Judy Mulvihill the County of Renfrew Manager of Childcare Services says the County's standards for care are extremely high...

The County Of Renfrew is focusing on the joy of reading, sharing and nature, as they launch Book Trees in four municipalities across the county.
The idea behind the Book Tree's are to be able to share books freely across the county by taking books from a tree and returning them to another book tree or even putting your previously read books in the tree's for someone else to enjoy.
Judy Mulvihill the County of Renfrew Manager of Childcare Services says the concept, which originated in Germany seemed to fit this area perfectly...
Pembroke, Petawawa, Killaloe, and Arnprior will all be taking part and the books will be shared freely between the "Book Tree's" in those communities.
The tree's launched today will be put in place over the next month.
The OPP have released a photo of the possible suspects involved in the Eganville Bank Robbery.
Killaloe OPP say on the morning of May 12 a Red Dodge, single cab Pickup truck was found abandoned in the field of Serenity Bay Campground located just East of the town of Eganville on Highway 60.
This vehicle, which has business logos "The Woodcrafters" on its doors, had been reported stolen from the City of Ottawa on the 8th of May and they have officially released a photo of the stolen pick-up with two men inside the vehicle.
If anyone can identify any of the men in the photo or remembers seeing the vehicle on May 10th in Eganville between 4:30 and 6:30 PM is asked to call Killaloe OPP.
