Our presses are on the move, but weʼre staying put. The presses will start to be disassembled Monday, June 3 for their big move to our Smiths Falls print facility. The entire move is expected to take about three weeks. The global printing press consists of three colour towers, a folder, a floor unit and two splicers. All full-time staff associated with the press operation were offered the opportunity to transfer to Smiths Falls, and four accepted. “Staff will be transferring from the printing, prepress and trucking departments,” said Metroland East vicepresident and regional publisher Mike Mount. “Approximately 15 employees will continue to work at this (Renfrew) location, in sales, editorial, administration and inserting,” he said. Mount also confirmed that the Opeongo Road facility will continue to serve as home to The Renfrew Mercury.

In both, the contestants pitch their business plan, in flashy or not so flashy style, crunching numbers, displaying product and saying how and when their company is, or will be, profitable.

‘PRESENTATION, NOT CONSULTATION’

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING TUESDAY, JUNE 11, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. All members are encouraged to attend.

2 The Renfrew Mercury EMC - Thursday, May 30, 2013

R0012093551

The Board of Directors wishes to thank the members for their active participation throughout the past curling season, and welcomes the opportunity to discuss future plans for the club with the membership.

Opinions continue to be collected about the preliminary draft agreement in principle (AIP) that has long-standing roots, namely an Oct. 7, 1763 Royal Proclamation by King George III and a 1772 Algonquin petition to the Crown. The current land claim is expected to result in the first Ontario aboriginal treaty agreement since 1924, but there is still much work to do. So said Bob Potts, chief negotiator for the Algonquins of Ontario, who was the host and speaker of a May 22 forum at the Eganville Arena about the preliminary draft AIP. More than 50 municipal, provincial and federal officials attended. Other forums for municipal officials are scheduled for North Bay May 31 and Perth June 3. Pottsʼ presentation included a question-and-answer session, while the forum also allowed for one-on-one conversations with officials, and a chance to view maps of the proposed land settlement transfers. The preliminary draft AIP calls for a transfer of $300 million to the Algonquins and recommends approaches to address Algonquin harvesting rights, forestry, parks and protected area, Algonquin heritage and culture, and Algonquin eligibility. The proposed Crown land consists of more than 200 parcels of land, ranging from a few acres to more than 30,000. “Weʼre here because this is part of a process that we felt was fundamental to achieving a resolution, and reconciliation is part of any treaty negotiation,” said Potts. “Itʼs unique, itʼs never been done before, in terms on consultation before an AIP is signed. But thatʼs where we felt that we (the Alqonquins and provincial and federal governments) needed to go — to get feedback, to get input, to spread our message.”

One member of the audience said the consultation period (that began with release of the preliminary draft AIP in December 2012) has really been a period of presentation, not consultation. Not entirely, said Potts. Firstly, he stressed there was no advantage to consulting with all affected, or potentially-affected, parties until the Algonquins and provincial and federal governments had been able to identify common denominators for an AIP. Inviting everyone to be part of that process, he suggested, would have created mayhem.

Now there will be changes to the current AIP based on meaningful feedback, said Potts. “This is not fluff, this is an honest, genuine effort to get feedback,” Potts said during his presentation. Responding directly to the gentlemanʼs criticism, he replied: “In all the discussions Iʼve been part of … weʼre not just presenting. Weʼre there to listen, and today was no exception. Weʼre here to get feedback. There will be more of this in the next few months. Weʼre going to try to get as much information as we can before we go back to the terms of the agreement, and where we can make it better we will.” He also noted that there will still be opportunity to amend the AIP before the treaty is signed. That probably wonʼt happen for another five years or more, he suggested. “We are still in the gatheringof-information stage and involved in discussions on some changes in aspects of the preliminary-draft AIP, including the land selections. It would be inappropriate and premature for me to speak on those initiatives while they are ongoing,” said Potts the day after the forum. “All that can be said is that there will be changes in the draft AIP which will be the successor to the PDAIP, based on these very constructive conversations and consultations that are underway, including the forum with elected officials that took place in Eganville.” LOTS OF UNFINISHED BUSINESS

STEVE NEWMAN/METROLAND

Laurentian Valley Mayor Jack Wilson speaks to Bob Potts, chief negotiator for the Algonquins on the preliminary draft agreement in principle (AIP) that stems from an Algonquin petition to the Crown in 1772. Potts and about 50 municipal officials were in Eganville May 22 for the first of three forums on the preliminary draft AIP. 117,500 acres scheduled for transfer to the Algonquins, is: • residential and industrial development – four per cent; • historical or spiritual – 32 per cent; • economic development, commercial, tourism – 17 per cent; • community, recreation and environmental protection – 47 per cent. KEY BUILDING BLOCKS

At the forum, Potts said thereʼs still a lot of unfinished business. “We still have a lot of work to do, talking to people, to work out arrangements for things like aggregates, hunt camps and snowmobile trails … We want to talk and work out arrangements … without exposing us to liability.” During the forum, Potts said the proposed land selections for transfer to the Algonquins will occur for one of four purposes. Most of those lands will be subject to taxation and land-use discussions with municipalities. Three areas, which will be exempt from taxation, are scheduled to be recreational or environmental areas: 3,000 acres around Mattawa-North Bay, 18,000 acres in the WhitneyBancroft area and 34,000 acres in an area running from Algonquin Park to Golden Lake. It will also take an estimated five to 10 years to transfer the land to an Algonquin system. This will also be worked out through consultation with municipalities over the next four years, said Potts. The updated division, for the

Potts said the five key building blocks behind the drafting of the AIP are to: 1. reaffirm the honour and pride of the Algonquin people; 2. ensure the survival and prosperity of the Algonquin people and culture; 3. raise awareness and understanding of Algonquin history and culture; 4. stimulate cultural and economic development opportunities; and 5. achieve reconciliation of the relationships of the Algonquins with the Canadian and Ontario governments. Renfrew County Warden Peter Emon said the forum was reassuring. “Weʼve heard it from the federal and provincial perspective, and today we heard it from the Algonquinsʼ perspective. They have continually been respectful of the process and of the rights of the present landowners, and thatʼs been reaffirmed today.” “From a county perspective, we are generally pleased with the progress on municipal issues,” said Renfrew County chief administrative officer Jim Hutton. “Three or four years ago,

property taxation and land-use planning were not even on the table. The (preliminary) draft AIP addresses these issues fairly well from a purely municipal perspective. “Individual ratepayers and groups have indicated a major concern with the harvesting aspects and some of the specific proposed land transfers. However, there is really no specific municipal jurisdiction over those areas.” “This process (with the May 22 forum and public meetings) has been good,” said Jane Dumas, mayor of South Algonquin Township whose centres include the villages of Whitney and Madawaska. “It was also reassuring to hear Bob Potts state that, down the road, when everything is done, municipalities will have access to making at least a bid on Crown land … because if you look at the map, 90 per cent of South Algonquin is Crown land.” Proposed land settlement transfers in South Algonquin to the Algonquins of Ontario amount to about 10,000 acres, including land around Galeairy and Aylen lakes. Municipalities represented at the Eganville forum included such Renfrew-area municipalities as Greater Madawaska, Admaston-Bromley and Bonnechere Valley, as well as Pikwakanagan, Madawaska Valley, South Algonquin, Hastings Highlands and Addington Highlands. More than 8,000 Algonquins are expected to vote on the draft AIP this year.

Horton residents to face tax hike of 4.49 per cent Horton Township residents will face a 4.49 per cent hike in taxes in 2013. Owners of a home valued at $100,000 in 2012 and rising the average township assessment of more than 15 per cent, will pay $1,134.01. ThatĘźs up from $1,085, or a rise of $48.75. Owners of a more typical home, valued at $200,000, will pay closer to $100 extra in taxes this year. HortonĘźs tax bill includes county and education taxes. The townshipĘźs portion of the total tax levy is actually rising from $1.563 million to $1.719 mil-

lion —a difference of 9.98 per cent. Presenters during the May 21 public meeting on the proposed budget were HortonĘźs ďŹ nance manager Jennifer Barr and Mayor Don Eady. HortonĘźs tax pie, said Barr, represents 19 per cent in school taxes, 33 per cent for county taxes, seven per cent for OPP services and 41 per cent in township taxes. Two local residents appeared for the same dayĘźs earlier public meeting on development charges, but no members of the public attended the budgetĘźs public meeting. The ďŹ rst meeting last about an hour, while the budget meet-

ing was over in 45 minutes. “IĘźm disappointed there was no one here from the public for such an important meeting,â€? said Coun. Bob Kingsbury. He was much more pleased with the budgetĘźs numbers. “I think weĘźve done our ďŹ ne cutting ‌ this is the money we actually need to run the township this year. I think weĘźve done the best job we could possibly do,â€? said Kingsbury. “The days of zero and one and two per cent tax increases are no longer with us,â€? said Coun. Jamey Larone. “IĘźm pleased,â€? said Coun. Margaret Whyte. “Coming in at zero per cent increase doesnĘźt happen any-

more,â€? she said. “IĘźm pleased with the 4.49 per cent increase.â€? Coun. Glen Campbell said he was pleased to see township debt decrease by yearĘźs end, to $519,773. That compares to a debt of $881,838 in 2010. Also, reserves are increasing, with an extra $52,960 transferred to reserves this year. That will bring reserves to $864,959, compared to $603,765 in 2010. Budget increases earmarked as items outside councilĘźs control included an $18,8000 reduction in unconditional Ontario Municipal Partnership Fund monies, a $2,677 increase in OPP costs, a $5,777 hike in OMERS (staff pension plan)

Steep hike for Horton lot development fees Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

Lot development fees are going up as much as $606, or nearly 20 per cent, in Horton Township. Minor adjustments were made to the fee schedule recommended by Jp2g Consultants during the public meeting held May 21. Planners Eric Withers and Brian Whitehead presented results of the companyĘźs Lot Development Charges Background Study to council. The fees are determined after an examination of current growth and estimates of projected growth. “ItĘźs an opinion, but an opinion based on activity,â€? said Whitehead, who has worked on several of HortonĘźs lot development studies since the 1990s.

The fee schedule will come before Horton council for approval June 4. HortonĘźs fees for single-detached homes, apartments and mobile homes remain $3,122, $2,549 and $1,984 respectively through to June 3. The new bylaw, which would come into effect June 4, calls for fees of $3,728, $3,110 and $2,332, or respective hikes of $606, $561 and $348. “I thought it was a wee bit higher than I would have liked to see,â€? said Mayor Don Eady of HortonĘźs new fee structure. “But the facts are on the table, and thatĘźs why we do our study, because the new development fees go a long way toward paying for our infrastructure.â€? Every ďŹ ve years, Ontario municipalities are required to adopt a bylaw stating the amount of their development fees.

Neighbouring McNab-Braeside TownshipĘźs lot development fees, which are subject to change in 2014, are $3,152 for single-detached residences, $2,402 for apartments and $2,282 for mobile homes. RenfrewĘźs development fees are $2,940 for single-detached residents, $2,400 for two-bedroom apartments and $2,104 for one-bedroom apartments. Admaston-Bromley has no lot development fees. RenfrewĘźs commercial development fees are $2 per square foot (or more than $6 per square metre). HortonĘźs new commercial rate is $2.79 per square metre, compared to a previous rate of $5.95. HortonĘźs total population, including seasonal residents, is 3,708. The estimated cost for Jp2gĘźs most recent Lot Development Charges Background Study is $20,000.

Municipalities could face liability, says Admaston-Bromley council peter.clark@metroland.com

The Municipality of Dutton/Dunwich recently concluded a liability trial in connection with an action arising from a singlevehicle accident on a rural, gravel roadway in its jurisdiction in January 2007. The 16-year-old driver ran a stop sign, lost control and crashed into a cement culvert, injuring both himself and a passenger. Although the driverĘźs blood level (.029)

was above the zero level that a G2 driver should have, the municipality was found 50 per cent liable for the accident. Rural drivers in the area had a habit of running stop signs when intersecting trafďŹ c was not present. The municipality knew of this and should have, therefore, warned of the skew, the judge said. There should have been a billboard up, the judge also said. “The outcome of this case is of great concern to us and to municipalities across Ontario. It is not the result of proper analy-

sis or application of the present law in this province and, if it stands through appeal, willl mean that municipalities will have to make their roads safe for similar use,� said the Frank Cowan Company of Princeton, Ont., which is appealing this decision to the Ontario Court of Appeal. “We need a very strong voice from the municipal sector to engage our provincial government in the dialogue,� the company said.

costs and a $15,000 drop in supplementary taxes. One increased budget item will lead to big longterm savings. Referring to the increased landďŹ ll attendantĘźs hours from four to 12 months, Eady said this extra cost of $10,000 will lead to a longer shelf life for the landďŹ ll site. Other items of note included gravel replacement for Pastway, Early and McInnes roads, with $10,000 coming from taxation and $40,000 from federal gas tax money. “These were roads with more than four inches of gravel,â€? said Barr. “This wasnĘźt just patching, but maintaining.â€? ThereĘźs also a $12,000 increase in garbage and recycling pickup, and anticipated improvements to the

boat launch, with a pump building and washrooms. That will be paid for by lot development charges. The township will also afford a ž-ton truck for public works, by dipping into reserves. Reserves will also account for: • several GPS units for the roads department, • about $4,500 to complete the retaining wall at the community hall, and • about $11,000 of $15,000 to repave part of the municipal parking lot. A total of $4,158 in taxation dollars will account for the remainder of that paving bill. Dishwasher and kitchen equipment will come from an $8,800 Horizon grant and $490 in taxation dollars.

“He (Frank Cowan Company) is leading the charge to get that reviewed,” Admaston-Bromley Coun. Robert Dick said. It is called Take a Stand with Frank Cowan Company to avoid a municipal insurance crisis. “I think we should support it,” Coun. Dick said. One thing that can up the costs for municipalities is when a case drags on, the way it is now, Mayor Briscoe said. “Believe it or not, at the end of the day, municipalities can be refused coverage. It can happen,” she added. Admaston-Bromley Council showed its support May 16 for the resolution presented by Dutton-Dunwich and requests that the Province of Ontario work with municipalities to develop a long-term and sustainable solution that will protect municipalities from rising litigation and claims costs. A copy of support has also been forwarded to Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MPP John Yakabuski, Association of the Municipalities of Ontario, the Ontario Good Roads Association and Frank Cowan Company. • Admaston-Bromley resident Calvin Morton, owner of a rural residence, has asked that he be allowed to live in a mobile home on the property until which time his home is rebuilt. Morton is in the process of building a new home on his property. “He did have some unfortunate happenings to his home, and it forced the demolition,” Mayor Raye-Anne Briscoe said. Council passed a bylaw to grant Mortonʼs request. Mayor Briscoe said this is a special case. “Weʼve had to make accommodation, and thatʼs what weʼve done. We wish Mr. Morton luck. Itʼs a tough go.” • There were four building permits in the township in April, totalling $145,000. • Admaston-Bromley is a partner client of the Bonnechere Valley Dog Pound.

Because of changes in the Ontario Animal Welfare Legislation resulting in increased labour costs and the need to upgrade, the monthly fee at the dog pound for municipalities will be increased by $35, starting in June. Administrator and pound keeper Steven Fiegen “does everything in his power to make sure those animals find a home,” Mayor Briscoe said. The relationship with Admaston-Bromley is a positive one, she added. The township is on board with the $35 increase. • Recreation is running a successful mixed beach volleyball league with 24 teams, 18 in the recreation division and six in competitive, Coun. Ray Pender noted. Township accounting clerk and former player Sarah McGregor said the recreation loop still produces good volleyball, as several players cross over after playing on the competitive side. Retired Opeongo High School teacher Dave Dobson is also heading up a volleyball club for students. He expects to have about 60 to 70 students involved on Tuesday nights in Douglas. • The Douglas Fire Department was busy ensuring township residents are safer in their homes. Deputy fire chief Patrick Rowan reported that they spent 174 hours on house calls for smoke alarms, and travelled 346 kilometres. “That was with their own vehicles,” Coun. Robert Dick said. “I congratulate them. They are keeping up the good work in terms of smoke alarm safety,” Mayor Briscoe said. • OPP Municipal Policing Bureau Commander- Superintendent Rick Philbin notified all 323 OPP-serviced municipalities in May with respect to the 2014 projected salary increase of 8.55 per cent. The salary increase is part of the collective agreement, starting January 2011 and to end in December of 2104. The terms called for a five per cent increase in 2011, followed by a two-year wage freeze in 2012 and 2103. It concludes with a salary increase in 2014 which will match the salary of the highest paid police service in Ontario.

They will be selling ice cream products via boat on the Madawaska River. “At first it was kind of scary,” said Zach of competing in the Wolvesʼ Den. “But then I realized they were really nice, and they didnʼt criticize my mistakes.” Adding some colour and levity to the event were the Wroesʼ bright Boat Boyz caps and neon green t-shirts, with Boy 1 or Boy 2 marked on the back. One of the judges, Calabogie Peaks Resort and Conference Centre coowner Liz Murphy, called the inaugural Wolvesʼ Den exciting. “I am in awe of the ideas that people have, from the most basic to some really sophisticated ideas,” she said of the 10 contestants. Fellow panelist Fred Runge, the retired and former owner of Runge Pub-

year-old who did most of the talking in a presentation with her father Marc, a charming fan favourite. The Fourniers were marketing the F-finder, a device for locating lost products. Runge also said Sexton was the toast of the adult category. The other judges were vice-pres-

ident Melany Tracey of Centreside Dairy and Traceyʼs Dairy & Ice Cream Products and Joe Kowalski, founder and president of Wilderness Tours, Canadaʼs largest whitewater rafting company. The show host was Laura Earl of myFM radio station.

Up for grabs for each of the two winners, in the youth (18 and under) and adult (19 and over) categories, was $1,000 in cash and more than $6,500 in business products or services. When the nearly four-hour event was over, the winners were Connor Schriver, an Arnprior District High School Grade 12 student who sells his own clothing line, and Cobden resident Keith Sexton, who pitched mobile phone applications for local businesses. The judges all have a history of financial or business success, including 19-year-old racing car driver and Algonquin College student Nathan Blok of Beachburg who has appeared on Dragonsʼ Den. So has Rob Campbell, president of the Renfrew and Area Chamber of Commerce, who said he was extremely pleased with the inaugural Wolvesʼ Den. “We werenʼt sure how it would go over,” said Campbell, who credited local businesses with taking control of the event after seeing its potential. “It originally started just for youth, to see if we could engage them entrepreneurship, but we had so many adults come forward with business ideas, so we opened it up to two categories,” said Campbell of the event that was hosted by the Chamber of Commerce, in conjunction with Renfrew County Community Futures Development Corporation. After an “absolutely superb” debut of the Wolvesʼ Den, Campbell said the chamber is already looking forward to a 2014 edition. More than anything, the president said, he hopes the event generates more area businesses. “Failing that, even if some of these people donʼt pursue the business theyʼve shown here, most of these people have shown they have an entrepreneurial spirit, and they will do something some day,” said Campbell. “Some of these youth were unbelievable … theyʼre going to be successful, no mater what they do.”

The value of end-of-life care Editor’s note: The following article was submitted by Hospice Renfrew, with permission from the author.

As a news reporter, I specialize in telling other peopleʼs stories as a way of explaining or understanding issues and events that are important to Canadians. This story is my own familyʼs story and although it does not qualify as “news”, it is about a painful event we all face. It is about my fatherʼs death and what that has taught me about end-of-life care. My father died in a hospice in Renfrew, Ont. Wrapped around the moments of heartbreak and, frankly, emotional trauma, were family whispers of “what would we do without this place?” Hospice Renfrew is simply a model of what anyone would want in the worst-case scenario: a beautiful palliative-care facility with exceptional staff that pulses with compassion and respect. It was never the plan. When my dad was diagnosed with terminal oesophogeal cancer he bravely ʻput his affairs in orderʼ and told his loved ones that he wanted to stay at home; with a nurse in the family we thought it was manageable. His dedicated family doctor made daily visits and Ontarioʼs Community Care Access Centre arranged for all the supplies my parents needed. But cancer doesnʼt follow anyoneʼs plans. My father struggled with unspeakable pain as the cancer literally splintered his bones. His caregivers tried every conceivable combination to manage the pain and still follow his wishes to stay lucid. There were so many drugs and so many side effects. He had to be hospitalized several times and he hated that.

Through his doctor he was able to get a much-sought-after space in Hospice Renfrew. It was supposed to be a short-term stay to help find the right drug regime, but he never went home. And even though he did not want to die, he knew he was fortunate to be where he was. He had superb 24-hour nursing care that was not in any way intrusive. He had a lovely room with a distinctly non-medical look where family was welcome any time without limits. We even had sleepovers when it was too hard to leave. Many people in his situation canʼt get into a hospice and have to stay in a hospital. A Canadian senate study in 2000 found that hospices in Canada can only meet about 15 per cent of the demand of our aging population. And government funding has not grown as fast as demand. As a Canadian living in the U.S. I often quietly give thanks for the Canadian health-care system. A modest-income family, we never once had to worry whether health insurance would cover a necessary drug or another hospital stay the way so many Americans do. But the truth is, there are not enough Hospice Renfrews in Ontario or in Canada. The ones that do exist do so thanks in large part to the kindness of their community. Hospice Renfrew relies on private donations for 50 per cent of its operating budget. Volunteers play a key role, offering everything from fresh baking to knitted slippers and company for patients and family. My father didnʼt have an easy or gentle death. It is awful to write that and it was horrible to watch. But I cannot imagine anyone doing anything more to help him keep his dignity and with as much comfort as possible. This is a heartfelt thank you to the very special team who took care of my dad, but it is more than that. My dad taught me so much in life, told me always to question and to challenge and to fight for good. I wish Hospice Renfrew quality care for every Canadian family that needs it. And I urge a national conversation about whether we can afford it and whether we can afford to ignore the need.

New Renfrew County United Way executive director Gail Logan, a former president of the Ottawa Chamber of Commerce, is the new executive director of Renfrew County United Way. She assumed the position May 22. She was appointed to a three-year term to manage the charity, which supports agencies and organizations that address social needs and issues

throughout the region. “Gail has over 35 years of experience and she brings a wealth of new ideas and real positive energy to the role,” said Renfrew County United Way board chair Shelley Rolland-Poruks in a news release. Loganʼs awards and recognition over the years include being named one of the 100 most

influential people in Ottawa by Ottawa Life Magazine. “Iʼm really delighted to joined the United Way, an organization that works tirelessly to address the needs of the communities we serve,” said Logan. “The United Way is an important organization that makes a difference in peopleʼs lives.”

Governor General honours volunteers David Johnston, Governor General of Canada, paid tribute to the hundreds of volunteers who devote countless hours to the residents of Miramichi Lodge in the County of Renfrew. The Governor General was met by County of Renfrew Warden Peter Emon who introduced Johnston to some of the residents prior to a luncheon with all members of county council. Upon meeting the Governor General, Warden Emon remarked, “This is a very special occasion not only for the residents of this Home, but for all the residents of the County of Renfrew. “As the Warden of the County of Renfrew, it is safe to say that I speak for all the members of our elected council when I tell you that the quality of life that these residents have would not be possible without our volunteers. These people do not devote their time for recognition. hey donʼt devote their time for big paycheques. They devote their time and their heartfelt compassion because they genuinely care. They take the time to get to know our residents. We are honoured that you took time out of your busy schedule to join us today in recognizing the generous efforts of our volunteers.” Shelley Sheedy, administrator for Miramichi Lodge, echoed the sentiments of Warden Emon.

No time to stop studying the weather The May 17 earthquake was a timely reminder about the power of nature. Now, we canʼt do much about earthquakes other than be prepared as possible to deal with them and their aftermath. We need to know what to do to maximize our chances to keep safe during a quake and survive afterwards. Luckily, our little shaker paled in comparison to the tornado that devastated Moore, a suburb of Oklahoma City Monday. Weʼll always have earthquakes and tornadoes, but the sheer size of the Oklahoma tornado was frightening. It was estimated to be three kilometres wide with winds up to almost 500 km-h. Itʼs another sign that our weather is becoming more extreme, especially in North America. While mankind canʼt be faulted for earthquakes, it is obvious that man-made charges have a role to play in our shifting weather patterns.

Weʼve been through this before, with the changing of the Prairies in the U.S. into farmland causing the destructive sand storms of the Dirty Thirties. Now, tornadoes, hurricanes and wind bursts are becoming more frequent and violent. And itʼs not just in the U.S. Just ask the folks in the Norway Lake and White Lake areas who lost trees and cottages last summer. If the swath of destruction carved out by the wind storm had been a few kilometres to the north and gone through downtown Renfrew, it certainly would have received much more attention. Despite their increasing frequency, we know relatively little about tornadoes and these worsening storms It proves that this is no time to be cutting and muzzling scientists. We need to know if we are helping to create these monsters before itʼs too late to do anything about them.

One of the secrets of happiness Thereʼs a tree house in our backyard, but itʼs not quite like the one in Mary Pope Osborneʼs Magic Tree House and Magic Tree House Merlin Missions series. In those books, thereʼs an abundance of common sense, imagination and magic, as Iʼve learned since we happened across one of Osborneʼs stories a few years ago. The story, Hour of the Olympics, came in the form of a free CD at a restaurant in Maine during a summer holiday, and our story-telling days with our son have never been the same since. I listened to Hour of The Olympics maybe 50 times while driving Aidan to day care, as the main characters, youngsters Jack and Annie, were transported back in time to help find and preserve important Roman literature written by a woman in the day when females were prevented from writing stories or poetry for public consumption. Throughout the Magic Tree House and Magic Tree House Merlin Missions series, thereʼs no shortage of enjoyable listening, including Tonight on the Titanic, Civil War on Sunday, Dragon of the Red Dawn and Eve of the Emperor Penguins. But Monday with a Mad Genius is one of the best, for many reasons, including

STEVE NEWMAN Steve’s Sixth Sense insights into the secrets of happiness. First published in 2007, Monday with a Mad Genius takes us back more than 500 years, to the Italian days of inventor, author and painter Leonardo da Vinci. As we are told in the opening pages, Jack and Annie, who are brother and sister, are sent, via the magic tree house in their backyard in Frog Creek, Pennsylvania, to Florence. Their intended mission is to find one of the four secrets of happiness while spending the day with da Vinci. Discovering these secrets of happiness is supposed to improve the ailing health of Merlin the Magician. Early in the story, da Vinci himself, when asked what the secret of happiness is, replies in a convinced tone that it is fame. He explains to Jack and Annie that

youngstersʼ original question about a secret of happiness. “The secret of happiness is available to all of us, every hour of every day,” da Vinci tells them. “Young, old, rich, poor — everyone can choose to find happiness in this way.” As they lean forward, eager to hear his answer, he says, “Curiosity.” He explains that heʼs always searching for answers to things he doesnʼt understand. Consequently, he says he looks forward to each new day because there is so much more to discover. “Through my curiosity, I forget my failures and sorrows, and I feel great happiness,” adds da Vinci. I love that conclusion, and respect the way that author Mary Pope Osborne has captured something that many of us may overlook. For me, much of the happiness derived from my work has to do with asking questions, whether simple, imaginative, probing, intellectual or silly, all to find out what I might be missing in a story about a person or an issue. Curiosity whets my appetite and keeps me inspired. But how about you? Whatʼs one of your secrets of happiness?

heʼs happy when he looks into the eyes of complete strangers and witnesses their awe and admiration. But even to Jack and Annie, the inventorʼs answer was unconvincing. Thatʼs partly because the note sent them by the magical librarian Morgan le Fay, from the legendary realm of Camelot, suggested otherwise. In her note, le Fay said the question about the secret of happiness was simple but that simple answers might be wrong. Therefore, to acquire the right answer, they would have to stay with the genius all day long, until the night bird sings its song. After meeting with varying degrees of frustration, while working on a mural painting and attempting to fly (with his own constructed wings), da Vinci meets with more success when his subject for a painting he has been working on for years musters a smile. Lisa smiles after learning that da Vinci will never sell the painting heʼs doing of her, a painting that went on to become the worldʼs famous Mona Lisa. While asking da Vinci about his painting technique, Jack and Annie learn that heʼs always asking questions. Which causes da Vinci to rethink the

COMMUNITY soothe the soul. At our last meeting, I tried to set a stage for some still life drawing. It was an attempt to present a challenge to everyone. Without challenge we donĘźt grow as people, as artists. The big weekend, July 13 and 14, is fast approaching for the Renfrew Art in the Park show. It looks like we will have a dynamic show with something for everyone!

Otherwise itĘźs back to Trinity-St. AndrewĘźs United Church. Bring a favourite inspirational source (some prose, photos, art, literary ďŹ ction, non-ďŹ ction) and share the roots of inspiration. Its content may inspire someone else. Nothing like a good book for some summer relaxing. So, bring a lawn chair and see you there.

Fashionable threesome under one roof McNab Days Continued from page 9

The second signature event of the week is the Red Pine Bay Riverdrive. The event is being held once again at Red Pine Bay in Braeside, this year on Saturday, June 29, the last weekend of McNab Days on Saturday, June 29. “McNab-Braeside township is blessed with many magnificent waterways, including a beautiful stretch of the Ottawa River above Arnprior,” says chair John Brady. “The Riverdrive event is held to celebrate both our long and colourful history with the Ottawa River, as well as our current and future enjoyment. “This fun-filled day features music, recreational opportunities, demonstrations, dock-diving dogs, a humorous and thought-provoking look at our relationship with nature by Stone Fence Theatre, river boat tours and more. You wonʼt want to miss out.” Admission to both the Scottish Festival and Riverdrive are free, but donations will be welcome to help offset the costs of putting on these two signature events. In addition, there will once again be a horseshoe tournament, to be held the evening of Wednesday, June 25, at Wellington Park in Pine Grove.

And now there are three. Christina Ouellet of The Flower Factory opened two years ago in Renfrew across the street, but now sheʼs one of three businesses under the same roof. Ouellet as well as Denis Essiambre of Valley Needleworx and Kaelea Runtz of A Dash of Fab say theyʼre offering a nice mix of fashion, flowers and fabric at 166 Raglan St. South. “I think itʼs great because it increases the amount of traffic,” said Essiambre. “Itʼs good for the three of us.” GRAND OPENING

The McNab Days organizers have developed a logo for the annual festival. The circular logo with green and pale yellow backdrop features the Celtic knot in the middle entwined by two purple Scottish thistles. A blue wavy line representing water – and symbolic of the townshipʼs two rivers and major lake – separates the graphic from McNab Days 2013.

They held their grand opening to coincide with the May 4 Great Downtown Garage Sale, which met with positive acclaim. In addition to having access to downtown businesses, there were also more than 50 vendors on the street selling their wares. In addition to flowers, The Flower Factory offers unique house plants, handmade soaps and botanically-inspired décor. “Thereʼs a little something for everyone,” says Ouellet, whose business number is 613-432-8300. A Dash of Fab offers fun, fresh and fabulous accessories, says owner Runtz, whose products include handbags, jewelry and apparel. Her business number is 613-7171233. The only male member of the 20-year-old Quilters Guild of Renfrew and Area, Essiambre says Valley Needleworx offers quilting classes, long-arm quilting, and sewing machine sales and service. He also sells quilting fabrics and supplies. His number is 613-431-ISEW or 431-4739. The Flower Factory, A Dash of Fab and Valley Needleworx opened together in early April.

J.B. Robillard, president and a hearing specialist for Robillard Hearing Centres, sits next to a some of his Renfrew office’s specialized equipment — a tympanometer and an audiometer.

Robillard Hearing Centres in Renfrew expands to full-time The Robillard Hearing Centres, which have been in eastern Ontario since 1958, have expanded their Renfrew operation. There has been a weekly clinic in Renfrew since the 1990s, but the operation expanded to full-time in February 2013. “Itʼs just the demand,” says company president J.B. Robillard. “Our clientele has grown significantly.” The company owners are registered hearing specialists J.B. and wife Julia Robillard of Stittsville and his sister Sophie Cushing of Brockville. “Our ultimate goal is to enable our patients to reach their hearing potential,” said president Robillard. The Renfrew office is located at 500 Raglan St. N, next to Renfrew Victoria Hospital. The hearing centres, which began in Ottawa more than a half-century ago with J.B.ʼs grandfather John H. Robillard, are located in Brockville, central and east Ottawa, Kanata, Orleans, Hawkesbury, Winchester and Perth. For years the business was run by J.B.ʼs father John C. and uncle Paul, but they are now retired. Most of the Robillard Hearing Centreʼs clients are in their

40s or older, but youngsters are also clients, usually because of chronic ear infections or for congenital reasons. J.B. Robillard says itʼs quite natural for hearing to deteriorate. What many people donʼt know is that lost hearing can be regained, through technology and/or training. Solutions to hearing loss, says Robillard, include new Starkey digital technology, which is less than a year old. Depending on the technology, these digital hearing aids can cost $1,600 to $3,000. But itʼs not as simple as just technology, for many clients. Auditory rehabilitation is often part of the solution, if clients are going to regain some of the hearing ability they have lost. In co-ordination with doctor of audiology Sandra Vandenhoff of Calgary, Robillard Hearing Centres have developed an auditory rehab program. With hearing strategies (excluding amplification), clients can regain up to 40 per cent of their hearing loss, says Robillard. “Weʼre trying to distinguish ourselves. Weʼre trying to take a more comprehensive approach … Our company has evolved. Weʼre using the more relevant technologies and weʼre using advanced testing procedures.” Robillard Hearing Centresʼ Renfrew office houses

a reception area, a room for meeting clients one-on-one, a hearing aid lab for repairs and modifications, and a testing room that includes a verification analyzer (to verify that equipment is fitted correctly) as well as an audiometer (to test hearing ability) and a tympanometer (a middle-ear analyzer). The challenge for the patient is to learn to hear correctly again while interacting with oneʼs environment, which includes background noise. “If you havenʼt heard a certain frequency for quite some time, it can be quite surprising (to regain that ability),” said Robillard. “Not everyone can make the adaptation. It is rehab.” If a hearing aid is part of the solution, clients are also eligible for up to $500 in OHIP assistance per ear. The Robillard Hearing Centres have a staff that includes six audiologists, six hearing specialists and Dr. J.P. Souaid, an ear, nose and throat physician from Ottawa. The main staff working in Renfrew will be J.B. and Julia Robillard and doctor of audiology Sean Lennox. The receptionist is Danielle McGregor.

Pathways Alcohol and Drug Treatment Services, founded in 1988, is a charitable, non-proďŹ t organization that is funded by the Champlain Local Health Integration Network. Pathways is governed by a community board of directors. The agency serves all of Renfrew County, with the head ofďŹ ce located in Renfrew, and satellite ofďŹ ces located in both Arnprior and Pembroke and this year they are celebrating 25 years of service delivery to Renfrew County. Pathways provides programs to both substance users, and family members of substance users. Anyone 16 years of age and older can access their programs and they accept referrals from all sources, including self referral. They deliver a client-centred program and utilize a wide range of treatment philosophies, including both harm reduction and abstinencebased strategies. They also offer individual, marital and family therapy as well as a variety of groups throughout the year. Pathways will assist clients with any type of drug addiction, and the care provided is conďŹ dential and nonjudgemental. Executive director Lise Laframboise splits her time between the head ofďŹ ce in Renfrew and the satellite ofďŹ ce in Arnprior, where she has a caseload. Since Laframboise has been with the agency, she has noted the sharp rise in opioid abuse over the years, but also states that alcohol, marijuana and cocaine remain high on the radar The Renfrew ofďŹ ce also has two counsellors, Sharon Arbuthnot, and Gillian McKay, who splits her time between Renfrew and Pembroke.

Deanne Lemieux, the agencyĘźs administrative-ďŹ nancial OfďŹ cer, also works out of the Renfrew ofďŹ ce. Pathways has two specialized programs, including the Early Childhood Development Program and the recently-funded Early Childhood Development Opioid Case Manager Program, which is a wonderful enhancement to an already well established program. These two programs speciďŹ cally assist women who are pregnant and/or parenting and have a substance use problem. Workers Sandra Anderson and JoAnne Brydon will meet with women in their homes, in one of the agencyĘźs ofďŹ ces, or another environment to deliver these programs. This is an important outreach service since transportation is such a barrier in Renfrew County. Intakes for all of Pathways programs can be done in person or over the telephone. Each client is screened for suitability to the program, and if they meet the criteria for admission, an assessment is usually completed. Pathways addresses not only substance use difďŹ culties, but they will assist clients with other life areas as well. All staff have had extensive training in various areas, including trauma, anger management, and mental health. In the last 25 years, Pathways has had the privilege of assisting thousands of clients. Staff talk about what a pleasure it is to see people regain their lives and recover from the difďŹ culties that addiction can bring. Pathways will be formally celebrating 25 years of service to the Renfrew County community at their annuial general meeting, on June 19, at the Best Western Renfrew Inn. The board and staff look forward to many more years of service to the community.

Prime Valley Realty has been in business since last August and currently has Joanne McCallion as its sales representative. “Full service, full value, full commitment” is the company motto. The grand opening event was catered by Christineʼs Kitchen and the food was the talk of the afternoon, said Forrest. “Wraps and dips, including gluten-free selections, and chocolate-covered strawberries were just a

Megram: top-10 website developer Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

Sibername, a major Canadian domain name registrar, has chosen Megram Consulting Services Ltd. as one of the top-10 website developers in Canada. The largest independent website development and hosting company in the Upper Ottawa Valley has designed and developed websites since 1997, when Wilson Investments of Renfrew hired the Renfrew company to build their first site. Megramʼs optimizes protection of personal and other data by using dedicated servers in Montreal. Megramʼs says it came into the website development business because clients were being over-charged for inferior products built by others with little or no design or coding qualifications. Now the Renfrew firm is

one of Canadaʼs largest association management companies, with clients from coast to coast and internationally. Developers/designers Bob Cross, Devon Lesk and Joanne Taylor are supported by an experienced editorial and writing team that includes Meghan Howard, the company vicepresident and director of communications. “Weʼre extremely proud,” said Howard. “We didnʼt apply for it. It was something brought to our attention after Sibername had done a thorough review of how websites are built. And one of the factors was responsiveness. This means weʼre attending to our clientsʼ needs right away and keeping them up-to-date.” Megramʼs says it also develops cutting-edge websites that meet legal accessibility standards for those with hearing and visual disabilities. The

websites are also coded for smartphone and tablet use. The other website developers named in Sibernameʼs top 10 were Cure For Gravity, Curz Web Design, Eclipse-design, Lift Media, Pixelneck, Stratta Creative, SpaceCat, SWTechnologies and Spherika. “The selections were chosen based on creativity, responsiveness and ability to design websites to meet client needs,” said Sibernameʼs announcement. “These Canadian web site designers are dedicated to providing websites that succeed.” Sibername said Megram Consulting Services “are website developers who design, write and build websites that are easy to navigate, attractive and reflective of the clientʼs professional image.” - With files from Sibername and Megram Consulting Services Ltd.

Renfrew M&M Meat Shops helps raise $1.2 million Franchisees, staff and thousands of volunteers at 430 M&M Meat Shops locations across Canada joined together May 11 to raise $1.2 million for the Crohnʼs and Colitis Foundation of Canada. Pulling its weight was the Renfrew store, which raised $1,350 despite inclement morning weather. Supporters from coast to coast lined up to celebrate M&M Meat Shops Charity BBQ Day

and raise funds to help CCFC cure Crohnʼs disease and ulcerative colitis, and improve the lives of children and adults affected by these chronic diseases. To date, M&M Meat Shopsʼ franchisees, customers and volunteers have raised more than $24.3 million for this cause. May 11 was the 25th anniversary M&M Meat Shops Charity BBQ Day, as Canadians enjoyed thousands of hamburgers and hot dogs.

Prime Valley Realty thanked the following for sponsoring gifts: mortgage broker and co-owner of Ottawa Mortgage Advisors Christa Tessier (two gift baskets with a bottle of red and white wine in

each); home inspector and franchise owner for A Buyerʼs Choice Home Inspections Allen Grose ($50 voucher towards a home inspection); and Red Seal chef and owner of Renfrewʼs newest catering company Christineʼs Kitchen Christine Henderson (dozen butter tarts with the purchase of $40 of food or services). Prime Valley Real-

ty made up some gift baskets using large terra cotta flower pots filled with flower seed packets, a milk chocolate candy bar from JJʼs Chocolate Sensations in Renfrew, a PVR corporate pen, and a portable thermal coffee mug. The prizes were won by Mary Flynn of Admaston ($50 home inspection gift certificate), Linda Pitt-Stevens of Hor-

ton (gift certificate for free butter tarts), and Bernie Cheverie of Renfrew (wine gift basket). Jeff Langevin of Ottawa, Bob and Sue Smith of Arnprior, Pat Stubinski of Calabogie, and Sherry Kerr of Arnprior all received a terra cotta flower pot gift basket. Prime Valley Realty is located at 1670 Burnstown Rd.

Renfrew County Reach for the Top junior title goes to RCI Valiyah Khurshid

Renfrew Collegiate Instituteʼs junior team captured the countyʼs Reach for the Top tournament in Pembroke May 8. Reach for the Top is a game show testing studentsʼ trivia knowledge.

The week previous, the team had secured second place, winning three of four matches to advance to the finals. RCIʼs first games in the tournament round-robin May 2 were against General Panet and Madawaska schools. The games were close (some a difference of one or two questions), but the strong RCI team was able to come out on top. The following game RCI played against an intelligent team from Carleton Place. After a tough game, the RCI team was defeated. The team didnʼt lose their optimism however, as win-

ning a game against Opeongo High School advanced RCI to the semi-final tournament the following week. In the semifinals May 8, RCI met undefeated Bishop Smith. RCI answered tough questions to win, 280-190. This advanced them to the finals, where they met last yearʼs champions, Carleton Place. With smart thinking and great teamwork, the RCI team gained and held the lead to win the title game 330-270. RCIʼs championship team consists of Josh Barnes, Findlay Yates-Lavery, Nickie Nagy, Adam Le, Devon Barber and Valiyah Khurshid.

The County of Renfrew assumes no responsibility for paint damage claims from motorists who cross wet paint lines. Facts: • Line painting is done primarily during daylight hours only • Most County Roads and some local municipal roads are painted each year • It takes about 2 minutes for traffic paint to dry • Wet traffic paint on the road may splatter on your vehicle if you cross the centreline before the paint has dried If you encounter a line painting crew on the road:

dents and teachers. The extra workload for both parties is sometimes quite hard to handle. Preparing ahead is one of your best tools as a student. Begin organizing your binders and notes now, while you have plenty of time. Also, start your review of the material learned at the beginning of the semester. Itʼs amazing how much has escaped your brain in only a few months! Get yourself into routine of eating a healthy breakfast and getting enough hours of sleep. The stress of winding down the school year also takes a toll on your body, so treat it well.

Remember that your teachers are some of your most valuable tools when it comes to exams. When you donʼt understand something, make sure you have it explained to you well before the exam date. The end of the school year is only as stressful as you allow it to be. I wish all students writing exams the best of luck during these final days of the school year. On the evening of June 5, St. Joeʼs will be hosting a coffee house. Admission is $5.

DON’T: • Pass, unless the warning signs direct you to do so • Cross the centreline DO: • Slow down and stay well behind the truck • Obey the warning signs on the truck • Be patient • Unless otherwise directed, wait for the truck to pull over before passing If your vehicle is splattered with paint: • Go to a car wash as soon as possible • If the paint does not wash off, spray the affected area with WD-40 and allow it to dry for 2 hours, then rewash the vehicle • If the paint remains, consider submitting a claim to your insurer

Very important, was my Uncle Lou. Didnʼt he just get an award for working on the marble in the Waldorf Astoria in the big city of New York? We even had a chip to prove it. Uncle Lou it was, who at least once a year descended on our farm out in Northcote to bring us unspeakable joy. My motherʼs brother, one of the four who made up her family, had no children of his own when we were youngsters, and when he came it was like Christmas all over again. Although our Christmases back then where nothing to write home about! Uncle Lou often came without telling Mother in advance. She would much prefer if he would at least send us a letter that he was on his way. Then the house could be torn apart from top to

But when he came unannounced, always on a Saturday, we knew he was on his way before he hit the yard. He would start blowing the horn of his big black Buick when he turned into our long lane, and never

let up until he came to a screeching halt at the back door. Mother had time only to change her apron, and smooth back her hair, and then she would cry.

I could never understand if she was so happy why she would cry. My sister Audrey said it was from sheer joy! I thought he looked like he should be a member of parliament. He always wore grey flannel trousers, pressed knife-sharp, and flannel shirts open at the neck. Uncle Lou was tall, and as my sister Audrey once said, he even looks important! See MARY COOK, page 30

Ornaments that enliven, awaken, sometimes defy the lines, like a pathway that conveys us to another perspective. A journey between reality and fantasy. AliA, a new world, a contemporary and unexplored land, where recollections burst forth and flirt with the roaring twenties, art deco, and retro-European. Evoking a past that doggedly takes root in the present time, in the living.” Burnstown resident Denyse Campeau, national director of development for Ovarian Cancer Canada, and National Capital Region Walk of Hope co-chair Lynn Griffiths will be on hand to answer questions and raise awareness of the foundationʼs goals and objectives. In the spirit of the event Taste Funatic chef unnar Guckes of Grassy Bay Getaway, Calabogie will create delectable gourmet hors dʼoeuvres for the occasion. There will also be a draw to win an exquisite Chagnon piece. The event will also showcase many new works of itʼs stable of artists and will also introduce several exciting new ones. ALARMING STATISTICS

Of the 2,600 women diagnosed with ovarian cancer each year in Canada, 70 per cent will not survive five years. With vague symptoms and no early detection test, ovarian cancer is Canadaʼs most fatal womenʼs cancer. Tragically, it takes the lives

of too many of our mothers, sisters and daughters each year, devastating families in its wake. A recent survey of Canadian researchers in the field of ovarian cancer concluded that $10 million is needed to make significant strides towards a reliable early screening test, improved treatments, and enhancing the quality of life for women living with this disease. Yet a recent study by Charity Intelligence Canada shows that only 2.1 per cent of Canadian donations for cancer are directed at ovarian cancer. Research is the only means to overcoming ovarian cancer, but we also need to continue supporting women living with the disease and their families, as well as providing education and awareness for the general public and health care professionals. Unlike so many other causes, the work of Ovarian Cancer Canada is not duplicated by any other group – their work to overcome ovarian cancer and the attention they are now giving to the other gynecological cancers, is unique in Canada. A news release from Bittersweet says: “Together we can give hope to women living with ovarian cancer, hope to their families and loved ones, and hope to all the women in Canada who could potentially face this devastating disease. Together we can dedicate ourselves to the prevention and elimination of ovarian cancer.” Babineau plans to form a team for mini 2.5 and 5-km walk that incorporates the use of the labyrinth that is cut into in the lawn at Bittersweet.

The rural setting and meditative pattern of the labyrinth will provide a unique and intimate environment for such a walk. She is inviting interested walkers to join her team or create a team of their own to raise awareness and fundraise by registering to walking the Labyrinth on Leckie Lane. With enough interest or sponsors the mini walk could evolve to become the Burnstown/Ottawa Valley Region Ovarian Cancer Canada Walk of Hope. If you are interested, contact Cheryl by email at bittersweetartandcraft@gmail.com As incentives, all walk participants names will be entered in a draw to win door prizes donated by gallery artists and members of the community. Furthermore, sculptor Richard Gill will donate a relief sculpture for the leading participant who raises the most funds. (Richard lost both his mother and sister to the disease). The walk will take place in the labyrinth on Leckie Lane on Sunday, Sept. 8, coinciding with the National Capital Walk of Hope in Ottawa. To register go to the website www. ovariancanada.org where more details of the walk and the labyrinth will appear as plans evolve. You will also see updates at www.burnstown. ca/bitterseet/evetns The Allure of AliA opens at Bittersweet Fine Craft and Art on June 1 and runs from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 5 Leckie Lane in Burnstown. The labyrinth that day will also be open to visitors to explore as a walking site. For more details call 613-4325254 daytime or 613-433-9990.

Sonya Bergin, centre, and Jaguar teammates Ashley Hume, back left, and Sadie Partington-Riopelle lead a march downfield en route to capturing the Renfrew County senior girls soccer championship. The Jaguars made it a clean sweep in girls play. St. Joseph’s also earned the 2013 junior girls county title.

The St. Josephʼs Jaguars enjoyed a great day on the soccer pitch at Pembrokeʼs Riverside Park last Thursday. St. Josephʼs teams captured two Renfrew County soccer championships, and very nearly claimed a third. Both girls teams came home victorious while the junior boys were nipped in a shootout thriller. The Jaguars claimed the 2013 senior girls title with a 1-0 win over the Arnprior Redmen. Candace Albanese notched the gameʼs only goal while the shutout was the eighth for keeper Jessie Vaive. St. Josephʼs reached the final with 2-0 wins over both the Opeongo Wildcats and Bishop Smith Crusaders. Ashley Hume had three goals and Rachael Barr a single. The Senior Jaguars hosted the Eastern Ontario (EOSSAA) high school championship this past Tuesday. The Jaguars earned the junior girls

crown with a 3-0 win over the Renfrew Collegiate Raiders, and 2-1 triumph over Bishop Smith in the final. Kim Carter, Anna Holt, Minda Wood and Hannah Robertson handled the St. Josephʼs offence. Brittany Cabral backstopped the Jaguars run to the title. The shutout was her sixth. The Jaguars werenʼt far from adding a boys championship or two to their resume. The junior boys were edged 2-1 by RCI after a six-player shootout. St. Josephʼs struck first before RCI pulled even with 10 minutes remaining. The Junior Jaguars got a pair of second-half goals to outlast the Jeanne Lajoie Chevalier in a quarterfinal match, and then overcame a 1-0 deficit with two late goals to defeat the Mackenzie Mustangs 2-1 in the semifinal. The senior boys were clipped 1-0 by Bishop Smith in the semifinal, but have qualified for EOSSAA. The Jaguars blanked Opeongo 2-1 in the quarterfinal. Hayden McIntyre and Cole Rochon scored in support of Evan Naismithʼs shutout netminding.

VICE FIRST AT EOSSAA

The Jaguars efforts at the EOSSAA track and field championships in Brockville were highlighted by the efforts of six athletes who have qualified to take the next step up the 2013 track and field ladder. Peter Vice won the senior boys long jump with a personal best 6.02 metres, and was fourth in the triple jump at 11.97. Kathryn David, who was the top junior female athlete a week earlier at the Renfrew County championship in Arnprior, was second in the 400 metres with a time of 1:03.97, fourth in the 200m in 27.94, and sixth in the 100m in 13.94. Sarah Power was second in the midget girls discus at 26.07 metres. All athletes in the top five advance to the East Regional meet in Belleville this week. Laura Troutman will join Vice and David in two events. She was fourth in the junior girls javelin at 25.97 meters, and fifth in the high jump at 1.25 metres. Mike Vice was fourth in the senior boys high jump. He cleared the bar at 1.70 metres.

The Renfrew Collegiate Raiders are Renfrew County junior boys soccer champions. The Raiders captured the 2013 title in dramatic fashion last Thursday, outlasting the cross-town rival St. Josephʼs Jaguars 2-1. Grady Zohrʼs goal in the sixth round of the match-deciding shootout provided RCI with its margin of victory. The shootout followed two sudden-death overtime periods of scoreless soccer. After a St. Josephʼs marker gave the Jaguars a 1-0 lead early the second half of regulation, Austin Scheuneman answered for the Raiders. Billy Karras backstopped RCIʼs run to the crown, the schoolʼs first junior title since 2008. RCI topped the Bishop Smith Crusaders 3-2 in the semifinal. Nick Hazen, Phil Kadlec and Dane Brumm were RCI marksmen.

The Raiders hosted the Eastern Ontario (EOSSAA) high school junior boys soccer championship yesterday. All four RCI soccer teams earned the right to compete for a county championship by making the playoffs. A Joel Ferguson goal with five minutes left made it close, but the senior boys were nipped 2-1 in a quarterfinal match by the eventual champion Fellowes Falcons. The Raiders blanked Fellowes 1-0 before losing 3-0 to St. Josephʼs in the junior girls semifinal. Bishop Smith topped the RCI senior girls 4-0 in the quarterfinal.

Cancer survivors were honoured with the annual Survivors Lap prior to the RCI Relay for Life Friday evening at Ma-Te-Way Park.

RCI Relay for Life raises $90,000 in the fight against cancer peter.clark@metroland.com

Renfrew Collegiate Instituteʼs Relay for Life continues to make itself a tough act to follow. The May 23-24 event at Ma-Te-Way Park raised more than $90,000 in memory of former RCI student Hillary Afelskie, who played a major role in previous Relay for Life events during her time at the school. Organizers had set a goal of $110,000, but none-theless it was another great night of raising funds for the Canadian Cancer Society, although it was a chilly evening once the sun went down. Relay for Life chair Joe Steele welcomed and thanked everyone for coming out to this yearʼs event. “The Canadian Cancer Societyʼs Relay For Life is a celebration of survival, a tribute to the lives of loved ones and a night of fun, friendship and fundraising to help beat cancer,” Steele said. “Tonight we will share many special moments together. We will cheer and celebrate cancer survivors, provide hope and inspiration for those who are currently living with the disease and even shed tears together as we remember and honour our loved ones who have lost their battle with cancer. “Everyone here tonight has made his or her personal commitment to the fight against cancer,” Steele added. He said collecting pledges, helps the Canadian Cancer Society continue to lead in the fight against cancer by funding research

on all forms of cancer, providing credible information on cancer, its treatment and risk reduction, and providing support programs for people living with cancer, their families and friends. “Together our school and community has come together tonight. And together, we will make cancer history,” Steele said. Coun. Jim Miller spoke on behalf of the Town of Renfrew. Having lost two sisters to cancer, he said he knows the consequences it has. He added his appreciation for the selfless efforts put forth by all involved to help combat this disease. Cam Whalen of the Canadian Cancer Society, who also annually attends the RCI kickoff breakfast and assembly, thanked the committee and staff for their continued support with Relay for Life. “Thank you. You are an inspiration. You are why I do what I do,” Whalen added of his work with the cancer society. Whalen also acknowledged the support to Relay for Life from a contingent of students from St. Josephʼs High School. He presented a plaque to the Hillbilly Legacies, a team made up of family members and friends of Hillary Afelskie. The Hillbilly Legacies raised more than $5,000 online for this yearʼs Relay for Life. The Survivor Lap followed the opening ceremonies. Luminaries surrounded the track, and were lit later in the evening, bearing the names of cancer survivors and loved ones who have lost their battle with cancer.

Renfrew, Lanark counties meet in friendly participation challenge Peter Clark peter.clark@metroland.com

The challenge is on! Renfrew County Warden Peter Emon and Lanark County counterpart Bill Dobson officially launched the Silver Chain Challenge Friday afternoon at Neat Cafe in Burnstown. The Silver Chain Challenge is a friendly competition running until June 30 between Lanark County and Renfrew County to promote improved health and well-being in both counties. Residents are urged to dust off their bikes, put on their shoes or participate in any form of active transportation. They can then record their performance, and monitor how the county is doing at silverchainchallenge. ca any time during the month of June. Itʼs the first year that Lanark County has challenged Renfrew County. Partners at the University of Ottawa Heart Institute are promoting and challenging both counties to be more active for healthier hearts. Renfrew Warden Peter Emon encouraged all to get out to bike or walk. “Physical activity doesnʼt have to be really hard work. It can be enjoyable and educational at the same time,” he said. The county has an investment to put proper shoulders on its roads over the next 10-plus years to make walking and cycling safer, Warden Emon added. About 35 cyclists attended from the Renfrew, Arnprior, Pakenham and White Lake areas. As well, Grade 2 and 7 students of Renfrewʼs Our Lady of Fatima School participated in a walk from the Burnstown

Beach to Neat Cafe at the May 24 opening. Said Lanark Warden Dobson to the young kids inside Neat Cafe at the launch, “You people are going to be the most important advocates for us. We really appreciate you being here.” Shawna Babcock, chair of the activity network for Renfrew County, and Jeff Mills, chair of the Mississippi Mills Bicycle Run, are spearheading the challenge. Mills noted that extra points are awarded in various ways; “It very much an appreciative challenge where weʼll give you extra points if you where your helmet. Weʼll give you extra points if you are under 16 because we want to promote children to cycle. Weʼll give you extra points if you are over 65, we want older people to stay active. If you choose your bike over your car to go to the library, to go to work or to go shopping, weʼll give you extra points,” Mills said. One message they want to relay through the challenge is to prevent heart disease, said Jennifer Harris of the University of Ottawa Heart Institute. “One of the biggest ways to do that is by working with the schools.” But awareness includes people of all ages, she said. “For people that are at risk of heart disease, we now have a program where we can support them making those changes that they need to make to try and live a health lifestyle,” She said the Silver Chain Challenge is a great way to start by logging their kilometres in June biking or walking, as well as encourage a non-exerciser in their life to get involved in the challenge.

Olympian John Edwards, a councillor in Lanark County, said itʼs great to see the neighbouring counties working together. He said, you donʼt just go to the Olympics. “Itʼs about enjoying doing something, the physical activity you are doing, enjoying it. It could be canoeing, it could be walking, it could be gymnastics. If something more comes out of it, weʼll celebrate that.” He attended a conference in Finland in 2012, and that country noted that they couldnʼt afford the cost of diseases related to an inactive life style. “They invested in trails, they invested in physical activity. They had to do that. They had absolutely no choice,” Edwards said. “We can bring those ideas here and really make a difference.” Dr. Paula Stewart of Lanark said promoting physical activity outdoors has a tremendous impact. “Kids who are outdoors learn better, there is better focus, more creativity, they get along better, and that applies to adults as well,” Dr. Stewart said. Physical activity also challenges and slows down the aging process, Dr. Stewart said. “Whether itʼs children, whether itʼs adults, whether itʼs seniors, we need physical activity, and we need to be out in nature,” she added. Babcock thanked everyone in advance for their participation in the challenge, and for realizing that trails, roads and shoulders are free and accessible to everybody, are safe, and need to be used. The winning county will receive the Wardens Plate at the conclusion of the challenge.

In addition, a special thank you to Al Knox who generously arranged to bring his limo and dressed-up golf cart for our photo-shoot, along with his brother Everett Knox who positioned the vehicles and kept the cart dry!

Prizes were given to those in attendance and a 50-50 draw was won by Lesley Murray. Thank you to Christine Jarrett and her staff at the pro shop, and Chef Casey Stewart for a delicious meal. Our next theme for our fun night is Beverley Hillbillies on Tuesday, June 11. Please mark the date on your calendar ladies and join us for a great time.

NATURE

Connected to your community

Lawrence and Lorna Thomas at Wilber Lake saw a pair of sandhill

cranes and one of last yearĘźs young in a ďŹ eld near their home. It was the ďŹ rst time they had seen the birds in the area. The cranes are becoming more numerous and more widespread each year. Their large size and loud rattling â&#x20AC;&#x153;kar-r-r-o-o-oâ&#x20AC;? call are two of the best ďŹ eld marks. Cranes do a spectacular mating dance. The birds face each other, leap into the air with wings extended and feet thrown forward. Then they bow to each other and repeat the performance, uttering loud, croaking calls.

We are open every Saturday, Sunday 9:00am - 4:00pm

A â&#x20AC;&#x153;JUST-ABOUTâ&#x20AC;? FINCH

Mary Turcotte had a â&#x20AC;&#x153;just aboutâ&#x20AC;? purple ďŹ nch arrive at her feeder. The plumage that should have been raspberry red was pure white. From the middle of the birdĘźs back to the tip of its tail was normal ďŹ nch plumage. The bird was feeding with other purple ďŹ nches and did not seem to be treated aggressively by them. The bird is referred to as having partial albinism. True albino birds have pink irises, pink skin and pure white plumage. Birds considered to have partial albinism lack one or two of the traits.

The arrival of ruby-throated hummingbirds in early May caught many by surprise, including you know who. Jim and Irma Kobus saw them on the 7th, Peter and Dale Poff on the 13th, Moira Blakeney 15th, and Mae Craig had a note from her daughter in Nanaimo, B.C. and young birds had already hatched by May 14. With the weather being what it is, Jim Anderson suggests you feed the birds â&#x20AC;&#x153;strong drink.â&#x20AC;?

BALTIMORE ORIOLES

Deanna and Randy Joe and Margaret and John Dawson have Baltimore orioles going through the rituals of nesting. The song and the colour of the orioles are their best ďŹ eld marks. It amazes me how such a bright coloured bird with such a loud song can be so difďŹ cult to ďŹ nd in a tree. Sometimes it is not until the birds begin to feed the young and are very active bringing food that the nest can be found.

Sheila McBride heard the call of a saw-whet owl and with the help of her neighbours Bill and Jo-Anne Wendt was able to identify it. This littler owl will call for hours or until he ďŹ nds a mate. Sheila has a great location for birds on ReidĘźs Lake. There is no shortage of sound in the early morning and at dusk. Enjoy your birding.

There are a few bobolinks in the area but many fewer than in past years. Paul Ouellete saw six along the Thompson Road in Horton. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;skunkâ&#x20AC;? bird, as it is often referred to, is the only bird we have that is white above and black below. The yellow patch on the top of its head is an important ďŹ eld mark. It is also partial to rice and gathers in huge numbers in the rice paddies of the southern United States where it was called the ricebird.

Irene and Eric Zimmerling had the pleasure of a visit from a male indigo bunting. There is no doubt that this bird is the most striking of all our birds. The bunting has no blue pigments and is actually black, but the diffraction of light through the feathers makes them appear indigo blue. The maleĘźs song is very distinctive. The sweet sweet, sweet sweet, sweet sweet, notes with the middle two a tone higher than those coming before and after are repeated over and over. The female is extremely secretive and is almost impossible to observe. She does not ďŹ&#x201A;ush from the nest but scurries through the grass until she is well away before ďŹ&#x201A;ying. Her colouration does not help either because she is the same colour as the surrounding vegetation.

The call of the American bittern has earned it the name â&#x20AC;&#x153;old thunderpumperâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;stake driverâ&#x20AC;?. Murden Johnston at Douglas heard one calling from the creek that runs beside the Johnston home. The pumping sound made by the male can be heard a mile (1.6 km) away. The bittern, a medium-sized brown heron, prefers to freeze and trust its concealing colouration when approached rather than ďŹ&#x201A;ush like other herons. When a threat is nearby it will often raise its head, point its bill skyward and sway slowly from side to side as if imitating swaying reeds. A keen eye is required to see this bird in its natural habitat of swamp vegetation.

(3"/%306/%4 Salute to our nurses RVH spent an entire week (May 6–10) honouring our devoted team of nurses as it coincided with National Nursing Week across Canada. The RNAO states, “Nursing Week gives nurses across the world the chance to celebrate the work they do to keep (Florence) Nightingale’s work alive by advocating for policies that keep people healthy, and care for them when they’re ill.” On behalf of our community, RVH administrators and managers coordinated special events and presentations to show our appreciation for their expertise and genuine compassion for our patients. To kick off nursing week, cake and coffee was available for all staff on Monday. Tuesday staff was invited to attend a seminar with special guest speaker Karen McEwen about Decision Making at the End of Life. “As nurses, we all spend a great deal of time listening to the patients and their families’ story, it’s important that

you don’t forget your own story in the process,” reminded McEwen, Director of Professional Practice and Policy at Pembroke Regional Hospital. Wednesday everyone enjoyed a hot breakfast sponsored by Acart, followed by an ice cream sundae bar on Thursday afternoon. Dr. George Hermanson led an intimate discussion with a group of care providers on Thursday as they navigated protocols and personal value systems that influence decisions in caring for patients during an Ethics Talk. “Ethics are a way of looking at the world that stands behind protocols,” explained the RVH Chair of the Ethics Committee. And the salute to nurses concluded with a Greek Toonie Lunch on Friday, sponsored by Spacelabs. Throughout the week, daily draws for prizes were presented courtesy of the Ontario Nurses Association, CUPE and the RVH Administration.

cle Louʼs safe trip to New York. And when it came time for our silent prayers each of us were expected to say before we left Motherʼs knee, I would pray that Uncle Lou would return soon. And it wasnʼt only for

the candy, the picture shows and the rides in the big black Buick, it was because his visit would bring Mother unspeakable joy and, for a time, release her from the bonds that held her prisoner on that farm in Renfrew County.

Marlaine Bovair, at left, first-place $250 winner of the Renfrew and Area Home Support raffle for Canadian Tire gift/gas cards May 21, with Jennifer Lane.

We five children never took our eyes off the back seat of the big Buick. We knew for a fact, that inside his big brown cow-hide suitcases would be presents beyond belief. Always, there were yards of silk for Mother. And a new purse. Big. With gold clasps, and long handles. And we had no idea how he knew our sizes, but each of us would get a new piece of clothing, and everything always fit like it had been made for us! Uncle Lou would first stop at a grocery store in Renfrew, and there would be grapes and bananas, and real ham, not like we had in the smoke house, but big slices ... thick ... just right for sandwiches. It would take ages to unpack the Buick. And when it had been emptied, the brothers would carry the cow-hide suitcases up to the room my sister Audrey and I shared, and Uncle Lou would take over the bed, and we would move down to the creton couch in the kitchen. Motherʼs cheeks would be red as tomatoes, and Father, who could never understand what all the fuss was about, would treat Uncle Lou like any other visitor who came out to the farm in Northcote. That meant he would still slurp his tea out of his saucer, and sit with his feet on the oven door at night reading the Ottawa Farm Journal or the

wasnʼt wearing them. My sister Audrey said she was quite sure all important men did the same thing with their shoes when they took them off at night. I couldnʼt for the life of me, ever see my father going to that trouble with the black, laced boots he wore to church on Sunday! And while Uncle Lou was visiting us we would have trips into Renfrew to the picture show ... at least twice during his stay. And we would have cracker jacks to munch on during the movie, and always we stopped for ice cream on the way home at Briscoeʼs General Store, which I was grateful stayed open every night until at least 11 p.m.! Too soon it would be time for Uncle Lou to pack up and head back to New York City. Whole quarters would be thrust into each of our hands, and I knew he would give Mother a few bills too which she would immediately put in the blue sugar bowl with her egg money. Everett would swing wide the gate going out to the lane, and with the horn going full blast, Uncle Lou would spin the tires on the Buick and he was gone. And there would be such a silence in the old log house, and I would wonder if it would ever be the same again. Mother would cry silently, wiping her eyes and blowing her nose into her apron, and that night our prayers would be for Un-

Build your dream home and have a cottage to get away to on the weekends and never leave your property. Good access to the water at the log cabin - over 14 miles of gorgeous river to boat on.

Family Herald and Weekly Star. As the evenings wore on, Mother and Uncle Lou would talk about New York and the many years Mother lived there. And he would tell her about the changes ... how the elevated trains went for miles and miles now, and how a place called the Bronx was the place to live. And Mother would listen wide-eyed and ask questions, and the talk would go on and on. Uncle Lou had a wonderful singing voice, and without fail, every night Mother would get out her harmonica and he would sing and she played. And then she would set the mouth-organ aside and they would sing in harmony ... songs they both knew, and my very favourite was one called, “I had a dream dear”... I thought it was very sad, but beautiful. And sometimes I would see a tear roll down Motherʼs cheek when the song was over. And I knew she would be remembering those happy years when she lived in the city she loved before she left for the backwoods of Renfrew County. Even though Uncle Lou helped Father around the farm, he never seemed to get a mark on those grey flannel pants and shirt. And every night, when he took off his shiny shoes, he buffed them with a cloth made especially for that purpose. And he had wood forms he inserted into his shoes when he

The Algonquin land claim â&#x20AC;&#x201C; capital transfer and lands Principal Negotiator and Senior Legal Counsel for the Algonquins of Ontario

As the Algonquins of Ontario (AOO) continue to work toward a modern day treaty, they look forward to a bright future of self-sufďŹ ciency, economic stability, and opportunities for current and future generations. Key elements of the current preliminary draft agreement-in-principle (AIP), released on Dec. 13, 2012 by the AOO, Ontario and Canada, include a capital transfer and land component. These elements are essential to build a long-term sustainable future for the Algonquin people, and respond to present day social, cultural and economic needs. The preliminary draft AIP states Canada and Ontario will transfer $300 million to one or more Algonquin institutions, which will be trusts established for the beneďŹ t of the Algonquin beneďŹ ciaries. These funds will be transferred in three pay-

ments over a two-year period starting on the effective date of the ďŹ nal agreement. Income generated from the capital transfer will make a real and positive difference in the cultural and societal fabric of the Algonquin people by removing barriers for the creation of economic opportunities and social support programs. These funds will also lay a foundation for a rewarding and vibrant future for Algonquin youth by increasing employment opportunities and access to education and training. The Algonquin institutions that will receive, manage and invest this capital will be transparent and accountable to all Algonquin beneďŹ ciaries. The AOO will develop the governance structure, mandates and powers of these Institutions to ensure the most effective protection of all beneďŹ ciariesĘź interests. Land has been critical to the way of life for the Algonquins and will play an important role in the cultural recognition and

future economic sustainability of the AOO. The preliminary draft AIP establishes that Ontario will transfer not less than 117,500 acres of provincial Crown Land to one or more Algonquin institutions. This lands package consists of more than 200 parcels of land ranging in size from a few acres to more than 30,000 acres. The AOOĘźs proposed land selections were each chosen for these purposes: â&#x20AC;˘ Historical/spiritual; â&#x20AC;˘ Community recreation and environmental protection; â&#x20AC;˘ Economic development, resources, tourist commercial; and, â&#x20AC;˘ Future institutional, residential, industrial development. The provincial Crown Land in the settlement area is 3.3 million acres. Nearly two million acres constitutes provincial parks, including Algonquin Park (1.8 million acres), where the AOO will have extensive management planning input. This leaves approximately 1.3 million acres

of provincial Crown Land to be considered for AOO land selections. The proposed lands package comprises approximately four per cent of the provincial Crown Land in the land claim settlement area. Through the transfer of this land, existing access to cottages, private properties, or navigable waterways will not be lost or compromised, and no new First Nation reserves will be created. A treaty will provide economic development opportunities that will not only beneďŹ t the AOO, but will also provide a tremendous beneďŹ t to our neighbours living within Eastern Ontario. This column is the second in a series providing insights into Algonquin history, the foundation for the land claim, elements of the Preliminary Draft AIP and next steps in the journey. The next column will focus on the Parks and Protected Areas component of the Preliminary Draft AIP. Visit www.tanakiwin. com for more information.

Her face will be familiar to music fans as she last woman standing on the reality TV show Rockstar:INXS. Based out of Toronto, the 36-year-old has been focusing on her musical career since 2006, but rose to fame with her single ʻBelieveʼ. It quickly gained renown and was used as an intro for several television shows including The Biggest Loser and Beauty and the Geek. Its fame peaked as a promo to help raise funds for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. She was also nominated for a 2008 Canadian Radio Music Award and the 2008 Best New Artist JUNO award.

Priorpalooza organizers have announced Suzie McNeil will headline the festival. ferred a local artist to headline the festival, McNeilʼs powerful vocals help fade away any reticence they had of choosing her to wrap up the day-long musical celebration.

p.m. Local musicians chosen for the festival cover all sorts of styles from gospel/blues to country/folk to classic rock. The festivities will be held at the Robert Simpson Park and in addition to the music there will have all sorts of amusements.

Mahusky to perform in Wizard of Oz Lawrence Mahusky of Renfrew is performing in the musical The Wizard of Oz with the Two Rivers Production in Arnprior. Mahusky, in the role of the cowardly lion, is wickedly funny and has the voice of an angel. The story is written by author L. Frank Baum. The music and lyrics are by Harold Arlen and E.Y. Harburg. Take your family on a funfilled journey down the yellow brick road where lions sing, tin men talk, and scarecrows dance. Children of every age are reminded that in all the world, there is no place like home. Whisked away by a swirling tornado, 12-year-old Dorothy, her dog, and even her Kansas farmhouse sail over the rainbow and into the dazzling Land of Oz. Filled with

playful munchkins enchanted forests and endless surprises, this dream-come-true world is one great adventure after another. The most wondrous adventure of all begins when Dorothy and her new-found go in search of the Kingdomʼs mysterious wizard, and the secret that will lead her home. Mahusky considers himself extremely fortunate to have been part of the cast of good stage productions like Babies in Ottawa and Little Shop Of Horrors. Praises go out to the director, Ron Gardiner, and the musical director, Lisa Webber. In October 2003 Mahusky released his CD Lawrence Mahusky Live! The CD is a collection of musical theatre hits. Mahusky describes his act-

ing and singing roles in stage productions as his second career with his first being educational assistant at Renfrew Collegiate Institute. Mahusky says he is happy to be performing the cowardly lion and dedicates his performances in the memory of his parents, brother Charlie, sisters Laura, Shirley, nieces Jenna, Judy, nephew Carter and his drama students at the Renfrew Recreation Centre. “Catch our spirit. Come to our shows,” he says. Performances at Arnprior District High School are Thursday, June 6 and Friday, June 7 at 7 p.m., and Saturday, June 8 at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. Get reserved seating online at www.tworiversmusicals.ca.

Renfrew County Fiddlers celebrate 35 years June 9 Agnes Walkers RCFA membership secretary

The Renfrew County Fiddlers celebrate 35 years as an organization, promoting and assisting the advancement of ďŹ ddle and all forms of old time music, particularly in this county of ours. In June 1978, Joe Quilty, known for his love of old time music and an excellent, lifetime ďŹ ddle player himself, decided to reintroduce the Valley Heritage ďŹ ddling, stepping and square-dancing back throughout the Ottawa Valley. With the help of his dear wife Madge, Ed Mayhew, George Thacker, Mike Quilty, Reg Hill, L.J. Helferty, Tom Sharbot and Debbie Emon, they formed the Renfrew County FiddlersĘź Association. Throughout the years, the association has provided many ďŹ ddling jamborees, as well as ďŹ ddling and step dancing competitions, ďŹ ddle workshops, square dancing lessons, etc. Many trophies were handed out during those 35 years. Trophies still are provided

for the Grand Master Fiddle Championships and the Pembroke Fiddle & Step-dancing competitions. This organization continues to provide monthly dances, as well as entertainment for fairs, church suppers, private parties, and dinners up and down the Ottawa Valley. During those 35 years the Renfrew County Fiddlers have promoted and encouraged many young ďŹ ddlers to succeed their goals. Some of these young ďŹ ddlers, whom they promoted and encouraged, have become outstanding ďŹ ddlers today, such as April Verch, Dennis Harrington, Ian Hamilton, L.J. Helferty, Terri-Lynn Mahusky, Beckie Childerhose-Holmes, Robbie Dagenais, Kyle Felhaber, Megan Patrick, Andrew Walker and others. For the past ďŹ ve years, the association has chosen and promoted young junior ďŹ ddlers such as Andrew Walker from Renfrew, Amy Felhaber of Eganville (a winner), Luke Etmanskie of Wilno, Joseph Gervais of Westmeath (a winner) and Brendan Cybulskie from Round Lake (a winner) as candidates for the Danny OĘźConnell Award.

38 The Renfrew Mercury EMC - Thursday, May 30, 2013

The association has been led by 10 presidents: the ďŹ rst being Joe Quilty for four years, Sheldon Church for two, Kenneth Spence six, Melton Symington two, Dennis Harrington ďŹ ve, Murray Spence four, Dalton Hein four, Barry Martin ďŹ ve, Don Madigan one, and Evelyn Lehman for two years. The membership for this association averages over 200 members. These members are very dedicated people. The Renfrew County FiddlersĘź Association sincerely thanks all of its members, its ďŹ ddlers and other musicians, past and present, for all the support they have given to promoting this ďŹ ne, enjoyable music. Our current president, Mary Wright, invites all members, musicians, past members and musicians as well as all old time music lovers to come join us Sunday, June 9 at the Renfrew Armouries from 1 to 6 p.m. to help celebrate our 35 years as an organization. Everyone come, bring your families and enjoy the free afternoon ďŹ lled with great music from musicians who have supported us in the past, as well as the present, and renew old friendships.

Watson in concert June 7

High praise from his peers “Gene Watson is one of my all-time favourite ballad singers ... the way he belts out a ballad, it just doesn’t get any better than that.” – George Jones “Just when I think country music is a lost art form, something by Gene Watson catches my ear and I can breathe again.” – Rodney Crowell “As a singer in a beer joint band, I survived many late night Texas & Oklahoma honky tonks by hosing the rowdies down with a late night Gene Watson song. He’s one of the all time, great classic country singers. ‘Got No Reason Now For Going Home’ has a permanent place on my play list. To this day he is known as a singer’s singer in Nashville. Gene is a special artist. The trail that he forged made it possible for a lot of us to be where we are today.” – Ronnie Dunn (Brooks & Dunn) “In my dad’s eyes, I hadn’t really made it in the music business until now. I’ve sung with Gene Watson.” – Lee Ann Womack “I would be hard pressed to find anyone who didn’t want to sing with Gene Watson. This man is a real country singer.” – Vince Gill “I have too many (favourite singers) to name, but Gene Watson would be right around the top of the list.” – Ray Price

Celebrate 50 years of classic country music with Gene Watson and the Canadian Farewell Party Band Friday, June 7 at the RCAF #433 Wing in Renfrew. Tickets are available at www.TicketWeb.ca or www.GreenTomato,ca Watson is the torch bearer for traditional country music. In his nearly 50 years in the music business, Watson has amassed seven No. 1 country hits, 23 Top Tens, over 75 charted songs and 49 albums. His first single was released in 1962 and today, Gene Watson remains one of country musicʼs greatest ambassadors. Watson is one of the rare singers who still sings in the same key as he did 30 years ago and his audiences respond with standing ovations night after night when he nails the octave jumping last note on his most requested song, the now country classic, Farewell Party. In 2012 Gene released a re-recorded collection of 25 Greatest Hits titled Best of the Best to great critical acclaim. Noted journalist John Lomax III gave it a Best of 2012 award for Watsonʼs remarkable ability to recreate the recordings with such care that itʼs nearly impossible to tell the originals from the re-recorded versions some 30 years later. Watsonʼs 2009 album A Taste of the Truth received Album of the Year from a national critics and fan vote, including one award for Album of the Decade. The Citadel Mediaʼs Real Country Radio Network awarded Gene Watson the title of 2010 Legend of the Year from their national fan voted contest, beating such stalwarts as Reba McEntire, Alan Jackson and Randy Travis. Watsonʼs country classics include Love In The Hot Afternoon, Paper Rosie, Farewell Party, Should I Come Home (Or Should I Go Crazy), When We Were Down To Nothing (Nothing Sure Looked Good On You) and Fourteen

Youths!

Gene Watson is the torch bearer for traditional country music. Carat Mind, just to name a few. On his 2009 album release A Taste of the Truth, Gene Watson and Rhonda Vincent scored a No. 1 for their single Staying Together. Vincent and Watson went on to record an all duets album in 2010 which has proved to be a fan favourite. Considered one of the finest pure-country singers of his generation and known as The Singerʼs Singer, Watson offers up one of the best traditional country shows in the business. His stunning voice captivates audiences and keeps his fans coming back again and again. “Gene Watson is as authentic as Texas rain and is a true master of thecountry song.” – Marty Stuart “I have to say that Gene Watson, along with Vern Gosdin, is one of the best country music singers to come along since Hank Williams, Senior.” – Mel Tillis

Local Scoutrees project lives on in Burnstown The local Scouting movement has just finished its Scoutrees fundraiser for Renfrew Beavers, Cubs and Scouts. The Beavers, Cubs and Scouts planted 200 white pines on a volunteerʼs property on May 11, 2013. The trees this year were donated by Ontario Power Generation and the organizers thank OPG as they didnʼt have a location to

plant this year and they offered to donate the trees. The scouting movement looks for volunteers each year to purchase trees which the youth are extremely happy to show up and plant for them. “We are currently looking for any interested people for 2014 that would like us to plant trees for them!” said Christie Freemark,

“Currently we are accepting early registration for Beavers, Cubs and Scouts for the 2013/2014 Scouting Season which runs from September 2013 to May 2014. “We are holding a registration night at St. Thomas School on May 29 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.,” she said. More information is available at renfrewbeavers@gmail.com.

Charlie Loving you and looking after you for 14 years, was not long enough. You were a little kitten when you came into our lives, cuddly warm and very loving, up to the day you passed away, due to illness. Our hearts are terribly broken without you Charlie, you and Murphy together will be able to play again in Pet Heaven, like you did when he was here with us.

Loving you forever and a day Mom & Dad DEATH NOTICE

Writing my own happy ending with CHEOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s help

By Vienna Arbic with Isabelle Mailloux Pulkinghorn

My name is Vienna and I am nine years old. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in grade three, play defense on my hockey team, and enjoy doing crafts and writing stories. I love spending time with my parents Sherry and Richard Arbic, and my friends. And I have cancer. My â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;realâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; life had to be put on hold while the doctors at CHEO help me get rid of cancer. Mine is called Germ cell tumor, a very rare form of brain cancer - and I want it to go away. If this were a story I came up with, there wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be a port-a-cath, operations and chemotherapy

involved. I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need lumbar punctures and I could be home with my parents and my dogs instead of in the hospital. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be playing hockey and graduating grade three with everyone in my class. If this were a story I made up, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be funny like the Robert Munsch books that I love so much. But cancer is serious.

they knew something was wrong with me, had it not been for the concussion itself and for the team of CHEO neurologists, endocrinologists and oncologists who care for me, my story could have had a sad ending.

One day at hockey practice I hurt my head and ended up with a concussion. I had all the classic symptoms, and even after the prescribed rest period I was not getting better. I was sleeping 18 hours a day, falling asleep at school and again later in the afternoon. I had severe headaches that even the pain medicine would not relieve. I had no short-term memory and my parents say I just wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t myself.

But now, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hope.

Chemotherapy is not fun - it actually makes me very sick. I lost my hair and I look very different because of the cortisone, but it is helping me get better. It is shrinking the size of my tumor, and that is great news! Once the last cycle of chemotherapy          reduce the tumor even more and hopefully make it So my parents took me to CHEO. An go away forever. I hope weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re done by the end of endocrinologist ordered a CT scan and it detected the summer so I can start my hockey season and go a tumor in the center of my brain that was pressing back to school. Mom and dad have already found against my thyroid, pituitary and hypothalamus special hockey equipment that will protect my port             (where the doctors inject the medications). Vassilyadi, a CHEO neurosurgeon, installed a             I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait to get back to my real life. Until then, I will take my medicine, continue chemo and rest so pressure; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when I started to feel much better.         The oncologists told us that Germ cell tumors in the brain are very rare but the good news is that they Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funny because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always wanted to become usually respond well to radiation; although some do a doctor when I grow up. Now, as mom says, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m need a mix of radiation, chemotherapy and surgery. getting an insiderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s view and that will help make me be a great doctor someday. I also want to keep In my case, we quickly started with chemotherapy. writing, so maybe Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll become a doctor-writer. But Had it not been for my parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; persistence to one thing is certain: my stories will always have push for physicians to investigate further because happy endings. Just like this one will.
