150 RAGLAN STREET

Now in his fifth term, Bob Sweet is the popular and respected warden of Renfrew County. But there will be a new warden to open the 201213 term. Itʼs now a pretty safe bet the new warden will be Greater Madawaska Mayor Peter Emon, of Calabogie, who announced Sept. 26 that heʼll run for the position in the December election. He made the announcement at the Renfrew County council meeting, which was held in Arnpriorʼs Nick Smith Centre to help highlight the townʼs 150th-anniversary celebrations. Emon was interested in running for warden last year, but did not after conferring with Sweet and learning the

Petawawa mayor would pursue an unprecedented fifth term. Sweet later confirmed that he would not seek a sixth term Since the early 2000s, there has been no election for warden, since each time the sole candidate was acclaimed. Emon says he has “a pretty substantial endorsement” from his colleagues on county council. “I want to continue to attract conventions and business to the area,” said Emon, whoʼd like to see more new and younger residents coming to live in the county, whose seniors population is already older than the provincial average. “As such, we need to attract more people ages 30 to 50 to the area. I think that should be a focus, as well as the need to focus on the smaller busi-

nesses that we have. “A lot of folks are getting to retirement age, and I think we need to assist them in marketing or helping them find people to purchase their businesses, rather than having those businesses just disappear.” He also reiterated what Warden Sweet said last year, namely that the position of warden is more effectively handled when filled by the same person for at least two years. At the same time, he says experienced politicians such as Sweet, who has been in municipal politics for about 25 years, could step in and effectively conduct business as the warden for a single-year term. However, Sweet isnʼt looking to return for a sixth year. See WARDEN, Page 3

Lots of sidewalk for a great price Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

Renfrew is way under budget for new sidewalk construction on Hall Avenue and sidewalk replacement on Gillan Road. The townʼs 2012 capital budget had allotted $230,000 for the two projects. One tender was nearly $250,000, but the only other one, from Petawawa-based H&H Construction, was $140,314.29. At the Sept. 24 town council meeting, development and works director Mike Asselin expressed satisfaction with the under-budget figure. Staff acknowledged the pricing was very aggressive, and that deferring the work could result in a higher tender in the future.

The project was then revised, to include the Gillan Avenue sidewalk extension, and introduced into the 2012 budget. The Hall Avenue sidewalk extension is needed, says staff, because of increasing traffic on this section of road. As for the Gillan Road sidewalk, itʼs in poor condition. The new or replaced sidewalks will run down one side of Hall Avenue and Gillan Road. Hall Avenueʼs new sidewalk will cover about 320 metres. The sidewalk replacement on Gillan will run about 230 metres between Hall Avenue and Foxden Street. The work is scheduled to start and finish this fall.

Working together is theme of mayors’ breakfast lucy.hass@metroland.com

Co-operation. Collaboration. Call it what you will, but the ability to work together is more important than ever before. Working Together: Today and Tomorrow was the theme of the 2012 Mayorsʼ Breakfast Sept. 25. The annual event is a chance for mayors to talk about progress within their communities and encourage co-operation. The gathering, sponsored by the Renfrew and Area Chamber of Commerce, featured mayors Bill Ringrose of Renfrew, Raye-Anne Briscoe of Admaston-Bromley, Don Eady of Horton and Peter Emon of Greater Madawaska. Chamber president Rob Campbell said that while each municipality is its own economic power, “We are all from one community here.” DON EADY

In his address, Horton Mayor Don Eady praised township council and staff. “Weʼre so fortunate in Horton to have some good, experienced staff; people who do things right and are conscientious about how they do it,” Eady said. He also noted progress in the municipality. For example, Horton has secured $309,000 in government funding for major work on Pinnacle Road this fall. “We donʼt have a lot of the equipment but we have good personnel, we have some good knowledge and weʼve done a nice job of maintaining our roads for the last two years,” he said. Eady also noted improvements at the local landfill site. “Jamey (Larone) has taken our landfill site to a different level,” the mayor said, noting its size has almost doubled. He also referred to a trip to Simcoe County and the benefits he foresees from implementing some of the lessons learned there. “If we go the route weʼre thinking of going – there will be a cost involved – but it could take our landfill site up to a point where it would last 30 years,” he said. “And I think thatʼs being conservative.” Eady also endorsed the important work being done at

Renfrew County council. “A good share of our tax dollars go to the County of Renfrew,” he said. “And theyʼre spending a lot of money down in this area in the next 10 years.” Eady said staff in Pembroke have “a great depth of knowledge” and “these people are up there helping us.” He encouraged co-operation among local communities and noted the importance of fundraising. “Health care seems to be one of the issues that really pulls us together,” Eady added, “But what it takes to pull communities together is people. If you have the right people doing the right things our communities will stick together,” he said. He also encouraged efforts to preserve local heritage. In closing, he praised the Renfrew and Area Chamber of Commerce. “Itʼs been a great organization,” he said. RAYE-ANNE BRISCOE

Mayor Briscoe opened her address with the observation, “Admaston-Bromley is small.” In fact, its entire budget is $2.8 million and $10,000 is required to move taxes up or down one per cent. “If I think in steps, or work in steps, the chances of getting to the goal are really a whole heck of a lot better,” she said. She then walked her audience through a 12-step program to success, the first described as “absolutely fundamental to our future as a community.” That step is staffing, and the mayor used the occasion to recognize that clerk-treasurer Bev Briscoe is retiring after 37 years of service to the township. “The bottom line here is that weʼre filling a vacancy because we will never, ever replace her.” Mayor Briscoe also noted dissolution of the ward system and how all council candidates will run at large in the 2014 municipal election, a move she describes as “a very positive change.” One key issue on the Admaston-Bromley agenda is a review of long-protected land designated for agriculture. “There is a marketplace demand for residential growth in our community,” she said.

2 The Renfrew Mercury EMC - Thursday, October 4, 2012

“I think we can better define some of these tracts – theyʼre overzealous, theyʼre bigger than they should be.” “We will, I promise you, still continue to treasure this huge bunch of real top-of-theline agricultural land that we have.” Briscoe also repeated ongoing concern with the farm tax rebate and lack of compensation for Crown land. “There is not fairness in funding,” she said. “The equalization system is anything but equal, it is the worst misnomer you could ever find in your lifetime.” On the bright side, she noted the breaking of ground for a new OPP station in spring 2013, and praised the Health Services Village which she described as “the pride and joy of my being.”

“There are a lot of good solid businesses here,” he said. “This is, in fact, our backbone.” PETER EMON

Greater Madawaska Mayor Peter Emon anchored the program and spoke, first and foremost, to the businesses. “We need you probably more than you need us,” said Emon, who described municipal government as “the most responsive and most responsible level of government.. “We have to work together on a regular basis,” Emon said of his fellow municipal politicians. “Itʼs a community.

Every member is in the same boat.” He also slammed any suggestion of adding party politics to the municipal system. “What a joke!,” he exclaimed. “I donʼt want that. I like what we have.” Emon also reiterated Mayor Briscoeʼs concern with the lack of compensation for Crown land. Greater Madawaska is approximately 200,000 acres and 60 per cent is Crown land. “The reality is we provide a lot of services to it and should be compensated for it,” he said. “We, as a collective, know we have to keep pushing the

envelope.” On the health front, Emon spoke about the Health Services Village and highlighted an upcoming fundraising campaign. The Week of Giving Oct. 9 to 20 will promote what the Health Services Village has done to date to recruit family physicians. “Itʼs a very valuable cooperative effort,” he said. Major sponsors of the mayorsʼ breakfast were Renfrew Chrysler; Worksafe Ontario/ Jim Miller, and Prime Valley Realty. This yearʼs event was hosted by the Rocky Mountain House Restaurant.

BILL RINGROSE

Renfrew Mayor Bill Ringrose identified the top priorities in Renfrew as a second ice pad and pool, economic development, finding additional sources of revenue and progress at the landfill site. He described the town as “a little bit slow getting from the talking to the doing” on waste management but assured action on that front. He said the pool and second ice pad issue is now at the parks and recreation committee for input, and a final council decision is expected in October or November. Ringrose said there are “major financial issues associated” with these capital projects and upper-tier governments will be approached to pitch in. “The town does not have the resources to put this in place,” he said. “You can only do so much through taxation,” he said, noting the need to generate funds through alternative sources such as solar energy. He said a lot of progress is being made at Renfrew Power Generation, of which the town is the only shareholder. Ringrose also noted positive changes at both 1 and 2 Innovation Drive and hinted at a November announcement of a new tenant. “Itʼs a huge change in that building. Itʼs quite dramatic,” he said of 1 Innovation Drive. He also had special praise for local merchants and business owners.

Drought-related concerns remain, say county councillors Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

Warden

Continued from front

Since the early 2000s, there has been no election for warden, since each time the sole candidate was acclaimed. Emon says he has “a pretty substantial endorsement” from his colleagues on county council. “I want to continue to attract conventions and business to the area,” said Emon, whoʼd like to see more new and younger residents coming to live in the county, whose seniors population is already older than the provincial average. “As such, we need to attract more people ages 30 to 50 to the area.

At the same time, he says experienced politicians such as Sweet, who has been in municipal politics for about 25 years, could step in and effectively conduct business as the warden for a single-year term. However, Sweet isnʼt looking to return for a sixth year. “He does a great job, and if

the Ottawa River, which is fed by local rivers and yet is still at 40 per cent of its lowest levels. The Bonnechere River is even worse off, at 20 per cent. A Level 2 drought remains in the area, but if it becomes Level 3, construction projects across the county, and other water-related activities, will grind to a standstill, say county officials. “Weʼre not out of the woods by a long, long way,” said Warden Bob Sweet. “Itʼs absolutely crucial that we continue to press this issue. If we go to a Level 3 situation … the first priority is potable water. The second priority is a need for water for livestock. After that itʼs all up to the MoE (Ministry of the Environment). Construction and cement work that requires water permits, if we get to that level … cease. “We have to keep our finger on the pulse of the situation,” added the warden. Meanwhile, Briscoe says citizens who are negatively affected by the drought should fill out the low-water questionnaires that will be forwarded to the Ministry of Natural Resources. The questionnaire is available at some municipalities, or visit www.admastonbromley.ca for a copy. Briscoe says farmers with crop insurance will be compensated for losses incurred during the drought. However, she says the questionnaire helps to document for the province the extent of damages for non-farmers in both ur-

he was going to stay this year, I wouldnʼt have offered my name,” said Emon. Asked what he might bring the county as warden, Emon replied, “I have a great deal of experience in a small municipality thatʼs fairly dynamic, with a series of challenges. “Iʼve chaired social services and Iʼve sat on all the committees of county council. I bring a fairly calm presence. I undertake a lot of research, so Iʼm fairly comfortable with my knowledge base. Plus I know enough to ask questions of the people who know the answers.” If elected warden, Emon says heʼll continue the countyʼs traditional push for more funding tied to the Crown land, and the need for municipal credits as a result of the farm tax credit and managed forests. “Those are provincial initiatives that cost municipalities money. Municipalities should not be paying for provincial policy,” stressed Emon, who started as a municipal councillor in the former Township of Bagot and Blythfield in 1988. He became head of council (then reeve) of Greater Madawaska in 2006. The 52-year-old has been a lifelong resident of Greater Madawaska, except for the five years he spent studying for his bachelorʼs degree in social work at the University of Windsor. In addition to his responsibilities as mayor, Emon works part-time as a crisis worker with the Pembroke Regional Hospitalʼs Community Mental Health division.

“Iʼm very, very pleased that he has announced that heʼs going to run,” said Renfrew reeve and county councillor Audrey Green. “He has my full support. Heʼll make an excellent warden. He has a lot of experience and he adds a human touch to the issues.” Warden Sweet said heʼll be another supporter of Emonʼs bid to be the countyʼs next warden. “I think itʼs nice to see it move around a little bit,” said Sweet. “Iʼm pleased for him, and I hope heʼs successful.” In not pursuing a sixth term, Sweet said, “Itʼs a big job. I think itʼs fair to say Iʼve started things Iʼve wanted to do in the community. And itʼs important to hand it over for some better or fresh ideas, or a different direction,” said Sweet, who expects to continue his involvement with the CP Rail initiative, so the county develops something positive out of the abandoned railway corridor. Sweet, 69, says having a new warden will allow him to spend more time with his wife and four grandchildren, and to focus, as mayor, on special projects in his own community. Those include the new school and Petawawaʼs upcoming 150th-anniversary celebrations. Sweet has been warden in 2004, 2005, 2006, 2011 and 2012. Between 2006 and 2011, the warden was Janice Visneskie of Killaloe, Hagarty & Richards for 2007 and 2008 and Donald Rathwell of Whitewater Region for 2009 and 2010.

ban and rural municipalities. Meanwhile, Briscoe and

other county officials urge residents to continue to conserve

water when they can.

County residents urged to monitor water quality Following a meeting of the County of Renfrew/Ministry of Natural Resources Water Response Team, it is suggested residents who draw water from a well monitor both the quality and quantity of groundwater coming from the well. According to Water Response Team co-chair Alastair Baird, the extraordinarily dry summer may continue. “Groundwater levels have not yet begun to recharge despite recent rain. The groundwater levels across the county have actually been depleted by a one and a half year dry period of reduced rainfall and

snow, and the drought has brought our groundwater supplies, even our deeper aquifers, to seriously low levels. Residents continue to experience water shortages in their wells and the reports of wells going dry are increasing in the past four weeks, as a result of the continuing decline in our groundwater levels. Even deep drilled wells are experiencing water shortages,” Baird said. “If you have a dug well where you can safely and easily measure the level, do so and record it and check weekly to determine if your well is recharging or if you are at

risk of losing your water supply. Even if you have a drilled well, the deep aquifers are also low and they take even longer to recharge. To measure levels in a drilled well consult a licensed well drilling contractor. Do not risk blocking your well with a homemade device, potentially damaging your equipment and complicating any required deeper drilling. Have a water quality test performed to ensure your groundwater is safe for human consumption.” Sample bottles are available at the health unit office, and can be dropped off at the same location.

If Renfrew County residents think water levels are returning to normal, think again. So said Admaston-Bromley Mayor Raye-Anne Briscoe while waving a caution flag during the Sept. 26 session of county council. The session was held in Arnpriorʼs Nick Smith Centre, to acknowledge the townʼs 150th-anniversary celebrations this year. But Briscoe said thereʼs little reason to celebrate more recent rainfall, following a virtual rain-free summer. Briscoe pointed out that even the most recent rain, Sept. 18, was just six millimetres on the Briscoe farmʼs water gauge, or three-tenths of an inch of water. Furthermore, Briscoe and McNab-Braeside Mayor Mary Campbell said sparse levels of snow in the winter of 201213 will be further cause for concern, since water levels on the Ottawa River, Bonnechere River and other local waterways remain well below normal “We get 80 per cent of our groundwater from snow melt,” Briscoe told county council, after hearing predictions of a sparse snowfall this coming winter. “If we donʼt get snow melt … weʼll be in significant, significant distress.” Briscoe said her comments were triggered, in part, by an understated drought summary

in the Sept. 26 agendaʼs development and property committee report. That one-paragraph summary referred to how farmers continue to feel the effects of the drought, then said: “The federal government has declared portions of Ontario and Quebec as drought-stricken, and this brings into force a federal tax deferral program which enables livestock producers to sell their livestock and defer paying the income tax on the receipts of such sales, which are being made under drought duress.” Unfortunately, said Briscoe, itʼs easy to make it a rural or agricultural issue, but itʼs very much an urban issue, too. Any announcement that the county has jumped to a Level 3 drought would have a catastrophic impact on such industries as construction and ski hills, since they wouldnʼt be guaranteed water for their operations, she said. The water levels in the area are a big concern because itʼs not just farmers, but many non-farmers with wells, who are feeling the pinch, said North Algona Wilberforce Mayor Harold Weckworth. Briscoe said more than a dozen residents in AdmastonBromley are having new wells drilled. She estimates the number across the county at 60 or more. “We need to understand that thereʼs a lack of recharge in our water systems,” said Briscoe, citing the example of

MPPs spearhead opposition to trades college activity steve.newman@metroland.com

0920.R0011631425

The philosophy of the new Ontario College of Trades, and its membership fees, will play havoc with the job market. That was the word during a skilled-trades roundtable at the Renfrew Royal Canadian Legion last Friday. The event was hosted by Progressive Conservative MPPs John Yakabuski of Renfrew-Nippissing-Pembroke and Garfield Dunlop, the partyʼs critic for skilled trades and apprenticeship reform, who represents the riding of Simcoe North. Helping to answer questions and express their opposition to the newly-formed Ontario College of Trades were Walter Pamic of Power-Tek Electrical Services in Stittsville and Eric Glahs of Lorneʼs Electric (Arnprior) who is also past chairman of the Ontario Electrical League. Glahs said he hoped for a turnout of about 100 tradespeople. Total attendance, including members of the media, was close to 40. The bill, which was passed in 2009, is scheduled to take effect in January 2013, but Yakabuski says itʼs still not too late to voice opposition and convince the government that the bill is not good for the Ontario job market. The regulations revising trades qualifications and the establishment of the Ontario College of Trades are found in Bill 183. The bill has been enacted as Chapter 22 of the Statutes of Ontario, 2009. The bill was passed in October 2009. If elected to power in 2015, Dunlop and Yakabuski said the Conservatives would kill the College of Trades. Both say the proposed regulations will cost contractors more money

and be passed on, in most instances, to the customer. “Nobody knows anything about it (the college),” said Yakabuski, “yet it is going to have huge implications on everybody who has a trade, on everybody who owns a small business that employs tradespeople, and everybody who is an apprentice or planning to get into the trade through the apprenticeship program.” In a period of skilled-trades shortages in this province, Pamic, Glahs and the two MPPs said their issues of concern include compulsory certification (for trades that are now considered voluntary) and increased fees for all compulsory trades. Most trades are currently classified as voluntary. Voluntary trades include drywallers, hair dressers, bartenders, barbers, carpenters, bicycle repairmen and painters. Trades that are compulsory include plumbers, crane operators, refrigeration and air conditioning specialists, sheet metal workers, and steam fitters. But the number of compulsory trades could jump exponentially, said the two MPPs. The accusation is unfounded, said Ron Johnson, chair of the College of Trades board of governors, when contacted by The Mercury. In fact, he said any particular trade would have to request a review by the college before any change from voluntary to compulsory. Regulations regarding apprentice-to-journeymen ratio in Ontario companies arenʼt likely to improve under the new college of trades, either, suggested Yakabuski. “Thereʼs a shortage of skilled trades in this province, and itʼs getting worse because the age of our tradespeople is

for additional certification. “You donʼt need any more oversight; you donʼt need any college of trades … they wonʼt train anybody at the college of trades,” said Dunlop. “Itʼs a huge bureaucracy, with already 50 people working there.” Another issue of concern is the apprenticeship system at a time when Ontarioʼs ratio of permitted apprentices to journeymen per business are lower than they are in western Canada. MPP Dunlop estimated this is the 70th meeting he has attended over the last year and a half to warn about the negative ramifications of the bill. Dunlop has continuously lobbied for reforms to the skilled trades system, but he says this doesnʼt include the kind of reforms proposed under the umbrella of the College of Trades. In fact, he calls the new college a “huge boondoggle” and says the college and the fees should be scrapped. Efforts need to be made to remove barriers in the skilledtrades system and to help create more jobs, said Yakabuski, stressing that jobs are definitely not being promoted by (more than) tripling the cost of fees for skilled trades and creating certification that were previously not required for other trades. Glahs said “weʼre are concerned with the College of Tradesʼ new membership fees, and feel there will be no benefits that will come from collecting these fees.” Without the fees there wouldnʼt be a college, except for the governmentʼs $12- or $13-million in startup fees, said Johnson.

getting up there,” said Yakabuski. “Thereʼs a lot of people working in the trades who would like to get out of it (and retire) but they have nobody out there qualified to take their place, and one of the reasons is they canʼt get enough apprentices through the system.” The College of Trades and its regulations are not going to keep more young tradespeople in the province to learn their trades, indicated Yakabuski. Johnson deflects that criticism, noting that the College of Trades has recently reviewed a few journeymen-toapprenticeships ratios. Two remained unchanged, while the ratio for the voluntary trade of resilient floorers was changed, said Johnson. At present, Yakabuski says Ontario companies can hire fewer apprentices per journeymen, compared to much better ratios in western Canadian provinces. For electrical journeymen, for example, the Ontario ratio is basically three journeymen per one apprentice, whereas in western Canadian provinces itʼs 1:1, 1:2 or no restrictions, as in the case of British Columbia. Nor will those ratios improve in Ontario, suggested Yakabuski, if thereʼs increased pressure to have certain tradespeople pay larger or new fees. “To suggest the college is keeping ratios high is laughable,” Johnson told The Mercury, noting the ratios didnʼt change when the Conservatives were in power. Dunlop, who is also a certified plumber, says the College of Tradesʼ arrival is ironic. He says tradespeopleʼs work in Ontario is improving by the year and that there is no need

Accused bike thief flees scene on foot Renfrew OPP

On Monday, Sept. 24 Renfrew OPP officers received information on the location of a stolen bike. The bike was recovered, but during the investigation police were in the process of arresting a man when he fled on foot. The search continued in Renfrew for about 30 minutes, as numerous members of the public helped police regarding the location of the accused. The 23-year-old male was arrested after he was found hiding in a Harry Street yard. The Renfrew resident was charged with possession of stolen property and resisting arrest. He was also arrested on two warrants, one for resisting arrest and one for breach of a conditional sentence. Const. Sarah Turcotte led the investigation. Officers thank the public for their assistance in locating the accused. MISCHIEF

Over the Sept. 28-30 weekend, an individual was busy in Renfrew damaging homes, cars and other property with spray paint. Damage was observed on Jennet, Quarry, Plaunt, Harry and OʼBrien streets in Renfrew. Anyone with information about these crimes is asked to contact the OPP at 613-432-3211 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477. PUBLIC INTOXICATION

Renfrew OPP officers were dispatched to a report of a naked male in a Renfrew restaurant on Thursday, Sept. 27 at 9:55 p.m. Upon arrival, officers discovered the intoxicated male in the washroom. After he was dressed, he was arrested and transported to the detachment where he was

held in custody until sober. The Renfrew male resident, age 49, was issued a ticket for being intoxicated in a public place. Const. Marc Bennett investigated. BREACH OF PROBATION

On Thursday, Sept. 27 about 11:30 p.m. while on patrol, Const. Sarah Turcotte spotted a male breaching his probation conditions. The male was known to the officer, and the through investigation she learned he had a curfew. When the officer approached the male, he provided a false name. The Bonnechere Valley resident, 23, later admitted his identity, was arrested and charged with obstructing police and breach of probation. THEFTS

A BMX bike was stolen from Renfrew the evening of Sept. 30. The bike was parked near Macʼs Convenience Store on Raglan St. South, and is described as brown with a white seat and red grips. A wallet with identification was stolen from an unlocked vehicle overnight on New Street on Sept. 23. There are no suspects. A fence was damaged and a trail camera was stolen from a property in McNab-Braeside Township. The theft was reported Sept. 27. It is believed people using a nearby ATV trail are responsible and the investigation continues with Const. Sylvie Caouette. SEATBELT CAMPAIGN

The annual provincial fall seatbelt campaign continues until Saturday, Oct. 6. Are you in the habit of buckling up when in a ve-

hicle? Your life can be saved by that simple act. Buckle up every time. Please ensure everyone in your vehicle is buckled up. The fine for not wearing a seatbelt is $240. The driver of a motor vehicle is responsible for ensuring all passengers under 16 years of age are wearing seat belts are properly secured in car seats.

Police services board hopes ad reduces unnecessary 9-1-1 calls

STAY CLEAR, STAY SAFE Steve Newman

Ontario Power Generation (OPG) reminds everyone to celebrate safely this Thanksgiving long weekend and to Stay Clear, Stay Safe around dams, hydroelectric stations and surrounding waterways. The waters around hydro dams and hydroelectric stations are not places for recreational activities. “The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) will strictly enforce the Trespass to Property Act at properties owned by Ontario Power Generation,” says OPP Const. Janice Sawbridge. “These areas can be dangerous to the public, and it is in the interest of public safety that we ask people to obey all No Trespassing signs and warnings posted.” The water levels and flows can change quickly near power dams. OPG uses warning signs, buoys, fences, booms and barriers to help identify areas of danger. OPG sites are private property and trespassers can be charged. “On Aug. 4, 2012 the Renfrew OPP investigated a trespassing complaint and charged a female for trespassing,” Sawbridge added. Visit www.opg.com/watersafety to view OPG water safety education materials and public service announcements.

The mounting number of unnecessary, local 9-1-1 calls has forced the hand of the Renfrew Police Services Board. The new edition of the large-print telephone book for Arnprior, Renfrew and area includes an advertisement at the bottom of the first page. The advertisement lists 9-1-1 for life-threatening emergencies or when a crime is in progress. The same advertisement provides two alternative numbers for non-emergencies. One is the toll-free 1-888310-1122, which connects the caller to a dispatcher, who would determine where the call would be directed. The second number is 613-432-3211 for general inquiries at the OPPʼs Renfrew detachment. Town councillor Tom Anderson, who sits on the Ren-

frew Police Services Board, hopes the $1,000 investment pays off in more ways than one, especially since the phone book reaches about 25,000 residents. Anderson said the number of unnecessary 9-1-1 calls has been climbing steadily over the past few years, so much so that the police services board convinced the producer of the phone book to alter the description of the OPP numbers supplied for each community. As recently as the 2011-12 edition, the toll-free and direct line to the local detachment were listed. The 2012-13 edition provides the toll-free and detachment numbers as well as 9-1-1 for life-threatening emergencies. The difficulty with excessive 9-l-1 calls is that two OPP officers must respond, said Anderson. Not only are there too many calls, but Jeff Scott, vice-chair of the Renfrew

Police Services Board, says there are too many accidental pocket-dials of 9-1-1. Since itʼs such an easy number to remember, Scott suggests people exclude 9-1-1 from their list of programmed numbers, to save the OPP both time and expense. PLANS FOR NEXT YEAR

Next year, depending on the success of the advertisement, the local police services board may run the same ad or produce a fridge magnet of the important OPP numbers. Meanwhile, page one of Bell Canadaʼs Upper Ottawa Valley business phone book for the Renfrew area lists 9-1-1 as the number to call for emergency situations along with images of fire, police and ambulance. Bellʼs first page also lists 11-digit, toll-free numbers for poison information, the OPP, Crime Stoppers, environmental spills, and air/marine search and rescue.

EDITORIAL

Ontarians invited to mark Breast Cancer Awareness Month October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation is encouraging people to support women and their loves ones who have been impacted by the disease. A news release Monday from the foundation noted that over this past weekend, more than 62,000 kicked off Breast Cancer Awareness Month at the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure, raising more than $13.1 million in Ontario towards new and innovative research. Similar events are being held across the

province this month, and people are encouraging to participate in and support these events. Walks and runs have become a staple of the fundraising scene and they serve multiple purpose – not only raising money for worthy causes and generating awareness, but actually improving the health of the participants through healthy exercise. The Breast Cancer Awareness Foundation announced the Pink Tour bus is also making stops across Ontario, giving communities the opportunity to join in and get the facts about the importance of breast cancer screening.

To date, over 32,000 people have been on board and pledged their support by signing the bus. “With one in nine women being diagnosed in her lifetime, breast cancer is a disease that impacts us all,” said Sandra Palmaro, CEO, Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, Ontario Region. “Together, with your support and energy, we remain focused on our vision to create a future without breast cancer.” The foundation news release said Octoberʼs Breast Cancer Awareness Month provides an opportunity not only to support women im-

pacted by the disease, but also to celebrate the advancements we have made together. Over the past 25 years, mortality rates for breast cancer have declined by 40 per cent due to advancements in screening, diagnosis and treatment. The foundationʼs investments in research continue to make strides in the areas of breast cancer prevention, earlier detection, treatment and patient care. Read The Renfrew Mercury for fundraising events throughout the month and do what you can to help.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Hate speech allowed against women

To the editor: Sunday there were about 30 people lining both sides of Raglan Street. They were abortion protesters. I cannot refer to them as pro-lifers as I would imagine people who are actually pro-life would carry signs that read “hug a child today,” “help a single mother,” “take in a homeless family,” or they

would be protesting war. Instead, they stand there and call women who have agonized over their decision (which is a human rights freedom), or young girls who have not wanted to carry a child that was brought about by rape, Murderers! Nobody who has gone through an abortion, which is legal, deserves this kind of

hate speech. I really do believe that that is exactly what it is, hate speech. If a religious group were being subjected to being called murderers it would fall under that category and would be illegal in Canada. But because it is directed at women, it is allowed. Janice Gougeon Renfrew

Results concerning when human life begins To the editor: Motion 312 determining when a child becomes human life in the womb went to vote in Parliament on September 26,2012 with 91 voting that, yes, a child is human in the womb, while 203 voted against. Two days prior to the vote, I received a letter in the mail from Campaign Life Coalition stating an “A+ Parliamentarian Report Card for MP Cheryl Gallant, Renfrew-

Nipissing-Pembroke. The letter quotes, “In the fight for the protection of human life, so much depends on our politicians in Ottawa. Thank God that your Member of Parliament, Cheryl Gallant, is among the best. She has consistently and without hesitation supported the unborn and the family on every occasion . Not content to passively wait until voting time to prove

that she is pro-life, Cheryl has spoken out eloquently against anti-life and family legislation. We all know that Parliament needs more MPs like Cheryl Gallant and it is important to let her know.” And yes, Cheryl voted “yes” to Motion 312. Thank you, Cheryl. Jeremiah 1:4 “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you.” Pastor Rose Leclaire Mount St. Patrick

Trades Continued from Page 4

Johnson, who was a Conservative MPP in the mid1990s, says the college should bring in $17- to $20-million in 2013, whereas fees received in 2014 should be about $30 million — not the $84-million figure quoted by some PC critics. “The decision was made a long time ago, when the legislation was drafted, that this would be a self-funding body,” said Johnson. The membership fee structure is misunderstood by many people, but Johnson said basically the certificates of qualification will sharply increase in cost, but be membership fees that include the former cost of certificates of qualification.

Previous fees were about $20 per year, but will now be about $120. Yet they will still be the lowest of any regulatory body in the province, says Johnson. The Ontario Construction Employers Coalition has launched a grassroots campaign that urges the Ontario government to shut down the College of Trades and stop the trades tax. To join the petition, visit www.stopthetradestax. ca However, Yakabuski encouraged opponents to write the premier and the Ministry of Trades, Colleges and Universities, since those letters or emails tend to have more impact. Build the pressure, Yakabuski told Fridayʼs audience. Scott Yemen, co-owner for Yemenʼs Electric in Renfrew,

didnʼt like what he heard at the roundtable. “It (the college) needs to be gone,” said Yemen. “John (Yakabuski) spoke very well about it. It just needs to go. Itʼs nothing but bad news and bureaucracy.” “Whoʼs asking for it?” said Pamic. “I have yet to meet a tradesperson who is asking for the College of Trades,” said Pamic. “I have yet to meet an employer who wants this type of organization … What are its goals? Itʼs power and control; itʼs very simple. Itʼs going to create compulsory certification of any trades and Quebec-style construction.” Johnson predicts the Ontario College of Trades will become a brand most businesses and tradespeople will identify with positively.

MRS. NEW DIDNĘźT JUDGE COOKING: In one place in The Mercury it was noted Mrs. James New was one of the judges on dairy and household exhibits at Renfrew Fair. That was incorrect. In part, Mrs. New did assist Mr. Betts in judging the butter, but not the cooking. It is perhaps worth mentioning as Mrs. NewĘźs daughter, Mrs. Robert McEwen, was prize winner in the cooking department. Mrs. New went to Cobden Fair this year for the seventh time to judge in the dairy and household department, and there she says is the place to see the cooking display. Renfrew Fair isnĘźt in it, in that department with Cobden. THE CEMETERY: Work at the caretaking of the cemetery will be concluded for the

their names placed on the revised lists. Mr. Milton Stewart, returning ofďŹ cer for South Renfrew, advises The Mercury, that there is still an opportunity for voters to vote even though their name is not on the lists. If you live in a place of less than 3,500 population you may have a vote by taking the oath. For South Renfrew, that means that only those living in Arnprior or Renfrew will be unable to vote unless they have their names on the revised list. SOUTH RENFREW TEACHERS CONVENING IN RENFREW: The annual meeting of the TeachersĘź Institute of South Renfrew is to be held in the separate school auditorium, Renfrew, on Thursday and Friday of next week. One item on the program is discussion of the new course of study, to be led on

the afternoon on the ďŹ rst day by Principal Underhill of the Arnprior Public School. In the same afternoon Mr. R.M. Winter, director of extension work, QueenĘźs University, is to give an address. Miss Charlotte Whitton is on the program for Friday afternoon for a story of the coronation of King George and Queen Elizabeth, she having attended the ceremony last summer. There are to be the usual grade meetings. Teachers will meet at the luncheon at Hotel Renfrew with Mr. A.B.C. Throop as guest speaker. OCTOBER 5, 1977

MILL CUTS BACK 140 WORKERS: About 140 of the 380 mill workers of the Consolidated Bathurst Ltd. Pontiac Division plant near Portage-du-Fort are on tem-

porary layoff. The layoff could last two to three weeks, according to Bill McLachlan, division manager. McLachlan pins part of the blame on an extremely high inventory of its product as well as a maintenance job usually undertaken at this time of the year. He said the plant normally shuts down part of its operation in May and September, even in the best market conditions for repair and upkeep. Those whose jobs are dependant on the mill operating are laid off while the maintenance and repair people for example, remain. The mill workers, members of the Canadian Paperworkers Union Local 420, are eligible for government beneďŹ ts in connection with the temporary layoff. MERCHANTS SEEK CURFEW: The Renfrew Retail Merchants Association

might approach town council to request that council introduce a curfew for town youths. Jeff Scott, vice-president of the merchants, said the merchantsĘź attempt at beautiďŹ cation of the downtown core through planters and benches is being met with vandalism and carelessness. Since the planters and trees were installed this past summer seven have been demolished. Only one of these was hit by a car, the remainder were vandalized. Each cost $60. Additionally, three park benches along the sidewalks have been broken by automobiles, requiring more expenses for repair work. Mr. ScottĘźs proposal to bring a curfew to Renfrew comes on the heels of vandalism to planters this past week, when three planters were rolled on the sidewalk, two being destroyed in the process.

Drought Level 2 Continues County of Renfrew residents and businesses,on groundwater and municipal sources, are encouraged to continue to practice water conservation with a target of a 20% reduction in water use. Despite recent rainfall, the groundwater levels have not shown any significant level of recharge, and they are below normal across the County. Even if we experience significant rainfall this autumn, our groundwater levels may not re-charge adequately for the winter months.

If you have a dug well where you can safely and easily measure the level, record it and check weekly to determine if your well is recharging or if you are at risk of losing your water supply. Do not attempt to measure levels in a drilled well - consult a well drilling contractor. Indicators of low water: lower than normal flows, sediment in the water or cloudy water all indicate low well water levels. You should immediately consult a licensed water well driller. The Renfrew County & District Health Unit is recommending that you have a water quality test performed to ensure your groundwater is safe for human consumption.

Much done, much to do, guest speaker tells Take Back the Night Peter Clark peter.clark@metroland.com

About 50 women were out for the Take Back The Night March Sept. 26 with a strong message â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to make violence against women and rape things of the past. The 20th annual march in Renfrew County took place where it began in 1993, in Renfrew. The night also included activities at the Trinity-St. AndrewĘźs United Church hall. JoAnne Brooks, centre director of the WomenĘźs Sexual Assault Centre of Renfrew County in Pembroke, was pleased with the turnout. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think what was so en-

couraging for me was the number of young women that came out for Take Back the Night. It is inspiring. IĘźm in my 50s and have been doing this for 20 years. ItĘźs encouraging to see itĘźs in good hands for them to take over. ItĘźs too bad (the cause still exists), but itĘźs good to see they care about the issue.â&#x20AC;? The night included a musical sing-along with Jenny and Jean, Nonie the Clown making balloon hats, and players from the Renfrew County WomenĘźs Roller Derby team. Brooks also thanked the Ontario Teachers Federation and George Jackson Toyota for their support. One woman who spoke said

that, growing up in the 1970s, it bothered her to no end when her mother used to say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;ItĘźs different for girls.â&#x20AC;? Now, 30 years later, and with her own son and 15-year-old daughter, she says, her mom was right. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thirty years later, it is different for girls. She has to have somebody walk her home at night, (but) boys donĘźt. Hopefully in another 30 years, her daughter can walk home like my son does today.â&#x20AC;? Brooks introduced speaker Pam Cross, a feminist lawyer she met in Waterloo doing theatre as 12-year-old kids,. Cross is well-known and respected in legal reform circles, particularly for her expertise on family law issues as

they relate to violence against women. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Here we are â&#x20AC;&#x201C; recognizing and honouring 20 years of supporting women in Renfrew County who have experienced sexual violence. Twenty years of listening to womenĘźs stories of rape, sexual assault, sexual harassment, emotional

devastation, physical injury, fear and anger,â&#x20AC;? Cross said in her address. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Twenty years of hearing, supporting and watching women survive, heal, thrive, become empowered. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Twenty years of helping women understand it is not, ever, our fault; of educating

the community to stop rape before it happens; of advocating with government, of teaching the police and Crown Attorneys, of dealing with our own experiences with sexual violence.â&#x20AC;? To read CrossĘźs full address, visit yourottawaregion. com/rural north.

Shining a light for children Ernie and Joann Weigelin of Lantern of Hope Ministries continue to shine a light on the plight of children trapped in the sex trade in foreign lands with his second annual camp out on the Golden Lake Community Centre grounds Sept. 22 to 24. His effort raised more than $8,000 to combat child exploitation and sex trafficking in Asia. “The wind Saturday was ripping the posts out of the ground,” he said, noting the wide range of weather from heavy rains and high winds to sunny skies Sunday. Weigelin built the cardboard house that children painted for him and was his shelter for the weekend.

Level 2 conditions continue despite recent rainfall Peter Clark peter.clark@metroland.com

Despite recent rainfall, the Level 2 drought continues across Renfrew County, Greater Madawaska fire chief and community emergency management co-ordinator Betsy Sayers noted to council Sept. 25. “All the rain weʼve had has helped a little bit. But we are still monitoring. We have not heard of any wells going dry or septic problems,” Sayers said. “Bless our souls, we managed to make it through the summer without a forest fire somewhere. To our knowledge, there hasnʼt been a lot of personal damage.” Sayers said they may be forced to extend the fire ban longer than people expect. “Unless we have a huge snowfall, weʼll start next year with a fire ban.” In addition to forest fire danger ratings, the Ministry of Natural Resources is now also providing information on surface fuel danger levels. This is of concern as the danger level for the Plevna area has been identified as extreme. “We are in the process of obtaining access to all of this data so a comprehensive Greater Madawaska wide risk assessment can be conducted. The Low Water Response team (LWRT) is now moving into pre-planning mode as concerns regarding overwinter impact are now being assessed in anticipation of the drought continuing deep into the late fall or early winter months,” Sayers added. A drought-impact questionnaire was released in late Au-

Hoot for Hospice Nov.10 The third annual Hoot for Hospice returns Saturday, Nov. 10 in support of Hospice Renfrew. “This is a ladies-only event in the middle of hunting season that involves laughs, decorating of tables, food, music, and, yes, dancing,” says organizer Jo-Anne Dowdall-Brown. There will be entertainment by Eddy and the Sting Rays, live auctions, silent auctions and door prizes at the Renfrew Armouries. “This event has raised over $14,000 in the first years and has approximately 200 ladies in attendance each year,” says Dowdall-Brown. The evening is sponsored by Mulvihill Drug Mart Pharma Choice. Dinner will be provided by several local restaurants and catrerers and there will be voting for the best-dressed table, which will seat six to eight people. Tickets are $40 per person and are available at Keeping Company, Renfrew Home Hardware, Hospice Renfrew or by calling Dowdall-Brown at 613-432-8080.

gust to more than 500 township residents and businesses through a variety of sources. They are posted at stores in the township, on the GM website, and were emailed to all members of the Lions, seniors and fish and game clubs. The questionnaire was not sent with tax bills as the waste management clear-bag information had already been included. Just five completed questionnaires were returned. “Itʼs probably good for the fire department that people arenʼt responding to the questionaire because they arenʼt personally affected,” Coun. Karin Lehnhardt observed.

By encouraging breast cancer research and raising awareness of the importance of early detection, we can all help save lives.

the age of 40, women should begin getting mammograms every one to two years. In addition, healthy lifestyle habits like physical activity, not smoking, minimizing alcohol intake and consuming plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables can help women reduce their risk factors.

It is estimated that nearly 200,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year, and that more than 40,000 of these women will die. Breast cancer is a threat to women of all ages, races and walks of life. Even men are at risk for breast cancer, with approximately 1,700 men diagnosed each year. These numbers remind us why it is so important to know the signs, symptoms and risk factors of breast cancer. Early detection of breast cancer is the best weapon against the disease, which means breast self-exams should be performed regularly, with clinical breast exams every one to three years. By

For many years, the prestigious Ontario Junior Citizen of the Year Awards program has acknowledged the best of OntarioĘźs youth. You can help continue to recognize outstanding young people by nominating someone age six to 17 years. The award recognized youth who: â&#x20AC;˘ are involved in worthwhile community service; â&#x20AC;˘ are contributing to the community while living with a disability; â&#x20AC;˘ have performed an act of heroism in the past year; â&#x20AC;˘ are â&#x20AC;&#x153;good kidsâ&#x20AC;? who show a commitment to making life

better or do things not normally expected of someone their age. Twelve young people will be chosen as ďŹ nal recipients and invited to an awards ceremony in the spring of 2013. The program is co-ordinated by the Ontario Community Newspapers Association and its 300-plus member newspapers across the province. Each young person nominated will receive a CertiďŹ cate of Recognition from their local community newspaper. More information is available at www.ocna.org/juniorcitizen. The nomination deadline is Nov. 30.

The Royal Canadian Legion Renfrew Branch 148 hosted a fundraiser Sept. 8 for a couple of local projects. Breakfast was held from 7 to 11 a.m. with proceeds going to the Legion building fund. Ron Kilby handled the chef duties while the Ladies Auxiliary and other Legion members helped. The Renfrew Scouts chipped in with the clean-up of plates when people were ďŹ nished with breakfast.

BURTON YORK, Jamie In loving memory of our dear Jamie who left us so suddenly and tragically while at work, October 6, 2009. He is gone, but not forgotten, And, as it dawns another year, In our lonely hours of thinking, Thoughts of him are always near. Days of sadness will come o’er us, Many think the wound is healed, But they little know the sorrow, That lies in the heart concealed.



God knew you were suffering He knew you were in pain He knew you would never Get well on earth again He saw the road was getting rough And the hills were hard to climb So He closed his weary eyelids And whispered “peace be thine” It broke our hearts to lose you But you did not go alone For part of us went with you.

BIRD CAGE FEEDER

We received this email from Velma Durant. Ila and Jim: The birdcage feeder has been a success with the chickadees at the moment, and I saw a finch using it yesterday.

SCENE FROM THE HAWK’S EYE You were correct; they dart in and dart back out again. I don’t doubt that the other birds, finches and sparrows will follow as the weather gets colder. My indoor cat is enjoying the activities, keeps him occupied for hours. I love it when a plan comes together. Thanks again, Velma Durant Glad to be of help. The feeder provides food for the small birds that cannot eat enough food to provide energy for them during the overnight hours. The small birds need the food but the jays, crows, squirrels and starlings will have the feeder emptied before noon if not protected. If you provide mixed seed and corn on the ground or on a table feeder, all will get a share and survive. It is not too soon to start to put out some food, corn and mixed seed for the birds, as it will get them accustomed to where the feeders are located. EVENING GROSBEAK

Cecil and Donna Gilmour had a male evening grosbeak at their feeder for about two weeks. Cecil says it is the first they have seen in a few years. It is hard to believe that 10 years ago providing food for two or three hundred grosbeaks was not uncommon. A change in feeding habits such as the failure of the balsam, spruce and pine cone crop can drastically change the number of finches at our feeders. Birds follow the natural food crops. We remember

Arnprior Automotive

JIM FERGUSON

the thousands of Bohemian waxwings that were in the area last winter to harvest the buckthorn berry and hawthorn berry crops. A bumper crop of small mammals, mice voles and moles combined with a shortage of lemmings in the north will bring many hundreds of snowy and great grey owls as well as enticing rough-legged and red-tailed hawks to stay for the winter. HUMMINGBIRD FEEDERS

It is very difficult to decide when to bring in our hummingbird feeders. We do not want to let them go hungry when they need food the most but there is no need to put out food if they are not going to use it. We make the decision based on the length of time the birds do not come to feed usually about two weeks. There are some late dates which will make the decision even more difficult. In 1984 and 1992 hummingbirds were seen on Oct. 25 and in 2009 and 2011 the hummers were seen Oct. 2 and 4 respectively. Then there was the rufous hummingbird that was seen in Eganville in December. A BIRDER

Ambrose Adamchick will be missed at our annual Christmas Bird Count. He participated each year since the beginning of the count in 1988. Ambrose was truly an outdoor man.

R0011653427_1004

Bob and Susie English had white-crowned sparrows at their feeder on Thursday of last week. They were the first to arrive this fall. Experiments to determine the ability of white-crowned sparrows to find their way home when released at varying distances up to 100 miles (165 km) away found that more returned when released close the date of arrival on the wintering ground than at later dates. It was also found that the birds made their way home within a few days when released 35 miles (56 km) and between 60 (98 km) and 100 (165 km) miles away. When released from distances in between they did not or could not use the knowledge of the local terrain or any method of navigation to find their way home. The question has still not been answered as to why they could not find their way home when released between 35 miles (56 km) and 60 miles (98 km) away. The numbers of whitecrowned sparrows at our feeders will increase for the next two months as long as there is food (seeds) for them. They are ground feeders but will feed at a table feeder. Bob and Susan had a pair of cardinals at their feeder and they brought one of their young with them. Clarence Bos had a pair of cardinals at his feeder last week as well.

Enjoy your birding. Ila and Jim Ferguson, 5313 River Road, RR 5, Renfrew, Ont., K7V 3Z8. Phone 613-4322738 or email jamesh@nrtco. net.

Wolves rebound with win over Perth Peter Clark peter.clark@metroland.com

ItĘźs the unpredictability of junior hockey. One team can look so good one night and poor the next, or vice versa. For the Renfrew Timberwolves, it was an embarrassing night Friday as the Stittsville Royals rolled past an undisciplined Wolves team 8-2 at the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre. However, the Wolves turned their fortunes around at home Sunday evening. The Wolves snapped a 2-2 tie with ďŹ ve consecutive goals en route to a 7-3 drubbing of the Perth Blue Wings. The weekend results leave the Wolves with a 2-and-3 record in the Valley Division of the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League. They again have two home games this weekend. WOLVES 7, PERTH 3

After squandering an early 2-0 advantage, the Wolves grabbed the lead for good when Lyle Stressman beat Perth netminder Jason Shaw from the top of the left-wing face-off circle. StressmanĘźs shot capped a three-way passing play around the perimeter with Wolves captain Jesse Riopelle and Dallas Farr on a powerplay with just 32 seconds left in the period. The Wolves upped the ante to 6-2 after 40 minutes of play. Patrick Dick had two goals, and Riopelle, newcomer Patrick McGrath, Stressman, Farr and Tanner Smith singles. Riopelle, Farr and Smith added three assists, and Dick two. The WolvesĘź specialty teams enjoyed a ďŹ ne night. Renfrew scored three times on powerplays and twice while

McGrath was recently acquired from the Arnprior Packers. The Wolves were 7-3 winners. shorthanded. The only dent came when Perth scored on a two-man advantage in the last minute of the third period. Matt Gagne faced 34 shots in the WolvesĘź goal, and robbed the Blue Wings of a couple of sure goals. Shaw and veteran Jeremy Wright blocked 31 of 38 Renfrew shots. STITTSVILLE 8, WOLVES 2

The Stittsville Royals struck for ďŹ ve goals before the Wolves showed much interest, notching their ďŹ rst marker halfway through the second period. Twenty-two seconds later Stittsville matched the Renfrew tally, and the night of misery for the crowd at the MAC continued. Alex Hulford had two goals

to lead the Royals. Nathan Humoth and Jesse Riopelle were the lone Wolves to dent the scoreboard. Arun Kumar faced 31 shots, but it wasnĘźt a tough night for the Stittsville goalkeeper. KumarĘźs highlight of the night came late in the third period when he stopped the Wolves Sean Kyte on a penalty shot and then on a rebound for good measure. Wolves netminder Nicolas Hodgins allowed seven goals in the loss. The Royals had 44 shots. The Wolves had 97 penalty minutes, and in the third period, lost the services of Jared Riopelle (ďŹ ght), Kurtis Leclaire (a charging match penalty that will land the Wolves winger a three-game suspension) and Casey Doner (two misconducts). Doner received

a one-game ban. Overall, Renfrew amassed 97 penalty minutes. Stittsville had 84. A third-period melee with 6:19 left resulted in 82 minutes. Taking the gameĘźs ďŹ rst ďŹ ve penalties pushed the Wolves into a huge hole.

Jaguars enjoy quality start to sports year Peter Clark peter.clark@metroland.com

Four St. JosephĘźs Jaguars sports teams got the new school year off to a ďŹ ne start Sept. 25. The Jaguars swept the Mackenzie Mustangs in an Upper Ottawa Valley High School Athletic Association girls basketball doubleheader in Deep River, while back home boys volleyball teams did the same in opening 2012 with a sweep of the visiting Bishop Smith Crusaders. The senior girls doubled Mackenzie

44-22 on the basketball court. Rebecca McLaren led the Jaguars with 15 points while Shannon Charbonneau added nine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They had a strong four quarters,â&#x20AC;? Mike McMahon said of his team. The coach was also pleased with the play of the Jaguars defence. Kathryn David drained 12 points while Elizabeth Chirico also had a good game offensively in the Junior Jaguars 40-26 triumph. Coach Mark Valliquette called it a â&#x20AC;&#x153;great team effort.â&#x20AC;? On the volleyball court, the Senior

Jaguars had all hands on desk in a 3-0 win over Bishop Smith. It was the ďŹ rst of two consecutive 3-0 decisions for coach Trent SkelhornĘźs squad. The Jaguars also blanked the General Panet Panthers in Petawawa Thursday. The junior clash on the home court Sept. 25 turned into a barnburner, but the Jaguars got the job done, as they outlasted the visiting Crusaders in ďŹ ve sets. Coach Meghan Cahill said it was a great win to start the season. See JAGUARS, Page 26

Petite C team sweeps

SUBMITTED

Running for breast cancer awareness The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run For The Cure is Canada’s largest single day volunteer fundraising event for research, education and awareness. Last year, 170,000 Canadians raised more than $30 million dollars in the CIBC Run For The Cure. 2012 has another successful year with another $30-plus million raised. Renfrew’s Jayne Styles organized a run for the Renfrew area held Sept. 30. It turned out to be a rainy morning, but the weather did not deter a small group of participants from coming out to support the cause. The five-kilometre course included Goshen and Yantha roads. From left are Joseph Federer, Pat McGregor, run organizer Jayne Styles, Faye Warren, Colleen Berry and Bonnie McIntyre. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month.

“Play of the game goes to Joey Hamilton for using his stellar soccer skills to keep the ball in play,” she said. On Thursday, the Junior Jaguars followed the lead of

their senior counterparts with a 3-0 win in Petawawa. The UOVHSAA has instituted a new league realignment for the 2012-13 boys basketball season, which starts in a couple of months. North and south divisions are being introduced. Fellowes, Bishop Smith, Jeanne-

Carolyn Wytenburg earned the shutout. The Petite C team then took on West Ottawa on the trip home and were victorious in convincing fashion once again, this time 7-0. Erica Mosseau had a hat trick while Kaelyn McGrimmon added two UOV markers. Emma Kluke and Jordan Benedict chipped in with one goal apiece.

Curves raising breast cancer awareness with $0 fees in October Throughout Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, Curves fitness centres in Canada will focus on raising awareness about the lifesaving importance of risk management, early detection and early treatment of breast cancer. Because women can help reduce their risk for breast cancer by staying in good health, Curves clubs nationwide, including Curves of Renfrew, are offering $0-joining-fee memberships from Oct. 1 through Oct. 14 to new members who show proof of a mammogram performed within the last year or who donate $25 to the Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) or the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF). According to statistics from the CCS, nearly 22,700 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in 2012, an average of 62 women every day. Breast cancer is the most common cancer in Canadian women. One in nine can expect to be diagnosed with it and one in 29 will die of it. “Our annual Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign is an important part of the Curves mission to strengthen women,” according to the staff of Curves of Renfrew. “We offer a supportive, fun, non-competitive environment that encourages women to take time out from their role as caregivers to take care of themselves.” During October, Curves of Renfrew will take a threepronged approach to raising

awareness about this devastating disease: 1. Early Detection. In addition to breast self-examination, the CCS recommends that women 40-49 talk to their doctors about their risk of breast cancer, along with the benefits and risks of mammography. Women 50-69 should have a mammogram every two years. Women 70 and older should discuss mammography with their doctors. 2. Risk Management. Only about five to 10 percent of breast cancers are hereditary, so prevention is an important risk management strategy. To help women significantly reduce their risk of developing breast cancer, Curves encourages them to schedule an annual doctor visit, perform monthly breast self-exams, eat a nutritious diet and make time for regular exercise to promote fitness and weight control. 3. Research. Curves of Renfrew members will have the opportunity to support critical research by joining fundraising efforts to honour the memory of breast cancer victims and celebrate the current and future birthdays of breast cancer survivors at GirlTime Birthday Celebration events. For more about activities in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and how to exercise good breast health, contact Curves of Renfrew at 613-432-3444 or 97P8S6LK@curvesmail.com or visit www.curves.com.

Laurel Rafuse Memorial – Generosity name of the game Jennifer Creeden Community Living executive director

The 19th annual Laurel Rafuse Memorial Golf Tournament held on Sept. 15 saw 31 teams enjoy a great round of golf at the Renfrew Golf Club, some friendly competition, time to renew connections and share a meal with old friends, family and colleagues – all in the name of a great cause. The sole reason for the longevity and continuing success of this tournament is generosity. The generosity shared freely by so many community members, local businesses, returning golfers, sponsors and the Rafuse family enables children and youth with developmental disabilities to continue to have the opportunity to experience a variety of activities like fishing, swimming, rafting, museum tours and afternoons at the park, to mention a few. Most importantly, they get

to do this with the proper support and staffing in place to make it a fun, safe and successful summer camp experience. These programs would not exist for these children without the generous support of everyone associated with this tournament. Thank you to our corporate sponsors who return every year, including Canadian Tire, Renfrew Home Hardware, RBC Dominion Securities, Ontario Power Generation, Enbridge and C.A. Bruce Insurance Brokers – their assistance and commitment is truly appreciated. Our gratitude to everyone whose generosity has made this day possible: Special thanks to myFM for their support leading up to the tournament and for their commentary during the evening. Thank you to Enbridge who brought out all the help for a great BBQ lunch. Special thanks to the Ren-

hole and John Yakabuski, winner of the 50/50, all returning their prize money back to the cause. Wow. Thank you to our organizing committee members Carol and David Sulphur, Dan Sheahan, Doug Miller, Laurie Millar, Steve Dregas, Ken Costello, Bill and Lois Butson, Ann Blimkie and Sharleen Van Woezik, whose

frew Golf Club for their flawless running of the tournament, their help and the wonderful evening meal that everyone enjoyed. We must acknowledge the feeling of community spirit that “in the moment” generosity brings out when people like Laurie Millar; winner of the putting contest; Mathew Graham, winner of the betting

hard work behind the scenes make this tournament come together. We and all the young people who benefit are so grateful to the Rafuse family for their continued dedication and commitment to this tournament. Heartfelt appreciation goes to all the volunteers, to the local businesses and individuals who donated prizes

and to the faithful golfers who continue to support this tournament annually. When you look at the list of donors and sponsors, you see the generosity of this community. See you next year when we celebrate the 20th annual Laurel Rafuse Memorial Golf Tournament! You will not want to miss it!

Ready to throw some rocks Andy Sklepowicz Behind the Glass

Itʼs hard to believe the season is starting next week, but as the chill in the air reminds us, winter is not too far away. This season is lining up as a busy and fun year at the curling club, with many events already on the calendar and others in the planning stage. Besides hosting the provincial masters in January, which will be a whole club affair, there are other playdowns taking place. The Dominion club zones on Oct. 19 and 20 will start us off, with the Dominion stick zones to follow. Hopefully, Renfrew will be well represented at both. But it is not just the serious curler that is well served by the club but also the fun curler, with the Friendship ʼspiel taking place right off the bat on Saturday, Oct 13. A great time is guaranteed and the hearty food will definitely fill the void that a day of exercise always creates. So get a team together or sign up as an individual and enjoy a fun day on the ice. Remember, prior curling experience is not required, as there is always someone there to help a newcomer! The menʼs and ladies club championships have been moved up to December this year to accommodate the busy schedule and this weekend is always a highlight of the curling season. The mixed championships stay in February and all of the fun spiels are also back in the second half of the season with our renowned International Spaghetti Spiel

Tennis for Karp The Morning Tennis Group held its eighth annual Karp Seeman Memorial Tennis Tournament at the MaTe-Way Park tennis courts Saturday morning. Participating in the closing event of 2012, from left, in front row are Janet McGonigal, Margaret Ann Fraser, Sharron Cayen, Sue Comeau and Penny Bergin; and back row, Wayne Fraser, Mark Prinn, Robert Cayen and Charlie Renauld. The duo of Sharron Cayen and Sue Comeau captured this year’s Karp Seeman Memorial tennis championship.

leading us off. Be sure to sign up early for this one as it always fills up fast. The interclub competitions that are held on Wednesdays are being set up and all are popular with the day curlers. Both the menʼs Low Cup and the Ladies Autumn Leaves championships were missing the usual Renfrew name on the hardware last year and will require a big turnaround this year. Everyone also enjoys the ʻfriendliesʼ as they take us to different clubs around the Valley in the spirit of good fun and great food. We return the favour, of course, and that doubles the pleasure. So sign up and get the most out of your club membership.

The Renfrew Collegiate Raiders split a pair of girls basketball games to get the Upper Ottawa Valley High School Athletic Association 2012 sports season underway. The Junior Raiders posted a 37-13 win over the Opeongo Wildcats in the gymnasium of the Douglas-area school. Jenika Steele had 10 points to pace the Raiders attack. The Senior Raiders were clipped 36-32 by the Wildcats despite 15 points from RCIʼs Amanda Tubman. On Thursday, Raider teams made their regular-season home debuts on the basketball ball court. The junior girls fended off the General Panet Panthers 3122. Coach Jason Wilson said the team played much better defence and also controlled the game on offence. Andrea Martin, Jenika Steele, Mickerra Shepherd and Courtney Roach put in solid efforts for RCI. The Petawawa school took the senior clash by eight points.

Rusty Blades C the light in Kingston Peter Clark peter.clark@metroland.com

The Renfrew Rusty Blades competed in the 13th annual International 50-plus Amherst oldtimers hockey tournament in Amherstview this past weekend. Upon their arrival, the Rusty Blades learned they were moved up a level after capturing last yearʼs C title. The Renfrew team dropped a close 3-1 encounter to the

Kingston Buccaneers in the Renfrew squadʼs first game Saturday morning. On Saturday afternoon, the Rusty Blades met a second Amherstview-area team, losing 5-0 to Ormstown. On Saturday evening, the team held a players only dinner-meeting to discuss their lack of offence in the two games. They also shortened the team curfew from 5 a.m. to 4 a.m. Changes the team made

certainly paid dividends as the Rusty Blades came out strong Sunday morning against a team from Messena, N.Y. The Renfrew squad controlled the contest from start to finish en route to a 4-1 victory to successfully defend the coveted C division title. Terry Mosco, Pat McKinnon, Tom Rousselle and Doug Letang scored for the Rusty Blades. Beatty Campbell and Dean Fiebig shared goaltending duties.

Junior and Senior Raiders triumph Continued from Page 28

The senior boys volleyball team opened the season with a 3-0 win over host Opeongo. GRIDIRON WINS

Both RCI Raiders teams were big winners on the football ďŹ eld Friday. The Junior Raiders blanked the homeďŹ eld Carleton Place Notre Dame Warriors 36-0. Quarterback Billy Karras directed the offence that created scoring opportunities, many of which the Raiders converted.

Nick Hazen had two major scores, including a sizzling 100-yard kickoff return. Phil Kadlec, Alex Beauchamp and Austin Scheuneman also broke the goalline for six points. Coach Ed Oegema had praise for the defence, which thwarted Notre Dame at every turn. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Raiders defensive line and linebackers forced one turnover after another, particularly in the second half,â&#x20AC;? the coach said. The Senior Raiders turned back an inexperienced but slowly improving Fellowes Falcons squad 42-12 in Pem-

broke. It was 28-0 by the end of the ďŹ rst quarter. Connor Jamieson and Matt Murdock had two touchdowns, while Adam Martin and Cooper Brown added others. Rudy Kadlec blocked a punt and Brown converted all six major scores. Devin Clouthier took over the quarterbacking duties from Brown in the second half. The Raiders are in Arnprior Saturday for the annual Turkey Bowl doubleheader versus the Arnprior Redmen. The junior teams kick off the action at 1 p.m.

Taking a bite out of a fish story Last weekĘźs story on the Renegade Bass tournament in Cobden got cut off at the pass. Left out was Brett Miller of the organizing committee commenting on the support the event received from people of Cobden and

area, and how many took in the action at the municipal boat launch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By the time cars were parked, and with the competitors, it ďŹ lls up pretty quick,â&#x20AC;? is what the last line should have read. R0011661897

The annual Independent Planning charity golf tournament was held at Calabogie Highlands Aug. 31. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had a great day of golf with 120 participants and raised $7,500 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Lesley Wright of Independent Planning Group said. From left are Wright, winning team members Jaime Hass, Andrew MacKay, Rory MacKay, Dave Wiggins and Karl Murphy of Independent Planning Group.
