FOR THE HEALTH OF IT Sawyer and Sadie Wilson try their hand, and hips, at hulahooping during Saturday morning’s Hoops for the Health of It. About 50 people stopped by, as the event took place adjacent to the farmers market at Low Square. Hula hoops were a huge North American craze in the 1950s, and Renfrew resident Kate Windle is doing her part to resurrect their popularity. For story, see Page 31. Mercury photo by Steve Newman

Air-lifted to Ottawa

A two-vehicle collision at Butler and South McNaughton roads in Admaston-Bromley Township about 3:30 p.m. Tuesday resulted in serious injuries to one driver. Steven England of Pembroke is charged with failure to stop at a stop sign. The other driver was Douglas resident Sheldon McLaughlin, who was air-lifted to Ottawa General Hospital. Renfrew OPP Const. Andre Kolkowski is investigating.

Two bodies found in the Mountain Chute area southwest of Calabogie this weekend have been confirmed as those of a missing elderly couple from Gatineau. Lily Blondin, 90, and Jim Dunne, 86, were missing since Wednesday from Ottawa. Why they were on a remote gravel road back of the Mountain Chute dam is a mystery, although they did enjoy travelling. Police say foul play is not suspected. It appears that when their car became disabled on the rough gravel road off Norcan Lake Road, Dunne tried to walk out to get help. His body was found Sunday about two kilometres from his car. When he didn’t return, Blondin, who is legally blind, also left the vehicle, but didn’t get far before she died. Lanark OPP report the body of a woman was found about 11:45 a.m. Saturday by an all-terrain-rider in the bush on a trail. A large number of police descended on the area Saturday afternoon. On Sunday, police reported finding the man’s body about noon. Police also reported finding a 2008 grey four-door Mazda belonging to the couple near where the bodies were found in Lanark County just south of the Renfrew County border. The area is a popular weekend riding area for ATVers and there were many riders in the area Saturday, but not earlier in the week. Blondin and Dunne were last seen at their doctor’s office near the Westgate Mall in Ottawa Wednesday. They were reported missing to Ottawa Police Thursday. See BODIES, Page 25

ELECTION

Candidates court electorate LUCY HASS

lucy.hass@metroland.com

Since amalgamation in 1999, there hasn’t been a municipal election in the merged township of Admaston-Bromley. That is all about to change. When the ballots are counted Monday, Oct. 25, the people will have chosen a mayor and councillors for three wards. Only Ward One incumbent Dirk Rook has been acclaimed. The Balsam Hill-Horton Women’s Institute hosted the event and president Gail Reid was moderator. The respectful and informative evening wrapped up in true country style with coffee, cookies and an informal meet-and-greet time. MAYOR’S RACE Incumbent Mayor Raye-Anne Briscoe is being challenged for the township’s top office by Councillor Jack Kelly. Kelly said he has no axes to grind, nor hatchets to bury, but “it’s time for change.” He wants to continue doctor recruitment efforts, keep the township financially stable and encourage growth. “I refuse to make promises I cannot keep,” he said, but told the audience he welcomes ideas, help or just a friendly chat. “My phone number is not a secret,” he said. “I would be proud and honoured to stand up and represent you as your mayor.” Incumbent Briscoe, a self-described “proud farmer,” identified the two distinct roles of mayor: to represent Admaston-Bromley 24-7, and to serve as head of council and “set the stage” for policies, procedures and programs that are implemented by staff. “You need, at all times, to be aware of the pulse of your community and you need a passion for learning,” Briscoe said. “I have to know the ‘why’ before I even consider the ‘how’ and ‘what.’ She also spoke of opportunity that knocks, opportunity you seek out and opportunity you create. Under the first category, she referred to stimulus money used to upgrade Douglas streets and expand the municipal office. Busing for Douglas students and renewed recycling efforts fell in the second category. Renfrew health village activities were proudly proclaimed opportunity created. “This is not a doctor recruitment initiative. It is all about economic development,” she said, noting the potential for job creation. Briscoe also underscored council’s introduction of a question period at the end of every council meeting. “The weaker the council, the more in camera meetings they have,” she said. COUNCILLOR RACES Before having to leave for another commitment, Ward Two candidate John Holyer outlined his life and work experience since coming to Canada in 1971. His key issues included the Species at Risk Act, telling ratepayers that if a species at risk is found on your property “you’ve had it.” He also has issues with the Mineral Act. He will challenge incumbent Robert Dick who has served council for 13 years. “My opinion is there are no real issues, just jobs to be done,” Dick said. Those jobs include doctor recruitment. Dick noted his involvement with local

farming organizations, knowledge of finances, and ability to compromise. He said he wants to continue to be part of “this progressive municipality.” The Ward Three candidates are Ray Pender and Donna Blimkie. Pender presented his family and work history, plus a long list of active involvement in numerous groups and municipal service on everything from the local veterinarians’ committee and Renfrew Agricultural Society to being a fence viewer. “I know Admaston-Bromley Township is a great place to live,” he said. He said he would like to see improvements in waste management – in particular, recycling and composting – as well as roads, recreation, youth services and doctor recruitment. “I like working with people and feel could contribute,” he told the ratepayers. Pender said the township needs to create opportunities to move youth away from the electronic play station and get outside to play. Challenger Donna Blimkie described herself as a “hard-working, energetic team player.” She considers her workplace achievements, experience and an analytical mind as potential assets on council. Blimkie also made a personal commitment to be available to listen to ratepayers’ concerns. “I embrace the open-doors policy,” she said, adding, “I’m not a yes person and I’m not afraid to stand up for what I believe in.” She called for efforts to keep young people in the area and develop a long-term strategy for doctor recruitment. Some other issues on her agenda include the tax rate, endangered species act, and predatory animals such as wolves and coyotes. Susan Kallies and Michael Donohue will square off in the Ward Four race. Kallies said she was raised to be honest, ward-working and respectful, and gained valuable skills through her customer service and caregiver experience. She said she would be opened-minded, listen to citizen concerns and be well-researched. “We have a wonderful community,” Kallies said. “Council has done a good job; but change is inevitable.” She identified doctor recruitment as a key issue, along with health promotion, preventative medicine, and more home support for seniors. “Let’s keep the family farm a term of the present; not the past,” she added. In closing, she noted a top priority, “to ensure our tax dollars are wisely spent.” Michael Donohue agreed AdmastonBromley is “absolutely a fantastic place to live.” His key concern is that the municipality is being shortchanged. “We are not getting our fair share from the province,” he said, noting that while the township gets gas tax from the federal government, not so from the province. He said the municipality must also look at alternative revenue streams and he stressed the importance of knowing how to “squeeze a dollar.” Donohue said the township is “blessed with exceptional staff working on behalf of us” and, by and large, the township’s roads are in “very good shape.” He also noted “fantastic” recreation. But the township must continue moving forward. “We need to stand on the shoulders of those who came before us,” and continue to build a warm and caring community, he said.

Municipal candidates address packed house of voters in Horton Township PETER CLARK

peter.clark@metroland.com

There was no clear winner at the Horton all-candidates night last Wednesday, but one thing is certain. People in Horton are interested in the well-being of their township. A capacity crowd at the community centre listened to three mayoralty candidates, 11 people running for four council spots, and two others vying for English Catholic School candidacy. The evening was hosted by the Castleford Women’s Institute. Following the singing of O Canada, led by retiring Horton Mayor Bob Johnston, CWI president Mae Craig welcomed all to the function, and explained the format. Each of the three candidates running for mayor – Rod Ballantyne, David Bennett and Don Eady – were given five minutes at the microphone, and three more minutes of closing comments. Councillor hopefuls David Brown, Glen Campbell, Ray Cunningham, Tony Dorzek, Bob Kingsbury, Jamey Larone, Theresa Lonergan, Sheri Sexton, Richard Walker, Margaret Whyte and Greg Zavitske were given three and two minutes respectively to speak, as were potential school trustees Bruce McIntyre and Anne Smith. There was also a question-and-answer period. MAYORS New to the Horton political scene, Ballantyne said he wasn’t running against the previous council. “They have made this a better township,” he observed of his predecessors. “I’m running for change,” he said. Ballantyne said it’s time to change how the township is governed, “how staff conducts their business and reviews their roles. It is your agenda, not our agenda. “We must keep an eye out for the future,” Ballantyne added, “and change how you as Horton taxpayers are involved before, during and after decisions are made. “I’m the dark horse. I’m the new guy,” he said. “If you really want change, I’m the one to vote for. I’ll honour that trust that you put in me.” If elected mayor, Bennett said he would

like to see Horton become the best community in Ontario for children and adults. A former two-time deputy reeve and council member since 1998, Bennett said existing committees are working. Horton has refinished three roads, including Garden of Eden Road, and brought in several businesses during his current four-year term on council. “The fire committee has given the fire department whatever they need,” Bennett added. “I wouldn’t change the structure of the committees. We have achieved a great deal.” The township has also added an office complex, changerooms and roof cover to the rink at the community centre, he added. Bennett would like to attract muchneeded doctors to the area. The township also needs cellular phone and Internet service improvements, he said. Eady, a 10-year veteran of the Horton scene, completes the list running for the mayor’s chair. “First and foremost, I believe Horton is about people,” he said. “Look at what we have: Storyland, the Valley Bluegrass, the Renfrew Golf Club, Heritage Radio, just to name a few.” Another thing Horton has is a rink, but Eady said, with the money put in, it can be better handled. “We need it 52 weeks a year and not about 12.” Eady said the township would be better served if committees were cut down to two people. “It’s quite obvious to everyone here, Horton is looking for change,” Eady said. “We do have to be more open to the people.” Improvements to health services and doctor recruitment are vital, Eady said. COUNCIL The 11 councillor candidates took to the podium to express what they can bring to the residents of Horton. “We need a concentrated effort to repair our roads,” Dave Brown said of soft shoulders and potholes. “The health-care system has to be addressed. We are losing doctors.” “I believe in public tenders,” Glen Campbell said. Three important issues are “roads, recreation and rates afford-

Candidates in Horton Township just before the start of the Sept. 29 all-candidates forum. Mercury photo by Peter Clark able in the area we live in.” Campbell said he will listen to what the people have to say. Ray Cunningham said council has to “look after the bottom line. We have to attract small- and medium-sized businesses. The new Toyota building is a great thing for taxes,” he adds. Tony Dorzek said money for roads is a priority, as well as doctor recruitment. “We can work on the answer together,” he added. Dorzek finds the current taxes in Horton reasonable. Doctor recruitment, fundraising, a concrete pad for the rink, septage, commercial development, and paying down the debt at a reasonable rate are important priorities for Bob Kingsbury, the lone incumbent running for this year’s council. “I will provide effective representation on all issues, whether they be compatible or controversial,” Kingsbury added. Roads, future development and future vision are in the sights of Jamey Larone. “I listen to what people say. Council has to be more accountable to the ratepayers,” he said. Larone would like to see an open forum at council meetings, perhaps once a month. Theresa Lonergan believes in fiscal accountability, and life-long learning. “I will learn more about the concerns, issues and management relating to all aspects of council. Recreation is not my

only focus,” she said. “There should be a public question period at council meetings, without the need to pre-book,” Lonergan added. “We should spend very carefully, spend on needs, not wants,” Sheri Sexton said. Her top issues include roads, septage, and the rink generating money for the township. “People should gather together on projects, volunteer time, work together, get to know each other,” Sexton added. “Concerns I see, from going door-todoor, is the level of taxes for the services we are getting,” Richard Walker observed. Garbage, snow removal and road repair were expressed for examples. “We have to hold the line on taxes.” Margaret Whyte has previous municipal experience with Arnprior council in the 1990s. She said roads and recreation are among things a growing community needs to improve. “We need to maintain a collaborative, accountable and fiscally and socially responsible council team,” Whyte said. Greg Zavitske looks to promote and develop growth in recreation, business, and local doctor recruitment, and provide residents with fair taxation. “Horton should be a proud place to grow up, live, work and retire in,” Zavitske added. SCHOOL BOARD Cell phones and staggered bells are two issues which have enticed Bruce McIntyre to enter the race for the Catholic school board. “(Ontario Premier Dalton) McGuinty is calling for cell phones in the classroom. Kids can’t afford backpacks. Cell phones in the classroom is ludicrous,” McIntyre stressed. “And staggered bells. Every parent I’ve spoken to doesn’t want staggered bells.” Anne Smith has a great passion for education. “The use of cell phones in the classroom is as a teaching tool,” she said. “We are living in the 21st century. We use any technology to keep students in school.” Phase two of staggered bells has saved the board a million dollars, Smith added. The municipal election takes place Monday, Oct. 25.

Revoke amalgamation: reeve candidate JOHN CARTER john.carter@metroland.com

The amalgamation that merged Bagot and Blythfield, Brougham, and Griffith and Madawatchan into one township should be dissolved, says JR Easton, one of three candidates for reeve of Greater Madawaska. “It should never have been allowed to happen,” he says. “Put the townships back (the way they were).” Easton, who served as reeve of Bagot and Blythfield in the early 1990s, has been a garbage contractor in the township for the past 30 years. He suggests tub-grinding household garbage would have increased the life of the Black Donald landfill for several years, saving residents trips to the other sites. While expressing appreciation for the efforts of the public works manager to address his concerns, he says the new transfer stations need areas for garbage haulers like himself and others with large loads to dump in a way other than dropping off

JR Easton loads by hand. Easton says he receives many calls from people upset with the way the township is being run. He agrees with concerns expressed by the cottage associa-

tions about council not having a workable noise bylaw in place. The track has been operating for a number of summers, so a bylaw is long overdue, he says. All councillors should share in the responsibility of the mishandling of the track issues, he adds, claiming council has received “bad advice” from its legal counsel. Easton says more township road maintenance jobs need to be put out to tender. “Our employees are not road builders,” he says. More road resurfacing and brushing is needed, especially in Ward 2, he says, adding the reconstruction job on Pucker Street was “great,” but the shoulders are poor. He questions whether Ward 3 is receiving its fair share of road maintenance, maintaining a full-time office is needed in that area. He says placing a helicopter pad at the outskirts of the cemetery in Calabogie is “totally unacceptable” and a seniors housing complex should be located at Barnet Park.

Candidate wants to ‘give back to the people’ JOHN CARTER

john.carter@metroland.com

Michael McGarry, who is running for the Greater Madawaska councillor position for Brougham against Bruno Kierszak, was raised by his uncle and aunt in the ward in the Mt. St Patrick area. He went to school in Mt. St. Patrick and Eganville and then apprenticed as a plumber and pipe fitter in Renfrew and Ottawa. He worked in the trades for 35 years, mostly in Ottawa and the Valley but did work across Canada for some time. “Although I spent time away from the mountain, I always remained tied to my roots in Brougham Township,” he says. He helped with the plumbing when the DACA Centre was built and was involved in minor hockey in Renfrew. McGarry spent eight years on the executive board for Local 71 of the Plumbing and Pipefitters union in Ottawa. As a member of that team, he looked after the interests of the members and negotiated contracts for the union. He was an active director for

Mike McGarry the Conservative party in Renfrew County. “This opened many doors in government, which I feel will help me if I am elected to council,” he says. He says he is running “as a way to give back to the people who are always there to help and show kindness when it is needed.” He says he wants to be the voice for the people in the ward,

“making sure your concerns are heard and understood.” McGarry says his priorities are: • high-speed Internet for everyone in Greater Madawaska; • cellular service to the areas of the township that do not have it; • maintain and improve roads in the township; • provide better communication to the people of my ward; • assist people with land owner protection; • keep taxes under control with good decision-making; • push to have the county replace the bridge at Ferguson Lake; • tear down eyesores in the township such as the old store in Dacre at the corner of the Flat Road and Hwy. 132; • Do everything in my power to reopen the waste site at Black Donald. “I admit that I do not have all the answers, but I guarantee you that I will be there to look after your interests,” he says. “I will use all my energy, experience and all of the contacts I have developed to get the job done.”

CLARIFICATION Ward 2 (Brougham) candidate Bruno Kierczak has asked comments about road maintenance made in his profile in last week’s Renfrew Mercury be clarified. While agreeing seasonal taxpay-

ers deserve more for the taxes they pay, it would be impossible for Greater Madawaska to commit to servicing all the private roads in the township because there are too many to be afford-

able, he says. He notes it’s already a major challenge for the township to look after its own about 200 kilometres of paved and 300 of unpaved roads, let alone the many more private roads.

Donna Marie Kennedy, who is running for a councillor position in Greater Madawaska’s Ward 1 (Calabogie area), says communication and consultation with ratepayers are the main planks in her election platform. The retired teacher and former president of the Ontario English Catholic Teachers Association promises to “do my homework� before making any decisions. Guiding the 35,000-member teachers organization for four years gave her Donna Marie Kennedy valuable experience in consultation, representing a wide variety of constituents and working well with others, she says. Candidates should be careful when making promises, she says, noting if they can’t get other councillors to agree with their ideas, nothing will get done. “Co-operation and good-will are necessary if council is to function efficiently,� she says. Kennedy also says councillors should not fight old battles but move on once decisions are made and “look to the future not the past.� Implementing the strategic plan created in 2006 would be a good start, she adds.

One election at a time STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com

Bonnechere Valley Mayor Zig Mintha is the first county councillor to express interest in being the next warden of Renfrew County. He put his name forward at the very end of county council’s monthly meeting last Thursday (Sept. 30). The current warden, Don Rathwell, indicated he would support Mintha’s candidacy. First, however, Mintha has to win the three-person race in his own municipality that includes Kip Smith and Jennifer Murphy. “I have to win the election. If I’m successful my name will stand (as a candidate) for warden,� said Mintha, 68, of Eganville. “It’s not over yet. The election is not over until it’s over,� he said of the municipal race for head of council that he has won three times. He was elected Eganville reeve in 1998, but lost the race against Arlene Felhaber of the former Sebastopol Township in 2000. Mintha came back in 2003 to win against councillor Gerry Bimm, then was acclaimed in 2006. Born in Barry’s Bay, he and Shirley are the parents of two adult-age children. “I’ve got the experience. That’s one of the reasons I’m running,� said Mintha. “I feel I can give something to the County of Renfrew,� he said. As a county councillor, Mintha says he likes “being part of the decision-making process,

and I hope I can add to that process.� As in the last election, Mintha estimates he has about 200 Elect Mintha signs distributed around the township. Mintha is chairman of the county’s operations committee, and is a past chairman of the finance and administration committee. However, Mintha cautioned against people jumping to the conclusion that he’s assuming he’s going to be re-elected. “I don’t want people to think I’m cocky,� he said. “I’m just saying if circumstances develop that I am elected I’m going to run for warden.� The municipal election takes place Oct. 25. If Mintha is not re-elected mayor of Bonnechere Valley, Rathwell indicated he would reconsider running for a third straight term as warden. Rathwell is running for the position of reeve in Whitewater Region Township. NOMINATION DEADLINE The deadline for nominations as warden is 14 days prior to the county’s inaugural meeting. That meeting is scheduled for Dec. 14, but may change to Dec. 21 because the county would like to have all of the county’s newly-elected officials sworn in at their respective municipalities, says executive assistant Rose Gruntz. At this point, no county councillor has filed nomination papers for warden. The new municipal term begins Dec. 1, with most elected officials sworn in within that first week.

ELECTION MPP wants choice

More jobs, seniors housing needed: Johnston JOHN CARTER john.carter@metroland.com

Although new to politics, Vincent Johnston is not new to the Greater Madawaska. Johnston, one of five candidates for two Ward 1 (Calabogie area) councillor positions, has lived in the Hurd’s Lake area of the township with his wife, Paula, for more than 20 years. Although he was born and raised in Renfrew, his family’s roots in Greater Madawaska run back to the mid-1800s in the Calabogie, Black Donald, Griffith and Madawaska areas. Johnston says he would work to give the township “the services it needs to progress at a steady and consistent rate.” He says council and ratepayers must work together to tackle issues such as seniors housing and youth recreation, and gener-

ate more jobs by attracting entrepreneurs and developers. Council should continue to support a seniors housing project that is close to becoming a reality, he says. “Keeping our seniors here in a community they love and have helped build is a priority.” He points out the area’s youth are the township’s future leaders, businessmen, and church and service organization members. ‘They deserve proper educational and recreational facilities as well as employment opportunities within our own community.” An avid outdoorsman, Johnston says council must also continue to support the tourism industry in promoting Calabogie and the surrounding area as a place to come to relax, unwind and have fun.

Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MPP John Yakabuski introduced an Opposition Day motion Sept. 28, calling on the McGuinty government to suspend the smart meter time-of-use program until billing problems are fixed and Ontario families are given the option of whether to participate. An Oct. 1 news release said Yakabuski’s motion was introduced after 21 interested parties said the rush to make time-of-use billing mandatory by June 2011 does not give them adequate time to address issues. See HYDRO, Page 25

Council must also work to connect all areas of the township, however remote, to the rest of the world through high-speed Internet, he adds. He also supports making municipal government more transparent and building a stronger relationship with groups such as the Calabogie and Area Business Association, Calabogie Seniors, Calabogie Lions Club and the cottage associations. “Having owned and operated a successful business, Renfrew Auto Sales and Service, for 20 years has given me valuable experience in planning, financing and communicating,” he says. “In 2009 I sold the business and now have the time and the commitment needed in my role as councillor in Ward 1. I am energetic, have a strong work ethic and have the ability to work well within a team environment.”

Wedding dress stashed in stroller The Renfrew detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police responded to 171 calls for service during the past week. THEFT • A dress was stolen from Brides and Blooms store in Renfrew on Sept. 29 about 10:30 a.m. The suspect was followed from the store and police were notified. The stolen dress was recovered from a stroller, and the suspect was arrested. A 27-yearold Renfrew woman was charged with theft under $5,000. She was released on a promise to appear in court in Renfrew Nov 24. Constable Paul Babin investigated. • A solar power system and deep cycle battery were stolen from a cottage in Horton Township. The items were stored outside and no break in to the cottage occurred. The property is situated on Catherine Lane and the theft took place between Sept. 6 and 26. Const. Kevin Rebertz is investigating. • A wallet was stolen from a taxi on Sept. 28 in Renfrew. The driver’s wallet was stolen during the daytime. Const. Marc Bennett is investigating. • Several unlocked vehicles were entered and valuables stolen overnight on Sept. 29. The thefts occurred on Division Street and nearby. Owners are reminded to remove valuables from their vehicles and to lock vehicles any time you are not in it. These crimes are usually a crime of opportunity where the thief is looking for unlocked vehicles to search. Don’t be a victim – lock it or lose it. BREAK, ENTER AND THEFT • On Saturday, Oct. 2 at about 1 a.m. the glass door at Robbins Confectionery on River Road in Braeside was broken. Once inside, the thieves stole cigarettes and sunglasses. Two males were observed running away from the store. Const. Joe Roach is investigating. • A residence on Cameron Avenue in Renfrew was broken into between 5 to 11 p.m. Oct 2. A window pane on a side door was broken to allow entry into the home.

A quantity of DVD movies were stolen. Const. Babin is investigating. • A home currently under construction was entered and had several items stolen. A four-wheeler, generator and weed-eater were among the items stolen. The home is situated on Kathleen Road in the Township of Greater Madawaska, and the break-in was discovered Sept. 30. Const. Jason Findley is investigating. BREACH OF BAIL CONDITIONS • On Sept. 27 Const. Jamie Prince attended Lanark Road in Greater Madawaska Township to investigate damage done to a vehicle. While investigating the matter, the officer observed one male to be under the influence of alcohol. Further investigation revealed the male was on a recognizance of bail with a condition that he abstain absolutely from the consumption of alcohol. A 22-year-old Nepean man was charged with breach of recognizance and will appear in court in Renfrew Oct. 27. TRESPASSING • Const. Rick Shikatani is investigating after garbage was dumped on private property on Patterson Road in the Township of Admaston-Bromley. The garbage was located Sept. 27 and could have been dumped there some time over the summer months.

A MESSAGE TO THE RESIDENTS OF HORTON As a candidate for Mayor of your Municipality, and after speaking with many of you, I feel it is necessary to publish these facts to help with your decision for your next Council. The financing of our debt is of concern to a lot of residents and I hope to help clear up a lot of misconceptions with these facts and figures Garden of Eden Road Estimated cost of construction is $1,500,000.00 Method of repayment: 1/3 from Federal Government 1/3 from Provincial Government $365,000.00 to be financed by the Township over 5 years, however our Federal Government gas tax rebate of $86,220.00 covers the repayment and interest, therefore, leaving us as taxpayers with 1 of our major roads reconstructed with little or no tax dollars invested. Municipal Office/Council Chambers Cost of construction $203,000.00 Actually borrowed $173,334.00 Method of repayment: financed solely by the Township, over 10 years with a monthly payment of $1,896.00 Change Room Cost of construction $150,000.00 Actually borrowed $75,761.00 Method of repayment: financed solely by the Township, over 10 years with a monthly payment of $745.00 Roof Cover

DOMESTIC DISPUTES

Cost of construction $330,000.00 Method of repayment: 1/3 from Federal Government 1/3 from Provincial Government $100,000.00 financed by the Township, over 10 years with a monthly payment of $1,099.00

• The Renfrew OPP detachment investigated six domestic disputes during the past week. One male was charged with three counts of failing to comply with a recognizance, and one female was charged with assault, mischief and being unlawfully in a dwelling.

Our recreation fundraising committee, led by Valerie Miller, has taken on the challenge of raising $15,000.00 per year to cover most of the cost of the construction of the rink facility, and in the last 10 months, along with the Castleford Fishing Derby, has raised over $14,000.00. If this goal is realized and $150,000.00 is fund raised over 10 years, our total investment, as ratepayers, will be under $50,000.00 or approximately $5,000.00 per year for both, the change room AND roof cover.

MISCHIEF • Several incidents of mischief were investigated during the past week, including: damage to a vehicle in Griffith, damage to a sign at Renfrew Dairy Queen, and damage to sponsor signs and a booth at the Renfrew agricultural grounds.

Therefore, if we take Horton’s repayment on our debt for the first 5 years, which is $125,804.00 Less gas tax rebate $86,220.00 Less fundraising $15,000.00 $24,584.00 is left to pay back, out of the tax base, per year, for the first 5 years

Saving lives during Operation Impact Oct. 8 to 11 will mark Operation Impact, a national campaign to make Canada’s roads the safest in the world. This special weekend is a police initiative designed to remind people that an essential part of the enforcement job is to save lives and reduce injuries on our roadways. Educating the public in safe driving practices is a priority. The focus will be on behaviours that put drivers, passengers and other road users most at risk: impaired driving, seat belt use, and all aspects related to aggressive driving. All enforcement agencies across

7

the country have been invited to participate. “Safer streets and highways can be achieved through a collaborative approach involving everyone,” says Colin Slight, detachment commander of the Renfrew OPP. “Alcohol related collisions are preventable collisions and we need to work together towards meeting our goal of safer communities.” This initiative has been strategically chosen, as it is a significant long weekend. More people are travelling and traffic crashes are more frequent. Here in the Renfrew

area, there have been 13 deaths and 327 serious injuries over the last three years related to vehicle collisions. These are just numbers but they represent moms, dads, sisters, brothers, loved ones, coworkers, neighbours. It is unacceptable. That is why, in support of Operation Impact, the OPP is committed to Operation Impact. Operation Impact is sponsored by the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police (CACP) and Transport Canada and is part of Road Safety Vision 2010, which has a goal of making Canada’s roads the safest in the world.

The remaining 5 years, we will have a payment of $44,878.00 Less fundraising $15,000.00 $29,878.00 is left to pay back, out of the tax base, per year for the remainder Our total asset increase value is

$2,183,000.00

Our reserve funds as of December 31, 2009 is $724,435.00 Our septage pilot project got started after the Government of Ontario came out with a policy statement, that ALL septic tank waste must be treated and after hearing and reading about methods of treatment and the $40,000 - $60,000 a year price tag attached to them, Horton council convinced MOE to fund a pilot project between ourselves and Bonnechere Valley Township. Horton received $85,000.00 from MOE and $10,000.00 from the Renfrew County Futures Development Corporation. Our share was to be $25,000.00. However, construction along the way, and changes by the Ministry has driven the cost up to $200,000.00. Our committee has already spoken to MOE and County officials about more funding for this project, that will benefit rural Ontarians, and I can assure you, after positive results, there will be major pressure put on MOE for funding. The end result, however, is Horton now has infrastructure in place, when MOE does ban spreading, for a fraction of the cost.

ext Wednesday night is a big night on the Renfrew political calendar. Once again the Renfrew and Area University Women’s Club will step up to the plate to ensure local voters know their candidates. A cynic might say it doesn’t matter; that most people have already made up their minds long before they walked into recreation centre auditorium. We disagree. Such nights remain an important part of our democratic process; the chance to see beyond the spit and polish of a groomed campaign. We wish all the candidates well as they present themselves to their potential new employers. Editor’s Election Note: It has been brought to our attention that some candidates have reproduced copyrighted material from our paper in their campaign literature without our consent. This should not be perceived as any kind of endorsement by The Renfrew Mercury.

To the editor: I would like to make a plea to the people who think it is funny to smash their beer bottles on the sidewalk on their way home from wherever they are partying (Raglan Street in particular). I do commend them for walking home and not driving. But, for those of us who walk our dogs on Saturday and Sunday mornings, it is treacherous. The dogs are on top of the broken glass before it’s seen.

Fortunately, my dogs haven’t cut their feet yet, but I’m sure someone else’s dog has. So, please think ahead the next time you’re walking home (or driving and throwing bottles out the window) and if you really must make your mark, just throw the bottles on the grass so they don’t break and we’ll just pick them up and get our 10 cents at the beer store. I thank you and the dogs thank you. Melanie Stafford Renfrew

Auto industry caters to speed freaks, and the carnage continues SPEED FREAKS ARE JUST THAT For many people, Thanksgiving weekend brings memories of happy times. But for some, it’s a cruel, painful time. Long weekends are notorious for highway fatalities, a reality I’m sure is never far from the thoughts of OPP officers working the holiday weekend. Operation Impact, a national campaign to make Canada’s roads the safest in the world, kicks off tomorrow. This special weekend is a police initiative designed to save lives and reduce injuries on our roadways. The Renfrew OPP report that there have been 13 deaths and 327 serious injuries over the last three years related to vehicle collisions. Many, I would venture, are somehow related to speed. Campaigns such as Operation Impact play an important role from a public awareness perspective, but we need more. Anyone can step into their vehicle and check out the

LUCY HASS MISCELLANY speedometer to see one part of the problem. Speed is accepted, and encouraged, by the very design of vehicles. For example, my truck theoretically will speed up to 180 km/hr. The question is, why? Who decided that the very potential of such madness is a good thing? There is a lot of talk about addressing new ‘green’ automotive industry, but the next piece of paper that should be pushed by any level of government is legislation that reduces the speed capability at the source.

CO-OP CONTRIBUTION The Renfrew Mercury welcomes St. Joseph’s High School co-op student Rebekah Borshevsky who will be with us mornings until the new year.

Second ice pad committee committed to joint project at Ma-Te-Way Park To the editor: The mayor, council, recreation committee and staff are to be commended on the quality of the Recreation Master Plan Report which was commissioned on behalf of the residents of the Town of Renfrew. This document has provided ratepayers with an unbiased perspective about what recreational services residents want, what they actually need and what they can afford. It is the position of the Second Ice Pad Committee that the first major capital project be the completion of the Ma-TeWay Development Plan which town leaders and visionaries presented over three decades ago. Upon completion, this plan called for the construction of a full-service recreational complex with a pool and two ice pads. Our group is concerned that this project will remain on the shelf unless we come together as a community to build the pool and second ice pad. If history teaches us anything it is that money and public support are the major limiting factors in this type of endeavour. Building the projects concurrently enables us to generate more money (federal,

provincial, municipal) and increase community support. A joint project makes responsible use of hard earned tax dollars as construction costs are reduced, with infrastructure, land and some staffing already in place at Ma-Te-Way. The Master Plan indicates that a second ice pad will offset future operating deficits of a pool and the existing pad. Higher interest rates and inflation would increase capital costs if we were to build the pool now and the second pad ‘down the road.’ When the pool was eliminated from the development over twenty years ago there was a feeling in some circles that it could be built at a later date yet here we are still literally travelling ‘down the road’ to Arnprior to swim. Will history repeat itself if the projects are split? The community is more likely to support a joint project which serves the recreation needs of people across all demographics. A well-appointed pool design ensures that all residents, young and old, able bodied and with physical restrictions,

can swim in a comfortable and safe environment. A second ice pad would provide more access to public skating and recreational leagues. Local business would benefit from the financial spin off of running larger scale tournaments which bring upwards of 500 people into town for a weekend. The walking track installed around the rink provides an affordable and comfortable year round space for residents to exercise. A project of this magnitude can be accomplished when the community is unit-

ed under a collective goal. The town has a proven record of securing grants and debenturing funds to facilitate growth. Nine of 13 people running for leadership positions in the upcoming elections are on record as supporting a joint project. The time to build our future is now. We look forward to working with other community groups to help build a pool and second ice pad in a timely and fiscally responsible fashion. Scott Buffam President Second Ice Pad Committee

Consider the importance of transfer stations To the editor: As to the coming Greater Madawaska Township election, that is coming up on Oct. 25, I am very concerned. Do we want a candidate elected that is not in favour of the wonderful results that the transfer stations are creating, to help with saving the earth. My husband and I have two sons that are maintaining, teaching and prepping all the people when they visit the transfer stations. We have gone up to the stations and have heard what the people want and say. They are so pleased with the organization of having all the signs there, directing them as to what to do with their waste and their recycling items.

Obviously some of the candidates have not done their homework regarding recycling and waste diversion. People, when you have time, go visit the stations, and see how well managed they are by the attendants. The guys are always thinking of better ways to recycle; like clear bags. These are a must! Do you want a candidate elected who does not believe in saving the earth, by having our great transfer stations done away with? Give this some thought before you vote.

ELECTION

Improve co-operation, attract growth, says McNab-Braeside mayoral candidate JOHN CARTER john.carter@metroalnd.com

After serving 27 years on the Renfrew County public school board and McNab-Braeside council, Elmer Raycroft wants to finish his career in local politics as mayor of the township. “I think most people want to see some change (on council), he said. “I’d like to see little stronger leadership and council working together better.” He said he is confident he could work well with any of the candidates running for council. Raycroft, who was born and raised in McNab-Braeside, served on the school board for 17 years, including two as chairman and two as vice-chairman, before being elected a township councillor for six years. He has been deputy mayor for the last term, chairing the planning and fire committees, and is now challenging incumbent Mary Campbell for the top job. The school board and council experience, along with his time spent in the car business and on his acreage in the township raising four children, provides the background to allow him to “understand the issues, and deal

with them in a fair and timely manner,” he said. He pledged to represent all ratepayers fairly, and not favour any specific groups. “I’m not anti-anyone. I’ll work with any ratepayer any time,” he said. “But I don’t represent just one group ... I represent the entire township.” For instance, when it comes to the Braeside quarry asphalt plant proposal, council has to gather the facts and make a decision after consultation and open and balanced discussions with all parties, he said. The township has done due diligence by arranging peer reviews of the applicant’s studies, he added. He noted that while the environment must be protected, the township also has to respect property rights. Raycroft said continuing with improvements at the landfill and reinstatement of the full roads budget after this year’s cuts should be priorities for the next council. “We must replace and maintain our equipment for the safety of our community.” He said he will continue to lobby for a traffic light or some other solution to improve safety

Elmer Raycroft at the Calabogie Road-Hwy. 17 intersection. Raycroft said he is unabashedly “pro-development” and feels the township should take advantage of the once-in-a-lifetime growth opportunities provided by the four-laning of Hwy. 17. “Council needs to be ready ... we need to be proactive,” he said, suggesting the maximum number of severances allowed on a property be upped from three to four. Subdivisions such as Madison Heights and Mansfield Meadows have been a big boost to the township, he added.

McNab-Braeside deputy-reeve candidate Christine Blimkie (Sauve) has called the township home all her life and is ready to sit down at the council table to represent the community she loves so much.

“We need to continue to make developments like that feel welcome,” he said. “I believe we can have both development and preservation of our rural identity. We have plenty of waste land where we can develop (residential projects).” Encouraging growth to increase the tax base is necessary to keep taxes in line, he said, noting the township is facing major cost increases in everything from fuel to fire trucks. Raycroft said working closely with the Renfrew County and neighbours, particularly Arnprior, can help accommodate growth and keep costs down. The township is benefitting from joint ventures with the town and “I hope the new councils will be open to them being expanded,” he said, citing recycling and septage as two areas that can benefit from working co-operatively. He suggested the township needs to improve its relations with county council, maintaining the township has “lost much of its impact” in that arena. “With my experience on county boards, I will strive to work cooperatively with county council to ensure that we receive fair

Blimkie is the daughter of Ben and Mona Sauve, who operated Ben’s TV in Arnprior for years. “I have lived on the same lot and concession all my life, and my mom and dad still live across the road,” says Blimkie. “I love our setting – the atmosphere here.

Under the provincial legislation, the municipality must test the drinking water for lead at 40 private residences, 4 non-private residences, between June 15, 2010 and October 15, 2010.

• Tests would be performed at older residences suspected of having lead pipes or pipes with lead solder. • Homes built before the mid-1950s could have lead pipes. • Lead solder was used to join copper pipes and was phased out in the late 1980s; any new construction done after those years should not be affected by lead in the piping system.

Since the Town must access homes to test for the presence of lead, we are looking for volunteers to allow the Town of Renfrew staff access to their homes to collect samples. There will be NO charge to the resident for the testing of the lead sample.

Each sample will total three litres in each location and the regulations obligate the town to advise tenants of the test results as soon as they are available.

Family is definitely a focus for the 23-year Nortel employee. She and husband Jeff have two university student daughters, Julie and Melanie. See BLIMKIE, Page 22

At Chartwell we offer residents a mix of activities from musical presentations to card tournaments, as well as exercise classes for those looking for something a little more active.

Once again, the Town of Renfrew will be conducting drinking water sampling and testing for lead to comply with Ontario Regulations. The town is seeking volunteer test sites in single family homes, multi-unit buildings, commercial properties, and industrial properties.

The Town will require permission of the property owner to take the samples. If you wish to be added to the list of potential test sites please contact the Development and Works Department, Municipal Garage, Darl Gaudette at 613-432-4147.

and proper distribution of the funds,” he said. Council also needs to “reconnect” with provincial ministries, so they will not shy away from coming to the table to discuss matters of common interest and allow both sides to come to a better understanding of each other’s roles, Raycroft said. Council has a role in ensuring there is proper health care available for its residents, he said, noting he has served for several years on the local doctor recruitment committee. He pledged to work toward improve nursing and home care services in the township. Raycroft said council members need to work more co-operatively with each other and continue to maintain harmony with the township’s “dedicated staff ” and “outstanding” fire department. He said he is running a positive campaign. “I want people to know what I’m for, not what I’m against. I don’t want to criticize anyone. I feel I’ve represented the ratepayers for 27 years in a honest and fair manner. “As mayor I would continue to serve with experience, integrity and commitment.”

TAX BURDEN Campbell says the tax burden can be alleviated by increasing the township’s tax base. “We need to work with Arnprior and Renfrew to bring long-term, good-paying jobs to our area,” he says. He says the local governments have to get serious about lobbying the federal and provincial governments to support economic development in the area and stop the drain of good-paying jobs. Some of the government jobs in Ottawa should be moved up the Valley, he suggests, noting that would help alleviate the commuter problems. “It’s the government that seems to be doing all the hiring,” he says. “Some of the people can even work out of their homes.” More jobs will “increase our tax base and give some stability to this area which we are now lacking,” he says. Campbell argues increasing the tax base and keeping tax increases in check is so important because many ratepayers, particularly senior citizens, are having a tough time staying afloat financially.

STEWART’S AUCTIONS (613) 646-7649

FOR A POSITIVE CHANGE IN LEADERSHIP Robert Campbell Rising assessments and taxes are making it almost impossible for most people to buy homes in Toronto and Montreal. If taxes aren’t reined in, some seniors, and younger people too, may not be able to afford to buy or stay in their homes in this area, he says. He says council should encourage a variety of seniors housing options. Residential growth should be supported, but only if it doesn’t pose a tax burden on residents already in the township, he adds. Rising taxes are also deterring local business, he adds, noting, as an example, taxes at Valley Roof Truss in Braeside have risen from $800 in 1993 to $3,512 in 2010, or more than 400 per cent. Campbell says council also needs to do more to help and promote local businesses.

LOCAL TRADES The township should use local trades and businesses whenever possible, he says. “What kind of an example do we set for our constituents when we use outside sources for work that our local people can do handily and be price competitive,” he adds. “You have to support those who are paying the taxes here.” He is concerned the final decision on allowing a permanent asphalt plant at the Braeside Quarry is taking so long. “I’d be against it if I have to smell it,” he says, noting the trend toward recycling asphalt may mean it is not needed. Campbell also says council should do more to recognize volunteers. They need a lot more recognition for what they do, especially volunteer firefighters, he says. Campbell says he has learned a lot of plain common sense from people he has worked with and listened to over the years. “I’d like to bring that to council.”

Robert Campbell says township spending in McNab-Braeside should be curbed to keep property taxes reasonable. The beef farmer and former Gillies Lumber foreman is hoping it will be third time lucky. He has run twice unsuccessfully for McNab-Braeside council, but not in the last two elections. His family has been farming in the Braeside area for six generations and he worked 27 years for Gillies before it closed in 1992. “I feel taxes are just too high,” he says. “We need to look carefully at where our tax dollars are being spent … I think our spending is sometimes just plain reckless.” Campbell, who is a distant cousin of mayor candidate Mary Campbell, pledges to not vote for any tax increases “unless it is proven that we cannot survive without it.” The township is spending and hiring “like there is no recession,” he says. He questions the need for the recent hiring of a public works director. It “doesn’t add up” that the township is paying for a fulltime property manager, yet only a part-time mayor, he says. He says the township has undertaken some major projects in the last term, so should now ease off and concentrate on “maintaining what we’ve got.” Council needs to allow for a lot more debate and input from taxpayers before approving any increases, he adds.

WHOLE NEW WORLD “It really struck a chord,” says Hutchison, who learned that not living your purpose and following your dreams can affect your physical health. Hutchison had always wanted to be a nurse and as usual she went after her goal with gusto at the age of 17. She passed all the entrance tests and was disappointed to learn that slipped discs in her back disqualified her to train as a nurse. She did work looking after people, as a nanny and in a retirement home, but eventually wound up using her skill with numbers to earn a living. She trained first in reflexology and has gone on to learn a number of practices, including massage therapy, hypnotherapy and CranioSacral therapy. Hutchison worked in both finances and healing for awhile, until the pace got to be too much. So, leaving behind a booming practice in Calgary, she and husband James headed to Ontario and settled in Burnstown, near some of his family members. “We moved here for a change of pace,” says Hutchison. She’s adjusted her schedule to a manageable pace, working two days in Ottawa and two at her

Moira Hutchinson Burnstown home. Her stint as chair of the McNab-Braeside Business Association whet her appetite for politics, says Hutchison. “I’ve got a real love of the corporate part of helping people run their business better and understanding their own commerce.” Her work with the business association included creating a website with a listing of the township’s businesses and production of a brochure with the same information. She has also been involved with the Calabogie and Area Business Association and says her experience with the association joined with her own business knowledge gives her a unique perspective on some of the challenges rural businesses face. Hutchison says she’s not the type of person to sit around and complain when there’s a problem. “If I see something that needs to be done I will go and do it,” she says. Having lived all over, Hutchison says she loves Burnstown and McNab-Braeside Township. “Of all the moves I’ve made I’d have to say I felt accepted the quickest here. I actually got really connected with the people here in Burnstown. “I’ve got a real desire to put places like this on the map,” she says. Should she be successful in her council bid, Hutchison says health care and wellness will continue to be a big factor in her outlook. Health awareness and alternatives, as well as community events that promote wellness, are key, she says. As far as campaigning, since she’s new to the game, she’s starting from scratch. Making signs and pamphlets and networking with possible constituents are among the tasks at hand.

McNab Township councillor candidate Moira Hutchison says her Type-A personality and hardworking nature are a great fit for the role. Hutchison, who has lived in Burnstown for three years, was born in Toronto and lived in many places, including a number of her childhood years spent in Scotland, which left her with a brogue that is appreciated in a township where Scottish roots run deep. The owner of Hutchison Healing Touch, she moved from Calgary, where she worked in the corporate world as an office manager and financial controller. Her career took a very different turn after she became ill in 1998 with adult mono that never really went away, eventually suffering from fibromyalgia/chronic fatigue. Doctors attempted to help, offering different medications that never did the trick. The pills and support groups offered by physicians didn’t help. Her research into non-traditional practices and wholistic health opened up a whole new world.

Open-door policy a must, says M-B canddiate for deputy-mayor SHERRY HAAIMA shaaima@msn.com

McNab-Braeside deputy mayoral candidate Andy Dunlop has spent four years at council and he’s not ready to leave yet. Dunlop says he hopes to see some projects through and continue to work for the good of the voters. He is running against Christine Blimkie (Sauve). “I’d like to finish what we started,” says Dunlop, who, with wife Betty and family, has lived in the area for 35 years. Now receiving treatment for a vascular ulcer on his ankle and other medical issues, Dunlop says the doctors have given him the green light to run again. He enjoys his community activities, which along with council duties includes membership in the Lions Club and Knights of Columbus, and being out and about means constituents have access to him. “It’s important they feel the door’s always open,” says Dunlop. He started in municipal politics four years ago

Andy Dunlop when he was elected councillor. Dunlop was involved in hockey, playing as a goaltender and seeing his children through minor hockey. He served as president of minor hockey for three years, and touts the importance of community involvement, fun and physical activity for all ages. Born in Ottawa, he started out in the armed forces and worked in real estate before the market fell in 1974. He came to Arnprior and worked for the town as community co-ordinator, then for the Ontario Housing Corporation, Boeing and Beloit, and owned an Arnprior sports business.

The Dunlops have faced Arnprior and McNabtheir share of adversity Braeside, too, must work – losing son Drew, 28, to cancer and son Chris in a 2008 car accident. The Dunlop memorial golf tournament, which just celebrated its 10th year, keeps their sons’ memories alive and helps the community they care so deeply about. Proceeds support local kids sports. And the family continues to be a focus, as daughter Leah and her husband welcomed their first child, Alexia, almost a year ago. While council certainly faced major hurdles, positive moves were made over the past four years, says Dunlop, including providing a public question period during council. “I thought that was a super idea. We’re trying to be as co-operative as we can.” Relationships among councillors, municipalities and various levels of government are key. He stresses the need for personal issues to be kept off the council table and for members to work together for the good of the whole township.

Fundraiser Oct. 17 for Lyme disease patient Christine Boudreau STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com

It took several visits with the medical establishment, but eventually Christine Boudreau learned why she had a bull’s-eye rash, flu-like symptoms and, later, dizziness, constant tremors and swollen knees. At age 47, she hasn’t worked in her specialty as a sand-blast etcher for Yolkowski Monuments in Cobden since April. She has taken a leave of absence, but she’s bound and determined to return to her work and a more normal existence, after being diagnosed with Lyme disease Aug. 25, 2010. Many Lyme disease patients recover about 90 per cent of their neuro-muscular capabilities, but to be that successful she’ll have to undergo substantial treatments and travel, back and forth between Toronto and Pembroke, for about a year. She started undergoing treatments in late spring. As a contract worker with no steady income now and a husband who’s on a disability pension (following complications stemming from cancer treatment), the couple is finding financial times a little tougher. Hence, Elizabeth Frost of

Dacre and Mary Lalonde of Micksburgh are among family members organizing a fundraiser for the couple Oct. 17 at the DACA Centre (near Dacre). Boudreau is one of 16 children of Frank and Lillian Coulterman who moved from Farnham, Que., to Dacre when she was about six years old. She spent much of her childhood there before moving into Renfrew at age 16 to continue her education at St. Joseph’s Catholic High School. The Pembroke resident regularly visits Dacre, where several family members still live, including brother Kerry Coulterman. Her father is a resident of Bonnechere Manor in Renfrew. Boudreau says she never imagined being in her present condition before the age of 50. “I was so shy about it at first,� she says about the fundraiser. “But they (family members) just want to help.� A few sponsors have come forward, like Wheels of the Valley. They’re planning a classic-car show, possibly with 30 or more cars, during the 1-6 p.m. Sunday fundraiser at the DACA Centre. Meanwhile, Boudreau is undergoing antibiotic treatment to deal with co-infections caused by a tick bite likely inflicted

For the first time in her life, Christine Boudreau is getting about in a wheelchair, or managing short walks across the kitchen. Mercury photo by Steve Newman

around 2004. “The best way to describe how quickly I changed is with a simple picture of me standing on a 12-foot ladder helping to decorate this past Easter weekend to becoming disabled two weeks

later,� she writes in notes about her encounters with Lyme disease. Constant postural tremors in the torso and legs, unsteady gait and vertigo have caused her to take a leave of absence from Yolkowski Monuments after working at the Cobden company for 15 years. “I’m still able to speak well, so thank God it was caught before it got too far,� says Boudreau of her symptoms. Neurological symptoms include reversal of letters and numbers, and seeing red lettering upside down. Despite swollen knees and tremors, she can walk across the kitchen, but not much farther. And showers must be taken while sitting on a chair with a back (to control the tremors). “I can still walk,� she insists, “but it’s a crippled walk. I can’t walk far because the knees buckle and they swell up.� She knows a tick bite has caused her symptoms, but hopes they are mostly temporary. But now she’s forging forward. “I know I can reach out to others who have walked in my shoes, and I can reach out to the few dedicated doctors that specialize in the field of Lyme,� she explains.

“But even more importantly, I want to reach out to the people and ask that you stand with me as I bite back (against the disease).� Boudreau is working closely with two infectious disease specialists, one doctor in Atlantic Canada and another in Toronto. The Oct. 17 fundraiser will feature several entertainers and opportunities for donations, including raffles and a silent auction. For more details, call Elizabeth Frost at 613-649-2668 or Heather Coulterman at 1-613592-1710. “Our experience over the last five months, of seeing a drastic deterioration in her body, we basically saw someone vanishing in front of us and a real sense of helplessness,� said Coulterman. “As sad as we were to hear the diagnosis, we’re as relieved to know there was a treatment and possibilities for high recovery. “As we look forward, it’s not going to be an easy recovery. It is going to get worse before it gets better. “So we saw this as a family opportunity to do something for her, to lessen some of those stresses, with the help of friends and co-workers.� For more details about Lyme disease, visit www.canlyme.com

Merry-go-round or productive start toward reannexation? STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com

Dave and Warren La Rocque of George Jackson Toyota gathered with Horton and Renfrew officials Monday to discuss the potential unannexation of property in Renfrew’s northeast servicing area back to Horton Township. As required by legislation, that process can not be considered unless both municipalities agree to the move. The total lack of any favourable Renfrew councillor comments about annexing the La Rocques’ property back to Horton have some municipal officials wondering if the process is a waste of time, but the La Rocques seemed to think some progress was made. The land being talked about for reannexation belongs to the La Rocques, Irvin Jamieson and one other local resident. That same land was unannexed from Horton Township to Renfrew in 1970, despite protests by Horton Township, when the issue went before the Ontario Municipal Board. A stumbling block for the La Rocques is the $13,282 development charge per acre for its 30acre plot of land. Jamieson has similar concerns if he attempts to sell his residential land to someone looking to develop it commercially. The La Rocques, who have already begun construction to move their George Jackson Toyota dealership in Renfrew to Horton Township’s Garden of Eden Road, say they want to develop the property at Innovation Drive and O’Brien Road to an environmentally-friendly business venture. They would not be more specific. Monday’s public meeting was chaired by Renfrew clerk Kim Bulmer in the company of Horton CAO-clerk Mackie McLaren, other Renfrew staff, and council members from both Horton and Renfrew. The entire northeast servicing area encompasses 114 acres, including portions belonging to the Town of Renfrew and other owners other than Jamieson and the La Rocques. “We have a very serious matter on the table … and we don’t want to be wasting anyone’s time,” said Dave La Rocque early in Monday’s public meeting. The development charge, explained Renfrew public works director Mike Asselin, is needed to finance the $1.5 million con-

struction cost of water and sewer pipelines for the northeast servicing area. The first company to develop in that area would front-end the $1.5 million, then recoup portions of that investment from other companies developing land in the same area. The development charge, says the La Rocques, is so prohibitive that if the current bylaw development charge remains in place they will never develop the land. If that’s the case, they want their and Jamieson’s property annexed back to Horton. To facilitate that move, the La Rocques say they’d be willing to buy the adjacent 47-acre plot from the town. That way a rectangle of land could be annexed back to Horton in one neat block, says Larocque. “You are the elephant beside us, the mouse,” said Warren La Rocque. “We can’t go asking for help because we already did.” To which Asselin said, of discussions over the last two years, “We didn’t treat you unlike any other developer.” Dave La Rocque pointed out that this is not an ordinary economic time. “The (local) economy is not very healthy,” he said. “And we don’t see how this bylaw is going to help us in any matter or form … so we’re looking to go to Horton because we want to develop that property.” After some discussion, Renfrew Coun. Tom Anderson wondered if “what we’re doing here tonight is going around in circles … We’re obviously at a disagreement where we’re at (regarding annexation).” Reannexation, said Anderson, “may not be a route at all.” Coun. Dave Bennett, who chairs Horton’s planning committee, said Horton council feels it would be beneficial to see the property developed. “But, as it was said before, if Renfrew’s not willing to move forward, Horton feels it’s a dead issue.” Despite that reality, Dave La Rocque left the meeting feeling some progress was made. “We are here to develop and create jobs whether they’re in Horton or in Renfrew … but right now it’s not going to happen (in the northeast servicing area).” But he added: “I think there was good discussion ... I hope the town sees the light and if they can’t financially see themselves doing something (with the property), let’s go to Horton and create some jobs.”

70 years proud for the Lions

Monday to Wednesday Thursday & Friday Saturday

STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com

The Renfrew Lions Club’s long history of proudly supporting community causes continues. During its 70th anniversary charter night, Lions from across the district gathered at Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre Saturday to remember the local club’s history and to continue to celebrate community projects. The club presented cheques to the Bonnechere Manor’s new auditorium campaign and the Lions Foundation of Canada program, which supports guide dogs that facilitate the lives of Canadians with disabilities. Those on hand, in the audience of about 90 people, to praise the local Lions’ milestone included Renfrew Mayor Sandi Heins, Lions Club district governor Andy Etherington, guest speaker and past district governor Dave Voisey of the Cumberland Lions Club, and others from across the Ottawa Valley. Congratulatory notes were also read on behalf of MPP John Yakabuski and MP Cheryl Gallant. The MPP commended the club for its commitment to making the world a better place to be, while Gallant spoke to her party’s recognition of the Lions’ efforts and dedication over the years. “May this evening be marked by fond memories of the outstanding service you have been a part of providing to this community,” said Mayor Heins. She spoke of the 29 founding members who had a dream 70 years ago, to come together to serve their community. Despite ups and downs over the years, the Renfrew Lions Club has been a “constant in the Town of Renfrew” whose members have used their talent and commitment to make a difference, said Heins. “Each one of you have woven a special giving and caring, fun-loving part of yourselves into the fabric of this community. Your dreams and determination have built this club. You are to be admired for your spirit.” She said the town is also privileged to have the greatest Santa Claus Parade in the Ottawa Valley. How times do change, though. Guest speaker Voisey reminded the audience that 70 years ago, when the Renfrew Lions Club was founded, the average house cost $3,900, a car $850, a flashlight battery 10 cents and monthly rent $30. He also said the Renfrew club was sponsored new clubs that followed, in Pontiac, Douglas, Killaloe and Calabogie. Districtgovernors from its ranks, he added, have been Dr. Al Brown, Moodie Campbell and Doug Headrick, while first-vice district governor Joe Gauthier could rise to the

Reference was also made to Harry A. Newman, who in 1924 became the first Canadian president of Lions Club International. Newman also accepted Helen Keller’s challenge for Lions to become Knights of the Blind, as they became a driving force behind sight conservation. Headrick also noted, during the induction ceremony, that the Mercury reporter covering the event was Newman’s grandson. INDUCTION CEREMONY The evening also featured a unique mother-and-daughter induction ceremony for Sandy and Shannon Giffin of Admaston-Bromley. They were led into the room blindfolded while following visually-impaired Lion Keith McDonald and guide dog Murphy. The blindfolding was a philosophical way to remind the new inductees that “more members means more eyes to see the need and more hands to serve,” said district governor Etherington at the end of the ceremony. “It’s an honour and a privilege to be part of the community and to be able to help others in need,” said inductee Sandy Giffin. Later, the Renfrew Lions Club provided a $100 cheque to the Lions Foundation of Canada (as a token of thanks to the speaker) and a $5,000 cheque to the Bonnechere Manor new auditorium campaign, for half of its commitment to the project. The club’s July-August-September 50-50 draw was also conducted − Kelsey Ritz of Renfrew won $4,309.25.

AND TAKE NOTICE that any person or agency may appeal to the Ontario Municipal Board in respect of the By-law by filing with the Clerk of the Corporation of the Town of Renfrew not later than the 27th day of October, 2010 a notice of appeal setting out the objection to the By-law and the reasons in support of the objection. Only individuals, corporations and public bodies may appeal a zoning by-law to the Ontario Municipal Board. A notice of appeal may not be filed by an unincorporated association or group. However, a notice of appeal may be filed in the name of an individual who is a member of the association or the group on its behalf. No person or public body shall be added as a party to the hearing of the appeals unless, before the by-law was passed, the person or public body made oral submissions at a public meeting or written submissions to the council or, in the opinion of the Ontario Municipal Board, there are reasonable grounds to add the person or public body as a party. AND TAKE NOTICE that an appeal must set out the objection to the By-law, the reasons in support of the objection and be accompanied by the prescribed fee. The prescribed fee is $125.00 and must be made payable to the Minister of Finance. An explanation of the purpose and effect of the By-law, describing the lands to which the Bylaw applies. The complete By-law is available for inspection in my office during regular office hours.

EXPLANATORY NOTE This new zoning by-law repeals the zoning by-law of the former Town of Renfrew, and it implements the new Official Plan of the Town of Renfrew. The Council of a municipality may, under Section 34 of the Planning Act, pass a Zoning By-law to govern the use of land. The effect of By-law Number 46-2010 is to regulate the use of land and the erection, location and use of buildings and structures within the entire Town of Renfrew. After the By-law is in force, no land shall be used and no building or structure shall be erected, altered or used in any manner except in conformity with the provisions of the By-law. The By-law will not apply to prevent or hinder the continued use of any land, building or structure, if such land, building or structure was lawfully used for such purpose on the day of the passing of the By-law, so long as it continues to be used for that purpose. As the By-law affects all lands within the Town of Renfrew, a Key Map has not been provided.

Sunshine Coach

The Reach For The Rainbow Telethon in support of Sunshine Coach is taking place at Renfrew Collegiate on Sunday, Oct. 24 from 2 to 8 p.m. The entire event will be telecast live on Cogeco Channel 22 as well as simulcast over myFM 96.1 from 4 to 6 p.m. Public support is critical to the ongoing success of the Sunshine Coach Service, that has been serving the transportation needs of our fellow citizens who live with constraints on their mobility. Due to the efforts of more than 100 committed volunteers, all of the proceeds of the Telethon will go directly to helping to defray the operating expenses of the service. “There are a whole lot of great reasons for the public to come down and join us at RCI on the day of the Telethon,� says Colleen Sheehan, president of Friends of the Disabled. “This is the 25th anniversary of Sunshine Coach and we are encouraging everyone to stop by and be a part of this. Come down, help us celebrate and enjoy a piece of 25th anniversary cake with us.� Visitors will be able to watch the live entertainment featuring house band Mixed Nuts, along with a great lineup of talented local performers. Everyone is invited to come down, meet some of our local firefighters who will assist visitors to “weigh in� and add their spare change to our Kilos of Coins. There will be an opportunity to place a bid on several attractive auction items supplied by community-minded local businesses. J&J’s Chocolate Sensations will be on site with a Plinko game where a modest donation gives you a guaranteed chance to win one of several delicious chocolate prizes. While there, please remember to make a pledge in person. Alternatively you can call in your pledge on the day-of pledge line at 613-432-7299, or donate online by visiting www.sunshinecoach.ca and clicking on the Donate Now button.

From Page 10 Blimkie has made a couple of runs at a council seat in the past, recalling one election decided by about eight votes. She’s optimistic about this campaign. “What made me decide to run this time is I have the time, the ability and the energy to do the job well,” says Blimkie. Blimkie says there is a difference between passion that she brings to the table, and emotion, which too often leads the decisions of elected officials. Decisions will be based on the facts before her, says Blimkie, adding a clear focus is required. She pledges to make decisions that are best for the majority of ratepayers. “You are there to work for what is best for the township as a whole,” says Blimkie With her home-based Nortel job set to expire in the first or second quarter of next year, Blimkie sees the need for the township to capitalize on oppor tunities that could bring employment and other opportunities.

CHRISTIAN SCHOOL HOSTS BBQ

Friday afternoon, Sept. 24, students, teachers, family and friends gathered for a barbecue at the Renfrew and District Christian School to celebrate the school’s 25th anniversary. Pastor Dave Tigchelaar shared the story of the school’s history here in Renfrew, from its humble beginnings in 1985 at the St. John’s Ambulance building to the purchase of the former Stewart Hall, where the school stands today. Some of the school’s founders – Willie Oegema, Hank Schaly and Hubert Huyer – were recognized for their role in the school’s opening. The barbecue also gave the school a chance to recognize the Ontario Alliance of Christian Schools for their grant to replace 11 of the school’s windows. “Thankfully the rain held off and everyone had a wonderful time!,” said Jane Wouda.

RCI salutes ‘culture of excellence’ LUCY HASS

lucy.hass@metroland.com

Academic achievement was in the spotlight Wednesday as students were honoured at Renfrew Collegiate Institute’s annual honours students’ luncheon. Trustee Marjorie Doering brought greetings from the Renfrew County District School Board. “Make no mistake, no one is taking away who did the work. The students got here by working hard,” said Doering. She praised the school as one that “encourages a culture of excellence where, whatever you do, you do your best.’ Parents also got the nod for their role. “Parents really play a major role in the success of their children,” said Doering. She congratulated the students on their hard work and encouraged them to “please keep it going.” Gold, bronze and silver honour medallions were presented by Doering, co-op teacher Megan Lester, vice principal Don Bishop and Head of Guidance Todd Stewart. The students honoured this this year were: • Grade 9 – Laura Cobus, Colleen Fleury, Allison Gibson, Megan Hazen, Meagan Kong, Alison Martin, Courtney Miller, Kashif Mirza and Gracie Stewart; • Grade 10 – Mikaela Barnes, Anthony Burton, Meghan Forgie, TC Fraser, Andrew Heaslip, Erika Jenkins, Waqas Khurshid, Hilary Stafford, Joe Steele and Jeffrey Terry;

• Grade 11 – Sheena Berry, Lauren Churchill, Mae Donohue, Steven Norton, Brady Pender and Christopher Rigby. The Arthur H.

The University Women’s Club Award was presented by Susan Ringrose to Danielle Visneskie.

After initial OPP arrived on the scene Saturday afternoon, the OPP forensic truck was called. It arrived shortly after 4 p.m. Another trio of OPP vehicles, one pulling a trailer went through Calabogie shortly after 5 p.m. heading for the scene. OPP stayed late into the night collecting evidence at the scene. Some reports indicated Dunne’s family members were at the scene helping police and K-9 units with a search for him. The Lanark County OPP under the direction of OPP Criminal Investigation Branch is continuing the investigation with the assistance of the Ottawa Police Service.

EDUCATION

Confessions of a co-op student

REBEKA BORSHEVSKY

rborshevsky@metroland.com

Once upon a time, when most little girls wanted to be princesses when they grew up, there was one who wanted to be a vet. Before you start thinking, “Where is this going?” please, continue reading. So she wanted to be a vet. Sadly, her dreams didn’t come true: she learned that she hated the sight of blood. As you can imagine, the fact that animals bleed – and bite – didn’t go down so well. So she forgot that idea. But then a story of hers, about a surprise puppy (not a result of wishful thinking, I assure you), was published in the school yearbook. She was seven years old. And then, folks, there was light. She could be a writer. That, of course, introduces a whole new set of problems. Everyone knows writers don’t make any money. Well, she didn’t, and continued on in ignorant bliss for a while. Then she grew up, learned the inconvenient truth, and realized she had to either give up what she loved, or find a career where writers actually made money. Ha. That’s a dream in and of itself. However, she’d always been nosy (she prefers the word

inquisitive). She’d always asked questions. She’d delivered newspapers since the age of five. It was coming – that strike of inspiration, readers. She could be a journalist! Oh. But she’s painfully shy. But she wanted to write, wanted excitement and adventure. So she took a deep breath, squared her shoulders, and walked into the office of The Renfrew Mercury. And so here she is. Here I am. I hope that prelude didn’t put you to sleep. In fact, I hope I even struck some of you with that sweet twinge of nostalgia. But before I bore you, I’ll give you

some useful information: My name is Rebeka Borshevsky. I don’t want to tell you my age (it’s a girl thing) but I will tell you I’m in Grade 12… and that will probably give it all away, anyway. My interests, other than writing and boring people to death, include sketching and nagging people about grammar. If I could travel anywhere, it’d be the grassy hills of the British Isles. My favourite season is autumn; my favourite colour red. Please don’t ask about my favourite books, that could be a whole article by itself. And probably will be, so stay tuned. There you have it – the confessions of a co-op student. But there’s one thing left to confess: I am very excited to be here. And I hope, if even for a fleeting moment, I can bring a smile to your face or even make you laugh. If I have, let me know. Maybe I’ll quit and pursue stand-up comedy. You’ll probably see me around the community, poking my nose into things and asking lots of questions. If you do, be sure to say hi. I’d love to meet you. Or you can shoo me away if I get annoying, though I assure you it isn’t part of my dream to become paparazzi. There are limits, you know. Until next time!

Fighting cancer and helping others in the Dominican Republic VICTORIA SLIGHT The Jaguar Journal

Terry Fox was a great person; someone who believed in miracles. He did all he could to fight cancer and inspire others to fight it. On the morning of Friday, Sept. 24, St. Joseph’s Catholic High School held its annual Terry Fox Run on a route that included the Millennium Trail and area. The whole school participated and students had the choice to run or walk. During the week leading up to the run, our athletics council raised money for the run with the goal being $500 or greater. We surpassed our goal and as a reward, three students, Peter Vice, Jared Riopelle, and Zach McIntyre, and teacher Mr. Jeff Retty, got their legs waxed by members of student council. This was done on stage as an act during our talent show in the afternoon. Terry’s vision to raise awareness and money for cancer research has continued on throughout Canada and around the world, including St. Joseph’s High School as cancer continues to affect all of us. Each year, Grade 11 students from St. Joseph’s Catholic High School team up with students from Bishop Smith Catholic High School in Pembroke to go on a 10day humanitarian mission in the Dominican Republic.

During this mission, each student lives with a host family in the town of Yamasa in the Dominican Republic. The group is involved in a number of activities including delivering friendship kits of food to poor families, visiting local schools, and working in soup kitchens. This year’s DR Group consists of Eric Watters, Haley Gale, Zach McIntyre, Alanna Moss, Myles Songolo, Justin Reed, Rebecca MacLaren, and Jonathan Mulvihill, along with principal Mark Searson. This team has been fundraising since last spring by holding bake sales every Thursday and will continue fundraising until they leave in February 2011. The money they raise will go towards medical supplies that they take with them. The students look forward to helping others who are less fortunate and to making a difference in their lives. The journey continues to be a lifechanging experience for those involved and we will continue to support the students to help the community of Yamasa, DR.

RVH received a glowing review in a run-up to the accreditation survey it will undergo in December. Reneé Blouin and Linda Hunter, Accreditation Canada surveyors from the Ottawa Hospital, spent the morning of September 21 in Renfrew touring various departments, speaking with staff and asking patients about their understanding of the procedures of their care. This was a practice run for the hospital, which will undergo the official thorough accreditation process in December.

RCI Raiders sweep away the Blue Devils PETER CLARK peter.clark@metroland.com

The Renfrew Collegiate Raiders are back to playing the kind of football they are more accustomed to. The Raiders posted a 7-3 win over Perth’s St. Johns Spartans Sept. 28, and then rolled past the Perth Blue Devils 32-0 three days later on Friday afternoon at Ma-Te-Way Park. The wins up RCI’s record to 3-0-and-1 in the senior division of the Lanark-Renfrew High School Football League. The Junior Raiders rebounded from a season-opening 49-7 shellacking to Almonte by administering a thrashing of their own, 34-0 over the Blue Devils to level their record to 1-and-1. Matt Sharpe enjoyed a couple of big performances for the Senior Raiders. Sharpe booted two field goals and a single in the win over the Spartans, and then ran for the game’s first three touchdowns against the Blue Devils. Cameron Shields added the fourth RCI major before quarterback Cooper Brown zipped a fine pass to Jake Donohue, who took it 30 yards for the game’s final score. Sharpe tacked on two converts. Stephen Cuthill intercepted a Perth pass at the RCI goal line to preserve the Raiders shutout on the last play of the game. “The defence allowed the offence to get

rolling,” Senior Raiders coach Todd Stewart observed. “We played with heart, but we’ve got to be focused this week for the Turkey Bowl (Sunday in Arnprior). We can’t fear them, but we have to respect them,” the coach added of the Redmen. The Junior Raiders jumped out to a 2-0 lead early when the Blue Devils conceded a safety touch. Moments later Matt Murdock blocked a punt inside the five yard line, and ran it in himself for an 8-0 RCI lead. Jake Cartman rambled for two majors, both on runs of 50-55 yards. Rudy Kadlec scored on a sweep, and quarterback Devin Clouthier powered his way in from threeyards out for the other RCI six-pointer. Clouthier added a pair of conversions. “The team seems to have figured out the game of football,” coach Ed Oegema said of the Raiders’ improved play. “They put some points on the board.” The junior teams kick off Sunday’s Turkey Bowl doubleheader in Arnprior at noon. The senior game starts at 2 p.m. RCI girls basketball teams swept a doubleheader from the General Panet Panthers last week. The junior contest went right down to the wire with RCI surviving a 40-39 cliffhanger. Raiders coach Jason Wilson said the hustling play of Courtney Miller and Alison Martin were key factors in the victory.

The girls also played fine team defence, the coach added. The Senior Raiders bombed the Panthers 56-11. Sarah Dougherty notched 18 points, Mae Donohue 11 and Caitlin Dougherty eight points for RCI. The Raiders were four-set winners over the Opeongo Wildcats on the boys volleyball court. RCI was led by Josh Hudson’s blocking, serving of Gord Gaddess and Jack Crilly, and Mitchell Jamieson, who quarterbacked the offence, coach Dale Frew noted. “It was a great first game of the season,” coach Frew added of RCI’s 25-21, 16-25, 2511, 25-21 victory. The Raiders cross-country team turned in a quality performance at the Gryphon Open in Ottawa last Thursday. It was an impressive first meet, coaches Roger Poirier and Kathleen Mottershead said. The senior girls and senior boys teams both finished first overall while the midget girls were second and the two junior teams third. RCI also captured the girls overall title. Individual highlights included the 1-2 performances of Shawn Walters and Thomas Kellar, and Colin Topping with a stunning fourth-place finish. The coaching staff lauded the performances of Liam Beattie, Rachel Blair and Sam Agnew.

Jaguars battle the Opeongo Cats PETER CLARK peter.clark@metroland.com

The St. Joseph’s Jaguars and Opeongo Wildcats hooked up in a thrilling Upper Ottawa Valley High School Athletic Association girls basketball doubleheader Sept. 30 in Renfrew. The junior clash was particularly entertaining. The teams see-sawed back and forth down the stretch and finished four quarters deadlocked at 41. But in a four-minute overtime, the Wildcats caught fire and notched four consecutive hoops to snap a 43-43 deadlock en route to a 51-45 victory. “It was an excellent game from start

to finish by both teams,” Jaguars coach Mark Valliquette observed. “They (Wildcats) played just a little better at the end.” Melissa Verch led the way for St. Joseph’s with a dynamic 27-point performance. Sonya Bergin added 10. It was another solid effort defensively for coach Michael McMahon’s Jaguars in the senior clash. St. Joseph’s prevailed 37-22 over Opeongo, led by Sarah MacLaren’s 10-point performance. The Jaguars took care of business on the junior boys volleyball court Sept. 30. Trent Skelhorn’s squad outserved Pembroke schools L’Equinoxe Patriotes and Jeanne Lajoie Chevaliers by 3-1 margins.

By the time many of you get your hands on this week’s Renfrew Mercury, the 2010-11 National Hockey League season will already have begun. There is actually a game today that started at noon our time. Playoff-bound teams in no particular order: Philadelphia, Boston, New Jersey, Tampa Bay, Ottawa, Pittsburgh, Washington and Buffalo in the East. San Jose, Chicago, Detroit, Vancouver, Los Angeles, Nashville, Phoenix and Anaheim in the West. Paying the Price: There are some interesting goaltending scenarios around the league, and one need go no further than two separate stops just down the road. First of all, in Montreal, goaltenders are getting tough love. Carey Price was booed in the Canadiens first game after surrendering a goal to the Boston Bruins only a minute and a half in. Last Thursday with backup Alex Auld and the Habs trailing Buffalo 4-2, fans were chanting, “We want Price. We want Price.” Price better be good or fans at the Bell Centre might be singing Auld Lang Syne instead of Ole Ole Ole Ole during Habs games.

PETER CLARK PETER’S PUTTERINGS • In Ottawa, no one seems able to grab the No. 1 goaltending reins with the Senators. After watching last Saturday night’s Senators game with the New York Rangers on the tube, I can say Pascal Leclaire has had better nights. I fully expected to open an Ottawa newspaper Sunday morning to the headline, Pascal stops other shot in 8-5 victory. • NHL commissioner Gary Bettman was in Hamilton for a pre-season game recently where he was booed lustily. I’m sure that was music to his ears. Bettman’ has Canadians everywhere PO’ed and loves it. * * * Since 1992, the Green Bay Packers have had just two starting quarterbacks, Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers. The Chicago Bears have gone through 22 starting signal callers during that same stretch. And for this week: What teams were involved in the first shootout in NHL regular season history, and who won?

Thunder strikes Lightning in Almonte The Renfrew Timberwolves dropped their second consecutive game, to fall one game under .500 at 2-3-and-1 in the Valley Division of the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League. The Almonte Thunder posted a 6-3 triumph over the Renfrew club Saturday night. It was the lone game last week for the Wolves. The Thunder jumped out to a 2-0 lead early, and led 2-1 through 20 minutes. But it was two goals in the final minute of the second period that really did in the Wolves. With the score 3-2 in Almonte’s favour, lightning struck. Devin Montgomery connected on a Thunder man advantage with 39 seconds remaining in the mid-

For the health of it STEVE NEWMAN

steve.newman@metroland.com

When she’s not cutting hair or attending Renfrew council meetings, there’s a good chance Kate Windle is doing something for the health of it. The active cyclist and cross-country skier stole a good idea from Hoopnotica during a Toronto fitness conference last summer, and pressed the idea into action Saturday morning. “You just had to have one,” she says of the hula hoops provided for last Saturday’s Hoops for the Health of It event in Low Square, adjacent to the Renfrew farmers market. “My mother told us to get out and play,” she says, comparing that common occurrence with the lower activity levels and higher obesity levels of today’s youth across Canada. Hulahoops were popularized in the 1950s by Wham-O, and it’s reported that 25 million hoops were sold in a four-month period at the peak of the fad. Those having a try with the colourful hulahoops included Windle’s own daughter Karen and infant granddaughter Peyton. They looked on as Karen’s other youngsters, four-year-old Sawyer and twoyear-old Sadie, tried twirling the hoops about their hips. They were among about 50 people who dropped by for the one-hour event. About half of those tried out their long-lost or newly-found hula-hooping skills. “The awestruck expressions and wide smiles of the passersby made it all worthwhile for me,” said Windle. “We sure turned the heads of the people on the westbound Greyhound bus.” More importantly, Windle said she felt everyone took home “the valuable message that if we are not making time for health, we are making time for illness.” Saturday’s hula hoops were made by Christin Mayo, who’s selling her cheapest models for $10 and more expensive ones for up to $40.

It’s a rematch of last year’s final in the 2010 Ma-Te-Way Slo Pitch League. Having already earned their spot, ProTyre learned Sept. 28, they’ll be again meeting Scheel Communications for the league title. Scheel’s pushed aside Zig Zag in the fifth game of their best-offive semifinal series by a 16-10 count to keep defence of their league title alive. Chad Mullen had three hits and slugged a round-tripper for Scheel’s while Mike McMahon collected four hits and scored three runs. Mark Simons homered as part of a four-hit night for Zig Zag. Shannon Manion earned the pitching decision over Troy Thibeault. Scheel’s and ProTyre split the best-of-five final series-opening doubleheader Monday night.

Behind the Glass: More from Murphy’s Law Renfrew Curling Rink

After a difficult summer and overcoming many obstacles, many of us thought that we were finally on track only to have Murphy strike once again and send us reeling. The installation of the ice was well on its way and Rick Allen, Dwight Hayward and all the helpers, after having put in an incredible number of hours, felt they were going to meet the early start-up date. Then disaster struck. A brine leak from one of the refrigeration pipes under the ice resulted in extensive ice damage and put all the hard work at risk of having to be redone, leading to an extensive delay in our opening. But once again, instead of giving up, the ice crew put in long

A special thanks to Randy Pender for once again giving of his time in painting the ice for us and saving many difficult hours of doing it by hand. However, this has thrown off for our schedule as we will not be able to get on the ice until today (Oct. 7). This means that the new – Township of Horton curlers clinic will be held at 7 p.m. tonight.

Braedon Reinert (1G, 2A), Brendan Hill, Reid Barber (1G, 2A), Jared Burnette (1G, 2A) and Andrew MacAskill (2A) also contributed to Renfrew’s offence. The line of Crozier (3G, 2A), Burnette (1G, 3A) and Reinert (1G, 3A) paced the Atom Wolves past Carleton Place 5-3. Connery Campbell and Luke Moran shared goaltending duties in both games.

It was a fun afternoon for students at St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic School Sept. 17. After all, how often do you get to see one of your peers plant a whipcream pie in the face of the school principal? It was all in tribute to Terry Fox while raising funds for the fight to beat cancer. The goal was to raise $550 during the school’s annual Terry Fox Run. As an incentive, three teachers agreed to have a pie thrown in their face if the goal was reached, while principal Connie Dick would receive the

same fate if the amount was exceeded. “We raised $730,” organizer and Grade 2 teacher Kyla Halk said. “The kids went wild when they heard we reached our goal, and were so excited when we passed it.” For raising the most money, Taylor Sul had the honour of face-pieing principal Dick. Three other teachers also volunteered to take a whipcream pie to the face when the goal was reached. They were Grade 4-5 teacher Emily Russett, French teacher Mlle. Chantelle Emond and Grade 3-4 teacher Lindsay Cunningham.

NATURE

It’s the sound that attracts their attention Nicole and Joe Lapierre related a story to us about the curiosity of songbirds. When the Lapierres lived in Sudbury they had a business repairing aluminum boats. As you know, these boats are put together with many hundreds of rivets. A special gun is used to insert the rivets and hold the pieces of metal together. Birds are a curious lot and Nicole said that when the rivet gun was in use the birds arrived in large numbers. When the gun was turned off the birds went back to their hiding places. Birds will answer a number of people-made sounds. Very often if you make a “squeaking” noise (there is a special “squeaker” you can buy for the purpose) they will come out of hiding to have a look, sparrows, chickadees and finches are especially curious. A FEEDING FRENZY There is an exceptionally abundant crop of buckthorn

JIM FERGUSON SCENE FROM THE HAWK’S EYE berries this year and Cathy Campbell says that the American robins, ovenbirds and Yellow-rumped Warblers are gorging themselves with the fruit. These birds will remain longer with us in years when there is a plentiful berry crop. Cathy has a Nannyberry bush that bore an above average crop of berries but the robins stripped the bush early in the fall. Buckthorn berries are larger than currents and deep blue in colour. There is a sharp thorn at the tip of each small limb, thus the name. A NORTHERN FLICKER The northern flicker, sometimes called a yellow hammer, is a woodpecker but does not act like one. They search for their main food, ants, on the ground. They

will probe into an ant nest and pull the ants out with their long sticky tongue. They excavate many tree cavities but use only one which is a boon to other hole nesters. Eric and Anita Schubrink have a family of flickers feeding on their lawn at Stewartville. HUMMINGBIRDS STAY LATE Good Morning Jim and Ila; We received a phone message from Ron Ferguson suggesting we give you a call on Saturday morning regarding our concerns about the two persistent little hummingbirds that are still frequenting our feeder. We took some comfort in Ronnie’s comments regarding the fact that it is sunlight and not necessarily the temperatures that control their urge to migrate south. We would appreciate your comments about how much longer to leave the feeders up. We switched to a heavier feed as per your past article, and they seem to enjoy it. Ron and Brenda Golden Ron was correct. Prepara-

tion for migration depends on prior exposure to long periods of sunshine (as it was this past summer), but the timing is influenced by shortening days. Weather conditions also play a role. An open fall without frost will encourage them to stay. At the speed hummingbirds fly they could be south of the Great Lakes and warmer temperatures in a few hours. It is, however, very necessary to keep feeding them until they do not come to your feeders for at least a week. MANY SPARROWS Glenda Bidwell at Cotieville had a flock, very likely a family of White-crowned Sparrows searching underneath the feeder for any seeds left by the finches. Barb Bristow has the sparrows and sent us this email. Hi Jim and Ila: Yesterday and today I had a new pair of birds at my feeders and was wondering what they were. When I read your column tonight about the White-crowned

Sparrows I went to my bird book to look up a picture of them and that is what they are. I always read your column each week with great interest. I live on Barr Sreet in Renfrew. Barb Bristow Barb, our next search will be for White-throated Sparrows. Susan McDonald says that the sparrows keep the seed cleaned up at her feeder. Hi Jim and Ila: The White-crowned Sparrows have been at my feeder for two days; they love the Niger seed! The sparrows pick through any seed that falls on the ground from the feeders. Regards, Susan McDonald The White-crowned Sparrow is one of our most elegant species and one of the most studied. Experiments using this species have lead to much of our information about migration. Enjoy your birding. Ila and Jim Ferguson, 5313 River Road, RR 5, Renfrew, Ont., K7V 3Z8. Phone 613-432-2738 or email jamesh@ nrtco.net.

This Thanksgiving weekend, take a stroll and be grateful for Renfrew County’s natural beauty.

My recent column about people not being able to identify crops growing in the fields brought some interesting comments. The best one came from a woman who said she was out for a walk on a road in front of a large field of blossoming canola. Canola blooms in July and it is like a sea of yellow. It’s very pretty and picturesque. A car RURAL ROUTES stops nearby and a woman gets out and takes numerous photos of the field. The woman tells the walking woman that she has never seen such a pretty field of golden rods and is surprised that they’re out so early this year. “And it’s a huge field of golden rods,” she says. People often mistake canola for mustard plants and will wonder why the farmer doesn’t spray the field. Mistaking canola for mustard can be understood. But to look at it as pretty golden rods is hilarious. Let’s look at canola. The name “canola” was derived from “Canadian oil, low acid” in 1978. Canola is as different from golden rods as you could possibly get. Canola is a genetic variation of rapeseed developed by Canadian plant breeders specifically for its nutritional qualities, particular its low levels of saturated fat. Canola is the world’s only “Made in Canada crop”. Rapeseed was grown in Canada, mostly in the west, during the 1940s. The oil was used as a lubricant for steam engines on naval and merchant ships in wartime. By the 1980s, canola had replaced rapeseed in Canadian oilseed production. Canola belongs to the particular group of rapeseed varieties, a species of the much larger mus-

This process has never been applied for in Greater Madawaska. Does Reeve not remember he was part of this amalgamation disaster plan? Does Reeve not remember when it was completed and appointments made, that he was not one of them? Candidate Easton does not want to dismantle the transfer stations and does not agree with the Reeve concerning the hole digging.

The Angels gathered near your bed so very close to you. For they knew the pain and suffering that you were going through. I thought about so many things, as I held tightly to your hand. Oh, how I wished that you were strong and happy once again. But your eyes were looking homeward to that place beyond the sky. Where Jesus held His outstretched arms, it was time to say goodbye. I struggled with my selfish thoughts, for I wanted you to stay. So we could walk and talk again, like we didjust yesterday. But Jesus knew the answer, and I knew He loved you so. So I gave to you life’s greatest gift, the gift of letting go. Always in our hearts and our thoughts Love Chad, Taylor and Alleshia
