Energy savings good at RVH Renfrew Victoria Hospital’s million-dollar investment to improve energy efficiency has made a return of nearly $70,000 in savings in its first year. “We’re pretty pleased,” says RVH CEO Randy Penney. “We knew this investment made sense on both a financial and an environmental level. It is especially rewarding to see real results in these tough economic times.” A review of the hospital’s utility bills from October 2007 to September 2008 shows a $28,000 reduction in natural gas costs and a $34,000 cut in water costs. The electricity bills also went down. The analysis compared the 2007-2008 billing period with invoices from October 2004 to September 2005 to reflect the hospital’s consumption of gas, electricity and water before the retrofits began in August 2006. Adjustments were made to reflect weather variations and changes in utility rates between the two periods studied. RVH’s green investment included installing a solar wall that provides pre-heated fresh air to the operating room. More-efficient plumbing and lighting fixtures were installed throughout the building, and new occupancy sensors and mechanical controls automatically adjust light levels, heating, ventilation and air-conditioning levels. “This was an investment

“This was an investment that made sense in a number of ways.” Bill Welsh, chair RVH finance committee that made sense in a number of ways,” comments Bill Welsh, chair of the RVH finance committee. “The hospital is realizing substantial ongoing savings in our energy bills, our staff and patients are enjoying the comfort of better lighting and air quality, and we were able to provide leadership in environmental stewardship,” says Walsh. RVH was recognized on a provincial level for its environmental leadership in taking on the $1-million energy retrofit. The local hospital received the Green Health Care Energy Efficiency Award at the Ontario Hospital Association’s annual conference in November 2007. The work was done in partnership with Honeywell, a company that specializes in energy efficiency solutions. The company continues to be a partner in RVH’s ongoing energy-saving project, monitoring the results and providing advice on how to enhance the savings.

GM fire department in compliance JOHN CARTER john.carter@metroland.com The Greater Madawaska Fire Department has successfully addressed a couple of shortfalls pointed out in a provincial review last year. Ontario Fire Marshal’s Office fire protection advisor Dan Koroscil presented Reeve Peter Emon with a certificate of compliance indicating the department has met provincial standards. He notedthat some of the shortfalls, such as the fire prevention promotion and a smoke alarm program, were being done, but just not recorded by the department. The department, as requested, has completed a risk assessment evaluation of major township structures with Koroscil’s help. Coun. Karin Lehnhardt took advantage of Koroscil’s visit to ask how much training is necessary for firefighters. He responded that it takes about two years for a firefighter to complete basic training, with regular follow-up needed. Fire departments need to hold weekly training exercises, he added. “Once a month is woefully inadequate,” he said. “They (firefighters) would fall too far behind.” He said regular training on breathing apparatus can save firefighters’ lives

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

TRIBUTE TO DAD

Tell politicians what you think about prices To the editor: On March 4, 2009 I called a company for a friend to verify a quote on furnace oil they gave him at 79.9 cents. Another friend had just paid 71.9 cents per litre two days earlier, to the same company. During the conversation I was told they do a credit check and if you pass you oil is 73.9 that day. If you fail, it would be an extra six cents per litre. Not all companies follow this practice and I am told it is perfectly legal to do so. This makes no sense to me. I called a second company and they said they had never heard of this practice and furnace oil was 67.9 cents per litre and had been since Feb. 24. So folks, it pays to shop around and ask questions. I think some people do not change companies because they think all companies have the same price, are tied to equipment rental contracts, or don’t want the headache of getting a TSSA inspection done. I would like all readers to contact their MPP for changes to the TSSA Act or to scrap it to give the consumer the power to shop around for the cheapest price. As it stands now, the consumer is getting screwed by this act. This act greatly benefits the oil companies. And contact your MP for changes to the Competition Act, with share your opinion on oil prices. Do not forget to contact your supplier to find out if you are paying extra. Ross Ayotte Smiths Falls

Making it easy to buy food your neighbour grows By LYNN JONES The old phrase “buy the food your neighbour grows” has never been more important. Buying local food can help to address three major problems faced by folks in the Ottawa Valley and around the world today: climate change, resource depletion and global economic turmoil. Fortunately for us here in the Ottawa Valley, there is an innovative new way to buy local foods year round. It is called the Ottawa Valley Food Co-operative (OVFC) and it just celebrated its first successful year of operations at an AGM in Pembroke on Feb. 14. The surprising variety of delicious local foods available through the OVFC includes local lamb, pork, beef, all manner of vegetables, herbs, preserves, baked goods, condiments, herbal teas and more. The Co-op has grown rapidly since its startup a year ago. Membership has increased from 25 to 180 and monthly sales have increased from $1,000 to around $6,000. The OVFC has been nominated for the Premier’s Award for Agri-Food Innovation Excellence. Funded by the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, the award recognizes innovators who contribute to the success of Ontario’s farming sector. The OVFC has a chance to win a cash prize of $5000 as one of 55 regional award winners. It also has a shot at the Minister’s Award of up to $50,000 and a Premier’s Award of up to $100,000. So what is so innovative about the OVFC? The co-op uses the power of the internet to make it easy to buy and sell local foods in the Ottawa Valley. Through its website, www.ottawavalleyfood.org, the Co-op brings producers and consumers together, while reducing food miles, stimulating the local economy and enabling us to “buy

Watershed Ways the food our neighbours grow.” Here’s how the OVFC works. Once a month, producers post all the products they have available on the website. Customers have one week to peruse the monthly offerings and click on items they want to add to their shopping basket, all from the comfort of their homes. Sophisticated software tallies up the consumers’ orders and sends them to the producers. It also produces labels, invoices, and master lists of products sold. On delivery day, a week after the ordering period, producers cooperate to get the food to a central location for sorting where individual customer orders are prepared. Orders are then sent back to consumers via several different delivery routes. Many volunteers help make the system work, acting as route managers and helping to sort orders at the central location. This system is very efficient. Let’s say 100 consumers each order ten different items from producers all over the Valley. Buying these items at the farm gate could require one thousand car trips around the valley. Instead, five route managers make one trip each to the central location on delivery day. They bring items from producers with them and take back completed orders to drop-off points where the customers can pick them up. This saves time, energy and fossil fuels. Efficiency and reduced food-miles are not the only reasons the OVFC makes sense. Co-op members get to connect with local producers and contribute to our local economy. There are social benefits as well: members have fun work-

ing for a common cause that we can all relate to – good local food from a healthy environment and strong local economy! And there is one more little secret added benefit: on delivery day there are always lots of samples of wonderfully delicious local treats for volunteers to enjoy when the sorting is done. The OVFC welcomes new members. Anyone can join! Details are available on the website at www.ottawavalleyfood.org. A one-time membership fee and a small sales commission on each order help pay for expenses of running the co-op. Internet buddies are available for anyone who would like to join but doesn’t use the internet. For more information on this call Christina Anderman, the OVFC Coordinator, at 613-757-3044. The Ottawa River Institute is very happy to have played a role in getting the OVFC up and running. Two years ago, ORI helped organize a weekend workshop at the Marguerite Centre in Pembroke where Bob Waldrop of the Oklahoma Food Cooperative (www.oklahomafood.coop/) taught the nuts and bolts of setting up an internet-based food co-op. After the workshop an enthusiastic group of volunteers came together to develop the OVFC; support was provided during the organizing phase by ORI coordinator Cheryl Keetch. The Ottawa River Institute is continuing to collaborate with the OVFC through a two-year project, funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation, to promote local foods. Lynn Jones is a member of both the ORI and the OVFC. For more information about ORI please visit the website at www.ottawariverinstitute.ca or call ORI President Ken Birkett at 613-3335534.

Nature

The record is in the rings Each growing season in the life of a tree leaves its mark in the ring of a layer of cells formed in the trunk that conduct water and minerals from the roots to other parts of the plant. The growth rings are visible because of differences in the density of the wood produced early in the growing season and that produced late in the season. The early wood has large cells with thin walls; late wood has smaller cells with thicker walls. Within a given growth layer, the change from early wood to late wood is gradual but a clear change is visible where the small thick-walled cells meet the larger thin-walled cells of the next growing season. The thickness of the yearly growth layer will vary from year to year. The amount of light, rainfall, temperature, amount of soil water and the number of frost-free days all play their part in altering the appearance of each layer. The width of the growth layer is a fairly accurate indicator of the amount of rainfall in any particular year. If conditions are good and there is ample water the growth rings are wide if water is scarce the rings are narrow. In arid regions, such as the tundra where the growing season may be only a week or two long the growth rings are almost too close together to count. Some trees in this area may be two feet high and a hundred years old. Each growth ring is different and a study of the rings tells the story of the area that could go back several centuries. In a year when fi re ravaged a forest the event will be recorded in the charred

rings. Which side of the tree received the most heat will show as a dip in the yearly rings. The closer the rings are together the shorter the growing season. Counting the rings will give a fairly accurate time when the event occurred. Western White Pines are very large trees, 150 feet (50 m) high and 5 feet (150 cm) in diameter and will live up to 400 years. When the growth rings of these trees are studied with modern measuring devices they reveal a great deal about the yearly climate conditions on our west coast. Information provided by growth rings of both evergreens and deciduous trees is being used to reconstruct past weather conditions and to predict future conditions. With more accurate knowledge of past climate conditions, which may go back hundreds of years, than is provided by human records which go back only a few centuries, it will be possible to determine weather patterns and cycles for rainfall and drought. This knowledge will be used to manage and allocate the resource of the future, fresh water. Speaking of Nature.

New category for popular Mill of Kintail birdhouse auction Outdoor living is not just for the birds. Garden furniture is the newest category for the Mill of Kintail Birdhouse Auction slated for Saturday, April 18. Now in its fi fth year, organizers of the event are calling artists and craftspeople to donate to the auction. Since 2005, supporters have donated signature birdhouses, and lawn and garden ornaments for auction. The garden furniture category is a new opportunity for both the craftspeople and the buyers. “We’ve had many great submissions in the past four years. It’s always exciting to see the entries for the first time. The diversity and creativity of our

participants is astounding,” says Stephanie Kolsters, museum manager at the Mill of Kintail Conservation Area. This live and silent auction evening boasts the always entertaining auctioneer John O’Neill and MC Charlie Kitts, with musical entertainment Standing Room Only and refreshments. Community support has been outstanding and the evening a proven success since its inception. Funds raised at the auction directly benefit the Mill of Kintail site and museum, recently nominated one of the “Seven Wonders of Lanark County”. This year’s proceeds will benefit the educational programming and site upgrades.

The Mill of Kintail is a premier conservation area in the Ottawa Valley. Owned and operated by Mississippi Valley Conservation (MVC), the 154-acre site features an extensive network of year-round trails, as well as a converted gristmill. The R. Tait McKenzie Memorial Museum, housed in the gristmill, showcases the works

and life and times of Dr. R. Tait McKenzie, world famous sculptor, physician, and physical educator. The conservation area is also home to the MVC Education program, a conservation focused curriculum based program promoting environmental stewardship, cultural heritage appreciation and physical education based on the philosophies of Dr. McKenzie. The organizers of the event are proud to announce that the Dr. James Naismith Collection will be exhibited for the 2009 season. Donations will be accepted at the Mill of Kintail Conservation Area and the MVC administration office Monday to Friday

between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. We encourage that all donations be dropped off prior to April 17. Donations will be accepted on Saturday April 18, the day of the event, at the Almonte Civitan Community Hall until noon. Join them for the event at the Almonte Civitan Community Hall, 500 Almonte St. Mississippi Mills, April 18. Doors open at 7 p.m. For more information about donating to the event, and to reserve your tickets to the auction, please visit www.mvc. on.ca or contact Mississippi Valley Conservation at 613-2592421 or the Mill of Kintail at 613256-3610 ext. 2, or e-mail info@ mvc.on.ca. Donors receive one free ticket to the evening.

It’s a tough time for cow-calf producers, but organizers’ of Saturday’s Eastern Ontario Cow/Calf Symposium hope the advice of key speakers will generate cash savings for local farmers. The symposium is being hosted by the County of Renfrew and Renfrew County Cattlemen’s Association at the Best Western Renfrew Inn from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The keynote speaker is Iowa-based Dr. Simon Timmermans, of Horizon Beef, whom symposium co-organizer Gerald Rollins refers to as a phenomenal speaker. Timmermans will speak about his methods of keeping cows healthy through nutrition and management. He is a strong believer that good nutrition leads to good health and lower costs; a recipe for

success in the livestock business. The theme of bestmanagement practices continues with the other speakers, including Lindsay-based grazing specialist Jack Kyle of the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA). “I think it’s an important event,” said Rollins, “because we’re trying to present information to producers to get them through this slump in the industry. We want to demonstrate ways they can put money in their pockets in different ways.” Another speaker is Ontario veterinarian Dr. Rob Tremblay of the pharmaceutical firm, Boehringer Ingelheim. He will talk about the health protocols and benefits of retained ownership.

The symposium will also feature an update on the Ontario Corn-fed Beef Program, with Dave Murray, and an update from Kerr Farm Sales, with cattle buyer Mike Larssen. “With speakers from many points along the beef marketing chain, it will be a day to learn more about how to move your beef operation forward in these challenging times,” says a news release from the symposium organizers. Sponsors for this program include Alltech, Ontario Cattlemen’s Association, the County of Renfrew, Scotiabank and the Renfrew County Cattlemen’s Association. Snacks and lunch are included. Registration is $25 at the door. For more details, contact Gerald Rollins at 613646-7496.

Farm safety – picture it!

297883

They say a picture is worth a thousand words...and Canada’s leading farm safety advocates agree! An on-line farm safety photo library has been created on www. casa-acsa.ca with 80 photos showing the safe way to work on farms or ranches. The project is being launched by the Canadian Federation of Agriculture (CFA), in partnership with Pioneer Hi-Bred Limited, and the Canadian Agricultural Safety Association (CASA). “This on-line photo library uses positive imagery to reinforce the message of the correct way of working safely,” says Laurent Pellerin, 1st Vice President of the CFA. “Showing a photograph of a tragic incident after it happens doesn’t teach the viewer anything. The real information is in how to do things right. We all know the consequences of doing things wrong.” The photos were donated to the library by numerous farm safety advocates and organizations from across Canada. The high-resolution photos are available in both .jpeg and .tiff formats and are available for use free of charge to anyone for non-commercial purposes in the promotion of farm safety, with appropriate photo credits being given. The photos are intended for use not only by media, but also for individuals and organizations in their newsletters, presentations, and other farm safety promotional and training materials.

It will be 39 years ago this August that I quit a construction job and became a full-time farmer. I was 21 and wanted to farm. Our sandy soil bush farm near Eganville was sold to ARDA and my father and I bought a dairy operation on clay land near Renfrew. The money I had saved up bought the fluid milk quota and the market share quota, which was around $12,000. Now that doesn’t sound like a lot of money today for quota, but it was a lot back then. All my savings went into dairy quota – a very good investment. My father and I had a decent down payment for the dairy farm and money to buy the good-size fluid quota. Farm Credit Corporation (FCC) and a bank lent us the money to buy the dairy farm, machinery and the extra cows we needed to fill the quota. The interest rate on the $37,000 FCC loan was 8-3/4 per cent. It was a high interest rate compared to what FCC charges today. The basic FCC interest rate is 6.1 per cent, but some money is going out for less, and some as low as 3.5 per cent. Our total debt was around $55,000. That was a considerable amount of money in 1970. I know what it feels like to be in debt. By 1985 we were debt-free and fortunate to never having had to pay double-digit interest rates. Barry Wilson, a member of the Parliamentary Press Galley specializing in agriculture, has an interesting article in the January issue of Better Farming. He says Ontario farmers carried a debt load of $5 bil-

to g in m o C

He continues, “In Ontario, the growth of farmer indebtedness has been the most dramatic of any province. From $4.95 billion in 1993, debt had soared to $13.24 billion by the end of 2007. Almost half is owed to chartered banks, but FCC also holds $4.3 billion of the debt.” University of Saskatchewan agricultural economist Richard Gray is quoted in the article saying the high debt load nationally is risky because debt-servicing charges are stable or rising while farm income is volatile. “In the economic turmoil we’re in, it is really impossible to predict what will happen to interest rates over the next while, so I see this as a very scary situation.” Gray said. Gray says that “cheap money,” is one of the reasons for the debt increase, but he notes that farmers in the United States have cut or better controlled their debt load over the years. “That is where this becomes a competitiveness issue as well,” he says. “Canadian farmers are hugely exposed and this is a cost that is higher here than there,” he adds. Yet, the article says, farm sector indebtedness seems to be below the radar screen for most farm and government politicians. At a farm meeting I attended in Arnprior recently, farmers there – the middle age ones who weathered the high interest rates of the early 1980s – said it was the worst time of their life and they hope it will never happen again. Could it?

lion in the darkest days of the early 1980s. As interest rates fell sharply, farm debt in Ontario by 1992 had fallen more than 10 per cent or $500 million, to $4.8 billion. Those were the golden years. Across Canada, and especially in Ontario, 1993 became the turn-around year when borrowing intensified and debt levels began to grow, says Wilson. Since then, national farm debt has been growing inexorably each year to a country-wide debt which in the past 14 years has climbed to more than $54 billion, says Wilson. He wrote: “Even with interest rates at 50-year lows, debt servicing charges are one of the fastest growing farm costs, taking $4 billion last year off the bottom line of an agriculture sector which produced $40 billion in farm gate sales and would have been $2 billion in the red if not for $4.1 billion in taxpayer-funded farm support programs.”

Closure of prison farmers a short-sighted move, says NFU Dave Mackay, president of the Renfrew County National Farmers Union, reports the federal government’s announcement that it intends to close six prison farms operated by the Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) is a short-sighted move. In a letter to Peter Van Loan, federal minister of public safety, National NFU president, Stewart Wells said the decision appears to be based on potential short-term financial gains from the sale of real estate. He noted a consultant’s report in 2007 indicated the government could likely gain $2 million from the sale of two prison farm facilities near Kingston, Ont. The CSC and Minister Van Loan claim the prison farms no longer provide employable skills training to inmates because the number of farms in Canada has declined. Wells said this attitude by the government wrongly implies that farming does not require a considerable amount of skill and professionalism, and also suggests that farming and food production itself is an outmoded and irrelevant activity. Both

suggestions are completely false. “The government appears to have written off agriculture as a fundamental cornerstone of the Canadian economy,” Wells stated. Wells also said rather than close the institutions and exacerbate the overcrowding and gang-related problems in the regular prison system, the CSC should expand and enhance the prison farms as a constructive alternative. Not only do the inmates gain technical and social skills from this program, the prison farms also contribute a considerable quantity of locally-grown food to the institution and the surrounding community. The loss of this locallysourced food will increase the financial burden on taxpayers. Mackay concludes, locally the Renfrew County National Farmers Union at their March meeting instructed that our MP Cheryl Gallant be requested to contact the Hon Peter Van Loan, Federal Minister of Public Safety, requesting him to reverse his intentions to close those prison farms.

NFY says merger will drive beef prices up The decision by the federal Competition Bureau to facilitate a merger between Lakeside (Tyson) and XL Foods will lead to higher meat prices at the retail level and lower prices at the farm gate, says Dave Mackay, president of the Renfrew County National Farmers Union. NFU Manitoba co-ordinator Fred Tait also adds the merger now leaves only two companies – Cargill and XL – in control of virtually the entire beef packing capacity in Canada. “Cattle farmers are already struggling with record low prices,” he said. “This will only make the situation worse.” Tait said with only two companies controlling the market, there will neither be competition nor regulation, and will lead to predictable outcomes which are bad for producers and consumers. “The Competition Bureau has become a joke,” he said. “It is more appropriate to call it the Consolidation Bureau. This decision allows XL to attain a 48% market share of the beef packing industry in Canada, as well as acquiring auction markets, cattle finance companies and cattle insurance companies. It already had control over virtually all the largest auction

markets in Saskatchewan, and this merger strengthens its captive supply of cattle going into its plants.” Tait said the cattle marketing system has become a fullfledged “command and control” operation that will operate solely for the benefit of the two big companies. “The current Canadian government has long expressed the opinion that we should deregulate the market and replace regulation with competition. But it now appears they have abandoned competition altogether. Farmers are left exposed and under the thumbs of these two companies that will dictate the market.” Tait said the federal Competition Bureau allowed Cargill to buy out Better Beef, which was a large Ontario beef packing company and the result of that merger is that cattle prices in Ontario are the lowest in the country. “Now western farmers can expect to see the same thing, and consumers can expect to see higher retail prices.” Locally, the Renfrew County NFU Beef Committee helped the National NFU Executive in trying to stop the merger. “But now we see that our efforts have failed,” said Mackay.

Patients of Renfrew Medical Group (Drs. Clarke, Di Paolo, Langlois, Radke & Wang) If you were born between the years of 1970 and 1991 you may have received only one dose of the mumps vaccine and are therefore considered at increased risk for this contagious viral illness.

Parents’ Corner Promoting Positive Behaviour: No one likes nagging, yelling and punishing, neither adults who do it nor children who are on the receiving end. Here are a few ways to encourage the kind of behaviour that can make the day go more smoothly: organize to prevent problems; keep a routine; decide what’s negotiable and what’s not; keep your language positive; pay attention to feelings; and examine your attitude. Pick up our fact sheet on this topic when you visit. Please call to request further information. Calendars will be available at www.earlyyearsrenfrew.ca or by request to crcren@bellnet.ca.

MARY JOAN HALE March Break is over and we have been having a great time in the ‘Bogie. The young folks and the Day Care Seniors are sporting colourful ‘bling’ thanks to Amber Gorra. Loraine and Julie from the Manor were our gracious hosts at the Community Hall. They welcomed the children as visitors for a combined beading activity on Tuesday morning. They supplied cookies and juice at the break and Bernie Murphy accompanied the singing of Irish songs. How delightful to share an intergenerational St. Patrick’s Day and to clap our hands together in happiness! Cultures throughout human history have used drums for communication, dance, storytelling and celebration. On Wednesday afternoon, we gave the Township staff a break by not having 22 drums playing downstairs. Seriously, the children were ably taught and entertained by Cath Reynolds. We were overwhelmed by the number of children who appeared and like the parable of the loaves and fishes, extra tins appeared (thanks to Dad Moran and daughters). Cath brought several drums: from Africa, a bohdran, and others. Her soft, gentle voice had them enthralled. With empty coffee tins from Cath and Calabogie Lodge and circles cut from a discarded tractor inner tube (thank you Benson Tire of Renfrew), she guided them in the making of their own drums. They clapped out rhythms and then experimented with sounds on their own drums. What beautiful music they made, taking turns tapping out patterns on Cath’s big African drum as others followed. Using hands, pencils and soup spoons, they experimented with sound. Stephen Anthony of Pembroke awed the crowd with his sleight-of-hand and disappearing and appearing wonders on Friday. I wish to thank the wonderful children of GM, visiting guests, the Workshop facilitators and the Day Care friends for making March Break so much fun for me. Museum passes are available to borrow, as well as spring issues of magazines, large-print books, DVDs and French authors. So ‘come on down; the price is right!’

Problem Gambling Prevention Month

Each week we feature animals from the Arnprior and District Humane Society that are up for adoption.

True or False: At a slot machine, a ‘near miss’ means a win is closer than a ‘clear miss’.

#3062 Radar. Radar is a three-year-old neutered brown tabby with white markings. He has grown up at the shelter - he was brought in with his littermates in June 2006. Radar was adopted, but after several months, he was returned to the shelter as he could not adapt to life in a home with a dog. He is very friendly and outgoing and he enjoys the company of other cats. Radar loves to be petted and groomed and he is social and curious. Radar likes to play, but can get a little rough, he would be better suited in a home without small children.

False: ‘Near misses’ are exciting but meaningless. Slots don’t have a memory – the chance of hitting a jackpot is exactly the same on every spin.

The Corporation of the Town of Renfrew

#3300 Beauford. Beauford is a neutered one-and-a-halfyear-old Coonhound mix. He was brought to the shelter in December. Beauford is a large active dog who will require some training. He is very easygoing and he gets along well with other dogs and cats. He enjoys going for walks or runs and will need some leash training, but does well once he gets going. He will require a fully fenced yard and would be best suited with children over eight years. He loves to play with his toys and can be quite silly.

Spring Clean-Up of Streets and Sidewalks The Town of Renfrew has started its annual spring clean up, which includes the cleaning of medians and the sweeping of streets and sidewalks. Other spring activities, such as pothole repairs and the repair of damaged grass along streets and sidewalks will take place when topsoil is available.

You can call the Arnprior and District Humane Society at 623-0916 between noon and 5 p.m. The shelter is in need of dry and soft kitten food, non clumping cat litter, paper towels and Whiskas Meaty Selections. New shelter hours are from Monday to Saturday 12 to 5 p.m.

What can you do to help? • Do not rake or blow leaves, lawn clippings and other debris onto the roadway or sidewalk. • Pick up litter and encourage others not to litter.

answered with a 4-1 triumph two nights later. The Roadhouse outlasted the Loggers 6-5 in game three Friday . FINNIGAN’S 4, MILLER’S 1 Game four was scoreless through the opening stanza and well into the second, thanks mainly to the work of Steve Bowes in the Finnigan’s goalcrease, and Miller’s counterpart Shawn Silver. Finnigan’s eventually drew first blood when two defencemen teamed up for a powerplay goal. Chad Mullen converted a feed from Tom Cobus with 6:41 remaining in the middle stanza. However, the Roadhouse lead didn’t last long. Brennan McGrath broke the ice for Miller’s with an unassisted marker three minutes later. That set the YOUR CHOICE!

stage for an interesting well-played third period. Each team was assessed just four minor penalties in the game, and both sides stayed clear of the penalty box in the final session. Finally, as the clock rolled inside of two minutes to play, Rathbone netted the big goal. After taking setups from Skyler Mullen and Denver Mullen, Rathbone buried a dart in under the crossbar. The Loggers lifted Silver for a sixth attacker, but were greeted by Gould’s two open net insurance markers. The 2008-09 championship was the second consecutive Eganville title for a Renfrew team. Many of the same team members were a part of Renfrew restaurant Coco Jarry’s successful championship quest last year. 294046

PETER CLARK peter.clark@metroland.com A crowd of about 200 people filled the Eganville Arena to witness Finnigan’s championship clinching victory in the Eganville Hockey League Sunday evening. Jeff Rathbone broke a tense 1-1 deadlock when he snapped home the tie-breaking marker with just 1:57 remaining in the third period. Brad Gould added a pair of empty net tallies with 1:08 and 11 seconds remaining to seal the 4-1 victory over the M.W. Miller Loggers, and the best-of-five series three games to one.

Sports Nicholas Crozier of Renfrew Pizzeria, right in dart sweater, hits the Arnprior Snipers blueline in full stride during novice hockey league championship series action at the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre Monday evening. By his side is teammate Mason Lynch (15). Crozier had five goals to lead the Renfrew contingent to a narrow 7-6 victory. However, Arnprior’s Jesse Dick wasn’t too far behind. Dick wired the back of the night on three occasions to keep the Snipers in contention. Mercury Weekender photo by PETER CLARK 2nd ANNUAL

Ma-Te-Way home to novice house hockey playoff thrillers PETER CLARK peter.clark@metroland.com Nicholas Crozier scored five goals, and they needed them all, before Renfrew Pizzeria could finally get past a pesky Arnprior Snipers team in the opening game of the Upper Ottawa Valley Novice House Hockey League four-point championship series, 7-6 at the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre Monday night. Crozier also assisted on goals from the sticks of teammates Nicholas Wright and Brendan Hill to help Pizzeria outlast the Snipers. Connery Campbell posted the netminding triumph for Renfrew Pizzeria. Game two was played Wednesday night at the Nick Smith Centre in Arnprior. Should a third game be needed, it is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. Saturday at the MAC.

RINK RATS NIPPED Petawawa edged the Rink Rat Pro Shop 6-5 in the opening game of the novice B-side final series, also played Monday evening at Ma-TeWay. The Barbers handled all the Renfrew team’s goalscoring with Reid netting a hat trick and Thomas a pair. McKale Van Genderen was between the pipes for the Rink Rats. If the Rink Rats are able to force a third game with a win or tie in Petawawa, the teams will meet in Renfrew Saturday for game three at 9:30 a.m. Three Renfrew house teams will be in action at the Kids for Kids hockey tournament in Kingston this weekend. Barker’s Collision Centre in peewee, the bantam loop’s Bear’s Den, and Dunbar Petroleum in midget are all taking to the ice.

You hear it everywhere—a good night’s sleep is an essential component of overall well-being. If you’re tossing and turning and not getting proper rest, you may want to turn to the RVH sleep laboratory to diagnose what’s at the core of those sleepless nights. Once a referral has been made by a family doctor, a sleep lab appointment is set up. During a night in the lab, a patient wears more than 20 sensors to measure their sleep, breathing, snoring, heart rate and oxygen, the effort to breathe, and leg movements through the night. Rachel Leclaire, a registered respiratory therapist, explains the most common diagnosis is obstructive sleep apnea, a temporary stoppage of breathing during sleep. But there are many other disorders she and the RVH team deal with on a regular basis, such as excessive snoring, daytime sleepiness, restless legs at night, REM sleep behaviour disorders and low oxygen levels at night.

The testing can also help patients with complaints such as constant headaches in the morning, irritability, excessive trips to the washroom at night, or night-time sweating. Anyone having trouble getting to sleep or staying asleep, or experiencing insomnia, is usually having problems because of too much stress in their life, Leclaire says. But she adds that testing is still a good idea, because it may identify other medical factors affecting their quality of sleep. After testing, sleep lab staff score the results and send the information to Dr. Judith Leech, respirologist and medical director of the sleep disorder program. Based on the findings, Dr. Leech then makes recommendations to the patient’s doctor. Treatment can be anything from medication to something as simple as teaching yourself to sleep on your back. Those with sleep apnea may be advised to use a CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway

Pressure) machine, which forces air making a doctor’s appointment and asking through a nasal mask to keep the airways about a referral to the sleep lab. open. While uncomfortable at first, “It really does make a phenomenal patients who need the machine are difference when these disorders are encouraged to use it. diagnosed,” she states. “It we don’t get the “You have four times the risk of having a sleep we need, our quality of life is really stroke if you have sleep apnea,” Leclaire affected—our relationships, work, points out, explaining that the syndrome puts everything suffers.” a lot of stress on the heart. And catching more zzz’s snowballs into improving other areas of your health, she says. Better sleep improves things like high blood pressure and levels of depression. And when you’re well rested, you feel more apt to exercise, which in turn improves your quality of sleep. With our busy lifestyles, Leclaire is finding that many people aren’t making sleep a priority and suffering unnecessarily. “People really are cheating the amount of sleep they’re getting,” she says, advising everyone to turn off their Blackberrys, televisions, e-mail and cell phones and make bed time a priority again. If proper rest is still a problem, Leclaire suggests Respiratory Therapist Rachel Leclaire with a patient monitor set in the RVH sleep lab.

Taking your family’s needs into consideration before buying a home

Buying a home requires a lot of thought… and action!

Buying a new home can be a dream come true for many families. It will probably also be the biggest investment you will ever make in your lifetime. Not only will a home provide a sense of security, but it will also be the primary inheritance you will leave behind for your children. But above all, buying a home is an investment that must be carefully planned and budgeted. That means you might have to push aside your dreams and take a good hard look at reality. For example, what is your current situation, and do you expect it to change in the future? Are you a couple without children? Do you have school-aged children? How many? How old are they? If it is just you and your partner, remember that it’s important for each of you to have your own quiet space to call your own. Do you have family members with physical disabilities? If so, you may need extra space for special equipment. What are your hobbies and interests? Does this mean having a large backyard that can accommodate a pool, or a large living room for a home theatre system? Do-it-yourselfers might want a large garage or basement for their workshop, and artists might want to have a large, bright attic to work in. And don’t forget to make sure that you have ample bedrooms and bathrooms! You also have to consider your finances. How much can you really afford to pay for insurance, taxes, utilities and a mortgage? Don’t forget to factor in the cost of maintenance and unexpected repairs. If you cannot afford to properly care for your home, its value will surely decrease over the long run.

When it comes time to buy a home, most people already have an idea of what type of residence they are looking for, such as a single-family unit, a duplex or a multiple-unit dwelling. Chances are they also have a good idea of their price range. Buying a home can be much easier with a bit of planning and by taking a close look at your specific needs. For example, what are the municipal taxes for the area and which services are available? Hiring an experienced real estate agent is another smart move. These professionals will dedicate their efforts to finding the exact type of home you are looking for. By having an agent do all the preliminary legwork for you, you won’t have to waste time visiting inappropriate homes. But real estate agents aren’t mind readers. That means you should provide your agent with as much information as possible. When you first sit down with him or her, outline all your requirements precisely: the type of environment you are looking for, the approximate lot size, as well as the type of home and the number of rooms. Also mention any other important elements you are looking for, such as a specific heating or ventilation system. All this information will allow your agent to narrow the search to those homes that can meet your needs. Once you have decided on a particular property, your agent will submit a purchase bid to the owner or developer (in the case of a new building). This bid may be conditional on the building’s inspection or on the sale of your current home. Certain requests may also be included in the bid, such as requesting that certain elements be left in the home, such as the dishwasher, vertical blinds or decorative items.

Campbell Monument

Surviving the loss of a parent Usually, the parents are the first to go. More often than not, unless a sickness or an accident alters the normal course of things, the children must mourn their parents. However, mourning the people who gave you life, the people you love who taught you everything, is never easy and it can change a child forever.

An intimate bond is broken with the loss of a mother or a father. With such a strong attachment, the sorrow can be extremely difficult to overcome. Shedding tears, being sad and heartbroken, are normal and essential steps in the mourning process. The grief of an orphaned child is one of the greatest hardships in life. It is strongly suggested that you share your pain with the people close to you. Only by living through your grief can you overcome it. Feeling angry and frustrated, or relieved and at peace, are other feelings that some will experience. If your loved ones were suffering or if you lost them in an event that you feel was unfair, it is quite normal to experience a range of emotions. However, mourning and grief are always unique and personal.

The grief of an orphaned child is one of the most difficult hardships in life.

Sylvester rink knocks on Wood ALEX BAILLON Renfrew Curling Club The last draw of the 2008-09 season for the Senior Men at the Renfrew Curling Club is now over and the lads are into the club playdowns for this week. After that, they will be home shining their golf shoes and hoping for some warm weather. Another great season was brought to a close with the awarding of the Curly Wood Trophy.

Members of senior men’s curling’s Curly Wood Trophy champion team at the Renfrew Curling Club, from far left, are Doug Sadler, Cecil Gilmour, Karl Mann, Dwight Hayward and Gary Sylvester.

This year’s winning skip was Gary Sylvester. Gary was ably supported by vice Dwight Hayward, and second Cecil Gilmour. The lead for the first four games was Doug Sadler, but as Doug was unable to complete the draw, he was replaced for the remaining games by Karl Mann. The team has a record to be proud of. They won every game of the draw except the last one. See GOOD SEASON, Page 30

Wall helps Uxbridge to Central Ontario junior hockey title, tied 1-1 in next round PETER CLARK peter.clark@metroland.com The Uxbridge Bruins and Amherstview Jets are deadlocked at a game apiece in their best-of-seven Ontario Hockey Association quarterfinal series. The captain of the Bruins is defenceman/Renfrew native Jordan Wall, a product of the Renfrew minor hockey system. Wall is in his second season with the Bruins.

Uxbridge, who swept the Lakefield Chiefs to win the Cougar Cup, emblematic of Central Ontario Junior C Hockey League champions, opened the series on the short end of a 4-3 decision in Amherstview Saturday night, before regrouping 48 hours later to pull even on the strength of a resounding 8-1 victory at home. Amherstview captured the Empire League title in five games over the neighbouring Napanee Raiders. The Bruins trailed Saturday night’s opener in Amher-

stview 4-1 in the third period before rallying to close to within a goal. Although an equalizer was not in the cards, momentum certainly was as Uxbridge jumped out to a quick 5-0 lead in game two at home Monday. The series resumes at alternate sites every second night until its conclusion. The calibre of play is similar to that of the Eastern Ontario Junior B Hockey League.

BACKSTOPPING THE WAY IN THE PLAYOFFS Upper Ottawa Valley Belle A goaltender Emily Bromley appears oblivious to everything going on around her, perched at the top of her goalcrease with full concentration on the ring. To Bromley’s left, Karly Millar keeps a potential Gloucester sniper at bay. The UOV gals topped the visiting Gloucester team 5-2 in the Monday night encounter at the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre to climb the next step up the ladder to the National Capital league semifinal. Amanda Purcell had two goals and two assists for UOV. Lauren Lathem added a single marker plus two helpers. Other goals came from April Gillan and Bryanne MacNeil.

Renfrew OPP Report

300305

Continued from Page 35 Medications were stolen from a vehicle parked in a driveway on Usborne Street in McNab-Braeside. The theft occurred at about 4 a.m. March 20. On March 18, Const. Layton Mulvihill investigated a mischief whereby four youths were seen damaging a fence at a church on Raglan Street in Renfrew. The youths were identified, and one male ad-

mitted to being responsible for the damage. The matter was resolved with the church without the youth being charged. The Calabogie Family Grocery store was egged after 7:30 p.m. on March 17. March 21 around midnight Const. Joe Roach was on patrol in Renfrew when he stopped a vehicle for several traffic violations. A 38-year-old White Lake man was charged with impaired driving and driving over 80 mgs. His driver’s licence was suspended for 90 days.

IN MEMORIAM

We miss you, Dad Carol and Faye

I can’t believe it has been a year since you passed away. Not a day goes by that something doesn’t remind me of you. With each season brings a memory of the past. Times spent together making vanilla milk shakes, head cheese, cuddling during thunderstorms, going to the Dairy for ice cream.... You were not only a cherished grandfather to me, but you were also very special to Jamie. He misses his time spent talking with you and taking you for slow, scenic drives. Although you were only a part of your great-granddaughters’ lives for a short time your gentle manner with them touched their little hearts.

Gone are the days we used to share But in our hearts you are always there. The gates of memory will never close. We who love you will never forget.

Lee Sharpe and Family

In Loving Memory of our Daughter

Priscillia Brown, March 21, 1983 - March 25, 2006 Often we think of you, Our hearts are filled with pain, This earth would be a heaven, Could we hear your voice again. But still we don’t forget, To hear your voice and see your smile And greet you at the door, But all we can do, is go And tend your grave, And leave behind tokens of love, We like to think, when life is done Wherever heaven may be, That you’ll be standing at the door In heaven to welcome us. You are with us, in our hearts forever,

CL14675

IN MEMORIAM

Lucas Blokland May 7, 1983 - March 26, 2007 A dearly loved son, brother, grandson and friend

Don’t think of him as gone away his journey’s just begun, Life holds so many facets, this earth is only one. Just think of him as resting from the sorrows and the tears In a place of warmth and comfort where there are no days and years. Think how he must be wishing that we could know today How nothing but our sadness Can really pass away. We think of him as living in the hearts of those he touched... for nothing loved is ever lost and he was loved so much. Forever loving and missing you Luc

KILBY JAMIE

In memory of Chris Cunningham, who passed away suddenly on March 28, 1990. I left without saying goodbye, I never wanted to leave. They welcomed me in, They took me beneath their wings, As I walked beside them to eternity. I looked back to see your tears I tried to go back, But they promised me that you would be okay. They told me that we would be together again. When I saw your tears leave, I knew they had placed A warm memory inside your mind. It brought a smile to your face. They said you need the memories And they showed me how, All I have to do, is think of you, And you begin to think of me.

Never Forgotten, Loved Forever. Cory

Toastmasters a great opportunity By LYNNE KOBUS Perhaps you remember Ralph, Roxanne, and Rover the talking dog. Ralph and Roxanne are standing at the window, watching Rover tearing around the yard, leaping, jumping, and BARKING! (Rover never barks – he is a talking dog.) Rover: Ruff-ruff, bow-wow, yip yap, yip yap! Roxanne: Ralph, what’s wrong with Rover? Ralph: I don’t know. Maybe he’s sick. He never barks. He only talks. Roxanne: Maybe we should try to catch him then take him to the vet. Ralph: Good idea. We have to find out why he’s acting like a dog. (Minutes later outside.) Ralph: On his next circle, you block him and I’ll tackle him. Rover: (running high speed) Ruff-ruff, bow-wow, yip yap, yip yap! Roxanne: Okay! Here he comes! I feel like a football player. Grab him Ralph! Ralph: Got him! Great blocking Roxanne! Maybe you should try out for a team. Rover, calm down! Stop barking and tell us what’s wrong or you’re going to the vet. Rover: Ruff- ruff, bow ….. the vet? Okay! I’ll talk. Fifi’s owner is planning to visit Renfrew Toastmasters to see what it’s all about. That means I can visit Fifi from 7 to 9 p.m. on Monday. Hopefully Fifi’s owner will decide to join. I don’t know why he wouldn’t. Renfrew Toastmasters is a fun group of people, and they learn speaking and listening skills that are useful at work or anywhere. (Rover gets away from Ralph and Roxanne and starts bounding around again.) Rover: Ruff-ruff, bow-wow, yip yap, yip yap, Fifi, Fifi! Roxanne: Well Ralph, I guess you don’t have to worry. Rover’s not sick. He ’s just love- sick. Ralph: I’ll help Rover out and call Fifi’s owner to let him know that Renfrew Toastmasters meets Mondays 7 to 9 p.m. at 236 Hall Avenue. He can attend a few meetings to decide if he wants to join. I’ll give him numbers for more information: 613-649-2950 and 613-432-7557. P. S. from Renfrew Toastmasters: We will host a speaker with a great presentation on Leadership Skills Monday April 20 at 7 p.m. Sue Dalati is a manager with Canada Revenue, and a former District Governor of Toastmasters. She will share some of her expertise.

47 Renfrew Weekender March 26 2009

Getting to know … Pascal Leclaire By Rob Brodie OttawaSenators.com You’re not in Columbus anymore, Pascal Leclaire. After spending the past fourplus seasons in the shadow of the Ohio State Buckeyes in a football-mad city, Leclaire has quickly warmed up to life in Hockey Country. He hasn’t played a game yet for the Ottawa Senators but he’s already becoming a familiar face to fans around the capital. “Since I’ve been in Ottawa, I’ve been stopped and talked to by more people than I was in four or five years in Columbus,” said Leclaire, acquired March 4 from the Blue Jackets in exchange for centre Antoine Vermette. “You can pretty

much go under the radar (as a hockey player) there.” Leclaire took a break from rehabbing his broken ankle at Scotiabank Place to give ottawasenators. com readers a glimpse into a personality that figures to be hit with Senators fans real soon. Q: Who was your goaltending idol growing up? A: Patrick Roy. I liked Ron Hextall when I was a kid, but being from Montreal, Patrick Roy was the main guy. Him and Marty Brodeur are probably my two all-time favourites. Q: If you weren’t a goalie, what position would you like to play? A: In my dreams, I would like to be a high-scoring forward. A highly-

skilled centre man. Q: If you could play any other sport for a living, what would it be? A: The last few years, I really got into soccer. I watch the English Premier League quite a bit now. I just think it looks cool. The big soccer stars look cool. I like playing tennis, too. I’m really bad at it but I like the sport. Q: Do you have a favourite English Premier League team? A: I like Manchester United. They always have the good players. I was a big David Beckham fan. I got the chance to see him play live when (the L.A. Galaxy of Major League Soccer) played in Columbus. I also like Cristiano Ronaldo, so that’s why I probably like Manchester. Q: When you were in Columbus, which Senators player would you have least liked to face in a shootout? A: Probably Jason Spezza. He’s got that long stick and some pretty good moves. Q: What do like most about the idea of playing in a Canadian city? A: The attention around hockey. Just that vibe, that hockey is the main thing in the city and the people really care about it. I find it’s a great challenge and really motivating to do well. Q: What will be like to hear ‘starting in goal for the Senators, Pascal Leclaire’ for the first time?

A: It’ll be pretty fun. Obviously, I want to do well. As a new guy, you want to gain the confidence of your teammates and that’s the most important thing for me. Q: What was it like last year to represent your country at a world hockey championship played in your home province? A: It was pretty exciting. I played three years of junior hockey in Halifax, too (for the Mooseheads), and the first part of the tournament was there. It was definitely the best group of players I’ve ever been involved with. It was a huge honour and it was exciting to be a part of that. Just to put that jersey on … it’s pretty special to play for your country. Q: So you still feel a connection to Halifax? A: I still keep really close ties with my billet family and I talk to them once a month. When I got there, they had a son my age, so that it made it a lot easier for me. We’re far away and sometimes, it’s hard, but I try to see them once a year. My billet mom – actually both of the parents – were huge Ottawa Senators fans when I was a kid. They had to switch over to Columbus but now they can go back to their roots. They’re pretty excited for me. It’s going to be easier for them to follow me. Q: What’s your favourite NHL

city to visit? A: I like going to L.A. It used to be coming to Montreal and doing that swing, Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal. That was fun. They’re big hockey markets and there was a lot of attention on the game. I like really going to Chicago, too, and New York. All the big ones. L.A. is fun because of the nice weather. You get to eat breakfast outside. Q: If someone made a movie about your life, who gets to play you? A: Everybody probably says Brad Pitt, right? Probably him. I think he’s a cool dude.

Senators on TV

Philadelphia Flyers Saturday, April 4 at 7 p.m., CBC

March 28: at Atlanta, 7 p.m. (no TV) March 29: at Tampa Bay, 6 p.m. (Sportsnet) March 31: at Florida, 7:30 p.m. (Sportsnet) April 2: at Boston, 7 p.m. (Sportsnet) April 4: vs. Philadelphia, 7 p.m. (CBC)

The skinny: Less than two years removed from the bottom of the Eastern Conference standings, the Flyers are looking to take the next step after reaching the conference final in 2008. Jeff Carter has risen to elite status among NHL goal scorers and is a contender for the Rocket Richard Trophy. He has long surpassed his previous career high of 29 goals set last season. After recording a career-high point streak in December, Flyers captain Mike Richards continues to play an important role in the Philadelphia attack, topping the team in assists. Plus-minus leader Simon Gagne adds further balance to the offence, which recently regained the services of Daniel Briere.
