Danie Emon makes a point during the two-hour meeting at Calabogie Public School Tuesday night before members of the Renfrew County District School Board. Emon was among parents on hand to say there has been decreasing support from the board, especially since the board changed the kindergarten to Grade 6 school to a K-Grade 3 facility in 2006. It appears the board will announce later this month that the school will close this year.

Little hope left for little school STEVE.NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com The clock is ticking. During a two-hour meeting at Calabogie Public School Monday night, parents made their case for keeping the elementary school open while applauding the excellent education their children have received. “Personally, my daughter has had five years (here) and she’s had the best five years,” said parent Marlene Schaly, whose daughter Dayna will graduate from Grade 3 this year and attend school elsewhere in the fall. In 2005, the school was among those earmarked for closure, but was given reprieve, partly because the Renfrew County District School Board benefitted by $103,000, once grants and operating costs were determined. Among schools closed were Ross Mineview and Horton. However, grant formulas for rural and remote schools have changed, and enrolment has sharply declined at Calabogie Public since 2006, when the kindergarten-to-Grade 6 facility was reduced to a K- Grade 3 school. “We lost students to other schools because you chopped the grades ... It aggravates me that nothing has been done,” said parent Tracy Wilson. The number of students fell from more than 20 to seven in 2006-07 and has stayed in single figures. That has been despite efforts, pointed out trustee Marjorie Doering, to obtain Best Start funding to operate a daycare within the facility and draw

TASTE THE SAVINGS … WITH

more students to the school. Over the past three years, the school’s net operating savings have gradually dropped, from $74,000 to a projected $59,003 this year. And recent calculations show the school would have a small loss of $1,600 next school year. Furthermore, only two youngsters have been identified as students for next school year, and one would only be attending every second day. “It’s not our decision. It has to go to the trustees,” maintained Roger Clarke, the board’s director of education, about any decision to close the school. “The next board meeting is at the end of May, so I suspect this conversation will be part of that agenda,” he added. Clarke also said closure “would obviously be a decision the board would have to make in the near future.” Local librarian Skippy Hale said she didn’t understand the apparent move to close, given a local population explosion and the probable need for a local public school within a few years. She also said this was a special place to learn. “I have seen wonderful things happening here,” she said. Knowing about 20 people were at Monday’s meeting, including five members of the public board, the media, school principal Dagmar Stonehouse, three council members, and several parents, one parent asked, “Where’s the rest of the community?” “They’ve given up,” he was told.

Benefit organized for local man struck by Hodgkin’s lymphoma The community is being invited to rally behind a local family struck unexpectedly by illness. A benefit to support Curt Spitznagel, who is undergoing treatment for Hodgkin’s lymphoma, will be held Saturday, May 23 in Renfrew. The fundraiser will run from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Armouries. Spitznagel’s brother-in-law, Fred Forster, said family and friends have organized the event, which will include a barbecue, bake table, candy floss, popcorn, refreshments, and children’s activities, games and face painting. There will also be silent and live auctions, the latter featuring Kenny Dillabough. Forster explained that Spitznagel has been off work since October. He has been taking chemo treatments, so will be laid up for some time yet, he added. The well-known masonry expert lives with his wife and two boys in the Pucker Street area. The event will not only rally the community to

MP announces recreational funding The following is a news release, issued Tuesday from the office of Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant. Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant is pleased to announce that project applications can now be submitted under the Recreational Infrastructure Canada (RInC) program. Local hockey rinks, arenas, swimming pools, sports fields and other community recreational sites throughout the riding of Renfrew-NipissingPembroke will be eligible to receive funding for facility upgrades and repairs thanks to the new federal government infrastructure program. “By investing in recreational infrastructure in places like Palmer’s Rapids and Horton Township, our government continues to show our commitment to supporting communities,” said Gallant. “Our recreational facilities are vital social and athletic hubs where families, friends and neighbours can come together to get fit and to have fun.” The 2009 Federal Budget – Canada’s Economic Action Plan – provided $500 million over two years for the Recreational Infrastructure Canada program to support upgrading and renewal of recreational facilities in communities. Projects will be selected on the basis of merit and construction readiness. The governments of Canada and Ontario can each fund up to one third of a project’s total eligible cost up to a maximum of $1 million each per project, with recipients providing the remaining balance. “The renewal of recreational infrastructure is critical to preserving and creating jobs today while revitalizing our communities for tomorrow,” said MP Gallant. “Investments in recreation build better communities, and stronger families.” To maximize the number of recipients able to take advantage of the 2009 construction season, projects submitted before 5 p.m. EST on May 29, 2009, will be reviewed immediately with approved projects to be announced in June 2009. The rehabilitation must be materially concluded by March 31, 2011. Projects submitted after May 29, 2009, will be assessed and those approved will be announced in a timely fashion on an ongoing basis. For details on project eligibility and how to submit an application, please refer to the www.cherylgallant.com under the federal government programs page.

raise money for the family, it’s a show of support to give them a boost during a difficult time, Forster said. While most benefits are held in the evening, organizers deliberately scheduled the event for mid-day to enable families to attend, he said.

“It’s in support of a family; it will have a family atmosphere,” he said. “Holding it then gives the kids a chance to attend.” Donations to the cause are welcome. Call 613-432-9310 for more information or to offer help.

Gerry Lalonde of Stantec Engineering looks on as soils expert Kris Martinette of Golder Associates discusses Horton Township’s landfill expansion before Horton council May 5. Weekender photo by STEVE NEWMAN

Great time to expand the landfill STEVE.NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com Horton Township’s landfill site has lasted more than 30 years, but it won’t last much longer. It’s expected the Eady Road facility will be full by next year, unless the township successfully pursues a grant for a compaction project. That could expand the current site’s shelf life by

a few years, says Horton chief administrative officer Mackie McLaren. Horton Township has already circulated letters to neighbours living around the landfill site, prior to a public meeting June 2 to discuss the project and any public concerns. The new project, at a cost of about $150,000, would basically double the size of the current landfill. Because

of the size of the expansion, a full environmental assessment is not required. In 2007, Horton Township staff and council members thought they might face a $500,000 bill for a 40-year expansion to the landfill. Current landfill expansion plans may create a shelf life of 20 years, speculates McLaren. See CURRENT, Page 21

Bob Boyer of the Renfrew Lions Club talks to Miss Teen Ontario East contestants during Renfrew’s Great Downtown Garage Sale May 2. The three young ladies were spreading the word about the Teddy Bears of Hope campaign. The Eastern Ontario goal is to obtain 2,000 new or gently-used teddy bears or other stuffed animals as part of the Miss Teen International’s total campaign goal of 80,000. Donors are encouraged to submit a toonie with each bear to facilitate shipping costs. Stuffed animals can be dropped off at the Renfrew Recreation Centre before June 1.

Ahhhh, the city life … for a little while I don’t get back to The Big City much any more. After first moving to Renfrew County after the ice storm of 1998, I was back to Ottawa as regular as clockwork on weekends. But life has changed. A different life. A wife. A child. A family. A hobby farm with cats, dogs, horses and cows. Quiet places to walk, run, paddle and see the stars. Things to write about after avoiding a traffic jam of six cars instead of 600. A life that doesn’t need to be in the urban sprawl on a regular basis anymore. Don’t get me wrong. There’s plenty attractive about The Big City. I wish I still had in my virtual backyard, like the Gatineau Park, my world-class masseur, my favourite ski, cycle and running shops, bookstores, Ottawa Bagel, friends, swimming pools. And the list could go on. What I don’t miss is the noise, the pollution, backyards the size of postage stamps, too many people telling you to have a nice day without looking at you, and the temptation to buy, buy, buy. Almost every time I return from the city, my wife gives me this look that says: “Now what did you

buy this time?” Well, in my most recent visit to the big city, for an Ontario Community Newspapers Association awards banquet, the place of call was the provincial capital. And my purchases were as varied as ports of call at Yonge Street, St. Lawrence Market and The Skydome. I’m not a big fan of Toronto, but I have to admit there’s still lots to like. And even more to absorb, if only because it’s different and because Toronto makes me appreciate what we have away from the city. Sitting directly above home plate, but five levels up, during a Blue Jays-Athletics game was different.

So was a walk along Yonge Street the Friday night. A police car had pulled over and one of the officers was telling a fellow not to do something. Farther down the street, a young fellow was standing on the sidewalk holding out a cup. Minutes later, well after 9 p.m., I found a bookstore full of many old and some new books. After buying a new one for $10, I asked the Yugoslav immigrantstore operator if the French music from France playing on his CD player was for sale. Ten dollars, he said, before writing down the name of one particular singer for me to remember, since the music was his own compilation of numerous artists. The next day I was about to enter, according to Food and Wine magazine, one of the world’s best 25 markets. As if I didn’t have enough problems keeping my wallet in my pocket, St. Lawrence Market invites one to buy. The succulent smells. Sixteen-grain bread. Thick, thick lamb and pork chops. Cheeses. Wines. Jewelry. And much, much more among its 120 vendors. I came away with afford-

able jewelry for my wife and a $3.50 bottle of juice. Yet, before I even stepped inside, I ran into Uzeir Huskic, a former Yugoslavian citizen and retired engineer who was looking after his wife’s stall of scarves near the entrance. But what I really saw was his book about the prospects for peace in this world. We talked for a while before I paid $12 for In The Name of Peace. Another way to see the city is to run through it, and stop when you want. Which is what I did in the downtown core the Friday afternoon. The Saturday morning I was back, running as the city was awakening. There were fewer sounds and people, but continued evidence of the homeless or others who appeared to be merely surviving. Running down one street, I saw a haggard, old, longbearded fellow pushing a wheelchair and reassuring his passenger: “I won’t steer you wrong.” What a metaphor on life, I thought, smiling and continuing my run. For we all need reassurance, now and then, that we’re headed in the right direction, wherever we live.

bullied have and repercussions for bullies. “We’re trying to reach both the kids being bullied and the ones doing the bullying,” she said. Hawkins said she would return and treat the students to a concert and cake if they took her words to heart. Teachers assured her that bullying had decreased at the school, so she returned with a guitarist to treat the students to a high energy interactive concert in the gymnasium. Furthermore, Charlie’s Restaurant, where Hawkins played that weekend, supplied cake for the close to 300 students. Hawkins knows all about bullying as she has children with disabilities who were bullied. She has also worked with children with disabilities and at-risk kids for several years. “So this program was a natural for me,” she said. She said RCI teacher Bob Bouchard encouraged her to get involved with anti-bullying programs in schools. She has also been involved with anti-bullying programs at A.J. Charbonneau and St. John XXIII. As well as the stage presentation, Hawkins does follow-up work with students, including class writing, discussions and leadership initiatives. She is hopeful other area schools will also allow her to share her anti-bullying message with their students. “I love this area so much,” she said. Queen Elizabeth principal Margaret Maloney said that her students were “thoroughly entertained and engaged” in Hawkins’ performance and activities.

Nature

They arrive early and leave early

The Downy Yellow Violet starts to grow shortly after the snow melts from the soil. They grow, bloom and produce seed in eight to ten days and then they are gone for another year. This plant grows in a variety of habitats almost contradicting one another: moist to dry, clayey to sandy, upland tolerant hardwood stands and hardwood swamps. In the Ottawa Valley they grow in sandy loam on rocky outcrops usually in clumps. The bright yellow flowers of this perennial herb are the first to catch our eye. Closer inspection reveals brownpurple veins near the base, five unequal petals, and the two lateral petals are bearded (show dark lines on the petals). The lower lip petal protrudes from the flower centre and is spurred. The spurs are tubular, sac-like, hollow projections just below the flower to help support the petals. The single flower is located on a short stem, hairy above the stem leaves. The above ground stems are stout, brown and tend to be woody. The plant grows from

coarse, well planted fibrous roots. The flowers may bloom at any time during May or June. The bright green leaves of the Downy Yellow Violet are spectacular and provide an excellent background for the bright yellow flowers. The leaves at the base of the stem are usually single, and rounded to heart shaped. The stem leaves are near the top of the stem and are broadly eggshaped to rounded and pointed at the tip. The fruits of the Downy Yellow Violet are egg-shaped, hairless to wooly white capsules: the seeds are pale, have a hard cover and are about an eighth of an inch (2.5mm) long. Historically the flowers, roots leaves

and seeds were used in medicine. Aboriginal people used a medicine made from the roots to ease sore throats. The leaves, flowers and seeds are eaten by wildlife. The eastern cottontail and the white-footed mouse use the plant for food from the time the snow melts until it is too deep for the animals to dig down through the snow cover. Birds, ruffed grouse, wild turkeys, woodcock and darkeyed juncos feed on the seeds during the months when there is no snow on the ground. There are about eight violet species grow in Eastern Ontario. They can be found in almost any area where plants get enough moisture and sunshine. The Hooked Spur Violet has a purple to violet-blue flower with five unequal petals and has numerous spreading stems. The Northern Blue Violet has a deep violet to pale lilac flower with five unequal petals and has a fringe of hairs along the leaf margins. The Sweet White Violet has a white, fragrant, hairless flower with five unequal petals, the leaf stalks are red-

The Northern White Violet has a white fragrant flower with five unequal petals and with red dots on the leaf stalks and flower stems. Other species include the Kidneyleafed Violet, Wooly Blue Violet and Canada Violet. All have five unequal petals and are found in moist hardwood stands. Look for violets on any walk you may take through and hardwood stand of trees. The five unequal petals and the blue, white or yellow flowers help identify them as violets. Speaking of Nature.

There are a million ways to conserve energy, so why don’t we?

By LYNN JONES “There must be a million ways to save energy, but let’s start with a hundred”. So says a poster for the Second Annual Energy Conservation Week being held in Ontario May 17 to 23. Ho hum. Haven’t we been hearing about and promoting energy conservation on and off for years now? And while it is true that there are many ways to save energy (and reasons to do so) here in Ontario we seem to have been going in the opposite direction for the last few decades - acquiring new ways to “spend” electricity with electric garage door openers, rice cookers, wine coolers, patio heaters, leaf blowers, paper shredders, pencil sharpeners, cell phone and iPod chargers, large flat screen televisions, computers, printers and so on. We’ve been getting better at spending electricity with appliances too. Shop for a new appliance and you will see mostly bigger and fancier refrigerators, washers, dryers and stoves with the occasional smaller, Energy Star model tucked away in the corner. Then there are air conditioners - one of the biggest electricity guzzlers of all. In recent years “central air” has been added to many homes, and truckloads of room sized air conditioners are snapped up at the first onset of hot weather each spring. Air conditioners use an enormous

amount of electricity, so much that they have shifted the occurrence of peak electricity demand from winter to summer in Ontario. When I was a kid, nobody’s home or car was air conditioned. We used fans, or rolled down the windows. Now we artificially cool our indoor environments and create large quantities of greenhouse gases and other pollutants in the process. Per capita electricity consumption has been steadily rising all over the world in recent decades. Here in Canada, we are among the largest per capita electricity consumers in the world. Swimming against this tide is possible. There are brave pioneers who have shown that it is possible to survive quite nicely on far less electricity than most households now use. But for the time being, serious energy conservation is practiced by a very small minority of Ontario households. For anyone new to energy conservation, there are countless ways to do it. Just type “top 10 ways to save energy” into Google and you will come up with 15 million results (really). Or you can check out the Energy Conservation Week website (www.energyconservationweek.ca) for 100 suggestions. This list includes a wide range of possible actions from the no-cost items like “hang my clothes outside to dry” and “turn off lights when not in use” all the way up to “Install a

solar hot water heater”, a big ticket item requiring a lot of effort and expense. Solar hot water heaters are a good thing! Widespread use of solar domestic hot water heaters could save a lot of electricity in Ontario. Water heating accounts for one-fifth of the electricity bill in many households. Traditional hot water tank systems are wasteful and inefficent. Solar systems are readily available and can save about half of the energy used to heat water for a typical family of four each year. Homeowners interested in finding out about solar hot water heating are invited to attend a free information session cosponsored by the Ottawa River Institute in Renfrew on May 25 at 7 p.m. The venue is the Renfrew Public Library. Financial incentives for installing a solar hot water heater will be covered in the workshop and are also clearly explained on the website GoSolarOntario.ca. So yes, there are lots of ways to save energy. And solar domestic hot water heating is worth a serious look for those with the time and financial resources to consider it. But the truth is, most people don’t really get interested in energy conservation until electricity starts to cost a lot of money. That’s what we observed in 2002 when electricity prices in Ontario spiked as a result of the short-lived deregulation experiment. Ottawa River

Institute was just starting out back then and our first few energy conservation workshops were full to capacity. When price caps were brought back in, attendance rapidly dwindled. Experience in the State of California also bears this out. According to the Washington Post (February 17, 2007), California has held its per capita energy consumption essentially constant since 1974, while energy use per person for the United States overall has jumped 50 percent. A combination of aggressive energy conservation measures and sound government policies are responsible. The high price of electricity in California is one of the main drivers for the widespread adoption of conservation measures there. The per kilowat hour price in California is more than double the price in wasteful states such as Alabama that consume much more electricity per capita. The per kilowatt hour price in Ontario is comparable to that in the most wasteful states. It is too bad that despite some really urgent reasons to consume less energy, most of us in Ontario don’t take it very seriously. Higher prices for electricity in the future will make us all a lot more interested in conservation. Until then it’s a hard sell.

OPEN HOUSE PRIVATE SALE

Seniors medical centre, housing options explored JOHN CARTER john.carter@metroland.com Greater Madawaska council has formed a committee to examine the seniors’ housing options in the township. Council also agreed April 16 to strike a committee to review the future of the township’s medical centre. The two committees will be made up of five members each, two from council and three from the community. Anyone interested in joining the committees should contact the township office by May 29. Reeve Peter Emon said the housing committee will be tasked with looking into the feasibility of seniors’ accommodations in the township. “Fairfields (in Eganville) has been reasonably successful,” he said. “We should explore that model.” “There is money out there,” he added, noting that on March 26 the province announced significant new expenditures for affordable and supportive housing for seniors as part of infrastructure and poverty reduction measures. “If it (funding program criteria) fits in this area, we should be aggressive in seeking it,” he said. “You have to have the numbers to make it viable,” said Coun. Karin Lehnhardt. She said there has been talk about a seniors’ housing complex in the Griffith-Matawatchan area, but there aren’t enough seniors in the area. “Maybe they (committee) will come back and tell us we’re 10 years too soon,” said Emon. “Maybe not.” He said he envisioned the township’s role as providing land or services and help in accessing funding as ways to encourage non-profit groups or private developers to develop affordable housing. Emon said seniors’ housing is an important issue in the township as its population is almost one quarter seniors and the

over-45 age group is the fastest growing. When seniors in the area decide they can no longer maintain their homes, there is little for them to rent or buy in the township, he added. “We need to determine if we can keep our seniors living in our community longer.” MEDICAL CENTRE Emon said the township needs advice on the future of the medical centre, because it has been a “significant plus” for the community since it was built in 1975. Having a doctor available there is a factor when people decide to move to the Calabogie area, he noted. However, Dr. Max Buxton has had trouble recruiting a second doctor for the centre, even though the demand is there, he said. Therefore, the Greater Madawaska health committee should look into attracting a nurse practitioner to operate out of the centre as well as investigate doctor recruitment, he said. Emon suggested the committee meet with Whitewater-Bromley Community Health Centre officials to determine if their model is feasible in Calabogie. The committee should also meet with Champlain Local Health Integration Network officials to discuss health care service delivery options and opportunities for the centre, he added. Emon said the committee should review funding opportunities to upgrade the centre’s information system and make recommendations about governance of the centre. The township might be able to receive funding if it forms a not-forprofit group to run the centre, but rumours that Greater Madawaska would receive a million dollars in funding if the province took it over are not true, he stressed. He also cautioned that the medical centre is not likely to be a money maker for the municipality, but keeping it operating is a plus for the community.

Need for track inspection debated Greater Madawaska council has decided against ordering a site inspection of the Calabogie MotorSports Park (CMP) until it hears whether staff feels it is warranted. Coun. John Pratt urged council April 16 to authorize the inspection before the track opens for another season to ensure the

it is compliant with site plan regulations. “It’s just good business practice,” he said. Reeve Peter Emon argued council should wait until committee meetings in May to ask staff if they feel an inspection is needed. “I hear complaints too, but I also get people complaining we’re harassing CMP,” he said.

helped run the water ski program at the camp for the past three years. CAMP CONNECTIONS “We are trying to raise a significant amount of money,” Martin says, to help with tuition costs for several youth. About 90 per cent of FOCC’s total budget annually ($20,000 in 2008) goes toward tuition fees for campers. Campers have the opportunity to push themselves physically through athletics and morally through dozens of team games, to overcome challenges with their peers and counsellors, and to learn how to live life to its fullest at Camp Connections, Yandt noted. Campers are taught to trust and rely on one another and for one week, are immersed in an environment that shows them how to incorporate Christian morals into day-to-day life. Yandt will be flying out to Victoria from Ottawa June 15.

Please find me a home Each week we feature animals from the Arnprior and District Humane Society that are up for adoption. #3247 Nessa Nessa was found in September on Bell Street. The oneyear-old spayed female was just a kitten when brought to the shelter. She is a very pretty girl, with gorgeous markings. Nessa has grown up at the shelter, she is shy when meeting new people and will need sometime to adjust to a new home. She loves the company of other cats. She is curious and playful with them. A quiet home without small children would suit Nessa best. Once Nessa knows you she likes to be petted and will sit on your lap. If you have room in your home and heart for Nessa, please consider adopting her. #3364 JOEY Six-month-old Joey, a grey tabby, was found with his sister living in someone’s garage. Joey is an extremely sweet little guy, loves attention, is very affectionate and friendly. He is a well socialized kitten that is easy to handle; he loves to snuggle and be held. Joey is very vocal, he likes to coo and meow and talks up a storm. Joey is playful and curious, he can be cautious in new situations but warms up quickly. He loves children, especially if they will play with him. Please consider adopting this happy-go-lucky little boy. Supplies the shelter needs: Non clumping cat litter; Whiskas meaty selections dry cat food; liquid laundry soap; canned dog and cat food. Pet Valu in Arnprior and Renfrew are holding a cat litter drive for the humane society on May 22, 23 and 24, all donations are appreciated. Consider becoming a member of the Arnprior and District Humane Society for $10 single or $25 family.

Agriculture

A remarkable agriculture teacher impacted the lives of many Former principal Don Whillans would give a failing mark to Ontario Agriculture Minister Leona Dombrowsky on letter writing. The same week Don Whillans passed away last month, Dombrowsky had a letter to the editor in the weekly Ontario Farmer. She starts the letter with, “I am writing in response to the April 14, 2009 ...” Had Dombrowsky been a student of Don Whillans and had written those words he would have emphatically told her not to tell the recipient of her letter that she was writing the letter ‘because they can see that’. “They can see you are writing the letter! You don’t have to point that out,” he’d tell her. Don Whillans was my Grade 10 agriculture teacher at Eganville and District High School in 1964. He was a very good teacher. He was also the principal. I liked him. You didn’t forget things he said. I remember more from the agriculture class than I do from the other subjects I took in high school. Of course, agriculture was a topic I knew and it interested me. Chemistry, Latin, French and algebra were like foreign subjects. Whillans was a farm boy from Cyrville (near Ottawa) and graduated from Guelph Agricultural College with a Bachelor of Science in agriculture. For several summers he worked in the Arctic as an entomologist. Entomology is a branch of Zoology that deals with insects and butterflies. One cold afternoon in October of 1964 he took the EDHS agriculture class on a field trip to show us the fine arts of plowing a field. We were bussed barely a mile to a field outside of

Eganville where Mills Warren was driving a grey Fordson tractor and pulling a two-furrow plow. Warren would drive very slowly so the class could walk behind and see the furrows turned over. Every now and then Whillans would have him stop and we would examine the texture of the soil to find organic matter such as decayed grasses or straw stubble. The furrow depth of the sandy loam soil would be measured with a ruler. Whillans showed us that if the plow went any deeper, it would bring up subsoil. He pointed out certain parts of the plowed field where bits of subsoil were showing. We learned not to bring up subsoil –plants will grow in topsoil but not in subsoil. Subsoil is usually a lighter shade of brown or yellow. It’s the part of soil below the depth of plowing. Farmers with clay soil refer to it as hardpan. It can be rock hard when it’s dry.

Look in today’s

Subsoil or hardpan contains little or no humus. Keeping subsoil undisturbed is something that stuck with me all these years—45 to be exact. Just plow the topsoil. No deeper. And that might just be five inches. I recall Whillans teaching the class how to write a letter correctly. It must have been part of the agriculture curriculum. We were taught about the different parts of a letter. The date, the inside address of the person you are writing, the salutation or the greeting, the body of the letter, the complementary close and the signature line. The salutation begins with the word “Dear” and always includes the person’s last name. We were told “Dear Sir” is okay but you never write “To Whom it May Concern”. And you never start a letter with “I am writing to you about…”. “They can see that,” he’d say. Whenever I see a letter that starts with “I am writing this letter to you …” or, “I am writing in response..” I think of Don Whillans. How should our provincial agriculture minister have started her letter? She could say “I take exception to the April 14…..” “There are a few mistakes in..” “The article on…. needs a correction..” It’s so much better, wouldn’t you say?

Have you eaten today? If you have, take a moment and thank a farmer

Current landfill almost full in Horton Township Continued from front “Engineers have projected 15 or 16 years, but we’re hoping for 20,” said McLaren. After that, it’s anyone’s guess where garbage will be headed. As McLaren puts it, the township could be facing a crisis, with no place to put garbage, or embracing technology’s new answers to waste management. Either way, the present expansion is of major importance to the township. “Expansion is the only alternative,” said McLaren. “We looked at other alternatives, like shipping garbage away, but the cost of tipping fees far outweighed the cost of expan-

The township’s 55 acres features 10 acres for landfill, with the remainder used as a control perimeter for any leachate. Meanwhile, Horton has applied to the federal-provincial Infrastructure Stimulus Fund for $200,000 to recompact its current landfill. If successful, Horton might gain three or four more years of space. Otherwise, it’s expected the landfill will be full by the summer of 2010.

The Art of Being Green Festival will take place on July 10-12, 2009 at the Middleville Fairgrounds in Lanark Highlands. Art of Being Green showcases local, provincial and national efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, engages the public on renewable energy issues and explores the significance of adaptation in our everyday lives. The Art of Being Green Festival features include a large exhibit area, vendor trade show, workshops, interactive displays, children’s programs, entertainment and local food. Volunteering for the Art of Being

Green Festival is a great way to build your volunteer experience, get involved in your community, meet new people, and showcase Lanark Highlands. It is also a great way for high school students to complete their Community Involvement hours that are necessary to obtain their Ontario Secondary School Diploma. Over 100 volunteers are needed for various positions in the following areas: Information and/or Souvenir Booth, Greeters, Stagehands, Runners, Festival Office, “Waste Watchers”, Children’s Program Area, Parking Attendants and Traffic Control. Volunteers can sign-up to work the weekend of the festival and/or the week leading up to the festival. Each volunteer will receive a free Art of Being Green t-shirt and meal coupon for the

Friday night BBQ. All volunteers must be at least 14 years of age and volunteers aged 14 to 17 years must have a parent or guardian’s permission to participate. All volunteers will be required to participate in an orientation Saturday, May 23 at 2 p.m. or Thursday, June 4 at 7 p.m.

Chartwell Seniors Housing has announced that, in celebration of Chartwell’s National Appreciation of Seniors initiative June 16 to 18, it is encouraging seniors to participate in the third annual Senior Star singing and musical instrument competition. “Over 10,000 enthusiastic fans cheered on more than 1,000 participants in 71 competitions from St. John’s to Vancouver Island. Chartwell’s Senior Star contest has grown to be the largest celebration of seniors’ talent in Canada,” announced Brent Binions, President of Chartwell Seniors Housing REIT. The competition is held across Canada in Seniors Centre’s, theatres and Chartwell residences. It is open to anyone who is 65 and over and a Canadian resident. Contestants do not have to be living in a Chartwell residence. “If people have the perception that somehow talent is lost over time, the competitors in Senior Star refute that notion in the most convincing manner. Go to your local Chartwell residence and ask them for a copy of the DVD from the 2008 finale, and you’ll be convinced,” said Binions. Those wishing to compete can pick up a registration form at their local Chartwell Seniors Housing residence today, or they can visit www.chartwellreit.ca to find out more information. At the regional competitions, contestants are given a maximum of five minutes to sing a song, play an instrument, or do both, and their performance is videotaped. Musical accompaniment is provided to singing contestants, if required. A panel of three judges, made up of musical experts, local government officials, and media representatives, choose the top three local contestants, each of whom will be recognized with a Senior Star trophy. The first place winners then have a chance to be one of the ten competitors in the National Final. The ten finalists are chosen from the first-place winners of the 71 Regional Competitions by a celebrity panel of judges, and will compete in the National Final, held at the famed Fairmont Royal York Hotel, in Toronto, Oct. 19, 2009. Dinah Christie, Canadian entertainment icon, was the host of the National Final in 2008. “Canada applauds the courage of those talented Seniors, over

On April 5, our 7 year old son Connor had a stroke. Throughout this very difficult time we still feel truly blessed to have the support of such wonderful people and organizations within Renfrew and surrounding areas. We would like to thank all of our family, friends and neighbours for their words of encouragement, prayers and donations. We would like to thank the Lions Club of Renfrew, the Rotary Club of Renfrew, Renfrew County Bus Lines, Reina DeVries and the staff and customers of The Renfrew Mercury, Elaine Young and the staff of OPG Pickering Hydro and Black & McDonald Contractors of Pickering for their generous donations and support. A special thank you to Steve and Julie McKay who in their time of grief with the tragic death of their son Chris reached out and donated a Wii to Connor. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. To my colleagues and friends at St. Joseph’s High School, as well as Connor’s school, Our Lady of Fatima, I am always amazed with how generous and supportive you all are. We appreciate everything, the gift cards, donations, and especially the heart-felt letters from the staff and the beautiful cards from the students. We would like to thank Father MacNamara and the parishioners of Our Lady of Fatima, Pastor Lorne Andrews and Calvary Pentecostal Church and the Calabogie Bible Church for their continued prayers for Connor. I believe medicine will make Connor better, but prayers and medicine will make miracles happen. We would like to thank the Renfrew Victoria Hospital Emergency staff and the Renfrew County Ambulance service for the care they gave Connor. We will be forever grateful to CHEO for saving Connor’s life and everything they are still doing to assist Connor in his recovery. And finally we would like to thank our parents, Jack & Marlyn Pinkham and Bill & Ina Guyea and our sisters, Tracy, Rhonda & Cindy (and families), along with Cyndie (and family) for being with us through the darkest days and the journey that follows. We appreciate all you have done for us and continue to do to help us through this difficult time. We are very fortunate. There is a saying that I think of when I think of all the love and support we have received. ”When life gives you a hundred reasons to cry, show it that you have a thousand reasons to smile.”

Thank You Lisa, B.J., Emma, Connor, and Autumn Guyea (Dorzek)

of a and who 10 18,

There is a family who misses you dearly In our homes where you used to be There is a family who wanted to keep you But God willed it not to be You left many happy memories And a sorrow too great to be told But to us who loved you and lost you Your memory will never grow old.

KASABOSKI, John C In loving memory of a dear husband and father who passed away March 16, 2007 Sad are the hearts that loved you, Silent the tears that fall, Living our lives without you, Is the hardest part of all. The special years will not return, When we were all together, But with the love within our hearts, You will walk with us forever. Sadly missed by wife Jean and family Bill, Rose and Fay

We love and miss you Nancy, Chris and The Lord is My Shepherd Scott

HUNTER, Bert In loving memory of a dear father, grandpa, and great grandpa who passed away May 18, 1999.

He is gone but not forgotten, And, as dawns another year; In our lonely hours of thinking , Thoughts of him are always near. Days of sadness will come o’er us, Many think the wound is healed, But they little know the sorrow, That lies in the heart concealed

It seems like only yesterday, But 10 years have passed us by... A golden heart stopped beating When you were put to rest God broke our hearts to prove To us He only takes the best! Always loved and remembered by Helen and family

Sadly missed and loved always, Danny, Marina and family

HUNTER, Bert In loving memory of a special dad, pappy, and father in law who passed away May 18, 1999

Bernice and Terry

We thought of you with love today but that is nothing new. We thought about you yesterday and days before that too. All we have are memories and your picture in a frame. God has you in His keeping We have you in our hearts.

The Angels sang “Amazing Grace” The Lord came down and touched your face He held your hand and Whispered low “Come with me, it’s time to go” The gates of heaven opened wide The Angels lined up side by side A special gift was on it’s way The day God took You away Always loved and remembered by Helen and family

Here’s How It Works:

Last year, children from Renfrew visited CHEO 1703 times.

Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!
