most prosperous and beautiful countries in the world. Count your blessings this Thanksgiving.
A) Yes, unpaid volunteers shouldnâ€™t have to
put their lives on the line to fight fires.
B) No, all our fire departments should be fully volunteer, including those in our towns.
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 canâ€™t overcome. Be happy, be confident of the future.

Two volunteers recognized mittee was approached about having gardens created to commemorate the millennium, Brenda embraced the idea enthusiastically. She took a leave from her place of work to spend her time working on the development of the gardens in 2000. For the past 12 years she has co-ordinated volunteers for work days, taken the bookings for weddings and events at the grounds, acted as secretary to the committee, and worked continually at planning, planting and maintaining the various gardens. She also trained and provided supervision for our many excellent summer students in addition to providing advice to our museum attendant. What remarkable contributions made to our township by these long-time volunteers. Neil Stewart, Acting Chair McNab-Braeside Heritage & Museum Committee
To the Editor: We have a lot to be thankful for as we reflect on Thanksgiving Day. The wheat crop was excellent. Hay is of excellent quality. Pastures greened up again in late August after some rains. There are farmers with “hay for sale” signs at their laneway. The price is dropping as the need isn’t as great as it was during the summer. It certainly was a difficult summer for farmers but great for politicians needing some exposure. Very few folks around here could name the provincial agriculture minister, but that changed a little this summer when the Grain Farmers of Ontario organized a tour for Ted McMeekin on two area farms. A posse of scribes and photographers followed the entourage and he was on the evening TV newscasts and in the weekly newspapers –outstanding in the field. McMeekin wasn’t the only politician capitalizing on visiting disastrous crops and parched ground. See POLITICIANS, Page 10 R0011672439 1011
To the Editor: The members of the McNab-Braeside Heritage & Museum Committee would like to thank and recognize publicly the outstanding contributions made by two of our recently retired members. Barrie Stewart joined the committee in 1998 and was named chairman in 1999. He provided the committee with excellent leadership, as the members adjusted to many changes including the development of the beautiful gardens at Waba Cottage. As chair, Barrie attended many meetings throughout the county representing our interests in addition to providing oversight of many projects ongoing at our museum grounds for the past 14 years. The second individual is Brenda Storie. Brenda has been a member of the committee for almost 30 years. When the museum com-
Drought profitable for politicians
Light at night can be unhealthful On the practical side, product development throughout the 20th century has been minimizing the costs, and maximizing the light output and area of coverage. However, new scientific knowledge can take a decade or more to make its way onto the education system - for it to become ‘common sense’. It is generally believed that light is good because it makes dark places safer, and brightly lit cities look beautiful. Indeed light has become synonymous with urban prosperity. But there can be too much of a good thing. What was not popularly known in the 20th century was the link between light at night and our body’s reduced ability to overcome disease, infection, stress – in fact most things that we value as our quality of life. These are not recent findings; they have been accumulating over the last century but this data has been re-interpreted by the science of scotobiology (the biological need for darkness). This new interpretation reinforces the “common sense” that all life forms have evolved to take advantage of their local environment. More than half the animals take advantage of the anonymity of darkness at night to avoid predation as they forage for food. Both plants and animals subconsciously interpret the lengthening night-time darkness as a cue for the coming of winter, and they begin to prepare by storing food, accumulating fat, or migrating. For us, when it gets dark, as determined by the fading daytime blue light, our bodies release hormones to initiate and carry out tissue repair, and fight infection and disease. But blue is a main component in artificial white light that is emitted by new outdoor light
fixtures, television and computer screens. We also use white compact florescent bulbs and LED night-lights. When used at night, white light inhibits our bodies from achieving the peak of health. What is not printed on the boxes of whitelight bulbs is that the American Medical Association and the World Health Organization have concluded that white light at night poses health risks and contributes to the formation of cancers. These findings do not undermine the aesthetic and safety benefits of appropriately shielded lighting, but it does suggest that we should use light much more sparingly that we have in the past. What Can Homeowners Do? Shield all outdoor lights (don’t shine light over a neighbour’s property). Use the lowest practical wattage bulb (subtle lighting is better than glare bombs). Minimize the use of white lights at night (use amber “bug lights” for colour contrast). Turn off outdoor lighting when you go to bed (don’t display property when no one is awake to see vandals). What Can Business Do? Turn off outdoor lighting when business is closed. Use contrasting colour in signs instead of black on white. Shield façade lighting to avoid glare along streets and neighbouring properties. Robert Dick, Canadian Scotobiology Group The Royal Astronomical Society of Canada R0011667524

Home where the heart is for new reporter Sabine Gibbins firstname.lastname@example.org
EMC lifestyle - No matter where life takes you, the roads home will never change. This is one of the sentiments I learned over the past several months. Life took me on such an unexpected journey this year, catapulting me from one corner of the country to a place I never thought I’d set my feet down on. As I look back, I can hardly believe that in March I went from the urban network of Ottawa to the rural woodlands of north-western Saskatchewan. There were warnings: winters are bitterly cold, colder than Ottawa’s. I am going to freeze to death. Meadow Lake, Sask. is effectively in the middle of nowhere. There are no shopping centres nearby, no Bayshores, no Rideau Centres, no Ottawa River Parkway.
Reporter Sabine Gibbins is excited to be back and working in the region. I’d be more than 3,000 kilometres away from family, friends, all the people and places familiar to me. The adventure – as I like to call it – changed something in me.
Over the course of the six months I was there, I worked as a reporter for a well-respected community newspaper. I became brave, I became conﬁdent, I became stronger. Having never lived away from home before, I had to prepare myself, although when I moved out there I already knew somebody. Skyping became a close ally, but I continued to sometimes miss being closer to family, to take the ﬁve-minute drive to Chapters to check out the latest bestsellers, or to Tim Hortons (Meadow Lake had no Tim Hortons or Starbucks. Don’t ask how I survived!) However, I adapted well into the rural northwest, and came to love it. I learned about chuckwagons, learned about the strong agricultural industry, the aboriginals, the fact McDonald’s coffee is not half-bad, that I’m not actually afraid of horses, and most importantly, cowboys comprise
an immense portion of the population. I explored the rural northwest pocket of Saskatchewan, taking weekend trips to Lloydminster, Alta., and Cold Lake, Alta., as well as to Edmonton. Some of my new friends introduced me to Meadow Lake Provincial Park, a jewel in the northwest. Many nights were spent roasting hot dogs and marshmallows over a campﬁre. I loved the fact I got to see a different side of Canada, and a deeper appreciation set in for our beloved nation. I drove my 2001 Toyota Corolla (which was shipped out west, by the way), to faroff, in-the-middle-of-nowhere places, sometimes fearing what would happen if I got stuck. With maps in hand, and my head spinning, I’d creep into small villages, thankful I made it to my destination, and met some of the kindest
people ever. But in September it was time to come home – home to Ottawa. A ripple of excitement rang through me as my car sped down Highway 401, seeing signs for Belleville, Kingston, and Smiths Falls. I was home. The experience Saskatchewan gave me is one I will always remain grateful for, and truthfully, one I will never, ever forget. And now, I am nearly back where I started, as a reporter for at the West Carleton Review EMC and the Arnprior Chronicle-Guide EMC. Writing has always been my passion. It’s always been the thing I’ve known how to do best. In my past four-plus years as a reporter, I think I’ve grown tremendously as a journalist and a person. As a young girl I remember countless trips to and from the Ottawa Valley with my fam-
ily. The Antrim Truck Stop was always a popular spot to have dinner, and still is, as was strolling through downtown Arnprior. Pinhey’s Point in West Carleton remains one of my favourite places to venture to with a camera, as does the Carp Fair when September rolls around. Growing up and still living in Kanata, I’ve always been a city girl at heart, but the countryside always delights me. The untouched and peaceful nature of the Valley and the rural parts of the City of Ottawa are sights familiar to me. I’m still new to the area, but would love to hear from you. Please don’t hesitate to let me know what’s going on in your community, or if there is a person or topic of interest you think would make a good story. Drop me a line at sabine. email@example.com or call me at 613-623-6571.
Politicians gain exposure from drought, and it didn’t cost them a cent Continued from Page 9
A few days earlier the Conservative agriculture critic, Ernie Hardeman, was in the riding, meeting with farmers in a town hall type meeting. He wanted action from the McGuinty government. Hardeman and a few his Conservative MPPs drove down rural roads with two crop farmers as guides and checked out the worst corn ﬁelds in the area. The press tagged along for the event. You’d think it was the ﬁrst time in history that there
was a summer drought. While a few politicians were truly sincere and concerned how the drought affected farmers, other politicians were just interested in publicity for themselves. With McMeekin and Hardeman in town and Federal Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz making worthless announcements (defer taxes on cattle sold) that would set them back instead of helping them, it was a real farce to say the least. I toured California twice and saw ﬁrst hand how they grow tremendous crops in desert-like
conditions. They’ve been doing it for 70 years. California has eight million acres of cropland; 7.6 million is irrigated during the entire growing season. They get no summer rains and daily temperatures are usually over 100 degrees Fahrenheit. They have 308,000 acres in tomatoes and 400,000 acres in lettuce. Ontario has 18,200 acres in tomatoes and the same in lettuce. California has 40,000 acres in strawberries. Ontario has 4,000 acres. They have far more dairy and beef cattle
than Ontario does. One county in California has more dairy cows than in all of Ontario. If there’s a drought or other catastrophe, people look to the government for aid – even the Back off Government landowners can’t resist it. The drought was great publicity but for all the wrong reasons, You can’t count on governments to help you in a crisis, even if the agriculture minister comes to your parched area with a TV news crew.

Pakenham area nature reserve to be officially opened Oct. 21
A beaver pond is one of the many natural sights on the High Lonesome Nature Reserve near Pakenham. A dedication ceremony and celebration will be held on the property at 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 21. property form part of a provincially significant wetland complex. As a result of a bioblitz organized by the Land Trust in
June, a species inventory was begun and over 675 species were recorded. Thanks to funding from the Ontario Ministry of Natural
Resources Species at Risk Stewardship Fund, additional inventory work is currently underway with a focus on targeted species at risk.
Special appreciation goes to Ken Spicer, Barry’s brother, for helping to shepherd the donation of High Lonesome through to completion and
for Ken’s continuing dedication to the preservation and documentation of the natural values of this exceptional property. Thanks to his energetic efforts over the years, High Lonesome Nature Reserve has a network of trails that wander up, down and through the forests, by beaver ponds, creeks and wetlands, trails that have been enjoyed by individuals and naturalists clubs alike. To take full advantage of the nature reserve’s rich biodiversity, these trails will form the foundation for outdoor education, nature interpretation and recreation. Thanks to a grant from Mountain Equipment Co-op, the MMLTC plans to erect interpretive signs along the trails, describing the unique ecological features and wildlife habitat found there. The dedication ceremony and celebration of High Lonesome has been planned for 2 p.m. Following the ceremony, refreshments will be served and visitors will have an opportunity for a brief tour of the trails. To find the property from County Road 29 in Pakenham Village, drive west on Waba Road for 2.9 km. Turn left on Barr Side Road for 1.6 km, take the first left at Carbine Road and drive 4 km to 867 Carbine Rd. A map with directions can be found on the MMLTC website at www.mmltc.ca. For more information, call 613-278-2939.
EMC lifestyle – More than 180 people turned out Sept. 28 to help the Mississippi Madawaska Land Trust Conservancy (MMLTC) protect High Lonesome Nature Reserve and maintain and develop its trails for public benefit. With Michael Runtz as the keynote speaker, it was a hugely enjoyable and educational evening - and also a financial success for MMLTC, say organizers. The proceeds from the dinner and silent auction, supplemented by three generous private donations, allowed MMLTC to reach its goal of contributing $20,000 to its Stewardship Monitoring Endowment Fund held by the Community Foundation of Ottawa. This amount will be matched under the Ontario Land Trust Alliance/Canadian Community Foundation program Caring for the Land You Love. “(It is) reason indeed to celebrate.” On Sunday, Oct. 21, the public will have an opportunity to attend the High Lonesome dedication ceremony and celebration of the longterm conservation of this new nature reserve. The MMLTC is grateful to the family of the late Barry Spicer who entrusted High Lonesome, Spicer’s beloved 200-acre wilderness property located in the Pakenham Hills, to the organization for conservation in perpetuity. This property is rich in natural values. Three main and several lesser wetlands on the

One bull was a yearling and the other, a two-year old. I watched as the bulls lightly sparred with little effort being put into their shoving contests. The cow browsed and eventually walked into the water, splashing as she moved. With that noise covering my movements, I crept to the edge of the trees, but the older bull still heard me and stared intently my way. I froze and a few minutes passed before I gave another call and moved toward the bog. The bull began approaching, so again I stopped, making sure there was spruce between us. The cow climbed up on the far shore with the younger bull in tow. MICHAEL RUNTZ When my bull ďŹ nally A two-year old bull stares the photographer right in the eye.

EMC news â€“ With moose hunting season under way in Renfrew County, the Ministry of Natural Resources has issued a reminder that hunters should know and follow the rules, and take necessary safety precautions. Residents must have a valid Ontario Hunting Outdoors card and a licence to hunt moose, while non-residents must have a non-resident licence and must meet certain conditions. Non-residents also need an export permit if they plan to take moose out of the province. All hunters mus wear solid hunter orange clothing (minimum of 400 square inches - 2,580 square centimetres) and a hunter orange head cover, except during a â€œbows-onlyâ€? season. A hunter cannot possess a game seal issued to another person. Ontario has a new Moose Tag Transfer Policy; so consult the 2012-2013 Hunting Regulations Summary for more information. Hunters must make sure they are tar-
geting a moose for which they are licensed, and need to be able to distinguish the differences between a bull, cow and calf moose. After a moose is killed, the game seal holder must immediately attach the game seal to the moose in the manner prescribed on the seal, and it must remain attached during transportation. Hunters must disassemble and remove any temporary structures erected on Crown land for hunting moose. PARTY HUNTING REGS:
Party hunting means two or more persons hunting together. All members of the party must hunt together in the same wildlife management unit as the person who holds the seal for the moose being hunted. Hunting party members must be within ďŹ ve kilometres of the seal holder. Each member of the hunting party must be able to communicate reliably
and immediately with other members of the party. Each person in a hunting party must have a valid moose hunting licence. The total number of moose of a speciďŹ ed sex and age, killed by the party, cannot exceed the total number of seals validated for that sex or age that members of the party hold. The person who kills a moose while hunting in a party must immediately notify all other members. As for general safety: tell someone where you will be hunting and when you will be returning; know the weather conditions in the area and dress accordingly; in an emergency, stay calm and stay put; avoid hypothermia and know how to treat it if it strikes; keep hydrated and well-nourished; carry a survival kit at all times; know how to build a ďŹ re in all weather conditions and carry the supplies youâ€™ll need to start one; carry a map and compass or GPS and know how to use them; and never drink alcohol and hunt.

That’s a wrap Shannon Giffin, right, applies the It Works wrap on Kirsten Barry at the fifth annual Wellness and Craft Show at the Nick Smith Centre Sept. 29. Giffin explained that the body wrap is a slimming product that draws toxins out of fat cells. It tightens, tones and helps the skin, “It’s as close to magic as you can get,” she says. Her home-based business serves clients in the Arnprior, Renfrew, Pembroke and Petawawa areas. As well as the body wrap, It Works offers weight-loss and vitamin supplements. Barry was at the show, with Janet Crawford of White Lake, to staff the Arbonne booth, featuring natural botanicallybased anti-aging skin care products.

White Lake artist’s works grace United church Art works depict church then and now with two paintings donated to Trinity-St. Andrew’s United Church john. firstname.lastname@example.org
EMC lifestyle - Two paintings donated by artist David Galbraith of White Lake were dedicated during the anniversary service at Trinity-St. Andrew’s United Church Sept. 30. The paintings depict the
former Renfrew United church (before the fire) and the new building. Rev. Russell Wardell called the paintings “spectacular” and said their “vibrant colour really grabs you.” He also noted paintings have several special elements, including people moving to and from the church, the
historical aspect and the surrounding trees that give the church a “poetic setting.” That wild-woods aspect is a call for people to live with respect for all of nature’s creations, he added. “It’s a great gift to us and our worship life together.” Galbraith, a member of the church’s choir, said one
of the paintings took him two months, the other two weeks to complete. “There went my summer … but it was a good summer,”
he said, adding Rev. Wardell and his wife were instrumental in his work. “I present the paintings to you dedicated to the glory and
praise of God.” Shortly after the dedication of the paintings, Galbraith performed a solo song, The King of Love my Shepherd Is. R0011662322

The attractive and informative guide features points of interest in the Bonnechere River watershed and will assist residents and tourists in learning about, and enjoying and appreciating the area and its natural highlights. The guide is the culmination of a multi-faceted 18-month project, a collaborative initiative

Five of the areas centre on towns that are in or immediately adjacent to the watershed - Renfrew, Douglas, Eganville, Killaloe and Wilno-Barry’s Bay. The other five areas centre on natural features in the watershed - Lake Clear, Golden Lake, Round Lake, the Little Bonnechere River, and headwaters in Algonquin Park. For each area, the guide

EMC lifestyle - NeighbourLink Fountain’s annual fundraising walk/run on Sept. 29 helped raise valuable funds for the organization’s many programs. Sarah Bogar and Marge Eddy, who organized the walk, explained the proceeds from the pledges go toward NeighbourLink operations at the old Alexander Reid school
on Mary Street. The Fountain is run by an alliance of 11 local churches. Among the services provided at the Fountain are a drop-in area for seniors and others who want to socialize over a cup of coffee, a child care program to give parents a break, a thrift store that offers items for free for those who need them, a blessing store, hot lunch available for a donation, and scrapbooking and card-making programs. More
programs are in the works. NeighbourLink has moved to its fall hours, open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays and Tuesdays from 6 to 8 p.m. Bogar said that as NeighbourLink receives some funding from its church sponsors, but none from government, it gratefully accepts public donations all year round. Some supporters have arranged to contribute a monthly amount, she explained.

Renfrew man was charged with impaired driving and driving over 80 mgs. He was released from custody on a promise to appear in court in Renfrew Nov. 28. OPP Constable Mark Condron investigated. On Saturday, Oct. 6 at about 3 a.m., officers attempted to stop a vehicle on Opeongo Road in Renfrew. The vehicle pulled into a private driveway.

certificate or driver’s licence. As well, he had been drinking and failed a roadside alcohol screening tests. The vehicle was towed from the scene and the plates, which were unauthorized for the vehicle, were seized. The male driver was arrested and following breath tests at the detachment the 26-year-old Ottawa man was charged with driving over 80 mgs, driving while under suspension, using plates not authorized, failing to surrender an insurance card, failing to surrender ownership, and driving a motor vehicle with an open container of alcohol. OPERATION IMPACT The OPP report that eight people lost their lives in five separate motor vehicle collisions on Ontario roads and one person was killed in an off-road vehicle incident over the Thanksgiving long weekend. Sadly, four people died in one collision alone, police note. Over the weekend, the OPP took part in Operation Impact, a national initiative aimed to improve road safety, save lives and reduce serious injuries through increased awareness and compliance with traffic safety laws. The OPP targeted speeding, aggressive driving, distracted driving and occupant
restraint during the campaign, with officers laying more than 11,700 charges relating to these four main causal factors in road fatalities. The latest statistics bring the total number of deaths on Ontario roads in 2012 (in OPP jurisdiction) to 269, compared to 225 by the same time last year, a 19.6-per cent increase. SEATBELT CAMPAIGN The OPP has ended its Fall Seat Belt Campaign and has released its preliminary numbers. The campaign ran from Sept. 24 to Oct. 6. Throughout the campaign, officers checked vehicles throughout the province and laid more than 5,000 charges related to seat belt use. Non-compliance with seat belt use remains one of the four major causes of fatalities in motor vehicle collisions along with speeding, impaired driving and driving while distracted, say police. The OPP reminds the public that while the campaign has ended, officers will continue to enforce seat belt laws and all other traffic safety laws throughout the year, in support of their provincial traffic safety program and in their ongoing effort to save lives.

David Watson, the CEO of PlainTree Systems, introduces his Arnprior business to a recent Renfrew County business seminar. Plaintree Systems develops technology and manufactures items for the structural design, aerospace and telecommunications industries.
PlainTree takes part in MP’s business seminar EMC news – PlainTree Systems of Arnprior was one of many Renfrew County businesses participating in an information session in Renfrew recently. Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant thanked the business leaders in the defence, aerospace and nuclear sectors for taking the time to attend the session, calling it an “outstanding success.” “In addition to providing an opportunity for local employers to network by sharing the core activities of their businesses, I was pleased to arrange the participation of federal government officials from the Southern Ontario
to position eastern Ontario as a strong force on the global stage. The participants included AECL, ETM Industries, Mobility Lab, Bubble Technology Industries, HDT Global, PlainTree Systems, Hypernetics, Tyne Engineering, Pacific Safety Products, NuTech Systems, Allan Vanguard, CFB Petawawa, Magellan Aerospace/Haley Industries, GlenRay, Itaxia and PlainTree Systems. FedDev was launched in 2009 by Prime Minister Stephen Harper in response to representations made by Conservative MPs in Eastern Ontario, who made the case for a regional development agency
with a similar mandate to the existing one in northern Ontario. “Canada has weathered the global recession better than most countries,” said Gallant. “Acknowledging that economic growth has been uneven, the Prime Minister agreed that federal leadership was necessary if all regions were to share in the economic recovery. FedDev is our direct response to that reality. “It has been proven that helping existing businesses grow generates more jobs than trying to start new businesses from scratch,” added the MP.

Pharmacists to give flu shots after new legislation EMC news – People will be able to get their ﬂu shots at local pharmacies starting Oct. 15 under provincial changes announced this week. Both Shoppers Drug Mart and Rexall Pharma Plus responded quickly with news releases praising the moves, which they say makes getting a ﬂu shot much more convenient for the public. The province is endeavouring to boost the 33 per cent of people in the province who annually get a ﬂu shot. In some other jurisdictions, such as British Columbia that lets pharmacists give ﬂu shots, the ﬁgure is closer to 50 per cent. Before the change, only doctors, health units and employers were allowed to arrange to give the ﬂu shots. The ﬂu shot is part of a package of health services, including getting certain prescriptions renewed, that people can now get directly from pharmacists. Pharmacists can now also prescribe medication to help people quit smoking, demonstrate
how to use an asthma inhaler or inject insulin, and support patients who have a chronic disease, such as diabetes, monitor their condition Expanding the role of highly trained pharmacists “is part of the provincial government’s Action Plan for Health Care to give Ontarians better access to family doctors, nurse practitioners and other health care providers, to ensure that health care dollars are spent most efﬁciently,” says a news release announcing the changes. In its own news release, Rexall Pharma Plus said its pharmacists are already preparing to provide the ﬂu shot across the province. Rexall Pharma Plus CEO Frank Scorpiniti issued a statement applauding the Ontario government’s announcement that it will expand the role of pharmacists to provide more options for Ontarians’ health care needs. “It will result in greater and more convenient access to ﬂu shots across the province,” said Scorpiniti. “On behalf of the over 700 Rexall Pharma Plus pharmacists located in communities all
across Ontario, we support the Ontario government in its efforts to expand access to essential health services and increase immunization rates across the province, which results in healthier communities and lower overall health care costs.” Pharmacists will be able to provide additional services to patients in a convenient and lower-cost setting, the release says. Meanwhile, in its own new release, Shoppers Drug Mart says it will offer ﬂu vaccination clinics in more than 750 of its stores in Ontario and across Canada. The pharmacy says it supports the announcement expanding the scope of pharmacist’s practice to include administering the ﬂu shot by injection or inhalation to patients ﬁve years of age or older. In anticipation of the new legislation, more than 600 Shoppers Drug Mart pharmacists across the province have already completed their ﬂu vaccination training and ﬂu clinics are being offered in more than 460 stores to help Ontarians prepare for cold and ﬂu season. “Preparation is crucial to avoid getting the
ﬂu,” says Dr. Dorian Lo, Shoppers Drug Mart executive vice-president of pharmacy and health care. “The provincial government’s decision to expand the scope of practice for pharmacists and include them in the ﬂu vaccination system is an important step in helping to make ﬂu vaccinations more accessible for Ontarians.” “Local pharmacists can play an active role in keeping Canadians healthy and are available to answer patients’ questions about the ﬂu virus, and provide personal advice on how to protect against it,” said Victor Wong, Shoppers Drug Mart associate-owner and pharmacist. “Being able to administer the ﬂu shot means that pharmacists are in a better position to provide the best care to patients.” Every year there are new strains of inﬂuenza and new ﬂu vaccines are developed to protect against them, which is why it’s important to get a ﬂu shot every year. According to Health Canada, anywhere from 10 to 25 per cent of Canadians come down with the seasonal ﬂu virus each year.
Diabetes and the importance of looking after the health of your feet grown toenails, warts or slivers, should be treated by a doctor or foot care specialist (such as a podiatrist, chiropodist or experienced foot care nurse). And those with diabetes should have their bare feet checked by a doctor at least once a year, in addition to being screened for neuropathy and loss of circulation. BEST ADVICE
• Do wear well-ﬁtting shoes that are supportive, have low heels and don’t rub or pinch. • Do wear loose ﬁtting socks at night if your feet get cold. • Do elevate your feet when you are sitting. • Do wiggle your toes and move your ankles around for
a few minutes several times a day to improve blood ﬂow in your feet and legs. • Do exercise regularly to improve circulation. • Do inspect your feet daily and in particular, feel for skin temperature differences between your feet. • Don’t wear high heels, pointed-toe shoes, sandals or worn-out shoes. • Don’t wear anything tight around your legs such as tight socks or knee-highs. • Don’t ever go barefoot, even indoors. • Don’t put hot water bottles or heating pads on your feet. • Don’t cross your legs for long periods of time. • Don’t smoke. Smoking decreases circulation and healing, and signiﬁcantly increases the risks of amputa-
tion. • Don’t have pedicures by non-healthcare professionals. - Foot care: a step toward good health, Canadian Diabetes Association The Renfrew County Diabetes Education Program is a regional program that offers diabetes education services across ﬁve hospital sites in Renfrew County - Arnprior Memorial, Deep River & District, Renfrew Victoria, Pembroke Regional and St. Francis Memorial. Services are also offered at nine outreach sites - Arnprior Villa, Quail Creek in Renfrew, Fairﬁeld’s in Eganville, Pikwakanagan in Golden Lake, Rainbow Valley CHC in Killaloe, Whitewater Bromley CHC in Beachburg, Petawawa Centennial FHT, Riverview
Heights (Pembroke) and Supple’s Landing in Pembroke. Diabetes education services including screening, assessment, individual and group classes, follow-up consults, telemedicine services with specialists and public awareness sessions for the community, are provided by diabetes education teams consisting of registered nurses and registered dietitians. The educators work in collaboration with family physicians, endocrinologists, pharmacists, other health care professionals and family mem-
bers to deliver client-centred self-managed care for local individuals living with or at risk of developing diabetes. Referrals to any diabetes education clinic can be selfdirected or physician and provider directed.

EMC lifestyle – Diabetes affects the circulation and immune system, which in turn impairs the body’s ability to heal itself. Over time, diabetes can damage sensory nerves, especially in the hands and feet. As a result, people with diabetes are less likely to feel a foot injury, such as a blister or cut. Unnoticed and untreated, even small foot injuries can quickly become infected, potentially leading to serious complications. To avoid these complications, those with diabetes should see a doctor right away if they experience any swelling, warmth, redness or pain in their legs or feet.

St. Joeâ€™s students to score credits through new hockey skills program EMC sports - Hockey education is now part of the curriculum offered to Grade 9 and 10 students for credits at St. Josephâ€™s Catholic High School (SJCHS) in Renfrew. In a presentation to the Renfrew County Catholic District School Board on Sept. 10, Principal Brennan Trainor outlined the process involved in bringing the Hockey Canada Skills Academy to SJCHS, including endorsements from the Towns of Renfrew and Arnprior and their minor hockey associations, as well as the school board. Once approval was gained other aspects fell nicely into place. Although all teaching/ coaching team members already held hockey coaching levels, academy head instructor Stacey McGregor travelled to Calgary this summer for a week of training that he will share with coaching colleagues. â€œHe is expected by Hockey Canada to pass that knowledge along to others,â€? says Trainor. Another condition of the program is that no child would be refused due to cost, which organizers are offering for $250 per student. â€œOther programs in Calgary charge students as much as $1,600 for the program,â€? comments McGregor. The only extra costs are program jerseys and insurance, and students must have

From left are head instructor Stacey McGregor, principal Brennan Trainor and head instructor Meghan Cahill. all the approved equipment. â€œWe have a system in place to help any student who wants to participate but canâ€™t afford the cost,â€? says Trainor. A reciprocal agreement was reached with the Town of Renfrew for use of the Ma-TeWay Activity Centre five days a week at no cost. The town, in turn, uses the school for some community
activities. Students are on the ice Tuesday, Wednesday and every other Thursday for 90minute sessions. Dryland and skills training take place on off-ice days. Teacher/head instructor Meghan Cahill points out that in addition to developing leadership, organization and co-operation skills, the
Town of Arnprior
program incorporates many of the Catholic graduate expectations, such as being effective communicators and reflective thinkers. Students are expected to be responsible citizens in the community as they commute to and from the rink, and in their use of the facility. There is also a health component to the program. â€œStu-
dents learn about nutrition and healthy eating, fitness and injury prevention,â€? says Cahill. Whereas minor hockey coaches focus mainly on team strategy and game play, McGregor says the program provides an opportunity for students to brush up on their individual skills â€“ puck handling, shooting, and skating.
Students view video clips of themselves to analyze their skating skills and stride. â€œStudents can take the skills learned at the academy and apply them on their minor hockey teams,â€? adds Trainor. Of the 30 students in the program in this inaugural year, McGregor notes there is a wide range of skills from triple A minor hockey level to rep, house league and even six students who have never participated in organized hockey. The on-ice hockey drills require planning to meet this variety of skill levels. â€œWe plan the drills to keep everyone moving at a steady pace and ensure theyâ€™re not waiting in line,â€? says McGregor, adding students are sometimes grouped by ability, but there are also opportunities for peer modelling where high-level players help to teach other students. Volunteers from the community with coaching experience are lending their assistance, and senior students are taking leadership roles through the co-op program. McGregor says guest speakers will also be invited. For example, Trevor Timmins, who has worked in the NHL for 20 years in various positions and is the Montreal Canadiens director of amateur scouting, will give an in-depth look at what his job involves and the role character plays in his draft selections.

EOJHL FALL SHOWCASE Oct. 12-14 Packers vs. Brockville 6 p.m. Friday Packers vs. Casselman, 12:30 p.m. Saturday
Last Chance to Ride the
QUYON FERRY (1969-2012) SUNDAY, NOV. 18
All teams from the four junior B divisions coming to Arnprior this weekend John Carter John.firstname.lastname@example.org
EMC sports – The Arnprior Packers get to play two teams they don’t normally see this weekend. The team is hosting the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League Fall Showcase for the first time this weekend. “The fans should see some quality hockey,” said Packers general manager Shawn Patrick. “It should be a good weekend. I hope we get a lot of local support.” At Tuesday’s Arnprior council meeting, town recreation director Glenn Arthur encouraged councillors and the public to come to the Nick Smith Centre to check out some great hockey. Twenty-two teams will be playing for the league’s four divisions, said Arthur. Each team plays two games with the hometown Arnprior Packers’ games set for Friday at 6 p.m. against Brockville and Saturday at 12:30 p.m. against defending league champion Casselman.
The official opening ceremonies will be held at noon Saturday just prior to the Arnprior game. Some of the games will be broadcast on MyFm Radio. Admission is $10. A large number of scouts from the Ontario and Quebec Junior A leagues and American and Canadian colleges are expected to be on hand. Meanwhile, the Packers split two Thanksgiving weekend home games, edging Stittsville 6-4 last Friday and dropping a 7-1 game to Metro Division-leading Gatineau Sunday. Patrick was pleased that his team continues to do well (41) against Valley Division opponents. “If we can steal points from Metro teams and keeping winning against the Valley, I’ll be happy,” he said. However, he wasn’t happy at Gatineau’s chippy play Sunday. “They play like they belong in a circus,” he said. The split keeps Arnprior (4-4) second behind Stittsville (5-3) in the Valley Division with eight points. MELANSON NEW HEAD COACH
Corrections: wrong figures, appeal, football not dropped EMC news – Town of Arnprior taxpayers contribute about $3.1 million to the County of Renfrew annually, with the town receiving about $600,000 from the County in tax revenue. A story in last week’s Chronicle Guide EMC had the figures mixed up. BYLAW APPEALED
The Ontario Municipal Board appeals referred to in a story in last week’s Arnprior Chronicle Guide EMC were to McNabBraeside’s comprehensive zoning bylaw, not the official plan as indicated in the story and headline. There were no appeals of the township’s official plan. The error resulted from a mistake in editing. BALL NOT DROPPED
Arnprior District High School Junior Redman player Austin Martin didn’t miss the ball as indicated in a cutline under a photo in last week’s Chronicle Guide EMC. Martin was playing defense and made a good play, batting away a pass intended for a St. John’s defender. The Chronicle Guide EMC apologizes for any confusion caused by the errors.
Patrick has stepped down as planned at the team’s head coach to concentrate on his manager duties. That has given him time to find four new players to try out for the team. Three are forwards, as the Packers attempt to find some secondary scoring to supplement their big line. Assistant coach Barry Melanson is taking over as head coach, with Kyle Allard, the brother of Packer scoring star Ethan Allard, joining Danby Suckow as assistant coaches. Ethan Allard played a key role in Friday’s win, scoring a goal on a penalty shot and setting up three others. After Stittsville took the lead in the first period, local product Kyle Knox tied the game on an unassisted marker. Team scoring leader Derrin Lehoux scored assisted by linemates Jared Steege and Lehoux to put the Packers ahead and Allard’s goal made it 3-1. Arnprior went up 4-1 before the end of the second when Lehoux scored shorthanded. Stittsville got back in the game early in the third with two quick goals, but Lehoux’s hat-trick goal restored Arnprior’s two-goal lead. After Stittsville again narrowed the gap, Steege clinched the win, scoring with 1:24 left. Back-up goalie Mike Cheslock earned his first victory of the season in the Packers’ net. Steege scored Arnprior’s only goal against Gatineau, from Lehoux and Allard, as usual. One bright spot for the Packers was they weren’t badly outshot in the game. After this weekend’s Fall Showcase, the next Packer home game will be Sunday, Oct. 21, when the Almonte Thunder come to town for a 7:30 game. Almonte is fourth in the division with a 3-3 record.

Arnprior sweeps to victory over Renfrew in Turkey Bowl EMC sports â€“ Arnprior District High Schoolâ€™s football teams proved they are strong contenders to repeat as Valley champions with victories over arch-rival RCI in Turkey Bowl action Saturday. Playing on their home turf, the senior Redmen won their second straight game over their Renfrew rivals 42-14. The win improved the firstplace Redmenâ€™s record to 4-0.
