News - Const. Admir Minarolli has seen his fair share of drug-related crime. Minarolli has been an officer with the Ottawa police for the last nine years, with the majority of his time spent as a member of the force’s direct action response team and undercover. He’s also the community police officer for the Bayshore area. “About 90 per cent of the complaints when I was undercover were drug related,” he said. Minarolli was on hand at St. Mark Catholic High School on Jan. 20 as part of a workshop called Kids and Drugs: A Parent’s Guide to Prevention. The program was developed by the RCMP, but was taken over by the Ottawa police volunteer program a couple of years ago. It was hosted by the St. Mark parent council. Minarolli said high school is the time for parents to be

vigilant. Changes in behavior, including aggression, dipping grades or anxiety, can be clues. He said parents should also look for missing items from the house, which could indicate a child is selling things to pay for a habit. New clothes and electronics out of whack with the income from a part-time job could signal drug dealing, Minarolli said. “I had one 13-year-old at a school I worked at who had a debt list,” Minarolli said, adding a debt list is a compilation of money owed to a dealer. According to a 2011 study on teen drug use, the percentage of teens who have experimented with marijuana jumps from one per cent in Grade 7 to 45 per cent in Grade 12. “A lot of people say pot is not a big deal,” Minarolli said. “But because it has no patents, there have been no studies on long-term effects. We already know it affects things like concentration and short-term memory.” He also challenged the notion that pot is organic. “I have seen some grow houses and you have no idea what you’re going to find,” he said. “Just the environment some illicit drugs are prepared in would give me pause. I wouldn’t touch them without gloves.” It’s not just illicit drugs that are a concern Minarolli said. Alcohol and prescription drugs are regular issues too. See DRUG on page 2

Drug awareness makes a difference ley said. A Fentanyl patch has a gel that feeds the drug through the user’s skin. Minarolli said a group of teens may buy a patch for a $100 and cut it up to share. “There’s no way to tell how potent each section is though, so some kids will not feel anything. Then there’s the danger that others will overdose,� he said. Westley said teens using Fentanyl patches may have tinfoil all over their room. “We all know teens tend not to clean up after themselves,� she said. While Minarolli said Fentanyl use is dissipating be-

“Alcohol can be a problem because it’s socially acceptable and readily available,� he said, adding binge drinking can increase depression and suicidal behaviour. One parent who worked with clients who have opiate addictions, said Fentanyl and morphine are something to be concerned about. “We were getting teen clients,� Rachel Westley said, adding in the case of opiate addictions, parents need to look for signs of withdrawal, rather than a high. “The only time they will really seem straight is when they’re on the drug,� West-


cause of recent deaths and increased awareness, use of drugs like Oxycontin have increased by as much as 850 per cent in the last decade. He cautioned parents to keep tabs on any prescriptions they may have. “An 80 milligram pill can go for $80 on the street,� he said. The principle behind the workshop is to arm parents with information. The Nepean Rideau and Osgoode Community Resource Centre will host the workshop at their headquarters on Merivale Road on Feb. 20.

Community - Snowmobilers have a chance to ride for dad on Feb. 8. The Osgoode Snowmobile Club is hosting a 150kilometre trek from Metcalfe to Morrisburg, Ont. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a $20 registration fee and the funds will go towards prostate cancer

Trash the ash A 5-step New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan to quit smoking and win a car! Community - For many, the New Year represents a fresh start, and with nearly 16 per cent of people in Ontario being smokers and tobacco users accounting for 30 per cent of all cancer deaths in Canada, a popular resolution may be to quit smoking. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are thrilled to be able to motivate and reward individuals who quit smoking through The Driven to Quit Challenge,â&#x20AC;?

says John Atkinson, director of tobacco control and cancer prevention at the Canadian Cancer Society. Follow this five-step plan to help ensure that by next year, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be celebrating a smoke-free anniversary! â&#x20AC;˘ Know your reasons for quitting. While winning a car is a great reason to quit, there are probably many others. Write down your reasons for quitting smoking and keep that list with you so you can refer to it often. â&#x20AC;˘ Prepare for cravings and withdrawal symptoms. No matter how good your

year,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The turnout and how much we raise depends on the weather.â&#x20AC;? Last year sledders rode on behalf of the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada. The club raised $1,200. Stacey said the ride that raised money for Ovarian cancer research a few years ago nabbed $4,700. On Feb. 8 participants will meat at Mikeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Restaurant at 7168 Bank St. for 8:30 a.m. Fuel will be available next door at Snake Island Automotive. The group will leave at 9 a.m. A chase vehicle

will bring up the rear with a trailer in case of breakdowns. The group should arrive at the McIntosh Country Inn at 12495 2 Hwy E in Morrisburg for 12 p.m. A special lunch menu will be available, along with door prizes. Sledders will head back at 1:30 p.m. The ride is dependent on trail and weather conditions, Stacey said participants should check the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website for details. www.osgoodesnowmobile

reasons are for quitting, you may still find yourself craving a cigarette. â&#x20AC;˘ When withdrawal symptoms occur, remind yourself that they will only last a few days. â&#x20AC;˘ Get a little help from your friends. Research Ask a friend or family member to be your support buddy. You can sign up for The Driven to Quit Challenge with your buddy and can also call Smokersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Helpline to speak to a Quit Coach at 1-877-513-5333. â&#x20AC;˘ Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give up. If you have a slip, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t beat yourself up about it and

most importantly, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give up! â&#x20AC;˘ Reward yourself. Plan special celebrations on the anniversary of your quit date. Smaller, more frequent rewards prove to be just as beneficial. Made it to one week smoke-free? Treat yourself to a massage for your efforts. For your chance to win a grand prize of a new car, register for the Driven to Quit Challenge and stay smoke-free for the month of March 2014. Visit for more information.

Health centre helping rural youth get job experience Jennifer McIntosh

News - Rural youth have been getting a helping hand from the Pinecrest Queensway Community Health Centre. The health centre, in partnership with the Nepean, Rideau and Osgoode Community Resource Centre is helping youth aged 15 to 30 from Manotick, Greely and Osgoode to get employment. “We have found that there were some real barriers to employment,” Hany Ibrahim, a community developer with the centre said. The program only accepts clients out of school with barriers to employment like: lack of transportation, lack of education, or past encounters with the law. It runs 20 weeks and offers workshops on job search, interpersonal skills, training and certification. It also connects clients with employers.

Youth split their time between the workshops at the South Nepean Satellite Community Health Centre in Barrhaven and their workplace. They work 24 hours each week at their placement, gaining valuable skills and networking. “Between the workshops and the job, it`s fulltime,” Ibrahim said. Ibrahim explained it is similar to a paid internship. Employers only have to pay the youth .25 cents an hour while funding from the Human Resources and Skills Development of Canada pays the rest of the tab. At the end of the 20-week course, participants get a $500 honorarium. “It has been very successful,” Ibrahim said, adding similar programs have run in other parts of the city, but this is the first time the centre has focused on the rural areas. This run of the program is almost done, but Ibrahim said the centre hopes to offer a repeat once they secure more funding.

Day quit your day job Local comedians to raise money for mental health initiatives ennifer McIntosh

News - Felice Miranda is a real estate agent by day and a comedienne by night. The Barrhaven resident and member of Toastmasters decided a year ago to turn her hobby into a way to raise money for local charities. “I had always wanted to do stand up, so I thought it would be a nice way to do something good,” she said. Miranda worked out a deal with Pat Beauchamps, the owner at the Brass Monkey on Greenbank Road, to have a monthly comedy night. The club offers the space for free and donations at the door go to a charity. She said she originally gave all the money to Live, Work, Play Ottawa – an organization that helps to provide work skills to people with intellectual disabilities. Miranda’s daughter, 24, has an intellectual disability and mental health issues. “Live, Work, Play has really improved the quality of life for my daughter and by exten-

sion my quality of life, so I wanted to give something back,” Miranda said. Since the first comedy night a year ago Miranda said she has raised money for United Way Ottawa and the Mission. At the anniversary celebration, set to take the stage on Feb. 3, she wants to work with Cracking up the Capital, a local initiative that helps to raise money for local mental health initiatives. “I thought this was appropriate because my daughter has mental health issues as well,” Miranda said. The MC for the event is Miranda’s friend and fellow toastmaster Ari Schwartz, who has been with her since the beginning. More than a dozen comedians have joined the slate for the anniversary show and Miranda said she has never been short on talent. “One thing I have found is comedians are always happy to have a new audience to test their material out on,” she said.

Embrace the Olympic spirit


he Winter Olympics will slip, slide and jump onto our TV screens starting next week. Team Canada is ready, including a number of local athletes. And no matter the time of day, we can expect to see people across Canada pause when our hockey teams hit the ice. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a chance to get patriotic and cheer on our athletes, even if they are half a world away in Sochi, Russia. The Games are an opportunity to celebrate the best of us, even if some would like to cloud the events with violence and intolerance. The athletes come together to compete. They may represent a wide diversity of nations, but they are all human, and the Games should be a celebration of humanity: what our species is capable of accomplishing when taking on incredible physical challenge. In that way, the Olympics should allow us to rise above such abstract constructions as nations and states. All people should be able to feel a sense of elation when an athlete goes further or faster than anyone before, no matter what flag they may wave. Unfortunately, the Games in Sochi will take place under the cloud of intolerance, namely the threat of terrorism and draconian laws in Russia dealing with homosexuality. The would-be terrorists should know

that while they may make headlines if they strike in Sochi, they will not make any friends anywhere on Earth if they do so. Athletes and other visitors to Sochi who may be gay or openly support gay rights have received some assurance that they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be mistreated. Misguided and prejudicial opinions wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be changed overnight, but we can hope that the Russian people will learn that GLBTTQ community is no threat to anyone. The Olympic Games have long been a beacon of human diversity, such as the accomplishments of African American Jesse Owens in Berlin in 1936, winning four gold medals during a Games Hitler had hoped would be a celebration of his twisted ideology. Loveable underdogs like British ski jumper Eddie â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Eagleâ&#x20AC;? Edwards and the Jamaican bobsled team at the 1988 Olympics in Calgary showed the world about courage in the face of adversity and the determination to compete despite the odds. In this light, we should all strive to ensure that the athletes and their incredible efforts are what we remember about two weeks in Sochi. If we celebrate their accomplishments alongside the Olympic spirit, hopefully the world will bring a valuable, powerful message to the people of Russia during the month of February.

Turning personal trials, tribulations into teachable moments


here are lots of teachable moments in the headlines. If you want your kids to learn something about addictions and their power, the newspaper is the place to look. Here is Father Joseph LeClair, once a popular and respected figure in Ottawa, pleading guilty to defrauding his church of more than $100,000, because he needed the money to finance a gambling addiction. Court was told that a drinking problem was also a factor. Here is the flushed face of the mayor of Toronto, Rob Ford, emerging once again in videos. After vowing to swear off the booze in November and managing to stay out of trouble for a couple of months, Ford catches the all-seeing eye of someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s camera phone while engaged in conversation that many find offensive. He admits he was drinking again. The lesson is not that Rob Ford and Father Joe are the same. Clearly they are not. Father Joe is a man who helped countless people and stumbled because of weakness; Ford is a man who mostly just stumbled. But what unites them is that neither was able to fight off the demon of addiction. The teachable thing is that, on the surface, both should have been able to. We look at

highest offices in this country. He had influence in the corridors of power and adulation from a sizeable section of the electorate. He looked like he could be re-elected. Why would he throw that away? Being loved and successful didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t keep the demon away from either man. We think of people who become addicts as people who are lost, who have no purpose in life, nothing to believe in. Yet Father Joeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s every waking, non-gambling moment was full of purpose, full of belief. You could not help as many people as he did without a strong belief, a strong sense of purpose. Ford, in his way, had a purpose. He said he wanted to cut their taxes, make their lives better. He answered their phone calls. His constituents treated him like a rock star whenever he appeared. Yet he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t keep from destroying his career and with it everything he believed in. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s some powerful stuff that makes you do all that to yourself. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what you teach your kids. Both men have a chance to drive the lesson home by redeeming themselves. Father Joe, because he has owned up to his wrongdoing, is a lot closer to redemption than the mayor

of Toronto is. But Ford will get his chance too. A famous person who can demonstrate a good life after addiction is doing society a big favour. The rest of us can help too, not just by exhibiting the usual personal kindness, but also by not making it too easy for others to follow along the same tortured road. That doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just mean stopping the spread of casinos â&#x20AC;&#x201C; although heaven knows that would help. It also means making an effort to understand what addiction is, how it happens and how to prevent it. Then we can teach all that to our kids.

Metcalfe French program gaining popularity

Hope Side Road-Old Richmond-West Hunt Club Corridor Notice of Completion and Filing of Environmental Study Report

Jennifer McIntosh

News - Parents interested in sending their children to middle French immersion at Metcalfe Public School attended an information session at the school on Jan. 23. The school has been offering the program for three years and enrolment is good, according to school council chair Kim Sheldrick. “It’s almost equal in enrolment to the English program,” she said. Sheldrick said. “It has been growing every year since it was implemented. Parents enjoy having the program.” Sheldrick said living in the capital region makes French immersion an important consideration for parents because of future job prospects. Castor Valley Elementary School has also begun offering the program in the last couple of years – a growing trend among the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board. There were 2,329 students who started French immersion in Grade one in 2007 and that number continues to climb, according to figures from the board. Middle French immersion was designed as a way to accommodate students who couldn’t start extended French earlier in their academic career. There are currently seven locations throughout the city where the program is offered. “We are a bilingual culture,” Sheldrick said.

The City of Ottawa has completed the Class Environmental Assessment (EA) Study for the Hope Side Road-Old Richmond-West Hunt Club Corridor from Terry Fox Drive/ Eagleson Road to Highway 416.

Care for your feet and legs during travel and prolonged periods of inactivity Did you know that travel – and other prolonged periods of inactivity from standing or sitting – can have a negative impact on the health of your feet and legs? Fortunately, there are steps you can take to safeguard against those lengthy times of inactivity, with one particularly satisfying solution! When you travel or are otherwise inactive for long periods of time, such as for five hours or more, the time that you spend sitting without stretching or exercising can have a detrimental effect on your feet and legs. Sitting for extended periods in a confined space doesn’t allow you to move your leg muscles, and these are the same muscles that help the blood make its way back to the heart. As the hours of inactivity wear on, that period of dormancy slows the blood’s circulation, which can result in discomfort, swelling, and pain in the legs, feet and ankles. The longer you are confined without being able to move and stretch, the worse you are likely to feel. Serious health consequences can occur from such extended times of idleness. Remedies to inactivity during travel and other lengthy durations of sitting can simply include making efforts to move and stretch periodically, such as walking the aisles while onboard planes and trains. Other precautions include drinking fluids, particularly when flying; avoiding alcohol; trying not to sit in the same position overly long; and wearing comfortable clothes and shoes as opposed to tight-fitting clothing and uncomfortable footwear like high heels.

There also happens to be a surprising and wonderful solution that can help alleviate all those unpleasant effects of prolonged inactivity to your feet and legs: compression stockings! Compression stockings apply gradient compression to the legs. Gradient compression helps induce blood flow, which in turn prevents the swelling and discomfort that can occur in your feet and legs during lengthy periods of inactivity. Compression stockings also help with the control of varicose veins, venous disease, and lymphedema disorders. If you travel or have tired, aching legs because of too much time spent standing or sitting, solutions await you at BioPed Foot & Lower Limb Care locations/locations.asp?id=46 where you will find custom orthotics, footwear, lower limb bracing and compression stockings http://www.bioped. com/products/compression_ stockings.asp. BioPed brings you to experts in orthotics, footwear and pedorthic care. BioPed certified pedorthists specialize in assessing and providing non-surgical treatment for conditions related to the functions and health of your feet and lower limbs. BioPed pedorthists can fit men and women of all shapes and sizes with medical grade or over-the-counter compression products. Of particular interest, BioPed sells JOBST® brand compression stockings. JOBST® is a world leader in medical gradient compression garments and is ideal for

wearing while on the plane or other situations that have you sitting or standing for prolonged periods of time. Whether for business, sport or casual attire, at BioPed, you’ll discover a fine selection of colours and styles of compression stockings to suit your needs and preferences.

Perley-Rideau goes for the gold in new lottery Sabine Gibbins

News - Imagine cruising down Elgin Street in a shiny red Mercedes Benz with the top down in the heat of the summer. But not just any regular Mercedes Benz – Barbara Ann Scott-King’s vintage roadster, a 25-year-old classic car which is, for the time being, in the hands of the Perley and Rideau Veterans’ Health Centre Foundation. The organization is raffling off the late Olympic winner’s most prized possession in a lottery to raise funds for their capital campaign, said foundation executive director Daniel Clapin. This is a one-time only lottery, he said. The lucky winner will drive away with the 1988 Mercedes Benz 560 SL.

Best Buy CORRECTION NOTICE NEWSPAPER RETRACTION FOR THE BEST BUY JANUARY 24 CORPORATE FLYER In the January 24 flyer, page 6, the Nikon 50mm F1.8G Portrait Lens (WebCode: 10171256) was advertised with an incorrect price. Please be advised that the lens should be $229.99, NOT $99.99. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused our valued customers.

FUTURE SHOP CORRECTION NOTICE NEWSPAPER RETRACTION FOR THE FUTURE SHOP JANUARY 24 CORPORATE FLYER In the January 24 flyer, page 20, the Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa Blu-ray Combo (WebCode: M2209595) was advertised with a bonus SteelBook, when unfortunately this Blu-ray combo does not come with a SteelBook, but instead comes with a bonus disc. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused our valued customers.

It’s a way to honour the figure skating champion posthumously, he added, and to pay homage to the commitment and dedication she demonstrated towards the Perley and Rideau Veterans’ Health Centre. Only 1,948 lottery tickets will be sold at a cost of $100 each. The number of lottery tickets sold is significant because it commemorates the year she won the European, world, and gold Olympic titles in just a sixweek period, said Clapin. Scott-King won the Canadian championships from 1944 until 1948, claimed the North American championships from 1945 to 1948, the European championships in 1947 and 1948, and the world championships in 1947 and 1948. She was only 19 when she won the world championships in 1948, said Clapin. To recognize her achievements, the city presented Scott with the red convertible in 1947, but after Olympic officials cautioned that the gift could pose a risk to her athletic ranking, she returned the vehicle to the city. But the city gave her the car back during a ceremony after she won the Olympic gold, according to the website. To this day, she remains the only person to hold all championship titles, including the Olympic gold medal, all at once, said Clapin. “Her record was never surpassed,”


Dan Clapin, executive director of the Perley and Rideau Veterans’ Health Centre Foundation, sits behind the wheel of Barbara Ann ScottKing’s vintage Mercedes Benz. The car will be raffled off in a lottery, which seeks to raise funds for the health centre’s capital campaign. he said. The car itself was transported from Florida, where Scott-King’s widow, Tom King, continued to reside. After Scott-King passed away in September 2012, King contacted the foundation the year after to donate the roadster to the hospital, said Clapin. “Barbara would have wanted the hospital to have it,” he said. The draw is set to take place on her birthday; May 9.


Clapin said Scott-King’s connection to the centre and foundation is everlasting, and dates back to when her father fought in the First World War. In 2012, she accepted an invitation to act as honourary co-chair for the centre’s Capital Campaign for the new independent and assisted living project currently underway at the health centre, but long before the announcement, she would visit the health centre’s residents on her trips

from her Florida home, said Clapin. Scott-King, who was known for wearing bright colours such as red and for her flamboyant personality, said Clapin, lovingly called the car her “Bennie”. With a vibrant signal red base colour and brown tan leather interior, the car is still safe and reliable to drive after undergoing emissions and safety tests, he added. The vehicle’s value is $40,000. Currently, the vehicle is at the Perley-Rideau, but will be displayed somewhere else in the city in order to gain more exposure and interest from the greater community, Clapin said. Just like the vehicle’s late owner, “Bennie” is petite, fast, and delicate, he added. Clapin said they hope to inspire people to become involved in supporting the health centre and to follow Scott-King’s example in living life to the fullest. “When you come to the PerleyRideau, you don’t come here to die – you come here to live,” he said. The Perley-Rideau recently expanded their programs and services to introduce a Seniors Village. The project aims to assist seniors in their homes with programs available at the Perley-Rideau Russell Road location. The village also includes apartments for independent living with assisted-living services, as well as a health-care centre with programs designed for long-term care and specialized programs. For more information on the lottery call 613-526-7173 or visit www.

The things that would make Mary happy could fill a book


Don’t Miss This Winter Tradition! Feb. 19—23 Canadian Tire Centre



Manotick News EMC - Thursday, January 30, 2014

t was unusual for Miss Crosby to break with routine, but that Friday the snow was coming down so heavily, we couldn’t see the barns when we got up in the morning, and that had a lot to do with her changing our usual afternoon school day work. Parents would be coming with sleighs and cutters to take us home, which in itself was unusual. The weather had to be pretty fierce to warrant a ride to or from the Northcote School! So Miss Crosby announced after recess, we all could put our books away, keeping out only our grammar notebooks. We had at least an hour to put in. Miss Crosby said, to cheer us up on that cold and blustery Friday, we were to write (or in my case, print), all the things we could think of that made us happy. I gathered seeing Marguirite falling flat on her face was not exactly what Miss Crosby had in mind. She also said, we were to take our grammar books home to finish up our lists as homework. I could see the senior pupils writing with great speed, whereas it took me forever to print my very first line in my scribbler. I had absolutely no trouble coming up with the very first thing that made me happy on a winter’s day, especially on that particular Friday. Father would be coming with the flatbottom sleigh, I would be sitting in the very front with him, wrapped in the fur blanket he would toss in before leaving the barns. I would be listening to the sleigh bells hanging around the necks of King and Queen as they plop-plopped through the deep snow. I thought, back then, that the sleigh bells made the most beautiful sounds in the whole world. I especially liked them at night, driving in our long lane, or coming across the snowcovered Twenty-Acre Field. Often they would lull me to sleep, leaning against Father’s shoulder, and I would feel the utmost contentment and happiness. So sleigh bells headed my list. The smell of freshly baked bread when I walked in the house after coming from school simply had to go on my list, too. Seeing the high, fat loaves, lined up on the bake table, and knowing I would be able to claim the outside crust off at least one of them, caused my mouth to water, as I printed homemade bread on my list. Crawling into a bed that had been made up with fresh sheets taken off the clothes line that day gave me special joy and a great feeling of happiness. I would fall asleep with my nose crushed into the pillow to get the most benefit of the new smell, and wrap the sheet tight around my neck. The scent would stay with me until my eyes heavily closed. The next day, the wonderful smell of freshness would be gone, but that night I would have nestled into a sweet happiness of sheer joy. Listening to my sister’s sweet voice, singing softly at night in bed, brought me special joy. Walking hand-in-hand with my best friend

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories

Velma to the Northcote School -- girls did that back then -- and knowing in my heart we would be best friends for ever, that brought me joy. When Mother could take something out of the hand-me-down box sent from Regina by Aunt Lizzie, like a man’s suit coat, or a once lovely blouse, or a man’s shirt, take it apart and turn into something I could wear to school -- for me, brand spanking new -- that brought me happiness. I would feel such joy, knowing what a clever Mother I had. Just having a few pennies tied into the corner of my hanky, tucked in the very back of my washstand drawer, and thinking how rich I was, brought me a special feeling. I would handle it carefully, and one day I would take it into Walker’s Store in Renfrew and perhaps buy new hair ribbons, or walk down to the dime store and buy some butterscotch discs to suck on the way home to the farm. Such luxury back then when a few pennies could make the difference between feeling poor and rich. On a freezing Monday, knowing Mother had done the weekly wash, when I came home from school, I would know that the laundry would have been taken off the line to finish drying in the kitchen. Everything would be stiff as boards, with Father’s and the brothers’ long combination underwear standing like white soldiers against the wall by the stove frozen solid. The smells in the kitchen would be of freshness, and outdoors, and homemade soap, and I would sit and watch to see what piece of underwear would succumb to gravity first. I could never explain why just seeing the clean clothes, and inhaling the fresh smell of the frosty outdoors, brought me such happiness, but it did. I printed until it was bedtime. I would have a lot to share with Miss Crosby on Monday. Maybe I would get a little gold star stuck onto the page of my grammar scribbler. I went to bed thinking of all the things that could make me happy and I knew then the list would be endless. Even though there was little money for frivolity or luxuries, I had far more to write about than would fit into my grammar book. Interested in an electronic version of Mary’s books?

Recognizing and Reporting Child Abuse Child abuse has many faces, and while all abuse hurts, different kinds of abuse can hurt in different ways. Abuse is more than bruises or broken bones; abused children do not always show obvious warning signs of abuse or neglect. Regardless of the type of child abuse, the outcome can result in serious emotional harm. Make a difference in a child’s life; learn the subtle signs of abuse. The earlier abused children get help, the greater chance they have to heal and break the cycle. If you suspect a child is being abused or neglected, get help. Making a report seems so official and many people are reluctant to get involved in other families’ lives. Understanding some of the myths behind reporting may help put your mind at ease if you need to report child abuse. I don’t want to break up a family. Our priority is keeping children in the home. A report does not mean a child is automatically removed from the home - unless the child is clearly in danger. They will know it was me who called. Reports can be anonymous. When making a report, provide as much information as possible to assist in the assessment. It won’t make a difference what I have to say. If you have a gut feeling that something is wrong, it’s better to be safe than sorry. Even if you don’t see the whole picture, others may have noticed something as well, and a pattern can help identify child abuse that might have otherwise slipped through the cracks. While not all suspicions and accusations of child abuse turn out to be true, all deserve serious attention and immediate action.

Kenny Moore fends off the puck and a group of local children during a spontaneous game of shinny at Elizabeth Manley Park on Jan. 18. The Snow Blast 2014 event featured horse and carriage rides, a ‘Kid Olympics,’ ice carving, camp fire and smores, and skating on the local rink.

Lumière festival makes frosty appearance at Winterlude to all sorts of people and demographics,â&#x20AC;? she said. Handler said there will be multiple designs people can try - everything from easy to difďŹ cult. He said the community centre staff has been practicing making the lanterns themselves.

Michelle Nash

Whether you love the arts, or engineering its something that I think will attract a broad group of people.


Arts - For individuals not interested in skating or sliding during Winterlude this year, another bright opportunity is available. This year for the ďŹ rst time, Winterlude has partnered with the New Edinburgh Community and Arts Centreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lumière Festival to offer a unique activity - making snow lanterns. It will take place every Saturday throughout Winterlude at Jacques-Cartier Park. The centreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s programming co-ordinator Malachi Handler will be available to help families build their lanterns. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will be very interactive,â&#x20AC;? Handler said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whether you love the arts, or engineering its something that I think will attract a broad group of people. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something families can do together.â&#x20AC;? The Lumière Festival runs every summer during the month of August with multiple workshops teaching individuals how to build a lantern. The festival ends with the Evening of Light Celebration where people release their lanterns in Stanley Park. Handler said she was pleased to be taking part of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Winterlude, adding



Families are encouraged to come out to Jacques Cartier Park to make snow lanterns. Organizers from New Edinburghâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual Lumière Festival are taking part in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s downtown Winterlude activities. Snow lantern building will take place every Saturday of the festival. this is a great opportunity for the community centre to participate in its own way during the festival. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unique and will appeal

â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are some models that are snowball-based. The more traditional lanterns can be tricky so we will encourage the options,â&#x20AC;? Handler said. Groups can work at making a lantern together or each individually. The lanterns will be completely made of snow and water with the option to try making a lantern out of ice as well. The basic principal, Handler said, is to be able to put a candle inside. The quality of the snow available, Handler added, could determine which types of lanterns will be easier to construct.

Spice up dinner with jerk-style trout with apple-carrot relish Lifestyle - Sometimes purchased jerk seasoning or marinades (native to Jamaica) can be quite spicy. This recipe allows you to control the spiciness to your taste with the amount of cayenne pepper. Prepare extra spice rub to use on poultry or meat before grilling. Preparation time: 25 minutes. Broiling time: six minutes. Serves four.

• 5 ml (1 tsp) each ground allspice, pepper, dried thyme leaves and packed brown sugar • 2 ml (1/2 tsp) salt •1 ml (1/4 tsp) cinnamon • 0.5 ml (1/8 tsp) cayenne pepper (or to taste)



• 2 Rainbow Trout fillets (about 375 g/12 oz each), halved •25 ml (2 tbsp) vegetable oil • 2 cloves garlic, minced

Apple-carrot relish: In a medium bowl, toss the apple with the lime juice to coat. Add the carrot, honey, parsley, ginger, salt, pepper and cinnamon, and mix well. Cover the mixture and chill until ready to serve. Spice rub: In small bowl, combine the allspice, pepper, thyme, sugar, salt, cinnamon and cayenne pepper. To prepare the fish, place trout pieces, skin side down, in single layer on lightly oiled baking pan. Combine the spice rub, oil and garlic; spread it evenly over top of fillets. Broil for six minutes or until the fish flakes easily when tested with fork. Serve alongside the relish.

Apple-Carrot Relish: • 1 small apple, peeled, cored and finely diced • 25 ml (2 tbsp) fresh lime juice •125 ml (1/2 cup) shredded carrot • 25 ml (2 tbsp) liquid honey •25 ml (2 tbsp) chopped fresh parsley • 5 ml (1 tsp) minced fresh gingerroot • 1 ml (1/4 tsp) each salt, pepper and cinnamon

Lifestyle -The long awaited March Break will soon be upon us. Whether you are escaping the freezing cold or heading for the slopes, it is best to start your trek on the right foot. Since this is one of the peak times to travel, fleeing from avoidable predicaments of airport security is crucial to get you on your way. The Canadian Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA) has these tips to ensure security screening is a breeze:


Choosing the right summer camp Lifestyle - Are you in the middle of planning your children’s stay at a summer camp? Before making your choice, it’s important to ask yourself a few questions. Summer camps, day camps, nature classes and specialized camps are just some of the options open to you and your children. All you have to do is find a camp that will answer their needs and suit your budget. The length of stay, the quality of the infrastructure and the food, safety, programs offered, the training that the staff receives and the costs of registering will influence your choice. If your children want to spend one or more weeks in different surroundings, a summer camp would be ideal. Outdoor activities, hiking trips, excursions, cultural outings and meeting new friends will give them a complete change of scene. Nights spent in a dormitory or in a tent will be another unique experience.

Perhaps your children prefer to have fun with friends during the day and come home in the evening. If so, a summer spent at a day camp would be just the thing. They can join in organized games, go on supervised visits to tourist attractions and spend afternoons at the pool. The duration of this type of camp can range from one to several weeks. A specialized camp would give your children the opportunity of perfecting their knowledge in a subject which interests them. Sports, culture and the sciences are among the most popular ones. For a shorter stay, nature classes offer outdoor programs which are both recreational and educational. Activities are usually spread over a period of one or two days and include nature studies, climbing, water sports and wilderness survival skills.

Local gallery opens its heart for little art Proceeds from sales to benefit heart research Jessica Cunha

Arts - Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the Kanata Civic Art Gallery is inviting the public to create some little art with big heart. The gallery is hosting Little Art Big Hearts on Feb. 1, an event where people can create a small canvas of

artwork with a focus on love and hearts. “It’ll be interesting to see what people come up with,” said Judi Miller, a member of the gallery. “We’ll have little canvases for them to create their little love piece.” Member artists will create heart- or love-themed images on four-by-four canvases, with the proceeds from the sales going to the University of Ottawa Heart Institute. February is Heart Month, a monthlong campaign by the Heart and Stroke Foundation to fund research.


The Kanata Civic Art Gallery is hosting Little Art Big Hearts on Feb. 1. The free event invites the public to create a masterpiece on a four-byfour canvas. Proceeds from sales will be donated to the Heart Month campaign, which funds heart research.

The artwork will be hung at the gallery during the month of February, and visitors are more than welcome to hang theirs also, said Miller. The event, which takes place at the gallery located at 2500 Campeau Dr. in the Mlacak Centre, will run from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Feb. 1. “There’s no cost to paint a little canvas,” said Miller. “It’s free; come on down.

The Kanata Civic Art Gallery will host members of the National Capital Network of Sculptors for a ‘Best of Show’ sculpture exhibit, running from Feb. 4 to 9.

Capital’s top sculptors show off 3D works National Capital Network of Sculptors show off ‘Best of Show’ in new six-day display Jessica Cunha

Arts - A group of Ottawa sculptors will descend on the Kanata Civic Art Gallery for a six-day exhibit celebrating three-dimensional artwork. Members of the National Capital Network of Sculptors will take part in the “Best of Show” exhibit, which opens Feb. 4 and runs to Feb. 9 at the Kanata gallery, located at 2500 Campeau Dr. in the Mlacak Centre. “It’s going to be pretty neat, really very different,” said Judi Miller, a member of the civic art gallery. “It’s going to be a totally different looking place.” Patrick Imai, vice-president of the network of sculptors, was also recently juried in to the Kanata gallery. “We’re really excited to have him,” said Miller, who lives in Beaverbrook and uses a mixture of painting and embroidery to create her art. “That’s one thing we seem to be lacking in our gallery. “It’s something really different.” Imai, who lives in Orléans, said the sculpture exhibit will feature a variety of mediums, including clay, wood, ceramics, mixed media, stone, metal, casting and bronze work. “It’s all across the board, all different themes or types of work,” he said.

Imai began creating carvings as a youth, first whittling wood and now working with stone. In between he’s also created pieces with glass. “It’s an expression of who I am. It’s a part of me,” he said. “I’ve been carving all my life. I used to whittle; I remember being about 10 or 11 (years old) getting my first pocket knife.” Imai joined the National Capital Network of Sculptors – which boasts around 65 member artists from across the city and beyond – in 2010 to meet other artists and to learn how they use different materials. “It’s an opportunity to meet with other artists, see how they progress, how they approach it and how they work the materials,” he said. “I’m looking to others on how I can work the glass and the stone together a bit better than I do.” Pieces from around 15 artists from the National Capital Network of Sculptors will be on display during the exhibit and the public will have an opportunity to meet the artists during opening night. For event times, visit, email or call 613-580-2424 ext. 33341. “It’s an opportunity to see 3-D work, sculptural work,” said Imai. “Sculptural work isn’t well displayed at a lot of galleries; it’s an opportunity to see sculpture, an opportunity to buy a unique piece.” Miller said the gallery is looking forward to hosting a new event. “I’m always just happy when we get new people into the gallery,” she said. “People are often pleasantly surprised when they find this little spot hidden in a recreation complex. “We just hope it’s the beginning of a great exciting year.”

Hydro to get permanent east-end home Brier Dodge


February 1st & 2nd, 2014


News - Construction will soon start on a permanent structure for Hydro Ottawa’s Orléans facility, which currently employs 24 people. The building has been planned for some time, but was formally announced on Jan. 22 It has the capacity to hold more workers as the community grows. “This has been a really high growth area,” said Hydro One’s chief operating officer Peter Gregg. “As the community grows, we’ll add more staff.” The workers, most of whom are linesmen, work in a temporary structure at 3450 Frank Kenny Road. The new structure will be built in a field directly behind where the workers are currently based. It’s expected they will break ground later this year, and be fully complete in 2015 or 2016. The majority of the workers said they live in the Navan or Orléans area, and don t have to travel very far to work. Having staff close by means that they can respond to emergency situations faster, Gregg said. There is also a new transformer station being built in central Orléans, south of Innes Road and west of Tenth Line Road. The station will cost $33 million and will employ temporary workers for the construction. No permanent staff will be based at the transformer station.



From left, Hydro Ottawa linesmen Vince Cousineau, Evan Tait and Aaron Levere, all who live in the Navan-Orléans area, are all smiles during the formal announcement of the permanent structure they’ll be working out of on Frank Kenny Road. “It recognizes that a lot of growth is happening on this side of Ottawa,” Gregg said. WORK OVER CHRISTMAS

About three quarters of the Orléans linesmen had to work over Christmas because of severe storms across Ontario. Some were dispatched to Brockville, and others to Orangeville and Bolton, outside Toronto, said Jeff Weekes, provincial line zone superintendent. “We had a lot of problems ourselves, but if we aren’t hit hard, we dispatch,” he said. “In time of need, that’s when our staff shine.”

“The recent storm reminds us of the tremendous commitment of the people working on the ground,” said Energy Minister and Ottawa West-Nepean MPP Bob Chiarelli, who spoke at the announcement. MPP Madeleine Meilleur also spoke, and said GTA residents were leaving their houses to hug the hydro linemen who worked on Christmas to help restore power. A lot of the work that linemen do, sometimes in odd hours or after an emergency call comes in, goes unnoticed Gregg said. “I know you are always there,” he told the staff members at the announcement. “When there is an emergency, you are there.”

Pet Adoptions

TROUBLE (A164165)

BABY (A164166

Trouble and Baby are best of friends looking for a forever home together. They’re a bonded pair that arrived at the Ottawa Humane Society in December. These two-year-old male kitties are playful and sweet and enjoy cat toys and cuddles. They spend their days scampering around the cat pod at the OHS and especially like the tearing through the cat tunnels. Trouble is the social butterfly while Baby follows his lead but is a little more reserved. Trouble and Baby are special needs adoptions because they have a dental condition called plasma cell stomatitis. To meet Trouble and Baby and all the other animals available for adoption, visit the Ottawa Humane Society at 245 West Hunt Club Rd. or view the animals online at

Police suspect one thief involved in four bank robberies Adam Kveton

News - Ottawa police are on the lookout for an armed suspect they believe is responsible for four bank robberies in seven days. The series of robberies began with a bank on Prince of Wales Drive near Rideauview Park on Jan. 2. The very next day, the same suspect is believed to have robbed another bank, this time along the 1500 block of Bank

Street. These two robberies were followed up by another two on Jan. 6 and Jan. 9. Though the suspect was armed with a handgun, no one was harmed in the course of the robberies. While the suspect got away with cash from each robbery, police would not comment on the amount. Though Ottawa police say the number of bank robberies is not unusual, the few days it took to commit them is, said robbery unit Staff Sgt. Michael

Haarbosch. “It’s not unusual for somebody to commit necessarily that many bank robberies, but that’s a pretty tight timeline, so we don’t frequently see that,” he said. The Ottawa Police distributed photos of the suspect. Described as black, male, five-foot-eight to five-foot 10 tall with a slim, athletic build, Haarbosch said police are “fairly confident” the same person is responsible for all four robberies.

As the suspect fled the scene of the latest robbery, on the 700 block of Ridgewood Avenue, a dye-pack was seen to activate, meaning the suspect’s clothing or skin may have been stained with red dye. Though the police are not aware of any other bank robberies since Jan. 9 where this suspect was involved, they cannot say whether or not that is due to the dye. “The fact that we have put these photographs out now may have caused him some

He added that the evidence the banks provide is also very good, and that police have received some tips as a result. “We are confident that, given the evidence that we have at this point and the leads that we have, that there is a strong likelihood that, at some point, an arrest will be made.” Police ask that anyone with information with respect to these robberies contact the robbery unit at 613-236-1222, ext. 5116 or Crime Stoppers at 613-233-8477.

War Horse a smash hit with students

concern and he may pull back,” said Haarbosch, adding that the suspect could also be in custody in relation to something else, or in another jurisdiction. Though Haarbosch would not say how much money had been stolen, he said money taken during bank robberies is small considering the risk. “The banks have gotten very good at minimizing the amount of money that goes out the door, so there is not a lot of value in doing a bank robbery anymore.”


Arts - He may be fictional, but War Horse made a very real impression on students from Knoxdale Public School during an event at the Canadian War Museum. Children in grades 2 and 3 met the life-sized puppet the day after the stage show – War Horse – made its Ottawa premiere on the National Arts Centre stage. The show tells a story about the First World War with two horses as the focus. Standing well over two metres tall, War Horse is a hefty contraption, operated by three puppeteers. The movements and physical reactions of the puppet, along with the sounds the trio mimic, quickly have spectators convinced they’re watching a real horse. The three puppeteers had War Horse trot, whinny and rear up on its hind legs, delighting the students. The children had a chance to ask questions about the puppet, which has international bloodlines; it was designed and handmade in South Africa, tells the story of war in Europe and is now on tour in Canada. Students asked about the challenge of manipulating the horse, which includes a metal frame with bamboo cane on the exterior along with elastic, leather and a man-made material for the tail. At times, War Horses – and the puppeteers below – must support the puppet and a rider during the stage show.

Realistic sounds and the movement of War Horses’s tail and ears are key to its expression, and an audience’s ability to empathize. The kids learned that the puppeteer at the rear of War Horse moves the horses tail by squeezing brake handles like those used on a bicycle. One handle swishes the tail from side to side and one moves it up and down. One of the Knoxdale students didn’t hesitate when asked the best thing about meeting War Horse. “When the horse jumps in the air,” Sam said of War Horse’s demonstration of rearing back. He added that he knew a bit about the puppet before the museum visit, “but I didn’t know the horse was made of metal.” Teacher Jennifer St. Amant said the mother of one of the students is a coordinator with the production company that brought the War Horse show to Ottawa. “She started organizing in October (for the school visit),” St. Amant said, adding that the company donated many copies of the book War Horse to Knoxdale Public School so the children could read them before the visit. “I think it was a really great experience,” St. Amant said of the interaction between War Horse and the students. “It was really rewarding for the kids and now probably they’ll be even more intrigued to read the book.” War Horse ran from Jan. 21 to 26 at the NAC. The North American tour runs into the summer.
