EMC news – Many parents had to scramble to find temporary child care today (Thursday) as Renfrew County’s public school elementary teachers conducted a oneday walkout. As promised, the Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario (ETFO) gave 72 hours notice, announcing Monday the series of rotating one-day walkouts to protest the provincial government’s Bill 115 would come to Renfrew County Dec. 13. It was the second day off this week for most local students, as school buses were cancelled throughout the district Monday because of the freezing rain. The teacher walkouts began Monday in three districts and continued all week with the Ottawa job stoppage Wednesday. The Upper Canada Board, which includes Pakenham, is expected to be hit early next week. In response to the walkout notice, the Renfrew County public school board immediately announced all its elementary schools would be closed to students Thursday and there would be no elementary school bus service. “Parents should make alternate child care arrangements for the day as elementary students will not be able to attend school,� said a board statement. However, high schools will be open Thursday and secondary students are expected to attend, added the board. While teachers at RCI Intermediate School (grades 7-8) were to be off the job, Grade 9 to 12 classes “will proceed as usual,� said the board. There had been rumours that high school students, upset over their teachers refusing to participate in extra-curricular activities, were also planning to walk out on the same day as the elementary teachers. The secondary teachers’ withdrawal from extra-curricular activities began Monday in public schools and brought the Valley basketball and volleyball seasons to an abrupt halt, as well as cancelling Christmas band concerts. The Upper Ottawa Valley High School Athletics Association website announced the suspension of all games “until the present situation is resolved.� While all boys basketball and girls volleyball games this week and next are listed as postponed, the schedule after the Christmas break is still listed in case an agreement between the teachers and provincial government is reached. Meanwhile, it was education as usual this week at Catholic schools, as their teachers have agreed to tentative deals with the province. See TEACHERS, Page 6

OPP amalgamation touted Sabine Gibbins sabine.gibbins@metroland.com

EMC news - Integrating Arnprior’s OPP detachment into the county’s will lead to cost savings, town council learned Monday. OPP Supt. Chris Lungstrass told council how several benefits would arise if Arnprior amalgamated with Renfrew County’s OPP detachment, including, but not limited to, the cost of overtime policing. “Over the course of the summer, the OPP started looking at where they could start to realize some efficiencies as an organization and for the municipalities we police,� Lungstrass told council during a presentation Monday.

“We all know the price of policing, the cost of policing, is tremendous and just thought it would be in everyone’s best interests to see where we can realize some efficiencies.� One of the areas police quickly realized where efficiencies lay are within the town of Arnprior, specifically because it’s the only stand-alone detachment within the province, besides the city of Quinte’s. “It’s in (Arnprior) such a unique position that it’s a stand-alone in the province,� said Lungstrass. “It is currently policed in what’s known as a 5.1 setting.� Arnprior currently sits under a “pay-as-yougo� contract under that setting, he added.

Library hosts health input meet EMC news – People wishing to provide input into Arnprior Regional Health’s strategic five-year plan have one more chance today (Thursday). The last of six community consultation sessions this week takes place at the Arnprior Public Library from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. A meeting earlier today (Dec, 13) was scheduled for the McNab-Braeside council chambers from 1-2 p.m. There were also four other sessions held on Monday and Tuesday of this week in Arnprior, Burnstown, Pakenham and West Carleton.

Turnout at the Monday meetings was small, what with the freezing rain and power outage in the area. There will also likely be another session in January to catch those who missed this week’s meetings. Local officials are asking people to share their experiences with the hospital, nursing home and family health team to assist Arnprior Regional Health in tackling the health care challenges in the community and setting its future direction. All responses will be compiled and used to write a strategic plan for the next five years.

Emon sets up new hoc committee Steve Newman Steve.newman@metroland.com

Marie ‘Nanny’ Neumann

Senior mourned EMC news - The woman who was likely Arnprior’s oldest citizen passed away Tuesday at The Grove Nursing Home. Marie Louise ‘Nanny’ Neumann, a lifelong resident of Arnprior, died only 18 days shy of her 110th birthday. Neumann was the daughter of the late Xavier Lavertue and the late Delia Levesque and wife of the late Richard Neumann. Visitation is at Pilon Family Funeral Home in Arnprior will be held Dec. 18, 7-9 p.m. and Dec. 19, 10-10:45 a.m. Funeral is set for 1 p.m. Dec. 19. For more, see the obituary in the classifieds section.

EMC news - Family and community members shared in Tuesday-morning celebrations as Greater Madawaska Mayor Peter Emon was sworn in as the new warden of Renfrew County. Emon, 52, of Calabogie succeeds Bob Sweet, who did not seek re-election after serving an unprecedented five terms, including the last two one-year terms. Municipal officials on hand for the ceremonial inaugural session in the county council chambers in Pembroke were Greater Madawaska councillors Karin Lehnhardt and Bruno Kierczak, and five municipal staff — chief administrative officer Allison Holtzhauer, planner Marko Cekic, deputyclerk Lindsay Taniwa, administrative assistant Cathy Appleyard and fire chief Betsy Sayers. Family members in attendance included Emon’s wife Alanna and six-year-old daughter Lily, mother Shirley Emon of Calabogie and her husband Eric, as well as Emon’s motherin-law Anna Swayze of Renfrew. One of the changes under the new warden will be the creation of an ad hoc warden’s advisory committee. The ad hoc committee will consist of past wardens Janice Visneskie of Killaloe, Hagarty and Richards; Don Rathwell of Whitewater Region; and Bob Sweet of Petawawa (who still sits on county council), as well as county councillors Raye-Anne Briscoe of AdmastonBromley, Jennifer Murphy of Bonnechere Valley, Dick Rabishaw of Laurentian Hills and David Thompson of Deep River. Looking to rely on the past warden’s contacts and experience, Emon said in his inaugural speech that the committee’s

duties will include “responsibility for the engagement and commitment of the provincial and federal governments for the orderly and much needed and often delayed expansion of Highway 417.” The same committee, said Emon, will help push the priorities of the Eastern Ontario Wardens’ Caucus and formulate the county’s formal response when the federal or provincial governments ask for budget submissions. In becoming warden, Emon said he did so with honour and humility. He also did so while saying that family and community are essential to community development. “It has often been said it takes a community to raise a child, and I would like to re-jig that phrase and suggest it takes a community to nurture a politician.” In the same speech, he said he learned from an early age the importance of public service and the positive impact that citizens can have on a community. “Public service is an essential component to defining and forming a community. It has often been said the municipal sector is the closest to the people and most responsive to the people, and I have yet to see that disproved.” Those offering official congratulations were Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MPP John Yakabuski, and mayors David Reid of Arnprior, Ed Jacyno of Pembroke and Jim Labow of Whitewater Region. “His commitment and his love of the county is evident,” said Yakabuski. “You have some tough footsteps to follow … but I know you will do a great job,” said Reid in reference to past warden Sweet and his successor. For more on Emon, see the feature story on Page 21.

Weeping for willow One of the oldest weeping willow trees in Robert Simpson Park was cut down last week for safety reasons. Parks and recreation director Glenn Arthur said a major part of the tree split off in the summer during a strong wind. Arbourists brought in by the town deemed it dying and a safety hazard. The tree was felled despite an online petition to save it. Arthur said an old maple in the park is in a similar state and may have to be cut down next year.

Fatal crash trial on hold until March EMC news – The trial of a woman accused of impaired driving causing death in a fatal crash on Highway 17 near Arnprior in March 2011 has been put on hold until March. After almost three weeks of testimony, the trial ground to a halt last Friday as lawyers argued over whether testimony by local police is admissible. Christy Natsis, a Pembroke dentist, has pleaded not guilty to dangerous driving causing death and driving with a blood alcohol level over .08 causing death. She was behind the wheel of an SUV that collided with a vehicle driven by Brian Casey on the evening of March 31, 2011. Casey, a 50-year-old Ottawa father of three, died as the result of injuries suffered in the crash. Natsis’s defence lawyer has asked the judge to toss out some of the police testimony nx evidence that indicated her breath readings were more than twice the legal limit. He argued her constitutional rights were violated by police. Those contentions will be ruled on, likely on March 4. The trial is expected to resume in earnest in Ottawa on March 11 with the Crown continuing its evidence, including a reconstruction of the collision.

Now is the time to prepare for holiday fire safety EMC news - The McNab Braeside Fire Department, in conjunction with the Ontario Fire Marshall’s Office, is asking residents of the township and surrounding areas to be extra diligent this holiday season. According to the provincial fire loss history for December, Ontario has experienced as many as 30 and as few as seven fire fatalities during this month. The Ontario fire service is all too aware that fire most often strikes when people let their guard down - when they’re distracted by the hustle and bustle of the holidays, by the telephone, by the kids or by the doorbell. All it takes is for a pot to be left on the stove, or a candle left burning unattended, and a family’s holiday celebrations can turn to tragedy. Many needless fires can easily be prevented by paying close attention to the following common causes of home fires.

er and on a non-combustible surface. Keep candles out of reach of children and pets and away from anything that can burn. ALCOHOL, CIGARETTES

Many fire deaths are caused by people attempting to cook or smoke while under the influence of alcohol. Keep a close eye on any drinkers in your household and make sure all cigarettes are properly extinguished and the stove is off before going to bed. Install smoke alarms on every level of your home and outside sleeping areas. If occupants smoke in the bedrooms, install smoke alarms inside the bedrooms as well. Test them on a regular basis and change the batteries often.

Careless cooking is the number one cause of home fires and cooking left unattended the most common type of cooking fire. If you are cooking at high temperatures or using hot oil, stay in the kitchen while cooking. If you have to leave the kitchen, turn off the stove. Keep a proper-fitting pot lid near the stove when cooking. If a pot catches fire, slide the lid over the pot and turn off the stove. Do not attempt to move a burning pot. CANDLES

If using candles, place them in a sturdy hold-

Decorative lights should be inspected every year before using them. If wiring is frayed or worn, or if the lights are old, they should be replaced. Turn off Christmas tree lights before going to bed or whenever you leave the home. Follow the manufacturers’ recommendations for correct use of decorative lights.

Teachers ‘fed up’, picket in front of Walter Zadow Continued from front

In a media release Wednesday, the Renfrew County Catholic School Board confirmed all its schools “will be open and fully operational on Thursday” and bus transportation would be available. Up-to-date information will be posted on the board’s website. ETFO Renfrew Teacher Local president Allison Ryan said Tuesday her membership is strongly behind the action. They are “fed up” with the provincial government taking away their collective bargaining rights and feel the one-day walkouts, which they have been in a legal position to do since Dec. 3, are the best way to send a strong message to Queen’s Park, she said. Ninety-two percent of more than 46,000 members who cast a ballot voted in favour of a one-day political protest in voting conducted online Dec. 2-4. Thursday’s public elementary walkout also included occasional teachers, education support personnel (ESP) and professional support personnel (PSP). Ryan said teachers were planning to picket selected schools throughout the district from 9 a.m. to noon Thursday. Arnprior-area teachers will picket at Walter Zadow and in Renfrew pickets will be at Queen Elizabeth, Central and Renfrew Collegiate Intermediate. However, there should be no problem for high school students being dropped off and entering RCI, she said. As well, there will be no difficulty for principals and CUPE workers reporting for work through the picket line, Ryan added. She said the walkouts are definitely being limited to one day, at least for now. Local teachers have a good relationship with their school board, but talks have been impeded by Bill 115, she said. “We realize the board can only bargain with what they’ve been given (by the province).” While there have been several negotiation sessions with the board, no agreement has been finalized and one is not likely before the minister’s announced deadline of Dec. 31 as there have been no more talks scheduled. She pointed out that some school boards have worked out agreements with secondary teachers, only to have the ministry of education thwart the process by demanding changes. “By taking away local autonomy to find solutions, the minister has created total chaos in the education sector,” she charged. Representatives from other groups involved in Thursday’s walkout echoed Ryan’s comments in a news

release announcing the action. “Our members are prepared to do anything they can to stand up for their democratic rights, no matter how difficult or inconvenient,” said David Cresswell, president of the Renfrew Occasional Teacher Local. “The public needs to realize that Bill 115 is draconian legislation that takes away the rights of working people,” said Renfrew PSP Local president Joan Bradley. ESP Local president Colleen Mackin added “we are hopeful of reaching a settlement but the minister has to rethink her approach to bargaining with the education sector.” Ryan said that despite a comment by Premier Dalton McGuinty that the walkouts are about pay, they are about worker rights and the rollback of benefits. Teachers have agreed to a wage freeze to help get the provincial deficit in line, she noted. She said it is unclear what will happen after Dec. 31. Bill 115 gives the provincial government the power to impose settlements on teachers after that date, but Minister Laurel Broten hasn’t said she’d do that, said Ryan. It gives her the power to ban teacher walkouts such as ones this week, but Broten has chosen not to use that power, added Ryan. She said that while some of the candidates vying to replace McGuinty as Liberal leader have said they wouldn’t enact Bill 115, none of them have said they would repeal it either. “We feel it should be repealed … before the dispute can be really resolved,” she said. As well as conducting the walkouts, elementary teachers have been protesting the legislation with a work-to-rule campaign that started Dec. 3. Teachers are not participating in staff meetings, professional development sessions, administrative and filing duties, and extra-curricular activities outside school hours. Ryan said other civil servants are also concerned about the legislation, particularly health care workers who fear they are next. “Bill 115 has targeted teachers and other education workers, but it’s hard to say where the government is going to step next,” she said. A gathering by health care workers at Bonnechere Manor in Renfrew last Friday was one of a series being held to sound the alarm for fear Ontario Liberals and Progressive Conservatives are intending take away their right to impartial arbitration and free collective bargaining. “The governing Liberals want to give themselves the power to over-

Arnprior District High School senior Redman Andrew MacAulay is airborne during what was the last game that will played, at least until after the Christmas break, due to the teacher dispute with the provincial government over Bill 115. ADHS beat St. Joseph’s 88-24. turn the decisions of respected and independent arbitrators and impose contract terms and we think that’s wrong,” said Michael Hurley, president of the Ontario Council of Hospital Unions. “The PCs would go even further and tear up contracts that have been freely agreed-to by both employers and workers. We believe that people in Ontario will agree with us, that these kinds of democratic rights matter to everyone, not just unionized health workers.” “There are two solutions to the chaos that the minister of education has created,” said EFTO president Sam Hammond in the 12 releases announcing the school districts in which the action is being taken this week. “Along with repealing Bill 115, the minister needs to step aside and give school boards and ETFO locals the latitude to have concrete and respectful discussions with all options on the table, to reach collective agreements.” Meanwhile, in a statement re-

leased Monday, McGuinty said while the walkouts are disappointing, they don’t warrant ordering teachers back to work. “Today, the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario has disrupted nine years of labour peace over a disagreement about pay,” he said. “It’s regrettable that students miss any time learning, and it’s unfortunate that families will need to make alternate arrangements. PREMIER DISAPPOINTED

“While inconvenient, these oneday legal strike actions do not warrant the intervention of the government and are a small price to pay to protect full-day kindergarten, smaller class sizes and 10,000 teaching jobs. “While our government is disappointed that some teachers’ unions have chosen to put students in the middle of our disagreement over pay, we are buoyed by those who have worked with us to put students first. Teachers represented by the Ontario English Catholic Teach-

ers Association and the Association des enseignantes et des enseignants franco-ontariens have reached negotiated agreements with the government. And their teachers remain in the classroom with their students.” McGuinty said that faced with a $14-billion deficit, the government’s priority is to protect gains made in the schools. I hope teachers will do as they’ve committed to do, which is to take no more than one day away from school. I’m sure most teachers understand the need to freeze pay - after nine years of fair and steady increases - just as we’re asking all public servants to do across the public sector.” Hammond responded by saying it is unfortunate the premier has “trivialized” the issue by characterizing it as a disagreement over pay. “The education sector’s response to Bill 115 is not about a wage freeze or pause in salaries. This strike action is about the government’s unprecedented interference in the right to collectively bargain, a legal right provided for all people under Ontario law,” he said. “The bill not only puts the minister above the Ontario Human Rights Code and the Ontario Labour Relations Act, it allows no judicial appeal in provincial courts - a tactic rarely if ever used in democracies.” Meanwhile, the Opposition Progressive Conservatives also attacked the government, but for “cowering from the union bosses” and not going far enough to curb teacher walkouts. Ontario PC Education Critic Lisa MacLeod noted that the Liberals had brought the House back early to pass legislation that could end the rotating strikes, but four months later they still refuse to use it. “What’s more important: parents and students, or politics?” she asked. “The Liberals need to stop putting their political interests ahead of our kids’ education. It is time for them to finally take the side of teachers, parents and the students and put an end to these strikes!” New Democrat Education Critic Peter Tabuns said that the Liberals owe parents an apology for their “reckless and unconstitutional” education legislation that has brought conflict into Ontario classrooms. “Instead of making an effort to reach an agreement that would benefit parents, kids and teachers, the McGuinty Liberals came up with a shortsighted scheme in a desperate attempt to win a by-election. “Now parents and students are paying the price,” he said. “It’s time for a respectful conversation that leads to a real agreement.”

New deal between province, doctors

R0011768187_1129

6 Arnprior Chronicle-Guide EMC - Thursday, December 13, 2012

EMC news - The Ontario Medical Association (OMA) has ratified a new Physician Services Agreement (PSA) with the provincial government. The ratification vote took place last week following a referendum with Ontario’s doctors where 81 per cent supported the agreement. The new contract runs from Oct. 1, 2012 to March 31, 2014. The OMA Board unanimously endorsed the agreement in November, and followed with a comprehensive information campaign to educate physicians across the province about the contents of the deal. Last week physicians were able to vote online or by phone and nearly 21,000 doctors cast a ballot, representing the highest voting turnout in the history of the OMA. Key components of the deal include: • Helping the government find almost $400 million in savings including:

• A 0.5 per cent payment discount for all physicians; and • Finding more than $100 million in savings from health system reform; reducing unnecessary lab testing and streamlining hospital equipment purchases. • New priority investments to expand access to family doctors for seniors and patients with higher needs, including an expansion of house calls; • Modernizing delivery of health care and lowering wait times through e-consultations, enabling patients to communicate with doctor more easily, allowing for more virtual connections between family doctors and specialists, and expansion of telemedicine services. The almost $400 million in savings found in this latest agreement is in addition to the over $300 million that Ontario’s doctors have already helped the government find in the past couple of years.

Amalgamation would provide huge cost savings: OPP

RIDE checks continue EMC news – Drivers continued to ignore warnings during the second week of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Festive R.I.D.E. campaign and, according to the OPP, motorists who chose driving impaired over making simple alternate arrangements to get home should not be surprised about getting caught. As of Sunday, Dec. 9 (16 days into the campaign), the OPP have charged 284 drivers with alcohol-related criminal driving offences and issued 275 Administrative Driver’s Licence Suspensions (ADLS) for registering a Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) between .05 and .08 (known as the warn range). The OPP is conducting its annual Festive R.I.D.E. (Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere) campaign from Nov. 24 to Jan. 2, and are once again reminding the public that their strong presence and high visibility will persist right through to the new year. Impaired driving continues to be a major factor in deaths on Ontario’s roads and the OPP remains committed to reducing the tragic loss of life by removing impaired drivers from the province’s roads. In this area, the Renfrew OPP report charging a Cobden man with an impaired driving related offense after stopping a car in a RIDE spot check Dec. 6.

vehicle collisions. Response time, he noted, was set at 92 per cent, meaning 19 times out of 20, there will be sufficient officer deployment to respond immediately to all outstanding calls for service. TIME TO THINK

While councillors welcomed the OPP’s presentation, a few remained unsure of the benefits to Arnprior and what it would mean for a police presence in the community. Coun. Lynn Grinstead questioned how many officers would always be deployed in Arnprior, stating she was concerned about the safety of the community if police presence was at a minimum. Legault reassured her there would always be two patrolling

the area, while back-up would be called in if needed. “If there was some major crime, then we’d bring someone in from Renfrew or Ottawa,” he said. Reeve Walter Stack mentioned how he was hoping for more time to consider the proposal after hearing the OPP was looking to have a decision from council in early January. Legault appreciated the comments, saying how consultations with Mayor Dave Reid previously had been favourable and positive and there had been no opposition to the idea of integrating Arnprior into the Renfrew detachment. “We can have this in place by January and start seeing some savings,” said Legault. In the end, council asked staff to make a recommendation regarding the proposal and bring it forward to a future council meeting.

Arnprior would have the ability of being part of a larger grouping, and would share officers with other detachments in the area while still keeping officers on staff in the town, said his colleague Sgt. Paul Legault. History has changed over time in regards to the costing of police services, said Legault. “Hopefully this information will help you make an informed decision down the road,” he said. Before Jan. 1, 1998, 202 municipalities paid for their municipal policing, while 576 municipalities were policed by the OPP at no cost. But effective Jan. 1, 1998, all municipalities were required to pay for police services, and were mandated to provide adequate and effective police services. As such, the contract points out, municipalities must include core police services, including crime prevention, law enforcement, assistance to victims of crime, public order maintenance and emergency response. Legault then outlined contract versus non-contract policing with the OPP. Under a 5.1, non-contract police service, which Arnprior is currently involved in, if a municipality does not provide the aforementioned police services, then the OPP would provide police services to the municipality. The benefits to amalgamating Arnprior’s detachment into Renfrew County’s is quite diverse, he said. For instance, Arnprior would have access to obtaining grants for different services, whereas now it does not. Under a contract with the OPP, there would be a partnership between the municipality and province, Legault said, and all service would be provided by the OPP. There would also be a guaranteed level of service in officer hours per year. For example, one full time officer would receive 1,467 hours. Through the police services board, the detachment would be able to request grants for services such as the RIDE program and other incentives, Legault went on to say. Formula costs have increased by about $9,888 over the last nine years. Under a 5.1 stand-alone structure, there is one full-time equivalent Staff Sgt. detachment commander, one full-time equivalent sergeant and 14 constables. The estimated cost for 2012 was $2,185,268. If integrated with Renfrew, there would be 24 full-time equivalent Staff Sgt. detachment commanders, nearly two full-time equivalent sergeants, nearly 12 full-time equivalent constables, and .49 civilians, set an estimated cost of $1,833,457, with a difference of $351,811. When it comes to deployment, Legault told council how it is based on calls for service as opposed to populations. “If there are more occurrences (in a municipality) and more calls for service, then a certain number of officers would be deployed based on that,” he said. “A lot of communities would be paying more money for policing if it went by population.” Deployment parameters include death/injury, domestics, false alarms, emergency or compassionate messages, missing and lost persons, and rescues, as well as responding to motor

Time to talk turkey Quit your belly achinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. After all you get paid reasonably well. In these tough times, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re lucky to have a job. And you get the whole summer off. Consider yourself lucky. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got nothing to complain about. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the response some people have to Ontario teachers and National Hockey League players, both of whom are involved with high profile disputes with their employers. But as usual in these cases, that type of response is simplistic. NHL hockey players are, for the most part, paid big bucks and have time in the summers to recuperate (some longer than others, especially

if you are a Toronto Maple Leaf). However, the average playerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s career spans something like four or five years, so they have to make hay while the sun shines, so to speak. And the wear and tear of the modern game can play havoc with their health, to the point many are limited in ways of making a living after retiring from hockey. As for having the summer off, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s getting to be a thing of the past, as staying competitive in todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game requires rigorous year-round training. The players are the reason fans come to the rink, so they shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be begrudged for wanting a fair share of revenues for their mostly ab-

breviated careers in the big leagues. As for teachers, they also get paid fairly well, although nowhere near the level of sports stars (thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another debate). And their game has changed also, leading to more wear and tear on their psyches. No longer can they control their classes with an iron hand or an icy stare. While teaching nowadays can still be extremely rewarding, it can also be exceedingly frustrating, mainly due to too many adults who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really give a damn about proper parenting. So when the government rolls back benefits and takes away protections, making an already stressful job even more taxing, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s understandable why teachers are speaking up and walking out. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been fortunate enough that up until this week local teachers have continued to be involved in extra-curricular activities. If they

had balked like those in some schools, Arnprior students (and parents) would have missed out this fall on the thrills of football, basketball and rugby championships and a most enjoyable musical play. Many of the players have also shown good faith when it comes to dealing with the fans by playing charity games, including the heartwarming tour by several NHLers recently to the hockey-starved northern reaches of the country. However, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coming down to crunch time in the two disputes and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the students and fans who getting squeezed in the middle. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time the government and the NHL owners show some leadership and take some real steps towards a new deal with their employees. Christmas is nearly here. If weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re to get our extra-curriculars and NHL hockey back, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to talk turkey.

Breast cancer survivors welcome to join up with Prior Chest Nuts To the Editor: Thank you, from the Prior Chest Nuts Dragonboat Team, for your ongoing coverage of our activities and your recent article about Susan Mills attending a Dragonboat Canada Coachâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s course. We are so proud of Susan and pleased that she will be another coach for us in the spring. She is just one of the many dedicated women who make up this team. As our season on the water has finished for 2012, we are already thinking and planning for 2013. Our dragonboat (Kahlua) has left the White Lake Marina and is safely stored for the winter months. We are so fortunate to be able to use the facilities at the White Lake Marina.

We are always looking for more paddlers and hope that anyone who is a breast cancer survivor and would like to meet a gaggle of fun-loving, energetic (sometimes!), spirited women, come out and give us a try. We will be practising in the pool at the Nick Smith Centre in the spring of 2013, where we learn the technique of how to hold the paddle, the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;A-frameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and get into the rhythm of paddling together. It is lots of fun, and a great way to gear up for the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;realâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; paddle on the water in May. Christmas greetings to all of you from all of us. Paddles Up!

Lot of morons driving on Hwy. 17 To the editor: I have often heard, and read, that the section of highway from Arnprior and Deep River is â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Killer Highway.â&#x20AC;? I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t contest the fact that many have been injured and/or lost their lives driving on this roadway. But this is just a big chunk of asphalt. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t kill people. People kill people. Living in the Haley Station town site, I often travel these roads â&#x20AC;&#x201C; west, east, north and south. And unfortunately I get cut off, passed inappropriately, and witness dangerous and aggressive driving habits every time I get behind the wheel. There are a lot of morons driving in Renfrew County. For instance, on Friday, Nov. 16, I was passed by a motorist in the 60-km-per-hour construction zone at the highway end of Bruce Street. The vehicle was well in excess of the posted speed limit. I turned up Bruce Street and at the lights, by Wendyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, lo and behold, there was the same vehicle in the drive-thru of Tim Hortons. How foolish is that? In our governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perception, further costly studies needed to be done to better understand the needs on Highway 17, per improvements. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think so.

Driversâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; habits need to be severely altered. Those monies could have been better spent to aid our police forces. They have a tough job to keep these drivers under control and a lot heftier fines would go a long way towards that end. Another instance of stupidity I recently witnessed was at the top of Storyland Hill. I was driving towards the corner, just before the Castleford Road turn, when I noticed a gold-coloured, full-size Chev truck coming up behind me very quickly. That is a double, solid-lines, 90 degrees blind corner, marked at 60 km-per-hour. This moron passed me, on the inside, when I was into the corner. If anyone had been coming from Storylandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s direction, they would have been met head on. Now, if drivers like that have a death wish, so be it. But I grow weary of this type of driving behaviour, and wish to live a long, fulfilled life. And, unfortunately, I witness this disturbing behaviour every day I drive. So, in conclusion, people â&#x20AC;&#x201C; think before you act. A motor vehicle, in the wrong hands, is a weapon. Slow down. Life is too short as it is.

Everyone is welcome to join the firefighters for some Christmas cheer. There is no fee for breakfast, but people are asked to bring a food donation for the Arnprior District Food Bank. “We look forward to seeing you,” said the department’s fire prevention officer, Captain Karen Barsoski.

From A.J. to T.O.

in the Country at John XXIII

Kayla Clouthier, Nicholas Edge, and Breanna Foster accept donations at last Saturday’s A.J. Charbonneau Public School craft fair. The Grade 8 class is planning a trip to Toronto to check out Wonderland and a stage production of The Wizard of Oz.

John XXIII’s holiday offering this year was Christmas in the Country. In a scene from the performance, above, from left, are Ethan McCormick, Johanna Enright (seated), Lily McIntyre and Emilie Robinson. At right are, Emily Sawyer and Haven Caster (both seated) and Meg Redmond and Rihana Yach (both standing). The school, unaffected by the teacher-provincial government dispute, held concerts Tuesday afternoon and twice again Wednesday evening. St. Joseph’s Catholic School in Arnprior is holding its Christmas concert Tuesday, Dec. 18 at 7 p.m. in St. John Chrysostom Church.

Schools collecting snowsuits for CPAN EMC lifestyle – With the need even more than last year, people are being urged to drop off snowsuits and winter gear for needy children at local schools. Renfrew County Child Poverty Action Network coordinator Lyn Smith said the organization has been “overwhelmed” with requests coming into Operation Snowsuit. As of Monday, there were 297 children and youth on the list (last year Operation Snowsuit helped 268 kids). The campaign has always raised enough to fill every

request and hopes to do the same this year despite the growing need. Most schools in the county are collecting snowsuits. Bell employees will collect and bring them to Operation Snowsuit Headquarters. “While we need the community’s help (donating gently used or new snowsuits, or money), we are finding that we are particularly short of certain sizes,” noted Smith. Sizes campaign is in dire need of includes:  girls snowsuits, jackets and pants (we can mix and

match) - 6X, 7, 8, 10;  boys snowsuits, jackets and pants (we can mix and match) - 6X, 7, 8, 10;  ladies snow pants small, medium, large and extra large;  men’s snow pants small, medium, large;  boots specially needed are - men’s 9, 10, 11, 12, 13; ladies 8, 9; girls 1, 2, 3; boys 1,2,3; and toddler 10. If anyone has donations and cannot find where to drop them off, they should call CPAN at 613 735 2374, ext. 250. R0011781444/1129

An adult Bald Eagle is unmistakable.

Exciting encounter with eagles EMC lifestyle - One of the most exciting birds to see is an eagle. With more than a six-foot wingspan, its size is breath taking. Also, Bald Eagles were once endangered, so an encounter with that species is one with a bird that formerly hovered on the brink of extinction. Thus, it is not hard to imagine the excitement Ray Holland felt when he recently encountered no fewer than eight eagles near Kinburn. Ray was on Logger’s Way when an eagle flew up from a field. Then another appeared One was a Bald, but the second was a Golden Eagle. Then more eagles flew and still others were spotted sitting in trees. In total seven Bald Eagles and one Golden Eagle were present. Some were tearing up pieces of meat. This behaviour. plus a cacophony of raven and crow scream. informed Ray that a large dead animal was nearby. That scenario would not have occurred 50 years ago. Both species of eagles had pretty well vanished from much of their former range in North America, courtesy of the insecticide DDT. That chemical was also responsible for the demise of falcons and other predatory birds that ate songbirds (and fish) with accumulated toxin in their bodies. Even ravens had become rare but not due to DDT poisoning.

Michael Runtz Nature’s Way It is believed that their decline was due in part to strychnine that was put out to kill wolves. That poison, as well as wolf traps, was also responsible for the death of many eagles. With the banning of DDT, the persistent chemical gradually vanished from the ecosystem. Birds of prey began laying normal eggs (shells were thinner when DDT was present) and more young were successfully produced. Captive breeding programmes were initiated for Peregrine Falcons and Bald Eagles, and gradually their numbers began to rise. While never common in eastern North America, Golden Eagles also began to recover. We see very few of these northern birds here, and reported sightings are often misidentified young Bald Eagles, which take five years

to attain their pure white head and tail and dark brown body and wings. For the first three years, Bald Eagles are mostly brown with varying amounts of white in their plumage. Yearlings are not uncommonly mistaken for Goldens. In addition to killing animals (Balds love fish and ducks while Goldens capture mammals as large as young caribou), both species scavenge. A wolf- or coyote-killed deer is especially attractive, and in winter a carcass will usually have at least one eagle present. Ray Holland hit a goldmine. Not only is it rare to see both species together, a collection of eagles that size is seldom encountered here. Two Golden Eagles were recently reported dining on a dead deer near Watson’s Corners, so it appears to be an exceptionally good year for seeing one of these magnificent birds. If you have never seen an eagle, try putting a dead deer in your backyard. Just hope your neighbours don’t mind the noisy party that will ensue! With the Boxing Day bird count nearing, any sightings of eagles or unusual feeder birds are welcome. The Nature Number is 613387-2503; email is mruntz@ start.ca.

Christmas Bird Count starts Dec. 14 EMC news - Following a century-long tradition, some 60,000 birders will venture out across North America to participate in the single longest-running and most popular wildlife census in the Americas between Dec. 14 and Jan. 5. Among the groups participating will be Macnamara Field Naturalists in Arnprior, and Innis Point Observatory, Ottawa Duck Club, and Ottawa Field Naturalists’Club in Ottawa. Not only a great opportunity to get outside with friends, this volunteer initiative gathers indispensable data revealing trends in bird populations. In Ontario alone, there are more than 120 registered counts this year, with Ontario Nature member groups organizing nearly half of them The hordes of citizen scientists will venture out to 24-ki-

lometer diameter circles as far north as Thunder Bay, Ottawa to east and Point Pelee to the south. The counts are conducted over a 24-hour period and volunteers are assigned specific routes. Christmas Bird Counts have always been open to birders of all levels and, starting this year, there is no fee to participate. The data collected allow researchers and conservation organizations to study the health of birds across North America. Armed with this information, groups like Ontario Nature can set priorities for bird conservation. Counts in the 1980s revealed a drastic decline in the number of American black ducks, triggering much-needed conservation initiatives. “With the Christmas Bird

Counts, citizen scientists are effectively tracking bird populations and ranges,” says John Urquhart, Ontario Nature’s conservation science manager. “This is a cost-effective way for conservation organizations to identify trends so we can undertake conservation work where it’s needed most.” The Christmas Bird Count tradition dates back to 1900 when American ornithologist, Frank Chapman, suggested an alternative to the once popular annual Christmas hunt where teams competed to see who could shoot the most birds and small game. Chapman proposed that people record - rather than shoot - birds. That first year, 27 people counted birds at 25 locations. Last year, an astounding 63,000 volunteers counted more than 60 million birds.

HEALTH

Flu makes an appearance in Eastern Ontario EMC news – Area health units have reported cases of influenza in the area west and south of Ottawa. Health officials are taking the flu outbreak, even if it is limited to this point, seriously. Influenza (the flu) is a serious viral illness that results in a combination of fever, cough, headache, muscle soreness, sore throat and stuffy nose, and can lead to pneumonia, they note. It can also make other illnesses worse, especially those that affect the lungs and heart.

“Influenza spreads very easily from an infected person to others through coughing and sneezing,” said Dr. Paula Stewart, Medical Officer of Health for the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit. “Avoid contact with those who are infected and wash your hands frequently to avoid spreading the virus. Those who are ill should stay home, clean their hands frequently and cover their coughs and sneezes.” Influenza is also spread by direct contact

vaccine. The flu shot cannot give you influenza because it does not contain live virus, health officials stress. Antiviral medication can reduce the severity of influenza. Therefore, those who are very ill with the symptoms of influenza, particularly individuals who have a chronic disease, should seek medical advice early. For more information on influenza or the flu vaccine, visit www.healthunit.org or call your local health unit.

with surfaces or objects like clothes, toys and eating utensils that have been infected by the virus. Frequent cleaning of hard surfaces and commonly touched areas is recommended to prevent the spread of influenza. Health units say there is still time to get vaccinated if you have not received a flu shot already. Call your health care provider, as most offices still have an inventory of influenza vaccine. The most common type of influenza seen in Ontario this fall is covered by the current

EMC business – Arnprior has a new neighbourhood pub. The John St. Pub will open Wednesday, Dec. 19 above the Steve and Dennis Family Restaurant in downtown Arnprior. The Xidous family has turned the former Exciters Night Club into a pub. Jimmy Xidous contends that a pub is state of mind, “and that alone sets it apart from any other eating and drinking establishment.” The John St. Pub is proud to offer a relaxed and welcoming pub, where good food, affordable prices, and great conversations all come together. The John St. Pub is a great place to come with friends to watch your favourite sporting events and UFC fights on one of its 50-inch LED HDTVs, “so you don’t miss a second of action and cheering on your favourite teams,” he says. The pub also features a giant 113-inch HDTV projector screen for special sporting events, to enhance sports viewing. It allows viewers to see the games as they are meant to be seen in high definition, said Xidous. With a traditional pub setting, warm colours, comfortable seating, cozy fireplace and live entertainment three

Veteran municipal politician excited about new warden responsibilities Steve Newman Steve.newman@metroland.com

New Renfrew County Warden Peter Emon with Raye-Anne Briscoe and Jack Wilson, who nominated the Greater Madawaska mayor for the position.

Greater Madawaska Mayor Peter Emon was sworn in as Renfrew County Warden Tuesday. Now that Emon is stepping into the limelight as county warden, he says there are a few big issues. But whatever the challenge, Emon says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s excited about the opportunity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m actually very excited because I like to learn. And I like to meet people,â&#x20AC;? he says, noting heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s determined to see the Eastern Ontario Regional Network broadband project completed. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supposed to provide high-speed Internet to about 95 per cent of the county by late 2013. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the goal has to be 100 per cent coverage,â&#x20AC;? insists Emon of the need to ďŹ ll in the remaining gaps. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a necessary household tool as well as a business tool,â&#x20AC;? says Emon, â&#x20AC;&#x153;because each level of government and service is moving toward more and more involvement and dependence on electronic contact with their customers and patients.â&#x20AC;? Not the least of his challenges as warden, adds Emon, is the need to continue to push for the four-laning of Highway 17 well beyond Arnprior, for reasons that certainly include economic development. Other challenges and focuses as warden, he says, will be to ensure the footprint of Canadian Forces Base Petawawa remains strong, and that support continues for the Ottawa Valley Tourist Association, the tourism arm for the County of Renfrew. Given that the county has lost one railway and appears

destined to lose another, and that $160 million is now spent each year by Renfrew County visitors, Emon says OVTAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work is crucial to the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economic well-being.

Overindulgence?

FAMILY LIFE

Meanwhile, Emon says life at home is different, but the same. The same, because there are regular questions for him and wife Alanna from their only child, six-year-old daughter Lily. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just fun all the time,â&#x20AC;? says Emon, who drives her to school weekday mornings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Questions from Lily make me think all the time â&#x20AC;ŚYouâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re teaching them (kids) all the time and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re teaching you.â&#x20AC;? Also, a job change helped Emon tackle the demands of parenthood and municipal politics. After staying home for the second year of Lilyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life, he left Family and Children Services, to take a parttime job as a crisis worker in mid-2007 with Pembroke Regional Hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s community mental health team. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about matching resources to needs, he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what I think politics is, bettering the community and the people in it,â&#x20AC;? explains Emon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And you should be able to do that without partisan heckling and posturing. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the most disappointing thing for me when I look at the federal and provincial system. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why I enjoy municipal and local politics, because you get a true sense of what the issues are, and what the possibilities are to resolve them. And youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re free to fashion a plan to do so.â&#x20AC;? Overall, Emonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not complaining. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very happy with where my life is,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My marriage is great. I have an awesome daughter and good support from my extended family. And I really like my community and the people in it. I like my job, and the people I work with are great. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And politically, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m engaged, and interested in what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m doing and getting some results.â&#x20AC;?

EMC news - Life didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take Peter Emon where he anticipated. Now 52, and having just entered his ďŹ rst of year as Renfrew County warden, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s busy but happy. Happy with family life. Happy with his work in the health care sector. And happy to face present and new challenges as the new warden. But in May 1979, while driving back from the formal at Renfrew Collegiate Institute, life took a terrible turn for the Calabogie native. The Grade 13 student was driving along Calabogie Road when he fell asleep, his car rolled down an embankment, and he broke his neck. He had anticipated studying business, with a focus on sports administration, and playing football, perhaps at Wilfrid Laurier University or the University of Western Ontario. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But once I broke my neck, it was pretty clear I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to be able to continue to play hockey and football, and live that kind of lifestyle,â&#x20AC;? recalls Emon, who thought he might coach or work in sports management. At the Ottawa Civic Hospital, he had vertebraes C3 and C4 fused, part of one toe amputated, and metal spikes inserted in his right shoulder. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The accident left me with general weakness on my left side, but there were serious concerns at the time that I would never walk again.â&#x20AC;? But he did walk again, and conversations with social workers and rehab workers convinced him he had the ability and skills to help other people. Initially, Emon thought he might do work related to spinal-cord injuries. However, while studying for his social work degree at the University of Windsor, he worked four years as a summer student with Renfrew County Family and Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Services (FCS).

He was increasingly convinced this was his career direction, after taking schoolyear placements with a counselling agency and delivering food vouchers in a low-income neighbourhood of Detroit. Emon says the work â&#x20AC;&#x153;showed me not everyone can be treated the same way. You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take the cookie-cutter approach.â&#x20AC;? Coincidentally, he started developing that philosophy in concert with his FCS work and with a foray into municipal politics. He began full-time work with Renfrew County Family and Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Services in 1989, a year after he had taken political baby steps when elected to Bagot and BlythďŹ eld Township council. He has been elected every subsequent term while representing either Bagot & BlythďŹ eld, Bagot, BlythďŹ eld & Brougham, or Greater Madawaska. Through those 24 years in municipal politics, he has worked under council heads JR Easton, Barry Moran, Jack Frost, Paul Doyle and Isobel Kristijan. Of those, he says he fondly remembers â&#x20AC;&#x153;legendary discussionsâ&#x20AC;? with Doyle, whom he said was challenging, interesting and humorous. Mentors for Emon in the political arena include Moran, a current Justice of the Peace and a fellow veteran of the Calabogie Lions Club. Another was Eldon Pennock, the former deputy-reeve for Bagot & BlythďŹ eld and Greater Madawaska. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He worked constantly,â&#x20AC;? he says of Pennock. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He applied common sense and fashioned good results. He was always talking about what had to be done next, and he never wanted recognition. And if he was going to change his mind about something, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d tell you beforehand. He was a wise man.â&#x20AC;? Moran, who served a term as Renfrew County warden, encouraged Emon to run for municipal ofďŹ ce and to â&#x20AC;&#x153;think outside the boxâ&#x20AC;? when necessary.

Rees sentenced to almost five years Convicted drunk driver sent to prison for death of young West Carleton mother of twins Derek Dunn derek.dunn@metroland.com

EMC news – The drunk driver who killed a young mother near a Constance Bay bar last March will face almost five years in prison.

Jeremy Rees sat impassively in the prison’s box with head hung low as Justice Celine Dorval handed down the sentence on Dec. 10: four years of imprisonment for impaired driving causing death; 11 months and 18 days for

failure to remain at the scene; followed by a driver’s licence suspension of 10 years. The crown asked for six years; the defence for three or four. The Vance family indicated to media that they are fine

TOWN OF ARNPRIOR NOTICE OF COUNCIL’S INTENTION TO PASS AN AMENDING BY-LAW TO REMOVE A HOLDING SYMBOL PART LOT 5, CONCESSION B CALLAHAN FARM SUBDIVISION PHASE I TOWN OF ARNPRIOR TAKE NOTICE that the Council of the Town of Arnprior intends to pass a By-law under Section 36 of the Planning Act, RSO 1990, to remove the holding provisions from the lands zoned for the development of a Plan of Subdivision known as the Callahan Farm Subdivision – Phase 1, being Part of Lot 5, Concession B, as shown on the attached key plan, from Residential One – holding (R1-h), Residential One – Exception Twenty Seven - holding (R1-E27-h), Residential One – Exception Twenty Eight – holding (R1-E28-h), Residential Three - holding (R3-h) and Open Space One – holding (OS1-h) to Residential One (R1), Residential One – Exception Twenty Seven (R1-E27), Residential One – Exception Twenty Eight (R1-E28), Residential Three (R3) and Open Space One (OS1).

with the judge’s sentence, but declined further comment. Twenty-six-year-old Erin Vance was struck by Rees’ car and flung some 32 metres away in the early morning hours of March 18. She was declared dead soon after. Rees fled the scene, turning himself in to police on March 19. Figuring into Dorval’s decision was that Rees had been partying at various locations with friends all that day, St. Patrick’s Day, and didn’t seem fazed at the time. “The group was drinking and driving all day,” Dorval said. “Notwithstanding the constant and significant publicity with respect to drinking and driving, the attitude displayed is that of total disregard for the dangers created by impaired driving.” The judge said the aggravating factors in the case included: • The accused had been drinking continually more than 12 hours when he chose to drive; • There was an open can of beer within reach of the driver’s seat; • His driving record includes a careless driving conviction that he blew a ‘warning’ level for alcohol in his system; • He was speeding while drunk; • He failed to remain at the scene in order to avoid analysis of his blood alcohol concentration; • The accused caused the death of mother of two young children. The mitigating factors were: • The plea of guilt; • The genuine remorse of Rees; • His age; • His admission of guilt upon turning himself in to police; • His potential for rehabilitation is significant given the support of his family. Dorval’s decision detailed that fateful day. Rees, along with friends Justin and Jason Hammond started drinking beer and mud bogging in the afternoon, before heading to The Point Lounge in Constance Bay. Vance, a friend of Justin Hammond, was there drinking. At 1:30 a.m. Rees left with Jason and was spotted driving aggressively; Vance stayed with Justin before the two began walking toward his home. “They were walking along the south shoulder of Bayview Drive, well off the roadway, they noticed a car driving eastbound at a high rate of speed. Jeremy Rees was driving this vehicle,” Dorval said, adding that the roads were damp and the weather overcast with a light fog. As he came out of a curve in the road he lost control of his vehicle, she continued, and his vehicle went off the roadway: it narrowly missed

Justin, but hit Vance. Rees’ vehicle continued across the front lawns of four different homes, driving off road for 89 metres, over trees, shrubs, posts, and a cable box before coming to rest. “Justin Hammond could not see Ms. Vance and believed she may be trapped to the car. He ran to the vehicle. Mr. Rees exited the vehicle,” Dorval said. “Witnesses were arriving on scene as others who had been at the bar were also walking along the same route. Ms. Vance’s body was found but she was unresponsive. Her personal items scattered around the area. When one witness, Ms. Lefebvre called 911, she asked Mr. Rees if he had struck Ms. Vance and he admitted he had.” Justin, after learning what happened, confronted Rees, punched him, and threw him on the ground. Another witness separated them and escorted Hammond down the road. “Another witness had noted that both men appeared intoxicated; they both had glassy eyes, slurred speech, slow motions and reactions and both were stumbling and tripping,” Dorval said. “Jeremy Rees left the scene on foot.” Police showed up twice at his address, but his girlfriend said she hadn’t heard from him. On a third visit, at 6:30 a.m., she was “distraught” and knew why they were looking for him. He turned himself in the next day. FLED TO RENFREW

“The accused admitted that he had consumed too much alcohol to be driving and that there are many details of the night that he could not remember as the night was a ‘blur.’” He said he remembered driving too fast along Bayview Drive and “playing with his stereo” and lost control. He fled home through fields, changed clothes, and hitchhiked to his mother’s in Renfrew. Rees’ vehicle was searched. There was a cooler in the back seat of the vehicle with 26 cans/bottles of beer and one can of Molson Canadian beer was found in the centre console of the car, Dorval said. It was half full. Rees, who turned 24 this week, has a prior conviction for possession of marijuana or another schedule II substance. After getting his licence in 2005, Rees was stopped in June for driving without a qualified driver, was convicted and suspended. In November that year, he was again driving without a qualified driver, convicted, and again suspended. “He had his first collision in 2006 although no charges were laid,” Dorval said. “In July 2008 he was charged with careless driv-

ing following a motor vehicle accident. On that occasion, he was required to provide a sample of his breath in an approved screening device. The result was ‘warn’ which means that he had a blood alcohol concentration in the range of 50 to 11 mgs.” He has been convicted of speeding on three occasions since. Rees dropped out of a high school in 2007, but has since obtained his diploma. He is said to enjoy a positive relationship within his family, and is interested in pursuing a career in the trades to employ skills he learned on his family’s farm, Dorval said. He quit working at Dewmont Stables in July 2012, and has since been unemployed. “Mr. Rees was described as an honest, trustworthy, caring and helpful individual. He has shown remorse for his actions,” Dorval said. “He is ashamed, embarrassed and self-conscious and has retreated at home, and spends most of his time alone in his room. Although he has experienced suicidal ideations, he stated that he would not act on them as he would not want to hurt his family more than he already has.” IMPACT ON FAMILY

Vance’s twin five-year-old boys are insecure and fear the loss of their grandparents, Dorval said. “Her two sons have been deprived of the unconditional love of their mother. The impact of this loss on their lives cannot be measured now or ever, but can only be described as devastating and life altering.” Her parents are left to live with the loss of a daughter in addition to raising her two sons. They are now primary caregivers again when they should be contemplating retirement, she said. “Erin’s brother John Vance describes how he has lost his enjoyment of life since the death of his sister. He has lost focus, and feels anxious constantly. He has lost the feeling of peace one enjoys in entering one’s family home and describes that entering his parents’ residence is now a source of grief and anxiety.” He has lost faith in people’s ability to make choices with regard to others and as a result feels angry and disgusted with strangers, Dorval said. He has isolated himself as he has lost faith in normal social interactions. “John has lost his only sibling: that loss will remain significant throughout his life.” Dorval concluded that society lost a strong young woman who chose to parent at a young age; and that she was a hardworking person who was moving toward independence. “Despite her responsible decision not to drive on March 17, 2012 she was deprived of her life.”

Phone fraudsters still finding victims EMC news – The OPP is warning people to be cautious at this time of year, as fraudsters have recently used the ‘emergency’ scam locally. In a typical scenario, you receive a phone call from a con-artist claiming to be a relative. The caller goes on to say they are in some kind of trouble and need money immediately. They often report either being in a car accident, having trouble returning from a foreign country or needing bail money. They claim to be embarrassed and ask you not to tell anyone about it. A victim sent $1,800 to Montreal last week, and after the fraudster called again and request-

ed a further $2,300, the victim reported the incident to police. If you receive a call of this nature, the OPP ask you discuss it with someone you trust prior to sending cash, or call the police. Report phone frauds to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre at 1888-495-8501 or www.antifraudcentre.ca. MAN LURKING

LCBO raising funds for MADD Canada in December EMC news - The public can help support Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) Canada by making a donation this month at the Arnprior and other LCBO stores throughout Ontario. Donation boxes for MADD Canada are being displayed at LCBO checkout counters until Jan. 5. As part of LCBO’s annual Giving Back In Our Community campaign, customer service representatives will also invite customers to add a $2, $5 or $10 donation to their purchase. LCBO’s Giving Back In Our Community campaign raises funds for MADD Canada and Ontario’s four children’s hospitals: SickKids Foundation, McMaster Children’s Hospital, CHEO Foundation and Children’s Health Foundation. The funds raised for MADD Canada support its School Assembly Program, a film and inclass curriculum guide that educates students about the risks of impaired driving. The compelling film features a combination of a fictional storyline and testimonials from real-life victims of impaired driving. The goal of the program is to encourage students to make responsible choices and not drink or take drugs and drive or ride along with someone who has.

“Thanks to the LCBO’s network of stores across the province, the commitment of its employees and the generosity of its customers, MADD Canada is reaching more Ontario students than ever before,” said MADD Canada National President Denise Dubyk. “Our School Assembly Program provides realistic and impactful education on impaired driving, and gives young people the knowledge and motivation they need to make safe and sober driving choices. It’s a message that saves lives, and we are deeply grateful to the LCBO, its employees and its customers for helping ensure this message reaches Ontario students.” “We are proud to partner again with MADD Canada for the annual Giving Back In Our Community campaign,” says LCBO CEO Bob Peter. “Our customers and staff are truly concerned about the safety of youth in communities across Ontario. Thanks to our generous customers, we raised a new record $1.27 million last December,” he said. “As a result, 900 presentations of MADD Canada’s School Assembly Program will be delivered to more than half a million students at no cost to the schools. Through this program, we can empower young people to make responsible choices and help prevent impaired driving.”

Metcalfe’s Jordan Malette scores the clinching goal past Kyle Lamothe in the shootout Sunday to give the Jets a 4-3 win at the Nick Smith Centre.

Packers give up early lead, lose third straight John Carter john.carter@metroland.com

EMC sports - Ouch, that hurt. The Arnprior gave up a 3-0 lead on home ice to lose to 4-3 to Metcalfe Sunday. At least they salvaged a point from the weekend as the loss came in a shootout. The Packers were likely tired after losing a hard-fought game, also 4-3, to Almonte the night before. Arnprior pulled ahead 2-0 Sunday with goals half a minute apart in the first period by Corey Chaplin and Marc Shanks. The Packers pulled ahead in the first minute of the second period, as top scorer Jared Steege connected for is 29th goal of the campaign. However, Metcalfe got a boost from an unassisted goal by Ryan Pike half-way through the second. Before the period ended, they had pulled to within one with a Devon Docksteader goal. Metcalfe outshot Arnprior 20-9 in the period. The third stanza was much more even, but Derek Varrin pulled the Jets even with 4:34 left in the game. Joshua Gervais and Jordan Malette scored in the shootout for Metcalfe, while the Packer shooters were unable to solve Jets netminder Benoit Larocque. Both teams weren’t able to get their powerplays going, with the Packers going 0-5 and the Jets 0-8.

In Almonte Saturday, Arnprior received four power-plays to the Thunder’s 10, but again no extra strength goals were scored. The Packers had the early lead in that game too, with Reid Murphy and Eric Malloy giving Arnprior a 2-1 advantage after one period. However, Almonte tallied twice in the second period to take over the lead. The Thunder pulled ahead 4-2 early in the third. Brock Burge made it 4-3 with three minutes left, but it was too little, too late. Almonte outshot Arnprior 38-27. Lamothe played both games on the weekend, with local produce Mike Cheslock being the back-up. The Packers again play back-to-back games this week. They play Ottawa West away tonight (Thursday) in a 7:20 start, then follow up by hosting the division celler-dwellers, Shawville Pontiacs this Friday, Dec. 14 at 8 p.m. After a week off, Arnprior plays two more back-to-back games next weekend, in Perth Friday, Dec. 21 and Almonte Saturday, Dec. 22. They follow that up with their third game in three nights by hosting arch-rival Renfrew Sunday, Dec. 23 at 7:30 p.m. at the Nick Smith Centre. The Packers end 2012 with a home game Friday, Dec. 28 against Almonte at 8 p.m. The Packers are tied for third in the Valley Division with Renfrew, two points behind Stittsville and 10 back of Perth.

High school basketball, volleyball seasons put on hold John Carter john.carter@metroland.com

The basketball and volleyball seasons for the Arnprior District High School Redmen have ended almost as soon as they started. The decision by secondary school teachers to stop participating in all extra-curricular activities beginning Monday to protest Bill 115 means the sports seasons have been put on hold. All games this and next week were cancelled. It was an especially disappointing for the development for the ADHS senior boys basketball team, which with nine returning players is a strong favourite to win another Renfrew County championship and do well in the Eastern Ontario tournament, and maybe even qualify for the Ontario title tournament. However, Upper Ottawa High School athletic association ofďŹ cials are holding out hope the season can resume in the new year. The schedule on the website still lists games starting Jan. 8 in the hopes that a resolution will be ďŹ nalized by then between the provincial government and teachers. The ADHS Senior Redmen were off to an impressive 2-0 start when the season ended. Arnprior rolled over St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s of Renfrew 88-24 Dec. 6 on its home court. Andrew MacAulay led the way with 24 points and Mike Schoveller added 23. On Dec. 4, ADHS again hit for 88 points in an 88-43 win at RCI. Jaeger Prot led the Redmen with 18 points, while Brad Kasoboski had 13 and Shoveller added 10. The Senior Redmen also showed they could play with some of the top teams in the province with a strong showing at a tournament at Laurentian University in Sudbury two weekends ago. The team was competitive in the ďŹ rst three games before running out of gas after playing four games in 25 hours.

The Junior Redmen had had mixed results in the ďŹ rst week of the season. ADHS beat St. Joeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 46-29 as Brody Flegal had 18 points and Evan Schriver eight. EADY TRADITION

In the four years of the annual Eady Tradition senior boys basketball doubleheader involving the Renfrew Collegiate Raiders and Arnprior District High School Redmen, neither school has been able to boast a sweep. That tradition certainly remained intact at this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eady event in RCIâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grant Gymnasium Dec. 4. The Raiders rolled past the Redmen 40-18 in the junior clash, but it was Arnprior equally as dominant in the senior confrontation as they rode to a 88-43 verdict over RCI. In previous years, the Eady Tradition was made up of a pair of pre-season games. In 2009 and 2010 the Redmen won the junior game while the Raiders captured the senior contest. RCI won the junior game and Arnprior the senior match-up in 2011, as was the case this year. The boys hoops doubleheader honours retired coach/teacher Gord Eadyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contribution to RCI and ADHS athletics. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This will be the ďŹ rst year that the games mean something in terms of league standings as the boys basketball league has been realigned with north and south divisions,â&#x20AC;? Senior Raiders coach Adam Noack said prior of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s games. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Eady Tradition is an annual set of games between ADHS and RCI that honours Coach Eadyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unparalleled commitment to secondary school athletics and extracurriculars.â&#x20AC;? Unfortunately for both schools, and the rest of the Upper Ottawa Valley High School Athletic Association, the 2012-13 season may be a short one. With files from Peter Clark

Scoreboard fundraisers recognized The volunteer committee that was instrumental in fundraising so the Arnprior District High School football teams could have a new scoreboard at the Oattes Field were guests of honour at the Senior Redmen’s Renfrew County championship game. The scoreboard arrived in mid-season and “is working fabulously,” the committee was told. Above, the Redmen pose with the scoreboard after their 20-6 win over Mackenzie in the title game. Left, some of the committee members after the game, including Steve Prot, Tony and Dawn Andrews and Wendy Mayhew. The volunteers organized garage sales, a door-to-door canvass, pogo sales, sticker sales, donation tables and fixed and painted the bleaches to help raise money for the scoreboard.

Aces hockey team holding food bank drive Saturday during special ‘Aces Day’ EMC sports - The Upper Ottawa Valley Aces Hockey Association is hosting its first annual ‘Aces Day’ in Arnprior this Saturday, Dec. 15. Aces Day is meant to be a showcase for AA hockey in the Valley with each of the Aces seven teams playing. The Aces organization are using Aces Day as an opportunity to give back to the communities that so graciously support its players during the season. This year, the Aces have decided to support the Arnprior and District Food Bank. Playing AA hockey is definitely a privilege, one that not all families can afford. So, the Aces would like to ask all of the friends and extended families of the Aces teams and of the Ottawa Sting, the Rideau St. Lawrence Kings and the Seaway Valley Rapids to support the Arnprior and District Food Bank’s Christmas food drive. The food bank is looking for a wide variety of non-perishable food items and specifically food, diapers and formula to support young mothers and their families. If everyone brings just a few items, it could create a mountain of food to support those less fortunate than ourselves. “Please look for the food bank’s display as you enter the arena,” say Aces officials. Saturday’s schedule at the Nick Smith Centre is as follows: Major Bantam vs. Rideau St. Lawrence Kings, 10 a.m.; Major Atom vs. Rideau St. Lawrence Kings, 10:30 a.m.; Minor Midget vs. Seaway Valley Rapids, 12 p.m.; Minor Peewee vs. Seaway Valley Rapids, 12 p.m.; Major Peewee vs. Seaway Valley Rapids, 1:30 p.m.; Major Midget vs. Ottawa Sting, 2 p.m.; Minor Bantam vs. Ottawa Sting, 3 p.m. “Merry Christmas from the Upper Ottawa Valley Aces.”

Loved ones remembered as hospital lights its trees John Carter john.carter@metroland.com

EMC news – Memories for the Woermke family shone as brightly as the tree lights last Friday at Arnprior District Memorial Hospital. Arnprior Regional Health (ARH) hosted its 13th annual tree-lighting ceremony in front of the hospital with the family of long-time hospital backer and trustee Irvin Woermke having the honour of turning on the Christmas lights. While Woermke’s daughter, Valerie, and her husband Richard Wereley actually pushed the button to activate the lights, the centre of attention was special guest of honour Dorcas Woermke. Irvin’s widow, a resident at the Grove Nursing Home, braved the cold wet evening to attend the ceremony in a wheelchair. Several friends came by to offer well-wishes when the 85-year-old arrived and she helped lead the countdown to the lighting. Valerie Wereley said the ceremony was a “very fitting” tribute to her father. Although he shied away from the spotlight, “I know dad would be very happy,” she said. “The hospital was so dear to his heart … he took (serving on the board) very seriously.” She said the family has many “wonderful memories” of her father and the ceremony added to them. Irvin Woermke served on the hospital board for more than four decades after returning from military service in the Second World War. He was a driving force behind the building of the Grove Nursing Home because he felt seniors should be able to stay in their community, Valerie said. As it turned out, he was living there when he passed away last December and his wife has been a resident for the past eight years. Irvin Woermke was also actively involved in school and church affairs, as well as being a devoted family man. He was named Arnprior’s Senior of the Year two years ago. “He loved serving his community … he felt it was something he should do,” said Valerie. While the rain made for a chilly tree-lighting, more than 100 people showed up for the event. Christmas campaign chair Lori Van Wyk thanked those attending, particularly people who had paid tribute to a loved one by making a donation to the hospital to have a bulb lit. “I’m sure each of them would be proud to be remembered in this way,” she said. She also thanked all the sponsors of the event. Her comments were echoed by ARH CEO Eric Hanna. “We are so happy many of you were able to make it,” he said. Van Wyk noted the 13 tree lightings have raised more than $160,000 for the Partners in Caring campaign. Santa Claus arrived on an Arnprior fire truck, went through the crowd to the delight of youngsters and stayed around for photographs. Local realtor Ted Kelly announced the winners of his Christmas decorating contest, which also raised funds for the hospital. Darlene Thibault and Lee Hodgkinson of Smokey Rose and Suzana McNeil led the throng in Christmas carols. Thanks to sponsors, there were hot dogs, hot chocolate and Timbits to help take off the chill. So far the tree-lighting campaign has raised $25,000 toward the goal of $42,000 to buy a gastroscope for the hospital’s operating room. Acquiring the stomach screening tool would be a upgrade of equipment the hospital has now. People can still contribute to the Christmas tree-lighting campaign by calling the hospital or visiting www.arnpriorregionalhealth.ca.

The family of the late Irvin Woermke had the honour of turning on the Christmas tree lights at Arnprior District Memorial Hospital last Friday. Taking part were Irvin’s widow, Dorcas, surrounded by her grandson Matthew and wife Allison Rabideau, daughter Valerie Wereley and husband Richard, and grand-daughter Kristin Woermke.

Pulling for the United Way JOHN CARTER/METROLAND

New Flyer Industries manager Colin Hooper presents Arnprior District High School senior football player Ryan Kargus and his teammates the trophy for winning this year’s bus pull fundraiser for the Renfrew County United Way. The innovative event attracted a number of teams testing their strength at the company’s Arnprior plant Oct. 17. The Redmen football players came from behind to win the contest. Looking on are Cathi Fairfield, one of the Arnprior area representatives on the United Way board, and Shannon Laughlan, an employee of New Flyer Industries and a main organizer of the event. PHOTOS BY JOHN CARTER/METROLAND

As the ADHS Redmen football players watch before a recent game, Colin Hooper and Shannon Laughlan of New Flyer Industries present $4,3881.89 to the United Way’s Cathi Fairfield.

SUPPLIES NEEDED THIS WEEK: Canned dog food, canned cat food & kitten food, dog cookies

EMC lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house not a creature was stirring not even a mouse. The cats were all brushed and the doggies shaved and all were oh so well behaved. With a dusting of snow on the ground, the smell of pine from the Christmas tree (to pee on), eggnog and hot chocolate (to spill) and the smell of fresh cinnamon in the air you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help but noticed itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Christmas. Although a beautiful time of year, it can also be a very dangerous one for your pets with so much tempting them from food to decorations. Although the decorations on the tree look like fun, they can be very dangerous. Some ornaments are made from glass. If ornaments fall off the tree and break, they can cut the pads on there feet and be fatal if swallowed. Tinsel is a beautiful addition to a Christmas tree. However, if swallowed it can cause major tummy problems not to mention the colourful bowel movements they produce. The Christmas tree itself can be a hazard. Make sure it is in a place that can be closed off because pets love to play in and around them.

Pet Talk

IAN STUPP Getting tangled in the electrical cord and watching all of your hard work come crashing down is a site to see not to mention dangerous. Also be careful with the food. Chocolate contains Methylxanthines, Theobromine and Caffeine. If you believe your pet has ingested large amounts of chocolate, consult your veterinarian for more information. Onions and celery can also be a health concern for your pets. If you must include your pets in the merriment of the season, remember that chicken and turkey bones can cut up their stomachs. Chicken and turkey bones can also cause choking. Alcohol should not be given to your pets and if you

want to prevent stomach upset keep them away from rich, heavy foods. Treat them with a piece of meat, fat and skin removed and free of sauces and gravy. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be happy, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be happy and so will your carpets. Plants can be very dangerous as well. For example: Holly â&#x20AC;&#x201C; This ornamental plant is a common Christmas fixture. Holly has some of the same toxic components as chocolate. Mistletoe â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Is a very toxic Christmas decoration. Mistletoe can cause severe irritation of the digestive tract. Poinsettia â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Is minimally to moderately toxic. These are members of the spurge family. Ingestion of these leaves generally results in mild to moderate digestive upset. A PERSONAL MESSAGE

Christmas is a time for family, friends and pets to gather. From my family to yours have a very merry (and safe) Christmas.

EMC news - Gerald Tracey of Eganville, Reuben Stone of Cobden and members of the Physical Activity Network of Renfrew County have been celebrated as the first winners of the Warden’s Community Service Awards. In chairing his final session of county council Nov. 28, outgoing Warden Bob Sweet presented the awards that recognize individuals, businesses and organizations that make important contributions to their communities. Tracey, who is perhaps best known as publisher of the Eganville Leader newspaper, received the individual service award for his tireless work as a community volunteer. Tracey, 59, said he’s been involved as a volunteer since his early 20s, when he helped raise funds to send a Pikwakanagan citizen to Rome to meet the Pope. Over the years, he has been involved with numerous community projects, more recently as part of a 10-member committee to arrange support for Eganville middle-distance runner Melissa Bishop. These activities included a parade and homecoming after she competed at the 2012 Olympics in London. “It was a very emotional experience to be able to be part of Melissa’s dream,” Tracey told The Arnprior Chronicle Guide EMC. “It was a very humbling experience for everyone on the committee.” Yet, Tracey says two particular projects stand out, as the most rewarding during his storied history as a community volunteer. One happened in the early 2000s when he helped raise money to buy a van for Round Lake resident Kevin Cybulski who was crippled in a logging accident. The other was his fundraising efforts, as committee vice-chair, to help realize construction of the Fairfields seniors residence in Eganville. “The pinnacle, the jewel of all jewels,” said Tracey, “was Fairfields, and working with a dedicated group of people to build a home for seniors, to keep them in their community.” Tracey noted there are clearly many people deserving of the warden’s individual community service award. “I appreciate that someone thought I was worthy. It’s nice to be recognized, but I don’t do things to get recognized,” he said. “My philosophy is, if you can’t leave the world a better place than when you came into it, what’s the point of being here. It’s incumbent on everyone to leave something, to make the world a better place.” As a long-time volunteer, Tracey said he has enjoyed the project challenges and the opportunity to be surrounded by likeminded people. In summarizing Tracey’s involvement, Renfrew County CAO Jim Hutton cited a list that included the Eganville centennial

Making the presentation is Warden Bob Sweet. committee from 1988-91, fundraising for the St. James Catholic Church bell tower after the 1995 fire, and serving on the board of directors for the Renfrew-based Mackay Manor. The Warden’s Community Service Award for a business went to Reuben Stone of Valley Bio. Stone, who grew up in Micksburg and now lives in Cobden, runs one of Ontario’s fastest-growing industrial hemp businesses. Stone’s business also includes a seed and grain conditioning facility that opened last spring. He has also won the Upper Ottawa Valley Chamber of Commerce’s 2009 young entrepreneur award and the 2009 Ontario Premier’s Award for Agri-Food Innovation Excellence. HEMP FARMER HONOURED

Hutton described Stone as a proud fourth-generation farmer in Lower Stafford who has “demonstrated a true commitment to preserving farming in the area, researching and planting different crops, and accessing national and international markets for grain and oil products to revitalize his family farm and develop his corporate business.” “I think we’re just getting started, but it’s nice that this award has gone to an agricultural business in the county,” said Stone, 27. “I am a pretty staunch supporter of agriculture and what it can do economically for the area, and what we can develop here and value-add.” Valley Bio’s products include non-traditional commodities. “We do everything from seed genetics … all the way up to container exports (including gluten-free oats, buckwheat, rye and peas),” said Stone. Meanwhile, hemp remains a major fo-

cus of the business. “Hemp’s an interesting crop. We have a captive and very-quickly growing market. The demand for hemp is expanding 50 per cent a year, and we’re looking to produce very high-quality food products, and fibre and energy all from the same acreage at the same time.” Stone says he hopes Bio Valley and fellow agriculture-based businesses continue to be “innovative and create a lot of new products to serve the community and Canadian society, and feed the world.” NOT-FOR-PROFIT WINNER

The Warden’s Community Service Award for a not-for-profit group went to the Physical Activity Network – Renfrew County. Founded in 2008, PAN-RC is a collaborative body whose 150 member individuals and organizations work to improve access to physical activity. “I hope the award increases public awareness around the importance of physical activity and improving the environment in the communities that we live in, so that everybody has access to healthier choices,” said Physical Activity Network chair Shawna Babcock. “The key pieces, in terms of success,” she said, “have been our collaborative development with the County of Renfrew and the Active Transportation Strategy, and also our work around accessibility for recreation, in the built and the natural environment, to make sure everyone is able to participate fully in physical activity.” Hard lobbying isn’t the goal, says Babcock, but rather working “with municipalities to support them, to ensure our roads, our recreation, our culture, our heritage, is always focused around building healthier communities.”

Ontario Power Generation is a proud sponsor of the Innovation Expo after-school science program being offered by the Town of Arnprior at local schools. The program is one-of-a-kind in Canada, say officials, and explores a variety of topics through very interactive sessions. Above, Gary Kowaluk, front line manager of OPG’s Stewartville generation station, and Arnprior youth programs leader Shay Klimpel, drop into the program at John XXIII. The program is being offered at all local schools.

Holiday Season Special

EMC lifestyle - Mother said if we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quiet down, we could all stay in the house and do chores! We had known since the night before, a Friday, that the next day we would be going into the bush to get our Christmas tree. It was one of the most exciting times during the Christmas holidays. That meant my sister Audrey and I would do a quick stab at tidying the house, and the three brothers could leave cleaning out the cow byre until Sunday! Emerson was in an especially happy mood. He hated shovelling out manure, and even putting it off for one day was a bonus in his eyes. We were sitting around the breakfast table, and Father, who had no patience with frivolity at breakfast time, threatened to cancel the whole deal if Emerson and Everett didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop their silliness. It was always a wonderful day of fun when we went back in the bush for the Christmas tree. The brothers were kicking each other under the table, and stabbing each other with their elbows, and laughing as if they had seen something hilarious. To put an end to the nonsense, and even before Everett was even finished with his porridge, Father ordered him to the barn to hitch up the team and bring the flat-bottomed sleigh around to the house. That ended the carryon at the table. And it gave the rest of us time to get into our winter clothes. To go back in the bush on a bitterly cold winterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s day meant we had to dress as if we were going off to the North Pole. On that day we all wore extra wool socks, pulled up to our knees, and at least two pairs of mitts, and, of course, our hats with the ear lugs on them. The horses were up to their bellies in the deep snow as we went over the West Hill, across fields and deep into the bush. This was where the best

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

spruce trees were. Emerson had staked out the tree he thought would be just perfect. I worried the horses wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make it, as they sunk up to their bellies in the deep snow. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just past that big cluster over there,â&#x20AC;? Emerson said, pointing in the general direction of a clump of spruce trees, towering towards the sky. And there it was. I thought it was just perfect. Tall, with full branches sweeping the snow at the bottom, and it looked like it would reach to the ceiling in our kitchen, where it would spend its days until after New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when the trouble began. Everett said since he was the oldest, he would be wielding the axe. Emerson said he saw the tree first and chopping it down was his job. Everett had a hold of the head of the axe, and Emerson had a firm grip on the handle. It was like a tug-o-war back there in the bush. AXE DISPUTE

Father leaned against the one post at the front of the sleigh and lit his pipe. Audrey and I sat on the edge with our legs hanging down and our feet in the snow. Everett finally wrestled the axe away from Emerson and he flung it towards the tree. Emerson took a swing at Everett and the two of them went down rolling off the sleigh. Now, Father was a patient man, but I could see he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to put up with this nonsense much longer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll tell you what will settle this,â&#x20AC;? he said, taking a deep drag on his pipe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The two of you can head back to the

barns, and since you have so much energy, you can clean out the cow byre. You should be finished by the time we get back.â&#x20AC;? Once Father made up his mind, there wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t much that could change it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now, git. The two of you.â&#x20AC;? Not another word was needed. And the two of them headed back out of the bush, clomping through snow almost up to their waists. And a deep sadness came over me, and I could feel the tears coming. This was supposed to be such a happy time ... a family time. It was always wonderful ... the day we got the tree and went home to steaming cups of hot chocolate, and a piece of Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rich Christmas cake. And now everything was changed. And I felt such sadness for Emerson and Everett. When they had almost reached the edge of the bush, and were well out of earshot, Father again lit his pipe, and tilting his head back, blowing the smoke high into the air, he said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worry, we wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cut down the tree today. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll come back after church tomorrow. Those two will be cooled off by then.â&#x20AC;? Father waited until he was sure Emerson and Everett would be almost back to the barn yard. And then he turned the team around. I took one last look at the big spruce tree that would soon be in our kitchen, the one my brother had picked out long before. I wiped the tears off my face with my mitt. Knowing that we would be coming back, all of us as a family, to take that special tree home, once again made everything right in my world.

EMC lifestyle - The true meaning of the season was on full display at the ArnpriorBraeside-McNab Seniors At Home Program (ABMSHP) on Dec. 6 when Kathy and Andy Armstrong dropped in bearing gifts in the form of a $500 donation to the agency’s ‘Keep the Wheels Turning’ Dare to Care Campaign. The Armstrongs own Andy’s RV on Flat Rapids Road in McNab-Braeside. “We are so grateful to our community and to businesses such as Andy’s RV for their generous support of the Dare to Care Campaign,” said Seniors at Home executive director Dennis Harrington. “It is people like Kathy and Andy who understand the importance of what we do at Home Support that make this community great.” The campaign started in July with every household within Arnprior, McNab-Braeside, (including Burnstown and White Lake), Fitzroy Harbour, and Kinburn receiving a bright yellow envelope requesting donations. Since that date, Seniors at Home continues to receive donations by mail and at the office bringing the total to date at $26,627.20. The amount represents $4,000 more than the agency received during the 2011 Dare to Care Telethon. “We needed to make a change due to the declining revenue realized by the annual telethon and the costs associated with producing the telethon,” explained Harrington. “I am so very pleased with the response we have received from the residents of Arnprior, McNab-Braeside and surrounding areas with our mailout campaign and my personal thanks to each and every one who contributed financially to this campaign.” Since February, the Care Coach has served 396 clients with 9,437 trips. The Care Coach provides well over 200 individual trips per month, providing an independence that many people take for granted. “The Care Coach makes my life and the life of others much easier,” said 84-year-old Frances Parnham of Arnprior. “It (Care Coach) means so much to me and my family. The service is our independence,” added Parnham, a grateful user and generous donator towards the campaign. The campaign will continue into the new year accepting donations by mail or drop-off at the Seniors at Home office 106 McGonigal St. West, Arnprior, Ont. K7S 1M4. Please make your cheque payable to ‘ABM Seniors at Home’. Credit card donations can be made by calling 613-622CARE (2273) between of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday.

At Home. The calendars are available at both the Seniors at Home office and at the Arnprior Book Shop.

More milk for food banks to go with Santa’s cookies EMC news - With the holiday season in full swing, the Dairy Farmers of Ontario (DFO) have announced they are increasing their donation to Ontario food banks through December and January by nearly 150 per cent. As part of an effort to help food banks cope with rising demand and to help spread some Christmas cheer, DFO, on behalf of all its members, will donate an additional 160,000 litres of milk to the Ontario Association of Food Banks (OAFB), on top of the ongoing monthly contribution of 65,000 litres. “We recognize the real need in the community to help those who struggle to provide their families with nutritious food, especially at this time of year,” explained DFO chair Bill Emmott. “It’s crucial for industry to step up. This is our way of giving back to Ontario and the people of our province during the holiday season.” Ontario’s dairy farmers are the single largest donor to the OAFB - donating close to one million litres of milk every year. Throughout the year about 500 dairy farmers in Ontario donate a portion of their own milk. In co-ordination with industry partners the Ontario Milk Transportation Association and the fluid milk processors in the Ontario Dairy Council, the milk is then delivered to food banks throughout the year. “Hunger and access to fresh, nutritious food continues to be a problem in Canada,” says OAFB official Amanda King “DFO has always been one of the biggest supporters of the food bank program, and with this additional donation we will be able to serve thousands more families in need during this busy season.”

Food bank furnishings Colleen Roesler and Braeside Home Furnishings were collecting items for the food bank at the Arnprior mall Dec. 9 in exchange for a chance to win a Sens La-Z-Boy. The draw is Dec. 21.

We are pleased to work with our industry partners to provide more fresh fluid milk to those in need at this holiday time,” he said. The donations, to be delivered beginning this week, will quickly find their way into food hampers across the province.

Survivors recount horrific night of Almonte train wreck By TIFFANY LEPACK tlepack@perfprint.ca

EMC lifestyle – The Almonte Train Wreck has haunted former Fitzroy Harbour resident Ed Muldoon for 70 years. Betty Spinks was never able to ride a train again after the crash. Both boarded the train in Arnprior and are survivors of the Dec. 27, 1942 crash that killed 39 people and injured more than 150 after a troop train struck the back of a local passenger coach in downtown Almonte. Muldoon, Spinks and the entire community will have a chance to remember the tragic night that changed their lives forever next Thursday night when the North Lanark Historical Society and the Town of Mississippi Mills are host a memorial event to mark the 70th anniversary of the crash. The ‘Memorial Tribute on the 70th Anniversary of the Train Wreck’ will take place on Dec. 20 at 7 p.m., at the train wreck monument on Mill Street and Bridge Street. A reception will follow at the Almonte Old Town Hall. Since part one of the history of the train wreck appeared in last week’s edition, Arnprior Chronicle Guide EMC has been contacted by six different survivors of the crash. This week we will journey back 70 years ago with the memories from Muldoon, Spinks and Aenid McMaster. For Muldoon, the train wreck has hit him hard this year and he has conducted a great deal of research into the events that transpired that fatal night. The 85-year-old has travelled thousands of kilometers, going to a number of local library’s to try and uncover

Almonte Train Wreck survivor Ed Muldoon, who boarded the train in Arnprior, was recently featured in Almonte’s Interwoven Past, a documentary by Robert and Sharon Newtown on the history of Almonte. Above is a screen shot of the Muldoon in the film. more information. “I can’t get it out of my mind, I’m driven to it,” he said. The former West Carleton resident currently lives in Kanata and winters down south, but every year he goes back to Almonte to stand in the spot of the crash. His first memory of the night is everyone was so happy on the train. When the then 16-year-old boarded the train in Arnprior, most passengers were in a festive mood, some even loudly singing. “It was fun, it was Christmas and it was a lousy night, cold and raining, but it was joyful,” said Muldoon of the

atmosphere aboard the train. “Everyone was feeling good.” Muldoon, who grew up in Fitzroy Harbour, was on his way back to work in Ottawa at the Department of Agriculture. He remembers that the train was half an hour late arriving to Arnprior and he and his cousin Eileen McMahon wanted to sit in the back coach, but the conductor urged them to push ahead. “He said get in there, at least there was one seat open and she sat down and I was sitting on the arm of her seat. I don’t know why we stayed there,” said Muldoon. “I believe in miracles and

“The engine we had could not get started. It had to back up to get up the grade from a dead start,” explained Muldoon. “It couldn’t get moving … we felt it moving backwards, but I thought that was normal. It was my first time on a train.” He recalls the infamous curve in Almonte and he knows from his research that the following troop train slowed down significantly as it approached the town. “If it did not slow down at the curve, it would have hit us at full speed; the green light was on at the roof of the station. Go figure,” said Muldoon. The passengers on the local train sat unexpectedly in Almonte for less than 10 min-

utes, as they were in a hurry to load the new passengers into the extra cars. “It’s Christmas time, wouldn’t you think you would have had equipment to handle the extra cars,” wondered Muldoon as he recalled his account of the story. “The train could not handle the weight and we paid the price.” Muldoon was sitting beside a large window facing the station as the train began to slowly leave the station when the troop train made contact. “The side of the coach was gone in an instant and a body went through the open space into the station,” said Muldoon.

the only reason I survived is we were sitting in the third coach from the rear.” After Arnprior, the local train passed through Pakenham, but as it was a weekend and a holiday, there was no one on duty at the station, something Muldoon considers a fatal mistake. “Don’t you think there should have been someone on duty at Pakenham?” questioned Muldoon. “I call it killer town. If he was there, the (following troop) train would have been flagged to stop.” One of the last stops the train made was in Blakeney. There appeared to be a defect in the engine, as it was not used to carrying the extra coaches of the local train.

The Almonte Train Wreck monument will be the site of a special ceremony marking the 70th anniversary of the crash on Thursday, Dec. 20 at 7 p.m. slivers, I will never forget her. These are the things that haunt me. I wish I never saw them.” On the trip back to Ottawa, he remembers ‘two suits’ walking up and down the aisle. “They said anyone who could write had to sign a paper; we didn’t know what would happen if we said no. I signed and it said anything in the future I could not bring against the railroad,” said Muldoon. “Apparently that’s what big companies do. They were taking advantage of the people in shock. It was a strange thing.” When Muldoon arrived at the station in Ottawa, there were ambulances waiting to take them to the Civic Hos-

pital. He survived with only a few scratches. “I’ll never know how we survived. It’s a mystery,” he said. “It was all so avoidable.” One thing they could have done was to put flares out in Almonte because the train was illegally parked to warn oncoming trains, he said. “There was no communication with the extra troop train,” said Muldoon. “We had no idea the troop train was gaining.”

Christmas. They were heading back to Appleton with a friend, June Desarmia, as they all had to work at the Mill on Monday morning. “Mother didn’t want us to go because it was a bad night, but we had our taxi waiting for us in Carleton Place,” said Spinks. “The conductors said to go back, but had we gone back we would have never made it,” said Spinks. “I was between the fourth car and I thought we were go-

ing to get scolded again and I didn’t want that to happen.” When she felt the impact of the troop train she was pushed forward. Then I fell back and then the large piece of glass shattered in front of me,” said Spinks. “It knocked Gladys right off the train and onto the track.” Her friend June was lying on the floor near the ashtray. Her brother-in-law Earl Yahn came looking for them from Appleton and couldn’t find them.

“I can still see the wreckage. There was a woman with a fur coat on and her legs were trapped,” she said. “They were pulling dead bodies out and they were shining lights on the pile with whatever they could.” Linda Dregischan contacted the Arnprior Chronicle Guide EMC and explained that her mother, Aenid McMaster, who now lives in Eganville was also on the local train. McMaster was 17 years old at the time of the crash and was returning to Ottawa to her government job. “She got on at Snake River, between Pembroke and Cobden … I asked her about it and she said that she was about halfway up the train and described the old train car that she was in,” said Dregischan. “They didn’t know what had happened and after a while got off to go and see what the hold-up was. A train employee told them not to go back so they didn’t.” Other local survivors who contacted the Arnprior Chronicle Guide EMC include Art and Noreen Charbonneau from Arnprior, Doreen Bradley from Smiths Falls, Bernard Turcotte from Mississauga/Arizona, as well as Doug Snair and Doris Boese from Arnprior.

“The engine was now in our seats,” said Muldoon. I guess we flew literally halfway up the coach to what was left of the front end. I was under the wreckage and was afraid to move. I couldn’t move.” He could hear the people crying for help. Muldoon was trapped under the wreckage for four hours; only the headlight of the troop train illuminated the night sky. “It just plowed through the wooden car, the local was junk,” said Muldoon. “The good people of Almonte opened their doors and arms,” he said. He remembers there was so much wreckage that clean-up efforts were only able to work on one side at a time. Although he does not specifically remember how he got out of the wreckage, he soon found himself on the hospital train back to Ottawa. The conductor had driven the hospital train backwards to reach the site, so had to stick his head out the window to see where he was going. Years later, Muldoon met the driver of the hospital train in Renfrew and his face was badly disfigured from frostbite. Muldoon sat on the hospital train in shock from what he had witnessed. “I can’t describe it, the wheels, the wreckage, the bodies,” he said. “There was a women pinned down with a steel rod through her stomach, there was a woman full of

PARTRIDGE SHEILA PATRICIA

SHIDELER, Ruth (nee Jones)

In loving memory of a very special mom, Sheila Patricia Partridge who passed away December 11, 2005.

It has only been two years since our dearly loved mother, grandmother, and great grandmother passed away and yet the void we feel seems like it has been so much more. As the Christmas holiday, which she so much enjoyed, approaches we all will pause to remember her strength, guidance and love.

A special smile, A special face, And in our hearts, A special place. No words we speak can ever say, How much we miss you everyday. To hear your voice and see your smile, To sit and talk to you awhile. To be together in the same old way, Would be our dearest wish today. Put your arms around her God, Treat her with special care, Make up for all she suffered here. With all our love mom, Your girls Susan and Lynn

Always remembered, Shideler Family

ARMSTRONG, KRISTA SHERRY-LYNN B.Sc., B.Ed,

December 23,1975 to November 18, 2012

It is with the greatest of sadness that Bill, Joan and Kristopher Armstrong announce the passing of their beautiful daughter and sister, Krista Sherry-Lynn on Sunday November 18, 2012 as she slept. She was in the 37th year of an extraordinary life which she lived selflessly, always being a giving and caring person. Krista grew up in the Renfrew area, attended Ross Mineview School then R.C.I. Her thirst for knowledge led her to Trent University for a Bachelor’s degree in Bio-Chemistry and then to Ottawa U. for a Bachelor’s degree in Education (Magna Cum Laude). She moved to Terrace B.C. to persue her dreams of educating children and found much happiness there. After years of medical challenges and career hurdles, life was finally starting to look promising. Krista lived every day to the fullest and her passing has left many with an emptiness that will never be filled. Krista will be forever remembered in the hearts of her Mom and Dad and Brother Kristopher, her grandmother Lillian, her fiancé Paris and his children, numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, friends and others whose lives Krista enriched in her short time with us. A Memorial Service is planned for Saturday, Dec. 15th, 2012 at 11:30 A.M. in Trinity- St. Andrew’s Church, Renfrew, Ontario. CLR399790

Luke Murphy of Shawville will launch his crime-thrilling debut novel, Dead Manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hand, at the bookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s launch party tomorrow night (Dec. 14). The launch takes place at CafĂŠ 349 in Shawville from 7 to 9 p.m. Murphy will provide autographed copies, while pianist Julia Rooney entertains for the launch sponsored by CafĂŠ 349 owner Ruth Smiley-Hahn. There will also be door prizes. Murphy, whose book was recently proďŹ led in the Arnprior Chronicle Guide EMC, sets his novel in the bright lights of Las Vegas. A main character is Calvin Watters, a sadistic African-American Las Vegas debt-collector who is framed for murder. When the brutal slaying of a prominent casino owner is followed by the murder of a well-known bookie, Detective Dale Dayton is thrown into the middle of the

highly political case and leads the largest homicide investigation in Las Vegas in the last 12 years. To redeem himself, Watters must prove his innocence by ďŹ nding the real killer. Meanwhile, he has to avoid the police and protect the woman he loves from a professional assassin hired to silence them. The bookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good read, says Thomas Perry, the New York Times bestselling author of Poison Flower. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dead Manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hand is a pleasure, a debut novel that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t read like one, but still presents original characters and a fresh new voice,â&#x20AC;? writes Perry. Murphy, who works as a school teacher in eastern Ontario and western Quebec, played six years of pro hockey, including four exhibition games with the Florida Panthers. He retired from hockey in 2006. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also working on his second novel. For more on his new book, visit www.yourottawaregion.com and type in Luke Murphy on the search bar.

St. Gabrielâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Church

The St. Gabrielâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Historical Preservation Committee is proud to announce it has published The St. Gabrielâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Memory Book: Springtown, Ontario. Carol McCuaig, a very well-known local historian, has spent the last year gathering stories and researching an endearing story of the pioneers who lived in Springtown and worshipped in the beautiful Roman Catholic Church atop the hill overlooking the mighty Madawaska. McCuaig visited and interviewed many folks who remembered going to St. Gabrielâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Tales of weddings, baptisms, ďŹ rst communions and funerals were shared by parishioners and/or their descendants. The old stone church was not the ďŹ rst one built in Springtown. The author follows Father John McNulty, a 19th century Irish priest from County Mayo, as he treks about the Valley building log chapels. One such chapel was St. Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in Springtown, then Bagot. A list of the families attending St. Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

was researched and compiled by the author. The donation of land and the building of St. Gabriel, the Archangel church by the McCrea family, is beautifully presented. Masses were held in the McCrea kitchen for a time and after St. Gabrielâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s was built, their home was a welcome place to eat and sing and be regaled by stories, sometimes by a missionary priest who stayed over in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the priestâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; at the top of the stairs. The graves have been described with a detailed genealogy, where possible. Readers will be amused by some of the stories, and brought to tears by the number of babes who died at or shortly after birth and often their mothers with them. McCuaig has a gentle way of telling these stories. You can hear her voice and see the Welsh twinkle in her eyes as you read. Her subjects are treated with kindness and respect. Copies of the book are available for $25 at McCreaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Climate Care in Renfrew, Most Precious Blood Church, in Calabogie, or by mail order from McCuaig, 127 McCuaig Road, R.

EMC entertainment - Country music fans in Ottawa and the Valley are in for a pre-Christmas treat when Juno-nominated Canadian country artist John Landry performs in three smaller venues this week. He is playing in Barrhaven tonight (Thursday), Almonte Friday and Hardwood Lake Saturday. The Gaspé, Quebec born country music star has a large following nation-wide and the fact Landry is a member of the Canadian Armed Forces is likely to win him even more friends. Captain John Landry is currently stationed in Gander, Newfoundland and is part of ‘The Outcasts’, 103 Search and Rescue Squadron. The rescue squadron flies CH-109 Cormorant helicopters from one of the busiest bases in Canada. Landry has continued to write and record. He recently released his fourth CD which, appropriately, is titled ‘Changing Man.’ He describes it as “a true reflection of my life over the past few years. “I got married, started a family and joined the Canadian Air Force. I’d say things have been changing for me,” he chuckles. “My decision to join the Air Force did not happen overnight,” he explains. “It’s been a lifelong dream to fly for the military.” In mid-December he returns to his first love, country music! Beginning Thursday, Dec. 13 he will play three 8 p.m. shows in as many nights in Eastern Ontario. Landry will open his Christmas season

John Landry plays the Almonte Old Town Hall Dec. 14. Tickets cost $25 for that concert and another one at Hardwood Lake Saturday. tour at Greenfield’s Pub and Eatery in Barrhaven Mall tonight. The next night (Friday, Dec. 14) he will perform at the Almonte Old Town Hall. On Saturday, Dec. 15 he will headline a show at Mapleton House, an increasingly popu-

lar dinner and concert destination in the upper Ottawa Valley, near Palmer Rapids. Morgan Adams, who runs Ottawa-based Northern Star Management, is the promoter behind Landry’s holiday season visit to

the region. He says the Mapleton House show will be the second in as many years for the popular country artist. “Last Christmas we did a show with John (at Mapleton House). “The place was absolutely packed. People came from as far away as Keswick (in the Lake Simcoe region) to see John play,” Adams outlines. The concert promoter notes that all three venues are relatively intimate locations which will add to the atmosphere. “These are big shows for places like Greenfield’s and the Old Town Hall in Almonte. It’s not every day someone of John’s caliber plays smaller venues so I’m hopeful people will respond to these rare opportunities,” Adams says. The brief tour is entitled ‘John Landry’s Holiday Wish’ but Adams says it will feature a good mix of music. “John will play his regular hits and after the intermission he’ll incorporate some Christmas stuff as a salute to the season.” The 42-year-old Landry launched his debut album ‘Forever Took too Long’ in 1999. Two singles from the CD ‘There You Were’ and ‘Bit by Bit’ both reached the Canadian country singles Top 10. The same year he was named Rising Star of the Year by the CCMA. In 2000 Landry was nominated for a Juno in the Best Country Male Artist category. Also in 2000 he was the CCMA Male Artist of the Year.
