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 steve.newman@metroland.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

Exclusive ice resurfacer advertising deal struck with Tim Hortons Steve Newman steve. newman@metroland.com

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 peter.clark@metroland.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.

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.”

Bald eagle photo goes big time Lifestyle - Ruth, Doug and Dan Quast were ice ďŹ shing on Constant Lake near Dacre when they noticed a pair of sharp eyes watching the action. A bald eagle had arrived and perched in a nearby tree. The bird remained quite still and Ruth was able to get several pictures of the stately adult bird. When the Quasts returned home Ruth sent the picture to CJOH in Ottawa in the category â&#x20AC;&#x153;picture of the dayâ&#x20AC;?. It was chosen and J.J. Clark mentioned her name and where the picture was taken on his weather segment of the news. The picture certainly merited being shown. There was no mention of the number or size of any ďŹ sh caught. Bald eagles gather in areas where people have their ďŹ sh huts (we used to call them shacks) out on the ice and have associated the huts with food, ďŹ sh, mainly perch thrown on the ice. A word of advice, do not leave â&#x20AC;&#x153;keepersâ&#x20AC;? out of the hut or you may have given your ďŹ sh to a passing eagle. It has happened on the Ottawa River, near Castleford.

JIM FERGUSON Scene from the Hawkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eye it approaches and the blue jays scatter in every direction returning only after the woodpecker leaves. Scott and Georgia feel that it is becoming tolerant of their presence because they are able to come to within a few feet of the bird. CANADA GOOSE

David Rodden called and on a trip through Balaclava he saw a lone Canada goose below the dam on Constant Creek. The bird must be unable to ďŹ&#x201A;y or it would have migrated early in the fall. It will very likely survive if the water in the creek does not freeze over. A few handfuls of corn would not go astray and will help the goose survive. WILD TURKEYS

SNOWY OWL

Leo Fremo saw an immature snowy owl perched in a small spruce tree off Highway 417 near Arnprior. He was able to get two pictures of the bird, one when it was perched and one when it ďŹ&#x201A;ew. The second picture shows the pure white underside of the bird. You will remember that last week we described a photo by Mary Steele of the dark upper side of an immature snowy owl. No matter how you look at this northern owl it is a wonderful site to see, Leo described it as â&#x20AC;&#x153;awesomeâ&#x20AC;?. Our hope is that they are getting enough to eat, with the temperatures so cold they require several mice or voles each day to survive. There is no way that we know of to provide them with food. PILEATED WOODPECKER

Scott Rodden and Georgia Quinn sent us a picture of a male pileated woodpecker that comes to their suet feeder each day. Scott says that the woodpecker gives his loud penetrating call when

Mary Steele has two pair of cardinals at her feeders. They have been late in arriving and appear only on the milder days. Many birds such as nuthatches, goldďŹ nches, cardinals and chickadees do not come to feeders on the very cold days because the energy they gain from the food is less than the energy it takes to ďŹ nd the food.

David and Anne Brown feed a small ďŹ&#x201A;ock of wild turkeys that have found a way to empty the Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sunďŹ&#x201A;ower feeder every day.

SUET FEEDERS

We received a call from Joanne Stack at Kamaniskeg Lake regarding the kind of suet that is best to feed the birds. We suggest the hard suet that surrounds the kidneys of sheep or beef cattle, unfortunately it difďŹ cult to buy. If you do manage to ďŹ nd some place it in a wire cage or onion bag and place it away from your seed feeders.

EDITORIAL

Drivers deserve pat on the back Opinion - The snowmobilers and skiers are happy, but the cold, snowy start to this winter isn’t doing municipal taxpayers any favours. Snow plowing and removal budgets for the latter part of 2013 and the first three weeks of 2014 have been strained by the storms that have challenged work crews all around the region. For the most part, local roads have been fairly well plowed despite the inopportune timing of many of the snowfalls, happening often as they have on weekends and holidays. Highway 417 was a bit of a mess for a couple of days, with unplowed lanes and icy ruts causing problems for early morning commuters. However, drivers who exercised caution and adapted to the conditions were able to make it into work safely. As for those who can’t seem to resist speeding or passing in dangerous conditions, it’s too

bad you have to drag up all our car insurance rates with your impatience and recklessness. The snow plow drivers must shake their heads at some of the craziness they see as they try to make our roads safe for all. In winters like this, snow plow drivers deserve a hearty pat on the back for their dedication and skill in what can be an exceedingly tricky job. The plow operators have been out many times in the early morning doing an effective job keeping the highways and county roads clear. And out in the country, municipal operators have been ensuring rural residents stay connected to their schools, hospitals, work and shopping. Their commitment to our safety is appreciated.

Blaming unions for everything is growing tiresome To the editor: Opinion - While I have never been in a union, myself, I find it very tiresome that so many people blame unions for everything from bankruptcies to bad weather. In truth, unions are responsible for the laws and regulations that prevent companies from robbing and effectively enslaving their workforce, that force companies to pay attention to worker safety, that give employees days off and vacations so that they do no bum out that create retirement pensions, and much more. While it is true that some union leaderships are guilty of making sweetheart deals with management that favour their friends and relatives while sacrificing the interests of the general workforce, such corruption is by nature two-sided. Moreover, managements are often guilty of various forms of nepotism, favour-

ing their friends and relatives with pay and bonuses and other benefits not given to other employees. The rule of not discussing one’s pay with fellow employees conveniently hides a great many sins. Canada Post has historically been a bellwether in this country: If Canada Post employees get sick leave and other benefits, other companies give similar benefits to their workers; if Canada Post employees lose pay or benefits, other employees also lose soon after. In perusing the Canada Post Annual Report mentioned in the Jan. 9 issue of The Renfrew Mercury, I was reminded of the so-called Good Government Act and other omnibus legislation. Instead of a succinct document with clearly stated information, there is a longwinded tome that buries what pertinent data it may contain

among pictures, charts, peptalk, and vague titles that obscure what the figures actually mean. What the company’s report does not mention is how much money is spent sending) managers and executives — and sometimes their families — on expensive trips to foreign countries, trips that amount to little more than holidays at company expense. Nor does it mention how many employees get fired for false charges just before they would retire. Or how much of the pension fund is actually paid to management as compared with workers. And how much money is wasted frivolously changing practices or cutting workers when a new manager or executive wants to establish his/her authority or curry superiors’ favour. The problems at Canada Post run far deeper than

union-management relations and they are mirrored in companies throughout Canada and the world. The majority of the wealthy and the wealthy-wannabes want to return to the days of feudalism and serfdom when people were worked to death and had no rights whatsoever, while the handful of feudal lords literally got away with murder and accumulated all the wealth. A real-life Hunger Games society. From small to large to multinational, the majority of companies try their very best to cheat workers out of pay and benefits and safely measures, to cut their workforce to the barest minimum, and to cut service or product quality while raising prices. The evidence is visible everywhere. But instead of placing blame where it belongs, too many people point the finger at the unions — some out of

ignorance, some out of fear, and some out of worse motives. Blaming the wrong people will not fix the problem. Nor will hanging onto outdated or warped ideas about companies, about politics, or about our social order. Be thankful we have unions, and support them. Governments that attack unions soon turn on the general populace in police-state tactics to suppress opposition to their oppressions. History is full of examples. The world is full of current examples, as well. Some are in our own backyard, if we dare to look. Allison Azulay Renfrew

To the editor: Opinion - Canadian Blood Services would like to extend a warm thank-you to everyone who donated at the recent blood donor clinic on Jan. 15. Recent winter storms have caused the closure of more than 24 clinics across Canada and we needed this community to come out strong for blood donation this week. I am so pleased to report that the blood donor clinic collected 59 donations of blood on our target of 58. This level of support is helping us to recover and ensure that we continue to be able to meet hospital demand. Congratulations, Cobden! Jennifer Heale Canadian Blood Services

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Please act to restore Canada’s democracy standing programs that are the lifeblood of a modern progressive society – in such areas as the environment, science, statistics, libraries and culture. That such extreme departures from Canada’s mainstream culture have been imposed by a political minority is clearly a profound failure of our democracy that calls urgently for a reformed electoral system to ensure that the wishes, needs, and opinions of all Canadians are properly reflected in Parliament. The Law Commission of Canada, in its 2004 report to the Minister of Justice, counselled that this can best be accomplished with the “mixed member” proportional voting system used in most democracies. To accomplish this a new government will be needed. However, notwithstanding its poor current polling numbers, thoughtful observers predict that if the opposition parties continue to split the mainstream vote the Harper government could well be re-elected under our outdated voting system. For this reason, the Citizens’ Forum for Democracy appeals to Thomas Mulcair and Justin Trudeau together with Elizabeth May, to temporarily put the interests of the country above their normal partisan rivalry. We respectfully ask them to prevail upon their parties to co-operate to the extent necessary for the next federal election to ensure the election of a government representing mainstream Canada – even possibly a “mainstream alliance” – with the primary goal of bringing in a fair voting system as soon as possible. Surely, the progressive majority of Canadians has the right to expect this of its leaders. John Carley, Chair Citizens’ Forum for Democracy Elgin

To the editor: Opinion - An open letter to Thomas Mulcair and Justin Trudeau. The Citizens’ Forum for Democracy is an Eastern Ontario group of supporters of three opposition Parties, together with independents including supporters of the former federal Progressive Conservative Party. We believe our views reflect those of the majority of Canadians that are distressed at the grave loss of our democracy, and we call on Thomas Mulcair and Justin Trudeau to recognize that, together with Elizabeth May, they share the leadership of a mainstream majority of Canadians whose interests seriously need their joint attention. Our concerns began in 2008 when Prime Minister Harper prorogued Parliament rather than face a likely vote of non-confidence, so preventing a coalition of political parties representing a majority of Canadian voters from becoming government. This interruption of the normal democratic process under our parliamentary system can now be seen as the beginning of an agenda to use our out-dated electoral system to enable an ideological minority to bring about transformative changes to our country that directly contradict the values of the majority of Canadians and that have destroyed our standing abroad. Two most egregious examples stand out. First, this government’s aggressive efforts to sabotage international agreements to combat climate change were a primary factor in Canada’s humiliating defeat in 2010 when we sought a non-permanent seat on the United Nations Security Council. Secondly, after winning a majority of seats in the 2011 federal election with the support of less than one-quarter of eligible voters, this government, using unfair omnibus bills and limits on debate, has gutted or eliminated long-

Expanded high-speed to boost economic development in county Broadband service to be added to county business parks Michael Barber County of Renfrew

News - There will be even more broadband service available in the County of Renfrew than was expected at the start of a multi-year multimillion dollar project in 2011. The Eastern Ontario Regional Network (EORN), in which the County of Renfrew is a founding partner, has expanded high-speed fibre internet connections across the County. Initiated by the Eastern Ontario Wardenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Caucus (EOWC) and supported by federal, provincial, municipal and private sector funding, the $170 million EORN project has been vitally important to residents, businesses and investors in the County of Renfrew. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The speed of business and personal interaction today demands access to high-speed communications, and expanded and improved broadband is critical to the economic and community development future of the County,â&#x20AC;? notes Warden Peter Emon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Access to high-speed is expected and required for connectivity to business, friends and family and the delivery of entertainment into the home. EORN has levelled the playing field for the County, making us competitive as a place for business, investment and family life,â&#x20AC;? says Mayor of Petawawa and EORN board member Bob Sweet. Rob Bersan, operations manager of Pastway Wood Preservers expressed his companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s view. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thanks to DSL access becoming available to our business, we were able to secure contracts with companies such as Loweâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Canada and streamline our invoicing process ... using

EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) for our invoicing we have been able to take a job that took four to six hours a day and have reduced it to one to two hours a day. I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t imagine not having DSL available to our business now that we have it.â&#x20AC;? RiverRun Whitewater Resort provides rafting, paddling, camping, accommodations and adventure services to guests from around the world. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We operate our reservation system on-line to provide world-class service to our guests but, without high capacity and reliable broadband we have suffered many service outages which have cost us revenues and greatly damaged our guest relations, says owner Margaret Maloney. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are very excited and thankful for the efforts by the County of Renfrew and Eastern Ontario Regional Network to finally bring broadband service to Whitewater Region. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This will allow us to move forward with new business development, reliable on-line booking and communications with our guests and enable us to meet our guest expectations for high bandwidth communications during their stay with us,â&#x20AC;? she said. In the County of Renfrew the industrial parks and clusters which will receive improved high-speed connectivity are Renfrew Industrial Park; Highway 17/41 Industrial Cluster in Laurentian Valley; Petawawa Industrial Park; Barryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bay Industrial Park in Madawaska Valley; Pine Grove Business Park in McNab/Braeside; Grants Settlement Road Area and Greenwood Road Area in Whitewater. Overall, the EORN project has brought enhanced high-speed DSL and satellite connectivity to over 95 per cent of the homes and businesses in areas of the County which were underserviced.

Ontario government protects the natural environment

2

Community - Ontario is helping Ducks Unlimited Canada invest more of its resources in protecting wetland habitat. Through a five-year agreement, Ontario is making it easier for Ducks Unlimited Canada to repair or build small, low-risk dams. These dams help protect and preserve important habitat for waterfowl. This new approach is deTRIPP CREATIVE INC. signed to save time and money, David Orazietti, Minister of Natural Resources, and and allow government to focus Mark Gloutney, DUCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s director of regional opera- its resources towards reviewing tions - eastern region, sign an agreement in Toronto large, complex dam applications. on Jan. 24. Protecting the environment will enhance the quality of life for Ontario families and ensure s#HIROPRACTIC a dynamic, green economy for future generations. s#USTOM/RTHOTICS This is part of the governs,ASER4HERAPY mentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan to invest in people, No referral necessary build modern infrastructure and

support a dynamic and innovative business climate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wetlands are essential for the long-term health of our watersheds, for providing critical habitat to a variety of species and for ensuring our own continued well-being,â&#x20AC;? says Minister of Natural Resources David Orazietti. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The province has been working with Ducks Unlimited Canada for 40 years to protect, restore and manage wetland habitat. This initiative will allow the organization to spend more time conserving vital wetland habitat in Ontario,â&#x20AC;? he says. Mark Gloutney, Ducks Unlimited Canada director of regional operations - eastern region, is pleased with the partnership. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ducks Unlimited Canada is very pleased to be continuing its partnership with the Govern-

ment of Ontario. This agreement streamlines our approval process and means we are able to invest more of our resources on the ground, protecting and restoring Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wetlands for future generations,â&#x20AC;? says Gloutney. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As we continue to lose wetlands at an alarming rate across Canada, it is exciting to have a government that shares our vision of conserving these valuable natural resources.â&#x20AC;? Following are a few quick facts on Ducks Unlimited and wetlands: â&#x20AC;˘ The Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) is responsible for how dams are managed in Ontario. Dam owners must get MNR approval for the construction of new dams and certain repairs and alterations to existing dams. â&#x20AC;˘ Last year, Ontario signed a 15-year memorandum of un-

derstanding with Ducks Unlimited Canada to reaffirm a shared commitment to wetland conservation. â&#x20AC;˘ Wetlands are areas where land is wet either permanently or seasonally. â&#x20AC;˘ Ontario is home to approximately 24 per cent of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wetlands and 6 per cent of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wetlands. â&#x20AC;˘ In the last decade, Ontario and Ducks Unlimited Canada have worked together to conserve more than 16,500 hectares of wetlands and habitat. Ducks Unlimited Canada built and repaired 24 dams in Ontario in 2013. â&#x20AC;˘ Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Land Stewardship and Habitat Restoration Program provided funding to 24 projects in 2013 to help restore and rehabilitate more than 1,024 hectares of important habitat, including wetlands.

Frewfest Winter Carnival A blustery breeze wasn’t about to dampen the spirits of these Renfrew Frewfest-goers during the opening-night of the town’s winter festival Friday night at Ma-Te-Way Park. From left are kids on-ice supervisor Jessica Mahusky, Jada Newberry, Gab McNulty, Renfrew recreation program director Jo-anne Caldwell, Damion Mee and Sean O’Neil.

It takes a team effort to come up with a good snow sculpture. After a long week of subzero temperatures, there was plenty of snow to go around for everyone. There were also a lot of things to do for the entire family, both at Ma-Te-Way Park, and inside the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre throughout the day-long festival. The day included Beavertails, petting zoo, horse-drawn sleigh rides, Yaki entertainment, vintage snow machines, skating and exhibits, and featured a bonfire with marshmallows early Saturday evening followed by a fireworks display.

Little Red Theatre kept kids and parents entertained in the upstairs hall at the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre Saturday morning.

News - Cheryl Gallant, MP for RenfrewNipissing-Pembroke, was pleased to recently welcome innovators from across the Upper Ottawa Valley, Innovation Valley North, to AECL’s Keys Campus in Deep River for an information session on federal research and development initiatives. Representatives from the National Research Council and FedDev Ontario gave presentations on opportunities for Small and Medium Enterprises. Public Works & Government Services Canada was also on hand to provide information on Smart Procurement and the Build in Canada Innovation Program. Among those in attendance at the symposium were Haley Industries of Haley Station and Arnprior Aerospace from the aerospace sector, together with Atomic Energy of Canada

Ltd. and Bubble Technologies of Chalk River from nuclear-related industries. Also participating in the event were innovators in the fashion sector, Morning Mist Designs of Pikwàkanagàn, from the microbrewery industry, Whitewater Brewing Company of Foresters Falls, and with the agricultural technology sector, Steqcan from Westmeath. “I was pleased with the turnout from Innovation Valley North companies to the briefing,” stated Gallant. “We are very grateful to AECL for providing the venue for the meeting and the tremendous support of Dr. Robert Walker, company president, all personnel from the business development branch, and those who assisted with electronic equipment.” This seminar was the first of a series planned for 2014 to showcase federal programs available to companies in Renfrew County, and to promote networking among leading job creators in the area.

News - The OPP is preparing for the Provincial Communications Centres Symposium by calling out for communicators for the March 19-20 event in Orillia. Thirty participants will explore a career in call-taking, dispatch and civilian data entry. The OPP is inviting applications from all men and women who are interested in exploring civilian employment in a provincial com-

munications centre and looking at the OPP as a future employer. In-depth presentations, mentoring sessions and an on-location tour of the Orillia Provincial Communications Centre will provide a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at frontline and specialized policing services. The application deadline is Feb. 16 at midnight. For details and the application form, visit www.opp.ca.

Five-year $55 million injection for new industrial biomass program Editor’s note: The following is a news release from the office of Renfrew-NipissingPembroke MP Cheryl Gallant. News - Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant is pleased to announce the launch of the federal government’s industrial biomaterials program. The program seeks to ensure the innovative ideas of Canadian businesses get to the marketplace, by combining the expertise of the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) with the business know-how of Canadian industry leaders. This collaboration will result in the ability to manufacture new lightweight, cost-effective and bio-sourced materials for next generation vehicles and homes, to improve the quality of life of Canadians while reducing industrial waste. Locally, we have at least two small- and medium-sized enterprises that have been using

biomaterials in non-traditional applications. Valley Bio is a Cobden area business that creates high-value agricultural products, including bio-fuels, organic paint, and is the leading distributor of hemp seed genetics in Eastern Canada. Ensyn Technologies of Renfrew is a producer of liquid bio-fuels made from wood biomass agricultural residues. The industrial biomaterials program is a $55-million initiative over five years consisting of a $30 million investment by the NRC, and $25 million generated through collaborative projects with industry, academic institutions and other government departments. “Helping to keep Canada’s transportation and construction industries competitive in global markets by combining resources from Canadian companies to advance research and development in the manufacturing of industrial biomaterials has led to job creation in all regions of Canada,” stated Gallant.

Why cycling is good for county and why it’s such a great place for cycling Ish Theilheimer

Lifestyle - It’s good to see cycling in the news in Renfrew County. The place is a natural marvel for riding, and the potential benefits of cycling for the county and its people are many. I confess: I’m a ‘rider,’ and I have been for 50 years. With luck, I hope to get in a lot more riding. For seven months a year, it offers me a great way to stay in shape, get around, save money and enjoy the outdoors. And there are few greater places to be outdoors, on a bike, than in Renfrew County. Safety, however, is a big concern. Most riders know someone who was killed on a bike somewhere. I do. There aren’t many sports you can say that about. Not many people get killed playing hockey, football or even skiing, for instance. Safety concerns keep a lot of people off bikes. These concerns are not insurmountable. If you’re careful, ride by the rules and make yourself very, very visible, you’re pretty safe, most of the time on a bike, which is why I plan to keep riding the roads of Renfrew County. I’d like to see them become a lot safer, though. It’s one of the best places I know to to ride. My wife Kathy and I almost always take or rent bikes when we travel, and, in this way, we’ve seen parts of Quebec, Nova Scotia, P.E.I., France, England, Cuba and many places in Ontario and the U.S. When you go by bike, you see a things up close that you’d never catch in a car. You can stop when you see something amazing. It’s easy to talk to

people, and they’re usually a lot more friendly than if you roar up in an airconditioned chariot. You rarely find better riding than here. Kathy, in particular, loves being able to ride 12 km. to work at Killaloe Public School. She loves the boost it gives her health and setting a good example for students. Renfrew County offers riders amazing scenery, a growing network of paved backroads, a lot of friendly people and many great things to do. When it comes to vacationing, Kathy and I are always on the lookout for places as nice to visit with bikes as Renfrew County, and they’re hard to find. When we find them we go spend money in those places at restaurants, hotels, services, gifts to bring home, and events. Cycling is really big right now. You’ll see a lot of bikes on TV commercials these days aimed at younger and middle-age adults. That’s because Canadian public interest in cycling is at an all-time high. Global News calls cycling “the new golf.” More than a million Ontarians ride daily. Small things could really help promote safe cycling. A well-marked network of bike routes would steer riders to the best and safest roads and alert drivers to the presence of cyclists. Ongoing efforts to educate cyclists and drivers – both locals and passers-through – can make our roads safer. Hardened shoulders can encourage riders and save lives. Hardening shoulders is controversial, though, because it costs money at a time when local governments are being squeezed on other fronts. That’s why an incremental approach

like the one proposed by Renfrew County’s staff makes sense. Their plan is to harden shoulders on roads being rehabilitated. It will cost less than two dollars per household annually to do this, which seems a small price to pay for safety. Where real leadership is needed is the province of Ontario. Last year, for instance, the province repaved the section of highway we ride to Killaloe and Golden Lake and actually made the strip on the right side of the road narrower than it had been previously. It did nothing to encourage people to get out of their cars, get some exercise and quit burning gas. It can be quite terrifying to have a car or truck pass you with less than an arm’s length clearance when you’re on a bike and they’re going

100 km/hour. This is one of the main reasons why more Canadians don’t ride. They’re scared out of their wits, and with some justification. Cyclists are entitled, by law, to ride on all roads except freeways. As a rider, the safest place to be is where drivers can see you, which means out on the road, but this is a not a comfortable place to be on a busy highway. The provincial government introduced a strategy to promote cycling last year. A lot of it comes across as wellmeaning talk. MTO should be hardening shoulders on all roads it repaves, just as Renfrew County’s staff has proposed. Renfrew County is a great place to ride, and more cycling would be good for Renfrew County. Through my work with a theatre

company that brings thousands of people to the Ottawa Valley, I see real payback potential. If the County develops a national or international reputation as a bike-friendly, can’t-miss, natural and cultural attraction, the economic benefits can be substantial. Hospitality is already the county’s biggest industry, and it can become much bigger. Making the county more bike-friendly will give this, our main sector, a big additional boost. Renfrew County is indeed a great place to cycle, but it could be a much better and safer place with a bit of attention, and that effort would pay off in many important ways.

ART IN OUR MIDST

I thought I would bring everyone up to date to what is happening in the art world in and around the Valley and Ottawa that involves many RAG members. If you check out the Renfrew Town Hall there is now artwork hanging there. This was one of the proposals of the Master Plan passed by the town last year. The Renfrew Medical Centre’s hallways are lined with over 50 paintings, which helps temper a trip to the doctor. Sheila Fletcher has paintings in Dr. Rouble’s office, and Jill Alexander has her work in Dr. King’s as well at The Dash of Fab on Raglan. You can also see many paintings of local artists at the Renfrew Tea Room where the walls are covered from table to ceiling with wonderful works. I won’t stop there because John Wilson Investments (formerly Money Concepts) features RAG members in their window every week. Donohue Art and Frame supports local artists and you can see their works upstairs on the sec-

VALLEY

ond floor. March 1 sees Frank Harper taking part in the Music and Art Expo at Era on Clarence Street in Ottawa and Jill Alexander painted a door for Habitat Unhinged that will be part of an auction for Habitat for Humanity. I know there are other events and other artists that are not mentioned here but, check out our website for future events. Renfrew and area is blessed with many talented people, so take the time to look at the places mentioned and appreciate what you see. Our project for the next meeting was suggested by one of our newest members, Laurie, suggesting that we bring in our version of a stained glass window. It is one thing to do it in glass but to capture the look of a window with the colours on paper or canvas should be interesting. So get on your thinking caps, grab the brushes and go for it. See you Tuesday, Feb. 4 at 7 p.m. at Trinity-St. Andrew’s United Church, 291 Plaunt St. (please use Quarry entrance). Everyone welcome. Keep in mind, Art In the Park 2014 is July 12 and 13, 2014.

Oh well, as I think I have said before, this is the time when most artists get the bulk of their painting done. Inside where it is warm, a great time to get your creativity down on canvas or paper.

Heart Month was inspired by a fundraising initiative called “Heart Sunday.” The concept was adopted in British Columbia in the mid-1950s; in Ontario in 1958, and has since expanded across the country. Volunteers With Heart Today Heart Month is a much broader campaign that mobilizes Canadians to rally together in raising awareness and funds that have

an enormous impact on the lives of not just heart and stroke patients, but all Canadians. Through the generosity and compassion of volunteers, the Heart and Stroke Foundation has been able to fund critical life-giving research, education and advocacy programs that help save lives.

Good day for hockey and fishing The Renfrew firefighters held their annual ice fishing derby on the Bonnechere River Saturday. Hunter Muselak, left, and Nick Wright decide to get their own brand of river hockey going during the ice fishing derby. At right, the Coulas and Plazek families team up for some ice fishing. In front from left are Tamara Plazek, Miriam Plazek and Ainslie Coulas; and back row, Aaron Plazek, Elsie Coulas and Marsha Coulas. Ainslie Coulas had caught a 1.5-pound pike about an hour earlier. The Plazeks came all the way from Peterborough to participate in the derby. PETER CLARK/METROLAND

Anglers getting lines ready for Castleford Ice Fishing Derby Feb. 15 Peter Clark peter.clark@metroland.com

Sports - The popular Castleford Charity Ice Fishing Derby is ready to roll in 2014. This year’s ninth-annual derby is set for Saturday, Feb. 15 on the family day weekend. It runs from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. “What better way to enjoy free family fishing weekend than outside in the fresh air,” committee member and treasurer Don Storie said. The Castleford Charity Ice Fishing Derby has raised more than $40,000 for local charities over the first eight years, Storie noted. “All of this is made possible by the

overwhelming support of our local businesses, volunteers and residents of the Valley who support our charity efforts.” GOOD CAUSES

The 2014 recipients are Community Living Renfrew County South (Arnprior and Renfrew), Horton Community Centre and Hospice Renfrew. Last year Storie and committee president Vern Barr presented cheques of $2,300 to Community Living, CEDSA (Assisting Children With Ectodermal Dysplasia Syndromes) and the Horton Community Centre.

MORE ON WEBSITE

Information on the fishing derby can be found on the website www. castlefordicefishingderby.com. Entry fees are adults $10, and ages 17 and under $5. Tickets are available at JR’s County Store in Chenaux, Robbins Convenience Store Braeside, Towey’s Bay’t and Tackle Arnprior, and Gourley’s Store and Gas Bar, Scott & Sons Hardware and NAPA Auto Parts in Renfrew. It’s also not too late to register on the day of the event. On derby day, tickets can be purchased at Larry Rawn’s garage at the corner of Thomson Road and River Road. Weigh-ins of fish will be at the

same location. Ministry of Natural Resources regulations apply, with live release preferred. Fishing takes place on the Ottawa River from the Chenaux Dam to Chats Falls. “As usual, there will be many prizes drawn on your derby tickets from our pool of prizes donated by our local businesses,” Storie said. The adult entry draw prize is an ice fishing package consisting of a portable ice hut and a power auger. The kids entry draw prize is a 125cc ATV. The person bringing in the largest fish receives $300 and a trophy. There are also men, women, intermediate and junior categories which

win money prizes and trophies. A shanty breakfast gets underway at 6 a.m., while the 5 p.m. supper is supplied by the Horton Volunteer Firefighters Association at the Horton Community Centre. Awards are at 7 p.m. The bar will be open and a DJ will be supplying music. Should poor ice conditions result in the cancellation of the fishing portion of the derby itself, everything else, breakfast, draws, DJ, etc. will go on as planned in the Horton Community Centre. However, Storie is confident. “We have between 20 and 24 inches of ice out there now,” Storie added.

When was the last time you wanted the hockey game to end quickly so you could tune in to tennis? You need only go back to last Wednesday night for me. Like all other Canadians, I was cheering on Eugenie Bouchard to outserve Li Na and advance to the Australian Open final. It wasn’t to be.

Powering to podium Valley-based ownership gives junior A team new look Anne Lefebvre Calabogie Ski Racing Club

Sports - Calabogie Ski Racing Club’s alpine athletes kicked off the season with a bang. The U14s and U16s both had back-toback races Jan. 18 and 19 and topped off the weekend with several podiums and personal bests. The U14s travelled to Vorlage for a slalom on Saturday. The race course was long and steep but the conditions and weather were favourable. Out of 56 female racers, Lauren Campbell-Brunke of Renfrew kick-started her season by neatly carving into fourth place. Alexandra Kerr of Kemptville achieved a personal best 15th place. The U14 boys compete in a category against 66 other racers this season. Sam Duff of Pembroke emerged victorious, despite a fall on his first run. Jack Alexander (Carp) managed to squeeze into 12th place after missing a gate and hiking on his first run. Sean Swayze (Braeside) put together two solid runs to land in 19th, with Connor Allen (Manotick) close behind in 26th. Owen Barr (Carp) skied to 37th place and Tyler Lefebvre (Calabogie) came 43rd after missing a gate and hiking back up the course. Sunday saw the U14s at Camp Fortune on a GS course that was so icy it was bulletproof. The girls dominated. Sophia Tan sped to the podium, finishing third, with Lauren Campbell-Brunke

right behind in fourth. Alexa Loudiadis rounded out the top 10 in eighth place. By the time the boys skied, the ice was beginning to claim some victims. Twenty-four of the male racers crashed out on one of their runs, with Sam Duff, Jack Alexander and Aiden Keuninckx being Calabogie’s fall guys. However, all three boys rallied for excellent second runs. Sean Swayze, Connor Allen, Tyler Lefebvre and Owen Barr were a tight team, finishing 15th, 16th, 18th, and 19th. The U16s had a grand inaugural weekend. The team travelled to Mont Cascades for a slalom on Saturday, then had home hill advantage at Calabogie Peaks with a GS on Sunday. The boys race against 47 other athletes, while the girls’ division features 49 racers. Alex Duff (Pembroke) finished third in the slalom and doubled this feat with a third in the GS as well. Connor Maclean (Manotick) had a strong season start as he sped to 26th in slalom and 29th in the GS. Jenna Wissing (Kanata) also had a solid performance, coming in 28th on Saturday and 39th on Sunday. Aylen Ferguson (Carp) did not finish one run in her slalom race, but was comfortably inside the top 10 in her GS race with a clean eighth-place result. While the U14s and U16s now have a weekend to fine-tune their training, it is time for the U10s and U12s to strut their stuff.

Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@metroland.com

Sports - The Kanata Lasers hockey team has gone back to its original name under new ownership that has Valley connections. The Renfrew resident and former Arnprior Packers player Cory Greer and Nepean developer Nick Urbisci bought the former Kanata Stallions junior A hockey team from John Russo effective Jan. 3. Greer, who holds 75 per cent of the ownership shares, said he hopes the name change will help the Central Canada Hockey League team as it rebuilds. “Bringing the Kanata Lasers back, they were a successful team; never missed the playoffs. They won the Art Bogart and Fred Page cups,” said Greer, president of the franchise. “It just made sense.” The Kanata Valley Lasers were founded in 1987 and held the name until 2002, when they were sold from the Kanata Sport Club to Dynasty Flooring. The new ownership moved the team from the Jack Charron Arena to the Kanata Recreation Complex and changed the name to the Kanata Stallions. Greer said the Lasers still have a shot at the playoffs this season, but the focus will be on creating a stronger team. “We’re really rebuilding right now. We’ve committed to picking up the speed on that, making it happen,” he said. Greer, who played junior B with the Packers, has been coaching minor hockey for 17 years. His wife, Kim, is president of the Renfrew Minor Hockey Association. They live in Renfrew with their three boys, who all play minor hockey. “I love the hockey,” said Greer. “I enjoy working with kids. I really enjoy going out and watching hockey. This (purchase) was a good opportunity to be involved.” Greer filled in the players on the upcoming changes just before the holidays. “We had a team get together;

filled them in on what the plans are and they seemed to be very excited about it,” he said. “Our plan is to have a brand new start to the franchise, bring it back to one of the most successful and respected franchises in the CCHL.” Lou Nistico, general manager of the Lasers, said he thinks the name change was a good call. “I think it’s great going back to the old name; there’s a lot of history there,” he said. “I think it’s important to go back to the roots.” The team will continue playing in their Stallions’ jerseys until they can be replaced – the start of the next season at the latest – and the Lasers logo is being redesigned, said Greer. John Hill, who spent the past year as general manager of Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League champion (junior B) Ottawa Junior Canadians, and GM of the Arnprior Packers before that, has been hired as the director of hockey operations. Arnprior businessman Corey Foster will remain the Lasers’ head coach, but other changes will be coming down the line, said Greer, although he wouldn’t comment about what they might be. Another Arnprior resident, Dustin Dorken, is an assistant coach with the team. “In the big picture, we’ve got to

turn this team around,” Greer said. “I’m impressed with the team. We have a lot of the right players,” he added. “We want this to be a place that kids want

The Renfrew Curling Rink

Renfrew ladies compete at provincial ’spiel Andy Sklepowicz Behind the Glass

River, Renfrew met points leader Pembroke and came home with a 3-and-1 record, moving them into contention. The team of Rob Warren, Don Rouble, Jim Berg, and George Burton used steals of four to handily win both of their games. The Gary Smith rink with Dave Eady, Ed Hanson and Bernie Leclaire were up two in the eighth without hammer, but unfortunately, could not make the key shots and gave up three for a loss. They won their second game, also up two in the eighth, but with hammer, and this time

sealed the win. Congratulations to the winners of the Red Anderson trophy at 9-0, Rob Warren, Tony Lapiennes, Jack Ledger and Ted Digel and to the runners-up, both at 7-2, Brian Yolkowskie, Tom Gray, Alex Baillon and Bill Neff and the team of Dave Eady, Burt Virgin, Alain Pauze and Rick McCallum. This weekend we will have the best club curling on show as both ladies and men’s teams take to the ice for the club championships. Come out and cheer your favourites on and enjoy our hospitality.

Two Renfrew wrestlers fare well in provincials Renfrew Amateur Wrestling Club

Sports - Two local men competed in the junior provincials this past weekend in Kingston. The age group is 18-19, meaning our high school men competed against first-year university competition where these men received much higher levels of training and support for the sport. But this did not slow down our local competitors. Jesse Wilson finished the

Saturday matches in third place. He lost only to two of last year’s Canadian champions, one who captured gold at the Canada Summer Games and the other at the Canadian nationals. Jake Cartman, in one of the largest weight divisions, came up against some very tough competition but demonstrated he was in the game. Cartman won his first match by superiority with a score of 10-0. Jake finished just off the podium, but lacked the opportunity for tough

training that his other opponents had. If Jake had the same opportunity as the university men had, I feel strongly that the results would have been reversed and Jake would have definitely been at the top of the podium. Both men remained for a Sunday tournament (Queen’s University Open) where they competed against senior men, who will later compete for spots on the Canadian Olympic team. This took courage to compete against such strong and sea-

soned opponents who regularly practise a minimum of six times per week and some who practise 18 or more times per week. Both Jake and Jesse finished in fourth spot. Jake narrowly missed the podium as he lost his final match by one takedown. These men will return to the practice mat to prepare for their school regional championships (EOSSAA) where they will need to finish in the top two positions to advance to the Ontario high school championships.

Yvonne Sklepowicz, Christine Johnson (playing for regular vice Laurie Millar), Gail Keyes and Anne Windle, playing as a team for the first time, lost their first hard-fought game to the Wright rink from Weston. They came back with a win in their second game after being down two without hammer in

the eighth to steal a win over the Clark team from the Dixie CC from Mississauga. The team struggled in the third game, being eliminated by the Trevail team from the Chinguacousy CC of Brampton. The second Renfrew squad of veterans Barb Westgarth, Shelley Jamieson, Stephanie Langlois and Barb Roy mirrored their compatriots, losing to the Koeler rink from the St. George’s CC in Toronto, then defeating the Wilson team from Brampton and dropping their final game to the Nicholas rink from Campbellford.

Discover the fun, challenge of duplicate bridge Carol Sulpher

Community - Duplicate bridge is a great game that provides social interaction, mental exercise, and just plain fun. A group of interested individuals is making plans for the establishment of a duplicate bridge program for the residents of Renfrew and area. Therefore, a warm invitation is extended to the many fine contract bridge players who play in small groups on a regular basis or not so regular basis in the kitchens and drawing rooms of homes in the area. Why not consider joining in the fun, and expanding your experience of the

stimulating game of bridge? A friendly, relaxed environment is promised. It is hoped that the following information will help you form an affirmative response to the invitation to join:

Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve only played social bridge. How will I adjust to duplicate? Except for a few differences in scoring, it is much like your regular game. Our club organizers are very friendly and helpful, and will guide you through.

When and where will the game take place? The game will take place on Wednesday afternoons, beginning Wednesday, Feb. 5. It will be held at Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre with each session starting promptly at 1 p.m., and over by 4 p.m. Be sure to arrive at least 10 minutes early in order to register and get settled in. (Please note there will be no duplicate bridge on

So what makes duplicate bridge different? The setup of a duplicate game gives you the opportunity to play against a wide variety of pairs -- from seasoned players to bare beginners -and to compare your bidding and play with theirs. Your mistakes (and your triumphs) will be clearer because youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see how several other players bid and played the same cards

you held. And because you have the chance to earn a top score on every hand (even if you hold a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yarboroughâ&#x20AC;? with no honour cards), youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be paying full attention to every trick! How much does it cost to play? An afternoon of bridge will cost each person $5. This will help defray the costs of the heat, lights, refreshments and other administrative purchases required. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a partner, but I would like to play. What should I do? Bridge is a partnership game, but if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a partner, the organizers will usually be able to find a partner for you. Just call someone from the contact list below in advance, or arrive a half

everyone who is interested in trying their hand at duplicate bridge and who is available on Wednesday afternoons. Playing bridge truly provides â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;aerobics for the mind!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; If you would like more information about playing in this club, please contact Ruth Grant at 613-432-8235, or Jeannie Yagminas at 613-4325494 or Carol or David Sulpher at 613-432-5060. We hope you will come out and try your hand at this fun game. We know that duplicate bridge will be new to many players. The organizers promise to provide a warm nurturing environment, with plenty of gentle coaching to ensure a positive experience for all. Hope to see you on Wednesday, Feb. 5 at 1 p.m. at the MaTe-Way Activity Centre!

hour before start of the game. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be worried about your skill level, bridge players love to help â&#x20AC;&#x153;newbiesâ&#x20AC;? get into the game. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve played duplicate before, but didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like it because some of the players were far too intense. In any game or sport, it is not uncommon to meet the odd competitive player who may get a little carried away at times. However, we are a warm, welcoming, friendly club. Good manners are expected of all players in our club. As such, we will have a zero tolerance policy toward any behaviour that makes others feel uncomfortable.

Community - Ontario Command of The Royal Canadian Legion is proud to announce the publishing of a Military Service Recognition Book to help identify and recognize many of our veterans within the Province of Ontario who have served their country so well during times of conflict and peace. This initiative was introduced and approved at our most recent provincial convention held in Kingston in May 2013, and was introduced and had its official launch during Legion Week 2013. There will be 15,000 copies printed and supplied to participating branches in Ontario Command free of charge for local distribution by September 2014. Proceeds raised from this project will be used to assist branches financially through various programs initiated by Ontario Command. These books are not to be sold, but rather are to be distributed as complimentary promotional copies. The Military Service Recognition Book will be published annually for at least the next three years, but due to space limitations, we may not be able to publish all submitted stories and histories. If all submissions are not able to be printed in our first book, they will be printed in a priority fashion in future editions. I hope this information and the accompanying submission form and samples are of assistance to you in the preparation of your histories and stories.

A submission form can be picked up at the Legion Office or downloaded from www.on.legion.ca website. The veterans can fill in the required information themselves or we will be more than willing to assist them in this endeavour.

Mary Cook’s Memories through the deep snow. I thought, back then, that the sleigh bells made the most beautiful sounds in the whole world. I especially liked them at night, driving in our long lane, or coming across the snow-covered 20-acre field. Often they would lull me to sleep, leaning against Father’s shoulder, and I would feel the utmost contentment and happiness. And so sleigh bells headed my list. Smelling freshly baked bread when I walked in the house after coming from school simply had to go on my list too. And seeing the high, fat loaves, lined up on the bake table, and knowing I would be able to claim the outside crust off at least one of them, caused my mouth to water, as I printed homemade bread on my list. And crawling into beds that had been made up with fresh sheets taken off the clothes line that day gave me special joy and a great feeling of happiness. I would fall asleep with my nose crushed into the pillow to get the most benefit of the new smell, and wrap the sheet tight around my neck. And the scent would stay with me until my eyes heavily closed. The next day, the wonderful smell of freshness would be gone, but that night I would have nestled into a sweet happiness of sheer joy.

Lifestyle - It was unusual for Miss Crosby to break with routine. But that Friday the snow was coming down so heavily, we couldn’t see the barns when we got up in the morning, and that had a lot to do with her changing our usual afternoon school day work. Parents would be coming with sleighs and cutters to take us home, which in itself was unusual. The weather had to be pretty fierce to warrant a ride to or from the Northcote School! And so Miss Crosby announced after recess, we all could put our books away, keeping out only our grammar notebooks. We had at least an hour to put in. Miss Crosby said, to cheer us up on that cold and blustery Friday, we were to write (or in my case, print) all the things we could think of that made us happy. I gathered seeing bad Marguirite falling flat on her face was not exactly what Miss Crosby had in mind. She also said we were to take our grammar books home to finish up our lists as homework. I could see the senior pupils writing with great speed, whereas it took me forever to print my very first line in my scribbler. I had absolutely no trouble coming up with the very first thing that made me happy on a winter’s day, especially on that particular Friday. Father would be coming with the flat-bottom sleigh, I would be sitting in the very front with him, wrapped in the fur blanket he would toss in before leaving the barns. And I would be listening to the sleigh bells hanging around the necks of King and Queen, as they plop-plopped

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was the most intense writing Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever done for a book, with such a complex plot, but some of the most satisfying,â&#x20AC;? says Hall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was pleased with it.â&#x20AC;? As with all of his recent murder mysteries, Hall verifies the reality of activities (e.g., interrogation styles and setting up a sting) in his books with two family members who are retired from lengthy police careers. This time, he also used his wife Joyce, a retired registered nurse, and his family doctor, on whom one character is based, to scrutinize material regarding medical diagnosis and surgery. Hallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s long list of books includes biographies of several entertainers, including TV bios of Paul Anka, Englebert Humperdinck and Gordon Lightfoot, and print versions of Patsy Cline and The Mamas & The Papas. The latest of his 21 books, in order, are Deadly Premiums; Murder at Madison Lake; Speak Up! Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Murder; Murder & The Minden Star; The $cam Murder; The Chilian Murder(s); and Britonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pride. To learn more about his books, check out www.publishamerica.ca or www.amazon.com. Hall was the adopted son of Phil Hall and Mary Jane Edmunds, who worked as a linotype operator at The Renfrew Mercury. Hall moved to the Toronto area in 1945.

Lifestyle - Viatical life settlements became very poplar in the 1970s and â&#x20AC;&#x2122;80s, when AIDS was decimating the gay community and patients were desperate for money to pay for treatment or new drugs. They are basically the sale of an existing life insurance policy to a third party for more than the cash-surrender value. Author Doug Hall, who grew up in Renfrew in the 1940s, had never heard of these settlements until his grandson Adam read a New York Times newspaper article about the settlements and how they grew into a $12 billion industry. Adam suggested it was a potential plot line, and thus was born Hallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 21st book, Deadly Premiums. Now 84 years old, Hall says he still has plenty of energy to write, despite retiring from fulltime journalism in the 1990s. And with a unique plot line, why not be energetic about his newest book. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To the best of my knowledge, there has never been a murder mystery with his theme,â&#x20AC;? says Hall, from his home in Pickering, Ont.. His previous book, Murder at Lake Madison, was fashioned after the Town of Renfrew and some local characters following his Renfrew Collegiate Institute student days in the 1940s, when heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d take the train in from Haley Station weekday mornings, and return in the evening by rail. This time thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no hint of Renfrew in the story. But, as with several of his recent books, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mayhem, mystery and murder in the air. The mayhem starts with Adam Mason, who lives in the fictitious Ontario town of Laurentian City, when an MRI reveals a ghostly white orb on his left frontal lobe. Not only might the married Mason die within six months, but his bank account is empty and he only receives a small monthly disability pension. However, he finds a ray of hope when his family doctor puts him in touch with an insurance agent who sells viatical settlements. By changing the beneficiary of his $500,000 life-insurance policy from his wife to the insurance company that sells him the viatical, Mason receives an immediate payout of $300,000. The company will realize its $500,000 upon his death. In selling the policy, the agent believes Mason will live just a few months. But following surgery, Mason is given a clean bill of health. Life is also getting complicated, as the investor, who used laundered money to finance the viatical settlement, contacts a hit man to ensure that Masonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life ends. The plot thickens when police detectives enter the picture.

New Ice Program at Renfrew Collegiate Taylor Virgin Raider Review

Lifestyle - Renfrew Collegiate Institute’s new Ice Program will be offered again to Grade 9 students at RCI this September after a successful run this semester. Nine female and nine males students enrolled in the new program last winter when selecting their courses for this year. The Ice Program was created by the RCI administration team and the collaboration of teacher Mr.

Scott Buffam, who also teaches the course. The class focuses on a variety of ice sports such as sledge hockey, figure skating, hockey, and ringette, but ice experience is not a prerequisite. Learning the new ice skills benefited everyone with no importance on what background they had with sports. “It was definitely a great experience, no matter how much experience you have with ice sports,” says Ryan Pettigrew “We created the class because when students

have a passion for something they work harder towards achievements,” Buffam explains. “The class combines a gym and business class to give students the required gym and compulsory credit. The Ice Program has been a good experience for me. The best part was learning to play sledge hockey.” Abby Delarge says. “I wish I had the chance to do it again next year.” The ice events were held at Ma-Te-Way and much of the program’s success

can be contributed to the great help from community volunteers. “We appreciate the community involvement. Representatives from minor hockey, the ringette association, the figure skating club, and sledge hockey graciously donated time to help with instruction,” says Buffam. “We have greatly benefited from the partnership that exists between the school and the town which enabled us to secure ice time and offer the program at no extra cost to the students.”

OFAH summer camp reaches more kids Lifestyle - Wow, this cold weather may be keeping families indoors, but the OFAH has a major announcement that will be sure to warm them up and encourage them to Get Outdoors. By popular demand, the OFAH is proud to announce that the 2014 Get Outdoors Summer Leadership Camp will be including a fourth action-packed camp to a program that has quickly become a province-wide success. “In the past five years, this one-ofa-kind fishing and hunting summer camp has filled up in just 19 minutes at the start of registration,” said Bill

Blackwell, OFAH president. “With the overwhelming response to this summer camp, and the dedication of its volunteers, the board of directors saw a great opportunity to add a fourth camp to get more youth outdoors, and forever shape their leadership skills and interest in conservation.” Blackwell expressed that this camp is successful because of the generosity of the volunteers who invest their family vacation time in Huntsville to provide a program that draws youth from across the province. Registration for the Get Outdoors

Summer Leadership Camp will start March 25 at 10 a.m. The March issue of the Ontario OUT OF DOORS magazine will provide the listing of summer camp dates. Families will also be drawn towards the Get Outdoors Facebook page and YouTube to view the brand new summer camp video featuring the high energy activities each camper experiences such as shooting compound bows and .22 rifles, fishing for bass and walleye, and riding ATVs donated last year by Canadian Tire.

Man charged with sexual assault Explosion, fire damage downtown Arnprior restaurant John Carter john.carter@metroland.com

News – One man is injured and a property has sustained fire and structural damage as a result of an explosion and fire Jan. 19 in downtown Arnprior. Moe’s Pita and Pizzeria owner Moe Fakih was taken to Arnprior hospital for treatment of burns caused by an explosion at his Madawaska Street restaurant. An Ontario Fire Marshal office investigator took over the scene Tuesday and will conduct a full investigation into the cause of the fire. A statement released by Arnprior fire chief John Okum reports that the Arnprior volunteer fire department PHOTO BY DEREK DUNN was called shortly after 7 p.m. Sunday Despite the wind and snow, fire crews managed to to respond to reports of an explosion bring the situation under control at the Madawaska and smoke in a building on Madawas- Boulevard restaurant. ka Street near Bell Street. As local police, fire and paramedic emergency responders arrived on scene, they found Fakih outside with burns to his face and hands. He was treated by Renfrew County paramedics and taken to the Arnprior & District Memorial Hospital, where he remained overnight. The firefighters found smoke was coming from the three-storey building, which contains Moe’s Place on the main level and apartments on the upper level. Arnprior firefighters quickly assembled several of its fire apparatuses and deployed fire crews into the structure. A fire located in the basement was extinguished and the building was searched to confirm everyone in the apartments had safely evacuated. The fire department determined that the owner had returned to his restaurant, which had closed at 7 p.m., to retrieve personal belongings and was inside the building when the explosion occurred. He was able to escape the restaurant, call 9-1-1 and notify the apartment’s tenants, who had also been alerted by the sound of the explosion. Okum noted that the building’s gas and electrical services have been “isolated” and a preliminary investigation was conducted to assess the damage. The building sustained fire damage in the basement and smoke damage in the other two floors. Because of the explosion, an engineer will be needed to determine if the building is structurally compromised. The Ontario Fire Marshal was alerted, a requirement when there are injuries and reports of an explosion.

News - The Renfrew detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) conducted an investigation after receiving a complaint of inappropriate touching and as a result a massage therapist is facing several charges of sexual assault.

POLICE OPP supports program to find lost or missing children

Connected to your community

Ontario Provincial Police

Community - When a child goes missing, every second counts. A current photo is sometimes the most important tool to help quickly and safely locate a child. Too often, valuable time is lost when parents are gathering information and photos of their child to provide to police. A new free App called Find Me ID, allows parents to

quickly disseminate their child’s pertinent information in the event of an emergency to their local law enforcement agency or other emergency contacts. The App was developed by the Canadian Centre for Child Protection. It will allow parents to store current photographs and information about their child, and will automatically prompt parents to update that information from data that is readily

“As a public safety organization, we know that acting quickly when a child is missing is of paramount importance to the successful recovery of the child,” says Sgt. Shelly Tuck of Forensic Identification Support Services. “The OPP is fully supportive of the use of this social media tool that will assist law enforcement agencies and first responders to locate and return children in a timely manner.”

available on their smartphone. The information from Find Me ID can be transferred quickly through electronic means such as cell phones or computers, to those who need it most when a child goes missing or is lost. The Ontario Provincial Police is supporting this important initiative to enhance safety and help reduce the time it takes to get information about missing children to police.

Make your own unique felt bag at the Mississippi Textile Museum Michael Rikley-Lancaster Mississippi Valley Textile Museum

Lifestyle - If you have worked with felt before and want to build on skills at the intermediate or advanced level, join artist Andrea Graham at the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum on March 15 and 16 for the workshop Bags with 3D Elements. In this two-day workshop students will use a flat resist technique to create a functional and fashionable bag that incorporates 3D elements

such as fins, loops, spikes and fibre surface details on either the flap or the front of the bag. Options for handles will be discussed, and either a felted rope handle or grommets and rings will finish off the bag. Andrea exhibits, teaches and lectures internationally and is recognized for her technical skill and innovation. Her work is currently featured at the Textile Museum in the exhibit â&#x20AC;&#x153;Transformations.â&#x20AC;? The workshop will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, March 15 and Sunday, March 16 in

the museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s multipurpose room, and participants are asked to bring a lunch. The cost is $160 to pre-register, plus $30 for materials the day of the workshop. There is a maximum of 10 students, and to secure a spot you must register by Feb. 28. You can call the museum at 613 256-3754 ext. 7 or drop by the museum in Almonte.
