NEWS

News - Opponents to the new funding model for Ontario Provincial Police service in municipalities certainly include Renfrew County council. With 15 of 17 county councillors present at the Feb. 27 meeting, 12 councillors have voted in favour of supporting resolutions calling for abolishment of the newly recommended OPP billing model for 2015 and beyond. Two other resolutions called for sending letters to Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne and Association of Municipalities of Ontario president Russ Powers in which the county refers to the proposed billing process as an unfair and non-transparent transfer of costs to municipalities.The first of the resolutions was in support of a similar resolution recently passed by Greater Madawaska Township, where the mayor is Peter Emon, who’s also the county warden. The main resolution notes that adoption of the new model being recommended would see Greater Madawaska’s annual police costs skyrocket 192 per cent, from $312,094 to $911,430. See OPP MODEL, page 2

Horton resident Angela Burgess took up the fight against the provincial government over components of the Clean Water Act more than a decade ago. And now she’s back again, to express her frustrations over Hydro One bills.

Thousands of Ontario residents are complaining about the high amounts of the bills, much higher than normal, from the Ontario crown corporation. Burgess, who owns Renfrew KOA Campground in Horton Township, says her Hydro One bills have been wildly out of whack for several months. See PROTEST, page 3

Minimal tax increase in town budget Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

NEW INFRASTRUCTURE LEVY

This new levy, to be placed in a reserve, is $17,300 this year. If left untouched and added to each year, and assuming levy increases in future years of 2.5 per cent and an annual infrastructure levy of 0.25 per cent, O’Reilly said that account will contain $1.1 million in a decade. The town’s asset management review last year stressed the need for investment in infrastructure, which is deteriorating here and in municipalities across the country, said

MAJOR CAPITAL ITEMS

Major capital items in Renfrew’s 2014 budget are $150,000 for the town’s ďŹ rst infrastructure master plan since 1985; $85,000 for roof work at the town hall; $136,000 to replace a V06 salt-plow truck; $81,000 for a V23 backhoe; $80,000 for a new ice resurfacer; $60,000 to replace Horton Heights’ play structure; $40,000 for sliding entrance doors at the Ma-Te-Way Community Centre to address accessibility issues; and $40,000 for a community improvement plan. The 2014 budget projects operating expenses of $1.7 million for administration, library and other activities, $2 million for policing, $2.2 million for development and works, $1.4 for ďŹ re protection, and $965,000 for recreation. Of the $9 million in operating revenue, 77.6 per cent will come from taxation, 18.6 per cent from the Ontario Municipal Partnership Fund, and 3.8 per cent from other sources. More than $1 million in considered expenditures were dropped from the budget, namely $630,000 in town hall and post ofďŹ ce building improvements, $90,000 in road work, and about $260,000 for parks and recreation. Based on the 2014 operating and capital budgets prepared for council’s consideration Monday, the projected residential tax rate for the town’s portion of the 2014 tax bill will be 1.2 per cent lower than in 2013.

The County of Renfrew is projecting a residential tax rate decrease of 1.3 per cent and the education tax rate is 4.25 per cent lower than in 2013. Combining the town, county and education components of the tax bill, the projected residential tax rate for Renfrew residents should be 1.7 per cent lower than in 2013. O’Reilly’s budget presentation included details of the 10-year capital forecast, reserves and the town’s debt loan. TOWN DEBT

One graph showed Renfrew had to borrow $2 million in 2010 while waiting for the provincial and federal government’s funding portions for the new wastewater treatment plant. O’Reilly said town staff can take pride knowing no such borrowing has taken place since 2010 and isn’t scheduled to be. O’Reilly says the town debt was $15.2 mil- Treasurer Keray O’Reilly presents the 2014 town lion in 2010 and $12.4 million as of Dec. budget that was unanimously approved by Renfrew 31, 2013. council.

News – Renfrew residents whose home property values increased by an average of 2.95 per cent this year will be paying a minimum municipal tax increase. Residents will pay $14.93 more than last year’s local tax bill of $864.80 for each $100,000 of current assessment home values. For a more typical house, valued at $250,000, that will mean a jump of $37.22 to $2,199.23. Council members voted 6-0 to pass the budget Feb. 24. Reeve Audrey Green was out of town at the good roads convention. Treasurer Keray O’Reilly presented budget details and received approval of a 2.25 per cent levy increase and an additional infrastructure levy of one-quarter of one percentage point. The two components represent a total levy increase of 2.5 per cent. Acknowledging that many residents have clamoured for more improvements to town roads, Mayor Bill Ringrose said the new infrastructure levy is intended to help in that regard. “This budget maintains the service level that we planned. It doesn’t really add anything new, but it isn’t taking anything away,� said Ringrose. “Whatever service levels you got used to over the past year were maintained. We are taking one very small initiative to try to create a little more revenue in the long term because we’re going to have to do more to improve our infrastructure, primarily roads and sidewalks.�

O’Reilly. This is one way to address that situation, he said. Another is to continue to lobby government for needed funds. And a third way is to be shovel-ready when funding becomes available. Preparation in that regard was the budget’s $75,000 set aside for design of the town’s next major infrastructure project. Renfrew’s 2014 budget covers $9 million in projected expenditures, with $2 million coming from government grants and other smaller streams of town revenue (such as dog tags, lottery licenses and marriage licences) and $7 million in taxation dollars. Capital projects amount to $634,000, up from $611,000 in 2013.

10-YEAR CAPITAL PLAN

The town’s 10-year capital forecast includes creating reserves for landďŹ ll expansion of $40,000 in 2015 and $100,000 each of the following eight years. Expansion will happen soon enough, with remaining capacity of the landďŹ ll estimated to be 11 or more years. Other major projected capital costs for 2015 include $100,000 for a snow blower and $190,000 for a street sweeper. The many items in the 10-year capital forecast include setting aside $15,000 each year from 2015 through 2023 for repaving the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre parking lot. The 10-year forecast also calls for annual investments, starting in 2015, of $265,000 to $320,000 for ongoing roadwork revitalization.

OPP model Continued from front page

The same resolution calls for the Province to “abolish the proposed new OPP funding model in favour of a model that is equitable to all small, rural municipalities.â€? Only three county councillors voted against the main resolution – Jennifer Murphy of Bonnechere Valley, Walter Stack of Arnprior who said his municipality has been negotiating since 2005 for lower OPP costs, and Audrey Green of Renfrew. In the county’s letter to Premier Wynne, Warden Emon expresses the disappointment of Renfrew County communities “with the handling of the OPP billing process and the unfair and non-transparent transfer of costs to municipalities ‌ While the County of Renfrew does not provide police services, we do represent the interests of our 17

member municipalities when advocating for change.â€? The Arnprior reeve explained why he opposed the resolutions. “Now we’re getting somewhere, so just abolishing everything that has been done up to now isn’t the answer,â€? said Stack. “The only thing that’s bothering everyone around here is the shift of money (costs), and that’s still on the table, so let’s talk about it, and how much gets uploaded and how much we pay ourselves.â€? Murphy says Bonnechere Valley is already among the municipalities who are paying higher than average for OPP service, at $700,000. “I’m not sure I want to see this (new model) abolished, but I want to see it a little more fair ‌ and not throwing out this entire (new) billing model, but perhaps coming up with something that makes more sense.â€? The letter says the OPP po-

licing model, with regards to municipal responsibility and ďŹ nancial obligations, “has been broken since the late 1990s when it was arbitrarily retooled without regard for municipal input and research, or frankly much thought beyond passing the costs on with an accompanying blaze of self-congratulating messaging.â€? The letter asks the premier to delay implementation of the new model and, instead, install a Rural, Small Communities Provincial-Municipal-ďŹ scal and Service Delivery Review panel (under the auspices of the Ministry of Finance) to review service delivery levels in rural and small-town Ontario. This review, suggests Emon, would also review the ability of municipalities to pay for OPP service. Under the proposed new model, the town of Renfrew’s annual policing costs would likely drop, according to a recent analysis by Renfrew trea-

surer Keray O’Reilly. Renfrew Reeve Green explained why she wouldn’t support the county’s OPP resolutions. “I think the whole costing for the OPP needs to be revamped. Certainly it should be uploaded, but not just uploaded and left like that,� said Green. “There are too many charges that we don’t understand. The whole system needs to be upgraded, with some kind of control from us, because the time has to stop when different organizations can charge whatever they want.� Absent from the vote were David Thompson of Deep River and Bob Sweet of Petawawa. The dozen supporters of the main resolution included RayeAnne Briscoe of AdmastonBromley, Don Eady of Horton, Harold Weckworth of North Algona Wilberforce and Mary Campbell of McNab-Braeside. “It’s the guts of the model that is all wrong,� said Briscoe.

Protest on Hydro One bills headed here Continued from front page

“People are telling me their bills are high, with bills of $300, $400, $500, $600 some months, and in some instances higher than their monthly mortgage payments,� says Burgess. So she’s among organizers across the province who are preparing to spearhead demonstrations on Friday, April 4. Demonstration sites will include Renfrew, Barry’s Bay and Pembroke, says Burgess. Burgess says her own business and home bills are about twice what they used to be, following the installation of the smart meters to determine the billing amounts. Burgess says the Hydro One bill for her own one-storey mobile home is totally unreasonable, despite proof on her bill that she’s using hydro more during off-peak hours. Evidence that calculations of hydro bills are inaccurate and grossly unfair, she says, come from her delivery charge of $174.84 for a January bill of $438.66. She also notes that the recent bill includes a debt retirement charge of $15.91, even though the hydro debt was paid off about two years ago. “I know people are loathe to complain about even something that affects them so deeply,� said Burgess. “But too many people are living in the dark because they can’t afford their Hydro One bills.� Renfrew residents aren’t affected as much because they’re Renfrew Power Generation customers, she says. But residents in neighbouring rural municipalities are, and Burgess says she’d like to hear from those people, to prepare for the April 4 demonstration. Burgess says the local and peaceful protest will be scheduled at a time and location to be determined. To learn more about the upcoming protests, Burgess suggests people visit the Facebook page of hydrooneenoughisenough. Another local resident voicing his displeasure is Basil Pessin, who lives on Fourth Chute just outside Douglas. In a letter that he sent to Toronto and Ottawa journalists last month, he calls this a “scandal in the making of proportions never before seen in Ontario.� He complains in the letter of Ontario residents receiving monthly bills of $800. Pessin says he’s been told the problem is the new smart meters that aren’t reading nearly as smartly as they should be. “Meanwhile,� writes Pessin, “some people are paying $800 bills and have no idea where the money will come from.�

County seeks healthy grant for healthy kids Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

News - Application to the Province for a $1.5-million, four-year Healthy Kids Community Challenge grant has received Renfrew County council’s stamp of approval. With the backing of other health-related agencies, the county’s child care division is applying for the grant that will be awarded to as many as 30 Ontario municipalities, with populations of 10,000 to 200,000, by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. The county’s population is about 100,000. The maximum allowable grant is $1.5 million. At its Feb. 27 meeting, Renfrew County council supported the application, following a presentation by Renfrew County and District Health United health promoter Brian Brohart and Renfrew County child care services manager Judy Mulvihill. If the grant is approved, the Healthy Kids Community Challenge program would dove-tail nicely with three components of the seven-part Renfrew Country strategic plan. Those are the development of a linked

trail system, promotion of active transportation and the fostering of health promotion and disease prevention. These components are seen by healthrelated agencies as necessary if the county residents are to shed their reputation as one of the most obese and unfit in Ontario. “It’s a wonderful, wonderful grant, and much needed,� said Killaloe, Hagarty and Richards Mayor Janice Visneskie Moore. The program also follows the provincial health ministry’s release last year of the report, No Time to Wait, that documents the need for action to deal with such concerns as Ontario’s high level of diabetes, cancer and heart disease. Key community partners would include the health unit, licensed child care facilities, child service agencies, municipal recreation departments, schools and local businesses. If the grant application is successful, program activities might include active transportation awareness campaigns, school breakfast programs, after-school cooking clubs, and new food and beverage policies at recreation centres. However, it’s up to the grant recipient and team members to develop their own activities.

“It needs to be more than recreation and food policy,� said Brohart. “Together, collectively, we can do this and help make Renfrew County a leader because of our outdoor spaces and activities.� With approved funding, the health ministry would provide communities with a healthy-living theme (along with social marketing opportunities and educational information) every nine months of the fouryear campaign. These themes will promote healthy eating, active living and getting adequate sleep. “The Healthy Kids Community Challenge is an opportunity for Renfrew County to impact childhood obesity and encourage healthy weights among children and youth,� said Brohart. “We are doing a lot of really good things in Renfrew County, through our recreation departments and school programming, to impact children’s health. But the fact is if it’s costing Ontario $4.5 billion a year to treat childhood obesity and (other) people that are overweight, there are still a lot of opportunities that need to be explored.�Grant recipients are scheduled to be notified early this spring

Pessin notes that the Ontario Energy Board is supposed to regulate Hydro One, but is doing “a very poor job of it.� Meanwhile, says Pessin, “Why hasn’t Hydro One done anything about it for almost a year? What they have done is minimal and people are still paying $800 and have no idea why because Hydro One is keeping very quiet about the true causes.� In closing his letter, he says, “What is happening now is definitely criminal, and (is) why I believe Hydro (One) is slow to do anything about it. “There are or should be people who burn for this because of the horror they are causing in the lives of many people. Especially the poor, like myself. We need help.� “The last thing I want is for our customers to worry,� says Hydro One president Carmine Marcello in a letter that appears on page 8 of this edition. “They deserve bills that are clear, timely and accurate.� The president also writes: “We know our customers are counting on us and we owe it to them to make sure that we learn from this and that we do better.� To learn about the Renfrew protest against Hydro One bills, email Burgess at info@renfrewkoa.com or call her at 613-432-2603.

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A high percentage of Renfrew County residents, as high as 34 per cent, are functionally illiterate. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a worrisome statistic, which places stress on learning by youth and taxes the employment potential of many adults. So, the Training and Learning Centre, housed in Eganville and run by the husband-wife team of Phil Godon and Cathy Lyons, is using a $13,400 Trillium Foundation grant to do a feasibility study. They addressed the Feb. 27 meeting of county council, where they explained they are seeking to determine if a mobile training and learning centre is wanted and needed in communities along the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Highway 60 corridor. The study is also focused on determining if the service can be provided at a cost that clients or sponsoring agencies are willing to pay. The study is also intended to help determine if the Training and Learning Centre can accumulate the resources needed to acquire and outfit a mobile learning centre (lab), and if there are private organizations or other ongoing sources of income to maintain the mobile learning centre over an extended period of time. The mobile centre would be a bus or similar vehicle that has space for six working stations with high-speed Internet, six students and one teacher.

No more blue books Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

News - For decades there were annual ‘blue books’ that summarized the many resolutions passed by Renfrew County council each year. Now the county has gone one step further, with a 2013 yearbook of county business. Copies of the 112-page publication were released at the Feb. 27 meeting of county council, while a copy was placed on the county website of countyofrenfrew.on.ca in mid-February “The intention of the book was to have a living record of county business for 2013 in terms of resolutions from committees and county council, as well as to capture the activities and notable events that took place,” said editor Michael Barber, the county’s media relations and grants co-ordinator. Sections include photographs of special guests to the county or county council. Snapshots show visits by Ontario Minister of Ru-

The yearbook also contains candid shots of county councillors in council or committee meetings, staff members, and brief essays on each member municipality of Renfrew County council.

This is a significant investment and it has to be well planned and financed if it is going to be sustainable, says a highlighted statement in the centre’s standalone exhibit at county council. Transportation has been cited as a potential barrier to adult education. It is possible, says Lyons, that many people needing basic skills training don’t have the means to get to learning facilities. “Perhaps, if training could be brought closer to them, they would enrol in the classes,” said Lyons. “This is why we are exploring the idea of a mobile learning lab.” Part of the feasibility study entails focus-group discussions to explain the project and learn more about local needs for basic-skills training. If the feasibility study is supportive of a mobile learning centre, said Godon, then a business plan will be created to attract investment for the project.

SEEKING FEEDBACK

Meanwhile, Godon and Lyons would like to hear feedback from any agencies or community groups, and hear community suggestions about how to make the study better-known and engage people about the notion of benefiting from a mobile learning centre. They also welcome suggestions regarding other potential uses of the mobile centre, such as arts and culture awareness programs, flu shot clinics, computer training and income tax form calculations. In examining mobile service units in various parts of the world, Lyons and Godon have learned most serve larger populations than Renfrew County and typically share operating costs with two or more agencies.

Construction activity way up Steve Newman steve.newman@meroland.com

News - With the help of housing construction in the new Hunter Gate subdivision, residential construction activity in Renfrew increased by 47 per cent in 2013. The value of residential construction increased by that amount, while commercial construction activity rose only 3.8 per cent over the previous year. The value of residential construction jumped from $2.97 million in 2012 to $4.37 million in 2013. Commercial construction values jumped during that same period from $4.43 million to $4.6 million. When the two figures are combined, total construction value is up 21.3 per cent, from $7.4 million to $8.98 million. That compares to Renfrew’s total-construction values of $4.1 million in 2011, $6.4 million in 2010, and $6.2 million in 2009. In 2013, 95 building permits were issued, compared to 92 in 2012. Total building fees from 2012 to 2013 increased $12,720 to $473,004. Council is expected to soon consider a staff request to increase building permit fees. Renfrew’s fees are now among the lowest in the county. A total of $78,510 in fees was collected for residential units in 2013. The cost of a residential building permit fee is $8 per $1,000 construction value. For a house valued at $150,000, that’s $1,200. PIPELINE CROSSINGS

Renfrew continues discussions with Canadian Pacific Rail in efforts to moderate charges

for pipeline crossings. There are about 10 sewer, water or storm pipe crossings on Canadian Pacific property that had annual cost-agreements of about $5 to $40 per crossing. Increases to about $1,000 were being sought by the railway bodies, but Renfrew development and works director Mike Asselin said the town continued to pay the lower fees outlined in the original agreement. After acquiring the railway from Ottawa Valley Rail and Rail America, Canadian Pacific requested, through correspondence, that the per-crossing annual fees rise to about $100 and be retroactive to November 2011. The impact to the 2014 budget would be $4,583, with additional fees of $1,583 due in November 2014. A Renfrew committee has reviewed the issue and indicated it wants no retroactive fees and an indication of how much CP is charging other municipalities for pipeline crossings. REQUEST FOR SUMMER HOURS

The Canadian Union of Public Employees has asked Renfrew to consider adopting summer hours for its public works staff in 2014. If granted, the hours would likely be in effect May 5 to Oct. 10. The town used summer hours in recent years, but reverted back to normal hours in 2013. Development and works director Mike Asselin told council the town would consider accommodating the request if it means no extra staffing costs for workers or supervisors. In the past, Renfrew arranged 10-hour shifts Monday to Thursday for half the staff, and Tuesday through Friday for the other half.

EDITORIAL

Connecting Canadians with nature Opinion - It’s no secret in Renfrew and area. Most people here know the countless benefits of the great outdoors. They understand that our natural environment is one of Canada’s, and Ontario’s, greatest assets. So it’s good news indeed to hear that Canada’s parks ministers have committed to work together to inspire Canadians to experience nature through parks in ways that support their health and wellbeing. A news release issued last week says the action was prompted by the first-ever comprehensive evidence-based report in Canada that chronicles the many proven benefits of spending time in nature. The report developed by the Canadian Parks Council – Connecting Canadians with Nature: An investment in the well-being of our Citizens compiles research that demonstrates the immense benefits of connecting with the natural world. The benefits touch upon the economy; physical and mental health; spirit and cultural identity; personal development; the welfare of communities and the environment. After a meeting last week of the Federal-Provincial-Territorial Ministers Responsible for Parks, a joint statement by Canada’s park leaders said they are committed to innovate, diversify and adapt the country’s park offerings to meet the changing needs of families, and to work with various sectors of Canadian society “to support experiences in nature that enhance Canadians’ collective health, prosperity, growth and productivity.” Those sectors include municipalities, school teachers, health practitioners, business leaders, community builders and tourism operators. The parks ministers also agreed to collaborate in developing a passport to parks, to build on existing

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Disagrees with figures To the editor: Re: Greater Madawaska Ward One Recycling and Garbage Over the year 2013 and into 2014 there has been a huge increase in recycling in Ward One. I do not agree with the figures presented on recycling. These bins are being filled fast, regularly every week, two weeks or faster. People deserve a heck of a lot of credit for their efforts, and news like this is not satisfactory, in my opinion. So stop let’s saying negative comments and produce a much better effort. Cardboard and newspaper are also coming in at a pretty

good rate. Yes, we have some garbage issues, but that will change with clear-bag education. As for business on my end, people do a good job in recycling but there is room for improvement that’s coming. I serve a large area – Ward One – Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Am I happy, yes. Am I proud, yes. Don’t take away my privileges to the waste site. I have worked for them 37 years. It would be sad for small business, and a service provider.

Hydro One president clarifies billing system issue To the editor: I am writing as a result of recent news coverage concerning Hydro One, in particular, issues with our customer billing system and the impact it is having on some of our customers. First and foremost, I would like to apologize to our customers who are experiencing billing and customer service issues. As the leader of Hydro One, I am directly accountable for customer service and I promise you that I will focus our resources on not only fixing these problems but on changing our customer service culture. This past May, Hydro One transitioned to a new billing system. Our old system was outdated, not working well and it was determined that a change was needed. While the new system did correct some existing issues, the unanticipated result was that some customers experienced prolonged estimated bills,

delayed bills, multiple bills or no bills at all. Customers calling the call centre have also experienced a lower level of service as agents have struggled with the new system. Escalated complaints are sometimes taking months to resolve. Clearly, this is not the level of service people deserve from Ontario’s electricity delivery company and it is not the level of service we aim to deliver. I have focused every available resource on resolving these issues. A dedicated team is already working to fix the problems as quickly as possible. The last thing I want is for our customers to worry. They deserve bills that are clear, timely and accurate. So I want your readers – our customers – to know that they will only pay for the electricity they use. If they receive a catch-up bill because they have been billed on estimates or

digital tools that make it easier for Canadians to visit their parks and share best practices to expand programs such as learn-to-camp activities in more jurisdictions. “Within a generation, Canada has transitioned from a rural to an urban nation, with 80 per cent of Canadians now living in cities. Canadians today spend on average 90 per cent of their time indoors, with increasingly sedentary lifestyles that are contributing to a variety of chronic health issues,” said a new release issued after the meeting. “From lowering blood pressure, to reducing stress levels, to supporting children’s cognitive development, nature has the profound ability to support both our physical and mental health,” the release said. The meeting also concluded that green spaces also support job growth and economic prosperity and build stronger communities by creating outdoor tourism and recreation opportunities. With spring just around the corner, get outdoors to explore and enjoy the many gifts of nature. And support our many precious parks. Canadian Parks Council executive director Dawn Carr aptly observed: “Canada’s extraordinary system of parks, the oldest in the world, offers some of the best places to experience all of nature’s powerful benefits, but we cannot work alone. The Canadian Parks Council is ready to join forces with others, to create new opportunities that will help maximize the many benefits of personally experiencing nature.” We hope citizens and community groups will do all they can to encourage fellow Canadians, and Ontarians, to respect and enjoy nature in parks everywhere. They are treasures to be protected, preserved and appreciated.

Mr. Basil George, a former player at Queen’s University in Kingston, donated the George Cup trophy which is in the Eganville Museum.

The Admaston team did not win the Cup again until 1954, In 1955, the “husky lads of Admaston” joined with the Northcote boys to form the Admaston-Northcote Redmen and won the Cup that year. By this time, Foymount had joined the League and won the Cup in 1956. However, the “dynasty” began (as several of the players so proudly stated) the next year as the AdmastonNorthcote Redmen won the George Cup for the next three years 1957,1958 and 1959. In true community spirit, most championships were recognized by holding banquets for the players, quite often at their local churches. It was reported that many of the games were played in the Renfrew Arena (The Old Barn, now the RCAF Wing) and drew fans to the games as high as 1,800 or over 2,000 much to the chagrin of other leagues at that time.

Several of the players on the Admaston-Northcote rink played for many years including from 1947 to 1961, usually wearing the same sweater numbers (“reserved” for them). Transportation in those days was by various means. Sometimes by car or train; sometimes they all piled into the back of Jack Foy’s cattle truck with racks and bales of straw for seats for trips to such places as Foymount. Can you imagine the reaction nowadays? No seats! No seat belts! No headrests! Later, apparently, they were able to travel by bus. When asked if they had any sponsors, some of the players stated that they had to pay their own way, supplemented by the gate receipts from some of the well-attended games, especially the playoff games. Following are some of the Admaston-Northcote Redmen from the 1950s, based on the sweater number they wore: 1. Bryan Briscoe, Pat McIntyre; 2. Glen Crozier; 3. Ken Bromley; 4. Harry Crozier, Ron Bowes; 5. Donald Campbell; 6. Beattie Crozier; 7. Tom Briscoe, 8. Eddie Briscoe; 10. Johnny Gibbons, 11. Archie Craig; 12. Moodie Campbell; 13. Mervin Gibbons; and 14. Lloyd Butler. Coaches from those early days included Howard Headrick, Ken Briscoe and Harry Crozier.

A night at community rink left everyone warm with contentment Lifestyle - It certainly wasn’t anything to get up in the middle of the night and write home about, according to my cousins from Ottawa. They had rinks inside of heated buildings and ice as smooth as glass, whereas the little rink behind the Northcote School was anything but grand. But it suited our purposes well, and certainly got lots of use once the ice was built up on the patch of ground that in the summertime was nothing but weeds and hay growing willynilly. The rink had stand-up boards on two sides, and each end was open so that we could just walk right onto the ice easily. As soon as the winter had settled in, the boys of senior fourth, along with their fathers, started building up the ice. It was a major job, since every drop of water had to be hauled from the farms around, or from the pump in the middle of the schoolyard. It was brought in big barrels, and timed so that many sleighs would arrive at the same time, and the water dumped on the spot. Using pails to take water from the school pump was a wasted exercise, since most of it would be spilled before hitting the rink, and a pail of water did little to build up the ice. No one got on the ice until it was of the depth the Senior Fourth boys thought was proper, and this could take weeks at

someone from a fairy tale as she skated around and around the rink. There was no music of course. Not like in the rink in Renfrew where we once went to see an ice revue brought out from Ottawa, and listened to songs like Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer true, and The Skater’s Waltz. We would skate until Mr. Briscoe blew a whistle and that meant the fun was over for that night. We would try to do one more Crack the Whip, and then the boys would use the big shovels and scrape off the chips and snow, and another couple of barrels of water, kept on one of the big sleighs would be poured over the surface of the rink, left to freeze over solid before our next night of skating. Then we would all head into the Northcote School where the Ladies Aid would have big pots of steaming hot chocolate sitting on the stove in the middle of the schoolroom. Always there were oatmeal cookies and ginger snaps, all of which vanished in jig time. I would tumble into bed, happily exhausted, with my toes still cold as ice, after crawling out of my clothes which would be soaked right through to my navy blue fleece-lined underwear, but with a feeling of utter joy and contentment. Our whole family would feel the same. My three brothers would

the start of winter. And then, finally, it was deemed suitable! And what a day that was. Miss Crosby, who excused no one from a full day of schooling, on that day, cut the classes short, allowed us to bring what passed for skates, and have an hour of fun before heading home. And what an hour it was! Of course, the ice was full of lumps and cracks and ridges, and until we learned what area of the rink to avoid, we spent most of the time picking ourselves up off the new ice. A couple of the farm fathers had made wide-bladed shovels, attached to the handle of forks, and the rule was that after each use, the ice had to be shovelled off, and the accumulated snow shoved through the two openings at either end of the rink. The older boys took advantage of this chore, and did it with their skates still on, and I noticed they always managed to get a good skate in while doing it, and often had a fast game of shinny in the bargain. If there wasn’t a Saturday night house party in the com-

munity, whole families went to the Northcote School rink. Most came on big flat-bottomed sleighs, and they circled a big steel barrel that was filled with firewood, and once lit, the flames shot a mile into the sky, and even though there was scarcely enough heat to take the chill out of your bones, it gave a bit of relief to the freezing night air. Women sat on the sleighs wrapped in blankets, and most of the men stood around the burning barrel, smoking their pipes and talking farm talk. We children put on our skates on the sleighs, and mine were those hateful bob skates, dull as dishwater, and rusted brown. I used them until Miss Crosby one night, arrived with a pair of regular skates for me ... handing them to me in a brown paper bag so that no one would know of the deed. I was ecstatic and finally was able to keep up with bad Marguirite, who not only had new skates, they were as white as the driven snow, and her mother had attached tiny silver bells to the laces, and she tinkled like

Community - Canadians across the country are almost unanimous, with 96 per cent supporting palliative care in a Harris/Decima survey. Timmins-James Bay MP Charlie Angus says that now is the time for parliament to follow Canadians as he leads a parliamentary fight for a national strategy on improving access to palliative and hospice care with his parliamentary motion M-456. “All across the country Canadians understand the importance of palliative care in their lives. This is a clear message for the Liberal and

Conservative parties to join the NDP motion calling for the federal government to take a more active role in end-of-life care.” Additional highlights from the survey show Canadians believe endof-life care: helps a patient manage their choices along the way (93 per cent); greatly reduces the stress and burden placed on the family (93%); improves quality of life for patients (94%); should be in the patient’s setting of choice (93%); and should be integrated for all people with chronic, life-limiting conditions (90%).

FORM 6 Susan McGregor Renfrew and Area Seniors’ Home Support

Community - What are the Seniors’ Home Support volunteers doing for fun when not getting to know some great people in our community as they provide services? Answer: attending a fun bowl. On Feb. 23 we hosted a fun afternoon of bowling at the Renfrew Bowling Alley with 25 volunteers coming out on a beautiful sunny afternoon to compete on one of five teams. Lots of laughs, jokes, and fun were shared by all as the experienced and non-experienced players tested their skills including a few challenges led by organizer Suzanne Lachambre. During the second round of games participants were asked to bowl with their opposite hand and through their legs. This challenged a few but some were greatly surprised at how well this increased their score. After the games the gang went to the Wing for a bowl of hot chili and dessert and the awarding of prizes to those who scored highest, lowest and in between. So if you are looking for something fun to do, consider joining Seniors’ Home Support as a volunteer. As demand increases for our services, so does the need for volunteers. Please call us at 613-432-7691 for more information on becoming a volunteer. Just a friendly reminder that we will be hosting our second annual St. Patty’s Day entertainment on Saturday, March 8 at the Renfrew Legion from 2 to 4 p.m. There is a great lineup of music and entertainment to help us celebrate St. Patrick’s Day: Guy Jamieson, Darrel Mooney, Kent Smith, Dennis Harrington and The Donahue and Enright Families. The cost is $8 per person and tickets are available at the office or at the door. A light lunch will be served and there will be a 50/50 draw and door prizes. Seniors’ Home Support is looking forward to seeing everyone at the Renfrew Home Show at the Armouries from March 21 to 23. We hope that you will take the time to stop by our booth for a visit and chat with our volunteers. 14 The Renfrew Mercury EMC - Thursday, March 6, 2014

First red-winged blackbirds return for another season

SCOUTS

Adult male purple martin and eastern bluebird scouts also arrive on the nesting grounds before the females and last season’s young. As with the red-winged blackbirds they are looking for the best nest houses. Both species return to the same location every year making it difficult for young birds to gain a territory for themselves the bluebirds in particular. The scouts will often return to the wintering grounds and communicate their findings, especially if conditions are poor, to the other members of their species.

Jack and Jane Clark on Wade Avenue had a pair of purple finches return to their feeders for the first time since early in the

JIM FERGUSON Scene from the Hawk’s Eye

NEWS FROM EARLTON

fall. They said the bright, raspberry red of the male was a pleasure to see after a very dull winter. Carol McCuaig in Admaston-Bromley had purple finches at her feeder this week for the first in over two months and she said the burst of colour on the snow was a wonderful sight to see. We can expect more colour as we get added hours of daylight and the birds return from their winter range. Carol has noted that the blue jays have started their food passing behaviour at her feeders, a sure sign that spring is on its way. SPRING BEHAVIOUR

We are still waiting for the chickadees to give their three-note spring song. They are certainly free with their scolding (dee, dee, dee) call when we are replenishing our feeders, “glad to see you or why are you so late.” We have noticed that the dominant pair are expressing their wishes and taking over the feeder whenever they wish. A quick thrust of the bill lets you know and other chickadees as well just who is the boss. Listen for the call and watch for the aggressive behaviour, we should be hearing and seeing them before long. White-breasted nuthatches are giving

Ed Goddard forwarded us a copy of the Marsh Wren, the publication of the Hilliardton Marsh Research and Education Centre at Earlton, Ontario. The newsletter is published four times a year and includes information about their banding programs, the Great Backyard Bird Count, the Christmas Bird Count, also special events such as the banding of a rare rufous hummingbird on Nov. 1, 2013 and the recovery and banding of snow buntings. Many of these activities involve young people from the community. If you wish to contact them the email address is feedback@themarsh.ca and the web site is www.the marsh.ca. If you are travelling in the north this summer and wish to drop in, go to the tourist bureau and they will be glad to direct you. CORRECTION

I would like to apologize for an error in last week’s column of the Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) for 2014. The number of countries entering checklists was up from 110 to 114, not 110,000 to 114,000. R0012578936

PURPLE FINCHES AT LAST

their auk, auk auk aggressive call. It is a loud clear note that indicates to other nuthatches that the area is being claimed by the dominant pair. Pileated woodpeckers have started to drum, show their crest and wave their bill, all signs that they are claiming a territory and others should stay away. Courtship behaviour will be increasing as we move toward spring, watch for it. R0411950802.0227

Lifestyle - Mary and Dwaine Steele had the first red-winged blackbirds of the season arrive at their feeder this week. In previous years the birds have arrived as early as the last week of February but temperatures were a lot milder and there was very little snow cover. Adult male scouts arrive on their summer range early to claim the best nesting territories. It is a good territory with food and shelter that will provide him with up to four mates. Some years when conditions are favourable the scouts do not return south but remain until the females arrive as much as two weeks later. An increase in the amount of daylight indicates to the birds that it is time to move to the nesting grounds. Since there is very little natural food available because of the deep snow they will be at our feeders cleaning up any food that has been spilled.

News - Renfrew schools were among the 130 students and 22 teams who participated in Saturday’s Destination Imagination Eastern Ontario Tournament at Renfrew Collegiate, designed to encourage creativity in problem solving. Teams from Queen Elizabeth Public School and Our Lady of Fatima Catholic School placed first and second respectively in the structural team challenge, The Tension Builds. Members of the Queen Elizabeth team were Kenya Stevenson, Sadie Cuccaro, Hannah Hubert, Tal Stevenson, Carson Lefebvre, Ben Cracknell and Sam Buxton. Our Lady of Fatima team was represented by Emma Ryan, Jacqueline Thaci, Calvin Gauer, Braydon Clarke, Matthew Sarsfield, Kellie Dowdall, Amanda Blimkie and Maggie Lycett. To solve their challenge the team had to build a structure made entirely from wood, glue and/or monofilament fishing line. The team had to test the structure’s strength under stress from two sources and create and present a story in which tension was a threat to stability and was overcome. Each challenge presented its own unique learning opportunities. A third Renfrew team – from Queen Elizabeth Public School – competed in the

Grades 6 to 8 division, a particular achievement as three of the five members are still in Grade 5. That team was comprised of Wesley Matthews, Gabrielle Carthy, Olivia Smart, Malorey Lambert and Cassidy Friske. Regional director Doug Hunter, who joined the Destination Imagination team when he retired almost three years ago, sings the praises of the program. “I’m so impressed and passionate about this,” he said, noting the program’s tremendous volunteer support and the fact that 40 per cent of the team managers are parents. He said there was also great support from both local school boards, plus the County of Renfrew who was represented at the morning opening ceremonies by Warden Peter Emon. The tournament has grown in popularity, largely by word of mouth, as it teaches young people to be innovative and creative in finding solutions. The tournament also places focus on appraisal, not judgement, with ‘praise’ a key part of the evaluation process. The top-three finishers now advance to competition in Toronto.

Successful Jamie Wright ice fish derby draws 330 participants to Calabogie Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

Sports - High winds didn’t stop the Calabogie Fish and Game Club from hosting another successful Jamie Wright Memorial Fishing Derby. The sunny-Saturday Feb. 22 event attracted 330 entries. A total of 252 seniors and 78 juniors took part in the 13th annual derby, which pays tribute to the avid fisherman and fish and game club president who died in a workplace accident 12 years ago. Jamie’s mother Mary, who helps out in the derby’s kitchen each year, said: “I hope those who take part appreciate what the Calabogie Fish and Game Club does in memory of him.” Her reference was to the club’s reinvestment of some derby profits to provide many hunting and boating safety courses for youngsters over the years. Continuing enthusiasm can be attributed in large part, says club president Brian Moran, to the location of Calabogie Lake, right beside the derby headquarters in Barnet Cot-

tage, and to the ongoing popularity of fishing in the county. He and wife Dianne were even more pleased after a warm, rainy Friday left volunteer organizers wondering if the derby would be cancelled. Derby participants include Jamie Wright’s sons Adam and Nicholas, and Wright’s brother Ernie, of Admaston-Bromley, who attended along with sons Michael, Jonathon and Justin, who caught a three-pound pike. The event, said Ernie, is a chance to get out with friends and family to do something they enjoy. “It’s like a family gathering,” he said. In the continuing spirit of the day, each participating fishermen under the age of 18 received a paper bag containing an assortment of products, like a tooth brush, fishing lure or other knickknacks. The latter included pizza certificates or $5 bills. Registration for the live-release event was $3 for juniors and $8 for seniors, those 18 and older. No pickerel were caught this year, but 22 pike tipped the weigh scales

Wolves oust Shawville, advance to Valley Division championship series Peter Clark peter.clark@metroland.com

Sports - The Renfrew Timberwolves are back, gunning for the club’s third Valley Division title in four years in the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League. The division-leading Wolves finally put away the pesky fourth-seed Pontiac Juniors in six games Sunday night at Shawville’s Pontiac Silverdome. The Wolves pulled away early, en route to an 8-3 victory, 48 hours after winning game five of the semifinal series 6-3 at the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre.

Kurtis Leclaire also notched two goals for the Wolves, and Tanner Smith the other. Smith also had a huge shot block that led to the open net tally. Anthony Rea, Guillaume Coovi-Sirois, Dylan McNamara and Mathew Labrosse gave Shawville a series of leads. A four-goal surge in a 1:34 late in the first period saw the Wolves erase one-goal deficits twice. The Pontiacs then grabbed a 4-2 lead in the middle frame before Leclaire cut it in half with a powerplay goal. Matt Gagne made 29 saves in the Wolves goalcrease to earn the win. GAME 4: PONTIACS 4, WOLVES 3

GAME 3: WOLVES 6, PONTIACS 4

Colin Bradbury’s goal at the 16:30 mark of the third period snapped a 44 deadlock and propelled the Wolves to their 6-4 victory last Tuesday night. Bradbury jumped on a loose puck that Pontiacs goaltender Trevor McGee failed to corral, and stuffed it into the yawning cage to give Renfrew its first lead of the night. Luke Lapierre had the tying marker plus a game-clinching empty net goal for the Wolves, who overcame a 4-3 third-period deficit.

Julian Dumont’s breakaway goal in the second overtime period gave Shawville a dramatic 4-3 win in an 82-minute, 37-second thriller Feb. 27. It was Dumont’s second goal of the night. Dylan Scott and Danick Genest had other Shawville markers. Bailey Hein, Tanner Smith and Tyler MacDonald answered as the Wolves erased a 3-1 deficit. MacDonald tied the game 3-3 midway through the third period for the Wolves, who dominated at times but couldn’t push a game winner behind

Pontiac netminder Joshua Horner. The Wolves lost the services of Kurtis Leclaire with a game misconduct at the end of regulation time. GAME 5: WOLVES 6, PONTIACS 3

The Wolves got goals from defenceman Alex Campbell, Colin Bradbury and Sean Kyte in a 1:24 span to break a 1-1 tie late in the first period Friday night. They needed it all as the Pontiacs cut the gap to 4-3 in the second period. Luke Lapierre provided muchwelcomed insurance for the Renfrew side when he swept through Shawville defenders and snapped a shot past Horner with 8:01 remaining. Tyler MacDonald added an empty net marker. Teddy Suckow notched Renfrew’s first goal while Mathew Labrosse had all three goals for Shawville. Matt Gagne earned his third netminding win of the series. Horner took over for Shawville’s Trevor McGee in the third period. Although he had one assist on the scoresheet, the Wolves’ Issac Anderson made his presence felt all night, particularly on the penalty kill as the Wolves found themselves shorthanded eight times and allowed just one powerplay goal. Renfrew had just

GAME 6: WOLVES 8, PONTIACS 3

The Wolves got the word out quickly that they had no plans in going to a game seven. After getting a few early stops from goaltender Matt Gagne, the

Wolves jumped out to a 4-0 first-period lead, and upped it to 6-0 in the middle frame before Shawville got on the board. Sean Kyte had a hat trick, including a pair of goals in the first period to lead the Wolves. Luke Lapierre added two goals, and Scott Conroy, Teddy Suckow and Tanner Smith singles. Smith collected three assists, and Conroy and Issac Anderson two. See WOLVES, page 25

Sports - The University of Guelph Gryphons women captured the 2014 Ontario Universities Athletics (OUA) track and ďŹ eld championship Feb. 22 at the Toronto Track and Field Centre. That made it back-to-back banners for the Guelph school, partly through the efforts of a graduate of Renfrew Collegiate Institute. Former RCI Raider Sarah Dougherty got day two off to a fast start as she won the weight throw with a distance of 17.22 metres. Her nearest competitor, StefďŹ Stephenson of the Windsor Lancers, was a distant second at 16.79m, while Gryphons teammate Ashley Connell was third in 16.77m. The Gryphons women won 14 medals in Toronto, including three gold. Dougherty earned one, while Katelyn Ayers won the 1,000 and 600 metres. Dougherty also won gold in the weight throw at this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s McGill Team Challenge Jan. 24 in Montreal. Her throw of 17 metres at that event set a Guelph school record. This is Doughertyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third season with the Gryphons. Dougherty, of Castleford, is fourth in the CIS (Canadian Interuniversity Sport) national rankings in the weight throw, and eighth in the shot put. Her top performance in the shot put is 13.24 metres. Dougherty is ranked second in the OUA for weight throw and ďŹ fth in the shot put. By winning at the OUA championships, Dougherty also qualiďŹ ed for the CIS (Canadian Interuniversity Sport) championships March 6-8 at the University of Alberta. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m pretty excited to say the least, about my success this year in throwing,â&#x20AC;? Dougherty said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been blessed with good coaching, ďŹ rst in high school with Mr. John Scott, and now with the Gryphons,â&#x20AC;? she added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Being seeded with a high ranking

Signs of spring appearing at St. Joseph’s High School Abby Hall Jaguar Journal

Even though winter never seems to end, signs of spring are appearing at SJHS. The upcoming March Break will be a nice respite – and perhaps the last opportunity to get the most out of this cold weather! We began the Lenten season this past week on Ash Wednesday. The season will end on April 20, with Easter Sunday. During Lent, we are encouraged to give something up, like a favourite food or Facebook, in order to remove distractions and im-

prove all of our relationships, especially with God. Other ideas for Lent include giving up acts like gossiping, and instead, going out of your way to be kind to others. The Dominican Republic Team attended its final retreat last week. The evening was a time to reflect, debrief and discuss the experience, and the team is now prepared to present all aspects of this opportunity to local schools and parishes. We look forward to sharing the details of our excursion, and encouraging others to take part in this journey. Last week, SJHS began a new

initiative which involves helping others internationally. The school will be sponsoring a child through SOS Children’s Villages. This organization provides safe and loving homes for orphaned and forsaken children, while

proactively working to prevent child abandonment. The first fundraiser was a hat day held last Friday. Students were permitted to wear their hats inside the school in exchange for a donation. We look forward to supporting this new project.

Inspiring advocate for dialysis care planning more fundraising events for RVH Long before facing renal failure in his mid-thirties, Craig Dunbar knew the impact and importance of the dialysis unit at RVH in our community. A cousin of his was one of the first kidney disease patients ever to receive hemodialysis in Renfrew. Dunbar would sometimes visit during the life-saving treatments to keep him company. At the time, Dunbar took mental note that it was one of the friendliest and most compassionate medical environments he had ever witnessed. “The patients were all very well taken care of.” His own diagnosis of acute kidney disease, which resulted in him spending two years on dialysis at RVH and then another four years on a home dialysis regimen, only reinforced his earlier impressions.

There was nowhere else he wanted to be than at RVH. “It’s very homey; there’s such a good quality of care and great access to doctors,” he says confidently about his own experience. Hemodialysis treatments are required for patients with less than 15 per cent of kidney function. Their kidneys can no longer do their job of eliminating waste and excess fluids from the body. The patients in our dialysis unit need to be connected to a dialyzing machine for four hours every three days in order to live. Dunbar is no longer reliant on a machine to clean his kidneys. The Carp resident recently received a healthy donor kidney less than two months ago and is feeling fantastic. Now he’s ready to give some of his reclaimed vitality to the team who provided

Douglas celebrates Frosty Fun (Wards 1 and 2)

Community - The 39th Annual Douglas Frosty Fun had something for everyone! On Friday evening the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hockey tournament started, euchre was played at the Douglas Tavern, and a Movie Night was held in the gymnasium at St. Michaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s school. The members of the winning euchre team on Friday night were Robert Enright, Jamie Campbell and Steve Buch. The 50/50 was won by Ron Purcell. Saturday was a perfect Frosty Fun day. The weather co-operated all day and there were many people participating in the varied activities.The Kidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fun Zone in the St. Michaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gymnasium had something for everyone. Children had the opportunity to colour, make Olympic-themed crafts, have their faces painted and challenge themselves with curling and a hockey shoot-out. The winners of the colouring contest were Eden Belanger, Sydney Gale, Kailey Andrews, Tori Trainor and Mallory Gale. The inflatable obstacle course that was set up by Ry-Jâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Climbing Adventures proved to be a hit again this year. We received a very generous donation from Raymond Pilon to help off-set the cost of the rentals from Ry-Jâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Many spectators gathered at the rink to watch girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and novice hockey games. It was great to see the youngsters on the ice and to see so many fans around to cheer them on! The winner of the puck toss was Bronson Bailey. Pat McIntyre, and Dennis and Mark McEachen provided evening sleigh rides for a large number of children and their families. Euchre was played in the St. Michaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gym

and Cathy Dale, Carla and Rick Bielaskie tied Tom Holly, Eunice and Kevin Shulist with the most points. Cindy Lefebvre was the winner of the 50/50. Sunday proved to be another stellar day as things kicked off with a delicious breakfast cooked up by the Douglas Lionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Club. The menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s B final hockey game saw the Valley Skins defeat the Douglas Shamrocks. Brady Donohueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team defeated the Rouge Express to win the A final game. Earl Walsh and his team of horses provided sleigh rides for many children and their families. Jesse Welch and Brennan Trainor teamed up to win the tea boiling contest. Kevin, Lauren and Barry Enright were the winners at the euchre tables on Sunday. The 50/50 winner was Preston Cull. Sean Enright was the lucky winner of the flat screen TV featured in our Olympic raffle. Pat Gallagher won the Olympic prize pack and Darren Rowan won the Olympic jersey. The silent auction was a huge success thanks to the generosity of many local businesses and community members. The Admaston Bromley Recreation Committee (Wards 1 and 2) thanks all of those who supported the Frosty Fun through donations, volunteer participation, attendance and purchases made throughout the weekend. The members of the recreation committee would like to give special thanks to Mr. Bob Holmes for his help in organizing the euchre games for many years and to Mike Dillabough of Foodland in Eganville for cooking and delivering the beef for the dinner free of charge. We are already looking forward to the 40th annual Frosty Fun!

The moment that you died My heart was torn in two, One side filled with heartache, The other died with you. I often lie awake at night, When the world is fast asleep, And take a walk down memory lane, With tears upon my cheeks. Remembering you is easy, I do it everyday, But missing you is heartache That never goes away. I hold you tightly within my heart And there you will remain, Until some day we’ll be together again Forever loved & missed by Loving wife Gert Brydges

If we could visit Heaven, Even for a day, Maybe for a moment, The pain would go away. We’d put our arms around you, And whisper words so true, That living life without you, Is the hardest thing to do. No matter how we spend our days, No matter what we do, No morning dawns or evening falls, When we don’t think of you.

Greatly missed and loved forever, Kev, Con, Grandma Carson and Berta DEATH NOTICE
