Team Hwy. 17 paves way for safer roadway Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

Deaths every year along the Highway 17 corridor of Renfrew County are blamed on everything from driver error, bad weather, lack of road maintenance and the virtual absence of a fourlane highway. But perhaps the newly-formed TEAM Highway 17 Working Group is about to make the highway a whole lot safer. During a visit to Renfrew County last week, ofďŹ cials with the Kingston regional ofďŹ ce of the Ministry of Transportation made a presentation to county council on construction achievements, construction plans, and past and future maintenance standards. The MTO, the Ontario Provincial Police and County of Renfrew staff met in a teleconference call about a month ago, then met again face to face for an Ottawa meeting Oct. 26. Five days later, Norm Meyers, the trafďŹ c head for MTO Eastern Region, told county council that three action items have been identiďŹ ed for the working group. The groupĘźs next meeting is Jan. 17, 2013. The working groupĘźs terms of reference are to identify of discuss safety or operational concerns, potential improvements and potential public education opportunities. The working groupĘźs mandate is to maintain or improve the safety and/or efďŹ ciency of Highway 17 from Campbell Drive (just west of Arnprior) to the countyĘźs western boundary (about 20 kilometres east of Mattawa). The working groupĘźs co-chairs are Meyers and Darren Waters, senior project engineer for the MTO Eastern Region. Renfrew County director of public works Dave Darch, whoĘźs a member of the group, says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;How can we make the highway safer while weĘźre waiting for four-laning to come?â&#x20AC;? The working groupĘźs other ďŹ ve members are MTO Eastern RegionĘźs trafďŹ c supervisor Toby Covell, regional communications co-ordinator Brandy Duhaime and regional planner Josee Bessette; and Dave Springer and Mark Andrews of the OPP. Springer and Andrews are the respective trafďŹ c and marine inspectors for the OPPĘźs east and northeast regions.

Time overdue to deal with Highway 17 fatalities, says Deep River mayor Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

STEVE NEWMAN/METROLAND

Officials with the Ministry of Transportation’s eastern regional office field questions from Renfrew County council. From left are director Kathy Moore, Jim MacLaurin, Norm Meyers, Ken Polson and Angela Stewart.

New working group Continued from front page

Action item No. 1 relates to this yearʼs death of a local woman at the intersection of Highway 17 and Haley Road. As a result of the OPPʼs site investigation into the accidentʼs contributing factors, the OPP has recommended the construction of a left-turn lane for drivers coming from the east. In turn, the working group will examine more than a dozen Highway 17 intersections that do not have left-turn lanes, to determine if those turn lanes are needed. Collision analyses, traffic volume and economic viability will be considered. Action item No. 2 involves hiring an independent consultant to determine the suitability of a two-lane transition zone — between the new four-lane highway (near Campbell Drive just outside Arnprior) and the ensuing transi-

tion zone — for up to 10 years. The ensuing transition zone basically consists of two lanes and two parallel passing zones for 1.5 kilometres. Thereʼs time to do this independent study, suggests Meyers, because of the unknowns of funding for Phase 2 of the Arnprior bypass. Phase 1, which runs 5.3 kilometres to Campbell Drive, is scheduled for completion this month. Action item No. 3 will be discussion of the OPPʼs mapping of Highway 17 collisions from the past 18 months, to help identify areas that may be safety concerns. Darch sees the working group is an interim, but important, measure. In the interim, the public works director wants to take a closer look at the causes of fatalities and, where necessary, make structural changes to the highway. Some of those changes may be costly, some not very costly at all, says Darch.

The Ministry of Transportation (MTO) delegation consumed about 90 minutes of Renfrew County councilʼs meeting Oct. 31, but it only took about two minutes for Deep River Mayor David Thompson to express many county councillorsʼ sense of frustration about Highway 17 expansion and maintenance. Several county councillors pressed the MTO delegation for answers, including the desire to know when Phase 2 of Highway 417 expansion might proceed. Phase 1, which runs 5.3 kilometres, up to Campbell Drive (just west of Arnprior), is expected to be completed this month. But first Thompson caught everyoneʼs attention with his remarks. He reminded the delegation that he was headed to a funeral in a few days for the sixth Deep River resident that has died in a Highway 17 vehicular accident in the past few years. After thanking the MTO staff for an earlier visit to the Town of Deep River last April, he says follow-up from that meeting was conspicuously absent for several months. He said the MTO also needs to address safety issues, and the sooner the better. He cited two specific examples. One is the sudden end of a second Hwy. 17 lane, about 50 metres before the intersection at Ridge Road. This, he said, often results in large vehicles jockeying for the remaining lane with pedestrians often nearby. “I can tell you that is an incredibly unsafe situation that needs to be rectified,” said Thompson. The second example is a false left-turn lane into Tim Hortons. Thompson called it “a bit of a teaser lane. Itʼs a left-turn lane into the (adjacent) Canadian Tire. Any visitor, of course, puts on their left blinker without looking in their rearview mirror. I can tell you, and our traffic statistics and local OPP will tell you, how many collisions happen there. “When you have a transport behind you and you think youʼre in a turning lane and youʼre not, this is great cause of concern.” The mayor also commented on MTOʼs sixmonth delay regarding a visit last spring. He called the delay and eventual reply in late October unacceptable. The Ministry of Transportation, said the correspondence, does not have any plans to rehabilitate Highway 17 through the Town of Deep River. While he recognized the MTOʼs classification of roads as Class 1, 2 or 3, he stressed, “The residents of Renfrew County are not second class (the same class that Highway 17 is given through Deep River). We are all the same, whether we live in Deep River, Toronto or Kingston. “My guess is that when you travelled up here, you travelled on Highway 41. If you had travelled up on Highway 417, you would have seen the crosses and you would have the wreaths, and you would have seen the memorials that litter Highway 17.” He reminded the delegation that the weekend funeral he planned to attend was for a local resident, whose daughter is a classmate of his sonʼs.

Restricted or prohibited firearms require a registration certificate from the Canadian Firearms Program (CFP). The POL does not allow for the acquisition of more firearms; only the Possession and Acquisition Licence (PAL) does, says Gallant. After speaking to Minister Toews Tuesday morning, Gallant said Toews indicated that no law on the books compels businesses to obtain personal information from firearms owners. Deletion of most of the long-gun registry was made possible with passage last year of Conservative MP Candice Hoeppnerʼs private memberʼs bill. Another driving force, says Gallant, was Saskatchewan MP Garry Breitkreuz. The Conservatives have stressed, in the

STEVE NEWMAN/METROLAND

Deep River Mayor David Thompson offers critical feedback to the Ministry of Transportation delegation at Renfrew County council. “This is the sixth funeral I have attended in the last two years of my residents in a small town (because of a Highway 17 accident). Theyʼre not bad drivers. There is something fundamentally wrong with this highway, and we cannot let this exist.” He concluded that the maintenance provided by a North Bay-based company was abysmal. He also recognized MTOʼs presentation that indicated that maintenance standards will increase for the winter of 2013-14, but that staff “be ever diligent this year so we can limit our fatalities.” In responding, MTO regional director Kathy Moore said these types of concerns are why the MTO is sitting down with the OPP to determine how the highway can be made safer. She said Thompsonʼs concerns would also be reiterated with the maintenance contractor for the Deep River section of Highway 17. More questions followed from county councillors, including several about when Phase 2 and 3 of Highway 417 might result in the fourlaning of the remaining 22 kilometres between Arnprior and Renfrew. MTO officials told county council that Highway 417 expansion is its highest priority, but that it still isnʼt part of the provinceʼs current five-year capital works plan. MTO said in its presentation that it has coordinated more than $250 million in highway improvements in Renfrew County since 2003. This work includes 37 of Renfrew Countyʼs 77 bridges or large culverts, while future projects include Petawawa River bridge rehab, Hwy. 60 to Hwy. 17 resurfacing, and the replacement of Constant Creek Bridge on Hwy. 132. lead-up to deletion of the long-gun registry, that firearms owners still need to undergo police background checks, pass a safety course, and comply with rules on gun storage and transportation. Media reports say the long-gun registry reached an estimated eight million firearms. The Conservatives have opposed the longgun registry for more than a decade. The hot-button topic likely cost Liberal MP Hec Clouthier his seat in Renfrew-NipissingPembroke in 2000, as Gallant, then of the Reform Party, was elected for the first time. She took advantage of local opposition to the long-gun registry act, in Bill C-68, and benefited from the local backlash to Clouthierʼs verbalized support for gun control. Clouthier later said he didnʼt favour the registry, but that he was merely trying to tow the Liberal Party line. Gallant has remained in power since then.

More land could be redesignated rural, to allow for housing starts Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland

ThereĘźs precious little residential property left for people looking to build homes in certain parts of Admaston-Bromley Township. But that may change before too long. An Oct. 16 visit by Renfrew County manager of planning services Charles Cheesman may have started the process to redesignate several properties from agricultural to rural, as part of the review of Renfrew CountyĘźs OfďŹ cial Plan. Admaston-Bromley ofďŹ cials are optimistic, but the

planning manager says cautiously: â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the early days, and thereĘźs a long process to redesignate any land from agricultural to rural.â&#x20AC;? Cheesman took last monthĘźs 2.5-hour tour of township properties with AdmastonBromley clerk-treasurer Bev Briscoe and roads superintendent Chris Kunopaski. Several properties designated agricultural, but thought by the township to have the potential to be changed to rural, were visited. When the tour was completed, Briscoe was pleased to say that Cheesman is enter-

taining recommendations that could lead to such changes for maybe 40 per cent of those properties. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rural property can be developed, but agricultural canĘźt. So the more rural property we have the more taxes weĘźll get because there can be more development,â&#x20AC;? said clerk-treasurer Briscoe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think Charles was quite pleased with the places we took him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Of course, thereĘźs pros and cons to it all, but the next step is to convince the Ministry of Ag and Food to consider (any of) our changes when they do

the countyĘźs OfďŹ cial Plan review.â&#x20AC;? ThereĘźs still plenty of land available for building homes in more forested areas as Shamrock, Ferguslea and Mount St. Patrick. But the same canĘźt be said about more open areas. These include properties on Highway 132, South McNaughton Road, Stone Road, Bulger Road and Cobden Road. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donĘźt want to interfere with good agricultural land,â&#x20AC;? stressed Briscoe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All weĘźre trying to do is see if we can get poor agricultural land changed to rural.â&#x20AC;? Cheesman was not agreeable to recommending rezoning sections on such roads as South McNaughton, Reid, Stone, Cheese Factory and Stoqua Creek. However, he indicated he was comfortable supporting recommendations to the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs to redesignate other properties.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;All weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to do is see if we can get poor agricultural land changed to rural.â&#x20AC;? RAYE-ANNE BRISCOE ADMASTON-BROMLEY MAYOR

This included Opeongo Road property; the Riverview Drive intersection along Highway 132 to Stone Road; parts of South McNaughton Road closer to Douglas; and property on Bulger Road and Micksburg-Burwell Road. Any changes are better than the way it is now, said Mayor Raye-Anne Briscoe, noting that many parcels of land in the 1980s were designated agricultural when they shouldnĘźt have been. Some of the designations defy common sense, suggests clerk-treasurer Briscoe, while noting that land on one side of the Admaston-Bromley municipal building is rural while

on the other side itĘźs agricultural. Approval of any changes, to create more rural designations, may be at least a year or two away, said the clerktreasurer. The process will involve consultation involving the county, the municipality, the province and landowners. Unlike most municipalities, Admaston-Bromley does not apply development charges for new home builders. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because there is such good agricultural land in our community, itĘźs very important that the little bits, that are not, are properly zoned,â&#x20AC;? stressed Mayor Briscoe. The mayor says some land designation done in the 1980s left something to be desired when tools used to create the townshipĘźs OfďŹ cial Plan included the Canada Land Inventory Act. With todayĘźs more sophisticated planning tools, more accurate designations are achievable, says Mayor Briscoe.

The purchase also provides land that should allow the township to increase the shelf life of the Osceola landďŹ ll site that is now only about 10 years. The purchase, said Briscoe, may quadruple that shelf life. Nearby, land within the Osceola landďŹ ll siteĘźs footprint should soon undergo a Stage 3 archeological assessment.

Therefore, the Algonquins of Ontario have requested approval for a Stage 3 assessment. The Stage 2 assessment

At the Nov. 28 session of Renfrew County council, three individuals or groups will be honoured with the ďŹ rst-ever WardenĘźs Community Service Awards. Approval of the annual awards came at a brief meeting of the property and development committee, just before county councilĘźs monthly meeting Oct. 31. The initial cost will be about $2,500. This will cover the cost of individual plaques and a larger plaque, to be hung at the entrance to the county council chambers with the recipientsĘź names. The money will come from the economic development marketing budget. Development and property director Paul Moreau said the awards are a way to recognize businesses, not-for-proďŹ t

groups and individuals for the contributions they make to Renfrew County, in improving the countyĘźs quality of life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;ItĘźs important to notice them and highlight what theyĘźre doing within our community,â&#x20AC;? said Moreau. â&#x20AC;&#x153;ItĘźs about time we started to recognize the good work that volunteer organizations, businesses and individuals do year in and year out in Renfrew County,â&#x20AC;? said Warden Bob Sweet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;ItĘźs a great opportunity to showcase that.â&#x20AC;? Sweet said the extent of contributions was highlighted during 2011Ęźs Expo 150, which was the countyĘźs 150th-anniversary celebrations. Also, Sweet said Renfrew County is sometimes a bit slow to recognize its own successes, and this is a chance to change that. The three award categories will be for individuals, notfor-proďŹ t organizations, and

for-proďŹ t businesses. The selection review committee is comprised of the warden, one other member of county council and the chief administrative ofďŹ cer. Nominees must live in Renfrew County. The development and property committee report says the valuable contributions made to our community â&#x20AC;&#x153;are not limited to providing employment and creating wealth. Individuals, businesses and organizations also make important decisions and take real action regarding their social responsibility.â&#x20AC;? Due to limited time before this yearĘźs presentations, the 2012 nominations will be made by Renfrew County elected ofďŹ cials and staff.. However, in 2013, both the general public and elected ofďŹ cials will be able to make nominations in all three categories.

Greater Madawaska council awaits decision on relief Peter Clark peter.clark@metroland.com

It remains status quo in Greater Madawaska regarding the townshipʼs bid for Ontario Disaster Relief Assistance Program assistance from the province. “We have not heard anything, positive, negative or otherwise. I called for an update as recently as yesterday,” township disaster relief co-ordinator Jim Lynch told council Oct. 23. In the aftermath of the July 23 macro-burst, the township applied for disaster relief. While the township and many of its residents sit in limbo for what they hope will be a positive response from the Ministry of Municipal Affairs & Housing (MMAH), it

doesnʼt mean things havenʼt been happening. Twenty-one transport loads of wood chips at $450 per load have been removed by Gro-Bark Industries of southern Ontario over a three-day period from the Norway Lake transfer station to be processed into landscaping materials, Lynch noted. “This represents about 850 tons of material removed,” Lynch added. Gro-Bark will be on-site at the Norway Lake transfer station in November to chip and remove the remaining wood debris from the storm, which amounts to another 800 tons of material. The grinding of construction waste at Mount St. Patrick has already been completed. “About two weeks ago, we

went back to normal operating hours at the Mount St. Patrick and Norway Lake transfer stations,” Lynch said. While there have been no further claims received in October from residents, agricultural operations or businesses affected by the storm, Lynch said several residents have called to enquire about the progress of disaster relief assistance. Lynch has received no complaints in any manner from residents. However, Coun. Glenda McKay, who lives at Norway Lake, has received some. “Iʼm not suggesting to reopen the extra (landfill site) hours, just to be aware,” she noted to Lynch. “Weʼll manage it on a caseby-case basis.”

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING APPLICATION FOR MINOR VARIANCE IN THE MATTER OF Section 45 of the Planning Act, and IN THE MATTER OF an application by Canadian Tire Real Estate Limited, Concession 3, Part Lot 9 and 10, known municipally as 15050 O’Brien Road. The purpose and effect of the minor variance from the Town of Renfrew Zoning By-law 46-2010 being sought may be briefly stated as follows: To request a variance to Section 8.2 (e) Exterior Side Yard Width (minimum) from 10.5 m to 0.5 m.

Itʼs been many, many years since Ernie and Bertha Eady eloped to Pembroke. So long ago, in fact, that a loaf of bread cost about nine cents and a stamp only three. The going rate of a car was just over $1,000. And, as 92-year-old Ernie was quick to point out at the coupleʼs 70th wedding anniversary celebration Oct. 28, the two dated for four years prior to getting married on Oct. 24, 1942. “So itʼs actually been 74 years,” he said with a smile. The secret to success, according to Ernie? Berthaʼs been a good wife, all around, he said. The now 91-year-oldʼs proficient housekeeping skills havenʼt hurt the situation either, he said. After the Pembroke ceremony back in 1942, the couple was honoured at a reception at the Eady family farm in Horton. The reason for eloping as Ernie explained it was numerous big family weddings being held at the same time. Family and friends, the Renfrew County Fiddlers and even Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MPP John Yakabuski and wife Vicky turned out at the Horton Commmunity Centre Oct. 28 for the party. Family photos, the original wedding announcement, and other memorabilia, including the wedding dress itself, were on display.

Dated at the Town of Renfrew this 5th day of November, 2012.

Maureen Taylor-Greenly, VP patient care and chief nursing officer at Queensway Carleton Hospital also speaks highly of her experience at RVH in 2001, and confirms, “Randy truly deserves to be recognized for his mentorship and his role in developing future health care leaders.” When she expressed an interest in experiencing a smaller community hospital setting “in a progressive rural community hospital, with a progressive CEO,” RVH was recommended to her. “It was a fantastic three months. Randy gave me access to all important senior committees such as the board, MAC and senior management and I was welcomed at all levels.

Randy Penney, president and CEO of Renfrew Victoria Hospital, has received the Preceptorʼs Award from the Master of Health Administration (MHA) program at the University of Ottawaʼs Telfer School of Management. The award was presented at a conference at the University of Ottawa Oct. 25. The Preceptorʼs Award honours senior health administrators who act as preceptors in Telferʼs MHA residency program and demonstrate excellence in providing learning opportunities to students. MHA students do fourmonth residencies in health care settings at more than 50 locations in the National Capital Region and across Canada. Penney, who has supervised seven MHA students over the years, says, “I have been a proud supporter of the MHA program, Telfer School of Management and the University of Ottawa, so this award is very humbling.” He adds, “One of the aspects I like most about the MHA program is the entire residency experience. It provides a good opportunity for students, preceptors, the university and faculty to come together to help train the leaders of tomorrow.” Brian Malcolmson, director of Telferʼs MHA program, notes that the program has been in existence for 48 years “so it is quite an honour for Randy to be among only four award winners to date.” The award, which was created in 2011, honours two preceptors a year, one in active service and one for past service. “Our MHA students are happy to do their residencies at Renfrew Victoria Hospital,” Malcolmson adds, “not only because of the learning opportunities there, but also the mentoring capability of Randy Penney.” Julia Atkinson, who works part-time at RVH as a special projects manager, as well as owning and operating a successful home care business in Ottawa, did her residency at RVH in the fall of 2010 as part of Telferʼs MHA program. “Randy exemplifies the word mentor,” Atkinson says. “He sees the potential in people and gently guides you to the realization of

Tax junk food and subsidize local farmers a better policy It was probably no coincidence that the OntarioĘźs doctors chose late October to levy their latest salvoes at junk food. Junk food is king at Halloween, with greedy youngsters (often urged on by their parents) hauling home sacks of candy, sugar and other treats full of salt and sugar. The doctors, in case you havenĘźt heard, are suggesting society combat obesity by dramatically increasing taxes on junk food. The docs suggest

a co-ordinated campaign involving education and taxation will help reduce junk food use, noting such an approach has dropped cigarette smoking rates. The doctors argue that such a push is warranted, claiming junk food is costing Ontario taxpayers $2.2 to $2.5 billion annually and will be a major factor in the prediction that todayĘźs children may be the ďŹ rst in the history of North America to live shorter lives than their parents.

If the doctors have their way, photos of clogged arteries will start appearing on bags of junk food and some items will not be able to be sold to minors. ItĘźs no surprise the Canadian Beverage Association has come out strongly against such moves, stressing its research shows Canadians want education not taxation or restrictions. The association says childhood obesity is too complex to be blamed entirely on junk food. Such things as

work habits, recreation trends, environment and heredity have an effect and should be tackled too if the doctors are serious about the problem, adds the association. As usual, both sides make some good points. However, itĘźs hard to believe the contention by some food retailers that fresh, nutritious food is no more expensive than junk food. Unfortunately, when youĘźre poor, itĘźs much easier to feed your family with junk or fast food. But if the doc-

torsĘź suggestion that we boost taxes on junk food catches on, it shouldnĘźt become just another cash grab for government. The best way would be to impose a local surcharge on certain particularly unhealthy foods and re-allocate the money to help area producers provide local healthy food options. It would be much more palatable for people to move away from junk food if the alternative was more affordable.

COLUMN

Report from Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Park John Yakabuski Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MPP

On Oct. 15 Dalton McGuinty announced that it was his intention to step down as premier as soon as a replacement was chosen. While I have said for some time that I did not believe that he would lead his party into another election, it is obvious that his sudden departure was one that was forced upon him by the work that Tim Hudak and the PC caucus have done to uncover what we now believe is a billion dollar power plant scandal. When the Speaker ruled that the government had to release all of the documents surrounding the deals cancelling and relocating the Mississauga and Oakville power plants, the government turned over 36,000 documents and told the Legislature repeatedly that was all they had. McGuinty said it himself. Energy Minister Bentley said it, as did House Leader John Milloy, along with numerous Liberal MPPs. On Friday, Oct. 12 it was revealed that they had discovered not two, not 200, but 20,000 additional pages of documents relating to the scandal. While itĘźs conceivable that two or even 20 pages of documents could be overlooked, I believe the only way 20,000 could possibly be missing is if someone was hiding them. Before the House voted to proceed with the contempt motion against Minister Bentley on Oct. 2, McGuinty pleaded over and over again to let the motion drop, now that they had released all of the initial 36,000 documents. When the legislature voted to proceed, the Liberals knew the jig was up. If we had voted not to proceed, I am absolutely convinced that no one; not the opposition, nor any member of the public, would have ever seen the additional 20,000 documents. I think McGuinty then knew that the House would now move to re-establish the committees that would begin a complete and thorough investigation of what happened and how much it would actually cost Ontario ratepayers. Stating his intention to step down as premier didnĘźt change anything, other than it necessitated a leadership convention within his own party. However, when he announced at the same time that he was proroguing the legislature, everything changed. With the Legislature not sitting, we will not be able to ask the questions in the House on your behalf to try to get to the bottom of this scandal. Even more signiďŹ cantly, we will not be able

to convene the committees that could call witnesses to testify under oath as to the role they played, or of any role that they were aware of that Liberal party operatives played. Since the prorogation Tim Hudak and the PC caucus have been demanding that the legislature be recalled so that these questions can be asked and the investigation can proceed. McGuinty has repeatedly refused. It should be pointed out that only the premier can recall the House, that opposition Members do not have the power to do it. If we did, we would have already done it. Future parliaments should consider whether or not we should continue to allow the premier to wield that kind of power. It seems very clear to me that a calculated decision has been made at the highest level of the Liberal party, that they would rather risk votersĘź anger at their decisions to suspend the business of the legislature than allow the truth to be known about this latest in a series of scandals. Not only the business surrounding the power plant decision and what I believe is surely a misappropriation of public money, but none of the other business of the legislature is proceeding either. All other business of the Legislature has ground to a halt as well. No bills, either government or Private Members, can be debated or passed during prorogation. ItĘźs apparent to me that members of his own government are uneasy with the situation. One by one, potential successors to McGuinty are jumping ship. The Liberal party looks to be crumbling under the weight of its own arrogance, believing it could govern as it wished, without being accountable to the people. I expect the people will have the opportunity to hold this government accountable in the spring of 2013. I am committed to making sure that people donĘźt forget what theyĘźve done, whether the legislature is sitting, or not. I want to take the time to also encourage everyone to wear a poppy and participate if they can in a Remembrance Day service in their community. While we should, every day and at all times, remember those who gave the ultimate sacriďŹ ce to defend the democracy and freedoms that we enjoy, we need to make special efforts on Nov. 11 to ensure that their sacriďŹ ces are never forgotten. We also need to thank surviving veterans for the commitment they made to us and our country in the defence of liberty. Lest we forget.

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

B) No. Encourage offices and schools to close in the morning so staff and students can attend the 11 a.m. ceremonies, but have them go back in the afternoon.

C)

We need to completely rethink the concept. Focus more on spirituality, charity, or political expression (words, not 23% Guy Fawkesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; way), or simply make it a day of reaching out to neighbours to celebrate your community.

Yes, with fewer and fewer veterans, making it an official holiday will help ensure we will never stop remembering the sacrifice of our vets and the horrors of war.

D)

No, making it just another holiday takes away its meaning, especially when people are taking it off a day later. To vote in our web poll, visit us online at www.yourottawaregion.com/community/ruralnorth

Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant, in a question to Federal Minister of Agriculture Gerry Ritz, confirmed that the federal government, in partnership with junior levels of government, is supporting Hay East by providing up to $3 million to help transport hay to those farmers in need. This announcement builds on an earlier tax deferral announcement for livestock producers in Ontario and Quebec. Gallant said rain shortages, coupled with record high temperatures, have left many

farmers in Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke in the Ottawa Valley and on both sides of the river, including the Pontiac and throughout Ontario, short of livestock feed. Gallant said Hay East 2012, a farmer and farm organization-led initiative, was created by western farm organizations that remember when eastern farmers sent hay west in 2002. “We applaud the efforts of farmers, like Hay West organizer Wyatt McWilliams, for helping farmers today,” she said.

Unlocked vehicles entered Renfrew OPP

Several unlocked vehicles were entered overnight Oct. 29. The vehicles were searched but nothing appears to have been stolen. The vehicles were parked on Farewell Street in Renfrew at the time. People are asked to keep their vehicles locked overnight, and to remove valuables from unattended vehicles. If you canʼt afford to lose it, donʼt leave it behind. CALLS FOR SERVICE

The Renfrew detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) responded to 134 calls for service during the past week. CRIME PREVENTION WEEK

Crime Prevention Week 2012 in Ontario runs Nov. 4 to 10. This yearʼs theme is Engaged Communities Prevent Crime, and this provides us with an excellent opportunity to highlight the value of community engagement to prevent victimization. A crime prevented is much more desirable and cost effective than a crime committed. Some of the many crime prevention programs delivered and promoted in the Renfrew OPP detachment area include OPP Lock it or Lose it; OPP Safeguard Ontario Property Security; OPP Robbery Prevention Program; OPP Community Bear Program; OPP Police Assisted Curriculum Education; and Operation Heat Positive Ticketing Program. Further information on crime prevention resources and programs is available at www.opp.ca under What We Do. SEXUAL ASSAULT INVESTIGATION

On Oct. 31 Police began to investigate after a victim reported being sexually assaulted by a male relative. The 15-year-old female victim reported being assaulted between 2004 and 2009. On Nov. 1 a 40-year-old male from Whitewater Region Township was arrested and charged with three counts of

sexual interference with a person under 16, and one charge of forcible confinement. He was released on a promise to appear in court and undertaking with conditions. The male will not be identified in order to protect the identity of the victim. Const. Rick Shikatani investigated. IMPAIRED DRIVER

On Friday, Nov. 2 at 11:25 a.m., Renfrew OPP officers attended a two-vehicle collision on Veterans Memorial Boulevard in Renfrew. One of the involved drivers failed a roadside alcohol test. Following further breath tests at the detachment, a 43-year-old Renfrew man was charged with impaired driving, driving over 80 mgs, driving while under suspension, and failing to yield to through traffic. He was released on a promise to appear in court in Renfrew on Dec. 14. Const. Joe Roach investigated. DOMESTIC DISPUTES

The Renfrew OPP responded to five domestic disputes. THEFTS

Several items were stolen from a backyard on Stewartville Road in White Lake on Friday, Oct 26. A telescope and gas can were reported missing. Const. Cosmo Longo is investigating. Const. Barry Richardson is investigating the theft of mail from a communal mailbox in McNabBraeside Township. The theft was discovered Oct. 30. A laptop computer was stolen in Renfrew Oct. 25. The owner was in the process of moving and discovered the laptop missing from the new residence on Oct. 29. The box the computer was packed in was moved, but when the owner went to unpack, the box was empty. A purse was stolen from No Frills parking lot in Renfrew Thursday evening, Nov. 1. The purse was left in a cart in the parking lot at about 5 p.m. The purse has since been recovered in a mailbox in Renfrew, but the cash, cell phone and identification remain outstanding. Const. Tony Gardiner is investigating.

MP Gallant introduces private bill to help disabled Renfrew-NipissingPembroke MP Cheryl Gallant introduced a Private Memberʼs Bill in the House of Commons Monday to restrict the fees charged to disabled Canadians by third party consultants to complete the form to receive the disability tax credit. Bill C-462 is an act restricting the fees charged by promoters of the disability tax credit and making consequential amendments to the Tax Court of Canada Act. “My decision to introduce legislation restricting the fees charged by promoters of the federal governmentʼs disability tax credit is the direct result of the aggressive tactics employed by one such promoter from the Toronto area who objected to my decision to issue a consumer alert. I wanted constituents to know they can access their federal Member of Parliament regarding any federal tax credit without being charged a percentage of the tax credit,” said MP Gallant. “Changes were put in place in 2005 that made benefits receivable on a retroactive basis. This change created a new incentive for those claiming to be consultants to work with Canadians on their claims. Unfortunately, without regulation in this area, some Canadians have been charged 20, 30, even 40 per cent of eligible payments for the services of these consultants. Often the only work involved is the completion of a two-page form,” said Gallant. “I think that those kinds of charges are unfair, especially when we consider that the purpose of the disability tax credit is to support Canadians living with a serious disability.” A news release from MP Gallantʼs office said there have been concerns raised by medical professionals who feel they are dealing with an increasing number of fraudulent claims and have at times felt pressured to fill out forms fraudulently by consultants. Some consultants have even taken the step of employing in-house medical practitioners to sign the medical portion of the disability tax credit application, perhaps having met the applicant only once and with no prior knowledge of the applicantʼs medical history. “This bill will allow the government to set new limits on the fees that consultants can charge in this area, and allow better oversight of the industry. “I am proud to introduce a bill that will ensure that the benefits of the disability tax credit will go to those who need it, not to unregulated consultants,” Gallant said.

Artist selling Christmas cards to benefit Renfrew Victoria Last year the Renfrew Victoria Hospital Foundation featured the work of Kathryn Bossy for its annual Tree of Lights campaign. This year the talented local artist has taken it upon herself to continue raising funds for her local hospital by offering a collection of the cards for sale. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Like so many people in the area, my family and I are very familiar with the services, clinics and labs offered to the community, beyond the emergency unit at RVH,â&#x20AC;? says Bossy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a topnotch hospital with the most professional staff working in all areas. We believe the administration leads by example, which has made RVH a model hospital in a rural setting. The effort to inform and teach the community about the day-to-day operations has been a priority for the hospital. The Call to Action initiative is part of this important campaign to promote awareness and personal responsibility for oneĘźs health.â&#x20AC;?

Kathryn Bossy is selling Christmas cards to benefit Renfrew Victoria Hospital.

With the help of the RVH Foundation and Kent Tubman of Tubman Marketing in Renfrew, she is supporting this initiative with greeting cards that feature trees. Bossy created the original artwork in mosaic style using glass, mirror, beads and paper. She explains that each tree represents someone she knows who has struggled or is living with cancer. The trees are bright, meaningful and hopeful, and the story of each person is on the back of the card. The packs have four different designs, with eight cards per pack. They are $15 with proceeds going to the Digital Mammography Unit and RVH Foundation. Cards are available at the RVH Gift Shop, the Renfrew and Area Chamber of Commerce ofďŹ ce on Raglan Street, or by emailing or calling Kathryn Bossy. Contact her at kathrynbossy@ yahoo.com or phone (613)433-4224. Bossy would like to thank everyone in advance for their support of this effort.

NATURE

The week of Bohemian waxwings and evening grosbeaks arrived JIM FERGUSON SCENE FROM THE HAWK’S EYE

BARRED OWLS CALL

This note was sent from Carol McCuaig. Hi, Jim & Ila: Last week I heard a pair of barred owls calling to each other at dusk. This happened for several evenings in a row. One was in the swamp and the other in the cedar bush, where I believe they may have nested. The nasty weather has brought plenty of birds to my feeder, including a pair of cardinals, a large flock of evening grosbeaks and several juncos. EVENING GROSBEAKS

JIM FERGUSON

Bohemian waxwing feeding on mountain ash berries. BOHEMIAN WAXWINGS

Bill Chown had about 250 waxwings arrive to feed on the fruit remaining on his berry bushes. Remick and Cathy Campbell had waxwings arrive to feed on apples and cranberries near their home. Jack and Margaret Dougherty had a large flock arrive to feed on the berries in their yard. Tracey Marki saw a flock of over 60 waxwings feeding on a favourite of theirs, mountain ash berries. Marlene Hanneman saw a flock of equal size feeding on buckthorn berries, another favourite fruit. Watch for large numbers of waxwings where there are mountain ash berries, wild crab apples, pin cherries, serviceberry, buckthorn berries and wild grapes. They will stay only as long as there is fruit to eat; once it is gone they are off to find a new food source.

Hi Jim and Ila: Over the last week we have had up to a dozen evening grosbeaks at our feeder on Goshen Road. This is the first we have seen since 1998. Very glad to see them again. John and Peg Reinwald Martina Harrington on James Crescent has had a flock of between 12 and 24 evening grosbeaks for the past two weeks. Christine Johnson writes, “We had seven evening grosbeaks at our feeder this morning. We live in Springtown on the Madawaska River. Love your column.” Ken and Dorothy Wilson at Ladysmith have a flock of evening grosbeaks feeding at their feeder on a daily basis. They live near Rueckwald Lake and saw a flock of 21 ring-necked ducks feeding and resting. Sharon Klink at Calabogie has a large flock of grosbeaks emptying her black oil seed feeders daily. In large flocks the grosbeaks are able to compete with the blue jays and can be very aggressive when food is involved. Terry Pierce has the regulars at his feeders and this

past week two pairs of cardinals and a flock of evening grosbeaks arrived. Both were very welcome after a summer of woodpeckers, chickadees, nuthatches and mourning doves. Randi Keith at Cobden has a flock of 21 evening grosbeaks and three adult cardinals at her feeders. Ron Huntley from Calabogie phoned to say that a male cardinal finally arrived at his feeder, the first one in eight years. As Ron said, “It was a long dry spell”.

Rexall Parma Plus would like to extend a warm welcome to our new pharmacy manager

MR. PAUL LEE Paul is a great addition to our store and community.

EMAIL FROM PAKENHAM

Hi Jim and Ila: Approximately a week ago we were seeing two or three evening grosbeaks around our feeders. Today (Sunday the 4th) we have somewhere between 30 and 40 of them feeding. The flock is heavily biased towards males. We feed black sunflower seed exclusively. We tried other things over the years, but settled on that which brought the most birds. We live on the 4th Concession of Pakenham Township. We have not seen any for the last three to five years, until this fall. Ken and Diny McNairn Large numbers of female grosbeaks and their young migrate south of the Great Lakes for the winter. Next spring the flocks will contain equal numbers of males and females. WHITE-WINGED CROSSBILLS

A flock of 12 white-winged crossbills have fed at Sybil and Ron Fergusonʼs feeders for a second time in two weeks. It is unusual for this species to frequent feeders but as they say, “You should never say never when dealing with nature.” Enjoy your birding.

It was the week that Bohemian waxwings (so called because of their wandering ways) arrived to harvest any fruit still on the trees and also the week the evening grosbeaks arrived at our feeders. Cardinals also arrived but nor at all feeders. The waxwings will stay until all the fruit has been consumed and the grosbeak and cardinals as long as we continue to put out sunflower seed for them.

Event honours Renfrew musicians, raises funds for Healing Garden at RVH Sherry Haaima sherry.haaima@metroland.com

Country music lovers and supporters of Renfrew Victoria Hospitalʼs Healing Garden were in for a special treat Oct. 28 at the Renfrew Armouries at a show and dance that honoured the areaʼs loved musicians. The event was a tribute to Renfrewʼs members of the Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame, explained event co-organizer Darrell Mooney, chair of the healing garden project. “And when the idea of a tribute show was raised we thought it was a good opportunity to raise money for RVHʼs healing garden,” said Mooney. Among the featured bands were The Douglas Connection, Dan Paul Rogers with family and friends, The Countrymen, Nashville recording artist Irene Kelley and Canadian fiddle champion Don Reed. Hall of famer Hughie Desmond of the Desmond Bros. was thrilled to be attending the event, especially in light of recent heart surgery. Desmond, who plays at the tribute every few years, said heʼs pleased to be involved with the wealth of talent found in Renfrew and the Valley. He and his late brother Bob were inducted into the hall of fame in 1989. “Itʼs a pleasure to be here,” he said. Photo displays, awards and newspaper clippings of the

honoured musicians were on offer for event goers. Among the hall of fame members honoured were Al Brisco, Desmond Bros., Harry Ferguson, Sonny Bill Inglis, Art Jamieson, Charley Kitts, Jim Mayhew, Mark Papousek, Bob Ranger, Dan Paul Rogers and Al Utronki. The healing garden at RVH is designed for cancer patients and their caregivers and families to enjoy while having

treatment at the hospital. It was Terry Eagan, of Waltham, Massachusetts, U.S., who came up with the concept for healing gardens after losing his wife, Mary, to leukemia in 1992. The Mary Eagan garden in the Bloch Cancer Survivors Park in Ottawa was the first of its kind in Canada. Eagan, who attended the Renfrew event, promotes the building of healing gardens

at medical venues where cancer patients are treated. Along with at RVH, there are gardens in the works at the Queensway-Carleton Hospital in Ottawa and in the GaltCambridge are. It is expected the RVH garden will take three to five years in the planning, development and building stages. It will provide a tranquil retreat during challenging times, say officials.

1977: Meeting to discuss shopping centre OLGA LEWIS

NORTH HORTON GETS NEW NEIGHBOUR: Mr. D.W. Budd sold two of Hortonʼs good farms this week to one man. They were known years ago as the New farms (and of late years owned by S. . Mason, who has become a resident of Renfrew, and by Joshua Price, who may follow Mr. Mason in becoming a resident of Renfrew.) The purchaser of the two farms is Mr. Henry Reid of Litchfield, Township of Pontiac County. Mr. Budd says Mr. Reid is a fine man, and he has been trying to get him to come over towards Renfrew for the past four years. The better schools of the district have convinced Mr. Reid to make the change. NEW MAPS OF CANADA: By compliment of Dr. Maloney, there came up from the Emigration Department of Ottawa this week to chairman of the Board of Education, five 1912 maps of Canada for the walls of some of the classrooms. The face of settled Canada changes so rapidly that it needs new maps nearly every year to keep up with the

growth. BLACKSMITH: S.B. Mason has taken Mr. Donohue into partnership in his blacksmithing business (formerly conducted by Mr. McVeigh) and the firm invites the custom of all desiring a good job in horseshoeing or any other kind of blacksmith work. NOVEMBER 4, 1937

A RAILWAY SIDING TO HIGH FALLS POWER HOUSE: Construction has begun upon a railway siding to run from Stoughtonʼs Crossing on the K&P Railway a few miles south of Calabogie to the High Falls of the Madawaska. The siding will have a length of three or four miles. Over it will be carried a large amount of heavy machinery to be used in the powerhouse, also the extensive lot of building material required for power house and residences of the staff. No longer can anyone suppose that the project was

ever a political dodge. NURSES COMPLETE A COURSE AT BROCKVILLE: Mrs. John Curry and Miss Catherine Curry attended the graduation exercises Tuesday evening, Oct. 28 at the Ontario Hospital Training School for Nurses, Brockville, when Miss Margaret Florence Curry of Renfrew graduated and received her pin and diploma. Ten nurses graduated, among whom were Miss Corrine Bridget Lorrain of Mount St. Patrick, Miss Corinthe Agnes Poland of Prescott, Miss Maude Gladys Chambers of Chrysler, and Miss Robena Elizabeth Waldron of Pakenham. NOVEMBER 9, 1977

SHOPPING CENTRE MEETING: Members of the Chamber of Commerce and the Retail Merchants Association had scheduled a meeting Tuesday with the mayor and council members on the proposed shopping centre. “Iʼd like to get together with members of the executive from the Merchants Association and the Chamber of Commerce

so we know what each otherʼs ideas are on the subject,” said Mayor (Lyons) Ringrose yesterday. “None of the developers have actually put any of their proposed ideas in writing, which makes most of the proposals rather tenuous,” he said. “We would like to get something on paper from each of the developers,” said the mayor, so we will have something written on which to go by. COUNCILLORS GET RAISE: Renfrew County Councillors passed a bylaw last Wednesday raising their salary levels by slightly less than 10 per cent. Previously the councillors received $55 for each county council meeting and each committee meeting. The new rate will be $60. The rate for half day and evening meetings will be $30, up from $27.50. Mileage at the rate of 18 cents per mile remains unchanged. Councillors receive mileage to and from council meetings to Pembroke and on other official business.

We would love for you to meet

St. Joe’s students celebrate wins

We would like you to meet the beautiful Lulu Belle, she was brought to the shelter in the summer, pregnant and about to give birth. After much TLC in her foster home, she has had her kittens and is now ready to find her forever home. Lulu Belle is about 1 ½ year old, she is a sweet, gentle girl with loads of personality. Lulu Belle is friendly, affectionate and loves attention, she will follow you around. She is curious, likes to explore and can be silly when playing with her favourite ball. She likes other cats and would be good with children. She is currently at the Arnprior Pet Valu for viewing. Lulu will make a wonderful addition to her new home!

Jaguar Journal

November can seem like a long and dreary month as the transition to winter continues, but at St. Joeʼs we begin a month of exciting activities. We are approaching the end of term one, which means the dreaded report cards will be sent home! Many universities will be visiting the schools this month and giving presentations to senior students who are deciding where to attend university. October ended with a spooky day of Halloween fun. Student council set up a haunted house, and the bravest students dared to enter it. A lot of great costumes were

seen throughout the halls, with the teachers participating as well. Last Friday St. Josephʼs hosted the first playoff games for girlsʼ basketball. The Jaguars celebrated two wins with a loud and enthusiastic pep rally that included a marching band, dancing and a lot of cheering. The long-awaited Jag Hunt began this Monday, kick-starting two months of suspenseful stalking. Friday will mark the end of round one, and the successful hunters will advance to the second round. The Jag Hunt will continue until the Christmas holidays, when one student will be crowned the winner.

The Dominican Republic team continues to fundraise for its upcoming mission trip. On Oct. 12 and 13, the DR team raised $1,460 through a tag day. The team would like to thank the LCBO, Giant Tiger, Rexall and Canadian Tire for their support and allowing us to stand outside of their stores. The team would also like to thank all of the donors for their continuing generosity. The people of the Dominican Republic are always grateful for the ongoing kindness from our community.

MP opposes proposed name change for riding John Carter john.carter@metroland.com

Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant said sheʼll fight to keep Nipissing as part of the name of the riding. Gallant made a submission to the Electoral Boundaries Commission for Ontario Monday in Ottawa, requesting the withdrawal of the recommendation that the ridingʼs name be changed to RenfrewPembroke. “They gave no reason (for the recommendation) and considering the ridingʼs boundaries arenʼt changing, it makes sense to keep the name,” she told The Renfrew MercuryEMC. She told the Commission that as MP for the riding for the past 12 years, she is pleased no boundary changes are being proposed. “This makes absolute sense as the slight population variance from the provincial quota, 3.46 per cent, made your job easier compared to other parts of Ontario when it came to determining the electoral boundary for Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke,” she told the Commission. “Unlike ridings in northern Ontario, which have experienced population decreases, or southern Ontario, with large population increases, Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke enjoys a stable

population in keeping with the provincial average.” Gallant pointed out the portion of Nipissing District in the riding, made up of the recently municipally amalgamated community of South Algonquin and relatively unpopulated sections of Algonquin Provincial Park, has a geographic and historic community of interest with Renfrew County. The area is tied to Renfrew County by Highway 60, and doesnʼt have major links to any other riding, she said. “It made complete sense to include that part of Nipissing District with Renfrew County for electoral purposes,” she said. “They already tend to feel isolated …. so should continue to be recognized in our riding name,” she added. Gallant also argued that a change would create unnecessary expense. The financial cost of changing every reference, disposing of letterhead and business cards, and paying someone to change websites is not justified, she said. “While some may argue this is the cost of democracy in Canada, others in the political process argue we spend too much on Parliament and the actual cost of representation, including the current process to increase the number of MPs in Ottawa. Reasonable cost saving should be considered

and I ask that this consideration be made in retaining the Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke Riding name.” Gallant did say that the proposed increase of 15 new rid-

ings in Ontario was justified considering the provinceʼs increase in population since the last redistribution of seats. While the boundaries of Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke

see no change, the proposal would have Mississippi Mills split from West Carleton and moved into a Lanark-based riding, as urged by many in the Pakenham-Almonte area.

Water Response Team

Wells Going Dry Across the County Despite recent rainfall, the groundwater levels have not shown any significant level of recharge, and they are below normal across the County. Even if we experience significant rainfall this autumn, our groundwater levels may not re-charge adequately for the winter months.

Well drillers recommend taking action now, before freezing temperatures arrive and difficulties and costs increase.

Water Conservation Target - 20% Reduction in Water Use. Suggestions for residents relying on groundwater and wells: If you have a dug well where you can safely and easily measure the level, record it and check weekly to determine if your well is recharging or if you are at risk of losing your water supply. Turn off electrical power to pump prior to measuring. Do not attempt to measure levels in a drilled well - consult a well drilling contractor. Indicators of low water: lower than normal flows, sediment in the water or cloudy water all indicate low well water levels. You should immediately consult a licensed water well driller. The Renfrew County & District Health Unit is recommending that you have a water quality test performed to ensure your groundwater is safe for human consumption.

Remembrance Day ceremonies allow former soldiers to remember and salute their comrades who died in combat, and reminds all Canadians to consider the sacrifices that these people have made, and the tragedies they’ve endured, on their behalf. However, we shouldn’t forget those who survived, and those currently deployed in other operations. The men and women of the Canadian Forces have demonstrated time and time again that they can rise to any challenge.

Kathryn David moves the ball up the court in the St. Joe’s Junior Jaguars victory over Fellowes High School.

Jaguars top Raiders twice in hoops playoffs Peter Clark peter.clark@metroland.com

The Renfrew Collegiate Raiders and St. Josephʼs Jaguars fuelled their cross-town rivalry this past week as the two schools met twice in Upper Ottawa Valley High School Athletic Association girls basketball playoffs. The Jaguars came out on the top side of the local battle on both occasions. Sonya Bergin and Shannon Charbonneau had 11 and 10 points respectively in their quarterfinal match to lead the Jaguars past the Raiders 43-20 in a noisy Jaguars gymnasium last Thursday. “Excellent work on the defensive side of the ball by all the girls led to the highly successful Jaguar offence,” Jaguars coach Mike McMahon said. Kaleigh Nichol scored eight points for RCI.

The Junior Jaguars were also triumphant in their quarterfinal. Kayla Hintz knocked down a dozen points to steer St. Josephʼs past the Fellowes Falcons 46-26. Coach Mark Valliquette said a tough team defence led by Jocelyn Virgin helped solidify the win. That set up a Jaguars-Raiders confrontation Tuesday at RCIʼs Grant Gymnasium. The play of both teamsʼ defence stood tall. The Raiders jumped out to a 6-2 lead in the first quarter. But the Jaguars matched it in the second, leaving the schools deadlocked 8-8 at the half. St. Josephʼs carried a tense 12-10 lead into the final quarter before Kathryn David became the difference maker. The Jaguars sniper netted all seven of her teams points in the final stanza to keep the Jaguars one step ahead of the Raiders. See JAGUARS, page 32

Oh, how we miss the Old Barn on nights like this Friday nightʼs Wolves game rekindled some old memories, but youʼd have to be a part of Renfrewʼs hockey crowd born no later than around 1970 to appreciate it. Friday night game times back in the day changed a few times – 9 and 8:30, before finally settling on 8 p.m. That was perfect for Argyle Street arena-goers. Although the games took longer to play in those days, the first period was usually over some time around 8:45 p.m.

PETER CLARK PETER’S PUTTERINGS That gave fans an intermission to decide, “Should I run down to the liquor store and pick up another mickey?” Well, I can tell you, last Friday night I was dreaming about the old Renfrew Arena-to-LCBO sprint. With Ottawa West leading the Wolves 5-zip after 20 minutes, it was the perfect scenario.

Hip, hip, hooray: Renfrew recreation director Barclay Mayhew recently had a hip replacement. He is expected to make a complete recovery. The Dragonfly golf league can

look forward to seeing more of that patented silky smooth swing with the Rink Rats in the 2013 season. Beating time: If you have a Wolves pocket schedule, it says the Junior B team has a home game versus Shawville on Friday, Dec. 21. However, that is the day the world ends, according to the Mayan calendar, so the game has been moved up to tomorrow night, Friday, Nov. 9 at the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre. Game time is 8 p.m. Making their goals count: The

Renfrew Timberwolves have been outscored 30-27 over the past six games. Bottom line, theyʼve won five of them. Raptors right on schedule: Iʼve been following the NBAʼs Toronto Raptors a bit more closely lately. Iʼm looking to see how close they come to my pre-season prediction of finishing 32-and-50. They are currently 1-and-3 after four games, which is pretty well right on schedule.

Powerplay key in Wolvesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; road win Leighton 12th in world powerlifting Peter Clark peter.clark@metroland.com

ItĘźs anyoneĘźs guess how a team can piece together an impressive four-game winning streak, including two in tough rinks, and then return home to lose 11-0. The loss came before the home folks Friday night, but the Renfrew Timberwolves showed their own resilience Sunday by getting back on the winning track. The Wolves climbed up off the carpet with a pair of thirdperiod markers in the last two minutes to claim a big two points from the Stittsville Royals, 5-4 at the Stittsville Recreation Complex. The win upped RenfrewĘźs record to 8-7-0-and-1. The Wolves are in a threeway tie with the Arnprior Packers and Perth Blue Wings for ďŹ rst place in the Valley loop, with Stittsville one point behind. WOLVES 5, STITTSVILLE 4

The Wolves actually trailed 4-1 late in the second period when the powerplay went to work. Scott Conroy and Tanner Smith scored in the last 1:41 of the period to make it 4-3, and when StittsvilleĘźs Nate Blenkarn got himself kicked out and also presented Renfrew with seven minutes worth of powerplay time with just 1:56 left in the third period. It gave the Wolves one more opportu-

nity. Dick not only tied the game for the Wolves with 1:24 remaining, but he also saved the game from going into overtime when he launched the game winner with just 24 seconds left. Coupled with a Casey Doner goal in the ďŹ rst period, it marked RenfrewĘźs ďŹ fth powerplay goal of the afternoon. Dick also added two assists, while Conroy checked in with three helpers. Matt Gagne blocked 31 shots to earn the win. StittsvilleĘźs Arun Kumar made 29 stops. These two teams are starting to develop a ďŹ erce rivalry. They combined for 181 penalty minutes in a Sept. 28 game at the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre. This one came with 165 minutes. Matthew McIntyre, Kurtis Leclaire, Ryan Eady and Dylan Zavitske were all gone well before the last minute dramatics. The Wolves were also without two snipers in Drew Anderson and Jesse Riopelle to start with. WEST 11 WOLVES 0

Fresh off their heart-stopping 6-5 overtime victory in Ottawa only eight days before, you would think the Wolves to be gung ho and prepared for a rematch on home ice. For whatever reason, they werenĘźt. Sonya Bergin sang the na-

tional anthem at 8 p.m. By 8:30, the game was over. Ottawa West led 5-0, and added ďŹ ve more in the middle frame before tacking on a solo tally in the third period. Ryan Sterling snared a hat trick for the Golden Knights. J.J. Pristanski had the easy shutout. Matt Gagne got the start for the Wolves. Nicolas Hodgins took over after the ďŹ fth goal. People who stuck around after the 50-50 draw saw a melee in which six players were tossed for ďŹ ghting with 11:40 remaining. Lyle Stressman, Casey Doner and Adam Pearson received early exits, joined by Ottawa WestĘźs Ross Fleming, Brad Mason and Damian Armstrong. The Wolves Kurtis Leclaire received a game misconduct for his part in a scrap in the second period. In all, the Wolves took 120 minutes in penalties and Ottawa West 77. WOLVES HOWLINGS

The Wolves host the Pontiac Juniors Friday at 8 p.m. The game does not appear on the pocket schedules. The Wolves are not in Almonte this Sunday. The game was rescheduled and played two weeks ago. The Wolves do, however, travel to the Canterbury (Brian Kilrea) Arena in Ottawa for a 7:20 p.m. contest versus the Ottawa Canadians Tuesday.

Montreal Canadiens head scout Trevor Timmins was a guest of the St. Josephʼs Catholic High School hockey academy Oct. 30. The Pakenham native formerly worked with the Ottawa Senators, and has been a part of the National Hockey League scene since 1992. He played hockey in the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League with the Arnprior Packers and attended Queenʼs University. Timmins gave a brief description of what scouts look for in a player; specifically identifying potential assets in young players. Talent is one of the assets that scouts look for. “Talent involves a combina-

tion of hockey sense, skating, and hands,” Timmins said. “Itʼs not necessarily a given, as intangibles work alongside with talent. Intangibles are what scouts say make a player stand out: things such as character, competitiveness, size and strength,” he said. “To show good character, a player must show good leadership skills, maintain a team first attitude, and remain a person of good character,” Timmins explained. Drive, determination and aggressiveness are also important, he said. Size and strength is something that Timmins says is not controllable, but whether a player uses these attributes to his advantage is. “All of these factors are important when scouting players,” Timmins added.

Trevor Timmins, head scout for the Montreal Canadiens, was a guest of the St. Joseph’s Jaguars hockey academy last week.

He showed his calendar for the month of October. Scouts are sent all over the globe to watch players that hold potential. Not only is it necessary to view all these players once, but usually numerous times to see the playerʼs consistency. Keeping reports of these athletes is another critical part of the job, Timmins said at the academy. He said perseverance, selfdiscipline, motivation and a clear vision are important, whether you be an elite athlete, or in any other walk of life. He advised players to work hard and further their education as much as possible, and not forget to do the extras. “These skills will ensure success wherever one applies them,” Timmins added.

Jaguars host county volleyball playoffs

Your Community Newspaper

Peter Clark peter.clark@metroland.com

The St. Josephʼs Jaguars capped off the 2012 senior boys volleyball season with a 3-0 win over the Arnprior Redmen Oct. 30. Trent Skelhornʼs crew finishes at 10-and-0, the teamʼs second consecutive first-place and undefeated regular season. They hosted the opening round of the Upper Ottawa Valley High School Athletic Association playoffs Tuesday, and swept both the Fellowes Falcons and Madawaska Valley District Wolves 3-0. As a result, the Jaguars have earned the right to host the Renfrew County semifinal and final today (Thursday) at the home gymnasium. St. Josephʼs meets the Opeongo Wildcats at 10 a.m., followed by a General Panet Panthers versus Madawaska semifinal. The championship this afternoon will start around 1 p.m. JUNIOR JAGUARS IN SEMIFINAL

The Junior Jaguars finished third with a 5-and-2 record, and travelled to Pembroke Tuesday to challenge the Opeongo Wildcats and host Bishop Smith Crusaders in junior boys volleyball post-season action. The Jaguars blanked Opeongo 3-0, and then up-ended the league leading Crusaders 3-2 to secure their spot in the semifinal. That result also eliminated Bishop Smith from further competition. The Jaguars are in Deep River today to take on Fellowes in a junior semifinal. The winner advances to this afternoonʼs county final.

Jaguars advance to county junior final From page 25

David finished with nine points while Kayla Hintz added four. Andrea Martin collected seven points and Sage Melville five to lead the Raiders. “It was a strong effort,” Jaguars coach Mark Valliquette said. “It extends our season.

We had strong team defence. Iʼm proud of the girls.” Passing up shooting opportunities hurt the Raiders, coach Jason Wilson said. “You canʼt score if you donʼt shoot.” The Jaguars meet the Redmen in Arnprior today at 3:30 p.m. Regardless of the outcome, the Jaguars have quali-

Riders on the loose at fairgrounds

Salute 100,000 Canadians, including several locally. Attend the Remembrance Day ceremonies Sunday Nov. 11 in front of the cenotaph at Low Square.

OPEN HOUSE Saturday, November 10th, 1pm-3pm

Ready to race at the Renfrew Fairgrounds Sunday morning are, from left, Calabogie’s Noah Matthews in the under-11 class, and Wesley Matthews and Tyler Lefebvre in under-13 event. Each venue presents many of the same, yet different, challenges. Hills throughout the trails

and valleys of Ma-Te-Way Park are steeper, but the grades at the fairgrounds for the riders are also deceiving.

Cyclocross riders make their way around the course at the Renfrew Fairgrounds Sunday morning. The cold weather and blustery winds weren’t about to stand in their way.

The Renfrew Collegiate Raiders finished off the 2012 Upper Ottawa Valley High School Athletic Association senior girls basketball regular season with a 32-25 win over Fellowes Falcons Oct. 30 in Pembroke.

Grace Stewart, Courtney Miller, and Carly McHenry also turned in big performances at both ends of the floor, RCI coach Adam Noack said. Andrea Martin had 10 points in RCIʼs 29-25 junior triumph over Fellowes. The RCI senior boys volleyball team completed their year with a 3-1 win over Pembrokeʼs Jeanne Lajoie Chevaliers Nov. 1.

The Ottawa Bicycle Club returned to Renfrew for the second time this season. They were at Ma-Te-Way Park Oct. 14. On Sunday, the venue for cyclocross racing was the Renfrew Fairgrounds. Conditions were cold and the wind blustery, but that didnʼt deter the competitors in the seventh stop on the 10race series running throughout the fall. The riders have raced in snow before, as long as itʼs not too heavy, race organizer Bob Woods said. Racers ride on grassy fields, dismount their bikes and carry them over barriers, run up steep, short hills and ride through sand pits or mud, depending upon conditions.

For her life more abundant, For us a guiding star Love, Hailey, Cam & Tee

The moment that you died Our hearts split in two. The one side filled with memories The other side died with you. We often lay awake at night When the world is fast asleep And take a walk down memory lane With tears upon our cheeks. Remembering you is easy... We do it every day. But missing you is a heartache That never goes away. We hold you tightly within our hearts And there you will remain. Life has gone on without you But it will never be the same. For those who still have their husbands and dads Treat them with tender care. You will never know the emptiness As when you turn and he is not there.
