The Renfrew Mercury EMC has been nominated as one of the topthree newspapers in its circulation class in Ontario. The Ontario Community Newspapers Association announced the nominations last Thursday. The Mercury will compete against the Dundas Star News and Elmira-Woolwich Observer for top honours in the class for newspapers with circulation of 12,500 to 22,499. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The nomination is a reďŹ&#x201A;ection of a hard-working and dedicated news team of Steve Newman and Peter Clark,â&#x20AC;? says Mercury news editor Lucy Hass.

Their work is complemented by a corps of dedicated contributors like Jim Ferguson who writes Scene from the HawkĘźs Eye, Olga Lewis who gives readers a look back From the Old Files, and a wide range of local contributors who submit items on everything from sports to art. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our readers understand that this is their community newspaper and we appreciate the active interest they take in the paper,â&#x20AC;? Hass said. The general excellence category is judged on 11 speciďŹ c criteria, from advertising and press quality, to writing and photography.

General Excellence Awards recognize overall achievement by circulation class in editorial, advertising and layout. The awards gala, where the order of the top-three ďŹ nalists will be announced, will be held on Friday, March 22 in Vaughan. The West Carleton Review EMC is up for Best News Story â&#x20AC;&#x201C; written by interim managing editor Theresa Fritz.

Terry McHale sits back in a chair at the Douglas Tavern holding the charter plaque for the Douglas Lions Club. ItĘźs an appropriate place to display the names, too, since this is where club members meet the ďŹ rst and third Tuesday nights of every month. The plaque contains signatures of the clubĘźs 31 charter members. They are all dead now, but McHale says they sowed the seeds for a club that has much to be proud of over the years. Those ďŹ rst members included McHaleĘźs dad, Martin, as well as Arnold OĘźNeill and son Tony of the village business, A.J. OĘźNeill & Sons. This Saturday night, Douglas Lions Club members and other invitees will meet up the street, at St. MichaelĘźs Catholic School, for a catered supper and celebration of the clubĘźs 65th anniversary. These days club membership is down, but its focus on helping community members and community projects in the area continues. Major projects include the Santa Claus Parade, the summer ďŹ shing derby and Frosty Fun winter carnival. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The clubĘźs probably the best thing that ever happened to the Douglas area,â&#x20AC;? says Terry McHale while referring to the clubĘźs contributions toward the local ball ďŹ elds, the hockey rink, getting local kids to the pool in Anrprior, and more. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If thereĘźs a family in need a lot of time we can reach in a give them a lift,â&#x20AC;? says McHale. â&#x20AC;&#x153;ItĘźs been a great club, a great social club and a beneďŹ t to the community.â&#x20AC;?

J.R. Booth was a railway magnate at the turn of the 20th century.

History at Algonquin Park


Peter Clark

“Donald Beaupre has spent more than 80 summers at Algonquin Park, and has seen the disappearance of many landmarks,” noted Jim McGregor as his introduced Beaupre, guest speaker at the Heritage Renfrew annual general meeting held at the Renfrew Legion hall Feb. 6. Beaupre has local ties. His father was born in Beachburg and educated at Renfrew Collegiate Institute, McGregor added. “Don has researched the history of these sites and has preserved their memory in his book, Destination Algonquin Park.” Beaupre spoke of lumber baron John R. Booth and his railway, the Ottawa, Arnprior and Renfrew, which connected Renfrew to the rest of the world in 1893. His railway – later the Ottawa, Arnprior and Parry Sound Railway – proceeded west to Parry Sound, cutting through Alqonquin Park. “The book is 300 pages and most of the photographs are almost a century old and have been digitally enhanced,” Beaupre said. Booth was a Canadian rags to riches story. Born in Quebec, by the time he was in his 60s, he was a very wealthy man. He was featured a number of years back at the Renfrew Lumber Baron Festival. “He became the builder of the longest railway ever built by one man,” Beaupre said. His rail line ran pretty well parallel to todayʼs Highway 60. “Have you ever wondered why the towns are roughly 20 minutes apart?” Beaupre asked. “This is the distance that a team of horses could travel in one day. “A station was built at Wilno. It proved very useful to Booth when a land speculator in Barryʼs Bay thought that he could get an exorbitant price for land that Booth wanted for the station. But Booth outfoxed him. He said, OK then, Wilno will be the station for Barryʼs Bay.” People had to travel seven miles from the Bay to the Wilno station. “Soon, public pressure persuaded the man to ask for a more reasonable price for his land, which was purchased for the stationʼs site, which you can still see today.” At its peak, 20 trains travelled through Algonquin Park on a daily basis, but because of the number of bridges and safety regulations, Boothʼs

The best bread from Burnstown Don Beaupre trains could not travel as fast as those on the lines north and south of his which, in later years, became a competitive disadvantage, Beaupre explained. At one time, Booth had 1,000 men working on the railway. Even at only a few dollars a day, this injection of cash was a great boost to the economy. A timetable from 1897 showed trains leaving Parry Sound arrived in Ottawa about 12 hours later. “On its way through Algonquin Park, trains would stop to let fishermen on and off. This was the start of tourism in the park,” Beaupre added. The railway was eventually bought out by the Grand Truck Railway, and in later years, taken over by Canadian National. “Management of the Grand Trunk Railway decided to erect some tents in the northern end of Cache Lake. The experience was a great success, and so, in 1908, a small wooden hotel named the Highland Inn was constructed,” he said. Its sister Grand Truck hotel, the Chateau Laurier, was under construction in Ottawa at the same time. Room rates at the Highland Inn were as high as $18 per week. “The morning train would depart Cache Lake for Ottawa, 168 miles and six and a half hours away. To Renfrew, about four hours.” But as the automobile arrived and more hotels were built, passenger and freight revenue plummeted. “CNR declared some trestles were unsafe and shut them down, effectively cutting the railway in half,” Beaupre said. “Sadly, the old wooden hotel was closed down in 1956, and removed in 1957. “The automobile started in mass production the same year (1908) the hotel was built,” Beaupre said. “So the hotel and the station are gone, and the area is overplanted with red pine. The stairs at the station platform walk to nowhere.”

Local girl tops at national competition Steve Newman

Competing comes naturally to 12-year-old Dayna Schaly of Burnstown. But winning first place in a national bread-baking contest came as a big surprise. The youngster recently received her grand prize, a Sony portable music player, for winning the Beginners Best bread youth category. She did so with a doublebraided bread after getting the translation from a neighbourʼs German recipe. There were three braids on the top layer and five on the bottom layer, while the bread had a golden look after being brushed with egg yolk. “Itʼs pretty cool. I didnʼt expect to win,” says Dayna, whose entry was judged at the national level after winning her junior division at the 2012 Renfrew Fair. That win came after the 23-inch bread nearly didnʼt fit in the oven at home. “The fair has been a big part of her life,” says her mom, Marlene, whose daughter has competed at the fair since age four, while excelling in the horticulture and art categories. “She hasnʼt missed a year. Itʼs a lot of effort, but we value our country fair.” In 2011, Dayna entered 22 categories, including several with the adults, and came away with 20 prizes, including 11 firsts. In addition to her horticultural and artistic ventures, Dayna also enjoys making chocolate chip cookies and desserts. “I donʼt even do breads that much,” says Dayna. “I think she likes the reward of seeing how well she does,” adds mom. “She just does her best and feels really rewarded (doing that).” Daynaʼs winning entry was judged on appearance,

taste, texture and recipe creativity. “Iʼm very proud of her accomplishment,” said Gladys Curry, chairperson of the Renfrew Fairʼs junior fair committee. Curry noted the win came after the Renfrew Fair introduced youth bread-baking categories in 2012. Marlene, and Daynaʼs grandparents Hank and Hennie Schaly, are frequent competitors at the Renfrew Fair in the horticulture and/or art divisions.

The Douglas Lions Club has turned out in support of the Renfrew & Area Health Service Village’s Doctor Recruitment Campaign in their usual generous style. Vice chair Peter Emon accepts a cheque for $1,000 from Lion Bill McLeod. The RAHSV has recruited seven of 14 doctors they have committed to bring to our area by the end of 2015. With generous support from community groups, corporate sponsors and the public, they hope to fulfill that mandate. In late 2012, the RAHSV adopted the slogan “Invest In Your Health” to help illustrate to residents of Horton, Greater Madawaska, Renfrew and AdmastonBromley that this campaign will benefit all residents when a full complement of doctors is practicing here. Pictured left to right are Terry McHale, Barbara May, Melissa Vanderwal, Otto Schreiber, Donna Bimm, Kevin VanWoezik, Eve Dale, Peter Emon, Harold Gallagher, Ken Bimm, Billy McLeod, Hubert Wilson, Dave Quenneville and Duncan McQuitty.

DOUGLAS Continued from front

As with other service clubs in the Renfrew area, itʼs more difficult these days to maintain a strong fundraising force. Membership dropped to 13 with the December 2012 death of long-time and outstanding club member Jim Gilchrist. However, two new members are expected to bring membership up to 15 in the next little while. Kevin Van Woezik was president when the club celebrated its 50th anniversary in 1998. At that same celebration, the clubʼs last active charter member, Terry OʼNeill, was recognized with an award by District A-R Governor Jim Duff. “Some of the guys I looked up to, like Steff Heebink and Jim Gilchrist, asked if I wanted to join,” said Van Woezik, thinking back to when he joined the club in 1991. “They were guys who did a lot for the community. They always seemed to be helping people, and thatʼs what the Lions Club is all about,” added Van Woezik. “Itʼs a good feeling to be able to help your community. Itʼs really an honour.” The once all-male membership now includes females. In fact, three generations of one family were members until

Gilchristʼs recent death, the other family members being his daughter Donna Bimm and granddaughter Melissa Vanderwal. Vaderwal says her grandfather said Lions Club membership was all about community involvement and getting yourself “out there to give back to the community. He always felt volunteering was important.” Over the years, the club used bingos and the sale of Nevada tickets as major fundraisers, but that has evolved in recent years. The bingos and Nevada sales are gone, while pancake breakfasts and chip wagon sales at such prominent events as the St. Patrickʼs Day Parade account for much of the fundraising. Recently, the club has provided donations for Renfrew and Area Health Services Village doctor recruitment, Hospice Renfrew and the Pembroke Regional Hospitalʼs MRI fund. The current club president is Harold Gallagher. His father (Harold Sr.), brothers (Paul and Tom) and brotherin-law Ray English have each been members, but Harold didnʼt get around to joining until later. Now 66, the Douglas native says, “I thought I was too busy when I was growing up. The trouble is I missed a whole lot. I missed out on a

whole lot of camaraderie.” Much of that camaraderie was enjoyed by the clubʼs 31 charter members. For the record, they are: Arnold OʼNeill, D.C. McEachen, Duncan McLeod, Stanley Bolger, Carl Scott, Robert McNab, Martin McHale, Joseph Breen, T.M. Neville, Cecil P. Simpson, Malcolm McNab, D.S. McEachen, Jerry Sheehan, Gordon Crogie, Percy James, Roy McGregor, Lornie McGregor, Michael OʼNeill, Anselm OʼNeill, Joseph McHale, Larry Moriarty, Cameron Stokes, D. Lynch, Wilburn Neville, Harold McQuitty, Alex James, James Purdie, Joseph Neville, Harold McEachen, John McDonald, Ira Richards, Neil H. Livingston, Allan Stewart, Stewart Ryan, Merrit Morton, Eddie Beach and P. Redmond. Lions Club six major objectives include the fostering of a spirit of understanding in the world; promotion of good citizenship; and the encouragement of service-minded citizens to serve in their community without personal financial reward. • The author of this story is the grandson of Harry A. Newman, who became the first Canadian president of Lions Club International. He served as president for the 1924-25 term. He died in 1976.

Conference Explored Opportunities for Economic Prosperity through Tourism at Calabogie Peaks Resort February 13th. Pembroke, ON. The Ontario’s Highlands Tourism Organization (OHTO) brought together economic developers, destination marketers, funding partners, and government organizations for a day of collaborative discussion around strengthening the tourism industry in Ontario’s Highlands. The conference included a presentation of the Ontario Tourism Investment Strategy, the OHTO Tourism Development Partnership Program and a workshop delivered by the Tourism Café from Victoria, BC, on how to enhance the visitor experience by focusing on what the traveler wants instead of selling what a destination has to offer. “It is no secret our rural communities have been struggling to revitalize their economies,” but Nicole Whiting, Manager of OHTO stated “momentum is building around exploring ways to support growth in the tourism and hospitality sector. More and more of our community leaders understand the significant economic impact a visitor has on a community both in terms of their immediate visit, but also in terms of the potential to convert that visitor into a resident or business owner. We were very excited to provide a forum to learn about what we need to do as a destination to become more appealing to the visitor.” Attendees were surprised to learn this may not mean investing more in advertising. Nicole explains, “Competition in the tourism industry is fierce and successful destinations are not necessarily the ones that have the biggest marketing budgets. These destinations understand the importance of creating positive memorable experiences for the consumer and this “experience” is a combination of their stay accommodations, the activities they take part in with operators, right down to the service they receive at a local gas station. If the visitor leaves feeling valued and has experienced something truly unique, not only will they be back, but they will be sharing their stories with their friends and family.” The conference provided attendees with the information they need to understand how they can work together collaboratively to ensure their communities meet the needs of the visitor. Sources of support available to organizations looking at developing programs around destination development were also shared. The OHTO is a not-for-profit organization mandated by the Province of Ontario to increase tourism within the counties of Haliburton, Lanark, and Renfrew and portions of Frontenac, Hastings, and Lennox and Addington. The OHTO works in collaboration with eight sub-regional marketing organizations, tourism agencies and authorities including: Algonquin Nation, Bancroft & District Chamber of Commerce,, Haliburton Highlands, Lanark County Tourism, Land O’ Lakes Tourist Association, Ottawa Valley Tourist Association, and the Rideau Heritage Route Tourism Association.

Dental care a world away Steve Newman


Itʼs a holiday, but a whole lot more, for Dr. Janice King. Next month sheʼs headed to Nicaragua with husband Dave and their three children, but work is the first thing on the agenda, during the first of two weeks in the Central American country. The West Carleton resident, whose dental practice is in Renfrew, is volunteering her time for a week at dental clinics sponsored by the Canadian-based Change for Children Association in partnership with another Canadian organization, Kindness in Action. Also volunteering their time in the Central American country are two of Dr. Kingʼs hygienists, Lorraine Winters and Megan Neill, as well as Kingʼs two older children, Cassie, 14, and Spencer, 11. “Iʼm going for the experience, and to help out the kids and the adults who need assistance,” said Winters, “Iʼm just looking for a different experience,” said Neill, who a few years ago attended a similar clinic in Jamaica. “I loved it the first time. Iʼm also looking forward to different travelling and working experiences this time.” Itʼs not the first time Dr. King has taken part in dental clinics for citizens in need. She has also volunteered her skills at similar clinics in Jamaica, Guatemala and Peru. While in Peru in 2010, Dr. King says she found the people accommodating and grateful. “We did almost the same amount of fillings as extractions,” she says. Her three children, including son Alex, now nine years old, also attended a Peruvian

elementary school to interact with the local children and to hand out school supplies. Son Spencer was so touched by the experience that he recently did a presentation at his Stonecrest Elementary School, near Kinburn, about his experience in Peru and his impending trip to Nicaragua. Fellow students were so impressed they voted to direct about $3,000 of fundraising toward the dental-clinic project. One of the poorest countries in Central America, Nicaragua clearly needs the kind of help these clinics provide. The clinics also serve as an education for those more fortunate. “Itʼs hugely important to see that not everyone has what we have here in Canada,” says Dr. King. “I think we have to give back, if we can, and help those who need help, because weʼre able to. Itʼs just an important part of my kidsʼ life. And if I can use my skills to help someone who wouldnʼt normally have access to dental care, then why not.” Itʼs not even just the dental care that is appreciated by younger and older citizens in Central and South America. While in Peru, Dr. King recalls how one of the school teachers started crying when given a supply of class pencils, because theyʼd never had pencils before. The King family will spend two weeks next month in Nicaragua after flying into the capital of Managua. As part of a 30-member clinic brigade, they will conduct clinics in the regions of Leon and Chinandega in different villages, including Posoltega. Posoltega was relocated after 6,000 residents died in a mudslide triggered by

Fatima CWL installs officers

Hurricane Mitch in 1998. It will also be very warm during the Nicaraguan clinics, with temperatures reaching into the mid-30s Celsius. “Change for Children has been working with Kindness in Action for nearly 15 years, sending dental brigades to various regions of Nicaragua as well as to Peru and Uganda,” says Lorraine Swift, the Edmonton-based program manager for Change for Childrenʼs international projects. Change for Children has previously sent six dental brigades into the northern jungles of and several to Managua and Estelí, but this will be the first time in Chinandega and Leon. This is also the same region where Change for Children operates an awardwinning water well drilling project. If all goes well, said Swift, the dental team will witness a water well being drilled in this drought-stricken, extremely poor region, where most people work on peanut and sugar cane plantations. “Their biggest challenge is access to water and the fact that it is dwindling due to climate change,” said Swift. Dental care is also a challenge, in that many poor Nicaraguans live in rural areas where dental care is basically considered a luxury. The King contingent will take relatively few clothes with them, since they plan to use most of their permitted baggage for dental supplies. Before their March 8 departure for Nicaragua, Dr. King and her contingent is welcoming local donations of school supplies and baseball (not softball) equipment. Inquiries can be directed to Dr. Kingʼs office at 432-4141.

You will need extra distance to brake safely. • Keep looking as far ahead as possible to see any hazards that may be on the road. • Reduce the distractions in your vehicle. Your full attention is required at all times. • Keep your windows and mirrors clean. Use the defroster and windshield wipers to maximize your vision. • Stay off the road when visibility and weather conditions are poor.



• Slow down gradually and drive according to weather and road conditions. • Make sure the full lighting system of your vehicle is

• Watch your speed. You may be going faster than you think. If you are, reduce your speed gradually. • Leave a safe braking distance between you and the ve-

hicle in front of you. • Remain calm and patient. • If you become stuck or stranded in severe weather, stay with your vehicle for warmth and safety until help arrives. • Slightly open a window for ventilation. • Run your engine sparingly. • Use your emergency flashers. • Be prepared and carry a winter survival kit in your vehicle that includes items such as a flashlight, warm blankets, extra clothing, winter boots, and non-perishable energy foods. A candle and matches can generate heat and keep you warm while waiting for help if you do become stranded. Before you drive and during your trip, check weather forecasts and road reports regularly. If there is a weather warning or reports of poor visibility and driving conditions, delay your trip until conditions improve or postpone it if you need to. The OPP throughout Renfrew County reminds you to always drive according to weather and road conditions. Please drive with extra care this winter.


Remember to leave a safe braking distance between you and the vehicle in front.

Flock of Lapland longspurs seen in Admaston-Bromley Township


Common redpoll, the most popular bird this winter.

Bob OĘźDonnell sent us this email after a late winter outing. On the Fulton Road I came across a small flock of Lapland longspurs. Surprisingly there were no snow buntings with them. I had always seen them together before. Also in the same area I saw eight horned larks, 35 crows and a few blue jays. On the Stone Road I came across a large flock of wild turkeys making their way to feed on a very large, open pile of silage. Above them sitting in a tree was a mature bald eagle watching the turkeys intently. I watched for 25 minutes until the eagle flew down to feed on some road kill. Altogether it was a good outing. Bob Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Donnell Lapland longspurs nest in the far north but in winter they are widespread across the country. It appears dark among ďŹ&#x201A;ocks of snow buntings. In winter both male and female look alike, dark tail, distinctive light and dark facial pattern, lacks wing bars, breast is streaked and mottled with dark brown feathers. PINE GROSBEAKS AND REDPOLLS


Wallace Eady noticed two immature wild turkeys having an altercation on his property near Cobden. They were getting serious when a large male in full display came along to watch. The two young birds continued to tangle but when one appeared to be winning the adult male joined in the fray and attacked the loser as well, driving it away. It was unusual because the adult male would not want to have a threat to his territory and would drive the stronger immature bird away. However, only turkeys know why. CARDINALS

Joyce Range at Haley Station had a pair of cardinals at her feeder for the ďŹ rst time this week. The cardinals were a welcome addition to her regulars. A great horned owl was not as welcome but Joyce said that it did not bother her feeder birds. HORNED LARKS

Going batty at Arnprior museum A new exhibit at the Arnprior and District Museum sheds light on the mysterious life of bats. The exhibit â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Listen to the Night: Bats of Ontario â&#x20AC;&#x201C; will be on display until March 31. It is on loan from the Royal

Ontario Museum ((ROM). Naturalist and Carleton University professor Michael Runtz was guest speaker at a Feb. 1 gathering to ofďŹ cially open the exhibit. About 50 people attended. The museum hours are

Monday to Friday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The museum is also open four Saturdays: Feb. 16 and 23 and March 9 and 30. General admission is $3.50, students and seniors $2, and $9 per family.

Marlene Hanneman has a ďŹ&#x201A;ock of nine pine grosbeaks, four males and ďŹ ve females at her feeders. They are continually being startled by the actions of a large ďŹ&#x201A;ock of common redpolls that take ďŹ&#x201A;ight at the least movement or sound. Marlene says two or three redpolls will remain to feed when the others ďŹ&#x201A;y to cover. The rest of the ďŹ&#x201A;ock return one at a time at ďŹ rst and then ďŹ ve or six at a time until they have all returned to feed. They stay put for only a few seconds until something disturbs them and they all ďŹ&#x201A;y to cover. This goes on during the entire time they are feeding.

Richard Brennan has a goldďŹ nch coming to his feeder that has an unusually yellow head. Variation in plumage colour is caused either by excessive amounts of pigments or the absence of certain pigments; Dark feathers are the result of excessive melanin pigment, carotenoid pigments result in excessive yellow or red colour in the plumage. These conditions are the result of dietary deďŹ ciencies. They appear after large amounts of plant material have been eaten, like seeds (millet, sunďŹ&#x201A;ower, rape, canola.)

Cathy and Remick Campbell saw a ďŹ&#x201A;ock of 10 horned larks that were feeding on the shoulder of the Stone Road. The Campbells said the larks are very recognizable because of their, distinct facial pattern and their ďŹ&#x201A;ap and glide (with closed wings) ďŹ&#x201A;ight. When feeding the adults walk and the immatures hop as they move from weed stalk to weed stalk.

They were the ďŹ rst crossbills he had seen on his property near Burnstown. Bill said it was the large white wing bars that caught his attention. The crossbillĘźs ďŹ&#x201A;ight is rapid and powerful. They use their bill to grab branches and needles as they climb among the cones. Their crossed bill gives them an advantage when opening and extracting the seeds from their main food source.

W.I. worthy of note Members of Parliament rise in the House of Commons often to salute community groups and organizations. Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant stood recently to note the 100th anniversary of a group that has withstood the test of time. The Renfrew South District WomenĘźs Institute (RSDWI) has branches in Burnstown, Balsam Hill-Horton, Castleford, Calabogie, Glasgow, Lochwinnoch and White Lake. This is WomenĘźs Institute Week, a time to celebrate how womenĘźs institutes have preserved and promoted strong communities through such important initiatives as the Tweedsmuir Community History collections, named in honour of Lady Tweedsmuir, wife of the 15th Governor-General of Canada, who visited Renfrew back in 1938. In the House of Commons, MP Gallant recognized the groupĘźs local executive â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a list worthy of repeat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am pleased to recognize this yearĘźs anniversary executive, president Margie MacKenzie, past president Irene Robillard, ďŹ rst

vice-president Joanne McDonald, second vicepresident Jo-Anne Camelon, secretary Ellen Martin, treasurer Jane Flain, Tweedsmuir curator Sara MacKenzie, public relations ofďŹ cer Lynn Clelland, assistant curator Marlene Schaly, advocacy co-ordinator Lillian Collins, and membership co-ordinator Anita Schubrink,â&#x20AC;? said Gallant. The 1986 book, Horton â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Story of a Township, by Doris and Campbell Humphries gives a wonderful snapshot of the important role W.I. branches have played over the past century. Bringing school nurse visits and immunization to rural schools. Funding hospital equipment. Refugee work. Visiting elderly and shutins at Christmas. Promoting skills like sewing, knitting and cooking. Catering community dinners. Supporting Canadian troops. Financing 4-H initiatives. The list goes on and on. W.I.s have always epitomized what caring about oneself and others is truly about. The groupĘźs motto is For Home and Country. This tip of the hat is for them.


Governor General Lord Tweedsmuirâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s visit to Renfrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Low Square 75 years ago, in 1938. The Tweedsmuir Community History Collections are a local treasure.


The Pinnacle perspective LUCY HASS View from the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;frew

There are plenty of grumpy media folk out there these days. Seems everywhere you turn someone is griping about something, attacking others or expounding reams of self-proclaimed wisdom. Everything, it seems, is someone elseĘźs fault. If weĘźre poor, we blame the rich. If weĘźre unhealthy, we grumble about the health-care system. If weĘźre unhappy with our community, the lineup is long to take shots at someone. Sometimes the beefs are legitimate and demand action. Sometimes less so. Just before Christmas I chatted with a Renfrew lady who has dedicated much time and effort to horticultural improvements in the past. She ďŹ gured that if everyone took the initiative in 2013 to beautify their own little corner of the town, what a wonderful thing that would be. It might even encourage others to follow suit and the momentum drive municipal powers to focus more attention on making our community an attractive one. One solution she offered â&#x20AC;&#x201C; lilies. They are easy to maintain, colourful and keep their crisp, clean look long after the blooms have fallen. She reminded me of how sometimes the simplest effort can shift our perspective from dreary to cheery. Living in Renfrew most of my adult life, I know ďŹ rst-hand the nightmare that is Confusion Corner, where Raglan, Hall and VeteransĘź Memorial Boulevard meet. IĘźve been victim of a hit-and-run automobile accident at that intersection, and my car was struck another time at the corner of Raglan and Opeongo.

I have, as a result, been conditioned to hate that dreadful patch of pavement from Confusion Corner to Opeongo Road. But no more, because one day I looked. Really looked. ItĘźs easy to get lost in the all niggly annoyances of daily life, but what about the beauty around us? If you stand at the corner of Opeongo and Raglan and look north, the view is actually a wonderful one. So in 2013, itĘźs goodbye to Confusion Corner crankiness and hello to a new ĘťPinnacle Perspective.Ęź Try it. The next time youĘźre walking downtown, stop and take a serious second look. Look north at the eternal Pinnacle, then south at our historic Raglan streetscape. Stop and read the dates on the buildings. Life is not just about us and now. ItĘźs also about yesterday, and tomorrow. American author Terry Teachout once wrote, â&#x20AC;&#x153;In a small town, past and present stand side by side, almost too close to tell the difference.â&#x20AC;? There is something empowering in the knowledge that generations have walked this very same ground, hurrying along woodenplank sidewalks to buy groceries at one of the local stores, or steering a horse and wagon through a muddy main street ripped open with wagon-wheel ruts. That is our past. That is who we are. There have been countless improvements over the years, from street lighting to paved roads. We should really marvel at how far weĘźve come as a community. But we must also look forward, with the conďŹ dence and determination of our pioneering forefathers. So in 2013, that year tagged with the supposedly-unlucky 13 at its end, letĘźs look for ways to be better, not bitter. And maybe even plant a single lily, and pause a moment to smile when it blooms. Positive attitude and civic pride are keys to community development. This Heritage Week, our ancestors deserve our renewed commitment to keeping the town vibrant.

I didnʼt think that someone that is paid to do their job is deserving. I thought it was going to people that volunteered and

made the difference to society. Mr. Mayor, you are not deserving. By your acceptance you have cheapened the value of the medal. I voted to get you elected into a paid position, which you donʼt do very well. I have called your office and left messages that I would like to talk to you,

Diamond jubilee recognition deserved To the editor: Congratulations to Renfrew Mayor Bill Ringrose and Reeve Audrey Green, for their gracious acceptance of this wonderful gift, of the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubille medal. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the Federation of Canadian Municipalities knew what they were doing when they decided to acknowledge the importance of the role of the mayor, in todayʼs society. I thank them for thinking of us and honouring us this way. In Renfrew, we all like to share a piece of the action, so please donʼt put the medal on a shelf, Mayor Ringrose. Let us see it. When the Caring Canadian

Award was bestowed upon me, I was then, and am still, truly humbled by such an honour. The Queen chose well when she singled out the mayors of Canada and yes, Mayor Ringrose, you were just in the right place at the right time. I would have expected your humble response to such an honour. Well done! My hope would be that you would wear the medal to the Bruce Firestone event at MaTe-Way. You might also wear it on Raglan Street for at least one day. Perhaps you could stop in to the shops and show it off. I am sure the Rotary Club is going to want a gander at it as well.

I love you Reeve Green for valuing the chair and for speaking of the countless hours that our politicians give without asking for thanks or remuneration. I am sure that the seat does not amount to 50 cents an hour the way you have done the job for years. This medal looks good on all of you. Thank you to The Renfrew Mercury for bringing this happy news to us. Best wishes, Kate Windle Renfrew

CBS says thanks, welcomes donors Feb. 28 To the editor: Canadian Blood Services would like to acknowledge inconveniences felt by donors during the previous blood donor clinic in Renfrew this past January. We were required to change the clinic location at the last minute and donors were supposed to be informed of the change. While some donors were reached, many donors were not and as a result were unaware of the change of venue. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused. We have looked into the problem and have taken steps to ensure this does not happen again. We are asking our donors for their understanding and for their continued commitment to blood donation.

All eligible blood donors in Renfrew are encouraged to make an appointment to give blood on Thursday, Feb. 28 at St. Josephʼs Catholic High School, 835 First St. from 2 to 5 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m. Appointments can be booked online at www. or by calling 1-888-2-DONATE. This has been a very difficult winter for blood collections across our region. Several clinics have felt the negative impact of winter storms and we are asking Renfrew residents to help us ensure patients have the products they need by donating blood on Feb. 28.

Allegedly two vehicles were totalled and written off, adding to the tilt two expensive insurance claims, towing expenses and endless paperwork. The culprit “has been charged with making an unsafe turn. The fine, if he is found guilty, will be $110 and two demerit points.” He may be offered a deal, indeed.

Emerson wasnʼt happy. He was grumpy since he got home from school on Friday and Mother announced that Saturday he would be donning an apron! Mother was high on equality of the sexes back in the days when it had yet to become a popular topic. And so, once a month, the brothers were in the house to do chores, and my sister Audrey and I were sent to the barns. I loved the day we were with Father in the cow byre and the stable, even though he himself did all the heaviest chores. Mother thought any child, male or female, wouldnʼt amount to a hill of beans unless they knew how to scrub floors, churn butter, put a meal on the table, and if need be, bake a batch of bread. She drew the line, however, at teaching the brothers to sew ever since Emerson was allowed to use the old Singer Sewing machine once, just to see how it worked, he said. He sewed the legs closed on Everettʼs long underwear, and Mother made him sit that night at the kitchen table and pick out every last stitch with a darning needle! And so that Saturday, bright and early, my three brothers, Everett, Emerson and Earl, were given their lists. Mother was also high on lists too. On went the long white pinnies. Emerson hated them almost as much as he hated house chores. “If the guys at the Northcote School ever

Northcote School wearing a pinnie came to a crashing end not more than a week after I threatened to expose him. It all happened when Three Mile Herman came to school mad as a Hatter. Now, Three Mile Hermanʼs mother and my mother belonged to the Womenʼs Institute together, and it seems they got to talking about their families. Three Mile Herman said his mother was told by our mother her idea of switching chores between the sons and daughters, and it was good training and made perfect sense if they were ever going to amount to a hill of beans. And thatʼs all she needed to hear. Mother had earned great respect in the Northcote area since everyone knew she had come from New York City, and therefore must be up on all the latest trends and ideas. And so before he could say “jackrabbit” Three Mile Herman was in an apron doing house chores! Unlike Emerson, he didnʼt care who knew it. That didnʼt mean he liked either the pinnie or doing house chores, but he like to talk, and he liked an audience, and soon everyone at the Northcote School knew about our brothers and the boys in Three Mile Hermanʼs family doing house chores! Well, that took the sting off for Emerson. There was someone else at the Northcote School in the same kettle of fish as he was. I had to tear up the picture I drew and kept in my primer book reader, and Emerson was back to making my life miserable.

saw me in one of these, Iʼd be a goner,” he growled. He glared at me, “and donʼt you ever, and I mean ever, tell a soul,” he snarled, “or you will pay dearly.” Suddenly, as if someone had lit a candle over my head, I realized this little bit of knowledge might come in handy down the road. I just might be able to use it to my advantage. And so began a tug-o-war so to speak. When Emerson aggravated me, which was too often to suit me, I would threaten to tell everyone at the Northcote School what Emerson looked like in a long white pinnie! I even went as far as to draw a stick lad, wearing an apron and printed Emersonʼs name under it. I kept it in my primer book reader at the ready, and made sure Emerson knew it was there. Emersonʼs teasing came to an abrupt halt, I can tell you! I finally had him where I wanted him. I took my sister Audrey into my confidence, and even showed her the drawing of the stick lad. At that stage in her life, Audrey was high on religion. She thought what I was doing could be classified as a sin. I mulled over this bit of information, and I certainly didnʼt want to bring on the wrath of God, but for the life of me I couldnʼt understand for a minute why God would care about a scrap of paper with a stick drawing on it which was supposed to be my brother Emerson!

Our efforts to improve upon and add to patient safety information are ongoing. “In 2008, we hosted a focus group to gather ideas from patients and families about their role in patient safety, and we are planning a second one to get feedback and fresh input,” says Ferguson. Working together and becoming familiar with our safety message is one way of ensuring faster, more efficient care. The message includes knowing your current list of medications and allergies. “Have this information written out and keep it with you at all times,” notes Ferguson. The importance of proper hand hygiene to help prevent the spread of germs to you and to those around you is also stressed. Kelly Hebert, RVH’s health, safety and

Hand washing or using alcohol-based hand sanitizers—especially when cold and flu season is upon us—is extremely important to reduce the risk of spreading infections. Hand sanitizer stations are conveniently located throughout the hospital. Hebert recommends that whether you are visiting the hospital or not, it is good practice to wash your hands often with soap

and rub for 15 seconds, covering all of the surfaces. Rinse off the soap and gently blot with a towel. Other safety measures at RVH include a falls prevention program that assesses each patient upon admittance. Patients who don’t feel stable enough to move on their own should wait for one of our staff members to assist. For safety due to allergies and for the comfort of patients, visitors and staff, RVH promotes both a scent-free and smoke-free environment. Complete guidelines for patients are provided in the Patient Safety section of the RVH website. Above all, if you have a question about your care, please do not hesitate to ask any member of our health care team.

The annual Renfrew Amateur Wrestling Club’s Renfrew Rumble wrestling tournament began Saturday with a special presentation and photo op in response to the recent announcement that wrestling is in jeopardy of being excluded from the 2020 Olympics. Wrestlers, coaches, draw masters, referees and other supporters gather on the mat to show the sport is alive and well in Renfrew County.

Olympic decision catches wrestling community by surprise Steve Newman

Last weekʼs announcement that wrestling not be a core sport at the 2020 Summer Olympic Games has shocked the wrestling world. Include Renfrew in that category. Not only a wrestling haven for youngsters, the town has hosted national-level events, including a national championship and the visit of such international stars as Daniel Igali, Tonya Verbeek and Martine Dugrenier. Dugrenier, a double Olympian and two-time world champion with the Montreal Wrestling Club, has been regular visitor to Renfrew to give clinics. The 33-year-old is recovering from shoulder surgery that could steer her into retirement. Meanwhile, however, Dugrenier was stunned to hear her sport may be turfed from the Summer Olympic program by 2020. “Everyone is in shock,” she told the Renfrew Mercury EMC. “No one saw it coming,

including the Canadian and international federations.” Dugrenier says the fightʼs not over, but that thereʼs lots of work to be done to convince the IOC executive board otherwise. Wrestling is already part of the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, but thatʼs little consolation if lobbying efforts are unsuccessful. Renfrew resident Grant Lavallee, who has a long history as a wrestling competitor or coach, says the decision appears to be more about dollars and cents, and how much some sports can financially benefit the Olympic movement. Also, he points out that wrestling and running are two of the oldest Olympic events, from their Olympic debut in 1896, and that running isnʼt making a exit any time soon. Other Renfrew coaches feel similarly. “Weʼre going to make as much noise as possible,” said Jamie McDonald, head coach of the Renfrew Amateur Wrestling Clubʼs Mat Rat team in the local elementary schools.

“Coaches, kids and parents are going to show how much interest there is for the sport, and Iʼm sure weʼre not the only area.” “History does change, but itʼs a shame thatʼs itʼs going more with the spectator-leading sports instead of with the effort and energy thatʼs displayed in our sport,” said Lavallee. Lavallee is convinced wrestling is one of the most tried and true Olympic sports, with the highest requirements for physical commitment and energy. He puts the sport in a category with rowing, which remains an Olympic sport. In a statement released last week, Canadian Olympic Committee president Marcel Aubut IOC is proposing that wrestling be shortlisted as a sport left to vie for the 2020 Olympicsʼ one additional sport. The other sports in that position are baseball/softball, karate, roller sports, sport climbing, squash, wakeboarding and wushu. All will have the opportunity to state their case to the IOC executive board in May in St. Petersburg, Russia.

In a new release, Aubut said, “It is disappointing that wrestling may not be a member of the Olympic family in 2020 …Our country has a long tradition of excellence in this sport exemplifying a proud tradition of being best in class.” He cited the examples of Daniel Igali, who won Canadaʼs first-ever Olympic wrestling gold in 2000, and the 2012 Olympic medals by Tonya Verbeek and Carol Huynh. The IOC stresses the executive boardʼs decision is a recommendation, which goes to the September 2013 IOC session in Buenos Aires. The IOC recommends the following 25 sports be the core sports of the 2020 Olympics: archery, athletics, rowing, badminton, basketball, boxing, canoeing, cycling, equestrian, fencing, football (soccer), gymnastics, weightlifting, team handball, field hockey, judo, swimming, modern pentathlon, taekwondo, tennis, table tennis, triathlon, sailing, shooting and volleyball.

Renfrew wrestlers rumble to 19 gold Renfrew Amateur Wrestling Club

The Renfrew Wrestling club hosted the 23rd annual Renfrew Rumble last Saturday at the AFAC Wing. Though the number of athletes in attendance was lower this year due to tournament overlaps, the quality of wrestling was still high. The day started out with a large group photo of all the wrestlers, coaches, draw masters, and parents in attendance to be sent to the International

Olympic Committee and Canadian Amateur Wrestling Association to show that a small town can have so many in attendance to support the sport of wrestling. Bill Quigg once again was emcee for the day and did an excellent job in getting the athletes excited for the day with his “Letʼs get ready to rumble!” The event ran smoothly and a good time was had by all. Thanks to all the volunteers, coaches and athletes and parents who took time out of

National Hockey League 15-year veteran Brad Marsh left a positive, lasting impression in Renfrew, and across the Ottawa Valley and national hockey community. Twenty years ago, Brad Marsh Day was celebrated in Renfrew by the Brad Marsh Fan Club. The occasion received noticeable fanfare when Ron MacLean of CBC interviewed Brad Marsh fan club president Barry Breen of Renfrew. Marsh, who wore sweater No. 14, was generally considered a pretty average hockey player. But the defenceman stood out, not just as one of the few NHL players who played without a helmet, but because he was well-liked, hardworking and community-minded. He played his 15th and final season with the Senators in 1992-93. Memories of those days remain with the help of memorabilia, including the Brad Marsh Day banner that was hung outdoors Feb. 14 at the National Hockey Association-National Hockey League Birthplace Museum. That day represented the 20th anniversary of Brad Marsh Day, which was celebrated on Feb. 14, 1993. As a way of sharing those memories, the NHA-NHL Museum has a section of the muse-

um devoted to newspaper clippings and other Brad Marsh memorabilia. Hanging the Brad Marsh Day banner was just another way of sharing Renfrewʼs rich hockey history with community members and visitors, said Ray Dunbar, the volunteer executive director of the NHA-NHL Birthplace Museum. The 20th anniversary also came on the eve of last weekendʼs Ottawa Senators Alumni game at the Eganville arena. Renfrewʼs Brad Marsh Fan Club survived into the late 1990s, by which time it raised an estimated $70,000 for various community projects. This included $20,000 for childrenʼs breathing apparatus at the Renfrew Victoria Hospital, where the second floor still includes the Brad Marsh Room. “We had a pile of fun,” recalls former Brad Marsh Fan Club president Breen, who remembers the day 38 German tourists got off the bus in downtown Renfrew, where they signed up as Brad Marsh Fan Club members. The Brad Marsh Fan Club also got a big boost when Marsh appeared with his family in the 1993 Renfrew Lions Club Santa Claus Parade. Through the club, many youngsters also attended Ottawa Senators games who would never have otherwise had that opportunity. The club, which grew to about 2,600 members, disbanded in the late 1990s.

Pink and red where the colours of choice as Shelley Jamieson and her helpers welcomed curlers to the annual sweetheart spiel. Some of the outfits were a site to behold as I heard at least five guys ask a good looking McGill cheerleader (aka Gord Eady) for a date while Brenda Johnston and Beth Marcella dangled their bangles and put their hearts on display in an interesting location. And after a day of curling, they all shared a wonderful potluck dinner, prizes and an awfully good time. When the dust settled the team of Ed and Laura Hanson and Warren and Jean Klages accepted the trophy for most points. Their team photo appears on the web at The seven-team Thursday afternoon mixed league declared their third draw

winners as the team of Leo McCallum, Eric Craig, Peter Price and Claudette Lockwood tied at 4-1 with the team of Andy Sklepowicz, Brian Hewitt, Sandra Fredette and Louise Jamieson. Half a game behind was the Bill Bowles team. Renfrew sent three teams to Shawville for a friendly and the Leo McCallum and Rob Warren teams won comfortably while the Bill Bowlesʼ foursome won on last shots. However, the highlight had to be Billʼs incredible quadruple raise take-out for two that changed the momentum in that game.

St. Joseph’s Jaguar teams return to sports arena Peter Clark

While sports in a number of Upper Ottawa Valley high schools has been put on hold, extra-curricular activity for some continues to march on. The St. Josephʼs Jaguars are among those playing in a condensed Upper Ottawa Valley High School Association 2013 season in both boys basketball and girls volleyball. After dropping the league opener 66-40 to the Arnprior Redmen Feb. 7, the Jaguar senior boys rebounded with a 67-31 hoops win over the Bishop Smith Crusaders five days later. Braeden Troutman led the way for St. Josephʼs. In junior play, Bishop Smith downed the Jaguars 36-22. Nathan Dyck topped St. Josephʼs pointgetters with eight points. Arnprior scored a 40-27 win over the Juniors Jaguars. Steve Jones is handling the coaching reins for the junior boys squad. Chris Naismith is behind the bench for the senior boys. The Junior Jaguars girls

volleyball team is off to a 5-and-1 start, and share top spot with the Bishop Smith Crusaders. The Jaguars posted wins over the Arnprior Redmen, Jeanne Lajoie Chevaliers and Bishop Smith, all by 2-0 counts in their best-of-three matches in Pembroke last Thursday. In previous action, the Junior Jaguars opened the season with 2-1 wins over both Arnprior and Jeanne Lajoie Feb. 7. The Junior Jaguars dropped their third match of the day 2-0 to Bishop Smith. The junior girls are coached by Meghan Cahill and Renee Turcotte. Brennan Trainorʼs Senior Jaguars are 3-and-0. St. Josephʼs swept their way through LʼEquinoxe Patriotes 3-0, Jeanne Lajoie 3-1 and Bishop Smith 3-2 on Feb. 12. Playoffs in both the senior and junior divisions of girls volleyball and boys basketball run with semifinal matches on Monday, March 4. All championship games will be played in the home of each respectively leagueʼs highest survivor Thursday, March 7.

Todd Nicholson and Harvey Lord, developmental coaches and former members of Canadaʼs national sledge hockey team, were in Calabogie to introduce this sport to injured solders and veterans as part of the Canadian Association for Disabled Skiing – National Capital Divisionʼs Winter Sports Clinic. Seven Canadian and three American soldiers participated in the event as well as about 20 ski instructors. “Many goals were scored, a number of sledge collisions occurred, prosthesis came off, and some egos were bruised, but all had a great time,” said Nicholson, Canadaʼs former sledge hockey captain. “In reality, we are always looking for new recruits, both those with disabilities and able bodied, and venues such as this give us the opportunity to do just that.” The Winter Sports Clinic, in its third year, is a week-long event held at Calabogie Peaks with a primary focus on skiing and snowboarding. Other activities such as evening Mountain Cat rides, adaptive swimming, and this year sledge hockey, took place. A spousal program complements the clinic and has re-

ceived positive feedback. “Although the main focus is skiing, this is not our primary objective,” explained Clay Dawdy, Adaptive Snowsports director for the Calabogie program. “Rather the focus is to regain self-confidence and selfesteem post injury and to develop peer and mentor relationships that will benefit the soldiers.” Positive feedback was received from the American contingent at the clinic. Chris Werhane, adaptive adventures co-ordinator from Colorado, attended 15 clinics this season and said “the Calabogie Peaks facility and mountain was the most adaptive user-friendly that he has attended this year.” Sarah Wade, the chief organizer for the United States participants, said she looks forward to coming back next year with a much larger USA military and instructor contingent. Hockey sledges were donated by Renfrew Community Living, and Greater Madawaska Twp. literally rolled out the “red carpet” to allow for wheelchair access onto the reserved ice at the Calabogie rink, Dawdy said.


Successful performances at this past weekendʼs Winterman events in Ottawa rewarded area runners with a fantastic start to the running season. Renfrew runners competed in brisk windy conditions to top their age groups. Thomas McGregor ran consistent splits to win his 30-34 age division in the half marathon distance with a time of one hour, 33 minutes and 17 seconds.

Kevin Ready of Burnstown was fifth in the 40-44 division with a time of 1:40:27. There were 146 runners in the half-marathon event. Jason Wojcik of Haley Station finished second in the 40-44 age group in the 10-kilometre event. Five-kilometre distance participant Pat McGregor placed second in her division, while Bonnie McIntyre finished in third in the 40-44 age group and eight overall in the womenʼs field of 135.

The action reaches a feverish pitch around the goal..

Calabogie ski racers prepared Cartman earns shot at Games Anne Lefebvre

Calabogie Ski Racing Club

The final regular-season races are drawing to a close for Calabogieʼs alpine athletes, leaving them well prepared for the championship races in March. U12 and U14 have completed their race schedule, while U10 and U16 have just one more race to go. Then itʼs full steam ahead into the championships and U14 provincials. The U16 gang raced in a slalom at Mont Cascades Feb. 9 and followed it up with a GS at Calabogie Peaks Feb. 10. Aylen Ferguson (Carp) sped to 21st in the slalom and doubled the feat in GS with another 21st. Chris Pepin (Kinburn) did not finish his slalom race, but hung on in the GS to carve his way into 25th position. The U10s travelled to Mont Cascades Feb. 16 for a panel slalom. This race requires the racers to execute short radius slalom turns, while going around the bigger, panelled gates. CSRCs newest racers continue to improve each day. Louise Stonham (Arnprior) ripped down the course in 11th place, while Carly Alexander (Carp) displayed her carving skills for 24th. Nicole Duff (Pembroke) was 26th. The boys tore up the course as well. Jeremy Van Grunsven (Odessa) laid down not two, but three solid runs after a timing error on his first run,

and was just off the podium, in sixth place. Alex Wroe bettered his first run with a smoking second run to put him into eighth. Wyatt Campbell-Brunke rounded out the top 10 with a 10th place finish. Evan Sharma (Kingston) sped to 14th. Carson Lefebvre (Calabogie) was sitting in seventh following his first run, but DQed in the second run. The U12s had a busy weekend with a panel slalom at Vorlage, Que. Feb. 16 and a Kombi race at Edelweiss, Que. Feb. 17. The boys skied with their usual aggressiveness and posted some nice times. Sam Alexander (Carp) raced into third place, picking up a bronze medal, while Tyler Lefebvre (Calabogie) was in sixth. Connor Allen (Manotick) laid down two good runs to land in 17th, and Owen Barr (Carp) continued to improve, attaining 25th. Zach Wroe (Burnstown) displayed determination. After missing a gate, he skied back up and around it and then laid down a strong second run for 40th. The girls were solid on the hill. Alyssa Steggall (Stittsville) had an eighth-place result, while Annabel Wight (Kanata) and Tess Schreider (Kingston) continue to improve, placing 37th and 43rd respectively. The Kombi race was a fun experience for all. A Kombi is

a technical race requiring racers to react quickly, as it combines slalom and GS into one run, complete with delays, flushes and hairpins. Jack Alexander snagged a silver medal, and Tyler Lefebvre was less than a second off the podium in seventh. Connor Allen, who has been coming on strong of late, landed in the top 10, 10th, for the first time. Zach Wroe was solid, racing to 20th. Owen Barr had to race the course three times after a starter error, but skied strongly for 27th. Ryan Geddie bettered Saturdayʼs results to come in 45th. Sam Alexander and Sean Swayze were podium-bound after one run, but both blew out of the second run. It was another Kombi race for the U14 group Feb. 17 at Mont Cascades. Lauren Ferguson of Carp was the top Calabogie girl, finishing 28th overall.Lauren Campbell-Brunke (Renfrew) was set to land in the top 10 again this season, but a broken gate got in her way and she was DSQed. She rallied on her second run, picking up a sixth-place time. Sam Duff (Pembroke) was another top10 racer, finishing 10th. Jack Hamilton (Burnstown) had a strong finish to his regular season with a 30th. Next up, U10 and U16 close off the regular season, followed by championship racing for all club athletes.

Harry Smith Renfrew Amateur Wrestling Club

Renfrew senior wrestlers headed to St. Catharines Feb. 1 to compete in cadet and juvenile wrestling championships. The attendance was down this year, particularly in the cadet level. Never-the-less, the competition was outstanding. Head coach Harry Smith, coach Shohannah Smith, manager Nanci Lines and many supporting parents were present to assist and cheer on the athletes. Lily Lafont won silver while Jake Cartman, Athena

Mitchell, Ida Yates-Lavery and Devin Tabbert were bronze medallists. Chelsea Bernard and Colton Warren finished fifth. Narrowly missing a spot on the podium were Bryson Lines and Sam Wolfe. Jenna Hedden and Angel Smith were pulled from the tournament due to injury. All the wrestlers stepped up their game and represented Renfrew very well. Jake Cartman, as a juvenile, placed third in the province and qualified to sit and compete on the ladder for the Ontario Summer Games trials to be held May 5 weekend. He will face the eventual

winner of all contenders who compete in a single elimination pool. If he wins this match Jake will challenge the provincial silver medallist who he did not get to face during the provincial championships. If Jake wins against the provincial silver medallist, he can challenge the gold medallist. If victorious Jake will represent Ontario at the Canada Summer Games and if he remains second he will attend the Games as an alternate. High school teams from RCI, St. Josephʼs, Opeongo and Jeanne Lajoie have been preparing for todayʼs EOSSAA tourney in Kingston.

Parents keep Olympic wrestling healthy Grant Lavallee

There are more wrestlers per capita in Renfrew than in any other community in Canada, as the local club continues to work to keep the sport healthy. With Renfrew hosting three tournaments each year, they not only want to develop wrestlers, but also those who can organize and run smooth tournaments. With the Renfrew Rumble hosted at the AFAC Wing last Saturday, this was a good opportunity to develop more adults who can match up

wrestler against wrestler and team against team. This is a very complicated process, with 150 or more athletes having to be paired correctly in their age, gender and weight divisions. Feb. 15 and 16, Trish Smith, our club head pairing master, held a clinic to recruit new pairing masters for the Renfrew wrestling team. Those attending and helping to run this yearʼs Renfrew Rumble were Tonya Johnston, Tammy Wall, Virginia MacLaren, Nancy Lines, Tracey Herbert, Darwin Price, Vassil Mitchell and Sue Burnett.

Trish was delighted to see so many new people interested in how a tournament is organized and noted the dedication and enthusiasm of the new pairing masters. March 4 at the Grant Lavallee Qualifier, she looks forward to overseeing the newly-trained officials running the tournament. The qualifier will help determine selections for Team Renfrew and the provincials in Peterborough and Eastern Canadians in Milton. Wrestling is big in our town and having experienced officials helps our growing sport. R0011927923

Rumble bronze medallists

Wolves down Packers 5-3 in playoff opener

The rivalry continues in this yearʼs Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League playoffs. For the fourth consecutive year, either the Renfrew Timberwolves or Arnprior Packers will see their Valley Division season end at the hands of the other. The Wolves won a semifinal series three years ago and Valley Division final in 2011. Arnprior won their semifinal clash last season. This yearʼs series got underway with a 5-3 Renfrew victory Tuesday and game two Wednesday. The best-of-seven resumes Friday at 8 p.m. at the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre. Game four is Saturday at the Nick Smith Centre in Arnprior. Game time is 7 p.m. Game five is Tuesday, Feb. 26 in Renfrew; game six Wednesday, Feb. 27 in Arnprior, and Game seven, if necessary, Friday, March 1 in Renfrew. All games in Renfrew are at 8 p.m. WOLVES 2, PONTIACS 1 (OT)

Many games down the stretch have had a playoff-like fever to them. Teams have given no quarter regardless of their post-season status, and most games have been highlighted by quality

goalkeeping. It was more of the same Friday night as Matt Gagne and Shawville counterpart Danick Boisvert yielded little in their goalcreases. Not until Patrick McGrath scored off a Matt McIntyre set-up 3:23 into suddendeath overtime was a winner declared. The goal came on Renfrewʼs 36th shot of the game. The Pontiacs tested Gagne 26 times. Both goaltenders were near flawless. All they allowed was the tradeoff of powerplay markers from Kurtis Leclaire and Shawville Brett Nugent 2:39 apart early in the second period. A goalless third period had fans on both sides of the border using only the edges of their seats. The Wolves outshot Shawville 15-11 and many scoring bids were of a quality value at both ends of the rink. The win was Renfrewʼs seventh straight.

Chris Minns, with two, and affiliate Andrew Ryan put Renfrew on the board. The Wolves Sean Kyte knocked Arnpriorʼs Corey Chaplin to the canvass with a quick series of punches halfway through the second period. Three minutes later with 6:17 remaining, the Packers Taylor Fenton connected on the Wolves Brennan Nephin, but with Nephin down and obviously in trouble, the Packer forward continued to punch away. On the same stoppage, Ryan Eady and Arnpriorʼs Alex Bourassa-Barron cast their gloves aside, and also received early exits. The ambulance was called for Nephin and the rest of the game was observed under the watchful eye of the OPP. But a straight-time third period came and went without further incident.

After a tame opening period of no goals and three minor penalties, things heated up in a second period of six goals and three fights in a meaningless final game of the 2012-13 season in Arnprior. Arnprior jumped out to a 3-0 lead, and were in front 4-2 after two periods, led by a Brock Burge hat trick. Burge added a fourth goal in the final frame. Eric Malloy and Derrin Lehoux had others for Arnprior.

The Wolves played minus eight regulars in Arnprior as the game had no bearing on the standings. It was also a battle of the back-ups as Nicolas Hodgins and Arnpriorʼs Mike Cheslock got the call in goal. The incorrect goaltender was reported last week in the Wolves Feb. 10 win in Shawville. Hodgins blocked six of seven Pontiac would-be marksmen during the game-deciding shootout to backstop the 4-3 Renfrew victory.

Three down, but three Wolves rep teams remain The 2012-13 Upper Ottawa Valley Hockey League playoff trail came to an end for three Renfrew rep teams last week. The Atom Timberwolves dropped a 6-3 decision to the Petawawa Patriots in game two of their four-point quarterfinal series Saturday. Kelson Hart, Carter Sammon and Justin Schutt were Renfrew goalgetters. Goaltenders Johnathan Roach and Summer Simons both yielded three goals. An amazing last six minutes eventually led to the Bantam Wolves elimination. The Wolves trailed the Muskrat Voyageurs 1-0 for the longest time before the wild conclusion led to a 5-3 Muskrat victory. Nicholas Fleguel and John Agnew tied the game at 1-1 and 2-2. Ben Kubiseski then gave the Bantam Wolves the lead for the first time with 1:41 remaining. But lo and behold, only five seconds later, Nathan Dulong pulled Muskrat even, and Kalum Kennedy put the visitors ahead only 13 seconds after that. The Wolves Carter Blim-

kie was between the pipes for four goals. A empty-net goal sealed Renfrewʼs fate. Pembroke broke open a 2-1 game with goals seven seconds apart in a 7-1 win over the Major Midget Timberwolves. Adam Martin scored while Travis Lemay and Chloe Eady shared goaltending duties in the Renfrew teamʼs final game of 2012-13. The Peewee Wolves advance to the next round with a 5-2 win in Petawawa. Luke Moran backstopped the triumph. The Novice and Minor Midget Timberwolves are awaiting opponents as both earned a bye through the opening round of the playoffs. The Minor Midget Wolves capped off a 16-1-and-1 regular season with a 5-0 win in Pembroke Feb. 9. Billy Karras had three goals and Carson Barber three assists for Renfrew. Justin Visinski and Kevin Crozier supplied single markers. Bantam Wolves affiliate Carter Blimkie chalked up the shutout. A team photo with the firstplace hardware appears at The Minor Midget Wolves also went 1-and-2 in the ArnR0011917192

prior tournament. The Wolves lost 5-1 to Cumberland and 3-0 to Orleans. They also defeated Kemptville 3-0 behind Patrick Bruzasʼs ninth shutout. Karras, Barber, Matt Stuart and Adam Wright scored Renfrew goals. HOUSE HOCKEY

Fraserʼs wrapped up its bantam house opening-round series in two straight games with a 2-1 win in Arnprior. Cole Turcotte notched both goals. Jordan Vandersleen guarded the goalcrease. Metroʼs season ended with 4-2 and 4-1 setbacks to Deep River. Evan Zohr, Jacob Freemark and Braedon Vincent were Metro snipers. Connery Campbell was in goal. Fultonʼs claimed the local peewee match-up with a second 2-0 win over NAPA. Brett Clouthier and Nicholas Wright scored in support of Mason Lynchʼs second shutout of the series and seventh of the season. Canadian Tire captured their atom playoff 5-1 in points over Deep River after a 1-1 deadlock and 2-0 win behind Meadow Congdonʼs

ninth shutout last week. Brandon McCrea scored in both games. Haydon Moore added the single Canadian Tire marker. Farrellʼs trails Barryʼs Bay 3-1 in points as a result of a 2-2 tie and 5-3 loss. Olivia Smart had two goals while Maxx Steele, Alec McCallum and Easton McDonald collected solos. Katie Brydges backstopped the two games. PIZZERIA B CHAMPS

The novice house hockey playoffs ended for Renfrew Pizzeria with 1-0 and 4-0 loses to Deep River, but the Renfrew squad did return home Saturday with B hardware from the Cobden novice tournament. After opening with a 4-1 setback to Barryʼs Bay, Renfrew Pizzeria doubled Eganville 8-4 and topped Pembroke 3-0, buoyed by Hope Simonsʼ fourth shutout of the year. Kenny Ingram had a fourgoal game and a two-goal game en route to the B title. Stephan Brisco added a pair. Singles came from Colby Campbell, Bo Stevenson Isaac Stewart and Aaron Sarsfield. Campbell had three assists.

Town highlights water works report


Phoenix Centre executive director Greg Lubimiv, left, receives a $535.15 cheque from Renfrew County Warden Peter Emon. The money, raised by county staff during Healthy Workplace Month last October, will be used for the Phoenix Centreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Friends and Neighbours Club puppet program.

Pounds shed, money raised for Phoenix Centre puppet program Steve Newman

Some of the Phoenix CentreĘźs programs wouldnĘźt be possible without volunteers. Case in point is the Friends and Neighbours Club puppet program, which reaches children ages two to 11, without an ofďŹ cial budget, but with plenty of donated time by key volunteers. That program has continued for years while helping children to learn how to respond to a wide variety of social or life issues, including bullying, vandalism, military deployment of parents, nutrition, smoking and substance abuse. The program is generally presented in schools, thus allowing teachers to generate

class material from the puppet presentations. But now the program has some welcomed funds, says Greg Lubimiv, executive director for the countyĘźs mental health treatment centre. Thanks goes to the fundraising efforts by more than 100 county staff during last OctoberĘźs Healthy Workplace Month. Through denim days, football tosses and other fundraising activities, Renfrew County staff members shed a total of 338 pounds in body weight that month. County staff also raised $535.15 for a recipient to be determined. The recipient became the Phoenix Centre, whose executive director says the funds make a difference for

the puppet club, which has been in existence for more than 20 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;ItĘźs very much appreciated, both the acknowledgement and the money,â&#x20AC;? said Lubimiv, who noted that one in ďŹ ve children in Ontario have mental health issues. He also noted only in four children actually receive assistance, partially because of peopleĘźs reluctance to talk about mental health. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thank you for supporting and understanding that mental health truly affects all of us.â&#x20AC;?

Paramedic base station property in Deep River costs only one dollar Steve Newman

Renfrew County council has approved the purchase of a half acre of property, next to the Deep River and District Hospital, to build a new paramedic base. A station shared with the Deep River Fire Department is already in place in nearby Chalk River, but much more space is needed for the paramedics. County staff says the property is an excellent site, partly because itĘźs close to the hospitalĘźs emergency services department. The purchase price, says county property and development director Paul Moreau, is one dollar. Tenders will likely be requested this winter, with construction expected by the summer.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;ItĘźs a perfect situation because it allows for some signiďŹ cant sharing of resources with the hospital,â&#x20AC;? said Moreau. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It ďŹ ts better for service delivery.â&#x20AC;? Deep River is also among area hospitals with a helicopter pad for airlifting patients to Ottawa, Toronto and other hospitals. The property for the Deep River ambulance base station is 65 by 75 metres, or .445 of an acre. The site will house three ambulance bays and additional space for equipment storage, says county emergency services director Mike Nolan. Renfrew CountyĘźs paramedic service already has base stations in Eganville (where space is shared with the ďŹ re department), Arnprior, Renfrew, Pembroke, Petawawa and BarryĘźs Bay.

RenfrewĘźs annual water works report provides some positive reassurances for the department of development and works. Reeve Audrey Green, the public works committee chairperson, presented statistics from the report at the Feb. 11 meeting of Renfrew council. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We do see the number of emergency repairs reducing,â&#x20AC;? said development and works director Mike Asselin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That means the state of the buried infrastructure is getting better. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even though itĘźs getting old, I think we know where the problems are, through our asset-management programs that weĘźve done. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now the reports are reďŹ&#x201A;ecting that we are responding less to emergencies, and weĘźre able to plan our work a little better. I think things are going well.â&#x20AC;? There were six listed main repairs, starting with Renfrew Collegiate Institute on Bonnechere Street in January 2012 and ďŹ nishing with a ďŹ&#x201A;ushing of water mains on Hall, McLean and Peter streets Nov. 13. There were also six storm water repairs, of which three took place in May. There were 17 repair incidents for catch basins. One of the noted highlights was the 15 ďŹ&#x201A;ushings of hydrants, with the concentration of that work conducted in August to ďŹ&#x201A;ush out high rates of manganese discolouration (which was not a health hazard) caused by the summerlong drought. â&#x20AC;&#x153;ThatĘźs quite a record,â&#x20AC;? said Green. There were also six hydrant repairs and 36 calls for camera surveillance to see if main pipes needed clearing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;ItĘźs a service weĘźve been doing for several years at no charge,â&#x20AC;? said Asselin. Other development and works statistics included: â&#x20AC;˘ 44 relocates, which occur after residents call to ensure that digging doesnĘźt impact water mains; â&#x20AC;˘ 15 checks for leaks; â&#x20AC;˘ 31 water service calls, including one March 14 to turn off the water at Imbleau & Son Foundry, which had closed and thus ceased to become one of the oldest family-owned businesses in Canada; â&#x20AC;˘ 75 pumping station checks; â&#x20AC;˘ 11 incidents for valve repairs or maintenance; â&#x20AC;˘ 39 incidents for water me-

ter installation or maintenance (considering the aging infrastructure, Coun. Jim Miller said he would have expected much higher numbers); â&#x20AC;˘ 25 calls to clear blocked

Development and works director Mike Asselin hopes to have a report to Renfrew council in the next little while that deals with trafďŹ c concerns on Airth Boulevard and Barnet Boulevard. Both roads are being used, particularly Airth, as frequent shortcuts between Burnstown Road and Highway 132. â&#x20AC;&#x153;WeĘźre trying to ďŹ nd out trafďŹ c is moving through the area, and our objective is to try to limit the amount of cut-through

trafďŹ c,â&#x20AC;? said Asselin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So weĘźre going to be looking (at the possibility of reducing) the speed of vehicles going through that area, and the types of vehicles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We may start with signage, to try to discourage the trafďŹ c from cutting through that area. If the signs donĘźt work, we may reduce speed limits. These are all measures available to us.â&#x20AC;? The current speed limit of 50 km/h could be reduced to 40 km/h if signage if desired changes in trafďŹ c use and speed donĘźt materialize with the help of local

A large gathering of students were at St. Joseph’s Catholic High School recently for the school’s orientation program.

And they’re off: DR team ready for mission Abby Hall

Jaguar Journal

The Dominican Republic Experience is an annual mission trip to the municipality of Yamasá, bringing medical supplies, hard working bodies and open hearts. This yearʼs Dominican Republic team of Grade 11 and 12 students from both SJHS and Bishop Smith HS departed last Thursday evening, after a year of fundraising and preparations. The journey to the D.R. is highly contested by many students. It begins with an application process at the end of Grade 10, in which all applicants must demonstrate a clear commitment to helping people in many ways. This help is often rooted in volunteering in local chari-

ties but also includes a great deal of work in our Parishes, church communities, municipal events, or even local sports teams, as well as participation in our own school community. The applicants must be able to demonstrate a true willingness to make a difference in the lives of others. FUNDRAISERS

Once selected, the team fundraises through bakesales, jewellery and art shows and community projects, raising enough money to purchase medical supplies to deliver to the local hospital in Yamasá. Over the past five years alone, $150,000 of medical supplies have been delivered to the D.R. through the hands of students. The D.R. team also attends

regular retreats throughout the school year, preparing themselves emotionally and spiritually for the experience. But the D.R. Experience is so much more than our students helping others. This trip, in fact, is often responsible for changing the lives of the very people who go to “help”. Sonya Bergin, a member of this yearʼs D.R. team explains “just hearing about the past experiences some students have had, and how life changing it was for them, thatʼs what motivated me to experience it myself.” Many team members this year have similar motivation, having witnessed the changes in older students or older brothers and sisters. When the D.R. team arrives, they will face a busy schedule.

To meet the people of the Dominican Republic and experience the culture, the students will be staying with local families in the town of Yamasa. They will visit the schools and hospitals in the area, and to add some joy, the students will also paint houses fun colours for those who cannot afford to do so themselves.

Renfrew Card Sharks members Harvey and Janet McLaughlin welcome Dr. Sister Mary Margaret Ajiko of Ugandaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Soroti Referral Hospital.

Renfrew reaches out to Africa Gail Denault

The Renfrew Card Sharks are a group of retired and semi-retired women and men from Renfrew and surrounding area who meet weekly at the home of Harvey and Janet McLaughlin for a fun-packed afternoon of cards while raising monies for the missions in Africa. One recent afternoon, we were pleasantly surprised by a visit from Dr. Sister Margaret Ajiko, who works as a surgeon at the Soroti Referral Hospital in Uganda. This hospital is a catch point for two million people living in a 40-mile radius of northeastern Uganda. This hospital provides free service and is supported by the Ugandan government. However, at about two weeks into a three-month supply, the supplies all run out. Then, if someone arrives in need of surgery, they must purchase rubber gloves for the surgeon as well as sutures for their stitches and sometimes even the medications for the surgery. Without these there arenĘźt any surgeries performed, regardless of how needy the patient is (including deliveries). That is something to ponder the next time we are sched-

uled for surgery. Dr. Sister Margaret Ajiko, along with 30 other Ugandan physicians, were in Canada recently to attend two conferences, one in Hamilton and one in Ottawa, to discuss health care in Uganda and receive some training from their Canadian counterparts. As part of her time in Canada, Sister Margaret attended a fundraising dinner where $40,000 was raised in three days to build a recovery ward so surgery patients could safely recover at the Ongutoi Health Centre. Sister Margaret says her biggest need is power. Sometimes the power goes out during surgery and patients actually die on the operating table. Others develop brain problems when the oxygen machine shuts off. Often she has had to suspend surgery and close up a patient, operating under light from her cell phone only. Most regrettably, sometimes the power stays off for seven days at a time. In the childrenĘźs ward, four little ones often have to share one bed. There are just too many children in need and not enough beds. There is an average of 100 children for one nurse. Worse yet, there are power outages at night and

when the lights go out, so do the oxygen machines. Thanks to a very generous donation of $5,000, solar power has been installed in the childrenĘźs ward and now they will not die when the power goes out every week. Another goal is to raise an additional $5,000 for power for the emergency ward. Sister Margaret is also the leading surgeon at the Ongutoi Medical Centre (which is where much of the Card SharksĘź support goes). She sees Ongutoi as a ďŹ rst step to relieving the enormous pressure on the Soroti Hospital. Sister Margaret is now back in Uganda and ready to start surgeries at the operating theatre. In January, her focus was on starting up the recovery ward. Next on her agenda is fundraising for the pediatric recovery ward. The Renfrew Card Sharks were on hiatus for the Christmas season, but now that the New Year has arrived, the push is on to raise even more money in 2013 for the missions in Africa. We plan to do this while enjoying the company of good friends and the kind hospitality of the McLaughlinĘźs, all while taking part in one of our favourite activities. Get shufďŹ&#x201A;ing!

World Day of Prayer March 1 at St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hilary Rathwell

On Friday, March 1, 2013, the women of France invite you to join with them in the World Day of Prayer celebration, praying under the theme I Was a Stranger and You Welcomed Me. Each year the World Day of Prayer service brings with it a felling of curiosity. What will we learn about them and the focus country? What will challenge, inspire and encourage us? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our experiences of being a stranger and then being welcomed empower us to build connections and create

community where all are welcomed.â&#x20AC;? The women of France introduce us to six women on their committee. We learn their names and we learn some have come from other parts of Europe and Africa. With this introduction we realize that the World Day of Prayer Committee of France is inclusive and representative of the multi-cultural complexity of France. Please join us and invite your friends and family to attend the World Day of Prayer service and learn more about FranceĘźs culture and heritage. Join Christians in more

than 170 countries around the world and 2,000 communities across Canada who will gather on the World Day of Prayer to pray and act in solidarity with the people of France. A local World Day of Prayer service will be held at St. PaulĘźs Anglican Church, 96 Argyle St. Renfrew, at 2 p.m. on Friday, March 1. For more information on the WDP services in this community, please contact the church ofďŹ ce at (613)-432-3062. The Word Day of Prayer had its roots in an ecumenical day of prayer organized by women in Canada and the United States in 1920.

Another expansion for Megram Consulting Services Ltd. Peter Clark

It started almost 20 years ago with a request for flyers, ad designs and brochures from several local businesses. Today, it is one of the largest association management companies in Canada overseeing 12 non-profit and charitable organizations. Renfrew resident Bob Cross, president and founder of Megram Consulting Services Ltd., has announced the company is expanding once again, with two new national association clients – the Canadian Evaluation Society and the International Organisation for Cooperation in Evaluation. Together with vice-president and director of communications Meghan Howard, director of finance Bonnie James and a team of talented staff, Cross has grown Megram into a nationally and internationally recognized business. “When I first joined Megram nine years ago, my father was running the company by himself with a part-time secretarial assistant and was working from his home office. Now we have 11 skilled people and a 2,000 square foot office based in Renfrew,” says Howard. “And yet few people know we are here or understand what we do.” Association management is exactly that, explains Cross. Many professions, trades and special interest groups form associations run by volunteer boards. As the associations grow, the demand for member services does too, and the work load becomes too onerous for volunteers. Very large associations are able to establish their own offices and hire their own staff. However, for many organizations that simply is not feasible and instead often will hire a company like Megram. “Our clients include professional associations, trades, charitable organizations and academic groups; all are nonprofits with volunteer boards. Despite the associations being national, or international, modern technology means we can serve them from Renfrew. Even though people on our boards might be from B.C. or Russia, with teleconferences, and email and annual face-toface meetings, we can meet all their needs,” says Howard. The business offers the op-


The three principals of Megram Consulting Services Ltd., Bob Cross, Meghan Howard and Bonnie James. portunity for the volunteers to focus on their policies and what they want to accomplish and they implement those policies. “We essentially become the association. Between the three of us, we have over 110 years of experience in this kind of work,” says Cross. “The work we do includes membership services; investments; budgets and all aspects of financial management; communications; public relations; websites; meeting planning; and policy drafting – essentially any project the association takes on, we implement. “So for one association, we are fundraisers and run a scholarship program for women in engineering, for another we work on accreditation of professional programming, and for yet another, we promote the rights of Canadian Armed Force Pensioners.” “If they have a magazine that needs to be produced, weʼll write it, design it, edit it, and have it printed,” says James. “We create 12 newsletters a year with most of the copy generated in-house. We design and maintain the association websites, help them with their logos and branding, and oversee their budgets, investments, and audit requirements. And we are able to do it all here, without outsourcing because of the great people we have working for us.” Megram does all this, and in both official languages. “Thatʼs the amazing thing. We are in a small town with a business operating on a national and international scale but nobody knows what we

do,” says Howard. “We have people working here from Pembroke, Cobden, Arnprior, Horton, and Renfrew. They are skilled graphic designers, business administrators, programmers, web developers, and professional writers.” “As the three principals of the organization, Bob, Meghan and I are all executive directors of different organizations, matching our individual abilities to the clients for the best fit. We answer to our boards and work to represent them in most professional manner possible. This commitment to our clients is why we continue to grow,” says James. And while all this may sound technical and a little dull, the reality is just the opposite. Every day brings new challenges and exciting opportunities. There is a chance to see the country – business trips this year include Yellowknife, NWT and Victoria, B.C., and the chance to work with a diverse number of people with a wide array of interests and viewpoints. “I have learned that different professions definitely attract certain personality types. For example, who knew that agricultural economists would be so down to earth and happy, and yet they are a very enthusiastic group to work with,” says Howard. “We work with professional engineers, occupational therapists, Deans of Fine Arts, accreditation experts, die casters, and even do student OT placements for university programs – our clients are a microcosm of the Canadian population. It is ex-

citing and passionate work.” But it is not for everyone. The constant diversity of the work on a daily basis along with demands from different volunteers is not always easy. Working in association management has to be approached as a long-term learning curve and as a career – not a nine to five, punch the clock job, says Cross. “One of our biggest challenges has been hiring skilled staff, as we just get an employee understanding the job, and they move. Many donʼt necessarily realize the opportunity that is here because they think itʼs just in Renfrew, when they are really working on a national stage,” Howard noted. Howard says Megram follows the happenings at Renfrew Town Hall closely. “It impacts our business. We want Renfrew to grow. We are really sorry about the pool. Thatʼs a quality of life issue - we really want people to be able to come to this community and want to live here. We want to attract more young people and more clients as we will be hiring again in the next few months.” The companyʼs principals all agree that the team in place now, after much hard work and tweaking, is phenomenal. “We have a really amazing people working for Megram and our clients. Our expansion including hiring Lynn Burgess as our manager, membership services since we needed a dedicated person to supervise and control services across all of our client base,” Howard said. Cross, Howard and James recognize and thank Lynn, Taryn Guyea, Richard Eady, Pam Beauchamp, Anna Townend, Joanne Taylor, Anne Marie Schapp, and in particular Devon Lesk who has personally taken care of all their website clients for a number of years. In addition to association management, Megram also offers website design, development and maintenance services, graphic design and writing, and creation of promotional material for area businesses. It constitutes approximately 10 per cent of the overall business. “It is an important part of what we do,” says Cross, “It keeps us tied to the local economy and supporting local

business. We are proud to live and work in the Ottawa Valley and hope to stay in the area for a long time.” Megram is located at 3-247 Barr St. There is plenty of

room at the back for parking. They can be reached at 613432-9491. A list of association clients and services can be found at

Eager staff for new, temporary hospital Steve Newman

The junior and senior kindergarten class at Queen Elizabeth Public School was a busy hospital Feb. 12. The youngsters have been studying health and physical fitness, and talking about how many of the children and family members have visited Renfrew Victoria Hospital. It was decided the students would then host a hospital day. Topics discussed as part of the health and physical fitness unit included osteoporosis, and how bones become softer and less functional if thereʼs too little calcium in oneʼs diet. Proof came from leaving a turkey bone in a vinegar solution for a few days. “Weʼve been talking about healthy bodies, and that led the students to talking about hospitals,” said kindergarten teacher Michelle Wyatt. “Itʼs just part of the curriculum, and they learn as they go.” Preparation for hospital day included the building of medi-


cal cubicles and the creation of different departments. Thus certain words or signs appeared, spelled correctly or incorrectly, like emeergency room and stephoscope. “If you give them a chance to experience and use the words, when it comes time to use them they wonʼt be afraid to write them,” said Wyatt. With the help of donated scrubs and equipment from paramedics and hospital staff, kindergarten-age doctors, nurses and x-ray technicians were kept busy treating ʻpatientsʼ from other classes. Hospital departments in the kindergarten class included admissions, cardiology, ophthalmology, the lab, x-ray, the pharmacy and the operating room.

positive people and that they can really make a difference in the world. The students have been working in pairs to come up with ideas that would help a living thing, either animals, people or the environment. My daughter, Emily, and her partner, Shauna Church, are in Mrs. Wroeʼs class. After deciding to make fleece scarves to donate to the Salvation Army for individuals who may need warmer winter clothing, they made 30 scarves and presented them to store manager Shelley Jamieson. The girls are thrilled to be able to raise awareness for making a positive change in the world, no matter how small.

Here is Where it’s Happening



International Womenʼs Day is a time to celebrate acts of courage and determination by ordinary women in our own communities. Since 1993 Bernadette McCann House has been hosting an International Womenʼs Day event, to recognize women in Renfrew County that have contributed to the betterment of women in society. This year Bernadette McCann House is hosting an International Womenʼs Day event on Thursday, March 7, at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Pembroke. We are doing so in partnership with Petawawa Military Family Resource Centre, who will be celebrating their event on Friday, March 8, which Bernadette McCann House will be participating in. Having both an evening and an afternoon event offers the community a great opportunity to celebrate this very important day.

The guest speaker on Thursday, March 7 is Candice Price. A sergeant, Candice retired this past June from the Military after a total of more than 24 years. During her career she had the opportunity to deploy with Op Athena 2002-2003 Roto 0 in Afghanistan as well as several North American exercises. During these operations/ exercises she found she had a passion for helping people out and discussed with her two daughters the possibility of doing something like Habitat for Humanity, or working with an NGO such as Red Cross in South America, Dominican Republic or Haiti. The three of them agreed it was something they would like to do. On Jan. 12, 2010 a devastating earthquake hit Haiti. It was that moment that Candice decided to be there to help. On March 30, 2010 she made what she thought would be her one trip to Haiti. So far she has completed six trips to

TELL SOMEBODY about this: School Bus driving is not for those who want a full-time job, but it’s a wonderful opportunity for retirees or stay-at-home parents, or others with a little time on their hands to supplement their income while doing something important in our community, being a reliable role model for students, and making a real difference.

Loved and missed always Mom & Dad CLR416381

God knew that she was suffering That the hills were hard to climb So He closed her weary eyelids And whispered â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peace be thineâ&#x20AC;? Away in the beautiful hills of God By the valley of rest so fair Some day we know not when We will meet our loved one there

PETTIGREW, In loving memory of Mary Minnetta Pettigrew, a devoted wife, mother and grandmother, who passed away on February 23, 2003, in her 79th year. She left us, In the early morn; Without her family, To share her pain. We came, too late, To bid farewell; No time to whisper; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;til we meet again. Yet, she wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t alone, On her journey Home; But, met by loved ones, Gone on before. Paradise realized; No more earthly pain. Awaiting us now; To share love once more. Forever loved, Clarence, Murray & Helen, Ona & family Barrie & Lynda & family

Mary Kenopic In loving memory of dear mother & grandmother who passed away on Feb. 23, 2011.

You were such an awesome mother,

In loving memory of a dear husband, father & grandfather who passed away February 20, 2010.

The love you showed was like no other. Thank you Mother dear, sweet love,

Those whom we love go out of sight, But never out of mind; They are cherished in the hearts Of those they left behind, Loving and kind in all his ways, Upright and just in all his days His humor would amaze, Sincere and true in heart and mind, Beautiful memories he left behind.

Now youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll watch over us from heaven above.

With love from all your family.

Always in our thoughts, with love, Wife Lillian E & family

If I could have a lifetime wish a dream that would come true Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d pray to God with all my heart for yesterday and you. A thousand words canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bring you back I know because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve tried And neither will a million tears I know because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve cried. You left behind my broken heart and happy memories too I never wanted memories... I only wanted you. All my love Chris

There is always a face before me, A voice I love to hear, A smile I will always remember, Of a son, I love so dear, Deep in my heart, there is a picture, More precious than silver or gold, Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a picture of our son, His memory will never grow old.


Full-Time PHYSIOTHERAPIST To provide rehabilitation services to inpatients/outpatients as part of the Rehabilitation Program



In loving memory of our son

To have, to love and then to part, Is the greatest sorrow of oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heart. Time doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take away the memory, Of the happy days we all had together.
