The Barrhaven Legion has created a trust fund in memory of Eric Leighton, the Barrhaven teen who died of injuries sustained in a shop class explosion at Mother Teresa Catholic High School in May. “Our branch was approached by a member to work with the Leighton family to help them financially through this very difficult period,” founding Barrhaven Legion president Ray Desjardins said in a release. “Our members were quick to agree to support the family through donations and a number of fundraising events.” See LEGION, page 4

Crown seeks 5 years in Jack Tobin case NEVIL HUNT nevil.hunt@metroland.com

The day after hearing how he had permanently scarred the family of Alex Zolpis, Jack Tobin stood before his victim’s parents, sister and girlfriend. Tobin has pleaded guilty to impaired driving causing death and is facing a jail sentence after his friend, Zolpis, 24, died on the rooftop level of

a downtown Ottawa parking garage on Dec. 24, 2010. The Crown is seeking a five-year prison sentence, while Tobin’s lawyer has suggested 18 to 30 months. Tobin remains out on bail and under strict conditions until he is sentenced on Aug. 31. Tobin, 24, is a Manotick resident and the son of former Newfoundland premier Brian Tobin. See VICTIM, page 3

PAST RECORD The court heard on Aug. 4 that Jack Tobin allegedly drove while drunk on at least four other occasions, and that he was arrested less than two years ago in Manotick on suspicion of impaired driving, but was not charged. Tobin’s defence lawyer, Norm Boxall, provided details of the evening that Zolpis was killed. He said Tobin, Zolpis and friends were out for the evening drinking in downtown Ottawa. The group returned to Tobin’s truck – parked in a multi-level garage – with the intention of drinking more alcohol and listening to music. They drank some more and then Tobin drove the truck and six passengers to the roof level of the garage. There he twice spun the truck around on the slippery surface. At some point, the door beside Zolpis opened and he fell out and was run over by the truck. Boxall admitted his client had been “foolish,” but later asked the judge to consider some factors before sentencing, including that no one else was on the

Edward Moore, who attended Dalhousie University in Halifax at the same time as Tobin, provided a written statement claiming Tobin drove while drunk sorry on four occasions. Moore mentioned at shamed.” least two trips to a Halifax bar in 2006 when Tobin consumed about six Jack Tobin beers in less than four hours and then drove home. Moore’s statement also said he travelled to Newfoundland in 2008 with Tobin. During that trip, Moore said Tobin drove after drinking on two occasions. In one case, Moore said another friend on the trip climbed on top of the SUV Tobin was driving. The friend on the roof was thrown to the ground when Tobin spun the car around in a parking lot. Boxall, responded to the contents of Moore’s letter, saying it was rare that Tobin drove to the Halifax bar mentioned by Moore, and that Tobin makes no admission that he ever drove from there while drunk. Regarding the Newfoundland trip, Boxall said there were no injuries and that the situation may have been better described as someone standing on the back bumper while holding the roof rack. The Crown also mentioned a local incident. On Aug. 29, 2009, Tobin was pulled over by an Ottawa police officer in Manotick at 3:51 a.m. and admitted to spinning the tires of his Toyota pickup truck. He also admitted to drinking alcohol earlier in the evening. When he failed a sobriety test, Tobin was arrested and driven to a police station in Kanata. There he provided two breath samples; standard practice for a suspected impaired driving case. The first sample was taken at 5:37 a.m. and

Fit Minds focus on brain interaction JESSICA CUNHA jessica.cunha@metroland.com

A local company that focuses on the aging brain is hosting a presentation on how to help Alzheimer’s and dementia patients at the Valley Stream Manor in Nepean on Aug. 22. Fit Minds is hosting one-hour event, which will focus on how cognitive interaction can help those suffering from forms of dementia, said Paul de GrandprĂŠ, chief operating officer of Fit Minds. “Cognitive interaction is one of the things that really helps,â€? he said. “This is very straightforward and non-evasive. There is no chance for negative side effects from it.â€? The event is open to everyone, he said, including family and professional caregivers for those with Alzheimer’s or dementia.

He said there will be examples of tools and activities people can use to help improve brain function. Some include music, critical thinking, visual spatial orientation and memory. One example is Picasso art cards. “They’re both beautiful and interesting and serve as a discussion point, memory game or patterning,â€? said de GrandprĂŠ, adding items around the house can be used in such activities. “The approach of having out of the box, easy to use activities that stimulate the areas of cognition are the key areas we’re keen on communicating to people,â€? he said. “The main goal here is just to get the message out that this is something that people can do.â€? The free presentation will take place at Valley Stream Manor on Aug. 22, at 7 p.m.

On August 3, 2011, Hubert Belisle, operating as H.B. Expert Pro-Renovations in Renfrew, Ont., pleaded guilty to engaging in an unfair practice under Ontario’s Consumer Protection Act and was sentenced to 90 days in jail and two years probation.. In March 2009, Belisle approached an 85-year-old homeowner in Ottawa and sold him on various repairs and improvements to his house. Belisle estimated the work would cost $31,000 and requested and received a deposit of $15,000. Over the next few months Belisle talked the homeowner into several other re-

pairs and received more than $18,000 in additional fees – even though the original work was not completed. The homeowner, a Second World War veteran and widower, has lived in the house since 1960 when he and his wife designed and built it. In addition to the jail and probation, Belisle was sentenced to a restitution order of $34,591. Belisle will return to court in January 2012 to face additional charges from different complainants.

Dry weather playing havoc with area crops EMMA JACKSON emma.jackson@metroland.com

It’s no hay day in southern Ottawa this summer as farmers deal with drought-like conditions while they attempt to harvest enough hay, corn and soybeans to make it through the season. A very wet spring morphed into an incredibly dry summer, leaving hay especially thirsting for a rainfall and leaving corn and soybean crops bone dry at a critical time of their development. “August is when corn builds the cob, so if you’ve got a moisture problem it’s going to affect the yield,” explained Brent Taylor, president of the Ottawa Federation of Agriculture. Soybeans are in a similar situation, as August is when the pods are filled. “You can see the corn plants already experiencing the moisture stress. The lower leaves are already brown, so we know they’re under drought stress.” For hay farmers, the first cut harvest around June 1 was excellent after such a wet spring. However, second hay cuts were dismally short and the third cut is looking even worse, said Oskar

Dry, brown stalks are one clue that area cornfields aren’t getting enough rain. Farmers who grow soybeans and hay are also reporting the summer weather hasn’t been good for their crops. Zollinger, a Winchester farmer who contracts his baling and cutting machines to area farmers to help harvest their hay. “We were very pleased with the first cut, but farmers are extremely disappointed with the second cut and the same with the third. We got barely an inch of rain for the second cut and

just about an inch for the third,” he said. Where a farmer can usually harvest two and a half large square bales out of an acre on the second cut, some farmers in the Winchester and Kemptville areas were only able to scrape together a fraction of that, Zollinger said.

“I am having them have half a bale per acre, and that’s a real disappointment,” he said. Even more frustrating for south Ottawa farmers is that this is not a widespread phenomenon. In Westport just two hours south-west of the city, farmers have enjoyed much more rain, and as a result are baling in the

profits. Zollinger said he expects the price of hay to skyrocket this summer as cattle and dairy farmers get ready for the winter. “Dairy farmers are in desperate need of very good hay to make it through the winter 2011. Hay is going to be extremely expensive. It’s already pretty high.” A large bale, which can hold about 18 small bales, sells at its cheapest for about $35, Zollinger said. Currently they are selling for $45 or $50, and he thinks it’s on its way up. Taylor, however, was hesitant to proclaim rising hay prices, because June’s harvest was so strong. “I don’t think so, because of the fact that there is a lot of first cut hay. We had lots of moisture early in the season and so the first cut was heavy,” he said. If the prices do go up, the news is not as welcome as you might expect for those selling hay. “The price is high but you don’t have the volume. You should have two or three times more,” Zollinger said. The Weather Network’s 14-day trend is only forecasting sporadic showers over the next few weeks.

487362-32-11

A man was taken to hospital with a leg injury after being pinned inside a backhoe in Fallowfield village on Aug. 8. The incident happened at Union Auto Parts, on Richmond Road just north of Fallowfield Road, shortly after 10:30 a.m., when the man rolled down a three-metre hill into some trees while in the cab of his backhoe. The backhoe was resting on a broken tree when firefighters arrived. Firefighters had to extricate the man inside the backhoe and free his leg. In total, 32 firefighters and 14 fire trucks arrived on scene to assist with the rescue.

Is OC ready for bus route changes

I

t’s easy to be lulled into a false sense of security by weekends at the cottage, sun-filled days and repeated reassurances that 93 per cent of trips on OC Transpo won’t be changing after the summer vacation. With riders’ rage over the route “optimization” behind us, chatter about the topic has subsided, leaving us to wonder: is Ottawa ready? When riders head to their bus stops on Sept. 4, will they have ingrained the knowledge of their new routes, helpfully posted at transit stops last week? Or will they be woefully unprepared to get from Point A to Point B? What about bus drivers? They are busy learning the new routes, but we wonder if they can prepare themselves for the onslaught of rider complaints that will inevitably hit them. With a slew of new stops to contend with, the Next Stop Announcement System’s newly glitchfree stop calls won’t last for long. What the city means when it says 93 per cent of trips won’t be affected is that you will still be able to take the bus to and from 93 per cent of the places that you can today.

But where your stop is located, how often the bus comes and at which times, where you need to transfer and how long it will take – those things will likely be changing. It’s enough to make you fear the grouchy, frustrated atmosphere that seems poised to envelop local buses. The optimization is not without improvements. The major obvious benefit is the cost saving: $22 million by next year. Some routes will get improved or more frequent service. And it can’t hurt to simplify the city’s overly complex transit system. (Have you ever tried to give transit directions to people unfamiliar with the city and transit system?) The changes are a means to an end, of course. With a level of service that outstrips most North American cities, something needed to be done differently before OC Transpo bankrupted the city. But before we can appreciate a sustainable and financially stable transit system, we will have to get through these growing (or shrinking) pains.

The skinny on gluten

F

latulence has no place in a marriage, or so a recently wedded friend tells me. She came to visit from out of town. Like so many women before her, she bemoaned falling victim to the post-honeymoon, early-thirties weight gain that afflicts so many of us. This is a woman who attends twice-weekly boot camp, religiously goes to the gym, and clocks up to 17,000-steps a day at work on her pedometer. If she’s bloated and farting in bed, what hope is there for the rest of us? As it turns out, there is hope. Working closely with a physical trainer and dietician in June, my friend’s long-held suspicion that she may have a wheat sensitivity has been confirmed. Within weeks of eliminating wheat and other products containing gluten from her diet, she has passed wind significantly less often and, more importantly, shed a few pounds. “About 15-20 per cent of my clients have a wheat or gluten sensitivity,” says Kathy Smart, an Ottawa-based nutritional consultant. “Even if you’re not celiac – which is a whole different thing – ingesting gluten may cause digestion issues, skin issues, fatigue, and it can affect metabolism.” Smart, who advises a number of OtBarrhaven•Ottawa South

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse tawa organizations, including local grocery chain Farm Boy, on how to prepare food for specialized diets, says the recognition of gluten sensitivity has started to enter the mainstream consciousness. A certified holistic teaching chef, Smart is releasing her fourth cookbook this month, with over 60 healthy recipes, all of them gluten-free. She’s also launching Ottawa’s first gluten-free cooking show on Rogers in October. “Within the last five years gluten sensitivity has become a lot more prominent,” says Smart. “More celebrities have come out in support of a glutenfree diet, and medical doctors are seeing patients who’ve been complaining of various problems for 20 years feel better when they eliminate gluten from their diets.”

Besides the metabolic drag that gluten sensitivity can trigger, focusing on fruits and vegetables, lean proteins and whole grains like rice as part of a gluten-free diet also make it easier to lose weight, if that’s your goal. A lot of processed foods, including instant gravies, soya sauce and certain spice blends contain gluten, so it’s best to read labels as you reach for these seemingly harmless items. “It’s really about getting back to food in its natural state,” explains Smart. “We were never really meant to eat cookies, cakes and breads to that extent in the first place.” If you can’t see giving up baked treats anytime soon, it’s worth noting that a number of gluten-free flours and alternatives are showing up amidst traditional products on grocery shelves. But baker beware: Cooking with gluten-free flour is a bit of a science. I found out the hard way when my friend was here. Eager to be a good host, I had picked up a bag of all-purpose gluten-free flour, determined to make pancakes from scratch. The end product was flat and dry – anything but appetizing – not to mention the fact that the kids required a steak knife to get through the quarter-inch round. “You really can’t just substitute one

Also, try not to let the products sit out on the counter for too long once they come out of the oven. Trap it in a bag to keep it moist.” Going gluten-free isn’t necessary for everyone, but if you’ve had underlying metabolic or health issues – even inexplicable fatigue – it may be worth a go. “There’s really nothing to lose by trying it,” says Smart.

Pressed flowers artist blossoms on world stage EMMA JACKSON emma.jackson@metroland.com

Conrad Stoltz always thought he’d be a musical conductor. He left South Africa to study music in England, and took a conducting degree in Switzerland. He started an orchestra in South Africa, and was invited to lead another in Australia. That’s where he met his wife, and she’s the reason he settled in Canada in 1963. But once married, he had bills to pay and children to feed. Music was put on the backburner. For years, Stoltz ran LoweMartin Printing Company on Hunt Club Road, travelling when he could and playing violin in his spare time until he retired about 30 years ago. That’s when life got really interesting. Stoltz, a lifelong nature lover, began to collect flowers, grass and leaves that caught his eye, pressing them to preserve their intricate colours and textures. He began to work them into pretty patterns, making bookmarks and small designs with the colourful petals he uncovered in the garden or on strolls. Before long, he began to construct complex landscapes, domestic scenes and vistas using nothing but nature. Today, the 86-year-old Barrhaven resident is an internationally acclaimed pressed flower artist, winning numerous awards in Japan and South Korea and selling thousands of pressed flower art pieces around the world. Canadian officials take his work overseas, and dignitar-

ies like former French president Francois Mitterand and Soviet Union statesman Mikhail Gorbachev have received his work as gifts. “I just enjoyed flowers and pressing them to try and preserve them for the winter, as the winters are so bad here. Before I knew it people started liking them,” Stoltz said, noting his surprise the first time his wife took a pile of bookmarks to a craft show and returned with a bag of money. “It developed from there, but all on my own. I never really saw how other people were doing it, I developed my own technique, my own style.” COLLECTION UPGRADE Starting out, Stoltz visited the Department of Agriculture’s herbarium in central Ottawa, hoping to identify the weeds and grasses he was using. Their specimens were in such horrible shape, he ended up redoing their entire collection. Over time, he joined the World Wide Pressed Flower Guild and more locally the Manotick Art Association. He exhibited his works at the Millers Oven in Manotick with great success, and repeated the experience at the local library branch. Today, his work hangs in Coco’s Cafe in Riverside South, where he’s constantly replenishing the shelves as the work gets purchased. Part of the appeal, he said, is how each piece is unique. From winter sunsets to Spanish courtyards, no picture is the same.

Barrhaven resident Conrad Stoltz displays a pressed flower scene made of flowers, weeds, bark, banana peel and other plant materials. Stoltz regularly wins awards for his craft – just not at home. “I never end, I always keep trying new ways and doing my own style and my own technique,” he said. Stoltz grew up with art and music all around him. His father was an accomplished musician who spent hours in the garden tending to his prize-winning roses – pastimes that instilled a love for nature and music in his children. “I spent a lot of time learning from my father about nature. Although I never really became a gardener, I have that appreciation of the beauty of the garden. It’s just something that I cannot find anywhere to replace. Music is the only other thing,” he said. Stoltz’s brother was an accomplished oil painter, and Stoltz dabbled in water colours and abstracts. He studied journalism in South Africa, so Stoltz even delved into the broadcast realm. For 13 weeks in 1965, he delivered a Saturday afternoon music show on CBC Radio. As a pressed flower artist, Stoltz is constantly solving creative conundrums: to find the perfect flower, plant or seed to create the image in his mind. “I reach a stage if I’m creating something specific that I need a certain effect, texture or colour, and then I have to really think where I’m going to get it. I might see a lily of the valley leaf that’s faded or died that’s just the right colour and I grab that and press it just to see how it turns

out,” he said. “It’s very exciting when it comes out as planned or better. There are some that you have to throw away but some work out so well that you really get excited about it.” Many of his petals come from his wife’s extensive garden around their Barrhaven home. In the mornings, Stoltz plucks the best blooming flowers after the dew has dried. For dark areas, Stoltz uses dried black banana peels. To achieve the feel of a rushing water fall, he once used onion skin with great effect. He is now writing a book about his craft, which he said is very close to his heart. “I want to show people what the art is about and what one needs to do,” he said, though he’s not creating step-by-step instructions. “I think people should discover on their own, so as not to be a ‘me too’ or a copy. Because then you never create originality, you never become your own. That’s why I didn’t continue painting, because I never found a direction where I could stand out, where I could be unique.” Looking back at his long life, Stoltz said he didn’t have “the slightest idea” it would turn out as it has – but he’s not complaining. “I’m probably happier than I’ve ever been. It’s spending hours of pleasure all the time, always creative, always trying to find something different to do, something new.”

Like uncle, like nephew: Dunn Charbonneau, 7, raced his uncle Denis Charbonneau, 36, during the demonstration race for the Eastern Ontario and West Quebec regional Firefit competition. Firefighters from across the region gathered at the Rideau Carleton Raceway to lift, pull, drag and hammer their way through an obstacle course in full firefighting gear. Denis Charbonneau organized the event and was one of 18 Canadian firefighters chosen to bring the Firefit competition to Dubai two years ago.

Firefighters race against time EMMA JACKSON emma.jackson@metroland.com

Nearly 200 firefighters flocked to the Rideau Carleton Raceway this weekend, but the only fire was the competitive flare in each other’s eyes as they raced for bragging rights during the annual Firefit competition. Firefighters young and old, full-time and volunteer, from as far away as Brampton and Montreal gathered at the raceway off Albion Road for the Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec Regional Firefit competition on Aug. 6 and 7. On Saturday, individual fire fighters fought to lift, pull, drag and hammer their way through an obstacle course in full firefighting gear. They began by climbing sixty steps with a 19-kilogram pack on their back, then hoisting a coil of hose to the top of the tower. Then they must create a certain amount of force using a four-kilogram mallet on a hydraulic beam before running around the cones to the far end of the course. From there they must drag a charged and pressurized fire hose 23 metres before hitting a target and dragging an 80-kilogram dummy backwards for 30 metres. On Sunday teams of firefighters took part in several different relays. Denis Charbonneau, the 36-year-old Orleans resident who organized the event this year, said the camaraderie at the competition is the most important part. “It doesn’t matter where you’re from,

if you’re part time, full time, retired, volunteer. Everyone goes into the same building,” he said, adding that since it’s just bragging rights on the line – and the chance to compete in the national competition – everyone cheers for everybody else. “It doesn’t matter if you don’t do it in two minutes. Just finish it,” he said. “If you do it in six minutes and you finish it, other guys will still be coming up to you after and saying you can do this next time, or fix this.” On the world stage, Canadian firefighters have a strong team of Firefit Olympians. Last year’s world champion is from Sudbury, Ont., and competed at the raceway event. Charbonneau himself was one of 18 Canadian firefighters chosen to take the Firefit sport to Dubai and train firefighters there how to do it. “It started in the States, but the Canadians are strong,” he said. After the opening ceremonies on Saturday, Charbonneau demonstrated to the other competitors how to run the course. He raced against his seven-year-old nephew, Dunn Charbonneau, who beat his uncle easily since he used lighter equipment and ran up fewer steps. The Bourget resident said he wants to be a firefighter when he grows up, “because its fun” and he wants to help people. The weekend’s winning teams and individuals will compete at the national competition in Medicine Hat, Alta., in September.

Keeping your kids sharp for a great back-to-school start (NC) Parents have an important role to play in their children’s education. Going back to school is always an adjustment for kids after summer break, but making sure they eat well will help boost their energy and their brain power. Canadian research shows that a child’s behaviour, learning capacity, cognitive performance and school attendance are affected by proper nutrition. “It is important for parents to provide children with healthy foods to keep them alert throughout the day,” says registered dietitian Cara Rosenbloom. “Healthy food consumption directly relates to better learning.” It is easy to incorporate foods into your child’s diet that are great for brain development and knowledge retention: Begin with breakfast including Neilson Dairy Oh! milk, which contains DHA, an omega-3 fatty acid which supports the normal physical development of the brain, eyes and nerves Ditch the sugary snack bars and pack blueberries for recess snack instead. Blueberries may help improve

learning capacity and memory—they also provide a natural carbohydrate boost to help maintain energy. Lunches including whole grains are always a great option. Whole grains contain fibre and protein, which provide a steady stream of energy and help boost alertness. Include Dairy oh! white or chocolate milk as a snack. A 2010 study showed that children who drank milk about four times per week had better memory and longer attention spans than children who rarely drank milk. Dinner is just as important as any meal when fueling working minds. Protein from chicken, fish or milk helps keep the brain active—perfect for focusing on homework! Serving up healthy foods that contain complex carbohydrates, protein and, omega-3 fats may improve a child’s concentration, memory and attentiveness. Kids will also learn good eating habits by example, so remember to integrate these foods into your own diet to demonstrate the importance of healthy www.newscanada.com eating.

Did you know? (MS) Cyberbullying occurs when a child is embarrassed, harassed, humiliated, threatened, or tormented by another child using the Internet, mobile phones or another interactive and digital technology. Just as genuine a concern as bullying, cyberbullying has resulted in children killing others or even committing suicide. Cyberbullying occurs when minors are on both sides of bullying or if the bullying was at least insti-

gated by a minor against another minor. Some of the more common means in which a child is victimized by cyberbullying include repeated e-mails or instant messages, posting real or doctored images online, sharing intimate information against a child’s will and encouraging other children to share in the bullying. Though some instances of cyberbullying rise to a level where criminal charges are filed, this is rare. BS117007

Ottawa hosts national ultimate tourney this weekend EMMA JACKSON emma.jackson@metroland.com

This weekend the Ottawa Carleton Ultimate Association will host Canada’s biggest tournament of the year, welcoming 68 teams and 1,500 athletes from across the country to fight for a chance to compete in next year’s world ultimate frisbee championships. The Canadian Ultimate Championship will decide which five Canadian teams will compete in the world tournament from each division: men’s, women’s, mixed, juniors (19 and under) and masters’ (34 and up). Between August 11 and 14 each team will play as many as five games a day before they even reach the final rounds on Saturday. It’s only fitting that Canada’s ultimate frisbee championship would take place in Ottawa. The city boasts the world’s first and largest purpose-built ultimate frisbee facility, one of the world’s largest ultimate frisbee leagues at 5,000 players strong, and the world’s oldest annual tournament that predates even this weekend’s 25th annual nationals by a year.

In 1997 the league was still struggling for field space as it was considered a fringe sport by the city of Ottawa. It decided to pool its resources and purchase a piece of land in Ottawa South off Manotick Station Road. The Ultimate Parks Inc facility now has 19 fields that are maintained and set up specifically for ultimate frisbee games. Cory Bowditch, one of three tournament directors and a long-time player in the local association, said the sport’s popularity in Ottawa grew from the high tech boom in the early 2000s, where word of mouth spread its popularity through that sector and into the government’s ranks. Now the league is focused on attracting youth to the sport. “Obviously we’re always trying to bring more people into the sport. Ideally we would really love more and more youth to get involved, because they’re where the sport will come from in the future,” he said. Osgoode resident Adam Blanchfield, 17, is a senior player on Ottawa’s junior team RessureXion, and has been playing ultimate since he was in Grade 5. He said the team has fairly

Osgoode resident Adam Blanchfield plays on Ottawa’s only competitive ultimate frisbee junior team, RessureXion. The 17-year-old hopes to play varsity ultimate when he graduates from high school next year. low chances of moving on to the world championship, partly because Ontario school boards and municipalities don’t sanction the sport in the same way other provinces such as British Columbia do. “In Vancouver, it’s in all the

high schools. We don’t have that here. Even at (St. Mark Catholic School in Manotick) we don’t have it, and we’re walking distance from UPI. We’re so close to the best privately owned fields in Canada, and we don’t have a team,” he said.

Because the sport isn’t sanctioned, resources aren’t allotted in the school board for coaches, travel expenses and time off from school to take part in the sport, making it harder to convince teachers and students to participate. However, Blanchfield said he has hopes for the sport he fell in love with as a kid looking for a fast, competitive, non-contact sport. Universities are beginning to offer scholarships for their varsity ultimate teams, and next year the Ultimate Canada will split the juniors into separate men’s and women’s divisions as participation continues to grow. Blanchfield, who wants to be a diesel mechanic, said he plans to factor competitive ultimate into his post-secondary education choices, with dreams of going to the national championships on a varsity team. “Kemptville College offers the (mechanic) program through Guelph University. Just as a coincidence, Guelph University was the men’s national champions for ultimate (last year),” he said. “So, who knows.” For a complete schedule visit www.cuc2011.com.

The Ottawa West Ball Hockey League’s bantam all-star team proved to be Ontario’s best at the provincial championships in Mississauga on July 10.

Ottawa West rules province Every year the Ottawa West Ball Hockey League puts together two all-star teams – one bantam and one midget – to represent Ottawa in the provincial championship tournament. This year’s tournament was held in Mississauga on July 9 and 10 and the Ottawa West team won the Ontario bantam championship. The team played six games, losing only one in the round-robin but they were able to move into the playoffs with a wildcard berth. They won the first playoff game on Saturday rather convincingly with an 8-1

score. The semifinal and final games on Sunday turned out to be two very exciting, high tension, close scoring games. The championship game played Sunday at noon had temperatures hitting 30 C with the arena’s humidex rating was well above that. Ottawa was able to hold on against the tournament’s top seeded team – the Withrow Park Knights form Toronto, to win the tournament and gain a berth in next year’s national championships.

Thank you so much for your dedication and hard work in helping my daughter and I find our new home! What could have been a stressful time was made effortless, because you took the time to understand my situation and moved things along in a quick and professional manner. You took the time and care to ask me all the right questions about what I wanted and needed. What impressed me the most was your commitment in assisting me to find the very best home for me, in such a short period of time. It was a pleasure to have you represent me, and I would be happy to recommend your services to anyone who wants to buy or sell their home. It is an honour! I wish – Tara you all the best in the future.

Nim, Jason and their team are awesome! They are exceptional agents to work with and we highly recommend them to anyone buying or selling a home. When it came to buying our “dream home,” they stepped in and took charge, presenting the offer in person and using their powers of persuasion to ensure we got what we wanted. They dealt with a bank-financing hiccup very professionally to ensure we didn’t lose our new home. In selling our property, Nim and Jason met with us several times to offer useful advice on how to get the most for our home. In the end, our home Sold in one day for above asking price. For both transactions, we were glad MM Team was working for us and not the other way around. – William and Kathryn
