The price of being rural Municipal project overruns create financial havoc

2,713 and 1,345 households. “Approximately one-third of our land base is designated intensive agriculture land Class 1, 2 and 3 under the Land Inventory Act, therefore is a treasured food production area,” she said. The township’s total budget levy for 2009 is $864,500. “Our over-run for both projects will be approximately $183,000 minimum, above and beyond the matching funds,” she explained. Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MPP John Yakabuski has meanwhile backed Admaston-Bromley’s efforts to preserve provincial mitigation funding. “This situation is not acceptable. It will leave municipalities bankrupt,” Yakabuski said of cuts to mitigation funding. “This funding provides much-needed support to the County of Renfrew, and municipalities all across the province, in their administration of important provincial social programs through the Ontario Municipal Partnership Fund (OMPF),” said an Oct. 22 news release from MPP Yakabuski’s office. He called upon the province to postpone change “until a fair and equitable arrangement can be made with municipalities and not leave them hanging by a thread.” If the cut is imposed Admaston-Bromley will lose $268,000 from a total tax levy of $864,000.

LUCY HASS lucy.hass@metroland.com The footprint for Admaston-Bromley’s municipal building expansion and retrofit is clear. The hole in the ground speaks for itself. But how the project can be completed without crippling municipal finances, given a pending cost over-run, is muddy. At council’s last regular meeting, Admaston-Bromley Mayor Raye-Anne Briscoe noted the tremendous challenge the township faces in meeting its one-third share of the overrun. The township faces a similar challenge with street reconstruction in Douglas. In an Oct. 16 letter to minister of agriculture, food and rural affairs Leona Dombowsky, as well as federal transport minister John Baird, Briscoe described the township as grateful and very fortunate to receive money from both the Building Canada Fund and the Infrastructure Stimulus Fund. The catch, however, is that both projects have exceeded budget estimates. And while provincial and federal pockets are deeper, the small rural municipality has limited access to tax revenue. “We are asking if consideration can be given to additional funding assistance,” said Briscoe in her letter. Admaston-Bromley has a population of

Ways to avoid part of HST for funeral services STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com Ontario residents will pay more taxes when the harmonized sales tax goes into effect next summer. But there will be a few ways to get around paying the dreaded HST. As of July 2010, Ontario residents will pay a combined harmonized sales tax of 13 per cent − a combination of eight per cent provincial sales tax (PST) and five per cent goods and service tax (GST). The worst news is many services, once charged only PST or GST, will now be subject to both. Funeral services are included in that category, and staff at funeral homes are bracing for the negative reaction. Lobbying is unlikely to

change the government’s mind on the HST, but this month the Ontario Liberal government decided to grandfather in the lower taxation rates for funeral services paid before July 1, 2010. Consequently, funeral service staff, such as funeral director Natasha Goulet of Goulet Funeral Home in Renfrew, are advising clients and potential clients to pay in advance. Many Ontario residents already do. About one in four Ontario funerals are prepaid, with more than $1.38 billion sitting in trust to cover the eventual cost of services, reported the Toronto Star last week. In 2008 there were 224,257 prepaid funeral contracts

in Ontario. Goulet says a number of their clients have paid for funeral services several years in advance, allowing the payment to gather interest in trust and help pay for inflationary increases. Some of their clients who are still alive, did prepayment, even before the news of HST, back in the 1980s, says Goulet. In an informal Goulet Funeral Home survey of about 50 families, only two families knew anything about how the HST will increase funeral costs. The hike is substantial. If a funeral costs $8,000, current taxes of $400 would jump to $1,040 by July 2010.

Turn back clocks, check smoke detectors Renfrew fire chief Guy Longtin suggests that as people go about the house changing their clocks, they also change batteries in smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors. “Change your clock, change your battery,” he said. Longtin said for those who didn’t check their detectors’ batteries earlier this month during fire prevention week, the clock change is a easy-to-remember

time to put in new batteries. Seniors or anyone having trouble switching their batteries can call the fire department to come out and do it for them, he added. If your detectors are livewired, they still should be tested monthly regularly and batteries changed at least once a year if they have a battery back-up.

Factoring in the facts about vaccines Our nation seems to be gripped by a choice that could lay the groundwork for how a flu pandemic affects our population. To vaccinate or not to vaccinate? Concerns about immunizations are nothing new. Concerned theorists have long claimed that vaccines can lead to anything from autism to Alzheimer’s Disease, theories that have been debunked or seriously questioned by the scientific community. The latest vaccine scare comes courtesy of a compound added to the H1N1 flu shot to bolster the effectiveness of the vaccine. Since vaccines only contain part of the flu virus, they often cannot stimulate a full immune response (especially in those with weak immune systems), so an adjuvant is added to stimulate that immune response. The H1N1 vaccine, called Arepanrix, contains an adjuvant called AS03, which consists of squalene (shark liver oil). Here is where the controversy comes in. Some people claim that squalene, which was also used in the anthrax vaccine, was to blame for Gulf War syndrome. The evidence of this is weak,

according to the scientific community. For a detailed article about vaccines and adjuvants, pick up the October issue of Scientific American. There are also concerns about the amount of mercury in each dose of the virus. A small amount – 25 micrograms – of mercury is added to the vials to avoid contamination, since each vial contains multiple doses of vaccine. That amount is slightly less than what you would ingest in a tuna sandwich. Another detail sure to fan the flames of debate is the news that the H1N1 vaccine was not tested in any Canadian studies before its approval, according to the Ottawa Citizen. Instead, the government relied on a Belgian study of 130 healthy adults ages 18 to 60 who were injected with the same version and brand of the vaccine that will be used in Canada. It’s the first time the adjuvant has been used in a flu vaccine in Canada, but Health Canada spokespeople said the squalene adjuvant has been tested in approximately 45,000 people around the world and has been evaluated by Canada and other regulatory authorities as part of the pre-pandemic review for a vaccine for the avian flu (H5N1).

On the heels of this news comes a survey that suggests 38 per cent of Canadians say they are not at all likely or not very likely to get the vaccination. That figure sent health officials into a frenzy to reduce confusion and make the case for people to get vaccinated. “There is a very real risk of the flu,” said Canada’s chief public health officer, Dr. David Butler Jones, during a press conference last week. “Even in its mildest form, it’s miserable and, at its worst, it kills or puts into ICUs and on ventilator support perfectly healthy young people. The choice is simple: a safe and effective preventative vaccine or a very real risk of disease. “If we get the real facts out about the vaccine, you will almost certainly choose immunization.” Still, that is a choice that everyone will have to make for themselves, and it is everyone’s responsibility to ensure they are informed about the risks and benefits of the vaccine – and the risks of the H1N1 flu. You are encouraged to talk to your health-care provider for the facts, call Telehealth at 1-866-797-0000, or contact the Renfrew County and District Health Unit.

Nature

A family of varnished shelves

Brian Eady sent me images of bracket fungi with the distinctive appearance of being varnished. In some texts they are called Lacquered Polypore (many openings). Others call them Varnished Polypore. In China and Japan they are called Ling Chih and used for medical purposes. The Latin name for it is Gadoderma lucidum. The particular species that Brian saw and photographed is called Hemlock Varnished Shelf. The bracket is soft, corky, flat, divided into wedges, shiny with a varnished reddish cap. The underside is white and in some specimens the edges are white as well. The cap may be from 2 to 12 inches (5 to 30 cm) wide, kidney or fan-shaped and from shiny reddish orange, to brownish red to black. The varnished appearance is caused by the stain from elected spores. The spores, which grow into new plants, are resistant to heat, cold, drought and other adverse conditions. These fungi remain in a resting state until the environment is favourable for development or germination. The brackets of some species of the family are highly decorative. These specimens can be removed from the tree and dried to make decorative wall shelves. Other species grow for many years on living hosts, reaching impressive dimensions, 20 to 30 inches (50-75 cm). Growth of the Hemlock Varnish Shelf is from May to November and they may overwinter in their shelf form but they usually disintegrate in late fall. They range from southern Ontario east to the Maritimes and south to the midwestern United States. The Hemlock Varnish Shelf is most often found in coniferous wood, especially hemlock spruce and pine.

Denying the future

OLE HENDRICKSON If you care about your well-being, the fate of your children and the environment, please read James Hoggan’s new book, Climate Cover-Up. Hoggan owns a successful Vancouver public relations company. He chairs the board of directors of the David Suzuki Foundation and is a trustee of the Dalai Lama Centre for Peace and Education. He founded a website “DeSmogBlog” to, in his words, identify unethical public relations tactics and expose the public relations people who are trying to confuse the public about climate change. At a recent University of Ottawa talk, Hoggan noted that public relations experts know far more about how you think than you do. He documents all the tricks they, and other climate change deniers, use to induce you to deny the reality of climate change. The basic strategy of the deniers is to create doubt about the scientific facts. Some falsely pose as climate scientists, misrepresenting their research and teaching backgrounds. They speak about areas outside their fields of expertise. They accept money from oil and coal companies. They sow doubt, mistrust, confusion, and delay. These false climate scientists are backed up by an army of public relations specialists and corporate lobbyists, representing companies whose profits are tied to

Look for them this fall should you be out hiking or hunting. BOXELDER BUGS RETURN Bill McLaughlin noticed a few Boxelder bugs on the siding of his home in Renfrew. So far they have not been the nuisance bugs they have been in the past few years. The bugs are often called “Maple bugs” because they feed on the seeds of Manitoba Maple trees. In other parts of the continent the trees are called boxelder, thus the name. The bugs are black with red markings on the outer edge of the wings, have a red abdomen and are about a half inch (1 cm) long. The young are bright red and remain immobile until they get their wings. GIANT WATER BUG The Giant Water Bug is our largest aquatic insect and a very intimidating looking creature. The body is about two inches (50 mm) long and the legs add another

fossil fuels. Hoggan says there are four climate change lobbyists for every elected official in Washington, D.C. I thought that after the Nobel Prize was awarded to the thousands of scientists who write the reports of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, climate change deniers would slink away with their tails between their legs. I was wrong. The deniers are more active, and better funded, than ever. Why do so many of us continue to deny climate change, when the scientific evidence is so strong, and the risks are so high? Some answers are simple. We don’t want to change our lifestyle. Retooling to a zero-carbon society would disrupt powerful and profitable industry sectors and require significant government intervention in the economy. If apparently credible spokespersons tell us there is scientific doubt about the reality of climate change, we are only too happy to believe them. Deniers aim their propaganda at smaller media outlets where reporters lack the resources to check their facts, sources, and credentials. They take advantage of the fact that climate change is complex. We agreed to ban ozone-destroying substances because it’s easy to understand the dangers of a hole in the ozone layer that lets in harmful radiation. But how can scientists communicate the dangers of climate change? I’m a professional ecologist. I’ve published peer-reviewed scientific articles on the carbon cycle.

These mobile bugs are capable of bat-like flight and are attracted to outside lights at night. Although not fast fliers, they are able to catch flying insects in flight. The large front legs are used to grasp prey and hold it while the juices are sucked from the luckless victim. They propel themselves through the water with two pairs of powerful swimming legs. Their large front legs will give you a bite that hurts but they do not go out of their way to bite people. Speaking of Nature.

Part of my work involves reading studies of how climate change is impacting life on the land and in the seas. Every peer-reviewed scientific study on climate change published in the past decade has confirmed that human-caused greenhouse gas emissions are warming and destabilizing our fragile atmosphere, and causing significant damage to living systems. The world is headed, faster and faster, for climate disaster. If we fail to act to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, hundreds of millions of people will abandon the world’s coastal areas during this century, never to return. Even worse scenarios involving total melting of the icecaps and stoppage of ocean currents are possible. These could leave oceans devoid of oxygen, covered with purple bacteria, filling the atmosphere with poisonous green clouds of hydrogen sulphide. Earth has experienced such episodes, but not for hundreds of millions of years. Most species would perish – certainly all humans. Avoiding these catastrophic scenarios will require strong measures and leadership. Consider a global ban on fossil fuels. Could people live happily in a zero-carbon society? Absolutely. As caretakers of the planet, and each other, we would lead full and meaningful lives. If we lead, politicians will follow.

Admaston-Bromley

Council endorses ‘smart moratorium’ LUCY HASS lucy.hass@metroland.com Admaston-Bromley council has passed a motion supporting “a smart moratorium on school closings.” The township has three schools within its boundaries: Admaston Public, St. Michael’s Catholic School in Douglas and Opeongo High School. The Community Schools Alliance was formed earlier this year, by municipal leaders across the province, to press the Ontario government to implement a smart moratorium on disputed school closings. The goal of the moratorium is to provide time for the ministry, school boards and municipalities to work together to develop policies to prevent further school closings without input from students, parents, the communi-

ty and municipalities. The key issues at stake: declining enrolment, a mutually-agreed-upon Accommodation Review Committee process, a review of funding to rural and small community schools, and transparency and accountability between municipalities and school boards. “The smart moratorium is vital to our municipality, as we have two elementary schools and a public secondary school in our township with excellent co-operative agreements between the schools and the municipality,” the Admaston-Bromley resolution said. It went further: “Our township is an agriculture-based municipality of which we are very proud, but must therefore depend on other means such as these schools are a motivation to

bring growth to our community.” The resolution was moved by Coun. Dirk Rook and seconded by Coun. Sandra Crozier. Mayor Raye-Anne Briscoe said it’s really important … “by any and all means, to impress upon (education) minister (Elizabeth) Wynn the need to consult broadly because there is valuable input that must be had from all parties involved.” She said ministries often work in silos and must be made aware of the “cause and effect” of decisions. Briscoe said she was pleased with efforts to customize the AdmastonBromley resolution to reflect the township. “I’m absolutely very satisfied with the effort we’re putting forth here,” she said.

Heritage Radio seeks talk show host LUCY HASS lucy.hass@metroland.com Valley Heritage Radio is seeking a volunteer to host a Saturday morning community talk show on the small rural station. In a Sept. 28 letter to Admaston-Bromley council, station president Earl Pearce said the small community radio station was surprised to receive, “out of the blue,” a Renfrew County resolution suggesting the morning talk show had been cancelled. “It (a community talk show) is a very valuable resource for residents of the Ottawa Valley to understand the issues affecting them and their local politicians,” he said. But he corrected a statement in the county’s Sept. 30 resolution that Heritage Radio cancelled the program, which was hosted by Jake Davies. “The volunteer host of this show felt it was too time-con-

suming to do the show as a volunteer,” Pearce explained. “We are continuing to look for a replacement volunteer for this show, as we agree it is a valuable community service,” he added. Pearce said Valley Heritage Radio relies extensively on people, businesses and municipalities in its listening area and their support through annual membership. In closing, he invited Admaston-Bromley to join as a member. “Knowing the importance you place on this community station, we would certainly appreciate your financial support by becoming a valuable member of this station,” Pearce wrote. The county resolution, under Warden Don Rathwell’s signature, said the program is an extremely valuable resource for municipalities to discuss relevant issues with their ratepayers.

GM to haul household garbage east JOHN CARTER john.carter@metroland.com Greater Madawaska council has agreed to ship the township’s household garbage to the Lafleche Environmental site in Moose Creek north of Cornwall, starting in the new year. However, council stressed it is an interim move until a final overall waste disposal strategy is finalized. Councillors estimate hauling the household garbage out of the township will buy them some time by increasing the life of the township’s landfills by 50 per cent. The township is in the process of closing two landfills and changing the other three to transfer stations with the help of a COMRIF grant. Once that project is completed, council will have to determine where the township’s garage will be sent.

Council agreed to forego signing a fiveyear contract with Lafleche, even though it would lower the $75-a-tonne tipping fee. Reeve Peter Emon said the township wants to keep its options open in case a waste processing plant or other disposal alternative is developed in this area. In a report to council, public works manager Jamie Doering said it would cost the township about $40,000 a year in tipping and hauling fees to have the household waste taken from the Norway Lake, Griffith and Mt. St. Patrick dumps to Lafleche. He explained the hauling would eliminate about 25 per cent of the volume going into the landfill sites and reduce the amount of cover material by the same amount. The hauling will become feasible when the township receives a new roll-off container truck expected in November.

Renfrew Operational plans ready for town’s drinking water STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com One of the fallouts from Canada’s worst-ever water contamination case was more paper work for municipalities. But it will also mean more peace of mind for municipalities operating water-treatment systems across the province, Brian Symondson of the Ontario Clean Water Agency (OCWA) told Renfrew council during its Oct. 26 briefing session. The Town of Renfrew is about to approve and sign the operational plans for the Renfrew water treatment plant and the town’s water distribution system, around the deadline of Nov. 1, after developing the documents over the past year. Signatures will come from OCWA and three town officials − development and works director Mike Asselin, clerk Kim Bulmer and Mayor Sandi Heins. The 21-part operational plan for the water treatment plant and water distribution system includes a section on risk assessment. No red flags appeared. The risk-assessment table describes potential hazardous events, their possible outcomes, and the control measures already in place at the water treatment plant. “A lot of it is just a best-practices documentation,” said Asselin of the documents, which are part of Ontario’s new Quality Management System for drinking water. RECOMMENDATIONS AFTER WALKERTON CRISIS The May 2000 contaminated water crisis in Walkerton resulted in the death of seven residents, after its water supply became contaminated with manure spread on a farm near the Ontario town. At the time Premier Mike Harris blamed the former NDP

government for loosening water standards. However, the eventual public inquiry pointed some of the blame at cutbacks by Harris’s Conservative government. More importantly, the public inquiry overseen by Justice Dennis O’Connor put in place a checks-and-balance system to prevent a reoccurrence of Walkerton-like incidents. The Walkerton Inquiry resulted in many recommendations, including the spending of about $280 million to develop a Safe Drinking Water Act. One of the pursued recommendations was that water systems owners (such as the Town of Renfrew) hold appropriate documentation, and that training courses for all water systems operators be required and accessible. Another recommendation followed up on was that municipalities review the management and operating structure of their water systems, and uphold standards for their employees in the water-care sector. Symondson says Walkerton’s tainted-water tragedy of 2000 led to the adoption of a Quality Management System, of which the operational plans are front and centre. ‘QUALITY MANAGEMENT’ The Province wanted a “quality management system that would ensure the water systems are managed in a planned fashion, so all staffed are trained on it, and owners − the municipality − endorse the system and how it is to be operated,” said Symondson. “They (the operational plans) are important because they outline the commitment, and the management plan, to operate the Renfrew water treatment plant and distribution system by the development and works crew to a very high standard.”

The operational plans will be available to the public at the town hall and on the town’s website. Symondson, the operations manager for OCWA’s local hub, pointed out that southwestern Ontario municipalities have been the first to complete their

operational plans. Therefore, they are good examples for other municipalities looking at what to avoid and what best practices to follow in their documentation. “They’ve broken trail for us,” said Symondson. Renfrew’s two operational plans are 61 pages and 67 pages

Zumba, dance and gymnastics The ZumbAtomic fitness sessions for children on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Ma-TeWay Activity Centre are doing quite well, Renfrew Parks and Recreation director Kelley Whitman-McKie noted at the October recreation committee meeting. Registration for the youngest group is sold out with a waiting list, while the older group is 90 per cent full.

The parks and recreation department will host children’s dance programs for 21 weeks running January to May 2010 under the direction of Melissa Frisk. These dance sessions will run on Saturday mornings with a minimum of five and maximum of 15 students. The gymnastics program is also slated to start in January.

There is a maximum capacity of 20 children per age group. With one certified instructor (Meghan Campbell) and one experienced assistant and potentially a few added volunteers, Whitman-McKie anticipates a starting point of mid-January. The program will expand as the department is able to train and sustain certified instructors.

Close games highlight Gents hockey league They went from one extreme to the other in the Gentlemen’s Hockey League last Thursday evening. The first game finished up 1-1 as Matt Wolfgram made 21 saves for Sterling’s No Frills and Mid-Town counterpart Jeremy Scobie 27 stops. Don Griese and Paul Boudreau scored for their respective teams. Boudreau’s goal with six minutes remaining pulled the Rug Rats even. Steve Radke snared a hat trick to steer Tim Hortons past Finnigan’s 6-5 in game two. Rob Stewart, Bob Mosco and Doug Pilgrim divided singles for Tim Hortons. Chris Holmes added two assists while Rob Hume earned the win with 21 saves. Derek McGrimmon answered twice in what

became the Roadhouse’s first loss of 2009-10 after four consecutive victories. Shawn Mulvagh, Terry McIntyre and Lee Rose collected solos. Bryden Schaap faced 21 shots. SNHL The Legion blanked Coco Jarry’s 5-0 in a Tuesday night Saturday Night Hockey League contest behind Jeremy Scobie’s 23-save shutout. Chad Mullen put the restaurant on the scoreboard in the opening period. Mike Warren, Patrick Neville, Jordan MacMillan and Kyle Warren padded the lead with third-stanza markers. Standings: Kelly Homes 9 points, Legion 5, Pitt Contracting 4, Mickey’s Promotions 3, Coco Jarry’s 3.

Pilgrim didn’t score this time, but he did get one later as the Wolves outlasted the Warriors 6-5 at Renfrew’s annual eight-team major midget hockey tournament at the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre. The Pembroke Kings topped the Orleans Blues 1-0 in overtime to claim the tournament championship late Sunday afternoon. Four Renfrew teams are at home to the Muskrat Voyageurs in Upper Ottawa Valley Hockey League play Saturday. The Atom Wolves meet Muskrat at 1:30 p.m., followed by the Peewee Wolves at 2:30 p.m., Bantam Wolves at 3:45 p.m. and Major Midget Timberwolves at 6:15 p.m. The Minor Midget Timberwolves are in a tournament in Kemptville this weekend.

Wolves host the champs PETER CLARK peter.clark@metroland.com After losing both ends of a two-game road swing to Metro Division opponents, with a lineup depleted somewhat by illness, the Renfrew Timberwolves get to come home. But that doesn’t make it any easier. The Wolves – 5-6-0-and-1 in 14 Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League starts – face off against the defending league champion Ottawa West Golden Knights Friday night. Game time at the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre is 8 p.m. Ottawa West jumped out to a 3-0 opening-period lead en route to a 5-1 win over the Wolves in their previous meeting at Ottawa West last week. With Halloween on the horizon, children under 12 attending tomorrow night’s game, wear-

ing a Halloween costume and accompanied by an adult will get in free of charge. Prizes will be given out. On Sunday, the Wolves play in Stittsville at 2:30 p.m. TIGHT GROUP The Wolves enter weekend play in a three-way deadlock for third place with the Almonte Thunder and Stittsville Royals in the Valley Division. All three clubs have 11 points. For that matter, only five points separate the top from the bottom of the Valley loop. The Arnprior Packers lead with 14 points, one better than the Perth Blue Wings. The Pontiac Juniors remain in sixth place, but after pulling out a pair of dramatic wins last weekend, they have climbed back into contention with nine points.

Available only through OFSC district offices, the new classic permit is a Go Snowmobiling initiative intended to increase trail riding among owners of antique sleds and participation among families whose older snowmobiles may have previously been inactive. The classic permit is only for sleds that are model year 1995 or older, at a fee that half the regular cost of a full season permit.

On the weekend, in Tweed, Renfrew was represented by the teams of Barb Westgarth, Yvonne Sklepowicz, Susan Boyland and Joan Hickey in the women’s division and Rob Warren, Paul Villard, Andy Sklepowicz and Tony Lapienes in the men’s, in the provincial play downs for the Dominion Cup, a competition of club champions from across the province. The men’s team lost 6-2 to Carleton Place as skip Warren’s good game was not well supported by his team. In the second game Renfrew held a two-point lead over Ottawa’s Granite Club in the sixth when a game-turning pick (debris or imprint on the ice causing a rock to change direction) on Warren’s last stone resulted in a four-point swing and a last-rocks loss and elimination. In women’s action a last rock loss to Carleton Heights of Ottawa put the ladies on the B side after an extremely well played and exciting game. The second game against Quinte of Belleville resulted in a three-point

ANDY SKLEPOWICZ Renfrew Curling Rink Well, it has finally arrived. Just as children await Christmas or their birthdays, curlers await the first game of a new curling season. After what seems like months and months, there is no better feeling than finally settling into the hack and, with both trepidation and excitement, delivering that first rock. A new season has begun; old friends and new are enjoyed, shots are made and missed, the game is intense and the win or loss is quickly forgotten in good cheer and laughter. And what a week it has been. All leagues are in full swing. The club is hopping every day and evening. Many new faces are evident and returning curlers, long absent, are back. The ice is looking great and curling even better. The competition is stiff on the ice and the camaraderie is better than ever. In opening Low Cup action (a senior men’s interclub competition) Renfrew came away with a perfect start, going 4-0 against two determined Pembroke teams.

THEFTS • A parking meter was stolen from Renfrew Avenue East some time between Oct. 15 and 19. There are no suspects • Five rings have been stolen from a residence in Horton Township. The time of the theft is unknown and there were no signs of forced entry to the home. Const. Marc Bennett is investigating. • A 1996 Chevy S10 pickup truck was stolen from a residence in Renfrew Oct. 24. The truck was discovered a short time later on Highway 60 at Butler Road with extensive damage. Const. Besner in investigating. • Some time over the weekend of Oct. 16 to 19 unknown people attempted to steal a black 1993 Jeep YJ from 21 Jackson Lane in McNab Township. Const. John Birmingham is investigating. IMPAIRED DRIVING While investigating an unrelated incident, Renfrew OPP officers observed a possible impaired driver on Highway 60 in Renfrew Oct. 20. Investigation revealed the officers believed the male driver of the vehicle was impaired by

a drug. The male was arrested and following testing by a drug-recognition expert, an 18-year-old from Ignace was charged with impaired driving. One male was released on a promise to appear in court in Renfrew on Nov. 25. Const. Mark Condron investigated.

Ghosts, goblins and other spooks out and about in local neighbourhoods this Saturday to trick or treat should have safety as well as candy on their minds, say OPP. Although Halloween activities are meant to be fun and harmless, they could also be dangerous, caution police. The weather, darkness and excitement of the night can create hazardous situations for children. The following are tips the OPP suggest that might assist in making the spookiest night of the year a safe one: • be visible – wear light coloured reflective costumes – carry a flashlight; • choose make-up rather than masks, or cut larger eyeholes for increased vision;

DRUG CHARGE On Oct. 23 Const. Joey Limlaw stopped a vehicle in Renfrew. Subsequent investigation revealed the driver had possession of a quantity of marijuana. The marijuana was seized and the male was charged with possession. He was released on a promise to appear in court in Renfrew on Dec. 2. CALLS FOR SERVICE The Renfrew OPP responded to 152 calls for service during the past week. If you have information on any of the above crimes, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222TIPS or online at www.valleytips.ca. If your information leads to an arrest or charge, you would earn a cash reward of up to $2,000 and never have to attend court as a witness. The Crime Stoppers phones are answered 24 hours a day and Crime Stoppers does not subscribe to call display or call trace.

MISCHIEF • Several windows were broken at the Renfrew Power Generation building on Bridge Street in Renfrew over the past weekend. • Halloween decorations were vandalized at various locations in Renfrew. • A vehicle on Farewell Street in Renfrew was damaged Oct. 25 when unknown people kicked the vehicle several times.

• avoid crisscrossing the street while trick or treating and when crossing the street look both ways; • children should visit homes that have outside porch lights on - never go inside the house they visit; • motorists need to exercise caution and pay extra attention when entering and exiting driveways; • home owners should keep candles out of children’s reach and away from curtains and other objects that could catch fire; • make your home safe for trick-or-treaters – remove things that could easily cause children to trip and fall; • have an adult inspect all treats before anything is eaten.

How many potato varieties can you name? Probably a dozen, right? There are about 5,000 potato varieties worldwide. Three thousand of them are found in the Andes alone, mainly in Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador, Chile and Columbia. Although generally thought to be Irish in origin, the potato is actually a native of the Andes. It was widely cultivated in South America at the time of the Spanish Conquest and was popular with the Aztecs and the Incas. Would you say that the United States is the world’s largest potato producing country? Not so. China is. Nearly a third of the world’s potatoes are harvested in China and India. China grows roughly 26 per cent of the world’s potatoes. It’s interesting to note that the geographic shift of potato production has been away from wealthier countries toward lower income areas of the world. Will we be seeing Chinese grown potatoes in our supermarkets – in a few years maybe? That’s a scary thought. Did you ever think you’d see Chinese honey here? The United Nations FAO reports that worldwide production was 315 million tonnes of potatoes in 2006. About 175 potato varieties were on display at the Ontario Potato Field Day held at Alliston, Ont., on Aug. 20. Included in that number were fresh market, processing and specialty potatoes. Eugenia Banks, potato specialist for OMAFRA, in her report in The Grower said there was a lot of interest in Dark Red Chieftain, a mutant of the popular redskinned variety Chieftain.

The mutant has a deeper red skin colour that does not fade in storage. It is more tolerant to scab, and does not skin as much as the regular Chieftain. The Real Potatoes Company based in P.E.I. will market this variety. Banks reports that Yukon Gem is a mid-season variety with light yellow flesh and higher yield potential than Yukon Gold, one of the parents of this new variety. Tubers are round to oval with yellow skin and pink splashes around the eyes. It is susceptible to common scab. Yukon Gem was developed in North Dakota as a replacement for Yukon Gold. Ambra is an early, yellow flesh table variety that produces attractive oval tubers that size well, reports Banks. It is susceptible to scab, but not as sensitive as Yukon Gold. Ambra is marketed by HZPC Americas Corp., based in P.E.I.

Elfe is a yellow flesh variety with long, smooth, oval tubers and medium-early maturity. Banks reports that Elfe has good flavour and is marketed by the Real Potatoes Company from PEI. Mazama is an early-maturing, red-skinned variety with oval tubers suitable for table use and the redskinned creamer market. Banks reports that Mazama is marketed Potato Variety Management Institute (PVMI) based in Oregon. Romanze is a midseason variety with light yellow flesh. Banks reports that tubers are oval with dark red skin. It is susceptible to scab. Romanze is marketed by Real Potatoes. There’s also Merlin – a variety many of us never heard of before. The Grower has some interesting statistics from Statistics Canada estimating the 2009 potato acreage. • Nationally, farmers have planted an estimated 378,400 acres in potatoes in 2009 – that’s 2,300 acres less than in 2008. • P.E.I. growers planted 85,000 acres or 8.1 per cent less than the previous year. • Provinces that had no change in planted acres were Manitoba (82,000 acres), Alberta (52,500 acres) and British Columbia (7,500 acres). • Provinces that reported an increase in planted acres were Ontario (37,000 acres, up 3 per cent), New Brunswick (58,000 acres, up 5 per cent), Quebec (43,700 acres, up 3 per cent) and Saskatchewan (10,000 acres, up 5 per cent). • The U.S. potato crop is slightly over 1 million acres. It hasn’t increased in recent years.

Cemetery incident was nothing short of disgraceful To the editor: I can’t believe what people will do. With the second year anniversary of my father’s death looming over us, we decided to visit St. Francis Cemetery to honour my father and to our surprise someone who had no respect for anything or anyone decided that they would take something that was not theirs. I think that it is disgraceful that anyone would steal from a grave site. My father was an avid fisherman and we honoured him with a ceramic fishing vessel and flowers on top of the grave stone but, it was to our dismay when we arrived today that the fishing vessel had been ripped out of the flower arrangement which caused my mother – who is a senior – to weep and hurt us all very much. If the person who did this has any type of heart, now would be the time to put the vessel back at the grave site and maybe God will forgive them or her. Kathryn Windsor Renfrew

simply because of our respect for all human life. Instead, we have miles to go as far as relief for pain, competence, compassion and caring go. Regardless, it is never right to kill an innocent person, since every human life has inherent worth and dignity in all circumstances, and only God, the author of all life, can decide the time of death. Sincerely, Yvonne Dienesch Pembroke

mentality is that of death as a solution? After all, it’s less expensive to kill a burdensome patient than to surrender him with love and care, and help him as he dies in God’s good time. And if a person who is considered a nuisance can be killed off at the beginning of life, why not at the end, or anywhere in between for that matter? I submit that if abortion had never been allowed, that development of good quality palliative care would have been a priority for years already,

To the editor: Once again Canada is under threat of ‘legalized’ physician-assisted suicide and euthanasia. For the third time, Bloc Quebecois MP Francine Lalonde has proposed a motion to allow euthanasia, this time Bill C384, which was debated Oct. 2 in Parliament for the first time. Apparently an amendment has been proposed; but the reality is that there are no ‘safeguards’ once that forbidden door is opened. In the Netherlands (my own native land) where euthanasia is legal, I believe thousands are killed annually against their will. In 1990 alone, there were 6,000 involuntary that are known of. No, there are no safeguards. C384 would qualify anyone over 18 to be assisted to die, regardless of whether he or she is terminally ill, imminently dying or not, or in depression; and regardless of whether appropriate treatments have been attempted. Anyone merely ‘appearing lucid’ could be killed within two weeks if two medical practitioners confirm his or her condition. This bill poses a real danger for vulnerable people, such as sick, depressed, elderly and disabled, who may see themselves as a burden on family or society. The so-called right to die quickly becomes the duty to die. If we want to be truly compassionate, and allow people to die with dignity, then we must allow them to live until God decides to take them; and, very importantly, use all our resources to develop excellent palliative care. Having recently experienced the death of a beloved uncle, I have had a bird’s eye view of the deficiencies of the Canadian medical system, and realize how desperately improvement is needed. Can it be that having already legalized abortion in 1969, the underlying, and perhaps unspoken,

To the editor: When my husband and I moved to Renfrew last year, we felt like it was a friendly and safe place to live. It was a perfect town in which to live. When I read the police report in the Oct. 22 Weekender I was shocked. The amount of mischief and vandalism was a wake-up call. The graffiti, destruction and stealing sounded like ‘Big City’ problems. What happened? Is our community doomed to be a Big City with the matching illegal actions? I hope not! Do we fear walking down our streets, holding handbags tight? Has Renfrew stolen charges from the Big City? Please let us get back to the Small Town. Sincerely, Barb Stopa River Road

Choices and consequences Calabogie/Renfrew Pro-Life Association We all know how contentious an issue abortion is. There is a distinct division between those who are pro-life and those who are pro-choice. It would appear that many women faced with the dilemma of an unplanned pregnancy will often say that they felt they really had no other choice but abortion. Why is that? Is it because a woman’s support system, those to whom she looks to for support and understanding at a very critical time in her life, are pressuring her to get an abortion because it is the quickest solution to her problem? Every decision we make in life has consequences. For a woman who has an abortion there can be and often are serious physical and emotional consequences that can change her life forever. One has only to listen to the testimony of women who have had abortions and regret them to know that the consequences are not imaginary but very real and long lasting. So what are the other options besides abortion? Adoption is a selfless and loving choice. It is by no means an easy decision for a young woman to make. It entails carrying one’s baby to full term and then placing it with a loving family who will raise that baby as their own. There are thousands of couples in Canada who cannot have children of their own and who are obliged to travel to foreign countries to adopt because there are not enough babies available in this country. Another option is to keep the baby. Depending on one’s circumstances, that also can be difficult but it doesn’t have to be. Women don’t need abortions; they need the loving support and understanding of family, friends and most importantly of the community. Resources are available for women who need support beyond family and friends. Many people are not aware of other alternatives within their reach. Those alternatives are in the form of pregnancy crisis centres. One such centre is the Pregnancy Support Services of the Upper Ottawa Valley situated in Pembroke (613-635-7440.) The services provided are free and confidential. These centres are a beacon of light and hope for women who agonize over an unplanned pregnancy and who want to examine all their options but feel alone and desperate. If tax dollars could be put to establishing more pregnancy services centres we would see a reduction in abortions and women would be far less at risk of suffering needless physical and emotional harm. The babies spared death by abortion would become our hope and much needed security for the future of this country. We should be demanding our tax dollars be put toward saving, rather than destroying, life. But until that day comes, we remain a country crippled by lack of insight and subject to the consequences of its unwise choices.

Honouring our veterans ROBERT ST. MICHAEL Renfrew Legion PRO Hello, everyone. Another month has gone by too quickly, I’m sure you’ll agree. Branch 148 Renfrew Legion has been as busy as ever working to maintain and garner the due respect that should be afforded to our veterans, past and present. With this in mind, please do not forget that the most important day on every Legion’s calendar is the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month – Remembrance Day. This is the day that is set aside to remember and honour our fallen and serving comrades in the never-ending quest for freedom – a freedom that has cost many of our Canadian Men and Women their lives since the formation of this great and free Country that we call home. Stop and think for a second – the guys and gals who are virtually putting their lives on the line on a daily basis so that we can enjoy our freedom are doing it for us – you and me – and our families. With this in mind, the Renfrew Legion will be holding its annual Poppy drive on Oct. 30 and 31. Please support this once yearly endeavour to help us make a difference in the life of a veteran or his/her family. Entertainment is doing well in our lounge and on Saturday, Oct. 31 we are having a music jam and a Halloween party from 3 to 7 p.m. There will be snacks, prizes and a costume contest. All are welcome to come down and have a ghoulish time with us. Also, the Renfrew Legion members and executive would like to wish the OPP a wonderful 100th anniversary. These guys and gals are every bit a veteran as our soldiers. For any more information on hall bookings and/ or Ladies’ Auxiliary Catering, call 613-432-6450. Yours in comradeship, Robert St. Michael

Killaloe OPP lay drug charges

On Oct. 21 officers with the Killaloe detachment of the OPP, the OPP Canine Unit, Ottawa Drug Enforcement Section and members of the Emergency Response Team executed a Controlled Drug and Substance Act warrant on a residence on Sand Road in Bonnechere Valley Township. A 21-year-old female, 33-year-old male and 49-year-old male – all of Bonnechere Valley Township – were charged with production of marijuana, possession of more than 30 grams of marijuana, and trafficking marijuana. All three parties are scheduled to appear in Killaloe court on Nov. 18. Const. Liz VanMassenhoven is the lead investigator. On Oct. 20 Const. Paul Hicks was attending a residence on Ruby Road in Bonnechere Valley Township to conduct an investigation with respect to bail vio-

lations. A 56-year-old Bonnechere Valley Township resident was charged with possession of marijuana. The Killaloe/Whitney detachments of the OPP are still receiving complaints of driver’s licences being sent to local addresses with a stranger’s name. If this occurs, police are advising people to return the driver’s licence to the Ministry of Transportation. This is a scam that people are using in the larger centres where their vehicles are required to pass an emission test. They in return provide an address from a rural area to update their driver information and avoid the emissions test. After as couple of days they re-attend a driving centre and advise they have moved and are then provided another driver’s licence.

Crime Stoppers seek public’s help

Pembroke/Renfrew County Crime Stoppers and Arnprior OPP are asking for the public’s assistance in solving the theft of vehicles. During September and October 2009 Renfrew and Arnprior OPP detachments have investigated six motor vehicle thefts. The vehicles stolen are SUVs and pickup trucks. Many have been recovered in a location in McNab Township with extensive damage. Crime Stoppers Pembroke/Renfrew County believes that someone may have

information that could assist police in solving this crime. If you have information on any criminal offence that results in charges being laid, you qualify for an award of up to $2,000. Call Pembroke/Renfrew County Crime Stoppers at 735-8477 that is 735-TIPS or 1-800-222-8477. All tips remain anonymous and you will not have to attend court. Crime Stoppers does not subscribe to call display. Telephones are answered 24 hours a day. Or visit www. valleytips.ca.

Graded county road shoulders too soft to be safe, says resident STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com “I’ve seen children on their bikes fall over. I’ve seen residents curse.” The words come from Horton Township resident Dave Brown, in responding to how the County of Renfrew public works department grades the shoulders of local county roads. His comments were made as a one-man delegation during the Oct. 6 Horton council meeting. “We’re in the 21st century and most municipalities, but not all, do have rollers and smooth out and pack the roads, so it allows children or adults to walk or jog … without being in the middle of the road.” The problem with county grading, says Brown, is that loose sediment two to six inches deep takes a week or two to settle. Councillor Dave Bennett says Renfrew County public works and engineering director Dave Darch is aware of the situation. However, Bennett also said: “As far as them compacting the roads, they don’t have the apparatus to put behind the grader, and if (the county) did that would be an upgrade of service, which they’re not looking at at this time.” At the same time, Bennett said Brown raises legitimate concerns. It’s estimated local county roads are graded three times each summer, including Castleford Road on which Brown lives. Bennett indicated public works director Darch, in discussions between Horton council and the county, has talked about how future roads work programs will have to recognize increasing use of roadways by residents for recreational uses. Before speaking to council, Brown sent Horton Township an early-September letter that said: “We ought to do everything possible to make walking or riding a bike, etc., more in tune with the 21st century.” Brown’s written submission included two photographs, which showed the depth of the loose sediment on a graded shoulder. Brown isn’t the first to air concerns about road needs and road usage. See MASTER TRANSPORTATION, Page 27

RAG: News from the local art guild We all remember those days when we were going to school and we received those wonderful boxes of Crayola crayons. They had such a wonderful smell to them and seemed enthuse you to use them. In fact the company I believe to date has maintained that smell in their product. The excitement grew even more when if you were lucky enough to get not just the box of eight but the larger 24 set that held those wonderful colours, gold and silver. Okay, maybe not everyone got excited as I did but I know those were the fun things we looked forward to in those days. Somehow can’t see my grandkids having the same reaction. The other creative tool was the coloured pencil. I am sure many parents opted for them if only not to give their children ‘messy’ paints. Pencil and coloured pencil is a wonderful medium. In the Renfrew Art Guild we have two members who use them exclusively. Peter Sidock does wonderful graphic paintings of buildings around and near Renfrew. The other artist is Shirley Ann Cone who works with coloured pencil.

A native of Renfrew, Shirley Ann has returned with her family after living in Calgary. Ten years ago before she left, she studied pencil at Orleans Visual Art School. She has also studied in Calgary at the University of Calgary and the North Mount Visual Art Centre. She has taken the coloured pencil to its extreme. The patience that goes into this medium is astounding. The layers upon layers of strokes develop into a wonderful painting. Shirley Ann has agreed to demonstrate her talent at our next meeting. We are all looking forward to an enjoyable meeting. RAG meets the first Tuesday of the month at Trinity-St. Andrews United Church 291 Plaunt St. in Renfrew at 7 p.m. Please use the Quarry Street entrance. Everyone is welcome to join us. SHOW NOTICE The Renfrew Art Guild will be exhibiting at Festival Hall, Pembroke from Nov. 7 to Dec. 16. We encourage everyone to come and see the show. For more information, call Diana 613-433-3635.

Talks stall on purchase of Beaumen Recycling JOHN CARTER john.carter@metroland.com The bid by six area municipalities to buy the Beaumen Recycling plant is on hold, raising fears about lost jobs and increased municipal taxes. Beaumen owner Dan Menard warns he’ll be closing the doors of his Renfrew plant once his municipal recycling and garbage contracts are up in the next two years. He plans to end his commercial pick-up at the end of this year. Menard received a letter in early October informing him the Joint Recycling Management Committee, tasked to recommend whether the municipalities should buy the plant, has disbanded, at least temporarily. Menard says the committee’s decision, along with Renfrew council’s refusal to get involved, has left him frustrated and the plant’s future very much in doubt. He says he feels badly for the 20-plus jobs that will be lost to Renfrew when he closes down. It will also be more costly for area taxpayers not to have a local recycling plant and have to rely on an outsider to come in to provide the service, he maintained. McNab-Braeside Deputy Reeve and committee member Elmer Raycroft explained that Waste Diversion Ontario (WDO) has told the committee that to be eligible for provincial funding it would have to show the plant purchase is more cost-effective than alternatives. To that end, Arnprior staff are working on a joint draft tender for a recycling pick-up for the town, McNab-Braeside and Horton. The three have been grouped together because they all have curbside pick-up, explained Raycroft. “The three other municipalities have no curbside, so they are looking at other solutions.” However, letting the matter go to tender could kill the municipal attempt to buy

his Renfrew plant, said Menard. He maintained the municipalities are playing a dangerous game by letting out a tender in an attempt to determine costs. They can not reject all bids without good reason or they’ll be sued, he said. Menard said if the municipalities want proof that having a recycling plant in the area is the cheapest option, they need only to go back to 2006 when Beaumen’s bid on the Town of Renfrew’s recycling contract was almost $80,000 a year cheaper than the only other offer made. “We’re putting it out to tender because the WDO says we have to show it’s cheaper (before they’ll provide funding),” explained Raycroft. “We’re not saying WDO is done with us … once we show them what we’re doing, maybe they’ll come back with funding.” He said the joint recycling committee at its last meeting Sept. 21 agreed to send a letter to the provincial government detailing its efforts to obtain funding for the purchase and past WDO enthusiasm for the proposal. The municipalities have made it clear the purchase depends on receiving adequate funding from WDO. Raycroft said the committee is also concerned because the province has indicated new recycling regulations to come out in April 2010 will have a major effect on programs. With producers expected to pay more of recycling costs and a new emphasis on large centralized recycling depots, the committee is worried the Beaumen purchase would no longer be supported by WDO, he said. “We feel it’s unwise to make any commitments before next April.” Raycroft said local municipalities should expect an increase in recycling costs no matter what route they take, as Beaumen has been holding the line for years as it extends contracts on a year-byyear basis.

Master transportation roads strategy could be approved Continued from Page 25 In fact, in the last few years, Darch says there’s an increasing desire to see roads as more than a network for trucks and cars. That very concern, he says hopefully, will result in the approval of funds to create a master transportation roads strategy (for the county’s 2010 budget), Darch told the Mercury.. The study could span several years and cost about $150,000, he suspects. “It’s a big undertaking,” said Darch

of the study, which he says would involve several county departments, including property and development and emergency services. “We recognize the increasing demand for our roads to service more than just vehicles,” added Darch, in reference to pedestrians, all-terrain vehicles, cyclists and runners. “It’s coming,” says Darch of expanding uses of roads networks. “I think it’s a product of the county getting influenced by urbanization.”

Each week we feature animals from the Arnprior and District Humane Society that are up for adoption. # 3366 Gus Gus is a five-year-old neutered male grey tabby with white markings. He has been at the shelter since April when he was found outside, likely dropped off the night before. Gus is very affectionate; he will sit on your lap for attention and likes to be petted and have his chin scratched. Gus is very curious and nosy – he likes to be in the middle of anything that is going on. He is great with other cats, he really enjoys their company and would be best suited in a home with at least one cat. He does not enjoy being picked up and carried but will come when called. Please consider giving this handsome cat a loving home. # 3387 Libby Libby is a two-year-old grey spayed female who was brought to the shelter in April. She had been a stray since the fall before. She had five kittens the day she was brought in. They have all found homes. Libby is an outgoing cat - she is affectionate but independent and will come to you for attention on her terms. She gets along well with other cats as long as they respect her space. She will require regular grooming. Libby is very gentle and would be good with children. Please consider adopting this beautiful cat. Supplies the shelter needs: paper towels, plastic grocery bags, fabric softener sheets and baby blankets. Win a quilt, collector doll or child’s bike in the humane society raffle. Tickets are on sale now at the shelter.

Community Community Support Month JUDY EWART October is Community Support Month, a time to celebrate the community services that help to keep people living in their own homes and in their own communities for as long as possible. Community support services include Seniors’ Home Supports, Alzheimer/adult day programs, attendant services for persons with physical disabilities, assisted living in supportive housing, caregiver support and education, foot care, Meals on Wheels, personal support, homemaking, respite services and end-of-life/ palliative care. With community support services providing $1.35 in services for every $1 received, they are a cost efficient way of delivering services within our communities for seniors and people with physical disabilities. While being cost-efficient, community support services provide a number of other practical benefits, such as keeping people within their homes where they prefer to be; promoting physical and mental well-being; helping individuals care for themselves independently; preventing or delaying deterioration of health and premature institutionalization; reducing visits to the emergency room as well as admissions to hospitals and decreasing isolation and extending support to family caregivers. By making the most of the resources available and focusing on wellness and prevention, these agencies help to spare many taxpayers the cost of health services needed to respond to illness and residential/institutional care needs. With the seniors population doubling in the next sixteen

years it is imperative we sustain the efforts of community support services. Last year in Ontario, community support services assisted one million seniors and people with disabilities or a debilitating illness with just one per cent of Ontario’s health care budget. A portion of the funding for community support services comes from Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs), while the remainder of the funding comes through donations, client fees and fundraising activities. In addition to providing many practical services, community support agencies work closely together to ensure that individuals remain active as they age and retire, by providing a variety of interesting volunteer opportunities. Many of the local Home Support agencies are members of the Ontario Community Support Association, a provincial organization that provides training, several agency benefits, and has been quite helpful in providing the information used in this article. For more information about community support services or to find a service provider elsewhere in Ontario, you can go to their website at www.osca.ca. For more details about Renfrew and Area Seniors’ Home Support you can call our office at 613-432-7691 or visit our website at www.seniorshomesupport.ca. In Calabogie you can call the Seniors’ Home Support office at 613-752-2828. Judy Ewart is co-ordinator of volunteer services for Seniors’ Home Support. Her column is made possible by an Ontario Trillium Foundation grant.

New heights reached at 2009 Reach for the Rainbow Sunshine Coach telethon PETER CLARK peter.clark@metroland.com Renfrew and the surrounding community came through with flying colours for a terrific cause once again. As the clock struck 8 on Sunday night, the tote board flipped over to an all-time new high. The Reach for the Rainbow Sunshine Coach Telethon reached out and brought in $61,773 for this valuable service, cracking last year’s highwater mark of $61,122. With the economy the way it is, Norm Dagg, in his first year as co-producer of the telethon, wasn’t sure what to expect. “We are very pleased at reaching a new record of $61,773,” Dagg said. “In these tough economic

times, it was good to see the people of the community continue to reach out and support the Sunshine Coach.” “We are very pleased with the outcome,” Dagg’s wife Kathy, also a co-producer and emcee, added. COGECO again broadcast the seven-hour event in the Grant Gymnasium at Renfrew Collegiate. “We always want to pass the previous year’s total by at least one dollar,” she noted. “We added a few things this year, such as Coach’s Corner and the all-day band. I think they helped add to the show.” “Obviously, the money is the main thing, but putting on a good show is my goal as director and producer. “We are always open to suggestions.”

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

www.healthstart.ca 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, November 9th 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

Dealing with the hard things in life to help them and receive the comfort that God seeks so desperately to give. God also gives purpose to our suffering; many times we can endure great tragedy and loss if we know there is reason or purpose in it. In verse four of the above Scripture we find one of the purposes for suffering is so that when we have received God’s comfort and come through the situation, we can help others. Someone who has gone through what another is suffering is in a better position to help because they know some of the things the other person is going through first hand. They can relate to the suffering person in ways that those who have not gone through the same situation cannot. Dr. Paul Brand, in his book, Fearfully and Wonderfully Made, asked this question of his patients and their families, “Who helped you in your suffering?” The answer he would invariably receive was that of a person who didn’t have smooth answers or a winsome, effervescent personality. It was someone quiet, understanding, who listens more than they talk, who does not judge or even offer advice. A sense of presence. Someone there when I needed him. A hand to hold, an understanding, bewildered hug. A shared lump in the throat.’” Hopefully you have these kind of people in your life, but if not, know that God will comfort you if you simply reach out to Him by faith.

REV. THOMAS A. SMITH Renfrew Baptist Church What happens when hard things come into people’s lives? Sometimes life seems to bring an avalanche of hard circumstances upon us and we feel like that avalanche is going to crush us. A job is lost, financial troubles come, a friendship or marriage fails, a loved one dies and our lives are thrown into disarray. We wonder how we will deal with a life that seems out of control. Is there anything or anyone who can help in these times of need? Sometimes good friends and family members can help each other in these circumstances, but at other times, in spite of their best efforts, they fail in their attempts at comfort. The Bible says there is another source of comfort for those who feel like they are at the end of their rope. In 2 Corinthians 1:3-4, Paul says, “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort,” who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort that we ourselves have received from God. Not only does God suffer with those who feel overwhelmed by their circumstances or are suffering some kind of loss; He wants to be invited in to help the sufferer deal with their troubles. He wants to become an integral part of the solution in their lives. Anyone can invite God in

I have questions that I need answering. My question is very unpretentious. You do not have to answer if you feel there is no need to answer. They are quite simple. Why are we JESSICA always angry? CLOSS Can we love Mercury u n c o n d i t i o n - Weekender ally and withco-op student out the ire? And why hate when you can love? Anger and hate take so much more energy than to love something. You can feel warm and fuzzy instead of ripped and shredded. It is a whole lot better than being cold and cruel. Feeling a certain way is something special and means something special to any one person you talk or see every day. A person can feel all happy with joy and love and then the next moment they can feel rejection and despair. It can happen in a split second. Just like that. You might call it mood swings; however, we humans are very sensitive beings, with vulnerable, delicate emotions and feelings. We might not want to admit it to anyone, but one word could ruin us to the point of depression; yet again our precarious emotions. This moment in time will always stay with us, no matter how insignificant, no matter how small. Why waste the time to be ravening and hateful? You will never get this time back; no matter how much you want it back or try to get it back. To try not to waste the time you have in your life is a conundrum every one person has, no matter who they are. What time is it? How much time do we have? What time will we get there? Time, time, time. That is the number one thing we think about each and every single day. No matter how relevant the situation or place, time will never stand still for even one second. To be cautious is to care. To care is to have heart. To have heart is to have love without hate and anger. The relevancy of any one person is his or her feelings and emotions. Our core feeling and emotion gravitates toward love and compassion. Have compassion and love unconditionally. Feel free to express with your heart. And ban all loathing that tries to fill the heart.

ed to learn that the Pembroke Heritage Manor wanted to support our efforts and offered to host a party,” says Kathy Kennedy, unit manager. On Thursday, Nov. 5 at 7 p.m. staff and residents from the Pembroke Heritage Manor, supported by local businesses, invite the public to a fun evening of fashion and dessert as they help the unit to officially launch this new event. “It is wonderful to see women of all ages join together and help support important research into cancers that affect

women,” says Kennedy. “And you can do it right from home.” Girls Night In is made simple, online. You can take the first step to hosting your own Girls Night In by visiting www.GirlsNightInForCancer.ca or by contacting the local Canadian Cancer Society office at 613-735-2571. You can register your event online, and download a host kit, party theme ideas and e-vites. The site also offers information on breast, uterine, ovarian and cervical cancers.

To each and every person who helped keep the farm running while Barend and Matthijs could not – Thank you. To Pastor Dave Tigchelaar who visited and prayed with us these past few months, and gave a touching service – Thank you. To the wonderful ladies who helped organize lunch the afternoon of the funeral – Thank you. To the staff at Anderson Funeral Home, especially William Briscoe, thank you for taking such good care of everything. To Dr. Dick and the wonderful, compassionate staff at Hospice Renfrew, a very special thank you for taking such good care of Arie, as well as the rest of us.

Forget me not, for I am right there, In the beat of your hearts, On the wing of your prayers. A joyous reunion is waiting for us! Continue to strive toward your goals and be brave, Know that my love didn’t stop at the grave. I am still with you through good times and bad, I share all the joys and the sorrows you’ve had. Feel my presence within your next breath, Ask for my help when you stumble and fall. Always remember my love is right there, In the beat of your hearts, On the wing of your prayers

A page in our book of memories is gently turned today. We can’t have old days back, When we were all together. But secret tears and loving thoughts, Will be with us forever

In memory of a wonderful Poppa. Why you had to leave us, we do not know, But our memories of you comfort us so. Thoughts of us, curled up safe on your knee, Come to us when we are picking apples from the tree. As we romp through the fields and catch a glimpse of a deer, We are reminded that you are always near.
