Small increase in Renfrew County budget STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com

The 2011 Renfrew County budget was particularly good news, but so was the 2012 one scrutinized during last week’s budget workshop that lasted more than six hours. Highlights included a negligible levy, a minimal tax rate increase for residential property owners, and early passage of the budget. The budget was scheduled to be formally approved yesterday, Jan. 25 following a Thursday, Jan. 19 workshop in Pembroke. Last year’s budget was approved in late March. This year’s budget process was started much earlier in the year, to give the county’s lower-tier municipalities more time to determine their portion of the tax pie. For a property owner whose $100,000 house rose the average assessment of 6.1 per cent in Renfrew County, to $106,100, their county portion of the tax bill will rise a mere 1.6 per cent, from $383.89 to $389.92. If the value of one’s house, based on a $100,000 assessment, remained unchanged, one’s county portion of the tax bill will drop 4.368 per cent, or from $383.89 to $367.12. See EARLY, Page 2

Celebrate Frew Fest Saturday

Mercury photo by Lucy Hass

ALL IN THE FAMILY From left, Garrett, Sydney and Byron Box enjoy the Family Skate at the Admaston Public School community rink Friday night. Families gathered to enjoy the rink and raise funds for the facility through the sale of hot chocolate, hot dogs and hamburgers.

Warm weather early this week wasn’t a good sign for the Redneck crash ice race. But colder weather later in the week is on the side of organizers, who are looking forward to another successful Winter Frew Fest. The Renfrew winter carnival made a successful return last year, after several years’ absence, and is slated to be

bigger and better this year. Monday night, town council approved spending $2,500 to support children’s activities and the 9 p.m. adult concert during Saturday’s Frew Fest at Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre. Every event takes place inside or next to the centre, except the Firefighters Fishing Derby and crash ice race.

The derby starts at the Bonnechere River boat launch; the crash race gets underway at 6:30 p.m. in O’Brien Park. FrewFest events include Magic with Steven Anthony at 10:30 a.m., balloon artist Mr. Dimples from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and the Pioneer Gathering. For a full schedule, see this edition’s Winter Frew Fest advertisement.

Healthy and early budget from county Continued from front The same property owner would have a $26.77 drop in taxes for the combined education and county portions of the tax bill, before the lower-tier municipal portion is determined this spring. Following minor changes to the draft budget, the county’s tax levy to ratepayers will rise 3.3 per cent, or $1.1 million, to $35.3 million. At the end of last week’s workshop, Sweet jested to the media present that the session represented “another Renfrew County best-seller.â€? More seriously, Sweet said: “I think it’s a responsible budget. We’re trying to address taxpayers’ needs ‌ and to give the municipalities a little bit of tax room so they can look at their needs.â€? The warden said he was also pleased to see the addition of new base salaries of $3,000 for each county councillor, even if raises are seldom popular. The amount of time and effort put in by the part-time councillors justifies the increases, as well as the fact they still remain the poorest paid in eastern Ontario, said Sweet. “It’s a positive step forward. It’s not been an easy one, necessarily, to accept.â€? The increases in salaries for

county councillor and the warden, plus new honorariums of $1,000 for major committee chairs and $500 for major committee vice-chairs, will cost taxpayers an extra $60,457 — or a change in the total tax levy by about 0.15 per cent. Positives in the budget, according to the warden, include capital works projects of about $12 million in road and bridge work and improved paramedic coverage. The latter comes with the help of $452,180 to address a gap in paramedic coverage in Whitewater Region and in the area that includes Killaloe, Griffith and Matawatchan. Around-the-clock touring paramedic response units, with an advanced care paramedic in each of those two regions, will help save lives, said Mike Nolan, Renfrew County’s chief paramedic and director of emergency services. The units are to be available as first responders to 9-1-1 calls and to provide community paramedicine in the rural areas. The units’ secondary goals will be to respond to Code 3 calls originating outside Renfrew County. These are calls for serious, but not lifethreatening, injuries such as fractures. Since 2005, the county has com-

pleted an average total of 77 Code 3 calls per year, with a high of 100 in 2010. The varied cost and nature of items in the 2012 county budget included: • improved systems to upgrade the video surveillance systems at Miramichi Lodge and Bonnechere Manor, costs covered by the Ministry of Health; • a three per cent (or $41,513) increase, to pay the county’s $1.425 million portion of Renfrew County and District Health Unit budget; • $13,500 for a casual truck-equipment operator during the winter months, to save paying $20,000 in overtime; • a 2.4 per cent increase to $3.2 million for winter road maintenance; • $2.1 million on Victoria Street to increase Petawawa’s sewage capacity; and • a six per cent drop, to $250,000, in Renfrew County timber sales, or what development and property director Paul Moreau calls a “conscious decision to step back on harvesting because of poor market conditions.â€? A major presenter at the workshop was Renfrew County treasurer Jim Kutschke. It was his 28th county budget.

McNab-Braeside Mayor Mary Campbell delivered her state of the township address at council’s first meeting of 2012 on Jan. 10. Campbell explained the state of the union address has been customary since she’s been mayor. “I would like to dedicate this address, with pride, to the council of the Township of McNab-Braeside, whose leadership during 2011 was impeccable in its commitment, integrity and work ethic,� said Campbell. She described 2011 as a year of change, challenge, community and achievement for McNab-Braeside. She cautioned that in the eyes of the province, the township’s most significant achievements are those that contribute to social, environmental and economic sustainability. “Without question, these days, the highest priority is given to job creation. McNab-Braeside is in a situation where over 85 per cent of our working families depend on employment outside the township,� said Campbell. She said one of council’s most important initiatives of 2012 will be to not only attract businesses but to attract and create employment opportunities. “While diversity is important, attracting businesses that build on our current economic segments of agriculture, building, recreation/healthy living, and arts/heritage/culture will offer our best opportunities for longterm sustainable growth,� said Campbell. “Encouraging business clusters that extend supply chains to include production, processing, distribution and ongoing services will do more build a stable economy than waiting for random expressions of interest.� “Much of our low cost of living and our high living standard depends on working in harmony with our natural environment and the protection of our natural resources, most notably water. Protection of our natural heritage features is critical to our future economic development as a desirable rural community in which to live and for recreation and tourism.� “The province has advised that, as a rural municipality, we take a planning approach that identifies our natural features, first. Buffers these with agricultural belts and then, plan development on the remaining marginal lands,� said Campbell. The Eastern Warden’s Caucus has already been advised by the province that Eastern Ontario will be required to prepare its own growth, she said. Campbell said that to adapt, grow and evolve while remaining true to family and community roots will require combined energy, talent and patience from council, staff and community. “The economic realities surrounding us means we will be forced to set priorities and to engage in longer term planning. Many of the issues we face require planning beyond the four-year term of office for this council,� she said. For more, visit yourottawaregion.com/community.

STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com

Salary increases for the county councillors and warden will amount to less than a fifth of one per cent of Renfrew County’s entire tax levy for 2012. But a few county councillors said they were still uncomfortable with supporting raises for themselves, even though a review by county councillors Walter Stack of Arnprior and Janice Visneskie of Killaloe, Hagarty & Richards showed they were the poorest paid in eastern Ontario. Now, this year’s budget will include larger-than-normal hikes in remuneration for county councillors, the warden and major committee chairs. Two meetings of the county’s finance and administration committee in January brought forward recommendations for increases in salaries for county councillors, honorariums for the major committee chairs and vice-chairs, and a base salary increase for the county warden. There was no opposition regarding the committee honorariums of $1,000 for committee chairs and $500 for committee vice-chairs, and the warden’s salary increase from $21,109 to $25,000. But the addition of an annual $3,000 base salary for all 17 county councillors, over and above their meeting per-diems, met with a slightly different response. Previously, county councillors received per diems for half- or full-day meetings, but no base salary. North Algona Wilberforce Mayor Harold Weckworth said he couldn’t support the $3,000 increase, given the state of the economy and the challenges other members of society face. “I won’t vote for this, but I do support the increase for the warden,” he said. Bonnechere Valley Mayor Jennifer Murphy said she, too, was uncomfortable with the $3,000 hike for herself and her colleagues, but supported the warden’s salary hike. It was difficult finding “apple-to-apple” comparisons among eastern Ontario municipalities, because of how they determine their pay scales. However, Stack and Visneskie said it was still clear Renfrew County councillor remunerations were easily the lowest in the region.

The average annual remuneration for local county councillors is $5,300. Remuneration among most other municipalities is $12,000 or more, while many receive closer to $16,000, said Stack. The treasurer’s statement for 2011 shows four of 16 county councillors received slightly more than $10,000 for per diems and expenses for the year. The 17th councillor, Warden Sweet, received a base salary of just over $21,000 and $5,673 in expenses. With per diems included, his total remuneration for 2011 was $46,590. County councillor remuneration is not just about money, stressed the 63-year-old Stack. He said adequate remuneration should be in place so that county council is represented by a wider portion of the population. Most county councillors are in their 50s or 60s. “Look around the council table,” said Stack. “It shows we’re not really getting fair representation of our community. “If you’re looking at an average age of 60, then I don’t think we’re getting a fair representation … if we’re going to draw younger people into the council, we’re not going to draw them without paying more.” Besides, said Stack, the job as county councillor is already a big commitment in time, both with official attendance at meetings, and preparation and examination of council documents. “I’m not suggesting it’s going to have to be a full-pay market situation, but it should offset some of the commitment,” said Stack. Even with the approved base salary of $3,000 (and no cost-of-living increase this year), Stack says Renfrew county councillors were still “well below many, many of the upper-tier municipalities in eastern Ontario.” Warden Bob Sweet said he didn’t feel overly comfortable talking about the warden’s compensation, since he sits in that position. “It’s not about me, it’s about the office of the warden,” he said, adding that he’d leave that mainly for discussion among other county councillors. But he did note the warden’s position represented “a very, very large responsibility” for the county. He also noted, as warden, that he attends many, many meetings for which he does not bill for expenses.

Greater Madawaska Mayor Peter Emon examines documents during last week’s Renfrew County budget workshop. In the background, from left, are Horton Mayor Don Eady, Renfrew County CAO Jim Hutton and administrative assistant Rose Gruntz. Visneskie said the warden basically serves as the county’s CEO and, as such, he or she should be paid accordingly. “We know because we’ve sat in the chair,” said the former warden. Renfrew Reeve Audrey Green said raising the warden’s salary was “long, long overdue,” while remuneration for county councillors was too. “My salary here is even less than what I get in Renfrew” as reeve, “and I don’t feel I’m hurting the taxpayer to get that additional remuneration,” added Green. Greater Madawaska Mayor Peter Emon responded similarly.

While recognizing it’s a difficult time for many ratepayers, Emon said county councillors work hard and should be recognized for that effort. “It’s not an extravagant request and I feel comfortable defending it,” he said. Whether it’s hard times or not, Admaston-Bromley Mayor Raye-Anne Briscoe said county councillors are never going to find it a pleasant exercise to approve salary increases for themselves. However, she said future fact-finding exercises of this nature might benefit by including members of the public who don’t sit on county council.

Old Valleyfest funds for Renfrew Winter FrewFest STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com

Funds remaining from the Valleyfest deferred revenue account have found two homes so far. Valleyfest, and its predecessor (the Lumber Baron Festival), held celebrations in Renfrew for several years before the Valleyfest committee dissolved in 2008. Funds left in the account were turned over to the town to help promote new events and festivals in town. More recently, Renfrew’s parks and recreation committee recommended spending $2,500 for children’s entertainment and the adult concert during the Winter FrewFest at the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre Jan. 28. Town council unanimously supported that recommendation Monday night. EXTRA FUNDS TO BIA Council also voted to transfer the remaining $5,215.74 in the deferred revenue account to the Renfrew BIA (Business Improvement Area). A summary of recent committee minutes say the money is for festivaltype promotions downtown, but also at the BIA’s discretion. ART IN THE PARK

ported a recreation committee recommendation that recreation staff work with the Renfrew Art Guild to provide in-kind donations or other services for the event. The first-ever Art in the Park is scheduled for July 14 and 15 in Haramis Park. The arts exhibition is being organized by the Renfrew Art Guild to commemorate the guild’s 15 years of involvement in community art. According to the guild’s website, this is a family event that promotes arts, culture, recreation and tourism. The art guild also says Haramis Park is ideal for the Art in the Park grand art tent, individual artists’ gazebos, vendors and parking. The arts exhibition is open to Renfrew Art Guild members, and to guest artists and artisans by special invitation of a Renfrew Art Guild member. Coun. Tom Anderson, who chairs the parks and recreation committee, said, “There was a lot we could do for them that didn’t require cash.” What those things are remains to be determined. “We’re kind of disappointed,” said RAG vicechair Peter Sidock, “but it’s water under the bridge, and there’s still in-kind

contributions. “I’m disappointed ... because it is a community event,” added Sidock, who hopes the event attracts 40 artists, including 20 from outside the area. HOG WILD PORK FESTIVAL Anderson indicated Art in the Park didn’t qualify as a community festival because of its commercial nature. The same reason was given for rejecting a request for funds from the Hog Wild Pork Festival, represented by Jeff Woito. The Hog Wild Pork Festival is scheduled for the May 2012 long weekend. Coun. Anderson said he “didn’t want to get into the issue of merit,” but said all three events will do wonderful things for the community. BIA chairperson Lisa Vincent says the Business Improvement Area group is interested in backing the pork festival, but will firm up its level of support at the BIA’s annual general meeting Feb. 21. BIA’s support could include providing supportive events on the main street as well as transportation to the festival at the fairgrounds. Vincent says the BIA is keen to support events that create excitement in town, especially when they’re in the downtown core.

Renfrew’s first-ever skateboard park is closer to becoming reality. Town council approved the designation of $40,000 to purchase the park’s initial skateboard equipment prior to the passing of this year’s budget. Council’s unanimous approval took place at Monday’s council meeting. Recreation director Barclay Mayhew said he anticipates another $10,000 will come from fundraising efforts of local youth, donations and contributions by a local service club and/or the business sector. The purchase of $50,000 in equipment is available only because the Brantfordbased firm, KSL Design, is offering a discount price. This is possible because KSL Design is manufacturing the same equipment units for Renfrew and the Town of Arnprior. Mayhew’s connections with the owner of KSL Design go back several years. For $50,000, Renfrew will obtain five major units — two quarter-pipes, two rail systems and one fun box (which consists of planters, steps and a rail). The normal price tag for the five units, says Mayhew, is about $70,000. The first $20,000 of $50,000 comes from the 2011 capital budget for the purchase of playground equipment. The next $20,000 is from the 2012 budget for the same. “I’m happy we’re moving forward and it’s going to be ready in the spring,” said Mayhew of the park’s phase one. If other money is forthcoming, expansion of the park will follow, anticipated the director. The purchase is happening after recreation program co-ordinator Jo-anne Caldwell received feedback from an estimated 50 youngsters and young adults about the elements of the park. Their ages have ranged from nine to

27, including a 27-year-old who says he’s been waiting for a skateboard park in Renfrew for as long as he can remember. Even better, the new units will be userfriendly for skateboarders, BMX bikers and inline skaters. The location will be the outdoor hockey rink beside the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre. Caldwell says young people are excited to see the park realized.

popular than ever because of the publicity of the X Games and those kind of events.” Mayhew says this $50,000 purchase represents a nice start for the town’s future for skateboarders, BMX bikers and inline skaters. He says the skateboard park will be an addition to an already wide variety of services at Ma-Te-Way Park. Services include walking trails, playing surfaces for

football, soccer, hockey and figure skating, softball, volleyball, basketball, ball hockey and baseball, as well as a playground structure, washrooms, telephone and an automated external defibrillator. A formal park opening may take place before the school year ends. Also, Mayhew and Caldwell say there’s a good chance skateboarders will provide a demonstration as part of Canada Day festivities.

PUB FOR RENT

Recreation director Barclay Mayhew (right) explains the reasons for the special price on new skateboard park units. “They’re super excited to have this in town. They want to have a place to go,” she says. “They want to have a place to hang out. And they want to skate and bike. “I’m extremely happy that this is happening now, and that this summer we’re going to have something in Renfrew.” Recreation director Mayhew says there’s always something for youth to do, but this improves the situation. “This is something that doesn’t have to be formally organized. And there’s a certain social aspect to skateboarding and its more extreme-type sports. It’s more

Rural mayor calls for sustainability in government LUCY HASS lucy.hass@metroland.com

This is the time of year when most mayors give an inaugural address, noting accomplishments of the past year and looking ahead. Not so in Admaston-Bromley Township. Over more than a decade as leader of the rural municipality, Mayor Raye-Anne Briscoe has graciously declined. “I never did ever go back over the previous year,” she reminded council at the start of Thursday’s regular meeting. Briscoe says it’s not her place to define accomplishment. “It’s up to the ratepayers to decide (what is accomplishment),” she says. As for looking forward, she calls it, “just ball-parking.” Briscoe prefers to replace inaugural grandeur with grassroots goal-setting. She is calling upon township staff and council to buckle down to tackle the “challenges we’re going to face” and assess ways to cope, in the long term. “I ask that some real blocks of time be set aside to work on how we’re going to finance and move forward in the next three years,” Mayor Briscoe said. She advised council that the federal and provincial governments are dedicated to cutbacks and local governments will be expected to follow suit. She wants municipal departments to

find new sources of funding, an admittedly “very difficult thing to do.” She also wants staff and council to find savings “without slash and burn.” One place where the mayor believes the township might find “really significant savings” is through multiple-year contracts. In particular, she wants the township to “get serious about our energy needs” with a close look at gas and diesel fuel consumption. “That’s one of the thoughts I seriously have,” Mayor Briscoe said, referring to the concept of locking in prices for more than one year in order to get a better rate, “especially in an economy as how we see now.” “The budget is yesterday’s job, not tomorrow. We’ve got to get at it,” she told council. “At the end of the day, you may tell me it doesn’t work and that’d be fine,” she said. But it won’t be for lacking of trying. Meanwhile, staff will be expected to do “more research and phoning around” to find efficiencies. “The magic word is sustainability. In order to progress you have to be sustainable,” Briscoe said. “I want this to be an opportunity. Let’s turn it on its ear. There’s a lot of ability around this table,” her pep talk said. “Historically, we’re doing the same thing every year. Let’s use our abilities,” she added.

Admaston-Bromley follows county-wide trend of declining building permits LUCY HASS lucy.hass@metroland.com

After starting out “gangbusters,” residential permits dwindled as 2011 unfolded. A building permits report of the past seven years revealed 2008 was a banner year with 13 residential permits with a total value of $2,675,000. Another 67 other permits that same year brought the grand total value to $4,881,500. Last year seven residential permits were issued for construction valued at $1,670,000. Another 45 other permits lifted the total value to $3,205,600.

Mayor Briscoe said the statistics reveal what is being seen in other municipalities. “It’s another statement about our economy,” the mayor said, adding that when it comes to residential development, “everyone pales in comparison to Petawawa.” Briscoe also reiterated her strong support of any efforts to review exactly what farm land is. She noted one particular property designated as agricultural land that, if someone asked where it was, “If I told you, you would say, are you nuts? “We gotta get it right this time,” she stressed.

Renfrew Chamber of Commerce makes saving energy its business

and Area Chamber of Commerce

Renfrew and Area Chamber of Commerce is a strong advocate for environmental sustainability within Renfrew’s business community and a leader in green initiatives. The Chamber underwent a lighting retrofit offered by Renfrew Hydro and funded by the Ontario Power Authority. The saveONenergy Small Business Lighting program offers up to $1,000 worth of free lighting upgrades for small businesses. The program includes a lighting audit and free installation of recommended upgrades that will reduce electricity use. The Renfrew Chamber of Commerce was the first to embrace the program. “The program was a no brainer. It keeps local electricians employed, and it reduces our electricity costs which are avoided costs for the Town of Renfrew,” said Tammy. “The Chamber receiving the benefits of an efficient lighting system is an added bonus.” Renfrew Hydro is proud to recognize the Renfrew and Area Chamber of Commerce as a Companies for Conservation award recipient for its significant strides in electricity conservation.

Grandma Township facilities popular LUCY HASS lucy.hass@metroland.com

The community facilities in AdmastonBromley Township are exactly that, and the stats prove it. Community services committee chairman Ray Pender reported Jan. 19 that use of the Barr Line Community Centre and Stone Road municipal office is steady. Last year the Barr Line facility was used 174 times, and the council chambers 156 times. In the latter case, council accounted for 49 of thoses uses – about one third. Mayor Raye-Anne Briscoe said how pleased she was to see both faciliteis so well used. “This place belongs to the people, so use it,” she encouraged. There is no charge for local groups to use the facilities but sometimes groups express their gratitude with donations, which the mayor says are “greatly appreciated.” Briscoe said it’s great the facilities are so popular. Coun. Michael Donohue agreed. “This is not an area where we want to

be considering any kind of user fees,” he said. “I’m very impressed. This (Stone Road chambers) is not a council facility. This is a community facility.” Mayor Briscoe doesn’t support the notion that council chambers is “some kind of holy shrine or something.” With plans set for the annual Douglas Frosty Fun carnival Feb. 10 to 12, Brisoce noted the important role played by recreation volunteers for which “we have to be ever so grateful.” “I don’t think there’s anything we do that builds so much a sense of community,” Coun. Donohue added. Mayor Briscoe also noted the importance of user-fee agreements with neighbouring municipalities so residents are able to access “all kinds of recreational opportunities we could never afford.” “There’s a limit to what a community of our size can provide. It doesn’t have to be provided (all here),” she said. Correction: A typing error in a recent Renfrew Mercury noted recreation wards 3 and 4 members as including: “Krystyna Devries, Nancy Devries, Nancy Briscoe.” There is no Nancy Devries.

NFU gives input on predator control LUCY HASS lucy.hass@metroland.com

The National Farmers Union, Renfrew County, was the lone group to respond to an Admaston-Bromley council request for input on the issue of livestock kills. Local NFU president David McKay’s Jan. 4 correspondence to township council said its members passed a resolution at their Jan. 2 meeting to respond immediately. They share council’s position that a resolution from Tweed recommending municipalities no longer be involved in livestock valuation should not be supported for the following reasons: • Predator control varies from region to region in this province. In Renfrew County, predator control is a big issue and is best served by the "local" council, who best understands those predator issues as well as the normal farm practices in this area. • Timing or window of opportunity to have the evidence of a kill inspected is a big issue. Therefore it is key to have local livestock valuers familiar to local farmers and living in the area do an instant inspection. It is common knowledge that the balance of the evidence of a predator kill usually disappears within the first 24 hours. • We all realize that the survival of farms is key to the survival of rural com-

munities. This is just another example of where it is most important that local municipalities support those issues which affect family farms. • In addition, farmers see more and more predator damage to livestock (and crops, which is another issue) by predators/species introduced into rural areas. It is more important than ever that farmers and rural municipal councils stay vigilant on these issues. One example would be that together we should encourage discussion that funding for this program be transferred from the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs to the Ministry of Natural Resources.” Livestock claims in Admaston-Bromley in 2011 dropped to 37 from 49 in 2010. Compensation paid to livestock owners meanwhile rose from $15,739.05 in 2010 to $17,929.70 last year. Last year the sheep kills rose from 18 to 29, while the number of cattle killed rose by just one from 19 to 20. More than half of the cattle kills (15) were calves. The most costly claims last year were an $1,819 cow-calf loss in Admaston in November, and a $1,350 purebred heifer taken down in Bromley Nov. 17. The predator in all 49 cases was identified as coyote. “There’s a lot of predator control going on,” Coun. Bob Dick said. “It goes on all the time.” Mayor Raye-Anne Briscoe agreed.

Swim” in Deep River. All swimmers were required to swim from the Quebec Side of the Ottawa River over to the Ontario Side with one stipulation. You need to have both a rower and a spotter in a row boat that would accompany your swimming journey. You guessed it. Gram was my rower. She rowed the 1 ¼ miles across the mighty Ottawa River cheering me on the whole way. Gram introduced me to fashion, pierced ears, sexy bathing suits, frog’s legs and cherry brandy. You have no idea how much she loved to shop! I can remember her taking me shopping one day. Gram bought me my very first black bathing suit as well as my first pair of ultra high, high heeled shoes. This, I know for sure, drove my parents crazy. Because my memories of my Grandma are fond, I wanted to see what memories some of the residents have of their Grandmothers. Ken recalls how his Grandmother, in her later years, suffered from dementia but could still belt out Christmas tunes along with the piano. Wellwood remembers how severe rationing during the war caused his Grandmother

to hoard not only her butter but everyone else’s. Another person shared with me that her Nan, a socialite in Arnprior, would do her ironing, sitting down, while watching her soap operas and another person recalled her Grandmother, while on her death bed, sharing the best part about dying was being able to eat as much chocolate as she wanted without worrying about her weight. I think memories of Grandmothers are very special indeed. Even though I don’t have many photos, I have my memories and they are always there. I can unpack them any time I choose. Mull them over, savour them and cherish them. They bring a smile to my heart. Then, I can pack them away until the next time.

Ready to hit the community rink at Admaston Public School Friday evening, Jan. 20 are the Gibbons children, from left, Chloe, Johnny and Ariel, with little Sophie in front.

So I was giving some thought to my Grandma. She died a few days before Christmas after suffering from Alzheimer’s for several years. My thoughts of her have been overflowing in my mind over the last couple of weeks. I don’t have many pictures of her but I do have many vivid memories of the woman I called Gram. Joyce O’ShaughnessyFlute was an amazing woman who not only raised 5 kids but ran the successful O’Shaughnessy Limited Insurance Company in Bancroft after my Grandfather died many years ago. She did very well for herself buying out other insurance companies over the years. Joyce was a very smart business woman. My memories of her are fond and I would like to share a few with you. Not only was she a consummate business woman but she was also a fashionista! Dressed to the nines was how you would always find her. Whether at work or relaxing with a beverage in her breeze-way, she would always be in high heels. I can remember chomping at the bit to get to Gram’s house so I could be let loose in her bedroom. Her closet was teaming with scores of high heeled shoes and drawers overflowing with jewellery. When I was 9, I decided to enter the “Cross River


Opinion EDITORIAL

Keep making fun of winter W

inter carnival time is here, and not a minute too soon. With the excitement of the Christmas season now a vague memory of overindulgence; and with the cold, hard reality of New Year resolutions wearing thin; it’s time for a little fun. Renfrew kicks off the fun with its Winter Frew Fest celebration all day Saturday at the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre, on the Bonnechere River and in O’Brien Park beside the Swinging Bridge. More carnivals will follow in communities like Douglas, Horton, Dacre, McNab, Northcote, Braeside and points beyond.

Sure, there are snowbirds who take flight for warm, foreign soil. But many Renfrew County residents like it right here at home, thank you very much. For some, winter means solitary pursuits like cross-country skiing or snowshoeing. Others prefer the thrill of downhill skiing, a game of pick-up hockey with buddies or throwing a few rocks at the local curling rink. Feel the need for speed? The region offers more than 2,500 kilometres of groomed snowmobile trails.

There is also a keen community of anglers who find joy and rejuvenation in the ancient art of ice fishing. Yes, Canada has a rich tradition of making fun of winter. A 1933 book by Edwin C. Guillet on Pioneer Social life tells the tale of our winter sports heritage – playful pursuits on ponds and rivers and lakes. Horses were also key to winter celebrations in days gone by, and they remain a reminder of our rural past as horsedrawn sleigh rides are offered at many of today’s carnivals. Winter carnivals are a wonderful dis-

traction during the long, hard days of winter in Canada. But, most of all, carnivals are about community and co-operation. In the coming weeks, towns and villages across Renfrew County will host carnivals, thanks to the tireless efforts of teams of volunteers who step up to the plate every year, to brighten the dark days of winter. Thanks to all these kind people who know that winter is only as cold, or as warm, as you choose to make it. So grab your boots, mittens and a cup of hot chocolate and enjoy.

Sports connections, with or without museum More than 40 years ago, as a youngster, sports was all I lived for. The love affair began in the Montreal suburb of Chomedy and continued when we moved to the southwestern Quebec city of Valleyfield, where I spent most of my teenage years. They were preoccupied with baseball, hockey, track and field, golf, soccer and football. Valleyfield was bigger than, but similar, to Renfrew in a lot of ways. Back then, there was a lot of baseball and even more hockey The major difference was the lack of anglophones on some of my hockey and baseball teams. I was the only English kid on one of my hockey teams. But it didn’t seem to make much difference. Ability, rather than one’s language, seemed to determine how much ice time one got. One season, before I found my true hockey calling, as a goaltender, I was still a slack-ankled skater who could barely keep up. That season, before the age of 10, I sat on the bench for an entire game that we lost 25-0. I skated off the bench for one shift, thinking the coach had signalled to me, but to my shock she called me back. I’ll never forget that moment. Fortunately, however, I had so many more positive sporting experiences. In the summer, if I wasn’t hitting plastic golf balls on the front lawn or cycling to the golf course to play on a real course, I was likely in the school yard, behind our house, playing baseball. It was a baseball town that has won eight Canadian Little League championships, and reached other finals, including one in 2011. Valleyfield was also where hockey reigned supreme. Track and field eventually became my best sport, but hockey wasn’t far behind, in a town where the national game resonated. Gosh, I even took a slap shot in the calf, inside my goalie pad, from one of the local junior hockey stars and practically viewed it as a red badge of courage. And when I wasn’t playing club or high school hockey, I feverishly followed the National Hockey League’s six teams. I did so with the help of my own scrapbooks, and hence another connection, albeit a distant one, with Renfrew. From the age of seven or eight, Gordie

STEVE NEWMAN STEVE’S SIXTH SENSE Howe was my hockey idol, a reverence that I maintained up to and beyond the time I met him in the same airport lineup, en route to the 1988 Olympics. What I’ll never forget is the photo that began my first of many sports scrapbooks. The final score was 3-0 for Detroit, my favourite team. But the really memorable goal was Howe’s 545th NHL regular-season goal, while the Wings were shorthanded, to beat Habs goalie Charlie Hodge on the shortside. My scrapbook photo showed one of Lindsay’s teammates, Floral, Sask., native Howe, breaking Rocket Richard’s mark on Nov. 10, 1963. The record stood until Wayne Gretzky broke it in 1994. Which is where Renfrew comes in. Unless I’m wrong, kids love memorabilia, especially when it comes to the game of hockey. And those who were once kids may love it even more. Which is why I hope plans for Renfrew’s National Hockey Association/National Hockey League Museum are realized. The museum is scheduled to open later this year, on the second floor of the post office building, while serving up healthy memories of a game that includes references to NHA/Renfrew Millionaires stars and future NHLers Frank and Lester Patrick, Newsy Lalonde and Cyclone Taylor. Undoubtedly, there will also be references to Ted Lindsay, the Renfrew-born Stanley Cup champion who played 1201 NHL games for Detroit or Chicago. Dreams of an impressive museum may never be realized, but let’s hope they are. A good museum can mean more than tourism. It could serve as a connection to this community’s history and the game in general. Even if we’re never a Newsy Lalonde or Ted Lindsay, at the very least an NHA/ NHL Museum would remind us that we too have played and watched this game … and been the better for it. steve.newman@metroland.com

Attendance was up at the 2011 Renfrew Fair PETER CLARK peter.clark@metroland.com

The Renfrew Agricultural Society named its 2012 board of directors at its annual meeting Jan. 18, and it was an easy choice. All 18 board members showed their interest to return, and are back to handle another Renfrew Fair this year. Dennis Briscoe completed his term as president at the meeting. Briscoe enjoyed his time at the helm, and said it was a learning experience. “I couldn’t ask for a better group (of directors) to work with,� he said. “We got a lot accomplished in the past couple of years. I got to see other committees and how the rest of the fair runs.� Bob Johnston takes over the reins as president. The 2011 Renfrew Fair was again busy at the gates,

particularly at the Barnet Sub entrance off Fourth Street where automobile traffic comes in. Sixty-five per cent of the people come in that entrance, committee member Ian Clelland noted. He thanked the two hockey teams, Rusty Blades and Millionaires, for again running the gates throughout the five-day event. Clelland also thanked the police department for their presence throughout the week. Attendance was also up. “The weather was fantastic all five days,� fair manager Judy Dobec said. Dennis Briscoe reported that it’s been hard slugging the last couple of years for dairy cattle entries. He said dairy farms are changing, and he suggested putting dairy cattle on hold for a couple of years might be the way to go. On the plus side, Murray Crozier noted, there were

Mayor Raye-Anne Briscoe offered. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The safety is there.â&#x20AC;? At Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting, Kunopaski reported he has found this winter more challenging than others because of the ever-changign conditions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since Christmas, winter has hit us a little bit every day,â&#x20AC;? Kunopaski said. TRUCK BACK ON TRACK Admaston-Bromley has found a way to bring the purchase of a new truck into accounting compliance. The truck was in the townshipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2012 capital plan but was actually purchased in 2011, with the ownership changed and the vehicle insured. The purchase was made early to qualify for an incentive program that ended in November. To resolve the accounting issue, it was agreed to transfer the funds from reserve for 2011 and then return the money to reserves. Council unanimously passed a motion to transfer the funds out of, and then back into, reserves.

The Pembroke Symphony Orchestra premieres Stepping Up To Dance, an overture commissioned by the orchestra in celebration of its 20th anniversary season, Sunday, Feb. 5 at 2 p.m. at Festival Hall in Pembroke. At the suggestion of an audience regular, the symphony contacted Christopher Reiche about the project and he enthusiastically agreed to take on the work. The organizers say, “With his upbringing in the Ottawa Valley and his in-depth knowledge of fiddling and step dancing, he was the perfect choice to compose an overture for us which contained the flavour of fiddling and step dancing.” Reiche grew up in Pembroke, where he studied piano with Marjorie Raddatz and step dancing with Rhodina Turner. He graduated from Wilfrid Laurier University in 2006, having studied composition with Linda C. Smith and Peter Hatch, and piano with Anya Alexeyev. He then went on to Victoria, B.C., where he completed his masters of music in composition with Christopher Butterfield and Anna Höstmann. His compositions range from solo works to works for larger ensembles. His works have been performed by the Quatuor Bozzini, The Vancouver Miniaturist Ensemble, the Aventa Ensemble, Michael Strutt and Eric Wilson, and the orkest de ereprijs. In 2011, Redshift and the Negative Zed Ensemble premiered his work Communicating Vessels at the Vancouver Art Gallery. Reiche now makes his home in Victoria, where he is one of the founding members of LaSaM, a group of composers and performers who work with a collaborative creative process to mount new works. He also performs frequently with the Victoria Phonographers Union and The Collective. Other musical activities include holding the position of sessional lecturer for first-year music theory at the University of Victoria, teaching piano, and coordinating the contemporary music programming for Open Space Gallery. In Christopher’s own words, “Stepping Up To Dance is an overture which brings the listener into the head of a step dancer travelling along the journey to a performance. It captures the feelings of the warm up, practicing, being surrounded by your own music and others’ music as they prepare, preshow jitters and finally the dance.” Reiche’s overture will be part of Old & New/ Bold & True, the second concert of the Pembroke Symphony Orchestra’s 20th anniversary series. This concert will present the music of Beethoven, Telemann, and Reiche. It will feature Jethro Marks, principal violist of the National Arts Centre Or-

chestra, performing Telemann’s Viola Concerto in G major. “This concerto, probably the first ever written specifically for the viola, demonstrates the warm, unique sound of an instrument that is all too often overshadowed by the more brilliant violin,” the organizers say. Marks is a Canadian classical violist and founding violist of the Zukerman Chamber Players. Marks was born in Vancouver into a musical family, and began violin studies as a child. He made his solo debut at the age of 17

with the Loudoun Symphony in Virginia, performing Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto. Soon after he switched his focus to the viola and began viola studies with Atar Arad at the Indiana University. In 1998, he began studies with Pinchas Zukerman at the Manhattan School of Music. As a chamber musician, Marks has performed at prestigious festivals around the world, including Aspen, Tanglewood, Santa Fe, Mostly Mozart, and the BBC Proms. He has performed at Carnegie Hall, Alice Tully Hall,

and the Royal Albert Hall, and has collaborated with artists including Itzhak Perlman, Michael Tree, Yefim Bronfman and Lynn Harrell. With the Zukerman Chamber Players, he has performed over 40 concerts around the world and recorded two CDs since 2003. In January 2007, Marks performed the World Premiere of Steven Gellman’s Viola Concerto with the Ottawa Symphony Orchestra to critical acclaim. The concert begins with Reiche’s Stepping Up To Dance and ends with Beethoven’s Symphony

No. 5. Advance tickets are $20 for adults, $10 for students, $45 for a family (up to five people). Admission at the door is $25, $15 and $60. Children 12 and under are free. Tickets are available at the Festival Hall box office, 613-735-2613. Reserved seating is available. The Pembroke Symphony Orchestra is a charitable, non-profit organization that performs live, symphonic music and strives to provide young and amateur musicians with the opportunity to perform in an orchestral environment.

Sames faces, new ownership at Studio D Hairstyles Darlene Turcotte has owned Studio D Hairstyles for 28 years, but she wanted one significant change while continuing to work in the hairstyling business. And she got her wish. As of last October, the Hurds Lake resident is now just one of the staff at Studio D, after selling the business to her friend and colleague, Margaret Hawthorne. Studio D is located at 11 Renfrew Ave. E., a hop and a skip from Scotiabank and next to Barry Breen Insurance. “Being able to keep my former co-workers is a bonus,” says Hawthorne, who resides in Horton Township. “We work well together and we have a great relationship. Everyone knows what they’re doing, and it’s just an easy, relaxed atmosphere.” It’s now even more relaxed for Turcotte, who says she no longer wanted the extra pressure of

Turcotte and Hawthorne have worked together for 33 years, the last 28 years at Studio D. The new owner says it will be basically business as usual. Studio D continues to offer Joico colours, texture services (including perms and various cutting and volume techniques) and the latest feather extensions. “We like to think people leave here feeling good about themselves and up-to-date with fashion trends,” says Hawthorne. “We’ll continue to bring the high-quality service our clients have become accustomed to.” For appointments, call during studio hours of 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursdays.

RED-TAIL STRIKES Bonnie and Ray Cadieux witnessed a rare capture when a red-tailed hawk caught a pigeon in their yard. They said that there were feathers scattered everywhere, no wonder; a pigeon has in excess of 5,000 feathers. When a bird is struck by a predator the muscles holding the feathers in the feather tracts relax and as a result the feathers are released. Whether it is a defence mechanism to distract the predator and give the victim a chance to escape is not known. If you see a number of feathers near your feeder but no bird, you will know that a predator has taken a victim. The Cadieux couple had an unusual bird at their feeder this week; the European goldfinch arrived at their feeder. Bonnie said that she had never seen a bird with such a large, bright yellow wing bar and dark patch around the bill. The yellow wing bar and the dark face patch will be red, depending on the location of the sun, and are the field marks of this finch. BALD EAGLES ON THE MOVE Bob Stuart and Rocky Lemenchick saw bald eagles on the weekend, one in Admaston-Bromley and one at White Lake. The birds are searching the open water

SAFFLOWER SEED

Chickadees, nuthatches, grosbeaks and cardinals find the oil-rich safflower seeds for fish and any other animals, usually to their liking. wolf kills, for food. The eagles also follow the movements of wolves, ravens and crows, all of which have a great â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;noseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; for food. The white head and tail of the adult bald eagles and the golden head of the golden eagle make identification relatively easy, but immature bald eagles and golden eagles require some study. Immature bald eagles have extensive amounts of white on the underside of the wings, while immature golden eagles have white patches on the wing linings, a wide black band on the trailing edge of the tail and a wide white band next the body. Both are dark above. Both of these species are in our area and we can make comparisons, especially during the winter months.

A strong beak is required to open the seeds. The chickadees and nuthatches are storing them under the bark and in crevasses for later consumption. Enjoy your birding. Ila and Jim Ferguson, 5313 River Road, RR 5, Renfrew, Ontario, K7V 3Z8. Telephone 613-432-2738 or email jamesh@nrtco.net.

BARRED OWL VISITS Marilyn and Vern Ferguson had a barred owl visit their property near Cobden. The bird spent time perched in several different trees and on the feeders, searching for mice no doubt. The Fergusons were able to get many pictures of the bird, and, true to its nature, it just perched and looked. Barred owls are very tolerant of humans and do not seem to consider us a threat to them. Most people that have been fortunate to have the birds come to their feeders were able to get several images of them. GRAY PARTRIDGE Marlene Hanneman saw a covey of eight grey partridge this past week, the first in several weeks. The partridge are having difficulty finding food because of the deep snow. The snow offers excellent shelter in the cold weather but makes food-gathering difficult. If you have an area where you know the

Hi, Jim and Ila: I just wanted to show you a couple of pictures I took of a robin sitting in a tree, last Saturday in Cobden. That was one of the coldest days of the year and here it was just trying to keep warm. Apparently this one didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go south. Gloria Tunn Gloria: The fluffed-up plumage, the evergreen perch facing the sun, plus food, berries in particular, are the necessities birds must have for spending the winter in our area. About 60 per cent of a robinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s food is composed of fleshy fruits and berries of both wild and cultivated plants. Leftover crab apples, raspberries, blueberries, mountain ash berries and currents are their winter fare. They will eat some oil seeds, raisons and other dried or frozen fruit if we place them on a platform feeder.

Visit to neighbour’s a vacation from Depression MARY COOK MEMORIES ma and I knew for a fact they were talking about the boys from the Northcote School, and other delicious subjects we could only imagine, but were never allowed to sit in on. Velma and I played with our dolls in the warmth of the kitchen and sometimes pulled a chair up to the table to watch Uncle Alec and Father take on Aunt Bertha and Mother in a riotous game of euchre. When it came time to serve lunch ... There was always a bountiful lunch when we visited neighbours; everyone would settle into the kitchen, and sometimes Uncle Alec would take out his fiddle, Mother her mouth organ, and the music would begin. And I would look around that room ... full to the brim with our two families, and I would think we were the luckiest people in the whole of Renfrew County. By the time we were all piled back onto the sleigh, my eyes would already be drooping, and I would do everything in my power to stay awake as we went across the 20 acre field. And once we were out in the open field, and it was a cold and clear night, I would look up at the Renfrew County sky and see millions of stars lighting up my world. The untouched snow in the rest of the field would glisten as if God had spread a blanket of diamonds from one end to the other, as the moon shone down its light on our land. I tried desperately to stay awake. It only took about 20 minutes to go from the Thom house to our kitchen door, but it was long enough that I don’t ever remember arriving home awake! Yes, winters were joyous times back then. Made warm by neighbours around us, and the sheer joy of feeling a contentment that came from just being able to spend a cold winter’s evening in the warmth of someone else’s kitchen. And at times like that, the Depression, I was sure, was happening in a place far away from Renfrew County.

Save a penny, save a pet The Ontario SPCA Renfrew County Branch is once again launching a penny drive to raise funds for the shelter animals. The 2011 drive raised $5,000 – half of the target goal of one million pennies. “It may take us two years, but we aim to reach that million-penny mark and bring in a total of $10,000,” says volunteer coordinator Erin Norris. Drop-off locations are throughout the county and a complete list can be found on the shelter’s website of www.renfrewcounty.ontariospca.ca or by calling the

shelter at 613-588-4508. Pennies will be accepted loose or rolled. Funds raised through the annual penny drive will be used to provide care for the shelter animals of the Ontario SPCA Renfrew County Branch located in Petawawa. For those who enjoy collecting simple, low or no-cost items for the shelter animals, the following are some other needed items: Canadian Tire money, bleach, printer paper, litter scoops and garbage bags.

January 30 to February 2, 2012 and February 6 to 10, 2012 from 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. (excluding school lunch period) Registration is easy. 1. Call your school (see list below and/or visit the Board’s web page at www.renfrew.edu.on.ca for further details) to see if an appointment is necessary for registration purposes.

It seems to me now, so many years later, that my fondest memories are from the days of winter on the farm during those lean Depression years. Perhaps it was because during the warm summer months there was always so much work to be done. Planting, harvesting, repairing fences, tending gardens and a host of other jobs that could only be done when there was no snow on the ground. But during the winter months, we seemed to have more family time, and certainly there were many hours spent visiting neighbours, going to Saturday night house parties, and church concerts which seemed to surface regularly. We often saw our neighbours who lived across the 20-acre field, which in the summertime was planted high with grain, but in the winter, with sleighs coming and going from our house to theirs, a path just wide enough to handle the team soon took form. The Thoms were a big and boisterous family. We called them Uncle Alec and Aunt Bertha, even though as far as I knew they were no relation whatsoever. But back in those days, youngsters wouldn’t dream of calling an adult by his or her first name. Their boys and ours played together, skated on the Bonnechere, set snares for rabbits, walked to school together, and were a constant aggravation to the older girls in the family and my sister Audrey. Their daughter Velma was my closest friend. It was in her bed that I first experienced sleeping on a feather mattress with a feather comforter over us. And I especially remember with great fondness how, on a cold and clear winter’s night, our family would bundle up in our heaviest clothes, Father would bring the flat-bottomed sleigh to the kitchen door, and we would pile on, and head across the 20 acre field to spend an evening with the Thoms. Their log house was much larger than ours, and the boys would settle into one of the back bedrooms and we could hear the sounds of laughter and playful scrapping coming from that direction. My sister Audrey and the older Thom girls would settle in the parlour and Vel-

Health

Register online to be an organ, tissue donor tissue donors is critically important to prevent needless deaths on the waiting list and to cut the wait time for patients in need of a transplant,” said Dr. Frank Markel, president and CEO of Trillium Gift of Life Network (TGLN). While over 80 per cent of Ontarians believe giving consent to donate in advance of their death is an important thing to do, less than 20 per cent of eligible Ontarians have registered their consent to donate organs and tissue. More than 1,500 Ontarians are currently on the transplant waiting lists. By registering consent to donate, an individual’s information is recorded and stored in a secure Ministry of Health and LongTerm Care database so it can be made available to families at the right time, for the purpose of ensur-

ing the patient’s donation decision is known and respected. With evidence of their

loved ones’ registered consent, almost all families consent to organ donation.

For the first time ever, Ontarians can register as organ and tissue donors online through a new website, BeADonor.ca. Every registered donor has the potential to save up to eight lives. Previously, Ontarians could only register as organ and tissue donors in person at a ServiceOntario centre or by downloading, completing and mailing a Gift of Life Consent Form. By logging onto BeADonor.ca, Ontarians can also confirm their current status as an organ donor. Many Ontarians mistakenly believe the signed donor card they carry in their wallet means they are registered, and that is not the case, as this card pre-dates Ontario’s registry. “Getting more Ontarians registered as organ and

Police

The identity of the deceased person discovered in a burnt out remote residence in Horton Township Jan. 14 has been confirmed. Following an autopsy at the Centre of Forensic Science in Toronto by a pathologist and anthropologist, the deceased has been identified as Aaron Barr, 76, of Horton Township. The cause of death was not de-

Renfrew OPP officers lay charges related to drinking and driving On Jan. 22 at 5:20 a.m., Renfrew OPP were dispatched to the McDonald’s Restaurant on O’Brien Road, for a possible impaired driver with open alcohol in a grey car in the parking lot. Police located the car in the parking lot, with two open cans of beer inside. The male driver subsequently failed a roadside alcohol screening test. Following further tests at the detachment a 25-year-old CFB Borden man was charged with driving over 80 mgs of alcohol, and driving a motor vehicle with open alcohol.

He was released on a promise to appear in court in Renfrew Feb. 29. The passenger, a 23-year-old woman from Renfrew, received a ticket for having open alcohol in some place other that a licensed place, residence, or private place. Const. David Ladd investigated. On Jan. 22 at 11:45 p.m. officers stopped a vehicle on Highway 17 near Calabogie Road for a traffic offence. Police noticed the driver had been drinking and he subsequently failed a roadside alcohol screening test. Following breath tests at the detach-

ment, a 25-year-old Gloucester man was charged with driving over 80 mgs. He was released on an appearance notice for court in Renfrew on March 29. Const. John Leaver investigated.

The outdoor skating rinks are open and everyone is invited to bring their skates for free skating, and we have partnered with the new Renfrew NHA/NHL Museum to let everyone know of our local hockey heritage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There will also be volunteers from the Renfrew Timberwolves

There will also be a number of door prizes and auction items, including a pair of Ottawa Senators tickets, plus parking pass; autographed Serge Savard Montreal Canadiens hockey jersey; a four-pack of Ottawa 67s tickets; an autographed Nick Foligno Ottawa Senators hockey hat; an autographed Craig Anderson Ottawa Senators game puck; and other hockey-related items. Bruce McIntyre, chair of the committee, encourages every-

The breakfast runs from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m., and there will be draws and auctions throughout the morning. The Renfrew and Area United Way has partnered with Valley Source for Sports for some of the prizes, and STAR 96 will be on-site to broadcast. The advisory committee was

formed to represent Renfrew, Horton and Admaston-Bromley. The purpose of this new Advisory Committee is to assist the Renfrew County United Way and provide advice to the county-wide agency in terms of program delivery, funding opportunities, and assistance in helping the United Way of Renfrew County meet the needs of the area.

Quit smoking in March and you could win a car. The Renfrew County and District and Leeds, Grenville and Lanark health units are promoting the annual contest that gives one lucky person who quits using tobacco a car. The main winner of the seventh annual ‘Drive to Quit’ challenge will receive the choice of a 2012 Ford Fusion hybrid or Ford Edge. There are also two $5,000 dream vacation getaways and seven $2,000 cash prizes up for grabs. One cash prize is reserved for a resident in the Eastern Ontario region. Ontarians ages 19 and older, who have smoked for at least 10 months in the year

2011, can enter. If you have quit recently, you may also be eligible to enter. Register by Feb. 29, then quit smoking or tobacco use by March 1 and remain tobacco-free for the month. To register and for details about the Driven to Quit Challenge, Ontarians can go to www.DrivenToQuit.ca. You can also get more information at www.healthunit.org or by calling the Health ACTION Line at 1-800-660-5853. To help you quit, choose a buddy who will support you as you go tobacco-free. If you win, your supporter will receive a $200 cash prize. Free support to help you keep on track is also available through the Canadian

Cancer Society Smokers’ Helpline at 1877-513-5333 and by visiting www.smokershelpline.ca. Sunday, Jan. 15 marked the start of National Non-Smoking Week in Canada. The 2012 theme is ‘Breaking up is hard to do’.

Tobacco addiction resembles a dependent relationship, says the Canadian Council for Tobacco Control, which has been hosting the week for more than three decades. It is encouraging Canadians to “kiss tobacco goodbye.” R0011261271 R0011261271

Winter is here and what better time to curl up with a good book?

sonality of a creative entrepreneur with a passion for perfection and a ferocious drive. • The Virgin Cure by Ami McKay – a novel set in 1871 Manhattan about a young poverty-stricken girl trying to survive a harsh life. We also have a large DVD collection that is always expanding, including TV series, documentaries and children’s DVDs.

Wolves hold on to fourth PETER CLARK peter.clark@metroland.com

After dropping two games to the Arnprior Packers, the Renfrew Timberwolves salvaged one point from their three-game weekend in the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League. The Wolves and home-standing Almonte Thunder skated to a free-wheeling 6-6 deadlock Sunday afternoon. Renfrew has a three-point edge on the Stittsville Royals in the battle for the fourth and final playoff spot in the Valley Division. The Wolves have eight games remaining and Royals 11.

Senior Raiders win B hoops title PETER CLARK peter.clark@metroland.com

The Renfrew Collegiate Raiders senior boys basketball team captured the B championship at the Raiders/Redmen Classic with a 3-and-1 record last weekend. The senior/junior hoops invitational event is co-hosted annually by the Raiders and Arnprior Redmen. The Raiders doubled league rival Mackenzie 60-30, lost 6752 to Peterborough, topped Fellowes 60-42 and defeated Notre Dame of Carleton Place in the B final 43-35. TC Fraser, Gord Gaddess and Liam Beattie played their best basketball of the season, RCI coach Adam Noack said. Among highlights were 20-, 17- and 21-point efforts by Jacob Crilly; 16 rebounds from Josh Hudson in the Raiders’ first

game and 13 more in the B final; 10 points from Cooper Brown in the semifinal, a combined 16 assists by Gaddess in the semi and B final; and a seven-assist effort from Joel Corbin in an earlier encounter. Crilly collected seven steals in the B final. The Juniors Raiders went 1and-3, which included two narrow defeats. After an 18-point win over the Mackenzie Mustangs, RCI fell 34-33 to Rideau High School of Elgin, dropped a 55-33 decision to the Arnprior Redmen, and battled the Opeongo Wildcats to even terms at 37-37 before suffering an overtime loss. The Raiders exchanged 3-1 decisions with the Wildcats in Upper Ottawa Valley High School Athletic Association girls volleyball regular-season action Jan. 19. The RCI juniors won while the senior girls lost.

Lambert leads U-9 girls to 5-5 tie DAN KIRKNESS UOVRA

The Upper Ottawa Valley Ringette Association Under-9 squad played to a 5-5 draw with Clarence-Rockland on Sunday. Malory Lambert scored four times and Hannah Hubert one. Christine Schwan recorded an assist while Alexia Jade Gardner was in net. The Tween C team recorded

a win and a tie on the weekend. Brooke Agnew scored a hat trick and added an assist in a 7-2 win over Gatineau. Renee St. Cyr scored twice and assisted twice, while Katie Schutt and Emily Johnson added singles. Other assists went to Taylor Virgin, Carissa Moore and Emmalee Reinhart. In a 3-3 tie with Ottawa, Maia Zohr scored twice and Brooke Agnew had a goal and an assist.

Is there room in Phil’s driveway for a second car?

You could probably get odds at Vegas. What are the chances Zdeno Chara picks a Vancouver Canuck for his team for this Sunday’s NHL all-star game in Ottawa? Conversely, will the other all-star captain, the Senators Daniel Alfredsson, get revenge on Toronto fans for their years of booing by not taking a Leaf ? Alfredsson has already said his first pick will be Senators teammate Erik Karlsson, not only because of his ability, but more importantly, Alfredsson’s kids won’t have it any other way. So, with Karlsson, and then

PETER CLARK PETER’S PUTTERINGS the Sedin twins available, Alfie will be able to put the foundation down on a good team of his fellow countrymen. While this is going on, there’s no guarantee Chara will pick any Leafs either, or at least, not Phil Kessel. Kessel is a former Bruins teammate dealt away to Toronto three years ago. I’m not sure if he left on good terms or not with other Bruin teammates or

coaches, but Boston fans sure don’t miss him. They chant “Thank-you Kes-sel,” for the high draft picks the Bruins received, every chance they get. I’m starting to do some math here. Alfie stays away from picking Leafs, and Chara doesn’t take Kessel. There is only one way this can go. As last man standing, Phil gets himself another car.

Enjoy the festivities: Hopefully the weather can get just cold enough not to bite into Renfrew’s Winter Frew Fest

this Saturday, or Hockey Day in Canada Feb. 11. Among outdoor events Saturday are the firefighters ice fishing derby all day, and the redneck ice crashing race in O’Brien Park by the Swinging Bridge at 6:30 p.m. Numerous events will also take place during Hockey Day in Canada locally. One which has stood the test of time and good ice is just down the road at Jeffreys Lake. The 10th Cracker’s Cup runs from 7 a.m. on, at Scobie’s Cottage. The target was 24 teams for the Feb. 11 event.

* * * The only two teams to reach the Super Bowl in three or more consecutive years are the Miami Dolphins (VI, VII and VIII) which included the undefeated season, and the Buffalo Bills, who appeared in four in a row in the early 1990s starting with Super Bowl XXV. We all know how that went. And for this week: I was watching a Montreal Canadiens game on the French channel last week. Name the only two players on the current Canadiens who could watch that game and understand what the announcers were saying.

Granite, Renfrew team up to win C title at Best Western event BARBARA WESTGARTH Renfrew Curling Rink

It was another great week for Renfrew curlers. Ted Weagle and Jeff Wilson from the Granite teamed up with our own Phil Marcella and Gord Eady at the 127th annual Mitchell Medal Invitational held in Utica, N.Y. The team made it to C flight finals with a record of 2-and-2 before losing their third game in the C final. The ladies also represented Renfrew well at the Best Western Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Challenge Provincials with a record of 3-and-1. The team of Barb Westgarth, skip; Shelley Jamieson, third; Stephanie Langlois, second; and Barb

Roy, lead had a great run. The first three games had opposing teams conceding in the seventh, sixth and seventh ends consecutively, sending the Renfrew team to the A semi-finals. The semi-final game was a nailbiter until the seventh end when the team from Newmarket took a five ender. This is the best record the Renfrew ladies have had in this competition and they have vowed to return next year to win the banner. Renfrew hosted the Shawville Curling Club in the Friendlies last Wednesday. The Friendlies is an intramural club mixed friendly competition in the Valley. Three teams from

nual Crystal Heart Curling Classic in Ottawa. The Crystal Heart is a fundraiser for the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

Calabogie Ski Race Club competitor Zach Wroe of Burnstown makes his way toward the finish at Calabogie Peaks in the I2 slalom race.

0126.382030

Calabogie Ski Race Club alpine ski racers kicked off the 2012 season in fine form. The I2 boys had three top10 finishes in their GS (giant slalom) race at Vorlage, Que., Saturday. Sean Swayze (Braeside) skied to a bronze medal, followed closely by Sam Alexander (Carp) in fourth place. Jack Alexander (Carp) bettered his first run to snag eighth place. The rest of the team posted very respectable results in a field of more than 60 racers. Zach Wroe (Burnstown) was 17th, Thomas Cousens (Stittsville) 22nd, Tyler Lefebvre (Calabogie) 28th. Eight-year-olds racing against nine- and 10-year-olds, Evan Sharma (Kingston) and Carson Lefebvre (Calabogie) were 39th and 49th respectively. Connor Allen had a strong first run, but difficulties in the second run placed him 52nd. The lone I2 girl was Alyssa Steggall (Stittsville) who

skied to 22nd in her division. In K1 action, Calabogie racers had a busy schedule Jan. 21 and 22, with a slalom race at Vorlage Saturday and a GS race at Camp Fortune on Sunday. The K1 boys just about owned the slalom podium, with Sammy and Alex Duff (Pembroke) earning the gold and bronze medals. Travis Reid (Kingston) was sixth. In the girls K1 slalom, Sophia Tan (Kanata) finished in 11th place and Lauren Campbell-Brunke (Renfrew) 13th. They bettered the feat in the GS with Sophia edging her way to a ninth-place finish, with Lauren once again two spots behind her. Jenna Wissing (Kanata) was 22nd, Lauren Ferguson (Carp) 32nd, Jessica Earle (Greely) 39th, and Emma Schreider (Kingston) 43rd in the same race. Meanwhile, the K1 boys celebrated another podium finish in their GS race with Sammy Duff landing in third. Alex Duff finished 20th. Fynn Guckes (Calabogie), Jack

Hamilton (Burnstown), and Travis Reid also participated. The K2s kicked off their race season with a GS race at Calabogie Peaks on Jan. 15. Todd Brooker, a former downhill ski racer and Olympian, was on hand to present the awards and sign autographs. With the help of many, many volunteers and some great snowmaking from Calabogie Peaks, the racers braved bitter cold to ski their runs. Mikayla Reid (Kingston) came in 17th place, followed by Aylen Ferguson (Carp) at 22nd. Gabrielle Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Aoust (Glenburnie) also raced. In the boys division, Christopher Pepin (Kinburn) was 20th. Race results from the Junior Division will be reported on soon. Next week, the I2s are off to Camp Fortune, with the K2s visiting Mont Cascade and Mont St-Marie, and the juniors at Cascade. The K1s have a weekend off, but will be part of the K1 Speed Camp, in the first week of February, hosted by Calabogie Peaks.
