Arts - Students at the Greely Elementary School learn from thee best as they take part in the week-long RBC Blues in Schools program. The program came to Greely for the first time, running from Feb. 24 to March 6, bringing with it five entertainers who know their way around blues music and are happy to share their experience and talent with the school children. Several years ago, Greely senior kindergarten teacher Gloria Farrell was interested in giving students a glimpse of what blues music was all about. A guitar player herself, she remembers how music was always a part of her life growing up. She found that Bluesfest had a program to help out and with a $500 donation from RBC, it became accessible to the students. “It is very affordable for every school,” she said. The goal is to foster student acceptance despite different ethnic backgrounds, promote the use of music in different

areas of education including art, history and creative writing, develop core classes into performing groups so that they can showcase their talent and be exposed to a wider audience. The program consists of a two-week visit of musicians, who meet with students in an assembly-style presentation and then conduct core-group learning sessions. “It really helps to bring students together regardless of what language they speak,” said Farrell. “We learn so much through music.” The program was created back in 1999 in two Ottawa-area school. This year the program will bring its special brand of education to thousands of students. Mark Monahan, Bluesfest executive director said, “the intent of the program is to expose students from all back grounds to music and to encourage them to use music as a positive outlet in dealing with the world around them.” Last Wednesday, at the school, were veteran blues guitarist and Greely resident JW Jones and blues bassist Laura Greenberg. Their lively and entertaining introduction of blues captured the imagination of all of the students. Jones and Greenberg explained how hundreds of years ago the men and women taken from other counties to work as slaves in North America were only able to bring their voices with them. Out of their songs of heartbreak and turmoil came, over time, the modern blues.

Performing and educating the children is something both performers enjoy. “I am already a substitute teacher,” said Greenberg who has been playing music for the past 10 years.

ton University. “It is really fun. We talk about how emotion is expressed through the blues,” said Greenberg. JW Jones is one of Canada’s top touring artists. A Maple Blues Award-winner, he has played his brand of the blues in 19 countries and released seven albums. He told the children his musical idol growing up was BB King. Ironically his band opened up for BB King when he performed at Ottawa’s Bluesfest recently.

This is the fifth time JW Jones has taken part in the Blues in School program. “We try to show how blues is functional and how it related to kids,” he said. “I tell all of my students that you have to listen carefully to the blues.” Jones believes that most modern music originated with the blues. “I started out on drums when I was 15,” explained Jones. “I saw BB King and then switched to guitar.” The duo played a small blues instrumental that highlighted the dynamics of the music and quizzed their student audience about how they felt about what they were hearing. Jones explained that blues was about a range of emotions from happy to sad, angry and even frustration. “No matter what feeling you can sing about it and feel better,” he said. “There are even blues songs about bullying,” said Greenberg. The pair talked of the history of the blues and how most modern musicians can trace, one way or another, their interest and musical direction to blues performers from the past. One example they gave was the Rolling Stones who selected their name from the title of a song performed by blues legend Muddy Waters.

Warming up on the stage are left to right: John Miller fiddle, Earl Casey lead guitar, Donna St. Louis vocals, Marc Lemens rhythm guitar, Harry Allan bass and Roger Fowler accordion. Over the years even Pierces’s Corners was too small and the group moved to Osgoode this past September. They play and dance, drink coffee and socialize from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. There is no admission fee, but visitors are encouraged to make a donation. “I got the idea from a club in Trenton,” explained Miller who is also the head of the Greely Old Time Music and Country Dance club. “We all play somewhere else on the

weekend. We have mostly seniors and they will get home before dark,” said Miller. The crowd brings their own food and there is enough space in front of whoever is playing for couples to dance. The musicians never know what is going to be coming up next, but after years of playing they are ready to take on the challenge. “We may have to learn it as we go,” said Miller.

Community - Osgoode’s Main Street is quiet on a weekday afternoon, but upstairs in the meeting room at the community centre the floor is shaking. Every second and fourth Wednesday of the month musicians from as far away as Ottawa, Chelsea, North Gower, Nepean and Osgoode descend on the community centre to take part in an afternoon event called Coffee and Jam. At least 100 spectators gather to listen as fiddle and guitar players each take a few minutes at centre stage to play their music and entertain guests. The rest of the waiting musicians gather round the playing area, waiting their turn quietly playing along to what ever country and western tune is being played. There are hundreds of years playing experience in the room every time they get together. Coffee and Jam began back seven years ago upstairs in Riverside South at Moncion’s Your Independent Grocer. John Miller, who founded the group, is a fiddle player and along with his wife, Hazel, used to meet with a few other musicians at the grocery store to have a littler jam session and then enjoy some coffee after. The jam session began to grow as people arrived just to hear the great music and musicians came who wanted to keep their skills and music healthy. Eventually the group to move to Pierce’s Corners.

OSU Force Academy Player Selected To Play In FC Barcelona Tournament While young local soccer players dream of an early thaw so they can get back on the field earlier, Ottawa South United’s Ronan Kratt will be living out a dream as he takes to a Spanish pitch for the April 14-16 FC Barcelona Escola International Tournament. “I’m looking forward to it a lot,” says the Grade 5 student who’s been kicking the ball around in the snow recently at St. Leonard Catholic School in Manotick. Kratt found out that he’d been invited to the exclusive tournament when his parents called him into his room before school to show him the note they’d received from the famed La Liga side. “It was really exciting,” recalls the 10-year-old. “I was pretty happy – if you saw the video my dad was taking.” Ronan’s father smiles at the memory. “It took him awhile to realize what was happening,” recounts Martin Kratt, who will also make the trip to Catalonia for a week around Easter. “And then he started jumping up and down, screaming, ‘I’m going to Barcelona!’” Kratt calls himself “a really big fan of FC Barcelona” and is keen to play in the event at the club’s training grounds. “It’s exciting just to go to Barcelona. Not many people get to go there,” notes the dual-footed striker who owns a juggling record of 419 bounces. “I really like their players, like Messi and Neymar, and their style of play.” Kratt was the lone player from OSU to attend an FC Barcelona camp last July in Tampa, FL. Over 2,500 players took part in the sessions at several points in the U.S., including some from as far as Mexico, Venezuela and Belize. “It was cool. I got to look at how different countries play,” highlights Kratt, who enjoyed the opportunity to learn from the Barcelona coaches. “They obviously knew a lot about soccer. It was really great to take on their knowledge.” Feeling a bit nervous initially, Kratt realized within his first few hours of training that he stacked up pretty well compared to the other camp attendees. “It was a bit easier than my club, I would say,” details Kratt, whose OSU team plays in the top regional league possible against an age group a year older than them. Kratt credits OSU Head Coach Paul Harris, formerly a coach for Everton FC’s youth academy, for playing a big part in his success. “He really encourages me to try things in games,” signals the athlete who attends twice-a-week practices with Harris at OSU’s Centre of Excellence. “He tells me to try something exciting.” Kratt feels “proud” to have earned the chance to play in the tournament that will feature FC Barcelona academy teams, Barcelona’s Escola teams from elsewhere in Spain, and other entries from around the world such as South Korea, Poland, United Arab Emirates, China, India, Japan and Egypt. He’ll be one of two Canadian players – and the only one in the 2002/2003-born age group – to dress for the four sides assembled from the U.S. camps. “We’re exceptionally pleased to see a player from our club earn this opportunity to compete in front of one of the world’s most renowned football franchises,” states OSU President Bill Michalopulos. “We look forward to having Ronan represent OSU and our continent on this big stage and showing off the talent developing here in Ottawa and our Force Academy”.

“I think this is the biggest showing of big city mayors gathered in many years,” MAYOR GREGOR ROBERTSON

disappointment in that regard. The caucus called on the federal government to reverse its withdrawal of $1.7 billion in annual social housing investments and draft a nationwide plan for affordable housing. “We need to avert a housing disaster,” Robertson said. That includes ensuring that home ownership is within reach for middle-class Canadians, many of whom “increasingly cannot afford to live in our cities,” he added. Transit and transportation is another unifying concern amongst the urban mayors, who quoted statistics from the Federation of Canadian Municipalities claiming traffic costs the economy $10 billion in lost productivity each year and that the av-

erage Canadian spends 34 days per year in their car. Of course, each mayor has local issues that top their own list of concerns, like the Ottawa River Action Plan needed to clean up the city’s main water source, said Mayor Jim Watson. But with an overall consensus that available funds in the federal government’s $14.4-billion, 10-year Building Canada program should be distributed on a roughly percapita basis, the mayors could avoid squabbling over who deserved more and focus instead on speaking with a unified voice on common issues, Robertson said. The mayors didn’t have much to say about Canada Post eliminating door-to-door delivery in all urban areas in favour of community group mailboxes. That issue was still under discussion when they ducked out to appear at the press conference, Robertson said. “There are big concerns by big-city mayors about the lack of consultation,” he said. “We need to help shape these changes as they affect our cities.” Pressed on the issue later on, Robertson said the primary concern of mayors is that cities and municipalities were not consulted about the mail delivery change. Although the caucus couldn’t dispute that some changes to mail delivery are warranted, Robertson said mayors are worried about potential effects on streetscapes and finding space for the large mailboxes, as well as litter from flyer mail.

News - Canada’s civic leaders tried to shift the focus away from Toronto Mayor Rob Ford and onto the major priority outlined by the mayors of large Canadian cities on Feb. 26: affordable housing. But while the mayors’ caucus claimed the Ottawa meeting was a productive, outside those closed doors the presence of Ford and the controversy surrounding his drug use overshadowed the discussion of important municipal issues. When asked whether Ford was a disruption during the Feb. 26 session, Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson told reporters he was glad for the large turnout of municipal leaders – “I think this is the biggest showing of big city mayors gathered in many years,” said Robertson, the chairman of the Big City Mayors Caucus. “It’s good to see so many in the room together.” Mayors from Quebec were less diplomatic in a separate press conference afterwards, telling reporters they shunned Ford, didn’t shake his hand and avoided looking

at him. When some of the mayors present weren’t shunning Ford, they were finding common ground on funding for affordable housing and transit – the two overarching concerns all the mayors agreed were most important, Robertson said. Keeping cities strong and “unlocking their economic potential” is reliant on finding real solutions to Canada’s housing crunch, Robertson said, calling the last federal budget a

Author shines light on Canada’s early Arctic adventurers Adam Kveton adam.kveton@metroland.com

Arts - An Ottawa-area author is hoping to win Canada’s early Arctic adventurers some well-deserved fame with her new book, In the Shadow of the Pole, detailing 10 expeditions between 1871 and 1912. Far from the traditional history text, the book’s author, Season Osborne, said the book is meant to fascinate the average reader with the harrowing adventures of Canada’s early and largely forgotten treks to the Far North. “I want people to see what it was like, because nobody can imagine how it was,” said Osborne. “I want to bring (their stories) to life.” Osborne’s interest in Canada’s early expeditions started when she discovered a gloryhound of old. As editor of an in flight magazine for a northern flight company, Osborne came across a picture of Capt. Joseph-Elzéar Bernier at the age of 71 being hoisted into the air above his ship to scout out ice during a voyage. “The caption said he (Bernier) had claimed the entire Arctic for Canada, which I had never heard of,” said Osborne. “I thought it was significant.” Osborne would go on to write her thesis paper on Bernier’s contribution to arctic sovereignty, realizing that, despite Bernier’s self-aggrandisement, there was much more to the story. Regardless of his legendary status during his own time, even Bernier’s story has been forgotten, while the exploits of many other explorers never were widely known.

“The commanders were scientists, meteorologists,” said Osborne. “So they were low-key, they were there to study the Arctic, and there were policemen leading them ... so not the kind of people who are glory-seekers, except for Capt. Bernier. These guys who went on expeditions, they were all pretty much under 30 years old, single, and they thought they were in for an adventure, and they were,” said Osborne. Going through the journals of scientists, captains and expedition leaders, as well as government accounts and news reports of their exploits, Osborne described some of the early pitfalls of Arctic exploration. “The first bunch of guys didn’t have much to do with the Inuit, so they didn’t learn the great Inuit techniques or about the clothing they wore to survive in this environment,” said Osborne. In one expedition, Osborne described how explorers were instructed to cover prefabricated shacks with turf for warmth during their year-long stay up north. Little did they know that there would be no grass to be seen. “They had no idea what these guys were going into. It’s crazy,” Osborne said. Osborne has been working on the book since 2007, and said she is thrilled to finally have it in print and know people are reading it. Osborne noted that, while you don’t have to want to travel to the arctic to enjoy the book, you might want to keep a cup of coffee nearby to stay warm. Continuing her book-signing tour around Ottawa, Osborne will be signing books in Barrhaven on March 8 at the Indigo on 125 Riocan Ave. between 1 and 4 p.m..

Art - The Greely Players is celebrating their 25th anniversary with the hilarious musical that launched the Broadway career of Carol Burnett: Once Upon a Mattress. “This family-friendly show is a quirky take on The Princess and the Pea”, explained Producer Joan Bruce-Nibogie. “Princess Winifred resembles the Paper Bag Princess or Princess Fiona from Shrek more than Cinderella. Winifred swims the moat!” The lead role of Winifred will be played by Holly Villneuve. “I was 7 years old when I appeared in our first production, Fiddler on the Roof, with my Mom and Grandma,” explained Holly Villeneuve. “I caught the theatre bug and have been a part of 24 Greely Players shows.” Holly will be joined on stage by her mother Janet and grandmother Elaine Stanley, both founding members of the south rural musical theatre troupe. An accomplished singer and graduate of the Canterbury Arts program, Holly also teaches vocal music in Greely, and has been the Greely Players’ Vocal Director for 7 productions. She has also appeared on stage with Orpheus and RAPA. The Greely Players is a notfor-profit community musical theatre group operating on a cost-recovery basis only and relying solely on volunteers. Every other year, they try to mount a production that features children in lead roles. “We’re proud to foster com-

munity involvement in our productions by including actors of all ages,” says Publicity Director Anne Peterson. “Many of our shows feature multiple family members performing together.” A select group of Players also put on presentations at local elementary schools leading up to the main production, and the Greely Players provide a yearly scholarship for local students entering university for the performing arts. The Greely Players’ production of Once Upon a Mattress will take place at the Greely Community Centre from Wednesday, March 26 to Saturday, March 29, 2014 at 7:30 p.m., with additional 2 p.m. matinees on the Saturday and Sunday, March 30. Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for seniors and children 12 and under. Visit greelyplayers.ca to select your own seats or call 613-821-5407 for tickets and more info.

Get rail crossing right

W

hile hearts may be in the right place at city hall in the aftermath of a tragic bus crash that left six people dead in Barrhaven last year, lasting safety at the level rail crossing where the collision occurred will only be found in drastic measures. It was revealed last week that the city has hired an outside consultant to look at whether or not it would be feasible to have OC Transpo buses stop at rail crossings, much like school buses are currently required to do. Buses in Gatineau also follow this practice, something OrlĂŠans Coun. Bob Monette pointed out during debate surrounding the issue at city council on Feb. 26. Whether or not such a move would do any more than just ease public fears about this issue remains to be seen. At many level crossings in the city, such as where the Via tracks cross Merivale Road just east of the Woodroffe Road crossing where the crash occurred, stopping every time may be all that can be done. But at the specific crossing in question, where the Transitway meets the Via tracks near Fallowfield Station, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s difficult to see how requiring buses to stop is the best answer. The initial reports following the incident show that the safety arm was down and

in place when the collision happened, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s difficult to say it would have been effective to have the bus stop at the crossing. Safety procedures can help reduce the number of potential hazards, but canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t prevent everything, including human error. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big problem when it comes to rail crossings. Any failure to heed warnings or follow safety procedures has the potential to result in a significant loss of life. This is why there can be no margin for error when it comes to the Woodroffe crossing. At any other crossing, speed is much lower, and buses are travelling on public road. Forcing those buses to stop wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be a big deal. The Transitway running parallel to Woodroffe is not a public road and is designed for efficient movement of public transit at high speeds. Making the crossing at Fallowfield Station safe through additional procedures is not only unrealistic, it would defeat the purpose of the Transitway. This leaves only a more drastic course of action: grade separation or, in laymanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s terms, an overpass or underpass. If light rail ever goes to Barrhaven, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll need one anyway. Create one for traffic on four-lane Woodroffe, too, while youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re at it. It would be expensive, but the benefit â&#x20AC;&#x201C; safety â&#x20AC;&#x201C; would surely outweigh the cost.

A nickel for your thoughts

B

uried away in a complicated recent report about the Canadian Mint and how it earns money was a statement by a Finance Department spokesman that there is no intention of doing away with the nickel. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a relief. Or is it? Many of us were relieved when the penny was finally put out of its misery. What with accumulation of one cent coins, it was getting so there was no room on the dresser for paper clips, old credit card receipts and phone numbers that you couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remember whose they were. On the other hand, some of us had a nostalgic attachment to the thing: we remembered how it felt to be a kid, collecting pennies and getting ready to take them to the store when there were enough of them. But it was difficult to cling to the nostalgia when it became clear that a penny didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t buy anything anymore and even two pennies werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worth a lot either. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actually quite difficult to discover what two cents will buy you. The Internet is not helpful, except to inform us that what used to be known as penny candy is now sold in bulk or online. The same goes for a nickel. You might be

For some reason nickels donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t accumulate the way pennies used to. And it is slightly frightening to think of a marketplace in which every transaction is rounded up or down to the nearest 10 cents, although we have survived the rounding to five pretty well. In fact, one of the things you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t often hear is people complaining about being shortchanged in the rounding process. A lot of that was expected and not much of it materialized, perhaps because most merchants made the wise decision to do the rounding in the customerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favour.

other side of the coin, is merchants complaining about how much they have lost in the process. Maybe we are growing up. As long as itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not about ice dancing we seem capable of staying calm. So should we encourage the government to hold on to the nickel? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a nice-looking little coin, with a beaver on one side and the Queen on the other. Never did anybody any harm. (Neither did the Queen, although the beaver is not without its critics.) The nickel was bit cooler when it had 12 sides instead of its current none, which was given to us in 1963. But you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have everything and, no matter what small misgivings we might have about the nickel, it is not pleasant to contemplate a future in which the dime fulfils the functions now filled by the nickel and previously occupied by the penny. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the thing, though: is the nickel really all that useful to you anymore? Do you spend them? Do you stick a bunch of them in your pocket the way you used to do with pennies, so that you might be able to get rid of some of them? Or are you already resigned to the nickel going and the dime becoming the new penny?

Certainly there has been agitation for this since the penny was eliminated, even in political circles. NDP MP Pat Martin said a year ago that the nickel is â&#x20AC;&#x153;just a drain on the economy as well as an unnecessary cost to the mint.â&#x20AC;? He pointed out, as others have before him, that it costs more to mint a nickel than a nickel is worth. Martin even introduced a private memberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bill in the House of Commons urging the abolition of the nickel. Obviously it failed, since the nickel is still with us. But for how long?

Simply Cook and Enjoy This year, for nutrition month, Ottawa Public Health wants to encourage residents to get back to basics - Simply Cook and Enjoy. Meals made at home from basic ingredients provide the necessary nutrients for growth, development and well being – and they often cost less! Get back to basics by choosing healthier options such as:

Fruit and vegetables Canada’s Food Guide recommends at least seven vegetables and fruit servings for all individuals 14 years of age and over. Making an effort to include a variety of vegetables and fruit in every meal and snack is an excellent way of ensuring that these recommendations are met.

Whole grain products that are high in fibre Whole grains are a great source off fibre fib and help reduce the risk of cardiovascular ova ascular disease. Fibre-rich foods help you u fe feel eel full d cts that duc h and satisfied. Choosing grain products

have ‘whole grain’ listed as the first item on the ingredient list are often the healthiest.

Lower fat milk products Milk products are important for developing strong bones and reducing the risk of osteoporosis. Choosing lower fat milk and alternative products are a good source of calcium, vitamins D, and protein. For individuals over the age of 50, a daily vitamin D supplement of 400 IU is also recommended.

Lean meat and alternatives The meat and alternative group provides nutrients such as iron, B vitamins, and protein. Choosing leaner cuts of meats and including alternative sources such as beans, lentils and tofu will limit the amount of saturated fat in the diet. Nuts and seeds contain healthy fats, which are beneficial for cardiovascular health. Eating fish will also reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.

Many people have come to rely on processed and convenience foods instead of home cooked meals. Although some processed foods can be healthy, many contain added fats, sugars and salt. Examples include canned soups, luncheon meats, breakfast cereal, frozen meals, salty snacks and candy.

Arts - The National Arts Centre will be the venue for a jazz fundraiser concert hosted by an Ottawa South resident on March 6 and 7. Claudia Salguero loves to sing, paint

and create. She also loves to give back, which is why the artist will host a pair of concerts to help raise money for Foyers Bambi Colombie, which cares for at risk children living in the slums in Columbia. Along with her 10-piece band, Salguero will present Idilio, a concert on the 4th Stage at the NAC. “The more people I have at my concerts, the more money I can send to the foundation,” Salguero said. This will be the sixth fundraiser show over the course of three years Salguero has hosted at the NAC for this cause.

She said this cause is near and dear to her heart and she looks to help out where she can. Tickets for the event are $30. To purchase tickets or to find out more information about the show please visit nac-cna.ca/en/ community/event/7183. SUBMITTED

REFORMING THE NATIONAL CAPITAL COMMISSION By Jim Watson

I have long been an advocate for reform at the National Capital Commission (NCC) and since being elected Mayor in 2010 it has only become more apparent to me that this is an organization that needs to change or else risk hindering the progress of our great city.

JOSEPH MORIN/METROLAND

Scotiabank does its part for the care centre The Osgoode Township care centre received a $5,000 donation from Scotiabank in Osgoode as part of the bankâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fundraising pledge to the care centre. The centreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Busting out the Brews event on Feb. 7 helped the it move a little closer to its goal of $500,000. The care centre has already fundraised more than $230,000 for capital upgrades. In the front row from left to right are: Wendy hill of the care centre; Susan Toll and Natalie Shilborn of Scotiabank; and Lori Noris, executive director of the Osgoode Township Care Centre.

More broadly, I believe that the NCC needs to refocus its mandate. Over the past three years as Mayor, my council colleagues and I have worked well with the NCC but often we are discussing the minutia of city projects such as what types of plants will be planted at our Light Rapid Transit (LRT) stations. These are issues that our city staff members are more than capable to handle on their own while the NCC should be focused on the large-scale issues of national signiďŹ cance for which they are mandated.

Refocusing the NCCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mandate could understandably take some time but I believe that the board of directors of the NCC can be made more accountable and representative of Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interests immediately should the Prime Minister act on the recommendation of our joint letter to him. 4HE TAXPAYERS OF /TTAWA AND 'ATINEAU DESERVE TO BE represented at the NCC because the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decisions have direct ďŹ nancial implications for them.

!S A lRST STEP TOWARD REFORM -AYOR -AXIME 0EDNEAUD Jobin of Gatineau and I recently wrote to Prime Minister Stephen Harper to ask that the Mayors of Ottawa and Gatineau be given the ability to each name a directly elected representative to the NCC board of directors, to be nominated by our respective City Councils. The key reason for this letter is that the majority of the NCCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current board members are neither from the National Capital Region nor chosen by its residents and that should not be the case. I understand wanting to bring pan-national representation to the board but those who know Ottawa best are those who live here not those who ďŹ&#x201A;y in for board meetings. It would be a common sense reform towards accountability to make the majority of the NCC board members National Capital residents.

Show compassion: donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feed deer Special to the Manotick News

While feeding wild animals like deer may seem like a compassionate thing to do, especially in winter, it can have detrimental effects. Using the wrong feed can result in digestive problems. People may inadvertently do more harm than good through improper feeding practices. Feeding may encourage more deer in an area than the habitat can support. This can result in poor reproduction, smaller fawns, and higher

winter mortality rates. Deer-vehicle collisions may occur as deer cross roads to and from feeders. Deer that come to feeders may lose their natural fear of humans and cause conflicts at other times of the year. A concentration of deer around artificial feeders can tempt natural predators of deer such as wolves to change their natural habits and come closer to populated areas. Concentrating deer in an area increases the risk of disease transmission among ani-

mals. Although chronic wasting disease has not been found in Ontario in wild animals, there are concerns that encouraging concentrations of deer increases the risk and speed of disease transmission. ARTIFICIAL FEEDING

Deer are designed to store fat, reduce their metabolism and successfully process that fat in the winter while feeding on natural foods according to their daily needs. If deer become dependent on artificial feed, their metabolic rate increases and they require more food to survive. When artificial feeding stops, deer can die from the stress. In areas where natural food is plentiful, supplemental feeding can do more harm than good.

A night at community rink left everyone warm

I

t certainly wasn’t anything to get up in the middle of the night and write home about, according to my cousins from Ottawa. They had rinks inside of heated buildings and ice as smooth as glass, whereas the little rink behind the Northcote School was anything but grand. Yet it suited our purposes well, and certainly got lots of use once the ice was built up on the patch of ground that in the summertime was nothing but weeds and hay growing willy-nilly. The rink had stand-up boards on two sides, and each end was open so that we could just walk right onto the ice easily. As soon as the winter had settled in, the boys of senior fourth, along with their fathers, started building up the ice. It was a major job, since every drop of water had to be hauled from the farms around, or from the pump in the middle of the schoolyard. It was brought in big barrels, and timed so that many sleighs would arrive at the

MARY COOK Memories same time, and the water dumped on the spot. Using pails to take water from the school pump was a wasted exercise, since most of it would be spilled before hitting the rink, and a pail of water did little to build up the ice. No one got on the ice until it was of the depth the senior fourth boys thought was proper, and this could take weeks at the start of winter. And then, finally, it was deemed suitable. What a day that was. Miss Crosby, who excused no one from a full day of schooling, on that day cut the classes short, allowed us to bring what passed for skates, and have an hour of fun before heading home. And what an hour it was. Of course, the ice was full of lumps and cracks and ridges,

and until we learned what area of the rink to avoid, we spent most of the time picking ourselves up off the new ice. A couple of the farm fathers had made wide-bladed shovels, attached to the handle of forks, and the rule was that after each use, the ice had to be shovelled off, and the accumulated snow shoved through the two openings at either end of the rink. The older boys took advantage of this chore, and did it with their skates still on. I noticed they always managed to get a good skate in while doing it, and often managed to get a fast game of shinny in the bargain. If there wasn’t a Saturday night house party in the community, whole families went to the Northcote School rink. Most came on big flatbottomed sleighs, and they

PET OF THE WEEK

circled a big steel barrel that was filled with firewood, and once lit, the flames shot a mile into the sky, and even though there was scarcely enough heat to take the chill out of your bones, it gave a bit of relief to the freezing night air. Women sat on the sleighs wrapped in blankets, and most of the men stood around the burning barrel, smoking their pipes and talking farm talk. We children put on our skates on the sleighs, and mine were those terrible bob skates, dull as dishwater and rusted brown. I used them until Miss Crosby one night arrived with a pair of regular skates for me, handing them to me in a brown paper bag so that no one would know of the deed. I was ecstatic and finally was able to keep up with my rival Marguirite, who not only had new skates, they were as white as the driven snow, and her mother had attached tiny silver bells to the laces, and she tinkled like someone from a fairy tale as she skated around and around the rink. There was no music of course. Not like in the rink in Renfrew where we once went

to see an ice revue brought out from Ottawa, and listened to songs like Daisy, Daisy, Give Me Your Answer True and The Skater’s Waltz.

No one got on the ice until it was of the depth the senior fourth boys thought was proper, and this could take weeks at the start of winter. We would skate until Mr. Briscoe blew a whistle and that meant the fun was over for that night. We would try to do one more “crack the whip,” and then the boys would use the big shovels and scrape off the chips and snow, and another couple of barrels of water, kept on one of the big sleighs would be poured over the surface of the rink, left to freeze over solid before our next night of skating. Then we would all head into the Northcote School where the Ladies Aid would have big pots of steaming hot

chocolate sitting on the stove in the middle of the room. Always there were oatmeal cookies and ginger snaps, which vanished in jig time. I would tumble into bed, happily exhausted, with my toes still cold as ice, after crawling out of my clothes which would be soaked right through to my navy blue fleece-lined underwear, but with a feeling of utter joy and contentment. Our whole family would feel the same. My three brothers would have had a night of roughhousing, my sister Audrey would be asked to skate with a boy she fancied. I would be with my best friends, and Mother and Father would be happy that another night of community fun was had, and hadn’t cost a penny. Interested in an electronic version of Mary’s books?

Hi! I’m Jessie, a black and white mixed Shitzu. My Mommy and Daddy are on holidays so I get to visit with my big cousin Casey. Every day, we go for long walks, play in the snow in the big dog park and, best of all, I get to share the bed with Casey and his humans! I’m a very active girl who loves teasing Casey and yet I get to cuddle up to him for a well needed rest. Casey is my bestest friend forever.
