No Renfrew schools are among the nearly 600 schools across Ontario that will be introduced to full-day, everyday kindergarten next fall. The Ministry of Education released the school names Tuesday. The first to be phased in, with more schools to be added

the following year, include Cobden District Public School, Beachburg Public School, McNab Public School and Palmer Rapids Public School. Renfrew County Catholic District School Board selections are Holy Name, St. John Bosco and St. Mary’s (Deep River).

Murphy’s in the race Jennifer Murphy of Murphy’s Auto Service in Renfrew is the first to enter the race for mayor in Bonnechere Valley Township

STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com Bonnechere Valley Township voters might not want to cop out of the municipal election in November. After all, it could be a race between a police officer’s daughter and a former police officer. Jennifer Murphy, who is the daughter of a Toronto policeman, is the first to register her candidacy for the mayoral race in Bonnechere Valley Township. She declared her candidacy Wednesday morning, Jan. 6 at the Bonnechere Valley municipal headquarters in Eganville, where incumbent Zig Mintha is also expected to file well before the Oct. 25, 2010 municipal election. The last time Mintha faced a female opponent, he lost the 2000 election to Arlene Felhaber of Sebastapol following local amalgamation. Mintha, a former Toronto police officer, won the 2003 election for mayor of Bonnechere Valley and was acclaimed to the position in 2006. Only one council member was not acclaimed in Bonnechere Valley in the last election, but that’s not the way it should be, says Murphy. She says voters should be given a choice. Having lived in the township since 2000 and spending summers in the area for as long as she can remember, Murphy, 40, says she’s looking forJennifer Murphy is hoping to get a leg or two up on the competition ward to going door to door to meet the electorate. “I am running in the municipal election because during the 2010 race for mayor in Bonnechere Valley Township.

needs to be a focus on the younger constituents,” she says, while sitting at Murphy’s Auto Service, which she and husband Dave own in Renfrew. It has been a tough year for the Murphys, whose business was relocated for nearly three months after a February fire. Otherwise, she says life has been good, after leaving the Toronto area where Dave was a Volvo master technician and she worked as controller for two Mississauga Volvo dealerships. She misses some of the city culture, and family members who live there. “I miss where I’m from,” she admits, “but I love where I live.” Now, Murphy, who lives just outside Eganville, on Foymount Road, says she wants the hub of Bonnechere Valley to look better than it does. More needs to be done to draw entrepreneurs to the town, and keep them there, she says. She says she’s not really opposed to incumbent Mintha’s approach, just that it’s time to create new priorities, plus there needs to be more than one candidate for the position. “I don’t think he’s doing that bad a job, but there are some deficits that need cleaning up − (there needs to be more attention on) the downtown core, youth and more tourism. “We’re in the middle of a touristy hub and it is not promoted enough. Realistically, we have some great places (businesses) downtown, but it’s just not inviting enough to tourists.” See MURPHY, Page 2

Renfrewlicious: tastful part of manor’s auditorium campaign Are you a local restaurant, food producer or caterer and want to show off your incredible dishes to thousands of patrons? Are you looking to beat the winter blahs and enjoy some incredible local food? Then mark Saturday, Jan. 30 on your calendar, as Renfrewlicious highlights the best of local eateries! Renfrewlicious runs from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., and everyone is invited! The Bonnechere Manor Foundation and the County of Renfrew are teaming up to bring this unique food exposition to the Renfrew Armouries. Similar to the highly successful Taste of the Valley events, Renfrewlicious will feature local producers and businesses. It’s also a fundraising event for the Bonnechere Manor Foundation as they continue their efforts to build an auditorium for the Bonnechere Manor resi-

The auditorium camdents and community. Bruce McIntyre, co- paign also includes Bonorganizer of the Taste nechere Manor’s first-ever of the Valley and Ren- telethon March 7. frewlicious, invites local businesses to take part in this inaugural event. “Just like Taste of the Valley, the new Renfrewlicious will help introduce our residents to the many local food options in the county.” “Renfrewlicious will be similar to a Food & Wine Show. “However, admission is free and there will be plenty of children’s activities, including an indoor play zone, musical entertainment, and outdoor activities, including snowshoeing and tobogganing at the fairgrounds!” Robyn Arseneau, community relations co-ordinator for Bonnechere Manor, says Renfrewlicious is also an opportunity to introduce local residents to many activities linked to the Bonnechere Manor Centre Auditorium Campaign.

The Bonnechere Manor Staff Association shows its support for the Manor Auditorium Campaign with a $1,000 cheque. From left are Bonnechere Manor Foundation chair Don Goulet, auditorium campaign chair Brian Yuke, community relations co-ordinator Robyn Arseneau and staff association chair Lori Boudreau.

Murphy in the race Continued from front What’s inviting is the atmosphere of the area, where she and her husband have made good friends and are involved in the community. He’s a firefighter, while she’s president of the Bonnechere Valley firefighters women’s auxiliary, the Pink Pagers, and a volunteer member of the Eganville and District Food Bank board of directors. “I’m excited about it,” says Dave of his wife’s candidacy. “I think it will generate some buzz.” Murphy is the daughter of Margaret and Larry Sinclair, whose family is from Osceola. One of her grandmothers was Jean O’Kane Sinclair, whose O’Kane homestead is still owned by the family. Murphy says she plans to knock on many voters’ doors during the campaign, but not until the spring. Her campaign manager is Gary Ducharme of Lake Clear.

Though admission is free to Renfrewlicious, sample food tickets will be on sale for one dollar to try the lo-

cal food. To register your food business, or for more information on Renfrewlicious,

“There was a definite need for a website that could act as a one-stop shop for those looking to find out more about Renfrew, and a site where residents of the area could contribute to the content.” As part of its commitment to Renfrew and area, the Renfrew Mercury and Renfrew Weekender (Metroland) has partnered with Megram to provide a weekly listing of all current and upcoming events that run in the papers to be posted online as well. The Valley Arts Council will also have a link on the website, as it launches its new online presence in the New Year – a website that is also being designed and donated by Megram as a community volunteer service. “The businesses, organizations and

people of this community have supported us over 20 years and we want to give something back,” said Megram president Robert Cross. “We have heard repeatedly over the past few years that this site was needed, and so we have answered the call. We invite you to visit the site and send us suggestions on what you would like to see posted.”

Workshop to promote ‘right relationships’ “Long before my people journeyed to this land, your people were here, and you received from your Elders an understanding of creation and of the Mystery that surrounds us all that was deep, and rich, and to be treasured.” Thus began the ‘Apology to First Nations People’ by the United Church of Canada in 1986. The apology continued: “We did not hear you when you shared your vision.” Jan. 28, the local community will have another chance to share and hear that vision. Omamiwinini Pimadjwowin (OP – The Algonquin Way Cultural Centre) is offering a workshop on traditional cultural teachings at Trinity-St. Andrew’s United Church in Renfrew. The workshop will feature Medicine Wheel Teachings, the Seven Grandfather Teachings, as well as bannock and singing. “It will be informative, but we also want people to have fun,” says museum curator Michele Gervais. The cultural centre’s mission is to revitalize, reintegrate, enhance and protect the cultural traditions, customs, practices, heritage, language, and arts of the Algonquin Nation. As part of this mission, they offer many educational programs teaching cul-

tural traditions to the community, schools and the public. The impetus to bring the OP workshop to Renfrew came from a small ecumenical group of people from the Renfrew and Arnprior area who undertook to give “legs” to the United Church’s apologies to aboriginal people. The first apology, in 1986, was a general one for the treatment of First Nations people by the European settlers. In 1996, a second apology was given for the United Church of Canada’s part in residential schools. In 2008 Prime Minister Harper apologized on behalf of Canada, and committed to implementing a Truth and Reconciliation Commission. “We want to be ready to hear the stories of residential school survivors at the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, and to do our part to address the terrible social conditions aboriginal people are presently living in Canada,” explained Beulah Wright, a group member who recently learned that she is Metis. “But we have also learned that the first step is to listen,” The workshop runs noon to 4 p.m. The cost is $12, of which $10 goes to support the cultural centre. To register, call 613625-1958 or 613-432-3295 by Jan. 21.

Editorial WINTER POSTCARD

Kindergarten questions Anticipation of a Renfrew elementary school being named to host full-day, everyweekday kindergarten next fall was not realized in a provincial government announcement Tuesday. Local parents may face the introduction of full-fledged staggered bells busing schedules in the fall. But savings on daycare bills will have to wait another year. Nearly 600 Ontario schools were named to start the program in September 2010, as part of a phase-in program scheduled to finish in five years. The nearest to Renfrew of the seven Renfrew County schools selected to start the program are McNab and Cobden District public schools. Roger Clarke, the public school board’s director of education, calls the program a great opportunity. For educators, yes, as each selected school receives extra funding for the extra teacher(s) and early childhood education graduate to be part of the class. But the jury remains out on whether the longer days, every weekday, will benefit fourand five-year-olds enough, or leave them too tired to be productive in and after school. We’ll know soon enough.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Power outages too many, too long

Jason Marshall, Managing Editor jason.marshall@metroland.com Lucy Hass, Editor lucy.hass@metroland.com John Carter, Associate Editor john.carter@metroland.com Steve Newman, Reporter steve.newman@metroland.com Peter Clark, Sports Reporter peter.clark@metroland.com Paul Burton, Advertising Manager paul.burton@metroland.com Stephanie Jamieson, Advertising Consultant stephanie.jamieson@metroland.com David Gallagher, Advertising Consultant david.gallagher@metroland.com

To the editor: In regards to your story in the Weekender (Dec. 31) on power outages, the recent power outages were many and far too long. I understand ice storms do cause power failures, with usually 1,000 residences in the Griffith-Denbigh area in the dark whenever the wind blows. Last Christmas had the very same scenario with many long outages.

The length and frequency can only be classed as very poor service. Hydro was off from Saturday at 7 a.m. Dec. 26 until Friday, Jan. 1 at 5:45 for a total of four times for approximately 57 hours. The first power outage on Saturday was 11.5 hours, 7 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. Luckily, the temperature wasn’t bitterly cold, then off Sunday for 17.5 hours from 1 a.m. until 6:30 p.m.

Again the temperature wasn’t that cold and the sun was shining. Monday night it was 13.5 hours, from 11 p.m. until 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday, with temperatures in the minus 20s. Then on Jan. 1, it was off for 14 hours, from 3:45 a.m. until 5:45 p.m. The hydro website indicated a tree had fallen on a main line. See WHENEVER, Page 5

CANDU sale a bad thing for Canadians: federal Liberal candidate To the editor: The Harper Conservative government has announced that it intends to sell the CANDU reactor division of AECL. From both an economic and research perspective, this is a terrible decision. It is bad for Canadians and it is especially bad for the people of Chalk River and the surrounding constituency of RenfrewNipissing-Pembroke. Canada has garnered an undisputed world-wide renown during its more

than 50 years in nuclear research and development. The CANDU reactor is one of Canada’s top engineering accomplishments. There are more than 30 Canadian-designed CANDU nuclear plants under construction or operating around the world. World demand for nuclear power is projected to increase by 40 per cent over the next 20 years. The Minister of Natural Resources Lisa Raitt has herself confirmed that 30,000 Cana-

dians work in the nuclear industry sector. And yet, rather than capitalize on this potential, rather than build upon Canadian know-how and experience, rather than secure the livelihoods of thousands of Canadians, rather than invest in an industry which is destined to expand, the Conservatives are selling out. With this short-sighted move, the Harper government is crippling our technological advantage in a key industry and endanger-

ing the economic future of thousands of Canadians. The government’s cynical inactivity in failing to respond to the nuclear isotope production crisis in Chalk River is now being trumped by their abandonment of the CANDU reactor division. This is another sell-out of hard-earned Canadian intellectual property. Christine Tabbert Federal Liberal candidate for RenfrewNipissing-Pembroke

Emon, Green pleased to swap committee posts

Whenever the wind blows Continued from Page 4 Close to 14 hours to cut and repair the line seemed a long time. Griffith can be classed as the land that Hydro forgot. It is at the end of the power line from the Kaladar-Mazinaw area. One downed power line in that Highway 41 corridor and GriffithDenbigh are in the dark. Even though Griffith is on the Madawaska River with numerous hydro projects, none really service the hamlet. No power lines follow the river from the Calabogie area and none runs up Highway 41 from the Dacre area, Either of these sources would put it on grid system as an alternative power source. Amazingly, the phone was seldom out during the power outages. With a laptop you could at least get some updated Hydro website data. No cell service is available locally. Luckily, Griffith has two gas stations and a restaurant with generators, so food and fuel were available. Luckily, I had a generator and a pellet stove, so I had light and heat. Unfortunately, not everyone had a generator and spent a very cold Christmas week. Hydro did do tree trimming along hydro lines this past year, but much more is required to prevent these outages.

Nature

Snow is not just snow Snow is not just snow to Native people who live in the north. Upsik is wind-blown pellets of snow, api is drifted snow, siqoq is snow that will blow over the surface, quli is snow that sticks to trees, mapsuk is snow that forms into overhanging drifts. Snow develops in clouds made up of billions of very small water droplets. The droplets combine with particles of salt and dust that are suspended in the air to form ice crystals. The type of crystals that form usually determines what type of snow will cover the ground. Powder snow is formed at very cold temperatures in clouds with low moisture content. Small sand-like crystals form very quickly and drift readily when pushed by the wind. In warmer clouds, there are plenty of moisture crystals with sharp, star-like projections that develop rather slowly. This allows them to grow. While falling, these crystals interlock, creating large flakes which float gently down. The flakes tend to build up on branches and other surfaces. Once they are on the ground they tend to stay in one place rather than drift around. One meteorologist estimated it takes one million snow crystals to cover a two-square-foot area to a depth of 10 inches (25.5 cm). Counting them could be tricky. Wind and temperature near the ground determine the type of snow we get. Snow falls evenly over the ground during a windless storm. High winds, combined with fine snow flakes, cause drifting. Very cold temperatures create dry, fluffy snow that drifts easily. Temperatures at or just below freezing create snow flakes that stick to objects. It is heavy and seldom drifts. Sleet is a form of snow crystal that has not made it. The crystals usually fall to the ground before the process is complete. Sleet is very close to being freezing

rain and will sometimes stick to objects as freezing rain does. Ice pellets are completely frozen balls of water, they bounce rather than stick. Snow flakes driven by the wind can form some interesting phenomenon like snow rollers, overhanging drifts and dunes. Snow rollers are very unusual. Perfect conditions are required: cold temperatures at night which harden the snow into a crust, a light powdery snowfall the following day which sticks to the crust, followed by winds of 37 to 50/mph. The high wind peels off the top layer of snow and rolls it into donut-shaped cylinders half a metre in diameter. Snow conditions demand

near zero. This is especially true of communities in the lee of the Great Lakes. A winter storm warning is issued when more than 10 inches (25 cm) of snow is expected in 24 hours. A blizzard warning is issued when within four hours: winds of 31/mph (50/kph) are reached, visibility is one kilometre or less, and wind chill values are -13 degrees Fahrenheit (-25 degrees Celsius) or lower are present.

on Petawawa National Forestry Institute property near Chalk River. The property is part of Canadian Forces Base Petawawa and closed to hunting. The two men, who said they were hunting for deer, were dressed in full camouflage clothing and carrying high-powered rifles. Justice of the Peace Barry Moran heard the case in Pembroke’s Ontario Court of Justice Dec. 21. The MNR reminds the public trespassing on CFB Petawawa is a dangerous and very serious offence.

7 Renfrew Weekender January 14 2010

Dewey Data from the Greater Madawaska Public Library had so much fun at the Preschool Storytyme. After our story and exercise time, we made pie-plate snowmen. Every Tuesday from 2-3, it’s kiddy time for wee folk (up to age five). Fortunately, the other patrons enjoy this time as well. Recently, a lady told me that on a previous visit she stopped her computer work to listen to the story. Since many of our families live in the bush or remote acreages, it is a time for young parents to meet each other and share parenting ideas. Good friendships have developed over the years.

Hearts

We are hoping to increase our volunteer base this spring. We need help with shelving, cataloguing and other activities. It is necessary to have a police screening since at times we have children inhouse. In 2009, our statistics grew and that was in part due to having two students over the summer. The services and options in the library are so different from our beginnings 31 years ago. We would like to be open more, especially in the evenings, to serve our students and day workers.

WEEKDAY SPECIALS Mondays: Tuesdays: Wednesdays:

1/2 Price Lift Tickets! $22 Lift Tickets! Calabogie Peaks Season Passholder "Bring a Friend Day"! Bring your season pass from another hill and ski for only $10! Seniors and College/University Students with ID ski for only $22!!

Specials are not in effect during Family Day (Feb. 15) or March Break (March 15 - 19). 359901

SKIPPY HALE Happy New Year! Things were hectic over Christmas, as usual, but I had the good fortune to take my holidays then and spend time with my hubby, family and wee Molly. She’ll be two this month and amazes us all with her constant chatter. The library needs your help. We are working on our policies again. In order to make sure that we are able to serve patrons who require special help, we ask that you self-identify. Do you need help to hear or see the computers? Do you use a scooter or walker? If you have any of these or other difficulties, please call or e-mail and let us know so we can determine where we need to make adjustments. Obviously, for many problems, the human touch is where it’s at. We can read or reach when you need it. Last week we

Few changes to county council committee membership Continued from Page 5 The bridges in question are County Road 65 in the Centennial Lake area and Constance Creek bridge on Ferguson Farm Road, which serves as a major travel link for local residents and the fire department. It remains to be seen if the Constance Creek bridge will remain a one-laner, but Emon would like two lanes. In a move to let the County of Renfrew council and staff do their part during the 2009 recession, Warden Don Rathwell reduced county councillors from three to two major committees and virtually dropped attendance at conferences. The committee move is being duplicated in 2010. However, it remains to be seen if the move to save $90,000 or so, by attending virtually no conferences in 2009, will be repeated this year. Reeve Green hopes not. And she expects to say so when the finance committee meets for the first time this year, on Jan. 18. MORE CONVENTIONS? “I think it’s imperative we start going back to conventions and support the groups that have been established to support us,” said Green of such important lobbying groups as AMO (the Association of Municipalities of Ontario) and OGRA (Ontario Good Roads Association). Conventions or no conventions, Green, who was an accountant by trade, says she’s very comfortable on the finance committee. That was also her other committee, back in 2008, when she also sat on finance, operations and social services. Green also remains the vice-chair for social services. At his own request, Laurentian Hills Mayor Vance Gutzman sits on no committees. His reason?

Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant and MPP John Yakabuski are inviting constituents to attend their annual New Year’s Levee this Sunday, Jan. 17. The levee is being held in Renfrew

for the third straight year. The MP and MPP will host the social gathering at the Armouries from 2 to 4 p.m. There will be a greeting line, refreshments and a few words of welcome from the hosts.

Renfrew firefighters wrap police tape around the area of the housing complex at 236 Hall Ave. where a fire was set Saturday. The area was deemed a crime scene after another suspicious fire in the building in five days. For the full story on the fire and the furor it’s caused at the housing project, see the Jan. 12 Renfrew Mercury. Mercury Weekender photo by JOHN CARTER

OPP joins forces with fire officials for investigation The Renfrew OPP, the Ontario Fire Marshal’s office, and the Renfrew Fire Department are investigating a series of fires at an apartment complex in Renfrew. Since Jan. 5 there have been four fires reported at 236 Hall Ave. in Renfrew. Two fires were started in a garbage

room, another in a flower pot in a common area and the fourth occurred when someone tried to burn the cushions on a chair in the lobby. Detective-Const. Lori Birmingham is leading the investigation. Anyone with information is asked to contact her at 613-432-3211.

OPP warn of scams, investigate thefts The Renfrew OPP detachment responded to 133 calls for service in the past week. SCAMS The OPP are warning the public to beware of scammers after a report of a telemarketer representing a cell phone company requested a social insurance number from a consumer. Never give out your social insurance number over the phone. Guard your personal identification closely. THEFT A snowblower was stolen from a home overnight on Jan. 2. The snowblower, described as a 2009 Yardworks 10 horsepower machine, was in a carport on Barnet Boulevard in Renfrew. One male was charged with theft after store security at No Frills stopped a male after he concealed items in his coat and left the store with no attempt to pay for the goods. A 52-year-old Cobden

man was arrested and charged with theft under $5,000. He was released on a promise to appear in court in Renfrew Feb 10. Const. Rich Shikatani investigated. LIQUOR LICENCE OFFENCE After observing an intoxicated male punch a vehicle, a Renfrew man, 36, was held in custody overnight after being arrested Jan. 9. He was released in the morning with a ticket for being intoxicated in a public place. IMPAIRED DRIVER About 2:50 a.m. Jan. 9 Const. Jeff Cassidy stopped a blue pickup truck on Opeongo Road in Admaston-Bromley for several driving infractions. More investigation revealed the male driver had been drinking. A quantity of marijuana and hashish was also seized from the male. He was arrested for impaired driving, and taken to the detachment for breathalyzer tests. As a

result, a 43-year-old Hyndford man was charged with impaired driving, driving over 80 mgs, possession of marijuana and possession of hashish. He was released on a promise to appear in court in Renfrew Feb. 10. DOMESTIC DISPUTES The Renfrew detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police responded to four domestic disputes during the past week. No criminal offences occurred. CRIMESTOPPERS If you have information on a crime, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or log on to www.valleytips.ca.

Life really can change in a moment BONNIE SCHARF St. James Lutherin Church In July, I told you about my granddaughter’s difficulty trying to enter Ghana for a month of volunteer work at an orphanage. At the time, I promised to let you know something of her experiences there. She was at a private orphanage – run by a childless couple who now care for 35 children – ages 3 to 16. They manage with some government help and the services of volunteers like Zoë and others, usually from Europe. Because she was from North America, they had prepared fries and hot dogs for her first meal – but she assured them she would be quite happy to eat the normal diet of rice and beans. Zoë lived on site, which meant she was full-time with the children. Many of the children are true orphans, but some have been given to the orphanage because their parents cannot provide for them. Some have no family history – not even a birthdate. Zoë was asked to teach in the local school. This included teaching religion. On the surface, Ghana is a

very religious country, newspaper banners and bus signs proclaim “Jesus is Lord” – a far cry from Canada. But she was shocked by the content of the lessons: “Does God love you? “ “Yes, when I am good.” “What happens if you are bad? “God will send me to hell.” She told the supervisor that she could not teach this – because her understanding of God’s love was not nearly so conditional or punitive. I guess her Lutheran roots were showing. She was also shocked by the corporal punishment all teachers were expected to inflict. Only the nursery class was exempt. Each teacher had a cane (a halfinch dowel) to apply to the hands for even minor offences. Serious discipline was meted out by the principal, who applied a sturdier stick to the buttocks or made the culprit (or should I say victim) kneel with bare knees on broken cement. On one occasion, the class of six- and seven-year-olds chanted “Cane her, cane her” when a classmate had taken another

child’s pencil and they wanted Zoë to apply the expected punishment. Zoë said it was like a blood sport. She simply had the pencil returned with an apology. Ironically, Zoë’s experiences upon leaving Ghana were even more traumatic than getting through immigration had been. She was due to leave on a Monday morning – that afternoon, she called home to say there had been an incident with the plane and her departure would be delayed two days. As the plane was speeding down the runway almost at the point of lift-off, it shuddered to a stop amid a cloud of smoke. A warning light had come on in the cockpit, indicating a problem in one of the engines, and the flaps were not responding.

The smoke was from the rubber tires burning as they skidded along the pavement. The pilot was able to abort the lift-off and keep the plane on the ground. No one was hurt – but the blown tires meant another plane had to be flown in from the USA. (There is only one flight a day from New York to Ghana). The airline put the passengers up for two nights – Zoë had to share a bed with two women she had never met before at the Kum-bayah Motel. Accra does not have western-style airport hotels! She spent the next day back at the orphanage – much to the joy of all. They were well aware of the incident – it was the big news of the day. They cried at seeing her safe, and in the evening, repeated their tearful farewell all over again.

HOSPITAL DONATIONS

The flight home on the Wednesday was uneventful and Zoë arrived in Ottawa 15 hours before she and I were scheduled to leave for our long-awaited holiday together – a river cruise in Germany. That may be another column. Is there a spiritual application to be drawn from this? I suppose one is – that just because a society appears to be Christian does not mean it will treat its most vulnerable citizens in a more loving way than our secular society does. And the other is a very personal reflection – life can change in a moment. This story could have had a very different ending. We are very thankful the safety system worked as it was designed, and that the pilot was well trained. Amen.

Gallant calls for homelessness proposals Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant is inviting communities and organizations to submit proposals to request funding through the (HPS) Outreach Communities Initiative for Ontario. “Usually, it is during times of tragedy, like a fire, do we think about people who are homeless, or who have become homeless,” said Gallant. “Our community has always been responsive to the needs of our fellow citizens. “While Renfrew-NipissingPembroke is not identified as a community with a significant problem with homelessness, if there is a problem, I need to know about it,” she added. “I invite interested individuals who feel there is a need, to step forward with a proposal.”

With three mothers in labour at Renfrew Victoria Hospital Jan. 5, it was anybody’s guess who would have the 2010 New Year’s baby. While parents Krysten Meyers and Kyle Walker with baby Lily snagged the title, the other babies were close behind. Candice and Ken Farquharson of Douglas welcomed Jacob soon after, and Tara and Jeff Taylor rounded out the day as they celebrated the arrival of Peighton. From left are Candice and Jacob, Krysten and Lily, and Tara and Peighton. For more on the New Year’s baby, see the story in the Jan. 12 edition of the Renfrew Mercury.

HOMELESSNESS STRATEGY The Homelessness Partnering Strategy is aimed at the prevention and reduction of homelessness across Canada. The

HPS adopts a “housing-first” approach which recognizes that housing stability is a precondition to enhancing the successful outcomes of other interventions. The HPS - Outreach Communities Initiative is for small and mid-sized cities and towns, rural and Northern communities in Ontario (outside of existing designated communities), and aims to fill gaps in addressing homelessness. HPS – Outreach Communities priorities for Ontario are prevention measures such as: • transitional, supportive and longer-term housing and services; • emergency facilities and urgent needs services; • improvement of community services and service delivery networks; • innovative approaches to community capacity building or community planning.

Coach Cal Smith leads the Renfrew Major Midget Timberwolves in a 100-lap skate during an International Silver Stick hockey tournament fundraiser on the outdoor ice at Ma-Te-Way Park Monday evening. The Wolves are competing at the Silver Stick in Sarnia this weekend. They are in a division with Listowel Cyclones, Aylmer Flames and Lambeth. Renfrew plays its first game Friday, then has two games scheduled for Saturday. The championship game is Sunday morning.

Wolves set for home stand PETER CLARK peter.clark@metroland.com The Renfrew Timberwolves enter this week’s Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League action in third place in the Valley Division. With 12 games remaining, the 13-17-1-and-2 Wolves are one point ahead of the fourthplace Almonte Thunder and

five points clear of the Pontiac Juniors in the chase to earn a playoff spot. The Wolves are also just four points behind the No. 2-two seed Arnprior Packers, as of last night’s meeting in Arnprior. The Renfrew club has three home games over the next week. The Wolves host the Perth Blue Wings Friday at 8 p.m., the

Metcalfe Jets Sunday at 7 p.m., and the Pontiac Juniors next Wednesday at 8 p.m. The Wolves handed over $219, the proceeds of last Friday night’s 50-50 draw, to the Major Midget Timberwolves in support of the Midget Wolves participation this weekend at the International Silver Stick hockey tournament in Sarnia.

Go green with the blue for RCI football TERRY EDWARDS Renfrew Collegiate Institute Each year, millions of used ink jet printer cartridges end up in landfill sites or get incinerated, contributing to pollution of the environment and global warming. Although numbers vary, it is estimated that over 80 per cent of all ink jet printer cartridges are not recycled. The plastics used can take hundreds of years (or longer) to biodegrade. The Renfrew Collegiate Raiders football teams have undertaken a project designed to help

support our environment while providing much-needed financial assistance for our program. If you or your business have used Canon, Hewlett Packard or Lexmark inkjet printer cartridges, they can be dropped off in the main office at RCI anytime during regular business hours. The cartridges that we collect are turned over to a company that refills the cartridges, with money provided to our program for each cartridge. This is a great opportunity to support a local school program without spending any additional money!

Each year, the RCI Raiders football program provides an unforgettable experience for about 80 of our local high school athletes. The reality is, however, that football is a very expensive program to maintain. Without the generous continued support of our alumni and the Renfrew and area community, our program would cease to exist. For more information, please contact Terry Edwards at (613) 432-4858 or edwardst@renfrew. edu.on.ca.

Members of the Major Midget Timberwolves relax as they complete their 100-lap skate Monday night on the outdoor ice at the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre.

PROVIDING SUNSHINE TO MANY

In other action leading to Provincial playdowns the Renfrew team of Jane Hunter, Pat Lee, Anne Windle and Marilynn Eady all played well and defeated the home Richmond team to win the A final by a score of 8-5. The other representative for the Best Western Championships will be the team of Barb Westgarth, Shelley Jamieson, Stephanie Langlois and Barb Roy, who won the B title over the same Richmond team. On the men’s side, our only representatives, the team of Paul Villard who skipped but threw lead rocks, second Ed Lepack, third Dave Eady and Brian Yolkowskie who threw last rocks, lost in the A but qualified for the Fairfield Marriot Championships by winning the B. On Wednesday, Jan. 6, both senior men and ladies continued play in Valley action. In the Autumn Leaves, the team of Yvonne Sklepowicz, Leith Collins, Jane Hunter and Pat Lee travelled to Killaloe and played well to defeat two local teams in comfortable fashion. In Lowe Cup action Renfrew teams travelled to Pembroke to play two Arnprior teams. The team of Rob Warren, Andy Humphreys, Ray Bird and Andy Sklepowicz won both their games handily, giving up only three ends in total. Greg Savicky, Don Lowe, Jim Bird and Dwight Hayward lost their first game but then came back strongly after lunch to win their second. This extends Renfrew’s lead over Arnprior at the top of the loop.

Senior Games Hal Kelly paces 5-k ski event Mid-Town win in Deep River

PETER CLARK peter.clark@metroland.com Hal Kelly notched a hat trick and Steve Radke and Paul Boudreau supplied singles to steer the Mid-Town Rug Rats past Tim Hortons 5-4 in the opening night of 2010 in the Gentlemen’s Hockey League. Scott Campbell had two goals for Tim Hortons, who also overcame a 4-0 halftime deficit. Doug Pilgrim (1G, 2A) and Travis Hiderman collected singles. Both goaltenders were busy. Jeremy Scobie made 21 saves in the win and Tim Hortons counterpart Harold Deacon 23 stops. Sterling’s No Frills stymied Finnigan’s 4-1 behind the two-goal efforts of Clayton Youmans and Jeremy Losee. Shawn Mulvagh was the lone Roadhouse sniper to solve Sterling’s goaltender Matt Wolfgram. Bryden Schaap was between the pipes for Finnigan’s.

ANDY SKLEPOWICZ Renfrew Curling Rink Most people like to ease into the New Year, but not here at the Renfrew Curling Club and especially this year. Curling action is hot and heavy while at the same time preparation for the Provincial Masters swings into high gear. Most clubs have a unique membership called a competitive membership. This is for players who belong to other clubs but wish to curl out of our club, usually in high end Provincial playdowns. This occurs as teams jockey to avoid early round meetings with a highly-ranked provincial team. This year we once again have former Renfrew curlers and former Provincial Schoolboy Champions Damian Villard and Matt St. Louis teaming up with Renfrew curler, and also a Junior champion, Derek Visutski and Damian’s usual lead Rob Graham to compete in the men’s playdowns. Damian’s team lost the A final to another team with Renfrew connections, the Steve Allen team who represented Arnprior, but is from Shawville. Steve and his brother and second, Rick, curled as juniors out of our club and brought home a Provincial championship. Damian then went on to qualify by winning the B over the Delaney rink that was also playing out of Renfrew. Unfortunately Damian’s team was not able to repeat as provincial men’s participants when they lost at the regionals.

Wrestlers outstanding in Ottawa tournament Nineteen members of the Renfrew Amateur Wrestling Club’s junior team (ages 9-13) made the journey to Ottawa for the sixth international National Capital Wrestling Festival Jan. 9. The team performed well with all members showing that the hard work and practice is paying off. At the end of the day, 17 athletes walked away with 19 medals. DOUBLE MEDAL WINNERS A special mention goes out to Chelsea Bernard and Lilyen Warren. These two girls wrestled in two divisions and won gold medals in both. Gold-medal winners were Athena Mitchell, Chelsea Bernard, Ida Yates-Lavery, Kaylee Senack and Lilyen Warren. Capturing silver were Theresa Hackbarth, Jacob Deschamps, Joseph Hanniman, Joseph St. Michael, Logan Picard, Samantha Daynes and Sydney Phillips. Alex Herbert, Ben McNulty,

Cody Miron, Nathan Plunkett and Samantha Smith earned bronze medals. Finishing just off the podium were Ben Stirling and Brendan Foster. Our young athletes now focus on helping their individual school teams as they have now started their program, to gear up for the Grant Lavallee Qualifier to be held at the AFAC Wing March 8. Our wrestlers will continue to work hard, preparing for their next upcoming local tournament, the Renfrew Rumble on Feb. 13. WRESTLING CLINIC Saturday’s wrestling clinic with five-time Olympian Doug Yeats runs from 10 a.m. to noon, and 1 to 3 p.m. at the Renfrew Recreation Centre. All wrestlers bantam-age and older from any club or school team are invited to attend the free clinic. E-mail or call Renfrew Amateur Wrestling Club coach Grant

Lavallee at 613-433-3138 if you wish to participate. Yeats represented Canada from 1975 to 1992, winning numerous medals in international competition. Yeats also competed at five consecutive Olympic Games, including Montreal, Los Angeles and Barcelona, and won gold at the Pan American Games. He has also managed and coached in the Olympics. Yeats was inducted into the Canadian Amateur Wrestling Hall of Fame in 1999, the Concordia University Sports Hall of Fame in 2001, and the Quebec Sports Hall of Fame in 2004. A National Coaching Certification Program course, Part A, for coaches will also be held at the same time as the wrestling clinic Jan. 16. The practical component will be conducted with Yeats. If interested in the course, contact Grant Lavallee for details. The cost of $100 includes the manual and DVD.

TOWNSHIP OF McNAB/BRAESIDE NOTICE TO ALL DOG OWNERS www.mcnabbraeside.com

The Corporation of the Town of Renfrew

2010 Dog Tags are now available at the following locations:

Once again, the Town of Renfrew will be conducting drinking water sampling and testing for lead to comply with Ontario Regulations. The town is seeking volunteer test sites in single family homes, multi-unit buildings, commercial properties, and industrial properties. Under the provincial legislation, the municipality must test the drinking water for lead at 40 private residences, 4 non-private residences, between December 15, 2009 and April 15, 2010. •

Tests would be performed at older residences suspected of having lead pipes or pipes with lead solder. • Homes built before the mid-1950s could have lead pipes. • Lead solder was used to join copper pipes and was phased out in the late 1980s; any new construction done after those years should not be affected by lead in the piping system.

Municipal Office - 2508 Russett Drive Country View Mini Mart - 68 Calabogie Road Robbins Confectionery Ltd. - Braeside White Lake General Store - White Lake The rates are: Before March 31st

one dog $12.00 2nd dog $20.00 3rd dog $30.00

After March 31st - Tags will only be available at the Township Office

Since the Town must access homes to test for the presence of lead, we are looking for volunteers to allow the Town of Renfrew staff access to their homes to collect samples. There will be NO charge to the resident for the testing of the lead sample. Each sample will total three litres in each location and the regulations obligate the town to advise tenants of the test results as soon as they are available. The higher risk individuals affected by lead that exceeds the standards are pregnant women, infants and children under the age of 6 years old. The Town will require permission of the property owner to take the samples. If you wish to be added to the list of potential test sites please contact the Development and Works Department, Municipal Garage, Darl Gaudette at 613-432-4147. 349113

After March 31st the following rates apply: one dog $24.00 2nd dog $40.00 3rd dog $60.00 In addition, fines will apply after March 31st. 2010 Kennel Licences must also be obtained by March 31, 2010.

Great swaps, great sleds STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com The 10th annual Old Snowmobile Show, hosted by the Eganville Snodrifters and the Ottawa Valley Old Sledheads, is aging rather nicely. Temperatures were crisp and the sky bright and clear as the show returned to Eganville to a solid reception Saturday. Nearly 70 snowmobiles were on display, including Callander, Ont., resident Allen Jewell’s 1953 Eliason K-12 that resembles more of a box than a machine on snow. Jewell’s Eliason won the pre-1970 original class. The Vanderbraaks of Kemptville and area were also showing, and loving being there. Matthew Vanderbraak, 11, was back participating in the show for the second straight year. “We have nine machines, but we’re showing two,” says his dad, Glenn. One of the machines they showed was the 1967 Bolens Diablo Rouge, which won the pre-1970 restored class. That machine was bought after Matthew saw the machine in Matane, Que., with its flat skis and dual-track engine. Their other machine at the show was a 1974 Alouette Super Brute. “What I like is that both were made in Pointe Claire, Quebec,” says Glenn. “As a young kid I had an Alouette Super

Brute,” he adds, recalling how his dad, Hank, ignited his love for snowmobiling and fixing the machines. His dad worked for the local school board, but his passion was working as a mechanic, says Glenn, now a certified GM mechanic. Daryl Fiebig of Renfrew also loves coming to the show. This time he was showing his 1969 Snowbug’s LuvBug model, and loving it, along with others. “People love the old machines,” says Fiebig. “It’s a youth thing. I’m into Snowcruisers because that’s what my dad bought for me when I was six years old.” Dave Radke, also of Renfrew, says he comes to the show to see the sleds, but, just as importantly, to pick up snowmobile parts. Now 46, Radke has been sledding since he was 10. “I come every year. It’s a great place to find parts. It gets better and better every year,” he says after carting purchased parts to his truck. Radke, who also visits similar shows in Ste-Eustache and Athens, says: “It’s a good one to come to. Vendor Gren (not Glen) Reddington of Bolton, Ont., agrees, while tending Moto Ski Man Richard Shantz’s parts display. “There’s always a lot of good stuff here, with nice snow sleds and good swaps.”

NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING: gets read. gets remembered. gets results With so many advertising mediums dividing the attention of potential customers, newspapers remain the most effective source for reaching consumers. Why? Simply put, newspapers reach more people, more often. Highly portable and highly visible, newspaper ads go with people and stay with them. That means your business is more likely to be on their minds when they’re in the market for related products or services. When it comes to spending your advertising dollars, make the choice that’s tried and true: newspaper advertising works harder for you.

PETER CLARK peter.clark@metroland.com It’s been a pretty good year in tournament play for Milano Pizza in the atom house hockey league. The Renfrew squad has participated in three tournaments so far during the 2009-10 season. They won the Cobden atom tournament, went 31-and-1 at the Bell Capital Cup Ottawa International Hockey Festival, and last week, won four games in Arnprior to reach the final in that event. Connery Campbell backstopped Milano’s to a 6-2 win over the Arnprior Vipers, 2-1 triumph over the Petawawa Panthers, a 3-1 stopping of the Stittsville Bombers and 5-2 detaining of the Stittsville Outlaws. Milano’s weekend winning streak came to a halt when losing a narrow 4-3 decision to the Char-Lan Rebels in the final. John Agnew and Cole Turcotte both potted a half dozen goals for the pizza shop. Eric McIntyre added two goals, while Nicholas Bovair, Elizabeth Scott, Charlie Strader, Flora Mellan and Jared Burnette chipped in with singles. Strader also had a two-assist game. The game versus Petawawa was won in dramatic fashion. Turcotte scored with 4:46 left to erase a 1-0 deficit, and McIntyre followed 41 seconds later to give Milano’s the 2-1 victory. PEEWEE HOUSE In Upper Ottawa Valley Peewee House League play, the Westmeath Warriors edged Farrell’s Installation 2-1 Monday night at the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre. Justin Visinski counted the lone goal for the Renfrew side, while Jordan Vandersleen almost stole the game for his team. The Farrell’s netminder made 24 saves as his team was outshot 26-3.

SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE, MPP VISIT LOCAL SCHOOLS

Continued from Page 11 About $1.3-million will be allocated for Outreach Communities in Ontario. All project activities should be completed by Dec. 31, 2010. “For some, the threat of homelessness is real,” said Gallant. “The fact that it has not been identified by senior levels of government as a local problem does not mean it does not exist. Interested applicants should call Gallant’s office in Pembroke for a copy of the application form. The application deadline is 4 p.m. Feb. 8. Applications will be accepted from registered charities, notfor-profit organizations, municipal governments, for-profit enterprises for non-profit activities, public health and educational institutions, band/tribal councils and other aboriginal organizations, and community groups sponsored by an incorporated body.

Speaker of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario Steve Peters and Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MPP John Yakabuski paid a visit to St. Joseph’s Catholic High School last month. From left are school principal Brennan Trainor, MPP Yakabuski, student council members Julia Rowat, Christine Helferty, Emily Troutman, Patty Enright, Victoria Slight, Miles Rowat, Kelly Slight, Natalie Walters and Audrey McMann, and Peters. The two MPPs also visited Renfrew Collegiate Institue that afternoon, Dec. 14, Yakabuski said he was pleased this unique opportunity had arisen. He also introduced Peters, who shared insights and experiences from his political career and fielded questions. Some of his messages were: buy local; exercise your right to refuse unsafe work; and vote, when eligible to do so. “If you don’t vote, don’t complain,” he said. For more, see Page 27.

Agriculture

County of Renfrew questioned on biomass RURAL ROUTES

MAYNARD VAN DER GALIEN

Most people are reluctant to answer questions from marketing researchers. Last spring a marketing research company called and invited me to a meeting in Renfrew. They wanted input from 10-12 participants regarding a product. We weren’t made aware of the topic or product we would be discussing, or who was paying the costs. We would be well paid for our time. We were. It sounded intriguing. Ten people from various backgrounds – including a university student, a homemaker and three retired teachers – met at the precise time and place

Keeping Well series

and they all wondered why they were picked for the project. I learned that I was there because of my agricultural knowledge. We were given a blank piece of paper and were asked to write down what we knew about biomass. Most of the participants had to guess. The papers were collected after we read out our answers. Ontario Power Generation (OPG) is exploring the feasibility of replacing the coal it currently burns for energy at the Atikokan, Nanticoke, Lambton and Thunder Bay power plants with forest and agricultural based biomass. Even though coal is the cheapest energy source in

making electricity, the government mandate to end burning of coal in Ontario sprung from serious environmental and health concerns associated with the fossil fuel. Biomass, on the other hand, is considered a carbon neutral alternative to coal. Agricultural residue and forest products are considered neutral because they absorb as much greenhouse gases while they are growing as they emit during combustion. By the end of 2014, Ontario’s four coal-fired plants will need to find a new purpose and biomass could be their new lease

on life. Starting in 2012, there will be a market for two million tonnes of biomass per year as Ontario moves away from coal. My answer to the question about biomass was right on. It’s a renewable energy that can be grown and harvested, such as switchgrass. I had been keeping an eye on a field of switchgrass that was growing between Arnprior and Pakenham. Fuel could also come from corn stover, straw, spoiled grains, and from wood pellets made from left-over forest products. For agricultural residue to be burned at any of the coal-fired power

plants, it needs to be condensed into pellet-form. One of the participants asked why people from the Renfrew area were picked and not city folks from Toronto and other major cities. We were told Renfrew County folks were picked because biomass can be produced here. We have both forest and agricultural land. We answered many questions and gave our opinions during the session. We didn’t get any handouts on biomass or any promotional material. We didn’t even get to keep the papers we wrote on. It was a very worthwhile evening.

As we enter 2010, RVH is preparing to face the most challenging financial times it has seen in many years. Because of these economic realities, changes are in store that will affect our community. For example, visitors to the hospital will have to pay for parking in the very near future. Patients who do not notify us in advance when they cannot honour scheduled appointments will be charged $25 for the lost time. Some prices in our cafeteria have been raised to help meet costs. Staff and managers are being asked to help eliminate unnecessary costs wherever possible. We know that there are a lot of questions about these measures and the reasons for them, and we hope that the following information will help you understand our situation. Q. We’ve been hearing for years that RVH is in good financial shape. Why are we suddenly being told there are problems? A. The current problems are related to Ontario’s significant economic challenge and the government’s ability to provide funding. Hospitals in Ontario are provided with an annual funding allotment to provide for our

services and expenses. We have been given every indication that the allotment for 20102011 will not keep pace with our costs. Q. Our community gives generously to the hospital. Doesn’t that money help pay the bills? A. Each year we receive approximately $350,000 through the RVH Foundation to purchase equipment and renew facilities at the hospital, such as the current $3 million CT project. We cannot use these donations to cover our ongoing operating costs. Q. Free parking is one of the few advantages we enjoy in rural Ontario. Why do we have to adopt a big-city solution here? A. RVH is one of very few hospitals in the province that has provided free parking to this point. The simple fact is that the money we pay to maintain our parking lots is money that could be spent on patient care. We expect paid parking to add approximately $250,000 to our hospital coffers each year. This is a significant source of revenue that we cannot afford to ignore.

Q. How will the new parking system work? A. Drivers will deposit their money in a machine and receive a parking pass to place on their windshield. Machines will be placed throughout the parking areas. Visitors to the non-hospital buildings such as the professional offices and the hospice will also pay for parking. Q. Staff are being paid to be at the hospital anyway, so why would I be charged a fee just because I miss an appointment? A. Wait times are significant for many of the services we provide, and appointments are scheduled to maximize the services of our equipment and staff. This change was actually suggested by staff who have experienced the frustration of “no-shows”. The $25 fee will be charged to patients who do not provide us with 24 working hours notice to cancel booked appointments. The fee will be $50 in the case of booked CT examinations.

Q. Will these measures be all that is required to keep RVH financially sound? A. Unfortunately, that is a question we cannot answer. The government has not yet been able to provide us with detailed planning targets for the 2010–11 fiscal year. We will continue to make quality health care for Renfrew our first priority, and we will work with our Local Health Integration Network and the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care to ensure that they are aware of our community’s needs and our determination to secure adequate funding to meet those needs. Q. How can the community help? A. We need your support. Please speak up on behalf of our hospital. Take advantage of opportunities to attend public meetings and share your thoughts about the importance of local health care. Use our hospital responsibly to help us keep our costs in line. Avoid unnecessary visits to the emergency department—your doctor or a community health clinic should be your first option for non-emergency medical advice. And please continue to make RVH your charity of choice. The support of our community speaks volumes about the importance of what we do!

Thank you for your understanding and ongoing support in these challenging times.

CP Rail has 60 days to decide if train service will be restored By KATIE MULLIGAN kate.mulligan@metroland.com It has been over nine months since the tracks went quiet in Carleton Place, Almonte and surrounding areas. A mid-December announcement will make it stay that way. On Dec. 18, Canadian Pacific Rail announced the termination its lease of the Ottawa Valley Railway, which runs from Smiths Falls to Campspur, Ont., near Petawawa. “This reflects a drastic drop in rail traffic over the Ottawa Valley Rail,” said Michael LoVecchio, senior manager of media relations with Canadian Pacific Rail. “We have consolidated traffic onto our main lines; (trains heading) from Sudbury to Montreal run south to Toronto, then east to Montreal.” All Canadian Pacific traffic will be routed along the main line, said LoVecchio. It will still route through Smiths Falls, but via Toronto. This, he added, does not mean anything in terms of rail traffic. “All traffic will travel on Canadian Pacific’s main line through Smiths Falls,” he said.

“Instead of routing some traffic over the OVR, all traffic from Sudbury to Montreal will route via Toronto through Smiths Falls.” Prior to this agreement, Canadian Pacific had the option of routing some traffic through OVR. This option, however, has been terminated. LoVecchio said the decision allows Canadian Pacific to improve its customer base and core network, which runs from Sudbury to Toronto to Smiths Falls to Montreal. “This agreement is a recognition of something that was already a fact,” he added. On Tuesday, Jan. 5, Carleton Place town staff met with CP Rail representatives to discuss what is happening and what it means in the near and distant future. Under the Canada Transportation Act, CP Rail has 60 days to decide if train service will be restored on the line. During that period, the lines will be maintained and operated between Sudbury and Mattawa, Ont., Mattawa and Temiscaming, Que., Mattawa and Camspur. LoVecchio said his organiza-

tion has been meeting with communities and customers “up and down the line,” from Smiths Falls to Petawawa. “That line really hasn’t had any traffic to speak of over the last year,” he said. Once the initial 60 days has passed, CP Rail is required to offer the line for sale to another railroad or someone who could continue rail operations. If no interest is expressed from any railroad operators, the next obligation is to offer it for sale for continued operations to all three levels of government. If none of the levels express any interest, the rail line would be considered discontinued under the act. “We are in the very preliminary stages,” said LoVecchio. “We think the priority right now is to meet directly with the stake holders who are impacted, including councils.” CP Rail representatives met with Carleton Place town staff Jan. 5. After this meeting, Dave Young, Carleton Place director of public works said the rails could be considered discontinued in as little as 18 months and that the rails could be torn up.

“I don’t think we should allow that line to be torn up,” said Mayor Paul Dulmage. “If we don’t keep the rail as it is now, once it’s gone, it’s gone,” said Coun. Gerald Kirby. Dulmage suggested Carleton Place send out a letter to all affected municipalities along the line to express concerns locally and see if anyone else would have an interest in pursuing the issue as a group. Chief administrative officer Paul Knowles asked council if the town’s interest was to purchase the line. “If we do nothing, it’s going to go, that’s clear,” said Dulmage. “If we actually contact these people, we may find (someone else) does have an interest in sending tourists this way and we may have an interest in sending some that way.” Dulmage said the Wakefield Train is an example of an opportunity to exchange tourists with another area. LoVecchio said if any interest is expressed by municipalities, the “clock stops” to give each side time to discuss a potential agreement. LoVecchio said a decision

would be made when the time comes about the future of the metal train tracks. Normal practice would be to salvage the rail, ties, spikes and other pieces. “That cuts us off completely from train traffic,” said Coun. Jerry Flynn. “I can’t believe that in this day and age they’d tear tracks up.” Coun. Dennis Burn suggested council should look at more than just saving the line. If the process continues and the tracks are torn up, other options should be considered ahead of time to be prepared. Burn said it would be an issue if the line was divided up into separate private properties, which would make creating a trail through the land extremely difficult. “Dennis’ idea is not far fetched,” said Dulmage. “Trails are a big thing with the provincial government right now… This could become some sort of tourist initiative.” Two other stories on the CP railroad situation, with extensive comments from Renfrew County officials, appear in the Jan. 12 edition of the Renfrew Mercury.

Speaker of the House, local MPP visit St. Joe’s On Monday, Dec. 14, the Speaker of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario Steve Peters, and RenfrewNipissing-Pembroke MPP John Yakabuski came to St. Joseph’s Catholic High School to speak to our Grade 10 and 12 students. The two spoke about what they do and the different things they like about their respective jobs. Mr. Peters was elected as MPP for Elgin-Middlesex-London and then elected by his fellow MPPs in the provincial legislature to serve as speaker. For anyone who doesn’t know, the Speaker of the Legislative Assembly is known as the servant of the House and has to ensure that rules are followed within the legislative chamber. The speaker also told us he enjoys travelling around our province to

JAGUAR JOURNAL

Victoria Slight meet new people and getting to know more about our vast province. In his role as our MPP, Mr. Yakabuski is to debate ideas he feels should or shouldn’t become a law and also, work to make changes to bills and current laws. He is frequently seen with his constituents

in the community, at such events as parades and high school sporting events. On behalf of the SJHS community, we would like to thank Mr. Peters and Mr. Yakabuski for taking time out of their busy schedules to come and talk to us about their role in the provincial government. As a wrap-up of December news, St. Joe’s held its annual Christmas toy and food drive under the supervision of educational assistant Nancy Vessel. Students and staff were encouraged to bring in new or gently used stuffed animals, books, games or other toys and non-perishable food items. Our school collected a total of 14 boxes of toys and four boxes of food. These toys and food were given to the Salvation Army for families in need.

Nova Networks engineer networking in familiar territory STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com The MacFarlane name is hardly new to the Renfrew area, “The new Valley, I guess you’d could call it,” says Renfrew native Ian MacFarlane, who joined NOVA Networks last fall and is now servicing clients in his virtual back yard. A resident of Jeffrey’s Lake for 15 years, the certified network engineer and certified electronics technician joined the information technology infrastructure and managed-services company last fall. NOVA Networks, with about 140 employees, has offices in Ottawa, Montreal, Toronto and Calgary. Its motto is: The power

ing relationships with past clients and meeting new ones.” Past clients have included local school boards, healthcare agencies, Northern Credit Union, Haley Industries and the Town of Arnprior, for which he designed a five-year technology system. With more than 5,000 hours of technical consulting experience, he has installed and supported more than 100 network systems in the Ottawa Valley. Whatever the companies, they need expertise to maintain their daily computer-based operations, says MacFarlane. Viruses and their potential impact on operating systems is one of the biggest concerns for

to serve you and the service to empower you. Its senior account manager, and Renfrew County point man, is MacFarlane. In 2002, as owner of the Renfrew-based Tenetech Computer Systems, he joined MicroAge, Canada’s largest network of computer-solution providers. In 2005, he became the 3-D modelling software account manager for Siemen’s, home to 250,000 employees. From 1987 to 2005, he owned Renfrew-based Tenetech Computer Systems, a provider of information technology products and services. After joining NOVA Networks last fall, MacFarlane says he’s “looking forward to re-establish-

many companies, he points out. “They’re very hard to detect unless you have the latest tools installed on your work station, and they (the viruses) can shoot you right down. “So it’s helpful to have a managed system, such as the one we provide.” NOVA Networks has 50 engineers logged in to solve IT issues remotely. “It’s a very cost-effective way to run an IT department,” says MacFarlane. With more than 20 years in information technology, the Jeffrey’s Lake resident says he brings “a lot of experience to the table. See NOVA, Page 30

address development issues within the claim area. This will allow our negotiating teams to focus on resolving the claim. We look forward to continuing to work together towards an agreement that will provide economic certainty for the Algonquin people and their neighbours throughout eastern Ontario.” “On behalf of the Algonquins of Ontario, we thank both the governments of Canada and Ontario for their respective commitments and financial support that have allowed us to establish this office,” said Chief Kirby Whiteduck of the Algonquins of Pikwakànagàn First Nation, speaking on behalf of the First Nation and the nine other Ontario Algonquin communities. “Our consultation efforts will continue to be respectful of the many non Algonquins who live, work and make their homes in our Traditional Territory. We believe that Algonquins can live,

work and enjoy living together with our non-Algonquin neighbors through mutual respect and open dialogue.” While the negotiations continue to settle the outstanding land claim, the Algonquins have entered into an agreement with the governments of Canada and Ontario on consultation about activities or projects in the Traditional Territory. These consultations are taking place away from the land claim negotiation table and are led by elected representatives of the Algonquins working with the affected government departments, ministries or agencies. The Algonquins of Ontario have established the consultation office in Pembroke to co-ordinate that work which now includes more than 200 files. The office will also support the Algonquins’ work with local municipalities and businesses. The new office will allow governments, including Canada and Ontario as well

Echo echo Productions is excited to bring its second theatre piece to Burnstown. Dear Mrs. Martin, written by Kate Aspengren, is sure to tickle all the senses. When Barbara Martin’s (Heather Sagmeister) cleaning lady Gloria (Chris Kyte) begins leaving revealing letters about her quirky family and frequent visits to her psychic, Barbara is enticed to write back and expose her own life in return. When Barbara’s husband dies, it is Gloria’s letters that help her, and the frequent phone messages from fellow socialite, Hilary (Steph McGregor), that make her re-examine who her true friends are. Without ever being in the same room these two women from opposite worlds find companionship and understanding. Dear Mrs. Martin is a play about family, friendship, loss and hope. Dear Mrs. Martin can be seen Jan. 21-23 at 8 p.m. and Jan. 23 and 24 at 2 p.m. at Neat Coffee Shop. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at Neat (613-433-3819). For more information, e-mail echo_echo_prod@hotmail.com

The moment that you died, Our hearts split in two, T he one side filled with memories, The other died with you. We often lay awake at night, When the world is fast asleep, And take a walk down memory lane, With tears upon our cheeks. Remembering you is easy, We do it every day. But missing you is a heartache, That never goes away. We hold you tightly within our hearts, And there you will remain, Life has gone on without you, But it will never be the same. For those who still have their wife, mom and Nana, Treat her with tender care, You will never know the emptiness, As when you turn and she is not there. Lovingly remembered, Your family.

KUBISHESKI, Aileen

Sister Regina passed away peacefully on Monday, January 4, 2010 at The Sisters of St. Joseph Motherhouse in the company of her Sisters and her nephew Patrick Houlihan by her side. She was in the 82nd year of her religious life. She was born in Chapeau, Quebec, a daughter of the late Mary Gertrude (O’Hare) and Thaddeus Nephin. Left to celebrate with joy her life among us are her Sisters in the Congregation, and her much loved nieces and nephews and their families. She is predeceased by her brothers Francis and Jean Baptiste and Sisters Cecilia (James Moxan), Anne and Christina (Kit) (Joseph Houlihan). Sr. Regina began her 42-year teaching career in Douglas at St. Michael’s School, followed by Renfrew, Mount St. Patrick, Barry’s Bay, and Petawawa. Many times during her teaching postings, she also served as the Superior of the convent(s) where she resided. She always gave extra time and energy to upgrading her skills by taking courses to specialize her career. For five years, she accepted the challenge of preparing students to enter the teaching profession at the Teacher’s College in Chapeau. She was quoted as saying ‘her main ministry was teaching English, French, History and Latin’, but in addition to this she did choir work, church work, trained altar servers and was Director of the Theresians of Pembroke. She will be long remembered for her expert knowledge in grammar, her ability to converse in an informative and engaging manner and her genuine interest and caring nature. She was most grateful for her call to Religious Life and she had a special devotion to Little Thérèse of the Child Jesus. Visitation at St. Joseph’s Motherhouse, Pembroke took place on Wednesday, January 6th, starting at 4:00 p.m. with a prayer service at 7:00 p.m. The funeral mass was celebrated on Thursday, January 7th at 10:30 a.m. at the Sisters of St. Joseph Motherhouse. Interment at St. Columba’s Cemetery, Pembroke. Condolences can be sent to csjadmin@ csjpembroke.ca Arrangements by the MURPHY FUNERAL HOME, Pembroke. CL18009

Any way to stop smoking is good! National Non-Smoking Week takes place from January 17 to 23 and the theme this year is “Quitting is contagious! Pass it on”. During this event, the entire country will be mobilized in a collective effort to create a tobacco-free present and future. The campaign aims to make Canadians aware that: cigarettes have been the principal cause of death for many decades; fires started by cigarettes or cigarette-related items are avoidable; if people wish to smoke at all costs, that they adopt safer

habits and are more respectful of non-smokers. The cigarette is also a major factor in children’s health: 7.3% of children, aged 10 or younger, are exposed to second-hand smoke. Children suffer from the harmful effects of second-hand smoke more than adults because their lungs are still not fully developed. It is also more difficult for them to distance themselves from the source of the smoke.

During their investigation that led to the search warrant, police say they determined hydro had been bypassed to run the marijuana operation that filled the house. The man has been charged with production of marijuana over three kilograms, possession of marijuana and theft of electricity. The Ontario fire marshal’s office and McNabBraeside Fire Department members conducted a fire safety inspection of the house. The search was a joint forces operation with the OPP Drug Enforcement Unit and the Arnprior and Renfrew OPP detachments. Renfrew OPP community services officer Const. Janice Sawbridge said it is “fairly unusual (in this area) to have a whole house taken over as a grow operation.”

Ontario Provincial Police report finding about 1,400 pot plants growing in the home, which is just off the corner of Campbell Drive. Police estimate the potential street value of the marijuana as more than $1.4 million. A male, who appears to be a tenant of the home, was taken into custody and later charged with several offenses. A joint police drug squad descended on the home at 11 p.m. Jan. 5 armed with a Controlled Drugs and Substance Act search warrant. OPP report police officers seized $13,400 in cash as well as the marijuana plants, which were in various stages of growth.

In buildings such as apartment blocks, second-hand smoke infiltrates the various electrical, plumbing and air ducts as well as through the doors and windows of a neighbour who smokes. A study has shown that 36% of apartment block residents are bothered by the secondhand smoke which filters into their apartment.
