MPP Yakabuski outraged at cost of cancellation Staff

News - Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MPP John Yakabuski is outraged at the Auditor General’s report that the Liberals are responsible for at least $675 million of unnecessary costs after cancelling the Oakville gas plant. “The auditor’s report found that the contract to construct the plant contained several clauses that did not oblige the government to pay cancellation costs,” said an Oct. 8 news release from Yakabuski’s office. “Despite these protections, the McGuintyWynne government waived the clauses to speed up the cancellation and avoid having the plant become an election issue,” the release said. “For crass political reasons, the Liberals gave away the key to the vault and said help yourself,” Yakabuski said. “If you’re wondering why your hydro bills continue to skyrocket the culprit is Liberal mismanagement of the energy system, pure and simple” he added. Yakabuski said the auditor also found that the extra cost of delivering gas to Napanee, where the Oakville plant was re-located, could add another $140 million to the total. “Kathleen Wynne has some explaining to do. The auditor made clear today that the government knew as far back as October 2010 that the costs they were quoting for the cancellation was a fraction of what the taxpayers would end up paying” Yakabuski said. “The facts are clear; the Liberal party wasted hundreds of millions of taxpayers’ dollars just to save a Liberal seat. The people of Ontario will have the opportunity to pass judgement on their decision,” he said. The release said that as recently as her appearance at Justice Committee on April 3, 2013 Premier Wynne was telling Ontarians the cost of cancelling the Oakville power plant could be as low $33 million.
A Musical Offering All 300 tickets were sold, and then some, for A Musical Offering, a Friday night concert held at Our Lady of Fatima Church. All proceeds from the Oct. 4 concery went in support of the church’s building fund.

Insurance coverage to the rescue in Horton Steve Newman firstname.lastname@example.org
A July 7 windstorm inflicted major damage to the roof of Horton’s municipal garage. At first, Horton staff sought quotes for partial and
full roof replacement. However, the insurance company, following discussions with the company with the lowest quote, deemed it necessary to replace the entire roof. See INSURANCE, page 2

ing, drywall, and electrical, and complete the painting. LANDFILL HARVEST
Horton council has recommended the township request tenders for harvesting mature cedar and other trees damaged at the Horton landfill site by wind and snow. Larry Polk, a local forest management consultant, will manage the harvest and receive his management fee from the harvest proceeds. About $50,000 is expected from the harvest, which will take place over the winter. About 30 acres of the landfill site is occupied by trees. ATV FOR FUTURE RAFFLE
Council seconded the building fundraising sub-committeeâ€™s recommendation to purchase a mini all-terrain vehicle from Vern Barr for $847.50, including HST. The ATV will be used as a prize for a future raffle draw. Originally, the ATV was to be a prize for a major raffle, be-
fore the committee discovered it didnâ€™t have legal status to issue a lottery licence for a raffle at the 2013 Renfrew Fair. Efforts are underway so the township can partner with the Castleford Ice Fishing Derby, or another charitable organization, for future raffles. SNOWMOBILE TRAIL MAINTENANCE
The Snow Goers Club is seeking a government grant that would allow Hortonâ€™s 13 kilometres of the abandoned CN rail bed to be gated and for gravel to be added to a bridge section. From Yantha Road to the Town of Renfrew border, thereâ€™s a need for moveable â€˜permanentâ€™ barriers. If built, there would be a single barrier at the opposite ends of the Horton section of the trail, plus two barriers on each side of the trailâ€™s intersections at Goshen, Whitton and Lime Kiln roads. These barriers are intended to prevent larger vehicles from using the railway bed during the non-snow seasons. Additional work will be done
on brushing and removal of trees that have fallen close to the trail. Plans for this work were determined following a trail-condition assessment by Bill Jamieson of the Snow Goers Club and Coun. Glen Campbell in September. As Campbellâ€™s own photos show, the trail is generally in excellent condition. CONSTRUCTION WORK
It appears Hortonâ€™s new construction activity will remain about the same as it was in the previous two years. As of the end of September, 52 building permits had been issued for construction value at $6.3 million. That compares to $6.8 million in 2013 and $6.1 million in 2011. In the last two years, the final three months of the year have included at least $700,000 in construction work. The busiest month this year was May, with 17 permits accounting for $2,087,000 in construction work.

Admaston-Bromley library awarded literacy grant Admaston-Bromley Public Library
Community - The Admaston-Bromley Public Library in Douglas is the recipient of the prestigious 2013 Sarah Badgley Literacy Grant. Named in honour of Sarah Rosalind Badgley, a lover of books who in 2001 at the age of three was killed in an automobile accident, the $500 grant is awarded to Ontario rural public libraries and urban public libraries that serve a rural clientele. The grant can be used for a variety of purposes that promote children’s initiatives. Admaston-Bromley Public Library will use the funds to create Books to Go story kits for young and emergent readers. The product of the creative imagination of librarian Jane Wouda, the kits will contain a selection of picture books on a particular theme, as well as CDs or DVDs relating to that theme, literacy information for parents, and additional resources that may include games, activities, puzzle or rhymes relating to the theme. At present there are 10 kits: • For ages 3 to 5: ABCs, 123s, Transportation, Opposites, Colours, and Farms; • For ages 6 to 8: Insects, Dinosaurs, Space, Oceans, Fun and Games. Admaston-Bromley librarian Wouda says: “I have a vision for our library, one that will see our library become an even more vibrant space for families to learn, laugh and grow. The Books to Go program will not only encourage children’s literacy, but literacy for the whole family.” Expressing her delight at the naming of AdmastonBromley Public Library as a Sarah Badgley Literacy Grant recipient, ABPL board chair Lynn Agnew praised librarian Wouda for all her hard work in creating the Books to Go firstname.lastname@example.org concept and writing the grant application. “The Admas- NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING has staying power. ton-Bromley Public Library is a small library in a closehas selling power! knit community.

Hunters can view the 2013 Hunting Regulations Summary online at www.ontario.ca/hunting. There’s also a wealth of additional information available there as well including links to Wildlife Management Unit (WMU) maps. The WMUs that fall within Pembroke District have the same boundaries as the County of Renfrew, “We also ask hunters to complete and submit and any hunter questionnaires they receive throughout the season,” says Darwin Rosiem, MNR area supervisor. These questionnaires can either be submitted by mail or online at www. ontario.ca/harvestreporting. All the information hunters provide is important and is used to help: • monitor and sustain wildlife populations, • set harvest quotas and determine availability of additional game seals • develop regulation proposals such as changes to seasons and bag limits, and • inform management policies. Anyone interested in hunting for the first time must first complete the mandatory Ontario Hunter Education course. The Ontario Hunter Education Program (OHEP) is administered by the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources in partnership with the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters. Information on OHEP is available online at www.ohep.net or by contacting the OHEP administrator at 705-748-5785. Following are the big game seasons for our area, broken down by

From left are Chamber general manager Cindy Andrews, Gallant, Chamber president Rob Campbell and Chamber first vice-president Arlene Jamieson. Support came through the Federal Development Agency for Southern Ontario (FedDev Ontario) and administered by the Community Futures Development Corporation serving Renfrew County.

Renfrew Ontario Police on scene of Renfrew break-and-enter News - On Oct. 5 between midnight and 8 a.m. unknown persons entered an unlocked residence on Quarry Avenue in Renfrew. Inside the home several sets of keys were stolen, as well as an iPhone and change. A vehicle in the driveway was entered as well.

Upon his arrest a quantity of crack cocaine was seized. As a result, a 15-year-old male from Renfrew was charged with two counts of theft under $5,000, obstructing police, pos-
session of stolen property, and possession of a schedule 1 drug for the purpose of trafficking. He was released on a youth promise to appear in court in Renfrew on Nov. 25. Under provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act he cannot be identified. Also charged was a 28-year-old Horton Township man with trespassing at night, possession of stolen property, attempting to commit an indictable offence, and having open liquor in a public place. He was released on a promise to appear in court in Renfrew Nov. 27. Const. Jason Cholette, Ryan Besner and Hayley Chaplin investigated.

Letâ€™s talk about death EDITORIAL
udging by the sad state of our provinceâ€™s palliative care system, itâ€™s time to have a conversation about death. The statistics are frightening. According to the Canadian Palliative Care Association, most Canadians would prefer to die in a homebased setting, yet nearly 75 per cent of all deaths occur in a hospital. Only 16 to 36 per cent of Canadians have access to hospice palliative care depending on where they live. The situation will only become worse over time, with the seniorsâ€™ population expected to double by 2036. Meanwhile, people are living longer, giving them time to develop more chronic diseases. Unfortunately, Ontarioâ€™s residential hospices are struggling to stay afloat, with a funding model that relies primarily on charitable donations. The Ontario government only started providing financial support for hospices during the past decade, leaving the responsibility of keeping them running to volunteers and community groups. After sustained lobbying from palliative care agencies, the federal government finally took action, providing $3 million in one-time funding for the Canadian Palliative Care Association to develop a plan to deliver quality end-of-life care
across the country. The 2012-15 initiative advises provincial governments to have a clear policy on palliative care that promotes access and integrated delivery of services together with the necessary funding. But based on a recent interview with Ontario Health Minister Deb Matthews, weâ€™re not confident that approach is even on her radar. The minister was recently in town for the opening of the Ottawa Birth and Wellness Centre, promoting it as a way to provide less-costly and sometimes more appropriate options for expectant mothers. But when asked if she saw a parallel with using a similar cost-efficient model to offer non-medical care at a hospice, Matthews said sheâ€™d â€œhave to think about that a little bit,â€? adding hospices will always be partially funded by communities, because itâ€™s the communities who want them there. But the minister is not the only one guilty of avoiding a serious conversation about death. We all need to start talking about the state of our provinceâ€™s palliative care system and the options available for quality palliative care. Individually, everyone should prepare an advance care plan, directing their care in the event of a life-threatening illness. Collectively, we must force this on the legislative agenda at Queenâ€™s Park. As it stands, today is not a good day to die.
Heigh ho, the dairy-o, a hunting we will go Opinion - With Thanksgiving weekend in the rear view mirror, the focus in much of Renfrew County turns to hunting. There are social as well as economic benefits to the traditional big game hunt. A tremendous sense of community revolves around the annual moose and deer hunt, which is also an important wildlife management tool and part of this regionâ€™s rich rural heritage. According to the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters, â€œHunting is part of the cultural fabric of Canada. Our nation was founded on the opportunities that hunting, fishing and trapping afforded our ancestors and indigenous peoples. â€œEven today, recreational hunting activities contribute billions of dollars to the provincial economy every year.â€? The OFAH website also says anglers and hunters were among North Americaâ€™s first conservationists and have been helping to shape fish and wildlife conservation management for more than a century. There are nearly 450,000 trained and licensed hunters in Ontario and every year about 20,000 people complete the Ontario Hunter Education Program (OHEP) delivered by the

LUCY HASS View from The â€˜Frew OFAH for the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources. The economic impact is also clear, not only in the blaze-orange lineups at lcoal groceries stores in the days before the hunt begins, but in documentation, as well. In 2002 the Animal Use Issues Committee of the International Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies issued a report titled Economic Importance of Hunting in America. â€œHunting in America is big business, generating more than $67 billion in economic output and more than one million jobs in the United States,â€? the report says. â€œThe vast majority of Americans embrace hunting lock, stock and barrel for its social,

cultural and conservation contributions.â€? Hunters spend money on supplies, groceries, gas and more. And every dollar they spend matters in an economy that needs every boost it can get. And in a world filled with factory farms and over-processed foods, what could be finer that catching your own supper? Itâ€™s tough to top the taste of a fish caught fresh out of local waters, but this past spring I was reminded of the culinary benefits of big game hunting. During a fishing trip in Algonquin Park this past spring I enjoyed what is undoubtedly one of the finest meals ever â€“ moose neck roast, slow cooked in onion soup mix. When it came time to divvy up the weekâ€™s leftovers, I quickly called first dibs on the moose. While not everyone supports the concept of hunting, thereâ€™s a generally quiet respect for those who do. A love of hunting knows no boundaries. It attracts men and women, young and old, rich and poor, Conservative, Liberal and NDP alike. There are no religious or ethnic divisions. For that alone, hunting is a national treasure.

In support of Fertile Future Val Trotter of Calabogie sells raffle tickets at the Bogie Artsfest for an impressive folding toy castle made by her husband, Don. All proceeds are going to the Jennifer Berrigan Memorial Fund for the Fertile Future organization, which helps cancer survivors deal with fertility issues. The cause is dear to Trotter’s heart, as Berrigan, an active supporter and director of the organization prior to her death last year at the age of 30, was the fiancée of her son Derek Gallagher of Renfrew. Fertile Future is holding a major fundraiser Nov. 4 in Ottawa featuring Rick Mercer, Gord Downie, Randy Bachman and Serena Ryder. Trotter has displayed the castle doll-house at Calabogie Highlands, Mountain Creek Golf Course and the Renfrew TD Bank, and is looking for other spots to sell tickets prior to the draw in November.

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 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.
For more information about breast cancer prevention, early detection and support for a cure, please visit the National Breast Cancer Foundation online at www.nationalbreastcancer.org. In recognition of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, these sponsors have voiced their support for a cure through donations to Name Breast Cancer Awareness Organization. We thank them for taking action in the fight for a cure.

On Sept. 28, we held our first ever Fill The Jeep event alongside a barbecue and 50-50 draw where we encouraged the people of Renfrew County to bring their returns and â€˜Fill The Jeepâ€™ at Pet Valu in Renfrew.

Toastmasters enjoy autumn
If you were out enjoying the sunny fall weekend you probably missed an equally colourful show at the Petawawa Library Sept. 28. The Toastmasters’ Humorous Speech and Evaluation Contests took place at the library and brought speaking experts from Ottawa and across the Ottawa Valley. The Area 10, Division B, District 61 competitors battled for linguistic glory resulting in an afternoon of fun, food and entertainment for all who attended. Entries included speeches from Area 10 clubs including Arnprior, Renfrew, Pembroke and Deep River chapters. Top three humorous speech wins went to Deep River’s Ed Nicolson in third, Pembroke’s Fran Watson in second and Renfrew club member Tracy Franken for ﬁrst place. Laughs rolled throughout the afternoon with top three speech topics covering senior follies, the trouble with terrible days and turning forty. Test speeches in French and English for the evaluation contest were worthy of competition themselves. However, speakers Francine Fortin and
Ottawa’s Scott McLaughlin were not on the roster this time. First place in the evaluation contest went to Valley Vintage Advanced Club’s Lynne Zander. Fran Watson, Distinguished Toastmaster and second-place winner in both humorous speech and evaluation contests, shared insights into why Toastmasters is a wonderful way to bolster communication skills. “Toastmasters meetings are full of fun and fellowship as well as encouragement for new and advanced speakers as they participate in impromptu speaking activities and various meeting roles,” said Watson. “Everyone learns something they can use in their daily lives, whether they are a business person, someone working in retail or a stay-athome mom or dad.” As is often the case at Toastmasters events, the afternoon proved to be one of inspiration and fellowship as speakers rose to teach, entertain and inspire attendees through spoken word. Winners of the competition go on to compete in the Division B Contest in Ottawa at the Ottawa Citizen Build-
ing on Saturday, Oct. 5 from 9 a.m. to noon. Toastmasters International is a non-proﬁt organization that helps individuals foster communication and leadership skills through public speaking.

Wainwright at Neat next Tuesday Events - Canadian-born singer Martha Wainwright, who comes from a family of musical royalty, will be visiting Burnstown to perform at the Neat Coffee Shop Oct. 22. Family members include her mother, Kate McGarrigle, and her brother, Rufus Wainwright. Kate, who’s a member of the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame, died of a rare form of cancer, sarcoma, in 2010. After her death, Rufus and Martha and Kate’s sister and musical partner Anna McGarrigle led tribute concerts in London, Toronto and New York. Martha, who divides her residential time between London, New York and Montreal, is returning to Canada to support her critically-acclaimed record Come Home To Mama. The album, which was released October 2012 after being recorded predominately at Sean Lennon’s New York City Home, was produced by Yuka Honda (Cibo Matto, Yoko Ono and Sean Lennon). “This record is a culmination of my life experiences so far. Everything changed for me a couple of years ago
and this record is a representation of that and a return to the reason I started writing songs.” Martha continued, “I’ve made this record as a motherless child and as a mother. Two things I had never been before. For me, it is a new beginning. The record has the passionate angst of her previous efforts as well as the crafty pop of I Know Your Married But I’ve Got Feelings Too. Fans were delighted to see Martha take on a small role as a performer in Martin Scorsese’s hit film, The Aviator, which starred Leonardo Dicaprio in 2007, and have supported her efforts in raising awareness of HIV and AIDS around the world. She has also recorded songs with Propellerheads and various other female artists, including British rocker Annie Lennox, to lend her support to these issues. Having worked with Snow Patrol, Pete Townshend, Donald Fagen and Courtney Love (lead singer for the Hole rock band), Martha is known for incredibly-moving shows.

Barry Brown at Country Harvest show Jeff Maguire
Special to The Mercury
Events - A member of one of Canada’s all-time favourite country music groups, the award-winning Family Brown, will headline the fifth annual Country Harvest Music Show in Carleton Place on Sunday, Oct. 20. Barry Brown, who along with his late father Joe and sisters Lawanda and Tracey formed the nucleus of a band which performed together for more than two decades, will bring his original songs and strong singing voice to this year’s much anticipated concert at the Carleton Place arena. “Papa Joe” Brown died in 1986 and the band gave its final performance in 1990. In 1997 the Family

Critically-acclaimed artist back new with album, Tin Star Events - Tin Star, the latest album from critically lauded singer-songwriter Lindi Ortega, was recently released by Last Gang Records. Oct. 27 Ortega will perform at the Neat Coffee Shop in Burnstown. The new record follows her 2011 Juno Award-nominated and Polaris Music Prize Long-Listed debut album Little Red Boots, and her 2012 Polaris Long-Listed album Cigarettes & Truckstops. Billboard called Cigarettes and Truckstops “heartfelt and mood-inducing, a uniquely bluesy twist on pre-outlaw country” while The New York Times praised Ortega for having “untamed instincts, but classic bones.” Tin Star’s title track is streaming now on Paste Magazine, and fans can catch Ortega on
“I don’t want to risk making the same record over and over. “Working with a new group brings a new spirit and new ideas to the music.,” says Ortega. Several songs on the album touch on the classics of country music. Loneliness, unrequited love, crumbling relationships and primal desire pepper Tin Star and give Ortega a chance to let her contemporary twist on traditional country shine through. Hard As This, one of the standout tracks from the album, speaks to difficult relationships, how they often seem to be more trouble than they’re worth, and the feeling of giving all you have and it still not being enough. While I Want You takes the dark undertones that Ortega’s music is known for and explores
stage in Canada this fall. Tin Star can be preordered on iTunes and at her online shop. Produced by Grammy-nominated Dave Cobb (Secret Sisters, Shooter Jennings), Tin Star demonstrates the unique voice and songwriting that Ortega has come to be known for and is largely inspired by Ortega’s adopted home of Nashville, TN. Born and bred in Toronto, Ortega made the move to Music City to be closer to the musicians who inspired her. “It’s always my goal to raise the bar with each record I put out. “I have witnessed so much talent living in Nashville that has inspired me to push myself even further,” she explains. “I like to work with different musicians and producers to change the feel of every release.
the dark side of desire and the need to be bad to get what you want. The past few years have found Ortega nearly constantly on the road supporting both Little Red Boots and Cigarettes & Truckstops. She has toured with the likes of Dierks Bentley, Brandon Flowers of The Killers, K.D. Lang, Social Distortion and James Vincent McMorrow. Of her live performance The Chicago Sun Times notes “[her] ebullient personality and powerful voice make for a striking presence,” while Country Weekly goes on to say, “It’s her penetrating and tremulous voice you’ll remember the most.” Whether the stars she’s imagining are in the night sky or made of tin hanging on an old barn door, Ortega is painting a picture of a career continually on the rise.

Festival Hall hosts An Acoustic Night of Triumph and more Rick Wharton
Festival Hall Centre for the Arts
Events - Rik Emmett was a relatively unknown singer/songwriter/ guitarist on the local Toronto scene in September 1975 when he joined a newly-formed hard rock trio called Triumph. By 1979 three albums had gone platinum in Canada and two charted in the United States, receiving serious radio airplay. By 1981 Triumph was firmly established as one of the premier touring rock acts in North America, with generous FM radio airplay support and heavy rotation on the fledgling MTV cable channel. In the next seven years, the band released ten gold albums, with four turning platinum in Canada. In the U.S., two went gold. Emmett’s name frequently appeared in guitar magazine polls and he won several prestigious awards, including Best Lead Guitarist nationally in 1981. He left the band to begin a solo career in ’88, but as one of the band’s original members, was inducted into the Canadian Rock Hall of Fame in ’93, the Music Industry Hall of Fame in 2007, and the Junos Hall of Fame in 2008. Triumph reunited for concerts in Sweden and Oklahoma in the summer of 2008. A duo project with Dave Dunlop called Strung-Out Troubadours won both Duo Of The Year and Album of the Year honours at the 2007 Canadian Smooth Jazz Awards. The follow-up CD, Push & Pull, was released in the late spring of 2009. In the fall of 2009, the debut CD of an acoustic guitar trio (the P.R.O. Trio) with Pavlo and Oscar Lopez, Trifecta, was released, in advance of the heaviest Canadian touring schedule that Emmett has been involved in
was no surprise to fans who knew the guy who constantly plugged trademark classical guitar pieces or little jazz tunes in between hard rock anthems, arena blues riffs and progressive flourishes found on past records. A singer/songwriter album called Spiral Notebook followed in 1995, earning airplay on its ballads Let Me Be The One and The Longing. In 1996, Emmett began testing the courage of his musical convictions with work in his own digital studio and through his own independent record label. These instincts paid off artistically. The first release was Ten Invitations from the Mistress of Mr E., original instrumentals of classical nylon-string guitar. Critics and fans were reminded that the rock “guitar god” was not a one-trick pony. Part two of his guitar trilogy, Swing Shift, took a completely different musical direction, featuring jazz, swing and fusion. Again, the CD was well received, with the emergence of the song Santa Fe Horizon as a classic staple in the
since the 1980s, commencing in January of 2010 and continuing throughout the year. Emmett’s solo career spawned three releases for Duke Street/MCA Records in the early 1990s. The first, Absolutely, went gold in 1990, yielding the hits Saved by Love and Big Lie, two songs that provided a transition from arena rock while maintaining continuity at FM radio. The ballad When a Heart Breaks crossed a rock guitar hero over into other radio formats and revealed a more sensitive singer/songwriter persona. World of Wonder also received substantial airplay and showcased an expanding lyrical and stylistic range. The Ipso Facto CD followed in 1992, offering up the hits Out of The Blue (a jazzy-bluesy tribute to Stevie Ray Vaughan, Hendrix and Wes Montgomery) and Bang On, a rocking return to one of Rik’s personal themes – positive motivation and inspiration. Ipso Facto’s stylistic versatility

constantly on display – from smooth jazz and fingerstyle guitar festivals in Canada to heavy metal festivals in Germany and Sweden: from Artistic Directing a songwriting workshop to jamming with Alex Lifeson of Rush at the Guitar Workshop Plus: from huge classic rock outdoor shows with Triumph, to intimate acoustic duo gigs: from nights honouring the song catalogue of Eric Clapton, or The Beatles: through to releases like 2007?s hard rocking Liberty Manifesto, or the all-acoustic Live at Hugh’s Room, released in the same year. Emmett’s tour and CD with P.R.O. Trio (Pavlo, Rik, Oscar Lopez),was a big hit, with its unique blend of Rik’s favourite acoustic styles worked into Mediterranean and Latin contexts. A guitar magazine once wrote that Rik Emmett was “… his own worst enemy. He’s one of the only guitarists out there who may be too talented for his own damn good.” In a tabloid/sound bite world, the comment offers insight on a 21-year solo career, recognizing a unique artist still going strong based on being a loyal friend to his gifts instead of a slave to fashion with luggage to match. Rik Emmett’s latest releases are Marco’s Secret Songbook and Then Again … Acoustic Selections from Triumph. He holds true to his dreams of the magic power of the music, and shares that with every audience, of every stripe, every night that he performs.

smooth jazz field, capturing the interest of brand-new fans in growing musical circles. The spirits of diehard core fans were elevated by witnessing an artistic transformation that defied mainstream classification. Raw Quartet, released in early 1999, became the final CD in the trilogy, displaying Emmett’s passion and natural affinity for blues. Live at Berklee (highlights from sold out shows at the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston) was followed by a traditional Spirit of Christmas album, recorded in collaboration with Glass Tiger keyboardist Sam Reid. One of the big thrills in Emmett’s lifetime occurred in the summer of 2001, when George Benson joined him on stage during a guitar festival in Buffalo NY and they brought the house down with an impromptu version of On Broadway. 2002 brought the release of a 20th Century Masters: Best of Rik Emmett Collection through Universal, followed by another widely-acclaimed instrumental smooth jazz masterpiece CD, Handiwork. In the late summer of 2003, the acoustic singer/songwriter reemerged with the Good Faith CD, another new chapter in an already storied career. In 2005, Rik was honored as Guitarist of the Year at the Canadian Smooth Jazz Awards, but the wide range of Emmett’s abilities have been

Rookies Rock program Sunday afternoons at the Renfrew Curling Rink Andy Sklepowicz Behind the Glass
Sports - Besides the start of curling, two news items have dominated the club recently, one that has just occurred and the other coming up.

everything well organized as usual and everyone had a great time. Two superb meals were enjoyed, prizes picked up, the hardware presented and friendship abounded. Somehow the Gus Woito team with Sandy Campbell, and Amy, Matt and Phil Ciphery found themselves on top, although anyone having seen Gus golf or curl may question those results. A huge thank-you to the kitchen crew who outdid themselves, led by chefs Yvonne Sklepowicz and Nancy Con-
Permits: $180 From page 25
“The $180 Nov. 1 option for the 2014 season represents a 30 per cent saving off the regular seasonal fee of $260, providing Ontario snowmobilers with exceptional value for the coming winter,” said OFSC president Brenda Welsh. “It’s our way of saying ‘thank-you’ to loyal buyers for their support and to welcome them back to OFSC trails this season.” The OFSC is confident that the $180-Nov. 1 permit option will also provide a significant incentive for new participants and former riders to discover the fun of today’s snowmobiling for themselves this winter. Available this season on or before Nov. 1, the $180 permit is a transitional step and part of a major, ongoing review of its business model for trail operations by the OFSC. At their recent

The new plan outlines a comprehensive direction, including more permit types with varied fees, allocating more money where it snows each winter, and promoting more efficient trail operations across the province. “Like many others, the snowmobiling industry was impacted by the global economic downturn following 2008. That’s why the OFSC continues to explore alternatives for doing business smarter and more effectively,” said OFSC executive director Paul Shaughnessy. “We also think it’s important to keep snowmobiling as accessible as possible for Ontario families as well as for visitors from outside the province. So we’re working on a variety of other enhancements for consideration at our 2014 AGM next September, but now, at least for the coming season, our customers have a new permit choice.”

Jaguars stun Arnprior in senior girls hoops encounter Peter Clark
Sports - The St. Joseph’s Jaguars turned in a big effort en route to a convincing 43-27 win over the visiting Arnprior Redmen in Upper Ottawa Valley High School Athletic Association senior girls basketball
Thursday. Sonya Bergin paced St. Joseph’s with 20 points, and in the game within the game, outscored her Arnprior top-scoring counterpart 20-13. Jocelyn Virgin added 10 before the home crowd. Included was a big turn-around for the Jaguars in the third quarter.
A seemingly healthy St. Joseph’s lead was trimmed to 17-16 when, in a matter of moments, Virgin drained a threepoint shot, got fouled on a successful layup, and then made the free throw to suddenly give the Jaguars a 23-16 advantage.
Coaches Mike McMahon and Jeff Halk said the entire team leaned toward defence to help produce the upset. Arnprior scored a 36-21 triumph over the Jaguars in the junior contest. Hannah Robertson and Taylor Sul were leading point getters for St. Joseph’s.

www.cherylgallant.com As preparations for the fall sitting of Parliament are underway, Women’s History Month 2013 is being celebrated. The theme for 2013 is Canadian Women Pioneers: Inspiring Change Through Ongoing Leadership. During the month of October, the Government of Canada will be highlighting women’s participation and leadership in various fields, including science and technology, engineering and trades, business and entrepreneurs, natural resources, medicine and medical research. As Canada’s women pioneers are being profiled this year, the Government is hoping to inspire young women across the country with their stories – who they are, what they have done, and the paths they followed to success. Another goal of this year’s theme there is to encourage women to pursue careers in all fields, including the fields of science, technology and trades, and in non-traditional sectors such as natural resources and construction. We believe that it is important to educate Canadians about the tremendous accomplishments made by women throughout our history. Women are an untapped resource that will help close the skills gap in Canada, allowing us to grow and diversify our national economy, and create new jobs, growth and prosperity in our communities. Since 1992, the Government of Canada has designated October as Women’s History Month to celebrate the contributions of women, past and present, who have helped shape our nation. October was selected so to include the commemoration of the “Persons Case”, when on October 18, 1929, women were first legally recognized as “persons” under Canadian law. Locally we pay tribute to women such as Karen Robertson of Arnprior, Joanne Camelon of White Lake, and Sharon Ladoceur of Calabogie. Karen has given years of altruistic effort for the Arnprior Downtown Business Improvement Association, while Joanne has worked tirelessly every year to promote the annual White Lake summer garage sale, a sale which attracts thousands of people to White Lake. Sharon Ladoceur is a dedicated volunteer in the Calabogie area, who visits those who are ill and frequently assists at her church and within the Community. R0012395000
Sports - The Renfrew Collegiate Raiders picked up a pair of timely Upper Ottawa Valley Athletic Association girls basketball victories over the visiting Mackenzie Mustangs Oct. 10 at the Grant Gymnasium. Andrea Martin led the junior girls with 17 points in a 47-18 triumph. Amanda Tubman dropped home
Coun. McKay’s only disappointment was the lack of children present at the day’s event. “It’s too bad there were no children that came. Maybe we can get on that part of it through recreation, once it (regular pickle ball action) starts up,” she said. She’s targeting some time in October as the start of the pickle ball season in Calabogie. Those that were at the Sept. 14 event got a clear understanding of how to play the game, Coun. McKay added.
Metcalfe tops ringette UOV Bulldogs
Sports - The Upper Ottawa Valley Tween B under 14 Bulldogs dropped a pair of close decisions to Metcalfe in the National Capital Region Ringette League.

Erica Mosseau notched the lone UOV marker in the first game, and later led her team with a hat trick in game two. Megan Bennett supplied the other two Upper Ottawa Valley markers. eight points to help push the Senior Raiders past the Deep River squad 32-28. The Raiders were also winners on the senior boys volleyball court. RCI turned back the Jeanne-Lajoie Chevaliers 3-1 at the Grant Gymnasium Oct. 7.
