EMC news - It’s a frightening story with a positive ending. Sarah-Jane Stavenow is safely back in the arms of her grateful family. The Arnprior native and mother of a son was located Friday, Nov. 23, in Los Angeles after police, family, friends and countless online individuals contributed to efforts to find the missing woman. The 26-year-old Stavenow was not held captive, said her family, but was assaulted and spent days wandering the streets of LA after being denied assistance from the first person she approached, a police officer. The Arnprior District High School graduate left Ottawa airport on Friday, Nov. 16 and gave word that she had landed safely in LA. The family had been desperately trying to contact and locate her after she failed to contact them following that initial message and missed her flight back home Tuesday. In the time she was missing there was no activity on her credit cards, her cell phone appeared to be turned off and her Facebook saw no activity. Wednesday morning, Suzanne Andrews-Sylvestre told the Arnprior Chronicle-Guide that many of the details of the incident could not be discussed at this time but that her daughter is now safe and the family is beyond grateful. See STAVENOW Page 5
EMC news – Arnprior properties has experienced just over eight per cent average assessment increase, according to provincial taxation law. Cecilia Buelow, from the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation’s (MPAC) Pembroke office, paid a visit to Arnprior council Monday, updating councillors and public on this year’s property assessment changes for the Town of Arnprior. Most area property-owners have received their notices in the mail this month. “From a residential taxable-type property, the average change and the average increase, in this case, for a property in that group, is just over an eight per cent change in Arnprior from 2008 to 2012,” Buelow said. Arnprior had the lowest increase in Renfrew County, substantially below the 17 per cent overall average, with some waterfront homes actually dropping in value. Property values in town had risen significantly in the lead-up to the four lanes arriv-
ing, but housing prices have obviously stabilized now the freeway is here. Buelow had attended McNab-Braeside council’s planning advisory committee Nov. 13 to inform councillors that the average residential increase in the township was 12.95 per cent. However, farmland in the township went up an average 35.79 per cent. MPAC is legislated to place a value on every property within the province and classify it for taxation purposes, Buelow explained. Historically speaking, much has changed, she pointed out during a slide-show presentation. For 2006, 2007, 2008 years, MPAC was legislated to place a value on every property reflective of a 2005 market. Legislation was then introduced requiring an update to values to reflect a 2008 market, she continued. That legislation also included a phased-in approach after many complaints by propertyowners when values were skyrocketing in many places. See ASSESSMENTS Page 3

EMC news - Arnprior has added a family component to the special New Yearâ€™s Eve celebration that will act as the grand finale for the townâ€™s 150 anniversary year. Arnprior recreation director Glenn Ar-
thur and Arnprior 150 Committee chair Lynn Grinstead brought back a report to council Monday, originally tabled on Nov. 13, with regards to New Yearâ€™s Eve activities. Council had asked the 150th committee to include more family-friendly events. On Nov. 13, council had agreed to host such an event at the Nick Smith
Centre, with expenses coming from the recreation budget. The committee successfully suggested the addition of free family swimming and skating be offered from 1 to 4 p.m. There will also be a barbecue happening from 4 to 5 p.m. There will be a live band, party favours, and fireworks at midnight. For more, see next weekâ€™s Chronicle Guide EMC.
Assessments to be phased in over four years Continued from front
â€œIt was the first time in Ontarioâ€™s history where, if you had an increase in your assessed value â€“ so in this case reflective of a 2005 to a 2008 market â€“ that increase would be phased in equally over a fouryear period beginning in 2009,â€? she explained. â€œHere we are in 2012 realizing the full effect of 2008â€™s current value assessment. The legislation continues now stating that MPAC must update their values from 2008 to reflect a 2012 value. If there is an increase from 2008 to 2012, it will be phased in equally over a four-year period beginning in 2013.â€? For example, if a property has a value of $200,000, reflective of a 2008 market, theyâ€™ve updated that to a 2012 value, and it now reflects a value of $220,000. Likewise, if a property is decreasing (going from $200,000 to $175,000 for instance) for next yearâ€™s taxation, as well as the following years, it will be taxed at $175,000. A $20,000 increase will be phased in increments of $5,000 starting in 2013. Buelow also provided a perspective of what has occurred over the last four years in Arnprior. For the phased-in approach, it would be a 1.43 per cent average increase for the first year of taxation on a residential property, she explained. â€œSo for 2013, the average residential property is at a 1.4 per cent increase,â€? she said. It is an 8.11 per cent average overall for the residential taxable category, but within that specific residential taxable group, there is a variation of properties, such as condominiums, waterfront homes, vacant land, and triplexes, for instance. When one looks at a single-family home, MPAC has assessed that property
at just under a seven per cent change in the market from 2009 to 2012. â€œItâ€™s relatively in keeping with the over-all change for the municipality,â€? she said. â€œThatâ€™s the majority of the residentialtype properties here. So it makes sense that those numbers are relatively close.â€? There is a 14- to 16-per-cent increase in values for townhomes and semi-detached dwellings, Buelow pointed out. â€œIn 2008, the average value of those types of properties was just under $185,000, whereas now, that average is slightly over the $210,000 mark,â€? she said. Percentages are larger, but we have a different price point here. We didnâ€™t have that much movement from the average price of home in 2008 at just under $210,000, to still under $225,000. â€œThese are the types of changes we are seeing in those types of properties. Whatâ€™s driving the 14 or 15 per cent increase in the semi-detached and townhome market? It could be the price. Because if we look at those properties being relatively in that $180,000 but still just near the $210,000, it lends itself to a different affordability than perhaps someone who wants to go beyond that to a $225,000 market.â€? The ongoing development in the municipality is one of the main factors in the changes, she said, especially those within the semi-detached category and condominiums. For single family homes on the waterfront, of which there are about 60 in Arnprior, there is a five per cent decrease in those values. â€œNot everyone is going out and getting a $500,000 mortgage for those types of properties,â€? she explained. There is a slight adjustment in that market, but itâ€™s relatively small.â€?
In comparison to the County of Renfrew itself, the average increase for a residential property is 17 per cent. â€œSo you have Arnprior coming in much lower than the County,â€? Buelow said. The four-lane highway expansion is one of the other main reasons behind the change in value, she said. â€œArnprior is realizing the effect of that,â€? she commented. â€œFor the last number of years, youâ€™ve seen gradual changes in your municipality, but theyâ€™re relatively stable changes. Youâ€™ve always had that proximity to the capital of Canada. People can still live in small-town Arnprior and still benefit from perhaps from being employed in the city, or having certain leisure activities in the city, but still only being half an hour away. Thatâ€™s been evident in the market for the last 10 years.â€? As for farmland, there will be significant increases in farmland value. In comparison to an eight per cent change in value for residential properties, Arnprior is looking at an under 34 per cent change on properties in the farmland category, she said. The increases in residential properties in Renfrew County range from 8 to 25 per cent with Deep River and Laurentian Valley on the top end. In this area, Greater Madawaska residential property values are up 23.32 per cent, while Admaston/ Bromley properties rose an average 20.52 per cent. Horton is up 15.43 per cent and Renfrew 10.44 per cent. Homeowners have until April 1 to appeal their value estimates by filing a request for reconsideration or an official appeal.

EMC news - Doug Scheels is one special person. This was the message heard around the council chambers as the long-time Arnprior resident was formally congratulated and presented with an Ontario Senior Achievement Award. Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MPP John Yakabuski was on hand to present the award to Scheels, saying he had been looking forward to doing so for a long time. “It’s an honour for me to be here,” he said. “I know everyone here has been looking forward to this, and I’ve certainly been looking forward to this myself.” The Senior Achievement Award is one given out by the province, he explained. “It’s based on a person making significant contributions to their community after the age of 65,” he added.. Respectfully known as the town’s unofficial historian, Scheels was humbled to receive the award with his family by his side. “Doug certainly epitomizes someone who gives to his community,” said Yakabuski. “And it’s not just in the time since he’s been over the age of 65. Doug was very active in this community as a younger person as well and made huge contrbutions to the minor hockey and other organizations as well. “But I guess if I was going to box things up nicely, Doug is somebody who I would say lives and breathes Arnprior. “I don’t know if Doug lived anywhere else but Arnprior, but I don’t think so. He’s born and raised Arnprior, and I don’t think he’s going to live anywhere else but Arnprior.” He never ever missed an opportunity to talk
about what was important in Arnprior, what was important to Arnprior, and what was important for Arnprior. “So for that I think Arnprior should be and is grateful for the contributions of Doug Scheels. Yakabuski told councillors and the audience how there was only 20 recipients each year across the province for this award, noting how prestigious it was. SPECIAL PERSON
“What makes this town really special is the people who live in it,” he concluded. “Doug, you’re one of those people. And you’re a special person today who’s being recognized in a special way with the Ontario Senior Achievement Award.” For his part, Scheels called the award one of the highlights of this year. In August, he received a letter from Toronto advising him that not only had he been nominated for, but he had been selected as one of 20 recipients for the 2012 Ontario Senior Achievement. He was invited to attend a ceremony at Queen’s Park on Oct. 5, but due to circumstances beyond his control, he and his wife were unable to travel to Toronto. “For that reason, I’m grateful to receive the award tonight in Arnprior.,” he said, thanking Mayor Reid and Yakabuski. “I will cherish this award,” he said. Among his greatest accomplishments in the public sphere was Doug’s leadership in the Save the Grove campaign, which spared the Gillies Grove natural forest from development. A former Ontario Hydro employee, he is married to Helen and father to Lynn and Glenn.

Does Sarah understand the scope of the campaign to find her? â€œWeâ€™ve explained to her how big it was and she just broke down,â€? said AndrewsSylvestre. â€œI canâ€™t even express how grateful we are to everybody,â€? she said. Police, media, family, friends and all those who helped online and otherwise are to be commended. When she made the first Facebook post Nov. 20 reaching out about Sarahâ€™s disappearance, she knew word would spread but admits she was a little surprised at just how many people got involved in getting the message out. â€œI said to my husband the night before â€˜I will stop at nothing to find her,â€™â€? she said. By Friday morning, more than 9,000 people belonged to the Facebook group Please Help Find Sarah Jane Stavenow. â€œThe Town of Arnprior is just amazing. Fantastic people,â€? she said. Andrews-Sylvestre was a cheerleader at Arnprior District High School and as everyone began getting involved and then the wonderful news that her daughter had been found came, there was one simple cheer that kept coming back to her. â€œWhen youâ€™re up, youâ€™re up. When youâ€™re down, youâ€™re down. But when youâ€™re up against Arnprior youâ€™re upside down.â€? For now, Stavenow and Kearneyâ€™s Dec. 12 wedding has been put on the backburner. The ordeal has been difficult for Sarahâ€™s fiancĂŠ, as well. â€œHeâ€™s been traumatized, too,â€? said his future motherin-law. And while she is very grateful for the public support, she hopes individuals refrain from spreading rumours or making up their own stories. The investigation will run its course and Sarah has already seen some damaging comments online that have led her to feel sheâ€™s being kicked when sheâ€™s already down.
Sarah-Jane Stavenow, 26, broke down when she learned just how big the campaign to find her was. Her family is expressing thanks to all those involved in spreading the message.

The whole ordeal has been awful for Stavenow, in particular, and also her family, and her mother is upset to think her daughter could have been helped earlier. â€œThere will be an investigation for sure,â€? she said. â€œSarah was able to make her way to a police officer who denied her help. What he told her to do was to go find her embassy.â€? That (police office) is the first person you teach your children to go to for help, said Andrews-Sylvestre in disbelief. Her daughter was not held captive but was assaulted and found herself alone and terrified. Whether there was one or more individual involved in Sarah Janeâ€™s assault is not yet known, said Andrews-Sylvestre. â€œWe donâ€™t even know everything yet; weâ€™re letting her tell us as sheâ€™s ready.â€? Sarah was left for four days wandering the streets trying to find her way to the airport. She was afraid to ask for help

Stavenowâ€™s fiancĂŠ Ryan Kearney, who grew up in South March and attended West Carleton Secondary School, and members of her family were all gathered at her mother and stepfatherâ€™s house, which had become a sort of headquarters in the campaign to find the missing woman. At this point in the efforts, the familyâ€™s phone numbers had been posted on billboards and posters and the odd crank call was getting through, explained Andrews-Sylvestre. After several of these calls in a row, a fateful text came through to Kearneyâ€™s cell. â€œAll the text said was â€˜Ryan â€Śâ€™, because her battery kept dying,â€? said Andrews-Sylvestre. Sarah was out front of the Los Angeles airport, terrified to go in, said her mother. â€œWe asked her â€˜Are you hurt?â€™ And she said â€˜Yeah, a little.â€? The feeling of being so far from her daughter in that time of need is indescribable, said Andrews-Sylvestre. But knowing her daughter was safe and coming home was incredible. Next came the scramble to secure a plane ticket home for Sarah and in the end the family ended up with three tickets in their possession. â€œWe were ready to do whatever we needed to get her back on Canadian soil,â€? said her mother.
after her first experience with the police officer. She did end up finding an old lady who helped her get a cab and put her in the right direction In the days she wandered, every time Sarah would charge her phone, the wealth of messages was quickly killing the battery. The ordeal is unimaginable, said Andrews-Sylvestre. â€œYou canâ€™t look at this like itâ€™s the Town of Arnprior,â€? she said. â€œIf you donâ€™t know where you are and youâ€™re scared, trying to find your way somewhere would be frightening.â€? The family is for the most part grateful for the help theyâ€™ve received. â€œThe Ottawa Police have been fantastic,â€? said AndrewsSylvestre. â€œThey couldnâ€™t have been more helpful. On the LA side, not so much.â€?

Arnprior firefighters honoured in numbers ceremony Sherry Haaima
At left, firefighters whose numbers were honoured, or their family members, gather at the event. Honourees include Brian Jahn, Eldon Robillard, Glenn Styles, Bert Tourangeau, Jack Schultz, Doug Rousselle, Doug Burnette, Bruce Desarmia, Doug Kightley, Dan Smith, Jim Whyte, Ron Sevigny, Tom Burnette and Peter Boyce.
EMC news – It was a very special evening for the Arnprior Fire Department. In the first local event of its kind, the town’s fire chief John Okum joined Arnprior Mayor David Reid, council members, officials, and current and past firefighters and their families in a ceremony that honoured the numbers worn by the men. Okum said the event was one filled with pride. “It was very emotional for many, which illustrated the true ‘brotherhood’ and fire family bonds,” he said. In his address to the large crowd gathered in the garage at the fire station Nov. 21, Okum thanked all those in attendance. “It is so nice to see former firefighters and their families here this evening; as well as family and friends of those who are no longer with us. It is also great to see so many current members with their families to support and help honour those who have helped build a tradition in the Arnprior Fire Department,” he said. Honoured were the numbers worn by members who provided 20-plus years with the Arnprior Fire Department and were serving from 1992 forward. Set against a backdrop of one of the department’s antique trucks and a soon-to-be retired member of the fleet and alongside a display of photographs of the members being honoured, Okum explained the photos were a project initiated by former chief Tom Burnette. “This number-honouring ceremony is another way for today’s generation of firefighters and future generations to remember, honour, and tribute those brothers before them,” said Okum. A highlight of the evening was the unveiling of the plaque that displays a badge for each member recognized during the evening. The plaque will be located at the fire station and badges will be added to the plaque upon the retirement of members who meet the criteria. Mayor Reid and Deputy

Chief Rick Desarmia also spoke and thanked the firefighters for the service and the family members and public for attending. “Your commitment to public safety is to be commended,” said Reid. Among the honourees was Brian Jahn, whose #21 was honoured. “Brian is the individual this evening who was first in and last out. Brian came to the department in December 1961 and hung up the helmet in January of this year,” said Okum. “That gives Brian 50 very dedicated years of service to this department.” Jahn reported to fire chief Cletus Green and worked with various other chiefs during his service period, said Okum. Jahn also held the position of assistant deputy from 1974 until retirement. Former chief Tom Burnette joined Okum in another special presentation to Jahn. “Members who provide exemplary service to the public security in Canada are honoured by the Governor General of Canada. Recipients who provide 20 years of loyal and exemplary service receive a medal and every 10 years after receive a bar to be placed onto the ribbon,” Okum said. Jahn received his third exemplary service bar recognizing him for 50 years of service. HONOUREES
Eldon Robillard #30
At right, retired firefighter Brian Jahn, centre, receives a special presentation from former Arnprior fire chief Tom Burnette, left, and Chief John Okum at the numbers ceremony held last Wednesday evening at the fire hall in Arnprior. On April 2, 1968, under the command of fire chief Stan Tourangeau, Eldon Robillard was taken on the brigade as a regular fireman. Eldon served for 24 years as a volunteer firefighter. Glenn Styles #19 On Aug. 7, 1973, fire chief Len Mills brought two new members onto the department. One of those members was Glenn. Glenn worked with the department for 21 years and helped to mentor many junior members under him. Bert Tourangeau #32 The Tourangeau name certainly was not a new one with the department. Bert was hired by fire chief Stan Tourangeau on May 4, 1970. The motion to have Bert become a fire department member was
unanimous. Jack Schultz #25 Although in the fire service colleagues are referred to as ‘brothers,’ Jack was well known as Uncle Jack. In June 1960, fire chief Cletus Green welcomed Jack to the department to work alongside his true brother Gerry. Jack contributed 35 years as a volunteer, but after retiring as a firefighter, Jack remained an additional period with the department until the end of 2004 where he served as an association member
Doug Rousselle #01 On Feb. 8, 1972 the acting fire chief (Orville Bullard) decided four new members were required and to be advertised in local papers. Tom Burnette nominated Doug to be a new member. Everyone voted in favour. Traditionally, the fire chief was the individual who wears number 1. Just over 20 years ago Chief Burnette decided members could select numbers, But for some reason Doug decided he wanted the number 1. Now Tom and Doug (with the special relationship they have), there was a bit of contention as to who was going to wear number 1. As chief, Tom won that battle, but Doug decided he was going to be zero-one. Doug retired after providing 26 years of service to the department. Doug Burnette #12 Doug was voted in as a member on Oct. 3, 1972 by the members. Fire chief Len Mills noted that Doug’s membership would have a 90-day trial period. The trial period was obviously successful as

Doug was with the department for 27 years before retiring. Bruce Desarmia #4 Fire chief Stan Tourangeau held a meeting on April 4, 1967. At that meeting it was noted that Bruce was to be notified that he was the “call man” as of that evening. That month, there was one meeting and two calls. Bruce would no doubt be very proud of his son Rick for his appointment of deputy chief. Doug Kightley #171 Kightley was one of three individuals introduced to the department on Nov. 5, 1974 by fire chief Len Mills. Kightley was also a member of the Ottawa Fire Service and carried the same number here as he did in Ottawa. Doug retired from Arnprior after 26 years. Dan Smith #31 Dan was voted into the Arnprior Fire Brigade as of Jan. 5, 1971 and was welcomed by fire chief Stan Tourangeau. Dan was a top-notch truck driver and he was a superb pumper operator. He was so good at it because he proved 32 years of dedicated service. Jim Whyte #33 On July 6, 1976, Tom Burnette was fire chief and hired Whyte as the newest member to the department. Whyte was the hands-on kind of guy. He seemed to be everywhere, doing everything, and may even have been our best aerial climber. He was the long-time association secretary where he took minutes and calculated firefighters points. Whyte served for 29 years with the department.
Ron Sevigny #7 On March 2, 1976, fire chief Len Mills hired Sevigny, who Okum said was one of those bulls who gave everything he had when it came to firefighting. Sevigny was a great coach to junior members teaching them good habits and the odd bad one. He provided 30 years of dedicated service to the department. Tom Burnette #1 On May 4, 1965 fire chief Stan Tourangeau brought Burnette in as a call man on the brigade. Burnette was now working alongside his father Pete. He worked his way to assistant chief on Feb. 8, 1972 to fire chief Orville Bullard. Eleven years after joining the department, Burnette took the reins of fire chief and held that position until retiring after 45 years of service. Peter Boyce #28 Peter was hired on April 3, 1985 by fire chief Tom Burnette. Boyce joined the department with firefighting and leadership experience time served in the Ontario fire service. Boyce was another rarity where he wasn’t known as a ‘brother,’ in the fire service. Instead, he was well recognized as ‘mother,’ said Okum. It was his motherly instincts by protecting his troops that gave him that title, the chief added. Boyce moved through the ranks and became captain and then deputy chief. Upon Chief Burnette’s retirement, Boyce was appointed acting chief for a period of time. Boyce recently retired from Arnprior fire department after giving 26 years of service.

Council bids to host orienteering champions firstname.lastname@example.org
EMC news – Arnprior is on the map towards hosting another sporting event. This time in the form of orienteering. The Town of Arnprior’s recreation director, Glenn Arthur, told council on Monday how the town had the opportunity to host the 2014 North American Orienteering Championships, and asked councillors to consider accepting the invitation. “Having them come to us is a definite plus,” he said. The North American Orienteering Championships take place once every two years and only once every four years in Canada. “We’re expecting to get at least 500 to 600 athletes,” said Arthur. The event traditionally takes place in forests, and with the addition of a sprint event, also in parkland settings. Arnprior received a request from the Ottawa Orienteering Club, in coordination with the North American Orienteering Association, to become the host community for the 2014 North American Orienteering Championships. Council eventually agreed to participating in the event. The four events taking place during the orienteering championships include a sprint event, a relay event, middle distance event, and long distance event. Organizers have asked if the town could host the spring and relay portion of the event, while the other two events be held in Carp and the Carp Ridge. Both events Arnprior would host would take place at Robert Simpson Park and the Grove. TRUE EDGE CONTRACT EXTENDED
Council voted to extend the contract to Ture Edge Canada to continue operations at the Nick Smith Centre. Arthur, who called the situation a “winwin” one for the town, asked council to consider extending the life of the contract from Oct. 10, 2012 through to Oct. 9, 2015, which includes a monthly rent of $357.10 per month. The pro shop contract was awarded to True Edge Canada after a public tender in 2006, and has served the community well consistently with its service, said Arthur. Coun. Lynne Grinstead said she would prefer to see the contract go out to tender, out of fairness for other interested parties, but council decided to continue honouring the current agreement. Reeve Walter Stack acknowledged there had been quite a bit of positive comments regarding the pro shop.
Mayor Dave Reid said he had heard comments from people noting how it was quite possibly the best skate sharpener around. For his part, Coun. Lyle Anderson said, “It would be foolish to think about awarding the contract to someone else.” “People in town are happy with it,” said Coun. Ted Strike. “I think we should keep it.” ENERGY SAVERS
The Town of Arnprior is an energy saver. Council approved a recommendation from Arthur to continue with an energy savings contract they entered into with Ainsworth. Arthur revealed the town had actually saved a little over $93,000. An annual report from Ainsworth described how some of the energy savings features the company installed at the Nick Smith Centre – such as pool temperature – was paying off. Additionally, council approved a recommendation to hire a new full-time permanent facilities operator the recreation centre. Arthur said this was necessary to ensure all shift work was covered. Presently, the recreation department is having trouble ensuring hours worked per employee is meeting Employment Standards Act (ESA). The total cost of the new full-time facilities operator would be $54,276.77 and is in line with the budget.
Work was set to begin this week on improving the boat launch at Red Pine Bay on the Ottawa River in McNab-Braeside. Township recreation director Geoff Patterson reported to council last week that the work is expected to be completed by Dec. 15. The new boat launch has been five years in the making. Plans began after boaters and Braeside residents complained about the inadequacies of the current launch. Increased exposure of the park during McNab Days and the available of government grants has led to the project coming to fruition. It includes dredging the area around the launch and taking some scrub bush from the park. Another improvement, an environmentally friendly washroom/shower facility, was added to the park this summer.
Asphalt plant talks to start in earnest in 2013
ADVISORY COMMITTEES John Carter
The town’s CAO has encouraged council to adopt a new committee structure in keeping with the Strategic Planning long-term vision. Michael Wildman explained how the draft Strategic Plan’s Vision 2017 foresees a town offering effective service delivery, is a workplace of choice, and is business friendly. In keeping with the strategic planning exercises, council adopted a new corporate structure, which resulted in the alignment of related roles in order to offer and deliver enhanced services in an efficient and effective way. Wildman told council it came down to three advisory committee model options. At the end of the discussion, council voted for the recommended option, which would see two members of council (chair and vicechair), the Mayor ex-officio, and three to four citizens sit on the proposed Community Development, Corporate Services, and Operations advisory committees. This model would build on the live, work, play theme emerging through the Strategic Plan, said Wildman. “The fact it aligns with our corporate structure makes sense,” said Mayor Dave Reid. Wildman said council has been very active in breaking down the silos.
The Town of Arnprior would like to invite individuals, community groups, educational institutions, and volunteer organizations to nominate someone they believe to be an outstanding volunteer. This volunteer must provide voluntary services within the Town of Arnprior. The Town of Arnprior would like to show their appreciation for a volunteer who has demonstrated exceptional service to their community. Being a volunteer takes much time and effort. The Town of Arnprior recognizes the importance of these people, and how vitally important they are to our community. The Volunteer of the Year will be recognized at a special event in 2013.

EMC news - The completion of the peer reviews of the Miller studies for the company’s application to place a permanent asphalt plant in the Braeside Quarry has revived public interest in the controversial project. However, a series of meetings being held by council to consider the application will not start until January, says McNab-Braeside township CEO Noreen Mellema. Township officials are working with county planning and Miller officials to set up a timetable to allow for public input into the plan. Council has been invited by Miller to tour the Quarry site this Monday afternoon. The company noted that the three newest councillors were not privy to the discussions over the first of the reports that were submitted when the prior council was in office. Mayor Mary Campbell noted that Miller
will hold on public meeting on its plans. Council will also hold at least one and probably more, she said. Council is also in the process of setting up meetings to review the final reports. Those sessions will be open to the public, but aren’t hearing in which the public can participate, Campbell said. “That will come later.” However, residents are welcome to submit written comments at any time and share comments and ask question of council members and the CEO, she noted. Campbell stressed that the reports will be available on the township website. Miller has offered to have its ‘experts’ available to answer questions at the public meeting. That hasn’t sat well with some residents, who are urging council to have the peer review ‘experts’ attend too. However, the planner suggests that is not the normal way to go and having too many experts at a meeting would be confusing, she said.
Arnprior Regional Health and Arnprior & District Family Health Team request pre-qualiﬁcation of General Contractors, Electrical Contractors and Mechanical Contractors for the Pharmacy, Physiotherapy, and Doctors’ Ofﬁces Redevelopment Projects. General Contractors should have experience with hospital renovations with a minimum value of approximately $500,000 to $1.0 million, carried out over multiple phases. Mechanical Contractors should have experience with hospital renovations with mechanical requirements of at least $300,000 and Electrical Contractors should have experience with hospital renovations with electrical requirements of at least $150,000.

â€˜Tis the season to be careful, and tolerant The Christmas season is here â€“ the season of parades, parties, presents and shopping. Itâ€™s also the season of warnings. As the holidays approach we are reminded of the countless dangers we face. Drive safely. Be cautious with Christmas lights. Donâ€™t overspend â€“ the punch from that spiked rum eggnog is nothing compared to the sting of a serious
financial hangover. But while we worry about our physical and financial selves, maybe itâ€™s time to look beyond, to the thing that really matters â€“ our spiritual health. Every year, the hard-working, good-hearted volunteers at the Arnprior Legion organize the Arnprior Santa parade to entertain us all and usher in the Christmas season in this area. Many of the floats bring a spiritual
focus to an often frantic time of year. Take the Glad Tidings Pentecostal Church and Knights of Columbus floats, for example. No mistaking the reason for the season there. They provide a gentle reminder that faith, not festivity nor spending fury, is where our attention should be trained. There has been a lot of stir in recent years by people alarmed that Christmas has lost its meaning. They attack those who dare murmur â€˜Happy
Holidays.â€™ In reality, there is nothing wrong with phrase. Itâ€™s a legitimate wish and no cause for alarm. Same goes for Happy Hanukkah (which is Dec. 9, by the way). Oddly, the loudest voices on such trivial matters are seldom seen at the countless celebrations that best promote the Christmas season, such as Arnprior Hospitalâ€™s tree lighting and the intriguing events the Galilee Centre has and will hold this holiday season. Rather than scream intoler-
antly for everyone to fall in line with oneâ€™s own beliefs, why not be more tolerant, more Christian. Why not move beyond talking the talk and walk the walk. Support your fellow citizens who are working hard to preserve the spiritual wonder of Christmas and plan to attend any number of special events, concerts and tree lightings that lie at the heart of the season. So Merry Christmas and happy holidays!
Get informed, then speak up on asphalt plant application To the Editor: Re: Miller expansion of the Braeside Quarry. I moved to the Braeside region nearly 13 years ago from western Canada. During the last seven of those years I have watched and listened to the process related to the various aspects of Miller Braeside Quarry operation and its proposed expansion. While my observations have been made largely from the sidelines, I wish to express my broad and specific concerns related to the operation generally and the expansion specifically. More broadly, given the vast alluvial aggregate resources that exist in the region, I cannot fathom the initial light going off to suggest we have to quarry away this precious aperture and height of land so critical to our water supply. Specifically, the whole idea of any sort of petrochemical storage, never mind an asphalt production facility, inside a fractured limestone basin is ludicrous. It makes me apoplectic every time I think or hear about it. My perspective is not at all NIMBY. The basis for my concern is very simple - this hydrogeological feature is the womb of our groundwater. There is no social licence to
operate something that puts at risk its intrinsic value and services to our region. But this issue is a two-way street. Where is the citizenry? What shame that not more than four of this municipalityâ€™s citizens could pry themselves out of their complacency to send a strong signal (at the recent meeting with M-B council where Miller presented studies in support of their expansion application) that we need a process and decisions based on unbiased evidence in support of best practices, and not just an over simplified consideration and manipulation of the regulatory framework. As it concerns the path we find ourselves on, there is a thing called â€˜escalation of commitmentâ€™. This is a dangerous phenomenon; and perhaps it has quietly suggested that the idea of putting an asphalt plant inside the womb of our groundwater is increasingly justified, not because it is a good idea, but because of the cumulative investment in a process - despite any and all evidence that illustrates that the cost outweighs the expected benefit. Further, examples abound where operational failures that have resulted in environmental contamination, loss of life and property were not prevented by the technological
niche we have carved out of the planet. They were invariably initiated or escalated by human factors. I urge all to become as informed as possible on this issue. Itâ€™s complicated and there is much information, and much of it is technical. The bulk of the Miller studies, but not yet the latest water and natural environment studies with their peer review reports, are/will be on the township website at www.mcnabbraeside.com. Go to â€˜Informationâ€™, then â€˜Planningâ€™. This is where all the studies are uploaded. The peer review documents are the most important ones to become familiar with. Communicate to council that they must hear the peer review presentations in person. This aspect of the process will be discussed at the next Township council meeting Tuesday, Dec. 4. Touch base with them and this process by coming out or sending them a quick e-mail. It is my estimation that, if the current expansion plans that sit before council go through, somewhere down the line we will be saying â€˜what on Earth were we thinkingâ€™. Mike Demuth Braeside
it will encroach upon the entire area, including Arnprior. The councillor informed me that the subject was mentioned at a recent meeting of the responsible department committee. But it would appear that not a lot of concern was evinced.

Red Pine Bay work upsetting To the Editor: Re. Red Pine Bay, Braeside. We don’t understand the name of this recreation area; was there a red pine growing there once? Today, there is no pine of any sort, barely any tree of any kind left standing. Now that the township bulldozers have been deployed, the place looks like a rough unpaved version of a Wal-mart parking lot! What a barren mess! Uninviting to say the least. Looks like half of the beach itself will be back-filled with God knows what. Next summer, people won’t find shade to
park in, nor hardly a tree to sit under for a picnic or relief from the blazing summer sun! It used to be pleasant to sit and watch the boats go out while having a cool drink. Why do our leaders hate trees and greenery? I’m told Burnstown beach has suffered the same fate. Note to elected officials: waterside recreation areas need to be people-friendly, not just vehicle-friendly. Gigantic barren parking lots just don’t cut it in 2012. Sadly, Marcia MacRae R.R.1, Braeside

Don’t ignore free tree advice Continued from Page 9
Over recent years dutch elm disease has decimated the elm tree stock to the point where they are almost non-existent and we have been told that the same thing will happen to the ash trees. The city of Ottawa has just added $725,000 to their forestry department’s budget to combat these beetles. This should perhaps indicate the seriousness of the matter. The streetscape plan now under consideration by Town Council includes sidewalk tree plantings. It would appear that we have not learned from the plantings done during the last major downtown core renewal. We can’t seem to understand that trees do not grow well in cement. Almost every one of the 50 trees planted was replaced at one time or another at a considerable cost and even to-
day there are very few left. I guess my point is, if we want to look at trees, we should protect what we have. This will, of course, entail some preliminary work. An inventory of the existing mature ash trees within the town limits will need to be undertaken. Perhaps there is not enough stock to cause concern. A knowledgeable person will have to confirm if there is yet any damage. The city of Ottawa has a listing of four approved companies who have the experience to treat infested trees. One should be approached for information on how to proceed with a control program. The cost? Some staff time and free advice from the control companies.

Hens, chicks raise funds for park light standards The annual Hens and Chicks night Nov. 9 attracted a large crowd to the Nick Smith Centre in support of the local Communities in Bloom organization. Funds raised are going toward new light standards in Robert Simpson Park. Among those taking part in the fun evening with a high school theme, in back from left, are Carolyn Spratt, Louise Mulvihill, Barb McKenna, Nancy Kelly-Moore and Lauren Goulet; and in front Karen Robertson and Sally Labrie, most of whom are graduates from the 1960s.
To the Editor:
Well, the fifth annual Hens & Chicks was another ‘crazy’ success. Thanks to all the ladies for getting into the spirit of the night by following the high school theme - the costumes were unique, the band (Bazooka Joe ) got us all up on the dance floor and the prizes, graciously donated by local merchants made for a memorable night. A big shout-out to the Big Horns for their ruthless selling of tickets – amazing. There are so many people to thank for this night - my buddy, Linda Betts, the Nick Smith Centre staff, Julie Hordichuk (decorator extraordinaire!), the hostesses, the bar staff and Michelle of M&Menard Photography. Slowly, the reality of new light standards in Robert Simpson Park is becoming a reality thanks to Arnprior’s Hens and Chicks. Many thanks to all! Louise Mulvihill, chair Communities in Bloom

A tale of two weasels in Algonquin Park
Bats up for discussion
EMC lifestyle - Encountering a wild animal is always exciting, but there are certain kinds that provide greater thrills. Moose are more exciting to meet than groundhogs, black bears considerably more than raccoons. While size is a factor, the excitement level also relates to how often we see the animal. The more infrequent the encounter, the more exciting it is. We donâ€™t see weasels very often, so it is always a thrill to meet one in the wild. Six types of weasels frequent our area. Martens and the misnamed fishers prefer forests and are excellent tree climbers. Long-tailed and shorttailed weasels, which turn white in winter, are found in brushy areas and woodland edges. Waterways are habitat for river otters and mink. Last week I took advantage of the beautiful weather and one dawn launched my canoe in Algonquin Parkâ€™s Lake Travers. The lake was like glass and the perfect reflections of the clouds made it feel as if I was paddling through the sky. Near a rocky point I heard splashing and then bird-like chirps. As I quietly drifted,
EMC news â€“ Is the dreaded white nose syndrome decimating bat populations in this area? Find out at the Macnamara Field Naturalists Clubâ€™s December meeting next Tuesday, Dec. 4. Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) planning ecologist Amy Cameron will give an update on the local bat population at the meeting at 7:30 p.m. at the Arnprior Curling Club. The session will also be the clubâ€™s annual meeting. White nose syndrome has killed more than five million bats in the northeastern U.S. since 2006 and showed up in Ontario in 2010. As bats are an important part of Ontarioâ€™s biodiversity (they eat mosquitoes), the MNR is concerned about the potential impact of the syndrome on Ontarioâ€™s bat population and has been monitoring the situation. Ministry staff are working with researchers, wildlife rehabilitators and the caving community, as well as experts to promote practices that may reduce the risk of spreading the syndrome. The ministry has asked the public to report any unusual activity, such as dead bats and flying outside during the day to the Canadian Cooperative Wildlife Health Centre at 1-866-673-4781. The fungus does not seem to affect humans.
A Mink prepares to enter the water. missing link. I followed the otters, admiring how quickly their fully webbed feet propelled them underwater. Whenever they reappeared on the surface, they would snort their displeasure before smoothly vanishing again, their sleek bodies hardly creating a ripple. Hours later on the opposite shore, I came across a beaver lodge and food pile. As I quietly sat in my canoe taking photos, a mink loped into view. It climbed over the lodge and weaved its way down to the food
pile. Here it dove under the branches, reappearing with a small fish in its mouth. Partially webbed toes and thick hairs provide a minkâ€™s rather small feet with an enlarged surface for swimming. When swimming, mink, unlike otters, remain on the surface. They prefer shallow water and are most often seen wandering the shores of rivers, lakes, and ponds where in summer they catch frogs and snakes. S m a l l
mammals are also eaten and mink are formidable predators of Muskrats. At one point the mink stared intently up the nearby bank. A second and larger mink appeared, sending the one nearest me scampering away. The stranger came down and began exploring the Beaverâ€™s stockpile. Later I came across another mink along the shore.
I reflected on how lucky I was to see three mink and three otters on the same day. It always pays to spend a day slowly exploring a lake by canoe! Recent sightings include a Gyrfalcon near Galetta (Ray Holland). The Nature Number is 613-387-2503; email is email@example.com.
three river otters came into view, raising their heads far above the water to get a better read on me. As they gracefully slid back under the water, I was reminded of how seal-like these aquatic weasels are. That is for good reason: the two aquatic predators share a common evolutionary background. In 2007 vertebrate paleontologist Natalia Rybczynski of the Canadian Museum of Nature found a 20-million-yearold fossil that was part otter, part seal. It was an evolutionary

Robertson honoured with diamond jubilee medal Sherry Haaima Sherry.firstname.lastname@example.org
EMC news – An Arnprior man with a unique skill set has been recognized with a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal. Jamie Robertson received the award for his work on a capsized ﬁshing vessel case in his role as a human resources analyst for the Canadian Coast Guard. “Jamie applied extensive HR management experience and exceptional analytical capability to provide factual data and interpretation to support the Coast Guard’s position related to the L’Acadien II incident,” said Assistant Commissioner Mario Pelletier in his nomination. Robertson began his career with the Canadian Coast Guard, Department of Fisheries and Oceans in 2008. He has also served as the National Chair of the Department of
Fisheries and Oceans/Canadian Coast Guard’s Persons with Disabilities Network. His work with the National Persons with Disabilities Network is another reason he’s being recognized, and it’s a cause not new to the Arnprior native, who has been an advocate ever since he was injured in a car accident in 1994. The crash left him with incomplete paralysis from the waist down. He is mobile with the help of leg braces and a cane. “I have no feeling from the waist down. There’s no sensation, so I have to be careful,” he said. But the impairment hasn’t slowed him down one bit. In fact, it broadened his scope and he found himself with a particular interest in advocating for those with physical challenges. As chair of the National Persons with Disabilities Network, Robertson is able to help improve the lives and the

workplace of valuable government employees. L’ACADIEN II
Robertson’s work as an Operational HR Research and Analysis Ofﬁcer for the Canadian Coast Guard is complicated, but it’s a job he loves. It involves supporting ﬂeet management in the regions, he said, carrying out many facets of HR related analysis on seagoing personnel of the Canadian Coast Guard. “They look for certain requirements,” he said, including seagoing experience, certiﬁcation and the different work systems crew members have worked. L’Acadien II was a tragic case, explained Robertson. “On March 29, 2008, Coast Guard was tasked to a ship that had capsized,” he said. It was a Canadian-registered ﬁshing vessel that sank on March 29, 2008. “I was tasked in support of the Canadian Coast Guard’s position that we had a crew capable on the job,” he said. Robertson’s work conﬁrmed the skills and experience of the crew met with the task at hand. ADVOCATE
Robertson studied human resources management at St. Lawrence College in Kingston following a car accident that changed his life forever and launched an interest in advocating for those with physical challenges. His interest in special needs began following the accident and he worked part-time and volunteered a lot of his time at the college. “Basically I set up the special needs resource department at St. Lawrence College in Kingston,” he said. He brought forward resources not available to students with disabilities that enhanced their ability to learn. Whether it was being available to read exams to students with visual impairment or to ensure access to classes for the physically challenged, purchasing software programs to address the needs of many students in support of their challenges, he worked to improve the life of students. He then returned to Ottawa and worked for Nortel, the City of Ottawa and also the Canadian Health Services Research Foundation. In August 2008 his ca-
Jamie Robertson of Arnprior was recently presented with a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal for his work on a capsized fishing vessel case in his role as a human resources analyst for the Canadian Coast Guard and his work with the National Persons with Disabilities Network. reer with the Canadian Coast Guard began and he couldn’t be more pleased with his daily duties. “I literally race to get to work, day in and day out, and I work under a fantastic leadership,” he said. “And I work on a great team. We work so well together,” he said. The old stereotype of government workers just doesn’t ﬁt with the job Robertson goes to each day. “I’m always quick to say to anyone: ‘Come spend a day with us,’” he said. And while it’s intense work, there are laughs to be had. “It’s a great environment,” said Robertson. News of the award came as a pleasant surprise to Robertson. “It’s very special to be awarded,” he said, “especially as it’s in honour of Her Majesty the Queen’s 60th An-
niversary of accession to the Throne; and in the year of the 50th anniversary of the Canadian Coast Guard. It’s just an honour beyond belief.” As noted by the Master of Ceremonies at the presentation, “the awarding of the medal focuses on the achievements of persons who have helped to build the Canada of today”. It was further stated that “through achievements and sustained contribution, you have distinguished yourselves from others. In fact, careful consideration was taken in selecting you, the recipients. Firstly you were nominated by your peers and then approval was gained by our senior leaders and our Deputy Minister. Moreover, only one ﬁfth of one percent of all Canadians will be recipients of this Award. So you have every reason to be proud of your accomplishments and
the honour that’s bestowed on you today.” A special coincidence for Robertson is the fact a close friend of his also received the award. Fitzroy Harbour’s Karen Taylor was a family acquaintance who visited him while in hospital and shortly thereafter found herself in hospital alongside him, dealing with paralysis of her own. The pair wound up being rehabilitated together and formed a bond that will last a lifetime. “We had to learn to walk again and to adapt to our new realities; and were both fortunate to be able to,” said Robertson. “She will forever be an inspiration to me, I am so proud of her - we both overcame one of the biggest obstacles that could be thrown at anyone in this lifetime.”
Receiving the medal was a tremendous honour, said Jamie Robertson. Pictured at the presentation are, from left, David Bevan, associate deputy minister, Fisheries and Oceans Canada; Claire Dansereau, deputy minister, Fisheries and Oceans Canada, Robertson and Marc Grégoire, Commissioner of the Canadian Coast Guard.

Cramming the cruisers Despite cold Sunday winds, the community responded warmly to the Arnprior OPP and Arnprior and District Cram-A-Cruiser event. OPP officers staffed cruisers in front of two grocery stores while receiving 15 cruiser loads of food and $4,410 in monetary donations. Above, in front of No Frills, Valerie Hemphill makes a donation accepted by OPP Auxiliary Constable Daren Rocque. Not shown is fellow Aux. Const. Greg Geisler, who was helping a shopper whose car had a flat tire. â€œItâ€™s an awesome idea,â€? said Hemphill. â€œItâ€™s a good way to get to know who the OPP officers are. And the cause itself is important, especially at this time of the year.â€? Above right, Arnprior resident Mike Louks makes a food donation to Auxiliary Constables Samantha Corriveau and Rhys Densmore during the Cram-A-Cruiser event in front of the Arnprior Metro store Sunday. â€œThe donations received will help so many families this year during the holiday season,â€? said an Arnprior OPP news release. â€œWe would also like to thank Metro and No Frills grocery stores for their donations.â€?

Arnprior Jr. B Packers comeback falls short John Carter John.email@example.com
EMC sports – The Arnprior Junior B Packers mounted a furious rally last Friday in Perth, but it fell short in a 5-4 loss to the Blue Wings. The Packers fell behind 4-0, but rallied for three straight goals to pull within one. However, Perth sniper Brett Madigan scored his second goal of the game late in the third to give the home side some breathing room. Arnprior rookie star Jared Steege scored with 1:41 left to make it 5-4, but the Packers couldn’t strike for the equalizer as time ran out. Andrew Dekroon, Brock Burge and Corey SUBMITTED/GARTH TEMPLEMAN
EMC lifestyle - If on the evening of Dec. 21, which of course is the longest night of the year, you are in Arnprior, and you think that you see Christmas lights and decorations moving along the sidewalks, do not rush to go to the optician or to your health care provider. You would simply be witnessing runners and walkers taking part in Solstice Fun Walk and Run. Participants will lace up and depart from Galilee Centre in Arnprior at 6 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 21 for a jaunt along the sidewalks. The suggested route will be five kilometres but since this is a fun excursion, participants will have the option of covering more ground or less ground. Other than sensible footwear to help manage the possible slippery spots, runners and walkers will be highly encouraged to wear costumes, Christmas decorations and even the aforementioned Christmas lights.
Arnprior students excel at karate peted in the white/yellow/ orange age 7-9 category and returned home with fourth place in kumite. “It was fun and challenging – I’m looking forward to competing in more tournaments now,” said Dowdall. “Karate is both awesome and challenging. I know I’ve gotten stronger and more flexible since starting training.” Eric Crawford competed in green/purple age 7-9 category and returned home with second place in kata and first place in kumite. Even though it was his birthday that day, he wanted to compete. Paul Crawford competed in green/purple age 10-13 category and returned home with fourth place in kata and first place in kumite. Eric and Paul’s parents, who also train, were happy to see all the participants do so well. “We’re always glad to see how the boys and Arnprior fare at these larger events, especially given that we’re all coming from a small town. We are, as always, very im-
ON THE ROAD
The Packers continue their road trip, playing at Stittsville this Sunday, Dec. 2 and Almonte Dec. 8. Arnprior’s next home game is Sunday, Dec. 9 when Metcalfe comes to town for a 7:30 p.m. game at the Nick Smith Centre.
How will you spend the longest night of the year?
Arnprior School of Karate participants at the National Capital Youth Open Karate championships in Smiths Falls, from left, are Sempei France Guillemette, Paul Crawford, Alexandre Dowdall, Eric Crawford and Sensei Garth Templeman
EMC sports – Three Arnprior School of Karate students tested their skill in forms and defense Nov. 17 at the first National Capital Youth Open Karate Championships tournament at Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute. All three represented Arnprior very well and returned proud of their accomplishments. The day began with a morning seminar from Master M. Saeki Sensei, a seventh degree black belt and the highest ranking Japan Karate Association (JKA) instructor in Canada. Master Saeki introduced those from outside of the JKA Shotokan style to the rules of engagement that were to be used for the rest of the day. The remainder of the morning was dedicated to a qualifying tournament where the top four in each category would continue in the afternoon championship round. All three students from Arnprior School of Karate qualified for afternoon competition. Alexandre Dowdall com-
Chaplin scored the other Packer goals. Kyle Lamothe made 29 saves in the Arnprior net as Perth outshot the Packers 34-33. The loss drops Arnprior into a tie for third place in the tight Valley Division, tied with Stittsville, which has one game in hand. The two are one point behind Renfrew and six back of leading Perth.
pressed with the instruction we all get from the school.” The school instructors, Sensei Garth Templeman and Sempei France Guillemette, congratulated the boys on their achievements. “It takes a lot of courage to compete at a martial arts tournament,” said Sensei Templeman. “We take great pride in helping every student achieve their full potential and we’re thrilled to be a part of a worldwide organization that can provide it. Nothing would make us prouder than to be able to send students to the JKA World’s Shoto Cup.” Although other Shotokanstyle dojos in the Arnprior area were invited, unfortunately they were unable to attend this year. The Arnprior School of Karate, a proud member of the worldwide Japanese Karate Association (JKA), is located at 15 Galvin St. (upstairs in the curling club). For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 613-623-6767.
There will be prizes for the best dressed runners and walkers. In most runs the winner is not known until the end, but here the winner can be safely and accurately announced immediately: The Arnprior and District Food Bank. The entry fee for this event is a donation of a non perishable food item to the Food Bank, that runners are asked to bring to Galilee Centre the evening of the Solstice Run and Walk. The Food Bank is particularly short on items for children’s school lunches; items as individual serving fruit packs, cereal bars, juice Tetra Paks, and so forth. There will also be a cash donation box available for people that would prefer that option. After the run or walk, there will be the availability of hot chocolate, chili, some other hot dishes, breads, salad and sweets in the warmth of Galilee Centre. Good Cheer, Good Food, Fireplace, Warmth, Fel-
lowship, and Christmas Carols for only $15 a person. There is no more beautiful spot in Arnprior for Christmas than this 150 year old jewel when it is decked out in the season’s finery. Please sign up for the Solstice Run and Walk in advance at either the Nick Smith Centre or Galilee Centre. This way you will have the chance to wear your own personalized Solstice Racing Bib. (you can just show up on the 21 and sign up then but you would miss out on the bib). Tickets for the celebration dinner are limited so people are encouraged to get those early at the same two locations. Entry fee is a donation to the Arnprior and District Food Bank to be taken to Galilee Centre evening of the event. Dinner Tickets: $15 a person Entry Forms and Dinner Tickets: Available at Galilee Centre and the Nick Smith Centre. For more informationm call Andy Kalnins 613-622-5464 or Jane Dowd 613-623-9963.

Diabetes myths debunked Karen Roosen Renfrew County diabetes educator
A.J. Grade 8 to hold craft fair Dec. 8 The grade 8 students at AJ Charbonneau Public School are holding a craft sale at their school on Saturday, Dec. 8 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. They anticipate over 30 vendors, fresh wreaths for sale, bacon on a bun and hot chocolate, bake table and raffles. The group hopes to raise money to help cover the cost of their end of the year trip to Toronto, but they want to help as well. Admission to the sale is a donation to the local food bank (nonperishable food item, hats, mittens, scarves, etc). Grade 8s Madelyn Fairfield and Jordan Bigeau promote the sale with a class-made poster.
Drivers warned to beware of winter, RIDE checks EMC news â€“ The Arnprior OPP is urging drivers to be prepared for winter conditions and remember the festive RIDE roadchecks have begun. Along with other detachments around the province, the Arnprior OPP are conducting Festive RIDE checks throughout the holiday season in order enhance public safety. â€œWe would like to remind everyone to use a designated driver or take a cab. This will ensure everyone gets to and from events safely without causing an alcohol-related collision or facing alcohol-related criminal charges. â€œEnjoy the season and remember to celebrate safely.â€? Arnprior OPP also reminds the public that having vehicles ready for the harsh winter weather can go a long way in reducing highway collisions. The OPP has some tips on how to have vehicles winter ready: â€˘ install four winter-rated tires; â€˘ have an ice scraper or snow brush in your vehicle to keep your windows, signals and lights clear; â€˘ top up your windshield washer reservoir and keep an extra one handy; â€˘ keep your fuel tank at least half full so you donâ€™t run out of gas should you become stranded and to prevent condensation from forming in your gas tank. â€˘keep a fully stocked emergency kit in your
vehicle; â€˘ have your vehicle serviced to avoid preventable breakdowns. DRIVE FOR WINTER CONDITIONS
The OPP also urges the public to adjust their driving habits: â€˘ drivers must slow down - speeding too fast for road conditions is the #1 cause of winter collisions; â€˘ drive according to the road and weather conditions; â€˘ leave extra spaces between vehicles - stopping distances are at least doubled on snowy roads and even longer in icy conditions; â€˘ know where you are - if you require help in an emergency it will delay the arrival of emergency responders if you donâ€™t know your location when asked; â€˘ monitor road and weather conditions - plan your trip and check local weather conditions before heading out; â€˘ check the Ministry of Transportation website prior to heading out on any trip during the winter. Please do not call 9-1-1 or the OPP for road reports); instead log onto: www.mto.gov. on.ca/english/traveller/conditions. During the period of Nov. 19 to 25, the Arnprior OPP investigated 54 occurrences.

smaller portion of â€œthe real thingâ€? and go for a walk or exercise afterward. #4 Myth: Fruit is healthy so I can eat as much as I want. Fruits are fantastic, tasty, rich in fibre, and contain many vitamins and minerals. According to Canadaâ€™s Food Guide, most adults (with or without diabetes) need to eat about 3-5 servings each day (assuming you split your vegetables and fruit servings 50-50). A serving isnâ€™t as big as most of us think. Half a cup of chopped fruit, a small orange or half a mediumsized banana each count as one serving. Polish off two cups of fruit salad and you may be done for the day. Fruits are not all created equal on the carbohydrate scale. Those with a higher water content such as berries and melons tend to be lower in carbohydrates compared to other fruits. Two cups of strawberries, half a cup of grapes, one cup of blueberries, one small apple or one medium-sized pear each contain about the same carbohydrates per serving (15 grams or three teaspoons worth of sugar). The trick to healthy fruit eating: limit it to one Canadaâ€™s Food Guide sized portion per meal or snack. Need more diabetes myths debunked? Are you overdue for your â€˜diabetes tune- upâ€™?

EMC lifestyle - Itâ€™s amazing how much information and advice is available to you through personal contacts and social media when you are first diagnosed with diabetes. Suddenly everyone has an opinion and is trying to guide you in your new diabetic lifestyle. You may be still reeling from this new diagnosis while you are bombarded with advice such as: â€˜donâ€™t eat anything whiteâ€™, â€˜avoid all sugarâ€™, â€˜donâ€™t eat carrots - they are full of sugar, and number one in the (imaginary) â€˜Diabetes Food Rule Bookâ€™, â€˜avoid eating carbohydrates at all costsâ€™. So letâ€™s examine five common diabetes myths that professionals are asked about on a daily basis. #1 Myth: You need to avoid all carbohydrates. Carbohydrates are an essential part of everyoneâ€™s meal plan. People with diabetes wouldnâ€™t have much to eat if they followed this rule. Most foods contain some carbohydrates (with the exception of meats, fats, cheese, and some vegetables). If a food contains flour, grains, milk, fruit, or starchy vegetables such as potatoes or corn, it contains carbohydrates. According to the Canadian Diabetes Association, 45-60 per cent of our daily calories should come from carbohydrates, so for the moderately active adult that works out to 180 to 300 grams each day (or 60 to 100 grams/meal). What does 60 grams of carbohydrates look like? Two cups of cooked pasta, one litre of milk or three large bananas will each flood your blood stream with about 60 grams of carbs (or the equivalent of 12 teaspoons of sugar). The bottom line is that we canâ€™t avoid carbohydrates. The trick is to choose healthy serving sizes of carbohydrate rich foods and to check your
blood glucose two hours after your meal to ensure your levels are within the recommended target values. #2 Myth: I got diabetes because I am overweight. Although being overweight does increase your risk for developing diabetes, this is not the only cause of diabetes. Other factors such as family history, ethnicity and age may also play a large role. Losing weight or waist line inches by being more active and/or eating less may help normalize your blood glucose and slow the progression of type 2 diabetes. It is important to remember that many people who are overweight will never develop diabetes and there are many people who are of a healthy weight that will develop diabetes. #3 Myth: People with diabetes need to eat â€˜special diabetic foodsâ€™. People with diabetes can eat regular food similar to those without diabetes. Sweets and chocolate are no more taboo to people with or without diabetes. They can usually fit into a healthy meal plan. Often the more costly â€œdiabeticâ€? versions of food contain less sugar, but they are often made with ingredients that are high in carbohydrates such as flour in baked goods or milk in ice cream. They may also have added sugar alcohols that will still raise blood glucose and may have a laxative effect if you overindulge in them. The trick is to enjoy a

EMC news â€“ Now itâ€™s the turn of elementary public school teachers to mount a work-to-rule campaign to protest the provincial governmentâ€™s Bill 115. Most of the locals of the Elementary Teachersâ€™ Federation of Ontario will be in a position to strike on Monday, Dec. 3 after strongly supporting a strike vote in September. However, they are not expected to strike, but follow in the moderate footsteps of high school teachers who have been implementing a limited workto-rule campaign for most of November. Students at Arnprior District High School have not been adversely affected by the campaign. Extra-curriculars such as football, basketball and volleyball have continued as normal, and the student play Once Upon a Mattress hits the stage this week. Concerns by the school board that student safety could be compromised have not materialized. The teacher protests are also expected to be moderated because some units have come to agreements with their school boards, ending the high school work-torule campaigns in those districts. However, the goodwill raised by the agreements was dashed Tuesday when the secondary teachers union broke off talks when the

nored in the talks. CUPE has also joined the teachers in trying to overturn the legislation in court. DOCTORS AGREEMENT
The provincial government has reached a tentative agreement on a new physician services agreement that would run to March 2014. The Ontario Medical Association board has unanimously recommended the agreement to its members, who will vote on it in early December. The agreement will help the government move toward modernizing the delivery of health care and lowering wait times through e-consultations, enabling patients to communicate with their doctor more easily, allowing for more virtual connections between family doctors and specialists, and an expansion of telemedicine services. New investments will expand access to family doctors for seniors and patients with higher needs, including an expansion of house calls. The province says savings from physician-influenced health system reforms will allow the physician services budget to increase by a cumulative $100 million over two years. These savings will be used to help new doctors join the health care system.

province refused to ratify deals made by teachers and boards because they werenâ€™t all the same. Elementary teachers are expected to, at the very least, arrive no sooner than 30 minutes before class starts and leave no later than 30 minutes after students are dismissed. In a release Wednesday, the elementary teachersâ€™ federation said it will give parents 72 hoursâ€™ notice of any strikes planned for December. â€œIt is unfortunate that we have been placed in the position of having to strike by Education Minister Laurel Broten, but we will provide parents with ample notice to ensure the safety of students,â€? said ETFO president Sam Hammond. Despite the agreements in some districts, teachers are still angry at Bill 115, which they call anti-democratic. They are upset at losing sick day benefits and having bargaining rights restricted. CUPE school board workers have also entered the fray, voting 88 per cent province-wide in favour of strike action to back up their demand for negotiated settlements and not contracts imposed by the provincial government under the new legislation. Renfrew County CUPE workers held a noisy protest last week in Pembroke to express their anger with the government. CUPE workers have so far been ig-

Here at St. Josephâ€™s High School, we get into the Christmas spirit a little early. Every year around this time, the school community comes together to put Christ into Christmas. Operation Christmas Child is an annual project taken on by the Pastoral Team. Students pick up shoe boxes and fill them with toys, school supplies, hygiene items and clothing. The boxes are then sent to developing countries and given to children who would not otherwise receive any gifts on Christmas morning. St. Joeâ€™s donated 24 shoeboxes to Operation Christmas Child. Up until Christmas, new and gently used toys will be collected at the school in front of the chapel. These toys will be given to the children of local families who are struggling during this holiday season. Anyone is welcome to bring toys in and support this cause. St. Joeâ€™s is once again supporting Renfrew Countyâ€™s Child Poverty Action Network. CPAN is currently running Operation Snowsuit to make winter enjoyable for all children in Renfrew County. Any new or gently used snowsuits, boots, hats and mittens can be dropped off at St. Joeâ€™s up until Dec. 21. They will be donated to local children in need of some warmth during these chilly months. The support from the community is much appreciated! Although December is an exciting month leading up to Christmas, it is also a time to remember those less fortunate than us. By giving to others and sharing our good fortune, we are remembering the true meaning of Christmas.

ADHS presents Once Upon a Mattress Maximilian Moore Co-op student
EMC events - Arnprior District High School’s Performing Arts premiers its newest musical this week. ‘Once Upon a Mattress’ debuts today (Thursday) at 7 p.m. at the high school. There will also be performances on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 30 and Dec. 1. It’s a vintage tale all are familiar with, as ‘The Princess of the Pea’ is the inspiration for the musical parody. It’s an adaptation at its finest. This peculiar fairy tale is narrated by a peppy minstrel who recalls the events as they happened. An iron-willed maiden known as Princess Winnifred, the Prince’s desire, a mute King Sextamus and a domineering Queen Aggravain bent on the prevention of her son, the Prince, in finding his true love quite literally sets the stage for a dazzling performance. The play features perilous journeys and sort of star-crossed love, riddled with deception, lies, jealousy, and a strong emphasis on humour and witty remarks. “We’ve worked so hard,” said Justine Walton, stage manager for the musical. “Hours and hours spent in the making of it.

QUICK CHANGE SCAM
The OPP are warning businesses to be wary after a female quick change scam artist struck in the area on Saturday, Nov. 26. At about 6:30 p.m., the female paid for some groceries at a Renfrew business. She then handed the cashier a quantity of new $50 bills and requested change. The scammer was given the change in $20 bills. The female then became upset, caused a scene and demanded the change in $5 bills. When the cashier refused, the female demanded her $50 bills be returned. After the female left, the cashier realized that not all of the $20 bills were returned. The female is described as mid-40s and East Indian.
BE ON LOOK-OUT
Police have issued signs to retail clerks to watch for: people requesting change for large denominations of cash, who then change their mind and request different bills, and people causing a scene in an effort to cause cashiers to rush to please them. â€œAlways count all bills carefully, and for large bill exchanges request customers attend the bank. If someone is acting suspicious, call the OPP at 1-888310-1122.â€?

MyFM makes Profit 200 list again Peter Clark email@example.com
My Broadcasting Corporation (MBC), the business that operates myFM radio stations in Arnprior and across Ontario, has been honoured with selection to the Profit 200 list for a second year in a row. “We were recognized by Profit Magazine as one of Canada’s fastest-growing business,” said MBC president Jon Pole. Profit 200 ranks the country’s fastest-growing companies by fiveyear revenue growth and profiles the country’s most successful growth companies. “Getting on the list is an honour, but staying on the list is pretty good. Hoping to stay on one or two more years is a plan,” Pole added. MBC operates radio stations in 12 markets across Ontario, but that number is about to rise. “We recently applied for a station in Allis-
ton, and purchased the Simcoe radio station. That brings us to 14 stations, and it all started from the heart of the (Ottawa) Valley,” Pole explained. MyFM is also awaiting CRTC approval to launch a new station in Orangeville. Pole says MBC’s success can be attributed to “our outstanding team of broadcasters and our intense involvement in our communities.” He thanks employees, partners and customers for helping to make this achievement possible. The broadcasting of Friday night hockey games has contributed to the stations’ success, Pole noted. MyFM stations cover teams with play-by-play in several markets including Arnprior. “MBC is positioned for further growth as we expand to new markets and continue to build our group,” he said. We are very optimistic about our business moving forward.”

MP CHERYL GALLANT
EMC news - NATO’s Parliamentary Assembly has elected Renfrew-NipissingPembroke MP Cheryl Gallant as one of the assembly’s ﬁve vice-presidents. Gallant, who chairs the Canadian NATO Parliamentary Association, was in Prague as head of delegation to the 58th annual session of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly. “I am pleased to thank my nominators, Mike Turner, head of the U.S. delegation; Karl Lamers, president of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly; and Senator Pierre Claude Noel of Canada, who serves as treasurer of the assembly,” she said. Gallant will be joined by Nicole Ameline of France, Giorgio La Malfa of Italy, Julio Miranda Calha of Portugal and outgoing president Karl Lamers of Germany who stepped down at the end of the second one-year term. “Some governments are targeting the defence sector for excessive spending cuts that could undermine European security and erode European and Alliance solidarity,” Gallant noted, speaking about a resolution adopted by the assembly as it wrapped up its four-day annual session. A news release from Gallant’s ofﬁce said NATO’s secretary general Ander Fogh Rasmussen made concern over budget cuts the central theme of his speech to the assembly, “He appealed to the assembly’s 257 lawmakers from al-
lied nations to convince governments and the public of the need to invest in effective defences,” the release said. “He used his speech to the assembly to conﬁrm NATO will do what it takes to protect and defend Turkey from the spillovers of the violence in Syria. He told legislators that the Alliance has all plans in place needed to provide that protection.” The assembly adopted a resolution expressing solidarity with Turkey and urging allied governments to assist the Syrian opposition to overcome divisions, curb the inﬂuence of extremists and put an end to human rights violations. The news release from Gallant’s ofﬁce quotes Canadian Senator Raynell Andreychuk who presented the resolution as saying: “International inaction is only helping increase the duress of the Syrian people and jeopardizes regional security in the long term. The cost of international inaction is rising by the day, not only for Syria and for the region, but for our security as well.” The news release said the assembly also passed resolutions urging more sanctions on Iran if it continues to avoid substantial talks on its nuclear program, pledging support for democratic institutions in the Middle East and North Africa, and reconﬁrming NATO’s continued commitment to Afghanistan after the end of the ISAF military mission in 2014.

Town of Arnprior WINTER CONTROL QUESTIONS & ANSWERS WHAT IS â€œWINTER CONTROLâ€??
WHY CANâ€™T THE TOWN REMOVE SNOW FROM MY DRIVEWAY ENTRANCE?
Winter control includes planning and scheduling of processes related to the maintenance of roads during winter conditions, as well as, undertaking the actual process which includes, snow plowing, snow removal, sanding and salting, sidewalks and clearing of hydrants.
There would be a significant investment in equipment and increase in the winter control budget to remove snow from over 3,500 entrances in Arnprior. The present service is the most economical to the taxpayer.
WHICH STREETS AND SIDEWALKS GET PLOWED FIRST AND WHY?
When shoveling your driveway, we suggest that you pile the snow on the left side of the driveway (facing the property), NOT on the roadway. This will give you a better line of vision of oncoming traffic, and when our plows go by we will not drag your shoveled piles back into your driveway entrance.
Priority roads carry the higher volumes of traffic and are most easily identified as arterial (main) roads or collector (secondary) roads. These are the roads people use to get in and out of town, to business areas, medical facilities and schools. After priority roads, the route is established to plow, sand or salt in the most timely and effective manner.
WHY CANâ€™T THE TOWN REMOVE THE SNOW FROM THE SIDEWALK IN FRONT OF MY PROPERTY?
WHY SPREAD SALT ON THE ROADS BEFORE PLOWING?
As with driveway snow clearing, when you consider the length of sidewalks in the Town, it is KVTUUPPDPTUMZBOEUJNFDPOTVNJOHUPVTFBEEJUJPOBMQFPQMFBOEFRVJQNFOUUPQFSGPSNUIJT service for all areas.
The Town spreads rock salt on streets with minimal snow cover prior to plowing. The salt is spread down the centre of the road in a fairly narrow band. The snow assists the salt through a chemical reaction, to become a brine (i.e. liquid).
Although you are not required to clear the sidewalk in front of your home, it does help to reduce the amount of snow volume in your driveway when the plow passes by. Also, you are providing a clear and safer access for residents using the sidewalk.
The liquid (rock salt & snow) helps prevent snow and ice from bonding to the road surface, improving traction. The salt remains on the driving portion of the roadway.
MAY I PLACE THE SNOW FROM MY DRIVEWAY ONTO THE TRAVELED PORTION OF THE STREET?
When the plows come by, mid-stream or end of the storm, the snow is easily plowed and does not stick to the road surface.
NO. Placing snow on the traveled portion of the roadway is not permitted under the Townâ€™s By-law. This regulation helps to ensure that potentially dangerous situations for motorists are avoided.
This process is not as advanced as spraying (anti-icing) of magnesium chloride on streets in advance of a snow storm to improve road safety. Magnesium chloride liquid is applied at various concentrations depending on temperature and anticipated volumes of snow. WHY ARE THERE PILES OF SNOW ALONG THE EDGE OF THE ROAD? Snow is plowed to the edge of the road by the sander truck as well as the sidewalk plow. This creates a pile or windrow along the edge (curbline) of the road for future snow removal (snow blower &/or loader). This is only undertaken on streets where we have snow removal operations. Generally in the evening or overnight, the blower will travel the roadside, blowing the snow into trucks to be transported to the snow dump. WHY DOES THE PLOW GO BY ONCE, AND AFTER I CLEAN MY SIDEWALKS AND DRIVEWAY, THE PLOW COMES BY AGAIN? The sander trucks are efficient to clear a single lane and get traffic moving, then on a priority basis, snow equipment will come back to your street and plow the rest of the street to the curbs or back of sidewalks. This not only clears sidewalks in areas where we do not undertake â€˜sidewalk clearing / snow removalâ€™, but also ensures adequate storage for future snowfalls. A sander truck with a plow and wing spans only 16â€™. If plows are angled, this distance is reduced. This typically requires a sander truck to travel a roadway 4 times (2 times each direction). WHY CANâ€™T THE TRUCKS PLOW ALL THE SNOW TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE STREET WHERE THERE ARE NO SIDEWALKS OR DRIVEWAY? Snowplows are designed to plow snow to the right hand side. In order to plow all the snow to one side, the equipment would have to drive on the wrong side of the road creating an unsafe traffic situation and this would take more time which means the streets not serviced yet would have to wait longer. THERE IS ALWAYS A VEHICLE PARKED ON THE STREET AND THE PLOW MAKES A MESS TRYING TO GET AROUND IT. CANâ€™T YOU HAVE IT TOWED AWAY? During the day, unless the street is posted as â€œNo Parkingâ€? or has specific parking restrictions, it is legal to park on the road. However, by-law 6000-11 states that no person shall park a vehicle on any roadway during the months of December, January, February and March (December 1 to March 31) whether attended or unattended between the hours of 2:00 am and 7:00 am.
I HAVE TROUBLE SHOVELING MY SIDEWALK AND/OR DRIVEWAY. WHAT CAN I DO? Hopefully a friend, neighbour or a relative will be able to assist you. A young person in the neighbourhood could be hired for a small fee or a local community group or church may have a volunteer who will lend a helping hand. There are also a number of private snow DMFBSJOHDPOUSBDUPSTXIPQSPWJEFUIJTTFSWJDF$IFDLUIF:FMMPX1BHFTGPSMJTUJOHT THE SNOW BANK AT THE STREET CORNER IS TOO HIGH AND I CANNOT SEE ONCOMING TRAFFIC. WHAT CAN BE DONE? Every attempt is made to keep snow banks at corners to a minimum and is done between snowfall events. Special concerns should be directed to the Public Works Department at 613-623-4231. I HAVE TO GET OUT OF MY DRIVEWAY FOR WORK / AN APPOINTMENT / ETC. AND THE STREET HAS NOT BEEN PLOWED. WHAT SHOULD I DO? During periods of heavy snowfalls, there may be delays. It is always best to plan ahead. If you know it is going to snow, leave yourself an extra hour or so when travelling in winter conditions. Donâ€™t drive unless absolutely necessary, and please, be patient. If you must drive, please ensure your vehicle is equipped with appropriate tires and maintained properly for winter conditions (i.e. tires, fuel, windshield wiper blades and washer fluid, anti-freeze, blankets, etc.). WHAT ABOUT THE FIRE HYDRANT IN FRONT OF MY HOUSE? Obstructed fire hydrants can cause a delay in fire fighting and rescue operations. The Town clears snow that is obstructing access to fire hydrants as soon as feasible, however due to limited equipment and operators, this may not always be completed as quickly as we would like. Residents are urged to ensure that fire hydrants, as well as fire escapes, are clear of obstructions and snow accumulation. WHY ARENâ€™T THE TRUCKS ALWAYS OUT PLOWING WHEN SNOWING? "TXJUIBOZKPC FNQMPZFFTBSFSFTUSJDUFEVOEFSMFHJTMBUJPO UPXPSLBNBYJNVNOVNCFS of hours. Winter control schedules take into account weather conditions, air and roadway temperature, weather station data, available staff and equipment. The Town has contracted drivers and/or equipment to assist in winter control, as required. WHY DOES WATER POND AROUND THE CATCHBASINS?
One of the main obstacles for equipment operators is parked vehicles. Once snow starts, removing your vehicles from the street until the roads are cleared will allow the operators to remove the snow more efficiently.
Snow, ice and debris from roads and sidewalks can block catch basins (water drains). When this occurs, the possibility exists that melting snow will have nowhere to drain and create flood like conditions.
I LIVE ON A CORNER LOT. WHY DOES THE PLOW PUT SO MUCH SNOW IN MY DRIVEWAY?
The severity of potential flooding is determined by the snow volumes, how quickly the snow melts and how much rain is associated with that melt.
Residents living on corner lots or the first on the right of an intersection usually get more snow deposited in their driveways. When the snowplow turns right it sweeps a much larger area of the road than when it is traveling in a straight line, as well, the snow also does not discharge from the plow truck. Turning right effectively makes the plow push most of the snow ahead instead of moving it from the centre of the road to the side. The first property and driveway encountered after the plow straightens out usually gets more snow than others in the immediate area.
Maintaining open drains (covers exposed) is key to reducing potential flood conditions. Do not pile snow on top of drains, and clear leaves and debris from around the cover in the fall and spring.
WHY IS THERE MORE SNOW ON MY SIDE OF THE STREET OR I GET MORE SNOW DUMPED IN MY DRIVEWAY THAN MY NEIGHBOUR? There are several factors that affect why one area has more volume than another, including: r 4VOTIBEF r %JSFDUJPOIPNFGBDFT TPVUI OPSUI FBTU PSXFTU

Monster truck owner, township disagree on access John Carter John.email@example.com
EMC news – The Grinch was in Terry Thompson’s monster truck during the Arnprior Legion Santa parade Saturday, but it is the Township of McNab-Braeside that is the real Grinch, he claims. Thompson said the truck almost didn’t make the parade after the township refused to let him use a back access to his Mill Ridge Road property that crosses municipal property. However, the township said it was just following rules and protecting taxpayers from possible liability. It’s not the ﬁrst time Thompson has been in conﬂict with the township. He tried to hold a motocross race on his property in the summer, but it was nixed by the township because he didn’t have an event permit or the proper zoning for such an event. Thompson was also charged after having a musical get-together on his property in June. He appeared in court last Friday and was ﬁned $1,000 for holding a concert on property that isn’t properly zoned for it. A charge of running
a campground on the property was dropped. Thompson argued that the June event a gathering of friends, but the township pointed out that he was charging for the concert. As for the back entrance, he applied back in 2003 to move vehicles across township property to give his property a second access. However, McNab-Braeside council, citing liability and trafﬁc concerns, denied the request. After receiving complaints from neighbours this summer that four-wheelers and other vehicles were using the back access, the township placed a locked gate in the fence dividing municipal and Thompson’s properties to stop the trafﬁc. He asked last week that he be allowed to unlock the gate and cross the township property with his monster truck, so it could participate in the Arnprior parade. Council again declined. Thompson, who maintains the truck won’t ﬁt down his main driveway, says he had to make break in another part of his fence to enable his truck to be placed on a ﬂatbed for the trip to Arnprior. It was on a curvy stretch of Mill Ridge Road, so it wasn’t a very safe spot, he added.
Colin Kopetoske and his brother played Grinches aboard Terry Thompson’s monster truck in the Arnprior Legion Santa Parade Saturday.
Santa comes to town Among the most popular entries in Arnprior Santa parade were Santa Claus, of course, and the refurbished old fire truck that used to be in the Arnprior Museum. Left, retired Arnprior firefighters Peter Boyce and Brian Jahn with deputy chief Rick Desarmia.

Custom Picture Framing business opens in Arnprior Carol McGrath
EMC business – For 22 years Cindy Hipkin has been doing custom picture framing. As a child growing up near Barrie, she had a precocious interest in oil painting. Captivated by this attraction to art, she was led as a teenager to the Interior Design program at Humber College. After a year in attendance there, she happened to go into a local art gallery seeking out frames for some of her paintings. The gallery owner hired her on the spot, and she spent the next six years familiarizing herself with a wide variety of art styles. She discovered quickly she had a real ability and enjoyment for framing not only her own, but also other artists’ work. During that time she attended many professional art framing conferences as far away as Chicago, including doing the set-ups for the charming rural

job brought Cindy to Arnprior and she started thinking about getting some part-time work. Seeing a sign outside the Arnprior Colour Centre that said they not only sold paint and wallpaper, but also did ‘custom framing’, she went in, found out they needed someone, and again was hired on the spot. This time, she settled in for 16 years. During that time the business expanded, opening a second location called ‘Be Creative’ on John Street, specializing in crafts and framing. “I was always artsy and crafty with my kids.” Hipkin laughed. “I always loved it when it was project time.Most parents dread that.” The two stores were eventually amalgamated into one larger one on McLachlin Street and when the owners, Peter and Joan Kelly, closed the business earlier this year, Hipkin decided it was time to follow a growing entrepreneurial spirit and open her own business, CJ Can Frame It. “It’s something I’ve always done, that I’ve always enjoyed doing,” Hipkin said with enthusiasm. “I like coming up with different ideas for people. You can make or break a picture by the framing. There are fads … one year it’s clean and crisp, and another year everyone’s going with dark matte boards. “I deal more frequently with the purchaser than with the actual artist because there’s a context the artwork will be in. I ask people where they’re going to hang it, what colour the walls are … I want to get a general idea of the space. Some people will bring in pieces of fabric or paint chips.” When it comes to cost, time is the big factor. It takes as much time to frame with cheap materials as it does to work with the higher grade ones. For a person on a seriously tight budget, a precut matte in a standard dollar store frame may do for utilitarian purposes, but you won’t have the benefit of the experienced framer’s eye and hand. Like anything else, it can be expensive but a range of choices is available. Custom framing work takes both time and precise equipment to do a
superb job. Hipkin has certainly had her creative challenges over the years. She’s framed not only painted or printed artwork and special documents of all kinds such as old deeds, athletic awards, papal blessings or graduation certificates, but more unusual things as well, such as collections of fly fishing hooks, old hand-made square head nails, Legion pins and war medallions. There have been pieces that commemorate special events such as weddings, anniversaries, christenings or retirements. Sometimes people put together carefully chosen items as a sort of healing ceremony to deal with issues of loss. These Cindy can meaningfully arrange, grouped in a shadow box frame for display. One beloved grandfather’s war medals framed together with a newspaper article about his safe return home became a memento of cherished family history, as did a well-worn hockey jersey. Hipkin remembers the jersey as being a job that was particularly tricky but so successful that she was asked to do several more. For herself, Hipkin made a shadow box frame for a precious fine bone china cup and saucer that her grandmother gave her, along with a favourite photograph of her granny. When asked what was the hardest thing that she was ever asked to frame, Hipkin looks surprised, then thoughtful, and answers: “Honestly, I can’t think of one. I enjoy the creativity. I enjoy just making it work.” Her skill in “making it work” led one prominent local businessman to tell her: “You take so much pride in your work, I just won’t take my work to anyone but you.” Though the actual framing is done in a home studio tucked into a busy household accommodating three “almost” adult children, Hipkin’s client consultations will be held by appointment only in a small centrally located office in the lower level of the main building of the Galilee Centre where people can see samples of her work. To contact her, call 613552-1263 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
