News - Bruce Brayman, president of the Greely Community Association, gave an update on the village’s coming arena on behalf of Alain Landriault. Landriault signed a collective agreement to purchase lands for a Sportsplex from the Sunset Lakes developer in October 2013. “A recreational facility has always been a part of our vision for Sunset Lakes and the Greely Village Centre,” Dan Anderson said in an October 2013 press release. Anderson, along with partner Marcel Renaud, co-founded the development in 1990. “This complex is set to become a community hub for Greely residents, providing

them with sports, recreation and community facilities,” he said. The privately-funded facility would include a twin-pad arena, an indoor soccer/ultimate field, a fitness facility as well as office space, classrooms and a restaurant. One of the arenas would seat up to 2,000 people. That which makes it an ideal location for small-scale concerts and events. Brayman said Landriault is still working on changing the zoning for the land. It will start at the far north end of the Sunset Lakes development and butting against Parkway Road to the north and the city’s planned soccer field park complex on the east side. He is also planning some kind of fundraising event in the village this fall. “He wants to do something fun with families, have people getting out and talking about what they’d like to see at the Sportsplex,” Brayman said, adding Landriault is looking to fundraise $10,000. “He wants to start off with a commitment from the community,” Brayman said. WHAT’S NEXT

Brayman said he’s still looking for volunteers to help organize the village’s Canada Day festivities. “It’s six weeks out,” he said. The next Greely Community Association meeting will take place the second Wednesday in June. The association will elect it’s new executive. For more information, visit www.greelycommunity.org.

Enough water for continued developments in Greely: SNC Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News - A water budget for the source protection area that includes Greely shows there’s more than enough water to support the existing homes

and new developments. Tessa Di Lorio, a hydro geologist for the South Nation Conservation Authority, talked to residents about future development and the proper care for their well and septic systems during a Gree-

ly Community Association meeting on May 14. “The water ‘budget’ looks at what goes into the system and what the demands are,” Di Lorio said. See WATER, page 2

Water should not be a concern for Greely residents Continued from the front

“Then we measure how much would be available if we didn’t have rain for two years and then if we had the lowest average rainfalls for the next 10 years.� Alison McDonald, an environment planner with South Nation, who also attended the May 14 meeting in Greely, said despite the abundance of water, it’s important for

residents to know how to take care of their wells. The conservation authority and the Raisin Region Conservation Authority held an open house in March 2012 with residents of Shadow Ridge to discuss how the source protection plan might impact them. The two conservation groups created a source protection committee six years ago to assess activities that threaten drinking water south

and east of Ottawa, as part of the provincial Clean Water Act of 2006. Local source protection committees across Ontario must submit their policies to the province by August 2012. The committee’s draft policy would require area municipalities to enforce stricter standards for maintaining fuel storage tanks and septic systems, applying pesticides and fertilizer and monitoring other

The beneďŹ ts of interlocking concrete

When you need to pave your driveway or walkways, there is no better choice than interlocking concrete. It’s one of the most economical pavement options out there, especially when it comes to long-term care. That’s partly because interlocking pavement is low maintenance. That ease is something you can appreciate right from day one as interlocking concrete can be used immediately after it is installed. It is also reusable, too, which is great if you have to remove it to ďŹ x a pavement problem or to install utilities. With interlocking concrete, you can simply remove the pavement and reinstall it when the work is completed. Interlocking concrete is also a great choice for our harsh Canadian winters. The paver units’ joints help absorb any sort of frost-related movement, meaning that it is freeze and thaw resistant. With interlocking concrete, worrying about pavement damage is a thing of the past, and that’s particularly great considering how aesthetically pleasing interlocking concrete can be. By going with interlocking concrete opposed to other pavement options, you have the choice of an assortment of patterns, curves, lines and designs that can help liven up

ing homes and the planned development. “There has to be a number of monitoring wells on the land and a sample from a nearby subdivision,� Di Lorio said. “Then the conservation authority goes over the plan. Sometimes developers will want to do 80 units and we have to tell them there’s only enough capacity for 60 then they go back and change their plans.� Osgoode Coun. Doug Thompson said in 2002-2003 the city stopped development in Greely for six months and did a study of water in the area. “They found that there’s a very sufficient supply, there’s a large lake under this area,� he said. But some residents were still concerned that devel-

chemical, industrial and agricultural activities that could contaminate drinking water. Greely and Vars are the city of Ottawa’s only two source protection areas within the committee’s catchment area, which covers east of the Rideau River excluding downtown. A committee run by the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority and Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority has created a separate document for source protection on the west end of the city. During the May 14 meeting, McDonald and Di Lorio also talked about the city’s guidelines when it comes to privately serviced developments. The city requires the developer to do a cumulative impact assessment, which includes making sure there is enough water to service the surround-

opment and climate change could cause their wells to go dry. McDonald said making sure the well is drilled, or dug deep enough can prevent it from going dry. “It’s often dug wells that aren’t deep enough and they need to access a lower aquifer (rock bed underground that filters water),� she said. Last year, with low rainfalls and drought warnings, the conservation authority monitored the water table across the watershed. Di Lorio said well water should be inspected once a year, with kits provided by Ottawa Public Health. The mouth of the well should be at least 40 centimetres above ground and should be sealed tightly to avoid soil and contaminants making their way into the water supply.

Ottawa woman to launch new book at Aviation and Space Museum Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News - Felicity McKendry knew she wanted to be a pilot when she was in grade school, racing home to catch the radio broadcast of Captain Sparks and Orphan Annie. “I sent away for a cardboard cockpit and would pretend to fly while I listened,” McKendry said. But in the ’40s there weren’t many women pilots, so she was advised to be a stewardess as a way to reach the skies. Problem is, she grew too tall. “Stewardesses were only supposed to be 5’2”,” McKendry said.

Instead of giving up, McKendry became a teacher and with her first paycheque, she commenced her flight training at the Kingston Flying Club. By the time she had logged 50 hours, McKendry had won the Webster Competition – the Stanley Cup of private aviation. It was then that her instructor Doug Wagner encouraged her to be a flight instructor. It meant logging 200 hours of flight and the cost would be two years of her teaching salary. “The club let me go on credit,” McKendry said. It was the job as an instructor that allowed McKendry, 84, to meet her husband, who later became an air traffic controller. “We found out after we were married that he

had ordered the cardboard cockpit while listening to Captain Sparks too,” McKendry said. The couple was married in 1955; just a month later they packed up and headed for Toronto, so Spencer could take the Transport Canada course to become an air traffic controller. Spencer was third in his class and basically had his pick of airports from Vancouver to Halifax. “We chose Ottawa because it was close to Kingston,” Felicity said. McKendry became an active member of the Ottawa community. She has received her own Canada Post stamp, as well as a being recognized by the Canadian Parkinson Society for fundraising in 2007.

McKendry also became an active member of the Manotick United Church – where she still attends services, despite living in the Courts at Barrhaven. She went on to become a chief flying instructor at the Rockliffe Airport and has trained more than 1,000 students before retiring. Some of her distinguished students included astronauts Marc Garneau and Steve MacLean. McKendry’s book entitled I Grew Too Tall took her a year to write. “It was my New Year’s resolution in 2013. I made a pledge to spend an hour writing it,” she said. The book is set to launch at the Canadian Aviation and Space Museum on May 24 from 1 to 3 p.m.

City looks for input on Dieselâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dressing room Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News - The city is asking for input on a proposal to name a hockey dressing room in the Stuart Holmes Arena in Osgoode after Andrew â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dieselâ&#x20AC;? Winnicki. This is the second try at naming something after the 22-year-old man who died in a tragic hunting accident. More than 1,000 residents signed a petition to change Osgoodeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2nd Line Road when the city

changed the name in the fall of 2013. But the effort was came too late and it was renamed Pioneer Road. Winnicki was killed in an accident on private property near 2nd Line and Dalmeny Roads in October 2012. The hockey dressing room would be a fitting commemoration applicants Emily and Tom Kelly say, because at the time of his death Winnicki had already been volunteering with the Osgoode Minor Hockey League for three

years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He had always encouraged his players and had a wonderful ability to get the best out of them,â&#x20AC;? the application to the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commemorative naming committee reads. Winnicki also volunteered to maintain the outdoor rink and spent hours there with neighbourhood children. Residents are asked to provide input to naming@ottawa.ca or 613-580-2424, ext. 28901.

THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSORS

News - The United Way said it still needs funds to help improve the lives of 16,000 people living in the city after it announced it had fallen about $4 million short of its annual campaign goal. The organization raised $16.7 million during this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campaign, missing the mark of $21 set at the beginning of the campaign back in September. The money goes to support the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work in the community. As a result, the United Way said the money raised will help 60,000 of the 76,000 lives it set out to help. Campaign co-chairs Barbara Cook and Goldy Hyder joined community partners and the campaign team at the Morrison Gardens Community House on May 16 to announce this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campaign total. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Together we worked hard to rally our community around the achievement of our priority goals and that work is bearing fruit. Our work cannot and will not stop here,â&#x20AC;? Cook said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The reality is that there are another 16,000 people â&#x20AC;&#x201C; almost enough people to fill the entire Canadian Tire Centre â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who still need our help.â&#x20AC;? Last year, the organization said it helped 65,000 people after raising $16 million for target-specific programming. Over the past few years the organization has struggled to reach its campaign goals and changed the way its campaigns are run, including extending the campaign and lowering its goals to better meet donorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; capacity. Executive

   

director Michael Allen said at the beginning of the campaign this change was meant to focus on what donorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dollars are responsible for. Fighting for community dollars, Allen added has become increasingly difficult, as more and more charities and fundraisers are looking for donations. Because of these factors, this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campaign took on a new focus. The 2013-14 campaign significantly reduced its goal from the more than $30 million in 201213 to $21 million with a focus on United Way programming. So the difference this year was the money raised was tied to what the United Way defined as measurable goals -- money solely for the United Wayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s organizations which requested funding through designated priorities-- no longer will it ask donors to raise money beyond that. Above the United Way specific goal however, donors still were able to allocated funds to other causes, raising $12.6 million for more than 3,800 other registered Canadian charities, totalling $29.3 million for the campaign year. Jeffrey Dale, director and co-founder at Odawa Group Inc. and chair of United Wayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Community Services cabinet, said that of the money raise, $24.7 million will be invested in the community. Of this total, $12.1 million will support vital front-line programs and United Wayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work in three focus areas: Growing Up Great, Belonging to Community and Turning Lives Around with a total of 107 front-line programs and services to receive funding.

Osgoode Township High School celebrates 60 years Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News - Former Osgoode Township High School students are heading home on May 23. The school will celebrate 60 years with a weekend full of activities planned for former staff and students. Barbara MacDonald, who is on the organizing committee for the event, said she gained life and work experience from her stint as a student and employee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I went to school there and then returned to work there for seven years,â&#x20AC;? MacDonald said, adding she now handles communications for

Skate Canada. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a real range of professionals â&#x20AC;&#x201C; doctors and lawyers and entrepreneurs â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that got their start at the school,â&#x20AC;? MacDonald said. The plan for the 60 reunion was developed after a very successful 50th 10 years ago. MacDonald said it was about a year in planning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted to add on to it, make it more family friendly,â&#x20AC;? she said. The fun will kick off with a pub night on May 23. There will be a private meet and greet first for former staff, followed by a public viewing of the school. Each room will be decorated according to the decade â&#x20AC;&#x201C; complete with old class

photos, clothes of the era and other artifacts. Responsible Choice will be on hand to drive revellers who have had too much to drink. On May 24, there will be a choice between nine holes at the Metcalfe Golf Course or 18 holes at the Anderson Links Golf Course.

It sure beats the snow

A

fter a long, cold winter, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing the people of this city would enjoy more than a heatwave. For what felt like an eternity, Ottawa, and much of the rest of North America for that matter, sat trapped in a semi-glacial state. Nearly all of the Great Lakes froze over. There was snow on the ground almost everywhere in the United States at one point. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had heavy snowfalls in the past â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who can forget the winter of 2007-08 when more than 400 centimetres of fluffy white stuff fell on the city â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but it was the combination of snow and bonechilling cold that made the winter of 2013-14 among the most unbearable in recent memory. The depressing thing is things arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to get much better any time soon. Unfortunately weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking at a wet spring and some long-range forecasts suggest a cooler-than-average summer. The spring thaw and rains that pumped up local rivers and streams have passed with minimal flooding, but it seems like the showers will never stop. Such is late spring in Ottawa. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not all bad news though. Rain may be a pain, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a necessary part of the year for everything we get to harvest this summer and fall. Even if

youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not a farmer or growing backyard veggies, surely we can all agree rain is better than snow. And better that we get the daily showers out of the way before the outdoor festival season gets underway across our city. Events like Ottawa Bluesfest, the Jazz Festival, Folkfest, Canada Day, Race Day and upcoming football and soccer games at Lansdowne Park are much more enjoyable on bright sunny days and warm evenings than when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overcast and damp. Yet the rain will be great for those who got out over the Victoria Day weekend to fill their gardens full of annuals, perennials and vegetables. Better yet, if the heat is toned down a little bit, the lack of scorching heat will only benefit most of those plants and save gardeners from going through litres upon litres of water on a daily basis just to keep the flowers perky and crops alive. This goes for local farmers, too, who bring their bounty to the tables at farmers markets across the city. Just the right amount of rain and warmth, but not oppressively hot, days will help them make the most of their efforts. Weather is an obsession with we Canadians, and it never seems to be perfect for anyone. But it always helps to take a wider look at these trends and

Bring back the guy with the cigar

A

s we find out every day, the Internet giveth and the Internet taketh away. The incredible convenience of doing things online is matched by the incredible inconvenience caused by what others do online. And this doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even count what spending all your time online does to your waistline. The latest event to bring this to our attention is a minor crisis at Centrepointe Theatre where some ticket buyers wound up paying inflated prices to a ticket reseller. The theatre will honour the tickets, even though they were purchased from an unauthorized outlet. In all likelihood the buyers didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know the outlet was unauthorized, since all ticket resellers look quite respectable, even official, when they show up in a Google search. According to a Centrepointe official quoted in the Ottawa Citizen, about 50 per cent of the theatreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tickets are sold online. What happens then is unclear. Do ticket resellers jump in and snap up tickets and sell them for more than they are worth? Or do individual buyers, because they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t attend, perhaps because they want to make a little extra cash, offer up their seats through ticket resellers?

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town Whichever it is, the results arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t all good. While some laud the reselling system for making it possible for people to attend events for which tickets are scarce, others blame the system itself for creating the scarcity of tickets. And there is the further problem of phony tickets. The immediate impulse of many people is to demand that government do something to stop this. The problem is that governments already have. Across Canada, including Ontario, governments have put in place rules to prevent reselling at more than face value. But, of course, resellers operating out of the U.S., which was the case in the Centrepointe incident, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worry about Ontario law. And the laws donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to have put an

end to the ticket reselling business, which carries on. Just do a search on tickets for any upcoming event in Ottawa and see what pops up. Despite a law against selling at inflated value, there must still be money in the reselling biz. Is this a problem? Depends on how you look at it. There are two issues: one is price, the other is availability. Provincial laws deal mainly with the first. The second is tougher. Those who remember the pre-computer days, remember lining up at 5 a.m. or trying desperately to get through on the phone to the box office on the day tickets to a big event went on sale. In the early computer days, the wait was to connect online to the box office the instant the box office opened. That still happens, but it appears in some instances that the resellers somehow get there first, snapping up tickets and frustrating the public. A lot of people just learn to live with this. They trudge off, electronically, to the reseller and get their tickets. Those that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know their way around have to do without, as do those who have an aversion to what they think of as computerized scalping. Some of them would sooner pay the extra

dollars to the old-time scalper, the guy with the cigar whispering outside the arena. At least he seems like a small businessman. For the moment, it appears that government isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the answer. Is the answer to ask large entertainment venues not to sell online? Imagine how that would go over. Even for older generations, using online to purchase tickets has become a habit. Could tickets be made non-transferable? Combining tickets with I.D. has been tried in various places. But what about the person who has genuine reasons for not being able to attend and needs to get rid of his ticket?

Police investigate sexual assault at transit station Erin McCracken erin.mccracken@metroland.com

News - Police are investigating the alleged sexual assault of a 35-year-old woman at Billings Bridge tranist station. Investigators say the woman had just gotten off a public transit bus and was walking at the station when a lone man grabbed her and inappropriately touched her on May 12 at 3 a.m. “The victim does not be-

lieve that the man was on the bus with her,” police said in a statement. She screamed and the man took off on foot, heading west through the parking lot. Police were unable to locate the suspect after arriving on scene.Police declined to disclose in what way the woman was touched, citing investigative reasons. The male suspect is described as Caucasian, six-foot tall, and wearing black clothing and a black baseball cap.

Investigators plan to use footage from cameras in the area to help solve the case. “That’s one of the top 10 things that they do – are there cameras around, were there people with cellphones that were witnesses or were in the area,” said Const. Chuck Benoit, police spokesman.. “Cameras (are) always one of the main (tools) that they look for.” Police are hoping someone saw something and will come forward. Anyone with information is asked to call the Ottawa police sexual assault and child abuse unit at 613-236-1222, ext. 5944, or Crime Stoppers at 613-233-8477.

Soccer club showcases local talent to celebrate World Cup Events serve as fundraiser to raise the roof on soccer club house Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News - The Ottawa South United soccer club and the Rideau Carleton Entertainment Centre are teaming up to bring the World Cup to the capital. Starting June 12 the Raceway – along with embassies of participating nations – will host cultural nights to showcase the country’s heritage.

The centre will also broadcast the 32 world competitions on 32 large-screen televisions 24 hours a day in their new ground-floor facility called Ottawa Soccer Central. Over the course of the 2014 World Cup – which takes place in June and July – Ottawa South United will host soccer tournaments between local soccer clubs at the entertainment centre on Albion Road. Friendly soccer games between embassies will be held on the weekends.

The events are part of a fundraising initiative by the OSU to raise money to finalize the construction of the George H. Nelms Soccer Club House on Mitch Owens Raod next to St. Mark High School. The club has already but down $1 million in trust with the city and is now campaigning to raise the additional $800,000 needed for the project’s completion. Pierre Poilievre, the MP for Nepean-Carleton, said in a press release that the World Cup celebrations were the first step to increase Canada’s involvement in the sport. “As we prepare to host the Women’s World Cup under 21 at Lansdowne Park in Ottawa next year, we will have the chance to showcase Ottawa’s finest food, drink, hospitality and our most talented up and coming athletes,” the press release reads.

pressure of operating a recreational facility, since the partner company helps take on that responsibility, he said.

Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - The city is considering whether partnering with a company is the best way to get a new recreational facility built in Riverside South. Gloucester-South Nepean Coun. Steve Desroches has been championing the idea of studying a public-private partnership for a new rec centre, which got the finance and economic development committeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nod on May 6. The centre would be a larger, districtlevel recreational facility that would serve the larger area, including Leitrim and Greely. The area will become home to thousands more people before the city gets around to building the rec centre, which is in the community design plan for the area, Desrroches said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still several years out. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re seeing a situation where the growth is putting pressure on existing facilities,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a way I think we can get going on a facility sooner rather than later,â&#x20AC;? the councillor said. A recreational facility of that scale could cost more than $60-million to build, Desroches said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big-ticket item,â&#x20AC;? he said. Partnering with a private company also alleviates some of the ongoing budget

Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re seeing a situation where the growth is putting pressure on existing facilities.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we want to try to deal with the pressures on our budgets, we should be looking at innovative ways to deliver city services,â&#x20AC;? he said. There are already three similar â&#x20AC;&#x153;P3â&#x20AC;? recreational facilities in Ottawa: the Bell Sensplex in Kanata, the Cavanagh Sensplex in West Carleton and the Richcraft Sensplex in the east end, set to open this August. The partnerships are innovative, Desroches said. They offer programming and ice availability from everything from little league ringette to menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hockey leagues. Desroches said the city has seen success through those partnerships with the Capital Sports Management Group, which is owned by Senators Sports and Entertain-

ment. But if the city chose to pursue a P3 to build a new rec centre, it would go through a competitive bidding process. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a little early to identify a partner,â&#x20AC;? Desroches said. I think we need to see if this is a concept that has viability. I think it does. Given the success weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen in other areas, the model should work in south Ottawa.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unlikely the city would find a partner willing to help fund building a pool, which is a costly endeavour, Desroches said. The facility would likely have at least two ice rinks â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or more, if the partner company was willing to put up the money. The city hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t made detailed plans of what the facility could include. Residents in the community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; especially fellow hockey parents â&#x20AC;&#x201C; have been asking Desroches about when a new facility might be coming. The areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s development is now at a stage where the need is becoming more urgent, Desroches said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The goal is really to build a community thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sustainable, (so) that we have the services and the facilities within the community so that people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to travel outside the community to do this,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My first priority when I was elected was to deal with the roads and the transit and the bridge. Now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to start on the next chapter, which is the recreational services.â&#x20AC;?

Greenboro library branch going high-tech New radio-frequency identification technology to improve efficiency Erin McCracken erin.mccracken@metroland.com

News – The Ottawa Public Library’s Greenboro branch is undergoing a high-tech facelift that will result in an eight-day closure during the last week in June and the first week in July. The branch was first closed last week on May 15 and 16 to allow contractors to set up shop, and begin work on retrofitting the branch with radio-frequency technology – the fifth one to receive the upgrades. Construction and design changes at the branch are billed at almost $117,000. Greenboro is the first to be retrofitted this year, with six more branches slated for hightech changes later this year, at a total cost of $1.86 million. These branches include Beaverbrook, Cumberland, Greely, Rockcliffe Park, Carlingwood and Main. Hazeldean was the first to be upgraded in 2012, and Em-

erald Plaza, Alta Vista and Nepean Centrepointe followed suit in 2013. The radio-frequency equipment at the first 11 branches is costing the library $2.5 million, and 22 more branches in the system will receive the technology by 2017, pending budget approvals for each of the next three years. Users of the Greenboro branch will see plywood walls in place over the next month, behind which workers are installing an automated book sorter, new self-checkout units and security gates, said Richard Stark, manager of library facilities development. The gates, check-out machines and sorter will be able to read special radio-frequency identification tags already outfitted on library materials, from CDs and DVDs to books and other reading materials. The tags have replaced the previous barcode system. Library patrons will be able to place a small stack of books and other items in the

self-checkout units, which can scan the materials at once. “Certainly we can see the benefits in the branches we’ve already done, and we’ll see the benefits in the upcoming branches we’re about to do, and, of course, the public will see it too,” he said. Returned materials will be processed immediately, he said, adding that as library materials are deposited in book drops, they will move down the newly installed conveyor belt, be individually scanned and automatically separated into bins. “It used to be that, literally, staff would have to take these materials, then sort them in all the different categories, and then they’d have to individually scan them off the system,” Stark explained. With the radio-frequency technology, the material will already be scanned and processed, and staff will only have to put the materials on book carts and re-shelve them.

“So it saves a lot of time,” the manager said. “It gets stuff out there sooner for the public.” The technology will also allow library employees to more accurately manage inventory. “There’s actually a really big improvement in inventory control, because with this technology you can literally walk down the stacks with a scanner and just scan the books as you walk along,” Stark said. Though the technology is so expensive that it will take four years for all branches to receive the retrofits, it will represent a significant costsavings in terms of staff time. “It streamlines operations,” said Stark. It allows staff to be more focused on customer service and helping the public out on the floor, as opposed to spending a lot of time dealing with accounts and issues surrounding the material they brought back, because it hasn’t been processed yet.”

FILE

The Greenboro branch of the Ottawa Public Library will be closed during the last week of June to finish the renovations. Greenboro branch users will still be able to access the branch’s book drop during the

summertime closure, and rely on the nearest library branch, located at 2516 Alta Vista Dr.

Outdoor theatre looking for summer volunteers Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - Students looking to pick up some extra volunteer hours this summer need to look only as far as their local park. Odyssey Theatre is offering students the opportunity to volunteer at the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outdoor theatre in Strathcona Park this summer for a variety of positions. According to general manager Dana Uzarevic, regardless of any particular studentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interest, there is a job at the production house for them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are many different opportunities,â&#x20AC;? Uzarevic said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It always helps to get a few sentences to let us know what their interest is and we try to match it.â&#x20AC;? Everything from guest services to production is available, Uzarevic added, and there is typically no time limits to volunteering -- meaning theatre lovers can stay all summer, or those who are simply want to get their feet wet only have to do a two shifts of four hours. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have volunteer who do come every night and it becomes part of their summer. We also have many returning volunteers, quite a few of them,â&#x20AC;? she said. Uzarevic credits the interest in their volunteer program to the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outdoor, central location, which she said she believes offers students the

veryone likes to play games. The desire to unravel puzzles, solve mysteries and be the first to get to an agreed upon finish line is something we seem to be born with. In the 21st century there are all kinds of games to be played. The computer has replaced the way we do so many things from writing a letter, checking the weather and of course enjoy our games. The new ways are not all bad, just different. Given an opportunity to experience playing a real and not virtual board game, most people come away with good feelings. It is all part of enjoying playing with others. As children we experience the feeling of togetherness, having fun with our friends. Twice the Fun Games captures the essence of playing board games, card games and puzzles. The owner and operator of the online business in North Grenville, Boris Lysynski has a foot in two worlds. As a former electronic engineer he can appreciate the thrill of the virtual gaming world but as a life-time board game fanatic he also enjoys the different experience of facing an opponent in a live game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am a gamer,â&#x20AC;? said Lysynski. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want people to sit down together and have fun together.â&#x20AC;? In keeping with 16

his interest and enthusiasm for board games Lysynski is part of the North Grenville Gamerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Group, NG3. While Boris is growing Twice the Fun Games he is also sharing the fun with his neighbours. As part of the NG3, he has helped organize the first annual gaming convention â&#x20AC;&#x153;CoyoteConâ&#x20AC;? for North Grenville. In cooperation with Kemptville Campus, the NG3 will be hosting CoyoteCon on June 21. The event will be held at the W.B. George Centre. The room will be divided in two, explained Lysynski. One side will be ongoing live board games and on the other side will be sponsoring vendors. The always-popular Tri-Game-A-Thon typically sees 25-30 players and showcases: Ticket to Ride; Settlers of Catan and Carcassonne. The storeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s online presence has grown and now he feels it is time for a storefront. Twice the Fun Games has found a home in the lower level of the former Giant Tiger building across from B&H Grocers in Old Town Kemptville. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will be joining up with the Kemptville Crafters Market this May,â&#x20AC;? said Lysynski. Twice the Fun Games will be open Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the market. Twice the Fun Games can be found at www.twicethefungames. ca or for more information, call 613-702-6620.

plications up until May 15, Uzarevic said, is definitely a unique way for students to learn the tricks of the trade. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be a theatre professional, but just have to have a love for theatre or at least want to explore it,â&#x20AC;? she said. Uzarevic is in charge of the application process and encourages students to apply. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even though the deadline has

passed, I will still look at the applications,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we get a candidate that is really strong, we will make room for them in the program. I would also like to stress how much fun and what a fantastic experience it becomes.â&#x20AC;? Those who attend the program receive an end-of-the-summer honorarium for the work.

Annual walkathon raises thousands for addiction treatment Manotick News staff

News - An addiction and mental health treatment facility has received a boost this month thanks to hundreds of Ottawa walkers. Rideauwood Addiction and Family Services partnered with the Ottawa Police Service for the 14th annual walkathon, Footsteps for Recovery, on May 10. The event saw more than 200 participants and raised more than $45,000 for addiction and treatment help in the community. “We saw great participation from the community and Ottawa Police Service members here today,” said police Chief Charles Bordeleau. “It is important that we continue to support Rideauwood’s ability to continue their

great work for members of our community facing addiction and concurrent mental health challenges.” Located in Hintonburg, Rideauwood said it serves up to 3,000 clients a year for addiction, substance abuse and mental health-related problems. The centre also provides day treatment for non-violent crimes associated with addiction. Walking along a pathway from Britannia and Andrew Haydon parks, participants chose to either walk or run the five kilometre event, which was followed by a barbecue, face painting and music at the Ron Kolbus Centre. “Once again, we are touched by the community’s response to the walkathon,” said Rideauwood executive director Paul Welsh.

Local minister was a bit like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

T

he Minister, I thought, was like two different people. I had an unbelievable fear of him when he was in church delivering what seemed to be an endless sermon with words that were completely above my head. I had no idea what he was talking about, and when we left the service to go to our Sunday school class, I lived in dread that the Sunday school teacher would ask me what I had learned that day from the sermon. Thankfully she was high on the Beatitudes and the Psalms, and that was usually what our lesson was about. The Minister was a whale of a man, and when he walked down the middle of the church to get to the pulpit, his shoes squeaked like fury, which Emerson said meant they hadn’t been paid for. How he knew that bit of information was beyond me. By the time the Minister had climbed into the pulpit, which was a round carved wood affair high above the pews, he was panting like he was going to take his last breath, and winter and summer the sweat poured off his face in little rivulets. He frowned a lot, and I

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories always thought he was angry with the lot of us, or that he knew that some of us had committed some horrible sin. To emphasize a point, he pounded the rail of the pulpit with his bible that I was sure would one day fly out of his hand and hit me square on the head since we sat in the front pew, a few feet away. His wife, whom Mother said was a saint, sat ramrod straight, looking neither left nor right. Through perfect planning, Sunday school always ended at the exact time the last hymn was being sung in the church. Then we children marched back into the church, standing at the door where we were expected to shake hands with the Minister. This scared the living starch out of me, convinced that he could read my mind and he would know every evil thought I had ever had in my head about Marguirite, and know ever sin I had ever

committed. I couldn’t wait to get in the buggy and get back home to the farm. And often then, I would see another side to our Minister. I wasn’t sure if it was part of his duties as our spiritual leader, or if he just liked a good meal occasionally, but we could always count on a pastoral visit at least once every two weeks when the summer weather came. He didn’t own a car, but he did have a buggy, and an old nag of a horse that was much like our poor old Harry with the heaves. You could have walked in our lane faster than the Minister’s horse pulling the buggy. And he always came at our dinner time at noon. Mother would pump his hand, welcome him in, and my sister Audrey, without even being asked, would scrunch up the plates on the table, and make room for another place. Mother made no effort to tidy things up, or make the

meal more fancy. We didn’t even get out the dishes that had come in puffed wheat. The only change was Mother sat between my sister Audrey and me, leaving the end of the table for the Minister. Father, of course, sat where he always did, at the other end. And instead of Father saying Grace, the Minister, on

tea into his saucer to cool it off, and then drinking it. And as soon as the meal was over, Father got up from the table, Minister or not, and headed back out to the fields. Always, I knew what was going to happen next. Audrey would be sent to the smoke house and the chicken

The Minister was a whale of a man, and when he walked down the middle of the church to get to the pulpit, his shoes squeaked like fury... Mother’s invitation said the blessing, which was long and purposeful. Then I would see an entirely different man from the one I saw in the Lutheran church on Sunday. He and Father told jokes, slapping the table with the palm of their hands, and all the time, he was amply lading his plate with seconds and even third helpings of everything before him, which pleased Mother beyond words. Even a visitor the stature of the Minister, didn’t stop Father from pouring out his

coop. She would come back with a roast and a link or two of sausages, and a small basket of fresh eggs. Everett would, without asking, have cornered a fowl, pushed it squawking into a grain sack, and everything would be put in the Minister’s buggy. The Minister would pump Mother’s hand, ruffle my hair, tell Audrey again how she was growing into a fine young woman, and my three brothers that he would see them in church, and then with great effort he would climb into the buggy, and the old

horse without any direction from his owner, would turn in the yard and head out the lane. Audrey and I would help Mother clean up the kitchen and she would tell us how poor the Minister was, and how little he was paid, and that often he and his wife didn’t have enough money to buy food, and how they would rely on the generosity of the members of the Lutheran church to survive. I knew the Depression was all around us, but I didn’t know anyone out in the country who didn’t have enough food for their table. I would watch the buggy disappear into the farthest reaches of the lane, and I would think again how the Minister was like two different people. The stern, nononsense man in the pulpit on a Sunday, and then there was the man who could laugh and mingle with the common folk around a kitchen table.

Police constable finishes run to Toronto

Andrew Rosbrook completes 470-km â&#x20AC;&#x153;New Life Mikey Marathonâ&#x20AC;? one year after his heart stopped beating News - Toronto police Const. Andrew Rosbrook of 54 Division, completed a 470km run from Ottawa to Toronto in eight days, this past Monday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It only took a year to finally happen,â&#x20AC;? he said, at the Ontario Place finish line. Family, fellow Toronto Police Service and Toronto Emergency Medical Service officers and friends joined Rosbrook, 48, for the last leg of his run from Scarborough to Torontoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ontario Place. Last Tueday afternoon he passed through Manotick, on his way to Kemptville. Just after 6 p.m. on May 12, Rosbrook completed his â&#x20AC;&#x153;New Life Mikey Marathonâ&#x20AC;? by crossing the Goodlife Fitness finish line â&#x20AC;&#x201C; one year and one week after he was clinically dead. On May 5, 2013, Rosbrook was within sight of the finish line of Torontoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual spring half-marathon when he suffered a sudden cardiac arrest. He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remember the event; in fact, after hitting about the

15-km mark, he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remember anything until he awoke at St. Michaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital hours later, with a second chance at life and 10 stitches on the gash to his chin he suffered when he collapsed. Co-sponsored by Two Men and a Truck - Canada and Heathwood Homes, Rosbrookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;New Life Mikey Marathonâ&#x20AC;? celebration run raised awareness for the need for public access AEDs (Automatic External Defibrillator), like MIKEYs. About one year ago, it was the alarmed scream of a fellow runner as Rosbrook hit the ground that brought over Det. Laurie McCann, who was handling traffic detail nearby, and an off-duty physician there in support of his wife; a paramedic and a paramedic in training soon joined the CPR efforts to revive Rosbrook. In response to a radio call, two paramedics with a MIKEY arrived by bicycle, and administered a shock to the chest that started Rosbrookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heart and saved his

life after heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been without a pulse or a heartbeat for over five minutes. He was running again just one month later. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A MIKEY defibrillator played a crucial role in my survival and recovery, and my hope is that one day theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be commonplace in our society,â&#x20AC;? Rosbrook said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To help spread that message, I will run, walk, crawl or stumble 60 to 70 km a day to the finish line of the race that nearly ended my life last year.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our goal is to make defibrillators as common and as readily available as fire extinguishers,â&#x20AC;? says MIKEY Network chairman and Heathwood Homes president Hugh Heron. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That someone like Rosbrook â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a young, impeccably fit runner â&#x20AC;&#x201D; can suffer such a life-threatening cardiac event is precisely the reason why. This can happen to anyone, at any time. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re thrilled that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s here with us to embark on this run, and to help spread this vital message.â&#x20AC;? MIKEYs are portable, user-

Wesley Clover plans on making the grounds an Ottawa destination, not just for equestrian events but for large sporting events and music festivals as well. “We have been in talks with some festivals,” said Sparks, whose Matthews’ daughter. “People who are in that industry look at this as a really nice site to have that weekend-long festival feel.” The electronic music festival Escapade was mentioned as a possible event for the grounds. Currently the grounds are abuzz with activity. Fresh coats of paint are being put on the building and renovations inside and out are underway. Rubber matting has been added to, and rotting wood removed from the horse stalls, and new paddocks have been put up around the grounds. “The equestrian community always saw this as an un-

News - The equestrian community in Ottawa won’t have to hold their horses much longer. The Wesley Clover Foundation now leases the west-end Greenbelt equestrian park form the NCC, it was previously managed by the city. “It’s exciting, there is a real change coming,” said Karen Sparks, executive director of Wesley Clover Parks. “There is a lot of potential here — with the city running this land for so long, they just couldn’t quite capitalize on it.” The $20-million initiative to redevelop the equestrian park and campground properties by Wesley Clover, which is run by business magnate Terry Matthews, will run for over twenty years and also includes the creation of the Ian Millar School of Horsemanship, named after the 10-time Canadian Olympian. Though plans for the grounds are still subject to zoning, building permits and the approval of the NCC, the developers certainly have ambitious goals for the grounds. In addition to the “worldclass” equestrian event cam-

The school is not yet running classes but expects to be functional this summer. Some

students may one day be able to compete on the site in a major competition. “We have this site that is built to host international horse shows but we don’t actually have an international horse show,” said Sparks. The venue is already hosting equestrian events including an international dressage

show on May 28 and 29. The show was an annual event when the park was run by the city but was on hiatus while the park’s future was in question last year. Meanwhile the adjacent campground, which also used to be run by the city, are getting a shot in the arm as well with the addition of multiple

yurts —round, family-sized tents— for activities added around the grounds as well as new walking and biking trails. While the City of Ottawa signs still sit in front of the grounds, new Wesley Clover signage is on the way. The parks will be open to the public throughout this summer.

Community benefits: too little, too late? Councillors, community ‘disappointed’ by Section 37 payments Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - Two years of the city collecting “community benefit” payments from developers has left many disappointed. For local residents and for some of the councillors who represent them, the money coming in isn’t enough. Most developers aren’t exactly keen on the extra fee – or more specifically, how it is calculated. Even city planners are disappointed by how few of the rezonings the city approved since the spring of 2012 have qualified for the extra fee, which can be put towards small local infrastructure projects in the hopes of making an area more “livable” when hundreds of new people make their homes in new buildings – usually condo towers. Only six developments qualified for the extra payments since Ottawa enacted a policy to allow it to take advantage of Section 37 of the Ontario Planning Act, which provides a way for municipalities to collect

extra money from developers in exchange for more lenient zoning so they can construct larger, denser buildings. The planning department had promised a full-blown review of the policy a year after it went into effect. Two years later, there still weren’t enough qualifying developments to do a review or make changes, so the department issued a memo instead. “There simply aren’t enough examples to come to a conclusion on what works,” said Michael Mizzi, chief of development review for the city. The review has been rescheduled until the beginning of 2015. For Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs, it’s the money that’s not enough, even though her ward is home to the largest community benefits deal so far: $3.43 million for a planned Claridge development at 1040 Somerset St. W. One big problem in her ward is that residents think every development will qualify and result in community benefits. That’s not the case – the calculation is complicated, but

only rezonings that result in a relatively large uptick in density and therefore value would qualify. Still, Hobbs said the payments are “like getting money for nothing.” “It’s a bit of a gift,” she said. It can put a dent in the long list of projects that residents are asking for in Kitchissippi ward: pedestrian and cycling improvements, more green spaces or even a fund for community housing. But it’s only a small dent, Hobbs said. Adding a water fountain at Byron Linear Park alone will cost approximately $15,000, Hobbs said. With price tags like that, the community benefit money doesn’t go too far, Hobbs said. CALCULATING BENEFITS

Capital Coun. David Chernushenko had a different take on why the payments weren’t enough. He said he was surprised to learn that the average amount of money the city gets through Section 37 agreements is 28 per cent of the uplift in value from the rezoning.

THE MOVE! E K A M

“We certainly had higher hopes,” said Chernushenko, calling the percentage “disappointing.” “Someone is making a lot of profit out of it and we’re only negotiating crumbs from them,” he said. But Mizzi said between 20 and 30 per cent of the uplift value is a standard amount to expect for a community benefit payment. City planners don’t have a specific target to meet, but that range is generally where the negotiations with developers land, he said. “Success isn’t measure on your cash contribution alone,” Mizzi said. For instance, in the case of a Domicile building at 514-532 Rochester St., city planners negotiated to include threebedroom units in the building – something the city wants, since it allows families to live in the urban area in a range of housing styles and costs. Including those units meant Domicile paid less for the community benefit payment, Mizzi said, but those units are of huge value to the city and the community. “That ‘draw down’ is an integral part (of) achieving the broader goals of the city,” Mizzi said. “That is worth something.” Linda Hoad, a community association member and activist from Hintonburg, said the negotiations allow too much flexibility to reduce the developer’s payments. “It’s hazy to me and wide enough to drive a bus through

in terms of how it’s calculated,” Hoad said. Neil Malhotra of Claridge Homes says he sees the new fee as a cost of doing business. In fact, he said his company sees it as a positive thing because it helps Claridge contribute to improving the downtown and making the areas around its buildings attractive for potential homebuyers. Martin Chenier of Brigil had a different view. He said the fee is another way the city is squeezing developers. From rising development charges to the need to provide parkland or open space, those additional costs like community benefits payments end up trickling down to homebuyers, Chenier said. “If you take each of these components in it’s just a little item. Put it all together these are big increases that people are going to have to absorb,” he said. Section 37 has been a learning process in Ottawa, Malhotra said, but it could work better if everyone involved saw it as a basis for consensus building, rather than a consolation prize for communities that have opposed a development. Chenier was less enthusiastic. He said the discussions with city planners are not negotiations at all. “We’re just basically told that’s what it’s going to be. There is no way for us to say is that the right value,” he said. “They should make it a basic fee and not call it a negotia-

tion.” Before any of those negotiations begin, the ward councillor is supposed to consult with residents on what they’d like to see as community benefits if and when any Section 37 money comes down the pipes. From her experience and discussions at the Federation of Citizens Associations, a local gathering of community group representatives, the consultations with councillors aren’t necessarily happening, Hoad said. She said the councillors should have to provide a list back to the community of what they’ve heard and determined are the priorities. In Kitchissippi, Hobbs has decided the best way to do that is rely on the improvements and benefits listed in the six community design plans drafted for the ward. Those plans had broad consultation and represent the best consensus on what the community wants, Hobbs said. But as the city begins to act on promises of “certainty” in land-use planning made by Mayor Jim Watson and planning committee chairman Coun. Peter Hume, some are wondering if drafting the Section 37 policy was worth it. Taking advantage of Section 37 relies on uncertainty – it is the result of a developer’s request for something that in no way matches what neighbours knew to expect on a site based on the zoning and sometimes, the city’s Official Plan – the bible of how the city will develop and grow.

DIY arts fair offers something for everyone Workshops, food truck coming this year Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

Art lovers looking for the best do-it-yourself pieces need only look as far as Ottawa’s Minto Park on May 24.

Annual

Spring May 23rd to June 1st Just in time for Father’s Day!

R0012698342_0515

Community - A park in Centretown will be taken over by more than 60 vendors this weekend, all who have one thing in common -- a do-it-yourself attitude. The Ravenswing Arts and Music Fair will turn Centretown’s Minto Park into an arts and music hub on May 24. The event, in its eighth year, is focused on celebrating creativity in Centretown. Co-founder of the fair Sean Zio is working with fellow artisan Lauren Potosky to get things up and running this year. “Everything we do at the fair is ‘do-it-yourself,’” Zio said. “The vendors make their goods by hand, the musicians are local and independent, and the skill-sharing workshops teach people to be able to do more things on their own.” All the artists are local and Zio said many return year after year. “We have a wonderful group of vendors who come out to join us,” he said. Returning this year includes Yakety Yak Designs, which makes colourful oven-safe pottery; Purple Urchin, which makes soaps and scented accessories; Dianne Rodger Jewellery and Urbanite Jewelry, which make very stylish and contemporary pieces; and the resident fortune-teller Dot from Magickal Forest, which is always a popular table at the fair. In addition to the fan-favourites, Zio said this year they will also have a food truck, Lunch, onsite. For those wannabe artists in the city, Potosky said the workshops are the best way to get your feet wet. “We are offering three workshops this year, which we’re pretty excited about,” Potosky said. “We have two hands-on workshops, up cycled leather earrings and stencil printing.” Since the beginning, the fair has partnered with the Clothesline Project, a non-profit organization which aims to raise awareness of violence against women. “We had actually rented the park for Ravenswing before they made their application and they asked if they could join us,” Zio said. “We were very happy to have them join us.” Zio said the organization has brought a lot of awareness to the artists group and has received a lot of feedback from both vendors and attendees about the cause. The project consists of putting up display Tshirts that are created by women and children who have been affected by violence. A full list of vendors, the workshop schedule and additional information about the fair is available at ravenswingottawa.tumblr.com.

Quick loaf with crumble top makes great hostess gift Lifestyle - This moist and lightly sweetened quick loaf is fun to wrap up in pretty packaging - perfect as a hostess gift or to bring to a teacher or neighbour. The hardest part is deciding which variation to make, apple, pear or carrot, full-size or mini? Preparation time: 15 minutes. Baking time: 45 to 50 minutes. Serves 12.

Crumble-top: In a small bowl, combine the flour, oats, sugar, walnuts, butter and cinnamon and set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, salt and nutmeg. Make a well in the centre of the mixture and add the egg, buttermilk, butter and vanilla. Sprinkle the mixture with the apples and walnuts and stir just until combined. Spread the mixture into a parchment paperlined or buttered 23 by 12-centimetre (nine by five-inch) metal loaf pan. Smooth the top of the mixture in the pan and sprinkle it with crumble-top. Bake in a 180 C (350 F) oven for 45 to 50 minutes or until a tester inserted in the centre comes out clean. Let the loaf cool in the pan on a rack for 15 minutes and then turn it out onto the rack to cool completely.

Ingredients • 500 ml (2 cups) all-purpose flour • 125 ml (1/2 cup) packed brown sugar • 10 ml (2 tsp) cinnamon • 7 ml (1-1/2 tsp) baking powder • 2 ml (1/2 tsp) each baking soda and salt • 1 ml (1/4 tsp) ground nutmeg • 1 egg, beaten • 250 ml (1 cup) buttermilk • 75 ml (1/3 cup) butter, melted • 10 ml (2 tsp) vanilla • 250 ml (1 cup) diced apples, unpeeled • 75 ml (1/3 cup) toasted chopped walnuts

VARIATIONS

Pear-Pecan: Substitute pecans for walnuts. In the loaf, reduce the cinnamon to 2 ml (1/2 tsp) and add 7 ml (1-1/2 tsp) of ground ginger. Switch the apples with pears. Carrot-Walnut: Substitute 250 ml (1 cup) of shredded carrots for the apples. Mini-Loaves: Use three approximately 12 by eight-centimetre (five by three-inch) loaf pans and bake 20 to 25 minutes.

CRUMBLE-TOP

• 50 ml (1/4 cup) each all-purpose flour, large-flaked rolled oats, packed brown sugar and chopped walnuts • 50 ml (1/4 cup) butter, melted • 2 ml (1/2 tsp) cinnamon

Cooking up food skills at Norman Johnston Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

News – The stomach may be the way to a student’s heart. At the Norman Johnston Secondary Alternate Program, teachers have modified school hours, course schedules, and course offerings to give students life skills. A large part of that, is food. Thanks to a $50,000 grant to support the school’s healthy eating programming, teachers will give students even more exposure to nutritional lessons and cooking skills. “The goal is to become a hub of

healthy eating,” said teacher Sally Collins. The Norman Johnston school program has students work on one course at a time, intensively, until they are finished and can move onto the next subject. The program benefits a large catchment of students. The school draws from Orléans, Vanier and Osgoode. It’s a better path for most of the students, aged 15 to 20, who have struggled in the regular school system. Food and nutrition courses are popular at the school, which has a

small kitchen to allow students to complete the baking and cooking portions of the courses. The classes’ popularity can partially be credited to the fact that many of the students are already living on their own. “We have a lot of students who are living independently and we’re giving them the skills they need,” Collins said. The grant funding, from the Ministry of Education, will support several different projects and activities at the school, all of which will improve the access to nutritional resources for the 270 students.

All of the projects the staff and students are launching are sustainable, and should be able to run after the initial start up funding has been spent. One of the major projects will be a community garden, headed by teacher Lori Zuccato. “The main goal is just to have a lot of opportunities to be involved,” she said. The woodworking students will build the planters needed for the garden, and students will plant vegetables once the structures are complete. The goal is to harvest vegetables

in the fall, Zuccato said. The vegetables will find lots of uses in the other healthy eating projects going on at the school, Collins said. The healthy eating theme will be used both in food courses for school credit, and in extracurricular activities. Because students are only in one class at a time, they can take on longer projects in class time at Norman Johnston. It also means that food courses can take on a new structure, with students completing different curriculum elements throughout the year. A student could work on math for four days of the week, then attend a special cooking presentation on the fifth to chip away at the foods course requirements. Some of students come to school hungry, so it’s an added bonus when a class or special event produces a healthy meal or snack, Collins said.

Many students will take part in a special three-day overnight food camp several hours away this fall, and have access to presentations and workshops from cooks, Algonquin college staff and culinary students, and a registered dietician. The grant is giving the school a chance to “try everything” Collins said, in a wide range of forms that are accessible to everyone at the Blackburn Hamlet school. Student Lily Mitchell is enrolled in a Grade 12 food and nutrition course, and will also go to food camp in the fall. “I took it because I’m living by myself and figure it’s useful to know these things,” she said. “Also, I want to be a doctor so it’s useful information.” She’s already learned a few cooking lessons, like how to cook moose, from one of the special guest chefs. They’ll also have a new area to do it, as the school is using part of the grant money to build a new kitchen to support larger projects. The program funding was awarded this year, so while some of the projects have launched, more will happen next school year. Eventually, through community partnerships and a partnership with Algonquin College, Collins hopes that more cooks will be able to come in and teach the students how to cook nutritious and affordable meals. “These guys need to learn to cook with real food,” she said. “I want them to learn to grow and cook and eat healthy food, for now and for the rest of their lives.”

News – An Almonte man is the winner of a 1988 red convertible once owned by Canadian figure skating champion Barbara Ann ScottKing. Richard Swartman’s ticket was drawn on May 9 from 1,093 tickets, which each cost $100, in a fundraising lottery organized by The Perley and Rideau Veterans’ Health Centre Foundation. The first question Daniel Clapin, foundation executive director, asked Swartman when he called to tell him the news was, do you like the colour red? Swartman had no idea what Clapin was talking about, until the director spelled out the good news. “When we called him from the stage … you could hear his wife jumping up and down, ‘We won a car. We won a car,’” said Clapin. Scott-King’s Mercedes Benz 560 SL roadster, valued at $40,000, was donated by ScottKing’s husband, Tom King. Proceeds from the event, held in honour of the legendary figure skater’s gold-medal performance during the 1948 Olympic Games, will go to The Perley and Rideau’s Building Choices, Enriching Lives capital campaign. Scott-King, who passed away in September 2012, joined the campaign that same summer

as one of three honourary co-chairs. Retired general Rick Hillier and Ottawa philanthropist Grete Hale also hold the title. More than $2.5 million has been raised through the fundraiser to pay for the construction of two new Perley and Rideau apartment complexes to provide independent and assisted living accommodations for military veterans and other seniors. The total cost of the project, which includes a physiotherapy centre, and will one day feature a wellness centre and adapted gym, is $43.2 million. Construction on the facilities, which began in 2011, is now complete, and 139 people are currently living in the new spaces. The need for seniors’ accommodations in Ottawa has never been greater, said Clapin. “The (World Health Organization) is talking about an epidemic of aging here,” the director said, adding that too many seniors are dying alone without friends, family and other support. The Perley and Rideau Veterans’ Health Centre plays a critical role in providing for aged residents, he added. “We’re trying to maintain their independence for as long as possible. That’s what we’re trying to do,” said Clapin. “We hope you come here to live every breath to the fullest.” To donate to the Perley and Rideau Veterans’ Health Centre Foundation, please visit www. perleyrideau.ca/article/foundation.

Renowned Noffke buildings featured during Doors Open Ottawa 2014 By Jenna Guilbeault

Werner Ernst Noffke (1878–1964) was once a household name in Ottawa, but today he is largely unknown to those who are unfamiliar with our city’s architectural history. A German native, he was one of Ottawa’s most influential architects, and several of his buildings will be featured in Doors Open Ottawa 2014, a free event that celebrates the capital’s historically, functionally, culturally and architecturally significant buildings. Noffke’s interest in architecture developed when he was a young boy, and by the age of 14 he was an apprentice to local architect Adam Harvey, who was also of German decent. As his passion for architecture grew, Noffke went on to study at the Fine Arts Association of Ottawa. By 1904, he would celebrate his first independently constructed building, which became his own home. The oldest of five Noffke buildings participating in this year’s event was constructed in 1910 and is located at 534 Queen Elizabeth Drive. Currently, it is the official residence of the Greek Ambassador to Canada, but it was built for lawyer and Liberal Party organizer Andrew Haydon and was known as Haydon House. This marks the embassy’s first year in Doors Open Ottawa. Also featured for the first time is Powell House, built in 1913 for William Powell, who developed houses for the upper-middle classes in the Glebe before the First World R0012707659

War. Located at 85 Glebe Avenue, it is now the Embassy of Vietnam to Canada and is referred to as Vietnam House. Shannon Ricketts, author of Werner Ernst Noffke: Ottawa’s Architect, said “Powell House is one of the largest and most elaborate of his favorite style – the Spanish colonial revival – a style for which Noffke was well known in Ottawa.” Other buildings that will be featured in this year’s Doors Open Ottawa include the Embassy of the Republic of Armenia to Canada, which was renovated by Noffke in 1917 and 1922; the Mercury Court Building, which received additions designed by Noffke in 1930; Mother House Chapel of the Sisters of Charity of Ottawa, built in 1936 by Noffke, Lucien Leblanc, and general contractor Henri Dagenais; and St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, renovated by Noffke in 1948. This year’s Doors Open Ottawa will feature 130 buildings, many of which are not normally open to the public, including 20 that are new to the program or that have not been able to participate in over five years. History and architecture are at the heart of this event, and Noffke’s buildings have a big part in telling the city’s story. “Many of Noffke’s grand homes are perfect residences for embassies, because they offer such splendid spaces for entertaining and great detail in the staircases and woodwork,” states Ricketts.

Ottawa’s #1 Ranked Soccer Club

ADAM KVETON/METROLAND

Young at Art

OSU’s Mollie Eriksson invited to Regional Exceleration Training Centre (REX) Mollie Eriksson’s dream of making the women’s national soccer team (WNT) is one step closer. She was recently invited to participate in the Regional Exceleration Training Centre program (REX), a joint collaboration between the Ontario Soccer Association and the Canadian Soccer Association, aimed at identifying and developing Ontario’s “most talented players” on their path toward the WNT. Mollie, a member of Team Ontario, participated in the pre-REX program this winter, a four month try-out for the full REX. Traveling to Toronto every week was challenging, but well worth the effort. REX is a year-round comprehensive program in which high quality training hours are directed at working on the “right things”. Players are formally assessed and monitored by provincial and national team coaches to ensure they are progressing. REX players also get to train and compete with the “best of the best”. For example, Mollie trains with high-caliber goalkeepers such as Devon Kerr and Rylee Foster, members of the U17 WNT and REX. Mollie began playing soccer at the age of 4. She moved to Ottawa at age 8 and joined OSU as soon as she arrived. Mollie has always wanted to be a goalkeeper and has shown a lot of promise over the years. In 2012, she was selected from over 8000 players for Danone Nations Cup Team Canada, who competed in the 40 world team tournament in Poland. Mollie, the captain for Team Canada, was only 1 of 3 girls to participate in this first-rate tournament for boys. More recently, Mollie and her teammates won the 2013 Ontario Cup that was decided by a penalty kick shootout in which Mollie made 3 critical one-handed diving saves. OSU is very proud of Mollie’s accomplishments and wishes her the best in this next phase of her soccer career. We recognize the amount of hard work she has put into achieving her goals, and the role our coaching staff, in particular Shawn Edward OSU Force Academy Keeper Coach, have played in her development. OSU has partnered with REX in the delivery of technical training for Mollie. We are as committed as Mollie to making her dream of representing Canada a reality. Biography

Glebe Collegiate hosts CHEO fundraiser Hundreds of students participate in annual event Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - For the fourth year in a row, hundreds of Glebe Collegiate students will be knocking on doors in the neighbourhood to help sick kids. The annual Kids 4 Kids CHEO fundraiser, organized by Glebe Collegiate teachers Janice Bernstein and Katherine Caldwell, typically raises more than $17,000 in about three hours. All the money collected is donated it to the Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital of Eastern Ontario, and this year the students are hoping to raise $20,000 on May 29. Bernstein said all donations are collected by the high school students who canvass the neighbourhood. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The students take a lot of pride in doing this. For a lot of students, high school is their first time experiencing volunteerism,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a way they can learn about paying it forward and wanting to become civic minded residents all by simply by going door-to-door.â&#x20AC;? More than 500 students participate in the event. Each student, Bernstein said, will be easily identified with CHEO and Glebe Collegiate buttons pinned to their T-shirts. Students in groups in twos and threes go door-to-door in the Glebe,

Glebe Annex, Old Ottawa East and Old Ottawa South. Donations in amounts higher than $20 will receive a tax receipt. According to Bernstein, over the years the students have really embraced this fundraiser and many have even become leaders for the cause. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a team of about 30 students who help run the event,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great. The students really take the lead and do an incredible amount of work to get this going.â&#x20AC;? The unique thing about this fundraiser, the teacher said, is that typically door-to-door fundraising for the hospital is not allowed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the past, we would fundraise for cancer foundations, but every student has been to CHEO or knows someone who has used their service and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s such an important service. We reached out to CHEO to see if we could do something. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a great partnership.â&#x20AC;? The event, which begins at 5:30 p.m. with a barbecue and a pre-canvassing basketball game scheduled. After that, the students get to work, canvassing for three hours. The fact that the students are able to collect such a large amount of money in such a short amount of time is pretty phenomenal, Bernstein said. Local businesses also participate,

school, it truly has become a community event over the years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Community really comes together. Parents, community members everyone helps out,â&#x20AC;? she said. If residents are away during the evening, there is an alternative way to donate online at cheofoundation.

At this time of year, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not unusual to see teeny bunnies or squirrels wandering around alone. While stumbling upon a baby animal usually brings out the maternal instincts in all of us, spotting a baby animal all alone doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily mean heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an orphan. Many wildlife parents leave their young alone during the day, sometimes for long periods. The mother is usually nearby and quite conscious of her young. Also, keep in mind that despite their small size,

Watson’s Mill is one of 130 buildings that visitors can tour for free on June 7 and 8 as part of Doors Open Ottawa.

Doors Open to unlock 130 buildings laura.mueller@metroland.com

Community - People wanting to peek inside some of Ottawa’s closed-off embassies can hop on a bicycle and explore some sites on two wheels next month. For the first time, Ottawa Cycling Tours is offering a bicycle tour of embassies that are welcoming visitors as part of the 2014 edition of Doors Open, taking place June 7 and 8. The city-organized event, now in its 13th year, will make 130 public and private buildings in Ottawa open for viewing for free. In addition to offering a bike tour between embassies, Ottawa Cycling Tours is planning to put together self-guided tour maps to provide participants with pre-made Doors Open itineraries. Andrea Recht, owner of Ottawa Cycling Tours, said the maps should be available at RentABike, located at 2 Rideau St. where it meets Colonel By Drive. “I’ve always participated in Doors Open,” Recht said. “(On a bike) you’re outside the whole time and you can see how things are connected.” The bike tour and the entire Doors Open event will take place rain or shine. People can register for the bike tour by visiting ottawacyclingtours.com. There will be a yet-to-be-determined fee for the tour, as well as $32 for a bike rental if required. Recht is planning to partner with RentABike to offer bicycle rentals for people who don’t have their own.

Participants who would rather travel by more than two wheels can hop on an OC Transpo shuttle bus to travel between sites. New to the list of locations this year is OC Transpo’s integrated operations centre; the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year; the Ottawa Jewish Archives and the Embassy of Japan. Other locations include: government buildings, private businesses, artists’ studios and places of worship, all in both modern and heritage styles of architecture. Two popular destinations last year – the United States Embassy and the city traffic operations centre – are back on the list. Participants can tour historical relics at museums like the Cumberland Heritage Village Museum or tour scientific marvels like Canadian Space Services and CanmetENERGY, Natural Resources Canada’s clean-energy facility. A full list of participating buildings is available at ottawa.ca, or you can pick up a Doors Open event guide at any Bridgehead and at most Subway locations. The guides will also be distributed in the Ottawa Citizen and Le Droit on May 31. At city hall, a new set of interactive displays will provide information about city services. That event will take place on Saturday, June 7 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Last year, 75,000 participants viewed 124 sites. Since 2002, when the event began, more than 700,000 people have come out to discover interesting and prestigious local buildings.
