Flooding prompts landslide fears

JOHN CARTER john.carter@metroland.com Thursday, July 30, 2009 FREE McNab-Braeside and Horton were still mopping up early this week after a torrential rainstorm caused major damage last Friday evening. The state of emergency declared for the Rhoddy’s BaySand Point area of McNab-Braeside was still in effect Tuesday, as officials feared more landslides. The order affected an area from Goshen Road to the Ottawa River and Division Street to Storie Road. In a release, the township explained that the state of emergency will remain in place until council and the emergency management team are confident imminent weather patterns and ground instability pose no further threat to residents, property and municipal facilities. The Ministry of Natural Resources completed an aerial review of the emergency area Monday. MNR officials also took soil samples for analysis in order to determine slope stability and determine the possible presence of leda clay, which is susceptible to sliding when soaked. “Results will be forthcoming,” says the McNab-Braeside release. “Please avoid embankments. Attempting to view damRhoddy’s Bay homeowner Michael Assaf (facing camera) joins firefighters Saturday making aged areas is dangerous.” Especially hard hit by erosandbags in preparation for possible future severe weather near Rhoddy’s Bay. His home was undamaged but his neighbours were not so lucky. For more photographs, see Page 10.

Drive and 2130 River Road. On Friday, four homes on Dewar Road were evacuated because of landslides and power lines were temporarily removed from some homes. Services have returned to normal operation, but OPP, County of Renfrew Paramedics and Country of Renfrew Road crews stand ready to assist the township should more extreme weather necessitate emergency measures. The township has announced that Maple Bend Road is now open to all traffic, but sections of Scheel Drive (McLean Drive through Carmichael Side Road) and Clifford Side Road (Milton Stewart through Millar Road) remain closed to all but local traffic until further notice. The Ministry of Housing and Municipal Affairs is conducting an assessment of damage associated with this emergency and met with township council Tuesday. Ontario Power Generation is assisting the township by reducing water in Chats Lake by 10 centimetres. While the water levels are well within normal ranges, the added precaution is designed to reduce stress on water-logged embankments along the Ottawa River. The County of Renfrew Health Unit’s drinking water advisory remains in effect for residents affected by flood conditions. See WATER, Page 2

Water boiling advised Continued from front If they suspect their wells have been compromised, residents, particularly those in Rhoddy’s Bay and Sand Point, are advised to either boil their water or use alternative drinking water sources. Affected water should not be used for drinking, making infant formula and juices, cooking, making ice, washing fruits, vegetables or brushing teeth. For these purposes, boiled water or bottled water should be used. The health unit advises that water should be brought to a rapid rolling boil and boiled for at least one minute. The township is advising residents affected by the flooding to take photographs of the damage and contact their insurance agents. Residents are welcome to continue to contact the township CAO for information at 613-623-5756, ext 222. All calls are monitored and will be returned. HORTON HIT TOO Horton road superintendent Rod Eady saw the rain storm coming Friday evening and, suspecting the deluge that was to come, sprang into action. He had road closed and warning signs out before the rain had stopped, said the township’s community emergency management co-ordinator Jim Ferguson. “He did a great job.” Ferguson said the storm hit some parts of the township harder than others. The rain washed out part of the hill on Humphries Road and eroded a large hole in River Road at the Thomson Road intersection. There was also damage on Stevenson Road and a number of driveways of homes along the river were also damaged by the heavy runoff. Ferguson said the fact that traffic was already detoured off River Road because the County is replacing the culvert near the old Storie’s store helped minimize the inconvenience. The township and county road crews put in a long day Saturday, fixing the washouts and opening the closed roads.

website (www.mcnabbraeside.com) throughout the weekend. The first notice that a state of emergency had been declared at 11:30 p.m. last Friday in the east end of the township and that eight roads in the

township were closed appeared on the website at 1:45 a.m. Saturday. It was followed by the actual declaration, advice on how to make a sandbag, a drinking water advisory, an after-flood checklist and four updates.

JOHN CARTER john.carter@metroland.com The amount of truck traffic in the Pineridge area has prompted concerns about public safety. Work along Highway 17 in preparation for the extension of four lanes to Scheel Drive has boosted the number of large trucks in the area. At its July 21 meeting, McNab-Braeside council discussed complaints by Campbell Drive residents. However, council decided it wouldn’t make sense to ask for a temporary traffic light at the corner of Highway 17 and Campbell Drive to encourage dump trucks to use the highway instead of municipal roads when working in the area. Mayor Mary Campbell reported that Cavanagh Construction has responded after the township received numerous calls about trucks speeding, not stopping properly at stop signs, and leaving clay and debris on Campbell Drive. Cavanagh representative Clay Angus has spoken to drivers and there have been improvements, the mayor said. “They are adhering to the speed limit and cleaning up the debris.” She said the trucks are using both sides of Campbell Drive to get back to the Madawaska Bridge, where they are picking up dirt, because they feel it is unsafe to turn left onto the highway. The speed of the highway traffic is so fast, it is safer for the trucks to cross over Campbell Drive than turn onto the highway, she explained.

That continues to result in complaints from residents, Campbell added, noting a stop light is only realistic solution to deter truck traffic from using Campbell Drive. “Mr. Angus estimates the work will go on for at least five months,” she said. Another concern is damage to municipal roads that weren’t built for heavy truck traffic, she added. Deputy Mayor Elmer Raycroft suggested putting in a full stop on Highway 17 would be expensive and cause traffic jams. Coun. Brad McIlquham suggested it wasn’t worth the effort because it would probably take five or six months to receive approval. As well, slowing up highway traffic could cause its own safety problems, he said. Working with the contractor to mitigate problems in a preferable route to go, he added. “They’re trying their hardest.” “They have been very co-operative,” Campbell agreed. It’s dangerous to have trucks travelling on routes, such White Lake Road, with considerable pedestrian traffic, said Coun. Andy Dunlop, calling it a catastrophe in waiting. However, the township can’t keep trucks off its roads, he added. “I think we can put up with this for a short period of time,” said Raycroft. He cautioned that area residents will have to deal with the impacts of work on the White Lake Road interchange for the next three years. “Better get use to it,” said Dunlop.

Editorial Up to the challenge If there was a silver lining to the disaster that caused so much damage along the Ottawa River Friday, it was the quick response and co-operation between many different agencies. The road crews of McNab-Braeside, Horton and the County tackled the problems quickly and worked long hours through a summer weekend to ensure roads were passable by Monday morning. McNab-Braeside firefighters spent hours helping residents of Rhoddy’s Bay and Sand Point deal with the aftermath of Friday’s deluge and protect themselves from a possible repeat. Municipal emergency plan officials in McNab-Braeside and Horton were on alert and helped co-ordinate the response. McNab-Braeside staff stayed up late to ensure the state of emergency declaration, road closures and the boil-water advisory were quickly and well publicized. OPP, paramedics, OPG, health unit MOE, MNR – you name it, they pitched in to help. The effort was greatly appreciated. The Renfrew Mercury

Flooding should have been foreseen To the editor: Years of uncertainty and fears of impending property flooding, loss and damage became a reality for local residents this past Friday July 24. The ongoing drainage issues at the Golf Course Road and River Road in Sand Point, Braeside finally reared its ugly head over the weekend. A lot of the damage along the River Road – the washouts and landslides – may not have been avoidable. But here, in the tiny hamlet of Sand Point, a battle with the Township of McNab-Braeside and Renfrew County has been ongoing for over 20 years. This is one of many battles for community betterment … this battle is regarding the upgrading of culverts and storm drains. And, in light of the storm that passed through on Friday, it is evident that we need to address this issue once and for all. The problem: there is only one active 24-inch culvert that goes under the road at River Road and Golf Course Road. This undersized culvert would not even meet today’s road standards for those under a laneway to a single house from a road. There is one channel or path for water to travel on the easterly side of the road at the top of the hill … half-way down that Golf Course road this easterly path is diverted to the other side of the road to another channel that ends in an undersized culvert. The Golf Course Road has collapsed as it was completely undermined by the flow of water Friday night. It’s a very steep road stretching for half a kilometre. Over the past few years at least 20 new homes have been built in the area above the Golf course Road and along Toner Road. Of course, the land around them has been graded up and their drainage systems installed to keep water out of their basements and into the township ditches. This water, however, finds its way to the top of the hill on Golf Course Road and heads downhill at high speed towards the River. It hits that half-way diversion point (nobody can understand this design) and heads for that aforementioned small culvert. The force of water coming down Golf Course Road on Friday evening

The heavy rains caused considerable damage to the road leading up to the Arnprior Golf Course. Photo by MIKE CLEARY was staggering. To make matters worse, the old culvert on the easterly side of the intersection at River Road and Golf Course Road, was closed off. The west side understandably couldn’t handle the flow and blocked up. The force of the water broke through the diversion and came down the east side as well. The water blew up over the road and the amount so immense that it undermined parts of the railway on the other side and, washed out points of the Appleby Road below that. You can’t stop water … you can, however, divert it. I am not an engineer. I am a builder. Simple maintenance of the ditches/culverts and upgrading of these archaic culverts would have prevented this disaster. Declaring a state of emergency in Sand Point is proof we need a solution here. A pink paper was given to us by the clerk from the town stating not to drink the water. Where is the followup? Where is the bottled water that should be supplied to me and my family not to mention all of the other residents? I have three sump pumps running constantly in the basement and no one from the Township or County has called or stopped by to assess either of

these water problems. If you declare a state of emergency there has to be some follow-up. My heart goes out to all of my fellow neighbours who suffered through all this unnecessary turmoil and to all residents of Rhoddy’s Bay who also suffered unthinkable damage to their properties and personal belongings. Attitudes have to change from the powers-that-be we have elected. Preventative maintenance should be number one and a preventative proactive strategy should be adopted by both council and county and it should be implemented immediately. Listen to the taxpayers and do what is best for us. Simple. It is interesting to note (for anyone who ventured up the Golf Course Road over the weekend) that two larger culverts, washed out from one laneway at the top of the hill, were resting just ahead of this midway diversion point and stuck there on a rock. Sad to think that none of this would have happened if they were simply used in the right locations at the bottom of the hill on both sides of Golf Course Road. Too simple. Mike Cleary Sand Pt.

Renfrew Fair poem put nicely to music by pianist To the editor: Just when I think I am sliding into obscurity, someone gives me a wake-up call. In this case it was Pat Maloney, a talented musician and pianist who resides in Renfrew, and this is a thank you note to her. I moved to a small apartment in Ottawa last December after selling my house in Calabogie, but still help out a bit with entertainment at the various nursing homes and hospitals in Renfrew and Arnprior. On June 17, while taking part in the Seniors Star Contest sponsored by Chartwell Senior’s Housing and Quail

Creek Retirement Home and held at Groves Park Lodge in Renfrew, we met up with Pat Maloney and after listening to some fabulous seniors performing on stage, Pat showed me the music she had written to one of my poems concerning the Renfrew Fair. She sat and played the piece for me and I must admit I was very pleased with it. Thank you so much Pat, and hopefully your endeavors will not go unnoticed by the Renfrew Fair Board.

Nature

All the better to see you with, maybe Larry and Dawn Thivierge had a very ‘bright eyed’ moth arrive at their home this week. With the aid of the Internet, they were able to send me a picture of it. The moth gets its name honestly. It has one very large blue ‘eye’ on each under wing. Although the moth cannot see with these ‘eyes’, they give the impression of a much larger and more aggressive insect. Many a bird has been discouraged from making a meal of the moth because of its large blue ‘eyes’. The moth is a member of the Sphinx moth family and is so named because of the way the caterpillar holds itself erect much like the Sphinx statue of ancient Egypt.

This photograph of the Twin Spotted Sphinx Moth was taken by Larry Thivierge.

They are also known as “hawk moths” because of their streamlined shape and rapid wing beat. Most sphinx moths feed on flower nectar. Some like the Twin-spotted Moth are unable to feed as adults. Over many generations they have lost the necessity to feed and have, therefore, lost their mouth parts. This common moth is attracted to outside lights and can often be found on the ground or in the trees close to the lights. TWO ATTRACTIVE RARE VISITORS I received a letter from Gina Chusroskie and pictures of two attractive rare visitors that came to her home. The pictures are of a Luna Moth and a Garden Spider. Luna Moths are large silk worn, moths, with a fiveinch wingspan, long flowing tails much like those of Barn Swallows and they are lime green in colour. They, like the Twin-spotted Moth, have an ‘eye’ on each wing that acts as a deterrent to any would-be bird that might make a meal of the moth. Luna Moths are attracted to outside lights and may be seen on any warm summer night flying around and around the lights. Many scientists claim that the moths spend their time flying instead of seeking a mate and this has led to a decline in the population. Luna Moths do not feed as adults. The Yellow Garden Spider was the star of the book ‘Charlotte’s Web’ and is also a common ‘spook’ on Halloween. This is a large spider. The body is about an inch long and the legs add another two and a half inches to its length.

The yellow and black body pattern is very striking and with the yellow and black legs this spider is quite colourful but can be intimidating. Yellow Garden Spiders are members of the orb weaver family and as such is easy to recognize by their colour and the shape and pattern of their webs. The web has an X-shaped, white silk stabilizer attached to the centre of the web. It looks much like a coiled spring and when a bird or large insect strikes the web, the stabilizer absorbs the shock and keeps the web from being damaged. This spider does not always stay near the web but will wander into nearby vegetation and hide until an insect is caught in the web. It then scrambles onto the web, paralyzes its prey with a venomous bite and rolls it in silk for later consumption. Speaking of Nature. Jim Ferguson, 5313 River Road, RR5, Renfrew, Ont., K7V 3Z8.

News More funding flows to local municipalities JOHN CARTER john.carter@metroland.com June Street in Renfrew will be vastly improved over the next year thanks to a federal-provincial stimulus grant. Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant joined Renfrew Mayor Sandi Heins recently for a progress review on the June Street rehabilitation project. The project is one of many that are being worked on this summer with funding from three levels of government. “Residents of Renfrew benefit when political leaders work together,” said Gallant. “The joint federal, provincial and municipal funding to June Street in Renfrew is a good example of working together.” Gallant said the project is just one example of all levels of government “committed to stimulating the Ontario economy by reducing red tape, creating jobs for Ontarians, and getting shovels in the ground sooner.” The governments of Canada and Ontario will each invest up to $126,666 in the project. The Town of Renfrew will contribute the balance of the total eligible project cost of up to $380,000. The project will improve transportation efficiency and enhance local facilities and services when the need for economic stimulus is greatest. The federal portion was funded under

the communities component of the Building Canada Fund. The Communities Component is focused on projects in communities with populations of less than 100,000. Projects were selected through an applicationbased process and, like projects under the Major Infrastructure Component, were evaluated on the extent to which they met environmental, economic and quality of life objectives. This significantly helps smaller communities address their infrastructure pressures and serves as a complementary instrument to gas tax funding. This project is one of 289 across the province that is breaking ground thanks to a federalprovincial-municipal investment of more than $1 billion. The governments of Canada and Ontario have taken steps to get shovels in the ground and to flow money faster for targeted infrastructure projects in Ontario Communities for the 2009 and 2010 construction seasons. O’BRIEN ROAD GRANT Renfrew has received a number of grants in the last couple of year, include almost $20 million toward its new sewer plant. Another grant, much smaller but potentially almost as significant, was announced earlier this month. Renfrew will receive $81,000 from the Ontario govern-

ment through the Connecting Link program to study ways to improve the O’Brien Road corridor. The grant indicates the province recognizes the need to improve traffic flow and safety on Highway 60 as it travels through Renfrew. The town has been lobbying for major improvements to the route between confusion corner and Highway 17 and this is a promising first step. FUNDS FOR WHITEWATER Meanwhile, Gallant also announced federal funding of $195,856 of to assist Whitewater Region Township upgrades at its Haley Water Distribution

System. The funding follows through on a commitment by the federal government to fund new water upgrades in Ontario. “The Government of Canada recognizes the economic challenges faced by some Ontario municipalities to fund additional costs for upgrading water projects,” said Gallant. “The Building Canada Fund, Communities Component, addresses some of those financial pressures.” Under the Building Canada Fund and the Infrastructure Stimulus programs, the governments of Canada and Ontario will each invest up to one third of the net eligible costs in each project. Municipalities will con-

Hudak names Yakabuski deputy house leader Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MPP John Yakabuski has been named the provincial Conservatives’ deputy house leader by new leader Tim Hudak. He has also been re-appointed to the position of energy critic . “Our Caucus will provide a principled conservative plan and a winning alternative to the failed leadership of the McGuinty Liberals,” said Hudak. “I am looking forward to working with John Yakabuski and to expanding our party together as we work to victory in 2011.” “I am honoured to continue our party’s important work as energy critic and to begin my new responsibilities as deputy house leader, working towards the next election under the direction of our capable new leader, Tim Hudak,” said Yakabuski. “Ontarians deserve so much more then what they’re getting from Dalton McGuinty’s government and I believe that our party,

under Tim Hudak’s direction, offers a real alternative.” “We need innovative ideas grounded in conservative principles in order to get Ontario moving,” said Hudak. “Together, united and strong, we can focus on the issues that matter to middle-class families, defeat Dalton McGuinty and the Ontario Liberals, and bring prosperity to our province. “The people of RenfrewNipissing-Pembroke are fortunate to have an MPP of the caliber of John Yakabuski representing them in the Ontario Legislature,” Hudak said. “As energy critic, John has shown that the McGuinty Liberals have no plan for Ontario’s energy future and he will continue to fight for Ontario families and businesses because he knows that a stable, affordable energy supply is the key to Ontario’s future economic prosperity. “

tribute the balance of total eligible costs. The funding compliments nicely with the federal government’s earlier decision to accelerate gas tax transfers to municipalities to assist local ratepayers, said Gallant. Moving federal funds quickly has placed all municipalities in a stronger financial position to fund their portion of infrastructure construction, she added. “I am delighted that many of our Renfrew County communities have benefited due to the commitment of the Conservative Government,” said Gallant. “Mayor Don Rathwell and Whitewater Region councillors are to be congratulated.”

Sleuths, spy skits, detective academy and more STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com There was no shortage of material for reading, and for the imagination, during the 2009 summer reading program at the Admaston-Bromley Public Library. The Douglas-based library was abuzz with as many as 36 kids per day, for the July 20-24 session that featured the theme of Detective Academy. Kids ages 4 to 10 made kits with disguises, collected ID badges, listened to audio books, created after crafts, played

on computers, and heard readings from Encyclopedia Brown Saves the Day while trying to solve the book’s crime or case of the day. All activity wasn’t within the library walls, however. The children also headed outdoors mid-mornings for games, including treasure hunting. “It was overwhelmingly good,” said assistant librarian Jane Wouda. “So we’re thinking of possibly expanding the program.”

Life in the fast lane SHERRY HAAIMA shaaima@msn.com There was lots of excitement at the third annual Ted Powell Memorial Race Weekend at Calabogie MotorSports Park, but perhaps no one was as thrilled to get on the track as Beachburg’s young Nathan Blok, who raced the first Formula 1600 race of his life on Saturday. Blok followed up a respectable ninth place ranking Saturday with an impressive third place podium finish on Sunday. “I have never been more excited,” said Blok. “Nothing compares to it.” Highlights of the weekend included an appearance by John Powell, son of Ottawa area racing legend Ted Powell, who waved the green flag to start the GT race. Motorsport Club of Ottawa’s Craig Lee says the Calabogie facility is a great location for the Ted Powell race and the event has grown over the years. Once run on just part of the track, a larger bank of qualified marshals and volunteers meant the entire 5.5 kilometre track was in use. “It’s been excellent. We’re very pleased with the number of spectators,” said Lee. Close to 200 drivers were involved in what is becoming a popular event on the racing circuit. There were several classes, including Formula Libre, F1200, GT and vintage classes.

PRAISE FOR BLOK Nathan Blok’s performance received high praise, said his mom Sandra. “Everyone was quite pleased. A lot of people in their first race don’t make it past qualifying,” she said. She and husband Steve are very proud, said Sandra, and Nathan was thrilled with the whole experience. “He was ecstatic when he finished the race,” said Sandra. “There weren’t enough people around to hug.” Nathan has been racing go karts since he reached the required age of six. Now, he races as the youngest member of the Mortimer racing team, based in Ottawa, one of the major teams in the sport. Drivers must be 16 years old to participate in racing events. Among Blok’s teammates are former major-general Lewis MacKenzie and driver Matt White, who finished first in Sat-

urday’s race. Nigel Mortimer, owner of Mortimer Racing, says Blok performed well. “We’re very pleased,” he says. “His learning curve is very fast and he’s a lovely kid to work with. He goes out and does exactly what he was asked to.” Nathan can benefit from his teammates, too, says Mortimer. “He’s got the benefit of a lot of people with decades of experience and like I said, he listens.” Nathan’s list of sponsors is impressive, says Mortimer. “Without money, you can’t go anywhere,” he says. During Sunday’s event, Blok and his teammates spent some time with optometrist Dr. John Granda, learning to test and hone their vision for maximum performance on the track.

The Fellowes High School student is a junior black belt in karate, is trained in piano and he curls in the fall. Next up for Nathan is a race in Trois Rivieres, Quebec. He would like to race at Montreal’s upcoming Nascar event, dependent on funding. In terms of mental preparation, Nathan says there is no specific method. ”I just get in and do my job – do what I do best,” he says. Nathan’s fastest time so far is 200 kilometres per hour. He would love to one day get into Formula 1 racing. Motorsports can be an excellent activity for young people, says Paul Swinwood of Motorsport Club of Ottawa. “If you want to race – young kids want to have a good time and see how good they are – come out here,” says Paul Swinwood of Motorsport Club of Ottawa. “Safety marshals are on hand, everyone’s going in the same direction, it’s much safer to test your speed on a controlled track,” he says. “Calabogie MotorSports Park offers training schools and lapping days for those wanting to learn more or try out the track. The atmosphere at the race and in the racing community is supportive. “It’s a nice family, it’s a tight family,” says Swinwood.

Ashton resident Earl Moore, who showed his 1916 Chevrolet, receives the random-draw grand prize of an Orlando, Florida getaway from Heather Huehl, one of the show organizers. The 50/50 draw went to Nancy Wright of Douglas, while the show also raised $167 for the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario.

Definitely a cool truck! This was one of the most popular of 47 vehicles at the Step Back in Time show − Doug Balchin’s 1951 Willys Pickup.

Because of a glitch in a program determining Ontario Scholars at Renfrew Collegiate Institute last month, two students were mistakenly left off the list. There were 30 Ontario Scholars, not 28, at RCI with the addition of Amanda Coulas, above, of Burnstown and Gerry Nichol of Calabogie. Coulas will take psychology at Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo in September. To achieve Ontario Scholar status, a student must achieve at least 80 per cent in their top six Grade 12 courses Mercury Weekender photo by JOHN CARTER

Sometimes I can’t believe the things I see on television. I’m not thinking about sexual things, oddball characters or something that’s supposed to be comedy. I’m talking about real life events. The other day I watched a documentary on a PBS channel about a farm family who grow crops and raise beef cattle. The elderly man and his 38-year-old son were shown cutting horns off some of their yearolds. If the cattle didn’t stick their head in the headgate right away, the son went in behind them and pushed them in. One animal was able to turn around in the squeeze chute as he was pushing it and it came at him. You never go behind agitated cattle, especially in tight quarters. Regional Contact is a popular local show we enjoy. It features mostly creative people – you know, artists, sculptures, musicians, and retirees who make odd things. Many times I’ve rolled my eyes and wondered who actually buys the stuff. A few weeks ago the show featured a farming couple and their 35-year-old son who are

market gardeners and have a winery on their farm. They make fruit wines from their garden and orchard produce. The segment opened with the son, a graduate of Kemptville Agricultural College, driving an old David Brown tractor and disking a grassy strip of land near an orchard. He had the front-end loader bucket up in the air as high as it would go. It was one of those heavy buckets for loading and moving soil or manure. A bucket should never be up in the air when doing work other than loader work. It’s stupid and dangerous. It should be three or four feet off the ground. The closing shot of the segment was as dumb as the opening one. The son was driving the tractor down the laneway and had his little son – a toddler – sitting on his lap. Did the parents not

teach him how to operate a tractor safely? Did it not come up in a machinery or tractor course at Kemptville? In the segment, the son’s mother tells viewers that her husband lost the farm twice. Each time he bought another farm and cut down trees and cleared the land. That’s hard to believe because the family milked cows for many years until they sold their cows and quota some years ago. The family was in the news last fall because Farm Credit was going to sell the farm. You want to make a good impression and wear appropriate clothing when you are being featured on a television show. That’s especially true if you want folks to buy your farm-made wines and produce you sell at area markets. The older man is shown walking to the wine-making building wearing farm clothes with large red sus-

penders holding up his pants. He tells viewers he and his wife aren’t wine drinkers, but they decided to get into winemaking because of all the surplus crops they have at times. That way it wouldn’t go to waste. They did a lot of experimenting to get the right taste. Neighbors and friends helped – they were the taste testers. The man enters the wine-making building and you see vats on the floor full of produce and liquids doing whatever they are supposed to do. Ferment, I suppose. The man grabs an oar from the side of the room and starts to churn the stuff in the vat. Those bright red wide suspenders stick out like a sore thumb. You’d think he’d put on a clean white jacket or apron. He doesn’t sanitize the oar. It doesn’t look professional. Seeing that on television, would you drink the fruity wine? At the end of the show the interviewer asked the farmer what he’d like to do if he’s successful with the wine business. He says he’d like to buy a helicopter and fly low over the fields. That made me roll my eyes, again.

Annual General Meeting Snow White, dwarfs missing from farm and Early Registration Anyone seen Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs? On July 14, Lanark County OPP were contacted by a resident in the Village of Pakenham regarding a theft of some cement figurines with significant sentimental value. Constable F. Whiting attended the residence and the homeowner, advised that a figure of Snow White and three Dwarfs, described as being 16 inches tall and filled with cement, were on her front veranda and stolen sometime overnight. The homeowner said she had

owned the figures for 20 years, handpainted them herself and puts them on her porch every summer. A current detour route around Pakenham because of a culvert replacement project has seen an increase of traffic past the victim’s home and she feels that a passing occupant took a liking to the figures and returned to steal them. The stolen figures are described as: Snow White figure had blonde pigtails and a blue dress, she held her apron up that contained flowers. One dwarf

was multi-coloured and pushing a wheelbarrow and another dwarf had a bag over his shoulder and the word “seeds” was on the bag. Police are continuing with this investigation, but if you know or are aware of the person(s) responsible for the theft or the whereabouts of the statues, call Lanark County OPP at 613-267-2626 or toll-free at 1888-310-1122. You can also call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or submit information on-line at www.tipsumbit.com.

Renfrew Weekender - July 30 2009

CT is right around the corner at RVH, and we want to take this opportunity to bring you up to date on what is happening in our back yard. The construction crews and equipment are in full gear, as work proceeds on the latest hospital addition. The new CT unit will occupy 1,800 square feet of space adjacent to the RVH diagnostic imaging and emergency departments. The building construction is expected to be complete in October, and the CT scanner will be moved in as soon as possible. An experienced CT technologist has been hired and RVH diagnostic imaging staff are training in the technology, including on-site training offered by The Ottawa Hospital at the Civic campus. GE Canada, the supplier of the CT scanner, will also provide specialized training once the equipment is installed. And the excitement has spread beyond the construction zone and hospital hallways. Individuals and groups throughout the region have come forward to support the RVH CT fund.

With no available provincial funding, the hospital itself is responsible for the full $3 million cost of construction and equipment purchase. To date, we have received $500,000 in donations for this purpose. This includes the $40,000 raised at the 2009 Caring For Tomorrow Golf Tournament, the proceeds from the 2008 tournament, and the generous gifts received in the Tree of Lights Christmas campaign. In addition to those major events, the Renfrew district has stepped forward to host everything from a barn dance to a night at the opera to help bring CT diagnostics to our community. Church groups have made the RVH CT fund their charity of choice this year, with the most recent donations including a $2,500 contribution from the congregation of St. Paul’s Anglican Church in Renfrew and a $1,000 gift from the Mt. St. Patrick Catholic parish. Service organizations have also been generous toward the cause, with groups like

the Eganville Legion making their own donation of $4,000 and challenging their comrades throughout the region to join in the venture. The business community has also shown its support. Sterling’s No Frills recently presented the RVH Foundation with a cheque for more than $4,000. Canadian Tire adopted the CT theme with a donation of $6,000, and J & J’s Chocolate Sensations is donating the proceeds and publishing rights to their recently-published cookbook, “Recipes of the Week.” Even the recent free skin cancer clinic found a way to contribute to the cause.

Organizer Diana Wakely offered participants the opportunity to make donations and more than $200 was collected by the end of the day. Local families have also made the RVH CT project their charity of choice through memorial donations and other personal contributions. We thank each and every one of you for the special contributions you have made to our community hospital over the years, and we encourage you to spread the word about this important extension to quality health care for our community and our hospital’s need for support.

Construction is well underway to make room for the CT scanner that will enhance diagnostic capabilities at Renfrew Victoria Hospital this fall. 280814

Each week we feature animals from the Arnprior and District Humane Society that are up for adoption. # 3403 MITTS Mitts is a spayed two-year-old female with a black coat with white on the chest She was found behind the Arnprior Mall, foraging for food in the garbage dumpsters. Mitts is a very affectionate cat and likes to be the center of attention. She is quite vocal and will let you know when she is not impressed with something. She tolerates other cats, but prefers her own space. Please consider taking this sweet little girl home.

# 3453 TOBY Toby was found tied to a post at the shelter one morning. He is a neutered five-year-old male. His coat was in terrible condition, badly matted and filthy, and he had to be shaved. Toby is a large cat, very docile and easygoing, who can be shy at first. He is quiet, affectionate, tolerates the other cats but prefers his own space; he has a favourite bed where he spends most of his time. He will require a home where he can be groomed regularly, and he is very easy to handle. Toby likes attention, doesn’t mind being picked up and carried, loves to be petted, and will snuggle. He is just a big loveable boy who deserves a second chance.

Health Community shows strong support for cancer victim JOHN CARTER john.carter@metroland.com The Arnprior-Renfrew area has rallied to support a young Braeside cancer victim and his family. Organizers of a fundraising dance Saturday and a strawberry tea Monday for six-year-old Sterling Toner overwhelmed organizers. Arnprior Deputy Mayor Tom Peckett praised the community for its support of Sterling, who is undergoing treatments at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario. At Monday’s Arnprior council meetMany of Sterling Toner’s young friends and relatives were out early Saturday ing, Peckett said the support shown at a to decorate the hall before the fundraising dance. From left are Kara Howarth, fundraising dance Saturday was wonder-

Cassandra Toner (Sterling’s sister), Nolan McGregor, Jacob Prowse, Payton McGregor, Breanna Howarth, Taryn McGregor, Caitlin Robillard, Kayla Robillard, Gabby McNulty (holding Kaden McGregor) and Kyle Broum.

ful. “The turnout was tremendous; the support was tremendous,” he said. Peckett said the amount of money collected was well beyond the organizers’ expectations. A tea and dessert fundraiser at the Antrim Truck Stop Monday was also a big success, he said. “The line-up stretched outside the door.” Collection jars in the area have also been strongly supported. Peckett said the support from the community, both from Arnprior and the surrounding area, shown by people “stepping forward to help out was unbelievable.” “I thank everyone who worked on this,” he concluded.

Receiving their prizes from Dr. King July 9 from left are Molly Bruce, $25 for her fourth-place poster in Grades 5-6; Elizabeth Kenopic, $20 for her fourth-place poster in Grades 1-2; and Maiya Bruce, $75 for her first-place poster in Grades 3-4. Missing from the photo is Leoni Hagan, a $100 recipient for her winning poster in the Grade 5-6 division. Weekender photo by PETER CLARK

IN MEMORIAM MCNULTY, Mark Edward

In loving memory of a dear son-in-law and In loving memory of a brother in law who left dear son, brother, us July 27 2001 brother-in-law and uncle who was tragically Those who we love taken from us on July go out of sight, 23, 1987. But never out of mind. Bobby, you are cher- In a quiet country ished in the hearts of graveyard, those you left behind. In memory of thee, A stone was placed, Forever loved, forever Your name inscribed, missed Eric, Kathleen Along with Dad and Elliott and family your brothers, Twenty-two years have come and gone, But time will not erase, The kind and lively spirit, Behind that handsome face.

BRYDGES, Bobby In loving memory of Bobby Brydges who passed away July 27, 2001 Eight years have come and gone Since the day you passed away, I can’t believe it’s been this long, It seems like yesterday. I think of you in silence, I often speak your name, I can’t forget the day you left, It never should have came. Each morning when I awake, I know that you are gone, No one knows the heartache As I try to carry on. My heart still aches in sadness And secret tears still flow, What it meant to lose you, Bobby, No one will ever know. My thoughts are always with you, Your place no one can fill, In life I love you dearly, In death I love you still. They say that time heals everything, I know that isn’t so, Because it hurts as much today As it did eight years ago. Forever in our hearts, Marie and Matthew Brydges

Gone but not forgotten. Love always, Mom and Family

BRYDGES, Robert In loving memory of a dear brother in law, and uncle Bobby Brydges who passed away July 27, 2001 Down the path of memory, We gently tread today, Our loving thoughts are with you, As life goes on its way, We often think about you, With love and sad regrets, For we who miss you dearly. Never will forget.

McMahon, Elizabeth Carroll

THANK YOU STUFKO/RIOPELLE

Losing a loved one is always difficult but there are people along that painful path who help make things a little easier. The family of Carroll McMahon would like to thank those people who helped make our most difficult time easier to cope with. To the staff of the second floor of Renfrew Victoria Hospital, we can’t thank you enough for the wonderful, compassionate care you gave Carroll. Extra thanks to Marie, Katherine, Wendy, Judy and Glenna who went above and beyond and were so kind, compassionate and caring towards us as well. Also, to Tammy Hirkala who showed us such professionalism and compassion. Thank you Anne Marie Urbatis at Renfrew Victoria Hospital who helped to cushion the blows as well as she could and helped us navigate the finals days of Carroll’s life with dignity. And thank you for the shoulder to lean on when we were losing our strength. Thank you to the wonderful ICU staff at Pembroke Regional Hospital for the excellent care they provided in the first days after Carroll’s stroke. Special thanks to Drs. Matosh and Di Paolo. Dr. Matosh provided the best care possible and Dr. Di Paolo was so warm and kind when the end finally came. Carroll worked for Wal-Mart for many years and we were overwhelmed with gratitude by the outpouring of support we received from employees, past and present, that she worked with. A special thanks to Vito and Kevin for making it possible for staff to attend the funeral and thanks to Gert for the beautiful luncheon that Wal-Mart provided. Goulet Funeral Home was outstanding in the handling of all the details for the funeral, thank you for making the arrangements easy for us. And an extra special thanks to Father Mac for the beautiful funeral service. Finally, thanks to all the family, friends, neighbours and co-workers who sent condolences, cards, flowers and prayer offerings. With Love, The McMahon and Ellement Families
