JUST DUCKY

Autumn is here and ducks, like this mallard, are on the move across the region. The local duck hunting season opened Sept. 19 and ends Jan. 3. In the coming weeks, sportsmen and sportswomen across Renfrew County will prepare for the 2009 hunt, which kicks off with the annual moose hunt Oct. 19 to 24, followed by the deer hunt Nov. 2 to 15, and again Nov. 30 to Dec. 6. Every year business and industry across the region feels the impact of the hunt, whether in employee holidays or local grocery stores reaping the benefit of long camp shopping lists. The bow season for deer runs alternate dates: Oct. 1 to Nov. 1, then again Nov. 16 to 19 and Dec. 7 to 31. Mercury Weekender photo by LUCY HASS

Toyota stalemate still unresolved

LUCY HASS lucy.hass@metroland.com Renfrew council is standing firm to its decision that George Jackson Toyota must post a $750,000 letter of credit prior to construction of a new dealership off Whitton Road. Council reduced a $1.5 million 100 per cent security to 50 per cent, but dealership owner David LaRocque and manager Warren LaRocque say the $750,000 security is still too onerous. A packed council chamber attended Monday’s meeting where both sides stated their case. “This issue is larger than George Jackson Toyota’s relocation to Whitton Road,” said Warren LaRocque. He expressed his disappointment with council and charged the elected body didn’t do its best job. He called council’s lack of communication “very puzzling.” “We are stymied by the silence of the council,” he said. Warren said, considering the current weak economy and bleak job market, council should be working to protect jobs. He called the town’s security policy “outdated” and makes Renfrew uncompetitive. Toyota gave examples of municipalities with vastly-reduced security requirements, but Renfrew countered with a list of local municipalities with similar rates. The only exception was Petawawa, which requires absolutely no credit. David Larocque accused council of not doing its research.

“It’s been a terrible experience here,” he said. Security requirements, he said, “must be affordable and reasonable.” David LaRocque closed his address with a quote from Helen Keller – “It’s a terrible thing to see and have no vision.” Renfrew director of development and works Mike Asselin gave a presentation on the local planning process. While no actual cash is being demanded of Toyota, Asselin presented two bank quotes on the cost of securing a $750,000 line of credit – $10,000 to $15,000 per year. When the LaRocques asked to respond, the request was denied. Coun. Bill Ringrose said Toyota’s presentation was a deputation, not a debate, and they could schedule another council appearance. It was a suggestion that drew moans of disapproval from the pro-Toyota crowd. In the end, the two sides agreed to disagree and now leave the matter in the hands of the Ontario Municipal Board, which Toyota contacted earlier to file an appeal. “Shame,” Warren LaRocque said as the session closed, a comment echoed by some audience members as they filed out of the council chamber and shook hands with Toyota owner David LaRocque as they left the room. The meeting will be aired by Cogeco Cable 22 next Wednesday, Oct. 7 at 9 p.m. For more on the meeting, see the Tuesday, Oct. 6 edition of The Renfrew Mercury.

Accolades for Bishop Water Technologies Twice in September, Bishop Water Technologies has received accolades from prestigious environmental associations for its work with geotube dewatering technology at the sewage treatment plant in Eganville. At the fifth annual biosolids and residuals conference in Niagara Falls Sept. 14, the Water Environment Association of Ontario gave third prize to Matthew Green for his technical paper. Entitled The Geotube: Bonnechere Valley Township Solution to Septage and Biosolids Management, the paper was in the new professional category, for people who have been in the water or waste-water industry for less than five years and are

under the age of 35. “It was an honour,” said Green, who works in client communication. A week later, the Industrial Fabric Association International honoured the same project as the winner in the geo-synthetic category. Meanwhile, Bishop Water Technologies has geotube technology proposals in the works in such places as Brampton, Gananoque, Colbourne, Hanover and Perth. “It is encouraging to see such interest in the geotube and in alternative methods to managing sludge, not only in Ontario, but across the world,” says CEO Kevin Bossy.

Matthew Green and chief executive officer Kevin Bossy of Bishop Water Technologies display one of the geotube bags used to collect septage and biosolids before they are dewatered and treated. Mercury Weekender photo by STEVE NEWMAN

Art sought for 2009 RVH Christmas card invited to contact Barb Desilets, director of the RVH Foundation, at 613-432-4851, ext. 263. Submitted pieces will be displayed at the October 6 reception, where tribute will be made to the artists and works that have been featured in past years. “It’s a nice opportunity to get people involved,” says Wakely, who says the Tree of Lights cards has helped to promote the work of the local arts community. “It opens up the eyes of the community to what local artists are doing,” she says. Desilets says the artwork has become an important aspect of the Tree of Lights tradition. She notes that many recipients have saved their cards through the years, and developed a nice collection of prints by area residents. “The artwork adds a sophisticated touch that brings this campaign full circle,” Desilets says. “We’re reaching out to our community for their continued support, and we’re doing it hand-in-hand with our artists as we celebrate their incredible talent and imagination.” “We live in an incredible community, and this is a great way to celebrate that,” Desilets says. “I would urge anyone who likes to sketch or paint to contact me.”

Local artists are invited to go through their portfolios this week, looking for works that might make a nice Christmas card. The Renfrew Victoria Hospital (RVH) Foundation has joined forces with the Renfrew Art Guild to invite submissions for this year’s Tree of Lights fundraising campaign, which will support the $3 million CT project now underway. Candidate paintings and sketches will be displayed at a special reception at Trinity St. Andrew’s Church Hall next Tuesday evening, October 6, where a panel of judges will choose the cover of this year’s card. Tree of Lights is the signature event of the year for the RVH Foundation. Each year, a beautiful Christmas card is sent to hospital supporters inviting them to make a financial contribution to support quality health care at RVH. The cards always feature the artwork of a local artist. “It’s a privilege to be chosen as the Tree of Lights artist,” comments Diana Wakely, founding member and president of the Renfrew Art Guild. Two of her own works have adorned Tree of Lights cards in the past, and she is excited about the selection of this year’s featured art. Anyone interested in participating is

Citizen involvement is a good thing An honest effort is never a bad thing. So, as the town’s recreation master plan process unfolds, it should be noted Renfrew is blessed, not cursed, to have an active citizenry. A recent editorial by associate editor John Carter expressed his opinion that Renfrew’s swimming pool and second ice pad committees just can’t get along and never could. I disagree. Some very honest and serious time and effort has been invested by good people on both sides of the pool/ice pad debate. These are business owners, employees, parents, sons and daughters, people who have many other demands

TUNDRA

EDITOR’S NOTEBOOK

Lucy Hass and pressures on their lives. There is so much more they could be doing rather than sitting on volunteer committees, trying to push forward programs and services that will serve others citizens as

well as themselves. The record clearly shows that joint efforts have been attempted in the past. But if our elected politicians – who are paid richly with taxpayer dollars for their service – can’t reach the most simple of consensus, who are we to criticize any fellow citizen who cares to volunteer for a cause? What’s most important is that we keep talking. During a recent office conversation about emerging technologies and the advancement of communication tools like YouTube, I was torn. When I think of YouTube, three descriptions spring to mind – often silly, sometimes dangerous, and

always democratic. Technology gives everyone a voice, which is a wonderful thing. Wonderful, of course, unless that freedom is used to hate-monger, spread false accusations, tout untruths or hurt another human being. In a world of lightningfast technology, where tweets and twitters are exchanged with mindless abandon, we want to encourage healthy debate. Disagreement can plant the seed for innovative solutions to old problems. If you disagree with us, please share your opinion, in a respectful manner, in a letter to the editor. Signed, of course.


To the editor: As an interested taxpayer, I attended the council meeting on Sept. 28 to become more informed on the stalemate between George Jackson Toyota and the Town of Renfrew. I felt that the dealer representatives gave an excellent presentation of their point of view. However, I was surprised to see the lack of action on behalf of our town representatives. It seemed to me that the councillors had decided, as a unit, to keep discussions behind closed doors. Is it not the duty of elected officials to keep the public informed in special circumstances such as these since it has impact upon everyone within the community? Thanks to the Toyota persons who diligently, through newspaper items, attempted to inform the public of the situation. I was embarrassed when, at the close of the council presentation, one of our elected officials rudely refused to allow the Toyota representative to clarify two items from the Power Point presentation. It was at this point that I was ashamed to be a Renfrewite. I think it is past the time for us to have some common-sense government and open debate on issues directly involving citizens of our community. Douglas Sidock Renfrew

In whom do you trust? By MAJOR GLENN WIRACHOWSKY Salvation Army Renfrew Community Church The question is: “In whom do you trust?� For me, in my household my trust is in You, O God. What can this world do to me unless you allow it! For you have already delivered me from death, and have stopped my feet from stumbling, so that I may walk before you in the light of life. You are precious to God. Even the hairs on our heads are numbered. When we call upon Jesus Christ to be the Lord of our lives, we are assured that goodness and mercy will follow us all the days of our lives, and we will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. You have never left me, O Lord! Whether asleep or awake, I am still with you, says the Lord God almighty. In whom do you trust? I trust in you, O Lord, for you are my God. I am safe, for my times are in Your hands.

Nature THE BEAR ESSENTIALS

A motion-detector camera on Bert Miller’s property captured these images of bears in the area. At left, a bear enjoys a snack of apples; at right, cubs with parent nearby.

Cocoons and cells provide for change When the caterpillar reaches the proper size and nutritional level, it seeks out a protected place where it can pupate (or undergo change). Many species spin a tight or loose cocoon of silk, which they secrete from modified salivary glands and spin from a spinneret located below their chewing mouth parts. Bits of soil, twigs, plant material and other debris may be used in the cocoon. If no cocoon is made, bits of leaves or pieces of debris may be tied together with silk to form a safe haven. Some caterpillars burrow into the soil and form a cell, as do the sphinx moths, Cecropia, Luna and Io, for example. A few other species like bagworms and sack bearers use cocoons to pupate as well. These cocoons take on many shapes each different for every species. All the caterpillars in the same family of moths usually prepare themselves for pupation in the same way. When a caterpillar is ready to pupate, it molts for the last time into the virtually inactive and helpless stage called the pupa (in butterflies this stage is called the chrysalis). In modern species, all the appendages are held against the body as the surrounding protective covering develops. The pupa then settles down to allow the changes to take place. The pupal stage may last for a few days or several months. Beneath the protective cover, chemical and body changes occur as the larval features are replaced by

adult features such as antennae, wings, legs and proboscis. Most of the time in the cocoon is spent resting especially in species that overwinter. The adult emerges when fully developed or when environmental factors, such as lengthening days warmer temperatures and increasing rainfall bring about an end to the development stage. In many species the coordination of the adult moth’s emergence, the hatching of eggs, the leafing of food plants and the flowering of nectar sources is very close. When ready the adult breaks the protective covering and drags itself out into the world. If the larvae developed in a cocoon the adult will secret a fluid that dissolves the tough cover of silk creating a hole for the adult to emerge. Some moths like the flannel moths have a trapdoor in

the cocoon that pops open when the moth pushes against it. Once the moth is out of the cocoon or other protective cover, it crawls onto the discarded cocoon or some other form of support and begins to pump blood into its limp, shriveled wings. Expansion and hardening of the wings may take an hour or more. It is during this time that the moths are most susceptible to attack The cocoon of a Gypsy Moth. by predators. Photo by BRIAN EADY When their wings are set for flight the moth is ready to take off and seek water, food and a mate. Many adult females find a larval food source and lay their eggs immediately after mating because predators, accidents, or extreme weather conditions may result in their death before they have a chance to reproduce.

asked what Nicholas was going to expect from Courtney on their first date after he takes her out for a nice meal. Therein lies a problem, she said, as evidenced by polls that indicate more than 70 per cent of boys and more than 60 per cent of girls actually believe one should return a kind act with something in return. Her message, obviously, is that encouragement for a good deed, or a thank-you, should be enough. “Your child wants you in there (in the bathroom) to wave goodbye to the bowel movement, you get in there to wave goodbye to the bowel movement!” exclaimed Colorosa. As Colorosa summarized in the handout provided to audience members, alternatives to abundant praise are encouragement, feedback (in the form of compliments, comments and constructive criticism), deep caring, and discipline. She was also quick to differentiate between discipline and punishment. “Discipline is something you do to a child; it’s a process,” stressed Colorosa. Punishment, on the other hand, is as it sounds. “You’re not supposed to have fun if you’re being punished. It’s all right to have fun if you’re being disciplined,” said Colorosa. Honest mistakes can be recognized by fixing those mistakes, like allowing grandma’s birthday cake to splat in the kitchen, only for Colorosa and her then 11-year-old daughter to fix the cake and deliver it intact. With everyone’s dignity left intact, too. See PARENTING, Page 8

GOOD-

The challenges of parenthood are never-ending, full of triumphs and satisfaction, frustrations and challenges, and questions that needed answers yesterday. Three of the best writers on parenting I’ve read are Michael Gurian (The Wonder of Boys), Phil McGraw (Family First), and Barbara Colorosa (kids are worth it!), so it was a treat to hear one of them speak last weekend. The guest speaker was Colorosa, just a few days shy of her 62nd birthday and not the least bit shy on offering advice that could help many parents in a society that is lacking in compassion and in need of spiritual and practical direction. Colorosa’s a former Franciscan nun, but if she was preaching at the audience of parents and teachers during the Renfrew County District School Board’s third annual symposium for parents last Saturday, it didn’t feel like it. At times, it felt like chastisement for not seeing the obvious. At times, by using the names of children of parents in the audience at Opeongo High School, she brought important messages closer to home. But if there’s anything she brought home, other than the sense many parents aren’t using the tools they could be using, it’s that our children have become reward-dependent and, therefore, less capable of growing into ethical, well-meaning, kind human beings. As the married mother of three children says in the introduction to her book, Just Because It’s Not Wrong Doesn’t Make it Right: It is in us to care. Hypothetical examples tend to screen listeners from important messages, but Colorosa used an effective technique to draw her audience closer. She used the names of two infants who are potty-training and whose parents were in the crowd of well over 100. She then spoke about the ineffectiveness of bribes, especially over the long term, and how it’s more important to provide encouragement for potty-training and so many other skills children are trying to learn. She then used the example of bribery, when she took the names of the two potty-training kids and fast-forwarded and

Education Parenting this generation with wit ,wisdom lesson many times, says Colorosa. For example, don’t accept bigoted and racist jokes in public. Identify such jokes as mean and ill-spirited and say so in front of your children. As another example, encourage your child to spend time with children who are being ostracized because they look, smell or wear their clothes differently. “You do not have to like every kid in your classroom, but you must honour their humanity,” advises Colorosa, reminding parents that the humanity in a child is not honoured if that child is reduced to an “it”. “Once a child makes another human being an it, you can do anything to them,” said Colorosa, advising that we “stop verbal bullying in its tracks.” The words also came, knowing she was off the same weekend to Boston to help a community reeling from the suicide of an 11-year-old who’d been bullied. Since bullying is a learned behaviour, the

behaviour can also be unlearned, she added. Whether the topic was punishment, reward-dependence, or bullying, Colorosa returned to two foundations of advice: • Parent children so they learn to think and act ethically. Accomplish this by giving children ways to care deeply, share generously and help willingly. • And make sure your children know they have your support by

reminding them of the six critical life messages: I believe in you, I trust you, I know you can handle this, you are listened to, you are cared for, and you are very important to me. Verbalize those messages but, even more importantly, live them. Because with that advice, parents will still go wrong, but not so often. steve.newman@metroland.com

Cont’d from Page 7 With mistakes, punishment is unnecessary, said the guest speaker. Instead, she suggested the four-step process of taking responsibility for the mistake, fixing it (like the cake), learning from it, and moving on. Colorosa stuck with the theme of rewarddependence, however. A fine example was how parents treat a child’s A+ marks when perhaps another child in the family isn’t doing nearly as well. Instead of boasting of their accomplishment, Colorosa advised parents to “get excited about their excitement.” Furthermore, get the child to talk about their own accomplishment. “Tell me about it,” she suggests the parent say to the child. Even better, if the A’s persist, expand that talent into, say, writing thank-you cards for those unable to do so at the local longterm-care home. Teaching children to care will carry on later in life, and parents will thank themselves for teaching and living that

Railway Avenue arson in Renfrew under investigation The Renfrew detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police responded to 179 calls for service during the past week. Renfrew OPP officers are investigating an arson at the Ottawa Valley Railway building on Railway Avenue near Xavier Avenue in Renfrew. Unknown persons forced their way into the building and set several small fires. The fires remained small and did not result in major damage. Const. Mark Condron is investigating. Anyone with information or who sees suspicious activity near the building is asked to call the OPP at 1-888-310-1122. MISCHIEF The back window of a 1998 Chevrolet Lumina was damaged overnight on Sept. 20. The vehicle was parked on Renfrew Avenue in Renfrew, where the window was struck and cracked. Some time overnight on Sept. 24, a mailbox on Dillabough Road in the Township of AdmastonBromley was damaged. An unknown person smashed the mailbox and knocked off the flag. There are no suspects. A vehicle was damaged while parked at a Vimy Boulevard residence in Renfrew on Sept. 23. The vehicle had a nail puncture a tire. The vehicle has been previously damaged in the same manner, but was never reported to the police. Anyone with related information, or to report suspicious activity in the area, call the OPP at 1-888-310-1122. IMPAIRED CHARGES On Sunday, Sept. 27 at about

10:30 a.m. Renfrew OPP officers responded to a report of a possible impaired driver in a UHaul truck on Raglan Street in Renfrew. The vehicle was located and the male driver was arrested at the scene for impaired driving. Following breathalyzer tests at the detachment, a 42-yearold male from Ottawa was charged with impaired driving and driving over 80 mgs. He was released from custody on a promise to appear in court in Renfrew Oct. 28. DOMESTIC INCIDENTS Renfrew OPP officers responded to three domestic disputes during the past week. One investigation resulted in charges of assault and breach of probation against a male. The other cases did not involve any criminal activity.

Curves and Bell pitch in with backpacks Curves in Renfrew has contributed 54 backpacks to this year’s Renfrew County Child Poverty Action Network (CPAN) backpack program. “This is another shining example of how our community is pulling together to help those children in need,� says CPAN coordinator Lyn Smith. “This is very much appreciated by all at Renfrew County Child Poverty Action Network (CPAN) and those who use the program.� Bell also added backpacks packed by Bell employees to deliver a total of 71 backpacks to Backpack Plus. Ottawa Valley Bell operations manager Christine Short said Bell Canada has participated in this program for a few years now. “Certainly this year was the most success we’ve had, thanks to our wonderful friends at Curves in Renfrew, and the support of Terri Quinlan, the new Curves owner,� says Short. “Terri challenged her members to make donations, and placed an ad in the local paper offering to waive the registration fee for new members who brought in a backpack. Twenty-one were filled by Bell employees, and Bell donated 24 backpacks to Curves which filled them. “Of the 54 that Curves filled, three were given to families in Renfrew that we knew would not ask for help, but desperately needed it,� said Short. Supplies were also given to teachers in Calabogie, Renfrew and Arnprior. “What a great day this has

been, and certainly next year, we look at surpassing this milestone,� Short adds. “Bell also helps to pick up and distribute for CPAN’s Operation Snowsuit, for which we are also very thankful,� said Smith. CPAN is still accepting dona-

tions and requests for backpacks and shoes. “We will do our very best to help all in need,� says Smith. If you need help or wish to donate time, items, or funding, please call 613-735-2374, ext 250 or ext 244.

Madawaska Valley Tour on weekend By JANET MOORE The weekend before Thanksgiving is the time for the Madawaska Valley Studio Tour. Here in our valley and highlands the stone fences that crisscross the land as well as the log buildings that can be seen along the roads, speak to the hard work and efforts of the waves of immigrants who settled this area. The rugged landscape and beauty of the seasons has inspired many generations of art makers. Traditionally, the artists and crafts people of Madawaska Valley invite the public to tour their studios on the week-end before Thanks-giving. For many exhibitors, this will be the only time their studios are open to the public this year. We will have 20 artists at 15 unique studio locations throughout the valley for you to visit on the tour. You will be welcomed into their studios Oct. 3 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. There will be demonstrations of production methods for you to enjoy and you can take your time to ask questions and browse original works inspired by our picturesque setting. Our talented artisans have a wealth of experience, creating products for your use and pleasure in many different forms. Examples of what you will see this year include one of a kind jewelry pieces, pottery, hand made soap, acrylic/oil/watercolour painting, metal work, knife making, weaving, fabric work,

Crazy and colourful Spirit Week As you all may know and realize by now, school for all grades is back. That means getting back into the infuriating routine of waking up in the morning, getting to school on time, and not falling asleep in class. It is tough to be a student. However, there are many solutions to these very familiar conundrums. One solution with which I would help you, students and parents alike, is not to miss anything. Events, including sports, meetings, assemblies or fundraisers, are things you want to know about, and I am the one to tell you about them. My name is Jessica Closs, a student at RCI, and a co-op student writing the RCI column, at The Renfrew Mercury. Obviously, I enjoy writing; anything and everything about writing. Reading is my true passion. All you would have to do is ask the people closest to me, about my love for reading, and they will tell you reading consumes much of my day, and is a part of who I am. I truly believe reading broadens the mind and opens up the heart. Reading and writing unlocks another wonderful, marvellous world where you are in control, by the turning of a page, and the glide of a pencil. This week at RCI was a very colourful week. Spirit Week went off without a quandary in sight. Crayon Monday presented an array of colours. People were seeing double on Tuesday, when Twin Day took hold and everyone looked identical. Duct Tape Wednesday was a sticky muddle. And finally Thursday, when we showed our pride for RCI, was Blue and White Day, followed by the Pigskin Parade and footballs games, for both the junior and senior teams. Now here we are again, wrapping up yet another week of the new school year at Renfrew Collegiate Institute, home of the Raiders.

NOTICE OF COMMENCEMENT ENVIRONMENTAL SCREENING PROCESS OSCEOLA WASTE DISPOSAL SITE The Township of Admaston/Bromley has initiated an Environmental Screening Process (ESP) in accordance with Ontario Regulation 101/07 made under the Environmental Assessment Act (EAA). This regulation is applied to landfill site projects proposing to add 40,000m3 or more but not more than 100,000m3 to the total waste disposal volume, being exempt from Part II of the EAA if an ESP is conducted. The ESP is intended to determine if an increase in landfilling capacity for the Osceola Waste Disposal Site is feasible, and that the subsequent technical approvals will be attainable.

Lillian Kelly and brother-in-law Simon Kelly have been with the Mount St. Patrick Supper for a combined total of about 100 years. At right, Colin Limlaw and Dennis Cybulski mash the potatoes for a crowd of 1,140 people. BMO Bank of Montreal, Renfrew Branch and the staff

Global warming is the increase in nighttime temperature Farmers needed a few more weeks of sunny warm days and no frosty nights to mature the corn and soybean crop. The grain corn crop was well behind normal development, due to a cool, sunless month of July. Corn in the county froze when the temperature dipped below freezing on Sept. 20 and 21. A large acreage won’t make grain corn. It was a surprise when travelling in northern Ontario at Temiskaming (New Liskeard–Earlton area) last week and seeing fields of corn barely touched by frost. Some were still green. Earlton is 200 kilometres above North Bay. Sunlight gets all the credit for crop production, but do you ever wonder what happens to plants at night? After a gentle warm rain and a warm night, corn plants can shoot up a few inches. Researchers are learning that night-time climatic factors, including temperature, humidity, and wind speed, can have a big impact on crop yields. That impact may explain why those yields sometimes turn out far different than what farmers expect. Suat Irmak, the assistant professor of biological systems engineering at the University of Nebraska, says plant functions shift when the sun goes down, but plants are still hard at work. An article in The Furrow magazine says Irmak and one of his students spent dozens of “all nighters” in corn and soybean fields. Their research is designed to help understand the dynamics that occur between crops and the micro-climate at night. They measure plant respiration and transpiration as well as evaporation from the soil.

night-time temperature, not how high temperatures go during the daytime. In an on-going 16-year study of rice in Asia, the researchers found that yields decline by 10 per cent for every 1.8-degree increase in the seasonal average minimum temperature. The research is now trying to extend these findings to corn and other crops. Evapotranspiration (ET) is a term describing the loss of water that moves to the air from the soil (evaporation) and as water vapor passing through the stomata of plant leaves (transpiration). Both of these factors are strongly related to crop yields and are influenced by nighttime climatic conditions, says Irmak. Irmak’s research found higher minimum temperatures cause an increase in plant respiration. This, he said, could have been a factor in the lower yields that surprised some producers and crop experts in the 2007growing season. Although the 2007 growing season in many areas of Nebraska was wet and soil moisture was not limited, crop yields didn’t reach the record levels many expected. In part, this was due to higher nighttime temperatures that occurred in 2007 compared to 2006, which was a more normal year. The article says respiration is roughly the opposite of photosynthesis – it uses the energy that is stored by photosynthesis to allow plants to live and grow. Respiration occurs primarily at night and at normal growth rates it consumes a significant amount of the energy produced by photosynthesis during the day, especially on warm nights. The article says global warming is the increase in

TO ADVERTISERS

#3445 GRACIE Gracie is a 10-month-old Lab mix who was brought to the shelter as a stray. She has a lot of energy and will demand quite a bit of attention. True to her breed she is exuberant with lots of energy, and if she doesn’t expend it, she becomes easily bored. This whirlwind is looking for an extremely active family that is looking for a companion on hikes or as a jogging partner. Gracie would benefit a great deal from obedience training, she is quite smart and eager to learn, but will need a family willing to put in the time to train her. Best suited with kids over 12 years old, she is very social but also VERY physical. Gracie is fully housebroken and crate trained. This boisterous girl is a big fan of other dogs, but is a hard player and will need a dog that can tolerate her rough and tumble attitude. Gracie is not suited in a home with cats. This sweet girl is looking for a family with lots of love to give and lots of energy to keep up with her.

KEY CLIMATIC FACTORS Relative humidity and wind speed are the key climatic factors, Irmak explains in the article. In 2007, the researchers observed less wind speed than in 2006, and the relative humidity in the 2007 growing season was eight to 10 per cent higher. Higher humidity and less wind speed reduces crop ET and can cause a reduction in crop yields. Irmak found that a surprising portion of this total ET occurred at night. While solar radiation is one of the major drivers behind evapotranspiration in the irrigated corn, soybean, and pasture sites that were studied, night-time conditions had a significant impact. The article said the researchers are finding there’s a lot going on in the crop fields at night and it’s having more impact on yields than they have previously understood. Interesting stuff ! Ever wonder why seeds come up during the night – but not in the afternoon?

Competitive horseback rider Alexa Charbonneau had been show jumping for 10 years. On Sept. 20, the St. Joseph’s High School Grade 12 student captured several honours at the finale of the JCS Stable Rising Star Series. JCS Stables is just located outside of Arnprior on Scheel Drive, and owners Julie and Chris Skarica have held horse/schooling shows there for about four years. They have a series of shows that span the spring and summer and riders accumulate points based on their performance and placing in various events.The three separate shows in the Series ran May 22, June 26 and Sept. 20. Riders earn seven points for first place, five points for second, four points for third place and three points for fourth place. Charbonneau, of Calabogie, won the Series Division in both the 2’6” jumper ring and the 2’9” jumper ring aboard Against All Odds on the final Sunday. Each division consists of three classes and the riders are judged on their equitation as well as their ability to jump their horse over the fences at various heights and in various locations around the course without knock downs. The series attracts riders from all over the Ottawa Valley as well as competitors from the Ottawa, Lanark and Carp regions. Over the course of the May, June and September Alexa Charbonneau of Calabogie and her mount Against All Odds conquer events at Series at JCS, Charbonneau was also the a jump during the JCS Stable Rising Star Series.

With winter fast approaching, is your car ready for the cold? Follow these seven steps to help your vehicle tackle the elements and to keep you safe this coming winter season.

1. Check your antifreeze mixture. Shoot for a 50/50 mix of antifreeze and water inside your radiator to prevent the mixture from freezing. Use an antifreeze tester – a simple, inexpensive tool available at your local auto-parts store – to check the mixture. If it’s off, drain and refill your cooling system. 2. Make sure you can see clearly. A blinding blizzard is not when you want your windshield wipers and wiper fluid to fail you. Wipers work well for about a year, so if it’s time, invest in some new ones. Also, don’t forget to top up your windshield-washer reservoir regularly.

3. Get a proper oil change. Cold weather can lead to thicker engine oil, which won’t

4. Inspect your battery. Did you know a vehicle’s battery power can drop up to 50 per cent in extreme cold? Make sure the battery has enough water, and its posts and connections are free of corrosion. If your battery is more than three years old, get a certified repair shop to test it.

5. Check your tire pressure. To maximize your traction on wet or snowy roads, you need properly inflated tires. But cold weather contracts the air in your tires and decreases your tire pressure. Check your owner’s manual for your correct tire pressure, then use a tire gauge to check you current levels. 6. Consider using snow tires.

They may cost extra, but experts say winter tires are worth the investment. Optimized for snowy and icy road conditions, snow tires give you better driving traction than all-season tires. Some insurance companies offer a discount if you use winter tires.

7. Check your four-wheel-drive system.

Most people don’t use 4WD until winter hits, so make sure it’s working properly. On slippery roads, 4WD will give you more traction. Make sure all drivers of the car know when and how to use it. One more way to protect you and your car this season is to make sure you’re not overpaying for car insurance.

Safety is an added benefit

Without proper protection against rust, a vehicle’s metal body can begin to corrode after just a few years. Rust usually starts in weaker areas such as spot welds (newer vehicles have as many as 2,000 of these places where metal parts are welded together). If left unchecked, rust can also harm the mechanical parts that are essential to the safe running of the vehicle, such as the gas tank, electrical connections and brake lines.

Bandito Features: on-command push-button 2WD/4WD, alloy wheels, winch.

“As soon as your car starts getting rusty, the overall integrity of the vehicle is compromised,” explains Freeman Young, president of Krown Rust Control System. “Treating your vehicle with a rust-control product every year actually makes the frame stronger and protects the moving parts. The fact is that rustproofing equals safety.”

Pistol Features: 12” alloy wheels, low-profile low-profi le tires, LED lights, disk brakes, mileage of up to 45 km/h.

Another advantage of rust control is that you’ll save money in the long run. You’ll have lower maintenance and repair costs because moving parts such as door locks and “window winders,” along with dozens of other components, will be protected and last longer. And a rustproofed vehicle has a higher resale or trade-in value.

“You wouldn’t think of not changing your vehicle’s oil to maintain the motor,” says Young, “and an annual rust-control treatment protects a car’s body and moving parts in the same way. Think of it as preventive maintenance for your aging car.” More information on the benefits of rust control is available at www.krown.com.

How bad-driving penalties affect your rate

Consumer secrets to buying car insurance for less

You may have heard of this recent happening: a driver in Kitchener, Ont. is facing seven charges in a stunt-driving investigation. Doing 145 kilometres/hour in a 90 km/h zone, the driver, in a sedan, is facing charges that include stunt driving (driving at a rate of more than 50 km/h above the posted limit), speeding in a 90 km/h zone, driving with a blood alcohol concentration level over zero (he was a Class G2 licence holder), producing false evidence and knowingly having false insurance... With his licence suspended for 90 days and his car impounded for seven days, the court hassles, charges and impact on his record are just the start — there’s the fact that this 20-year-old driver will now face severe repercussions when it comes to obtaining future auto-insurance coverage. So what’s the lesson here? Breaking the law while on the road means more than just getting fined and having your licence revoked — it means immediate consequences, insurance-wise.

Car insurance costs a lot of money for something you may never end up needing. Every single car owner needs insurance, but not every owner can afford expensive insurance rates. After reading this article, you will no longer feel “helpless” when it comes to controlling your hard-earned money. There is a good chance you could immediately save hundreds, even thousands, of dollars on your car insurance.

HERE ARE SIX SECRETS THAT WILL GET YOU THE INSURANCE PROTECTION YOU NEED, WHILE ALSO PROTECTING YOUR WALLET: Secret #1: Driving less saves you money. Some insurance companies offer discounted rates to customers who drive less. Installed in the glove box, or under the dash, is a technological device that tracks when, where and how fast you drive. If the data proves that you are a low-risk driver, you could get a discount from an insurer that offers usage-based insurance.

Here are illegal driving actions that come with the added repercussion of automatically affecting your auto- insurance rate: • driving without a licence • driving without insurance • driving while impaired (this includes drugs and alcohol) • racing or stunt driving • failing to remain at the scene of an accident • failing to stop for a school bus • driving with a suspended licence

Secret #2: Waive your first at-fault accident If you’ve been accident free in recent history, contact your broker and ask if you qualify for the accident protection coverage. Here’s how it works. If you get into a minor at-fault accident while driving, your insurance company will waive your first at-fault accident if you qualified and purchased the accident protection endorsement. You will save hundreds of dollars on your car-insurance rate upon renewal.

To ensure you pay the lowest possible premium, always heed the rules of the road. Remember that even if a minor action only costs you a small fine and no immediate change in your current rate, you may still face higher premiums when changing insurance companies or renewing your policy. Events like this change your driving profile, which insurance companies use to determine your rate. This is why you should always shop around for the lowest rate available.

Secret #3: Car-insurance companies reward good drivers. Car-insurance companies value good drivers. Most auto insurers will reward young drivers or people over the age of 55 if they complete professional or defensive-driving courses by offering up to a 15 per cent discount off their rate.

Secret #4: Ask your employer about company car insurance perks. Your employer may have exclusive discount rates with your own car- insurance company that could save you up to 30 per cent on your annual insurance rate. Affiliations with professional organizations may also qualify you for lower auto-insurance rates.

Secret #5: Have you ever rented a car? It counts as insurance experience! Most insurance companies attempt to validate high premium rates if you’ve never held an insurance policy in your name. They consider you as having “no prior insurance experience.” Renting a vehicle from a rental-car company for more than one day, and purchasing liability insurance, will qualify you as having insurance experience. Simply provide proof of insurance to your broker. Your wallet will thank you later.

Secret #6: Some insurance companies offer free quote searches. Auto-insurance quotes between companies can vary by hundreds, even thousands, of dollars. Saving money is on everyone’s mind. The only way to ensure that you find the companies that offer the best price is to do an online rate search. For instance, InsuranceHotline.com offers free rate searches for consumers and directs you to the company that has the lowest rate for you and your family.

Nine winter driving tips How prepared are you to get behind the wheel this winter? Check out these nine tips on playing it safe and smart on the road this season.

1. Drive free and clear. Before heading out, clean snow and ice off your whole car to maximize your visibility. Make sure to clear your headlamps, taillights, turn signals and sideview mirrors. 2. Check your gas tank. Extreme weather may get you stuck in traffic, or require you to change routes or turn back, so you should always have at least half a tank of gas. 3. Wear your seatbelt. It sounds obvious, but in many car accidents, people are found to be not wearing them. Make sure you and all of your passengers are protected. Also, if you or your passengers aged 16 and under are found not wearing a seatbelt, you could receive a moving violation and your insurance rates could increase. 4. Leave early. In winter, it often takes longer to get places. Check local weather and road conditions before leaving, and give yourself enough time to reach your destination. 5. Slow down. Snowy weather affects visibility, and icy roads make it harder to control your car. Ease up on the gas pedal and take more care while driving. Keep a safe distance between your vehicle and the one ahead. 6. Wear shades when needed. If it’s snowy outside and the sun’s really bright, wear sunglasses to protect your eyes and prevent eye fatigue. 7. Carry a cellphone. If your car stalls and you get stranded, your cellphone could save your life. But try using it only in an emergency – talking on the phone while driving is already illegal in several provinces and there is currently similar pending legislation in Ontario.

8. Play it safe. Avoid driving in freezing rain. If you do, you’ll find your car slipping and sliding on black ice, which can be dangerous. Same goes for blizzards: no matter how good a driver you are, it’s not worth the risk.

9. If your car stalls … Unless you know exactly how close you are to help, stay with your vehicle. Try to conserve fuel and stay warm. Keep one window slightly open to let in fresh air. Watch out for exhaust or carbon monoxide problems. If you can, access the supplies in your car’s emergency kit. If you have a phone, call for help. Turn on your four-way flashers. Following these tips should help keep you safe this winter, but they won’t keep you safe from high insurance rates. For that, you’ll need to visit InsuranceHotline.com to get a free quote, and to compare rates from more than 30 insurance companies to ensure you’re paying the lowest rate possible.

By Kelly Williams The current state of the economy has Canadian consumers thinking twice about that newcar smell. In fact, a recent survey revealed that under current economic conditions, almost half of us would buy a used car instead of a new one. Getting a great deal on a used vehicle can be as simple as 1-2-3, but you’ll need to do your homework before you buy.

buyers who choose environmentally friendly vehicles. Finally, complete the transaction in person. Don’t send money by mail or other electronic services. More information and a listing of pre-owned vehicles in your neighbourhood, can be found online at www.kijiji.ca where you can click on “cars and vehicles.

Kelly Williams is a respected educator and leader in the automotive industry and a former racecar driver. When Williams isn’t track-side, she is busy acting as a spokesperson for Be Car Care Aware, teaching Canadians how to take care of their cars. Williams has also appeared on several well-known TV shows. She is Kijiji Canada’s resident car-care expert

Step 1: Regardless of where you live, finding the best deals on pre-owned vehicles should start with online research. Many individual sellers, as well as dealerships offering used vehicles, will list their cars for sale on a classifieds website. Look for a website that has a large number of listings and offers local information. For example, Kijiji.ca, Canada’s most popular autos classified site, boasts more than 280,000 listings at any given time. The site also offers local listings for 67 cities across the country, so it’s easy to find a car in your own neighbourhood.

-News Canada

Step 2: Learn about the vehicle by doing your research both offline and online. Call the seller and arrange to meet for a full inspection. Make sure to inspect the vehicle in daylight and take it for a test drive. It’s also a good idea to book an inspection with a licensed technician, who will be able to tell you a lot about the car. You will also want to learn about the vehicle and its history. Check out online resources such as Transport Canada’s vehicle recalls database, crash ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and Carfax or CarProof, which can uncover historical details using a Vehicle Information Number (VIN). If you’re buying green, it’s also a good idea to visit Natural Resources Canada’s comprehensive list of vehicles ranked by fuel efficiency.

Step 3: Once you’ve settled on the right car, it’s time for the paperwork. Look for vehicle ownership transfer information on your provincial government’s website. Make sure you follow the appropriate steps to transfer the ownership and double-check to see if you qualify for any government fuel-efficiency incentives. Many provincial governments give back to

The Stittsville Royals provide the opposition at 8 p.m. Ted Barron, Broker of Record 646-2374 email: barrote@nrtco.net

On Saturday, the Wolves take on their newest Valley Division rival, the Almonte Thunder at 8 p.m. THUNDER’S FIRST HOME GAME It’s Almonte’s first home game since they took over the slot in the Valley Division vacated by the Carleton Place Legion Kings. They are now the Carleton Place Canadians in the Central Junior A Hockey League. Gayle Jacques,

Zumba for Kids hits Renfrew The Renfrew Parks and Recreation Department has some new opportunities for kids, starting soon. It is Zumba for Kids. Kids love to crank up the music, shake, wiggle and have a blast with their friends. So why not get fit while they’re at it? It is designed for ages 4-12. ZumbAtomic blurs the lines between fitness and entertainment with its many characters that were designed to be role models and its original music specifically for kids. Young dances are given the opportunity to get into fabulous, kid active shape through repetition, great music, cool lyrics and fun. The routine also goes outside of just Latin tunes. ZumbAtomic incorporates hip-hop and other forms of music. Kids can check out a video.

Sports Quyon Combat Flyers take ISC II Challenge Cup SHERRY HAAIMA shaaima@msn.com It was a perfect weekend for softball, say organizers of the ISC II Challenge Cup, played Sept. 18, 19 and 20 at the McNab ball diamonds. Great weather helped bring some decent crowds out to enjoy some exciting ball games. Local men’s softball players Team Easton and Carp I4C Victory were two of the seven teams vying for the championship. The Quyon Combat Flyers were the eventual

winners of the tournament. Carp I4C Victory finished third in the tournament, making it to the Sunday morning semifinals where they lost to the North Fred Kings 3-1. Team Easton played an exciting Saturday night game against Carp with I4C Victory picking up the 5-4 win and knocking Easton out. Quyon’s win earns them a paid entry to the 2010 ISC II Tournament of Champions in Midland, Mich., next August.

Calabogie Ladies Invitation makes record donation STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com The annual Calabogie Ladies Golf Invitational has generated a record $2,400 for the Bernadette McCann House for Women. The money will provide $2,400 in food vouchers for distribution by the Pembroke-based home, which provides safety and security for abused women and their children. ORGANIZERS PLEASED The record donation from the tournament, which attracted 120 female golfers to the Calabogie Highlands Golf Club in August, would not have been possible without sponsorship and door prizes from area businesses, says tourney co-chair Sharon Bonnar. “We’re grateful for that generosity, given this is a year of economic hardship,” says Gwen Rutland, public education and volunteers services coordinator for Bernadette McCann House. It’s the eighth straight year Bernadette McCann House as been the event’s designated benefactor, and organizers plan to support the same cause next year. The tournament is also a fun event, with a different theme each year. The 2009 theme was Paris, which resulted in two golf-

OUTREACH SERVICES This year is also the 30th anniversary of Bernadette McCann House, whose outreach program provided services to a record 415 women in 2008-09. “They have been increasing every year, but we are the only shelter for abused women in the county,” says Rutland. In 2008-09, the organization also fielded 2,465 crisis calls and provided transitional support for 102 women needing a new residence, away from the source of their abuse. Also, Renfrew is about to become the host of the second Living Without Violence program. The pilot project took place last year in Eganville, where six abusive men volunteered for an eight-week educational program facilitated by Bernadette McCann House. It’s hard, but important, for men to volunteer for such programs, says Rutland. “Abuse is a learned problem, so it can be unlearned.” Another forthcoming project of Bernadette McCann House is November’s It’s Time to Talk conference in Pembroke.

Give the Gift of Life Kidney Walk a first for Renfrew JOHN CARTER john.carter@metroland.com A dozen walkers participated in the first Renfrew Kidney Foundation Give the Gift of Life Walk Sept. 20. Organizer Nadine La Salle of Renfrew said the participants at Ma-Te-Way Park were walking for all of the 120-plus dialysis patients in Renfrew, Pembroke and Barry’s Bay. There were walks held across Ontario, including ones in Pembroke and Ottawa. RAISE AWARENESS La Salle, a social worker, said she became interested in the cause in the last year when she assisted dialysis patients at Renfrew Victoria Hospital. She said the walks raise awareness of the growing problem of kidney disease. They also raise money for to kidney disease research and assistance for dialysis patients, such as travel funds, she explained. Petawawa residents Jennifer and Chris Rose participated in the Renfrew walk in memory of Jennifer’s father, Ross Toffelmire, a former Quail Creek resident, who died of kidney failure about 10 years ago. His brother, Bruce of Wilber Lake (near Eganville), also participated in the walk in memory of his brother. For more information about the Kidney Foundation of Canada, see the website www.kidney.on.ca.

ANDY SKLEPOWICZ Renfrew Curling Rink So, if I get into curling, what options do I have available this season at the Renfrew Curling Rink? Basically, the day is divided in two: day curling includes morning (9 or 9:30) or afternoon (1 or 1:30 start) and evening curling (7 or 9 p.m.). Day curling is available for both men and women. Men’s curling is on Mondays and Fridays, morning and afternoon and is ably administered by draw master Rob Warren. Tuesday afternoon is for ladies and is looked after by Pat Lee. A new league of stick curling may be available on Tuesday mornings if there is enough interest. If you are interested in joining this league, please give her a call at 613-432-7701. Thursday afternoons are for mixed curling convened by Jane Hunter. Wednesdays are set aside for interclub competitions, such as the Lowe Cup, Autumn Leaves and the Friendlies. Often and especially on special occasions, the bar is open, lunches are served, and there is afternoon tea. Evening curling offers five different programs, Monday to Friday. Monday night is for set team curling where a full team of four curlers is entered and usually plays together for the year. More players can be part of the team, but only four are allowed to play in any game. If anyone is interested in this league but does not have a team, the draw master, Gert Brydges, will help put a team together and match people up. Tuesday night is used by Community Living and taken care of by Shelley Jamieson and her ever-needed volunteers. If you can spare some time to help out, please call Shelley at 613-432-2870. Wednesday is Skins Curling, in which the scoring system is quite different from regular curling and uses an increasing scale of points per end, with carryovers, similar to golf. It is convened by your columnist. Thursday has fun mixed curling open to all curlers and looked after by Diane Burns. Friday has more open mixed curling with a league that is known for its end-of-the-workingweek’s good fun. It is especially enjoyed by our new and beginning curlers who are carefully matched up with and taken care of by more experienced and very patient curlers. This evening is co-ordinated by the able leadership of Dwight and Helen Hayward. All evening curling, except Monday, consists of teams that are changed every draw (usually five or six weeks). This gives people the opportunity to meet and interact with different players each draw. The evening curling provides good curling and is followed by fellowship and fun in our upstairs fully licensed lounge area. Junior and Little Rock curling will most likely be offered on Thursdays but this will be confirmed once a convener is in place. Remember, a full membership allows you to participate in any or all of the above. There are discounted memberships for those that only wish to curl for half the season, or on a specific day or evening. So don’t miss out on the fun again this year. Call the club at 613-432-5001 or Cliff Valleau at 613-433-3427. If you need specific information on any of the events or if you have any questions, contact Barb Westgarth at 613-432-4267 or Andy Sklepowicz at 613-432-6725.

Who can Benefit from Preventative Orthotic Maintenance? Do you experience knee, back, hip, leg or foot pain? Are you fed up with plantar fasciitis (heel pain)? Do you suffer from shin splints, bunions, corns or hammer toes? Do you partake in any activities that require you to be on your feet? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then Orthotics may be your solutions. Who Can Benefit From Orthotics? Preventative Orthotic maintenance is beneficial for everyone. In fact, 67% of Canadians suffer from foot problems and do not even know it. Furthermore, approximately 30% of the population wears the wrong size or type of shoes for their feet. Proper footwear can improve your balance and alignment, as well as prevent injuries. What are Orthotics? An Orthotic is a foot supporting device that is custom made to specifically fit your foot. A custom made Orthotic will realign the relationship between the front and rear of the foot, and between the foot and the leg. This will help to treat and prevent disorders of the foot, ankle, knee and back. The goal is to restore optimal arch height and function, since it is loss of arch height that is the most common factor that is the most common factor

behind foot pain and deformity. The Orthotic is made to match the exact shape of your foot, with the rigidity calibrated to be able to hold the arch up with activity, and yet flex slightly for comfort and function. How will Orthotics Help? Orthotics allows the muscles, tendons and bones of the feet to function at their highest potential. They provide full contact cushioning for the foot which reduces symptoms associated with many foot related problems. Orthotics offer support and stabilization of the foot and can prevent, correct or accommodate foot deformities. Monday, October 5th from 9:30am to 5pm – circle this date and time on your calendar. Should you wish to drop by with questions or want to see or have a mould done. The Healthstart team will be available at the offices of Alternative Health Care Clinic 268 Raglan St., Renfrew. Call 613-432-0997 to reserve a time. The Healthstart team will be available to complete individual orthotic assessments. Assessments take approximately 15 minutes per individual, including the foot impression. Covered under most Group Benefit Plans

Sports ON THE ROAD TO THE END ZONE Cameron Shields (21) of the Renfrew Collegiate Raiders has his sights set on the end zone Friday afternoon at Lindsay Athletic Field at Ma-Te-Way Park. Shields reached paydirt twice, as did Jason Fleury in RCI’s 31-7 victory over Deep River’s Mackenzie Mustangs in Lanark-Renfrew High School Football League action. The win allowed RCI to sweep its 2009 season home-opening doubleheader. Gordon Gaddess had all three major scores for the Junior Raiders, who defeated the Notre Dame Celtic Warriors of Carleton Place 20-7. Both RCI football teams are in Perth today to meet the St. John’s Spartans. The Raiders’ next home games are on Sunday, Oct. 11 when the two Renfrew teams host the Arnprior Redmen in the annual Turkey Bowl games.

IN MEMORIAM

His weary hours and days of pain, His troubled nights are past. And in our aching hearts we know, He has found sweet rest at last. May the winds of love blow softly, And whisper so you hear. We will always love and miss you, And wish that you were here. Mom, Dad and family

A booklet of commemorative verses is available at this newspaper. We sincerely hope it will prove to be of service to readers who are desirous of selecting a suitable verse for their In Memoriam.

Ray Dubois Sept. 30, 1926 - September 26, 2003

I cried when I lost my best friend... It seems like just yesterday, An Angel came down and touched him... And took him far away He was a husband, a father, a brother, A neighbour, an uncle and friend, He was all of this and much, much more Right up ‘til the very end. As a husband, I saw something beautiful... How he adored and treasured his wife. She was his strength, his pride and purpose... His love...his partner in life. You always knew where you stood with him... Things were black and white...not gray. When he gave his word, you could bank on it... There was no other way. He taught us how to lend a hand... From his example we were quick to learn... To do it all so willingly. And expect nothing in return. He treasured the friends and people That he had met and were so kind Their memories held a special place In his heart and in his mind.

KELLY, Michael John In loving memory of a Dear Brother Michael who was accidentally killed in the bush on October 2, 2003

He was a little stubborn... Or “bull-headed” some might say. But, you couldn’t hold that against him... Because it is the “Dubois” way. Yes, I cried when I lost my best friend... I think of him every day. Because he was far more than my best friend... He was my Uncle...my Uncle Ray! Ken & Flo Lalonde CL16877

Come to my Heavenly garden, And see in perfect bloom The flower you loved so dearly And thought I plucked too soon. Then you will know My reasons, Though you know it not today, Why in his promising manhood I took your brother away.

JACQUES, Joseph (Sonny) In loving memory of a dear brother, Uncle and God Father who passed away September 30, 2006/ When family ties are broken and loved ones have to part, It leaves a wound that never heals, and an aching in our Forever loved by your sister, heart. Your presence we Donna miss, Your memory we treasure; Loving you always, Forgetting you never. Love Rose, Brenda, Tara, Kelly, Martin, Hailey and Lucas

Many memories have been left behind that bring smiles to the faces of everyone he knew. That is what keeps him alive within us all today.

Nine years have swiftly passed away, But still, I don’t forget, For in the heart that loved you best, Your memory lingers yet. To me, you were so special Dad, What more is there to say, Except I wish with all my heart, That you were here today.

IN MEMORIAM

Raoul (Ray) Lafrance

Howard Cooney In his 89th year, passed away peacefully on September 22, 2009 at Northumberland Hills Hospital (Cobourg) after a valiant two-year battle with blood cancer. Howard was a kind and reserved ‘gentle’man – obsessed with never wanting to bother others, but always prepared to help those he could. Beloved husband to the late Doris (Godin), brother-in-law to the late Florence and Ernie Godin. He loved his family dearly and will be greatly missed as a father by Brian (Pembroke), Neil/Linda (Aurora) and Lea/Tony Dwyer (Newcastle); grandfather to Andrea, Paul/ Sara-Jean and Scott Cooney; Cara and Laura Lea Dwyer; and great grandpa to Ava Cooney. Howard lived a full life and was an accomplished, decent man. Born in Brandon, Manitoba on July 30, 1921. He was a WWII Veteran, rising 8 ranks to Flying Officer in the Canadian Air Force as a wireless operator/air gunner. Howard enjoyed a 35-year career as a professional radio announcer (mostly in Toronto). In the late 1950’s/early 1960’s, while at CKEY, Howard’s daily morning newscasts held the largest listening audience in Canada. Over his career he worked at various other radio stations including CFTR and CKFH, and for many years was the ‘Voice’ of the Toronto Real Estate Board and Yorkdale Shopping Centre. Howard retired to lovely Cobourg in 1981 and as an original resident of Legion Village in 1982 stayed active for many years volunteering and golfing. In 1998, Howard received the prestigious recognition of being named Cobourg’s Senior Citizen Of the Year for his ‘long and outstanding contributions to the community.’ He had a passion for volunteer driving. POP – you did it ‘your way’ – all the way! You will be missed. A special thanks from Howard and family to all the staff at Northumberland Hills Hospital – particularly in the Chemo Ward. Nurses Whitney, Kim and Bridget and Dr. Beck – you cared and encouraged Howard so wonderfully every week. You made such a difference and brought quality to Howard’s final two years. Thank you. Consistent with Howard’s personal wishes and rather unassuming approach to life and ceremony, a private family gathering will be held with interment at St. Francis Xavier Cemetery in Renfrew, Ontario. Messages of condolence can be sent to his family by www.MacCoubrey.com. Memorial donations are welcomed to the Northumberland Hills Hospital Chemo Clinic.
