George Jackson Toyota owners Dave and Warren La Rocque have drawn their line in the political sand. They have offered $500 contributions, which is below the $750 limit allowable under the Ontario Municipal Act, to four candidates seeking berths on Renfrew council. The offer is being made to each and every candidate who is not currently sitting on council, say the La Rocques. Three of them accepted the offers, according to Dave La Rocque − councillor-candidates Doug Janney, Jim Miller and Clint McWhirter. Callum Scott, who is a candidate for mayor, turned down the offer. “As far as I’m concerned, for all politicians there are rules and regulations for accepting donations, and as long as you abide by those regulations (that’s okay),” said Janney. “Even money you put in yourself you have to account for,” added Janney. “As someone running for councillor, it’s going to cost me $400 for printing, $300 to $400 to mail out flyers, and it would benefit to have help on the costs.” Miller, who (like Janney) decided to enter before the George Jackson Toyota contributions were offered, said he’d didn’t solicit the money.

TURNING POINT Rob Warren sends this four-wood from 200 yards into a hazard on the 16th hole. Warren led the Renfrew Golf Club men’s championships at that point, but his mishit resulted in a double-bogey six. That gave Stephen Dowd the lead for good, as Warren fell just short in his bid for an 11th men’s title. For details, see Page 12. Mercury photo by Steve Newman

Each Renfrew candidate NOT on council offered $500 for election campaign From front page “I only want to contribute to the town. Whether people want to contribute to their (candidates’) campaigns, that’s up to them.” Miller also says he’s among the candidates who might help a stalled council. “They are stalled, so let’s move them along,” he said. Scott turned down the offer from Warren La Rocque without hesitation, even though he says he doesn’t approve of the way town council has treated George Jackson Toyota. “I basically said thank you, but no thank you,” said Scott. If he should be so fortunate to be elected mayor, Scott says it would probably always be in the back of taxpayers’ minds why he was making certain business decisions, especially if they affected the local Toyota firm. “I wouldn’t take money from anyone ….,” said Scott. ‘NO HIDDEN AGENDA’ Dave La Rocque says there’s no hidden agenda behind the campaign contributions. “I just want to encourage people to go into municipal politics … if anyone’s running (who’s not now on council) I want to help them out a bit. And I think we need some fresh faces with a different approach to everything.” George Jackson Toyota is pulling up roots and expanding its small quarters at the north-east end of town to Horton Township. They’re hoping to be in business in the new quarters by the New

Year. “I have absolutely no animosity toward the existing council, but we definitely need some fresh faces. We need a changing of the guard. “I’m the kind of guy who doesn’t cry over spilt milk. I move on.” But the reality of the situation, adds Dave, is that council is stale. The George Jackson situation isn’t an isolated example, either, he says. An example of being “major league stale” when it comes to handling business matters effectively, he adds, is the longstanding impasse between the town and

businessman Murray Sullivan. They came to terms after a nearly seven-year impasse. “The citizens of Renfrew lost out, and I honestly think the Town of Renfrew ‘fathers’ could have addressed it (sooner),” said Dave. “In our particular situation, there could have been much more awareness of the current economic situation. We have a small community that’s hurting, and I feel the current council has alienated themselves from the needs of the ratepayers who voted them in.” The $500 offer has been made to every candidate not on council, said La Rocque. “If they didn’t contact us, we contacted them.” The George Jackson Toyota owners have decided they would make contributions to a maximum total of $5,000. “We feel it’s a good asset to encourage people,” added Dave. “There are no strings attached, none. Just run, give it a shot. If you get elected, do your best.” - With files from John Carter

Time to take next political step, says Coun. Kelly STEVE NEWMAN

steve.newman@metroland.com

Jack Kelly says he doesn’t see issues that will separate candidates in the upcoming Admaston-Bromley municipal election. In fact, he says: “I don’t see any issues in this election. “I think Admaston-Bromley has been well represented and well served by the council that is there.” However, he hopes his tenure as council’s longest-standing member carries some weight, especially if he faces an opponent. At this writing, incumbent Mayor Raye-Anne Briscoe, 67, remained undecided if she is running for another term as mayor, but admitted she’ll likely seek another term. With or without Briscoe as an opponent, Kelly figured it was time to take the next step after 19 years in municipal politics. With his decision to run for mayor, he brings strong opinions on land management and provincial government fund-

For councillors, that may happen again. For mayor, Kelly may face a battle with one of the most visible politicians in the county. “Raye-Anne (Briscoe) is extremely knowledgeable. There’s no doubt about it,” says Kelly. “She’s knowledgeable and well known, and that’s important when you’re in municipal politics.” See POSITIVE, Page 22

Pratt to run for Greater Madawaska council position john.carter@metroland.com

John Pratt

Incumbent councillor John Pratt will run again for a spot on Greater Madawaska council. However, he’s keeping his options open until early September when he’ll decide whether he’ll run for reeve or Ward One (Calabogie area) councillor. Pratt, who has served one term on council, said Monday that he will run on five major issues. His top priority is to “give seasonal ratepayers a break.” Council needs to come up with a long overdue plan to assist the cottagers, many of whom have been affected by substantial assessment increases to their

properties, he noted. He said such a plan would “not cost a lot, but show the people some recognition.” He said such things as grading private roads occasionally and splitting the cost of gravel 50-50 could be instituted. Pratt’s second plank is to improve the township’s accountability for complaints. There needs to be a minimum 30-day staff response time, less when it’s urgent, he said. “Like the police, we need to get back to people (when there’s a complaint).” Pratt also wants to see council provide more encouragement and recognition for volunteers. “Some of them are getting very weary,” he said. “They need to

Pratt wants to promote a longterm plan to designate the K&P a heritage trail. With the help from funding from all levels of government, it could be protected as a four-season recreational trail from Kingston to Renfrew, he said. “I realize it will probably take seven or eight years, but I believe it’s doable. If we don’t do it, it could be gone and we won’t get it back.” Reeve Peter Emon is expected to run again for council’s top spot, but says he still hasn’t completely made up his mind.

know they are appreciated.” He also pledges to continue to explore ways to work with McNab-Braeside on sharing a recreation director so more emphasis can be put on recreation programs for youth in the township. Pratt also has two heritage initiatives in mind. He’d like to see a small museum built at Barnet Park to safely house the township’s historical items and documents. “We could take good ideas from Waba Cottage at White Lake,” he said. “They do a fantastic job.” Greater Madawaska needs to “capture its history … before it slips away,” he said.

MUNICIPAL ELECTION

Green seeking another term as Renfrew’s reeve STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com

Since 1972 there have been few years Audrey Green hasn’t sat on Renfrew council. And next year will be no different, if the veteran municipal politician defeats Councillor Kate Windle and anyone else who enters the race for reeve. “I don’t even refer to myself as a politician,” says Green. “I think it’s become a way of life … I think it’s taken a long time to get a tough enough skin to love this kind of life because, don’t kid yourself, you do live it.” She admits compliments are few and far between, but says it’s all about trying to make Renfrew a productive community. “When I can’t sleep I’ll get out, but I haven’t reached that day,” says Green, whose husband John retired in 1989 and died the same year. The 70-something reeve − and mother of four adult-age children whom she calls her “good strong supporters” − says she’s glad to seek another term of of-

ice Visneskie, Tammy Stewart and Mary Campbell, and 11 male county councillors, she says: “It’s a completely changed world. My name isn’t Mrs. John Green any more. It’s Audrey Green.” Those female members are also active and prominent, especially Visneskie, Briscoe and Aikens with committee chairships.

fice. “I’m still the same person I was. Politics has not gone to my head. I’m still me. You can talk to me.” And, besides, should she lose, she says she will always have a Plan B. Green, who calls herself one of the instigators of the Renfrew industrial park in the mid 1980s, says government grants were helpful in getting that park going. But she says the park really evolved into a commercial area that today contains such mainstays as Wal-Mart, Canadian Tire and No Frills.

TOYOTA SITUATION

MUDSLINGING CAMPAIGN After losing a mudslinging race for mayor in 1992 to Howie Haramis, Green didn’t run for council again until the late 1990s, when she was elected reeve. She has remained reeve since then and the town’s representative on county council. Today, Green is one of six female Renfrew County councillors, but she vividly remembers what she was told when she be-

Audrey Green came the one and only female on county council in 1974. “I was told I could go home and get my cheque every month because the men certainly knew what they were doing,” she recalls. Now joined on council by Ann Aikens, Raye-Anne Briscoe, Jan-

In her own backyard, Green acknowledges Renfrew council has faced recent challenges, like the impending departure of George Jackson Toyota after balking at a $1.5 million, then a reduced $750,000, security deposit to expand its business in the town’s southeastern corridor. After the company’s move to Horton, where a new business site is now being prepared, Green concludes: “I’ve learned that this should never happen again … so it’s not an embarrassment to both parties. “With Renfrew, we’re still a very small community,” adds Green.

“But I can’t, or don’t, ever want us becoming an overflowing city. And we never will because we’re surrounded by Horton and Admaston-Bromley. But I think we could do a better job to let ourselves be better known to the rest of the world. “We have to develop some kind of project that is continual,” adds Green, who says she has one in mind, but for privacy reasons can’t say what that is right now. Meanwhile, she says the town’s new master plan for recreation and culture should help. “I feel there are many things (other than just the pool) that we have classified and identified as important, and started. She also remains closely linked to heritage issues. A past president of Heritage Renfrew, she and Councillor Tom Anderson will bring recommendations forward to council this fall to enhance how the town deals with heritage issues. Away from council, she loves cats, is an avid reader, and enjoys fishing and swimming at her cottage and oil painting.

Canteen contract for Berube

Mercury photo by Steve Newman

SUMMER STUDENT-EMPLOYEES Meet several of the town’s summer-student employees. Introduced at the July 12 Renfrew town council meeting, each was presented with a town pin. From left are Andrew Green, Spencer Warren, Melissa Whalen, Katelynn Black, Danny Lennie, Mayor Sandi Heins, Stephanie Logan, Emily Mann, Jessica Smith, Brooke McWhirter and Blair McCulloch. About 15 summer students are working at the library, or with parks and recreation, development and works and the treasury department. Grant assistance from the federal and provincial governments has facilitated their hiring. Mayor Heins says the summer hirings offer “an opportunity for various departments to do some projects.” Examples are day camp, the household hazardous waste program and tourism information.

After working at the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre canteen for 12 years, Nicole Berube has a threeyear contract to run the canteen. Previously paid an hourly wage, she will now pay rent to run the canteen year-round. “It’s a combination of sporadic results with canteen sales and staffing issues,” says recreation director KelleyWhitman-McKie of the town’s move to the new contract. “It’s an opportunity to try something different.” The contract calls for Berube to pay $6,000 for rent in the first year, $6,120 the second year and $6,240 the third year, in addition to applicable taxes. The contract takes effect Sept. 1, 2010. Town council unanimously approved the contract Monday (Aug. 16) after council and staff entertained proposals from Berube, and another from Brent Sylvester, Dustin Zohr and Paul Sylvester who have experience as managers and cooks. The tenant holds exclusive rights to sell refreshments, food and drink in the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre, home to hockey, skating and ringette at the rink level and a wide variety of uses upstairs.

No rental party shall be allowed to serve food in the lobby without the consent of the town and in consultation with Berube. The town, as landlord,

is to keep in working order the microwave oven, hot dog roller, pizza warmer, popcorn maker, deep fryer and upright freezer. See CANTEEN, Page 8

LETTER

A line in the sand

A whole lot of hog

No question about it, George Jackson Toyota owners Dave and Warren La Rocque have drawn their line in the local political sand. They have offered, and will continue to offer, $500 contributions to each candidate for Renfrew council, with one particular stipulation: They must not currently sit on council. They say fresh blood is needed, so they want to encourage those very candidates. To date, three of four candidates, Doug Janney, Clint McWhirter and Jim Miller, have accepted the campaign contributions. Mayoral candidate Callum Scott has not because he says any future decisions, should he be elected, could be clouded by George Jackson Toyota’s contribution ... at least in the eyes of taxpayers. To some, the donations may smack of partisan politics. But when is politics not partisan? You pick a candidate. Or you support certain issues and see who backs those issues with logic, imagination and truthfulness. The La Rocques say they don’t bear a grudge. As Dave puts it: it’s time to move on, no matter who you think was right in the handling of the George Jackson Toyota expansion that ended up going to Horton when Renfrew council couldn’t find a way to keep the business here. The $500 isn’t a lot, considering Renfrew’s mayoral candidates can spend up to $12,860 and councillor candidates up to $10,360. But the La Rocques’ contributions sure make the election race a whole lot more interesting.

To the media, Just a note to say thanks for the excellent coverage you gave to the occurrences of giant hogweed in Renfrew County and other parts of Ontario. I believe you saved many people a trip to their local hospital’s emergency department, and gave many others an explanation for injuries that they had previously sustained, not realizing that they had been exposed to hogweed or wild parsnip. The media coverage has definitely stopped the spread of giant hogweed here in our county, and probably in other parts of the province as well. An added bonus is you’ve raised the question of who should be dealing with invasive species, and how much of an economic, health and environmental impact they are having on our province. See THANKS, Page 22

Nurse practioner-led clinic application now complete To the editor: It’s off ! The Ministry of Health and Long Term Care has received Bonnechere Health Centre’s application for a nurse practitioner-led clinic, all 50-plus pages made up of 26 pages of application plus more than 30 pages of supporting documents. There are a many individuals and organizations that deserve thanks. Thanks to our committee members who chipped in to make this application a success. Special thanks to Preston O’Grady who spent countless hours (days) putting the package together and carrying out other duties so the package is arranged in a manner that is understandable. Preston has already received complimentary remarks from the Ministry of Health and they are going to use our application as a bench mark for other applicants.

Thanks again, Preston, for a very professional job. If our application is successful, the nurse practitioner-led clinic will provide much needed primary health care to our community. It is based on the premise that individuals are entitled to “the right care, at the right place, at the right time.” In addition to primary health care, the application also contains a wellness component. This component is designed to encourage a healthier life style for residents of our community. ACCORDING TO STATS CANADA According to Statistics Canada and the Champlain Local Health Integration Network, the population health indicators for Renfrew County demonstrate high prevalence rates for hypertension, diabetes, and obesity.

Mercury Mercur y The Renfrew

These statistics, combined with a high percentage of seniors, result in greater demand on and utilization of health services. To that end, we will offer diabetes education, cardiovascular awareness, chronic disease self-management and geriatric safe home programs. This is a total community project. Thanks go out to all the organization and individuals who have provided letters of support to this project. Special thanks to St. Francis Memorial Hospital in Barry’s Buy, Pembroke Regional Hospital, and Renfrew Victoria Hospital who have given their unequivocal support. Also special thanks to a local entrepreneur who has offered to build a 4,000- to 5,000-square-foot clinic in our community if we are allocated funding for a clinic. We still have Dr. Good’s former office for

immediate occupancy; however, a new clinic is required for long-term plans. No clinic can operate without professional people. Special thanks to the three nurse practitioners who have indicated their intent to practice or offer their services in our community, the doctors who have volunteered to act as consults to the nurse practitioners. Other professionals are expected to include, a nurse, a physiotherapist, a dietitian, an administrator and two administrative assistants. Also, special thanks go to our MPP John Yakabuski who is putting his support behind our application. Now we wait.

HERITAGE

Brydges laces up for New South Wales AUGUST 15, 1919 LOCALS: The water is very low in the Bonnechere River at present, lower, in fact it is said than it has been for the past seven or eight years. Last week some young men down the river found the waters so low that they had no difficulty in crossing the stream without wetting their feet by simply stepping from stone to stone in the bed of the river. – Mr. and Mrs. A. Ritza and their daughter Anne left last week on a short visit to friends at Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., and to their son Alex at Dover, Ont. – Mrs F.M. Devine and Mrs. McDermott spent last week with the Misses Mackay at the latter’s summer home “Mauds Camp” Calabogie. TICKETS ISSUED: The following tickets were issued by Mr. James Clark to homeseekers and others for the west last week. Mrs. Wm. Watson and Miss Agnes Ferguson, who have been visiting Mrs. Alex McLaughlin, to Calgary, Cecil Humphries, Misses Mary and Margaret Gillespie, Wm. McNevin, Mrs. Frank Gibson and Miss Jessie, Donald McCallum, Wm. Thom, Allen Ferguson, George Easton, Rudolph Thom, Ida Hanneman, John Quast, Thomas Coumbes, Henry Webster, C.A. Somer, John Arthur, F. Gemmille, Frank Delway, Clifton Robertson, Lloyd Courtryman, Fred Seimanting, Ivan St George and William Cham-

bers. Tickets were also issued to Miss Rachel Knight to Boston, Mass., and to Mr. Thomas Halliday to Vancouver on Tuesday last. AUGUST 15 , 1935 FINE SOCIAL EVENT AT RENFREW GOLF CLUB: The first of a series of dances to be given by the membership committee of the Renfrew Golf Club was held at the club on Friday evening last. Upwards of 50 couples were present and enjoying the dancing to the music provided by the Ernest Ready orchestra. The fine large club room was beautifully decorated with flowers and vari colored streamers. The membership committee is headed by Mr. J.J. Southern and he was assisted in the arrangements by Messrs. H.D. Ferguson and A.W. O’Connor. Refreshments were served at 11:30 by the club steward and stewardess Mr. and Mrs. Litky. RENFREW MASONIC LODGE IN LODGE PICNIC: Members of the Renfrew Masonic Lodge, some of them accompanied by “better halves” and

children met on Wednesday afternoon in a second annual picnic, with the Ferguson grove on the banks of Chats Lake as the scene. There was an attendance of about 200, inclusive of the occupants of children’s shelter, none enjoying the outing more. Footraces and softball games formed part of the sports. Four motor boats were available to those wishing for a cruise on the Ottawa. With plenty of refreshments and good management the outing was highly enjoyable to both adults and juveniles. AUGUST 12 , 1970 PLAYS HOCKEY IN AUSTRALIA: Most of the players on the New South Wales state hockey team are from Canada, and one is even from Renfrew. Barry Brydges, a Grade 13 graduate from Renfrew Collegiate Institute and a former member of the Renfrew Lions junior hockey team, is currently a member of the New South Wales state hockey team. He will be playing in the Australian championships A hockey tournament to be held in Melbourne this month. A former employee of the Renfrew Aircraft and Engineering Company here in Renfrew, Barry is presently employed in Sydney, Australia by the New South Wales Government Printing Bureau.

Limit some social housing to seniors, say county councillors Stack and Green john.carter@metroland.com

Arnprior Reeve Walter Stack said he and Renfrew Reeve Audrey Green are promoting a move that would designate some social housing complexes strictly for seniors.

The two reeves will bring a motion to that effect to Renfrew County council’s Aug. 25 meeting. It will ask municipalities to lobby the province to relax the policy dictating social housing developments be open to all. Stack said that because of “real legitimate concerns” about

safety and other issues, it is appropriate for some units to be for seniors only. Green has expressed sympathy for efforts by seniors living in the social housing complex at

His father was Roy Taggart, who lived in Renfrew from 1946 until his death in 1997. Taggart says his dad was a life member of the Renfrew Royal Canadian Legion and the last living charter member of 433 (Champlain) wing of the Air Force Association of Canada. Taggart lived in Renfrew until 1958.

First Renfrew Golf Club titles to Dowd and Lacroix STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com

Most players were talking about how the weather threatened to highjack the second round of the Renfrew Golf Championships Sunday. But when it came down to it, the onagain, off-again rain, high winds and high humidity challenged the players to gain control of their games. Several did, including Stephen Dowd of Arnprior and Cindy Lacroix of Ottawa with their first-ever men’s and women’s titles at the Renfrew Golf Club. “I’ve never played in such extreme con-

ditions,” said player Margaret Agnew. “It was crazy. If it wasn’t raining, it was windy or it was hot.” The rain subsided later into the final round, when the rain stayed away until moments after the gripping men’s title was decided. Rob Warren was seeking his 11th Renfrew Golf Club men’s championship, but the 16th hole was his undoing. He hit his second shot, a four-wood from 200 yards on the par-four, into the hazard and emerged with a double-bogey six. Warren led by two shots, only to take a four-putt, triple-bogey on the 10th to square the match. “I don’t know the last time I four-putted,” said Warren. However, the 10-time club champion regained the lead with a birdie on the 13th after hitting an eight-iron within seven feet. Then came the two-shot swing in Dowd’s favour on the 16th. Dowd avoided a tie for first by chipping from the edge of the 16th green and sinking a four-foot putt. DELICATE 12-FOOTER

It appeared Dowd might be caught when he left his tee-shot below the green on the par-three 17th, but he salvaged a par with a delicate downhill 12-footer. Warren just missed a makeable birdie to remain one stroke back. Both men birdied the downhill par-five 18th that was playing only 440 yards to leave Dowdwith his first-ever Renfrew Golf Club title, but hardly his first men’s title. Dowd, who turned 54 Sunday, has also won titles with clubs in Hamilton, Peterborough, Dartmouth, and Beloeil, Que. Dowd and Warren both hit second shots on the 18th to the back of the green. Facing delicate downhill chips, Dowd hit within four feet and sank his birdie putt, after Warren made his from about 12 feet.

After finishing second three times in the men’s championship, Dowd said, “We didn’t even know if we were going to play today (Sunday), so that was a little nervewracking.” In the end, Dowd said putting was key.

“I made a lot of clutch, par putts.” He also won against a regular playing partner.. “Rob is a tremendous competitor,” said the new champion. See RENFREW, Page 19

COLUMN

Entertaining mid-season run There has been some interesting baseball turned in by the Toronto Blue Jays this summer, particulary over the past couple of weeks. There was catcher J.P. Arencibia’s incredible debut Aug. 7. He became the first player since 1900 to have four hits and two home runs in his first game. And the next day, Brandon Morrow missed out on a no-hitter by one batter but struck out 17 in a 1-0 win. The Blue Jays also lead the world in home runs with 182 entering Tuesday night’s action, paced by Jose Bautista who is closing in on 40. Unfortunately, despite all of this, the Blue Jays hover 9-10 games behind the wild card leader. As the case has been since Joe Carter’s World Series-winning three-run shot in 1993, there will be no meaningful baseball again in September. But if the Blue Jays can keep most of this nucleus together, perhaps hopes of regaining some glory may be not too far down the road. Who makes the schedule? Hamilton and Winnipeg have already completed their four-game regular-season series, and it’s only seven weeks into the 2010 CFL season.

Wolves general manager Brent Sylvester can be reached for more details at 613-432-7572. The Wolves have pre-season games against the Stittsville Royals Thursday, Sept. 2 and Shawville, Tuesday, Sept. 7 at the MAC. Both are 8 p.m. starts. The 2010-11 regular season opens Sunday, Sept. 12 (after the fair). The Wolves host the Perth Blue Wings at 7 p.m. * * * Jim Thome of the Minnesota Twins is second among active Major League players, now with 580 home runs. I wonder if ESPN will do live cuts-ins of every Thome at-bat, the way they did with ARod when the Yankees third-baseman sat on 599. And for this week: Name two active players who have a World Series ring with both the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox.

The junior tour featured four events – played at Greyhawk, Mississippi, Canadian Golf and Country Club, and the Carleton Golf & Yacht Club since June 30 – before Friday’s finale. Three Dragonfly juniors made their presence felt. Cooper Brown finished in a two-way tie for fourth place in the boys 14-16 age division on championship day, and captured the overall hardware for total points over the five tournaments, based on the best three scores. His performance was highlight-

Renfrew Golf Club crowns champions From Page 12 “He (Warren) never gives up. You have to fight him to the end.” Looking on were other contenders for the men’s title, Roger Iob of Renfrew and Stephane Pare, 15, of Fort-Coulonge. By day’s end, Dowd was the winner with a three-over score of 74-71−145. Warren was 146 after sharing the first-day lead with Iob at 72. Iob emerged third in 148 and Pare fourth at 150. The B division title of the championship, sponsored by Ottawa Valley Physiotherapy, went to Donald Carty at 79-79 − 158 to win by a single stroke over Dave Hall, Ken Koops, Andy Oliver and Kip Mulvihill. Sean Miller’s 80-82 − 162 took the C division, while John David captured the D division with a 179 off rounds of 84 and 95. WOMEN’S CHAMPION In the decade she has played the game, this is her best, says 2010 women’s champion Cindy Lacroix. “I’m putting well this year. I haven’t played as much this year, but I’m playing better. It’s all coming together.” The weather gods didn’t co-operate, but Lacroix said she likes playing in unfavourable conditions. On the par-five 10th, with the rain holding off, Lacroix’s twostroke lead jumped to four when MacNeil double-bogeyed to Lacroix’s par.. “She played terrific,” said MacNeil after Lacroix won by three strokes with a 79-84 −163 on the par-72 layout. “She played steady. She was in the zone. She deserved to win.” Lacroix says she has never won a club golf championship before, but says that’s not why she plays the game in Renfrew. “This course and the people here (are the reason). “I couldn’t care if I won. “It’s always nice to win, but I’m competitive with myself, not against anyone else.” She also gives some of the credit for her game to her dad, who’s 75 and still playing. “He taught me,” she says. MacNeil took second place at 82-84 − 166, while the respective B and C division winners were Alex Legris (90-101 − 191) and Jacqui Guilbeault (100-110 − 210). Legris won by three shots over Anne-Marie Beanish-Millar and Kim Vandewouw.

Shields seeks re-election as public board trustee STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com

Dave Shields of Beachburg is seeking another term as trustee with the Renfrew County District School Board. He is the incumbent for the townships of Admaston-Bromley and Whitewater Region and therefore representative for Renfrew Collegiate Institute, Fellowes and Opeongo high schools, as well as elementary schools in Admaston-Bromley, Beachburg, Cobden and Westmeath. After 17 years as a trustee, the 64-year-old is seeking another term while stressing the need for more funding for special education, more technology training for teachers, and more nutritional information for students and parents. “We need a coordinated effort for advice on good nutrition and physical activity outside school,” said Shields. “I’ve seen enough poor health habits (among students).” He suggests a site, such as the Whitewater Health Centre in Beachburg, could play a coordinating role because obesity, diabetes and cancer tend to stem from bad health habits. He says the Ministry of Health should also have a role to play in such a project. “There needs to be some collaboration,” said Shields. Elected board vice-chair in 2005 and 2006, he was the chair in 2007 and 2008. Starting in 1984, Shields was a trustee for nine years. He returned to serve as a trustee in

2002 and has remained on the school board since then. He now chairs the budget and finance committees, sits on all

Serving 26 years on the Renfrew County District Catholic School Board, including seven terms as chairman, has not dimmed Andy Bray’s enthusiasm for the role. “I’m enjoying it and think it’s worthwhile work,” said Bray, who has filed his papers to again run to represent Arnprior, McNabBraeside and Greater Madawaska on the board. “I think I’ve still got something to offer. I like the people I’m working with and I like representing the people,” he

But he says his role with OPSBA “positions me to lobby the provincial government to revise the funding model for special

education.” He says the problem is “shared by most boards in the province and is an OPSBA priority.”

Dave Shields major committees, and is part of ad hoc committees for character education, information technology and communications, and the director’s review committee. Also, in June 2010 he was elected eastern regional vicepresident of the Ontario Public School Board Association (OPSBA).

said. Bray, who lives in Braeside, said he is particularly proud of his work in encouraging the forming of school councils before it became mandatory. “We saw that it was coming, so we took the initiative and went ahead with them,” he said, adding it is gratifying to see parental involvement in the school system. He chaired the committee established in the early 1990s to set up school councils and continues to play an active role in the committee that ensures board and parent council communication remains strong.

He said he feels a good trustee should be involved in all issues coming before the board. In that vein, he prefers to chair ad-hoc committees, leaving newer trustees to gain experience chairing the board’s major committees. He says he is proud of the successes of local schools, particularly in the improvements in literacy. Schools such as John XXIII and St. Joseph’s are “doing great things,” he said. Bray has also served as a director of the Ontario Catholic School Trustees Association for the past three years.

MUNICIPAL ELECTION

Johnston, Kennedy join Greater Madawaska Ward One council race JOHN CARTER john.carter@metroland.com

There will be an election race in Greater Madawaska Township, at least in Ward one (Calabogie area). First-time candidates Vincent Johnston and Donna Marie Kennedy have joined Marie Buscomb in the contest for the two Ward One councillor positions. Kennedy is a retired teacher and former president of the Ontario English Catholic Teachers Association (OECTA). Johnston operated Renfrew Auto Sales for more than 20 years and recently began a career in real estate sales with Century 21 Eady Realty in Renfrew. A Calabogie Lions Club mem-

ber, he has served in various executive positions. Kennedy’s family has been summering in the area for 60 years. After retiring three years, ago, she moved to the township permanently, living along the K&P Trail in the Barryvale area. She has taught in such diverse communities as Toronto, Ottawa and Maynooth. As well as teaching special education students, she has served on the board of the L’Arche organization in Arnprior. Heading up the 35,000-member OECTA for four years gave her experience in the workings and politics of organizations that she’d like to put to good use serving on council, she said. Kennedy said she’s learned that cooperation and good-will are both nec-

McGarry seeks to succeed Ryan in Ward 2 JOHN CARTER john.carter@metroland.com

With sitting councillor Tom Ryan indicating he’s not running again for the Ward 2 (Brougham) seat on Greater Madawaska council, his cousin has entered the race. Michael McGarry has filed his papers to run for council in the Oct. 25 election. The Mount St. Patrick resident said he’d like to carry on with things Ryan started. “There’s always room for improvement, but

generally I like the way things are going,” he said. McGarry said he wants to keep taxes low, bring high-speed Internet to the Brougham area and continue on with the landfill transformations, which he says are working well. He said he was raised by Ryan’s parents, so “he’s like a brother to me.” McGarry was a steam-fitter who worked in the Ottawa area for years and was a member of the United Association of Plumbers and Pipefitters.

Thanks for the exposure From Page 6 Perhaps this will stir the provincial or federal government to action — a lack of a strategy, and the lack of a level of government being responsible for invasive species is a glaring omission in this province right now. I think we have something in the neighbourhood of 185 invasive species in the Great Lakes basin alone. Now, if only we could get you all interested in using wood to produce energy instead of solar or wind. Thanks again.

Common nighthawks gather to feed at Mount St. Patrick

Shelley O’Nanski saw a Common Loon in the creek in Ferguslea. The bird was very likely fishing for minnows, snails or grayfish. It is unusual for a loon, a rather large bird, to be seen in a small creek where it cannot become airborne and walking is not one of their best skills. Ten or 11 weeks must pass after hatching before the young can fly from their home lake although they have been known to walk from their home lake to a larger lake. When home lakes begin to freeze over both

Shane, Andrea and Jack Cruise and Mack Bruce spent a week at a cottage on Prince Edward Island. One fraction of the interesting wildlife they saw was a flock of 30 Great Blue Herons that came to feed on the shore when the tide was going out. Jack said the birds fed on anything that moved: snails, crabs, shrimps and sand worms. The birds did not come ashore but remained in the shallow water to feed. The birds that feed along the ocean shore generally do not migrate preferring to remain where the food is abundant rather than move to an unknown territory. When land birds like the Great Blue Heron partake of salt water animals they ingest a certain amount of sea salt which makes its way into the blood stream. To balance the salt content in the blood, nature has provided the birds with salt glands that are located just above the eyes. The salty solution from the glands is drained from the body through the nose. It is not clear whether the herons and other land birds take in enough salt to activate their salt glands, which are normally inactive. However, the glands are available if needed. Ravens and crows are now gathering each evening into their fall roosts. Rather than stay in a breeding territory all barriers are gone and the birds range over a wide area in search of food. Their noisy gatherings came be heard far and wide. As is our request every year, we would like to know of any roosts you see. The birds forage for food dur-

A flock of about 15 common nighthawks (once called mosquito hawks of the nightjar family) were heard hunting for insects during the evening of August 10th, 2010 at Jack and Jane Clark’s cottage on Mount St Patrick. The clouds were lower than the surrounding hills but the birds could still be heard making a loud, “booming” sound as they dove through the air. The “booming” sound is made as air passes swiftly through the bird’s wing and tail feathers. It is believed the sound is part of the courtship display and continues throughout the nesting season and during migration. Margaret Robertson saw several nighthawks “hawking” or catching insects in the early evening this past week in Renfrew. She described the birds as flying with great agility, dipping and weaving in every direction as they hunted for flying insects. The analysis of the stomach contents has shown that in a single day one nighthawk captured over 500 mosquitoes and another ate 2100 flying ants. During flight the very sensitive whiskers that surround the wide, flat mouth direct insects into the bird’s gape. The tragedy of the situation is that these very efficient insect eaters are on the decline due mainly to loss of habitat and the use of insecticides on their wintering grounds in Mexico and Central America. At one time the birds could be heard “booming” during early summer evenings over town and country. Now they are silent.

HERITAGE

Basement wonders at mill museum MICHAEL BRADLEY McDougall Mill Museum

As you may already know, McDougall Mill Museum has three floors chalked full of artifacts. The basement in particular is a regular eye-spy of equipment and tools from all across Renfrew’s history. The water ram, for instance, is a small, circular, iron artefact about the size of a football that many may not notice. The water ram is actually a very useful device for pumping water. It is set at least three feet below the water and the flow of the water forces the intake valve to close, creating high pressure. This pressure forces water into the air chamber where it compresses the air and then forces the water down a delivery pipe and out into the storage tank. Our water ram is in good condition and is a must see in the basement. Some other commonly overlooked artifacts from the basement are the handcar and velocipede. The handcar, which you may recognize from old Roadrunner and Wiley Coyote cartoons, is used for moving on railway lines. It is powered by a large handle in the middle of the cart which is pumped by a person on either side to keep the car moving. The velocipede is really just a large bicycle adapted for riding on rails, which requires the rider to push and pull a handle in front of them while pushing with their feet as well to power the gears. One display in the basement that steals a lot of attention is our dairy display. Renfrew and area has a rich history in the dairy industry which attracts a lot of visitors to the museum to learn more about it. The display includes old photographs, milk jugs, cream separators, butter churners, milk cans and much more. In the basement we have many industrial atifacts, tools, and old mechanisms. Whether it is the water ram, velocipede, or dairy display, something is guaranteed to catch your eye.

New starting age for 4-H club members The Ontario 4-H Council’s board of directors has voted in favour of lowering the starting age of 4-H members to nine years of age. The change, from age 10, is based on a member’s age prior to Jan. 1 of the year the member joins. This policy amendment will become effective as of Jan. 1,

2011. Ontario 4-H Council president Shonna Ward says “this policy change allows the council to address three goals with the first being synergy with 4-H delivery partners across Canada. Second, enabling younger siblings of current members to join sooner, and third, supporting communities throughout Ontario with a

younger entry point to outstanding youth leadership development opportunities.” Concurrent with this announcement is the launch of an 18-month pilot project, Clover Buds. During this pilot, the staff of 4-H Ontario will be identifying and selecting six six- to eight-year-olds. With existing programs located in other provinces and the U.S. to mentor from, it is time for 4-H Ontario to launch and evaluate this alternate program option.

2015 will mark the 100th anniversary of 4-H in Ontario and the public is urged to come and explore. 4-H is looking for volunteers to run clubs in their own communities. Call 1-877-410-6748. 4-H is an organization of leaders building leaders. Nearly 6,000 youth ages 10-21 years, and a grassroots network of 1,800 trained, screened volunteers pledge their Head, Heart, Hands and Health as members of community-based clubs.

Touring so much more meaningful when you know the crops and cattle Last month my wife and I went on a one-day sightseeing bus tour of Prince Edward County. We love going on sightseeing excursions. I came to realize that you get a lot more out of a tour when you know what the crops are growing in the fields. Three people on the bus asked me the name of the crop with the little round leaves. They had no idea it was soybeans. Soybeans are a legume plant that produces a bean pod. Everyone knows what a corn plant looks like. There’s noth-

MAYNARD VAN DER GALIEN RURAL ROUTES ing similar to it. Even though oats, barley and wheat have been growing in Ontario for a few hundred years, most nonfarmers can’t tell the difference. That’s my observation. Most urban folks don’t know the name of the breed of cattle they see, or the name of the trees they drive by year after year.

That’s why I get more out of outings and bus tours than urban folks do. I see what’s growing and what is changing in the countryside. When we toured Prince Edward County during haying season, I did not see any automatic or manual stookers behind square balers. They are relics of the past like the mowers and steel-wheel hayloaders. Speaking of bus tours, the company we went with to the IPM at Earlton (northern Ont.) last September, sent us an invi-

tation to join them to this year’s plowing match at St. Thomas, Ont. on September 22-24. Going by bus is the way to go. Everything is organized for you. We are booked for a three-day bus outing to St. Jacobs, Ont. in September. My wife is excited about that trip. She’s not a fan of plowing matches like I am. Soon after we’re back we’re off to see California. We’ll be gone five weeks at least. I have always wanted to see California, especially the agricultural areas. It’s the number one ag-

ricultural state in the U.S., generating well over $35 billion in sales per year, rivaling Canada in terms of revenue generated from agriculture. California is also the number one dairy state in the U.S. We’ll visit the Napa Valley to see where the famous wines are made. We’re flying to B.C. to see family and friends, then driving along the coast through Washington, Oregon and California. Then on to Arizona and up to Utah, Wyoming, Idaho, Montana and back to B.C.

CD release party for Sing Me Back Home Aug. 25 in Ottawa Sing Me Back Home is Lorne Keogh’s new classic country compact disc. Son of Ronald and Rose Keogh of Allumette Island, he was born and raised in the Ottawa Valley, and is a long-time resident of Ottawa South whose lifetime love of classic country music is brought to the new album. An Ontario country music performer in clubs and bars in the 1960s, his guitar

followed him everywhere, including a stint in the Army in Europe, and travels to all corners of Canada. All of which makes the realization of Sing Me Back Home a long time coming, he says. Keogh is joined by a band of musicians from the Canadian music scene who include Sam Masterton (pedal steel), Mike Michakow (drums) and, perhaps most significantly, his two sons, Dave and Duane, who are

from EMI/Maximum Recording artists The Town Pants. “There’s a rustic sundown appeal and easy demeanor that Lorne Keogh captures on Sing Me Back Home — perhaps a testament to his past as a performer in the forgotten Canadian honky-tonks of the 60s,” says Aaron Chapman of the Vancouver Courier newspaper. The CD release party takes place Aug.

25, at Lone Star Café on 1211 Lemieux St., next to Ottawa’s Chimo Inn. Keogh and his band will perform songs from Sing Me Back Home. CDS will be available for purchase. They can also be ordered online at CD Baby or by contacting Doreen Keogh at 613-738-1811 or doreen.keogh@primus.ca. Net proceeds of CD sales will go to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

Lions to give thanks with free barbecue JOHN CARTER john.carter@metroland.com

The Calabogie Lions are showing their appreciation for the strong public support given to their many projects by holding a free community barbecue Sunday, Aug. 22. The event, complete with entertainment, will run from 1 to 7 p.m. at Barnet Park. All Greater Madawaska township residents are invited. “It will be a real family event,” said Lions president John Bonnar. “And it’s going to be a free day.” “We want to thank you all for being such a great community,” said Lion John Buscomb.

He said the public has helped the club in many ways from donating to fundraisers and attending its bingos to putting floats in the Santa parade. There will be chicken, hamburgers and hot dogs on the barbecue. Entertainers will include Mac McCallum and Friends, Julie Larocque, step dancers, and gospel singers. A number of Calabogie area artists will display their works. There will be several activities for children, including a jumping pad, slide, scavenger hunt, games, face-painting and treats. “Come on down and bring you lawn chair,” said Buscomb. “Everything is free (other than the cash bar).”

THANK YOU Thank you to the people of Pembroke, Renfrew, Barry’s Bay, Killaloe, Beachburg, Golden Lake, Eganville, Arnprior, Petawawa, Deep River, Cobden, Combermere, Round Lake Centre, Palmer Rapids, Madawaska, Whitney and surrounding areas who generously donated to the 2010 Walk of Hope for Schizophrenia held on May 16 in Pembroke.

Jeffrey Roland Draper April 23, 1982 – July 26, 2010 We appreciate the overwhelming support, sympathy and strength we have received from family, friends and acquaintances which have helped us begin to cope with the tragic death of our Jeffrey. We thank everyone for prayers, visitation, donations, phone calls, flowers, cards, food and kind deeds. The doctors and nurses of the Ottawa Civic Hospital ICU were outstanding. The tender compassion of Jen, the representative of the Trillium Foundation was much appreciated. Renee Stewart’s provision of Gift of Life ribbons and pins was a comfort. We especially thank Rev. Jim Stevenson who was with us Sunday morning in the ICU. We appreciate Rev. Canon Roger Young of Emmanuel Anglican Church, Arnprior for his visits, phone calls and beautiful church service. Thank you Rev. Mavis Brownlee of St. Paul’s Shawville , for her phone call, prayers and attendance at the funeral service. To Eldon Smith and staff of Boyce Funeral Home, your professional calm attention to all details was exceptional. We thank pall bearers Ian Lawson, Allan Wilson, and Jeff’s cousins, Brent Draper, Matthew Schock, Chad Lucas and Luke Young. The ACW and members of Emmanuel Anglican Church were outstanding in their support and generous much appreciated luncheon after the service. Thank you to all who came to the cemetery in Shawville and to Haleigh’s aunt, Sue Moffat and Ryan Bayford for their music and songs. The evening of caring and sharing at the Arnprior Golf Club, in celebration of Jeffrey was something we will remember forever. The fireworks were a beautiful tribute with special thanks to Chris Nych, Patrick Nicholson and Allan Murray. Once again, Greig Burnie was super in catering to the Drapers! We were pleased to greet so many of Jeff’s friends, many of whom travelled long distances. There were school mates, team mates, U. of Guelph friends, co-workers from Aqua Terre Solutions and SNC Lavalin, and the members of KAK. Many were with us in strength from the beginning. This generation that grew up with the slogan “Just do it!” don’t waste time pondering “Should we or shouldn’t we?” They are remarkable men and women! Ian Lawson and Michelle Martineau opened their home and welcomed all of Jeffrey’s friends. We thank you for your exceptional kindness and generosity.

May God bless you all! Briana and Ashton 1745 Burnstown Road

I would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to all who shared my loss at the sudden passing of my sister Kim Knox (Twigger). A special thank you to my family and friends for their support of their kind words, phone calls, card and flowers which provided me with great comfort.

Suzanne Graham (Lafrance)

On July 19, 2010 our family home in Burnstown was destroyed by fire. With grateful hearts, we would like to thank the village and everyone else who has encouraged and supported us through this difficult time. Thank you to Crystal and Blair for calling 911 and looking after me until the Paramedics came. Thank you to Rob Dodge and his firefighters from Glasgow, Braeside and White Lake. They were so kind and calm. To Dave Herbert who had a truck running 4 minutes after the call – making it possible to salvage some family photos. Thank you to the Paramedics and the Renfrew Hospital for their excellent care. A special thank you to Stephen who organized a fundraising BBQ for us and to Cari and George for hosting it at their home. The clothing, cards and donations were overwhelming, but such a comfort when our life had just been turned upside down. We would also like to thank the Arnprior Lion’s Club and the Renfrew Salvation Army for their generous donations. Thank you to Karen Barsoski for answering every single question my 5 year old had during our Fire Debriefing meeting! Special thanks to my family who have shown love and extra grace to a daughter and grandson.

The Renfrew detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police responded to 231 calls for service during the past week. Of those, 54 were false or accidental 91-1 calls. Many times there appears to be a problem with the phone line, and if this is the case residents are urged to contact Bell Canada to repair the problem. Parents are also urged to place phones out of reach of young children to avoid having their children play with the phone. The police are obligated to attend any residence where a 9-1-1 call originates to ensure public safety. Please take care when dialing, to avoid an accidental 9-1-1 call. DRUG CHARGE On Sunday, Aug. 15 at 2:25 a.m. an in-

A mailbox on Queen’s Line in Whitewater Region was smashed overnight Aug. 14. There are no suspects in the case. Minor damage was done to a slide in Renfrew’s Kiwanis Park on Haig Ave. The damage was done overnight on Aug. 11. There are no suspects. Renfrew OPP officers responded to five

DOMESTIC DISPUTES Renfrew OPP officers also responded to three family disputes. One male was charged with two counts of assault and held in custody for a bail hearing.

If your information leads to an arrest or charge, you would earn a cash reward of up to $2,000 and never have to attend court as a witness.
