Taxes up 4.9% in Horton Township Lucy Hass lucy.hass@metroland.com

40 R0011463757

Steve Newman

Ever wonder where your tax dollars go? According to the 2012 budget approved by Horton council Tuesday night, for every residential dollar levied, 20 cents goes to schools, 34 cents to the County of Renfrew, 8 cents for Ontario Provincial Police services and 38 cents to run the municipality. The residential estimated tax rate impact per $100,000 assessment (including county and education) is $1,160.95, That represents a $54.29 hike over 2011, or a 4.9 per cent increase. Reaching that ďŹ nal number was a difďŹ cult process, given the amount of taxation over which the local council has absolutely no control. The OPP expense drew special attention with a note that, since 2007, police costs in Horton Township have increased by $79,098 from $189,852 to $268,950 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a 41.7 per cent increase in township budgets over the past six years.

Let the good times roll at skateboard park steve.newman@metroland.com

The Renfrew skateboard park is ofďŹ cially open, but the modest seven-piece setup is just the beginning. At least thatĘźs the anticipation of recreation director Barclay Mayhew and skateboarders and bikers attending the parkĘźs ribbon-cutting ceremony Monday evening at MaTe-Way Park. The free-to-use park is located within the boards of the outdoor hockey rink, next to the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre. There, boarders and bikers have a fun box, launch ramp, ledge with a ďŹ&#x201A;at bar, two banks and two quarter pipes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like it. That we have it (is the best thing),â&#x20AC;? said biker Caleb Coulas, 13. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We never had (this park)

before. ItĘźs great to have one.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;ItĘźs really nice. The features are nice,â&#x20AC;? said skateboarder Nolan Saumure, 16, whoĘźs been skating for six years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;ItĘźs going to get a lot of use. (It was) very badly (needed). ItĘźs been petitioned for, for many years.â&#x20AC;? Skateboarder John Donegan, 22, was also pleased, with a few small reservations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For a start, itĘźs good,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If they want to put any more in it, we should do a cement ďŹ&#x201A;oor (at the same or an adjoining location).â&#x20AC;? Recreation director Mayhew agrees more needs to be done, after spending $40,000 to buy initial features from Canadian Ramp Company, in Burlington. See Skateboard, Page 2

Use of the facility has been high since the features were put in place in late May, says Mayhew. “Theyʼre really happy itʼs here,” says Mayhew, looking around at the several park users Monday night. “We had a choice of putting a pad down with no equipment

or putting in equipment that everyone could use.” Parents and the OPP are also pleased with this new facility. “Weʼre happy itʼs now here. Itʼs going to be good for kids. Itʼs long overdue,” said Sgt. Terry McIntyre, who attended Mondayʼs ribbon-cutting ceremony. “It will help us with issues in town. It gives them (young-

sters and young adults) a place where they can be safe.” Biker Riley Bertrand, 11, is using the facility regularly, and his mom, Michelle, says the new park is certainly welcomed. DESERVING THANK-YOU

“The committee that developed this deserves a big thank-you,” she said.

“This has brought a lot of kids together. Theyʼve made friends, and itʼs kept them out of trouble and off the streets.” Renfrew resident Hannah MacMillan, who sits on the townʼs recreation committee, says she heard rumours about the park becoming a reality some five years ago, when she was graduating from high school. Seeing those rumours come to fruition is great, she

said. Jo-anne Caldwell, the recreation departmentʼs program co-ordinator, was recently told by a Renfrew adult that only six people would use the skating park. But that prediction doesnʼt appear to be coming true. The number of Renfrewarea youngsters and young adults using the park is estimated to be closer to 100.

Accusations of dangerous dog miss the mark, says Roblin Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

Concerns that a local Doberman is wild, uncontrolled and a danger to the community were expressed at the June 5 meeting of Horton council. But the accusations are unfounded, says River Road resident David Roblin. Roblin, who purchased the dog for his son Chris, now 17, through a Doberman Rescue program about six years ago, says any perceived aggressive behaviour is nothing but show. “As far as Iʼm concerned, Drakkoʼs an excellent dog,” said Roblin. “Thereʼs definitely no way (heʼs dangerous). Heʼs a lover, not a fighter,” he said, noting he hangs out with his friends and his sonʼs friends when they come over for social events. “He might put on a show in his yard, but itʼs all shows. Heʼs not vicious at all.” Roblin acknowledged Drakko sometimes runs off the property, but usually to the back of their yard, located just a few metres from the intersection of River Road and Castleford Road, to play with a few neighbouring dogs. Roblin said he also lets Drakko run loose when they visit Sand Point beach and thereʼs never been a problem with people there. “Heʼs an excellent dog. He means everything to my son and me.” There used to be an electric fence at the Roblin residence, but it was wrecked during a party this spring, and hasnʼt

2 The Renfrew Mercury EMC - Thursday, June 21, 2012

been repaired, said Roblin. Roblin, whoʼs a single dad with sole custody of his son, moved to the area about seven years ago from Constance Bay. He grew up in Deep River, where he still has family connections. His first few years in Horton Township, Roblin said there were no complaints from neighbours about Drakko. But he says that changed last year when neighbour Ron Wemmers began complaining. Roblin is suggesting local residents come and visit the dog in Roblinʼs presence, to see how calm and friendly Drakko really is. “If theyʼre scared of my

dog, all they have to say is, ʻHi, Drakko.ʼ Thatʼs it and he stops what heʼs doing.” Roblin admitted some neighbours might misinterpret some of Drakkoʼs behaviour. ‘IF THEY’RE SCARED OF MY DOG .... “

“He does a run and act and bark, then he starts wagging his tail. But you have to notice his tail because itʼs just a little stub … If somebody is scared of my dog … theyʼre welcome to come and meet him.” He laughs while recounting how a female resident across the street interacts with Drakko.

“Heʼll bark at her and sheʼll say, ʻIʼm not scared of you, laddy.ʼ” The Doberman was bought from a family in the Waterloo area. He was a bit too much to handle for the family that already had two more passive dogs, said Roblin. He also stressed that Drakko has received no training in aggressive behaviour. He knows some neighbours are concerned that the Roblinsʼ fencing, located beside an iron front-entrance gate, is flimsy and needs fixing. Some sections of the fencing are sometimes in place, and sometimes flat on the ground, as pointed out at the June 5

council meeting. “I am working on it. Iʼm a single person. I work late. I hope to get some time to make (the fencing) permanent.” More than a dozen residents attended the June 5 council meeting. A petition about the dog, entitled a petition for peace, quiet and safe living at the Castleford-River roads intersection, was also presented. It contained signatures from 21 people in 15 households. Roblin, who is temporarily without a cell phone, is difficult to contact. However, people can leave messages in his mailbox or with his next door neighbour.

The budget breakdown, by department, is transportation $1,394,533 (46 percent); general government $594,588 (19 per cent); environment $$291,586 (10 per cent); OPP $268,950 (nine per cent); recreation $216,164 (seven per cent); fire $135,957 (four per cent); protection $72,905 (two per cent); planning and building $59,710 (two per cent); and health services $29,560 (one per cent.) Treasurer Barrʼs presentation explained that 2012 is the final year of a four-year phase in of assessment, as directed by the province. “The average assessment increase for the County of Renfrew was 6.05 per cent with the residential class being 7.11 per cent. “This means that even without any budget increase, residential ratepayers will pick up a greater share of the tax burden,” she said. In closing, there was clear consensus this was the most difficult township budget ever, and thanks was extended to CAO/clerk Mackie McLaren, treasurer Barr, and the entire council and its various committees for holding with line without comprising services. There was also a big tip of the hat to the townshipʼs many dedicated volunteers “There isnʼt a penny to spare in this budget, McLaren told council. He suggested each account must continue to be followed individually, month by month. “We have to really watch it. Thatʼs our job for the rest of the year,” McLaren said. “This is the leanest budget Iʼve seen in all of my years,” added Barr, who has worked in municipal finance for 30 years.

Items outside of Horton Townshipʼs control have impacted this yearʼs budget to the tune of 7.2 per cent. Those items are: • a $20,900 decrease in provincial unconditional grants (1.5 per cent); • an additional six months of repayment to the townshipʼs debt of $15,528 (one per cent); • an increased Ontario Provincial Police cost of $54,289 (3.8 per cent); • an increase in OMERS premium of $9,838 (.5 per cent); and • adoption of the mandatory 2011 pay equity plan, an increase of $6,001 (.4 per cent). It was also stressed that some work completed by Horton council this year will actually be done without dipping into taxpayersʼ pockets. Council will use the balance of its federal Build Canada grant, combined with money from its lot development fund and gas tax reserves, for Pinnacle Road improvements. Parking lot improvements, a public address system for council chambers and GPS units for the roads department will all be funded by reserves. A pump building/washroom at the boat launch and work on McBride, Eady, Johnston and Fraser Roads will by funded by lot development charges.

Getting police costs under control is major issue Lucy Hass lucy.hass@metroland.com

How to tackle rising police costs is a major issue on the municipal agenda, says Admaston-Bromley Police Services Board chairman Mike Quilty. At councilĘźs June 7 regular meeting, Quilty noted that 45 per cent of the time at a recent two-day Ontario Association of Police Services Boards convention in Ottawa was spent addressing â&#x20AC;&#x153;how do we (municipal councils) get the cost of policing back under control.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Keep your eyes on that one because in 2014 the premier had promised that the OPP will be the highest-paid police service in the province of Ontario,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So we still have a few years to go to see what is going to happen across the province,â&#x20AC;? he said Police issues were front and centre as Quilty presented a ďŹ ve-page 2011 PSB yearend review. â&#x20AC;&#x153;IĘźm pleased our township experienced no signiďŹ cant rise in criminal activity,â&#x20AC;? Quilty reported. The number of trafďŹ c accidents also appear constant. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would say we have a very law-abiding community that is supported by a regular police presence, thanks to our contract,â&#x20AC;? Quilty told council. During the presentation Coun. Michael Donohue sought explanation of estimated, billed and actual costs, which were explained by Renfrew OPP Staff-Sgt. Colin Slight who also attended the meeting. Slight noted that the aver-

age number of calls for service in the township over the past ďŹ ve years was 400 to 440. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Based on that statistical analysis, the contract bureau determined that, using the weighted calls, they measure the level of service you require are the 1.6 ofďŹ cers you are paying for now,â&#x20AC;? he explained. The ďŹ nance portion of the report revealed that a renewed contract and reconciliation credit resulted in actual policing costs being $196,151 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; down from estimated policing costs originally set at $245,604. Estimated policing costs in Admaston-Bromley in 2012 have been set at $244,218. FOCUS ON SUICIDE PREVENTION

PSB chair Quilty underscored the OPPĘźs anti-suicide initiatives and said the board acknowledges the impact teen suicide is having in the community. He said the OPP has given high priority to school visits and thereĘźs an open-door policy at Opeongo High School where, during May and June, students can meet with an ofďŹ cer if they want to talk about anything. Reference was made to a suicide prevention presentation at St. JosephĘźs High School and plans for similar presentations in the fall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;None of us takes it (bullying) seriously enough. ItĘźs rough,â&#x20AC;? Mayor Briscoe commented. The detachment also plans to continue, at Opeongo High School, to deal proactively

with the issue of drug use. PRIORITIES

The report received by council also listed board priorities that include agricultural safety meetings, more patrol of rural roads and ATV trails, and steps to ensure proper use of police vehicles such as preventing excessive speed. The board will also meet with the Douglas Fire Department to discuss the issue of ďŹ reďŹ ghters being asked to assist with trafďŹ c control at motor vehicle accidents. There has been a suggestion that municipal roads crews might be better positioned to help the police, keeping ďŹ re crews available for their important and often timely work. The board would also like to bring in guest speakers for community groups on issues like fraud and computer crime, and providing information through brochures at the township ofďŹ ce. Vice-chair Brian Yuke and Mayor Raye-Anne Briscoe round out the local police services board. Briscoe noted she receives no remuneration, while Quilty and Yuke receive a base compensation of about $100. The cost to operate the board in 2011 was $1,252 under budget, at $7,947, In closing, Staff-Sgt. Slight thanked the municipality for its ongoing support and openness. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The relationship is in the communication,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have that open dialogue. I appreciate that open dialogue and I appreciate the support I get from this township.â&#x20AC;?

Township request for summer student assistance denied again Lucy Hass lucy.hass@metroland.com

Admaston-Bromley council learned May 29 that the township will not receive a grant under the Conservative federal governmentĘźs Canada Summer Jobs Initiative 2012 â&#x20AC;&#x153;since the demand for funding exceeded the budget available.â&#x20AC;? It isnĘźt the ďŹ rst time the small rural municipality has been denied funding for summer help. MEETING CHANGED

Admaston-Bromley council has cancelled its Thursday, June 21 regular council meeting and rescheduled for Monday, June 25 at the Stone Road municipal ofďŹ ce at 7:30 p.m. RECYCLING AG PLASTICS

A total 2,970 pounds of plastics was diverted from local landďŹ lls Saturday, May 26 at an agricultural-plastics recycling event at Renfrew County Recycling on Lisgar Avenue in Renfrew. Ten loads of plastic were received at the depot, eight of which came from AdmastonBromley farmers, one from Westmeath and one load of boat wrap from GeorgeĘźs Marina

in Eganville. The event came about after a ratepayer expressed concern about the amount of plastics ďŹ lling up landďŹ ll and polluting the air, soil and water when burned.

The Emerald Ash Borer is an invasive beetle from Asia that is destroying that species of Ash trees where it has arrived in Ontario, including Renfrew County. Admaston-Bromley has now thrown its support behind a County of Renfrew resolution requesting the Canadian Food Inspection Agency reduce the minimum size of the regulated area to one geographic township, hence restricting the movement of infected ash producs to a much smaller area.

History, heritage and culture are an important part of life in our ever-changing world. The reason for studying history and preserving the past is to understand it and make better decisions for the future. Frequently our local history is taken for granted but there are ways to appreciate the culture of our small community, and on a larger scale, our nation. As a community we should be proud of what our ancestors, industries and hard work. The foundations of the small communities just starting out when the settlers immigrated

to Canada has made our country and community the way it is today; a successful and flourishing society. The pride of the small community should be passed so that future generations can value their heritage and in turn pass it on and prevent it from being lost. It is quite sad when traditions are forgotten and once they are gone they are gone forever. Too often enough, as we go about our daily lives with our phones, computers and cars which we take for granted, all these things that our ancestors did not have.

“He was always forgetting names, which was normal,” say Wilson, “but forgetting things, like something he was supposed to pick up. And there were some driving issues, where he’d be somewhere with my mom and he’d go home without her.” R0011469002

Music by ‘PLN tunes’ from 4:00 to 5:30 p.m. Music by ‘Mixed Nuts’ begins at 6:30 p.m.

While people sometimes become forgetful as they age, in his father’s case, the symptoms were clear.

Wilson and his family confronted the situation by seeking out help. “We knew to get in touch with our doctor to get a referral for a gerontologist. We went through that waiting and talking with a couple

of different doctors just to try to get an actual diagnosis and find out if there was anything that could be done. “From there on, finding out what we can about Alzheimer’s disease through the Alzheimer Society.” Wilson credits the Alzheimer Society for providing information on the disease, available services, and what to expect. Wilson and his sister attended various seminars offered by the Alzheimer Society’s offices in Pembroke, Arnprior, and Ottawa. Wilson has since become involved with the Alzheimer Society. He was the second place winner in its Walk for Memories fundraising campaign for the last two years, and has arranged for speakers to address his community in order to spread awareness of the dementia services available in Ottawa and Renfrew County. “I guess the big thing is for people to realize that there is support and you don’t have to go through it alone,” he says. “Quite often, there are often only two family members or less

to deal with the load, and you end up with caregiver burnout.” Wilson has the following advice for those who are concerned about a family member experiencing memory loss: “Seek help as soon as you can. If the diagnosis is Alzheimer’s disease, there are medications that are available that can slow symptoms. And being involved with the Alzheimer Society makes you aware of what is available and what you can do.” John Wilson will be providing comments at the Alzheimer Society’s Annual General Meeting on June 26th at Hampton Inn Ottawa. Dr. Marcus Richards from University College London, UK, is the event’s featured speaker on memory loss and dementia with the focus on the aging brain and its consequences for health and function. Cost is $50 per person (includes a healthy lunch). To register or for more information, visit www.alzheimer.ca/ottawa or call 613-523-4004 in Ottawa or 1-888-411-2067 in Renfrew County.

20th Teddy Bear picnic a big hit Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

Not just the youngsters get a kick out of Renfrew Victoria Hospitalʼs annual Teddy Bear Picnic. Also dubbed B*A*S*H, or the Bear Army Surgical Hospital, the popular event reached the front lawn of the hospital for the 20th year Saturday morning. Youngsters and their stuffed animals of all shapes and sizes were the focus of the event that attracts hospital staff, other healthcare personnel, and volunteers from the community at large. A total of 190 children brought their stuffed animals to be treated. Several adults were also at

the picnic, including Daphney Dominy, whose teddy bear uses a mechanized arm to blow bubbles to passers-by. Liam Craig, 2, was among the youngsters who stood transfixed as Bubble Bear did his thing under a bright sunny sky. Dominyʼs daughter, Denise, who is a speech-language pathologist at the hospital, was also participating, as one of several hospital staff volunteers in attendance. Booths or departments included face painting, the thinkfirst.ca booth on cycling and helmet safety, the OPPʼs Ident-a-kid, and such departments as respiratory therapy, the smartie pharmacy, x-ray and the emergency depart-

ment. Daphney imported Bubble Bear, whoʼs sometimes called Cinnamon Bear, about 1986 when she was running a toy store, Loligo, in downtown Ottawa. Along the way she has retained her fascination for stuffed animals and the role they play in childrenʼs lives. “I think itʼs fabulous,” she says of the Teddy Bear Picnic. “Thereʼs a real community spirit. Itʼs lovely.” Barb Craig of White Lake brought son Liam and daughter Makenna for the festivities. “We come every year,” she said. “The kids love all the variety and they like that they can come to the doctor too.

Itʼs not scary.” Another mom, Amanda Gibbons of Renfrew, agreed. “Itʼs excellent. We come every year. Itʼs good for all ages,” she said. Nearby her daughter Sophie, 21 months, showed delight over seeing her Gee-Gee giraffe get special medical attention, as siblings Johnny, Ariel, and Chloe looked on with their own stuffed animals. Hospital recreationist Roxanne Nolan is so pleased with the ongoing positive reaction to the picnic. “Isnʼt it fantastic to see the hospital give back to such a supportive community in such a way?” said Nolan. “And, isnʼt it great to see the interaction between the physicians and staff of the picnic and the young bear owners. What a winning combination we have found. Every year it makes us happy to see the fun the teddy bear picnic brings to these young children.”

Literacy class TAMI project at Low Square June 29 Peter Clark peter.clark@metroland.com

The Mental Health Literacy Basic Skills Class is holding a fundraiser for the TAMI project (Teens Talking about Mental Illness) at Low Square on Friday, June 29. The theme of the day is Flush Away the Stigma and labels that so often are attached to mental illness. With that in mind, people are asked to drop by Low Square and purchase a toilet for $20, said literacy instructor Annette Kinslow. Or you can bring your own. Come down to Lowʼs square and sit on a throne, she added. “You can also advertise your business,” Kinslow said. She used day care as an example. Day care may

want to use a potty and put their business name on it. “We will be have a wishing toilet and people can give a goodwill donation. “We hope to have some activities planned that will be taking place besides the toilets,” Kinslow said. The event gets underway with a 9 a.m. decorating of toilets. It runs through to 7 p.m. The day is in partnership with schools to teach students about living with mental illness. “Itʼs a great way to show your support and advertise your business.” For more, call Annette or Elaine at 613-432-5835 or 613-433-9363. Most mental illnesses are treatable and with the right support, an individual can live a full and satisfying life.

IMPORTANT NOTICE

Campbell captures Regional Senior Star title for 2012 Peter Clark peter.clark@metroland.com

A booming voice singing an old favourite, Mockingbird Hill, made Renfrewʼs Jack Campbell Regional Senior Star for 2012 at the annual singing competition hosted by the Quail Creek Retirement Centre in conjunction with Seniors Month. The annual competition featuring five participants this year was held June 13 in the GEM Hall at Groves Park Lodge. The event was judged by Valley Heritage Radio morning man Andrew Cartwright, musician Mary Hass of Limited Edition, and Renfrew town councillor Jim Millar, who has performed professionally for more than 30 years. They had a tough decision to make before finally giving the edge to Campbell. Patricia Maloney finished second and Dolores Prussak of Golden Lake third. Calabogieʼs Hank Schaly and R.A. Cameron of Haley Station also endeared themselves to the audience during the competition. “Iʼve sang in 17 different churches in the area. Music passed on through the family,” Campbell said. “I thank the judges for their decision and the audience for their support.” “All five contestants are

Since beginning in 2006, over 3,000 performers, all over the age of 65 have auditioned across Canada. We are so pleased that todayʼs participants are a part of that wonderful momentum of talent and spirit. “Senior Star supports the theory that, like art and wine,

entertainers only get better with age,” McGregor added. “I think the secret is the life experiences that enhance both the performance and the connection with the audience, and, of course, the ability to take life in stride and know that the experience is almost as important as the outcome itself.” Bob Bouchard returned as stage manager while Gerry Blandford again video taped the event with the first and second place performances to be sent to Chartwell Senior Housing REITʼs head office for viewing. A panel of judges there will select 10 contestants to go on to Toronto for the 2012 National Senior Star title.

OPINION

Your Community Newspaper

EDITORIAL

Save yourself the sorrow of a summer warning not heeded Summer is here, stirring people of all ages with an urge to hit the great outdoors. But it can hit back. The excitement of summer can lead to recklessness, and far too many sunny holidays are spoiled by risky venture. One of those risky ventures is straying into dangerous properties, in particular, dams and hydroelectric stations. This week the Renfrew detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police issued a warning to stay safe and steer clear. Dams and hydroelectric stations operate all

year round, 24 hours a day. They are no place for any recreational activity during any season, says the OPP, who note that water levels may change frequently and quickly, often without warning. This can turn calm waters into deadly rapids within minutes. “The Ontario Provincial Police and the Ontario Power Generation remind everyone that it is best to stay completely away from dams and hydroelectric stations,” the release says. “Stay clear and stay safe. OPG facilities are clearly marked with red, white and yellow danger signs. There are also fences, buoys, booms

and barriers telling you to keep out. Stay a safe distance outside of warning signs, buoys, and barriers when fishing, boating or swimming.” Cycling would seem to be a relatively peaceful, safe pursuit, but it, too, holds risk for those who fail to pay attention, follow the rules of the road and wear the necessary safety gear. The Renfrew OPP also reminds cyclists that sidewalks are not meant for bikes. “As summer quickly approaches and an increase in bike traffic is seen, the OPP in Renfrew would like to remind everyone that the proper place for bicycles is on the roadway, not

the sidewalk,” this weekʼs police report says. Of particular concern is the downtown sidewalk on Raglan Street South in Renfrew between Hall Avenue and Munroe Avenue. “This is a busy pedestrian walkway and as customers exit retail locations there have been some near-collisions with bicyclists,” police say. “A bicycle is considered a vehicle and should always be driven on the road according to the rules of the road. For bicyclists who consider Raglan Street too busy for safe bicycle traffic, consider using a parallel street.” Good advice as we step into summer.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Cattle rustlers by another name To the editor: If you talk with some of the older cattle ranchers today they might tell you how, years ago, some of the laziest people, who thought the world owed them a favor, would steal part of their hard earned money by rustling their cattle. Cattle rustlers didnʼt go away. They just changed their name. Today we call them ʻprogressiveʼ-minded governments. Instead of hiding in the bush to steal your goods, they hide in government legislation. They may be members in provincial Liberal, NDP or ʻProgressiveʼ Conservative parties but they are the same lazy bunch that have figured out a way to steal part of our property and goods, build up debts and use their courts and enforcers to protect their agendas. What better example of rustlers do we have than the

Ontario Liberal government. Through user fees, booze and gambling royalties and taxes they give thousands of Public Service Employee Unions incredible salaries and benefits while the rest of society sweats all day on lower wages to pay for them. On pay day they jump on your pay cheque and rip most of it away just as easy as the cattle rustlers did 100 years ago. The union elitists whine for equality while they rob the poor. The Sunshine List of government employees who are paid over $100,000 is another good example. Most of our municipal tax costs go to pay for County and schooling salaries even though school enrollments are dropping every year. Why on earth are we paying education directors and CEOs over $170,000 per year? You wouldnʼt mind paying

all these people so much money if they were standing up for a good school curriculum or property rights but all we get are high-priced mouthpieces for the Toronto Liberals. I guess that tells you where all the Liberals in the county are. Donʼt expect anything to change either. The big money is simply too tempting for anyone to risk losing it by standing up for parents and landownersʼ rights. Our municipal councils wonʼt even discuss schooling costs and our County seems hell-bent in creating zoning restrictions and regulations on our private lands. Like true rustlers, the Liberal Dalton gang, along with the NDP, is adding an extra tax on the wealthy, who create jobs, while they give their Sunshine friends a free pass. The rustling continues.

Web Poll POLL RESULTS

THIS WEEK’S QUESTION

Should plastic garbage bags be banned across the province and country?

A) Yes. It’s time society took risks to the environment more seriously for the betterment of future generations.

B)

No. The change would likely results in higher costs that will ultimately be passed on to already-stressed consumers.

bags are the most common way people collect in-house garbage and a ban would cause an unnecessary burden on the average citizen.

Governments. They need to provide incentives to make healthy food and sports -exercise programs more affordable and save on health costs in the long term. It’s not easy for cash-strapped families when junk food is much cheaper than fresh vegetables and soda pop is less expensive than juice.

RVH auxiliary to hold meeting and tour June 25 Christine McNaughton RVH Auxiliary

The Renfrew Victoria Hospital Auxiliary held its 67th annual general meeting recently in the hospitalʼs Atrium Room. The RVH Auxiliary is a volunteer organization, and its mandate is to support the hospital by giving its time and energy to both working as volunteers in the hospital and in the auxiliary, and as the RVH major fundraiser. At the volunteer luncheon held earlier this year, the RVH Auxiliary presented the hospital with a cheque for $40,000, bringing the total of $130,000, the third instalment of a five-year commitment of $150,000. The Hospital Auxiliary was formed in 1945. Since the RVH Foundation was incorporated in l989, the hospital auxiliary has contributed $838.973.22 to the Renfrew Victoria Hospital. This is an outstanding amount for a small group to raise. We sincerely appreciate the won-

derful support that we receive from the community at our various events. We are grateful for the Communityʼs interest in Renfrew Victoria Hospital. Audrey Green was welcomed as the guest speaker and regaled the meeting with stories of her upbringing in the Renfrew area, and her escapades as a political icon. She was thanked for bringing the group laughter and tears as she shared her story. Fran Bonner, the outgoing president, thanked the dozens of volunteers; not just auxiliary members, but those who work in the hospital, in the gift shop, and other areas where they can be helpful. She related that more than twenty ventures had been undertaken during the past year, including the doll house lottery and raffle, the strawberry social and bake sale, the tourtierres and chili sauce fundraiser, Christmas house tour, to mention a few of our events, and assisting with the RVH annual teddy bearʼs picnic. Fran also highlighted the HELPP lottery as the auxiliaryʼs

biggest fundraiser. The auxiliaryʼs break open lottery tickets are available at Aikenheadʼs Drug Store. She also noted the auxiliaryʼs annual presentation of three bursaries of $1,000.00 each to high school graduates, furthering their education in the health care field. This is our Renfrew Victoria Hospital Auxiliary at work, for the hospital and for the community. Under the leadership of the new president, Mae Craig, we are looking forward to another successful year. The Auxiliary cordially invites anyone who is interested in joining this group of energetic volunteers to come to the June meeting to be held in the RVH Cafeteria Atrium at 2 p.m. on June 25. A small reception and a tour of the hospital will be available to those interested in joining the auxiliary in the important work that they do on behalf of RVH. For further information please call Barb Symington at 613-432-5300.

A 22-year-old Renfrew resident has been charged after several complaints of excessive noise and repeated warnings by police. On June 16 at about 10 p.m. police attended a residence on Oak Crescent in Renfrew to investigate the noise and a trespassing complaint. The accused had attended a neighbourʼs property and disturbed a flower bed and persistently played very loud music. The person was charged with engaging in a prohibited activity contrary to the Trespass to Property Act, and Excessive Noise contrary to town bylaw. IMPAIRED DRIVER

Thursday, June 14 at midnight OPP officers were conducting RIDE spot checks in Renfrew at the intersection of Lochiel St and Bridge Streets. A pickup truck was stopped and the driver was arrested for impaired driving. While searching the male a quantity of marijuana was located and seized. After refusing to provide samples of his breath, a 25-yearold Pembroke man was charged with impaired driving, refusing to provide a breath sample and possession of marijuana. INDECENT ACT

One male is facing charges

after police received a complaint that a male intentionally drove beside another vehicle while committing an indecent act. The complainant advised they were driving on Hwy. 17 in passing lanes when they were approached by another vehicle. The vehicle drove beside them for some time and when the driver looked over they saw the male driver masturbating. The suspect looked at the complainant and continued on. The complainant slowed down to escape and contacted the police. A 35-year-old Cobden man was charged with committing an indecent act in public. MISCHIEF

A building foundation was sprayed with graffiti on Mansel Hill Road in Whitewater Region. There are no suspects. • Several youths were cautioned after a bike was damaged at RCI last week. • A male was cautioned after a vehicle was vandalized in the daytime at Wal-Mart. • Two staff-parking signs were removed and placed into an unlocked car between 11:30 p.m. and 2 a.m. at St. Josephʼs High School last week. Four males were caught on video and the investigation is continuing.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;IĘźve always loved textiles and ďŹ bre. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I started to cut up perfectly good fabric and sew it back together when my children were young as a summer project at the cottage. It was shortly thereafter that a perfectly good hobby went very wrong. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I appreciate the artistry of traditional methods and design in quilting and borrow from those time-honoured traditions in my own work, but most rewarding for me is ďŹ nding new form and technique, using colour and texture in innovative ways. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I quilt because I love fabric and textile, the hand, colour, texture and new combinations of those elements. I draw inspiration from everything, but appreciate the simplicity in design and line of oriental art and Arts and Craft era. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Often I listen to CBC radio; Saturday night blues show, Laugh out Loud, some Shelagh Rogers and Vinyl Cafe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My I-pod has a variety of music, new, old and otherwise. Seeing and interacting with other artists and their work, sharing their enthusiasm for new projects and ideas and experiencing new places. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Depending on the day when IĘźm working my space looks like a bomb went off. I need to have things out where I can see them to think and play and incubate ideas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When IĘźm energized, I go from one project to the next while ideas are fresh. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have been commissioned by a Canadian company out of B.C. that wholesales fabric across the country to quilt and fabric stores, to develop patterns using their new line of batiks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;FRAGS ďŹ bre graphic series of patterns, as illustrated in the photos, is my line of new designs that will be available in stores in the near future. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The fabrics used in these sample pieces are new Canadian batiks. My latest accomplishment is being accepted by FRAGS Patterns as a designer. FRAGS Patterns will be available at various quilting and fabric stores across Canada or over the Internet at valeriemillerquiltedcovers.com â&#x20AC;&#x153;My work is available at the following galleries and shows or on the Internet; Bittersweet Gallery Burnstown; Valley ArtisanĘźs Co-op Deep River, Muskoka Arts and Crafts Summer Show Bracebridge; Haliburton Art and Craft Festival Haliburton; The MakerĘźs Hand Show, Picton; and 2012 Signatures Show, Ottawa Convention Centre. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I will have a selection of table runners and mats, pillows, small trivets and will be introducing my new line of CSM FRAGS Patterns at Art in the Park.â&#x20AC;?

Schoolhouse play celebrates rural teachers and schools As the school year winds down, Stone Fence Theatre, dedicated to “putting the Ottawa Valley onstage,” is preparing to put on a play that celebrates rural education. Schoolhouse, by Leanna Brodie, opened July 17 at the Eganville Community Centre, with 10 performances, including eight with old-fashioned Ottawa Valley supper theatre, between then and Oct. 27. With one-room schoolhouses such an important part of the Countyʼs recent past, the company expects this play, set in Cavan County, south of Peterborough, will resonate with local audiences. Schoolhouse is a play about a great teacher and how important schools are. The cast, in addition to returning Stone Fence Theatre veterans such as Ambrose Mullin and Andy Adach, features students from schools all over Renfrew County, including Killaloe Public School, Palmer Rapids Public School, Rockwood Public School, Opeongo High School, Fellowes High School, Madawaska Valley District High School, and St. Josephʼs Catholic High School. The leads in the show are both Stone Fence Theatre

In addition to performing in shows with their schools and elsewhere in the community Christine has been in Stone Fence Productions since 2007, and Josh since 2010. In Schoolhouse, Christine plays Miss Linton, a young

schoolteacher in her first year of teaching in a one-room school in a community far from home. Josh plays Ewart, a good kid with a troubled history who the community turns against because of his “training school” background. Miss Linton becomes Ewartʼs defender, but it isnʼt easy. The play is not a musical, but itʼs full of music and fun. Before it begins, Peter Brown

and Ish Theilheimer will perform a set of ragtime music by Scott Joplin and other composers, including The Entertainer, Black and White Rag, and Dill Pickles. The March Kids of Pembroke – Emma and Will – return to Stone Fence Theatre to serve another another helping of fiddling and stepdancing this year, and both appearing in the cast, along with their mother, Mary Fraser.

Christine Helferty plays the lead role of Miss Linton, who endures trial by fire in a one-room school. Director Chantal Elie Sernoskie, in her second year with Stone Fence, has drawn upon many contacts she fostered in 2011 when she directed A Midsummer Nightʼs Dream for Street Lights Theatre in Pembroke, including actors Jon Sullivan of Killaloe, Jacob Harron of Barryʼs Bay, and stage manager Leya Gervais of Chapeau. Because the play is so supportive of public eduction

and teachers, two of Renfrew Countyʼs teachersʼ federations, the Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario (ETFO) and the Ontario Secondary School Teachers (OSSTF) are supporting the production. “Most of us can recall teachers who changed our lives,” says Stone Fence Theatre producer Theilheimer. “We are thankful to the teachers Schoolhouse celebrates.”

McNab Days celebrate heritage and community identity Members of the media were treated to a sneak peek at some of the events that will unfold during this yearʼs McNab Days. And the consensus is that it promises to be a kiltlifting good time. A flotilla, fly-in, Tartan run, heritage trail excursion and many more events will ensure there is something to satisfy everyoneʼs interests. The 10day festival, from June 22 to July 1, celebrates the townshipʼs history, natural heritage and rural roots. It kick-starts with a multicultural Calling of the Clans. Torches will be held high at the annual event this Friday, at 7 p.m., on the Waba Cottage Museum grounds. Billed as a way for newer residents to formally join the community, the ancient rite of the calling starts as dusk falls at 9 p.m. “Family heads, municipal leaders, organization and business representatives from all backgrounds are welcome to raise a torch, proclaim their history, and re-commit to the values of family, community, and clan so prized in McNab-Braeside,” said organizer Heather Lang. Long-time community activist Jim Ferguson lit a torch for media at the museum in the afternoon, explaining that in the old country the calling often signalled a rally to war. He joked that McNab Daysʼ calling will be far from omi-

just before noon. About 40 boats are expected to participate this year, including newer models manned by anyone who wants to participate. “As much as we regret saying goodbye to our Alligator, we are excitedly anticipating the Beaver flying in at about 2 p.m. for the grand opening of the Braeside Beach, next door to Red Pine Bay,” Lang said. She explained that the de Havelin float plane is a feature of the Vintage Wings collection, and will be accompanied by modern ultralights and parachute landings from the Five-Mile High Parachute Club. (Next year will see a Float Plane Fly-in Breakfast.) “Also on hand (for the Riverdrive and beach opening) will be artistsʼ displays, displays by organizers, a quilt display, wood carving, rope making, fiddlers and bluegrass bands,” Lang said. “The day ends with a pilgrimage to the Braeside United Church at 4:30 p.m., where there will be a barbecue, craft sale and entertainment.” Some of that entertainment and demonstrations were on hand in Bristol, at Peter and Barb Haughtonʼs waterfront property, during the media tour. The enthusiastic musicians played songs that shared stories of life on the river back in the day. Everyone was in their best

period costumes, and when the voyageurs pushed off in their massive canoe, all those on hand appeared transported back in time for at least a split second. A Tartan Run and Sunday Stretch-Family Day takes place on June 24. From ancient rites to modern-day fitness, Lang explained, the first annual 5-km Tartan Run is set to begin at 9 a.m. (registration starts at 8 a.m.) with 100 runners and walkers decked out in red-haired “Jimmy Tams,” provided in exchange for the $20 registration fee. The course starts at Usborne Street, moves to Sandy Hook and Malloch Road, then back to Red Pine Bay. Food will be available afterward. Also on June 24 will be a Tai Chi demo at 10 a.m. and canoe and kayak races in the afternoon. Then, to the next weekend, on Saturday, June 30, the Heritage Trails will take centre stage, along with a Heritage Tour of Burnstownʼs historic homes and gardens from 12:30 to 5 p.m., complete with a strawberry social for $25. At the Poole Street and Milton Stewart entrances to the trail, story-tellers will relate stories of the past from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. For a detailed breakdown of events, see mcnabbraeside. comʼs calendar of events.

nous. He encouraged folks from all backgrounds to participate. However, first up on the June 7 media tour was a trip across the Ottawa to Bristol, Que., where the historic “Alligator warping tug” was resting up for Braeside Riverdrive this Saturday, June 23. Alligator boats were a type of amphibious vehicle used in the forestry industry throughout the region and Maritime provinces of Canada and the northern United States from the mid-19th century to the beginning of the 20th century. The boats were so named because of their ability to travel between lakes by pulling themselves with a winch across land. They towed log booms across lakes and then portaged themselves using a winch to the next body of water. The rugged, steampowered tugs were one of the pioneers in the mechanization of the forest industry in North America. The W.D. Stalker tug was pieced together from the remnants of three others found in the area. It is the only operational Alligator in the world, and will return to its maker in Simcoe, Ont., after McNab Days. The riverdrive Saturday will include a flotilla of heritage river craft making its way from Norway Bay, Que., starting about 9 a.m. to at Red Pine Bay in Braeside for landing

Public education ‘increasingly two-tier’: critics The third and final installment in a series that looks at school fundraising By Kristen Calis, Jessica Cunha and Rosie-Ann Grover

T

he best way to end the Ontario school systemʼs reliance on fundraising is to pour more money into public education, parents, teachers and critics say. “We are getting increasingly (to be) a two-tiered education system,” says NDP education critic Peter Tabuns. “That speaks to the need for adequate funding of the education system so parents donʼt feel compelled to raise money.” Fundraising Fever, a Metroland Special Report, shows that concerns about overuse of fundraising – and the disparities it creates – are growing province-wide. Potential solutions also include a proposal by the advocacy group People for Education, which wants a provincial Equity in Education grant created to reduce inequities triggered by fundraising. School boards are pushing for an evaluation of provincial education funding to determine whether the current model is fair to all students. “The pressure to fundraise will only grow as boards try to meet the austerity measures of provincial governments,” says Catherine Fife, president of the Ontario Public School Boardsʼ Association. “We canʼt go to our parent councils or school councils and keep asking for money.” Thereʼs no question money is tight. The McGuinty government is starting consultations this fall to cut $10 million from school board administration budgets by 2013-14. Progressive Conservative education critic Lisa MacLeod says there is a lot of waste in the system and boards donʼt always spend their funding appropriately. “Theyʼll claim they have no money, but are they managing the money effectively?” she asks. Some groups, including Social Planning Toronto, believe fundraising should be banned outright, except for raising dollars for external charities. “Iʼd rather not have it,” says Chris Ellis, who sits on four school councils in Ottawa. “Iʼd like for schools to not be able to raise funds for their own use so then parents in those affluent areas might become involved and speak up for greater funding for the education system.” The Coalition Against Public School Inequality suggests a cap on school fundraising. A percentage of each schoolʼs profits above and beyond the limit would go into an equalization fund to help disadvantaged schools. But the Ontario Federation of Home and School Associations says a limit would be too restrictive. “We actually donʼt want somebody to say you have to stop here. Itʼs up to the parents to decide how much they want to do or whether theyʼve had enough,” says Lee Gow-

Tannis Toohey

The purchase of new playground equipment is a common fundraising goal for parents. ers, president of the group. Raising taxes would be a controversial solution, but “thatʼs how you address inequity, unpopularly through taxes,” says Annie Kidder, executive director of People for Education. “At some point, we have to bite the bullet and go, ʻThatʼs what taxes pay for.ʼ If we want our kids to have books in their libraries, we have to pay taxes.” Critics say the province should outline exactly what materials, activities and programs should be available – at no cost to parents – in all Ontario schools. Currently, itʼs OK to raise funds for library books, gym equipment and musical instruments. “You need to start with the policy and the vision and laying out concretely what should be there in schools,” says Kidder. “Then you start talking about how you fund it to ensure itʼs fair and equitable.” There is also interest in a boardwide mentorship program where successful fundraising schools partner with those that need a hand, helping to reduce the gap in funds raised. “To me, thatʼs how successful fundraising can be done, really sharing the best practices,” says parent Roxanne Horwitz, who sits on the St. Bernadette Catholic School council in Ajax Education foundations across the province continue to play a role, helping to reduce inequities in opportunity between well-off and disadvantaged schools. There is no severe pressure on schools to raise funds for things like field trips because many foundations will cover those costs.

14 The Renfrew Mercury EMC - Thursday, June 21, 2012

“Having a central education foundation completely changes the landscape for children in a city,” says Jane Fulton, executive director of the Education Foundation of Ottawa. “We make sure that no student is left out.” Small businesses and large corporations continue to work to bridge the gap by providing donations and incentive programs. “Thatʼs what we are counting on, businesses in the community,” says Luce Paradis, principal at Assumption Catholic School in Ottawa. The school is located in a low-income area and doesnʼt usually host fundraisers. Without corporate donations, it wouldnʼt be able to reach its goal of $50,000 for a new play structure. “We have to outsource a little bit.” The Campbellʼs Labels For Education program, for example, invites schools to collect labels from Campbellʼs products, such as soup cans and Goldfish crackers, and redeem them for educational resources from books to gym equipment. A number of other companies, such as Chapters, Boston Pizza and McDonaldʼs, host special events that encourage parents to purchase their products and then give a portion of sales back to local schools. Others, such as the Elementary Teachersʼ Federation of Ontario, believe businesses donʼt belong in public schools. “Itʼs a tempting road because itʼs a quick fix to the funding situation,” says Kawartha Pine Ridge ETFO president David Wing. “Children are already bombarded enough with commercial messages.”

Fundraising dollars are often used to invest in new technology.

Prizes for top apples NEARLY A COINCIDENCE: At the time of Mrs. Eadyʼs funeral a year ago, it was noted for the first time in the history of Renfrew two funerals had crossed one another. The friends of the late Albert Schulfer coming down main street to the R.C. cemetery met those of Mrs. Eady while going southwards to the cemetery on Thomson Hill. That was on a Sunday afternoon. Nearly coincident was the case on Sunday afternoon last, when many of those returning from Mr. Eadyʼs funeral drove back to join the funeral procession conveying the remains of Miss Hannah Gibbons to the Admaston cemetery. THE APPLE SHOW AT THE FAIR: Director in charge A.A. Wright is already looking after details of the apple display for the coming Renfrew Fair; to make it greater than has been. At his solicitation Mr. A. Barnet has agreed to give two special prizes of $5 each for the best display of six boxes of Wealthys and six boxes of McIntosh Reds. In addition Mr. Wm. Jamieson has agreed to buy all the apples that may be exhibited at the fair in boxes, and will also buy a very considerable quantity of the honey that may be exhibited. Further there will be some other special prizes for box displays, which will be noted in the regular prize list.

From Mozart to meaning of life at St. Joseph’s High School coffee house Victoria Slight

Jaguar Journal

On the evening of Friday, June 15, many of the talented students at Saint Josephʼs High School performed at the annual Spring Coffee House. Entertainers performed for a full house with a wide variety of acts that ranged from the classical music of Mozart and Schumann to three original works performed by Molly Helferty, Heather Lepine

and Gary Hawthorn. Even teacher, Mr. Jeff Retty, got in on the fun with a reading titled The Meaning of Life. Other acts included the SJHS Choir and the famed Blues Guys which included a couple of numbers with guest performer and founder of the Blues Guys, Mr. Pat Watters. It was an evening full of entertainment and tasty snacks. Thank you to the many

people who made this event possible, especially Mr. Dave Rowat for co-ordinating the event and to Ms. Clouthierʼs Hospitality and Tourism class for providing the tasty treats. While it is classes as usual this week for the Grade 8 students at St. Josephʼs High School, we are just a few days away from the completion of exams and the end of the school year for the remaining grades.

While it means the end of a school year for most of the students, it means the end of high school for many of the Grade 12 students. Whether it is onto university, college or out into the workforce, it is a new beginning for these students and we wish them all the best of luck with their future endeavors. The last day of classes for the Grade 8 students will be June 27.

June 27 will also be graduation day for those Grade 12 students who have met the Ontario graduate expectations and who are leaving SJHS. The evening will begin with a mass at St Francis Xavier Church at 5 p.m. The celebrant for the graduation mass will be Fr. Ryan Holly. Immediately following mass, graduates and their families will make their way to the SJHS gymnasium for

the graduation ceremonies. It is certain to be an exciting evening. The Grade 12 students will not be the only ones leaving the school at the of this week. Ms. Baillie Carleton who has taught math at SJHS for many years will be retiring. We wish only the best of everything for Ms. Carleton as she moves onto whatever adventures are in store for her.

My View From Island View

Rummage Sales

The Renfrew and District Christian School graduates, from left, are Shaughn Reid, Nicholas Wouda, Brianna Roberts, Levi Huyer, Emily Vander Ploeg and Jordan Vandersleen.

Congratulations, RDCS graduates Jane Wouda Renfrew and District Christian School

On Monday, June 18, the Renfrew and District Christian School celebrated the graduation of its Grade 8 students in style as piper Justin Reid lead the procession of graduates into the sanctuary of the Calvary Pentecostal Church. The six graduates were Levi Huyer, Shaughn

Reid, Brianna Roberts, Emily Vander Ploeg, Jordan Vandersleen, and Nicholas Wouda. Proud family, friends, and teachers looked on as the grads received their diplomas and expressed their thanks in their graduate speeches. We wish these students Godʼs blessings as they continue their education in high school.

So I was giving some thought to rummage sales. We are hosting a big rummage sale at Island View Retirement Suites this Saturday, June 23rd starting at 9am. I discovered that the term garage sale or rummage sale can also be referred to as a yard sale, tag sale, lawn sale, attic sale, moving sale or junk sale. Typically, individuals use these types of sales to get rid of unwanted items and make room for more modern pieces of furniture. I know this is how I made space for a new couch several years ago. I have also used the proverbial “garage sale” to make up for a short fall in the money department. Other popular motivations for a garage sale are spring and fall cleaning and moving. Some people think that there is a difference between a garage sale and a rummage sale. The difference being that the rummage sales have higher quality “stuff” then the garage sales but I have found in my travels that there is really no difference between the two. I have had some pretty good luck at rummage sales in the past. From decorative accessories for the garden to finding a paddle for my very old food processor at the Galetta Rummage Sale, these events can be fantastic places

to go hunting for bargains beyond your wildest imagination. I have also found very cool wine glasses, wasp catchers and a great dry mop for getting the dust bunnies out from underneath beds. You can pretty much be certain the staples of rummage sales will always be there, old toys, books, clothing and board games. One of the ladies that reside with us at Island View was telling me she found this very unique, beautiful and odd ring 30 years ago at a rummage sale. This exquisite piece of jewellery just caught her eye and she could not pass up the bargain. Pat shared with me that she paid $2.00 for this treasure and couldn’t help taking the ring in to be appraised. To her utter delight she discovered that this wonderful treasure was commissioned by Henny Youngman, a famous comedian in New York City in the 1940’s for a very special lady friend. Gary believes that rummage sales are just an excuse to buy other peoples junk but Eleanor’s collection of stuff squirreled away deep in her basement could fund a trip

When I go to rummage sales, I have to admit I am on a mission. I usually have a couple of items in mind that I am looking to acquire. Right now I want to find a small market umbrella for my cast iron patio set and wooden “Adirondack” chairs for my deck. Let the hunt begin! If you are not doing anything too exciting on Saturday morning, pop into Island View. We are located at 30 Jack Crescent. The sale begins at 9am. The money we raise will go towards new shelving for the resident’s library and you never know, your treasure may just be waiting for you.

Losing a mate may terminate a nesting

birds, smaller than adults, feeding chicks in the nest. Thank you, Kelly. TREE SWALLOWS

Margaret Forde sent us this email: We live just east of east of Foresters Fall on the Kerr Line. Tree swallows are all around our corner and are nesting in our bluebird boxes. One pair was unable to find a nest box so they have built a nest on the seat of my canoe which is stored upside down and about shoulder height. I have a summer feeding program and have a variety of birds at the feeders and see many others in the surrounding fields. I will continue to watch for the species you mentioned as missing from our area so this summer. Thank you, Margaret. Terry Pierce writes that the two pairs of tree swallows nesting near their home are doing very well. There is no evidence that there are chicks in the nests but the adults are very active. Banning any mishaps they should have a successful nesting season.

DAWN CHORUS

It is an extraordinary time to be up and about but if you want to hear one of natureʼs great choruses just before sun rise is the time to hear one. Most species will rise and sing before they gather food. Insect eaters rise before dawn when insects are easy to see and hear, followed by the seed eaters that need more light to gather seeds and finally the hole nesters which are late risers because the sunlight does not reach them until later.

HUMMERS, CARDINALS

Tracey Markie has been the hostess for both hummers and cardinals this spring. She finds that a thinner mixture of sugar water (three parts water and one part sugar) is best when the flowers are in full bloom and when there are very dry conditions. The cardinals are not as vocal as they have been for the past two months but will begin again if the pair decides to raise another brood.

Upland sandpipers have been seen along Bonnechere Road by Marlene Hanneman and Ron and Sybil Ferguson. This species is frequently seen sitting on top of a fence post in open country. They have an unusual whistle whip-wheeee-you often heard during the mating season. Upland sandpipers have a very small head, a long, thin neck and large dark eyes. They are the same size as a blue jay. Upperparts of their plumage are mottled with buff

Painted turtle gets some sunshine.

When the male birds begin to sing again you will know that a mated pair is starting a second or third brood. The male must claim his territory whether it is the old one or a new one where he thinks food and shelter are better. Brown thrashers, robins, chickadees, red-eyed vireos, goldfinches and red-winged blackbirds are presently singing for a second and third time. Enjoy your birding.

I have received several emails during the past few weeks with concerns about turtles and butterflies. Snapping, painted, Blandingʼs, stink pot and wood are the most common turtles in our area. The female will lay her eggs during May or June usually in soft sand or loam. Egg numbers vary from four to ten. Incubation time for snapping turtle eggs is up to 120 days but the normal incubation time for all turtle eggs is between 70 and 90 days. If the eggs are laid in August or September the young will over-winter in the nest and hatch in the spring. Predators such as skunks and raccoons destroy over 90 percent of turtle eggs. You can protect the eggs by putting a heavy screen or cover of wood over the nest. The young can also use some help getting to water when they emerge from the ground.

Kelly Kilby sent us this note. “I had a pair of eastern bluebirds nesting in our new bird box for the first time this spring. Unfortunately something (I believe it was a cat), killed the female. The male is flying around the nest box, landing on the roof and sitting on the fence close by. He does not go inside the nest box. Would the female have laid he eggs already? If not what will happen now”? Kelly: When the female dies the male does not know how to incubate the eggs but if the eggs have hatched he will continue to feed the young. When available, siblings from a previous brood would help feed the new young. Once the young fledge the male will continue to brood them and feed them until they are able to fend for themselves. He would then seek a new mate. Had the male been killed the female would continue the nesting, feeding the young until they fledge. After the young fledge the female would continue to brood and feed them until they were able to fend for themselves. She would then search for a new mate and very possibly raise another brood or two. Helping raise later broods by siblings is common among bluebirds, cedar waxwings and spotted sandpipers. It is interesting to watch young

Bobsledz topped Geo-Dredging 16-9. Kelsey Jessup earned the win, and also had four hits. Riley Agnew added a home run.

Jenny Dick had four hits for Geo-Dredging. Deslaurier Custom Cabinets cut the Pizzeria Leftovers 17-8. Paul Martin got the win, buoyed by Trevor Lacroixʼ home run. Brett Gilchrist took the loss. Bluewave Energy outlasted Barkerʼs Collision Centre 19-17 behind pitcher Keith Gourleyʼs home run and four hits. Kyle Rawley also homered. Pitcher Mike McMahon had a homer and triple among five hits for Barkerʼs. Stephane Lapensee hit two home runs and Chad Barker one. See SLO PITCH, Page 32

In conjunction with the Renfrew Rush Basketball Association, STARS offers an exciting summer basketball camp in Renfrew, instructor Vicki Wilson said. She and brother Jason Wilson, teachers at RCI, run the camp. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our teaching philosophy is to emphasize the components of fun, fair play, and positive attitudes while the participant learns to play the

great game of basketball,â&#x20AC;? Wilson said. STARS creates an environment where the talents of each participant ďŹ&#x201A;ourish and the atmosphere is both challenging and fun. All participants receive a camp T-shirt. Registration deadline is June 29. Cost is $100. Cheques can be made out to Vicki Wilson. A late fee of $5 will be charged after June 29. Call Wilson at 613-622-1200 for more information. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is more important to be a good person than to be a good basketball player,â&#x20AC;? is the STARS motto.

Gord Gaddess was named the schoolĘźs top male athlete, while Mikaela Barnes received the R.W. Donaldson Trophy as the RaidersĘź best female athlete.

Cooper Brown is the recipient of the Frank Lynch Award. The hardware goes to the RCI student or group of students who, as a result of an outstanding athletic achievement, usually beyond the level of inter-school competitions, brings recognition and distinction to themselves and the school. Josh Thero and John Pettigrew are co-winners of the junior male athlete of the year honour. ItĘźs the second time TheroĘźs name will appear on the trophy. He also won it last year.

Lob ball candlelighters Organizers are thrilled with the outcome of a June 9 lob ball tournament in Arnprior that raised $2,726.93 for Candlelighters, a not-for-profit volunteer organization that provides comfort and resources to young cancer patients being treated in Eastern Ontario. Organizer Karla Belton said it was an honour to have in attendance Miss Teen Eastern Ontario World 2012 Hillary MacMillan, Miss Teen Ontario East 2012 Grace Stewart and Paige Dillabough, a young cancer survivor who benefitted from Candlelighters’ support. Joining Belton, the girls and organizers are representatives from each of the 12 teams that participated. Among those gathered at home plate are Madison Ohlman, Christopher Nych, Jeff Needham, Danielle Miller, Lindsey McCourt, Jamie Jones, Don Belton, Paige Dillabough, Zach English, Ryan Cuthill and Shawn Edwards.

In loving memory of my husband, father, pop who left us too soon June 30, 2011. God saw you getting tired, And a cure was not to be, So he put his arms around you, And whispered â&#x20AC;&#x153;Come to Meâ&#x20AC;?, With tearful eyes we watched you, And saw you pass away, And although we love you dearly, We could not make you stay, A golden heart stopped beating, Hard working hands at rest, God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best.
