News - The organizer of last Friday’s Renfrew protest over skyrocketing heating bills from Hydro One didn’t know what kind of response she’d get. Angela Burgess, who runs the KOA Kampground in Horton Township, says she was hoping attendance was strong and even included a few combines. The feisty organizer didn’t get the combines, but attendance was healthy, as about 100 people, from such communities as Renfrew, Horton, Haley Station, Arnprior and Calabogie, showed up to protest the bills that are wreaking havoc on residents and businesses across Ontario. The protest ended in the freezing rain, with no freeze on hydro billings in sight. Main speakers in front of Renfrew town hall were Burgess, Horton Mayor Don Eady and MPP John Yakabuski. “If we don’t get this fixed, downtown Renfrew is going to look like downtown Pembroke, all boarded up, with all the lights turned off,� said Burgess, before she and other protestors marched a few blocks to the official protest site while carrying placSTEVE NEWMAN/METROLAND ards like Smart Meters Dumb Idea; Protestors at Renfrew’s demonstration over Hydro One billings include, Are you aware Seniors are on a Fixed in the foreground from left, Doris Brown of Arnprior and Lorna Dawdy income?; and We work, we pay, we pay, we pay. of Calabogie.

More to the point, Burgess said people across this province are going to face financial turmoil if Hydro One doesn’t fix its billing catastrophe that has Hydro One customers receiving bills that are jumping exponentially despite few if any changes in their heating practices. While preparing for the protest, Burgess says she heard six weeks of stories from people about the deep unrest that Hydro One’s billing has caused so many people. These billings, said Burgess, are emblematic of how the Province has been trying to “systematically destroy rural life. “They have closed schools, they have reduced services at hospitals, they don’t pay attention to road conditions, they don’t listen to any concerns. “The thought process is, let rural Ontario die a natural death and encourage people to live in urban centres. And I say to hell with that idea.� After encouraging residents who are being overbilled by Hydro One to cease their regular payments, someone from the crowd shouted out, “Let’s form a new province.� “Are you talking separation?� asked Burgess to laughter from the crowd. “Separation from Toronto,� she was told.

“We are seeing a slow but steady recovery. Projects such as this are truly critical to the recovery and survival of the industry,� Morrow said. “The work that Ensyn’s doing here secures Ontario’s and the Valley’s position as a leader in the world-wide bio-oil industry,� Morrow added. “It also secures 14 existing jobs and adds 14 jobs. I come from the north, raised in the north, in a small town, and every jobs counts. This is a nice return on $1.5 million dollars.� Ensyn’s principal product is RFO a liquid biofuel that is a heating fuel and is also a feedstock for refineries for the production of gasoline and diesel. The new release said capacity at the facility will be increased from about three million litres to 13 million litres of RFO annually. Ensyn’s biofuels business is based on the conversion of wood and other non-food, cellulosic biomass to advanced cellulosic biofuels. “Our partnership with the Town of Renfrew has been instrumental in our success today,� Ensyn Technology Inc. president Dave Boulard said at the Renfrew announcement. “Thanks to the Renfrew Industrial Commission (RIC)

Bev Fortin of Haley Station, Anne Elliott (centre) of Douglas and Albert Linde of Arnprior are among dozens of protestors at Friday’s demonstration over Hydro One billings. The issue, stressed the MPP, has everything to do with policy and how it impacts the cost of electricity. The issue is also the biggest one facing staff in Yakabuski’s office. “The reality is that people cannot afford it. That’s why you’re here today,� he said. “But it’s not just individuals. I hear from businesses, how they’re considering shutting their doors because they can’t afford the price of electricity.� Yakabuski called it “a bloody mess, and I can see that you’re very, very angry.� It took a decade for the problem to reach this point, said the MPP: “It’s like the biggest ship on the ocean. You can’t turn it around real fast. R0012608139

Horton Mayor Eady, who describes himself as a normally peaceful person, said he “never, everâ€? thought he’d be standing in front of a crowd as a protestor. “Ladies and gentlemen, we have a real serious problem. Rural Ontario is almost being shut down in some ways ‌ Hydro is just unbelievable. When you have a bill coming in at $100 a month and all of a sudden it jumps up to $600, does somebody not red-flag that? And then when you call, you can’t get answers. That’s wrong, just wrong.â€? Eady cautioned that Friday’s protests are among many more to come, but in a troubling time, with organizations such as the Association of Municipalities of Ontario failing to speak up on behalf of municipalities. People should have the final say, said Eady, in agreeing with a person in the crowd. “I don’t know how they get the final say when you can’t get people to listen to the people.â€? Given back the microphone, Burgess said, “We need to understand that this (Liberal) government is a runaway train, and if we have any hope of survival we have to keep this protest going.â€? “But we’re all here today and we all feel the same way. We all have the same pain,â€? added Burgess. She also indicated that several measures demanded by protest leaders such as herself could start to improve the situation. First of all, remove HST from all Hydro One bills, largely because it’s an unnecessary tax that no other North American provinces charge, she told the crowd. That, she insisted, could be an all-party vote.

Two, remove the debt-retirement charges on Hydro One bills, because the province’s debt was paid off more than two years ago. Those payments, said Burgess, continue to be a “slush fund so they can pay Green Energy suppliers 84 cents a kilowatt (for the energy) they produce.� Three, equalize delivery charges so they’re not linked to hydro consumption. Two other demands, which weren’t mentioned at the protest, are removal of all smart meters in rural Ontario, and a forensic audit of Hydro One’s new billing program. The demands make sense, said Burgess, because they’re doable. Politicians present at Friday’s protest included Horton council members Glen Campbell, Bob Kingsbury, Don Eady and Jamey Larone, and Renfrew Reeve Audrey Green. Green congratulated Burgess for having the guts to stand up and oppose Hydro One. “It’s long, long overdue, and I support you 100 per cent in everything you do, because I, too, get hydro bills,� said Green. “It’s just totally impossible to try to manage, with every bill going up, including town taxes.� The last major speaker was MPP Yakabuski, who travelled from a Hydro One protest that morning in Barry’s Bay and spent several minutes trying to explain why regulatory policy has helped make Ontario energy production so expensive. Before the MPP started to speak, Burgess led a triple-chorus of “Hell, no, we won’t pay (our hydro bills).� Then one woman yelled from the crowd, promising that the MPP “won’t get our vote if you don’t do something about it.� “As far as the vote goes,� said Yakabuski, “you can do what you want, but if you don’t change the government, this isn’t going to change.�

Braeside Home Furnishings WWWBRAESIDEHOMEFURNISHINGSCOM HOURS:

There’s going to have to be a lot of changes made, but letting the government know just how P-ed off you are is a good start.� When told he needs to express his concerns at Queen’s Park, Yakabuski said it’s now the people’s turn. “No, you need to go down and let them know how mad you are, because I’m just the same voice all the time,� said Yakabuski, knowing a large anti-Hydro One protest is being planned for Queen’s Park. “We’re going to do what we can to slow down these people down. But until we hold those levers of power, we can’t turn this ship around,� the MPP said.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has recently approved Ensyn’s Renfrew plant as a registered facility under the US Renewable Fuel Standards (RFS2) program. The company can now produce cellulosic biofuel that will be eligible for credits under the program. Ensyn’s news release says this has significantly accelerated customer demand from U.S. clients. On March 7, 2014 Ensyn announced an initial contract to supply RFO from itds plant in Renfrew. The five-year contract with Memorial Hospital of North Conway, N.H., is for the supply of RFO for heating purposes.

Council has approved the tendering process to reconstruct a 3.5-kilometre section of Flat Road in 2014. The estimated cost is $445,000, which has been put in the budget. Coun. Glenda McKay noted that the municipality received a grant from the Ontario government of $336,000 for the project. Public works will also clear trees along Ferguson Lake Road over a 3.5-kilometre stretch. The clearing of larger trees will be contracted out at a cost of

about $10,000. This must be done to have the road reconstruction done by the fall of this year. Pitch-in-Week is April 21 to 27. One day will be dedicated to cleaning up the environment. It will be promoted in the paper, website and at the township waste sites. Public works will supply clear garbage bags and safety gear for the picking up of litter.

Plenty of Enterprise Renfrew County activities in 2013: Sadler Steve Newman

steve.newman@metroland.com

News - Business development continues in the Renfrew area, with continuing and new programs taking place with assistance from Enterprise Renfrew County. In a brief presentation to Renfrew council March 24, business consultant Colleen Sadler of Enterprise Renfrew County and Renfrew County economic development manager Alastair Baird opened the presentation by talking about such business developments as Ottawa Valley Wood, a county initiative that was designed to facilitate the purchase of local wood products. The website is www.ottawavalleywood.com, which Baird identified as a source for lumber, furniture, flooring, gifts, kitchenware and art. Ottawa Valley Wood is also the recent winner of the Ontario Forestry Association’s 2013 Ontario Wood Award. ERC, with an annual budget of about $200,000, operates under the auspices of the county’s economic development division. The division is part of the county’s department of development and property. ERC is a four-way partnership involving the province, Renfrew (which contributes $1,000 each year), Pembroke and the county. “Enterprise Renfrew County is a good first stop and one-stop shopping for entrepreneurs,” said Baird. Sadler summarized activities out of ERC’s Renfrew office, while noting ERC program officer Kim Fraser operates out of its satellite office in Pembroke. In 2013, the Renfrew office handled 436 of 940 inquiries for business information, while

ERCs total number of inquiries, including online engagement through website visits and social media, was 16,696. Sadler mentioned other ERC activities, including nine participants in the Summer Company Program and a record 170 delegates at the Bridges to Better Business seminar. The seminar coincided with ERC’s 25th anniversary as a small-business enterprise centre. There will also be a new program on the county’s business block in 2014. Sadler said the Ontario government’s recent announcement of a new two-year $295 million Youth Jobs Strategy is intended to create 30,000 job opportunities. ERC will provide mentoring, training and seed capital for youth to start, grow or buy small businesses through the Starter Company Program for youth ages 18-29 who are not in school. The Ontario government has yet to make the official announcement about the Starter Company Program, but Sadler said it will focus on helping youth who face many barriers to employment and live in high-need communities. These include aboriginals, recent immigrants, visible minorities, disabled youth, rural and northern residents, and youth on social assistance. In contrast, the continuing Summer Company Program is for those ages 15 to 29 who are in school and returning in the fall. With expansion of the government’s Youth Job Strategy, Sadler says ERC is aiming to more than double its numbers of young student entrepreneurs in the Summer Company Program, from nine in 2013 to 20 this year. Successful applicants receive up to $1,500 to start and operate their own business in the sum-

In 2013, Enterprise Renfrew County also gave guidance to 13 new business start-ups in

Renfrew that created 23 jobs. Overall, ERC staff assisted with 41 new business start-ups and two business expansions, to help create 61 jobs.

News - If Clint McWhirter’s election campaign is successful, he’ll be the lone town council member re-elected as a councillor. “You still need some experienced councillors to keep that continuity,� says McWhirter, 56, knowing two councillors have entered the mayoral race and two aren’t seeking re-election. The son of a military policeman who died a decade ago, McWhirter moved to Renfrew in 1981 to work at Wilson Tires. In 1995 he became owner-operator when the company became Seaway Tire and Automotive Centre. He closed the business recently and now works as the parts manager for a local car dealership. He and Donna, a Renfrew native, have two children in their early 20s. McWhirter, who’s a member of council’s economic development committee, says he’d like to see more businesses come to town. However, he says Renfrew must do a better job of marketing itself, given the area’s sizeable and skilled workforce. Seeking a third term on council, McWhirter says he has long heeded former councillor Earl Bennett’s advice to follow the 24-hour rule.In other words, don’t have a knee-jerk reaction, but think about a complaint, find out the facts, and then respond. McWhirter said that’s what he did after council chose not to build an indoor pool and second ice pad. He spearheaded a move to build an outdoor pool, because it would have answered some of Renfrew’s recreational needs, but council nixed the idea following mixed reviews from the public. Meanwhile, economic development needs to

News - If Jeff Taylor becomes one of Renfrew’s newest councillors, the political neophyte says his learning curve will be steep. But after listening to public feedback in person and on his own Facebook account for a couple of years, the Renfrew-born businessman says it was time to step forward. In fact, Taylor says he sold his Rise ‘n’ Shine Diner (while retaining ownership of two other small businesses), to focus on getting elected and being a good councillor. Never elected to public office, Taylor, 44, says conversations with the public are telling him they’re unhappy with council for issues that include a lack of openness for business development. “There seem to be a lot of questions, and I just think town council should be more of a public forum and show the public their decisions, instead of having the public go and dig for (answers to) any question they have.� Answers could be generated on a radio show of questions for a different councillor each week, suggests Taylor.

Barry’s Bay teenager wows pageant’s crowd and judges Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

News - The word ‘beauty’ inevitably comes to mind when watching modern day pageants. The 2014 Teen Ontario East Pageant was no exception as more than 300 people packed the Renfrew Recreation Centre Sunday evening. Sonya Bergin, the 2013 pageant champion told the crowd

just before the crowning of her successor that beauty is much more than outward appearance. The different pressures felt by females can be overwhelming in a society that asks for and often gets perfection or beauty, with or without Photoshop, said Bergin. The Renfrew teenager said there may be a million different definitions of beauty, “but we should not let the world

define it as something that is only visually appealing, but rather something that comes from within. “No matter the circumstance, whoever you are or however you look, if you are happy in your own skin, that is beautiful and I think we should all strive to meet that goal.� A few minutes later, after being crowned the winner of this year’s pageant, Theresa Paplinskie of Barry’s Bay of-

fered heartfelt support for Bergin’s comments. She won the celebrated eveninggown portion of the program, but she also won the awards for friendship, ambassadorship and the impromptu question, showing that the judges had many factors to weigh. “I think she’s exactly correct,� said the 17-year-old champion regarding Bergin’s remarks. “Beauty is on the inside alongside what’s on the outside. What’s on the inside is what matters the most.� Paplinskie, who aspires to a nursing career, is also involved in overseas missions and aspires to be an elite three-day eventer in equestrian. “Oh my goodness,� she said as dozens of well-wishers, including her parents Mike and Janet, ascended to the stage to congratulate the 19 contestants from eight communities. EIGHT FROM RENFREW

There were eight delegates from Renfrew and one each from Cobden, Cornwall, Barry’s Bay, Douglas, Arnprior, Carleton Place and Ottawa. “It is a pageant with a purpose. Their focus isn’t on external beauty,� added Paplinskie. “It’s really on internal beauty and how these lovely delegates will raise awareness for childhood cancer.� See PAGEANT, page 9

Generate more noise, protest Plentiful harvest from timber organizer tells Horton council around Horton landďŹ ll site steve.newman@metroland.com

News - Angela Burgess says she doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mind being the whacky lady who stands up and stamps her feet about such injustices as preposterously high Hydro One bills. But the Horton KOA Kampground owner says more would get done if more people joined with her to create a louder voice. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what she told Horton council April 1, three days before the demonstration she organized in downtown Renfrew. Not only are unreasonable Hydro One bills beating people up emotionally, but taxes, based partly on unrealistic property values determined by the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation, make the situation even worse, says Burgess. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Their property has no value. They canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sell it. There are people across the province who havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t built up a whole lot of equity in their home.

STEVE NEWMAN/METROLAND

Protest organizer Angela Burgess. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Remember the crash of the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;80s?. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking about going into the banks, putting the keys on the table, and saying there you go, you pay the hydro bills. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how bad it is, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why I want you to think long and hard about finding your passionâ&#x20AC;? when you write a letter of complaint to Hydro One or lobby certain officials, advised Burgess. As a professional electrician, Coun. Glen Campbell told her thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an increasing push from customers for realtime utilization devices, and

other technology, to help control or predict hydro bills. Burgess said she would have plenty to say at the protest, but she invited Horton council members to attend the protest and speak too. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Show a little bit of passion and let the people at the demonstration understand that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to stand up and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to fight for them as hard as theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to fight for themselves,â&#x20AC;? said Burgess. Four of five council members did attend the Friday protest. POWER IN NUMBERS

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m used to walking around and having people run in the other direction,â&#x20AC;? said Burgess. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But if I had people standing with me, maybe somebody would pay more attention.â&#x20AC;? If Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s protest doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t generate enough positive response, Burgess said the next plan is to send about 200 busloads of protestors to Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Park.

News - The Township of Greater Madawaska unsuccessfully applied to the county to host a Taste of the Valley event in Griffith. However, there is still interest to hold an event in Ward 3 to showcase the Matawatchan Farmers Market. Mayor Peter Emon said an event in that part of the township will attract people from Bancroft and beyond in central Ontario. The closest Taste of the Valley event is this September in Renfrew.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I only go by what I know. If I knew more, maybe I could understand more, and more people would stop jumping down councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s throat.â&#x20AC;? Taylor believes a more open forum is needed for discussing policies, direction and decisions made within council. He says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d bring an honest, tell-as-it-is, hard-working approach to council.

Greater Madawaska will help get its name out by sponsoring a hole at the Ross Mckenzie Memorial Golf Tournament. The four-person scramble event runs at the Madawaska Golf Club in Arnprior Tuesday, June 3, in conjunction with the Association of Ontario Roads Supervisors (AORS) Municipal Trade Show hosted by Renfrew County in Arnprior at the Nick Smith Centre. The showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dates are June 4 and 5. Some staff members will also work at the show in parking and security.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not a self-agenda kind of guy,â&#x20AC;? he says. Married to Tara, they have two children, Peighton, 4, and Austin, 16. Taylor left Renfrew Collegiate Institute, at age 16, to work in the logging industry in Calabogie. In 1988 he began his own seasonal roofing business, which became full-time within two years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am running for council because, as a business owner, there needs to be a voice that

will speak up for small business, especially in our downtown core.â&#x20AC;? Next term, Taylor says the major issues will be recreating a level of respect between the town and taxpayers, and economic development. Festivals can be part of the latter, he says, by attracting lots of people and making Renfrew feel more like a community. Taylorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own pastimes include camping, beach volleyball and darts.

News - Horton Township is pleased with the early 2014 timber harvest on its landfill site. About 23 acres generated a â&#x20AC;&#x153;plentifulâ&#x20AC;? harvest, forester Larry Polk told Horton council April 1. The township had the options of patchcutting or clear-cutting, and chose the latter. Clear-cutting left the township with a larger harvest. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it was a very good harvest, very good utilization,â&#x20AC;? said Polk. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If it hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been done now, a lot more of the cedar would be down on the ground and would have been wasted.â&#x20AC;? A fair bit of white pine was left for natural seeding. However, if monitoring shows insubstantial natural reseeding occurs, the clear-cut area will likely be replanted, said Polk. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I initially inventoried the property two or three years ago,â&#x20AC;? said Polk. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since that time there has been a lot of damage from wind. A

lot of the cedar had fallen over.â&#x20AC;? The harvest, conducted by Dawson Crozier for Raymond Bell Lumber, generated about $47,000 for Horton. From that total, the township paid a management fee of $4,000 to Polk. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it was a very good harvest, very good utilization,â&#x20AC;? said Polk. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If it hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been done now, a lot more of the cedar would be down on the ground and would have been wasted.â&#x20AC;? All of the timber on the landfill site wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t harvested since about 10 acres of hardwood will be allowed to grow, to generate another harvest down the road. About 35 acres of the landfillâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s entire 50 acres can be forested. The township has owned the property since the 1990s, but only purchased harvesting rights from the previous owner about three years ago. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cutting and trucking of the timber took place in January, February and March.

Beware the threat of carbon monoxide

Opinion - The death of three members of a Brampton family sadly underscores the dangers of carbon monoxide and the need for working alarms. When their furnace quit working, the family opted to use propane heaters to heat the home during the recent chilly conditions. While five members suffered from carbon monoxide poisoning, three were pronounced dead and the other two were treated. Poisoning by the gas was also blamed for deaths in the pre-holiday ice storm across the province. In this case, the family had working carbon monoxide detectors, which had activated when another family member came home, but Brampton Fire and Emergency Services warned that propane heaters should never be used indoors. The gas is invisible, odourless and colourless which makes it all the more important to have detectors. According to Statistics Canada, there were a total of 380 accidental deaths due to carbon monoxide poisoning in the country between

2000 and 2009. To cut down on the risks of carbon monoxide, the Ontario Association of Fire Chiefs recommends that people place detectors in their home, located outside every sleeping area and ensure that fuel-burning appliances (furnaces, water heaters, fireplaces, etc.) are regularly maintained and the ventilation is checked. Often obstruction by snow and leaves can occur. Never bring an outdoor heater, generator or barbecue indoors when the power is off or your heat source quits as most are designed to stay outside and aren’t properly ventilated. Symptoms to look for include: headaches, feeling tired or short of breath, impairment of motor functions, and at prolonged exposure, chest pain, dizziness and having trouble thinking. Following a few simple tips can give you and your family peace of mind and the tools to know what to do should you encounter such a situation. Spring is officially here, but as the last chill LETTER TO THE EDITOR of a long, hard winter lingers, stay safe.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Thanks to volunteers To the editor: Opinion - In honour of National Volunteer Week (April 6 to 12), the Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB) would like to thank its incredible volunteers; we couldn’t do what we do without them. CNIB has always been an organization of people helping people, and nowhere is that more evident than in the dedicated work of our volunteers. Our volunteer team stretches from one end of the country to the other – and is made up of Canadians of all ages and from all walks of life. Every day, passionate CNIB volunteers make a difference for our clients through their selfless work. Please remember to take the time to acknowledge the volunteers in your community – especially during this week. A simple “thank you” reminds them that their work is appreciated.

Their letter reads, “This bill contains proposals that would seriously damage the fairness and transparency of federal elections and diminish Canadians’ political participation… we are alarmed at the lack of due process in drafting the bill and in rushing it through Parliament.” The bill would end the use of voter cards and voter vouching, but “The use of voter cards is especially important for Canadians who lack ID that proves their current address, such as students, senior citizens in long-term care facilities, First Nations citizens, and those who have recently moved… In 2011, approximately 120,000 citizens relied on the vouching provision in order to vote.” The government endlessly misquotes the Harry Neufeld Report on its claim that vouching allows for voter fraud, when the report found no evidence of voter fraud and recommended keeping the vouching system. Neufeld estimates 250,000 to 500,000 citizens will be denied voting rights from loss of voter cards. “Bizarrely, the bill forbids Elections Canada from promoting democratic participation and voting through “get out the vote” campaigns. Elections Canada would even be prevented

The Rigged Elections Act

from publishing its research reports on the electoral process. “[Bill C-23] exempts fundraising costs from campaign spending limits as long as fundraising is targeted at previous donors of more than $20. This introduces two biases into the campaign finance rules. First, it disadvantages parties whose donors can contribute only small amounts. Second, it favours parties that have built their donor lists over those that have not. “Bill C-23 requires Elections Canada to appoint central poll supervisors from lists of names provided by the candidate or party that came first in the last election, favouring incumbents and their parties.” Nineteen politics professors of six other developed democracies have also echoed these concerns in their own letter, as have five provincial and federal chief electoral officers, former Auditor General Sheila Fraser, the Institute for Research on Public Policy, Fair Vote Canada, Democracy Watch, and The Globe and Mail editors. Former Reform Party leader Preston Manning has called for the bill to be amended to strengthen, rather than reduce, the independence of Elections Canada. Citizens should demand that MP Cheryl Gallant reverse her vote for reduced debate, so that democracy may remain real for us all, not just an academic theory refuted by self-serving politicians who rig elections.

Pageant Continued from page 6

The winner was referring to the pageantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s major fundraising cause, Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Inc., who was represented on the seven-member judging panel by Candlelighters executive director Jocelyn Lamont. The Grade 11 student at Madawaska Valley District High School said the toughest challenge was getting over the early jitters. She also mastered the impromptu question with surprising ease. She says she was as surprised by the question as she was by her answer when asked, â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you were a super hero, what would your super-hero name be, and what would your super power be?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think I would be Helpful Harmony,â&#x20AC;? she said, before blirting out, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know where that came from?â&#x20AC;? She then explained she really likes helping others and promoting harmony and a positive attitude. The pageant victory, said Paplinskie, means she gets to â&#x20AC;&#x153;inspire others to show who they truly are. What you are on the inside needs to shine. And people need to see who you are.â&#x20AC;? Some of the teenagerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s passions include serving on mission trips, like the one she took to Panama last year, and riding horses. First runner-up honours went to 16-year-old Opeongo High School student Jill Barr of Douglas after ďŹ nishing among the top three in the talent contest won by singer-guitarist Cassidy Whitelock of Arnprior.

Dressed in wool socks, long pants, a casual shirt and hat, Barr talked about the passion and love she has for working on the family farm, and her reminder for passers-by that farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hay is what makes possible the tasty steaks on your barbecue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was deďŹ nitely an amazing experience,â&#x20AC;? said Barr, who was sponsored by Barr Sand & Gravel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I enjoyed every minute of it. I felt I had a great time, I loved my dress, and I was just glad to be here.â&#x20AC;? Second runner-up was Emily Shirmer, a former Barryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bay and Huntsville resident, who now lives in Ottawa. Other winners included Kaitland Coupal of Renfrew for the photogenic award. Other Renfrew delegates were Anjela Dawe, Elysa Essiambre (one of the talent contest ďŹ nalists), Jacqueline Gauvreau, Cricket Guest, Vanessa Johnston, Lindsay Lynch, Sarah Malatestra, Jayda McLaren, Amber Nykyforak, Kennedy Payton and Taitum Sammon. Delegates included Ali Hennessy of Cobden. One of the eveningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most emotional presentations was for the ambassadorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s award, now called the Lindsay Norton Memorial Award, to Paplinskie. Introductory comments were by Nortonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s aunt, Annette Miller. The presentation was by Nortonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s godmother Nancy Cameron and godson Jacob Miller, 11. The award honours the former delegate, who was second runner-up and winner of the Ambassadorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Award in the 2002 Teen Ontario East Pageant. Shortly afterwards, she died in a vehicular accident. The judges were Pat Woodcock of

Shawville resident looks to sell Dionne quintuplet’s pearl necklaces Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

News - Turn on CBC Television Sunday night and see if Shawville resident Leonard Belsher gets what he wants for five pearl necklaces once owned by the Dionne quintuplets as infants. In the new CBC series, members of the public face four buyers in efforts to sell their particular product. The catch is that the seller can visit only one of four potential buyers at a time and, if they turn down that buyer’s offer, the offer is off the table for good. The seller has four chances to make, or lose a fortune. A Shawville mailman and long-time collector of Dionne quintuplet memorabilia, Belsher auditioned about a year ago for Four Rooms, then returned last August to film a sequence for the program. Belsher will appear on CBC

Leonard Belsher of Shawville before the filming of his segment on CBC’s Four Rooms. Sunday, April 13 at 8:30 p.m. along with host Reshmi Nair and buyers, including Vancouver resident Scott Landon, a former RCMP officer, owner of Scott Landon Antiques and leading Canadian expert in Canadiana, and Toronto-based Jessica Lindsay Phillips, a private collector, curator and director of the Billy Jamieson-Niagara Falls Museum.

The other buyers are Derreck Martin, owner of Toronto’s 507 Antiques, and Montreal-based Eddy Rogo, co-owner of Empire Auctions and auctioneer with more than 25 years’ experience in buying and selling the world’s finest antiques. Belsher, 54, says his connection to the Dionne quintuplets of Corbeil, in northern Ontario, has been long-standing. Their

birth, says Belsher, put the spotlight on Canada, a spotlight that Belsher’s dad, Perley, felt somewhat when he visited the quintuplets when five years old, just before the Second World War. Belsher is bringing on the CBC show the fresh-water pearl necklaces that were eventually given to Yvonne Leroux, the first nurse on the scene when the quintuplets were born. Leroux retained the pearl necklaces for the rest of her life, while Belsher obtained them after they were purchased from Leroux’s estate. “As a long-time collector of Dionne quintuplet memorabilia, it has been important to me to share the story of the incredible birth of the first quintuplets ever to survive beyond infancy,” said Belsher. The show happens shortly before the 80th birthday of the two surviving Dionnes. Annette and Cecile turn 80 on May 28, 2014.

Darch saluted by Admaston-Bromley council

PASSING THE TEST

Council received a letter from Ontario fire marshal Ted Wieclawek acknowledging that the municipality is in full compliance with the emergency management control group. It is staying on top of all the requirements of Emergency Management of Ontario. Coun. Donohue commended Bill Bowles, chair of the emergency management committee, on his diligent work in ensuring that the township stays compliant. Mayor Briscoe also recognized council committee representative Donohue. “It takes a whole committee to arrive at this positive conclusion. It’s a safety feature for

all the people in the community.” BEAR HUNT

Northern Ontario has a pilot project for

a spring bear hunt and council passed a resolution that the province consider extending the spring hunt to the rest of the province.

Bears become a nuisance up north in the spring, and it’s no different here, Coun. Robert Dick noted,. He said, there

has been significant crop damage since the provincial government cut off the spring bear hunt a number of years ago.

News - Renfrew County engineering director David Darch has retired after a 46year career, mainly in public works, and his commitment didn’t go unnoticed at Admaston-Bromley council. Mayor RayeAnne Briscoe asked clerk-treasurer Annette Louis to send a letter or email “on behalf of council, ratepayers and staff thanking Dave for his many years of excellent service.” “It’s not every time that a director that is responsible for a specific department has as much care, concern and impact and participation in the corporation as a whole, and David always did. He started a lot of good things,” Mayor Briscoe said. Coun. Michael Donohue added: “He also demonstrated sensitivity to the ultimate taxpayers in the county when the bridge in Douglas was being repaired. The initial

plan was to close it down. I felt very good about the fact that Dave and the department responded to the concerns of the area, and was sensitive. “That’s one of the things about local government. The person that makes the decision can hear right from the people.” “He is very approachable,” Coun. Robert Dick said.

A national treasure right on our doorstep at Shaw Woods Bromley Historical Society

News - The Shaw Woods, one of eastern Canada’s premier old growth forests, exists just on the doorstep of the former Bromley Township along the Bulgers’ Corner Road. The Bromley Historical Society is pleased to invite members of the public to come and learn more about this natural – and national – treasure in a presentation by Grant Dobson and Wayne Remus on Saturday, April 12 at 2 p.m. in the Old Town

mill and three-story gristmill. The firm he founded is now the oldest familyowned lumber business in Canada.” The Shaw Woods were carefully protected for generations thanks to the Shaw family. Recently, the Shaw Woods Outdoor Education Centre (SWOEC), a local not-for-profit charitable organization, was formed to oversee enhanced interpretive and educational opportunities on the site. The Woods covers over 200 hectares, comprising 13 kilometres of self-guided walk-

Hall, 498 Micksburg Road, Osceola. “John Shaw was originally from Inverness, Scotland,” explains Grant Dobson. “He and his wife, Barbara, and their two-yearold son John II arrived by canoe from Bytown in 1847. “In those days, there were only a few families living in the united townships of Wilberforce, Grattan and Fraser. Shaw was drawn to the area by the potential waterpower of the Snake River, and he quickly established a saw-

ing trails that meander through both forest and wetlands. On the “west side” is the protected oldgrowth forest; on the “east side,” trails run beside the Snake River with a lookout high above Shaw Pond along the Dore Scarp. “Our mandate,” Dobson continues, “is to foster an ethic of responsible environmental stewardship and highlight sound forest management practice, which reflects the legacy of the Shaw owners down through the years. We want to respect and protect the Shaw Woods

for generations to come. Reaching out to the public is important and so we have established a website (www.shawwoods.ca) and can be found on Facebook.” Wayne Remus and Dobson, both members of SWOEC, will talk about the history of and the plans for the site, which draws many visitors and has received rave reviews in the press. The presentation is open to the public and is free. Refreshments will be served following the talk.

Arnprior White Pine Festival set for Aug. 22 to 24 Lifestyle – The annual Arnprior White Pine Festival will be back Aug. 22 to 24 for its fifth year bigger, better and more exciting than ever, organizers promise.

The old Model T kicks the ghost temporarily in Renfrew I could see was the Northcote Side Road zooming by. It was a lovely day for a first drive, Mother commented, as Father turned out of our lane, and passed Briscoe’s General Store. I could hear the purr of the engine, as he worked the lever under the steering wheel increasing the speed. It was a bone shattering ride over the washboard road, and the dust blew into the open car like brown clouds. My sister Audrey wisely brought a silk scarf, which she tied around her face. The rest of us covered our eyes as best we could. Father cut the gas back as we headed down Raglan Street, looking for a place to park the Model T. And suddenly, just like the run-down of a windup clock, the Model T gave a gasp, and stopped dead in the middle of the street. Father shoved the gas lever up and down, pulled on the choke, and the car with a mind of its own, sat there like a big black lump of clay.

Mary Cook’s Memories MARY COOK

Father got out with the crank, and with the sweat pouring off his face, his arm flying off the crank on occasion, and the Model T, like a rebellious child refused to catch. It wouldn’t have been so bad if Father had been able to steer the car into the curb, but there it sat, right in the middle of Raglan Street. Audrey offered me a nickel if I would change places with her. She wanted on the floor so no one would see her. I said I would consider it for a dime. All she had was a nickel, and so I stayed crouched on the floor. Mother was fanning herself with her purse in the front seat, Emerson said he would

meet us at Thacker’s Garage when Father got the car going, and Everett and Earl decided they would have a look in the Five and Ten Cent store. Mother said everyone would stay exactly where they were! “We aren’t going to traipse all over Renfrew when we get the car going and are ready to go home,” she said. “If we get the car going,” Audrey said, from under the silk scarf which now covered her entire face, except for her eyes, reminding me of a picture of someone from a foreign land in a book I brought home from the Renfrew Library. A crowd had gathered on the sidewalk in front of Scott’s Hardware where the car had broken down. Mother waved

to a few of them just as if it was an everyday occurrence to be stopped dead in the middle of the main street of Renfrew! “Nice day,” she said. The people nodded in return. Mr. Scott came out of the store, assessed the situation, and deciding the problem was doing nothing for his business, he offered to have the two men on his staff, with the help of Father and my three brothers, start pushing the car towards Thacker’s Garage. Mother stayed in the front seat, I got off the floor, Audrey shot down like a bullet to take my place, and the car with Father behind the wheel started slowly down Raglan Street to Thacker’s garage. It didn’t take long for Mr. Thacker to figure out what was wrong, and he circled the car, shaking his head, kicking the tires with the toe of his boot, and telling Father the car wasn’t long for this world! Whatever Mr. Thacker did, the car was purring like a kitten when we pulled out of the

garage, and Mother said she was sure we could manage without stopping for supplies for one week, and that the best thing we could do was head for Northcote. You couldn’t hear what Mother was saying to Father in the front seat, but he pulled into Briscoe’s General Store on the way home. She said once we stopped, since we hadn’t spent any money in Renfrew, she saw no reason why we couldn’t all have an ice cream cone. Father wasn’t taking any chances. While we five children and Mother traipsed into the store, Father stayed in the car with the motor running just in case the old Model T took another notion to give up the ghost.

Lifestyle - “Finally!” Mother said, as Father backed the old Model T out of the drive shed where it had been sitting up on blocks since the first heavy snowfall. That meant our trips into Renfrew no longer meant hitching up the horse and cutter, or in some cases, the team and the flat-bottom sleigh every Saturday for our weekly supplies. We were all so excited, Mother said she saw no reason why we five children couldn’t go in as well, since it was our first trip with the car that year. It didn’t take long for us to get out of our Saturday work clothes and into our next-toSunday-best, wash our faces, comb our hair, and make sure our necks were clean. The old car sure wasn’t much to look at, with one back door missing, a fender that was painted an entirely different colour from the rest of the car, and a hole as big as a pie plate in the back floor where I had to sit being the youngest, and from which point all

NATURE

Connected to your community

Slowly but surely, many familiar birds are returning to Renfrew and area tions at the same time. Give your bluebird boxes a cleaning, if you can get to them through the deep snow.

Scene from the Hawks’ Eye

Lifestyle - Because of the “old fashioned winter” we had, there have been some bits and pieces of bird behaviour that are not the same as were displayed during the past several years. The first robins appeared at Sheldon and Basia Stewart’s garden this week as did a bird at Clarence Bos’ feeder, aweek or two late.. The new arrivals are much brighter in colour. Robins that remained here all winter look a bit worn and they may not moult and gain their new plumage for a few weeks yet. Birds return from the south in waves over a wide front, arriving in Renfrew and in St. Thomas (checked with my brother Stuart) many hundreds of kilometres away on the same day. There will be several waves arriving on different days depending on their take-off point. A single bluebird scout arrived at Marlene Hanneman’s garden at Ferguslea on Saturday, about two weeks behind schedule. They too will be turning up at several different loca-

CROWS CALL

Regina and Ray Puhalski returned from a winter holiday to a noisy murder of crows in the area behind their home. Prior to the final breakup of the winter flocks into mated pairs, there will be much chasing, calling and diving and some serious fights between flock members until the pairs go to their chosen nest site. There may be one or two extra birds at the site, usually the previous year’s young. They do not nest but help defend the nest against any intruders. They may also feed the female, not as yet proven, but some reports have been received. CANADA GEESE

Francine Cameron saw a pair of Canada geese on her way into work in Ottawa on Thursday morning. That number increased tremendously into huge flocks by Friday morning

The Foxden

when she went into work. The birds were seen in their usual space, flying in across the Queensway and settling in the fields along the road. We do believe it is a dangerous practice but once the geese decide on a resting and feeding place little can be done to encourage them to move. If you are driving into the city please be careful as the birds can be a distraction. SANDHILL CRANES

We received an email from Jim and Hisje Anderson in Florida and they say the sandhill cranes are already raising two chicks and that whole family are strutting around his yard as if they owned the place. It will be a while before the cranes we have will be escorting their young around. Terry Cunningham saw a single crane this week an early bird looking for a nest site. They usually fly south as a family but break up during their winter stay in Mexico. SPECIAL REPORT

search work on Kirtland’s Warbler published in the Journal of the Ontario Field Ornithologists. She has her Master of Science Degree and is a Wildlife/Species at Risk Biologist with the Department of National Defence at Garrison Petawawa. Her research was conducted on the rarest of North American Warblers between 2006 and 2013. Her work brought a whole new dimension to understanding this rare and beautiful bird. We congratulate her for her work. GRAY PARTRIDGE

We received this email from Hilary Packard at Mink Lake. There is one of these partridges coming to my yard to collect fallen bird seed fairly regularly. On two occasions, there have been two. I had originally identified them (erroneously!) as spruce grouse. When startled, the one had a slight crest and I have

not seen mention of this except for ruffed grouse, and this bird is not a ruffed grouse, unless there is a possibility for genetic cross-breeding. This is the first time I have ever seen these birds. This ‘new’ bird (for me) was in fact a gray partridge. ORIOLE NEST

Terry Cunningham sent us a picture of a Baltimore oriole nest in a tree near his home. Oriole nests are unique. The nest is a deep pouch suspended between two branches and woven of cedar bark, milkweed down, plant fibres, string and grapevine bark. It is a good time to look for nests as they are easy to see without leaves on the trees. Enjoy your birding.

Chamber of Commerce president says 2013 highlighted by many events Peter Clark

“Our awards gala was one of our most successful to date,” Campbell said. “It had a record attendance and we turned a significant profit ($3,000).” The final event of the year was the Mayors’ Breakfast. “That was nine events over the course of 12 months in a transition year,” Campbell said. He sent out a “huge thank-you” to chair Arlene Jamieson and the events committee. Treasurer Kent Tubman pointed out that the chamber netted a profit of $5,371.28 in 2013. The projected income

News - The Renfrew and Area Chamber of Commerce has a new president. At the chamber’s annual general meeting in the Renfrew Recreation Centre March 25, past treasurer Kent Tubman was elected president for the 2014-15 term. Outgoing president Rob Campbell said a lot of transition took place in 2013 as four new committees were added to the chamber – executive committee, marketing and events, membership, and community development. Membership is at 188, up from 182 in 2013. The executive committee will conduct chamber business on a more regular basis. The marketing committee is working on ways of getting more out of membership. “It’s one thing to join the chamber. It’s another to get value out of it,” Campbell said. Community development is working on partnerships, and for the chamber to have a better influence in the community. With this being a municipal election year, the chamber is interested in hosting an all-candidates debate, Campbell said. “We can do it, but we have multiple municipalities. As the Renfrew and Area Chamber of Commerce, we have Renfrew, Horton, Admaston-Bromley and Greater Madawaska. Do we have an event in each municipality? We haven’t figured out the logistics yet, but we definitely have a lot of interest.” May 17, 2013 was office manager Tammy Logan’s last day with the chamber. He successor was Cindy Andrews, as general manager. More, recently, she was succeeded by Gail Laird, effective March 31. Because of the chamber’s budget, hours of office operation have been reduced. They are now open 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., back from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Campbell called 2013 a successful and busy year. Events included a networking breakfast with Bruce Firestone in February. “We had well over 100 people in attendance for that,” Campbell recalled. Other early-year events were the Home and Leisure Show in co-operation with myFM, and the AGM as a brainstorming session with the board and a few members. The AGM was changed from the format that used to feature a guest speaker. “The big new project for us was the Wolves Den – how we engage youth in entrepreneurship,” Campbell said. “The Wolves Den was a extremely successful project. It took a lot of our resources, and it came off very, very well. It looks like the county will be doing something similar.” Newcomers Night in late summer is an annual event to welcome new citizens to Renfrew and area. “Taste of the Valley was an outstanding success despite brutal weather,” Campbell said.

for 2014 is about $2,800. The 2014 executive consists of president Kent Tubman, vice-president Angela Kluke, past-president Rob Campbell, secretary-treasurer Mike Coulas, directors Joy Curry, Amy Rule, Leslie Osborne, Jason Marshall, Mel Blimkie (Business Improvement Area), Dave Lemkay (Renfrew Industrial Commission), Byron Hermann (Calabogie and Area Business Association), and municipality rep Michael Donohue (Admaston-Bromley), Margaret Whyte (Horton) and Bruno Kierczak (Greater Madawaska).

The place is the product, says tourism expert want to explore different cultures with an emphasis on learning enrichment and fun, with all appeal to all five senses. They want experiences that are “distinctive, authentic and memorable.” “A destination’s most strategic asset is its cultural character; its sense of place,” Thorne said. He encourages communities to capitalize on history and heritage, using a strategy based on narrative and stories, landscape, streetscape and people. Thorne also promotes creating “a web of interconnectivity” comprised of human heritage, agriculture and industry, the arts, cuisine and natural history. As people we shape the land we inherit, and the land shapes us, he said.

News - The tourism industry is evolving, and the Calabogie area is well positioned to grow its reach to domestic and international travellers. Last week Steven Thorne of TEAM Tourism Consulting – an expert in place-based cultural tourism – spent three days in Calabogie and area, assessing the region’s potential and hosting an information-and-stakeholder input session. His objective at Thursday’s seminar was to illustrate why place is the key to cultural tourism and how to unlock its treasures and economic dividends. “Simply put, the place is the product,” Thorne said. His assessment and final report based on local interviews and the April 3 workshop will be presented to Greater Madawaska council and the Calabogie and Area Business Association (CABA) in the coming weeks. Implementing a place-based tourism strategy will take time. The first step would be to define jurisdiction – whether a region or corridor. “Small is beautiful in place-based tourism,” said Thorne, noting any new strategy could include several “loop” tours. “It involves a lot of data collection,” he said. That work could include interviews, collecting oral histories and library research. Thorne is already impressed by what he sees in the Calabogie area. “I am delighted by what I find here,” said Thorne. “What I’ve seen here, and I’ve seen only a sampling, has really thrilled me.” He was particularly “blown away” by Neat Cafe in Burnstown, which he said offers world-class musical acts, terrific food and great coffee. “There’s a lot that seems to be around every corner,” he said. The goal, he said, is to weave all the community has to offer into a tapestry of experience. “It’s about a social fabric, a pride of place,” said Thorne. Thorne’s audience identified some of the challenges that lie ahead, like how you get local people to buy into the importance of tourism, and how you craft an identity from a broad range of conflicting interests and beliefs. Thorne said the objective is to market a region’s people, history and culture, not just tourist attractions. “Cultural travellers typically are very interested in who you are,” he said.

ing to share that with others. For the past decade, Thorne has helped communities to identify their cultural tourism assets. He contributed to, and was an editorial advisor for, the publication Cultural and Heritage Tourism: A Handbook for Community Champions. Canada’s tourism industry generated $82.4 billion in annual revenue in 2012 and created 608,500 direct or indirect jobs. Thorne said the market is out there to be tapped as culture-based tourism is “growing in leaps and bounds.” Statistics point to a healthy baby boom population – a group that is largely mortgage-free and poised to inherit up to $10 trillion from their parents. Among this group, many

It takes time to create a cultural identity as strong as, say, Newfoundland and Labrador, which has crafted a tourism strategy around the warmth of the people and cultural uniqueness from dialect to architecture. “I would say it’s an evolutionary process,” Thorne said. The tiny village of Wilno was cited as a good example of a Renfrew County tourism success story; a community that is reaping the rewards of cultural identity. During the seminar a woman from Perth also recounted her experience promoting local theatre, and how having local people as greeters adds to the visitor experience. The bottom line is having pride in your community, its history and people, and want-

Super scientists at QEPS Anne Lefebvre Queen Elizabeth Public School

News - Queen Elizabeth Public School in Renfrew is the home of several budding scientists, whose involvement in Destination ImagiNation (DI) has tapped into their creativity, amped up their confidence, and launched them into new and exciting challenges! Destination ImagiNation is a program designed to foster creativity, problem-solving, and inquiry skills for children of all ages. Students work in teams of four to seven to choose a challenge and come up with a unique way to solve it. The students must create their solutions independently, without any adult interference. The teams also practice solving instant challenges, where they are required to quickly solve a problem on the spot in as creative and effective a way as possible. DI prepares kids to be independent thinkers and gives them the confidence to tackle new things. This year, QEPS opened the DI program to all students in Grades 3-6. Those students who were interested in participating took a note home telling their parents about their commitment (recesses and after school). From there, students had to participate in try-outs for three days. Seven teachers assisted in assessing the students â&#x20AC;&#x201C; looking for good communication, problem solving, creativity, and collaborative group skills. The final 20 students were asked to write an essay to convince the appraisers in 100 words or less why they should be on the team. Two teams were formed: seven students from Grades 3-5, called the Queen Elizabeth Crushers, and five students from Grades 5 and

6 called the Queen E. Eagles. The Crushers are Tal Stevenson, Sadie Cuccaro, Sam Buxton, Ben Cracknell, Carson Lefebvre, Hannah Hubert, and Kenya Stevenson, managed by Jayne Stevenson. The Eagles are Cassidy Friske, Olivia Smart, Malorey Lambert, Wes Matthews, and Gabrielle Carthy, managed by Anne Lefebvre. Because the Eagles had two Grade 6 students on their team, they faced a greater challenge as they had to compete in the Intermediate (Gr. 6-8) category. The two teams competed at the regional level, where the Crushers finished first and Eagles third. Both teams then qualified to go to provincials which were held in Toronto March 29. This trip was supported by the generosity of Ottawa Valley Automation, Scapa, Times Fibre, McNab Stewart and Prince, and Joseph Legris-Lawyer. There was excitement in the air and the tension was high as the Crushers and Eagles faced new opponents. Both teams upped their game and improved their scores. The Eagles, competing in a category with very experienced teams, had the judges laughing with their skit! Not only that, but their wood and glue structure held 215 pounds when tested! In the end, they placed 6th out of 12 teams â&#x20AC;&#x201C; an excellent accomplishment considering the level of competition. The Crushers faced a new challenge when they had to do their performance. Badminton playing is a key part of their skit, but the lowceiling performance room made this difficult. Backed by Sam Buxtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s improv and Ben Cracknell and Carson Lefebvreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quick badminton moves, the team rallied and ended up placing second..This qualifies them to move on

Fundraising is underway to send students from Queen Elizabeth Public School to Tennessee for the Destination ImagiNation finals. The Renfrew team includes, from left, front row, Sadie Cuccaro and Sam Buxton, and back row, Hannah Hubert, Tal Stevenson, Ben Cracknell, Carson Lefebvre and Kenya Stevenson. to the Global Finals in Knoxville, Tenn. They are the only Renfrew County DSB team to do so. The global event spans five days from May 20 to 24, during which the students can attend science workshops, experiment with new products, and meet people from all over the world, as well as compete against other finalists in their challenge. The Crushers are now tackling their greatest challenge of all â&#x20AC;&#x201C; finding the funds to pay

for their once-in-a-lifetime trip. The team has begun actively fundraising. They are looking for sponsors to help with costs associated with flights, accommodations, and meal plans. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to support the Crushersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; dream, please contact Queen Elizabeth P.S.

The Renfrew Minor Hockey Association introduced its board for the 2014-15 hockey season. In front row, from left, are Helen Pearse, A.J. White, Kim Greer, Richard Daber and Derek Scheuneman; and standing, Bryan Schutt, Ann Stephens, Sandy McGarry, Jason Spencer, Randy Pender, Jeff Rekowski and Ryan Bleeks. Missing is Paul Simard.

Never too early to look ahead to 2014-15 season for RMHA Peter Clark peter.clark@metroland.com

Sports - The Renfrew Minor Hockey Association had 53 people out for its annual general meeting at the Ma-TeWay Activity Centre March 23. Parents had to be pleased with the way the 2013-14 season panned out as few questions were asked throughout the meeting, and none during a question period following the election of next year’s executive. President Kim Greer thanked the team sponsors. “We had 244 children this year benefit from your generosity,” she said. “We also had 88 people volunteer (coaches, trainers, managers) this year,.” The president also thanked parents and guardians “for selling 50-50 tickets, volunteering time at tournaments, and chauffeuring the players to games all over the Valley.” Greer also saluted her follow executive members for their countless hours. Whether or not mouthguards will be mandatory next season will be voted on at the Ottawa District Minor Hockey Association level in June. RMHA coaching applications are availing online. The

deadline is May 31 for rep team coaches, and the end of August for house league. People can also register their kids for 2014-15 online. Two fundraising events this summer being considered by the association is a youth ball hockey event and/or a golf tournament. Minor hockey’s Nevada tickets are located at Irving Gas on Stewart Street. Greer also noted that the cost of ice time is going up from $6 per hour to $7.35. There will be a second fee hike in two years. This past year was bit better than they thought in terms of registration fees, treasurer A.J. White noted. Overall, 244 kids played in the RMHA, broken down into initiation program 38, novice 39, atom 44, peewee 46, bantam 43 and midget 34. “Included in those numbers were 43 kids which were new in the RMHA,” White added. Thirty-three people left. Thirteen kids quit, 14 went to the Ottawa Valley Aces, three to the Ottawa Valley Titans, and three moved out to other associations. The RMHA used 850 hours of ice time.

Vikings reach bronze medal game at provincial volleyball championships Peter Clark peter.clark@metroland.com

Sports - For a team ranked 21st in a 22-team loop, climbing all the way to fourth place is an accomplished achievement. The Upper Ottawa Valley Vikings Volleyball Club defied the tournament oddsmakers, and showed up for the bronze-medal match on the final day of the Ontario Volleyball Association’s provincial championships in Waterloo. The tournament ran March 27 to 30. DIVISION COMPETITIVE

The Vikings got off to a slow and nervous start in a good five-team division. Themselves included, three of the five teams in their pool qualified for the medal round. All matches were best-ofthree, and in first of four Friday matches, the Vikings fell to Forest City of London 2514, 25-12. Game two was much tighter, but the local girls came up

Brown seventh in North Alabama Peter Clark peter.clark@metroland.com

Sports - Renfrew Collegiate Raider alumni Cooper Brown finished in a three-way tie for seventh place at the 2014 Jim Bishop Toyota Golf Classic The tournament was hosted by the University of North Alabama at the Fighting Joe Course of the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail Monday and Tuesday, March 24 and 25.

Brown, in his freshman year with the Wallace State Community College Lions in Hanceville, Ala., fired rounds of 77, 72 and 77 in the 54-hole event. His final round 77 came in less than ideal weather conditions. Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 226 total put him 10 over par for the tournament, and just one stroke away from a fourth-place finish. His score was tops among his

team of five Lions in the tournament. Wallace State finished in eighth place overall as a school. The tournament champion, Trent Alexander of host North Alabama, carded a 2-over par score of 218 (69, 70, 79), eight strokes better than Brown and two others. Overall, North Alabama posted a 910 total for its five golfers. Wallace State was 19 shots off the pace.

Jaguars win B title The St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jaguars dropped the opening game of a high school junior boys hockey tournament at the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre to the eventual tournament champion Bishop Smith Crusaders. But the Jaguars bounced back quickly with wins over the Jeanne Lajoie Chevaliers 5-2 and Pontiac High School 9-2 to claim the B championship. The Jaguarsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Charlie Strader works his way to the front of the net in action versus Jeanne Lajoie.

RENFREW MIXED VOLLEYBALL LEAGUE

Sports - It wasn’t the way the Renfrew Bantam Timberwolves had planned on ending the 2013-14 season at the Eastern Ontario Tournament of Champions. Two late game powerplay goals by the Kanata Blazers gave the tournament hosts a 3-2 win that didn’t sit well with the Renfrew team. They voiced their opinion after the game. Still, the Bantam Wolves came back to post a 3-1 win over Smiths Falls, and then shut down the North Glengarry Stormont Braves 12-0. The 2-and-1 record and plus13 goals for versus goals against ratio wasn’t enough to push Renfrew through to the playoffs in the five-team tournament. Nicholas Fleguel, John Agnew and Ben Scheuneman all scored three goals for the Bantam Wolves. L a w s o n Leclaire added a pair, while singles came from Zach Moran, Jake McGrimmon, Brock Pierce, Connor Fulton, Ryan Boudreau and Jared Burnette. Luke Moran tended goal in the game versus Kanata. Bryce Schaap backstopped the remaining two games, and registered the shutout. Brock Pierce, John Agnew and Connor Fulton were Renfrew game MVPs.

Sports - Seven local wrestlers qualified for OFSAA (Ontario High School provincial championships) by placing in the top two at the EOSSAA (Eastern Ontario Secondary School Athletic Association) championships in February. Travelling to Brampton for the OFSAA championships in March, two of these wrestlers were seeded in their OFSAA weight classes according to their placing last year. It should be noted that in the sport of wrestling, all sizes of schools compete together, regardless if you are a student in a large AAA school or smaller. As well, there is only one age group. Therefore Grade 9 students may be competing against second-year Grade 12 students. Wrestlers compete in a weight class of 32 where competition is very high. Many wrestlers compete at this tournament who practice with university or clubs where practices are more intense. The Renfrew club, under the leadership of team head coach Harry Smith, runs a program where various elite coaches bring their varied expertise to our local wrestlers. Throughout the season Harry also arranges members to practice with Ottawa and Montreal clubs. Jake Cartman was one of the shining lights at OFSAA this year, capturing a silver medal. Jake, a Grade 12 student at Renfrew Collegiate Institute, wrestled exceptionally well with few challenges during the season. Jake was at a disadvantage as

Lifestyle - Gwynne Dyer presented a university-style lecture on his historical views of warfare to over 200 RCI and RCIS students in the gym on March 24. Pulling from his vast knowledge as a journalist, columnist, broadcaster, lecturer and service person who served in three navies, Dyer first spoke about the history and etiquette of war between two opposing armies, and their traditional weaponry. Afterwards he moved on to the topic of World War One with a focus on how the advancement in technology and weaponry had made a WWI soldier more precise and dangerous. “The First World War was a horrifying surprise for the young Canadians

The Renfrew Mercury EMC - Thursday, April 10, 2014 39


Connected to your community

Term at St. Joseph’s High ends with overnight fast Lifestyle - Tomorrow, April 11, marks the end of this term, and students are now entering into the final few months of the school year. The countdown to summer has begun! This evening, a number of students are spending the night at SJHS. Every year, the pastoral team organizes an overnight fast. This year, the group is supporting the Renfrew food bank by pledging to not eat for 24 hours. To allow time for additional teams to enter, the Hoops for Heart charity basketball tournament has been postponed until May 2. The money raised from this event will be donated to the Heart and Stroke Foundation. In preparation for next year, student council will begin the election process, with the nominations opening on April 21. Students will then begin campaigning on April 28 and elections will take place on Friday, May 9. Holding these elections earlier than in previous years will provide

ABBY HALL Jaguar Journal new candidates with the opportunity to shadow current ministers for a period of time, allowing for a smooth transition between administrations. The week leading up to elections is especially busy, as both Catholic Education Week and our second Spirit Week fall on May 5-9. The week following elections will be incredibly busy, as the first musical performance is scheduled for May 13. After numerous hours of rehearsing, and many more to go, the classic tale of Beauty and the Beast is beginning to come together on the SJHS stage. We can’t wait to see it!

We Day

Continued from page 37

Guests include Free The Children founders and event hosts Marc and Craig Kielburger, Her Majesty Queen Noor of Jordan, Martin Luther King III, National Chief Shawn A-in-chut Atleo, Simple Plan, Kardinal Offishall, Neverest, JRDN, Gen and Jas, Spencer West, Hannah Alper, Vishal Vijay and many more. Courtney, a Grade 12 RCI student who has travelled to Kenya twice as part of the Free The Children organization, will join a few other special guests on the main stage to share her experiences and tell the audience “how Kenya influenced me as I developed as a person.” RCI teacher and Free The Children staff representative Michael Wright said choosing Courtney was an easy decision. “She’s a two-time traveller to Kenya and truly one of our best and brightest students in the board,” he said. “She is so excited to have this opportunity and I am equally excited for her.” Courtney said she found out about the excit-

ing news while out prom dress shopping with her mom. “I was completely surprised,” she said. This will be Courtney’s fourth We Day experience, having attended the Gatineau event last year and travelling to Toronto twice. Courtney has also been a key organizer for RCI’s huge fundraising efforts for the last four Relay for Life events held in Renfrew. RCI has raised more than $500,000 for Relay For Life over the years. Courtney is also a member of RCI’s Link Crew which helps new students acclimatize to life in high school. She also ran for the RCDSB student trustee position in 2013. “I’m the Free The Children poster child,” she says with a laugh. Courtney says her trip to Kenya did indeed change her life. “In general it made me more grateful for what I have,” she said. “It opened my eyes to what I truly need to be happy – my family and my family’s love. It gave me an idea of what I want to do in my life.”

RAFTER, Laurie (Retired –Boeing, Arnprior)

Suddenly, but peacefully, at the Arnprior and District Memorial Hospital after having performed his final surgery on Wednesday afternoon, March 26, 2014, José passed away.

Born in Panavežys, Lithuania, on September 26, 1940, to parents Elena Urbšys and Dr. Vladas Gutauskas, José fled communist rule to grow up in Venezuela in the foothills of the Andes Mountains. There, he was mentored by his father, a practicing surgeon. At the young age of 17, he moved alone to Ottawa, where he was welcomed by Dr. Agatha Sidlauskas and the Lemay family. Ottawa has been his home ever since. He enjoyed a distinguished career as a respected general surgeon in the Ottawa area for over 40 years. He was a graduate of the University of Ottawa School of Medicine (1968). He completed his internship at the Toronto General Hospital and his residency at the Ottawa Civic Hospital. He practiced at the Salvation Army Grace Hospital, the Queensway Carleton Hospital, and the Arnprior and District Memorial Hospital. Since 2009, he drew great joy and comfort from sharing his surgical practice with his daughter, Dr. Andrea Gutauskas.
