Spring brings Trillium to DACA April showers bring May flowers, and this spring brought a very special trillium to the Dacre and Area Community Association (DACA) Centre – a $20,000 trillium, to be precise. Guy Jamieson of the Ontario Trillium Foundation and local dignitaries met at the DACA Centre on Flat Road Saturday afternoon to help the DACA committee and volunteers celebrate a $20,000 grant over one year to renovate the washrooms at the centre. From left are Linda Ryan, Micheline Scharff, Betty Frost, Teresa Connaughan, Greater Madawaska Councillor Bruno Kierczak, Trillium representative Guy Jamieson, Bob Wilson, DACA president Dave Scharff, Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant, Lonnie Coulterman, Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MPP John Yakabuski constituent assistant Susan Fynn and Mike Quilty.

Ringrose eyes return to council, but not as mayor or reeve Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

News - As promised, Bill Ringrose is not running for re-election as Renfrew mayor. Now serving his first term as mayor, the 68year-old has decided to seek a fifth term on council, or fourth term as a councillor. He filed his nomination papers April 8, shortly after returning from a spring holiday in Florida. There are now seven candidates for five positions of councillor. Ringrose had told The Renfrew Mercury he

would not run for reeve, if long-time Reeve Audrey Green sought re-election. If she does, there will be a repeat of the 2010 race between Green and former councillor Kate Windle. “I had already expressed interest in running as reeve, but I now realize that’s not a possibility,� said Ringrose. “I have enough respect for Audrey that I wouldn’t run against her, and I understand she expects to run.� “Of course, I’m going to run,� said Green. “If I wasn’t enjoying it, I would not be running.�

Early in this term, Ringrose said he was going to be a one-term mayor. Later he said he’d run for reeve or councillor, or retire from municipal politics. If elected councillor in October, he said he’ll be “quite comfortable leaving the leadership of council to others.� Only one councillor, Clint McWhirter, is seeking re-election as councillor. Coun. Gail Cole and Andrew Evans say they are not running in the October municipal election. Two other councillors, Tom Anderson and Jim Miller, are in the mayoral race along with Callum Scott.

News - The Dacre and Area Community Association (DACA) was the grateful recipient of an Ontario Trillium Foundation grant Saturday afternoon at the popular community centre. The money will be used to upgrade washrooms at the centre. Trillium representative Guy Jamieson made the announcement, which was backed up all three levels of government. Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant congratulation the group on receiving the provincial funds and encouraged the group to seek federal assistance as well, as the centre evolves to play an even more important role as an emergency centre. Constituent assistant Susan Fynn attended on behalf of Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MPP John Yakabuski, and Councillor Bruno Kierczak spoke on behalf of Greater Madwaska Council. Kierczak said how proud he was of the DACA group and the community’s open and welcoming spirit. He said the centre has an important role to play, not only as a centre for social activity, but as a disaster relief centre for the area. “I’m so proud of you,� he said, extending congratulations and praise to all of the DACA committee who worked so hard to prepare the Trillium request. Jamieson was especially pleased to bring financial assistance to the community. “It is indeed an honour to be here at this wonderful facility today on behalf of the Ontario Trillium Foundation, to offer our sincere congratulations to the Dacre and Area Community Centre, which all of us locals know as the

DACA Centre,� said Jamieson. “Our mission is to build healthy and vibrant communities throughout Ontario, and for over 30 years we’ve supported local groups as they work hard to enhance the quality of life in their own communities. “And because we know there are many different ways this can be doe, it’s no surprise that today we celebrate the hard work of those who have in the past as well as in the present worked so hard to build and then successfully operate this facility. Jamieson said the DACA group went to the Ontario Trillium Foundation with a vision “to make this well-loved and well-used hall fully accessible by renovating your washrooms in order to make them more user-friendly, especially when the demand to use the washrooms is at its peak. Yes, we have heard about those Irish celebrations up there!� Jamieson exclaimed. “And since you are the only community center in this region, we know this project will have a significant impact. The $20,000 grant you were awarded will allow you to enhance the accessibility of the social and recreational activities you host on an ongoing basis. “May you continue to play ball, and hold those horse draws, Bonnie Nolan’s breakfasts, the Warren’s mystery dinners, your bingos, St. Paddy’s celebrations, and any other celebrations you Irishmen can think up to help keep the place active and pay the bills. “OTF strongly supports initiatives that remove barriers to social participation, and your grant does just that. Congratulations on your new grant.� Jamieson presented a congratulatory plaque to David Scharff and all members of the community centre.

News - Michelle Eady is so sickened by the amount of local litter that she has started an anti-litter Earth Day campaign. The Springtown resident and outdoor enthusiast started the campaign on Instagram and Twitter to encourage more people to pick up litter that’s left behind. The contest continues until midnight on Earth Day (April 22), with Eady using a random draw to determine the four winners from those who send photos of themselves picking

up litter. “Basically, I’m sick of the amount of garbage I see on Calabogie Road and at different fishing spots,� says Eady, an early childhood educator at Our Lady of Fatima Catholic School. “I really love the environment and outdoors, but it just sickens me to see how many people don’t have respect for the environment.� With the help of sponsors, Eady has prizes in place.

Very prestigious ranking for Deslaurier Custom Cabinets Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Companies must have $10 million in annual revenue to be considered for Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Best Managed Companies list. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not an issue for Renfrew-based Deslaurier Custom Cabinets. Not only is the company on track for sales of $22 million for 2013-14, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s now a member of the 2013 list of the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 50 best-managed companies. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best about the honour is recognition that the Renfrew firm is still doing an accomplished job 35 years after opening, and just five years after a New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day fire destroyed the businessâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hall Avenue headquarters. So says co-owner Jim Deslaurier, the director of business development for the leading Ottawa-area cabinetry manufacturer and retailer. In its recent announcement, Deloitte noted Deslaurier Custom Cabinets, with a staff of 150 in its Renfrew manufacturing plant and Ottawa showroom, surpassed hundreds of applicants to make the prestigious list. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s definitely the result of working together with the management team and allowing them to share their expertise and thoughts,â&#x20AC;? said Deslaurier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Through strategic planning and working together, the business has worked great for us. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always let our managers run their own departments and let them do what they do best.â&#x20AC;? The success has also come despite highly-competitive pricing and a fairly flat housing market over the last five years. DCC has also done some work in United States, like

a 380-unit, high-rise building in Boston, last year, that may bring other opportunities south of the border. But its focus remains on excelling in the Canadian market with a portfolio of diversified client sizes. The company has about 80 builder accounts in the National Capital area and 30 dealers across Ontario. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re honoured to receive this distinction,â&#x20AC;? says DCC co-owner and president Denis Staples. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It reinforces what we believe in and have worked toward delivering exceptional products that never compromise on quality. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Deslaurier has survived economic slowdowns and two devastating fires, but we were able to rebuild thanks to the support of our employees, our clients and our suppliers. This designation serves to recognize the excellence of our entire team.â&#x20AC;? Since its establishment in 1993, Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Best Managed Companies has been the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leading business awards program, with recognition of excellence in Canadian-owned and -managed companies with revenues over $10 million. Deloitte says the Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Best Managed Companies designation symbolizes Canadian corporate success: companies that are focused on their core vision, creating stakeholder value and excelling in the global economy. Succeeding in an uncertain economy hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always been easy. Competition, explained Staples, has been fierce in recent years, and the strong Canadian dollar has hampered exports and forced local producers to make do with the domestic market. As a result, Deslaurier Custom Cabinets has had

FINNIGANâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S

to find creative ways to stay ahead. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re always under pressure to offer more, at lower prices,â&#x20AC;? said Staples. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But we never cut corners by using sub-par materials. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re continuously updating the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s catalogue, which now has 48,000 designs that workers can program into their saws to enhance the precision of cuts made. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want our customers to have options so we can work within their budgets while maintaining Deslaurierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quality standards.â&#x20AC;? Fortunately, business has improved in recent years due to continued strong housing starts, sparked by exceptionally low interest rates. The improvements have been particularly evident in the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capital, Deslaurierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s core market. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Activity here has been fairly constant lately,â&#x20AC;? said Staples. The companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also pleased with a more recent increase in business closer to Renfrew. See BEST MANAGED, page 10

News - Renfrew County Warden Peter Emon paid tribute to the Canadian military, including members of Garrison Petawawa, during the March 26 session of county council. Soldiers returned home March 17 at the end of Canada’s major military operations in Afghanistan. Referencing a Garrison Petawawa news release, Emon said this was the end of Canada’s largest military deployment ever. The deployment began for Canada in 2001 and involved more than 40,000 Canadian soldiers, sailors, airmen and airwomen, as more than 25 per cent of them served more than one tour. Emon noted that since the end of Canada’s combat operations in Afghanistan in 2011, Canada had contributed to the NATO Training Mission–Afghanistan by assisting with training, mentoring and development of the Afghan National Security Forces. The Canadian flag was brought down in Kabul during a March 12, 2014 ceremony that took place under heavy guard. “The Afghanistan war cost the lives of 158 (Canadian) soldiers, one diplomat, one journalist and two civilian contractors.” said Emon. “We welcome our troops home and thank them for their work and sacrifices during this mission and all the other military mission deployments. We wish to also acknowledge the sacrifice of the families of our soldiers.”

News - Monthly Renfrew County council meetings open with a prayer and the singing of the national anthem. That was the case again, on March 26, with the continued help of on-screen lyrics and a new musical recording that left something to be desired.

WECKWORTH’S SUGGESTION

Given the county’s abundance of musical talent, county councillor Harold Weckworth of

North Algona Wilberforce later suggested a different musical group be brought in each month to sing the anthem along with members of county council. Warden Emon said his suggestion would be considered. Whatever approach is taken, Emon said the county will return to the monthly projection of a photo, on a screen, from each municipality during the playing of the anthem.

CARRIER OF THE MONTH!

News - Watson & Associates Ltd. is back to prepare Renfrew’s newest set of development charges. The same company did the town’s development-charges study in 2009 in preparation for 2010. Council then reduced the recommended fees to maintain Renfrew’s competitiveness with nearby communities. However, development charges (DCs) are now higher in those communities, while development and works director Mike Asselin has said an increase in Renfrew’s fees is expected. Provincial regulations require municipalities to amend their development charges every five years. The charges are collected when building permit fees are paid. DCs are used to help offset the cost of infrastructure and equipment needs created by new development. The 2014 capital budget included $35,000 to prepare a developmentcharges study. Watson & Associates, which is based out of Mississauga, is doing the study for $21,000 plus HST. Watson’s work will include a July public meeting prior to expected passage of the development-charges schedule in August. Renfrew’s current schedule of development charges expires Jan. 25, 2015. But 2014 passage will allow the town to adopt a new fee schedule before then.

The singing effort by staff and councillors was off-key and more unco-ordinated than usual. “It didn’t go as well as it could have,” admitted Warden Peter Emon.

Fraud prevention top priority for police, financial services Ontario Provincial Police

News - As part of Fraud Prevention Month, the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) believes greater awareness can help prevent consumers from becoming victims of fraud through identity theft and payment cards. Typical identity theft cases include situations where government documents â&#x20AC;&#x201C; such as driversâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; licences, health cards, Social Insurance Number (S.I.N.) cards and birth certificates â&#x20AC;&#x201C; have been unlawfully obtained or forged. Criminals can use your stolen identity documents to: â&#x20AC;˘ access your computer and email accounts; â&#x20AC;˘ access your bank accounts, open new bank accounts or transfer bank balances; â&#x20AC;˘ apply for loans, credit cards and other goods and services; â&#x20AC;˘ make purchases; â&#x20AC;˘ hide their criminal activities; and â&#x20AC;˘ obtain passports or receive government benefits. According to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (CAFC), in 2013 there were 6,275 complaints of identity theft in Canada. Of those complaints, 4,898 victims were identified and their combined financial losses exceeded $11 million. The consequences of having your identity compromised

can have lasting effects on your life including potential employers, individual finances and credit ratings, and your dealings with government and other agencies. The OPP Organized Crime Enforcement Bureau - Identity Crimes Unit also makes use of stronger legislative tools with which to charge criminals for possessing the personal information of others and prevent it from being used for fraud or theft. If you or someone you know has been a victim of identity or payment card fraud, contact your local police service or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-2228477 (TIPS). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Criminals are able to convert your stolen personal information into documents and other tools to further support other crimes,â&#x20AC;? says deputy commissioner Scott Tod, of OPP Investigations and Organized Crime Command. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Managing your personal information wisely and cautiously can help prevent identity theft.â&#x20AC;? OPP Anti-Rackets Branch Det.-Insp. Paul Beesley adds: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Knowledge is power. Consumers can take some basic steps to better protect themselves from becoming a victim, such as never giving out personal information over the phone or over the Internet if you are not sure with whom

you are dealing, or by only carrying the identification documents that you need.â&#x20AC;?

The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) has concluded its distracted driving campaign and is reminding drivers that, as of March 18, new legislation kicks in that will have officers issuing much heftier fines to those caught using a hand-held device or watching an entertainment device while driving. During the March 8 to 14 campaign, officers throughout the province were busy raising awareness among motorists that using a hand-held device and engaging in other forms of distraction while driving is a dangerous behaviour that, for three years in a row (from 2011-2013), has taken the lives of more innocent people than impaired driving (on OPP

patrolled roads). As of mid-March, 11 people had died in 2014 in distracteddriving-related collisions on OPP patrolled roads and, according to some of the OPPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Facebook followers, the public recognizes how serious a threat this driving behaviour poses to road users. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I see many people driving and using their cell phones and not paying attention (to) traffic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They should be kept off of roads,â&#x20AC;? said one follower. The OPP is reminding drivers that effective March 18, distracted driving fines increase from $155 to $280 (this includes the $225 fine plus a $50 victim fine surcharge and $5 court cost). The OPP supports this and any other laws that help put an

â&#x20AC;˘ Mass-marketing fraud (MMF) in Canada and particularly Ontario continues to grow at an alarming pace. A 2008 study by the Environics Research Group concluded that two-thirds of Canadians have been targeted by criminal mass marketers. â&#x20AC;˘ The Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (CAFC) reports that, in 2013, more than 31,000 Canadians reported that they had fallen prey to organized criminal fraudsters for a total reported loss of over $63-million. â&#x20AC;˘ Almost one-third of complaints to the CAFC come from Ontarians who suffered a reported loss of $31 million to criminal mass-marketers in 2013. â&#x20AC;˘ The CAFC estimates that mass-marketing fraud reporting rates are less than five per cent of actual victims. Losses to Ontarians from mass marketing fraud in 2013 are estimated to have exceeded $600 million, or close to $2 million per day. Many of these real dollar losses occurred to individual, ordinary Ontarians who may lose all or a significant portion of their lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s savings.

end to distracted driving. While OPP officers remain committed to doing their part to help eliminate this dangerous behaviour, they know that drivers themselves have to take action to put a stop to it. This latest campaign brings the total number of provincewide OPP distracted-driving charges up to 4,000 in 2014. The OPP would like to thank all drivers, passengers and others who support their efforts to make Ontario roads free of distracted driving. Whether it be through responsible driving, speaking up to a distracted driver as a passenger or encouraging family and friends to put down their phone and leave it alone while driving, the OPP appreciates these positive actions, which can go a long way.

Unions say abandoned, at-home elderly have borne brunt of hospital cuts OSLA, CUPE, OCHU

ing with the aftermath of their grandmother’s deteriorating health following her repeatedly being discharged from hospital while acutely ill. These personal stories are validated by the health ministry’s own data showing that one in six Ontario patients are readmitted to hospital within 30 days of being discharged. There are over 10,000 and 35,000, mostly frail and elderly people, on wait-lists for home care and a bed in a nursing home, respectively. National data shows that Ontario patients receive 6.1 hours less nursing care than patients in other provinces. “With the fewest hospital beds to population of any province, Ontario cannot continue to cut beds. These cuts restrict access and the rationing that follows impacts the elderly foremost,” says Hurley. A key finding of the report is that since moving to this outpatient community care model, most therapy services, including speech language pathology services, have seen decreases in referral rates through Ontario’s

Community Care Access Centres (CCACs), which leads to individuals not receiving the timely care they need. In 2012-2013 speech language pathology services amounted to just .7 per cent of all home care visits through CCACs. Due to hospital funding cuts, waiting periods to access some, in-hospital services, range from two to 10 months. Many callers to the hotline reported that for patients who had suffered a severe stroke, have Parkinson’s disease, or any kind of swallowing issue, chances are good that getting the appropriate care in a timely fashion was extremely difficult. Pushed Out of Hospital, Abandoned at Home posits solutions that encourage the provincial government to make alternative policy choices. These include the following: • Chronic and alternative level of care beds must be reopened to give the frail and elderly the in-hospital restorative, convalescent care and therapies they require. • Funds must be reinvested in hospitals so that critical speech-

Community - Ontario Power Generation (OPG) is warning people to stay clear of hydroelectric dams and generating stations this Easter holiday weekend. “With the arrival of spring and the warming temperatures, ice near a dam or hydroelectric generating station can be thinner than ice in other locations because of changing water flows beneath it,” says Mike Martelli, OPG’s senior vice-president of Hydro-thermal operations. “The areas around our generating stations and dams are clearly marked. Please obey all warning signs, and respect fences and barriers. ‘Stay Clear! Stay Safe!’ is our message.” The waterways near Ontario Power Generation (OPG) facilities are not safe places for recreation at any time of the year. The arrival of spring means warmer weather and rapidly changing conditions on lakes and rivers. Please, exercise caution when near waterways and stay off the ice as it is unstable at this time of year. You can learn more about safety near dams and hydroelectric generating stations by visiting http://www. opg.com/about/safety/water-safety/ Pages/water-safety.aspx

Community - The province’s near 20-year fixation with cuts to Ontario hospitals, including the closure of 19,000 beds and decreased access to in hospital restorative convalescent care, is resulting in human tragedies on a grand scale, with many patients, foremost the elderly, pushed out hospitals while acutely ill with little access to care at home, a report released in Renfrew recently has found. The report, Pushed Out of Hospital, Abandoned at Home: After Twenty Years of Budget Cuts, Ontario’s Health System is Failing Patients, found it is the elderly and those in smaller communities who are being hurt most by hospital downsizing. Making the situation worse is the under-resourcing of care at home under an “outpatient” community care model that the report shows, is failing miserably. Pushed Out of Hospital, Abandoned at Home chronicles the personal stories of hundreds of patients on a 1-800 patient hotline, set up for over a year

by the Ontario Association of Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists (OSLA) and the Ontario Council of Hospital Unions (OCHU) the hospital division of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE). “Many of the patient experiences are heart-breaking,” says OCHU president Michael Hurley. “It is the frail, ill, mostly elderly patients who have borne the brunt of the cuts to the hospital system,” he said. “They have been pushed out of hospital while acutely ill and have been abandoned at home. Some have died as a result. “Elderly spouses and adult children have exhausted themselves trying to provide basic care. This report exposes the discrimination against the elderly in Ontario’s health care system,” says Hurley. The majority of hotline calls came from Ontarians whose loved ones were prematurely discharged from hospital including a mother desperate for care at her local hospital for her extremely ill son diagnosed with lymphoma and a family cop-

Eastern bluebirds arrive three weeks later

TREE SWALLOWS

Terry Cunningham saw tree swallows at his nest boxes this week. This species has declined drastically in numbers during

JIM FERGUSON Scene from the Hawkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eye the past few years. We can help by providing nest boxes for them. Tree swallows and bluebirds will engage in some serious squabbles over who will nest in which boxes. If this occurs, place out more boxes. A box on each side of the same post will often settle the matter. BIRD BOXES

There are standard dimensions for a popular nest box that has been known to provide a home for bluebirds, nuthatches, downy woodpeckers, tree swallows, great-crested flycatchers, chickadees and house finches. The inside measurements are 4â&#x20AC;? x 4â&#x20AC;? (10 cm x 10 cm), hole size 1½ inches (4 cm) distance from the middle of the hole to the bottom of the box 7 inches (18 cm). If the box is too shallow the raccoons can reach in and destroy the nest. All other dimensions are of the builderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s choice. Be aware that bluebirds may raise as many as four broods

Lifestyle - Cathy Campbell saw male bluebirds investigating nest sites April 6. Kevin Hughes saw them April 8 and Marlene Freitag saw them April 11. Male and female bluebirds are not bonded to each other but to a nest site. They may spend the winter in the central states of the United States many kilometres apart but when they return north to nest they meet at the nest site where they raised a family the year before. Prior to leaving in the fall they return to the nest, inspect it and may place nesting material inside. Why they do this is not fully understood but it has been suggested that it helps young and mates to bond to the nest site. If either of the birds is killed during migration or while on their winter range the remaining bird arrives at the nest site and chooses a new mate, often one that has been attracted by the quality of the site. A pair of kestrels were also investigating nest boxes made especially for them on the Campbell property.

It’s time to scrap the Fair Elections Act

Opinion - The most serious flaw among the many, many flaws in the Fair Elections Act is the author. The entire exercise should be scrapped in part because of him. Pierre Poilievre is unfit to draw up such a bill, let alone maintain his position as democratic reform minister. Just follow his own logic for the reasons. Poilievre’s unprecedented attack on Chief Electoral Officer Marc Mayrand’s integrity, impartiality, and motives – saying the referee shouldn’t be wearing a team jersey – was added upon when he claimed Mayrand is trying to pad his power and budget. “He wants more power, a bigger budget and less accountability,” Poilievre told the Senate legal and constitutional affairs committee on April 8. It’s a baseless claim, of course. It even runs contrary to Mayrand’s past actions (always a good indicator of future actions). Instead, Poilievre’s bill reveals his party wants more power, a bigger war chest, and less accountability: more power to win elections by preventing non-Conservatives voters to cast their ballot; bigger contributions to larger parties by creating campaign financing loopholes; less accountability from a weakened Elections Canada that uncovered the in-and-out scandal and other dirty tricks. Mayrand aside, Poilievre also levelled baseless attacks against provincial chief electoral officers, scholars, public intellectuals, columnists, experts from various countries around the world, and protesters armed with petitions at 25 MP offices in Canada, including his own.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Perhaps Preston Manning, who recently criticized the bill, is next. The point is that elections experts are attacked en masse and without cause by Poilievre. It’s not a polite difference of opinion he has with critics, but a questioning of motives. Presumably he is an expert on elections, considering he is the democratic reform minister and spent some time thinking about his bill before drafting it. Therefore, that is reason enough to disqualify him from penning it. Elections experts, according to his reasoning, ought to leave the Fair Elections Act up to someone with less specialized knowledge and, say, more common sense. But that seems like two wrongs. No need to dismiss elections expert Poilievre because he does it. No, Poilievre is unfit to write the bill or hold the democratic reform position for two more reasons: his wobbly powers of reasoning, and his party. The Conservative party’s illegal in-and-out scheme to exceed its spending limit in the 2006 election; the illegal over-spending by former cabinet minister Peter Penashue; the LETTER TO THE EDITOR campaign money issues by one-time parliamentary secretary Dean Del Mastro; and the robocalls affair that misdirected primarily non-Conservative voters to the wrong polling stations in To the editor: to buy them a lavish new headquarters that the the 2011 election.

Government spying out of control

Asking the fox to guard the henhouse To the editor: Opinion - An open letter to Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant. The so-called Fair Elections Act is, in my opinion, an outright attack on Canadian democracy. One of the more egregious provisions, that of allowing the governing party to nominate the deputy returning officers and poll supervisors, is essentially asking the fox to guard the henhouse. The provisions for limiting the public outreach aspects of the chief electoral officer are merely a device for reducing voter participation.

Mayor clarifies incident A heart-felt thank-you to hospice volunteers at Calabogie ball field LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

To the editor: Opinion - Since opening in January 2008, Hospice Renfrew has provided care, comfort, and compassion to residents and their families with the committed support of many volunteers. Volunteers at Hospice Renfrew engage in many essential tasks that help to keep the hospice running and allow the hospice to achieve our mission: • bakers turn out wonderful “goodies” in the kitchen, spreading the smell of comfort and home throughout the hospice, • gardeners plant, weed, and water, encouraging colourful flowers

and grasses to greet all who come our way, • receptionists receive family and friends, answer the phone, and generally provide a welcoming face to those who arrive at our door, • support volunteers provide a compassionate presence to residents, their family and friends, providing care and comfort to all in need, • our grief and bereavement team extend our care and comfort to the next of kin beyond the time that residents are with us, • other volunteers decorate for the changing seasons, provide office support, and generally do “whatever is needed” to run a home-like residence

such as Hospice Renfrew, • a legion of other volunteers and friends help Hospice Renfrew participate in the community life of Renfrew County and help us raise much needed funds, thereby allowing Hospice Renfrew to meet the needs of our residents and their families. To all the volunteers of Hospice Renfrew, the staff of Hospice Renfrew wants to send out a heart-felt thank-you. Without our volunteers, the hospice would not be the caring refuge that it is for so many people. Diane Litchfield Co-ordinator of Volunteer Resources

It was agreed to by the owner of the automobile that he and his acquaintances would restore the ball field to a condition satisfactory to me. I will be consulting others to determine what the level of repair will need to be. I have been forwarded a number of social media screen shots indicating some comments as to getting away with the event. That is not the case as we have information about the young men, including where they are employed, and should the agreement not be adhered to there are remedies to pursue. The influence or lure of social media is quite intoxicating for some and I am sure intemperate remarks are made or posted which in the light of the next day are regretted and removed. We are not intending to allow incidents similar to this to occur and compensation or restoration not be vigorously pursued. Hopefully this information will be of assistance to the community.

AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM ONTARIO POWER GENERATION. R0012559748

To the editor: Opinion - It was with distress that I read of a 1.7 megawatt hydro-electric dam to be built on the Bonnechere River in Horton Township just upstream from where it meets the Ottawa River, also called First Chute. It is here where I have made my first kayak outing for several years now, to watch the water pound over the large boulders and cascade down the chute into a strong current, which I ride back down the Bonnechere to watch the pickerel swim towards the shallow silt area to lay their eggs, to see the osprey nest in the tall dead

To the editor: Opinion - I would like to clarify some of the issues around an incident which occurred on April 11 in Calabogie, resulting in damage occurring to our community ball field. I was called anonymously by a resident of Calabogie and was informed a truck or vehicles were tearing up the ball field. I arrived at the ball field and noted a truck stuck to the frame in the middle of the outfield and a series of marks and holes on sections of the remainder of the field. I attempted to engage the driver in conversation he didn’t feel the need to speak to me and I left the area to call the OPP. When I returned a second vehicle which had been out on the field left via the other entrance and I wasn’t able to accurately identify who it was, although I have some ideas and will speak to his parents about it. The OPP arrived, the three young men, non-residents of our community, came forward and identified themselves to the two officers. During the ensuing discussions the tone was one of co-operation as they all had careers or a desire to not be charged.

Flat Road Rehabilitation

Douglas farm holds customer appreciation and auction Jennifer Doelman Barclay Dick & Son Farm Supply

Community - Innovation, stewardship and community were the main themes for Barclay Dick & Son Farm Supply’s Customer Appreciation Week April 1 to 5. This annual event drew many Upper Ottawa Valley farmers from both sides of the river for delicious beef on a bun at noon and to hear the guest speakers that visited through the week. The agricultural topics focused on best management strategies for bee health, reducing herbicide resistance in weeds, cover crops and other soil health strategies, AutoSteer & Variable Rate technologies and crop marketing. New this year is the installation of a 10-ton Vertical Screw fertilizer blender. “We have expanded our blending capacity to meet the growing demand of the local farmers,” says Kevin Dick, one of the company owners, “The stakes are higher now than ever, farmers have to cover more acres in less time so we are investing in this system to help make our customers more profitable.” This system is complimentary to the tower blender that has been in operation on the farm since 1991 and triples the daily blending capacity of Barclay Dick & Son Farm Supply. The Barclay Dick & Son Farm Supply Charity 4-H Auction raised $1,500. Proceeds go directly to the Renfrew County 4-H Association. Preston Cull was the auctioneer for

the charity auction and for the consignment auction that followed. “Investing in 4-H is always a good idea because it’s investing in the future,” Cull said. Many thanks to the local businesses that helped donate items for the auction. Bee health is a priority for farmers because they are needed to help pollinate our crops. The best management practices for the new planter fluency agent was showcased. This new product is designed to help reduce potential bee exposure to the dust from seed protection products used on corn and soybeans. New herbicide strategies to help improve yields and to reduce the risk of creation and spread resistant weed species was discussed by many industry representatives, including Paul Sullivan of PT Sullivan Consulting. Eric Kaiser from the Napanee area shared his experiences with no-till residue management and cover crops. He is hailed as one of the more profitable and environmentally minded farmers in Ontario. North Gower Grains had Dwight Foster & Geoff Guy speaking about their projections for crop prices in the coming months and years, and also spoke of the newer services in flexible pricing they provide their customers. Green Lea Ag Centre led a discussion on new technologies in equipment, including AutoSteer and Variable Rate technologies to help farmers become more precise and efficient.

council members have expressed concerns about possible changes to hours at the Douglas post office. The WIâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campaign asks supporters to express their opinion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Please contact your MP, your MLA, the federal minister responsible for Canada Post, Lisa Raitt, and Canada Post Corporation at 1-800-267-1177 and insist that they stop the steady erosion of our Canadian postal service,â&#x20AC;? says a press release from the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s institute.

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; McNab-Braeside council and the Burnstown Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Institute are among those concerned with Canada Postâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plans to reduce hours at the Burnstown and other rural post offices. Canada Post wants to close the office on Saturdays and reduce hours during the week. Officials say it would be more beneficial to take the Saturday hours and move them to during the week so the post office can stay open longer hours and later into the day to generate more revenue. Although letter mail has declined, parcel service has increased dramatically in Burnstown, say officials. In 1998, there were 134 general delivery and rural route modes. Today, there are a total of 267 in both modes, including houses, apartments, farms and 66 freestanding and in-home businesses. A local school, radio station and a leather business are among the customers. The post office is now open Monday to Thursday from 9 a.m. to 4:45 Contact Us Today For A FREE No Obligation Quote! p.m., Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Proud to Represent Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon.

Dawson drops Rattlesnake Cage Lifestyle - Steve Dawson is releasing his new CD Rattlesnake Cage at his upcoming show in Burnstown at Neat Cafe on Thursday, April 24. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The new solo, totally instrumental album is entirely self-penned and is his first album release since moving to â&#x20AC;&#x153;music cityâ&#x20AC;? Nashville, Tenn. about seven months ago where he has now made his home. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back in Canada to tour this acoustic project that sees him playing 6 string, 12 string and Weissenborn guitars in his inimitable fingerpicking style,â&#x20AC;? says public relations spokeswoman Linda Bull. After Burnstown, Dawson performs in Montreal, St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Halifax, London, Huntsville, Toronto, Innisfil and Picton. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anyone who can hear Dawson play and not be moved is made of stone,â&#x20AC;? said Penguin Eggs Magazine. A news release on Dawsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new release said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best to just put up a mi-

Steve Dawson crophone in a room, sit down and play your guitarâ&#x20AC;Ś This is the record that Steve Dawsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s growing number of fans have been waiting for. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rattlesnake Cage finally gives them the opportunity to hear Steve interact with his guitar in a way that has never been captured on record before. Until now, hearing the sweet melodies and deep soul of Steve playing solo guitar has been a treat reserved for live audiences in intimate settings,â&#x20AC;? the release says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These new simple and unadorned recordings hearken back to the American Primitive

sound that John Fahey and other artists such as Peter Lang and Leo Kottke recorded on Faheyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s iconic Takoma record label in the sixties â&#x20AC;&#x201C; instrumental music informed by the deep traditions of blues, ragtime, jazz and even Hawaiian music, but taking those influences in unexpected directions.â&#x20AC;? After success both as a performer and producer in his native Canada (including seven Juno Awards as an artist and producer), Dawson relocated to Nashville to begin a new chapter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The fluidity of Steveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s playing makes what he does sound so effortless that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to forget that it takes years of disciplined practice to achieve such an apparent simplicity,â&#x20AC;? the news release notes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are lots of guitar virtuosos out there who can reel off a dizzying array of notes at lightning speed, and Dawson can certainly do that, but at a certain point, great players like him realize that sometimes less is more.â&#x20AC;?

Valley Heritage Radiothon ready to roll April 20 Kick-off breakfast April 19 Valley Heritage Radio

Community - For 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, Valley Heritage Radio is on the air. For seven of those days â&#x20AC;&#x201C; beginning April 20 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; there is more than great classic music flowing across the airwaves of the communityowned, non-profit station. There is also a clear message for members of the community that their help is needed and appreciated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Community memberships and annual donations are crucial to keep Valley Heritage Radio on the air,â&#x20AC;? said station manager Jason Marshall. The fundraising membership drive begins Easter Sunday (April 20) and continues for a week. Volunteers and on-air personalities will be in communities across the Valley Monday through Friday, as part of the annual â&#x20AC;&#x153;Out & Aboutâ&#x20AC;? visits. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be bringing with them local musicians, to make it more of a party atmosphere. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We love getting out to all areas in the Valley, and we know some people want to support Heritage 987, but canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t physically make it out to the station,â&#x20AC;? said Marshall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re happy to come to them.â&#x20AC;? Also during Radiothon Week, there will be three nights of live music at the station (3009 Burnstown Rd.). April 21 will be a live country show featuring Ball & Chain, and

Lorne Daley and the Ricochet Riders. April 23 will be a night of live bluegrass gospel music with Concession 23 and Maple Hill. Friday, April 25 will be Fiddle Night with Dennis Harrington bringing in a stage full of some of the Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top fiddlers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The live shows at the station are free and we encourage everyone to come out and catch the fever of the Radiotohon live and in person,â&#x20AC;? said Marshall. The fundraising drive wraps up Sunday, April 27 with the annual Valley Round-Up Dance at the Renfrew Armouries. There will be five hours of live music guaranteed to keep everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s toes tapping, and a light lunch. Featured talent includes the Douglas Connection, Unwound, and Mike Fahey & Classic Country Revue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; s perfect way to wrap up an intense week of fundraising,â&#x20AC;? said Marshall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What better way to enjoy a spring Sunday afternoon than with great friends and great music.â&#x20AC;? Woven into the week of great music is a pledge drive where members of the community are encouraged to purchase or renew memberships to the station, or make donations, said Marshall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are a non-profit station with more than a hundred volunteers and a handful of paid staff who work tirelessly to keep the station running day in and day out,â&#x20AC;? said Marshall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our community membership sits at more than 1,800 members and with-

out those supporters and their generosity, we wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be able to stay on the air.â&#x20AC;? Each day throughout the Radiothon, listeners will hear the usual blend of music and the regular shows, but there will be daily messages encouraging the listeners to support the station in any way they can, said Marshall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even with all the volunteer support, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still costly to run a radio station,â&#x20AC;? said Marshall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why this radiothon is so important. We want to be here for our listeners for a long time.â&#x20AC;? KICKOFF BREAKFAST

Valley Heritage Radio will host a pancake and sausage breakfast at the Renfrew Armouries on Saturday, April 19 from 8 a.m. to noon. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s free to get in, and breakfast is $7 a plate, with all money going back to the station. Dennis Harrington & Heritage Country will be live on stage from 9 to noon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a morning of good music, good food and good friends,â&#x20AC;? said Marshall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve all been cooped up for a long winter, so what a great way to come out of hibernation.â&#x20AC;?

Cooking for Life author visits library in Douglas Jane Wouda Admaston-Bromley Public Library

Community - Stephanie Bergsma, who is launching her latest cookbook, Cooking for Life: Special Occasions, provided a cooking demonstration at Admaston-Bromley Public Library April 9. Her recipes are not only vegetarian, but they are also free of gluten, wheat, dairy, lactose, egg and cholesterol. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s left is a purely plant-based diet that tastes delicious, as the tastetesting and clear-off plates attested to. The theme of the eveningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meal was, A Summer Barbecue, so Stephanie served up black bean burgers, quinoa tabbouleh, homemade pickles and dairy-free cheesecakes. The library has several copies of her books to lend out, but they are also available to purchase at Wheatless Wonders in Renfrew. She will soon be featured on CTVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Morning Live.

Councillor Jim Miller showed his support for community seniors by participating in the event March 21. “We are excited about having Jim Miller participate in our March for Meals Community Champions week,” said executive director Judy Ewart. March for Meals is a North American campaign during the month of March, initiated by the Meals On Wheels Association of America, which seeks to raise awareness of senior hunger and to encourage action on the part of the local community. Senior Nutrition Programs across Canada and the United States, promote March for Meals in their local communities through public events, partnerships with local businesses, volunteer recruitment and fundraising initiatives. Renfrew Seniors’ Home Support works co-operatively with Carefor and Renfrew Victoria Hospital to provide nutritious frozen meals that are easy to prepare. The meals prepared by Apetito and are designed to provide 40 per cent daily nutritional requirements, are low-fat, and low-sodium. With over 25 meal selections, there is a meal to please everyone. This service will benefit people who require help with meals as they recover from illness or injury; are unable to prepare nutritious meals for themselves due to frailty, disability, or inexperience; or have special dietary needs.

EDUCATION

Connected to your community

RCI student journeys to help others Taylor Virgin Raider Review

March 8, 2014. While there, Doering did various jobs in order to assist the community. She helped build a house, paint an orphanage, and hand out school supplies to students. “It was life changing! Canadians are known for being kind but you never know true kindness until you’ve been there,” explained Doering. “People were familyorientated there. Everyone supported each other. “While I was building a house, I never saw a homeless person and it is because whole families live together. “They would never allow anyone to live on the streets.” What impacted her most was the orphanage. “The orphanage really moved me. There were so many kids and each one had their own story

and their own trauma that brought them there. It was very sad,” said Doering. Visiting schools and handing out supplies to students who needed them was also an experience Doering will never forget. “I’ve never seen a child so excited to get pencils and vitamins. They’d come up to me and I broke down in tears because I took getting school supplies for granted.” The memories Doering made in San José Villanueva are ones that she will never forget. I would definitely tell anyone with the chance to go on a trip like this to take it,” said Doering. The small town of San José Villanueva has a small population of a little less than 10,000 people. It is located in southwestern El Salvador, in the Department of La Libertad.

JESUS LOVES ME THIS I KNOW, FOR THE BIBLE TELLS ME SO

R0012642628

I was fortunate enough to be able to talk to some girls my own age while in the D.R. When I asked them what their favourite pastime was, they all agreed on one answer – studying. That shocked me because, if you asked my parents they would say that all I seem to do is complain about my workload. These girls, however, have a different outlook towards studying; they know that doing well in school is the only way to ensure that they can support themselves. We met children who will have a difficult time escaping poverty, because they cannot attend school. Because I am lucky enough to live in Canada, I know that if I do not have an education, I will not starve. However, I now realize that becoming educated and using my education to help others is how I can make a positive change in the world. That possibility, the potential to do something that will change someone’s life for the better, makes all of the long nights of studying completely worthwhile.

R0012542710

R0012440738

Lifestyle - Student life is the only life I have ever known, and I’m told that these years are the best of my life. I am constantly challenged and I do enjoy learning as much as I can. However, at times, the stresses and fast pace associated with education is discouraging. I can say that I am speaking from experience because, as a Grade 11 student, I have acquired almost 13 years of schooling and I have many years to go. The biggest challenge I face as a student is time management. Many of us teenagers hold part time jobs, participate in extracurricular activities such as sports and the performing arts, and manage a busy social life as well. Where is the room for homework and studying? Sometimes I’ll find myself procrastinating, then staying up late, and finally producing a below average assignment. Sometimes I’ll be ahead of schedule and be able to hand in a piece that I am proud of; but, it is a constant battle between my desire to surf the Internet and my desire to achieve good marks. When I travelled to the Dominican Republic back in February, I learned a valuable lesson. No matter how much we put down our education system here, no matter how devalued an education has become, no matter how much we take school for granted, we are lucky because we can go to school.

In Loving Memory of Our Mom & Nana

In Memory of:

To my darling husband Bill, who would have celebrated his 90th birthday April 17th. I miss you terribly every day and today even more… Love always Esther and the kids xox

Heather Vanderwal April 29, 2013 God looked around His garden And found an empty place. He then looked down upon the earth, And saw your tired face. He put his arms around you And lifted you to rest. God’s garden must be beautiful, He always takes the best. He saw the road was getting rough And the hills were hard to climb, So He closed your weary eyelids And whispered “Peace be Thine” It broke our hearts to lose you But you didn’t go alone, For part of us went with you The day God called you home.

The most loving Husband, Father & Grandpa You can shed tears that he is gone or you can smile because he has lived. Your heart can be empty because you can’t see him or you can be full of the love you shared. You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday. You can remember him and only that he’s gone or you can cherish his memory and let us live on. You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back or you can do what he would want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on. Forever loved and missed Linda Deena, Aaron & Paxton Corey, Krystle & Burke

We thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new. We thought of you yesterday and days before that too. We think of you in silence as we often speak your name. All we have are our memories and your picture in a frame. Your memory is our keepsake with which we’ll never part. God has you in His keeping, but we have you in our hearts. CLR517467

Heaven’s gate swung gently open, The Master called softly, “Come”, And you, dear one, took the Master’s hand, And your work on earth was done. We’ll never cease to miss you, And shed many silent tears, Because we cannot share with you Our hopes, our joys, our fears. But one day, in God’s garden, When the Master calls us to come. You’ll be at the gates with open arms And say to us, “Welcome Home!”

No words we write can ever say How much we’ve missed you every day over the past 2 years, As time goes by, the loneliness grows; How we miss you, nobody knows! We think of you in silence, We often speak your name, But all we have are memories And photos in a frame. No one knows our sorrow, No one sees us weep, But the love we have for you Is in our heart to keep. We have never stopped loving you I’m sure we never will; Deep inside our heart, You are with us still. We love you so, Dad, Grandpa, And we always will. CLR516461

The quiet house, the empty chair, The sad faces on the kids, When they realize Nanny is not there. We talk about you all the time, Limitless memories gush, Some make us laugh, others bring a tear Or make the whole room hush. Nothing can cure our heartache, Since we said good-bye last spring. But all the love you gave us, Has helped soothe grief’s sharp sting. In our hearts and forever loved, Love Gary, Nicole, Christina, Jennifer and families CLR517268

The Renfrew Mercury EMC - Thursday, April 17, 2014 27


Legacy gift to CHEO generates $4.6 million As CHEO gets ready to celebrate its 40th anniversary this year, it is natural to reflect back to the early days of the hospital. It was a dream that was built on sheer will and determination by a community that was committed to providing the best health care for its children and youth. During the late 1960’s and early 70’s, physicians, elected officials, parents and the community at large joined forces to establish a special and distinct hospital to serve the children and youth of eastern Ontario and western Quebec. This group raised $4 million from the community which was a formidable sum for the times.

When Mr. Cochrane died in 1985 the CHEO Foundation received $540,000 from his estate. The Foundation established the Weldon Cochrane Endowment Fund with his gift as directed in his Will. Much has happened and changed at CHEO in the nearly 30 years since Mr. Cochrane’s death, and in that time his legacy gift has generated $4.6 million in interest which has benefited generations of patients and families at CHEO. In 25 years from now based on a conservative interest rate of 6% The Cochrane Endowment Fund will be valued at $19,742,605; in 50 years it will be $84,732,710 and in 100 years it will have reached $1,560,789,584.

THE IMPACT OF MR. COCHRANE’S GENEROUS GIFT IS PROBABLY BEYOND WHAT HE COULD HAVE EVEN IMAGINED WHEN HE MADE IT OVER 30 YEARS AGO. HIS LEGACY LIVES ON AND CONTINUES TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF YOUNG PATIENTS AT CHEO TODAY, AND FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS. In 1980, when the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) was only just 11 years old, Weldon Cochrane, an Ottawa chartered accountant and partner with the accounting firm of Coopers and Lybrand (now PriceWaterhouseCoopers) was also the Treasurer on the CHEO Foundation Board. Mr. Cochrane had an appreciation for the importance of leaving a legacy and understood how to make an impact. With that in mind, he made a gift in his Will to CHEO leaving the residual of his estate with instructions for it to be endowed; meaning that the capital would be preserved in perpetuity and the annual interest would be used to fund the important work at CHEO. He was predeceased by his wife, Adrienne Cochrane and his only child, Delma Grace Cochrane.

With these funds CHEO will be able to continue to purchase state of the art equipment, fund lifesaving research while continuing to provide the best in pediatric care for the children and youth of our community. His legacy lives on at CHEO every day through the children and families that benefit from his generous and forward thinking.

As CHEO marks this major milestone, we look back and honor those in our community who made our local children’s hospital a reality and donors like Mr. Cochrane who made children a priority in their lives. Donors like him have helped to ensure that CHEO will be here forever. Why not honour what is most important to you during your lifetime by considering a gift in Will to CHEO. Our children, youth and families deserve to always have excellent health care, to benefit from lifesaving research and be provided with the support programs to live happy and healthy lives now and forever.

WHAT IS FOREVER CHEO? Forever CHEO is a way to ensure that CHEO will always be here to provide excellent care, lifesaving research and invaluable support to children and their families every day by making a gift from your estate. When you leave a gift in your Will to CHEO you have the option of designating it to address immediate needs within the Hospital, the Research Institute or the Forever CHEO Endowment Fund. This fund will preserve the full amount of your gift and disperse the interest to CHEO annually. Since the fund will live on in perpetuity, so will your gift to future generations of children at CHEO. This is a way to leave a permanent and meaningful mark on your community.

All hail the tartan Several participants in the inaugural Tartan Day, hosted by the McNab and District Celtic Heritage Society, wore tartan clothing and other splashes of Scottish dress Sunday. From left are Boyd MacLaren of McNabBraeside, Joanne McLaren of Renfrew, Barb Tomasini of Renfrew, Val Miller of Horton, Bev Cross of Renfrew and emcee Robert Lamont of McNab-Braeside. At right, Bob Hinchley of White Lake demonstrates twill weaving on his portable loom during the McNab and District Celtic Heritage Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first Tartan Day. Last Sunday, about 40 people attended Horton Community Centre for a pot-luck dinner, before watching Hinchley demonstrate on his loom and give a PowerPoint talk on the history of tartans. The oldest one dates back 3,000 years. The event also featured local musicians. Co-hosts Rose Ann and Boyd MacLaren said the event was an opportunity to generate memberships for the society, enjoy fellowship and become more familiar with Scottish heritage. Hinchley said about 1,000 tartans have been added since the creation of the Scottish Registrar of Tartans in 2008.

Mary panics over loose tooth: Ronny has just the solution Lifestyle - Why my cousins from Montreal were with us that time of year was beyond me. Ronny and Terry had come with Aunt Helen, who promptly went home on the train as soon as their clothes were unpacked. So it looked like they were going to be with us out on the farm for a while. Long enough that Ronny would go off to the Northcote School, while Terry, the youngest, would stay home with Mother. Even though Ronny was a force to contend with, I loved it when the Lapointe cousins visited us on the farm. There was never a dull moment. That early Spring morning, a Saturday it was, I woke with a front tooth in the bottom of my mouth hanging by a thread. I could feel it with my tongue, and I fled my bed like I was on my way to the gallows ... Mother was already in the kitchen stirring porridge. I pointed to the tooth, vowed I was on my death bed, and by that time had woken the entire household who still had not gotten up. Mother looked in my mouth and lifted her hand as if she was about to perform surgery, and I clamped my mouth shut tight, still screaming at the top of my lungs. Ronny came downstairs into the kitchen, immediately knew what all the fuss was about, and announced that he was completely capable of getting rid of the tooth, and I wouldn’t feel a thing. “I get rid of Terry’s all the time,” he said. Terry, still groggy, and too young to know what was going on, curled up on the creton couch by the Findlay Oval and promptly fell back to sleep. Ronny went to the cupboard, got out the ball of string, and ripped off a goodly portion and said he would make a loop over the tooth, I would sit on a chair, and he would walk slowly to the back door, hanging on to the other end of the string, and the tooth would be gone. “You won’t feel a thing,” he said. Well, the last time Ronny experimented with me and one of his high fallootin’ ideas I flew off the shed roof holding an open umbrella and had a splint on my leg for two weeks. Mother was working away at making breakfast for Father and the brothers, who would soon be coming in from the morning chores, and she was paying absolutely no attention to Ronny or me and the seriousness of what was going on around her. I was still crying, with my mouth clamped tight as if my lips had been glued with mucilage. I could wobble the tooth with my tongue, and as far as I was concerned, I was ready to be taken in to old Doctor Murphy. Forget going to the dentist! I remembered the one and only time any of us ever went to a real dentist, it cost three dollars, and my sister Audrey who was the victim, said he nearly killed her! I knew being driven 12 miles into Renfrew to have a wobbly tooth removed by Doctor Murphy was out of the question, and I finally agreed

Mary Cook’s Memories BY MARY COOK

to let Ronny look in my mouth. “You won’t feel a thing,” Ronny said, as he neared my chair with the ball of string. “For goodness sake, Mary, the tooth is just hanging there. Let Ronny do what he has to do so I can get the breakfast on the table. This commotion over a baby tooth is ridiculous,” Mother said as she banged the porridge pot on the Findlay Oval, stirring with a wooden spoon. Making the most of the situation, and adding as much drama as he could muster, Ronny said he would go as far away as the parlour door to pull the string. “That way you won’t know when I am going to do it.” As he neared my mouth, I told him I would put the string around the tooth, and he reluctantly handed me the ball made up of pieces we had retrieved from parcels bought at Briscoes General Store. All the time I was pressing my tongue against the offending tooth, and I could tell it had loosened considerably. And then just as Ronny headed for the parlour, unrolling the string as he went, I felt the tooth lying in the bottom of my mouth. No longer was it a loose tooth ... it was now a tooth that had come out on its own, with the help of my tongue! I didn’t have the heart to tell Ronny it was all over. I had a good hold of the end of the string, and told Ronny I was ready. Ronny jerked the string like he was pulling turnips, and I let it fall to the floor and had the presence of mind to drop the tooth at my feet. Ronny skated around the corner of the kitchen, saw the string and the tooth laying on the floor, and puffed up his chest like had just discovered America! “Told you it wouldn’t hurt. You probably have other teeth that are ready to come out too. Let me have a look.” Well, there was no way I was going to let Ronny pull a perfectly good tooth out of my mouth. No sireee! Mother saved the day by telling us if we didn’t get to the table at once for breakfast, she was clearing the kitchen, and we would all have to wait for dinner at noon for our next mouthful of food. Ronny took the tooth between his thumb and finger, looked it over, and said “I don’t want to be a General any more ... I think I will be a dentist!” • Interested in an electronic version of Mary’s books?

Phillips back in Valley with Redblacks Adam Kveton adam.kveton@metroland.com

Sports - The Ottawa RedBlacks’ first-ever trade deal had an Ottawa native and Arnprior resident coming home after a seven-year career with the Calgary Stampeders. Arnprior resident Justin Phillips, a common face around the Kenwood Centre in town for the past three years, found it hard to leave the Stampeders behind. However, the defensive lineman said he is pumped to be able to play in front of a hometown crowd. Phillips has been training and leading physical activity sessions at the Kenwood Centre since 2011. The RedBlacks announced his acquisition in a February trade. News of the trade was not quite a surprise to Phillips. Although he hadn’t requested a trade, he said he had spoken with Stampeders head coach John Hufnagel before, saying he wouldn’t mind being closer to home. “Ottawa (area) has been my home my whole life,” said Phillips. “Even my seven years with the Stampeders, every off season, I came back to the Ottawa Valley and made my permanent residence in Arnprior.” After seven years in the CFL, Phillips admitted he is getting into the latter portion of his career and that getting to play in front of a hometown crowd would be a good way to finish. It’s a thought he has entertained for most of his career, as rumblings about an Ottawa franchise have been around since Phillips got his start in 2007. Phillips said he is not ungrateful to the team that gave him his start, not to mention a Grey Cup win. “It’s tough leaving,” he said. “(The Stampeders) showed a lot of faith in me by drafting me in the first round way back then, and they stuck with me.” But playing for Calgary meant leaving family and his football roots

PETER CLARK/METROLAND

Ram Rod goaltender Tyler Miller cuts off Cheyenne Two-Axe Kohoko of McGrimmon Holdings during Spring Fling hockey tournament action at the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre. Ram Rod won the Friday night contest 4-2.

Defensive lineman Justin Phillips of Arnprior is now a member of the Ottawa RedBlacks after seven years with the Calgary Stampeders. behind. While the Stampeders gave Phillips his start in the CFL, the Bell Warriors gave him his start in football. When a Grade 8 classmate mentioned his father coached football and that he was going to play, Phillips thought he would try out as well, “and I haven’t looked back.” Playing in the mosquito, peewee and bantam levels with the Warriors, Phillips, surrounded by coaches and other passionate teammates, nurtured his love of the game. “I can’t say I’ve had much more fun in my life than playing football back with those guys,” he said. One of the biggest lessons playing with the Warriors was work ethic, said Phillips. “I always wanted to be the fastest, the strongest,” he said. “I always wanted to be at the top, so from a very young age I developed a good work ethic and I’ve carried that through my entire career and through my life.” To this day, Phillips recalls the

coaches who made a difference for him: Jim Wagdin, Mike Wilson, John Buck and “Coach McQuillan.” “They did a great job in teaching kids and trying to develop men.” With those lessons in mind – alongside his success on defence and with special teams with the Stampeders – Phillips said his RedBlacks coaches are looking to him to be a “stabilizing force” on defence and a leader on special teams. As a veteran with the new franchise, Phillips said he aims to create a winning culture, as well as strengthen CFL interest in Ottawa. “I think we are going to have a chance to really develop strong football roots in this community,” said Phillips. “Hopefully it will get more kids involved in football, more kids coming to the games and being inspired and hopefully developing football careers of their own and seeing where it takes them.” See PHILLIPS, page 36

Queen’s Line fends off McGrimmon in final Peter Clark peter.clark@metroland.com

Sports - The Queen’s Line Jets built up a 4-1 lead and withstood a determined McGrimmon Holdings’ comeback bid, and held on for a 4-3 triumph to win the annual seasonclosing Spring Fling Hockey Tournament April 4 to 6 weekend at the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre. McGrimmon was looking for its third consecutive Spring Fling tournament championship. The Queen’s Line victory earned the Jets top prize money of $550. Scott Conroy notched two goals, including the eventual game winner with 3:34 left in the second period for Queen’s Line. Quinton Rook and Dallas Farr added singles. Matt Schroeder backstopped the Queen’s Line triumph. Greg Gould supplied two goals and Tadum Neuman a single for Mc-

Grimmon Holdings. Jeff Boyce added three assists and Neuman two. Chris Osborne was between the pipes. B AND C CHAMPS

Cybulski Sheet Metal defeated Desi’s Dusters 10-1 to claim the B final. Don Griese, Mike Butler and Chad Davis all scored twice to pace the Sheet Metal attack.

Sports - The owners of Neat coffee house have long been active citizens who enjoy cycling, running and other physical activities. But conversations at their Burnstown business have convinced them that more people are looking for more enjoyable ways to enjoy a healthy lifestyle. Owners Kim and Adam McKinty, therefore, are launching a three-year pilot project, whose first season will consist of six different cycling and running events. The common finish line for each event is Neat; the common goal is to galvanize community and individual physical activity. The organizational committee includes Neat’s general manager, Tori Arsenault. Too often exercise is seen just as a workout or work, instead of being perceived as a fun activity that leaves a smile on one’s face, says Kim. In this series, participants can do the run or cycle for $7 to $17, depending on the distance. There will also be the option of paying $10 for a post-event barbecue and $18 for a t-shirt stylized for each race day’s particular distance. There is one event for April, June, July, August,

September and October for cyclists and runners, with the distance changing each time. Four rides will be staggered departures, while the 25-km and 10-miler will be mass starts. Family members will have the option of doing their staggered cycle start together. The series’ event locations, distances and dates are: • Burnstown, one mile, April 26; • White Lake, five miles, June 1; • Renfrew, 10 kilometres, July 1; • Calabogie, 10 miles, Aug. 9; • Arnprior, half-marathon run, 25-km cycle, Sept. 28; • Stewartville, 8-km cross-country, Oct. 18. All courses are accurately measured and have traffic control. And if you don’t want to run or cycle, you can walk. Usually the cyclists will start shortly before the runners, around 9 a.m. But in the case of next week’s Burnstown onemiler, the cyclists will leave at staggered times, starting around 8 a.m. The run begins at 9 a.m. To create friendly competition among companies, schools and organizations, individuals are also invited to participate on teams.

Sports - As the club grows quieter heading into the warmer weather, it is important to reflect on the season that was and look ahead to the future. This past year began in panic mode as illness, injury and changing family situations depleted the membership to the point that the very survival of the club was in question. This was in sharp contrast to the previous few seasons that had seen steady growth from the last panic situation when failing equipment and a decreasing membership had put the club in distress. But the challenges have been met once again and, as in the previous situation, the club not only survives, but also thrives as

The organizers are getting ready for the first season of the Get Here From There Series. As with all six events, the kickoff event April 26 finishes at Neat, the Burnstown coffee house and eatery. From left are Neat general manager Tori Arsenault and owners Adam and Kim McKinty. founded Neat in 2008, Kim says they were told they wouldn’t make a go of it with a restaurant that provides food and a venue for big-name singers and entertainers. Knowing the challenges of creating a business that’s now turning a profit, Kim says the Get Here From There Series could follow a similar path, by gradually gathering momentum and becoming a mainstay. Whatever the future

holds, the McKintys say they’ll run the series for three years. Details of costs, course profiles and other events details are available at www. goodfood.com. Go to the various event links under the Fitness column. Participants can register online or onsite the morning of the event. Participants will also be invited to support the local Special Olympics program through pledge forms,

and by donating beer bottles or Canadian Tire money. The McKintys say they hope the series gives people a sense of play and adventure, creates a connection between communities, and heightens participants’ awareness of their own physical-activity potential. The Get Here From There Series calls for six events each of the first two years, and nine events in the third year.

extensive and innovative recruitment methods have restored numbers to a healthy level. Not only that, but a renewed sense of camaraderie permeates the club’s membership as extensive efforts have been made to restore the club to good health. Every event was a major success, more people were involved in club activities, new initiatives were started and more people pitched in. Is it all rosy? No, but some major steps have been taken. There still remains the last major equipment expense of replacing the brine pipes that carry the refrigerant to keep the ice frozen and in its ideal state for curling. This is a $100,000-plus project and will require support from all quarters. Many of the leadership group have taken the club through two major resurrections

and are ready to step down and be replaced with new blood that will carry the club forward into the future. Membership needs to continue to grow, as this will be the only sure way of seeing a dynamic curling club surviving and prospering in this community. The message needs to be spread and heard by the community that the curling club is a warm and friendly spot and that curling is a wonderful pastime that can be enjoyed by everyone. This is also a time to say thanks to the many volunteers that have gone above and beyond. Many of you have put in countless hours this year and many years previously. A special thanks also to the good people at The Mercury for helping and supporting this rank amateur as he contributed views from behind the glass for another year.

Valley Pride Midgets prep for Eastern Ontario basketball tournament Staff

Sports - It has been a very demanding season for the Arnprior-based Valley Pride midget girls basketball team. With horrendous scheduling due to weather causing frequent cancellations, it has been difficult to have any consistent improvement in skill building and game play. For the third time in their five-month season, the players came off a long four-week layoff and played in a quad meet in late March at Ingleside.

In the first game, the team exhibited some rust and fell behind early to the Ottawa Shooting Stars. The Pride was attempting to win the four-game season series, as they had captured the first two games against the Stars while losing the third. The Pride is not blessed with height and were out-rebounded and gave up too many second chances to hope to win. A victory was not in the stars, as the Pride came out on the short end of a 45-31 score. Andrea Martin and Hannah Scott led all

The Pride’s second game, which was a backto-back contest, was against the host team, Upper Canada Ice 1. As usual, the Pride started off slowly, but found their second wind and cruised to a 61-40 win. Again Martin and Scott led the offence. Dakota Hanson made some awesome passes to set buckets and dumped in a couple hoops herself. Courtney Roach and Jaime Banks set

the tone with their pesky defense and hustle. The Pride continued their domination of the Ice teams, as they defeated the Ice 2 team 4941 to complete the season sweep. However, it took a team effort as Banks, Kenny, King and Roach hit crucial free-throws. Logan Kenny, Melissa Thompson and Gwen Flegal all dumped in points in the last couple of minutes to allow the Pride to escape with a win. Coaches Raili Quathemar and Dick Holmes were happy with the effort. The team is now looking forward to a tri-meet in Cornwall.

Sports - Long-time members and volunteer workers for the Renfrew Badminton Club, Wardie and Helen Anderson are retiring after 55 years on the job. This couple played as members since 1959 and took over general management and finances for the club in 1980 when they decided to quit playing and hang up their racquets. The Andersons have faithfully attended badminton nights every Tuesday and Thursday at the Renfrew Armouries to sit at the door and collect monies, enroll members, and give

constructive criticism on play and club issues. They have done this now, for 34 years. The last tournament that Wardie and Helen were involved in was the weekend of April 4 and 5. Renfrew hosted the Findlay/Wiser badminton tournament, which is an annual event for teams in the Valley. Wardie and Helen will be greatly missed by all as they have been the driving force behind this club and a great asset to the community in the continuation and functioning of the Renfrew Badminton Club.

Ask yourself these questions: Do you like hitting things? Do you like being outside? Do you think Rafael Nadal is hot? The Renfrew Tennis Club may be the answer to all of these questions. We offer four high-quality lit ten-

Registration will take place at the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre on Friday, April 25 (7 to 9 p.m.) and again on Saturday, April 26 (9 a.m. to noon).

Sports - Jacob Collins of Renfrew now has his sights on the next step of his hockey career. Collins was recently taken in the fifth round, 99th player overall, in the Ontario Hockey League draft by the Plymouth Whalers. The forward played this past year with the Ottawa Valley AAA Minor Midget Titans. • The Union College Dutchmen captured the school’s first NCAA Division I men’s ice hockey championship on Saturday night. Four first-period goals jumpstarted the Dutchmen to a 7-4 win over the Minnesota Golfers at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, home of the Philadelphia Flyers. Union College’s cham-

pionship lineup included Matt Wilkins of Kimberley, B.C., born Jan. 26, 1991. Parents Mark and Cindy (Traill) are from Renfrew. A sophomore with Union, Wilkins received the team’s rookie-of-theyear honours in 2012-13. Union is also where Renfrew’s Jason Walters played his college hockey. • The Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League final is going down to a winner-take-all. The Ottawa West Golden Knights posted 3-2 and 3-1 wins to grab a 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven series. The Casselman Vikings answered with 3-2 and 41 wins to force a game 7, played this past Monday night in Ottawa. The winner goes to the first Eastern Canadian Junior B Hockey championship in Port Hawkesbury, N.S.

We are extremely fortunate to have talented folks in our community who visit and entertain our continuing care patients, and many who enhance the service provided by our medical team simply by sharing a friendly conversation or holding a patient’s hand. Your efforts bring a smile to their face and enrich their care. “We have people helping with so many different aspects of the hospital—serving on the Board of Directors, with the Foundation, all of the programs associated with our Hospital Auxiliary—who all do such a great job. To all of the volunteers who contribute to patient care, on behalf of all of us, I want to say thank you for all that you do.” —Randy Penney, RVH President and CEO

Above, volunteers put the pieces together at RVH’s annual Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon.

Why you do it

Volunteers say they choose RVH because... “I want to give back to my community. Our hospital is so important to the people in this area. I enjoy helping in any way I can.”

“It’s a very worthy cause. Everyone uses the hospital at some point in their lives. I’m very proud of OUR hospital!”

“We are very fortunate to have such an excellent, well run hospital in Renfrew.”

“I find it very rewarding and stimulating. It’s exciting to see our hospital grow and prosper.”

“I am very grateful to have such a terrific hospital, very friendly, always helpful and just a wonderful facility. I’m proud to be part of it!”

News - Greater Madawaska will be sending a letter to all residents informing them of the significant proposed changes to the billing of policing services. It will explain how the funding model is fundamentally flawed and request that residents contact the premier and minister of community

safety and correctional services to explain how this impact will affect them. “It educates them that there is a problem,” Mayor Peter Emon said. “Using the numbers we are given by the Province of Ontario, we will be paying $600,000 more a year for policing, and we don’t think that’s an appropriate number.

Gathering insights on teens’ brains and their behaviour Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

Community - Guest speaker Steven Walsh focused on talking about teenagers’ brains and behaviour, and what parents can do when that behavior appears to have headed too far south. When youth are experiencing troubling times, the finger of blame is often pointed at their parents. But it’s highly likely that developments in the brain, which probably won’t be fully developed until one’s mid-20s, are at the root of their stressful times, said Walsh during a special presentation March 19 at St. Joseph’s Catholic High School. Walsh said parents and other caregivers need to better understand how the teenage brain develops and know where to turn in the health-care system for information. GETTING THROUGH THIS

“The idea tonight was to give parents some information and to learn that kids have the ability to get through this, but that we need to be there to support them,” said the key-

note speaker, a college lecturer, registered nurse and married father of youngsters ages 11 and 18. FRUSTRATED

“If we can give parents some abilities, some powers, to do something (that’s what we want). There are so many parents that are frustrated, but we don’t want them to shut down. We want them to do the opposite. We want them to open up. They just need the tools.” As he told the audience, “You can’t say should, should, could, could, because that doesn’t work. Parents need to step back and figure out why they’re criticizing their children,” said Walsh. “Sometimes there has to be some limit-setting. But are you stepping back to reinforce that you’re effecting a change or are you criticizing them because you love them and want something to change.” The idea of labeling behaviour as bad is not recommended, said Walsh. “But if we understand the reasons behind the behaviour, then we can try and understand what’s going on.”

A good thing for parents to know, said Walsh, is that the prefrontal cortex of the teenage brain, which is used for thinking about things logically, is in the development stage. Therefore, teens are more prone to riskier and impulsive behaviour, and less likely to consider the consequences of their actions. Use of alcohol and drugs can also delay this development, said Walsh. Ways parents can help their troubled children, said Walsh, include paying attention to their feelings and avoiding quick-trigger responses. Walsh said one study shows that only 18 per cent of teenagers whose parents who are significantly involved in their lives resort to drugs. Similarly, triggers for risky behaviour by teenagers include parental expressions of disappointment in their teenagers. Tears can be a hugely helpful tool for communication between children and parents, said Walsh. Tears, he said, can serve to reveal how parents also have experienced

some of the same troubles their teenagers are facing. Or tears can serve as an invitation for the teenager to speak when he or she might not otherwise. “What kids learn from not allowing emotion to happen, is how to control their emotions,” said Walsh. “That’s not a healthy thing. You need to express your emotions. Sometimes those emotions are not what you want to hear. Sometimes there’s yelling, sometimes there’s crying, but that’s allowing the venting process to happen, and then allowing rebuilding. “Parents crying with children,” added Walsh, “causes the child to understand that parents are also human beings. “Sometimes teenagers think their parents are some aliens.” Since speaking a year ago in Cobden, Walsh says there continues to be a growing sense of the importance of including family members when dealing with troubled teens. “If we always just rely on the psy-

The Foxden

chologist, the social worker, the professionals, we lose focus on the core (of family members) that are going to help that person,” said Walsh. Walsh also summarized suicide warning signs. These include giving stuff away, loss of energy, loss of interest in friends, repeated expressions of desperation or hopelessness, and actually expressing suicidal thoughts. Avoidance isn’t a helpful coping mechanism, but parents need to know how to ask if their kids are contemplating suicide. “If you ask about it, you’re opening the door,” said Walsh. It’s also important, if the parent hears the child admitting to having suicidal thoughts, to not over-react and to be ready to listen right then and there. That’s why a parent may establish better communication with a child by spending more time one-on-one. So, find opportunities to create that time, stressed Walsh. “It’s all about connections,” he said.

Steven Walsh, a registered nurse at The Royal and youth-trauma lecturer at Algonquin College, speaks to his Renfrew audience.

Advice for couples during challenging times Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

Community - For the second straight year, the Renfrew Rotary Club has brought specialists to the Renfrew area to address growing concerns over youth mental health. Steven Walsh, a registered nurse at The Royal (Ottawa Hospital) and Algonquin College lecturer on addiction and trauma, was one of three speakers before a large crowd in Cobden a year ago. March 19, Walsh returned as one

of two guest speakers at St. Joseph’s Catholic High School in Renfrew. The other was Tom Sidney, director of the new Suicide Prevention and Crisis Centre for Youth and Families in Pembroke and Renfrew. Introducing both speakers was Rotary Club member Janet Springer of Jeffrey’s Lake whose son took his own life two and a half years ago. Since her son’s death, Springer and fellow Rotarians have worked to enhance education and awareness about youth mental health See SIDNEY, page 44

Sidney Continued from page 43

Before a crowd of about 80 people, Sidney spoke about the need for both the mother’s and father’s participation in dealing with stressful situations faced by their teenagers. Too often, men don’t get as involved in the emotional challenges facing their children, but they need to, said Sidney. Sidney explained that the local crisis centre specializes in suicide prevention, assessment and crisis intervention while working with teenagers and their families. He said the clinic uses a wrap-around approach, which means including as many people as the youth and their parents desire, to develop coping strategies. In the last nine months, 112 individuals have come to the crisis centres in Renfrew and Pembroke, of which five were referred to the hospital. Nobody has returned to the hospital, said Sidney. “The main goal of this clinic is to make people feel that they’re not alone. It’s to make sure they know they have a place to go and that they know they’re going to be seen. And there’s no wait list. Renfrew’s crisis centre is open from 5 to 9 p.m. every Thursday in the Service Ontario building on Plaunt Street, but the clinic often stays open longer to accommodate visitors. “It doesn’t have to be the child in crisis,” said Sidney, who says parents may find themselves in crisis, too, while trying to deal with current or potential crises affecting their child. Often, mothers seek assistance or provide direction, while fathers don’t. Often, said Sidney, this is because men think they can’t fix the situation, therefore they back off, sometimes acting clueless, perhaps because they’re scared or feeling inadequate. But Sidney said those roles need to be modified somewhat, so mom and dad come together to deal with a child’s situation, without dropping everything else going on, including matters related to other children in the family. “We need to learn to be healthy and try and work together,” stressed Sidney.

“Communication is a key. First of all, you going to be any good to anybody. Just because cause your child is going through some stuff were teenagers too – risk-taking behaviour, your child is going through some stuff doesn’t doesn’t mean we let it go because it could be pushing the envelope a little bit. That’s normal mean the world is ending. However, just be- something,” said Sidney. behaviour; don’t panic … Communicate with your partner. Who’s comfortable with what? Who’s not comfortable with what? Who’s going to handle what? Who’s not going to handle what? What is dad comfortable doing?” Sidney adds: “Parents, honestly, when your child is in crisis, that crisis cannot take over Eady Realty lnc. your family. Your family needs to balance. If there’s another child in the house, they still have needs … It doesn’t mean you neglect the child who’s in need.” Sidney also advised couples to consider seeking outside assistance, not a marriage counsellor necessarily, but someone to whom they can vent together. “Because we often get into a blame game,” said Sidney, noting the marriage will keep the family going, but that family members need to know that everyone responds to crises differently. “If we don’t know what those crises are and we don’t know how we respond, we’re not Kelly Derue of CENTURY is also an active member of tor to the overall success of 21 Eady Realty lnc. has been the community, contributing our office and the CENTURY 21 System as a whole,” said awarded the Masters Ruby to various local charities.

Mayor Emon added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unless they are going to charge a fee for service, which they are not likely too, then how are they going to recover those costs? Why should we, as residential taxpayers, pay for that?â&#x20AC;? The mayor said, as an example, if someone breaks into a warehouse and steals flatscreen TVs, and then comes back a week later and takes stereos, why should the

municipality pay. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a cost for investigating. Why should we cover that?â&#x20AC;? CLEAR BAGS

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get the results we were hoping for,â&#x20AC;? public works manager Jamie Doering said of the townshipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clear bag program. However, council will continue with the program for another year and review its find-

ings Nov. 3, 2014. Doering noted that after one year of the program, the townshipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s diversion rate was three per cent and different options will be considered if no improvement is shown. Options include making recycling and clear bags mandatory with a bylaw, and enforcing it with the bylaw officer. Residents would be turned away for not complying. Another option is bag tags.

There would be a charge for each bag of garbage while recycling is free. Mayor Emon hopes it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come to this. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are informing people what these possible solutions are. At this point, we still believe it is not necessary to use any of those. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We think that people have made an effort to improve, and there is still room for improvement,â&#x20AC;? the mayor added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important for us to

meet the provincial targets for diversion and we need their help to do it.â&#x20AC;? The township plans to educate the public more, and promote the recycling program through flyers, website and newspaper advertising. It costs money to administer the bylaw enforcement officer, or a bag tag system, so it makes sense to try and get it through voluntary compliance, Mayor Emon added.

Belsher doesn’t sell necklaces, but... Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

News - A collector of Dionne Quintuplet memorabilia for years, Leonard Belsher of Shawville came to the CBC set of Four Rooms asking $15,000 for infant necklaces gifted to the famous five almost 80 years ago. He didn’t get his asking price. He didn’t even accept a price, after a high offer of $1,500 from the first of four potential buyers, Derreck Martin. But Belsher says selling the freshwater pearl necklaces was secondary to what he most wanted to accomplish during his April 13 appearance in Four Rooms’ final episode of the season. The first goal was the bring to the forefront the story of the first quintuplets to survive beyond infancy, said Belsher “I really enjoyed it. I would do it again,” said the 54-year-old Shawville mailman of his appearance on CBC. “What I take from it was that I was on national television across the country, and able to remind Canadians of the Dionne Quintuplets’ story that so many people have forgotten.” The quintuplets became wards of

the Province after accusations that their father wanted to exploit them at the world’s fair in Chicago. Two of the five are still living, Annette and Cecile, and they celebrate their 80th birthday on May 28, 2014. When Belsher came on Four Rooms, he was asked the value of the necklaces. “That’s why I’m here to find out from you today,” he replied, before revealing in behind-closed doors negotiations that he was asking $15,000. Belsher, who says he would have entertained $2,500 or $3,000, added, “The art of negotiation is what the show is all about.” The other potential buyers were Jessica Phillips, Scott Landon and Eddy Rogo, who is regarded as the most aggressive of the foursome.

“Ed is the most vocal,” said Belsher. “He’s quite a spitfire.” Rogo seemed less interested when Belsher said he couldn’t verify that the quintuplets had actually worn the pearl necklaces, but said he would offer $250. Belsher said he knows the necklaces were in “their possession for two years.” Landon said he could probably offer $1,000. Belsher also spent more time on the set that was shown during the season finale, which also featured other sellers. But sessions are edited for time and content. Sunday’s most successful seller came away with $12,000 for a 108million-year fossil. Another buyer sold a Ray Charles suit and accessories for $2,100.

R0022143777/0410

News - Contractor Philip Slobodzian of Renfrew, who has been operating in the Ottawa area as Country Comfort Living Inc., has pleaded guilty to several charges under Ontario’s Consumer Protection Act. After his plea March 20, he was sentenced to two months in jail followed by two years’ probation. He was also ordered to pay $6,000 restitution. In May 2013, a consumer entered into an agreement with Slobodzian for the installation of vinyl siding on his home. Justice of the Peace Brian Mackey of the Nepean Provincial Offences Court convicted Slobodzian on charges of: • engaging in an unfair practice by making a false, misleading or deceptive representation, • failing to refund payment within 15 days of being given notice of cancellation of the consumer agreement, and • failing to provide a consumer with a proper contract containing the information required by the Consumer Protection Act. This is the fourth time Slobodzian has been convicted under the Consumer Protection Act. In 2013, he was convicted of similar offences and sentenced to four months in jail and ordered to pay $12,500 restitution – he has appealed this decision. In 2011, he was sentenced to 71 days in jail, to be followed by two years’ probation. His company, PSC New Home Construction Inc., was fined $90,000. Upon release from jail, Slobodzian failed to comply with the terms of his probation – specifically, paying consumers back. As a result, he is facing additional charges.
