Todd Nicholson helps township celebrate Festival of Outdoor Rinks SHERRY HAAIMA sherry.haaima@metroland.com

The smile said it all. Twenty-month-old Freija Thomas was among those in attendance at Saturday’s sledge hockey demonstration at Horton’s outdoor rink. Born with spina bifida, Freija has partial paralysis and uses braces for mobility. This, however, doesn’t slow her down, says mom Alana Thomas, of Westmeath, who was also joined by her son, three-year-old Hudson Thomas and nephew Brent Labre, 9. Freija watched patiently as her cousin and brother got strapped into the sledges and set off. Was she ready, asked her mom? A huge smile and excited nod followed. “She’s always going,” said Alana. “She loves hockey, her brother loves hockey. This is great.” Dunrobin’s Todd Nicholson, with support from Community Living’s sledge hockey team, the Ice Pickers, led the demonstration. Nicholson has taken on almost every role he possibly could in the sledge hockey world — Olympian, gold medallist, team captain, public speaker, advocate, Paralympic committee athlete’s council chair, flag bearer, Own the Podium representative, and was recently named as Canada’s chef de mission for the 2018 Paralympic Games in Py-

Renfrew woman dies following house fire on Mary DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@metroland.com

The elderly Renfrew woman caught in a house fire late last week has succumbed to injuries. Agnes (Luckovitch) Lepine, 88, was pulled from her burning house on Mary Avenue by OPP officers on Friday, Feb. 10, with serious burns. Rushed to the General Hospital in Ottawa, she died the following day. A crew of 10 firefighters and one volunteer arrived on scene at the home, near Ma-Te-Way Park, about 11 a.m. There was little in the way of fire and smoke at that time. The façade picture window blew out, likely when OPP let in more oxygen when opening the door. Chief Guy Longtin said the office of the fire marshal has taken over since the incident involved serious injury. They have yet to determine a cause, though it will be deemed “accidental”

The victim was wife to the late Earl Lepine, mother of Teri Leech (Keith), Golden Lake, Lynda Kelly, Napanee, Cathy Zavitske (Bob), Renfrew. She was grandmother to Chantelle (Dave) Cartman, Chris Levesque (Cassie), Chyvaun Pettit, Jordan (Julien) Bouchard-Bourdeau, Shannon Kelly (Cody), Dana (Tyler) Stewart, Dylan Zavitske, and greatgrandmother of Jondavid, Tierney, Tyson, Austin, Corisa, Lily, Draden & Kroix. AGNES LEPINE Also, Lepine was sister to Lucy, Margaret, Gertrude, according to fire Captain Ambrose, Phillip, Felix and Peter Whalen. He believes Catherine. She is predeceased it could be electrical related. It isn’t clear in which room the fire started, or if the home will need to be razed. “Let’s just say there is heavy fire damage inside,” Longtin said. It was insured. Firefighters brought the situation under control quickly, and were back at the station by 2 p.m. No one else was injured.

Driver, passenger escape frigid water in Calabogie Lake DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@metroland.com

A close call in Calabogie nearly added two more snowmobile fatalities to the spike seen in recent weeks. Six recent snow-machine deaths have led the OPP and Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC) to strongly urge snowmobilers to stop taking unnecessary risks while riding. As of Feb. 8, there have been 13 deaths across the province this year compared to last year’s (less snowy) eight. OPP issued a press release linking the fatalities to riding on unsafe ice, speeding, loss of control, alcohol use and driver inattention. Driver behaviours, in other words, continue to cause otherwise preventable snowmobile deaths, say police. Unsafe ice played a role on Calabogie Lake, not far from Calabogie Peaks ski resort. A sled went through the ice at Barrett’s Chute, off Luker’s Lane. No one noticed until Monday, Feb. 6, when a man with binoculars told police he saw helmets and gloves on the ice, near a hole in the ice large enough for a snowmobile to fit through. That day the local fire department responded, but they have no ice rescue equipment. The next day at least six OPP vehicles arrived on scene. A drone was

Campaign underway to help Quebec family after house fire

Ricky Lepack and Marthe Drolet and their five children, shown here in happier times on a family vacation, were left homeless when the house on Church Road burned, said Margaret Lepack.

SHERRY HAAIMA sherry.haaima@metroland.com

A Renfrew woman is asking her community to support fundraising efforts for her brother and his family, who lost their home and belongings in a house fire in the Vinton area of Litchfield, Que., on Feb. 7. Ricky Lepack and Marthe Drolet and their five children were left homeless when the house on Church Road burned, said Margaret Lepack. Her two grown sons were also living with the couple, one of whom worked for Ricky Lepack at his hauling business. "They lost everything," said the sister. "It's so sad. He has two special needs children." The family, who did have insurance, is staying at a motel for the time being, while suitable accommodations are found. It isn't the easiest task to find a home and property that will house such a large family and the business. This is a chance to help out a family who would do the same for others in their situation, says Margaret Lepack. "They'd be the first to help someone else out," she said. "Why not give back to them now?" The situation is further complicated by the fact that the couple's two youngest children are special needs and require regular visits to CHEO. Margaret Lepack is helping to organize a fundraising event that will take place on Saturday, March 4, at Spruce Homes in Fort Colounge. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. and silent auction items will be available for viewing at that time. Music by Phil Denault gets underway at 8 p.m. A GoFundMe account has also been set up.

Police, business owners warn of dangers of Morning Glory seeds SHERRY HAAIMA sherry.haaima@metroland.com

Police and business owners in the Town of Renfrew are warning parents to be on the lookout for youth using Morning Glory seeds to get high. Police were contacted by the owners of Scott and Sons Hardware Ltd. "The merchant noticed young people recently buying several packages of Morning Glory seeds," said Renfrew OPP. After searching online and learning

that ingesting the seeds can cause hallucinations and people experience a high after eating them or using them to making tea, he contacted police. "Ingesting these seeds can cause considerable nausea and hallucinations." OPP Const. Janice Sawbridge said the use of the seeds hasn't been an issue at the local detachment, however neighbouring Perth and Lanark police forces dealt with a similar situation in the past couple of years. "They were dealing with kids who were high as a result of ingesting the

seeds," she said. Police reached out with the news to make parents and school staff aware. "Mainly we want to educate parents and grandparents or others who may have noticed some seed packages in the garbage recently and didn't realize what they are for," said Sawbridge. Along with potential nausea, the hallucinations caused by ingesting the seeds can be hazardous. "Sometimes people hallucinating put themselves in dangerous situations," she said. "Sometimes people do things under the influence of drugs

that they wouldn't normally do." Parents should keep their eyes and the communication lines open, police say. "Try to stay up on current trends and have open conversations with your child," said Sawbridge. There are a number of resources for parents who need information or advice on how to deal with youth who might be experimenting with drugs, including the Parents' Lifeline of Eastern Ontario (PLEO) at pleo.on.ca or 1-855-775-7005. In a Facebook post, Scott and Sons

Hardware Ltd. notified the public of the move. "As you all know, this week we took a stand and removed Morning Glory seeds from our seed rack. We found out that these packs of seeds contain LSD form of makeup and are dangerous to anyone that is not using them for the purpose that they were sold for," said the post. "These packs of seeds were being purchased by the young for other purposes, and we feel we can rest a lot easier knowing we did our part to keep our kids healthy and happy."

Leave Redmen to history

Redmen is just a word, so why fight to keep it? Redmen is just a word, so why fight to drop it? One thing everyone on both sides of the Arnprior District High School name changing debate should acknowledge is that words do, in fact, matter. It is not just a word. And neither will the next name. Words have and give meaning. That’s why place names from Renfrew to Almonte should be changed. Squaw Point Road in Calabogie is no more. Indian River near Almonte should be next. Smiths Falls high school stopped using Redmen several years ago. Were all these many names (that affect fewer people than a high school) systematically phased out over recent years, it would have made the Arnprior situation easier to accept. Come September the Redmen name will no longer be, replaced by one voted on by students and staff alike. That much is certain. The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada has determined names like Redmen and similar others to be offensive. The federal and provincial governments have accepted it and are taking action. All Ontario school boards have been asked to follow suit. The question is how we, as small town residents, should respond. Firstly, it is not simply the outside world imposing its liberal will. Plenty of local people, including principal Tom Havey who attended the school as a student - as did his father and grandfather - believe the time is long

overdue. Smiths Falls left Redmen behind in 2005. Other towns across Canada with the Redman name did so decades before that. Secondly, we can no longer ignore the hurt words impose on others. Some conservatives will always dismiss the wronged as being petty or “too sensitive”. But they will demand no one use the term Happy Holidays. That could be interpreted as being “too sensitive”. However, it would be wrong to do so. No one can deny another their feelings. If they are offended, they alone get to say so. That applies to those on the left and right. And it is used by both sides, too. Thirdly, and perhaps most importantly, some are choosing to embrace a future identity while others hold on to a past one. It is possible to do both without contradiction. Just as it is possible to say Redmen was not intended - largely by white people - to offend, but that is was received - by indigenous people - as offensive. There are no racists here. There is no saying that students over the last 50 years or more who associated the name exclusively with the school are somehow bigots. They were not. It is simply a matter of not being exposed and educated. Indigenous people were silenced during those decades. The weight of oppression so heavy it rendered them mute. That is no longer the case. Indigenous people are regaining strength. They are asserting their rights. Hearing and accepting that fact is how we show the respect they deserve.

Electoral reform: The future of democracy is at stake To the editor:

The Liberal Party election platform of 2015 wrote: “We will make every vote count. We are committed to ensuring that 2015 will be the last federal election conducted under the first-past-the-post voting system.” That was a consequential promise to overturn an institution that has lasted since the 12th century and through all of Canadian history. Therefore the all-party electoral reform parliamentary committee is currently considering new voting systems and processes for Canada. Early in October at St. Joseph’s High School, a Fair Vote Canada representative by the name of Nor-

man Hart explained the various types of electoral systems that Canada could transition towards, from mixed-member proportional systems to open-list proportional systems to closed-list proportional systems to the alternative ranked ballot to the singletransferable vote system. Almost 30 citizens, including the former Liberal candidate Jeff Lehoux and the former Green candidate, myself, were present. Norman Hart expressed his opinion that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has decided that a transition to the alternative ranked ballot system is politically untenable and that the Liberal government is more likely to push through a different electoral system. Unfortunately, further town halls

and mainstream education for Renfrew County on the matter of electoral reform are seemingly not on the horizon. Nor are Canadians as a whole necessarily engaged on how the future of our democracy is at stake. In September an IPSOS poll found that only 19 per cent of Canadians were aware that the electoral reform committee had started its consultation, and only three per cent of Canadians were “very closely” following. The problem with politics is that when the many do not understand how they are affected by institutions made by the few, the few will be the ones who figure out how to advance their own interests at the expense of the many.

Parties have to their credit compromised with one another in establishing a committee where no party has a majority with which to push through its own preferred reform proposal. Whatever proposals are recommended by the committee will necessarily have the support of more than one party. However, party leaders could still manipulate the votes of members on the committee. In the coming months before and after the committee’s December report to the government on electoral reform recommendations, much misinformation should be expected from the most powerful political interests. They will trumpet over and over their call for a national referendum, where EDITORIAL: Managing Editor: Theresa Fritz, 613-221-6225 theresa.fritz@metroland.com NEWS EDITOR: Sherry Haaima sherry.haaima@metroland.com 613-432-3655 x42 REPORTER: Tiffany Lepack tlepack@metroland.com 613-432-3655 x44 THE DEADLINE FOR EDITORIAL SUBMISSIONS IS FRIDAY AT 5:00PM

they would have an easier time blowing hot air to confuse the public. Instead of calling a national referendum, pressure should instead be put upon the governing Liberals to consult the public through a mass deliberative household survey that asks questions about citizens’ values in constituency and ballot types. This December when the electoral reform committee proposes its recommendations on a new electoral system for Canada, millions of Canadians should be paying attention to understand how the future of democracy is at stake.

The beaver that lives in trees I think it safe to say that everyone knows that beavers live in water, leaving its safety only to forage on land or to sleep inside a lodge. While they eat both aquatic and terrestrial herbaceous plants, through much of the year, especially in winter, much of their diet consists of the bark and twigs of trees, especially poplar. Beavers aren’t alone in their fondness for poplar. In the rodent group, there resides another species that

also eats bark, twigs, and opening leaves of poplar. Porcupines eat woody material and, like beavers, possess a long intestinal pouch full of bacteria to digest cellulose. Unlike beavers, however, porcupines don’t cut down trees to access meals. They climb trees using their impressive climbing gear: huge claws and roughskinned feet. Right now is a good time to see porcupines, for they will sleep in trees during the day (their dark

bodies soaking up solar energy), with the lack of leaves making them easy to spot. Other times they sleep in dens situated in rock caverns or hollow trees, venturing out to forage at night. On cold days they conserve energy by lowering their body temperature by 5 degrees C. Apart from starvation and falling out of trees, Porcupines face another challenge. Some are shot by humans because they damage trees; others die when they cross highways or stop to glean salt from the asphalt. Porcupines are slow moving animals built for climbing, not running, and thus are prone to being hit by cars. They need not run from predators because they own a powerful defence: modified hairs known as quills. Around 30,000 quills adorn a porcupine’s body, with its lower back and tail particularly well endowed. Contrary to popular belief, porcupines cannot throw quills. An attacker must make contact with them before they get dislodged. When confronted, a porcupine turns its back to an attacker and swings its tail back and forth. Once embedded, overlapping scales allow quills to work their way through flesh when muscles contract and expand. Quills function just like plastic cable zip ties, allowing one-way movement only, which is why they’re so

hard to remove from dogs that foolishly attack a porcupine. Quills have another unusual feature. They have a greasy coating that contains antibiotics. This coating might prevent porcupines from getting infections when they impale themselves with their own weaponry after falling out of a tree, which apparently isn’t rare. It’s also possible that they are meant to hurt, not kill, attackers. Some predators teach their offspring how to hunt; by giving an attacker a memorable lesson, it might pass on its painfully attained knowledge to its young. This wouldn’t apply to fishers, however, for they regularly eat porcupines. They kill them by eventually flipping them over onto their back and attacking their quillless belly. Porcupine quills have another unusual feature. Their bases are white and they contain fluorescent compounds — features that make them highly visible at night. Just like the white stripes on a skunk, Porcupine quills provide visual warning. Perhaps this column’s title might have been: “The Skunk That Lives in Trees!” The Nature email is mruntz@start.ca

St. Brigid of Ireland to be honoured at Medieval Feast ROSE ANN MACLAREN

Who was St Brigid? Normally when we talk about Ireland we tend to think of St. Patrick, but there were other heavyweight Christians who had a great effect on that country. One of these people was St. Brigid, who surprisingly had considerable contact with St. Patrick, for they lived in the same area of Ireland in the same time frame. Like Patrick, she had a lot of contact with the Druids. Bridget was born at Faughart, near Newry Co. Down to a Druid named Dubhtach and his bondwoman. After Brigid was born, her mother was sold to a chieftain in Connaught and Brigid was sent to be raised and educated by the Druids. Brigid grew into a beautiful woman and when she was old enough she returned to her father’s house as a semi-slave. Living at the time of St. Patrick, she was inspired to convert to Christianity. This angered her father. But Brigid was so generous in giving his wealth away to the poor. He finally conceded after she gave away his most precious jewel encrusted sword to a leper. With St Patrick’s inspiration she converted to Christianity and decided to serve her life looking after the poor and the sick in the name of God. Some time later, to avoid a suit with the King of Leinster, son of the im-

portant abottess Darerca, sister of St. Patrick, she studied under Mel (St Patrick), the Bishop of Ardagh. It’s possible she entered religious life after losing the sight in one eye. Some stories hold that she put her own eye out rather than enter the unwelcome marriage, and once the marriage was called off, Celtic tradition would not allow one to marry somebody disfigured, she put it back in and was miraculously healed. Mel (St. Patrick) went on to first ordain Bridget as a priest and then later as a bishop, an unusual situation as bishops were normally men. This is true even to this day. The McNab and District Celtic Heritage Society is holding the fourth annual Medieval Feast and this year will honour St. Brigid of Ireland. Come on out and meet St. Brigid and St. Patrick and learn more about this interesting saint. What is written here hardly “scratches the surface” of the fascinating stories about her. This feast will be held at the Renfrew Legion on Saturday, Feb. 25 with cocktails at 5:30 p.m., meal at 6:30 p.m. Enjoy the tastes of medieval Ireland and enjoy medieval entertainment.

Women’s Sexual Assault Centre of Renfrew County responds to report To the editor:

Re: The Globe and Mail’s Unfounded: Why police dismiss 1 in 5 sexual assault claims as baseless. A 20-month Globe and Mail investigation into police-reported sexual assault allegations has revealed how police services across Ontario record some sexual assault complaints as “unfounded” − a formal police classification that means “a crime was neither attempted, nor occurred.” Unfounded rates remain high in many Ontario regions. Inconsistencies in unfounded rates for sexual assault also emerged: the London, Ontario police service dropped 30 per cent of sexual-assault allegations as unfounded between 2010 and 2014, for example, whereas Windsor and Toronto saw just three and seven per cent, respectively. Here in Renfrew County, the unfounded rate is 35 per cent. What accounts for these inconsistencies? Unfounding often occurred, the Globe and Mail found, when a sexual assault complaint entailed just a short interview between the victim and police, and no subsequent investigation. Previous research concluded what survivor-victims and their advo-

cates most feared: that, in fact, “complainants who do not conform to stereotypes about the perfect victim were winding up with cases deemed unfounded at a disproportionate rate.” The Women’s Sexual Assault Centre of Renfrew County commends the Globe and Mail investigation: many of our experiences as advocates and crisis workers supporting survivors of sexual assault align with these findings. Simply too many sexual assaults are reported and do not result in charges. And simply too many assaults categorized as unfounded draw on sexual violence misconceptions, which construct survivors as unreliable or untruthful. On the contrary, when sexual assault allegations are dismissed with such frequency “it is a sign of deeper flaws in the investigative process: inadequate training for police; dated interviewing techniques that do not take into account the effect that trauma can have on memory; and the persistence of rape myths among lawenforcement officials.” The Women’s Sexual Assault Centre notes that false allegations of sexual assault are not a common social problem. What is a common social problem

is that survivors-victims are not believed or supported when they share their experiences. For example: Most reports of sexual assault do not lead to charges, let alone convictions. Out of every 1,000 sexual assaults in Canada, it’s estimated that 997 assailants walk free: 33 are reported to the police, just 29 are recorded as a crime; 12 see charges laid; 6 are prosecuted and just three lead to conviction. The majority of sexual assault offenders are in fact known to the victim in some way. Acquaintances, friends and dates are more likely to use verbal pressure, negative consequences, threats to relationships or victimblaming rhetoric (i.e. “You know you wanted this”; “If you tell about what happened here, you will be in trouble”) during episodes of sexual coercion. This inevitably impacts upon a victim’s ability to resist or report what happened – or in many cases, even name it as violence. Sexual cases most often scrutinize survivor-victims, their actions, or reputability as witnesses, as opposed to the alleged offender, who is not required to testify. Social misconceptions (“myths”)

concerning sexual assault persist among offenders, victims and the public. Much of these myths suggest that innocent men are commonly accused of sexual assault and women often lie about it to get revenge, for their own benefit, or because they feel guilty about having sex . In reality, the rate of false reporting for sexual assault is no different than any other crime. The Globe and Mail investigation sheds light on the enormous barriers that survivor-victims face. As sexual violence survivor advocates, we at The Women’s Sexual Assault Centre have observed that, too often, systems meant to support victims disbelieve them, work to discredit them, or see them as somehow complicit in their violation. Police services have an important role in supporting victims of crime. Over the last 20 years, much progress has been made in fostering supportive practices meant to address survivors’ needs —and break silence surrounding sexual violence occurring in our community. We have seen improved practices in sexual violence response in our community services, in health services and in policing, amongst many others. We value working together to

address sexual violence. The Women’s Sexual Assault Centre makes the following recommendations to our allies in police services and those working in the criminal justice system: Improve organizational accountability in your service’s processes for responding to sexual assault complaints Take strategic step to reduce problems that can lead to flaws in the investigative process that foster high unfounded rates. Useful actions can include: Improved sexual assault disclosure training for police Learning about and implementing interviewing techniques and procedure that consider the effect that trauma can have on memory (e.g. ensuring the victim has rested and had time for traumatic memories to consolidate Take leadership in fostering educational and training opportunities that actively challenge the persistence of sexual violence myths among lawenforcement officials Implement an Advocate/Systemic case review model (i.e. Philadelphia Model), so to reduce unfounded cases where possible.

You can reach the Women’s Sexual Assault Centre’s office at 613-7355551. If you are a friend or family member of someone who is dealing with sexual violence, there are things you can do too. You can be an ally to the person who is victimized, instead of the accused. You can listen to the person’s story without judgement, scrutiny or expectations that they formally report. You can them to find safe places to seek additional support, if needed, too. The Women’s Sexual Assault Centre of Renfrew County recognizes the impact of sexual violence. We believe that education and information goes a long way toward the prevention of violence. Together, we are making a difference. JoAnne Brooks Centre director Women’s Sexual Assault Centre of Renfrew County

The Renfrew Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is reminding motorists to take the time to prepare themselves and their vehicles for safe winter driving as we continue with challenging winter weather for several more weeks. Winter weather conditions can change quickly, placing extra demands on your vehicle and your driving skills. The winter and early spring months are a particularly important time to stay focused on the road and on other vehicles, and eliminate all distractions. Keeping winter roads and highways safe for all is a shared responsibility between police, other emergency responders, the Ministry of Transportation and drivers. Defensive, responsible driving is crucial to reducing fatalities and serious injuries on our roads, especially during the winter months. Adjusting your driving habits • Allow extra time to travel to and from your destinations. • Allow even more time for traveling when weather is poor. • Slow down and adjust your driving to the current road and weather

conditions. • Leave extra space between vehicles as stopping distances are more than double on snow or ice covered roads. • Stay alert, focus on the road and avoid sudden braking, accelerating or steering. • Never stop on the roadway. If possible, park your vehicle well off the roadway and stay in it until rescuers arrive. Preparing your vehicle for safe winter driving • Equip your vehicle with proper winter tires. When compared to regular or all-season tires, tests have proven that snow tires provide better traction, control and reduced stopping distances on snow covered or icy roads. • Have your vehicle fully serviced to avoid unnecessary breakdowns and ensure that your heater/defroster, lights and wiper blades are all working properly. • Make sure your windows are all clear of ice and snow before heading out.

• Fill up your windshield washer fluid; make sure the sprayers are working properly and have additional windshield washer fluid in your vehicle. • Have an ice scraper or snow brush in your vehicle at all times to clear the snow and ice from all windows, mirrors, lights and roof. • Keep your fuel tank at least half full so that you don’t run out of gas if stranded, and to prevent condensation in your fuel tank. Preparing yourself for safe winter driving • Plan your trip before starting out. Visit the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario web site for road conditions at: www.mto.gov.on.ca/english/ traveller/conditions or call 511 • Check the current weather conditions and the forecast and monitor the media for weather and road conditions. • Carry a survival kit in your vehicle. For a description of a winter driving survival kit visit: www.mto. gov.on.ca/english/safety/winterdrive/ winterdrive.shtml.

Heritage Renfrew is hosting its annual general meeting on Feb. 28 at 7 p.m. at the Royal Canadian Legion in Renfrew. Guest speaker is well-known author Larry Cotton and his books will also be available for sale. The Upper Ottawa Valley owes much of its character to the square timber trade. Blessed with abundant natural resources that made the industry a lucrative and attractive investment, it employed thousands of men over an immense geographic area. The large quantity and quality of red and white pine, combined with oak, seemed limitless in the Upper Valley. The numerous major tributary rivers, which flowed down into the Ottawa River, were essential for transporting the logs to the marketplace. These watercourses also provided sites for sawmills, gristmills and distilleries, all deemed to be essential for supporting timber operations and the formation of self-sufficient communities. Lumbering activity supported the struggling settlement of poor Irish, Scottish, French Canadian, German and Polish families, who took up land grants in the Gatineau River Valley and in Pontiac and Renfrew Counties. Many of these newcomers settled on marginal farmland distant from markets for any produce they were able to produce. Wayside taverns and groggeries were numerous and mostly unregulated. As gathering places for men working for different companies and different camps, they were the rendezvous locations where the champion fighters were determined. Deaths on the annual log drives

Resistance Education program.” A limited number of tickets will be sold so get your tickets early. No tickets will be sold at the door.

Township donates equipment to St. Joseph’s Catholic School in Calabogie In February of 2016 Victoria Thomas from the Township of Greater Madawaska asked St. Joseph’s Catholic School in Calabogie to submit an order to them for play and gym equipment for a grant they were applying for from the County of Renfrew through the Healthy Kids Initiative. The school has worked very closely with the municipality in order to provide these healthy living services and activities. On Friday, Feb. 10 a large amount of outdoor and indoor active living equipment was delivered to the school from the municipality. “Funding was obtained through the Healthy Kids Initiative; equipment was purchased for a number of groups throughout the township, and the school was included because it further enhanced the tremendous resurgence in community use of the School in the last few years,” said Allison Holtzhauer, chief administrative officer for the Township of Greater Madawaska. “We are working on creating an outdoor storage area for all of this equipment because we feel the partnership between the municipality and the school is very important. Since we installed a new boiler system in the fall we no longer need some of the space formerly taken up by the old fuel tank, and that would be a great spot for all of the outdoor equipment to be housed,” added Ian Byce Renfrew County Catholic District School Board plant engineer. “We have worked so closely with the municipality in the past few years, and we are very grateful for the support Allison and Victoria Thomas and Jordan have given us. We now have groups using the school four evenings per week and we feel that is critical for a vibrant community. This equipment will help to provide more opportunities to the school and the community, particularly for the Youth Sport Night, which runs every Tuesday evening in the gym. We are looking to expand community use with some other partnership opportunities with the municipality in the near future,” added Rory Donohue, principal St. Joseph’s School.

Submitted

On hand for the equipment donation with the students in the back left are: Renfrew County Catholic District School Board Ian Byce, St. Joseph’s staff members Karen Herrick and Elizabeth Huckabone and at the back right Staff member Amanda Cameron, Greater Madawaska recreation coordinator Jordan Wall and Greater Madawaska and chief administrative officer Allison Holtzhauer.

The Renfrew chapter of the Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW) is getting set for the annual spring sale. From left are Alexa Legris, Jane Donnelly, Nancy Berkhout, Barb Haydock, Marion Eidsness, Marg McLeish, Millie Ritchie and Barb Smith.

Clean off your shelves for CFUW The Renfrew chapter of the Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW) is getting ready for their annual used book sale on April 28 and 29. This sale is their one big fundraiser of the year and raises money for scholarships for Renfrew Collegiate Institute (RCI) and St. Joseph’s Catholic High School students. All books that are donated need to be sorted, priced and packed into appropriate boxes - a job that keeps these women busy from September through April. “Used books in good condition are always welcome but we ask that they be dropped off at the RCI office by

the middle of March to ensure time to mark them,” says a press release. CFUW is always looking for new members - a university degree is no longer required. “Please join us at our next monthly meeting at 1 p.m. Feb. 20 in the sunroom of Quail Creek. Our guest speaker will be Chela Breckon, project manager for local immigration and she will present a 90-minute workshop designed to help us value and manage cultural diversity in our lives,” said the release. For info on the CFUW, please call Susan Ringrose at 613-432-7405 or Barb Moogk at 613-432-5098.

Eight tables vie for bragging rights LEWIS MACDONALD Renfrew Duplicate Bridge Club

The afternoon was cold, but the cards were hot as eight tables tried to have its pairs out-perform all others in duplicate bridge at Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre on Feb. 8. In the Chalk Talk preceding formal 1 p.m. play, Wayne Daze delivered his customary provocative but enlightening perspectives on optimum contracts, lead-directing information from the bidding and the best percentages in some card choices. Two small slams marked the afternoon’s play. On the same hand, Carol and Dave Sulpher brought home a six no trump contract and Ed McCann and Lew MacDonald were successful at six hearts. Congratulations to the Feb. 8 winners. North-South: first: Carol Sulpher and Dave Sulpher; second: Ernie Berndt and Eric Brown; third: Peter Phillips and Guy Vaillancourt. East – West: first: Ronda Vaillancourt and Lila Paddock; second: Ted Ambridge and Mike Nagrodski; third: Sandra McGregor and Liz Cox. In 2017, Canada is celebrating the

150th anniversary of Confederation. Across the country, organizations and communities are planning how to celebrate this major national milestone. Renfrew’s two bridge clubs send out a special invitation to all bridge players to join them for the historic birthday. The goal of the two clubs is to hold a fun-filled day of bridge during which at least 150 participants can enjoy a day of fellowship and celebration. The event will offer Duplicate (ACBL sanctioned) and Contract Bridge at both morning and afternoon sessions. Registration in advance is required. The clubs hope that you and your bridge partner can help make this happen. Red and white attire is suggested for the day. When: Wednesday, June 28. Where: Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre, Renfrew. Time: Session One: 9 a.m.; lunch: noon; Session two: 1 p.m. Cost: $15 for the day. Participants may play in one or both of the sessions. Register with: Ruth Grant, phone: 613-432-8235, email rjgrant@bell.net.

Timberwolves honoured TIFFANY LEPACK tlepack@metroland.com

Once a Timberwolf, always a wolf. On Feb. 10, three members of the Renfrew Timberwolves were honoured before their Central Canada Tier 2 Hockey League game against the Brockville Tikis. Adam Pearson, Riley Poirier and captain Nolan Rook played their last home game in Renfrew and were each presented a token of appreciation from the team. Timberwolves announcer Peter Clark spoke highly of each player, giving a brief history of their Junior B careers. Pearson started as an affiliate player with the Wolves back in the year 201112. He went on to play his first full season as a Timberwolf in 2012-13. At the end of that season, Pearson relocated out of the valley and had a stint with the Lakefield Chiefs in 2013-14, but returned to his hometown Wolves for his final two seasons 2015-16 and 2016-2017. Pearson originally wore #3 and changed to #65 “The Renfrew Timberwolves appreciate all the skill and determination Adam has brought to the team on and off the ice and wish him all the best in his future,” said Clark. Poirier joined the Timberwolves into the 2016-17 season on a trade, coming from the Arnprior Packers where he played last year for the 201516 season. Prior to the Packers, he was with the Shawville Pontiacs for the 2014-15 season. Sherry Haaima/Metroland “Although only a short time with Derek McGrimmon, second from left, Renfrew Timberwolves general manager and Corey Foster, head us, Riley was part of the Wolfpack coach, second from right, make a special presentation to three players who played their last home game instantly and we recognize and comas Renfrew Timberwolves on Friday, Feb. 10: Adam Pearson, far left, Riley Poirier and captain Nolan Rook. mend him for that,” said Clark. “We

appreciate the grit and skill he brought to our team and wish him well in his future plans.” Rook started his career with the Wolves in the 2012-13 season and has gone on to play five full seasons of hockey with the Renfrew club and has always worn jersey #5. “We appreciate all the leadership Nolan has provided to his teammates and coaching staff over the years. His skill and great sportsmanship were an asset to this club on and off the ice and we wish him in all the best in his future,” said Clark. “We know all three of these young men will succeed in whatever they set their mind to and although not wearing a Timberwolf jersey, as always we hope they continue to keep their stick on the ice!” The three senior players made sure they went out on top as each of them got on the score sheet against the Tikis as the Timberwolves won 3-1 over Brockville. Pearson scored on the power play assisted by Rook in the only goal of the second period. Poirier scored unassisted at 2:01 of the third and Cameron Scissons finished things off at 14:42 of the third period for the Timberwolves. On Feb. 11 the Timberwolves doubled up on the Prescott Flyers 6-3. The Timberwolves (who are in last place of the Richardson Division with a record of 8-33 and did not make the playoffs), finish off the season on the road: Feb. 17 at 8:15 p.m. in Metcalfe versus the Jets, Feb. 19 at 1:30 p.m. in Richmond they take on the Royals and their last game is at 8 p.m. on Feb. 25 at Char-Lan against the Rebels.

Cobden Curling rink in jeopardy Efforts are underway to save the Cobden Curling Rink. A meeting was held Tuesday night, Feb. 7, to discuss the future of the rink and officials say efforts are underway to maintain the facility, which is facing a large financial challenge. "One half of the ice-plant and compressor is no longer functioning and the remaining half is struggling. “A new plant and compressor costs $55,000, plus costs for removal and installation brings the total to approximately $100,000. Grants for capital upgrades are not available at this time," says a recent news release. "The curling rink has been in existence since 1960 and is an important part of the community, and many generations have been involved," it reads. "The club provides fun for everyone including after school for youth, a physical education program for Grade 4 students, senior activity and visits from other schools and 4H groups." Those at the meeting opted to move forward with the new plant. Fundraising will be needed and donations will be welcome, say officials. Ideas are being floated around for how the club will raise the money. Possibilities include trivia nights, community dinners and breakfast fundraisers. To get involved, contact Helen Francis at 613646-2354 or email cobdencurlingclub@yahoo. com.

Renfrew Curling Club mixed championships set for Feb. 25-26 ANDY SKLEPOWICZ BEHIND THE GLASS

Grade 4 students from Cobden Public School recently curled as part of their physical education program. Anabelle Clifford has her turn, above.

This is my last column for a while as I retire to the Garden of Eden where the sun always shines, the wine flows freely and the only ice I`ll see is in the bottom of my glass. Alright you can stop cheering now, I will be back, refreshed and ready for more writing. In the meantime, I leave the column in the able hands of Marg Dawson who previously helped her husband, John, write this column a number of years ago. If nothing else this will appease the half of the audience who seem to think the overly and overtly male biased slant to the column needs some correcting, and quick. And if Marg is willing we may continue the co-production of the column in the future. Monday night results indicate a very competitive draw. On the A side, the Rob Warren, Gary Smith and Brian Yolkowskie teams all tied in wins and losses. However the team of Rob Warren, Andy Humphries, Joe Kasaboski and Brian Hewitt wins the A division by 1/2 end over the Gary Smith`s squad. It was very close in the B division as well. Barry Griese and Gord Eady had the same number of wins and losses.

Barry’s Team wins the B division by 1 1/2 ends. Dropping from A division to B for the next draw are the Bill Bowles, Cliff Valleau and Lauren Scott rinks. Moving up to the “A” side are the team of Barry and Karen Griese, Dwight Hayward and Bernie Leclaire. In the Tuesday afternoon Ladies league, the winners of the Clark Trophy and the third draw were the team of Yvonne Sklepowicz, Theresa Mann, Ann Forgie and Joan Eaton. It was a Battle Royal in Wed. Skins but the team of Rob Warren, Marg Dawson, Tom Carroll and Kevin MacGillvary finally prevailed to take top spot in a hotly contested third draw. In Friendly action, Renfrew hosted Carp’s Huntley Curling Club and the home squads carried the day with a clean sweep. The four winning teams were: Leo McCallum, Anne MacNeil, Cedric Wright and Laura Hanson; Shelley Jamieson, Brian Hewitt, Joan Eaton and Chuck Ross; Andy Sklepowicz, Theresa Mann, Kevin Box and Lyn Joyce; Bill Bowles, Russ Connors, Louise Bowles and Roy Leitch. And don’t forget to sign up for the club mixed championships, Feb. 25, 26 or talk to Cedric Wright for more information.

IN MEMORIAM

September 10, 1989 – February 12, 2008 When a person you love passes away, Look to the night sky on a clear day. The star that to you appears to be bright, Will be your loved one, Looking upon you during the night. The lights of Heaven are what shows through, As your loved one watches all that you do, When you feel lonely for the one that you love, Look to the Heavens in the night sky above! We loved you then, We love you now, And we’ll love you forever! Mom and Dad xoxo Bonnie and Randy Keller Forever loved by brothers Jason (daughter Shay-Lynn), Adam, Brandon and Sister Jaqueline (son Ethan)

Mother and Aunt Bertha were sitting at the kitchen table having a cup of tea. “I don’t think I will ever get used to using onions in anything but a stew or soup pot,” Mother said. They had been talking about our neighbour Mrs. Beam, who said onions could cure everything, and were a heck of a lot cheaper than bringing old Dr. Murphy all the way out from Renfrew. Aunt Bertha assured Mother just about everyone out at Northcote took Mrs. Beam’s advice and used onions to fight colds, cure whooping cough, fix a sore throat, and believed they could even remove warts. I pretended I wasn’t listening and kept dressing and undressing my dolls. I knew the talk would eventually get around to me and the hacking cough I had had for days. And I was being kept home from the Northcote School to “heal up,” as Aunt Bertha called it. Mother put her faith in mustard plasters and Vic’s Vapor Rub from Ritza’s Drug Store, both of which had been tried on my bony chest. But she had to admit neither had done much to rid me of my hacking cough. I knew all about the onion treatments and I hated them with a passion. My sister Audrey hated them even more, because she said anyone in Senior Fourth should not smell like a pot of boiled onions at the Northcote School, and the one time she wore them everyone kept their distance away from her. After that first day, she left the house with the onions tied around her neck, but tossed them in the ditch at the end of our lane, and by the end of the week there was a pile of onions in the snow which Audrey covered with the toe of her galoshes so no one would see them. I couldn’t remember when Mrs. Beam arrived with the little sacks made out of flour bags, with a long string on them, so that they could hang around our necks. She ordered Mother to chop up a couple onions, put them in the bag, put the bag around the neck of the one ailing, send them off to school, and before you could say “cheese” (which was a favourite expression of hers), you’d break any cold or whooping cough, and would even lessen the scourge of the measles! Well, after Aunt Bertha headed back across the 20-acre field with the cutter, Mother found one of the little flour bag sacks, chopped up a good sized onion, filled the bag, and hung it around my neck. My eyes ran buckets of tears, which Mother assured me would stop as soon as I got used to the onions. They didn’t seem to be doing me much

Mary Cook’s Memories MARY COOK

good, as I hacked away all afternoon, and by the time my brothers and sister got home from school, I smelled like our sand bin in the cellar. My hateful brother Emerson, of course, was the first to make a comment, and at supper that night asked Mother if he could eat at the bake table to get away from the smell of raw onions which he said was making him sick. That night Mother decided she would do exactly what Mrs. Beam told her to do, not only to cure me, but to stop the cough from spreading to everyone else in the family. So chopped onions were put on the washstands in our bedrooms, onion bags hung around our necks, and we all went to bed wearing chopped onions in a pair of wool socks. Mother was doing everything Mrs. Beam told her to do. And if everyone came down with a bad cold, it wouldn’t be because she didn’t listen to Mrs. Beam! By the time the lamp was blown out, the upstairs reeked of onions, and my sister vowed she wasn’t going to put a foot outside the next morning to go to school until she washed her hair and had a sponge bath. Well! Talk about a surprise! I didn’t cough once during the night, my nose had stopped running, everyone seemed hale and hearty, and it looked like no one else in the house was going to get my cold. Audrey doused herself with talcum powder, Mother put dabs of vanilla behind my ears, the brothers were well aired out by the time they came in from doing barn chores, and only the faintest smell of onions remained. So off we went to the Northcote School. Mrs. Beam continued to be the person to go to when sickness invaded a household. Onions and coal oil were her favourite treatments. Mother, who never quite got used to them, nevertheless agreed they were worth trying, and a lot cheaper than the $2 old Doctor Murphy charged for coming twelve-and-half miles out from Renfrew.
