The fundraising campaign for Bonnechere Manor’s auditorium has definitely warmed up. Following the $1 million fundraising campaign kickoff on a frigid Jan. 29 at the Renfrew long-term care home, there are now enough funds pledged or raised to trigger construction for the much-anticipated auditorium. The County of Renfrew is now seeking requests for proposal (RFP) to build the auditorium, to be located where the courtyard now sits. The deadline for RFPs is July 28. Construction is to begin this summer and to be completed by March 31, 2011. Bonnechere Manor, which moved into the building in 1995, has had no auditorium since then. The county is seeking a design-build package, which includes architectural drawings. “We’ve had great success with the design-build approach for our ambulance stations,” said Jim Lynch, the county’s manager of real property assets. Those stations were recently built in Arnprior, Petawawa and Barry’s Bay. The contract calls for construction of a facility of about 4,800 square feet, of which just less than 4,000 contains the auditorium. The other space is for a cement patio at the auditorium’s west end. County documents say proposals may include “the ability for proponents to achieve a lasting legacy through a donation or a financial support of the project in a philanthropic manner.

Tired of Waiting for Dial-Up??

Janney throws hat in the ring STEVE NEWMAN

steve.newman@metroland.com

Doug Janney is the third Renfrew resident to file nomination papers for a position on Renfrew council. He’s also the second non-council member to express an interest. Jim Miller filed his papers several months ago, while current councillor, Bill Guyea, recently filed. Two other council members, Kate Windle and Bill Ringrose, are seeking the position of reeve and mayor respectively, meaning council will have at least two new councillors elected this year. Hoping to be one of them, Janney hopes he can be a catalyst for the town regarding future relations with local businesses. He says this knowing the town has taken much criticism after George Jackson Toyota walked away from a prospective new site in Renfrew to break ground in neighbouring Horton Township. Janney, 68, says he criticizes regulations and bureaucratic process far more than he does council or town staff for the loss of that business. A former and recent member on the town’s committee of adjustment and planning committee and a former long-time member of the federal public service, he says his knowledge and experience may benefit the town. Janney, who has won three battles with cancer, says he’s running for council after seeking public opinion. “I’ve tested the waters, that’s why I’ve made the decision. Everybody said they wanted a change,” said Janney of his informal poll with a dozen or so residents in different sectors of the community. “I don’t want to go in swinging and saying what a horrible job they’ve done.

Doug Janney I just think it’s a place and time for new ideas and new initiatives.” As much as Janney calls Renfrew a great place where he and wife Lynda have lived since 2002, he says the town can be better. For example, he says call-backs from council and staff members don’t always happen. Meanwhile, wife Lynda likes the idea of her husband running for council. “I think it’s great,” she says. “He’s interested in contributing and making a difference.” Qualities he could bring to the position, says Janney, are his persuasiveness, persistence, open-door policy and communication skills. While he says his bigger accomplishments have come later in life, he takes no extra credit for beating cancer. “I was totally at the mercy of God,” says Janney, who is also an evangelist. Janney, who has never run for a town council, knows what it’s like to be an elected official. He was a president of the Nepean Girls Hockey Association in the 1980s when his daughter was playing. Growing up in different, and sometimes difficult, times in Toronto also gives Janney a sense of empathy for others, he suggests. His grandparents raised him while his mother was temporarily hospitalized for treatment of tuberculosis and his dad was overseas fighting in the Second World War.

“There was so much love,” he says of that time with his grandparents. “It was like the Plouffe family on a Friday night,” he says of the 1950s CBC television drama that was revived as a mini-series in the 1980s. Janney, who has two children and four grandchildren, says his own vision of Renfrew’s future includes “not (becoming) a city,” but inheriting more industrial base to allow the town to do more with its tax base. A pool is definitely needed, stresses Janney, noting that different pool programs could benefit the disabled, senior citizens, low-income families, youth and fitness enthusiasts. He’d also like to see more housing for senior citizens. “We will have to prepare our community to respond to the need,” he says. “Additional facilities will provide benefits and create jobs.” He adds the town already has some important community components intact. “It’s clean and well maintained,” he explains. “There’s great snow removal, great garbage collection, great people and a fine hospital.”

“In return, the County of Renfrew will acknowledge the contributions of the proponent in a manner fitting the purpose.” Where federal and provincial legislation permits, the county says it will strive to make available to the proponent a charitable tax receipt. “The nice thing is (applicants) have architectural

freedom,” said Lynch, noting the auditorium may feature a stage with a strong visual component. Lynch said August’s property and development committee is scheduled to make a recommendation for approval at the Aug. 25 session of Renfrew County council. Construction could be underway within a week of that date, said Lynch.

Tourism group hopes travellers will choo-choose Renfrew Focus on McDougall Mill Museum, swinging bridge and caboose LUCY HASS lucy.hass@metroland.com

Signs are up directing people to Renfrew’s tourism gem – O’Brien Park. Named after one of the town’s most famous developers, the park along the shores of the Bonnechere River is home to the historic McDougall Mill Museum and Swinging Bridge. Those attractions and many more will be promoted this summer by ambassadors Amanda Coulas and Jessa Harper who are working this summer from the information centre at Howie Haramis Park on O’Brien Road. The visitor information centre is open 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily. A special feature this year is that the ambassadors will be giving Renfrew t-shirts to children visiting the tourist information site. The girls are also busy developing the CNR caboose on site, outlining the history of rail in the community. Visitors can enjoy one of Barry Breen’s railway sets that is set up inside the freshly-painted caboose. The grounds outside have come alive with flowers. Plans are also in the works to display railway artifacts inside the caboose and donations of small railway-related artifacts are welcomed. The committee hopes to set up a secure display cabinet for these artifacts, and install a security system will protect the items. TOURISM COMMITTEE BUSY

GETTING TO KNOW YOU Amanda and Jenna already know a lot about Renfrew from living here. Amanda’s favourite attraction is Tracey’s Dairy and Jessa is a big fan of the Millennnium Trail. But there is always more to learn, and the girls’ horizons were expanded at tourist ambassador training. The three-day session included customer service training and an Ottawa Valley familiarization tour that included whitewater rafting and visits to shops, bed and breakfasts and more. Organized and hosted by the Ottawa Valley Tourist Association (OVTA), the tour is designed to increase the staff ’s overall understanding of the unique tourism products in the Ottawa Valley; provide an opportunity for them to experience first-hand the services and hospitality of some OVTA members; as well as assist them in gaining a better understanding of the travel

time and distances between geographic locations. Understanding the importance of the tour and the value of having well-informed staff, numerous OVTA tourism operators welcomed the group to their businesses and sponsored various activities and meals. Prior to the tour, staff attended a half-day customer service workshop, sponsored by the Buy Local Initiative, at The Sands on Golden Lake in Deacon, . The workshop, delivered by Chris Hinsperger, co-owner of the Bonnechere Caves and associate with the Delfi Group, taught staff the seven steps to effective customer problem solving; how to deal with difficult customers and challenges; the recovery process, and more. The ambassadors were also introduced to the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (2005) and the accompanying Customer Service Standards. “The Visitor Information Centres are vital points of access for tourism information for hundreds of thousands of tourists who visit the Ottawa Valley every year,” said OVTA communications co-ordinator Lauren McIllfaterick. “It is important for the staff to be well informed about the Ottawa Valley.” Discount Car and Truck Rentals donated two vans for the three-day tour and the Best Western in Pembroke and Renfrew are the continuing sponsors of the staff identification badges. “It is wonderful to have the generous support of the membership who sponsored the various activities and donated time to give personal tours and offer experiences on some of the unique features that the Valley has to offer,” said McIllfaterick. Both of Renfrew’s ambassadors are post-secondary students. This autumn Amanda returns to her second year at Sir Wilfrid Laurier, and Jenna enters her fifth year at the University of Guelph.

Amanda Coulas, at left, and Jessa Harper are this year’s tourism ambassadors, working from the information booth at Haramis Park on O’Brien Road in Renfrew. Development of the CNR caboose is among their many responsibilities this summer.

Renfrew Industrial Commission manager Norm Anderson says the town has a rich heritage in lumber and rail, and the tourism centre wants to celebrate that history. Permission is also being sought to erect some steam-power artifacts, donated by Dr. Bill Burwell, on the park grounds.

A television will also be set up in the caboose to air an edited version of Kate Windle’s video Then and Now, showing special features of the town. Community involvement is encouraged “It would be very helpful if all organizations would keep the committee informed of any activities which might be of interest to visitors to the area,” says Anderson. He can be contacted at 613-432-5813. Minutes from the June 17 meeting of the Renfrew and Area Tourist Committee also note an important visitor service – waste facilities for recreational vehicles. This year a sewage disposal facility will be available beside Mask Road. It has been suggested the entrance farthest from O’Brien Road be widened, so vehicles can drive in from Mask Road, dispose of their sewage, then drive by the tourist caboose.

Since the age of eight, when I used my allowance to buy my first camera, I have captured loving relationships on film. One of my favourite photos is of my grandmother. In that photo, I know that we had just shared a joke together, and that she is looking at me; it’s as though she is still with me. For me, portraits are about relationships: grandparents, fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, sisters, brothers, husbands and wives, friendships... The most important lesson I’ve learned about life is the one most often talked about: that time passes quickly, life is short, and we should spend the time we have doing what brings the most joy to the people around us and, therefore, to ourselves; the pursuit of money is not what brings us happiness – loving relationships are what matter most. I plan to spend the rest of my time photographing these relationships. I think my enjoyment of photography stems from my family’s interest in family, and I often ask people, “What will you be in years to come? A name and date on the Internet or in a book, or a real person captured forever in a portrait?” And, if you are going to be remembered by future generations in a portrait, take the time to see a professional so that you and your loved ones are presented in the most flattering image possible. It’s true that many people own relatively easy-to-use, point-andshoot cameras, but the person pointing the camera often knows little about lighting and composition, leaving some people with half of their face in darkness or covered by the person in front of them. For the price of a dinner out, you can bring many years of enjoyment to your children and grandchildren. Often family members can share the cost, making it even more affordable. I take portraits at family homes,

to tell stories about them to the kids; I am trying to create a bond between them and the portraits help a great deal with this. I am currently working at the Bonnechere Manor in Renfrew photographing the residents and their families, along with staff members and their families. I am also attending special events at the manor and taking photos of ongoing activities. I am pleased to be actively involved in this wonderful community and am donating 20 per cent of the proceeds collected during photo shoots at the Manor to the building of the new auditorium. I thank everyone for their support in this endeavour. In my studio, conveniently located just off Raglan Street and close to downtown Renfrew, I take the time to get to know people and offer a relaxing, warm, private, and most importantly, fun atmosphere. Some of the loving bonds I’ve captured are between people and their pets, and I’ve had many four-legged companions over this year. It’s definitely not the big-box experience!

SEALED TENDERS on forms supplied by the Township Clerk will be received in envelopes plainly marked as to contents by the Township clerk at her office in the Township Hall, R.R.2 2508 Russett Drive, Arnprior, Ontario, until 1:00P.M. local time on:

Arnprior man dies in rollover JOHN CARTER

john.carter@metroland.com

An Arnprior man was killed in a rollover on Highway 417 east of town Tuesday morning. OPP report Ronald Levesque, 41, was partially ejected from his pickup truck and pronounced dead at the scene. When OPP Ottawa Traffic Detachment officers responded to a report of a vehicle leaving the westbound lanes of Highway

417 near the Galetta Side Road about 5:50 a.m., they found the pickup overturned in the ditch. Police say the driver had lost control and speed is being considered a factor. The highway’s westbound lanes were closed for just over seven hours, reopening about 1:15 p.m., to allow for the investigation. Westbound traffic was rerouted at Kinburn Road. It was the third fatal crash on roads east of Arnprior in the past six weeks, two in the last 10 days.

Air ambulance transports injured boy SHERRY HAAIMA shaaima@msn.com

The Renfrew OPP is reminding the public to be vigilant about all-terrainvehicle safety after a weekend incident that could have been far worse than it was. They were called to Ferguson Lake campground on Saturday, July 10, at 11:20 a.m. after an 11-year-old boy sustained non-life-threatening injuries while driving an ATV. The air ambulance was brought in to the Calabogie-area park to transport the boy to the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario.

mized due to the fact he was wearing a helmet,” she said. “There’s an important message there.” The boy was only 11 years old, said Sawbridge, and many ATVs state right on them they are to be used by people 16 years and up. It’s possible the boy in this case was using a vehicle too large for him. She reminded users to exercise extreme caution with ATVs and other recreational vehicles. “They are dangerous, especially in the hands of young people. Thankfully, this incident turned out alright. It could have been tragic.”

OPINION EDITORIAL

LETTER

Knock, knock. Who’s there?

Property stolen from scout camp To the editor: Camp Legewade is on Hurd’s Lake and is used by the youth from all the Scouting groups in our region. This camp survives on generous donations and help from the public and businesses in and around Renfrew and Arnprior area. Recently someone came in and stole the whipper-snipper which was generously donated to us as well as a 12’ x 26’ garage tent that we use for our week long Cub camp from July 3 to 9. The only income that the camp has coming in, is from rentals and Scouts Canada has cut us down to only Scouting and “like” groups. As a result that income barely covers the insurance, fuel and propane and there isn’t much left over for repairs and upkeep. There is definitely nothing left for replacing stolen items. I hope the people who did this are real happy with themselves and realize what they have done to Camp Legewade and all the youth who depend on the camp for their camping and learning experience.

eing a voter is a big responsibility. Perhaps that’s why so many people bow out. They just don’t feel qualified. Scratch that excuse off your list. Here’s what you need to know. First of all, like it or not, you will be taxed. Every time a tax bill lands on your doorstep it is a direct reflection of your inaction, or inaction. Municipal elections are often viewed as less than federal and provincial where millions are invested in rock ‘em, sock ‘em television attack ads and rabid, screaming partisanship. When you vote in a municipal election you are basically hiring people to take care of your business for you. Almost every decision affects you directly, from whether or not your street is snowplowed to what you will pay for water. And we’re not talking peanuts. Renfrew’s elected officials oversee a $15 million corporation, and you’re a part owner. Every single dollar is yours. So how do you want it spent? A mayor, reeve and five councillors will decide that. So before you choose your members of council, read their resumes (promotional brochures and advertising) closely. If a candidate knocks on your door, don’t be afraid to ask questions, and expect answers. Ask what uniquely qualifies them to represent you. Ask for their top-three priorities, and ask them their interests outside of politics. It will tell you a lot about the way they will lean on certain issues. And remember that councillors are more than policy makers. They are also expected to be ombudsmen, representing and giving voice to your concerns. Whom would you have speak for you?

LETTERS

Stand up for future rights To the editor: I was very disappointed and sad to see Cheryl Gallant justifying the abuses of power and money that took place during the G20 summit in Toronto. Cheryl, please do your homework. The evidence is there, if you look beyond the mainstream media, which focused solely and obsessively on a relatively small number of violent incidents. Having viewed evidence in private footage, I believe at least some of these incidents were staged, in order to justify the expenditure and to allow the abuses of police power which were to follow, denying citizens freedom of peaceful expression (signs, speeches,

music, poetry, etc.). Mainstream media coverage of the majority, who were promoting peace, was absent, and many, including innocent bystanders, people coming home from work etc., had their civil, charter, and human rights seriously abused. They were arrested and incarcerated, without legal procedure, and under conditions that violated human rights. All levels of government have the power to call public inquiries. Please, Cheryl, stand up and speak out for ensuring the future rights of you, your family, and your constituents. Sincerely, Leslie Rivers-Garrett Killaloe

Mercury Mercur y The Renfrew

Conservatives set another record To the editor: The Conservative government under Stephen Harper has set another record. After having established record budget deficits during a recession that they said would never happen, they have now spent more money on the hosting the G8 and G20 summits than any other country in history. Courtesy of Stephen Harper, the Canadian taxpayers will pay $1.1 billion for an event lasting precisely three days and two nights. The magnitude of this sum of money is easily put into perspective by last year’s figures: The G20 summit in Pittsburgh cost $18 million; the G20 meeting in London cost $30 million. Given the scale of this waste of public funds, one would expect some form of acknowledgment of wrongdoing by Harper and his government. Not in the least. As a result,

Canadians are understandably furious. They clearly know something the Harper government is not the least concerned about. With $1.1 billion spent on three days of summit, there will be a lot less health care for needy people; there will be a lot less support for the unemployed; there will be a lot less investment in economic development and public infrastructure. In short, Canadians will have a lot less of their own taxpayer’s money. Perhaps they’ll be relieved by Stephen Harper’s claim that the fake lake installed for the benefit of journalists visiting for two nights was not at all expensive. It “only” cost $57,000, not the $2 million claimed by everyone except the government. With a government like this, cry me a river. Sincerely, Elizabeth Stewart Waba

To the editor: I would like to address some of the items raised in a letter by Angela Field printed in the July 8 Mercury. Hers was a response to a letter found in the June 24 Mercury written by Rev. Rose Leclaire. Ms. Field’s letter touched on many issues of which I will only address three: 1. Ms. Field discusses a Pink Day at RCI – a day to protest bullying and violence toward other students. I think that leading students to stand up against bullying and violence of other students is most appropriately done in a school setting. I am also of the opinion that Rev. Rose would agree with me on this, and that she, herself, is firmly committed to ending bullying and violence toward anyone – homosexual or not. My instinct is that Rev. Rose’s concern was with how the article and photo were presented: as a group of students standing up in support of homosexuals who engage in homosexual activity. If this is the case, then I fully agree with Rev. Rose that there needs to be a firm distinction between those who, on one hand, aim to end bullying and violence towards homosexuals, and those who, on the other hand, support homosexual activity. I am certainly in the first category, but not the second. 2. Later, Ms. Field states that, “education is what will enlighten and empower all of us.” This is certainly not a new concept, and I am no expert in the debates that have surrounded this topic for hundreds (if not thousands) of years. I can say, however, that I believe the education of humans by humans is always going to have its errors. One is reminded of how, at one time, education would have involved learning that the earth is flat. We have come a long way since, but we are no less stubborn than those who refused to believe without first seeing – thus the current rejection of Christ by many. Personally, I try to learn what I can while I’m here, but I know that education won’t save me on the day of judgement. In any case, the more I learn, the more apparent it becomes that I know next to nothing, so I follow higher authority than any system of education designed by man. I will also keep my distance from any education system that rejects God’s teachings, such as any sex-education that would teach acceptance of homosexual behaviour.

OPINION

Love is the foundation To the editor: In a letter to the editor last week the writer spoke of tolerance and seemed to imply the tolerance was gained by exposure and openness to all that is in the world today. As I see it, the foundation of tolerance is love. I am a practising Christian, Roman Catholic to be specific, and my value system is based on the teachings of the Church. As a parent I am the primary educator of my children and therefore will decide what is right or wrong based on my moral conviction. Am I making my child intolerant because I refuse to allow them to be educated on sexual issues that I believe are age-inappropriate, or are in direct conflict with my moral standing? I do not support things like abortion, the act of homosexuality, sex before marriage, to name a few. To support these issues would be in direct conflict with the foundations of my values and beliefs. I believe that there is sin in the world and as a family we pray for forgiveness of our sins and those of the world, and we involve ourselves in social actions to support our beliefs so that we may reconcile ourselves and our world to God. We do not consider ourselves to be righteous. We are taught to reject sin and to clarify sins are

Scripture

From page 9 Ours is a God of love, but also of justice. Remember that He destroyed the entire city of Sodom. That’s reason enough for me to believe sodomy is dangerous. 3. Two other major issues raised by Ms. Field are extramarital sex and abortion. It is noteworthy that these two often are promoted together – for without abortion, how can one be freed by extramarital sex? After all, Ms. Field does seem to acknowledge that abstinence is the only truly effective contraceptive. But she states that, “very few people’s lives have been destroyed by having an abortion.” This is quite simply a lie. She argues that most negative effects on the mother and others closely involved are not at all a result of the abortion. I disagree (see www.silentnomoreawareness. org), but more importantly, Ms. Field totally misses the mark here by failing to mention the babies. Each abortion ends a fully human life that began at the moment of conception. The fact that it is totally dependent on its mother for a period of time in the womb changes nothing here. The baby is dependent on others after birth, too. As a matter of fact, I am approaching 22 years

actions only. We do not teach our children to be homophobic or to burn down abortion clinics. We do, however, teach our children to stand up for what is right and to do it with love and compassion. Rev. Rose Leclaire’s letter, to me, just spoke of the need to protect our children and did not come across as attacking anyone. The lack of support for the Government of Ontario’s sex education curriculum was driven by parents, some Christians, some of other faiths, some with no faith and some without children. The backlash to this curriculum was driven by the love for our children, not by intolerance. When one stands up for their beliefs or values they are not intolerant if the foundation of their actions are based on love. The roots of intolerance are hate, ignorance, fear, jealousy and envy, things that my wife and I, as Christians, chose not to teach our children. There seems to be a movement in our world today that if you have faith you are narrow minded, judgemental, and intolerant. The message from Jesus is to condemn sin but love the sinner. Jesus separated the action from the person and He always loved the person. To me, this is how you teach tolerance. Wayne Troutman Douglas of age and I am still dependent on others. Without farmers and gardeners and the rich technological history that we all currently enjoy, I don’t know how long I would last when faced with nature all on my own. And this is only a consideration of basic human needs – food, shelter. I am dependent further still on family and friends for love and support. The degree to which I am dependent on others has no correlation with how human I am. I am as much a human now as I was while in my mother’s womb – no less and certainly no more. Since 1969, about 3,200,000 Canadian babies have died through abortion (see www.campaignlifecoalition.com for this and other information). The global figures are even more disturbing. Ms. Field, how can you tell us that very few people’s lives have been destroyed by abortion? I sincerely hope that all readers of the Mercury will think deeply about what they have read here and in the letters by Angela Field and Rev. Rose Leclaire, and consult the statistics and the scriptures where necessary to determine what the truth really is. Stephen Helferty Douglas

Who are they hurting?

To the editor: I was delighted to read Angela Field’s witty and incisive letter in response to Rev. Rose Leclaire. For the record, the Day of Pink is a day to stand up against bullying of all kinds, but with a special emphasis on homophobic bullying. For anyone curious, the website for the event is http://www.dayofpink.org. Ms. Field hit the nail on the head when she asked, “Who are they hurting by behaving in a way that is, to them, natural?”

Over 200 years ago, Jeremy Bentham, one of the first proponents of animal rights, argued that the capacity to suffer, and not any other factor, should determine whether we treat animals with respect. Bentham wrote, “...the question is not, Can they reason? nor, Can they talk? but, Can they suffer?” We can draw a parallel when the issue is whether we should respect the behaviour of our fellow human beings: the question is not “Is it natural?” or “Is it a

pretty sight?” but “Is it hurting anyone?” Too often people mistake their aesthetic taste or personal prejudice for a moral compass. We need to remember that what is “abnormal” or even “gross” to us is not necessarily unethical in any way. Before we label the behaviour of others as “right” or “wrong”, we need to ask ourselves that all-important question: “Who are they hurting?” Trent Eady Renfrew

Crime of the Week on Highway 60 Crime Stoppers and the Renfrew detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police need your help to solve a day time break enter and theft at a home on Highway 60 near Douglas. On Wednesday, June 2, some time between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., someone entered the house on Highway 60 and stole a large number of items. The thief would have had to use a large cube van, as a complete set of white melamine kitchen cabinets was among the stolen property. Also stolen was a dry-

wall lift, framing nailer, bathroom vanity, an electric fireplace, shop vac, three baseboard heaters, electrical wiring and numerous tools. The police expect that someone may have seen people loading these items into the truck as the residence is located close to the highway, but it may have appeared the items were being loaded into the home, not stolen.

OPP release stats from Canada Day weekend Sixteen people died on roads, trails and waterways patrolled by the Ontario Provincial Police during the Canada Day long weekend. Ten fatal highway crashes claimed 12 lives while two more people died in marine incidents and two more in all-terrain vehicles crashes. “It was a long weekend that ended in tragedy for many, despite our increased enforcement and continued efforts to educate the public about safe driving, boating and the use of trails,” said OPP Commissioner Julian Fantino. Over the July long weekend, OPP laid 7,122 charges. Speeding offences accounted for 4,318 charges – 80 for street racing. OPP officers laid 91 charges for impaired or over 80 mgs and issued 85 ad-

ministrative driver licence suspensions. Marine offences accounted for 108 charges and ATV offences for another 45. “The majority of these tragedies were preventable, including three people who were killed as a direct result of not wearing a seatbelt,” said Deputy Commissioner Larry Beechey. Four of the fatal collisions involved alcohol and three fatal collisions were as a result of driving too fast. The two drowning victims were reportedly not wearing lifejackets. “We want people to fully enjoy their vacations and travels but they must take steps to ensure their safety, the safety of their passengers and all of the other people using the highways, trails and waterways,” said Beechey.

Const. MaryAnn Heber is investigating the attempted break-and-enter to a residence located on Oak Street in Eganville. Some time July 6 or 7 unknown person(s) attempted to enter the residence by

prying the door open. The parties were not successful. However, police are requesting citizens ensure their doors are locked and to report any suspicious activity.

More money needed for long term care LAST IN A FOUR PART SERIES

By Mike Adler and Rob O’Flanagan

T

he answer to gridlock across Ontario’s longterm care system is an injection of new money, elder advocates say. For nursing-home operators, a top priority is the fulfillment of a long-standing promise from the province to fund more staff. Ontario’s Health Quality Council, a watchdog agency, sees more assisted-living homes as a potential pressure relief valve for overwhelmed nursing homes. For thousands of Ontario families battling the system’s long waiting lists and cumbersome bureaucracy, any relief measure would do. “I think the first thing that is needed are more homes,” Denise Riekstins of Toronto wrote in a typical e-mail response during research for Metroland’s special report. “The waiting lists are ridiculous, especially for newer homes. I also think that more thought should go into how to improve home care, maybe make it more affordable, so the person can stay in their home as along as possible. Institutional homes are certainly not like home.” Health Minister Deb Matthews says quality improvements are taking hold now in all nursing homes, with a focus on reducing traditional health risks such as falls and bed sores. Efforts to make more home care available as an alternative are in progress under a $1.1-billion program created in 2007. More short-stay beds are being created, to help reduce the number of seniors placed permanently in long-term care. Such “restorative” beds, as Matthews calls them, allow elderly people with short-term needs to be placed temporarily

in nursing-home beds to regain their health, and then go home. But what exactly has to happen to produce real change? “I think more time,” Matthews said. “I mean, it does take time to change a system.” Christina Bisanz, CEO of the Ontario Long Term Care Association, believes in a conversion that would see nursing homes become a “hub” for all types of care. With the right kind of planning, she says, Ontario’s existing 625 homes could feature day programs for the frail elderly who have dementia or chronic diseases, “to help them to live in the community as long as possible.” Bisanz said nursing homes can become “more than just the residence where 24-7 care is given.” In some Ontario long-term care homes, that’s already happening. At Shalom Village in Hamilton, residents pump iron to help maintain functional mobility. Shalom’s health-club concept was originally regarded skeptically by potential funding bodies, said Pat Morden, the home’s chief executive. A longterm care home is traditionally viewed as a place of restful care. That’s changing. Experts in the field of gerontology say such workouts help prevent falls and other debilitating mishaps, and can also improve cognitive ability. Benefits flow to the home and the resident. Attitudes about what longterm care settings should be like and what services they should offer are changing rapidly. Researchers are looking at ways to incorporate brain-benefiting music classes and computer games, and body-strengthening practices such as yoga and tai chi, into daily routines to make the final years of life more rewarding, positive and healthier. Morden has witnessed the ca-

pacity of activities such as music to reactivate mind and spirit. One resident who had a musical background but was debilitated by Parkinson’s and dementia began to participate in the home’s long-standing drum circle. He hadn’t spoken for two years. “He was in the drum circle and he was drumming, and he was sobbing,” Morden said. “He just sobbed and sobbed. And then gradually he took over the leadership of the drum circle. That’s the magic, to find those moments for people, at some level.” Demands on long-term care in Ontario are mounting as the population ages, and as a more affluent and informed population demands better care and more services. Expectations of long-term care

have steadily increased in recent decades, said Dominic Ventresca, director of seniors services for Niagara, who oversees eight municipally run homes. Residents who grew up during the Depression were content with “a bed and a meal,” and an occasional visit from a doctor or nurse, Ventresca said. Ontarians now expect care that is above that base level, Ventresca and others said, with a greater selection of meals and activities, and more timely service — not just having nursing or personal support available, but having it delivered in a timely way, such as more frequent changing of diapers and other incontinence products. Gerry Phillips, Ontario minister responsible for seniors said that the province is also encouraging development of tech-

nology — from high-tech pushbutton devices to summon help or monitor health, to low-tech kitchen sinks people in wheelchairs can use — that could help seniors stay home longer. As demand for senior-friendly devices grows, Phillips said, costs should go down. In a decade, the first of the baby boom generation will hit 75. By 2036, the number of Ontarians 75 and over will rise to 2.2 million, from 850,000 today. Seniors will outnumber children in the future, and one might expect that a scramble to build as many new nursing homes as possible would be under way. But that’s not what the province is doing, contrary to what some experts on the elderly advise. Indeed, the focus is on aging in place. Ontario elder advocate Doris Grinspun said Scandinavia incorporates the elderly into dayto-day life, and embraces them as vibrant members of the community. Every senior in Denmark gets a phone call at 75. “Happy Birthday!” says the nurse on the line. “We’d like to discuss how to help you stay in your house as long as you want.” Grinspun, cochair of the Elder Health Coalition, an adviser to the province of Ontario since 2004, said “we haven’t made enough progress” on helping seniors age gracefully at home, and there’s no time to waste. In many places, small steps and shifts in attitude are inching toward a future where it’s intended that most Ontarians won’t need a nursing-home bed, no matter how long they live. Long-term care in Ontario is undergoing “total renovations,” and elder advocates Concerned Friends of Ontario Citizens in Care Facilities said it is pleased with the province’s new patientcentred direction, said Phyllis Hymmen, the group’s president. “There’s a lot of encouraging things happening,” she said, adding people are still afraid of what the future may be like, “but increasingly less so.”

Post-fire benefit dance Admaston-Bromley mayor says it’s time to pay up planned for Campbell LUCY HASS

WON’T SEEK RE-ELECTION

lucy.hass@metroland.com

A benefit dance is being arranged for Doug Campbell, who lost his Castleford Road home to fire July 6. A benefit dance is being organized by local hamradio operators on behalf of Campbell, who’s also a ham-radio operator. “With everything’s that happened, I figure we should do something to help out,” said organizer Jim Keefe of the Renfrew County ARES (Amateur Radio Emergency Services) East. The 8 p.m. benefit takes place Saturday, July 24 in the Horton Community Centre. There will be live music, food, refreshments, a donation box, and a 50-50 draw. At Campbell’s request, donations will go to a local humane society, which looks after the care of animals. Campbell, 61, lost his two cats − Sparky, a longhaired grey, and shiny black Nigel − in the fire, but his pet turtle, Barkley, survived the ordeal. The three pets were his only companions in the Castleford bungalow, which caught fire from inside one of the two garage bays. Campbell’s lost possessions included a garage full of family mementoes. For more details about the benefit dance, call Jim or Bonnie Keefe at 613-432-2745.

Admaston-Bromley Mayor RayeAnne Briscoe says it’s time to pay up. The province, that is. Briscoe presented a June 29 resolution from county council’s June 29 meeting to her local council, outlining the county’s concern with the current farm tax rebate program. Armed with hard, fast numbers, Briscoe expects upcoming talks at the Association of Municipalities of Ontario (AMO) will see some action on the financial injustice served to the township. Briscoe explained that lost revenue in Admaston-Bromley township – for 2009 alone – was $186,746. The mayor said that if you work through the whole process, “then we have the very serious number here.” That number: a net $1.6 million loss in Renfrew County. “That is huge,” she said. The issue, she said, is being taken on by the Eastern Ontario Wardens’ Caucus. “The strategy’s in place, the numbers are in place … so off we go to Windsor,” she said, referring to the AMO session in August.

Admaston-Bromley Councillor Sandra Crozier has announced she will not be seeking re-election in the fall. “I think it’s time for another family to step up,” said Crozier, noting the benefits of “new blood, new thoughts and new ideas.” “It’s not a job for life,” she said. She added that she has enjoyed her time on council and hopes her announcement gives potential candidates “a little bit of lead time.”

FULL-DAY KINDERGARTEN GOOD There will be full-day kindergarten at Admaston Public School this fall. In September the rural school will be one of about 600 schools, from every school board in Ontario, participating. By September 2011, it will be expanded to over 200 more schools. “This particular timing is particularly good,” said Mayor Raye-Anne Briscoe, noting the simultaneous transition of Grades 7 and 8 to Renfrew Collegiate Institute. “That is really good news in terms of the population of the school,” Briscoe said. “We are very, very fortunate.”

The change should also increase employment at the school, she said. The only other Renfrew-area school to host full-time kindergarten in the fall is Our Lady of Fatima Catholic School. MUM’S THE WORD Admaston-Bromley council won’t know until late this year or early next year who received summer student funding this year. The township made the inquiry after it was unsuccessful in its bid to secure summer help. It was advised the information is not readily available. FUNDS FOR DIVERSION Admaston-Bromley Township has been awarded a grant of $5,000 from Waste Diversion Ontario and Stewardship Ontario. The funds are allocated for the implementation of promotion and education initiatives. The municipality has used the money to purchase and distribute free blue boxes to all residents in the township. The blue boxes cost $8,000.

The Calabogie Fish and Game Club hosted a successful fourth annual live-release bass fishing tournament Saturday on Calabogie Lake. Thirty-five boats hit the lake carrying 68 hopeful fishermen. Among them were 14 junior fishermen. The junior winners were firstplace Jake Powell who won $100 and second-place Caleb Vincent who went home with a new fishing rod. In the adult competion, Pete Robb’s 4.07-pound bass earned him $200, and the second-place prize went to Jim Weatherall for his sec-

ond-place 3.43-lb. catch. On Sunday, action shifted to the Douglas Beach for the Douglas Lions Club annual kids’ derby, which organizers say has been running for at least 15 years. Nine children registered for the event that ran from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The first-place trophy and $30 went to 11-year-old Dalton McClure for his 1.8-lb. bass; second-place trophy and $20 to Cole Bimm for his 15-oz. bass; and little three-year-old Jordan Emoff won the third-place trophy and $15. The actual second-place fish was a small pike hooked by Curtis Barr, who won last year. He waived this year’s title and chose from the prize pool instead so another young fish-

erman could win a trophy. Paul Kilby, who organized the event and was assisted by fellow Lion Billy McLeod, had words of thanks for all those who sponsored and/or supported the event: the Douglas Lions Club, Douglas Grocery, Pro Tyre (Ken Dillabough), BMR Eganville, The Eganville Leader, Admaston-Bromley Township, Bonnechere Caves, Gourley Variety, The Renfrew Mercury, and Cavanagh Construction. Hot dogs, hamburgers and drinks were served, but the refreshments didn’t stop there. Hillary Robinson and Tracey Keller of Eganville’s Finest All Natural Ice Cream brought Curtis Barr waived the second-place title for some lucky some of their fare to the Douglas lures from the generous prize pool at the Douglas Kids’ Derby.

peter.clark@metroland.com

The 433 Champlain Wing of the Air Force Association of Canada held its 56th Charter Night in the auditorium June 25. President Dan Duchene thanked everyone in attendance for their support and efforts to help make the association successful. “You keep the association alive by inviting people out and educating them on the association,” he said. The president them presented the Or-

der of the Astrolabe Award for regular member of the year. “She is seen here more at the Wing than sometimes at home. She is here almost daily,” Duchene said before presenting the award to Donna Johnston. The local Wing also received the Air Force Association of Canada Ontario Group Membership Award Over 100 award. Renfrew was third with more than 100 members in 2009-10. Dorothy Yemen was on hand to accept the award on behalf of the 433 Wing last month.

HERITAGE

Museum visit will be music to your ears Whether you are into jazz, ragtime or even highland bag-piping we will surely have a piece of Renfrew’s musical history that interests you. We have several articles commemorating former musical groups of The Ottawa Valley. Come and check out uniforms worn by Renfrew’s own Citizen’s Band, which existed in the early 1900s, and browse through our collection of black and white photos we have on display of the local group. We also have a great display on the history of Renfrew’s Pipe Band. Through old newspaper articles and corresponding artifacts you can learn the history of the band from their formation in 1913 through to their involvement as regimental pipe bands in the first and second World Wars. The Ottawa Valley’s

famous Bijou Orchestre, which played fox trots and waltzes as far north as Timmins and as far east as Kemptville, in the Roaring Twenties, is also part of our music display. For those wishing to get up close and personal with some musical instruments of bygone days, we have an extensive collection. We have several types of gramophones from the early 1900s, one of which will still play a tune. There is an autoharp from the 1920s, an ornate bell organ from 1917, a brass trombone, a large bass drum from the Orange Lodge in Vernon Ontario and an abundance of old

piano sheet music with a Doherty Organ from the early 1900s. We also have an old cousin of the accordion and harmonica in our collection; a Concertina. One of the museum’s most popular attractions can also be found in our music display, our player piano! This interesting piece of Renfrew history was donated by Hans Rissi, former owner of The Rocky Mountain House. Since its arrival, patrons of all ages have been delighted to take a turn pumping the foot pedals to make the piano’s music play. Here at the museum we have boxes of different song scrolls you can listen to on the player piano. The staff at the McDougall Mill museum invites you to fill the month with music by stopping by and checking out our music display. There is something for everyone.

Now Accepting New Patients DENTAL IMPLANTS Many patients are concerned that any tooth replacements may not look, feel or function like the originals. With dental implants, however, there is no need for concern because, dental implants actually replace not only the missing tooth or teeth, but the roots too, for complete stability and a natural look and feel. If you’re missing more than one tooth, ask how implants can function as anchors to secure and stabilize bridges and dentures.

Home Hardware rental shop opens in Renfrew Anyone looking for rental equipment for their own work needs around the house or for business needs, they need go no further than Home. Renfrew Home Hardware has expanded its services to include a rental shop. Rental shop manager Steve Ride and second-in-command Brett Oake will be pleased to help you with your rental needs. “It’s a project (Home Hardware owners) Steve and Karen (Maxwell) have been working on

for nine or 10 months that has come to fruition,” Ride said. “It’s a good fit with the main store.” All the equipment in the rental shop is brand name – Honda, Stihl and Hilti, to name three – and is well inspected after each rental. “Our fleet is revised and updated weekly,” Ride said. “You can rent for a day, a week, a month, and some equipment you can rent for an hour. “We cater to everybody from the cottager to the contractor,” Ride pointed out. If there is a request for a piece of equipment not in stock, the store will look into purchasing

it, if feasible. Oake noted that one piece of equipment not in the shop had two rental requests just in the past couple of weeks. The rental shop is open seven days a week, and Home Hardware will provide delivery service six days a week. The only non-delivery day is Sunday. The

rental shop opens at 7 a.m. weekdays, 8 a.m. Saturdays, and 10 a.m. on Sundays. The addition of the rental shop will create four jobs at the locally owned and operated store, Karen Maxwell noted. “We have three people now (Ride, Oake and university student Andrew Hagerman) and we

will be adding a part-timer.” “The expansion is good for our business,” Maxwell added. It also provides one-stop shopping. Someone buying hardwood flooring could rent the nail gun to put it down, she added as an example. “We have the storage space. It made sense to convert it.”

Renfrew’s Jason Walters off to Vasteras, Sweden PETER CLARK peter.clark@metroland.com

The next stop in Jason Walters’ hockey playing career will be Vasteras, Sweden. The former captain of the Pembroke Lumber Kings and Albany-N.Y.-area school Union College Dutchmen sniper has been enjoying some downtime at home in Renfrew, but the days are going fast. “I leave for Vasteras (Sweden), about an hour west of Stockholm, on the 25th of July. It’s going quick. It’ll be here before I know it,” Walters observed. While he hasn’t been to the home of his Sweden-based team, Walters doesn’t expect too much difficulty in making the adjustment.

“We have five Canadians on the team, two imports (Walters and one other Canadian) and three others with duo citizenship. We are all living in the same building. It’ll be good to have some Canadian content around there.” TOP UNION SCORER Walters became the Union Dutchmen’s all-time leading scorer with 115 points (42 goals, 73 assists), cracking the old barrier of 114 points established by Jordan Webb, who finished his college hockey career in 2005. However, Walters expects former linemate Adam Presizniuk to set a new team plateau soon. “It’s nice to have it for the time being,” Walters said of the

school points record. The Dutchmen enjoyed their best regular season ever in men’s hockey, and posted their finest playoff run in the school’s Division 1 history when they reached the final before losing 30 to Cornell. HOCKEY ALLSVENSKAN Walters’ Vasteras team plays a 54-game schedule in a 14-team Hockey Allsvenskan loop starting Sept. 15. The league is Sweden’s second tier. Training camp gets underway Aug. 1 while pre-season action starts Aug. 8. A date on the calendar the 24year-old Renfrew native looks forward to is Aug. 13, a charity encounter against National

Hockey League players from Sweden organized by Peter Forsberg, a hockey idol for Walters when he was growing up. Walters will be wearing his familiar No. 9 when he suits up with Vasteras. “They asked me what sweater number I wanted. When I told them number nine, they told me, ‘The last guy to wear number nine was Nicklas Lidstrom.’” The long-time Detroit Red Wings defenceman played for Vasteras IK for the better part of three seasons in the late 1980s and 1990-91, and again during the NHL shutdown portion of the 1994-95 season. Walters took the pressure of the sweater number in stride. “It’s a little scary. I’ll try my Jason Walters will be suiting up in Vasteras, Sweden in 2010-11. best.”

A triple-play save for Expos I’m on holidays and, as a result, Peter’s Putterings will be put on hold for the next couple of weeks. However, I do have the answer for last week’s quiz question, the Montreal Expo relief pitcher who got the opposition to hit into a triple play on the first pitch he threw upon entering the game. It was Mike Marshall in June of 1973. Marshall entered the game in the seventh with the bases loaded and the Expos leading the San Diego Padres 3-1. Jerry Morales grounded Marshall’s first pitch to second baseman Ron Hunt. Hunt flipped the ball to shortstop Tom

PETER CLARK PETER’S PUTTERINGS Foli covering second, who then threw to Mike Jorgensen at first base. One run scored, but Jorgensen alertly threw home to catcher John Boccabella to cut down the potential tying run at the plate. The Expos went on to win 3-2. I remember it like it was yesterday.

Vooght reached for his driver to start the 10th hole, and moments later his tee shot found the cup from 265 yards away. “I didn’t know where the ball was until we looked in the hole,” Vooght recalled. “I couldn’t believe it. I cried a little,” he added. He’s smiling now.

He was joined by father Ambrose Adamchick, and two other Lake Dore golfers. “We saw it go straight, straight, and then roll up and go in,” Ambrose Adamchick said of Tom’s Trevor Vooght holds up the ball shot. “It’s good to be with your with which he made his shot of a son to see something like that.” lifetime.

It was likely a once-in-a-lifetime meeting for 17year-old Private Adam Campbell. The Renfrew teenager, a bagpiper with the Cameron Highlanders of Ottawa, was among several dozen members of the primary reserve unit to exchange conversation with Prince Phillip during a gathering at Rideau Hall June 30. Queen Elizabeth and her 89-year-old husband were in the spotlight in Canada for about two weeks. But Campbell says he’ll particularly remember speaking directly to a member of the monarchy, for the first time, after having the Highlanders’ regimental photo taken with their colonel-and-chief, Prince Phillip himself. The prince also insisted on speaking to each member of the unit. He did so after the reserve was broken into smaller groups of nine or 10 members. “He asked me what I was doing at school and I told him of my recent graduation (from Grade 12 at Renfrew Collegiate Institute),” said Campbell. As a member of the 144-year-old Cameron Highlanders, he said he’ll appear in other high-profile events down the road. However, this might have been his first and last meeting with a member of the British monarchy. “It was very high profile, and I was pleased with the way I was able to conduct myself,” said the son of Colin and Lynne Campbell. “And I got to meet some other people in the reserve that I hadn’t met.” After meeting with Prince Phillip, the Cameron Highlanders of Ottawa marched and played for about 20 minutes on or near the grounds of Rideau Hall. Rain dampened the last few minutes of the march before they boarded a bus to return to home base. Campbell, who turned 18 July 4, plans to continue his musical involvement. Those plans include performing with the ceremonial guard on Parliament Hill next summer.

We couldn’t have done it without the support of the community, the radio stations, the local newspapers, and the staff of McNab/Braeside. With our sincere thanks, Neil Stewart, Chair McNab/Braeside Disaster Relief Committee 402126

Eastern phoebes have begun their second nesting Ross and Judy McEwen sent us this email regarding the phoebes’ second nesting. Our phoebe family at our out-building is into their second nesting of the summer. I was considering that if the chicks do not get any water all their water sources must be through the juicy insects they are fed. They do not have their eyes open yet. They remind me of Muppets from Sesame Street. Judy and Ross If you have eastern phoebe nesting on your property you must completely destroy the first nest before the female gets a chance to lay her second clutch of eggs. The phoebes are hosts to a number of bird insects. It is, therefore, not enough to destroy the nest because she will simply gather up all the material and rebuild it, insects and all. The second brood will inherit the vermin which can threaten their lives. We burn the nests to ensure the insects are destroyed.

SCENE FROM THE HAWK’S EYE

MANY NESTINGS ON CAMPBELL PROPERTY Cathy and Remick Campbell have had many successful bird nestings on their property in the Township of Admaston/ Bromley: eastern bluebird, eastern phoebe, chipping sparrow, American robin, cedar waxwing, song sparrow, brown thrasher, American kestrel, house wren and mourning dove have all nested and fledged young successfully. Cathy says there are other pairs of birds in the area but she has not been able to find the nests. She says a male scarlet tanager sings continually but there is no indication that he has a mate or a nest has been built. She also says that many nests have been raided and the young taken. Ravens, crows, jays and grackles are the most destructive. However, to them it is just another source of food for their young. At this time of year they are all feeding young and the larger the species the more food the young require.

KEEPING THE MARAUDERS AT BAY THE LAST OF THE WRENS

ONE SMALL STEP

If ravens, crows, jays and grackles are destroying the nests of small birds near your property there are some steps you can take to keep them at bay. The first step is to stop feeding sunflower seeds at this time of year. The seeds are one of the best food sources for crows, jays and grackles. The birds arrive for the seed and remain to nest and when their young need food they raid the nests of smaller birds. Avoid feeding bread or pastries as these too are favourites and will attract the thieves. Observe any nests from some distance away with binoculars. If you go to the nest and you cause the birds to leave this will be seen by a raven that may be hiding in a tree close by. As soon as you leave the raven will raid the nest.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has decided to ban the use of the insecticide endosulfan. Endosulfan is severely restricted in Canada and the cam-

We received a note from Bob Carbino with pictures showing the last of the house wrens to leave the nest box near the Cabrino home. The young usually hatch all in the one day and are brooded by the female. Both parents feed the young although at first the male will not enter the box but will pass food to the female and she will feed the young. Later in the nestling phase the male will enter and feed the young. After about 16 or 17 days the young (usually five or six) are ready to leave the nest but remain with the parents for another 14 days. House wrens have two broods each nesting season.

Always drive with caution and watch out for wildlife on area highways and biways.

JIM FERGUSON paign is on to get the federal government to ban it completely. Already banned in 60 countries, the product has been found to pose reproductive and neurological risks to birds, other wildlife, and humans. Birds and other wildlife are also at risk when consuming insects that have been exposed to the pesticide. Endosulfan is the last of the organochlorine pesticides (such as DDT, dieldrin, and chlordane) to be used in the United States. The toxic pesticide has been used on cotton, vegetables, fruits, ornamental shrubs, trees, and plants.

Once again, the Town of Renfrew will be conducting drinking water sampling and testing for lead to comply with Ontario Regulations. The town is seeking volunteer test sites in single family homes, multi-unit buildings, commercial properties, and industrial properties. Under the provincial legislation, the municipality must test the drinking water for lead at 40 private residences, 4 non-private residences, between June 15, 2010 and October 15, 2010. • Tests would be performed at older residences suspected of having lead pipes or pipes with lead solder. • Homes built before the mid-1950s could have lead pipes. • Lead solder was used to join copper pipes and was phased out in the late 1980s; any new construction done after those years should not be affected by lead in the piping system. Since the Town must access homes to test for the presence of lead, we are looking for volunteers to allow the Town of Renfrew staff access to their homes to collect samples. There will be NO charge to the resident for the testing of the lead sample. Each sample will total three litres in each location and the regulations obligate the town to advise tenants of the test results as soon as they are available. The higher risk individuals affected by lead that exceeds the standards are pregnant women, infants and children under the age of 6 years old. The Town will require permission of the property owner to take the samples. If you wish to be added to the list of potential test sites please contact the Development and Works Department, Municipal Garage, Darl Gaudette at 613-432-4147.

The Renfrew Lions Club held its annual President’s Night at the Dragonfly Golf Links June 25. The club handed out its service awards and inducted a new member. Claude Laperriere, regional supervisor of volunteer resources for Canadian Blood Services, was on hand to honour the local Lions with a special volunteer award commemorating 50 years of sponsoring and operating blood donor clinics. “You are a very special club for me personally,” Laperriere said. “You are the longest serving club across Canada (at blood donors clinics), over 50 years,” she added while presenting a certificate to president Bob Boyer. Reuben Raymond received this year’s Lion of the Year award. “(Reuben) is available for just about anything at anytime,” Boyer said. The Helen Keller Fellowship Award goes to a Lion stepping above and beyond the call of duty, and the 2010 recipient was Randy Godin. “He goes about his work day in and day out, year in year out, unassuming,” Boyer observed. “He’s always there when we need him, and he lives the far-

Since then, fellow Masonic lodge members and motorcyclists have organized the event as the Carmen Greer Memorial Ride. Proceeds from the July 24 Cobden poker run go to the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario. A total of $35,000 has been raised for CHEO since the motorcycle ride began about 20 years ago. The ride’s co-organizers are Linda and Dale Jackson of Cobden. Each bike or biker will be supplied a poker hand and a number of business cards in the area. Stops at the businesses will enable participants to collect more cards. First prize is $300. Registration takes place Saturday, July 24 between 8 and 11 a.m. at the Cobden Masonic Lodge, 15 Astrolabe Road.

Problem Gambling Prevention Week was celebrated across the province recently. According to the Responsible Gambling Council (RGC), there are a number of gambling blind spots and behaviors that, if left unchecked and ignored, may lead to a problem. “RGC research shows that an estimated 26,300 people in Ottawa and the Counties of Renfrew, Prescott and Russell are experiencing a moderate to severe gambling problem,” explains CEO Jon Kelly of the Responsible

Gambling Council. “A gambling problem isn’t something that suddenly appears,” he says. “There are usually early warning signs that can tip you off to a potential problem. We want people to check their blind spot now--to avoid a problem in the future.” People in the community can access problem gambling resources, find out about events in their community and look for potential gambling blind spots at www.checkyourblindspot.ca.

A touch of Jamaica

TENDER CALL RENFREW COUNTY HOUSING CORPORATION

STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com

Sugar and bananas are the superstars of Jamaica’s agriculture industry. But, when it comes to finding work, about 6,000 Jamaicans still come to Canada every year because there isn’t enough farming income at home. About 85 per cent come to Ontario, and businesses such as McGregor’s Produce in McNab-Braeside Township, where co-owner Jim McGregor has hired Jamaicans through the Jamaican Liaison Service for four years. It’s no wonder they’re coming to Canada, given many Jamaicans reportedly make less than $500 a year working at home. The 2009 recession hit North America hard, but it may have hit such Third-World countries as Jamaica even harder. Therefore, the popularity of Canada’s Jamaican Liaison Service, which began in 1966, may continue to grow. “We tried to depend on local labour,” said McGregor. But there wasn’t enough local interest to do all the work required on the McGregor’s Produce crop acreage of about 100 acres. The advent of Jamaican workers was fuelled by the departure of a hard-working Canadian couple at McGregor’s. “We had a couple five years ago that were really good workers,” he recalls. “But they decided to go west (where the oil industry was thriving).” Their departure left the business shorthanded, but Jim and sons Cameron and Ian had talked about hiring offshore labour for a few years. As it turns out, the Jamaican Liaison Service had been directing seasonal workers into Canada since 1966 for work in the tobacco or horticultural industries. McGregor’s Produce began back in 1979. But expansion over the last few years − with more satellite stands and sales at farmers’ markets and the new Taste of the Valley events − has coincided with the need for more workers. Larkland Stone, the Jamaican Liaison Service’s chief liaison officer in Toronto, says he doesn’t know if Jamaicans earn substantially more in Canada than back home. But he acknowledges it’s more. Jim McGregor’s says 10 Jamaicans now work for McGregor’s Produce. Most of them make slightly more than minimum wage, but the Jamaicans can earn more from “piece” wages when picking larger quantities of strawberries, sweet corn and beans. McGregor’s Produce also pays for the Jamaicans’ flights to and from Canada, and their accommodation. The Jamaicans are good, steady workers who mix well with other workers on the farm, including the 15 local university or college students, says McGregor. “In general, they’re a happy lot.” One of the Jamaicans, who has been an annual fixture at McGregor’s, is Denvil Anderson, 48.

Kenneth Wiltshire’s bean-stalk hat reduces his chances of wilting while picking beans at McGregor’s Produce. He and fellow Jamaican workers find the recent heat wave oppressive, in comparison to the hot, but much less humid, weather back in Jamaica. Mercury photos by Steve Newman He used to work in the tobacco industry, in southwestern Ontario, until that industry’s prominence was lost as the government pushed other crops on Canadian soil. A Canadian job became even more important after his other job, at a large aluminum mill in Jamaica, disappeared with the closing of the mill. At McGregor’s he picks and plants crops in addition to working as the Jamaican group’s supervisor. A key to being hired is hand size, says Anderson. Bigger hands mean you can pick more, says the married man of three kids. A resident of St. Elizabeth in central Jamaica, he says it’s hard being away from home for so long. “She’s getting used to that,” he says of wife Rose Marie. “But you have to put food on the table. Most of the factories are closing down, so most people are losing their jobs.” Anderson, like several of the Jamaicans working at McGregor’s, also make ends meet with a small farm operation back home. His produces beans, sweet peppers and a few other crops. ‘THEY GET A LOT DONE’ “They don’t rip and tear the way I used to, but they get a lot done,” says McGregor of the Jamaicans, “ Their presence has also brought a sense of internationalism to the place. “You learn about their culture,” he says. Depending on the Jamaican, they work two to six months for McGregor’s Produce before flying back home. “It’s really worked out well for us,” says McGregor. “(The arrangement has) allowed us to expand our operations, so we can bring a lot of fresh produce to the communities in the Valley.” Dyane Gordon, who has a small farm of goats and pigs in Jamaica, says the work days can be tiring. So the 32-year-

old, in his fourth year at McGregor’s, often returns at night to the Renfrew Inn Suites to relax in front of the TV. “Sometimes I want to just go and lie right down,” he says. WONDERING ABOUT THE WEATHER

“Sometimes the weather only (I don’t like),” he adds. “But the people are sort of friendly. One or two people were maybe not friendly.” Sebastien Marshall, 25, also has a small farm in Jamaica, but he’s in Canada to help support his girlfriend and daughter. Working in Canada for the first time, he says, “It’s all right, nice country and so on.” The best thing about Canada is the work, he says. But he finds the weather “kind of hot” because of the higher humidity. Based on his headwear, Kenneth Wiltshire, 32, has a similar view. He wears a sun hat and towel around his neck, while a group of bean stocks surround his head. But Wiltshire, who tends to sing while he works, isn’t complaining. He says it’s been an awesome experience working in Canada. “It’s good, I’ve met so many nice people here.”

NEWS

Is there giant hogweed in your backyard? If so, call the invasive species hotline STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com

County of Renfrew forestry manager Jeff Muzzi has been inundated with calls after his office reported the arrival of giant hogweed plants in late June. The first confirmed sighting of the dangerous, invasive species happened in Laurentian Valley Township June 28, at which time Muzzi’s department warned area residents about its dangers. These include severe blistering and blindness. A second confirmed sighting of the plant occurred in Whitewater Region Township last week, says Muzzi. “The media has just been fantastic. It’s really raised awareness,” said Muzzi about the local arrival of the plant, which is more common in southern Ontario. Muzzi is now directing calls on possible sightings to the invasive species hotline hosted by the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters, in conjunction with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources. That number is 1-800-563-7711.

Muzzi says digital photos of giant hogweed plants will be verified within two days. Meanwhile, the forestry manager says the plant is just like its name − giant. “It’s giant in every way, shape and form, from being tall, to its wide leaves and its thick stem,” said Muzzi. Another tell-tale sign that it is giant hogweed, aside from standing as tall as six metres (or 20 feet), is the purplish blotches or purple striping on the main stem. As already reported, Renfrew County forestry services says an effective way for controlling the invasive, dangerous plant is to cut off its flowering heads, seal them inside plastic bags and leave them in the sun to die. The county also stresses the need to wear protective clothing and eyewear if working around the plant. Also, skin contact with soiled clothing or tools should be avoided.

Barnet comfort station near completion PETER CLARK peter.clark@metroland.com

The Calabogie Lions Club is close to completing its latest project, the comfort station on the Barnet Property off Calabogie Lake. The comfort station is located near the highway at the front of the Barnet property. There are still a few items that

need to be attended to before the station can be used. “It is something that was required. Before, we had an outhouse, which wasn’t very pleasant,” noted property chairman Lion Don Swift. “(The comfort station) can also be used in the wintertime for snowmobilers.” The station has two fully equipped washrooms with run-

ning water and flush toilets and will be heated in the colder months. President Lion John Bonnar introduced Bohden Tymchuk to the Lions Club. The Queen’s University student and graduate of St. Joseph’s Catholic High School will be assisting the Lions at the Barnet property throughout the summer months.

Bluegrass fans flock to Johnston farm LUCY HASS

lucy.hass@metroland.com

In 1969, Max Yasgur’s 600-acre dairy farm in New York State solidified its place in rock music history for the pilgrimage it was. Today, Bob and Julie Johnston’s farm in Horton Township has become an important touchstone to bluegrass fans. Attendance held steady this year at the 2010 Valley Bluegrasss Festival despite the hot weather. Music fans from Canada and the U.S. made their way to the Castleford Road festival. Among them, seated at the foot of the stage, were bluegrass fans Bill and Bonnie Maxwell. After living 20 years in the Boston, Massachusetts area, the Ottawa-area couple moved back to Canada and settled in Springtown. They have attended the Horton bluegrass festival for the past three years. Bill described the Johnston farm

festival as the ‘best’ show around and said he’s surprised it doesn’t receive a higher profile on the city music scene. Those who know about the festival just keep coming back, and host Bob Johnston says the glowing testimonials have been many, from some of the finest people in the world of bluegrass, like musician Leon Morris. The festival is made possible through countless volunteer hours, and support from the local business community. Johnston has high praise for the amazing team of volunteers who rally every year to help stage the event. This year he also appreciated the town of Renfrew making a dumping station available for trailers, and for welcoming signage to the festival. Medical first response was provided by St. John Ambulance Renfrew 331 Division. Net proceeds from the event Bill and Bonnie Maxwell are all set to go to Renfrew Victoria Hospital and enjoy what they call ‘the best’ bluegrass Hospice Renfrew. show around.

COLUMNS

Freshly laid hard-boiled eggs are impossible to peel I have to chuckle every time I read about the growth in interest in backyard chickens for city folks. I’m sure we will continue to see news stories advocating laying hens be allowed to live in urban areas. City councils of Toronto, London and St. Catharines are being requested to consider motions to allow folks to raise a few birds. No meat birds and no roosters. They are the ones doing all the noise making and crowing. Vancouver is on the verge of passing a bylaw that will permit residents to raise a maximum of four hens – no roosters – in their backyard. That’s what has me chuckling. Do people know how much

MAYNARD VAN DER GALIEN RURAL ROUTES they’ll be shelling out for readyto-lay-pullets? They are over $10 a bird. You can buy any amount – even one or two – but you’re going to pay extra for them. If you buy through a dealer, there’s freight and there’s a small-order charge. The small-order charge is more than the cost of a bird, according to my research. Calgary and Edmonton have approved pilot projects for urban hens. Brampton, Niagara Falls and Guelph already allow backyard hens – no roosters.

What really gets me clucking are backyard hen advocates who praise the idea because folks can get their eggs fresh daily. They say the eggs are so much better tasting and are so much healthier than the “factory farm” eggs. Did you know it’s impossible to peel a freshly laid hard-boiled egg? It’s almost impossible to peel a hard-boiled egg that’s a few days old. The shell sticks on and only comes off with egg on it. Eggs that are a week or two

old peel perfectly. So if you need a few eggs for your fresh garden salad, don’t go out looking for a “just laid fresh egg”. I had flocks of 25 laying hens. Eggs that are a little older – three or four days – are much better tasting. The advocates are right when they say hens will eat almost any table scraps – except orange, lemon and grapefruit peelings. What they’re not telling you is if the hens do not get enough calcium, they will lay thin-shelled

Legion 148 needs your help ROBERT ST. MICHAEL Public Relations Officer

The community has always supported the Renfrew Legion, Branch 148. We are now in the position of having to once again rely on your generosity. We need major repairs to our building and in order to achieve this goal, we are hosting a Parking Lot Party fundraiser Friday, July 23. There will be some awesome entertainment starting at 4 p.m. with the Renfrew County Fiddlers, Branch 148, Dennis Meilleur, the Debenhams and special guests. Admission is $5 per person. There will be a barbecue and Denny’s Fries on site. Please, no minors after 7 p.m. The Legion would very much

appreciate your help in helping us support the community. In other Legion news, the Legion citizenship awards were presented to Brandon Mousseau and Regan Miller of Our Lady of Fatima School for their high standards of school and community spirit. Branch 148 presented 10 branch bursaries to eligible students graduating from St. Joseph’s High and Renfrew Collegiate. A citizenship award was also presented at Central Public School. The second annual Dave Palfreyman memorial golf tournament will be held Sept. 4 at the Dragonfly golf course. It is always a fun time.

JUDY EWART Seniors Home Support

We are very fortunate here in the Ottawa Valley to live in a caring community. Whenever people are in need, individuals, businesses, service clubs and organizations rise to the challenge to ensure that funds and gifts-inkind are available for assistance. With so many agencies and service providers now required to raise a portion of their budget, the continued response of our community to help meet these financial goals is gratifying. Service agencies play a vital role in our community ensuring that basic needs are met and help is there when needed. Many of these service providers have been in existence for a number of years and have gone about their work quietly, operating on limited budgets with small staffs and many volunteers. Donations can come in many forms – financial, in-kind gifts

Community always rises to challenge and time. Financial gifts help to ensure that the required funds are there to allow the operation to keep providing essential services. In-kind gifts assist agencies to receive services/equipment/supplies that they might otherwise not be able to afford. The gift of time which volunteers give to organizations is priceless. Without volunteers many service providers would not be able to provide the level of service that they currently do. Renfrew and Area Seniors’ Home Support is one of many service providers who benefit from the generosity of our community. With so many worthwhile organizations to choose from, we are truly grateful to everyone who chooses to support our Home Support. To our community and all the individuals who support our organization, thank you for your gifts of time and money. We could not provide the level of service we do without you.

eggs that are prone to breaking. If the hen gets a taste of the egg, she will eat the egg and will be picking with her beak to get it to break. Laying hens need a grain ration and they need oyster shell. Hens love eggs, too. So you want to keep the shells hard. My breakfast always includes an egg. I love eggs, especially a soft-boiled one on bread. I cut off the top quarter of the egg with a knife. I can tell you more about raising eggs, but I’m out of space.

She purchased her machine, face mask and all of the necessary supplies at RVH Sleep Products. “It has worked perfectly,” she says, adding. “I have more energy and I’m feeling a lot better.” Timmons appreciates the convenience of shopping in Renfrew, noting that it saves her money and time. “I can combine it with my grocery shopping or banking,” she says, explaining

The anniversary sale the week of July 19 will offer a 15% discount on all products. VISA, American Express, Mastercard and debit card service is available.

Each week we feature animals from the Arnprior and District Humane Society that are up for adoption. # 3717 and 3734 These 12-week-old female and male kittens are very playful, curious and active. Cameo and Dodger were both brought to the shelter to find great homes. Cameo is very affectionate and outgoing - she is a social butterfly. Dodger is a little shy at first but warms up quickly. Both kittens are good with other cats and are litter trained. Please consider adopting one of these sweet little kittens. # 3710 Henry Do you have room in your home and heart for large and affectionate Henry? He is a four-yearold neutered male who was brought to the shelter in May as a stray. Henry is an outgoing, talkative cat who is easy to handle. He is not an active cat - he prefers to sit in a cat bed and take everything in. Henry tolerates other cats but prefers his own space. Supplies the shelter needs: bleach (desperately), paper towels, liquid laundry soap, and canned dog food.

July 15, 2010 - The Renfrew Mercury

Anyone who suffers from a sleep disorder will agree that a good night’s sleep is cause for celebration. Next week, RVH Sleep Products will be celebrating a full year of helping local customers get the sleep they need. The sales office was officially opened in July 2009 as an extension of Renfrew Victoria Hospital’s professional sleep services. “Under the leadership of Dr. Judith Leech, who is extremely well-respected in the field, we have been providing specialized care for people with sleep disorders for more than 12 years,” explains RVH CEO Randy Penney. “Our sleep lab serves people throughout eastern Ontario, and extending our service from diagnosis right through to providing the right equipment made perfect sense.” The sales service also creates a new revenue stream for the hospital, helping to diversify funding sources to protect the high quality of hospital services the people of Renfrew and area have come to expect.

that the only other sleep product vendors are as far away as Ottawa or Pembroke. Leclaire hopes that next week’s anniversary celebration will get the word out to area residents who may not be aware of the RVH service. “You don’t need a medical referral or to be a patient of the RVH sleep lab,” she explains. “We can meet the needs of anyone who uses C.P.A.P.” RVH Sleep Products carries a full range of sleep apnea equipment, including C.P.A.P. machines, masks, filters, tubing, cleansers, lotions and pillows. All of the leading brands are sold at competitive prices.

THEATRE

Legend of Gram Parsons in Eganville July 21 A theatrical concert about Gram Parsons, the original cosmic cowboy who lived fast and died young, comes to town on Wednesday, July 21, thanks to Stone Fence Theatre. The music show, which insiders describe as the “hot show of the year,” most recently played to a sold-out audience at the Ottawa Cisco Bluesfest and to an enthusiastic reception at Hugh’s Room in Toronto. Grievous Angel: The Legend of Gram Parsons was inspired by Ottawa writer Michael Bate’s interview with the doomed singer/ songwriter in Boston in March, 1973. Sadly, it turned out to be Parson’s last recorded conversation, as he OD’d six months later. Bizarrely, his body disappeared and was cremated, according to his wishes, at Cap Rock, California. Stone Fence Theatre is bringing the show to Eganville as part of a series of special summer events that complement its theatrical season. “It’s a show that Valley music fans will love,” says the company’s producer, Ish Theilheimer. “It played to full houses and standing ovations in Wakefield and Almonte, where we saw it. It features some of the Valley’s top musicians in a unique musical play that will really get people talking.”

Although his name isn’t well known, his recordings with groups like the Byrds and the Flying Burrito Brothers shaped the sound of country and rock music. The show’s music is instantly recognizable to music fans. Bate’s musical play stars upand-coming young Ottawa actor/singer/musician Anders Drerup as Parsons. He tells about his life and his music, and explains what drove him to go out in a haze of glory in a cheap motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, nearly 40 years ago. The monologues and music are woven together to create a compelling portrait of one of the most influential artists of his generation, the patron saint of alt.country and Americana. The musical score is by Gram Parsons, the Rolling Stones, Hank Williams, the Louvin Brothers, Chris Hillman, Chris Etheridge, Merle Haggard, Bob Dylan, Dan Penn, Elvis Presley, Ric Grech and Bob Buchanan. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, July 21 at the Eagle’s Nest in the Eganville Community Centre, 178 Jane St. Tickets cost $25 and are available, with reserve seating, by phone at 613-757-1001 or toll-free 1-866 310 1004.

Kelly Prescott and Anders Drerup star as Emmy Lou Harris and Gram Parsons in Grievous Angel. In back is Tom Martel on drums.

Mac’s Melodiers zippier and zanier Stone Fence Theatre is remounting one of its most popular shows this year and making it even more fast-paced and hilarious than before. July 22 marks the opening of an eightshow supper theatre run of On the Air with Mac’s Melodiers, the Ottawa Valley heritage theatre company’s recreation of a 1950s Mac Beattie radio show. Mac’s Melodiers, known for its zany, fast-paced comedy and lively Ottawa Valley music, has more energy than ever this year. Complementing co-stars Ambrose Mullin (Valley Vic), John Haslam (Jackie) and Ken Ramsden (Charlie Chamberpot), hilarious and musically-gifted Maureen McCoy returns to the Stone Fence stage as Valley Vic’s over-eager studio assistant. On any given night, anything can happen between these four. Also new this year is the array of personalities who will be popping in and appearing at the show. Guests like Dai Bassett (the Singing Farmer), Roddy McCann (Yes, he’s in the building), Barney McCaffrey (Ottawa Valley singing storyteller), (Pontiac County songstress) Debbie Bechamp, and the Peter Dawson Show (which includes the entire

family of the popular Ottawa Valley fiddler who has played all over the world) will be appearing. The band in this year’s edition is hotter than ever. Stephen Helferty plays pedal steel, in memory of former Mac Beattie friend and associate and charter Stone Fence Theatre performer Al Utronki, who died last winter. Carleton Place jazz professional Peter Brown will be playing Jimmy Mayhew’s part on piano. Last year in Country Sparkin’ at Sunnydale Acres, Peter fell in love with country music, and he’s eager to return to wow audiences again. Robin Pinkerton returns to the Stone Fence stage for the first time since he became a father, as drummer, and Pam Ogelsby plays standup bass and sings. The popular Helferty sisters of Douglas sing and dance, and Stone Fence Theatre producer Ish Theilheimer is musical and stage director and fiddler. With the death of its beloved business manager Joe Murray this year, Stone Fence Theatre has had to shorten its season this year, so there will be only eight performances. See STONE FENCE, Page 45

“The idea behind the game is to keep children and family reading through the summer.” So says Susan Klinck, Renfrew Public Library’s children’s librarian during the kick-off of the TD Summer Reading Program, whose 2010 theme is Destination Jungle. A few dozen children appeared for the June 19 kick-off. Special summer activities are planned for the children’s section of the library Monday to Friday from 11 a.m. to noon, through until late August. However, children can visit the library at other times to play the game board, Destination Jungle, which is set up in the basement as part of the children’s section. It’s a forested game board whose stops include Treats from the Rain Forest, Keep the Snake Growing, and the Tree Frog Making Station. “As kids read books, they move spaces on the gameboard,” explained Klinck. “And the big thing is they get to plot their own reading strategy. Instead of rolling dice they use their reading log sheet to advance in the game.” One hundred and seventy-four participated in the program last year, and Klinck expects a similar number this year, with about 140 registered by early July. One of the visiting parents on opening day was Mike Adrain. “I like it because it’s a chance for family to be together and to grow together,” he said. More than 1,700 children in the area have library cards at the Renfrew library. The library is open Monday through Thursday from 10:30 a.m. to 8 p.m., Friday 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. The library is closed Sunday.

1. Change to Fluorescent Bulbs - If every house in Canada changed all of the light bulbs in their house, that would be equivalent to taking one million cars off the streets. 2. Don’t Rinse - Skip rinsing your plates before putting them into the dishwasher. In average you will save 15 gallons of water per load. Plus, you will save time. 3. Hang Outside to Dry - Get a clothes line or rack to dry your clothes. Your clothes will last longer and you will save money 4. Turn off computers at night - don’t just put them to sleep. You will save an average of 4 cents a day which ads up to $14.60 a year. 5. Use Both Sides of Paper - if you have a printer with a double sided print option use it. You will save half of the amount of paper you would have normally used. Then when you’re done bring it to the recycle bin. 6. Get rid of baths - Don’t take baths, take showers. You will in average save about half the amount of water that you would if you were taking a bath. 7. Don’t get bottled water - Instead of bottled water get a reusable container to carry water. Also you can get a filter to make your home tap taste more like bottled water. It is definitely more cost efficient. 8. Turn the water off when you brush - Your parents have said this before. You will save 4 gallons of water doing this alone. 9. Shorten your shower - Every minute you cut from your shower is roughly 5 gallons of water. The less time your shower takes, the lower your impact on the environment. 10. Recycle Glass - If you do not recycle this, it will take a million years to decompose. 11. Don’t Pre-Heat the Oven - unless needed, just turn the oven on after you put the dish in it. Also, to see if it’s finished just look through the glass instead of opening it. 12. Use Warm or Cold Setting on Washer - instead of the hot cycle use the warm or cold setting. This will save a lot of energy a year. 13. Turn Down your Thermostat - Every degree lower in the winter or higher in the summer you put it is a 10% decrease on your energy bill. 14. Turn off your lights - An easy one. Turn off your lights when you are not using them. The benefits are obvious. 15. Get rid of junk mail - There are many services that can help you get rid of junk mail. That will lead to a lot less trees being cut down to take up room in your mailbox. 16. Use Matches instead of lighters - Lighters are usually considered disposable so they will most likely end up in land fills. You can use the cardboard matches which are much more eco-friendly because they are made of recycled material. 17. Don’t get a paper phone book - Instead of getting a paper phone book. Use a online directory instead. 18. Give things away - Take things that you are not going to wear or use and give it to a charity or someone who will use it. 19. Go to a car wash - Going to a car wash is a lot more water efficient then washing your car at home. 20. Stop paper bank statements - Why waste paper getting your bank statement mailed to you when you can just check it out online. 21. Buy Rechargeable Batteries - Even though it will take a good investment to buy these you will find yourself gaining it back in no time. 22. Pay your Bills Online - If every house in Canada did this then we would save 18 million trees every year. 23. Get a reusable bag - You can’t recycle plastic bags, instead get yourself a reusable bag so that you won’t have to worry about carrying your necessities. 24. Do Errands in Bulk - Make a list of the things you have to do, and see if you can fit a couple of those things together in one ride. 25. Inflate your Tires - If your tires are inflated at all times your car will run more miles on less gas. 26. Wrap Presents Creatively - Without going out to get wrapping paper you can use newspaper, an old map, or anything else. It would look a whole lot more creative. 27. Plant a Tree - It’s good for the air, can keep you cool, and can increase your property value. 28. Buy Local Produce - Consider how much energy it takes for produce from china or any other country to come here. If you have the option to buy local, do it. 29. Walk or Ride Your Bike When you can - If you have to go somewhere close consider riding your bike or walking there instead of your car. It’s better on the environment and healthier.

MC - Swimming is a popular pastime when it is hot outside -- providing good exercise and keeping you cool. However, on average 4,000 water-related injuries occur every year. Many of them are related to swimming and boating. One in four fatal drownings is a child under the age of 14.

Swim in safe areas only. It’s a good idea to swim only in places that are supervised by a lifeguard. Swimming in an open body of water is different from swimming in a pool. You need more energy to handle the currents and other conditions. Don’t panic and don’t fight the current. Swim with the current, gradually trying to make your way back to shore as you do so. * Remove enticing toys. Children may be drawn to floats or toys remaining in a pool. Take them out of the water when the pool is not being used.

* Learn CPR. If a person does become injured in a pool, prompt commencement of CPR can help clear the airways and revive an individual. Sign up for a class in your area. * Prevent falls around the pool. Encourage swimmers to walk around the pool perimeter, not run. Otherwise they could trip and fall.

* Be careful at the Water Park. OK, so you do more splashing than swimming, but it’s just as important to know your skill level at the water park as it is at the pool. Take a moment to read warnings and other signs.

Even non-fatal drownings can be dangerous. Brain damage can occur from when a person is denied oxygen for prolonged periods. That is why pool safety should be an utmost priority this season.

* Turn off the pump. Injuries have occurred across the country when children get stuck to filter intake sources. While many of these injuries occurred in larger, commercial pools, accidents can still occur at home. Turn off the filter for safety’s sake when the pool is in use.
