Miller insists he won’t bad-mouth what has gone on during recent terms of council while stressing that more needs to be done to promote economic development. “We need to go ahead,” says Miller, who is serving his first term on council. In announcing his candidacy for the Oct. 27, 2014 municipal election,

the Carp native said the town needs a mayor with “considerable economic development experience to attract industry and commercial business to the town.” The long-time former Ottawa resident spent most of his teenage years in Renfrew with his foster parents. He returned with wife Sandra to live here 13 years ago. In seeking to become mayor, Mill-

If elected mayor, Miller says there would be no hierarchy or pyramid style, as now exists, with the mayor and council at the top, with senior management next, then town staff, and the general public only informed of decisions made.

Admaston-Bromley council shares Sunshine Coach concerns

Lucy Hass lucy.hass@metroland.com

News - Admaston-Bromley council has welcomed and appreciates a letter from the Sunshine Coach Service in Renfrew, reiterating council’s own concerns regarding funding of local transportation services. Under the current system the Champlain Local Health Integration Network (CLHIN) finances only the Carefor transportation services. “Everyone else is on their own,” said Mayor Raye-Anne Briscoe. “It’s making it very, very difficult (for the Sunshine Coach service.)” The numbers alone demand the issue be addressed, and soon. “We’re the oldest demographic population in eastern Ontario,” she observed. “We need to move these people efficiently.” And it’s an issue that requires attention beyond Renfrew and area. “I think we need to talk about it (funding models) in a Renfrew County fashion,” she said. She compared continual an-

dents and the business community to take action to mitigate the harm the ESA is doing to economic development, the county organized a workshop for business and municipal representatives to discuss how to deal with the “cumbersome and costly” legislation. At the workshop, county businesses, along with industry and farming organizations, outlined the harm and the costs the ESA imposes on their livelihoods and future prospects. The report stresses that Renfrew County wants the same outcome as the province, to protect species at risk and maintain biodiversity. The

difference with the county report is that it centres on the idea that the ESA can be improved to the benefit of all Ontarians and that it isn’t an “either /or” situation; rural economic development and protection for species at risk can co-exist. “It (ESA) has shortened the time available for harvesting to a point where it is becoming uneconomical to make the necessary investments in equipment and infrastructure that are required to maintain current employment levels,” said Kris Heideman, vice-president of Lavern Heideman & Sons Limited, a forest service company near Eganville.

“Jobs have already been lost because of this legislation. More jobs will continue to be lost. All of this is occurring without proof we are providing any benefit to the intended species,” he added. “There needs to be an open and transparent socio-economic impact assessment on any legislation that threatens Ontario’s renewable timber supply.” In many situations, industry representatives have commented that the ESA duplicates the requirements of existing Acts, such as the Ontario Planning Act, and specific Forest Management Plans.

The question, she said, is whether or not the current arrangement gives residents “the best bang for their buck.” Briscoe explained how the hospital must now use Carefor’s transportation services or they have to take it out of their own budget. There was also a misunderstanding in the early planning, she added, as many people thought Carefor was going to be coordinating source, not the sole transportation provider. Councillor Michael Donohue agreed the transportation issue should be forwarded to county council for follow-up. He said the western world has learned that the cheapest way to care for seniors is to keep people in their own homes. Providing efficient transportation services is a key part of achieving that goal. “If this has gone to the county, they will follow through,” he said, noting Sunshine Coach executive

RVH gets green light for $9.6 million expansion News - The Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care has granted ďŹ nal approval for capital funding of $9,627,900 towards the cost of Renfrew Victoria Hospital’s expansion. “We are thrilled to be over the ďŹ nal hurdle in the process. This project represents the largest ever investment in RVH. The expansion and revitalization of our hospital will ensure the continued delivery of highquality health care now and in the future,â€? says Andy Boldt, RVH board chair, adding, “The project is the culmination of tremendous foresight, a very strong management/medical team and a solid ďŹ nancial base. These are the dividends you can realize with a wellsupported hospital.â€? “On behalf of our hospital and most importantly our patients and their families,â€? Randy Penney, president and CEO of Renfrew Victoria Hospital, states: “I would like to thank the Premier of Ontario and the Minister of Health for this very signiďŹ cant investment in our hospital.â€? The expansion plans include a 23,000-square-foot addition behind the emergency department, which will include a hemodialysis treatment area of 6,000 square feet — doubling the current space. Patients, staff and physicians will beneďŹ t from enhanced space and privacy, window views from every bed during their four-hour treatments, and close proximity to a new centralized nursing station for all dialysis stations. In addition to the ability to provide 5,616 more treatments per year, the expansion will consolidate all of the chronic kidney disease services — renal insufďŹ ciency clinic, chronic disease education and

management clinics, diabetes education, etc. — in a single area of the RVH campus, improving quality of care and efďŹ ciency. These services will be located on the second oor of the new centre. The hospital’s pharmacy will also be relocated to the second oor of the expansion, providing the capacity needed to implement unit dose packaging for improved medication safety and efďŹ ciency. The new addition will be attached and connected to the existing hospital building by hallways on both levels, and will offer a direct, convenient entrance for dialysis patients from the back parking lot. Once completed, the expansion project will free up vacated space to physically expand other areas of care, for example, expanded ambulatory care clinics, which saw more than 14,000 visits in 2012-2013. Cancer and surgical patients will beneďŹ t from a relocated and expanded systemic care and medical day unit. Renovations on second and third oor nursing units, which are original 1920 design, will create improved patient rooms and washrooms and increase patient safety and infection control. “As our community knows, our board, staff and physicians have been preparing for this investment for some time. In phase one, which was started last fall, we witnessed major infrastructure upgrades including signiďŹ cant electrical, water, and sewer enhancements. As well, major additions were made to our parking facilities to handle the expansion,â€? says Penney. All of the work in phase one positioned RVH ideally for this major investment by the Ministry of Health. In the ďŹ nal phase, the

Campbell couple, Eady and Burwell inducted into wall of fame steve.newman@metroland.com

News - Many members of the agricultural community bring to the world a hard-working ethic, determination and co-operative spirit. Fine examples within Renfrew County are the four people inducted into the Renfrew County Agricultural Wall of Fame during a special ceremony Feb. 28 at the Renfrew Armouries. Traditionally, the ceremony is held every three years to recognize three inductees. That rule was flexibly adopted, as it has been before, for the induction of the couple of David and Donna Campbell of Whitewater Region Township, Norm Eady of Horton and Murray Burwell of AdmastonBromley before an appreciative crowd of more than 150. Brian Hamilton, who works for the Renfrew County Federation of Agriculture and chairs the county’s wall of fame committee, said this was a special night for special individuals. Elected officials present to offer congratulations, anecdotes and certificates included MPP John Yakabuski, County Warden Peter Emon, Whitewater Mayor Jim Labow and Horton Mayor Don Eady. Yakabuski said it’s wonderful that the wall of fame – which has made 45 inductions since its inaugural ceremony in 1995 – continues to recognize people who have made major contributions “in this proud industry, in this proud heritage.� As the evening’s first inductee, Murray Burwell was recognized for a long list of contributions, among them 15 years as a 4-H leader, 27 years as a member and exhibitor of the Renfrew County soil and crop committee, and more than 50 years involvement with beef, poultry, sheep and hogs on the farm. Burwell’s nomination was sponsored by the Cobden Agricultural Society and Renfrew County Plowmen’s Association. Leaving school at age 14 to help his ailing father on the Osceola farm, Burwell re-

mained committed to the farm (that was moved to Barr Line in 1949) and other aspects of the agricultural community. A Renfrew Victoria Hospital board member for 25 years, he was also a Bromley councillor for eight years. Alluding to all four inductees, MPP Yakabuski said there’s “so much effort put back to make the community better for all of us.� Addressing the first inductee of the evening, he added, “Murray’s record of public service is a stellar one.� Burwell, who was accompanied by wife Marie, also had other family members present, including children Doug, Brian and Ann. The next inductee was Eady, a life-long Horton resident who was born on the family farm. Eady’s list of many agricultural contributions include 15 years as a Horton deadstock evaluator, helping with World Food Grain Bank projects for 12 years, three terms as president of the Renfrew County Plowmen’s Association, and 30 years as a Renfrew County Federation of Agriculture director. As a farmer, Eady says one of his proudest moments was his 1960s crop production of more than 100 bushels of oats per acre. Unable to speak loud enough for the crowd to hear him, because of Parkinson’s Disease, his statement of appreciation was read by his wife, Willis. In thanking the plowmen’s association and local chapter of the federation of agriculture for the nomination, his statement said, “It has been wonderful serving all the organizations and committees. I would encourage everyone to get involved in things that they are truly passionate about. If you live your life with conviction, the rest will follow you.� Eady family members at the induction included the inductee’s children, Erin and Rhea. The final induction was for Donna and David Campbell whose accomplishments were summarized by David McGonegal, president of the

Renfrew County Cattlemen’s Association. Donna’s accomplishments are perhaps headed by her tenure as secretary-treasurer of the Renfrew County Federation of Agriculture since 1987. Her other activities have included organizing the trucking of hay donations to droughtstricken western Canada in 2002, similar work in 2012 to co-ordinate hay shipments to drought-ravaged Renfrew County, and committee duties for county plowing matches and the plowmen’s association. David’s accomplishments included his long tenure as a Renfrew County Federation of Agriculture director, including presidencies in 1994-98 and 2007-08; directorship with the red meat program committee in the 1990s, and directorships for a wide variety of agricultural organizations. Donna mentioned to the crowd that David doesn’t like to speak in public, but Donna told him he needed to this time.

Old Deep River school stage bought for Horton community centre Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

The stage had to be cut into three pieces, for transportation, and then put back together. Nevertheless, council members are satisďŹ ed with Horton Township’s $3,000 purchase of a used stage from the former T.W. Morison Public School. The Deep River school was home to kindergarten through Grade 6 students until its closure by the Renfrew County District School Board in 2011. In 2012, Deep River devel-

Taxes in arrears Taxes in arrears frequently are higher at the start of the year, and that’s no exception in Horton Township. Taxes in arrears are “starting to climb� slightly, says treasurer Jennifer Barr. As of Feb. 28, 2014, taxes in arrears stood at $357,358, or 9.49 per cent of the previous year’s total tax levy. “I’d certainly like to see it stay under 10 per cent,� said Mayor Don Eady. For the previous three years, Horton’s late-February taxes in arrears were: 2013 – $320,650 (9.38 per cent); 2012 – $309,915 (9.37 per cent); and 2011 – $412,377 (12.76 per cent).

oper Dieter von Fintel purchased the 37,000-square-foot building, which he is now looking to turn into condominiums. The former school stage has been sold to Horton Township for its expanded community centre. Recreation committee members Dave Bennett, Coun. Bob Kingsbury and Coun. Glen Campbell visited Deep River for an inspection before the recreation committee recommended purchasing the stage. The stage, of about 16-by24 feet, had to be cut to permit its removal from the old

school building. The stage is scheduled to be at the Horton Community Centre this week. The cost is very reasonable, according to Horton Mayor Don Eady, who said the stage’s curtains alone could be worth about $3,500. The purchase includes the hardwood stage, stage doors, curtains, trolleys and a pulldown projection screen for PowerPoint presentations. Expansion of the community centre must be completed by the end of March, to meet conditions of the project’s federal-government grant.

St. Joseph’s High School tops in Fraser Institute ranking Sta

News - St. Joseph’s Catholic High School in Renfrew has earned top honours as top secondary school in Renfrew County based on The Fraser Institute’s latest Report Card on Ontario’s Secondary Schools. St. Joseph’s got a rating of 7.5 out of 10 to place 133rd out of 740 schools in Ontario. Mackenzie Community School in Deep River was the next nearest Renfrew County school at 183rd spot. It’s rating was 7.2 out of 10. Third place in the county went to Bishop Smith Catholic High School in Pembroke whose rating of 7.1/10 placed it 208. Arnprior and District High School and Renfrew Collegiate tied in the

middle of the pack with 6.1 rating to place 390th out of 740 schools. The bottom two schools in Renfrew County were Fellowes High School in Pembroke (4.7 score for 590th place) and Opeongo High School (3.0 rating to place 698th). The report ranks 740 public and Catholic schools (and a small number of private schools) based on seven academic indicators using data from the annual province-wide tests of literacy and math managed by Ontario’s Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO). It spotlights special needs and ESL percentages in each school, and helps parents and educators compare schools by showing which schools have improved and which schools have fallen behind.

This information, which is difficult to find anywhere else, also demonstrates how perceived barriers to learning (low parental income, for example) are often overcome. The Fraser Institute is an independent Canadian public policy research and educational organization with offices in Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, and Montreal and ties to a global network of 86 think-tanks. Its mission is to measure, study, and communicate the impact of competitive markets and government intervention on the welfare of individuals. To protect the institute’s independence, it does not accept grants from governments or contracts for research. For more information, people can visit www.compareschoolrankings.org

EDITORIAL

Empower women and we all win Opinion - Last week was International Women’s Week, a chance to focus on the role of women in our society. The theme for the March 8 celebration was Equality for Women is Progress for All. According to Ontario’s Minister Responsible for Women’s Issues Teresa Pirruza, advances have been made towards full equality around the world and in Ontario. “As Minister Responsible for Women’s Issues, I am proud that for 30 years the directorate has played an important role in effecting and influencing change for women here in Ontario,” she said. “We have worked to champion the achievements and leadership of women across the province.” But she is realistic that much work remains to be done. “While we can acknowledge with certainty the progress that has been made in having a female premier, barriers remain that prevent more women from becoming leaders. “We must work together to tear those barriers down,” Pirruza said. “Three decades after the creation of the Ontario Women’s Directorate, there is visible progress and we will continue to work towards full equality for women.” Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant also took the opportunity to address the issue of equality for women from the federal perspective. Her news release also cited statistics regarding the advancement of women. Gallant described International Women’s Day as a chance to celebrate the economic and social contributions “by female owners of small and medium-sized enterprises in our city and towns.”

The federal theme of the week was Strong Women. Strong Canada. Canadian Women – Creating Jobs One Business at a Time. Gallant said the theme highlights the important role played by women entrepreneurs in the Canadian economy. She also noted that 15.6 per cent of small and medium-sized businesses in Canada are majority-owned by women, employing over 1.5 million Canadians, and contributing an estimated $148 billion to the Canadian economy annually. She also recognized federal achievements since 2007 and credited the government of Canada with providing more than $53 million in funding for projects that specifically focus on improving women’s economic security and prosperity, including over $9 million for projects which aid and support women’s entrepreneurship. Renfrew and area is blessed with many dedicated businesswomen, serving and strengthening our community through their contributions to the economy. But Women’s Day must look beyond business achievement and recognize all women for the important role they play as nurses, educators, caregivers and more. Foremost, women must be applauded for the vital role they play in raising kind, compassionate and hard-working children who will be able to tackle the challenges of the future with wisdom, empathy and a desire to see the best in others, regardless of gender or background. The next generation will need to master the critical art of co-operation, not lean on divisiveness and narrow nastiness to bully its way to power. That is how we will build a better world.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Thanks to our local fire departments To the editor Opinion - In the early morning of Monday, March 3 a fire broke out in a large workshop adjacent to a residence in Admaston-Bromley Township. Within minutes of the 911 call the fire responders arrived and sprayed the house down to prevent the fire from spreading. If not for the incredibly fast and professional efforts by the Renfrew and Douglas fire crews,

the house, too, would have been lost. Thanks to fire staff and volunteers for your commitment to the community and your excellence in the execution of your duties. We are all blessed to have such dedicated fire fighters serving our area. Without your devotion our lives would have been forever changed. The Deshane Family Admaston-Bromley Township

Harper Conservatives earn Teddy award for wasting taxpayer dollars Canadian Taxpayers Federation

Opinion - The Canadian Taxpayers Federation (CTF) held its 16th annual “Teddy” Waste Awards ceremony, celebrating the best of the worst in government waste. Joining the CTF’s pig mascot Porky the Waste Hater was CTF Federal Director Gregory Thomas in his third year as master of ceremonies, and talented event hostess Nakisa. The gala awards event took place Parliament Hill at the Charles Lynch Press Conference Theatre. The Teddy, the pig-shaped award given annually by the CTF to government’s worst waste offenders, is named for Ted Weatherill, a former federal appointee who was turfed in 1999 for submitting an imaginative collection of sketchy expense claims, including a $700 lunch for two. The CTF hosts the Teddy awards each year

during red-carpet season to highlight waste and malfeasance at the national, provincial and local level. “Sometimes taxpayers get the last laugh on crooked politicians and free-spending bureaucrats,” said Thomas. “Sometimes a Teddy award can be the beginning of the end for a sad story of government waste.” This year’s federal Teddy winner: Employment and Social Development Canada. “If you jumped from your sofa during the Stanley Cup Playoffs in 2013 to alert your unemployed teenager about the fabulous new $15,000 Canada Jobs Grant, you were in for a sad surprise. Despite $2.5 million in taxpayer-funded advertising – such as those slick TV commercials during the games – the Canada Jobs Grant didn’t exist, and still doesn’t,” Thomas said. “Maybe by the time the 2014 playoffs roll around the government will reach

a deal with the provinces and Canada’s employers, and bring the Canada Jobs Grant into existence.” The provincial Teddy winner: Former Toronto Pan-Am Games CEO Ian Troop. After winning the provincial Teddy two years in a row, Alberta put forward a strong effort this past year, spending $45,000 to send Premier Alison Redford and an aide first class to South Africa for Nelson Mandela’s funeral. Nova Scotia failed miserably to make the Teddy grade when its Premier Stephen McNeil expensed only $946.44 for the same trip. “Riding to Alberta’s rescue in 2014 was fired CEO of Toronto’s 2016 Pan-American Games. Not only is the $2.5 billion event already $1.1 billion over budget, Troop added insult to injury, collecting $552,065 in annual salary while expensing 91 cents for parking and $8,500 for a lavish party in Mexico,” said Thomas.

The local Teddy winner: Vancouver’s TransLink. Vancouver’s accident and waste-prone regional transit authority (TransLink) stepped in it once again this past year, shelling out $4.5 million for a parking lot with a $2 toll that nobody ever uses. The CBC was able to identify a single user who chose the pricey lot because he knows his vehicle “will never get scratched.” Lifetime achievement Teddy: The Senate of Canada. With one former senator finishing off a jail term for fraud, another former senator and a suspended senator facing criminal charges, two suspended senators under police investigation, and dozens more dragging their feet on the auditor general’s investigation of their spending, CTF supporters across the country gave the issue some sober second thought, and gave the Senate a Lifetime Achievement Teddy.

Ensyn and New Hamphire hospital sign RFO Biofuel supply agreement

Initial supply to come from Renfrew facility

News - Ensyn Fuels, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Ensyn Corporation has signed a contract with Memorial Hospital of North Conway, New Hampshire for the supply of RFO, Ensyn’s advanced cellulosic biofuel. Ensyn’s RFO, produced from forest residues, will be used by the hospital as a heating fuel, replacing petroleumbased fuels. This initiative will lower Memorial’s environmental footprint and will provide it with net cost savings. Under the contract signed with Memorial, Ensyn Fuels will provide approximately 300,000 gallons/year of RFO for a renewable term of five years, commencing deliveries as early as April 2014. Adoption of Ensyn’s RFO will allow Memorial to convert its entire heating requirements from petroleum fuels to Ensyn’s renewable fuel. This will reduce the hospital’s greenhouse gases from heating

fuels by approximately 85 per cent and total air emissions by approximately 75 per cent. In addition, adoption of Ensyn’s RFO will provide Memorial with substantial cost savings. Memorial will be able to use its existing boilers to combust the new fuel. Ensyn Fuels will supply the onsite tankage and the RFO delivery system to the boiler. Ensyn Fuels will initially supply RFO to the hospital from its production facility in Renfrew. This plant has recently been qualified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under the U.S. .Renewable Fuel Standards (RFS2) program. Ensyn expects that sales of RFO from this facility to Memorial will qualify for Renewable Identification Numbers (RINs) under the RFS2 program, enhancing contract economics. This contract will be one of Ensyn Fuels’ first contracts for RFS2-eligible heating oil in the U.S. under the recently finalized EPA RFS2 Heating Oil rule. Ensyn companies have been operating commercially for over 25 years and their RTP®

technology has produced over 37 million gallons of fuels and chemicals from wood residues. While commercial production to-date has been focused on heating fuels and chemicals for the food industry, Ensyn is now expanding production to serve a broader base of biofuel clients and applications. The contract with Memorial Hospital is one of the first new contracts to be signed committing production from Ensyn’s expanding production capacity and the first supply contract to be signed with a hospital. “This is one of our first contracts related to the supply of RFO from our expanded production capacity,” said Dr. Robert Graham, Ensyn’s chairman and CEO. “We are pleased that Memorial Hospital, with its dedication to the environment along with excellence in health care, will help initiate the roll-out,” he said. “Memorial is proud to play a pioneering role as an earlyadopter in Ensyn’s developing biofuels business,” said Scott McKinnon, CEO and president of Memorial Hospital. “The Ensyn Fuels agreement provides the hospital

with a lower environmental footprint, operating cost savings, no net capital costs and we can use the same boiler equipment we have now – and switch back later to conventional fuels if we wish. This provides us with tremendous fuel optionality,” he said. Ensyn is a producer of advanced cellulosic biofuels and is increasing production

capacity of RFO, its principal biofuel product, to meet demand. RFO is a renewable heating fuel and is also a refinery feedstock for the production of transportation fuels. Ensyn is expanding capacity at its existing facility in Renfrew, and is developing projects in the U.S. and Brazil. Ensyn’s RTP® technol-

ogy has produced over 37 million gallons of RFO since 1989, dedicated primarily to chemicals and heating fuels; Ensyn is now increasing production in conjunction with key strategic relationships including UOP, a Honeywell company; Chevron Technology Ventures; Fibria Celulose (Brazil), and Felda Palm Industries (Malaysia).

Horton to seek tenders for computer, software support Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

Council has voted to seek tenders for maintenance of the township’s computers and software programs. A few years ago, Horton had an agreement with Tenent Computer Group in Renfrew. This company was later taken over

by a Pembroke firm, which eventually discontinued the service and passed the contract down to a former employee. That person still provides the service, but moved to Toronto about two years ago. This results in repairs being done remotely. This arrangement has also resulted in

some service delays. Therefore, the township is now seeking tenders for computer and software support. Horton’s cost for that support in 2013 was $9,799.48, including taxes and based on an hourly rate of $70. Going to tender may result in higher costs, but more timely support, say Horton officials.

MP Gallant hails wireless choice, hosts Courageous Companions nally bring wireless coverage, and access to the digital age, to all of Renfrew-NipissingPembroke,� said Gallant. “The Government of Canada’s wireless policy is designed to focus on Canadian wireless consumers first, and provide them with better prices and better service. Canadians have been clear that they want more choice, lower prices, and better service in our wireless industry,� said a news release from Gallant. “With this auction establishing a fourth wireless player in every region of the country, with access to high quality spectrum, the government believes now that it has achieved its goal,� she said. The 700 MHz commercial wireless spectrum auction began Jan. 14, ended Feb. 13 and total revenue generated from the 700 MHz auction is $5.3 billion – the highest return ever for a wireless auction in Canada. COMPANIONS HOSTED

MP Gallant hosted Courageous Companions Canada on Parliament Hill, marking

placement of their 100 PTSD service dog, Elijah. The dog was named Elijah to honour deceased Manitoba MLA Elijah Harper who was very supportive of the program. The dogs are trained by Manitoba Search and Rescue (MSAR), an independent, non-governmental Search and Rescue Association with Aboriginal leadership. A donation to Courageous Companions will fund 22 service dogs, In a separate news release MP Gallant noted the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) has expanded its Family Information Line service to 24 hours a day, seven days a week, “Over the past weeks I have heard from a number of military spouses, who are in distress over the Operational Stress Injuries (OSI’s) their Canadian Armed Forces Member has been suffering from. Some have said they need help, too, but were not aware of the resources in place especially for them,� said MP Gallant. “The work that the Family Information Line does is absolutely essential to ensuring

that families have the support they need when they need it.� For more information, and for a link to the Operation Stress Injury Social Support (OSISS) website, visit http:// cherylgallant.com/mentalhealth-operational-stress/. KEY PILLARS

MP Gallant rose in the House of Commons recently to highlight federal support of two key pillars of Innova-

tion Valley North – AECL and CFB Petawawa. A news release from the MP’s office said Innovation Valley North is MP Gallant’s vision to bring jobs and prosperity to the Upper Ottawa Valley. “Our government’s defence procurement strategy is a perfect fit with Innovation Valley North. Innovation Valley North, in addition to developing synergy between existing Ottawa Valley employers,

looks to build on AECL as well as CFB Petawawa, to stimulate local employment by creating a local supply chain,� Gallant said. She also added: “The future is nuclear, for reliable, economic, green-house gasfree electricity, brought to you by the 70,000 Canadians that are employed in the Canadian nuclear industry, including the close to 3,000 people employed at the Chalk River Laboratories of AECL.�

News items from the office of Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant. MP Cheryl Gallant hails results of the recent 700 Megahertz (MHz) wireless spectrum auction. The auction results featured 97 licences being awarded to 8 Canadian companies nationwide. “The results of the wireless auction is excellent news for all of Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke,� said Gallant. “With a fourth major carrier purchasing some of the 700 MHz spectrum in eastern Ontario, residents can look forward to increased and better service with better prices in the near future.� The 700 MHz spectrum which was auctioned off was formerly used for analog television signals. Due to its lower frequency, it is able to carry signals at a higher quality over a longer range, making it ideal for providing wireless coverage to rural areas. “Analog TV signals were carried to all corners of the Upper Ottawa Valley by the 700 MHz spectrum. The auction of the 700 MHz range could fi-

News - Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant recognized economic contributions made by local female entrepreneurs in the lead-up to International Women’s Day Saturday, March 8. “Small and medium-sized businesses are the main source of jobs and economic growth in our communities,” said Gallant. “On International Women’s Day 2014, we celebrate the economic and social contributions by female owners of small and medium-sized enterprises in our city and towns.” In the south end of the riding, Sherri Lynn Shalla, owner of McPhail and Perkins Furniture of Renfrew, and Carolyn Jakes, former president of the Calabogie and Area Business Association (CABA), were praised by Gallant for contributing greatly to the local economy and to their communities. The MP noted that McPhail and Perkins Furniture was recently honoured with a Retailer’s Readers’ Choice Diamond Award, awarded by The Renfrew Mercury, for best furniture store. Gallant praised Jakes for her work with the Calabogie and Area Business Association. The Calabogie and Area Business Association (CABA) is a proactive association with a mandate of promoting the endeavours of the local business community. In the process of CABA realizing its goals, the community benefits enormously. With over 100 members across Greater Madawaska, the CABA support local businesses, community events such as the Lions Club Christmas Parade and the Firefighters Canada Day Celebrations among others. CABA is a proactive association with a mandate of promoting the endeavours of the local business community. International Women’s Day was established by Canada in 1977, following a United Nations resolution calling on member states to proclaim a day for women’s rights and international peace. The theme of International Women’s Week 2014 is Strong Women. Strong Canada. Canadian Women – Creating Jobs One Business at a Time. The theme seeks to highlight the important role played by women entrepreneurs in the Canadian economy. A total of 15.6 per cent of small and medium-sized businesses in Canada are majority-owned by women, employing over 1.5 million Canadians, and contributing an estimated $148 billion to the Canadian economy annually. Since 2007, the Government of Canada has provided more than $53 million in funding for projects that specifically focus on improving women’s economic security and prosperity, including over $9 million in support of women’s entrepreneurship.

It was her second time in three years to advance in homecraft competition to the provincial finals. Yolkowskie won the youth category at the 2013 Renfrew Fair. She won again at November’s district finals in Lanark County against 11 other entries. A sample of her winning recipe for the 15-district Ontario final is held by Katrina Crozier, president of the Renfrew Fair homecraft division.

In spite of Depression there were still many treats to be had Lifestyle Goodness knows we were reminded often enough that there was a Depression on! Just ask for something as simple as a pair of white stockings, or a new hair ribbon, and you were told once again of the scarcity of money. “There is no money for such frivolities!” And how often were we told “Eat every last scrap on your plate.” Yes, wasting food was a sin, and if it cost money, and wasn’t absolutely necessary, your chances of getting what you asked for were pretty slim indeed. And yet, we had what I called treats aplenty back in the 1930s. When the nights were bitterly cold, with the wind howling outside rattling the windows, Mother could always come up with something that took the chill out of the old log house. Often it was a popper full of corn, laced with a jug of melted butter. Sometimes it was a treat that my sister Audrey said took the place of a good dose of Epsom salts, but to me it was delicious. And if I had stopped to think about it, it

wasn’t something handed out willy-nilly ... in fact, we only got it in the dead of winter. It was a big glass of molasses, water and a heaping tablespoon of baking soda. It fizzed up, often pouring out of the glass, and I considered it a real treat, which pleased Mother. It was never handed out on a school night, of course, because the result of this special treat was many trips to the outside privy! My sister Audrey called it “our winter clean out,” but to me, it was a treat. And then there was oven toast. How I loved oven toast. It didn’t come out looking like the toast made on top of the stove, over hot coals. Every one of us considered it a special treat, and when Mother asked, “who would like a piece of oven toast?” we all squealed with anticipation. Only Mother could turn out oven toast the way I like it. She would lay out slices of thick homemade bread on the bake table, lavish butter on both sides, put a wire rack over a couple deep pie plates, put the bread in rows on the rack, plug in another block of wood into the stove, and put

everything into the hot oven. The butter-saturated bread would crisp to a light golden brown, and I thought it was the most delicious treat Mother ever invented, breaking the slices into pieces and gobbling it up with butter running down my fingers. The trick, Mother said, was not to take it out of the oven until it was crisp, but not letting it brown. She knew just how to manage it all in right order, and there wasn’t, in my mind, a more delicious before-bed treat than oven toast. There always seemed to be lots of home-made bread at our house. Mother baked once or twice a week, and we five kids were forever fighting over who got the crusts at either end of the loaf. It got to the point where Mother had us draw straws for this treat.

And a special bedtime treat was a thick slice of homemade bread, buttered of course, and then spread with a layer of brown sugar with cinnamon sprinkled on top. I have no idea why she did it, but Mother always cut the slices into little squares before piling them on a dinner plate in the middle of the table, moving the sugar bowl and spoon holder to make room. The whole pile would vanish in minutes, and we would head off to bed with sugarfilled stomachs and a feeling of complete joy. My sister Audrey became an expert at making fudge. No one could talk to her when she was at the job. I would sit at the table and listen to her slap the big wood spoon around the pot which was inside another pot of cold water. It had to be just the right consistency before she poured

off with buttered fingers and sucked the taffy like we would a sucker bought at Briscoe’s General Store! I shared a special treat with my beloved sister Audrey, that no one else in the family seemed to relish. When a jar of preserved plums would be brought up from the dug-out cellar for a meal, and the pits were all that were left in the little fruit nappies around the table, Audrey would get out the breadboard, and the little tack-hammer, and she’d break open the pits freeing the pulp from inside. We would wait until all the pits had been smashed open, and then Audrey and I would move to the creton couch near the Findlay Oval, and between us, we’d devour the fruit nappy of pits as if they were store-bought candy! Even my hateful brother Emerson’s prediction that eventually the pits would sprout and grow a plum shrub in my stomach didn’t take away my love of plum pits! Those long ago days of the Depression years were years of the most simple pleasures, and treats free of an outlay of money, and long before cholesterol was part of our vocabulary.

it into a buttered pie plate and left to chill. When she wasn’t looking, I would go out to the summer kitchen where the pie plate of fudge was sitting, and press my finger into it, just to make sure it was hardening. If Audrey noticed the finger marks, she said nothing. That night, when we were sitting around the old pine table, each engrossed in his own activity, Audrey would cut the fudge into little squares, and dole them out like they were chunks of gold. Once the maple syrup season started, and Mother retrieved a pot of sap from the big flat pan boiling in the bush, simmering it down to a right thickness, we had “taffy on snow,” a special treat on a Saturday night, or Sunday afternoon. Mother of course, made sure the snow brought in from outside was nowhere near the barn yard, and well away from the house. Heaven forbid that a stray animal had put a foot within a county mile of the snow my brother brought in in the big roast pan! And the hot syrup would be drizzled on the fresh snow, let harden, and then we lifted it

TOASTMASTERS

Contest Participants are, from left, Ed Nicholson, Brad Dota, Lenore Whelan, Anne Doyle, Maria Thompson, Lynne Zander, Fran Watson, Fred Schuck, Table Topics Contest Chair Francine Fortin and International Contest Chair Phil Godon.

Fred Schuck wins again in Toastmasters competition Toastmasters

Toastmasters held their Spring Area Contest on Saturday, March 1 with contestants from the area Toastmasters Clubs – Chalk River, Pembroke, Renfrew, Arnprior and Valley Vintage Advanced. Since District 61 is bilingual, there was a French component to this contest with Lynne

Zander coming away as winner of the French International Speech Contest, with her speech Equilibre. Fred Schuck , resident of Arnprior and member of Renfrew Toastmasters, continued his winning ways and moves on to the Division B International Speech Contest to be held in Ottawa on Saturday, March 22 at the John G. Mlacak Community

Centre, 2500 Campeau Dr. at 9 a.m. The first runner up was Ed Nicholson from the Chalk River Labs Club. Nicholson will be eligible to compete at the contest should Schuck be unavailable. Winners from the Division B Contest will move forward to the District International Speech Contest to be held at Chateau Montebello the

weekend of April 25 to 27, and the winner from that contest will go on to the International Contest being held in Kuala Lampur in August 2014. The Table Topics Contest was won by Ed Nicholson and he will move forward to compete at the Division level. In second place was Lenore Whelan, who is a member of both the Arnprior Club and Valley Vintage Ad-

vanced Toastmasters. Fran Watson, who was competing as a member of the Pembroke & Area Toastmasters Club took third place. Watson is also a member of Renfrew Toastmasters and Valley Vintage Advanced Toastmasters. In a regular Toastmasters meeting, each person has a different topic, but usually on the theme of the meeting. In a Table

Topics Contest the contestants are all asked to speak on the same topic. They are removed from the room and enter one at a time. The question for this contest was: “If you were to move to another country, what country would it be and why?” Contestants are judged on a number of categories such as speech development, effectiveness,

audience response, appearance and use of body language, use of speaking area, voice flexibility and volume, appropriateness of answer and correctness of grammar, pronunciation, and word selection. To find out more about a club in your area you can go to http://www. tm61.org/eng/findClub/ search.asp or call Fran at 613-649-2950.

The Broken Chain We little knew that morning that God was going to call your name. In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone, For part of us went with you, the day God called you home. You left us peaceful memories, your love is still our guide; And though we cannot see you, you are always at our side. Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same; But as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane I would walk right up to Heaven and bring you back again No farewell words were spoken, No time to say ‘goodbye’ You were gone before I knew it and only God knows why My heart still aches in sadness and secret tears will ow What it meant to love you – No one can ever know But now I know you want me to mourn for you no more To remember all the happy times life still has much in store Since you’ll never be forgotten I pledge to you today – A hallowed place within my heart is where you’ll always stay

IN MEMORIAM

Forever loved & missed Dad, Mom, Donna, Darla & family

It’s been a year since you’ve been gone and I still say “we� whenever I talk to someone. I see you in my dreams every night and I’m so happy to have the memories to comfort me. I will always miss your face, your smile, your voice and your touch. I’m so grateful for the 17 years we spent together, you’ve taught me so much. Not sure if anyone understands what we meant to each other and what I’ve lost, but my comfort is knowing that one day we will be together again.

Love Carol always

Reid recognized for 50 years as soil and crop director Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

Fifty years of service is a special landmark that few people reach, but David Reid has. The Admaston-Bromley farmer, who says he retired about 13 years ago, was saluted at the 81st Renfrew County Seed, Forage and Agri-business Show for five decades as a director with the Renfrew County Soil and Crop Improvement Association. His affiliation with the local organization goes back even longer, says Reid, who “sort of� retired from farming in 2001 but keeps busy in the agricultural community. “It’s so friendly,� says Reid, 76. “And everyone tries to help everyone out, and discuss our successes and our problems.� As a full-time farmer, he had 50 head of dairy cattle and a variety of cash crops over the years, including oats, barley, corn, wheat, hay and sunflower seeds. He continues to be a regular exhibitor at the seed and forage show, and at the Renfrew Fair, in addition to his contributions as a soil-and-crop association director. Perhaps best of all, he says he has enjoyed the variety of crop experiments and friendships developed over the years. “He’s agriculture to the core,� says Bob Johnston, president of the Renfrew County Federation of Agriculture and member of the local soil and crop association. Reid was first elected a soil-and-crop director in 1964, but in 1967 president Howard Robinson had to resign due to illness, and Reid became president for the remainder of the year. It was a busy time in the

Soup’s on! Henny Menkhorst and Marja VanLindenberg are two of seventeen members of the Hebron Christian Reform Church who have volunteered to make soup and buns for lunch at the Golden Age Activity Centre. Every Wednesday, a new type of soup will be available for a $2.50 donation to the centre.

1960s for the association, including the seed and forage show that often attracted 135 exhibits. This year there were 91, including 40 in the junior classes. Over the years, Reid has participated in many crop demonstrations and a wide variety of crop trials. He has also passed on his love of farming to family members, as attested by the presence of grandchildren Grace, Molly and Olivia among the 2014 show’s winning exhibitors. For Reid’s contributions, the local soil and crop association presented him with a certificate of service and an engraved golden soil probe, and donated $100 in his name to the Admaston-Bromley food grain project. Reid also received a watch from Dekalb, the company he worked for as a seed salesman for several years. MAJOR AWARDS

Other members of the farming community shared the spotlight at the March 6 show in the Renfrew Armouries. This year’s Renfrew County Soil and Crop Award of Merit went to Lynn Clelland of Admaston-Bromley for her dedication and service to 4-H, the Balsam Hill-Horton Women’s Institute, the Farm Safety Association and her community. Soil and crop’s long-time service award went to Glen Peever of Admaston-Bromley, while Gerald Rollins of Snake River received the soil-conservation sign for continued efforts in soil and water conservation.

Sweets to save species At the kindergarten bake sale to raise money for the World Wildlife Fund at Queen Elizabeth Public School are, from left, Clara Di Paolo, Seth Beimers, Jackson Bates and James Dellaire. The children have been learning about endangered species and as one student observed, “Some people think it’s okay to destroy their world.” This group clearly disagrees and all of the items for sale were baked and donated by the kindergarten students and their families.

STEVE NEWMAN/METROLANFD

Members of Queen Elizabeth Public School’s senior kindergarten class display the stuffies for wildlife they’ve adopted through the World Wildlife Fund. They helped provide protected habitat for the jaguar, polar bear, orca whale, blue shark and tiger as members of junior kindergarten last year. This year, they’ll be adopting more wildlife habitat after their successful bake sale Feb. 21. From left, in the front row, are Ryan Campbell and Macie Smith; second row, Trina Oates, Haley Brown-O’Reilly and Marshall Rouse; third row, Wesley Freamo, Darcy Drouillard and Kent Greer; back row, Jackson Bates, Evan Charbonneau, Kale Osipenko and Ava Pilgrim.

Bake sale benefits wildlife, food bank, school breakfast club Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

Community - Kindergarten students sure love the soft cuddly stuffies that occupy their classroom at Queen Elizabeth Public School. But they’ll soon have more wildlife company, after the junior and senior kindergarten’s hugely successful bake sale Feb. 21. All baked goods were prepared by the kindergarten students and their

families. After raising more than $550 through donations only, the kindergarten class of Nicole Moran and Pam Robillard will now be able to support local causes and adopt endangered species through the World Wildlife Fund. The symbolic adoption actually protects habitat for animals different than the ones the class adopted a year ago. Six animals will be adopted at

a cost of $240, while another $200 will go to the Renfrew and District Food Bank and more than $100 to the school’s breakfast club. “Some people think it is okay to destroy their world,” says kindergarten student Macie Smith of the WWF contribution. “We don’t want them to be extinct,” says classmate Kent Greer. In promoting the bake sale, the class used Ipads to produce commercials that were transmitted onto

classroom whiteboards. The project followed last year’s successful project that resulted in the class being featured on WWF’s blog. Visit the blog at http://blog.wwf.ca/ blog/2013/10/16/giant-panda-goesschool /, or link to it via WWF’s website of www.wwf.ca. The successful bake sale and related activities such as learning about penguins and their habitat, creating art about endangered species, and counting the money raised

at the sale leave the teachers proud of what their young students have accomplished. “We just wanted the community to know we are so impressed by the amount of support we received from the students and staff,” said Moran. “Not only do we help six animals, but we get to help our school and our community.” The class motto is: Even if you are small, you can make a BIG difference in the world!

Focus on literacy at Renfrew Collegiate ENG 2D class

CHARLENE EDWARDS-BUDDEN

Literacy test participants, from left, front row, Kaitlyn Beimers and Valiyah Khurshid; second row, Grady Zohr and Nick Emon; third row, Alicia Forgie and Jamie Doering; and standing, Dawson Campbell.

All Grade 10 students at Renfrew Collegiate Institute received practice literacy booklets March 3, to help prepare them for the standardized test on March 27. This year is the first year the school has purchased the booklets for the students. Principal Terry Hughes said, “Renfrew Collegiate wants to ensure that our students are well prepared to write the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test. Before the test takes place, students will be given an opportunity to become familiar with the format and expectations of the test so they can concentrate on exhibiting their literacy skills, without the anxieties that usually accompany a high stakes test.” Students will work through this booklet while continuing with their regular studies. Between now and the test date, RCI’s English, math, history, and science teachers

will cover the entire booklet with their classes. A practice test will be written on March 19 to simulate the actual test day. The test will take one morning to complete and students will write in classrooms. After school literacy help is available at the school. It started Feb. 24 and has been running every Monday and Wednesday night. One Grade 10 student who has been attending said the practice sessions are very helpful and help to make a student less nervous for the OSSLT test. The OSSLT is a standardized test that all secondary students must pass in order to graduate with their Ontario Secondary School Diploma. According to the EQAO, “Its purpose is to determine whether or not students have acquired the literacy (reading and writing) skills that they are expected to have learned by the end of Grade 9, as outlined in the Ontario curriculum.”

Sklepowicz, Warren rinks battle for club’s 2014 mixed championship at Renfrew Curling Rink Andy Sklepowicz Behind the Glass

Sports - The ďŹ rst weekend of March the club held its last club championships when eight mixed teams came out for some heavy duty curling and a lot of fun along the way, including a great supper Saturday night. When the dust settled on Sunday there were a lot of tired bodies dragging themselves off the curling ice. And just like the blind squirrel ďŹ nding a nut or the three legged dog winning a race, an Andy Sklepowicz rink won a major championship. Often the master of the big upset but seldom a front runner, Sklepowicz was supported with great shooting by Yvonne Sklepowicz, Jim Harbord and Theresa Mann to come up the A side with wins over

the Yolkowskie-Lepack team, with Russ Connors sparing for Harbord, the Rob Warren rink and then the Leo McCallum foursome. Rob Warren with Laurie Millar, Dave Eady and Anne McNeil then fought the rest of the way back, defeating rinks skipped by Cliff Valleau, Ed Lepack and ďŹ nally eliminating Leo McCallum to take the B side. They then played well to defeat the Sklepowicz team to force a rematch in a winnertake-all situation. Two very tired teams battled through a last game where slowly the tide turned again and the Sklepowicz rink made the majority of their key shots to eventually run Warren out of rocks to take home the club’s mixed championship. A special thank-you to all the volunteers who worked

so hard to ensure another successful club event especially Yvonne and Anne Windle who did double-duty by cooking as well as playing all weekend, along with all the wonderful ladies of the kitchen. The same goes for Rob, Dave and lads who prepared the great ice over the three days. In other news, Renfrew hit the road for a Friendly competition in Shawville last Wednesday and had one of those days where everything went well for players on all Renfrew teams. Coming back with three decisive wins were the team of Bill Bowles, Anne McNeil, Rory McKay and Lee Sharpe; the Andy Sklepowicz rink with Shelley Jamieson, Jim Freemark and Donna Watson; and the Leo McCallum, Yvonne Sklepowicz, Al Watson and Louise Jamieson crew.

Congratulations to all players enjoying the win, but know that Shawville will be coming back with a vengeance when they visit Renfrew at the end of the month.

Castleford charity derby gets behind communities The ninth edition of the Castleford Charity Ice Fish Derby continues to put its weight behind community causes. The 2014 derby was a huge success, as organizers determined the major beneficiaries of their proceeds would be Hospice Renfrew, Community Living Renfrew County South and Horton Township recreation programs. Each received $2,100, as council members applauded the event’s continuing community support. From left, for the ceremonial cheque presentation, are derby volunteer Robert Robinson, Rob Dougherty of Hospice Renfrew, derby treasurer Don Storie, derby president Vince Barr, Jennifer Creeden of Community Living Renfrew County South, Horton recreation volunteer Val Miller, Horton Coun. Bob Kingsbury, and Horton recreation program manager Kathleen Rogers.

“The North American Indigenous Games this year are taking place in Regina July 20 to 27,” Gerry Benoit pointed out. Benoit will be coaching the U14 boys basketball

team. “The Games take place every four years and rotate between the United States and Canada,” he said of the event which involves youth ages 13 to 19 of Aboriginal decent. The first NAIG was held in 1990. Benoit was a member of the basketball team at the 2002 Games, and won a silver medal at the 2005 NAIG. The roster selection for this year’s NAIG will be made April 11. “It’s free tryouts. All athletes will receive a free t-shirt compliments of Aboriginal Team Ontario,” Benoit said. “It’s competitive. Ten to 12 players will be selected.” There are also six other camps, Benoit noted. Camps are held to build teams for the NAIG Games in Belleville, Rama, Thunder Bay, Fort Albany, Timmins, Sudbury, plus the Golden Lake camp. “It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity. They’ll meet a lot of people and make new friends,” Benoit said.

“I am also looking for an assistant coach,” he added. “The team is waiting for approval for covering his or her costs as assistant coach. I need their assistance running drills for 20 to 30 minutes for both the male and female participants.” Students looking to help out for the day March 15 can also use the time toward their volunteer hours. The Games draw athletes from 13 Canadian provinces and territories and 13 regions from the United States. SEVERAL SPORTS

Wolves, Almonte split home-ice decisions in opening games of 2014 Valley Division final Peter Clark peter.clark@metroland.com

GAME 1: WOLVES 4, ALMONTE 3 (OT)

Tanner Smith solved Almonte goalkeeper Alex Daley with a rising shot 2:03 into sudden-death overtime to lift the Wolves to a tense seriesopening victory Friday night. Smith took lead passes from defenceman Nathan Rook and Scott Conroy and connected off a rush. Colin Bradbury, Teddy Suckow and Kurtis Leclaire

quality saves for their teams. Wolves defender Michael Minns also swiped a loose puck away to save a goal seven minutes into the third period. There were just two minor penalties whistled by referee Ryan Gregory, one to each team about two minutes apart in the second period

monte’s goal production. Tyler McKechnie – son of Carmen McKechnie of the Wolves 1988 EOJHL championship team – added two assists. As was the case in one game in particular of the Shawville series, penalties hurt the Wolves. They surrendered three powerplay goals. WOLVES HOWLINGS

GAME 2: ALMONTE 6, WOLVES 2

It was a bad beginning and a bad ending for the Wolves at the Almonte Thunderdome Saturday night. Knowing they couldn’t afford to fall behind two games to nothing, the Thunder took the play to the Wolves early and were rewarded with three unanswered goals while outshooting the Wolves 12-3. They also scored the game’s last three goals in the third period. The Wolves owned the second period with a 24-4 shot advantage, and got answers from Tyler MacDonald and Kurtis Leclaire. Colin Bradbury had an assist on both. But despite more chances, Renfrew never could find an equalizer through the first 11 minutes of the third period before the Thunder pulled away. Ben Wade, Justin Marquis, Andrew Rowbotham, Conor Rolland, Luke Martin and Nick Villeneuve shared Al-

Sports - The Almonte Thunder have been a thorn in the side of the Renfrew Timberwolves all season long, having taken four of six regular season meetings. Almonte hasn’t gone away in the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League 2014 Valley Division championship series either. The defending division champion Wolves opened the best-of-seven series with a 4-3 overtime win at the MaTe-Way Activity Centre Friday night. But back came the Thunder with a 6-2 win in their own backyard Saturday evening. Games three and four have since been played, with game five set for Friday at the MAC. Game time is 8 p.m.

had earlier Renfrew markers while Luke Martin, Ben Wade and Andrew Rowbotham scored in regulation time for Almonte. Martin opened the scoring for Almonte when, after a series of rebounds, he was able to stuff the puck behind Wolves netminder Matt Gagne 14:12 into the game. Bradbury pulled Renfrew even when he broke for the net and took a Suckow feed off a 3-on-1 break 39 seconds into the second period. Suckow then staked the Wolves to a 2-1 lead when he banked a point dart in off the goalpost just nine seconds into Renfrew’s only powerplay at 13:02. Wade responded for the Thunder when he found daylight off the corner of the crease to send the teams into the second intermission tied at two. Leclaire put the Wolves back on top 3-2 when he rifled a dart off the crossbar and in from the high slot midway through the third period. Moments after the Wolves’ Troy Taylor cranked a shot off the goalpost, Rowbotham evened things up again for Almonte when he snapped a centring feed home to level the count at 3-3 with 4:21 remaining. Both Gagne and Daley were called upon to make some

League semifinal series at the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre. Aaron Sarsfield had the earlier marker for Pizzeria, who won the series five points to three. The Renfrew team will now take on Pembroke. Pembroke came back with 52 and 3-2 wins over B.R. Fulton Construction to win their pee-

wee house series five points to three. The margin of Pembroke victory came via a shorthanded tally in the final minute of the fourth game. Brandon McCrea and Cally Campbell scored for Fulton’s. Mason Lynch was between the pipes. The point gained in a 1-1 tie versus Barry’s Bay allowed

Fraser’s Clothes Shop to take their bantam playoff series 42 in points. Nicholas Wright scored while Carter Atkins guarded the goalcrease. The deadlock marked the second consecutive 1-1 tie after a 2-1 Fraser’s win in the series curtain raiser. Renfrew Metro is also still

alive in the bantam house playoffs with a second-round bye. Playoffs resume following the March Break. Both the Renfrew Peewee and Bantam Timberwolves are in their UOVHL finals against Deep River and Valley Storm respectively. Those series start next Wednesday at the MAC.

Eganville Olympian part of Athletics Calabogie Ski Racers reap rewards Canada’s Sport Ambassador Program from February, March competitions steve.newman@metroland.com

A star-studded cast of former track and field stars and current national team athletes have joined forces to launch Athletics Canada’s Sport Ambassador Program. The 11 national track and field team athletes selected as ambassadors include Olympic middle-distance runner Melissa Bishop of Eganville and world-class heptathlete Jessica Zelinka of London, Ont. “I’m excited to be a part of this program with fellow athletes and Athletics Canada alumni. The goal of this program is to increase the participation in track and field and promote healthy active living,� Bishop told The Renfrew Mercury. “From my experience, in speaking with children from schools around the Renfrew County, I believe this a great initiative to get everyone involved. Healthy active living is such a huge part of youth development, and I’m very excited to be promoting it by teaming up with Athletics Canada’s Sport Ambassador Program.� Bishop, who competed in the 800 metres at the 2012 Olympics, is preparing for the 2016 Olympics in the same

event. “Having the fortunate opportunity to be involved in athletics from a young age, it has brought me so many life skills; I can only hope that I can give back to the sport to inspire and help others,� says Bishop. The program was launched March 3 in Montreal in conjunction with the media launch for the inaugural AC (Athletics Canada) Indoor Open. The program also features 12 of Canada’s best-known track and field athletes as sports ambassadors. Among them are 1996 Olympic sprint and relay champion Donovan Bailey, world championship high jump medallist Mark Boswell, two-time world champion hurdler Perdita Felicien, Olympic champion hurdler Mark McKoy and Chantal Petitclerc, the world’s most recognized and decorated Paralympian. “Working with Athletics Canada and this esteemed group of alumni, the Sport Ambassador Program will continue to highlight the achievements of the greats, and mentor the strong and successful talent emerging in Canada,� said Bailey. “The opportunity to share my knowledge and insight with the next wave embodies the principles of being an

Olympic athlete. Track and field, Athletics Canada, and this great country have given me so much to be thankful for, to see the sport continue to be embraced is very exciting.â€? “Athletics has given me so much, it’s an opportunity to give back and inspire the next generation,â€? said Zelinka. Other national team athletes named ambassadors are Karine Belleau-BĂŠliveau, Bishop’s 800-metre teammate at the 2013 world championships, as well as Earle Connor, Brent Lakatos, Lanni Marchant, Brianne Theisen-Eaton, Gavin Smellie, Diane Roy and Justyn Warner. The Sport Ambassador Program is intended to help increase overall participation and provide a positive experience in track and field. “Having active and healthy children is a goal for everyone,â€? said Athletics Canada chief executive officer Rob Guy. “Athletics, being a foundation for all sports, provides us with a vehicle to accomplish this. We are very excited about the Sport Ambassador Program and are hopeful that our celebrity athletes can motivate today’s young Canadians and introduce them to our sport.â€? - With files from Athletics Canada

(White Lake) pulled off his season’s best with his first top 10 result – eighth. Louise Stonham (Arnprior) was another in the top 10 with a seventh-place finish. The U12 kombi turned into a stars on ice performance – with plenty of thrills and spills. Sam Alexander (Carp) knifed through the ice for victory. Wesley Matthews (Calabogie) slid out on the sheer course (like many of his competitors) but hung on and managed to finish 18th despite two falls. Among many others, the slippery course claimed Carson Lefebvre (Calabogie) and Luke Hansen (Renfrew) as its victims. The U14s capped off their Mont Ste. Marie speed camp with a GS race, gathering excellent results. Sam Duff (Pembroke) flew to first, with Jack Alexander (Carp) close behind in fourth. Tyler Lefebvre (Calabogie) laid down two speedy runs for 14th. Jack Hamilton (Burnstown) was 37th.

Calabogie Ski Racing Club

Sports - The past couple of weekends have been the perfect storm of race action for CSRC. On Feb. 22, the U12s raced Kombi at Edelweiss, the U14s capped off speed camp with a GS race at Mont Ste. Marie, and the U16s tackled slalom at Camp Fortune. This was followed up by the U14s racing at Mount StLouis Moonstone near Barrie for the U14 alpine provincials as part of the Ontario Winter Games Feb. 28 to March 2. Not to be outdone, the U10s travelled to Vorlage March 1 for a kombi. All of these races cap off a busy season, as the athletes prepare to launch into the season championships. In the U10 Kombi, Wyatt Campbell-Brunke (Renfrew) was once again undefeated. Noah Matthews (Calabogie) turned in a couple of good runs to come seventh, and Thys Blok

Skiers: Enjoying the rewards of success From page 40

The girls saw podium action too. Sophia Tan (Kanata) flew down the hill and landed in third, with Lauren Campbell-Brunke (Renfrew) right behind in fifth. The U14s travelled to Mount St-Louis Moonstone for U14 Provincials Feb. 28 to March 2. Everyone skied extremely well and loved

the Ontario Winter Games pomp and circumstance. Sam Duff nailed his races, placing first in the slalom and third overall. Other top 20 finishers included Jack Alexander, Alexa Loudiadis, Sophia Tan and Lauren Campbell-Brunke. The U16s skied a double-header: Saturday slalom and Sunday GS. Alex Duff (Pembroke) DSQed in

the slalom but had redemption the next day with a fifth-place ribbon in GS. It was a similar story for Travis Reid (Kingston) – DNF in slalom but a 24th finish in GS. Jenna Wissing was 24th in slalom. Next up for our busy racers are regional championship races over the March

Break. And in other action, come and check out some future Olympians at Calabogie Peaks over the March Break. CSRC is hosting the U16 Alpine Provincials, which brings together Ontario’s finest and fastest ski racers, Wednesday, March 12 to Saturday, March 15.

Severe winter puts Ontario’s deer herds at risk News - White-tailed deer in parts of Ontario are experiencing one of the worst winters in recent memory. “Deep snow, hard crusts and frigid temperatures could result in significant mortality of adult deer and the loss of this spring’s fawn crop,” says OFAH senior wildlife biologist Mark Ryckman. The MNR reports that most deer entered this winter in really good shape thanks to an abundance of natural foods in 2013. However, it remains likely that this year’s harsh winter conditions will still have an impact on many of central and northern Ontario’s deer herds. In 1995, the OFAH established the DeerSave Fund to help members, clubs and partners deliver emergency winter deer conservation activities, such as browse cutting, trail breaking and emergency feeding. Mild winters have limited the need for emergency winter deer conservation in recent years, but the DeerSave Fund has been called upon when needed to provide targeted funding to aid struggling herds. To learn more, call the OFAH at

We have bird box plans for the all the species that will accept man-made nests. Give us a call if you are interested. We also have diatomite, a non-toxic insecticide made from the cells of aquatic algae, which kills the larvae of insects that invade nests and kill the young.

It remains disappointing that a local business that has been providing one of the compacting garbage dumpsters, and a regular dumpster for recyclables. (Experiment) First – did council approve of this situation by way of motion and what fees and charges were buried and approved? Second – has Township staff been compacting the garbage dumpster prior to transfer to Moose Creek? Third – is staff taking an empty tractor to Griffith and Dacre? No spare bins. Is anyone requesting the weight of the dumpster delivered from this business to Moose Creek especially since the taxpayer are or could be paying the freight? Is the Township - Ward One developing a plan to provide garbage and recycling for businesses? Council not ministry wants me to comply to their wishes, with the insurance theme. Not ministry conditions. One day per week. Finally, I suggest that currently the Township is at risk if this situation was not formally discussed and approved by council. Staff may be hurt on private property like me. Is non compacted garbage to be delivered to Moose Creek inspected by staff prior to transfer to ensure compliance with clear bag program? Election year! Elect people that work for you, make decisions in your best interest! Everyone must be treated equally. I am a taxpayer and a service provider too many customers!

The OFAH is initiating discussions with MNR regional biologists to determine areas of the province that would benefit most from winter conservation efforts. In the meantime, concerned conservationists are packing down trails in areas frequented by deer, and by cutting preferred browse species (maples, birch, dogwood, sumac, hemlock, cedar, etc.). “Conservationists can also help by contributing to the OFAH DeerSave Fund so we are ready to provide help when and where it is needed most,” added Ryckman. It remains critically important to respect private property and keep safety in mind at all times when performing winter conservation efforts. The Federation only endorses deer feeding in emergency situations, J.R. Easton and only according to science-based Easton Garbage – Recycling Services MNR guidelines.

Kent and Connie Smith had a rare red-bellied woodpecker at their feeder for the winter. They said that it spent much of its time at the suet feeder. The red-bellied woodpecker was first reported in this area in 2003. They have been reported in Calabogie, Renfrew, Cobden, at Hurd’s Lake, Forresters Falls and in Horton, or much of southern Renfrew County. The red-bellied woodpecker is not considered to be a migrant, but Great Lakes populations may be driven south during unusually cold winters. They prefer old growth forests and much of south eastern Ontario is prime habitat for them. The adult male has a red crown and nape, otherwise upperparts and central tail feathers are barred black and white. The face and underparts are greyish white except for a reddish bellypatch which is often difficult to see in the field. The female is similar to the male except the red which is restricted to the nape. The red-bellied drums in one-second bursts on any resonant surface.

Community - A new exercise program is underway at the Renfrew Golden Age Activity Centre, running two mornings per week, and all seniors are welcome. The program, which is free to seniors, runs 45 minutes at each session, and is funded by the Champlain Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) through the Community Care Access Centre (CCAC). “It’s so important for seniors to stay mobile. Their hearts work better when they are active. Everything works better,” said Champlain LHIN CEO Chantale LeClerc. “It is a balance of rhythm

and co-ordination,” she added. There are about 300 classes per year throughout the Champlain LHIN. Classes are 45 minutes and can accommodate up to 30 seniors per class. “The program makes sure seniors can stay well longer, and helps prevent falls,” LeClerc said. “Presently, we are in well over 120 facilities in Ontario and growing,” said Keri Radford, physiotherapy assistant for Upper Ottawa Valley, who organizes many of the seniors fitness classes at the Golden Age Activity Centre. “We started in retirement homes.

Morning mishap OPP report that two people escaped with minor injuries from this pickup truck Thursday morning, Feb. 27, when it left the road on Highway 17 east of Renfrew. Winter conditions are expected to continue. Drivers are being reminded to exercise caution.

Drive to survive urge OPP Ontario Provincial Police

News - The Ontario Provincial Police, East Region want to warn snowmobilers to drive safe and pay attention to their surroundings. “The school holiday is underway and this is the most snow we have observed in many years during this period,” said Inspector Paul Bedard, manager of traffic and marine for the East Region. “With March Break this week, the trails will be busy and we ask that operators pay attention and drive safe on the trails and check ice conditions before heading out on the rivers and

lakes. Warmer temperatures can make ice dangerous.” During the 2013-14 season alone, four people have died in Motorised Snow Vehicle (MSV) collisions. Of the four fatal crashes, three have been related to alcohol. This does not include the many crashes where people have been seriously injured. Put an end to these preventable deaths, notes the OPP. Pay attention, slow down and be prepared in the event you do go through the ice. Wear flotation suits, carry picks, let others know your route and stick to it, Inspector Bedard added.

News - Irresponsible driver behaviour has the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP), East Region, concerned about the fate of many road users this year. The OPP’s Distracted Driving campaign is underway and runs this week up until Friday, March 14. During that time, the OPP will be doing its part to eliminate the threat of distracted driving through its own awareness raising efforts and focused enforcement of distracted driving laws throughout the province. OPP officers in East Region laid 84 Distracted Driving charges last weekend. In 2013, distracted driving fatalities surpassed both impaired and speed related fatalities in fatal motor vehicle collisions investigated by the OPP. A total of 78 persons died in distracted driving

FINES GOING UP

The OPP is reminding motorists that on March 18, 2014 the current distracted driving fine of $155 will jump to $280. This includes the increased $225 fine plus a $50 victim fine surcharge and $5 court cost. The OPP is asking Ontarians to show their support during this important campaign. Go to the OPP’s Facebook and/or Twitter pages and let them know how you plan on helping to eliminate distracted driving on Ontario roads. The OPP will highlight some of your entries in a campaign wrap-up news release following the campaign. You can also follow the OPP on Twitter @OPP_ ER

Agricultural Safety Week campaign says Let’s Talk About It ics like talking to your kids around safety or overcoming language and cultural barriers with migrant workers. The idea is to get people talking about farm safety as a first step towards a safer, more successful farm.” “It’s human nature to think ‘it won’t happen to me,’ but unfortunately it can, especially if we continue on with this approach. Taking preventative, proactive measures is one of the best things we can do for our farm and workers. We hope that through safety week and through hearing from other farmers about their experiences, we shed some light on the necessity of farm safety and practical ways to make it happen on the farm,” says CFA president Ron Bonnett. “In our fast-paced industry, it’s important to take the time to think about the safety and well-being of the people who grow our food,” says Remi

Lemoine, vice president and chief operating officer at FCC. “We’re committed to helping Canadian producers stay safe at work, and encourage thoughtful planning through written health and safety plans.” As part of CASW, CASA and CFA are also working with Ag for Life and Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development to host Let’s Talk About It!

schools and in their communities. “Encouraging our farm families and communities to talk about safety during Canadian Agricultural Safety Week is a great way to raise the awareness of keeping everyone safe and we’re honoured to be part of this national initiative.” For more information go to www. agsafetyweek.ca.

The recreation committee will look into the cost for hooks and shelves in the Horton Community Centre’s four dressing rooms. The rooms have benches. But there is no shelving or hooks to allow hockey players, skaters or other users to easily separate their equipment and clothes. Also at the March 4 meeting, Horton council supported a resolution recently passed by the Town of Arnprior for the Ontario government to take measures to ensure that electricity rates, both in the short- and long-term, allow business to remain competitive in a global market and ensure that vulnerable residents are not overburdened by every-increasing electricity rates. Arnprior also asks that the Ontario Energy Board not approve additional rate increases for electricity.
