Two-vehicle crash on Highway 60 claims life STEVE NEWMAN

DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOUR KIDS ARE?

steve.newman@metroland.com

After a rash of mischiefs and thefts from vehicles, the Renfrew OPP is enforcing a midnight curfew for kids under 16 years of age.

A two-vehicle collision about 6:45 p.m. Monday left one man dead and two other men injured, one seriously. Adam Donald McLeod, 24, of Hyndford, died at the scene after his westbound Honda Civic collided head-on with a truck. The passenger in the car, Kevin Kilby, 19, of Douglas, suffered

serious, but non-life-threatening, injuries. Tuesday, Paul Kilby said his son remained in care at the Civic campus of the Ottawa Hospital. A 25-year-old Eganville-area driver of an eastbound Ford pickup truck was also taken to hospital, but later released. During the head-on collision, his truck burst into flames and exploded, according to the Douglas Fire Department.

Traffic was rerouted well into the night, as firefighters from the Douglas, Bonnechere Valley and North Algona Wilberforce were on the accident scene or redirecting traffic. Traffic was detoured away from Highway 60 along such connecting roads as Rice Line, Dillabough Road and County Road 8. The crash occurred a little more than 2.5 kilometres southeast of Kellys Corners, within

a few hundred metres of where a Golden Lake driver rolled her vehicle nine days earlier. A post-mortem, of McLeod, was scheduled for Tuesday at the Ottawa Hospital. The investigation continues. The investigating officer is Const. Mark Yarmel. Anyone with information about the collision is asked to call the Renfrew OPP detachment at 613-432-3211.

Greater Madawaska

Roads department at your service PETER CLARK peter.clark@metroland.com

Greater Madawaska Township roads superintendent Jamie Doering says the public can forward any roads complaints directly to him. Questionned by Coun. Brian Hunt about the protocol for calls, Doering said calls should be directed to him, and any problem will be looked into. He said public works relies on the general public when it comes to monitoring the condition of township roads. “We can’t always check all the roads,” Doering said. “It is mandatory we go out (grade the roads) every 30 days, and more if it is warranted,” he added. “But we’ll call the person back if we see grad-

ing is not necessary.” Doering and GM Mayor Peter Emon cut some trees which had fallen across a road during last month’s wind storm. “I’d like to budget for 2012 to implement an on-call system,” Emon said. The mayor suggests having one person from public works on-call with a second serving as a back-up. If the problem is more serious, such as cutting trees or repairing a culvert, the second man would be called in. In other township business at the Aug. 10 regular meeting, incoming treasurer Allison Holtzhauer was introduced to council. Holtzhauer joined the Greater Madawaska Township municipal staff Aug. 2.

DETOUR AT CONSTANT CREEK BRIDGE Ken Culhane of Carp, who has a summer home at Ferguson Lake, is reflected in the rear view mirror as he makes his way back from the blocked access to the Constant Creek bridge reconstruction site during a regular summer stroll. The Ferguson Lake Road in Greater Madawaska is closed at the bridge and rehabilitation will continue until Aug. 21. Detours are in effect via Mount St. Patrick Road, Highway 60 and County Road 34, Whelan Road. Work on rehabilitation of the Calabogie Bridge will meanwhile continue until late September 2011. Traffic over the bridge is restricted to a single lane, controlled with traffic signals, which the county advises may result in restrictions to vehicles and equipment with wide loads. Motorists are advised to expect delays. Mercury photo by Lucy Hass

Causeway repairs on hold PETER CLARK peter.clark@metroland.com

Greater Madawaska council has been planning for some time to repair the causeway at Calabogie Lake. Coun. Karin Lehnhardt would like to see the municipality embark on a longterm project to fix up the causeway, and “see what we could do over 10 to 15 years. “First thing, I’d like to see who owns the causeway, not who we think owns it,” Lehnhardt added. Mayor Peter Emon feels confident of the municipality’s ownership. “I believe we purchased the causeway

a number of years ago,” Emon said. “I’m positive Greater Madawaska owns the causeway. We’ll do a title search.” It was noted former Greater Madawaska councillor John Pratt had been in contact with the Department of National Defence during his time with council, and DND was going to employ a number of personnel to drop a bridge on the causeway. Emon informed council this work can’t get a go-ahead until the province looks into it, so it won’t be starting any time this year. Work is scheduled to proceed for a bridge on the Madawaska Nordic Trail system. That work will be done before the year is out.

Moloks to be handled at home site PETER CLARK, STEVE NEWMAN peter.clark@metroland.com

A problem with Greater Madawaska waste collected in Moloks, or partly underground containers for organic material, appears to be under control. Greater Madawaska’s waste from the Norway Lake Transfer Station’s moloks was being delivered to the Ottawa Valley Waste Recovery Centre near Pembroke. However, the centre was refusing some material because it included plastic bags that were jamming the centre’s augers. Because of the plastic bags, much of the material in the Moloks has had to be rediverted to Black Donald’s landfill site this spring and summer. During a recent public works meeting in Greater Madawaska, it was noted that

from a distance it can not be determined if a bag dropped off for the Moloks is a plain white plastic bag or a biodegradable plastic bag used for organics. Public works committee members said there is no way waste site attendants could monitor each bag being deposited unless a special person was assigned. Therefore, council and staff have determined the material for the Moloks will still be dropped off at the Norway Lake and Griffith landfill sites, then transferred by municipal employees to Black Donald. “We’re going to do it ourselves ... and turn it over for use as mulch on municipal property,” CAO Angela Yolkowskie told The Mercury. “Ultimately, it’s going to save us because we won’t have to pay for the transportation of the material (to the centre).”

David Gogo and his band had some of the audience up and dancing as they play out into the natural amphitheatre at the bottom of the Calabogie Peaks ski hill.

West Coast blues-rock guitarist David Gogo attracted a large crowd (estimated by organizers to be close to 4,000) Saturday evening at the inaugural Calabogie Blues and Ribfest at Calabogie Peaks. Photos by John Carter

Bluesfest attracts 8,000 music, rib fans to the Peaks JOHN CARTER john.carter@metroland.com

About 8,000 blues music and rib fans visited Calabogie Peaks on the weekend to attend what organizers say will definitely become an annual event. Representatives from both the Peaks and Ottawa radio station 101.9 DAWG FM were delighted by the positive response to the inaugural Class Axe Guitars Calabogie Peaks Blues and Ribfest. “It exceeded expectations,” said DAWG FM sales manager Jeff McFayden. “We’re so happy with the response … we’re already planning for next year.” McFayden, who admitted he was hesitant at first about the proposal, said the Peaks turned out to be a “fantastic” partner in the venture and the base of the ski hill was “beautiful

location” for the bluesfest. “There’s not a better place anyway.” “We’re all very pleased with the outcome … 8,000 is a great turnout for a first ever event,” said Calabogie Peaks resort president Paul Murphy. He said the response proves there is a “real appetite” for specialized musical festivals in this area. “We’re just glad we found this one.” The fans seemed to appreciate the setting and that the music was 100 per cent blues, said McFayden. Many of the performers who played at the threeday festival raved about being able to play up into the mountain, he added. He estimated Friday evening’s crowd at about 1,000, Saturday’s at 5,000 and Sunday’s about 2,000. Considering the bluesfest was pulled together in only four months, the response

was excellent, he said. “We were astounded it went off so well.” “We’re thrilled … it was the perfect spot,” said Bob Besharah of Kemptville’s Class Axe Guitars. “The Murphys were great to work with and DAWG took it over the top.” Murphy noted the event attracted a large contingent from West Ottawa and the Upper Ottawa Valley, as well as many from the Kingston-Belleville area. When thanking the audience for coming Saturday, Murphy asked how many were first-timers to Calabogie. About a third put up their hands, he said, which “is a great sign” the bluesfest is providing valuable publicity for the Calabogie area and the Peaks. “We’re very encouraged.” The bluesfest is part of the Peaks’ strategy to ensure it becomes a thriving four-season resort. “Liz

and I are looking for ways to bring animation to the property in the summer time,” said Murphy. “This proved to be a perfect fit. We had a great working partnership (with DAWG FM).” He said the resort is working on its expanding its event expertise with such happenings as the Snowcross race, Ride the Valley and now Bluesfest, the biggest of them all. While Ride the Valley supported the Soldier On charity, the bluesfest raised money for three charities, including the doctor recruitment campaign that’s important for the Calabogie area, said Murphy. Class Axe Guitars added $1,200 to the donation by raffling off a guitar, won by Kim Cruise of Renfrew, he noted. The other beneficiaries were the Cystic Fibrosis Foun-

dation and the Blues in the Schools program. Murphy said he is proud of the event’s family orientation and was pleased with the congenial atmosphere. “The crowd was in a great mood,” he said. “Everyone was relaxed and having a good time.” The ability to camp on the mountain and swim at the beach was popular with many of those who were there for all three days, he noted. McFayden said Saturday’s fireworks were a major highlight. As the last chord of the final act (Guitar Explosion with Steve Strongman and Paul Deslauriers) faded, the deejay asked the crowd to turn around and look up the mountain. Almost instantly “an amazing show” began with fireworks shooting into the night sky 150 feet above

the audience from the ski hill’s first elevation. “It was rather spectacular,” said a proud Murphy. “The timing was perfect.” Fortunately for bluesfest-goers, nature’s fireworks avoided the site. McFayden said the thunder storm that hit Renfrew that evening looked as if it would douse the site, but at the last moment it pushed north. The only rain during the bluesfest was a few drops Sunday. As for the ribs, the Kentucky Smokehouse, all the way from Kentucky, won the overall people’s choice award as well as best sauce award. The Crazy Canucks earned the judges’ award for best ribs. The line-up of bands included David Gogo, whose album tops the DAWG FM charts.

Development and works director Mike Asselin explains a feature of the provincial solar-energy program. The Town of Renfrew plans to build solar panels on four buildings to generate substantial revenue for the municipality.

Isolara chosen to process solar-energy applications STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com

The Town of Renfrew has chosen an Ottawa-based firm to process application forms to the Ontario Power Authority. Of the three companies who made proposals, development and works director Mike Asselin admitted at town council Monday night that it was a tough decision, before the senior management team chose Isolara. He said factors in the decision included experience, understanding of the application process, work plans and financial proposals. Asselin suggested Isolara’s experience with processing similar applications was a deciding factor. “We want the application to be bulletproof,” said Asselin, knowing there’s little room for mistakes since the town wants the applications filed before October 2011. If financial projections are realized, the installation of solar panels on the roofs of four municipal buildings − the municipal hall, Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre, water treatment plant and Renfrew Innovation Centre − will result in profits of about $3 million. The Innovation Centre houses the Renfrew Industrial Commission and a handful of local businesses. Town council has already authorized senior management staff to spend up to $20,000 per system (per building) for reports and other fees to support each application. This money will come from

Potential profits are pegged at $3 million from the four 20-year contracts, but first they must be approved by the Ontario Power Authority.

Renfrew’s unallocated reserves. Although profits are estimated at $3 million from the four 20year contracts, first they must be approved by the Ontario Power Authority. A similar contract was recently signed by Calabogie MotorSports Park with OPA. Construction for each building would have to be completed and commissioned within 12 months of approval. Work by Isolara will include confirmation of the buildings’ electrical capabilities, an overall financial analysis and completion of the applications to the OPA. “I think the town wants to present itself as progressive …” said Asselin of the multi-building solar project. Renfrew isn’t the only municipality or business looking at the earnings potential, though. He says 70,000 businesses or groups have subscribed to the program.

Guettel tribute, exhibit continues through August Bittersweet Gallery in Burnstown is hosting a special tribute to Clark Guettel, a glassblower from Killaloe who died this past January.

Bittersweet Gallery, remembers 1971 when a group of 11 students, including Gill, attended Sheridan College’s school of design. They received an Opportunities for Youth grant from the federal government to teach crafts to rural schools in eastern Ontario. See ‘Clark’, Page 52.

Mapbook reveals special eastern Ontario outdoor areas What started as a living room enterprise has grown into a cross-country venture that both documents and celebrates the great outdoors. The widely-popular Backroad Mapbook series embraces Eastern Ontario with a comprehensive new 144-page guide. Discover the 200 backcountry campsites of Bon Echo Provincial Park or the surreal paddling of the Barron Canyon in Algonquin Park. Dive into single-track riding through the Larose Forest, take on the mighty Rideau Trail or create your own adventure in the public crown land areas identified. “Fishermen, families who enjoy camping, hikers and hunters, people who like canoeing or cruising backroads – we appeal to all of them,” said company cofounder Russell Mussio. Backroad Mapbooks feature up-to-date logging and industrial roads, trail systems and a

wide range of recreational features that are not found on other maps. Add in everything from fishing hotspots to paddling routes, from wilderness campsites to road side parks, from hiking and OHV riding trail systems to topographic land features, and you will see why this series has grown to become Canada’s best-selling outdoor recreation series. The Backroad Mapbook series uses local researchers and writers to ensure regional information is accurate and noteworthy. The new Eastern Ontario title expands on work done by Jason Marleau, owner of Algonquin Bound Outfitters, and Carmine Minutillo, now a principal with Holy Family Catholic School in Kingston, both of whom were instrumental in the development of this book.

40th anniversary recognition for Renfrew Printing STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com

Bill McAdam was still a teacher at Renfrew Collegiate Institute when he decided to open his own business. The business’s doors opened on May 1, 1971, and 40 years later the company is still going strong. Staff members are owner Bill, wife Deija, son John and daughter Colleen who were each on hand when Renfrew town councillor Andrew Evans recently presented them with a certificate to highlight the landmark anniversary. In referring to their special anniver-

sary, the certificate also wishes the company continued success in the Town of Renfrew. Over the years, there have been numerous changes in technology, says owner Bill. He notes one of the biggest restrictions with earlier technology was the lack of memory in the typesetting system. Much of that has changed as Renfrew Printing continues to print business cards and forms, letterhead, envelopes, books and carbon-less forms. One of the most satisfying components of the business, says Bill, is how it has built up “a lot of customers who keep coming back year after year.”

Editorial EDITORIAL

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Help a victim

Special education cuts unacceptable

A

ll too often we hear of our neighbours being victimized, either through domestic violence, a tragic accident, fire or theft. There are many ways we can offer assistance in these instances, but those who volunteer their time to become specially trained to handle these situations are a godsend. Victim Services of Renfrew County is comprised of volunteers who are trained in dealing with tragic circumstances, and who offer help to those who are hurt and in need of assistance. Victim Services of Renfrew County is there when you need support. These volunteers are business people, councillors, parents, university or college students, moms and dads, and even grandparents. They are people who have a little bit of time to help someone who may not have anyone else to turn to. They are the nameless faces in the turmoil of life’s most tragic circumstances. They offer a helping hand, a shoulder to cry on, a ride to the hospital, or security to a child who has just lost a parent. Many volunteers come from the human services professions or they have been victims of crime themselves and now want to give back. Volunteers and staff provide assistance to emergency personnel and community services to meet the needs of individuals; to help lessen the trauma of the experience they have endured and to help people cope with the impact of victimization. If it was your family coping with the loss of a child; your grandmother who was attacked during a vicious break-in and burglary; or your neighbours burned out from a fire; would you be there? Crisis assistance is provided by staff and by volunteers who are carefully selected, screened and specially trained to work in their community. Every week, at the close of its report to the community, the Renfrew detachment of the OPP thanks these important volunteers. As they note, “The service is based on the concept of ‘neighbour helping neighbour.’ If you are interested in becoming a volunteer with VCARS, please call 613-649-2852 or 1-877-568-5730 for more information. Victim Services of Renfrew County is committed to treating individuals with courtesy, compassion, dignity and respect. Do you have what it takes?

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Where have all the trees gone? To the editor: An open letter to the Town of Renfrew: I recently paid a visit to my hometown and was disappointed to see that a large majority of the beautiful trees that I remember growing up have either died or been cut down and not replanted. It was very disheartening to see this. Why has the town not come up with an incentive program for the replacement of the trees? Now, you walk down a street in Renfrew and see no trees, in some cases for

Ottawa River heritage designation important

several blocks at a time. On streets that were once lined with beautiful mature trees, they are all gone. I am sure that some kind of program can be put in place for the people of the Town of Renfrew to replace trees on their properties with some help from the town itself. I hope on my next visit to see some action has been taken. Gerry Rouble Toronto

To the editor: Re: ‘Supportive elder is gone, but not his love of the river’ in the Aug. 11 Mercury. No matter whether it’s the Ottawa or Madawaska, these rivers were the lifeline of the Valley. Some people would sooner turn their backs on our heritage, and without these

To the editor: This is in response to the article in the July 14 edition of The Renfrew Mercury on the Renfrew County Catholic School Board’s 2011-2012 budget, and most importantly, their commitment to special education. In the article, it reads that the Catholic board is allocating $8.1 million for special education programming. The chair of the board states that this programming is important for nurturing “the giftedness, self worth and potential” of every student in their board. At the same time that this is happening, the Renfrew County District School Board is making huge cuts in its special education department, and has eliminated almost half of their educational assistants. My son will go from having had full-time, one-on-one support for the last three years, to sharing an EA with two other children, and will even have periods of time in the day when he is left completely unassisted. And it is not just my son, but nearly every special education student that will be affected. When cuts occur in special education, it often goes unnoticed by the majority of the public, because most children aren’t special needs children. But for those of us parents that do have special need kids, this is yet another battle. We have to fight enough for the rights of our children, why should we have to fight for their right to an equal education? Where is the commitment that the Catholic board is showing their kids? By making these cuts, the Renfrew County District School Board is basically telling us that, because our kids have special needs, they don’t deserve the same quality of education as their peers in “regular” programming. This might be okay with the public school board, but it certainly isn’t acceptable to me.

Rail not vital

To the editor: People are claiming that the continuation of the railway is necessary for local prosperity and growth, but that is untrue. For decades now, the trains have been running through towns like Renfrew but do not stop. Many of the companies that use rail service have long had to truck their products to cities to be loaded onto trains that pass back through their own towns on the way to distant places. Passenger trains can only be accessed in the cities, as well. Except for spurs to specific companies and regions, the railway companies have long since abandoned the smaller centres and left the companies, warehouses, and stations that once loaded and unloaded goods and passengers at towns like Renfrew high and dry. Now, there is no longer a railway infrastructure in our towns: Homes have been allowed to be built next to the tracks, where warehouses

and station houses and industry belong: The writing has been on the wall a very long time, but no one read it. While it is true that rail is environmentally preferable to trucks because trains use less fossil fuels overall, the cost of reorganizing the railway system to stop at every small town along the routes to pick up and drop off products and passengers would be enormous. But no one, least of all the rail companies, wants to pay. And rail has always been subsidized by our taxes. Be thankful the railways are finally being officially abandoned. Homeowners living near the former tracks will no longer have to put up with the vibration and noise of unduly long trains that enriched only a handful of rail company executives and shareholders. Yours truly, Allison Azulay Renfrew

Run for Terry To the editor: With the resounding success of last year’s 30th anniversary of the Terry Fox Run (TFR), The Renfrew Terry Fox Run Committee is eager to build on last year’s fantastic results. Isn’t it amazing that we exceeded our goal of 30 teams for the 30th year. With this year’s run just around the corner, we’re looking forward to seeing last year’s teams, as well as many new teams out on Sunday, Sept. 18. The participation and fundraising efforts in the 2010 TFR resulted in an incredible total of $32,549 – a 115 per cent increase over the previous year. So now is the time to grab your friends, your family and your neighbours and register a team to walk, run, bicycle or rollerblade either the 10-km or the 5-km route. Any team members that are cancer survivors can receive a special Terry’s

Team shirt (free of charge) by registering online at terryfoxrun.org. You can register your team online and even collect pledges online... it’s just that easy! Just think of how inspiring it will be to have teams of people at the start line of this wonderful event... working together to outrun cancer! To obtain further information on how to register your team, please contact either Tanya Campbell at 613-433-9380 (bcampbell22@ sympatico.ca) or Sheena Pilgrim at 613-433-8210 (spilgrim4@gmail.com). We will send you a package that will include stepby-step information on the registration process, pledge sheets, as well links as to how you can collect pledges online. Thank you, Tanya Campbell and Sheena Pilgrim Renfrew

The foresight of saving local rail lines To the editor: Canadian Pacific Railway recently began the process of taking up their rails that run through the Ottawa Valley. They started removing rails between Renfrew and Pembroke and intend to continue with this action this year and next, until all rails have been removed between Smiths Falls and Mattawa. This section will never be replaced. Such is not the case for the local Canadian National rail line. Fortunately for the Ottawa Valley including the Pontiac, Renfrew County and the City of Ottawa, a dedicated group of volunteers, comprised of business leaders, municipal representatives from Pembroke, Whitewater, Laurentian Valley, Portage-du-Fort, Litchfield, Clarendon, Campbell’s Bay, Bristol, and Ottawa, have been working on acquiring the

CN line known as the Beachburg sub. This group, incorporated as Transport Pontiac-Renfrew (TPR), has a very detailed business plan and has recruited experienced and highly qualified staff committed to joining the business. TPR has enjoyed the co-operation of CN since the beginning of this process. TPR is incorporated as a notfor-profit business and plans to begin freight operation in early 2012, followed by tourism rail service and commuter service soon thereafter. The line travels from Ottawa, through the Pontiac, into Renfrew County and on to Pembroke. It is also hoped that the link to Mattawa can be preserved, in order to maintain Canada’s cross country line and to preserve national security through the vital service to base Petawawa. Right now, CP plans to remove this link next year

and few objections have been voiced despite there being considerable shipper demand for freight service on the line. It is important to recognize the vision of people who have had the foresight to save this vital part of our heritage and the very valid tool for economic development and employment in the area. It is interesting to note, as well, that rail transport is an important and key feature for a green future for our children and grandchildren. If interested in more information regarding TPR, visit our website at www.transportpontiac-renfrew.ca, or phone 1-800-665-5217. Harry Gow and Terry Gibeau Co-chairs Transport Pontiac-Renfrew

Disappointed with partisan editorial To the editor: Re: the editorial of Thursday, Aug. 11. I am very disappointed in this editorial because, unlike most of your editorials, it lacks both clarity and balance. I can only assume that it was written under duress, or worse, was dictated verbatim. So, to educate whoever is hiding behind your position, let me point out a few facts about politics in Quebec. To begin with, the issue of separatism is not currently on the radar when

it comes to support for a party. Until the recent “orange wave” swept over Quebec, the Parti Quebecois and the Bloc were, in many areas, the only choices for those who embraced the social democratic ethos. In fact, there were many Englishspeaking federalists who voted for the Parti for this reason. It is not unreasonable to assume that someone who has had a significant impact in the labour movement would do likewise, since that movement has traditionally supported social programs, not only for its members but for all

working people. It is, however, harder to explain the reason our current minister of transport maintained his membership in the Bloc Quebecois for eight years, contributing generously to the party coffers, as it is unlikely that it was the social-democratic program that attracted him! I do hope that the Renfrew Mercury is not moving into blatant partisanship. Lois A. Airth Renfrew

HEATING THINGS UP FOR HOSPICE Hot dogs and hamburgers were flying off the grill in front of the LCBO July 30 as a group of family and friends of the late Bernice Blimkie raised $1,050 for Hospice Renfrew. Pictured, from left, are Valerie Blimkie, Tonya Riopelle, Jenn Scheunaman, Bob Blimkie, Liam Dey and Erin McGonigal. The fundraiser was organized to honour Bob’s mother’s memory, who was cared for at hospice and passed away in May. McGonigal says the family got to see first hand how well patients are cared for at Hospice, and how important the service is to the community. “This is just our little way of giving back,” she adds.

Just a reminder that our next Rising Star Series Horse Show clinic is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 20. Start time at 8:30 a.m. at JCS Stables just outside of Arnprior. The clinician for the clinic is Kitty Bowland of Ottawa, a certified FEI Level 2 hunter/jumper judge. Warmup for beginner and novice division opens at 7:30. All other warm-ups are held throughout the day as supervised warm-ups. Each division will have its own warm-up prior to the start of the division. We did this style of warm-up at the first clinic and seemed to work extremely well. The other change that we have initiated is splitting up the novice horse/rider division into two divisions: novice horse and novice rider. It won’t add to the length of the show clinic but it gives the opportunity for the novice riders not too feel so intimidated competing against the more experienced riders riding novice horses. Feel free to log onto our website to see where you stand in points. If you are in disagreement with how I split up the novice division, please feel free to contact me. There will be additional ribbons as well as an extra trophy at the final show clinic on Saturday, Sept. 17. The updated schedule and prize list is available on our website. Please feel free to contact me or visit our website at www.JCSstables.com. Hoping to see everyone at our second horse show clinic.

McNab-Braeside

Suffering from Gallstones?

From anywhere to anyone, including Braeside? They have to know that we’re not giving up the post office fight, says McNab-Braeside mayor SHERRY HAAIMA sherry.haaima@metroland.com

McNab-Braeside council has not forgotten its pledge to keep full postal services running out of Braeside. Following the March 2011 temporary closure of the former post office in Braeside, Canada Post Corporation officials set up community boxes in the village, a step they said was a temporary fix until Sept. 30 while a postmaster was found. So far, council, which had offered to provide a location for the post office, has learned of no movement on the issue, explained Mayor Mary Campbell at the Aug.

2 meeting. “They have to know that we’re not giving up the fight,” said Campbell, who received council’s approval to draft a letter to Canada Post to find out what’s being done. “I don’t want to see our residents have to go to some little box in Arnprior to get their mail each day,” said Campbell. She referenced correspondence received from Sandra Wilson, vice-president of the Canadian Postmasters and Assistants Association (CPAA), a group that has been lobbying Canada Post to re-open the Braeside office.

Wilson explained the Braeside office is now a “grade” office, meaning Canada Post must provide the premises but that the corporation would like to downgrade it to a “group” post office, which requires the postmaster to provide the premises. A downgrade would mean cost savings for Canada Post and lower wages for the postmaster. There is also a part-time position in the office, something Wilson says Canada Post does not want to recognize and that would count for more points in the evaluation the organization says the corporation must un-

dertake. “CPC says ‘From anywhere to anyone’, what about the residents of McNab-Braeside?” says Wilson in her letter. It seems the position of postmaster in rural McNabBraeside is not all that desirable for candidates, with compensation at one rate based on the number of boxes and another rate for the number of rural route addresses. Because the township includes rural route numbers that fall under both Arnprior and Renfrew, there is a disadvantage that Campbell surmised goes beyond just the local municipality.

Karst identification a priority for MNR SHERRY HAAIMA

sherry.haaima@metroland.com

Determining just how much Karst topography is in McNab-Braeside is high on the priority list for the Ministry of Natural Resources, but officials can’t say exactly when the reports will be in. MNR Pembroke district manager Rick Watchorn told council Tuesday his office is working closely with the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs to define the areas of Karst or potential Karst. The township is attempting to come up with a policy to deal with development in the Karst area that requires special environmental protections. The issue is important to the township, as preliminary provincial studies indicate there is large Karst area stretch along the Braeside Ridge and as far as Stevenson Drive. Karst is a distinctive topography in which the landscape is largely shaped by the dissolving action of water on

carbonate bedrock. The process results in unusual surface and subsurface features ranging from sinkholes, vertical shafts, disappearing streams, and springs, to complex underground drainage systems and caves. Coun. Brad McIlquham said at one time there were maps indicating “quite extensive” Karst or potential Karst in the municipality. He wondered about how the township could get more complete information and how to fund these efforts. “Are there are any plans for you people to try and get some money available from either the federal government or provincial government to do some more studies to find out if there’s actually Karst in our area?” asked McIlquham. Watchorn said his office would be available to help the township access possible funding sources, but first the studies needed to be refined. “We’re working with folks from OMAFRA. These folks have some expertise that we’ve been looking for

at MNR. I know they’re working diligently on that.” Watchorn said the issue is high on the priority list. “It’s not something that’s sitting on somebody’s desk. It’s top of mind,” he said. “That’ll give us a much better idea of scale and what we’re looking for,” said Watchorn. Refining the information and gathering it in one place will help determine if current practices being utilized on or near Karst are suitable, said Watchorn. While Karst areas normally can’t be developed without expensive studies to be paid by the property-owner, County planner Bruce Howarth has suggested the township approve a compromise policy. It would allow developers to avoid some of the extra studies if there is a metre of natural overburden on the property.

A community clean-up day will be held at the soon-to-be reopened Braeside beach Aug. 20, starting at 10 a.m. “We want to get as many people as we can to come out and clean up the beach and get rid of all the debris that

collects along the river,” said Coun. Brad McIlquham. In other recent council business, after seeking clarification that the Nature Conservancy of Canada was actually asking for a $2,000 donation from the township, McNab-Braeside has opted to say no. The NCC owns the Gillies Grove

natural historic park that is located mainly in Arnprior but does occupy some land in the township. “Given that the Grove property is publicly owned by Nature Conservancy and is not a municipal recreation facility council does not feel it appropriate to fund them taxpayer dollars,” said Mayor Mary Campbell.

T. Williams Plumbing & Heating is back to defend its Ma-Te-Way Mixed Slo Pitch League title after topping Scheel Communications Aug. 10 to claim the best-of-five series three games to one. Matt Stewart earned all three pitching wins by 9-8, 14-7 and 12-6 margins and slugged two home runs in the series. Landin Miller lofted three round-trippers and added four hits in the series clincher. Frank Visneskie also homered while Sean O’Reilly had a three-hit game. Chris Phillips handled pitching chores for Scheel, and posted an 11-8 win in game three. Kyle Thomlison and Jon Lowe had two home runs, and Walker Mullen one deep shot. Mac’s Milk and Deslaurier Custom Cabinets have split a pair of doubleheaders, and are going the full five games in their semifinal. Tracy Legris notched the pitching wins as Mac’s won 12-10 and 6-5. Paul Martin was on the mound for Deslaurier’s 16-8 and 12-4 victories. See SLO PITCH, Page xx

Beefcake headlines Renfrew Horn silent, but memories will roll on wrestling card at the Wing PETER CLARK

Brutus ‘The Barber’ Beefcake will be the top name on the marquis when Great North Wrestling comes to the AFAC Wing in Renfrew on Saturday, Oct. 8. Others on the card include Hannibal and The Sheik. Jeremy Prophet, Roy Sniper The 7 Darko, Sexy Eddy, ‘The Working Man’ Bruzer and Soa Amin will also be climbing into the ring. Drummondville’s Thirsty Domino highlights the women who will be competing in the squared-circle. Brutus ‘the Barber’ Beefcake might best be known for winning the World Wrestling Entertainment tag team titles with

Greg Valentine, and teaming up with Hulk Hogan. Beefcake was one of the WWE’s top wrestlers in the 1980s. On Ottawa native, Hannibal has battled Abdullah The Butcher on numerous occasions, and pinned the Butcher in his retirement match. Gold advance ringside tickets are $20, while general admission seats go for $15. General admission tickets can also be purchased in a group of four for $40. Tickets are now available at the Wing, or at www.ticketweb. ca. More information is available at www.greatnorthwrestling.com.

It’s a sound the people of Renfrew were accustomed to several times daily for more than 100 years, but have heard seldom in recent times, and will never hear again in a few short weeks. Last week, townsfolk were actually shocked when they heard the sound of a train’s horn on its way through town. The only trains nowadays arrive empty, then return a few days later full of salvaged rails, as the tearing up of the Smiths Falls to Mattawa Canadian Pacific Rail line has begun. If only these rails could talk, they’d have a few stories to tell. The railway has been an institution. The Chicago Cubs have won two World Series since the

PETER’S PUTTERINGS tracks were first put down, and they haven’t won baseball’s top prize since 1908. I don’t think the Cubs ever travelled through this neck of the woods, but the Renfrew Millionaires and hockey fans of that era sure did. The train they took to road games in Ottawa became known as the Timberwolf Special. Often, over the years, Renfrew minor hockey teams would return home from tournaments up north by train to a heroes welcome, whether they brought the championship hardware

back with them, or not. Our ball hockey team once took the train to the annual North Bay ball hockey tournament in the early 1980s. We all remember parts of that trip. And who can forget the Lumber Baron Festival handcar races in the 1990s? I remember them well. Like the local train era of today, that competition soon disbanded after they broke the handcar. * * * Nikolai Khabibulin is second among active NHL goaltenders (20th overall) with 316 wins.

Riopelle and Falcon soar at Renfrew Golf Club First-time title winners during weekend championships STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com

Visit us Online at yourottawaregion.com

Justin Riopelle has just finished three years of golf management studies at Niagara College, but his focus is on excelling at playing the game. The 22-year-old Renfrew resident, who plans to turn pro next year (to improve his teaching and playing opportunities), captured his first-ever open men’s Renfrew Golf Club championship on Sunday. He couldn’t duplicate the eagle three scored on the final hole Saturday. But when defending champion Stephen Dowd of Arnprior missed his own birdie putt Sunday afternoon, Riopelle had the title in the bag. Riopelle then rolled in a short putt for birdie to finish with a one-under 70. That left him at even-par 142 for two days, and a three-stroke margin of victory. “We could finally smile, for the first time in two days,” said Riopelle, referring to himself and Jesse, his brother and caddie. Jesse, who caddies for Justin’s more important events, developed the mantra of never too high, never too low, to help keep his sibling’s emotions in check. And it seemed to work. Having finished second at the championship several years ago, Justin said the title was something missing from his accomplishments on the links. It’s also why he never took a close look at the championship trophy. Call it superstition, but that close look didn’t come until Sunday, when he noticed winners’ names from 1929 and 1930 on the trophy. “I finally got to hold the trophy,” said the 2011 champion. “It’s pretty nice. I was still kind of in shock and awe.” Dwight Reinhart, probably the club’s top golfer, was out of the province, but Riopelle didn’t take anything forgranted, especially since he hadn’t played a lot of golf this summer. One of Riopelle’s biggest shots all weekend was his last on Saturday. He had an eagle putt on the par-five after hitting a driver and 186-yard six-iron. The putt was downhill and fast, but he made it, sending him off to the practice range to work with his driver, which he’d been

spraying left and right all day. “I knew that putt was big,” said Riopelle. “I didn’t know (at the time) where I was in the field, but I knew I could take some momentum from it.” And he did. Golfers usually need to putt well to win, but Riopelle wasn’t hot in that regard. “All weekend my putting wasn’t great,” he said. “It was mediocre to average, but I hit a lot of greens and had a lot of two-putts.” The only time the lead threatened to get away from him was on the seventh hole Sunday, when he double-bogeyed. But he remained focused and recovered with back-to-back birdies, including a 30-footer on the ninth green. Dowd emerged second overall, at 145, after rounds of 74 and 71.

OVGA junior match play title to Brown PETER CLARK

Cooper Brown is starting to build up a good trophy case. The 16-year-old Dragonfly Golf Links junior captured the Ottawa Valley Golf Association junior match play championship in the 14 to 18 age group last week. It was a test of endurance as Brown first had to qualify. The top 16 of 70 entrants advanced through an 18-hole tournament played at Ride-

au View Country Club in Manotick Aug. 8. Brown left nothing to chance. He fired a 2-over par 74, including a birdie on the par-5 final hole to win by one shot. The 16 remaining competitors then moved on to match play at the Ottawa Hunt & Golf Club. Brown turned away his first three opponents to reach the final, and then capped his run to the crown in convincing enough fashion. He wrapped up the

Youth push for concrete skate park in Renfrew PETER CLARK peter.clark@metroland.com

Jessica Smith of the Renfrew Recreation Department is spearheading a committee endeavouring to raise funds for a skatepark in Renfrew. Smith attended the recreation committee meeting Aug. 11 to bring them up to speed. She visited schools to form the committee which has received overwhelming response, she said. They held a meeting in July, discussed locations, features, fundraising ideas, viewed a few designs done by St. Joseph’s High School student Nolan Saumure, and watched a short slide show provided by the Madoc Skatepark Group. “The (Renfrew) group was very firm on the desire to have a concrete skatepark instead of a modular one,” Smith told the committee. During research, she found many facilities that did not build concrete later wished they had done so after repairs and wear and tear. The group has already held a youth dance and yard sale, and has many more ideas for fundraisers on the horizon. “A lot of youth haven’t

been able to volunteer their time in the summer, but want to get involved after school starts,” Smith said. Smith also has researched possible grant opportunities. The deadlines on some have passed, but she has provided information to the committee on when the application process becomes available again. “They need a member of the department, or adult figure involved in the community, to assist them in moving forward,” Smith said. Older members are content to work on their own fundraising projects, but Smith found the younger members need coaching and reminding in order to keep them involved. “I feel as this project moves forward, there will be a real need for an employee to work specifically on the park, especially when it comes to grant writing and fundraising.” Smith’s contract with the department ended last week. She noted the group is quite keen on working on the fundraising projects. Committee chair councillor Tom Anderson, who attended the skatepark group’s first meeting, said

raising funds will be a challenge, “but I see an eagerness from the group to move forward.” He said with many members still at a young age, “they’ll be around (the skate park) for awhile.” “We want to keep the fundraising going, once a month, twice a month, it’ll keep people talking,” Smith added. PROJECT COST? Council hasn’t established a working number on the cost of this project, Anderson noted. “See what $50,000 can get; see what $100,000 can get.” All recreation committee members agreed, Ma-TeWay Park made the most sense for the skatepark’s location. “We’ll do some research. It’ll be a little step committing a piece of real estate,” committee council rep Andrew Evans observed. Evans’ one concern was that the building of the park might turn into a lengthy process once construction begins, adding piece by piece over a number of years. Anderson assured him that would not be the case. The park would be built at one time, with the potential to add on, he said.

Eyes on NHA/NHL museum home in post office building STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com

If the National Hockey Association/National Hockey League’s museum committee members have their way, the museum will open in the Renfrew post office building before Christmas. Council has yet to approve the committee’s request to lease all or most of the second floor of the building for one dollar per year for five years. But members are optimistic that council will approve that request as one way to bring more tourists to town. Even though the museum displays have yet to be built, Miller says he has already been asked about bus tours to town to see the museum.

To date, the committee has raised about $12,700 for renovations and other activities. “It’s really just start-up money because we’re going to need a lot more than that,” said committee secretary Jim Miller’s proposal to council Monday night. Additional fundraising will also take place once the museum has a place to call home. Fundraising efforts will include the sale of souvenirs to the visiting public, Miller said. Miller also sits on Renfrew council as one of its five councillors. Other committee members are chairman M.J. Blimkie, treasurer Ken Dagenais, Frank Cosentino, Doug Miller, Bob Barker and Sandi Heins. The committee’s immediate

goals include finding a federal grant to build an elevator to provide accessibility for the handicapped, and opening the museum in November or December 2011. If it does open then, special guests connected to the community and the National Hockey League would be invited for a grand opening in the New Year, said Coun. Miller. If an elevator grant is not forthcoming, the committee would have to begin a fundraising campaign. But that is not the goal at this time, says Miller’s two-page report to council. His report also says that in 2003 the mayor (Sandi Heins) and council proclaimed Renfrew as the birthplace of the National Hockey Association, the precursor to the National Hockey

League. “Since that time, nothing much has been done to take advantage of this unique situation that has been recognized in the Hockey Hall of Fame for some years (with Ambrose O’Brien as a builder of the NHL),” the report adds. “The NHA/NHL Committee feels that it is time to move on with plans to display this important event before all supporting memorabilia and history is lost forever.” The next day, committee members signed papers to officially incorporte the museum. Its official name will be NHA/NHL Birthplace Museum. Council will revisit issues re- JIm Miller, Renfrew councillor and lated to leasing the post office spokesperson for the NHA/NHL building Sept. 12. museum committee.

Timberwolves deserve better, says junior B hockey president Request to lower ice-rental rates or drop user fees STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com

Doug Miller was ecstatic to see his favourite team, the Boston Bruins, capture the Stanley Cup this past spring. But he was less enthusiastic about another hockey matter. For several years now, the local junior hockey team’s management has been less than pleased to pay mid-range ice rental rates. The lowest fees are charged to minor hockey and other local sports, while the Timberwolves pay about $138 per hour, plus seasonal user fees for imported players (not residing in Renfrew). The recreation committee has not recommended adoption of the junior team’s request to drop user fees after Miller’s request to the committee in June. Miller made a similar pitch to town council Monday night, arguing that the Timberwolves deserve to pay a minor-hockey rate because they are a minor hockey team. The issue will likely come forward for discussion and a vote at the Sept. 12 council meeting, but it appears the Timberwolves won’t get much support in that regard. According to a recent story in The Mercury, Miller said the recreation committee voted not to drop the Wolves’ user fees because that would be prece-

dent-setting and give other organizations the same opportunity. Renfrew receives about $50,000 per year in recreation user fees, including the Timberwolves’ share this season of $2,0946.84. “It appears no one seems to know where we, the Renfrew Timberwolves, fit in. So let me respectfully submit that we have always been treated as a precedent, if you will,” Miller said Monday night before council. Prior to 2003, an “arbitrary decision” by council determined the junior team could not be classified as minor hockey because the Wolves charge admission. “And so we were charged the existing out-of-town rates as well as user fees,” added Miller. “In 2003, after a number of meetings and considerable discussion, our rate was reduced to somewhere between out-of-town rate and the minor rate for the regular season. But it increased for the playoffs. “In 2007, the user fees were waived for the team’s first eight out-of-town players, but apparently that was only for one year, and I don’t exactly understand why. Then, in 2008, our ice rental was established at the mid rate, including the playoffs, but also with the cost of user fees.” Meanwhile, Miller says the non-profit organization works hard to keep its

financial ship afloat, with an annual budget of about $120,000. This includes more than $16,000 in ice rental and over $2,000 in user fees. “In order to be successful, we must be competitive,” stressed Miller. “If we’re not competitive, we will have no fans. It would be nice to have 21 players coming from Renfrew, that would be the ideal. It can’t and it won’t happen. This year we had approximately 12.” “We bring in players to win a Valley Division championship, then we get dinged for doing that. It costs us money to bring those players in.” Also, he noted that junior hockey is governed by the Ontario District Hockey Association, a division of minor hockey. Accordingly, Miller pointed out that other eastern Ontario junior teams, such as the Pembroke Lumber Kings, are charged minor hockey ice rental rates. “They are minor hockey teams. And they charge admission,” stressed Miller. Ice rates vary across the Valley, but there are no user fees except in Renfrew, said Miller. Therefore, charge the Timberwolves minor hockey rates and continue paying the user fee, if necessary, Miller advised council. “At present, the status quo is unfair. It really is double-dipping. An in-

creased rental rate on one hand and a user hand on the other. Please … one or the other, but not both.” Acting Mayor Tom Anderson said council would consider the request. Later in the meeting, An-

derson led discussion, at which time he questioned how the town could drop the user fee, since it would open the door to many other organizations making the same request. “It’s not a $2,000 ques-

tion … it’s a lot bigger question, so it is definitely precedent-setting, I feel,” said Anderson, who also chairs the recreation committee. See ‘Bone’, Page 21

The hot and sunny weather July 30 didn’t deter 68 golfers from playing a fun tournament at Dragonfly Golf Links in support of Sarah Leighton. Leighton is the Canadian open women’s champion in powerlifting and will be representing Canada at the world championships in Plzen, Czech Republic in November of 2011. Her family and friends organized the tournament to help raise funds for the trip overseas. The day of golf was a huge success. Many local businesses and individuals were very generous and donated prizes and/or sponsored the tournament. Leighton was very thankful for all the people who came and played in support of her world championship endeavour. She would also like to thank all of her very generous sponsors. A huge thank-you also goes out to Kevin Brown and his staff at Dragonfly Golf Links.

Nathan Blok celebrated on the podium Aug. 6. The 17-year-old Beachburg driver brought his No. 5 Van Dieman F-1600 to the seventh and eighth rounds of the 2011 Formula 1600 Championship at the historic Grand Prix du Trois-Rivières. Blok finished sixth in the opening feature of the day, but put it all together in the second race to take the checkered flag. “I didn’t have a good start, but I was able to recover and moved through the field one car at a time. The car was great all weekend and I am very pleased that I was able to take the win for my sponsors and the team,” said Blok after the podium presentations. The starting grid for Saturday’s afternoon feature heat was based upon Friday’s lap times placing Blok third on the grid at the notoriously narrow track lined with concrete walls. Both drivers on the front row collided against a wall at the green flag, allowing three other drivers to take the lead and drop Blok down one position into fourth place. After a full-course caution period, Blok, the second-youngest driver in the field, began his steady push towards the lead, racing wheel-to-wheel with veteran drivers who have many years of experience at this track. Lap 13 proved to be the lucky number for Blok as he took the lead. But he had Olivier Bonnet, the 2010 Series Champion, right on his gearbox until the chequered flag flew at the end of Lap 20. Blok maintained his lead in the Formula Tour 1600 Championship with the victory. He is now preparing for the next Formula Tour 1600 event when he races at the ICAR Circuit in Mirabel, Que., just north of Montreal, on Sept. 9 to 11.

JIM LEGGETT

‘Bone of contention for quite some time’ Continued from Page 17 His reference was the Timberwolves’ user-fee bill for 16 out-oftown players, for a total year’s bill of $2,047.84. It appears the issue will return to the Sept. 12 council meeting for more discussion and a possible decision. If the Timberwolves were allowed to pay a minor-hockey rate, they would save about $35

hours an hour. Based on annual ice rental of about 120 hours, that would save the club more than $3,500. “Either treat us as minor hockey and we’ll pay the user fee,” Miller told The Mercury. “If town council decides we should pay the mid-way rate (of about $138), then drop the userfee.” Lowering the mid-way rate

would save the Timberwolves about $35 an hour, or a saving of more than $4,000. “This has been a bone of contention for quite some time,” said Miller. “We would just love to put this to bed. If we knew we were going to pay X amount of dollars and cents, and there will be no user fees, that would certainly make us very happy.”

New district manager introduced SHERRY HAAIMA sherry.haaima@metroland.com

Leo Hall, left, accepts the Ross Silversides Award from Jim McCready, chair of the Eastern Ontario Model Forest.

On behalf of his dad MARK RICHARDSON Eastern Ontario Model Forest

On June 16 of this year Leo Hall of Renfrew attended the Eastern Ontario Model Forest’s 19th annual general meeting at the Old Town Hall in Almonte to accept the Ross Silversides Award on behalf of his father, Bill. Named in honour of the late Dr. C. Ross Silversides, the driving force behind the original Eastern Ontario Model Forest proposal and an internationally respected forester, this award recognizes individuals for their outstanding contribution to sustainable forestry. Openness, cooperation, foresight, knowledge, dedication and respect for the forest and all its values characterized Silversides’ approach to the forest and the people associated with it. The individuals given this award have demonstrated similar qualities. The purpose of the award is to recognize these special people of Eastern Ontario for their efforts and to encourage others to make their own contribution. William (Bill) Hall, a long-term Ottawa Valley resident, was a professional forester of the highest calibre. More than that, he was a friend, a teacher, an innovator; that helped many people better understand what is possible in progressive forest management, and an ethical approach to life. Bill graduated from the University of Toronto’s forestry faculty in 1954. The early part of his career was with the Ontario Department of Lands and Forests. Within 10 years he had settled in Renfrew and had begun assembling forest land, ultimately totalling 6,000 acres, which he, and later his son and partner Leo, managed as an increasingly progressive forest business. Bill and Leo often hosted tours on their land where they were

proud to demonstrate the results of their dedication to the betterment of their forest through new innovative management approaches. Latterly, Bill and Leo visited a number of forest areas in the United States and Europe to better understand the potential for biomass conversion to energy and how Ontario and their own business could prosper from better harnessing this potential. Bill was always a participant in forestry events in the Ottawa Valley. He was a life member of the Canadian Institute of Forestry, the Ontario Professional Forestry Association and an active proponent of local woodlot organizations in Renfrew and Lanark Counties At forest field tours and forest related meetings, Bill was there and interested in learning and contributing his own wisdom to the forest management dialogue. His advice was based on the conviction that what is done needs to make business sense; otherwise nothing of enduring value will result. The abiding memory of Bill was a man who was completely practical in his advice, given with a smile and generosity which disarmed any who might have held contrary views. The recipients of the Ross Silversides Award demonstrate one or more of the following criteria: • significant contribution to sustainable forestry in Eastern Ontario; • strong commitment to community forestry; • innovative approaches to forestry practice; and • outstanding ability and willingness to transfer knowledge of sustainable forestry practices to the people of Eastern Ontario and elsewhere. Bill Hall ably fulfilled all four criteria.

McNab-Braeside council has a better understanding of the provincial Ministry of Natural Resources and its role in the township after Pembroke district manager Rick Watchorn visited council Aug. 2. “We’re very proud of our MNR office here in Pembroke,” said Mayor Mary Campbell in her introduction of Watchorn, who has been on the job for three and a half months. His visit was a response to the municipality reaching out to improve communication and help answer some of the questions in the township relating to the MNR. Watchorn, born and raised in nearby Carleton Place, shared some of his background, telling council he started out working as a forester, a path that took him across the country as he filled various positions. He returned to Ontario several years ago and worked most recently as a superintendent for a construction company before moving into government. “It’s extraordinarily interesting to have the perspective…of private versus public. Watchorn explained his office runs a variety of programs, first and foremost are the natural resource management programs. Wildlife, fish, aggregates,

planning – all fall under the MNR, explained Watchorn. Enforcement, compliance and services like deer and other animal tags for hunters are also done by Pembroke MNR staff. Municipal planning related to wetlands, wildlands, heritage and other features such as Karst or Leda clay, is another area of expertise for MNR staff, said Watchorn. There are still some “front counter” services offered, said Watchorn, but for the most part, provincial services are offered at Service Ontario centres. A big focus for his office is healthy eco-systems – healthy communities. “Healthy ecosystems help us support us for a number of reasons,” said Watchorn. Mayor Campbell asked about conservation authorities. “Most municipalities in southern Ontario have conservation authorities,” she said. “It’s a subject of heated debate in the municipality. “We’ve always been proud of ourselves in Renfrew County that we don’t have a conservation authority and MNR takes on that role. Watchorn made reference to his previous post as area manager for the Kemptville district, where a total of five CA s looked after the region, what Watchorn described as a sometimes “complex navigation system.”

The one-stop shopping-type service offered allows the department to assess the programs and their effectiveness, he said. He also encouraged residents to report any concerns to his office. “They love having that information. They really crave that information because it helps them to focus on where there’s a resource use problem,” said Watchorn.

Profit posted SHERRY HAAIMA sherry.haaima@metroland.com

The final numbers are in and McNab-Braeside township is indeed in the black following the McNab Days festival held in late June. Net profit from the event, which stretched over three days and was held in several locations, was $2,439.06, council was told Aug, 2. “I was hoping for break even, and to make a profit is great,” said Coun. Brad McIlquham. He joined Mayor Mary Campbell and the rest of council in touting the efforts of volunteers, staff, businesses and the community, who all came together to make the event a success. As per an earlier council decision, the funds will be spent on a new township sign along Highway 17. Several ideas were bandied about, including commissioning a larger version of the sign at the township office or putting a call out to the community to submit ideas. Council has directed staff to gather information on sign pricing and design.

Marilyn Keizer saw and heard a hummingbird moth feeding in one of her flower beds. The small size and the humming of the mothâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wings drew her attention. It is very unusual to see these moths this late in the season. However, we will welcome them at any time. Watch and listen for them (donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let them fool you) feeding among your flowers.

A welcome email. Jim and Ila: Every now and then, if you do enough birding, you happen upon a great sighting. I did this morning at Admaston hamlet in the creek valley across the road from Grace United Church I came across a very active flock of a variety of birds. For 15 minutes my head was swivelling constantly to try to keep up to all the birds I saw. Many of these were warblers and a lot of the warblers were immature and, as you know, they can be very difficult to identify when you only get a brief glimpse of them. The species that I could positively identify included the following: yellow warbler, black and white warbler, black throated green warbler, American redstart, Nashville warbler, indigo bunting, chickadee, northern waterthrush. I estimate that the flock contained at least three or four more warblers that I could not positively identify. Bob Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Donnell

The birds, with the exception of hummingbirds, barn swallows and song sparrows, at Colleen and Tom Leckieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s feeders at Douglas have been gone for about 16 days. The feeders had been busy with grosbeaks, goldfinches, purple finches and nuthatches feeding. As I mentioned in the information on moulting I would think that the birds have gone to moult and will be back in a week or two.

Joanne Jackson got a surprise when she was watering the flowers in her hanging impatience planter when a female hermit thrush flew from her nest among the flowers. The hermit thrush is a ground nester and it is very unusual for them to build on a site above ground level. The field marks of this thrush are its habit of running short distances on the ground, stopping and flicking its wings then raising its tail and slowly lowering it. The beautiful flute-like warble of the male is a song once heard it seldom forgotten.

We had a call from Cathy Carty on 7th Avenue in Renfrew and she has a mourning dove that insists on building her nest on the windshield of her car. Last week Anita Agnew told us of a mourning dove that was constantly building her nest on her car windshield. Is this a new trend for the doves? Cathy had to resort to placing a blanket over the windshield to prevent the dove from building. The birds imprint on a site so that they will be able to find it at a later time when they return with building materials. Cardinals will start several nests, one on each step, if the site they have chosen is on a set of outside steps or on a fire escape. The birds are confused by the similarity of the steps.

Birds must spend a great deal of time caring for their feathers for their lives depend on them. Preening, bathing dusting and other care operations cannot stop the feathers from wearing out. Feathers, like fingernails, are lifeless and cannot be repaired and therefore must be replaced. All or partial moults occur in the fall after nesting and in the spring before migration. Birds shed and then replace thousands of feathers, about 40 per cent of their weight. Moulting draws heavily on reserves of protein and energy which must be replaced. A blue jay will increase its food intake by 20 per cent during peak periods of feather production. Brownheaded cowbirds increase their oxygen intake by 40 per cent during their moult. To provide the food and protection required to moult, birds will move to a secluded area where food is plentiful. Ducks and geese change their feathers all at once in a period as short as two weeks. During this time they cannot fly and will spend the time in very secluded wetlands. Some species, male goldfinches and bobolinks, change their looks completely; both take on the colour patterns of the female. The birds have gone to the tailors for a new wardrobe, but they will be back.

Police

OPP will enforce midnight curfew

After two months of rises in the incidents of vandalism and thefts from vehicles, the Renfrew OPP will continue to encourage residents to protect their property and lock it or lose it! The crime prevention program Lock It Or Lose It encourages simple measures that will prevent victimization. Keep your vehicle locked, remove keys, keep windows closed and valuables should be kept out of sight. OPP officers will also enforce the curfew provisions of the Child and Family Services Act which prohibits children under 16 from loitering in public places between midnight and 6 a.m. In an effort to stop the illegal activity that is occurring in our community, parents of children apprehended between midnight and 6 a.m. can expect to be contacted and will be required to attend the OPP detachment to retrieve their child. “Parents play an extremely important role in crime prevention in Renfrew and area. It takes everyone to keep our community safe. Please be responsible parents and know where your children are and what they are doing, and educate them about the curfew,” says Staff Sgt. Colin

Slight, Renfrew OPP detachment commander. CALLS FOR SERVICE

The Renfrew detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police responded to 214 calls for service during the past week. Among them, Renfrew OPP officers responded to six domestic disputes. One male was charged with mischief. No other criminal offences occurred. IMPAIRED DRIVING One male is facing charges after police responded to a complaint of a possible impaired driver in Renfrew on Aug. 11 about 1:45 a.m. A citizen reported a male driving a green car who appeared intoxicated, and a licence plate was provided. OPP officers stopped the vehicle on Raglan Street South in Renfrew. The male driver had been drinking and was arrested at the scene for impaired driving. The male refused to provide samples of his breath for testing. A 23-year-old Renfrew man was charged with failing to provide breath samples and was re-

leased on a promise to appear in court in Renfrew on Oct. 5. Const. Rick Shikatani investigated. SEXUAL ASSAULT INVESTIGATIONS Renfrew OPP officers investigated two sexual assault complaints during the past week. The first investigation began on Aug. 11 when a female victim reported unwanted sexual touching by a male acquaintance. The investigation was conducted and no charges were laid as there were no grounds to believe a criminal offence had been committed. Det. Const. Lori Birmingham investigated. The second complaint was received Aug. 12 when a female reported being sexually assaulted in Renfrew. All involved parties have been identified, and witnesses are being interviewed. The investigation is continuing by Det. Const. Wendy Burchell. If you have information on any criminal offence that results in charges being laid, you qualify for an award of up to $2,000. Call Pembroke/Renfrew County Crime Stoppers at 735-8477 that is 735 -Tips or you can reach us at 1-800-222-8477. You could help solve a crime.

Dr. Arthur Dick receives prestigious Callwood Award HOSPICE RENFREW Dr. Arthur Dick was recently awarded the prestigious June Callwood Award at the annual Hospice Palliative Care confrence in Toronto. This award is given for outstanding volunteerism in the hospice sector. Dr. Dick has been a long-time

advocate for hospice palliative care in Renfrew and the surrounding area. In 2003, Dr. Dick and a group of volunteers came together and discussed building a residential hospice in Renfrew. Due to his hard work and commitment, this dream became a reality and Hospice Renfrew opened in January 2008.

Dr. Dick has been a volunteer member of the board of directors at Hospice Renfrew and even since his retirement in 2010 he continues as a member of the Hospice Renfrew board of directors and regularly attends weekly community rounds at the hospice. Dr. Dick is an example of unwavering commitment to

hospice palliative care that is outstanding and much appreciated. Hospice Renfrew could not have happened without his dedication and enthusiasm. His commitment has inspired a reality and a model of rural residential hospice care for Ontario. Dr. Arthur Dick

False 9-1-1 calls, speeding issues SHERRY HAAIMA Sherry.haaima@metroland.com

Speeding and false 9-1-1 calls continue to be a problem in McNab-Braeside Township. There were 121 false 911 calls in the township in the first half of this year, according to the Community Police Advisory Committee activity report. Coun. Brad McIlquham, who sits on the committee, highlighted the report and CPAC’s strategic plan at the Aug. 2 regular council meeting. “There’s a huge amount of 911 calls and a lot of them are mistakes,” said McIlquham. “It’s supposed to be for serious incidents and it’s being used for everything.” Mayor Mary Campbell questioned why the township’s numbers are so elevated. “Why is McNab-Braeside so much higher than any other township?” asked Campbell. In neighbouring townships, the numbers were Greater Madawaska 32, Whitewater 36 and Horton 41. McIlquham said it’s possible the number is higher simply because McNab-Braeside has a larger population. He added that the OPP have suggested not enough public knowledge and people being careless are among reasons for the high number of false calls. Mischief occurrences are up considerably over the past two years and OPP are working to address that, said McIlquham. First on the list of local initiatives is increased visibility within communities to address prohibited activities on or near municipally owned properties, including parks and recreational facilities. Increased highway safety is second on the priority list and includes enforcement of speeding and impaired driving infractions and use of the OPP’s speed sign. Burnstown Road seems to be a problem area for speeding, said McIlquham. “They’re looking at more enforcement on the Burnstown Road,” he said. Mary Campbell agreed speeding is an issue in many areas of the township and asked about the most effective method for addressing it. Signage and enforcement are among the key factors to stop it, said McIlquham. “After a number of tickets are issued, they really slow down for a long time,” he said. Campbell expressed her disappointment that garbage was not listed as a focus.“I don’t see garbage anywhere here and dumping is still an issue within the township,” said Campbell. Third on the list of local initiatives was support for programs that address property crime and illegal drug use issues.

Scotiabank accepting donations for drought victims Scotiabank branches across Canada are accepting donations to the Red Cross in support of its relief efforts in Africa. A cycle of severe droughts has led to a humanitarian crisis in the Horn of Africa, which includes Somalia, Kenya, Djibouti, Ethiopia and Uganda. It is estimated nearly 11 million people have been affected, many fleeing their homes, and left with limited access to food, clean wa-

ter and shelter. The Red Cross Red Crescent Movement has a strong presence in the Horn of Africa and is actively scaling up operations to meet the urgent needs of affected communities. Scotiabank branches will be accepting donations until Sept. 16 and the Government of Canada has pledged to match individual donations.

The organizers say many thanks go out, from the kids and Dairy Queen staff, to the community “for being such supporters to this miracle that is happening.” All proceeds of Blizzards purchased on Miracle Day go to support this good

cause. The kids also sold items at a table at the front of the Dairy Queen to add a few more dollars to the cause.

John Diefenbaker to open 1971 Renfrew Fair AUGUST 17, 1911 NEW DERRICK MADE: For the second time this year the derrick, employed in lifting the stones and rocks out of the flume, broke on Tuesday morning. The accident was caused by the letting of one of the “stiff legs” breaking. This caused the whole derrick to fall. Luckily, no one was beneath it at the time and the damage was confined to the timber only. A new derrick is being made and it is expected to be ready in a week’s time. RCI TEAM COULD BE IN DCRA: There is a possibility that the RCI cadet corps will enter a team in the D.C.R.A. matches at Rockcliffe rifle range, Ottawa. The meet takes place next week, commencing on Monday. The following have been chosen to represent the local collegiate at the DCRA, R. Gravelle, J. Gravelle, W. Robertson, C. Atkinson, H. Lester, B. Bryan, P. Durbrow and I. McKinnon. The first six named are certain to go, while Durbrow and McKinnon are expected to complete the team. AUGUST 6, 1936 FOR BAILIFF, THE OFFICE SEEKS THE MAN: Christopher Miller was succeeded by Donimick J. Ritza as bailiff. Mr. Ritza retired after the last provincial election. Peter Morris was appointed, but there was that about the duties which he did not like. He signi-

OLGA LEWIS FROM THE OLD FILES fied his desire to quit the work months ago, and not until a few days since was his resignation accepted and a new man named. The new man is Joseph Lafreniere of Renfrew, who will ascertain how the commission suits his tastes before giving a final yes or nay. RENFREW ELECTRIC CO. OCCUPIES NEW OFFICE: Clerical staff of the Renfrew Electric & Refrigerator Co. entered the new office beside the factory on Elizabeth Street on Thursday last. The new office is a roomy one nicely furnished. Its erection will release space in the factory building for manufacturing purposes. Town workmen have built a curb on the north side of Elizabeth Street from German Street to the west end of the factory, and Mr. William Lepine is engaged in beautifying the grounds by a leveling process and through the use of flowering plants. Front of the factory building though of brick construction will be painted. AUGUST 11, 1971 NEW INDUSTRY IN RENFREW: Another new industry in Renfrew, W.E. Hodgins Industries, is expected to be in

operation before the end of the month. Robert Hodgins, president of the firm, said that everything is set to start in operation within the next week or so. Twenty men will be employed to start with, and the number will increase as time goes on. The plant, 18,000 square feet in size, will manufacture roof trusses, and pre-fab buildings. The latter is an added feature over original plans and was not included under the federal grant received by the firm. The plant is located on Tupper Street. DIEFENBAKER TO OPEN RENFREW FAIR: This year’s Renfrew Fair will be officially opened by the Rt. Hon. John Diefenbaker, Thursday evening, Sept. 9. T.F. Barnet, president of the society, said he was most pleased Mr. Diefenbaker had accepted the invitation to attend the fair and participate at the opening ceremonies. A fourth generation Canadian, Mr. Diefenbaker was born in Gray County, Ont. and moved to Saskatchewan at the age of eight. Educated in the West, he received his Bachelor of Law Degree in 1919 from the University of Saskatchewan. A veteran of World War I, Mr. Diefenbaker was first elected to Parliament as a member for Lake Centre in 1940. Mr. Diefenbaker has made several previous visits to Renfrew and will be no stranger to many local and area people. For help with research, contact olewis@ sympatico.ca.

Clark Guettel: a creative and independent spirit remembered er’s Glass in 1972, and 1985 and 1988 from the Ontario Crafts Council. His work has also been included in collections in the Royal Ontario

Museum and the Museum of Civilization. In the early 1970s he began playing music on weekends with two other locals also

Continued from Page 4 “Loading ourselves and supplies into several trucks and vans, we taught craft and art sessions in Bancroft, Calabogie and Killaloe,” remembers Gill. “Clark’s Truck ‘Fargo’ was the main truck and became the symbol by which w were named the Craft Truckers. During the summer, fellow craft trucker Peggy Bridgeland was charmed by Clark, they fell in love and subsequently settled down to build a studio in Rockingham, near Killaloe.” Years later, Bittersweet Gallery is pleased to do the special display of work by Guettel, whom the gallery has represented since it opened in 2000. Guettel died Jan. 12, 2011 at the age of 61. He was a g l a s s - b l o w e r, musician and organic farmer. He died on his rural Killaloearea property surrounded by family members and friends after a seventhmonth battle with cancer. The youngest of four siblings of Charlie and June, he grew up in East Orange, New Jersey. His interest in music and the arts led him to take courses in glass blowing at New Jersey’s Kean College, Toronto’s Ontario College of Art and Mississauga’s Sheridan College School of Crafts and Design, from which he graduated in 1973.

ROADSHOW COMES TO RENFREW NEXT WEEK! By Jason Delong

Got gold? Next week, visitors can cash in on scrap gold, fine jewelry, silver and other precious metals.

STAFF WRITER Clean out your attics, closets and lock boxes, because the Treasure Hunters Roadshow is coming to Renfrew. Roadshow specialists are in town examining gold and silver jewelry, old coins and more. While the Roadshow will accept anything that’s old and valuable, they will be focusing on: gold and silver coins made before 1968, U.S. coins made before l970, military items, fine art, musical instruments, pocket and wrist watches. Scrap gold is expected to be a popular category this week due to soaring gold prices. Buyers for the Roadshow have noticed a tremendous increase in the amount of gold coming to the shows, and for good reason. Record gold prices have Roadshow guests cashing in on broken or outdated jewelry with our fair and honest purchase offers. The Roadshow encourages anyone planning a visit to take a minute and examine their jewelry box or their lock box at the bank and gather anything that is gold. If a guest is not sure if something is gold, bring it anyway and the Roadshow staff will test it for free. Other gold items of interest include gold coins, gold ounces, gold proof sets and dental gold.

Other types of items Roadshow specialists hope to see include vintage guitars. Ryan Krushas, one of the Roadshow’s instrument specialists, spoke about some of the top guitars getting great offers. “Old Gibsons and Fenders are in big demand right now,” said Krushas, “vintage amps too. We also buy violins, mandolins, woodwinds – if it plays it pays!” Timepiece specialist Jeff

“COINS MADE BEFORE 1968 ARE THE MOST SOUGHT AFTER BY COLLECTORS. U.S. COINS MADE BEFORE 1965 ARE 90% SILVER. COINS CAN BE VALUABLE BECAUSE OF EITHER THE SILVER CONTENT OR EVEN MORE VALUABLE IF ONE HAPPENS TO BE A RARE DATE.”

collecting coins. I would go through the change in my parents’ grocery store, looking for rare dates and errors. Once, I found a silver quarter that I sold for $300. Not bad for an 8 year old.” Fuller went on to explain that coins made before 1968 are the most sought after by collectors. U.S. coins made before 1965 are 90% silver. Coins can be valuable because of either the silver content or even more valuable if one happens to be a rare date. Fuller explained, “We help people sort through their coins for unique dates. We buy all types of coins at the Roadshow — from wheat pennies to buffalo nickels, and from single coins to entire truckloads. See you at the Roadshow.”

Above—Roadshow specialist, Tony Enright, talks with a family about the gold jewelr y that they brought in. Ford adds, “Watches are hot! We recently paid over $2,500 for an old Hamilton pocket watch. And we are buying all types of high-end wrist watches too. Brands like Rolex, Tiffany and Chopard are very desirable to collectors. And the finest Swiss timepiece in the world, Patek Philippe, just earned a happy seller $42,000.” When specialist Tom Fuller was asked what he enjoyed most about working at the Roadshow, he was quick to answer, “Old coins and paper currency — for as long as I can remember, I have been fascinated with

Dear Angels, If roses grow in Heaven, Please pick a bunch for me, Place them in my mother’s arms And tell her they’re from me. Tell her that I love and miss her And when she turns to smile, Place a kiss upon her cheek And hold her for awhile Remembering her is easy We do it everyday, But there is an ache within our hearts That will never go away.

A little one has come to join us Since the day you went away And I know that you were with us And so happy on that day. Although we couldn’t see you, In my heart I know it’s true And we are all so happy That he has your eyes of blue. Love you lots, Elwood, Kim, Sherry-Lynn, Ian and Cal CL25696
