Petawawa mayor to seek fifth term as warden STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com

Bob Sweet may be front and centre in Renfrew County politics for another year. Just before the Sept. 28 session of Renfrew County council ended, the 68-yearold announced he’ll seek an unprecedented fifth term as warden, for the year 201112. The Petawawa mayor was the popular warden in 2004, 2005 and 2006, then returned as a regular member of county council until he won a fourth term as warden in late 2010. Sweet, who has been involved in municipal politics since 1988, says there is plenty of Renfrew County business to tend to. “There’s still a lot of work to do, particularly around the CP rail issue. I want to be able to head that (potential acquisition) up and get that moving forward,” said Sweet, just a few minutes after council approved the naming of Sweet and fellow county councillors RayeAnne Briscoe and Don Rathwell to Renfrew County’s CP rail corridor advisory committee. “I want to be able to work with Lanark County and Papineau-Cameron (to develop this project).” To which he added: “We have an opportunity to turn a sow’s ear into a silk purse.” There’s no preliminary asking price for the soon-tobe-abandoned railway line, which runs from Smiths

Bob Sweet, who unveiled the county’s commemorative book of Expo 150 during last week’s session of county council, looks to another busy year in 2012. Sweet has announced he’ll seek another term as county warden. Falls to Mattawa, but county officials were scheduled to learn more at a meeting with CP on Monday, Oct. 3. Sweet said he’s also concerned that social-services uploading back from the county level to the Province may end. Tim Hudak, leader of the Progressive Conservatives, has not committed to continuing the uploading of previously-downloaded social services to the Province. Hudak, meanwhile, is

in a potential dogfight with Dalton McGuinty of the Liberals to win the Oct. 6 provincial election. “I’m quite concerned, frankly, about the provincial-municipal upload, and I think that’s important,” said Sweet, noting that discontinuance could result in Renfrew County being saddled with additional costs of close to $2 million between now and 2018. “It’s important we have a strong voice with regards

to that,” said Sweet, who sat on the municipal-provincial fiscal review committee that kick-started the social upload. Discontinuance of that social services uploading, said Sweet, would be “a step backwards from where we were. If this is the tip of the iceberg of what could happen, this would be a bad situation for the County of Renfrew.” Sweet says he’d like to have a role in other economic development projects to enhance the economic wellbeing of the county. County councillors were supportive of Sweet’s decision to seek another term as warden. “If someone’s doing a good job, you don’t try to replace them,” said Peter Emon, who plans to nominate Sweet. “I think he’s the obvious choice,” said Jennifer Murphy of Bonnechere Valley. “I’m very pleased and privileged to hear that (he’ll run again),” said Raye-Anne Briscoe of Admaston-Bromley.” If predictions of recession-like times come true in the near future, added Briscoe, “We couldn’t have a better leader to guide us through turbulent times.” Five wardens have served two terms for the county – David Stewart, Barry Moran, Bill Schweig, Janice Visneskie and Don Rathwell – and all since 1998. Sweet is the only Renfrew County warden to have served three or more terms.

Emon presses for action on Denbigh ambulance STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com

Greater Madawaska Mayor Peter Emon has urged county council and Renfrew County Warden Bob Sweet to ensure ambulance coverage in the Denbigh area remains in place around the clock. Emon was addressing the Sept. 28 session of Renfrew County council. “I want to make sure it doesn’t fall off the table. I want to make sure county council and the warden recognize the seriousness of the situation,” Emon later told The Mercury. “The removal of ambulance services to an already-disadvantaged area with an increasingly aging population is not good health-services planning.” Concern continues about the prospects of keeping the Denbigh ambulance station open. This year, Lennox and Addington County is considering whether to close the station.

Meanwhile, Lennox and Addington is seeking Requests for Proposal along the Highway 41 corridor, in the Northbrook-Cloyne area for an ambulance station, to be ready for use in 2013. That new location could serve Lennox and Addington ambulances between Denbigh and Kaladar. “They will be closing their Northbrook ambulance station in June of 2013. “As part of their review, they think they can combine the Northbrook and Denbigh station, and put it in Cloyne,” said Emon. But the Greater Madawaska mayor says it makes a lot of sense to remain in Denbigh “because it serves the corners of the four counties,” said Emon. His reference was to the counties of Renfrew, Lennox & Addington, Frontenac, and Hastings. FIND FOUR-WAY SOLUTION Emon says the ideal solution is for

the four counties to fund a Denbigharea station, whose annual operating costs of about $700,000 per year are expected to rise to nearly $1 million by 2014. “The truth is that Lennox and Addington pays only half of that, with the province paying the other half,” said Emon. “So even if it’s $1 million, that would represent an annual commitment of $125,000 per county. Which is pretty cheap to keep that service in place.” That might fly in the face of how municipal billing is done for crossborder paramedic service in Ontario, Renfrew County emergency services director Mike Nolan told The Mercury. Emon responded, “I don’t mind doing something new.” Discussions between Renfrew and the Lennox and Addington paramedic services have gone on for a few months, said Nolan. See ‘DENBIGH’, Page 5

Mountain Chute is one of the pioneers in Ontario Power Generation’s network of generating stations, but a pioneer that needs a facelift. Mountain Chute, which houses two generating units, was the first hydro electrical project in the region following Cornwall’s R.H. Saunders development on the St. Lawrence River in 1958. The two generating units at Mountain Chute went into production in 1967, but upgrades are now in order. Upgrades to the No. 1 unit were completed last year. Rehab of the No. 2 unit began in August 2011 and is scheduled for completion by July 2012. The multi-million dollar project is taking place partly on site, partly with upgrading or rebuilding of parts from the generating unit in New Liskeard and Niagara Falls. More than 40 years ago, Mountain Chute represented the completion of the first redevelopment stage of the Madawaska River, to meet peak requirements on Ontario’s hydro grid. Later stages included additions to capacities at Barrett Ontario Power Generation’s Mountain Chute generating station on Madawaska River. Chute and Stewartville generating stations. The Mountain Chute dam is 55 metres high and spans the river for about 400 metres. Its two generating units are massive. The scroll case, the receiving basin for Madawaska River water that turns the unit’s turbine, is 24 feet high. The thrust bearing, alone, stands 3.5 metres high and weighs about 57 tons. The estimated weight of each generating unit is 400 tons, including a 77-ton turbine. When operating, the unit generates 112,000 horsepower to harness the river’s energy. The unit under repair used to have a full capacity of 84 megawatts, but that fell to 72 megawatts over time. The repairs are referred to as a generator rewind. Twenty-two employees are working on site, including staff seconded from other sites for the rehab project. The work, says project manager Chris Hamel, is an “investment in long-term sustainability, to provide reliable, clean and renewable electricity for the ProvThe (circular) stator in this Mountain Chute generating unit dwarfs the rehab production ince of Ontario.” The recent and current upgrade should project manager Gerry Foote, left, and project manager Chris Hamel.

McLaughlin of Renfrew and Barry Robillard, standing, of Pakenham do measurements inside generating unit No. 2. extend the life of the Mountain Chute generating station for another 40 years. Other investments could create additional shelf life. At any one time, OPG is upgrading five or six of its generating units. The biggest of present rehab projects is the Lower Notch generating station, which powers 132-megawattt units near New Liskeard.

Another successful Rural Ramble celebration is in the history books. The final weekend wrapped up Sunday afternoon with a salute to culture and the arts. In McNab-Braeside Township, the spotlight shone on Ballintotas Alpacas in Braeside and the Celtic heritage weaving skills of Bob Hinchley at Kippen Tartans. Since 2003 Shannon and Chris Rouleau have operated their alpaca farm, named after the small town in Ireland where Shannon’s late father was born. The cashmere-like fibre is shorn from the alpacas once a year and used in handcrafts such as socks, blankets, mittens and scarves. The environment-friendly products are promoted as soft, hypo-allergenic, lightweight and breathable. People interested in checking out their product line can see them out at the Cobden Taste of the Valley Oct. 15, the Deep River Christmas Craft Show Nov. 5 and 6, Christkindlemart Nov. 26 to 27 in Pembroke, and the Cobden Christmas Craft Show Dec. 3 and 4.

Composter meets town’s standards SHERRY HAAIMA sherry.haaima@metroland.com

The Town of Renfrew has done all it can to help resolve a 15-month-long dispute between neighbours on Bonnechere Street, say officials. “It’s been a long road, the town and committee has done their job,” said Renfrew development and works director Mike Asselin at a committee meeting Monday morning (Oct. 3). At issue is a composter that Theresa Hass believed does not comply with municipal regulations. Turns out, say town officials, Hass’ neighbour’s composter does meet municipal requirements and both Hass and the homeowner will be notified. “I sincerely hope this will bring this thing to an end,” said committee chair Audrey Green. The homemade wooden composter meets the town’s health regulations. “If we smell something, I guess, we have to put up with it,” said Green. The town can make suggestions as to what is composted, but that’s it. After a Sept. 22 committee meeting, the decision was made to offer a commercial composter to the homeowner, but it has since been determined the specs of the composter conform to the town’s standards. Theresa Hass and Nicole VaillancourtHass were at the Sept. 12 council meeting to outline their complaints, saying nothing has been done to resolve the issue and their neighbour’s composter continues to smell and attract animals. The type of composter the homeowner

is using is suitable for grass and yard clippings and not food, which is being put in, said Hass. All parties were then invited to the development and works meeting Sept. 22 for further discussion. “It’s a pity neighbours don’t get along and have to bring their battles to council,” said Coun. Andrew Evans, a member of the committee. He said he had visited the site, as did committee member Jim Millar, and not found odour to be an issue on the day he was there. Millar said there was an odour on the day he visited. Hass joined the committee for the meeting and representatives for the homeowner explained she was scheduled to attend, but had to deal with a pressing issue. The homeowner had done some work to the composter in at attempt to bring it up to code, but the odour and animal problem is not fixed, Hass told the committee. The bylaw states composters must be enclosed, said Hass and while Asselin indicated he sees the structure as enclosed, she said the space is allowing animals to access the waste. “The problem has not been solved whatsoever,” said Hass. While modifications were made to the composter, the food source has been established and animals continue to access it, said Hass. “I don’t have a problem with composting. I have a problem with this one,” she said. Asselin said the issue has made it clear council and staff should take a look at the composting bylaw to resolve the issues encountered in this case.

Greater Madawaska Council has pushed for a resolution recommending the Denbigh ambulance station stay open. The Denbigh Ambulance Station is a valued and necessary service for the safety and well-being of residents of the northern areas of Lennox & Addington County, Hasting County, Frontenac County, and the western areas of Renfrew County, says Greater Madawaska Township Mayor Peter Emon. Greater Madawaska endorses the concept that the Denbigh ambulance station, operated by Lennox and Addington County, run around the clock, seven days a week, for the safety and benefit of the community it serves in the four counties. The resolution has been forwarded to all the councils involved, plus MPPs, MPs and the Minister of Health and Long Term Care. “(Renfrew) County council is very aware that it is important to us,” Emon told his council Sept. 29. Emon said there is work to do if they are to be successful in keeping the ambulance service open. “If it closes, it would be around

June (2012). That gives us some time. “I don’t have anything definite to tell you,” he added. While meeting mayors of other townships, Emon introduced the idea of moving the ambulance service to Griffith should Denbigh be closed. COUNCIL BRIEFS Greater Madawaska council approved a motion to have the speed bump removed from Madawaska Street in Calabogie. The township recently received a letter, signed by a group of concerned citizens, offering eight reasons to do away with the speed bump. Council has given the green light to Renfrew County employee Bruce McIntyre to make an application for a Celebrate Ontario grant of up to $75,000. The funds would go to help with promotion and entertainment fees for future blues and ribfests at Calabogie Peaks. The money will allow market penetration deeper into the eastern Ontario and Ottawa markets, and to attract name performers. It was noted that only events that are ongoing are eligible for this grant. Hence, Renfrew County 150 was ineligible because it was a one-time thing.

Huge insurance savings for county STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com

The County of Renfrew is saving more than $200,000 on its next annual insurance protection package. The county is not renewing its agreement with OMEX, whose 2011 insurance package cost $784,773. OMEX offered a new package for 2012 of $691,910, but that was still considerably lower than the

bids of three other companies. The lowest bid, which was approved during the Sept. 28 session of county council, was $469,063 plus taxes. That price was offered by Jardine Lloyd Thomson Canada Inc., in partnership with Municipal Insurance Services Ltd. Jardine’s bid was nearly $30,000 less than the next lowest bid, by BFLCanada. Another bid, by Cowan, was also considerably lower than OMEX’s.

County discussion: Denbigh ambulance Continued from Page 2 Nolan said he anticipates a solution will be in place before year’s end, because service would be unacceptable without an ambulance station in Denbigh. If it’s closed, Emon said Greater Madawaska would lobby Ren-

frew County and the Ministry of Health for an ambulance station in Griffith, about 15 minutes from Denbigh. Otherwise, the closest Renfrew County ambulance stations, in Eganville and Renfrew, would be more than 40 minutes away.

Happy Thanksgiving weeekend

150 have reached $515,560, according to Expo 150 treasurer Raye-Anne Briscoe’s financial statement on page eight of the 42-page commemorative publication. Revenue of $515,560, included $200,000 from the County of Renfrew’s reserves, as approved by county council more than two years ago. A few expenses remain, but Sweet figured the county may end up $1,000 in the red after all expenses are incurred. He said a plaque will be installed at county headquarters in Pembroke, along with a triplestreet sign referring to Sweet Street, Gidday Gidday Avenue and Renfrewshire Boulevard.

There are already many vivid and positive memories from Expo 150, which served as Renfrew County’s 150th-anniversary celebration this year. But county council took the opportunity during its Sept. 28 county council meeting to reflect on several of the highlights of that successful June 9 to 12 event. “It has been 108 days since the event and it seems like it only took place yesterday,” said Sweet, who also served as volunteer chairman of Expo 150 at the Pembroke and Area Airport. Many of his reflections emphasized the invaluable con-

tributions of numerous businesses and the estimated 1,000 volunteers. “It was a wonderful job by a whole host of individuals,” said Sweet. “There were over a thousand volunteers (and) staff who came together and made it possible to really be proud of who they are and what they are, showcasing something that was extremely successful.” Sweet shared several of his reflections while unveiling Expo 150’s commemorative book. The book is entitled A Journey Through Time, which was also the anniversary celebration’s theme. One thousand copies were printed at a cost of $5,000. Entire expenses for Expo

‘Our impact cannot be matched’ Continued from Page 5 The latter is a reference to the Scottish county after which the County of Renfrew is named. Another possible expense relates to the initial plan to plant 150,000 seedlings in the county. About 25,000 seedlings have been planted, but how many are purchased for additional planting remains to be seen. That’s because the cost was supposed to be about 15 cents per seedling, but turned out to be $1. While it was a tiring two years of preparation, Sweet said the task was tremendously rewarding. “It was great to see the event start from nothing and evolve into what it is and what it was,” he added. Sweet also expressed confidence that the business community will reap the rewards after being showcased at Expo 150. Several businesses combined to donate $226,298 toward the event, in addition to in-kind contributions of more than $200,000. Former warden Don Rathwell,

who asked Sweet to commit his unpaid time to be Expo 150 chair, personally thanked Sweet for the leadership he provided in that role. Rathwell then presented Sweet with a clay-relief sculpture made by renowned Burnstown artist Richard Gill. The work is of a train crossing a Renfrew County waterway by bridge. There were several success stories at Expo 150, but Sweet said those successes clearly included Renfrew County Idol, the world-record-setting gathering of fiddlers and step dancers on stage, and the Freedom of the County event. As the commemorative publication states of Freedom of the County: “For the first time, freedom of the entire county was granted to the troops of CFB Petawawa as well as the cadets from the county and legion members.” That event featured 275 soldiers from Canadian Forces Base Petawawa, plus Legion Branch 517’s colour guard and more than 50 cadets.

A Journey Through Time includes sections on volunteers, corporate sponsorship, committees, achievements and a section of recommendations “for consideration for any future events of a similar nature to Expo 150.” The publication also features more than 100 photos, including a 29-photo layout on Renfrew County Idol. If there was a message learned from Expo 150, said Sweet on page one of A Journey Through Time, “it was that together we are a region worth shouting about from the mountaintops. “Our accomplishments are known around the world. “Our passion is known around our communities. “Our impact is one which cannot be matched by any other place. That is worth talking about more often.” Each copy of A Journey Through Time distributed to county councillors and members of the media also contained a leather bookmark from Scotland’s Renfrewshire council.

Horton Township is acquiring the use of a dry fire hydrant at the new George Jackson Toyota property for a dollar. The Toyota dealership’s new home, which is scheduled to open later this year, has a water catchment basin capable of holding one million litres of water. The property will also house two dry hydrants, one at the basin’s southwest corner for ready access to the new Toyota headquarters, and one at the basin’s northwest corner. The northwest location provides easy access for the Horton Fire Department, should the fire department require water for a fire anywhere in the township. “Being a good corporate citizen, we expect our lot will be blocked and locked after business hours, and that’s not good for the township (in the event of a fire),” said George Jackson Toyota coowner Warren La Rocque. “This way, the fire department has access to water seven days a week, 24 hours a day.” By selling the dry hydrant to the township for a dollar, and providing access to the water for another dollar, both sides benefit, says La Rocque. Each of the dry hydrants cost about $4,000, said La Rocque. The hydrants should be installed by the end of October. “In the name of liability, it’s a good idea,” for both parties, said La Rocque. Furthermore, he said the fire department will also have access to the business’s own dry

hydrant, if necessary. “We’re not gong to restrict access. If there’s an emergency, you don’t think about restricting access.” Horton Fire Chief Randy Corbin says the addition of the township’s fire dry hydrants is welcomed. “It just means we have quicker access to water over that stretch (of Garden of Eden Road), instead of having to go into town (to the Bonnechere River),” said the chief. The agreement calls for the township to keep the dry hydrant in safe condition at all times, including annual inspection, maintenance and testing. The dry hydrants can be used for fighting fires or training, says the agreement. With quick access to the dry hydrant, Horton’s volunteer fire department won’t have to break ice to obtain water during the winter. The two dry hydrants are also the first in Horton Township. Meanwhile, a proposal is in the works to install a diesel-powered back-up pump at the Bonnechere River boat launch. Proposed as a joint project for Horton and McNab-Braeside townships, the pump would be housed in a small building and have an electrical hook-up. If approved, the facility would allow for the department to load a truck with water in less than five minutes. Otherwise, it takes 10 to 15 minutes to load a truck with a full load of water, says Corbin. Normal equipment pumps water

at about 850 gallons a minute. The diesel set-up would allow water to be pumped at 1,500 gallons per minute. “We’re trying to get more modernized, and this will make things easier for everyone,” said Corbin. The fire department took another step toward modernization

with the recent purchase of its new thermal imaging camera. The cost was more than $9,000. The unit will be on display at its open house Saturday (Oct. 8) from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. as part of Fire Prevention Week. There will be hot dogs for the kids. Corbin said the camera is “quite beneficial because you

EDITORIAL

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Recognize youth leaders A

cross Ontario, and right here in Renfrew and area, young individuals are working hard to make a difference in their own communities and around the world. The Ontario Community Newspapers Association (OCNA), through The Renfrew Mercury is currently accepting nominations for the 2011 Ontario Junior Citizens of the Year Awards. Founded in 1950, the Ontario Community Newspapers Association (OCNA) is a non-profit industry association representing over 300 community newspapers, including this one. Coordinated by the OCNA since 1981, the Ontario Junior Citizen of the Year Awards Program has recognized the best of Ontario’s youth with the help of sponsorship from TD Canada and Direct Energy and support from the Office of the Lieutenant Governor of Ontario. Do you know a young person who stands out from the rest? Nominate a special individual who goes above and beyond what is expected of someone their age, someone who invests their spare time in community service, someone who looks past their own needs and inspires those around them. ‘Good kids’ can be found everywhere. They are our sons, daughters, nieces, nephews, grandchildren, students, team players and employees. Nominating these young leaders for a Junior Citizen award is a chance for them to stand in the spotlight, to be recognized for their dedication and selflessness. The Junior Citizen awards program is open to youths between the ages of six and 17. Nominations will be accepted until Wednesday, Nov. 30, 2011. Up to 12 nominees will be selected as the final recipients for the 2011 Ontario Junior Citizen of the Year Award and they will be recognized at a special ceremony in Spring 2011. Nomination forms and further information is available online at www.ocna. org/junior_citizen, or by calling the OCNA office at 905-639-8720, ext. 239. Remember, today’s youth are tomorrow’s leaders. There’s one in every crowd and we think they deserve some recognition and encouragement to continue making a difference.

The occasion was A Tamarackin’ Tour of the Ottawa Valley. As relative newcomers to the Valley with an interest in earlier times, we were fully engaged in all aspects of the presentation. The songs, the stories and the dances each resonated with our understanding of conditions and events as we had imagined. Director Ish Theilheimer and the Stone Fence Ensemble should be proud of their accomplishment in bringing quality entertainment to Eganville. Be assured that we will be encouraging our friends to share in this event. Stan and Lois McCormack Calabogie

Tracey’s Dairy a Valley favourite This is the fourth of a five-part series profiling five original local businesses who have been involved with Taste of the Valley since its inception in 2007.

BRUCE MCINTYRE Renfrew County Media Relations

On Oct. 16, 2007, a group of 25 local producers showcased their products to over 2,000 visitors on a Saturday morning. Of those 25 local producers, there were five local businesses that have come back to Cobden every year to take part in Taste of the Valley. This week, I want to introduce you to one of those five local businesses. You will have a chance to meet them and an additional 90 vendors at the fifth edition of Taste of the Valley in Cobden on Oct. 15. Can you name a summertime treat that can actually be enjoyed year round, whether you are two years old or 100? Can you name a local business that always attends Taste of the Valley in Cobden, but refuses to sell its product, and instead prefers to give away samples to anyone that asks? If you guessed Tracey’s Dairy and Ice Cream in Renfrew, you are right! As one of the original Taste of the Valley vendors who comes back to Cobden every year, Tracey’s owners Mark and Melany Tracey always mark the October event on their calendar. The original dairy was built in the same location on Lorne Street in the Town of Renfrew in 1935. It became Tracey’s Ice Cream Dairy in 1980. From its modest beginnings, Tracey’s has become one of the largest exporters of ice cream located in Eastern Ontario. Today, Tracey’s transports its many dairy products across Canada and is popular on the coast of British Columbia. The agricultural land surrounding Renfrew provided an ideal source of milk for the dairy when it started almost 80 years ago, and today many of those original dairy farms still supply the dairy with its key ingredient for daily production. When you visit Tracey’s Ice Cream at

Taste of the Valley, you are always met with the smiling face of one of the owners, Melany Tracey. One reason Melany has been a part of Taste of the Valley is her chance to meet with so many local residents and to introduce them and the many visitors to the quality of local ice cream. Although the organizers of Taste of the Valley have always tried to convince Mark and Melany to actually sell ice cream at Taste of the Valley, they have always refused. Melany says there is no greater joy than watching a child’s face light up when they actually get free ice cream when they are out with Mom and Dad. And, yes, Melany insists that Mom and Dad try some ice cream as well! Melany has been producing ice cream at Tracey’s since 1988 and has enjoyed every minute of it. Today, Tracey’s has been able to establish a stable presence in the market, and is has now partnered with major companies to expand its base and produce more ice cream. For local residents and tourists, when they think of Tracey’s Ice Cream, they often think of the famous ice cream dairy bar located at the production centre. On any given summer day, especially on Sundays, you will often see long lineups of people waiting to get their favourite flavour. Melany says their most popular flavour has been, and still is, vanilla. Close behind is chocolate cheese cake and Bolaro ice cream. Many of the students who worked at the dairy bar over many summers often come back to reflect on their experiences at Tracey’s. Many of those students now have children of their own, and this new generation of ice cream lovers continues the tradition of enjoying a local product. So when you go to visit Taste of the Valley in Cobden, be sure to look for the giant Kids Zone, because that is where you will find Melany with a big smile, and an even bigger lineup of kids of all ages waiting to sample some of the finest ice cream made anywhere.

The Corporation of the Town of Renfrew Once again, the Town of Renfrew will be conducting drinking water sampling and testing for lead to comply with Ontario Regulations. The town is seeking volunteer test sites in single family homes, multi-unit buildings, commercial properties, and industrial properties. Under the provincial legislation, the municipality must test the drinking water for lead at 40 private residences, 4 non-private residences, between June 15, 2011 and October 15, 2011. • Tests would be performed at older residences suspected of having lead pipes or pipes with lead solder. • Homes built before the mid-1950s could have lead pipes. • Lead solder was used to join copper pipes and was phased out in the late 1980s; any new construction done after those years should not be affected by lead in the piping system. Since the Town must access homes to test for the presence of lead, we are looking for volunteers to allow the Town of Renfrew staff access to their homes to collect samples. There will be NO charge to the resident for the testing of the lead sample. Each sample will total three litres in each location and the regulations obligate the town to advise tenants of the test results as soon as they are available. The higher risk individuals affected by lead that exceeds the standards are pregnant women, infants and children under the age of 6 years old. The Town will require permission of the property owner to take the samples. If you wish to be added to the list of potential test sites please contact the Development and Works Department, Municipal Garage, Darl Gaudette at 613-432-4147.

Turning Me to We A group of 17 inspired RCI students returned from Toronto on Tuesday, Sept. 27, having just participated in the fourth annual We Day event. The group was enthusiastic about the experience, to say the least. It is an annual event organized by Free the Children that hopes to motivate youth to fight injustice. It is based on the idea that young people can make a difference. As described by We Day founder Craig Kielburger: “Fighting injustice can be hip.” According to the We Day website, “We Day has become the movement of our time, inspiring thousands of youth and building a community of young people dedicated to social change.” The event featured a line-up of social activists, speakers and musical acts that included Grammy Award winner Nelly Furtado, actor Danny Glover, Dr. Patch Adams, Rick Hansen and singer Nikki Yanofsky, among others. The website cites that over 160,000 people have attended the We Day since 2007. In the 2010-2011 school year, youth volunteered 1.7 million hours of their time, raised $5.4 million in donations to support local and global organizations and collected more than 519,000 pounds of food for food banks. Renfrew Collegiate students who participated in We Day are grateful for the opportunity. “It was life changing,” said participant

CHARLIE BOSSY RAIDER RAP Catherine Penney. In the spirit of We Day, RCI has again organized a food drive. Student volunteers will be coming to neighbourhood doors to ask for your donation of canned food on Tuesday, Oct. 4. Thank you to all volunteers who gave up their time for the event. Renfrew Collegiate students are proud of making a difference in both our local and global communities.

Youth suicide awareness and prevention The Renfrew OPP and the Renfrew Police Services Board are sponsoring an information session on youth suicide awareness and prevention. Please plan attend an evening of information on suicide, how to recognize risk and how to respond when someone you care about needs help.

Speakers include Annmarie Nicholson, trainer of applied suicide intervention skills from the Royal Ottawa Health Care Group, and James Thomas who will speak about his experience with his sister’s suicide. The session runs Wednesday Oct. 26 at 7 p.m. in the St. Joseph’s Catholic High School cafeteria.

St. Joseph’s students rally for annual Thanksgiving food drive As Thanksgiving approaches, the students and staff at St. Joseph’s Catholic High School want to do their best to help the community. On Monday, Oct. 3, SJHS started its annual Thanksgiving food drive, which will continue until Friday, Oct. 7. To add some fun, the food drive will be run as a competition between the different spirit-day house colour teams. The winning team will then receive a point towards the house colour cup awarded at the end of the year. Stay tuned for the final amount of food we raise! Over the past several weeks, universities and colleges from all across Ontario have been visiting SJHS to make presentations to interested graduating students. These presentations are a great way to get answers to the questions that students may have about a particular university or college, or about entering post-secondary school in general. These presentations offer a lot of information about the school, including different programs, housing, cost and sports. On Monday, Oct. 17, SJHS will once again be hosting the annual University night, where all universities from across Ontario come and do presentations for any interested student in Renfrew County. Parents are more than welcome to join their child to learn about the schools, and ask questions of their own. The evening will generally allow par-

This evening provides an excellent opportunity to gather information to assist students and parents in making such an important decision. On Tuesday, Oct. 4, St. Joseph’s Catholic High School joined with St. Thomas the Apostle Elementary School to celebrate a Mass of thanksgiving. This mass was said by Father Ryan Holly, who is a the new associate priest with Fr. Peter Proulx at St. Francis Xavier (SFX) parish. Students also assisted by singing in the choir and alter serving. On behalf of Saint Joseph’s Catholic High School, I would like to welcome Father Holly to the SFX parish and SJHS school community. On Friday, Oct. 7, there will be our first Jaguar Day of the school year. This is a day where student dress in either school apparel, or our school colours garnet and gray. This day will be lead by our two spirit ministers, Christine Helferty and Eric Watters. It is planned that the first Friday of every month will be a Jaguar Day. GO. JAGS. GO!

Hannibal set to call it a career at the Wing PETER CLARK peter.clark@metroland.com

The AFAC Wing will be abuzz on Saturday night. Great North Wrestling stars will be adding a few new bruises at the 7:30 p.m. event. Highlighting an action-packed night will be World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) legend and GNW regular The Honky Tonk Man. Honky Tonk will be teaming with Renfrew’s own Curtis The Afterparty Mclean to face off against Charming Chaz Lovely and Platinum Preston Perry in the special attraction of the night. But that isn’t the only notable confrontation on the eight-match card. Ottawa’s Devon Nicholson – known to wrestling fans as Hannibal – will be stepping into the squared-circle for the final time. He’ll be taking on seven-foot Darko in his final match. It’s been an interesting ride for Nicholson. “Ever since I or my parents can remember, I always wanted to be a wrestler,” he said. “I’ve been obsessed with wrestling all my life. I started promoting wrestling events in my backyard when I was about six years old and kept doing it until I was about 13, and the crowds were getting too big and rowdy and my parents made me stop. “I wrestled amateur in high school and was an OFSAA (Ontario high school) champion and a junior national champion in 2001. I didn’t get a single point scored against me in high school competition in 2001 and I actually wrestled amateur at the Wing a few times when I was in high school. After high school I turned down numerous Canadian and U.S. scholarship offers to move to Calgary and train in the famous Hart Family dungeon. I was 17 at that time and that’s when my pro career started.” Nicholson has wrestled and promoted many prominent wrestlers over the years. “There have been a lot of great moments and matches. Here are some of my favourite ones: “The person I was most honoured to wrestle against was The Undertaker, who I was able to train with for half an hour before a Smackdown event at the Bell Centre in Montreal in 2005. “Having a mini feud with the legendary Terry Funk; wrestling Kevin Nash in front of 2500 fans at Fort William Gardens in Thunder Bay.

“I pinned Abdullah The Butcher in the middle of the ring in his Canadian retirement match in front of a turn-away crowd in Montreal. He rarely lost in his career, so that was a big deal for me; “I beat Psycho Sid in a match at the Pembroke Memorial Centre in 2008; “I wrestled Eugene at the Thomas and Mac Center in Las Vegas on WWE Heat before almost 20,000 fans in 2006; “I wrestled Hidenright at Rexall Place in Edmonton in 2005 in a match that aired on WWE Smackdown. He beat me in that match, but I got my revenge on him when I later defeated him in Puerto Rico; “I wrestled Abyss on a TNA event at the Robert Guertin Arena in Gatineau in 2007; “I wrestled Abdullah The Butcher in front of 4,000 fans at the Ottawa Civic Centre in 2007. I had always dreamed of wrestling in the Civic Centre as a kid. Although I got a coffee pot smashed over my head in that match that needed 52 stitches to fix, wrestling in that arena was a phenomenal feeling. “My feud against the current GNW Champion Jeremy Prophet has produced some of the best matches of my career. “Putting on the official Macho Man Randy Savage Memorial show was very special for me, as he was my hero growing up and the reason I got into the wrestling business in the first place.” Wrestling has taken Nicholson to many places. “I’ve wrestled all over Canada and the U.S. I’ve wrestled in Puerto Rico, Trinidad, the Dominican Republic, Ireland, Scotland and England. I wrestled full-time in Puerto Rico for four years at a time when business there was very good. They had six hours of local wrestling on TV every week and we would regularly wrestle in front of thousands of people. Wrestling there was the happiest time of my life.” Nicholson wasn’t planning on making Renfrew his final match. “The wrestling business has given me a lot of great moments and memories, but it has also caused a lot of terrible things to happen to me. I turn 29 in a few weeks and I feel it’s time to get out. I’m still young enough to find something else to use my athletic and entertainment talents for. Global TV is doing a documentary on me and they will be following me around for four days around the time of the

In Renfrew Saturday night, Hannibal (Devon Nicholson) climbs into the wrestling ring for the last time. Renfrew event. I feel I couldn’t ask for a better send-off than to have clips from my last match shown across Canada on Global. “Finally I just want to tell the people of Renfrew that if they come to this event, I promise them they will not be disappointed. This will be my last match and the last event I ever promote. “I plan on going out with a bang. I will put out my best ef-

forts and all the other wrestlers on the card will be doing the same. This is their chance to show their stuff across Canada on Global and they will give their best performance out of respect for me, since it’s my lastever event. It will be a very special night!” Other matches will include Jeremy Prophet up against Sexy Eddie; and women’s sensation Thirsty Domino of Drummond-

ville, Que., who will face Serphantina. The wrestlers, as well as the Canadian Military Commander Rick Sniper, will all be part of the eight-match card. Tickets are available at the Wing or online at ticketweb.ca. Prices are $15 for general ringside, $20 for VIP gold ringside, or you can purchase a package of four general ringside tickets for $40.

2011-12 season ready to roll The 2011-12 National Hockey League season gets underway tonight. I hope you have your Ray’s Flowers draft picks in. This onlooker’s playoff picks for the Eastern Conference are the Washington Capitals, Philadelphia Flyers, Boston Bruins, Buffalo Sabres, Pittsburgh Penguins, Tampa Bay Lightning, Montreal Canadiens and Carolina Hurricanes. For the Western Conference, it’s the Vancouver Canucks, San Jose Sharks, Detroit Red Wings, Chicago Blackhawks, Anaheim Ducks, Los Angeles Kings, Nashville Predators and Calgary Flames. Next game is the rubber match: At least, for now. In their 90-plus-year history, Original Six members Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs have met 643 times in the regular season. The Wings have won 275, the Leafs have won 275, and the other 93 meetings have ended in ties.

PETER CLARK PETER’S PUTTERINGS They say one man’s junk is another man’s treasure. The Ottawa Senators unveiled their new sweaters on the weekend. Ottawa fans say they salute their history. Toronto fans tell me the O on the front of the sweaters is a Big Zero. Good times in Motown: It’s been a pretty good month for the sports fans of Detroit. The Lions are a lofty 4-and0 for the first time since 1980; the Tigers are Central League champions and tied 2-2 in their opening-round playoff series versus the New York Yankees; the Red Wings are among the teams expected to contend for the 2012 Stanley Cup, and the NBA work stoppage has allowed the Pistons to remain undefeated. The Eagle has landed: After

a season-opening win in St. Louis, the self-proclaimed NFL Dream Team has hit the skids. The Philadelphia Eagles are suddenly 1-and-3 and panic may be about to set in. If I was an Eagles fan, my biggest concern – apart from keeping quarterback Michael Vick healthy – would be calling themselves the Dream Team. Why would you name yourself the Dream Team after the way the Miami Heat dropped like a stone in the NBA final? * * * The Atlanta Braves topped the Cleveland Indians in six games to win their only World Series title in 1995. Thanks to a monumental collapse in the final month of this year, they won’t be winning their second in 2011. And for this week: What set of brothers leads all brother combinations in total points in National Hockey League history, and what other brother combination is second?

Raiders look ahead to Turkey Bowl doubleheader versus Arnprior PETER CLARK peter.clark@metroland.com

The Renfrew Collegiate Junior Raiders levelled their Lanark-Renfrew High School Football League record at 1-and-1 with a timely 24-6 win over the Almonte Thunderbolts at Almonte’s Naismith Field Friday. A confident-looking RCI team was paced on the scoreboard by Wyatt Zohr, who racked up 100 yards rushing and two touchdowns. Nick Hazen and quarterback Neil Gibbons also scored. Josh Thero also had an effective game running the football behind a strong performance from the offensive line. Rookies Dan Norton and Alex Bechamp spurred the defence with aggressive tackling throughout against the defending league champion Thunderbolts, noted Bill Currie of the Raiders coaching staff. Speciality teams also showed improvement, led by Adam Martin’s kickoffs, the punting of Michael Wales, and good down-field coverage, Currie added. Not often do football games end in a tie, but such was the case for the Senior Raiders in their trip up Highway 17 to Deep River Thursday. Touchdowns from Devin Clouthier and Gord Gaddess catapulted the Senior Raiders to a 14-0 lead in the first half, but to their credit, the Mackenzie Mustangs battled back in the second half to forge a 14-14 tie in

the Renfrew County High School Football League contest. Raiders coach Todd Stewart estimated his team took about 15 penalties after just a couple infractions the week before. The Raiders (1-0-and-1) had an opportunity to win the game late, but were victims of a turnover. The annual Turkey Bowl doubleheader versus the Arnprior Redmen is this Sunday at Ma-Te-Way Park’s Lindsay Athletic Field. The action kicks off with the junior game at noon.

The Renfrew Timberwolves host the Stittsville Royals Friday at 8 p.m., and Perth Blue Wings Sunday at 7 p.m.

VOLLEYBALL SEASON BEGINS RCI boys volleyball teams were clipped by the Opeongo Wildcats in their 2011 season openers. Senior coaches Darren Matthews and Dale Frew said after a slow start, the Raiders got better as their match wore on. Kim Oattes and Cheryl Barber of the RCI junior squad didn’t question their team’s focus, but a lack of experience caught the Raiders in a three-set defeat to the Wildcats. GIRLS HOOPS RCI girls basketball teams swept the General Panet Panthers. RCI’s Maddie Kubiseski notched 20 points and Mikaela Barnes added seven in the Senior Raiders’ 45-32 victory. Hillary MacMillan, Meghan Forgie and Erika Jenkins had excellent games

The senior girls cruised past the Jeanne-Lajoie Chevaliers 41-7 in a Monday afternoon encounter.

Maddie Kubiseski and Gaelyn Turcotte paced the Raiders with eight points each while Meghan Forgie chipped in with six. The junior girls also enjoyed a lop-sided triumph, 45-10. Meagan Beattie and Kaleigh Nichol contributed with a bevy of fast-break points. Amanda Tubman, Rachel Fortier and Kelsey Lambert were solid on the defensive side.

Jaguars outdo Bishop Smith Crusaders yet again PETER CLARK peter.clark@metroland.com

The St. Joseph’s Jaguars are certainly getting the better of their friendly rivalry with former high school principal Mark Searson. The Jaguars swept an Upper Ottawa Valley High School Athletic Association girls basketball doubleheader from Searson’s new school, Bishop Smith Catholic High School, a couple of weeks ago. Now, the Jaguars got the 2011 boys volleyball season off to a promising start with a pair of wins in Pembroke against the Crusaders last Thursday (Sept. 29). The Junior Jaguars blanked Bishop Smith 3-0 while the Senior Jaguars prevailed 3-2. “The boys played hard and didn’t let

much hit the ground,” coach Meagan Cahill said of the Junior Jaguars efforts. Persistence prevailed for the Senior Jaguars, who pulled out a thrilling five-set victory. “They (Bishop Smith) have been getting a few calls,” in regards to the Jaguars’ 4-and-0 record over Searson’s Crusaders, quipped Senior Jaguars coach Trent Skelhorn. GIRLS BASKETBALL The Jaguars swept the Jeanne-Lajoie Chevaliers in girls basketball action at the high school gymnasium Sept. 27. The junior girls held the Pembroke visitors off the scoreboard until the third quarter en route to a 27-3 victory. Elizabeth Chirico and Sonya Bergin

both netted six points for the Jaguars. Renee Gauthier was an offensive force under the glass. The Jaguars led 8-0 before going on a 13-1 run to put the game away in the second half. The Senior Jaguars were 30-14 winners over the Chevaliers. Rebecca MacLaren had 14 points in the first half and 18 for the game to pace St. Joseph’s. The Junior Jaguars dropped a narrow 28-25 decision to the Mackenzie Mustangs Sept. 29. Sonya Bergin led St. Joseph’s with 16 points. The Senior Jaguars upped their record to 3-and-0 with a solid 46-10 triumph over their Deep River counterparts. MacLaren drained 15 more points and Melissa Verch 10 for St. Joseph’s.

Wolves strike lightning in third period to beat Thunder PETER CLARK peter.clark@metroland.com

Playoff spots don’t live and die with the first two or three weeks of the season, but for the Renfrew Timberwolves, their hardfought 6-4 win over the Almonte Thunder in the Lanark County town was a timely early-season victory. Saturday night’s win vaulted the Wolves (3-and-2) over a couple of teams to within two points of first place in the Valley Division standings of the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League. A loss would have dropped the Wolves all the way down to fifth. WOLVES 6, ALMONTE 4 After trailing 2-1 through 40 minutes of play, a wild third period – which included two Renfrew shorthanded markers – saw the Wolves overcome 3-2 and 4-3 deficits, with three goals in the last 6:17 to pull out the victory. Jesse Riopelle and Scott Conroy pulled the trigger twice for Renfrew. Brady Clouthier and Ryan Cuthill added singles. Clouthier’s tally early in the third period, and Conroy’s second of the night, into an empty net, were both shorthanded goals. Deroy Lowry and Kyle Killeen answered with two goals apiece for Almonte. Two

Thunder markers came on powerplays. Netminder Troy Gauthier turned in a solid performance for the Wolves, while facing 35 Almonte shots. The Wolves tested Thunder counterpart Troy Anderson on 32 occasions. A third-period altercation with 12:44 remaining resulted in the Wolves losing Kurtis Leclaire for the duration of the evening. TWO-GAME WEEKEND AT MAC People can make Thanksgiving a real sports weekend. The Wolves have two home games at the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre. The Stittsville Royals are in town Friday at 8 p.m., followed by the Perth Blue Wings Sunday at 7 p.m. It’s the first meeting of the Wolves and Wings since last spring’s thrilling opening-round playoff series. There are also plenty of other events on the Thanksgiving Weekend sports calendar. The annual Turkey Bowl football doubleheader between the Renfrew Collegiate Raiders and Arnprior Redmen is Sunday at Ma-Te-Way Park’s Lindsay Athletic Field starting with the junior game at noon, and Great North Wrestling takes over front and centre at the AFAC Wing Saturday at 7:30 p.m.

Hold ’em The fourth annual Hold ’em For Hospice, in memory of J.J. and Rose-Marie Enright, runs at Trinity-St. Andrew’s United Church Oct. 15. Registration opens at 2:30.

All final table players receive prizes. Each player receives $5,000 in chips to start. If you win a hand with the J.J. Enright hand (Jacks) you are entered into a draw for prizes.

Whitetail captures fifth consecutive Valley Masters golf title The Valley Masters is an annual twoday competition between Dragonfly Golf Links, The Oaks of Cobden and Whitetail Golf Club. The teams consist of two senior golfers, two juniors, two staff and 10 adult members from each club. The clubs play one another in a matchplay format. Winning a match adds two points and a tie adds one point to the team total. The Sept. 10-11 competition was extremely close as it went to a playoff between Dragonfly and Whitetail to decide the champion. Cooper Brown and Gary Graveline were chosen to represent Dragonfly while

Whitetail countered with Mario Gamache and Derek MacDonald in a playoff on the 18th hole at Whitetail on the second day. Fellow competitors and a large crowd of spectators watched the players from the top of the 18th green, cheering on their respective teams. As the two groups worked their way up the par 5, the Dragonfly duo was in a position for a birdie. Brown coolly dropped a 25-footer to put the pressure on Whitetail. Not daunted, Gamache read his putt perfectly and rolled it in for an eagle to give Whitetail not only the 2011 Valley Masters, but the club’s fifth consecutive Valley Masters title overall.

Rafuse golf event a tremendous success

Nathan Blok captured the 2011 Formula 1600 Championship with two podium finishes at the final race weekend. Returning to the famed Circuit Mont-Tremblant track, Blok raced his No. 5 Boston Pizza/Mr. Lube Van Dieman F-1600 in the Formula Libre class as part of the Autumn Classic on the historic track north of Montréal. Blok was leading Olivier Bonnet by two points going into the Sept. 24-25 weekend. On the Saturday, Blok qualified his car third out of a field of 30 competitors, directly behind some slightly quicker Formula Libre cars, a good position on the grid for this hilly racecourse. After qualifying, Bonnet was taken to the hospital for tests, as he was not feeling well. Although he was released that evening, he missed both the Saturday and the Sunday race. This took some pressure off of Blok, but he was disappointed that he was not able to race with Olivier to secure the championship. Blok crossed the finish line in first place in Saturday’s race, but race officials later ruled that he had jumped the start, and penalized Blok two positions. As a re-

sult, he officially finished third. Sunday’s race finished under caution, and after surviving an epic back-and-forth battle with Xavier Coupal, Blok took the checkered flag as the 2011 champion. “I was on Xavier’s (Coupal) gear box from the start and we pulled away from the rest of the field. I set up my pass for several laps before I made my move, and passed Xavier in turn 10 to take the lead. I ended the season in the best way possible. I was very proud to win it for my sponsors and my team. “I am really disappointed that I couldn’t race with Olivier. He is a great competitor, and I would have loved to have raced against him this weekend for the title,” Blok added. “I wish Olivier a speedy recovery, and look forward to racing wheel to wheel with him in the future.” Blok not only became the youngest driver to win at the renowned Trois Rivieres Grand Prix this year, he also had seven podium finishes – three firsts, two seconds and two thirds – in the 12-race series. He was also the only three-time winner in the Formula Tour 1600 series in 2011.

Wolves post pre-season wins From Page 17 Goalgetters were Zach Moran, Ryan Boudreau, John Agnew, Alex Paquette, Charlie Strader and Carter Bleeks for the Renfrew squad. Moran also pegged two assists for the Peewee Wolves. Cameron Iob and Connery Campbell shared the netminding win. In pre-season encounters this

Saturday at the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre, the Atom Timberwolves host the Petawawa Patriots at 1:30 p.m., while the Peewee Wolves take on Valley Storm at 2:30 p.m. All rep and house teams are asked to drop their scoresheets off in Jeff Rekowski’s mailbox at the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre by Sunday night, or phone 613-433-6116.

FOLLOWING A DREAM Renfrew singer and actor Lawrence Mahusky was offered the opportunity of a lifetime as he auditioned for Canada’s Got Talent when it made its stop in Montreal. “This whole experience was a very exciting and a positive one,” he says. Results will be known by Dec. 15 and he hopes to be fortunate enough to move on to the next level of the competition and people will vote for him. In October 2003 Mahusky released his CD Lawrence Mahusky Live! – a collection of musical theatre hits. He describes his acting and singing roles in stage performance as his second career, with his first being an education assistant at Renfrew Collegiate Institute. Currently Mahusky is teaching professional drama classes on Saturdays from Oct. 1 to Nov. 19 at the Renfrew Recreation Centre. There are still openings for the Stepping Into the Spotlight program. Students can earn their community service hours. For more information please call (613)4323131.

Former Renfrew mayor Sandi Heins accepts her award for 25 years of service in municipal politics from Minister of Consumer Services John Gerretsen.

Honour for former Renfrew mayor Former mayor of Renfrew Sandi Heins was celebrated for her 25 years in municipal politics at the Municipal Ontario East Conference Sept. 16 in Kingston. Heins, who served 12 of her 25 years of service as the mayor of Renfrew, said she is very honoured to have received such a prestigious award. “I am so fortunate to have spent that many years in politics, thanks to my family and the good people of Renfrew,� she said. “I miss it very much.� Heins said people are usually nominated by council or a senior manager, but in this case Kim (Bulmer), the clerk, nominated her. She said it was a special honour for her to be there with a gentle-

man who was being feted for 50 years in municipal politics, Bill Thake, who has served as mayor of Westport since 1969. Peter Newman presented Heins with a bouquet of red and white roses, and she received “a very nice gold pin� and a certificate signed by Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing Rick Bartolucci. The presentation was made by Minister of Consumer Services John Gerretsen, a former mayor of Kingston. Heins said the event was made extra special because her niece, Erin Briscoe, who lives in Kingston, attended, as well as friends from Renfrew and Area Health Services Village and politicians from across Renfrew County.

The turnout was four-fold compared to the previous week. Twenty residents showed up at Admaston-Bromley’s Stone Road office Monday night to discuss the ward system. Only five citizens attended a similar public meeting last week at the Barr Line Community Hall. The same Power Point presentation was distributed, outlining the pros and cons of the existing ward system, and many of the same advantages and disadvantages were expressed by members of the public. One resident explained, “As a voter, I want someone from my area representing my needs. I think that’s really key.� Councillor Dirk Rook, who was acclaimed in the November 2010 election in his ward (part of the former Bromley Township), said the majority of feedback he has received supports the ward system. He did, however, receive one call after last week’s public meeting seeking dissolution of the municipality’s current fourward structure. A question from the previous week was also reintroduced: why fix something if it isn’t broken? On the side of a general election, it was noted that the former Admaston and Bromley townships seem to have merged into one strong community, a point Mayor Raye-Anne Briscoe applauds. “There has been a significant

change in thinking,� she said, referring to the community’s coming together as one. “That’s the best news of all.� “I have not made up my mind,� Councillor Michael Donohue offered, but said he doesn’t see a great deal of difference in the needs across the township and he feels he represents everyone. He also observed that council manages a budget of about $4 million and, under the present ward system, ratepayers have a say in voting for only one of four councillors controlling the purse strings. A general election, some suggest, ensures the best people are elected to represent taxpayers’ interests. There was, however, recognition of potential problems if a more highly-populated area votes only for its own. Donna Blimkie, who ran in the last municipal election, asked that, if the ward system is preserved, council look at adjusting ward boundaries for more equal representation. “We’re living in a new age now,� said John Holyer, who also ran in the last election. “I believe it should be open voting right throughout.� The session closed with a stepby-step explanation of the process necessary to dissolve the ward system if council chooses that route. At this point council isn’t committed to any specific action but is on a fact-finding mission, seeking public input for a final decision at its Dec. 1, 2011 regular meeting in the Stone Road council chambers.

Milk, “pigeon milk”, a very rich liquid of insects and seeds regurgitated by the adult, is their staple food for several days after hatching. Doves are one of the very few birds that are able to suck up liquids without tilting their head back. SCENE FROM THE Cathy returned HAWK’S EYE the birds to their nest and the remaining bird, probably the male, is brooding and feeding the young birds. Bluebirds and yellow warblers are feeding on buckthorn berries that are plentiful on the Campbell property. The ability to digest fruit and seeds is the reason birds are able to remain in our area after others have migrated. They will stay as long as there are good food sources available to them. The bluebirds have also been taking building material into the nest boxes and the young have been investigating as well. It may be a form of imprinting that will help the young find a nest site in the spring.

We received this email from Gerald and Shirley Kenopic: Hi folks: We had a flock of eastern meadowlarks visit us at 7:45 this morning, 15plus birds on the ground and in the trees. One curious bit of behaviour we noticed was that some of the birds would jump a foot or more straight up into the air when they were feeding. After jumping into the air they would settle down and feed. Hi folks: The display you refer to is called “jump flight” and is usually a territorial conflict among males. In the fall the display is a practice effort between immature males preparing for serious territorial claims during the spring mating season. Prior to migration, eastern meadowlarks gather in flocks of between 30 and 300 birds to feed and roost. Some of these flocks move south, while others remain on the northern edge of their summer range. They forage in fields of corn stubble and weeds. At night they roost together, often in the tall grass of marshes. Occasionally, they roost with redwings and grackles.

PREPAREDNESS TIPS  Install a smoke alarm on every level of your home and outside of sleeping areas.  Test smoke alarm batteries every month and change them at least once a year.  Make sure everyone in your family knows at least two ways to escape from every room of your home.  Practice your fire escape plan at least twice a year. Designate a meeting spot outside and a safe distance from your home. Make sure all family members know the meeting spot.  Have your family practice escaping from you home, practicing low crawling and at different times of the day. Make sure everyone knows how to call 9-1-1.  Consider escape ladders for sleeping areas on the second or third floor. Make sure everyone in your home learns how to use them ahead of time by reading the manufacturer’s instructions and understanding the steps to use them. Store them near the window where they will be used.

Lockwood

 Teach your family to stop, drop to the ground, and roll if their clothes catch on fire. Practice this with your children.  Once you get out of your home, stay out under all circumstances, until a fire official gives you permission to go back inside.  Never open doors that are warm to the touch.  If smoke, heat, or flames block your exit routes, stay in the room with the door closed. If possible, place a towel under the door and call the fire department to alert them to your location in the home. Go to the window and signal for help waving a brightcoloured cloth or a flashlight. Do not break the window, but open it from the top and bottom.

NORM DAGG Sunshine Coach

There is a rainbow on the horizon. The annual Reach For the Rainbow Telethon for Sunshine Coach takes to the air on TVCo-

Wrong name given

geco Channel 22 on Sunday, Oct. 23, between 2 and 8 p.m. The event will also be broadcast live over myFM 96.1 between 4 and 6 p.m. “This is our opportunity to reach out to the community for their support in keeping the Sunshine Coach Service in operation,” says Sunshine Coach administrator Norm Dagg. “Thanks to a core of hard working volunteers and the community at large, Renfrew and area

is so fortunate to have a service in which persons with physical disabilities have access to transportation that is cost effective and meets their special needs. The need for this service is growing and cost pressures continue

to increase. Public support is absolutely critical to ensuring Sunshine Coach is there for those who need it.” The telethon involves the work of countless volunteers who, for over two decades, have contributed thousands of hours towards ensuring that the Sunshine Coach Service continues to be available to the citizens of Renfrew and area. As in past years, the telethon will be a live production origi-

nating from Renfrew Collegiate Institute, and the public is invited to drop in on Sunday, Oct. 23, watch the entertainment and make a pledge in person. Pledges may be made on the day of the telethon by calling 613-432-7299 or may be made at the Sunshine Coach offices at 44 Railway Avenue weekdays during business hours between nine and four. Secure online donations may be made by visiting www.sunshinecoach.ca.

Heritage Radio generator up and running LESLEY GALBRAITH In recent years, harsh winters, summer storms and unpredictable winds have battered the Valley and the Pontiac. When we lost power, listeners of Valley Heritage Radio were tuned out until power was restored. At times, this lasted days. So, where do concerned citizens turn to get the information they need? Well, now they can turn to their local, not-for-profit radio station, CJHR, thanks in part to the many listeners who supported the purchase and installation of the new generator, and the companies involved with the hookup. Since 2007, the aim of

Andrew Cartwright and Dai Bassett, right, with the new generator. CJHR is to gather, promote and preserve the diverse heritage of the Ottawa Valley. That means local broad-

casting with the ability to provide instruction and information during emergencies . Recently, at the studios on Burnstown Road, Yemen Electric, McCrea’s, W. O. Stinson and Sons Ltd., and Hydro One have been busy with last-minute preparations to install the new generator – it is now ready! The V6, 4.2 litre Generac generator operates on propane and was purchased through Pleau Electric. We are now up and operational, ready for any kind of stormy weather. For information, visit the station’s website at www.valleyheritageradio. ca or visit us at 3009 Burnstown Road.

Holly Jolly Radiothon set for Nov. 26 Preparations are underway for a Christmas event combining the joy of the season with a helping hand for those in need. All proceeds go to the Bonnechere Manor Foundation in Renfrew, the Child Poverty Action Network (CPAN) and to the Renfrew County United Way, whose arms open to those in need on both the Ontario and Quebec sides of the Ottawa River.

The Holly Jolly Radio-thon for the United Way, CPAN and the Bonnechere Manor Foundation, will be broadcast live on Valley Heritage Radio 98.7 FM from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 26. For more information and details on how you can get involved, please contact info@valleyheritageradio.ca or call (613)432-9873.

BETTIJANE O’NEILL Renfrew Public Library CEO/Chief Librarian

For most, January is a time of resolutions and new beginnings. However, I always feel this way in the fall: the school year starts, the fall publishing season is always the largest and October brings with it Ontario Public Library Week. This year Public Library Week is Oct. 17 to 22, as the Renfrew Public Library hosts two exciting local author readings. Brenda Missen will read from her critically acclaimed novel, Tell Anna She’s Safe, and share the story behind the story on Oct. 18 at 7 p.m. Tell Anna She’s Safe is based on the

true story of freelance writer Louise Ellis, who disappeared from her Ottawa home in 1995. After finding Ellis’s abandoned car and spending many weeks looking for her, Missen set out to find out the truth beyond the stereotypical appearances of her friend’s risky relationship with an ex-convict who had a history of violence. The result is a compelling mix of fact and fiction recounting the journeys of two women, one missing, the other searching. On Oct. 19 at 7 p.m, Eganville resident Frank Cosentino, a retired Canadian professional football player, educator and coach, will read from his new book,

Hockey Gods at the Summit, an imaginative novel based on the iconic 1972 Canada-Soviet hockey series that today remains a source of national pride and is regarded by many as a landmark event in Canadian cultural history. Come out and meet these two authors and enjoy light refreshments. Please call 613-432-8151 to register. Later in the month, on Oct. 27 at 7 p.m., we will host The Great River Project. Ottawa Riverkeeper Meredith Brown will fascinate you with her reflections on the Great River Project, a 900-kilometre canoe excursion of the Ottawa River this past summer. During the excursion, she and her team

monitored water quality and met with a diverse group of people and leaders along the way. Come out and discover why our Ottawa River and its watershed is special and worth protecting! You will also hear about the new Nature in Your Neighbourhood on-line community mapping tool and the Renfrew County Biotabase, an on-line database of Renfrew County’s flora and fauna. As seating is limited, please call the library at 613-432-8151 to reserve a seat. We are excited to announce the library has a new Integrated Library System to better serve our patrons. Please check out our catalogue of materials that is now illustrated with book cover art.

1936: Remembering the distinguished career of M.J. O’Brien OCTOBER 5, 1911

OLGA LEWIS

There was no issue available for the week of Oct. 5, 1911.

FROM THE OLD FILES

SEPTEMBER 25, 1936 REACHES MILESTONE: The Hon. M.J. O’Brien of Renfrew rounded out 85 years of life on Saturday last, 19th inst. His had one of the most active careers until falling into ill health a few years ago, since which time he has removed within doors, watching from there the course of events in the world. A railway contractor, mine owner and captain of industry, Mr. O’Brien developed a national reputation, in fact more than that, for he acquired large interests outside of Canada in addition to these owned and controlled by him in this country. Everybody in Renfrew regrets his enforced inactivity because he has been a good friend to the town, while his semi-retirement has been a loss to Canada. A Nova Scotian by birth, most of his life has been spent in Ontario, while the activities have been as wide as the Dominion. This community congratulates him on the 85th anniversary of his birth, and also wishes him happy returns. ROAD CONDITIONS AT MILLS WILL RECEIVE ATTENTION: Mayor Wade, referring at Council meeting on Tuesday evening to road conditions at the mills, said that at the last meeting of Council Mr. Imbleau had referred to the state of the road near Renfrew Woollen Mills. The next morning he (the mayor) received a letter from Mr. Southern asking that something be done to make things a little better down there. He thought it would be well to have the matter referred to the proper committee and have something done as far as necessary. Councillor Plaunt said he was surprised at Mr. Imbleau, who has been here for a number of years and is versed in municipal procedure, that he brought this recommendation, knowing the mill people very well, and knowing that they are not too bashful or of such retiring a disposition

as to send in a written application to council. To my knowledge we never had any, but I see there is one here now. We were down there last night and it is the intention to have the engineer give an estimate. SEPTEMBER 29, 1971 “SWEETEST MUSIC” TO RETURN: The Kiwanis Club will

will make a decision soon, and confirm the date. Lombardo is on tour in the area in May and April.

decide shortly whether to bring a big name band to Renfrew this spring. The name being mentioned is Guy Lombardo, no stranger to town. Gary Anderson of Castleford told the club on Monday that an expenditure of $5,000 would be needed in order to hold a dance at the Armoury and bring Lombardo in for a one night stand. As of three weeks ago, Lombardo was open for engagements in this area on May 20, Mr. Anderson said. About two years ago Lombardo packed the Armoury and Mr. Anderson told the club they would have no trouble selling tickets. The Kiwanis Club

PRESS KEEPING COUNCIL INFORMED: Reeve W.C. Moore found the shoe on the other foot, so to speak, at a meeting of Renfrew Council Monday evening. Clerk-Administrator R.G.Waters, reporting on a letter received from Mayers, Girven, Wallen and Berns, Architects, in connection with the re-zoning of certain lands in Renfrew for a shopping mall, said that a

letter had been sent to the firm, requesting more details and the application fee required, before any action was taken. Mayor Carswell and Reeve Moore both felt that the letter did not contain enough information, and that they were not meeting to discuss rumours. For the only information, they said, other than the letter concerning the matter, was what they had read in the press. Olga Lewis is available to help with research. Contact olewis@ sympatico.ca.

Youth in many communities feel they are not listened to or that they do not have a voice. The under-representation of this segment of the population concerns health units in eastern Ontario. This fall, youth in Renfrew County and District will have a chance to be heard. Photovoice is a photography project that allows youth to highlight and explore issues around health and well-being in their community. The issues can be positive or nega-

tive, and range from tobacco and substance use, to physical activity, to mental health and beyond. What’s important is that the youth themselves are identifying the real issues affecting their day to day lives. Photos and comments will be used to advocate for positive health changes. Photovoice will be led by Eastern Ontario’s six health units. Beginning Oct. 1, participants will submit photos (disposable cameras can be provided, if needed), along with a description of what the picture means to them.

The East Region Tobacco Control Area Network has provided regional prizes, including an Xbox with Kinect and gift cards. On Nov. 24, the photos will be displayed at the Pembroke Mall. This community gallery will be on display for all to view for several days after the event. To get involved, or for more information, visit the Photovoice link on the Smoke-Free East site at www.SmokeFreeEasy.ca or contact health promoter Jen Dykxhoorn at jdkxhoorn@ rcdhu.com or 613-735-8651, ext. 500.

IN MEMORIAM

HENDRICKSON Sgt FRANK EDWARD 06.29.72 - 10.07.10

Remembering you is easy We do it every day. Missing you is a heartache That never goes away. You had a smile for everyone, You had a heart of gold. You left the sweetest memories That the world could ever hold. To us you were someone special, What more is there to Miss you and always in say, our hearts, Except to wish with all Stanley (Beverly) our hearts Darlene (late Mylne) That you were here Pam (Garry) today. Kent (Carol) Gone and not Todd (Bonnie) forgotten.

BILL LEVECK Oct 6, 1982 DON March 24, 2005 Precious memories of when we were all together. Rest in peace

IN MEMORIAM

CAMERON In memory of Lorna Gayle Cameron taken from us October 8, 2005

GAUTHIER In loving memory of a dear brother, Clinton Gauthier, tragically passed away Oct11, 2010 God saw that you were wounded, From pain He set you free. He wrapped you in His loving warmth And whispered, “Follow Me”. With aching hearts we heard them say That you had passed away. Although we loved you dearly, We could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, Hardworking hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us He only takes the best.

IN MEMORIAM

Deeply missed and forever in our hearts, Love Amy & Tyler and Mom & Dad Obst

The Angels gathered near your bed so very close to you. For they knew the pain and suffering that you were going through. I thought about so many things, as I held tightly to your hand. Oh, how I wished that you were strong and happy once again. But your eyes were looking homeward to that place beyond the sky, Where Jesus held His outstretched arms, it was time to say goodbye. I struggled with my selfish thoughts, for I wanted you to stay, So we could walk and talk again, like we did just yesterday. But Jesus knew the answer, and I knew He loved you so, So I gave to you life’s greatest gift, the gift of letting go. Always in our hearts and our thoughts Love Chad, Taylor, Alleshia

Sgt. FRANK EDWARD HENDRICKSON 06.29.72 – 10.07.10

I’m watching the rain fall In my mind I hear you call. If only it could be real Even with God I tried to make a deal. Let him live and be with me, But God said “My child, don’t you see, It’s his time now to come back home And you are left on earth alone.” I cried, no, please I need him here To feel his love, I hold so dear. I cannot live my life alone, My heart will most surely turn to stone. “Have faith”, God said to me, “Give it time and you will see I never give you more than you can bear. Believe and your faith will get you there. He will always be with you wherever you are, Gone from your sight, but not very far. Remember I only loaned him to you, He had done everything I had asked him to do. You will be together again at some point in time Keep thinking of him and his spirit will shine. Dry your tears and know what I say is true, He will always be there for you.”

October 11, 2010

Don’t grieve for me, now I’m free, I’m following the path God laid you see. I took His hand when I heard His call, I turned my back and left it all. I could not stay another day, To laugh, to love, to work, to play. Tasks left undone must stay that way I found Peace at the close of day. If my parting has left a void, Then fill it with remembered joys. A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss, Oh yes, these things I too will miss. Be not burdened with times of sorrow, I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow. My life’s been full, I savored much, Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch. Perhaps my time seemed all too brief, Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your hearts and peace to thee, God wanted me now, He set me free. Love you always, miss you forever, Linda and the children

In loving memory of a wonderful Mom, Grandma and Great-Grandma, Cora Elizabeth, who passed away October 10, 2010 You heard God’s whisper calling you home, just a year ago today You didn’t want to go and leave us here alone. You loved us so much, you held on tight, Till all your strength was gone and you could no longer fight. So you gave your hand to God and slowly drifted away, Knowing that with our love, we will be together again some day. Your life was a blessing, your memory a treasure. You are loved beyond words and missed beyond measure. R.A., Lois and family
