Jenn Walls to return for five ‘Really Cool’ performances Renfrew native Jenn Walls has been extremely busy with her career as an entertainer, piling up credit after credit in live musical theatre, television and in touring companies. Walls is an alumnae of Really Cool Initiatives and has chosen to return to Renfrew to appear in this summer’s show, Broadway Takes Flight Aug. 16 to 19. She has received critical acclaim for her portrayal of Liza Minnelli in Lizza Live!, a tribute to Liza Minnelli, that she has written and produced, and will be performing again when she gets back to Toronto after Broadway Takes Flight. “Jenn Walls appeared in our early shows and we are thrilled to have her back on our stage,” said Kathy Dagg, producer of Broadway Takes Flight. “We have followed her career closely and have enjoyed working with her from afar while she has pursued roles as a professional entertainer,” she added. “Really Cool Initiatives has definitely benefited from her suggestions as we built some of our previous shows when her career simply did not permit her to be in Renfrew. “Jenn is definitely in the spirit of our current show as she is catching a red-eye flight out of Toronto on Saturday night, so she can rehearse with our band on Sunday morning in time to take the stage in our opening

Broadway Takes Flight August 16 to 19 matinee on Sunday afternoon,” continued Dagg. “We are proud of the fact that although Jenn’s career has taken off over the past several years, she has chosen to take time out of her busy schedule to return to her home town and donate her talents to this Really Cool Initiatives production.” Broadway Takes Flight will be on the stage at St. Joseph’s High School Sunday, Aug. 16 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m., as well as 7 p.m. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday (Aug. 17-19). Tickets for the show cost $10 each and are available at Aikenhead’s Drug Store and Barry Breen Insurance, as well as at the door. For a photograph of Jenn, please see page 2.

CHEO Chicks sale coming in August

THE FACE OF COURAGE

The annual CHEO Chicks bake sale is coming back, at a different time and new location. Paige Dillabough and friends will hold their annual fundraiser Saturday, Aug. 22 in and outside BobSledz on Renfrew Avenue in downtown Renfrew. The sale will run from 8 a.m. to noon to raise money for the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario.

Paige has held the bake sale for several years in Low Square in early June around the time of the CHEO telethon in appreciation of the care provided her by the hospital. Now a Renfrew Collegiate Institute student, Paige concentrated in May and June on assisting with the RCI Relay for Life. As a result, she decided to delay the CHEO Chicks sale until August.

Paige Dillabough with her Spirit of the Capital Personal Courage Award presented to her by Child & Youth Friendly Ottawa. The Renfrew teenager was one of 16 youths presented with the award this year for exhibiting courage in face of adversity. Within a year of suffering a malignant brain tumour in 2003, Paige was raising money for the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario to show her appreciation for the care she had received there. Now a 14-year-old student going into Grade 10 at RCI, Paige, with help from her CHEO Chicks friends, has raised about $26,000 for CHEO. She and her family and friends have also raised more than $60,000 for Candlelighters, an organization that supports children with cancer. Paige was nominated for the prestigious award by CHEO case workers, impressed by her spirit and resolve. The award was presented to Paige at a gala awards presentation at the Crown Plaza Hotel in downtown Ottawa in May. Among the 500 people in attendance were Paige’s parents, brother, grandparents and several friends.

Editorial KAYAKERS CRUISE LOCAL WATERWAYS

Your weekly smile This week the Renfrew Mercury Weekender brings a new feature to your doorstep. Ottawa Valley folk have long been known for their sharp wit and endearing love of a good joke, so your free community newspaper is happy to bring you Tundra. In 2008 Tundra was awarded the Reuben Award by the National Cartoonist Society for best in newspaper panel cartoons. Laughter is good for your health. It relaxes the body, boosts the immune system, triggers the release of endorphins and protects the heart. Twenty-five years ago Sam J. Ervin Jr. scripted one of the best descriptions we’ve ever heard of humour, in a book called Humour of a Country Lawyer. We share it with you to celebrate the launch of Tundra. Humor is one of God’s most marvellous gifts. Humor gives us smiles, laughter, and gaiety. Humor reveals the roses and hides the thorns. Humor makes our heavy burden light and smooths the rough spots in our pathways. Humor endows us with the capacity to clarify the obscure, to simplify the complex, to deflate the pompous, to chastise the arrogant, to point a moral, and to adorn a tale. We hope this new cartoon, by Chad Carpenter, brightens your day and makes you smile. Lucy Hass

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

A pool is more than a hole in the ground To the editor: I wonder about the one boater who manages to swim to safety, when a boat capsizes, and others who do not. Starting at age eight I learned boating and camping skills at a Haliburton summer camp, but I never really learned to swim in Moose Lake. That happened in my high school pool. Those swimming skills would allow me to earn much-needed income as a student lifeguard and as a camp canoe guide, to travel to New Brunswick as a varsity swimmer, to teach whitewater kayaking and canoeing in Barry’s Bay, to raft guide on the Ottawa River, and over a lifetime to safely guide 700 youngsters on wilderness canoe trips. As an Opeongo High School teacher I experienced how poorly most students swam during pre-testing for outers canoe trips to Algonquin Park. These were keen, athletic, fit students who could barely swim eight consecutive lengths of Arnprior’s pool. If you swim one hour every day in a lake from June 1 to September, starting at the age of eight, you will be 118

TUNDRA

years old when you complete the 10,000 hours of practice that sport psychologists indicate is required to master any physical activity like swimming. Swimming in a pool four days a week for 1.5 hours will accomplish the same at 40 years of age. Swim six days a week for three hours and you may be an Olympian four months after your 18th birthday. That is 100 years sooner than lake swimming. I like to recall Johnny Weismuellers’ story about falling overboard while boating off the California coast. The boat kept going. He knew it would run out of gas and the coast guard would find it. He was 10 miles from shore so he decided to swim home. What would you expect from expect Tarzan. Weismueller had been an Olympian before switching from speedo to leopard loincloth. Back in those days one swam crawl with your head above water. That this why you never see Tarzan’s head below water in the underwater film shots as he outswims the crocodiles.

Fortunately, Canadians don’t have to outswim the ‘crocs.’ Unfortunately, without adequate aquatic skills, at worst, some will still perish in the water; at the very least, miss opportunities to experience the country with the most freshwater lakes and rivers on the planet. P.S. As a recipient of the Red Cross boat safety award and the Royal Life Saving Society distinction award, I know they advise staying with a capsized boat. This assumes: 1. Someone is around to rescue you; 2. You are not in moving water where your boat may injure you; 3. The water is warm enough to prevent hypothermia; 4. You are not above a falls or rapids that will kill you; 5. The boat doesn’t sink or separate from you; and 6. You lack the skill to perform a deep-water self-rescue with your canoe, kayak or sail boat. Joe Schwartz Douglas

Nature

A beneficial one Deliska Gaudreau has a new outdoor resident. It is a spider of the crab spider family. Crab spiders are the assassins of the insect world. They look like the sand crabs that scurry along ocean beaches but are much smaller and deadlier. They do not weave a web but lie in wait for an unsuspecting morsel of food to pass by. When their meal arrives they quickly dart out and give their prey a venomous bite. They are not harmful to humans because their fangs cannot penetrate our skin. Crab spiders have the ability to camouflage themselves and are able to change colour from white to yellow to correspond to the colours in the flowers where they wait for prey. SOME STRANGE INSECTS LIVE IN OUR WATERWAYS I received an e-mail from Dave Beck at Constant Lake asking for help to identify a rather unusual insect. Hi Jim: A young lady by the name of Jeannine McCallum on Constant Lake brought an insect over for identification, which of course I couldn’t do. So once again I am relying on your expertise. It was under water on a rock. The only thing I could think of was a stone fly, but I don’t believe it is that. I could use your help. Thanks for your effort. I am sending the picture under a different heading as I have dial up and it takes forever to download even though I have it compressed. Hi Dave and Jeannine:

The insect is a water scorpion (Ranatra fusca), a very unusual water insect and a beneficial one. They are the underwater version of assassin bugs. They have two pairs of hind legs that they use to propel them through the water. The front pair of legs has been modified for grasping their prey, which they dispatch with a quick bite from their short beak. They will eat any underwater bug, fish or tadpole they can catch. The water scorpion is about two and a half inches long including their breathing tubes which protrude from the last segment of their abdomen. They require air every so often and extend their breathing tubes, which look like stingers, above the surface to breathe. Water scorpions are skinny and often mistaken for a blade of grass, especially since they crawl about very slowly under water and often sit motionless for long periods of time. A LUNA MOTH Mick Mahusky at Ashdad had a lime green Luna moth arrive at his front door this week. It seems rather

A crab spider – one of the good ones – photographed by Deliska Gaudreau. late for this giant silkworm moth to be still in the area. They have usually completed the breeding season by this time. These large moths have only one brood per year this far north but in the south several broods are possible. The food plants of the larvae vary from the leaves of sweetgums in the south to birch, apple, plum and cherry in the north. The large lime green larvae are about two inches (5 cm) long and one half inch (1 cm) in diameter. Their cocoon is brown and about three inches (8 cm) long. The adult will emerge in the spring to mate and for the female to lay her eggs. Speaking of Nature. Jim Ferguson, 5313 River Road, R.R.5, Renfrew, Ont., K7V 3Z8.

The skies cleared for the Sunday morning mass at the Shrine of St. Ann in Cormac July 26. Mercury Weekender photos by LUCY HASS

Gift of the Eucharist celebrated at Shrine to St. Ann at Cormac LUCY HASS lucy.hass@metroland.com Beneath the towering pines in Cormac, the faithful gathered July 26 for a pilgrimage to the beautiful Shrine to St. Ann. For the past 71 years, people from far and wide have celebrated devotion to Saint Ann, the grandmother of Jesus. Four days of prayer and reflection culminated Sunday with a Shrine mass in the morning, followed by a 2 p.m. mass for the sick and anointing with St. Ann’s Oil. “So many graces flow from a pilgrimage like this,” Bishop Michael Mulhall told Sunday’s 11 a.m. gathering. Bishop Mulhall was the principal celebrant and homilist for the pilgrimage and triduum of masses Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings. Over the weekend numerous intercessions were made to St. Ann, whose spirit was the centre of prayer and reflection. In Sunday morning’s homily, Bishop Mulhall said the gifts St. Ann saw in Jesus’ mother Mary, of peace and trustfulness, are the same gifts God sees in his people. After sharing the gospel story of the fish and the loaves, Bishop Mulhall focused on the gift and the mystery of the Eucharist, a summer-long theme for the Catholic faith. “Nothing inhibits God from giving us what we need,” he said. “God loves to the end.”

Politics MP reminds constituents of fast-approaching summer deadlines As the last country to be affected by the global economic slowdown, there are signs that the recovery, though still very fragile, has begun in Canada. While this recession started beyond our borders, as a trading nation we knew our economy would be affected. That’s why our Conservative government presented the earliest federal budget in history last January. That budget outlined Canada’s Economic Action Plan – a timely, targeted and temporary plan to save and protect jobs today, while preparing for the economy of tomorrow. Since January, we’ve been implementing our plan as quickly and effectively as possible. As your MP, I am pleased to have been able to deliver millions of dollars in economic stimulus funding to our Riding. Now, I am looking forward as our government prepares budget 2010. I personally invite you to make your voice heard. Prime Minister Stephen Harper is asking for all Canadians to provide their input – in person or in writing to their local Member of Parliament– as part of our regular pre-budget consultation hearings. Many of the recommendations flowing out of this consultation pro-

cess from places like Renfrew, Arnprior, Deep River, Pembroke, Eganville, Calabogie and Barry’s Bay, and are implemented in the federal budget. Businesses, organizations and individuals are invited to participate in this important process. It would be appreciated to receive your input in time for the start of the fall session of Parliament. With our wet summer half over, I remind constituents of several other deadlines. Homeowners who are considering renovations, have six months left to take advantage of the Home Renovation Tax Credit. In addition to saving hundreds of dollars on income taxes, renovations often lead to reduced energy

costs and increases in the value of the home. Best of all, every time Canadians invest in renovations, they are also helping create construction and buildingsupplies jobs to keep your neighbours working. A key component in Canada’s Economic Action Plan, the Home Renovation Tax Credit provides a 15% income tax credit on eligible home renovation expenditures for work performed or goods acquired between Jan. 27, 2009 and Feb. 1, 2010. The credit may be claimed on expenditures exceeding $1,000 but not more than $10,000 and will provide up to $1,350 in tax relief. The Competency of Operators of Pleasure Craft Regulations require operators of pleasure craft fitted with a motor and used for recreational purposes to have proof of competency on board at all times. Proof of competency can take 1 of 3 forms: 1. A Pleasure Craft Operator Card; 2. Proof of having successfully completed a boating safety course in Canada prior to April 1, 1999; or, 3. A completed rental-boat safety checklist. The operator card is good-for-life. The deadline to obtain proof of competency is required on board by Sept. 15, 2009. For more

information about either of these deadlines, please contact my constituency office. As your Federal Member of Parliament, I am pleased to represent you on a variety of issues. Whether that issue is eliminating the long gun registry, promoting agriculture,

international trade, AECL, the military or jobs in the working forest, I am here to serve you. As always, if you have any concerns of a federal nature, or just want to share your views with me, please do not hesitate to contact my office. Office contact informa-

tion: Constituency Office of Cheryl Gallant, MP, 84 Isabella St., Pembroke On. K8A 5S5 or call 732-4404. If you are long distance you may call the office toll-free at 1-866-295-7165. There is no postage required when you write your Federal Member of Parliament.

MP welcomes changes to Marine Liability Act MP Cheryl Gallant welcomed the passing into law, amendments to the Marine Liability Act that will benefit the adventure tourism industry. “Changes to this legislation were a priority for our party as the Government of Canada. I had been seeking changes on behalf of constituents in my Riding of Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke who derive their employment from the adventure tourism industry, by introducing a number of Private Members Bills in the previous Parliaments,” said Gallant. “Thank you to Municipal councils, like Whitewater Region Council, which is home to some of the finest whitewater rafting in the world, for passing motions, to protect adventure tourism, and the jobs it brings not only to Renfrew County, but to Canadians involved in this activity right across Canada,” Gallant said in a recent news release. “Adventure tourism companies like Wilderness Tours, Madawaska Canu Centre and River Run, all made representa-

tions to me about the need to amend the Marine Liability Act to allow them to continue in business. “Changes made to the Marine Liability Act in 2001 by the old government benefited large shipping companies like Canada Steamship Lines. “However, the unforeseen consequences of legislated compulsory insurance onto adventure tourism operators threatened their entire industry,” the local MP said. In 2004 Gallant introduced a Private Member’s Bill, An Act to Amend the Marine Liability Act. “Specifically, my private member’s bill would have amended section 37 of the Marine Liability Act to exempt adventure tourism activities such as whitewater rafting and sea kayaking as well as any other recreational marine activity from the compulsory insurance requirements of the Marine Liability Act as it relates to the carriage of passengers,” Gallant said.

Fun brings everyone together. Having fun, making new friends and learning new skills in a positive environment. Three reasons why your local Tim Hortons is so proud to support all the boys and girls who play Timbits Soccer in Renfrew. The first goal is having fun®

Four teams remain in Ma-Te-Way championship hunt PETER CLARK peter.clark@metroland.com The chase for the 2009 Ma-Te-Way Slo Pitch League title is down to the final four. All quarterfinal series came to an end Monday night, and the three winners join defending league champion BobSledz in the semifinal round. BobSledz earned an opening-round bye on the strength of their first-place finish.

Special Olympians bring softball gold medals home to Renfrew PETER CLARK peter.clark@metroland.com It’s not a weekend Renfrew’s Special Olympians will soon forget. At the Provincial Special Olympics Summer Games at the Mic Mac Fields in Windsor, the local squad took to the field seven times and came home with the coveted gold medals. “They are justifiably proud,” coach Frank Belanger said. “They played really well. They made us coaches very proud of them.” Renfrew competed in the ‘D’ division that featured 16 teams. Coach Belanger noted that the Renfrew team – sporting new uniforms provided by the Renfrew Millionaires Oldtimers Hockey Club – played two seeding games, and four in their own pool, before coming up against La Salle of Windsor in the gold medal game. Renfrew had beaten, and then came from behind to tie the host team in previous encounters. They also battled Chatham in pool play. The Renfrew Special Olympians left nothing to chance

in the gold-medal final. They came out swinging the bats, jumped into the lead early, and earned gold on the strength of a 15-5 victory. The local team’s schedule did them few favours as they were forced to play back-to-back games twice in the tournament. “They represented Renfrew very well,” Belanger said of each player and the team overall. The coach gave special mention to Marcel Mathieu, who suffered an injury after taking a ball off the nose while playing first base, a position he is not accustomed to. But he refused to leave the game. “He toughed it out for the team,” Belanger observed, “and he made the last out (defensively) of the gold medal game. It was a great way to end the tournament.” Renfrew is known for its discipline and sportsmanship at Special Olympics events, and because of that, Belanger hopes the softball team will be invited to the national Special Olympics event. They should know in the next month. The Special Olympians celebrated their triumph with a pizza party compliments of Barry Breen of Barry Breen Insurance.

PROTRYE, ZIG ZAG SWEEP ProTyre finished off a best-of-five sweep of Aikenhead’s Drug Store 19-9. Neil Lockwood, Mitch Cherry and Dan Lavallee homered for ProTyre. Stephane Lapensee posted the pitching win over Bobby Lavallee. Zig Zag blanked Subway 21-0 behind Mark Smith’s impressive outing. Smith tossed a fivehit shutout and didn’t allow a runner past second base. Mark Simons homered, and Kevin Pennock and Brian Vander Ploeg each collected three hits and three runs scored for Zig Zag. BEIMERS ADVANCES IN FOUR GAMES Ottawa Valley Glass stayed alive with a dramatic 14-13 win over Beimers before Beimers ended the series in four games with a 14-10 triumph. OVG overcame a 13-7 deficit to claim game three. Adam Murphy’s single scored pitch runner Jon Lowe on a bang-bang play at the plate in the bottom of the seventh inning to win it. Frank Meilleur, Dan St. Michael and Sean Smith slugged round-trippers for OVG in support of pitcher Rob Essiambre. Mark Wright launched a pair of three-run shots and Tim O’Connor a lead-off blast for Beimers. O’Connor and Denver Mullen had four hits. Chad Mullen, Tom Cobus and Chad Miller went deep for Beimers in the series-clinching 14-10 win. Miller also made a pair of stellar defensive plays in right field to quell a pair of would-be OVG rallies. Essiambre, Lowe and Shane Lambert homered to stake Ottawa Valley Glass to a 10-6 lead, before Beimers pitcher Shannon Manion shut them down on just one hit and no runs after the second inning. A note from game two July 27, teams are allotted three home runs per game, but on the baseball (Seeley) field, that number is open. Beimers actually hit five home runs in game two. Sean Lecuyer launched a pair and Tim O’Connor, Chad Mullen and Mark Wright one each. See MA-TE-WAY PLAYOFFS on Page 15

The idea is to adopt an entire community in El Salavador and provide the support, and guidance to improve their village by addressing the issues noted by RI President John Kenny – water, health & hunger and literacy. A major event happening ‘just on our doorstep’ is the Rotary International Conventional, taking place in Montreal in 2010. Tubman notes that the Renfrew club intends to play an active role in the convention, with several members already signed up as volunteers, as well as hosting a dinner for visiting Rotarians in a Montreal restaurant.

By JUDITH GILCHRIST July 1 of each year is the official ‘change over’ for Rotary Clubs around the world, when a new President takes the lead for his or her club. This year Marg Tubman steps in as the Rotary Club of Renfrew’s President for 2009-2010. Marg is the second woman to hold the position in the Renfrew club, which was originally chartered in 1922. The Rotary Club of Renfrew has a long history of playing a lead role in supporting the Renfrew community. Rotary Homes, established in 1956, continues to offer affordable housing to seniors or those on a limited income. The Homes continue to be managed through support from the club and is in the process of some needed updating. Renfrew Victoria Hospital and the Hospice has been well supported by Rotary for special and capital projects. Support of these facilities ensures ongoing, firstclass health care for the area. The club is very active in International Youth exchange, which offers a terrific opportunity for young people to experience the culture and language of another country for either a short or longterm placement. Many local youth have benefited from this experience, and the club has had the pleasure of hosting an incoming student each year. The Rotary Club of Renfrew is part of Rotary International district 7040 that includes portions of Ontario, Quebec and New York. The Rotary International theme for 2009, The Future of Rotary Is in Your Hands set by RI President John Kenny (Scotland), calls upon Rotarians to take action. Kenny notes that, “the future of Rotary will not be shaped at RI headquarters – it will be shaped in each and every Rotary club.” Kenny urges districts and clubs to develop projects locally and internationally, to emphasis water, health and hunger, and literacy. Marg is not intending to recreate what is already working, however, she supports the Rotary International direction of taking a look at where the club is going and making some plans to continue that positive path. Succession planning is of key importance to keep the club moving forward and providing essential support to projects both on a local level and internationally.

Community 2,600 teddy bears head off for the children of Uganda PETER CLARK peter.clark@metroland.com Delaney Holley, Miss Teen Ottawa, has achieved her goal of collecting 2,000 teddy bears and raising $4,000 for the Teddy Bears of Hope Campaign, which is affiliated with the Miss Teen Canada International Pageant. Delaney will travel to Toronto on Aug. 8, where she will spend a week with the other delegates from across Canada, vying for the title of Miss Teen Canada International 2010. The pageant will be held on Saturday, Aug. 15 at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre, Exhibition Place in Toronto. Delaney thanks everyone who supported the Teddy Bears of Hope Campaign by donating teddy bears, buying Mr. Freezies, participating in yard sales, and a bake sale and car wash/barbecue, plus those giving space for drop-off spots, providing transportation and donating money. “We thought that 2,000 (teddy bears collected) would be a tough job,” Delaney observed. “Everybody in the community jumped in.” A lot of heart-warming stories have come to the forefront since Delaney first brought up the Teddy Bears for Hope Campaign at St. Joseph’s Catholic High School. “The response from businesses and individuals has been enthusiastic and generous,” she said. • Children were parting with their loved stuffed animals so that a child in Uganda could have something to hold onto and love.

JOHN CARTER john.carter@metroland.com If the bridge stays, it should be widened. That’s the contention of Greater Madawaska council when it comes to County of Renfrew plans to replace its Constant Creek Bridge, one of the last one-lane bridges left on a major route in the Valley. Council has sent the county a letter reiterating its position that its first choice of the three main options would be to divert Ferguson Lake Road around Pat’s Lake to avoid the bridge completely. However, council is dubious such a change in the route would be allowed because of environmental concerns. If road diversion is ruled out, council is strongly in favour of expanding the bridge, built in 1926, to two lanes. “It would be ludicrous to keep it a single-lane bridge in this day and age and given there is that much traffic,” said Reeve Peter Emon. “They should realize a number of large trucks regularly use that road,” added Coun. John Pratt. Our preferred option is not to have the bridge,” Emon explained. “If that’s not possible, then at least make it double lane,” he said. Coun. Karin Lehnhardt said comments by county officials aren’t making her hopeful the bridge is going to be expanded to two lanes. Emon said Renfrew County council has not received a recommendation from staff yet, but it is possible staff could opt for leaving the bridge one lane. Coun. Tom Ryan suggested it will take a long time to get all approvals needed, no matter which option is chosen. Coun. Don Mercier agreed, noting it took the county five years to get around to replacing another bridge in the township. Emon noted if the road diversion is approved, the township should make it clear that it will not be assuming any roads left surplus without negotiation. The county has already rejected closing the road and making use of other roadways in the area, concluding it wouldn’t be practical because of the need to provide emergency services and reasonable travel times. After determining the bridge is reaching the end of its service life, the County held an open house June 18 at the DACA Centre to explain the six design alternatives to fix or replace the bridge and realign Ferguson Lake Road. The first two would entail replacing the bridge with either a one- or two-lane structure. Alternatives three through five would see the bridge site moved, one east of the existing bridge and two to the west. The final option would see Ferguson Lake Road shifted along the south shore of Pat’s Lake avoiding the need for a bridge all-together. A second open house will be held this fall after a preferred alternative is selected.

Borrowing money keeps farmers poor I can’t understand how beef, hog and cash-crop farmers can take out a loan and expect to be able to pay it off in the short term. Borrowing money must be in style. It is! Statistics Canada says Canadian farmers continue to take on more debt. It’s now up to $58 billion. Ontario farmers owed the most of all the provinces – $14.2 billion. That’s up $3 billion from five years ago. Chartered banks loaned farmers $6.2 billion, FCC held loans of $4.6 billion. The other $3.3 billion comes from credit unions and federal government’s so-called interest-free Emergency Advance Program. You’d think that with the poor prices hog and beef farmers have been getting for their animals, the last thing they’d want to do is go into more debt. Cash-crop farmers are in the same boat. Their returns look rosy in the spring, but prices tank come fall. That government interest-free loan might look good on the surface, but is it? Do farmers need to buy more land and upgrade their machinery at a time when returns bounce like a yo-yo. Those loans, no matter the interest rate, have to be paid back. Do farmers want more stress on their hands – for themselves and their family? As with every interestfree loan, there are costs the borrower pays up front, such as an administration fee. ACC Farmers’ Financial is Canada’s production and storage financing specialist – featuring the Advance Payment Program (APP) and Ontario’s Commodity Loan Program (CLP). Under APP farmers can get $100,000 interest free and get the next $300,000 at prime rate. CLP will loan farmers

Ontario farmers owed the most of all the provinces – $14.2 billion. up to $750,000. A month ago, Ontario Farmer published a letter from a beef farmer who pointed out some interesting facts of the APP money. The farmer said he took advantage of the federal interest-free Emergency Advance Program (under the APP) that was offered to farmers in the spring of 2008. “Those interest-free funds were welcomed in my beef cow/calf operation and even more welcome after selling my calves last fall for a much lower price than I had budgeted for,” he wrote. “As repayment of the interest free advance was due by September 2009, much was on my mind as to where I could muster the funds to satisfy this deadline. Fortunately, in late winter Federal Ag Minister Ritz announced that the deadline for repayment of the loan would be extended to September 2010. I was in contact with many producers that had taken the advance and they were like me thankful for the extended repayment time,” he wrote. “Just a couple of weeks ago I received an envelope from ACC regarding the

extended payment deadline. I read the first part, thought all we had to do was sign the document and send it back. In discussion with another producer he tells me, “you better read the complete document, you got to send them money and much more money than the original fee,” he wrote. “I did read the complete document: my first concern is with the form heading, “Stay of Default Agreement”? The payment deadline was extended, what is this thing?” “Then we get to the fees. I paid a $500 administration fee originally, and this was quite acceptable, but in the document forwarded to me ACC is now requesting another $1,000 from me with $250 refundable. “This interest-free advance may be interest-free, but the administration fees are now out of control and excessive,” he wrote. The farmer said there are approximately 450 beef producers who took the Advance Program. Do the arithmetic. He said ACC is about to remove hundreds of thousands of dollars from Ontario beef producers at a time when we are still trying to recover from BSE in 2003. I wouldn’t quibble about administration fees. That’s peanuts on interestfree money. But, it’s still an expense. Farmers could have trouble paying back such a loan – unless they have a well paying job off the farm. But then they wouldn’t need a loan. Or would they?

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. The Shelter is holding its Bottle Drive, any donations would be appreciated. Supplies the shelter needs: Paper towels, Cat litter (Non clumping and clumping), Canned dog food, Large scratching posts, Window cleaner.

Focus on family, friends and fun at Spencer fundraising tournament Fun and friendship was a fitting focus at the Dennis Spencer benefit golf tournament July 25 at the Roanoke Golf Club. The winners of the best ball tournament were the team of Jason Robertson, Rod Gallant, Phil Cull and Lou Lebrun. Special competitions winners were: women’s closest to the line Shirley Badgley; men’s closest to the line Bob Hannaberry; women’s closest to pin Candace Griffin; men’s closest to pin Brent Beckett; and men’s closest to pin second shot Stewart Campbell. George’s Marine sponsored a holein-one contest for an ATV, and while the prize wasn’t won the closest drive was by Steve Benoit. Teams captained by brothers James and Ozzie Zohr tied for most honest golfers. After a cut of the cards the team of James Zohr, Lucy Hass, and Jim and Lois Chretien defeated Ozzie’s team of wife Dale, brother Bob and niece Sarah. The event was enjoyed by 127 golfers and 23 people who joined the group for dinner at the Roanoke golf course. The best-ball tournament and silent auction generated $10,000 for a fund established to recoup $33,000 in air ambulance expenses after Spencer was shot this past

March while working in Honduras. The 59-year-old Pembroke man was seriously injured after being caught in the crossfire of rival Honduran gangs. The golf tournament – organized by brother-in-law Ed Gionet and wife Carol Ann Zohr and others – brings the total amount raised to help cover the air ambulance bill to about $25,000. Donations can still be made by cheque to the Dennis Spencer Trust Fund by mail to Ed and Carol Ann Gionet at 621 Eady Road, R.R. 1, Golden Lake, Ont. K0J 1X0 or at the Pembroke branch of the CBIC, transit 00806, account number 149763. In a brief thank you address after the tournament dinner, Spencer and wife Barb thanked all who attended. Spencer said he was also looking forward to progressing quickly. “I’ve had a lot of time in the past few months to reflect,” he said. His conclusion, he said, is that he is a very fortunate man. “I’m surrounded by wonderful friends, family and acquaintances,” he said. He also had kind words for his Honduran friends and the many wonderful people he has worked with in that country. “We are all the same,” said Spencer.

In loving memory of a Dear Wife and mother Joan Smith who passed away August 9 2006

Our lives go on without you, But nothing is the same! We try to hide our heartaches, Silent are the tears that fall. When someone speaks your name. Sad are the hearts that love you, Living our lives without you is the hardest part, But we cherish all the special years we had And so much you taught us is a part of us today. With love in our hearts and great memories you will be there forever.

Congratulations BRENDA QUAST, CA Doug and Ruth Quast are proud to announce Brenda’s graduation from the University of Ottawa and the obtaining of her CA designation.

Lovingly remembered and greatly missed CL16099

Brenda is currently employed at Connelly & Koshy Professional Corporation in Ottawa.

GRIESE, Greg In loving memory of a Husband, Father and Grandfather who passed away August 5, 2008 Those whom we love go out of sight But never out of mind; They are cherished in the hearts Of those they left behind. Loving and kind in all his ways Upright and just in all his days Sincere and true in heart and mind Beautiful memories he left behind. LOVE Joan and family

There’s a face that’s with us ever, There’s a voice we long to hear, A smile we’ll remember, forever, Though we try to forget every tear. There’s sad but sweet remembrance, There’s memory fond and true, There’s a token of affection, dear, And heartache still for you. Love, Glenn, Dawn, and Grant
