Town council is pleased a Renfrew citizen has offered to pay to erect a flag pole and an adjoining plaque to recognize Canadian war veterans. Council expressed unanimous support for the proposal during its June 27 council meeting. “I think this is a wonderful idea … to improve the town and honour the veterans,” said Coun. Gail Cole of the project proposed for the grass median on Veterans’ Memorial Boulevard. The citizen has requested anonymity, at least for the time being. In an email to town clerk Kim Bulmer, the citizen indicated, “Such a flag pole would enhance the stature of this roadway and entrance to the town, as well as reinforce the significance of the boulevard’s name. “I would suggest that a plaque be mounted at the base of the pole with words such as ‘Dedicated to the memory of those who fought and those who died for our freedom,’ along with a suitable date. “I would also propose that a readily visible sign be erected in proximity to the flag pole with the word ‘Veterans’ Memorial Boulevard’ and the poppy symbol.” The citizen has also offered to pay for the two initial Canadian flags, before leaving the town to pay for subsequent replacements. The citizen has also suggested the seven or eight street blades, carrying the name of Veterans’ Memorial Boulevard, be replaced with ones bearing the poppy symbol. “It might be possible for me to assist with these related costs also,” said the individual.

August 5th

Grand opening of facility, services for Helferty’s Disaster Restoration Helferty’s Disaster Restoration recently celebrated the grand opening of their new facility and offered demonstrations of two additional services to their insurance clients. “We wanted to showcase our new services of oil spill cleanup and ultrasonic cleaning, they complement our current services of water, fire and wind damage restoration. We saw a need for helping our clients with these services in our territory of Renfrew County,” said owner Devlin Helferty. “Our team now has top notch people in place to handle oil spill cleanup from start to finish, and we now have cutting edge equipment to clean not only fire damaged contents, but commercial and industrial parts, tools and

equipment for local business that has never been offered in our area.” The day-long opening (June 2) included an information seminar for local insurance people, tours of the newly renovated building, demonstrations of Helferty’s infrared camera for detecting moisture, commercial drying equipment for large projects, a mock containment area used for mould or asbestos abatement and excavation equipment for removal of oil contaminated soil. “The day was a great success, we were happy to have our insurance clients attend after all of the hard work from our team to get our facility prepared for the event,” said Jeremy Losee, senior project manager at Helferty’s. Helferty’s Disaster Res-

toration was started in 1968 by Don and Lynne, before the company was purchased by son Devlin in 1997. The Cobden company employs 10 full-time and two part-time people. Helferty’s have three truck mount extraction units, two service vehicles and three project management vehicles. They still offer services for carpet/upholstery and duct cleaning as well as water, fire, wind and oil spill cleanup. This includes emergency services and reconstruction to restore the home or business. A more detailed list of services is listed on their website at Helfertys.com. For assistance, 24 hours a day, their number is 1877-704-7854.

SHERRY HAAIMA sherry.haaima@metroland.com

Lane Cleroux of Renfrew’s Development and Works department opens recycling tenders as bidding company representatives Jeff Murray, centre, of Tomlinson Environmental Services and Dan Menard of Beaumen Waste Management Systems look on.

The tenders for recycling contracts for Arnprior and Renfrew are in and it’s time to crunch the numbers. “Now I think we have our work cut out for us to evaluate the bids, make heads or tails and make recommendations to council,” said Renfrew director of development and works Mike Asselin. Tenders were opened at a meeting July 12 in the board room at the town hall in Renfrew. Tenders were to include total annual costs for both five-year and sevenyear terms. Companies were invited to submit costs for two options, one that included 50 per cent revenue-sharing and one without. The two companies that tendered had representatives on hand for the opening. Jeff Murray attended for Tomlinson Environmental Services Ltd. and Dan Menard for Beaumen Waste Management Systems Ltd Beaumen’s first option for the Renfrew contract, with no revenue-sharing, was $198,714.57 annually for the five-year term and $210,196.27 annually for seven.

With revenue-sharing, the annual figures were $246,991.78 and 264,214.34. Tomlinson chose not to bid on the first option, so the bid with revenue-sharing on the Renfrew contract was $420,129.29 annually for five years and $420,129.29 annually for a seven-year term. Murray noted that an alternate option was attached to the company’s tender. Traditionally, said Murray, alternate options are not read out at tender openings, so the details were not made public. For the Arnprior contract, again no bid was submitted by Tomlinson for the nonrevenue-sharing option. With revenue-sharing, Tomlinson came in at an annual cost of $324,564.38 for five years and $324,564.38 per year for seven. For the Arnprior contract, for the norevenue-sharing option, Beaumen’s annual bid was $189,010.35 for five years and $200,024.92 per year for seven. With revenue sharing, Beaumen’s annual bids were $234,243.80 and $250,765.65. Beaumen holds the existing contracts in both municipalities. Recommendations are likely to come to councils for decisions July 27 in Renfrew and July 25 in Arnprior.

Rural council learns of changes to livestock damage program PETER CLARK peter.clark@metroland.com

Ontario is increasing the compensation farmers can access for damage caused by predatory wildlife. Through the new Wildlife Damage Compensation Program livestock producers will receive improved compensation when their livestock or poultry are injured or killed by predatory wildlife or when bee colonies, beehives or beehive equipment are damaged by wildlife. The list of eligible livestock has been expanded to include non-traditional livestock such as lamas and bison. Weasels, cougars and birds of prey are among predators now included. Admaston-Bromley council was brought up to date at its meeting last Thursday evening. The municipality will now receive $30 per claim to be used for administrative costs. The new program will also provide a $50,000 fund for strategic investments with industry to better understand how to prevent agriculture-wildlife conflicts, and will be reviewed every two years to ensure it is up-to-date. Admaston-Bromley Mayor Raye-Anne Briscoe said after 30 years, these changes were a longtime coming. “It’s a huge, huge problem,” the mayor said of predator attacks on cows, horses, sheep, etc. “Some farmers don’t have sheep (anymore) for that reason. It also costs you future generations,” she said. “A calf could make a considerable foundation for that herd three years

down the road.” COUNCIL NOTES Public works chair Coun. Robert Dick said St. Michael’s Catholic School participated in the Pitch-In program. The school used its own bags, and 35 students picked up 20 bags of garbage from the side of the ditch between the school and the transit station on Fourth Chute Road May 12. Because of other school activities, this was not done during the actual PitchIn week. However, council will give the school $100 for financial support, as they have done for two elementary schools in previous years. • The Association of Municipalities of Ontario (AMO) has shown its support for full Extended Producer Responsibility. EPR entails making manufacturers responsible for the entire life cycle of the products and packaging they produce. “You make it, you pay for it,” Mayor Briscoe said. It was noted, people must reduce waste and recycle more as 649 of Ontario’s 730 landfills have been filled since 1989. “There are only 81 landfills left in Ontario,” Briscoe said. “and we (Osceola) happen to be one of them.” “I’m sure ours will still be there when there’s considerably less than 81,” Coun. Mike Donohue added. A good number of the existing landfill sites are in Renfrew County. • Roads superintendent Chris Kunopaski informed council that with good weather, construction on Butler Road should be com-

pleted in early August. • Coun. Ray Pender, chair of the community service committee, said that the mixed volleyball league in Douglas has been a tremendous success. Twentyteams have signed up, which involves well over 400 players at a minimum of six per team. After expenses of sand, nets and prize money, the recreation committee

will bring in $1,000. A summer fundraising mixed baseball tournament is set for Aug 12 and 13. “There will be no liquor licence. We’ll focus on the 50-50 draw and barbecue canteen,” Pender noted. The rink opening (Admaston Recreation Complex) behind Admaston Public School was well attended, Pender added.

“Well done to the committee and all the people who baby-sitted that project,” said a very pleased Mayor Briscoe. Mayor Briscoe thanked everyone for “a very successful Canada Day. It gets bigger and better each year,” she said. “The weather was absolutely picture postcard, the entertainment was great ... and the food ...!”

DEREK DUNN

When I slowed on Castleford Road and turned toward the farm, the first thing I heard was the music. Sounds trickling to the grass parking lot, then luring me in. A lonesome standing bass, a perky banjo, along with other instruments dancing behind lyrics about “treatin’ a lady right” and seeking salvation. Topics familiar to rural folk. A huge cedar barn blocks much of Bob Johnston’s farm. But it was easy to figure out I was at the right place. Blazoned across all three storeys was the inscription: Valley Bluegrass Festival July 9-11. It didn’t take all my investigative-reporter skills to figure that one out. “It’s on a farm because that’s where a bluegrass festival should be,” Mike O’Reilly later declared backstage. Some 50 to 60 cheerful volunteers bustled about, ready to point people in the right direction. Down the small gully, over the pond where a momma duck warned me to keep to the lane, I climbed up a hill to the concert area. It was at the centre of a wall of white campers. Smoke and the smell of hamburgers frying; open-walled tents inviting retreat from the oppressive sun; booths selling everything from CDs to western apparel; people of all ages mingling about and backslapping old friends or in folding chairs clapping along to performers on the wooden stage: a bluegrass fan’s Mecca. Not that I am one. Bluegrass is a genre I’ve pretty much managed to avoid. I suppose I didn’t give it much of a chance, along with classical, opera and others. I wasn’t raised on it, so instead have stuck to folk music and others. My knowledge of bluegrass didn’t extend beyond the 2000 blockbuster O Brother, Where Art Thou, a film bluegrass fans say went a long way to shedding a positive light on their music (and movie critics say on George Clooney’s image as more than just another pretty face in Hollywood). I’ve been to my share of outdoor music festivals. (Bluesfest comes to mind, though how they can debate lawn chairs versus no lawn chairs year in and year out is beyond me. I can’t imagine it happening here even once.) Still, none compared to the warmth and genuine affection circling the concert area last Saturday in Horton. Children dancing, grandparents catching up with old friends. More musicians backstage, on stage and in the crowd than I’ve noticed at other concerts.

The much anticipated Spinney Brothers of Nova Scotia didn’t disappoint at this year’s bluegrass festival. They wowed the crowd with adept fingerpicking and seamless harmonies. Mercury photos by Derek Dunn

The Renfrew Mercury - July 14, 2011

Five couples have managed to keep the Valley Bluegrass Festival growing to the point of it welcoming some 2,500 fans every year. Some of those organizers include Shelley White, left, Arnold Dickson, Mike O’Reilly, Bob Johnston and Barb Dickson. “That’s the difference,” O’Reilly said, after playing a set in the house band The Dick Smith/Mike O’Reilly Band. “They come for the music. Not the rowdy stuff.” Organizer Bob Johnston agreed, saying many in the crowd play bluegrass and came early for the jam sessions. “They come to hear good music,” Johnston said. “Three or four generations will reunite here every year for the festival.” Jacob Topping is a prime example. He played Mountain Dew on a mandolin made by his grandfather two nights before. Johnston tells the story of how it all began some 16 years ago. After attending yet another country music festival in the early 1990s that digressed into fist fighting among drunken 20somethings, Johnston was pretty frustrated. Desperate, he agreed to meet with a stranger named O’Reilly, along with three others in a motor home. The Valley Bluegrass Festival was created. It was held on the Renfrew Fairgrounds the first two years. But then it got bumped inadver-

tently by an Orangemen event, leaving organizers to scramble for a new location. “That’s when we moved it here,” Johnston said, smiling broadly. “When Mike got here he said ‘It’s 500 per cent better and we haven’t started yet.’” It would seem a generous act, turning over a farm to musicians and their fans for a weekend. But Johnston maintains it has been a community effort, with businesses giving generously. He cites Marshall’s owner Dave Bennett as one of many who give without asking for anything in return. Hydro workers donating their talents after hours are another. “We got people in this community that just donate, donate, donate,” Johnston said. “Some of them don’t even like bluegrass.” From a motor home to the 17th annual show, welcoming some 2,500 fans to the Johnston Farm – adding more to the $65,000 already donated to Renfrew’s hospital, and $8,000 to the hospice – the Valley Bluegrass Festival is in full swing. Let’s hope the music goes on for many more years to come.

Canada Day festivities in McNab-Braeside included the unveiling of the new sign that marks the revived Braeside beach. Mayor Mary Campbell and council members joined members of council and Ontario Power Generation representatives Matt Mulvihill and Robyn Arseneau for the Friday morning event. OPG sponsored the sign. Council members stressed that while the new sign has be unveiled the beach will not be officially open for safe swimming and picnicking until at least early August. A clean-up on the once popular spot needs to be finished and railings and a gate erected to ensure that the beach on the Ottawa River can be used safely. Mercury photo by Sherry Haaima

Police seek information on suspicious fire in Renfrew

The Renfrew detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is seeking assistance in the investigation of a suspicious fire. A detached garage on Munroe Avenue in Renfrew sustained significant damage as a result. At 2:23 a.m. July 7, the garage on the property at 146 Munroe Ave. W. was discovered by a resident of the home and reported to the Renfrew Fire Department. The fire was extinguished and the detached garage sustained significant damage. No one was injured as a result of the fire. The investigation into the fire is continuing by the Renfrew OPP and the Ontario Fire Marshal. Police are asking the public to call with any information they may have. Call the OPP at 1-888-310-1122 or Crime Stoppers at 735-8477, or 1-800-222-8477. ATV ROLLOVER CLAIMS LIFE

The OPP is investigating after the death of an ATV driver on July 2. The accident occurred in the Township of Greater Madawaska. On Sunday, July 2 around 2 p.m., an 83year-old male was driving his all terrain

vehicle (ATV) on a trail off Green Lake Road. While descending a steep hill a protruding log caused him to lose control of the ATV and it rolled several times. The vehicle landed on top of the male. He was not wearing a helmet at the time. He was discovered approximately 10 minutes later by his son. Paramedics attended and transported the male to Calabogie, where he was then air-lifted by Ornge air ambulance to the Ottawa Hospital. He succumbed to his injuries in hospital that night. Const. Adam Nitschmann investigated.

The investigation revealed a 2010 Ford Escape operated by Kenneth Watson, age 81, of Ottawa was westbound on Storyland Road. and proceeded into the intersection into the path of a 1999 Chevrolet Silverado pick-up truck towing a small camper. The Silverado was travelling southbound on Chenaux Road and was driven by Bruce Peck age 49 of Clarendon, Que. The female passenger in the Escape suffered critical injuries. She was transported by paramedics to the Renfrew Victoria Hospital and then airlifted by

Ask Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Commissioner Chris Lewis what causes him great concern on Ontario roads and highways these days and he will say it is the number of distracted drivers talking or texting on cell phones. This is why this week (July 11-17), the OPP is holding week one of its four-week Phone in One Hand, Ticket in the Other Distracted Driving Campaign to ensure those who do not comply with distracted driving legislation are dealt with to the fullest extent of the law. During week one of the campaign in May, OPP officers throughout the province laid more than 1,600 Highway Traffic Act charges relating to distracted driving, with many more to come this week. “My busy job as OPP Commissioner involves that I travel our roads and highways regularly and I am astounded and dismayed at the number of drivers I see talking or texting on cell phones over the course of my travels” said Lewis. “These people have no regard for the safety of their passengers or the people

Ornge air ambulance to the Ottawa Hospital. She succumbed to her injuries and has been identified as Edna Watson, 73, of Ottawa. The male driver of the Escape suffered injuries and was transported to Ottawa Hospital by paramedics. An adult female and an infant passenger in the Silverado suffered minor injuries. The male driver of the truck was not injured. The intersection was closed while Technical Traffic Collision Investigators worked. Const. Jeff Cassidy is investigating.

PASSENGER DIES FROM INJURIES A female passenger critically injured in a collision near Haley Station on July 1 has died in hospital. The OPP continues to investigate. OPP Officers responded to the two vehicle collision at around 10:30 a.m. at the intersection of Storyland and Chenaux roads in the Township of Whitewater Region. The intersection is a through road for Chenaux Road and controlled by a stop sign for Storyland Road to the east and a stop sign for County Road 653 to the west.

OPP target distracted drivers travelling around them whose lives they can end in a split second.” During the campaign, the OPP is ramping up enforcement efforts, stopping any drivers caught using a hand-held communications or other entertainment device. They will also be watching for and stopping motorists who exhibit careless driving due to distractions such as adjusting the radio, eating while driving or searching for something in their vehicle. Using a cell phone or device capable of texting while driving can result in a fine of $155. Watching an entertainment device can result in a fine of $110. Other forms of distracted driving can result in a charge of careless driving with fines ranging from $400 to $2,000, a possible licence suspension of up to two years and/or a jail term of not more than six months. The Canadian Automobile Association (CAA) ranked the distracted driver as its number one concern on the roads in 2010.

Visitor information centres open across Ottawa Valley Tourism ambassadors enjoy familiarization tour The Visitor Information Centres in Renfrew County are now open to welcome visitors to the Ottawa Valley. In preparation for the opening of the centres, the Visitor Information Centre (VIC) staff, also known as Tourism Ambassadors, recently participated in a three-day familiarization tour to the various tourism businesses located throughout the Ottawa Valley. Organized and hosted by the Ottawa Valley Tourist Association (OVTA), the tour is designed to: increase the staff ’s overall understanding of the unique tourism products in the Ottawa Valley; provide an opportunity for them to experience first-hand the services and hospitality of some OVTA members; as well as, assist them in gaining a better understanding of the travel time and distances between geographic locations. Understanding the importance of the tour and the value of having well-informed staff, numerous OVTA tourism operators welcomed the group to their businesses and sponsored various activities and meals. Prior to the start of the tour, staff attended a half-day Customer Service Training workshop at Best Western Pembroke, sponsored by the Buy Local Initiative. The workshop delivered by Chris Hinsperger, co-owner of the Bonnechere Caves and associate with the Delfi Group, taught staff the seven steps to effective customer problem solving; how to deal with difficult customers and challenges; the recov-

ery process, and more. The end result is having well informed and knowledgeable people providing tourism information about the Ottawa Valley. “The Visitor Information Centres are vital points of access for tourism information for hundreds of thousands of tourists who visit the Ottawa Valley every year,” noted Lauren McIllfaterick, OVTA Communications Coordinator. “It is important for the staff to be well informed about the Ottawa Valley.” Discount Car and Truck Rentals donated the use of two vans and one car for the three-day tour and the Best Western in Pembroke and Renfrew are the continuing sponsors of the staff identification badges. “It is wonderful to have the generous support of the membership who sponsored the various activities and donated time to give personal tours and offer experiences on some of the unique features that the Valley has to offer.” There are 10 visitor information centres located throughout Renfrew County including Arnprior, Calabogie, Renfrew, Cobden, Pembroke, Petawawa, Eganville, Killaloe and Barry’s Bay. The OVTA is the Ottawa Valley’s official destination marketing organization, proudly representing more than 215 tourism businesses and suppliers.

EDITORIAL

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

The true value of Family Fishing Week

Thanks to the troops To the editor, As the combat mission in Afghanistan transitions into other military activities, The Royal Canadian Legion would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to those service men and women, and their families, who have served with distinction and sacrificed on behalf of Canadians during these past several years. Their contribution to the well-being and care of another country’s populace is a tremendous reflection of Canada’s efforts toward maintaining global peace and we are proud of the way you have represented us. Words are not enough to convey how grateful we are for their commitment and dedication. As a national endeavour, I am encouraging local branches to hold appreciation events for veterans of the Afghanistan mission this coming August, in order to remember those who have fallen, thank those who have returned and to celebrate how proud you and your families have made us to be Canadian. Patricia Varga Dominion President The Royal Canadian Legion, Coleville, Saskatchewan

T

here has long been a rather strange tension between two groups one might expect to share common goals, if not common means for reaching those goals. For simplicity sake we will label one group “environmentalists” and the other “conservationists.” Both want the best for nature. However, generally speaking, environmentalists prefer a hands-off approach. So long as humans don’t get involved in natural processes, or at the very least remove themselves from processes that have become horribly corrupted, nature will rehabilitate itself. Conservationists, again generally speaking, prefer taking a management role. People should make use of the bounty offered on Earth. Obviously there is much overlap. Not all environmentalists spend their time in large cities lobbying governments to prevent even good work getting done to restore wilderness areas. And not all conservationists release their catch, so to speak. There are less than ideal candidates on both sides. Still, we champion many of the activities that are conceived and administered by conservationists. One such activity, Ontario Family Fishing Week, officially ended last Sunday. Ontario Family Fishing Week is a chance for families that wouldn’t normally consider spending time in Canada’s great outdoors to pick up a rod and reel and hit the water. It is the one week of the summer that fishing licences are unnecessary. There are also a number of programs offered that teach people how to tie a line, that loan tackle, and remove other barriers. This is not to mention the hundreds of contests and derbies across the province. Last weekend, the fish and game club in Calabogie held a fishing derby on Calabogie Lake. The Ottawa Valley Muskie Club brought kids out to the Ottawa River to try to catch the elusive ‘fish of a thousand casts.’ We could wax on about how fishing is a great way for families to spend time together; about how fishing is a great way to spend solitary time on the water, maybe contemplating life or letting all the stress of life slide away. We could also talk about how the economic spinoff from non-commercial sport fishing does wonders for rural economies. But we won’t delve deeply into the reasons conservationists are right when it comes to fishing (when practised in moderation). Suffice to say the best way to save the environment is the age-old ‘use it or lose it’ principle. Only those who make use of, thus benefit from, the environment understand its true value.

FOCUS ON TOURISM

Summer music in Renfrew’s O’Brien Park COUN. GAIL COLE Renfrew Tourism Committee

The Renfrew & Area Tourism Committee is gearing up to fund and manage several projects through the summer with a view to increasing tourism activity. One new project will present four Sunday afternoon mini-concerts and a fifth special event in O’Brien Park. These will be coordinated with the McDougall Mill Museum open houses. The Renfrew Highland Pipes and Drums performed July 10. Following are upcoming shows. July 24 – The Helferty Family from Douglas Aug. 7 – Simon Clark, British Invasion Era music Aug. 21 – Willie & Jim, Ventriloquist Sept. 24-25 – Rural Ramble – Steam Engine Corn on the Cob. Other activities and upgrades will include:

• Continuing to place banners at the main entrances into Renfrew welcoming participants to various special activities occurring in town (e.g. School Reunions, Bluegrass Festival ). • The trailer dumping facility at the Tourist Information Centre will be resituated within that area, and upgraded with a running water rinsing facility. • The committee accepted applications, interviewed and hired three ambassadors to staff the Visitor Information Centre on O’Brien Road. They will undergo training and a familiarization tour to County attractions organized by the Ottawa Valley Tourist Association (OVTA). • Railway artifacts and an operating model train pike is on display in the Visitor Centre’s yellow Caboose. Donations of small artifacts related to railways are welcomed for a secure display cabinet in the Caboose. • Informative, colourful Rack Cards featuring familiar Renfrew attractions are available for hand-outs at

hotels and restaurants across the County. • An energy efficient LED floodlight system to highlight the McDougall Mill Museum at night with changing colours has been installed with the cooperation of Renfrew Hydro. • Five modern park benches are being installed on the lawns of O’Brien and Haramis Parks. • The Highway 41 billboard near Cloyne will be updated to showcase Renfrew’s NHA/NHL Birthplace status. • An illuminated water fountain will be installed to enhance the Hydro Canal by the bridge across the Bonnechere River. • It will be beneficial for town organizations to keep the Tourism Committee informed of summer and fall activities that can be promoted through our ambassadors and online.

dent, noted that he is pleased to have a strategic plan as a guidepost over the coming year. He particularly wants to improve the engagement of new members in the club, so they become energetic, serving members for years to come. “Membership is the lifeblood of any service club and Rotary is no different,” Blenkhorn said. “There are many reasons why someone is motivated to join a service club. “That motivation quickly dies if new members do not feel fully engaged. The Renfrew Rotary Club is active and vibrant and continually seeking new members”.

St. Joseph’s Catholic High School in Renfrew will have a new principal – Brennan Trainor – at the helm in September. Mercury

photo by Lucy Hass

Trainor selected principal at SJCHS Brennan Trainor has been named principal at St. Joseph’s Catholic High School in Renfrew. The Renfrew County Catholic District School Board announced the reassignment, which begins in September 2011. Trainor replaces Mark Searson, who has been re-deployed as principal at Bishop Smith Catholic High School in Pembroke. Trainor, vice-principal at St. Joseph’s from February 2008 to the present, was also vice-principal at Bishop Smith Catholic High School from 2001 to 2008, and has served terms as acting principal at both Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic School and St. Joseph’s Catholic High School in the past. “Brennan Trainor exemplifies leadership,” said Renfrew County Catho-

lic District School Board chair Bob Schreader. “Throughout his career, he has brought our board’s vision statement to life, sustaining ‘safe school environments characterized by warmth, hospitality, good humour and joy.’” Trainor’s career in Catholic education began with the RCCDSB in 1998 after receiving his Bachelor of Arts from Carleton University in 1994, and completing the Post Baccalaureate Teacher Education Program at D’Youville College, Buffalo, N.Y., in 1995. Trainor also holds a Master of Education degree from the University of Ottawa. “Brennan offers a wide range of experience, enthusiasm and passion for Catholic education, which he will con-

vey to staff and students,” notes local trustee Anne Smith. “I am pleased to have this opportunity and absolutely look forward to ensuring the continued growth and achievement of our students in a faithbased environment at St. Joseph’s Catholic High School,” Trainor said. Trainor is a religious education specialist, a member and Eucharistic Minister at St. Michael’s Parish in Douglas and a member of the advisory board of the Renfrew Victoria Hospital’s Addiction Treatment Services. Over the years, he has been involved in mentoring programs, research projects and numerous committees at RCCDSB, Eastern Ontario Catholic Curriculum Co-operative and Ministry of Education levels. Trainor lives in Douglas with his

About 300 Renfrew County students are taking part once again in summer school literacy and numeracy courses and credit programs under the principalship of Shelley Montgomery and Brennan Trainor. Courses are offered to elementary students from Kindergarten to Grade 8 to enhance their reading and math skills. Secondary students can take advantage of the Credit Recovery Program to obtain missed credits in courses such as English, math and science, or to complete credits in a Co-operative Education/Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program. “We are very pleased to offer our secondary students the ability to attend summer school to address any credit deficiencies they may have,” said Trainor. “Using a blended learning model we hope to assist our

students in achieving success, through a process they would otherwise not have had available.” The Summer School program runs from 8:30 to 11:45 a.m. daily until July 28. It is funded by the Ministry of Education as part of its literacy initiative to support student achievement. ST. JOE’S ONE OF THE SITES The provision of customized transportation to the seven summer school locations throughout the county is key to making the program successful for all students. Sites this year include John XXIII Catholic School in Arnprior, St. Joseph’s Catholic High School in Renfrew, Bishop Smith Catholic High School and Holy Name Catholic School in Pembroke, Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic School in

Petawawa, St. John Bosco Catholic School in Barry’s Baym and St. James Catholic School in Eganville. Ninety Grade 4 students from across the county are also participating in the board’s new, weeklong Crusaders’ Camp July 5–8 at Bishop Smith Catholic to learn about Catholic high school programs and services. Students are divided into six groups with colour-coded T-shirts and tutors to lead them through sessions such as woodworking, computer technology, indoor athletics and HILA science program. A fun pizza lunch/wrap-up party will end the program on a high note. “This innovative pilot program will allow students to get a taste of a good variety of the programs that we offer at our Catholic high schools,” commented Montgomery. The school board is also

conducting a summer research project through the Ministry’s Council of Ontario Directors of Education (CODE) funding to investigate and support education research. Evidence on reading levels will be collected initially from all students at two RCCDSB school sites. Later, summer school student results will be identified and compared to regular student reading levels to demonstrate the benefits of the summer school program in reducing gaps in student achievement. Additional benefits of conducting this research project include funding for tutors and support staff as well as a recreational component. “Our goal is to provide programs and support to increase student achievement with our Summer School program,” said Montgomery.

The Renfrew County Catholic District School Board (RCCDSB) will invest $58.7 million in its faith-based education system in the 2011-2012 school year, according to the budget passed unanimously by board trustees on June 27. “I’m pleased to present our school board’s annual budget,” says Bob Schreader, chair of the board. “My fellow trustees and I believe this budget provides the necessary resources and planning to ensure the best possible programs for our students. We are confident that this is a sound investment in the future of our children and our community.” It is again necessary this year to transfer funds from reserves, in the amount of $845,037 to balance this budget. This transfer from reserves will be used to cover board-funded programs and projects. Schreader points out that the 20112012 budget reflects several provincewide initiatives that focus on increasing student success and responding to individual needs of students throughout the board. “These initiatives reflect the board’s commitment to provide the highest quality of education to its students, as well as the province’s mandate to increase student success rates, close achievement gaps and increase public confidence,” he says. “Our programs have been very successful in the past, and we aim to strengthen our focus on ensuring each and every student has the opportunity to achieve and to grow within our faith-based system,” Schreader adds. The single largest program expenditure in the 2011-2012 budget is $8.1 million allocated to Special Education programs. $6.9 million of this will be funded by the Ministry and other miscellaneous revenue. The board will cover the $1.2 million shortfall with funds from other areas. Although the RCCDSB has had a drop in student enrolment in recent years, it has continued to support all of its programs. “Special education programming is a visual symbol of our commitment to an inclusive Catholic education that nurtures the giftedness, self-worth and potential of each student in our board,” says Schreader. Other key initiatives in the RCCDSB budget for 2011-2012 are:

Continued from Page 11 The university Enrichment Mini Course Program (EMCP) is open to students in grades 8 to 11 from all schools across the board. Courses are offered in a variety of disciplines, such as information technology, psychology, engineering, journalism, mathematics, music, drama, and law. Approximately 50 students participate annually in this unforgettable, hands-on learning experience in a university setting; • Our newly formed Parent Involvement Committee (PIC) is committed to supporting the board in its mandate to provide excellent academic results and safe and welcoming school environments for learning. The Ministry parent engagement funding of $16,718 will further support the work of PIC and the individual school councils across the system; • $250,000 to support the investment in technology infrastructure projects that will ensure schools and classrooms are technologyrich learning environments with a highly effective technical infrastructure. The continued funding support will include an upgrade to all school file servers, an upgrade to the wide area network (Internet bandwidth) and the completion of a two-year investment in wireless infrastructure in all RCCDSB schools. This robust infrastructure will support the “bring-fromhome technology” objective in Catholic schools. In addition to the technology infrastructure projects, several other projects will provide enriched learning environments in all classrooms through the deployment of an aggressive hardware upgrade plan in schools, laptops for students within the classroom environment,

Assisi Catholic School in Petawawa this fall. This state-of-the-art facility will welcome elementary students in a faith-filled environment characterized by warmth, hospitality, good humour and joy. Other capital projects planned for the fall include: • Modifications to the board office to comply with provincial accessibility standards. This work involves renovations to the front entrance and construction of a meeting room on the first level to make the premises accessible to all visitors and employees; • St. Joseph Catholic High School has several capital projects underway, including installation of new lights in the gymnasium and front foyer; creation of a new room with an automatic lift and sink for special needs students who use a wheelchair; • Bishop Smith capital projects include an exterior facelift at the entrance and a paving retrofit program, as well as modifications to the foyer and administrative area to increase functionality and efficient use of space; • $508,024 for Early Learning Kindergarten classroom retrofits at Our Lady of Lourdes, Pembroke, and St. Thomas the Apostle in Renfrew to prepare for 2012/2013 ELKP implementation; • $1.5 million in School Renewal and School Condition Funding to provide major capital upgrades to learning spaces across the system. “A new Employee Family Assistance Program introduced this spring will put the emphasis on wellness and health for staff and their families,” says Schreader. “We have several very important initiatives in this budget for 2011-2012,” says Schreader. “It is exciting to see these projects in the budget, but there are also significant challenges that we face in the upcoming

year.” “A particular challenge,” Schreader says, “is the provincial trend of decreasing enrolment, which hits small, rural school boards especially hard. With the majority of grants based on enrolment, a drop in enrolment numbers results in a drop in provincial funding.” Funding for Special Education programs is affected by the decline in enrolment and contributes to the shortfall in this envelope. Funding for board transportation has also been adjusted proportionately to the decline in enrolment, and faces an additional 1% reduction due to a routing efficiencies rating. The board has introduced some administrative initiatives to meet these challenges, including: • Reorganization of board staff to meet staffing needs without hiring. Duties have been re-assigned through retirement of staff and reappointment of new staff. Portfolios have been realigned to meet the needs of students; • Implementation of a Human Resource Information System (HRIS) to achieve efficiencies and streamline reporting processes; • Trustees have committed to going paperless in September and will conduct committee and board meetings utilizing technology. “We will use technology in order to reduce paper and resources. By initiating these programs, the trustees will animate that part of our vision statement that commits to claiming our role as global stewards and cherishing our environment,” comments Schreader. “The board continues to be committed to running an efficient and effective operation by putting students and their academic achievement and wellness first,” concludes Schreader.

video conferencing opportunities and enriched blended learning environments. Use of technology within Catholic schools will foster communication and collaboration, multimedia publishing and video conferencing. Other classroom initiatives include: • $100,000 to build on the board’s leading-edge ELearning Initiative to engage new technology in the classroom and provide online homework support for students from Grades 7 to 12; • $87,805 to continue the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program, which strengthens the ties between high school and the work world; • $83,300 for library support; • $80,000 to continue the popular Tutors in the Classroom program, which employs 48 university and college students to provide extra coaching and support to students; • $53,600 dedicated to Community Use of Schools which will build on the school board’s commitment to maintain strong ties between school, home, parish and the community by encouraging full community use of school facilities; • More than $760,000 allocated to school budgets for textbooks, learning materials, classroom supplies, computers and Smart Boards. In 2011-2012, the board plans the continuation of pastoral animators at all secondary schools. The board also supports the Young Parent Support Program at Columbus House, the two Alternative High School classrooms and the Adult Basic Literacy Skills program to help those who require a different educational experience to achieve success.

Theriault and Blue a winning combination PETER CLARK peter.clark@metroland.com

Lisa Theriault has come a long way since she first climbed up onto a horse. The Renfrew competitor on July 3, captured the grand champion in the Green Hunter Division bronze circuit held at the Ashland Farm in Ashton. Theriault, aboard Blue, was in a field of 10 competitors in Ashton. “Currently, I’m in fifth place out of 20 (competitors) in all,” Theriault said of the bronze series as she and Blue prepared for the next event in Ottawa. As it turned out, she and Blue won the reserve champion in the nation’s capital. “Blue is seven years old, but I got him in 2008,” Theriault added of her show partner. “I bought him from the owner here.” Here, is Bonnie Loch Acres on Lochwinnoch Road, where Theriault credits Lynn Burgess with her success. “She got me going where I am today,” Theriault said. She also gives accolades to coaches Kitty Bowland and Laura May. Theriault now also coaches at Bonnie Loch Acres. Theriault is the proud owner of a second horse, Star, which she still has. “I got her for my 16th birthday. I’ve won numerous awards with

I am the Summer Youth Coordinator for the Town of Renfrew Parks and Recreation Department. To start this program, I visited 13 different classrooms throughout the schools of Renfrew, specifically Grades 5-8, where I discussed that my role of summer youth co-ordinator for the Renfrew Parks and Recreation Department was to plan events, programs and trips for the youth of Renfrew, and I did not want to do so without some input on what they would like to see happening in Renfrew. Therefore, all programs and activities that are run this summer are chosen by the youth of Renfrew, and designed for the youth of Renfrew. The theme of all programs/ events this summer is What’s In It For YOUth? The following are what is coming up for the month of July. • Every Thursday at 6 p.m. we have a walking group that starts and ends at the Renfrew Recreation Centre, and we do various loops of Renfrew as a

group. This is a great program for those who want to get, or stay in shape, but don’t enjoy walking alone. • Friday, July 15 we are hosting our first movie night where we are playing Justin Bieber’s movie Never Say Never. The $2 admission includes a drink and snacks, and great seats to a great flick. • Wednesday, July 20 we have volleyball night from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Participants can show up and we will break into teams and have a mini volleyball tournament. • Friday, July 22 we are hosting our third Girls Night. We are venturing out to Ma-TeWay for beach volleyball and splash pad time. Then we will head back to the recreation centre for homemade ice cream sandwiches and a craft. It’s ages 11-14 and admission if $5. Participants must pre-register. • Wednesday, July 27 is our Leader in Training Program. This is a free program that offers training to youth ages 12-16 who are interested in becoming day camp leaders in the future. Participants will spend the morning receiving training, similar to what the day camp leaders do, and then in the

afternoon go out to the Renfrew Day Camp Program where they will become leaders for the afternoon. Each participant will receive a certificate of completion. This looks great on a resume. This will also be offered again on Wednesday, Aug. 10. • We are hosting our first skatepark meeting on Thursday, July 28 at 6 p.m. All youth are welcome to join this exciting night. We will discuss areas of the town that are options for a skatepark, what we want the skatepark to look like, and how can we go about fundraising to bring a skatepark to Renfrew. This is an exciting opportunity for the youth of Renfrew to use their voice and help create change in Renfrew. • At any time, youth can visit the recreation centre and check out our What’s In It For YOUth? Board, which outlines all programs and activities. They may also add us as a friend on Facebook, where we can add them to the youth group and they will receive exclusive invites to all of our programs/ events. I can also be reached Wednesday to Friday at the recreation centre at 613-432-3131 if there are any questions.

It was the school of hard knocks in her early days with Star, as both were untrained. “I got bucked off a few times. I didn’t know anything myself, so we kind of learned together,” Theriault observed.

As Derek Jeter rapped out five hits in one game Saturday, including a home run for No. 3,000, it amazed me that, with all the great New York Yankee names over the years, none previously had been able to accomplish this feat wearing Pinstripes. Only 28 players have reached the 3,000-hit plateau, and for Jeter, after five World Series titles, this will put a stamp on a Hall-of-Fame career. Then I started doing the math. A player must average 200 hits a year for 15 seasons to garner 3,000 hits, so staying away from any kind of major injury is a must. Then I thought, holy $x$%, Jeter’s still well over 1,000 base knocks behind Pete Rose. The all-time hit king has 4,256. That’s 20 years of 200 hits, and then some. Not Yankee fans: Remem-

Christian Lopez received four luxury suite tickets to each Yankees game for the rest of the 2011 season, playoffs and World Series included, if the Yankees get there, plus other items. Now there’s talk that the IRS might come calling to the tune of $14,000 in taxes. Will they show up at Lopez’s front door wearing Boston Red Sox hats? Black to White: During a Dodgers-Padres game Sunday afternoon, Los Angeles Dodgers television announcer Vin

Scully commented when cameras spotted San Diego manager Bud Black in the dugout. “He started the week as Bud Black,” Scully said. “After yesterday’s loss (a no-hitter until two out in the ninth) he was Bud Grey, and the way the Padres have been hitting, if they lose today, he’ll be Bud White.” * * * Jason Frasor is chasing Duane Ward to become the Toronto Blue Jays all-time games leader by a pitcher. Ward made 452 appearances. Frasor is at 450 appearances with the Blue Jays as of the allstar break. And for this week: Of the 28 players to reach the 3,000-hit barrier, name the only one to achieve the feat as a pinch-hitter.

They started play at 4:45 a.m. and completed at 8:45 p.m. after 315 holes, which well eclipsed the 256 holes they put in back in 2009. However, had it not been for the rain before darkness fell Friday evening, they would have turned in a few more holes. Graveline and Brown combined to raise more than $4,000 for Hospice Renfrew.

The Dragonfly Golf Links’ Cooper Brown held the upper hand virtually from start to finish at the Ottawa Valley Golf Association Junior City & District Golf Tournament July 4 and 5. The 36-hole event played at the Carleton Golf & Yacht Club and Mont SteMarie Golf Club, saw the 16-year-old Renfrew junior top the field of 14 to 16 year-old competitors by a solid six strokes. Brown was the only golfer in the field of 51 to shoot in the 60s on the first day, yet his round of 69 at Carleton allowed him to lead by just a single shot ahead of Josh Goheen of the Hylands Golf Club. However, Brown’s 71 the following day at Mont Ste-Marie gave him a threeunder-par 140 total, six shots better than his nearest competition, former Renfrew Golf Club junior and defending tournament champion Stephane Pare of Eagle Creek. “I’m still kind of in shock that I won it,” Brown said back home at the Dragonfly. “I didn’t think I would win (going into the tournament). I was shocked to win by six.”

Dandy day for a derby SHERRY HAAIMA sherry.haaima@metroland.com

It was sunny and hot on Sunday — perfect weather for a day of fishing, swimming and barbecuing at the beach and the Douglas Lions Club had just the ticket. The annual kids fish derby on the Bonnechere River July 10 drew a good number of young anglers, with participation on par with last year’s event, said

Paul Kilby of the Douglas Lions Club. Trophies and cash prizes went to the top three biggest fish but no one went home emptyhanded as every participant on hand received a prize. First prize went to Cole Bimm for his 1.5-pound catch, Mason Rowan took second with an 8 ounce entry and Johanna Dwyer third with a 7-oz. fish. Kilby thanked the many generous sponsors who helped make the day possible.

There wasn’t much difference in size between the junior and adult winners of the Calabogie Fish and Game Club’s annual fishing derby. Fish size, that is. The junior winner’s catch was a 2.8pound largemouth bass. The adult winner pulled in a 3.6-pound largemouth. Organizer Brian Moran, who owns Moran’s Cabins not far from the derby site of Calabogie Lake, said the turnout was about the same as last year, maybe a few less. There was no blaming the weather, he admitted. “It was a great day,” Moran said. “There’s good bass fishing here.” Hometown favourite young Zach Moran won $100 for his fish. He promised to take the whole family out to dinner that night. “That’ll pretty near take all his money,” Moran said, chuckling. Jake Powell came in second place, earning him a fishing rod. RENFREW WINNER The winner of the adult division, Pete Robb, took home $200. No word on whether Moran siblings Luke, Zachery and Rebecka secure a spot in front of Barnet Cothe was treating the family. Second place tage on Calabogie Lake for the annual fishing derby July 9. Turns out it was the went to Renfrew’s Kevin Coulas, who right spot, Zach hauled up a bass that won him the $100 first prize.

A news release from the Ontario government reports that Liberal Ontario has invested in new infrastructure that has created thousands of jobs, improved local communities and made life better for all Ontarians. “That is just some of the good news found in Ontario’s 2011 Progress Report. The annual report shows the results Ontarians are achieving together,” the news release says. “New roads, bridges, community centres, hospitals and schools are just some of the projects built by Ontarians since 2003. “They are helping parents get home to their family faster and providing better health care closer to home. “Families also now have more recreation options so they can spend more time together and students are able to focus on learning in clean, modern schools,” the release adds. The government’s infrastructure investments have helped create and support close to 600,000 jobs since 2003. Other results include: • 18 new hospitals built or underway; • 400 new schools built across the province; •Investments in key transit projects

such as the Toronto-York Spadina Subway Extension, Eglinton-Scarborough Crosstown LRT, Air Rail Link and Ottawa light rail transit; • Built or rebuilt 5,500 km of roads and 739 bridges across the province; and • 400 recreation centres in communities across Ontario built or underway. “Moving forward, Ontario’s new longterm infrastructure plan — Building Together — will continue to create jobs, strengthen the economy and help meet the needs of local families by investing more than $35 billion over the next three years.,” the news release states. “Infrastructure is the foundation of our economy and quality of life. Investing in our roads, water systems and public buildings creates jobs, strengthens our province and makes living in Ontario better,” says Bob Chiarelli, Minister of Infrastructure. The news release also noted that since 2003, Ontario has built or rebuilt 5,500 km of road. “That’s like building a road from here to Alaska,” the release states. It was further noted that projects to expand broadband Internet access have improved opportunities in rural and remote areas.

New mobile app to help Canadians take control The Heart and Stroke Foundation’s 2011 Report on Canadians’ Health warns that nine out of 10 Canadians are jeopardizing the quality and length of their lives. The Foundation found that many Canadians are in denial about their risk factors for heart disease such as being overweight and being physically inactive ; risk factors they can manage and control. Each year, about 250,000 potential years of life are lost in Canada due to cardiovascular diseases, including heart attacks and other chronic heart-related conditions. “Canadians know what to do to live healthier, longer lives. But there’s a huge disconnect between what we think we are

doing to address our risk factors and reality,” says Dr. Beth Abramson, cardiologist and spokesperson for the Heart and Stroke Foundation. “We know that up to 80 per cent of premature heart disease is preventable – yet we’re not managing some of the most common and deadly cardiovascular risk factors as well as we think we are.” Only about a third of Canadians polled by the Foundation said they are not physically active or don’t eat a minimum of five servings of vegetables and fruit per day. The reality is about half of Canadians don’t meet the physical activity and healthy eating recommendations. “It’s not just years of life that are at

Bell of Hope rings to mark new chemotherapy satellite PEMBROKE – Representatives from the Pembroke Regional Hospital and The Ottawa Hospital Regional Cancer Centre had reason to celebrate as they officially opened the new Systemic Therapy (Chemotherapy) Satellite Service. The new service which began in late February has treated 45 patients to date and is expected to provide treatment to about 400 local cancer patients a year. As part of a special ceremony held Monday afternoon a “Bell of Hope” was presented to the clinical team at the satellite clinic for patients to ring in celebration as they finish their last treatment. “We know that anything that we, as a hospital, can do to make things easier for patients and their loved ones is a step in the right direction” said Pembroke Regional Hospital CEO Pierre Noel. “We recognize that our patients need this service – a service that enhances access and minimizes travel for those who, due to their illness, are not as able to travel as frequently and as far for their treatment. And while we know that this is an important advancement in local cancer care, we also know that it could be any one of us, our family members, our neighbours, or our friends requiring such a service next.” Noel acknowledged the support of partners at The Ottawa Hospital, the Regional Cancer Centre, the PRH board of direc-

tors, the hospital’s medical staff and leaders who worked hard to bring this much-needed service to the region. Dr. Jack Kitts, CEO of The Ottawa Hospital, remarked that this partnership has helped improve access for Ottawa Valley cancer patients to world class care in their own backyard. Kitts, a native of the area who was born at the hospital in Pembroke and grew up in the Ottawa Valley, attributed the success of the project to three ingredients – good collaboration and partnerships, government support, and strong leadership in both organizations. He also noted that the two hospitals have a longstanding history of collaborating on important healthcare issues to ensure patients receive worldclass care. Paula Doering, vicepresident of the Regional Cancer Program echoed the same sentiments noting that cancer patients in our region will receive the same standard of care as in Ottawa, cared for by a local healthcare team trained in the care of patients receiving chemotherapy, including nurses, physicians, pharmacists and pharmacy technicians. “As a systemic therapy satellite, Pembroke Regional Hospital is part of a Regional Systemic Therapy Program led by The Ottawa Hospital Cancer Program. In working together, the mutual goal is to pro-

vide safe, evidence-based care while maximizing use of resources and ensuring that care is centred around patients’ needs including providing care as close to home as possible,” Doering said. And before symbolically cutting the ribbon for the new service, Pembroke Regional Hospital board chair Barb Schoof said determination to do the “right thing” and bring to fruition a long-term goal of the hospital was what needed to be celebrated. “While the devastation that cancer inflicts on so many people can’t always be prevented, we believe that doing the ‘right thing’, that is, bringing Systemic Therapy to our hospital for our patients, was well worth the effort.” Under the leadership of Dr. Joel Ward, five physicians including Dr. Joan Tyler, Dr. Heather Castillo, Dr. Lomie Coleman, and Dr. Sylvie Cantin, provide support on a rotational basis to this clinic. Patients are referred to the clinic by an oncologist in Ottawa, thereby improving accessibility of care and decreasing travel time for patients in our community. In addition, Telemedicine is used to access oncologists and other professionals from the Regional Cancer Centre. The clinic runs Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. in dedicated space on the ground floor of the Pembroke Regional Hospital.

stake,” explains Abramson. “It’s healthy quality years that can be gained. For example, by being physically active, you gain close to four years of life— three of those free of heart disease and stroke.” The new My Heart&Stroke Health App™ is designed to give Canadians an overview of their health and health risks, as well as tailored action plans for healthier living. It is available for free at mobile app stores on Apple iPhone, Blackberry and Android. The app is classified under “Health & Fitness” or you can download it at heartandstroke.ca/mobileapps. If you don’t have a mobile phone, you can take the risk assessment online at heartandstroke.ca/risk. The foundation’s prescription for a healthy lifestyle and more quality years of life is to manage the risk factors that can be controlled: follow a healthy diet, be physically active, know and control your blood pressure and cholesterol levels, maintain a healthy weight, be smoke-free, reduce stress, manage diabetes and limit alcohol consumption. Abramson also recommends that Canadians ask their healthcare providers to help them reach their goals. The Heart and Stroke Foundation, a volunteer-based health charity, leads in eliminating heart disease and stroke

and reducing their impact through the advancement of research and its application, the promotion of healthy living and advocacy.

Tourism has a significant part to play in the local economy; one that can create jobs and brining in new financial resources to the area. As a large amount of visitors to the region are those visiting their friends and family, local residents become de facto tourism experts and need to be informed about all the things we have to offer. ” The contest for the iPad 2 may be over, but submissions of favourite experiences and attractions are still encouraged at the Tourism Starts with You website. Past entries can also be viewed, which include everything from Movies Under the Stars in Smiths Falls to the Marmora Mine in Marmora and the Forest Festival in Haliburton.

Regular user fee policy will remain in effect for Jr. B Timberwolves; military exercise planned for October PETER CLARK

peter.clark@metroland.com

The Renfrew Junior B Timberwolves approached the Renfrew Recreation Committee, requesting that user fees be waved. A look was taken at the ice usage between junior B and other organizations, Renfrew Coun. Tom Anderson said. There was a concern that should a recommendation be made to council

to relieve junior B hockey of user fees, what happens with other organizations that use the facility and their user fees. What decision is made for junior B would be consistent across the board. The Wolves have been given a preferential ice rate which ranges between the minor and adult rates, which the junior B team confirmed they were satisfied with, Anderson added. A couple of years ago,

Date: July 23 2011

an agreement was made to wave the first eight players, but this was a one-time deal, and the current user fee policy will remain in effect. Council received correspondence from Lt. David Foohey of the 42nd Field Regiment RCA seeking permission to perform dry gun deployments, training and movements in and around Renfrew Oct. 14 to 16. Areas include are the fairgrounds, the field behind the Renfrew

station and Caboose Tourist Booth, Ma-Te-Way Park just west of the arena and parking lot, and the area of the old shopping mall at the west end of town off Highway 60. “(We) welcome their involvement in this area. We should make sure the public is aware,” Coun. Gail Cole said. The councillor said some Renfrew residents were unaware of the Field Regiment’s presence in the past.

The Ontario’s Highlands Tourism Organization (OHTO) has announced the winner of the iPad 2 in their Tourism Starts with You contest, part of their grassroots effort to increase tourism to this region. Recognizing that most people who live in the area may not consider it as a tourist destination, the OHTO set out to to change this attitude and to inform the local population that Tourism Starts with You. People were encouraged to share the attractions and experiences that they love about Ontario’s Highlands at www.tourismstartswithyou.com, and every submission counted as an entry into the contest. The winning entry was selected at random from over 570 submissions received throughout the contest period, which ran from the end of March to June, 2011. Lynda Larsen-Baldry from Kanata won the contest by submitting one of her favourite experiences in the Ontario’s Highlands region: whitewater rafting on the Ottawa River. Larsen-Baldry chose whitewater rafting because “it is fun and you can get all your friends and family together for a day or a weekend and see what they are made of. You can let it all hang out and after it is over you can relax and have fun talking about how it went.” Whitewater rafting has a strong association with the region, as the Ottawa River was recently named the number two rafting destination worldwide by travel website www. cheapflights.com. The region is also home to the Ottawa Valley, the Whitewater Capital of Canada. “This is a great winning submission to highlight some of the amazing world-class experiences and attractions that Ontario’s Highlands has to offer,” explains Leah Piltz,

Elder abuse awareness needs to continue

A GENEROUS SPIRIT SHARES THE GIFT OF LIFE Agnes Leblanc relaxes as she gives blood for the 27th time July 7. She was among the 127 donors at last week’s event. The blood donor clinic was hosted by the Renfrew Lions Club at the AFAC Wing. Mercury photo by Peter Clark

The Renfrew detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police would like to remind everyone that preventing abuse is everyone’s business. June was Elder Abuse Awareness Month, and educating people on the most common abuses in our community can help reduce victimization. When it comes to our aging population, the three most common types of abuse are financial, physical and verbal. Financial abuse is by far the most common as seniors are targeted by fraudsters, as well as by caregivers, and even family members. Physical and verbal abuse may be displayed with unexplained injuries, social isolation, changes in personality, and lack of nutrition or hygiene. If you know anyone exhibiting these signs, or suspect a case of elder abuse, please help protect them by seeking assistance for them. Everyone in the community has a role to play in preventing crimes. Seniors should feel empowered to speak to those in the community equipped to assist them, including the police, physicians, bank officials, members of the clergy and family members

or caregivers. The OPP encourage everyone to be vigilant in protecting our senior population, who may be more vulnerable to abuse due to their trusting nature and being viewed as weaker. To report a case of suspected abuse, call the OPP at 1-888-310-1122 or call Crime Stoppers. For more information on seniors’ abuse visit the OPP website at www.opp.ca Crime Stoppers Pembroke/Renfrew County believes that someone may have information that could assist police in solving these crimes. If you have information on any criminal offence that results in charges being laid, you qualify for an award of up to $2,000.Call Pembroke/Renfrew County Crime Stoppers at 735-8477 or 1-800-2228477. You could help solve a crime. All tips remain anonymous and you will not have to attend court. Crime Stoppers does not subscribe to call display. Our telephones are answered 24 hours a day.

31 July 14, 2011 - The Renfrew Mercury

Opeongo Opera, world-class concerts featured in Stone Fence Theatre Stone Fence Theatre, the heritage theatre company dedicated to putting the Ottawa Valley onstage, launches its ninth season July 19 with a new musical extravaganza called The Opeongo Opera. The new show, which is described by as “a tamarackin’ tour of the Ottawa Valley,” will be performed 15 times at supper theatre performances in Eganville, Killaloe and other Valley locations this summer and fall. Additionally, the company is holding four concerts in Eganville this summer with some top traditional music artists. The Opeongo Opera “is an Ottawa Valley music lover’s dream,” according to producerdirector-creator and performer Ish Theilheimer. “It’s a collection of stories, comedy, and songs that speak volumes about our area, performed by some terrific people who are very proud of their Valley roots.” Some of the songs in show are traditional, but not that commonly heard anymore, much less performed in the rollicking Stone Fence Theatre style. The Chapeau Boys is one of the most famous examples, telling the tale of the travels, fun and adventures of a gang of 19th-Century loggers. From the tyrannical Archibald McNab who terrorized his township residents and treated them like serfs in the 1820s and ’30s to the famous Wilno Hound and a trip to famous Redneck Riviera to the hunt camp up the Brent Road and the Opeongo Line itself, the show travels a winding, circuitous and delightful tour through time. Theilheimer says this year’s ensemble is one of the company’s strongest yet. New stars in the cast include singer Fran Hobbs, better known for her powerful blues and jazz singing. Singer-songwriter Terry McLeish brings his wry and rooted songs and strong stage presence after nearly 40 years of gigging around the Valley. Emma and Will March, ages 13 and 11, “are guaranteed to dazzle audiences with their fiddling, stepping and charm,” says Theilheimer. “Emma and Will are awesome and talented performers who obviously work very hard at it, but they’re also great to work with and are fully a part of this show.” Returning veterans John Haslam, Ken Ramsden, Ambrose Mullin, and Maureen McCoy bring strong singing and comedic talents, while pianist Peter Brown, known for his jazz trio and his work with Mumbo Jumbo Voodoo Combo, holds things together musically along with Ramsden, Theilheimer and the

The March Kids, Will, 11, and Emma, 13, are two of the most promising young traditional musicians to come along in the Ottawa Valley in recent years. Marches. This year’s show features four other young people, including veterans Charity Ross and Josh McCoy, rookie Devon Black, and Chantal Elie, a young theatre arts graduate who is concurrently directing the Streetlights Theatre production in Pembroke of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Together, the four do a lot of the comic skits that set the stage for the show’s musical numbers. “They work so well together, we call them Comedy Central,” says Theilheimer. Once again, the company is producing summer concert series featuring world-class performing artists, with free workshops by the artists at 3 p.m. on concert days (except July 28). Last year, the company featured Grievous Angel, April Verch, Gail Gavan and JP Cormier. This year’s shows (all at 7:30 p.m. in Eganville) include: • July 21: Louis Schryer – one of Canada’s top fiddlers – in concert with the amazing André Giroux on guitar and vocals; • July 28: In a Little Shack up the Pontiac – an old-time French Canadian house party host Debbie Bechamp, step-dancer Barry Gilchrist, button accordionist Gaston Nolet, fiddler Francois Dumond, dancer/percussionist Serge Martin and vocalist Marie Claude Breault, along with Germain Leduc on fiddle and piano. • Aug. 3: Stephanie Cadman and Celtic Blaze. Ottawa-born Cadman is a world-champion dancer and an impressive fiddler who can teach anyone to stepdance. She tours the world with her own band as well as with shows like Bowfire, Needfire and Swingstep. • Aug. 10. Russell DeCarles, one of the geniuses behind the enormous success of the band

Prairie Oyster in the ’80s and ’90s, with his new trio, including guitar wizard Steve Briggs and Denis Keldie, a virtuoso country and swing accordionist. “Stone Fence Theatre is a beautiful phenomenon,” says Theilheimer. “The support we’ve received since we got started in 2003 shows how much people care about this Ottawa Valley of ours. Our company is an expression of local pride, and also of the sense of fun people have here, in spite of difficulties. We try to make a night with Stone Fence Theatre the most fun people will have all year.” Local businesses and volunteers support company. Although it had public help to get started, Stone Fence Theatre has operated for five years solely through the support of its audience, local business and its many volunteers. “I don’t know of another company that has the level of local community support that we do,” says Theilheimer. More than 40 people volunteer with the company, working behind the scenes, doing promotion and publicity, seating patrons, and preparing and serving the country-style meals for which the company has become well-known. “Eating together with friends and neighbours is a big part of the Stone Fence experience,” he says. The Opeongo Opera will be performed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays in July (July 19, 20, 26 and 27), Tuesdays and Thursdays in August (Aug. 2, 4, 9 and 11), and Fridays and Saturdays in Eganville, Sept. 23, 24 and 30, Oct. 1, 14 and 15, with special shows Thursday, Oct. 27 and Friday, Oct. 28 in Killaloe at St. Andrews Parish Hall for a special Killaloe homecoming in honour of the company’s late business manager, Joe Murray. The show will also be performed in Sheenboro, Que. Aug. 13. Supper theatre tickets for the show – with a full country-style roast beef dinner – cost $48.67 plus tax. New this year, the company is offering theatre/concert packages, which include seats to one show and one concert, for $69.03 plus tax, which represents a saving of more than five dollars. The youth price for theatre is $26.55. Groups of 10 or more get a 10 percent discount. Groups of 20 or more get a 15 per cent discount. Concert tickets cost $25. Tickets can be ordered by phone at 613-756-3081 or, toll-free, at 1 866 310 1004. This year for the first time, the company has introduced online sales on its website: www.stonefence.ca.

Politics

Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MPP John Yakabuski unveiled Dalton’s Lemonade Stand last Friday at Queen’s Park to illustrate “how Dalton McGuinty’s out-of-touch energy policies defy economic sense.” While Dalton McGuinty believes providing subsidies of up to 80 cents for five-cent power is a good deal, Yakabuski, the PC Energy Critic, said Ontario families, and even kids, can see the fault in his logic. “Every kid who runs a lemonade stand knows you can’t buy lemons for 80 cents and sell the lemonade for five cents. But it’s a simple point that’s lost on this out-of-touch premier,” said Yakabuski. He charged that under the Liberal government hydro rates have skyrocketed 150 per cent for families with smart meters (84 per cent for those without) and noted the HST has been added to home hydro bills, a move the Conservatives say they will eliminate.

The measure will provide additional benefits, worth up to $600 per year for single seniors and $840 per year for couples, to more than 680,000 seniors across Canada who may be at risk of experiencing financial difficulties, she wrote. Other measures passed in the new Parliament include support for young entrepreneurs through a $20 million grant to the Canadian Youth Business

Foundation and a reduction of the in-study interest rate to zero for part-time students (bringing them in line with full time students), she added. Other budget-related legislation provides GST/HST relief for Legion purchases of Remembrance Day poppies and wreaths and improves disability programs. Gallant also writes that “while Canadians welcome the end to our combat role in Afghanistan, let us not forget those soldiers who will remain overseas in a training or advisory capacity, in Afghanistan and elsewhere. Wearing red on Friday is never out of fashion!” For the full column by MP Gallant, please visit the website Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant. www.yourottawaregion.com.

McGregor’s Produce served more than 200 shortcakes and raised $1,500 for Hospice Renfrew at a July 1 strawberry social at the family farm in Lochwinnoch. McGregor’s also presented its last Hospice Renfrew pledge payment of $ 2,000. The event was a huge success and Hospice is grateful for the support, says Helen McGregor, the agency’s administrative assistant. There’s lots of action at McGregor’s of late. “We have an excellent crop of strawberries this year,” said Jim McGregor. Things in the fields had been running very smoothly up until the Friday before Canada Day when a huge downpour caused some damage. “But we’ve still got lots of berries, ” he said. The day neutral variety is being grown on raised beds, a relatively new process at the farm. A pipe runs through the beds, using drip irrigation to keep the plants watered. McGregor’s is also growing tomatoes using raised beds. About 90 acres of produce is grown at McGregor’s.

If you are all like me you are happy to see that summer has finally arrived. That also means our summer student has as well. Our student this year is Shandelle. She will be answering our phones and doing a client survey during her time with us. So, if you get a call please set aside a few minutes to answer some questions that could help us serve you better. I would also like to congratulate Jackie Larmond who was the winner of the 50/50 draw at our 50+ Community Showcase. We were sorry that we had to cancel the Sage Age Theatre that was to be held on June 20 due to low ticket sales.

Walk and BBQ next weekend for ongoing fight against Huntington Disease Join the fun and help raise money for the Huntington Society of Canada (HSC). Volunteers in Pembroke are hosting the first annual Walk & BBQ for Huntington Disease on Saturday, July 23, at the Pembroke Waterfront Marina, and are asking for your help. By participating in this event you can help fund programs in research, education, and individual and family services for those affected by Huntington disease (HD). Huntington disease (HD) is a progressive disease of the brain and affects both children and adults, leading to a decline in cognitive and motor skills and a loss of emotional control. Its impact is relentless, affecting the person’s ability to walk, speak, think and remember. One in 1,000 Canadians is touched by HD, whether at risk, as a caregiver, a family member or a friend. Each child born to a parent with HD has a 50-percent chance of sharing the same fate. Though there are no treatments available that will slow down or stop the disease, hope for a mean-

Former Renfrew County Catholic District School Board Student Trustee, Dustin Garron, is excited to announce his new found and loved project that is expected to launch this September in Renfrew County. The project tilted, The Mental Health Project will aim to assist and educate people in regards to mental illness. Garron, who has been suffering from mental illness himself, has spent the last four months in and out of CHEO’s (Children Hospital of Eastern Ontario) Mental Health Ward. “This project is not only going to help others, but it’s also going to assist me in a large way in my very own recovery,” Garron said. The Mental Health Project is to make mental illness less of a taboo subject, especially in this area. “It’s time that awareness is finally brought to this subject. It’s like Gay Issues in the ’90s. No one wanted to bring it out, but

ingful treatment has never been more real. Learn more at www. huntingtonsociety.ca. Shandy Labine, the event organizer, and a member of Young People Affected by Huntington Disease (YPAHD), has planned this event in honour of her mother, Kathy. She says this about her mom. “My mom is the strongest woman I know. She is the most positive and happy person in my life and has been suffering with HD for over 10 years. My mother can no longer walk, sit up straight, or go to the washroom on her own, and she has a very hard time eating and speaking. “HD is a hereditary disease which haunts my brother and I every day. As a family we try to make mom’s life as bearable and pleasant as possible. It is remarkable how strong she is. She’s the one who keeps us going and smiling.” The July 23 walk goes through the park, followed by a barbecue, a raffle, and music from DJ Nick Levair. Registration opens at 10 a.m, the walk starts at 11 a.m.

New video on Ballads of the Turf STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com

Arnprior-born Bill Galvin’s updated website features a newly minted video. The video is about his critically-acclaimed Ballads of the Turf, which was published in 2006. “Ballads of the Turf captures the timeless essence of life on the racetrack and takes you to a horse racing place you can’t get to any more,” says a news release from American Horse Publications. “It tells the real life stories of colourful Damon Runyonesque-type backstretch characters like Bill the Reverend, Chatahoochee Smith and Sheepherder Bill. Their fascinating stories are vividly captured by the author, who lived among these unforgettable characters who populate his ballads.” The book video is available at www.BalladsoftheTurf.com website and on You Tube. It features beautiful backstretch photos by Robert Bateman at Woodbine; handsome Hill ‘n’ Dale Farms yearlings romp-

ing in their paddocks; illustrations by noted equine artist Elaine Macpherson; and the familiar voice of Ryan Mahan, America’s premier equine auctioneer. The voice-over is that of Woodbine track announcer Dan Loiselle. Galvin was born and raised in Arnprior (1931-51). He resides in Mississauga, Ont., with wife Anny. His happy memories growing up in Arnprior include riding Doc Findley’s 18-year-old pacer GG Kirk in the half-mile saddle races at the Arnprior Fair in the mid 1940s. Another fond memory is jogging Findley’s pacing mare, Slippery Sue, to White Lake and back (20 miles) each day after school in sub-zero weather. “The return trip in a cutter took less than an hour on a snow- packed White Lake Road,” recalls Galvin. “An old buffalo robe helped to keep me warm.” Slippery Sue’s winter conditioning paid off because she won her first start of the season (Victoria Day weekend) at Pembroke’s O’Kelly Park.

SHARON SHALLA Downloadable books, auto repairs, gardening and more. These are just some of the online resources that will be highlighted during the Electronic Resources Open House at Greater Madawaska Public Library on Tuesday, July 19 from 10:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Greater Madawaska Public Library has joined other public libraries across Ontario in offering patrons access to many free electronic resources. These valuable databases, sometimes referred to as the Invisible Internet are resources you won’t find by doing a typical internet search. These are subscription-only databases that are currently being funded by the Ontario Ministry of Culture & Tourism, so we encourage patrons to take advantage of this free access now

Dewey Data MARY JOAN HALE On Saturday, July 9, we welcomed eight new members to the Baby Book Club. Last year, we welcomed 12. Now, you tell me that there are no babies in Greater Madawaska! Nothing makes my blood boil more that the statements, “There are no babies in GM.”; or “There are no kids here.”; or worst of all, “This is a retirement community.” We have all generations here.

while the funding exists. They are available 24/7 through the library’s website from the comfort of your home, or drop in to the library during business hours to access them from our free public access computers. The open house will give an overview of these databases including the Chilton Library database which provides exclusive photographs, diagnostics designed by instructors, step-by-step repair procedures, Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) maintenance schedules, wiring diagrams, recalls and Technical Service Bulletins (TSBs) for automobiles and light trucks in one easy-to-use web site. You can also learn about the very popular Ancestry Library Edition database, which features unparalleled coverage of Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom, including census and vital

A thriving community must serve all ages if it is to survive. The library has endeavoured to do so by providing reading materials, electronic resources, AV materials and programs for all. It is heart warming to see parents and children sitting in a circle at the Preschool Storytyme or reading together in the ‘Snuggle-up-and Read Centre’. Response to our author visits, guest presenters and computer lessons has been good. We just purchased a Baby Change Table to accommodate our littlest patrons.

records; church, court, and immigration records; as well as directories, catalogues, histories, and more. This database is available only from within the library. Another highlight of the open house will be the introduction of the new eBook service where you can download free electronic books to your computer or portable device such as an eReader from the OverDrive website. Electronic audiobooks can also be downloaded to your computer or portable listening device such as an MP3 player. The library will have five Sony eReaders for viewing during the open house. We were fortunate to get them on a temporary loan from the Ontario Library Association, so if you’ve ever wanted to try out an eReader, this is your chance! Some of the other electronic databases featured will be gardening, landscaping

Please visit our open house on Tuesday July 19, between 10:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. to get handson experience with our new electronic databases. There will be free give-aways and draws. Our TD Summer program will be altered this summer since we did not get budget funding for a summer student. Please watch for announcements on the website. While on the site, check out the databases. Sharon has been working at keeping the additions current. She added a ‘Teen Zone’ with databases on such topics as bullying, teen health and well-

and horticulture, teen health and wellness, career cruising, and CPI.Q which is a database with articles from a comprehensive list of Canadian and international journals, magazines – including House Beautiful, selected sections of the Globe and Mail, Canadian biographies, and other reference content – all with a Canadian focus. You can also learn about NoveList, a database which helps you to find out who writes like popular authors. We will also feature the many fun, educational electronic resources for children including Tumble BookLibrary, Tumble TalkingBooks, Grizmek’s Animals, and Kids InfoBits. Come in and enter your name in the free draw for an MP3 player, posters, and books. As an added bonus, we will also hold a book sale during the event. So be sure to mark July 19 on your calendar.

ness, teen lit. I will be retiring at the end of August, but will take my vacation starting the end of July. This is not my last report, but I wish to take this opportunity to thank all trustees for whom I have worked since 2000. To all of the council members, thank you also. I have always had the interests of the patrons and their library first and foremost, so if I spoke out strongly in the past, it was because I believe so strongly in literacy and the need to feed the cultural soul of our community while understanding your need to accommodate

all of GM’s fiscal requirements. The GM staff has always been friendly and helpful. I will miss my daily contact with all of the wonderful patrons who pass through the doors. Our chats, discussions and giggles will stay with me. Most of all, I will miss the children, both at the school and in the library. They have been the highlight of my weeks. I have watched them grow from babes in arms to high school and beyond. Thank you also, to this paper for allowing me to share Dewey Data with you.

Heritage

The Renfrew Mercury - July 14, 2011

McDougall Mill Museum history matters MICHAEL BRADLEY This month, The Renfrew Tearoom is donating proceeds from the sale of their butter tarts to the McDougall Mill Museum. This arrangement is more than just a fundraiser though. It can be used as an example of why understanding history and heritage is important. To most the butter tart is just a common dessert treat and nothing out of the ordinary, but with an understanding of the dessert’s history, we can learn the extraordinary story behind something that seems ordinary. What may come as a surprise to some is that butter tarts are unique to Canada. They originate in New France, the precursor to modern Quebec with “Les Filles Du Roi”. These young French girls were sent to Canada by the King of France to help increase the population in the colony, which

was populated with unmarried young men. When the women arrived they faced many challenges living life in The New World. One of the smaller challenges they faced was what they would fill their tart shells with in this new country. “Les Filles du Roi” looked to what was available in their new home and filled their tarts with maple syrup, maple sugar, butter and dried fruits like raisins. Thus butter tarts were created and since then have only grown in popularity inside and outside of French Canada. Knowing the history of something brings vibrance to everyday life by turning a simple butter tart into a story about the early days of Canada. It also gives Canadians a sense of place and a uniqueness to know their history. Canada the Birthplace of Butter Tarts may not be the first thing many think of

when they think Canada, but knowing one’s history allows for one to go beyond simply saying I am Canadian and to explain why they are. It gives meaning to the things we experience and gives us a better understanding of our surroundings by making us able to explain “why?”. Learning about history is not always the easiest thing to do, which is precisely why museums are important. They pro-

vide an easy means for someone to learn a little history while enjoying themselves. History is more than just random information, it’s when you take into consideration what history means that the light bulbs really start going off. The McDougall Mill Museum in Renfrew is open for the summer 10 a.m. to 4 p.m, seven days a week and we invite you to come by and learn not only some history, but what that history means to you.

#3982 Salem Salem, an easygoing cat with a great personality, deserves to find a great, new home. The two-year-old neutered male was brought to the shelter to find a new home. Salem is affectionate, friendly and loves to be petted. He is good with other cats and is very gentle.

#3997 Murphy

Murphy is an active two-year-old Beagle/ Spaniel mix who was brought to the shelter as a stray and never claimed. He is an active dog who will require regular walks and activities to keep him busy. Murphy knows some basic commands but would benefit from more training. He is cratetrained and housebroken. Murphy gets along with some dogs and would be best suited in a home without cats and older children. He is very sweet and deserves to find a loving new home.

Supplies the shelter needs: bleach, paper towels, surface cleaner and disinfectant wipes. You can call the Arnprior and District Humane Society at 613-623-0916 between noon and 5 p.m Monday to Saturday or visit www.arnpriorhumanesociety.ca

It’s a wonderful sight, seeing a tan-coloured deer nursing two fawns in a field of second growth alfalfa. The fawns are so darn cute with their reddish-brown coat of hair covered in white spots. I see my beef calves nursing all the time so why do I get sentimental about young wildlife having an early morning snack of warm milk? We never saw a live deer when I was a youngster. They stayed hidden in the bush. In the winter we’d see tracks in the cedar swamp and saw where they had been feeding. I don’t know when they would be feasting on our clover and alfalfa fields but it certainly wasn’t when I was getting the cows or working in the hay.

MAYNARD VAN DER GALIEN RURAL ROUTES Now it’s common to see deer and their just-born fawns, especially in the early morning hours and late evenings. For the past 10 summers or so we have young fawns hiding in the tall grass beside the creek in the back hayfield, or bunkered down in the forage that is soon to be sliced off. One of the many advantages of cutting hay with a self-propelled swather is that the operator is sitting up high (like in a combine) and looks ahead and down into the forage. The operator

can watch for little packed down spots where deer will hide their young while they go feed or quench their thirst at a waterhole. Farmers cutting with a haybine or discbine can’t see little fawns because the operator is sitting lower and hay is cut off on one side behind the tractor. Fawns get killed. Early one morning last week I was cutting hay and saw a deer lingering at the end of the hayfield. I knew she had fawns hidden nearby and I was coming closer and closer to where she stayed. There was no way I was going to walk through the tall grass looking for the fawns. The deer could take a run at me. With the header of the swather up, I drove slowly towards the deer, which turned her head

everywhere but not down to the ground. She was trying to fool me. About 40 feet from the deer I spotted one tiny little fawn struggling through the tangly alfalfa trying to get to its mom. It was incredibly tiny with spindly little legs. I went home, had breakfast and cut again later that day. The pair had moved out of the field. Females give birth to one to three (usually two) fawns that are born with a reddish-brown coat covered with white spots that allow them to blend naturally with patterns of sunlight and shade. At birth, a white-tail deer weighs only 4-6 pounds. The one I saw was probably born that night. Just one!

Two unexpected observations from Lime Kiln Road Hello Ila and Jim: Last Sunday, July 3, provided two unexpected observations. I was walking past a swampy area east of Lime Kiln Road when I was startled by a loud, explosive ‘chee-oom’ sound not far away. I turned around and saw an American bittern fly across the swamp and settle near the top of a dead tree, where it remained for 20-30 seconds before flying away. A few minutes later I saw, for the first time, a male indigo bunting perched high on a dead tree just west of Lime Kiln Road. During the last week of June, a blackbilled cuckoo, unmistakable because of the red patches around its eyes that made it look as though it had large, red eyes, alighted on a bush on Gillan Road, just ahead of me. I had never seen one before. Only a few metres away, in nearby bushes, I had two sightings of an American pipit at the end of May and beginning of June. Between the 3rd and 27th of June, I have seen a solitary sandpiper on several occasions. It was usually making its loud, shrill ‘wheet, wheet, wheet’ call. Last year, I saw a solitary sandpiper only once, on July 2, in the same area: possibly the same bird. Regards, Cedric Wright

JIM FERGUSON SCENE FROM THE HAWK’S EYE GREAT ENTERTAINMENT I just had to relate to you our entertainment around 7 o’clock in the evening. Richard and I were just finishing our dinner when I spotted a young white-tailed buck in the neighbour’s field behind our home. Last evening the young animal was intent, feeding on the alfalfa and possibly the odd soya bean left over from last year’s crop. The buck worked his way over to a female turkey and finally she reacted, flapped her wings and flew toward him. He immediately jumped back and went back to grazing. Four or possibly five encounters continued between the two with the deer making the advances toward the turkey. Nothing serious happened between the two. It was wonderful to be a witness to this interesting and I would suspect unusual encounter. We have been visited by both meadowlarks and bobolinks on the front

and back lawns; displays by both cliff and barn swallows; it is absolutely intriguing is to watch the swallows, as they circle around a small pond in the neighbour’s field There will be six or eight swallows circling and catching flies just above the water. Richard has been seeing an oriole in a near-by elm and of course our annual visit by two or three hummingbirds has been delightful. Their aerial battle for supremacy at the feeder is quite entertaining. Richard & Maureen Brennan OSPREYS NEST Henry Smith at Black Donald Lake has seen two offspring of a pair of ospreys that nest in the area. They are a few weeks old but are able look out over the edge of the nest and to consume any fish the adults bring to them. The nest is a few years old but Henry says it grows larger every year. The nest of sticks and brush can reach a height of 10 feet (3 m) and often collapse under its own weight. One researcher found three shirts, one bath towel, an arrow and his rake in the nest of one family he was studying. Also seen in nests have been pieces of rope, fish nets, brooms, old shoes, a straw

hat, bottles and tin cans. The two, sometimes three eggs are incubated for about 35 days by the female. The young fledge in about 10 weeks. AN INDIGO BUNTING Although a bit late in the season, Tracey Marki saw and heard a male indigo bunting claiming a territory. Indigo buntings are members of the finch family and as such will come to our feeders for Niger or sunflower seed. The female builds her nest close to the ground in the crotch of a low bush or shrub often in a tangle of raspberry canes. It is well anchored to the supporting plants. The cup is made of grasses and rootlets and lined with hair and feathers. The two to six eggs hatch in 12 to 13 days. There will be at least one brood and often two. Enjoy your birding.

self, to find a life that I could live and the kind of life that would bring me joy. And that’s exactly what I found here, I found friends. CHOICES Career consultant and Toastmasters aficionado Fran Watson spoke of choices, and how hers had affected her life thus far. Everyone has a story to tell and obstacles to overcome, said Watson. “Our stories reflect who we are and who we are becoming,” said Watson. When people are young, parents make most of their choices, she said. Born in Toronto, Watson lived in the city for 13 years before her family moved. “I left behind all my friends, everything I knew. I knew no one,” she said. One of her first big choices was looming. “I was the new kid in town and there were two groups – the goody-goods and the baddybads,” said Watson. She thrived in high school, playing clarinet, joining the choir and playing sports. She met her husband in her last year of high school, eventually married and at 24 started a family of four children. She was 37 when the next big choice needed to be made. “I was tired of my husband’s infidelities and I asked him to leave,” she said. Instead of facing life as a single mom with a feeling of despair, she decided to seize the moment and get her university degree via correspondence. She recounted getting her first assignment back. “There was a great big red ‘F’ on it. I thought ‘maybe I don’t have what it takes,’” said Watson. It was her children who helped restore her faith. “They gathered around me and hugged me and said ‘we know you can do it,’” she said. The choice was the right one. “In August 2000, after 13 years of distance education, I proudly walked across the stage to receive my diploma,” said Watson.

She also spoke of her role as a career counselor and how positive her experience with Toastmasters has been. Lynne Kobus shared her poem ‘He Walks’ and explained how the experience of having a vision and writing the poem changed her. While she was once one who shied away from public speaking, sharing the poem and joining Toastmasters have helped her to share her creativity and active imagination with others. “If a vision comes along, embrace it, take it in and have fun with it,” said Kobus.

It was a chance for a new Renfrew resident to say the ultimate thank you to family and friends, new and old. Focusing on Your Magnificence, an event held June 24 at the O’Brien Theatre in Renfrew, was an opportunity for Marcus Magdalena to tell his story and thank the many people who helped welcome him and offered their love and support as he settled in and began an important healing process. Special guests for the event included Fran Watson, Lynne Kobus and Lynne Zander, who emceed the event. “Everyone is magnificent,” said Zander. “You have a light inside of you and you are born with this light. It’s up to you to let it shine.” At one time active in theatre and drama, it would be Marcus’ first performance in 14 years, explained Zander. Born Marsha in October 1971, Marcus, in a show that was part performance art, part heartfelt monologue, told of a lifetime of challenges that included instances of abuse at a childhood friend’s home and a feeling of never quite fitting in, living as a straight woman, gay woman, transgendered person, gay man and straight man. The props for Marcus’ performance included a man’s suit coat on one side of the stage and a dress on the other and a washroom sign with the familiar male/female graphics. “I’ve had enough people tell me to get out of their washroom,” said Marcus. In college Marcus had his first lesbian experience and felt he was on track to figuring out where he fit in. After awhile, though, the feeling was back. “I just didn’t feel like one of them,” he said. Then came the decision to start the process of changing genders, which involved shots and treatments. Still, old demons resurfaced. “For 20 years my best friend was alcohol. By the time I was 39 years old I hated the world right back,” said Marcus. Homeless and battling addiction, something had to change. It was October 2010 when Marcus’ path took a distinctly positive turn. “I came to Renfrew and found a community of angels who believed in me,” he said. “They saw the light and came to my rescue.” The path to recovery included a walk back in his life and a look at all the experiences, positive and negative, to bring closure and forgiveness. “I came to Renfrew to find my-
