Notification problems driving decision Laura Mueller

EMC news - Osgoode Coun. Doug Thompson wants Rogers to move its proposed telecommunications tower farther away from Greely homes. City staff agreed with a request from Rogers Communications to build a new antenna at 1536 Sale Barn Rd. that would stand approximately 70 metres tall. But Thompson wants to put that proposal on hold as he works with Rogers to try and move the antenna to a city-owned vacant piece of land at 6326 Bank St., just south of where Sale Barn Road meets Bank. Thompson said his main issue is the very minimal notification and

consultation Rogers undertook before it received approval for the tower. “They did go through the procedure but in my opinion they didn’t fulfill to the letter of the law what they should have done,” Thompson said. “In my opinion, they should have let the rest of the subdivision know.” There is a new subdivision nearby, but the federal public notification rules only required the company to inform residents within a certain area that included a handful of the homes on the outskirts of the residential development – but not their neighbours. According to Thompson’s assistant, Nick Randall, 10 property owners fell within the prescribed 210-metre radius and were notified by letter in October. Four of them showed up at the public consultation on Nov. 7, mostly with health concerns. The city can’t say no to a communication tower – that’s up to Industry Canada. But the city’s opinion on the location is considered by the federal department. “Industry Canada does make the final decision, but they do look to the city for advice before making the final decision,” Thompson said. Thompson hopes to make his plan happen by having city staff revoke concurrence for the Sale Barn Road location and delay for a month as the councillor tries to convince Rogers to adopt the new location.

Richard Taylor’s photo of a red squirrel eating a peanut in a backyard in Manotick won the Judge’s Choice award in this year’s Shiverfest photo contest.

Red squirrel gets ultimate prize Emma Jackson

EMC news - After a winter of free peanuts, it was the least he could do. A chubby red squirrel was a willing model as Richard Taylor snapped this year’s award-winning winter photo on his back deck in Manotick. Taylor’s photo of a squirrel eating a peanut won the Judge’s Choice category in this year’s Shiverfest photo contest run by the Manotick Village Community Association. This year’s theme was “I love snow” and 28 amateur photogra-

phers submitted their best winter snapshots to the contest. Taylor’s photo won the top spot from the contest’s judge, local photographer Greg Newton. Kaylee Heins’ photo of a bluejay (see page 2) won the People’s Choice award after receiving 37 “likes” on the association’s Facebook page. Taylor said his backyard is full of squirrels, but they aren’t often such perfect photo subjects. “He’s pretty shy; he doesn’t usually sit pretty like that,” Taylor said. He took the photo with a high quality point-and-shoot camera. He didn’t expect to win the con-

test; in fact, he said he would have placed himself about fourth out of the 28 photos posted on the community association’s Facebook page. He would have given first place to the photo of two Clydesdale horses pulling sleigh rides during Shiverfest on Jan. 26. “I’m just a casual picture taker with three rules ... keep a camera close, frame the (picture) and fill the frame,” he added in an email. “With that and lots of luck you get some good ones.” Taylor won a $100 gift certificate to the Black Dog restaurant in Manotick.

Ottawa hopes to sell books through library website New program would raise revenue for the library Laura Mueller

EMC news - The Ottawa Public Library wants to become the second library in Canada to let people buy – not just borrow – e-books. On Feb. 11, the library board endorsed a plan to partner with an e-book publisher to put a purchase button for e-books on the library’s website catalogue. It’s a way for the library to earn revenue since the library would get a percentage of each sale that started with the library’s website, which currently gets about 950,000 visits per month. “It’s a bit of a departure from our usual mode of service,” said Jennifer Stirling, the library’s manager of system-wide service and innovation. Customers already use the library to discover books they want to read, Stirling said. If an item isn’t in stock at the library, some people turn to e-book retailers or bookstores to purchase the item. But right now, the library

receives no benefit from serving as the conduit for that purchase. Launching a retail affiliate program, as it’s called, would enable the library to benefit financially from the role it already plays in helping people discover books, Stirling said. Library must still negotiate an agreement with publishers and vendors, so the amount of potential revenue is unknown. The library would likely receive between three and four per cent of sales that originate with customers clicking through from That’s a firm number set by publishers, but it didn’t impress some board members. “We’re acting as a sales agent. We’re direct advertisers,” said Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson, who sits on the board. “Four or five per cent is very low.” Stirling emphasized that the project is a pilot and it might provide insight that will help the Canadian Urban Library Council to negotiate a larger percentage jointly with other cities. But there is another benefit for the library. Publishers are extremely reluctant to sell e-book licenses to libraries because it cuts into profits, so libraries like Ottawa’s cannot offer

many bestsellers in e-book form, Stirling said. In some cases, publishers only make a small percentage of their e-books available for licensing by public libraries – or none at all. Ottawa’s library hopes partnering through an affiliate program will make publishers more open to providing e-book licenses. “The public doesn’t understand the challenge we face with digital (materials),” said Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder, the chairwoman of the library board. “Publishers are so threatened because we are a public library and don’t charge … so they are just not making (e-books) available to us.” Toronto is also planning to launch a “Buy Now” program over the next few weeks, said spokeswoman Ana-Maria Critchley. Toronto will receive five per cent from sales of both print and e-books from Indigo that originate through the Toronto library’s online catalogue. The Toronto Public Library’s website receives 1.6 million visits per month. Leveraging those visits could provide new revenue and give library customers access to a larger volume of material while still allowing them to support and invest in their library, says a Toronto library board report from last June.

Child Welfare aWareness Month The Canadian Association of Social Workers celebrates National Social Work Week to recognize social workers contribution to society. The theme this year is: “Restoring Hope: The power of Social Work”. Throughout the month of March, the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa (CASO) is taking this one step further and bringing awareness to all workers associated with child welfare. These individuals play an important role in ensuring children, youth and families of our community are kept safe and secure. They are involved with the planning and delivery of a variety of services, such as: family support services, advocacy, foster care placement, and child protection, to name a few. They seldom get the recognition they deserve, in fact, if things go well, we never hear about it. There are many committed individuals whose efforts have made positive changes in the lives of countless vulnerable children and families.

EMC news - A Manotick man is hoping to get unemployed professionals working together. Myles Frosst has spearheaded the Get Working Cafe, a peer-to-peer support group for professionals who are unemployed or underemployed. Each week, the group will meet bright and early on Monday mornings to share leads and skills and to help each other find suitable and fulfilling work. Frosst has been underemployed for the past two years, ever since he lost his job as CEO of the Agriculture Institute of Canada. Three months ago he began to research the kind of services available for people like him: educated, experienced professionals with an abundance of skills, but no one willing to pay for them. He found nothing. For the most marginalized unemployed Canadians, a host of services – government programs, non-profit agencies, community organizations and others – exist to help them find work. But for unemployed professionals – the comfortable middle class – there’s very little help to get them back in the workforce, Frosst said. What does exist is lead by career experts, which Frosst said may not be as effective as pooling resources with peers in the same situation. “I’m a big fan of support groups, of individuals working together to solve problems and find common ground,” Frosst said. The cafe will meet Mondays at 8 a.m. at St. James Anglican Church in Manotick. While he obviously hopes his peer group will be a success, Frosst knows he’s targeting a particularly private demographic when it comes to financial problems. “The upper middle class are not keen on advertising in a big way that they’re unemployed,” he said. “We’ll give it a couple of months. The goal is to get 20 (people to come).” The two-hour session would allow group members to share leads and skills, keep each other on track and support each other in their search. “One of the main things is the evidence that the others are not alone,” he added. Frosst said unemployment and underemployment among the professional class is not new, but since the recession it has worsened in number of people and the length of time they’re unemployed. “Jobs are just scarce at this stage,” he said. “People are holding on to them.”

Myles Frosst works from his “home office” at the Hard Stones Grill in Manotick. The former Agriculture Institute of Canada CEO is starting the Get Working Cafe, a peer-to-peer support group for professionals looking for work, which runs on Monday mornings..

Home inspections can prevent break-ins Emma Jackson

EMC news - Do your windows have proper locks? Could your prizewinning rose bushes be the perfect hiding spot for a burglar? Manotick’s community police officer Const. Arun Daniels wants home owners to answer these questions and more with a home secu-

rity inspection, which is offered free through the community police centre. Home security inspections allow community members to take an active role in making their homes less susceptible to criminal activity, Daniels said. At the request of a home owner, trained volunteers will visit a home – be it a house, condo, apartment or

other living arrangement – to assess how residents can make their home safer. The volunteers would assess things like the locks on all doors and windows, outdoor lighting, and problematic landscaping around your home. “People like privacy around their homes but that also gives someone looking to break and enter some privacy,” Daniels said. “If you can’t see

the front of your home clearly that offers opportunity for suspects to hide or work and you don’t necessarily have the eyes from people on the street.” The audit is based on a checklist, and participants receive a booklet that identifies safety improvements, provides crime prevention tips and promotes other crime prevention initiatives offered by the police service,

like Neighbourhood Watch. Daniels said the office is encouraging home inspections because several new volunteers have been trained in the program, rather than because of any increase in break-ins. Members of the public can arrange an inspection by contacting the local community police centre located at 5669 Manotick Main Street. It can be reached at 613-236-1222 ext 2314.

Environmentalist David Suzuki addresses a packed house at Centretown United Church on Feb. 26 as part of his ongoing Eco Tour with economist and author Jeff Rubin.

Suzuki, energy expert captivate Ottawa audience

Emma Jackson

EMC news - Despite a few setbacks before and during the event, environmentalist David Suzuki and former CIBC economist Jeff Rubin captivated their audience at Centretown United Church on Feb. 26. The lecture and book-signing event was hosted by independent bookstore Octopus Books as part of the pair’s Eco Tour across the country. Rubin is promoting his book The End of Growth, which argues that high oil prices will slow the economy while simultaneously reducing greenhouse gas emissions – both good things, he said. Suzuki complemented Rubin’s point with his idea that people, politicians and nations need to stop prioritizing human constructs like the econ-

omy and make clean air, water and soil our main concern. “In a city our highest priority becomes our job,” he said. “You need a job to give you money to buy the things you want. The economy is perceived as our highest priority.” He said society created the economy to serve us, and now we live to serve the economy: we are under constant pressure to consume to keep the economic engine chugging. “We’ve been afflicted with a terrible appetite for stuff,” Suzuki added. “We love to shop.” The evening was supposed to be moderated by CBC radio host Robin Bresnahan, but when she fell ill federal Green Party leader Elizabeth May stepped in at the last minute - a pleasant surprise for the many environmentalists in the audience. The two intellectuals, on paper, may not seem likely tour buddies. Rubin is the former chief economist for CIBC World Markets, where he worked for more than 20 years. Suzuki, a geneticist, is best known for his views on the environment and sustainable ecology. But the pair agree that humans can’t keep living the way they are if they

want to survive – and they both agree that a slowing economy is good for us in the long run. “When a real economist tells us we’re at the end of growth, I got excited,” Suzuki told the audience, joking that no one listens to environmentalists on such matters. “No one can tell him he doesn’t know what the hell he’s talking about.” Rubin said that while recessions and economic slowdowns “make environmentalists lament” because their cause is inevitably shunted to the back of the line, in reality a slower economy means lighter emissions and less consumption. Despite its success the event had its rocky moments. Minutes before the event started, an Octopus Books employee asked the audience to call 911 to remove a Sun News reporting team, who wanted to film the event. May, however, stepped in, shouting “Only Rob Ford calls 911 for media.” She asked the team to return at the end of the event for oneon-one interviews. Calamity struck again when Rubin fell off the raised platform that served as their stage. He recovered quickly and the lecture continued smoothly for the rest of the evening.

Don’t Let the Bed Bugs Bite

Common ways of contracting bed bugs include: - Staying overnight in bed bug infested accommodations like hotels and shelters - Buying or using infested second-hand furniture - Picking up infested discarded items, such as items that someone has put to the curb for garbage pick-up - Living in a multi-unit housing complex that has a bed bug infestation It is important to take precautions when you are travelling or picking up discarded or used furniture.

Tips to Prevent Bed Bugs While Travelling

When travelling, inspect your hotel room for evidence of bed bugs before settling in. Look for live or dead bed bugs, eggs, small black spots (feces), or bed bug skins. • Pull back all bedding at the head of the bed, near the head board, to look for evidence of

bed bugs • Check the underside of the mattress tag • Check the seams of the mattress and the box spring • Examine the back of the head board • Never place luggage on the bed • Examine the luggage stand and place your bag on the stand away from the wall • Do not place your belongings in drawers • Use a flashlight to inspect the closet for evidence of bed bugs before hanging your clothes • Place your shoes in an open area, not under the bed or in the closet • If bed bug evidence is found, report to management and ask for another room When you return home: • Inspect luggage and contents before bringing it into your home • Upon returning to your home, immediately unpack luggage in a location other than the bed room (e.g. bathroom, garage, mud room or foyer) • Launder all clothing with hot water and dry on high heat for at least 30 minutes • A soft bag (e.g. duffel style bag) is an alternative to a hard sided suitcase as it can be placed in the dryer when you get home If you think you may have come in contact with bed bugs during your travels, it is very important to watch and check for signs of bed bugs. Look for signs of bed bugs in the following areas: • Bed frames, head board, mattresses, and box

springs • Chairs and couches • Under area rugs and along the edges of carpets • Behind baseboards

How to address a bed bug infestation:

The best way to deal with a bed bug problem is through an integrated pest management approach, which may include: vacuuming, reducing clutter, steam cleaning, sealing cracks and crevices, washing and drying clothes at high temperatures, and the use of a trustworthy professional pest control company.

Put your Best ’Food’ Forward March is Nutrition Month, Ottawa Public Health is focusing on helping you make the best choices by providing you with tips on how to plan, shop for, and cook healthy, delicious meals. At some point, most of us have resolved to eat healthier. Yet, when we get to the grocery store, many of us run into this: • endless aisles of packaged food; • many choices of fresh fruit and vegetables often make for hard decisions; • tempting aromas of the bakery wafts through the store; and • deli counter offers ready-to-eat meals. How does one filter through all of these options to find the best food, for the lowest price, that can be prepared quickly and easily?

Plan Planning meals and writing a grocery list is a great way to save time, money and effort when it comes to prepping meals and shopping for food. Start by planning your main meals for the week. Have you ever made a list of your family’s top ten favourite healthy meals? Having such a list will make meal planning a breeze. Perhaps you’re looking for new recipe ideas? EatRight Ontario’s My Menu Planner will help you create a personalized menu plan, complete with seasonal recipes and a shopping list. Shop When it comes to grocery shopping, reading labels and comparing products is key to making healthy food choices. If ever in doubt (or in a hurry), it’s easy to seek out beautiful colourful food that packs a crunch. If you can, shop for fresh produce whenever possible - you’d be surprised by the extra crunch local vegetables provide! Check out Foodland Ontario to see when your favourite vegetables and fruit are in season. Frozen vegetables and fruits are also a great option and can be just as nutritious as fresh ones, especially in the winter months Another food group that might surprise you with its satisfying crunch - grain products! Let your nose follow that tempting aroma to the bakery where you can find delicious whole grains. Lastly, don’t forget the outer aisles of the grocery store. This is where you will find lower fat 1% or skim milk and lean meats such as skinless chicken and extra-lean ground beef. These items may not be

crunchy, but they are great tasting and good for you! Cook Most of us don’t have the time to cook from scratch anymore. Once you’re home and the groceries are unpacked and to speed up meal preparation, why not try using convenient food items like pre-cut and prewashed vegetables and fruit? To save even more time, try making larger amounts of food and plan to use leftovers for lunches and suppers the next day or throughout the remainder of the week. The extra ground beef could be used in tacos, on pizza or in pasta sauce. Thankfully, cooking from scratch doesn’t have to require lots of work or time in order to be healthy. Experiment to find meal preparation shortcuts that work best for you. Enjoy healthy eating throughout the month of March and beyond. Use these tips to plan, shop and cook your way to delicious, healthy meals for you and your family.

Bed bugs are small insects that usually hide during the day and come out at night to bite human hosts. Adult bed bugs are about the size of an apple seed and, because they hide in small spaces like cracks or crevices, are often very hard to find. As a result, you may have signs of a bed bug problem – bites around your face, neck, upper body, arms and hands that you notice after waking up from a night’s sleep – without having seen a bed bug for weeks. Bed bugs can be a nuisance, but it is important to know that they do not spread disease, nor do they fly or jump.

Don’t let respect for seniors lapse


here’s a lot of uncertainty in these fragile economic times. People everywhere are scrambling to make ends meet or formulate plans to secure their financial futures. Back in the 1970s we were sold a fantasy; the dream of a leisure society where one of the biggest challenges faced by municipalities would be offering recreational services for workers enjoying reduced work weeks and seniors lazing comfortably, with time on the hands. A few decades later, we face a far different picture. We have very little to celebrate. Now, workers who carried the hope of

early retirement are being told by the federal government that Old Age Security is changing and there are plans to up the retirement age to 67 years. Many can’t afford to retire early, or even at age 65. Last month, BMO reported that Canadians, on average, managed to save about $9,200 in 2012. And the average total savings amongst Canadians is $122,310. Some who worked hard all their lives will be unable to afford to stay in their homes. Others will be forced by failing health into long-term care homes. They must not be forgotten or shortchanged when it comes to federal and provincial dollars for services.


Not quite what it used to be CHARLES GORDON Funny Town


UNEDIN, FL. – Every old-timer I know says that spring training is not what it used to be. What it used to be was a few fans sitting around in the sun, flamingos flying overhead, scouts smoking cigars while they check out The Kid, the players hanging over the fence talking to the fans and handing out autographs. It was a lazy and informal setting and every fan wanted to be part of it. Maybe it was never like that. Maybe the past was never as romantic as we think. But what today’s spring training is like is bound to suffer from the comparison. What it is like now, in Dunedin, Florida, in the unromantically named Florida Auto Exchange Stadium, is a large minor league park in any city, with lineups, parking problems, reserved seats and overpriced coffee. Florida Auto Exchange Stadium, where the Toronto Blue Jays practice, reminds you quite a bit of Lynx Stadium in Ottawa, in the days when there used to be crowds. Florida Auto Exchange Stadium holds fewer people, but it’s a nice small park and the sightlines are about the same. Where the old-time spring training feel still plays out is in the easy-going nature of the fans, so pleased to be watching baseball again, so pleased to be out in the sunshine that that they can barely bring themselves to boo a bad call, so pleased to be out in the sunshine that even

Boston Red Sox fans have a hard time being unpleasant. The minor-league vibe can also be felt in the informality of the stadium itself, where a leather-lunged vendor can proclaim “ice-cold Canadian beer in an American can made in China� and, when announcing last call, urge customers to “take one home, as a souvenir.� So some things haven’t changed, but one thing that has -- and it applies to all sport -- is the recent trend among fans to wear full team uniforms. It used to be that if you went to the (sob!) Expos game, you might wear an Expos hat or an Expos t-shirt. You might see the odd guy wearing a uniform shirt with Raines or Dawson on the back, but it was rare because those things cost $75 and being a fan only went so far. It sure is different now. So seriously does the modern fan take his responsibilities that the uniform shirt, or replica jersey as it is known in the store, is seen in the hundreds, even at spring training where things haven’t begun to get serious. They are listed at $119.99 in Canada. And people aren’t wearing some old replica jersey with Jesse Barfield’s name on the back. No, these jerseys, most of them worn by grown men, have the names from the current roster on the back, not only names from the current roster but names of players, like Dickey and Reyes, who arrived in off-season trades and haven’t played a regular season game yet. Of course the wearers of these jerseys, aside from Reyes and Dickey themselves, must surely be Canadians. And you realize how many Canadians there are in this small Florida town when the anthems are played and O Canada is actually sung by a large number of people. Then the Star Spangled Banner is played and what seems to be an equal number of voices is heard. Mercifully, no animosity is detected between the singers of the different songs. But then, it’s spring training. Published weekly by:

Manotick’s Hollerado releases second album


The band has added a touch of authenticity to the name of its album, of which 12,000 copies have been hand-painted with about 50 gallons of white paint. The band called in reinforcements to get the job done for the first print run. “We threw a party, we rented out a big warehouse, we bussed in about 150 of our friends and bought like 50 gallons of paint and everyone pitched in,” Versteeg said. Despite painting all night, the band members and some close friends had to spend another two days finishing painting the albums, he said. It’s not surprising that so much effort went into making the albums unique. Record in a Bag was originally packaged in freezer bags, with swag like guitar picks, stickers and fortunes included with the record. Ottawa Carleton District School Board 133 Greenbank Road, Ottawa, Ontario, K2H 6L3 Congratulations to Eric Currie! T. (613) 808-7922 * F. (613) 596-8789 On February 19, Pierre Poilievre, Member

of Parliament for Nepean-Carleton, was at the Osgoode Public School, where he presented Eric Currie with a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal. The medal was awarded in recognition of Eric’s work in raising awareness about diabetes. The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal was created to celebrate Her Majesty’s accession to the Throne 60 years ago.

Hollerado released its second album on Feb. 26. This time, Hollerado offered fans the opportunity to receive a personalized song along with a t-shirt and vinyl copy of the album if they bought the “super duper deluxe” album package online. LOCAL BOYS

Hollerado got together in 2007 with Versteeg offering lead vocals and guitar, Nixon Boyd on guitar, Jake Boyd on drums and Dean Baxter on bass. In 2009, the band won Live 88.5’s annual battle of the


bands, Big Money Shot. They took home a $250,000 prize to help with tour and equipment costs. They released a free digital version of their first album that year, which was re-released in stores in 2010. Since forming, the band has largely been based out of Montreal and Toronto. They have spent the past several years touring and opening for bands like Jack White’s The Dead Weather and The Stills from Montreal. This spring Hollerado will tour with Billy Talent.

Investigating public complaints fairly and independently On March 5 I brought forward a motion asking the Board of Trustees to support writing a letter to the Premier of Ontario and leaders of the official opposition to ask them to re-introduce and support legislation to modernize the Ombudsman Act in order to permit the Ontario Ombudsman to investigate public complaints involving school boards as well as universities, hospitals and municipalities (the “MUSH” sector). Many provinces have moved in this direction. It would provide third party recourse for parents when conflicts with a school board are left unresolved and a fair and independent mechanism to review school board adherence to provincial policies or directives, such as with respect to bullying, special education, student safety, transportation etc. In 2011-2012, the Ombudsman received 119 complaints and inquiries about Ontario’s school boards. None of them could be dealt with. Extra-Curricular Activities I am pleased that the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation (OSSTF) has asked its members to suspend their political action related to extra-curricular activities. Since these activities were withdrawn over 200 community volunteers at the secondary and elementary school level went through our selection process to help with extra-curricular sports, clubs and activities. It is now time to bring our secondary teachers and volunteers together to provide these activities, which will enhance the extra-curricular services provided to the board’s student body. With respect to the Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario’s (ETFO) decision to continue its political action against the same activities, I am disappointed that the federation’s leadership has chosen this path, a course that only serves to further punish our youngest learners. The Ontario government and the OSSTF have recommitted themselves to having a more respectful dialogue and both have School Trustee shown some good-will in an effort to start talking again. I encourage EFTO to do the Zone same. 7

EMC news - Despite Hollerado frontman Menno Vertseeg’s insistence that releasing a second album is “no big deal,” he and his bandmates have tackled some big themes inside White Paint. The album launched Feb. 26 following the release of the band’s single Pick Me Up. It’s been four years since the pop-rock foursome - three of whom grew up together in Manotick - released their first album, Record in A Bag. Since then, the band has matured: in age, of course, but also in life experience. “The last album I wrote the lyrics in my early 20s and between now and then a lot of time has passed,” Versteeg said. “It’s the age where you make a lot of mistakes and you learn from them and you get a new perspective on things.” Although most of the album’s 11 songs feature the upbeat, punchy vibe Hollerado fans love, the lyrics behind the sound are much more soul-searching than the previous album. “The first album was celebration for celebration’s sake,” Versteeg said. “This time I wanted to celebrate how lucky we are that life even exists, like what are the odds and look at the wonder of the planet and be grateful.” Some songs also have deeply personal meaning. While working on the album, Versteeg’s grandfather died and Versteeg wrote the tune So It Goes to honour his grandfather’s time as a Dutch resistance fighter during the Second World War. His grandfather was caught and sentenced to death, but the German jailer who was in charge of him and other resistance fighters was a good man and had respect for the prisoners, Versteeg said. His grandfather survived because of the jailer, and later he testified on the man’s behalf during the Nuremburg trials. The song also captures his grandfather’s philosophy on life, Versteeg said. “He had an extremely hard life, a lot of ups and downs, and he always just took it with a grain of salt, like saying ‘so it goes,’” he said. In remembering his grandfather’s common ad-

vice to “keep going,” Versteeg recently had those words tattooed on his arm. Other songs were inspired with a bit more whimsy. Lonesome George is the only slow song on the album, and was written about the famous Pinta Island tortoise of the same name. Lonesome George was discovered to be the last of his kind in the world in the 1970s, and finally died last June. “I was so amazed he’d been the last one since the late 60s,” Versteeg said, noting he wrote the song before the tortoise died. “Obviously I’m humanizing the tortoise, but if the second last of his species was his wife, when she was dying he was coming to grips with the loss of his wife but also the loss of his entire species.” He said the idea struck him as an extreme lesson about letting go.

‘I just want to share his message of love’ Mother honours son’s life with Dreams Take Flight, Hunger Foundation fundraiser Emma Jackson

EMC news - When Zacharie Raizenne was born on Feb. 27, 1990, he didn’t have much to smile about. He had a severe gastro-esophageal reflux, which forced food into his esophagus and lungs. He caught pneumonia, he was dehydrated and he was in immense pain. It was all his mother Janet Perry could do to hold him while he screamed. But after a few months he underwent a surgery that kept his food down and reduced his discomfort and he finally began to smile. “From then on he smiled for the rest of his life,” his mother said. Zacharie was diagnosed with Angelman’s Syndrome at nine months, and with it came a host of physical and developmental disabilities. He was virtually non-verbal and had an age two intelligence level, Perry said. But he knew how to love, and through his wide, carefree smile he gave his love unconditionally to all the people in his short life, including his dad Mark and brother Nicholas.

“He could connect instantly with people, connect with joy,” Perry said. “He didn’t care if someone was maybe a bit rude to you. He didn’t get caught up in those little things. He just loved.” Zach died suddenly on Oct. 14, 2012 from severe pancreatitis at the age of 22. Almost immediately, the minister at Merivale United Church, Sandy Yule, and Perry’s friend Laurie Stewart knew Zacharie’s February birthday would be difficult for Perry. They began to plan a memorial party for him to fundraise for his favourite charities. The obvious first choice was the Canadian Hunger Foundation, which provides food security to some of the poorest areas of the world through donations of farm equipment, animals and seeds to help build sustainable businesses and food sources. Zacharie loved animals and the garden, and every Christmas Perry would purchase a goat on his behalf through the CHF. With it came a postcard photo of a gift-wrapped goat, which Zacharie adored. “He would walk around the house with the card, talk to the card, show

you the card,” Perry said. “It just made sense to honour Zacharie with donations to the (Canadian Hunger Foundation).” Later in the planning stages, Yule and Perry decided they also needed to fundraise for Dreams Take Flight Ottawa, an organization that sent Zacharie on the adventure of his lifetime in September 2011. The organization takes children to Disneyworld who otherwise would not be able to go, either because of financial constraints or a disability. Zacharie, of course, was a diehard Disney fan. He loved all of the movies and knew all of the characters, Perry said. While there was no way to really prepare him for the trip, Perry said she could tell how much fun he had as soon as he stepped off the plane 20 hours after she sent him flying for the first time. “Zacharie couldn’t talk to me about it but I could see how excited he was,” she said. Jason Colley, the new Dreams Take Flight president who travelled with Zacharie on the trip, confirmed. “He was so thrilled,” he said. “Every time he saw a Disney character, even being with the princesses he was just happy as can be. It just made his day.” Photos from the day-long excursion to Florida erase any doubt. In

Zacharie died in October last year at the age of 22. nearly every picture, the life-size Disney characters around Zacharie are outshined by his face-splitting smile. At the memorial birthday party on Saturday, Feb. 23, visitors raised $1,175 for the Canadian Hunger Foundation – which will be matched $3 for every dollar by CIDA – and another $979 for Dreams Take Flight. Colley and Dreams Take Flight past president Nicole Banville will

hike Machu Picchu mountain in Peru in June to raise money for their charity, in memory of Zacharie. They will bring some of Zacharie’s favourite finger puppet characters for the ride.

Lenten sacrifice was just between me and God


s far as Father was concerned, Mother had taken this Lent business too far. Giving up meat herself every Friday all year was one thing, but taking it off the menu for everyone during Lent was another kettle of fish altogether. No meal was complete without a good platter of meat on the table, according to Father, and now Lent was here, whatever that meant. Not only did Father think Mother’s idea of everyone giving up meat on Fridays was like asking a farmer to give up chores, but now she was pressing everyone to give up something they loved for Lent. She suggested Father might want to give up his pipe: as if to show his defiance, he put a match to it, which was already going at full steam. “It will be good discipline for the children,” Mother said and she asked us to think long and hard at what each of us could sacrifice. Mother said we could give up something and not tell anyone else what it was. It would be our secret between us and God. Well, my sister Audrey wanted everyone to know she was giving up butter. Audrey loved butter, especially since Mother started adding a few drops of yellow colouring to what came out of the churn -- before that it was as white as the driven snow. She was going through her religious phase and Audrey fell right in

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories with Mother’s orders that we five children think long and hard at what we could give up in the name of Lent. My brother Earl wanted everyone to know he was giving up whittling. Audrey thought it had to be something you ate, so Earl switched to turnips. Emerson, who said he was giving up pie, lasted one meal, so he switched to gum. His chances of getting a package of gum were pretty slim back in the 30s, so that wasn’t much of sacrifice for Emerson. Everett loved dill pickles and he told everyone within earshot he wouldn’t be taking another dill until Mother told him Lent was over. Now, I loved my food. I ate every meal as if it was my last one on earth. I hated head cheese and blood pudding, but this time of year our supply of both had pretty well run out. I had no idea what I could give up that wouldn’t seriously affect my mealtimes. I thought long and hard, but couldn’t come up a thing. I took my problem to my older and much wiser sister Audrey, who was always able to come up with a solution to just about anything that ailed me.

She suggested I give up either butterscotch discs or baloney, both of which she knew I loved with a passion, ever so much more that licorice pipes and humbugs which Mr. Briscoe often thrust in my hand at his general store. Little did he know, I either used them to bribe my brother Emerson or tossed them into the nearest shrubbery on the way home -- I had no taste for either. Both of them always made me think of Cascara, which Mother had great faith in, and whether we needed it or not we were often made take a heaping spoonful “just in case.” In case of what I had no idea! I knew perfectly well if I gave up baloney or butterscotch discs, I wouldn’t last a week. I asked my sister Audrey if God would mind if I kept my sacrifice to myself. If it would be diluted if I gave something up, and told no one. Audrey said she would think about it. Finally she said: “I see no reason why you have to tell anyone. It’s between you and God.” I said a silent thank your for this bit of information. I decided there and then to give up licorice pipes.

Volunteers recognized for helping Ottawa seniors Eddie Rwema

EMC community – About 200 dedicated volunteers from Ottawa Community Support Coalition agencies across Ottawa were recognized for sharing their time, efforts, skills and heart at Volunteer Factor Recognition Conference held on Feb. 27 at the RA Centre. The volunteers provide community and home-based professional services to seniors and adults with physical disabilities. “We organized this conference to give back to the volunteers the gift that they give to us,” said Serge Falardea, shared services co-ordinator for the coalition. The coalition helps strengthen and promote home and community support as the foundation of a sustainable health care system. Though it’s been hard recruiting new volunteers, Falardea said it was important to thank those around for the difference they make each and every day. “They make the lives of others richer by their actions,” he said. He said volunteers provide key services that enable seniors maintain a higher level of inde-

pendence within their own home. Manotick resident Trevor Wright, a volunteer driver with the Rural Ottawa South Support Services said it was refreshing to be recognized. “I get to meet a lot of fascinating people when I do this, and the comments I get back from my clients is; we wouldn’t be able to stay in our own homes if it wasn’t for the volunteers,” said Wright. Chantale LeClerc, interim chief executive officer of the Champlain Local Health Integration Network, Eastern Ontario’s health authority said there are about five million people who volunteer in community not-for-profit sector that provide services to some of the most need and vulnerable people in Ontario. “For every paid person who works in notfor-profit sector, there are about eight volunteers,” she said. “You can imagine that sector would simply not function without volunteers.” She said organizations like the one she heads would not provide the kind of support and services communities need without volunteers. “You are actually the backbone of that sector. We are very grateful for the work that you do,” said LeClerc. Matthew Beutel representing United Way, one of many organizations that benefit from volunteers, said Canadians gave the equivalent of one million full time jobs in volunteer hours in 2010. “The agencies you work for could not do what they do without you. Volunteers are the lifeblood of those agencies.” Beutel has himself worked as a volunteer for 25 years. “What makes us stay is that sense of fulfillment, of satisfaction, connectedness and community,” he said.

Brighten up your winter meals with fresh citrus EMC lifestyle - It may be cold and bleak outside, but your meals don’t have to be. Preparing meals with a sweet splash of citrus not only adds flavour, but also nutrients that can help energize you during the dreary months. “While many fresh fruits and vegetables are out of season in winter, Florida grapefruit is at its peak,” says registered dietitian Lydia Knorr. “Citrus fruit and juices have tremendous flavour, provide your body with a natural boost in energy and are an excellent source of vitamin C.” As a flavour agent and source of essential nutrients, citrus can bring sunshine to any meal. This recipe incorporates citrus fruit and juice for a Thai chicken and grapefruit noodle salad. INGREDIENTS

• 375 g (12 oz) boneless skinless chicken breasts, thinly sliced • 45 ml (3 tbsp) canola oil, divided • 30 ml (2 tbsp) grapefruit juice • 30 ml (2 tbsp) Thai red curry paste • 15 ml (1 tbsp) grated fresh ginger, divided • 15 ml (1 tbsp) fish sauce • 15 ml (1 tbsp) rice vinegar • 1 ml (1/4 tsp) granulated sugar

• 180 g (6 oz) rice stick noodles • 2 ruby red grapefruits, peeled and segmented • 1 small red bell pepper, thinly sliced • 250 ml (1 cup) bean sprouts • 50 ml (1/4 cup) chopped peanuts • 1 green onion, thinly sliced • 25 ml (2 tbsp) chopped fresh mint PREPARATION

Combine chicken with 15 ml (1 tbsp) of the canola oil, grapefruit juice, curry paste and 10 ml (2 tsp) of the ginger. Coat evenly and set aside. In a bowl, whisk the remaining oil, ginger, fish sauce, vinegar and sugar. Set aside. Cook the noodles for two minutes, then drain, rinse and place them in bowl. Add the grapefruit, red pepper, bean sprouts, peanuts and green onion. Drizzle with dressing, toss well and set aside. In a skillet over medium-high heat, stir fry chicken for about eight minutes, until it is no longer pink. Spoon over noodles and toss. Sprinkle with mint before serving. Makes four servings.

Year 1 Issue 2

March 6/7, 2013

To say that General Motors has hit the ground and streets running in 2013 would be a gross understatement. In 2012 this iconic automaker began an aggressive vehicle launch cadence that carries over to the current year. Approximately 70% of GM nameplates will be redesigned or all-new over the course of the 2012-2013 time frame, including the all-new Chevrolet Trax, Buick Encore, the award-winning Cadillac ATS, Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra just to name a few. Last year was one of continued transformation for GM Canada, as

they continued through a multi-year strategic plan to build a profitable and sustainable company. One early indicator of success is their products’ recent residual value improvement. They’re building better vehicles, building value into their pricing and independent third-party experts are acknowledging these efforts. And the crucial indicators show that the plan is working - for example, opinion scores and residual values are increasing, and customers are responding favourably to new products. By focusing on the core elements of their business, GM is building the value of its brands and products. This means offering their customers a full compliment of the best vehicles, the best technology and the best service.

Young families are finding that while crossovers are quickly eclipsing minivans as multipurpose transportation, GM has the largest selection ranging from the valueleader Chevrolet Traverse up to the luxury refinement of the Cadillac SRX. Truck buyers can select from full lines of both Chevrolet and GMC brands with something to fit every budget and job challenge. Sedans and coupes can be a very personal choice for many drivers and GM’s lineup in this category means no one has to be satisfied with the cookie-cutter approach that other carmakers offer. SUV’s are no longer synonymous with gas-guzzling threats to nonurban environments thanks to GM’s commitment to building fuel efficient vehicles that minimize their carbon footprints. And few could argue with the sparkle of the personnel sports vehicle jewels that are embodied in Camaro and Corvette.

Results indicate that GM’s new products are resonating in the marketplace: •

GM’s small/compact SUV/MPV sales, which include the Chevrolet Orlando and Equinox were up nearly 10 per cent in 2012

Chevrolet small, compact & mini car sales were up 15 per cent in 2012, including the all-new Spark, the Sonic which launched in 2011 and the Cruze, their best-selling passenger car.

Customers can expect even more great products coming this year starting off with the all-new Chevrolet Corvette Stingray which was unveiled to great fanfare at the North American International Auto Show in January and the redesigned 2013 Impala.

GM’s dedication to alternative fuels and advance power-trains are clearly demonstrated in the extended-range electrically powered Volt, as well as the gasoline/electric hybrid Malibu, Escalade, and Silverado 1500. And it’s interesting to note that while many of GM’s competitors feel the need to distance their luxury vehicle line up from their mainstream offerings with completely separate manufacturing and dealership networks, GM proudly integrates Cadillac into their vehicle family knowing this marque can distinguishitself withoutunnecessary infrastructure.

With one of the largest and most successful GM brand dealer networks in the country right here in Ottawa ...why aren’t your feet hitting the ground running to your local GM dealer today?

While individual segment sales leadership can vary from time to time (and GM’s brands have domi_ated more than their share of awards’ celebrations), one area in which General Motors has never taken a back seat to anyone is that of providing the widest range of products possible to fit every conceivable individual, family, and commercial need. Entry level vehicles such as Spark, Sonic, and Cruze are proving that young buyers can enter their automotive age without sacrificing quality, safety, or performance.

Bluesfest organizers announce diverse lineup

Steph Willems

EMC news - Organizers are promising a diverse musical experience for this year’s RBC Bluesfest, with booked performers designed to appeal to fans across a wide musical spectrum. The Bluesfest 2013 lineup was announced Feb. 27 amid great anticipation as well as speculation. Last year’s festival garnered criticism for its inclusion of what some concert-goers thought was too many electronic acts and too few bluesy acts. Organizers clearly hoped to change that impression with a something-for-everyone lineup, which includes popular indie/alternative acts like Fun, Tegan and Sara, Alex Clare, Mother Mother, Passion Pit and Weezer, along with classic rock acts like Rush, The Tragically Hip and Grand

Funk Railroad. Electronic fans can still look forward to seeing Skrillex, while blues fans can anticipate a performance by blues legend B.B. King. Even controversial Icelandic singer/actor Bjork is on the bill. In total, over 2,500 musicians will be featured on six stages located at Lebreton Flats – five outdoors and one 250-seat indoor theatre. “We consider this year’s line-up to be one of the best of any across North America—it reaches out to a wide-ranging demographic with cutting edge performances as well as festival favourites,” announced RBC Bluesfest programming director Mark Monahan via a media release. Now in its 20th year, Bluesfest will run over 10 days, starting July 4 and wrapping up July 14. The theme will be ‘Take Me to the River’, and organizers plan to make further announcements regarding confirmed performers in the coming weeks. Voted one of the top music festivals in the world, Bluesfest is supported by all three levels of government. Funding is received from Canadian Heritage, the Canadian Arts Preservation Fund, the Ontario Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport, the Ontario Arts Council, as well as the

City of Ottawa. The festival generates several tens of millions of dollars worth of economic activity for the city each year, through accommodations, food and tourism. Entry into the Bluesfest grounds will be by way of transferrable wristbands or single-use day tickets. Admission wristbands went on sale online on Feb. 28 at, while day tickets can be bought in person starting March 2 at all Compact Music and Sports Experts locations. All ticket types can be also be purchased by calling Scotiabank Place at 613-599-3267. More information on the RBC Bluesfest 2013 lineup and related events can be found at FILE

Local rock band The Bushpilots, led by Manotick resident Rob Bennett, left, performed at Bluesfest last July. This year’s lineup includes Rush, The Tragically Hip and Grand Funk Railroad. Organizers went for a “something for everyone” line-up this year after criticism that last year’s festival focussed too much on electronica and not enough on blues.

Pet Adoptions LoLa ID#A152953

Romeo ID#A153304

Meet Lola, a spayed female, black and tan Border Collie and Shepherd mix who is about 5 years old. She was brought to the OHS as a stray on January 29, but is now ready for adoptions! Lola loves to be with people. She is a very outgoing and affectionate dog who would love a family that would keep her in shape by taking her for nice, long, adventurous walks. Lola is a vocal lady, so her perfect fit would be in a single, detached home so she doesn’t get you in trouble with your neighbours. Lola is a smart lady and would like it if her new family would teach her some new tricks, as well as help her perfect her repertoire of basic obedience commands! Romeo is a neutered male, gray tabby Domestic Shorthair cat who is about six years old. He was transferred to the Ottawa Humane Society from another shelter on February 13, and is ready for adoptions. This regal fella will charm his way right into your heart. Since he was transferred from another shelter we don’t know much about Romeo’s past, but we are certain of one thing; he is looking for a family that will provide him with the love he deserves! Romeo likes nice, bright, sunny spots he can perch on to take naps. Romeo is currently at one of our Pet Adoption Location’s at the Petsmart in Orleans located at 2002 Mer Bleue Rd.

Pebbles Hi there, My name is Pebbles. I was adopted from the new Humane Society on Hunt Club road last November 19th, 2011. I was much smaller then and have doubled in size. I have made best friends with my owner Scott who throws me little rubber balls and toy mice so I can get my exercise. I’m an indoor kitty and need to stretch my legs with a good sprint around the house! He brushes me daily as I have a big fluffy coat that I like to show off. I also have a big purr and sure do like to snuggle with my friend at night. I’m always where the action is and try to help when I can which keeps Scott happy for the great company. Do you think your pet is cute enough to be “THE PET OF THE WEEK”? Submit a picture and short biography of your pet to find out! Simply email to: attention “Pet of the Week”

Microchips provide a permanent means of pet identification that will not fade or be lost over time. Owner information can be accessed electronically and immediately, to help ensure a quick return of the lost pet. But while a microchip is a non-removable means of pet identification, your information must be up-to-date if you want the microchip to work. If you have moved or changed your phone number, then your lost pet may not be able to return home. If you adopted your pet from the Ottawa Humane Society or have had your pet “chipped” at one of our microchip clinics, you were given the microchip number and information about the microchip provider.

Not quite a slam dunk Bytown Sports and Entertainment president Gus Takkale speaks to the media after unveiling the name and logo for Ottawa’s new professional basketball team, the Ottawa TomaHawks, at Ottawa city hall on Feb. 26. Just hours later, Takkale announced he was dropping the name and going back to the drawing board after the TomaHawks received backlash on social media. Takkale said aboriginal groups were consulted. At press time, a new name had not been announced. The new National Basketball League of Canada franchise will begin playing at Scotiabank Place this fall. LAURA MUELLER/METROLAND

Youth flag football for Ottawa Michelle Nash

EMC news - The city’s young people can hit the gridiron this spring when a new flag football league starts up at Carleton University. The Canadian Football Institute is organizing the 5 on 5 Youth Flag Football program, which starts on May 25. Scott Endicott, the institute’s president, said it is geared to youth looking to become more familiar with the game. “The biggest thing about the program is that its non-competitive,” he said. “It’s all about having fun.” The sessions will run every Saturday for two hours, Participants will be

divided according to their birth year and will learn agility drills, the basic concepts of the game as well as skills such as hand offs, passing, receiving, defending and flag pulling. “The program offers ongoing learning about the game, tips and tricks for the kids to pick up on,” Endicott said. The teams are coached by volunteers and the league is looking for parents to help out with the teams as well. The program will cost $250 for the season, which lasts for five weeks, but the price ensures each child will have a chance to play every position in the weekly games, he said.

Have your say in Winchester hospital’s future Staff

EMC news - The Winchester District Memorial Hospital’s board of directors is planning for the future, and is asking local community members to participate.

The board of directors is currently developing a five-year plan for the facility located in Winchester. A short, online survey has been posted on the front page of the hospital’s website at for feedback. The deadline for responses

is March 15. “WDMH has established a vision to be a centre of excellence for rural health and education,� said board chairperson Lisa Little. “We are developing a five-year plan to ensure that this vision aligns with the evolv-

ing needs of the rural populations that we serve. We want to hear from our local communities and hope everyone will take the time to complete the survey.� The centre of excellence for rural health and education would be a col-

laboration that brings together the hospital, physicians, a nursing home and community services. The centre would also include education and research initiatives that drive quality and excellence. Watch for future strategic planning updates on the hospital website. To provide feedback about hospital services, contact hospital CEO Cholly Boland at 613-774-1049 or by email at

The latter was an issue as some companies would build a tower just under 15 m and, because

Soccer enthusiasts support Ottawa Fury FC name choice Eddie Rwema

EMC sports – Ottawa’s North American Soccer League franchise will be called the Ottawa Fury FC, owners announced during a press conference on Feb. 25 at Algonquin College. The decision follows a team-naming contest that generated more than 4,000 suggestions. Club president and owner John Pugh said they saw no reason to change the name that is already associated with success. “After so much deliberation, we decided that no name surpassed that of the Fury, which already associates Ottawa across Canada and the United States with the winning culture, success on the field, stability off the field and an attractive brand of soccer,” he said amid cheers from fans who waited eagerly for the announcement. The only change imbedded in the name is FC, for football club. “Football is the name of the world’s game and yes, we are a football club,” said Pugh. The franchise will commence league play in 2014 after the major stadium reconstruction project at Frank Clair Stadium at Lansdowne Park is completed. Pugh said their goal is to provide exciting, affordable professional soccer to passionate fans in a soccerfriendly new stadium. “This is Ottawa’s team and it is really important for our fans to feel and be part of it,” he said. “The next 12 months will prove very exciting as we continue to build the Ottawa Fury FC franchise.” NASL Commissioner Bill Peterson said the hard work that has been put into the project will ensure success

Bob Monette said the partnership between the city and Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group to revitalize Lansdowne Park and its stadium means, “we will have a premium venue to watch the stars of the game take to the field.” He said the presence of the NASL team in Ottawa will encourage more youth to try the game and inspire them to be the stars of tomorrow. “Ottawa is a good fit for a vibrant league like the NASL. We look forward to welcoming the new team at Lansdowne Park in 2014,” said Monette. The Fury women’s program won the W-League North American Championship last July, while the men’s program has captured division titles in three of the past four seasons, and Fury’s youth academy has seen its boys program ranked first in North America over the past two years among Super Y-League clubs.

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20

LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21

SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22

Finding time to get everything done can be challenging, Aries. Fortunately, you have quite a few supporters in your corner who are willing to lend a helping hand. Taurus, difficult decisions take time to mull over. Although you want to properly work through all the scenarios, this week you might not have all the time you need.

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21

Gemini, water rolls off of your back quite easily. However, something tugs at you this week and you may have to give it more thought than you’re accustomed to.

CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22

Here’s How It Works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

You may need to break out of your routines this week, Scorpio. Even though you thrive when things are organized, you cannot expect everything to go according to plan.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21

There are some happy moments in your immediate future, Sagittarius. This will make any difficult days in your recent past seem well worth it.

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22

PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20

Virgo, it’s important to recognize your way is not always the right way. If you absorb what other people are saying, you might have an easier go of things.

Last week’s answers

Libra, keep the lines of communication open with a loved one. There may be messages coming your way, and you should be ready to receive them.

Cancer, with such a hectic schedule, you may be feeling the pressure. It is not unreasonable to take some time for yourself and focus on your relationship with a spouse or significant other. Sometimes you have to make a few mistakes before you get things right, Leo. Don’t let this worry you because you’ll get back on the right path soon enough.

Capricorn, now is a good time to get friends or family together for an informal dinner party. Focus your energy on socialization to get away from the daily grind. Aquarius, others appreciate all that you do for them, but sometimes they have to do for themselves to learn valuable lessons. This week is a time to step aside. Pisces, things may seem like they are going to go one way this week, but at the last minute things turn in an entirely different direction.
