The TEAM Highway 17 committee stands for Taking Effective Action to Manage Highway 17, and thatʼs exactly what committee members are looking to do. In fact, some recommendations from the committeeʼs April meeting have already been given the green light, meaning road improvements will be made along a threekilometre section of the highway near Haley Station. The committee, which was formed last year following a continuation of accidents, including a fatality at Haley Station, has examined what changes might be needed to make the two-lane Highway 17 safer. The committee, which consists of Ontario Ministry of Transportation officials, Ontario Provincial Police representatives and Renfrew County engineering and public works director Dave Darch, intends to meet three or four times a year. At its last meeting, April 9 in Kingston, the committee reviewed several sections of Highway 17 that are of current or potential concern. Discussion focused on the Haley Station section, between Chenaux Road and Yonder Hill Trail. See HIGHWAY, page 2

Contributors to Adopt-a-Road program recognized Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

Renfrew County council and staff gathered to thank the volunteers who help keep more than 100 kilometres of county roads a lot cleaner than they would otherwise be. At the May 29 meeting of county council, 18 groups or individuals were recognized with Adopt-a-Road program certificates that said, “Thank you for helping to keep Renfrew County beautiful.” “This is an opportunity to partner with our community, with our taxpayers, and to endeavour to keep our county beautiful,” said public works and engineering director Dave Darch. “Weʼre proud that we have this program, and equally, if not more, proud of the volunteers who have come forward to look after our roads,” added Darch. Presenting the certificates were Arnprior county councillor and operations committee chair Walter Stack and Renfrew County Warden Peter Emon. FIRST CERTIFICATE

Accepting the first certificate were She is joined, from left, by Whitewater Reeve Don Rathwell, Renfrew County Warden Peter Emon and WalGrace Yantha-Blimkie and Frank ter Stack, the county’s operations committee chairman. Blimkie for the Glasgow Womenʼs Instituteʼs adoption of McLean Drive in McNab-Braeside. Yantha-Blimkie said WI members and their husbands do garbage pickup twice a year on their adopted road “because we care and we do good work in the community.” Another McNab-Braeside Adopt-aRoad contributor was the Burnstown Womenʼs Institute for upkeeping a portion of Burnstown Road, while Greater Madawaska had two groups recognized – Isobel and Miklos Kristijan on Centennial Lake Road and Calabogie Motor Inn for tending to Lanark Road. Another volunteer recognized was Renfrew and District Christian School, whose students and staff look after the section of Bruce Street west of the entrance to the landfill site. “We started (Adopt-a-Road) because we wanted to do something for the community and be part of the town and do our part to keep the town and area clean,” said school principal Sabrina Vandersleen. The principal said itʼs also a well-

organized project because the county provides equipment for the garbage pick-up and follows up to take the garbage to the appropriate landfill or recycling facilities. The county provides garbage and recycling bags, rubber gloves, safety equipment and training. The Adopt-a-Road program kicked off in 2005, with a $10,000 start-up grant from Renfrew County Community Futures. County operations manager Steve Boland, who co-ordinates Adopt-aRoad, says the program was created in the face of mounting calls about roadside litter. “The idea,” said Boland, “was to try to reduce litter and develop some pride in the community, and I think itʼs done that, and to make Renfrew County beautiful.” 700 STILL UNADOPTED

While more than 100 kilometres of roads adopted, about 700 kilometres still remain unadopted. Those inter-

ested in adopting a road are asked to call public works at 613-732-4353. Other Adopt-a-Road volunteers recognized included the Whitewater Roadrunners for looking after Main Street in Cobden and Valley Heritage Radio Station for adopting part of Burnstown Road in Horton Township. Others awarded certificates were Madonna House, Dafoe Road in Madawaska Valley; Petawawa Rotary Club, Petawawa Boulevard in Petawawa; Petawawa Community Policing members Curly and Eleanor Andrews, Cully Walton and Chuck Collotte, for looking after Laurentian Drive; Hugliʼs Blueberry Ranch, Greenwood Road and White Water Road in Laurentian Valley; the Plume-Grylls family for Westmeath Road in Whitewater Region; the Adam family for Beachburg Road in Whitewater Region; Jamieson Travel for another section of Beachburg Road; and three different groups for tending to parts of Round Lake Road (or County Road 58). Those

were Terry Morgan, Des and Barb Brunelle and family, and Killaloe Radio Station. In all, Boland said the Adopt-aRoad program features 42 volunteer groups or individuals. Others include Madawaska Valley District High School, Sister Elizabeth Berrigan of Stillpoint House of Prayer, Dochart Estates Community Association of McNab-Braeside, the County of Renfrew and Westmeath Public School. REDUCED ROADSIDE LITTER

“Over the last seven years, one of the benefits of the program is that we have seen a reduction in the amount of litter on the side of the road,” added Boland, surmising that posted Adopt-a-Road signs have helped reduce the temptation to litter.

Highway

Continued from front

After removing animal-related collisions, it was determined this section of highway is exhibiting a higher number of loss-of-control collisions than expected. As a result, Darch says the following interim measures will be implemented on that section of the highway: • installation of centreline and edge line rumble strips; • installation of Chevron signs to indicate the need to reduce speed; and • general consolidation of signs. MTO is also considering fully paving highway shoulders in this section, to mitigate loss-of-control collisions and to provide slip-around locations for vehicles passing left-turning vehicles. The committee members learned many collisions are happening at the Haley Road intersection, but also on the horizontal curves in the same area. These curves are generally tighter than other curves on Highway 17, says the committee meetingʼs summary for county council. It was also agreed a long-term study is needed to examine long-term solutions, since the highwayʼs four-laning well past Arnprior may not be implemented for a number of years. The committee also looked at possible Highway 17 changes at the Anderson-Miller Road and Goshen Road intersections. In both cases, it was agreed the creation of left-turning lanes would not mitigate collisions. These conclusions were drawn after removing the incidence of animalrelated accidents. The committee also discussed possible changes to Highway 17 from 3.5 kilometres west of Murphy Road to the Petawawa-Chalk River boundary. The committee decided no more remedial action was needed. The committee also discussed the section west of Yonder Hill Trail to the eastern limits of Cobden. After removing animal-related collisions, it was determined thereʼs a greater number of vehicular collisions than expected, and that many are rearend collisions in the eastbound passing lane. Ministry staff indicated it will research this section to determine the causes of collisions, since they do not appear associated with entrances or intersections. Committee members also indicated the area could use more police enforcement. The TEAM Highway 17 committee meets again July 10.

County council to name acting warden Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

Renfrew County council has approved the position of acting warden, as recommended by Warden Peter Emon. The acting warden wonʼt be named until January 2014, in keeping with the approval process for amending the countyʼs procedural bylaw. This county councillor would attend ceremonial functions or events in the wardenʼs absence. Immediately following the inaugural session of county council, in January 2014, the warden may recommend a member of county council for the position.

That person would be compensated on a perdiem basis for events or functions attended. Admaston-Bromley RayeAnne Briscoe told Emon his recommendation was a “dream of a good idea … because we canʼt all be 10 places at once.” At least twice since January, Emon has had to miss community events because of conflicting committee meetings. Also, noted Emon, “If for some reason the warden of the day canʼt be at county council, then the acting warden would be appointed by motion to chair the meeting that day.” Emon is serving his first term as warden.

Back at it again on Matawatchan Road Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

Renfrew County had a 3.4-kilometre section of Matawatchan Road surface treated only last fall, but the same section is going to be resurfaced this summer. The operations committee took a “calculated risk” by deciding to surface-treat the road in October 2012, following delayed utilities work and weather issues, said Dave Darch, the countyʼs director of public works and engineering. The project was approved at the May 29 session of county council, where Darch described the need to deal with the premature deterioration of the original job. The fall weather was colder than antici-

pated and the usual curing process didnʼt happen, said Darch. The road is located in Greater Madawaska Township, near the villages of Matawatchan and Griffith. The reasoning behind the original decision to surface-treat the road so late in the fall had to do with concerns over leaving the surface-treatment until the spring while still trying to maintain a gravel road in the winter, said Darch. Consequently, the county has approved the spending another $110,000 to complete the project. A total of $35,000 is allocated for hot-mix asphalt patching where the surface treatment has deteriorated the most. The remaining $75,000 will be for a completely new surface treatment. Review of the project this spring revealed

several sections about a metre in diameter had lifted from the gravel undersurface, but also one 300-metre section of surface treatment that had not adhered to the underlying gravel base. Last yearʼs establishment of a granular base, shaping and a surface treatment was about $200,000 “The reason itʼs cheaper (now) is you donʼt have to put your granular A back on,” said Darch. The work will be done by Pembrokeʼs Greenwood Paving, which did last fallʼs resurfacing. If the money canʼt come entirely from the 2013 capital works program, it will be funded from the Provision for Unallocated Funds budget. The county has been doing upgrades to Matawatchan Road the last few years.

Let’s acquire CP railway bed first, says Sweet Steve Newman

The Canadian Pacific railway tracks have been pulled up in Renfrew County, but it remains to be seen who will own the railway bed. The assessed value for the 185-mile corridor, that runs through Papineau-Cameron Township, Renfrew County and Lanark County, has yet to be determined. But Petawawa Mayor Bob Sweet, who is part of those discussions, says Canadian Pacific wishes to continue discussions with the three parties, to determine the railway bedʼs future owner. During the May 29 meeting of county council, Sweet stressed that discussions remain very preliminary. The same words were used in an April 25, 2013 letter to Pembroke Mayor Ed Jacyno who has not been part of the group discussions. That same letter was included in the May 29 county package. See CP RAIL, page 21

Finally, a deputy-clerk Renfrew is upgrading its part-time position of administrative assistant to full-time deputy clerk. The proposed rate of pay will be $43,043 to $57,403 for the non-union job that is based on 1,820 hours per year. The previous position was for 1,000 hours. Comparable salary ranges for the deputy-clerk position in four Renfrew County municipalities ranged from a low of $52,470-$64,537 in Petawawa to a high of $64,732$75,380 in McNab-Braeside. In McNab-Braeside, the deputy-clerk is also responsible for landfill and treasury issues. “The committee fully endorses this position and filling it at a high, competent level,” said Coun. Gail Cole, who chairs the administrative committee. “I felt it was time again to address the staffing needs of my department,” said Renfrew clerk Kim Bulmer at Renfrew council May 27. He made similar recommendations in 2005 and 2009. He said an employee had occupied the part-time deputy clerkʼs position from 2009 to June 2012, before taking medical leave and resigning late last year. Since then, the town has filled the position through a part-time employee contract. See DEPUTY-CLERK, page 21 4 The Renfrew Mercury EMC - Thursday, June 6, 2013

ItĘźs a bill likely unite all three parties at QueenĘźs Park even if critics say it will divide Canadians. Jack MacLaren says he is getting plenty of support all around for his private memberĘźs bill to prevent Quebec construction companies from bidding on Ontario contracts. The PC MPP for Carleton-Mississippi Mills introduced the Fairness is a Two-Way Street Act in the legislature on May 29. It made it through the ďŹ rst reading. Although private memberĘźs bills rarely become law, he is conďŹ dent this one – similar to one passed when Mike Harris was premier in 1999, but killed by the Liberals in 2006 – will. “I think weĘźll get support from all three parties,â€? MacLaren said. “They realize it is not fair.â€? If the bill makes it past third reading, construction projects on the Ontario side will be off limits to Quebecers. While there is no formal ban of Ontario contractors on the Quebec side, MacLaren said he hears regular-

ly from locals who ďŹ nd the red tape and other hurdles make it next to impossible to win Quebec contracts. “ItĘźs a bit of tit for tat,â€? he added. “We are protecting our rights and Ontario jobs.â€? Critics say it is unconservative to promote what amounts to protectionism. MacLaren appears willing to take the heat to force QuebecĘźs hand. He said if they make it easier for Ontario contractors, he is willing to do the same for QuebecĘźs. Ottawa is lucrative for Quebec contractors with hospitals, businesses and more needing work done from time to time, and especially the cityĘźs $2.1 million light-rail project. If the law comes into effect, companies that break it could face a ďŹ ne up to $25,000 a day; workers could be on the hook for $2,000 per day. Among those that would have to change its ways is the City of Ottawa. Last year it hired 30 Quebecers to remove snow instead of Ontario truck drivers. Although the Parti Quebecois governmentĘźs inclination is toward protectionism, the province is reeling from a corruption scandal involving construction companies and may move toward cleaning up the rules in the future.

OPINION

EDITORIAL

Education should be equal We told you so. An award-winning Metroland feature series last year detailed the inequities in schools throughout Ontario. Students in rich neighbourhoods enjoy many extras not available to their counterparts in poorer areas. Schools in better-off areas are much more successful in raising funds than those in districts where the income is lower than the average. As a result, the educational opportunities in the province are not equal. Unfortunately, it results in a vicious circle that helps feed the growing gap between rich and poor in this province and country. Those findings were echoed in a report released this week by the People for Education advocacy group. The study has concluded students from poorer families and areas are not getting the support they need to ensure they have equal access to a wide range of educational services. Be it band, field trips, gifted classes, arts, sports or French Immersion, too many Ontario students are not able to benefit from the specialities that can play such a large part in a studentʼs education. The rising expense of providing such extras,

to the point that educational trips and activities have risen beyond the financial means for many families, has become a major problem for public schools that pride themselves, at least theoretically, on offering equal educational opportunities for all students who want them. Fortunately, smaller communities such as Renfrew tend to rally behind their schools. While the economies of scale dictate smaller schools canʼt offer as many different educational programs as larger schools, at least the strong community involvement helps smooth out the inequities somewhat. However, local business can only support school activities to the degree the community patronizes them, so shop locally if you want educational opportunities to include all our students. The People for Education report concludes that schools shouldnʼt have to rely on the vagaries of parentsʼ income and fundraising abilities to provide necessary programs. Educators should determine what educational opportunities students should have access to, then work out the funding, not the other way around, the group says. Here, here. Thatʼs what our series concluded, too.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Do we need a Senate?

To the editor: The Senate is part of our heritage. But do we need a Senate? We are now going through a period of world recession. We are doing great, but we still have to eliminate jobs to balance the books. Removal of the Senate would be a great benefit, money-wise. We elect our federal MPs. We do not elect Senators. The Senate is now stacked with Conservatives who favour the government majority. So bills, as a rule, pass through the Senate without any problems. We elect our federal MPs and we

trust them, so why do we need an unelected Senate? Our provincial governments donʼt have Senates and they run OK. Now if ever we get serious with thinking about eliminating the Senate, it must be done by a yes or no vote from all of us, I would say, at the same time as the federal election. However, I would really like to know what are the present-day benefits from the Senate, over and above our elected federal government? Will someone answer this, please?

Web Poll THIS WEEK’S QUESTION Are you concerned about your property rights?

A) Yes, they are being increasingly diminished by government.

B) No. I am confident they are sufficiently protected by law.

Jack Partridge Renfrew

C) More

attention should be paid to the long-term common good and the environment should override individual land rights.

D) I am not fortunate enough to own private property, so it is not an issue for me. To vote in our web poll, visit us online at www.yourottawaregion.com/community/ruralnorth

Important that property owners know their rights

To the editor: Last night (May 30) I attended the Official Plan public meeting held in Cobden. I quietly listened to the Renfrew County representatives go into great detail on what their ʻplanʼ is for the economy and growth of Whitewater Township. It was mostly concentrated on the waterfront of Muskrat Lake. Much was said about the water quality with specific reference directed at those who live around the lake, indicating that six per cent of the phosphorous loading contamination was from the septic tanks. Through research it had been identified back in 2005 that 59 per cent of the water contamination resulted from an MNR/MOE approved project allowing ARDA (Agriculture & Rural Development Association) to drain agriculture contaminates from farms in Bromley and Lake Dore watershed flowing into Muskrat Lake via Snake River. However, nothing was mentioned about this very important fact. Their concern was that the Official Plan allow a natural buffer of 66-foot (one chain as noted for those of you who have your Crown Land Patent Grant) around the lake for vegetation.

The Renfrew Mercury News Editor Lucy Hass lucy.hass@metroland.com • 613-432-3655 ext 43 Reporter Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com • 613-432-3655 ext 42 Reporter Peter Clark peter.clark@metroland.com • 613-432-3655 ext 44 Advertising Representative Stephanie Jamieson stephanie.jamieson@metroland.com • 613-432-3655 ext 33 8 The Renfrew Mercury EMC - Thursday, June 6, 2013

It also went on to say that the Official Plan include lands located within 400 metres of the shoreline of Muskrat Lake because the lake is oversupplied with phosphorous nutrients, even though the amount of phosphorous loadings are only six per cent from the lakeshore residents. Implementation of this Official Plan will include monitoring of septic systems implemented through zoning, development agreements and site plan agreements. ʻAgreementsʼ shall include a three-year monitoring program. Question: If you donʼt own it, how can you plan for it? In the Municipal Act it clearly states both for the lower-tier (township) and the upper-tier (county), municipalities have to “acquire public assets to exercise their authority”. How do they acquire? Through agreements! If you enter into an agreement with the municipality, you are signing away your private property rights. They are very careful with the wording: “Agreements shall include a three-year monitoring program”… Thatʼs not saying, the “agreement” will only consist of three years … it could very well be forever.

owners must be acutely aware of what they are signing. Control of the water means control of your property rights, meaning control of you. This is no different than those letters from the government regarding the Conservation Land Tax Incentive Program (CLTIP Policy) dangling the carrot of lowering your taxes, again by signing over your property rights for those who have wetlands for scientific interest. People are losing their property, piece by piece, until there will be none left. Land severances is another one. Thatʼs where they bring in the Species at Risk Act. Those who apply to have portions of their land severed come to learn, through the MNR, that in order to gain approval for the land severance they must ʻagreeʼ that the remainder of their land is a potential for the bobolink nesting place and is zoned as non-developmental. When you start to pay attention to all these new policies and programs that are brought before you, itʼs all about getting control of your private property rights!

PARTICIPATION IN PROTECTED AREA MANAGEMENT PLANNING

The Final Agreement will provide that Ontario will appoint at least one person nominated by the AOO to the On-

and examine Management Plans, Management Statements, Secondary Plans, Natural Heritage Education Programs and any other strategic plans for Protected Areas. ACCESS TO PROTECTED AREAS

The Final Agreement will also deal with access roads, trails, use of motorized vehicles and other access issues in Protected Areas through Protected Area Management Planning processes that consider the maintenance of ecological integrity as well as the Algonquin interest in access to Protected Areas for harvesting. The AOO will work with Ontario Parks and the Algonquin Forestry Authority to develop Forest Management Plans that deal with the construction and decommissioning of forestry roads and water crossings in Algonquin Provincial Park. CULTURAL RECOGNITION IN PROTECTED AREAS

plore the development of a signature project such as a cultural centre, museum or other tourist destination in Algonquin Provincial Park or in another Protected Area, subject to the appropriate feasibility studies. Such a project will recognize the interrelations of the land and the Algonquin way of life, while celebrating Algonquin culture. Fundamental to this Chapter of the Preliminary Draft AIP is the continued sharing of long-standing and effective conservation and management practices by the AOO with their partners. The AOO are committed to ensuring the vitality and future prosperity of all Provincial Parks and Conservation Reserves within the Settlement Area, for the continued use of the AOO and our neighbours. This column is the third 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 existing harvest management practices of the Algonquins of Ontario. For more information visit www. tanakiwin.com.

The Algonquins of Ontario (AOO) have long held a way of life deeply rooted in conservation and ecological integrity. Environmental stewardship of land and resources has been an integral practice of the Algonquins since time immemorial. With the release of the Preliminary Draft Agreement-inPrinciple (AIP) in December 2012, the AOO once again reaffirmed their desire to work with their partners and neighbours to ensure that ecological integrity is the first priority in the management of Protected Areas, specifically Provincial Parks and Conservation Reserves in the Settlement Area. The Preliminary Draft AIP proposes a number of elements to be reflected in a Final Agreement, some of which are highlighted below.

tario Parks Board of Directors. This representation will ensure that the voice of the AOO is heard, and that lessons and practices learned from years of sound management and living in harmony with the land and resources are shared. Should other Boards be established related to Protected Areas in the Settlement Area, the AOO will also have representation. The preliminary draft AIP also proposes that the final agreement will set out three levels of Algonquin engagement in Protected Area management planning: Level 1: The AOO will review and comment on Protected Area Management Plans and Management Statements prepared by Ontario. Level 2: The AOO, as members on the Protected Area planning teams, will participate in the development and amendment of Management Plans and Management Statements. Level 3: In Algonquin Provincial Park and 15 other identified Provincial Parks, the AOO and the Protected Area Manager will work through an Algonquin Planning Committee to jointly develop, amend

BALTIMORE ORIOLES

Margaret and John Dawson have seen Baltimore orioles and heard them singing (both male and female sing) near their home in Douglas. There is no mistaking this species. The brilliant orange and contrasting black make them easy to see but not necessarily easy to find among the leaves. The location of the nest will not found until the adults begin to feed the young and action at the nest increases.

EASTERN KINGBIRDS

Lilian and Dwight Robinson have eastern kingbirds nesting near their home along with Baltimore orioles, eastern phoebes and brown thrashers. With so many birds nesting and feeding young there will be casualties. The young will fall or be pushed from the nest or they may fledge before they are able to fly or the nest may be destroyed by a predator. The best way to help very young birds is to try and return them to the nest. Their parents are the best providers. If they are feathered and capable of short flights they can be kept and fed insects or seed for a few days before being released. If they are injured it is almost impossible to revive them. Should they strike a window and not be injured, they can be held for a short time between your hands and then released. RACING PIGEON

Rod and Meena Ballantyne had a racing pigeon arrive in their yard this week. The bird could fly but only for short distances. It has coloured rings on its legs and is tolerant the Ballantynes but has become disoriented and too weak to make its way home. The bird is being fed cracked corn and in a week or two will be strong enough to find its home loft. Enjoy your birding. Ila and Jim Ferguson, 5313 River Road, RR 5, Renfrew, Ont., K7V 3Z8.

Mary Steele has seen mockingbirds near her home on Gillan Road. The birds were in the same area a few years ago and nested. This species is very aggressive and will nor allow any other birds within several yards of their nest site. The will also attack their own image in the side mirrors of your car and have been known to attach their image in chrome hub caps. Their song, of which there are many versions, including the songs of other species, is the best field mark. They are larger than a robin, black, white and gray in colour and have a long tail.

Scene from the Hawkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eye garage, just in the fold of the tarp like material. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s made of moss and fuzz from cattails. We got a ladder and peaked in and saw five small white eggs. Deanna: The eggs are incubated by the female for 16 days and the young fledge two to three weeks later. If you have phoebes nesting near your home it is very important to completely destroy the old nest (burn it) after the young fledge. This species is prone to infestations of parasites. If the old nest is not destroyed the female will lay a second clutch of eggs in the same nest. The parasites accumulate to appoint where they are a serious threat to the young birds.

WING WEEKLY 59th Annual Charter Night

R0012141435

Birds do not need a fancy birdbath to enjoy a good â&#x20AC;&#x153;splashâ&#x20AC;?. They will drink from and bathe in any kind of shallow container filled with fresh water. Hummingbirds enjoy flying back and forth through the lawn sprinkler. Sharleen Van Woezik caught this purple finch taking his bath on a hot day. If you wish to increase the numbers and variety of birds in your yard a birdbath is the best way to go. The bath should be shallow holding only an inch or so of water. It should be close to a tree or shrub and the thornier the better as it provides shelter and a place to preen. In a wet, bedraggled state birds are slow to become air borne and therefore easy prey for a lurking cat. Clean water is a must; droppings and algae are not healthy items for birds. You can use your own design, a metal lid from a garbage can will do or the inverted lid from an old washing machine is an excellent choice. Just keep it clean, filled with clean water and well sheltered.

Official Plan presented to citizens Lucy Hass

lucy.hass@metroland.com

Whitewater OfďŹ cial Plan (OP) Amendment 11 is all about driving growth in the township. And judging by a public meeting last Thursday night in Cobden, the drive could be a rocky one. The township has set a goal of increasing its population by 10,000 by 2026, and much of the municipalityĘźs development potential lies in the more than 100 kilometres of shoreline along the Ottawa River. To achieve its goal, while preserving the natural environment, the township is considering new models such as cluster and backlot development. The amendment also seeks to address growth on Muskrat Lake, which has been deemed sensitive and has experienced problems with high phosphorous load and algae blooms. Residents have until the end of June to submit a written comment on the proposed amendment.

vegetative state. Site mitigation plans and three-year monitoring plans for development are recommended, plus a 20-metre setback for all development on Muskrat Lake, and 300-metre septic setback. Whitehead also introduced a Muskrat Lake Improvement Council concept whereby a community-driven, arms-length group would help to address water quality issues on the lake. A meeting could be held in July to generate public interest in such an organization. Whitehead said one advantage of such a group is its ability to attract

funding. A lake council, he added, could help to implement strong measures for development controls, for both new development and redevelopment on Muskrat Lake. It could also contribute to a strategy for dealing with septic systems. CITIZEN INPUT

Citizen concerns ranged from declining property values and the negative impact on tourist operations from phosphorous load on Muskrat Lake, to potential restriction on agriculture. See OFFICIAL PLAN, page 12

Monthly Column by

John YAKABUSKI MPP

www.johnyakabuski.com As stated in my last column, the Ontario budget for 2013/14 was tabled on May 2nd. As predicted, the budget contained measures to satisfy the spending demands of Andrea Horwath and the NDP. In fact, they got pretty well everything they had asked for. However in order to keep the drama going Ms. Horwath engaged in a dance of the seven veils, unwilling to say categorically whether she would support the budget while trying to generate as much news coverage as possible. The suspense was officially ended on May 21st when she announced that the NDP would support the budget. The actual vote on the budget motion took place on Wednesday May 29th and the NDP voted with the government, ensuring that the Liberals would survive. While I am sure there are many people who will be saying theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re pleased that we will not be having an election, we need to ask ourselves whether the price of an election was worth what this budget will cost you. The budget will mean approximately an additional $1 billion in spending that was previously unplanned. It means that the debt of Ontario will continue to rise. At the end of this fiscal year it will be $273 billion â&#x20AC;&#x201C; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $20,000 for every man, woman and child living in the province. With the deficit growing to $11.7 billion next year, our provincial debt is rising by over $32 million per day. What else did this budget mean? Well the passing of this budget meant that the NDP who railed endlessly, pretending to be as upset as we were about the gas plant scandals, have decided that the $1 billion dollars wasted is not a good enough reason to bring down the government. Over and over we heard in the legislature from the NDP that they believed this government was officially corrupt; that they were unfit to govern. However, when push came to shove they sided with the government as they did last year. It is unlikely now that this government will face a confidence motion until next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hope that they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do too much more damage before then. It needs to be put into perspective what the debt and deficit issues in Ontario mean. Unless you eliminate the deficit, you cannot begin to chip away at the massive debt that Ontario now owes. The interest payments alone amount to over $11 billion per year. Only the Ministries of Health and Education have larger budgets than the debt servicing costs. By failing to tackle the debt and deficit problems, this budget runs the real risk of causing our credit rating to drop; further increasing the cost to service the debt.

Renfrew County manager of planning Charles Cheesman explained the OfďŹ cial Plan process, describing the document as â&#x20AC;&#x153;one of the bedrocks of planning in Ontario.â&#x20AC;? The goal is to use designations and regulations, â&#x20AC;&#x153;so they all can operate in a harmonious way.â&#x20AC;? Cheesman explained that a steering committee comprised of Whitewater council and citizen representatives Joe Kowalski and Dr. Jim Munroe will review public input and ďŹ nalize the amendment that will go to Renfrew CountyĘźs planning committee, county council and the province for approval. Residents have until the end of June to submit a written comment on the proposed amendment. Citizens who disagree with the amendment can appeal to the province for the matter to go to the Ontario Municipal Board. Brian Whitehead of jp2g Consultants Inc. presented details of the draft amendment to the OP documents that identiďŹ es such signiďŹ cant features as three main agricultural designations, a wealth of sand and gravel deposits, wetlands, the Ottawa River and Muskrat Lake.

It should be pointed out that while the government agreed to additional spending to appease the third party, they made no attempt to find additional savings within the budget to cover those costs. That is the main reason that the deficit will go up this year, rather than down. It canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go unmentioned that Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deficit of $11.7 billion is greater than all other provinces and territories combined. How long can we go on this way without it having a detrimental effect on our ability to function and provide the services that are necessary? Tim Hudak and the Progressive Conservatives have maintained for some time that in order to turn Ontario around, we must get control of our debt and deficit problem. Without a firm commitment to that path we will only see this problem grow. Our children and grandchildren cannot be left to shoulder this burden. This is a time for leadership, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not seeing it from the present government. 0606.R0022067653

Minimal tax hike for ratepayers in Greater Madawaska Township Peter Clark

peter.clark@metroland.com

Greater Madawaska council passed its budget for 2013 at council chambers May 28. For home owners whose $100,000 home rose the average township assessment of 4.5 per cent since last year, their taxes will increase $29.18. A more typical house owner, with a house valued at more than $200,000, would pay more than $58 higher than last year. The budget was presented by CAO clerk-treasurer Allison Holtzhauer and Coun. Brian Hunt, who chairs the ďŹ nance committee. Budget objectives for the next year are to maintain programs and services, optimize sources of revenue, minimize tax increase required for local services, paying down unďŹ nanced capital and debentures, fund new capital projects and create a long-term plan to fund reserves, Holtzhauer noted. Financial challenges are: â&#x20AC;˘ unďŹ nanced capital proj-

That $1,197,100 consists of $36,000 in general government, $113,400 in protection services, and $1,047,700 in public works, which consists of $255,000 in roads, $10,000 in equipment and $782,700 in facilities.

The Renfrew Mercury remains in town, but the printing of the paper has moved to Smiths Falls. The final locally-printed copies of The Mercury came off the press May 27.

Renfrew press falls silent Itʼs 10:30 p.m. Monday, May 27 and this press run is drawing to a close. The last front pages of The Renfrew Mercury printed here in town are just off the press and I grab the final copies. They feel warm. Not physically, but somewhere deep inside where the heart resides. For more than a century the presses have run in this small Valley town, printing a broad range of newspapers and other publications. So, as the massive Global press on Opeongo Road is systematically torn down this week, to rise like a phoenix at our Smiths Falls press facility, I find myself looking back, and dreaming ahead. Because I donʼt believe print is dead. Studies show newspapers are still the medium of choice for information and advertising. In this gone-in-the-flash-ofan-eye digital world, thereʼs a certain comfort in laying back and flipping through the pages of your local paper. I first stepped into The Renfrew Mercury office as a high school student in the late 1970s; a summer student grateful for the opportunity to work with the written word. Memories of those early days are vivid, especially the dramatic background music of the newspaper business four decades ago – clicking typewriters, ringing telephones and the pounding beat of the presses mere feet away from my desk.

Your time is valuable. Spend it wisely.

St. Francis Xavier Parish

LUCY HASS View from The ‘Frew College and work in other towns took me away from The Mercury, but not for long. I returned to a major building expansion that tucked the newsroom upstairs, far away from the song of the press. And that wasnʼt the only change. The click-click-click of electric typewriter keys was soon replaced by the tick-ticktick of computer keyboards. So quiet. Thereʼs something invigorating in the sound of a press starting up and gaining speed, like a locomotive gearing up and steaming into the night. Monday night, May 27, that old feeling returned as I hung out, Tim Hortons coffee in hand, and watched the beginning of the end. I watched as pressmen Blair Crowley, Scott Martin, Erik Lanoue and Sean Steele laboured around the expanse of newsprint and rollers and gears that make up a modern press. To me, our office has always felt like the centre of the printing universe. Other people came to us, not the other way around. Now itʼs someone elseʼs turn to be the focus of production.

shift to Smiths Falls. The Renfrew Mercury has been in town since 1871 when a man named Albert Smallfield was drawn to a village that beamed with potential, as plans were set for rail lines to criss-cross the community. Today, all three lines are torn up and gone, and now the press is leaving. Time marches on. But The Renfrew Mercury newspaper remains here at 35 Opeongo Road, with editorial, advertising and distribution department firmly intact. The very nature of the newspaper business – everchanging and never predictable – gets into your blood. Like the smell of printerʼs ink and newsprint. This past year The Renfrew Mercury was blessed with local, provincial and national newspaper honours for general excellence. And print quality is a key component of that success. So today, all tribute is deflected to the heartbeat of our business – the parade of men in navy blue coveralls and sturdy workboots who have run our press for years. Thanks. You have left a great impression.

Metroland press man Blair Crowley holds one of The Renfrew Mercury final front pages printed on the Renfrew press Monday, May 27. The run marked the end of an era for the Renfrew paper which is now printed in Smiths Falls. Working with Crowley on the Monday-night run were

Printing press was treasured thread in commmunity fabric

velopment and marketing of the linotype was Andrew Devine, scion of one of the pioneer Renfrew families, and who became known in the capital of the United States as one of the most proficient reporters for The Congressional Record.”

Over the years The Renfrew Mercury has been in the forefront of the printing business. Following are just a few of highlights of the press operation in Renfrew. • On June 30, 1871, Albert Smallfield, an Englishman with a family background of journalism, put out issue number one of The Renfrew Mercury. It was a sheet of four pages.

• By 1909 electric power was driving the presses at The Mercury, and the next year still more machinery and equipment was added.

• Early in 1876, the Smallfields moved The Renfrew Mercury and job printing business to a new office in the rear of Halpennyʼs Block, a two-minute walk from the post office, and installed a better press. • On Jan. 25, 1888 there was a disastrous fire as senior editor Albert Smallfield, who lived nearby, awoke about 5 a.m. to find the whole building ablaze. The fire company rushed to the scene with their little hand pumper but there wasnʼt enough water. In those times, before municipal waterworks. As town historian Harry Hinchley recounted in The Story of Renfrew, “So instead of using water, the willing volunteers had to resort to throwing snow at the foundations of the power printing press. They did such a good job because the press, along with the steam engine that drove it, were later able to be repaired. The fire inspector said the fire has been deliberately set as a man had been seen around the Mercury office that night. • Before the end of February 1888, the Smallfields had their presses running in temporary space over Gemmill Bros. store on main street and were again printing in Renfrew. By fall they were putting up a new brick building, just north of the post office where Source for Sports stands today.

Blair Crowley checks the registration using a loupe.

• In 1970 The Mercury amalgamated with The Renfrew Advance and consolidated operations on Opeongo Road, the paperʼs home ever since.

For its first 20 years, The Renfrew Mercury was printed in hand-set type. • On Jan. 2, 1891 The Mercury published issue number 1,000. The editor mentioned that when the paper was founded 20 years earlier, people predicted it would last no more than a few months. The special edition was printed using the technological advances of the time. Part of the paper was composed on the Thorne type-setting machine, which placed individual letters in proper order by mechanism. Other pages were printed from linotype slugs where the letters were cast in a line from a mold; a modern invention that revolutionized the newspaper industry as one man operating the machine could do what five men were accustomed to doing in the days of hand composition. Historian Hinchley noted that “one of the four or five men interested in the de-

• In 1975 fire once again struck the paper as the office was gutted by two fire bombs, resulting in $200,000 damage. As Hinchley observed, “This was a blow to a great many people, for at the time more than 20 weekly papers in Ontario and Quebec were printed at The Mercury. The arsonist was never caught.”

Scott Martin lines up plates for the second section of The Mercury.

• Metroland Media, a division of Torstar, purchased the newspaper from Fred Runge in 2007. Shortly afterwards the printing press was replaced by a Global press. That press is now being disassembled and moved to Smiths Falls where The Mercury will be printed and shipped to Renfrew for distribution. • Owners/publishers of The Mercury included E. Roy Sayles, Hilda Frood and later her nieces and nephews Norm, Boyd, Kent and Elaine (Dick) Wilson. In 1978 D.F. Runge of Pembroke bought the company and his son Fred Runge owned and ran the newspaper chain until its purchase in 2007 by Metroland Media.

Fly-in, drive-in breakfast Sunday Steve Newman

PETER CLARK/METROLAND

Benefit for Zach A benefit dance for 20-month old Zachary Quackenbush was held at the Royal Canadian Legion Renfrew Branch 148 May 17.

four. There is no cost for admission or parking. The designated egg guy, Dennis Yakaback, who has cooked an estimated 30,000 eggs over the last three decades of fly-in breakfasts, will be among volunteers preparing the breakfasts on-site. Yakaback says youngsters and adults are welcomed to visit the airfield, where they can meet the pilots and take a closer look at the aircraft. There will be several dozen small airplanes, including some home-built designs. The fly-in event runs from 7 to 11 a.m.

Make The Move To Arnprior!

The Allure of Alia fundraiser for Ovarian Cancer Canada is this Saturday, June 8 at Bittersweet Gallery, not June 1 as reported in last weekʼs Renfrew Mercury. Egg luminaires – candles made by filling empty eggshells with soy and bees wax – will once again be given as an exclusive gift to those who donate, sponsor a walker in the Sept. 8 Ovarian Cancer Canada Walk of Hope or purchase at the event. The gallery will be open Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 5 Leckie Lane in Burnstown. Visit www.burnstown.ca/bittersweet/events for more information. *** Last weekʼs feature on the Robillard Hearing Centreʼs expansion to full-time hours in Renfrew contained an incorrect phone number. The toll-free number of 1-800-2671571 remains, but the local number should have read 613-432-7575. The office receptionist is Danielle McGregor.

Hinsperger re-elected OVTA president

The Ottawa Valley Tourist Association (OVTA) now has a first three-year term for its board of directors. The board elected at the April 23 annual general meeting at Calabogie Peaks Resort is for the term 2013 to 2016. Directors include re-elected president Chris Hinsperger of Bonnechere Caves, near Eganville, new vice-president Brian Levesque of Goldfish Communications in Arnrpior, and directors Arlene Jamieson of South Exposure in Renfrew and Byron Hermann from The Fans of Calabogie Bed & Breakfast in

Calabogie. Previous boards were elected for one-year terms, but the extension to three years is intended to provide more continuity for the countyʼs tourism body, says OVTA communications co-ordinator Lauren McIllfaterick. “The engagement of our members and interest in collaborating to promote, support and grow tourism in the Ottawa Valley is inspiring,” said Hinsperger in a news release. “Only great things can happen when we work together.” For the first time, the board

CP rail bed discussions Continued from page 4

Some of the several officials involved in the discussions are Renfrew County municipal officials Sweet, Raye-Anne Briscoe and Don Rathwell, as well as Lanark County CAO Kurt Greaves, Renfrew County CAO Jim Hutton, Papineau-Cameron Mayor Robert Corriveau and Canadian Pacific real estate manager Kevin Paul. In the April 25 letter, Sweet said acceptance or acquisition of the rail corridor would be “conditional on receiving consent from the City of Pembroke, and that the future use and management of the railway corridor will only be determined after a comprehensive consultation process involving the many stakeholders along the corridor. This position has not changed.” Sweet told county council: “Once we get some sort of agreement in principle, we will be sitting down with all the stakeholders.” A wide variety of potential users are interested in access to the railway bed, said Sweet, who referred to walkers, runners, cyclists, bird watchers and snowmobilers. The purchase price of the railway bed could be a help or a hindrance, Sweet told The Mercury. “But before we can determine the cost, we have to deal with surveys and appraisals,” added Sweet, noting thereʼs a definite desire to see the corridor remain intact, and not divided into different pieces. Itʼs also clear the railway bed fits nicely with Renfrew Countyʼs own strategic plan and county council priorities for 2013 to 2018. One of its seven priorities is the development of a linked trail system. Renfrew County is also on record as saying acquisition of the railway bed will not cost local taxpayers. This promise could result in an arrangement similar to what Renfrew County did to acquire the former Canadian Tire building in Renfrew a few years ago, suggested Sweet. In that instance, the county provided Canadian Tire with a tax receipt for about $2 million, based on the buildingʼs appraised value. The countyʼs cost to acquire the future Renfrew County Place was $1 plus legal and administrative costs of about $10,000.

of directors is also an amalgamation of board members and members of the OVTAʼs marketing committee. One of the marketing committeeʼs long-time members is director Jamieson. Other directors on the new board are Dennis Blaedow, Esprit Rafting - Davidson, Que., Christine Mitchell – Town of Petawawa; Margaret Maloney – RiverRun Rafting, Beachburg; Marilyn Alexander – Pembroke Comfort Inn, Pembroke; Rachelle Clayton – Hoch Farm, Killaloe; Susan Ellis, economic development, Recreation &

roles and responsibilities, provincial downloading, new regulations/standards and an overall more complex and fast-paced municipal environment.” Bulmer also said it is hoped the position attracts a career-oriented person who can fulfill the clerkʼs duties, when needed, and provide long-term effectiveness in the clerkʼs department. Renfrew is also looking for a new building inspector. The position has been vacated by Murray Gahan, who was just hired as McNab-Braesideʼs full-time building inspector.

Bob Hackett; Renfrew County representatives (appointed by county council) – Bonnechere Valley Mayor Jennifer Murphy and Renfrew Reeve Audrey Green. Current OVTA membership has reached a record 251. The countyʼs original tourism body, the Renfrew County Travel Association, came into being April 28, 1976. It became the OVTA in 1988 to more effectively brand the area to national

“I believe, based on my review and my feeling of whatʼs required and the level of service that is imperative of my department, that a full-time status is needed,” said Bulmer to council, which unanimously supported the administrative committeeʼs recommendation. In a backgrounder to council, Bulmer said the need for administrative support within the clerkʼs department has increased significantly over the past decade “due to changing

Henry Egan Lane is the way to the Renfrew Golf Club Steve Newman

STEVE NEWMAN/METROLAND

Henry Egan stands directly below the roadway named in his honour at the Renfrew Golf Club. He’s joined, from left, by Keith McKinnon, coemcee at Egan’s May 18 retirement ceremony; RGC board of directors member Rory McKay; co-emcee Lee Sharpe; and club general manager Sebastien Brown. ple are so impressed that inevitably Renfrew Club members are asked on trips to farther-away golf destinations such as Syracuse and Malone, “So howʼs Henry?” “I feel very honoured that it has happened,” says Egan, 70, after the naming of Henry Egan Lane. “Itʼs a

very nice gesture by the golf club.” The Arnprior resident, who only plays golf once a week, says he just likes being at the club and involved with its activities. Most of all, he says, “I hope people think Iʼve made a contribution along the way, and I guess I must have, if

In 1973, he offered insight on the design and construction of the second nine holes (now the front nine) and on the basic irrigation system for the original nine holes (now the back nine) that was built in 1929. Egan also co-ordinated the pro shopʼs move from the original first tee to its current site, and assisted with design and construction of the clubhouse and pro shop extensions. He was also instrumental in the design and reconstruction of all 18 greens in 2000. Some of his long-time friends and RGC staff members also extended thank-yous or shared stories at Eganʼs retirement ceremony. Among them were Chuck Lemenchick, a friend for 45 years and best man at his wedding; Bob Lemenchick and Dave Eady who were Eganʼs first pro shop employees in 1968; 1980s kitchen staff member Margaret Broome; Dick Hill, course maintenance staff member for 25 years; and club president Patrick Cayen. One of the most memorable lines at the retirement ceremony came from Chuck Lemenchick. Knowing Eganʼs periodic propensity for shanking the ball, he said, “Henry, SHANKS for the memories.” Egan was joined at the ceremony by his wife Allison, daughter Stephanie, son-in-law Andy and other family members. Including juniors, the Renfrew Golf Club has about 275 members. - With files from the Renfrew Golf Club

Wrestling could return to Olympic Games in 2020

Many Renfrew-area wrestling fans will be pleased to learn that wrestlingʼs long Olympic history may continue. Three sports remain in contention for the one sport to be added to the list of sports in the 2020 Olympic Games. Wrestling, baseball/softball and squash have been shortlisted from the original list of eight sports. The decision on which

of the three sports survives will be announced during the 125th International Olympic Committee session in Buenos Aires Sept. 7 to 10. “We are very pleased that the IOC executive board has voted to keep wrestling on the ballot along with two other fantastic and worthy sports,” said Canadian Olympic Committee president Marcel Aubut last week. “Wrestling Canada has worked extremely hard during the last four months and is to

be commended for their passion and determination. Our country has a long and proud tradition of wrestling excellence. This reputation includes the historic moment where Canadian Olympic Hall of Fame inductee Daniel Igali won Canadaʼs first-ever wrestling gold in Sydney (in 2000).” In the same release, the COC president also referred to Tonya Verbeekʼs silver medal and Carol Huynkʼs bronze from the 2012 Olympics. “While much work re-

mains before a final decision is made,” added Aubut, “I remain hopeful that in 2020 we will be celebrating yet more great Canadian Olympic wrestling results.” Wrestling has been part of the Olympic Games since they began in 1896. The first Olympics featured competition in wrestling, track and field, fencing, cycling, gymnastics, shooting, swimming, tennis and weightlifting. - With files from the COC

The STARS Basketball Camp runs the week of July 15-19 in the Grant Gymnasium at Renfrew Collegiate. The camp, open to girls and boys ages 9 to 14, runs daily from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. under the direction of RCI Raider coaches Vicki Wilson and Jason Wilson. “Our teaching philosophy is to emphasize the components of fun, fair play, and positive attitudes while the participant learns to play the great game of basketball,” Vicki Wilson said. The STARS camp runs in conjunction with Renfrew Rush Basketball Association. It is noted for creating an environment where the talents of each participant will flourish and the atmosphere is both challenging and fun, Wilson added. See STARS, page 28

Thereʼs a new special sign at the entrance to the Renfrew Golf Club. Long-time club employee Henry Egan was toasted in a special retirement ceremony at the club May 18, when it was announced that the road leading to the clubhouse and pro shop would be named in his honour. The club entrance bears one Henry Egan Lane sign, while another will soon be erected at the corner, just before the putting green. Itʼs a fitting tribute to a man whose gift for remembering and helping people is practically legendary, say club members. He describes his own golf game as mediocre, but the same canʼt be said about his people skills and the contributions he has made to help the Renfrew Golf Club grow over the years. “Itʼs a fantastic way for every golfer who comes here to remember Henry,” says club general manager Sebastien Brown. “An unbelievable number of people come into the pro shop and ask for him.” Lee Sharpe, who has been a club member since 1977, says Egan is best regarded as a solid ambassador for the club. She says the reasons include his outstanding people skills, friendliness and interest in whatever he does. Keith McKinnon, a club member since 1972, says itʼs amazing how many people and peopleʼs names Egan remembers over the years. Peo-

theyʼre doing this.” One of his most memorable times at the club was the expansion from nine to 18 holes in 1973, but there have been several such times. During the May 18 retirement ceremony to honour his exceptional professional service and dedication to the Renfrew Golf Club, emcees McKinnon and Sharpe reflected on his storied 45-year career. They noted that Egan managed each of the clubʼs major operational departments, including 15 years as the club golf professional and manager of pro shop operations. His personality and professional approach with guests and members, they say, resulted in increased membership, green fee play and junior involvement. He also spent five years as the club manager and 13 years as the clubʼs course superintendent. During this time the Renfrew Golf Club was recognized as the No. 1 course in the Ottawa Valley. He also spent the last 12 years as the pro shop assistant and club operational specialist. His knowledge of all aspects of the club, said the emcees, has been invaluable to the club and appreciated by long-time staff members and new hires alike. The emcees also noted his involvement with many projects. One was the creation in 1969 of the menʼs night format that quickly grew to more than 100 golfers, and continues to be enjoyed by members and guests today.

Renfrew County Roller Derby

This is not your motherʼs roller derby! While roller derby had all but faded away by the 1980s after becoming a form of sports entertainment, leagues have been emerging across North America since 2002 to breathe new life into this retrosport. A rumble has been echoing across Canada and in more and more community arenas each year, when the ice comes out, the derby girls roll in. Renfrew County answered the call in 2012, starting its own league. By day, the women of the Renfrew County Roller Derby (RCRD) can be found in their communities, working in hospitals, schools, courts, raising their kids, attending college. But two nights a week, they can all be found in one place – derby practice. Honing their speed, strategy and skill, RCRD calls the Beachburg and Ma-Te-Way arenas home in the summer months.. This isnʼt the roller derby you remember! The track is flat, the hits are real and fighting is a thing of the past. This sport is growing fast and furious, with new women joining the league all year long, and RCRD is now gearing up for its most exciting challenge yet. After over a year of dedication in practice, RCRD is now ready to host its first game.

field its flagship team, the Valley Valkyries, in their first ever roller derby bout. You can cheer on Brawny Cash, Finn McMangle-Her and the other derby girls as they go head to head, hip to hip and wheel to wheel with their first opponents: the Wagon Burners from Khanawake. The game starts at 7 p.m. at Ma Te Way Activity Centre in Renfrew. Tickets are $8 in advance, $10 at the door, and children aged 12 and under are free. This is a family-friendly event. Doors open at 6 p.m. You might like to check out RCRD merchandise for sale, visit local sponsors and soak in the atmosphere before sitting down to experience roller derby live. To get closer to the action (as long as you are 16 or older), bring a camp chair and claim your space in the Suicide Seats trackside. Ever community minded, RCRD will proudly divide the proceeds from this event with the Womenʼs Sexual Assault Centre of Renfrew County. Interested in joining our league as a skater, coach, official or volunteer? We need more women and men to help Renfrew County Roller Derby grow and thrive, so contact us at info@renfrewcountyrollerderby.com to find out how you can become a part of the phenomenon!

The Renfrew Collegiate soccer program has reached new heights. For the first time in the schoolʼs history, a Raiders soccer team has captured an Eastern Ontario high school (EOSSAA) title.

The Raiders overmatched Ecole Secondaire Marie Riviere and Rideau District by 2-0 margins May 29 at Ma-TeWay Park In the final, RCI ran roughshod over Hawkesbury 5-0. Phil Kadlec and Dane Brumm scored in the win over Marie Riviere. Austin Scheuneman and

Nick Hazen did likewise versus Rideau. Scheuneman and Hazen notched two goals each in the final. Fullback Auston Pierce booted home a single. Keeper Billy Karras enjoyed a big day for the Raiders as he pitched all three shutouts. Hazen finished 2013 with 13 goals.

It was a heartstopping end to a great 2013 season for the St. Josephʼs Jaguars at the junior girls soccer EOSSAA final on the home pitch May 28. The Glengarry Gaels outlasted the home side 3-2 in an overtime thriller.

The Renfrew County champion Jaguars blanked both Tagwi and Le Relais 2-0 in earlier contests, backed by the shutout goalkeeping of Brittany Cabral. Kim Carter and Hannah Robertson scored in the win over Tagwi while Anna Holt continued her fine season with the two goals in the triumph

over Le Relais. Robertson booted home both Jaguar goals to push the final into overtime before returning champion Glengarry caged the deciding overtime marker. St. Josephʼs principal Brennan Trainor congratulated the Junior Jaguars. See JAGUARS, page 28

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I couldnĘźt be more proud of all your efforts and dignity after such a long demanding day. Thank you for representing SJHS so well.â&#x20AC;? The Renfrew County senior girls Jaguars lost 1-0 on a ďŹ rst-half goal to Almonte in their opening contest. St. JosephĘźs couldnĘźt overcome an early 2-0 deficit in their second match as they dropped a 3-1 decision to Le Relais. Abbey Freemark clicked for the Jaguars while Jessie Vaive guarded the goalcrease. Char-Lan topped Le Relais 2-1 in the senior girls ďŹ nal, also in overtime. The senior boys ended their soccer at EOSSAA May 29. Hayden McIntyre and Peter Vice paced a 3-0 win over Almonte. The Jaguars then drew 0-0 against Glengarry, and went on to win 1-0 in a shootout in case it became necessary as a tie-breaker in the ďŹ nal pool standings. Keeper Evan Naismith didnĘźt allow a goal all day, yet the Jaguars failed to advance to the ďŹ nal because

Glengarry won its second game over Almonte 4-0. ItĘźs the second consecutive year that the Senior Jaguars didnĘźt lose a game at EOSSAA, and were still edged out in hopes of qualifying for the ďŹ nal match Char-Lan topped Glengarry 1-0 in the senior boys ďŹ nal. THREE JAGUARS QUALIFY FOR OFSAA

Three Jaguars have advanced to the Ontario high school (OFSAA) track and ďŹ eld championships this week in Oshawa. Peter Vice followed his win at EOSSAA with a third-place ďŹ nish at the East Regional meet in Belleville. He posted a distance of 6.06 metres in the senior boys long jump. Sarah Power enjoyed another ďŹ ne performance. She was third in the midget girls discus with a toss of 26.82 metres. Kathyrn David competed in both the junior girls 400 and 200 metres, and kept her season going by ďŹ nishing fourth in the 400 metres in 1:02.91.

Mid-Town dethrones champs Rob Warren Ladies Spring Basketball League

Third-place MidTown Flooring played first place Reunions in the finals of the Renfrew womenʼs basketball league. The last time Mid-Town defeated the Reunions was in

the semifinals on May 25, 2009. Mid-Town was quick and aggressive on defence, limiting the usual potent Reunion offence to eight points in the first half. Mid-Town also out-rebounded the Reunions, forcing them to foul to prevent second-chance points.

Mid-Town responded by making 11 of 13 free throws (10 of 13 for Sarah Dougherty) for 29 first half points. Mid-Town continued to play strong in the second half and took the championship 4722. Sarah Dougherty finished the night with 22 points.

ROTARIANS RECEIVE BUTTONS: “Tourism is based on a oneone basis,” said Bonnie Rosien in speaking to members of the Renfrew Rotary Club at their weekly meet on Monday, June 2. Bonnie is one of the 12 tourist ambassadors for Arnprior, Renfrew, Cobden and Calabogie in promoting the county, stressing hospitality. Buttons bearing “Youʼre Mighty Welcome” are being distrib-

WILL A PLANE FACTORY BE ESTABLISHED IN RENFREW? The disused hardwood flooring establishment on the eastern outskirts of Renfrew was given a look over by representatives of an American company interested in the production of planes for war purposes. The Renfrew building was one of a number of stands in this country to receive RENFREW HOME HARDWARE inspection. The WEEKLY SPECIAL structure viewed 3 X 50 here is of suffiR0012143683 SLS=4819 cient strength to accommodate the heaviest of machinery. And it possess the merit of being practically new. The town now owns it.

uted to everyone and it is hoped that this program will make people who deal with tourists realize how important it is to have a friendly and cheerful attitude. Bonnie urged all Rotary Club members to smile and make tourists welcome and they will soon see that this will bring people back year after year. A FIRST FOR RENFREW: A banquet without food! Canʼt imagine it, can you.Well, it really did happen and RCAFA president Max LeBlanc

is to be congratulated on the way he carried off the clubʼs annual charter night. Friday evening June 2 was the 24th annual Charter Night of the 433 Champlain Wing and around 80 people were enjoying a social hour awaiting dinner. Sit down time was 7:30, as president Max made the announcement that dinner which was to be catered was not coming until July 2. Of course, much laughter and conversation continued until everyone realized that dinner was not coming.

Following a few phone calls which were made unknown to those in attendance, President Max announced that Valley Hotel had come to the rescue and they were sending dinner for 80 up to the wing. In the meantime, the pre-dinner festivities and presentation of awards took place and a very difficult situation was overcome. Congratulations, Max.

The Greater Madawaska Public Library in Calabogie has been given the goahead to expand its downstairs location at 1101 Francis Street when council relocates in the old Calabogie Public School at 19 Parnell St. However, it was noted by Coun. Glenda McKay that should the space be relinquished to the library, no space would be available for expansion of the medical centre or another project. If the library is given that kind of space, people in Ward 2 are going to be upset, Coun. Bruno Kierczak said. After lengthy discussion, council supported the libraryʼs expansion to space now occupied by council chambers. However, after council relocates, the library board understands the municipality may still ask the library to relocate with nine months notice if the opportunity exists to expand medical services or other services valuable to the municipality. Councilʼs June 11 and 25 meetings will be held at the community centre at 3 p.m.

Ferguson snipped the ribbon Friday afternoon, assisted by residents Jean Millar of Quail Creek, Allison Campbell of RVH, Groves ParkĘźs Phyllis OĘźRourke and Vivian Mooney of Bonnechere Manor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This month is a great opportunity for seniors to celebrate their lives and the many ways they continue to make our prov-

ince a better place to live,â&#x20AC;? Ferguson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;OntarioĘźs 2013 theme â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Art of Living â&#x20AC;&#x201C; celebrates how seniors have created their own unique approach to living. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As seniors, you make a special contribution every day,â&#x20AC;? Ferguson said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and I know all of you work hard to maintain your quality of life in every environment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is our collective way to give something back to you during your month of celebration,â&#x20AC;? she added. Following the ribbon cutting, author and storyteller Mary

Cook entertained the gathering with some memories. She noted that the last time she was at Renfrew Victoria Hospital was at the age of ďŹ ve. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And IĘźm not going to tell you how long ago that was,â&#x20AC;? Cook grinned. She had her tonsils out, and the doctor was Dr. Murphy. Cook also told the story of how she could have been born in France, was almost born in New York, and was eventually born in Ottawa.

You don’t need to be Scottish to enjoy the Scottish festival Heather Lang

If you think you have to have Scottish blood coursing through your veins to enjoy the annual Scottish Festival on Sunday, June 23, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Waba Cottage Gardens in White Lake – part of McNab Days – think again. While the Scottish Festival began as a way to pay homage to the rich cultural heritage of the Township of McNab-Braeside, which was settled by Chief McNab, it has grown to be much more.

The school year winds down With nine months down, and just a few more weeks to go, the 2012-2013 school year is finally winding down. Itʼs getting harder and harder to focus on school as summer nears, but we still have one more hurdle to face before vacation and exams! On Tuesday, June 18, Grade 11 and 12 students write their Period 4 exams. On Wednesday, all students from Grades 9-12 will write their Period 1 exam, on Thursday they will write their Period 2 exam and on Friday, their Period 3 exam. On the following Monday, June 24, Grade 9 and 10 students will finish the year by writing their Period 4 exams. Graduation will take place on the evening of June 26, after the culmination of the exam period. Next Wednesday evening, the annual Celebration of Achieveeent Ceremony will be held in the gymnasium at SJHS. Athletic and academic awards will be given out following a banquet catered by Margiʼs Catering. We are looking forward to seeing students and their families there! The Dominican Republic Experience 2014 team has been selected, following a competitive application and selection process. Team members

ABBY HALL Jaguar Journal include Laura Troutman, Jocelyn Virgin, Kathryn David, Kailyn Friske, Maura McGrath and Phil Pilon. Also, I am thrilled to join the team as well this year. This will be a milestone year for the DRE because it marks the 25th anniversary of the mission trip, which began in 1989. Fundraising for the medical supplies and friendship kits begins immediately and will continue throughout the year! Grade 8 classes are travelling to Camp Walden in Bancroft June 19 and 20 for one of their end of the year trips. They will also be travelling to Calypso Water Park outside of Ottawa on June 25. The three classes have raised over $2,000 through various fundraising efforts to cut down on the expenses so these excursions are possible. Congratulations on your hard work!

Stepping into the Spotlight celebrates successful season Director Lawrence Mahusky and his very talented actors Lily Emon, Paige Mathieson, Emily Tracey, Allison Tracey, Ava Moore, Kayla Winters and Braelyn Spenser put on a wonderful morning collection of one act plays at the Renfrew Recreation Centre on Saturday, May 18. The plays included the Bear Dance, The Littlest Witch, Room for Improvement and One Foot Short. The young actors also demonstrated their improvisational skills through a talk show based on the theme of ladies getting a make-over. Stepping into the Spotlight is a program delivered through the Recreation centre which allows boys and girls the opportunity to practice a wide variety of dramatic skills. The students also travelled to myFM to learn about the radio business and record their own commercials, thanks to myFM reporter Chris Kyte. At the end of the performance, Mahusky awarded students with certificates for their hard work, and family and friends enjoyed a delicious pot lunch. Mahusky is hoping to gear up for another session in the fall. Special thanks goes out to The Renfrew Mercury and the staff at the Renfrew Recreation Centre and myFM.

In loving memory of Michael Fenton Who passed away June 6, 2012 in his 47th year. Dear Dad, I can’t believe it has been a year since you left me. I was so devastated. You were my father and friend all in one. You were taken from me too soon, but I guess God is the only one who knows when it is our time to go. The time we shared together and the love that you showed me as a father, I will never forget for as long as I live. Unfortunately, you left this world before you met your grandson. But, I will make sure that Bentley Michael knows what a loving and caring person you were. When I feel really sad and missing you, I remember when you’d come to pick me up and I would jump into your arms and you would make me feel safe and loved. Oh Dad, you will always be in my heart and in my soul. Love Kylie, Bentley and Aunt CLR442598
