The awards were presented by CHEO staff, the prime minister’s wife, Laureen Harper, and Mayor Jim Watson. Youth, ages 7 to 25, attend the programming, which is held each Saturday at the Bob McQuarrie Recreation Complex. “We`re a unique program,” said association president Jamie Larkin. “We’re probably one of the only cityfunded programs that provide oneon-one (staff to participant ratios).” The program functions with six staff and 20 volunteers. The participants go swimming, play games, and participate in crafts, activities and outings. Larkin said that while parents benefit from the relief on the weekends for time to complete groceries or other errands, the benefit is really for the program participants. “It’s great for the kids because it provides social interaction between other children and youth,” he said. “It’s also very beneficial for the vol-

unteers. They learn a lot about values and ethics and how to work with kids with special needs.” He said most of the volunteers are high school students and the program participants look up to them. The program runs for three hours, and costs $600 for 10 months, September through June. The $600 doesn’t cover the full cost of the program, crafts and outings, so the money awarded by CHEO will go into a general fund. “We’re always at a shortfall, so that $500 will be well used,” he said.  Larkin said there are currently 20 youth in the program, and there is capacity for 24, so additional spaces are available. And while the main program is based out of Orléans, the group has also begun to run a sister program called Around the Campfire, in Kanata and Hintonburg. They offer music programs, run by the same board as the GACSN, in partnership with the city. For more information on the assocation, visit www.gacsn.org.

News - A total of 999 extra employees on the city’s payroll broke the $100,000 earnings mark in 2013. The province released its annual “sunshine list” of public employees who earned more than $100,000 and 2,188 City of Ottawa staffers are among the almost 100,000 names on the list. The police service saw the largest jump in the number of employees earning more than $100,000 in Ottawa. They recorded a salary bump from 2012 to 2013, which resulted in 670 police employees being added to the list for a total of 1,039. Police Chief Charles Bordeleau brought home $253,474 in 2013. Police officers aren’t the only emergency personnel on the list – it includes around 400 Ottawa firefighters and 155 paramedics. Firefighters also received a pay increase from an arbitration award. Aside from police, 1,149 city employees made the list in 2013 – up 329 from the year before. The salaries of 41 per cent of the city employees on the list – 470 people – were actually under $100,000, but they earned more because of retroactive payments, banked overtime hours or vacation cash-outs or on-call pay. The top-earning city employee was again the top boss – city manager Kent Kirkpatrick, who made $328,284 in 2013. The city’s chief medical officer of health, Dr. Isra Levy, wasn’t far

behind at $324,213. John Manconi, general manager of OC Transpo, took home $243,207, plus almost $9,000 in benefits. Mayor Jim Watson earned $168,102. The so-called “sunshine list” includes public-sector employees from the provincial government and municipalities, hospitals, school boards, post-secondary institutions and power generation authorities. University of Ottawa president Allan Rock earned $395,000 in 2013. Carleton University’s president, Roseann Runte, made $358,473. At Algonquin College, president Kent MacDonald brought home $334,654. La Cité Collégiale president Lise Bourgeois made $296,683. For local school boards, the Ottawa-Carleton District Public School Board’s director of education, Jennifer Adams, earned $212,951. Edith Dumont, the French public board’s director, brought home $179,780. The director of education for the Catholic board, Julian Hanlon, earned $236,485. His French Catholic counterpart, Bernard Roy, made $212,873. In local hospitals, Jack Kitts, CEO of the Ottawa Hospital, brought home $630,485. The Royal Ottawa Health Care Group’s president and CEO George Weber earned $381,160. Montfort Hospital president Bernard Leduc made $424,487.zOverall, the number of names on the “sunshine list” increased by 11 per cent to a total of 97,796.

Sir Wilfrid Laurier presents My Fair Lady musical Brier Dodge

brier.dodge@metroland.com

Arts - Flower salesgirl Eliza Doolittle will come to life in Orléans, as the theatre group at Sir Wilfrid Laurier Secondary School puts on the musical My Fair Lady. The performance runs from April 9 to 11 at the school, and includes Grade 9 to 12 students as well as the school’s pit band. Students will tell the story of Eliza Doolittle, who sells flowers and takes lessons to perfect her British accent from Henry Higgins, in an attempt to be a high class woman. “It’s a play about phonetics and feminism,” said Grade 12 student Natasha Gaucher, who plays Eliza Doolittle. “It’s about trying to turn Eliza into a proper lady.” The school puts on an anspring performance, Any tour. Any tnual ime.involves e! which pirstuNevenot r exonly dent actors, but musicians and costume designers. Henry Higgins is played by Grade 11 student Ryan Griffith. He and Natasha both said Brier Dodge/Metroland Grade 12 student Natasha Gaucher acts out the role of Eliza Doolittle during a rehearsal at the hardest part of learning Sir Wilfrid Laurier Secondary School. The students present My Fair Lady from April 9 to 11. My Fair Lady has been mas-

tering the singing. The first time they ran through the play, it took about three hours, but the students are working on cutting it down to be under two-and-ahalf hour show. Many students who took part last year graduated, so this year’s cast is heavy on junior students in grades 9 and 10. “It’s a new experience for

them, so we need to teach them how it works,” Natasha said. “But I love this musical, it has a great story.” Ryan said the school has put on several other fun performances, like the Wizard of Oz, but he thinks My Fair Lady will be their one of his top. “It’s the best (performance) we’ve done so far,” Ryan said. “It’s a lot of fun.”

Worse construction season than last year: city Weekend, overnight lane closures on east-end 417 Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - Ottawa residents should brace for an even busier road construction season than last year, the city says. From highway lane restrictions and ramp closures to road resurfacing and the complete closure of Belfast Road and St. Joseph Boulevard, the upcoming roadworks are sure to put more bumps in your commute than last year, said Phil Landry, director of traffic operations. The message again this year is clear: walk, cycle or take the bus instead. OC Transpo is adding ridership capacity, especially in the east end, to account for anticipated traffic snarls. There will be space for 5,200 riders in the morning peak and 4,600 riders on the way home from work between the downtown and Orléans. This year, 540 buses will have bike racks. Landry said commuters have been spared what would have been the most massive construction headache to date: all-day lane restrictions the construction contractor proposed for eight weeks on Highway 417. The city rejected

that outright, Landry said. “It would create unimaginable delays and was unacceptable for the city and residents,” he said. Instead, the (417) will be reduced to two lanes between Nicholas Street and the split only on weeknights and on weekends from 9 p.m. on Friday to 6 a.m. on Monday for six weeks starting in late May. “The work between Nicholas and the split continues to be our single biggest challenge with respect to overall mobility throughout the city this year with impacts being felt to the east and west well outside of the project’s limits,” Landry said. Highway 417 ramp closures will also make motorists’ lives more difficult throughout the summer. It will start with the northbound Vanier Parkway on-ramp to the westbound 417 closing for two weeks later this month, followed by the southbound on-ramp to the eastbound 417 closing for four weeks in May. The northbound on-ramp on Riverside Drive to the westbound 417 will close down this month, causing delays. The northbound St. Laurent Boulevard on-ramp to the westbound 417 will close for four weeks in May and June, while the southbound on-ramp on St. Laurent will only shut down on weekends for four weeks in May and June. Overall, the city will spend $127

million on 80 projects to renew roads and utilities or build new infrastructure representing 50 kilometres of roads in total. Four million dollars of that is slated to improve congested intersections, while $2 million is dedicated exclusively to 13 projects to build 6.5 km of new cycling facilities. That includes the start of construction on a pedestrian bridge over the Rideau River, connecting Somerset Street East in Sandy Hill with Donald Street in Overbrook. Some road construction budgets also include cycling facilities. The spring roadwork season will kick off with street sweeping starting April 14. Concentrated operations downtown will take place until April 17, including parking restrictions that affect permit holders. Signs will be posted, similar to the process used to clear snowbanks. ROAD CLOSURES

By far the longest-running traffic impact will be the two-year complete closure of Belfast Road between Coventry Road and Trainyards, Landry said. Tremblay Road will remain open, but the long-term closure is needed for construction on the depot for light-rail trains, in addition to the rehabilitation of the road and bridge. It’s not the only long-term clo-

Main Street itself has been delayed again and is now slated to begin next year, Landry said. CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS

The city is urging residents to find other modes of transportation as an even busier construction season ramps up. sure: St. Joseph Boulevard, a major artery in Orléans, will but shut down completely between Tenth Line and Dairy Drive all summer. Major impacts on Lees Avenue will begin in June but the highway overpass will be completely closed in the fall. Work will begin on the foundation of the highway overpass and pillars will be repositioned in June. The new bridge will be moved into place in October. During that 12-week period, the overpass will be closed to vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians. OC Transpo route 16 will also be detoured. Reconstruction of the rest of Lees Avenue to Main Street will take place during the same time. However, the reconstruction of

The MacDonald Cartier Bridge to Gatineau will see lane reductions this year as the federal government undertakes some rehabilitation work. The traffic control and impact from that project will extend down King Edward Avenue, Landry said. Watermain work on St. Laurent Boulevard, Coventry and Ogilvie roads will restart in May. Work on the Orléans watermain will also affect Youville Drive, St. Joseph and Jeanne D’Arc boulevards, but the construction schedule hasn’t been decided. The city will also spend more than $51 million to repave roads this year. The rough winter took a toll on roads but no additional work is planned because of the pothole-filled spring, however, Landry said the city re-arranged the schedule to repave some streets sooner. Bumpy Highway 174 will be resurfaced this spring and summer. St. Laurent Boulevard and Stonehenge Crescent are also set to be resurfaced. Some road projects that begain last year, including on Rideau Street, Elgin Street, Montreal Road, Queen Street and Sussex Avenue, Trim Road, the Hunt Club/417 interchange, the Minto Bridges and the Jockvale Bridge will continue this season.

Sometimes you just have to get your hands dirty Everyone knows the creative process can be rewarding and fulfilling for adults without being messy. But, let’s face it: sometime getting your hands dirty is half the fun. It’s not just for kids anymore. Whether you want your creativity to be mucky and yucky, or clean and pristine, there is bound to be something interesting near you listed in the City of Ottawa’s Recreation eGuide available at ottawa.ca/recreation. There is probably no better way to make a mess than through pottery. Artists at the Nepean Visual Arts Centre produce more than 50,000 pieces of art each year. This year, some of them can be yours. Think about Sculptural Handbuilding or maybe the Wheel and Handbuilding Combo. For a splash of colour in your work area there are painting classes of various media offered across the city. Whether you are a beginner or an expert, you can work with oil, acrylic, watercolour or mixed media, or explore abstract expression. Does the class Canvas and Cocktails sound appealing? Try Ukrainian Egg Painting where you can learn to create beautiful eggs in time for Easter. Garden Journal offers outdoor field study in pencil or watercolour of wildflowers. Found or made objects from plastic can be duplicated in the Simple Silver Casting class. If you would like to eat your art, there are cooking classes available for young and old alike. If you really want to keep your hands clean while being creative, there are several classes available across the city that involve drawing, sketching, bead jewellery, calligraphy and screen writing. Learning more about your digital camera will be useful for taking those summer holiday photos. Try some very different classes with the Blacksmith Apprenticeship Program at Cumberland Heritage Village Museum or Chivalrous Sword Handling at Plant Recreation Centre.

EDITORIAL

Separate fact from fiction

T

he best man in Ottawa has taken a tumble courtesy of some shotgun silliness emerging from yet another sensitivity-spooked sports organization in the capital. A couple weeks ago, the Ottawa RedBlacks introduced Big Joe Mufferaw as the football team’s new mascot to the applause of hundreds of delighted children at the Kanata French public school in Morgan’s Grant. The school’s vice-principal, Matthieu Vachon, said Mufferaw was “a wonderful choice of name.” “Jos Montferrand is a pioneer of French language rights in Ontario, so it’s a great choice of name for the mascot of the team, and it shows the heritage of Ottawa and eastern Ontario,” he said. It’s important to note that Big Joe Mufferaw is a fictional character created by Ottawa Valley author Bernie Bedore that was inspired by the exploits of a French Canadian logger. But only three days after the announcement, following a string of “several” complaints, the Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group, the group that owns the RedBlacks, gave the name the old heave-ho, deciding to go with Big Joe or Grand Jos. Apparently, the sports group was deluged with “several” emails and phone calls (it didn’t quite reach “dozens” proportions) complaining how the name was an anglicized version of Montferrand.

And don’t forget the “several” people who expressed their displeasure over the Twitterverse, with messages denouncing the football team’s sensitivity to the sensitivities of French Canadians. It’s time for a reality check: Big Joe Mufferaw is a fictional character. You can dislike a fictional character. You can refuse to read a book or watch a movie about a fictional character. But it’s more than a little silly if you try to stop others from reading or watching movies about a fictional character. Clearly, the Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group (OSEG) were a little gun shy about offending francophones, considering it was only a few months away from the newly created team’s season opener at Lansdowne Park. OSEG should have shown a little backbone and stuck with their original choice. Ottawa’s professional sports teams are already starting to earn a reputation for being wishy washy. It’s been little more than a year since Ottawa’s franchise professional basketball team dropped the name TomaHawks, following complaints from several fans, who claimed the team name misappropriated First Nations culture. Tomahawk – it’s an inanimate object. History has shown us that a small and determined group of people can make a real difference in this world. But sometimes they shouldn’t.

f you know Ottawa at all, you know that it is a city of cults. There are little groups, hundreds of them scattered about, that are interested in the most out of the way things. You might think you are the only one fascinated with, say, the political thought of M.J. Coldwell or the proper way to cook an eel, but there is probably a group meeting about that right now. For a while it appeared that people who believed in the arrival of spring were another oddball aggregation. But it turns out maybe they were right. This is by way of an introduction to a unique meeting that happened a couple of weeks ago when the former Montreal Expos outfielder, Ellis Valentine, was in town. An invitation went out to meet him and help the Miracle League of Ottawa, a group that helps special-needs children, young adults and adults play baseball on specially-constructed fields. Valentine didn’t play long enough for the Expos -- six years -- to become one of the team legends -- except to the cult. He was traded away in the middle of the 1981 playoff season and wasn’t around for some of the exciting times that followed. But he

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town was a fine hitter and outfielder, known for his throwing arm. Before Gary Carter, Andre Dawson and Tim Raines emerged as stars, Valentine was the best guy on the Expos, an all-star in 1977. And, of course, there are people who remember that, even though Valentine had not been in an Expos uniform for more than 30 years. So they came to a Westboro pub, helped the cause, got autographs and heard Valentine, who had arrived from Texas, give a graceful little speech about the Expos, baseball and the Miracle League. It would be fair to say that this cult consisted largely of middle-aged men and men who wished they were still middle-aged. Some of them were wearing Expos uniform shirts and there was a guy wearing a Phillies

uniform too. We all stood in line for autographs and a chance to chat. Which is to say that you’re never too old to be fanatical about stuff. And that doesn’t apply just to Westboro. There were undoubtedly many other unexpected events taking place in other Ottawa venues the same night. The quintessential thing about being in a cult is that you believe, no matter what. A couple of days later the cult of the Expos had grown into a wave, gathered at the Olympic Stadium in Montreal, ostensibly to watch an exhibition baseball game between the Toronto Blue Jays and the New York Mets, but really to will into existence a new major league baseball team for Montreal. Montreal has been without one since 2004. For two days, the Olympic Stadium was filled in a way that the Expos had not been able to fill it in their last doomed years. This may also have had something to do with being desperate for arrival of spring. Whatever the reason, they packed the place with roaring voices and Expos shirts that had been in the bottom drawer for many years. It was an impressive show, a demonstration of hope. It may not succeed, because it is up against the irrational realities of sports capitalism, but it was moving to see.

Among the group at the Ellis Valentine night were people involved in bringing baseball back to what used to be called the Lynx Stadium next year. That’s another demonstration of hope. The Lynx, in the 1990s, rode a wave of baseball enthusiasm in Ottawa and then suddenly the wave disappeared. Maybe it can reappear. Stranger things happen every day in this town. Meanwhile, it is comforting to be reminded that, no matter how arcane is your interest, no matter how distant your target, in Ottawa you are not alone. How’s that eel tasting?

How can we keep seniors out of isolation?

L

F

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse those 14 years and under for the first time at some point in the next seven years. There are a number of reasons to be concerned about that – primarily the economic and health burden this represents. But on a human level, what are we, as a society, doing to ensure that our elderly are not socially isolated? If I may be so bold, we’re not doing enough. A new study from the Institute for Marriage and Family Canada suggests that social isolation among our elderly is a growing problem, and a significant one. “Research shows that social isolation is as strong a factor in early death as smoking 15 cigarettes a day and alcohol consumption,” writes author Derek Miedema in a report released on April 9. In fact, the 20 per cent of Canadians over 65 who do not participate in frequent in social activities, or those who are otherwise isolated, are at higher risk for chronic disease, including “lung disease, arthritis,

impaired mobility and depressive symptoms,” according to a 2013 report on the subject cited by Miedema. He notes that social isolation, while it can occur at any age, is a growing problem as the population ages. A report out of King’s College in London, he notes, found the elderly, often retired, lose essential day-to-day contacts over time. They also experience death of family and friends more frequently than those in younger demographic cohorts. Further, many are forced to move out of their established neighbourhoods at a time when they are already experiencing loneliness. In the institute’s report, a number of successful case studies are presented as best practices for helping to reduce social isolation among seniors. One is a seniors community centre in Boston that has received a wealth of public funding and offers everything from exercise classes to citywide excursions. Others are more simple, including a “school-to-seniors home” pen pal exercise and monthly spaghetti dinners run by church groups. My children’s school offers opportunities for the active re-

tired to come into the school on a regular basis to help children with reading and supervise lunch activities. But we all could do more. Policy-makers need to consider social isolation when approving new community housing plans. How can new communities incorporate not just housing, but shops and services that are walkable and green space that would encourage people, including seniors, to get outside? Part of Toronto’s tower renewal project, established in 2008, is to do just that. Toronto is helping property owners and developers of 1,200 high-rise towers built decades ago to refurbish them to make them more sustainable and more accessible. The next big phase involves rezoning that would allow many of these currently isolated residential spaces to incorporate stores, dentist’s offices and pharmacies on their main levels. In Ottawa, the inspiration of Mayor Jim Watson’s seniors summit seems to have plateaued recently. As it picks up momentum, I hope the city will consider prescribed roles for each of us in Ottawa’s older adult action plan, specifically those that work to keep our seniors from isolation.

ast winter I was at the tail end of a large research project for a client. I rented a hotel room downtown to use as office space. I spent several days and evenings looking out the window between paragraphs. It was the closest I’ve been to observing people in isolation. Perhaps “people in isolation” isn’t the best way to phrase it: As I looked down into the windows of the apartments around me, I saw people who were isolated. It was quite a jarring experience, really. Here they were, in the centre of a large city, yet many of them seemed to sit alone, day in and day out. Most of them were elderly. Most of them didn’t shut their curtains at night; no need to reopen them in the morning. Many sat in the same chair, watching television and receiving no visitors. At a glance, it may seem that this microcosm has nothing to do with the larger reality. But research into social isolation -- particularly for Canada’s aged population -- suggests it is an accurate depiction of a wider trend. According to Statistics Canada, the number of Canadians over 65 will outnumber

More than just toasts Michelle Nash

News - Have you ever feared having to stand up in front of a crowd to give a speech? Besides the age-old remedy of picturing everyone in the audience naked, the Ottawa East Toastmasters have another answer in mind: join the group every Monday to learn how to become a strong, confident speaker. The Ottawa East Toastmasters host meetings at the Overbrook Community Centre each week, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. The

focus and topics change every week, and as the weeks pass by, club president Al Sullivan said members transform

and after a speech, the speaker gets evaluated by their peers. It’s not as bad as you may thing, said long-time member

“It was like a wall was shattered,” Kamal Houssain

from nervous, uncomfortable speakers to strong, confident, organized individuals. “A lot of people think it is just about public speaking, but it is so much more,” he said. But don’t think there aren’t any speeches. The club’s activities revolve around speeches,

Bertillia Christian, it’s neither scary nor uncomfortable or nerve-wracking. Speakers have the opportunity to receive mentoring, positive criticism and encouragement. At the end of the day, Sullivan said, the whole point is

to become more comfortable and excel at the club as well as in life. “Everything that we do in this meeting applies to what you do in life,” Sullivan said. “It covers all topics and aspects of your life.” And the group has many success stories. Julie Pangilinan, an Orléans resident and the club’s membership coordinator, joined because as a business owner, she found she always felt uncomfortable speaking to groups. Now she said she still sometimes feels nervous, but is pleased with her progress and enjoys the relaxed environment. The evening is also meant to be a socializing event. For Kamal Houssain, he said he always wanted to join

the Toastmasters and when he moved to Ottawa from Calgary, he decided to finally take the plunge and join the eastend group. Since attending his first meeting four years ago, Houssain has become an awardwinning speaker. “It was like a wall was shattered,” he said. “You learn so much and I encourage anyone to come and try. It is a supportive, friendly environment. I have learned so much, not only about speak, but about myself.” Acknowledging the fact that although the group covers all residents in the east-end, meeting in Overbrook has made the organization want to reach out to the neighbourhood.

Sullivan said he has met with the Overbrook Community Association to discuss ways the two organizations can work together. More information about the group is available at eastottawa.org. Sullivan said new members are always welcome at the group’s weekly meetings.

Greek salad kabobs loaded with vegetables Lifestyle - Kabobs are a fun, quick and easy way to serve vegetables. Turn them into a meal by adding cooked, cubed pork or lamb and serve in a pita. Preparation time: 15 minutes. Standing time: 15 minutes. Serves four -makes eight kabobs. Ingredients

• 175 ml (3/4 cup) plain yogurt • 1 clove garlic, pressed through garlic press • 15 ml (1 tbsp) minced red onion • 10 ml (2 tsp) red wine vinegar and extra-virgin olive oil • 4 ml (3/4 tsp) dried oregano • 0.5 ml (1/8 tsp) each salt and freshly ground pepper Kabobs

• Four mini cucumbers • Half each sweet red, yellow and orange pepper • 24 grape tomatoes • 8 leaves of Boston or leaf lettuce • 45 ml (3 tbsp) Greek feta cheese Preparation

In a small bowl, stir together the yogurt, garlic, onion, vinegar, oil, oregano, salt and pepper. Cover the dressing and refrigerate it for at least 15 minutes or up to one day.

For the kabobs, cut each cucumber into six pieces. Cut each pepper into eight chunks. On eight, 20-centimetre (eight-inch) bamboo or metal skewers, thread one piece each of cucumber, pepper and tomato; repeat twice. Brush each kabob liberally with dressing and place on a lettuce-lined platter or individual plates. Sprinkle with feta and serve with remaining dressing. Tip: Set out small bowls of prepared vegetables and have the kids create their own kabob combination. Foodland Ontario

Model T Ford kicks the ghost temporarily MARY COOK Memories as we headed down Raglan Street, looking for a place to park the Model T. And suddenly, just like the run-down of a windup clock the Model T gave a gasp, and stopped dead in the middle of the street. Father shoved the gas lever up and down, pulled on the choke, and the car with a mind of its own, sat there like a big black lump of clay. Father got out with the crank, and with the sweat pouring off his face, his arm flying off the crank on occasion, and the Model T, like a rebellious child refused to catch. It wouldn’t have been so bad if Father had been able to steer the car into the curb, but there it sat, right in the middle of Raglan Street. Audrey offered me a nick-

back floor where I had to sit being the youngest, and from which point all I could see was the Northcote Side Road zooming by. It was a lovely day for a first drive, Mother commented, as Father turned out of our lane, and passed Briscoe’s General Store. I could hear the purr of the engine, as he worked the lever under the steering wheel increasing the speed. It was a bone shattering ride over the washboard road, and the dust blew into the open car like brown clouds. My sister Audrey wisely brought a silk scarf, which she tied around her face. The rest of us covered our eyes as best we could. Father cut the gas back

el if I would change places with her. She wanted on the floor so no one would see her. I said I would consider it for a dime. All she had was a nickel, so I stayed crouched on the floor. Mother was fanning herself with her purse in the front seat, Emerson said he would meet us at Thacker’s Garage when Father got the car going, and Everett and Earl decided they would have a look in the Five and Ten Cent store. Mother said everyone would stay exactly where they were. “We aren’t going to traipse all over Renfrew when we get the car going and are ready to go home,” she said. “If we get the car going,” Audrey said, from under the silk scarf, which now covered her entire face except for her eyes, reminding me of a picture of someone from a foreign land in a book I brought home from the Renfrew Library. A crowd had gathered on the sidewalk in front of Scott’s Hardware where the car had broken down. Mother waved to a few of them just as if it was an everyday occurrence to be stopped dead

in the middle of the main street of Renfrew. “Nice day,” she said. The people nodded in return. Mr. Scott came out of the store, assessed the situation, and deciding the problem was doing nothing for his business, he offered to have the two men on his staff, with the help of Father and my three brothers, start pushing the car towards Thacker’s Garage. Mother stayed in the front seat, I got off the floor, Audrey shot down like a bullet to take my place, and the car with Father behind the wheel started slowly down Raglan Street to Thacker’s garage. It didn’t take long for Mr. Thacker to figure out what was wrong, and he circled the car, shaking his head, kicking the tires with the toe of his boot, and telling Father the car wasn’t long for this world. Whatever Mr. Thacker did, the car was purring like a kitten when we pulled out of the garage, and Mother said she was sure we could manage without stopping for supplies for one week, and that the best thing we could

do was head for Northcote. You couldn’t hear what Mother was saying to Father in the front seat, but he pulled into Briscoe’s General Store on the way home. She said once we stopped, since we hadn’t spent any money in Renfrew, she saw no reason why we couldn’t all have an ice cream cone. Father wasn’t taking any chances. While we five children and Mother traipsed into the store, Father stayed in the car with the motor running just in case the old Model T took another notion to give up the ghost.

inally!” Mother said, as Father backed the old Model T out of the drive shed where it had been sitting up on blocks since the first heavy snowfall. That meant our trips into Renfrew no longer meant hitching up the horse and cutter, or in some cases, the team and the flat-bottom sleigh every Saturday for our weekly supplies. We were all so excited. Mother said she saw no reason why we five children couldn’t go in as well, since it was our first trip with the car that year. It didn’t take long for us to get out of our Saturday work clothes and into our next-toSunday-best, wash our faces, comb our hair, and make sure our necks were clean. Why anyone in Renfrew would give a hoot in Hades if the Haneman children had clean necks or not was a mystery to me. The old car sure wasn’t much to look at, with one back door missing, a fender that was painted an entirely different colour from the rest of the car, and a hole as big as a pie plate in the

Urminsky running for Innes-Beacon Hill-Cyrville trustee seat Brier Dodge

brier.dodge@metroland.com

News - Michael Urminsky is running for school board trustee in the English public board for zone 12, which encompasses Innes Ward and Beacon Hill-Cyrville. He is currently a negotiator for the Professional Institute of the Public Service of Canada, and has never run for an elected official position. He currently has one child in public school, and will have two come September. He lives within the zone. Q: Why are you running for

trustee? A: I’ve always wanted to turn my hand at municipal politics, but mainly because I have two kids in the school system and I’m increasingly concerned about it. I want to make sure they have a good school system to go to for their educational life and I want to make sure we build good schools in Ottawa. Mainly, I have kids in the system and I want to build strong schools in the community because they’re going to be important in our children’s future. Q: What has your involvement in the community been?

Thank you!

A: I’ve always been involved in the community. Recently in Ottawa, and most relevant to the school system, I’m a member of the Ottawa Carleton District School Board’s parent involvement committee. I’ve always been involved in my children’s school’s parent council, and I’m a volunteer for the United Way. I sit on their community investment committee. I’m involved extensively with human rights organizations and trade unions. Q: What is the most important issue for schools in your zone? A: I think the biggest issue for

schools in my zone, and beyond my zone, is the recent attention that has been given to the EQAO scores. (They) have been falling in the OCDSB. I’m concerned with our children’s fluency and what is going to be a critical skill in the 21st century. I’d say implementing the board’s work plan on mathematics. It’s going to be important that that is followed through on and implemented in as many schools as possible. There’s a lot of exciting stuff happening already, but its more than organizing a few workshops. Michael Urminsky is running for

Ottawa teen inspires cop’s anti-bullying fight Tyler Follett

tyler.follett@metroland.com

News – In October 2011, Tad Milmine was browsing the Internet when he came across a news story about Jamie Hubley, a Kanata teenager who took his own life following years of bullying. Milmine was reminded of his own difficult childhood, when he was bullied at school, causing him to turn into an introvert with low self esteem. Inspired by Jamie’s story, the B.C. police officer decided to start an anti-bullying program called Bullying Ends Here, where he would travel to schools across Canada and share his story with students.

I didn’t want to be that guy that reads headlines anymore just hoping the world becomes a better place. Tad Milmine

One of his biggest goals is to make himself available to children who are distressed about being bullied. Bullying Ends Here attempts to teach students not to be bystanders and to work together collectively to stamp out the social problem. Milmine, formerly a constable in the RCMP, joined the Calgary Police Force in March. “I still remember the moment I read the story about Jamie and I remember thinking, ‘That’s it’,” he said. “I didn’t want to be that guy that reads headlines anymore just hoping the world becomes a better place. I’ll try to do something.” On March 27, Sen. Mobina

Tyler Follett/Metroland

Tad Milmine, left, and Austin Bender, right, in the Senate ahead of a March 27 session. Milmine was inspired by the story of Ottawa’s Jamie Hubley, a teen who took his own life after years of bullying, to start the anti-bullying progam Bullying Ends Here. Jaffer introduced Milmine to the Senate, recognizing him for his continued work over the past year and a half to curb bullying. He was joined by Austin Bender, a 16-year-old Calgary boy who had been bullied in school and who reached out to Milmine following one of his anti-bullying presentations. “I first met Tad when he was

at a Gay & Straight Alliance round table in Calgary,” said Bender. “Through that I got more involved in the LGBT community.” Milmine left a lasting impression on the youth, inviting him to join him on his trip to the Senate. “The program is really exploding and Tad was happy

to get youth involved,” said Bender. Milmine visits more than 300 schools every year. “I throw my heart and soul out there during presentations,” Milmine said. “I don’t have anything to hide about me, I’m too old for that.” He takes pride in his availability for those in need, per-

sonally answering every single email he receives. This is a time-consuming project. Over the past year alone, he has received nearly 10,000 emails from teachers, students parents and others. Milmine said he’s encouraged by the positive response his talks have received from students.

As a not-for-profit group, he relies on donations and charitable contribution to help spread the message. “We’re totally reliant on donations, nobody gets paid. It’s simply just to get the message out,” said Milmine. “I know what I’m doing is the right thing. I know what I’m doing is helping and working, I get to see that first hand.”

An Easter Adventure at City of Ottawa Museums

Connected to your community

With Easter just over a week away, it’s time to shake off the chill of winter, welcome spring and enjoy the renewal that this time of year brings. It’s also time for the City of Ottawa museums to invite you back for a new season and the opportunity to spend time together as a family. Join us on April 19 to celebrate the traditions of spring as the Easter Bunny comes out of hiding at most of the City’s museums to spend time with the children and join them in the hunt for Easter eggs. There will also be petting zoos and gardening activities to help teach young visitors about agriculture’s place in Ottawa’s history. They will also learn about natural materials used to dye Easter eggs long before prepackaged kits became mainstream. Brier Dodge/Metroland

Depending on which museum and event you choose to attend, you may also find yourself helping to make sock bunnies, learning local historical trivia from giant carrots, and taking a turn with a balloon artist specializing in bunnies and baby chicks. At one museum, you’ll even discover new information about pop culture’s most famous bunnies – like Bugs Bunny, Peter Rabbit, Alice in Wonderland’s White Rabbit, and even the Duracell and Energizer bunnies.

Purple Day founder Cassidy Megan speaks to attendees at Purple Day for Epilepsy on March 29 at Ottawa City Hall.

Make sure to visit ottawa.ca/museums or our Facebook pages to find out about the activities offered at each museum or historic site. All of the museums will hold similar activities; however, there are unique aspects to each particular site. Choose the event and location that best suits your family’s interests.

Day of Purple recognizes epilepsy brier.dodge@metroland.com

News - From purple shirts to purple face paint and even a few purple hair extensions, the theme at city hall on March 29 was clear: purple was in. Day of Purple was held to recognize, as March as Epilepsy Awareness Month several days after the International Day of Purple, March 26, which fell on a Wednesday this year. Epilepsy is a neurological disorder which causes seizures, and can often be treated with medication. The day included speeches, a purple flag raising, balloons, face painting and a photo station with the caption Seize

The Day written on it. Purple Day was founded by Halifax’s Cassidy Megan, now 15, when she was in Grade 3. Cassidy, who has epilepsy, travelled to Ottawa with her family to take part in the day. She said she didn’t like to tell her friends that she had epilepsy as a child, because she thought they would make fun of her and tease her. “In Grade 2 the Epilepsy Association of Nova Scotia came to my school to do a presentation, and my class, I saw how understanding they were about it,” she said. “I decided to tell them that I had Epilepsy, and I started to see if there is anyone else out there that had it.” At age nine, she decided to found the day in Nova Scotia,

to raise awareness about Epilepsy. “It’s just amazing to see so many people here, I can’t believe it,” Epilepsy Ottawa-Carleton director Lori Timmins said, adding the event has quickly spread internationally. “Seeing a photo from Purple Day in Africa this year was just unbelievable.” Approximately 15,000 people in the Ottawa area have epilepsy, according to Epilepsy Ottawa-Carleton. Mayor Jim Watson attended the event to present the event organizers with a plaque, and help raise the purple flag next to the city’s Rink of Dreams. Purple Day is now celebrated in more than 70 countries around the world.

Fury fight back for draw with Orange Tyler Follett

tyler.follett@metroland.com

Sports – The Ottawa Fury came back from behind twice to draw Syracuse University Orange 2-2 on March 29. It was a good performance for a Fury team whose players are continuing to get to know each other. “The understanding between the players; we saw them play York and Rochester,” said head coach Marc Dos Santos. “Today the improvement is very big. You feel that it’s growing.” It was the final home preseason friendly for the Fury, before heading to Florida to continue training ahead of their season-opener in Fort Lauderdale on April 11. The game was played at the Branchaud-Briere Complexe in Gatineau, which has also hosted the team’s training camp. It was a busy day for a Fury squad that also unveiled their jerseys for the upcoming season at a launch party at Tailgator’s on Merivale Road. “It was a long day for the Tyler Follett/Metroland Ottawa Fury forward Carl Haworth, left, keeps a Syracuse Orange winger to the outside. players with the jerseys,” said Dos Santos. The teams met in a pre-season friendly game on March 29 in Gatineau. “The guys are eager to leave; it’s too comfortable here with no wind,” he added, alluding to the indoor training centre. Heading to Florida early will give the team a chance to train outside, something they are unable to do at home. The Fury started off strong against Syracuse dominating possession in the opening minutes. Syracuse goalkeeper Alex Bono was forced into making several big saves, including one diving effort on a powerful Nicki Paterson long-range effort that seemed destined

for the top corner. In the 17th minute, Syracuse broke the deadlock as Emil Ekblom finished a passing play in the box. The Fury resumed carrying the play after the goal, breaking through in the 36th minute as target man Tom Heinemann finished off a Philippe Davies cross with a strong header. Syracuse’s Ekblom added another tally just before halftime on a corner kick that saw the ball take multiple bounces in the Fury box. The corner kick that spawned the goal was caused by the Branchaud-Briere Complex, with numerous kicks hitting the low-hanging roof. “Their second goal comes from Casper the Friendly Ghost, a corner that only exists because the ball hit the ceiling,” Dos Santos said after the game with a laugh. “They’re given a corner and they score off it. It’s something you won’t see outside,” he said. When the second half resumed, the Fury continued to carry the play, with Nicki Paterson and Richie Ryan owning the middle of the field. The hour mark of the game brought substitutions from teams. After some continuous pressure, Canadian PierreRudolph Mayard headed in a Nicki Paterson cross to restore the draw. Dos Santos spoke about the difficulties of putting together a team that only recently finalized its roster. “You have a lot of different stages; guys coming to camp in different weeks and different stages of preparation,” said Dos Santos. Pre-season friendlies are great tests to help players near the mid-season fitness level and form heading into the season, he said. “We’re not looking at results, we’re looking at the im“That was way to easy!”

provement, and we were better today than against York or Rochester.” TALE OF TWO TEAMS

For Kenny Caceros, Saturday’s game against the Syracuse Orange came with a strange feeling. Earlier in the day he became the latest Ottawa Fury signing, as Dos Santos put his final touches on his roster heading into the new campaign. Born in Ottawa, he joins goalkeeper Chad Bush as the local products on the squad. Caceros is a product of the Ottawa Fury youth academy, joining in 2003. He earned a scholarship and attended Syracuse University, playing 58 games over four years during his Orange career. “To play against my old school is tough to describe, it’s almost weird,” said Caceros. “I spoke to the coaching staff. As soon as I walked in we chatted a bit. It was great and they really made me feel welcome.” A midfielder by trade, Caceros showed some versatility by playing as a defender in the game against Syracuse, coming on as a late sub. Dos Santos sees it as a natural fit for him. “Javier Mascherano in Barcelona is a midfielder yet he’s playing as centreback, Philip Lahm is a rightback yet he’s playing in the center of midfield,” said Dos Santos, of similar examples of versatility. “We want to maybe find another position for Kenny because of his characteristics, and we believe we’ll be able to do that well.” The Fury’s first home game will be played at Carleton University against Minnesota United FC on April 19 at 3 p.m. “I just clicked and saved 90%”

Did you WagJag and get in on the savings? “I can't believe I saved so much... ”

CITY OF OTTAWA CLASS ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT COMBINED SEWAGE STORAGE TUNNEL NOTICE OF FILING OF ADDENDUM In February 2013, the City of Ottawa completed a ‘Schedule C’ Class Environmental Assessment (EA) to develop a preferred solution and functional design for additional storage of combined sewage in the ultimate combined sewer area of Ottawa. In 2013, Combined Sewage Storage Tunnel (CSST) Environmental Study Report (ESR) was completed. The preferred design of the CSST consists of an east-west tunnel (EWT) through the downtown core from LeBreton Flats to New Edinburgh Park and a north-south tunnel (NST) along Kent Street from Catherine Street to the existing outfall north of Wellington Street. The 2013 ESR concluded that the preferred design for the NST would include a construction staging area in St. Laurent Square.

Fire at chemical recycling business on Old Innes Road Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

After consultation took place during preliminary design of the CSST in 2014, it was determined that the CSST could be extended south to Chamberlain Street for an alternative construction staging area for the NST. The resulting change in the preferred construction staging area requires additional property. An addendum is required to evaluate the potential environmental implications.

News - Ottawa firefighters had to put out a fire at ChemChamp, a chemical recycling business at 1230 Old Innes Rd. on March 27 They received the call at about 4:30 a.m., and it affected several other businesses in the complex, which had minor smoke damage. Damages to the ChemChamp unit were estimated at $100,000, and damage

Firefighters had a hard time locating the source of the fire because of heavy smoke, and had to call the hazardous material unit because of some of the chemical products stored there. All the containers were secure and there were no spills. The exact cause of the fire was undetermined, but it was deemed accidental, according to the Ottawa fire services department.

Celebrating Volunteers

Volunteers are an integral part of the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa’s (CASO) work, generously donating approximately 30,000 hours of their time each year. Volunteer tasks are varied and flexible, matching interests and skills with volunteer positions and working with people’s busy schedules. While some of CASO’s volunteer opportunities require a moderate time commitment, Special Assignments allow for more flexibility and can include: organizing, event management, providing entertainment, or acting as photographers at events. Volunteer Drivers support children and youth in care by providing a safe non-judgmental space where they can comfortably sit in silence or speak with an attentive listener. Child Access Volunteers similarly help to provide a safe space by supervising visits between parents and children. Pre-School Volunteers and Tutor/ Mentors provide more formalized guidance. Pre-School Volunteers assist professional staff, guiding children from three months to five years through a variety of weekly programs. Tutors/ Mentors, under the supervision of the case worker, help school-aged children with subjects like math, english and science, encouraging students to develop their interests and build educational goals. Volunteering with CASO is a learning opportunity for the volunteers themselves as they undergo training, work collaboratively with fellow volunteers and staff and develop relationships with foster parents and the families we serve. April 6-12, 2014 is National Volunteer Week, an opportunity for us to take stock of the time that volunteers across the country donate daily. We would like to take this opportunity to formally thank our volunteers for their tireless work. Their contribution to supporting children and youth in care, and the Ottawa community more broadly, makes a difference every day and every hour.

News- Local athletes from the 2014 Sochi Paralympics were honoured by CIBC at their South Keys banking centre on March 28. Bronze medallists from team Canada men’s sledge hockey team, Ben Delaney and Marc Dorion, were among the five athletes who attended the event. Continuous rounds of applause erupted from family and friends for the smiling paralympians. Alongside the medallists were Caroline Bisson and Margarita Gorbounova of the biathlon/para-nordic ski team and John Leslie of Arnprior from the para-snowboard team. Presenting the athletes with commemorative gold-plated medallions were CIBC district vice president Dean Chapman, and Karen O’Neill, chief executive officer of the Canadian Paralympic Committee. The large turnout nearly filled the banking centre. “It feels amazing, I didn’t expect this to be such a big turnout, and it’s definitely an incredible welcome home,” said Gorbounova. “I’m really thankful to CIBC for organizing this and to CPC of course.” She says being part of the Canadian Brandon Gillet/Metroland Paralympic athletes from the Ottawa area were honoured by CIBC on Friday, March 28. team is a great honour, “I’m really Five paralympians, including two members of Canada’s bronze medal winning sledge proud to have represented Canada in Sochi.” hockey team were in attendance. “It kind of makes you feel like it doesn’t really matter what happened when you were over there,” said Leslie. “When you come back, Canadians are proud of you and super stoked on how everything went.” CIBC announced in October its four-year sponsorship of the Canadian Paralympic Committee.

Designers unite for family with ill child Brandon Gillet brandon.gillet@metroland.com

News - William Greer is your average five-year-old: He enjoys video games and playing outside with his friends. Through his care-free, funloving exterior, one would never suspect he suffers from hydrocephalus caused by a tumour on his brain stem. Just over a year-and-a-half ago, Williamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parents Patrick and Lindsay Greer began to notice some changes in their son. He was experiencing vision loss, weak immunity to common bugs, and his teachers noted increased difficulty getting along with the routine at school. After some mixed opinions from various doctors, they were told it was nothing to worry about. The symptoms subsided setting Williamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parents temporarily at ease. Little did they know that the appearance of William getting better actually meant he was getting worse. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The gravity had not really set in at that point,â&#x20AC;? said Patrick. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was once the symptoms became severe that we became really concerned.â&#x20AC;? Hydrocephalus, sometimes referred to as â&#x20AC;&#x153;water on the brain,â&#x20AC;? is a condition which causes the buildup of spinal fluid in one or more of the brains ventricles, usually due to

in severe cases where complications arise, even death. Williamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s improvement was caused by the blockage in his fourth ventricle. The pressure became so high that a membrane had burst which caused the spinal fluid to naturally drain. When the symptoms returned, they were worse adding trouble walking, balancing, fatigue, and a new found fear of heights. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He has struggled with fatigue,â&#x20AC;? said Patrick. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From before the diagnosis and since he just hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t regained the stamina and cognition.â&#x20AC;? Treatments for Williamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s condition can come in the form of chemo and radiation therapy. Neurosurgery can also be an option, but unfortunately not in Williamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s case due to the proximity of the tumour to his brain stem. Life for the Greers could very well be a lifelong battle filled with MRIs, treatments and regular check-ups. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done imaging on a regular basis and unfortunately theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve shown that the tumour has continued to grow,â&#x20AC;? said Patrick, fighting back tears. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve recently been back to decide how we are going to continue. There are treatments that are going to be necessary to ensure we can at least stop the growth.â&#x20AC;? William has had two procedures done involving shunts being implanted. The first led to a difficult recovery as his body had adapted to the increased pressure. The second was a replacement with an approximate recovery time of 36 hours. He is scheduled to begin chemotherapy this week. Despite his young age, William has a good understanding of his condition. He knows how it works and when information is being held back. Despite this he remains in good spirits, the fun-loving boy they know. He wants to invent a new form of MRI someday, one which isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t so closed in as he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enjoy the isolation of

the machine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He still wants to play and be a kid,â&#x20AC;? said Lindsay. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He is very upbeat and his personality is the same.â&#x20AC;? Williamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ordeal is a lifelong condition involving many treatments and imaging every two months for at least the next three years according to his parents. They are thankful to CHEO for all the support. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve adapted and found new ways to make it more comfortable because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not pleasant, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something that we have to go through,â&#x20AC;? said Patrick. Cue the kindness of the human heart. Local designers Kelly James, Candace Plotz, and Sarah Kidder have teamed up as the WillPower Girls to provide the Greer family with a complete basement makeover. Together with Dan Smith of Strokes of Genius Painting, and Matt Irish of Right Angle Renovations, along with support through social media and renovation suppliers, the Greer family will have their basement finished and decorated to give them a comfortable space. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Originally we thought bedroom, but this way the whole family can enjoy it,â&#x20AC;? said Kidder. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Somewhere for them to spend quality time together.â&#x20AC;? According to Kidder, it started about a year ago when the WillPower Girls first talked about doing something for the Greerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s but couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t decide what. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were all having dinner as friends during Kindness Week which originally sparked the idea,â&#x20AC;? said Plotz. After revisiting the idea this year, the girls put the project in full swing. They approached Smith, who works regularly with Kidder, to do the painting and construction. He quickly agreed to do the work at no charge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When she contacted us to see if we wanted to be involved we said of course,â&#x20AC;? said Smith. While some items are being donated, others will need to be paid for. To help with this, the team has set up a fundraiser through ucaring.com which has already received donations exceeding $4,000 in slightly more than three weeks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That will cover materials which are hard to get donated like drywall and studs,â&#x20AC;? said Smith. Along with the online findraiser, there has been no shortage of support on social media on their Facebook page, facebook.com/thewillpowerproject and their blog, willpowergirls.blogspot.ca, as well as countless friends raising money to help out. They can also be found on Twitter, @ willpowergirls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even if people arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t donating theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re spreading the word and sharing on Facebook,â&#x20AC;? said James. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So anything people are doing to help is awesome.â&#x20AC;? Though the design is not quite complete the team has a fairly good idea how it will go and are aiming for a completion date nearing the end of May. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give too much away because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supposed to be a surprise,â&#x20AC;? said James. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty cool.â&#x20AC;?

An investment of a lifetime (NC) - Owning your own home is an exciting proposition and an achievable goal for most Canadians. The number one reason many become homeowners is pride of homeownership and the stability and security that comes with it. Buying a home can also be a solid investment and provide tax benefits. GAINS

In Canada, you are not taxed on any investment gains made on the sale of your primary residence. So, for example, if you buy your home for $200,000 and sell it 5 years later for $250,000, you do not have to pay income tax on the $50,000 you earned from the sale.

Another advantage is each time you make a mortgage payment, you are putting a portion towards the principal balance of your mortgage, which builds equity in your home. This is a better use of your money than giving rent to a landlord and is a good long-term investment. Owning a home also means that you can make your own decisions on decorating, home improvements, location, etc. In a recent survey conducted by Genworth Canada, 91 per cent of first-time homebuyers said that homeownership may mean more work but the effort is well worth it. When it makes financial sense, buying a home is often a wise, secure and emotionally satisfying move to make.

Algonquin College president Kent MacDonald announced the launch of the etextbook plan on March 24, after months of testing and feedback from student and faculty. By September 2014, the program will deliver about 40,000 e-resources to more than 9,000 full time students. It will then expand further to include all students by 2015. “We have worked for many years to become a digital college through the creation of mobile learning programs and spaces,” said MacDonald. “By offering robust mobile support and wireless Internet everywhere on campus, and in our expansion of our online and hybrid offerings, e-textbooks are the next phase.” The college tested two ways of delivering e-texts: online through a web browser and from the new Vital-

Source platform. As the browser option allows only online viewing, students opted for VitalSource. The interactive program allows students to manipulate text, highlight sections, transfer notes and annotated text to Word, and colour-coding to help indicate test material or areas for personal improvement. The system means students can access their textbooks from any mobile device both on and offline. Some texts like workbooks and manuals proved ineffective in electronic format but these will be available in print and will be covered by the etext ancillary fee which is part of full-time programs. “It’s all about choice,” said Glenn MacDougall, the college’s director of learning and teaching services. “Our goal is to ensure that every student has access to the required course resources. E-textbooks represent a major step forward in support for our students.” The electronic textbook program started in January 2013 with a pilot phase which provided 2,300 text books to about 700 students in six pro-

grams. Textbook publishers Wiley, Pearson, McGrawHill, and Nelson provided the e-texts for free in exchange for feedback on the usability of the digital books. The goal for September 2014 will be to provide students the required e-textbooks at 50 per cent of the cost of print. These fees will be factored into an ancillary fee on students’ tuition costs.

She’s the One, and she’ll launch her career at the RBC Bluesfest Arts - RBC Bluesfest organizers have announced a call for submissions for their 20th-anniversary edition of the She’s the One emerging female artist competition. The competition is a crossCanada talent search for the best in emerging Canadian female music talent. With the help of Corus Entertainment, Bluesfest is looking for promising young female Canadian singers. As part of this year’s special 20th-anniversary edition, organizers are zeroing in on the best emerging teenage female singers in Canada. “We are looking for one special young artist with an incredible voice backed up by a moving live performance,” says She’s the One co-ordina-

tor Ana Miura. “We already know that there’s an incredible amount of undiscovered female vocal talent in Canada,” says Bluesfest’s executive and artistic director, Mark Monahan. “This year’s She’s the One competition will not only prove it, it will go a long way to providing impetus for the career of a deserving young Canadian singer.” RBC Bluesfest is providing the She’s the One winner with a whirlwind, career-building trip to Los Angeles to work with top music producer Barrett Yeretsian (Jar of Hearts, Christina Perri). They’ll record a song at the legendary Sunset Sound Recording Studio and take part in a star makeover photo

shoot and music tutorial prior to filming a Hollywood-style music video, courtesy of Popmania! In addition to the opportunity of a lifetime, the winner will walk away with a guitar from Daisy Rock Girl Guitars. The competition is open to female singers who are Canadian residents between the ages of 13 and 19. The deadline to apply is April 30. Submissions will be received online only. Visit www. ottawabluesfest.ca/shes-theone for details. Once submissions close, the top artists will be chosen and contacted to perform for the finals, which will occur at the RBC Bluesfest in Ottawa on Saturday July 5.

Aries, you may need to come up with some new ways to show your affection, as your old ways are starting to fall short. Look to Leo for inspiration. Taurus, a few kinks still need to be worked out, but your master plan will soon be in place. Start putting the wheels in motion and your work won’t go unrecognized. Gemini, you are great at creating a good time out of nothing at all. Get together with a few friends and let the good times roll. Others may envy this talent. You have a rare opportunity to show off your skills this week, Cancer. When your talents are on display, don’t worry about hogging that spotlight. Enjoy your time in the limelight. Take some time for quiet inspiration, Leo. It is just what you need after a busy week in which your stamina was put to the test. Rest and recharge for a few days. Tasks at work have certainly tried your patience, Virgo. Just when you are settled in, you get pulled in another direction very quickly. Save up those vacation days.

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!

It’s time to lighten up, Libra. Throw a party, take a trip or hang out with friends. Just be sure to focus on fun and let other concerns fall by the wayside for a little while. Scorpio, do your best to get all of your ducks in a row this week. Keep distractions at bay and don’t allow social engagements to take precedence over more pressing matters. Sagittarius, you will have to remain two steps ahead of everyone else to get a project done this week. Things are moving quite quickly now, so make every minute count. A challenge is on the horizon, Capricorn. But remain calm and you will handle every challenge that comes your way. Aries provides some extra help. Aquarius, some may call you stubborn, but “dedicated” might be a more appropriate term. Once your mind is set, it is hard to pull you off course, and this week is no different. You have plenty of energy to carry you through to the weekend, Pisces. A big surprise is in store in the coming days.
