News - Gusting winds hampered firefighters efforts to get an early-morning Sunday fire in the snow-making pump house under control at Calabogie Peaks Resort. Staff was preparing to open the 2013-14 alpine ski and snowboarding season this weekend, but now that’s all changed. Owners Liz and Paul Murphy aren’t nailing down a revised date for the season-opener, but the delay will be at least a week as efforts continue to

refurbish or replace damaged equipment from the snow-making building at the base of the mountain. Cooler, sub-zero temperatures and modest snowfall had facilitated Calabogie Peaks’ move to open the season by this weekend, after investing about $2 million in new snowmaking technology over the last four years. “Our entire hill was covered with pipe and other snow-making equipment. That was the push, to have the whole hill covered this year,” said Liz Murphy. See PEAKS, page 7

A pretty fair prize for the Beachburg Fair president steve.newman@metroland.com

It was a busy and productive Nov. 21 for Beachburg Fair president Adrian Vereyken. He was elected to a fourth straight term as president, at the fair board’s annual general meeting, while earlier in the day he and wife Erin travelled to Ottawa where the Canadian Association of Fairs and Expositions honoured him as Canadian Fair Champion. The Ottawa-based organization represents Canadian rural fairs, urban expositions, agricultural societies, provincial associations, industry service providers and affiliate associations with a direct interest in the industry. The award is in his name, but any member of the board of directors was just as deserving, said the 32-year-old Beachburg resident. “It means a lot,” he added. “We put a lot into the fair and in the past three years we have seen huge improvements. Attendance more than doubled last year.” A lot of that credit goes to the decision to stage the monster trucks, but that’s not the only improvement, says Vereyken. Improvements over the last few years include the building of a new stage, cattle dome and beer facil-

ity, and a revamped exhibition hall. The hall, which is more than a century old, has been used just a few days in July for the Beachburg Fair. But new pine walls and batting indoors have turned the hall into a three-season facility for rentals, which will increase revenue and help the fair grow, says Vereyken. It should be no surprise he’s one of the moving forces behind the 157-yearold fair. The Beachburg resident has had a strong interest in farming for more than 20 years, after owning his own cattle by the time he was 15. He works full-time at Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd., but the father of two children also works with horses, does some cashcropping and produces maple syrup products with his wife and dad (John). “I have been impressed with the ongoing commitment and contribution to the community made by Adrian and his board. There is no doubt that he is deserving of this worthy recognition,” said Howard Winters, treasurer of the last three Beachburg Fairs. A major reason Vereyken received the Canadian Fair Champion award was the Beachburg Agricultural Society (BAS) nomination. “Adrian is the kind of person every rural commu-

Still time to reply to town’s CIP survey News - Renfrew residents still have time to answer the Town of Renfrew’s Community Improvement Plan (CIP) survey. Copies are available at www.town.renfrew.on.ca or at the town hall. The survey has been available since late October. Completed surveys must be returned by 4 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 29. The town is seeking input from the public to develop objectives and programs for a proposed CIP. The survey is available by clicking on the Community Improvement Plan link on the home page of the town website. That same link provides access to copies of the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing’s PowerPoint pre-

sentation earlier this fall. Page one of the survey asks Renfrew residents to rank in order of importance seven potential community improvement activities, namely promoting: improved building facades; cleanup and redevelopment of brownfield properties; enhancement of designated heritage buildings; improved energy efficiency standards for residential, commercial, industrial or other uses; construction of residential units to increase density; the improvement of businesses to remove barriers which may restrict accessibility; and development and construction activity within a CIP area by rebating planning application fees and building permit fees.

nity would want to have,” says the nomination. The same document credits Vereyken with throwing his support behind investments that have resulted in upgraded facilities and the fair’s growing popularity. For example, the nomination letter says the fair president literally threw his weight behind changes to the exhibition hall: “This building has lots of character, but required considerable overhaul to make it more usable. Adrian encouraged them … to make the renovation of this building a

major focus for the spring and summer of 2013. Adrian arranged for a local electrician to make major repairs to the electrical systems (at a cost of more than $10,000) … then personally cut pine trees in his bush lot and engaged a portable sawmill to turn these into attractive rough pine board (which was used to cover the hall’s interior walls).” The president’s encouragement of the monster truck show is also paying dividends. Attendance reached 9,513 this year, compared to an already

satisfying 5,410 in 2012. “In summary,” the BAS nomination reads, “Adrian is a huge asset to the Beachburg Agricultural Society and the Beachburg community. “He continues to make the contributions needed for the BAS to look forward and prosper at a time when some community fairs are struggling.” Beachburg Fair board members Sherrie Mackay and Ronalee McRae were on hand to see Vereyken recognized as Canadian Fair Champion.

ARE YOU SEEKING A FAMILY PHYSICIAN? A message from the Renfrew & Area Health Services Village Individuals and families without a family physician are finding it very confusing when it comes to the process to follow to obtain a family physician. Here are some points to help guide you: 1) If your family physician has given notice of his or her intent to close their practice you may de roster and take your file. Doing so will enable you to go on the provincial wait list through Health Care Connect (1-800-4451822). However, until such time as you are successful in obtaining a new family doctor you are without a physician and you would depend on other medical treatment venues such as the hospital emergency. 2) If you choose to stay with a retiring family physician until the actual closure date of the practice, you can continue to see that physician but because you have not de rostered from the retiring physician, you can NOT register with Health Care Connect to go on the Provincial wait list for a new family physician. 3) If you are already without a family physician it is highly recommended that you contact Health Care Connect to go on the provincial wait list as most family physicians take new patients from the provincial lists. The Renfrew & Area Health Services Village is a not for profit organization whose mandate includes the recruitment of new physicians. The communities’ financial support has been instrumental in bringing many new physicians to the area and your ongoing support will help to ensure that we are able to continue this essential service in the community. Donations to this valuable program are most appreciated. See our website at www.renfrewareahealthvillage.ca or call (613) 432-3328.

Dillabough receives youth philanthropy award Candlelighters

Community On Wednesday Nov. 13 at a Gala event hosted by AFP (Association of Fund Raising Professionals) at the Westin Hotel in Ottawa, Paige Dillabough was honoured and awarded the very prestigious 2013 Outstanding Youth Philanthropy Award. The Renfrew teenager was nominated for the award by Jocelyn Lamont, executive director of the Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Support Programs Inc. for her fundraising and awareness efforts for childhood cancer and other charities. The nomination was supported by letters from Barb Desilets of Renfrew Victoria Hospital, Mike Wright and Cheryl Barber from Renfrew Collegiate Institute, and Sarah Brandon from CHEO (Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario). Lamont’s introduction of Paige and her story didn’t leave a dry eye in the place Paige was given a standing ovation going up to the stage, and then after her heartfelt speech and humorous anecdotes, she was given another standing ovation as she left the stage. “It was a night I will never forget!” Paige said. The keynote speaker at the event was the inspi-

rational Master Corporal Jody Mitic (well known for his second-place finish on the Amazing Race Canada) who told his story about losing his limbs after stepping on a bomb during active duty in Afghanistan. Master-Cpl. Mitic returned home with a new purpose; to help others who had lost limbs. Mitic has co-found the Never Quit Foundation, raising money and awareness for adaptive living, and taking wounded soldiers, first responders injured in the line of duty and amputee children to special events. His speech was empowering and very surreal. When asked what the highlight of the evening was, Dillabough said it was when Master Cpl. Mitic came up to her at the end of the night and told her that she was now HIS inspiration to NOT QUIT on those difficult days that he still has. She was overwhelmed and completely thrilled when he tweeted out that sentiment the next day! Dillabough told the 400 plus in attendance that “she was honoured to be the recipient of the 2013 Youth Philanthropy Award” and gave everyone a warning, “I am not done yet! I am small, but I am very hard to say no to!”

Applications open Dec. 2 for Canada Summer Jobs News - The federal government will accept applications for the Canada Summer Jobs (CSJ) Program beginning Dec. 2 and closing Jan. 10, 2014. “For many years, Canada Summer Jobs (CSJ) has been helping employers create much-needed summer job opportunities for students, while strengthening local economies and communities across Canada,” said RenfrewNipissing-Pembroke MP in a news release. She said the budget for the program has been increased by $10 million this year, and new timelines mean successful employers will be notified sooner and have more time to recruit students. Funding opportunities are available to not-for-profit organizations, public-sector employers and small businesses with 50 or fewer employees under the CSJ program. Applicants must create summer job opportunities for young people aged 15 to 30 years, who are full-time students intending to return to their studies in the next school year. “If you have hired a student in the past, you know how productive it can be for your organization to have summer help. “If you have not hired a student before, I encourage you to consider applying for CSJ funding to hire a student for next summer,” said Gallant

Special price, special truck for fire department Dr. Collins retiring in spring Steve Newman

steve.newman@metroland.com

Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

Admaston-Bromley Mayor Raye-Anne Briscoe, who chairs the Renfrew and Area Health Services Village, suggests the organization’s efforts to recruit more family physicians to the area won’t end any time soon. She says RAHSV efforts to recruit 14 physicianseven of whom have been recruited since 2010, is needed more than ever, after learning that Renfrew physician John Collins is retiring at the end of May 2014. Dr. Collins has the county’s largest medical practices, with more than 1,500 patients, said Briscoe at the Nov. 21 meeting of AdmastonBromley council. “He’s brought a lot of babies into the world, and I think he’s now bringing in babies of babies,” said Briscoe, who wishes Collins a wonderful retirement. The phone at the RAHSV office in Renfrew was busy last week, after patients of Dr. Collins received notification of his impending retirement. They wanted to know how to go about securing access to a new family physician. Since RAHSV helps provide an incentive bonus of $150,000 to each doctor recruited, Briscoe said the Health Services Village welcomes donations from businesses and members of the public.

The body was made in the South Dakota city of Lyons, the chassis was built in the Minnesota municipality of Wyoming, and the aerial ladder comes from Freemont, Nebraska. But the entire $860,000 platform fire truck has found a home in Renfrew after Renfrew Fire Department labelling was completed by ResQtech, a fire apparatus and distribution company in Woodstock, Ont. The truck was inspected in Lyons in early November, driven to Woodstock for final touch-ups, then delivered late Monday afternoon, Nov. 18, by ResQtech driver Paul Innis. The new 45-foot Rosenbauer truck comes with a hefty price tag, but the investment should pay long-term dividends. It’s also a good price, judging from what other municipalities have paid for new trucks recently, says Renfrew Fire Chief Guy Longtin. “We’re providing them with the tools that are necessary to do the job,” said Andrew Evans, the town councillor who chairs the fire committee, during an informal viewing by council members Nov. 18. The new platform truck was also the focus of attention for Renfrew Fire Department’s open house Saturday afternoon (Nov. 23). The new truck was parked on Railway Avenue, between the fire department and municipal hall, as part of an open house from 1 to 4 p.m. Children and adults were welcomed to attend the display of the department’s major pieces of equipment. The other equipment on view included the 1987 reserve fire truck,

National standards recommend a department’s front-line truck not exceed 25 years in age. At present, the reserve aerial truck, now 26 years old, is performing adequately, says Chief Longtin. “I would not want to have a firefighter up that ladder, but it’s a good elevated water supply,” he said of the reserve truck’s 75-foot ladder. As for the new platform truck, it’s superior in so many ways, says Longtin. Not only does the new truck have a 104-

foot ladder, but driving capacity is six firefighters, compared to three for its predecessor. There are also many safety features, including cameras on both sides and the back end of the truck, and numerous air bags. The ladder also has a platform at the end with a weight capacity of 1,000 pounds, or enough to handle two firefighters and two or three rescued individuals. The reserve truck has no bucket or platform at ladder’s end. The Renfrew Fire Department also used Saturday’s open house to recruit. With 11 fulland 13 part-time firefighters, it would like to increase its volunteer contingent to 16.

Admaston-Bromley reeling from funding changes Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com News - Council members may be hard pressed to provide adequate services in Admaston-Bromley in 2014 after learning next year’s anticipated revenues will drop by about $125,000. That’s a fair chunk of change for a township with an annual operating budget of less than $2 million, said Mayor Raye-Anne Briscoe at the Nov. 21 council meeting. This shortfall, she said, is a result of two major decisions. Firstly, the provincial government has just decided to eliminate compensation to municipalities through the farm tax rebate program that has existed since the 1960s. Over the last several years, Admaston-Bromley has been owed about $225,000 in annual farm tax rebates, but has normally received closer to $25,000, said clerk-treasurer Annette Louis. Farmers used to receive about 75 per cent tax rebates from the government, but since 1998 rebates at a much lower level have been sent to the municipality while farmers and owners of managed forests paid only 25 per cent of the normal residential tax rate. The second major decision is the drop in Ontario Municipal Partnership Fund support. The AdmastonBromley annual allocation is dropping by $98,500, to $595,700, for 2014. Total OMPF funding to Renfrew County municipalities is falling only

0.2 per cent, from $12.55 million to $12.52 million, but funding is dropping for seven municipalities. Admaston-Bromley OMPF dollars are being cut by 16.5 per cent, while the loss is more than $100,000, or 17 to 19 per cent, for Deep River, Laurentian Valley and North Algona Wilberforce. Greater Madawaska’s support is dropping by 14.7 per cent (or $68,400), while Horton Township’s is rising nine per cent (or $19,000). Renfrew’s funding remains the same, at $1.6 million, while Bonnechere Valley is receiving an 8.3 per cent increase, from $1.14 million to $1.24 million. At a Renfrew County finance committee meeting last week, Briscoe was told one of the reasons for the drop in OMPF dollars is Admaston-Bromley residents’ higher-than-average gross wages. The loss of revenue isn’t good news, by any stretch. “We are probably going to be reducing services,� said Admaston-Bromley Coun. Michael Donohue. “I don’t know this for sure, but these are significant revenue reductions.� When there’s a shortfall of funding and a desire to provide the same level of services, the taxpayers must make up the difference, said Briscoe. “We’ve got a lot of considerations and things to think about in the budget of 2014,� she said. “We’ve all known, for several years, that the threat has been in place and

What has now changed is they’re paying for it 100 per cent, one way or another.â€?

“We’re very, very sad, because we were going into a week of perfect snowmaking,� she said. “And the snow made the two days before the fire was beautiful. To be successful in this industry, as you know, you have to have a comprehensive snow-making system, which we do.� Some of the machinery in the snow-making building is salvageable, while some will have to be replaced, added Murphy. The pump house contains the water pumps as well as the electrical transformer and distribution system for snow-making. “We’re happy no one was hurt. Although it was a significant structural fire, it doesn’t leave a lasting impression,� said Greater Madawaska Mayor Peter Emon. The next steps, said Liz Murphy, are evaluation of the situation, recovery and working hard to get up the ski mountain up and running. The fire call came at 6:07 a.m. Sunday, and firefighters were on the scene by 6:21 a.m. About 20 firefighters from the Griffith or Calabogie stations of the Greater Madawaska Fire Department, and an-

other six firefighters from McNab-Braeside, were on the scene. Renfrew County paramedics were also onsite, where the firefighters were at first restricted from watering down the fire because of live Hydro One electrical connections to the building. Gusting winds also made the fire problematic. However, Hydro One officials were on site within about an hour of the 9-1-1 call, and quickly disconnected electrical power to the building, says Greater Madawaska fire chief Dave Murphy. The fire chief called the situation highly-electrically charged. Firefighters could only properly tackle the fire with the help of an excavator, that took apart sections of the building so it could be properly extinguished. The owners are also thanking the ski community for its support. “We’re working hard to get things resolved,� said co-owner Liz Murphy, “and we say thank-you for their outpouring of support on social media.� Meanwhile, she says Calabogie Peaks Resort remains open for conferences, weddings, meals and accommodation. “It’s just the mountain piece that is missing right now, but with any luck we’ll be making snow soon.�

EDITORIAL

Shop local this Christmas Christmas is still weeks away, but for some the bragging has already begun. “I’ve finished all my Christmas shopping already and it was done online ... no crowds, no fuss, no muss.” You hear it in the coffee shops, you read it on Facebook. Kudos to you, early shoppers. Now you can sit back, relax and enjoy the real reason for the season. But really, should you be doing all your shopping online? Okay, in these modern times, shopping without leaving home is a reality. And you can find some decent buys online. But be smart about it and don’t get involved with scam artists or substandard items. Certainly if you’re in the big city, avoiding the festive crowds at the malls can be a major motivation to quietly shop from the solitude of home. However, it’s not everyone’s cup of tea. Some people love the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season and the search for the perfect gift. There is a great deal to enjoy by going out: the lights, decorations and the creatively crafted store windows and storefronts.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Pension clarification To the editor: As a funeral director, over the past months I have received a number of questions about certain letters that have been appearing in our mailboxes. People have told me that they have received mailings that may appear to be from the Government of Canada, related to coverage for funeral expenses. Some of these may be sent in brown envelopes with a maple leaf on them, resembling government envelopes. They may carry “important” notices regarding a “supplement to Canada Pension Benefits” or a similar message. I feel it is important to address the confusion that exists about these mailings, so consumers can make the best decision for their needs. The mailings that I have personally observed are legitimate offers for life insurance, sent from insurance companies. It is important to note, however, that they are not from or affiliated with the Canada Pension Plan, or the Government of Canada. Funeral homes offer similar insurance products to fund funeral expenses, along with a number of other options. The most important difference for the consumer is that when they deal directly with a local funeral home, their costs are locked in and guaranteed for the future. This often results in significant savings in the long term. Consumers can choose full or partial coverage, and can pay at once or over time. Prearrangements are transferable to another firm, and can be cancelled and refunded upon request. Perhaps just as importantly, when you pre-arrange with a funeral home, all of your final wishes are recorded, not just the funding for them. I hope this will help to resolve any confusion that exists. If you have any further questions, please contact your funeral director. Matthew Brydges McPhail & Perkins Funeral Home Renfrew

8 The Renfrew Mercury EMC - Thursday, November 28, 2013

For Christmas shoppers, particularly those living in smaller communities, there is another major reason for not doing all your Christmas shopping online. There are many reasons to instead support your local merchants, who are your neighbours and fellow taxpayers. If they prosper, they help you pay the taxes and fees that keep your town or township humming along. Your local business people are also the one who support your teams, schools, youth groups, service clubs, hospitals, cultural offerings, food banks and a myriad of other community organizations and campaigns that contribute so much to an area’s lifestyle. It certainly isn’t the online seller sponsoring soccer teams, providing door prizes for fundraisers, allowing the Salvation Army to set up its kettle and Angel tree outside its doors, holding fundraisers for student activities and trips, and collecting food and donations for the food bank. No, it’s your friendly local businesses. They support you and yours. So don’t forget them this Christmas season when you’re preparing your gift list and checking it twice.

and Children’s Aid Societies across Ontario spread the message that it takes a community to keep children and youth safe. From people who call Children’s Aid out of concern for a child’s well-being to community partners who work alongside Children’s Aid to help keep children safe, we all have a role to play in protecting the most vulnerable members of our society. Arijana Tomicic, executive director Family and Children’s Services of Renfrew County

amputees like me. In addition to having had the privilege of learning about Canada’s military heritage from a young age, I also know what it is like to live without a limb – a strong bond that I share with war amputee veterans. Because of this, I feel it is my duty to ensure that the stories of war are preserved and its lessons never forgotten. Operation Legacy is a commitment to preserving our national military heritage, and by doing so, we honour the men and women who have fought for us – even given their lives – to protect our rights and freedoms. And by passing on the stories of horror that these heroes have endured, it reminds us that war is something we never wish to face again. We remember that is better to

choose peace over war and that standing up for what we believe in is what makes us Canadians. Champs in Operation Legacy wish to spread this message not only to the adults whose parents perhaps lived through war, or left a war-torn country to come to Canada, but also our youth, as they will be the ones who need to pass on the remembrance to the next generation so that we ensure that the legacy of our veterans is never forgotten. I encourage everyone – particularly young people – to learn more through The War Amps Military Heritage Series documentaries, which are available at a cost-recovery price at waramps.ca.

Reopening welcomed for Calabogie boaters News - The boat launch at Heritage Point on Lanark Road in Calabogie will be open in the spring of 2014. Greater Madawaska land use planner Marko Cekic informed council Nov. 12. Coun. Bruno Kierczak suggested some improvements around the boat launch and parking lot. “We talked about boat safety. Do we need a dock there?” he asked. “We had an individual that came here (to council) offering the services of a chip wagon. Do we consider something like that to make better use of that area?” Perhaps businesses could support the boat launch by con-

tributing dollars to make that area more of a park, Kierczak added. Coun. Brian Hunt said council set out a year ago to refurbish washrooms, and suggested that it be brought forward again. “We certainly have to do something about washrooms over there.” AORS TRADE SHOW

Council heard from Steve Boland, chairman of the Association of Ontario Road Superintendents (AORS) Municipal Trade Show, which takes place in Arnprior June 4 and 5, 2014. “It is one of the largest trade shows of its kind in Canada, and draws in excess of 2,000 participants and 200 exhibitors,” Boland said. The trade showcases prod-

ucts, services, materials and technologies available to public works staff. “It is an opportunity for staff and council to get in touch with some of the suppliers and other folks involved in our industry, and promote what you have here in the Township of Greater Madawaska,” Boland added. Brantford hosted the trade show last year, and it was last held in Renfrew County in 1992 at Petawawa. PREMIER AWARDS

Information on the 2014 Premier Awards for Excellence in the Arts has been put up on the Greater Madawaska Township website. These awards recognize artists and arts organizations for their outstanding achievements

and contributions that breathe life into communities, help drive innovation, and strengthen local economies, deputy clerk Lindsay Taniwa noted. Finalists are selected by an Ontario Arts Council (OAC) jury from submitted nominations by Ontarians. Two awards are presented yearly, an artist award of $35,000, and arts organization award of $50,000. Individuals and arts organizations engaged in any professional arts practice in Ontario whose artistic work or service spans at least 10 years are eligible. Program details and nomination forms are available on the OAC website, which can be accessed through the Greater Madawaska Township website. The nomination deadline is Dec. 2.

Create law to ban exotic, non-domestic animals, says council Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

Admaston-Bromley council has unanimously endorsed a Municipality of Tweed motion that calls for the federal and provincial governments to legislate a law to prohibit the sale, keeping, exhibition and transportation of exotic, wild and non-domestic animals in Ontario and across Canada. Admaston-Bromley council members noted, during its Nov. 21 meeting, that it doesn’t possess the expertise to oversee or the time to monitor the issue. “I believe it to be a large concern, but it shouldn’t be the responsibility of the municipality,” said Coun. Michael Donohue. “Of course, we know what can happen in our municipality,” said Coun. Ray Pender, alluding to last summer’s SPCA raid at a McPeak Line residence to remove a few dozen exotic animals. Admaston-Bromley’s own bylaw already bans exotic animals, but the mayor wonders if it’s of any use because it can’t be enforced. Tweed’s resolution notes there is no provincial legislation to prevent ownership of exotic animals and that recent close encounters with dangerous animals resulted in the loss of two young lives. The reference was to brothers ages four and six who were reported strangled last summer in their sleep by a 16-foot python. The African Rock Python escaped into their Campbellton, N.B., apartment from a pet store on the floor below. The snake was already banned in the province of New Brunswick.. “Thousands of dangerous species are kept illegally, violating local bylaws, in private homes or apartments,” states the resolution. There have also been a number of cases in and around Renfrew County of illegal, exotic animals being kept in residential premises. Tweed’s resolution, which was

passed in September 2013, prohibits the keeping, exhibition and transportation of exotic, wild and non-domestic animals within that municipality. FUNDING FOR RANGER PROGRAM

Admaston-Bromley council also unanimously endorsed a Township of Uxbridge motion that calls for the provincial government to restore funding for the Ontario Ranger Pro-

gram in 2014. Cancellation of funding for the 70-year program “does a disservice to public services in Ontario and to those who have come to admire and respect the natural beauty of our province,” says the resolution. The resolution, which has been sent to Premier Kathleen Wynne and Minister of Natural Resources David Orazietti, says cancellation of the Ontario Ranger Program (ORP) in September 2012 was

made with the argument that the Stewardship Youth Ranger Program would deliver the same experience and offer more jobs. The resolution states the stewardship day program does not offer the same quality of experience that youth gained under the previous ORP, especially in the area of resource management. JOB LOSSES

that since 2012, 278 Ontario ranger jobs have been lost and that half of the rangers were students in large urban centres. The current Stewardship Youth Ranger Program, says the resolution, is just not accessible to students in urban centres.

Come back to the ‘60s for some fun

New investigator for closed meetings

Are you a child of the 1960s? Do you remember slapstick, laugh-in comedy, the British Invasion, and the musical stylings of Petula Clark, Dusty Springfield and many others? If you find yourself wishing to relive those crazy days, let the Opeongo High School Musical Society transport you back in time to the Swinging Sixties in London, England, with their rendition of the Broadway revue of Shout! The Mod Musical. This hilarious musical, playing Nov. 28, 29 and 30 at Opeongo High School, is sure to please all ages, but is dedicated to those who fondly remember the decade known for women’s liberation, civil rights and wild fashion.

Shout features six women; five leads (known only by their colour preferences) and one secondary character (Gwendolyn Holmes). All undergo drastic changes in their personal lives and in their fashion choices. Bringing this musical onto their high school stage are Cassie Smyth (orange girl), Amber Dagenais (green girl), Alyssa Boudreau (blue girl), Samantha Savage (red girl), Sarah Verch (yellow girl) and Brittany Priebe (advice columnist Gwendolyn Holmes). There are also go-go dancers who will keep the audience moving and grooving with our songs, and audience participation is highly encouraged! The musical director is Vicki Luhta; the director and producer Jodie Armstrong-Gagnon.

Horton Township will employ local retired clerk Robert Rantz, who worked in Petawawa, as its closedmeetings investigator. Horton uses Local Authority Services Ltd. (LAS), which was created in 1992 by the Association of Municipalities of Ontario as a wholly-owned subsidiary company, but its two-year contract expires at year’s end. CAO Mackie McLaren says the township will save money by dropping the two-year retainer of $330 paid to LAS. This is the sixth year Horton has used LAS. Rantz will follow up any public allegations that Horton council has gone into closed session for reasons other than those permitted under the Ontario Municipal Act. Harvest Supper: Revenue for Horton’s harvest supper Oct. 26 was $2,600. After expenses, Horton’s profit margin was $1,400. A total of 186 people, plus volunteers, attended the supper at the Horton Community Centre.

Renfrew County paramedics prepare for another generous Christmas season Peter Clark peter.clark@metroland.com

Community - The County of Renfrew Paramedic Service will be doing its part to make Christmas better for all again this year. The third annual food and toy drive will be held at the Renfrew Wal-Mart on Friday, Dec. 6. The food and toy drive is in support of the Renfrew and District Food Bank, and the Salvation Army Christmas

Hamper program. Paramedic volunteers will be stationed at the front doors of Wal-Mart to collect new unwrapped toys, food and cash donations. The food and toy drive runs from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. “Help us ensure that local children and families have a Merry Christmas,” says a county paramedics press release. The previous two years combined raised $7,030 in do-

nations, 1,535 food items and 577 toys. The County of Renfrew paramedics also got their Christmas season off to a good boost as State Farm Insurance in Renfrew donated teddy bears to comfort kids. Acting district manager Steve Osipenko thanked State Farm owner Judy Perry for her annual support. “State Farm has donated teddy bears for at least 10 years,” Osipenko noted.

Lake Dore property owners pitch in Community – In late October, the Lake Doré Property Owners Association met to present a cheque for $500 to the MRI: Image Matters Campaign, to help secure better healthcare for everyone. “We live in a rural area and really depend on the Pembroke Regional Hospital and this was a chance to invest in prompt healthcare. “We want the best available,” said Bernadette Scheuneman, president of the association. The bulk of the gift was allocated through proceeds from the Lake Dore Property Association’s membership fees. “It is a wonderful oppor-

tunity to use part of our fees towards a charitable cause that gives back to our community and neighbours. “The MRI campaign is a cause every member was looking forward to supporting.” Secretary Heather Saar continued, “The idea was brought up at our annual meeting, and the homeowners are excited to support this incredible cause ultimately each other. “This is a challenge to other home owner associations to better improve rural healthcare access.” The MRI: Image Matters Campaign has already raised over $3.1 million of its $4.5 million dollar goal.

With an MRI within the Renfrew County region, more than 102,000 people will have access to this important tool. Receiving the cheque was donor relations co-ordinator Gregory Junop. “As a regional hospital, the MRI will truly serve all of Renfrew County. “Support from community groups like this demonstrates the ability for all of us to participate in improving healthcare access,” he said. If you have a fundraising idea or event, or for more information, please contact the Foundation office at 613 732 2811, ext. 7408 or email foundation@pemreghos.org

Christmas with RAG members Diana Wakely Renfrew Art Guild

We are now at the beginning of December, the busiest time of the year. No matter what ever your religious background, our lives become a whirlwind. We shop, we decorate, we bake, we party and we eat. Artists through the centuries have painted the Nativity and will continue to do so. Take the time to Google the birth of Christ and you can see some wonderful images painted so long ago. One beautiful depiction is Federico Barocciâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s The Birth of Christ 1597 shows a young Mary and an excited Joseph in the birth of his son. One of the other bits of history is St. Francis of Assisi is recorded having the first Nativity or crèche in 1223. However you celebrate the season, take time to enjoy those around you.

Gallant’s constituents choose choice

Christmas bingo at Groves Park

Conservative MP Gallant said her constituents have been vocal about having more choice with the television packages than what is currently being offered by providers. “Our government believes Canadian families should be able to choose the combination of television channels they want,” she said.

Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant’s constituents believe in freedom of choice, when it comes to television viewing. Gallant rose in the House of Commons Nov. 20 to call attention to comments made by a television company’s president criticizing the Government of Canada’s initiative on unbundling of TV channels.

OPP thanking motorists ahead of Festive RIDE campaign but not getting their guard down with impaired drivers Ontario Provincial Police

compliance with impaired driving laws, their awareness of the risks and their willingness to be a part of the solution,” he said. The OPP is also reminding drivers that there is no safe amount of alcohol consumption when driving. This is evident every year in the number of warn range suspensions the OPP issues to drivers whose blood alcohol concentration (BAC) falls within the 0.05 to 0.08 range. Over the last two Festive RIDE campaigns (2011 and 2012), OPP officers issued a total of 1,208 warn range Suspensions over and above the 1,375 impaired driving charges they laid throughout the province. Those who are issued a warn range suspension immediately lose their licence at the roadside and are not allowed to drive from that point on for a minimum of three days. The OPP is asking the public to join in on the conversation on Facebook during the campaign. Share your thoughts, stories and personal experiences with impaired drivers/driving, as well as any positive stories about people you encounter over the holidays whose actions and decisions about drinking and driving contribute to a safe holiday season on our roads.

News - The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is taking the rare step of thanking Ontario drivers ahead of their 2013 Festive RIDE (Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere) campaign for not driving impaired over the holidays and for helping them get impaired drivers off our roads. The reason for the early thank you is because the OPP knows that the vast majority of drivers do understand that enforcement is only part of the solution and that driving sober is the single most important factor in ending the numerous impaired driving related deaths that occur on Ontario roads every year. The OPP considers these drivers to be among their most dedicated road safety partners because they share the responsibility of saving lives on our roads through responsible driving behaviour. The campaign runs from Nov. 23 to Jan. 2, 2014. According to the OPP, the public can expect to see as many OPP Festive R.I.D.E. stops as ever during this year’s campaign, in order to deal with the relatively small number of drivers who choose to get an impaired driving charge over the simpler and less costly solution of not getting behind the wheel after consuming al-

cohol. Unfortunately, the irresponsible behaviour of one driver can negatively affect the lives of many. “I am calling on all road users to help us keep everyone safe over the holidays,” said Chief Superintendent Don Bell, Commander, OPP Highway Safety Division. “Never allow yourself to drink and drive, never allow someone you suspect is impaired by alcohol or drugs to drive and if you are out on the road and suspect that a driver is impaired, call 9-1-1,” he said. “I would like to thank in advance the hundreds of thousands of drivers we know we can count on to take these simple but important measures to help us get everyone through the holiday safely,” he added. “Our most recent national statistics tell us that there were 90,277 impaired driving incidents in Canada in 2011 and I am proud to say that Ontario had one of the lowest impaired driving rates among all of the provinces that year,” said Deputy Commissioner Larry Beechey, Provincial Commander, Traffic Safety and Operational Support. “We attribute this to a combination of targeted police enforcement and education efforts by all safety partners, combined with the motoring public’s generally favourable

NATURE

Connected to your community

Tree sparrows arrive on Wade Avenue in Renfrew Jack and Jane Clark had a small flock of tree sparrows arrive at their home on Wade Avenue last Friday. The birds were feeding on juniper berries just outside the Clark’s front window. This sparrow travels to our feeders from their breeding grounds on the shores of Hudson Bay and James Bay for the winter. The tree sparrow’s most conspicuous field marks are the chestnut crown and eye stripe, two white wing bars, a dark central breast spot and a yellow lower mandible. Tree sparrows are feeder birds and the flocks of six to 10 birds will stay with us until they return to their breeding grounds in the north. The Clarks also have seen a number of Bohemian waxwings that are making their annual visit to the buckthorn berries and hawthorn berries that border Wade Avenue and Opeongo Road. SNOW GEESE

Terry Cunningham looked out his front window one morning this past week and to his surprise there were five snow geese sitting on the ice in

JIM FERGUSON Scene from the Hawk’s Eye the bay at White Lake. He said he wished he had seen them settle on the frozen lake but he missed that event. He has seen them on other occasions and it was a rather funny sight: tumbling head over heels, wings and legs going in every direction. It is very late for snow geese to be still in the area. But, as usual when dealing with Nature never say never GRAY JAYS

Sandra Zappa has been following the habits of two gray jays since early spring. The birds have been feeding, and we hope raising young in a small mixed copse of trees on Pucker Street. This jay is known for its friendly ways and its ability to steal food out of a person’s hand. They are common in Algonquin Park but un-

common this far south and not nearly as bold. They are a bird we should be watching for this winter. We have found that a small fire of pine needles and dry twigs will bring the jays and chickadees in to investigate very quickly. Give it a try if you are out hiking or skiing. MERGANSERS AND GEESE

Jane and Andy Smith live across the river from the boat launch on the Bonnechere River west of Renfrew. They say that common mergansers and Canada geese are still feeding and will do so until the river freezes over. Mergansers have remained all winter in the open water between the lower powerhouse and the sewage disposal plant in Renfrew. There has also been a single Canada goose, although injured, survive all winter in the open water with some hand-outs from concerned citizens. SANDHILL CRANES

Margaret Howard phoned this week and said that her son J.B. arrived in the house with news that

there were several sandhill cranes feeding in the corn stubble on their farm. It is certainly late for these birds to be still in the area but if there is food available, corn and soy beans, the birds will stay until the ground and the food is covered with snow. Margaret remarked that the cranes have a loud, bugling call that could be heard from quite a distance away. If the birds are flying their call is a very good way to identify them. Watch for the birds in the Cobden area.

JIM FERGUSON

American tree sparrow at feeder. SNOW BUNTINGS CEDAR WAXWINGS

Ken Ott saw a large flock of snow buntings in the Douglas area this past week. This species seems to appear out of nowhere. The least disturbance and the flock soars into the air, right in front of you as if directed by a conductor, turning and twisting before settling down to feed a short distance away. They feed in any area where weed stalks poke through the snow. They travel in waves hopping over one another as they scramble forward to get the weed seeds. A great sight to see.

Bob and Susan English had a flock of cedar waxwings arrive in their yard to feed on hawthorn berries and the fruit of a Japanese yew bush. The birds remained for three days before moving on. Purple finches, goldfinches, dark-eyed juncos and cardinals are regular visitors at Bob and Susan’s feeders.

If something looks a little off on the new directional signs along Highway 17, that’s because two of them carry a spelling error. The two signs on Highway 17 West just before O’Brien Road direct travellers to Renfrew’s “Businsess Section.” According to the Ministry of Transportation, the sign has only been up for a couple of weeks and will be fixed within a week or so.

LHIN offers assisted-living services for high-risk seniors Community - To help keep seniors healthy and independent at home for as long as possible, the Champlain LHIN has made assistedliving services a priority. The assisted-living model aligns with the Champlain LHIN’s goal of caring for more seniors in the community, and is part of a larger LHIN plan to improve seniors’ health services. The assisted-living program serves seniors with complex needs who lack adequate social supports. Clients receive personal support and homemaking in their homes on a 24-hour basis, along with urgent-call response and care coordination. The program, which accepts clients coming from the community or the hospital, is delivered by personal support workers and care coordinators. Research reviewed by the LHIN has shown the benefits of this approach. For example, the Balance of Care study conducted in 2009 found that up to a third of people currently on the wait list for a long-term care home could live in a supportive housing environment. Assisted-living services have proven to be successful in making a positive impact on the health system, reducing the rate of emergency room visits among clients. As well, the extra community option means more hospital patients who have completed

their treatment can be discharged home sooner with supports in place. Two providers from Renfrew County spoke to Champlain LHIN Board members about how the assisted-living program works, and its advantages. Kim Rodgers, administrator of North Renfrew Long-Term Care Services, explained that the 30-space program in Deep River focuses on clients’ needs. “We ask our clients: what do you need to stay at home today? Maybe it’s a bath. Maybe it’s help putting up a Christmas tree.” Rodgers told the story of a client that refused admission to a long-term care home because the family decided it could manage well at home with assisted-living services. Katherine Blomquist, care co-ordinator for Barry’s Bay Home Support, repeated the importance of the client-centred approach. “Clients can schedule visits at 8 p.m.,” she said. “We can visit clients in their homes at 3 a.m., if they have fallen and can’t get up. Over time, we find out what a good day looks like, what a bad day looks like. We respect their right to live the way they want to live.” The Barry’s Bay agency runs a 20-space assisted-living program. Two models exist in Champlain for assistedliving services – congregate, where clients stay in the same building, and non-congregate, in which clients live in their individual homes. During the past five years, the LHIN has created and funded 537 new assisted-living spaces throughout the region.

Last Thursday evening, the “town square” in SJHS was packed with families, friends and community members enjoying an evening of performances at the Fall Coffee House. The Jazz Band,

Blues Guys, and the SJHS Choir all performed well rehearsed numbers. Much work is put into these groups by dedicated teachers. The Coffee House is a venue for both amateur performers and

seasoned veterans. It is a chance to step outside of a comfort zone and enjoy the positive atmosphere. Biannually for the past seven years, St. Joe’s has opened its doors to the community this way

R0271950802

Events - Feasts in the middle ages were occasions of great excess in all areas, from food to pageantry. Often such feasts were held to celebrate the holiday season, a wedding or other grand event. The first-ever medieval feast for this area is taking place Friday, Nov. 29, starting at 7 p.m., at the Masonic Hall in Arnprior. Organized by the just-formed McNab Celtic Heritage Society, the feast comes one day before St. Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day (Scotlandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s patron saint) and about three weeks before Christmas. So why attend this St. Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day Medieval Feast? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great opportunity to dine in the manner of many of our forebears. After all, most of us living in this area can trace our roots back to the English, Scottish, Irish, Welsh or even Scandinavians. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to pay homage to my own lineage. My paternal grandmotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family by the name of Grieve hailed from Scotland and actually settled at Scotch Corners near Almonte before heading to St. Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in southern Ontario, where their skills as stonemasons were put to good use in that famous limestone town. My paternal grandfatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family - Lang - came from York, which was invaded and settled by the

Danish Vikings. And my maternal family, Simonsen, who are Danish, can trace their roots to the Vikings themselves. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re fascinated with all that is medieval - and you wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be alone - this is a perfect opportunity to take part in our very own medieval celebration. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re seeing a rise in popularity in re-enactments of long-ago battles, and the conquests that took place during the Middle Ages continue to enthrall. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to dress up, by all means, go for it. You can make your own costume, or you may be able to find something for rent from Dianne Rochon in Arnprior (613-623-8891) or Marlene Schaly near Burnstown. Tickets cost $25 each (children under 12 are free). All proceeds are going to the new McNab Celtic Heritage Society, which is being formed to put on Celtic-inspired events. Buy your ticket soon as theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re starting to get snapped up and organizers need final numbers for the feast (tickets available at Jimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Restaurant in Arnprior or in Renfrew at Fraserâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Clothing and M&R, as well as by calling 613-623-3614 or 613-432-6271). Hope to see you at the Masonic Hall in Arnprior on Nov. 29. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be sure to raise my mug to you!

Mary Campbell pours a drink into Heather Langâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goblet as Rose Ann MacLaren looks on. All three are members of the newly-formed McNab Celtic Heritage Society, which is hosting a Medieval Feast in Arnprior Nov. 29 to celebrate St. Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day. A five-course meal (duck nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; leek soup, braised leg of cock, roastitt meats and vegetables, tarts and sweets, and fruit and cheeses) will be dished out by servers in monk costumes and eaten off medieval feastware. Robert Carr will be emcee and Rev. Leo and Margaret Hughes will be the Laird and his wife for the evening.

Events - An Ottawa Valley soprano hailed for her smooth and lovely voice and a composer with a link to the Pembroke area will be featured at the Deep River Symphony Orchestraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s upcoming concert Dec. 7. Soprano Kathleen Radke, based in Renfrew, is quickly establishing herself as an artist of note in the Ottawa area and beyond with performances ranging from Handelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Messiah, Haydnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lord Nelson Mass and Mozartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Requiem to operatic roles. Kathleen, who recently made her Carnegie Hall, studied with bassbaritone Daniel Lichti at Wilfred Laurier where she earned an Opera Diploma. She also received a bachelor of music and a performance diploma from McMaster University; and continues her studies in Ottawa with soprano Donna Brown. It is her operatic side that will be featured in the DRSO performance which will include Mozartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ach, ich fuhlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s es ist verschwunden from Magic Flute and Deh viene, non tardar from The Marriage of Figaro; as well as Straussâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Mein Herr Marquis from Die Fledermaus, also known as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the laughing songâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. One of the evening highlights will certainly be her performance of Cunegondeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coloratura aria Glitter and be gay from Leonard Bernsteinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Candide, a favourite showpiece for sopranos. Considered one of the most technically challenging soprano arias, it is theatrically demanding and contains numerous intricate passages. It promises to be a real treat and the rare chance to hear this fun piece. Keeping with the opera theme, the DRSO will perform the overtures from Magic Flute and Candide. The second half will feature Gustav Holstâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s A Sommerset Rhapsody composed in 1906 and based on three English folksong tunes: The Sheep-Shearing Song (also known as Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a Rosebud in June), High Ger-

HERITAGE

You made do or did without Mary Cook Memories

Lifestyle - How often I had begged Mother to find the few pennies it would take to buy just one bar of store-bought soap. But there was always a better place for her egg money, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d say. And besides, there was nothing wrong with the bars of home-made soap she churned out once or twice a year. As well as my loathing for the home-made soap, was my absolute dislike for the days Mother put aside to make it! That seemed to happen Spring and Fall. It couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be too hot, or too cold. Winter had yet to settle in that year I remember with such clarity. The summer kitchen was still being used to store things, but soon it would be too cold to be nothing more than a place to pile the wood. And once the snow came, it was through the summer kitchen we went to get rid of as much snow off our feet as possible, before coming into

the kitchen. Mother announced at breakfast that morning that Audrey and I were expected to hurry home from school because we would be putting supper on the table. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m making soap today,â&#x20AC;? she said. he had been saving lard from the fried bacon, roasted pork and anywhere else she could find a spoonful or two of fat. By the time the soap day rolled around, about four small honey pails of fat sat on an old table in the summer kitchen at the ready. The tin of Gilletteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lye was already bought at Scottâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hardware in Renfrew, and we children were warned every day not to even touch the tin it came in, so deadly it was! â&#x20AC;&#x153;Poison. And it will burn a finger to the bone,â&#x20AC;? Mother warned. Every time I walked through the summer kitchen, I looked at the yellow and black lettered tin of lye like it alone had started the First World War. The containers Mother used to make the soap were big square black tins, much like the cookie sheets that stood on edge in the bottom of the kitchen cupboard. But these were shallow, and much larger, and as black as your boot. Even before we went to school, Mother would have started into the soap making. The tins (usually there were at least three in use at a time) were spread out on the old wood table in the summer kitchen.

in a few drops of vanilla. That tray would be used for our baths and face-washing. My sister Audrey said the hardest part of soap making, was trying to blend the fats into the water and lye. Sometimes it took hours. And I would picture in my mind Mother with Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s old work gloves on, stirring and stirring and making sure not a drop would touch her skin. By the time we got home from school, the big black trays of lye, water and fat, would have gelled and hardened, at least that was Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hope. But sometimes, it seemed to take forever for the pans to set well enough to be cut into bars. And while that was happening, Mother constantly jumped up from the supper table and went out to the summer kitchen to press a finger to the mould to see if it was ready to cut. I could never figure out how the deadly lye could lose its power just by adding water and lard! And when it did (and I questioned the fact), it became the soap we would use in our baths on Saturday night, for washing our hands, shaved into slivers for doing the Monday washings, and for anything else that needed to be cleaned with soap and water. By the time the evening was well on its way, Mother would bring the trays onto the kitchen table which had been spread out with copies of The Renfrew Mercury, and with the sharpest

knife in the house, she would cut the soap into bars. Sadly, no matter how hard Mother worked to melt the lye, there was always a few pieces left that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t succumb to the hot water, and it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t unusual at all, when washing, to have a piece of lye scrape across your body, leaving a scratch like one made by a mad tom cat! My sister Audrey and I and Mother were the only ones to use the soap made with a dash of vanilla, but as far as I was concerned, the vanilla did little to take away the strong smell of Gilletteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lye. It would be a long time before Mother finally bought a bar of real soap, and it, I thought, smelled just as bad as what she had made. It was called Lifebuoy, it was bright red, and even my brother Emerson, who hated the lye soap as much as I did, said the Lifebuoy smelled only a bit better than the smell of the cow byre. And it lingered on your body for hours. One day Mother bought a bar of a new soap called Ivory. But it was for company, like Aunt Lizzie when she came from Regina, and when she left, it was wrapped in wax paper, and stored away until her next visit. So all through those Depression years, homemade lye soap was part of our lives, and very much a part of a time in our lives when you made do, or you did without.

The kettle would be boiling on the Findlay Oval, and Mother would take it to the summer kitchen and half-fill the black tins with hot water. I would always hope we would still be home when she added the lye. I both hated and was entranced with that step in soap-making. Mother would pry off the lid with a knife and evenly pour the lye over the hot water. And great gusts of steam would come off the tins, not from the hot water which would cool off almost immediately, but from the lye doing its dastardly deed with the water. There was an old wood spoon, with a very long handle, that was used for nothing else but stirring the lye into the water. It had a piece of binder twine through the little hole in the handle, and when not used for soap-making, hung in the summer kitchen, so that it wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t accidentally be used for something that would be put in our stomachs. The fact that Mother wore a pair of Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s old work gloves confirmed in my mind how deadly was the lye. We were never around long enough to see the next step, but we knew the little honey pails, which would have been sitting on the back of the cook stove to turn to liquid, would be brought close to the table, and once the lye had been melted into the hot water, the lard would have to be stirred into the mixture. Into one tray Mother would drop

Sports - In the spirit of Movember, several Renfrew and area runners took to a five-kilometre route from the Raglan Street-Renfrew Avenue West intersection at the town clock to Ma-Te-Way Park, and back, all in support of fighting men’s cancers. Ray Beimers, president of the Renfrew Chapter of the Canadian Cancer Society, pointed out that 9,000 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer this year, and 1,500 will die from it. Beimers added that women can make

a difference. Have the men in their lives get regular screenings, he said. “If detected early, prostate cancer can be beaten and you can go on with your life.” Renfrew marathoner Colleen Berry organized Saturday’s 5 for Fighting event. Participants paid $5 for the cause, and wore their favourite team jersey. They were also invited to wear a moustache, real or otherwise. Prizes included a draw for a Sherwood Movember Hockey Stick donated by Valley Source for Sports; and two awards sponsored by Kate Windle, the best (real) grown moustache and the best fake moustache.

Sports - One of the St. Joseph’s Jaguars best senior boys volleyball seasons in the school’s history came to an end in North Bay last Friday night. But they didn’t go down without a battle After dropping the first two sets 25-23, 25-14 to the Manitouwadge High School Wolverines in their Ontario (OFSAA) high school consolation round quarter final match for A schools, coach Trent Skelhorn’s crew fought off elimination with a dramatic 25-23 win over the Wolverines in the third set. However, no magic was left in the cards

for the Jaguars. Manitouwadge took home the fourth set 25-12 to end St. Joseph’s season. The Jaguars were in the middle of the OFSAA pack, pre-ranked No. 10 of 20 teams. They finished their five-team round-robin pool with a record of 1-and-3. Division matches were bestof-three contests. St. Joseph’s dropped a 25-14, 25-22 decision to Durham Christian High School, the No. 7 seed, before rebounding with a 25-12, 25-23 triumph over No. 17 Ecole Secondaire Marc Garneau in Thursday matches. On Friday, Woodland Christian High School (No. 4) topped the Jaguars 25-16, 25-20 in a morning encounter. See JAGUARS, page 34

Forget the Maple Leafs, it’s the Raptors working on a parade PETER CLARK Peter’s Putterings

Yonge Street has already been roped off four or five times now in anticipation of the Leafs’ 2013-14 Stanley Cup victory parade. But overshadowed by Mayor Rob Ford’s antics has been the play of the city’s real championship contender – the Toronto Raptors. Last Wednesday, Canada’s lone National Basketball Association franchise was 5-and-7 – FIRST! in

I fully expect to see an X in the standings beside their team name any day now, notifying us that the Raptors have clinched the coveted Atlantic Division regular season title and playoff spot that goes with it. Golfer Stuart Manley of Wales pulled off a rare feat, first good, then bad. Manley celebrated winning a Mercedes for hitting a hole-in-one,

only to then be denied the luxury vehicle. The car could only be won with an ace in the final round. On the next hole, Manley – who was second overall in the tournament at that stage – followed up his ace by taking a septuple-bogey 11 on his next hole. No one in the tournament recalled ever seeing a scorecard with three consecutive ones on it, at any level.

the Atlantic Division. That record would have landed the Raptors 13th in the Western Conference, and 18th in the 30-team league overall. As the old saying goes, they are the best 18th place team in the league. It gets only better for Toronto. They won the next night to pad their division-leading record to 6and-7.

Jaguars Ultimate Fitness dominates at powerlifting provincials Peter Clark Continued from p. 33

A couple of hours later, No. 13-seed Elliot Lake Secondary School pulled out a 24-26, 2512, 15-7 win over St. Joseph’s. The top two teams from each of the four divisions advanced to the championship round. The third- and fourthplace finishers moved on to the consolation round while the fifth team was eliminated. St. Joseph’s finished in a deadlock for fourth place with Marc Garneau, but advanced on the strength of their win over the Lake Ontario Secondary Schools Athletic Association opponent. They went unbeaten for a third consecutive Upper Ottawa Valley High School Athletic Association regular season at 9-and-0, and then followed with four more wins to claim the school’s second consecutive Renfrew County title. At the Eastern Ontario (EOSSAA) high school senior boys volleyball championship for A schools before the home crowd at the Jag Den Nov. 14, the Jaguars suffered their first loss of the season, but quickly regrouped with three wins to capture the 2013 EOSSAA title. The EOSSAA crown was the third in St. Joseph’s senior boys volleyball history. They topped Eastern Ontario in 2001 and 2002, and went all the way to capture the OFSAA crown in 2002 (2002-03 school year). Regular season and playoffs included, the Senior Jaguars complete 2013 with a 17-and-5 record.

Renfrew Timberwolves enjoy Lanark County weekend Peter Clark peter.clark@metroland.com

Sports - The Renfrew Timberwolves met their two Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League Valley Division Lanark County rivals, and enjoyed the experience immensely. The Wolves opened the weekend with a 6-3 win over the Almonte Thunder at the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre Friday night. On Sunday afternoon, a trip to Perth proved impressive as the Wolves skated away 5-0 winners over the Blue Wings. The weekend victories pull the Wolves into a first-place deadlock with their Renfrew County rival. Both Renfrew and Arnprior had 24 points after 19 games. WOLVES 6, ALMONTE 3

The Wolves overcame a sluggish start to skate past a stubborn Almonte squad that had topped the Wolves twice previously in the 2013-14 season. Kurtis Leclaire, Scott Conroy, Mike

Minns, Patrick Dick, Luke Lapierre and Sean Kyte divided goal production for the Wolves. Andrew Rowbotham had two goals in the opening period for the Thunder. In both cases, answers from Leclaire and Kyte erased one-goal deficits to pull the Wolves even. Minns put Renfrew ahead for keeps at 3-2 with 18 seconds left in the first period. Dick neatly solved Renfrew native and former Timberwolf Richard Barr with the eventual game winner 6:20 into the middle period. Barr – acquired last week from the Westport Rideaus – took over goaltending duties from starter Alex Daley at the beginning of the second period. Justin Shimizu narrowed Almonte’s deficit to 4-3, before a shorthanded marker from Lapierre restored Renfrew’s two-goal lead at 5-3. Bailey Hein had the skates taken out from under him on a breakaway, but Lapierre followed up on the play and snapped a loose puck behind the Almonte goalkeeper.

The weekend victories over Almonte Thunder and Perth Blue Wings pull the Renfrew Timberwolves into a first-place deadlock with Arnprior.

all 24 shots Perth shooters fired his way. At the far end of the ice, Scott Conroy, Luke Lapierre, Patrick Dick and Sean Kyte all followed Leclaire’s lead with their second goals of the weekend. The Wolves tested Blue Wings veteran Jeremy Wright with a 44-shot barrage. WOLVES HOWLINGS

Kyte supplied additional insurance just 23 seconds into the final stanza. The Wolves outshot the Thunder 4833. Goaltender Matt Schroeder turned in a solid effort with some timely saves. He blocked a shorthanded breakaway with the score 3-2, and made two outstanding stops just before the second period ended. WOLVES 5, PERTH 0

Kurtis Leclaire snapped home an unassisted marker 59 seconds into the game Sunday, and that was all Brayden St.-Germain needed. The Wolves netminder turned aside

The Wolves were minus Issac Anderson and Cole Allard, both of whom left Friday night’s game with upper body injuries. Colin Bradbury did return to the lineup however, after missing a week or two. The Wolves and Perth Blue Wings have a rematch this Friday at the MAC. Game time is 8 p.m. On Sunday, Renfrew travels to the Barbara Ann Scott Arena in Ottawa as part of a Metro-Valley showcase. The Wolves meet the Gatineau Mustangs at 5 p.m. in what is designated as a home game for the Quebec contingent.

Bantams reach Silver Stick semis Peter Clark

Sports - The Renfrew Bantam Timberwolves put in a good account of themselves at the Regional Silver Stick hockey tournament in Pembroke over the weekend before running out of fuel in the semifinal. The Highland Storm posted a 7-1 victory. The Bantam Wolves went 2-and-1 in round-robin divi-

sion play, flying past the Loyalist Jets and Bancroft Jets 5-2 and 6-0 respectively. The West Island Royals doubled Renfrew 4-2 in the other division contest.

SIHR meeting in Renfrew gets Prime Minister Harper’s attention Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

Sports - Renfrew councillor Jim Miller, who is a staunch supporter of the National Hockey Association/National Hockey League Birthplace Museum, proudly made a brief announcement at the Oct. 28 meeting of Renfrew council. In his hand he held a letter, which was read to delegates Oct. 26, during that weekend’s visit to Renfrew by members of the Society for International Hockey Research (SIHR) for

their fall meeting. The letter was from Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who’s also a member of SIHR. He did not attend the proceedings, but through his letter extended best wishes for a memorable and productive gathering and referred to Renfrew as a fitting venue for the meeting. “As the home of Ambrose O’Brien, who founded the precursor to the National Hockey League – the National Hockey Association – the community

has a special place in hockey history,” wrote Harper. “I know the Renfrew NHA/ NHL Birthplace Museum will provide an inspirational backdrop for your discussions. “The society’s promotion of hockey scholarship is contributing to a greater understanding of the game’s legacy. I commend these endeavours and congratulate all involved in advancing our knowledge of hockey’s unique and colourful past.” Miller says SIHR has 600 members from 41 countries.

Warren crew battles in Pembroke Andy Sklepowicz Behind the Glass

Sports - The road to the Masters is a long and tortuous route to complete and it matters not whether it leads to golf’s green jacket or to curling’s provincial championship. For one Renfrew foursome the trek last year brought them one agonizing step away from competing on that championship’s grand stage. It was their first try as a team and it ended with a loss on the last rock in extra ends at the regionals after an undefeated streak that took them past the best curlers, age 60 and over, in eastern Ontario. And so this year’s first challenge, the zones in Pembroke were looked forward to with anticipation. The team we are speaking of is the Rob Warren rink with Don Rouble playing third, Jim Berg second and Andy Humphries throwing lead rocks. In their first game they were down 4-2 after six but took two in the seventh and then stole the winner in a nail-biting eighth over the James Mullen rink from Ottawa’s Granite CC.

Early tournament action The Renfrew Collegiate Senior Raiders hosted the school’s annual sixteam Renfrew Roundball Cup early-bird senior boys basketball tournament Friday and Saturday in the Grant Gymnasium. Raiders Phil Kadlec (3) and Kaed Tymchuk (4) team up for an offensive thrust against a member of the North Dundas Devils in Friday afternoon action. The Chesterville school reached the tournament final where they were defeated by Holy Trinity Falcons of Cornwall. The Raiders went 1-and-2 in the tournament with 34-31 a win over the St. Joseph’s Jaguars in the C final. RCI won the Roundball Cup in 2010. The Raiders meet the Arnprior Redmen senior and junior teams in the annual Gord Eady Tradition hoops classic Monday, Dec. 2 at RCI. The junior game tips off at 5 p.m. followed by the senior contest at 6:15 p.m.

OLD NEMESIS

Richard Jorgensen (11) of the Arnprior Redmen headmans the ball up court against the defence of the St. Joseph’s Jaguars Lucas Power in Saturday morning Roundball Cup tournament action.

Game two brought the Renfrew lads up against their ol’ nemesis, Pembroke’s Emile Robert’s rink, always tough to beat, especially on

home ice. Renfrew had hammer, down two coming home in the eighth, but a Warren draw for the tie missed and any hopes for stealing another win went with it. This put the lads on the B side and they faced another Pembroke squad, the Bob Gauthier rink. Once again the lads did not bring their A game and bowed out 8-2. SKINS LEAGUE ACTION

Back at the club, Wednesday skins league finished draw one with two teams with identical 4-2 records and also 1-1 records in head-to-head meetings. Yvonne Sklepowicz, Karl Mann, Gord Eady and Theresa Mann and the team of Rob Warren, Brian Thiesen, Jane Hunter and Cedric Wright were declared co-winners of the first draw. Winners of the Friday night mixed were Bill Bowles, Gus Woito, Barb Roy and Louise Jamieson. Saturday, Dec. 7 will feature a new event on the curling calendar as Gord Eady and friends play host to the Renfrew Cash Spiel. This will feature eight teams ready to show off their curling skills in morning and afternoon games and will definitely be worth watching if you are not already playing. A delicious lunch will also be available, so come on out and enjoy some great club curling.

Madly Retro, and really proud of it steve.newman@metroland.com

Lifestyle - Quirky, sometimes. Unique, definitely. Stylish, yes. And vintage, absolutely. The four words go a long way to describing the new Burnstown business, Madly Retro, whose owner, Christine Johnson, lives just down the road in Springtown. Now in her early 50s, Johnson, opened the store this past summer after learning of a vacancy in the building that also houses Knuz Ice Cream. So now she and business partner Calère Boudreau, who manages their sister store (Allegro Retro) in Ottawa, have two locations for selling their second-hand vintage and modern clothing. “Vintage clothing, to me, is older clothing that evokes the spirit of another time,” says Johnson. “If you love fashion, you’ll have great pieces from any time, whether from a past or current time.” Since she first started using her own fashion sense, Johnson has been fascinated by fashion, particularly by second-hand clothing. Growing up as one of nine children in a farming family near Chatham, Ont., she spent time as a high school student at the

local St. Vincent de Paul thrift store, where she and two friends were always looking for “interesting” clothing. “I remember my best girl friend buying a muskrat fur coat, and we just thought we were the cat’s pajamas,” she recalls. “I had it in my blood, but never did anything about it (for a business) until this past year.” Johnson, who’s a mother of three boys who are attending university and married to a United Church minister, first worked in arts administration after earning her Carleton University bachelor of journalism in 1984. The second-hand clothing industry can also mean upcycling all or parts of older clothing, as she displays with two tasteful $35 skirts made from second-hand sweaters. “There’s a huge industry of recycled clothing. In terms of what we are, we have the opportunity to offer customers fantastic clothes at a really reasonable price.” The store name, Madly Retro, alludes to the Madawaska River, where she and her husband James Murray have lived after moving here in 2005. It has been a good move, with lots to like about the area.

“(I love) the natural beauty and the wonderful people,” she says. “There’s a really vibrant arts community,” adds the former Ontario Arts Council employee, who’s also a mixed-media artist, sewer and quilter. Madly Retro developed quickly, after talking last summer with a Burnstown business owner about doing a local retro-clothing exhibit. When she learned there was rental space available across the street, she jumped at the vacancy. With her business partner, Johnson says they’re always looking for new (vintage) and unique clothing to offer potential customers. Madly Retro carries men’s clothing, but the focus is on women’s clothing because that’s where most of the customers are, she says. Examples are a pair of Gucci pants for $45 and a 1970s-style long flowing red dress for less. “Ninety-five per cent of what we buy is clothing, but if we see something with a retro face,” she says, before referring to such items in the store as perfume bottles, beaded purses, compact Samsonite-like suitcases, female figurines in period costume or knickknacks. One of those knickknacks is a bright orange-yellow 1970s glass vase sitting. Clothing in Madly Retro include leather jackets, dresses, skirts, blazers and sweaters that carry such labels as Charlebois Furs, Ben Sherman, Paris Star, Levi Strauss, Jones New York Signature and Lilly Pulitzer. In fact, Johnson shows the Lilly Pulitzer 1960s cotton, short-sleeved, mini dress while noting Pulitzer once provided clothing for U.S. President John F. Kennedy’s wife, Jacqueline Kennedy. While Johnson acknowledges there’s public inhibition about wearing second-hand clothing, she also knows many well-dressed people who do. “I think you just have to present what you have, and if customers can see it and try it

Algonquin College. While deep-tissue massage can result in muscular aching for a day or two, massage should not create pain, says Mackey. Most people are under the impression that more massage-induced pain is better, but Mackey says, “That’s not the case. “You can always achieve results by working into a muscle gradually. Anyone who has had a painful experience should try a new therapist.” She also believes massage therapists should be effective role models, hence for recent completion of her first 10-km race.

She and a friend ran the 9 Run Run event in Stittsville where she went the distance in about 80 minutes. “As a therapist, I feel you want to take care of yourself. And you can’t call me a role model if I don’t.” Renfrew Massage Therapy, at 11 Renfrew Ave. East, is open weekdays 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The exception is Thursdays when she, or massage therapist Heidi Hader, are available from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Book at www.renfrewmassagetherapy.com or call 613432-0997 for an appointment. Rates are for sessions of 30 to 90 minutes.

Lifestyle - It’s little wonder Angela Mackey grew up to become a registered massage therapist. She encountered back injuries as a 12-year-old, but massage treatment eliminated those issues. That connection to the soothing power of touch resonated with her, as she grew up receiving more massages as a teenager and young adult. Now, the masseuse says it’s no surprise she is doing what she does for a living. “I just like making people feel good,” she says from her Renfrew Massage Therapy second-storey office, across from Scotiabank. “It was my first choice (as a profession). And I’ll do it forever and forever.” Knowing most people don’t have stress-free jobs, she takes a shining to being a stress-buster. But if there’s a compliment she’ll take any time she does a massage, it’s when the client falls asleep after her treatment, which has happened several times. Mackey began working as a massage therapist in 2008, but moved to Renfrew to be closer to her fiancé and to open her own business in 2010. She also made the move after working at two Ottawa spas, where she did treatments for professional hockey players, celebrities and other clients. Renfrew is a good place to work, she says, because many residents want to take care of themselves. Now that she has her own business, she’d like to welcome you to her world of effleurage, tapotement and petrissage — the major strokes most registered massage therapists use to ply their trade. Effleurage consists of long, sweeping strokes to warm up the body and to flush out toxins released during the massage. Tapotement consists of light hacking, chopping or finger-tapping. This can be done as a muscular stimulant (as part of a pre-race massage) or to release mucous from the lungs of cystic-fibrosis patients. A client relaxes under the soothing touch of massage therapist Angela And petrissage involves knead- Mackey at Renfrew Massage Therapy.

Making people feel good

Hello, Top to Bottom Chimney Service?


Expanding local care for our cancer patients Area cancer patients are now benefitting from an increase in onsite expertise in the RVH Oncology unit. Doctors Philippe Pinard and Cathy MacDonald have joined Dr. Stephanie Langlois and Dr. John Matosh to provide added physician coverage for our oncology/ systemic therapy patients. The doctors have completed specialized training at the Ottawa Hospital Cancer Centre and received mentoring from our oncology team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our main role is to be there if there is an acute complication,â&#x20AC;? explains Dr. Pinard. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make decisions about their chemo treatment, but if there is a medical complication, we come and assess the patient and, if necessary, start a treatment.â&#x20AC;? They will then contact their oncologist in Ottawa for further care.

RVH Oncology unit nurse manager Rhonda Normandeau adds that the on-call physician is sometimes a source of added support and reassurance to the patients when needed. From a staffing perspective, the extra coverage means the unit wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to close down as often as it has over the past three years with just two coverage physicians, notes Dr. Langlois. When both she and Dr. Matosh were away, patients needed to be repatriated to Ottawa for their treatment daysâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;causing extra scheduling work and disruption to the patientâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s routine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The most important thing is that we can keep the unit open five days a week and prevent added stress for the patients needing to travel to the city for care,â&#x20AC;? notes Dr. Langlois.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone is always upbeat. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a personal touch in everything they do and it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just special treatment towards me, I see it in the way they care for all of the other patients,â&#x20AC;? says Burgess, who first began cancer treatments at RVH in 2010. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say enough good things. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very professional and they treat us so well.â&#x20AC;?

Dr. Philippe Pinard and Dr. Stephanie Langlois are members of an expanded oncology team at RVH.

Oncology patient Bill Burgess appreciates the supportive care from RVH staff during treatments.

A few months into his new role, Dr. Pinard says â&#x20AC;&#x153;it has been a good experience and I am confident it will remain this way. The staff and nurses are really the ones making the chemo unit work well and they have been very helpful to me so far.â&#x20AC;? Castleford Road resident Bill Burgess is in the unit every three weeks for his chemotherapy treatments and describes the team in the unit as â&#x20AC;&#x153;incredibleâ&#x20AC;? and affectionately refers to the nurses as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Care Bears.â&#x20AC;?

Moving is also a very stressful time when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to have one or more people around to serve as destressors. After all, say the business partners, next to deaths in a family and starting a new job, moving is one of the biggest stressors, if only because moving can be so time-consuming and emotional. By combining their skills,

Caring Moves specializes in helping seniors and their families deal with the stress of moving by identifying challenges and designing an affordable solution tailored to the individual needs of each family.

Senior citizens are on the move, and a new Renfrew-based business wants to ensure those moves are made with care, compassion and attention to detail. Caring Moves is the creation of business partners Jack Stekelenburg and Donna Kurmis. Launched in late summer, the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goals include the organization of houses being prepared for sale; co-ordinating house repairs and yard work; shopping for needed items; setting up new accommodations; packing household items; taking discarded materials to the local landfill site; and renovating homes for seniors who are moving in with other family members. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What we like to say is we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t move things, we move people,â&#x20AC;? says Stekelenburg, 61, who has owned his own building renovations and repairs company for several years. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a local artist known for creative pieces out of discarded metal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not just a moving company,â&#x20AC;? he adds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have the compassion and empathy to listen â&#x20AC;Ś and provide the kind of care the family would want.â&#x20AC;? A specific service the Caring Moves partners like to highlight is their restoration and transfer of cherished photos and videos. Photos can be scanned and made available to all family members. Kurmisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contribution comes from experience gained in a health-care career of more than 20 years. This includes 16 years as a personal support worker in community homes in the national capital area. Now in her 50s, Kurmis has spent the past five years at Groves Park Lodge, a Renfrew seniors long-term care facility where she still works. Kurmis says sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s able to be a facilitator for seniors, whether it be by providing overnight care, interacting with family members, offering companionship, helping with dressing and

COMMUNITY

Renfrew Legion Branch 148

Community - On behalf of the Royal Canadian Legion, Renfrew, we would like to thank the public for their continuing support of our annual poppy campaign. Our poppy campaign this year was very successful. We would like to thank all the volunteers who helped distribute wreaths and those who stood at area locations during our poppy tagging campaign. Thanks also go out to everyone who marched in our Remembrance Day parades in

Canadians who have fallen in war and military operations. The poppy also stands internationally as a “symbol of collective reminiscence” as other countries have also adopted its image to honour those who paid the ultimate sacrifice. If you are looking for a place to go and enjoy yourself, we have entertainment every Saturday from 3 to 7 p.m. in our lounge and two Fridays a month from 8 p.m. to midnight as well. We will be holding a bingo on Dec. 27 at 7 p.m. The doors will open at 5:30 p.m. The youth education committee is very pleased to report all schools within the Renfrew area contributed entries in the

Calabogie, Renfrew and Portage-du-Fort. Special thanks go to the Renfrew Highland Pipes and Drums, the Renfrew Youth Chorus, the Renfrew Collegiate Band and especially the military for their participation. We would also like to thank all those who came out to be with us on Nov. 3 in Calabogie and Nov. 11 in Renfrew and Portage. Your attendance at these ceremonies shows that people do still remember and still care. Each November, poppies blossom on the lapels and collars of almost half of Canada’s entire population. Since 1921, the poppy has stood as a symbol of Remembrance, our visual pledge to never forget all those

various categories of the annual Remembrance poem, poster and essay contest. We had a total of 304 entries. Congratulations to all the winners. First-place entries were forwarded to the Zone G-7 chairman for judging. Prizes and certificates will be presented to all winners at an awards evening Dec. 4 at 6:30 p.m. in the Legion’s main hall. Royal Canadian Legion Provincial Bursary applications are available in the Legion office. The deadline date for submissions is March 28, 2014. Our membership early-bird campaign will end on Nov. 30. In order for a member to remain in good standing, their annual dues must be paid up by Jan. 31.

Win a La-Z-Boy chair Community - Support the Renfrew and District Food Bank and you just might win a La-Z-y Boy chair. The La-Z-y Boy chair is donated by Braeside Furniture. Make a food or cash donation to the Renfrew and District Food Bank between now and Dec. 19 at Renfrew Pizzeria at 98 Raglan St. S. during business hours, or at the food bank at the back of the Renfrew Armouries on Tuesday, Dec. 10 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. or Dec. 17 from noon to 6 p.m. The draw takes place Friday, Dec. 20, just in time for Christmas.

Kick the month off in style. Plan to attend the Renfrew Victoria Hospital Auxiliary House Tour this Sunday, Dec. 1. R0222236485

MP calls for action against gender violence

MP Gallant (centre) with Lisa Oegema of Victim Services of Renfrew County (left) and Joanne Brooks of the Women’s Sexual Assault Center of Renfrew County (right). Brooks and Oegema were in Ottawa attending the tabling of the Protecting Canadians From Online Crime Act, at the invitation of Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

MP checks out how funds are used

Editor’s Note: Following is a news release from the office of Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant. Cheryl Gallant, MP for Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke is encouraging all local residents to take part in the many events occurring during the 16 Days of Activism against Gender Violence. The campaign to eliminate violence against women and girls begins Nov. 25. “Women and girls should be able to feel safe in their homes, workplaces and communities,” said MP Gallant. “By standing together in communities across Canada we can make a difference in the daily lives of women and girls.” The 16 Days of Activism against Gender Violence campaign is a tremendous opportunity to draw attention to this problem, and work together to eliminate it. By taking part in this campaign, Canadians are sending a strong message that violence will not be tolerated. Violence against women is a problem prevalent in communities across Canada, as on average a women is killed in a domestic homicide every five days, and the costs of spousal violence are an estimated $4.8 billion every year. The government has committed to taking significant actions to make our communities safer for women and girls.

The government has recently introduced legislation that will give police and prosecutors new tools to address cyberbullying. This legislation would create a new criminal offence prohibiting the non-consensual distribution of intimate images. In Renfrew County, the Government of Canada joined with Gail Cameron of the Antrim Truck Stop and Persons Against the Crime of Trafficking in humans (PACT-Ottawa) in their TruckSTOP campaign to combat human trafficking onboard transport trucks. CDs were handed out to truckers to help them spot the signs of human trafficking, and posters were placed in major truck stops. The Government of Canada has also recently funded initiatives by Victims Services of Renfrew County and the Women’s Sexual Assault Centre. Those interested in participating in the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence may observe a moment of silence, attend a vigil, or join in another local event. Doing so will show support for victims of violence, raise awareness, and help inspire change. “By working together, we can get closer to our goal of eliminating violence against women and girls, and make our communities safer for all,” said Gallant.

PUT A NEW CAMPANALE HOME UNDER YOUR TREE THIS CHRISTMAS!

Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant meeting with Shannon Fraser of the Renfrew & Area Health Services Village and Dave Lemkay of the Renfrew County Community Future Corporation. She was visiting to see the results of $100,000 from the federal government’s Eastern Ontario Development Program. The grant was for a doctor and nurse recruitment campaign. “One in seven people in the Renfrew area do not have a family physician, so attracting new physicians to the area can be a matter of life and death,” said Gallant. “I commend all municipalities and partners involved by their proactive stance in pursuing the medical expertise needed in Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke.”

He knew that you were suffering, He knew you were in pain, He knew that you would never, Get well on earth again, He saw that the road was getting rough, And the hills are hard to climb, So He closed your weary eyelids And whispered, “Peace be thine” It broke our hearts to lose you, But you didn’t go alone, For part of us went with you, The day God called you home.

EMERGENCY 24H SERVICE

FIRE AT THE STEAM LAUNDRY: The fire alarm, about 10 o’clock on Thursday morning, summoned the fire brigade to the steam laundry on Opeongo street. There arriving they found the boiler room ablaze. The flames were quenched there, and the fires drawn from the boiler so there would be no explosion. Thereafter four streams of water were directed on the flames which had crept to the storey above. Immense volumes of smoke and steam poured from every crevice of the building. It was considerably damaged although not wrecked. The chief damage will be not from the fire, but from water on the machinery, which however could not be helped. The pressure was good and Fire Chief Wm. Stewart’s assistants did good work. THE DRILL HALL: The weather conditions having been most favorable, the concrete for the foundations wall for the new half of the drill hall was completed last week. This week the board casing has been taken away, the concrete covered with pitch; and the earth on the top of the hill is being squared off and drawn around as banking for the concrete, while on the leveled top, piles of brick are being laid from the Jamieson Lime Kiln. If the weather should continue reasonably mild yet a little longer, the whole of the front excavation will be finished. DECEMBER 1, 1938

THE RITZA DRUG COMPANY SHOWS CHANGE IN PERSONEL: A dissolution of partnership has taken place at the Ritza Drugstore. Mr. Gordon Kidd retires. Mrs. Ritza becomes head of the firm and Mr. Joseph J. Brown, son of Dr. Brown, is now the manager in charge. Mr. Brown graduated this year from the Ontario College of Pharmacy and comes highly qualified. Mr. Kidd came to Renfrew as a graduate druggist several years ago, enlisted during the Great War, was wounded and returned to Canada and in partnership with Mr. D.J. Ritza opened a pharmacy at Eganville, which he later took over and still owns. After a vacation he will probably

become a citizen of Eganville again. A FIND OF HONEY ON ARGYLE STREET: “Is there no balm in Gilead, is there no physician there” – a notable question put by a Biblical character in the long age, must have come to the minds of not a few in Renfrew on Thursday afternoon following the fall of a tree in front of the Ward From the last premises on Argyle Street. The tree was a balm of Old Files Gilead, cut down by workmen, and in a hollow portion of a lower section several pounds of honey was found. The honey was both in the mass and in the comb, and with it was a swarm of bees, rendered quiet through a low temperature.

TEACHERS RATIFY NEW CONTRACT: Elementary teachers in Renfrew County ratified a new contract Thursday night that will give them a 5.8 per cent salary increase for the 1978-79 school year. The contract also gives the teachers parity with secondary teachers across the province, said teachers spokesman G.R. Fraser. A total of 269 teachers voted on the offer, out of a possible 380 teachers working with the board. Only 17 people voted against it, said Mr. Fraser. The new contract also provides for increased decree allowance. Teachers will now be paid $600 for a second decree instead of $450. The minimum principal’s allowance will also be increased to $2,335, to a maximum of $7,000. The contract was also ratified by the Renfrew County Board of Education at their meeting last Wednesday. SPORTS DINNER: Sports Renfrew is trying to get Iona Campagnolo as the guest speaker for the second annual sports person of the year dinner in February. The date of the dinner has not yet been set, depending on when the Minister of State for Fitness and Amateur Sport is available. Various organizations in town are being asked to send in the names of candidates who they feel are worthy of the award. Last year’s winner was Al Denne. Nominations which should include a resume of the person’s sporting accomplishments should be sent to Sports Renfrew before the end of January.
