News - When the Renfrew Fair was founded, its roots were strictly agricultural; a place where farmers could compare and showcase the fruits of their labour. The fairs of today are much broader in their scope, from demolitions derbies to midways, but agriculture remains at the heart of the Renfrew Agricultural Society’s five-day celebration. So it’s only fitting that two highlights of this year’s exhibition were directly related to agriculture. The Renfrew Fair set a record in the horse ring Sunday afternoon as 10 six-hitch teams competed for top honours in the heavy horse competition. Fair board secretary also noted an “awesome beef show” Sunday and great livestock shows earlier in the week. On Sunday a new Supreme Breeders Herd Class trophy was introduced in memory of Murray Crozier. The trophy, sponsored by the Renfrew County Cattlemen’s Association, will be presented annually. The inaugural winner was Charolais breeders Baker Farms of Madoc. Fair officials report that attendance was, on average, on par with other years and actually slightly up on Saturday from the previous year. Next month fair board members will meet to review the 2013 fair and begin setting plans for next year.

Town invests $1.5 million in Queen Street rehabilitation Lucy Hass lucy.hass@metroland.com

News - Major pain for major gain. That pretty well sums up the massive rehabilitation project underway on Queen Street in Renfrew. On the bright side, local residents inconvenienced since Aug. 1 stand to see great improvement to water and sewer services for years to come. Town of Renfrew director of development and works Mike Asselin said the town assessed the condition of road, water, sewer and sidewalk infrastructure throughout the town and the needs were many. After reviewing the overall condition of local municipal infrastructure, Queen Street was identified as its priority for water, wastewater, sidewalk and road rehabilitation. “Queen Street is a complex integrated project that replaces all underground infrastructure along with the above ground infrastructure,” says Asselin. “The project necessitates setting up of a temporary water service to ensure residents continue to obtain service. Sanitary bypass pumping is required to divert sanitary

sewer flows.” Every year municipal council allocates funds for infrastructure projects, and the price tag is steep. “The work is very expensive to complete and must take into consideration the underground pipes and manholes as well as surface features like roads and sidewalks,” he says. “The town makes application to obtain federal and provincial funding to support projects and in 2013 the Town was among many municipalities that were not successful in receiving funding assistance for infrastructure projects,” says Asselin. Undeterred, Renfrew council decided to proceed with the project using town funds. “In 2012 the town proceeded with the design of the Queen Street rehabilitation design and in 2013 the project was tendered and proceeded to construction,” says Asselin. The Queen Street project estimate was $1.5 million for about 600 metres of road or $2,500 per linear metre of road. “To put things into perspective, the town has approximately 63,000 metres of road

which translates to approximately $160 million of road water and sewer assets on the streets,” Asselin explains. The project was tendered and closed at a cost of $1.32 million. “The project was awarded to BEI who maintain a local presence in Renfrew,” says Asselin. The Queen Street project is funded though the gas tax reserve and municipal water and sewer funds. “This project is using up two years worth of infrastructure funding allocation,” the director adds. The project design was awarded to exp. Consulting Engineers in 2012 and the design was completed in early 2013 in preparation for tendering and construction. “The Town has obtained all necessary approval from the Ministry of Environment in the form of an Environmental Compliance Approval,” Asselin says. “The schedule will see the underground work completed along with the first lift of asphalt by fall 2013 and final landscaping and final asphalt completed in spring 2014.”

NEWS Transport truck cab is demolished

Connected to your community

News - Horton firefighters Kyle Schroeder (foreground) and Daryl Eady prepare this damaged Robin Larocque Transport truck for towing after the driver drove off Highway 17 early afternoon Sept. 4. The driver, whom OPP allege fell asleep at the wheel, was charged with careless driving. The truck was headed to British Columbia with props for a movie company. The trailer was basically undamaged, but the truck cab appeared to be a write-off. At right, a High Road Maintenance official, left, leaves the scene of this single tractor-trailer accident Sept. 4. He is accompanied by Horton Fire Chief Randy Corbin, centre, and investigating officer Const. Ryan Besner of the Renfrew OPP. The driver of the Robin Larocque Transport truck was charged with careless driving after leaving Highway 17, near Storyland Road, and crashing through fencing and brush 100 metres away.

Community - Some lucky people became instant prize winners at the 2013 Renfrew Fair. Bill Regan was the recipient of the Renfrew Lions Club’s 50-50 draw. Although the total amount of his winnings wasn’t finalized as of the 5 p.m. draw time Sunday, Regan’s ticket will be worth more than $2,500 in cash. Al Vossen of North Bay showed his support for the Renfrew Major Midget Timberwolves. Putting down five dollars has earned him a box to the Sept. 25 Ottawa Senators pre-season game against the Montreal Canadiens for Vossen and 14 friends. St. Patrick’s Parish of Mount St. Patrick held its early bird draw for $100. Josephine Blimkie of nearby Shamrock was the lucky winner. The parish’s main draw will be held at the St. Patrick’s supper Sept. 29.

In thanks for her dedicated service, the Council and staff of the Township of McNab/Braeside will be hosting an open-house for Connie’s colleagues and friends to share in the celebration of her retirement as Treasurer for the Township of McNab/Braeside. The open-house is being held at the Arnprior Golf Club Friday, September 20th between 1:00 and 5:00 p.m. R0012303331

Keep an eye out for kids EDITORIAL

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that time of the year again when Ottawa motorists start seeing a lot more yellow on the road in the morning. Starting in September, fleets of school buses flood our streets as children return to elementary and high schools. Most schools welcome students back the day after Labour Day, but the French public and Catholic boards opened a week earlier. The colour yellow in motoristâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s language always translates to one word: caution. Motorists must keep their eyes open for children waiting on street corners. Kids will be kids, which usually means they are in constant motion. We must always remember the first rule of defensive driving: expect the unexpected. Children tend to offer a lot of unexpected behaviour, which occasionally involves a mad dash across the street chasing a ball or a friend waiting at a bus stop. Drivers would do well to drive a little more slowly the first few weeks of September. They might also want to reacquaint themselves with the rules of driving when approaching a stopped school bus with its lights flashing. The flashing lights mean cars must come to a halt to allow children to board the bus.

It also allows children and parents to safely cross the street. By law, traffic in both directions must stop anytime a school bus is stopped with its overhead alternating signal lights flashing. Yes, this causes delays. But the dangers of stealing a few minutes of commute time by sneaking past a stopped school bus can be tragic, creating the potential of hitting a child and possibly ending their life. After that, those stolen minutes suddenly wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem quite so important. If the danger of hitting a child with your vehicle isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t reason enough, failing to stop for a school bus can result in a $400 to $2,000 fine upon conviction and six demerit points given to a motoristâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s license. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only for a first conviction. Each subsequent offence can result in fines ranging from $1,000 to $4,000 together with six demerit points and possible imprisonment up to six months. Staying alert while behind the wheel and being aware of the rules of the road governing school buses is everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s responsibility. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all winners if we educate ourselves about the rules of the road and school bus safety.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Renfrew mayor and councillors live in dream world To the editor: Sometimes I find it hard to believe that Mayor Ringrose and some of our town councillors actually live in Renfrew. While the rest of us watch our basic infrastructure that we use every day to live crumble around us, these guys want to borrow more money to build a pool that nobody will use for most of the year.

Obstruction in the Duffy-Wright scandal To the editor: It is parliamentary tradition for the prime minister to â&#x20AC;&#x153;prorogueâ&#x20AC;? halfway through parliaments and reset agendas with Throne Speeches, but it is less usual for prime ministers like Stephen Harper to thereby abolish 20 sitting days at a time of political heat; for key details remain missing about the links between the $90,000 cheque that Harperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right-hand man and chief of staff Nigel Wright wrote to cover Senator Mike Duffyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fraudulent expenses, and the subsequent Tory Senatorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; report whitewashing that fraud, but now there is yet again one less opportunity for investigation. Harper

The Renfrew Mercury 35 Opeongo Road, Renfrew, Ontario , c/o 80 Colonnade Rd. N. Unit 4, Nepean ON K2E 7L2

Perhaps where they live the streets are paved with gold, all the underground pipes are shiny and new and the sidewalks are straight and level. Where many people in Renfrew live the streets are patches on patches on patches, the pipes are old and deteriorating and a lot of the sidewalks are in rough shape or worse, nonexistent. Apparently something like 36 per cent of the residents would like to have a pool

but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll bet 100% of the taxpayers in Renfrew would like to have good roads, water and sewer pipes etc. The fact that the mayor and council will add to the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s substantial debt (13 million dollars and counting) to dig this expensive hole in the ground is just, well, mind-boggling. They just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to get it. We need real leadership in Renfrew if we do not want to end up

like the province we live in, where the interest on the debt takes a huge chunk out of the budget. Does anyone really think interest rates will stay this low forever? This mayor and council donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a mandate to run up the debt while ignoring the daily needs of the citizens of this town. Stan Russell Renfrew

has already used prorogations to his benefit in dodging a non-confidence motion and the Afghan detainee abuse files, and in the beginning of this recent scandal responded suspiciously to demands for answers as to what he already knew. First, Harper took days to fire Wright or say anything at all about the affair, even making a public speech on the Senate expenses scandal without whatsoever mentioning the separate Wright scandal, before then escaping to Peru â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as if the â&#x20AC;&#x153;clear truthâ&#x20AC;? of his later proclaimed innocence was still being decided. Then Conservative MPs voted down a motion for Harper, Duffy, and Wright to testify before the ethics committee. It would seem reasonable for Harper to now refuse further statements that could prejudice the RCMP investigation, but the RCMPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s role

is to determine whether Wright committed the criminal offence of a bribe, not to unravel all the political pressures that likely motivated the chief of staff in the first place. (Though Harper did deny the RCMPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s potential finding that Conservative Party managers secretly considered a $32,000 deal with Duffy.) The MPs who initially praised Wrightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s payout as â&#x20AC;&#x153;honourableâ&#x20AC;? and Duffyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s repayments as â&#x20AC;&#x153;leadershipâ&#x20AC;? have since been appointed to cabinet. And neither Wright nor Duffy has denied that the prime minister originally knew of the cheque, only that he did not know of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;meansâ&#x20AC;? of resolving Duffyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s repayments to the public. Harper will not even admit that he is at least responsible for having appointed Duffy in the first place.

None of this behaviour proves beyond doubt that the prime minister was responsible for a secret political bribe, but as Harper once observed as an opposition leader, it is a sign of guilt when a politician is not forthcoming. Hidden plots against Canadians are nothing new for a government that caused the 2011 election through hiding F-35 prices, muzzles scientists, or sneaks through Trojan Horses like crammed anti-environmental â&#x20AC;&#x153;budgetâ&#x20AC;? bills, the quiet 31-year treaty sell-out to China, or the quiet gutting of CBC bargaining independence. Let us not forget this scandal before the Harper Conservatives become pro-active in demanding and finding answers, not while they continue being obstructive. Stefan Klietsch Renfrew

Litterbugs urged to clean up their act along Fraser Road To the editor: Opinion - My husband and I own a home on Hurd’s Lake. Between Aug. 26 and 28, we travelled Fraser Road between Lakeview Lane and Burnstown Road, gathering refuse that had been flung from vehicles. I attach photographs of what we found. I was dismayed to learn that there are still some people who have so little regard for their community and the health of the planet that they pitch Pepsi and Budweiser cans and water bottles and Player’s Light packages and chocolate milk cartons and McDonald’s refuse into the road.

Another opinion on biblical truths To the editor: Opinion - There seems to be alot of confusion about “Biblical truths” and what laws we are to follow. I am not a biblical scholar nor do I pretend to be without sin in my life, but I have learned that there are three types of law in the Bible. Ceremonial, which was the law before Christ. Used to make atonement and live pure, clean lives according to God. Civil law was the law of the times and country in which you lived. Moral law which is the law according to God and should always be kept, for example the Ten Commandments. ow some will argue about the Ten commandments as well, so we should understand that God’s laws are designed to keep us safe, healthy, and close to Him. When we do things that remove us from Him, that is when we should be concerned. Any and all sin drives a wedge between us and God. Sexual immorality, anger, hate, lies, deceit

are just some of the examples. The number one thing as a christian is to believe in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour. If you don’t believe that one thing, then the Bible has no meaning for you. It is through Grace we are saved. It is a gift, freely given. Yet we must confess and repent, turn from our wicked ways, not embrace them and ask others to do the same. All things we do, and decisions we make have consequences. When we choose something we should ask ourselves “Is this pleasing and honourable to the Lord?” Let’s address the simple issue of the example given in a previous letter regarding the law of owning slaves. That would be an example of civil law. People of biblical times were slaves due to poverty, debt, or crime. They were treated as people and not property. Don’t confuse the word slave with the picture of the 1700’s plantation era. They are not one in the same. Jesus tells us to be

a servant to others. Serving one another in love. Now the hot topic of homosexuality. God and Christians do and should rebuke the sin not the sinner, in our own lives as well as others. God loves all of us. We are all guilty in His eyes. We need to seek His forgiveness with the difference being our constant strive to improve to please the Lord. Any and all of us should not be boastful or proud, regardless of circumstances. We should not use man made ideas as commands of God. Substituting His law for our traditions in which we would like to partake. Most people can twist and paraphrase the Bible to make it say whatever they want. Yet each person seeking truth should carefully read and study God’s Word. God encourages us to have a personal relationship with Him. As we grow in that He will reveal to us His truths. Another important factor is to remember sin is sin. God has no level of

sin. That is a man made perception. Picture it as if you were allergic to something and could not be around it, or have any contact with it without it poisoning you. That is sin. There are many sins to concern ones self with we must search inside ourselves and discover what our personal weaknesses are. I will say that one of the most discussed sins in the Bible is sexual immorality. It doesn’t always describe in detail what exactly that means and that is why we must search the word, pray, and seek God’s truths and wisdom in our daily lives. Like it or not the New testament speaks of marriage as husband and wife, man and woman, and only through that are we to share sexual intimacy. We are to seek God’s laws to make us Holy and not always happy. Life isn’t all about pleasing ourselves, but pleasing our creator in all things. Joanne Roesler Renfrew

Society following a curious direction, values reverse To the editor: Our society has been following a curious direction in the past few decades. A reversal of values. Basic decency is corny. Sex is used to sell everything from washing machines to pickup trucks. City boys are being taught

to speak with a lisp. From womb to tomb we’re expected to wallow in the warm selfish bath of conformity with no personal responsibility. Somehow our liberalminded society decided to toss out the healthy guidelines in the Holy Bible.

Public invited to 2013 county plowing match To the editor: Opinion - Everyone in Renfrew County is invited to celebrate the incredible history and culture of our local agricultural community at the annual Renfrew County Plowing Match. This year the premier event is being hosted in the heart of the county at Highway 60 and Northcote Rink Road between Douglas and Renfrew. Your hosts, Austin and Velma Berry along with Bob Briscoe and Karen Hoad, want you to learn about where our local food comes from, and how agriculture is a huge part of our local economy. Along with the best food in Renfrew County, you can spend the day with your children in the expanded Kids Zone or stroll through the Tent City of crafts and industry trade displays. You can watch the Queen and Princess of the Furrow Competition or listen to many local musicians. Breakfast is served by Renfrew County 4-H Clubs and you can enjoy wagon rides and see the many animal displays. Admission is only $7.50 and children under 12 are always free. Can you think of a better way to enjoy a Saturday than visiting this annual event? Remember, if you ate today, thank a farmer. Better yet, come out on Saturday and thank a local farmer in person! R. Bruce McIntyre Renfrew County Plowing Match

Some have decided to omit the parts of the Bible that don’t serve their immediate physical and mental urges. Some of our society today feels that a fulfilled life is about indulging in anything that satisfies the flesh and mind. Some even take pride in it. It may explain why they attack the person and the Bible when sin and selfcontrol are mentioned. The truth is, we would have a little more peaceful world if everyone kept whatever sexual orientation they have, in the privacy of their own home instead of parading them across our TV screens and school curriculums. Yvonne Dienesch’s letter in the Aug. 29 Mercury rightly talked about the sin of homosexuality in the kind-

est terms. As she said, we don’t judge the sinner, just the sin. We all respond when any of the media try to slide sin under the table of inclusiveness, equity or diversity. God hasn’t changed. The Bible hasn’t changed. The New Testament didn’t cancel the guidelines of the Old Testament but in fact added to it. God did give us a choice though. We can satisfy the flesh or become more spiritual by self-denial. For all of us, it’s a continual battle that isn’t made any easier when the media encourages the reversal of healthy values.

Separate bylaws: noise, fireworks Steve Newman

STEVE NEWMAN/METROLAND

Threatens to to resign, but Whyte still recreation chair Steve Newman

steve.newman@metroland.com

News - Enough was enough. So felt Horton Coun. Margaret Whyte, who offered to resign as chairman of the township’s recreation committee in July, only to be convinced to stay on. At Horton’s Sept. 3 council meeting — and council’s first monthly meeting since early July — Whyte summarized the minutes of the July 17 recreation committee meeting. At that July 17 meeting, Whyte was urged to remain on as chairman through a motion moved by Dave Bennett and seconded by Bob Johnston. The unanimously-supported motion said the recreation committee would not accept Whyte’s resignation and asked her to take some time to reconsider her decision. “When she raised the issue (or resigning) in the first place, it was a surprise,” said Horton chief administrative officer Mackie McLaren. At a special council meeting July 5, Whyte had expressed concerns that she tried to build a trust with committee members, but that the expected teamwork didn’t materialize. Noting several members of the recreation committee had resigned over the two and a half years she has been chair, she questioned if the reasons they gave were valid or if there were deeper issues involved that no one would come forward about.

In a subsequent special council meeting Aug. 7, Whyte indicated she would stay on as chair. However, she said she still felt like she was banging her head against the wall due to lack of communication between council and committee members. One such issue, where there have been apparent communication issues, has involved discussion of Ottawa River waterfront property that the township could consider purchasing for use as a public beach. In the Aug. 7 meeting, Bob Johnston said he was extremely upset that the matter was not discussed by recreation committee members before council considered such a proposal. Lack of communication between council and recreation committee members was the main reason behind her plan to resign, Whyte told The Mercury. “It’s busy, and I probably take it too seriously. There was just too much miscommunication, and the appearance of a team was not there. I had a difficult time getting everyone on board and having a team effort. “I’m used to team nursing,” added the retired nurse, “and recreation and council didn’t seem to be melding, and I didn’t feel I was accomplishing what I wanted to accomplish in the timeline I wanted. “I think I had to bring it to a head to get people refocused and working as a team, and respecting each other’s differences and

sides they were coming from. I was feeling frustrated.” With a recreation budget of over $300,000, Whyte says there’s a lot of fundraising to do — for the operating budget, rink roof and community hall expansion. “So, it’s very time consuming for everybody, and I felt I needed to bring both teams together and get us working with each other. The initiative and the drive was there, but people needed to talk more to open the issues up, and get everybody refocused.” Since July, Whyte says there has been “buy in” from council and the committee to support all three major fundraising projects.

Horton council is working to complete separate bylaws to deal with noise and fireworks. Discussion over the last few months has resulted in somewhat of an impasse over what to do with fireworks. So council is now looking to develop a separate fireworks bylaw, so noise issues can be dealt with sooner rather than later. The separation, says Coun. Bob Kingsbury, will give bylaw enforcement officer James McBain something to work with. The noise bylaw would contain some reference to fireworks, including hours of operation. Revisions to the current noise bylaw will be reviewed at the Sept. 17 planning committee meeting, then likely go to the Oct. 1 council meeting for approval. Recent changes include noise restrictions (85 decibels) for motorized vehicles, including off-road motorcycles and all-terrain vehicles, and start times for construction work in gravel pits. On Oct. 22, a special meeting is planned to hear the views of Bob Cassidy and Terry Johnston. Cassidy favours a year-round schedule for fireworks, while Johnston says their use should be restricted to special days and holidays. Kingsbury says the 4 p.m. meeting will be an attempt “to see if we can come to a middle ground. Even though we may not satisfy 100 per cent both of their views, I think there’s middle ground that would be satisfactory to both sides.” See BYLAWS, page 13

www.cherylgallant.com Parliament Prepares for a New Session As a Parliamentary Democracy, Canadians benefit from an historic, democratic tradition that dates back to 1215 in England and the signing of the Magna Carta. As the inheritors of that democratic tradition and the decision by Prime Minister Stephen Harper to prorogue the House of Commons, Canadians can look forward to a fresh start with a new fall session of Parliament. A Speech from the Throne to mark a new session of Parliament is our way of enriching Canada’s parliamentary tradition and sharing that tradition with all Canadians. At no point in our history can Canadians be more proud of the high esteem other countries hold Canada and the strides we have made as the best place on earth to live! Many constituents ask me what the terms “session,” “prorogue,” and “parliament” mean, and how it applies to a modern democratic nation like Canada. A Parliament is the period of time elected Members exercise their powers as representatives of the people. The parliamentary time period is divided into sessions. Sessions are divided into sittings. The historical practice of ending a session by prorogation was a common practice from Confederation until 1940 and the wartime situation. Transparency and accountability, trademarks of this government, are evident every time Prime Minister Stephen Harper rises in the House of Commons to speak. As has been said previously, we stand on the shoulders of those who have gone before us. It is important to keep our democratic traditions intact. What would you like to see in the Speech From the Throne? Please, let me know so that I can let you exercise your royal prerogative! (Phone or go to www.cherylgallant. com/throne-speech) As your Federal Member of Parliament, I am pleased to represent you on a variety of issues. Whether that issue is eliminating the long gun registry, promoting agriculture, international trade, AECL, the military or jobs in the working forest, I am here to serve you! As always, if you have any concerns of a federal nature, or just want to share your views with me, please do not hesitate to contact my office.

Hortonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beach sub-committee now exploring second property steve.newman@metroland.com

News - â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re probably somewhere around the onethird mark.â&#x20AC;? So says Horton chief administrative officer Mackie McLaren, when asked how much more work is to be done by the beach sub-committee heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chairing. The committee was established earlier this year, with the mandate of providing short- and long-range budgets and plans for the development of the former Timbertown property into a park and/or beach. The sub-committee is also being asked to make one of three

recommendations regarding the Timbertown land: 1. develop; 2. donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t develop; or 3. dispose of the property. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s likely the committee wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have finished its work until around the New Year, estimates McLaren. The original estimate was later this year, but now the committee has added the Ottawa River property of Joel and Sherri Elliott property at 25 Farrellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Landing Road to its mandate. The Farrellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Landing property is next to the original start of Opeongo Road. This was the 19th-century settlement â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;highwayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; into Renfrew County.

The township has now entered into an option with the Elliott family, which puts the sale of their property on hold for up to nine months while the town carries out its due diligence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That due diligence is to review the townshipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s terms of reference for the beach committee, appraise the property and have public input,â&#x20AC;? explained McLaren. In return, the Elliottâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s are receiving $17,500, which will become the down payment if the township decides to purchase the property of about threequarters of an acre. If Horton doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t buy the property, the cheque will be re-

turned, minus interest charges.

Halifax singer-songwriter to take to Burnstown stage derek.dunn@metroland.com

Events â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a rare treat to take in a live concert at Neat Coffee Shop on an autumn afternoon. But this Sunday, starting at 4 p.m., the treat is even sweeter as the musical-Mecca locale in Burnstown welcomes Juno nominee Jenn Grant. The P.E.I. born Haligonian singer-songwriter is something of a veteran of the indie scene, having four albums to her name. She will test drive material for a ďŹ fth during the current tour that includes dates with Ron Sexsmith. Her latest record, The Beautiful Wild, is slightly more serious and sophisticated than Honeymoon Punch. And while ďŹ ckle fans like album-to-album consistency from their artists, others appreciate the chances and distinct atmosphere performers like Grant bring. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m all about making interesting music and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see who likes that,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to get a sense from the audience what works and what doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, but I think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m done with caring about commercial expectations.

Grant is working hard at her song-writing, which is infused with romantic East Coast themes such as the ocean and broad skies.

Mayor Don Eady noted that the bulldozer required for the job, which remains at the Horton landďŹ ll, represents a big investment by Dedo. Horton pays Dedo about $35,000 year, including less than $30,000 for weekly garbage covering and compaction.

News - Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a call that paramedics Brad Smith, Sean Plunkett, Mathieu Grenier and Kody Koepsel will long remember. Each played a pivotal role in saving the life of a snowmobiler whose machine went through the ice Feb. 12, 2012 on Calabogie Lake. Because of their actions that afternoon, under difficult conditions that included deep snow and a troublesome, steep lakeside embankment, they will be recognized with the N.H. McNally Award Sept. 26 during the Ontario Association of Paramedic Chiefs annual meeting in Richmond Hill. Smith is a Horton resident, while Plunkett lives in Renfrew, Grenier in Gatineau, Que., and Koepsel in Pembroke. Even though the rescue efforts occurred more than a year and a half ago, Renfrew paramedics Smith and Plunkett say memories of that day remain strong. In fact, for quite some time Smith had several restless nights with images of the snowmobiler struggling in the water and Smith later being flipped into the water. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve lost a lot of night sleep, just seeing him floating in the water and everything that could have happened,â&#x20AC;? said Smith. Plunkett and Smith were dropping off a patient at Renfrew Victoria Hospital, when a Code 4 (urgent) call came in from Calabogie Lake. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because it was Seanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s turn to drive, I started getting on my heavy pants and mitts. It was a cold day,â&#x20AC;? recalls Smith, whose working companion that day was student-paramedic Koepsel, now a part-time Renfrew County paramedic. Nearby, the hydro dam was still running, so a call was made to stop the dam and tend to the snowmobiler. Meanwhile, one snowmobiler was leaning out of a canoe heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d found on the shore about 100 metres away and hanging on to the helmet of the snowmobiler whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d crashed through the ice. Smith, Plunkett and Koepsel arrived together, while district manager Grenier arrived shortly afterwards. Paramedics arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t trained in water-safety rescues, but they pursued a rescue attempt with the help of another canoe found close by, as Koepsel grabbed more rope from the ambulance. The exhausted snowmobiler continued to hang on to his friend, who remained in the water, until Smith replaced the first rescuer and hung on to water-logged snowmobiler. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I got a grip on his jacket. The only things above the water were his head and his helmet,â&#x20AC;? said Smith, who had a rope tied around his chest that Plunkett were pulling on gently, in efforts to bring both closer to the thicker ice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The (rescue) guy was yelling and saying he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hold on,â&#x20AC;? recalled Plunkett. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The guy in the water still had his helmet on. He was so heavy (with the combination of being over 200 pounds and saturated with water) that when Smith and two firemen eventu-

$15 million lawsuit follows son’s death Continued from front

She says she hopes the case helps bring improvements to the medical system so deaths, like her son’s, don’t happen again. Vander Galien is suing the Brockville hospital and the attending physician for negligent care, following Jeff Van Dyke’s death on Aug. 7, 2011. She launched the suit last month on behalf of herself and Jeff’s daughter, Allanah Alexis Mae Van Dyke. Allanah is two years old living in a foster home under the auspices of the Children’s Aid Society. Vander Galien says she has barely a nickel to her name after spending about $35,000 to prepare the lawsuit. Dr. Thomas filed a statement of defence last month in which he denied all of Vander Galien’s allegations except the reference to Jeff Van Dyke being transferred to the intensive care unit the morning of Aug. 7, 2011. Dr. Thomas’s defence states that the care and treatment of Van Dyke met or exceeded accepted and approved standards of medical practice under the circumstances. “All medical care and treatments,” says his defence, “were carried out in a careful, competent and diligent manner, and in accordance with the appropriate standards of medical practice.” The hospital has subsequently filed its own statement of defence. “Beyond that, we can’t comment because it’s going before the courts,” said Maggie Wheeler, Brockville General Hospital’s chief of communication and engagement.

Jeff Van Dyke checked into the hospital on Aug. 5, 2011 with a partial bowel obstruction, but died two days later of what the hospital says was an enlarged heart, or cardiomegaly. REGISTERED NURSE

Mae Vander Galien, who is a registered nurse whose work experience included working at Brockville General Hospital in 1974, has worked as a nurse for more than 35 years. Her last work was at Renfrew’s Bonnchere Manor, but she stopped work in 2011. Ironically, Van Dyke did not die from a bowel obstruction. Three times in his life, twice as a child and once in 2001, he experienced life-threatening complete bowel obstructions. But this time the partial bowel obstruction was resolved after entering the hospital, as shown by the x-ray taken 31 hours after he was admitted, says Mae. She says medications, which he should never have been administered in the first place because of a morphine allergy, led to the collapse of his lungs and eventual death. She also alleges that Van Dyke’s wife had informed hospital staff that the patient was allergic to morphine. Mae’s statement of claim documents 26 administrations of drugs, including 15 doses of hydromorphone, over 46 hours, by hospital staff. The other drugs were Gravol or Zaphran, which she says are suppressants of the central nervous system. “If they’d looked at the (second) x-ray, they would have seen that the (bowel) ob-

struction had been resolved, and they would have stopped all the medication they gave him,” said Mae. The hospital staff gave her son enough medication to kill a man or two without morphine allergies, she alleges. “I think the (second) x-ray was read right after he died because it was signed, but not dated,” said Mae, noting the x-rays taken at admission and shortly before his death were signed and dated. Furthermore, argues Mae, the autopsy report shows there was no indication of heart disease. Jeff is the adopted son of Mae Vander Galien and her first husband, Bill Van Dyke, to whom she was married for 31 years. Currently separated from her second husband, Maynard Vander Galien of AdmastonBromley, she says her only personal support has come from a sister-in-law in British Columbia, and a sister who lives nearby. Jeff was adopted by Mae and Bill Van Dyke when he was seven-years-old. He was also, according to a tribute written by former Athens elementary school teacher Mary Mueller for his funeral, as “the kindest, gentlest, most trusting person it was every my privilege to have in my classroom.” At the time, Jeff lived with his daughter and wife in Brockville and received a disability pension. Jeff Van Dyke died three days before his 33rd birthday, but his adopted mother says he should have been able to go home shortly after his admission to hospital at 1:37 a.m. on

Aug. 5. Mae says nursing records show Jeff was walking about shortly after midnight, on Aug. 7. “All of his medications should have been discontinued, but he continued to get massive amounts of hydromorphone, Zofran and Gravol, and three anesthetics that depress your nervous system,” Mae told The Mercury. “He was allergic to morphine. He had enough medicine to kill two men that weren’t allergic.” Her statement of claim says hydromorphone “still has a high risk to cause death, as it can easily induce respiratory stress, especially when the amount administered is excessive.” ‘COLLAPSED LUNGS’

Her statement of claim says Jeff’s “lungs had collapsed; his death was unrelated to the condition for which he was admitted to the hospital.” A chest x-ray, done Aug. 6 in the morning, indicated his lungs had gone from clear to collapsed. But the issue was not addressed, as indicated by the repeated doses of medication, says Mae’s statement of claim. Mae says hospital records show staff checked with Jeff at 12:30 a.m. Aug. 7, then not again until 7:50 a.m., when he was found in distress. At 9:30 a.m., after being transferred to the intensive care unit, he died.

AUTUMN ACTIVITY

The bluebirds come to our home in the spring, but most of all in September when they are busy flying around going in and out of our bird boxes and having a bath in the bird bath. A lot more activity from the blue jays and robins which have returned in greater numbers during September to feed on berries. The male hummingbirds have gone, but the females are busy as ever fighting over who will control the two feeders on our front porch. Regina Puhalski NEW SEASON IS ALMOST HERE

Here in the Northern Hemisphere, southbound shorebird migration is well under way.

JIM FERGUSON Scene from the Hawk’s Eye Many shorebird species that nest in the Arctic have already begun their journeys to wintering grounds in Central and South America. Researchers have used colour marking techniques to help them obtain reports on birds such as sandpipers, plovers, yellowlegs and snipes as they travel to other areas. If you encounter shorebirds as part of your bird watching activities in the weeks to come, you may want to keep your eyes peeled for colour bands and/or colour flags on their legs. Visit the Environment Canada website, www. ec.gc.ca to learn more about the flag colours used by various countries and for instructions on how to report sightings of colour banded shorebirds. THEY NEED SPACE

If you have been out birding you will notice the flocks of European starlings and swallows, perching on hydro and telephone wires. You will also notice that they seem to be evenly spaced along the wire. This is not a random situation, LUCY HASS/METROLAND this is done on purpose. The birds require a certain amount of space wherever they go. Even while feeding in flocks they maintain a small space between them. This reduces the number Greg and son Jake Redmond of Arnprior were among the spectators at the Raptor show of hostile encounters that use up energy needed at the Renfrew Fair Saturday afternoon. Below, the eagle was a hit with the crowd. for migration and may even result in injury.

INJURIES

Mark Boisvenue saw two male loons on Astrolabe Lake at Logos Land in an aggressive encounter this week and later found a dead loon floating in the water. Aggressive encounters may result in one of the birds being killed and we suspect that this is what happened in this case. Territory is extremely important when the birds are incubating eggs and when the young are learning to swim and capture their own food. The birds will meet in a neutral area of a lake or river and no aggression is shown; it is only near the nesting sites that encounters between males become vicious. Enjoy your birding.

18 The Renfrew Mercury EMC - Thursday, September 12, 2013

R0022279898

Don Anderson witnessed a broad-winged hawk involved in a close encounter with a tractor trailer. He said that the bird did not strike the vehicle but may have been stunned by the sharp turn it had to make to avoid a collision. The bird fell to the side of the road and did not move. Don returned to where the bird landed and he found no blood, the bird did not flop around as if it had a damaged wing and its eyes were alert and bright. Other than remaining very still the hawk appeared unharmed. To evade any further injury Don placed the bird away from the busy highway out of harm’s way. Once it had recovered from the experience it would seek its own protection, shelter and food. Hawks are very sensitive to handling and are best left on their own to recover if there is no visible damage or broken parts.

Golden Age Crossing

Wide range of services available to local seniors Kayla Menkhorst Golden Age Activity Centre

Community - Our community is a diverse community with many different groups of people from many different walks in life. In fact many of our residents in Renfrew and neighbouring areas are in the Golden Age – retirement age! And with the Golden Age comes getting out an about in the community. There are many different things throughout Renfrew that is available for our Seniors, including the new Golden Age Activity Centre.

The Golden Age Activity Centre is a drop in centre, downtown Renfrew, open for all Seniors aged 50 and up to come out to programs, or just drop in for some socializing. We have puzzles, board games, computers (coming soon!), yard sale items, cards, magazines, books, music, movies and so much more. Some of our current programs include Euchre, Line Dancing, Yoga, Computer Classes, among others like Entertainment. In fact, why not come out on Friday, Sept. 13 at 1p.m. as part of the Alzheimer’s National Coffee Break Day and enjoy coffee, poetry

readings and music by Barbara Tomasini? This centre is made feasible through a grant with the Ontario Trillium Foundation as well as all of the businesses, organizations and individuals in town and the neighbouring areas who have contributed items, their time and so much more to ensure that the Senior’s Centre is a success. Without your support, none of this would have been feasible. Along with the Senior’s drop in centre, there are many other places in town that offer great seniors programming and we want to work together as a community to make sure that there

are lots of opportunities for seniors to get out and about. Every week we will be writing about what is coming up at Golden Age Activity Centre, as well as what other opportunities are in Renfrew for those in the “Golden Age”. This article will include tips for seniors, exciting news and more. Keep tuned every week. If you want to ensure your program, event or organization is included in here to ensure we are reaching all seniors, please contact Kayla at the Golden Age Activity Centre at 613-4318289 or goldenage@nrtco.net.

Peace Walk Sept. 14 at Galiee Retreat rest in the beautiful grounds and to discuss the day with others. There will then be a communal meal made as possible from the Galilee Gardens and local suppliers. While not quite perhaps a 100 Mile Meal it will be pretty close, to the attempt to be at peace with our environment. There will live entertainment provided by Ottawa’s Grateful We’re Not Dead. This four member band is described as “a country party band with a ribald sense of humour and a social conscience” . The Royal Oak at Galilee has seen many things in its over 50,000 sunrises but never a group as this. This event is a fundraiser for Galilee Centre. It is being carried out in partnership with the Canadian Department of Peace. The price of entry is $40 per person (aged 12 and under $15). The entry fee includes trail support, the Commemorative Peace Scarf, a communal ‘100 Mile’ Meal, and entertainment by Grateful We’re Not Dead. SCHEDULE

Registration and Scarf Painting – 11 a.m. Blessing and Start – 1 p.m. Start of Entertainment – 3:30 p.m. Communal meal - 4 p.m. Overnight Accommodation available – contact Galilee Centre Advance registration is available at Galilee Centre or at events online.

Community - What is Peace? The dictionary suggests it as a state of tranquility or quiet, as freedom from civil disturbance, as freedom from disquieting thoughts or emotions, or as harmony in personal relations. On Saturday, Sept. 14, there will be a celebration of peace at Arnprior’s Galilee Retreat Centre with the inaugural Peace Walk. While it is called a walk, one can walk, pole walk, run, or cycle through the Gillies Grove and onto the McNab Braeside Recreational Trail. The journey will be supported with water stations up to the United Church at Glasgow Station (24 kilometres return), but people can trek as little or as much as they wish. This is not a timed or chipped event. All participants will be given a Peace Scarf that they can keep as a memento of their walk , run, or cycle. This custom scarf, handmade by the Friends of Galilee, features a red dove of peace against a white background. Before the start of the walk, those who desire, will be able to custom decorate their scarf as well. As people cover the trail, in whatever way they see fit, for whatever distance they wish, it is hoped that they will reflect upon peace: Peace within themselves, Peace with their neighbors, Peace with the environment. People will do the walk in either reflective silence or in community with others. Upon the return to Galilee, there will be ample opportunity to get some water, freshen up, and get some

The Renfrew Fair left a lasting impression Lifestyle - Weeks had passed since the Renfrew Fair. But I couldn’t get the picture out of my mind. It haunted me when I lay in bed at night, and many times during the day. Had not Uncle Lou sent Mother money in an envelope with the sole purpose of taking us five children to the Renfrew Fair, there is a good chance we may not have gone that year. Mother said money was scarcer than hen’s teeth, and that year we may have to miss the fair. It would be the first time ever, and how Uncle Lou knew of our situation is beyond me. But he always seemed to be there with a helping hand when we needed it most. And so crisp bills came... not American, even though Uncle Lou lived in New York, but Canadian money simply sent in an envelope in the mail, with a note scrawled on a piece of note paper saying “enjoy the fair”. So we were going after all. The usual preparations took place. A big lunch packed in an 11 quart basket ... shards of ice from the ice house in a glass jar of iced tea ... sugar cookies, and a bowl of sliced cucumbers, radishes, and

Mary Cook’s Memories MARY COOK

green onions ... there was no such thing as plastic containers, or saran wrap back in the 1930s. A couple blankets to throw down on the grass, and we were all set. Mother had doled out Uncle Lou’s money to each of us to spend as we wished. Audrey said she was sure she had kept back a bill or two, and we kids would never see it. It would go right into the sugar bowl with Mother’s egg money! The three brothers vanished into the crowd at the fairgrounds almost before Father brought the old Model T to a stop. They were told not to spend their money on food ... there was plenty under the blanket on the grass! Mother would go to see the embroidery work and the baking, and Father would head for the livestock. My sister Audrey was saddled with looking after

me, although there was no danger of a youngster of my age wandering off alone in those days. I knew where the blanket was, and I would be perfectly safe to come and go as I pleased. Audrey said she would give me one half hour, and that was it. Then I was on my own. I told her I would like to just walk around … and wander in front of the big tents where the side-shows were, knowing perfectly well going inside was forbidden territory for me. But always out on the platform was a look of what a quarter would get you inside. I was fascinated at one stage where a little monkey sat on a chair eating a banana. I have no idea what was in the tent, but Audrey assured me it wasn’t suitable for the eyes of a six year old!

We wandered on, me holding tightly to Audrey’s hand, passing one tent after another, all looking very forbidding to me. And then we came to the last tent in the row. A man, who looked like had hadn’t seen bath water for a year, was honking through a horn affair inviting people in to see what he called “the oddities of mankind”. I had to ask Audrey what oddities meant, and she said just to look up on the stage. And there stood two little people. Their hair had been cut close to their heads, and they stood just a few feet tall. Their faces were wrinkled, and even at my young age, I saw such sadness and despair in their eyes as they scanned the crowd around the stage. They looked so frightened, and the man kept yelling out to the people in front, that for a quarter... “just twenty-five cents” he said, go into the tent and have a closer look. My heart went out to those two little people on the stage, in the blinding sun, and unbearable heat, and I wanted to climb up the steps and yank the horn out of the man’s hands, and go to the little people and put my arms

around them. I wanted to tell the people who were willing to part with a quarter, to turn away, look the other way. And I started to cry. And my eyes connected with one of the little people, and her face, I thought softened, and I smiled in her direction. But the man was already shooing them off the stage and into the tent where those who had paid could get a closer look. I asked my sister why people would pay to see such two pitiful people, and I told her I wanted to go to where our blanket was and sit for a spell and try to get the picture out of my mind. That year the rides didn’t seem as much fun, and the candy floss not as sweet. The picture stayed with me long after the Renfrew Fair was over. Like two lost souls, they were. And I when I went to bed at night after that day at the fair, when it came time for what Mother called our “silent prayers,” I remember the two little people, and I prayed that someone would rescue them from the man with the horn, and the hot tent, and the eyes of strangers.

RE-ESTABLISHING BUSINESS IN RENFREW: Mr. Allan Derry, after five years experience “on the road” for the Guiney Foundry Co. of Toronto, makers of heating and plumbing supplies, has come to the conclusion that the stability of home is preferable to the everchanging aspect of a traveller; and has decided also that no place that he knows shows indication of steadier growth than the town of Renfrew. Hence his decision to engage here, again in the plumbing and heating business; having this week undertaken a list of orders for installation of plumbing and heating systems here in town. In his recent line of business he has had opportunity to keep abreast of the latest advances in plumbing and heating installations and is prepared to give good service to those who want the greatest comfort in their houses. JUDGES AT ARNPRIOR FAIR: Arnprior was favored with fine weather for both days of its fair, Thursday and Friday last. The show of horses also was good and the attendance reasonable. During the year the directors have built a new horse and poultry shed, the big ones below, the cacklers above; and Mr. Donald Frood of Renfrew had the honour of doing the first judging of the first poultry show in our neighbour town. There were some good birds on show, but not a great deal of competition.

Community - A new team of dedicated mental health and addictions nurses will provide mental health and addiction supports and services to children and youth in eight district school boards across the Champlain region. Educators in Ontario rank mental health and substance abuse as a critical issue for school systems. With students going back to school, the Champlain Community Care Access Centre (CCAC) Mental Health and Addictions Nurses are ready to help them and their families by: • Meeting with students one-on-one in school or at home • Providing mental health and addictions education to students, families and school staff • Medication monitoring and support • Linking students to mental health and addictions services in the community • Connecting with

family doctors and schools. Back-to-school time can be a stressful adjustment period for youth and their families. Our focus is to connect with students early—as issues start to develop—to link them to the appropriate resources in their school or community,. says Ron Merkley, Registered Nurse, Champlain CCAC Mental Health and Addictions program. The program builds on the role CCACs currently play in connecting people with the care they need, based on comprehensive assessments and care planning, while supporting coordinated and integrated care delivery. “We look forward to working with our partners in the mental health field to support students. We know that 70 per cent of mental health issues begin during childhood or adolescence. Our specialized Mental Health and Addictions Nurses have the expertise to make a difference in young lives,” says Gilles

Lanteigne, CEO, Champlain CCAC. During back-to-school season, the Champlain CCAC is also raising awareness about mental health resources available to children and youth on its Champlain Healthline website. For more information about the Mental Health and Addictions Nursing program, follow the Champlain CCAC on Facebook and Twitter. BACKGROUNDER

Students sometimes face immense social and educational pressures both at home and at school. These pressures can result in mental health or addictions issues that may be difficult to manage on their own. Or, these stresses can be more difficult to manage because of a pre-existing mental health issue. The Champlain Community Care Access Centre (CCAC) has introduced a new program in collaboration with

school boards and community partners to support students with mental health and addictions issues to stay in school and succeed. SUPPORTING KIDS AND TEENS AT SCHOOL

Schools are at the forefront of dealing with mental health and addictions issues experienced by children and youth. We work with school boards to first identify those in need of care, and then provide supports for the schools attended by these students. The services offered by the nurses complement the programs already provided through schools and communitybased mental health and addictions organizations. How can Mental Health and Addictions Nurses help? We focus on the success of students with mental health or addictions issues, helping them to thrive at school, remain in school, or suc-

cessfully transition back to school after being in hospital. We work together with school boards, teachers and community-based organizations to support students and their families as they deal with mental health and addictions issues. This support might include: • Meeting with students one-on-one at home or at school • Providing mental health and addictions education to students and their families • Providing short-term therapy • Connecting with the family doctor and school • Helping students understand their medications • Assistance in transitioning back to school from a hospital or other health institution • Connecting students to mental health and addictions services in the community • Assisting students in coping with mental health and addictions is-

sues • Providing tools to stay in school, thrive in school, and manage the future with success WHO IS ELIGIBLE FOR THESE SERVICES?

Mental Health and Addictions Nursing is available to children and youth that may have mild to complex mental health and/or substance abuse issues. As well, this program supports students who are transitioning back to school

from the hospital or other care setting. Access to this program is available by referral, through local school boards, and anyone can make a referral to the CCAC.

Community - What To Do With The Kids will hold its first Leadership Program at the Renfrew Public Library on Saturday, Sept. 28. WTDWTK Self Esteem I is designed to give kids in the Ottawa Valley the skills they need to combat bullying but to grow into healthy and happy adults. Parents in the Ottawa Valley are encouraged to sign up their kids ages 13 to 16 for this day-long program. The cost is $50. WTDWTK programs are supported by the Renfrew Chamber of Commerce who recognizes the importance of having these types of programs in the Ottawa Valley. “What To Do With The Kids believes that bullying will never go away,” says a recent news release. “Bullying is not acceptable, especially in our schools but bullying

does not end with graduation. Bullies in school eventually become bosses, managers, supervisors, co-workers and sometimes husband and wives.” WTDWTK says its leadership program is “designed to give kids the skills they need to deal with bullying now. A kid with high self-esteem and confidence will develop into a confident and productive member of society which is important in surviving the pressures associated with bullying.” Registration is available at www. whattodowiththekids.com/leadership or contact Brian Presley at 613-2767739. The Sept. 28 program runs 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information about the Renfrew Public Library, contact Maggie Murdock at 613-432-8151 or email mmurdock@renfrew.library. on.ca.

In Memory of

In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone, For part of us went with you, the day God called you home. You left us peaceful memories, your love is still our guide, And though we cannot see you, you are always at our side. Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same, But as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.

Predeceased by father Lawrence and survived by his mother Sheila Rousselle of Prescott, Wife Kerry and daughter Savannah both of Kingston, brother Terry (Michelle) and niece Bryana Rousselle from Edmonton, Alberta.

If I could have a lifetime wish, A dream that would come true I’d pray to God with all my heart For yesterday and you. A thousand words can’t bring you back, I know because I’ve tried, And neither will a million tears, I know because I’ve cried. You left behind my broken heart And happy memories too I never wanted memories I only wanted you.

Love Always, Wife Rose and Daughters Brenda and Kelly

On the wings of an angel Our love will fly to you each night, God speed to you Poppa, Fly free now in flight. The day the angels came I felt a gentle breeze upon my face, My heart began to beat To a struggling painful pace. “The angels came down They took you away, You will become an angel now And this is where you will stay.” I felt you this morning As a new dawn broke through the sky, I saw your eyes radiate with peace As mine began to cry Just then I glanced over my shoulder And the smiling eyes I did see, With an angelic light so beautiful Shining upon me “I will always be here I heard this angel say; I will pick you up when you fall I will hold your hand each and everyday” “Just like when you were small The little innocent girl I knew, I will hold your hand each day Just as I did as you grew!” Your mighty wings expanded Poppa Your spirit ready to fly, Courage and peace embracing your heart As you soared with grace in the sky. Until the day, in heaven, we arrive. You’re in the hearts of all you touch. We still love you very much. In Memory and Honour of you Poppa Fly and be free….

Just when your life was brightest, Just when your years were best, You were called from this world of sorrow To a home of eternal rest. Her loving face we hope to see again, Though the days have passed away; Sleep on dear Shirley, and take your rest We miss you most who loved you best. Sad are the hearts of many, Yet brave as she’d want us to be, Consoled by the thought of meeting On the shore of eternity. The depths of sorrow we cannot tell, Of the loss of one we loved so well, And while she sleeps a peaceful sleep Her memory we shall always keep. A year has passed since that sad day The one we loved was called away; God took her home, it was his will, But in our hearts she liveth still.

With her extraordinary proficiency in languages, Betty finished high school in English and then headed to Toronto, landing a job with the RCMP as a translator. After a transfer to Ottawa, she met Ernie, then a captain in the Canadian Army. At the end of the war, they married, moved to Eganville and took over the Bimm family’s General Store.

Along with her numerous community and church volunteer activities, Betty applied her considerable artistic talents to painting.

After retirement, Betty and Ernie moved to Renfrew and enjoyed many years spending time with their grandchildren and socializing with new and old friends. They continued to revel in summers spent at Mink Lake and travelled the world. Betty’s final years were spent at both Quail Creek and Bonnechere Manor under the compassionate and professional care of devoted staff for which the family is truly grateful.

â&#x20AC;˘ The Ministry of Industry, Trade and Technology piloted the first Business Self-Help Offices in Ottawa and Kitchener in early 1986. Based on their success, measured primarily by client feedback and volume, as well as interest expressed by municipalities, the Eastern Ontario Small Business Network was developed in 1988. The Network included at that time 5 Business Self-Help Offices (Renfrew, Hawkesbury, Smiths Falls, Port Hope, Trenton) â&#x20AC;˘ The Eastern Ontario Network then served as a model to develop similar networks in South Western Ontario and Northern Ontario. By the beginning of 1993 the Ministry of Economic Development & Trade had partnership agreements with and Business Self-Help Offices in 33 municipalities across Ontario. *** Note name change of the Ministry. â&#x20AC;˘According to Audrey Green (Reeve â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Town of Renfrew and who was mayor at the time), negotiations commenced in the Town of Renfrew in 1987 through a grant proposal to the Ontario Government to open up a Self-Help Office in Renfrew. â&#x20AC;˘ On Jan. 9, 1988 the Small Business Self-Help Office opened at the offices of the Renfrew Industrial Commission, a temporary location until the Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s industrial training centre opened in the spring of 1988 in the former St Francis Xavier

School on Lochiel Street.

Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam to visit Hawkesbury Harley dealership Sept. 14 Theresa Fritz

theresa.fritz@metroland.com

Events â&#x20AC;&#x201C; It will be 50 shades of anarchy in Hawkesbury Sept. 14-15. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when Charlie Hunnam, star of the FX television show Sons of Anarchy and newly named to play Christian Grey in the movie adaptation of E.L. James 50 Shades of Grey, visits Goulet Motorsports Harley-Davidson in the eastern Ontario community. Hunnamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first time visit to the community follows sold-out visits from former Sons cast member Ryan Hurst (Opie) in March and current cast member Tommy Flannagan (Chibs) in June. Hunnam, 33, will be at Goulet Motorsports Sept. 14 from 5-10 p.m. for a meet and greet, autograph signing and dinner under a big tent outdoors. The cast visits to Hawkesbury are a partnership between Goulet Motorsports and Full Throttle Events. Full Throttle is a promotions company based in Lachute, Que. organizing exclusive meet and greet events with stars of the show. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was an idea that I had when I first met the cast (of Sons of Anarchy) in Texasâ&#x20AC;Śthey

were excited about it,â&#x20AC;? explained John Younkie of Full Throttle Events. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And then we expanded it nationally. We travel all over Canada.â&#x20AC;? Younkie, who buys his mortocycles from Goulet Motorports, said the partnership with his home dealership was a natural thing. From there, the VIP meet and greets expanded to other Harley dealerships across Canada. And the events attract patrons willing to pay anywhere from $125 to $250 for the chance to rub shoulders with their favourite television outlaws. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have nothing but great reaction to these events,â&#x20AC;? Younkie said. The events draw not only local residents, but also fans from Ottawa, Montreal and beyond. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are a huge draw. This time, we have people coming from New York, we have a couple coming from Alaska, a couple from Bostonâ&#x20AC;Śit is quite something.â&#x20AC;? As for Hunnam, Younkie says fans are in for a treat as the British-born actor is a real people person who loves doing these events. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He is a real down to earth kind of guy. He enjoys meeting the fans,â&#x20AC;? Younkie said. And while the Sept. 14 event is sold out, fans of the show need not despair. As a special add on, Hunnamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s castmates Flannagan and Mark Boone (Bobby) will join him Sept. 15 for a fall motorocycle ride. The ride cost $25 and will include a breakfast. Kickstands will go up at 11 a.m. for the scenic ride with the three actors rid-

After the ride, participants as well as the public are welcome back to Goulet Motorsports for lunch. The event will be licensed and music will be provided by Texarillo. Around 1 p.m. Hunnam and company will be available for photo sessions on a first come, first served basis. Younkie said this will mark the first time the three Sons stars are in Canada at the same time. The sixth season of Sons of Anarchy begins Sept. 10 with Hunnam reprising his role of Jax Teller, president of the outlaw motorcycle

Scream for ice cream Getting some on yourself comes with the territory when it’s kids enjoying an ice cream cone, especially when that flavour is chocolate. Madilyn Doidge and her younger brother Anthony weren’t about to let mom bypass the Tracey’s Dairy booth in the back of the armouries.

Kelly continues to dominate Renfrew Fair derby Peter Clark peter.clark@metroland.com

Sports - Shawn Kelly proved once again that he is still the top driver at the Renfrew Fair Demolition Derby. At the wheel of car No. 01, the Burnstown driver captured the eight-cylinder pro modified title and $500 cash in the 19th annual Sept. 4 event to run his winning streak to five years. Backed by sponsors B.R. Fulton Construction, Linda Ledbetter and Benson Auto, and with pitman and son Cody Leskie in his corner, Kelly also made it five derby wins in six starts this year. He won Arnprior, Hog Wild, Stirling, and a figure-eight derby in Eganville. In Tweed, Kelly got his so hard, it broke off the steering wheel. He still was able to finish third. Kelly has one derby remaining in 2013. He’ll be travelling to Lindsay for a huge derby Oct. 26. Operated by Impact Motorsports, this event had 224 cars last year, and Kelly expects 40 to 60 cars in his modified class this year. “I’m looking forward to it,” Kelly said. “They actually call Lindsay Derby Town.” There is also a good amount of prize money, depending on the number of cars entered. Kelly noted that this past week will be his final eight-

cylinder run at a Renfrew Fair. “This was my drive-for-five,” Kelly said. However, he is leaning toward a six-cylinder car for next year. “We’re not done, that’s for sure. Kelly’s biggest disappointment was that more drivers didn’t challenge him. He was looking forward to the challenge of all other eightcylinder cars in the final. Only three cars were in the field, Brian Cunningham of Horton and Almonte’s Keith Lowry being the others. Five other eight-cylinder car drivers competed in a pro stock final. Renfrew’s Wes Vanderploeg piloted car No. 4 to the title and $500. The two features were the lone events in both eight-cylinder challenges. LESKIE, WRIGHT WIN

Four heats led up to the four-cylinder feature. When only one car was left standing, it was No. 439 with Tanner Leskie of Horton Township at the controls. Leskie earned $600 plus the championship trophy. The biggest winner of the night financially was Adam Wright. The Renfrew driver earned a cool $1,000 for claiming the six-cylinder crown.

Gordon Cup playoff: Pembroke prevails against Arnprior Peter Clark peter.clark@metroland.com

SECOND PLAYOFF

It’s been five years since the Renfrew lads last tasted victory in a tournament they once owned. Renfrew ran a streak to nine Gordon Cup titles in 11 years with their last win on home soil during the town’s 150th anniversary celebrations in 2008. Since then, losing in a playoff to host Pembroke in 2009 is as close as they’ve come. This year, a playoff was needed to determine the champion for just the second time. Again Pembroke found the winning formula on the 37th hole to end the Arnprior Golf Club’s threeyear Gordon Cup winning streak. The two clubs tied with scores of 1,866 through regulation, but only after Arnprior had made a huge comeback from 15-strokes down starting play in day two. Pembroke’s daily totals were 913-953 and Arnprior’s 928-938. The playoff consisted of a two-on-two sudden-death

FIVE-UNDER FOR MCGEE

McGee led Arnprior and the entire field with an impressive five-under par 137 after rounds of 70 and 67. Former Renfrew club champion Dwight Reinhart (69-75) and Stephen Dowd (74-70), both past members of Renfrew Gordon Cup teams, registered 144 for Arnprior. Sean Henson (80-77157) and Toban Verdun (75-82) 157 led the Deep River Golf Club, while Craig Lynch – another exRenfrew Gordon Cup team member – paced Mississippi with rounds of 78-73 for a 151. Kip Mulvihill and Tim O’Connor were one and three shots respectively behind Warren on the Renfrew leader board. Renfrew results were Rob Warren 80-78-158, Kip Mulvihill 79-80-159, Tim O’Connor 78-83-161,

JAKE WINFREY/CULLMAN TIMES

Brown roars to victory Saturday October 5, 2013

Renfrew Collegiate Institute grad Cooper Brown is making his mark with the Wallace State Community College Lions in Hanceville, Ala., early in the school season. The 2012 Renfrew Golf Club champ shared the opening-round lead of five-under par 67 with two others at the 17th Cullman County Golf Championship Aug. 24. When asked what it would take on day two to win the 36-hole event, Brown suggested “another 67.” That’s exactly what he shot to pull away from the other first round co-leaders. Brown’s 134 was good for a four-stroke victory over his nearest competitor. Cullman Golf Course director and pro Ches Harris, left, presents the championship hardware to Brown. Steve Mulvihill 78-85-163, Tim Lemoyre 81-84-165, Chris Bradley 83-85168, Paul Wren 80-91-171, Tanner Desilets 79-99-178, Dustin Zohr 8791-178, Rick Smith 85-94-179, Jamey Larone 91-88-179, Brian Hewitt 8996-185, Rick Desilets 96-92-188, Jamie Clouthier 95-96-191. Smith teed up it for his 38th Gordon Cup while Desilets made the grade for the 30th time. This year’s tie was actually the third deadlock in Gordon Cup history, but only the second playoff. Back in the early 1970s, Arnprior and Pembroke tied, said Cup custodian Glenn Buder of Arnprior. The championship was awarded to Arnprior that year on the basis of a mathematical formula to break the tie. The Gordon Cup began when J.P. Gordon of Renfrew donated a prestigious piece of hardware named in his honour for Ottawa Valley golf supremacy in 1930. That came one year after the Renfrew Golf Club was established. The Arnprior Golf Club will host the 2014 Gordon Cup.

Sports - The Gordon Cup golf tournament was played for the 84th time in Pembroke on Saturday and Sunday of Labour Day Weekend. With 43 appearances, Renfrew’s Rob Warren has played in over half them. Warren fired rounds of 80 and 78 for a 158 total to lead all Renfrew Golf Club competitors.

Swansburg and McGee parred, while Mulvihill suffered a bogie five. That left it up to Hermitte, who drained a putt of about six feet to save par and earn Pembroke the championship. The Mississippi Golf Club finished third in 989992 for 1,981, just two shots better than Deep River’s 989-994 for 1,983. Renfrew carded 990-1,047 for 2,037.

Cobden Terry Fox Run Sunday Continued from page 42

But participants are welcome to take part until 3 p.m. There’s no entry fee and no minimum pledge. As the iconic Terry Fox once said, “If you have given a dollar, you are part of the Marathon of Hope.” Fox ran the marathon with an artificial leg for 143 days, until he was forced to stop in September 1980 because of cancer-related issues. Fox died on June 28, 1981, but his Marathon of Hope was a catalyst for the Terry Fox Run that has become

a world-wide fundraising phenomenon for cancer research. Communities hosting Terry Fox runs this weekend include Barry’s Bay, Constance Bay, Arnprior, Pembroke, Quadeville and Renfrew. About 100 people typically take part in the Cobden Terry Fox Run. For more details about Cobden’s event, contact Bonnie Helferty at 613-646-2212.

This went on for the rest of the afternoon with dogs jumping higher and higher in two inch increments. Marie-Lise Laplante of Ottawa earned the EV Top Gun title with her mixed breed Ziggy. Nightfall came and several of the campers were commenting on how quiet it was on the Ranch while star gazing by the campfire. SPEED RETRIEVE

The Speed Retrieve rounds got underway on Sunday and Christel Klocke’s black lab Jonker of Brockville came out on top with the fastest

time. Speed Retrieve is a sport where the dog has to stay in a marked zone half way down the length of dock until they get the signal to go. Once the signal goes the dog takes and leaps into the pool. The dog then has to swim the entire length of the pool as fast as possible and retrieve a buoy from an arm suspended at the other end. The best of the best from all weekend moved into the finals on Sunday afternoon. Christel Klocke and Jonker battled out the Big Air Pro Series with Mary Spurrell of Avalon Ranch and Rev into the late afternoon. The excitement built as these two teams kept out-doing each other jump after jump, before Christel’s Lab took the Big Air win. Marie-Lise Laplante’s Ziggy was the weekend’s top dog, finishing up the Extreme Vertical Top Gun Series in first place, as well as first in the Iron Dog Titian Series. Iron Dog is a combination of all three sports. Both Marie-Lise Laplante and Christel Klocke, who were at the Worlds Dockdogs event last fall, train at Avalon Ranch.

Wanted: curlers both old and new Andy Sklepowicz Behind the Glass

Sports - One of the problems of mentioning during a family gathering that I needed to get in better shape for this curling season, is that they believed me. And in most families that would not be a problem. But no, not mine. Somehow I managed to raise four kids that are all fitness gurus. In fact, two are personal trainers with one married to another trainer, a third studied Ayurveda, which includes extensive yoga and natural healing, and the fourth runs more in a week than I have in a lifetime. Add to that a wife who now realizes my life insurance ends at 65 and pretty soon I will be worth more alive than dead.

The result was a customized fitness program all prepared and in effect before we even opened the CabMerlot. And now a week in, I can feel that inner tiger awakening; or is it last night’s high potency guacamole? FRIDAY REGISTRATION

Oh, and as far as curling news, remember that Friday, Sept. 13 will be a registration and social night from 7 to 9 p.m. Please come out and find out about curling and our club if you are new to the sport or you have forgotten which foot the slider goes on. Otherwise if already a curler, please register now as it makes everyone’s life easier and teams and leagues will roll out smoothly. Also bring a friend

or three and help introduce them to a great lifelong pastime. To diminish concerns from some of you with chronic back, knee and other problems, as well as balance issues on the ice, stick curling is present in all leagues, with sticks available and instruction given at all clinics. If you are still not sure about stick or slide curling, try it out at the opening clinics at no charge and then decide. A learn-to-curl six-week program is also available to try the sport, learn the basics and be supported by able instructors. Finally the Sweep & Putt Fun Spiel is making a comeback Saturday, Oct 5. It includes an affordable lunch, great dinner, prizes and use of the wonderful Renfrew Golf Club facilities.

Junior Timberwolves lose to Pontiacs, split with Thunder Peter Clark peter.clark@metroland.com

Sports - The Renfrew Timberwolves had a win, a loss, and an overtime defeat in three preseason games as they tuned up for the start of the 2013-14 Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League campaign. The Pontiac Juniors outscored the Wolves 65 at the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre Sept. 3. The Wolves then split with the Almonte Thunder. Renfrew won 5-2 in Almonte Saturday night, but lost 4-3 in a shootout at home Sunday. PONTIACS 6, WOLVES 5

The Wolves got their ďŹ rst taste of pre-season hockey Sept. 3. One thing Renfrew fans can take heart from, the team iced by coach Kip Mulvihill and assistants Mike Bredlaw and Danby Suckow never quit, right down to the last second. The Wolves trailed by every conceivable two-goal margin from 2-0 on up, and continually fought back to pull to within one, but never could draw even. Renfrew actually scored its last goal with one second remaining, moments after Shawville had taken a 6-4 lead. Isaac Anderson notched two Renfrew markers. Singles came from Patrick Dick, Nyck Paquette and Alex McEwen. Matt Gagne went the distance between the pipes. Each team had 11 penalties. A spirited scrap in the second period left the Wolves Jake White and Shawvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dylan McNamara with early exits. ALMONTE 4, WOLVES 3 (SO)

Garrett McMullin had a big night for Almonte. McMullin struck for a pair of second-period markers to pull his team back from a 2-0 deďŹ cit, and then notched the only goal in a shootout to give his team the victory. Luke Martin added a third-period tally for the visitors. Patrick Dick, Brady Durocher and Luke Lapierre counted for the Wolves. Goaltender Matt Gagne faced 23 shots.

Wolves general manager Brent Sylvester has been busy retooling the defending Valley Division champions for another run. He has re-acquired Matt Johnson from Port Perry of the Central Ontario Hockey League for future considerations. The Wolves have also picked up Patrick Dick from Almonte and Teddy Suckow from Arnprior. Casey Donor, who was dealt to the Packers,has since moved on to the Ottawa Jr. Canadians. The Wolves also received Ben Wade from the Perth Blue Wings, and, in turn, shipped Wade to the Stittsville Royals in return for defenceman Brandon Lee. This is Wadeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ fth team in less than a season and a half. When he suits up for Stittsville in a regular- season game, he will have actually played for four of them. Regular-season play for the Wolves starts Friday night when they travel to Perth for a 7:45 p.m. contest. On Saturday, the Wolves take on the Ottawa West Golden Knights in a designated home game as part of a Metro/Valley showcase at the Nick Smith Centre in Arnprior.

Author Barry Risk be no secondary check. This means that if a terrorist passes the border into the United States, there will be nothing to prevent him from entering Canada, said Risk. Despite his disagreements with certain politics, he is a fervent believer in the good that custom agents do. They make sure that the borders are safe from unsavory characters and prevent dangerous and illegal imports and exports from crossing that line. His wife Ingrid pushed him into writing the book, putting his stories down for everybody to enjoy. It took a total of two years to ďŹ nish writing his novel. He published his book with General Store Publishing House Inc. out of Renfrew. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They plugged me into a professional editor,â&#x20AC;? said Risk. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a real pleasure working with her. What was nice was that she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have much experience with borders and it tweaked all sorts of questions

Arts - Part biography, part history book, The Thinner Blue Line by Barry Risk is a sneak peak into the realities of the life of custom ofďŹ cers and the border they protect. Liberally peppered with personal anecdotes, court cases and images, Risk takes the reader into a literary ride in a typically unknown world. The ďŹ rst time author wrote the book out of his Arnprior home as a catharsis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Originally I started writing because after 35 years I was frustrated and I needed something to remove the angst,â&#x20AC;? said Risk. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to retire angry. So it was more for my own (sake), and possibly my children some day.â&#x20AC;? Sometimes people view custom agents in a bad light, complaining about the wait and forget about the pressures ofďŹ cers are under, said Risk. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Take Windsor for instance,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Four thousand 18-wheelers a day cross that border, $1.5 billion worth of business a day.â&#x20AC;? Up to 120 million people cross the Canadian border every year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of people to process and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very difďŹ cult to reach in and grab the one person whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a criminal or smuggling.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The public doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the concept of size,â&#x20AC;? he added. When he ďŹ rst started working with the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), it was the type of place where people spent entire lifetimes, but now the turnover rate is extremely high. There are also some politics he disagrees with. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Harper government is moving to whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s known as combined border operations,â&#x20AC;? said Risk. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve travel to Europe, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll know that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of a thing which we familiarly call Fortress Europe.â&#x20AC;? Landing anywhere in Europe allows a traveler to go from country to country without a passport check. The outside of Europe acts as the perimeter border. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sounds great in theory, but in reality a border is only a strong as a weakest link,â&#x20AC;? said Risk. If this policy passes in Canada, North American borders will merge and there will

from her. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That became a nice project to do upon retirement,â&#x20AC;? he added. He wrote his book for three different audiences. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The ďŹ rst audience is the public,â&#x20AC;? said Risk. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The general public does not understand border protection the language we use, their legal rights, whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s involved. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a shame that its part of our function is being based on that ignorance.â&#x20AC;? He illuminates some of the more convoluted corners of border control using concrete exemples, deciphering the language and explaining the necessity of the ofďŹ cerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s diligence. He also explains why some people may take longer to cross the border than others. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Secondary (customs) isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a bad thing at all,â&#x20AC;? said Risk. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It means that some questions occurred in our triage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It means the person didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ďŹ t the norm,â&#x20AC;? he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you were going to Jamaica would you take a fur coat? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not to say that you are a bad person if you paid for cash the day before or you took a fur coat to Jamaica. It just means that it is a little odd.â&#x20AC;? The second audience he tries to target is new ofďŹ cers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unfortunately theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve lost the sense of the history of customs,â&#x20AC;? said Risk. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are the oldest enforcement arm of the Canadian government. We were formed before there was the RCMP. Our ďŹ rst custom port was built in 1719 before this country was built.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our history is much older then that,â&#x20AC;? he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our patron saint is St. Matthew. In the bible, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mentioned that Matthew was a custom ofďŹ cer.â&#x20AC;? The novel also contains several anecdotes that new ofďŹ cers could learn from to avoid some of the kerfufďŹ&#x201A;eâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s he faced as a young adult. The third audience is for historians, demonstrating how customs used to operate and highlighting all the efforts of the old ofďŹ cers. Being a customs ofďŹ cer wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t originally his plan. He originally wanted to be a teacher, but when that fell through he joined the federal government.

Briscoe on the mend after second surgery News - Admaston-Bromley Mayor RayeAnne Briscoe has begun rehabilitation at the Campus of the Ottawa Hospital after undergoing hip replacement surgery Aug. 23. She was up and moving the day after surgery, but because of complications, a second surgery was required Aug. 30. Together with her case worker, they hope to have her transferred to Renfrew Victoria Hospital where Briscoe can continue her therapy and

recovery. It may be six weeks before her new hip can bear weight. The mayor said she misses everyone and thanks those folks, including staff, ratepayers and council, for their support. Mayor Briscoe especially thanks Deputy Mayor Dirk Rook for the calls and extra time. Briscoe estimates she will be away from work for two months.

Expanded storage for Eganville seniors HOSPICE RENFREW

Sportsman Club contributes A donation of $ 2,000.00 was presented to Hospice Renfrew from the Eganville District Sportsman Club. The money was raised by selling raffle tickets at the 19th Annual Gun Shown held at the Eganville Arena in August. From left, Hospice Renfrew’s executive director Diane Caughey and administrative assistant Helen McGregor accept the cheque from Sportsman Club member David Welk and Joan Welk, personal support worker (PSW) at Hospice Renfrew and also member of the Sportsman Club.

A federal New Horizons grant has made possible this expanded storage facility for the Eganville and District Seniors. From left are president Irene Churchill, administrator Shelley McLeod, MP Cheryl Gallant, vice-president Ken Caldwell and secretary Tony Contant. The $20,843 grant will enable Eganville seniors to enjoy more sports activities such as Nordic walking, showshoeing, and cycling because they will have a place to keep the equipment. From Tai Chi, exercise class, euchre and shuffleboard are a few of many activities already held at the seniors centre. “The programs are inclusive to all area seniors. The Eganville and District Seniors endeavour to assist seniors in the area with a positive approach to good health and well-being,” said Gallant. “I encourage the entire community to support the events organized by this organization. The members make life healthier and brighter for seniors, who would otherwise be left out.”

After her mother slipped while getting into the bath last year, Mary began losing sleep worrying how her mom, Anne, was managing on her own. While her mom was in the hospital recovering, Mary found a closet full of stained clothing and a nearly empty fridge, both evidence of how hard it was for her mom to get around independently, even before the accident. Broaching the subject of retirement living, Mary pointed out the beneďŹ ts of knowing that someone would always be nearby and that additional care was available, something her mom now required for safe bathing and dressing.

RENFREW ROTARY CLUB’

The reins of the Renfrew Rotary Club were recently passed from Kathy Lofthouse to incoming president Doug Ryan.

Renfrew Rotary Club busy with many initiatives Dorothy Garlough Renfrew Rotary Club

Community - As a new member of Rotary International, I thought that I knew everything there was to know about Rotary. There is always the float in the Christmas parade, the delicious lobster and steak dinner in the spring and the annual Rotary Music Festival. I also knew Rotary organizes Meals on Wheels through the hospital, hosts exchange students regularly and is famous for its Bacon on a Bun at the Renfrew Fair. I was getting involved in an outstanding service club. Little did I know! I only touched the tip of the iceberg of how Rotary gives to our community. At a recent changeover meeting of the executive, I learned that I knew precious little about all the activities our Rotary club is involved in. For example, last year Rotary raised $14,000 locally for the Rotary Hall at the Bonnechere Manor, a gorgeous meeting room for all of the Bonnechere Manon community. How exciting it must have been for the club to have celebrated its 90th anniversary there in October and then to host a vocational seminar, open Minds Open Doors in November! At this pivotal meeting, I discovered that Rotary’s arms are long and have great reach. It is also involved in the Sunshine Coach, Renfrew County Senior Games, Renfrew County Science and Tech fair and the Shelter Box. But, apparently Rotary’s initiatives are even broader, extending beyond our borders. Our local club co-ordinated a matching grant in partnership with the North Renfrew, Kingston, Pembroke, and the Ogdensburg clubs to provide 400 water filters and 400 eco stoves to residents of San jose Villaneuva, El Salvador. Another point, of which I am proud to be a new member, is Rotary’s support of students. It recognizes that we need to invest in the next generation. This year, Rotary has sponsored students to the Adventures in Citizenship, Adventures in

IAN CLELLAND PHOTOS

Among the Renfrew Rotary Club’s many youth initiatives, to name a few, are Victory Farm Therapeutic Riding Centre, Do it For Daron, the Calabogie Ski bus program and Art in the Park. Environment and Adventures in Technology programs. The club also funds scholarships to both high schools in Renfrew, which include the Herb Rusheleau, K&C Briscoe; V. Forrest. Russ Wilkins and the Claude Thibeault, Scholarships. OTHER YOUTH INITIATIVES

Other youth initiatives include support for Victory Farm Therapeutic Riding Centre, Do it For Daron, Calabogie Ski bus program and Art in the Park. I find it impressive the members of Rotary donate time, energy and money to the kids. But not only do adults get involved in Rotary, the kids do too. Our local Interact club at RCI (young Rotarians) are active in fundraising through art auctions, bake sales, and buy outs. Amazingly, the students raised enough money to build a well in Kenya, a well as support their local projects. Other youth initiatives included a Youth Mental Health Seminar in conjunction with the Royal Ottawa Hospital. In addition, Rotary supports the Youth Crisis Support Centre in both Pembroke and in Renfrew. As it turned out, I had a lot to learn about our Renfrew Rotary Club. The scope of good that it does in our community was enlightening to me. Rotary touches us all. Thank you to all the members who so generously offer their service and I now know that I had better roll up my sleeves!

Another unwanted weed in Renfrew County Giant ragweed found on Calabogie Road property Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

News - Wild parsnip is growing at an alarming rate in Renfrew County, but other weeds are also rearing their unwanted faces this year. Dog-strangling vine and garlic mustard are more recent sightings of invasive species, while Calabogie Road residents Rose Ann and Boyd MacLaren last month reported the growth of another huge plant in front of their gazebo. The plant, which grew about 11 feet high, turned out to be a native, noninvasive species called giant ragweed. According to the MacLarens’ searches on the Internet, the plant can grow to 20 feet and is impervious to farmers’ corn-cutters. Renfrew County weed inspector and forestry manager Jeff Muzzi visited the MacLarens in McNab-Braeside Township to see the plant. “It’s the first one I’ve seen,” said Muzzi, but he says giant ragweed is already on the checklist as having been in Renfrew County a while. The MacLarens eventually cut down the plant with an axe, dug up the roots, and left the plant, which hadn’t yet seeded, to die in the sun. “If you see it, get rid of it,” said Mrs. MacLaren. The couple suspects the plant came from sunflower seeds bought at an Ottawa business. Having young grandchildren, they also wanted to ensure the plant didn’t cause symptoms attributed to giant hogweed, namely temporary blindness and bad skin

Ragweed, like giant ragweed, does cause hay fever. “Ragweed is bad this year,” said Muzzi, noting that anyone who finds giant ragweed on their property should follow the MacLar-

ens’ example. “Ideally, bag it and let it roast in the sun, said Muzzi. The same plant is very common in southwestern Ontario, where Muzzi says it has become resistant to herbicides.

Symposium on Muskrat Lake water quality Oct. 5 in Cobden Water Program Manager with Environmental Defence. The symposium will be chaired by Brian Whitehead, director of planning with JP2G Consulting in Pembroke, and Doug Skeggs, former MNR issues and information officer in Pembroke. “Our objective in hosting this symposium is to raise public awareness about water quality on Muskrat Lake and to generate interest in the formation of a lake-improvement council that can begin to put a plan together to address these issues,” said Whitehead. The symposium will be at Cobden District Public School from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Organizers hope to attract a strong group of lake residents and cottagers, business leaders, representatives from the agricultural community, tourism operators, anglers and political leaders. The water quality issues have been several decades in the making, said Skeggs.

Women’s health the focus of new breast imaging suite Queensway Carleton opens one-stop diagnostics centre Nevil Hunt

nevil.hunt@metroland.com

News - Women’s health got a shot in the arm on Sept. 4 with the opening of the breast centre at the Queensway Carleton Hospital. The Shirley E. Greenberg breast imaging suite brings together multiple forms of testing in one place. The goal is to have patients – overwhelmingly women – get all the tests they need in one private and comfortable place and in as short a period as possible. It’s expected that the hospital will perform about 5,500 mammograms, 1,400 breast ultrasounds and 2,600 bone density exams in the new suite in 2013-14. With advances in technology, such as digital mammography, and the larger space in the suite, patients

can often move between ultrasound, mammography and bone density machines in a single visit, instead of having to make multiple trips for each service. If concerns are identified during testing, patients can be sent to see a surgeon within two weeks of their first visit to the breast imaging suite, said the hospital’s diagnostic imaging manager, Shawn O’Rourke. O’Rourke said the image quality delivered by the hospital’s equipment has improved over the years and techniques are less invasive. The added space of the Shirley E. Greenberg also means there’s room to add a second mammography machine at a later date, although that will take an investment of about $600,000. O’Rourke said that having enough space to provide all the breast suite’s services improves the outcomes for patients. “We’ve got everything that we need and ... we will buy new equipment as the community grows,” she said. A donation of $1 million from

Shirley E. Greenberg helped the QCH Foundation build the new imaging suite. The Greenberg family has provided volunteer and financial help to the hospital for many years, including funding for the Irving Greenberg Family Cancer Centre, which opened at the hospital in 2010. Irving was also the chair of the hospital’s firstever fundraising campaign. Hospital board chairwoman Clare Becton introduced Shirley to an audience at the opening of the breast suite. “Shirley’s support for women’s health in this city has been legendary,” Becton said. Shirley spoke briefly – drawing the biggest laugh of the day – before taking a tour of the breast suite and unveiling a sign. “I have a new hip,” she said, thanking the medical staff who performed the operation. “I’m only sorry the rest of me doesn’t match.” She wished the staff “a bright and ever-better future.”

Inaugural Red Hat Mall Crawl a resounding success Community - Eighty local ladies of the Red Hat Society strutted their stuff at the National Capital’s first Red Hat Mall Crawl Aug. 15 – an event meant to promote awareness of and membership in the Society. Carlingwood Shopping Centre was awash in red hat ladies. Much to the delight of the many seniors that frequent this mall, the Red Hat Ladies enriched their day with color, conversation and put smiles on many of their faces. The atmosphere was joyful as the mall filled with spirited, fun-loving women promoting the principles of the society – fun, fulfillment, friendship, freedom and fitness. The ladies, in hats of assorted sizes, some with feathers, some sparkling with faux-diamonds, some with veils, some with bows, some simple red baseball caps wandered through the mall taking advantage of special offerings, answering quiz sheets related to mall shops, bringing a smile to the faces of the uninitiated, and happily answering the many questions from seniors and curious onlookers. The ladies were unmistakably visible down each and every corridor as they buzzed around the mall like a hive of colorful, busy bees. They could be seen around every corner and inside all of the many stores, doing what they do best, shopping.

For this one spectacular day Carlingwood Shopping Centre became a sea of red and purple, much to the delight of all. At the end of the day, ladies deposited their quiz sheets and are awaiting the call that they have won any number of wonderful prizes. Not many outside the Society know that the official sport of the Red Hat Society is shopping. During the Mall Crawl,

above and beyond the call of duty by bringing in spectacular red hats, fascinators, shoe bling, parasols and assorted other treasures to lure the ladies. Another little known fact is that almost every Red Hat event involves food – Hatters were particularly pleased with the discount provided by the Carlingwood Restaurant and by Treats, who made special red and purple cookies for them. Jill Lepack, Queen of the Renfrew Red Hotters, thought

the day was “delightful” and “a really great time.” She and her sister was “excited to have spoken with so many nice people … to dress up in our finery and strut our stuff!” Sandra Dormer and Barbara Gowan, Ambassadors of the Red Hat Society and the ladies that spear-headed the event, were effusive in their gratitude to Frank Fenn and his staff at Carlingwood Shopping Centre. Sandra said that “without the incredible support and generos-

ity of the people at the shopping centre we would not have been anywhere near as successful. Carlingwood is like a Mecca to many seniors in our community and we were so pleased to bring a little colour to their day.” Even Ottawa’s mayor, Jim Watson, was in on the event. Though not able to attend, he sent special greetings, congratulating the Red Hat Society for “encouraging women 50-plus to celebrate their age and to participate in activities which promote

an active lifestyle and spreading good cheer to others.” While the official purpose of the Mall Crawl was to increase membership in the society, which it did, there is an unofficial rule within the Red Hat Society – Hatters only participate in an event if they will have fun. This event met both criteria with resounding success while putting a lot of smiles on manseniors’ faces. For more details, please visit www.redhatsociety.com.

Literary giant and son of former Renfrew Mercury publisher featured on new stamp Robertson Davies author of many acclaimed works of literature Canada Post

Lifestyle - Aug. 28, which would have been his 100th birthday, Canada Post issued a stamp honouring Robertson Davies, one of Canada’s most powerful literary voices. The stamp is available at post offices across Canada and online. Davies spent part of his childhood in Renfrew, when his father Rupert was publisher and editor of The Renfrew Mercury. With acclaimed works such as Fifth Business and The Cunning Man – the last novel he wrote before his death in 1995 – Davies earned a reputation as a master storyteller. He fascinated readers with stories that were infused with wonder, wit and myth. Multi-layered characters and unpredictable plot twists became his hallmarks, attracting loyal fans across Canada and beyond its borders. “Robertson Davies’ books remain popular even decades after they were published. It’s a true testament to his power to inspire readers through great stories that transcend the era in which they were written. It’s why we pay tribute to him today,” said Canada Post President and CEO, Deepak Chopra. Davies’ career spanned six decades and multiple genres. In 1940, he became the literary editor of Saturday Night magazine. Two years later, he became editor of the Pe-

terborough Examiner, and later, also publisher. He contributed to the launch of Canada’s Stratford Festival in 1953, and served on its board of governors. In 1963, Davies was the founding master of the University of Toronto’s Massey College, where students clamoured to hear him tell ghost stories each Christmas. His interest in drama stemmed from childhood, and kindled his pursuit of playwriting as an adult. But he achieved his greatest success with the 11 novels published over his life. His best known, Fifth Business, was on the Toronto Star bestseller list for 42 weeks. It was the first book in what would later become The Deptford Trilogy. The Manticore, Rebel Angels and What’s Bred in the Bone are among Davies’ other notable novels. Davies earned numerous awards and honours throughout his career, including the Governor General’s Literary Award (for The Manticore) and the Stephen Leacock Award for Humour (for Leaven of Malice). He was the first Canadian honorary member of the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters. The stamp measures 28 mm x 28 mm with simulated perforations. The domestic stamp is denominated at the 63-cent rate and is printed by Lowe-Martin on Tullis Russell paper using six-colour lithography. The stamp is pressure sensitive and the Official First Day Cover will be cancelled in Toronto. The stamp is available in booklets of 10.

Mary-Joan Hale Most Precious Blood Parish, Calabogie

Community - On Friday, Sept. 13 Most Precious Blood Roman Catholic Church in Calabogie will celebrate 100 years as a parish. Although the church itself opened its doors in 1896, it remained a Mission Church of St. Francis Xavier, Renfrew. Previous to this, folks had to go to Springtown by boat, buggy or on foot for Sunday Worship. Some climbed Mount St. Patrick to hear Mass there. Needless to say, having a resident priest, Father W.H. Dooner, in the village was a special blessing. There have been 15 pastors and their assistants down the years with Father Pat Blake here since 1994. The official celebration will take place at the 10:30 a.m. morning Mass on Sunday, Sept. 15. The congregation is pleased and happy that Bishop Michael Mulhall will be here to offer the Mass of Thanksgiving. There will be a reception in the gymnasium of St. Joseph School next door to the church following Mass. Father Pat Blake and the Parish Pastoral Council invite former parishioners to come back to share this special milestone in the parish history.

Trinity-St. Andrew’s United Church open house Sept. 15 Community - For the first time, Trinity-St. Andrew’s United Church is hosting an open house. It’ll be held Sunday, Sept. 15 from 3 to 5 p.m. “The open house is a celebration of community, for the community,” said Rev. Russell Wardell, minister at Trinity-St.

Andrew’s. There will be a bouncy castle and a barbecue on the lawn. The choir is planning a singalong for adults and children. There will also be displays of church projects and works in progress in the sanctuary. The United Church library has a large collection of books to

browse through. Visit the assembly room where the children’s church program Godly Play will be set up and running. Handouts on Godly Play and Messy Church will be available. Tour the church where you will find various displays of programs and events that the United

Church women sponsor, and join them in the chapel for tea, coffee and refreshments. Enjoy hamburgers, hot dogs, clowning and face painting, the bouncy castle, music in the church and music on the lawn. A member of the church choir will be bringing along her bagpipes.

“We look forward to meeting more of our neighbours, and to offering a warm welcome to all,” said Trinity-St. Andrew’s minister Rev. Susan Tough. “Our gift of hospitality is free. No charge. Come and join us.” Call 613-432-2285 for more information.
