Three Manotick restaurants to help with HIV/ AIDS fundraiser Emma Jackson

emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - Almost everyone wants to go south for their anniversary, and A Taste For Life is no exception. The one-night-only fundraiser invites more than 4,500 diners into restaurants across the city to enjoy a meal, visit with celebrity hosts and win prizes. Twenty-five per cent of all food and alcohol proceeds go to local HIV/AIDS organizations. This year, the popular event is celebrating its 15th anniversary with a number of new restaurants on the roster, including three in Manotick. “It’s the first time we’ve been confirmed in the village,” said organizer Jill Woodley, a staff at HIV/AIDS support facility Bruce House, which splits the evening’s proceeds with Snowy Owl AIDS Foundation. “It’s nice to step out a little farther, and we’ve never been south.” Black Dog Bistro, Main Street Cellar and Burgers on Main in Manotick are all confirmed for the April 24 event, which this year boasts more than 50 restaurants across the city. Rideau-Goulbourn Coun. Scott Moffatt will be the Main Street Cellar’s celebrity host, and Woodley and several Bruce House volunteers will host at Black Dog Bistro. A host for Burgers on Main

hasn’t been chosen yet. Kim Burns, owner of Main Street Cellar, said participating in the event is a great match for a fine dining restaurant like hers. “We’re always looking for different charities that we can help with,” Burns said. “It’s a really good combination for us to get the word out for Manotick residents especially.” She said having restaurants participate inside the village is a huge benefit for local residents, who in other years would have had to travel into the city to take part. “I’m hoping it will make it easier for people to be part of the event when they know they don’t have to go as far,” Burns said. “(Hopefully) they would put parking or taxi fares they save into the donation itself.” TASTE FOR LIFE

The HIV/AIDS fundraiser started in Ottawa 15 years ago, and has spread across the country to include cities from Newfoundland to Alberta. Diners reserve at their favourite participating restaurant and enjoy a delicious meal. Each restaurant then donates 25 per cent of all proceeds from the evening, including drinks, to Bruce House and Snowy Owl. “It’s a lot of fun, some restaurants are just crazy full packed, and it turns into a rowdy night in Ottawa on a Wednesday,” Woodley said. Woodley said this year’s goal is to raise $100,000, about $10,000 more than last year. “It’s our key fundraiser, that and the AIDS Walk For Life,” she said. See AIDS page 13

Fentanyl dose, availability may be cut Nevil Hunt

nevil.hunt@metroland.com

EMC news - An expert on a national drug panel believes the Ontario government may reduce access to fentanyl through dosing limits and by removing the drug from the list of those available under the provincial drug plan. Fentanyl is a manmade opioid that is up to 100 times more powerful than morphine and comes in patch form in doses up to 100 micrograms. The patch is meant to slowly deliver the drug to patients

dealing with chronic pain over a period of 48 to 72 hours. Fentanyl has caused addiction and death when people smoke the gel inside the patch, which delivers the patch’s full dose in a few breaths. The Manotick community has seen the drug misused locally and one young man died in 2012 after smoking the drug. A string of home breakins was also linked to fentanyl abusers who needed money to buy the drug. Dr. Meldon Kahan, medical director of the Women’s College Hospital in Toronto, is a member of a national group

that released its report entitled First Do No Harm: Responding to Canada’s Prescription Drug Crisis. The report, released on March 27 in Ottawa, lays out a 10-year national strategy to reduce the harms caused by prescription drug abuse. In response to questions about Fentanyl abuse in south Ottawa, federal Health Minister Leona Aglukkaq refused to say if a prescription drug could be removed from the market as a result of the expert committee’s work.

Drug could be de-listed by province Continued from the front

“It’s a complex process,” Aglukkaq said of the panel’s ongoing research and future recommendations, adding that ensuring patients have access to drugs they need is important. Kahan called fentanyl “convenient but dangerous,” and suggested an outright federal ban on fentanyl might not be needed. He offered some hope that Ontario will unilaterally address the abuse of the drug in this province. “Maybe the 100-microgram (fentanyl) patch is not the safest option,” Kahan said during the press conference as the First Do No Harm report was released. “It may not simply be a matter of Health Canada banning a particular product.” Following the press conference, Kahan said he believes Ontario’s Health Ministry is reviewing the dose limits on fentanyl, which could see the amount of drug per patch reduced. That could reduce the amount of the drug redirected to people who misuse fentanyl. More importantly, Kahan said Ontario could remove coverage of fentanyl from the provincial drug plan. That would mean doctors could still prescribe the drug, but patients whose drugs are paid for by the province would have to pay for fentanyl out of their own wallets. That could prompt many legitimate fentanyl users to request their doctor to prescribe painkillers in other forms, reducing the amount available for misuse. “It’s up to the (provincial) Ministry (of Health) to rethink these very carefully,” Kahan said of fentanyl’s dosage and

Earlier, Kahan said Ontario has seen a big jump in the number of people seeking treatment for opiate addiction. “We’ve seen an increase in substance abuse in Ontario, with treatment for opiates doubling between 2004 and 2009,” he said, adding that treatment resources haven’t kept up with demand. “People are dying.” CHANGES EXPECTED

The co-chairs of the National Advisory Council on Prescription Drug Misuse said all Canadians have a part to play in reducing the misuse of drugs, starting in the nation’s bathrooms. Carolyn Davison of Nova Scotia’s health department said the medicine cabinets of friends and family are the source of many drugs that end up being abused. First Do No Harm includes 58 recommendations and more are expected as the panel continues its work. In the short

term, Canadians can expect to see more public education about safe storage of prescription drugs. Michel Perron is CEO of the Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse, which partnered with the NAC to produce First Do No Harm. “Canadians have an increasing appetite for these drugs,” he said of opiates, adding that it remains important to get drugs to those who need them. “But the situation cannot carry on as it is. First Do No Harm is a roadmap to change and a clear signal of where we need to go and how to get there.” NAC co-chair Dr. Susan Ulan of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta said First Do No Harm has clear objectives. “Our goal is to get the right medication to the right people for the right reasons,” Ulan said.

Manotick church to sponsor refugee family emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - In the season of new beginnings, one Manotick church is hoping to offer a fresh start to a family from Burma. The Manotick Karen Refugee Sponsorship Program is working with St. James Anglican Church to sponsor a family of five Karen refugees and help them settle into a new life in Canada. On March 31 - Easter Sunday - St. James minister Ross Hammond announced to the congregation the partnership that will allow the group access to the church’s five allotted sponsorship spots. “It’s a time of renewal and as it’s a new project to our church, we thought it would be a big announcement,” said Joan Bowler, who is spearheading the project. “At Easter

we get everybody in there.” The Karen people have been fighting for independence from Myanmar (formerly known as Burma) since the 1940s, and as a result the country is embroiled in the world’s longest-running civil war. Today, thousands of Karen people have fled to refugee camps along the Thai-Burma border, where some people have lived for decades. There is little access to proper education, healthcare or nutrition in the camps. Bowler was inspired to get involved after watching a documentary called How Can A Boy, which chronicles the story of Ottawa resident Nimrod Andrew. Andrew grew up in the refugee camps after his village was attacked by the Myanmar army, and came to Ottawa as a refugee with nothing but an education.

He now works at OCISO (Ottawa Community Immigrant Services Organization) helping new arrivals settle. He returns regularly to Thailand and Burma to help his people come to Canada. “I was so moved and so inspired by Nimrod Andrew,” Bowler said. “I thought, he can’t do it alone; I’m going to help them in my way.” Andrew is now a key member of the Manotick refugee sponsorship program, and will leave for Thailand at the end of April to choose a suitable family for sponsorship. In order to sponsor a refugee family, the group needs to fundraise about $30,000 to cover the family’s financial EMMA JACKSON/METROLAND needs for an entire year.

Greely businesses tackle social media Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

Jeremy Harley speaks to a group of business people at the Rideau Carleton Raceway during the Greely Business Association’s first breakfast meeting on March 27. was more an opportunity to network with other entrepreneurs in the Ottawa South area since she works from home selling products to international clients. “It’s very useful because when you’re working at home, it’s good to get out and meet people,” she said. The next breakfast meeting will be held June 19 at the raceway, with city planner Derrick Moodie offering a primer on rural planning. A meeting on September 18 will explore long-term strategic planning. The Greely Business Association was officially formed in the spring of 2012 to provide a voice for local businesses with customers and the city.

EMC news – They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and for Greely businesses that was especially true on March 27 when they tackled one of their biggest challenges of the 21st century: navigating social media. The free breakfast meeting held at the Rideau Carleton Raceway was the first of a series the Greely Business Association hopes to host over the next year. “We’re trying to provide a service to local businesses, so the series will have a number of topics that are relevant to the business community,” said Dale Harley, president of the association. Harley said he chose to begin with harnessing social media because he noticed many contractors he works with in the construction industry aren’t using social media effectively. “I found (they) had very little understanding of social media and the opportunity it represents,” Harley said. He figured other businesses in the area were facing similar problems. Melanie Richard, owner of Rich Web Design and Communication, and Jeremy Harley, a communications specialist, both gave detailed presentations about how businesses can effectively manage a social media presence. Richard began with advice on how to prepare. Unlike a personal Facebook page or Twitter account, creating a business personality and communicating effectively with customers online takes careful planning and time management, she said. Perhaps one of the most important things a business needs to do is commit a specific amount of time to maintaining their accounts. “If you don’t set a schedule, it’s very easy to say ‘oh, I’ll do it next week’ and then your campaign goes nowhere,” she told the crowd of about 20 business people. She also stressed the importance of monitoring the impact social media has on the business. “If you’re not reaching your goals, then your campaign’s not working,” she said.

Jeremy Harley’s presentation focused on creating effective content. Since the average Canadian spends about 41.3 hours a month online, and 23.9 million Canadians use social media, he said there’s a lot to be gained from reaching customers with content they can’t get anywhere else. Telling stories, asking questions and relating to people will get businesses the farthest, he said. Responding to a customer’s question quickly on Twitter, for example, leaves a good impression with the customer which they will share with their own network. Posting a compelling photo of a company event or product on Facebook has the potential to go viral. “If you do it right, people become brand ambassadors,” Harley said. “But you have to be the first person telling the story.” Ashleah Linden, a chiropractor with Back on Track physiotherapy clinic in Findlay Creek, said the event was an eye-opener. “I use social media only 50 per cent, and this helped me realize how to use it more intelligently,” she said.

EDITORIAL

A tale lacking in substance

I

n the play Macbeth, Shakespeare describes life as “a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury signifying nothing.� He just as easily could have been referring to the city’s planning process: endless meetings filled with talk but often devoid of discussion. It is a process that is frustrating for the public, frustrating for city staff, and, at times infuriating for the developers. The element of conflict is baked into the recipe of site plans and rezoning applications – a development proposal never meets everyone’s vision of the character of the surrounding neighbourhood. But conflict should be an opportunity for rational discourse and a little constructive give-andtake, resulting in a compromise. Instead, it often turns into a standoff between two diametrically opposed camps. It drags on for months at community consultations and at city hall before finally (in worst case scenarios) landing at the feet of the Ontario Municipal Board. Too often we witness members of the public show up at consultation meetings armed only with emotional arguments. Bitter words are often exchanged, but little else.

If the city wants to encourage rational discourse and limit pointless debate and time spent wasted arguing lost causes at the OMB, it must start by educating the public. We sympathize with the public’s confusion about the planning process, with the city still trying to harmonize its zoning rules – something which hopefully will fall into place during the review of the Official Plan. It starts and ends with education. The city already offers planning primer courses throughout the year, explaining how planners evaluate development proposals, zoning rules, how secondary plans fit with the city’s official plan and a discussion about how the OMB works. More people might take advantage of this set of courses if they were offered throughout the city – instead of just at city hall – and working in conjunction with the various community associations that pepper the municipality. Developers, for their part, can also participate in the process, by participating in or speaking at some of these courses. Providing a forum for rational debate meets the needs of everyone –w developers, the city and the public included.

The cuddliness factor and Canadian politics

L

ess than a week after the tabling of his government’s budget, Stephen Harper went to Toronto to meet two pandas arriving from China. The news pictures coming out of that event were much nicer than the news pictures coming out of the budget because there were no pandas involved in the budget. Stephen Harper knew that. He didn’t get where he is by not understanding such things. Everybody looks better standing with a panda and everybody sounds better talking about pandas, even when what they say is absurd. For example, here’s what the prime minister said at the Toronto airport: “Over the coming years these pandas will help us learn more about one another while serving as a reminder of our deepening relationship, a relationship based on mutual respect and growing collaboration.� This will come as quite a surprise to the pandas, who figured that all they had to do in their lives was stay in the cage, eat bamboo, breed and get used to people in Toronto Maple Leafs caps waving at them. Now they find out they are supposed to help Canadians and Chinese learn more about each other, as well as serve as a

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town reminder of a deepening relationship. What a job description for a panda. But what a great coup for the prime minister to be at the centre of this happy event, surrounded by more photographers than ever show up at, say, the opening of a new prison. This is because pandas are cuddly -- not that you’d ever want to try to cuddle one because they are big and have sharp teeth and probably don’t understand English or French very well just yet. At a safe distance, however, pandas are more cuddly, even, than dogs. We know this because of developments in the Pooch CafÊ comic strip in the Citizen, where the dogs are deeply concerned that their capacity to be adored by people is being Published weekly by:

undermined by cute pandas. All of this is to say the prime minister chose wisely. It also suggests one of large problems confronting Canadian politicians is a shortage of pandas. All of them would like to be seen next to one and be able to make speeches about how they serve as reminders of deepening relationships. Imagine Jim Watson, mayor of Ottawa, being able to talk about pandas instead having to say something, one way or the other, about casinos. That would be such an improvement for him. Even if he had bad news to announce, such as the decision to locate a casino on the lawn of the Supreme Court, having a panda beside him when he made the announcement would make it so much more palatable. Similarly, having a panda present at the announcement of each new 23-story building in Ottawa, would make the looming shadows over residential neighbourhoods so much easier to take. The panda, not the building, would be in the shot. Put a panda on the west lawn of the Museum of Nature when you announce that it is going to be a parking lot. Put a panda in front of CIDA when it closes. Hey, how about the Ottawa Pandas as

the name of the new CFL team? Who could object? Sadly, there are simply not enough pandas to go around. Already in short supply, they don’t breed as enthusiastically as they might (maybe they just like to cuddle). So just to get two to come to Canada is a pretty great thing. In the absence of pandas, the hunt is on for creatures of significant cuddliness who could serve politicians as an acceptable substitute. Our customary national symbols, the beaver and the Canada goose, have enemies. Penguins, also celebrated in Pooch CafÊ, would find our climate too warm.

A few simple steps will have you painting like a professional EMC lifestyle - Changing a room’s decor can be as simple as giving the walls a new coat of paint. At least it can be, if you know all the tricks that will result in a professional looking finish. First of all, it is crucial to prepare the room thoroughly. This step, which often takes more time than applying the paint, is essential in order to achieve an impeccable final result. Start by removing any large pieces of furniture and any objects that could be damaged by paint splashes. Plates around light switches and electrical outlets should also be removed, as well as any light shades. Next, protect the floorcovering with old sheets or a tarp. Ensure that any furniture that cannot be taken out of the room is well protected. Run a strip of masking tape or paint tape along

Organ donation volunteers honoured for their efforts emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - “There’s nothing better than saving lives.” This is the mantra of Lyn and David Presley, a Manotick couple who have dedicated a large part of the last seven years advocating for organ donation and kidney research. David has end-stage renal disease, which means he must be on dialysis until he can have a kidney transplant. He has been on the waiting list for a kidney since 2005. Since the diagnosis, the retired couple has been working tirelessly for the Kidney Foundation and the Trillium Gift of Life Network to promote organ donor registration. “I was sitting in that waiting room and I saw a picture of the Living Green Ribbon (organ donation campaign) on Parliament Hill,” said Lyn. “I thought we should try and educate people to some degree.” At the time, the pair was organizing the Super Ex at Lansdowne Park. That year they spearheaded bringing the Living Green Ribbon campaign to the summer carnival. It became quite a hit, David said, and they haven’t stopped advocating for the cause ever since. “Any opportunity we have, we go out and promote,” Lyn said. “We do fundraisers whenever something comes along that seems reasonable.” For all that hard work, the Presleys were honoured in March along with a number of other volunteers from across the province at a volunteer summit hosted by the Trillium Gift of Life Network. The award was for the bulldogs of the province, the ones who are constantly hammering away at raising registration rates, Lyn said. That certainly applies to the Presleys. They spend about 20 hours a week at grocery stores, community events, fundraisers and fairs promoting organ donation and kidney research. They share stories with those who stop by their booth, and encourage others to sign up to be a donor. It doesn’t take much to make them feel like they’re making a difference. “If we just reach one person, it’s up to eight people saved,” Lyn said. “Then we feel our whole weekend was a success.” They split their time advocating for kidney research and organ donation, because to them the issue is one and the same. “The only solution to kidney dis-

ease is a transplant, so it’s hard to distinguish where one ends and the other begins,” David said. Besides, those needing a new kidney are the largest group on the organ donation waiting list. “More people are waiting for a kidney than any other organ,” Lyn said. “So if you’re going to promote for kidneys, you’re really promoting for everybody.” The provincial organ donor registration rate is 22 per cent. Ottawa is not much better at 24 per cent, and the greater Toronto area barely registers above 10 per cent. The problem, Lyn said, is that many people think carrying a signed donor card in their wallet means they’re registered. Not so, she said. To be truly registered with the Gift of Life Network donors must visit www.beadonor.ca and submit to a two-minute online registration process. A practical problem for the Presleys is making sure people remember to go online and sign up. Without a laptop or tablet to help them register people on the spot, it’s hard to know if people remember to register once they get home. “We need a laptop really badly,” Lyn said. “We don’t want to do a fundraiser just for that, but if we had one we could register them right there.”

Lyn and David Presley were honoured at a provincial summit for organ donation volunteers in early March. They have spent hundreds of hours promoting their cause at the local level. The one time they did have a borrowed laptop, they registered about six people over one hour – enough to save up to 48 people. Currently there are about 1,500

people waiting for an organ transplant in Ontario. In 2012, more than 1,000 transplants were performed but 95 people died waiting for an organ. In April, Trillium Gift of Life Net-

“It’s core funding for our programs which every non-profit needs, plus it really promotes us in the community so people can see exactly what we’re doing.” Bruce House began 25 years ago as a transition house offering 24hour care and palliative care services for people living with HIV/AIDS. Today, the organization also runs an apartment program that helps clients find affordable housing while improving their quality of life. “When you’re living with compromised health not having a home is not going to help,” Woodley said. She said any health issue can impact a person’s ability to work and support themselves, and Bruce House clients are often dealing with added issues like addiction, homelessness and mental health concerns. Snowy Owl AIDS Foundation is different than Bruce House in that it raises money to provide a financial resource for organizations like Bruce House dedicated to HIV/AIDS education, prevention and support. The organization was founded in 1995 in memory of Louis Turpin, who died of AIDS in 1993. It now is a partner organization in the AIDS Walk for Life, runs a camp for families dealing with HIV/AIDS and has been participating in the Taste For Life event since 1999. Executive director Lise Turpin said she hopes the event increases awareness about how devastating HIV can be. “I want youth to realize there is no cure yet,” Turpin said. “There is still a struggle for living with the disease. The pill is a toxic chemical, it’s chemotherapy of sorts.” Osgoode chef Steph Legari has joined the event as this year’s “spokeschef.” He said one tour through Bruce House was enough to convince him he should support the event. “I was expecting doom and gloom, but I was greeted with a gorgeous house with lots of life, lots of energy and people who want to die

with dignity or get better and move on,” Legari said. “It’s a house of life, not death.” He said that’s exactly the kind of The War Amps optimism and celebration that food 1 800 250-3030 and dining represents. waramps.ca “At every last one of (our social Charitable Registration No. gatherings), food is always associat13196 9628 RR0001 ed with celebration,” he said. “We’re not dwelling on the negative.” For more information about the event or to make a dinner reservation, visit www.farhorizons.ca www.atasteforlife.org/ottawa.

Using the outhouse at night a scary proposition

D

uring the day, the outhouse held little terror for me. It was at night, when it was pitch black outside, that I dreaded the small clapboard building that sat like a sentry behind a cluster of cedar trees in our back yard. Mother hated the outhouse for an entirely different reason. After living in New York for 18 years, she thought going outside to the bathroom was right up there with drinking tea from a saucer or wearing a soiled apron when company came to the back door. “Uncivilized. That’s all it is, just plain uncivilized,” was her constant lament. Well, we had no choice out there in the back woods of Renfrew County. Our chances of having a flush toilet, like my little friend Joyce had in her brick house, were abso-

lutely nil. We had no running water and there was no electricity or telephone. The very thought of having a flush toilet in the house was like dreaming the Depression wasn’t happening! For the longest time when I was very little, I remember our outhouse having only one hole. But eventually, after Mother complained endlessly, a new one was built by Old Herman, who was considered an outhouse authority out there in Northcote for reasons which escaped me at the time. It was after the second hole was built that my sister Audrey pointed out the bevelled seat Old Herman was famous for. Well, the bevelled seat did little to endear the outhouse to Mother and did less for me, who still dreaded going out once night had settled in. Yes, the new outhouse was an improvement, but Mother

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories still lamented daily about how it was “an uncivilized way of life” which she never quite got used to. My friend Joyce also had a store-bought roll of real toilet paper in her indoor bathroom. It hung on a wire holder on the wall and even when I didn’t have to go, I never failed to use the bathroom when I visited her house. I would reef off a piece of that store-bought toilet paper, just to witness the sheer luxury of the whole experience. Our toilet paper was the no-longer current issue of

the Eaton’s catalogue. Father would drive a spike through the upper left corner of the thick book and feed a piece of heavy binder-twine through the hole, and hang it on a nail on the inside near the door. An entire page was never fully torn out, and by the time the catalogue was well used up, it was almost useless. But it was all we had. Well, except at Christmas time. This was when Mother would ask Mr. Briscoe if she could have the little orange wrappers that came around the oranges he brought in to his

General Store only at Christmas. They were only about six inches square, but she would iron them flat and put them in the back-to-the-wall cupboard in a neat little pile and they replaced the Eaton’s catalogue in the outhouse only when we had company. We children were well warned not to use the orange papers -- they were there for a higher clientele. During the day, I had little fear of going into the outhouse, but once it got dark at night, I was filled with dread. But the very thought of going through the entire night without emptying my bladder was all it took to create an urgent need. This was when I would beg Audrey to come with me. She thought I was old enough at five or six to go on my own, so I would ask her to light the lantern even thought it had yet to get absolutely dark out. I would go through the summer

kitchen and then the wood shed, a long-about way of getting there, because that way I was under cover for most of the trip. My brother Emerson, whose mission in life seemed to be to scare the living daylights out of me every chance he got, would always warn me to stay clear of the coyotes or the big black bear he assured me would like nothing better than to haul a young girl off to the bush. So going out to the outhouse became a constant challenge for me once it got dark at night. There was always the Johnny pot under the bed, but to use it before we retired was out of the question. It was there for emergencies, Mother said. I couldn’t think of a more dire emergency than forcing a young terrified girl out in the dark at night to go to the privy.

Organic food means knowing what’s really on your plate EMC lifestyle - The organic food and drink industry has expanded rapidly, experiencing an average growth of 20 per cent per year on a global scale. What motivates people to buy organic foods? Health, wholesomeness, and respect for the environment are sure to be found at the top of the list. An organic-certified food is produced without the use of any chemical products. The difference between organic and non-organic foods is the absence of all chemical pesticides, herbicides, and preservatives. Eating organic, like our ancestors did, is the only way to avoid the involuntary consumption of substances that are potentially hazardous to our health. Did you know of the Central that overFriends time, the ingestion Experimental Farm of many food industry chemical substances can lead to a weakening of the immune system and have harmful effects on the mental, cognitive and physical development of chil-

dren? In addition, numerous studies have shown the current antibiotics resistance observed in humans is the direct result of the use of growth hormones and medications given to cattle and pigs raised for slaughter. This is just one of the reasons why organic food is increasingly popular among consumers. An organic product does not contain any more vitamins than a similar non-organic product. A carrot is still a carrot, whether it’s organic or not. Choosing to buy organic is based solely on ecological and social reasons. Even better, buying locally produced organic foods means encouraging local producers and reducing the amount of greenhouse gases produced by the transportation of food over Amis de la Ferme long distances. What a great way to contribute directly to expérimentale centrale the good health of our country and make the most of Mother Nature’s bounty. Newspaper Toolbox

United Way announces $30M campaign total Michelle Nash

michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - The United Way Ottawa announced its campaign goal total this week, celebrating surpassing its goal by thousands. The United Way Ottawa announced it has raised $30,334,000 for its 2012-13 fundraising community campaign. The total exceeds the $30 million goal the United Way set in September. United Way board chairman, Jamie McCracken congratulated donors for all the hard work and money raised. “This is an amazing total for this year’s campaign,” McCracken said. United Way Ottawa changed the way the way the organization allocated funding raised from its annual United Way Ottawa Campaign more than two years ago, creating goal priorities and criteria to appeal to donors. Although the campaign was extended this year for the first time, with an additional 10 weeks for donors to contribute, the money raised,

however fell short on total donations available for investment in its priority goals. McCracken explained this is in part because unrestricted donations continue to decline. The United Way appealed to donors at the announcement to help raise the remaining short fall of $800,000 before the campaign is officially complete on March 31. The campaign volunteers were taking to the phones to call previous donors who had yet to give. “We are still hopeful,” McCracken said. Co-chairs of the United Way Ottawa 2012-13 Campaign, Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury and Majic 100 and CTV Ottawa Morning Live host Angie Poirier were on hand at the announcement to celebrate the total and reflect on the campaign. For the councillor, he said he enjoyed the opportunity to meet organizations and people in a different setting than through the city lens. “You think you know your community, until you go out there,” Fleury said. “With United Way its a different perspective, people are more open, conversations are much different...it gives you a different insight.” The two were dubbed leaders of the next generation of donors, and made their own personal goals for

Cancelled Metcalfe play gets new life in the city Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - A Metcalfe mother-daughter team will finally give their play the stage it deserves. For one night only, the Just Kiddin Theatre play Private Thoughts will be performed at the Gladstone Theatre in Little Italy this June, after the production was cancelled in Metcalfe unexpectedly last May. “I’m really excited because in retrospect the subject matter is so different than what Just Kiddin Theatre usually does,” said executive director Andrie Nel, who co-wrote the play with her teenaged daughter, Sydney. “It belongs in a professional theatre, not in our playful kids’ style. I’m happy it’s going to get the audience it should have and we get to do it well.” The play explores the difference between a person’s private thoughts and what they say out loud, and how that can cause all varieties of miscommunication. Although two storylines are relatively lighthearted, a third deals with a teen’s private thoughts about suicide. The children’s theatre troupe is holding auditions for two teenage girl roles this Saturday, April 6, as well as the theatre’s first ever adult role. Nel said that most of the play’s original actors are returning for the summer performance, but several others must be replaced. “That worked out well because it was the actors playing the adults that couldn’t return,” she said. “Adults playing adults in this context is going to be much stronger.” Nel and her husband will play a couple who struggle to communicate, causing themselves a lot of avoidable grief. Saturday’s auditions for George, the husband’s arrogant brother, will cast the third adult role. Private Thoughts was cancelled last May after its partner YouthNet, a youth mental health

intervention program run through CHEO, withdrew its support for the play’s content. Nel had partnered with YouthNet to make sure the suicide storyline sent the right message to any youth performing or watching the play. But the week before the production was due to start at the Metcalfe Town Hall, YouthNet withdrew its support on the grounds that the play – particularly its ending – could be a trigger. “We were faced with this decision that the optics of them backing out made us feel we were putting the organization at risk,” Nel said. “Should anything have happened as a result of the play, the optics of having this mental health organization pull out would just expose us too much.” However taking the play out of a children’s theatre and putting it onto a professional stage is another matter. “Now it’s a provocative piece of theatre, and that’s what theatre’s about. It’s entirely appropriate,” Nel said. ONE NIGHT ONLY

Private Thoughts owes its new lease on life to the Gladstone Theatre at Preston Street and Gladstone Avenue, which will open its doors to small, community theatres for one-off performances throughout the summer. Just Kiddin’s play will take the stage Saturday, June 29. Rehearsals will be held in Metcalfe as usual, and Nel said she’s hoping for some sort of dress rehearsal at the Gladstone before the performance. She said the amount of work necessary to stage one show is worth it. “We care so deeply about it that we’ll put all that work into it just for that show,” Nel said. “We always believed in the story, in the play. My assistant director Amy McRae and I have been just so convinced that it’s a play that needs to be seen.” Having access to a professional stage with proper lights and facilities will be a good experience for the younger actors, she added. Auditions will be held at 1 p.m. in Metcalfe on April 6. Contact andrie@justkiddintheatre. com to arrange an audition.

Ottawa & Area - According to industry experts, there are over 33 physical problems that will come under scrutiny during a home inspection when your home is for sale. A new report has been prepared which identifies the eleven most common of these problems, and what you should know about them before you list your home for sale. Whether you own an old home or a brand new one, there are a number of things that can fall short of requirements during a home inspection. If not identified and dealt with, any of these 11 items could cost you dearly in terms of repair. That's why it's critical that you read this report before you list your home. If you wait until the building inspector flags these issues for you, you will almost certainly experience costly delays in the close of your home sale or, worse, turn prospective buyers away

altogether. In most cases, you can make a reasonable pre-inspection yourself if you know what you're looking for, and knowing what you're looking for can help you prevent little problems from growing into costly and unmanageable ones. To help homesellers deal with this issue before their homes are listed, a free report entitled "11 Things You Need to Know to Pass Your Home Inspection" has been compiled which explains the issues involved. To order a FREE Special Report, visit www.OttawaFreeHomeInfo.com or to hear a brief recorded message about how to order your FREE copy of this report call toll-free 1-800-217-1897 and enter 1040. You can call any time, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Get your free special report NOW to learn how to ensure a home inspection doesn't cost you the sale of your home.

Rain barrel sales support local charities, protect water system Staff

said in a statement. In Manotick, the Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind are selling rain barrels for $55 which can be picked up on April 20. Each barrel comes fully equipped with a leaf and mosquito filter, an overflow adaptor which permits multiple barrels to be connected in series, 1.2 metres of overflow hose and spigot that attaches directly to a

garden hose. The sales are managed through RainBarrel.ca, which partners with charities and allows them to sell the barrels for a $10 profit. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a winwin for the customer, who gets to support a charity in their neighbourhood while saving money on a rain barrel which can cost between $80 and $300 at retail outlets, according to RainBarrel.ca.

Orders are now being taken online for the Guide Dogs fundraiser. Customers can pay online and pick up their rain barrel on April 20, or reserve only and pay with cash. Rain barrels must be reserved in advance. Call 613-692-7777 for information not available on the website or if you need assistance with online ordering. Bring your receipt to 4082 Rideau Valley Drive.

R0012004800

EMC news - Local charities are once again offering a cheap and helpful alternative for purchasing a rain barrel this season. The Rideau Valley Conservation Authority has teamed up with charities in Manotick, Smiths Falls and Westport to help homeowners garden efficiently while protecting the

Rideau watershed from run-off, erosion and pollution. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rain barrels effectively and safely reduce the amount of water running directly into your local watercourse or lake (or your storm sewer in the city); they encourage infiltration of precipitation on your property; and they provide a ready, inexpensive source of excellent water for the garden all summer long,â&#x20AC;? the RVCA

Aries, some conflicting signals from a friend this week might seem like trouble is ahead. But it’s more likely that your perception of the situation is a little off. Taurus, your imagination has a life of its own this week. You may be thinking of living on the edge a little bit in the next few days but don’t overdo it. Gemini, avoid a deep discussion about your feelings with someone at work this week. Now is not the time or the place to share anything personal, so keep it professional.

Libra, you know what you want and do not need anyone’s approval, but you can’t help checking in with a family member this week to get a second opinion. Scorpio, channel your romantic feelings into action this week. Act sooner rather than later and make the most of your emotions while they’re strong. Sagittarius, learn from the past but do not allow letdowns from the past to dictate your future. There is no guarantee that things will be repeated.

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20

Cancer, don’t get sidetracked this week because coworkers are expecting your full attention and effort at the office. You may need to juggle a few responsibilities for the time being.

Capricorn, write things down this week before you say them to be sure you have everything correct. This will help you when you need to make an important announcement.

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22

PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20

Leo, make sure you comments are not misinterpreted this week. Someone might take something the wrong way, so choose your words carefully. Virgo, you may be feeling great physically, but there is a nagging problem that you simply cannot identify. Give it time and it will come to the surface.

Aquarius, you may feel like escaping to a fantasy world, but that does not mean the pressing matters will simply disappear. A vacation may recharge your batteries. You are in much better shape than you think you are, Pisces. So don’t be too hard on yourself this week. It is alright to put your feet up.
