Renfrew opens storage facility for CFB Petawawa’s Chinooks Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

A $1-million investment by the Renfrew Industrial Commission and the Town of Renfrew is bringing big business to town. Raytheon Canada, which provides support services for high-technology systems, has opened satellite operations in Renfrew, from where it will service the Chinook helicopter squadron coming to Canadian Forces Base Petawawa next year. The official ribbon-cutting for the Raytheon facility at Renfrewʼs Innovation Centre on OʼBrien Road was held Tuesday, as representatives gathered from Raytheon Canada, Boeing, the Town of Renfrew and the Renfrew Industrial Commission. A seven-year lease agreement is in place for Raytheon to operate out of the facility that includes 30,000 square feet of storage space for helicopter parts. Renfrew wasnʼt the only site considered for the job, but it won out after the Renfrew Industrial Commission committed around $1 million

to upgrade and customize the multi-business storage building. This met military and security standards, and brought the former Westinghouse home up to building code. Renfrew Industrial Commission executive director Dave Lemkay indicated the lease includes the option for three five-year leases. An estimated two dozen jobs will be created at the Renfrew office. “I think itʼs good to see a major national and international company do business in our community,” said Renfrew Mayor Bill Ringrose. “In my mind, thatʼs going to be 20 years plus. This will definitely pay dividends for the Town of Renfrew.” “To all our vendors and suppliers, I understand parts are on the way, so it will be very exciting to see a warehouse full of equipment,” said Terry Manion, general manager of Raytheon Canadaʼs support services division. Manion also noted that the companyʼs estimated 1,500 employees are located in Alberta, Ontario (including the corporate headquarters in Ottawa) and Nova Scotia See RAYTHEON, page 6

Renfrew, Arnprior OPP to merge? Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

The Renfrew and Arnprior detachments of the Ontario Provincial Police could amalgamate in 2013. At the Nov. 5 meeting of the local Community Police Advisory Council, Horton councillor Glen Campbell said he was told the proposal could be realized as early as January 2013. “Efficiencies are one of our goals within the organization,” Staff-Sgt. Colin Slight, commander of the Renfrew OPP, told The Renfrew Mercury EMC. “At this point in time weʼre looking for efficiencies and cost-saving measures, and amal-

gamation of detachments is one of the things being looked at.” Slight stressed that no final decision has been made, but that if the amalgamation does happen it would likely occur in 2013. The number of officer and civilian employees is about 45 in the Renfrew detachment and about 15 in Arnprior, says Staff-Sgt. Slight. At present, the Arnprior detachment polices the Town of Arnprior, while the Renfrew detachment is responsible for policing in Renfrew, and the townships of Greater Madawaska, McNab-Braeside, Admaston-Bromley, Horton and about half of Whitewater Region Township.

The Ontario Provincial Police is investigating a suspicious death, after the Renfrew detachment of the OPP responded to a call about 3:30 p.m. Sunday. The call concerned the discovery of human remains in a wooded area of Greater Mada-

waska Township, near Norton Road, just north of Calabogie. Ontario Provincial Police sources arenʼt saying how long the person had been dead. But itʼs apparently a significant period, since the police were unable to identify the body as male or female.

Important ‘pittance of time’ given at St. Michael’s School Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

Take two minutes, would you mind? It’s a pittance of time For the boys and the girls who went over, In peace may they rest, may we never forget why they died. It’s a pittance of time. There were songs, poems, poppies, memories and tears as students, staff and residents remembered those who have served, and do serve, so that Canada might be free. Wreaths were laid at the municipal cenotaph, outside St. Michaelʼs Catholic School, before Kevin OʼGorman of the Royal Canadian Legionʼs Cobden branch emceed his 15th Admaston-Bromley Remembrance Day service inside the Douglas school last Friday. Several references were made to the importance of remembering, including the above words sung by the St. Michaelʼs Choir from Terry Kellyʼs song, A Pittance of Time. An emotional MPP John Yakabuski took a lengthy, tearful pause, as one of the two guest speakers. The pause came after asking the audience to honour those who didnʼt survive military service and to thank those who are still with us after serving in military conflicts. Regaining his composure, he said, “Those who are still with us, do not let an opportunity pass by to thank them … so make that pledge to never forget.” These services are emotional for him, said the MPP, because he is reminded that “I have done nothing to earn the peace, to earn the freedom, to earn that liberty, to earn the rights” that he enjoys as a Canadian citizen. The other guest speaker was Admaston-Bromley Mayor Raye-Anne Briscoe. “Today,” she said, “is a day that we gather in our country and in countries around the world to remember. We are here to remember those

“War, ladies and gentlemen, is a three-letter word. But war has a face; war is brothers, war is sisters, war is moms and dads, grandmas and grandpas, aunts and uncles, neighbours. Thatʼs

war, and we need to understand and remember that and honour that.” In remembering, though, said Briscoe, we have to do more than attend a Remembrance Day ceremony. As a small way of remembering, she indicated that the Admaston-Bromley municipal staff have honoured every Red Friday, in salute to the Canadian military, for six years. Repeating herself, she emphasized, “That means that always, and always, our soldiers are in our mindset.”

For the girls and boys attending the service, Briscoe asked that their challenge be their efforts to ensure more wars donʼt happen. In the closing prayer, Rev. Patricia VanGelder thanked God for the gift of memory and other gifts, like “the rituals and songs and stories that help to keep Remembrance Day alive in our minds and hearts.” She also prayed: “May this new year be our new step, our commitment to the future, where we can remember war as part of our distant past and not part of our current reality.”

Pilot Louis Brown remembered Small-sized classes for on Kingston’s new memorial wall Special to The Mercury

In 1921, both the City of Kingston and the surrounding County of Frontenac dedicated plaques to their Great War dead. But the list of names was very incomplete. In the case of the city, only names already on church and civic plaques were included. During research for a 2008 book, Kingston Volunteers: The Thing To Do, I found about 150 who were omitted. After the Second World War, the city sponsored a beautiful hand-written book which is kept locked in Memorial Hall. They also built an arena dedicated to the fallen, but without giving any names. In the early 2000s, the city decided to improve the area around Memorial Arena, and to include a memorial park. In the park would be a memorial wall with the names of all who were born, lived or worked in Kingston and area. I was asked to find those names and the result has been an interesting journey into the past. By viewing all known plaques and memorials (not always in the public eye), by reading the newspapers through the two wars, and by trolling various websites, I found 1,022 names. The first death was in South Africa in 1900. The last is of an Afghanistan veteran in 2009. Among the difficulties were

names incorrectly spelled, or people who used their second forename. Thus I found Louis Brown on the Regiopolis College scroll, but I had no idea who he was. Then I found that the Whig Standard of June 2, 1941 notes that he was killed in the Royal Air Force, and that his father was Dr. Brown of Renfrew. MERCURY’S ASSISTANCE

An email to The Renfrew Mercury was replied to almost immediately, and within a day Renfrew resident Bill Welsh told me that Louis was lost on patrol over the North Sea. This told me he would be memorialized on the Runnymede Memorial, which commemorates by name 20,327 airmen who were lost in the United Kingdom and North and Western Europe, and who have no known grave. Another search found him under his full legal name: Walter Louis Brown. Few of those who still remember him knew about the Walter! And so, on the windy and drizzly afternoon of Oct. 30, 2012, with the remnants of Storm Sandy blowing us around, we unveiled the Memorial Wall with its 1,022 names – and Louis Brownʼs among them. There were veterans who had come to see their fellow soldiers remembered. There were family members who

2 The Renfrew Mercury EMC - Thursday, November 15, 2012

had come to see the names of fathers and grandfathers. But perhaps none was more proud and sad than Louisʼs sister, 91-year-old Teresa Morris of Peterborough, and other members of the family. There were tears in her eyes as she touched his name. It was a fitting end to a long journey for me, discovering and rediscovering names long forgotten, and commemorating them all for what they sacrificed for Canada. Louis Brown, whom most people in the Renfrew area knew as Louie, was one of six children of Dr. Walter Brown and wife Eulalia. Louis grew up in Douglas and Renfrew and spent summers in Lake Dore. He was also a student at Regiopolis College in Kingston (which is now Regiopolis-Notre Dame Catholic High School). Brother James also died overseas, in 1943 while flying a Dakota aircraft during a training exercise in England. Another brother was Joseph, who returned from the war and opened a pharmacy in Cobden. The other siblings were Paulina, Kay and Bliss. —With files from Steve Newman Peter Gower is the compiler of Kingston Volunteers: The Thing To Do. He can be reached at greatwar@sympatico.ca

End of CNâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Beachburg line appears imminent steve.newman@metroland.

One railway down, and one to go. Canadian PaciďŹ cĘźs railway line through Renfrew County is being closed down, with parts being sold or used elsewhere in the railway business. And the same could be happening to the Canadian NationalĘźs Beachburg subdivision through or near such local towns as Pembroke, Beachburg and Portage-duFort. For the last few years, a working group known as Transport Pontiac Renfrew, hoped to generate a business plan that would help Upper Ottawa Valley businesses (such as Trebio, the successor for the former SmurďŹ t-Stone sawmill in Portage-du-Fort) and provide commuter trafďŹ c between the Upper Ottawa Valley and Ottawa. The federal Ministry of Transportation announced $136,000 of funding toward a feasibility study in December 2009. At that announcement in Portage-du-Fort, Pontiac MP Lawrence Cannon said the study would allow the government to â&#x20AC;&#x153;better plan transport solutions so that families beneďŹ t from quality infrastructure and the regional economy develops, particularly in tourism.â&#x20AC;?

But the railĘźs future wasnĘźt helped when the Cannon, a supporter of the plan, was defeated in the 2011 federal election. Interest in the line remained for a while, but the lack of a buyer for the line appears to have derailed CNĘźs Beachburg subdivision line. SLIM TO NONE

Chances of the line remaining in place for business of any sort are slim to none, suggests Louise Donaldson, a director with Transport Pontiac Renfrew. SheĘźs convinced the federal government could have turned the situation around. The Ministry of Defence, she says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;should be playing a major role because of rail access and the importance of the rail to the military (at Canadian Forces Base Petawawa).â&#x20AC;? CNĘźs proposed discontinuance of the Beachburg line that runs 29.3 miles from Portage-du-Fort to a point near Pembroke, was initiated later this year, following CNĘźs indications in February 2010 that it planned to discontinue the line if it wasnĘźt sold. The asking price for the rail section between Portage-duFort and Pembroke is $12.1 million, an amount CN notes does not exceed the net salvage value of the railway line. The cost of the lower end of line, which is 44.9 miles from

Nepean to Portage-du-Fort, is $21.7 million. A good portion of that section runs through Ottawa councillor Eli El-ChantiryĘźs ward. The CN lineĘźs future doesnĘźt look good, says ElChantiry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The problem weĘźre facing is shortsighted government, whether provincial or federal,â&#x20AC;? he said. Any government who doesnĘźt see the future of the track is obviously shortsighted.â&#x20AC;? However, if the section of the Beachburg line running through his ward doesnĘźt survive, he says the City of Ottawa needs to at least preserve the right-a-way of the rail lineĘźs ďŹ rst 14 kilometres that start at the Walkley rail yard. For the higher end of the Beachburg subdivision, deadlines for the federal government to make an offer expired Oct. 22, 2012. The Quebec and Ontario ministry of transportation deadlines expire Nov. 21, 2012. Deadlines for Renfrew County, the Renfrew County municipalities of Whitewater Region, Laurentian Valley and the City of Pembroke, the Pontiac Region, LitchďŹ eld and Portage-du-Fort are Dec. 21, 2012. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then CN will likely lift the railway for salvage,â&#x20AC;? says Donaldson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Frankly, itĘźs not commuter trafďŹ c, but itĘźs our jobs (in the area) that depend on the rail.â&#x20AC;?

And discontinuance of the CN Beachburg line, said Donaldson, will mean another rural area is going to suffer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nobody has wanted to step up to the plate,â&#x20AC;? said Donaldson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am expecting total gov-

ernment inaction again. I am particularly disgusted by the federal governmentĘźs inaction.â&#x20AC;? The ďŹ nal deadline for the lower portion of the Beachburg line, between Portagedu-Fort and Nepean, is Jan.

21, 2013. One thingĘźs for sure. The County of Renfrew wonĘźt be making a purchase offer on the line in its own backyard, and never suggested it would. See BEACHHBURG, page 5

Ongoing complaints about phone and online scams across Ontario Police services throughout Ontario are receiving complaints of phone and online scams. Fraudsters are busy trying to deceive people in various fashions and steal your money. Victims are generally pressured to provide personal information, banking information, remote access to their computers or to make instant financial decisions. This allows the scammers to commit identity theft, access bank accounts/ investments or fraudulently use credit cards. Here are some tips to protect yourself from fraud:

• Be suspicious of anyone who asks you to provide personal/banking/credit card information to verify your accounts by phone or online. Reputable institutions will already have this information. • If there is a reported problem with your bank, go to the bank in person to resolve the issue. • If your credit cards or bank accounts are involved, notify them can so they can assist you. You can also request that the bank or credit card company send you the information by mail for you to look over. • Be wary of anyone who asks you to send them money. A common scam is for some-

Beachburg line Continued from page 4

Paul Moreau, Renfrew Countyʼs director of development and property, said the county wants to see the railway stay, but that the county is not in the railway business, and not in position to buy such assets. “I can tell you,” said Renfrew County Warden Bob Sweet, “we donʼt intend to buy it to run it as a railway. Itʼs not in our mandate, itʼs not in our interest to do so, and we wonʼt be negotiating any options to operate it as a railway.” At least efforts have been made to keep the rail line alive, says Donaldson. We tried to get the charitable donation to work,” she said, alluding to participating municipalitiesʼ who agreed to issue tax receipts to Canadian National if the land and rail assets were donated. “CN suggested we look at a charitable donation, which we investigated at great lengths. We knew the municipalities couldnʼt afford it, but if they were supported by the federal government and both provincial governments, it

one to call you, claiming to be a member of your family in a crisis and in need of money. This type of scam is commonly used to target elderly persons. Check with your other family members before you send anyone money. • Watch out for callers promoting free trips or promising huge financial gain. There is no such thing as something for nothing. How can you win a prize if you didnʼt buy a ticket? There may be hidden fees that make the trip cost more than it normally would be. • Resist pressure to act immediately. Many scammers apply pressure to act on “limited time offers” that are pre-

When it is suggested there arenʼt any potential buyers for the Beachburg subdivision, Donaldson replies: “Private money, no. Several organizations have interesting ideas, but they involve somebody elseʼs money.” Donaldson emphasizes, however, that TPR isnʼt done yet, as far as the Beachburg line is concerned. “Weʼre engaged in strategy on three fronts. I canʼt talk about them, but the vision is now longer-term. We may have to shift the strategy and go back to baby steps. But the line isnʼt done yet.” If the railway does leave Renfrew County and the Pontiac, Warden Sweet says that will absolutely add pressure for the need to expand the four-lane Highway 417 across the county. At this point, 417 has only extended a few kilometres past the Arnprior exit. And the next phase isnʼt even part of Ontarioʼs next fiveyear capital plan.

Its support services division opened in Calgary in 1992 to support the CF18 radar program. Since then the division has expanded to provide in-service support for high-technology systems. Many of these air, land or sea systems are related to defence, homeland security and other government markets. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are known as the inservice support centre of excellence,â&#x20AC;? added Manion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Among the many and varied tasks we perform daily, in support of our customer, we take extreme pride in getting supplies where they need to be when they need to be there.

How about a hair cut or an oil change this Christmas?

T

he Renfrew Mercury EMC is all about community. Your community. So when two residents forwarded us an email last week that struck them as being one heck of a good message, we listened. The email encourages the birth of a new tradition this Christmas, one that moves beyond mass-produced gifts that ďŹ&#x201A;ood into Canada to serve our nagging need for more â&#x20AC;&#x153;stuff.â&#x20AC;? The movement it promotes is all about showing concern

for fellow Canadians who provide day-to-day services by giving gift certiďŹ cates for everything from hair cuts and car detailing to gym memberships or breakfast at a local restaurant. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Remember, folks,â&#x20AC;? the email says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This isnĘźt about big national chains. This is about supporting your hometown Canadian, with their ďŹ nancial lives on the line, to keep the doors open.â&#x20AC;? The possibilities are many. Lawn mowing. Driveway snow ploughing. An oil

change. Local hand-made crafts. The services of a local cleaning lady for one day. If youĘźre looking for ideas, The Renfrew Mercury EMC is the best place to start. Every week this newspaper carries the advertising of many small local business to 15,500 doorsteps. The actual author of the new-tradition email is unidentiďŹ ed, but he or she encourages recipients to spread the message far and wide. ItĘźs a clear effort to tap into grassroots support and create

a groundswell of awareness about the power of Buy Local initiatives. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we care about other Canadians, we care about our communities, and the beneďŹ ts come back to us in ways we couldnĘźt imagine,â&#x20AC;? the email says. While the vast majority of unidentiďŹ ed, mass emails arenĘźt worth the time spent opening them, we have stumbled upon a gem. As the author notes, â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a revolution of caring about each other, and isnĘźt that

what Christmas is really all about?â&#x20AC;? WOOD WOULD SUPPORT ECONOMY

In keeping with this theme, we note that Renfrew County has launched a new website that is well worth a look â&#x20AC;&#x201C; www.OttawaValleyWood. com The foresty sector is a treasured part of our rural heritage and is important to future economic development. Now itĘźs easy to source

wood products locally to support the local forest industry and local businesses by checking out the site. County of Renfrew forester Lacey Rose reports the site has been active for about a month now and the response has been very positive. The site features a directory with a search option, and a map showing producers in the area. From ďŹ&#x201A;ooring and furniture to jewelry and grilling planks, wood would be a nice choice this Christmas.

Fall hunt a timeless tradition LUCY HASS View from the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;frew

I

could ďŹ nally see the deer â&#x20AC;&#x201C; two of them. The buck was standing by the shore while the doe dipped its nose into the lake for a drink. There was so much blue sky it was almost distracting, but I focused. Three Canada geese ďŹ&#x201A;ew overhead. My eyes scanned through the carpet of twigs and branches and golden leaves. Slowly, the deer took shape when I found the ďŹ&#x201A;ash of white on their tails. I was suddenly certain this weekendĘźs hunt would be successful. I would indeed ďŹ nish this beautiful jigsaw puzzle of two deer. November is here â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the longest month of all â&#x20AC;&#x201C; when many family and friends head out on the annual hunt. I know IĘźll never be a hunter. The closest IĘźll come will be setting jigsaw puzzles, as I paw through shapes and colours to create order from chaos. Jigsaw puzzles ease me away from my favourite month â&#x20AC;&#x201C; October â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the month of glorious busyness. ItĘźs time to bring in ďŹ rewood, rake leaves, throw on the storm windows, rustle around the garden and put the boats away for another year. This past October was especially memorable, from my ďŹ rst ATV trip with friends to the top of the Pakkotina Trail overlooking Golden Lake, to a Blues Night at the Wilno Tavern that just happened to fall on the 20th anniversary of the Tuesday night tradition. Unlike October, when the Renfrew County landscape glows with majestic colour, dreary old November, with its landscape of dreys and

dark skies, drags on. But jigsaw puzzles make it bearable. And when I need a break from hunting for puzzle pieces, I rummage through my tackle box, dream of ice on the lake and ponder the promise of a new ice ďŹ shing season.

The hunt is an important and respected part of my rural heritage, even though I donĘźt feel the personal urge to ďŹ re a gun. The annual fall harvest is a key economic driver in Renfrew and area; a tradition we should treasure and defend. The fall hunt is an important part of wildlife management, in the same way logging is an important part of forest management. Unfortunately, many of our city neighbours are generations removed from their rural roots and donĘźt always understand country folk. So our elected ofďŹ cials have a special responsibility to be informed and ďŹ ght for the preservation of sound wildlife and forest management. To hunt or not to hunt is all about personal choice. And choice is always best because itĘźs the ultimate declaration of freedom. If we shook our tiresome urge to judge others, we would all be happier. So although IĘźm not a hunter, I can put myself in their blaze orange and boots. I sense the pre-hunt excitement and enjoy the backwoods banter, from hunt camp tales of hits and misses to grocery store observations like the cashier who chuckled, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donĘźt know how much they hunt, but they sure do eat.â&#x20AC;?

A)

HER SMILE WILL BE MISSED

In this solemn season, the community marks the passing of a lovely lady. Linda Jackson, a long-time waitress at FinniganĘźs Roadhouse in Renfrew, passed away last week. Her friendly manner and quick smile brought joy to so many. In a world where shallow celebrity often trumps substance, she exuded real warmth and displayed a strong work ethic worthy of note. Sympathy goes out to her family, friends and all who enjoyed her generous spirit.

Yes, many civil servants get it off, so everyone should get the same consideration. Besides, we need a holiday in November.

Updated economic development site linked to county website Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

The updated County of Renfrew economic development website is now linked directly to the County of Renfrew website. The link on www.countyofrenfrew.ca is via the economic development tab. Alastair Baird, manager of Renfrew County economic development, was scheduled to provide an overview on the new economic development website Oct. 31 before county council. However, a lengthy agenda forced postponement of that presentation until county council meets Nov. 28. A key component of the economic development website is the data and demographics information for each individual municipality and for the county as a whole. This data was assembled by McSweeney and Associates (Ottawa)

and Manifold Data Mining Inc. (Toronto) from Statistics Canada and Canadian Revenue Agency sources. The county pays an annual fee for data updates throughout the year. This data is intended to help municipalities obtain the most current statistical information for its community, for planning and promotional purposes. DESCRIPTION OF RENFREW

Brief descriptions of each Renfrew County municipality appear alongside its coat of arms or logo. For Renfrew, the townʼs description reads: “Less than an hour from Canadaʼs capital, the Town of Renfrew is a beautiful four-season destination with marvelous attractions in town and nearby. “Renfrew is strategically located on the TransCanada Highway, approximately 100 km west of Ottawa, with easy access to Montreal, Toron-

to, Windsor, North Bay and Algonquin Park. It is the commercial hub of the area, serving a rural and small town population base of over 30,000 in Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec. Founded in the early 1800s, the Town of Renfrew is steeped in heritage and tradition.” For the example of another local municipality, Hortonʼs description reads: “Horton Township is situated between the Ottawa River and the Town of Renfrew, 45 minutes west of Kanata. Considered a rural municipality, it has areas of urban population adjacent to Renfrew and along the Ottawa River. “Horton Township has approximately 40 hectares (100 acres) of vacant land pre-zoned commercial and commercial reserve. These lands, situated on provincial Highway 60 and Gillan Road, are awaiting your development. “Both areas are adjacent to the Town of Renfrew and are on major

transportation routes. Horton has untapped recreational potential, with 16 km (10 miles) of Ottawa River waterfront and breathtaking high ridge views overlooking the river and the Province of Quebec. With the anticipated completion of the four lanes to Highway 17, Horton will be within 45 minutes of Silicon Valley North.” A sample from the website is the education section, which provides phone numbers and links to the websites of Algonquin College in the Ottawa Valley and the four publicly-funded school boards — Renfrew County District School Board, Renfrew County Catholic District School Board, Conseil des écoles catholiques de langue française du Centre-Est, and Conseil des écoles publiques de lʼEst de lʼOntario.

Wheels in motion to see if OPP will have new facilility on O’Brien Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

The Renfrew OPP detachment, which has worked with cramped facilities in two different buildings for several years, could have a new, much

more spacious home in 2013. Toronto-based CB Richard Ellis Limited will soon enter into preliminary discussions with the OPP regarding the feasibility of constructing the Renfrew detachment on OʼBrien Road.

If the proposal is approved, Campbell said the OPP would retain its Arnprior office, but administrative personnel would operate out of the

The county-owned property would be on a section of about 30 vacant acres, next to Renfrew County Place at 450 OʼBrien Road. Thatʼs the address of a day care and several county departments, including the Ren-

IF YOU WORK IN ONTARIO, THIS IS YOUR FIGHT. On September 11, 2012, the Ontario Liberal government passed Bill 115, the Putting Students First Act, 2012.

Bill 115 is undemocratic, unconstitutional, and unprecedented. sIt takes away the democratic rights of teachers and education professionals to bargain collectively. sIt places the government beyond the reach of the Ontario Human Rights Code, the Ontario Labour Relations Act, and even the courts. sIt takes local decision-making away from school boards and puts it in the hands of the provincial government. That’s why we’re standing against Bill 115. It sets a dangerous precedent for all Ontarians. In fact, the government has already threatened other public sector workers with similar legislation. As teachers, we teach your children to stand up for their principles. Today, we ask you to do the same.

R0011745432

What can you do to help? Join us in standing up for democratic rights. Let your MPP know that Bill 115 must be repealed.

Chief paramedic Nolan honoured with leadership award steve.newman@metrolaand.com

Renfrew County chief paramedic Mike Nolan is the 2012 recipient of the Richard J. Armstrong Leadership Award. Nolan accepted the award, which is presented annually at the Ontario Association Paramedic Chiefs Conference, Sept. 27. Killaloe, Hagarty and Richards Mayor Janice Visneskie, as the countyĘźs health committee chair, commented about the award during the Oct. 31 session of county council. She attended the ceremony at the Ottawa Conference Centre where Nolan and Visneskie were both pleasantly surprised to hear who the award winner was. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because IĘźve had the pleasure of working with him, as chair of the health committee, IĘźve seen that heĘźs always working for the client,â&#x20AC;? said

Progress made by the countyĘźs paramedic service includes expansion of deployment numbers to decrease 9-11 response time; the advent of a community paramedic model that includes wellness clinics; public access to deďŹ brillators across the county; the establishment of community single-member response units; the introduction of advanced care paramedics to staff; and improvement in the quality of ambulances driven by the paramedic service. The 41-year-old Pakenham resident will receive the QueenĘźs Diamond Jubilee Medal later this month. He has also received a GovernorGeneral award for exemplary service. Nolan has been the countyĘźs chief paramedic since 2005. The Richard J. Armstrong Leadership Award is named

after the founding president of the Ontario Association of Paramedic Chiefs, which was originally called the Association of Municipal Emergency Medical Services of Ontario. The award is in recognition of outstanding leadership and signiďŹ cant contributions to emergency medical services in Ontario. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the greatest recognition is that of your peers who understand the responsibilities of the job,â&#x20AC;?

Hector William Wilson, B/131997, Queen’s Own Rifles of Canada, R.C.I.C and son of Liford and Annie May Wilson, of Renfrew died at age 20 on Feb. 26, 1945. Patry was participating in the Nijmegen March 2012 and took this picture on what would have been the exact day of Hector’s 88th birthday.

Teachers launch work action NOTICE Steve Newman

steve.newman@metroland.com

The Ontario Secondary School TeachersĘź Federation has begun work action after discussions with the provincial government ended without a collective agreement. The OSSTF initiated the work action Monday after the move was postponed for ďŹ ve days, said OSSTF president Ken Coran in a news release. â&#x20AC;&#x153;ItĘźs not work action in the normal sense,â&#x20AC;? said Jeff Barber, a veteran Renfrew Collegiate Institute teacher and Lo-

cal 28 president of the OSSTF. â&#x20AC;&#x153;WeĘźre not outside on the picket line. WeĘźre still sticking, as our (provincial) president said, to the meat and potatoes of our job. WeĘźre focused on the teaching and the planning and the marking. Those are the fundamental parts of our job.â&#x20AC;? The action consists of strike-related sanctions, including the withdrawal of student supervision before and after school, and at lunch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This work action is going to take as long as it needs to take,â&#x20AC;? said Barber. The strike action involves about 20 school boards in Ontario, including the

Renfrew County District School Board. Those taking strike action include early childhood educators, ofďŹ ce managers, teachers and occasional teachers. The work action is happening at such boards as Upper Canada, Waterloo Region, Wellington Catholic, Halton, Limestone, Toronto, Hastings and Prince Edward, and Ottawa-Carleton. Student supervision is being handled through a contingency plan, which means principals and vice-principals must stay on the high school grounds, and not leave for meetings. See WORK ACTION, page 22

All kinds of ladies in all kinds of attire came out to the Renfrew Armouries on Saturday, Nov. 10 for the third annual Hoot for Hospice ladies night out. The event raised $12,000 and participants had a great time sampling food donated by local restaurants and caterers and dancing to the music provided by Eddy and the Stingrays and 16-year-old signing sensation Jordan McIntosh. The Titanic-themed group earned top honours for decorated table. Organizer Jo-Anne Dowdall Brown said the young gentlemen who helped out and served did an excellent job, along with the kitchen volunteers and the organizing volunteers, who all combined to make the event a true success.

Toastmasters: Where have they gone? Toastmasters

R0121324877

For the past couple of years the Renfrew Toastmasters Club met at St. Josephʼs High School from September to June. This past September, we moved to the back of the Rocky Mountain House Restaurant. We meet every Monday night, except for Stat holidays. Our meeting time is still 7 to 9 p.m. and there is plenty of room for new members. We recently welcomed two new members to our group and they have begun working on their Competent Communicator and Competent Leader Manuals as they take on roles during the meeting. You can start your Toastmasters journey at any time. You donʼt have to join at a particular time of the year and you donʼt have to begin doing speeches at any particular time either. You are welcome to attend one or two meetings to find out more about what we do at our meetings. Many people think that Toastmasters talk and drink alcohol at the meetings. This is only partly true. The only beverages consumed are water and coffee, and only one person talks at a time. Eighty per cent of the meeting time is spent listening and

the Quizmaster checks on how well people listened by asking pertinent questions about the meeting content at the end of the meeting. Do you have trouble thinking on the spur of the moment? Table Topics will help you put your thoughts in order quickly. They are an important part of every meeting and usually follow the theme of the meeting. They may seem a little scary at first, but you will come to love them as they allow you to be creative for one or two minutes. Recently we held our area speech contests and members of the local valley clubs competed in the humorous speech contest and the evaluation contest. Lynne Zander was declared the winner in both clubs and proceeded to the Division Contest in Ottawa. The cost of a Toastmasters membership is less than $150 for the full year. Compare this with other communication courses, particularly those that are day long or only a few weeks. Your membership includes weekly meetings, fellowship, a monthly magazine and your first two manuals. It is a real bargain for the skills you will develop over the year. For more information you can call 613-432-7557, 613649-2950, or 613-433-3550.

Itʼs Movember and once again thousands of men are growing moustaches to raise vital funds and awareness for menʼs health, specifically prostate cancer and male mental health initiatives. Again this year MPP John Yakabuski is taking part in this important fundraiser. For the rest of this month John and other selfless and generous men, known as Mo Bros, will grow, groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery. Donations can be made to MPP Yakabuskiʼs Movember Canada campaign online, or you can reference John Yakabuski and Registration # 2408074 and send it to Movember Canada, 119 Spadina Avenue, PO Box 65, Toronto, ON M5T 2T2.

According to Prostate Cancer Canada, one in seven men will be diagnosed with a form of prostate cancer, making it the most common cancer among Canadian men. One out of five Canadians will experience a mental illness in their lifetime and the remaining four will have a family member or colleague who will. “Everyday I run in to people who have lost a loved one to prostate cancer or are suffering from this disease themselves and people with mental health issues have too long kept their illness under wraps because of the myths and misconceptions,” said MPP Yakabuski. “Movember sparks conversation and helps spread awareness of menʼs health issues and I am proud to be part of this important campaign,” he said.

A main issue in todayĘźs society is safety, and certainly womenĘźs safety. Heather Kewley, retired Detective Inspector with the OPP, addressed the Sterling Chapter #307 Order of the Eastern Star Past MatronĘźs Club Saturday morning. The information seminar was held at 340 Raglan St. on the third ďŹ&#x201A;oor. Kewley worked in various capacities with the OPP for 34 years before retiring to the Renfrew area. She worked her way up from criminal court to working in homicide in eastern Ontario while based in Orillia. Kewley also helped structure a program to make women better equipped against child and sexual abuse or domestic violence. She said crimes of this nature can often be linked. If someone says something to a victim in Renfrew, and later the same line is used in an assault in Ottawa, chances are good, itĘźs the same perpetrator. KewleyĘźs audience of about 30 women proved that you are never too old to protect oneĘźs

Heather Kewley self as one member of the gathering was 96. Staying safe often comes down to common sense, Kewley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of it is basic awareness of whatĘźs around you,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Trust your gut instinct. If it doesnĘźt feel right, it probably isnĘźt right.â&#x20AC;? Kewley said crimes such as sexual assault and violence are not limited to the wellpopulated areas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of people think these things only happen in big cities, but trust me, they donĘźt.

They can happen in smaller communities.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Reduce your risk. Be aware. Bad things do happen to good people,â&#x20AC;? Kewley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When travelling, give someone you trust your itinerary.â&#x20AC;? She also suggests parking in front of building. If thatĘźs not possible, park in a well-lit space. â&#x20AC;&#x153;DonĘźt tell your whole life story to someone you havenĘźt met before,â&#x20AC;? she further advised. When travelling, always come in the front door of a hotel. Say hello to the person at the front desk and make them aware that you are in your room. Take a look around before stepping into an elevator, Kewley added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If somebody looks creepy or you donĘźt feel comfortable, donĘźt get on.â&#x20AC;? Stand near the controls while on an elevator, Kewley adds. DonĘźt become a target, such as wearing a lot of jewelry, and treat your credit cards like cash. â&#x20AC;&#x153;DonĘźt give them to anybody else. DonĘźt give anybody your PIN number,â&#x20AC;? she cautioned.

Renfrew audience learns why, how to prevent bullying Peter Clark peter.clark@metroland.com

Stand up! Donʼt stand by. The was the message Dr. Tracy Vaillancourt stressed when it comes to bullying, at an information session held Oct. 25 evening in the St. Josephʼs High School auditorium. The Canadian research chair in childrenʼs mental health and violence prevention, Dr. Vaillancourt spoke about the mental health effects on victims of bullying, effective intervention strategies for teachers, adults, and bystanders and prevention. The information session, in front of about 70 people, was presented by the Renfrew Police Services Board and OPP. The Admaston-Bromley Police Services Board provided busing for Grade 9 and 10 Opeongo High School students to attend a session Dr. Vaillancourt conducted with Renfrew Collegiate and St. Josephʼs Grade 9 and 10s earlier in the day. “I was very impressed with their level of maturity,” Dr. Vaillancourt said of the young students. “Itʼs a sensitive subject. “Bullying is typically a form of repeated, persistent and aggressive behaviour directed at an individual or individuals that is should be known (or is known) to cause feat an distress and/or harm to another personʼs body, feelings, self-esteem or reputation,” Dr. Vaillancourt said. “Physical bullying is rare, compared to social bullying,” she pointed out. “I address this issue in Canada every day. “Ninety-five per cent of kids come wanting to learn and enjoy school,” the doctor said. In Grades 4 through 12, 17,000 Ontario students were asked about bullying. About 50 per cent said they had been verbally bullied in the last three months, and 63.1 per cent were bullied, period. Ten per cent said they were bullied every single day. “Bullying takes many forms,” Dr.

Vaillancourt said. “It includes physical, verbal, social, cyber, racial and sexual.” Among the many long-term consequences, some people get sad, some get angry. “Both are not good,” Dr. Vaillancourt said. Physical health problems, stress-related illness, social withdrawal, academic difficulties and low esteem also come with being bullied. Suicide is often next. Gay youth are seven times more likely to commit suicide, Dr. Vaillancourt said. Homophobic bullying is most rampant in high school and middle school. There is a high depression rate as a result of bullying, Doctor Vaillancourt said. “There is ample evidence to suggest the bullying has led to depression later in life,” she added. “What makes bullying hurt so much is that human beings have a fundamental need to belong. Children cry themselves to sleep at night because nobody wants to play with them at school.” “Physical pain is shortlived. Social pain lasts a lifetime,” Dr. Vaillancourt said. “That is why bullying hurts so bad.” The old adage sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me isnʼt true, she added. “Thereʼs no evidence to prove that. “When someone punches you in the face, we know itʼs wrong. But mental bullying is aloud to continue.” An example the doctor used was that of a 92-year-old woman she knows, still in anguish over things other kids said to her when she was 12. “Thatʼs 80 years ago!” Dr. Vaillancourt said. “The social elite of the school are the ones who do the most bullying,” Dr. Vaillancourt said. “The real bully is aggressive and pro-social. They are very popular, have excellent social skills and high esteem. They are high on assets and competencies, low pyschopathology.

“They are aggressive toward their own peer group, and four times more aggressive than the stereotype bully.” Dr. Vaillancourt said. “You give people power and they tend to abuse it.” They often end up being a CEO, a department chair, or something along those lines. “Schools say they donʼt have a bully problem,” Dr. Vaillancourt stressed. “All schools have a bullying problem. “They get bullied in the low areas of supervision, in the halls, cafeteria, on the way to the bus. Schools must increase monitoring. “(They are) so worried about some pedophile coming into the school, but we are missing the forest for the trees. “We encourage children to report bullying. Parents should monitor their FacePETER CLARK/METROLAND book account. Printscreen it.

Itʼs absolutely disgusting” Dr. Vaillancourt said, noting the case of British Columbia teenager Amanda Todd. “Itʼll never be eliminated, but it would be good if we could get it down to two To per cent,” Dr. Vaillancourt added. She also realizes, people make misRenfrew Concrete Works Ltd takes. (Ken Prince & Family) I told the kids in Grade 9 and Grade 10, mistakes happen. If you make a misfor purchasing my take, apologize.

Half of the funding comes from the federal government with the balance split between the province and the municipality. The work under the plan can include improvements in neighborhood services, such as sewer and water, sidewalks on road improvements as well as increased recreation areas.

NEW COMPANY OVERHAULS MACHINERY: Since taking possession of the Dowd Milling Co.ʼs mill here the Renfrew Flour Mills, Limited, have given the machinery a complete overhauling and the building a thorough cleaning and fumigating. The rolls were sent to Toronto to be reground, new silk has been put in the bolters, and everything necessary to put the mill in proper condition has been done. The capacity of the mill is four hundred barrels, but only two hundred and seventy five are yet ready for using, and these were put in operation on Wednesday. R.

A representative of the Harness Trade Journal came along one day and sighted Mr. McEwenʼs big bay horse. Nothing would do, but he must have a picture of it for his publication. Having done service before the eyes of the trade of Canada in that, it now finds use in attracting the attention of the horse lovers in this district to the good things to be found in McEwenʼs harness centre.

MR. ARCH OʼCONNOR HOME FROM NORTH DAKOTA: Mr. Arch OʼConnor of St. Thomas, North Dakota arrived in Renfrew on Thursday last, coming because of the serious illness of his sister Mrs. McCrea of Opeongo Street who suffers from the infirmities of age. Mr. OʼConnor, who was last here five years ago, was one of the young men leaving Renfrew for Uncle Samʼs domain in 1879, at which time emigration from Canada was heavy. The other three were his brothers Daniel, Patrick MacDonald and John Woods of Admaston who have since passed away. Mr. OʼConnor also comments upon the death recently of another old friend, James Barr of Nebraska, who like himself was born within bell distance of Renfrew, one on a farm in Horton, the other on a farm in Admaston. The Dakota sojourn tells of good crops, in the Dakotas this year, that out of the world has in time had the same drought conditions now prevailing out of Saskatchewan. BUSH WORKERS SEEK A RAISE: Lumber operators and bush workers conferred at Pembroke as to wages and hours for bush workers, but could not reach an agreement. The men seek a 26-day month at $42.50 per month, but the operators want to pay no more than from $26 to $34. Wages are higher on the Quebec side of the Ottawa, but the stumpage dues are lower over there.

When it was explained that the account was for toilet paper and other supplies for the town offices, councillor Bob Kimberley inquired why the goods were being purchased out of town. “Charity begins at home,” he said.

driest and hottest summers on record. When a Level 2 Drought was declared on July 19, 2012, many anticipated a short dry spell with agricultural damage that would be offset by federal and provincial financial assistance. Instead, the residents and businesses of this area are still mired in a Level 2 Drought, there is widespread economic damage to all sectors, and unless there is a very significant snowfall during the winter months, the spring of 2013 could deliver incredible devastation to this region that depends on agriculture, forestry and tourism as its primary economic drivers.

Since the Level 2 Drought was initiated, the County of Renfrew and the Ministry of Natural Resources have co-chaired a Water Response Team. This committee has held regular meetings and teleconferences with over 80 stakeholders, including various provincial ministries, municipalities, hydro producers, agricultural associations, and other partners to try and monitor the situation to try and plan for the spring of 2013 in case the lack of precipitation continues. If you have any questions, contact your local municipal office or a local well driller. Continue to conserve and monitor your water.

Heat is on at St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s High Abby Hall Jaguar Journal

The weather is deďŹ nitely cooler, but the heat is on at St. JoeĘźs! This week, busy schedules are made busier with culminating projects and midterm tests. The ďŹ rst term ofďŹ cially ended last Friday, and report cards are being sent out this week. Last Thursday, the Jaguars showed their school spirit by dressing in garnet and grey to support the senior boysĘź volleyball team once again. The boys were competing for the county championship, and their determination was evident throughout the matches. The enthusiasm from the crowd helped the boys win sets against Opeongo and General Panet, capturing the county title. The junior girlsĘź basketball team are on their way to EOSSAA after a very successful season. They travel to Ingleside on Nov. 14 to compete. Citrus orders are expected to arrive at the end of November or in early December. Customers will be contacted when the orders arrive, and there will also be a notice posted on the school website. Thank you for your continuous support of the music program! The pastoral team at St. JoeĘźs is busy with Operation Christmas Child. This is an

A shoebox is ďŹ lled with age and gender appropriate toys, clothes and schools supplies. The boxes are then shipped around the world and given to a child in need. Shoeboxes are available outside the chapel at St. JoeĘźs, and must be ďŹ lled and returned by Nov. 22. The Dominican Republic team is preparing busily for next yearĘźs mission trip. Students on the team are strongly encouraged to attend weekly Spanish language lessons, taught by teacher Patri-

cia Bouchard. Learning the language of the people of the Dominican will be extremely helpful when the mission team is living in their community. Please note that a Coffee House will be held at St. JosephĘźs on Nov. 22 at 7 p.m. Admission is $5, which gets you a night of fantastic student entertainment.

Your product saved my career!

I teach college level and in the winter...I was catching ďŹ ve, six colds a year... I was seriously considering retirement. My sister suggested Immuno-Care. Well I have not caught a single cold since then. I have been cold free for three consecutive winters now... I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think I would dare face another Canadian winter without it. A.L. PQ

If you ďŹ nd yourself running for cover every time someone coughs, or missing days of work due to chronic colds and ďŹ&#x201A;u, then your immune system may need help. Plant sterols help balance the immune system to ďŹ ght chronic colds and ďŹ&#x201A;u, especially in the winter months when our immune systems can be under constant attack. Plant sterols are essential to the body, but like vitamin C, the body cannot synthesize them, they have to be ingested. However, due to the modern processing of food, todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s diets tend to be deďŹ cient in sterols.

Immuno-CareÂŽ is a one-a-day plant sterol supplement clinically tested and proven to support the body against colds, ďŹ&#x201A;u, seasonal allergies, infection, inďŹ&#x201A;ammation and the symptoms of auto-immune diseases.

MWO Mercredi speaks from the heart at Renfrew Collegiate peter.clark@metroland.com

Renfrew Collegiate staff and students took an hour from their day Friday to remember those who have fought for our country. Special guests of RCI were Master Warrent Officer Stanley Mercredi and wife Sgt. Deborah Mercredi, who attended the ceremony. MWO Mercredi has 30 years experience with the military and this past Sunday, was deployed to Afghanistan. He brought notes to the podium for his talk with RCI students, but never used them. His wife and best friend, Deborah, told him, “Speak from the heart.” “I was watching the video, and it always chokes me up,” an emotional MWO Mercredi said on stage.

Strike action Continued from page 13

Other support is coming from retired principals and board-based administrators. The Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario indicates that its elementary teachers are not yet in a strike position. However, more than 75 ETFO locals have requested conciliation to help negotiate their collective

People that go off to defend their country are expected to be strong, he said. But they show their emotions like anyone else. “What we do is because we love Canada,” Mercredi said. “Itʼs not for glory or anything else. “Twenty-six of my comrades died. Twenty-six times I did the salute as they carried them past me. You can never prepare for that. “He gave his life for me as he knew Iʼd do for him,” Mercredi added of each of his fallen comrades. He said bodies are transported home at night when attacks are less likely. “You want to get them home so their families can grieve. “Leaving your loved ones behind is the hardest, hardest thing you can do,” MWO Mercredi added of this missions. “You never know when the ultimate sac-

agreements with the Province. The ETFOʼs collective agreements expired on Aug. 31, 2012. Meanwhile, the elementary teachers are backing an online petition calling for MPPs to repeal Bill 115, which was passed in September. “Bill 115,” says the online petition, “undermines the guarantees made to all Canadians under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. It strips education professionals of their right to collectively bargain

rifice will be given or taken.” His daughterʼs words, “If you love me, you wonʼt go,” often echo in his mind. Five and a half years of his 30 years in the military have been spent outside of Canada. “Thatʼs a long time,” MWO Mercredi said. Stepping up for the county is what military personnel believe in. “What is it to be courageous? Standing up for what you believe in is courageous,” he said. “I am honoured to be speaking to you here today,” he added to the students of RCI. “Wear your poppy over the heart. Itʼs from the heart. If you see a veteran, go over and shake their hand. “Learn Canadian history,” MWO Mercredi added. “Itʼs not just military history, itʼs your history, and youʼve got to keep that history alive.”

and places the government above the reach of the Ontario Human Rights Code, the Ontario Labour Relations Act, and the courts. It sets a dangerous precedent.” ETFOʼs goal is to get 100,000 signatures. Last month, the OSSTF filed a legal challenge against the Ontario government over passage of Bill 115, or the Putting Students First Act. The bill is preventing the teachers from being able to negotiate in an

open and fair manner, says Barber. “I truly believe we could have an agreement, given the opportunity,” said the Local 28 president. “We could keep negotiating without an agreement. Weʼve done that before. But Bill 115 has changed that.” Among other things, Bill 115 freezes the teachersʼ wage grid, sharply reduces the number of annual sick days, eliminates the payout from banking more than 200 sick

days, and gives the education minister the right to intervene in collective bargaining. This weekʼs strike action does not include the Renfrew County Catholic School Boardʼs two high schools, St. Josephʼs (Renfrew) and Bishop Smith (Pembroke). The board hasnʼt signed off, but its teachers have a memorandum of agreement with the Province through the Ontario English Catholic Teachers Association (OECTA). R0021744001

Pine grosbeaks harvest crab apples and ashberries This past week two female pine grosbeaks arrived to harvest crab apples and ash berries at the home of John and Peg Reinwald. A ďŹ&#x201A;ock of evening grosbeaks also arrived, the ďŹ rst in several years. Beverly and Art Cobb had much the same arrivals with evening grosbeaks and a family of pine grosbeaks (two parents and four young) arriving, to feed on crab apples. Pine grosbeaks are country birds and feed primarily on the fruit of the staghorn sumac, crab apples and berries usually from trees away from built up areas. In 1997 123 pine grosbeaks were counted on the Christmas Bird Count but the past two years 2010 and 2011, the birds were absent from the count. They, like waxwings, feed on fruit and they must travel over a wide area to ďŹ nd their main food source. It also means that they are abundant in an area one year and absent the next. The males and females of both species have very different colour patterns. Evening grosbeak males are yellow, black and white, females are silvery gray with small amounts of black and white. Male pine grosbeaks are dull red (it varies) have dark wings with two white wing bars, females are gray with two white wing bars, head and rump are tinged with olive yellow. Please let us know if pine grosbeaks are feeding in your fruit trees.

JIM FERGUSON SCENE FROM THE HAWKâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S EYE

GROSBEAKS, WAXWINGS

Jim Easton at Calabogie has a ďŹ&#x201A;ock of 25-plus evening grosbeaks at his feeder, the ďŹ rst in many years. A pair of cardinals and more blue jays than he can count are also enjoying sunďŹ&#x201A;ower seeds at JimĘźs feeder and any wild fruit in the area. Ruby and Jim Vieland at Cobden have a ďŹ&#x201A;ock of more than 20 Bohemian waxwings feeding on ash berries at their home. The birds will be leaving soon as they have eaten most of the berries on the bushes. Where they all go is anyoneĘźs guess. WHAT TO FEED

If you wish to feed wild birds this winter it is important to choose the right food for them. SunďŹ&#x201A;ower seeds, black oil or stripped, are best and birds will pick them above all others. For the small ďŹ nches Niger seed is best. SafďŹ&#x201A;ower, cracked corn and millet are a distant third when it comes to bird feed. A lot of seed makes its way onto the ground but ground feeders, mourning doves and juncos, will pick and choose what they want and very little is wasted. We ďŹ nd that mixed seed contains very little of the good stuff but is less expensive.

Suet, peanut butter and lard are cold weather foods and are best served when temperatures are below freezing. The food spoils otherwise. We will have more to say about feeding suet when the weather gets colder.

FOX SPARROW

Carol McCuaig had a fox sparrow at her feeder Nov. 7. We see this, our largest sparrow, only during the spring and fall migration when they are on their way to and from their nesting grounds in northern Ontario, Quebec and the Prairies. The rusty red streaking on the back and breast and the solid rusty red of the tail give this sparrow its foxy look. They are larger than a house sparrow and shufďŹ&#x201A;e through the leaves, throwing them in every direction with both feet as they search for food.

Senior Jaguars serve up Renfrew County volleyball title Peter Clark peter.clark@metroland.com

The St. Josephʼs Jaguars completed a 10-and-0 regular season, and added four more wins en route to capturing the Renfrew County senior boys volleyball champions in the home gymnasium Thursday afternoon. The Jaguars scored a 25-12, 25-20, 23-25, 25-19 win over the Opeongo Wildcats in the semifinal in a morning match. St. Josephʼs put the 2012 crown away with a 25-14, 2516, 25-27, 25-16 win over the General Panet Panthers. “It was a satisfying season. All year long the team played fantastic ball,” Jaguars coach Trent Skelhorn said. “We continued off last year, and gained experience from the tournaments we played in.” “It was a fast (paced) game against Opeongo, with some

good rallies, and we were able to get everyone in (against Panet in game 3),” the coach added. The Jaguars will represent Renfrew County at the Eastern Ontario (EOSSAA) senior boys volleyball championship for A schools. The event runs today at Iroquois Falls. The Junior Jaguars came within one match of a successful title defence of their 2011 Renfrew County junior boys crown. But the Mackenzie Mustangs met the challenge on their home court. The Mustangs won the final 3-0 in Deep River Thursday afternoon. Coach Meghan Cahillʼs Jaguars went 5-and-2 in the regular season and 3-and-0 in the playoffs to reach the final. Included was an emotional five-set win over regular-season champion Bishop Smith

Crusaders Nov. 6, and a 3-0 triumph over the Fellowes Falcons in the semifinal. BASKETBALL FINAL

The Jaguars ran into a buzzsaw known as the Arnprior Redmen in the county junior girls basketball final. Arnprior scored a 49-14 triumph. However, the Jaguars have earned the right to represent the county at EOSSAA this week (Wednesday) in Ingleside. Getting to the league final was a good accomplishment for the Jaguars, coach mark Valliqette said. “Itʼs the first time I can recall in the last few years that a St. Josephʼs team made it to a basketball final.” The coach said they lost to a talented team. “They have nine club players. They are pretty deep.”

Wolves edge Pontiac Juniors Peter Clark peter.clark@metroland.com

The Renfrew Timberwolves were minus a number of regulars, including three of the clubʼs top scorers for their Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League encounter Friday night. They were still able to pull together enough offence to forge a 3-2 win over the Pontiac Juniors before a good crowd at the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre. The game was the only one on the weekend schedule for the Wolves. Their 9-7-0-and-1 record keeps them in the chase for top spot in the Valley Division standings. They trail the Perth Blue Wings by two points and share second place with the Arnprior Packers. WOLVES 3 PONTIACS 2

Matt McIntyre picked a

good time to score his first two goals as a Renfrew Timberwolf. That, and some splendid netminding from Matt Gagne, was the difference. Tyler Charbonneau gave the Pontiacs a 1-0 lead in the opening stanza. McIntyre fired home a dart right off a face-off to pull the Wolves even early in the second period. Dallas Farr made it 2-1 halfway through the period, and McIntyre upped it to 3-1 nine minutes into the final stanza. Shawville netminder Danick Boisvert got himself caught behind the net. Nathan Homuth shovelled the puck in front, and McIntyre poked it into the yawning cage. Matthew Brooks-Fournier made for a hair-raising finish when he connected on a Pontiac powerplay with 2:36 left. The night for Renfrewʼs

Dylan Zavitske and the Pontiacs Dylan McNamara didnʼt last long. The two Dylans were banned for fighting about 13 minutes into the game. WOLVES HOWLINGS

Admaston-Bromley Coun. Dirk Rook didnʼt tip his hand. Grandson Quinton Rook is the captain of the Pontiacs. Another grandson, Nolan Rook, plays defence for the Wolves. The Wolves caught a break with just 39 seconds left. With the Pontiacs pressing for the equalizer, referee Scott Garrod lost sight of the puck and whistled the play dead, a mere second before Shawville rapped home what would have been a game-tying marker. The Wolves are in Perth Friday at 7:45 p.m. On Sunday, the Gatineau Mustangs visit the MAC at 7:30 p.m.

Ryan Arbuthnot hoists the hardware and checkered flag in Victory Lane at Cornwall Motor Speedway following his third feature win of the year.

Hockey fans in particular, and people of Renfrew and area, should be aware that the NHA-NHL Birthplace Museum is open for business. Located at 249 Raglan St. on the second floor of the Renfrew Post Office building, the museum is open Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. “We are being more aggressive, letting people know we are open,” said executive director Ray Dunbar. Dunbar took over from Jim Miller as the executive direc-

tor around Thanksgiving of this year. “The biggest thing now is to approach the public for donations or the loaning or settling of artifacts pertaining to Renfrew hockey,” Dunbar said. The museum will be a part of a big event come late next year. “The Society for International Hockey Research has chosen Renfrew as host of their 2013 conference in October,” Dunbar said. They go all over Canada, Dunbar explained. They had a big event at the Bell Centre in Montreal a few years ago

with several former Canadiens players present. “We are going to have an official opening (at the museum) in July 2013,” Dunbar said. “Drop in when youʼre watching this yearʼs Santa Claus Parade (Dec. 1),” he added. “Weʼll be open.” People are welcome to browse around, and offer suggestions for the museum. “The biggest thing is getting people to know we are here and open,” said Dunbar. The museum can be reached at 613-433-3111 or online at www.nhlbirth.ca.

Third generation keeps long-time Arbuthnot race tradition going Peter Clark

RICK YOUNG

Ryan Arbuthnot in action at Cornwall. He makes an inside pass and continue to drive on to a feature win Aug. 26. “I started in 2010,” Ryan recalls, “and went to DIRTcar (Sportsman division) in 2011.” His dad remained in Vintage Modified, where he continues to compete. Ryan enjoyed a good 2012. “We race a lot in Brockville and Cornwall. The features are 25 laps. I ended up with three feature wins this year, and had a good run in Syracuse. That is the championship,” he said. Two of Arbuthnotʼs wins came at Cornwall, and the third in Brockville. An Aug. 26 win in Cornwall was extra rewarding since it gave Ryan and Steve wins on the same night. Ryan finished third overall in track points at Cornwall, and eighth in Brockville. He also earned a top-10 ranking in the DIRTcar Sportsman Series for 2012. Ryan was third in the future race at the New York State Fairgrounds in Syracuse, and began the Sportsman championship in 28th place. He

climbed all the way to eighth place on a tough track to pass on, before his motor died with three laps remaining. Arbuthnot was quick to credit his crew and sponsors, and is already looking forward to getting back behind the wheel in 2013. “I wouldnʼt be able to do any of this without the great help from our pit crew and the sponsors that support us all season long. “I want to thank (crew chief) Bob East, Tyler Lambert, Krystyn, Dad (Steve), and Grandfather (Ron) for all their hard work and support during the season.”

R0011737766/1115

Family history takes years to generate, and for the Arbuthnots, they can boast three generationsʼ worth when it comes to car racing. Perhaps unknown to them, Ron Arbuthnot and Norm Ilan of Renfrew got the Arbuthnot Racing tradition started in 1975 when they put a car together in their Renfrew shop. The car R70 was formed. The car was numbered 70 in reference to the address of the gas station Ilan owned at 70 Raglan St. The R was added to stipulate Renfrew, as another number 70 was also competing in their first race. Legendary drivers such as Dave Heaslip and Denzil Billings have spent time behind the wheel of Arbuthnot Racing cars over the years. Today, Arbuthnot Racingʼs tradition continues. Ronʼs son Steve pilots the R70 in the vintage modified class, and Steveʼs son Ryan competes in the DIRTcar sportsman division. Ilan and Arbuthnot (Ron) worked on cars at the now defunct Allumette Raceway in the 1970s, including the R70, 88, of which Heaslip took the wheel, and B22, driven by Billings. They enjoyed success at Brockville, Kingston, Cornwall, and Capital City, and captured some track championships along the way. Steve Arbuthnot started his racing career shortly thereafter at Allumette Speedway, before resurrecting the R70 that his father first used when he began racing.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC MEETING

FELLOW RENFREWITES

Steve teamed up with fellow Renfrewite Kevin Fraser in the early 1980s and won numerous races. But halfway through the decade, the sport changed drastically and Arbuthnot Racing sat idle for several years. However, a vintage modified division was formed at Brockville Speedway and Steve re-entered the racing scene. Son Ryan joined him and the two drivers shared some success in vintage modified.

Dragonfly Golf Links is hosting a public meeting to present its Annual Report on Class 9 pesticide use as required by Ontario Regulation 63/09 under the Pesticides Act. The Annual Report summarizes the use of Class 9 pesticides used at Dragonfly Golf Links in 2011. The meeting will take place in the office of Dragonfly Golf Links which is located on 955 Opeongo Road, Renfrew, Ontario K7V 3Z5 at 7:00pm November 21, 2012.

Steve Arbuthnot pilots the R70 to victory in the Dirt Modified division in the last 1970s.

Dog racing returning to Bristol HD Virtual Golf swings into Renfrew Peter Clark peter.clark@metroland.com

The third annual Bristol Dryland Canadian Championship dog races runs Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 24 and 25 in Timberland on Ragged Chute Road, Bristol, Que. The event is gaining popularity world-wide, chief organizer Denis Rozon said. “The Americans tell us, ʻYou let us know when your event is. Weʼll work our schedule around it.ʼ “We had 104 teams last year, including 80 per cent from the States, three (teams) from Europe and three world champions. “We had 1,000 spectators per day two years ago,” Rozon added of the inaugural Bristol dog races which drew 76 teams in 2010. Last yearʼs attendance was a bit less, but the races were scheduled during hunting season. But that wonʼt happen again, Rozon said. “Weʼve applied for the 2015 world championship. And weʼre going to get it,” Rozon added confidently. At least two of the competitors at next weekʼs Bristol event are from this area. Both Lynn Cheffins of Douglas and Kiara Brintnell of the Denbigh area are back to compete. “Itʼs really nice to have an event this close to home,” Cheffins said. “Dryland is a newer sport and its popularity is growing.” Cheffins enjoys that there

Canadian championship dog racing returns to Bristol, Que. on Nov. 24 and 25. are a few dog and driver competitions within a couple hours of home. “Iʼve been at Marmora and Bancroft,” she said. Cheffins has been dog sledding for more than 20 years, but mainly for recreation until six or seven years ago. “I usually do the eight-dog mid distance,” she said. There are nine separate classes of dog races. Featured over the two days at Bristol will be canicross, which is running behind the dog, bikejoring (bicycle), scooter, cart 4 (dogs), cart 6 and cart 8. Canicross opens the action on the dryland course on both days at 9:30 a.m. while the

courses to play and conditions can be adjusted, including tee box position, wind speed, pin positions as well as green firmness and speed. In addition, golfers can choose between stroke, match, best ball, stableford or skins play for added variety.

Sledge hockey comes to St. Joseph’s Catholic High School

PETER CLARK/METROLAND

St. Joseph’s High School students enjoy the experience of sledge hockey.

Grade 9 and 10 students from the St. Josephʼs Catholic High School Hockey Academy had a rare opportunity to participate in sledge hockey at the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre Oct. 23. Sledge hockey (aka sled hockey) is a sport that was designed to allow people with physical disabilities the opportunity to play the game of ice hockey. It currently is one of the most popular sports in the Paralympic Games, Jeff Halk of the academy noted. Allan Yull of Community Living Renfrew County South conducted the sledge hockey session. The game is an innovative team sport that incorporates the same rules and discipline

structure as regular ice hockey, Yull said. Sledge hockey players sit on specially designed sleds, or ʻsledgesʼ with skate blades under the seat. Two sticks are used to not only to pass, stickhandle and shoot the puck, but also to propel and manoeuvre their sledges. Hard checking, elevated puck shooting, and 60-milean-hour slap shots are as much a part of sledge hockey as they are in ʻstand-up hockey.\ MANY CANDIDATES

Anyone with a disability that would prevent them from participating in regular hockey is a candidate for sledge hockey, Yull said.

It is a sport that allows players with mobility limitation (amputees, and able-bodied people with knee, leg or hip injuries) to play, and requires great upper-body strength, balance, and the ability to handle the puck. Even able-bodied people individuals enjoy the sport of sledge hockey, but are generally at a disadvantage due to the superior upper body strength of a wheelchair user,. “Our students taking part in this really enjoyed every moment of it.,” Halk said. “They found it neat, and a different way for them to look at the sport of hockey.” “It was a great experience for us to participate in,” student Adam Wright said in summing up the experience.

Novice Wolves continue hot hockey streak with easy win over Muskrat Peter Clark peter.clark@metroland.com

The Renfrew Novice Timberwolves continued their fast start to the Upper Ottawa Valley Hockey League season with their fifth win in seven starts, a resounding 13-2 decision over Muskrat. Chase Congdon and Carter Jarrett had three goals while Angus Duchene (2G, 2A) and Ryan Kelusky

added a pair. Luke Steele (1G, 2A), Garrett Box (1G, 2A) and Braeden Curley (1G, 2A) carded singles in front of goaltender Owen Osborne. SILVER STICK

The Atom Wolves ran up against a couple of hot-shooting teams at the Regional Silver Stick hockey tournament in Pembroke last weekend. After dropping a tough 3-2 deci-

sion to the Metcalfe River Rats on two goals late in the third period Friday, the Wolves were clipped 8-1 and 9-4 respectively by the North Dundas Demons and South Grenville Rangers Saturday. Colby Bleeks had three goals and Liam Todd a pair for Renfrew. Jack OʼGrady and Justin Schutt added singles. Schutt also had three assists. Summer Simons and Johnathon

Roach shared goaltending duties for the Wolves. Luke Moran made 20 stops and Carter Bleeks and Jayce Greer scored in a Peewee Wolvesʼ 2-2 tie with Pembroke. The Bantam Wolves dropped a 6-5 thriller to Deep River on a goal with 39 seconds left. Jared Leclaire had two Renfrew markers, Lindon Fraser, Nicholas Fleguel and Zach Moran added

singles. John Agnew collected two assists. Carter Atkins started in goal, and was relieved by Carter Blimkie. The Minor Midget Wolves lost three games in a Kemptville tournament, but blanked Pembroke in league play behind Pat Bruzasʼ fifth shutout 3-0. Nick Hazen, Adam Wright and Auston Pierce scored.

No NYC, but still a marathon

Bonnie’s Sunday marathon for the Renfrew food bank Peter Clark peter.clark@metroland.com

Bonnie McIntyre tried on four occasions to qualify for the New York City Marathon before finally gaining a passing grade for this year. But thanks to Hurricane Sandy, the 2012 marathon scheduled for Nov. 4 was cancelled. Like so many others, it meant that McIntyre had to pack up and head for home. It was to be her first official marathon. However, all is not lost. Many of her cohorts have arranged for the Renfrew-area runner to run her first marathon this Sunday, Nov. 18. Itʼll start and finish at Source for Sports and sheʼll navigate her way through the streets and byways both in Renfrew, and throughout the surrounding area.

Minor midgets Continued from page 28

The Minor Midget Wolves host Petawawa Friday at 8:30 p.m., and take on Arnprior Saturday in a 4:45 p.m. start at the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre. The Bantam Wolves face Arnprior Monday at 8:30 p.m. The Peewee Wolves are at the Silver Stick this weekend. NOVICE HOUSE HOCKEY

Bonnieʼs Marathon for the Food Bank will start at 10:05 a.m. Sunday, the same time the New York City Marathon was scheduled to start. The key is to finish, time wonʼt be a big deal. The run route will include Pinnacle and Garden of Eden roads, Bruce Street, Whitton, Gillan and OʼBrien roads, Veteransʼ Memorial Boulevard, Opeongo Road and Highway 132. The last five kilometres of the marathon will take place on streets in Renfrew. Watch for runners in the orange toques. People can support McIntyreʼs effort by donating to the Renfrew and District Food Bank. They can also drop off food bank items at Source for Sports.

The ladies have the spotlight this week as the first round of the Senior Ladies competition, the Autumn Leaves, has been completed. The two Renfrew teams travelled to Arnprior and in the wonderful world of womenʼs interclub competition, played each other in the morning game. It must be that they donʼt get to see enough of each other in the 30 or 40 times they meet in Renfrew. As it turned out it was a tale of two teams one hot and one cold (and not only because the heaters werenʼt working). The team of Barb Westgarth, Ann Windle, Barb Roy, and Jean Klages controlled the

front of the house, made their shots and rolled to a comfortable win over their club mates Yvonne Sklepowicz, Faye Warren, Sandra Fredette and Anne MacNeil, who struggled with their shot-making. After lunch Yvonneʼs team stayed cold and continued to struggle with the same problems as in the morning, and did not present much difficulty to the host Arnprior team. The other team, now skipped by Barb Roy, presented a new look with Leith Collins at third, Laurie Millar at second and Jean still at lead in their game against Pembroke. Now, you would think that when you have lost your skip and vice you would have problems.

A new project spearheaded by a local musician and a small team of volunteers is doing double duty by raising funds for various organizations along with local hospitals. By holding just four free concerts so far, the Dai Basset and Musical Friends Ottawa Valley Concert Tour has raised $1,280 for area hospitals. A cheque for $642 was recently presented to the Renfrew Victoria Hospitalʼs foundation director Barb Desilets. “We sure would like to come back in a few months with another $500 for RVH,” says Bassett, who is also a local radio host. With the help of nine others on the Concert Tour bandwagon, the group has been coordinating efforts with organizations to secure venues in Renfrew and beyond. The performance is billed as a completely free event, with concert-goers asked to contribute a freewill offering at the door — as little or as much as they wish. The collection is split evenly between the host organizationʼs choice of charity and the closest community hospital. In return, everyone gets to enjoy a couple of hours of toetapping tunes featuring Bassett and a few other local singers.

The Bonnechere Manorʼs new House of Safety mural in the auditorium is only a symbol, but an important one. That importance was underlined during a brief unveiling ceremony held before a few dozen staff members and residents Oct. 22. The symbol is a multicoloured image that stretches almost to the ceiling. The mural represents a home with a solid roof and a strong foundation, consisting of about 200 separate bricks. Each brick is signed by a client, resident or staff member at the long-term care home in Renfrew. The mural was painted by members of the manorʼs art class under the direction of volunteer Diana Wakely and staff members Colleen Kunopaski, John Kiezebrink and Erin Wilson. The idea for the mural came from Bonnechere Manor environmental services supervisor Lee Kirkwood. The symbol, which stands for the manorʼs commitment to a safe and healthy living environment, is philosophically tied into the Accreditation Canada program. Every three years Accreditation Canada inspects longterm care facilities across the country. The organization gave the manor a strong thumbs-up in its last inspection three years ago, and is scheduled to return shortly for its next inspection. In the unveiling ceremony, Bonnechere Manor administrator Shayne Hoelke recognized safety and healthy isnʼt always just a fuzzy, warm concept. He said the staff recognizes the “need to move from a pathological culture of blame and shame, where failure is punished or, worse, concealed, to a culture of safety. That culture of safety, he said, includes a shared belief that long-term health care can be high risk at times. He said it also includes two other important elements: an organizational commitment to detecting and analyzing resident adverse events and near misses, and an environment that balances the need for reporting those events and taking appropriate disciplinary action. “We need,” said Hoelke, “to recognize the inevitability of error, and proactively seek to learn from past errors by studying them, evaluating them and implementing measures to reduce the number of errors.”

improve safety, and identification of tools to improve resident safety. These are also principles of Accreditation Canada. The manorʼs culture of safety was formally adopted in 2010. “This is a way,” says Kirkwood of the House of Safety mural, “of reminding staff and residents that we believe in safe healthcare.”

Sandvik Materials Technology Canada has ďŹ nished ďŹ rst in CanadaĘźs Global Corporate Challenge. The pedometer-counting, health-in-theworkplace program attracted 96 Canadian companies, as SandvikĘźs 49 participants made up seven teams of seven employees each. Sarah Schuster of Global Corporate Challenge and health and safety consultant Sue McLaren were on hand Oct. 23 with Sandvik president Mike Hall to congratulate the par-

ticipants and praise the movers and shakers in the four-month program that wrapped up at the Arnprior company in September. The leading calorie-burner was utility operator Sherri Steele of Renfrew from the Scatter Butts team. Bill Gillies, who led the individual standings for several weeks, emerged second and last yearĘźs winner, Brian Dunbar, was third. The top 10, in order, was completed by Manny Daigle, Clare Kavanagh, Karen Newell, Ian Fraser, Anna Fraser, Karen James and Ernie Millar.

Global Corporate Challenge a big hit with Sandvik Continued from page 35t

The top three teams at the Arnprior company were My Harem, runner-up Sandvik Stingrays and third-place Burning Soles. My Harem walked a total of 18.6 million steps, or 11,961 kilometres. TOP INDIVIDUAL

In taking the individual top spot, Steele, 37, says the program may have been a crucial first step toward quitting a 24year smoking habit, improving her fitness and bringing her closer to her two children. In placing first, Steele averaged 35,000 steps daily by biking, walking or swimming. She finished with 2,475 kilometres for a total of 3.9 million steps. Second-place Gillies took 3.7 million steps. The average person on a desk job is said to take 3,000 to 4,000 steps a day, but Sandvik participants pummelled that average. They averaged 20,655 steps per day, for the highest step average among 96 participating Canadian companies. Across the globe, 185,000 Global Corporate Challenge participants from 98 countries took 220 billion steps. For Steele, her first steps as part of the Global Corporate Challenge were intended to help her get to know fellow employees better. She only joined the company in Feb-

ruary before the program ran May through September. A smoker since the age of 13, she cut her daily smoking from a full pack to half a pack during Global Corporate Challenge. And she took the fitness option more often. For example, she cut out the drive of more than 500 metres to the mail box, walking there and back instead. She also did a lot more walking with her kids, whom she confesses spend a bit too much time playing video games. “It brought myself and my kids closer, and gave them a better understanding of exercise and healthy eating,” said Steele. ‘IT WAS ABOUT FAMILY’

“For me, it was about family. Just the time and the chance to be able to talk my kids, and the carefree relationship we had (while exercising),” she says of Kyle, 9, and Kaylee, 5. Mom also realized earlier in the program that it wasnʼt as tough as she had anticipated. The program has also motivated her to consider taking up running again, like she did in high school, so she can join her son for cross-country runs. Other Sandvik employees were also recognized for their

role in the Global Corporate Challenge. These included Julie Recoskie with the Guardian Angel Award, Ernie Miller with the Silly String Award for pulling the best prank, and Johnny McGregor with the Lawn Mower Dedication Award. The words ʻlawn mowerʼ were added because he purchased a push lawn mower so he could accumulate more steps during the challenge. The Spirit Award went to

Bill Gillies, who has taken up running and is always on the move, but more energized, because of the corporate challenge. His daily average was 32,000 steps, but one day he surpassed 65,000.

The Spirit Award went to Bill Gillies, who has taken up running and is always on the move, but more energized, because of the corporate challenge.

CAPTAIN OF THE YEAR

Captain of the year was Ian Fraser of My Harem. Unable to attend the awards ceremony, because of work commitments overseas, Fraser sent an email.

“Congratulations, girls,” he said to his teammates. “You are receiving this award because of the dedication and true spirit of team work you displayed daily throughout the course of this

event … thanks for the excellent four months … enjoy the moment.” As captain of the year, Fraser was awarded a gift certificate to replace a worn-out pair of sneakers.

The moment that you died, My heart split in two, The one side ďŹ lled with memories, The other died with you. I often lay awake at night, When the world is fast asleep, And take a walk down memory lane, With tears upon my cheek, Remembering you is easy, I do it every day, But missing you is a heartache, That never goes away. I hold you tightly within my heart, And there you will remain, Life has gone on without you, But it will never be the same. For those who still have their mother, Treat her with tender care, You will never know the emptiness, When you turn and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not there.

I loving memory of my loving wife Janet who was called to heaven 5 years ago Nov 15, 2007.

Forever in our hearts Michelle, Cory, Will and Jack Paula Tyler, Amy, Halle and Nolan Leslie, Chris, Owen and Lia

Patricia Pearce

Though your smile is gone forever and your hand I can not touch. I have your precious memories and your picture in my mind. Some day we will meet again, we know not when. Until then dear Lord If roses grow in heaven place a bouquet in Janetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s arms, and tell her theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re from me. Place a kiss upon her cheek, tell her I miss her so. You have her in your keeping. I have her in my thoughts, always in my heart.

Loved and missed everyday, Julie & Tim CL393184
