WHITE LAKE MAN DIES IN CRASH A White Lake man, known for his dedication to his young family and community, was killed last Friday when his car veered off Waba Road. Jarrett Dorzek, 28, died at the scene of the crash, which occurred about 9:45 a.m. Dorzek is the father of two young sons, Cayden and Owen, and wife Kelsey Eades is expecting their third child. Lanark OPP report they were notified Friday morning that a vehicle had left Waba Road between Waba and Pakenham in Mississippi Mills. The route has numerous curves, especially after it pulls out of the farmland southwest of Pakenham. It was reported that Dorzek, who was alone in the vehicle, was returning from a trip to town to get groceries. Members of the Lanark County Detachment are investigating with the assistance of East Region Technical Traffic Collision officers to try to determine why Dorzek’s vehicle left the road. Anyone with any information should call Lanark OPP Staff Sergeant Derek Needham at 613-267-2626, ext. 4411. Dorzek helped his father run his business, Phil Dorzek Automotive, in Arnprior.

Renfrew’s municipal day care centre will officially close its doors July 16. The centre was to remain open until Sept. 3, but council has been unable to secure administrative services until that time. Renfrew councillor Bill Ringrose made the announcement at council’s June 28 regular session. Ringrose explained that council is required by provincial law to have a qualified supervisor to oversee the program and has been unable to find a replacement for the previous administrator who has retired. “We cannot meet our original intention,” said Ringrose, adding that council is left with no option but to close at the end of the day July 16. He also apologized to parents for the short notice. Reeve Audrey Green, a long-time proponent of the municipal day care service, praised the staff for its dedicated service over the years. She said the town can take great pride in the “large, large number of children that have gone through our day care centre.” “We’re sorry, but we’ve done the best we can,” the reeve said. Faced with skyrocketing costs, Renfrew voted earlier this year to close the program. A report to council on personnel issues such as severances will be addressed at council’s next meeting.

Guyea running for another term on Renfrew council STEVE NEWMAN

Guyea says he brings experience, loyalty, availability and dependability. steve.newman@metroland.com Ask me to do something and I’ll do it,” says He’s 68, but still energetic about the prospects of Guyea, who wants to help make Renfrew a better serving for another term on Renfrew town council. place to live for his grandchildren and others. Bill Guyea recently filed his nomination papers, thus becoming the second local candidate to vie for a position on council. After about 11 years as a town councillor, 20 years as a volunteer firefighter, and working 40 years at Haley Industries, Guyea says he still has lots of energy and ideas to contribute. “It’s very time-consuming, but I like helping out,” says Guyea. He’s not one to laze about. He recalls finishing his last day on a Friday night in 2002 and starting a part-time job with Renfrew County Bus Lines the next Monday morning. As a school bus driver, he loves the connection with the kids, but he also loves the connection with council. “There are a lot of things on the go,” he comments. “We have our recreation master plan, and there are things in there with a mandate from the people … I can give of myself. I enjoy the work. I enjoy the people and we have great department heads who are very helpful.” He says the residents of Renfrew “want a pool, for sure, and a second ice pad, and we have to decide what to do with the present recreation building downtown.” It’s costly to run the recreation building, so if the facility is abandoned in favour of concentrating activities at Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre, Guyea says council should play a role to find alternative homes for some present users. Alternative sites might include local schools, the AFAC Wing and the Royal Canadian Legion, he suggests Council has no shortage of activities and prospective projects, adds Guyea, pointing out that he’d like to see something positive develop from the vacant former shopping centre property that previously housed such businesses as Liquidation World and Wal-Mart. Guyea was a council member when elected in 1994, 2000 and 2003, but he has also remained active on town committees when not elected to council. He didn’t start this term on council, but as the candidate with the next highest number of votes, he was appointed following Tanya Brunet’s resignation to pursue law studies. Whether councillor or not, he has worked nine years as local coordinator of the town’s Pitch-in Week campaign. As he says, he’d like to see a town that continues to be clean, affordable and friendly.

BIA to review zoning proposal with eye to protecting downtown core LUCY HASS lucy.hass@metroland.com

Senior planner Charles Cheesman is the new acting director for the County of Renfrew’s department of development and property. He was recently in Renfrew for a public meeting on the town’s Official Plan reveiw. Cheesman assumed the position June 1, following Jim Hutton’s recent promotion as chief administrative officer. Hutton has succeeded the retired Norm Lemke, who worked for the County of Renfrew for 29 years. Cheesman, the county’s manager of planning, has worked with the county since 1988.

Loss of commercial zoning in Renfrew’s downtown core was one of a handful of concerns to arise at a public meeting on the town’s new draft comprehensive zoning bylaw. Twenty-six people were named on a meeting sign-in sheet, representing properties from one end of the town to the other. At the June 3 public meeting, Renfrew BIA chairman Lisa Vincent said the group doesn’t want growth limited in the downtown core. Renfrew County acting director of development and property Charles Cheesman

said proposed changes were made to some properties, reverting them back to residential zoning because that is the historical and current use. But minutes of the meeting say “it has been made clear from other property owners that they have future plans that would require a commercial zoning.” As a result of the discussion, Vincent agreed that the BIA could compare current rezoning with proposed changes and report to council by the end of June. Cheesman was also questioned about the consequences if zoning in the new bylaw does not correspond with an existing commercial use.

He explained such uses are grandfathered and can continue, but if that use were to expand in the future, a minor variance would be required from the town. Aside from Cheesman and fellow county official Anne McVean, the meeting was also attended by Mayor Sandi Heins, Councillors Gail Cole, Bill Ringrose and Kate Windle, and town staff director of development and works Mike Asselin, clerk Kim Bulmer and town planner Julie Stewart McAdoo. The new zoning bylaw will replace the existing one that was adopted in 1990. An open house on the zoning bylaw was held May 27.

Renfrew’s electronic waste depot becomes permanent fixture at landfill site lucy.hass@metroland.com

The diversion of electronic waste from the Renfrew landfill site is so successful, it will continue beyond its original pilot project timeline. Renfrew will sign an agreement with Ontario Electronic Stewardship (OES) to continue with a full-scale electronic waste collection program. The pilot program began in February 2010 and since that time 19,400 kilograms of electronic waste was collected in eight 20-yard roll-off bins. From a treasury perspective, the diversion of that waste defers the substantial cost of closing a landfill that has hit capacity. The pilot collection program was at no cost to the municipality and all cost of container rental, transportation of waste and disposal of waste was borne by OES.

The local program has meanwhile evolved for the better. The electronic waste no longer has to be sorted, pelletized and shrink-wrapped by municipal staff before being transported to an OES disposal facility. OES will pay Renfrew $150 per tonne for electronic waste collected at the landfill site. People are urged to destroy their hard drives to protect their personal information. Electronic waste accepted at the site is extensive, from desktop and portable computers to mice, monitors and keyboards. Printers, telephones, cellular devices and home entertainment such as VCRs and CD players. For the full list, visit the Town of Renfrew website. GYMNASTICS OFFERED AGAIN Renfrew will enter into an agreement with the Ontario Trillium Foundation for a $20,500 grant for its gymnastics program.

Of that amount, $15,600 is allocated for safety gymnastics equipment and $4,900 to cover the cost of training, small equipment and other supplies. The equipment includes a ballet bar, mat wedges, a senior trestle set that works into a balance beam, a trapezoid, large wedge mat and incline mat. In April 2009 the Renfrew Gymnastics Club ceased operation, leaving a gap in services for young people, specifically girls in the area of gymnastics and dance. The town began operating a gymnastics program in the fall/winter of 2009/2010. The first 12-week session ran Jan. 20 to April 7 with 35 participants paying $100 each. A short spring session attracted 17 participants who paid $55 each. The recreation department also received support from the Renfrew Wrestling Association for the $8,900 cost of new gym mats.

CANTEEN PROPOSALS OPEN Proposals are being accepted for operation of the canteen at the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre. There has been a roller coaster of net revenues in recent years: $10,508 in 2004, $6,172 in 2005, $15,503 in 2006, $19,692 in 2007, 9,067 in 2008, all the way

down to $1,456 in 2009. The drop is attributed to higher food costs, limited hours of operation, smaller crowds at events and the rising cost of staffing the canteen. A report by director of parks and recreation Kelley WhitmanMcKie said a review of canteen operations in similar arenas showed various methods of operation, from contracting out to elimination of the manager’s position with those job responsibilities assumed by the facility manager. Renfrew has opted to request proposals for operation of the canteen service for one year, with a provision of two additional years. The town would still face about $2,200 in ongoing expenses, such as electricity (estimated at $1,500 for the canteen area) and repairs. The recreation department hopes to have someone in place for the September start of the ice season.

“The net result is that the recreation department will now have close to $30,500 worth of upgraded equipment – at no direct cost to the taxpayer,” director of parks and recreation Kelley Whitman-McKie said in a June 25 report to council. A two-week summer gymnastics camp is planned, and a full gymnastics program will be offered again this fall. “We have trained one instructor and we have two others working on the training and have a goal that the program will be able to be transferred over to a group or new club within a few years,” WhitmanMcKie told council.

Twenty years of operating surplus at Victoria Hospital Renfrew Victoria Hospital ended the year with an operating surplus for the 20th consecutive year. That was one of the highlights of the hospital’s June 24 annual meeting. Steve Dregas of MacKillican and Associates presented a detailed report on the hospital’s audited statements for the year ending March 31, 2010. During the two-hour annual meeting Catherine O’Neil was chosen to continue as chair. Other officers are vice-chair Andy Boldt, secretary RVH president and CEO Randy Penney and treasurer Bill Welsh. The governance committee is comprised of ex-officio members O’Neil, Boldt, Penney, Welsh and Chief of Staff Dr. John Collins, joined by directors Dave Lesaux, Kent Tubman and Barb Westgarth. Boldt, Sandi Heins, Richard Lester and Barb Westgarth were appointed to the board of directors for a three-year term, effective June 24, 2010. The hospital board now breaks for the summer and will reconvene in the fall.

Guyea’s in the race

From Page 2

That included the George Jackson Toyota issue, which resulted in the Renfrew business buying property in Horton Township to expand its cramped in-town quarters. While that project didn’t go Renfrew’s way, Guyea says: “I think this present council, myself included, did everything possible that we could (for them). We did things over and above, but apparently it was not enough to keep the business in town.” His toughest decision as a councillor, he says, was deciding to close the Renfrew daycare. At the same time, Guyea says services can’t run on big deficits year after year. To date, those who have filed their papers to run for council are Bill Ringrose and Callum Scott for mayor, Jim Miller and Guyea as councillors, and Kate Windle for reeve.

Heart broken by events in Canada

anada was only three years old when the Renfrew Mercury was born. The day passed largely unnoticed last month when this newspaper marked its 140th anniversary. But the truly observant may have noticed that our front page banner quietly shifted from Issue 52 back to Issue 1. Year 140. Despite the naysayers who claim newspapers are on the decline, the cold, hard facts tell a different story. While daily papers have taken a hit, the readership of small-town community newspapers remains strong. And with our recent transition to give all of our readers the news for free, we are fulfilling our moral mandate to keep the community informed better than ever. The community’s support of this paper is reflected in many ways, not the least being letters to the editor. This edition is a prime example, with conversation on everything from human rights to property rights. Let’s keep the conversation going. This paper was founded on the strength of fearless open debate. We love letters.

LETTER

Gallant’s Communicator disturbing and disrespectful

To the editor: Since retiring to the Laurentian Valley, I have been reading “The Communicator” from Cheryl Gallant, MP of the Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke riding, but found the Spring 2010 issue particularly disturbing. As one of many ex-Torontonians living in this riding, I found the Toronto references insulting especially the innuendos to elitism and wealth. According to the GTA’s Children’s Aid Associations’ 2005 data, 32 per cent of Toronto’s children live below the poverty line, hardly a privileged picture. Yet historically Toronto taxpayers have helped support the needier areas across Ontario and Canada . Ms. Gallant’s repeated references to the ‘Liberal and Socialist/Separatist Coalition’ are misleading. There has been no coalition! We have a functioning minority government because of the cooperation of the other three parties.

Who are the ‘Socialists’ and ‘Separatists’? The other full-status parliament parties are the New Democratic Party and the Bloc Quebecois. By using labels instead of the official names, Ms. Gallant is not only disrespectful but imposes her personal bias on her constituents at the taxpayers’ expense. There were many glaring omissions to her report such as any reference to child poverty. According to CPAN, one in eight children in Renfrew County live in poverty. The child poverty rate in Pembroke is 26.6 per cent, far more alarming than the special tax on electronics that worries Ms. Gallant. Universal, affordable child daycare would be a step towards relieving child poverty, and free up parental earnings for adequate food, clothing and housing. Military families often have one par-

ent away for six months at a time, creating a critical need for child care. The Conservative universal child care credit of $100 a month for each child under six would not have covered my child care costs in 1975 and does little to relieve child poverty. Also omitted were women’s issues such as violence against women, health, equality and social justice. In addition, we are fast approaching the world environmental tipping point, when it will be to late to undo the damage we’ve done, yet Ms. Gallant did not outline any of the Conservative Party’s green initiatives. Stimulating ‘green industries’ can protect the environment, create new jobs and thus help fight poverty. It’s not 1954, Ms. Gallant. I know. I was there. Concerned constituent, H. Carroll-Donnelly Laurentian Valley

To the editor: It’s Canada Day, just watched the fireworks, they were wonderful but you know I could not sing the anthem. It was weird, I usually try to be the loudest and always have to wipe a tear away afterwards. I love this country and I think that is why my heart is broken; broken over the recent events that unfolded during the G20 last weekend. I don’t know how many of you have been glued to facebook, youtube and/or twitter, as I have been, watching in disbelief as our rights as Canadians to assemble and speak freely were stolen from us. Secretly, I might add. There are reports that our fellow countrymen/women and even children as young as 15 were held in cages without food, water, basic toiletries that were withheld from them. They were not allowed the right we used to have to a phone call. Imagine being the parent of the 15-year-old that was missing overnight. Some of them were on their way home from work, or a date, journalists were punched and arrested. People walking the streets of their city – it didn’t used to be against the law. I wept as I watched images of the country I love become a police state. All I could think of was my family members who fought in WWI and WWII, as most of you can say the same. Thinking of all the lives lost because our ancestors believed in democracy and did not want to see their descendants grow up in a country without a constitution, a constitution that included the right to assemble and the right to free speech. Even though I believe that police cars were set on fire as decoys, you won’t hear any police bashing from me, I read of quite a few officers who were deeply affected by having to carry out the orders they were given. I am sure that that is not what they had in mind when joining the police force. It must have been truly difficult to have to carry out acts against humanity to the people they swore to serve and protect. This is their country too, their rights and those of their families have been taken away as much as ours. I just got a flyer from Cheryl Gallant in my mail yesterday. She states how she can be reached, and she says she would love to hear from us. I beg you all to do just that, let’s make sure this country stays a place we will be proud to pass on to our children as our parents and grandparents, after everything they went through, were.

LETTER

Overcome the righteous and pious who try to tell us how to live our lives To the editor: This letter is in response to Rev. Rose Leclaire’s, which I have just finished reading for the fifth time. In her letter (in the June 24 edition of the Mercury), the dear Reverend seems to be making an awful lot of assumptions with very little hard evidence. The Pink Day she referred to is indeed to protest bullying and violence toward other students including homosexuals. The RCI student who “came out” and is working to stop bullying of ALL students, including (and perhaps highlighting) homosexuals is indeed a brave and promising individual. One hopes that he can help us overcome all the righteous and pious individuals trying to tell us how to live our lives. In regards to the email the dear Reverend received entitled “Who is Teaching Our Children Sex Education?” I don’t really think anyone is, and that is a huge problem. If the Ontario government wasn’t so easily bought/scared off, they would not have scrapped the new sex education curriculum that was slated to be brought out in the 2010-11 school year. With that proposed curriculum, we would have had a much more aware and tolerant crop of

individuals growing up. I also think that the age of consent being raised from 14 to 16 is an excellent idea. However, the problem is not with the choice of age, but with the amount of information that is NOT being given to students. If there was more information delivered in a more frank and open manner to more students, there would be less instances of intolerance, sexually-transmitted diseases and unplanned pregnancies. Education is what will enlighten and empower all of us. By the way, Planned Parenthood is not some malicious group whose ulterior motives are to “murder” as many babies as they can. There are always options when one is pregnant, and it is up to the individual to make informed decisions based on all information and their current situation. Very few people’s lives have been destroyed by having an abortion (except maybe those who have been berated and ostracized by pious and righteous individuals who think that their way is the only way). Most go on to lead perfectly normal and healthy lives. If there is guilt on their conscience, then they weren’t given the right information to make

the best decision for them. They are also not told to have random and indiscriminate sex before or after their abortions, but offered many different options of birth control, including abstinence. I read the dear Reverend’s article, as many of you have. I have not “had some sort of sexual abuse.” Nor have a great many of my family and friends. However, there are people in my personal sphere who have been sexually assaulted in some way, and they are dealing as best they can with it. None of them are confused, had identity crises leading to unpopular sexual orientation, have learning disabilities, nor are angry, guilty, promiscuous or addicted to anything that would kill the pain, as the dear Reverend leads us to believe. This was a sweeping statement that is not based on fact, but on misinformation and fear. Those people who do have problems or difficulties related to their abuse are not diseased, as the dear Reverend stated, but hurting and disturbed (rightfully so, through no fault of their own) and in need of counselling which is fairly easily accessible. Homosexual tendencies are not brought on by sexual abuse. True, some people turn away from the gender that abused

them, but so what? Who are they hurting by making that choice? As for the people who have known for most of their lives that they prefer the “wrong” gender – so what? Who are they hurting by behaving in a way that is, to them, natural? The only point in the dear Reverend’s article we agree on is that sex is not for children. But what exactly is a license for sex, and as an adult without one, why should I bother to get one? If the dear Reverend is referring to marriage, and is trying to tell us that it is the only time people should have sex, then we are in complete and utter disagreement again. Sex is a wonderful experience, when it’s done properly, and why should we limit such a beautiful, natural act to married men and women? Two consenting and mature individuals of a like mind with an understanding of the possible consequences of their actions seems to be a pretty good guideline to me. Some people mature faster than others, this is a fact. Do I believe that a 16-year-old

is capable of dealing with the serious consequences that can go hand in hand with sex? In some cases, yes. If that individual is intelligent and mature enough to choose a worthy and caring partner, use protection such as the pill and a condom, then be willing to deal with a possible pregnancy or STD after the fact, then yes. There are some 25-year-olds that don’t have that same sense. Age isn’t really a factor here, when you get right down to it. My country is a quietly proud one, and I am damned proud to be born Canadian. I live my life free and to the fullest, as I would hope most others do. I have not been robbed of anything, nothing important anyway, and I strongly believe it’s up to Canadians, not someone’s “God” to keep our land glorious and free. Only when we all stand together, regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation or gender will we all be truly healed. THAT is the truth people need to hear. Angela Field Renfrew

LETTER

Landowners: Protect yourself with land grant patents To the editor: A recent media report has brought to light something called ‘land grant patents’. These documents are instrumental in protecting landowners against the unlawful infringement on their ability to own, use and profit from their private property. The land grant patents are vital in the fight to control overzealous governments and their agencies for two basic reasons. The first is that they spell out in very specific terms what those rights include, and secondly it makes those rights eternal. For those of you who don’t like the monarchy, I would suggest that in this instance at least, it has done us all an unparalleled service. During the reign of Queen Victoria, land grants where issued to immigrants to what was then Upper Canada (modern day Ontario). During the 1820s and 1830s, settlers were given the rights to the timber, the water on and in the land, and the minerals that may lie within the borders of the granted land. These rights were granted to the original settler, his heirs, or to any assignors to whom the land was sold, forever. In other words, the rights stay with the property, irrespective of who holds the title. There where exceptions the crown would impose in some cases, but for the most part the land was given without reservation. Any reservations are noted on the grant, and if they are not explicitly spelled out, then no such reserve exists. The vast majority of land in Ontario is in fact ‘granted land’ with a patent attached. There are modern day examples of cases in law and provincial legislation, where land grant patents are cited and used to defend property rights. Here is a relevant paragraph from an article out of the Midland Free Press, May 2000. “ … The first major test case of the Crown’s ownership of shoreline property was decided almost 30 years ago. In 1970, Mr. Justice Stark of the Supreme Court of Ontario, held in the trial of Walker et al v. the Attorney General (Ontario) that where one of the boundaries of the land granted by a Crown patent is to be a boundary of water, then that boundary is at the water’s edge unless the grant reserves in clear and definite words a space between the lands granted and the water boundary. Thus, Walker owned his property to the water’s edge of Lake Erie in the Township of Bertie, near Fort Erie. “The Crown appealed to the Court of Appeal for Ontario and lost, then appealed further to the Supreme Court of Canada, again without success. Thus, the trial judgement was affirmed by the Court of Appeal for Ontario in 1972 and by the Supreme Court of Canada in 1974 ...”

For more information, contact Back in 2004 the city of Toronto was looking for a new landfill a representative from your local and the Adams mine site near landowner groups. Jack Kelly Elliot Lake was given considAdmaston-Bromley eration.

Ottawa River still without Canadian heritage status Support needed of local MP and federal environment minister, say river heritage committee members STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com

Despite a distinctive cultural history, the Ottawa River continues to hold the curious distinction of not being a Canadian heritage river. In June 2009, the Canadian heritage designation seemed a breath away, following the signature by then Ontario Minister of Natural Resources Donna Cansfield and the signed nomination papers for heritage status by federal Environment Minister John Baird. These signatures had followed the April 17, 2009 approval of the nomination by the Canadian Heritage Rivers System board. All that was needed to complete the deal was the signature of new Environment Minister Jim Prentice during his scheduled appearance at a Parks Canada conference in June 2009. However, Prentice didn’t appear, and the deal remains incomplete, without Prentice’s signature. About eight years into the local project, Renfrew County’s most famous river remains without the Canadian heritage status, and without a trademark many Renfrew County councillors believe would boost regional tourism tremendously In a carefully-worded presentation June 29 to Renfrew County council, Ottawa River heritage committee members Fred Blackstein and chairman Larry Graham came to ask for council’s support and to offer solutions and suggestions. Without using the name of local Conservative MP Cheryl Gallant, both committee members suggested the designation won’t happen without her support. It is also known this project was the brainchild of former, local Liberal MP Len Hopkins. Last year, Gallant expressed her concerns about how the designation would

negatively impact people’s property. Not so, insist members of county council, county staff and the Ottawa River heritage committee. Committee members say much time in the past years of pursuing the designation have been taken up refuting serious misconceptions about heritage designations. Owners on the Ottawa River would lose certain property rights, it was said. False, says chair Graham. Heritage status would result in reduced speed limits on the river, it was said. False, says Graham. In a large eight-page, full-colour publication entitled A Guide to Establishing a Canadian Heritage River, the Canadian Heritage Rivers System (CHRS) talks about honouring and respecting its “leading rivers by distinguishing them as Canadian Heritage Rivers – places of great pride and importance to Canada.” In the same document, CHRS says any such designations hold “no legislative authority.” Several of the 30-some rivers holding this prestigious status include the Rideau Waterway, and the Humber, Mattawa, French, Athabasca, Arctic Red, Thames, North-Saskatchewan, Upper Restigouche and Yukon rivers. Speaking of the Ottawa River that famous explorer Samuel de Champlain travelled about 400 years ago, committee chair Graham said: “Arguably it is the greatest river in this county, if not in this country.” Whatever it takes, Graham and Blackstein say they would like to see the river heritage designation occur while the committee’s honorary chair, local aboriginal elder William Commanda is still alive. He was 90 when the project for river status began. As Graham said, “We’d like to see it completed in his lifetime.” The real hold-up, appears to be the lack of Gallant’s sign-off. “It’s within her scope to make this happen,” said Graham. The same day (June 29) county council unanimously approved a resolution, to be sent to Prime Minister Stephen Harper with a brief covering letter, asking for immediate approval of the designation documents, “thereby allowing the Ottawa River to be recognized as the great and historic river that it truly is.” That resolution was moved by RayeAnne Briscoe of Admaston-Bromley and seconded by Bob Sweet of Petawawa. The same resolution says the river has “represented a vital waterway for our first Nations communities and … played an integral role in many of the key events constituting Canada’s history.” This is the second such letter written to the prime minister. Another was written in 2008 that appeared to result in Minister Baird signing nomination papers for the Ottawa River’s Canadian heritage status.

Don’t fix unbroken licensing system STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com

The Ontario government appears ready to start up a series of Crown corporations to manage and market timber rights on Crown land. And that has Jeff Muzzi, the County of Renfrew manager of forestry services, more than a bit concerned about the local ramifications. The government’s proposal would alter how timber cutting rights are allocated on Crown land. At present the current tenure system consists of about 47 sustainable forestry licences (SFLs) for those cutting rights, including one for the local holder, Ottawa Valley Forest Inc. Ottawa Valley Forest’s SFL is shared by a near dozen shareholders, among them the county’s three largest sawmills of Ben Hokum & Sons, Murray Brothers and Herb Shaw & Sons. In neighbouring counties, the sustainable logging licence holders are Mazinaw-Lanark and Bancroft-Minden, which have larger collections of licence shareholders. The new system could result in the

creation of five to 15 new management units in Ontario that manage and market Crown logging rights. The new move could create great uncertainty for local logging, says Muzzi. He argues the Ontario government wants “to look like they’re reacting to the crisis in forestry, and unfortunately they’re not looking at the implications.” At the same time, he suggests the new approach may help improve matters in some parts of the province, possibly in northwestern Ontario, but not within Renfrew County. The proposal is being spearheaded by the Ontario Ministry of Northern Development, Mines and Forestry, which inherited the Ministry of Natural Resources’ forestry division about a year ago. Furthermore, Muzzi says the information sessions arranged at different locations in the province are just that. What was and is needed is consultation sessions, says Muzzi, especially since he says the management-unit system operating in and around Renfrew County is working just fine. See MINISTRY’S, Page 17

Home, not always so sweet

Part three of the four-part series Situation Critical explores seniors’ concerns about the care they receive in long-term care homes, and a representative example of those who experience exemplary care. THIRD IN A FOUR-PART SERIES

By Rob O’Flanagan When a visitor pounds on the metal door of his no-frills, $550 a month apartment, George LeLievre slowly, painfully answers. That he is able to unlock the heavy door and swing it open with enough energy to flash an inviting smile and offer a “Please, come in,” is a remarkable feat, given the number of complex medical conditions that reside, or have resided, in this frail 67-year-old man’s body, and considering the number of times the tough Hamilton senior has walked a tightrope around the mouth of his grave. A broken back, five hernias, tuberculosis, colitis, lymphoma, at least two heart attacks and coma — LeLievre’s scar tissue draws a map of a tough life lived hard, of a body ravaged by manual labour, tobacco and drink. One of 17 children born to Pearl LeLievre and her husband George Sr., of Kirkland Lake, LeLievre is a living, laboriously breathing anomaly: He walked out of a long-term care home and returned to life in the community. Ministry of Health and Long Term Care statistics from 2009 show just 11.6 per cent of residents across the province were discharged to a private home. The average stay for more than 75,000 frail elderly in 625 provincially supported nursing homes is three years. During LeLievre’s year and a half in Victoria Gardens Long-Term Care, the sound-of-mind senior said he was witness to a situation that was as much detention centre as home, where residents were left in wheelchairs in front of televisions morning to night, and where, he said, the recently deceased were left in their beds for hours in plain view of visitors. LeLievre said he was provided a bare minimum of medical care and personal attention, despite his serious needs. “Seven-thirty in the morning they give me my medication,” said LeLievre, sitting at the kitchen table of his sparsely furnished flat, pictures of his large family on the walls, a cigarette burning in his bony fingers. “Then at noon, I get my medication. And four o’clock, I would get medication. And that’s all they done for me.” Ranka Stipancic, administrator of Victoria Gardens, on Victoria Avenue North, defended the level of care at the home. While she wouldn’t speak to LeLievre’s case specifically, citing privacy regulations, she said the home has been caring for residents with high-intensity medical needs for years, and that the province has a special program that helps defray

the costs of that care. Current Ministry of Health records (from May) show Victoria Gardens performed better than the provincial average on inspections over the last four years. Stipancic said round-the-clock registered-nursing care and staffing levels are adequate to meet the care requirements of residents. LeLievre’s view of his time at the government-licensed home in the Landsdale neighbourhood reflects concerns expressed by patients, families and elder advocates during research for Situation Critical, Metroland’s special report on long-term care. While Ontario’s most urgent problem is that tens of thousands of its most medically needy, fragile seniors are stuck, sometimes for years, on unbudging wait lists for a nursing-home bed, barriers to care can also arise once a senior secures a place in long-term care. Years of understaffing and pressure from the influx of increasingly older residents with more complex medical and personal needs leave staff gasping to cope with the demands. The average age of residents at admission is 80, and about 73 per cent have Alzheimer’s or other dementia. It can be overwhelming for front line personal support workers just to meet the daily living needs of the majority of residents, leaving those more able to fend for themselves. A skeletal figure with sunken cheeks and large, animated eyes, LeLievre said he often had to change his own colostomy bag in the nursing home despite chronic back problems. He continues to battle cancer and heart disease. “When I needed help to change my colostomy bag, I’d say, ‘Can I get some help to do that?’ They’d say, ‘With you in a minute.’ Then it was, ‘Oh, it’s my smoke break.’ Or it was, ‘Oh, dinner hour, can’t do it now.’ I wind up changing it myself.” Stipancic, the home administrator, said some residents choose to change their own colostomy bags. For those who are physically and cognitively capable, “the staff will provide teaching in order for the residents to maintain their independence.” Personal support workers assist those who need help with the procedure, she added. LeLievre said the dead were neglected during his stay. When a roommate passed away, the deceased man was left in his bed for hours. “There’s no courtesy there to pull the drape around him,” he said. “He lay in that bed all night until maybe 11 o’clock in the morning … That’s not the only one I seen, I seen many of them go that way.” Stipancic said when a resident dies in a long-term care facility, a physician is notified to come to pronounce death. Every tenth death is investigated by a coroner. “We can’t move the body until either the physician or the coroner have been here,” she explained, adding the body is

always screened with privacy curtains as part of postdeath care. An end stage of the health care system, long-term care is generally acknowledged as the place where those who need 24-hour personal and medical assistance go to live out their last days. Despite the large number of people residing in homes, those who study long-term care say it remains largely an out-of-sight, out-of-mind sector. “I think long-term care has been marginalized from mainstream health care,” said Kevin Brazil, a professor in McMaster University’s department of clinical epidemiology and biostatistics, an expert in long-term care and care of the dying. “It has been sort of bracketed and pushed aside.” Implicit ageism and a “sanitized culture” that distances itself from the realities of death and dying contribute to the marginalization, he added. A Residents Bill of Rights (included in the health ministry’s Long-Term Care Act) has long been in place to protect those living in long-term care settings, and a new and expanded version of the bill, containing more than 25 rights, will be in place this summer. But those rights — the right to be properly clothed and groomed, to privacy, to participate fully in care decisions, to engage in activities good for mind and body, and provision for family and residents’ councils through which complaints can be made — are widely overlooked and often violated in homes across Ontario, advocates for the elderly say. Homes post the Bill of Rights for residents and families to see, but there is pervasive fear of repercussions for complaining. “There are a few things about long-term care that are barriers to the enforcement of any standards or any rights,” said Natalie Mehra, director, Ontario Health Coalition, “and one is that residents are afraid of repercussions for complaining, the same as their families.”

First-hand accounts of the conditions and quality of nursing homes cover the exemplary as well as the questionable. A 2009 survey by the Ontario Health Quality Council found 60 per cent of families rated the care of their loved ones in nursing homes as good. Wendy Renault, whose mother, Janet, 86, lives in Willowgrove Long Term Care Residence in Ancaster (operated by Chartwell Seniors Housing REIT), is a representative case. She said her mother trusts the workers, smiles at them, hugs them and holds their hands. “I figure that’s the best testament to the care she gets here,” the daughter said. Chartwell officials spoke of the absolute need for empathy and compassion in long-term care. “Most of the people that work in this field are here because this is really what they want to do,” said Linda Schertzberg, Willowgrove administrator. “You have to be a strong individual, because we deal with death. They are here for eight hours a day with intense one-on-one with the people they are working with. So they become close to the residents.” Administrators in long-term care homes plead lack of funding and staff as a root cause in cases when care is less than optimal. “I don’t want to cry about money,” said Pat Morden, chief executive coach of Hamilton’s Shalom Village, a progressive home with a good reputation. “But it is pathetic what we get, and it’s not enough to do what you (the public) want us to do and what we want to do.” The Ontario government is currently overseeing a review of funding, but there is no indication yet of what steps — if any — come next.

NOTICE OF APPLICATION AND HEARING FOR AN ELECTRICITY DISTRIBUTION RATE CHANGE Renfrew Hydro Inc.

EB-2009-0146

Renfrew Hydro Inc. ("Renfrew") filed a cost of service application with the Ontario Energy Board (the "Board") on May 28, 2010, under section 78 of the Ontario Energy Board Act, 1998, S.O. 1998, c.15 (Schedule B), seeking approval for changes to the rates that Renfrew charges for electricity distribution, to be effective May 1, 2010. The Board has assigned the application File No. EB-2009-0146. The Board's decision on this application may have an effect on all of Renfrew's customers. Any change to Renfrew's distribution rates will cause Renfrew's delivery charges to change. Delivery charges are one of four regular items on residential and general service customers' electric bills and vary depending on the amount of electricity consumed. Renfrew indicates that if the application is approved as filed, Residential customers consuming 800 kWh per month would experience an increase of approximately 9.5% in their current delivery charges. This is a $2.65 per month increase on their total bill. General Service customers consuming 2,000 kWh per month and having a monthly demand of less than 50 kW would experience an increase of approximately 15.8% in their current delivery charges. This is a $8.93 per month increase on their total bill. This change to the delivery component of the bill is separate from other potential changes to electricity bills, which could include changes to the "electricity" component charges, changes to transmission charges and changes to other charges included on the bill. This application deals only with the potential change in the delivery component of the bill that may result from changes in the delivery rates.

United Way supports mental health, diabetes Renfrew County United Way has announced a series of grants to organizations. Among those were the Mental Health Illness Program and Camp Banting. Community Mental Health Services gets $1,500 to help facilitate delivery of an education program in Renfrew County high schools. This program teaches students about mental illness and improves their awareness of the stigma, prejudice and discrimination faced by people living with mental illness. The Talking About Mental Illness program addresses the issues of mental illness and the challenges people with mental illness face daily due in part to the lack of community understanding about their illness. The grant will support the costs of training, supporting and remunerating the people living with mental illness who are making the classroom presentations in each of Renfrew County nine secondary schools. • Activities Program for Bonnechere Valley Area Youth: $10,000 to the Bonnechere Valley Youth Activity Centre in Eganville to increase after-school programming and activities for at-risk youth aged 12-18, as well as underserved youth groups, in the Bonnechere Valley rural area. The funds will provide opportunities for youth to develop new skills and knowledge through workshops, sports activities and trips. Currently, about 15-20 youth per night from Bonnechere Valley, Cobden and the Algonquins of Pikwakanagan are served. The programs offered by the Youth Activity Centre are also critical in promoting health and fitness among youth. We are happy to play a role in directing the required resources into this worthwhile endeavour and to demonstrate to youth that they are important members of our communities.” Camp Banting, a Canadian Diabetes Association program for children with Type 1 diabetes, receives $1,500 to help sponsor a unique experience for eastern Ontario children ages eight to 15 hat combines outdoor activities with education and training in the successful management of their disease. RCUW is a long-time supporter of Camp Banting, which has served eastern Ontario children since 1953. Between 1996 and 2009, RCUW has provided over $14,000 to help children from Renfrew County participate in the camp.

CHIPPING IN FOR THE FOOD BANK

ICE CREAM FOR HOSPICE

Celebrating five years at her chip stand, Tami’s Taters owner Tami Campbell held her fifth annual donation day in support of the Renfrew and District Food Bank. Anyone who dropped off money or a food bank items received a small order of french fries. Young Corson Scobie obviously enjoys the box of chips he received. Also in photo from left are Debi Virtue of the food bank, Jasmine Scobie, Tami Campbell and Lindsay Scobie. The promotion raised $110 and a car load of groceries for the food bank.

Helen McGregor, left, Hospice Renfrew administration assistant, receives a cheque for $1,500 from Centreside Dairy general manager Melanie Tracey. The funds were raised through its own June 1 birthday party celebrations. McGregor expressed her appreciation on behalf of Hospice Renfrew. “We want to do this every year,” Tracey said. “Hopefully it will be even better next year. It’s the least we can do.”

RENFREW COUNTY

Dangerous plant new to region STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com

You don’t want to tangle with this member of the carrot and parsley family. Giant hogweed is its name and it is now an official, unwanted Renfrew County resident. Seven times last year the County of Renfrew received calls about potential sightings of giant hogweed. All were false alarms. But of two such calls June 28 last week, one was accurate. The first call resulted in the discovery of cow parsnip; the second of giant hogweed, says County of Renfrew trails and forestry manager Jeff Muzzi. He wouldn’t disclose its exact location, but said staff has been on site to kill the plant and, more importantly, to ensure flowerheads were bagged and prevented from spreading. Giant hogweed is a nasty plant that is now firmly established in much of southern Ontario. “It’s a public health issue,” explained Muzzi. “It can permanently blind you or cause blisters. It can alter the DNA of your skin permanently.” Giant hogweed, which originated in Asia, can grow up to 20 feet in height, with leaves up to five feet in width. It generally prefers damp, rich soils, as This giant hogweed plant stands tall be- found along roadside ditches, or in other hind County of Renfrew forestry and trail moist areas.

Fire guts home on Castleford Road STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com.

GOING TO THE BARN DANCE TONIGHT

399148

Kieran Donohue isn’t three until August, but he was ready to do his part to make the Douglas Barn Dance a success. The annual event took place at Culls’ just outside of Douglas June 26 and a donation was made to the Bonnechere Manor Auditorium Campaign and the Renfrew Victoria Hospital Healing Garden.

Doug Campbell sat on the lawn next to his mailbox watching the smoke envelope his house at 338 Castleford Road. A few minutes earlier flames forked out the roof, while smoke billowed above and through the bungalow, as firefighters from McNab and Horton townships continued to hose down the structure. It was 4:20 p.m., while less than an hour earlier he was sitting in the TV room when it all began. “I heard a pop. My cats ran to the back door, and there was white smoke coming in from the garage,” said Campbell, 61. He called 9-1-1, at which time the operator asked him to take another look in the garage. The smoke had turned black, and it was time to leave. “I’m assuming I’ve lost my two cats and my turtle,” said Campbell. “I guess I’ve lost the damn house,” he adds, almost without emotion. He’s lived in the area for decades, including more than 30 years at Haley Station. But the last few years haven’t been too kind to him.

McNab and Horton township firefighters are on the scene to put out the Tuesday-afternoon fire at 338 Castleford Road. The house was gutted. His wife, Karen (nee Gavinski) died in 2006, the same year he twice underwent open-heart surgery. Unable to work since, he lived alone at the Castleford residence since 2008 after his sister, Judy Campbell, the former owner, died in 2007. She was married to former Horton fire chief Dave Campbell. “I guess I’ve lost everything I own,” said Doug Campbell, who notes he’s a fourth generation

Campbell resident of Horton Township. Campbell, who has two adultage daughters, says he had fire insurance. “I guess we’ll fine out how well (I’m insured) tomorrow (Wednesday),” he added. Deputy-chief Alan Cole spoke for the Horton Fire Department in the absence of Fire Chief Randy Corbin. The breezeway between the double-garage and the house served to vent the flames quickly, said Cole. “When we got here it (the fire) was contained and it had not vented, but we couldn’t get the garage door open. Once it vented, the fire went right across the attic space,” explained Cole. On site were two tankers, two pumpers, two ambulances, a command unit, several police cars, and numerous neighbours. They included Earl Newberry, who says his brother, Bob, built the home probably in the 1970s. About 20 firefighters, from the McNab and Horton departments, were on the scene. Mississippi Mills firefighter, Dave Gleeson, who was working in the area, was also on the scene. He ended up donning Horton equipment to fight the fire.

Ministry’s proposal Giant hogweed

From Page 9

From Page 14

What’s proposed, says Muzzi, could result in forestry licences being offered to companies in foreign countries, or companies that don’t have a region’s best interests at heart. Secondly, he says the new proposed system could result in increased uncertainty for local firms, who can’t guarantee banks the new system will result in a guaranteed wood supply. “Our tenure system isn’t broken,” insisted Muzzi. “When all the mills were closing up north, we kept working. “We already have the local management and representation, and those people have invested in the community as shareholders.” Also, he says Renfrew County officials were told by Northern Development, Mines and Forestry Minister Michael Gravelle, at the 2010 Ontario Good Roads Association conference, that their tenure system is working just fine. Muzzi attended that meeting with county councillor John Hildebrandt of Madawaska Valley. At an early-June information session in Pembroke hosted by the Ontario Ministry of Northern Development, Mines and Forestry, Muzzi says there was unanimous opposition to the proposal. Several county councillors have also expressed their opposition to the process. So where from here? “Wait and see,” says Muzzi, who hopes his own letter to the ministry meets with some positive reaction. That letter is to include a request for a detailed analysis of the proposal’s impact on the local forest industry.

If the sap from a broken stem or crushed leaf, root, flower or seed comes into contact with damp skin (perspiration will suffice) and the skin is exposed to sunlight, severe burns, blistering and painful sores may result. ANTIDOTE The only known antidote to contact with the sap is immediate, thorough washing with soap and water. Once irritation begins, seek medical advice. Certain features distinguish giant hogweed from similar-looking plants. First and foremost is its size – it truly is giant. Stems are often one to three inches in diameter, and marked with dark purplish blotches or spots and covered with sturdy bristles. The flowers form a flat-topped, umbrellashaped head up to two and a half feet wide. Cutting the plant off with line trimmers can be very dangerous, as the rotating line can spray the sap a considerable distance An effective procedure for controlling giant hogweed is to cut off the flowering heads, and seal them inside plastic bags and leave them in the sun (at least one week) until all seeds are killed.

A group of us try to make an annual trip to the baseball stadium in Ottawa to catch at least one game. There was the Ottawa Lynx of the International Baseball League and, more recently, the Ottawa Rapidz in the Can-Am Baseball League. Now the Ottawa Fat Cats of the Intercounty League are in town, but chances of taking in a game are becoming slim. Their first (and hopefully not last) season runs out in a couple of weeks. The Fat Cats sit in eighth place in a nine-team league, a half-game better than the Hamilton Thunderbirds. If they can hang on to eighth, Ottawa will qualify for the playoffs. The Fat Cats end the home portion of the regular schedule with a doubleheader versus Hamilton this Sunday at 1 p.m. Ottawa has to feel reasonably good about its chances. Hamilton just lost a game 30-0 to the Mississauga Twins. However, the Thunderbirds bounced back to surprise the Twins 4-3 the following day. Ottawa’s playoff fate could very well come down to Sunday’s two home games. The Fat Cats have played better ball of late, having won three of their past four games. They better defeat Hamilton twice on Sunday.

PETER CLARK PETER’S PUTTERINGS HOPE springs eternal: Renfrew will have at least one team in this Saturday’s 28th HOPE beach volleyball tournament at Mooney’s Bay in Ottawa. It’s the largest one-day outdoor beach volleyball tournament in the world. The Renfrew Pizzeria team consists of Amber Buelow, Adam Buelow, A.J. McLaughlin, Jonathon Brazeau, Tasha Latendresse and Justin Thurston. The local squad got on a good roll in last year’s HOPE event. They won four games before rain washed out the rest of the tournament. * * * The three Los Angeles Dodgers to share 1981 World Series honours were third baseman Ron Cey, outfielder Pedro Guerrero and catcher Steve Yeager. And for this week: What one-time relief pitcher during the early days of the Montreal Expos came in from the bullpen, and threw one pitch which resulted in a triple play, to preserve a win over the San Diego Padres?

Emotional garden dedication ceremony STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com

Earl Bennett’s love of students, flowers and country may resonate for some time at Our Lady of Fatima Catholic High School. The Renfrew councillor and veteran school teacher died in January 2007, but reminder of his passion for country and kids won’t disappear any time soon, especially for those who attended the dedication ceremony for the Earl Bennett Memorial Garden. The June 24 ceremony took place in front of the Renfrew elementary school, where students and staff were joined by community invitees, including Catholic Women’s League members and the Knights of Columbus colour guard. The touching Thursday-morning ceremony was conducted beside the memorial garden, which circles the base of the flag pole. The site is no coincidence, for Bennett was a fervent patriot known for his support of Canadian flag day and of the importance of knowing Canadian history, including the names of every prime minister. One tribute came from former teacher Mona Mahusky. She said all his students knew all the prime ministers and plenty more about Canadian history. “He was just a proud, proud Canadian,” she said. Other tributes included one from educator Carol Sulpher, who said Bennett was a great teacher, a great tease and one who brought Timbits to class for every student’s birthday. “So it’s great to have this celebration in his honour today,” she concluded. Bennett believed in the power

of Catholic education and citizenship, “so it is only fitting that we honour his faith, spirit and dedication to the school,” said ceremony emcee and school principal Jeannie Armstrong. In a prayer of blessing, Father Brady McNamara asked that the garden serve as a reminder of Bennett’s goodness and contribution to the community and become a place of prayer, peace and reflection. ‘EMBRACING OF LIFE’ “What a great tribute to a man who was so embracing of life,” said Mayor Sandi Heins. “He embraced students, friends and (other) members of the community.” Referring to his passion for flag day, Heins called the site of the garden a fitting tribute. “May this garden be a special garden that grows with a beauty and inspiration that he so graciously gave to the school,” she said of Bennett, a teacher for more than 25 years at Our Lady of Fatima. He was also a town councillor from 1997 to 2007. He retired from full-time teaching in 2002, but continued to supply-teach. It was a day of mixed emotions, admitted his wife, Norma, who attended the ceremony. “It was a tough day because it was emotional, but I’m very touched with what they did. “Earl really loved flowers,” she said of the garden whose flowers are everlasting spirits, bleeding hearts and geraniums. Only after the garden was completed, did the school staff learn that geraniums were his favourite. Naturally enough, the ceremony included a singing of the national anthem.

He was a stray who was brought to the shelter. Bruno loves tummy rubs, is fully housebroken and has good manners. He knows some basic obedience commands, but is sometimes too stubborn to obey them. He is a large, strong dog who requires a home with lots of space, preferably with a fenced yard. An owner with large breed experience would be ideal. Bruno enjoys going for walks, but does need more leash training. He is good with some other dogs as long as they are calm and well behaved. He may be too intrusive for most cats. Bruno would be best suited with older children as he can get a little carried away when playing, he does not realize his own size. # 3708 Bodi This adorable little pooch will make a wonderful companion. Bodi is a two-year-old, neutered Lhasa Apso/Poodle mix who was found abandoned at the shelter. He was in terrible shape and had been badly neglected. After several baths and a new haircut, Bodi is now looking for his forever home. He can be quite affectionate once he knows you and is an energetic little dog who enjoys daily walks. He gets along well with small submissive female dogs but has issues with other males. He is good with cats. Bodi would be best suited in an adult-only home and will require regular grooming to prevent matting. Bodi is housebroken and doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to be an excessive barker. Supplies the shelter needs: bleach, paper towels, Whiskas meaty selections dry cat food and treats for dogs.

Groves Park Lodge held its annual Walk ‘n Roll Athon for the Alzheimer Society of Ottawa and Renfrew County May 26. Because of the intense heat on that Thursday afternoon, the outdoor portion of the walk was kept to a minimum. Rita Havey and volunteer Dolly McDonald are all smiles during the walk. The event raised $1,000.

What if you downsized to Domicile? Why empty nesters are choosing a vibrant urban life

Like any other significant stage of life, seeing your children leave home can be an emotional challenge. Imagine transforming that challenge into an exciting opportunity with the city’s best entertainment, dining, and recreation at your fingertips, ready to fill a new chapter. What would life be like?

You would reinvent your calendar. In the summer, you have beautiful, manicured parks just steps from your door. During the winter, you know that the night’s snowfall will be cleared for you by morning. Someone else oversees your home’s upkeep, from the insulated roof to the heated underground parking garage, while you follow your interests—wherever they lead. Welcome to Domicile—Ottawa’s most respected builder. For over 35 years Domicile has been focused on distinguished urban homes conceived for distinguished urban living. Invest yourself in the pursuits that stir your soul. Donate time to a beloved charity. Learn to play an instrument or speak a new language. Pursue a professional goal that you once set aside to raise your children. When your home takes care of itself, you can take care of all your cravings.

Your kids would beg to visit. Whether you’ve invited old friends for a lively soirée, or your kids are planning a trip home, spoil them with the food prepared in your contemporary kitchen, the personality of your well-crafted living space, and the unique neighbourhood outside your door just waiting to be discovered. Wherever you make your home, Domicile’s expertly designed buildings will set you apart as an exceptional host. Hold a party on the rooftop terrace of one3one, overlooking Ottawa’s hip Wellington West. Invite friends to spend a leisurely weekend in the guest suite of The Glebe’s Second Avenue West, a feature unique to Ottawa condominium buildings. Celebrate a milestone by treating your family to a mouthwatering dinner in Ottawa’s Little Italy, just steps from The Radcliffe. Three state-of-the-art boutique buildings. Three reasons to simply love playing host.

from your memory and make them part of your everyday reality—and part of your backyard. Domicile homes are carefully located to accommodate your passions, from fitness to fine dining, live theatre to lingering evenings over a table for two. All of it is waiting for you. All of it is closer than you ever imagined. Choose to explore. Choose to reinvent. Choose to make a Domicile building your new nest, and make the next chapter of your life the most exciting one yet.

You would rekindle old love affairs. Remember the joy of an afternoon browsing one-of-a-kind shops? Or of hanging on a symphony’s last note, moments before thunderous applause? Or bicycling down a quiet, leafy pathway next to the canal? Mine these pleasures

Bumper crop of strawberries, raspberries and more at McGregor’s Produce SHERRY HAAIMA shaaima@msn.com

Family-owned McGregor’s Produce is a business with a long, solid history but that hasn’t stopped the owners from continually adapting and improving the operation to ensure its continued success. There’s a bumper crop of strawberries this year and a bumper crop of raspberries expected soon, says Jim McGregor, who now runs the more than 30year-old business with sons Ian and Cameron and other family members. Strawberries are ready at the Lochwinnoch farm, for purchase or to pick your own. Several area stands are also selling berries. Strawberries did start growing about two weeks earlier than normal, but a Mother’s Day frost froze the early blooms. With cooler and drier weather, the berries are ready about the usual time. The farm includes 15 to 18 acres of producing strawberries. Other main crops include sweet corn, yellow and green beans and tomatoes. Some innovative changes have been made to the tomato operation, said McGregor at a press event/employee party in June. “This is what we’re most excited about,” he said, indicating the to-

mato patch. The McGregors are using raised beds, black plastic mulch and a drip irrigation system for an optimum crop. The raspberry operation is gaining steam, too. “Raspberries are a relatively new crop for us,” said McGregor. The family grows three kinds of July raspberries – Prelude, Boyne and Nova. “We think we’re going to have raspberries around the first of July – two weeks early,” said McGregor. The bushes only produce every second year, so the planting schedule is kept in mind at all times. Then there’s a fall raspberry that should be producing by late August until early October. The strawberry schedule, with the help of Day Neural Strawberries that differ from the Junebearing ones, is designed to have berries available as long as possible. “We will have strawberries in August and likely September,” he said. New this year is asparagus, a plant that takes two to three years to start producing enough for the business, explained McGregor. McGregor’s employs about 30 people in total, including 10 workers from Jamaica and 15 students who help operate the

farm, seven roadside stands and five farmers market stalls. The family members are heavily involved in the operation, which pleases McGregor.

“I’m working every day with my two sons, so I’m really enjoying that. It’s a great opportunity. And I’m probably seeing more of my grandchildren than

I would,” he said. For updated picking conditions, call the Berry Hotline at 613-432-9726 or visit www.mcgregorsproduce.com.

With Admaston-Bromley’s annual Canada Day celebrations. bearing the unofficial theme of Canada Shines, it was also time for the township’s colours to shine. On the occasion of Canada’s 143rd birthday, Mayor Raye-Anne Briscoe and others spoke about how fortunate Canadians are to live in this wonderful country. That sense of wonderfulness, said the mayor, shone loudly and clearly with such occasions during the past year as the Olympic Torch Run that brought some 3,000 energized people to Douglas last December. That same sense of wonderfulness, she said, shone brightly during her battle against and apparent victory over breast cancer. Speaking to 100 or so area residents during the township’s Canada Day celebrations, she said “I truly thank you all for that.” In keeping with Briscoe’s reputation for saluting the residents of her township, she noted how 50 per cent of Canadians are volunteers, and how the higher percentage in Admaston-Bromley serves to keep that number as high as it is. The same Canada Day afternoon, the township paid particular tribute to three of those volunteers, in the annual tradition of honouring its citizen and senior citizen of the year.

Those respective winners were Dave Lemkay, as top citizen, and Joanne and Ivan McDonald as senior citizens of the year. Lemkay has spearheaded numerous projects, including ones to bring wider broadband connectivity and cellular-phone coverage to the area. He was also signalled out for heading the committee that co-ordinated the hugely successful Olympic Torch Relay festivities in Douglas. He has worn many hats over the past 60 years, said Mayor Briscoe. These have included director of the Ottawa Valley Historical Society, long-time member of the Antique Car Club of Pembroke, active parent and husband, and continued connection with the Canadian and Ottawa Valley forestry industry. “I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been at a meeting where there’s been Dave Lemkay,” said MPP John Yakabuski. “It’s obvious how much work Dave Lemkay has done.” Turning to Lemkay, he added: “I don’t think there are enough superlatives to describe the amount and depth of contribution you have made. I’m proud to stand here and congratulate you as citizen of the year.” In saying thanks for the award, Lemkay said “making things happen in a community is done with a lot of helpers” and that “this is a wonderful community to be in, and I have the distinct pleasure of living in Douglas.” See CITIZENS, Page 39

CANADA DAY


CANADA DAY CANADA DAY IN CALABOGIE Ottawa visitor K.C. Bogie and friend Raquel Lloyd were in the ‘Bogie Canada Day to enjoy the festivities. Egged on by Greater Madawaska firefighters Ross Smith, left, and Corey Moss, they engaged in a race to see who could get dressed in fire gear quickest. They result was a tie, with a time of one minute and 17 seconds. Bogie and Lloyd were amazed how long firefighters can function in such heavy gear.

Mercury photos by John Carter

Clown JJ (Jack Ledger) was kept busy making balloon animals and swords for the youngsters at the Calabogie Canada Day celebrations. From left with JJ are Jack Pearce, Josh Maycock and Max Pearce.

The Calabogie Canada Day pie-eating contest didn’t go exactly as fire chief Betsy Sayers planned when she responded to a challenge from firefighters Ross Smith, left, and Corey Moss. The contest began innocently enough, but the firefighters decided to initiate their new chief with a blueberry pie in the face. The two pranksters then high-five each other to celebrate. Sayers took the prank in stride, noting that in a serious job such as firefighting a strong team spirit and a great sense of humour is needed to get everyone through the tough days. “I’ve got a terrific team – we laughed for hours,” she said.

Five northern harrier eggs escape the haybine Kent Storie was cutting hay last Saturday when he came upon a nest of eggs. The female bird had just flown and Kent knew the approximate area where the nest was located. He found the nest on the ground with five, large off-white eggs. He gave it a wide birth to offer as much protection to the nest and eggs as possible. When he checked his field guide he found the nest to be that of northern harrier (once known as a March hawk) one of the few hawks that nest on the ground. There are many predators of the eggs and young: gulls, coyotes and foxes that can easily find the nest if it is exposed by the loss of the hay cover. Fortunately, Kent saw the nest in time and left a large area of uncut hay to protect the nest. There have been several occasions when alert farmers have seen the nests and left an area of standing hay for the bird’s protection. To them we say thankyou. A VARIETY OF COLOURS We received this e-mail from Julia Dawn at Mount Saint Patrick. Last week our yard was a palette of colours. A Ruby Throated Hummingbird was preening himself on a branch while pairs of American Goldfinch and Purple

JIM FERGUSON SCENE FROM THE HAWK’S EYE

Photo by Jim Ferguson

A northern harrier is ready to make its first flight. Finch (both males and females) were getting seed at the Niger seed feeder. A male Indigo Bunting flew past, possibly on his way to collect food for his mate. The bright orange and black of an American Redstart was very visible as it flitted among the tree branches in search of insects. All this we saw from our kitchen window. I was enthralled by the variety of colour! We have since seen a pair of Eastern Bluebirds.

I wonder what species we will see next. Sincerely, Julia Dawn. NESTING PROOF Kathryn Lindsay has seen young sandhill crane in the area, definite proof that the birds are nesting. Kathryn has seen the birds in several locations when she was doing her bird surveys. The cranes have been seen in their preferred habitat; wet meadows, shallow marshes, and marshy borders along lakes and rivers, for several years. Each year more and more young are seen with their parents, families of up to eight birds have been seen feeding together. It usually takes many seasons of positive nest sightings to say a species has established a permanent nesting colony. YOUNG LEAVE HOME American bitterns are born very close to the waters edge but wander in search of food and in some cases far from their home as soon as they leave the nest. They spend very little time with their parents. After leaving the nest, in six or seven weeks, they spend much of their time with their siblings searching for food. Any thing that moves and is small enough for them to catch can and will be considered food.

Along the water’s edge, fish, frogs, small snakes, eels and snails are food and on land grasshoppers, crickets and beetles are part of their diet. Watch for these tan-coloured birds with long bills. ABANDONED BIRDS? There is no such thing as an abandoned bird. Parents may be killed or a young bird may fall from the nest, but they are not abandoned. Unfortunately, parents do not recognize their young if they fall or are forced from the nest and are unable to make a sound that the parents can identify with. When the young are able make their begging call, the parents do understand and will feed the young. If you or your children find a young bird, try to place it in the nest or on a limb near the nest out of harm’s way. Young birds require a great deal of attention and special foods given to them every 20 minutes. Mortality rates are extremely high even with the best of care. If a young bird strikes a window or is injured in some other way, it can be kept safe from predators by holding it gently in the hands. Very often this revives them and they are able to fly away. Enjoy your birding. Ila and Jim Ferguson, 5313 River Road, RR 5, Renfrew, Ontario K7V 3Z8 Phone 613-432-2738 or e-mail jamesh@nrtco.net.

The Renfrew Mercury - July 8, 2010

AGRICULTURE

Corn should be knee high July 1, but it is much better There’s an old saying that corn should be knee high by July 1. Most of the corn around here was knee high and higher. Some corn was thigh high. Rows are filled in with leaves. Farmers in many areas of eastern Ontario and east-central Ontario were reporting waisthigh corn by June 22. The best cornfields I saw were near Pakenham. It was on June 30 when we drove through the area on the way to Brockville. It looked like corn you’d normally see the third week of July. The leaves are dark green and waist high. I stopped to check the

MAYNARD VAN DER GALIEN RURAL ROUTES height and found that the plants came up to my stomach. That’s very rare for the end of June. The drive home we went the Perth and Lanark village way coming out at Calabogie. There is some corn growing in the Perth-Lanark area but not much compared to most farming areas of the province. That route has mostly hay fields and an odd time you’ll see cattle

grazing. Hay hasn’t been selling very well in the last few years. Actually, it hasn’t been selling at all. There were bumper crops and beef cattle numbers are way down in eastern Ontario. Round bales from last year are sitting in rows on sloping hillsides. If you want to see large numbers of cattle grazing you have to drive to northern Ontario – the New Liskeard and Temiskaming area. I was amazed at the many cattle I saw there last fall. June wasn’t a great month to be making dry hay. It wasn’t a

great month for soybeans. Many fields were slow germinating and now crops are suffering from drought. But it was an incredible month for corn. We had 13 rainy or showery days during the month of June. Just a little over four inches (102 mm) of rain fell during the month in our area. For four days (June 22 to 25) 44 mm fell. That perked things up. Corn plants always amaze me. They kept on growing during the dry weather. They’ll need moisture every week. Early in a corn plants growth, as the root system begins to de-

velop, a little water shortage may actually benefit the plant. Establishing a deeper root system early on will improve the plant’s ability to tap water from greater depths if moisture stress occurs later. In corn, drought stress is most damaging to harvestable yield two weeks before to two weeks after silk emergence. Corn is looking good but not the selling price this fall. Price is about the same as in the 1970s. With the increased heat units we’re experiencing it should make for a bumper crop of corn.

1910: Theatre reopens O’BRIEN THEATRE RE-OPENING: The O’Brien Theatre will re-open for the coming season on August 22. Manager George has received a noteworthy event for the date so the re-opening night should assuredly be an auspicious one. The Blue Mouse, one of FROM THE OLD FILES the big successes of the dramatic season, will be on the bill. This is one of the Schubert plays so little more need be said of its excellence, as all the Schubert offerings are highclass. Among other bills at the O’Brien Theatre will be Mrs. Wiggs of the Cabbage Patch and Ol Olson, the great Swedish drama. OPEN AIR SONG SERVICE: The Renfrew Ministerial Association began a song service on the Market Square last Sunday evening at 8:15. President McEwen conducted the meeting. Old familiar hymns were sung, led by Mr. Carr with the coronet.

OUR CHANGING LANDSCAPE A piece of local history disappeared from the landscape this past week as the former Butson’s restaurant and pub on the outskirts of Renfrew was demolished. Over the years, the restaurant hosted a long list of dignitaries, celebrities and good times for all.

Several members of the church choirs were present to help with the singing. More are expected next Sunday evening should the weather be propitious. The Rev. J.D. Ellis closed with prayer. Those who were present enjoyed the service. The spirit of reverence and devotion governed the quiet throng seated in various places of vantage surrounding the square. See Mercury old files, Page 57

CARDS OF THANKS

All Our Love, Mommy, Daddy & Justin

Thank You Just Thank You seems so insignificant right now. Thank you, a million times over, might start to show our appreciation to everyone who helped and grieved with us during the tragic loss of our precious Scott. Thank you to the Renfrew O.P.P for your professional and compassionate care. Your job can not be easy. Thank you to our hockey families and friends who took over the kitchen, house and phone. You were absolutely amazing! Thank you to everyone who brought food, sundries, drinks, coolers and the fridge. What a great help. Thank you to Trinity St. Andrews United Church and the UCW, everything was wonderful. Heather Kinkaid, you were wonderful. It’s amazing how old family ties show up throughout our lives. The service was beautiful. Thank you. Thank you to Brian and Alison Sharpe and family for all you’ve done for our family. Your part of the service was so comforting and touching. We cherish your friendship. Thank you to Dr. Collins, you’ve gone over and above the call of your profession to help us, and we truly appreciate it. To Kirk, Katherine and family at Anderson Funeral Home - your care, compassion and love was incredible. You guided and helped us when it was equally as difficult for you. We love you. Thank you to the pallbearers and to Christopher for singing, we really appreciate it. To Jane Smith, thanks for helping us pick out our family plot. To everyone who made donations in memory of Scott. Thank you. To all of our dear family, friends and our wonderful community, thank you for helping us through this tragic loss. We’ll never forget all you’ve done for our family.

Sincerely, The Forgie Family

CARDS OF THANKS

We wish to express our gratitude to all who sent cards and best wished for our 50th Wedding Anniversary

The family of the late Averil McLeod would like to give our deeply felt thanks to our relatives, friends, neighbours and colleagues for all of their generous support, kindness and generosity during this very difficult time losing a wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. The prayers, words of comfort, food, donations, and cards were greatly appreciated. Special thanks to the Emergency Response Paramedic Team, Emergency Room Staff at Renfrew Victoria Hospital, Emergency Room Staff at The Ottawa Civic Hospital, Unit #11 of Trinity St. Andrew’s United Church Women, Renfrew OPP and O’Neil Insurance.

IN MEMORIAM

Nothing can ever take away, The love a heart holds dear. Fond memories linger every day, Remembrance keeps you near.

We often lay awake at night When the world is fast asleep And take a walk down memory lane With tears upon our cheeks.

Lovingly remembered, Vi

Remembering you is easy, We do it every day, But missing you is a heartache That never goes away. We hold you tightly within our hearts And there you will remain, For although life has gone on without you, It never will be the same. So many things have happened, Since you were called away, So many things to share with you, Had you been left to stay. Every day in some small way, Memories of you come our way, Though absent, you are ever near, Still missed, forever loved, and always dear. Dad & Michelle

In loving memory of a Dear Husband Jack Lewis who passed away on July 9, 2007 I lost a husband with a heart of gold, How much i miss him can’t be told, His life was unselfish for others he lived; Not to receive but only to give, Helpful, willing, thoughtful and kind, What beautiful memories he left behind. Loving You Always Lucy

Lewis, Jack In loving memory of our Dear Dad and Father-in-law; Jack Lewis who passed away July 9, 2007. Our lives go on without you, But nothing is the same. We have to hide our heartaches, When someone speaks your name, Sad are the hearts that love you, Silent are the tears that fall. Living our lives without you Is the hardest part of all. You did so many things for us Your heart was kind and true, And when we needed someone, We could always count on you. The special years will not return When we were all together But the love we have within our hearts You will walk with us forever. We Love You Always and Forever; Hilda (Jim), Keith (Linda), Norm (Sue), Ann (Bob), Leonard (Jean), Brenda (Sam), Randy (Marjorie).

HERITAGE JULY 8, 1970 RENFREW GIRL TO SCOTLAND: Miss Nancy Bailey, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C. Bailey of Thomsonhill, has been selected to participate in a teacher exchange program that will have her teaching in Scotland during the 1970-71 term. She has been teaching in Sault Ste. Marie since 1963. Overseas teaching is not new for Miss Bailey. She taught in France and Germany in 1966-67 for the Department of National Defence. Nancy leaves Canada July 10 to begin duties in late August at St. John’s School in Perth. This exchange has been arranged through the Canadian Education Association and the British League for the exchange of Commonwealth Teachers. FIRST OPTION ON ARMORIES: Though bureaucracy does tend to take its time, it appears eventually the Town of Renfrew will be able to buy the Renfrew Armories. At Monday evening’s committee of the whole meeting, a letter was read from the Crown Assets Disposal Corporation in Ottawa which took note that the town has made application to buy the building. It was vacated when the Lanark and Renfrew regiment and the pipe band were recently disbanded by the federal government. The letter said the local armories will be appraised in the near future to establish the current market value. Mayor Haramis pointed out to the council the town has first option on the building and when the value is set, council will be contacted regarding the going price. For help with research, contact olewis@ sympatico.ca.
