North York man dies during Wilderness Tours river trip Renfrew OPP investigates weekend tragedy at local resort Mercury staff

LUCY HASS/METROLAND

Renowned Downchild founder, blues singer and harmonica player Donnie Walsh. The best of Canadian blues was featured at this year’s Class Axe Guitars Calabogie Peaks Blues and Ribfest, and music lovers responded with thundering applause.

Calabogie aims for title of Blues Capital of Canada Lucy Hass Lucy.hass@metroland.com

An estimated 14,000 people attended the second annual Class Axe Guitars Blues and Ribfest at Calabogie Peaks on the weekend. Thatʼs an impressive jump from last yearʼs turnout of 8,000 people, enough to move organizers to set their sights on the title of Blues Capital of Canada. Calabogie Peaks owner Paul Murphy described the increase as “nice,” leaving larger accolades for the eventʼs musical lineup, vendors, volunteers and spectators. As Downchild lead singer Chuck Jackson proclaimed during Friday nightʼs performance: “This is not Calabogie. This is Calaboogie!”

Former Ottawa Mayor Larry OʼBrien also gave the event a huge thumbs-up, jumping on stage to proclaim the Calabogie show even better than Ottawaʼs blues celebration. From its opening at noon Friday, right up until the gates closed Sunday at 8 p.m., the local blues showcase and ribsfest was a clear success. Murphy attributed that success to a variety of factors, including the year-round promotion given to the event by major sponsor radio station DAWG-FM, plus an impressive musical lineup. Among those acts were premier blues bands Downchild and The Powder Blues Band. The weather also co-operated, with only a touch of rain over the three days. See RHYTHM, page 2

The Renfrew detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police is investigating the drowning death of a 28-year-old man in the Ottawa River near Foresters Falls. An OPP report says the police were called to Wilderness Tours on Saturday, Aug. 18 about 6:20 p.m. when a male was pulled, unresponsive, from the water. Staff performed CPR on the man and were assisted by paramedics upon their arrival. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The investigation reveals Thang Duc Ngo, 28, of North York, Ont., was at Wilderness Tours with three friends for a day of rafting. During a break in rafting, participants are free to swim and relax. Police say it was at this time that Ngo was found to be missing. Wilderness Tours employees searched for and located Ngo underwater. He was brought to shore and given CPR, but staff and paramedics were unable to revive him. An official statement from Wilderness Tours, which extended its thoughts and prayers to his family and friends, said he died after a late-Saturday afternoon stop on the Ottawa River. This popular stop is called Miami Beach, named for the beautiful sand beach that

forms at summer water levels. At that spot on the trip, guests can swim at the beach, jump off the rock or slide into the calm pool of water on an overturned raft. “While the investigation is not complete, it appears that Mr. Ngo was participating in the cliff jumping off a two- to three-metre drop into about three meters of water,” said the Wilderness Tours official statement. “This popular activity is part of most river trips provided by outfitters on the Ottawa River. Because of its location far away from the current, wearing life jackets while jumping or sliding is optional. “Mr. Ngo was recovered not wearing a life jacket. “Participants are advised to be in good health and possess average swimming ability,” the statement said. A preliminary investigation suggests the Ngo jumped off the rock, surfaced and was seen swimming back to shore. “We are grateful for the help of other river companies on the river at the time, paramedics and the Renfrew OPP,” said the Wilderness Tours official statement. “The investigation is continuing and will provide more information if it becomes available. “We are deeply saddened by this event and express our condolences to the family and friends of Mr. Ngo.” Police are continuing to investigate under the direction of the Coronerʼs Office. The death is not considered suspicious and no foul play is suspected. Const. Sarah Turcotte is investigating.

PHIOTOS BY LUCY HASS/METROLAND

The best of Canadian blues, including Shakura S’Aida, hit the stage at the 2012 Class Axe Guitars Blues and Ribfest at Calabogie Peaks on the weekend.

Rhythm and Ribs Calabogie aims for title of Blues Capital of Canada Continued from front

Reg Henry of Ottawa is served by Louise Smith and Bob Waldschmidt at the Gator BBQ, known as The Original Deep South Since 1983, stand at the Calabogie Peaks Blues and set-up, perhaps with a few more “ribbers,” as Ribfest on the weekend.

Workshops were also popular with 35 to 50 people at each session. Jack DeKeyser and J.W. Jones hosted the guitar workshops while Guy Belanger and David Rotundo offered harmonica sessions. Harmonica lies at the heart of most blues, and Murphy said one remarkable highlight of the weekend was when the festivalʼs final performer – David Rotundo – launched into a long, exciting song jam and, at the end, jumped off the stage and into the audience where he played up close with fans and exchanged highfives to roars of applause. The Calabogie Peaks festival is distinct for many reasons, including a powerful fireworks display that is timed to coincide with the last song Saturday night. The spectacular show draws boats into the Peaksʼ bay and Murphy also heard reports of cars parked all the way to the Eagleʼs Nest Trail turnoff on Highway 508 to catch the fireworks that were shot off midway up the mountain into the brilliant, clear night sky. Aside from the natural amphitheatre of the ski hill for spectators, the Peaksʼ event also distinguishes itself as unique by offering onsite camping. The number of campers also increased this year and Murphy hopes that trend will continue, with the camp community spreading up the mountain. An expanded kidsʼ zone offering 15 different games “went very well” according to Murphy, who was happy to see the large number of families enjoying the event. There was even a musician who performed just for the children. Murphy said next yearʼs festival will be held Aug. 16, 17 and 18 under basically the same

the demand for food was very high. The judgeʼs picks for best sauce went to Gator BBQ, followed by Horn Dawgʼs Smokin; BBQ; and best ribs were Horn Dawgʼs Smokinʼ BBQ, followed by Gator BBQ. Peopleʼs choice honours were presented for pulled pork, chicken, ribs and sauce. Horn Dawgʼs Smokinʼ BBQ was top choice for pulled pork, followed by Gator BBQ. The first-place chicken choice was Kentucky Smokehouse, followed by Crazy Canuck Smokers. The peopleʼs choice top sauce title went to Horn Dawgʼs Smokinʼ BBQ, followed by Kentucky, and the ribs choice was Horn Dawgʼs Smokinʼ BBQ followed by Kentucky. This yearʼs overall top prize was also special, as Burnstown artist Richard Gill of Bittersweet Gallery created and donated a plaque with an impressive clay relief sculpture for the winner. Bittersweet Gallery was also one of close to 40 vendors at the event. The vendorsʼ market drew good feedback from festival-goers for its diversity, and the vendors were happy with sales. Murphy said most ticket sales were from the Ottawa, Seaway and Ottawa Valley markets, with a marked increase in local sales. Moving forward, Murphy said the Peaks is committed to the festivalʼs future and assures its theme will remain true to the eventʼs blues roots. And now, with its growing distinction as a “popular, popular venue,” Murphy thinks Calabogie may one day be recognized as the Blues Capital of Canada.

More than 3,000 people made their way through the Renfrew Agricultural Society grounds and Armouries Saturday for Taste of the Valley. More than 70 vendors showcased their finest crafts, cooking and more. This is the second year of the event which organizers saw has definitely grown, thanks in large part to the regular farmersʼ market whose popularity “made a great difference.” There were steady crowds throughout the day. “The vendors were very happy with the turnout and said the visitors were very supportive of the various people showcasing everything from jewelry and crafts to jams, jellies and maple syrup. The next Taste of the Valley event is Saturday, Oct. 13 in Cobden. “Taste of the Valley is, first and foremost, a celebration of local foods and products,” says the County of Renfrew website. “The elected officials of the County of Renfrew are insisting that, where possible, all products be produced within the County of Renfrew. “

Peter Sidock of Renfrew is interviewed and filmed for the public television art auction later this year. Twenty-five artists from the Renfrew, Arnprior and Almonte areas are participating in the auction that will be aired Nov. 16 to 18.

Twenty-five local artists are receiving some valuable publicity after being chosen to take part in a fundraiser for the Watertown, New York PBS television station. A WPBS crew was in the area last week filming interviews and showing off the works of the artists. The segments were shot in Burnstown’s Neat Café, Arnprior’s Robert Simpson Park and in front of the historic five arch stone bridge in Pakenham. They will be aired on the PBS station in the lead-up to an on-air Art Auction Nov. 16 to18, which will play a major role in the station’s fundraising week. The local artists were chosen in a juried process organized by Kevin Dodds of Arnprior and Diana Wakely of Renfrew to provide art works for the auction. “It’s back by popular demand,” explained WPBS special events manager Julie Weston, noting the station had many requests by viewers to revive the auction. The art auction, a major contributor to the station’s annual fundraising drive for 25 years, is back after a five-year absence. Weston said she was “pleasantly surprised” by the amount of interest shown by Valley artists in the auction. The artists chosen come from a variety of media, from painting and pottery to jewelry-making, she said. The Showcase of the Arts auction will include in-depth looks into the artists’ lives and works. Participating artists receive “a lot of exposure,” both through the airing of the interviews and on the station’s website, she explained. All participating artists are invited to attend the station for the auction and Arnprior artist Ian Bartlett will be featured creating a painting on the set. Dodds, who has been involved in the auction for many years and was its featured artist in 1994, agrees that it’s a valuable opportunity for artists to show their art to a wide audience in eastern Ontario and northern New York State. Joining Weston in making the visit to Burnstown, Arnprior and Pakenham to shoot the interviews Aug. 14 and 15 were WPBS director of production Tracy Duflo, producer-director Lumarie Vega and special events clerk Monica Stadalski.

If wagging tails is any indication of success, Bark in the Park was a huge one. Over 100 people and their dogs met at Ma-Te-Way Park to socialize, play and discuss the proposed off leash dog park. The dog community is striving for a 2013 opening of a four acre fenced in area with a double gated entrance. The park is of interest to many dog owners in Renfrew and discussions bounced from the height of the fence to what ammenities should be included and when the park would be the busiest. Throughout the event, supporters could make a donation toward the park in exchange for nail trimming, dog washing, raffle tickets or dog treats. A total of $565 was raised, with more money coming in each day. The dog park committee is going to keep the ball rolling this year by holding a fundraising walk in the fall.

This is what Peter Waito’s home in Dacre looked like after last Friday’s fire gutted the basement and living quarters, and reached the roof of the garage. a.m. Flames were shooting out of the basement windows when the first firefighters arrived on the scene. Chief Kosmack says the fire has been classified as accidental, following a carpen-

Opeongo Road is focus of Admaston-Bromley’s CIIF bid Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

Admaston-Bromley Township is applying for federal funds under the new Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund. The focus of its application is a 2.37-kilometre stretch of Opeongo Road, which leads to the Town of Renfrew boundary. Priority is given to those

seeking one-third federal funding, but Admaston-Bromley is seeking 50 per cent support for the project estimated to cost about $263,000. Costs include ditching, grading, calcium, rock removal and the paving of shoulders, as the township looks to provide paved shoulders, on both sides of the road, for walkers and bikers. Admaston-Bromley is

trumpeting the project as a connecting link to provincial Highway 132 as well as a trail of historical and recreational value. Its application notes that daily traffic count reaches 1,800, or the highest volume of any road within the Admaston-Bromley 340-km. network. Three projects were considered.

Mayor Raye-Anne Briscoe called the grants pleasant surprises. The improvements will also provide an estimated $1,328 in annual energy savings. Hydro One will cover the entire cost to upgrade the Stone Road office and garage, and the Cobden garage. Those respective costs are $1,081 and $352. The other facilities to be upgraded are the Barr Line Community Centre, Douglas fire hall

and Douglas recreation building. Their recommended and respective upgrades will cost $1,823, $1,833 and $2,490. Of those totals, the township will pay $505, $535 and $968, for a total of $2,008. Admaston-Bromley already had $2,500 in this yearʼs budget for energy-efficiency upgrades. Under the program, all costs under the first $1,000 for a facility are completely covered by Hydro One. The repairs will consist mainly of replacing T12 + older magnetic ballasts with electronic ballasts. The newer T8s are brighter, more efficient and easy to buy. The older ballasts were also scheduled to go out of production this summer. A Hydro One official also visited the Osceola historical building and Osceola landfill site Aug. 2, but recommended no upgrades for those facilities.

improvements to the Douglas fire hall. “Thereʼs all kind of need to rehabilitate that road before we have to reconstruct the whole thing,” said Mayor RayeAnne Briscoe. “So this (would be) money well spent, very well spent. Opeongo Road has huge historical significance, so weʼre glad to sign it accordingly, because itʼs part of the Opeongo Line and all kinds of history. And itʼs a great link between the business section and the Town of Renfrew and Highway 132.” The mayor says the road could also be a whole lot safer, partly because of poor lines of sight. These include the community mail boxes, which are located right after a large rock that creates a sharp corner for drivers. The federal program is supplying $49.6 million in Ontario.

Charges arise from bomb threat at Wilderness Tours Renfrew Ontario Provincial Police

Following a joint investigation by the Pembroke Police Service and the Renfrew OPP, a Pembroke man has been charged with uttering threats. On Sunday Aug. 19 at about 4 a.m., Renfrew OPP officers attended Wilderness Tours in Whitewater Region in regards to a male trespassing on the property.

Later on Sunday at about 3:30 p.m., a bomb threat was received at Wilderness Tours. The main building was evacuated while staff and police searched the area. No suspicious packages or bombs were discovered. Investigators gathered evidence to support charges. Finally, about 3:45 p.m., Pembroke Police received a 9-1-1 call from a male advising there was a bomb at Wilderness Tours. They investigated and arrested a male in Pembroke for that offence. A 38-year-old Pembroke man has been charged with two counts of conveying a false message, two counts of uttering threats, and one count of common nuisance.

EDITORIAL

This fall fair season, celebrate our rich agricultural heritage The days are getting longer, which means marks a very special time – the agricultural fair season. Fairs have already been held in Arnprior and Beachburg, and this weekend Cobden and Shawville host their exhibitions. And in two short weeks, the Renfrew Fair rolls into town Sept. 5 to 9.

There is so much to enjoy at our annual fall fairs. More than you might appreciate. There are, of course, rides and games and music. But the heart, as always, lies in the agricultural roots of these fairs. Rural fall fairs are a celebration of a much simpler, yet much more difficult time. Fall fairs remind us of our heritage – days

when most food came from nearby fields, gardens and barnyards. And when skills like baking, preserving, sewing and knitting kept families fed and clothed. This year, enjoy the lights and bells and whistles. But take the time to find the silent spaces, in exhibit halls and barns. In his website greeting, Renfrew Agricul-

tural Society president Bob Johnston reminds us: “The Renfrew Fair has provided friendly competition, family entertainment for all ages and family involvement over the decades.” Promoted as “The greatest fair in the Ottawa Valley since 1853,” the fair is possible, thanks to the efforts of a dedicated team of directors that deserves our praise and recognition.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Not being mindful of reality To the editor: Re: Alleged Scare Tactics by MP Gallant, by Ray Parchelo, Aug. 17, 2012. I donʼt believe Mr. Parchelo is being very mindful at all, of reality. He does seem, however, to enjoy partaking in the lowest form of wit with his sarcastic, juvenile and tasteless pap. Indeed his letter was quite insulting to our MP and other residents. As only about 17 to 18 per cent of all Canadians are aware that CBC receives $1.16 billion in corporate welfare every year, it is incumbent on our incumbent to inform her constituents of the goings- on of their tax dollars. Yet ironically, the CBC will not miss an opportunity to blare that private company ABC or ACME Canada INC. receives a bit of tax relief and cries “Corporate welfare at its worst.” Even though these companies actually provide jobs and add to the bottom line of the country, rather than just take, take, take. That fact that CBC has become such a large and secretive consumer of our money, any cut to CBC can easily be justified. I personally do like CBC Radio, especially Radio 2, as they appear to have more substantive music and a lot less politically slanted and tasteless pap. (Check out Nigel Kennedyʼs violin concertos) I believe MP Cheryl Gallant was referring to CBC TV that is now not available to many in the Valley, myself included, due to their switching to digital from analog signals last fall and the fact that they chose to cut our services here in the Valley! That said, CBC in its present form, has be-

come outdated, unnecessary and a wasteful drain on our money, especially in light of the ga-zillions of sources of news and entertainment courtesy of broadband in almost all of Canada. Millions of Canadians are waking up to the reality that we can no longer afford such extravagance, and at a time when cities, states and whole countries are going into receivership, we must pare the dead wood from the tree. I believe, as many Canadians do, that CBC should have about 70 per cent of its present form privatized and/or sold. Leave at its core the CBC Radio 2 for decent music, a bit of news and programs and, of course, the infrastructure for emergency broadcast. Capping the corporate welfare at $350 million would be more than enough to cover a CBC for such common sensical purposes. The other $800 million so could go to paying down the debt. No country can afford the wasteful drain on its tax dollars that the CBC currently swallows. Perhaps Mr. Parchelo would do well to offer a solution or two, rather than a delusional teenage drama to the conversation, ever mindful of course, that residents of Renfrew County are a lot better informed and intelligent than he seems to think, and further, that that knowledge, wisdom and fiscal prudence does certainly not at all stem from the CBC. Thank you for your time. Sincerely, H. Wm. Tuck Arnprior

Layton owed a debt of gratitude To the editor: Wednesday, August 22 marked one year since the death of Jack Layton but thousands of postings on the website “Dear Jack.ca” attest to his continuing influence. I remember a man who approached the NDP booth at the Renfrew fair last September. At one side of the booth we had hung a picture of Jack and we had a memorial book which people were invited to sign. This man asked if there hadnʼt been “enough of this.” Although he was trying to appear controlled and perhaps slightly sardonic, he was, in fact, positively bristling. I felt then as I feel now, that he just didnʼt

THIS WEEK’S QUESTION

Has our interest in the Olympics become too focused on medal-winners and not enough on the efforts of the athletes?

A) No. We should be focused on the

Each of us can, and indeed must, contribute to making a better world – pretty heady stuff! Many have taken his message and carried it forward; many more will do so, and thus will Jackʼs beloved Canada and the world move out of the shadows. Thanks, Jack! Lois A. Airth Renfrew

Schools to reopen on time despite teacher dispute Derek Dunn derek.dunn@metroland.com

There wonĘźt be a strike during the studentsĘź ďŹ rst day of school, according to an area teachersĘź union spokesman, but after that it depends on how far the Liberal government is willing to push it. Premier Dalton McGuinty said during a tour of an Ottawa school on Aug. 17 his minority government plans to introduce legislation that will require school boards and teacher unions to accept a salary freeze over the next two years and ban any strikes or lockouts. After eight years of relative stability compared to the tumultuous Mike Harris years, relations between the Liberal government and teachers has soured as QueenĘźs Park tries to get a handle on the provincial deďŹ cit. McGuinty has declared he will recall the Ontario legislature early on Monday, Aug. 27 to vote on a bill called Putting Students First. The bill would also force teachers to take a 1.5 per cent pay cut in the form of unpaid professional development days, eliminate banked sick days and offer 10 teaching days for shortterm sick leave. He said the measures will save the deeplyindebted province $2 billion over the next two years. The one-time â&#x20AC;&#x153;education premierâ&#x20AC;? added that if teachers donĘźt give up the money it could affect other areas of the education system. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We canĘźt invest in teacher pay hikes and roll out full-day kindergarten,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We canĘźt invest in teacher pay hikes and keep class sizes down. We canĘźt invest in teacher pay hikes and maintain jobs for those 13,000 teachers, new teachers that weĘźve hired (over the past nine years).â&#x20AC;? The legislation would take effect Sept. 1, the day after current teachers and support staff agreements expire. If unchanged, automatic staff salaries kick in. The government says the hikes, as much as

5.5 per cent, would be put in effect if it doesnĘźt take steps to undo them. Union reps call that one of many attempts at fear-mongering. More than half the provinceĘźs teachers agreed to zero per cent wage increases during the last round, according to Ontario Secondary School Teachers Federation District 28 president Jeff Barber of Admaston-Bromley. The vast majority of the other half would see a one per cent increase. MANUFACTURED CRISIS

Barber said the Liberals are manufacturing a crisis by imposing artiďŹ cial deadlines, pinning groups against one another, and inďŹ&#x201A;ating the numbers. But the former Renfrew Collegiate Institute teacher said educators and staff are willing to contribute to solving the debt problem, but through negotiation, not by force. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our members will be in their schools and working with students on the ďŹ rst day,â&#x20AC;? Barber said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;WeĘźre ready to work with local school boards and talk.â&#x20AC;? He added that he has no crystal ball, and didnĘźt discuss the possibility of work-to-rule action. The Liberals said union negotiators walked away from the table in the past. Barber said they walked away from three lawyers with a ďŹ stful of demands, not elected politicians willing to talk. Asked about popular opinion that shows all public sector employees are paid more and enjoy better beneďŹ ts than other taxpayers, Barber said it is easier these days to pick on unions rather than target other areas. Politicians are also well compensated, he said. As well, corporations are pulling in record proďŹ ts and are taxed lower in Ontario than almost anywhere else in North America. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wouldnĘźt characterize teachers in the one per cent,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are willing to talk and

willing to help, but they are going beyond that now.â&#x20AC;? He said the Liberals are â&#x20AC;&#x153;taking away democracyâ&#x20AC;? if they impose the Putting Students First bill. That it would dismantle rules that have built the standard-of-living all Ontarians have enjoyed for many years. ECONOMY SUFFERING

McGuinty said measures must be taken to respond to the lagging provincial and world economy. The wage increases, the sick leave provision and the existing retirement gratuity would cost the province $473 million, according to the Ministry of Education. The deals struck in the past brought labour peace, but it canĘźt go on, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were reasonable and responsible given the economics that prevailed,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But these are different times, I think Ontarians recognized that.â&#x20AC;? There is much uncertainty in the global economy, said McGuinty and as a consequence OntarioĘźs economy is growing more slowly than the government would like. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We canĘźt afford to give pay hikes to teachers or doctors or nurses or any of the 1.3 million public sector workers,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not right now. TheyĘźve all had reasonable, responsible pay hikes over the past nine years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These times are a little bit different,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It really is responsible for us to protect jobs and protect progress, but hit the pause button for a couple of years.â&#x20AC;?

He said if the impasse isnĘźt broken soon he isnĘźt sure how the wage increases will be paid. â&#x20AC;&#x153;WeĘźre kind of bystanders now. We have no money (for pay raises),â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have no idea where weĘźd get the money.â&#x20AC;? ThatĘźs because the board sent in a proposed budget in May. It received money back from the province that included a zero per cent pay increase for employees. That tying of the hands at the local level, begun under the Harris government, is another indication that democracy is removed from the ground level, according to Barber. He said traditionally contracts were negotiated at the board level. What the McGuinty government is doing not only removes local decision-making, but imposes decisions from the highest levels of government. Shields, again, said regardless of how either side is handling the standoff, the board could soon be caught in a tight situation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have no time set aside right now for negotiations,â&#x20AC;? he said.

BOARDS CAUGHT IN MIDDLE

Renfrew County District School Board Chairman Dave Shields said â&#x20AC;&#x153;there is a ďŹ nancial crisis in the province,â&#x20AC;? but didnĘźt say if the money to clear the debt should come from teachers.

Farmers frustrated with response to drought steve.newman@metroland.com

Growing frustrations about lack of government response to current drought conditions erupted Tuesday night in Cobden. During a two-hour information meeting hosted by the local chapter of the Ontario Federation of Agriculture in the agricultural hall, farmers sat quietly listening to the early speakers. These included Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA) crop specialist Scott Banks, Renfrew County economic development manager Alastair Baird, and Mike Thompson of Community Futures Development Corporation. They spoke about potential dangers surrounding stored corn silage, data being collected by the countyʼs low water response committee, and how farmers can access loans if theyʼre turned down by the banks. About 150 farmers attended the meeting, which gathered momentum from there. Some farmersʼ questions were for speaker Gail Simkus of the provincial government insurance body Agricorp. One question came from Douglas farmer Preston Cull, who disputed the rainfall findings gathered by Agricorp. He indicated its data has poorly reflected how little precipitation the area has received this summer, thus adversely affecting potential Agricorp insurance payouts. Cull later said he learned “nothing” from the information meeting. Then the frustration erupted following a combined presentation on AgriRecovery, the framework through which farmers in this region, and other regions, hope to gain additional financial assistance to help them recover from the drought. Presenters senior policy advisor Bradley Shaw of OMAFRA and Rick Fiarchuk of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) reviewed what AgriRecovery is, and what it may be able to do for farmers. Afterwards, pointed comments from farmers Don Russell of Osceola and Jennifer Doelman of Douglas drew resounding applause. Shaw and Fiarchuk spoke about AgriRecoveryʼs objectives. These include providing “a rapid financial response to assist with immediate recovery from a disaster situation,” and to “enable short-term actions to minimize/contain the impacts of the disaster on producers.” Fiarchuk, who directs the AAFCʼs disaster assessment and analysis division, stressed that AgriRecovery is not intended to offset income loss, but to help complement existing assistance programs and help farmers recover. Russell, who was named one of Canadaʼs outstanding young farmers a few years ago, is known as an articulate, but usually soft-spoken

man. But Russell, 43, had an edge to his remarks when he went to the microphone to address the two speakers. “I realize the process is complicated and takes a little bit of time,” said Russell. “You keep saying weʼre going to do this really quickly … and get it (financial assistance) to them (the farmers) as they need it … This is going to take a long time. Youʼre talking about how many people at so many different levels, and all this information. Youʼre not going to get this information until late fall. Itʼs going to be next spring before we see anything, if we get anything … Iʼm really disappointed because I donʼt think AgriRecovery is the solution.” He also reiterated Cullʼs remark about questionable rain data. Fiarchuk is also among the officials conducting the AgriRecovery assessment (whose target is to complete the assessment within 45 business days before making recommendations). This means the assessment might be completed by the end of September. “We donʼt do this in our ivory towers,” said Fiarchuk at one point, but he was later told the assessment needs to be done by talking to more farmers one-on-one to understand the extent of the drought-caused damage. After Russell spoke, Douglas cash-cropper Doelman weighed in with her criticisms. She told the speakers sheʼd “never heard such a waste of double-speak.” While she said she wasnʼt trying to shoot the messenger, she said promises of working fast and asking for flexibility werenʼt sitting well with farmers. “Youʼre saying one thing, but youʼre really telling us weʼre on our own.” Support needs to happen faster, added Doelman, who pointed out that there was a frost disaster in 2009, but she didnʼt receive her AgStability cheque until March 2012. “I know youʼre doing the best you can,” said Doelman, “but itʼs not good enough … No offence, but I have no faith in the government at all.” Officials attending the meeting included Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant and Carleton-Mississippi Mills MPP Jack MacLaren, who said, as a farmer, he wanted to hear what the speakers had to say. Local MP John Yakabuski had a conflicting commitment, at the Association of Municipalities of Ontario conference in Ottawa. Judging by the farmersʼ frustrations voiced Tuesday, Gallant said sheʼll modify the structure of Mondayʼs Aug. 27 meeting sheʼs hosting in the Renfrew Legion. The focus, therefore, will be on how well farmer-assistance programs are working and what can be done to improve them. The meeting starts at 7 p.m.

Farmers should speak with one voice John Carter john.carter@metroland.com

10 The Renfrew Mercury EMC - Thursday, August 23, 2012

farmers is “so far behind” that in Quebec. She noted the Quebec government has been buying hay for drought-ridden farmers for the past month to help them keep their cattle and has already been providing a subsidy. In Ontario, no aid is yet forthcoming and the amount of involvement of the provincial and federal governments in aid programs still hasnʼt been resolved, she noted. Campbell said Hamilton suggested the Quebec government responds so quickly to farmer appeals because they speak with a united voice in that province. In Ontario, the farm voice is split between the OFA, NFU and Christian Farmers. “Hopefully this drought will bring farmers together to speak with one voice,” she said. See ONTARIO, page 12

Drought-stricken Ontario farmers would probably be receiving government assistance by now if they spoke with one voice like their Quebec counterparts. And providing specific information as to how the drought is affecting them will improve their chances of receiving government aid. Those were two messages that Mayor Mary Campbell shared with McNab-Braeside council Tuesday as councillors discussed the impact of one of the driest summers on record. Council decided to table until its Sept. 4 meeting a motion to support the Renfrew County National Farmers Union (NFU) appeal for disaster relief funds for area farmers.

Campbell pointed out the issue of compensation for farmers was being discussed that evening in a meeting in Cobden and would be on the agenda again at a 7 p.m. session to be hosted by RenfrewNipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant Monday, Aug. 27 at the Renfrew Legion. Campbell said she applauded the NFU for its initiative and agreed farmers needed help. “Good on them,” she said. However, it may be become clear at the two meetings that funding should be coming from the AgriRecovery program and not be disaster relief, she added. She told council that during a visit by Ontario Federation of Agriculture (OFA) president Mark Wales to McGregorʼs Produce last week, she asked area OFA representative Brian Hamilton why the efforts to provide relief for Ontario

Ontario farmers need Quebec-like approach, says Mayor Campbell Continued from page 12

Campbell also urged local farmers to fill out forms detailing the economic impact the drought is having on their operations. The collection of this type of data is necessary if this area is to get special funding, she said. Information such as how much a farmer loses by prematurely selling stock is important, she added, noting the impact of the drought will continue for some time. While not providing any direct assistance yet, Ontario has asked Agriculture and AgriFood Canada to join with the province in an as-

sessment of support options, including tax relief, through the AgriRecovery framework for livestock producers affected by dry weather. There is a variety of support programs designed to protect Ontario farmers against a number of risks, such as bad weather or significant swings in market prices for their crops. To participate in a business risk management program, producers must commonly enrol and pay a premium, similar to home or life insurance. The following federal-provincial programs are available to Ontario farmers:

12 The Renfrew Mercury EMC - Thursday, August 23, 2012

• Production Insurance kicks in when a field crop falls short because of extreme weather, pests or other factors. • AgriStability is a type of income insurance, where the trigger is a decline in income or an increase in costs. Producers who are experiencing financial distress and are in need of immediate help can apply for an interim AgriStability payment. • AgriInvest works much like a savings account that farmers can use to either cover small income declines or support other investments. Each year, farmers can deposit a small amount

(1.5 per cent) of their net sales into a bank account and receive a matching government contribution. Funds can be withdrawn at any time. • AgriRecovery is a disaster relief framework that provides a rapid response for producers affected by events such as droughts, flooding, hailstorms, ice storms, or wildfires. The province may request an AgriRecovery assessment, which is done together with the federal government. Also, Ontarioʼs Risk Management Program insures farmers against losses in income, and is available for the cattle, grains and oilseeds, hog, sheep and veal sectors.

Nighthawks, nightjars, skilful hunters in the dark There are eight species of nighthawks and nightjars but the ones we know best are the common nighthawk and the whip-poor-will, our most common nightjar. They are often referred to as “goatsuckers” after the old belief that they would fly into barns at night and suck milk from goats. Today we know them as extremely efficient insect feeders and because of this ability they are often called mosquito hawks. In the past week or two rather large flocks of the nighthawks have been seen over a wide area. Brian Eady saw a flock of about 12 nighthawks at his home on the River Road. Pat Enright saw a flock of about 50 birds over Highway 132. Richard and Maureen Brennan saw a flock of about 12 birds at their home on Dugald Road and the Clark family saw a flock of 12 to 15 birds at Mount St. Patrick. All the flocks were seen at dusk and shortly after, all were “hawking” for insects and all were heard “booming”, a sound made when air passes through their wing and tail feathers during a dive. It is during their dive that they catch much of their food. The birds have a small bill but a wide gape that they open when they dive through a swarm of insects, catching a mouthful on the way by. Their well developed facial bristles help funnel insects into the mouth. Some nighthawks and nightjars sit on roads to collect insects. The heated roadway attracts the insects and the birds wait for their insects to arrive and then snap them up. If you are travelling on a country road at nigh you will sometimes see the birds by their eyeshine, a rich, glowing red that is visible at considerable distances. In recent years very few nighthawks and nightjars have been heard or seen. The declines have been associated with insecticide use, loss of open habitats, and the use of rubberized roofs instead of the gravel and tar of 25 years ago. The only time we see them now is in their migration flocks. TREE SWALLOWS

SCENE FROM THE HAWK’S EYE was being cut. The birds would swoop over the freshly cut hay, catching insects that flew up as the haybine passed. PILEATED WOODPECKERS

Ron Huntley has two immature pileated woodpeckers coming to the trees near his home on the Lanark Road. It is the first time the birds have ventured so close. Ron thinks it may be due to the destruction caused by the micro burst that went through a few weeks ago and destroyed many of the mature trees in the area. Their home may have been among the trees destroyed. Ron has just returned from a trip to Peru where he says he was able to observe 150 new birds and 250 for the trip. To date he has seen 26 species of hummingbird and the most beautiful is the marvellous spatuletail hummingbird. The male of this species sports two 18 inch (45cm) feather shafts extending from the tail with a spatula-shaped plume on each tip. Ron said the trip was extremely interesting and informative but also very difficult because of the mountain terrain and the long hours.

BALD EAGLES

I was talking with Doug Forgie at John L. Forgie and Sons Concrete Products plant and Doug said that the bald eagles were soaring over the Bonnechere River and the Renfrew landfill site in search of food. The plant is situated between the river and the site providing a good vantage point from which to see the birds. He noted that when food became scarce the birds make their rounds of possible food sources the Bonnechere and the landfill being two good ones. During the winter months wolf kills, road kills, and land landfill sites are the eaglesʼ only source of food. To survive they must spend many hours in air searching for food. Enjoy your birding.

Maureen and Richard Brennan saw flocks of tree swallows hawking for insects during the day near their home on Dugald road. Richard said that the birds were difficult to count because of the aerial manoeuvres the birds do as they follow the insects. The Brennans also notice how quickly the swallows (barn, tree and bank) arrived when a field of dried hay

Unique match program supports employee volunteer efforts and RVH Foundation The Scotiabank Bright Future Program supports a wide range of projects as a way of giving back to local communities. The program aims to be responsive to the needs of the local community, with a focus on the areas of the arts, education, social services and health care. One facet of the program is the Team Scotia Community Program (TSCP), which matches funds raised by teams of employee volunteers for charitable causes. “Itʼs a great program because it fosters staff involvement in the community,” notes Scotiabank Branch Manager Mike Brydges. At this yearʼs RVH Foundation Caring for Tomorrow Charity Golf Tournament, the branchʼs volunteers got involved by selling raffle tickets throughout the day. “Our staff supports anything related to Renfrew Victoria Hospital,” comments Brydges. “We not only work in this community, we live here also and access the services of the hospital.” The bank also entered a team in the event, one of 40 groups that enjoyed a great day on the fairways and greens of the Renfrew Golf Club. Since getting involved in this annual event a few years ago, Scotiabankʼs contributions, including 2012, have exceeded $10,000. This yearʼs TSCP portion of $3,500 matches the funds raised by raffle ticket sales at the June event. Proceeds of the tournament

Rural Ramble in the Ottawa Valley now online Site applications now being accepted This fall, Rural Rambling will be easier than ever as the traditional self-guided driving tour goes digital. The 2012 Rural Ramble is a free online event, running from Sept. 1 to Oct. 31. The new website, www.theruralramble.ca, will feature an interactive calendar of events which consumers will be able to use to create personalized Rural Rambles. The annual Rural Ramble is organized by the Ottawa Valley Tourist Association (OVTA), and over the years has grown from a small two day farm tour to a free, on-going festival featuring four themes: adventure and exploration, agriculture and food, history and heritage and arts and culture. The website, designed by Blue North Studios, will showcase special events that take place during the Rural Ramble. Events and activities will be clustered to-

gether around the Ottawa Valleyʼs signature Roots and Rivers driving routes used in previous fall promotional campaigns. “Research shows that more and more people are using online tools to research and plan their trips. 73 per cent of leisure travelers use the internet to get their travel information,” OVTA communications co-ordinator Lauren McIllfaterick, explains. “With the new website, Rural Ramblersʼ will be able to create, download and print custom-

ized routes based on the themes and locations that interest them the most.” The new, online format of the Rural Ramble means that printing and distribution costs are reduced. These savings are being passed onto Rural Ramble sites. “The cost to submit a Rural Ramble event is free for OVTA members and includes an unlimited number of listings. Non-OVTA members are also welcome to

participate in the Rural Ramble. The cost to participate for non-members is $40 for the first listing and $15 for every additional listing,” said McIllfaterick. Rural Ramble events are to be submitted online. Simply create an account on www.theruralramble.ca and follow the step-by-step submission form. The consumer portion of the website is still under construction as it is based on the site submissions received. Be sure to check back often as new sites are being added daily. The Rural Ramble is the perfect opportunity for the cultivation of new friendships and Valley hospitality. Come back to the countryside with us! The Ottawa Valley Tourist Association (OVTA) is the official destination marketing organization for the Upper Ottawa Valley and proudly represents more than 215 tourism businesses, comprised of attractions and events, accommodation, dining and retail establishments, rafting companies and outfitters, artists and galleries, as well as media and industry suppliers.

Big red ones Drought-like conditions most of the summer haven’t helped farmers, but they haven’t put much of a dent in Barbara Putrycz’s tomato crop. Her front-yard plant in Renfrew has produced at least seven large tomatoes, including one that fell off after reaching more than two pounds. Here are some of the fine-tasting whoppers. “I love gardening,” says the 91-year-old, who says she’ll continue to grow flowers and other gardening delights until she dies. She’s also proud this year of her shamrock plant, which appears to the left.

Relief for people Pastor Rose Leclaire, right, of Sunbow Ministries in Mount St. Patrick presents a $350 cheque to the Renfrew and District Food Bank. Accepting the donation are food bank president Doug Brookes and fellow volunteer Joan Hewitt. The money, which was collected during the Bible Proclamation’s healing service July 28, was intended as relief for people. The food bank is open at the Renfrew Armouries the last three Tuesdays of each month. Week 2 is open 9 a.m. to noon, Week 3 noon to 3 p.m., and Week 4 from 3 to 6 p.m.

Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant, left, presents a Canadian flag to new Canadian citizen Carol Anita Law of Renfrew.

steve.newman@metroland.com

Itʼs been a wonderful Olympics for Renfrew resident Anita Law, who is enjoying the luxury of supporting athletes from three countries. As a citizen of all three of those nations, she has been cheering for swimmers Brett and Shaune Fraser of the Cayman Islands, as well as several Olympians for Great Britain and Canada. But one of her biggest luxuries, says the 40-year-old mother of two children, is that she can now vote. “I wanted to vote most elections,” said Law, who became a Canadian citizen May 10, 2012 at an Ottawa ceremony. “I finally decided to do it in March 2011. I wanted to vote.” She left her native Britain at age two when her father took a transfer to the Cayman Islands. It was expected to be a two-year placement with the Bank of Canada that turned out to be closer to 30 years. During that time Law returned to her homeland to study at the University of Wales. However, she never met residency requirements to vote in either country, but that has changed since her move to Canada in 2003. She, husband Peter and children Zoey and Owen live in Renfrew, where she does public relations and marketing work.

More importantly, she says she has found a home in Canada, which she calls an amazing country. Much of her love for Canada has to do with social reasons, or what she calls the way people look out for others who are less fortunate. Also, Canada reminds her a lot of the Cayman Islands, where people come from all over the world to adopt their new country with open arms. “I decided to come here because it was a place of opportunity,” she says. In a brief ceremony last week, Law received a congratulatory certificate and a Canadian flag from Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant. “Iʼm going to go home and hang my flag up,” she said after the presentation. “Itʼs a very nice welcome and it very definitely gives me a sense of being part of a community.” Gallant said itʼs quite an accomplishment to receive oneʼs Canadian citizenship, especially because of the more stringent multiple-choice test that candidates must now pass. “You have dedicated much time and effort toward acquiring your Canadian Citizenship and becoming part of our wonderful nation,” said a signed certificate from Gallant. “Canada is a country full of opportunities and prosperity. As you celebrate this special

Former NDP leader Jack Layton to be honoured at Friends for Peace Day On the 10th anniversary of Friends for Peace Day, MP Olivia Chow will receive a posthumous Peace Award on behalf of her late husband Jack Layton. Peace awards are given annually to outstanding citizens. Orkidstra have commissioned composer James Wright to create a song from Jack Laytonʼs letter to the nation. Orkidstra open the afternoon program on Sept. 29 at 2 p.m. and will sing this tribute to Layton. Friends for Peace Day will be celebrated at Jean Pigott Place at Ottawaʼs city hall. Itʼs a day to celebrate the consciousness of peace, social justice and planetary care rather than bemoan their scarcity.

There will be music, speeches, dancing, food and a chance to learn and connect. Donations fund “peace grants” to organizations making a difference. In Ottawa, the grants include the Multi-Faith Housing Initiative, the Dave Smith Youth Treatment Centre, Child Haven International, Peace Camp Ottawa and Physicians for Global Survival. Globally, there are projects supported in Africa, India and Nepal. The morning onstage program starts at 11a.m. with a piper and walkers for peace, Metis welcome and the Dandelion Dance Company There is no admission fee and donations will be accepted.

Helferty Family at museum category was young Jack Emond with his silhouette of a child jumping into a lake at sunset. The winner for the black and white category was Brandon Prince with his photo of chutes on the Bonnechere River. The landscape category winner was Paul Prince with his sunny shot of water over a natural rock wall. Princeʼs action photo of a frog swimming won the overall title and will be turned into a postcard soon available at the museum. The winners will each receive a museum prize package. “Thank you to all who voted and participated. Many beautiful photo submissions made voting a tough task for visitors,” say museum staff. “We look forward to seeing the photos next yearʼs contest will bring.”

Peek into the past Central Public memories from 1949: Kenny Parent of Renfrew provided this photograph of his 1948-49 kindergarten class at Central Public School. It was taken just before the summer break of 1949. In those days, he says, there was a lot more snow; horses were plentiful, pulling sleighs and cutters that winter; and there no sidewalks during his walk from the far end of the fairgrounds to school. He canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remember all of his schoolmates, but can identify a few in the front row. They are, himself, second from left; Donald Smith, who now lives in western Canada, fourth from left; Warren Burton, fourth from right; and Andy Smith, second from right. SUBMITTED BY KENNY PARENT

ROAD IN RENFREW COUNTY ADDED TO KINGĘźS HIGHWAY: Notice is given in the current issue of the Ontario Gazette that pursuant to the provisions of the Highway Improvement Act the road in the County of Renfrew being the CombermerePembroke road easterly and thence north easterly across the Township of Radcliffe

home at 874 Raglan Street. The two and a half storey home will be used up by the eight adults under the care of the Renfrew and District Association for the Mentally Retarded. The municipal board had called the hearing in response to objections to a spot rezoning allowing such a use. Municipal Board member C. Gebers QC delivered his ruling at the two hour meeting. Mr. Gebers answered each objection in summary, following a tabling of information in favour of the residence as well as listening to the objections. According to the association, the group home will follow a provincial deďŹ nition which describes a group home as a small family type home for adults, working in a sheltered semi-sheltered or independent employment, and requiring assistance with some personal and social needs.

It was a chance to relive some memorable British history during Bonnechere Manorʼs Diamond Jubilee Heritage Tea last Thursday. Nineteenth-century period costumes, mostly made by Joan Headrick of White Lake, were worn by several participants, as the auditorium was a splash of colour, bustles, hoops, tiaras and Prince Albertʼs top hat. Prince Albert, who was Queen Victoriaʼs husband, was played by staff member Denver Mullen. Prince William and Princess Kate also made appearances. They were played by recent Renfrew Collegiate Institute grad Charlie Bossy and Our Lady of Fatima Catholic School student Delaney Leavoy. “Itʼs fun, but it makes you glad that you live in the 19th century because the clothes are so warm,” said Dorothy Young, who wore a vibrant pink dress from that period. The event was also a fundraiser for drapes and/or the sound system in the new man-

or auditorium, where the tea took place. The old manor had an auditorium that was central to the residentsʼ lives. By all accounts, the current manorʼs new auditorium will also be integral to their spirit and activities. About 150 people attended the tea. For $10, each received sandwiches, squares and tea in the hall that was filled with conversation as Nicole Hass played tunes on the keyboard. The sandwiches also included the good old English favourite of cucumber slices and cream cheese. Tea servers were Bonnechere Manor director of care Vi Rossy, manor foundation member Lee Sharpe, past Renfrew mayor Sandi Heins and author Mary Cook. Carol Sulpher, who one of the period costumes with a significant hoop, was among those serving squares. Many of the costumes came from Joan Headrick who has made several of over the years for the Waba Museumʼs annual tea. “I like it because itʼs kind of taking us back to a kinder,

26 The Renfrew Mercury EMC - Thursday, August 23, 2012

gentler time when they had more time to dress up,” said Headrick, who attended the event in period costume. Many of her hoops used for Thursdayʼs tea were 1850s and 1860s style, while the bustles have an 1880s authenticity. The late 1880s were also home to the reign of Queen Victoria, whose diamond jubilee reign ended with her death in 1901. And this year, Queen Elizabethʼs diamond jubilee is being celebrated. “It tells us that people enjoy teas,” said heritage tea coordinator Eleanor Donaldson while looking around the hall. “We used to have teas at the old manor,” said the member of the manor foundation and manor auxiliary, who later learned the event raised about $1,500. “Itʼs a way to socialize. People can come and do their visiting, but with heritage costumes … Iʼm glad I didnʼt have to wear those heavy gowns, but theyʼre beautiful and they add to the atmosphere. “And, of course, itʼs another way to use our auditorium and show the community what weʼre doing.”

Doris Spence of Renfrew was among the estimated 150 people who attended the fundraising Diamond Jubilee Heritage Tea at Bonnechere Manor last week. The hugely successful fundraiser for auditorium equipment had many tea-goers decked out in 19th-century period costume to commemorate Queen Victoria’s diamond jubilee reign that ended in 1901. The present monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, is also being honoured, this year, for reaching her own 60 years on the British throne.

Sunny weather, spirits as SkiAbility takes to the Madawaska Sherry Haaima Sherry.haaima@metroland.com

EMC lifestyle - The only thing brighter than the sun that shone Sunday at Burnstown Beach were the smiles on the faces of Community Living participants and other water-skiers taking advantage of the annual SkiAbility Ottawa clinic. Russ and Chris Holden of the Manotick-based program have been hauling equipment and boats to the Madawaska River each year since 2005. “Really, anyone can ski,” said Chris Holden, son of the father/son team that works each year to get people out on the water having fun and challenging themselves. “Itʼs about getting out there and doing it.” Equipment and instruction are as varied as the mental and physical challenges faced by the skiers and considerable time is spent on practicing and ensuring participants are safe and comfortable. The objective, says Chris Holden, is to provide a safe, fun, successful learning experience for all persons with a disability regardless of their previous watersport experiences. Age and disability are not limitations, said Chris, they merely change the approach to the sport. “We pride ourselves and really work hard on making it an independent experience as much as possible,” said Chris. Boats are equipped with a ski boom to optimize learning and training and based on ability, participants choose sit-skiing, stand-up skiing, wakeboard, or barefoot Each skierʼs experience is examined and notes taken. “We look at ʻWhat did we do? What did we do well?ʼ and ʻWhat do we want to improve on?ʼ” Rebekka Zimmerling of Renfrew had skied before and was raring to go Sunday at noon when she arrived at the dock. She had a run of assisted skiing alongside Holden before he hopped into the boat and she went it alone. An exuberant Rebekka climbed aboard the boat, tired and thrilled from the experience. “It was just great,” she said, with a firm two thumbs up. Camilo Acero of Toronto had learned of the program online several years ago and this year crossed the long-time goal off his bucket list, travelling all the way to Burnstown for the experience. “It was amazing,” said Acero, sitting in his wheelchair on the dock after his river run. “I was in an accident 20 years ago and before that I used to waterski as a hobby. The first time out today was exactly the same – the water, the speed, the wind in my face.” He credited the Holdens and SkiAbility for the amazing opportunity and said he was definitely interested in keeping up with waterskiing. SkiAbility Ottawa is a not-for-profit, volunteer-driven organization that serves the Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec regions and accepts persons with any type or level of disability, any age, and at any experience level. The program accepts participants at the novice level and up and has a competitive stream including world class athletes. Funding is achieved through user fees, donations and sponsorship.

Parade set for Eganville’s Olympic middle-distance runner Olympian Melissa Bishop of Eganville will be honoured on Sunday, Sept. 2 with a homecoming parade. The parade will start at the Legion Field at 1:30 p.m. and proceed through the village to the community centre, where a reception will be held in honour of the 2012 Olympic middledistance runner. Bishop, who competed in the 800 metres in London, will address the crowd and sign autographs. There will also be brief addresses from local dignitaries and special presentations. This past track and field season, Bishop be-

BROKE MAGIC 2:00 BARRIER

She ran 1:59.82 en route to earning Olympic status. She and teammate Jessica Smith of North Vancouver both raced the 800 in London. Bishop was eliminated in the opening round, while Smith advanced to the second, or semi-final, round. An estimated 700 spectators crowded into the Eganville arena Aug. 8 to watch televised

coverage of the Olympics and cheer Bishop on during her Olympic debut. “This is going to be such a great event (Sept. 2) for the community and a wonderful welcoming home event for Melissa,” said Bonnechere Valley Township Mayor Jennifer Murphy in a news release. PAINT THE PLACE RED

Everyone who has purchased a Team Melissa T-shirt is encouraged to wear them to the parade. If you donʼt have one, then you are en-

couraged to wear red tops. Bishop, 24, will ride in a horse-drawn carriage driven by Tom Redmond of Cobden. Anyone interested in participating in the parade is asked to be at the Legion Field by 12:30 p.m. Owners of antique and classic cars and trucks and local teamsters are invited to participate in the parade. Families, businesses and organizations are also encouraged to enter the parade and make the event a memorable one.

Tough loss for OVGA match-play defending champion Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

Defending champion Cooper Brown, of Renfrew, was a first-round casualty in the Ottawa Valley Golf Associationʼs junior match-play championships Aug. 13. He and Renfrew Golf Club teammate Stephane Paré, of

Fort-Coulonge, Que., both lost their opening-round matches on an extra hole. Paré lost his to Carson Scissons of the host Mississippi Golf Club in Appleton, just outside Carleton Place. “I just hit a bad shot on 18 that cost me the match,” said Brown, 17, who was playing Nolan Windsor of the River-

mead Golf Club. Brown hit a long drive on the first extra hole, but “chunked” a 50-yard sand wedge to the green. Leading by one shot, he had a 10-footer for par to clinch the match, but lipped out. On the extra hole, Brown was still in position to win. “I hit a perfect shot, but my

second shot was long into the bunker,” said Brown, whose sand shot left him with a 10-footer to stay in the hunt. He missed the putt, while Windsor two-putted from 10 feet to advance to the quarterfinals. “It just proves that you can never take for granted what you have,” said the defending

champion. “I putted poorly and I didnʼt have the right mindset. I think I was a little mentally drained (from lots of recent tournament play),” added Brown, who won his first-ever Renfrew Golf Club open menʼs championship Aug. 12. Nicholas Caron of Rivermead Golf Club went on to reach the OVGA match-play final, for 14- to 18-year-olds, after winning his first three

matches. Caron defeated Joey Irvin of the Mississippi in the first round 1-up, Dylan McNamara of Rivermead 3-and-2 and Nolan Windsor of Rivermead on an extra hole. The other finalist, Isaac Lieff of Rideau View, won the final 2-and-1. But first he defeated Josh Goheen of Hylands 5-and-4, Chris Packman of Ottawa Hunt 2-and-1, and Nicholas Brisebois of Eagle Creek 3-and-1.

Big crowds for minor ball

finals in McNab-Braeside McNab-Braeside minor ball wrapped up its season July 14 as more than 300 attended McNab Centre Park ball diamonds to watch family and friends play in the final games. The hot day began with coaches leading the Tim Hortons T-Ball players in the kick-off parade followed by the players standing for the national anthem. It wasn’t long before the eager five-pitch players and families arrived for their game. The Canadian Tire team led the division to be champions for the league and playoffs. McAllister Ford and Stoneworks were close behind with significant improvements over the year as well. The mites division had an exciting year. Stoneworks topped the league and went on to win both their games, finishing first in the playoffs to automatically qualify for championship game. Magnetsigns challenged Coady’s Home Improvements to an extra three-innings (2.5-hour game), before Coady’s took second place in the playoff round to qualify to meet Stonework in Saturday’s final. COADY’S RALLY IN MITES FINAL

Stoneworks came out strongly and led the game early, but Coady’s came from behind to win the game in the final inning. The peewee division was combined boy and girls to make a four-team loop, with close games all season. R&D Insurance won the league, but GP Service Station fought hard in the playoff round and again in the championship game. However, R&D was able to hold on for the win. The Yellow Jackets played a tight exciting game and overtook OPG in the final inning of the B Championship Game.

COACH OF THE YEAR

The Les Lavallee Coach of the Year Award was presented to mites coach Pat Ryan by convenor Brian Armsden. Ryan also co-coaches the Mites Selects Team. The league thanks convenors Lisa Conway (T-Ball), Jeff Clattenburg (5-Pitch), Brian Armsden (mites), Ken Corbin (peewee), Duane Clouthier (peewee), Christina Howard (pitching clinic), Adam Rueckwald (umpire schedular) and Gayle Corbin (umpire treasurer). It also thanks Percy and associates for operating the canteen and donating funds to Minor Ball Association. A special thank-you goes to the many players, families, sponsors and McNab-Braeside Township. All are key to the success of the program. The 2012 sponsors were Ontario Power Generation, Tim Hortons and Coady’s Home Improvements. Good Luck to the Squirt Boys Selects team (coaches Duane Clouthier and Joe Shean) and the Mites Selects team (coaches Brian Armsden and Pat Ryan) as they proceed to represent the McNab-Braeside Minor Ball Association in local upcoming tournaments.

International presence for Renfrew Shuffleboard Club pair Stan McCormack Renfrew Shuffleboard Club

And you thought shufďŹ&#x201A;eboard was only played in Renfrew County. In fact, players from seven

in 1981 with only Canada, Japan and the United States represented. Participants in Seattle also included Renfrew ShufďŹ&#x201A;eboard Club members Stan and Lois McCormack of Calabo-

countries just wound up the 31st International ShufďŹ&#x201A;eboard Association World Championships in Seattle, Wash., on Aug. 10. The very ďŹ rst such event was held in Muskegon, Mich,.

gie. Each captained United Nations teams, which consisted of players from different countries. The competing countries were Australia, Brazil, Canada, Germany, Japan, Norway and the U.S. In addition we had a mixed youth team made up of representatives from those countries. The ďŹ ve full days of com-

petition were supplemented with plenty of social events, as men and women competed independently of each other. At the awards banquet it was announced Canada East women and Canada East men had ďŹ nished ďŹ rst. Most of their team players were from the Fergus, Ont., area. As the gold medals were presented, the audience responded with

applause, handshakes and hugs. The international event is a ďŹ ne example of the promotion of harmony among nations through sport. ShufďŹ&#x201A;eboard takes place every Tuesday at 1 p.m. in the Air Force Association of Canada (AFAC) building, 164 Argyle St., Renfrew. For more details, call 613-752-1311.

My View From Island View Grandparentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Strange Habits

ANNE LEFEBVRE

League champions The Renfrew Blue boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; under-12 soccer team won the Ottawa Valley league championship Aug. 13. After a very successful regular season, the Renfrew team entered the playoffs in second place and moved on to the championship game against Deep River Red. The hard-fought, spirited title game remained scoreless well into the second half before Stephen Young scored twice. The final score was 2-0. Championship team members, from left, in the front row, are Benjamin Reid, Garrett Rose, Jared Burnette, Tyler Blackburn, AJ Hart, Darby Songolo, Matthew Finan, Kyle Naismith, Mason Lynch, Brendan Hill, Tyler Lefebvre; back row, Jacob Miller, Connor Dorzek, Riley Bulmer, Carter Bleeks, Jacob Schuler, Riley Friske, Braden Reinhart, Stephen Young, Ryan Theobold. The coaches are John Songolo, centre, and Mike Blackburn.

Island View Retirement Suites

when grandma passed away, it made life easier for all when they knew for certain exactly what grandma wanted them to have. One resident at Island View recalls her grandfather collecting garden cuttings from every place he travelled around the world. That would probably not be allowed now due to import restrictions on plant material but I bet he had one of the best gardens in his community. Ken, our volunteer, remembers his grandpa instructing him to â&#x20AC;&#x153;go through everythingâ&#x20AC;? after his grandma passed away because she had the habit of hiding various sums of money around their apartment. When the time came, Ken remembers ďŹ nding cash under carpets, in coat pockets, buried underneath rose scented paper in dresser drawers and ďŹ nding money wrapped in plastic bags in the motor section of their refrigerator! A relative of a resident at Island View shared with me that her grandmother always kept a safety pin securely pinned to her knickers because you never know when you will need the quick repair

that a safety pin can provide. Listening to death notices on the radio was another odd habit. Whenever these notices would come on the radio, no matter what was going on, my friendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grandma would say loudly â&#x20AC;&#x153;QUIETâ&#x20AC;? and no one was allowed to talk until all the deaths were announced. But the best one yet that I heard, was a residentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grandma who used to set an alarm clock when her father was courting her mother. If he overstayed his welcome, the alarm would ring loudly warning him it was time to take his leave. What kind of quirky behaviours do you have that are making your kids or grandchildren think, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wow that is really weird!â&#x20AC;?

I am not sure what is so fascinating about Kleenex but when I was going through my grandmaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clothes after she passed away, I found Kleenex in every pant, skirt and shirt pocket she owned. I can distinctly remember my other grandmother always kept several pieces hidden away in her brassiere. StufďŹ ng was certainly not necessary but I now know that you can never be sure when a drippy nose will begin. I now understand to have a Kleenex at the ready creates peace of mind. Funny, I catch myself placing handfuls of the stuff in my pockets anytime I leave home. A friend of mine recalled that her grandmother labelled everything with the names of her relatives who should receive the items in the event of her untimely death. She found this a little creepy but

So I was giving some thought the other day to Grandparents but not in the way you may think. I was more pondering the unusual habits they had. You know the ones I am talking about. The strange things you would see them doing that made absolutely no sense but you thinkâ&#x20AC;Śahhhâ&#x20AC;Śthat makes perfect sense now! Some of these practices were cute but some were just down right weird.

Please know that we love you And that we miss you so.

In memory of a wonderful husband, father and grandfather who passed away Aug 22, 2009.

BERTRAND, Violet

In loving memory of a dear wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother who passed away five years ago on August 20, 2007. We cling to the memories of the love and laughter, The joy in the togetherness that you shared has made us strong, You were someone that all of us could talk to. You were always there when we needed a helping hand. Your smile, the funny things you said that made us laugh, Until the tears ran down our faces, We will always cherish those memories. Our love for you will never fade away, You are gone but not forgotten, We will hold you in our hearts forever. Lovingly remembered and sadly missed, Dennis and Jeannette, Wayne and Gayle.
