The sod-turning ceremony takes place for the new Ontario Power Generation building on Renfrew’s Innovation Drive. Wielding the golden shovels, from left, are Renfrew planner Ivan Burton; Ontario Power Generation local plant manager Gerry Foote; developer Mack Wilson of M. Wilson Developments of Renfrew; local MPP John Yakabuski; Melissa Good, project lead for M. Sullivan & Son Ltd.; and local MP Cheryl Gallant.

News - Ontario Power Generation considered other locations for its Ottawa-St. Lawrence plant group, but in the end the corporation stayed in town. OPG is not only staying, but a sodturning ceremony July 31 kicked off the construction of the new 20,000 square-foot facility, which will be a big step up from its current Renfrew home of about 6,000 square feet. Construction and site servicing will cost about $6 million. Mack Wilson of Wilson Investments is the developer for the project, which will keep about 62 jobs in Renfrew and perhaps increase the number of local OPG employees to 67. “It’s important to me, firstly, because of the jobs that are going to remain in Renfrew,� said Wilson. “We’re so pleased to keep them here in Renfrew.� Gerry Foote, for OPG’s OttawaSt. Lawrence Plant Group, said, “We did look at Arnprior and the area around Renfrew, but at the end of the day this is where we’re established now, and this is where we wanted to stay.� See OPG, page 2

TransCanada hopes to proceed with oil pipeline project John Carter john.carter@metroland.com

News – A million barrels a day of crude oil could soon be travelling by pipeline through the Upper Ottawa Valley. TransCanada Corporation announced Aug. 1

that it is proceeding with the proposed Energy East Pipeline. Part of that project features the conversion of one of two natural gas pipelines through the Ottawa Valley from a gas to an oil pipeline. TransCanada representatives met with municipal officials from McNab-Braeside and Horton

R0092148199

in June to give them a heads-up on the proposed transformation that will take about four years to complete. They noted that converting the existing pipeline would be much less disruptive than building a new one. See PIPELINE, page 2

They’ve indicated there will be public information meetings on the plan this fall, likely in October, well before any work is done. The gas pipeline in question runs down the Ottawa Valley from Pembroke through Whitewater Region and Horton, crosses Highway 17 in the Goshen area, traverses McNab-Braeside to the Pakenham area and then into south Ottawa and down to Iroquois. In its news release, TransCanada announced it is moving forward with the 1.1-million-barrel-per-day Energy East Pipeline project based on receiving binding, long-term contracts from producers and refiners. The company says the contracts for about 900,000 barrels a day of oil confirmed strong market support for a pipeline that will, if all regulatory approvals are granted, transport crude oil from Western Canada to Eastern Canadian refineries and export terminals. “We are very pleased with the outcome of the open season for the Energy East Pipe-

line held earlier this year and are excited to move forward with a major project that will bring many benefits across Canada,” said TransCanada CEO Russ Girling. “This is an historic opportunity to connect the oil resources of western Canada to the consumers of eastern Canada, creating jobs, tax revenue and energy security for all Canadians for decades to come.” TransCanada representatives told local councils that the pipeline will give eastern Canadians a stable and reliable supply of crude oil from Alberta and Saskatchewan and cut down this area’s dependence on expensive imported crude oil. Eastern Canada currently imports about 700,000 barrels of oil a day. The project involves converting about 3,000 kilometres of natural gas pipeline to crude oil service and constructing about 1,400 kilometres of new pipeline. The pipeline will terminate in Saint John, N.B., where TransCanada and Irving Oil have formed a joint venture to build, own and operate a new deep water marine terminal that will send the oil to overseas markets. The pipeline is expected

The TransCanada project involves converting about 3,000 kilometres of natural gas pipeline to crude oil service and constructing about 1,400 kilometres of new pipeline. to cost about $12 billion and be in service by late-2017 for deliveries in Quebec and 2018 for deliveries to New Brunswick. The company is promising to “engage in open and meaningful discussions with Aboriginal communities and key stakeholder groups” along the pipeline route. Some groups, including Greenpeace, the Council of Canadians and Ecology Ottawa, have expressed concern about having an oil pipeline going through the area, citing recent spills in the U.S. For more information about the Energy East Pipeline project, visit www.energyeastpipeline.com or www. oleoducenergieest.com

With the new and larger building, many functions previously held elsewhere can now be housed in Renfrew, following scheduled completion of the OPG building in May 2014. Wilson joined MP Cheryl Gallant, MPP John Yakabuski, Renfrew planner Ivan Burton, M. Sullivan & Son project lead Melissa Good, and Foote for the ceremonial sod-turning. They donned hard hats to wield golden shovels at 2 Innovation Drive, in front of OPG’s Renfrew office of the Ottawa-St. Lawrence Plant Group. About 50 people were on hand, including OPG employees, local town council, and other project participants, like principal architect Alex Leung of grc architects in Ottawa. “It’s a facility that is very much user-friendly,” said Leung. “It has a lot of the amenities and space that caters to the growth of OPG. The building also has a sensitive but contemporary quality, which promotes the mission of OPG. There’s a lot of history behind OPG and it’s time for them to have a new identity … and I think the new building will sell and promote that quality.” OPG’s current Renfrew building, said Leung, has been adapted so many times that it has outgrown itself. The OPG component of that building will be torn down, while the remainder will become rental space. That will leave another 10 or so acres on a 15-acre package of land where Wilson hopes to attract “good commercial identities” that create another $10- to $15-million in new construction. The sod-turning ceremony emcee was Nicole Laframboise, project manager for Wilson Investments. “It’s been almost a year in the making. There have been a few trials and tribulations, but we finally made it this far,” said Laframboise of this “important and significant job generator for Renfrew.” Job generation is what the project is all about, agreed MP Gallant, who thanked OPG

“for having faith in our community and for helping to continue to grow our families far and wide. And thank you, Mr. Wilson, for taking on this huge project. We all appreciate it, and the government of Canada salutes you.” Wilson said it gave him “enormous pleasure” to attend the ground-breaking ceremony. Speakers included MPP John Yakabuski, who called this “a huge new development that guarantees that we’re going to have a strong OPG presence here for decades to come. I want to thank Mack Wilson for taking the initiative for sitting down with the current tenants of the building and saying we’ve got a future here, we’ve just got to work together to bring it through to fruition.” In fact, Wilson now has a 20-year lease with OPG for the property at 2 Innovation Drive, effective July 31, 2013. Speaking for town council, Coun. Clint McWhirter said, “Mack Wilson has always been a high-quality builder with careful attention to every detail. We look forward to working with Wilson Investments for completion of this new project.” General contractor Tim Pruner, of M. Sullivan & Son Ltd., referred to OPG as one of its elite customers, and a status the company is proud of. “For over a dozen years, Sullivan’s has worked in some capacity on every one of the hydro-electric stations in OPG’s Ottawa-St. Lawrence Plant Group along the Ottawa, Madawaska and St. Lawrence rivers,” said Pruner. Foote referred to 2 Innovation Drive as the cornerstone location for OPG’s local plant group, since it’s already home for engineering, finance, health and safety, human resources, and other support functions. “Today’s ceremony marks not only the construction of a new building,” he added, “but it also commemorates OPG’s commitment to Renfrew for many more years, and highlights the unique role that OPG and other industries play in ensuring that this community continues to strive. “We know we’re not the easiest people in the world to work with, when it comes to crossing the T’s and dotting the I’s, but we get there.”

News - The cost of living continues to rise, and in Renfrew those creeping costs include water and sewer services. Water rates have risen 18 cents to $2.23 per cubic metre. Sewer rates are up 13 cents to $1.58 per cubic metre. In December 2011 council adopted a bylaw setting the water and wastewater fees for 2012 and 2013. Then in November 2012 the town received notice from the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation that the assessed value of both the water treatment plant and wastewater treatment plant were increasing substantially Jan. 1, 2013. Property taxes in the water fund increased by about $43,000 in 2013, while property taxes based on the current value assessment of the new wastewater treatment plant means an increase of $100,000 in the wastewater fund operating expenses. “During 2012 director (Mike) Asselin, on behalf of the town, finalized negotiations with the Ontario Clean Water Agency to establish a new three-year operating agreement,” said treasurer Keray O’Reilly’s written report to council “The town was successful in attaining reductions in the overall operating costs of approximately $120,000 per year for the water treatment plant and $74,000 for the wastewater treatment plant,” the report said. “Based on a review of the budget versus actual maintenance expenditures in the water fund for the last five

years, the budget has been reduced by $123,000 – and the savings transferred to the capital budget to cover the increased costs of the revised capital program,” the report said. At its July 15 meeting, council passed 8 separate motions related to the 2013 water and wastewater budgets. Among those were motions to finance capital expenditures, through operations: • $71,000 for a new waterworks truck; • $20,000 to purchase materials to replace a section of water main on Elgin Street; • $6,000 to hire a consultant to perform a preliminary assessment of the Prince Avenue/Carswell Street water main condition; and, • $16,000 for a new mobile unit to read the water meters. A motion was also passed that $652,200 – being the costs incurred to complete upgrades to the water tower standpipe in 2010 – be financed through lifecycle reserves. Approval has also been granted for $39,000 to be invested in health and safety upgrades to the Lisgar Avenue Pumping Station. A total of $32,000 was approved to hire consultant services ($16,000 per site) to perform preliminary assessment at the O’Brien Road and Arthur Street pumping stations.This work will be financed through lifecycle reserves. Renfrew council also passed debt repayment forecasts and consolidated budget summaries for both water and wastewater services.

News - The clock tower in Renfrew’s downtown core has been revitalized, and bells are ringing to mark the upgrade. Late last week Jeff Elderhorst and son Brandon installed a new clock drive, all new controls and a striker for the bell to mark the hours. Jeff Elderhorst’s great grandfather J.A. started Elderhorst Bells Inc. in Zoeterwoude, Holland in 1893, working on church bells as part of his steel fabrication and blacksmithing business. Over the years, church bell service became the majority of his work. The business became J.A. Elderhorst & Zonen (Sons) and by 1926 the company was providing complete bell ringing systems. Following World War II, the family business became ElderhorstZoeterwoude in The Netherlands, and part of the family of craftsmen moved to Canada and then on to the United States to begin Elderhorst Bells. The company was incorporated in 1988. The company is no stranger to the area as they have also completed work on the historic clocks in both Arnprior and Eganville. Other recent projects were in Peterborough and Edmonton.

News - Renfrew Victoria Hospital hosted a small group of international delegates on July 16 as part of an Accreditation Canada Knowledge Exchange Day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our hospital was very pleased to be selected by Accreditation Canada International to host this delegation,â&#x20AC;? said Renfrew Victoria Hospital president and CEO Randy Penney. â&#x20AC;&#x153;RVH is very proud of our longstanding relationship with Accreditation Canada and pleased to be able to demonstrate how accreditation has improved the quality of care for our patients and their families.â&#x20AC;? Dr. Mohamaed Salah Ben from Tunisia, Jorien Soethout and Kees van Dunn both from the Netherlands spent the day with Penney, who is also a surveyor with Accreditation Canada, Christine Ferguson (vice president of patient care services at RVH and surveyor with Accreditation Canada) along with other representatives from RVH as they presented an overview of the organization and explained their approach to accreditation. In the afternoon the group toured the busy dialysis unit and presented a mock accreditation survey. Ferguson says the opportunity to share our knowledge related to the current accreditation process with health professionals from other countries who are just entering into the quementum standards that we follow was valuable for both parties. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Knowledge Ex-

change Day provided our staff and physicians the opportunity to speak about how we prepare for the accreditation process and how accreditation helps us to determine our quality improvement path at RVH.â&#x20AC;? Conny Adam Menger, the executive director client relations with Accreditation Canada International attended the session in Renfrew, says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;This visit added tremendous value to their knowledge and experience of how we conduct the accreditation survey; and also the ongoing value of the accreditation process to a health care organization.â&#x20AC;? The presenters consistently linked back positive outcomes to the accreditation process and standards, and as Adam Menger noted: â&#x20AC;&#x153;references to the fact that accreditation drives many of the significant improvements in our health-care system was much appreciated by the group.â&#x20AC;? Accreditation Canada is a national non-profit organization that provides an external peer-review process to assess and improve the services that health institutions provide to their patients and clients, based on standards of excellence. The accreditation process emphasizes health system performance, risk prevention planning, and client safety, as well as performance measurement and governance. RVH will undergo its three-year accreditation later this year. The hospital met all of the required organizational practices (ROPs) for patient safety in 2010.

Champlain CCACâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s acquired brain injury program connecting people to care Champlain Community Care Access Centre

News - Ken Rekowskiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life changed in an instant. Four years ago, he was involved in a car accident that left him with a serious brain injury and damage to his right side. Today the 42-year-old Renfrew man still uses a wheelchair. But he is making steady progress in his recovery, thanks to help he has received through a new program at the Champlain Community Care Access Centre (CCAC). Acquired brain injuries result from damage to the brain caused by a traumatic or non-traumatic event after birth. While about 44 individuals sustain a traumatic brain injury (TBI) every day in Ontario, the Champlain region reported a higher incidence than the provincial average in 2009/2010, at 2.2 injuries per 1,000 people. An estimated 1.5 million Canadians are living with an acquired brain injury (ABI) right now, but the Champlain CCAC is pleased to highlight the ongoing success of its acquired brain injury program and the invaluable work of people like Suzanne McKenna. Acquired brain injuries can be traumatic or non-traumatic. As the Champlain regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ABI intake-system navigator, she focuses on connecting ABI survivors with the care they need to live better

lives. Since the position was created in October 2011, she has connected over 120 individuals living with an ABI to specialized services and supports. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By providing a single point of access, the ABI Navigator can guide survivors and caregivers who are unsure about where to start looking for care during this difďŹ cult time in their lives,â&#x20AC;? says McKenna. Kareen Rekowski, Kenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s twin sister, is grateful for the support her brother has received through the program, and particularly the difference that Suzanne McKenna has made in her brotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Before meeting Suzanne, it was difďŹ cult to ďŹ nd the right help for Ken. We were struggling,â&#x20AC;? said Rekowski. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In June 2012, she met with us at the hospital and connected Ken with NeuroGym Rehabilitation in Ottawa. He is now able to stand for longer periods and is making good progress. He is hopeful.â&#x20AC;? ABI is often referred to as a silent epidemic because symptoms are not visible to others around the victim. From cognitive impairment to mood and physical disorders, the impact and consequences of a brain injury on any individual, family or relationships can have an effect that reaches far

beyond the injured survivor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A brain injury doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just change the life of the individual; it changes the lives of everyone around them,â&#x20AC;? says McKenna. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Creating a better life for those who suffer a brain injury, along with their families and caregivers, is my ultimate goal.â&#x20AC;?

Locovore movement grows Canadians coast to coast are making the effort to buy local. That according to the third annual BMO food survey. A July 5 news release said the report reveals by Canadians feel motivated to buy and eat local food The â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;locovoreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; movement is described as one whereby people are making a conscious effort to eat locally. The survey also revealed some regional differences: Albertans buy beef; Quebecois choose cheese; Ontarians want wine; and Atlantic Canada feeds on fish. The research also found that Canadians seek to buy locally grown vegetables more than other products. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Supporting the regional economy, farmers and jobs, along with fresh food and taste, all trump the cost of food for people choosing to buy local,â&#x20AC;? the news release said. The report also revealed what products Canadians buy locally and why, and showed differences across the provinces on a variety of foods. The survey lists the top reasons Canadians

buy local: â&#x20AC;˘ The food is fresh and tastes better (97 per cent); â&#x20AC;˘ It supports the local economy (97 per cent); â&#x20AC;˘ It supports local farmers (96 per cent); â&#x20AC;˘ It creates local jobs (93 per cent); â&#x20AC;˘ Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s better for the environment (88 per cent); â&#x20AC;˘ It offers the opportunity to buy organic produce (76 per cent); and, â&#x20AC;˘ It is less expensive (71 per cent). Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your reason? If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have one, consider the options and plan to attend Taste of the Valley celebrations when they come to Renfrew Sept. 21 and Cobden Oct. 19. David Rinneard, director of Agriculture and Agribusiness for BMO Bank of Montreal, said the study shows an overwhelming majority of Canadians recognize the important contribution of agriculture producers to local economy and creating jobs. We are among that majority and urge citizens everywhere to support our local farm community.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Broken dishes and tin treasures The insanity of drug criminalization It happened so suddenly. Standing by the kitchen sink, I reached into the kitchen cupboard to grab a dish, and just as quickly dropped it into the sink. Crash! I stared down at the broken bowl. No biggie, I thought. We live in a world full of bowls. Then I lifted the shards of broken glass and saw the fractured piece below. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to believe it. A shallow beige and brown-trimmed bowl â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Crestone Stoneware made in Japan â&#x20AC;&#x201C; lay in three pieces under a shattered Made-in-England bowl. Common sense told me the English item would be more valued by most, but they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand. This simple speckled stoneware had seen so many chilis and stews and soups over the years, it was like family. James took the loss harder. Standing nearby, he needed to step back for a moment to escape my first-response flurry of excuses and second-thought patter of apologies; to let the enormity of the moment sink in. It was his go-to bowl. I knew that. I have favourite dishes, too. Some have deep sentimental meaning; others are just plain functional and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the most important quality in any dinnerware. For a split second I thought of a friend who shared the story of her frantic Christmas search for the perfect pasta bowl for her husband. Yes, sometimes we care that much. And I still look back with a certain sadness

LUCY HASS View from The â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Frew

on the early-winter weekend we returned to the cottage to discover that water had been left in a favourite pitcher handed down from my Mom. The ice expanded and cracked the pitcher in half. Not that we were ever fancy-dish folk. When I was growing up Mom had what we called her â&#x20AC;&#x153;good dishesâ&#x20AC;? that came out for special occasions only. They were a full, crisp set of plates and cups and saucers. Today I live with a mish-mash of cutlery, plates and cups, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fine with me. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fitting reflection of an eclectic life filled with a little bit of this and a little bit of that, with no real pattern or structure. But there will always be those special pieces that can never, ever be replaced. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good thing to know and appreciate them. Meanwhile, three cheers for my stainless steel bowls and that set of rustic blue and white camping cookware. Those pieces will never break.

ills from health authoritiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; non-regulation of needles and products, countless employment prospects destroyed by â&#x20AC;&#x153;criminalâ&#x20AC;? records, and bloodbaths from gangs fighting for black market monopolies and profits in Mexico, Honduras, Colombia, Afghanistan and even here in Canada. (Given how the Taliban insurgency has sustained itself through taxing Afghan opium farmers in exchange for protection from pro-prohibition forces, Canadian troops abroad have literally died fighting the global â&#x20AC;&#x153;war on drugsâ&#x20AC;?.) If 44% of Canadians aged 15 and over have tried cannabis at least once in their lives (according to the Addiction Research Institute of Manitoba), can Conservatives seriously believe we can be a society of

rule of law and prosecute them all? Or are they satisfied with a cynical system where police can only selectively enforce the law, disproportionately against youths, poor and nonwhite persons who â&#x20AC;&#x153;look like criminalsâ&#x20AC;?? When drug criminal laws were devised over a century ago before the failed attempts at alcohol Prohibition (in some cases to deliberately target â&#x20AC;&#x153;filthyâ&#x20AC;? racial minorities), their proponents could be excused for living in an age of more ignorant ideas. But now that the Conservatives have become the last of all national parties to support cannabis criminalization, they have no such excuse â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they merely oppose the inevitable.

To the editor: With Justin Trudeauâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recent policy change towards legalization of marijuana (in line with the Green Party while the NDP favour decriminalization), one is reminded of the delusional public policy that proclaims that recreational drug users are so irrational about their own welfare, that they will be rational enough to be deterred from consumption by a police state. There is no imagining the infinite harm this disproven idea has caused for over a century: a trillion dollars spent on drug prosecutions in North America, foregone untaxed revenue, systemic racial subordination (see the mass incarceration of American blacks and Canadian Aboriginals), HIV transmission and other artificial

Project Zero launches in Horton Township Enbridge Gas Distribution helps Horton Fire Department and Fire Marshal’s Public Fire Safety Council reduce fire and carbon monoxide deaths News - Enbridge Gas Distribution, the Fire Marshal’s Public Fire Safety Council and the Horton Fire Depart-

ment will work together to deliver 180 combination smoke and carbon monoxide alarms to Horton Township homes through Project Zero. Through Project Zero, 15 fire departments will deliver more than 2,900 combination smoke and carbon monoxide alarms to Ontario homes. Horton firefighters will provide fee installation of the units.

Tanya Roberts, fire protection advisor with the office of the Fire Marshal Fire Safety Council, said carbon monoxide is “the invisible killer” because it is tasteless and odourless. She said the dual alarm is a real bonus as a voice announces whether the alarm is fire- or carbon monoxide-based. “We’ve had some saves (lives

saved) because of them,” she said of the units, and applauded the comprehensive approach to public safety. Steve Uren, who is Enbridge Gas Distribution manager of customer safety and compliance, described the units as a back-up device, with the first line of defence being regular maintenance and service of any appliance. This year, Enbridge has donated $100,000 to expand the public education program aimed at reducing residential fire and carbon monoxide deaths to zero. Since the launch in Toronto in 2009, Enbridge has supported the delivery of Project Zero to 34 Ontario communities. “Safety is our top priority at Enbridge, and we’re committed to helping ensure there are no deaths in Ontario due to carbon monoxide exposure,” said Michael Wagle, operations manager, Enbridge Gas Distribution. “Educating customers about the importance of installing a combination smoke and carbon monoxide alarm and properly maintaining fuelburning equipment is an ongoing priority.” “Smoke and carbon monoxide alarms are critical life safety devices.

They detect the presence of smoke and deadly gas and provide those precious seconds for occupants to escape. Everyone needs to have them in their homes,” said Ontario Fire Marshal Ted Wieclawek. “With the installation of this dual purpose alarm, it offers one more level security and peace of mind for the home owner,” said Chief Randy Corbin of the Horton Fire Department. “It’s nice to see the big corporations helping out the smaller communities,” said Councillor Marg Whyte, chair of the Horton fire committee. The alarms will be distributed to homes in neighborhoods where the number of residential fires and firerelated deaths and injuries have been higher than average. During 2012, 70 people died as a result of fires in Ontario and 59 of those deaths resulted from residential fires. In Ontario, it is the law that every home must have a working smoke alarm on every storey and outside all sleeping areas. See PROJECT ZERO, page 11

Be prepared for emergencies Patricia Leboeuf and John Carter

News - The violent storms that roared down the Upper Ottawa Valley recently were a reminder that the best way to cope with an emergency or natural disaster is to be prepared. Before a disaster even occurs, residents should have a plan in place and an evacuation plan should be created. This has become even more important in recent years as storms are

Project Zero Continued from page 10

While carbon monoxide alarms are not currently legislated in Ontario, they are highly recommended by the Ontario Fire Marshal. Combination smoke and carbon monoxide alarms, when properly installed and maintained, help provide the early warning that is needed to safely escape from a house fire or carbon monoxide exposure. Carbon monoxide is a toxic, odorless gas that is a by-product of incomplete combustion of many types of common fuels. It is important that all fuel-burning equipment be properly maintained to prevent carbon monoxide buildup. Carbon monoxide alarms are recommended as a second line of defense to protect against the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning. Project Zero is a public education program aimed at reducing residential fire and carbon monoxide deaths to zero. Enbridge Gas Distribution supported the inaugural launch in Toronto in 2009. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $100,000 donation will allow for the expansion of Project Zero to an additional 15 Ontario communities, including Horton Township.

tending to become more and more extreme, leading to significant wind and rain damage. The high winds knocked power out in many power back before dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s end, there were people in the Upper Valley and on the Quebec side who were still without electricity at midweek, four days after the storm. Emergency officials stress that households should have an emergency preparedness kit in case of trouble. These kits should be mobile, easily located and allow the residents to be self-sufficient for at least 72 hours. It is possible to buy these kits, but it is often cheaper to create one as The Fire Marshalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Public Fire Safety Council is a registered charity established in 1993 with a mission to help create â&#x20AC;&#x153;a world where no one is hurt by fire.â&#x20AC;? The Council, chaired by the Ontario Fire Marshal and supported by the Office of the Fire Marshal, operates at armâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s length from the government and promotes fire prevention and public education through sponsorships and partnerships with various groups and individuals with an interest in public safety. The Horton Fire Department is a department made up of 17 volunteers who serve a community of 1,800 people. Enbridge Gas Distribution Inc. has a history of more than 160 years and is Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest natural gas distribution company. Enbridge Gas Distribution delivers safe, reliable natural gas in more than 100 communities across Ontario and is a leader in promoting energy efficiency programs.

To create a suggested kit, fill an easy-to-carry container such as a duffle bag or backpack with a threeday supply of necessary medication, a battery-operated or crank radio, flashlights and extra light bulbs, extra batteries, cash, utility knife, rope, a shovel, a ABC type fire extinguisher,

a tube tent, blankets or sleeping bags, plastic sheeting, candles and matches or a lighter and extra car keys.

water, a whistle and playing cards, games, paper and pencils. Stored in a safe place and in an approved container, a small quantity of fuel for the car should be kept as well. A similar kit should be prepared for any pets with food, water, blankets, toys, medication and paperwork emergency details such as health issues, behavior information and contact information.

Greening our businesses Cheryl Keetch and Kathy Lindsay Bonnechere River Watershed Project

News - Five years ago, when Dave and Warren LaRocque began the planning for their new George Jackson Toyota dealership in Horton Township, their goal was to not only build a facility that would service their needs but also to buy and hire locally, help serve their community, and minimize their environmental impact. A particularly impressive feature of their facility is the water management system. Run-off from the parking lots, roofs, agricultural tile drains from surrounding fields and a meandering grassed waterway system, drains into a holding pond â&#x20AC;&#x201C; complete with cattails, frogs and birds. In addition to wildlife habitat, the pond provides water for firefighting for the dealership and for the Township of Horton, made accessible through a fire hydrant installed along the road. A surface well adjacent to the holding pond is used for washing vehicles, and as another emergency water source. Unlike most dealerships, every effort is being made to minimize impervious surfaces by using paving stone and gravel instead of asphalt and concrete. Grey water from the dealership is kept separate from septage and is pumped into an innovative raised and aerated septic bed for infiltration into groundwater. In the winter, plowed snow is stockpiled in a location that allows for a slow spring melt that recharges groundwater and the holding pond. Reducing greenhouse gas emissions contributing to our changing climate has also been a priority. In the outdoor lot, innovative and environmentally friendly LED lighting, while costing 50 to 100 per cent more to install, reduces electricity use and has a much longer lifespan than conventional lighting. The lights are manufactured in North America and activated by timers to provide illumination only when necessary, and are dark sky compliant to further reduce light pollution. The building features an energy efficient closed loop ground-source geothermal heating and cooling sys-

tem â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the only one in a commercial building in Eastern Ontario â&#x20AC;&#x201C; built and installed by local companies. The building has also been â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;greenedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; by having triple insulation, energy efficient indoor lighting, a light coloured roof to reduce summer heating, heat re-claimers in the ventilation system, and a one-inch space between the garage and the main showroom for fire suppression. Recycled and re-purposed materiCHERYL KEETCH/BONNECHERE RIVER WATERSHED PROJECT als are also being used. Warren and Dave LaRocque of George Jackson Toyota with Kathy Lindsay, chair of the BRWP, standing beSurplus sea containers were pur- side the holding pond on the property. chased, re-painted to blend in with the natural surroundings, and placed away from the main building as storage pods for off-season tires and hazardous materials. The pods are designed to provide a wind-break and to allow for quick removal of individual containers in case of fire. Two containers at the rear doors also act as windbreaks and storage. Metal recycling is creatively and efficiently handled by filling an â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;end of lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; vehicle with scrap metal from the garage, then the entire vehicle and its contents recycled. Customer service is also going green. Plans are in the works for the creation of an outdoor â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;waiting roomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s play structure, and a walking trail through the property for customers and the general public alike. Dave and Warren La Rocque have made an outstanding effort to green their business and serve their community at the same time. George Jackson Toyota was also the first sponsor of the Bonnechere River Watershed Project â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Stone Fence Theatre co-production, Bonnechere River: Future Tense, which has its grand finale as a dinner theatre at the Horton Community Centre on Aug. 23.

1913: Tone it down at library

FINAL

AUGUST 8, 1913

TENDERS FOR DRILL HALL: Renfrew Drill Hall tenders are to be received up until Friday. Besides local builders, several outside contractors have been looking over the ground and plans. This week contracts were let for the building of three drill halls; at Beauport, Que. at $30,000, at Red Deer, Alta; at $36,000, and at Kemptville to John Dillon at $11,000. TALKING IN THE LIBRARY: The Mercury is asked by the secretary of the library to give public warning of all and sundry that loud talking and hilarious laughter in the reading room and library will not be permitted. It is said that some ignored the request of the librarian. TO CLEAN UP THE OLD IRON ON MAIN STREET: Chief Plaunt had Wm. Friedman summoned before Police Magistrate Devine for obstructing the street with old iron which decorates the lot at the corner of Main and Railway. A fine of $2 and costs was imposed and Mr. Friedman given a week in which to clean away that portion at the bottom of the pile which was projecting on the street. AUGUST 11, 1938

ANOTHER MAJOR RESIDENCE TO BECOME A DUPLEX: The Wade residence at the corner of Raglan and Munro streets, built by the late Dr. A.S. Wade 28 years ago, is to be converted into a duplex. Work was commenced on Monday by a force of men in charge of Mr. Asa W. Smart, who prepared the plans. The Misses Wade, who own the residence, have had the furniture removed and stored. In 1909 the M.J. Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien Co., then taking building contracts here, erected the home along plans drawn by Richards and Abra. A.E. Spooner supervised the work of construction. ROUNDHOUSE STAFF MEMBER RETIRING WAS DULY HONORED: Mr. Fred Cumm change hand at the CPR round house in Renfrew for the past few years, has been placed on the superannuated list after a service begun

OLGA LEWIS From the Old Files

in 1916. Members of the CPR staffer here went to Mr. Cummâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home in Eganville on Wednesday evening last and presented him with an address, and an easy chair as a souvenir of his stay in Renfrew. The address was read by Mr. Ed Anderson. Mr. Clement the CPR agent and about a score of others went up from Renfrew travelling by car. After the business of the evening was over Mr. and Mrs. Cumm entertained their guests in most hospitable manner. AUGUST 9,1978

BEAMISH RUMOURS PREMATURE: Rumours that the local Beamish store will be closing are premature, according to a company representative. The company with stores in Ottawa and several valley towns; went into receivership last week. The accounting firm of Touche Ross Ltd. have been appointed receivers for the store and are studying the operations. THE CBC TOWER AT STORYLAND: CBC will not build an FM radio broadcasting tower in a location that would have destroyed the view from Champlain Lookout in Storyland. The corporation sent a letter to Big Pine Country committee announcing that they had found a site behind Storyland that was technically better than the site that would have blocked the view from the tourism site. The radio tower will be used to provide a French language service. For help with research, email olewis@sympatico.ca

NATURE

Connected to your community

Recent stormy weather may have been the cause Stephen Grasmuck sent us the following email. Since the storms ended we have had large numbers of ruby-throated hummingbirds return to our feeders near Eganville. Prior to the storms we had seen only occasional hummers at our feeders.Immediately after the storms, however, we have seen up to five birds lobbying for a place to feed. I wondered if these birds went into a sort of “hibernation” during the high winds and torrential rains and returned in abundance searching for food when the storms ended. The birds are consuming the nectar at an astonishing rate. From each of two larger feeders they are eating from 10 to 16 ounces of food over a two-day period. Clearly these birds are hungry. Any information would be appreciated. Stephen: Thank you for the email. We do know that tree swallows go into torpor during cold, wet spring conditions. They will also leave nesting duties even when there are eggs in the nest.

JIM FERGUSON Scene from the Hawk’s Eye The absence of the birds does not seen to have any effect on the condition of the eggs or incubation time. CURRENT INFORMATION FROM DR. ADAM SMITH

Hi Jim and Ila: I have seen papers that suggest ruby-throated hummingbirds entering torpor (semi-conscious state) in response to storms. Interestingly, in some quick further searching, I also just came across a paper from the early ‘90s suggesting that because males have higher energy demands during the breeding season (territorial defence, display flights, etc.) they have reduced ability to regulate their body temperature during cold-snaps. They have lower survival rates than

females and even under regular weather conditions probably have to enter torpor more often than females. It would be interesting to know if both females and males return to feeders after the storms, or if the males are less likely to reappear. Adam

distinguish between insects, ants in particular, their main food item, and twigs that look like ants. An entirely black chipmunk is definitely not a normal visitor. It has all the habits of a chipmunk but not the colour. Cross breeding or a mutated gene can cause this colour change.

Thank you, Adam. This helps a great deal to explain the situation. Adam is a Doctor of Ornithology and works in Ottawa. If you have noted more females than males returning please let us know.

HUMMERS REBOUND

NORTHERN FLICKER

Bob and Glenda Hoare have had two, first-time visitors to their back yard last week. One family of northern flickers, two adults and one young bird and a black chipmunk. Bob said that the male flicker was flying from tree to tree while the female was in the garden feeding the young bird. It is important for the adults to show their young what items are food and what items are not. They must

Florrie and Terry Gilmore had all but two of the hummingbirds that were feeding near their cottage at Garden Lake disappear during the stormy weather in July. On July 30, however, eight hummers returned with a vengeance and are fighting over a place at the feeder. The males will be leaving during mid August and will leave the feeders to the females and their young. KESTRELS RETURN

Janet Eady reports that the kestrels that have been nesting near their home for several years have returned with one of their off-spring. Janet is not sure where they nested

this year but because of the thick foliage she said that the nest site would be well hidden. BIRD CALLS

Even during the season when birds sing, the songs do not do not tell other birds and some animals exactly what the birds want to communicate. Aggression, alarm, danger, and food location are other kinds of information birds want to pass on in short unmusical notes labelled “calls.” Calls are heard throughout the year. By watching a bird’s behaviour as it makes different calls, you can sometimes understand their meanings. The greatest number of calls is given by the raven, crow and jay family, perhaps an indication of their high level of brain development. If you hear any unusual calls please let us know. Enjoy your birding. Ila and Jim Ferguson, 5313 River Road, RR 5, Renfrew, Ont., K7V 3Z8. Phone 613-4322738 or email jamesh@nrtco.net

Instead, he relies on what he hears in his mind, perfectly reproducing a tune by ear. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not that complicated,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To me if the music is in your head, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OK. you can figure it out.

This rare talent is in his blood. He is one of several fair head boys in his family that have the gift of learning by ear. For each generation, there is a single musically inclined young boy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In my grandfatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family, there was one fair hair boy that played music,â&#x20AC;? said Leben. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In my motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family, there was one fair hair boy that plays music and that was me and there is another generation in there as well.

Community - Decades of hard work, dedication, raw talent and practice has culminated in the creation of Valley Heritage Radio volunteer Rick Lebenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first album. His languid deep voice and the alluring instrumental that accompanies it can be found on his CD, entitled Good Olâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Country. Leben will be holding an official release party to celebrate this achievement at 7 p.m. on Aug. 9 at the Huntley Community Association Mess Hall in Carp. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There will be live music,â&#x20AC;? said the 60-year-old. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have a bunch of musician friends that are coming and they will be performing. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll sing some of my songs as well. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have the CD playing. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a celebration and a chance for folks to hear it and come and pick up a copy.â&#x20AC;? The CD was originally created to help promote himself at the Shawville Country Jamboree, but his interest in launching an album quickly grew. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The biggest surprise I got from making the whole thing is that it is very, very different singing standing up without a guitar,â&#x20AC;? said Leben. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I guess a guitar for me is like a teddy bear or a comfort. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not hiding behind it, but I feel more balanced if I have it,â&#x20AC;? he added. He also learned the difference between singing at a gig and recording an album. Mainly that the large earphones acted as a sound proofing barrier so he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t properly hear his own voice. After a few bad takes, he learned to pop one earphone off in order to identify the proper notes and ensure that he hit them. Creating the album took a total of about six months. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The biggest process was trying to figure out what tunes to put on the CD,â&#x20AC;? said Leben. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Out of all the millions and millions and millions of tunes out there, how do you narrow it down to a few?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just hit and miss and try,â&#x20AC;? he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once I got the names of the tunes I wanted, I had to figure out what key worked best, whether or not I needed a band to do this. I do all of the music in the CD, except for two songs.â&#x20AC;? The end result was worth the wait. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The first time I heard it on the radio, it flipped me,â&#x20AC;? said Leben. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It just made me so happy to hear â&#x20AC;Ś the song I recorded on the radio. People started calling me, my aunts and uncles, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I heard you on the radio!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;I volunteer at the radio station (Valley Heritage) and they have been very, very supportive,â&#x20AC;? he added. He was so entranced by the euphoria he was feeling that he drove past the radio station directly into Renfrew.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why I can play at restaurants or I can play behind a band or I can play it (anywhere), it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter,â&#x20AC;? said Leben. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I can hear the tune in my head, I can play it.â&#x20AC;? He first started playing in the basement of his church, teaching himself the notes, inspired by the gospel music that constantly surrounded him as he grew up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Going back to my grandmother, she was on the farm and she would always be in the kitchen cooking or baking or whatever for the crowds that would come, trashing gangs, etcetera,â&#x20AC;? said Leben. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She would always be humming and whistling gospel tunes, old hymns. My mother did the same thing. She would whistle and sing old hymns around the house.â&#x20AC;? Turning his childhood hobby into a profession came naturally. In the past month only, he has played about 26 various gigs around the area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just love music and I especially love making music,â&#x20AC;? said Leben. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Especially playing in retirement homes â&#x20AC;Ś folks, if you are playing the right tune, man you can make their day. They cry when you hit the right notes. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great.â&#x20AC;? Despite his talent with

Former assistant succeeds Iob as Timberwolves’ head coach Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

Tony Iob says he’ll still be behind the bench for some games with the defending Ottawa Valley Division champions of the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League this season. But he won’t be the head coach. That position has been accepted by Chris ‘Kip’ Mulvihill, one of last season’s assistant coaches, after former head coach Iob was hired as assistant coach with the University of Ottawa Gee-Gees. Iob will be one of three assistants working with the Gee-Gees head coach Réal Paiement and one of Canada’s top-ranked collegiate teams. Paiement, whose Quebec Major Junior League teams have won more than 500 games, has also coached in Italy and Switzerland. Like Iob, the Gee-Gees other assistant coaches, Pier Martini and Michael Beynon, also have overseas hockey experience. Iob will also remain with the Timberwolves, as the team’s senior advisor of player development. Mulvihill, who has never been a head coach, says he was pleasantly surprised to be offered the head

Tony Iob takes job with University of Ottawa Gee-Gees coaching job, but the 28-year-old says he’s looking forward to the challenge. He hesitated at first, since he doesn’t know where most of his teaching, as a part-time teacher will be this year, with the Renfrew County Catholic District School Board. However, if it’s similar to last year, he’ll be spending much of his time in Douglas, Pembroke and Renfrew. Iob, who has guided the Timberwolves to two Valley Division crowns in three seasons, played 18 years of professional hockey before retiring as a pro player in 2009. Iob, 42, and Mulvihill, 28, share a similar coaching philosophy. “Discipline and systems were keys to our coaching last year, and he’s going to keep rolling with what we did last year,” says Iob of the new head coach. “He’s very hard-nosed. He works the kids harder than I do. That’s

He continues to stay fit with regular runs of eight to 10 kilometres, and plays for the successful McGrimmon’s squad in the Renfrew Men’s Recreational Hockey League. Mulvihill, whom most know as Kip, earned the nickname when his older brother called him that as an infant. The nickname stuck, and with it a lot of hockey memories. He calls Iob an encyclopedia and a great reference book for coaching information, but also one from whom

he’s inherited some of his own coaching assertiveness. “When you know what you want, you work to get it out of the players,” Mulvihill explains. “I’m always trying to maximize potential by buying in.” He says that means buying in to such things as being part of a system, discipline and perseverance. The Timberwolves, who went 8-1 in the playoffs to win the Valley Division championship, have several players returning this coming season.

what I like about Kip. At the camps he doesn’t take any B.S.,” points Iob during a recent Olympic Edge hockey camp in Petawawa. “You get on the ice and you don’t stop moving.” Iob says Mulvihill will be good for the Timberwolves. “He pays attention to small details that win games, like playing the right players in the right situations and knowing what to work on each practice. He’s also a very good speaker, and he can back it up (with demonstrated skill).” In moving to the Gee-Gees, the 2006 Olympian says it’s a great opportunity. To the Gee-Gees’ program, Iob says he’ll bring his knowledge of team systems and a different look that some coaches probably don’t have, after playing and coaching in Europe for several years and coaching back in Canada for a few more. “I’ve had many coaches, so you take the good and the bad. You always say I want to be that guy and I don’t want to be that guy.” Meanwhile, Iob will continue to run his Olympic Edge hockey camps, with the help of Mulvihill, with 2013 summer stops in Petawawa, Renfrew, Arnprior, Cobourg and Trenton. Mulvihill, who grew up in Renfrew, played on regional Silver Stick teams coached by his dad, Steve, and others. He later studied at Brock University and played for the junior C Chippewa River Hawks, before returning to Renfrew. This season, the Timberwolves’ coaching staff will include returning assistant coach Mike Bredlaw and new assistant coach Danby Suckow. Brent Sylvester remains the general manager. At 28, Mulvihill remains passionate about a game that he fell in love with at a very young age. “We had lots of success,” he says of his minor hockey days. “And success breeds success. It’s one of those things. You understand the feel of winning, and it becomes contagious.” In school, Mulvihill was talented in cross-country running and as a hockey defenceman, but he chose

Rowat Insurance prevails Sports - The Abandoned Cubs led scoring after the first half of flight A in menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recreational league play at the Renfrew Golf Club. But Rowat Insurance rallied July 29 to win the two-week block with 89 points. The Cubs lost their grip on first, taking second with 87 points. The Bushwackers and Riopelle Painting shared third from a scoring system that awards three points for birdies, two points for pars, one point for bogeys, and no points for doublebogeys or worse.

Last-place Welch LLP slipped to the B flight, while Yemen Electric moved into the A flight after winning the most recent B flight with 82 points, just two up on Finnigans and Scottâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Shoes. The C flight title went to Schwartz Drywall, two points up on Pontiac. State Farm Insurance had a four-point cushion over runner-up Swatters in the D flight. Closest-to-the-pin winners were Paul Simard on No. 2, Steve Mulvihill (4), Keith Bilson (14) and Bill Bowles (17). The random-draw winners were Bob Bilmer and Paul Simmonds.

Bishop ready for Moscow challenge Sports For the second straight year, Melissa Bishop of Eganville is having the season of her middle-distance running career. But Bishop, as she prepares to race in her first world track and field championships, knows there are no guarantees for success. Last year, despite becoming the third Canadian women to break the coveted two-minute barrier for 800 metres, she was easily eliminated in opening round of heats at the Olympics in London. Next week, she competes in her first world championships — or IAAF (International Amateur Athletics Federation) World Championships — in Moscow after recently improving her personal best to 1 minute 59.76 seconds. As with almost all major international meets, there’s a good chance several heats in Moscow will feature slow-starting, fast-finishing strategy. Whatever happens in Moscow, Bishop, who turned 25 Monday, continues to learn more about how to race effectively in international fields. Case in point was her late-July Diamond League race in London, England, where she was well placed with

ATHLETICS CANADA

Melissa Bishop was eliminated in this first-round heat at the 2012 Olympics. 200 metres remaining, only to run into trouble. She ended up seventh in 2:00.72, just ahead of 2012 Olympic teammate Jessica Smith, as Brenda Martinez of the United States won in 1:58.19, with Elena Lavric of Romania second in 1:59.76. “Well, I’m not entirely sure my PB (personal best) dictates what will happen at Worlds. I had a very similar time going into the Olympics, so I can’t base this on time,” said Bishop from Kamen, Germany, where she has been staying with the other Canadians who competed in London. “The first round is so very tricky, and you can’t predict anything.

This year, though, I think I’m a more confident racer. So I’m hoping with that will come some bravery and an actual chance at getting to the final. My sights are set on a final.” She called her Diamond League race in London disappointing, despite running less than a second slower than her personal best. “Two-flat isn’t a horrible time, but I was hoping for something a bit quicker,” explained Bishop. “I got out hard and really tried to focus on getting to 600, but made a tactical error by being on the inside rail with 200 metres to go and the rest of the girls just came up on me and I got boxed in. Once I got around the corner and things started to open up my legs were shot. “I learn something new with every race, and I know I have race experience under my belt, but there is always room for improvement somewhere. It’s just a matter of tweaking little things in the race.” Meanwhile, training tells her she’s ahead of last year. “I don’t necessarily have key workouts; but the workouts themselves have been stepped up. Just in terms of target times for each interval, they are at least a half or full second faster than what

we would’ve hit last year. Otherwise, things have stayed almost the same,” she said. “We haven’t changed a lot,” she added in reference to herself and coach Dennis Fairall. “I think it’s just the building blocks of writing a training routine.” Fairall, who’s travelling with the team, said last Thursday’s workout in Kamen was 1,400 metres of speed-endurance, and Bishop looked in control and fast. “The Worlds preparation is going well,” said Fairall. “She’s physically and mentally ready to achieve her goals in Moscow.” Bishop agrees.

“After the Olympic racing experience, I think I’ve gained a sense of racing maturity,” she explained. “In working with a sport psychologist I have learned to prepare for the best-case scenario, but to also in the back of my head know what the worst case could be as well. “At the Olympics, I only expected the best case. I didn’t prepare for the whatif. I thought for sure I was good to get through to the semi-final; when I didn’t, my heart was broken. “So this year is different. Best case and what I am expecting is to make that final. But I’m also prepared for the what-if.

Walmart launches campaign Walmart Renfrew’s goal is $5,337 Community - Walmart Canada is gearing up for its annual cross-country campaign to raise crucial funds for Canadian Red Cross disaster response and preparedness activities. The campaign will run in Walmart stores from August 1 to 25, with an ambitious goal of raising $3 million, of which over $700,000 are matching funds from Walmart. “The funds raised through the Campaign will help ensure that the Canadian Red Cross is ready to respond when disasters strike in our community and communities across the province,” says spokesperson Judy Harms-Potter, Volunteer Operation Lead, Disaster Management Team. “We’re very excited to work with Walmart during this campaign and hope that Walmart customers and the Town of Renfrew community will continue their generous support of the Canadian Red Cross.” From the floods in Western Canada, the train derailment in Quebec

and extreme heat alerts in Southern Ontario to the Macro Burst in Calabogie last year, Red Cross is there in times of need for Canadians whose lives are disrupted due to disaster.” Supporting the Red Cross is easy. At the Walmart checkout, Walmart associates will give customers the opportunity to make a donation to support the work of the Canadian Red Cross in our community. Walmart Canada will match these donations up to $2,000 per store. The Canadian Red Cross is a member of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, which includes the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, the International Committee of the Red Cross and over 185 national Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. The Canadian Red Cross mission is to improve the lives of vulnerable people by mobilizing the power of humanity in Canada and around the world.

Lifestyle - This time of year, Mother engaged in a never-ending battle with the housefly. She thought every fly on earth was put there to carry germs and contaminate whatever surface it happened to land on. Many of our neighbours hung strips of sticky stuff from their ceilings, but Mother would have no part of them. No siree! Most of these strips were hung over the kitchen tables, since that seemed to be where the flies accumulated, and if one fly ever had the misfortune of falling off and landing on the oil cloth, or heaven forbid, a piece of food, the entire table would have to be cleared, scoured, and whatever food it neared, scraped into Sport’s dog dish at the back door! And so, the strips were never used in our kitchen! Every summer Father hauled the screen door from the drive shed where it had been stored over winter, and he hung it with a tight spring attached. The spring, on Mother’s insistence, was so taut that if you weren’t quick enough getting into the house, you could lose a leg, or be maimed for life! There was never enough money to buy fly swatters, and Mother insisted we each have one. So they were homemade. Fashioned out of narrow slats of wood, with layers of green cheese cloth, or sometimes, very fine screening attached on the end between more small slats, the swatters worked just fine. They were stationed on the bench at the back door, and each of us was commanded to have ours at the ready, just in case a fly managed to enter the house while we came in through the screen door. In the summer time, any food on the bake table, prepared for our next meal, was covered with spanking clean flour bag tea towels. And when the bowls were moved over to the kitchen table, the towels stayed put.

would get the broom, and I stood at the ready with the dust pan, and the sweep-up began. The flies didn’t have a chance. Audrey would sweep up the dead bodies; I would take the dustpan to the stove, amazed at how many had fallen under Mother’s attack. Mother would light a match to the papers in the stove after piling on a couple sticks from the wood box, and soon the Findlay Oval would be raging. The smell of the fly tox hung in the air for hours, but that didn’t seem to bother Mother in the least. The deed was done for a short spell. But, alas, the never-ending battle against the housefly continued until the frost hit the farm at the end of the summer.

Memories

It was like a mystery trying to decide which mound of white held the meat, potatoes or vegetables. When Mother couldn’t stand it any longer, she would announce at the breakfast table that this was the day! She would cast her eyes around the kitchen, and we wouldn’t even have to ask her just what day that would be. We knew without a doubt, it was the day Mother would be attacking the flies that managed, in spite of our best efforts to keep them out, got into the house. That meant no one, not even if the house was on fire, was allowed inside until Mother was finished with what my sister Audrey called “her murderous attack.” There was a big tin can of fly tox in the summer kitchen, and on the shelf was a contraption that had a container at one end, and a handle and cylinder at the other. Mother filled the can to capacity, put a white towel around her head, went into the kitchen slamming the doors behind her, and the attack began. I would often look in the kitchen window from my post outside, and there would be Mother furiously pumping the handle into the cylinder and pouring out what would be a burst of fog-like spray that hung in the air like gossamer curtains. I have no idea how Mother didn’t choke to death! As soon as she thought she had sprayed enough fly tox into the cavity of the kitchen, she would come out onto the back stoop, gasping for breath, the perspiration pouring down her face like falling rain, and a look of complete satisfaction on her beetred face. Then she would collapse into the twig chair, still with the spray can in her hand, and fan her face with the tail of her apron. We had to wait for ages before anyone was allowed back in the kitchen, and when we were, the grand clean-up began. The newspapers would be taken off the cooled Findlay Oval, rolled up and crammed into its fire box, Audrey

ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT AND TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES

Key to the Forestry

FORESTRY MANAGEMENT AND PLANNING

A final agreement will also set out the nature and scope of Algonquin participation in forestry management and planning, including representation on planning teams, both inside and outside of Algonquin Park. In addition, Ontario

will appoint at a minimum one person nominated by the AOO to the board of directors of the Algonquin Forestry Authority for Algonquin Park. Ontario continues its commitment to consultation with the AOO on any new forestry policy initiatives within the Settlement Area, including the forestry tenure and pricing review.

SATURDAY, JULY 20, 2013 9:00 am Civic #2250, County Road 31, Winchester, ON 613-774-7000 or 1-800-567-1797 Primary list at: www.rideauauctions.com R0012244917/0808

Opinion - Forested areas have been integral to the Algonquin way of life since time immemorial. The proposed Forestry Chapter of the Preliminary Draft Agreement-in-Principle (AIP) recognizes the importance of the forest industry in the Algonquin Settlement Area to both the Algonquins of Ontario (AOO) and their neighbours. The cornerstone of this Chapter is the commitment by the AOO and Ontario to work cooperatively to maintain support for the existing forest industry, while increasing Algonquin participation in, and benefits from the forestry sector. This commitment reflects the importance of forestry to the culture, economic stability and prosperity of the AOO. Through several proposed initiatives and collaborative partnerships, the Preliminary Draft AIP carves out more meaningful participation for the AOO within the forest industry. A number of proposed elements to be reflected in a Final Agreement are highlighted below.

Chapter is the development of economic opportunities and supporting measures to increase Algonquin employment and participation in the forest industry throughout the Settlement Area, including in Algonquin Park. These initiatives include: â&#x20AC;˘ notifying the AOO of government contracts and job opportunities related to forestry in Algonquin Park; â&#x20AC;˘ encouraging potential Algonquin employment, training and contract opportunities with Sustainable Forest License (SFL) holders; â&#x20AC;˘ the consideration of the potential for Algonquin benefits as a relevant factor when Ontario is evaluating tender bids or other government contracting procedures; â&#x20AC;˘ the provision of training opportunities by Ontario and the Algonquin Forestry Authority for the AOO in the forestry industry in Algonquin Park, including silviculture.

MOVING FORWARD

The AOO, Ontario and representatives for SFLs located within the Algonquin Settlement Area have already begun working together to address forestry matters related to the Algonquin treaty negotiations as well as to collaboratively develop economic opportunities to enhance the competitiveness of the region. As we move forward towards a historic modern-day treaty, the AOO are committed to working in partnership with Ontario and our neighbours to foster a sustainable forestry industry built on a foundation of economic prosperity, conservation and stewardship. This column is part of 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.

    PETER CLARK/METROLAND

Stacia Prince has started her second year in her interior design business. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be happy to help you with your home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My passion is design. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The best part of my job is the end result in seeing how happy people are with the space we have transformed, and really how much it affects them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every client is different, so I have to cater to a widerange of people and clients,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We ďŹ gure out what would best suit their lifestyle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of it is research and how they want to use the house. Are they entertainers? Are they a family? â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of it is ďŹ nding out the needs and wants of the client, which is an important role for me,â&#x20AC;? Prince said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The easy part is to make the space look beautiful, with whatever works for that client.â&#x20AC;? In some cases, the client requires an overall plan. It might be in two or three phases when they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford to do everything at once. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can make a schedule. We take whateverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in their

budget, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what we look at,â&#x20AC;? Prince said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The reality is, most people canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford to do everything at once.â&#x20AC;? Princeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest project so far has been Jason and Kathleen Wilsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house on Thomson Hill, which was a twoand-a-half-year project. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was very exciting,â&#x20AC;? Prince said. Photos are on her business website. Prince will be promoting her business at the Renfrew Fair this September and the Wilson house will be in the Renfrew Victoria Hospital Auxiliary Christmas Tour. She also did the home show back in March. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right now, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just trying to get my name out there,â&#x20AC;? she added.

News - Stacia Prince has her ofďŹ ce at 117 Raglan St. S., but her work is done elsewhere. Prince is starting her second year with her own business, Stacia Prince Designs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I launched my own interior design business last June,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I do anything from a new build, to renovations and additions.â&#x20AC;? Prince designs bathrooms and kitchens, and does colour consultations, space planning â&#x20AC;&#x201C; anything you require for your home. Prince graduated from Algonquin College in interior design, and then moved out to Vancouver for three years â&#x20AC;&#x153;for a wonderful experience. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was really nice, to see a different outlook. I feel like my styles have combined with the west coast and whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s here, so Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve kind of fused my own look,â&#x20AC;? Prince said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m really grateful for that time out there, so I feel like I have that expertise to bring back to the Renfrew area,â&#x20AC;? she said. Prince would like to educate the local people on her services. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It might not be familiar to some, hiring an interior designer. People might wonder actually what I do or the cost of things.â&#x20AC;? Her biggest goals are to save people time, money and stress. If somebodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s building a house worth $300,000 and investing in the layout, materials and all that, get it right the ďŹ rst time, Prince said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Instead of regretting it, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to invest all this money in a new home, why not hire somebody to make those decisions the ďŹ rst time around?â&#x20AC;? Project managing comes into play as well, being the middle person between the contractor and the home owner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I enjoy taking over a larger project and trying to make the job enjoyable,â&#x20AC;? Prince added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People say â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll never build a house again because of the stress, or itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s terrible to live through a renovation.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Well, my goal is to keep everyone as relaxed as possible, and be that person to bounce things off of.â&#x20AC;? Prince says she is doing what she loves.

Ghost Walk at museum a success Holly Mahusky McDougall Mill Museum

Community - On July 27 the McDougall Mill Museum hosted their second annual Ghost Walk. The night was a huge success welcoming in more that 100 people for tours. Visitors entered the 158-year-old building with only the light of their flashlights guiding them through three floors of ghost stories and tales from the Ottawa Valley. It was an eerie night that was filled with spooky fun for the entire family. Thank you to all who came out! If you didn’t have a chance to make it out this year, be sure to watch for the event next summer, as it will be bigger and better than ever! Brainstorming is already in the process and things are going to get a lot creepier!

On Saturday, Aug. 17 at 2 p.m. the McDougall Mill Museum will be hosting a new event for this year! Our Old Time Dairy Farm Exhibition will be located outside the Museum building. Our exhibition features a dairy demonstration (with a cow being brought in by Pinerille Farms), a Renfrew Cream Separator demonstration, and a tasting station. Patrons have the opportunity to try the cream separator and an old-fashioned butter churn. They also have the chance to try the fresh butter they have made at the end of the process! Admission for this event is $2 a person. For more information call 613432-2129, or check out our Facebook Page @ facebook.com/mcdougallmillmuseum Answer to last weeks trivia question was Mrs. Charlotte Whitton. This week’s trivia Question is: When was the McDougall Mill Museum opened for business?

Patients “speak up” at focus group A recent focus group provided a forum for discussion about patient safety and care at RVH from the patients’ perspective. “We have many mechanisms for feedback in place, but it is good to hear about opportunities to improve directly from our patients,” notes RVH CEO and President Randy Penney. Patients receiving care from different and in some cases multiple departments of the hospital (e.g., dialysis, emergency, surgical, oncology/chemotherapy, active care unit, complex continuing care) were invited to participate in the session. Key managers and department leads also attended to provide information and ask for suggestions to improve the patient experience in their specific departments. “The insights provided by patients and their family members helps us to plan changes and develop new initiatives for improvement,” says Jessica Gilbert, Clinical Nurse Manager, Active Care.

Communications was a key theme of the discussions and patients gave RVH overall high marks in the areas of providing both written and verbal information. Handouts and information packages on admittance and discharge are considered good resources, as well as the “8-steps to a safer hospital visit” posters, digital screens and information boards in patients’ rooms. Participants noted that staff readily provides explanations of who they are and their roles, and are very responsive. “When you speak to someone about an issue, it gets looked after” stated one patient. However, they’re not always sure who to speak to if they have questions or concerns and would like that information to be provided consistently in all communications. When it comes to the information shared with the public, participants felt that it is important to know about the full range of services and programs that are available at our community hospital, and would like to

see these topics revisited regularly, because “people only notice when it is relevant to them or someone they know.” In addition, participants said they would like to read more “good news” patient stories. In response to discussion around some physical aspects of the hospital facilities, Chris Ferguson, RVH Vice President of Patient Care Services, pointed out that: t DVSSFOUTFDPOEĘPPSSFOPWBUJPOTJODMVEF larger washrooms to improve access t QMBOT GPS UIF OFX OFQISPMPHZ DFOUSF incorporate more space/privacy for patients t QMBOOFE DIBOHFT to the parking system address challenges experienced related to patient drop-off, parking space, and parking meters.

“The focus group provided a way for us to engage the community, and the input we received helps us to set priorities for quality improvement,” says Ferguson, who led the discussions. “We appreciate the patients from the various units and family members who took the time to attend and voice their opinions,” she concludes. We welcome your comments or feedback anytime. Contact Chris Ferguson, RVH Vice President of Patient Care Services at 613432-4851 ext. 225.

Working collaboratively with patients and the community to identify quality improvement and ensure high levels of patient satisfaction are strategic goals of RVH and standards of Accreditation RVH patient and focus group participant Peter Mulder Canada’s Qmentum demonstrates some of the information brochures provided to Program. patients.
