News - Organizers hope the third annual Shake the Foundation fundraiser does exactly that at the RCAF Wing March 1. Major Canadian headliners Brett Kissel and One More Girl will be joined by local entertainers to help raise money for the Kidney Foundation of Canada and Renfrew Victoria Hospital. One of the major organizers is Carp resident Craig Dunbar, whose own personal life is a striking example of why the fundraiser is important. Dunbar has a long string of relatives in Renfrew. Also, his parents Donna and Pat are former Renfrew residents, and he received kidney dialysis treatment at the Renfrew Victoria Hospital in 2007 and 2008. Dunbar, 41, has just received (Jan. 16) a life-saving kidney with the help of research, which was made possible, in part, by such fundraisers as Shake the Foundation. Dunbar says research allowed him to receive a kidney from someone who wasn’t donor-compatible. “When you talk about research, sometimes people’s eyes glaze over, but I’m living proof that research works,” said Dunbar.

Shake the Foundation Tickets are $35 for Shake the Foundation, where Kissel, a young and rising star, says the audience can expect a wide variety of music, and requests from the crowd. He will also perform knowing his own family has a sense of what it means to support kidney foundation research, since his great uncle Don died of kidney disease. FLAT LAKE AND NASHVILLE
Kissel, 23, who has played professionally since he was 12 years old, hails from Flat Lake, Alta., but has lived in Nashville, Tenn., since last year with his wife, Cecilia. “I realized, after a hundred trips to Nashville, that I better move here,” says Kissel. “It’s great to live in a community where I feel inspired every day.” Like many people in Renfrew County, he knows a thing or two about growing up on a century-old family farm, working with cattle and enjoying a rural lifestyle. In fact, he likes telling the story of the day he rolled into bed last summer at 3 a.m. after giving a concert in Camrose, Alta., only to be awakened for farm chores before seven o’clock. Complaining that he needed more sleep, his grandpa replied, “Wake up, because
you’re no country star on the farm.” And his grandpa was right, says Kissel. “No matter what I do, even if it’s playing in front of 25,000 people, once I get home, work needs to be done.” These days, his parents and grandparents are looking after his cattle, since he’s now working in Nashville, in a tremendously positive music environment. Kissel, whose favourite singer is George Strait, says he continues to garner motivation from the likes of Strait, whom he says continues to improve with time. While in Renfrew, Kissel’s songs will surely include selections from his major label debut album, Started with a Song, which came out in October. That album’s content includes Together, which is about and dedicated to his Grandma Betty and Grandpa Lloyd, and Raise a Glass, which in December was top 10 on the Canadian country music charts. Family and having a good time are core elements of his songs. For example, he credits his Grandmother Memaw’s purchase of a Sears catalogue guitar just before his seventh birthday for helping to ignite his passion for music. Kissel, who now performs up to 150 times a year, starts his eastern Canadian swing

Hard finding a buyer for Renfrew’s old fire truck Steve Newman email@example.com
News - The Renfrew Fire Department isn’t finding a buyer’s market for its used fire truck. Following the recent arrival of its new $847,000 aerial platform truck, the department hoped to sell its 26-year-old aerial ladder truck for about $30,000. But the market’s extremely quiet right now, and the department may just have to be patient before finding a buyer, said Renfrew Fire Chief Guy Longtin at the Jan. 13 meeting of Renfrew council. There used to be a good market for used fire trucks just across the Quebec border. But that has changed, with some recent cash incentives from the Quebec government, explained Chief Longtin. Renfrew followed National Fire Protection Association
guidelines for frontline equipment that included replacement of 25-year-old vehicles. “The market’s not very good right now,” said Longtin. “Having said that, and the Canadian dollar dropping, maybe we’ll be able to sell.” Some salespeople have advised the truck be sold for scrap medal. But Longtin says that might fetch only $5,000, which isn’t much different than the truck’s last set of tires. The truck is still parked in the fire hall, still in service and licensed, but Longtin says the truck is better suited as a water supply or as a backup pumper, in other municipalities, for silos or other elevated locations. The department might receive two or three such calls per year. However, because of the truck’s age, Longtin says he wouldn’t put any firefighter up

the ladder. Elevated water supply can be provided by controls operated at ground level. The truck also has a leak in the rear boom that requires repairs, said the fire chief. Costs to keep the truck on the road, said Longtin, are minimal, at $682 last year for items that included gas and oil. Maintenance costs were $1,600 in 2012 and $3,700 in 2011 when the department bought new tires for the truck. Coun. Jim Miller suggested the truck could be used as a tourist attraction for kids, instead of selling it for scrap metal. “I guess you could,” responded Longtin. “I think it would get better service if it was just used in surrounding areas.” Meanwhile, the fire department will continue to advertise to sell the aerial truck.

MP rallies support for AECL, MPP ready to fight election on hydro issues Peter Clark
News - It’s estimated more than 300 people lined up inside the Horton Community Centre to meet with Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant and MPP John Yakabuski at their 2014 New Year’s levee Sunday afternoon. Gallant told the crowd an amazing array of companies provide jobs right here in the Valley. She pointed out that Chalk River Laboratories (Atomic Energy of Canada Limited) is the second top job provider and one of the Valley’s top corporate citizens. “I mention this because 2014 is going to be a year when major decisions are going to be made regarding that company,” Gallant stressed. “In the coming months, I’m going to be asking everyone in the community to pull together to ensure that the rest of the country knows and understands how vital AECL is to Canadians, Canadians who are afflicted by heart disease, Canadians battling cancer, support to our national security, the technologies they develop, support for our clean, af-
fordable, sustainable energy, and most of all, how important they are to our friends, our neighbours, the human capital we have in the riding. Those people, with their earnings, they go on to support the rest of the economy. “By working together as one, we can beat and surpass any challenge that is in front of us,” Gallant said. Yakabuski said politicians sometimes ask themselves, “Oh God, why do I do this? “It’s all of those days you get out and meet the people, the real people, and then you say to yourself. ‘Oh, I know exactly why I do this.’ ” Yakabuski said two comments came up the most as people paraded through the receiving line – When is the next election? and What the hell can we do about that hydro?” Said Yakabuski: “Let’s get to that damned election, and then maybe we can do something about that damned Hydro.” A lot of jobs are threatened because of the cost of electricity in the Province of Ontario,” the MPP added. “That’s something that

Unfortunately, the current government just wants to continue walking down that road, building more windmills. In fact, we have about 3,000 megawatts from wind today. They went to make

Exclusive ice resurfacer advertising deal struck with Tim Hortons Steve Newman steve. firstname.lastname@example.org
News - The Renfrew recreation department has signed an eight-year arena ice resurfacer advertising package with Tim Hortons. The revenue of $20,000, or $2,500 per year, will be transferred to an equipment replacement reserve, to provide partial funding for replacement of the resurfacer. The exclusive agreement goes into effect April 1, 2014 and ends March 31, 2022. Tim Horton is responsible for the supply and installation of all decaling on the new ice resurfacer, which is sched-
uled to arrive in town by late March. This work, subject to town approval, is to be paid by Tim Hortons. The agreement also allows for the town to provide Tim Hortons with the ice resurfacer for marketing and special events at a Renfrew Tim Hortons location two dates per year. Any cost to transport the machine will be the responsibility of Tim Hortons. There are two Tim Hortons in Renfrew. The current and long-standing advertisers on the old ice resurfacer are Ray’s Flower, Crozier Construction and Mickey’s Promotions. Those three businesses were
given first dibs for advertising on one-quarter, one-half or all of the new Olympia Millennium ice resurfacer. Board advertising at the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre accounts for another $12,000 to $13,000 per year, but Hill says next season’s goal is to reach $20,000 in arena advertising. “We’re doing well, but like everybody in the business, we’d like to be selling more advertising.” The agreement was struck after town staff compared their rates with those in North Glengarry, Mississippi Mills, South Dundas, Woolwich and Greater Napanee.

Hortness named Admaston-Bromley Police Services Board new chairman
Continued from page 3
Hortness and wife Shirley retired to their Douglas rural property in 2011. Hortness is involved with the Admaston-Bromley emergency management committee, and is a member of the Eganville Branch of the Royal Canadian Legion.
Peter Clark email@example.com
News - Admaston-Bromley has a successor to Michael Quilty as the chair of the township’s police services board. Mayor Raye-Anne Briscoe introduced Dallas Hortness to council Jan. 16 “Dallas is a Highway 60 ratepayer and has a career that is very impressive with the Canadian military,” Mayor Briscoe said. Hortness first joined the Canadian Forces at 17 as an officer candidate at the University of Saskatchewan. On receiving his BA in 1972, he served as a Military Police Lieutenant in Calgary and with the multi-national United Nations Military Police on the island of Cyprus. He voluntarily left the Canadian Forces in 1977. From 1977 to 1989 Hortness resided with his wife Shirley and their four children at Manor Saskatchewan where he was owner of a retail lumber and residential construction company. He also coached minor baseball and hockey and served on the local Credit Union and public school boards. Rejoining the Canadian Forces as a logistics officer in January 1990, Hortness held a succession of posi-

Twice he deployed on six-month NATO missions, in Bosnia and Kosovo. Major Hortness moved with his family on three-year international postings in 2000 to NATO Command Southeast in Izmir, Turkey, and again in 2006 as Canadian Liaison Officer at Fort Lee in Virginia.
McNab-Braeside Township asked for support, by opposing the Ontario Provincial Police new billing model for charging municipalities for policing services starting in 2015, and Admaston-Bromley was quick to back the local township. The proposed billing model charges each municipality a flat $260 rate per household, plus a variable charge for each call for service. The resolution to abolish this proposal will also be forwarded to Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne, as well as the minister of community safety and correction services, attorney general, association of municipalities of Ontario, and all Renfrew County municipalities. “That’s a good resolution. This model should be scrapped,” said Mayor Briscoe emphatically. “Let’s say it the way it is.”

Three key priorities were established for the caucus for 2014: • Completing a new economic development strategy for Eastern Ontario and working with its partners, including the Eastern Ontario Mayors’ Committee, to finalize a plan for its implementation. • Continuing its research and advocacy work on matters related to the financial sustainability of municipal government in Eastern Ontario. This will include the writing and publication of three new ‘white papers’. • Working to stop the spiraling costs of policing that are crippling municipal budgets. “I am truly thrilled to have been elected to the chair’s position,” stated EOWC chair and warden Jean Paul St. Pierre. “The Eastern Ontario Wardens’ Caucus is working very hard to support all property taxpayers in the 103-member municipalities across the EOWC region and I look forward to lending my help to such efforts. “The EOWC takes pride in doing its homework and coming up with new ideas that contribute to positive change in our municipalities.” “One of our major concerns is the spiraling cost of policing. The EOWC is lending its support and its voice to the efforts to reduce those costs because they are simply unsustainable. Municipalities already have
to consider spending reductions on critical infrastructure such as roads and bridges because of escalating police budgets,” added St. Pierre. “The EOWC is prepared to look at any strategy, including working with all eastern municipalities on negotiating a single, region-wide contract. Simply changing the distribution of existing costs between municipalities is akin to shuffling the deck chairs on the Titanic,” St. Pierre said. “The economic development of our region has been recognized as a priority, and for that reason I welcome the release and implementation of the forthcoming regional economic strategy for Eastern Ontario,” added vice-chair Thompson. “I’m eager to see the results of this year-long collaboration, whose distribution next month will represent a significant step forward for the EOWC and its many partners.” WARDEN EMON
“Municipalities across the region continue to face significant financial shortfalls, and one way to curb this tide is to promote economic development and encourage permanent, sustainable funding,” said County of Renfrew Warden Peter Emon. “We have a lot of work to do this year and we have taken the first important steps by setting our priorities and we will stay focused on them. Without a doubt, 2014 will be another busy year.”
