given voice in new noise bylaw

Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

Six more Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medals presented.

The outdated Horton Township noise bylaw is being redone with help from its residents. A draft of the new noise bylaw was placed on the Horton website last autumn for public viewing and feedback, including recommendations regarding content and perceived omissions. At the April 2 session of Horton council, Mayor Don Eady said there has been a lot of response, which has turned the document into a better bylaw. “That process has worked,” said Eady. “And the public appreciates it too,” added chief administrative officer Mackie McLaren.

Barclay Mayhew is no stranger to the Renfrew department of parks and recreation. He worked early in his career in the late ʻ70s for the department in the town where he grew up, and he is finishing a short-term contract as the part-time recreation director. But now itʼs time to look for a permanent director. Mayhew, whoʼs a resident of Kingston, has been working two or three days a week as the acting director since November 2011, following the dismissal a few years ago of Kelly Whitman-McKie. Council announced at its March 25 meeting that it is now looking to fill the vacancy for a full-time director. See RECREATION, page 3

Exciting night at the pageant: Bergin wins steve.newman@metroland.com

The annual Miss Teen Ontario East Pageant was about a whole lot more than beauty. The 20 delegates put their best foot forward, in high heels, before an enthusiastic crowd of more than 350 people at the Renfrew Recreation Centre. But they also strutted a lot more than evening gowns and photogenic qualities, which accounted for just two of the eight individual awards. There were also awards presented, during the threehour show, for best interview, charity and talent, as well as the Lindsay Norton Memorial Award, formerly the Ambassadorʼs Award. A ceremonial cheque was presented to Jocelyn Lamont of the Candlelighters for $2,468, although the final amount raised by pageant delegates will actually exceed $2,500. Winning the charity award, for raising more than $1,400 of that total, was Kaitlyn Kargus of Renfrew. Allison MacKenzie of Kinburn took home the Lindsay Norton, named after the 2002 pageant second runner-up who was an avid supporter of organ donation. In fact, her death a few years ago resulted in organ donations to nine individuals. The award goes to an allaround participant, who brings perseverance, other positive contributions and friendship to the pageant. There were also two other awards, which didnʼt factor into the judging panelʼs final scores to determine the pageant winner and first and second runner-up. Bailey Plunkett of Renfrew won the friendship award that was voted on by all delegates, while a Teen East Ontario merit award went to Breigh Whalen of Douglas. But the best of the honours went to Sonya Bergin of Renfrew, as pageant champion. An indication she might be in the running happened in the three-delegate talent final. The 16-year-old Grade 11 student at St. Josephʼs Catholic High School played the keyboard and provided powerful vocals for Sara McLachlanʼs song, Angel. The other talent finalists were Erin Humphrey of Renfrew and Cassidy Whitelock of Arnprior. “My expectations were that it was going to be a lot of work and a lot of fun,” said Bergin. By becoming Miss Teen Ontario East Pageantʼs most recent princess, Bergin knows this year will be like none other. “It means a new start and lots of fundraising … and be-

ing a good role model,” added Bergin, whose family members watching from the stands included parents Michael and Penny. Announcing most of the winners were show emcees Jason Smith and Grace Stewart, the 2012 Miss Teen Ontario East Pageant title-holder.

RUNNERS-UP EMOTONAL SPEECH

Eventual runner-up Saralyn Deslaurier of Renfrew won the first individual award of the evening, as the most photogenic contestant. Eventual second runner-up Tianna Tetteler of Barryʼs Bay also showed she was going to be in the running by winning the evening-wear and best-interview awards. Bergin, who watched previous editions of this pageant from the audience, said her reasons for participating included the fundraising efforts for an important cause — namely the Candlelighters childhood cancer support programs, which support eastern Ontario young cancer patients and their families. Runner-up Deslaurier had plenty of family support in the crowd, too, including grandparents, siblings Bonnie, Emily and Michael, and parents Jim and Mary. The Grade 11 student at Renfrew Collegiate Institute called the preparation for and participation in the pageant, which had all delegates on-site since Thursday, amazing. “I didnʼt have many expectations,” said the 17-year-old, who was convinced to enter the pageant by cancer survivor Paige Dillabough of Renfrew. “I really wanted to be there for the experience and I just wanted to have fun.” Without catching her breath, Deslaurier added enthusiastically, “Iʼm just so happy. Iʼm

Another emotional time was Miss Teen Ontario East Pageant winner Grace Stewartʼs outgoing speech. “Donʼt cry because itʼs over; smile because it happened,” said Stewart, quoting Dr. Seuss. Looking back, she said the year has presented her “with a gift inside of a gift, and has been nothing short of amazing. It has been wonderful to participate in a wide variety of charity events, from flipping burgers at BBQs to taking pledges and hosting various telethons.” She said her growth in the past year has happened in profound ways, both emotionally and spiritually. She then Jill Barr of Renfrew takes part in the evening wear show. Behind her is Kennedee Smith of advised the new titleholder to Arnprior.

Horton explores fundraising, layout ideas for community centre expansion steve.newman@metroland.com

Mayor Don Eady and Coun. Bob Kingsbury say there are ways to fundraise for expanding the Horton Community Centre, but no ofďŹ cial fundraiser has yet been identiďŹ ed. Construction must be completed in 2014, or the township risks losing a $33,000 grant from the federal government. The estimated total cost was $100,000, but Dave Bennett, a former councillor and chair of the new community centre expansion sub-committee, says the total will likely be closer to $130,000. EadyĘźs on record as saying the money wonĘźt come from local taxes. “I think we can ďŹ nd ways,â€? said Eady at councilĘźs April 2 meeting, while Kingsbury said he has some ideas, too, but not ones

heĘźll share quite yet. Meanwhile, discussion continues on what the expansion will look like. Council approved the recommendation of the sub-committee, to contract engineer John MacIntyre to draft plans for the new addition for an estimated cost of $3,000. MacIntyre is an Arnprior structural engineer who did work on HortonĘźs community centre change rooms and on the expansion of the municipal headquarters. There has been extensive and recent discussion of what is speciďŹ cally needed in the expansion. Generally, the talk is that there should be more space created for the bar, the kitchen and the stage. Bennett said plans include the creation of a food-serving corridor for visitors and moving the stage back about 16 feet to a permanent location. A time-consuming period is now needed

to take down or reassemble the stage to accommodate other events in the hall. The new plans will focus on what happens on an area of 100 feet (along the one side of the building) by 16 feet, says Bennett. At the March 18 sub-committee meeting, it was mentioned that grants of up to $10,000, but more likely $5,000, are available for approved Hydro One projects. At the same meeting, Bennett asked committee members to consider donating their meeting stipend back to the project. Mayor Eady noted that if members were interested in doing this, they would claim their meeting allowance, sign the cheques back to the project. An income tax receipt would then be issued for the donation. Otherwise, unclaimed amounts would stay in the general ledger as unspent expenses. The sub-committee was scheduled to meet again this week (April 8).

are supposed to discourage nuisance birds by emitting a highfrequency sound that the human ear canĘźt detect. It would be ideal to have the estimated 50 pigeons elsewhere, since the rink isnĘźt just used for winter skating.

ItĘźs also hoped the facility will attract users for a variety of events, like weddings and parties, in the warmer months. The four transmitters, with shipping, cost less than $300. They may be installed by the end of this week.

Horton Township helping out Renfrew library users Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

Complaints by members of the public have persuaded Horton Township to provide some support for Horton users of the Renfrew Public Library.

Horton residents once had their library fees covered by the township. But that arrangement ended this year when Horton and the local library failed to reach an agreement. The Renfrew library was look-

Mayhew, who has worked in recreation and other municipal government departments since the late 1970s, formally retired in 2009. With the current contract drawing to a close this month, Mayhew says he may stay on for a while to smooth the transition for the new director. But he says, “ItĘźs time to move on and enjoy the retirement life.â€?

Noise bylaw Continued from front

Council unanimously approved the amended draft, as recommended by the planning committee. The amended bylaw will remain on the township website of www.hortontownship.ca until April 16 to allow for more feedback. The updated bylaw is much more comprehensive. The pre-

In leaving, Mayhew says he likes the resiliency of the community. “Through good times and bad, they seem to be able to get behind things. ThereĘźs a real sense of community,â€? he says, noting the example of its tremendous support for activities related to Renfrew Victoria Hospital. Looking ahead, he believes that recreation will become an increasingly popular part of Renfrew residentsĘź lifestyle, but not just in formally organized activities. He forsesees a more spontaneous move to such events as snowshoeing and cross-

vious one, said McLaren, was more limited to dealing with such activities as construction. The publicĘźs feedback has been instrumental in three areas: ďŹ reworks, property management and ampliďŹ ed sound. The original bylaw restricted the use of ďŹ reworks, except on Canada Day and Victoria Day. The new draft permits ďŹ reworks any day of the year, with a permit, up until 11 p.m., and up to 12:30 a.m. on New YearĘźs Day.

country skiing. The new skateboard and BMX park at Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre in 2012 is just one example of a new recreational option for local residents. Mayhew says of his 18-month contract, “ItĘźs been a tremendous opportunity to reconnect with people in the area and old school mates, and to work with the staff of the town.â€? As for the new director, he adds: “I think thereĘźs lots of good people out there, and I hope we attract one person whoĘźs committed to the town.â€?

In the area of property management, the draft bylaw now permits lawn mowers, snow blowers and other motorized equipment to be used until 8 p.m. The previous shut-off time was 7 p.m. The previous regulation banning ampliďŹ ed activities — such as loudspeaker systems, auctioneers, stereo systems and radios — on Sundays and holidays has been eliminated. McLaren encourages the

public to visit the website to see the changes and determine how effective their own feedback has been. Rose Curley and McLaren are co-ordinating the redrafting of the bylaw. The bylaw committee members are Jim Ferguson, David Brown, Coun. Bob Kingsbury, Coun. Jamey Larone and Mayor Eady. Enforcer of the bylaw will be municipal bylaw ofďŹ cer Jim McBain.

Coping with mental health issues facing our children and youth Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario

Everyone is invited to attend a special public event being held Our Lady of Fatima Catholic School in Renfrew focusing on mental health issues facing children and youth. The information sessions on Thursday, April 18 begin at 6:30 p.m. and feature psychologists from the Childrenʼs Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO). The evening is a collaborative event between CHEO and Renfrew County partners, in honour of Psychologist Month. “Our partnership with CHEO and the Phoenix Centre has ensured that services from these two organizations can be provided to children in our community, and allows us to maintain links where we can get valuable support,” notes Chris Ferguson, vice-president of patient care services at Renfrew Victoria Hospital. “This community education night is a great example of leveraging the expertise we have access to, and providing information on this important topic to our community.” The evening is geared to families, caregivers, service providers and teachers, and will discuss six topics with CHEOʼs specialists in the field of mental health.

Attendees can choose from one of the following hour-long sessions, from 6:45 to 7:45 p.m.: • Parenting your Tweens and Teens: Quick, do something before they repeat the mistakes you made! with Dr. Phil Ritchie and Dr. Gillian Watson; • Letʼs Talk Preventative Parenting: Mood and Anxiety 101, with Dr. Christine Beauregard; • Body Image and Self-Esteem—Practical Advice and Understanding, with Dr. Shari Mayman; • Parenting Your Young Child: Expectations and Reality! with Dr. Anne-Lise Holahan; • The Importance of Sleep: Why and What to Do! with Dr. Simone Kortstee; • Concussions and Neuropsychology: The Latest Information! with Dr. Peter Anderson. Following the special presentations, participants will be invited to reconvene for a plenary question-and-answer session with the panel of psychologists. “Mental health issues can appear in children at any age, on various levels and for various reasons,” says presenter Dr. Simone Kortstee. Our goal is to reach out to parents and caregivers in the community to provide them with

tools and information that can help them parent through these stages. “We will address some of the most common issues facing kids and families today, so that parents can go home and feel comfortable and able to begin helping their children.”

Our Lady of Fatima Catholic School is located at 228 Mason Avenue in Renfrew. Visit http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/ CHEOConnectsApril 18 to register and submit questions for the plenary session.

Horton Township remains without a public works manager, after last yearʼs dismissal of the person responsible for infrastructure and related duties. However, the township is moving closer to hiring a public works officer, after identifying a shortlist of four candidates. Council voted unanimously April 2 to have members of the public works and human resources committee interview the four. It appears the hiring process will include a half-hour presentation by each candidate on why he or she is best suited for the job and a subsequent

interview. Renfrew County human resources director Bruce Beakley informed Horton CAO Mackie McLaren that several municipalities have used this approach to hire new staff. An online behavioural assessment, for about $100, could also be performed for the recommended interviewee. TAXES IN ARREARS

Hortonʼs taxes in arrears are, and arenʼt, higher than they were a year ago. Theyʼre actually lower, based on the townshipʼs benchmark of taking the taxes in arrears as a percentage of the previous yearʼs total tax levy. Using that calculation, taxes in arrears on March 28, 2013 were 8.05 per cent of the pre-

vious yearʼs levy, compared to 8.37 per cent a year earlier. However, the township also increased its tax levy. Therefore, 8.05 per cent equals $303,189, up from the lateMarch 2012 taxes in arrears of $286,123. Taxes in arrears for March of 2012 and 2013 were more encouraging than in March 2011 when they were $382,408 (or 11.56 per cent of the previous yearʼs total tax levy). “I think weʼve peaked,” said acting treasurer Jennifer Barr of the most recent stats. “People are still coming in and making payments,” said an encouraged Coun. Bob Kingsbury. “I like the percentages,” said Mayor Don Eady. “It shows weʼre not out of line.”

Tundra swans return to the area to feed and rest

We had two sandhill cranes arrive in the field at the back of our house today. Shortly after they landed a flock of wild turkeys came out of the bush to join them. I thought they might chase the cranes with it being mating season and all. However, to our surprise they joined the cranes and walked the field together feeding along the way and without an altercation. The last time a herd of cranes arrived the local unkindness of ravens were not very happy They stayed for about an hour and a half and then disappeared as quickly as they arrived. Lila Peever phoned to say that they had sandhill cranes in the ďŹ elds on their farm for the ďŹ rst time. The Peever farm is about a mile, as the crane ďŹ&#x201A;ies, from the Hughes farm. Whether it was the same

birds at both places at different times is difďŹ cult to say. The number of these large birds in the area is on the rise and it very possible that they were not the same herd. FIRST MALE CARDINAL

Dolly Hobbs saw her ďŹ rst male cardinal at her feeder this week. She said she did not even need her bird book to know what it was. Dolly, like all of us, has been waiting for cardinals, especially the male, to arrive at her feeders or anywhere in the yard, for that matter.

Brad Dale saw two Tundra swans in the Madawaska River at Calabogie this past week. Margaret Legris also saw a pair of Tundra swans in the creek at Dacre. The birds arrive in the area to feed and rest in any open water they can ďŹ nd. The best ďŹ eld marks are the large size, white plumage and black bill. In ďŹ&#x201A;ight their short tail and legs separate them from egrets. Breeding Tundra swans were extirpated from Ontario in the nineteenth century by over hunting. Their recovery began following protective legislation in 1916, and they have since established limited breeding colonies near Hudson Bay. The birds that we see here are migrating to their summer residence from their winter range along the east coast. There is no mistaking these majestic birds when they arrive in our local lakes and rivers.

Beavers will be the focus on a special event April 22 at the Civitan Hall in Perth.

Dr. Stephen Grasmuck saw a different red-winged blackbird at their feeder a week ago. The bird had a mottled head, white and black, and showed a white bar on the wing. The bird was likely a first year male. When with other males the young birds tend to hide their red shoulder patches because the mature, dominant males will drive them away if they display. The mottled head could be a colour shift that will change with their next moult. Dominance in the flock is established by the colour and size of the red patches. The brighter the colour and the larger the patches the greater the possibility of a male being chosen by a female. Some males will have up to four mates depending on the quality of his display. Enjoy your birding. Ila and Jim Ferguson, 5313 River Road, RR 5, Renfrew, Ont., K7V 3Z8; phone 513-4322738 or email jamesh@nrtco. net

An impressive lineup of guest speakers will greet guests at the Beavers and Us workshop Monday, April 22 at the Civitan Hall in Perth. The Stewardship Councils of Lanark, Renfrew, Frontenac, Lennox & Addington and Hastings counties will co-host a productive day of revelations about Canadaʼs largest rodent. Michael Runtz will present the natural history of beavers, one of earthʼs most powerful and fascinating animals. They create diverse habitats ranging from ponds to wetlands to meadows. But beavers can be a bother, especially for those responsible for roads and watersheds. Michel Leclair has successfully managed beavers in Gatineau Park for over 30 years using specialized tools and management plans. Michel has installed more than 200 water-control devices on over 300 colonies of beavers on 360 square km. This has virtually eliminated the negative impacts of beavers on the infrastructure. His operation was featured on CBCʼs The Nature of Things in The Beaver Whisperers. Dr. Cherie Westbrook has measured the effects of beaver ponds on the groundwater over great distances. She will give us the perspective of beaver activities at the scale of our watersheds and the larger water cycle. Following is the workshop program: • The Influence of Beavers at the Watershed Scale by Cherie Westbrook, professor and researcher at University

One good turn deserves another 2. Put on the family chefʼs hat. Pick a meal and help mom or dad out in the kitchen. 3. Four-legged fun: offer to walk a neighbour or friendʼs dog. 4. Lend a hand at an after-school program or community centre. 5. Write a letter to the Canadian forces thanking them for their service. Here are some examples of good turns for adults: 1. Donate blood, clothes, food, toys, books – or give money to charity. 2. Volunteer for a community program, or at a local food bank or shelter. 3. Help an elderly neighbour with grocery shopping or a household chore. 4. Buy a homeless person a meal. 5. Make a co-workerʼs day: bring in a special snack or lunch for your colleagues. Canadians are encouraged to share their Good Turn on the Good Turn Week website by texting “Good Turn” and their good deed to 51051 or submitting it via scouts.ca/goodturn. Participants can also share their Good Turn on Twitter, the Scouts Canada Facebook page and on YouTube. Visit scouts.ca/goodturn for more information about Scouts Canadaʼa 2013 Good Turn Week.

Scouts are well-known for their motto: Be Prepared. This month the youth movement is asking people to go beyond caution to kindness. Scouts Canada is the moving force behind Good Turn Week April 13 to 21. From Saturday, April 13 to Sunday, April 21 you are asked to do your part. “If one good turn deserves another, then potentially 100,000 good turns deserve the same,” says a news release from Scouts Canada. The goal of the campaign is to spread goodwill to Canadians from coast to coast. People are encouraged to participate by performing their own good deeds – joining Scouts Canadaʼs roughly 27,000 volunteers and 74,000 youth members. “Good Turn Week follows the principles of Scouting, which teach youth to always do Good Turns for other people, but itʼs also about encouraging Canadians of all ages to reach out and do something kind for someone else,” said Kaylee Galipeau, national youth commissioner and chair of the National Youth Network for Scouts Canada. Scouts Canada offers five examples of good turns for young people, and five for adults. 1. Give a parent a night off. Volunteer to babysit for a family member or close friends.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Readers need clarity on political press releases To the editor: I read with comparative ability, our MPʼs assessment of the recent budget. No doubt her considerable and well-known lack of bias on matters of government policy and her considerable knowledge of such subject and PMO releases will go a long way to comfort those who are convinced that they think correctly already. Those of us who lack that ability and conviction, however, may be forgiven for some doubt.

We may also be forgiven for judging your own policies harshly. I fail to understand why you would print what is itself largely a press release from our current MP. I do understand that money is short and that the staff you are able to hire, as competent as they are, cannot keep up with the work that comes before them. In this case, just so you do not add to the prevalent confusion in the publicʼs mind, that it should carry either

a byline or recognition of its source. Our MPʼs lack of sincerity and competence are well known, even to those who support her party. That party has as its foundation the seven pillars of misinformation and obfuscation. You might open a column to discuss why they would do this but I find it difficult to justify helping it. Yours for an independent press, Boyd Hussey Douglas

Agrees with letter writer on aboriginal agreement To the editor: I wish to compliment Mr. Wayne Spooner of Renfrew on his letter to the editor in the March 28, 2013 edition of The Renfrew Mercury EMC regarding the current Aboriginal Agreement in Principal. I couldnʼt agree more with his facts and opinions and I praise him greatly for having the fortitude to express them. I will readily admit that, yes, I, too, am a property owner on Lake Clear. These so called public information

sessions being “put on” after the fact, are also giving our elected representatives on all three levels of government, a convenient reason for excusing themselves from the contents of this AIP. When asked about this agreement, our elected officials are all quick to deny any partaking, but are also curiously publicly mute on whether they agree or disagree with the “agreement.” I guess it is, as Mr. Spooner stated. “It is a well-known fact that most

people do not wish to express their viewpoints in public. “ “This is doubly true in this case, as you run the risk of being accused a racist or some other unflattering label.” Well said, Wayne. I think “the silent majority” should be demanding more of all our officials, both appointed and elected instead of them saying and playing “Not I.” Thank you. Barry Tiegs Eganville

Using the outhouse at night scary During the day, the outhouse held little terror for me. It was at night, when it was pitch black outside, that I dreaded the small clapboard building that sat like a sentry behind a cluster of cedar trees in our back yard. Mother hated the outhouse for an entirely different reason. After living in New York City for 18 years, she thought going outside to the bathroom was right up there with drinking tea from a saucer, or wearing a soiled apron when company came to the back door. “Uncivilized. Thatʼs all it is...just plain uncivilized,” was her constant lament. Well, we had no choice out there in the back woods of Renfrew County. Our chances of having a flush toilet like my little friend Joyce had in her brick house, were absolutely nil! We had no running water, and there was no electricity or telephone, and the very thought of having a flush toilet in the house was like dreaming the Depression wasnʼt happening! or the longest time, when I was very little, I remember our outhouse having only one hole. But eventually, after Mother complained endlessly, a new one was built by Old Herman, who was considered an outhouse authority out there in Northcote, for reasons which escaped me at the time. It was after it was built that my older sister Audrey pointed out the bevelled seat Old Herman was famous for.

Mary Cook’s Memories BY MARY COOK

Well, the bevelled seat did little to endear the outhouse to Mother, and did less for me, who still dreaded going out to it, once night had settled in. Old Herman had put a latch on both the inside and outside of the door too, which was a vast improvement over the stone on the floor that you shoved with your foot to keep the door closed once you got seated. Yes, the new outhouse was an improvement, but Mother still lamented daily about how it was, what she called, ʻan uncivilized way of lifeʼ, which she never quite got used to. My little friend Joyce also had a storebought roll of real toilet paper in her indoor bathroom. It hung on a wire holder on the wall, and even when I didnʼt have to go, I never failed to use the bathroom when I visited her house, and reef off a piece of that store bought toilet paper, just to witness the sheer luxury of the whole experience. Our toilet paper was the no-longer current issue of Eatonʼs catalogue. Father would drive a spike through the upper left corner of the thick book, and feed a piece of heavy binder-twine through the hole, and hang it on a nail on the inside near the door. An entire page was never fully torn out, and by

the time the catalogue was well used up, it was almost useless. But it was all we had. Well, except at Christmas time. This was when Mother would ask Mr. Briscoe from Briscoeʼs General Store if she could have the little orange wrappers that came around the oranges he brought in only at Christmas. They were only about six inches square, but she would iron them flat, and put them in the back-to-the-wall cupboard in a neat little pile, and they replaced the Eatonʼs catalogue in the outhouse only when we had company. And we children were well warned not to use the orange papers ... they were there for a higher clientele. A big pail of lime sat in a corner of the little black building, and we were instructed to use a dipper of it often. I confess, I found that chore had little appeal to me. During the day, I had little fear of going into the outhouse, but once it got dark at night, I was filled with dread. So as soon as the daylight started to fade, I made awfully sure I made a trip out behind the trees to the little building. But the very thought of going through the entire night without emptying my bladder was all it took to create an urgent need. This was when I would beg my sister

Audrey to come with me. Audrey thought I was old enough at five or six to go on my own. And so I would ask her to light the lantern, even thought it had yet to get absolutely dark out, and I would go through the summer kitchen and then the wood shed, a long-about way of getting there, because that way I was under cover for most of the trip. My brother Emerson, whose mission in life seemed to be to scare the living daylights out of me every chance he got, would always warn me to stay clear of the coyotes, or the big black bear he assured me would like nothing better than to haul a young girl off to the bush! And so going out to the outhouse became a constant challenge for me once it got dark at night. There was always the Johnny pot under the bed, but to use it before we retired was out of the question. It was there for emergencies, Mother said. I couldnʼt think of a more dire emergency than forcing a young terrified girl out in the dark at night to go to the privy! Like the silos that were on every farm, the tin mailboxes at the end of the lanes, the hay lofts, the pumps over the wells in the middle of the yards, and piles of manure at the back of every barn, the outdoor privy was very much a sign of the times during the thirties. Each, very much a necessity for our very survival.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Personal brand is important To the editor: As a business student I have realized how important it is to maintain a professional image through your personal brand. This can be established through experience, education or general appearance. I commend Brock University for showing me different ways to improve such and the benefits when entering the business world. I feel a number of adolescents do not understand how the advancements of technology have a major effect on their personal brand. In todayʼs society many employers search

the Internet for a candidate prior to the interview stage. Viewing posts on Facebook, twitter and blog accounts can have a huge impact on the successes of receiving employment.

Renfrew and Area Chamber of Commerce presents Wolves’ Den Renfrew and Area Chamber of Commerce

The Renfrew and Area Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with Renfrew County Community Futures Development Corporation, is pleased to announce the launch of an exciting new event; The Wolvesʼ Den – Entrepreneurship Valley-Style, May 17 at the historic OʼBrien Theatre. Using the format of the popular CBC television program, The Dragonʼs Den, the chamber has planned a local event that will create an opportunity to showcase creativity, ingenuity, innovation and entrepreneurial spirit in the County of Renfrew. The event will feature presentations of new or expanding businesses, or new product or service ideas to a panel of ʻWolvesʼ. This event will give some local budding entrepreneurs a chance to develop their idea into a meaningful and potentially lucrative business. Before getting any chance to enter the ʻDen,ʼ applicants will receive

coaching and guidance from a number of local business mentors, to help them make a successful “pitch” to the Wolves. “Anyone in the county who has ever had an idea for a new business or an innovative product or invention; this is an easy opportunity to see if it could actually fly,” says Rob Campbell, president of the Chamber of Commerce and chair of the Wolves Den project. “The worst thing that could happen is that you get some good, constructive advice from somebody who actually wants to help you,” he says. The chamber will be working with numerous local businesses who are joining to sponsor this event and provide the prizes that will be offered to the winning pitches in two age categories: 18 years and under and 19 years and older. The prize package is significant. In addition to $1,000 in cash, a stateof-the-art SmartPhone and a multifunction document system, each win-

ner will receive over $5,000 in business and professional services that can be pivotal in starting a successful business. The prize package includes legal advice, accounting services, internet site design, computer and IT services, management consulting, sales and marketing coaching, as well as printing and a local media advertising package. Presentations will be rated on categories such as creativity, innovation, ingenuity, mass appeal, identifiable market, feasible business plan, potential for success and projected sales. There will be a panel of five ʻWolvesʼ who will all be prominent business persons from Renfrew and area. These judges are successful entrepreneurs who are neutral and objective. The application deadline is April 26 and contestants will receive coaching over the three weeks before entering the Den on May 17. Participating in this event will make all contestants winners as they

Admaston-Bromley bill cleared for payment Back in February, Admaston-Bromley Mayor RayeAnne Briscoe noticed a charge of $1,265 from Claimspro Inc. as part of the roads voucher. She felt it shouldnʼt be there, and council didnʼt approve the payment at that time. “We now understand and

Iʼm glad that Annette did the research that provided us with the information of why we are expected to pay the bill,” Mayor Briscoe said March 21. “I think the terminology from the insurance company was faulty in that they were talking about an investigator, and actually it was a claims adjuster.

“That was just in terms of a accident that one of our trucks was involved in, on Pucker Street. They have now come to the end of their part of the investigation and thatʼs as far as thatʼs going to go,” the mayor said. “Our insurance policy indicates that we are expected to pay that bill. Weʼve made a motion tonight to pay it.”

A basic puppetry workshop – the art of breathing life in to an inanimate object – otherwise known as puppeteering, is coming to the Neat Café in Burnstown Sunday, April 14. The workshop will explore techniques such as breath, focus, movement and lip sync, mostly working with Muppet-style puppets. When everyone has a handle on some of the basics, there will be some fun to be had with simple improvisation and play. Maybe even a look at what is involved in performing puppets for the camera. (YouTube anyone?) Novices and puppeteers with some experience are encouraged to join – thereʼs always something to be learned. Everyone is invited to bring their own puppets if they have any. See PUPPETS, Page 12

When asked what message he would want to send to would-be entrepreneurs, Campbell replies: “No more excuses. This is the perfect opportunity to throw some light on that great idea thatʼs been kept in the dark for far too long.” He emphasizes that applicants have absolutely nothing to lose by trying; and they potentially have everything to gain from the support that is waiting for them.

Greater Madawaska Township

MARY CHARBONNEAU

Mary (Merkley) Charbonneau was born on her family farm on the top of Foley Mountain near Westport, into a large, Irish family. She was the eighth of nine children with three older sisters and five brothers. Fondly known throughout the community as the “Queen of Calabogie,” she and husband Pat resided in Calabogie where, in addition to running the local general store and butcher shop, as well as owning and operating rental cabins for tourists on Calabogie Lake, they raised five children. Pat was also appointed the local postmaster shortly after their marriage. Mary helped to establish the first girl guide troops in Calabogie, acting as a founding executive member of the First Calabogie Cub (Scout) Pack, volunteering at the schools and acting as a chaperone on school trips and events. She helped her husband Pat run the store and post office, as well as helping to deliver the mail (sometimes by snowmobile), deliver the groceries, and drive the school buses that operated from the store. As her husband was an active local and District Officer with the Calabogie Lions Club, she enjoyed accompanying him to Lions events throughout Ontario. She was on the executive of the Catholic Womenʼs League, serving in almost all executive positions, including a number of years as president. She was also very active as a volunteer with her church, serving on parish council for many years and chairing and organizing many fundraising and community events, on behalf of her church. In 1977 following the death of her husband Pat, Mary officially took over as the post mistress for the area. Mary was often the first person people would meet when they arrived in the area she became, Welcome Wagon, tour guide, information officer and first friend to

In her 70s Mary acknowledged joined the Calabogie and Area Seniors Association, holding a number of executive positions and assisting with many community events, potluck dinners and social functions. She also joined the Eastern Ontario Seniors golf circuit. Mary is the proud grandmother of eight grandchildren and great grandmother of seven, and she still, approaching 90, enjoys hosting family, holiday dinners in her home, even though her immediate family has grown to almost 30 attendees for these dinners. Mary still enjoys attending community events and rarely misses a Lions Club bingo or Santa Clause parade, having participated in over 35 parades. Her lifelong commitment to her church, her family and her community is indeed a tremendous accomplishment and her efforts are cherished by her grateful community. PAT HOLLERAN

Ken served on the Griffith and Matawatchan recreation committee for a number of years including three years as president. Ken also was appointed to the board of directors of Renfrew County Community Futures and his focus was on community visioning workshops and conducting surveys, leading to a report entitled “Vision 20-20”, a community generated

plan for economic development in Renfrew County. He was also a member of the board of directors of The Ottawa River Institute until 2010. This is a non governmental organization whose mission is to foster sustainable economic activity and healthy communities in Renfrew County. The Ottawa River Institute provides Watershed Ways articles to many county newspapers. Ken served 11 years as training captain of the new Greater Madawaska Fire Department Griffith after it was established in the early 2000s. He has also served on the board of directors of the Matawatchan Community Memorial Centre (the hall) for about 15 years between the mid ʼ80s and today. He has returned to serve as secretary of the board of directors. Ken was a member of the founding steering committee that initiated and has operated the Matawatchan Farmersʼ Market since 2007.

Focus on tourism at BIA annual meeting Tourism and ways to improve it was the theme during the Renfrew Business Improvement Area (BIA) annual general meeting at Coco JarryĘźs March 14. Addressing the board were Stephanie Hessel, tourist director and industry relations coordinator of the Ontario Highlands Tourism Organization, and Chris Hinsperger, chair of the Ottawa Valley Tourist Association and owner of Bonnechere Caves. Hessel spoke about the importance of customer service â&#x20AC;&#x153;We really want to promote our region,â&#x20AC;? Hessel said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Part of that is really encouraging our tourism businesses to provide excellent customer service experiences. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That includes everything from being tourism ambassadors, welcoming people to their businesses and in-

viting people to come back, all the way down to making sure that you are knowledgeable about the region, things there are to see and do,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We talk about how we can do that through our program called the Ovation Customer Service Designation Program.â&#x20AC;? Hinsperger said speaking to other people looking to promote the community beneďŹ ts all. â&#x20AC;&#x153;ItĘźs a wonderful opportunity to talk to likeminded people; people in business, about connecting what they do with tourism, because tourism affects us all,â&#x20AC;? Hinsperger said. He said some people might not see themselves as a tourism business, but in the Ottawa Valley, with an industry like tourism that is growing when other industries arenĘźt, whatever way you can connect to the tourism dollar is going to be a beneďŹ t to

your business. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to talk to people about that,â&#x20AC;? Hinsperger said. The Bonnechere Caves owner said 2012 was a good year, but the need to continue the upswing is paramount. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had a good year last year and thereĘźs lots of things happening at our direct marketing organization level, the Ottawa Valley Tourist Association. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are partnering with the Ontario Highlands Tourist Organization to get more programs that will make us better at customer service. â&#x20AC;&#x153;WeĘźll do packaging workshops so that people from outside the area know what weĘźre about, and will make the decision to come and visit us, and perhaps spend a few dollars.â&#x20AC;? Hinsperger said when running a business, always talk to your customers and make them feel welcome.

Fine and famous finish to season Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

Create seven pairs and 16 solos. Then mix in creative costumes, props and larger-group performances pertaining to such Hollywood icons as Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire, and Tarzan and Jane, and what do you get? Well, a varied and tastefully-presented, seasonending show by members and supporters of the Renfrew Skating Club. The crowd was smaller than last year, but several hundred spectators showed

their appreciation for a wide variety of performances in Saturday nightʼs season-ending show, Famous Duos. There was no admission charge for the two-hour show at the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre, but monetary donations were accepted at the door. In keeping with the theme of the night, the props at one end of the rink, by ice show co-ordinator Margie Griese, were colourful and highly professional, including one of Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble. See SKATING, page 27

Clockwise from top left: 1. The intermediate family of skaters is about to perform Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. Four of the eight pairings, with dad or grandfather, from left, are Tim and Elayna Meighen, David Wall and Brooke Beauchamp, Jamie and Sydney Box, and Ryan and Payton Narezny; 2. Ready with their top-hatted helmets, umbrellas and smiles for the CanSkate Stage 2 and 3 performance of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson are Ella Tettamer, left, and Emma Oatman; 3. Emily Belliveau lends a hand for Tyler ‘Tarzan’ Thompon in Tarzan and Jane; 4. This Yin &Yang piece features Renfrew Skating Club intermediates and seniors. Brooke Beauchamp is at the end of the line, next to Allie Scott; 5. Sam Galbraith provides the second of several solo performances. STEVE NEWMAN/METROLAND

Are the Toronto Blue Jays buyers or sellers? PETER CLARK Peter’s Putterings

How often does the sizzle sell the steak, but when it comes time to sit down for the main course, it quickly becomes a disappointment. Thatʼs what it was like for 48,857 Toronto Blue Jays fans in attendance at Rogers Centre opening night, and for many more across Canada watching on television. They heard about how good the

steak was going to be for weeks, even months. But two hours and 31 minutes later, it was the Cleveland Indians boasting victory. Sundayʼs 13-0 loss to Boston left the Dream Team at 2-and-4 after its first home stand. Maybe a road trip is what this team needs. Iʼm not about to bury the Blue

Jays after one week, and yes, they can certainly use Brett Lawrie and Jose Bautista back in the lineup. Still, I donʼt know if they are to team everyone has them cracked up to be.

Catalyst to perform at fundraiser April 19 Peter Clark peter.clark@metroland.com

Get our and celebrate the end of a long winter season April 19 at the Renfrew Armouries. Youʼll be supporting a good cause at the same time. Catalyst presents Spring Fling 2013 from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Some of the proceeds from the fundraising dance are going to Renfrew Victoria Hospital. Catalystʼs motto is, We Make Things Happen. They are made up of seasoned members of various well-known and successful bands in the Ottawa Valley area, band member Brent Swaine

noted. Catalyst played at a fundraising Halloween Bash at the Renfrew Legion in 2011. The band is made up of Herve Despres (guitars, keyboards, mandolin and vocals), Mike Delorme (bass and vocals), Scott Jessup (vocals and guitar), Bryan Briggs (guitar and vocals) and Brent Swaine (drums and vocals). Swaine and Despres are from the Arnprior-McNab area, Delorme lives on Goshen Road, Jessup is from Eganville and lives in Douglas, and Briggs hails from the Lanark area. Many bands have a reason behind their name, and Catalyst is no exception.

“Itʼs the meaning of the word,” Swaine said. “You canʼt have an event without a Catalyst. Your party canʼt start without a Catalyst. We make things happen.” “Weʼll play anywhere, any time,” Jessup adds. The bandʼs website says Catalyst plays a perfect mix of classic rock with some country, and you have a set-list that will keep the dance floor full and the concert goers singing along. They can play to multiple generations of guests who enjoy a variety of musical genres. Swaine said an exciting event for the band occurred on Aug. 12, 2011 when they opened for April Wine at the Navan Fair in front of about 5,000

Catalyst will be on stage at the Renfrew Armouries April 19 from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. people. They have since opened for Trooper and Platinum Blond. Tickets for the April 19 event are

available for $10 from band members and at the door. Go to catalystband.ca for more information on the band.

Renfrew Pizzeria stays alive in men’s hockey league playoffs Peter Clark peter.clark@metroland.com

Renfrew Pizzeria isnʼt about to go down without a fight. Down two games to three-time Renfrew Menʼs Hockey League champion McGrimmon Holdings, Pizzeria got big performances from Ryan Arbuthnot and Jon Rousselle to stave off elimination Thursday night. Arbuthnot set the tone for the game just 62 seconds in when he fired home his first of three consecutive goals. A shorthanded tally late in the first period, and a powerplay marker early in the second gave the pizza shop a 3-0 lead. Eric Logan collected his third goal in as many games to provide insurance for Renfrew Pizzeria in the middle session. Jon Rousselle turned away 19 shots to earn the shutout. McGrimmonʼs netminder Chris Osborne faced 29 Pizzeria drives. GAME 2

Greg Gould snapped a 1-1 deadlock late in the first period, and McGrimmonʼs gradually pulled away to a 5-1 victory in game two. Chad Mullen notched two goals to pace the McGrimmon attack. Jody Kelly shorthanded, and Mark Valli-

quette added others. Mike Newberry chipped in with three assists. As was the case in the opening game of the series, Eric Logan pulled his team into a brief 1-1 tie with Pizzeriaʼs only marker. Osborne blocked 19 shots to post the goaltending win. Game four was played Tuesday night. If necessary, a fifth game will be an 8:30 p.m. faceoff tonight (Thursday) at the MAC. MEN’S TOURNAMENT

Fourteen teams battled in a season-closing tournament last year at the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre before the ice was removed. Many of those teams should be back again this weekend to compete in either the menʼs or recreation division. There is no womenʼs division this year. McGrimmon Holdings won the open loop last year while Queenʼs Line took recreation honours. This yearʼs tournament will feature 25 games and the upstairs hall will be open. Six games are on the schedule Friday night, running from 6 to 11 p.m. Saturdayʼs action goes from 9 a.m. through to 10 p.m. that night. Semifinal and final games are slated for Sunday from 9 a.m. The last game of the tournament is a 3 p.m. start Sunday.

PETER CLARK/METROLAND

Renfrew Pizzeria goaltender Jon Rousselle keeps an eye on the play around him during game two action of the Renfrew Men’s Hockey League final against McGrimmon Holdings. McGrimmon’s won the April 2 encounter 5-1, but Rousselle came back with a shutout two nights later to help Pizzeria stay alive in the best-of-five series.

Time to swing the tennis racquets Gavan’s Hotel Owner Dispels Rumours Racket on the Courts

Spring is here and with the snow gone many are looking forward to getting out to the tennis courts. The Renfrew Tennis Club is always open to new and past members who want to get out for some recreation or be a part of our league nights. For the kids we offer skill development clinics and lessons. Our junior program has always been well received

by our community and we encourage new members to come out and join us. Garry Irving has agreed to continue his outstanding junior program and provide instruction throughout the summer on Tuesday and Thursday mornings starting on July 2 For adults we have some great singles and doubles leagues for players of all abilities. On Tuesday evenings we offer our doubles league that has been very popular in the past and Eldon Ferguson has

consented again to take charge of that league. Wednesday and Thursday evenings we see the great return of our singles league run by Robert Pelletier. Thanks to both gentlemen for their continued efforts to operate this program. We even have some informal programs that run on certain mornings during the week. Watch The Mercury for the registration information evenings and join the “racket” on the courts!!

Just two weeks ago, Nick Matechuk opened the doors to Gavan’s Hotel to host one of the largest St. Patrick’s Day parties in Pontiac.

Despite the popularity of the local watering hole, especially for celebrations pertaining to Irish heritage, there have been rumours swirling that the doors to the bar may soon be closing.

2013 Leaf and Yard Waste Curb Side Removal Schedule

According to Matechuk, as long as he’s the owner of the hotel, the doors will remain open.

The Spring leaf and yard waste removal service will be provided for three weeks commencing the week of April 15th, April 29th and May 13th.

“This is four times since September that somebody has put something on Facebook that’s not true and I don’t know how to eliminate that,” says the hotel owner.

Matchechuk, who will celebrate his 30th anniversary as the owner of the bar on May 3, has had the business up for sale for approximately five years, but he says he hasn’t considered closing. “Everyone knows the place is for sale … but we’ll never close because you never do that with a business or you’ll never sell it,” he says. Due to the number of patrons who visit the bar from Ontario, Matechuk says rumours like the one that has been circulating on Facebook could seriously hurt Gavan’s Hotel. “The next thing you know people won’t be showing up,” he says. Matechuk calls Gavan’s a “gathering centre for the Pontiac.” “If someone is going to go out with their sweetheart then they usually end up here,” says the hotel owner.

In November the ladies had taken a dog dancing workshop in Barrie. They started meeting Mondays at Crickets Canine Country Club to practice and on March 4 they made their dancing debut at RVH. The owners and their dogs danced to Achy Breaky Heart and I Wear my Sunglasses at Night.

Watershed Project has plenty in store for you Cheryl Keetch

The Bonnechere River Watershed Project has plenty in store for you this summer. Weʼre thrilled to be able to introduce you to this exciting new monthly column, brought to you by the Bonnechere River Watershed Project. Each month from now through December you can look forward to hearing whatʼs on our minds, as stewards of your Bonnechere River watershed home. First, letʼs get you up to date, weʼve been a busy organization recently! In collaboration with the Ottawa River Institute, weʼve been working on a projected entitled Nature in Your Neighbourhood. Through this project, weʼve been able to offer many presentations and events across the watershed that have promoted an appreciation of our local neighbourhoods and

all the wonderful natural features that are here for us to enjoy. We published the Bonnechere River Watershed Nature in Your Neighbourhood Guide that is available on-line on our website, or locally at libraries, municipalities and information booths. (www.bonnechereriver.ca/ nature-in-your-neighbourhood-1) Weʼve also developed a wonderful four-part video series that features local people and local topics of interest from your neighbourhood. This series starts broadcasting soon on TVCogeco. If you miss an episode, you can easily catch up by viewing them on-line (www.bonnechereriver.ca/nature-inyour-neighbourhood-1). The series features an original theme song Homescape Watershed, by local writers Cathy Morris and Jim Slavin, and performed by Jim Slavin and Elizabeth Irwin. (www.youtube.com/

watch?v=_hM__57kqXQ) Coming to towns and villages across the watershed this spring and summer is Bonnechere River: Future Tense, an innovative and fun-filled theatrical look at the past, present and future of the Bonnechere River Watershed; a collaborative project of the Bonnechere River Watershed Project and Stone Fence Theatre. The premier performance takes place on Saturday, April 27 at the Wilno Tavern at 3 p.m., following our Bonnechere River Watershed Projectʼs annual general meeting. Ten performances are scheduled for this spring and

summer, and most of the performances are by donation at the door. For those interested in a little more, plan to come out to the lunch theatre performance on May 2 at The Sands on Golden Lake, or the dinner theatre performance on Aug. 22 at the Horton Community Centre. Pick a date and plan to see great theatre, support our cause, and have a chance at winning one of dozens of adventure expeditions and restaurant gift certificate door prizes, providing yet another way to explore the Bonnechere River Watershed. Visit our website for a performance schedule located on the events page. Bonnie Chere, our frog spokesperson for the Bonnechere River Watershed will be making the rounds this spring and summer as well! Bonnie will be making guest appearances at some of the theatre performances, and for those looking for an

up close and personal Bonnie Chere experience, be sure to sign up for our puppeteering workshop on April 14. Visit our website for registration details. The arts are also enhancing our work by way of photographic imagery through the commissioned work of Dorothy Garlough, whose submission will be unveiled at the final Stone Fence Theatre dinner performance at the Horton Community Centre on Friday, Aug. 22. Also in store sometime this summer is a Septic System Awareness workshop. Keep an eye on our website for details.

“If food production was the focus of the 20th century, the 21st is about sustainability.” Those are the words of Professor Ralph Martin, appointed the Loblaw Companies Limited Chair in Sustainable Food Production at the University of Guelph in 2011. Members of the Renfrew-Lanark Christian Farmers Association (RLCFA) heard from Prof. Martin at the annual membership meeting April 2 at the Hebron Christian Reformed Church. Prof. Martin didnʼt speak in person, but addressed the Christian Farmers Federation of Ontario (CFFO) by prerecorded video. “My approach to sustainable food production is to produce enough food to meet dietary needs today, while preserving productive capacity for future generations of people and other species. “This is within the context of healthy soil, clean air and water, and regenerative energy to support resilient farming and fishing communities,” the professor said.

John Sutherland, right, was named National Farmers Union of Ontario president March 2. From left are Renfrew County NFU secretary-treasurer Lauretta Rice, NFU past-president Dave Mackay and vice-president Tim Tabbert. Tony Straathof was elected president of the Renfrew County NFU March 14. as they might, nor did the province. They could have been a lot more active. Most of it (relief) is being done through private organizations, really.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;They gave us a pittance,â&#x20AC;? said RCNFU past-president Dave Mackay. But new premier Kathleen Wynne seems to be willing to make changes, Sutherland said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She has contacted me personally. She seems to be taking one sector at a time and working it through, which is great,â&#x20AC;? he said. Sutherland also identiďŹ ed Jeff Leal as the real person in charge of rural affairs; the person whoĘźs going to have to deal with turbines and other rural issues. He said a proposal was made through his predecessor (Ann Slater) to place a moratorium on wind turbines until concerns can be addressed, such as possible health hazards. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are a lot of concerns with folks about that,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Around here, we have no turbines, but we have a lot of

Sustainability Continued from page 31

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The challenge is not so much feeding the world, but the production and distribution of food that is safe, reliable and enjoyable.,â&#x20AC;? he said. The world has more than seven billion people of which .9 billion have too little to eat, a number that has been increasing since 1990, Prof. Martin said. Conversely, 1.6 billion people eat too

solar panels,â&#x20AC;? Mackay noted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People in Ontario really donĘźt know how big agriculture is in Ontario,â&#x20AC;? Mackay said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;ItĘźs the biggest agricultural economy in Canada. It is bigger than Alberta, bigger than Saskatchewan. They donĘźt know that.â&#x20AC;? Sutherland said he also has concern regarding the â&#x20AC;&#x153;extremely importantâ&#x20AC;? local food movement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The government in Ontario is wanting to make that work, but right behind them is the federal government with CETA, the Comprehensive Economic Trade Agreement with Europe which can negate a lot of that act,â&#x20AC;? said Sutherland. He said municipalities can really be hit between the eyes because, if theyĘźre wanting to buy local and a company from outside of Ontario could come in and say we can produce it cheaper, they have to be given that contract. â&#x20AC;&#x153;ThereĘźs no ifs, ands or buts if that trade agreement goes

much, plus 40 per cent of food gets wasted. As for that 1.6 billion people, Prof. Martin said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;two-thirds of health-care costs can now be attributed to chronic diseases associated with unhealthy eating.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a lot to learn in the next century,â&#x20AC;? Martin added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the next decade, we are going to be learning a lot.â&#x20AC;? CFFO ďŹ eld services manager Paul Bootsma and CFFO president Lorne Small attended the RLCFA meeting in Renfrew. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As you are aware, agriculture is a bit

different here than in different parts of Ontario, so itĘźs important that we do come to all corners of the province,â&#x20AC;? Small said. Small congratulated RLCFA board member Gerald Vander Ploeg, who was honoured at the recent annual convention by members from across Ontario for his long-time years of service. The RLCFA includes president Gerry Rook, vice president James Morton, treasurer Gerald Vander Ploeg, secretary Maynard Van Der Galien and directors Ken Clemmer and Wayne Senior.

New National Farmers Union of Ontario (NFUO) president John Sutherland was introduced at the Renfrew County NFU annual general meeting at the Barr Line Community Centre March 13. The resident of Erin, northeast of Guelph, is, in a roundabout way, the NFUOĘźs ďŹ rst president, as the word co-ordinator was used in the past. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like to be called president because the members wanted that,â&#x20AC;? he said. Sutherland said the Renfrew County NFU group is an example to others in the province. Lauretta Rice, who is secretary of the Renfrew County NFU, noted the local group has 148 members in Renfrew County. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a very active area,â&#x20AC;? said Rice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some people think the farmersĘź union is gone because we are not accredited, but we are still stronger than ever.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Accreditation is the main thing these days, deďŹ nitely. It is something we have to achieve,â&#x20AC;? Sutherland said of the NFUO. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are not going to disappear. No way,â&#x20AC;? Sutherland stressed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thanks to these people, the serious drought situation was brought to the attention of both governmentsâ&#x20AC;? in mid-July, Sutherland said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The locals really made the effort and put it on the provincial agenda and on the federal agenda. Unfortunately, the feds certainly didnĘźt come through

through,â&#x20AC;? Sutherland said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If they bring cheaper food from somewhere else and put us out of a job, we still have to be fed, put us on welfare or whatever,â&#x20AC;? NFU vice-president Tim Tabbert added. Sutherland said that, meanwhile, the soil is changing over time and the farming industry is learning that the chemicals used for spraying ďŹ elds are actually staying in the soil and have an effect on soil organisms. More chemicals are being used on the crops, he added. And no one is sure what problems chemicals will cause in the future. If a bacteria, virus, etc. were to enter, a crop could be gone overnight, Sutherland added. There is no restriction to the movement of funguses and bacteria, etc. Another important effort, Sutherland stressed, is to stop the commercial introduction of GM (genetically modiďŹ ed) alfalfa. The NFU says GM alfalfa threatens the markets for all alfalfa growers, and the future of family farming and organic food and farming in Canada. GM contamination is inevitable because alfalfa is a perennial crop pollinated by bees, Mackay noted. On April 9 a demonstration day regarding the GM alfalfa issue will be held outside MPsĘź ofďŹ ces throughout Ontario, and one outside the Canadian Food Inspection Agency in Ottawa is planned. In Renfrew County, they are going to have a mailin, phone-in lobby all day at MP Cheryl GallantĘźs ofďŹ ce.

May 1, students attending this trip will leave the school and bus to Montreal to tour these beautiful, beautiful buildings and celebrate the Eucharist. In other news, the administration technology at SJHS is being brought up to date! An automated attendance program was installed to let parents know about attendance and upcoming school events. Although this program makes life a little easier, I know weʼll all miss the personal calls from our lovely secretaries! Almost every year, a number of dedicated staff members, students and community volunteers work hard for months to bring a classic or wellknown performance to the stage at SJHS. This year, SJHS will be performing The Sound of Music. This performance will be held at 7 p.m on May 14, 16, 17 and 18. Doors are open to everyone in the community, and tickets can be purchased at Aikenheadʼs Drugstore, Breenʼs Insurance and St. Josephʼs High School for $10 each. This annual musical is always a hit, so make sure to get your tickets and enjoy the show!

BECAUSE YOUR BUSINESS IS OUR BUSINESS

Today marks a big milestone for many Grade 10 students across the province – the writing of the dreaded Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test. This test is a graduation requirement, so to attain a diploma this test must be passed. To ease some of this pressure, preparation for this test has been happening in classrooms at SJHS all year! Throughout the past few weeks, teachers have been assigning work that gives an idea of the testʼs expectations. Good luck to all of the students writing this test! Last Friday morning, members of the SJHS student council attended the RCI Relay For Life Kick Off Assembly. We wish RCI the very best as they fundraise for the Canadian Cancer Society. Thank you to everyone who came out to support the Hoops for Heart basketball tournament! We saw some great uniforms and great sportsmanship throughout the day. Over $1,200 was raised for the Heart and Stroke Foundation! This year, the Pastoral team has organized a school trip to the St. Josephʼs Oratory and the Notre Dame Basilica in Montreal. On

sausage for only $5. Contestants for the Miss Teen Ontario East Pageant, plus staff members Mrs. Foohey, Mrs. Barber and Mr. Ferguson cooked and served the delightful meal. Relay for Life teams began the registration process at this time and many individuals bought luminaries in memory of loved ones who are ďŹ ghting or who have lost their battle with cancer. Finally, again this year, everyone attended a very emotional Relay for Life assembly. The stories shared were heart-breaking and hopeful at the same time. We were reminded once again how fortunate we are to be able to call Paige Dillabough a Raider because of the tremendous courage she has shown since being diagnosed with cancer in 2002. Educational assistant Edythe Elmore also shared her personal story by reading excerpts of letters she asked her husband and children to write about how her cancer impacted them. Both Dane Brumm and Mr. Wright shared their pain and worry caused by the cancer each of their mothers have faced. Finally, Holly OĘźNeill shared the heart-breaking story of her 14-year-old cousin who lost her life after a hard-fought battle this year. All of these stories remind us of why we need to come together as a community and do everything we can to support cancer research and cancer patients so that this disease will, some day, be a distant, terrible memory.

No wonder the weeks feel like they ďŹ&#x201A;y by! This week alone, we Raiders had three major events that brought together our entire school community. In an effort to make learning more engaging, teachers Mrs. Noack and Mr. Rose combined their skills and offered an afterschool literacy course with a new appeal. Over the last two months, students met after school and practised literacy skills through the lens of transportation. For part of each class, students wrote and read about fast cars and the automobile industry, and for the other portion of the class, students worked on designing and building model CO2 cars. As many as 34 students were involved in the course and thoroughly enjoyed this innovative approach to teaching. The culminating activity was, not surprisingly, a race to see who had designed the fastest car. Though competition was tight, two ďŹ nalists emerged: Nick Hisko and Alex Herbert. In the ďŹ nal nail-biting race, NickĘźs car shot ahead and he was the grand champion. Not to be outdone, the teachers were invited to design their own cars. Though there was some question about the designer and manufacturer of Mr. BuffamĘźs car, his car beat both Mrs. Noack and Mr. RoseĘźs models. On Friday, staff, students and the public were invited to the Relay for Life kickoff breakfast. More than 400 people enjoyed pancakes and

Tourism networking event April 23 at Calabogie Peaks Lauren McIllfaterick OVTA community co-ordinator

Excitement is building for the 2013 Ottawa Valley Tourism Conference. The conference, an annual event hosted by the Ottawa Valley Tourist Association (OVTA), is being held April 23 at the beautiful Calabogie Peaks Resort, and promises to be a value packed event with learning and networking opportunities designed to help those in the tourism industry succeed. This yearʼs theme is ʻSmall Fish, Big Sea: Making the Most of Your Tourism Marketingʼ. The eventʼs keynote speaker will be Chris Hughes of BC Hughes Tourism Consulting. Chris has a wealth of tourism marketing knowledge, including 10 years at the helm of Bruce County Tourism. Chrisʼs presentation, Becoming Famous, will inspire conference participants with innovative ideas and tourism marketing best practices.

Reasons to get a library card Bettijane O’Neill Renfrew Public Library

Whatʼs the value of the Library? Libraries help make municipalities stronger. As our economy becomes more fragile, libraries make critical contributions with their services to job-seekers

In Chrisʼs words “All tourism destinations strive for it, want it, need it. They hope consumers recognize them instantly for what they are truly famous for. It takes guts, determination and buy-in, to earn fame and recognition in the tourism world. Business owners want it too. To be recognized as the best, tastiest, strangest or biggest always helps drive people in the door and the bottom line.” Join Chris on his journey to uncover the hidden secrets of what can make you famous, destination style. The day will also feature a presentation by Trish Manning of Manning Consulting Group Inc. and internationally published, award winning photographer Rob Stimpson of Rob Stimpson Photography. Trish and Rob will continue the conference theme of Making the Most of your Tourism Marketing by presenting the importance of having good content (copy and images). They

and small businesses and a literate citizenry. Libraries, unlike the schools, serve the needs of the majority of citizens, the taxpayers. It has been said that libraries provide education disguised as leisure. They are not a frill. Libraries are not free. However, your library could be the best bargain in town. Total library operating expenditures per capita in Ren-

frew were approximately $52. Without a library card, this is rather an individual waste and the library resources youʼve already paid for are being used by somebody else! Why buy books that you will never reread or DVDs that you will never watch again? 10 MORE REASONS TO GET A LIBRARY CARD

1. Bestsellers you can reserve with your card number

in person, over the phone, or on your computer 2. Quality books and free programs for preschoolers and school age children. Literacy experts are now saying that a child should be exposed to 1000 books before they start kindergarten. The foundation for school success begins at a very early age. 3. Copying and faxing service for a small fee. 4. Materials from all over Canada we can get for you

Easter art at Fatima Students at Our Lady of Fatima Catholic School spent the Wednesday before Easter painting Ukrainian eggs under the supervision of Susan O’Neil who has teaching the art for more than 20 years. The egg painting has become a tradition at the Renfrew school. From left are, Bianca Leith, Connor Owl, Karley Pepper, Abigail Price and Maggie Lycett.

Innovative healthy practices at OLF Jeannie Armstrong, Principal Our Lady of Fatima School

Our Lady of Fatima Catholic School, in partnership with the Renfrew County and District Health Unit and the Champlain Cardiovascular Disease Prevention Network, has worked to provide healthy nutritional environments and quality physical education programs and resources for its students over the last number of years. As the board representative for the Champlain Healthy Schools Project, I certainly recognize the importance of creating positive role modeling and opportunities for students to develop healthy habits, which will last a lifetime! The goal of the Champlain 2020 project, which all Directors of Eastern Ontario School Boards support, is to create healthier school communities through the creation of healthy school environments and students by the year 2020. Our Lady of Fatima is certainly showing its commitment to Champlain 2020, through the creation of a comprehensive healthy snack program, distributed to almost 300 students twice daily; a healthy lunch program which exceeds PPM 150 standards; and a Canadian Association of Physical and Health Education (CAPHERD) Diamond award for quality physical education programs and innovative activities. Despite Our Lady of Fatima being recognized provincially as a leader in health educa-

tion, I was still surprised when I received a phone call from the Senior Manager of Public Relations from the Heart Institute, Vince Lamontagne in early January. Lamontagne explained that our school was named by Ottawa health leaders as “the” school to visit and he asked if Our Lady of Fatima would be featured on the Heart Institute Telethon to share its vision of healthy schools and student leadership with others in Eastern Ontario. Lamontagne also mentioned that Ottawa Valley recording artist and former host of the CBC show, On the Road Again, Wayne Rostad, would come to the school to conduct an interview with Director, Michele Arbour and myself. Of course, staff and students were thrilled with the possibility of showcasing our school and innovative programs to others as well as having the opportunity to meet Rostad in person! Before accepting this invitation, school staff wanted to ensure our goals and objectives for the session were clear. Our goal is to help other schools discover ways to make students enthusiastic about physical activity. If students have fun and enjoy a variety of activities and healthy foods, then research proves they are more likely to be active and eat a balanced and healthier diet through their adult years. Even as adults, we tend to become “stuck” in a certain pattern of activity. If we help

38 The Renfrew Mercury EMC - Thursday, April 11, 2013

students understand that at any age we can become more physically active and healthier, then we are sending the right message. We are not pretending to be experts rather, we try to engage students to make healthier choices! On Wednesday, Feb. 13, Rogers television crew, representatives from the Heart Institute telethon (Christina Bova, Heart Institute Foundation and Events Manager; Vince Lamontagne, Vice-President of Public Relations), Laurie Dojeiji-Champlain Cardiovascular Disease Prevention Network and Wayne Rostad, host of the 2013 Ottawa Heart Institute Telethon arrived at Our Lady of Fatima School. Students were videotaped dancing to Zumba, led by Renfrew Zumba instructors, Peter and Shirley Boldt while Wayne conducted interviews in the foreground. The event proved to have a lasting impact on staff and students alike. When leaving, Mr. Lamontagne indicated that Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Schoolʼs appearance on the telethon may be an on-going event. Lamontagne stated, “Thanks again for today, Jeannie. We are hoping to collaborate with your school again in the future! You truly have something amazing happening here....”. As the proud principal of Our Lady of Fatimaʼs dedicated staff and parents, along with our amazing students, I couldnʼt agree more!

Plenty of choices with Plentiful Pantry Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

Sweet, sour, salty, spicy. Take your choice, thereĘźs a good chance itĘźs at Plentiful Pantry, one of the newest businesses in town. After opening their doors last fall, Debbie Kiss and husband Lorenzo Comparelli say theyĘźre pleased with the response to their bulkbin business on RenfrewĘźs main street. Perhaps theyĘźre part of a trend, too, as three of the newest businesses in town â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Plentiful Pantry, KarrasĘź Way Restaurant and Wheatless Wonders â&#x20AC;&#x201D; are all about food. Kiss says the idea for the business emerged after a bulk-bin business at the north end of town closed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;ItĘźs been good so far,â&#x20AC;? said Kiss. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of people are glad weĘźre here.â&#x20AC;? Customer Lois Cooper is one of the locals pleased with the arrival of Plentiful Pantry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like their service,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;TheyĘźre very conscientious, they have excellent products, theyĘźre fresh, and thereĘźs lots of choices.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;IĘźm a bulk-food store shopper, and we didnĘźt have one in town. So thatĘźs where the idea came from,â&#x20AC;? says Comparelli, whose own business background is in sales and inventory control. Her business history includes 18 years as a hairdresser who did several Cuts for Cancer fundraisers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I started to talk to people, and they were telling me they had to drive to Kanata or Pembroke for their bulk-food needs,â&#x20AC;? says Kiss, the mother of youngsters ages 4, 5 and 14. â&#x20AC;&#x153;ItĘźs cheaper. ItĘźs cost-effective, especially

Plentiful Pantry owner Debbie Kiss serves customer Lois Cooper. for young families. And it leaves a smaller thumbprint on the environment due to the lack of packaging.â&#x20AC;? The owners say theyĘźre also trying to provide products that customers want, but that Plentiful Pantry doesnĘźt yet carry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;ThatĘźs the nice thing about not being a chain, because chains will tell you what to stock,â&#x20AC;? says Kiss. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Prices are better than in the city, partly because we have no franchise fees to deal with.â&#x20AC;? Most Plentiful Pantry products are not packaged. As the businessĘźs name suggests, customers use a scoop to collect their preferred amount of most products. But there are still about two dozen packaged items, including the very popular DragonsĘź Den breakfast cereal additives, Holy Crap and Skinny B. Plentiful Pantry is also offering pre-ordered

The store, located between The Picket Fence and Royal Bank, at 188 Raglan St., features more than 150 bins. Products, to name a few, are loose and bagged teas, caffeinated and decaffeinated coffees, spices and such baked goods as oat ďŹ&#x201A;our and soya ďŹ&#x201A;our, toasted corn, pretzels, bits and bites, red skinned peanuts and dried fruit mix. They also carry gluten-free products and a wide

assortment of sweets, among them rocket rolls, licorice babies and mixed sour berries. In the near future, Plentiful Pantry also plans to add bulk bins of bird seed and dog biscuits. Plentiful Pantry is open seven days a week. Its schedule is 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday; until 6 p.m. Thursday and Friday; 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday; with Sundays ďŹ&#x201A;exibly set for 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Hours are expected to expand for the summer.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Sargeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Sadaka returning for book tour party April 20 Some 30 years ago, Steve Sadaka, a.k.a. Sarge, called Renfrew his home. For a number of years he lived in the apartment above what was MasonĘźs Realty. His former hideaway is now ďŹ&#x201A;anked by the golden Phoenix. He recently exclaimed to

me, â&#x20AC;&#x153;How cool would it be to live there now!â&#x20AC;? In this apartment, Sarge penned many writings and threw the ĘťoddĘź party.

1938: Renfrew Bottling advances APRIL 11, 1913

REAL ESTATE PURCHASES: Several purchases from Mr. M.J. OʼBrien, effected through Mr. J.M. George, have been that of the residence on the corner of Cross and German streets by Mr. Felix Lidtke; by John Leckie on Patrick Street, and by Mr W.C. Cooper of the brick residence on Main street next to Mr. J.K. Rochester. Mr. George has also sold, for Leo Bascore, the house and lot on Bank Street to Joe Boicey. NEW BRIDGE IN ADMASTON: Quizzing Provincial Road Inspector Moss as to what was doing in his particular department at present, The Mercury learned it is likely the government will look after building the new bridge in Admaston, to which the township recently voted $3,000 or $4,000; that a small washout at the Dacre bridge has been repaired, that about $500 has been or is to be expected on the Griffith bridge; and that some work is also to be done to the across-the-river structure at Rockingham. APRIL 14 , 1938

From the Old Files what was the bottling works and the Mack store. The contract was awarded to Mr. M.J. Sulpher. Additional store room and more office space were mainly wanted, and these are now in abundance. More machinery will be installed. The offices, in the form of a suite, adjoin the street and are the last word in modernity and convenience. The Misses Bridge have come under many congratulations upon their enterprise.

MERCHANTS PLAN DOWNTOWN CARNIVAL: The Renfrew Merchant Association is considering a carnival-type midway at their sidewalk sale. The merchants wrote a letter to council asking if it would be possible to have Hwy. 60, Raglan Street rerouted to enable three or four Conklin Shows kiddie rides to be set up. As well, the club is hoping that some of the service clubs will be interested in setting up booths to create a carnival atmosphere on the main street. Alternative days for the sale will be July 21-22. Councillor John Hillmer suggested the town should offer Railway Street, which carries less traffic, and would have room at the Low Square for any overflow. However, clerk Bob Howse explained it was the understanding that the merchants wanted the main street since they wanted to draw interest to the downtown area and create a mall atmosphere. CONVENTION TIME: Town council passed requests for several personnel to go to conventions. Greg Colterman will attend the fire chiefsʼ conference in Ottawa May 14-17. T.A. Wark will attend a police chiefsʼ meeting in Cornwall April 19. Clerk Bob Howse and his secretary will attend a seminar on records management at Pembroke May 12. Any councillors who wish to attend the annual meeting of the Organization of Small Urban Municipalities May 4 to 6 in Stratford can do so.

Holland-Canada: A look back at 60 years of farming Blaine Marchand

p.m. in the Old Town Hall, 498 Micksburg Rd., Osceola. The Rook farm in the Netherlands was a small one, 15 acres, of which five were owned and 10 were rented. Although Mr. Rookʼs father had seven Holstein cows, it was not enough to make a living,

so he drove a horse and wagon, bringing milk to the local dairy. During the Second World War, under the occupation of the Germans, the family of nine ate potatoes three times a day. “I always had it in me to farm but wanted to follow my eldest brother

and neighbours in our area who had gone to Canada,” said Mr. Rook in a recent interview. “I kept bugging my parents about leaving. Finally my mother agreed but decided we would go as a family. We left Rotterdam on January 17th, 1954.” A number of

Dutch families had settled in Renfrew County and Cor, his elder brother, had secured a job at Haley Industries. Although they were strangers in a strange land, at church, they had the comfort of people who could speak Dutch. Mr. Rook also followed his

brother to Haley Industries but his heart was not in it. In 1957, he and his wife, Gertie, who had followed him to Canada where they married, rented a farm at Ferguslea and later one in Stafford Township. In 1969, they bought two farms on the Stoqua Road

BARNET AUCTION SALE AT ASHDOD HAD A LARGE ATTENDANCE: The auction sale of livestock, implements, etc. on the well-known Barnet farm near Ashdod station on Monday was attended by about 300 people, some of whom were present from a considerable distance. Mr. D.W. Budd of Renfrew officiated as auctioneer while Mr. E.J. Stewart, of this place, acted as clerk and cashier. A large number of animals and articles exchanged hands, some of the buyers paying by note, others by cash, the latter receiving a three per cent discount. A Calabogie restaurateur, Mr. George D. Charbonneau, sold sandwiches, soft drinks, etc., much to the convenience of the crowd. Mr. J.G. Barnet of Calabogie, present owner of the 550-acre farm, was not present, owing to illness. RENFREW BOTTLING WORKS ARE ADVANCING: In October last, The Mercury made mention of a program of expansion inaugurated by the Renfrew Bottling Works, to meet the needs of a growing business. The changes are now about complete. They involved the purchase of what has long known as the Costello building, adjoining some structural work to join, under the roof,

“They cannot perform The Odyssey in full. That would take 14 hours. They do, however, weave their parts in such a way that listeners will come to the end of the evening knowing they have been touched by

Homerʼs Odyssey is being presented by 2 women productions Saturday, April 20 at 7:30 p.m. at Neat Coffee Shop in Burnstown.. “Everythingʼs there – all the power of high endeavour. The roaring seas on the journey to the island; the memories of the terrible war; the Cyclops looming in the cave entrance; the men turned into pigs by the enchantress Circe; the battle of homecoming; the tender reunion with a loyal wife,” says a news release on the upcoming performance. “For almost 20 years, four Ottawa storytellers – Jan Andrews, Gail Anglin, Jennifer Cayley and Ellis Lynn Duschenes – have been telling parts of Homerʼs Odyssey. They have come back to the epic repeatedly, knowing that it will always be one of the greatest stories ever told. It is the last show in the 20122013 season of fine storytelling for adults presented by 2 women productions (2wp. ca). For them, the performance is always an adventure. “What I love about The Odys-

I would like to convey my heartfelt appreciation to the staff of Bonnechere Manor for their loving care of my husband, Jack Tenhoeve. He was treated with complete respect and dignity. I could not have hand picked better people to care for him. For that, I am forever grateful. I also wish to thank Dr. Dipaolo for his compassionate care of Jack. I appreciate his honesty and guidance throughout this journey. I am grateful to beyond obedience for their kind support in a trying time. I knew I could count on them to the very best for my â&#x20AC;&#x153;familyâ&#x20AC;? and appreciate their generosity. Simply, thank you to all my friends for their outpouring of support & kindness. I cannot describe the strength I have drawn from all of you. You all knew the right thing to do which aided my peace of mind.

A very special thank you to Dr. Robson, nurses and staff at the Arnprior Hospital while I was a patient. Also to Dr. Burwash and staff on the 4th floor of the Ottawa Heart Institute for their excellent care during my stay there. A big thank you to all those who sent cards, visited and brought my meals.

Only God knows how many times, I’ve broken down and cried, When I look back upon our lives, One of the things that makes me glad, Is that you chose me to share with you, The precious years we had.

The moment that you died, Our hearts split in two, The one side filled with memories, The other died with you. We often lay awake at night, When the world is fast asleep, And take a walk down memory lane With tears upon our cheeks. Remembering you is easy, We do it every day. But missing you is a heartache, That never goes away. We hold you tightly, Within our hearts, And there you will remain, Life has gone on without you, But it will never be the same. For those who still have their dads Treat him with tender care. You will never know the emptiness As when you turn and he is not there.

Forever in our hearts, Audrey, Cassandra and Paul
