ST. PAT'S PARADE ANOTHER HIT IN DOUGLAS
TARA GESNER email@example.com Irish or not, Douglas residents and visitors commemorated St. Patrick's Day over the weekend. The village in Renfrew County hosted its annual St. Patrick's Parade, sponsored by the Douglas Lions Club, on March 9. The event kicked off a week of festivities in Douglas and across the Valley leading up to St. Patrick's Day March 17. The downtown area was draped in green, white and orange on Saturday as parade participants started lining up outside St. Michael's Catholic School at 2 p.m. The procession left five hours later, at 7 p.m. The opening ceremonies were at 6:30 p.m. Refreshments were available to onlookers outside the school, in addition to the nearby Douglas Tavern. Feeling the luck of the Irish, a number of area families, businesses and organizations took part in the parade, including the Renfrew County Plowmen's Association, the Renfrew Fair and the Dacre and Area Community Association. The 2019 Renfrew County Plowing Match takes place on Sept. 14, with the Smaglinski family of Cobden hosting. This year's Renfrew Fair runs Sept. 4-8.

DAMAGING FLOODS POSSIBLE BUT NOT CERTAIN: CEMC EMERGENCY OFFICIALS START PREPARING FOR SPRING MELT
THE ISSUE: POTENTIAL FLOODING ALONG THE OTTAWA RIVER AND ITS TRIBUTARIES. LOCAL IMPACT: EMERGENCY OFFICIALS URGE WATERFRONT RESIDENTS TO BE PREPARED BUT NOT OVERREACT.
JOHN CARTER john.car firstname.lastname@example.org
Myles MacMillan/submitted This photo from 2017 shows flooded properties on the Ottawa River about one kilometre east of the entrance of the Bonnechere into the Ottawa. The photo was taken with a drone and a Gopro attachment May 4. Most of the reservoirs on the Ottawa River watershed are up north in Quebec, so by the time the river swings east, the flow is harder to control. The Timiskaming is the last significant reservoir on the main stem of the Ottawa River. While there are a number of dams on the river from Timiskaming to Montreal, they have very little storage capacity and generally pass whatever is coming down the river in periods of high water. What can slow the flow is the thermometer dipping to below zero at night even if it is warm during the days, Osipenko said. "Good maple syrup temperatures, that's what we need to prevent flooding." Osipenko, who is also the alternate CEMC for Renfrew County, said preparations have begun to ensure governments and residents are ready in case there is flooding this spring. "We've started the process of prepping for the spring freshette," he said. All the area CEMCs, the County of Renfrew, and the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry (MNRF) are involved in the process. The emergency planners are working on information sheets this
year focusing on pre-flood preparations, he noted. They are a natural expansion of the information already compiled to assist residents during flooding and afterwards with the clean-up. Noting sandbags are a key item, Osipenko said the CEMCs are "taking stock" of what resources are available to combat flooding. Asked what waterfront residents can do ahead-oftime to protect their homes, Osipenko said sandbags are about the only defence. "That or move your house," he said. He noted that in the last flood, homes built to specifications above the high water mark were not damaged. The problem lies with older structures on the flood plain or those built on the footprint of former cottages, he said. He reported that most Renfrew County municipalities sent representatives to an emergency management training session at the Horton Community Centre March 4. Of the 57 people there, most were new council members and recently hired municipal employees, but everyone was welcome. The county-hosted workshop explained what
duties and resources municipalities provide in emergencies.
The emergency planners will start making "freshette calls in the next
couple of weeks" to monitor rising waters using MNRF data, Osipenko said. Once the melt begins in earnest, there will be plenty of information made available with flood watches and warnings issued if warranted. See EMERGENCY, page 4

Be prepared, but don't panic. That's the message from a local community emergency management co-ordinator (CEMC) when it comes to potential spring flooding. The unusually high level of snow this winter has some residents in low-lying areas nervous. It was only two years ago that flooding along the Ottawa River caused a great deal of damage in Horton, McNab/Braeside and Constance Bay, as well as parts of Ottawa and Gatineau. Area watershed groups are warning about the possibility of above average flooding this spring in tributaries of the Ottawa River not only because of the amount of snow (about 250 centimetres) but because so little of it has melted so far. The Weather Network has also predicted a "heightened threat" for spring flooding, especially across northern Ontario and the Ottawa Valley, where the snow depth is well above normal. However, Horton CEMC Steve Osipenko points out the snow level is only one of the "predictors" of flooding. While the high snow load has some people "hyper sensitive" at this point, "we can't even predict if there will be a flood," he said. Osipenko noted rain and temperature swings are also important factors. The flooding that deluged parts of Horton in 2017 was triggered by rain on uncontrolled streams that added to the melt, he explained. There wasn't the ability to hold back the run-off, he said. "In the Renfrew area the capacity to hold back water is not as great as most people think."

EMERGENCY PLANNERS CONTINUE TO MONITOR SITUATION Continued from page 3
Regular updates are available on the Ottawa River Regulation Planning Board website at http://www.ottawariver.ca/river-levelsflows.php. The most recent forecast notes "all major reservoirs in the system continue to be emptied in preparation for the freshet. Levels and flows on the main stem of the Ottawa River are within their normal range for this time of the year and are expected to be fairly stable over the coming week." When local streams start running fast because of the melt, which could start soon with the temperature for March 15 predicted to hit double digits, the Renfrew County paramedics, of which Osipenko is a member, have a
simple message for people: "stay away" Ontario Power Generation has already sounded the alarm, issuing its annual March break appeal for people to stay clear of ice or water near OPG's hydroelectric facilities. Watershed groups warn that ice cover on lakes, ditches, local streams and rivers are already becoming unstable. They advise "extreme caution" near local waterbodies and urge parents to warn children of the risks and provide appropriate supervision. While the Weather Network predicts early March will feel more like January, a pattern reversal is expected mid-March with an extended period of warmer spring weather, its says. This will be a welcome contrast to last year,
which featured one of the coldest Aprils on record. However, Spring will "struggle at times" with "significant shots of colder weather" that will interrupt the mild pattern later in April and into May.
WATCH YOUR ROOF Renfrew County paramedics are also alerting the public to another possible problem due to the thickness and nature of this year's snow cover. It could cause "unusual stresses" on some roof structures, warn the paramedics.
THE STORY BEHIND THE STORY:
High snow pack has generated fears of flooding this spring. Metroland consulted the experts to gauge the seriousness of the situation.
FLOOD PREPARATION TIPS SHARED JOHN CARTER john.car email@example.com Given the depth of the snow pack in the Upper Ottawa Valley, area conservation authorities are sharing advice on how residents can prepare for possible flooding. The Rideau Valley Conservation Area, noting the levels are reminiscent of the heavy snowfalls of the 1970s, is urging residents in flood prone or low-lying areas historically susceptible to flooding to take the necessary precautions to protect their property. It suggests: • ensure the sump pump is clear, in good working condition and has a backwater valve; • ensure easy access to a portable back-up generator and pump; • ensure downspouts are clear and the outlet is at least three metres from the dwelling; • secure items that

• keep emergency phone numbers handy; • familiarize yourself with your municipality's emergency preparedness plan.

WHAT’S GOING ON HERE? RENFREW'S ONTRAC OFFICE ON THE MOVE
The Argyle Street office closed by Dr. Bruce Strader on Oct. 31, 2018 is being renovated so Ontrac Employment Resource Services can move into the premises.
JUST THE FACTS: Ontrac Employment Resources Services will celebrate its first anniversary in Renfrew April. Staff are hoping to celebrate moving into new premises at the same time. Renfrew Ontrac office manager Julie Villamere told the Renfrew and Area Chamber of Commerce's annual meeting March 5 that the centre will be moving just up the street in April. The new premises, which used to be a doctor's office, is being renovated so Ontrac can utilize the whole bottom floor at the back. Access will be at the side of the historic multi-use building owned by McGrim-
John Carter/Metroland mon Holdings at 270 Argyle St. South. That large building has five commercial offices and 11 residential suites. Ontrac is currently located on the second floor at 231 Argyle St. next to the back door of Aikenhead's Pharmacy. While the new premises are likely slightly smaller than the current location, it will be better configured to the employment centre's needs and offer better access and parking. "It will be quite nice to have a home of our own with parking," Villamere told chamber members. The Ontrac office, with seven staff members, is open 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and offers a variety of job placement, training and grant accessing services for employers and employees. More information is available online at https://www.getontrac.ca.
RENFREW MEN FACE DRUG, RACING CHARGES An unwanted person call to police resulted in a Renfrew man being nabbed for drug possession March 8. Renfrew OPP report officers responded to the call in town and as a result of the investigation, David Page, 46, has been charged with possession of a schedule one substance. Schedule one drugs are defined as those with no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse. The accused was issued an appearance notice for Renfrew court April 3. On the same day, Arnprior OPP, acting on information a man was in possession of a controlled substance, changed an Arnprior man with the same offence. Officers with the local detachment, supported by members of the Community Street
Crime Unit, located the vehicle he was travelling in and conducted a traffic stop. As a result of the investigation Timothy Bourque, 35, was charged with possession of a schedule one substance. The accused was released on a promise to appear in Renfrew court April 17.
IMPAIRED DRIVING CHARGE On March 5, local OPP officers responded to a motor vehicle collision on Highway 417 east of White Lake Road. As a result of the investigation Kyle Lortie, 28, of Arnprior was charged with impaired driving and driving with over 80 mg. He was held for a bail hearing on March 6 in Pembroke court. On March 9, an OPP officer was conducting traffic enforcement on Highway 60 in Admaston/Bromley. As a result of the
traffic stop Corey Leight, 24, of Renfrew was issued a summons for racing a motor vehicle at excessive speed. The accused will appear in Renfrew court on May 10.
DOMESTIC DISPUTES The four drug and impaired cases were among 216 calls for service investigated by the Renfrew and Arnprior OPP March 410. They included eight domestic disputes, the most serious of which resulted in a man charged with two counts of assault, uttering threats, mischief, being unlawfully in a dwelling, and overcoming resistance by attempting to choke, suffocate or strangle. In another case, a man was charged with assault and in a third a woman faces assault charges.
OPP stress that if you or someone you know is living in or involved in an abusive relationship, help is available.

RENFREW KFC PLANS MOVE FROM LONG-TIME DOWNTOWN LOCATION FINGER LICKIN' GOOD OUTLET TO RELOCATE TO O'BRIEN ROAD JOHN CARTER john.car firstname.lastname@example.org Kentucky Fried Chicken will be moving away from downtown Renfrew so it can enlarge its premises to include an eat-in area and add home delivery. Renfrew KFC manager Lee Visneskie confirmed the outlet has the green light to relocate from its cramped quarters at Raglan and Patrick to one of the empty storefronts, perhaps where The Source recently vacated, in the Rio Can strip mall on O'Brien Road. However, the move isn't likely to happen until Oct. 1 at the earliest and perhaps it will be closer to Christmas. "It's been in the works
John Carter/Metroland The Kentucky Fried Chicken outlet will be moving out of downtown Renfrew by year's end to a larger space in the Rio Can strip mall on O'Brien Road where it will offer sit-down and home delivery in addition to the take-out service. for years," said Visneskie, noting the current building is a "little aged." It came down to a decision over whether to rebuild or move the Renfrew outlet from its long-time
rented property, he said. The Renfrew KFC has been a downtown fixture on its current site for more than 40 years. The fact KFC doesn't own the downtown prop-
erty factored into the decision to move. As well, the company anticipates the new location will be in a high traffic area that is more convenient to access and feature easier parking, Visneskie said. The larger premises will include a sit-down area like the Arnprior and Pembroke KFCs have, he added. The current outlet can get "pretty crowded" at times, he agreed. Visneskie said he expects some of the restaurant's equipment will be moved to the new location. However, if moves by Ottawa restaurants are any indication, the Renfrew KFC will be closed less than a week for the relocation, he said. The KFC is following its former neighbour, the Giant Tiger store, to the Rio Can mall. Giant Tiger relocated to the former Staples store last April. The LCBO store also used to be nearby on Argyle Street, but it too moved to O'Brien Street several years ago. The Rio Can strip mall has had a restaurant in its mix before, but Mr. Sub departed a few years ago.

WHAT IS THE JOB OF A NEWSROOM ETHICS COMMITTEE? Here at Metroland, we value our reputation as being one of Canada's most trusted sources of news. As such, ensuring we are operating in the most ethical fashion possible is something our newsrooms take extremely seriously. In the Ottawa Valley, our Smiths Falls and Renfrew offices have their own ethics committee, which meets bimonthly to discuss any ethics-related matters that have come up over the past couple of months. Many readers may not realize that reporters and editors are frequently called upon to make judgment calls on touchy matters. By working together and talking things through, we strive to always make the best choice possible in these situations. For example, how long do you wait for a response after reaching out to someone for comment on a story? Particularly if said person is portrayed in an unflattering light, reporters should attempt to reach them in more than one way - e.g. by both phone and email. If 24 hours go by and you haven't heard back, should you go ahead and publish, or give them another few hours? Ethics committees can establish general guidelines for these and other matters, and committee members are on hand in the newsroom to talk things through with reporters and assist them in coming up with the best course of action in each situation. Unpublish requests also fall under the umbrella of the ethics committee. For example, what happens if we report on someone being convicted of a crime, then after they've served their time they ask for the old story to be taken off our website, as it continues to pop up whenever someone Googles their name. In the vast majority of cases, the answer will be no, we will not take the story down. The reason is because it's still true that they were arrested and convicted of that crime. It would be irresponsible to simply erase what happened from the record. (This isn't 1984.) However, we will update a story with an editor's note should an individual's charges be dropped or they are found not guilty. It becomes more complicated if a person has been pardoned of a crime. At that point, the committee needs to factor in whether it's ethical to keep the pardoned crime on permanent record if the justice system has absolved the individual. This is a question that will soon be coming up frequently with people being pardoned of possession of marijuana crimes following legalization; most news organizations (including ours) will be establishing an official policy for these cases.

WHO WE ARE
INTERNSHIP A CHANCE TO HONE JOURNALISM SKILLS ALGONQUIN COLLEGE JOURNALISM STUDENT INTRODUCES HIMSELF TO THE COMMUNITY JONATHAN MULVIHILL Column
My name is Jonathan Mulvihill, Jon for short. I was born and raised in Renfrew. I am currently a second-year journalism student at Algonquin College, and I will be doing a five-week internship at the Renfrew Mercury and Arnprior ChronicleGuide as part of the program. I have always had a passion for writing, which was reignited a few years ago after I discontinued accounting studies at the University of Ottawa. During the year off I came across the journalism program at Algonquin and it immediately caught my eye. I started the program
in 2016 and took a break briefly during my second year due to the college strike. I returned to the program to give it my all, and I will be receiving my diploma this spring. In the journalism program, I acquired many essential skills, such as how to take pleasing photographs, how to promote my brand and, most importantly, how to write news stories for both print and online. I have handson experience with both of Algonquin's publications, the Algonquin Times and Glue Magazine. My interests in the field mainly include photography and writing, but I also have experience in layout, editing and broadcast for both radio and television. When I am not working I like to read, go out for
walks and spend time with family and friends. Some of my favourite things include Tim Hortons, music from the seventies, eighties and nineties, shopping and poutine, especially from Odi's Kingburger in town. I am currently living with my parents, Mary and Stephen Mulvihill. I have two older brothers, Matthew and Kip Mulvihill. Kip and his wife had a baby last month, named Taylor Stephen Mulvihill. I am looking forward to interning at the Mercury for the next few weeks, and I am especially happy to be back in the town in which I grew up. Jonathan Mulvihill, a journalism student from Algonquin College, has joined the Renfrew Mercury/Arnprior ChronicleGuide for a five-week internship. The Renfrew native looks forward to the weeks ahead.

Usually by the beginning of March winter's icy grip has weakened. As snowless shoulders along rural roads grow wide, newly arrived Horned Larks search them for seeds, spiders, and insects. If the warmth of a soon-to-arrive spring liberates slow-moving waters from their frozen shackles, male Red-winged Blackbirds soon start flashing their red epaulettes as they noisily announce ownership of newly acquired territories. So far this year, however, March has brought little more than more frigid temperatures and more snow. In the Ottawa area, January holds the distinction of a record amount of snowfall. February's claim to fame is the coldest average temperature. Together, deep snow and frigid temperatures spell hardship and even death for many animals. Recently I came across two animals that are likely not alive today. One was a white-throated sparrow that was visiting a bird feeder near Carleton University. These northern sparrows are famous for their "Sweet Canada Canada Canada" songs frequently heard on Hinterland Who's Who commercials. Now, it's not rare for one of these bulky sparrows to overwinter this far north but this year the unusual roller-coaster temperatures apparently were more than this fellow could handle. I saw it the day after a heavy rain had fallen. Its back feathers were flattened and frozen, their essential insulating properties removed. On cold days, birds fluff up their feathers
Michael Runtz photo This doe White-tailed Deer, like many of her kind, is having a difficult time this winter because of deep snow. to retain more body heat. This bird had no way of doing so and its matted feathers allowed much of its body heat to escape. The sparrow was weak, barely able to hop across the snow. I threw seeds around it hoping that it might eat and regain enough energy to make it through the day. However, the next day it was nowhere to be seen. The other animal was a female white-tailed deer. She was lying down in the snow and at first seemed OK except for some ice around her mouth. But when she struggled to her feet her emaciated frame and unsteadiness as she tried to walk through the belly-deep snow told me she was not in good shape. White-tailed deer have very short legs, a mere metre high at the shoulder, and thus have difficulty moving through deep snow. The record amount that fell in Ottawa in January is testing theses animals to their limits. Moose have legs two metres high at their shoulder and, along with an unusual hip movement, have little difficulty getting around in deep snow. Historically, it was in part snow depth that kept deer from ranging much
farther north in Ontario. When deer gather in large numbers in winter in their "yards" they maintain trails and walk in single file to reach feeding areas. A lone deer does not receive this benefit. But even in numbers, deer have difficulty getting around in deep snow, and sometimes that stress is too much. It is impossible not to feel sorry for an animal in distress. But environmental stress is just one way nature keeps her species healthy. When the toughest survive, they pass on their genes to their offspring. Those less well equipped perish, removing their genes from the pool. At times nature may seem cruel and callous but she is neither; this is simply nature's way.

RACISM ALIVE AND WELL IN RENFREW: LETTER WRITER assume to be her version of events to her large husband. The waitress, who had witnessed what happened, approached our table and apologized for what we had experienced. I told the nice server that it was not her fault and that she needn't apologize for the actions of the local patronage. My wife and I quickly ate what little we had on our plates while enduring hostile looks from the racist woman and her clearly misinformed husband. Even more insane was the fact that my wife was not even dressed like the two servers of this restaurant nor were the two servers of oriental persuasion. They were Caucasian. Add to the fact that at the time of the incident, my wife was in the process of filling her plate at the buffet table. In hindsight we should have just left the restaurant after the incident. We quickly paid our bill at the counter while the server apologized again. It was clear by the woman's actions that she was no stranger to getting physical in order to get her way, so the server allowed us to leave via the side entrance normally reserved for handicapped access. If it was any other town we would have called the police to have that woman charged with assault, but we have learned that here, that would not be an option. Perhaps it was not so coincidental that before deciding to go out to a local restaurant we were discussing our misgivings in doing just that. Lesson learned.

TED LINDSAY STORY BROUGHT BACK MEMORIES To the editor: Love to be reminded of where a well-known person’s roots are from or planted early. Ted Lindsay and his mementos are in my GS bedroom in Kinburn.
I attended the Red Wing hockey school in Detroit at the Olympia with all present day Wings there for ambassador roles and coaching. Terrific! The management was there the last day to observe scrimmages. Ted wasn’t and he by then in 1965 was in his final retirement. The Frew and the Valley score another hit, now just direct it all on the present day Senators!

KUDOS TO AIKENHEAD'S IN RENFREW To the editor: All too often we share only 'bad' experiences. Over the last few months I have regularly experienced gold standard customer service from a local business that I would like to share. My husband and I are currently without a physician, on the Ontario 'orphan patient list.' As seniors, with health issues, this is problematic and visits to local pharmacy for advice and medication have become the norm. Sheila Kemp's team, from the pharmacists to administration, post-office and floor staff have been there to advise, source and order products to meet our needs. All staff are consistently courteous, pleasant and present evidence of Customer First training and philosophy Aikenhead's Drug store, in Renfrew, sets the customer service standard way above most businesses and is a big incentive for 'shop local.' Hats off Sheila and team!

To the editor: I would like to share an experience my wife and I had this past Saturday at a Chinese buffet in Renfrew. While this is not the first time we have experienced negative behaviour here, it does stand out because it reflects the complete lack of education that leads to racist behaviours presenting themselves. I was born in Canada just east of Ottawa and am Caucasian. My wife is from Thailand. We came to live in Renfrew to help in assisting two elderly family members to maintain their independence and remain in their home. We quickly found there is no reliable functional safety net for seniors here, but I digress ... Upon entering the establishment we were greeted with the normal stares from the patrons, who then returned their attention to their food. We took our table near the buffet and were greeted by the nice waitress. My wife and I then went to the buffet table and proceeded to make our selections. I finished first and returned to our table. It is then I noticed a woman in her late 50s telling my wife to "Get her a drink." I approached this woman and said to her "Excuse me, but this is my wife." This woman then barked back that she "only wanted her to get a drink for her." I responded that my wife was not an employee of the restaurant and that just because she looks Asian, it does not mean she works for a Chinese restaurant. At this the foul racist woman grabbed me by the wrist while growling: "Now, you listen to me!" Shocked, in response I said: "Get your hand off me and get away from us, you racist!" This woman had a hatred and superiority about her that myself and my wife had never encountered before. She returned to her table by the front of the restaurant where she lost no time in recounting what I would

RENFREW WRESTLERS WIN MEDALS AT OFSAA JONATHAN MULVIHILL firstname.lastname@example.org Renfrew wrestlers showed off their talent by taking home both gold and silver during the Ontario high school wrestling championships in Ottawa March 5-6. Savana Pinsent of Renfrew Collegiate Institute brought home Ontario Federation of School Athletic Association (OFSAA) wrestling gold in the 61-kg class, defeating Brianna Fraser of St. Patrick's of Kingston, by fall (2:39) in the final. St. Joseph's Catholic High School student Jolie Brisco won silver in the 57.5-kg bracket, defeated by Makitha Bristol of Oshawa's Maxwell Heights in a close final match by decision (8-6). Pinsent won gold last year at the Wrestling Canada Nationals in Edmonton. She has also won medals in OFSAA the past two years, acquiring bronze in 2018 and silver in 2017. Brisco achieved a bronze-medal finish during last year's OFSAA competition and placed seventh in the Wrestling Canada Nationals. Last July, Brisco finished first and Pinsent second at the Ontario Cup competition. Both girls are members of the Vipers wrestling team and travelled to Mexico with Team Ontario for the Mexico Cup in September. The 16-year-olds placed first in

RENFREW CHAMBER ANTICIPATES PRODUCTIVE YEAR JOHN CARTER john.car email@example.com The new executive of the Renfrew and Area Chamber of Commerce is confident it can build on the accomplishments of 2018. At the chamber's annual meeting March 5 at the Rocky Mountain House, outgoing president Amy Rule reported the organization had a successful year providing services, fostering partnerships, and hosting a variety of informational and entertaining events. The focus on partnerships and community events is evident in the chamber's choices for its 2019 executive. The new president is Renfrew Public Library community liaison official Susan Tough, who's been a chamber director for the past two years. Tough has worked at the library since 2012 and also served as a United Church minister for 20 years, including six at Trinity-St. Andrew's. Returning to the chamber executive are vice-president Jean Hughes, who was recently elected Renfrew Business Improvement Association (BIA) president, and
treasurer-secretary Mel Blimkie, who is also BIA treasurer. "We'll continue to build on the great work of the last few years," said Tough, adding the chamber is growing in size and influence. With the chamber's directors providing "excellent" leadership and the members "great ideas," the chamber is in good hands, she said. In her president's report, Rule noted that in 2018 the chamber had increased its membership, held "a lot of great events," and continued to foster strong relationships with the BIA and Town of Renfrew. She said rebranding Newcomers' Night to New to the 'Frew helped double attendance at the event and partnering with MyFM on the Home, Garden and Leisure Show is beneficial to many members. Having 'An evening in Paris' theme for the awards celebration attracted 150 people to the event, which gets bigger every year, she said. Rule thanked the chamber's volunteer board for its hard work and dedication, particularly departing directors Jo-anne Caldwell, Kelley Lemenchick and Lauren Scott, and municipal representatives Mike Coulas, Bob Johnston and Wayne Fraser.
John Carter/Metroland Guiding the Renfrew and Area Chamber of Commerce in 2019, sitting in front from left, are treasurer/secretary Mel Blimkie, president Susan Tough, vice-president Jean Hughes and past president Amy Rule; and in back directors Ken Tubman, Doug Humphries, Carol-Ann Adams, Tom Sidney, Bob Hall, manager Gail Laird, Delaine Collin, Ron Brazeau and Donnie Russett. Missing is Brian Hunt. After two years as president, Rule, owner of the Rocky Mountain House, becomes past president, replacing Kent Tubman, who praised her for always being willing to serve and provide good advice. She listens and comes up with solutions with the business community in mind, he said. "It's been fantastic having you

Renfrew Clinic 627 Fortington St
The varsity boys' hockey team at St. Joseph's came from behind three games in a row to win their second straight Eastern Ontario championship. The thrilling come-from-behind final game, which gives them a berth in the provincial championship later this month, was an overtime 4-3 win after giving up three goals to L'Escale. Nat Leduc was the hero with is second of the game; Jake Pianosi scored the other two during the tournament at Nick Smith Centre on March 5. Coach and school teacher Stacey McGregor was impressed at the level of character shown by the boys, who live in Renfrew, Arnprior and surrounding areas. "They were down three goals and could have given up," he said. "That is the sign of a real good team. And they didn't lose a game all year, so that's pretty impressive." This is the second year in a row St. Joe's has won the Eastern Ontario Secondary School Athletic Association championship. McGregor - whose son Nolan is team captain and plays a major role on the team -
contrasts last year's team with the current group: many talented older players were lost, but many younger ones have filled in. "For us, we are a skating and passing team, and add in that never quit attitude and you've got something pretty special." The semi-final game against Char-lan was not much different. St. Joe's fell behind by two. Their speed proved too much to handle and eventually pulled ahead for the 4-2 win. That game saw the stands packed with elementary students from Arnprior Catholic school cheering on their team. The first game against Thousand Islands Secondary School saw them down by two before pressing on to win 6-3. The provincial championship is the week of March 17 in Kincardine, near Owen Sound.

RCI JUNIOR RAIDERS WRAP UP IMPRESSIVE SEASON
TOUR DE WHITEWATER SET FOR JULY 6 IN WESTMEATH
JOHN CARTER john.car email@example.com The Renfrew Collegiate Institute Junior Boys highly successful basketball season came to an end Feb. 25 in Russell with the team going 1-1 at the Eastern Ontario championships. The boys ended pool play in a three-way tie, but the point differential tie-break eliminated them from championship contention. However, the boys can take solace in the fact they defeated the eventual Eastern Ontario Secondary Schools Athletic Association (EOSSAA) silver medalists La Citadelle 42-38. The number one ranked Raiders lost a squeaker 44-40 to Rideau in their first game. "What a season for this great crew of young men as they are UOVHSAA champions (first boys UOVHSAA championship for RCI since 2009) and finish the season with a 13-8 record; a 9-3 record vs. Single A teams, and a very impressive 9-2 record in the calendar year of 2019," said coach Adam Noack RCI captured the Upper Ottawa Valley High School Athletic Association (UOVHSAA) title with a thrilling 55-52 win over cross-town rival St. Joseph's Feb. 19.

'TRANSFORMING LIVES': KNIGHTS PROVIDE UNFLAGGING SUPPORT FOR SPECIAL OLYMPICS
JOHN CARTER john.car firstname.lastname@example.org A Special Olympics 50th anniversary flag flew proudly at St. Joseph's Catholic High School in Renfrew for three days recently thanks to the Knights of Columbus. Four Renfrew and Arnprior Knights attended the school to present the flag that was hoisted to the top of the flag pole by vice-principal Pam Dickerson. Arnprior Knight Wayne Pickering and Renfrew Knights M.J. Blimkie, Paul Ouellet and Brian Proulx took part in the ceremony Feb. 20 along with St. Joe's principal Brennan Trainor. The flag, which is covered in well-wishes from various supporters, is one of 23 on the cross-country relay that runs from Jan. 7 to March 25. This area's flag was heading to Bancroft

Blimkie and Paul Ouellet, St. Joe's vice-principal Pam Dickerson, principal Brennan Trainor, Renfrew Knight Brian Proulx and Arnprior Knight Wayne Pickering. and other Eastern Ontario centres after its three days in Renfrew. The flag relay was introduced in Ontario in 2011 with the flags travelling the province to raise awareness about the link between Special Olympics and Knights of Columbus councils and help with fund-raising and volunteer recruitment. The Knights have been a major supporter of Special
Olympics since its inception, having donated more than $600 million to programs for people with intellectual and physical disabilities. As well as making large annual donations to Special Olympics, the Knights volunteer their time to assist and promote the organization. The Knights' ongoing commitment to Special Olympics is an expression
of its belief in the "intrinsic worth of every human being." Participation can "transform lives" by giving the athletes a variety of benefits, including health, life skills, values, discipline, socialization and inclusion, noted Blimkie. Special Olympics is the world's largest sports organization for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, providing yearround training and competitions for more than 4.5 million athletes in 170 countries. Both Renfrew and Arnprior have thriving Special Olympics programs. Several events are planned to commemorate the 50th anniversary including the Special Olympics Ontario Invitational Youth Games that will bring 2,000 student-athletes from around the world to Toronto May 14-17. The Knights are promoting a 'draft an athlete' fundraiser that will help participants with their travel, food and accommodation costs. Visit youthgames2019.com/ draft if interested.

Once again, St. Joseph's High School in Renfrew was the fortunate recipient of Try Day funding provided by OFSAA (Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations). Schools receive $700 to be put toward a new activity or game for their physical education program. This year, St. Joseph's added KanJam and spikeball to their program; both activities can be enjoyed inside or outside, and they proved to be a very fun addition for the students. This is the eighth year that SJHS has received the funding - past activities that have been added include tchoukball, pickleball, lacrosse and orienteering.

FLOUR BAGS WERE INDISPENSABLE FOR FAMILY DURING DEPRESSION MOTHER USED THEM FOR BLOUSES, UNDERWEAR AND MORE, MARY COOK RECALLS MARY COOK Column
How often Mother said, "I don't know what we would do without flour bags." When she made that statement, I would look around me, and I would think to myself, 'yes, indeed, where would we be without flour bags'. Certainly, I wasn't the only one at the Northcote School to wear flour bag underwear, but that didn't mean I liked the bloomers any better. I much preferred it when Mother used the bags for many other purposes in our house on the farm. I didn't know that bed sheets came in one piece until the first time I slept overnight at my little friend Joyce Francis' house. Ours had a seam up the middle and one across from side to side. It took four bags to make one sheet. The long white pinnies came right out of the flour mill in Ren-
frew. These aprons often still showed the markings "Pride of the Valley" because Mother wasn't too fussy about bleaching out the printing, as she would be if the bags were being used for something like new kitchen curtains. Of course, there would be rows of rickrack braid around the edges and on the tie-backs to brighten them up, and it wasn't unusual for Mother to make new curtains every spring without laying out a penny. There was always a good many pieces of the braid loose in the bottom drawer of the old Singer sewing machine to fuss them up. Stacked in the back-to-the-wall cupboard, there was a pile of tea towels. Once a flour bag was opened up flat and cut in half, the two pieces were the perfect size for a tea towel. On the very bottom of the pile there would be three or four that were only taken out if we had company. They had been bleached within an inch of their lives, hemmed all around, and on each end, there would be embroidery work done by my sister Audrey, who I thought was very clev-

er indeed. Her favourite design was a teacup and saucer, which I thought was pretty smart figuring since that was what the tea towel would be drying. It was my poor sister Audrey who was given the task of trying to teach me how to embroider. She started me on French knots which I found impossible! But I was overjoyed when I finally mastered them and could move on to other designs on the flour bag tea towels. When Mother would come home with another pile of flour bags, I knew every last one of them would have a purpose. The ones she preferred only had printing on the front, and so the bleaching was much easier to handle. But these were few and far between. Getting rid of the printing, which was almost always deep blue and bright red, was a chore Mother hated. After many washings, they were soaked in Javel water, and they reeked to high heaven. Then the bags had to be washed again and again to rid them of the smell. In the summertime when the days were hot and sunny, Mother spread the bags out on the grass, hoping the bright sun would help get rid of the printing. It was Aunt
Lizzie, my rich aunt from Regina, who told Mother to use lemon juice. Well, that was all right for Aunt Lizzie who Father said could buy out the bank in Renfrew, but for us, lemons were a luxury used only for pies or tarts, and not to be wasted trying to bleach out flour bags. The best bags often were turned into blouses for Audrey and me, and small half-aprons trimmed with ruffled print. They became small tablecloths and tops for cushions for the old couch in the kitchen. And when Mother said she didn't know what we would do without them, all I had to do was look around our old log house at Northcote, and say to myself, "Yes, indeed. What would we ever do without flour bags." Interested in an electronic version of Mary's books?

Veteran WW II 100 years old (Well not really, 97.5 to be exact, but he’d appreciate being rounded up) It’s with heavy hearts we announce the passing of our loving father and grandfather on March 4th, 2019, peacefully & surrounded by love. Affectionately known by many as Grandpa. Predeceased by his sweetheart and love-of-his-life, Madeline (nee Murray). They are doing the box-step together now in the clouds, covering the floor and never passing the same spot twice. Also predeceased by his brother William & sister Isabel Drynan. Loving father of Glenn (Janet), Greg (Judy) & Lisa (Dan). Cherished Grandpa to Kristi (Mark) and Ami (Brandon). Keith was a family man who cherished his time with his children and grandchildren. He was a fixture on his front porch, waving and always ready for a visitor. Often described as a gentleman, he loved to chat and tease. He was well known and loved in Almonte and the Ottawa Valley. Keith grew up in the village of Clayton and it always remained close to his heart. He served in the Canadian Armed Forces during the Second World War, stationed at the base in Jamaica. Most of his life he made a living driving trucks: lumber, bread and ice cream. In his retirement years his dream of opening up Grandpa’s Chips became a reality. He had his secret method for making fries and was told he made the best around. Never a man to be still, he also dabbled in woodworking and that too became a side business. Perhaps all this work was key to his longevity. He will be missed by many. Special thanks to the staff of Orchard View for their loving care. Private family service will be held in the C. R. GAMBLE FUNERAL HOME CHAPEL 127 Church Street, Almonte, Ont. (613)256-3313 For those who may choose to honour Keith with a memorial donation please consider the charity of your choice.

EARLY START FOR RENFREW COUNTY WARDEN RACE JOHN CARTER john.car firstname.lastname@example.org The race for County of Renfrew Warden has started about 10 months earlier than usual. Laurentian Valley Reeve Debbie Robinson announced at the Jan. 30 Renfrew County council meeting that she intends to run for warden in December. She made the announcement after being appointed deputy warden for this year.
She also startled the gathering by indicating current head of council Jennifer Murphy would not be running for a fourth term as warden. In a December vote, Murphy edged McNab/Braeside Mayor Tom Peckett 10-7 to earn a third straight year in the post. Peckett, who was deputy warden for 2018, has not ruled out running for warden again The deputy warden is a ceremonial position that was created
1-800-884-9195 HELP WANTED
in 2016. The deputy warden attends events and functions if the warden is not available. Janice Visneskie Moore, a former warden, was the first deputy warden, serving for a few months in 2017. She shared the post with Kim Love in 2017 when two deputy wardens were appointed because of the number of Canada 150 events. Robinson, a former journalist with the Pembroke Observer, has been a county councillor for four
years. She was first elected in 2006 to Laurentian Valley council, where she is now in her second term as reeve. Robinson said announcing her candidacy early would give her time to get up-to-date on both regional and provincial issues affecting Renfrew County. As the chair of the county's social services committee, she intends to attend other committee meetings as an observer to gain a feeling for all aspects of the operation.

KINDERGARTEN STUDENTS 'GRILL' RENFREW MAYOR A group of local students recently had the mayor on the hot seat - but it was all part of their learning process. Renfrew Mayor Don Eady visited the kindergarten classroom at Our Lady of Fatima Catholic School on Feb. 25. "We invited him in as part of our 'Where We Live' inquiry. The children have been learning all the places that we live: Renfrew, Renfrew County, Ontario, Canada, North America, planet Earth, the Milky Way Galaxy," explained teacher Raina Newberry. "Each child asked him a question about Renfrew. We have been working on how to ask questions. Some of the questions included: 'how many stop signs in Renfrew?', 'how many schools in Renfrew?', 'do you like living in Renfrew?', 'do you hunt?' etc." The mayor answered all the students' questions, and brought each child a Renfrew map and pin.
