LUCY HASS Webster’s dictionary defines fair-minded as just, upright, impartial. But the first week of September it takes on another meaning as the Renfrew Fair rolls into town, welcoming people from far and wide to gather to celebrate our agricultural community. The fair reminds of our important rural roots and is an annual homecoming for many; the chance to cross paths with old classmates and catch up with old friends and relatives. The fair opened last night with the always-popular demolition derby. The grandstand shows this year feature Bee Gee and Frankie Vallie tribute bands tonight, John Conlee Friday night and Deric Ruttan Saturday night. From the barns to the exhibit hall, the RenfrewAgricultural Society grounds will be filled with a wide range of games and attractions, food and drink. The fair wraps up at 5 p.m. Sunday.

The new George Jackson Toyota dealership in Horton Township should be open by year’s end. The 15,000-sq.-ft., two-storey building is nearly complete after more than a year’s work on construction and surrounding infrastructure. The latter includes parts of a geothermal heating system and a catchment pond for a million litres of water. The new headquarters will have a much larger service garage. The new facility will house one alignment, one underspray, two detail and four full mechanical bays. Current staff is 16, including four mechanics and a shop foreman.

Solar contract under fire

LUCY HASS lucy.hass@metroland.com

The Renfrew and Area Chamber of Commerce is challenging town council’s first step into the world of solar power. Last week chamber president Kevin Bossy sent a letter to council questioning its decision to award a Solar FIT program tender to an Ottawa firm rather than Renfrew-based OVG Solar Inc.

Renfrew Mayor Bill Ringrose says he respects the chamber’s right to present its purpose and mandate and the town hall staff say they plan to address the matter further this week. The mayor says he has also met with Shawn McHale of OVG Solar Inc. to discuss the matter. Ringrose says the controversy also opens the doors for a broader community discussion about the buy-local concept.

In his letter, Chamber president Bossy described OVG Solar Inc. as a good corporate citizen and sought rationale behind council’s decision to go with a twice-as-high bid. “When the bids were analyzed it appears little consideration was given to OVS and the overall benefit that can be had from nurturing our local businesses – as long as it represents value for the taxpayers of Renfrew,” Bossy wrote.

The Renfrew Mercury - September 8, 2011

George Jackson Toyota’s new headquarters (above) on Garden of Eden Road is scheduled to open within two months.

Opening day not far off for George Jackson Toyota Continued from front In 2010, Renfrew staff and council members took the brunt of local criticism when owners Warren and Dave La Rocque decided to move their George Jackson Toyota franchise. Too many financial obstacles stood in the way of opening a new site in town, they decided. Instead, the La Rocques went next door, to Horton Township, to buy about 200 acres from farmers Larry and Cindy Reid. The La Rocques met with some resistance, with a local resident’s appeal to the Ontario Municipal Board. But that case was resolved fairly quickly. Only about 15 acres is being used for the Toyota franchise, while the remainder is being farmed, in keeping with the practices of other properties along Garden of Eden Road. It was hoped the new George Jackson Toyota building would open early in 2011, but delays related to the OMB appeal and the aftermath of the 2008-09 recession didn’t help matters, says vice-president Warren La Rocque. Then a March 2011 tsunami in Japan then stalled Toyota’s infrastructure and franchises around the world. Life is returning to normal, though, as the La Rocques look forward to their new quarters on Garden of Eden Road, three kilometres from their present home on Stewart Street in Renfrew. “For all we’ve been through, all the ups and downs, it is a happy ending,” says the vice-president. On second thought, he adds, “Maybe it’s not a happy ending, but a good beginning. It’s been a long process. I’m looking forward to 2012 and a whole year in this building, and I think our customers are too.” MANY LOCAL CONTRACTORS Construction comes courtesy of enormous input from a wide

variety of resources, including Chris Thuemen of Morris Thuemen Architects in Pembroke. A key influence on the project was the Tusket Toyota franchise in Yarmouth, which Warren La Rocque and wife Kelly happened to see while in Nova Scotia on a business trip. They were impressed by what they saw, and eventually the Tusket building, of about 10,000 square feet, became the template for an expanded version in Horton Township. Warren and Dave took a second trip to Yarmouth, and examined more closely how they could modify the Tusket building. “We looked at building plans, similar to ours, in Ontario and Quebec,” says Warren. “We toured any facility that caught our interest, maybe a couple of dozen.” George Jackson Toyota’s new home will be a great deal different than the Stewart Street location of 4,000 square feet. “We do without a lot here,” says Warren, who says he looks forward to such new features as a staff lounge and kitchen, conference room, and five sales offices. Parking will no longer be an issue, with ample parking on the 15 acres set aside for the building and such surrounding features as the catchment basin. The basin will also serve as a fill-up station for the Horton Fire Department. Originally, the building was to be heated by natural gas, but lack of natural gas heating in Horton brought a welcomed change, says Warren. Heating with oil meant a heavier carbon footprint, so the owners decided on a more expensive, but more environmentallyfriendly, geothermal system. “This room is more expensive than any other in the building,” says Warren after stepping into the basement where much of their geothermal system is

housed. In most parts of the building, local contractors had a role to play, in this case Miller Refrigeration in Renfrew, and MacKinnon Well Drilling in Pembroke. The project supervisor is Robert Krieger of Robert Krieger General Constractor in Cobden whose earlier works include Pembroke’s Irving Big Stop, Heritage Inn and ambulance garage at the regional hospital. “I think it’s a lovely building,” says Krieger of the new Toyota home. “The building really caters to customers.” The major work remaining to

be done is landscaping, and the arrival of equipment, and furniture and other furnishings. Because of the increased size of Toyota’s local home, Warren estimates about 75 per cent of furnishings will be new. The La Rocques won’t disclose the cost of the new facility, except to say the obvious, that it’s a multi-million-dollar project. “We didn’t cut any corners on this project, because we’re the end-user of the project,” said Warren. “We spent more on things you can’t see, like the geothermal, which we know is good for the environment and we hope to get

payback on that within five to eight years.” Other work included adding extra insulation in parts of the building and moving a lot of earth to ensure the franchise is easily seen from Highway 17. The business will be accessible from the Pinnacle Road and Bruce Street entrances to Garden of Eden Road. Because the earth continues to settle around the main building, parking lots will not be paved until June 2012. Meanwhile, the building will house five showroom vehicles and another 14 vehicles in an outdoor showroom.

STEVE NEWMAN

Renfrew-based companies shared the spotlight when Renfrew County’s property and development committee made a stop in Renfrew on Tuesday. Committee members heard what OVG Inc. (formerly Ottawa Valley Glass) and Deslaurier Custom Cabinets have been doing to remain prominent players in the marketplace. Each company does about $25 million in business each year, and each relies heavily on staff from Renfrew and area. Each company was also honoured, during the same meeting, by the committee for their social and economic contributions to Renfrew County. Shawn McHale of OVG and Jim Deslaurier of Deslaurier Custom Cabinets accepted the certificates from county officials. So did Dave Lemkay, executive director of the Renfrew Industrial Commission, who was praised for making the commission an important player in the business community. Renfrew Reeve Audrey Green praised McHale and Deslaurier for making Renfrew a much healthier business community than it would be otherwise. Secondly, she said the meeting was a chance to do some healthy selfpromotion. “Basically, we do not take the time and advertise and speak strongly enough about the good things we do,” said Green. As for the industrial commission, Green added that it was “always good … but since Dave (Lemkay) came (on board a year ago) it’s been like a new light … He’s always doing something that was better than it was before.”

Three Renfrew businessmen were recognized at the Renfrew County property and development committee Monday for their economic and social contributions to the county. From left are property and development committee chairman Don Rathwell, Shawn McHale of OVG Inc., Jim Deslaurier of Deslaurier Custom Cabinets, Dave Lemkay of the Renfrew Industrial Commission, and Renfrew County Warden Bob Sweet. Deslaurier Custom Cabinets has gained prominence for staying on its feet despite an horrific fire Jan. 1, 2009. The company was sent to its knees, but recovered quickly. However, even co-owner and founder Jim Deslaurier suggested he didn’t feel quite out of the woods until just recently. “We had one of the best dinner-kind of celebrations, about two months ago, when I really, truly felt that we were back in operations,” said the Renfrew co-owner. “Now I’m looking for new customers and really getting ready to promote the business.” Thanks for the recovery went to Renfrew town council, said Deslaurier. “They came forward and they supported us through all this. And, yes, it was very tempting.

There are empty buildings in Arnprior; and gas isn’t cheap. “I could have moved that whole operation to (closer to Ottawa) where we supply about $18 million of our $25 million (in business each year). So why would you put a factory in Renfrew? continued Deslaurier. “Well, the reason is the people, the council here and the people we had to deal with were very good. The industrial commission, which manages the facility, was very supportive. We also have a workforce base. “We do have ongoing problems with the size of the building (on Hall Avenue), but we’ll work all that stuff out.” Meanwhile, Deslaurier suggested the county create a 10minute YouTube video, to be made available to chambers of commerce and businesses look-

ing to do business in the Valley. “Putting aside a few dollars for that might be a wise thing,” said Deslaurier of a video that could showcase various businesses in the area. The other showcased business was OVG. President Shawn McHale spoke about how the company will soon operate a facility with more than 70,000 square feet of production space, after recently purchasing the former Transworld Signs building on Hall Avenue. “We’re very happy to have taken over this facility, and we’re in the process of renovating and planning our office renovations, because the production space is quite usable,” said McHale, who expects the new production quaters to be up and running by November. OVG rents about 40,000 square feet at the Innova-

tion Centre, plus more space at Times Fiber in Renfrew, and one location in Ottawa. “So we’re going to consolidate all our operations, including our solar division,” said McHale. A year ago, the company created a lofty goal that is addressed in OVG’s mission statement of becoming “Ontario’s most preferred glazing contractor by 2015, through consistently delivering the highest quality workmanship and customer service.” Established in 1978, OVG remains a family-owned business that is now doing projects in Ontario, Manitoba, Alberta and Newfoundland. Major projects done or underway include the Kingston Police and Kingston General Hospital, the Ottawa and Winnipeg airports, a library centre at North Bay’s Nipissing University, BMO and RCMP buildings in Ottawa, and the Thunder Bay Consolidated Court House. Using space at Renfrew’s Innovation Centre, OVG is currently producing curtain walls that are doubling as solar panels at the University of Ottawa’s Vanier Hall. Its solar division, OVG Solar, is also tackling the marketplace, having installed 70 MicroFIT solar energy systems throughout the county while becoming the county���s largest installer. McHale commended the company staff for a lot of OVG’s success. “Whatever new thing we’re dong, they latch on to it.” During the presentation, committee member Raye-Anne Briscoe of Admaston-Bromley commended OVG for its philanthropic contributions over the years, including those to the Bonnechere Manor auditorium campaign.

False fire alarms cause true concern lucy.hass@metroland.com

False alarm. The very word suggests something to be dismissed. Unimportant. But the concern was very real last Thursday night as Renfrew County District School Board plant manager Bill Murray and Renfrew County Catholic School Board plant manager Ivan Johnston met with township council. Much of the discussion was based on a Douglas Fire department report of false alarms from 2007 to 2010. Fire Chief Terry McHale explained the challenge caused by false alarms. “One of the things that the Fire Marshal’s Office insists on is that we do total response to these situations, which could call for every piece of equipment we have in the shop, we well as every man that is available,” McHale said. He also noted the risk created any time you put unnecessary high-speed fire trucks on area roads. And, of course, the cost. As Mayor Raye-Anne Briscoe observed, “The total numbers don’t look big, but they’re big to Mercury photo by Lucy Hass us.” Fire Chief Terry McHale attended Thursday’s discusAnd it goes even further. “We know, at the end of the day, sion on false fire alarms.

yeah – dollars,” said Mayor Briscoe. “But false alarms also mean that the community doesn’t have the full department available at that particular time.” Murray and Johnston spoke on behalf of their respective school boards, outlining their maintenance routines and stating a commitment to improved communication of the false-alarm message. “We ensure the devices are cleaned regularly, we verify then annually, as required, but it doesn’t stop the devices from failing mid-stream,” Murray said. All parties agreed that communication with the right people should reign over crackdown. “I don’t think there’s any real need today for any over-reaction, insofar as a bylaw goes,” the fire chief said. Some municipalities have responded to false-alarm problems with bylaws with a scale of fines based on numbers of infractions. Faulty and sensitive equipment is one thing. Pranks are quite another and something Fire Chief McHale says should never, ever be tolerated. He says students who try pullstation pranks should be publicly chastised for the danger they pose to the school, firefighters and the general public.

Horton Township to host public meeting on asphalt plant operations STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metrolan.dcom

Last week, Horton council was informed that Miller Paving is relocating a portable asphalt plant from their Braeside quarry, and that the move to the Jamieson Pit on Whitton Road would take two weeks. Consequently, the township has arranged a meeting with property manager Tom Jones of Miller Paving and provincial ministry officials, including Brad Eckert of the Ministry of the Environment, and a Ministry of Natural Resources representative. The meeting was scheduled for this morning (Sept. 8). That meeting is to discuss the roles of provincial ministries and municipalities with the return of the asphalt plant, said McLaren. “Who controls noise? Who controls odour? Who controls location of the plant? Who controls the operation rules of the plant? We know exactly the answers to those questions, but by holding a meeting those answers become part of the public record,” said McLaren. The meeting is important, said Mayor Don Eady. “Basically, the MoE and the Ministry of Natural Resources, and Horton Township, have responsibilities, and we want the priorities set, so if

someone calls and says, ‘What about this?’ then we have the right person answer the question.” DATE OF PUBLIC MEETING It was hoped a subsequent public meeting, to address questions about the asphalt plant’s operation, would be held next week. But some council members are out of the township on council business. It’s expected the public meeting will be held the week of Sept. 19 to 23. CONCERNED CITIZEN Concerned citizen Kevin Mask, who lives on Whitton Road, was informed by Mayor Eady during the Sept. 6 meeting of Horton council that only written questions will be addressed at the public meeting. The controversy of asphalt plant operations at Jamieson Pit dominated Horton council meetings in the mid-late 1990s. The plant had been located for decades on Whitton Road, before the township passed a zoning bylaw (to permit asphalt plants and other activities) in 1994. That was appealed, but not dealt with by the Ontario Municipal Board, until the late 1990s.

HELICOPTER PAD PLANS IN GREATER MADAWASKA Renfrew County emergency services director Mike Nolan says preliminary recommendations will likely be made to the county’s health committee meeting in October regarding paramedic service in the Griffith area. Meanwhile, Nolan says Greater Madawaska is working with the county to expand medical services in the township, including a helicopter pad in Griffith. The idea is to provide a pad that has lighting 24 hours a day. “Even if there was an ambulance station in Griffith or Denbigh, it’s still an hour to a hospital, and that hour can be quite critical,” said Emon. Also, the mayor noted that a helicopter isn’t deployed until there has been on-site paramedic assessment. He says the township would foot the bill for a Griffith helicopter pad. The anticipated cost is more than $50,000.

Contractor sentenced to 71 days in jail An Ottawa-area contractor, Philip Slobodzian, has been sentenced to 71 days in jail and his company, PSC New Home Construction Inc., has been fined $90,000 for violating Ontario’s Consumer Protection Act. Between March 2009 and May 2010, Slobodzian entered into contracts to replace roofs and shingles on the properties of several Ottawa-area homeowners.

tight. But he says a $39,000 budgetary shortfall isn’t a good enough reason to pull the service. The IBI Group report correctly indicates that costs to operate the paramedic service out of Denbigh and Northbrook is rising, says Emon. But Emon also says the “report is nearly silent on whether the costs are going up in the rest of their service areas. Also, the report doesn’t compare the cost of operating the northern stations versus the other area service providers in Renfrew County and Hastings County.” Nor, said Emon, does the report address the possibility of seeking more revenue through a cost-sharing model with the two area Local Health Integration Networks. The Greater Madawaska mayor also advised those attending the Aug. 31 meeting to “keep pushing,” partly by stating their concerns to Ontario Health Minister Deb Matthews. Emon has already done so with a letter to the minister. “This is not a problem for Denbigh; this is a system-wide issue and it is a rural Ontario problem,” said Emon at the Aug. 31 meeting. “They should have seen it coming and worked at” finding a solution to the situation.

Lennox and Addington County is considering removing its ambulance base from the Village of Denbigh. Understandably, Denbighand Griffith-area residents aren’t too happy about the prospect of losing the service, so they’ve created a committee to support their concerns. Ambulance service for the area has been in place since July 1982, or almost 30 years. Discussions about whether to remove, or keep, the base are scheduled to get underway during Lennox and Addington County council’s Sept. 14 meeting in Napanee. As a result of a meeting Aug. 31 at the Griffith community hall, a GriffithMatawatchan working committee. It’s chairman is Dave Parkes, who lives between the two communities. “What we want to do is show all the counties involved that citizens from each county are concerned, and not just people out of Denbigh.” It’s hoped the group augments efforts already being made by the Denbigh Community Ambulance Network. “We don’t want to reinvent the wheel, but we want to communicate with the counties (the damage of not having this service),” said Parkes. About 50 per cent of Lennox and Addington’s paramedic costs involve calls to Northbrook and Denbigh, but only about seven per cent of the call volume, says Lennox and Addington Warden Henry Hogg. “If you’re going to provide the service, you have to do it,” said Hogg, who’s also the reeve of Addington Highland, in which Denbigh is located. If Lennox and Addington is going to continue to provide the service, the county would like to receive more than the standard provincial rate for crossborder paramedic services in such neighbouring counties as Renfrew, Hastings and Frontenac, added Hogg.

service to one ambulance out of the Cloyne area, indicated Warden Hogg. “Nothing has been decided,” said Hogg, who suspects a decision on the Denbigh service will be made by year’s end. Meanwhile, a Griffith-Matawatchan working committee was formed Aug. 31 to provide information to councils of both Renfrew County and Lennox and Addington County … if not this month then in October. A week later (Sept. 6), the six member group decided to call themselves the Griffith Matawatchan and Area Ambulance Network. About 60 concerned citizens attended the Aug. 31 meeting, including Greater Madawaska Mayor Peter Emon. A position paper created by Denbigh Community Ambulance Network says ambulance call volume has increased from 60 in the first year of service (in 1982) to 148 calls in 2010. The same position paper says fulland part-time residents of Lennox and Addington, southern Renfrew County, northern Frontenac County and eastcentral Hastings County are entitled to receive continued full-time primary care ambulance service. A consulting group, IBI Group, presented a report in 2008 that recommended closing the ambulance base in 2008, keeping one base in the Northbrook area, and moving the second ambulance to a more populated area. Nothing came of the recommendations, but they are now being revisited, said Emon. Speaking as the Greater Madawaska mayor, Emon told The Mercury, “We’re saying it’s the wrong thing to do.” At the Aug. 31 meeting in Griffith, Emon said his community “remains concerned with the possible closure of the Denbigh Station. This is a necessary service, possibly even a critical service, for an increasingly vulnerable population. “The need for this service will not decrease in the coming years, as the population in the service area continues to age.” Emon noted this is the “second time in three years that Lennox and Addington has threatened to impose a “lesser service model on you and us.” Emon recognizes that money is

Abandonment of the Canadian Pacific rail line only began this summer. But when the line is totally abandoned, District 6 of the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs would like to help advance the rail bed for recreational trail use. “We feel the corridor is a valuable asset and should stay in the public realm,” Terry Veaudry told members of the Renfrew County development and property committee Tuesday. Veaudry spoke on behalf of the Renfrew County ATV Club and as manager of the OFSC District 6, which encompasses 10 snowmobile clubs, among them Whitewater Sno-Goers, Tim-

berline, Keetna, North Renfrew (Deep River) and Missing Link. The two organizations boast a combined membership of about 1,800, with about 90 per cent of those members from Renfrew County. “With the abandonment of the CP rail corridor, our clubs wish to express an interest in seeing this corridor utilized for recreational trail use,” Veaudry told the development and property committee. “The demise of the line, alone, could be to the advantage of tourism and recreation within the county. “And a multi-use recreational trail established along the corridor could once again bring economic benefit to our community. “Due to the past history of trail abandonment in this county, we feel it is important this corridor be acquired in its whole, necessitating possibly a joint effort with neighbouring counties and districts.” Those hearing Veaudry’s presentatation included Brian Rook, president of the Renfrew Country ATV Club, and David Priebe, OFSC’s District 6 governor. The combined annual budget of the not-for-profit snowmobile clubs, said Veaudry, is $500,000, More importantly, he said the organizations could bring valuable resources to the table, since the county has already indicated it wishes to have the opportunity to acquire the abandoned rail bed. For example, he noted the Eastern Ontario Trails Alliance (of which the Renfrew County ATV Club is a member), just received $135,000 from the Province, and $25,000 of that was earmarked for Renfrew County. Veaudry referred to Renfrew County’s step in 1997 to develop an abandoned railway right-ofway policy and recommendations, including use of these railway beds for outdoor recreation. He also presented a video on the establishment of a multiuse corridor − for bikers, walkers, snowmobilers and ATVers − from an abandoned railway bed in the Tweed area. During Veaudry’s visit, committee member Raye-Anne Briscoe of Admaston-Bromley indicated there was already a good example of a multi-use trail between Renfrew and Calabogie, on an abandoned portion of the former K&P rail line. Also, Renfrew County Warden Bob Sweet indicated the county has already made overtures to CP about buying, and perhaps first leasing, the abandoned rail bed.

At the same time, Sweet indicated any development “is not going to be an overnight thing; this is going to be a long process.” Sweet says recent experience with the K&P line underlined the importance of being able to acquire all, instead of only part, of an abandoned railway line. “The only way to make it a success is to have it (available) straight through from Smiths Falls to Mattawa,” said Sweet.

Renfrew County councillors and staff lost the heart-wise 2011 Slim Till You Win contest to Lanark County earlier this year. But a few of the Renfrew County councillors have resumed their own Slim Till You Win contest. The goals remain the same – lose the most weight and trim the most inches off

their waistlines. The participants are county councillors Mary Campbell of McNab-Braeside, Harold Weckworth of North Algona Wilberforce, Peter Emon of Greater Madawaska, Walter Stack of Arnprior and Bob Sweet of Petawawa. Each has thrown $20 in the pot. The year-end winner will use the contribution to help purchase a defibrillator for his or her municipality.

Be alert, stay safe for kids on the road E

ven if you try to time it the right way, on your morning or evening commute, sometimes you just can’t help crossing paths with those lumbering beasts of the right lane – the big yellow school bus. These big yellow and black bumble-bees of the boulevard can certainly be aggravating, stopping at each-and-every railway stop – even lines that last saw trains decades ago – and making those scary wide turns. But for all of a school bus’s idiosyncrasies, we as motorists need to be mindful of them because of their precious cargo – our kids. It’s back to school time again in Renfrew County, and the smallest of the small students are still being hammered with the message of dealing with crossing signals, keeping within sight of the bus driver, et cetera. But when they see mommy, daddy, grandpa, grandma or another trusted adult waiting for them on the other side of the road, for some kids, all of those lessons get thrown out the window. Kids live in the moment, which can be endearing, but also downright dangerous, as they dart across the road for a hug. Pardon the pun, but respect is a two-way street, and we can set an example for these wee ones, and their older classmates too, who will themselves be behind the wheel sooner than we might imagine. Seeing someone peel around a parked school bus, lights flashing, sign extended, and race off into the distance certainly sends the wrong message and not only may cost someone’s life, but may give a young boy or girl a wrong message – that you can get away with cutting corners. Being a good driving example to our kids also means being more courteous on the road. We may remember the first time we saw our dad flip someone the bird for cutting him off, but repeating good road etiquette every time you get behind the wheel will last a lifetime. It’s amazing what our kids pick up, and the lessons they learn now, may well save their lives later. Whether little Johnny is crossing the road in front of you, or little Susie is watching you navigate the end-of-summer construction from her booster seat in the back, remember that you have a lot riding on your wheels.

There are many reasons why women leave GWEN RUTLAND Bernadette McCann House

Studies show that 80 to 90 per cent of women leave and go back to abusive relationships more than once. This ambivalent stage, where women are often confused about what to do, often causes huge problems, and can lead supportive family members and friends to give up on them. At this stage, the woman is trying to decide whether to leave or stay in the relationship. And that is not an easy decision. Why does a woman go back? Because she wants the relationship to work. Because she is afraid of threats her abuser has made, or because she wants to believe her abuser’s promises. She may feel guilty about the idea of breaking up the family. She may not have enough support, resources and/or confidence. She may not believe that she can make it on her own. If or when she goes back, she is hoping that she can change the relationship. Though nearly every abused women goes through this ambivalent stage,

they do so in different ways. Some may leave and go back many times. They may come to a final decision or resolution over time or suddenly. The ambivalent or uncertain stage can take many years. Why does a woman leave? She believes her life is in danger. She fears for her children. She has some hope of supporting herself. She has mustered enough self-confidence to believe that she can have a satisfying life on her own. Whether an abused woman leaves or stays, she needs on-going support. Bernadette McCann House Community Support and Outreach Program attempts to build on women’s strength and is respectful of women’s choices. Women are encouraged to be actively involved in the process of defining and evaluating the service they receive, and to take the lead in determining their goals. Support is also provided through workshops and groups for both women and their children to help in this journey. Services for children include a group called Growing Together, offering sup-

port by helping children learn new ways of coping with their feelings and behaviours that arise in families that have experienced abuse. Children are encouraged to build self-esteem that will enable them to break the isolation of abuse. The primary focus is to promote the healing process for children and their parents. Although leaving an abusive relationship is a positive step, the process can be a very difficult one and it should not be a decision you make alone. Personal safety and legal rights become more difficult to ensure when an abusive partner is involved. Arrange to spend time with family and close friends. You may also wish to get in touch with the staff of the shelter in your community to get reinforcement and support. Bernadette McCann House provides critical services and support to women facing domestic violence. For more information, please call 613-732-7776, or visit our website at www.wsssbmh.org.

Provincial Election

John O’Leary will be the Liberal candidate for the riding of Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke in next month’s provincial election. The Toronto resident, who has several Renfrew County relatives, announced he’ll open his campaign office in Pembroke, at 246 Pembroke St., this Saturday. “I think people in Renfrew-NipissingPembroke are pretty fair-minded and honest, and they’ll make up their mind on that,” said O’Leary, 31, of running in a riding away from home. “But I have deep Valley roots and I’m proud to have those roots,” said O’Leary in talking to The Mercury. In the same interview, he said this election is about issues that impact families. “I believe strongly in our program and in public education and great public health care and trying to create more Ontario jobs. Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke would definitely benefit under an ongoing Liberal government,” said O’Leary, who is a senior education adviser to Premier McGuinty. O’Leary referred in his Wednesday news release to Tuesday’s release by Premier Dalton McGuinty of the Liberals’ election program, entitled Forward. Together. That program, said O’Leary, will “move Ontario forward and make sure Ontario families have access to the best health care and education system. Our plan will help more seniors stay in their homes; reduce tuition by 30 per cent for college and university students, and support economic development for families in eastern Ontario. “Our opponents would move Ontario backwards and put the gains Ontario

families have made in health care and education at risk. I’m running so that families in Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke can be assured their voices are heard at Queen’s Park on these critically important issues.” More information on the Liberal party platform can be found at theontarioway. ca. O’Leary’s news release also included a biography that referred to his “strong combination of experience at the Ontario Legislature and deep roots in Renfrew County.” SENIOR EDUCATION ADVISER

In his role as senior education adviser to Premier McGuinty, O’Leary is the lead advisor to the Liberal government on all issues related to the province’s public education system and post-secondary education. “During his time at Queen’s Park, John fought hard for better publicly funded schools, better public health care, and stronger services for young people and help for struggling families and their kids to get back on their feet,” said the news release. O’Leary has also worked in the private sector with the Dairy Farmers of Ontario, the Chicken Farmers and other agricultural organizations. O’Leary’s Ottawa Valley roots trace back six generations to the 19th century when his ancestor Daniel Duggan became one of Mount St. Patrick’s earliest settlers. O’Leary also has several relatives in the area, including the Duggans of Renfrew. In their spare time, he and wife Leslie are big sports fans, especially of hockey and football. O’Leary’s campaign manager is Daniel Kennedy.

Premier Dalton McGuinty launches provincial party platform Premier Dalton McGuinty has launched the next chapter of the Ontario Liberal Plan to strengthen Ontario, and his party’s election platform for the upcoming Oct. 6 election. “What we’ve achieved together with Ontarians in the past eight years is nothing short of amazing,” McGuinty said, “We’ve gone from the longest surgical wait times in Canada to the shortest; our schools have been named the best in the English-speaking world, and our economy is creating jobs faster than the rest of Canada combined. But we have to keep getting stronger.” The platform, entitled, “Forward. Together.” is a plan to meet the 21st century

challenges facing Ontario families as the world emerges from the global recession. Featuring just 45 new, cost-effective commitments to help Ontario families stay on track, the Liberal platform offers a stark contrast to the 229 uncosted promises in the PC platform and the 119 so far in the NDP platform. “These are uncertain times for the global economy. These are challenging times for our families. This is our plan to help. This is our way forward, together,” the premier concluded. The full platform is available at www. theontarioway.ca. The preceding is part of a news release from the premier’s campaign.

Incumbent MPP John Yakabuski promises tax relief In kicking off his campaign for re-election, PC Candidate John Yakabuski says that Changebook, the Ontario PC policy document heading into October’s provincial election, represents the best hope for relief that Ontario families have had in the past eight years. “So many people I’ve spoken with, either here in the riding or elsewhere in the province, have indicated an overwhelming desire for significant change from the financial beating they’ve been taking under the McGuinty government,” says Yakabuski. “Changebook is all about fixing that. It’s all about what a Tim Hudak PC government intends to do to bring relief to the average taxpayer.” Yakabuski points out that, no matter what a fee, tax, or surcharge might be called, there is, ultimately, only one payer, and the burden that Ontario families and seniors have been shouldering these past few years has long ago passed the point of sustainability. He promises that will change with the election of a government that has taken the time to speak with the people about the services they receive and the amount of money that they’ve been required to shell out in order to support

dreamy Liberal policies that cost much, benefit few, and are paid for by many. “We know we can deliver key services, improve upon their delivery, and reduce the negative impact on taxpayers, who have been taken for granted far too long. Changebook is a good starting point to get this province back in shape for the people who live and pay taxes here.” Yakabuski is very pleased with the PC platform, and says that it’s been greeted warmly since its release this past May. As the PC energy critic, he’s particularly excited by his party’s commitment to remove the HST from hydro bills, and home heating cost and to put a stop to random energy experimentation that drives hydro rates up. The PC’s also plan to remove debt-retirement charges from hydro bills, relieving families, seniors and small business as they have already paid their share. Yakabuski is insistent that the cost of electricity has to be brought under control, and says, of the many things that people have spoken of, electricity, and its affordability, is never far from the top of the list. Changebook, he points out, covers

much more than hydro costs. It represents what he says is a clarion call for widespread change that was heard loud and clear through countless conversations with the people across the province who matter most – those who pay the bills. (Go to johnyakabuski.ca to view ‘Changebook’ in its entirety) “Absolutely, It’s about change,” says Yakabuski. “Change that puts more money in your pocket. Change that guarantees the services that you need. And change to clean up government.”

Yakabuski says that the people of Ontario deserve much better than what they’ve been getting. “People deserve to keep more of their hard-earned money, are entitled to expect better quality and efficiency in the services they need, and expect better management of the precious tax dollars they already contribute. A Tim Hudak PC government will make these a top priority after Oct. 6.” The preceding news release is from the office of Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MPP John Yakabuski.

Only NDP will tackle job crisis

Working people of the Ottawa Valley are being left behind, NDP candidate Brian Dougherty as he met with striking OPSEU members at Algonquin College in Pembroke. Doughtery, who will carry his party’s banner in Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke riding, is an electrical worker. “The McGuinty government has forgotten us up here,” Dougherty said. “Over nine per cent of the working people here are out of work. We have one of the highest unemployment rates in the whole country and the McGuinty government does nothing for us. Neither would Tim Hudak’s Conservatives. They would take us back to the bad old days when Mike Harris ruined our public services.” With Conservative support, he said, the McGuinty government is cutting taxes for big corporations from 14 per cent to 10 per cent. “That’s going to cost the government – taxpayers like you and me – $1.8 billion and it’s just a big fat giveaway. The big corporate executives don’t even have to promise to create jobs in return for all that cash. They can take the money and run.” Dougherty said the NDP would save the province $1.8 billion. Instead of more corporate tax cuts the New Democrats would set tax rates back at the 2010 level and that would raise the government’s revenue by $1.8 billion. “Ontario has lost 300,000 well-paying jobs in the past decade,” said Dougherty. “Economic sectors that people here depend on – forestry, farming, manufacturing – are threatened and are shedding workers. “We can’t go on like this. We need fresh thinking in Queen’s Park. Dougherty said the NDP would invest in people, supporting badly-needed infrastructure improvements and repairs that create construction jobs and help private enterprises get their products to market and at the same time the party would

reward small businesses that hire new workers. “We can do this!” Dougherty said. “If we work together and pull together in the spirit of the Jack Layton we can make this a good place to work and a great place to live.” He said the NDP would implement a Buy Ontario policy to ensure public money is spent in Ontario to create Ontario jobs. “We need to grow Ontario’s economy by rewarding companies that create jobs for Ontarians,” he said. Companies that create jobs and invest in plant, machinery, computer technology and skills training would be rewarded under the NDP’s plan, which includes lowering the small business tax rate. “It’s all about creating local jobs,” said Dougherty, “because we recognize there’s a real jobs crisis going on here.” Dougherty took some time off from a service call in the Pembroke area to visit the picket line at Algonquin College to express support for the support workers who have gone on strike there. “It’s wrong to ask janitors and secretaries to take pay cuts while giving away tax breaks to the most successful corporations,” he said on the first day of the strike. “Their struggle is everyone’s struggle. These workers are striking because more and more of them are being pushed into part-time work due to provincial cutbacks, all to pay for corporate tax breaks. There’s a lot of this going on, and it’s a big part of the jobs crisis.” The preceding news release is from the campaign of NDP candidate Brian Dougherty. In a separate Aug. 19 news release, Dougherty dedicated his campaign to the memory of the Jack Layton, the federal NDP leader who died last month. “I want to campaign in the spirit of love, courage and optimism encouraged by Jack Layton,” he said.

The mayor of Madawaska Valley wants input on how his municipality is branded. From a tourism perspective, that is. During the Aug. 31 meeting of Renfrew County council, Dave Shulist asked his fellow county councillors for feedback on how Barry’s Bay and other Renfrew County communities are perceived. “I’m a believer in branding,” he said, before noting that commonly-heard brands include Eganville, as the jewel of the Bonnechere River; Douglas, as the home of the leprechaun; Wilno, as the first home of Kashubian settlers in Canada; and Renfrew, as the birthplace of the National Hockey Association, the precursor to the National Hockey League. He’d like to share the feedback with the Barry’s Bay Heritage Society. “I think it’s valuable to get opinions from the outside because every town is unique. And if we’re going to promote Renfrew County, that’s a benefit.” Arnprior, noted Arnprior Reeve Walter Stack, is going through a branding process prior to its upcoming 150th anniversary.

Communities might also have brands that local residents have thought of, while other brands are perhaps more obvious, like Killaloe as home to the Killaloe Sunrise, the most popular of the internationally-known Beavertails. Shulist welcomes perceptions of how Barry’s Bay might be branded in tourism terms. Already, he and other locals have a few obvious brands in hand for Barry’s Bay.

Shulist said it’s up to the town to decide what its branding focus will be, but that it’s helpful for community leaders to receive as much feedback as possible. “When you’re living in a community you might see it differently (than those living outside),” says Shulist. “I think branding is very, very important, so I just want input.” To contact Mayor Shulist, email mayor@madawaskavalley.ca.

Admaston-Bromley mayor fears for future of heritage river designation Despite the efforts of the late William Commanda, Admaston-Bromley Mayor Raye-Anne Briscoe is less than optimistic about the potential for Ottawa River heritage designation. Briscoe says the matter has become so buried in the political arena she’d be surprised to see the river gain Canadian heritage designation. Mayor Briscoe’s comments came after a recent county council meeting where she commended Renfrew Mercury reporter Steve Newman for a column on Commanda, who deied recently. The column, published in the Aug. 11 edition, was entitled Supportive Elder is Gone, But Not His Love of the River. The column, said Briscoe, was a well written tribute to Commanda and the First Nation people A copy of the column was provided to

CPR rail bed Continued from Page 7 Veaudry also noted that OFSC’s District 6 has about 40 years of trails management experience to “bring to the table,” and the knowledge that snowmobiling impacts local tourism to the annual tune of about $1 million. With the development of the abandoned CP rail bed as a multi-use corridor, increased snowmobile traffic would increase that number, suggested Veaudry. Already, he noted, there

the media and members of county council and staff. In introducing the agenda’s package from Renfrew County’s finance and administration committee, which she chairs, Briscoe said Newman eloquently expressed county council’s feelings about Commanda as honorary chairman of the Ottawa River Heritage Designation Committee. Briscoe, who met Commanda on two occasions, says the aboriginal elder was a special man. “I was in total amazement of his depth of character,” she explained. “His smile, his face, his eyes; you could hear the pulse of the earth.” Mayor Briscoe’s own comment mirrored Commanda’s own remark that “Rivers are the veins for the lifeblood of Mother Earth.”

are several examples in Ontario of multi-use corridors on abandoned railway beds, including Bruce County and Parry Sound. After his presentation, Veaudry told The Mercury that having snowmobiler access to the abandoned railway bed, particularly between Smiths Falls and Pembroke, “would be a Godsend” because of the opportunity to not have to deal each year with land-use permission on some current snowmobile trails. With access to the CP

rail bed, Veaudry said the county would see a lot more riders, especially from the United States and eastern Ontario. “If you’re touring, it’s going to improve your ridership from eastern Ontario because we have much better access to snow (than farther south).” Veaudry indicated area snowmobile clubs also have a history of accessing trail maintenance funding, and that such funding could be used to help develop the abandoned CP rail bed.

ARMEN SVADJIAN Bonnechere Union Public Library

Valley book lovers will be thrilled to learn that the Bonnechere Union Public Library is preparing to roll out the red carpet for one of Canada’s most beloved authors.

Born in Leamington, Ont., and now living in Toronto, Ricci is the author of five novels and a recent biography of Pierre Elliot Trudeau. His first novel, Lives of the Saints, won a clutch of awards, Nino Ricci will be speaking at the Bonnechere Union Public Library in Eganville Sept. 16.

a member of the Order of Canada “for his contributions to Canadian literature as a renowned author.” Ricci greeted the news with characteristic self-effacing humour, writing on his website: “Rumours that the inclusion was an administrative oversight have so far proved unfounded.” This will be Ricci’s first visit to the Bonnechere Union Public Library, which is located at 74A Maple Street in Eganville. Admission is free, and a reception — with book sale and signing — will follow. This event is made possible with the generous support of Sands on Golden Lake and the Eganville branch of BMO.

Associate pro makes her mark at Renfrew Golf Club LESLEY MURRAY Renfrew Golf Club

At the beginning of the 2011 season, the Renfrew Golf Club acquired a new associate golf professional, Christine Jarrett, CPGA. Christine, Sebastien Brown, CPGA, general manager, and Charles Jarrett, CGSA, superintendent, form the new management of the Renfrew Golf Club. Since Christine is the only CPGA lady professional in the Ottawa Valley, you may be interested in finding out a little bit about her. Christine was raised in a golfing family at North Halton Golf & CC in Georgetown, Ont. Her dad had been a golf professional and her mom played golf at his club. He had moved on from the profession by the time Christine was born, but there was always a lot of golfing going on in the family. Christine resisted it until she turned 14 and made the discovery that all the nice boys spent their time at the golf club. She started playing golf, but quickly realized that these same boys would not golf with her if she wasn’t any good. Her father’s favourite saying was, “wishing will not make you a good golfer,” so she started practicing. Christine’s first real job at that golf course involved picking up range balls and working in the back shop. She worked there through high school and university, but was never able to work in the front, her dream job, because girls were not wanted there. During her teenage years Christine spent a lot of time at the golf club, because it was where all the young people wanted to hang out. This is what both Christine and Sebastien Brown are trying to foster at the Renfrew Golf Club. Make it a place where children want to be. At the tender age of 21, with a degree in history and political Science in hand, Christine decided that golf was where she wanted to make her career. She got a job as the fifth assistant (in fact, apprentice assistant) to John Porter, head professional, at the Rosedale Golf Club, in Toronto. There, they understood that there should be a woman in the pro shop, so she got the wonderful job of folding shirts and lacing up new shoes. In those days there were no college courses for the management of a golf club. The pro was expected to

teach and mentor the assistant pros, and they, in turn, were all required to pass the CPGA standard test. One day early in the season, when Christine was folding shirts, Mr. Porter came and said, “Lace up your golf shoes; we are going to play nine holes of golf.” In fear and trembling, she teed up with Mr. Porter and two other gentlemen. She scored a par on all nine holes and beat all three men. At the end of the season she successfully passed her CPGA Playing Ability Test (she had to score 150 or less for 36 holes, all played on the same day), stayed at the Rosedale club for three seasons, and learned much about the management of a golf club and teaching golf. Christine moved back to her home course at North Halton and spent the next few years doing the day-to-day management of the club as associate professional, while the pro spent his time with the other side of the business. At that time, North Halton was a very active private club with ladies, men and mixed events, and a strong junior program. In 2001, Christine moved down to North Carolina to be with Charles and became the head golf professional at the Lake Toxaway Country Club. This is a wonderful country club, with tennis courts, a pool, and a 26-acre practice facility (which Charles helped to build and then maintain), as well as an 18-hole golf course. Here, Christine honed her skills at management and learned much about teaching from Lou Biago, who was the director of golf. During this time she and Charles married and had their son, Carter, who is now six years old. With the economic downturn in the United States, both Christine and Charles looked to Canada for the next step in their careers. They spent one season at the Bay of Quinte Golf and Country Club in Belleville, but were delighted when approached by the Renfrew Golf Club, and moved here in March to be ready for this season. Christine says the Renfrew Golf Club is the best club she has worked at. The course itself is “awesome”, but she says, it’s the members who make the club special. Christine says she has worked at courses that have not been

Associate golf professional Christine Jarrett has been a welcomed addition during her first year at the Renfrew Golf Club. She is the only CPGA lady professional in the Ottawa Valley. member owned, where the primary purpose is to make a profit. They do not compare with the RGC, where the members genuinely care about the course and are invested in its success and in the enjoyment of others who come to play. She cites Kim McDonald, playing captain, and the ladies’ playing committee and their hard

work, as examples of that attitude. One thing Christine would like to emphasize is the good fortune of the women who belong to the Renfrew Golf Club. The RGC board of directors recognizes the value of having a “woman-friendly” golf course and, in Christine’s experience, many other golf clubs do not. In her opinion, the Renfrew Golf

Club has something to offer from the novice to the advanced player; from the fun nights, the recreation league, and the various tournaments. We, at the Renfrew Golf Club, are very fortunate to have such a knowledgeable, hard-working professional managing our pro shop, teaching us our lessons, and gracing us with her sunny disposition.

Wild card eliminates a wild finish I’ve never been a big fan of the wild card in Major League Baseball, and this year illustrates the perfect scenario why. Sure, over the years the wildcard race has often allowed fans’ interest to remain active as their team stays in contention longer, but too often it takes away from the division races. Look at the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox. It’d be a great race for the American League East title, except for one thing. The loser has had the wildcard title locked up for weeks. The National League wildcard race is also over as the Atlanta Braves enjoyed a healthy eightgame lead on two teams entering this week’s action.

PETER CLARK PETER’S PUTTERINGS Long-range prediction: Tuck today’s Peter’s Putterings in a drawer somewhere, and bring it out about 20 years down the road. It will be about then when third baseman Brett Lawrie becomes the second Major League Baseball player to be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame wearing a Toronto Blue Jays hat. A lasting impression: Wade Belak will be missed by his many friends and former teammates.

Through his 15 or so seasons in the NHL, he always carried a sense of humour. Belak noted his mother gave him five dollars every time he scored a goal when he was a kid. He once said of his goal-scoring prowess, since he got to the NHL, she owed him 40 bucks. * * * The four players ahead of Jim Thome (602) on the all-time Major League Baseball home run list who have not been linked to steroids are Hank Aaron 755, Babe Ruth 714, Willie Mays 660 and Ken Griffey Jr. 630. And for this week: Name the only three professional quarterbacks to have thrown more TD passes than Montreal’s Anthony Calvillo?

Denbigh-Griffith car show draws 107 vehicles PETER CLARK peter.clark@metroland.com

The fourth annual DenbighGriffith Lions Club Show & Shine Classic Car Show was its usual success with people and vendors attending from throughout the Valley. The day featured a barbecue, refreshments, entertainment, a Lions Club market, special attractions, book sale, New to You and more. Of course, the main focus was the vehicles. “We had 107 cars registered,” said Janice Powell of the Lions Club. “It was very successful, better than we did last year.” “All the money raised goes out into the community, to different organizations. Some goes to Renfrew,” Powell added. Monica Dupuis of Eganville enjoyed the fine sunny day sitting in her lawn chair next to her husband Dan’s 1975 Corvette. “This is his baby,” she said. “That’s okay. I’m proud of it, too.” The Aug. 27 Show and Shine was leading up to a day of special significance for Dupuis. “Monday (Aug. 29) is our 31st wedding anniversary,” Monica noted. The car was all shined up and ready to go. Combermere’s Kent Waddington is no stranger to car shows. He’s a member of the Bancroft Cruisers, and two Pembroke car clubs, the Valley Vets and Wheels of the Valley. “I get to every show that I can. “It’s my first time here,” he said of the Griffith event. Waddington is the owner of

a 2003 Corvette, a 50th anniversary pace car. While Waddington was impressed with the turnout at the Griffith car show, people were equally impressed with his car, and many commented favourably on its off-red colour. “It’s a special model for the 50th anniversary,” he noted. The top People’s Choice Award went to Dennis Schilkie of Pembroke with his 1965 Datsun. Neil and Delores Videto of Pembroke were second with their 1936 Dodge pickup, and Rick and Heather Leary of Almonte, third for their 1930 Pontiac Sports Coupe. The year 1930 was paramount in the Oldest Ford category. Orlan James of Combermere, Ken Brand of Golden Lake and Murray Dole of Pembroke all displayed cars from that year. Dennis and Nancy Crawford won the Oldest Chrysler category for their 1933 model. Rick and Heather Leary captured their second award of the day for their oldest GM, built in 1930. The Oldest Import went to Dennis Schilkie of Pembroke. The Lions Club, Denbigh Recreation, Mack MacKenzie Motors, Griffith Building Supply, Renfrew Chrysler, Snider’s Tent & Trailer Park and Bence Motor Sales Kaladar sponsored awards.

Champlain Shuffleboarders recall 9/11 STAN MCCORMACK Champlain Silver Seniors

Many Canadian shufflers were taking part in a tournament in Renfrew on Sept. 10 and 11, 2001. To my knowledge, it was the first such event held in Renfrew. Lois and I had taken our fifth wheel and parked it east of Renfrew, driving to the Air Force Association Building at 164 Argyle St. Roll-out courts were used and John Weston of Ottawa was the tournament director. As I remember, on the morning of Sept. 11, I was shuffling at the foot and Lois was at the head. We were only nicely into the match when someone next to me stated unequivocally that the United States had been attacked. I think he used the word bombed!

Blok makes annual spin to manor BRUCE MCINTYRE Media Relations, Renfrew County

On July 28 a group of 33 Bonnechere Manor residents, Day Program clients, staff and volunteers were thrilled to travel to Boston Pizza in Pembroke where F1600 race car driver Nathan Blok was making an appearance with his race car. The group spent several days preparing for the event by making flags and banners to show their support for this young race car driver. The Bonnechere Manor family has followed Nathan’s racing career from the beginning when he was just nine years old. Yearly, Nathan brings in his go-kart or race car to the longterm care facility and gives the residents and clients demonstrations. This year, Nathan brought his race car to the manor Aug. 24. The front parking lot was transformed into a mini race car track. Nathan was welcomed to the manor and then quickly fired up the engine and took his car for laps around the parking lot. Later, Nathan described that during races his car will reach speeds in excess of 240 km/hr. He was gracious and posed for pictures, answered questions, signed autographs and went to visit residents unable to venture outside to see the demonstration. This week it was announced that Nathan has been selected as one of three finalists for the Team Canada Drivers Scholarship. If he wins, he will receive a drive at the world famous Formula Ford Festival being held at Brands Hatch in England this October. All of us at Bonnechere Manor are extremely proud of this 17year-old’s accomplishment.

Dismissively, I responded that some prankster has undoubtedly started a story. No nation would be so reckless. However the story seemed to travel quickly around the large auditorium and within minutes most were talking and not shuffling. Remember, 10 years ago Twitter had not been thought of; if you mentioned Facebook, people thought of seeing a face when you opened a book; and the shuffler who carried a cell phone was some sort of high-tech genius with a flair for flamboyancy. And it was only minutes later that the entire shuffling contingent was in a room with a TV and we were watching live as the event unfolded. Looking back, here are the results of our shuffleboard tourna-

ment from that day. • Open Championship: 1st Diana and Ross May; 2nd Ted and Elaine Gowinski; 3rd Basil Fick and Roger Cayen; 4th Curry and Ethel Oates. • Open Consolation: 1st Cecil Hall and Allan Hamilton; 2nd Pat McGregor and Regis Sabourin; 3rd Bob Sutton and Terry Morgan; 4th Eileen Fick and Sandy Myers. • Amateur Championship: 1st Grant Sills and Laverine Smith; 2nd Stewert Blake and Chris Edgar; 3rd Doug Thomas and Helen Eady; 4th Dick Veaudrey and Hazel Fraser. • Amateur Consolation: 1st Lois and Stan McCormack; 2nd Leon and Cecile Methe; 3rd Ted Chris and Elsa Christenson; 4th Edmund Reineer and John Bleiker.

Wolves, Stittsville tie PETER CLARK peter.clark@metroland.com

The Renfrew Timberwolves opened the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League preseason by tying the Stittsville Royals 2-2 at the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre Tuesday. Blake Lamoine gave the Wolves a 1-0 lead on a powerplay midway through the opening stanza. After the Royals drew even and

pulled ahead, Scott Conroy netted a shorthanded breakaway goal for the Wolves 4:08 into the third period. Troy Gauthier and Renfrew native Zach McIntyre shared Renfrew goaltending duties. McIntyre blocked all 12 shots he faced. A melee with 1:17 remaining resulted in four players being ejected. The Wolves host Almonte Tuesday, Sept. 13 at 8 p.m.

WOLVES CAMP Renfrew Timberwolves hopefuls work a skating drill at the Junior B club’s training camp at the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre. The Wolves tied the Stittsville Royals 2-2 in their first preseason game Tuesday. They host the Almonte Thunder in another exhibition tuneup on Tuesday, Sept. 13 at 8 p.m. The defending Valley Division champion Wolves home opener is Friday, Sept. 23 versus the Arnprior Packers. Mercury photo by Peter Clark

Wolves team up with food bank the fair. “The food bank will also be at the Taste of the Valley on Sept. 24 at the Renfrew Fairgrounds,” Brookes added. “The organizers of the Taste of the Valley are encouraging everyone who attends to bring non-perishable items to donate to the food bank. This comes at a very crucial time for the food bank as Thanksgiving and Christmas are not far off and we rely solely on donations (food and money) to operate. We will also be able to handle any monetary donations at the Taste of the Valley.”

The Renfrew and District Food Bank and Junior B Timberwolves have teamed up on a promotion for the 2011-12 Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League season. If a company, business, family or individual donates $250 to the food bank, the Wolves will donate one season pass. “Last fall, we raised about $2,500, and we are hoping to double that figure this fall,” said food bank president Doug Brookes. “We will have a booth at the Renfrew Fair (Sept. 7 to 11) beside the main agricultural hall. People can make any donation, large or small, to the food bank at

Aggressive driving is irresponsible We hear the term often, aggressive driving but what exactly is it? Aggressive driving refers to driving that endangers lives and often forces other drivers to take action to avoid a collision. Examples include: unsafe passing, tailgating, speeding, unsafe lane changes, and failing to yield. All of these actions are unsafe and can lead to collisions. While on the roads we must all do our part to be more responsible drivers, and reduce the number of collisions. Obey the speed limits, pass only when necessary and safe to do so, don’t tailgate other drivers, change lanes only after signalling and ensuring it is safe to do so, and yield when required. Reducing injuries and fatalities is the goal, and responsible, safe driving is the key to achieving it.

Come and hear acclaimed Renfrew County author Carol Bennett McCuaig talk about her latest work, Encountering the Wild, on Saturday, Sept. 10 at 2 p.m. The event, sponsored by the Bromley Historical Society, will take place in the

Old Town Hall, 498 Micksburg Road, Osceola. The book is the authorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 50th publication in an amazing career that has produced both fiction and non-fiction. She is well known for her books that chronicle the early days and the set-

tlers of the many townships that make up Renfrew County, a valuable resource for anyone doing research on their family genealogy. In 1997 she received an Achievement Award from the Ontario Heritage Foundation, for her body

of work. She has also writes fiction under the pen name of Catriona McCuaig. Encountering the Wild, published by Natural Heritage Books, draws on magazine pieces featured in periodicals across North America and in Britain.

The reflections recount her rural crossings with various forms of woodland critters as she and her pets rambled about her 250-acre Poison Ivy Acres. Photos taken by her late husband, D.W., complement the stories. The

couple shared a love of nature throughout their long marriage. The afternoon talk will delight you with its sheer pleasure of rural living and will be followed by a question and answer and a book-signing.

Enjoy the many exhibits and displays at the 2011 Renfrew Fair Sept. 7 to 11

Back to school with new faces at St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s High

School has started up again for the 2011/2012 school year, and I am very excited to be back writing articles and representing St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Catholic High School for my third year! First of all, I would like to welcome our new principal, Mr. Brennan Trainor, and new vice-principal, Mr. Derek Lennox. On behalf of St. Joeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s I wish them luck in their first year in these new roles. On Sept. 1 members of student council, other students, and staff of SJHS welcomed the Grade 8 and 9 students by holding an orientation barbecue. This was a great way for the new students to get to know their way around the school, find their classes and lockers, and meet fellow students. They were also able to pay their student activity fee, get their agendas, and buy school (Jaguar) clothing. The first day of school started with a gathering in the gymnasium for a prayer service and a general welcome to students and staff. Following the assembly, students went to their first classes to begin learning. On another note, our student council will begin their weekly meetings with Julia Rowat representing the school as prime minister for her second year.

Going to the Renfrew Fair? Be sure to check out the junior fair entries in the exhibit hall beside the Armouries.

VICTORIA SLIGHT JAGUAR JOURNAL It is her responsibility to direct all other members of SJCHS student council on the right path to ensure everything goes smoothly. Christine Helferty and Eric Watters are our spirit ministers. They will be planning spirit weeks, dances, and spreading spirit throughout our school. I am the public relations minister and I will be promoting the school by writing weekly articles and helping with our school website and Facebook page. Also, Zach McIntyre is the St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s High School student trustee. It is his job to represent our school at the Renfrew County Catholic District School Board. The other ministers on student council will be appointed during the first few meetings, and they will be announced at a later date. Feel free to visit us on our website at www.sjchsrenfrew.wordpress.com to see what is happening at St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Catholic High School.

In an effort to reduce wait times for diagnostic imaging, the province is pledging extra funds to the Pembroke Regional and Queensway Carleton hospitals for two new MRI machines. The Queensway Carleton has already budgeted $3 million for what will be their second MRI and started construction on the outer building that will house it. Pembroke Regional Hospital – which serves a catchment of 100,000 people in Renfrew County – will be raising $4.5 million to cover the cost of the machine and renovations to the facility that would house it. Each hospital will receive $800,000 grants annually from the province to cover the cost of running the machines. Ottawa West-Nepean MPP Bob Chiarelli called the announcement an important step forward in patient care. “Wait times for MRIs in the Champlain LHIN (Local Health Integration Network) have decreased from 79 days in April 2008 to 44 days,” Chiarelli said. He added that it was thanks to the provincial health premium and reinvesting in health care. “The outcomes are real and measurable,” Chiarelli said. “The new MRI will expand services to residents of Nepean, Kanata and Barrhaven and result in even shorter wait times.” Dr. Wilbert Keon, chair of the board of directors for the Champlain LHIN, called MRIs the greatest diagnostic imaging tool of all time. “Not only will these new machines re-

In an effort to reduce wait times for diagnostic imaging, the province is pledging extra funds to the Pembroke Regional and Queensway Carleton hospitals for two new MRI machines. Dr. Wilbert Keon, chair of the board of directors for the Champlain LHIN, MRIs the greatest diagnostic imaging tool of all time. duce wait times for MRIs but it will also reduce the time the patient spends in the system because they will have a much more accurate diagnosis,” Keon said. Alex Munter, chief executive officer of the Champlain LHIN said the MRI at the Queensway Carleton could result in 5,600 more scans annually. “We had about 2,500 people travelling

in to have scans done,” he said, adding that the new MRI at the Pembroke Hospital will free those scans up and the new machine could have a capacity for 3,100 scans. Pierre Noel, president and CEO of the Pembroke Regional Hospital, said an MRI was the most critically missing tool in the hospital and would improve their

orthopedics care. “I am delighted, but I am here to thank the province on behalf of the 100,000 residents in Renfrew County who will now have access to this type of care closer to home,” Noel said. The addition of the last two MRIs will boost the province’s number to a total of 11, according to Chiarelli.

Enhanced-funding announcement forthcoming, says Munter STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com

No matter how Ontario’s plans and manages funding for health and long-term care, the current system is far superior to ones in the past. So said Alex Munter, the new chief executive officer for Champlain LHIN (Local Health Integration Network), at Renfrew County council Aug. 31. In fact, stay tuned for an announcement on enhanced funding related to transportation to health-care services, said Munter in response to a question from the audience. “What the LHIN system has done is consolidate the planning and the management of the funds (from the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care), and also shifted the accountability, so my accountability is not up to the chain of bureaucracy of the Ministry of Health,” said Munter, who joined Champlain LHIN in January 2011. “My accountability is local, to Champlain LHIN chief executive of- the local board of citizens of our ficer Alex Munter addresses Ren- region who set the priorities. frew County council. “I’ve worked in the old sys-

tem and I’ve worked in the new system,” added Munter. “We (myself and chairman Wilbert Keon) both believe the new system is a big step forward from what we used to have. Now that’s not to say it won’t evolve again. “And certainly as a provincial government agency, it’s responsible to implement whatever decisions are made by the provincial government of the day. “But I would hope whatever the future evolution of LHIN, that we build on the success we’ve been able to establish the last few years.” Greater Madawaska Mayor Peter Emon, told Munter that financial support for transportation “needs to be a huge consideration,” whether it’s related to healthcare for children or seniors, or transportation to medical appointments and day programs. “There has to be support for transportation, because transportation gets them into the services … it also allows them that independence that should allow them to stay in their homes longer.” “I totally agree with you,” re-

sponded Munter. “We’re working with our community support agencies, of which there are roughly 16 across the region, and they’ve also identified for their clients, who are predominantly seniors, the transportation issue. It’s an issue everywhere, but it’s particularly an issue in rural areas. “So we have heard that message and we are putting the finishing touches, literally back at the office, on some enhanced funding that will really improve the situation and link more people to more services, particularly in rural areas. “It’s not entirely nailed down, and I don’t want to scoop myself,” added Munter. “Stay tuned. You won’t have to wait too much longer for the detailed information.” Munter said Champlain LHIN has three priorities for Renfrew County health-care funding. One, deliver more health care closer to home so people don’t need travel outside the county. Two, strengthen service providers. Make sure they’re strong and successful by investing to

help them deliver continuity of care, said Munter. In that regard, the CEO said “huge progress” has been made in Renfrew County to provide alternatives to take pressure off the hospitals. Three, continue to provide specialized services, such as telecommunications and specialty clinics, to enhance health care closer to home. Champlain LHIN is among 14 LHINS in Ontario that is responsible for planning, coordinating and funding health services. Champlain LHIN’s funding sectors are hospitals, community care access centres, addictions and mental health agencies, community support services (such as Meals on Wheels), community health centres, and long-term care homes. FUNDING UPDATE Two days later (Sept. 2), Champlain LHIN announced it was investing $730,000 in new annual funding to help people travel to health services such as dialysis and seniors day programs.

We have a fledgling baby bluebird that made it to the ground early this morning, and then got pounced on by the cat. We rescued it and placed it in a covered raised area close to where it landed on the ground. It has been there all day and we are hoping the parents will come back, but there is no sign of them. There are a couple of feathers missing, and one leg appears to be injured and is not functioning properly. We can keep the bird safely in a cage overnight, but what to do tomorrow? If this were a more common bird, I’d be inclined to let nature take its course, but I’d rather try to save the bluebird if I can. What would you suggest we do? Nathalie Warmerdam Thank you for your email, Nathalie. Fledglings that fall from the nest are always a problem to care for. The parents do not recognize them as their off spring, especially if the young do not give a begging or distress call. There are exceptions, but very few. It is best to return the young as close to the nest site as possible. Fledgling bluebirds are cared for by the parents for three or four weeks but it is necessary for the young to call for food so that the parents can locate them. ON THE OTTAWA Hi Jim and Ila: Just thought I’d let you know all is well and beautiful on the Ottawa River. Yesterday on the old steamboat channel near the snow boom my daughter Cory, grandson Alex and myself were buzzed by a beautiful adult bald eagle about 50 feet over our heads. It circled and made a second pass above us. Ahh, they are a site to see. We also observed a rather disturbed osprey while stretching our legs on the Kennedy islands about a mile down riv-

JIM FERGUSON SCENE FROM THE HAWK’S EYE er from the mouth of the Bonnechere. Then we noticed it landing on a crude nest on top of a large white pine. We could also see two heads peaking over the edge of the nest. Does this seem rather late in the year for young osprey to be still in the nest? All for now, Pat Patterson Pat: Yes it is late for the young to be still in the nest. The latest date I have for them to be in the area is Oct. 22. After leaving the nest the young return to roost every night for about four weeks and do not begin to fish for themselves for at least two months. They seem to be instinctively able to fish and need no “training” by the parents. This pair may not make it.

the fox backed off grudgingly. Finally the two continued the squabble behind the barn where Isobel could not see them. She was afraid for the crow because she saw the fox emerge from around the corner of the barn but not the crow. However, a short time later the crow did emerge and appeared to be in good health. The situation may not be so good for the crow if there is another disagreement because the fox now has rounded up three other siblings. But crows, as we know, are also known for their ability to get help when they need it. Isobel thinks that the fox and the crow seemed to be playing more than fighting and neither was injured. Enjoy your birding. Ila and Jim Ferguson, 5313 River Road , R.R. 5, Renfrew, Ont. K7V 3Z8. Phone 613-432-2738 or email jamesh@nrtco.net.

WHITE DOVE Joan Sherlock called to say that a white dove arrived in her yard this past week. The only pure white dove is a ringed turtle-dove. The species is a domestic variety, not a naturally occurring species and fares poorly in the wild. Caged birds that escape are found flying free from time to time. The pure white plumage, black bill and black collar on the back of the neck are the best field marks for this species.

This year’s 75-plus participants hail from North Bay, London, Sarnia and points in between, and for the first time, women from Quebec. The weekend is designed to remove the barriers that prevent women from taking up hunting, fishing and other outdoor pursuits.

The club will be meeting at a new location, the Arnprior Curling Club at 15 Galvin St. The club meets the first Tuesday of each month at 7:30 p.m. The Sept. 6 meeting will feature Lesley Howes’ talk about bird banding. The biologist with the Canadian Bird Banding office will give tips on how to age and sex birds. A collection of skins will be a teaching tool. The Oct. 4 meeting will feature a mud puppy talk by Fred Schueller. The Nov. 1 session is sure to be popular considering the cougar sightings in the area last year, as Lauren Kruschenske will speak on local species at risk, including the Eastern Cougar.

Thank You from the family of Dan Bujold

Murray & Jean McFarlane CL26119

We want to thank everyone who supported us in the death of our uncle, Lorne Mayhew. Thank you to the staff of Renfrew Victoria Hospital and Groves Park Lodge. Special thanks to McPhail & Perkins Funeral Home and Marie Brydges for their full support.

Special thank you to Matthew Brydges of McPhail & Perkins for his quiet, gentle and compassionate guidance. A special thank you to the wonderful pallbearers, of whom Dan shared a special friendship with and loved each and every one of them. Thank you to Patti Dillabough for the beautiful programs she generously created for Dan’s church service. Thank you to the United Church and for the lovely words of Rev. Russell Wardell and Rev. Carla Van Delan. A special thank you to our cousins Andy Taylor, Cathy St. Michael and Laura Culligan for the amazing musical tribute played at the church service. Dan would have been touched by your thoughtful selection and the tenderness of your voices. Thank you to Andy Chamberlain for his reflective scripture reading and Stephanie Mole for her poem of “The Oak Tree” which inspired Dan every single day during his fearless battle. Thank you to Dan’s dear niece Grace Stewart for sharing a beautiful message to his wife and children which strengthened his message that he would always be with them. Our heartfelt thank you to Dan’s dear friend Pat McCann for his touching eulogy. Pat’s words showed courage, truth and humor. All of which were qualities Danny appreciated in his life and in his friend. As well we would like to thank the exceptional care of the nurses, doctors and staff on the 5 East Oncology Floor at the Ottawa Hospital, General Campus for treating Dan like a member of their personal family. Words cannot describe the love and genuine care they provided to our beloved Dan particularly during the last month of his life. Thank you to Dan’s Hydro Ottawa family for the respectful manner in which he and his wife and children have been treated during this arduous struggle. In spite of Dan’s failing health, he always considered himself to be a very lucky man to have the opportunity to work with such a caring and fine group of individuals. Our most sincere thank you to the communities of Richmond and Renfrew, as our family has been deeply touched by the incredible amount of support during our time of anguish. Also a thank you to all Dan’s Hockey Teams, high school and university buddies, who travelled from near and far to honor Dan! There are so many people to thank and knowing Danny’s personality, he would have been so incredibly humbled by the sincere kindness of everyone. As his family, we were deeply moved by the incredible amount of love, support and stories shared at this sorrowful time in the tremendous loss of a most amazing man, our Dan Bujold. God bless you all! A thousand times we needed you A thousand time we cried If love alone could have saved you You never would have died A heart of gold stopped beating Two twinkling eyes closed to rest God broke our hearts to prove He only takes the best. Never a day will go by that you’re not in our hearts and in our souls!

Thanks to all The Mayhew and McIntyre families

GILCHRIST, Eldon James “Gil”

Hill, Allan Edwin

Our sincere thank you for all the support, cards of condolence, flowers, charitable donations, donations of food as well as to everyone who shared their memories of Danny with us during this most difficult loss of our cherished husband, son, daddy, brother, uncle and friend.
