CLICKETY-THUMP To some, Terry Fox is a famous Canadian they saw on television and heard about. But one participant in the annual Terry Fox Run at St. Michael’s Catholic School in Douglas has an up-close, powerful image of Terry Fox that will stay with him forever.

When bylaw officer Angie Hein was sick earlier this year, the Town of Renfrew found it difficult enforcing parking infractions and dealing with animal complaints. She’s back on the job now, but town administration has since hired an additional part-time employee to improve the situation. Previously, Hein was on call 24 hours a day, but that has changed with the hiring of Stephanie Jacob of Braeside. Jacob, who already does some minimal part-time animal-control work for Horton Township, will be working 16 hours or more a week with Renfrew. See ENFORCEMENT, Page 2

Enforcement on unpaid fines forthcoming, says mayor Continued from front Jacob was also introduced during Renfrew’s Monday-night council meeting by Renfrew compensation revenue clerk Kelly Haskin. Hein’s temporary absence in early 2010, explained Haskin, “identified the need to have a backup available, even though we were lucky enough to utilize the services of Bonnechere Valley for animal control (for a while).” That didn’t address parking issues, such as enforcement and revenue collec-

tion from the meters. But that situation has changed with the hiring of Jacob, who started work with the town Aug. 31, 2010. For the next little while, Jacob may be working closer to 24 hours a week, as the town accelerates its tag program for local residents’ cats and dogs. At the same meeting, Coun. Bill Ringrose asked what was going to be done about unpaid parking fines. The summary of parking-meter revenue for the first eight months of the year

As for enforcement for parking infractions, that will require entering an agreement with the provincial offences office, said Mayor Sandi Heins. However, she said the town is “moving in that direction. If the status improved, we wouldn’t be moving in that direction, but (it is).” Mayor Heins added: “If you have it (a ticket) in your glove department, you might want to hustle on down here (to the municipal office to pay it) because it’s eventually going to catch up to you.”

shows revenue of $45,654, or on target for the year’s targeted revenue of $60,000. However, the town has collected less than half the revenue value from all ticketed parking infractions. Of the $12,753.50 in ticketed fines, a total of $5,445.50 had been paid by the end of August. About 60 per cent don’t pay their fines, acknowledged Haskin. But she said it is still encouraging that the $5,445.50 is higher than the fines paid each of the previous four years. The highest of the four years was $4,759 in 2009.

Renfrew’s quite an easy fit, says Slight STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com

In his first visit to town council since becoming the Renfrew OPP detachment’s new staff-sergeant in August, Colin Slight spoke Monday night about his return to Renfrew after spending two years as the staff-sergeant at the nearby Killaloe detachment. He laughed about how he went for a walk downtown the other day, only to take 40 minutes to get where he was going, because so many people stopped to talk to him. “Renfrew’s quite an easy fit (for me) and you know who to blame if it’s not an easy fit,” he said jestfully, while looking at council member Audrey Green. Back in 1982 she was the mayor and part of the hiring committee that selected Slight to join what was then Renfrew Police Services. In Monday’s brief presentation, he also spoke about what community members can do to minimize what has become known as granny frauds. They’re common to communities across Canada while taking various forms of telephone fraud. The victim, typically a senior resident,

is contacted by someone claiming to be one of their grandchildren and asking for help because they’ve been in a car crash, or in jail, and need bail money. The victim is asked to wire money to an alleged lawyer or police office, and is always asked not to tell anyone, explained Slight. Anyone contacted with a request of this nature should always verify the whereabouts of the person (who claims to be the grandchild) with another family member or the police, said Slight. Although people are often embarrassed about being duped, Slight stressed they should report the fraud to the OPP. “The Renfrew OPP are encouraging anyone who has been targeted to contact them, as these criminals are professionals and there is nothing to be embarrassed about,” he added. Details about the so-called granny frauds are available on the website of www.phonebusters.com. For August 2010, Phone Busters says the top three scams reported to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre were for prizes, services (mainly lower interest) and emergencies.

Community welcomes Dave Lemkay PETER CLARK peter.clark@metroland.com

He is already well known throughout the Ottawa Valley, but on Wednesday (Sept. 22), it was an opportunity for the business people and council members of Renfrew to meet the new executive director of the Renfrew Industrial Commission. Dave Lemkay was introduced during a noon-luncheon meetand-greet at the Industrial Commission office on O’Brien Road. Lemkay officially took over from the retired Norm Anderson Aug. 30, and said he has big shoes to fill. “The town should recognize Norm for his work over the last couple of decades,” he said. The Industrial Commission has been crucial for the Town of Renfrew in recent times, Lemkay added, noting Deslaurier Custom Cabinets as a prime example.

“That disastrous fire they had on New Year’s Day (2009) could have spelled the end to an industry in town. The commission was very helpful to Deslaurier’s staying in Renfrew. “I look forward to keeping businesses in town and the challenge of bringing in new businesses,” he added of the future. “We need to make space for them to operate.” He said involvement in doctor recruitment is vital. “If we are going to attract new business, we’ll need to have doctors.” RIC chair Mack Wilson thanked Anderson for his many years of service with the Industrial Commission, and looks ahead to many more with Lemkay. “Dave is the key to a seamless transition,” Wilson said. “I am looking forward to working with Dave, and I am going to miss Norm after 19 years of working with him. It’s been fun.”

Keep the pressure on when it comes to the fourlaning of Highway 17. That’s what municipalities and other stakeholders should do, Renfrew County’s operations committee members agree. “We can’t take our foot off the gas ... we have to continue to press,” public works director Dave Darch told the committee at a Sept. 13 meeting in McNab-Braeside. “We can’t quit now,” agreed committee chairman Zig Mintha, adding new provincial Infrastructure Minister Bob Chiarelli should be contacted for support “as he knows this area.” He has offered to meet with county officials, “so we should take him up on it,” Darch said. “This is great ... 417 melds a lot of things together for us,” said Greater Madawaska Reeve Peter Emon. “We need to present a package to the province.” He said the province should be reminded that the lack of transit in this area makes the highway project even more important. Darch said extending Highway 417 four-laning up the Valley is one of the most critical projects for the area because of its spin-off benefits to tourism and economic development. While area ministry officials continue to express interest in the project, continuation of the four-laning past Arnprior is not in the ministry’s five-year plan, he noted. “That’s a concern.”

Retired teacher joins RVH board of directors tors. He and his wife, Susan, are also regular volunteers with Renfrew’s Meals on Wheels program. “The image of Renfrew Victoria Hospital in this community is squeaky clean,” Lester says. “My big hope is to perpetuate that reputation for service and to contribute to maintaining the level of quality and integrity that the hospital has built over the years.” “Richard Lester will bring a fresh perspective to the hospital board,” says board chair Catherine O’Neil. “His many years as a teacher and his willingness to contribute to the board’s challeng-

ing workload will be greatly appreciated.” In addition to Lester’s appointment, Andy Boldt, Sandi Heins and Barbara Westgarth were recommended for reappointment to the board. The Renfrew Victoria Hospital board of directors has 12 elected positions. Each community representative can serve a maximum of three three-year terms (or nine consecutive years) without a break of service. The governance committee, which is responsible for nominating board directors, strives to balance the board

Worrisome crosswalks

A tasty addition

ome might call it inviting disaster to structure pedestrian traffic in one’s community on a concept so seemingly rare these days as courtesy. Others would call it criminal. It’s a backburner issue in most communities, but given the number of ‘courtesy’ crosswalks in Renfrew’s downtown core, the issue is really more a boiling pot, just one moment’s distraction away from exploding. Our neighbours in Carleton Place are taking action, sort of, by agreeing to consider funds in their 2011 budget deliberations to address the accidents-waitingto-happen. Acting on resident concerns, they will ponder such options as installing flashing lights on signposts and removing parking spaces immediately adjacent to these crosswalks. The courtesy-crosswalk concept is based on clear communication between motorist and pedestrian. One rule of thumb is to never, ever cross unless you make eye contact with the driver and they know you are crossing. But what if a second motorist passes the courteous car on the right, believing it to be turning left? There’s too much room for error in the existing system. That pot should be pulled onto the front burner, now.

To the editor: What a pleasant and delicious dinner experience we had in the new 7-Star Sushi Bar and Grill located in the former Bear’s Den. Not being familiar with Chinese Culture and not Sushi fans, we entered with trepidation. The friendly welcome we received immediately put us at ease. As we read the varied menu consisting of various items, the manager and staff were most helpful in explaining the various dishes. As each choice was placed on our table it was a tasty experience. Food was fresh and we were urged to keep eating. The buffet is a different concept from the usual Canadian style. It is all-you-can-eat but is brought to your table as ordered. Each serving is smaller than we are usually served, but you can reorder as you wish. We enjoyed the manager’s personal training on the use of chopsticks, but we were offered a fork when our efforts were unsuccessful. Fresh green tea was served repeatedly. Management and staff are friendly and fun. Thanks for coming to Renfrew. Gladys Sidock Renfrew

Lazy, hazy, crazy days end with first fall equinox harvest moon since 1991 THE GRAY LADY

SHINE ON, HARVEST MOON Summer said so long last week, closing yet another chapter in our hectic lives and turning the page to a whole new adventure. I was lucky enough to enjoy the change of seasons at a lakeside bonfire with family and friends, enjoying some of the past season’s catch and sharing jokes and stories. The impromptu fish fry was also a chance to watch the harvest moon, with the brilliant planet Jupiter following close behind, rise over the island across from our cottage. But it wasn’t just any harvest moon. A full moon hasn’t occurred on the same night as the fall equinox since 1991 and won’t happen again until 2029. That’s the cool thing about nature. Just when you think you have Mother Nature nailed down, she throws you a curve ball with something new and interesting. In fact, that’s what the Canadian

Mercury Mercur y The Renfrew

The New York Times has long held the nickname of The Gray Lady. Last week The Renfrew Mercury borrowed that title temporarily as a production problem with contaminated chemicals resulted in pages that were actually grey. Now it should be understood, our papers are already darker than some because of our commitment to the environment through the use of recycled newsprint. Printing on bright white paper looks good, but it comes at a price to our natural environment and future generations. Here at The Mercury we plan to continue steps to continue as the most environmentally-aware newspaper in the region. It’s a distinction we treasure. Meanwhile, we apologize for last week’s production slip-up. Brighter days lie ahead.

DONORS MAKE A DIFFERENCE Congratulations to everyone who attended the Canadian Blood Services clinic Sept. 15 in Renfrew, and to the Mackay Manor volunteers who helped at the event. Community development co-ordinator of donor services Jennifer Heale reports that 105 units of blood were collected from 118 donors. That amount could save the lives of 315 people. Heale says making the time to give blood isn’t always easy and the people who attended should know that their effort does make a real difference to patients in hospitals. The volunteers from Mackay Manor were also thanked for helping the clinic to run smoothly, and for their warmth and hospitality. Your next opportunity to donate is Wednesday, Nov. 10 from 2 to 8 p.m. at Renfrew Collegiate Institute. Call 1-888-2-DONATE to book your appointment.

Continuing the marathon to beat diabetes PETER CLARK

www.mccreas.net

peter.clark@metroland.com

Diabetes strikes people of all ages, and that is one reason why Renfrew’s Charlene Nolan is a member of Team Diabetes and participates in runs for a cure. Raising awareness is never far from her heart, although it can be said that far too many people already know, as in excess of three million Canadians have diabetes. “I joined Team Diabetes Canada to help raise money for extensive research, camps for young people with diabetes, education and special services to people affected by diabetes in communities across Canada,” Nolan noted. “My dad is one of those people.” She and her dad, Hughie Nolan, have combined to raise $40,000 for the Canadian Diabetes Association over the past three years. Both are a part of Team Diabetes. Team Diabetes is a fundraising program for diabetes education and services, advocacy and research. Team Diabetes participants train to run or walk a full or half marathon at exciting Canadian and international destinations, Nolan points out. Charlene recently returned home from running the Reykjavik Marathon Aug. 21, the second time she has run in Iceland. “My first Marathon for Diabetes was in 2006 in Iceland with my dad.” Charlene credits Renfrew Collegiate Raiders cross-country teacher Roger Poirier for getting her into running in the first place. “He introduced me to running back in high school. I still admire his love and dedication to the sport.” Aside from her father, Charlene can look to another inspiration when it comes to hunting for a diabetes cure – sevenyear-old Malorey Lambert, a student at Queen Elizabeth Public School. Diagnosed with diabetes at 18 months, Malorey learned to face the challenge head on at a young age. “I have to give myself a needle at supper, bed time and breakfast, and check myself (blood sugar levels) four times a day,” Malorey explained. She also goes to CHEO every four months. Malorey participated in a run for diabetes at Ma-Te-Way Park last Father’s Day organized by Poirier and the Nolans, and raised $750. She was quick to point out why. “Hopefully (we’ll) get medicine and nobody will get diabetes.” “My grandma and grandpa, mom and dad, and my sister and me,” Malorey said

of some of the main contributors to her fundraising efforts. “I won an iPod,” she adds proudly. The year 2010 marks the 10th anniversary of Team Diabetes Canada. Since the program’s inception, over 4,000 members have raised $23.5 million. “This year, our Iceland team raised $445,000.” “A lot more still has to be done,” Charlene adds, which is why she thanks family and friends and Renfrew and area businesses who have supported her in the past, and looks forward to their support to help the Canadian Diabetes Association get closer to its goals in the future. She also has her eye on another marathon in the near future. “Hopefully Rome in 2012,” Charlene says. “That would be nice.”

COMMUNITY

IMPORTANT NOTICE The Town of Renfrew wishes to advise residential, commercial and institutional users that hydrant flow testing is being performed on the Renfrew Water Distribution System from Monday, September 20, 2010 to Friday, October 8, 2010. This testing is essential to confirm how much fire flow is available from each municipal hydrant in the distribution system. During this time the water distribution system will experience disturbance of sediment that will cause red water in some areas. If red water is observed residents should run the cold water to drain until the water returns to a clear condition. Water system pressures will also be affected for short periods of time over the three week period which may cause temporary disruptions to residential, commercial and institutional fixtures. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the Department of Development and Works at (613) 432-8166. Yours truly, Mike Asselin, Director Development & Works

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Independent federal member not the answer To the editor: In rebuttal to Adam Lesko’s “A Political Mess in Renfrew-NipissingPembroke” published in the Renfrew Mercury Thursday, September 2, 2010: as a Grade 12 student at Renfrew Collegiate Institute I read this letter with disgust and as a result feel compelled to make this response. Firstly, I noticed you have a B.A. in political science from Nipissing University. This tells me that you are an educated man in this field. It also tells me that you left the riding to go off to school in search of bigger and better dreams. After three years of studies and a degree you return home to Laurentian Valley to find a political mess. From what I have read about the history of federal politics in this riding it has been a mess since the introduction of a Canadian Alliance/Conservative MP, Cheryl Gallant, as our representative in Ottawa. I certainly agree with your views on our current MP and I will ask as well, “Ms. Gallant, where is your voice on any matters in this current government?” Secondly, as for your statement of Christine Tabbert being a ‘parachute candidate’, I get the feeling you don’t like the fact that she went off to school and obtained a degree and was ultimately rewarded for her hard work with a job outside our riding. Yet to this date, she returns home to this riding and pounds the pavement going door to door meeting and listening to

the people of this riding, demonstrating that, if elected, she will at least continue to work hard for us at her new job outside the riding, or should I say, on Parliament Hill in Ottawa. Also the independent candidate, Mr. Clouthier, has worked and lived outside the riding for the last five years as the executive director of the Ontario Horse Racing Industry Association. This makes Mr. Clouthier a ‘parachute candidate’ too, as his primary address was Toronto just a few short months ago. If your objection relates to the nomination process of the local Liberal Riding Association, I should point out that Christine Tabbert was nominated as the Liberal candidate after the riding association advertised for candidates and underwent a candidate recruitment process. Any member of the Liberal Party of Canada could have sought to run against her for that nomination. No one did. Thirdly, let us move on to your support of an independent candidate, namely Mr. Clouthier. Mr. Clouthier does have political experience; I believe he was elected as a Liberal MP for this riding and served four years. From my research, to receive a pension from the Government of Canada, MPs must serve a minimum of six years. Doing the math, that leaves two years of service left to acquire his pension. Mr. Clouthier just turned 60 years old. He is nearing the traditional retirement age. Could this just be a motive for him running again?

Mr. Lesko, you stated in your letter you believe an independent MP will have huge power on the making or breaking of any Bill in Parliament. Yes, I do believe if elected Mr. Cloutier will be approached by parties in regards to votes. He will be asked to vote in certain ways, in return for what? Who knows? I think this is just a different form of “being whipped” as you called it. For the readers, here are some facts regarding Independent MPs: 1. an independent MP cannot stand on any parliamentary committees; 2. an independent MP has no Caucus research resources; and 3. an independent MP has little, if any, time during Question Period. This demonstrates just how weak an independent MP is, just a lonely vote with no voice. Does this sound familiar to anyone? In conclusion, Mr. Lesko, as well as the readership of this, I agree our riding is a mess. I agree that our riding has no voice with our current representative. I agree that change is required. However, I am smart enough at the age of 17 with my mere education to realize that an independent MP is no better than what we are experiencing right now. So in fact, the only change that could even be feasible would be for us to return the riding to the Liberal candidate, Christine Tabbert. Sincerely, Brandon Walsh Renfrew

Take another look at the candidates To the editor: I want to say “welcome back to the Valley” to Adam Lesco, whose recent letter you published concerning A Political Mess in our riding. Adam, we need more young people like you in The Valley who have a genuine interest in government, have taken time to research the politics of the area and are willing to be active in bringing about change. But Adam, please delve more deeply into the history of independent MPs. They are not the solution. They have no power and they have no influence. They seldom, if ever, get to sit on committees, which is where problems are studied and resolved. They don’t get to meet with party leaders and the public servants ignore them. They are not part of a pressure group and they have almost zero access to the people who make business decisions. And don’t think that a ‘party’ of independents will get results – they usually vote against each other. History shows that on rare occasions, perhaps once in decades, the vote of an independent becomes crucial and then usually only for one issue. I do not know the name of any independent MP who made any significant contribution to more than one piece of legislation in the last 30 years. Sadly, independent MPs soon fade away because they find they can’t represent their constituents effectively. Sure, an independent MP can speak out robustly, even bombastically , provide some comic relief and make us all feel good. But that is not what we need

in this riding. As a fourth-generation resident of Renfrew County, having lived in Toronto, Winnipeg, Vancouver and smaller centres in each province, having worked over 30 years in government (three federal departments, five provincial departments) and having engaged in the politics of all three provinces, I chose to retire back to the Ottawa Valley 20 years ago. I make no apologies for saying that we have a growing storm of serious problems in Renfrew County and these problems have come to rest at the feet of our young children, our youth, our seniors and our small business operators. Go on the net and view the Champlain LHIN anaylsis of the census data for Renfrew County. Talk to our educators, our medical personnel, law enforcement and municipal officials and to people in the woodlands, agricultural and commercial sectors. We need federal representation that far exceeds what we have had in the past, someone with the knowledge and experience to be a potential cabinet minister right from the get-go and someone who was born and raised in our riding with the continuing personal and family ties to the area that will insure a commitment to getting things done, rather than to a job and a pay cheque. Yes, I’m talking about Christine Tabbert, the Liberal candidate. Her former teachers and the people she worked for and with prior to university are tremendously excited about her as their potential MP. Like you, Adam, Chris-

tine went out of the riding to get the best education possible which led to a tremendous experience in the work place and a superb reputation among her colleagues. As a recent political science graduate, I’m sure you will agree that to get things done you need to be able to understand and connect with people and you need to understand the intricate interaction of organizations. The fact that Christine Tabbert made the Dean’s List, graduating from the University of Guelph with a psychology major and earned the prestigious Dean Ivan C. Rand Award with her law degree from Western University, confirms she’s got it. Her 10 successful years at the cutting edge of civil and commercial litigation proves she can use it effectively. Now Christine is moving on to a much bigger calling. She has been discussing the issues of the riding with people of every age and background and has attended policy-making conferences in Vancouver, Toronto, Windsor, Montreal and Ottawa. She has already had more ‘one-on-one’ politicial discussions with her party leader than many MPs have in an entire term in office. We in this riding are finally on the way to having an MP that can help bring solutions to the problems of our riding. Adam, again I commend you for your lively interest in politics. But it’s time to take another look at the candidates. Orval Strong Matawatchan

You name the working tool and he may have it in his shop. Stanley planes. All types of chisels, including the slicks used to build the county’s famous pointer boats. Rasps. Scrapers. “I’m the biggest tool dealer in eastern Ontario,” says Douglas resident John Holyer, who has spent nearly four decades working in the construction and/or antique businesses. Out of his Ottawa Valley Antiques shop, he sells a wide variety of very dated items, including china, rocking chairs, cupboards, electric lamps and carvings. But he says he’s cutting back. The travel, to attend shows from Hamilton to Quebec City, has just recently ended. “It’s getting too much on the body,” explains Holyer, 70. “You load and you unload for the show. You load to come back home and you unload again.” Business will continue, but on a more modest level. “I don’t sell crap,” says Holyer, citing the examples of the mid19th-century slick used for work on local pointer boats, and the niddy-noddy used from about 1750 to 1850 for winding wool. Meanwhile, he has also retired from the construction business, which brought him to Canada, in 1971, to work as foreman for William Verheyen and Sons out of Eganville. He arrived, in one of the fiercest snow storms in years, but it won’t be the last storm faced by the British native and long-time Douglas resident. He’ll, no doubt, create some controversy by saying he’s running for council because it’s time Ward 2 was represented by someone other than a farmer. That farmer is incumbent Robert Dick, who is seeking election for the fifth straight term on council. Holyer and some Douglas friends felt it would be ideal to find a younger, non-farming candidate for council. But they couldn’t, so Holyer stepped forward to make it a two-man race. “There’s too many farmers on Admaston-Bromley council,” he argues, in obvious reference to Mayor Raye-Anne Briscoe and councillors Jack Kelly, Dirk Rook and Robert Dick who have all sought re-election. Now one of Kelly and Briscoe will be eliminated as they square off in the mayoral race; Rook will be acclaimed in Ward 1; Dick faces Holyer in Ward 2; Donna Blimkie faces farmer Ray Pender in Ward 3; and Susan Kallies and Douglas farmer Michael Donohue are the candidates in Ward 4. “There’s no one representing the individual home owners, and don’t forget that 80 per cent of the people in (the) Bromley (portion of the) township are individual

The species-at-risk act is a Toronto-born entity forced on rural residents, says Holyer, who wants to fight some of the restrictions. On property rights, he says a long-standing mineral act still means a property owner has no protection against mineral rights registered by someone else who doesn’t even live on the land. You Township of Horton don’t own them unless you register them, which may be problematic if a property owner doesn’t know the minerals are there in the first place, says Holyer. Holyer has never run for council, but has volunteer executive experience in the community. He was president of the Douglas Lions Club in the early 1980s, the Lions Club zone chair in 1983-84, and a founding member of Douglas Frosty Fun in the mid 1970s. If elected to council, Holyer says he would bring a forthright approach. “I’m not diplomatic,” he admits. “A lot of people find that hard to understand, but if you want to call a stick a stick, I’ll call it that.” He’d also bring to council extensive experience in different businesses, he says. Outside of work and family, he’s an avid Boston Red Sox baseball fan who also supports the Blue Jays and hockey’s Ottawa

ELECTION


ELECTION

Many issues for mayoral candidate STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com

During Renfrew’s three-person race for mayor, Callum Scott says he just wants to tell the truth and put an end to poor management of the town. Next to the table, where Scott was about to be interviewed by the Mercury, a tall sign displayed 10 of his election issues, including no forced agenda; democratic accountability; fiscal responsibility; no more big brother attitude; and equal justice for all. But first he excitedly pumped up an inflatable, plastic Christmas Santa scene emitting imaginary snowflakes. The same unit, he said, costs $108 at Wal-Mart, but he found it in the dumpster after the Renfrew Day Care Centre was closed down. He said he was shocked to find so many usable products in the dumpster. The Mercury covered that story, including comments from Scott as well as from Coun. Bill Ringrose. The latter indicated various sales or offers of children’s products and office equipment resulted in the town recouping about $3,000. As it turned out, sales reached nearly $5,000, as announced at a recent town council meeting. Nevertheless, Scott says it’s an example of a throw-away attitude the town needs to change. Scott, who grew up in Renfrew, says these are his roots. “I’ve worked all over Canada and the United States, trying to etch out my path … and the path always brings me back to Renfrew, 39 times. Why? Because I want to be here.” He is one of three children of Walter and Eileen Scott. His father died in 2009, his mother in 1960 in a car crash. He and Zenaida, who was born in the Phillipines, have been married for 20 years. She was also a candidate for council in the last Renfrew municipal election, when Scott unsuccessfully opposed Sandi Heins for mayor. This time, it’s Heins and Scott again, with Coun. Bill Ringrose completing the mayoral ballot. Scott also ran for council (unsuccessfully) in 1977. He says he had concerns about the town then, and even stronger concerns today. “We have a seven-person council that rules the town and they’re basically telling the people of Renfrew to sit down, shut your mouth and pay your taxes,” says Scott, 54. “We have people living in fear in Renfrew. People are scared, people are scared to speak up. “But that’s going to change this year. There’s a new wave in the air. I sense it,” he adds, alluding to the push by some community members to push for new faces on council. “I’m hearing all kinds of good things about my opportunity to become the next mayor of Renfrew,” claims Scott, who says Renfrew’s not alone when it comes to new political movements. Take the example of the Tea Party in the U.S. that has least one of the entrenched parties concerned, he says. Other supporters of new political faces are Dave and Warren La Rocque of George Jackson Toyota. They’re of-

fering $500 to each candidate not currently sitting on council. Scott refused the offer, on grounds of potential conflict of interest, but says he supports the La Rocques’ push for a town that is friendly to the business community. In running for mayor, Scott says he brings a really positive attitude and knowledge of what a dollar is worth. A retired customs officer, he graduated with a law and security diploma (with honours) from Sir Sanford Fleming College. He worked for Canada Customs until 1999, then for three years on library archival work in Ottawa.

Callum Scott His Riverside Bulk Barn was opened Jan. 15, 2003, and remained open until Dec. 31, 2009. The major reasons for closing, he maintains, were harassment of a local neighbour and an antismall-business attitude by the mayor and council. “We never made a lot of money, but the bills were paid,” said Scott. Meanwhile, he says the Town of Renfrew continues to waste money, including the five times the town took him to provincial offences court. The town lost each time, says Scott, on such issues as water meters, building signs and refusing to use chlorinebased town water. “I don’t spend what I don’t have,” insists Scott, and he says the town should take a similar approach. He says he’s also a team player, a good listener, open to new ideas, and a good responder. Possible evidence of that is the roll of about 600 letters he has taped together and plans to show at the allcandidates forum. The questions have been on such issues as George Jackson Toyota, sewage disposal, alleged use of town vehicles for personal use, and the alleged firing of water-treatment plant employees. “Not one question has been answered,” says Scott. “They don’t answer questions, they don’t respond to anything. You don’t get answers.” Regardless, he has responses to several projects the town may be pursuing in the near future. Like a swim-

ming pool. Based on his own experiences working as a full-time Toronto parks and recreation employee in the early 1990s, he says the town can’t afford a pool. Working in each of the city’s 43 pools, he says the average annual cost per pool for operating expenses was $100,000, not including staffing and repairs. “This town cannot afford a pool, and Arnprior would give its pool away in a second (because of poor user numbers),” says Scott. “Don’t get me wrong. I would love a pool, if we could afford it, but we can’t.” Scott says the town does enough misspending, as it is. Like draining the water tower three times in the last few years, with that chlorinated water sent into the Bonnechere River. He says underwater camera work in the tower could have saved a lot of money and time. He also says there have been recent breakdowns at the new Renfrew sewage plant that have been kept secret. He says he has witnessed regular traffic of trucks moving disposed sewage from the site. He also says he has been told by more than one town employee that the sewage plant is broken. The plant is not broken, says Renfrew development and works director Mike Asselin. “We were processing some sludge from Arnprior for a while when their centrifuge failed,” says Asselin.. “They’re not hauling any materials off-site that would be out of the ordinary. In fact, the plant is performing well. “There are maintenance issues periodically,” adds Asselin, giving the example of a faulty sensor on one of the conveyors.

Slow and steady

LONG LIST OF BEEFS Scott’s list of beefs with the town is long, but he says his beef isn’t with the general population. “I love the people. I don’t like the way the town is being run.” So many things could be done, however, to improve the town, says Scott. Like fix up the old town beach. Like create a skateboard park near his closed Riverside Bulk Barn building. Like buying the old post office building, which was never going to leave Renfrew, for more than $300,000. Like turning the old Mohawk Mill land into a lawn bowling facility for seniors. Volunteers could be used to clean up the latter. “There’s a whole workforce that could volunteer or being paid nominal money to do a clean-up,” he argues. The entrance signs to Renfrew refer to the town as a friendly place, but Scott says “we have to make Renfrew a friendly, beautiful place again.” As for his opponents, Heins and Ringrose, he says you’ll get “one of the same.” The town also needs a full-time mayor, says Scott. If elected mayor, Scott says he’d bring an open-minded approach to lead a dollar-conscious council that allows residents to live within their means.

Griffith forum for all Greater Madawaska candidates JOHN CARTER john.carter@metroland.com

Greater Madawaska voters will have a chance to hear their candidates prior to the mail-in vote deadline. However, they will have to go to Griffith to do it. TONIGHT’S THE NIGHT Because Oct. 16, the date of the Calabogie forum, is the deadline for mailing ballots, an all-candidates meeting Thursday, Oct. 7 in Griffith will include all 13 candidates from the three wards. The forum, sponsored by the Matawatchan Community Hall board, will be held at the Griffith Lions Hall from 7 to 9 p.m. Each candidate will have two and a half minutes to speak, and then questions from the floor will be entertained. Ken Birkett will be the moderator. Organizer Bill Graham said not having a candidates forum prior to Oct. 16 would have disadvantaged voters in Ward 2 and 3. While voters in Ward 1 can drop off their ballots at the municipal office after the Oct. 16 mail deadline, not many residents from Griffith-Matawatchan would make the 100-kilometre round trip, he said. OTHER CABA COMMITMENTS Meanwhile, the Calabogie and Area Business Association would have preferred to hold a Greater Madawaska all-candidates forum earlier than Saturday, Oct. 16, but it had other commitments, explained director Carolyn Jakes. Jakes said CABA has been concentrating on this weekend’s Festival of the Senses, so members didn’t have time to organize a meeting in September. After it was determined a Saturday forum would be fairest for both local and seasonal residents, Oct. 16 was the first date available, she added. Jakes noted the Calabogie Community Centre is not available Oct. 2 because it is booked for Artfest. Oct. 9 was deemed inappropriate because it is the Thanksgiving weekend, she said. As a result, a Calabogie allcandidates meeting for the three reeve candidates and 10 councillor hopefuls from all wards has been set for 3 to 5 p.m. Oct. 16.

McKay seeks Greater Madawaska council berth JOHN CARTER john.carter@metroland.com

Glenda McKay says her management skills and residents association experience will be put to good use if she is elected a member of Greater Madawaska council. The retired Bell Canada manager is one of five candidates vying for two councillor positions in Ward one (the Calabogie area), joining Marie Buscomb, Brian Hunt, Vincent Johnston and Donna Marie Kennedy in the race. One incumbent, Don Mercer, is not running again and the other, John Pratt, is vying for reeve. McKay has extensive experience in management in both the private sector and running her own business in Greater Madawaska as a professional consultant to both government and private industry. She is also a longtime member of the 140-member Norway Lake Residents Association. Her business experience has provided her several valuable traits that will make her an effective councillor, she said. She lists money management, team-building, trouble-shooting, project leadership and strategic planning as just some of the skills that will come in handy on council. McKay and her family have owned a cottage in Greater Madawaska for more than 20 years and in 2004 she and her husband made the Norway Lake area their permanent home. That past allows her to understand and respect the needs of both full-time and seasonal homeowners, she said.

Glenda McKay Since becoming a full-time resident, McKay has become, in addition to running her business, an active community volunteer. She has served on several township committees, including economic development and strategic planning, and was involved in the highspeed outreach program that oversaw the spread of high-speed Internet to parts of Greater Madawaska. She said council should make a better effort in listening to its committees’ input instead of segregating them. For instance, there should have been an implementation plan in place by now for the recommendations developed in the strategic planning process, she added.

Furthermore, a revised noise bylaw for the track should already have been implemented, she said. It’s needed to end the bickering, address community concerns and bring closure to the issue, she maintained. “People will feel happy if they’re treated fairly,” she said. “There has to be no favouritism ... the laws have to be clear ... and the same for everybody.” McKay says the new council needs to be proactive in tackling a number of important strategic challenges facing it in the next term. Her priorities include:  protecting ratepayers by finding ways to reduce the tax burden;  providing better municipal services for an aging population (about 22 per cent of the Greater Madawaska population is over 65);  reviewing the payment-in-lieu-oftaxes methodology between the township and Ontario Hydro to better reflect taxes owing;  improving health care access and community support in the municipality by attracting and retaining health professionals;  promoting township development with a focus on abiding by the Greater Madawaska strategic plan that emphasizes protecting the natural environment;  promoting additional recycling stations throughout the community. McKay promises to be accessible and accountable to her constituents. She has set up a website further detailing her election campaign at www. glendamckay.ca.

Former reeve’s son among Ward 1 candidates JOHN CARTER john.carter@metroland.com

Greater Madawaska needs to be better managed and council has to communicate more effectively with its ratepayers, says Brian Hunt, one of five candidates for two Ward one (Calabogie area) spots on Greater Madawaska council. Hunt, the son of a former reeve of Brougham Township, says his business and professional experience can contribute to making a cohesive, effective council. With council to have at least three new members, his experience will come in handy, he adds. Hunt says it is crucial for council to keep ratepayers well informed and respond to inquiries in a timely manner. Council members must get out and explain projects and decisions and “we need to be approachable,” he says. After four years on council’s finance committee, he concludes the township’s system of budgeting and financial planning is “old and tired.” Council should look into replacing it with a more cost-effective system that better assists managers in their day-to-day jobs, he says. Greater Madawaska should work with other municipalities and the county in improving financial systems and reduce costs through increased joint purchasing power, he adds. Hunt cautions that council will have

Brian Hunt to be proactive in securing grants that will grow scarce with the mounting deficits faced by the federal and provincial governments. “You’ll have to be knowledgeable about what’s out there and have the system to be able to get them (grants),” he says. Grant money is particularly important for major road projects, as it frees up township dollars to maintain and improve the township’s remaining roads, he explains. Hunt has experience and extensive contacts in the road-building area, hav-

ing worked for 30 years for the Warren Paving and Materials Group, one of Canada’s largest road builders. His positions included corporate controller and vice-president of administration. Mount St. Patrick born and raised, Hunt is the son of William Hunt, the former clerk-treasurer and reeve of Brougham. “We heard a lot of it (municipal politics) around the dinner table,” he noted. Brian Hunt attended school in Eganville and Renfrew (RCI), graduated with a business administration diploma and later obtained the Certified Management Accountant designation. He retired in 2002 and bought and ran Jocko’s Beach Resort on Calabogie Lake with his wife, Patricia, and another couple, before selling it in 2008 to give himself more family time. The experience “opened me up to some of the challenges of running a small business in this area,” says Hunt, who has served as a director of the Calabogie and Area Business Association. The township needs a stronger commercial tax base, he says, noting commercial taxes are paid on a 3-to-1 ratio compared to residential. Having more commercial taxes will take some the burden off the residential sector, he says. “We must entice, not deter, good businesses to our township.” See CANDIDATE, Page 10

Ways to avoid spoiling your ballots Continued from front Yolkowskie said under the township’s vote-by-mail system, voter kits were scheduled to be mailed out to Greater Madawaska residents this week (Sept. 27 to Oct. 1). Voters can vote any time after they receive their ballots until election day Oct. 25, when ballots will be counted at 8 p.m. As a result there is no need for advance polls, she said. However, people should mail in their ballots by Oct. 16 to ensure they arrive in time, Yolkowskie said. After that they can drop them off at the municipal office either during regular hours or in the drop box. “Read the instructions,” urged Coun. Don Mercer, noting there were about 300 spoiled ballots in the last Greater Madawaska election. “There was some confusion ... and concerns about security,” he said. Yolkowskie said people must sign the declaration form that accompanies the sealed confidential ballot envelope to have their ballots counted. In response to a query by Ward 2 candidate Bruno Kierczack, Yolkowskie said there are no plans to put ballot boxes in Dacre or Griffith. Council has approved one old-style ballot box for the community centre in Calabogie, but that is all, she said. Mercer noted there are still people who don’t trust new technology such as direct deposit. “They want to see that pension cheque,” he said. “Just like they want to see the ballot put in the ballot box.” However, it’s too late to add ballot boxes, “so they’ll just have to trek down to Calabogie to cast their ballots,” he added. Coun. Karin Lehnhardt said after two vote-by-mail elections people are getting used to it. She noted she was once opposed to the voting change, but now expects that electronic voting will be the next step for the township. Mercer also urged residents to ensure they are on the voters list. People can register to vote at the municipal office, “but bring all the ID you’ve got,” he advised. Yolkowskie said she’s done some “cleaning up” of the voters list, but would like to hear about new voters or those who should no longer be on the list, including people deceased or moved away.

Better communication required, says Ward 2 candidate JOHN CARTER john.carter@metroland.com

Greater Madawaska council needs to improve communication with ratepayers and increase their participation in setting priorities, says Bruno Kierczak. The Black Donald Lake area resident is vying with Michael McGarry to replace retiring Tom Ryan as the Ward 2 (Brougham) representative on Greater Madawaska council. An effective councillor should “receive, digest and respond,” he said. “Right now there’s not enough of that.” However, council should take care not to “over-regulate,” but focus on providing basic services, he says. “We should be going with what is tried, tested and true.” Kierczak says he would like to put his extensive financial and administrative experience to work for the residents of Greater Madawaska. He has already

contributed by serving on the township’s finance, broadband, and planning and economic development committees. Strong fiscal management is crucial to the township’s progress, he says, arguing “we’ve got to do more with less ... by setting priorities and doing it right the first time.” A technologist with a strong background in finance, he started with the Toronto Dominion Bank before moving to the federal government where he climbed the ladder, retiring as a senior executive. He was involved in several major construction projects, including the Confederation Bridge to Prince Edward Island and renovations to the Parliament Buildings. He also guided the introduction of new computer technology for thousands of employees in the federal ministry of public works and at Correctional Services. While he has worked right across Canada, Kierczak was

DeGrandmont seeks to be ‘strong voice for a distinct community’ JOHN CARTER john.carter@metroland.com

Griffith-Matawatchan area residents need a councillor who ensures they don’t feel left out of township affairs, says J.P. DeGrandmont. The owner of Juniper Hills Farm near the MatawatchanCalabogie Road intersection is one of three candidates for Ward 3 councillor. After “grumbling” about several issues in the last four years, he decided it is time to “put up or shut up.” DeGrandmont says the 50-kilometre “buffer zone” between the ward and Calabogie means there are different needs in the two areas. He promises to be a “strong voice for a distinct community” on council, so those differences are understood and addressed by all of council. While he feels political channels for addressing questions and concerns have been less than satisfactory, he says he likes to accentuate the positive. “I’m not in this to start a war,” he says, adding that amalgamation is here to stay and for the most part the township is wellmanaged. Unfortunately, many Ward 3 residents feel council is “too Calabogie-centric” and they are the “poor cousins” in the arrangement, he says. While not sure that is the case, the ward does need a councillor who speaks out more forcefully

usually based in his home town of Ottawa. He was a regular guest at White Pines Resort beginning in the late 1960s and bought property in Brougham in 1981. He became a full-time resident in 2004 when he retired. “Why am I running? I love this place,” he says. “I feel I need to contribute.” Kierczak says he has the experience, knowledge and people skills to be a strong representative for the ward. Growth is needed if the township is to afford to retain and increase services, he says. The township is facing a difficult challenge in keeping up maintenance on its 1,300 roads. But maintaining appropriate infrastructure is key to attracting more people and businesses to the area, he says, noting Flat Road should be a must-do on the paving list. Furthermore, the road past the Ferguson Lake campground needs to be either

paved or moved, he maintains. “The dust is terrible.” Kierczak says changes at the Black Donald landfill could have been managed better. “People have been left with a sour taste ... it could have been kept alive longer.” He says seasonal residents want and deserve more services for the taxes they pay, particularly when it comes to private road maintenance. As well, highspeed broadband coverage needs to be expanded in the township, he says. As for the motorsport park, there has been a lack of trust that needs to be dispelled, he says. The track brings revenue to the township, but council has to determine how it can help Stones Lake residents affected by the noise, he suggests. “It’s a matter of balance.”

Ratepayers experience prompted Sexton to run steve.newman@metroland.com

Chairing the Horton Ratepayers Association a few years ago was an eye-opening experience that helped Sheri Sexton decide to run for Horton council. “Being involved in that really opened my eyes to a lot of things. Residents had complaints,� she says. “There were things I realized I could do to change things,� she says, indicating there needs to be more community involvement in big projects. Case in point: septage treatment. “There were so many opinions and it seemed nobody really had enough information when it came down to decisions like that,� she says of the lime stabilization project, whose holding tanks began accepting untreated septage Sept. 22. Whether it’s septage, recreation, road construction, taxes or business concerns, the 42-yearold Sexton figures she has enough life experiences to be a helpful member of Horton council. She now runs her own downtown Renfrew business, the Lighthouse Tanning Salon and Spa. And she previously helped run a farm that combined market gardening and a large-scale maple products operation. That was from 1997 to 2004, when one of the most visible reminders of their Eady Road farm business was their corn stand at the northwest end of Renfrew. But several maple syrup-producing trees sustained damageduring the 1998 ice storm, meaning the Sextons couldn’t retain their Seal of Quality volume without importing product. Sexton was brought up in

He’s a licensed electrician who runs Steve Sexton Electrical. The two are also parents of two teenage girls (Carly and Kelsey) and 11-year-old Nicholas. “I bring a lot of experience as far as hearing from what people want ‌ I also bring common sense, being a mom of three children and a past farmer,â€? says Sexton. “I’ve had public and community involvement and I’d like to

she says, knowing she was going to be opening a new business about that time. But this time she says her children sat her down and said they’d help out by making election signs. “It’s been a neat little adventure,� says Sexton, who was among potential councillors to attend yesterday’s all-candidates meeting. Whether it was at the Sept. 22 forum, or elsewhere along the campaign trail, she says she hopes voters see her as someone who can help make the Horton community an even better place to be.

Working in local businesses and with volunteer-based organizations are decent ways to get to know one’s own community. That’s the thinking of Ray Cunningham, who has been a volunteer member of the Arnprior Fair board, Lions Club and Kinsmen, and remains a member of the Arnprior Royal Canadian Legion. He has lived in the Ottawa Valley all his life, including a dozen years in sales and leasing with Ottawa’s Donnelly Ford Lincoln in the 1980s and early ‘90s. More recently, he has worked in Arnprior and Horton Township. After working as general manager for an Arnprior Ford dealership, he began his own business, Ray’s Auto Sales and Leasing Inc., in Horton Township at the northwest end of Renfrew. He’s also half-way through his one-year term as president of the legion’s Branch 174 in Arnprior. That volunteer work, he says, is linked to his desire to better the lives of seniors and other community members. He considered running for council four years ago, but the timing wasn’t entirely right, with a job in Arnprior and a home in Horton and the logistics of commuting.

ELECTION

Politically-inclined farmer enters Horton political arena STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com

Farmers don’t often have enough time left in the day to get involved in municipal politics. But this may be as good a time as any for Horton councillor-candidate Richard Walker. His family’s farming roots go back to the 1850s in Kinburn, making his son (Andrew) a fifthgeneration Ottawa Valley farmer. Walker’s great grandfather (Robert), grandfather (George) and father (Robert) all farmed in Kinburn, before Walker married Agnes Rouble of Horton Township and bought the farm owned by his wife’s parents 23 years ago. “I could easily sit on my hands and say I’m busy,” says Walker, whose son was just a teenager when the current four-year municipal term began. But now he’s farming full-time and doing some farming things better than his dad, says Walker. “If I was to get elected and I’m away certain days of council business, it would give him (Andrew) more experience to see if this is really what he wants to do.”

Besides, Walker, 57, says he’s always been interested in politics. “I haven’t worked on people’s campaigns, but I always vote and I have personal opinions about politics.” Walker says he hasn’t done much campaigning yet, but that residents say they are growing tired of paying a little bit more for this and that, like grocery and hydro bills and municipal taxes. He says municipal taxes “aren’t bad,” but says the incoming council will have to watch how much township debt is accumulated, because of debenture-assisted projects involving the community rink and Garden of Eden Road reconstruction. “I’ve been reviewing the budget and seeing where money is being spent. And this council is going to have to watch their spending,” says Walker. “I don’t think they’re going to be in a position to take on more projects, whether they’re roads or at the community centre.” Also, he says he’d like to bring a farming presence to council. “I believe I’m one of two remaining (Horton) dairy farm-

Richard Walker ers, although there’s still a significant agricultural presence in Horton, and I don’t really think they’ve had a voice on council in recent years.” To council he would bring volunteer experience. He was a board member with the Cream Producers Marketing Board of Ontario in the 1990s prior to amalgamation with the Ontario Milk Marketing Board to form

the Dairy Farmers of Ontario. He is also a former Renfrew Kinsman and a past member of Renfrew Presbyterian Church’s board of managers. Perhaps he’ll also bring Walker family resourcefulness to council, like the way his dad did business back in the 1930s Depression, when he made more money than any time afterwards. His father would travel to Winnipeg, buy livestock at a penny a pound, then ship them back east for resale at two cents a pound. That would double his profit, minus expenses. Walker’s own farming Depression was the BSE (mad-cow) crisis around 2005. The BSE caused “some hardship,” admits Walker, who worked a couple of years for Renfrew Home Hardware, in addition to running his own dairy and heifer farm. But challenges, sometimes huge ones, are a normal part of farming, says Walker, whose farm is at Renfrew’s north-west end, near the Pinnacle “With farmers there’s always a measure of adversity, whether it’s the weather, government regulations, or low commodity prices. But as the saying goes,

we’re eternal optimists. Next year will be better. Next week will be better.” Meanwhile, Walker says Horton must continue to provide recreational services, even if it, like most municipalities, finds they’re not money-makers. If a cement pad is built for the rink surface, it should be raised through fundraising, but not through tax dollars until the current debt is paid off, says Walker. As for committees, he says they need fewer councillors. This would leave issues at committee level less prone to rubber-stamping and open to more meaningful discussion at council meetings, says Walker. He also says committees, when possible, should consist of members from various parts of the township. Walker also wonders what will come of Horton’s lime stabilization project, if farm lands are restricted to a certain number of treated-septage applications (because of the lime component). He and wife Agnes have two children, Andrew, 23, and Angela, 17, who are both active fiddle players.

Horton candidate looks to improve on strong 2006 showing steve.newman@metroland.com

Glen Campbell has a famous name, but unlike his musical namesake, he hasn’t been married several times and he is definitely interested in municipal politics. The 44-year-old Campbell, who grew up in Horton, only filed his name for nomination in the last election shortly before the deadline. He then placed a close fourth, but only three councillor-candidates were elected. The other council members were Deputy-Reeve Bob Hall and Reeve Bob Johnston, whose titles were subsequently changed to deputy mayor and mayor. Campbell fell 20 votes short of third-place Bob Kingsbury’s 616 votes, while Don Eady and Dave Bennett, who both received more than 800, are now facing off with Rod Ballantyne for mayor.

Five Renfrew council berths, not four

For the next four years, Campbell would gladly accept the name ‘councillor’ in front of his name after campaigning on issues that include Horton’s tendering process, committee representation, the need for public questions at council meetings, and continued support for doctor recruitment. His wife has a family doctor, but Campbell does not, and knows he’s hardly alone in that regard. He says some residents are also complaining about the costs for recruiting doctors, but calls the annual donation of $25,000 by each of four contributing municipalities (including Horton) “a small price to pay for down the road.” Committee representation also needs to carry more weight from the community at large, says Campbell. Regarding public input at monthly council meetings, he

Glen Campbell says there should be a time slot for public questions, even if it’s only a small window. Campbell knows he’s one of the youngest candidates, but he says he also brings an old-school mentality. “My three R’s are roads, recreation and rates af-

The front-page story in last week’s Mercury incorrectly referred to eight candidates seeking four positions as Renfrew councillor. They are actually seeking five berths, in addition to the positions for reeve and mayor. No reference was made in the story about candidates for the single trustee’s position on

fordable for Horton residents.” Spending has to be monitored (with the township borrowing money for cost-shared projects on community centre expansion and Garden of Eden Road repairs), says Campbell. On possible expansion projects, he says, “I’m always for anything that’s going to be good for the community. If we can afford it, let’s get it or let’s buy it. If it’s a want more than a need, it should be a publicized discussion or debate.” Campbell would also like to see the results of bids on various projects or items posted for public viewing. This, he says, should also include the bids by all companies or individuals. His dad, Stanley, who’s now 87, used to grade the roads for Horton Township. His mom, Rhoda, passed away when Glen was only 13, while brother Colin and sister Jean are also Horton

residents. And Campbell’s cousin Judy Campbell, who recently passed away, is a former Horton councillor. He and wife Lauri, who grew up in Westmeath, have been married 19 years. She’s a legal secretary; he’s an electrical foreman for VCI Controls, out of Pembroke, but they also have a hobby farm. After selling their 15 or so cows and calves two years ago, they now have hay and soybean crops, but may return to the livestock. Farming or not, Campbell says he’d like to be part of the council that helps pave Horton’s future. “With the amount of people running, there are some good candidates,” says Campbell, noting the varied professional background of the 11 councillor-candidates. “Whoever gets in, the clear winner’s going to be Horton.”

Wednesday, Oct. 13, at the recreation centre. The Renfrew and District University Women’s Club is hosting the 7 p.m. event, which will feature candidates’ speeches and a question-and-answer session. Horton’s all-candidates forum was last night (Sept. 29) at the Horton community centre.

Coping With Breast Cancer Breast Cancer effects each and every one of us. You can help by joining the fight to help find a cure for Breast Cancer.

There is no right or wrong way to deal with breast cancer. It can bring on a range of emotions from guilt to denial to anxiety to fear. Women feel like they have lost control of their lives and are overwhelmed by all the decisions they have to make. According to the National Cancer Institute, some factors that influence coping include the stage of cancer, your age, your course of treatment, and your support system. But there are some general coping tips. Follow the coping mechanism that works best for you. • Reduce the stress of daily life by letting things go. You don’t have to do everything on your to-do list. • Turn to a support group. You’ll meet people who are enduring the same experience as you. If a group support system isn’t your style, turn to a family member, friend, counselor or clergyman with whom you feel safe and to whom you can confide your thoughts and feelings. • Treat yourself. Rent a movie you’ve always wanted to see, read a beach book that offers no intellectual stimulation, or take a long bubble bath.

• Don’t do everything yourself. If people offer to do things for you, don’t be afraid to take them up on it. Provide specifics about how they can help. Have a friend buy your groceries. Ask your mom to watch the kids after school. Let your sister drive you to a doctor’s appointment. It’s okay to get help on even the most routine of chores, errands and appointments. • It’s okay to feel sorry for yourself. Give yourself time to cry if that’s how you deal with stressful and emotional situations. It’s completely normal to dwell on your diagnosis and/or surgery. • Don’t waste time blaming yourself for your diagnosis. No one knows what causes breast cancer. It’s not your fault. • Don’t be hard on yourself. People will understand if

you don’t return phone calls or if you decline lunch or forget appointments. • Don’t go nonstop all day long. Take time out for naps. Even a 15- or 20-minute snooze can improve your overall mood. • Try to see the bright side of breast cancer: It can give you a renewed appreciation for life or help you rekindle old friendships or form new ones. • It’s okay to ask for a hug! People will be more than happy to give one to you. It will make you feel better, even if it’s for a brief moment.

Community gives back to local hero Rawn family benefit dance Oct. 1 at Renfrew Legion shaaima@msn.com

Larry Rawn loved his community and worked hard to support it. Now, the community is coming together to help his widow and family when they need it most. Larry drowned July 15 after saving a man’s life in the Bonnechere River, just south of Golden Lake. The 57-year-old avid angler and hunter was always on the go, often to the benefit of his community. Whether it was the popular Castleford ice fishing derby or his role as a director of the Castleford Union Cemetery, his selflessness and trademark laugh were much appreciated by family, neighbours and friends – and are greatly missed. “He had this laugh. I miss it. When he got going it was just infectious,” says Ann, Larry’s wife. Her husband was a big man with a big heart and the couple enjoyed spending time with their large, blended family, camping and lots of laughs. The Renfrew Legion hosts a fundraising dance this Friday, Oct. 1 to support the Rawn family. It’s a chance for the community to give back to a man who was so generous with others, say organizers, and recognize Larry as a true hero. Life for Ann, who also lost a son in October 2009 following a lengthy illness, has been an uphill battle of late. A personal support worker at Arnprior’s Grove Nursing Home, she hasn’t worked since the accident.

She hopes to return soon, but is struggling to keep up with the finances as insurance money works its way through a lengthy process and the bills keep coming. There is still work to be done on the couple’s River Road home, which they were working to restore. Larry’s friends have been good to come back and make progress on the renovations, says Ann, and their efforts and company alike are appreciated. She pledges to stay in the home that holds so many precious memories. “I’ll work through it, I’ll do everything I have to do,” she says. She is touched by the many reminders she’s had of just how important Larry was to those around him. Whether it was a special scrapbook lovingly created by granddaughter Taylor, a touching memorial tribute at this year’s Algonquins of Pikwakanagan annual pow-wow, or the beautiful decorative cross erected in Larry’s memory at the campground where Larry died – there are signs of his influence all around, says Ann. The Oct. 1 dance begins at 8 p.m. at the Renfrew Legion and features live entertainment by True County, St. Michael Country and other local favourites. A silent auction, door prizes and late lunch are part of the festivities. Admission is by donation. Alternatively, cheques can be made payable exclusively to the Rawn family and dropped off at the Renfrew Legion.

Candidate stresses management, communication skills Continued from Page 10 Hunt says Calabogie MotorSports Park is obviously “here to stay,” but it’s important council ensures noise guidelines are clear to both sides. “I would hope that down the road less dollars and staff time will be spent on the track and we can move on to other issues,” he says. Those include township initiatives to improve health and seniors services in the township. He suggests expanding the Calabogie Medical Centre by attracting nurse practitioners to support doctors. Council must continue to support the doctor

recruitment efforts being undertaken by Greater Madawaska and three other municipalities to address the doctor shortage, he adds. “We must keep the momentum going.” Hunt says council should also support efforts to provide senior housing to give retirees an option of staying in the township if and when they move out of their homes. However, new initiatives won’t get off the ground without the support of both community and council, he says, adding they need to be accomplished without being a tax burden on local ratepayers.

Hospice cookbook to be launched Oct. 1 at Scott’s Hardware bake sale PETER CLARK peter.clark@metroland.com

A fundraising bake sale Friday, Oct. 1 for Hospice Renfrew at Scott and Sons Hardware will have an added feature. Not only will people be able to purchase many tasty treats at the 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. event, the secret will be out of the bag on many of these great recipes. “We’ll be launching our new cookbook entitled Baking At Hospice,” Margaret Duggan said. “The book has 350 recipes, many from local people.” Duggan is a part of a cookbook committee on this project, which includes Verna Kedrosky and Kareen Lepine. The idea for a cookbook came up about a year and a half ago. One day every week, volunteers

go to Hospice to do baking. “It is good for people there and their families to be able to have a cake or muffin,” Kedrosky said. “Comfort, care, compassion.” “People started asking for recipes, and where they can get them,” Duggan explained. “Many of these recipes are in the cookbook.” “A lot of them (recipes in the book) have been tested by people and families at Hospice,” Kedrosky added with a smile. Many of the recipes in the book are from people you might know. “Dai Bassett of Heritage Radio is Welsh. He has his own recipe in (the book) for Welsh Cakes,” Duggan said. “My aunt, Isabelle Livingstone is 90,” Duggan added. “She has a few recipes in.” Duggan and Kedrosky note,

recipes are broken down into categories so they will be easier to find. Sandy Bassett, Susan Philips, Connie Watchorn, Lynda Coulas, Barbara Gallagher, Sharon Gallagher and Millie and Neil

Ritchie also helped with the cookbook committee. Many of them also contributed recipes. The book is available at the bake sale and book launch tomorrow (Oct. 1) at Scott and Sons Hardware for $12.

After that, Scott’s Hardware, and several other downtown outlets will be selling copies of the cookbook. All proceeds go toward caring for patients and families at Hospice Renfrew.

Continuity Forward 2010

Seeks G-M Ward 3 council berth Continued from Page 12 Police presence increased significantly and the suspected culprits moved on to the relief of residents, he says. DeGrandmont, and wife Juliette LeGal, moved to the area from Ottawa 12 years ago after his lengthy career that included work with the Royal Canadian Air Force, National Research Council, Government of the Northwest Territories, Parks Canada, and the Department of Indian and Northern Affairs. That management experience should prove useful on council, he says. Since moving to the area, he has served on the Ontario Power Generation advisory and Madawaska Highlands Lands Manage-

ment committees. Juliette has volunteered with the Matawatchan Market and the newly-formed seniors housing committee. “This (housing) project would offer a welcome advantage to senior citizens who wish to remain in their community but cannot continue to maintain their current residence,” he says. The greater distance to major centres and deep roots people have in the area make seniors housing options a priority for the ward, he explains. Greater Madawaska council members need to recognize that as well as the fact Griffith-Matawatchan attracts a different type of tourist than the Calabogie area, he adds.

Support the Renfrew Hospital Foundation healing garden at the country music show and dance Saturday, Oct. 2 at the Renfrew Armouries. The 8 p.m. to midnight show will feature champion fiddler and stepdancer Kelli Trottier. Accompanying Kelli will be her touring band The Mushy Peas. The group includes Ontario Conservatory of Music graduate Andrew Affleck on bass, University of Toronto music graduate Burke Carroll on steel; Jerry Clancy, who studied music at Queen’s University, on drums; and Andy Thompson, who attended St. Michael’s Choir School for 10 years, on keyboard. Individually and collectively, these musicians have toured the world. The well-known Countrymen from Renfrew will open the evening at 8 p.m. and take the stage to end the evening. “The Countrymen will celebrate their 50th anniversary in

2011 and are in continuous demand,” says a news release from the event’s organizers. The Countrymen’s 45th anniversary Alive and Kinkin’ CD sold out rapidly with all profits donated to Hospice Renfrew. Prior to their final set, a lunch will be served. Project chair Darrell Mooney says the objective of these events is to pair international talent with local entertainers to provide an outstanding evening of music and dance while generating funds for the RVH healing garden. The Oct. 2 event is the second event in the series. Last year’s special guest South Mountain have just returned from a European tour. Tickets are available from local and Valley outlets or at the Renfrew Victoria Hospital Foundation office. For more information on the event or the healing garden project, the foundation office should be contacted.

Kilos of Coins for Sunshine Coach among 2010 telethon features NORM DAGG The Sunshine Coach

A new campaign in support of Sunshine Coach called Kilos of Coins is aimed at the young and the young at heart. The goal is to encourage everyone to donate their spare change and help build as many kilos of coins as possible. Schools, businesses and individuals are invited to bring their coins and “weigh in” at the Reach For The Rainbow Telethon Sunday, Oct. 24 at Renfrew Collegiate

from 2 to 8 p.m. An industrial weigh scale will be set up at the telethon and as many presenters as possible will be featured live during the broadcast. Local schools are being provided with special collection paint cans to help gather coins among their student bodies and so far the response has been enthusiastic. “Community support has historically been critical to the success of Sunshine Coach and the Kilos of Coins campaign is an opportunity for us to reach out

and engage people young and old in assisting us to ensure that this service remains available to everyone in our community who needs it,” says Sunshine Coach administrator Norm Dagg.

“The need for this service has grown steadily in Renfrew and area over the past 25 years and it appears as if the need will only increase in the years to come.” All funds collected during the

The National Life Chain movement was born in a small town north of Sacramento, California in 1987. It has since spread across all of the United States and Canada. Life Chain is not a demonstration but rather a peaceful witness to the sacredness of life. It is held annually and requires that we stand in public for one hour, while holding a pro-life sign, quietly reflecting on the pro-life message which is to save lives and to change hearts.

Life Chain is intended for all Christians who declare abortion to be a grave call against God and mankind. This year Life Chain will be held on Sunday, Oct. 3 from 2 to 3 p.m. All participants should gather in front of the Renfrew Post Office on Raglan Street shortly before 2 p.m. and pick up a prolife sign. The Calabogie-Renfrew Pro-Life Association welcomes everyone who deems life sacred. We hope to see all our regular devoted participants on Oct. 3 and some new faces as well.

Did you miss the opportunity to buy or pick berries this year? If so, the RVH Auxiliary can solve your problem. We are offering loose, frozen berries delivered from Oxford, Nova Scotia. This year, for the first time, we have cranberries and raspberries as well as blueberries.

TONY DORZEK Horton Council

The berries come in 2-kilogram bags and can be ordered from the RVH Auxiliary Gift Shop. Call 432-4851 ext. 291 or drop in at the Hospital during regular hours to place your order. If you can’t call during the day, call 613-432-9177 or 613-433-3536 between 7:00 and 10:00 p.m.

Questions or Concerns

The order should be in by Oct. 6th. Pick-up date is Oct. 26th.

Timberwolves learn tough lesson: no lead is safe PETER CLARK peter.clark@metroland.com

When the drive for a Valley Division playoff spot in the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League heats up after Christmas, Renfrew hockey fans hope the three points the Wolves let slip away this past weekend don’t come back to haunt them. On Friday night before the home folks at the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre, the Wolves carried a 5-1 lead in the third period before a four-goal explosion allowed the Arnprior Packers to slip out the back door with a 5-5 tie. On Sunday, the Wolves ran out of fuel with a 3-0 lead. When the dust settled, the homestanding Gatineau Mustangs had escaped with a 4-3 victory. The results level Renfrew’s record to 22-and-1 through five games. The Wolves were full value for the 5-1 lead they enjoyed for close to 50 minutes versus Arnprior. But they fell into snooze control, and in the wacky world of junior hockey it took only six minutes and 33 seconds for the Packers to draw even. Goals from David Nelson, Marc Vacher, Matt Crozier and Taylor Collins, with 6:12 remaining, tied the score. Ryan Eady had an earlier marker for the visitors. The Wolves jumped into the lead on the

strength of a pair from Jesse Riopelle, and singles by Brady Clouthier, Kirk Skebo and Ryan Cuthill. Wolves netminder Richard Barr faced 33 shots while Arnprior’s German Tsatsura challenged 30. Neither team could generate much in the five-minute overtime session. A spirited scrap in the third period saw the two No. 10s have at it. Timberwolf Steven Powell and Arnprior’s Teddy Suckow earned their fighting majors and game misconducts. Overall, the Wolves were dealt 10 penalties and Arnprior eight. Derrin Lehoux was named Renfrew Pizzeria Wolves player-of-the-game. Sunday was another frustrating end for the Wolves, only this time, they have nothing to show for it. In a Buckingham rink always tough to win in, the Wolves had the Gatineau Mustangs in a 3-0 hole, and still led 3-2 entering the third period. But again, an opponent clawed back, this time to steal victory from the jaws of defeat. Josh Hartwig, Clouthier and Kurtis Leclaire were Timberwolf goalscorers. Cedrik Mayrand netted the game winner for Gatineau with 3:15 left in the third period. Barr faced 33 shots in the Wolves goalcrease.

WOLVES HOWLINGS Long-time Renfrew hockey supporters were saddened to hear of the passing of Lennox Sterling last week, Sterling was a stalwart on defence with the 1977 Junior B Lions championship team. He also coached with the Stittsville Royals two or three years ago. Son Ryan currently plays for the Ottawa West Golden Knights. Wolves coach Cal Smith was pleased

with the effort his team put forth in both weekend encounters, but added, now they have to learn how to put games away. “The team played well. We just got to learn how to win in the third period.” The Wolves are in Almonte this Saturday at 7:30 p.m. The next home game is Friday, Oct. 8 versus Stittsville. The Wolves and Packers will have a rematch at Arnprior’s Nick Smith Centre on Thanksgiving Sunday, Oct. 10.

I heard a piece of Blue Jays history on the radio last Thursday afternoon. You might say I took the scenic route. It was certainly by accident. While on the way out to Ma-Te-Way Park to catch the RCI Raiders take on Almonte following the Pigskin Parade, I had the radio on Team 1200. Jim Rome had a college football or basketball coach on, so I flipped the station to Team 990 Montreal. ‘Let’s see what Habs fans are saying about the booing of goaltender Carey Price the night before,’ I thought. But a sportscast was on, and they mentioned the Blue Jays and Seattle were scoreless in the first inning. On to Oldies 1310 I went, on the chance they’d be broadcasting a weekday afternoon game. They were. Jose Bautista was batting, and two pitches later, he cleared the left-field wall for No. 50, the first Blue Jay ever to do so. Only 26 players in Major League history have hit 50 home runs in a season. Bautista became the first to achieve the feat for the only run in a 1-0 game. On the run: Renfrew’s Rachel Folkema finished third (1:42.50) in her women’s under-19 half marathon age group at the 21st Toronto Marathon Sept. 26. Team Diabetes member Hughie Nolan of Renfrew in the 65-69 posted a personal

World champion threepeat: You may recall wrestler Martine Dugrenier of Montreal visiting Renfrew schools last year with the Olympic Torch and talking about her adventures en route to winning her second World Championship. Well. Chalk up another. Dugrenier has now captured her third World Championship. She won her four matches to successfully defend her world title in the 67-kilogram class in Moscow Sept. 10. * * * Floyd Smith was the first captain of the Buffalo Sabres. And for this week: Chicago topped Green Bay Monday to become the NFL’s last remaining undefeated team. Since 1992, the Packers have had only two starting quarterbacks, Brett Favre and now Aaron Rodgers. Take a guess as to how many signal callers the Bears have employed during that time.

ANDY SKLEPOWICZ Renfrew Curling Rink

With a successful registration behind us and the installation of the ice proceeding, it is time to look ahead to the start of curling. The board had set an earlier opening as one of its goals this year and with the hard work of our iceman, Rick Allen, and the dedication of Dwight Hayward and his team of volunteers, it looks like the ice should be ready. A wonderful cleaning crew has managed to turn the remains of a construction zone back into a sparkling, welcoming club. Having the ice ready before Thanksgiving allows us to run a number of clinics and to provide some less-structured time for our members for practice and fun curling or just to come out and throw some rocks and get the rust off. The new curler clinics are open to both registered new curlers and also anyone from the community who would like to try the sport to see if it is for them. These are provided free of charge and will consist of two parts, on Tuesday, Oct. 5 and Thursday, Oct. 7 from 7 to 9 p.m. You can register for these by calling Andy at 432-6725 as there is limited space. Also on Tuesday at 1 p.m. there will be a clinic for our returning ladies and on Wednesday, Oct. 6 at 7 p.m., there will be a clinic for any returning curlers who want to brush up on their skills. This Monday and Wednesday at 1 p.m. and Friday at 10 a.m. ice time will be provided for the men and Rob Warren has pick-up games planned and an opportunity to practice. Thursday at 1 p.m. will be available for mixed pick-up curling, while Monday, Oct. 4 at 7 p.m. is set aside for open curling. Just show up for any or all of these and enjoy some preseason play or behind the glass scouting. If you have missed registering or have just put it off, you can drop off your registration at the club, If you need a form come to the club during any of the open curling times or do it on line at renfrewcurlingrink.ovca.com. Don’t sit at home bored for another winter when you could be enjoying fun, friendship and exercise with a great bunch of people.

Fine start for the Jaguars

peter.clark@metroland.com

Football ties don’t happen often, but one came down the turnpike Thursday afternoon. On the heels of Renfrew Collegiate Institute’s annual Pigskin Parade, the Senior Raiders and visiting Almonte Thunderbolts battled to a 6-6 draw on the Lindsay Field turf at Ma-Te-Way Park. It was the 2010 Lanark-Renfrew High School Football League home opener for RCI. The Senior Raiders scored first on their opening possession when quarterback Cooper Brown called for a reverse. It was well executed, and from 40 years away, Cameron Shields steamrolled his way around, through and by Almonte defenders and into the end zone. That turned out to be the game’s only touchdown. The attempt to add on the extra point from the boot of Matthew Sharpe sailed wide. However, the Thunderbolts were able to claw their way deep into RCI territory in the third quarter, and came away with a pair of field goals on consecutive series to tie the game. Both teams’ defences took over front and centre through a scoreless fourth quarter. Sharpe enjoyed a fine afternoon punting the football to keep the Almonte offence pinned back much of the time. When they were on the brink of a threat, the Raiders turned in three critical quarterback sacks. One was a combined effort while Brennan Inglis registered a pair. “It was a good hardfought game,” RCI coach Todd Stewart observed. Both teams got overzealous at times in the penalty department. It was a tough 2010 baptismal for the Junior Raiders who were doused by an Almonte Thunderbolts team that was more than ready for any challenge.

RCI’s 49-7 defeat was over almost before it began. For all of their scoring, two crucial plays in the game where turned in by the Thunderbolts defence in the opening quarter as they stopped the Raiders on third down and inches twice.

Click-thump, click-thump .... Powerful memory of Terry Fox still resonates with St. Michael’s School staff member STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com

It was a wet and weary-looking day, like some experienced by Terry Fox during his Marathon of Hope 30 years ago. All youngsters participating in St. Michael’s Catholic School’s own Terry Fox Run last Friday were born after Fox ran his Marathon of Hope. But he gave, and continues to give, others hope through his courageous efforts. Fox died in 1981, but one participant in Friday’s event will never forget the poignant and up-close experience he had with the iconic Canadian. That participant is educational assistant Larry Maltby. In 1980 he and a friend were returning from western Canada to live in Toronto. His friend was driving Maltby’s 1970 half-ton just east of Thunder Bay, as Maltby dozed off, with a book in his lap. The truck was stopped for highway construction, when he heard a sound that’s still fresh in his memory. “It was a hot day and I was half asleep and I hear click-thump, click-thump, click-thump,” remembers Maltby. “I look up and my jaw dropped, as Terry Fox was running past my truck.” A few days later, Fox ended his Marathon of Hope, since his cancer had returned and sapped his energy. “I was just stunned. It was amazing,” says Maltby of that special, but brief, moment in time. Thirty years later, Maltby says: “He’s one of my heroes because he faced adversity. He had the intensity and the fortitude to get up and tackle the road every day. He just soldiered on. “He had the heart to carry on, but his body just wouldn’t let him,” says Maltby, who still shares the story with students at the Douglas elementary school. About 140 students, plus staff members, walked a three-kilometre route Friday to raise funds for the Canadian Cancer Society.

Participants in the Terry Fox Run at St. Michael’s Catholic School include Yolanda Prange and daughter Kiera. Mercury photo by Steve New-

The evening of Sept. 10 was an exciting one as contestants and officials gathered in the chapel at the Quail Creek Retirement Centre for the very first Valley Vintage Advanced Toastmasters Club contest, evaluation contest and humorous speech contest. There were three competitors in each category.

The contest began with test speaker Tony Smith who was evaluated by each of the contestants. The judges then scored the results and a winner was declared at the end of the meeting.

Saba guest speaker at Oct. 5 RAG meeting

Burnstown 2010 sculptor show Oct. 1 to 11 CHERYL BABINEAU Bittersweet Art, Fog Run Studio

What do France and Canadian Pacific Railway have in common? Nothing really other than both subjects are the muses that of late occupy the mind of Burnstown sculptor Richard Gill. Having produced a body of work for his show each year of the past 38, he continues to have an insatiable appetite for new material, often historical in nature. In 1871 British Columbia decided to join Canada but only if the government agreed to build a continental railway. The rest is history, a history that fascinates Gill and compels him to document the subject in his chosen medium; the beauty and durability of sculpted and fired clay. Within the depths of relief Gill has captured events like, the Last Spike, Lady MacDonald’s insistence that she ride on the cowcatcher to enjoy the magnificent scenery of the Rockies, and scenes that depict the actual construction of the rail with the Chinese workers (many

The spring journey began with an overnight ferry taken from Portsmouth to the magnificent port of St. Malo, then to La Rochelle (both points of embarkment for migrants to the New World). In fact, at least 90

per cent embarked from the port of La Rochelle. The foray continued with a drive through the lush Loire valley en route to the rugged coast of Brittany, and of course, no visit to France would be complete without a visit to Paris in the spring. Perhaps therein lies the pas de deux. Both are sub-

jects that indeed played significant roles in Canada’s history. The show opens Oct. 1 and continues daily to Oct. 11 at the artist’s Fog Run Studio at Bittersweet Gallery in Burnstown. For more information call 613.432.5254 or 613.433.9990, or check the web at www. burnstown.ca/bittersweet.

The ‘kids back to school’ – a statement that gears our daily life whether you have a young family or are retired. It means we are not just laying back enjoying life but are on the fast track of not enough time. All right, I sound a little bit frazzled? Yes, because it seems that September disappeared into a fog of too many things happening too fast. It is time to take a breath. The one thing that October brings us is Thanksgiving.

Look in today’s

Cunningham: Strong Horton future would include more small and medium businesses Continued from Page 14 Now he’s seeking a position on Horton council and getting his Elect Cunningham signs around the township. Having bought five properties in Horton Township over the last few years, he says he definitely has experience working with the planning committee and other strengths to share. “I do consider myself a great communicator, and I have a lot of experience with negotiations,” says Cunningham, a single father with two adult-aged daughters and five grandchildren. “I really believe in small- and mediumsized business to keep your taxes down in the future,” he adds. “Getting Toyota was great, and the people responsible for that deserve a lot of credit.” But the expansion of George Jackson Toyota, from Renfrew to Horton, may be an anomaly. Horton’s tax base in the not-too-distant future will improve if the township administration and council focus on small- and medium-sized businesses, says Cunningham. Horton’s share of highway-commercial zoning should benefit the township down the road, he points out. At the same time, he says the current council has to watch its spending, after

borrowing to help realize major upgrades to the Horton community rink and Garden of Eden Road. “We probably can’t borrow too much more money,” he says. Cunningham was asked for his opinion on building a cement pad for the playing surface to extend the season and create the avenues for fundraising. He said he’d prefer talking to more residents before commenting. On Horton’s lime stabilization project, which began accepting untreated septage in September, he said he wanted to talk to more farmers before making an informed comment. In striving to land a berth on Horton council, he says he hopes voters hear and see the following: “Ray Cunningham is a solid, well-informed person. I think he’s a great leader who listens very well. He’s a problem-solver who listens intently before making a decision.” Cunningham was only 15 when his father (Basil) died. His mother (Margurite) lives in a Smiths Falls nursing home but hopes to move to a Renfrew County long-term care facility in the near futurte. In his free time, Cunningham enjoys golf (with a 14 handicap), swimming, boating and downhill skiing.

Eastern bluebirds gather for the trip south Marian and Bob Colterman have had pairs of nesting Eastern Bluebirds at their home for over 20 years now. The birds return every year to raise their young in one of the Colterman’s many nest boxes. This year the Coltermans were rewarded with a show of over 40 bluebirds perching on a hydro wire just outside their front window. This event occurs somewhere every year, but it is a rare sight to see it close by. The flock will travel to one of their favourite feeding locations every day as they put on extra layers of fat for the long trip ahead. The birds can double their weight before heading to the southeastern United States, Mexico and Central America. Since they do not roost or feed near the ocean they will very likely miss any ill effects of the oil spill. They will feed on sumack seeds, winterberry berries and buckthorn berries until they leave Canada. As they move south into warmer habitat a wide variety of berries are available to them.

JIM FERGUSON SCENE FROM THE HAWK’S EYE displayed the main field marks: bright yellow legs, a maroon head, neck and throat and a shaggy greenish crest. A retiring species that will often goes unnoticed because it remains close to its feeding and nesting territory. The Green Heron is one of the few birds that baits for fish using a variety of lures. A piece of a bright coloured toadstool, a feather, an earth worm, an injured bug or a small fish that the bird has whacked on a limb a few times to dampen its enthusiasm are favourites. The lures bring food to where the heron can stab them with its sharp bill. The best results are achieved with live bait. A lesson for us all. The Green Heron flies with slow, steady wingbeats, usually with head retracted and legs extended beyond the body. GRAY PARTRIDGE

GREEN HERON Richard Brennan saw a Green Heron in a swamp just east of Renfrew. The bird

What should you do if you find a sick, injured or orphaned wild animal? Many well-intentioned people

duced as a game bird to North America in the early 1900’s. They are more often seen in the fall and winter than in the spring and summer. Coveys, numbering 20 or more birds, forage on the ground in open fields and on crop stubble. During winters when snow cover is deep the birds suffer from lack of food. To avoid danger the birds walk or run rapidly on the ground and crouch down in the long grass. It flies short distances (usually about 100 metres, or 328 feet), low to the ground with rapid wingbeats, alternating with glides. When threatened they explode into the air distracting any aerial predator. During the winter they congregate in tight groups in deep snow. BUSY BIRDBATH Lately the rain has been keeping our bird baths well filled and the birds have been taking advantage of the situation. Tracey Marki saw a brightly coloured trio, a Northern Cardinal, a Blue Jay and an American Robin enjoying a splash in the bath. Birds bathe in water and in dust to keep their feathers clean and in good condition. The action of splashing in the water helps to dislodge insects from the feath-

ers. Dust absorbs extra oil and dirt which is later washed away by bath water. If you watch the birds at your bird bath you will notice that different birds use the water in different ways. Some splash about sending water in every direction, others flutter their wing pushing the water into their feathers. It should be noted that birds go into a shallow trance when bathing and are easy prey for a stray cat. It is therefore a good idea to place the bird bath out in the open away from any shrubs that would conceal a predator. WHITE-CROWNED SPARROWS ARRIVE The first wave of White-crowned Sparrows arrived at several feeders this past week. The bright, fresh black and white stripes were a pleasant sight to see. Most members of this species nest on the Tundra and we see them only when they are coming and going. If these sparrows or the White-throated Sparrows arrive at your feeders please let us know. Enjoy your birding. Ila and Jim Ferguson, 5313 River Road, R R 5, Renfrew, Ontario, K7V 3Z8. Phone 613-432-2738 or email jamesh@nrtco.net.

injured or orphaned when that is often not the case. Where an animal is in need of help, it requires specialized care

to recover and return to the wild. For help, call the Ontario SPCA Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre at 1-888-668-7722.

Woodlot owners to gather for conference at National Research Forest Woodlot owners will participate in a silviculture bus tour as well as a sugar maple walk on site and hear presentations and share their knowledge and experience on relevant forest research. There is a long history of private woodlot ownership and management in Renfrew County. Historically farmers and landowners managed their woodlot to meet their own firewood and lumber needs. But as the economy of the county has grown and evolved over the years, private land forests have become increasingly important to the regional economy. About 53 percent of Renfrew County’s productive forest sits on private land. The annual woodlot conference provides woodlot owners with the tools to manage their forests effectively and profitably. The conference partners include the County of Renfrew, the Renfrew County Stewardship

Council, the Renfrew County Forest Stewardship Committee, the Renfrew County Chapter of the Ontario Woodlot Owners Association, Ottawa Valley Forest Inc., and the Algonquin College Forestry Program.

So when we had eaten, we collected all the containers we could find and we went picking. “In no time our containers were full and we were sitting on top of a high bluff overlooking the sea, eating our fill of delicious wild blueberries. “t was a glorious, sunny day and out to sea we suddenly spot-

MP Gallant says ag policies working

rural Canada is well represented in the Conservative government. “As a member of the Conservative Agricultural caucus, I am pleased to be able to give a real voice for farmers,” said Gallant. “I appreciate the time our agricultural producers take to share with me their input on how to improve existing programs. Canada’s Economic Action Plan targeted Canada’s agricultural producers. For example, the Canadian Agricultural Loans Act passed by our government has seen a 45% increase in

“With hog and cattle prices at close to a five- year high, this is a clear sign our agricultural policies are working,” says Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant. “While I recognize that there is always more that can be done, any good news for our farmers is welcome news.” In a Sept. 24 news release Gallant said

loans registered over last year which represents an increase of 76% in loan dollars registered.” The release says, when it comes to business risk management, there are a number of programs to assist farmers. AgriInvest provides a matching government payment to a producer account. AgriInvest Kickstart paid out $562 million in federal funds to help producers start their accounts. “AgriStability provides payments when farmers experience large margin declines. AgriInsurance pays

when a farmer experiences production losses and AgriRecovery provides assistance for producers hit by regional disasters,” says the release. Gallant says the government has had considerable success seeking out new markets for Canadian agricultural products with trade missions to open and expand market access to the United States, Mexico, Cuba, Russia, Japan, Hong Kong, China, South Korea, India, Morocco, Jordan, Saudia Arabia, UAE, Uruguay, Peru, Colombia, and the European Union.

Hello, moose, are you heading to the river for a swim? You know the feeling you get when you sense there is someone staring intensely at you as you are doing something. I had that feeling when I was loading the last of my second cut round bales of hay. It’s a long way from the road so why would I sense that I’m being spied on? I looked around behind me and there was a deer watching intently. I turned the tractor around and stared back. The deer then ambled away heading towards the creek. Noisy farm equipment and tractors don’t bother wildlife such as coyotes, deer and Canada geese. They’re on guard but

so that deer are everywhere. I had never seen a moose close up until this past summer. A moose and her calf were spotted in our neighbourhood a few times this spring. Actually, a moose was seen in a field across from our farm. It was a hot Sunday morning in June when I was on the way to church that I saw a moose not more than 75 feet from the road. I would have missed the moose if it were not for a car parked along the road. The occupants were looking at the field. That’s when I saw this huge animal with short hair like a horse. At first I thought it was a horse. The hair was blackish and slick – no

MAYNARD VAN DER GALIEN RURAL ROUTES only move away when you come close. It’s the humans walking silently in a field that they don’t trust. That’s hard to figure out. It’s probably because they see humans as hunters. When I was a youngster growing up on our bush farm near Eganville, we never saw deer. The only time we saw deer were dead ones during hunting season when hunters displayed their kill on the top of their vehicles. It’s only in the last 20 years or

old shaggy hair at all. Photos of moose I’ve seen show them with rough-looking hair. The long face told me it was a moose. The moose was trotting along the hayfield. I drove beside it and could see it was perspiring and bothered by the heat. The animal was heading to the river a short distance away so I rolled down the window and called out if he was going to the river for a swim. I wanted to see how the mighty beast reacted to my voice. He slowed down and stopped and looked straight ahead, but didn’t even look my way. Grrrr.. My camera was at home. I watched it some more standing there before I drove off.

HERITAGE

1935: Renfrew Mercury keeps readers up to date on all things political SEPTEMBER 29,1910 RENFREW RUGBY PLAYER NOW IN OTTAWA: Mr. Harold F. Smith, who played a star game on the RCI rugby team for the past few years, is now attending Ottawa University and has been singled out for a position on the half line of the Ottawa College team. The Ottawa look on him as particularly strong and believe he is a decided acquisition to the strength of the team. The Ottawa Journal this week refers to him as “expected to prove a sensation” and the Free Press believes he will help to strengthen the College rugby team. O’BRIEN THEATRE PRODUCTIONS: Patrons of the O’Brien Theatre will have presented, for their amusement Oct. 4, the snappiest of all fun shows, Mr. W.I. Stuart’s production of that merry musical mixup My Wife’s

Celebrate history and heritage on final week of 2010 Rural Ramble

OLGA LEWIS FROM THE OLD FILES Family. The play abounds with jingling music popular songs and the show is equipped with everything new and bright, with pretty girls, funny comedians and singers who can sing. The musical members have been selected with great care, and are full of snap and go; the fun is fast and furious and promises to be the event of the season. This play, with its funny mixups and throbbing with life, provides a most delightful entertainment at the O’Brien Theatre Oct. 4. OCTOBER 3, 1935 WHERE TO FIND IT: This week’s Mercury is more or less

Oct. 2 and 3 marks the final weekend of the Rural Ramble with sites showcasing Ottawa Valley arts and culture and sites highlighting Ottawa Valley history and heritage. • Take part in the celebrated Madawaska Valley Studio Tour and visit the private studios of Valley artists. • Help build a giant paper-maché turtle and vote in the recycled art

of a political paper. But we make no apology for that. People are talking politics and some are even thinking politics. On page six will be found the platform of the four parties — Liberal, Conservative, C.C.F. and Reconstruction with a picture of the leader of each party. The first page gives a report of the nomination meeting at Renfrew. Editorial will be found on page two this week, as well as the article on “Money-Making” by John G. Kirkwood. Mr. Kirkwood is a most interesting man and his writings are intensely interesting. The Mercury is favoured to have such an able writer as a contributor in its columns. A WOLF ON THE ROAD IN GOSHEN LOCALITY: Public School Inspector Lees does not doubt the truth of the wolf stories which have come out of “the land of Goshen” a few miles from

competition at the South of 60 Arts Centre. • Enjoy work of the Renfrew Art Guild at the 10th Calabogie Artfest. • Browse one of the many art galleries in the Ottawa Valley, including Stone Meadows Kitchen Shop & Gallery in Renfrew, the Come See Gallery in Cobden, and the Valley Artisans’ Co-op gallery in Deep River.

Renfrew. Motoring in a road in that neighbourhood on Monday afternoon, he saw a member of the Lupus family cross the road in front of him. And he does not come home and speak of it as “a large wolf ”. In dimensions he rated this example of the timber wolf as on a par with the bush or prairie wolves which he has seen in Western Canada. He presumes that it is yet to grow some. SEPTEMBER 23, 1970 FATE OF ARMORY UNKNOWN: Renfrew Council received a letter Tuesday evening at their regular session in which they were informed that if a sale of the armories could not be arranged with the Agricultural Society, steps would have to be taken for a sale to other parties or for the demolition of the building. The

• Celebrate Kashubian-Canadian culture with the Wilno Heritage Society. • Let the Valley Arts Council take you behind the scenes of a theatre at Festival Hall. • Paint a pictograph, carve soap stone and learn about Algonquin First Nations’ heritage at The Algonquin Way Cultural Centre.

letter explained that, seeing the council had indicated they were no longer interested in purchasing the building, the Agricultural Society would now be contacted to see if they wished to negotiate the purchase of the building, and Council would be advised as to the progress made. YACMR TO WALK SATURDAY: The 12 members of YACMR, Youth Across Canada Mentally Retarded, are ready for their walk this coming Saturday. Beth McIntyre, who is in charge of the walk which goes rain or shine, stated close to 333 were expected to take part, starting from the cenotaph, going down to River Road and back again. Some adult help has been promised but more would be appreciated, Miss McIntyre stated. Olga Lewis is available to help with research. Contact olewis@ sympatico.ca.

• Go trailblazing and horseback riding at Frontier Trails. • Visit Valley Heritage Radio and see a radio station in full operation (kids can speak “on air” with a DJ!) This year’s event is free to the public but there may be fees for specific activities. Visit www.ottawavalley.travel for more information.

PREPAREDNESS TIPS  Install a smoke alarm on every level of your home and outside of sleeping areas.  Test smoke alarm batteries every month and change them at least once a year.  Make sure everyone in your family knows at least two ways to escape from every room of your home.  Practice your fire escape plan at least twice a year. Designate a meeting spot outside and a safe distance from your home. Make sure all family members know the meeting spot.  Have your family practice escaping from you home, practicing low crawling and at different times of the day. Make sure everyone knows how to call 9-1-1.  Consider escape ladders for sleeping areas on the second or third floor. Make sure everyone in your home learns how to use them ahead of time by reading the manufacturer’s instructions and understanding the steps to use them. Store them near the window where they will be used. SCOTT PHILLIPS

 Teach your family to stop, drop to the ground, and roll if their clothes catch on fire. Practice this with your children.  Once you get out of your home, stay out under all circumstances, until a fire official gives you permission to go back inside.  Never open doors that are warm to the touch.  If smoke, heat, or flames block your exit routes, stay in the room with the door closed. If possible, place a towel under the door and call the fire department to alert them to your location in the home. Go to the window and signal for help waving a bright-coloured cloth or a flashlight. Do not break the window, but open it from the top and bottom.
