Renfrew County marathoners are alive, but shaken, after two bomb blasts left two people dead and about two dozen others injured at Mondayʼs Boston Marathon. Stewart Campbell, a former Renfrew resident who now lives in Pembroke, celebrated his 55th birthday by completing the 117th edition of one of North Americaʼs most prestigious road races. Campbell finished his 25th marathon in 3 hours, 11 minutes. But about an hour later one of his Pembroke running colleagues, Bob Bobeldijk, 76, was within about 300 metres of the finish line where the first bomb exploded. Bobeldijk kept on running, but 10 seconds later a second bomb went off, closer to him, and security people rushed onto the course and prevented any runners from continuing. Earlier in the race, Bobeldijk stopped to use one of the race course portable washrooms, which Campbell surmises may have saved his life. Most worrisome for Bo-

beldijk was that he knew his wife Arpick was waiting for him near the finish line. It was only when they found each other, and embraced, that he was able to relax. “Everyone (of my friends here) was worried because they knew I would come in about this time,” he said. “It was emotional to see each other alive,” he said. Bobeldijk also emailed his daughter in Pembroke and son in Vancouver to let them know he was okay. “Iʼm just devastated,” said Campbell. “Itʼs changed the whole marathoning scene. I was hoping to go to New York for the marathon this fall, but now thereʼs going to be dog sniffers everywhere.” He was also hoping to run his 10th Boston Marathon next year, but now time will tell what organizers are thinking about the future of this and many other international events. Renfrew resident Colleen Berry, who has run four Boston Marathons, was not in Boston this week, but had wondered for years if something like this might actually happen.

Farmers gather to protest release of GM alfalfa Jennifer McIntosh

The release of geneticallymodified alfalfa could be the last straw for a dwindling bee population, said bee keeper Susan Hamilton. Hamilton, along with four dozen farmers from across Ottawa and the valley, came out to protest the potential release of the herbicide tolerant alfalfa at the Canadian Food Inspection Agency headquarters in Nepean on April 9. “We have had bees since 1973 and the population is dwindling already,” Hamilton said. “This will eventually kill them off.” Hamilton added that pollinating the alfalfa genetically modified to include the herbicide Roundup could hurt and eventually kill bees. Forage Genetics International has applied Monsantoʼs Roundup Ready technology to alfalfa and Canada already approved it for health and environmental release in 2005. Variety registration with the agency is the last step before it can become commercially available. Demonstrators with the National Farmers Union


Lauretta Rice, secretary with the Renfew County chapter of the National Farmers Union, addresses the crowd as four dozen farmers called for a stop to genetically modified alfalfa during a protest outside the Canadian Food Inspection Agency on April 9. and the Canadian Biotechnology Action Network (CBAN) hoped to halt the process by letting the powers that be know how they and consumers feel.

Alfalfa is a high-protein feed for dairy cows, beef cattle, lambs, poultry and pigs, but because labelling for genetically modified crops is not mandatory in Canada, itʼs

unlikely consumers will know they are eating altered crops. Lucy Sharratt, a co-ordinator with the action network, said 38 communities across the country organized demonstrations in a four-week period. “Seventeen communities in eastern Ontario were holding demonstrations today,” she said, adding eastern Canada is where the genetically-modified alfalfa would be rolled out first. Lauretta Rice, whose son runs a dairy farm in Douglas, Ont., went to the protest because she said the introduction of the Monsanto technology would kill off the more than 200 varieties of the plant that her son produces locally. Alfalfa is a perennial plant that is pollinated. The intro-

duction of a genetically-modified strain will cross-pollinate with organic forms and threaten the livelihood of local farmers, she said. The Canadian Forage and Grassland Association released a report the potential impact of Roundup Ready alfalfa on Canadaʼs forage industry in June 2012. “The introduction of RRA, and subsequent GE (genetically-engineered) alfalfa traits, into Canada could have a negative impact on certain export seed, forage, honey and the entire organic industry,” the report reads. “RRA would give forage producers a new and effective weed control system. Successful introduction would also encourage biotechnology companies to continue developing other GE

alfalfa traits adapted to the Canadian market.” But the Grain Growers of Canada, an association that represents 50,000 farmer members, issued a press release the same day of the protest, saying they support technologies that enable Canadians to farm sustainably. We support Canadaʼs robust science-based regulatory environment which ensures any new crops or traits are proven safe for human consumption, animal feed and our environment,” Stephen Vandervalk, president of the Grain Growers of Canada, said in the release. “While we appreciate that many long-time opponents of progress have concerns, the reality is they have a lot of rhetoric, but no facts to back up their case.” But Sharrat said someone in the government needs to take responsibility. “Our government doesnʼt even consider the potential economic costs before it allows GM (genetically modified) crops like this onto the market,” she said. “Farmers are left to bear the costs of GM contamination, which in the case of alfalfa would be borne by many types of family farmer across Canada.” Paul Slomp, a resident of Manotick Station who sells grass-fed, organic, non-certified beef to more than 200 clients in the Ottawa area, said the introduction of the modified plant doesnʼt make sense. “Farmers donʼt want it and I know my consumers donʼt want it,” he said. “We have to ask ourselves who is making the decisions around what kind of food we eat, why on earth is this being legitimized and being commercialized in Canada?”

The Grain Growers of Canada and its over 50,000 farmer members have always been strong supporters of new technologies that enable us to farm more sustainably. “We support Canadaʼs robust science-based regulatory environment which ensures any new crops or traits are proven safe for human consumption, animal feed and our environment” said Stephen Vandervalk, president of the Grain Growers of Canada. “While we appreciate that many long-time opponents of progress have concerns, the reality is they have a lot of rhetoric, but no facts to back up their case.” This statement of over-

whelming farmer support for modern agriculture is in response to a day of protest being organized by the U.S.funded Canadian Biotechnology Action Network whose supporters having lost their case in the States are now trying to block the same innovation in Canada. “This is more about a special interest group trying to get attention to support their fundraising than it is about any real health concerns,” said Richard Phillips, executive director of the Grain Growers of Canada. “In fact, this new alfalfa has been researched and approved by the Canadian Government and has full food, feed and environmental release approval, as it has in the United States as well.”

Farmers across Canada and around the world are rapidly accepting new GM traits because damaging populations of weeds, insects and diseases are controlled with fewer pesticides. Of 28 countries that planted genetically modified crops last year, 20 were developing and eight industrial countries. Acreage has also increased quickly; farmers planted 170 million acres worldwide in 2006 and over 420 million acres worldwide in 2012. The Grain Growers of Canada represents over 50,000 successful wheat, durum, barley, canola, oat, corn, pea, lentil, soybean, rye and triticale farmers. See www.Qrginarowers, ca for more.

Warrants issued in armed robbery Renfrew OPP

The Renfrew detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) has issued arrest warrants for two males following the investigation into an armed robbery at Mill Music in Renfrew in February. On Saturday, Feb. 9 at about 3 p.m., two males entered Mill Music on Argyle Street North in Renfrew. The males fled the scene with the two stolen guitars after unsuccessful attempts to use fraudulent credit cards and displaying what appeared to be a holstered gun. One suspect has been identified as Christopher Sarmado-

poulos, 52, of Vaudreuil-Dorion, Que. He is facing several charges, including robbery, two counts of fraudulent use of a credit card, two counts of identity theft, two counts of breach of probation, fraud over $5,000, fraud under $5,000, and procuring false identity documents. The other suspect has been identified as Robert Gravel, 50, of Montreal. He is wanted for robbery, fraud over $5,000, identity theft, procuring false identity documents, and fraudulent use of a credit card. Both suspects are considered potentially armed and dangerous and a risk to public

safety. Anyone who may know of the whereabouts of these wanted suspect(s) or who may come into contact with the suspects should not approach them. Instead, contact the police as soon as possible by calling 9-1-1. Should you wish to remain anonymous, you may call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-2228477 (TIPS), where you may be eligible to receive a cash reward of up to $2,000 Det.-Const. Sean Smith is leading the investigation. Anyone with information is asked to contact the OPP at 1-888-310-1122 or the Renfrew OPP at 613-432-3211.

MPP launches petition against tire fees Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MPP John Yakabuski has joined with his colleagues in the Ontario Progressive Conservative caucus in launching a petition calling on the provincial government to stop increases to Ontario Tire Stewardship (OTS) fees for agriculture tires that came into effect on April 1. The new fees, which include tires for agricultural vehicles, dump trucks and equipment used in the forestry sector, will increase the cost of doing business by as much as 2,200 per cent, Yakabuski maintains. The eco-fee for a front tire on a harvester combine, for example, will jump to $352.80 – up from just $15.29. “These new fees are just another example of the Ontario Liberals making policy without consulting or considering those that would be impacted.” Yakabuski said. “At a time when businesses in rural Ontario are struggling just to keep their heads above water, these new fees put our farmers and foresters at a huge competitive disadvantage.” The new fees classify agricultural tires as off-road. Yakabuski pointed out that no other province has fees close to the level of those in Ontario. As an example, the eco fees on the tires for a John Deer 9770 combine in Ontario would cost $1,646.40, compared to $210 in British Columbia, $90 in Saskatchewan, $54 in New-

foundland, and $24 in Prince Edward Island and Manitoba. “This massive increase in Ontario Tire Stewardship fees for agricultural tires will take millions out of our agricultural industry and cause losses to our farm equipment dealerships,” said Opposition Agriculture Critic Ernie Hardeman. “We need to ask ourselves how it can cost that much more to recycle a tractor tire in Ontario than in other provinces?” By contrast, the PC Party has unveiled a new plan that holds manufacturers and importers of tires responsible for recycling, but gives them the freedom to work with other businesses to find the best way possible to carry out that responsibility. “The PC Party is committed to scrapping this tire program and would hold manufacturers and importers of tires responsible for recycling their own waste.” Yakabuski said. The PC plan would permit competition among different tire-recycling service providers, rather than having one organization control the marketplace. The PCs would remove the governmentmandated control that industry-funding organizations currently have over recycling electronics, tires and household hazardous materials by opening up all of these sectors to the freemarket.

QUEENʼS PARK – Yesterday Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MPP John Yakabuski joined with his colleague MPP Jim Wilson and the entire PC caucus to support the Public Sector Capacity to Pay Act, 2013. If passed, the Bill would have modernized public sector interest arbitration in Ontario in three key ways: • First, arbitratorsʼ decisions would be required to factor in specific economic and budgetary factors, like the taxpayersʼ capacity to pay, when making decisions and explain those decisions in writing; • Second, it would make arbitrators accountable by ensuring cases are decided

within tight timelines and provide full written reasons that explain how the decision was arrived at; • Third, create a Capacity to Pay Division which would publish comparative information on compensation, as well as proactively disclose all arbitration decisions. Despite being supported by the Association of Municipalities of Ontario (AMO), the Eastern Ontario Mayorsʼ Committee (EOMC), and the Ontario Hospital Association (OHA) the Liberal and NDP caucuses teamed up to defeat the bill. “Itʼs time to fix a broken system that awards unaffordable contract settlements at the expense of municipal taxpayers” Yakabuski said. “It is no longer acceptable for arbitrators to assume that munici-

palities should raise taxes to pay for these arbitration decisions.” Yakabuski added that the Capacity to Pay Act is a part of the Ontario PC plan to make government workersʼ wages reflect taxpayersʼ capacity to pay and help municipalities get labour costs under control – costs that are driving up property taxes and putting these valuable services at risk. “The reckless overspending of the McGuinty-Wynne Liberals since 2003 has doubled Ontarioʼs debt and put Ontario in a deep financial hole,” said Yakabuski. “We must take urgent action to get our fiscal house in order and ensure scarce tax dollars go to the things people care about, like front-line health care and classroom education,” he said.

and Gail Lunney of Renfrew. Recently acclaimed president of the federal RenfrewNipissing-Pembroke Liberal Riding Association, he assumed the position at the associationʼs AGM in Eganville last night. Also acclaimed were vice-president Ian Kuehl of Pembroke, treasurer Rob Jamieson and communications chair Meredith CaplanJamieson. Jamieson, who works as a senior director for the Liberal Party of Canada, says heʼs excited about the new blood brought by younger-generation Liberals such as Lunney and Kuehl. “I like that heʼs going to bring the drive to get to (the election of) 2015,” said Jamieson of the new president. “Heʼs also a good team motivator, to be sure, and he gets the new methods of communication, with Facebook and social media. To organize as a movement, this is how you do it and this is how people are now talking in the Ottawa Valley. Ryan gets all of that.” Lunneyʼs also president for a riding association that is spearheading a new organizational structure whose focus is on decentralization and more citizen participation. With the help of the national Liberal partyʼs focus on creating supporters (who donʼt have to become party members), participation in the party is up, says Jamieson. The new organizational structure has been a work in process since last summer. “We talked about how we were doing things, and we werenʼt out in the riding,” admitted Lunney, who lives in Ottawa, but calls Renfrew home. “The party, at the national level, has been talking about renewal, about opening its doors to new ideas, about how we can better represent and better serve Canadians. And you know what, itʼs a really good time for us (in RenfrewNipissing-Pembroke) to do the same. The theme that kept coming out for us is that we want to keep it local.” So, no more parachute candidates? “I really canʼt speak to that,” he replies calmly. “I wasnʼt part of the last nomination at all, and we shall see. I think the leadership (race) will have an impact on that too, depending on who wins,” added Lunney. Before last Sundayʼs convention he correctly predicted Justin Trudeau, son of former Canadian prime minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau, would win because heʼs by far the most popular candidate. Lunney was the riding captain for Trudeau during the campaign that helped generate


Ryan Lunney is the federal Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke Liberal Riding Association’s newly-acclaimed president. more than 127,000 registered online voters. “Itʼs been a great thing. Opening the party to the supporter class has gotten a lot more people to hop on board … Itʼs been a long time since weʼve had a unifying leadership campaign,” added Lunney. “More than anything, heʼs managed to deal with a lot of criticisms levelled at him. And heʼs managed to stay above the potshots, but still engender the support.” Asked if charisma has been a missing part of recent Liberal candidates in the local riding, Lunney doesnʼt miss a beat. “Weʼve been very lucky with the candidates we have had, but the problems in Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke go further than charisma and things like that. “Thereʼs a change that needs to happen and thatʼs really what weʼre trying to do … Getting involved is the way things get done.” Meanwhile, he says the primary and immediate concern of the riding association isnʼt to defeat MP Cheryl Gallant. First things first, he suggests. “Thatʼs not really what our motivation is,” replied Lunney. “Itʼs about getting the Liberal Party back into peopleʼs minds, and hopefully hearts, and that weʼre an option for them.” An open attitude will also be characteristic of the way the local riding association works, says Lunney, admitting it was too closed door before. Lunney says the muzzling by Prime Minister Stephen Harper of his own caucus has shown how difficult it is for local issues to be heard. Meanwhile, Lunney says governance is the job of everyone. “I really think politics can

make a real difference, and make things incrementally better, when itʼs practiced right,” stresses Lunney. “Thatʼs really the bottom line. Itʼs the way to make our homes, our families, our society in general, just a better place to be. And politics is people getting active in their communities to make them better.” Step one for the local riding association is to build the local Liberal Partyʼs base of volunteers. Step two is to deliver on issues and get answers for the ridingʼs citizens when questions arise. “Itʼs not glamorous work, but itʼs necessary,” said Lunney. Step three is preparation to win an election. “Our job is ongoing groundwork, on a monthly, weekly basis. We want to be in touch with the people who are out there,” says Lunney, who says this can be done with help from the federal Liberal caucus and by inviting experts to speak on particular issues. “Essentially, the idea is that you donʼt have to go looking into the deep, dark corners of the riding to find us.” As president, Lunney says he brings youthful energy. “Our new model is in many ways more activist … and about talking to people. That requires lots of energy and thatʼs what I think Iʼll primarily bring. “We have a plan, and now it needs to be delivered, and I think Iʼm really capable to handle the reins of it, and see it through to completion.” Lunney succeeds veteran Liberal supporter Tom Adamchick as president. “I think heʼs going to be dynamite,” said Adamchick. “And I really like the plan weʼre coming forward with.”

Day to be pink and powerful at Renfrew school Steve Newman

Who says boys donʼt wear pink? Most of St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Schoolʼs more than 220 students, both girls and boys, were decked out in pink for the Day of Pink assembly. The Renfrew elementary school has been connected to the anti-bullying message for a few years, but the 45-minute assembly held April 10 was a way to extend that message beyond announcements and other isolated educational activities at the elementary school. “You do what you can do as a classroom teacher, but you still hear of things going on in the school or outside of school,” said assembly emcee and Grade 1 teacher Liz Richards. “So hopefully, theyʼll remember this day and make a different choice as far as bullying.” Early in the assembly, Richards presented a large thank-you card, with student signatures, to Erin Broome on behalf of MacKillican and Associates for sponsoring the balloons and helium used for the assembly climax of sending more than 100 balloons to the roof of the gym. Each balloon contained a message written by a student to promote anti-bullying behaviour, like Be a

The assembly was told the Day of Pink originated in the fall of 2009 in a small Nova Scotia town where two Grade 12 students overheard students threatening to beat up another student. In response, they bought 50 T-

shirts and contacted friends, encouraging them to wear pink clothing the next day. The next day more than 100 students showed up wearing pink for the anti-bullying display. “Today the hope is that, here at STA, we can all stand together to stop bullying; to make a choice to stand up and say no, because some-

times it just starts with one person,” said Richards. The assembly included a student skit on bullying prevention; a Don’t Laugh at Me video; students singing Pinkʼs Perfect and Cyndi Lauperʼs True Colours. There was also a reading by Grade 1 students of a prayer that included

these lines: • Help us remember that when we pick on someone they are angry but also afraid. • Help us remember that when we donʼt stick up for someone who is being bullied, they are alone. • Help us to make good choices in our treatment of our classmates and friends, and to realize that sometimes itʼs not enough just to be sorry. The assembly also featured students reading the biblical story of the Good Samaritan who came to the rescue of a man who was attacked by thieves and left for dead. In the end Jesus asks others to behave like the Good Samaritan, and not like the first two men who saw the battered man, but did nothing. As the assembly drew to a close, emcee Richards said staff members “hoping all the things youʼve seen and heard will be memorable enough to help you in making your own choices about how you treat others. “The adults here, and even your classmates and friends, can tell you your actions or words are unkind … but the decision still lies with you on what your choice will be. Will you be the one that stands up? Will you be the one to be a neighbour? Remember, itʼs your choice and it only takes one!” In the assemblyʼs final seconds, the studentsʼ countdown was “5-4-32-1, STA is against bullying!”

Federal funds for Deslaurier Custom Cabinets Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant recently visited Deslaurier Custom Cabinets in Renfrew to make a Community Futures Development Corporation – Renfrew County funding announcement. A total of $11,907, from the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario’s Eastern Ontario Development Program, was administered by CFDC for two projects — computer automated design training for new software, and server upgrades for critical-data storage. “The funding is basically about skills development and integrity of data,” said DCC purchasing manager Chris Havey. Later, Havey describes some of the technology in the Renfrew plant to local CFDC vice-president Darrel Ryan and Gallant, as DCC co-owners Denis Staples and Jim Deslaurier look on.

DAMAGE TO MAIL BOX POLICY A number of mail boxes were damaged by heavy slush that flew off the trucks/plows during snow removal operations on Friday, April 12, 2013, not by the snow plow itself. The Township’s mailbox policy calls for replacement if the mail box is struck by the snow plow. The Township is not responsible for damage incurred by flying snow or debris that are beyond the operator’s control.

Chantel Rudy welcomes seniors and others still living at home who need assistance to call her new business, Safe Haven Home Health Care.


Thanks to Chantel Rudy and her new business, Safe Haven Home Health Care, people who might otherwise be forced to move, can continue to live in the comfort of their own home. “I basically go into peopleʼs homes and assist them with everything they need,” Rudy said Rudy has operated her business since January. She had previously worked at Groves Park Lodge in Renfrew. “I just decided that a lot of people want to stay in their own homes, and need the help to do so.” Rudy said. “As long as they are healthy enough, they want to stay where they are comfortable.” She has about five clients right now and is available during days, evenings and weekends. “Basically, itʼs a 24-hour job,” she said, made

business,” she said. “They want the same person coming in, not someone different all the time,” Rudy said of her clients, adding that they gain a trust with the same person. Sheʼs not planning on hiring any staff at this time. Itʼs not just the elderly that Safe Haven Home Health Care provides service to. Respite care, post-hospital care, companion service, light house keeping, preparing meals and activities of daily living are services Rudy provides. Right now, Rudy plans to keep her office in her home at 26 Freamo Lane in Renfrew. That way, she is home more and doesnʼt have to hire a babysitter for her kids, she said.

In this season of rebirth, give the precious gift of life May 8 is just around the corner. For many, it is just another day in May. For some, it could be the difference between life and death. Itʼs been a rough new year for Canadian Blood Services (CBS) as donations are way down due to colds and influenzas that prevented regular donors from pitching in. But by booking your spot now for the Wednesday, May 8 clinic at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 148 hall in Renfrew, you could make a real difference in someone elseʼs life. April is Cancer Month, giving special depth to the posters that state: “This Poster Will Be Seen By 500 People. If That Many People Gave Blood, 100 Patients Could Receive Cancer Treatment.” Or your selfless donation could provide the five units needed by someone undergoing heart surgery, or perhaps save a car accident victim needing as many as 50 units to survive. Not quite ready to donate, but looking for another way to help?

How about a cash donation to a worthy cause? Back in January, The Economic Club of Canada announced support for the CBS campaign, For All Canadians, to establish a national public cord blood program for all Canadians in need of a stem cell match. Canada is the only G8 country that does not have such a program. A news release from the Economic Club of Canada said CBS is seeking to raise $12.5 million in community support by 2014 to get the stem cell bank up and running. Once established, it would be supported and maintained through funding from provincial and territorial governments. To learn more, visit the CBS website. Canadian Blood Services will be set up at the Legion from 2 to 5 p.m., then again from 6 to 7 p.m. You can book your appointment to save a life by visiting or phoning 1-888-236-6283 (1-888-2DONATE).

Shirley, Gene and a lady named Mae The wall of old albums is impressive –stretching across the room and marked with meticulous care. Country. Folk, Bluegrass. Easy listening. Rock. Iʼm here to take a photo of new Valley Heritage Radio operations manager Jason Marshall, so this backdrop seems fitting. Jason hands me a Bonanza Christmas album – Ben, Hoss, Little Joe and Adam Cartwright smiling holiday smiles. Iʼm fondly reminded of my grade-school lunch bucket with the Bonanza landscape painted across its tinny top. I reach into the rock section and pull out a Foreigner album. An equally good representation of an era gone by. But wait. Itʼs not enough. I feel compelled to grab one more random LP. After all, three is a special number, as any jeweller or florist will tell you. As I draw the album off the shelf, I stop. Itʼs Shirley Eikhartʼs debut album, a 1971 offering with a favourite song from my youth. It Takes Time spoke to my restless young spirit back in 1971 – one young Canadian girl speaking to another. Eikhart later went on to pen a Bonnie Riatt hit Let’s Give Them Something to Talk About. That old Eikhart album reminded me how much great Canadian music is out there; lost in a frantic shuffle of changing times and trends. From The Staccatosʼ It’s A Long Way Home to Mac Beattieʼs My Renfrew County Home –

this wall of music is more than old vinyl. It is our regionʼs heartbeat and heritage. The recent passing of Stompinʼ Tom Connors reminded us of that fact, but perhaps not enough. Luckily, Valley Heritage Radio is here to remind us, every day of our lives. Music is very much about memory; tiny time capsules that can make us feel the way we did way back when. I grew up to the sounds of Gordon Lightfoot, Ian Tyson, Hank Williams, Mac Beattie and Don Messerʼs Jubilee, where Gene MacLellan was a frequent guest, performing songs like Bidin’ My Time, The Call and Put Your Hand in the Hand . Fellow easterner Anne Murray would carry MacLellanʼs songs on to international fame but, for me, Snowbird will always be Geneʼs song and I favour his version; a masterful portrayal of love lost, Canadian-style. Rediscovering classic Canadian music is refreshing, like taking a spring stroll through

The Story of Renfrew by Heritage Renfrew is a beautiful book. A section titled The Newspapers is especially close to my heart, sprinkled with photos of dedicated newspaper people I worked beside in days gone by – Norm, Boyd, Kent and Elaine (Dick) Wilson, Harry Hinchley, D.W. McCuaig, Graham Johnston and Jerry Mahusky. One group photo shows the 1962 staff of The Renfrew Advance, which merged with The Renfrew Mercury in 1970. Among the 12 people in the photo is young Mae (McNevin) Pappin. Looking at that smile, I recall Mae standing at the old slantboards beside the printing press, trimming knife in hand as she pieced the paper together with delicate precision. She took great pride in her work, a pride rivalled only by her passion for the Toronto Maple Leafs. Mae passed away Friday, March 29, carrying with her the badge of her strong work ethic – 47 years employed at The Mercury.

Are events such as Miss Teen Ontario East still relevant?

A) Yes. They give young women selfconfidence and promote awareness of a variety of worthwhile charities.


B) No. Such contests are an outdated relic of chauvinistic thinking.


C) Yes. But make it a true beauty contest. Forget the talent and other aspects. D) No, unless an equivalent event is offered for males.

All aboard, Renfrew’s train to bankruptcy To the editor: Wake up, all concerned taxpaying citizens of Renfrew, and to those who pay no tax and others with the mindset – build it and they will come – obviously you donʼt care about the health of our town, other than yourselves, so read no further. People move to places like Renfrew because they like the small-town atmosphere (bigger is not better), case in point. Of late, in the Thursday, April 4, 2013 Renfrew Mercury, you were alarmed to have read the following Town of Renfrew employees on the Sunshine List earning yearly salaries in excess of $100,000. Those names included treasurer Keray OʼReilly ($122,449), development and works director Mike Asselin ($117,654), town clerk Kim Bulmer ($108,031), fire chief Guy Longtin ($114,562), fire captain Tim Hill ($115,176), fire lieutenant Dan Visneskie ($105,332) and fire captain Peter Whelan ($102,588). Renfrew cannot afford these salaries and, thanks to this mayor and council and previous mayors and councils (they just canʼt say no), our town of 8,000 has become the Irish sweepstakes for town employees and we, the taxpayers, are receiving very little value for services rendered and it must stop! Our streets are not paved in gold but rather, and in many areas the streets resemble 17th century cobblestone as they are in such disre-



pair, but salary pay increases for all town employees, 70 at present. The bottom line – the Town of Renfrew employees, fire department and the OPP are sucking the life out of our town and it is up to us, the concerned Renfrew taxpayers, to stop this abuse of the public purse. If not, we can expect plenty more of the same. To note: The new aerial ladder fire truck – $850,000 that this mayor and council approved will also be financed due to lack of funds and will likely cost us, the Renfrew taxpayer, well in excess of $1 million – another unnecessary expense, nor the need for a full-time fire department. How about Queenʼs Diamond Jubilee medals for all Renfrew taxpayers for all the years of abuse and disrespect suffered at the hands of that bunch at Renfrew Town Hall who obviously does not have our best interests at heart. Shame on this mayor and council again! Remember, October 2014, 19 months from now, will be election time in Renfrew once again. So get involved, motivated to run for the office and do your part to save our town. If you do not, take heed, the end is nigh and bankruptcy is imminent. Thanking you in advance, Callum Scott Concerned Taxpaying Citizen Renfrew

Great opportunity for Renfrew and area To the editor: I believe that there is a great economical opportunity about to take place over the next couple of years, that could have short, and long term impact on our local area. I donʼt think it will just fall in our laps, but we will get some spill off from it, in the short term, and we should work hard to take advantage of it in the long term. The federal government has made the decision, to relocate the National Defense Head-

quarters, to the old Nortel Complex in Kanata. In addition, the RCMP will be relocating out to the Barrhaven area. Both of these moves are obviously going to have an economic impact on the East end of Ottawa, and I understand and sympathize with that. However, we in the lower Ottawa Valley, have a great opportunity, to promote our area in the coming years and we must take advantage. I believe that all levels of gov-


ernments should be contemplating how to promote the Renfrew, Horton, Admaston, McNab-Braeside areas in the coming future. As I know from first-hand knowledge, the commute to Ottawa, is now much easier, than when I did it for many years as general manager of the Ottawa Air Traffic Control Facility.

Treat our Canadian flag with greater respect flags replaced or taken down and still the town garage on Lisgar Street flys a disgraceful, torn Canadian flag. If Renfrew cannot afford to replace torn or frayed Canadian Flags on town property then they should at least take them down.

This is very disrespectful to all proud Canadians, military personnel, and especially veterans. WO (Ret) Kerry Coulterman Renfrew


Relocation is part of the job, with the RCMP and Military, it would be in our collective best interestʼs, to consider starting to think about how to promote our area. There will be new transferʼs involved, and many will consider locating West of the city of Ottawa. We should be considering the pursuit of these people, and consider the impact this will have on us. You can rest assured that the communities of Arnprior and Carleton Place, will be doing their best, to attract as many as possible, into their communities. These positions are of the high end pay scale. They would be a welcome addition to all of our communities. Additional revenue to add to our already extremely good sports facilities. Pressure to double lane 417 into

Renfrew County. The building of new communities, and expansion of existing. Not to mention the expansion for local employment opportunities. We have a unique lifestyle, and way of life, in the lower Ottawa Valley, and the Mayors, Councillors, MPP, MP, must take advantage of this opportunity to get our collective foot in the door. There will be a tremendous opportunity for growth in all businessʼs and communities. Warden Emon and County Council, mayors, MPP Yakabuskie, MP Gallant.

Spring is one of the main peak seasons for ticks to emerge. Public Health Ontario has classified our region at moderate risk for Lyme Disease, as the tick population is increasing due to climate changes. The black-legged tick (aka the deer tick) is the carrier of Lyme Disease. As concerns are publicized regarding this disease, many donʼt realize that dogs are 50 per cent more likely to contract Lyme Disease than humans. Lyme Disease spreads when an infected deer tick takes a blood meal from a dog and transfers the bacteria, Borrelia Borgdorferi. Symptoms of the disease may not appear for two to six months, post bite. Common signs of infections include; lameness, fever, swollen joints, anorexia, kidney failure and behavioral changes. Diagnosis is provided through a simple blood test performed at your local veterinary clinic. Lyme Disease is not necessarily a curable disease but is symptomatically treatable if caught early enough. Preventative measures can be determined by reviewing the level of exposure to your dog such as: Do you reside near a heavily-wooded area? Commonly go for walks in long grassy locations? Previously found ticks on your dog? If you said yes to any of these, your dog is at risk. Tick control is available through topical products that provide protection against tick bites and Lyme vaccines are now offered at vet clinics. Simple tick checks are also a vital part of prevention. Starting from nose to tail, you are looking/feeling for any bumps along your dog. Be sure to check between toes, along the head, tail, under armpits, and behind ears. Sizes can vary from a pinhead to a small grape depending on how long the tick has been feeding. If you find a bump and think it is a tick, remove it right away! Avoid dousing the tick in alcohol or putting a match to it when attached to your dog; these methods donʼt work. The simplest way to remove a tick is by using a pair of tweezers. Grasp the tick as close to the skin surface as possible and pull the tick out with steady, even pressure. After removal, clean your dogʼs skin with soap and warm water and then kill the tick by submerging it in a liquid (rubbing alcohol or water). You are always welcome to visit your vet clinic for removal as well. Ideally, ticks should be removed as soon as possible. If a tick is removed within 24 hours of attachment, chances of Lyme Disease being transferred are significantly reduced. Ticks prefer warm, moist environments located in wooded, long grassy areas, under leaves or logs. Ticks will emerge during the months of late April, May, June, late August, September, and October. Your dog can be exposed to Lyme Disease in any location where ticks can be found. Speaking with your vet is a great idea to go over what preventative measures are suitable for your dog to remain Lyme Disease free.

I had a next door neighbour for many years until recently, who commuted from the Pinnacle to NDHQ in downtown Ottawa. With NDHQ now going to be only being 40 minutes from Renfrew, we are now on the radar. There is going to be approximately perhaps as many as 50,000 people going to be effected by these moves. I believe that most will stay in the location they are presently in and commute across Ottawa to their new locations in Ottawaʼs West end. Some will move no doubt. However, a great many of these positions, in a lot of cases are transient.

Town seeks building inspector Steve Newman

With Murray Gahanʼs impending retirement, the Town of Renfrew is looking for a new building inspector. “Itʼs going to be fairly difficult to recruit,” predicted development and works director Mike Asselin, calling the position invaluable to the department. “Theyʼre big shoes to fill,” said Asselin at councilʼs meeting March 25. Gahanʼs retirement date is June 28, 2013, but heʼll be entitled to departing in late May because of accumulated vacation time. A backgrounder provided to council indicates

So much more than recliners, I could hardly believe it.

there are no other town staff members qualified to perform the duties. Also, because building activity is busiest in the spring and summer, itʼs recommended staff move quickly to recruit a successor. Asselin explained the position also entails duties with waste management operations, and some work related to bylaw enforcement and town hall maintenance. Gahan joined the town as temporary building inspector in May 1983, but has worked fulltime hours since then. The town issued 72 building permits in 2011 and 92 in 2012. Itʼs expected 2013 may be very active, with two new subdivisions and some preliminary work on commercial proposals.

The first session will be held Thursday, May 30 at the Cobden Agricultural Hall and another Tuesday, June 4 in Westmeath. Both sessions will include an open house from 3 to 6 p.m. and public meeting from 7 to 9 p.m.

On April 10 about 40 residents attended a Whitewater Region Official Plan policy review steering committee meeting. Among the matters on the agenda was a copy of revised draft policies for Muskrat Lake, a highly-sensitive trout lake that has seen increased growth of algae blooms over the years. Those policies will be available for review at the May 30 and June 4 meetings.

Greater Madawaska public works manager Jamie Doering has recommended that the township accept summer hours for the roads department from the first Monday in May to the first Monday in September 2013. The department now works five eight-hour days. Doering asks that the summer hours consist of four 10-hour days from Monday to Thursday. It comes out to 40 hours either way. “I feel that productivity-wise and dollar-wise, I really believe that there is some money there that we can actually save in our operational budget,” Doering said. Gas consumed travelling to and from the work site is also saved without the Friday schedule, he added. Doering said heʼd report to council in the fall whether or not the summer hours were a success and if they should

be maintained in the future. Coun. Brian Hunt voiced concern of any Friday construction such as washouts that might crop up. Doering noted there would still be foremen on duty, himself included, to answer the call. “A number of municipalities already do this,” he added of the four-day summer work week. Coun. Glenda McKay wasnʼt against the idea, but wondered if staff hours could be broken up into Monday to Thursday, and Tuesday to Friday to maintain a daily presence. “That would still leave everybody on a four-day week, staggered so weʼd have coverage on a Friday,” Coun. McKay suggested. Because of staff size, Doering felt that wouldnʼt be possible. “I do have a little bit of concern about the office not being manned,” Coun. McKay added. She noted the im-

provements in productivity, cost and mileage, but said running into call-outs on the Fridays was her concern. “Thatʼs the only concern I have, is Friday coverage.” Mayor Peter Emon said the parties can determine which way to go on this for the next council meeting. “Taking in all the consideration, all the suggestions, if you want to go forward with this, or some change, bring it as a motion,” he said. BELL TOWER

Bell Mobility has completed a public consultation process, as established by Industry Canada to build a 90-metre communications tower at Lanark Road. To proceed with construction, Bell has asked Greater Madawaska to sign an agreement that the township has no concerns with the tower. “They are recom-

mending that council authorize the CAO (Allison Holtzhauer) to sign the concurrence agreement with Bell Mobility noting that the township is satisfied and agrees that Bell may commence with the tower construction,” land use planner Marko Cekic said. Coun. Bruno Kierczak asked Cekic how the tower will help Greater Madawaska. “It provides township residents with cell service as well as high speed Internet service,” he said. The motion on the agreement will be confirmed at councilʼs April 23 meeting. ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

Economic development advisory committee rep Byron Hermann met with Mayor Emon and CAO Holtzhauer to update what the 11-member committee has been doing since November 2011.

A tourism position statement was put together, Hermann said. “It is clear that tourism is an important part of our strategic plan. How can we better position ourselves in the current tourism market in our area?” Hermann said the committee has used the catch phrase, “Is there any place youʼd rather be?” to welcome people to the area. The committee also put together an action plan to improve visitors services. Different ways do to that include an interactive kiosk. “Itʼs currently being finalized as to how the kiosk will present itself in different formats throughout the township,” the Calabogie and Area Business Association (CABA) president said. This project was launched at a joint CABA and township press conference with MP Cheryl Gallant at The Fans in Calabogie

last year. An ad hoc events and festivals committee of community volunteers was also put together. Projects they worked with included Expo 150, Blues and Ribfest at Calabogie Peaks in 2011 and 2012, Bogie Blizzard 2012, Volunteer Appreciation Night and the Festival of the Senses. The committee also worked on communications in marketing, with the trails committee, improvement of the website, signage, and brochures to promote the area. Hermann said the Ottawa Valley Tourist Conference coming to Calabogie April 23 is also an important promotional tool. The committee also spent a lot of time on networking, he added. “The key to economic development is creating your network and being able to work with your partners,” Hermann said.

Seeking input on housing County of Renfrew

The County of Renfrew continues to seek input from residents of Renfrew County as it prepares a 10-year Housing and Homelessness Plan. The plan is intended to identify the range of housing challenges facing county residents and analyze the delivery of current housing and homelessness programs. More than 20 provincial housing and homelessness programs need to be consolidated to provide Ontario municipalities with flexibility to use resources more effectively and better serve the residents of the county. “Residents wishing to provide input into the plan have an opportunity to do so by answering the questions outlined in our on-line survey called County of Renfrew 10-Year Housing and Homelessness Plan, Assets and Issues Survey,” says Renfrew County Housing Corporation manager Carol Neill. The survey can be found at www. Input provided remains anonymous. The deadline to complete the survey is April 30. The plan will include priorities and outline strategies to improve access to adequate, suitable and affordable housing for families and individuals. 0418.R0022026462

chairman pleased with data Peter Clark

Admaston-Bromley Police Services Board chair Mike Quilty is pleased with data provided by the Renfrew OPP. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a pleasure to report that the township is a very law-abiding community that is supported by a regular police presence, thanks in part to our contract,â&#x20AC;? he said while addressing Admaston-Bromley council April 4. The billed 2012 policing costs, as submitted by the OPP and Financial Services Bureau to the townshipĘźs police services board, was $229,560 for salaries and beneďŹ ts. The estimated 2012 policing costs were $244,218. That left a difference of $14,658 for the township. The estimate received by the board for 2013 is $240,734, effective Jan. 1, 2013. The number of hours spent policing the township in most cases exceeded the monthly hours speciďŹ ed in the contract. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is at no additional cost to our taxpayers,â&#x20AC;? Quilty

pointed out. Contracted hours were 202.94 per month in 2012. The township received 663.72 hours over and above that. POLICE SERVICES BOARD UNDER BUDGET

The police services board operated within a budget of $7,550. Expenses were $6,379.29 which was $1,170.71 under budget. Board members receive $100 per meeting plus 46 cents per kilometre. The secretary is paid $13.33 per hour. This was increased to $13.73 and 50 cents per kilometre in November. The board paid for two buses to send Opeongo High School Grade 9 students to a bullying presentation by Dr. Tracy Vaillancourt at St. JosephĘźs Catholic High School in October 2012. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Apparently, that was very well received by the students with lots of positive comments,â&#x20AC;? Quilty said. Students that are being bullied or just need to talk can arrange to speak with an OPP of-

ďŹ cer at Opeongo High School about any problem they might have. Quilty and board vice-chair Brian Yuke attended a conference last April. Among the main points discussed was the rising cost of policing, which Quilty emphasized is provide-wide. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That is on everyoneĘźs radar screen right at the very top,â&#x20AC;? he said. Forums are underway to see how this might be adjusted. Admaston-Bromley paid out $7,560 in RIDE duty for 2012. That money is reimbursed by the province around May of the following year. The estimated RIDE grant for 2012-13 is $6,540.26. Funding of $1,672.20 was received from the auction of found articles by the OPP, accident reports, personal security checks and ďŹ nger printing fees in the township. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we have a wonderful relationship with the police services board and this council, and with Colin Slight and his staff,â&#x20AC;? Mayor Raye-Anne Briscoe said.

Okay from Ontario Trillium Foundation Admaston-Bromley has received the green light from the Ontario Trillium Foundation to re-allocate the remaining $2,958.63 of its grant to the townshipĘźs public library. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Trillium has said the ďŹ le is closed, the money is yours, go ahead and spend it, the issue is ďŹ nished,â&#x20AC;? Mayor RayeAnne Briscoe said at council April 4. â&#x20AC;&#x153;ThatĘźs good, and great for

straints, the township will need funding to allow this project to go ahead. â&#x20AC;&#x153;WeĘźve got our ďŹ ngers crossed and toes crossed on that one,â&#x20AC;? the mayor said. It is estimated 1,800 cars a day travel that route, and maybe 20 to 30 pedestrians and cyclists. That pedestriancyclist number will triple, Coun. Michael Donohue predicted.

Baby delivered in parking lot at Renfrew Victoria Hospital Like mother, like daughter Gemma Robillard Renfrew Victoria Hospital


Michelle Charron with husband Jason and baby Gracie.

Former minister joins Alzheimer Society staff A former Arnprior minister has joined the Alzheimer Society of Ottawa and Renfrew County as a program staff member in the Upper Ottawa Valley. Milton Fraser will serve Renfrew County out of the Pembroke office. The former minister at the Arnprior Presbyterian Church can be contacted through the toll-free Renfrew County phone number 1-888-4112067. The society also has Tracey

Liebig based in its Arnprior office. Fraser has more than 20 years of experience as a minister in a congregational setting. In addition to his role as a pastor, he was the ministerial representative on the Palliative Care Support Team at Arnprior Regional Health. Fraser has had significant experience in journeying with families as they live with dementia, and brings with him valuable experiences, knowledge and insight.

The move of the Pembroke will provide the Alzheimer Society with more space to serve families in Pembroke and the surrounding communities. To learn more about the Alzheimer Societyʼs programs in Renfrew County, contact Fraser or Liebig at info@, or by phone. Visit for a wealth of information on dementia, resources for familie, and available Alzheimer Society programs in Ottawa and Renfrew County.

A Renfrew couple is still trying to process the speedy arrival of the newest addition to their family – and the shocking similarities to her motherʼs entrance into the world. Michelle Charron and her husband Jason live just a few kilometres away from Renfrew Victoria Hospital, but on the evening of April 2, 2013, their daughter couldnʼt wait long enough to be in the comfort of the obstetrical unit on the second floor. She couldnʼt even wait to get in the building. In a panic, Jason got out of their minivan and ran into the emergency entrance to grab a wheelchair for his wife, and when he returned his wife told him the wheelchair wonʼt be necessary because the baby was ready to come out. “I didnʼt think to park at the door,” says Jason, but he did see Dr. Greg Caza and two EMTs when he went to fetch the wheelchair and alerted

them to the make-shift delivery room in his vehicle. With the help of Dr. Caza, the EMTs and two nurses, the baby was born right in the RVH parking lot. Danette Heffern was the obstetrical nurse on duty that evening and says she ran as swiftly as she could down from the second floor to the parking lot after getting the call. “I got there just in time to collect the baby,” she laughs. “The staff was awesome too,” adds Jason. Many of them offered up name suggestions to the family – Carlotta, Chrysler, and Parker, to name a few – but they have named their beautiful little bundle of pink Gracie. “She already has one really great story to tell people,” says Michelle. The mom laughs at her baby girlʼs antics as Michelle did the exact same thing – there was a little less room for the birth in the front of her parentsʼ pickup truck. “Itʼs really crazy.” Michelle really didnʼt expect to go into labour early. She wasnʼt due until April 7, and each of her previous preg-

nancies arrived right on time. Her water had broken at home around 7 p.m. while they waited for Jasonʼs parents to come over to watch their two sons – Colin, 5, and Matthew, 3. When the grandparents arrived, Michelle got up and immediately felt the urge to push. She knew they had to get to the hospital as quickly as possible. But it still wasnʼt fast enough. Their beautiful baby girl was born at 9:55 p.m. and weighed 7 lbs., 7 oz. Heffern says she has had a few mothers not make it up to the Obstetrical Unit for delivery in the past, but they usually make it into the Emergency Department. “We had limited equipment and we were in the dark.” “It certainly was exciting, and situations like this keep us on our toes!” sums up Heffern. Although it may have been a bit frantic, the delivery went very smoothly “and the baby is perfectly healthy,” notes her proud daddy.


Renfrew Fire Department to Inspect Smoke Alarms

Residents who do not have a smoke alarm installed on each floor will be left with a temporary smoke alarm and given 24 hours to install a permanent one on each story. The fire department will return after the 24 hours period to ensure that the smoke alarms required have been installed. Those that fail to install the required smoke alarms may face a hefty fine. During the smoke alarm inspection program, local firefighters will fan out through the area, visiting residents in Renfrew. Residents who wish to schedule a home visit should call the station at 613-432-2811.


As part of a community-wide fire prevention effort, firefighters from Renfrew Fire Department will visit local residents starting this spring to perform free smoke alarm inspections. Were required, installation of smoke alarms and battery replacement will be available at a reasonable cost from the fire department.

By participating in this community smoke alarm inspection program, the Renfrew Fire Department is helping to ensure that local residents are safer in their homes.

Smoke Detectors Save Lives.


A working smoke alarm less than 10 years from the manufacture date is required on every level of your home.

Fresh, quality food from the end of the rainbow Rainbow Heritage Garden strives to excel in local food industry Steve Newman

As with all new business ventures, Kylah Dobson and Zach Loeks didnʼt know how Rainbow Heritage Garden was going to turn out, but six years later theyʼre not complaining. As Concordia University students they got married in 2007, the same year they took their first steps with the business. The first year, she recalls, “We had access to land so we thought, ʻWhat the heck, letʼs give it a whirl.ʼ We did it again the next year and we just havenʼt stopped. “Itʼs just something we came to naturally, and have loved along the way. We started out as university sweethearts, and got married and now we have kids, and weʼve been doing it for seven years, and we hope to be doing it for another 37.” They began Rainbow Heritage Garden on a quarter acre of land owned by her dad, Bob Dobson. Later, in 2010, they bought 50 acres from him, and now are next-door neighbours. “This land has been in our family for seven generations,” says Kylah, whose family farmers have included her grandfather Harold Dobson, a market gardener who sold at the Pembroke Farmers Market for years, and great-grandfather William Dobson.

So far, so good, as the business continues to expand for Kylah, who grew up near Cobden, and Zach, who was raised in New Mexico. They live off-grid with their youngsters, three-year-old Dayvah and six-month-old Rainah in Whitewater Region Township, where they now grow more than 200 varieties of vegetables and sell their produce at the Carp Farmers Market and through summerfall season sales of community supported agriculture (CSA) shares. They sold about 15 CSA shares their first season, with most renewing for a second season. Last season, Rainbow Heritage sold 85 shares to customers who pick up weekly or biweekly. Each share consists of seven to 11 separate vegetable items (e.g., a bunch or carrots or a pint of cherry tomatoes) that were harvested within the previous 24 hours at Rainbow Heritage. Those shares were available for pickup Wednesday afternoon in Pembroke and at the farm in 2012. This season, new pickups are being added for Renfrew and Petawawa. “Basically, you pay for a share in the harvest,” says Kylah. “Instead of having to take a loan out at the beginning of every season, and paying interest on that, we are making some

money in the spring, when we incur most of our costs, when weʼre purchasing our seeds, our row cover and out potting mix.” “The advantage for the shareholders is that they know their farmer,” says Kylah. “In the past 50 years a huge change has happened in the food industry.” She says the farmer has become faceless and, as a result, farmer has become faceless and “paid the price, for lowerquality food. So our goal is to know every single one of our customers. And to provide them with a superior product.” “I like that weʼre a family farm,” says Zach. “A family farm is something that stands for a certain kind of care.” He says a family farm also represents the opportunity to more than grow fruits and vegetables. Thereʼs also the chance to leave the land in better shape tomorrow than today, by doing things like growing crop windbreakers from native species. Enthusiastic about what their customers receive, she also exudes positive energy about the future. Her dad Bob has had a major and positive impact on the young coupleʼs business approach. “He has incorporated a lot of different environmental projects into his farming operation that have contributed to the long-term environmental and financial sustainability of his operation,” says Kylah of her dad, who sells organic, grass-fed beef, as well as pastured poultry and Native elderberry products. Her dad has been at the Carp Farmers Market for 10 years after starting with the help of Kylah, who did the marketing, including development of his website. Looking back, she says her dad didnʼt push her to get involved in the food-production industry. “He didnʼt encourage or discourage, which in retrospect is what I would like to do with my children … to expose them to farming and the possibilities of farming and farm life,” says Kylah. “One thing I do share with him (my dad) is that we can produce a lot of food locally. We can push the barriers of weather and climate … therefore there is a lot that people can eat locally. There is a lot of potential. We think, to sustain our diet, we need to be importing from all over the world, but really there is so much diversity in the foods we can grow and eat locally. Thatʼs


Zach Loeks and Kylah Dobson with one of their daughters, Dayvah, are all smiles at the Carp Farmers Market. why Zach and I are doing this.

Heritage Radio gears up for fundraising drive lucy,

His Masterʼs Voice – the iconic image of terrier Nipper looking into an Edison Bell phonograph – is a famous image associated with heritage music worldwide. In Renfrew County, a new image has emerged as the face of heritage music – the turquoise hat of CJHR Valley Heritage Radio. The not-for-profit radio station at 98.7 FM kicks off its annual fundraising campaign tomorrow – 10 days featuring oldcountry, fiddle and gospel nights, a radiothon, and a Round-up Dance Sunday, April 28 at the Renfrew Armouries. And there will be a new face at this yearʼs party – that of new station manager, Jason Marshall. Itʼs only fitting that Marshall finds himself sitting in his new office, listening to Mac Beattieʼs This Ottawa Valley of Mine. Because this is a homecoming of sorts for the White Lake man who has spent his entire working life in the media. After falling victim to downsizing in the newspaper business, Marshall was directed by his brother to a job advertisement identifying knowledge and understanding of Ottawa Valley culture as an asset. “I thought, you know, this might be right up my alley,” Marshall says. “I was really excited. It means a lot to me to be home, back in the Valley, because itʼs a special place to be.” While the station has a handful of talented paid on-air personalities, the stationʼs real strength is its strong team of volunteers. “There are 100-plus volunteers from all over the Valley and the Pontiac that keep this place running and that keep us out in the public eye,” Marshall says. And out in public is where Marshall is most comfortable. Early in his new job he spent time at the Ottawa Valley Farm Show, then joined the St. Patrickʼs parade in Douglas that he described as “fabulous.” Marshall says he has always favoured community newspapers because theyʼre more in touch with their communities and more close-knit. He has found the same spirit at Valley Heritage Radio. “When you come here itʼs like being part of a big family,” he says. “I thought it would be a big transition,” he says of the switch from print to radio. But not so. “The way you get the message out is different – one is spoken and one is written –

but what doesnʼt change is the community and being involved in the community,” he says. “Weʼre here to educate and to entertain but weʼre also here to help. Weʼre part of the community, and thatʼs what I love.” That and the music. “There isnʼt a day goes by that I donʼt think, holy smokes, I havenʼt heard that song in a long time.” The memories are fond ones, often rooted in what some might call his parentsʼ music. But even the ʻnewerʼ 1970s songs are now 40 years old and part of another generationʼs rich musical heritage. Marshall also enjoys that he can be driving home and hear Kyle Felhaver from White Lake, then someone from Pembroke, then someone from Eganville. “Weʼre here to be able to help and cultivate local talent, too,” he says. He is especially proud of the stationʼs commitment to local and live music, best displayed through its Live Kitchen Party Saturdays from 1 to 2 p.m. on the stationʼs Thomas Cavanagh Construction stage. In fact, major renovations are underway to make the station on Burnstown Road in Horton Township even more user-friendy and accessible for public gatherings. “I love it because no matter whatever your taste and whatever your flavour in music, Valley Heritage Radio has it,” Marshall says. And heʼs not kidding. The station boasts an impressive wall of albums, eight-tracks, cassettes and CDs that caught his immediate attention. “It just blew my mind and I asked, how many songs do we have here?” He learned that while commercial stations generally carry a library of 1,000 to 2,000 songs, Valley Heritage Radio has about 50,000. Equally impressive are the people spinning those tunes. “The volunteers who come in are just so passionate about the music,” says Marshall of the volunteer deejays. “Where else can you find old country, fiddle, easy listening, a little bit of rock, 50/60s rock, blues, bluegrass? Whatever your taste in music, you can find it on the dial at 98.7 FM,” he says, The station is a place where the public is welcomed to drop by and visit, and song requests are common. “What the people in this community want dictates what we have on the air. When all the dust settles, the most important thing is the music that weʼre playing,” he says.

As for the stationʼs appeal, Marshall says its name explains it best. “Right in the name of the station – Valley Heritage – are two things that are so important to the people of the Ottawa Valley,” he says. The first is pride in home, proclaiming, “Iʼm an Ottawa Valley person.ʼ The second is pride in heritage, exemplified in so much of its programming, like its Saturday morning Kaszebe offering. And thanks to technology, anyone with a computer can listen to Heritage Radio live online from anywhere in the world. In fact, listeners have been tracked tuning in from as far away as the Phillipines. The station also has a very vibrant Facebook site. “Thereʼs potential there to grow it,” Marshall says of social media and the stationʼs dedicated listenership. The station has more than 1,800 members and maintaining that support is vital to the stationʼs very existence. Thus the importance of its 10-day fundraising drive that starts tomorrow (April 19). And Marshall couldnʼt be happier to be part of the team behind that effort. “For me, personally, itʼs such a perfect fit,” says Marshall of his new job. “Our whole focus is on community; thatʼs the exciting part about it. Iʼm so at the right place for me, at the right time.” The stationʼs fundraising campaign wraps up with a Round-up Dance Sunday, April 28 from 1 to 7 p.m. at the Renfrew Armouries. The six-hour showcase will feature Douglas Connection, Dennis Harrington and Heritage Country, The Countrymen, and a tribute to Stompinʼ Tom Connors by Garry Patrois. The doors open 12 noon. Tickets are $15 for non-members and $12 for members and can be purchased at the radio station and at the door. Light lunch will be served. For more information, call 613-432-9873 or 1-888-532-9870. Heritage Radio opened its doors in 2007, and is governed by a volunteer board of directors comprised of president Denzil Ferguson, vice-president Fay Kolpin, secretary Jacqueline Asselin, treasurer Leo Coulas, and directors Anita Schubrink, Dennis Harrington, Wayne Venne, Bob Johnston, Guy Jamieson and Charlie Kitts. The stationʼs daytime programming includes Andrew Cartwright 6 to 10 a.m., followed by Dai Bassett easy-listening music 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., and Cruise Control with Al Cruise 3 to 6 p.m. Check out the stationʼs website at for evening and weekend programming..

Calabogie Blues & Ribfest gets Celebrate Ontario grant County of Renfrew

Thanks to the tremendous support of the Province of Ontarioʼs Celebrate Ontario Program, Greater Madawaska Township is pleased to announce that the third annual Class Axe Guitars Calabogie Blues & Ribfest will be showcasing some of the finest blues music found anywhere in North America. The Township of Greater Madawaska received a grant from the Ministry of Tourismʼs Celebrate Ontario Program, and these funds will help not only to secure some of the top blues performers, but also help attract a greater audience to the township. The Class Axe Guitars Calabogie Blues & Ribfest will be held the weekend of Aug. 16 to 18 at the Calabogie Peaks Resort. Celebrate Ontario Grants help new and existing Ontario festivals and events enhance their programs, activities and services. This support helps grow tourism in the province by making it easier for event organizers to offer new and improved experiences that will attract more tourists and increase visitor spending. “The Wynne government is proud to support local festivals and events like the Calabogie Blues & Ribfest,” said Michael Chan, Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport. “Through Celebrate Ontario we are helping festivals and events attract broader audiences, increase visitor spending and boost local economies – ultimately creating jobs in the Greater Madawaska Township and across our great province.” Greater Madawaska Mayor Peter Emon acknowledged the support of the business community within the township. “Our township has partnered with Calabogie Peaks Resort and many other local businesses to help deliver one of the biggest festivals in Eastern Ontario. “The Class Axe Guitars Calabogie Blues & Ribfest is a great way for tourists to discover the many oppor-

tunities available in our region and it allows our business community to benefit from the many economic development spinoffs from this event.” Paul Murphy, president of Calabogie Peaks Resort, is looking forward to welcoming returning and new visitors to the area. “The natural amphitheatre created by the mountain makes Calabogie an ideal festival location,” said Murphy.

“Calabogie Peaks hosts thousands of festival guests inside a beautiful environment bounded by Calabogie Lake, the mountain and endless acres of pristine nature. Very few festivals offer this unique combination of blues music, resort amenities and recreation experiences.” Ed Torres, CEO of Torres Media and 101.9 DAWG FM in Ottawa, was excited about returning to Calabogie

with this ever-growing event. “We are very excited to have the support of Celebrate Ontario. Canadian blues legend Colin James will be headlining this yearʼs event, and this was only made possible through the generous support of Celebrate Ontario. The Class Axe Guitars Calabogie Blues & Ribfest is a partnership between Class Axe Guitars, Calabogie Peaks Resort, 101.9 DAWG FM and

Greater Madawaska Township. In 2012, over 13,000 attended the festival, and organizers are expecting even bigger crowd this year. In addition to the live blues music and Rib Grillers, there is an interactive Kidz Zone, overnight camping, the Calabogie Peaks Chairlift, a blues workshop and many other activities. Advance tickets are available at

Country Opry show and dance May 11-12 A Country Opry show and dance hits the stage at the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre in Renfrew May 11 and 12.

If a person or public body does not make oral submissions at a public meeting, or make written submissions to the Township of McNab/ Braeside before the proposed Official Plan amendment is adopted by the Township of McNab/Braeside, the person or public body may not be added as a party to the hearing of an appeal before the Ontario Municipal Board unless, in the opinion of the Board, there are reasonable grounds to add the person or the public body as a party. If you wish to be notified of the decision or for further information regarding the adoption or the refusal of the requested amendment to the Official Plan; a written request must be submitted to: Charles Cheesman, Manager of Planning Services, Development and Property Department, County of Renfrew, 9 International Drive, PEMBROKE, ON K8A 6W5 (613) 735-3204 or Toll Free 1-800-273-0183 Proposed Zoning By-Law Amendment Purpose and Effect of the Zoning By-law Amendment - Approximately 30 Ha (74 ac) of the Miller property is zoned Extractive Industrial (EM) and licensed for extraction as quarry. The proposed Zoning By-Law Amendment is to permit the expansion of the licensed area of the existing quarry and to permit an asphalt manufacturing plant as an additional use on a specific portion of the property. The proposed amendment affects only the lands beyond the existing licence and EM zone. This is about 103 Ha (254 acre) of the total Miller property. The proposed zoning amendment would rezone the property from Extractive Industrial Reserve (EMR) to Extractive Industrial (EM), Extractive Industrial-Exception One (EM-E1) and Extractive Industrial Reserve-Exception One (EMR-E1). The proposed EM Zone will permit an expansion of the existing quarry in an expanded area of approximately 79 Ha (195 ac) hectares of land. The EM-E1 Zone will permit an asphalt manufacturing plant on approximately 4.5 Ha (11 ac) of the expanded quarry. The proposed EMRE1 Zone will limit approximately 24 Ha (59 ac) of the property to the conservation of wildlife in natural conditions. If a person or public body does not make oral submissions at a public meeting or make written submissions to the Township of McNab/ Braeside before the by-law is passed, the person or public body is not entitled to appeal the decision of the Township of McNab/Braeside, to the Ontario Municipal Board. If a person or public body does not make oral submissions at a public meeting, or make written submissions to the Township of McNab/ Braeside before the by-law is passed, the person or public body may not be added as a party to the hearing of an appeal before the Ontario Municipal Board unless, in the opinion of the Board, there are reasonable grounds to do so.

Diabetic marathoner encourages others to hike for hospice Steve Newman

Technically speaking, at age 67 Hughie Nolan is no spring chicken. But donʼt tell him that. Having run his first 26-mile foot race at age 60, Nolan hopes to complete the eighth marathon of his relatively short-lived marathon career on June 2. “I started running marathons all because I was diabetic. I wanted to raise money for diabetes,” said Nolan, whose preparation for the worldʼs highest-altitude marathon will include his participation in the seventh annual Hike for Hospice May 5. He has been named the lead hiker for the event that serves each year as the major fundraiser for Hospice Renfrew, which opened in 2008. The local hospice provides a compassionate and comfortable place for people with terminal illnesses to spend their final days. The dying and their families are not charged a penny, but the hospice must fundraise to pay for about 50 per cent of its annual operating expenses. Nolan, who owns Stardust Upholstery, says he regularly hears comments about how it costs people to spend their final days at Hospice Renfrew. But thatʼs not so, and Nolan, as this yearʼs lead hiker in the Hike for Hospice, wants the community at large to know that. Thus, the Hike for Hospice, Hoot for Hospice and Hospice Golf Classic are pivotal fundraisers, in ongoing efforts to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars each year. “The reality,” says Hospice Renfrew chairman Karl Murphy, “is the hospice couldnʼt operate without the support of the community, and particularly people like Hughie who raise dollars and raise awareness.” For the first six editions of Hike for Hospice, more than $200,000 has been raised, including about $53,000 last year. “The money stays in Ren-

frew to pay for staff and hospice operations,” says Hospice Renfrew chairperson Connie Legg. So why not take a threekilometre hike, walk or run on May 5, from the Hike for Hospice start line next to the Renfrew Presbyterian Church, says Legg. Registration starts at 1 p.m., while the hike begins at 2 p.m. You can even bring your dogs, as long as theyʼre leashed. The course runs down the millennium trail to Ma-TeWay Park, then returns via Opeongo Road. “I keep saying itʼs a wonderful opportunity to get out and get some exercise and fresh air and support a wonderful cause,” says Legg. There are also a few incentives to participate, like the knowledge youʼre helping pay the bill for important end-oflife health care or that you could win a 51-inch Samsung Plasma television. Every participant is provided with one ticket for the draw, sponsored by Al Utronkiʼs Appliances and TV Centre, but extra tickets are given for every additional $100 raised. PLEDGE FORMS

Pledge forms for the hike are at the Renfrew Royal Bank or by downloading from www. or Tax receipts are provided for donations of $20 or more. The theme of this yearʼs Hike for Hospice is It Takes A Team. Organizers are asking pledge forms be turned into the Royal Bank, starting Wednesday, April 24, or at Hike for Hospice registration. In volunteering his time, Nolan says he hopes his marathon efforts increase awareness and funds for Hospice Renfrew. Those efforts will include his request for pledges for a May 11 five-km run in Calabogie. All money raised, through pledge forms available at Stardust Upholstery, Dr. Don Kempʼs office at 278

The official name of the Mount Everest event that Nolan is running May 29 is Tenzing-Hillary Everest Marathon. The event honours mountaineer-guide Tenzing Norgay and Edmund Hillary who became the worldʼs first to reach the peak of the worldʼs highest mountain on May 29, 1953. “We consider the marathon a most fitting tribute to these two great men-icons of adventurous souls in the annals of human history and civilization,” says the marathon website. The first edition was held in 2003, while this yearʼs marks the 60th anniversary of Hillaryʼs ascent of Mount Everest. The race begins at the base camp at 5,356 metres (or 17,598 feet), while the 26-miler concludes at Namche Bazaar, at 3,446 metres (or 11,306 feet). The challenge will be the physical severity and the corresponding need for more insulin, says Nolan. “If I do it under 10 hours, Iʼll be happy,” says Nolan.


Hugh Nolan, centre, is going to have a physically active spring. He’s not only the lead hiker for the May 2013 Hike for Hospice, but he’s also taking this flag to next month’s Tenzing-Hillary Everest Marathon that starts on the world’s highest mountain. Also waving the flag in the buildup to the hospice’s major fundraiser of the year are Hospice Renfrew’s board chairman Karl Murphy and fundraising chair Jo-Anne Dowdall-Brown.

Argyle, Valley Heritage Radio, Nolanʼs Grocery Store and Jim New Pre-Owned, will go to Hospice Renfrew. Nolan says significant donors will also receive a photo taken at the Mount Everest base camp in May with himself and the Hospice Renfrew flag. Each significant donor, he says, will receive a framed photo. Knowing several families whose loved ones who have spent their last days at Hospice Renfrew, Nolan says the cause is a worthy one. “Iʼve been pretty blessed in my life, so if I canʼt give back to the community thereʼs something wrong,” says Nolan. “And I may have to use this facility some day.” Nolan stresses that any pledges raised for him, for the May hikes or runs in Renfrew and Calabogie, will go to the hospice.

McGrimmon’s has a firm Hold on Renfrew Men’s Hockey League title Peter Clark

Nobody can find the Renfrew Menʼs Hockey League championship trophy. If it even exists, McGrimmon Holdings would be the place to send it. For the fourth consecutive year, the McGrimmon dynastic continued at the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre. A 4-1 win over Renfrew Pizzeria April 9 locked up the 2013 title. The three previous league crowns for the team all came as Kelly Homes. MCGRIMMON’S 4, PIZZERIA 1

McGrimmonʼs didnʼt lose the entire regular season, but dropped one game in all three playoff series. But that didnʼt allow them to stray too far off course. They were quick to bounce back to win the next game, and so they did again last Tuesday night. After dropping the previous game 4-0 to Ren-

frew Pizzeria – which narrowed the gap to 2-1 in games in the best-of-five series – McGrimmonʼs answered with a convincing triumph of their own. Mike Newberry had two goals to steer the McGrimmonʼs attack. One came even strength and the other on a powerplay. Kip Mulvihill and Travis Hiderman tabbed singles. Jimmy MacMillan broke Chris Osborneʼs shutout bid with just 1:07 remaining in the game. Newberry shot McGrimmonʼs into a 1-0 lead in the opening stanza of game four. Mulvihill counted the backbreaker when he scored shorthanded midway through the middle frame. Newberry and Hiderman upped the ante to 4-0 with goals in the third period. Osborne faced 18 shots before MacMillan solved the McGrimmon goaltender. Jon Rousselle faced 24 shots in the Pizzeria goalcrease. Other than the 4-0 win in game three, Pizzeria was held to one goal in each game, by Osborne twice, and by Steve Bowes in the opening game of the series.


McGrimmon Holdings captured the Renfrew Men’s Hockey League title for a fourth consecutive year April 9 at the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre. In front, from left are Jody Kelly, Chad Miller, Chris Osborne, Greg Gould and Chad Mullen; and standing, Derek McGrimmon, Travis Hiderman, Kip Mulvihill, Mark Valliquette and Mike Newberry.

scorers with 14 points. The second game was a re-match of last yearʼs finalists, Reunions and Frances/Lemke Co-operators. The Co-operators were well on their way to victory, holding a 21-13 lead early in the second half. Frances/Lemke went on a dry spell and soon trailed the Reunions 25-21.

Renfrew County cyclists invited to form new club Ish Theilheimer Renfrew County Cycling Club

A group of area cyclists is forming a club to promote their sport and encourage safe cycling. There will be an organizing meeting of a proposed Renfrew County Cycling Club (RCCC) at 6:30 in the restaurant at Sands on Golden Lake, Thursday, April 18, at 6:30 p.m. The objective is to see if there is enough interest and commitment to start an association. Bike clubs are common in areas where cycling is a well-established sport. With the growing popularity of cycling everywhere, including Renfrew County, local riders felt it was time to get organized. For example, they would like to hold regular, organized group rides to promote the sport to new riders, provide riders with opportunities to socialize on two wheels, see new territory, and learn from more experienced riders. They hope to collect and distribute cycle

touring information with printed and online maps showing people the best bike routes and rating them according to road and bike type, difficulty, scenery and other factors. Road safety is another key objective of the club. Most local roads do not have bike lanes, and some are more dangerous than others for riders. “Most local drivers are quite courteous, but they are unaccustomed to cyclists and unaware of the basic rules and practices that can prevent tragedies,” says Killaloe school teacher Kathy Eisner. “A little public education would go a long way in terms of raising safety awareness among both drivers and cyclists.” Organizers hope forming a club will lead to more cycle tourism in Renfrew County. “Cycling is good for the health of us locals,” says Chris Hinsperger, who lives in Eganville and owns the Bonnechere Caves . “As an entrepreneur in tourism development I would be negligent if I didnʼt

36 The Renfrew Mercury EMC - Thursday, April 18, 2013

say that having cyclists come to our area to share our roads with us is good for the economic health of Renfrew County.” They believe that the cycling and scenery in Renfrew County compares favourably with anywhere in Canada and would draw thousands of tourists to the area. “Iʼll get on a plane and spend lots of money to go cycle in a place half as nice as the Ottawa Valley,” says Stone Fence Theatreʼs producer, Ish Theilheimer, of Golden Lake. “Itʼs a cyclistʼs paradise, and we shouldnʼt be keeping this a secret.” With a variety of terrain and a lot of quiet countryside, there are many local roads that are perfect for cyclists of any level. The club members hope to encourage local businesses to see the opportunities for them in being bikefriendly and advertising this publicly. Anyone interested can join the meeting on April 18 or visit the Renfrew County Cycling Facebook group.

Now our Government will proceed with the selection and appointment of an FLL, who will exercise national leadership to strengthen the financial literacy of all Canadians. The FLL’s mandate will be to collaborate and coordinate activities with stakeholders to contribute to and support initiatives that strengthen the financial literacy of Canadians. The Succession to the Throne Act will provide Parliament’s assent to changes being made to the laws of Royal succession that will ensure the equal status of female and male heirs and that will allow heirs to marry an individual of any faith.

A new, more comprehensive guide and a new web tool to help newcomers settle and integrate in Canada was published recently. It hadn’t been revamped since it was first introduced in 1997. The guide features practical information on many different topics including how to access language classes, basic information about Canada’s education system, laws and the justice system, and the labour market.

Financial decision-making is highly complex due to the variety of financial services and tools currently available to Canadian families. It is important to have access to clear and transparent information to make informed financial decisions.

St. Lawrence Islands National Park has been renamed Thousand Islands National Park of Canada. The change allows for more effective advertising and will help people better identify where the park is located. It will attract more national and international travelers to the area, which will boost the local economy. The efforts of Leeds-Grenville M.P. Gord Brown, who says the name change movement was not new, led the effort to make this possible. It was recognized in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s that the name should be changed to better reflect the park’s location.



Cyclists Val Hinsperger, Adam Fox and Ron Fox take a break at Foymount in last summer’s Tour de Bonnechere, an annual participatory event that draws cyclists from all over Ontario. Although some local cycling can be this challenging, the county features many prime cycling routes with mild terrain and quiet, hard-topped rural roads.

First Nation community members called for enhanced financial accountability and transparency. The legislation will ensure community members have access to basic financial information such as audited financial statements, and the salaries and expenses of chief and council.

Sheila Windle was top scorer with 14 points in the game for the Co-operators. Mae Donohue countered with 13 for the Reunions. The Co-operators appeared to run out of

gas in the second game of their doubleheader. They held the advantage throughout the first half but, as the game wore on, they werenʼt able to keep pace with the Bananas. On the strength of Lisa Blocklandʼs inside

play and 17 points, the Bananas won 35-29. Sheila Windle scored nine of her 17 points from beyond the arc. Games are played on Monday and Wednesday evenings, plus the occasional Tuesday at Renfrew Collegiate.

(3"/%306/%4 After years of studying and gaining knowledge in the field, highly qualified nursing students are choosing placement at RVH to establish their careers as health care professionals. Six Algonquin College nursing students spent the day in Renfrew recently as part of an orientation day for preceptorship at RVH. They began with orientation and a tour of their respective departments for the next three months and then they visited our physiotherapy department for review of safe patient lifts and transfers, and with Kelly Hebert, RVH’s Health, Safety and Infection Control Coordinator. The students are about to begin placement at RVH to complete the final component of their nursing education. Upon graduating, they can apply for the opportunity to put their formal education and training into practice with the help of the Nursing Graduate Guarantee. The initiative is offered through the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care to provide links between new graduates and potential employers.

The program is managed through the Health Force Ontario (HFO) portal by Anna James, RVH’s HR Coordinator. Last year, RVH had two registered nurses and two registered practical nurses participating in the initiative: Amy Madigan, Amelia Daigle, Collins Ferguson and Janelle Martin. Madigan, Daigle and Martin were all mentored between the active care unit and the complex continuing care unit and Ferguson was mentored between the active care unit and the ER department, notes Jessica Gilbert, Clinical Nurse Manager of the Acute Care Program at RVH. “The HFO New Graduate Initiative allows for novice nurses to work with a mentor, on a full-time basis for a time period of about six months. The novice nurses have the opportunity to become autonomous in their practice, but under the guidance of an experienced mentor. The nurses who have been involved in the mentorship have all grown in their practice. The mentors have done an excellent job of helping to shape the future of nursing at RVH,” says Gilbert.

It was a pretty good week for McGrimmonʼs Holdings in the hockey world. McGrimmonʼs captured its fourth consecutive Renfrew Menʼs Hockey League championship last Tuesday (April 9). On the weekend, they hit the winnerʼs circle again, claiming top honours and $500 prize money in the final tournament of the 2012-13 season at the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre. McGrimmonʼs downed Sudbury 4-1 to claim the Open Division title for a second straight year. Milowen edged Pitt Contracting 4-3 to take the Recreation Division crown. Mike Newberry broke a scoreless deadlock with his first of two goals 1:18 into the second period, and McGrimmonʼs never looked back. Denver Mullen and Kelly Summers added singles in support of goaltender Chris Osborne. Jamie Cobus narrowed the deficit to 2-1 with a Sudbury marker early in the final stanza, but that was as close as they would get. Goals from Summers and Newberry 53 seconds apart three minutes later padded the McGrimmonʼs advantage. McGrimmonʼs reached the semifinal on the strength of a quick overtime triumph over Cybulski Sheet Metal. Scott Kohoko roofed a shot just

Enhancing programs at RCI There are some exciting new innovations happening at Renfrew Collegiate Institute. Though all of our classrooms have Smartboards and our grade 7 to 10 students have netbooks, now some of our classrooms are introducing new technological learning aids. I-Pads are being distributed to classrooms and, through easy setup, teachers are going to be able to use iPads as a learning tool in their classes. Students will be able to use the iPads in specific classes to take notes, do assignments and

research for projects and papers. These iPads are centrally synched together to eliminate the ability for games to be downloaded and they will be solely used for educational purposes. Not only will this reduce the time it takes to copy notes and do assignments. It will also increase the time teachers can spend with kids after a lesson to further learning and help students who need that extra little push up the hill to success. Furthermore, not only will this program be advantageous

JOE STEELE Raider Review

to students and teachers, it will also take the financial burden off of parents to purchase these devices for their kids, because they are available for free use at school. As the program moves along, pending teacherʼs approval, some students who do not possess the means to continue their work at home will be able to bring an iPad home as well. Lastly, this ap-

proach is not only benefiting everyone involved, it is also benefiting the environment because there will be less paper needed by students. As well as these technological innovations happening at RCI, next year the high school is offering a social justice course. This course will provide students with opportunities to develop leadership skills, and to work with com-

munity organizations to battle social injustices in our society. Studied will be developing their skills as active citizens and be able to identify social justice issues in their local and global communities. These are just two of many exciting program enhancements planned for next year, and two of the reasons the future of education at RCI is looking bright!

Our Lady of Fatima

Of all of the musicals McSheffery has helped put together, some scenes and moments stand out. His favourite scenes to watch are usually death scenes, especially Bethʼs death in the musical Little Women. During the musical Godspell there were eight melodies sung at the same time, which is quite a task to plan. Mr. McSheffrey describes seeing the show come together as his favourite part of his job. “I donʼt generally know the script or story very well, so hearing the songs come together with the acting is a great feeling.” His hard work certainly pays off in the form of a number of fantastic performances. According to McSheffrey, the feeling that comes after the musical is one of relief but also sadness, “as though someone has died.” Every year, the performances become more and more advanced. Last year, special effects like dry ice and strobe lights were used for the first time during the showing of The Secret Garden. This year, the dazzling choreography by teacher Krista Rosien will be a big source of interest! This year, The Sound of Music will be performed May 14, 16, 17 and 18 at 7 p.m. The $10 tickets can be purchased at Breenʼs Insurance, Aikenheadʼs Drug Store and St. Joeʼs. The performances are open to the public. Make sure you pick up some tickets, you are guaranteed a good show!

Our Lady of Fatima teachers recently hosted Marg Davies from Apple Canada. The funding for her visit came from two ongoing TLLP (Teacher Learning and Leadership) grants received by the kindergarten and primary teachers at OLF.

A grand total of $43,400 was received for both projects. In addition, eight iPads and 23 iPod Touches were purchased to service the goals of both projects. The Apple training was opened to all teaching staff at Our Lady of Fatima, as well as several other members of the school board. Superintendent of Program Jaimie

Perry was also in attendance for the training sessions as he leads RCCDSB educators to effectively merge teaching strategies and digital literacy to promote student engagement. The first day of training consisted of learning how to use the iOS operating system (specifically for Apple technology). Teachers were given the opportunity to use their

personal iPads and an iPod Touch during the workshop; therefore demonstrating new learning and providing practical application information. The second full day of training really promoted creativity and divergent thinking within the group. Teachers were introduced to three specific applications: iPhotos, iMovie and Garage Band. This session consisted of

learning how to edit photos using the iPhotos application. iMovie gave the educators the opportunity to create their very own short movie using video and pictures they had previously collected throughout the school year thus far. Garage Band had even Jaimie Perry trying his luck at the virtual keyboard, guitar and string instruments of this amazing application.

The same situation, a different outcome


from branch to branch close to the impostor. Both are very nervous and become agitated when their territory is approached.

JIM FERGUSON Scene from the Hawk’s Eye to the pond for many years where the female raises her young. Mallard ducks join in group displays more than in individual displays. Another interesting aspect of mallard behaviour is that the male defends a territory that is not near the nest sight and in fact may be as much as a hundred yards (98M) away. The pair will stay together for a few weeks and then the male leaves to join other males for the summer.

A pair of mallard ducks returned to a pond near the home of June and Frank Shepherd this week. The birds have been returning

Jo-Anne and Bill Wendt saw a very rare black-backed woodpecker near their home in Ferguslea this week. When the elm trees were dying from the elm disease, woodpeckers had plenty of dead trees with soft wood to excavate and build a nest. The woodpeckers became difficult to find when the trees were gone and had to move elsewhere to find nest trees. A few are returning but are still considered rare.

Terry Cunningham had a northern harrier hunting near his home. This species, male and female, hunt as a pair on many occasions. One, male or female, will cruise over a field where mouse houses are visible. The leading bird will swoop down and lift the top off the nest; the following bird will dive in and take any mice it can find. When the female is incubating the eggs the male will hunt to supply her with food. When the eggs hatch one adult will guard the nest and the other will hunt. As the chicks grow and more food is required both adults will hunt.


Eastern bluebirds arrived this week at Murden and Marjorie Johnston`s home near Douglas. Kevin and Pauline Hughes saw bluebirds investigating their bird houses. Cathy and Remick Campbell saw a pair of bluebirds gathering nesting materials. Mary and Dwaine Steele saw bluebirds near their bird feeders. The birds arrived at very close to the same time as last year. The weather conditions last weekend certainly dampened their will to nest but spring will arrive it does every year and nesting will start.

Mac Pierce, RR 6, Renfrew and Jean Calberry, RR 1, Renfrew had white wild turkeys in their yards this past week. These birds have many combinations of white and black feathers. They may be a cross between wild male turkeys and domesticated white female turkeys or visa versa. We have not been able to verify the origin of such birds or their survival rates compared to either wild or domestic turkeys.




Marilyn and Chummie Welch had an American kestrel strike a window in their home and kill itself. Bonnie and Paul Ouellete had an American kestrel hunting near their home and it was successful in its search for food. Windows are a major hazard for birds of prey. They see the reflection of trees and sky in the glass and assume that it is clear sailing but they come to an abrupt stop when they strike the window. Many survive the collision but just as many do not. To help prevent such collisions you can place paper silhouettes of hawks on your windows or cover the windows completely. We have had some success suspending wind chimes, sun catchers and Christmas tree ornaments either inside or outside the windows.


An immature American kestrel.

Barb and Bob Bittorf saw two sandhill cranes near Cotieville and were able to get some very good pictures of the birds. It is the first time the Bittorfs have seen the cranes in this area. It will be a few weeks yet before the cranes move to their nest site.



Ruby and Jim Vieland have both killdeer and robins defending territories near their home. Both species are noisy and take every opportunity to chase intruders away by singing loudly. Their songs are very different but have the same aggressive tone. Although robins do not do the ʻinjuredʼ act they are very active when disturbed, flying close an intruder, calling loudly and hopping

WHAT IS THE CPR GOING TO DO AT RENFREW?: On Tuesday of this week, a rumour had wings throughout the town that Canadian PaciďŹ c Railway had purchased 20 acres from Mr. James Carswell out near the K&P Railway round-house, and has some extension in view there, either making of this a divisional point or building repair shops. Further that surveyors had been at work on the property. So far The Mercury can learn no sale of additional land has yet been made to the railway. They own considerable out near the K&P round-house and it is possible that whatever is in prospect â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for The Mercury has an impression from enquiries that there is some development under consideration â&#x20AC;&#x201C; may be in connection with K&P operations.

OLGA LEWIS From the Old Files

ANOTHER INDUSTRY FOR RENFREW: Thos. A. Low, ex-M.P., is planting some more industrial roots in Renfrew. He has been a leading shareholder in the Renfrew Electrical Manufacturing Company, which for some years has been in operation in Ottawa, and of which Mr. R.P. Moodie, formerly of Renfrew, is manager. The business demanding larger premises, the resolve has been made to come to Renfrew, and in the course of a few days ground will be broken for the new premises. Mr. Low is out of town at the time of writing, but it is understood that the buildings will be much like those of the Separator Company and

will be on the ĘťElm LaneĘź lot just across the CPR track from this other factory. It is likely that the old elm under which, a generation or more ago, the teen boys witnessed games of lacrosse, will have to come down; a victim to the march of industrial properties. APRIL 21, 1938

In memory of my loving husband and best friend, Merle Patrick GriďŹ&#x192;n, who passed away April 17, 2012.


An Amazing Everyday Life On March 14th, my aunt Catherine Jessie (Kay) McNaughton passed away one month short of her 94th birthday. She lived her entire life in Arnprior, save for the past year when she moved to a nursing home in Kingston to be closer to family. She lived an amazing everyday life. She never climbed Mount Everest or ran a big company. Her accomplishments were everyday events, but amazing over a lifetime. For starters, she lived in the house she was born in at 156 Elgin St. her entire life. She was born April 22, 1919. The midwife arrived a few days early by horse and cutter because the road between Arnprior and Braeside were still snow covered and greasy. Catherine never lived in another residence for the next 91 years - I wonder is the Guinness Book of World Records has a category anything like this in their pages. After high school, she went to secretarial school in Carleton Place. She travelled back and forth each day on the train. She then became a legal secretary for Con Mulvihill Sr. She worked for the ďŹ rm (now Mulvihill and Murray) for the next 44 years. I ďŹ gured one time that she walked more than 22,000 miles back and forth to work. In all those years, there was exactly one murder case she was involved with - a case from far away Pembroke! Catherine never married, probably due to circumstances more than anything. My grandmother was sick with cancer for years when my aunt was in her twenties. This was followed up caring for my great aunt, then my grandfather in their declining years. The house at 156 Elgin St. was my auntâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life. It was her universe. She would come to visit my family in Kingston for a few days but would always return home early because â&#x20AC;&#x153;someone was coming to the houseâ&#x20AC;?. My sisters and I visited the house our entire lives. We knew where everything was - the cookie jar (she was a great baker)... nothing ever seemed to change in the house. She would often say she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have many visitors in later years; yet every day a handful of people would drop in. She had great and caring neighbours. She loved Arnprior and the Ottawa Valley...she was Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Number 1 supporter her whole life. She however loved her family even more. She was the kindest, most supporting person a family could ever have. We have been truly blessed to have had Catherine in our lives. There will be a celebration of Catherineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life Saturday April 20th from 12 -2 pm at the Boyce Funeral Home. Lee McNaughton Kingston

We still canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe you are gone, We miss you in so many ways, We miss the things you used to say, And when old times we do recall, Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s then we miss you most of all, Love you and miss you both so much!

We miss you so much!!! Forever loved, Linda and your family

Lovingly remembered by many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, clients and countless friends.
