She always wanted to be a firefighter

STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com Sarah Felhaber is just 19, but ready to pursue her dream of being a full-time firefighter. The Eganville-area resident says she has wanted to be a firefighter for as long as she can remember, but especially after her family was directly affected by two blazes. “Two of my aunts and uncles died in a house fire in ’62 and our house burned down in ’94,” recalled Felhaber. Just a little girl then, with her dad out of town, she recalls following her mom back into the burning house several times as a few items were salvaged. Years later, she says her dad still gets upset about the loss of the home he built. “You don’t want to see someone else go through it, so if you can help out in some way .... ” said the daughter of Ronnie and Colleen Felhaber. For most of the month of June, Felhaber has been finishing up her pre-service firefighting studies at Brockville’s St. Lawrence College with a placement at the Renfrew Fire Department, with Fire Chief Guy Longtin. “It was kind of a mixed reaction,” admitted Longtin about crew member response to her Sarah Felhaber looks to a career in firefighting.

and some of the younger guys who are fine with it. “I have no problem. If they can do the guys’ job, all the power to them.” Years ago, when women were first introduced to the fire-fighting workforce in Ontario, Longtin says there were issues. “There were doubts about them being in a nontraditional role. It was always just the guys, just the guys,” said Longtin. “But things do change. You think it’s not going to change, but they do change, and you notice a whole different attitude in the station itself (with her around).” Like a little less swearing, says a smiling Longtin, although a week or so ago Felhaber touched a live wire during an exercise and a few expletives filled the air. “Ever since I can remember, I’ve always wanted to be a firefighter,” she explains of her desire to be a firefighter. This year she was one of five females in the St. Lawrence College’s pre-service firefighting class of about 35 students. The curriculum, developed by the Ontario Association of Fire Chiefs and the Office of the Fire Marshal, blends theory, lab practice and field placement to prepare grads for entry into the firefighting profession.

Sarah Felhaber up the ladder at the Renfrew Fire Department. Mercury Weekender photos by STEVE NEWMAN

Pursuing her dream Continued from front “I was always more with the guys and in the physical sports like hockey,” she says of her youth. “It was just kind of a natural thing.” Even this past season she played men’s hockey at St. Lawrence College until playing for the college women’s team out of the Cornwall campus. The team also did well, winning its share of games and some tournaments. About 5-foot-8 and 150 pounds, she’s also a little stronger after taking part in a fitness program that included running and weight training. “I definitely got stronger,” says the 19-year-old, whose favourite activities include hunting, fishing, dirt-biking, riding her own motorcycle, and softball. “You have to have the right attitude,” says Longtin of a firefighting career. “If I had an opening here, I wouldn’t hesitate to take her on.” The Renfrew Fire Department has 11 full-time firefighters, including the fire chief, and 15 volunteer firefighters who are paid per diems for training and calls. “I’m sure Sarah’s going to get a job somewhere … just watching her around here and how she fit in,” said Longtin. “Her attitude is good.” In the past, women have applied for positions at the Renfrew Fire Department, but never completed the physical tests, said Longtin. In McNab-Braeside’s volunteer fire department, staff includes two females. Felhaber’s last day at the Renfrew Fire Department is today.

Editorial Congratulations, graduates his is a week of hope across the region – a time when students everywhere celebrate past achievements and set their sights on new goals. Graduations are stepping stones, markers that carry us from stage to stage in life. For some students, the jump is from elementary to secondary school. For others, it is a leap from high school to university, college or a place in the working world. For a uniquely-inspiring group – adult education students – graduation reaffirms an already-strong work ethic and staunch desire to transition through ever-changing times. The Renfrew Mercury Weekender congratulates all of our graduates and wishes them the very best as they move forward. Individual success is a wonderful thing, but the greatest reward comes from any effort that also benefits others. Active, caring citizenship has long been a hallmark of Renfrew and area, from Eganville and Cobden to Calabogie and the Pontiac. To our 2009 graduates, we send a simple message. Embrace your world now. It’s yours to enjoy and yours to make a better place for all of us. We’ve got confidence in you. Lucy Hass

Road naming suggestions all the way from Tennessee Editor’s note: The Renfrew Mercury Weekender posts stories regularly to its free website yourrenfrew.com and its content reaches around the world. The following letter to the editor arrived by e-mail last week, before the story ever went to print. The Mercury is embracing new media to serve you best. Hi Lucy, I enjoyed your article this morning – found it on Google Finance. Being completely disconnected from your traffic situation (I’m in Tennessee) gives me a unique vantage

point (I think) for the naming of your road, should the city take over. (Since I don’t have to deal with that traffic, It’s easy for me to have fun with this.) If you take suggestions from the general public, I suspect you may find yourself having to edit a lot of expletives from people who actually have to wait in that line. Following are my unattached-tothe-situation road name suggestions. For what it’s worth … and for fun, how about: Queue street Backed up street

Get in Line Street No Cutting Street Are you kidding me Street %#$@#@ street Coffee Jam Street Double Double Street Must Have Donut Street If I had a Snow Plow I’d Clear this Street I hope my suggestion will help the city find a fine name for their new street! Kirk Bates Cleveland, Tenn.

Ma-Te-Way Aquatic Centre Committee Renfrew-area resident Kim Acres Scott reflects on her family’s swimming experience. Yesterday evening, while looking through the window to the pool at the Nick Smith Center in Arnprior, I found myself musing over how quickly and competently our two daughters have learned to swim. In their current class of approximately 15 swimmers ages 7 through 10, our youngest daughter, who is easily the smallest and youngest, glances behind her, interrupting her smooth breaststroke, to make sure she is ‘keeping the line’. Three years ago,

she was reluctant to release hold of her Dad’s shoulder in the pool and hesitant to splash around without the help of her water wings. Now, she breaststrokes double the length of the pool, albeit sometimes, ‘cutting the line’ to keep up with the older swimmers, with confidence and agility. Our older daughter, always keen to take instruction, swims these lengths, concentrating on perfectly performing the lesson she has received. At the end of each length, we can see her smile, satisfied with her accomplishment. The hour swimming lesson is a twice-a-week routine for us this spring, a routine which everyone in our family looks

forward to. Several years ago, we enrolled our children in the swim program knowing that the ability to swim was a skill they would use for life and believing the associated physical fitness would promote lots of summer activity. Not only did we get capable swimmers who love the water, but we have watched our daughters grow in confidence, in ability to take instruction, and in respect for others. Going from Dad’s secure arms, to a life jacket, and then to swimming under and above water independently is a very visible and tangible feat. This feat has built confidence. A pool full of kids and instructors

can be loud and intimidating, but this environment has encouraged careful listening and mimicking of demonstrations. While our girls bounce and splash in the pool, they socialize and patiently wait their turns. This group lesson has also been a way for our swimmers and us to meet new families and to learn of many other great programs offered in our community. As the warm weather approaches, we look forward to the many hours that will be spent swimming and enjoying the pool during the summer. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could have a swimming facility in our community for all to enjoy!

Many ways, communities to celebrate Canada Day JOHN CARTER john.carter@metroland.com A full evening of Canada Day events, climaxed by the popular lakeside fireworks display, have been planned for the Calabogie waterfront.

EGANVILLE FESTIVITIES In Eganville, there is a Canada Day breakfast and garage sale, bicycle parade, Bonnechere Idol show, cake-cutting at noon, free pontoon boat tours on the Bonnechere River every 45 minutes from noon on, and fireworks at dusk. The Bonnechere Museum is holding a fossil hunt beginning at 10 a.m. ADMASTON-BROMLEY Admaston-Bromley is continuing its annual tradition of Canada Day celebrations. The wards 3 and 4 recreation committee hosts the township barbecue at the municipal building on Stone Road at noon Canada Day.

update on the Olympic Torch Relay, which will pass through Douglas later this year, and musical entertainment by the CCM Group and The Helferty Family. Visitors are encouraged to bring their lawn chairs and sit back and relax. PRE-CANADA DAY CELEBRATIONS At least two communities are celebrating Canada Day early. In Douglas there will be a Canada Day Pancake breakfast from 9 a.m. to noon this Sunday, June 28 at the Douglas United Church Hall. The Cobden Activities Association is holding its Canada Day fireworks display on the Cobden beach Tuesday, June 30 at dusk.

There are always plenty of ways to celebrate Canada Day. Back in 2007, Izaak Quade figured this tire swing in Ma-Te-Way Park was as good as any. The Canada Day programs for Renfrew and McNab-Braeside appeared in last week’s Mercury Weekender. Details for neighbouring communities appear on this page. Mercury Weekender photo by STEVE NEWMAN

TREE FROG ON A TIRE

A tree frog, perched on the wheel of a barbecue. Mercury Weekender photo courtesy KIM FINAN.

They change their colours to suit the background is the fact they eat a variety of unattractive pests. Cutworms and earwigs are consumed in great numbers. So if you welcome them to your garden they will return the favour by controlling the many creepy crawlys that eat your vegetables before you get a chance to. A toad house made from an earthenware flower pot or four or five bricks placed to form a covered space with an opening at one end will be welcome by a pokey toad.

Kim Finan sent me the following e-mail, including a picture of her visitor. Hi Jim: This little guy has been with us for two years now on our deck. Any time we take the BBQ cover off, he crawls underneath the cover. He is camouflaged with the same colour as the underside of the cover. He is a grey moss colour. Any idea what kind of frog he is? Thanks, Kim Hi Kim: This little guy is a Gray Tree Frog. These are the largest tree frogs found in Canada reaching a length of about two and a half inches (60 mm). They are frequently green but may also be brown or grey, with an irregular, often ragged star-shaped blotch on the back. A prominent lightcoloured square is present under each eye. The brown-grey-green colouration is variable from frog to frog. An individual can change through all of these colours depending on the habitat and as a result will blend right into the surrounding vegetation. The round pads on the Gray Tree Frog’s toes are excellent suction cups. Although they spend much of their time in trees and on the ground they can crawl up the sides of buildings where night lights attract thousands of insects.

ing from their cocoons, mating and laying their eggs to produce the next generation. The Luna is lime green in colour and is one of the giant silkworm moths that are very rare. In the silk industry the silk of the cocoon is unraveled and spun into silk cloth. Silkworm moths are active at night and are most often seen near florescent lights. They have thread-like or feathery antennae not clubbed like butterflies. At rest their wings are help flat or roof-like over their backs. Silkworm moths are brilliantly coloured and have wingspans up to six inches (15 centimetres).

THE MILKY WAY With millions of stars on display, the summer Milky Way is one of the most spectacular sights in the summer sky The Milky Way, our galaxy, can be seen overhead every dark and moonless night. If you live in a highlight density area, getting out of the town or city and into the country is a must. Time at the cottage will do just fine. The two weeks on either side of Aug. 20, the date of the new moon, are best for viewing but July and September are also very good. A telescope or binoculars, even the naked eye, will add to your spectacle. Speaking of Nature.

Wide variety of new features planned for Art of Being Green festival

BETH PETERKIN Art of Being Green project manager In just two weeks, the tents will rise at the Middleville fairgrounds as the 6th annual Art of Being Green gets ready to welcome visitors at its new location. This popular Lanark Highlands festival takes place from July 10 to 12 and last-minute preparations are underway. The Art of Being Green is pleased with the mix of exhibitor booths this year. Over 100 spaces have been reserved with everything from solar, wind and geothermal energy, to house building techniques, green insurance information and lifestyles displays. Vendors sell everything from stainless steel water bottles, reusable bags, baby products, handmade artisan items, green cleaning supplies and locally-made beeswax candles. Once again, two workshop tents will run Saturday and Sunday with a wide range of speakers and topics. Many thanks to Rideau Lumber for assisting in the sponsoring of these workshops. New this year is a fashion show of Vintage Wear clothing which is sure to draw a lot of attention. Rev Rodney Bennett has prepared an Ecumenical Church Service for Sunday morning in one of the workshop tents. Everyone is welcome to attend. Of course what would a festival be without entertainment? Ian Tamblyn takes to the stage on Sunday at 2:00 p.m. Other new performers this year include Grace Wandering, a trio from southwestern Ontario featuring Sarah Quartel’s original compositions and unique covers, including vocal covers of non-vocal music. Important musical influences include The Wailin’ Jennys, Chic Gamine and Rajaton. Another new young group being featured is Annelise Petlock and the Astronaut Love Triangle. This group hails from the Ottawa area and describe themselves as a young, energetic and edgy folk-acoustic group with a diverse collection of soul-searching, upbeat, original pieces about environmental issues, human rights and sustainability. Many of our favourite musicians from years past are back including Tell Mama, the Sultans of String, Corkery Road, the Saints and Sinners, Linda Grenier, Dave Martin and the Highlanders 55+ Kitchen Band, Nepean Pan-harmonic Steel Band and the Mississippi Mills Pipe Band. Thanks to our Celebrate Ontario funding received this year from the Ministry of Tourism, we have been able to develop some enhanced children’s programming for 2009. Chris McKhool’s ecoShow, the Musical Me! Workshop and Mary Lambert will entertain and educate. Also, the Baobab Youth Performers from Ottawa with their energetic performance on Ghanaian drums will be a hit with all ages. We have been able to bring back the Wattman Train to tour the grounds throughout the weekend carrying children and adults from one end of the festival to the other. For just $3.00 you can purchase a wristband good for the whole weekend on the train. Also, your wristband purchase gets you into a draw for a family pack of four Via Rail tickets in comfort class.

Vandalism continuing in White Lake, councillor Dunlop says trend becoming too costly JOHN CARTER john.carter@metroland.com People in White Lake have to understand taxpayers can’t keep paying to repair vandals’ damage at the recreation centre, says McNab-Braeside Coun. Andy

Dunlop. “We have to seriously look at sending a message that enough is enough,” even if it means children at the rink will no longer have a place to get warm, he said. He said $30,000 in damage has been

done to and around the building. It’s hurtful to the volunteers who worked so hard on the centre, he said. Dunlop raised the matter at the June 2 council meeting, explaining the township is facing a dilemma. Four youth

have been caught vandalizing the facility, but only two have agreed to pay restitution, he said. “We can’t expect two to pay if the other two don’t.” Council agreed the matter should be discussed in a closed-door session.

COUNTY OF RENFREW SOCIAL SERVICES DEPARTMENT EXPRESSION OF INTEREST AFFORDABLE HOUSING PROGRAM

PEOPLE HELPING PEOPLE

Seniors’ Month draws to a close JUDY EWART Co-ordinator of Volunteer Services Seniors Home Support June is Seniors’ Month and this year’s theme is Creating Age Friendly Communities. As I thought about this theme, some ideas came to mind about what we need to create age friendly communities. Recognition. We need to recognize that our communities are made up of a wide range of ages and it is this mix that gives our communities their diversity. Ensuring that all ages have what they need in a community is not always easy, but with town staff and committed citizens working together, the needs of different age groups are often met. When looking at our communities and the organizations (social groups, recreation leagues) and services (Home Supports) that improve the lives of seniors, it is easy to see that our seniors have recognized their needs to create these organizations and have made a commitment to keep them going. Coming from a generation where you had to create your own entertainment and neighbours helped each other, this is not surprising. Acceptance. We need to accept all members of our community and realize that a mix of ages creates a wonderful

and vibrant community in which to live. Our seniors with their wealth of experience have a lot of skills and talents to offer our communities, while our younger members with their enthusiasm and creativity/innovation bring their ideas to our communities. In many ways we are seeing the bridging of the generations with programs in our schools with seniors helping students with reading and service clubs/organizations supporting youth. Fortunately in the Ottawa Valley we still have many extended families living in the area so that children grow up knowing their grandparents, aunts/ uncles and cousins. Acknowledgment. We need to acknowledge what all the various age groups do and bring to our community. Many of our service organizations, institutes, auxiliaries and church groups’ members are composed of seniors and adults who are work for the community’s betterment. Not to be outdone, the youth in our community are making their impact felt with food drives, Relay for Life, tree planting, support of world-wide causes and environmental work, among other things. Creating Age-friendly Communities is a real possibility and Renfrew is well on its way to this. See HOME SUPPORT, Page 38

The Government of Canada and the Province of Ontario have signed an amendment to the Canada-Ontario Affordable Housing Program (AHP) that provides funding for the construction of new affordable housing in Renfrew County. In order to measure the ability and interest of organizations in Renfrew County to deliver the program before March 31, 2011, the County of Renfrew is requesting interested proponents to submit an Expression of Interest application by July 10, 2009.

Getting Barker’s explosive offence off to a quick start was Mike McMahon with a first-inning inside-the-park homer, while Chad Barker homered in a 3-for-4 night. Teammates Brian Vanderploeg and Jeff Retty smashed homers too, while Sue Cotnam chipped in four hits. In other Wednesday action, Tom Williams Plumbing and Heating beat up Alternative Health Care Clinic 15-7 as the winners got four hits from Lindsay Wall, a threehit night that included two triples for Andrea Campbell, and a Jesse Riopelle homer.

In a losing cause, Alternative Health Care got homers from Trevor Johnson and Jeff Millar. Colterman’s got back on the winning track, after three straight losses, with a 20-5 rout of Pitt Contracting on Thursday, June 18. Keith Gourley picked up the pitching win and four hits, while teammates Clint Risto and Brady Donohue each homered, and Madeline Dunlop had four hits and scored three times.

Jordan MacMillan scored the tying run for Plumbing and Heating in the top half of the seventh. The offence also got help with Frank Visneskie’s sixthinning, three-run homer and Stephen James’s solo blast in the fourth. Earlier in the week, Tuesday’s June 16 action started off with Calabogie Home Hardware bettering Alternative Health Care 12-9. Calabogie evened its record at 2-2 as Jeff Rathbone picked up the pitching win.

SCRAMBLE FOR SECOND In other Thursday play, Mac’s Esso moved into a three-way tie for second place by edging Tom Williams Plumbing and Heating 12-11. Pitcher Matt Stewart took the loss by allowing the winning run in the bottom of the seventh. Esso got fuel from Paul Simard, who had four hits and scored another four, while Jay Charron had Esso’s only homer.

BRISCOE’S INSIDE-THE-PARK HOMER The winners also got an inside-the-park homer from Craig Briscoe, while Sarah Box had three hits and scored three times. Losing pitcher Jeff Millar had three hits for Alternative Health Care. In other June 16 play, Deslaurier Custom Cabinets improved to 3-1 by thumping Colterman’s 21-8. See MIXED SLO-PITCH, Page 15

Four-win week for Bob Sledz, Protyre stays in second

In the 22-1 opener Sunday, Sean O’Reilly had two triples and Schuler O’Brien beat it around the base paths for an inside-thepark homer. It was a similar on-sided affair in Game 2 with Frank Visneskie tripling twice and adding two other hits for Bob Sledz. Scott Davis, Randy Smith and Sean O’Reilly had four hits apiece. Protyre’s winning and Zig Zag’s losing ways continued Monday as Protyre beat the double-Z 21-11. With its eighth win in nine games, Protyre continued to get a hot bat from Les McLeod. He homered and added four other hits, while Jason Marshall’s four hits included a homer. Steve Cunningham added four hits and Andrew Dick five hits. Neil Lockwood picked up the pitching decision.

STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com A four-win week has moved Bob Sledz from third to first place in the Ma-Te-Way Men’s Slo-Pitch League. Protyre also had a solid week, going 3-1, to stay second in the seven-team league, while Zig Zags, which sat atop the standings, lost three straight to fall to 6-5 for third place overall. Protyre’s solid week started Sunday, June 21 by defeating Zig Zags 27-18 and Beimer’s 205, while Bob Sledz swept a pair from cellar-dwelling Aikenhead’s with 22-1 and 26-4 beatings. In Protyre’s shelling of Beimers, Neil Lockwood had a homer and three other hits, while teammate Stephane Lepansee belted a first-inning grandslam and Jason Marshall was 6-for-6 and scored four times.

STAY SAFE With the end of the heating season approaching now is the time to get an early start on chimney sweeping and have your wood heating system evaluated by a W.E.T.T. certified technician. This will ensure any repairs or upgrades necessary will be completed before next heating season. Creosote can cause deterioration within any type of chimney flue as it will absorb moisture when the chimney is not in use.

McDonald and Jasper raise $6,000 Keith McDonald and Jasper are joined on the walk for guide dogs by McDonald’s grandchildren, Lindsay and Mason Lynch. Mercury Weekender photo by PETER CLARK

PETER CLARK peter.clark@metroland.com Keith McDonald and guide dog Jasper, and Que before that, have participated in the annual Walk for Guide Dogs at Andrew Hayden Park in Ottawa in all kinds of weather. So a chilly May 31 day wasn’t about to stop them. “We were cold, but at least it didn’t rain or snow,” said McDonald, with a chuckle, of the May 31 walk, the 13th time he has made the five-kilometre trek. McDonald, a resident of Renfrew, and Jasper combined to raise $6,027 this year, a significant contribution to the overall take-in of $38,000 for Canadian Guide Dogs based in Manotick. McDonald was joined in this year’s walk by wife Lynnda, son-in-law Todd Lynch and daughter Kristie, and grandchildren Lindsay and Mason Lynch. “On behalf of myself, Jasper and Canadian Guide Dogs, I’d like to thank all the communi-

ty, and the merchants of Renfrew and the surrounding area for supporting me once again,” McDonald said. “Also to No Frills and Wal-Mart, Sandy (Gombik) and the crew at Precious Pets for the nail clippings, Larry Lepack for running the golf tournament, and Roy Briscoe again this year, for helping around town by getting to the places I couldn’t get to.” Precious Pets donated the $5 fee from the nail clippings of pets to the cause for the past few years. “I want to stress, all the money raised goes to local Canadian Guide Dogs from Manotick,” McDonald said, adding this was the 25th annual walk for guide dogs. IMPENDING RETIREMENT However, Jasper will not be able to make the walk with McDonald next year. “Jasper will have to retire. He has arthritis in his front left leg,” McDonald noted.

Community 100 TIMES Ken Harris has donated blood for the 100th time as nurse Wende Hannah prepares a Band-Aid for application. This milestone was reached during the Canadian Blood Services clinic at St. Joseph’s Catholic High School June 10. Harris first donated blood as a teenager 38 years ago in Terrace, B.C. “I feel the responsibility to (give),” he explained. “Anyone who’s able to should do it because there can’t be too many humanitarian things you can do for another person.” An unidentified donor gave for the 86th time, while Patricia Dicks of Griffith made her 59th donation. The clinic was sponsored by Renfrew Masonic Lodge. The next local clinic will be Wednesday, Aug. 12, at the Renfrew Royal Canadian Legion. Mercury Weekender photo by STEVE NEWMAN

Filled with good things REV. ALISON SHARPE Renfrew Presbyterian Church Read Ephesians 4:17-32 It’s that time of year again, when Brian and I start thinking about clearing the clutter out of our home and having a garage sale. We head for the basement first, to the laundry room/storage room, because that’s where most of the clutter collects over the year. All the things we only use once a year, all the things we thought we needed, but didn’t really, all the stuff we have decided we don’t want anymore gets piled up in storage in the basement. Neatly at first, and then as life gets busier through the winter things just pile up any old way at all. After we’ve conquered the laundry/storage room we take a quick run through the house to see if there’s anything else that we really don’t need or want. We price everything and box it up and wait for a sunny Saturday when we are free to have the sale. It always feels good to clear the junk out of our lives and the laundry room-slash-storage room looks neat and tidy with lots more room in it. The problem is, however, that by this time next year, the room will be full again with just as much junk. It’s like a virus, it just keeps growing! The truth is that we love to go to places, flea markets and Salvation Army or Value Village stores. And while we get lots of great deals on things we do need, we usually come home with plenty that we don’t really need as well. And so the laundry room begins to be a storage room all over again. There’s a parable here. We could say the same thing happens in a garden. When we weed a garden plot it always looks so neat and tidy with the black soil neatly raked in tiny furrows. But if we don’t plant something in it, the weeds will all be back in a week. Certainly there is always weeding that needs to be done as the flowers grow, but if we don’t plant anything at all, then the weeds will just move in and take root again. Likewise, I think we need to do something different with our laundry-slash-storage room, so that it doesn’t become a place to pile our unwanted or unused junk anymore. The logic is that we won’t be as likely to keep buying and collecting stuff we don’t need if there is no place to store it. Maybe we could turn the room into a workshop instead of storing all our tools out

in the garage, which I think is a pain in the neck in the winter anyway. Maybe we could set up some proper storage cupboards and shelves so that we could hide winter coats and boots and things we need once a year behind closed doors. Whatever happens, if we don’t do something different with the room, it will be the same story all over again next spring. Well, the longer we thought about it, we realized we could do something different. We could use the room for something other than storage. We could change the way we did things so we stopped accumulating too much stuff. If we filled the room with the right stuff, there wouldn’t be room for the wrong stuff. We could replace all that junk with something that was worthwhile and helpful to us. Well, you know, the Christian faith involves a very practical use of this idea of replacing something unhelpful with something more useful and rewarding. In his letter to the Ephesians, Paul encourages them to “put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds. Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to his neighbour, for we are all members of one body.” Replace stealing with work, replace critical and hurtful words with words of encouragement and hope. Replace bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander with kindness and compassion and forgiveness. Paul’s advice is forthright. He doesn’t mince his words. He calls sin what it is ... sin. And he tells us to rid our lives of it. But that’s not all. He also tells us to replace it with something better. No good leaving your hearts and minds empty of sin, he says, or soon you will be filled up with evil things all over again. Instead, fill your hearts and minds with good things. If we have a bad habit, it’s no good just trying to stop. We have to replace the bad habit with a good habit, something positive and encouraging and helpful, not just to ourselves but to others as well. We have to replace destructive behaviour with actions and activities that build our life and the lives of others. Don’t just stop doing bad things; do good things instead. It’s embarrassingly simple really. Don’t make room for the bad stuff in your life. Instead, fill your life with good things.

Algonquin College in the Ottawa Valley will have a new intake for the popular Social Service Worker (SSW) program this fall at its Pembroke Campus. The SSW program is normally offered every second year, but as the campus experiences record enrolment, a new section has been added to try to provide enough seats for every qualified applicant. Health and Community Studies chair Debra Balasevicius says there will be limited seats available in the program. “We are encouraging anyone interested in becoming a Social Service Worker to apply quickly as we are only opening up 25 seats in the program. The program relies on local employers to provide workplace experiences for our students and we must ensure we have enough of these placement opportunities available. This is the primary reason we have to cap the SSW enrollment numbers for this special offering,” adds Balasevicius. The Social Service Worker program has been particularly attractive to displaced workers throughout Ontario who are considering a second career. It traditionally attracts mature applicants who have been out of school for a few years, are interested in a helping career, and have some life experience that can help them address difficult issues with clients. Social Service Worker graduates work in many areas, including employment services, social assistance, educational programs, child and family organizations, seniors’ programming at hospitals and agencies, and group homes that support troubled youth. Some graduates of the program also leverage their college diploma to gain advanced standing in universities and work towards completing a Bachelor of Social Work degree. This is the second time in recent months Algonquin College in the Ottawa Valley has introduced a new section of a full-time program to assist those looking for retraining at a college level. A new Personal Support Worker program began May 19 in Renfrew and will also be offered again at the Pembroke Campus in the fall. The SSW program will begin Sept. 8 and applications are now available at www.ontariocolleges. ca.

Deadstock law makes liar of farmers MAYNARD VANDER GALIEN Farmers say changes to Ontario’s deadstock disposal are going to make liars out of them. “There’s more paper work involved with a dead calf than a live one,” quipped one farmer at an information meeting this past winter on the new disposal regulations. The record keeping of deadstock has some farmers shaking their heads. When a farm animal dies, a record of disposal must be made. Under the new NMA regulation the record needs to include: The species and age of the animal. The animal’s weight. Time and date of death if known. Cause of death. Time and date of disposal. Method of disposal. Place of disposal. Date of disposal. For incineration, a record of temperatures; for composting, a record of all regulated compost applied to the land in the year. It’s overkill! Too extreme! Can you see some of the causes of death that’s going to be written down? Heart failure, died of old age, hardware, bloated on alfalfa, was in heat on hot summer day and was ridden by other cows and collapsed, veterinarian not sure but was treated for milk fever…and so on. Most farmers don’t know the exact age of their cattle, especially the cows. If a

farmer has 40, 60 or 100 cows he’s not going to know the age of them all. He’ll have an idea. How will he know how much the animal weighs? Buy a set of farm scales? Truck the dead animal to a place where it can be weighed? Sure, but a permit under the federal Health of Animals Act is needed. Guessing the weight of an animal would make it easier for farmers. The changes came into effect on March 27, 2009. The former Dead Animal Disposal Act was repealed and replaced with two regulations. The first regulates on-farm dead animal disposal under the Nutrient Management Act NMA). The second regulates the management of deadstock on properties other than the farm under the Food Safety and Quality Act (FSQA). The new on-farm regulations under NMA expands the list of disposal options, includes farmed animals not previously covered, and establishes enhanced environmental standards for protection of water sources, with addition requirements that safeguard animal health and public health protection. This regulation applies to all livestock operations, regardless of whether or not they are required to have a nutrient management plan or strategy. See RURAL on page 28

TOWNSHIP OF MCNAB/BRAESIDE

VOLUNTEER FIREFIGHTERS The Township of McNab/Braeside is currently accepting applications for the Volunteer Fire Department. A serious commitment to training and active fire fighting is required. Preference may be given to applicants with previous fire fighting experience/ training. Valid Ontario Driver’s License, Class D with Z Endorsement or the ability to obtain such within a specified time will be required. Physical testing will be part of the hiring process.

Toby #3410 and Timmy #3411 Toby (six years old) and Timmy (two years old) are neutered male Maltese. Toby and Timmy were brought to the shelter to find a new home. They get along great together and are wonderful company for each other. The shelter would like to place them both in a home together. Both are very affectionate and outgoing, they are easy to handle and can be walked together. They will need a home where they will receive regular grooming. They have fairly long hair that would easily matt. Toby and Timmy would be best suited in a home without cats or other dogs. They are good natured and would be good with children. Please consider taking home this pair of sweet little boys.

Interested applicants are invited to submit an application along with a letter of intent or resume to the undersigned clearly marked “Volunteer Firefighter” no later than July 10, 2009. Noreen C.

Rural Routes Continued from Page 27 The new regulations now include the following farm animals: alpacas, bison, cattle, deer, elk, goats, llamas, sheep, yaks, pigs and other porcine animals, chickens, turkeys, geese, ducks, guinea fowl, quails, pigeon, pheasants, partridges, ratites, horses, ponies, donkeys, rab-

bits, other than rabbits kept for pets, and fur-bearing animals. Formerly there were three basic options for deadstock disposal, including collection, composting or burial. The new list includes: collector service, composting, incineration, disposal vessel burial, delivery to an approved anaerobic digester, delivery to an approved waste disposal site, delivery to a licensed disposal facility under Food Safety and Quality Act and delivery to a veterinar-

ian for post mortem and disposal by the veterinarian. Incineration might sound like a great idea to get rid of the little calf that died suddenly. Forget it! The outdoor wood furnace doesn’t qualify. The regulations state that: Incinerator must have been issued a Verification Certificate by ETV Canada certifying that it has a secondary chamber that can maintain the temperatures of the gases entering it for at least one second at 1,000 de-

grees C or two seconds at 850 degrees C. A record of temperatures in the combustion chambers throughout the incineration process must be kept for a period of two years. What really irks farmers is that it’s okay for wildlife and roadkill to decompose in the bush or by the roadside, but farmers have to know the weight, age and cause of death of the animal they are disposing of. And record it!

ROBERT ST. MICHAEL Legion PRO Good day, once again! The Renfrew Legion’s 80th anniversary on June 13 was a resounding success, thanks to the committee’s tireless efforts. Please see the June 18 Weekender for all the details. Many thanks are extended to Greg Walbeck, Cheryl Babcock, J.L. Vincent and Leanne Stubinski for their organizational skills. Thanks to the Renfrew Highland Pipes & Drums, Legion House band BR 148, the Ladies’ Auxiliary (what a delicious meal!), our beautiful young (and not so young) servers, bar staff, dignitaries and all of those who may have been inadvertently missed. The Shanty Breakfast was held on Saturday, June 20 and was another huge success. A big thank-you to Mark Guyea (Giz) for organizing and over seeing that everything ran smoothly. Thank you to his right-hand women, Fran Godin and Mary Palfreyman. Also thank you to the volunteers who came out to help Giz. For all those who missed it, you can catch the next one in September. Entertainment is still going strong, with a variety of groups playing their hearts out every Saturday from 3 to 7 p.m. For the entertainment lineup, please consult the Weekender for the advertisement each week. (Friday, June 26, Legion House band – BR 148 at 8 p.m.) For the bingo lovers out there, our next bingo is Friday, July 3 starting at 7 p.m. Doors open at 6 p.m.

This day is remembered and quietly kept No words are needed, we shall never forget We are thinking of you today But that is nothing new We thought about you yesterday And the day before that too For those we love don’t go away They walk beside us everyday Unseen and unheard, but always near So loved, so missed, and so very dear You never failed to do your best Your heart was true and tender You toiled hard for those you loved Then left them to remember The race in life is over now God gave his great command In silent peace you passed away into a better land One day dear Dad we shall be With your soul we loved so well One day we’ll be together And never say farewell Always remembered and sadly missed.

Love, The Enright family
