on a school bus stop sign exists, but the problem is provincial legislation, Blais said. Cameras are already used in Alberta and in some United States counties. Unlike a red-light camera, which acts as its own evidence of the crime, images from a camera mounted on a school bus stop sign are not admissible in court, meaning the bus driver would have to show up to corroborate the information. Blais already wrote to the minister of transportation and Ottawa-area MPs to request a change to the legislation that would allow automatic ticketing for stop-sign camera violations, similar to the way it’s done for red-light cameras.

On Feb. 12 he gave notice that he’ll bring a motion to the next city council meeting to ask for the city to officially back his push and write to the minister requesting the change. In the meantime, Blais said the city’s transportation department has a couple ideas in the works to tackle the issue. First, an education campaign including new roadside signs will launch this spring to remind drivers to stop behind school buses. Second, Blais is hoping the city will sponsor a pilot project to put the cameras on some school buses. The councillor has been discussing the issue with ML Bradley, the major school-bus operator in Cumberland and the city’s traffic department.

News – The number of drivers blowing past stop signs affixed to school buses has the city pursuing more options to nab – and educate – scofflaw motorists. In addition to a public education campaign, Cumberland Coun. Stephen Blais wants the city to push for the province to allow the installation of cameras on school bus stop-sign arms, similar to the ones used to catch drivers who run red lights. “We’ve had a lot of concern from school bus operators about more and more people running stop signs when redesigned with modern products

the school bus is stopped,” Blais said. The complaints prompted the police to do targeted enforcement in January and February. “It yielded good results in terms of they got a lot of people, but it’s bad results because it means a lot of people are going through stop signs,” Blais said. Police handed out more than 200 infractions for violations in school zones over two days in January, Blais said, adding that it’s “an outrageously high number.” That includes speeding, as well as failing to stop for a school bus, which carries a fine of between $400 and $2,000 and six demerit points on the first offence.

sons on Feb. 8 at the Shenkman Arts Centre. The winter carnival is one of the biggest events of the year for the BIA. The aim is to participate in an event per season; other events include the Orléans Festival and annual Christmas parade, which travels down St. Joseph Boulevard. Brown said one of her goals is to use more social media and develop more group interactions between businesses, such as through the BIA’s Facebook page. “We’d love to see a stronger relationship there,” she said. “It’s already established, so we’re trying to go to the next level and build on our foundation.” Only a month into the job, she said she is still working on meeting all the business owners along the strip. “The goal for this year is engaging our businesses more,” she said. She’d also like to continue the BIA’s goal of turning St. Joseph Boulevard into a more pedestrian-friendly area, where people will park and visit several businesses at once. This year is a strategic planning year, and she hopes to steer the future goals and projects for the BIA. “I’m aiming to be approachable and happy to talk to anybody if they want to be involved,” she said. “I want to make St. Joseph a place community happens.”

Queensway United Church holding 20th annual auction Donations have ranged from tattoos to homemade pies Adam Kveton

adam.kveton@metroland.com

Community - Queensway United Church is both holding and celebrating its 20th annual auction, representing two decades of church funding and support for the community. The 20th Annual Charity Dinner and Auction will take place at the Orléans Legion at 800 Taylor Creek Dr. on March 7, starting with a homemade lasagna dinner followed by both live and silent auctions. This year’s auction is particularly special, and shows how the small church continues to be “pretty powerful in the community,” said long-time organizer Patricia Lackie. The auction is one of the main fundraisers for the church, which includes about 85 families, said Lackie. “It helps with our operating budget, and that in turn allows our church to do the outreach projects that we like to do.” That includes things like support for Centre 507 and The Well day program for women, donations of gloves, underwear, and other winter items, and loans through Kiva, a non-

profit that helps people lend small amounts of money to entrepreneurs in the Third World to start their business. While the auction has enjoyed years of support from the community, it has undergone many changes to remain a success. The event began as a Time and Talent auction, with community members volunteering to rake leaves, drive to doctor’s appointments or do some gardening for the highest bidder. While those kinds of donations still comprise a small portion of the auction, more and more support is coming from businesses in the neighbourhood, said Lackie. Each year, Lackie and other organizers try and attract a few different kinds of donations to keep the community interested. “Last year we saw certificates for tattoos,” she said. “We have a local tattoo parlour here in Orléans, so they donated, and there are a lot of young people into tattoos.” The dinner before the auction is another new addition, with 80 tickets being sold last year, and over 100 people attending the auction. Organizers hope a similar number attend this year, where there will be about 100 items auctioned, ranging from dinner certificates, a return train trip to Quebec City, lemon meringue pie and more. Tickets are available by calling 613-8376784, or emailing queenswood.uc@rogers.

School board anticipates less support from province

News - The Ottawa public school board’s committee of the whole got a sneak peek at the 2014-15 budget on Feb. 11. The public consultation on the budget won’t happen until June, after the province announces funding, but the public school board is already looking at the pressures. “I think we have to assume there will be very little growth in the funding,” Mike Carson, the board’s superintendent of facilities, told trustees. The provincial deficit, coupled with the commitment to full-day kindergarten being in all schools by fall of 2015, will mean a fiscal crunch for all levels of government. “We need to make priorities,” Carson said. While the school board ended the year with a $45.8 million ur. Any 2013 timefiscal surplus, there xpire! in the .N evearer epressures form of future employee benefits, as well as increased transportation costs for busing high school students in the city’s urban transit area and pressures related to increased costs for snow removal because of the heavy snowfall this year. Meanwhile, the board will take in

an additional 2,000 full-day kindergarten students starting in September 2015. Carson said allocating $7 million for the future employee benefits should leave the board with a surplus of roughly $32 million. He said the board’s strategic plan would take into account its strategic priorities of emphasizing academic performance and student well being. See COMMITTEE, page 6

Committee considers using surplus to bridge funding gap Continued from page 5

Board chair Jennifer McKenzie said she was happy to see the board’s strategic plan was part of the discussion. “I would like to see us in a place where our strategic plan dictates the budget,” she said,

adding she would be looking for funding to work with the Youth Services Bureau of Ottawa on a project to engage street kids and get them back in classrooms. Several trustees were concerned about keeping the surplus down to ensure continued

funding levels from the province. Shirley Seward, who represents the zone that corresponds with River Ward, said she will hold budget consultations in her ward. “I think we need to look at closing the gap for students in

special education,” she said. “There is also a desperate need for EAs (educational assistants).” Lynn Scott, whose area covers Stittsville, West Carleton and Rideau-Goulbourn, said she thought the budget might be a good time to look

at realigning the board’s administration. “We have a lot of people doing cross-departmental work,” she said. “There may be a way to look at workload without adding too much additional staff.”

The board continued the budget process discussion on Feb. 20. Staff will recommend a finalized budget on May 13. The public school board will hear public delegations on May 26 and it will be approved by June 23.

According to the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority, the snowpack in the area is twice the depth normally measured in the middle of February, posing a significant risk to low-lying areas in the watershed. If we get significant rainfall during the remaining weeks of winter and early spring, that will only increase the flooding risk. While a flood risk may not be imminent, the conditions are ripe for there to be a significant threat as temperatures rise. Residents living in traditionally flood-prone areas are advised to watch for flood warnings that could be potentially issued by the conservation authority. This flood risk is borne not just by those who live near rivers and lakes in the area, but also by those who enjoy spending recreational time in city parks and other riverside areas. Especially at risk are children and pets, who could easily stray too close to high water and be pulled under by swift currents. This means parents need to explain the dangers to their children and keep them away from moving water. Dog owners likewise should keep

their pets on a leash whenever they are near rivers or ponds. Children and pets are also prone to venturing out on the rapidly thinning ice. In past years, the Ottawa Drowning Prevention Coalition has warned about the risks of thin ice, reminding residents that “one can never tell the true depth or the thickness of the ice by the colour on the surface.” The best advice is to simply stay off the ice. Emergency services typically responded to dozens of ice and waterway related calls at this time of year, and drownings are unfortunately an all-too-common occurrence. With the potential for increased flooding risk this spring, this trend threatens to continue if people fail to remain wary of the dangers. These tragedies are something no one wants to experience and it falls to all of us to stay safe near waterways this spring. Several authorities have made clear the risks presented by high river levels and thinning ice. It is now our responsibility to ensure everyone heeds those warnings. The last thing a parent, sibling, friend or pet owner wants to do is lose a loved one. Stay aware of the risks, heed the warnings and stay away from rivers, ponds and lakes until the threat has passed.

Change can be a double-edged sword

Y

ou get a little nervous when the people who make a product you like have started thinking. Sometimes thinking is the worst thing that can happen. Thinking means changing and sometimes changing is the worst thing you can do. That’s one reaction to a headline last week: “Tim Hortons brews up changes.” The story under the headline says that there has been a steady decline in the number of people buying food and coffee at Tims, because of the challenge of cheaper coffee at some competitors and greater varieties of coffee at others. The article goes on to suggest that the Tims will consider changes in everything from cup size to decor to doughnut selection. The notion of change is going to make some Tims fans nervous. Change is not always bad. Bigger bathrooms would be a hit with members of the travelling public who sometimes face lineups. But the thing Tims doesn’t want to change is its personality, which has always been its most important advantage. It seems to be a natural tendency in business for companies to imitate their competitors. This can result in a sameness that is frustrating for consumers looking for something distinct. Tims has so far avoided this. If you

It is true in other areas as well. A walk through the supermarket will tell you that. There is a great deal of choice among products that are the same. Take a listen to pop music. There is a sameness to it that drives many people away to the FM dial. To the average consumer, most mainstream cars are the same. Given all that, why would you change when

you have a distinctive personality? You might, perhaps, if you thought that consumers had changed. In terms of coffee places, have they? Political strategists have this theory that voters can be divided into Starbucks people and Tim Hortons people -- with the Tims people having suburban and rural lifestyles and voting Conservative, while the Starbucks people think like downtowners and vote Liberal and NDP. In reality, as opposed to politics, things are not so simple and neither are we. Most of us are a mixture. Sometimes we feel like taking the laptop to the Starbucks and splurging on some exotic coffee-related concoction. Other times we just feel like a coffee, quick and cheap, in a well-lit place where you don’t have to wait for a dozen people with laptops to vacate a table. (This last may change, now that Tims is offering free Wi-Fi.) On the road, people probably prefer Tims, the washrooms notwithstanding, because they are easier to find, have good parking and are kid-friendly. Those are things that Tims would be crazy to change. And they might be wary of offering new coffee flavours, since that just slows things up in the ordering line. If Tims is really thinking about serious change, here’s a vain hope that they might

consider getting out of the drive-thru business. The problems with drive-thru have been welldocumented, most notably clogged streets and emissions from all those idling vehicles, as well as slower service within the stores for those who had the energy to walk from their cars. The end of the drive-thru won’t happen unless municipal authorities see the light, which mostly they haven’t. But Tim Hortons could gain a lot of public goodwill by such a gesture. Then maybe other businesses would follow, since companies, as we have seen, tend to imitate their competitors.

How will you fund retirement?

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse things that block people from saving money. A big one is feeling like we simply don’t have enough money left over at the end of a pay cycle to save anything. But this is why the “pay yourself first” principle is sound. The idea is to have a certain amount of money removed from your bank account automatically each time you get paid. Think you’ll miss it? Well, start small. What if you had $10 per week directly debited from your account into a registered retirement savings fund? Of course, I know what you’re thinking – how is $10 per week supposed to fund my retirement. Put simply, it won’t. But it will go a long way toward getting you into the habit of savings.

Think about it: if the average career lasts 35 years, followed by a 25 year retirement, it would make sense that we save up to 42 per cent of income during our working lives to fund those golden years. Despite these realities, most of us – around 70 per cent, in fact – aren’t saving at all. With the lure of low interest rates and cheap credit, we are a society up to our eyeballs in debt. Any good financial planner would tell you eliminating debt is the most important first step toward financial security. At the same time, experience has taught me that there is no harm in saving simultaneously. If you think you don’t have a penny to spare, it may be time to reconsider. There are a number of

new poll from Sun Life and Ipsos Reid suggests nearly a quarter of Canadians expect to rely on the value of their homes for retirement income, with 17 per cent expecting home equity to be their main income source. Perhaps more illuminating is that 60 per cent of Canadians have no work pension plan, which of course means we should be saving big bucks for retirement. Sadly, less than a third of people surveyed suggest their personal savings would make up any of their retirement income. Let’s face it, saving seems hard. Most of us have considerably less disposable income than the previous generation. At the same time, the cost of living continues to increase dramatically. Nevermind that savings expectations would have been less in the early part of the last century, given that most people worked until the moment they died. But life expectancy has increased – and it sometimes seems insurmountable to think about funding a retirement that may last a quarter century.

Develop savings habit over lifetime Continued from page 9

The “why bother saving if it’s only a few bucks per week?” is a huge thing that deters people from saving at all. The thing is, once you’re in the savings habit, you can start to increase the percentage you save over time. One of my favourite TED Talks of all time is called “How to save for tomorrow tomorrow,” by behavioural economist Shlomo

Benartzi. His theory is that we don’t save because we can’t afford it today, but we tell ourselves that next month, next year, or at some point in the future we will have more money and then we’ll start saving. The problem is, with this way of thinking, tomorrow never happens. Instead, Benartzi says we should establish that savings for tomorrow now. If you know that you’re going to get a cost of living allowance

increase or a raise six months from now, contact your financial institution and tell them that, on that date, you want your savings contribution increased by the same percentage as your income increase. At the end of the day, it all comes down to ownership. If you’ve never had the money in your hot little hands – whether it’s that initial contribution of $10, or a small percentage increase off your raise – you’ll never miss it. I guarantee it.

Do you know what to do when involved in a collision? News - The Ottawa police offer tips about the do’s and don’ts when involved in a collision. The first and most important thing to do when involved in a collision is checking for injuries: yourself, your passengers and the other vehicle’s occupants. Always call 911 if there are

injuries, whether minor or serious. Helpful reminders:

• Collisions with damages that appear to be over $1,000 have to be reported to police immediately. If the vehicles are drivable, parties involved

must drive to the closest police station to report the collision. • There is key information to be exchanged prior to leaving the scene of the collision; the driver’s licence, valid insurance and vehicle registration for all involved vehicles. • There is no need to contact police

if the collision is minor, there are no injuries and damages are estimated to be less than $1,000. However, drivers should still exchange key information before driving away. • Ensure all pertinent information is exchanged at the scene with all involved vehicles. This will assist the

investigation in cases where one of the drivers fails to attend the police station; as well as help you respond to questions from your insurance company. The Ottawa police non-emergency number is 613-230-6211, and the main number for all enquiries is 613-2361222.

News - With the flu season in full swing, Ontario’s doctors are encouraging people who are sick to stay home. “I can’t stress it enough going to work while sick is bad for you and potentially worse for your colleagues,” said Dr. Scott Wooder, president of the Ontario Medical Association. “Staying home to rest will help you to manage your illness and prevent others from getting infected. Think about those around you, and please don’t take the flu to work.” The flu is highly contagious. Most cold and flu viruses are spread because people touch surfaces and then touch their faces, other objects and other people. Employers should encourage workers to stay home when sick – not require sick notes – which has a discouraging effect and forcing patients into the doctor’s office when they are sick only encourages the spread of germs to those in the waiting room, who in some cases are often more vulnerable. People such as children, seniors and those living with chronic diseases are more susceptible to the flu and are a greater risk from its complications. Following a few basic guidelines

Mother’s lessons on life proved invaluable

S

ometimes I got tired of listening to what Mother called her “lessons on life.” Just about everything I did provided me with a lesson on life according to Mother. I had to admit, most of them rolled off me like rain off a duck’s back, but she persevered. Oh, how she persevered. We learned early about honesty. According to Mother, honesty was right up there with going to church every Sunday. Modesty was another thing she preached about. It took my sister Audrey to explain to me that the modesty Mother was preaching about had nothing to do with running around the house in our flourbag underwear, or taking our

MARY COOK Memories Saturday night bath in front of everyone in the kitchen. It had everything to do with bragging about ourselves. And certainly envy, could lead us straight to hell in a hand basket. Then came the day when I learned about still another lesson on life. It had to do with a young girl who went to the Northcote School. Rather, she went to the Northcote School when she could. It wasn’t unusual for

her to miss several days in a row, and we all knew it had nothing to do with catching the measles or the whooping cough. It had everything to do with if she was needed at home. Even though she was only a few years older than I was, she was the oldest girl of a large family, and the chore of helping her mother often fell on her shoulders. We were poor like most other families around us deep in the De-

pression, but Audrey said her family was even poorer than we were. Her father worked in the bush miles from their farm, and was often away for weeks at a time. That left her mother to tend the farm, leaving little time to look after the younger children, so my little classmate, more often than not, had to stay at home to lend a hand. There was always a sadness about this young girl. You could see it in her face. She had long dark hair, and often she would tell me how she wished she had coloured ribbons like I had to tie it off her face. I knew without a doubt there simply wasn’t enough extra money for hair ribbons to replace the elastic she used to tie her

down, and I knew without a doubt, another lesson on life was coming -- she had that look about her. Mother said that when you did a good deed, if you told anyone about it, it erased the deed. I had a hard time grasping what she meant, since I knew I had done the deed, so how could it be erased? But Mother went on in great detail, telling me good deeds were no longer good deeds if you bragged about them. I still wasn’t convinced, but as always, Mother’s word was the law, so I kept to myself my giving the ribbons to my young classmate at the Northcote School. When she next came to school, several days later, so I knew she was needed at home, her long black hair was tied high on her head, and there was one of the long ribbons from the brown paper bag I had given her. She gave me the biggest smile, and neither of us said a word. No one knew but the two of us how she came to have brightly coloured ribbons tying up her long dark hair. A warm feeling came over me, and I knew then what Mother meant when she said a good deed is erased if you brag about it. Another lesson learned, and this one that has stayed with me since that day Mother sat me down in the kitchen so many years ago. Interested in an electronic version of Mary’s books?

hair up in a knot on the top of her head. My hair ribbons were bought at Walker’s Store in Renfrew only if Mother had a few extra pennies from selling her wares door to door, but at least I had hair ribbons. So I decided I would take two or three of my best ribbons, put them in a little paper bag, and hand them to the young girl at school. It was on one of the rare days she was at school, and I told her not to open the bag until she got home. “No peeking,” I said. When I got home, I told Mother what I had done, and said I felt so good about it I was going to phone my best friend Velma and tell her about my good deed. Well, Mother told me to sit

Ottawans recycling more than half of household waste Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - For the first time since Ottawa introduced the green bin, residents are recycling more than half of household waste. Some of the material residents put into their green bins is ending up in the dump even though the city thinks it’s recyclable. That’s because Orgaworld, the facility contracted to process the organic waste, didn’t accept all the waste that was collected. A contract that’s currently in arbitration stipulates the city must provide 80,000 tonnes of processable organic waste each year. Even though the amount of organics collected jumped from 67,000 tonnes in 2012 to 83,000 in 2013, the city is still paying to process tonnes of those organic materials twice. Orgaworld only processed 69,000 tonnes or 83 per cent of the organic waste collected in 2013, said River Coun. Maria McRae, the chairwoman of the environment committee. “In a word, it’s disgraceful that we have collected 83,000 tonnes and all of that waste has not been processed,” McRae said. “This city did its job. Our residents did their job. We picked up 83,000 tonnes. Why is that not being processed? That’s the question we should ask.” Due to arbitration confidentiality there’s not much the city can say about the issue that’s preventing Orgaworld from accepting and processing all the organic waste put into green bins, said city solicitor Rick O’Connor. O’Connor said that arbitration decision –

and the completed city audit on the Orgaworld contract – will be made available to the public sometime this year, he said. The achievement of boosting the amount of material diverted from the landfill from 45 per cent in 2012 to 52 per cent in 2013 is a bittersweet milestone until the city can ensure all of that diverted material doesn’t end up in the Trail Road landfill, McRae said. The jump in diversion can mostly be attributed to a change in waste collection aimed at extending the lifespan of the city’s landfill, McRae said. In September of 2012, the city started collecting garbage every other week in an effort to get residents to put more waste in recycling bins. The green bin was introduced

in 2010. Those efforts have already extended the use of the landfill to about 2040, McRae said, putting off a very divisive and expensive effort to site a new landfill. MULTI-RESIDENTIAL UNITS LEFT OUT

Only 160 of the city’s estimated 1,000 multiresidential buildings – like condos and apartments – are using the green bin. That represents approximately 7,770 units across the city. Participation is voluntary for multi-residential buildings, McRae said. “If superintendents and landlords want to make it happen, we’re making it easier for

them,” she said. Organics recycling in multi-residential buildings began as a pilot project with 10 buildings in March of 2011. The city makes some efforts to encourage apartment buildings and condos to adopt the green bin: it provides smaller dumpsters and larger recycling bins to multi-residential buildings. There is also a new process for ensuring new multi-residential buildings, whether they are towers or townhomes, have space for green bins and recycling. “We realize there are constraints for older buildings from the ’60s and ’70s,” McRae said.

• 125 ml (1/2 cup) chopped toasted pecans Preparation instructions

Scrub the sweet potato and trim off the ends. Pierce it with small knife in several places; microwave at high setting for six to eight minutes or until tender, turning over halfway through the cycle. Let the sweet potato cool enough to handle; remove skin and mash with a fork until smooth. Measure 250 ml (one cup) and place in a bowl. Whisk in butter, eggs, maple syrup, vanilla and salt

until smooth. Bake the tart shells on a baking sheet, in batches if necessary, in 190 C (375 F) oven for five minutes. Remove from the oven. Sprinkle pecans among partially baked shells, gently pushing down any puffed-up pastry. Divide sweet potato mixture among shells. Bake for 20 to 24 minutes or until filling is slightly puffed, almost set and pastry is lightly golden. Let it cool on a rack. Tip: Make filling in 1 L (4cup) glass measuring cup and it will be easy to pour into tart shells. Foodland Ontario

Active thinking leads to better grades them. In fact, the more that children develop this skill outside the classroom, the more they are able to apply it in class.” Dr. Whitehead outlines three simple steps for students to follow to practice their active thinking skills: • Before the activity,

school skills (such as studying, organization, and focus) active thinking is a skill that students need to be shown how to use. “Active learning is not a skill restricted to the classroom. Children (and adults, too) should always be thinking about the world around

whether it’s doing a craft or sitting down in class, students should pause to try reflect on what they already know about what they are going to do. This primes the brain to get it ready learn something new. • During the activity students should ask themselves

questions to draw connections or highlight details, like “What is this similar to?” • After the activity students can reflect on what they just learned. This can be done by creating summary notes. Students should attempt to draw similarities, no matter how

News - All students are active thinkers by nature, but not all students know how to think actively when it comes to classroom learning or athome studying. According to Oxford Learning’s CEO and founder, Dr. Nick Whitehead, this is because, like many other

random. Dr. Whitehead says that parents can encourage active thinking by prompting conversations about learning and by asking the right questions. Instead of asking, “how was school?”, more specific questions such as “how was math class?” or “what concepts did you learn today?” are more helpful.

Last remaining Hawker Typhoon on loan Continued from page 19

According to the museum, Hawker Typhoons saw active service throughout the war, most notably during operations in Normandy, and were flown by several Royal Canadian Air Force squadrons during the war, including the 440 Squadron based in Ottawa. “This is an important collaboration between two national museums,” said Stephen Quick, the aviation museum’s director. “It echoes the collaboration between two great nations during the Second World War, when young Canadian and British pilots flew together and tamed this wild aircraft.” The museum added it views this exhibition as a special way

for Canadians to also commemorate the 90th anniversary of the Royal Canadian Air Force. “This is an incredible opportunity for Canadians to see this unique aircraft and experience the stories and an incredible gift from the Royal Air Force Museum in loaning this aircraft for us to remember,” Quick said. Director for the Royal Air Force Museum in London, Peter Dye, said his museum feels privileged to support the aviation museum in honouring thousands of Canadian airmen who served alongside the Royal Air Force in the two world wars. “We are also delighted to be able to recognize the invaluable

support that Canada has played in helping to train British aircrew over the past century,” Dye said. “In loaning Hawker Typhoon MN235 we hope to be able to repay a small part of the immeasurable debt owed to the Royal Canadian Air Force and to honour its veterans for their selfless and enduring achievements.” After years in storage with the Smithsonian Institute, the Typhoon was returned to the Royal Air Force Museum in 1968. It became the centerpiece for the London museum in its D-Day commemorative display in 1994. For more information about the D-Day commemorations or the exhibit, visit aviation.technomuses.ca.

RUBY (A164680)

Meet Ruby (A164680), a fun-loving four-year-old Labrador and Doberman mix seeking an active home where she can run and play with her forever family. Ruby is a super-social gal who would love to be matched with an experienced owner with older kids who are as energetic as she is. Her first language is French but she’s a quick learner who would have no problem learning commands in any other language. She’d like to be the only dog in your life. Ruby would benefit from obedience training to help her bone up on her doggy manners so she can be the best dog possible.

Local Project Linus Chapter Receives Donation from Capital Memorial Gardens Thursday February 13 was a banner day for the local Project Linus Chapter that meets at Wool-Tyme. They were presented with a substantial cheque from the Arbor Memorial Foundation, the charitable foundation of Capital Memorial Gardens. With Wool-Tyme providing the yarn at wholesale prices, this donation will provide the Project Linus knitters with a year’s supply of yarn. This chapter of Project Linus has been providing blankets to sick children at CHEO since 1998. This dedicated group of volunteers has been meeting in the afternoons on the second and fourth Thursday of every month for 16 years (with the occasional cancellation due to weather). Each meeting is attended by an average of 10 people. From the laughter emanating from the classroom, the volunteers are enjoying the company, the tea, and most of all – seeing all the donated blankets that Ottawa Valley residents have taken the time to knit, crochet, or quilt. Stories are exchanged and the problems of the world solved while they sew the official Project Linus tags to the blankets. They have delivered over 12,700 blankets to the hospital.

Would you like to be involved with Project Linus? It’s easy and everyone is welcome. Donate some yarn or knit/ crochet a blanket or make some squares to be pieced together into a blanket. Donations (yarn or blankets) must be new material, machine washable and dryable, and be free of odours and pet hair. Donations of yarn or blankets can be dropped off at Wool-Tyme (190 Colonnade Rd S., Ottawa) during regular business hours. You can come and join the volunteers from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on the second and fourth Thursday of every month to sew on tags, piece together squares, or make blankets. Yarn from this wonderful donation will be distributed during the regular Project Linus meetings. R0012568276
