Renfrew Legion Branch 148 celebrates 80th anniversary Celebrations include special flag-installation ceremony STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com The revered place of the Royal Canadian Legion branch 148 in the town’s history continued with an 80th-anniversary celebratory supper Saturday. More than 100 people recognized the big birthday party, at which greetings came from the provincial command, Legion zone commander Stan Halliday, and Mayor Sandi Heins. Heins called the “special milestone” indicative of the branch’s continued service to the community. “The Legion is a constant in the Town of Renfrew, through ups and downs, as its members have offered so much to this community,” said Heins. Its presence includes one of the “greatest” small-town Remembrance Day services and recent restoration of the ceno-

A plaque presented by Mayor Heins wishes the Renfrew Legion “much success for many years, as you continue with the great work you do in the community.” PROVINCIAL RECOGNITION A plaque from Zone Commander Halliday on behalf of the Ontario Provincial Command, recognizes the Renfrew Legion for its “80 years of dedicated service to the purposes and objects of the Royal Canadian Legion and to Canada.” A large cake, featuring a tasteful version of the Legion’s coat of arms, was cut by Legion

officials. Entertainment included the Renfrew Highland Pipes and Drums, whose Pipe Major Allan Cole congratulated the Legion and wished them at least 80 more healthy years. The ceremony also featured a $5,000 presentation to the Legion by Ladies’ Auxiliary president Julia Fawcett to branch president Robert St. Michael, and a special installation ceremony with the local Legion’s past Sergeant-at-Arms, Paul B. Allen. SPECIAL CEREMONY Allen presided over a brief Saturday ceremony, to add the NATO and United Nations flags to the local Legion’s colour parade for ceremonial parades, meetings and public displays. The flags were installed in memory of Allen’s parents, Nelson and Elsie. See Page 24

Sparky the safety fire dog has found a home in the area and you’ll be seeing a lot more of him at special events and functions across the region. The fire department from Killaloe, Hagarty and Richards recently joined forces with the Douglas Fire Department and Douglas Lions Club to celebrate his arrival. The fire departments and Lions are key sponsors behind the project, encouraged by the Fire Marshal’s Office to promote fire safety everywhere. For more, see page 16.

Coffee causing traffic chaos LUCY HASS lucy.hass@metroland.com Queue headaches at Tim Hortons in Renfrew are worsening. One of those traffic jams, however, has until September to resolve itself or the town will step in. At its regular briefing session Monday night, Renfrew council asked director of development and works Mike Asselin to advise owners of the O’Brien Road Tim Horton that a solution must be found by fall, by which time the town may own the road leading into the popular coffee stop. Asselin said several alternatives were considered in the past, and the store’s ownership has since changed. “Our position is well documented,” Asselin said. “We’ve encouraged them to come up with a solution to their queuing.” “They need to be able to queue maybe 21 cars in there,” he noted. Now the road is closer to being transferred to municipal ownership, eventually to be extended into the new Hunter Gate subdivision and link up with an extended Hall Avenue. “It has become more and more dangerous out there,” Mayor Sandi Heins said, backing a suggestion by Coun. Bill Ringrose to act now. “The problem hasn’t changed. If anything, it got worse,” Heins said. “This has long been an issue with no movement on it,” Ringrose said, adding he is “prepared to get tough real quick.” When the town assumes ownership, it will also have to name the street, and Monday night the council was surveyed for suggestions. Heins said Earl J. Bennett would be an appropriate name, and Reeve Audrey Green said she would vote for Bennett if she had the chance, but noted the next street should then be named after another deceased councillor, Lois LeClaire. Most of all, she also favoured the name Wilno, to honour the first Polish immigrants who settled the region. Councillor Tom Anderson said a name could be drawn from the cenotaph in Low Square, such as Froats, while Councillor Bill Guyea leaned toward a historic town name such as Burwell or Handford. As a resident of the Hunter Gate Subdivision, Coun. Gail Cole thought a more directive name such as Hunter’s Way Trail might be appropriate. In a light moment, Counc. Kate Windle suggested naming the street after former mayor Lyons Ringrose. Coun. Ringrose said he liked the sound of that, and jokingly slid a coin across the table to the chuckling councillor. All kidding aside, he said he likes the concept of picking someone who historically stands out, “`who deserves our respect.” Council will spend a couple weeks considering its options. Among its resources will be a list, prepared by Heritage Renfrew, of prominent people from Renfrew’s past, a document solicited for an earlier street-naming exercise. The issue is expected to be back on council’s agenda in July.

STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com Councillor Sandra Crozier says volunteers do so much for Admaston-Bromley that it would be worthwhile profiling them during the township’s monthly council meetings. She got the idea from reading an article in Municipal World, and council members have agreed with her. Council decided June 4 that efforts would be made to schedule each of about 10 volunteer groups, for a brief presenta-

tion before council throughout the year. This would give each group an opportunity to summarize their activities and be recognized by council members. These volunteers work for such groups or organizations as the two recreation committees, the Barr Line community centre, emergency management, fire, the agricultural veterinarian unit, Bonnechere Valley 4-H, the library board, Seniors Home Support and Renfrew Victoria Hospital. Crozier said these presentations might

make them feel more part of the community that they already represent. MILLAR Jim Millar has left after several years with the township’s committee of adjustment. He was an instrumental committee member, said Mayor Raye-Anne Briscoe during Admaston-Bromley’s June 4 council meeting. The committee, which now consists of Leonard Chamberlain, Ron Golden, Ross Peever and Brian Yuke, usually investi-

gates minor variances related to alreadyexisting development. Millar was a committee member since 1999. BUILDING STARTS It was a reasonable month of May for building starts in Admaston-Bromley. Dwellings valued at $200,000 and $250,000 were started, in addition to other work related to two camps, two garages, storage and one outdoor furnace. The total construction value was $538,000.

NEWS SPLASH

An aquatic centre is something we want and something we need GLEN GOSLIN Ma-Te-Way Aquatic Centre Committee I am writing this column to bring to the attention of the Residents of the Town of Renfrew the need for an aquatic facility. In fact, such a facility has been on our radar screen since 1967 when citizens first raised money for this facility. That money is still in existence today and available to be utilized to build an aquatic centre. An aquatic facility could well have been added to the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre over the years had Council made it a priority at significant lower costs than it would take to build it today. I support the building of an aquatic facility attached to the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre for a multitude of reasons, only one of which is the economic spin-off benefits that would help our community. Presently, there are many forms of infrastructure grants available of which some are specific to recreational development. Actually, presently available there is 1/3 funding from the federal government and 1/3 funding from the provincial government for a project of this nature, which would leave the municipality with having to raise the other 1/3 funding. Given that the need for an aquatic centre has been well established as a want and a need, it doesn’t take much thought on how the municipal portion of this project could be funded. It is estimated on the high side that this type of facility will cost $4.5 million to build. Given the 1/3 funding scenario the municipal portion would be $1.48 million. If the community raised $750,000 through fundraising, the municipality would have to debenture $750,000 which could be spread over 15 years. This is small considering that the municipality debentured $1.3 million over 15 years to build the present Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre in 1990. One argument put forward by naysayers is that our roads, water and sewer infrastructure also needs help. Well, our water and sewage treatment plant (which include water pipes and sewer pipes) have been looked after and a funding plan for these projects is in place and working. Our roads are being picked up on a needs basis. However, our other needs (aquatic facility) which would make Renfrew a beautiful place to live and raise a family have not been included in the development plan for the Town of Renfrew. As to whether an aquatic facility is a need or a want, that depends on who you talk to. I consider it both a need and a want. In comparison to some of the other projects we have under way, this one has so many benefits, health-wise and community-wise, that it would be appalling not to proceed with its development. The investment would be a drop in the bucket compared to how much we spend on health care each year in Renfrew. We must start investing in preventative medicine and health quality, not just solutions like pouring more money into the health care system.

Renfrew has a shortage of swimming facilities. In fact it has none. As Renfrew is surrounded by lakes and rivers, it is essential that every child learn to swim. What is the value of one life, let alone the many who may be saved and improved in the future by better access to a place to swim? Of what value is the health of those who would have access to a facility where they could improve their health, exercise and heal through low stress physical therapy? An aquatic facility would be a place to exercise and find a sense of community during the cold winter months, as well as a place to cool down and build friendships during our now much hotter summer months. We are eligible for grants. We would fund raise. We would save money wherever possible, and the best and only way to do that is to build an aquatic facility at the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre and take advantage of the operational, land and energy savings. Since this would be the only leisure aquatic facility in our area, it would attract lots of interest from inside and outside of our municipality and would host many events that would help offset the operational costs. All of the projects that the municipality is completing – and one that hopefully will be built – will set the tone and improve the quality of life in Renfrew for the next 30-50 years or more. We are in a good position to be visionary and to determine whether we will be a complete success or a partial one. Sometime you have to spend money to make money and also improve your health and quality of life so that you can continue to sustain economic prosperity. The economy of our community would be aided by an aquatic facility. The health of our community would be helped. Renfrew’s status as a destination of choice would be solidified and our quality of life would continue to be second to none as a result of jobs and economic development created. This would benefit all of Renfrew’s citizens. More importantly, the will of the majority of Renfrew residents who want and need this facility would at long last be addressed. To delay it is to guarantee that construction costs would only increase for a facility that, it has already been established, is both a want and a need. I hope to have convinced those reading this by now of the merits of this project, but I certainly accept anyone’s right to agree or disagree with it. From my point of view, we cannot turn a blind eye to the funding that is available and coming available. If we do it could well be another 42 years of wanting and needing an aquatic facility in Renfrew. There is a quotation from Bill Cosby I heard recently: “I don’t know the secret of success, but the sure way to failure is to try to please everyone.” I think, on projects like an Aquatic Facility as well as on other issues, we must listen to what the majority of citizens are saying.

A Milksnake does it again An encounter with a Milksnake can be very disturbing, to say the very least. I received the following e-mail from Dean Black on Ivy Avenue in Renfrew. Hi Jim: Thought you might be interested in what I had to contend with in my back yard, last night. The neighbour’s (Doug and Lynda Janney) cat, Fritz, was about 15 feet away, basking in the shade when all of a sudden he jumped up and started stalking something in the grass about two feet in front of his nose. The poor guy was startled but he also had a sense that the thing that was slithering along beside him was not something he should take lightly. I approached to investigate and found this snake, with its tail ‘rattling’ away. I consulted the Internet and I am convinced it is one of those Massasauga Rattlesnakes known to exist in Ontario. It was about 40 inches long, had dark brown to black blotches down the back and reddish brown blotches down the sides. It tried to strike a number of times, but its

and arrows of human fear and are killed at every opportunity. The Massasauga Rattler has now been placed on the list of endangered species.

extension was only about 18 inches, so it was quite easy to maintain a stand-off distance. I eventually succeeded in encouraging it to head the other way (away from the house) and toward a vacant treed lot behind our place. This explains very well just how such an encounter plays out. Milksnakes are very aggressive if threatened. Their colour and markings are much like those of a rattler, they vibrate the last few segments of their tail and they will strike at an intruder. They have a tan “Y” or “V” shaped marking on the top of the arrow-shaped head that distinguishes it from the rattler. Milksnakes have no hollow fangs and no venom. At present, the Milksnake is not at risk. However, the Massasauga Rattler is extremely rare in its natural habitat north of Lake Erie and the Bruce Peninsula. As with all snakes, they have suffered all the slings

GIANT WATERBUG NOT IN THE WATER Sue (Flower) Newberry had an encounter with a Giant Waterbug last week. In her letter she says that she was sitting on the beach a Hurds Lake near the bonfire when she felt something crawling on her ankle. She jumped up and a huge ‘bug’ fell to the ground and scurried off into the water. Sue said it was the first piece of Nature that had ever made her scream. Giant Waterbugs are intimidating and aggressive. They are about two and a half inches (6 cm) long, brown in colour with two large compound eyes. Their two muscular front legs are used for grasping and holding prey. Their four back legs are fringed and used for swimming. Giant Waterbugs can fly and are attracted to outside lights, in this case to the fire. They feed on small aquatic life, tadpoles, fish, snails and the larvae of other aquatic animals. Sue had the pleasure of a visit from a Luna Moth to offset the encounter with the Giant Waterbug. The moths, like the bugs, are attracted to outside lights. Speaking of Nature.

I questioned how anyone can be neutral on the issue of killing babies, and was told by the security guard: “I am wearing a uniform.� “Yes,� I replied, “so were the Nazi death camp guards.� After that nothing was said, and more and more pro-lifers entered the tent with their signs. As in other years, astonishingly, we were again ignored by most media; which is absurd, when thousands are marching through downtown Ottawa with pro-life signs, and many motorcycle policemen are holding back traffic as we march through – hard to ignore, except wilfully! Obviously, the media can make no pretence of impartiality. Not surprisingly, CBC Radio maintained their usual silence. But when I heard a news report on our local radio station the next day about a baby kangaroo ejected from its mother’s pouch, and now being nourished by concerned people, I phoned the station and spoke with the manager. I asked him if he was aware that the day before thousands had marched on Parliament Hill in Ottawa. He said no, he was not, and asked what that had. been all about. I informed him that it was our 12th annual march for respect for the life of the unborn child; and he thanked me for letting him know. But when I suggested that (especially in view of the kangaroo report) perhaps our march warranted some coverage, he politely responded that there are many newsworthy events, but that they can’t cover them all! And he thought that this really wasn’t the type of thing they wanted to report on. Interesting priorities, I thought. Anyway, we are not discouraged. God has already won the battle, and we must only be faithful, and the rest is up to Him. The day of victory for the little guy or girl in the womb (justice for the unborn) is sure to come; just as certainly as the end of slavery arrived at last in the U.S., and just as certainly as World War II and the murder of so many finally came to an end.

Now Registering Children Ages 18 month to 10 years old

To the editor: Thursday, May 14 of this year marked a very tragic anniversary in Canada, the 40th year since the ‘legalization’ of abortion. What this means is that from May 14, 1969 to May 14, 2009, 3.5 million Canadian babies were killed by surgical abortion in the wombs of their mothers. And that does not take into account the multiples of that figure killed by chemical abortifacients. Is it any wonder then that we have a deficit of children now, with problems such as the staggeredbell system currently in the news? Our depopulation problem will cause much worse problems yet, as we are increasingly suffering a shortage of young people to work to support an aging population. No wonder that there are those (too many) who listen when a misguided politician like MP Francine Lalonde brings forward her assisted suicide/euthanasia bills I She has done that three times now and, God forbid, but it could easily be legalized in Canada too. On May 14 we had our 12th annual March for Life in Ottawa, with 12,300 people participating. The first one in 1998 had 700 pro-lifers marching, and it has grown exponentially annually. Last year we had approximately 8,000, so 12,300 for this year was quite a remarkable leap; and at least threequarters were young people, a very good sign. We also had many bishops in attendance, archbishops, priests, and even Cardinal Ouellet, the chief Canadian primate of the Church. And there were ‘Silent No More’ women (one-time victims of abortion,’� who so courageously condemn abortion),.pro-life politicians, and dynamic youth speakers, etc. It was a real shot in the arm. After our pro-life Mass at Notre Dame Cathedral (they had two simultaneous Masses, also one at St. Patrick’s Basilica, because of the great numbers of people), we walked to Parliament Hill, and because of the all-day rain, we decided to eat our lunches in the white big-top tent on the Hill (aka, the info booth). We were immediately informed that our prolife signs were forbidden inside, as they were neutral on the abortion issue, and did not take sides.

‘Multi-layered incompetent’ handling of AECL crisis To the editor: As a Canadian and a constituent of Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke, I am doubly appalled and angered by the multi-layered incompetence shown by the Conservative government in their (mis)management of the ongoing crisis at Chalk River. As a Canadian taxpayer, I am concerned by the serial ineptitude displayed by the Conservatives, beginning with the partisan dismissal of Linda Keen, the chair of the Nuclear Safety Commission, for doing her job. At that time Prime Minister Harper felt the production of medical isotopes was too important to permit even a temporary shutdown of the reactor for safety reasons. Since then, the reactor has been shut down repeatedly and the Conservatives have done nothing, even recently attempting to misslead people into believing

this was no cause for crisis. The recent attempt by Lisa Raitt, the Minister of Natural Resources, to turn the halt of isotope production into a career advantage and referring to it as a sexy issue is beneath comment. No one ought to underestimate the global gravity of a global crisis which the Conservatives have shown virtually no initiative in solving. Not only is the absence of badly needed isotopes certain to cause untold suffering and mental distress to patients and their families, but it is certain to drive up the costs of health care delivery as the price of isotopes rises with the increasing demand for diminishing stock supply. I am partcularly dismayed by Cheryl Gallant’s absence from the Chalk River fiasco – from the stop in the production of medical isotopes to the potential

selling of AECL’s commercial business, the Candu Reactor Division. Nowhere has Gallant shown any form of leadership in a matter central to the economic well-being of her constituency. She has not explained the Conservative intentions with regard to the now deactivated NRU reactor or the sale of the Candu Division; she has not addressed the worries of AECL workers legitimately concerned about their jobs; she has not shown any leadership in assuring production of sorely needed medical isotopes. Instead, she chooses to publish in the local newspapers transcripts of friendly staged questions lobbed by her to Minister Raitt. Does Cheryl Gallant (does anyone) consider this an adequate response to a medical and economic crisis? Kevin O’Kane Cobden

New owners revitalize White Lake Marina

JOHN CARTER john.carter@metroland.com When Andra and Peter Bettencourt dropped in for dinner at P.J.’s Restaurant in Arnprior, little did they know it would result in them becoming owners of the White Lake Marina. Thanks to their waitress’s glowing description of “that most wonderful place” White Lake, the couple focused their search for a new home and business opportunities in that area.

JAMES R. ROBERTSON Bromley Historical Society The Bromley Historical is holding a special general meeting at the Osceola Town Hall, on Wednesday, June 24 at 7:30 p.m. The Bromley Historical Society was formed in 2001 to preserve, research, and promote the history and heritage of the former Township of Bromley, now part of the Township of Admaston\Bromley. The group was, in part, an outgrowth of the work of several community members in connection with the Township’s Millennium Committee. Many residents wanted to preserve and record the rich agricultural, architectural, municipal, social and religious history of the former Township. In addition, there was a desire to preserve the old Town Hall in Osceola. Over the past eight years, the Historical Society has been hard at work preserving and renovating the Osceola Town Hall, sponsoring a popular series of public talks on various topics, initiating a collection of family histories associated with Bromley Township, sponsoring various Heritage Day contests, and so forth. While there is still work to be done on the Osceola Town Hall – the windows need to be repaired and a toilet/water system of some type should be installed in order

This year I am late honouring our volunteers, as I wanted to share our year-end statistics with you in April. Our stats showed how much our volunteers do for our organization. Without volunteers we would not be able to provide as many of the services that we do, in fact, our existence would truly be questionable. “A volunteer is a person who believes that people can make a difference – and is willing to prove it” (Anonymous). Many people volunteer in our community either formally through organizations or on an informal basis, helping where they see a need. According to English essayist Sydney Smith, “It is the greatest of mistakes to do nothing because you can only do a little. Do what you can.” It does not take much to brighten another person’s life – a smile, a phone call to see how they are, doing a quick errand, bringing food to someone who is not feeling well. In many small ways we make our communities better places by looking out for each other. Volunteers also make a difference on a larger scale in their communities. Margaret Mead, a noted anthropologist, stated, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed it’s the only thing that ever has.” We see this coming true in our community on a regular basis. Service clubs, church groups, and various groups of people in general in our community raise funds to assist individuals and families and improve the overall quality of life for everyone, auxiliaries raise funds to support their organizations and assist others in the community, social service agencies ensure that people with specific needs get the services they need, sports organizations provide activi-

ties for people of all ages, and arts/culture groups enable us to enjoy many good things in life. Community members often get together to bring new ideas and concepts to our community such as a community radio station and a hospice. Without volunteers to drive these efforts, our community would be a much different place to live. When we look at statistics around volunteering, we begin to see how much volunteers do for our communities. According to 2004 Ontario statistics, 7.8 million people volunteered 791 million hours, or the equivalent of 412,000 full time jobs. Statistics from Statistics Canada in 2005 report that volunteer work and the not-for-profit sector accounted for $14 billion or 1.4 per cent of our gross domestic product. At Renfrew and Area Seniors’ Home Support alone, the total volunteer hours contributed from April 2008 – March 2009 amount to: 5848.15 hours. If we were to multiply this figure by $16 per hour (the current rate used to translate Volunteer hours into a dollar value) the total financial contribution to our program would be: $ 93,570.04. While we do this to prove a point to those making funding decisions in support, we all know that the contributions made by our volunteers on a daily basis are truly invaluable, as you cannot put a dollar value on caring! Volunteers definitely make a difference in our lives. If you want happiness for an hour … take a nap. As this Chinese proverb says: If you want happiness for a day … go fishing If you want happiness for a month … get married If you want happiness for a year … inherit a fortune If you want happiness for a lifetime … help someone else.

Horse Pull, say organizers after more than 50 teams competed June 7 at the DACA Centre. The event, organized by the Dacre Horse Pull Committee, attracted competitors and audience members from all over eastern Ontario and western Quebec. The prize dollars were up in every category. A familiar name topped the heavy horse division. Defending champion Brent Gabie of Kazabazua, Quebec finished first, third and fourth with his teams of Pete and Duke, Chip and Ben, and Doc and Jim. The winning team pulled 10,800 lb. to edge out second-place finisher Ken McNeely of Kemptville with Bob and Mike. Clifford Daly with Chip and Sandy and Tom Stewart with Rock and Roll tied for fifth. Eganville’s Willy O’Brien was seventh with Jack and Pete out of the 18 competitors. Gabie and McNeely also finished 1-2 in the light horse division with Scott and Pete and Marty and Charlie respectively. Ed Rowswell of Elgin (Kelly and Sam) was third, Yves Robert of Masham (Toni and Socka) fourth and Ron Stewart of Shawville (Scooter and Silipor) fifth. In the heavy ponies competition, Pat Langevin of Tweed was first once again with Blaze and Charlie, going out on 6,400 lb. They were followed by Blaine Way of Milford (Dick and Dan) and John Rhode (Bruce and Sarah). Winning Ronnie Kerr trophies were Langevin (best matched), Rhode (best teamster) and Glen Parks of Bancroft (best dressed). Parks won the light pony class with Dolly and Ginger. Way was second and third with Bright and

Baseball A title to Arnprior, B title to host Renfrew STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com The Arnprior Black Sox proved they were the toast of the tourney, while host Renfrew rebounded from a one-sided opening loss to win the B title in its own minor baseball tournament Saturday. The Black Sox thumped the hosts 13-2 in opening-round action at Ma-Te-Way Park, while Pembroke I dismissed the Carleton Place Yellow People 11-2. In other first-round play, Perth defeated Pembroke II 8-2, while Barry’s Bay rallied with three runs in the final inning to tie Petawawa 14-14. However, those teams remained tied based on number of runners stranded on third, and on runners reaching second place. With a tie-breaking coin flip, Petawawa remained on the A side of the tourney, only to lose 14-0 to Arnprior in each team’s second game. Renfrew took a step closer to capturing the B title by scoring five runs in the first inning en route to an 8-0 triumph over Carleton Place. Petawawa advanced to the A final by defeating Pembroke II 12-8, while Barry’s Bay reached the B final with a 7-6 win

Baseball action is reflected off Boden Zvonarich’s glasses as he watches his brother Braden play catcher for the triumphant Arnprior Black Sox. over Perth. In the title-deciding games, Arnprior thumped Petawawa 17-2 to remain undefeated in three starts. The B title went to Renfrew with an 8-5 decision over Barry’s Bay. Trailing 8-5, the hosts mustered five runs in the third to prevail 10-8.

Lots of company at top of slo-pitch standings STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com Two Sunday-night wins left Pro Tyre with the best winning percentage, but not in first place, in the Ma-Te-Way Men’s Slo-Pitch League. Pro Tyre edged Ottawa Valley Glass 15-13 and bettered Subway 21-14 to improve to five wins in six starts to sit second in the league behind front-running Bob Sledz. Pro Tyre’s two-run victory over Ottawa Valley Glass with three homers, with Andrew Dick’s opening-inning four-bagger, Steve Cunningham’s homer, and Stephane Lapansee’s threerun shot in the sixth inning. Les McLeod also contributed four hits, while Ottawa Valley Glass got two doubles and two homers from Frank Meilleur. Teammate Josh Scobie also rapped out four hits. Ottawa Valley Glass’s offence was less potent in its other Sunday contest, but still prevailed, 6-4, over Beimers.

Meilleur’s hot bat continued, with his third homer of the double-header, while winning pitcher Rob Essiambre chipped in two homers and five runs batted in. In a losing cause, Beimers had back-to-back solo homers in the fourth inning from Sean Lecuyer and Mark Wright. Beimers’ bats did a lot more damage in their second Sunday contest, with an 18-10 win over Aikenheads. Leading the offence was Denver Mullen with four hits and four runs scored, while Sean Lecuyer’s five hits included a homer. Other homers went to Aikenheads players Steve Leclaire and Calum McDonald. In Pro Tyre’s second Sunday game, the 21-14 win over Subway, Neil Lockwood picked up another pitching decision in addition to rapping out five hits, two of them homers, and scoring four times. One of the homers was a 300-foot bomb to left-centre.

Teammate Steve Cunningham also had two hits among five hits, while Jason Marshall had four hits and scored four times. Subway got homers from Judy Kelly, Brett Gilchrist and Jeff Mahusky. Teammate Jordan Mahusky had four hits. BOB SLEDZ DEFENCE Bob Sledz sits tied for second place with Pro Tyre after an 8-4 Sunday decision over Zig Zags and a 14-4 win over Subway Monday night. Winning pitcher Breen Agnew recorded four strikeouts and didn’t allow a run until the sixth inning against league-leading Zig Zags. The contest, which took just 50 minutes, finished with two homers for Bob Sledz’ Frank Visneski and three-run homer for Zig Zags’ Brian Vanderploeg. Bob Sledz moved back into second place with the easy win over Subway, which got three hits from Bernie Mahusky.

Leaders for Bob Sledz’ offence were Joran Wall with three hits, including a fourth-inning triple, and three runs scored. Teammate Scott Davis had four safeties. It was a drastically-different Subway offence in a wild 2524 win over Beimers the same night. Subway rallied to win with seven runs in the bottom of the seventh inning, including the winning run on Josh Cybulski’s two-run single, to score Jody Kelly and Mike Woodcock. Another offensive leader was Bernie Mahusky with four hits, including a triple, to finish the twinbill with seven hits. Beimers, a losing cause, got five hits from both Chad Miller and Matt Beimers, and a Jamie Cobus homer. ZIG ZAGS SWEEPS Taking advantage of cellardwelling Aikenheads, Zig Zags moved into sole possession of first place by sweeping its dou-

bleheader 24-11 and 10-8. In the easy win, Mike Jackson homered twice, including a grandslam to trigger an 11-run fourth inning. Other big bats belonged to Mark Smith with a three-run homer among four hits and Mark Simons with four hits. Aikenheads got a pair of three-run homers from Tim Grey. Teammate Derek Scheuneman had a solo homer. In the second game, Mark Smith broke an 8-8 tie with a two-run homer in the top of the seventh. Kevin Pennock also helped out, with three hits and three runs scored. Aikenheads’ Tim Grey had tied the game 8-8 with his threerun homer in the sixth. In the first inning, Ian Kemp of Aikenheads homered. The standings, as of June 15, were: Zig Zags 6-2; Pro Tyre 51, Bob Sledz 5-2, Ottawa Valley Glass 4-3, Subway 3-4, Beimers 2-6, Aikenheads 1-8. - With files from Jeff Rekowski

Sports Wrestling win and three second-place team finishes for Team Renfrew SHANE SMITH Renfrew Amateur Wrestling Club The official results are finally in. Team Renfrew wrestlers travelled to Orillia to participate in the annual Canada East Wrestling Festival May 2. Once again our athletes proved to be great competitors, showing great skill and sportsmanship. I am proud to say these fine athletes are from Renfrew. Gold: Lylyan Warren, Sydney Phillips, Dawson Brown, Amy Siroski, Logan Dyer-Charlebois, Alex Herbert, Joseph Hanniman, Jake Cartman, Zackary Herbert. Silver: Samantha Daynes, Beau Cameron, Athena Mitchell, Mason Dean, Travis MacFarlane, Beau Cam-

Bronze: Ben Stirling, Bryson Lines, Nathanial Smith, Joseph St. Michael, Benjamin McNulty, Brittany Smith, Nathan Plunket, Kaylee Senack, Angel Smith, Cory St. Michael, Jordan Deschamps. Respectable fourth- and fifth-place finishers were turned in by Cole Bennett, Cody Miron, Devon Winters, Sarah Malatesta, Colton Warren, Skylar Eady, Adam Picard, Michael Wales, Ethan Hogan and Jesse Wilson. A few athletes after hard-fought battles and near misses finished just off the podium. We congratulate them for their sportsmanship and hard work.

After spending two days competing against many skilled teams, Renfrew has once again brought home at least one title. TEAM HONOURS The novice and kid girls combined to bring home a first-place banner. Renfrew’s novice and kid boys combined for a second place finish, while the bantam girls and bantam boys had second-place finishes also. Competing against a much larger Matmen Team, Team Renfrew finished second, missing first by only three points. Thanks go out to all the athletes, the Renfrew Amateur Wrestling Club board and the people and businesses of Renfrew who supported the team. We look forward to seeing you all next year.

Packed field for third annual Ted Powell Memorial Race Weekend Organizers expect to equal or better 2008 participation at Calabogie MotorSports Park Perhaps an indicator that Canada’s economy is on the rebound, the Motorsport Club of Ottawa (www.mco.org) has announced a fully-packed car race weekend for the third annual Ted Powell Memorial Race Weekend. It takes place July 24 to 26 at the world-class Calabogie MotorSports Park. “We thought fewer racers might be at MCO’s Calabogie race weekend this year because of the recession, but that isn’t the case,” said MCO president Pat McDermott. “I’m pleased to say we expect as many, or more, than the 169 racers who participated in last year’s Ted Powell race weekend, with at least 25 coming from the Ottawa area. Plus, we have a more exciting track for racers and a great race program for fans.” Dow Honda and Star Motors of Ottawa are back this year sponsoring the race weekend, supporting their products and serving the local performance

The males were located and broken beer bottles were also located. Further investigation revealed one male was on probation with conditions including a curfew. He was arrested and held in custody for a bail hearing, charged with two counts of breach of probation. Another 16-year-old Renfrew man was issued a ticket for being under 19 years and having liquor.

SWORN INFORMATIONS Informations were sworn to in court resulting in charges against a 24-year-old Calabogie man for impaired driving, driving over 80 mgs, and assault with intent to resist arrest.

The main stage features live music and entertainment from 2:15 to 10 p.m. The entertainment includes Dennis Harrington and his Fiddling Friends, a Zumba Fitness demostration and class, two mad science shows, a kettlebell demonstration and class, Blues Nuit and the Headliners Ghost Town Cryers to wrap up the day from 8 to 10 p.m. Family and children’s activities throughout the day are focused around the new Shade Structure and Splash Pad: 3 Air Bounce stations, a Canada Day craft station, tattoo’s and face painting, fish pond, challenge activities, races and games of chance, RCI mini-putt, OPP radar toss, Mad Science Station, candy floss for sale, free Mr. Freezies and more.

McNab-Braeside to celebrate rural culture and heritage McNab-Braeside Township is embracing Ontario’s efforts to make the province one of the top world tourism destinations. In response to the Celebrate Ontario funding program that supports festivals three or more days in length, McNab-Braeside is launching a celebration of its rural culture as well as its historic and natural heritage. The festival, which will become an annual affair, begins June 23, the anniversary of the first McNab

settlers, and continues through to Canada Day. This year’s activities are focused on three days within the nine-day festival. The Braeside River Run is scheduled for Saturday, June 27 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Red Pine Bay on Usborne Street. A celebration of Braeside’s logging heritage on the Ottawa River, the Braeside River Drive will include a display of heritage river craft used in the logging industry, including a barge bunkhouse, tugboat,

sweeper (motorized pointer boat) and reproductions of war canoes. Activities will include Valley Carver reproductions of river craft, ropemaking, story-telling, an Arnprior and a McNabBraeside Archives heritage photo display of Gillies Mill and logging, and a barbecue. Sunday, June 28 features Stretch by the River from 1 to 4 p.m., whose event centre is at Dochart Soccer Park at the end of Duncan Drive. See McNAB, Page 42

Each week we feature animals from the Arnprior and District Humane Society that are up for adoption. # 3344 MAGUIRE Maguire is a neutered one-year-old male who was brought to the shelter because his owners were allergic to him. He is a gorgeous medium hair brown tabby who is shy at first but once he knows you he is quite affectionate. He likes to have his belly rubbed and will purr up a storm. He is playful, curious and an active cat that enjoys the company of other cats. With his longer hair, Maguire will require regular grooming. #3422 HARVEY Harvey is a two-year-old neutered male who was a stray that was brought to the shelter. He is a large cat with a big personality. Harvey is a real love bug, he loves attention, loves to be held and petted and will follow you around like a dog. Harvey would be best suited in a home where he is the only pet, he does not like other cats and will not tolerate them in his space. Harvey likes children, he will stretch out on the floor beside them to be petted. He is quiet, enjoys his naps and sunning himself in the window. Please consider adopting this handsome boy. Supplies the shelter needs: Whiskas meaty selections dry cat food, paper towels, fabric softener, liquid laundry soap and window cleaner. The Humane Society’s Walk in the Park walkathon will be held Sunday, June 21 at Robert Simpson Park. Pledge forms are now available. Call the shelter for more information at 613-6230916. Consider becoming a member of the Arnprior and District Humane Society for $10 single or $25 family. You can call the Arnprior and District Humane Society at 613-623-0916 between noon and 5 p.m Monday to Saturday or visit www.arnpriorhumanesociety.ca.

A green home improvement (NC)—Homeowners are putting their best foot forward to improve the curb appeal of their home while helping to protect the environment. They are redoing their driveways and walkways with permeable interlocking concrete pavement (PICP), which not only looks good, but allows water to filter through the pavement to migrate back into the ground. Further good news is that some counties

offer a rebate program to homeowners who install a PICP driveway. Because PICPs return rain water to the ground, they help drought-stricken areas or places where storm sewers overflow from too much runoff.

How It Works: PICP works like this: A surface of solid concrete pavers is separated by joints filled with small stones that make the joints highly permeable. Water enters

News Canada

the joints between solid concrete pavers and flows through an “open-graded” base; i.e., crushed stone layers with no small or fine particles. The spaces among the crushed stones store water and infiltrate it back into the soil. The joints provide 100 percent surface permeability and the base filters storm water and reduces pollutants.

For Patios and Walkways: Pavers

as well as for parking lots and residential streets. Homeowners particularly like the vast array of colours, shapes, sizes and textures available. You can get rustic stone like pavers or others that look like clay brick. Light-coloured pavers can provide a cooler surface around patios and pool decks. The pavers are easy to maintain and snowplow. In addition, because the snow melts faster on PICP, it reduces ice hazards.

Community

Volunteers are Bernadette McCann House voice in the community GWEN RUTLAND Volunteer Program Coordinator It has been almost a decade since I accepted the role as the Volunteer Coordinator at Bernadette McCann House. The volunteer program was well established when I arrived, and there was a compliment of excellent volunteers. Recruitment was held in the Spring and the Fall, always with a training session to follow. Over the years the needs of the agency and its clients started to change, and consequently the volunteer program started to change too. Recruitment is now ongoing, and is based on identified needs of the Outreach, Residential, and Administration Programs. Volunteers are screened for specific duties, and receive the appropriate training, resulting in the long-term retention of our valuable volunteers. Most of our volunteers have been with us over five years, with some like May Lisk, and Mary Seaman over 10 years, and one volunteer Jane Mottershead, marks her 15th year of service to Bernadette McCann House this year. Volunteers not only provide support to the agency through

the direct hours they give, but some past volunteers have been directly responsible for fundraising initiatives. One in particular, the Calabogie Ladies Golf Tournament has resulted in an annual fundraiser for our outreach office in Renfrew for the past 8 years, providing much needed support to clients in that area. Volunteers are our voice in the community. They share their volunteer experience with others, speak out about the issue, and make valuable connections. Knowing that we can call on these committed women and men, to enhance our programs as drivers, group/workshop cofacilitators, crisis line support, court support, administration, shelter, outreach and childcare support, through public awareness and as committee members…just to name a few of the things they do for us, is comforting and enormously helpful. Today our programs and services are supported by staff, but 30 years ago Bernadette McCann House for Women Inc. opened its doors, and operated with the support of volunteers, an Executive Director, and a very hard working volunteer Board of Valley Wide Real Estate Brokerage 73 Plaunt St. Renfrew 613-433-3626 28 Main St. Cobden, 613-646-9853 38 Alice St. Eganville, 613-628-6388

Agriculture

33 Renfrew Weekender June 18 2009

Multi-million-dollar pigeon scam had no end market One of the craziest Ponzi schemes in recent years involved farmers and pigeons. At least a thousand farm folks got involved in raising pigeons and expected to reap huge profits from selling the offspring to a guy who had no market for them. One man, Arlan Galbraith, ran the Waterloo-based Pigeon King International (PKI). His boyhood hobby was raising pigeons. He attracted investors to buy and raise pigeons and he soon owned a multi-million dollar business breeding pigeons. But it was hard to win over new investors after the farm press started asking questions. Reports say he owes an estimated $40-million to the investors who signed contracts to buy breeding pairs and sell the offspring to Galbraith personally, or to PKI, a company he formed in February of 2007. They also say he owes almost $300,000 of GST because he never satisfied Revenue Canada that he was producing a food product, which would have been exempt. Until two years ago, PKI sent out thousands of yellow full-page flyers to rural property owners in Ontario, Manitoba and to the northern U.S. states. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. But that didn’t stop hundreds of investors from Ontario, the Prairie provinces and 13 U.S. states. I often wondered if anybody would be so foolish to buy pigeons for rather large sums of money. Wasn’t $500 an inflated price to pay for a pair of pigeons?

Most farmers would love to get the poopers out of their barns and sheds. I recall reading an article about a retired dairy farmer who boasted in the article of how much money they were going to make from raising pigeons for PKI. He luckily was the only dummy (that I know of) from eastern Ontario who invested in the venture. The St. Anne-de-Prescott farmer bought 500 pairs of pigeons at $500 per pair from PKI and as a bonus he got another 100 free. It’s kind of like buying 250 pens with your name on it for three bucks apiece and getting another 50 free. At least you can give the pens away. You’re stuck with pigeons. This guy invested his life savings of $250,000 and got 1,100 pigeons. The farmer was told PKI would be paying him $50 per offspring. He was told he could expect to market

about 6,000 birds and make $300,000 a year. The farmer converted his former dairy barn to house the pigeons. He, like most of the investors, wasn’t concerned where the market would be for the birds. PKI contracts were strange. They reportedly had three standard arrangements all based on the same birds. Investor farmers could buy a pair of breeding pigeons for $100 and sell the offspring to PKI for $10. They could pay $250 per pair and sell the offspring back for $25, or they could buy them for $500 a pair and sell the offspring for $50 a bird. Prices fluctuated before the collapse. PKI advertised free birds with a buy back of $8 for offspring. Farmers not only lost their huge investment, they had to destroy the pigeons. They couldn’t afford to feed them. A big puzzling question is why did so many of the honest and trusting Mennonites and Amish folks get involved? Many Pennsylvania Mennonites bought into the scheme and they knew, or didn’t care, that PKI was simply trading breeding stock among hundreds of investors. At least one Mennonite bishop in Ontario is said to have cautioned his flock to keep their investment in PKI low. Any kind of negative press could drive prices down and stop new investors from joining the scheme. One Hutterite colony in Alberta was breeding 2,000 pairs for PKI. That boggles the mind! Before declaring bankruptcy, Galbraith flew the coop and bought a 300-acre property near Cochrane in northern Ontario.

Art for Hospice Renfrew STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com Hospice Renfrew’s ongoing fundraising efforts now feature packages of five greeting cards by local artists. Kim Guilmette and Diana Wakely of Renfrew, Kim Carnegie of Calabogie and Adriana Saba of Constant Lake are the contributors for the just-published packages. They are available for $10 at Hospice Renfrew, Donohue Art & Frame, Aikenhead’s Drug Store, and McPhail & Perkins Furniture. Four cards represent the respective seasons, while Carnegie’s has a summer-like portrayal of the hospice facility located between Bonnechere Manor and Renfrew Victoria Hospital. “It was a thrill to be asked to do,” said Carnegie, “mainly because it was something new in the community that

we needed.” Wakely, who believes everyone needs to cultivate their creative side, has a winter acrylic painting of McDouglas Mill, near the suspension bridge. Also known for her East Coast rughooking creations, Guilmette has contributed an acrylic painting of a Nova Scotia coastal scene. Chairs sit on a deck, just off a rugged coastline, next to heavy forest and open sea in a summer-like scene. One of Saba’s water colours is of tulips from the Tulip Festival; the other’s a rendition of rich-red leaves in the autumn. Saba is also a recent award winner, recognized by the Nepean Fine Arts League, for her painting, Swan Dance. Jo-Anne Dowdall-Brown of the hospice says she likes the fact the cards promote the hospice and artistic talent in the area.

FASCINATION WITH ART

Bonnechere Manor resident and member of the Manor’s artist group, John Munn, shows off his painting to Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MPP John Yakabuski, left, and Manor administrator Shayne Hoelke at meet the artists night May 28. Munn’s work, showing a young boy lying in the grass with a flower, is called Fascination. The gala reception launched a 10-day art show and silent art auction at the manor, the proceeds of which raised money for the Bonnechere Manor Foundation’s auditorium fund.

Pilots and non-pilots flock to fly-in breakfast STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com Jonathan Livingston Seagull was created by author Richard Bach nearly 40 years ago. But it appears many of the famous bird’s thoughts about flight are similar to those of pilots and want-tobe aviators at Champlain Flying Club’s annual fly-in breakfast. About 600 people attended the June 14 event at the Bruce McPhail Memorial Airfield, just south of Cobden, where pilots and others fascinated by aviation flight gather for conversation, food, relaxation, and to see the planes. It was a long trip, said Pam and Iver Theilman facetiously after their flight in a blue and white Cessna 140 from the Bonnechere Soaring Club in Deep River. It’s a chance to meet fellow aviators, chit-chat and meet other people, said Iver, the son of a former helicopter pilot. Cessna 150 pilot Ernie Colbert, who has been flying 55 years, made the trip by air from Arnprior. And he can’t imagine not flying. “Because it separates you from the land animals, and you can look down on everyone,” said Colbert. While so many people only get to look up in the sky, he said he has the privilege of seeing the earth from

on high. “It’s a wonderful privilege to be able to go out and fly,” said Colbert. Once again, Champlain Flying Club members served up a hefty breakfast (for $6) while the public got to visit the small planes landing that morning on the grassy airfield. John Chapman of Chapman Aviation in Arnprior also made the trip while extolling the virtues of flying, like the recent trip when he saw four bears. Pilot Andre Girard of Ottawa flew to Cobden in his two-seater Challenger 2 plane with amphibious floats. He began flying in the 1960s, left flying for several years, then returned to it in the early 2000s after retiring. “It’s just extremely relaxing, and it allows you to go to different places,” he said of the opportunity to land on lakes in places such as northern Quebec and Labrador. For youngsters, just as Brooke Johnston, 9, of Renfrew and her six-year-old brother, Tyson, it was just great being there. “It’s cool, and it’s fun to see the airplanes,” said Brooke, who got to sit in the cockpit of a Cessna 172 Skyhawk flown in Brooke Johnston, 9, of Renfrew has the controls while seated in this Cessna by Claude Quesnel of Crysler, Ont. 172 Skyhawk with brother Tyson.

The Town of Renfrew wishes to advise that maintenance is being performed on the Water Storage tank on Friday, May 8, 2009 to Monday, July 7, 2009. During this time the water distribution system may experience variations in system pressure and potentially disturbance of sediment that would cause red water. If red water is observed residents should run the cold water to drain until the water returns to a clear condition. Variations in pressure may cause disturbances to fire alarm system monitors and other process equipment. The Tank draining will result in flow of water in the ditches on the west side of Gillan Road from O'Brien Road to Hall Avenue and this condition will be monitored by staff. During this period water users must refrain from drawing large quantities of water from the distribution system (flowing water from hydrants). If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the Department of Development and Works, Darl Gaudette at (613) 432-8166. 311493

The 11th Annual Caring For Tomorrow Golf Tournament was a success in every way. Sunshine, perfect temperatures, good spirits, a day on the greens… all added up to a phenomenal fund-raising event for the RVH CT project. And what a day it was! Nearly $42,000 was added to the CT fund, thanks to the enthusiastic support of corporate sponsors such as RBC Financial Group, GE Healthcare and Honeywell, our many local sponsors, the 36 teams of golfers, the bidders in our silent and active auction, and everyone who contributed in any way to the day. This represents a significant addition to the $400,000 raised to date for CT. While we still have much work to do in order to raise the full $3 million price of this new service, the shovel is now in the ground and, thanks to the generous commitment of our community, CT is on its way to Renfrew. Saturday, June 27 – It’s the sweetest day of the year, when the RVH Auxiliary hosts its third annual Canada Day Bake Sale and Strawberry Shortcake Social. Held in Stewart Park at the Presbyterian Church, the sale will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. 280811

Mom & Family

DAGENAIS, Lorraine In loving memory of a dear wife,mother and nanny, who passed away June 10 1996

Delore’s Dad John Ambrose “Jack” Mulvihill. Who passed away June 30th 1953 and Delore’s Stepfather Duncan Justus Seeley. Who passed away Dec. 21st 1976 We’re never ready to say goodbye to someone we hold dear. If it were up to us, dear Dad, We’d always keep you here. But God has reasons of His own and plans we cannot know, and these are always for our good, though it may seem not so. Our arms are empty and our hearts are filled with tears and grief, for we who loved each day with you, now find those days too brief. Yet if we could only heaven see, we’d know you’re happy there, and we would never call you back when such great joy you share. And so we’ll trust you to God’s great care and know some day, once more, we’ll hold you to our hearts again when we reach heaven’s shore.

To us you were so special, What more is there to Delore & Colleen say. Mulvihill Except to wish with all our hearts, That you were here today. They say that time heals everything, But we know it isn’t so, Because it hurts as much today As it did 13 years ago. Love always, Danny, Dani-Lynn, Gerard, John and Scott
