COURT APPEARANCE ON MURDER CHARGE Renfrew resident Dugald Jamieson, 47, who is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Carol-Anne Brunet, was scheduled to make his first appearance in Renfrew court on Wednesday morning, June 9. Jamieson, who grew up in Horton Township, is also charged with breach of probation. Brunet, 54, was found dead about 1 a.m. Monday, May 31, in her Renfrew apartment at 236 Hall Avenue. Several police vehicles were on the scene of the 89-unit Renfrew County Housing Corporation building. It was a tragic week for members of Brunet’s family. Her brother, Wayne Popplewell, 51, of Renfrew died June 4. The two deceased are children of Linda and the late Harold Popplewell.

Admaston-Bromley taxes rise 2.28% LUCY HASS
Taxpayers in Admaston-Bromley Township will pay 2.28 per cent more for municipal services in 2010. The overall real assessment increase – merging municipal, county and education taxes – is 5.4 per cent. Council gave its financial framework the stamp of approval last Thursday night. Factors impacting the budget were decreases in the Ontario Municipal Partnership Fund (-$149,000 from 2009), federal gasoline tax (-$8,445) and investment income, and increases in library grant, the fire levy, and Wards 3 and 4 recreation funding. The total 2010 levy is $2,645,476, based on $941,124 municipal (35.58%), $907,682 county (34.31%) and $796,670 education (30.11%). A further breakdown of the municipal portion shows roads consumed 45.04% of the budget, police and fire 18.63%, administration 16.72%, waste management 9%, recreation and library 3.38%, council costs 3.13%, drains and planning 2.68%, building and sewage .97% and animal control .45%.

Pitching Expo 150 LUCY HASS
County of Renfrew Expo 150 organizers are rallying the troops. Chair Bob Sweet attended Admaston-Bromley council June 3, supported by event finance chair Dave Darch and Fred Blackstein who oversaw the successful International Plowing Match. The Lord Provost of Renfrewshire, Scotland and the warden are expected to attend the event. Sweet said the June 2011 dates were also “chosen purposely” so schools can plan end-of-year trips to the free-admission showcase of Renfrew County – past, present and future. The organizers are seeking sponsorships with all 19 municipalities as well as businesses, organizations and private citizens. Studying a layout of the site, Mayor Raye Anne Briscoe was impressed. “This is a fabulous setup. Now we have to fill it up,” she said. “This community will be greatly involved,” she assured. “It’s a wonderful, wonderful opportunity.”
Continued from front The budget session opened with a report on two major projects in the municipality. Under the Building Canada Fund a $352,232 Douglas Streets project was financed by $151,272 from township taxation, plus $100,480 each from the federal and provincial government. Infrastructure Stimulus Fund money was used for a $425,843 office addition, financed by $217,843 from township taxation, plus $104,000 each from the federal and provincial governments. An Invest Ontario grant of $30,000 will cover the cost of paving the office parking lot. Fifty-three pages of explanation were presented in a 2010 Budget Power Point presentation, and separate lineby-line supporting documentation included in council’s agenda package. Capital improvement highlights for 2010 are: • completion of the Stone Road municipal office addition; • flooring and automatic door at the Barr Line office; • completion of surface treatment of the South McNaughton Road; • Osceola landfill site expansion; • recreation facility construction at Admaston Public School; • Stone Road transfer station ramp and signage; • increased recycling promotion and distribu-
tion of blue bins to all residents; and • two satellite phones and a computer smartboard. The capital plan calls for no equipment purchases this year, but council will keep a close eye on the status of its inventory. Road construction plans include 1.5 kilometres of Holmes Road (ditch, gravel and double-surface treatment Swamp Road towards Ferguslea Road); dig out McMahon Road; 4.4 km. Snake River Line (single surface treatment Cobden Road to Burwell Road); and 2.5 km. South McNaughton Road (padding and single-surface treatment Rowan Road to Kennelly Road.) Other budget notes of interest: • Staff and council will receive a cost of living allowance (COLA) increase of 1.4 per cent; • Negotiations are underway with the Ontario Provincial Police as the existing five-year contract expires Aug. 1 this year. • The township has made a $25,000 commitment to the Renfrew and Area Health Service Village Economic Development Plan. • The only reserve remaining in 2010 is $414,798 in capital. Working funds and Douglas Fire reserves are empty. A bylaw was passed to set tax rates based on the 2010 budget. Forty-five per cent of the tax rate was due March 31, 2010 and the balance will be due Sept. 30, 2010.

Former MP Clouthier to run as independent in federal election LUCY HASS email@example.com
He says it’s not about party, it’s about representation. Former Renfrew-NipissingPembroke Liberal MP Hector Clouthier is back, announcing his intention to run as an independent in the next federal election. Clouthier made the official announcement Wednesday, hanging his trademark hat on the power of independence. “I still have a yearning for public life,” he says, explaining how he broke ranks with the Liberal Party of Canada. Clouthier says he met Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff in February 2009, at the leader’s request, and was asked to run again for the Liberals. Clouthier was interested, but had one demand – if an issue came to the floor where he knew his constituents’ wishes conflicted with the party line, he would be allowed to vote freely for his constituents. “I learned a very valuable lesson from Bill C-68,” Clouthier says, referring to the controversial gun legislation that taught
him all about the price paid when you stray from the majority’s wishes. In the end, free votes couldn’t be assured and Clouthier said Ignatieff told him he would get back to him. He never did, says Clouthier. Instead, Renfrew County native and current Toronto lawyer Christine Tabbert was selected to carry the Liberal banner into the next federal election. Clouthier says he still has a lot to offer, and is convinced the freedom of serving as an independent will allow him to face reigning Conservative MP Cheryl Gallant – on his own terms. He has also spoken with current Independent MP Andre Arthur about the power of independence in minority government, and Clouthier believes this rural riding’s voters can be better served by someone not handcuffed by the constraints of partisan politics. “The system is broken,” says Clouthier, adding he wants to be part of parliamentary reform to create better government. Clouthier says the “shine is off ” Prime Minister Stephen Harper, and MPs like Gallant
Hector Clouthier have very little influence in his style of governing, whereas an independent would be truly free to fight on behalf of his constituents. “I believe people are starting to take a different look at things,” he said. “In a minority situation, with the power that an independent can have, I’d be their (the Conservative government’s) worst nightmare down there,” he adds. “The last thing they want is a fellow like me as an independent.” “As an independent in a minority situation, they (whichever party is in power) needs every vote they can get,” he says. “As an independent, they would have to deal with me.” Clouthier is proud to know “all
of the key players.” He is also proud of his recognition factor, and the substantial knowledge and experience gained as both an MP and an advisor in the Prime Minister’s Office. He describes his time in the PMO as “the best three years of my life.” Nor is this new ground. Clouthier ran as an independent once before, and placed second that time to long-time Liberal MP Len Hopkins. And although he is not running as a Liberal, Clouthier says he hopes a lot of Liberals will support him as an independent. Clouthier identifies his top issues as representation, opposing the pending harmonized sales tax (HST) supported in a House of Commons vote by MP Gallant, threats to jobs at Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd., and gun registration. On the latter issue, Clouthier, who is himself a hunter, stresses proposed Conservative legislative changes wouldn’t scrap the registry, nor eliminate its costliness. For his full position on the gun registry, and other issues such as the pending HST which he describes as “dreadfully wrong,”
Google ‘Hec Clouthier Independent.’ Next week he launches a series of newspaper ads on issues of key concern to the riding’s residents; voters he feels have been abandoned by MP Gallant. He said Gallant also has racked up the highest expenses of all eastern Ontario MPs and he wants to know why. This week Clouthier and wife Debbie celebrate their 35th wedding anniversary, but Clouthier hopes to have another celebration in his future – after a federal election he expects will be called this fall. Meanwhile he has no illusions. He knows the fight will be tough. “I’m the underdog in this fight,” he says. But there’s no doubt he’s ready to fight. Borrowing from the mantra of current U.S. President Barack Obama who energized an apathetic American public to give them their first black president, Clouthier wants RenfrewNipissing-Pembroke residents to care again and vote again. “Yes, I can. Yes, we can,” he says.
Expenditures down as McNab-Braeside struggles to keep taxes reasonable firstname.lastname@example.org
McNab-Braeside council passed a $5.8 million budget May 18 that cuts expenditures by 3.05 per cent but will still result in a small property tax increase for most township residents. “We’ve never passed such a tight budget,” said treasurer Connie Graham, noting the loss of $142,400 in Ontario Municipal Partnership funding made it a challenge to keep the tax
increase reasonable while maintaining core services. Inflationary increases and the HST have added to the budgetary pressures. Therefore, it was quite an achievement to cut back expenditures to keep the municipal tax increase to under one per cent, said Mayor Mary Campbell. Added to a 2.3 per cent county increase and the freeze in the school tax rate, the bottom line for McNab-Braeside residents with a $190,000 home that is increasing in assessed value by
the average 5.26 per cent is they will pay $57.03 more in 2010. A typical farm property will see a tax boost of about $10, but because of capping provisions and lower assessment increases, the average commercial and industrial property-owner will pay lower taxes than 2009. Council also reduced expenditures last year, but increased the capital budget significantly, which resulted in an average $98 increase in 2009 for homeowners. Despite cuts in expenditures again, the 2010 budget does

cil, Graham pointed out that for every tax dollar the township collects, it retains 34 cents, with Renfrew County receiving 38 cents and the schools 28 cents. In a budget statement, council Council thanked the CAOclerk, department heads and staff for “working so diligently toward minimizing the significant impacts to our taxpayers.” Council also approved the 2010 garbage levy, which remains the same as 2009. A remuneration bylaw was also passed, taking into account three per cent pay increases.

SUNSHINE COACH Traditionally, Sunshine Coach has received $35,000 of its local municipal funding from the town, but that figure has already been reduced to at least $30,000 this year, as staff and council continue to strive for a tax increase (for the municipal portion of the property tax bill) of 1.9 per cent over 2009. The main purpose of his presentation, said Dagg, was that Sunshine Coach would be grateful if the town could continue to financially support the transportation network for seniors and disabled people in the Renfrew area. With an aging population, Dagg says the number of people needing Sunshine Coach’s services in the next decade is likely to increase. “We have to prepare ourselves to be here in 10 years,” said Dagg. The reduction by at least $5,000 for Sunshine Coach coincides with the town’s increased support for physician recruitment, from $20,000 to $25,000. Coun. Bill Ringrose surmised that the town’s and the Friends of Sunshine Coach could both increase their financial support, in years to come, if it’s found that rebates and government grants have reduced.
AUCTION SALES FRIDAY EVENING, JUNE 11, 2010
Renfrew councillors Bill Ringrose, left, and Tom Anderson, and treasurer Keray O’Reilly review draftbudget figures. If Renfrew succeeds in having a 1.9 per cent tax increase, this will be over and above the 2009 actual budget, including supplementaries (or partial-year tax payments by local businesses).

MAJOR CHALLENGES A major challenge has been the general increase of about three per cent per year for salary contracts that were determined a few years ago. Salaries and benefits account for about 55 per cent of the entire budget, says treasurer Keray O’Reilly. “To give people about three per cent and hold the line at 1.9 per cent (overall) is a big challenge,” he said. In pursuit of that less-than-twoper-cent increase, council must now locate $50,000 for its major capital reserves. Those reserves hold $200,000, from annual $50,000 contributions in 2005 through 2008. There was no contribution last year, with $50,000 allocated to work on the town’s recreation master plan. Another $50,000 is also needed to replace the aging rink boards inside the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre. Recreation director Kelley Whitman-McKie says the boards in the 22-year-old facility are rotting and need replacement. The town is also taking a financial hit with the closure of the Renfrew day care centre in early September. DAY CARE EXPENSES The net loss to operate the day care in 2009 was $110,000, but the net loss for the eight months of operation in 2010 is forecast at $107,000. The town will also have to pay out $152,500 in severances to eight staff members. “What pleases me most,” said O’Reilly about budget preparations so far, “is there is no reduction in services, with the exception of the day care which we decided to close.” Renfrew’s finance committee was scheduled to meet yesterday (June 9) to finalize the budget.

Some $50,000-questions remain as town council and staff head down the home stretch toward approval of Renfrew’s 2010 budget. A special budget meeting is set for June 23, allowing for some wriggle room if the budget is not approved that night, since provincial legislation requires the budget to be approved by June 30. A couple of $50,000-questions are among budget items that council and staff scrutinized during town council’s three-hour briefing session June 7. About one-third of the meeting was taken up with budget discussion, while the remainder of the meeting’s highlights were subdivision development at Hunter Gate, Sunshine Coach administrator Norm Dagg’s request for continued financial support from town council, and a discussion with health service village committee members Raye-Anne Briscoe of Admaston-Bromley and Peter Emon of Greater Madawaska, following the committee’s recent election of officers and continuing efforts to spearhead family doctor recruitment in the Renfrew area.

Salute to seniors
Fix EAs for fairness
une is Seniors Month across Ontario, and nowhere is the celebration taken more seriously than in Renfrew. From opening day to the wrap-up celebration later this month, local seniors homes are hosting a wide range of events. Staff from the Renfrew Victoria Hospital continuing care ward, the Bonnechere Manor, Groves Park Lodge and the Quail Creek Retirement Centre are all to be commended on the spirit of co-operation they demonstrate as they pull together a long list of celebrations. A job well done.
FAKE LAKE MISTAKE Just when you think the state of the upcoming G20 and G8 summits in Huntsville and Toronto can’t get any crazier, it does. The latest madness – a fake lake – is designed to impress the media. We are not amused. Tourism and economic development are one thing. Reckless spending is quite another. Any journalist worth his or her salt is attending the summit for things that matter – like progress on issues that effect the world community. Most are not nearly so shallow and awe-striken as the federal government would like to believe. The best gift world leaders can give the media today is straight talk – something politicians obviously feel they can’t afford.
Don’t waste taxpayer dollars on hybrid election
To the editor: Normally I would not write to the editor on any issue. However, this issue demands a letter. I read with horror your paper’s June 3rd report on the so called ‘Hybrid Election’ that municipal council has decided to go with for the 2010 municipal election. I wonder what our council was thinking when they made this decision! Ratepayers in Renfrew enjoy the fruits of many things in our town. It is a wonderful place to live! We are unfortunately not blessed, however, with a very innovative council. We continually see articles and letters about increased costs associated with the running of the municipality. Case in point was the recent increases in
water rates that we all have to suffer. Now our council has decided to increase the cost of the municipal election significantly by running this unnecessary Hybrid Election of alternative voting and traditional paper ballot. What a waste! Although ratepayers have not been made aware of the additional costs running the election this way, based on a little easy research, the ratepayer of Renfrew will now have to absorb an additional cost of some $10,000 to accommodate this combination of methods. Having had the benefit of researching the Intelivotesystem of alternate voting, I am sure that Renfrew council was made aware, by their professional staff and the people from Intelivote, that running both a pa-
Mercury Mercur y The Renfrew
per ballot and a phone-internet system serves only to confuse voters, not make things easier for them. Interestingly, despite what Mayor Heins is quoted as stating in the May 20 edition of the Mercury, statistics and history have proven that senior voters take to an alternate voting method much more easily, as many already use computers and phones for banking, staying in touch with relatives and grand children. Seniors are much more adept than Mayor Heins is giving them credit for. I must congratulate Councillors Anderson, Guyea and Windle for their vote against this hybrid election. At least these three councillors have paid attention to Intelivote officials and Renfrew mu-
nicipal staff ! Too bad the rest of council have not followed suit! I encourage all ratepayers to ask councillors why Renfrew is prepared to spend more than necessary for a municipal election in a time of restraint, resulting in increasing taxes and fees for municipal services. This Hybrid Election is totally unnecessary and an unmitigated waste of OUR tax dollars. Ratepayers can still change this decision if we want to encourage council to do the right thing. Talk to the members of council and demand that they cease pursuing this hybrid election process immediately. Don’t waste out money, council! John Baird Renfrew

To the editor: It is now 15 years (May 31, 1995) since the Ministry of Transportation Ontario selected a route east of Olmstead Jeffrey Lake for Highway 17 expansion. It is the same route that appeared inexplicably, as an added alternative, four months earlier, halfway through the Environmental Assessment (EA) process. It is this route that poses the greatest negative impact to the lake and its supporting environment. It is this route that was selected over the long-designated, less invasive and less costly expansion of the current Hwy 17. This makes absolutely no sense to us. And, indeed, our ensuing investigation indicated a seriously flawed process. Since then, our input and considerable expressions of concern have been largely ignored. And so it was an “AHA” moment for the Jeffrey Lake Cottage and Home Owners when Gord Miller, Ontario’s Environmental Commissioner recently declared the EA process “broken” and the outcomes “pre-ordained.” We saw this highway route issue mirrored in his findings – an EA process driven by a pre-ordained outcome. There is much at stake here. Beyond the obvious destruction of forests, wetlands, wildlife habitat/corridor, fish habitat and water quality, we must also consider issues of Tourism & Recreation, property values and wells and water supplies (10 years postWalkerton). Almost 400 years ago Samuel de Champlain camped on the shores of Olmstead Jeffrey Lake, where, he writes, “The mosquitoes molested us greatly.” Generations later we, as temporary stewards of this place, have a responsibility, as do local and provincial representatives, to protect these resources. To that end, we are looking for leadership in ensuring that the EA process is fixed, and outcomes, thereby, fair and reasonable.

Rathwell to run for reeve of Whitewater STEVE NEWMAN
Don Rathwell won’t be back as Whitewater Region mayor next municipal term. That’s because the Muskrat Lake resident announced Thursday that he’ll not run for another term as mayor. However, with restructuring of the Whitewater Region council, he will be eligible to remain on Renfrew County council if elected reeve in the October 2010 municipal election. As is already the case for Renfrew and Arnprior, Whitewater will send its reeve (and not its mayor) to county council.
Beachburg resident Ron Lowe, Rathwell’s deputy-mayor for seven years, is now expected to run for mayor. A few weeks ago, Rathwell indicated his election plans would be done in conjunction with Lowe’s. Whitewater’s nine council positions will be reduced to seven. The new council in October 2010 will consist of one councillor for each of four wards, plus a mayor, deputy-mayor and reeve. Rathwell hasn’t entirely ruled out the possibility, if elected, of running for a third straight term as Renfrew County warden. “If nothing changes, I won’t run for warden again,” said Rathwell.
He said he’s 95 per cent sure he’ll not run again. He plans to see which county councillors are elected, not elected or retire before deciding for sure. “I had already said I felt two years would be sufficient, so I’ve made that known to most of the members of county council,” said Rathwell. Whitewater’s new council in October 2010 will consist of one councillor for each of four wards, plus a mayor, deputy-mayor and reeve. Current councillor Izett McBride has already said he’ll run for deputymayor. Rathwell will file his nomination papers for reeve this week.

Renfrew County residents, farmers, business owners, and municipal representatives are invited to a free Renewable Energy workshop on Wednesday, June 16 at 7 p.m. at the Cobden Agricultural Hall. The workshop will feature three guest speakers who will offer useful information on various types of renewable energy projects that they have been involved with, and how they could be easily replicated in Renfrew County. Topics to be covered in the workshop include, generating income from the MicroFIT and FIT programs, community and wind and solar projects, First Nations community wind projects, community micro-hydro generation, local opportunities for biomass growers and developing a biomass growers network. The guest speakers for this workshop will be Graham Findlay of 3G Energy Corp, Ottawa; Rosanne Van Schie of Algonquin Agro Energy Inc, Mattawa; and Muffy Koch of Burritt’s Rapids Renewable Energy Corporation, Burritt’s Rapids. With its agriculture and forestry industries, as well as its advantageous geographical location for the production wind, solar and micro-hydro energy, Renfrew County has great potential for developing numerous private and community renewable energy projects. The workshop is being organized by the Ottawa River Institute, a local not-for-profit organization that promotes sustainable communities and ecological integrity in Renfrew County and the Upper Ottawa Valley. The Ontario Trillium Foundation is an agency of the Government of Ontario with an annual funding of $120 million .

The Renfrew and District Food Bank receives a steady flow of food supplies most of the year. But late spring and early summer have typically meant more desperate times, especially this year. Therefore, the food bank is hosting a special food drive this Saturday, from 8 to 11 a.m., at its location on 167 Raglan Street South. The food bank is actually closer to Plaunt Street, located behind Kids Corp, between the fire hall and old licence bureau. “The issue is that the food supply is very low in the summer, but the number of clients visiting the food bank remains the same,” said food bank vice-president Debi Virtue. “We do get great support from the community for eight months of the year,” said food bank president Doug Brookes. “But for some reason this time of the year donations go down. Total food donated over the last three years is down about 20 per cent.” The food bank relies strictly on food and cash donations, stressed the two board members. Financial donations go to pay for rent, insurance, phone bills and food supplies. Board members say increasing use of the food bank represents the continuing impact of last year’s recession. Lately, the food bank has been spending about $2,000 per month to stock its own shelves, to ensure there’s enough food for area clients. “The fire hall and (Renfrew) Metro are two drop-off points, or people can drop off items when we are open,” says Brookes.
TUESDAY DROP-OFFS The food bank is open three Tuesdays each month. Those wishing to drop off food or cash before or after Saturday’s special food drive can do so 9 a.m. to noon the last Tuesday of the month; noon to 3 p.m. the second-to-last Tuesday; and 9 a.m. to noon the third-to-last Tuesday. Planting an extra row of vegetables for the food bank is also something the board of directors suggests to citizens. More than 300 people use the food bank each month, including those on social assistance, retirees and senior citizens.
VIOLENCE, LANGUAGE MAY OFFEND
Non-perishable items are regularly received, but are still needed. Such products include pasta, canned goods, apple sauce, juice and peanut butter. The food bank also needs personal hygiene items, such as diapers, toothpaste, toilet paper, shampoo and soap. Those stocks are empty. The food bank is also without any of the less essential, but popular, items such as coffee, tea, jello, sugar and other baking supplies. Remaining food supplies might last for two days of pick-ups. Supplies are low despite the assistance of Mike Wright’s Renfrew Collegiate Institute’s civics class, which conducted a successful three-day food drive in the spring. For more details about the food bank, including the June 12 special food drive, call the food bank at 613-433-9216.

Plans for rural seniors housing complex withdrawn JOHN CARTER
A proposed seniors housing project on White Lake Road might have been too far ahead of its time. David St. Amour announced last week that he and his partners have withdrawn their request to the township for support and are trying to sell the 12-acre property. He praised the assistance and encouragement he had received from the township, but said the
approval process is too long, complicated, expensive and uncertain to make it worth the risk. The property involved is designated farm land. McNab-Braeside Mayor Mary Campbell said she is disappointed, but understands the decision. The proposal was innovative and could have pushed the township to the forefront of providing a much needed seniors housing option in a rural setting, she said. The plan was for a rural adaptation of urban style accom-
modations, she said, adding that it could have proved such housing does not necessarily require urban water and sewer connections. “It was the right idea, but not the right time,” she said. “There just wasn’t enough support.” St. Amour and his partners asked council in April for a gesture of support, so as to have some assurance they weren’t wasting their time and money. “We have to be realistic,” he said, explaining that the approval process could have taken well
McNab-Braeside council decides to hire facilities-public works manager JOHN CARTER firstname.lastname@example.org
McNab-Braeside council has decided to add a public works and property manager position to its staff. The township has advertised the new position with the deadline for applications June 18. Mary Campbell stressed that the new position is not replacing or changing the job being done by township road superintendent Brian Box. “He’s a wonderful person doing a great job,” she said. However, the township felt that with 15 recreation, fire and parks facilities it made sense to have a property manager. There are also the new facility accessibility

the township, especially from CAO Noreen Mellema, building inspector Doug Schultz and Campbell. “I have every intention of working with the township on other projects,” he said. “But next time I think I’ll do something a little bit easier on them and us. “I’d like to leave the precedentmaking … the ground-breaking to those who have more time,” he added. “I don’t have that amount of staying power.” The project has been proposed for land between the Madawaska River and White Lake Road near the Mountain Creek Golf Course.

questions to tackle under the new provincial legislation. Adding public works responsibilities to the position fits well and will provide leadership and coordination in a variety of areas, some that “don’t have a home right now,” Campbell explained. She said taking the responsibility for waste management and cemeteries from treasurer-deputy clerk Connie Graham will free her up for her core duties. As well, having a facilities manager will enable the new recreation director, when hired, to focus on programming instead of being always asked to deal with facility issues, she added. Campbell said the new manager can also tackle security concerns council has about some of its properties, notably the Waba Museum buildings.
over two years and forced the developers to undertake a number of costly studies without any high expectation of success. St. Amour said setting a precedent by approving a $45-million multi-unit residential development on farmland with some sort of high-technology water and sewer service would have been risky for both the developers and the township. “We don’t want to put the township in a position where they might be liable,” he said. “I have a feeling this would have been a major task even for a big town.” He said was delighted by the co-operation he received from

The students were selling candies for a $1, while coffee sales accounted for most of the fundraising to send kids to camp. More than $9 million was raised across Canada and the United States last year to send more than 14,000 children, ages 9 to 12, to camp for 10 days. From left, in the front row, are Iain Reid and Matt Phillips; back row, Beth Powell, Catrina Huyer and Kristin MacMillan “It’s a really important program,” said Janine Lafont, the Bruce Street Tim Hortons general manager. “It gives kids, who don’t get the opportunity to go away, to go to camp in Canada or the United States.

United Way, Kids Corp team up PETER CLARK email@example.com
The Renfrew County United Way is partnering with the Renfrew and Area Community Resource Centre – Kids Corp – to fund a community-based program that teaches children about healthy eating and how to prepare nutritious meals. The program is for children ages 3-6 who live in Renfrew, AdmastonBromley, Horton, McNab-Braeside and Greater Madawaska. The United Way’s Funds Distribution Committee has approved a grant of $1,500 from its Community Support Fund to help deliver a program that teaches children food preparation skills and allows them to participate in fun-learning activities about food, nutrition and food safety. During the program, children will have an opportunity to try new foods from the fruit and vegetable food group, including those foods children might not try at home. Parents will be included in
the program since they are the child’s main role model and meal providers. “We are pleased to support this program as it is part of the United Way’s commitment to partner with community stakeholders in addressing one of the County’s high priority needs related to youth,” said Cathi Fairfield, chair of the United Way Funds Distribution Committee and board member from Arnprior. “This program is one small step that we, as a community, must take to ensure healthy eating habits among our most important resource – our children. Recent statistics related to heart disease and obesity among children in Renfrew County is a wake-up call that we must do more to promote a more healthy living style for our citizens, including increased physical activity and better eating habits.” Renfrew County United Way executive director David Studham made the cheque presentation to Kids Corp program director Cathy Leclaire and the kids.
United Way supports CPAN’s Backpack Plus Renfrew County United Way has announced a series of grants. Among those is $5,000 to the Renfrew County Child Poverty Action Network (CPAN) Backpack Plus program and its efforts to end child poverty throughout the County. The objective of Backpack Plus is to supply every child in need in Renfrew County with a backpack, school supplies and shoes. The goal of this and other CPAN programs, like Operation Snowsuit and the Social Inclusion Project, is to ensure that all children in the county are able to return to school each year in dignity, ready and able to learn regardless of their family’s socioeconomic status. These other programs are former recipients of United Way funding. “With one out of nine children
living below the poverty line in Renfrew County, our communities must rise to the challenge and help organizations like CPAN to find ways to mitigate the effects of poverty on children and ultimately to work with senior levels of government to deal with the root causes,” said Cathi Fairfield, chair of the United Way Funds Dsitribution Committee. “Child poverty is one of the United Way’s six strategic priorities and we will continue to work with CPAN and other organizations on this issue until we succeed in eliminating this unfortunate situation.” Backpack Plus was one of the first initiatives that CPAN undertook following its creation in the year 2000. The goal for 2010-11 is to help at least 1,600 children and youth at a cost of $117,000.

The Renfrew Mercury - June 10, 2010
STEVE NEWMAN firstname.lastname@example.org
Horton council made its much-anticipated decision June 1 on the area’s family physician recruitment model Tuesday. Renfrew, Admaston-Bromley and Greater Madawaska had already decided to each donate $25,000 annually in the drive for much-needed doctors. Coun. Dave Bennett introduced a motion calling for Horton Township to add an estimated 1.7 percentage points to this year’s tax rate. By a 4-1 vote, Horton supported the motion to provide an extra $17,000 for doctor recruitment. Having already committed $8,000 for this year, Horton’s commitment for 2010 is now $25,000. Horton will commit the same amount each year, plus a two per cent inflationary increase in each of 2011, 2012 and 2013. Citing the need for a public meeting, Coun. Bob Kingsbury opposed the motion. Kingsbury said he had “called a considerable number of our residents” for their opinion. He said several residents had questions that remained unanswered by Renfrew and area health services committee members during their visit to Horton council May 18. Those unanswered questions, said Kingsbury, included: Who decides on the recruiter’s salary; why is Renfrew Victoria Hospital not involved; is it legal to add any of Horton’s financial commitment to the tax bill; and why not pay a bonus to people who actually bring a doctor to the area? “I have not talked to anyone who was in favour of the presentation,” said Kingsbury. Horton council members supporting the motion were Bennett, Mayor Bob Johnston, Deputy Mayor Bob Hall and Coun. Don Eady. “My questions were answered when we had the meeting,” said Eady of the twohour session May 18. He said the need for local doctors needs addressing because in four or five years “this is going to be one huge problem.” “We throw the money in the pot. A lot
of the questions won’t be answered until we get the model in place.” Deputy-Mayor Hall wondered if there was any alternative, if the area is to find more doctors. “No one has called me to tell me there’s an alternative,” he stressed. It appeared Coun. Bennett might oppose Horton’s support of the model. In fact, he said he was uncomfortable adding $17,000 to Horton’s tax bill, but wondered if anything substantial would be accomplished with a public meeting. “I feel it’s necessary to get doctors, but I also feel (the model) should have been prepared more before it got to us,” said Bennett. “I’m really tossed right now about whether a public meeting will solve the issue or just delay the whole process.” More than 4,000 area residents are without a family doctor. That number will rise with other doctors moving away or retiring. Ironically, the Ontario Medical Association (OMA) has just announced more doctors are working in the province than a few years ago, and that more patients than ever are receiving the care they need. Since 2008, some 600,000 patients who previously didn’t have access to a family doctor now do, announced the OMA last week. In the same release, OMA president Dr. Mark MacLeod said the organization is proud of the achievement and will continue to do its part “to ensure everyone in the province has access to a family doctor. “There has been some great progress with the recruitment and retention of doctors to Ontario, which is good news for patients and our health care system, but we know there is more work to do.” Greater Madawaska Reeve Peter Emon, a member of the Renfrew and area health services, agrees. But he also expressed satisfaction with Horton’s decision to contribute $25,000 each year for physician recruitment. “I’m so glad Horton’s in,” said Emon, noting Horton has a history of supporting important community ventures in the area.
Horton Township’s decades-old bylaw that prevented the sale of fireworks is now history. The fire committee recommended May 19 that council grant Keith Arbuthnot of Stereo Automotive permission to display and sell fireworks throughout the year. This permission is subject to annual inspection by the Horton fire department. The fire department also recommended
the fireworks bylaw include a clause that requires fireworks to “be stored, handled and set off in a safe manner that does not create a nuisance, taking into account noise, risk of fire and explosions, risk of injury and risk of property damage.” Horton council unanimously passed the bylaw at its June 1 council meeting. The previous bylaw, passed in October 1984, allowed the sale of fireworks only the four days proceeding Canada Day, Victoria Day and the birthday of the reigning sovereign.

Renfrew Mayor Sandi Heins was named president of the Renfrew and area health services village committee Friday. The committee, which is spearheading the doctor recruitment model, also elected other officers at Friday’s meeting. They were Admaston-Bromley Mayor RayeAnne Briscoe as vice-president; Greater Madawaska Reeve Peter Emon as interim secretary; and Hessel vander Velde of Scotiabank as the financial officer. Other committee members are Horton Mayor Bob Johnston and business community members Kent Tubman and Karen Maxwell. By the fall, the committee hopes to have committee representatives in place from
Renfrew Victoria Hospital and the Renfrew Industrial Commission, which is offering free office space for the new development officer. Two of the most pressing issues for the committee, which was formed this spring, are completion of a memorandum of understanding for the participating municipalities, and the hiring of a business development officer. The committee hopes to complete the officer’s job description this month. He or she is expected to be hired this summer. A key role of the business development officer may be the recruitment of dollars from the business community so Renfrew has sufficient dollars to entice doctors and/or other health-related businesses or business people to the area.

Dewey Data from the Greater Madawaska Library MARY JOAN HALE The Greater Madawaska Public Library offers many resources for gardeners: Canadian Gardening and Canadian House and Home, DIY videos and DVDs, as well as a wealth of gardening and DIY books. While working with hoe and shovel or hammer and saw, you might want to also borrow a book on flora and fauna. We may have to cancel some magazines due to a shortage of funds. These include children’s titles Owl, Chickadee, National Geographic for Kids, and Kayak; and adult titles like Martha Stewart Living, Canadian Geographic, Canadian Gardening and more. If you are interested in sponsoring any of these, all or in part, please let me know. A tax receipt can be given for cash or
a donation by cheque. Sorry, we are too small for plastic! I have kept the pledge deadline open after the Ottawa Race Weekend. Dani and Maxine had a target of $1,000 which they surpassed three weeks ago. The red is about to burst out of the thermometer. If we could get to $2,000 (or more) it would be great. The response has been wonderful. Thanks to all who contributed, to Calabogie Family Grocery for letting the girls take pledges out front one weekend, to Shooter’s and Pinky’s for taking pledges and to all of you who gave your support. I truly believe that folks value their library and its place in the community, not only by their contribution to this activity, but by their presence at the circulation desk, computer lab and preschool Storytyme. New patrons are in double digits many months!

1910: Local man treasures old coin
Changes worth seeing at museum SARAH DUPUIS
McDougall Mill Museum
The McDougall Mill Museum is open for business once again. We encourage our regular customers and newcomers to stop by this season, as there are many changes that took effect last summer to see. Our team of workers last summer decided that the second floor needed some sprucing up, and so redid the wedding dress, children’s, and military display for the first time in about 20 years. In re-vamping the second floor, it now provides a more concise and clean environment, with more information on the artefacts. In our wedding dress display, with dresses spanning from the 1870s to the 1960s, improvements include era descriptions and fashion differences throughout the decades, and a more personal touch in having pictures hung on the dresses of the women who wore them, many of them native to Renfrew.
Even the granddaughter of Mr. O’Brien; Mrs. Margaret Ritza’s beautiful gown is on display, and photographed by the famed Yosuf Karsh. Visitors will literally feel as if they’re the bride and groom walking down the aisle while visiting this display, as the mannequins are arranged in an aisle formation, providing a more interactive experience. The Children’s display will delight many with children’s outfits from bygone days, whose time period also spans from the 1870s to 1970s. There is something for everyone to remember wearing as a child, no-matter what decade you grew up in. We’ve also added an interesting write-up on education in Renfrew, from its one roomed school house days to today. Military buffs will enjoy the newly renovated army display with our recently added uniforms from the Riel Rebellion of the 1870s to the WWI and WWII air force, army and navy uni-
forms and pins. There are many little changes that have occurred in terms of organization, and visitors have noticed that, “It’s a lot cleaner, and makes more of an impression.” This summer’s team of students plans to keep working on everyday improvements in displays, including deciding on what our feature display will be to replace last year’s Stewart family display. For those who have visited before, you’ll know that each time you come in there is something new to see, or something you haven’t noticed before, as our three floor 1855 Grist Mill is packed with historical gems not only from the Valley, but from around the world. Stay tuned for more articles on museum improvements and feature displays, as this summer our staff consists of journalism and English students who are keen to bring the community’s attention to the numerous interesting things our museum provides.

OLD COIN: Mr. G.H. Hough is the possessor of the oldest coin it has been his fortune to come across. It was one he purchased over 30 years ago from a man in Quebec. It is somewhat larger than a 25 cent piece, and not so large as a 50 cent coin. It is British, bearing the emblem of the lion and the unicorn, and close to the rim are the figures 1722, apparently the year in which it was coined. All the other figures and letters are indistinct. JUNE 6, 1935 MANAGER OF RENFREW’S FALL FAIR: Mr. James B. Easton, has been chosen as manager of Renfrew Fair by the directorate, a position once filled by Mr. D.W. Budd whose work was very satisfactory. Not since Mr. Budd served has there been a manager, and that plan is now to be tried again. About the first move of the new executive is to decide upon the holding of a lighthouse show on the first night, this to replace the usual boxing and wrestling. Instead of naming directors at random, each one so named will be asked whether he or she is willing to act. It is hoped to add Mr. W.H. Williams of Pembroke to the board.

The Renfrew Mercury - June 10, 2010
Reinhart claims OVGA match-play title STEVE NEWMAN
After losing 25 pounds during the offseason, Dwight Reinhart of the Renfrew Golf Club is the 2010 Ottawa Valley Golf Association class A match-play champion. Reinhart was 12th of 16 qualifiers, from the field of 70, during the May 31 qualifying round at the Outaouais Golf Club. He then went undefeated in four matches, June 1 and 2, to claim the title. It was a rainy opening-round match with Steve Houle of Kanata Lakes on June 1. “I didn’t play great, but well enough to breathe,” said Reinhart, 39, who regained his amateur status after serving as the Renfrew Golf Club professional from 2000 to 2003. Reinhart was one-up on the 18th tee before both hit the final green with short irons. Reinhart just missed a 15-footer, but Houle also missed with a difficult putt above the hole. Reinhart led by as much as three-up, after taking the lead for good with a four-foot birdie on the par-five third hole. For the Tuesday-afternoon match at the Rockland club, against Tom Fleming of the Highlands, Reinhart was in control much of the way. “I just went out and hit a lot of greens in regulation and forced him to make birdie,” said Reinhart of his four-andthree win. One of Reinhart’s key shots was a highly-lofted, chip-in eagle over a sand bunker on the par-five fifth. “At Renfrew you have to play that shot a lot,” said the Renfrew player. “It was a pretty comfortable match. At one point I was five-up.” TOUGH SEMI-FINAL OPPONENT It was a much more difficult semi-final match against Justin Riopelle, also of Renfrew, on Wednesday morning. Riopelle, who plays out of Mountain Creek, led by two after four holes before Reinhart rallied with birdies on the fifth and eighth. Riopelle’s birdie on No. 8 came after hitting a six-iron to within five feet. Reinhart took the lead again with a birdie on the 13th, before the pivotal 14th. Riopelle had a birdie try from 20 feet, while Reinhart’s three wood was far right, forcing him to play over and through trees to the green. Using a nine iron from 135 yards, he hit within five feet of the pin. After Riopelle missed his 20-footer, Reinhart made his putt to go two-up. Reinhart’s lead was cut to one on the 16th, but Reinhart clinched the match on the 17th. He went two-up with a four-foot birdie. “It was probably the best I played in all my matches,” said Reinhart. “Justin kind of made me step it up. He’s
FIT TO BE TIED Renfrew’s Special Olympics softball team and the Renfrew OPP locked horns on the softball diamond at Ma-Te-Way Park May 29. “Both teams left it all out on the field,” one observer said of the slugfest, which wound up in a tie. The Renfrew Millionaires presented the softball team with $1,000 to support their trip to the National Games in London July 12-18. Proceeds from this Saturday’s Sierra Classic Golf Tournament at the Dragonfly Golf Links also go to the cause. For more, see Page 23.

Wilkes’ driver wasn’t working as Reinhart went three-up by winning the third, fourth and fifth holes. However, Wilkes battled back, starting with a birdie on the sixth. The match was squared on the 15th when Wilkes birdied. “I was getting a little worried,” admitted Reinhart. But Reinhart took the lead for good when Wilkes bogeyed No. 17. On the 18th Wilkes hit a poor tee shot, reached the green in three, then conceded the match after missing his par putt. “It’s probably one of my bigger wins in a long time,” said Reinhart, who says the big difference in his game this year is his weight. “Last year, I found (leg) fatigue was a problem,” added Reinhart, a selfconfessed junk food eater. He cut down on junk-food and started working out at Ultimate Fitness, as his weight dropped from 198 to 173. The difference in his game is noticeable. “I think my game is as good as ever, and with the improved technology in equipment I’m hitting it as long as I ever have,” said Reinhart, who regularly hits 265 yards off the tee. Now the goal is to make the zone’s Willington Cup team headed to August’s Canadian amateur championship in London. Last year he was a team alternate. “I missed the cut. I played horribly,” said Reinhart. “So I want a little bit of revenge.”
Berry good run six weeks after Boston Marathon STEVE NEWMAN
Colleen Berry of Admaston-Bromley doesn’t know how many marathons she’ll run, now that she has osteo-arthritis in her hip. But she enjoyed her 11th marathon, the May 30 Ottawa Marathon, which she completed in 3 hours and 12 minutes. That time led the women’s 45-49 age category, while she was sixth masters, among female runners 40 and over. She ran a faster first half, in 1:30, including portions with Wally Dick of Eganville and Rick Ball of Orillia, on a day when the day’s various race distances attracted 15,000 participants. Ball, 44, finished in 2:57:48 to become history’s first single-leg amputee to complete the 42.195-km. marathon distance in under three hours. Dick was 44th in 2:47:45. The marathon’s elite stars were Arata Fujiwara of Japan and Merima Mohammed of Ethiopia. Fujiwara produced a course-record personal best time of 2:09:33, while the 18-year-old Ethiopian ran a personal best, by five and a half
minutes, of 2:28:19 to take the women’s title. The several Upper Ottawa Valley participants included Charlene Nolan of Renfrew with a personal best half-marathon of 2:19 and Volkert Bobeldijk, 73, of Pembroke in a marathon time of 4:02. Berry, 45, only ran her first marathon in 2006. She called that experience an epiphany because it was one of those “in the basket” events – something she wanted to do but never thought she would. Berry called this year’s Ottawa Marathon an awesome experience on the new course, after running the Boston Marathon only six weeks earlier. “If you’re going to pull off a fast time, you can’t run them that close together,” she said. She said the crowds were good and the weather was co-operative as she enjoyed the accomplishments of those around her, like single-amputee Tom McIntyre of Renfrew who ran the 10-km race. Berry, whose best marathon time is 3:02:57, plans to return to run Niagara Falls’ marathon this fall. In Niagara Falls, she was second female in 2007 and fifth female in 2009.

OPP steps up to the plate
The Renfrew Detachment of the OPP, complete with a line-up of veterans and new recruits, answered the challenge of Renfrew Special Olympics Provincial Championship Softball team May 29 at Ma-Te-Way Park. Before this exciting slugfest, long-time supporter of Special Olympics, the Renfrew Millionaires represented by Norm Bujold, donated $1,000 towards the fundraising efforts to send the team to the national championships. “On behalf of the Renfrew Millionaires, it is a privilege to sponsor such a fine group of athletes. Your enthusiasm and sportsmanship is an inspiration to us all,” Bujold stated. Bujold was recognized for his personal support of all Special Olympians and gratitude was expressed to his teammates on the Millionaires. Over the past 15 years their generous donations have helped fund many Special Olympics events and contributed toward the costs of uniforms and equipment. Bujold also paid tribute to the efforts of the many volunteers who make this program so successful. He made special mention of Frank Belanger’s 30 years of coaching, not just softball, but many other Special Olympics sports, and his life-long commitment of help-
ing provide recreation and sports competition for athletes with a mental disability. For his efforts, Belanger was made an honourary member of the Renfrew Millionaires. From the opening pitch, the intensity was obvious. Both groups of Renfrew’s finest displayed remarkable skills and determination. The hotly contested see-saw battle featured many lead changes and sparkling defensive plays which had fans on the edge of their seats. Despite the fact that the umpire clearly wore an OPP uniform under his vest, the match ended in a tie. This annual event was a prelude to the June 9 Law Enforcement Torch Run. The Torch Run has taken place for the last 21 years and is Special Olympics` greatest fundraiser, having raised millions of dollars worldwide. This Saturday, June 12, the Sierra Classic Golf Tournament is being held at the Dragonfly Golf Links to raise the funds to send the softball team to the National Games in London July 12-18. Belanger said the monumental task of raising $15,000 is certainly achievable coming from a community as generous as Renfrew. If you wish to help support the team, or take part, contact Darlene Heaslip at 613-4322578 or Frank Belanger at 613-432-2441.

Keith McDonald stands with retirement guide dog Jasper, left, and Murphy, his guide dog today.
Keith McDonald was on hand to participate in his 14th Walk for Guide Dogs at Andrew Hayden Park in Ottawa May 30. This year, he had a new companion by his side. For the first time since he was acquired by McDonald last November, Murphy made the five-kilometre stroll for Canadian Guide Dogs based in Manotick, taking over from Jasper. “This is my third dog,” McDonald said. Arthritis forced Jasper to step aside in retirement last fall. Neither McDonald nor wife Lynnda will soon forget Que, McDonald’s first guide dog. Que also participated in a number of Walk for Guide Dogs with McDonald.
“It’s Murphy’s first tour, and we raised $4,093,” McDonald said of this year’s walk. “The overall amount raised was over $32,000.” APPRECIATES SUPPORT “Once again, I’d like to thank the community for their support,” voiced McDonald. “Special thanks to Sandy (Gombik) of Precious Pets for donating all money raised from the nail clippings throughout the month of May; the staff and management at No Frills and Wal-Mart, and the WalMart greeters for helping me every day getting in and out; and Roy Briscoe again this year, for getting to the stores around town.” McDonald was joined in the walk by son-inlaw Todd and daughter Kristie Lynch and grandchildren Lindsay and Mason.

Central gets Fuel for Kids PETER CLARK
Driver Dave Connelly and the Schneiders Racing Team are gearing up for another year in Ontario’s No. 1 stockcar series; the Lucas Oil Sportsman Cup. This is Connelly’s 11th year with Schneiders as his primary sponsor. His is also back with the Fuel for Kids program, now into its fifth year. “We are continuing our Fuel for Kids program with Metro and you’ll see the Schneiders machine at Metro stores all over Ontario this spring. All the money raised goes back to a local school in your neighbourhood,” the White Lake driver pointed out. Connelly and a Schneiders team member were at Central Public School with Mercury photo by Peter Clark Connelly’s 500-hp stockcar No. 82 and Dave Connelly signs autographs while a line-up of students admires car 82 at Central their 48-foot race hauler May 18.

Connelly also thrilled his young audience by performing a few donuts on the pavement at the back of the school before his departure. He later met the public at a fundraising barbecue at Renfrew Metro. Connelly said Fuel for Kids and been an enjoyable and worthwhile experience. “We’ve hit the $100,000 mark, and that’s good,” he said of funds raised for schools. “We started (this year) in St. Catharines in the spring. We’ve been on the road five days a week since, raising money,” Connelly said. “We are up to $13,000 this year, but the best part is reaching 100-grand.” Among some of the stops Connelly will be making in the next few weeks are schools and Metro stores in North Bay, Sudbury, Huntsville, Owen Sound and Collingwood.

Reunions are champs in ladies hoops league ROB WARREN Ladies Spring Basketball League
Both semi-final games in ladies basketball were hotly contested with numerous momentum swings and, after 46 games, only Ray’s Flowers and the Reunions remained in contention for the 2010 championship. The Reunions opened up a 16-7 advantage on Aikenhead’s, only to see it dwindle to 16-14 by the half. Aikenhead’s went ahead early in the second half and managed to keep the lead until the Reunion firepower became too much in the last few minutes. Mae Donohue and Stacey Hill led the Reunions to a 37-31 victory. Sheila Windle was the game’s high scorer, notching 16 points. Defending champion MidTown Flooring found the range to lead Ray’s 8-4 early in the other contest. Turnovers, however, proved costly and Mid-Town trailed 1712 at half time. Neither offence was especially sharp in the sec-
ond half, but Mid-Town had a slight edge and took a 22-19 lead. Amy Felhaber saved the day for Ray’s with two treys, enough for Ray’s to overtake Mid-Town 26-25. Kelsey Jessup was the game’s high scorer, with 10 points in a losing cause.

CHAMPIONSHIP FINAL The Reunions held a slight edge over Ray’s, riding a 10-4 margin to a 13-11 halftime advantage. Ray’s kept it close (2219), but couldn’t quite catch the Reunions. With five minutes left Ray’s had to change tactics. The experienced Reunion squad handled the pressure well and pulled away for a 33-22 victory. The Reunions were superior from the foul line, scoring on seven of 11 attempts versus two of 12 attempts for Ray’s. None of the 14 players who scored in the contest hit double figures. The win for the Reunions represents the fourth different champion in the last four years.

Wednesday, July 14, 2010, at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish, 18 Dochart Street, Braeside at 7:00 p.m.
You are invited to attend one or both of these sessions. The Township of McNab/Braeside has prepared a new draft Comprehensive Zoning By-Law for the Township under section 34 of the Planning Act to regulate the use of all lands, buildings and structures, within the entire Township of McNab/Braeside. The new Zoning By-law will replace the existing Comprehensive Zoning By-law (that was passed in 1999 by By-Law 99-18) and it may alter the zoning provisions currently applicable to your property, buildings or structures. A Zoning By-Law divides lands within a municipality into various zones (for example, residential, commercial, industrial) and sets out provisions for development within those zones such as uses that are permitted and building setbacks from property lines. These zones are delineated and labeled on a map. A Zoning By-Law also contains general provisions on development in all zones. The new draft Comprehensive Zoning By-Law also implements the Township’s new Official Plan that was approved in 2009. Since the draft Comprehensive Zoning By-Law affects lands throughout the entire Township, a key map or description of the affected lands have not been provided. The new draft Comprehensive Zoning By-Law can be viewed at the Township of McNab/Braeside Municipal Office during regular office hours or can be viewed on the Township’s website www.mcnabbraeside.com. You can check the zoning provisions that apply to your property and any other zone provisions. At the public meeting, if a person or public body does not make oral submissions or make written submissions to the Township of McNab/Braeside before the by-law is passed by the Township: • the person or public body is not entitled to appeal the decision of the Township of McNab/Braeside to the Ontario Municipal Board; and • the person or public body may not be added as a party to the hearing of an appeal before the Ontario Municipal Board unless, in the opinion of the Board, there are reasonable grounds to do so.
OPENING TOURNAMENT We had our first ladies 18-hole tournament of the season on June 5. This was a gross tournament which was sponsored by Money Concepts. Results were as follows: • A Flight: Gross: 1st Cindy Lacroix 82; 2nd Anne MacNeil 82, 3rd Lisa Smith 83, 4th Anne Windle 88. • B Flight: Mary Peer 89, Kim Vandewouw 99, Vi Rossy 100. • C Flight: Lee Sharpe 102, Barb Moogk 107. Don’t forget to sign up for our next 18-hole tournament which will be held Saturday, June 19. As well, the Match Play schedule is now set, so please check the board in the ladies locker room. See you on the course!

Seed Growers award grants to 4-H and CHEO So far this year, the Ottawa Valley Seed Growers Association has awarded close to $100,000 to Eastern Ontario 4-H activities, both as prize money and as program funding. After the 2010 Farm Show, $2,800 was awarded in 4-H project prize money; $1,500 went to the Regional 4-H show at the Metcalfe Fair; and $200 to each of the 4-H clubs in 11 eastern counties for general development. Each county with a field crops club will get an extra $250. Teen farmer competitions at two fairs will receive $300 each, and the 4-H component at this
year’s Central Canada Exhibition will get $750. Returns from the annual Prestigious Pedigreed Seed sale held at the farm show have been topped up for a $5,000 contribution to the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario, bringing the total raised over the past several years to $90,000. “We consider it part of our mandate to support these organizations which do so much for the agricultural community,” says OVSGA president Jim Arbuckle. “We see it as particularly important to help the young 4H participants who we hope will be following in our footprints.”

The Renfrew Mercury - June 10, 2010
Bankau to Luckenwalde In part two of this feature, Renfrew resident Jack Dougherty remembers his time as a prisoner of war STEVE NEWMAN firstname.lastname@example.org
Before being sent to prisonerof-war camp at Bankau, the most easterly of Germany’s prisonerof-war camps, Jack Dougherty was interrogated. “They threatened us with a big dog, but I knew he (the interrogator) wasn’t getting anything out of me, and he didn’t,” says Dougherty. By July 1944 he was in Bankau, where Dougherty said life wasn’t all that bad, especially with the Red Cross packages sent to the soldiers every two weeks. Typically, the prisoners received a half-package every two weeks. Depending on whether it was British or American, the package included some of the following: a tin of powdered milk, one tin of corn beef, one tin of spam, cheese, one tin of salmon, a tin of orange juice, butter, biscuits, soap, two chocolate bars and 50 to 100 cigarettes. “Cigarettes were the money,” says Dougherty, a non-smoker who used his cigarettes to barter for other goods. But as the war went on, the Red Cross packages arrived less often, as the soldiers continued to lose weight. By war’s end, Dougherty’s 175-pound frame was down to 125. That wasn’t the case yet, but prisoner-of-war experiences worsened, starting with the twoand-a-half week winter march of 1,100 soldiers en route to a camp in Luckenwalde after the Russians started closing in on the area. In chilling temperatures as cold as -25C, Dougherty estimates dozens of prisoners died. As the march continued, rations dwindled to 40 soda biscuits per day per soldier. Even requests to local children for the milk from local cows failed, as the German children told them the milk wasn’t for American soldiers. Ironically, the soldiers were Canadian. THE DIARY Meanwhile, Dougherty kept up his diary, A Wartime Log for British Prisoners, which he kept hidden from the Germans. Creating the diary helped provide some sanity. He wasn’t interested, like many of the soldiers, in playing cards. So he says the journal was a way “to take my mind off the war, and to try to continue to keep my brain active, if I ever did get out of there and go back to school.” Its contents were tidily, if
not impeccably, recorded. They included the addresses of fellow soldiers, several pages of French-English translations, a list of the dozens of books read from the camp’s library, French verb conjugations, physics notes, a few recipes, math formulas, diary notes, and a drawing of his bedless-room at Bankau that measured about seven- by 10-feet for up to 10 men. The diary also contained famed German boxer Max Schmeling’s autograph, received during a goodwill tour of Luckenwalde in May 1945. Luckenwalde, however, was the much worse of his two POW camps. Closer to 12,000 prisoners were in the lice-infested, unheated barracks where they eventually had to burn their clothes. By late winter half the camp had dysentery. “Everybody was hungry and there were no (Red Cross) parcels. We were just living on the minimal amount of food,” recalls Dougherty, noting the daily ration was about 650 grams, which included black bread, seaweed soup, occasional barley soup or porridge, and, on one occasion, horse meat. “I tell you, it was pretty rough,” he says. And the camp got worse once the Russians arrived in late April 1945, shortly before war’s end. The first-line Russian soldiers treated the prisoners just fine. But that wasn’t the case for the recruited second-line Russians, says Dougherty. “They took all our food supply and we had to scrounge for food.” Following the war, Dougherty maintained contact with some soldiers, although he’s the last surviving member of his Halifax bomber that was shot down in June 1944. He has also kept abreast of war time, as a voracious reader of war history. His post-war career started with Westclock in Peterborough as an industrial engineer. He continued working, in Renfrew with RCA until it closed in the mid ‘70s. He and wife Margaret, who were married in 1950, have raised five children − Robert of Renfrew, Eric of Castleford, Donna of Ottawa, and Arnprior residents Laurie and Nancy. Since the war, Dougherty has returned to Europe to visit warrelated sites several times. • Jack Dougherty has been a member of the Royal Canadian Legion for 67 years. He is also a chartered member of the Air Force Association of Canada’s Renfrew wing.

Agnes ‘Chip’ Troke turned 100 years old June 10. It’s a pretty impressive number, but nothing compared to the lady behind the landmark. Last Friday afternoon she graciously welcomed guests into her home; guests bearing certificates of honour and recognition. Renfrew Victoria Hospital CEO Randy Penney, board foundation director Barb Desilets and Ladies’ Auxiliary representative Fran Bonner honoured her long-time service to the auxiliary. But it was Mrs. Troke who was equally grateful, for the auxiliary. “My life would be altogether different if its weren’t for the auxiliary,” she told the intimate gathering. “I’ve definitely gotten more out of it than I’ve ever given.” Although her eyesight and hearing has decreased over time, she continues to attend monthly auxiliary meetings and participate with the help of former auxiliary president Janet Osborne. “I get enough to get by on,” she explained. Mrs. Troke has always been a very active member, and for many years she managed the auxiliary’s nearly-new Boutique Victoria. She was also instru-
mental in Boxing Day visiting, whereby members would visit hospital patients and deliver gifts of jewellery and homemade candy. “The hospital auxiliary was behind me 100 per cent,” Mrs. Troke said. “They were always a wonderful group.” In a demonstration of her compelling spirit of gratitude, she took her birthday gathering as an opportunity to credit guest Barb Symington for keeping the auxiliary alive in Renfrew. To this day, she is remembered for those holiday visits. On the verge of hitting the century mark, her joie de vivre was inspiring. “There’s such a thing as living and existing. I’ll be darned if I’m going to just exist,” she says. Mrs. Troke, who taught physical fitness and yoga in the past, still walks 12 blocks a day, with assistance. She recalled, with a laugh, taking courses in Ottawa and then returning to Renfrew to share her new-found skills. “I was just one jump ahead,” she laughed. “It was a successful class, oh my God, it was good.” She also played bridge up to three years ago, and still plays Scrabble to keep her mind sharp. When she stopped doing crossword puzzles she set upon learning all of the United States capi-
tals, the 50 countries of Europe, the alphabet backwards, and the Greek alphabet. After raising her family, Mrs. Troke worked until she was 80 and then travelled, including three trips to Europe. Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MPP John Yakabuski was also on hand to present a certificate from the Government of Ontario, as well as one recognizing her 63 years of service with the RVH Auxiliary. Mrs. Troke recalled the first time she met the MP at a United Church barbecue, and sitting beside CEO Penney at his first auxiliary annual meeting and the joke they shared. The recollections showcased the sharp mind and memory she treasures. “My memory is very special to me,” she said. During Friday’s gathering certificates of birthday congratulation were also presented from the Lieutenant Governor of Ontario and MP Cheryl Gallant. On this afternoon of laughter and memory, Mrs. Troke was also reflective. “I’ve enjoyed every minute of my life,” she said, advising people that they get out of life what they put into it. It’s all about attitude and gratitude. As she explained, “I don’t have problems, only challenges.”

Rotary Club of Renfrew grateful for Matthew Ferry ‘supercharge’ JUDITH GILCHRIST Renfrew Rotary Club
The Rotary Club of Renfrew had the privilege of hosting one of the world’s top transformational coaches and speakers during Supercharge Your Life! The event was held Monday, April 26, with funds raised going to the Bonnechere Manor Auditorium Campaign. We wish to extend our sincere thank you to the sponsors and the participants of the event where we raised over $2,000 to support the Manor’s goal of an auditorium for the residents and family of the Home. The Renfrew Industrial Commission was our major sponsor, commenting that they were thrilled to be involved in bringing a significant speaker to our community. The Rotary Club of Ren-
frew thanks them, and also extends our warm and heartfelt thanks to myFM Radio, The Renfrew Mercury, Money Concepts, Tim Hortons, Times Fiber Canada, CATS – Capital Audio Technical Services, Scapa, Purposeful Life, Rebecca Nolan and Tubman Marketing and Dennis Yakaback of Century 21 Eady Realty. Special thanks to the AFAC Wing where we held the event. Ferry provided an excellent event for the participants. He was a bit on the wild side, fun, and sometimes in your face about what is holding you back. He used a multi-disciplinary approach that can help just about any one succeed by removing unconscious blocks to success and tapping into your internal power source to make the impossible possible.
Some of the comments that participants made: • “The experience was very meaningful. Working on much of this in my life and the workshop was validation for me.” • “Self-analysis is always important. Thank you for your inspiration.” • “Entertaining, meaningful, and the ‘real life’ examples worked well. Wish it had been longer.” • “Matthew is charismatic. He speaks with people not just to them.” The vocational service committee of the Rotary Club of Renfrew is proud to contribute to the vocational needs of our community. Members of the Committee are chair Judith Gilchrist, Andrew Ritchie, Celine Richard, Kent Tubman, Kim Ryan, Lorne McDonald, Marg Tubman, and Bonnechere Manor representative Robyn Arseneau.
Organizers of spring’s visit by motivational speaker Matthew Ferry has ‘supercharged’ the community.

The Renfrew Mercury - June 10, 2010
After the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, will our birds recover and return?
The oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is going to have devastating consequences for our birds when they migrate south to their winter range in the southern United States, Central and South America this fall. The area around the gulf is a stopover area for birds and many millions will fall prey to the sludge and will not survive. It is therefore very important that we keep records of the birds we have nesting in and around our homes this spring and summer. Please make an extra effort to make notes with dates and numbers. Next spring and summer we will again have to make every effort to keep records of the birds that return to our area. The following year will be a key year because we will then know if the birds are on their way to recovering by comparing the counts from previous years. It may take several seasons before there is any indication of a population increase. We will be requesting
your information in the coming years so we can report the results. NORWAY LAKE BIRDS Hello from Norway Lake. We had a pleasant surprise Friday morning as we sat out having our morning coffee and two majestic swans glided past and settled down out front. Last month we had a Rose-breasted Grosbeak, Purple Finches and Goldfinches, Tree Swallows, Baltimore Orioles and Eastern Kingbirds. The Osprey nest down the lake is in use again this year as always. Don and Ursula Strachan NORTHERN FLICKER Marg Crozier described the key field marks of a Northern
TURKEY EGGS Hi Jim and Ila: I was walking through the bush behind our place Tuesday and all of a sudden a Wild Turkey hen came flying up out of the tall grass about four feet in front of me. She came straight up and then flew off down the trail. Nearly gave me a heart attack. It occurred to me that she may have been sitting on a nest. Sure enough, the nest had eight eggs in it. I’m going to check periodically as a matter of interest and to follow the progress. Hopefully we’ll see some chicks soon. Cam Sauve, Eganville
Leona Lacourse has a family of House Wrens nesting in one of her bluebirds boxes. The wrens finally fledged and the bluebirds have decided to move in. We suggested that she remove the wren nest because it filled the box up to the entrance. This would have allowed a raccoon to reach in and take the eggs or young as the nesting progressed. Mary Turcotte has a female bluebird that will not stay at home in a nest box at the Turcotte home. She insists on disturbing a family of tree swallows nesting in a bird box near the creek. Because the swallows are secure in box they will very likely keep the bluebirds out until their brood fledges. The bluebird may move it when the swallows leave. AMERICAN REDSTART Pat Leighton has a family of American Redstarts nesting
near her home on Gillan Road. Redstarts are wood warblers and are great mosquito hunters. The best field marks are the black body with orange-red patches on the wings, tail and a white lower belly. They will often fan their wings and tail to flush insects from the vegetation. COMMON LOONS The Common Loon has returned to Canadian lakes for another nesting season. With more than 80 per cent of the world’s Common Loon population breeding in our country, Canadians have a critical role to play in conserving loons. Each year, hundreds of volunteers participate in the Canadian Lakes Loon Survey, to monitor, protect, and conserve loons on lakes across Canada. Enjoy your birding.

A Barry’s Bay man was fined a total of $1,600 for ice fishing with unattended set lines on two separate occasions. Edward Recoskie pleaded guilty to two charges of fishing with set lines and was fined $800 on each conviction. He also received a three-year suspension of his fishing privileges. Court heard that Ministry of Natural Resources conservation officers apprehended Recoskie Jan. 15, 2010 and again on Jan. 21 as he was checking his set lines on area lakes.

SCENE FROM THE HAWK’S EYE
Flicker in an email to us this week: a red patch at the back of the head, a broad black necklace, a long bill, black bars on the back and wings and about the size of a grackle. This species is a member of the woodpecker family and is most often seen feeding on ants and grubs on lawns and fields.

In lieu of rent, Community Living is painting the bleachers at the fairgrounds for the Agricultural Society, a win-win situation for both organizations. “We are happy to be able to accommodate the Community Living residents by giving them an opportunity to have fun and be active at the same time,” says Agricultural Society manager Judy Dobec.

Local farmers say this is one of the driest springs they can remember MAYNARD VAN DER GALIEN RURAL ROUTES ground for six weeks. Farmers say it’s the driest spring they can remember. The cold and windy weather in the latter part of April and in early May did considerable damage to plants. The cold mornings froze alfalfa plants and set the hay fields back. Hay fields looked so good earlier this spring. Now they are on the short side. That didn’t stop dairy farmers from taking off their first cut as haylage or silage bales at the usual time of the year. I saw some were at it during the last days of May and many were har-
vesting hay last week. I hear the moisture content is much lower than usual – from the bone-dry weather. The OMAFRA crop report for east-central Ontario (Lindsay area) says some of the alfalfa yields look tough, lack vigor and growth. Frost, dry weather, disease carried over from last year has reduced alfalfa growth. Hay is short in the Trenton area. Yields are average to slightly below average in the Kemptville area. Quality is excellent. When hay is short from a lack of moisture it’s usually higher in protein and vitamins. Long, fast growing hay yields more bulk but has lower protein and vitamins. OMAFRA crop specialist Scott Banks says farmers in Renfrew,
Leeds, Grenville and Carleton are seeing lighter than expected hay yields. Hay is expected to be low in fibre and high in protein. Soybeans should all be planted by now. Soybean planting was 90 per cent complete by the end of May. It’s the last crop being

planted. Soybean acres are up everywhere as corn prices are still too low to make a profit. The input costs of growing soybeans are much lower making it an attractive crop this year. Putting in the crop has been completed; haying has started! 390470
My May rainfall was 36 mm. The showers fell in small amounts; 11 mm was most that fell in one day. To the east of us they didn’t fare out any better. Ottawa had 34 mm for the month. Seventyfive is the normal. To the west of us at Kawartha Lakes (east of Lindsay) it was a much different story. Seventysix mm of rainfall was recorded during the first 25 days of May. There wasn’t much to add up in April in our area. I set my rain gauge up at the beginning of the month. Only two rainfalls – 31 mm and 9 mm. That means we only had 76 mm (three inches) during April and May. Some areas had even less rainfall. There are seeded fields that haven’t germinated after being in the

The Renfrew Mercury - June 10, 2010
Watch out for wildlife
The Pembroke District Office of the Ministry of Natural Resources asks motorists to be extra cautious on roads at this time of year when wildlife is on the move. Turtles are particularly vulnerable on our roads at this time of year when the females are looking for nesting sites. Many animals such as moose, elk and deer are particularly active in the spring, especially at dawn and dusk. And remember, deer rarely travel alone, so if you see one there are likely more nearby. Drivers who see animals along the road should slow down and sound their horns in a series of short bursts. At night, motorists should blink their headlights to warn the animals and give them a chance to move out of the way. Motorists should take extra care where
Slow-moving turtles like this snapper, are particularly vulnerable on our roadways at this time of year as the mature females search for nesting sites. roads cross creeks or rivers, in wooded corridors, or where field edges run perpendicular to the road. They should also be cautious where fences meet roads and where wildlife crossing signs are posted.
