Her hero is gone. Dorothy LudwigĘźs dad died a few days after a car accident in 2005, but his balanced and focused way of dealing with life serves as an ongoing example. Many Renfrew residents may remember her dad, Rev. Bill Hare, when he was the minister at Grace United Church in Admaston Township more than 30 years ago. They may even remember little Dorothy, who was born in Renfrew in 1979, but soon moved with her family to South Mountain, Ont., and later to Alberta. And if they donĘźt remember her, theyĘźll get to see or hear about her as she competes at the 2012 Olympic Games in London in air pistol.

Ready to call it a day: clerk-treasurer Steve Newman

â&#x20AC;&#x153;He knows us as well as we know us,â&#x20AC;? said Mayor Briscoe in making the announcement at the May 17 meeting of Admaston-Bromley council. Clerk Briscoe has held the job since April 1975. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was nervous, Katherine Lynch was the past treasurer,â&#x20AC;? she recalls of those ďŹ rst days on the job. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I only had two weeks to work with her, and then I was on my own.â&#x20AC;? In those days, the position was 8:30 to 3:30 four days a week, compared to longer days ďŹ ve days a week now. Since then she has worked in four different ofďŹ ces. At ďŹ rst, before working in the present municipal ofďŹ ces, which have since expanded, clerk-treasurer Lynch and council met at the clerk-treasurerĘźs home.

Bev Briscoe, one of Renfrew CountyĘźs longest-standing administrators, is stepping down as clerk-treasurer at Admaston-Bromley Township. Briscoe, 61, initially planned to pull the curtain on her career in October, but was convinced by Mayor RayeAnne Briscoe, whoĘźs also her sister-in-law, to wait until late December of this year. She agreed. With three vacancies of chief administrative ofďŹ cers or treasurers in area municipalities, the mayor ďŹ gured this would give the township more time to ďŹ nd a suitable candidate for the job. That process will be facilitated, as it has for other positions at AdmastonBromley, by Renfrew County human resources director Bruce Beakley.

Reduce medical errors to save lives, money: author Derek Dunn derek.dunn@metroland.com

Mercury photo by Steve Newman

Admaston-Bromley’s 37-year career as clerk-treasurer for Admaston Township or Admaston-Bromley Township will reach nearly 38 years when she retires in December.

Briscoe: Looking forward to doing new things Continued from front

When Briscoe was hired, council meetings took place during the day at a table right behind the counter of the municipal office on Stone Road. Challenges during her 37-year career included her battle with breast cancer in 2004 and with cellulitis in 2008, when she was under intensive care unit care for two weeks and struggled to breath. “It was actually worse than the cancer,” she remembers. “When I had breast cancer, I came back to work. I had to go through chemo and radiation, too, but thatʼs what kept me going, coming back to work here. I donʼt know what I would have done because it kept my mind occupied.” Looking back over her career, she tried to put her finger on the best part of the job. “I donʼt know how to respond … I just enjoyed the job. Every day I came here it was always something different. You never get bored, and like I said in my letter (of resignation), you never stop learning because every day is different. You might plan to do something, but sometimes you might never, ever get it done.” What she did well as clerk-treasurer is no mystery for the likes of Mayor Briscoe. “Admaston, Admaston-Bromley and Bev Briscoe,” said the mayor of her long-standing presence and steadying influence on staff and residents of the municipality. “Bev is very understanding of people. She has an excellent way of meeting people, even

people who are upset, so they get their needs met. She is not impulsive. She thinks things through and finds out the details and facts before making up her mind.” One distinct change was amalgamation in 2000. The amalgamation of Admaston and Bromley townships into one municipality made life more complicated, but not inordinately so, says the clerk-treasurer. “It did get bigger, but amalgamation went smoothly. And Admaston and Bromley were actually the same for me because I knew as many people in Bromley as I did in Admaston.” During the last election campaign, in 2010, the clerk-treasurer says she knew she wouldnʼt be back for another election, but hadnʼt yet decided when to retire. Now that she has, she says: “I thought it was time to let younger staff members take over. It was time. I was ready.” The retirement announcement also comes shortly before her husband, Dave, retires in July. Bev is the daughter of Basil and Ethel Mick, who died in 1981 and 2010 respectively. With retirement, she hopes to continue enjoying tasks around the house and spending time with her grandchildren Brandon and Erica, the kids of daughter Lisa Mosseau and son-in-law Steve. She also plans to do things she hasnʼt done before.

Early service agreement for Renfrew’s Coleraine subdivision

Critics of austerity measures say cutting hospital beds and workers isnʼt the best way to save money. It seems counter-intuitive, but they maintain the best way is to open more beds and hire more cleaning staff. It would have the added benefit of preventing some 24,000 Canadians deaths caused by medical errors every year, they add. The critics stopped by Arnprior May 18 on a whirlwind tour of 15 cities and towns, including Ottawa. Their analogy is that of three jumbo jets crashing every week, killing 1,153 people, and how governments would move quickly to solve that problem. But when it comes to medical errors in the health-care system - where 18 per cent of patients are harmed - nothing is done. “Itʼs just taken as a string of personal tragedies that happen to individual families that no one links together,” said Michael Hurley, president of the Ontario Council of Hospital Unions (OCHU). “We tolerate a failure level of one in five in the face of scientific studies that show how we can stop it.” William Charney, editor of the newly released book Epidemic of Medical Errors and Hospital-Acquired Infections, said governments have known for 20 years that overcrowding and improper cleaning are costly both in human suffering and tax spending. The book probes the systemic causes of preventable hospital deaths, including unsafe patient volumes, inadequate staffing levels, shift work, health care working conditions, lack of accountability, legal issues that conflict with patient safety issues, and staff training.

Cutting jobs and inefficiencies in many sectors of the economy can improve the bottom line. Health care isnʼt one of those sectors, Charney explained. When patients develop bedsores, C. difficile, and other hospital-acquired illnesses, the treatment cost can rise dramatically: anywhere from $10,000 to $85,000 in the case of bedsores. Properly staffed hospitals with nurses to routinely turn patients in the case of bedsores and workers to clean railings and other surfaces, would save tax dollars over the long haul, said Charney. He said Ontario Health Minister Deb Matthewsʼs approach that could see service and spending freezes is wrong-headed. Canada already spends between $7 and $10 billion annually on resolving medical errors and hospital infections. Together they are the second leading cause of death. “If you really want to go on austerity measures, this is how you do it: Putting money upfront will not only prevent errors and needless deaths, it will save health care dollars, because hospital stays will be shorter and liability costs will go down,” said Charney, who has 30 years of experience as a health and safety officer in Canadian and U.S. hospitals. “The minister has it all wrong.” However, the McGuinty Liberal government has a simple message that resonates: cut spending and reduce the $15-billion deficit. The counter message takes longer to explain, but Hurley and Charney are confident that when Ontarians understand the science, statistics and analysis arguments for increasing healthcare spending, the government will change course.

Renfrew council has unanimously approved an early servicing agreement for the 30-lot Coleraine subdivision. “Weʼre good to go. Weʼre pleased with the way things are moving along,” said Norm Bujold, who sat in the audience with business partner Morris Eady, to hear councilʼs decision May 14. Recent progress has been steady, but it has taken a long time waiting to see Renfrewʼs latest subdivision find its feet. “Itʼs taken since 1994 to get to this point,” said Bujold, knowing the original Coleraine Group started working back then to develop the Woodbridge Park area at the north end of Coleraine Drive. The 12 acres was purchased from the public school board in the 1990s.

What was home to RCI Raiders football games in the 1980s and 1990s should soon have infrastructure in place for 30 bungalows, says Bujold. Plans call for the initial installation of a $132,000 sewage pumping station after arriving from Kelowna, B.C., last week. “The great thing is itʼs going to add 30 single-family homes in Renfrew in a beautiful subdivision environment,” said Renfrew development and works director Mike Asselin. “Any growth in town is good.” The early servicing agreement is with Bonnechere Developments Corp., which recently bought out Coleraine Group. The Coleraine Group consisted of Bujold, Eady, Max Buxton and Doug Fraser. Bonnechere Developments owners are Bujold and Eady.

visionĘźs infrastructure entirely at the developerĘźs own risk. A subdivision agreement wonĘźt be signed until service infrastructure is in place. Town staff has reviewed engineering details and expressed satisfaction with the proposed construction details. The developer has also obtained the required CertiďŹ cates of Approval from the Ministry of the Environment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We should have services (for storm sewers, telephone, television and hydro) and roads and curbs in by this fall, and a model home on site,â&#x20AC;? said Bujold. Each home, at a

cost of more than $300,000, will be just under 2,000 square feet. Often called the Coleraine Subdivision, it will likely be named Woodbridge Park, says Bujold. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now all the good lots in town are sold that are close to downtown, so these are very, very unique,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;ItĘźs only a ďŹ ve-minute walk from downtown, and theyĘźre large lots, with the majority of them having treed backyards with no neighbours.â&#x20AC;? Most of the properties are pie-shaped, with minimum 60-foot fronts. Most are 60

feet by 200 feet, but the depth varies from 120 to 300 feet. There may also be a more direct walking path to downtown, via the back of the Presbyterian Church property. Bujold says $10,000 will be placed in trust, with the town, for ďŹ ve years to allow the building of a walking path, if the church permits right-ofway access. If the trail is not developed within ďŹ ve years, Bonnechere Developments will reclaim the $10,000. A 15-foot wide trail cuts through the church property for about 75 feet, says Bujold.

Michael Hurley, left, and Epidemic of Medical Errors and Hospital-Acquired Infections editor William Charney discuss the benefits of investing in nurses and hospital cleaners.

Overcrowding, improper cleaning costly, says author Continued from Page 3

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Governments need to have the political will to tackle this epidemic and to change the culture of the medical establishment to one of openness and accountability to prevent needless deaths,â&#x20AC;? Charney said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A motive of cost-cutting in the hospital sector is fueling errors. This includes an obses-

This fall, OCHU will push to have legislation requiring mandatory reporting of medical errors and hospitalacquired infections introduced at QueenĘźs Park. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The personal suffering this results in is staggering,â&#x20AC;?

Renfrew dog park planned for 2013 Renfrew recreation director Barclay Mayhew likes the prospect of having a dog park in town. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is an area of signiďŹ cant interest in many municipalities,â&#x20AC;? Mayhew told the May 14 meeting of Renfrew council. â&#x20AC;&#x153;ItĘźs something new to town, but not in other areas.â&#x20AC;? Although Ma-Te-Way Park is often the place of choice for walking dogs, itĘźs note quite a dog park, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A dog park is an enclosed area for dogs to run and socialize with other dogs and dog owners,â&#x20AC;? said Mayhew. However, a recent public meeting attended by about 30 interested citizens generated plenty of discussion. In fact, others unable to attend the meeting called the recreation department to

express support for such a project. Therefore, the parks and recreation committee is supporting the plan to create a dog park. As for theparkĘźs size, that remains to be determined. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They can be all shapes and all sizes,â&#x20AC;? said Mayhew. â&#x20AC;&#x153;ItĘźs kind of unlimited what they could be.â&#x20AC;? At the May 14 council meeting, council supported the recommendation calling for the recreation staff to form a committee of interested users to consider location, operational policies, fundraising for fencing and signs, and insurance implications. The plan is to bring forward recommendations that result in the establishment of a Renfrew dog park in 2013.

R0581123291-0524

Doug Holmes is disappointed the Renfrew BIA hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t renewed his contract for upkeep of the downtown coreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sidewalks, garbage and flowers.

EMC-GCP-6TH-BW-W20-2012-A

A familiar face wonĘźt be seen so often this summer. Renfrew resident Doug Holmes isnĘźt returning for an eighth straight summer to water the ďŹ&#x201A;owers, sweep the Raglan Street sidewalks and empty the downtown garbage. In a letter sent to him by the Renfrew Business Improvement Area last fall, he says he was informed the BIA didnĘźt have the money to afford his contract and replace the aging tractor he used on the job. Holmes, who lives on a disability pension, was receiving $100 a week for the work that ran through June, July, August and September. Last year he says he received a salary increase to $150 per week, for a total summer-season payout of about $3,000. â&#x20AC;&#x153;IĘźm going to miss it a lot because quite a lot of people came up to me and said I was always doing a good job,â&#x20AC;? said Holmes, whoĘźs in his late 50s. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really enjoyed my job,â&#x20AC;? he added, noting the job loss will make it more difďŹ cult to pay some bills. Born in Guelph, Ont., he came to Renfrew, his parentsĘź hometown, as a young boy. He has lived here ever since. He also does volunteer camera work for COGECO. He has worked for that company and its earlier local cable TV providers for

Baltimore Orioles construct a very substantial nest Hi Jim and Ila: I thought I would let you know that we have a pair of Baltimore orioles that are very busy gathering nesting materials to add to their nest here in Burnstown. We have been enjoying their activity this afternoon. The male is very bright and the female is more subdued. They have been gathering grasses, straw and bark. We put out some sliced orange-halves in the trees in the backyard to help them keep up their energy. They are nesting close by, but we are not sure exactly where. Scott Rodden and Georgia Quinn in Burnstown. Thank you for your email. If you place some coloured yarn (red and white) on some bushes the orioles will weave it into their nest and it will make the nest easier to find. It also helps the birds build a sturdier nest. SCARLET TANAGER

Penny Haley at Douglas saw her first scarlet tanager this week. She was amazed at the brilliant colours. Because of the scarlet body feathers and the black wings, it could

JIM FERGUSON SCENE FROM THE HAWK’S EYE

be called the black-winged redbird. The female builds a rather flimsy nest and the eggs can be seen from below. She usually builds in an oak tree. By the end of August the male begins to shed his scarlet feathers and replace them with lime green ones. When you first see the new colours you think you have seen a new species, scarlet, lime green and black. ROSE-BREASTED GROSBEAK

Hi Ila and Jim: We have just moved here and are happy to see new birds coming to our feeders and birdhouses on Eady Road. Although a very busy corner, we get many birds coming to feed. This past weekend, my husband and I saw a male rosebreasted grosbeak and two females. This is a first for both of us. What a gorgeous bird! The male has only visited once, but the two females visit daily. This morning, we saw an

eastern bluebird checking out our “four-apartment” birdhouse, which is located very high off of the ground. We are hoping they decide to nest and we will see the little ones fledge in a few weeks. Thank you, Jan and Archie Oakes. THEY ARRIVE ON TIME

Hi Jim and Ila: First of all, thank you for reminding me to put up my hummingbird feeder. Within 30 minutes of hanging it up with the requisite sugar water mix, we had our first ruby-throated hummingbird. It’s been quite a show since, with a lot of fighting over the feeder. We heard the whip-poorwill for the first time last evening on Mother’s Day! It is always great to hear them, although some times when you want to sleep they can be noisy. We didn’t hear them for a few years and are happy they have returned. Loons are on Olmstead/Jeffrey Lake and we have seen an osprey again this past weekend. Peter & Dale Poff

A BUSY BACKYARD

Hi Jim and Ila: I do apologize for sending so many emails this year but our backyard is crazy with wildlife for some reason. Yesterday we found an American redstart (unfortunately it hit our picture window) it is the first time we have seen this species. This year we are very fortunate to have three orioles (two males and one female). This is along with many yellow and purple finches, 20 or more white-crowned sparrows and the normal blue jays, hairy and downy woodpeckers. Any idea why this year seems so different or varied in varieties? Tom Sidney

were announced. Season winners were Betty Rowe and Yolanda Baillon with 39,230 points, and Barb and Brian Haydock with 34,450 points. Carol Spooner and Bill Neff were high scorers of the afternoon with 3,950 points.

Hi Jim and Ila: Just a quick note to let you know that I saw an immature bald eagle along the water’s edge at our cottage on a small lake on Constant Creek Saturday morning. Even without the white head it was very impressive looking bird, especially its talons. Cheers: Bill Welsh

WATERTHRUSH

Hi, Jim and Ila: I had two rare sightings this week, a northern waterthrush and a whip-poor-will on my windowsill. To see these two species, especially the whippoor-will is a rare sight for sure. Thank you. Carol. Rita Lafrance heard a whippoor-will on May 14 about 9 in the evening at Coldingham Lake. Enjoy your birding.

Horton volunteers to share Renfrew County spotlight Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

Horton council members regularly express pride in the number and quality of the townshipʼs volunteers. That same pride will extend outside the township, when Horton volunteers are among Renfrew County residents recognized at a special ceremony next month in Petawawa. The June 6 Ontario Volunteer Service Awards banquet will feature seven Hor-

ton volunteers. They will be Dave and Darlene McMaster, who will receive 25-year service pins; Arnold and Barb Dickson for 20 years; Gladys and Ralph Miller with fiveyear pins; and teenage volunteer Marydith White. These Horton volunteers were identified in a letter from Ontario Minister of Citizenship and Immigration Charles Sousa. Also on the volunteer front, Horton is

looking for a new chairman for the recreation committeeʼs kitchen sub-committee. Christine Bidgood-Henderson has resigned to focus on studies in a culinary course she is taking. The Countrymen, who provided the entertainment, helped produce an exceptional spring dance at the community centre. Dance revenue was $1,134, while bar sales reached $894.50.

Governments can save money by spending money Hospital cleaners, when there are enough to do the necessary work, prevent infections. A dirty hospital increases the work for more highly paid employees such as doctors. It stands to reason that more sickness means more work for them, which means more cost to taxpayers. The same is true of nurses. If enough nurses are working it means more attention is afforded to each patient, which means earlier identification of emerging illnesses and healthier patients. Having a proper number of nurses means, for example, they have more time to periodically turn patients on their side, thereby preventing painful bedsores. While the obvious point of preventing pain

The commonly held belief is that if only governments would cut spending, tax increases could be avoided. This is true in many instances, but is by no means a universal truism. If by cutting spending we mean to cut superfluous public sector jobs, which undoubtedly exist at the federal and provincial level, then that is a good thing. It will help governments avoid tax increases. However, if we mean to cut frontline public sector workers such as hospital cleaners, nurses, and others – including cuts to Ontario Works employees in Renfrew County who are now on strike – that will not result in saving us from tax increases. Hereʼs why.

and suffering is enough to sway some people, unfortunately it isnʼt true for all. The fiscal cost must be weighed. And patients who develop bedsores tend to require more treatment, thus putting more financial strain on hospitals. The same holds for a variety of other frontline workers in the public sector. Boiler workers in institutions, for example. They do difficult work that requires a sophisticated and specialized skill set. The fatal boiler explosion associated with Parliament Hill two years ago is an example of how serious such jobs are to maintaining proper health and safety. Again, though, the fiscal aspect is what needs to be argued with some voters. It is a

good bet that fixing that boiler equipment cost the taxpayer dearly. No doubt it makes a lot of sense to cut government spending in many areas to avoid tax increases. But it is by no means the only answer. Sometimes to save money governments have to spend money. And that is the essence of good governance: knowing how to wisely allocate spending. Trouble is, it requires long range vision and the ability to sell that vision to the voters. Instead, what dominates most western democracies, is a plea to votersʼ base instincts to keep “their money” at the expense of the common good.

THIS WEEK’S QUESTION

What’s your reaction to the publishing of the annual sunshine list of civil servants who make $100,000 or more?

What do you think of the recent IpsosReid poll that showed the federal New Democratic Party virtually tied with the Conservatives.

A) It’s valuable because it shows that government is out of touch and is spending far too much of taxpayers money on salaries.

75%

B)

It’s valuable because it dispels the myth that civil servants are overpaid; 0% In fact, they are appropriately paid for the important and often difficult jobs they do.

C)

It should continue, but to account for inflation, the list should be modified to include only employees making $150,000 and more.

19%

A) It’s about time the public caught on to the lack of transparency displayed by Prime Minister Harper and his Conservatives. B) The robocalls and F-35 issues finally pressed the right nerves in the political arena. C)

It’s a mere glitch in the polls following Thomas Mulcair’s election as the new NDP leader.

D) The NDP’s popularity won’t last. The Liberals will return to form.

6%

D) Stop the practice. It’s an invasion of privacy. People’s salaries are nobody’s business but employees and employers.

Mary’s dolls got the royal treatment Memories

To me, my dolls were real little people. Babies, really. I loved every one of them, and made awfully sure I treated each of them equally. All in like favour, as was the saying back then. There werenʼt two alike. And I had about six, all precious to me. They were all shapes and sizes, and some I could cuddle, as if they were real babies and had to be handled with special care. Although I tried not to show it, one of my most precious dolls was one I got as a surprise one Christmas. I had longed for it after seeing it in the Five and Dime Store in Renfrew, sure I would never have it. But there it was under the tree on that wonderful day back in the 30ʼs, when there was little money for such frivolity. One of my dolls was not one you could cuddle. First of all, I was frightened she might break. You see, her arms, legs and face were made of china. Aunt Lizzie had brought it all the way from Regina one year, not taking a chance on sending it in the hand-me-down box that came regularly– cast-offs her sons could no longer wear. This one came with a name already on a little tag pinned to her lacy dress. It wasnʼt a name I would have ever picked for such a beautiful doll. She was named Claire, but I thought she was much more suited to be called Margaret. Of course, my love for Princess Margaret Rose had a lot to do with my choice. I could spend hours playing with my dolls. I dressed and undressed them, sat them in the swing, making it into a pretend school room, and took

on the persona of Miss Crosby our teacher at the Northcote School. Of course, I was never as strict as was Miss Crosby. Other than the china doll, and the one I got as a surprise that one Christmas, there was nothing exceptional about my other dolls. One or two had the paint almost worn off their faces before I learned you couldnʼt wash them with soap and water. But I loved them just as dearly as the others. I went through a real ritual before I went to bed at night. Father, one Christmas, had made me a doll crib. Pale blue. It was big enough to hold most of my dolls, except the china one of course, because I couldnʼt take a chance on her being broken through the night from the thrashing about of one of her crib mates. Yes, I was sure, they breathed, turned in the crib, and like my sister and I, pushed and shoved to get a share of the bed. So this doll slept on a little padded quilt Mother made. It was on the floor beside the crib, and well away from the path of anyone who might be making a trip through the kitchen during the night. At bedtime, before I climbed the stairs to the big hall which served as a bedroom for Audrey and me, I gathered my dolls around me and crouched on the floor beside the little blue crib. I sang a song to the dolls fanned out around me, and then, just like Mother did before we climbed into our beds upstairs, I closed my eyes and said a soft prayer under my breath that they would be safe during the night. I placed them on the flannelette mattress Mother had made, and which matched the

Broadband being boosted in rurals Cheryl Gallant Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP

As part of the stimulus phase of Canadaʼs Economic Action Plan, Budget 2012, $225 million was provided to Industry Canada over three years to develop and implement a strategy to extend broadband coverage to as many under served households as possible. The biggest component of this strategy is the Broadband Canada: Connecting Rural Canadians program, which has helped provide broadband access to over 210,000 additional households. As your federal member of Parliament, I recognized back in 2000, when I was first elected, that our residents needed access to the internet if we were to fully take advantage and participate in a knowledge-based economy. I

am pleased those efforts are now seeing fruition. Once we formed government, and with co-operation and funding from all levels of government and the private sector, things started to happen. We have moved forward with a $170 million local broadband project to provide high speed affordable internet to at least 95 per cent of the homes and businesses in Eastern Ontario. The Community Access Program (CAP), that was implemented in 1995 to fill the gap in services until the information highway in rural Canada was built, is coming to a successful conclusion. When the Eastern Ontario Regional Network (EORN) is completed in 2014, that objective of the CAP program, Internet connectivity, will have been met.

nightgown I myself wore to bed. I made sure they were on their backs, the china doll on the mat at the foot of the crib, and then I covered them gently with the little blanket Mother had also made out a flannelette remnant. And then I checked each doll to make sure it was in what I thought was a comfortable position. Only then was I ready for bed. And then often a miracle happened over the night. While I was asleep in my bed upstairs, I wouldnʼt hear it, but when I got up in the morning, I would see that there had been a stirring during the night. I would remember exactly how I had placed the dolls in the little blue crib. But they would have moved. One or two would have changed places! And wasnʼt Sally at the foot of the crib the night before? And now she was cuddled at the head, with her face turned to the kitchen wall. And I would marvel at the miracle before my eyes. My dolls really were babies after all! Hadnʼt this just proved it? It would be many years before I could come close to explaining the miracle that I saw some mornings in the kitchen of that old log house. Was it a real miracle? Was it fantasy? Or was it my beloved sister Audrey, who was always out of bed long before me in the morning, who moved the dolls around so that her little sister would cling to a childhood dream for just a few years longer?

Wild Women Wilderness Art visits Renfrew library Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

Affectionately dubbed the Wild Women Wilderness Artists, they each relish spending time soaking in an Ottawa Valley landscape and translating it with artistic strokes to canvas. All three beamed, laughed and shared their experiences of painting in and beyond the Ottawa Valley over the last several years, during a May 9 presentation at the Renfrew Public Library. Wilnoʼs Joyce Burkholder and Linda Sorensen, who had renowned wildlife artist Robert Bateman as a high school teacher, and Kathy Haycock of Lake Clear shared their artistic experiences in the third of three Nature in Your Neighborhood talks. These have been a collaborative initiative of the Ottawa River Institute and the Bonnechere River Watershed Project, in conjunction with libraries within the Bonnechere River watershed. In promoting their talk, Haycock said there was nothing more enjoyable than sitting “within a scene, observing and absorbing intensely and painting. “I like to share my delight in being there, in experiencing natureʼs gifts of the landscape, the weather, wind, light, even movement and sound.” In their one-hour combined talk to an audience of about 20 people, each artist used a slide presentation of photos and paintings to describe their impressions of Algonquin Park and Renfrew County. The many images included Lake Opeongo, Costello Creek, Grand Lake, Barron Canyon, Cormac, the Madawaska River, Wilno, Foy Beach and Kamaniskeg Lake. Haycock also shared images of landscapes she has visited in the far north. PRIMARILY ON LOCATION

“We primarily paint outdoors on location … Algonquin Park, the Bonnechere River shed, Renfrew County; we have our favourite spots and we are always looking for new spots all over the area,” said Burkholder after confirming that all three are wild about painting out of studio while each bringing “distinctively different” styles. As an example, each brought a painting she had done the same day from Algonquin Parkʼs Costello Creek.

Differences apart, they come strikingly together philosophically. “I would say our primary goal is environmental education, creating awareness, of wilderness areas that we all want to see preserved,” said Burkholder. “We have a real wealth of nature in our own backyards. We all live in this area and do our painting in this area, and have studios and galleries open to the public, so this is our lives … devoted to what we see right outside our doors.” Haycock reiterated those sentiments, especially the joy of painting outdoors. Sorensen was less talkative. ‘YIKES!”

“Yikes!” she first said, admitting this was one of the few times she had talked about her own painting before a larger audience. In fact, she did less talking than her colleagues while presenting a wide variety of her photos and paintings, sometimes displaying a photo and painting (or interpretation) of the same landscape. Sorensen also said her eventual decision to embrace art, after raising a family, was partly possibly because of how high school teacher and world-renowned wildlife artist Robert Bateman instilled in her the sense that it was possible to be an artist. “That led me to this day. Really, I have to say that,” said Sorensen. “So I was very lucky to have someone like that embrace me at a young age. He was an excellent teacher and it was profound.” Looking to summarize her own background as an artist, Sorensen added, “I have lived in the area for 40 years, and I like to paint. And Joyce and Kathy said the rest.” Each of the three artists attempts to paint outdoors at least once a week. The exception may be the winter, but Burkholder indicated “weʼve had a lot of sub30-degree painting days,” partly because many of their paintings are done with oil, which isnʼt much affected by changing temperatures. All three artists are extremely mobile, taking their mini studios with them, backpacked and ready for modes of transportation that include the canoe. Burkholder noted she finishes most paintings on site, partially because “I

canʼt seem to complete them later on,” although she abandoned painting a Quebec barn during a huge snow squall, before completing the work a year and a half later. However, Burkholder said she prefers “to finish it in the moment.” One of Sorensenʼs photos most appreciated by the Renfrew audience was of an otter that had climbed up on the landing dock at Lake Opeongo. Other photos were of moose, osprey and frogs. Inevitably, perhaps, her photos included some of canoes, which she described as Canadian icons that are also wonderful modes of transportation for artists such as themselves. With the help of the canoe, she also suggested each of the three artists find more balance. “I think thatʼs what weʼre all looking for in our lives — peace, tranquility and connection.” Haycock suggested her beginning as an artist may have come by osmosis, since Group of Seven painter A.Y. Jackson painted with her father, Morris Haycock, and her dadʼs friend, Ralph Burton. Haycock didnʼt start working as an artist until she reached her 50s. Trying to describe her style, she said, “I guess I like people to see a gentle interpretation of nature, just treading lightly.” Haycock has also done considerable painting in the far north, like Salmon River in the Northwest Territories. Prior to the Wild Women Wilderness Artistsʼ presentation, Bonnechere River Watershed Project chair Kathryn Lindsay spoke about the Nature in Your Neighbourhood online community mapping tool and the new Renfrew County biotabase (an online database of flora and fauna in the area). For details about these and other projects, visit www.ottawariverinstitute.ca and www.BonnchereRiver.ca.

Renfrew man dies in truck crash Curtis Brown, 29, of Renfrew died in a singlevehicle accident in Hastings Highlands, north of Maynooth, early Sunday morning. He was pronounced dead at the scene after the Ford pickup truck in which he was a passenger ended up in the ditch off Byers Road.

Travelling in the box of the truck was an Addington Highlands man, 61, who received minor injuries. Charged with failure to remain at the scene of an accident was Tyler Garey, 21, of Central Frontenac Township. He was released from custody after being scheduled to appear in Bancroft court June 26.

Preparing next year’s student council at St. Joe’s HS Victoria Slight Jaguar Journal

From Monday, May 14 to Saturday, May 19, the cast and crew of the St. Josephʼs Catholic High School musical production of The Secret Garden were extremely busy with performances. This included evening performances for the general public, but also special day-time performances for Grade 7 and 8 students from various elementary schools in Renfrew County, and also, in front of their own school community. Overall, the audience turnout was great, and the cast had an amazing

time showing off their musical talents. This musical was produced under the direction of Mr. Jordan deBruyn with musical director Mr. Kevin McSheffrey – who both did a wonderful job. Congratulations to everyone who was involved in making The Secret Garden such a great success. As this school-year draws closer to the end, it is time for the student body to hold elections for next yearʼs student council. The available positions are: prime minister, who is responsible for the overall leadership of student council; two spirit ministers, who will jointly organize and lead activities to build

school spirit; public relations minister, who is responsible for communicating school activities to the public and school community; and student trustee, who represents the student body to the Renfrew County Catholic District School Board. Currently, students who are interested in one of these positions are campaigning throughout the school with posters and by using social media. Speeches will be held, where students running for one of these ministering jobs will have a few minutes each to discuss their platform and to inform the student body of what they

plan to do the following year if they are to be elected. Following these speeches, the student body will gather in their classes to vote for who they believe will be the best for the position. Good luck to those in the election. As a reminder to the parents of graduating students, many scholarships and bursaries go unclaimed each year because no one applies for them. If your son or daughter is graduating this year, please remind them to check in with the guidance office for a list of awards that they might qualify for.

Two-vehicle crash ends police chase Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

A high-speed chase began after a man was reported to have left an Arnprior-area gas station without paying for his gas Tuesday afternoon. The chase ended more than 80 kilometres later, near Petawawa, when the driver of the Toyota RAV 4 crashed into another vehicle just after 6 p.m. An OPP spike belt had been laid down in the area. Reported speeds of the pursued driver reached more than 140 kilometres per hour, as he avoided near crashes during the pursuit, including school buses and other vehicles on Highway 17. A section of Highway 17 near Paquette Road remained closed most of the night. No police vehicles were involved in the crash. Four people were taken to hospital, two in critical condition. One person in the two-vehicle crash had to be extricated. The Ontario Special Investigations Unit was called in to investigate.

1937 Eastern Ontario Travellers Convention in town MAY 24, 1912

LACROSSE MEETING: Last Friday night the lacrosse enthusiasts had a meeting in the library board rooms for the purpose of seeing what could be done to revive lacrosse in Renfrew. It was considered too late the season to endeavour to get into any league, and consequently no regulare club was formed. The outcome of the meeting was that Monday night would be the start of lacrosse this season in Renfrew a number of players have significd their intention to turn out. The leaders in the game hope that gradually there will be almost twenty four players in line. After a little practice a few trips out of town may be indulged in and there may also be some games here. NEW STEEL ON THE WAY: The Kingston & Pembroke Railway is placing a very large amount of new steel over the road this summer and the first consignment of it is due to arrive at Kingston on Friday morning. The steamer Kitchum has been chartered to carry over three cargos from Buffalo and the Kitchum is expected to arrive in port with the

OLGA LEWIS FROM THE OLD FILES first cargo on Friday morning. At the present time the company has two hundred and eighteen men at work on the line, and the company will have one of the busiest seasons in many years. A large amount of money is being expended and the engineers department has been very busy getting out all the necessary plans and arranging for the work. MAY 20, 1937

EASTERN ONTARIO TRAVELLERS CONVENTION COMES TO RENFREW: Mr. Leslie J. Fraser, president of the Eastern Ontario Travelers and Merchant Association, has been successful in bringing the annual meeting of the EOTM Association to Renfrew. The members of the association will visit here on Wednesday, June 3, and there will be nearly a hundred of these men attend-

ing. The meeting will be held at Renfrew Golf Club and the program includes lunch, golf, dinner and dance. Renfrew citizens welcome such gatherings and all hope the day will be well attended. DID YOU KNOW?: The Royal York Golf Club has sent a circular letter to all its members, and the purport of it is important as it is unusual. This circular has to do with a wildflower which grows on the golf course. The trillium has been adopted as the flower of Ontario. It grows in this and other golf courses, and is one of the most pleasing spring flowers. But the question which the secretary of the Royal York Golf Club asks of each member is “Did you know that once a trillium is picked the plant dies.” Most members probably did not know this. The trilliums when picked soon wither and the plant on which it grew dies. MAY 25, 1977

PEMBROKE AIDS ARC: Renfrew ARC industries are in for a little funding from Pembrokeʼs Civitan Club, who recently decided to

share its return from a planned casino night equally between Pembroke and Renfrew ARC organizations. According to Bob Amaron, Renfrew and District Association for the Mentally Retarded president, the Civitans will hold their one night fund raising venture June 30 and are offering 50 per cent of the proceeds to ARC in town. RED PINE A COUNTY RESOURCE: Bill Hall and Regis Pellitier take core samples of a red pine at a plantation near Dacre last week. Mr. Hall, who is part owner orf the Opeongo Forestry Service has a contract with the provincial government this summer to take an inventory of crown forests ready for cutting between 1978 and 1988. Mr. Pellitier, 23, is a student of the French National Forrestry School in Nancy, France and is in his final year. The Canadian “wilds” are part of a practical exercise French forestry students must undertake. For help for research, contact Olga Lewis at olewis@sympatico.ca

Huge donations, but more fundraising to do for Rotary Hall Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

Financial contributions by members of the public and the business community helped make the construction of Renfrew Rotary Hall a reality. But Bonnechere Manor community relations coordinator Robyn Arsenault says the fundraising journey to pay for the hall isnʼt

over yet. The Renfrew long-term care facility had an auditorium in its former home, but not in the current building that opened in 1995. The auditorium-hall opened, as an addition to the manor, in June 2011. Renfrew County, the City of Pembroke, the Bonnechere Manor, M. Sullivan and Son, and commercial and community donors have all

made financial contributions toward the $1.1 million construction project. $100,000 TO GO

But Arsenault says the long-term care home still has about $100,000 of its $424,166 portion to raise. Matching contributions of $10,000 from

Money Concepts and Aikenheadʼs Drug Store recently helped pay for the hallʼs chairs and tables. The manor must also find an undetermined amount of money, or contributions in kind, to provide blinds, audio-visual equipment and stage curtains for the hall. The Bonnehcere Manor is home to about 180 residents.

Dollars from Renfrew, not from AdmastonBromley Twp. Coalition for affordable policing requests funds Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

R0011410189

Renfrew council quickly supported a request for $1,000 from the Mayors Coalition for Affordable, Sustainable, Accountable Policing steering committee. Mayor Bill Ringrose said he hoped “that little bit more will be better for us all.” Renfrew council unanimously supported the request at the May 14 meeting, but Admaston-Bromley Township did not at its council meeting three days later. Admaston-Bromley council members suggested or said that there are already vehicles in place, including the Association of Municipalities of Ontario, that can address these issues. The group has made the $1,000 requests to address a list of nine items, including lobbying, bilingual communications, letterhead for press releases and correspondence, travel expenses to ministry meetings, public relations and other administrative costs. “If all 343 OPP-serviced communities contributed at the $1,000 level, we would have a pool of funds that would allow us to properly get our message out to the Province, public and police,” said the April 26 letter. The request was made as the Mayors Coalition examines the issue of rising police costs in small and rural Ontario municipalities. The April 26 letter also said, “Last year, policing in Ontario cost municipal tax payers 3.8 billion dollars. In most cases, policing accounted for more than a quarter of municipal operating budgets, some municipalities at 50 %. “The provincial government, without consultation and having no accountability or transparency, will increase the OPP salary, in 2014, another 8.5 %, which will add another 50 million dollars to the salary line. Who must pay? NOT the provincial government!” The letter goes on to say the situation (rising costs in policing) needs correction ASAP. During discussions of 22 municipalities with provincial ministers and opposition party critics at the 2011 Association of Municipalities of Ontario conference, the municipal group says it asked the Province to commit to items that included a review of OPP costs, formulas and deploy-

ment models to identity efficiencies. At the 2012 Ontario Good Roads Association, the Mayors Coalition for Affordable, Sustainable, Accountable Policing assigned six mayors to a steering committee role. Arnprior Mayor David Reid is one of the six. The others are Peter Politis of Cochrane, Gerry Marshall of Penetanguishene, Jamie McGarvey of Parry Sound, Dennis Travale of Norfolk and John Lessif of Tillsonburg. Meanwhile, AdmastonBromley Mayor Raye-Anne Briscoe says there is already ongoing dialogue between AMO and the Ontario government. “My question is, how, in these time frames and the needs that we have would the mayorsʼ group get the same amount of attention?” she said. Council members, including Coun. Mike Donohue, werenʼt excited about the prospect of the township paying out $1,000, when Admaston-Bromley already pays an annual fee of about $1,500 to AMO. “I have some concerns … that this may be extravagant. Is this going to be a new democracy thatʼs going to be a standing ad-hoc group that may go on and on,” said Donohue. “It seems to be a sizeable sum of money,” he added, wondering if certain steps, such as the development of letterhead for correspondence and development of a website are needed. “Iʼm not sure if the wheel has to be reinvented.” Similarly, Coun. Dirk Rook commented: “Is the Province interested in a true partnership where municipalities have some control over all costs.” “Thereʼs absolutely no question. (Continually rising) costs in policing are not sustainable,” said Mayor Briscoe of municipalitiesʼ ability to pay for police services. Briscoe said the municipalityʼs input regarding rising policing costs is “zip.” Given that the Eastern Ontario Wardensʼ Caucus already has a strong voice to AMO, she suggested this new steering committee on sustainable, accountable and affordable policing wouldnʼt be any stronger. Following discussion, Admaston-Bromley council voted to take the request for $1,000 as information only.

Torch run celebrates 25 years Peter Clark peter.clark@metroland.com

The Ontario Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics made its way down Raglan Street from the Renfrew Fairgrounds May 16. The torch run is the largest source for funds for Special Olympics Ontario, which supports more than 18,000 athletes with intellectual disabilities. This yearʼs torch run was special in more ways than one. It was also the eventʼs 25th year. Its stopover in Renfrew included a police versus Special Olympics basketball game at the Renfrew Recreation Centre, and a barbecue at the gazebo in front of the town hall. Special Olympics coach Ni-

cole Brown said the efforts of Const. Hayley Chaplin made Renfrewʼs participation in this yearʼs torch run possible. “It wouldnʼt have happened without Hayley,” she said. Brown also thanked others for their support. Renfrew OPP detachment Staff-Sgt. Colin Slight raised $200 as a rickshaw driver, while the barbecue raised $325. A mall toll back on March 31 brought in $2,700. That combined total of $3,225 from the toll, rickshaw and barbecue was shared between Special Olympics Ontario and local Special Olympics. A $1,000 was also raised by Sterlingʼs No Frills. Another fundraiser for

nies of the Games May 31. The torch run also made its through the Valley into Arnprior, Perth Carleton Place, Pembroke, Petawawa and Barryʼs Bay last week.

Renfrewʼs Special Olympians, a golf tournament at the Dragonfly, takes place this Saturday. Special Olympian Earl McNulty had the honour of carrying the torch down Renfrewʼs main street. Special Olympians Connie Gale and Kevin Reid got the royal tour in Renfrewʼs portion of the torch run. They were rickshawed downtown by Kelly Slight. Reid will be representing not only Renfrew, but Region 7 in the upcoming Special Olympics Spring Games in Kingston. Reid will be competing in 5-pin bowling. The final leg of the run concludes with the torch being run into the opening ceremo-

Olympics is the Special Olympics Classic at the Dragonfly Golf Links this Saturday. The cost of $80 for members and $100 for non-members. Dinner tickets only are $25. The four-person scramble gets underway to a shotgun start at 12:30 p.m. Dinner is at 6 p.m. Call Darlene Heaslip at 613-432-2578.

FULLY INSURED

A proud intelligent woman who is descending further into paranoia and delusion, Muriel is subject to swift and harsh mood swings which are often directed towards her daughter. Once a well-respected teacher, Muriel has spiraled into mental chaos. She often believes that she is being spied on, particularly by former employers, and her mind has created an imaginary suitor named Senor Rios. As Stephanie struggles with the emotional highs and lows of her motherʼs moods and accusations she tries desperately to regain control of her life. In a climactic and revealing twist of the play, Stephanie receives a visit from a social worker with the senior crisis centre.

The eighth annual Lois LeClaire Skin Cancer Screening Clinic is set for Friday, June 15 at the Renfrew Medical Clinic next to Renfrew Victoria Hospital, and as theyʼve done in the past, Drs. Radke, Clarke and DiPaolo will be giving their time to operate the clinic. It runs 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. “Lois was very adamant that people be aware of skin cancer,” Wakely said. Wakely herself had a spot removed after it turned out to be squamous cell carcinoma. “No matter how insignificant (a spot or bump on the skin) it might seem, get it checked,” Wakely cautions.

“Lois fought it (skin cancer) for years. Itʼs one of those preventable cancers,” Wakely said. “People are out in the sun a lot. Cover yourself up when youʼre outside.” Look after your kids by putting sunscreen on them, she added. “Put on sunscreen and use it more than once. If you put it on in the morning, it isnʼt going to last all day.” Sunscreen is like a seatbelt,” Wakely added. “You get used to it.” Wakely suggests you book an appointment early for the June 15 clinic. Previous clinics have filled up quickly. “We are focusing on people without doctors,” she stressed “Regretfully, we canʼt accept patients from the Province of Quebec,” she adds, observing that thereʼs too much red tape involved. To register, call 613433-3635.

Performance helps build Kenyan school From ECLIPSE, page 19

Muriel, in one of her moods had called in a complaint of abuse to the hotline, a call in which she has no recollection of making. Confronted by the young social workerʼs questions, Stephanie is forced to face the truth about her motherʼs condition and in a revealing dialogue explores the darkness that plagues her motherʼs mind. Itʼs been a year since Heather Sagmeister and Chris Kyte have hit the stage together in MOMologues. Known for their brilliant dynamic on stage, the two driving forces behind Echo echo Productions are eager to return to the spot light. This time they are pleased to announce that they will be joined by talented newcomers Kelsey Wagstaff and Herb Roseneck. In addition to the performance, Echo echo Productions will be helping a local school achieve a fund raising goal. Kelsey Wagstaff, who played Belle in Opeongo High Schoolʼs musical Beauty and the Beast, is particularly excited to be a part of this production. A young philanthropist, Wagstaff spear heads

a group called Project Huduma (which means Care in Swahili) at her high school and works tirelessly to raise money to build a school in Kenya. The student propelled organization is only $1,300 from its objective. In an effort to support Kelsey in her goal, as this is her last year of school, Echo echo Productions will have donation jars placed at the door for each performance. The Eclipse will be their most technically challenging show yet, and so they have enlisted the help of Jeff Scott, Stephanie MacGregor, Richard Laxton, Dylan Dagg, Chantel Richard and Yan-Nick Michaud to bring the show life. This production promises to be a profound and moving piece that has stretched the abilities and range of the groupʼs actors as no other production has. It will be without a doubt entertaining, but it will also be thought provoking and emotional for the audience. Show times are 8 p.m. nightly. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at Neat (1715 Calabogie Rd., Burnstown), at www. neatfood.com or at the door, though seating is limited.

Arnprior Redmen romp to county title, RCI Raiders slip to third Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

The Renfrew Collegiate Institute Raiders have won the Renfrew County high school track and field title 14 of the last 17 years. But it looks like the present king is going to stay in charge. The Arnprior District High School Redmen doubled RCIʼs points total in the 2011 county meet, then did the same last Wednesday (May 16) to capture their third straight title. With 122 athletes competing, the host Redmen had a runaway first-place total of 881 points. The General Panet Panthers, whose Ty Lebannister produced a dramatic come-frombehind victory in the 4 x 400-metre relay to end the meet, placed second with 414 points. RCI was third with 388 and Fellowes High School of Pembroke placed fourth with 346. “Itʼs really dedicated athletes and the coaching program that has made us successful,” said teacher-coach Kelly Winter of ADHS. “Itʼs nice to have a little bit of breathing room,” she added in reference to the wide victory margin. The many athletes contributing to ADHSʼs win included Will Ruddy, Nathan Toman and Jacob Plunkett, respective winners of the indi-

vidual midget, junior and senior boys overall titles. Ruddy won the 100 hurdles (15.6), 300 hurdles (45.9) and 200 metres (25.5). Tomanʼs three individual victories came in the 100 hurdles (meet record of 14.2 seconds), 300 hurdles (meet record 41.1) and 200 (24.2) while helping the Redmen to a 1-2-3 finish in the high hurdles. Plunkett led the 400-metre hurdles (58.8), 200 (22.9) and 110-metre hurdles (13.7), in which he set one of the dayʼs three meet records. The former mark was 15.6. The meetʼs other record fell to Fellowes junior high jumper Tim Gorr. He cleared 1.72 metres to beat the old mark by two centimetres. Another Redman showing leadership was Justin Cameron, despite falling after a hurdles race in Brockville two weeks ago and dislocating his left elbow. At Wednesdayʼs county meet, he ran from a standing start and with a bandaged cast on his left arm. He forewent high jump, in which he qualified for the allOntarios (OFSAA) two years ago. But he entered the 400-metre hurdles, in which he took second in 59.5 seconds. On the girlsʼ side, there was no shortage of

ADHS wins, including a 1-2-3 finish for Tasha Zoryk (14.1), Melissa Kargus and Emma Cavanagh in the 80-metre junior hurdles, Michelle Wheelerʼs senior 400-metre win (62.3), and junior and senior pole vault wins for Jamie Burnett (2.20 metres) and Janessa Russett (1.75). RCI RAIDERS SLIP IN STANDINGS

RCI, which outshone the Redmen for years, has slipped in the ranks following a big drop in participation in the last three years. In previous years, track coach Roger Poirier says the Raiders often fielded teams of 70 or more students, but this yearʼs total was less than 40. Nevertheless, RCI had its share of strong performers in last weekʼs meet. Among them were Saralyn Deslaurier and Amanda Tubman. They shared the individual junior girlsʼ overall title with Toe Greenfield of Mackenzie High School when each three won three events. Tubman, who won discus and shot put last year, added another title while competing in javelin for the first time at the county level. Tubman, who admitted her distances werenʼt as long as last year because she hasnʼt trained

as hard, won the shot in 8.83 metres, took the discus by just 10 centimetres in 12.91 metres, and threw 26.01 in javelin to win by nearly four metres. Deslaurierʼs triple victory came in the 200 (28.4), 400 (64.9) and 300 hurdles (51.1). Josh Thero also had a triple win. For the first time, he outdistanced his regular rival, Logan McNulty of ADHS, 46.55 to 44.15 metres in the junior boysʼ javelin. That was his third win of the meet, after winning the triple jump in 11.09 metres and long jump in 5.32 metres. Ironically, Theo had an unenthusiastic introduction to his newest event this season, until he realized he might be good at it. Furthermore, he likes how javelin results can turn on a dime. “Itʼs the intensity I like, knowing your opponent can beat you with just one throw.” Other strong RCI showings included Dane Brumm in the midget discus (38.91) and javelin (37.46, and silver-medal showings by senior throwers Colleen Fleury (discus, 33.45 metres) and Tyler Wilson (shot put, 11.88). Fleury was also third in shot put (9.67), just two centimetres ahead of ADHSʼs Jamie Brown. See Track and Field, Page 26

Horse racing fans tilt another for I’ll Have Another Iʼll Have Another. With a name like that, you know the horse must be Canadian-owned. Iʼm surprised heʼs not from the Ottawa Valley. After winning the Kentucky Derby May 5, and coming back to narrowly nip Bodemeister for a second time at the wire, in Saturdayʼs Preakness, it puts Iʼll Have Another in position to become the first horse in 34 years to win horse racingʼs Triple Crown. Heʼd also be only the 12th horse in almost 100 years to do so if he

and his closest competitor in 1978. Affirmed outlasted runner-up Alydar in all three races, but the combined total of victory was only about 2 and a half lengths. Iʼm looking forward to the Belmont on June 9. In one way, itʼll rekindle some old memories.

Once weighing a mere 52 pounds as a 16-year-old, the Renfrew resident is now at a healthy weight, and glad to be running and enjoying life a whole lot more. “Itʼs a big deal. Iʼve been in recovery over a year,” said the beaming Mahusky, 19, after her 3,000 run qualified her for this weekʼs EOSSAA meet in Belleville, “Thatʼs why my coaches and friends and family are so proud,” said Mahusky, whose dad looked on from the sidelines. “Iʼve suffered from anorexia for years, but this is my first year back in high school (running).” MacAulay, whoʼs regarded as a hard-working individual on and off the track and field scene, produced strong performances in the county meet. The senior boy anchored his 4 x 100-relay team to victory. He also placed second in the 200 (23.6), second in the 110 hurdles (14.8) and third in the 400 hurdles (67.8).

A star middle-distance runner while attending high school in Barryʼs Bay, Larry Reynolds went on to become a teacher. He was only 28 when he died in a vehicular accident in 1980, but he is remembered with the help of the Larry Reynolds Award. The prestigious honour is awarded each year at the Renfrew County high school track and field championships. The two recipients at the May 16 meet were Jessica Mahusky of St. Josephʼs Catholic High School and Andrew MacAulay of Arnprior District High School. “The award is given to the athlete or athletes who have overcome tremendous hardship, dedicated their heart and soul to the team, helped other people on the team, and generally show leadership, even though things are not always going their way,” said Roger Poirier, the meet official who announced the winnersʼ names. “They get past that and better than that, and make the team a better team.” Mahusky qualified for the EOSSAA meet with a fourthplace showing in the senior girls 3,000 metres after struggling for seven years with severe anorexia.

Reynoldsʼ sister Maureen Braceland, who lives in Barryʼs Bay, was pleased to hear who this yearʼs Larry Reynolds Award winners were. “Heʼd be happy with that because he always kind of cheered for the underdog,” she said of her brother, who did his university degrees at York University and trained with

the Toronto Olympic Club before returning to teach in Renfrew County. “He was passionate and intense about his running (and an avid camper), but he was a party-goer and a socialite,” she added. He was a teacher at St. Maryʼs Catholic (Elementary) School in Deep River when he died.

This was an opportunity, and she made the most of it. She completed her first lap, then the second, in her very first track and field meet. A visually-impaired Grade 11 student in the lifeskills class at Renfrew Collegiate Institute, the 17-year-old says music and language are two of her favourite subjects, as shown by her playing of the bongo, snare drum, xylophone and timpani, and participation in The Blue Notes choir.

The Redmen tried to steal the senior boysʼ 4 x 400 title with two Grade 9 and two Grade 12 students.

Sc

After hosting last yearʼs Canada East wrestling festival, Renfrew once again was packing their bags, this year for Charlottetown, P.E.I. RAWC athletes were pumped and prepared for competition with a goal to defend Renfrewʼs 16-year-old winning streak at this competition. With 300-plus wrestlers competing, matches started at 9 a.m. Saturday, May 12, followed by opening ceremonies which included the beating of Aboriginal Drums and speeches from dignitaries. Teams were introduced with a roar from the crowd when Renfrewʼs 52-wrestler team was announced. Wrestling resumed with Novice (910) and Kids (11-12) matches. Bantam (13-14) matches were completed Sunday, May 13. Renfrew captured five of the six team titles up for grabs, The bantam boys placing fourth. Coach and club president Shane Smith observed that only four points separated first to fourth in the bantam division. This race could not have been any closer, he added. Team head coach Jamie McDonald was very pleased with his wrestlersʼ performance, both on and off the mat. Team manager Tina Smith was both disappointed and relieved with the results as she had challenged the team to win all six team titles. She offered to have team members shave her head at the annual team banquet if that were the case. We missed this opportunity by only four points which could translate into one or two match victories. The club coaching staff must now make selections of those wrestlers who will be

invited to our team next October. “This will be a very difficult choice as we had such a good group this year,” said club head coach Larry Hanniman.

Big first for McIntyre, Barnes From Page 26

In preparation, the day before the meet she and guide runner Mikaela Barnes warmed up about 800 metres, from RCI to the Ma-Te-Way Park track. They then ran a 200, 400 and 800 together on the cinder track. At the county meet, they ran side by side. A string, held in Barnesʼ right hand and McIntyreʼs left, was the ongoing point of contact throughout the race. “It was a very great experience and a great opportunity,” said McIntyre. “I never ran an actual race before, and I quite enjoyed it.” Looking on was her lifeskills

teacher, Cheryl Barber, who soaked in the occasion. “Awesome. In one word, awesome,” said Barber, who started to cheer at one point, but was so emotional she couldnʼt get the words out. “She impresses me in so many ways, and this is just one of those ways.” For guide runner Barnes, it was a fulfilling experience. “I donʼt even have to do that much,” said Barnes. “Iʼm just another pair of eyes, and she does all the work.” In her own races, Barnes twice qualified for the EOSSAA meet, placing third in the senior girlsʼ 1,500 and 3,000 metres in 5:16 and 11:41.

Her dad was also a pistol shooter, who competed at the 1964, 1968 and 1972 Olympics. Nicknamed the Pistol Packing Preacher, his best showing was 15th in free pistol at Mexico City in 1968. He remains her hero because of his extreme work ethic. When he started tasks, he completed them. “He had that other drive to do something that he loved,” says his daughter, who lives in Langley, B.C., with husband Cam and their one-year-old son, Erden. “My dad, he knew how to inspire and to challenge me. From a young age, he did that. He pushed me to make my own dreams, but he also educated me. The great thing was he always allowed me to be myself and to do what I wanted to do.” The Pistol Packing Preacher, with support from wife Fran (nee Green) of Eganville, also instilled in his four children a strong respect for firearms. NO COPS AND ROBBERS AS KIDS

Games like cops and robbers just didnʼt happen in the Hare household. “He instilled at an early age that you never point a gun at anyone, even if it was a pretend gun,” she recalls. Dorothy and sister Lynda got started in shooting when their dad took them to a junior club on the outskirts of Edmonton. And steady improvement followed, with excellent results at the 1995 Canada Winter Games and 1996 Alberta Winter Games. Dorothy qualified for the Olympics in March 2012 after strong international showings forced an Olympic shoot-off for the one Canadian womenʼs air pistol berth at the 2012 Games. She emerged victorious, which is a small irony, given she has had a busier life since the birth of son Erden in March 2011. “I definitely donʼt have a clear answer,” she says of her world ranking, following such strong showings as first in the 2011 Pan American Games and 2002 Commonwealth Games, third in the air pistol pairs event at the 2010 Commonwealth Games, and third in the team event at the 2010 Championship of the Americas.

Raider girls net first-place finish Peter Clark peter.clark@metroland.com

If defence wins championships, then the Renfrew Collegiate Raiders are in good stead heading into the Upper Ottawa Valley High School Athletic Association senior girls soccer playoffs. The Raiders shut down all comers during a trio of matches at Riverside Park in Pembroke May 15, and then did so again Thursday versus the cross-town rival St. Josephʼs Jaguars. RCI blanked the Fellowes Falcons and Mackenzie Mustangs 1-0 on goals by Julie Gaddess and Laura Coulas in Pembroke. The Raiders also tied the General Panet Panthers 0-0. Maddie Kubiseski, Erica Jenkins and Brittany Godin all posted a shutout for RCI.

On Thursday, coach Ed Oegemaʼs squad clinched first place with their scoreless draw versus the Jaguars. RCI finishes the 2012 regular season on top with a 4-1-and-2 record. Natalie Doering scored for RCI to help the junior girls tie St. Josephʼs 1-1. RCI dropped a 2-1 decision to the Jaguars in junior boys soccer action. The Raiders tied Fellowes 1-1 and lost 3-1 to Bishop Smith in the senior boys soccer loop May 15. Itai Kaseke and Ryan Moriarity were RCI marksmen. Playoffs and the Renfrew County championship in all four high school soccer divisions run today. The action is taking place at the Bishop Smith, Fellowes and Riverside Park pitches in Pembroke.

Pistol shooting runs in the family. Dorothy Ludwig (right) is joined by sister Lynda Kiejko after winning the air-pistol pairs bronze medal at the 2010 Commonwealth Games. They tied for first with India and Australia, but were relegated to third on a tie-breaker. two, maybe three shooters, in London. To date Ludwig has qualified in air pistol and Cory Niefer of Saskatoon in the menʼs prone rifle and air rifle. Niefer was the Canadian rifle coach at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, but is making his Olympic competitive debut this year. A third athlete is an outside possibility in trap shooting, says Susan Verdier of the shooting Federation of Canada. If no one is selected, it would be the first Olympics in which no Canadian male or female has competed, despite the countryʼs long and illustrious fortunes in that event. If Susan Nattrass of Edmonton was to earn selection, it would be her seventh Olympic Games appearance. Her best Olympic showing was fourth in 2004. Canada has won nine Olympic shooting medals, its most recent a 1984 gold by Linda Thom in the 25-metre sport pistol event. To qualify for the Olympics, Ludwig won a March 2012 shootoff in Calgary against her sister, Lynda Hare of Calgary, and Lea Wachowich of Edmonton. “This has been a life-long goal,” says Ludwig of her selection after competing for 20 years. “Iʼm a little bit scared and a little bit excited to see it come to fruition. And to know Iʼm going to go to the Olympics and that I worked this hard, itʼs amazing to me.” Thinking of her dad, an emotional Ludwig adds, “Itʼs rewarding to me to have gotten to this point, to have stuck with his dreams as well as my

own. “Thereʼs always times in life when you think itʼs too hard, or itʼs too much. “Iʼm just so glad that I never gave into those thoughts to quit. Thatʼs what he taught me.” She also says itʼs “going to be such an amazing experience to join with all these athletes from different experiences,” calling the Olympics a place where athletesʼ hopes, joys, celebrations and other human stories can be heard. “She is a very talented and intelligent athlete,” says Ludwigʼs coach, Pat Gustafson of Woking, Alta. “Her success is built upon years of steady practice and improvement. Her father … provided a strong base for Dorothyʼs shooting skills. She has built upon this and is now competitive on the international level.” There are a few Renfrewarea residents who also remember Rev. Bill Hare and his family when he had the three-point parish for the Grace, Haleyʼs and Northcote churches. Two are Lynn and Ian Clelland who were married by Rev. Hare in 1974. “He was fun-loving, just a great personality,” said Lynn. “He got on with people.” In continuing preparation for the Olympics, Ludwig shoots at the Langley Rod and Gun Club thrice weekly. She also does three weekly workouts in the gym in addition to mental-training sessions at home. She also works as an administrative assistant for Power to Change, a non-profit group formerly called Campus Crusade for Christ.

Bishop breaks B standard again in 800 metres Melissa Bishop of Eganville has broken the Canadaʼs Olympic B standard for 800 metres for the second time this month. After running 2:01.81 at a Grand Prix meet in Puerto Rico May 12, the middle-distance runner followed up with another time below

the B standard of 2:01.30. This time she won the faster of two sections at a high performance meet in Tempe, Arizona in 2:01.24. If no other Canadian runs two B standards, Bishop could be named to the 2012 Olympic team.

Golf for a Cure July 7 at Renfrew The Golf for the Cure tournament is scheduled for Saturday, July 7 at the Renfrew Golf Club. Because of its popularity last year, the event has now been changed to an 18-hole event, with the format continuing to be a team scramble. Cost of the tournament is $60 per player, which includes golf, cart, dinner, and donation. The entry fee is due no later than Wednesday, June 27.

Call the pro shop at 613-432-2485 ext. 221 to reserve a spot. Single entries or team entries are both welcomed. Other upcoming events at the Renfrew Golf Club include the Mardi Gras Fun Night on Tuesday, May 22; the Sharpe Best Ball tournament on Saturday, May 26; a ball ďŹ tting clinic on Thursday, May 31; and the ďŹ rst ladies tournament of the season on Saturday, June 2.

Look in todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

Staff members operating St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s High Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hockey academy from left are Stacey McGregor, Meghan Cahill, Jeff Halk, Tim Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connor and Mike McMahon.

Combining studies and hockey hockey experience, all of whom share the same goal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to help develop players who can think the game as much as play it. And we want to help each and every one of them get closer to their maximum potential.â&#x20AC;? School principal Brennan Trainor is excited about the potential it has in other parts of the schoolĘźs fabric. â&#x20AC;&#x153;WeĘźve always aspired to nurture the giftedness and self-worth of every individual that passes through these doors,â&#x20AC;? says Trainor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This program represents another signiďŹ cant avenue by which students can achieve this.â&#x20AC;? The academy is open to boys and girls in Grades 9 and 10. Players interested in attending should make application online by visiting the programĘźs website at jaghockey. me.

St. JosephĘźs High School is delighted to announce the launch of a Hockey Canada skills academy as part of the schoolĘźs curriculum package beginning in September 2012. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is something unique,â&#x20AC;? says Jeff Halk, the programĘźs head administrator. â&#x20AC;&#x153;ItĘźs a tremendous opportunity for young hockey players to combine hockey development with their regular studies, and all of it under one roof.â&#x20AC;? As a Hockey Canada skills academy, on and off-ice hockey instruction is now offered as part of the schoolĘźs curriculum package. Now young hockey players in the area can grow in the game they love while accumulating recognized credits sanctioned by the Ontario Ministry of Education. Like math, science, and language, hockey becomes a formal subject in

the curriculum. â&#x20AC;&#x153;ItĘźs like any other subject we have,â&#x20AC;? offered head instructor Stacey McGregor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has to have full academic integrity, a strong theoretical component, and a credible program of physical ďŹ tness to make it complete.â&#x20AC;? In fact, credibility is a crucial element. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is,â&#x20AC;? says McGregor, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the real deal.â&#x20AC;? Just like in any other high school subject, there is a formal exam that needs to be written in order to attain the credit. As well, there is a rigorous regime of dry-land training that complements the theoretical and practical applications, resulting in the development of a player wellrounded in all aspects of the game. McGregor, an experienced veteran of competitive hockey as both a player and coach, heads up a staff of teachers with many years of combined

Renfrew goes Hog Wild Sherry Haaima sherry.haaima@metroland.com

Attendance at Renfrewʼs first Hog Wild Pork Fest could have been better, but organizers are generally pleased with how the event played out. Organizer Jeff Woito, of Sledzz Smokinʼ BBQ, said the event, held May 19-20 at the fairgrounds in Renfrew, received lots of good reviews. “It was great,” said Woito. “Everybody from out of town thought it was just fabulous.” The attractions, from Saturdayʼs demolition derby to the lawn tractor races on Sunday, proved popular with those people in attendance. Woito, however, wishes there had been more of those people. While it seemed that a lot of people visiting the area were in attendance, there seemed to be an absence of locals. Attendance, especially for the evening entertainment both days, was not what organizers had hoped. There were many highlights, said Woito, including the derby and the barbecue competition. “The lawn tractor races, that was some-

thing to see,” said Woito. Woito said organizers are definitely on board for next year and hope to make the derby and other events bigger and better each year. “Everybodyʼs on board to be back again next year,” he said. The chicken and rib cook-off, officiated by the Canadian Southern BBQ Association, was great fun, said Woito. “It was a blast,” he said. Rocky Mountain House took first place honours in the contest, Dave Gallagher and Jesse Welch under the monicker Beast Masters placed second and Ottawa Valley Glass (not the solar division, Woito noted) rounded out the contest with the third-place ribbon. Overall, organizers are satisfied with the first annual event. “There were people from Kingston to Timmins and beyond,” he said. “Our whole plan was to show Renfrew and the area off to visitors and we did that.” Woito thanked all those involved in making the event a success, including volunteers from St. Josephʼs High School, sponsors and the Renfrew Fire Department.

Cobden Taste of the Valley close to selling out It is only April and already the annual Taste of the Valley events held in August and October are close to selling out. Taste of the Valley showcases local food vendors and other local producers of various products in Renfrew, Barryʼs Bay and Cobden. The Cobden Taste of the Valley on Oct. 13 will feature over 100 local vendors. The main exhibition hall is already sold out, but there is space available outside the main

hall. The Taste of the Valley organizing committee encourages any local food producer that wants to take part in this event to sign up quickly as space is running out. The Barryʼs Bay and Renfrew Taste of the Valley events are held in August and they are also filling up quickly. Taste of the Valley is sponsored by the County of Renfrew and ProTyre in Renfrew.

NEW PRICE

According to Alastair Baird, manager of economic development for the County of Renfrew, it is not surprising that the events are filling up fast given the huge popularity of the annual showcase. “Each year Taste of the Valley attracts thousands of visitors to all three locations. Not only do local residents have an opportunity to sample and discover the local food producers, but many visitors travel to our area to spend the

day at Taste of the Valley,” says Baird. “Not only does it benefit our local producers, but the host communities enjoy the economic spinoffs of Taste of the Valley.” There is still time to showcase your local products at one or all of the Taste of the Valley events. Visit www.countyofrenfrew.ca and download an application. Taste of the Valley is also looking for musical acts to perform at Taste of the Valley.

Top performers honoured at Renfrew Rotary Club’s annual music festival Peter Clark

peter.clark@metroland.com

The Renfrew Rotary Club hosted its annual music festival in April. The vocals component was held at the Presbyterian Church while the Piano section took place at Trinity St. Andrewʼs Church. The awards ceremony was held May 2 at Trinity St. Andrewʼs. Organizers of the Rotary Music Festival congratulate the 2012 award recipients. TROPHIES AND AWARDS – VOCAL

TLC – Helping Those in need Peter Clark peter.clark@metroland.com

TLC is a program sponsored by the Champlain 433 Wing. It got it start in 2008 when a concerned group of citizens in Renfrew got together and successfully assisted a young man to acquire a new scooter. Knowing that there are many people in the community in need of assistance for medical and mobility devices, it was decided to continue to help others and TLC was formed, said program chairperson Suzanne Lachambre. With seed money from the Wing and its fundraising efforts, TLC is now available to

help individuals with a financial need, who are living in Renfrew to receive assistance with medical and mobility devices, Lachambre added. The Champlain Wing asks that the amount of funds remains confidential. On May 12, Emily Wall was a recipient of the TLC program, and was joined by mother Janine for the presentation in the Wing lounge. Twelve year-old Emily has Rett Syndrome. “Emily is one of the people we are supporting,” Lachambre said. “Funds are raised by individual donations and euchre parties.” Some money is also raised

through donations at Wednesday night bingos. Lachambre noted TLC receives no funds from the government. This program is intended to be a last resource for people who have not been able to secure funding from any other source. Lachambre thanks all who have contributed to the program, whether it be financially, with food, or prizes. “We try to keep everything local,” Lachambre added of business support. More information about the TLC program is available from Lachambre at 613-4335935.

Taurus, it’s all about your career goals this week. If you run your own company, use this time to scout for new business. If not, it’s time to seek a new position. It’s an exciting time for you, Gemini. You may decide to head to the airport and book a trip somewhere off the beaten path. Otherwise, a series of day trips could be fun. Cancer, you have finances on the mind, and with good reason and mostly out of necessity. That is because you’ve had a few expensive purchases that are tallying up. Leo, this is an enjoyable time because you are being pushed along by dreams and inspiration, opening up a score of possibilities to keep you busy and happy. Virgo, responsibilities and hard work have dominated your days, leaving little time for moments of pleasure. Things will even out soon enough.

Last week’s answers

Libra, you have built up some momentum on projects that are dear to you, but expect things to slow down a little bit now. You may need a final push of inspiration to finish the goal. Scorpio, if you have been pitching a new creative idea, you will likely get word this week about whether the idea will come to fruition and be successful. Sagittarius, for some reason the smooth course you have been on takes a sharp detour in the next few days. Either you can adjust to the change or be left behind.

Capricorn, there are only a few more opportunities to seek a pay increase. Muster the strength to go into a supervisor’s office and make your case known. Aquarius, if there is an important person you need to see or talk to, now is the time to do so. Don’t wait any longer because it will relate to some future activities. Pisces, a shift of the stars brings about remarkable change in your personal life. Positivity reigns for a few weeks.

Fun By The Numbers Like puzzles? Then you’ll love sudoku. This mind-bending puzzle will have you hooked from the moment you square off, so sharpen your pencil and put your sudoku savvy to the test! Here’s How It Works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

Aries, you have been working hard and this diligence is starting to pay off. This week you may experience a setback, but keep working hard and you’ll handle it.

Gary Legris helps balance this sphinx before it was raised to the front roof of Eady Insurance and Century 21 Eady Realty Incorporated Inc. Staff of the Raglan Street business helped raised two sphinxes May 11. Owner Morris Eady knows the Greeks looked at the mythical creatures as treacherous and malevolent. But he also knows the Egyptian sphinxes were seen as benevolent and protective, and that’s Eady’s perspective. “They’re just there to bring good luck to the office and to our customers,” said Eady.
