EMC news - While the Navan Fair’s admission cost has gone up from the 35 cents adults were charged in 1945 during the first fair, attendees won’t be disappointed with the bang for their buck between Aug. 9 and 12. With David Wilcox playing Friday night, Kim Mitchell performing Saturday night and Dallas Smith playing Sunday, a $10 to $15 ticket to the 67th Navan Fair “is the best deal in entertainment” said Tracey Bissonnette, the fair’s advertising director. One thing they didn’t have in 1945 however – or even last year – is the new, ladies-only minivan category in the demolition derby. “It’s revenge of the soccerslash-hockey mom, it’s going to be kind of interesting,” Bissonnette said. The demolition derby is a two-night event, beginning on Aug. 9 with smaller motors and finishing on Aug. 10. Along with the derby will be tradition games, horse shows, an alpaca show, agricultural displays and bed races. “Five people, one rider and four runners,” Bissonnette said of the bed races. “They dress up and run down the main street in Navan, so that’s always a hoot to watch.” Also on display during the event will be this year’s theme, “From Farm Gate to Dinner Plate,” through costumes, photos and exhibits. Bissonnette said the theme helps organizers maintain the rural heritage and roots of the fair. There is a lot for the kids too, with the new free kids zone tent. It will have Little Ray’s Reptiles, face painting, Crash the Clown and science experiments. See KIDS on page 3

Hidden Harvest Ottawa founders Jay Garlough, left, and Katrina Siks would like to harvest fruit-bearing trees in the city this fall. The two, who came up with the idea last season, said they want to ensure fruit grown in the city doesn’t go to waste.

Share: from fruit to nuts New organization aims to harvest urban edibles Michelle Nash

michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - A new food-sharing organization is looking to teach Ottawa residents to realize the potential of the city’s many fruit-bearing trees. Hidden Harvest Ottawa is an organization dedicated to connecting the owners of fruit-bearing trees with volunteer harvesters to ensure no fruit or nuts are wasted this harvest season. The incentive is the harvested bounty will be divided up to the tree owners, the volunteers and to community food pro-

grams such as the Ottawa Food Bank. The idea is not a new one, co-founder Katrina Siks explained. Other cities in Canada having similar organizations and Siks felt it was time for Ottawa to get on board. “There are so many levels to why this is so important to me,” Siks said. “I have had the opportunity to work with youth in this city and introduce them to a patch of raspberries – you get to watch them connect the fruit they have eaten plenty of times with being able to reach out and pick it.” The plan to bring this idea to Ottawa, came about while Siks was working with Hidden Harvest co-founder Jay Garlough while making cider last year. “We were harvesting rogue apples, making cider out of them and the idea kind of spontaneously came up because we had way more produce then we needed,” Siks said. They began talking to people all around the city who work with food, from Just

Food to the Ottawa Food Bank to produce farmers, to find out how such an organization would work best in the city. “We learned from them and began considering the Ottawa environment, and how this project will work and how we could make it sustainable,” Siks said. The aim was to make the organization is not only viable, she said, but to ensure fruit in the city is harvested, shared and preserved. There are two branches of the organization: one which handles the harvesting, picking and sharing of the produce of the fruit and nut trees, while the other will be promoting more edible tree growth in the city by selling fruit-bearing trees and bushes. The result is this September Hidden Harvest Ottawa volunteers will begin picking fruit from more than 20,000 identified fruit trees across the city. See HARVEST on page 2

Harvest will begin this September Continued from front

The city’s parks and facilities bylaw does not permit anyone to disturb or remove any city property, including trees, shrubs, bushes, flowers, plants or grasses. Siks said she has been working with the city to obtain the appropriate permits to remove the fruit and nuts. “I think it makes sense that food on public land does its part in feeding the public,” Siks said. “But this is something that is new, for us and for our city and we are just being cautious and ensuring the safety of the harvesting process and to be fair for all parties involved. Of course, unofficially, harvesting off city trees has been happening for decades or

even hundreds of years, but we just wanted to be safe.” As part of the process, Hidden Harvest will take the fruit that is in the worst shape so it might be used in another manner. “It might be for juicing, jamming, it might be donated, canning, all sorts of things, but mostly it is to ensure that all the fruit, even the lower quality food get used as well,” Siks said. The organization will launch its harvest on Sept. 15. A website will have a database for volunteers to find information on where fruit trees are in the city and interested volunteer harvesters can sign up to participate. In the meantime, Siks said, the

organization is looking for interested people to volunteer. “Right now we have two groups mobilized, but we can definitely use more volunteers to help get harvesting materials; pole pickers, burlap sacks, to make harvesting bags,” she said. “Or if people are interested in helping us in creating and recreate harvesting equipment, we would welcome them.” The group is also looking for research help. “We want to make sure we are brushed up on our harvesting techniques, and what can be done with the types of fruit we pick so we can inform ourselves and the food banks and community centres we provide fruit to,” Siks said.

A training session will be organized in August for lead harvesters. For more information, visit hiddenharvestottawa.ca or send an email to info@ hiddenharvest. ca.

Colonel By grad wins international math medal Brier Dodge

brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC news - James Rickards, a Colonel By Secondary School graduate, has started his summer off well – he returned from the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO), in Argentina with a silver medal. The competition pits 550 of the top high school math students in the world against each other, with half getting medals in the gold, silver or bronze levels. This is the second medal for Rickards, who competed last year in the IMO in the Netherlands. But it was the top finish ever for Canada at the competition this year, with a fifth place team finish. “We had the right blend of people,” Rickards said. “It was by far out best result. Last year we all had medals, but we didn’t do as well.” Prior to the competition, Canada’s six competitors went to Banff, Alta. to prepare with practice questions. “That’s really the best way to prepare, just more (math) problems,” Rickards said. At the competition, which featured opening ceremonies on the first day, competitors are put into a large room and

given three problems to solve in four and a half hours. Answers are scored, and totaled from both days of competition out of 42 to determine who falls in the gold, silver and bronze medal range. And for Rickards, another silver medal means he’s one of the top high school math students in the entire world. The recent international baccalaureate program graduate travelled from Greely to Colonel By, about a 45 minute trip, each day for high school – on top of the university level mathematics work he did. He finished Ontario’s high school math curriculum by the end of elementary school and published an original math paper on polynomials in American Mathematical Monthly in 2011. And in the fall, the 17-yearold will leave for Cambridge University in England to study math at Trinity College on a $150,000 Blyth Cambridge Commonwealth Trust Scholarship. He’ll be only one of 40 studying math at Trinity College all together. At Cambridge, he’ll be joined by the United Kingdom team from the International Mathematical Olympiad, as well as other international competitors. Meeting future classmates, and competitors from all over was a highlight of the competition for Rickards, with over 100 countries in attendance. “Besidesa the competition, you meet a lot of people from all over the world,” he said.

A completed installation by Karen Goetzinger.

Textile installations take over Trinity Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC arts - Karen Goetzinger’s first installation show has set up inside the Trinity Art Gallery at the Shenkman Arts Centre. Using a variety of materials, including Italian pima cotton organdy, silk organza, acrylic paints and fond metal, the show A State of Transparency represents memories. “Memories begin to fade and almost become transparent themselves,” Goetzinger said. “We lose all the details even though we try and grasp and hold onto those details.” She started with the loose, semi-opaque fabric to represent transparency in government, but as the hours of stitching and creating passed, the focus started to change. “As I’m stitching and layering, often other meanings become clear to me,” she said. “So now it’s really about places that have left an imprint on our memories.” The Old Ottawa East resident studied fash-

ion design in university, so working with fibres came naturally to her. Her usual work uses acrylic paint and thread on canvas that is hung on the wall. She’s taught at the Ottawa School of Art since 2004, becoming well known for her mixed media textile creations. This particular installation started with an idea two years ago, and has already been shown in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Working on an installation instead of a wallmounted piece of work has allowed her to use light throughout the piece. She was able to add integrated lighting to the show at Shenkman through an ARTicipate Endowment Fund grant. “My current work has changed a bit,” she said. “My work has just moved along and progressed.” A State of Transparency runs until Aug. 21 in the Trinity Art Gallery at the Shenkman Arts Centre.

Fire Hydrants: Testing for your Safety This summer, as in past years, the City of Ottawa will be testing municipal fire hydrants on various streets throughout your community. Fire hydrant testing may result in temporary inconveniences, such as poor water pressure and brown or rust-coloured water. It is important to note that temporarily discoloured City water is not harmful to your health. This ongoing maintenance procedure ensures that our hydrants are ready, should Fire Services require their use.

High house prices don’t mean a tax hike: city Average homes cost 24 per cent more than 2008

InďŹ ll properties are in demand, the report reads, and “Ottawa’s greenbelt, increased congestion and commuting times to suburban communities including Orleans, and the amenities that come with being the nation’s capital, have all combined to keep sale prices increasing in the city.â€?

Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

TAX IMPACT

The city is preparing a communications strategy for the fall to get the word out that such a large increase in value doesn’t necessarily lead to a corresponding increase in property taxes. That’s when MPAC will be mailing notices to tell property owners their new assessments. “This does not mean that property owners in Ottawa will experience a 24-per-cent increase in municipal property tax,� deputy city treasurer Ken Hughes wrote to members of city council on July

due to an assessment increase wouldn’t be felt until 2016. If you have an assessment decrease, however, your taxes would go down immediately in 2013, with no phase-in period. MPAC analyzes actual sale

EMC news - Ottawa residents shouldn’t go into a panic that their taxes are going to go up, even though house prices are on the rise in Ottawa. That was the message from the city’s deputy treasurer following news that Ottawa has seen a 24 per cent increase in assessed home value over the last four years, according to the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation. That’s about the same annual increase the city has seen since 1980, according to MPAC. But “boutique� neighbourhoods like the Glebe, Westboro and other areas close to downtown are seeing increases above the 24 per

Calculating how a change in a property’s assessed value will affect how much property tax the homeowner pays is a complex calculation, but the main consideration is how an individual property’s assessed value increase relates to the 24 per cent city average. For instance, a property evaluated by MPAC as having increased in value by 24 per cent over the past four years would see a municipal property tax increase equal to any increase in the city budget approved by council. Accordingly, an assessment increase over 24 per cent means your taxes would go up by more than the percentage budget increase set by city council. And if your assessment increase is below 24

Beer, wine don’t belong on every corner

A

re they drunk? The Ontario Convenience Stores Association is pressing the province to allow corner stores to sell beer and wine. At first blush the idea seems attractive, offering the convenience of more locations to pick up our libations. Some convenience stores in rural locations are already licensed to sell beer and wine. And of course corner store owners love the idea. The ability to sell alcoholic

beverages can only serve to drive more traffic to these small businesses; customers who will potentially buy other items. But while this argument may offer a lot of dollars (for corner store owners), it is lacking in sense. There’s a reason why the sale of wine and beer is restricted to limited locations. Easier access to beer and wine translates into easier access for those who are underage. Loosening the restriction on where beer and wine may

be sold will provide more opportunities for youth to obtain alcoholic drinks. If Ontario follows the example of Quebec and puts beer and wine in convenience stores, teens will have a wide variety of outlets to choose from, where they can hang around outside and pester adults for a litre of wine or a six-pack of beer. The consumption of alcohol causes more problems than other drugs used recreationally, so why would we want to make it easier for our

children to obtain it? According to a 2010 report by Britain’s Independent Scientific Committee on Drugs, alcohol is a more dangerous drug than both crack cocaine and heroin when the combined harms to the user and to others are assessed. According to MADD, following the privatization of alcohol sales in Alberta, Calgary police reported a rise in impaired driving charges and family violence in areas of the city with the highest concentration of liquor stores.

Don’t be swayed by the argument that ease of access will translate into lower prices. There’s no guarantee that prices will lower or even that the selection available will be as good as at the Beer Store or LCBO. Without that guarantee this is an idea not even worth discussing. Keep in mind that the average corner store won’t have the shelf space to provide a wide selection. Customers may be stuck with a few major brands of beer, two white wines and two reds. Even though purchases would be more convenient for some people, a reduced selection

and no price advantage is no improvement on today. The price of alcoholic beverages sold at corner stores may even go up compared to those sold at LCBO stores. Who sells a bottle of Pepsi for less – a large grocery store or a small corner store? If they catch the premier during a tipsy moment and this idea flies, what happens if it turns out to have been a big mistake? It may prove difficult to take away licences to sell booze if they are handed out. Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty has already rejected the idea. We should all raise a glass and offer him a toast.

Week 41, still waiting for baby BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse

I

’m 41 weeks pregnant and I’ve decided pregnancy is now my permanent state of being. For those of you who don’t know, 41 weeks means I am exactly one week past my due date. It also means that, for the past four weeks, I’ve been on tenterhooks: anticipating baby’s arrival at any moment, thinking every cramp from a bad strawberry is a contraction, altering my labour plan daily to make sure we had a neighbour on-call to look after our older children, unsure how far to drive or to travel as a passenger. Every morning I wake up with leg and back cramps. Until I stretch for five minutes, I’m pretty sure it’s “time.” Every morning I’ve been wrong. Every evening, I make sure camp lunches are diligently made, the bathroom is relatively tidy, and all the laundry folded or hidden in a cupboard. I’ve decided what people call “nesting,” is actually unsustainably impeccable housekeeping driven by the fear that strangers may come to the house at any moment. The first weeks around my due date, my husband was pretty patient. “No rush,” he said. He was on VBPL (vacation before parental leave) and using the time to complete a few things on his long list of home renovations. On a hot July weekend just before my due date, we decided it really wasn’t the best weekend to have a baby, as everyone we knew seemed to be out of town, including my midwife. “Let’s wait until Tuesday,” we decided, and we went to the beach. Tuesday came and went. Another weekend loomed. “Let’s wait until after the weekend,”

we said. “No rush.” We watched movies, did some gardening, made pies and did other activities that one can only do with a family of four. Before we knew it, Monday arrived. “Monday’s not a good day to have a baby,” I said. “We’re always rushed on Mondays. Besides, we have relatives in town for supper tomorrow. Let’s wait until Wednesday.” And then it was Wednesday. And I was officially a week overdue. And here I am. Everyone, except my husband and children, consider me to be “quite cheerful” under the circumstances. They all ask me how I’m feeling and pat my belly as if it’s public property. They tell me I look great, and I’m “all baby,” that “there’s no fat on me” (they haven’t seen my thighs), and ask me how long I can go before the baby makes its arrival. And everybody generously shares details about their labour and birth horror stories – to make me feel better about the whole dreaded process, I suppose. Although people are very kind, and I’m sure they mean well, their condescension makes me feel, frankly, like a bit of a freak. But really, it’s not too hard to make a 9.25months’ pregnant woman feel a little weird: I’m already carrying an extra 32 pounds; in the last couple of weeks, waddling has become a more natural way to put one foot in front of the other; and boy, you should see me in a bathing suit! I’ve maintained my public game face – “all I want is a healthy baby whenever it’s ready to arrive” – but admittedly, I’m ready to reclaim my uterus. I wasn’t sure how to start the conversation with baby to let it know it’s time for it to make a move. Then out of the blue, a friend posted something unusually supportive on my Facebook wall. “Your timing is perfect and elegant,” she wrote, quoting Regena Thomashauer, owner of Mama Gena’s School of Womanly Arts. I read it aloud to baby. Let’s see what today brings. Charles Gordon’s column will return.

Join the search for swifts EMC news - As their name suggests, chimney swifts make their homes in chimneys in urban neighbourhoods throughout Ontario. Chimney swifts are experiencing steep declines across their North American range. Bird Studies Canada and its partners are looking for volunteers to help search for nesting locations. The chimney swift is a small, sooty-coloured bird that can be observed in most urban areas, flying overhead in quick, jerky movements, making a high-pitched chittering call. Unfortunately, this bird is federally and provincially designated as a threatened species. Chimney swift numbers have declined by over 90 per cent over the last four decades. The Ottawa Stewardship Council, the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority and Bird Studies Canada have partnered to learn more about the declines and their causes in Ottawa. The group is looking for help pinpointing chimney swift nesting locations in the City’s urban core, and its rural villages and hamlets. Over the next few weeks, keep an eye on the sky, and on chimneys. If you happen to see or hear swifts, especially near sundown, look for an open chimney (no cap) in

EMC sports - It’s not like beer is the most important thing in the world to me – I really do love my wife and kids more – but it was still nice to see Canadian being served at Canada House in London Thursday, July 26.

It’s people like them, after all, who are inspiring to the current crop of Olympians – or at least they should be considering both are Winter Olympic champions. And it sure was interesting to hear Bilodeau refer to Whitby’s Kelita Zupancic during his brief speech. It was her smile leading up to her flight that caught his eye, a smile that for him lit up a country during the 2010 Games in Vancouver when he captured gold in the men’s moguls. A training partner of Zupanic’s in Montreal, where

she now lives and trains with the national judo team, Bilodeau loves to see the athletes keeping it fun in the midst of all the blood, sweat and tears. “When you enjoy it and have a smile, that’s the best place to perform, the best place to be in your mind,” he said. “It’s hard to do. I think it’s important to like what we do still. Even though it’s the Games, just enjoy it.” Zupancic has been singularly focused on the task for countless years, dating back to when she was nine and saw her now-coach Nicolas Gill win a silver medal at the 2000 Games in Sydney, Australia. But, as obvious as that killer look is in her eyes, it’s nice also to see the glint.

EMC sports - There are few things more Canadian than hockey and moose, and both can be easily spotted outside Team Canada’s residence within the Olympic Village. A big red moose statue stands proudly – and permanently throughout the 2012 Olympics – just outside the doorway of Canada’s 11-floor building that is decorated with flags and huge C-A-N-A-D-A letters running down the middle-floor balconies. Off to the side are a couple of hockey nets, which were being put to good use during a media tour of the village on Thursday, July 26. Among the players was Thomas Gossland, a Vancouver swimmer who doesn’t normally play the game, but was having a blast nonetheless as he gears up for his 4x100metre freestyle relay race on Sunday. “I don’t know who brought them, but I just saw the nets and a few hours later there were sticks out,” Gossland said during a brief break in the action. “It’s awesome,” he said when asked his impression of the village so far, two days into his visit. “It was really overwhelming to come here. I’ve never been to a Games environment before, but everything in Canada House from what I can see is set up great, and the dining hall is huge. It’s pretty overwhelming. I’ve already been to the aquatic centre and it’s gi-normous. It’s pretty exciting too.” The village as a whole is a remarkable feat of planning and engineering, the culmination of a process that began shortly after London learned of its successful bid some seven years ago.

Corner store booze might not be worth it: store owner Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Independent convenience stores might not be able to afford changes need to sell wine and beer, says one Ottawa store owner, even if the government agreed with a petition from a convenience store lobbying group. On July 25, the Ontario Convenience Stores Association took a petition with 112,500 names collected from 220 Ontario communities to the provincial government.

The practice of limiting alcohol sales to LCBO stores and a select number of producer-retailers like Wine Rack and the Beer Store is “archaic,” the OCSA said. The issue has long been debated in Ontario, but despite some apparently strong support for the petition, at least one Ottawa convenience store owner was hesitant. Ayoub’s Mini Mart has been a family business in Sandy Hill for around 30 years, but just reopened on July 1 after three years of rebuilding after a ma-

jor fire. Being able to sell wine and beer might help attract people back to the store, said owner Nouha Chahine. convenience

“Liquor is too much, whiskey and all that. Just the beer and wine that people use every day,” Chahine said. “Of course, it would be good and convenient for everybody.” But she doesn’t think it will happen. The government won’t agree to the change anyways, Chahine said. Even if

it was permitted, it would be a heavy responsibility and an additional cost to change the configuration of the store. Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak said he is open to the debate, but a spokesperson for Premier Dalton McGuinty said there is no need for change. “This government believes that Ontarians are well served by the current retail system for beverage alcohol,” said Aly Vitunski, spokeswoman for Finance Minister Dwight Duncan. Insurance would really be the nail in the coffin, Chahine said. Ayoub’s stopped selling cigarettes several years ago after a series of thefts. Insurance rates kept going up and she decided it wasn’t worth the hassle or cost to sell tobacco. While she might give wine and beer sales a try if it was permitted, Chahine said she could see the same situation arising.

Still, it might prop up sales for the independent store, Chahine said. “We’ve been struggling just to make a living,” she said. Mac’s Convenience Stores, one of the largest brands in Ottawa with 40 outlets in the urban area alone, is strongly in favour of beer and wine sales in its stores. chain support

“Absolutely, yes we would support this,” said Bruce Watson, director of customer relations and government compliance for Mac’s. “The majority of Ontario residents would like to see this type of access.” Potential challenges related to retrofitting stores, the increased risk of theft and insurance rates to match are not so much of a concern for Mac’s, Watson said. “I don’t see challenges as much as opportunities,” he said.

If the government allowed it, individual Mac’s store operators could decide if it would be worth it for them to carry wine and beer. Eventually adding spirits is a debate Mac’s would be open to in the future, Watson added. An Ottawa resident himself, Watson said he can cross over to Quebec and see alcohol being sold in convenience stores there, including Couche-Tard outlets, the parent company of Mac’s. Alcohol is seen as a strong product in the Quebec stores, Watson said. But the stores don’t necessarily make a lot of money of the booze itself, he said. It’s more about getting people into the stores more frequently, which encourages them to buy additional products with higher profit margins, like a bag of chips to go with their beer.

Ride the Rideau, Eastern Ontario’s most successful cancer fundraiser As a medical oncologist at The Ottawa Hospital, Dr. Neil Reaume has treated hundreds of cancer patients – and all of them have a story to tell.

Crunch time

Cumberland Panthers defensive lineman Grant Kauth-Gregory, in blue, knocks the ball out of the hands of a Toronto Thunder opponent during a July 21 junior varsity game at Millennium Field in Orleans.

“Every patient is different in their own way, and everyone has a story that’s touching,” said Reaume, who is also the director of the Hospital’s medical oncology training program. But one story he heard during the inaugural Ride the Rideau event in 2010 – The Ottawa Hospital Foundation’s signature fundraising event in support of cancer research at the Hospital – was particularly unforgettable.

The 42-year-old Reaume enjoyed the event so much that he returned to Ride the Rideau last year, the event’s second, but this time as one of the 715 riders. Over two years, the event has raised a total of $2.7 million. While cancer touches most people’s lives, Reaume is especially grateful for the incredible success of the event. Ride the Rideau funds the work that he is involved in as a researcher, which includes interna-

tional lung and kidney cancer studies, as well as other clinical trials. There are over 70 trials currently taking place at the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute, with thousands of patients taking part annually. Reaume is thrilled that there are so many people out there who are just as passionate about the fight against cancer as he is. Their enthusiasm, he said, is so inspiring that he has registered for the third annual event on Saturday, September 8.

While volunteering, he met a young woman from Montreal who was riding her dad’s bike – he had died one year to the day of the ride from colon cancer. She had found out about Ride the Rideau the week before, and raised $3,000 in just seven days. “My jaw just dropped,” Reaume said. “I won’t forget that one.”

F

ather was not going to be bitten twice. No-sir-eee. It sounded like a good idea the year before when he saw the ad in a farm magazine. It was guaranteeing an easy way to kill potato bugs and he sent off $2 for the latest invention which was going to put an end to one of the most hated jobs on the farm. What arrived were two pieces of small flat board about 10 centimetres square and instructions to put the potato bug on one piece and slam it dead with the other. Of course, you had to pick off the bug first. Father knew he had been had, as he chucked the two pieces of wood into the Findlay Oval and watched his two dollars go up in smoke. He wasn’t going to fall for something like that again - he may have only had a junior fourth-level education, but knew a crooked deal when he saw one. Now, Father loved farming. He loved his land and he loved his livestock, but what he couldn’t abide was picking off potato bugs. Yet it was a job that had to be done if we were ever to realize a good crop of potatoes for winter. So this time of year, when the plants were high, filled with blossoms and in a few weeks ready to be dug up for the new potatoes, we could also see hundreds of miserable little bugs eating to their hearts content on what would

When you set up E-Billing, another convenient choice is to register for the Auto-Pay option. You will never have to remember to make another payment again.

surely be the end of our crop and a disaster if left alone. We called it ‘potato bug day’ and Emerson said you looked forward to it as much as you looked forward to a trip into Renfrew to get a tooth pulled. We hated the job with a passion and with Father lamenting about it, didn’t make it any easier.  The entire family got into the job, we five children, Mother and Father. We were told the night before, just before we went to bed and it was enough to keep you tossing and turning most of the night. Of course, my brother Emerson didn’t make the job any easier for me when he told me one of the Kallies boys got rabies from potato bugs. My sister Audrey said to pay him no heed - it was impossible to get rabies from a potato bug. This greatly put my mind at ease. Audrey, 11 years older than I was, was very clever. At breakfast, Father sat like a black cloud at the head of the table. Mother said we would leave cleaning up the kitchen so that we could get out to the potato field before the hot sun was at its cruelest.

We followed Father to the drive shed where seven little tin cans were lined up on a plank like soldiers. Father took the old battered coal-oil can and filled each tin half full with coal-oil and we headed out, down the

Father expected them fried for breakfast, creamed for lunch at noon and if there were any left over, fried with bacon fat and onions for supper. hill behind the barn and the silo, each of us with our own ammunition to get rid of the despised potato bugs. The potato patch was about twice the size of our garden. We were big potato eaters. Father expected them fried for breakfast, creamed for lunch at noon and if there were any left over, fried with bacon fat and onions for supper. We could end up with many bags in the cellar if we were lucky. And of course, there wasn’t a smidgen wasted either. The peels were fed to the pigs and it wasn’t unusual for Mother to barter in Renfrew for supplies either. A bag of potatoes could mean more than two kilograms of sugar, a bag of green tea and even a few yards of print from Briscoe’s General Store. So it was important that we save the crop from the potato bugs. It was no easy job picking off the bugs. There were no gloves to protect your fingers. The only time I ever saw a pair of rubber gloves was

when old Dr. Murphy took out my tonsils. No, you took a hold of the potato bug between your thumb and finger and pulled it off the leaf, and popped it into the tin of coal oil. We went up and down the rows of potatoes, covered from head to toe to keep off the mosquitoes and the flies, with sweat pouring down our backs. We wore straw hats and gum rubbers. If we were lucky and worked quickly we could finish the whole patch in the better part of a day. We didn’t even stop for lunch, so anxious were we to finish the job and you wouldn’t dare speak to Father unless it was something very important. He hated the job so much, he was in vile humour most of the day, which was very unusual for Father. When we finished the entire patch, we went into the summer kitchen and stripped down to our underwear and Mother would have lined up seven wash basins, using the pot she used for bleaching the tea towels. With hot water from the reservoir, we scrubbed our hands until they were red and washed any other part of our body we could get at without being completely naked. It took the better part of the evening before Father got rid of the scowl on his face and not before he could be heard muttering to himself in German, which Audrey said were swear words, which he wouldn’t dare say in English in front of Mother. If we were lucky, the potato bugs were finished for the year. I often wondered if they died a slow and agonizing death in the coal oil. As I was going through a very religious spell in my young life at the time, I said a silent prayer that there was a potato bug heaven where they would find lots of potato plants to eat and where they could escape their coal oil deaths. I knew in my heart, Father would feel very differently about them, and if he prayed, it would be that we had seen the last of them for another year.

Try this tempting trio School supplies needed of summer recipes Michelle Nash

michelle.nash@metroland.com

T

his week I’m passing along three recipes that are all worth trying. The first is for a low-calorie creamy topping that you can use instead of whipping cream on fresh fruit, crepes or cake. Made with cottage cheese and flavoured with wine, this can be sweetened with either sugar or a sugar substitute. With raspberries in season, I serve this topping over crepes filled with fresh berries. When we run out of crepes, I spread it on thick slices of toasted homemade bread then top that with raspberries. You might want to try the same idea with fresh peaches for a Sunday brunch treat. Use a blender if you have one to make this rather than an electric mixer. The blades of the blender break up the lumps of cottage cheese so that the topping ends up almost as smooth as whipped cream. The second recipe is for a quick, tasty salad dressing that goes well on any green salad. Made with tomato juice and flavoured with tarragon, this has a slightly sweet flavour. It can also be made with a sugar substitute if you wish. If you

PAT TREW Food ‘n’ Stuff don’t have any tarragon, you can substitute basil. The last recipe is for a marinade that you can use with fresh salmon, pork chops or chicken. After marinating, they can be barbecued or baked in the oven. This recipe calls for fresh ginger, but powdered ginger can also be used. The soy sauce gives additional flavour as well as colour. Creamy Fruit Topping

• 1 cup cottage cheese • 1/4 cup white wine • 2 to 4 tbsp. milk • 1 tbsp. or more of white sugar Tomato Tarragon Salad Dressing

• 1/2 cup tomato juice • 2 tbsp. lemon juice • 1/2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce • 3 tbsp. vegetable oil • 1/4 tsp. dry mustard

• 1 tbsp. white sugar • 1 tsp. tarragon or basil Combine all the ingredients in a small jar, close the lid tightly, then shake. Refrigerate for a couple of hours to let the flavours blend. Shake again just before using. Ginger Soy Marinade

• 1 clove garlic, finely chopped • 1 tsp. grated fresh ginger • 1 tbsp. vegetable oil • 1 tbsp. soy sauce • 3 tbsp. sherry • 2 sliced green onions Combine all the ingredients. To use, arrange the fish or meat in a single layer in a shallow glass or ceramic dish. Pour the marinade over, turning each piece to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for about two hours. Drain and discard the marinade before cooking the meat.

EMC news - With back to school only about a month away, the Eastern Ottawa Resource Centre is already looking for donations for its annual campaign to outfit students from lowincome for the new year of classes. The centre handed out 450 backpacks full of school supplies last year. The back to school program helps elementary and high school youth from low-income families, but the program receives no funding and relies completely on donations. Gayle Downing, volunteer co-ordinator at the centre, said the community has been very generous in the past. “We need their help again as we experience more and more families in need,” Downing said. “In past years the community has stepped up and enabled us to carry this program as we continually get more requests. We need the community’s help again.” demand increasing

The program began nine years ago and Downing said since then, more people come needing supplies every year. The centre accepts all sorts of donations, from cash to school supplies. “Since we do not have any funding whatsoever we really rely on the community for donations,” Downing said. “Without donations we cannot do this at all.” When the centre receives cash, Downing said they purchase supplies at a lower cost, allowing them to stretch every dollar. “We do need backpacks as well. If someone is buying backpacks for their children they can just pick up one more and get it into us,” Downing said. “The same with the school

supplies – just pick up a few more items and get it to us. We are not able to give all the supplies that the schools require for elementary and high school, but we give as much as we get donated.” The centre, Downing added, seems to always struggle with the geometry sets, dictionaries and calculators; they are the most expensive and we do not get many donated. Donations of school supplies can be dropped off at our office at 2339 Ogilvie Rd. in the Beacon Hill shopping mall. For more information they can also call 613-741-6025 list of items

Theft from vehicles can be prevented EMC news – Ottawa police say residents can help to reduce the incidents of vehicle theft and thefts from vehicles. Thefts from vehicles is one of the easiest crimes for a thief, given the opportunity provides ease. The criminal will target unattended vehicles at opportune moments, reducing the chances of being seen. Vehicles parked overnight in quiet residential neighborhoods are prime targets, with little chance of a witness. Thefts range from change in the ashtray, GPS systems, cigarettes, mp3 players, to the theft of the vehicle itself. Opportunity is directly related to some basic prevention tips: • Don’t leave the doors

unlocked when you are away from the vehicle. • Don’t keep personal identification in the vehicle. A photocopy of your vehicle ownership meets the legislated requirements to surrender documents to the police upon request. • Don’t leave automatic garage door openers in the vehicle as they can allow access to your home. • Don’t leave any attractive valuables in the vehicle. • Always leave the vehicle interior clean and empty. It won’t look inviting. • Always park the vehicle in well-lit areas. If you have a landlord, advise them immediately about broken or burned out lights. Report suspicious activity to the police.

Pet Adoptions PET OF THE WEEK TRUSSLE

PUMPKIN

ID#A140890

ID#A118132

Pumpkin is a spayed female, orange tabby Domestic Longhair cat who is about six years old. She was surrendered to the shelter by her owner on July 13. Pumpkin loves to eat… but only dry food. She has a laid back personality, and will even let you carry her around like a baby. Pumpkin gets along well with other cats, children and adults. She may be shy around people she doesn’t know at first, but she loves to receive affection once she is comfortable with you. Pumpkin would love a sunny spot to take a catnap in her forever home. For more information about these or other animals available for adoption, please call the Adoption Centre at 613-725-3166 ext. 258 or visit www.ottawahumane.ca.

Trussle is an unaltered female, sable and white Dwarf Campbell hamster. She is about seven months old and was surrendered to the shelter by her owner on July 21. Trussle’s large incisor teeth continually grow, so she will need lots of chew toys and things to gnaw on to wear down her teeth to prevent them from overgrowing. Hamsters have docile temperaments and relatively clean habits. Hamsters are friendly and when handled often, they become quite tame. Some will acknowledge their owners and will eagerly look for treats when approached. Hamsters should be handled gently, scooping them up and cradling them in the palms of your hands. Hamsters have poor eyesight but a keen sense of smell and excellent hearing. Because they cannot see very well they are not as sure-footed and steady on their feet as some other animals. They can very easily fall off of furniture or tables and should be held or contained when out of their cage.

A QUICK GUIDE TO HAMSTERS A pet hamster may require taming.

Before adopting a pet hamster, consider the following:

If you allow your hamster outside the cage, supervise him or her very carefully —hamsters are good at hiding in tight spots and have poor eyesight so cannot easily find their way.

Hamsters need nutritious food, fresh water and a clean habitat daily. Hamsters need daily exercise and play. All household members should understand how to hold and play with a hamster, and they should all be as eager as you to welcome a hamster into the family. Hamsters are nocturnal, requiring cleaning, feeding and handling in the late afternoon or evening.

Hamsters are nocturnal and can become cranky if you disturb their daytime sleep. Try to limit cleaning, feeding and handling to the late afternoon and evening. Accommodate your hamster’s natural rhythms, and you will find an eager companion.

Place your hamster’s cage in a dimly lit room, away from drafts, direct sunlight and noise. Find a location that will allow the hamster to sleep during the day and family members to sleep at night. Select a spacious cage with a solid, deep bottom. You can choose from wire cages, aquariums and plastic cages. Plastic cages full of tubes and tunnels can be fun for a

Orléans EMC - Thursday, August 2, 2012

Be sure to check any cage closely for secure fastenings. Hamsters love to escape! Since hamsters are solitary, private animals, your pet will appreciate a hiding house. An old cardboard box will double as a gnawing object. Shred white, unscented tissues to provide nesting material. Dog biscuits or twigs from a pesticide-free beech, maple or fruit tree will help keep your hamster’s teeth properly worn down. Supplement your hamster’s pellet food mix with alfalfa pellets and fresh vegetables and fruits, such as spinach, lettuce, apple and cauliflower to help keep your pet healthy. A hayrack filled with hay can provide necessary roughage, and a salt lick can prevent mineral deficiencies. Never offer beans, apple seeds, parsley, tomatoes, or green or sprouted potatoes: all are poisonous to hamsters.

Hamsters have become one of the most popular small pets. Frisky and fun to watch, hamsters tend to sleep during the day and play at night. Hamsters warm to human companions, but don’t welcome the company of their own kind. A single hamster can provide hours of enjoyment as you watch your pet frolic and stuff his or her cheeks with seed. The average life span for a hamster is two years.

Blais wants action plan to cut gun and gang crime Police planning a gang-violence symposium this fall Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - With gun incidents on track to reach double the number of shootings Ottawa had last year, Cumberland Coun. Stephen Blais wants the city to create a plan to tackle gun and gang crime. There have been 27 gun-related incidents in Ottawa so far this year, compared to 23 cases in all of 2011. While there are many city programs and initiatives from non-profit groups aimed at preventing youth from getting involved with gangs, they lack a co-ordinated approach, Blais said. “There’s not a common game plan that everyone is following. There is not a playbook,” Blais said. “Unless there is a playbook to follow and a quarterback calling the plays, you tend to have a lack of co-ordination, which leads to questionable results and the inability to measure progress, which means resources are be-

ing used inefficiently.” Blais wants to see a few other changes, including updates to the city’s gun discharge bylaw, which hasn’t kept pace with the city’s urban boundary expansion. Some populated rural areas of the city, including Millennium Park in Cumberland ward, still fall within the area within which people can legally discharge firearms. Blais also wants new zoning rules to define locations where merchants could sell firearms. That would be in addition to provincial and federal rules related to licensing merchants who sell firearms and ammunition. Banning “violent criminals” from subsidized public housing is another Blais’ goals, but he will have to settle on sending a letter calling on the provincial government to enact that legislation, since it is not within the city’s purview. “The provincial government should allow us to ban thugs, convicted of serious crimes, especially ones involving guns, from living off of the taxpayer in public housing,” Blais stated in a press release. Much of what Blais wants the city to do is already part of the mandate of Crime Prevention Ottawa,

File photo

Coun. Stephen Blais is calling for a plan to tackle gun and gang crime. but Blais said CPO deals with much broader issues. Plus, CPO’s resources are limited, with only a couple of city staffers working on collaborative crime prevention measures. Nancy Worsfold, executive director of CPO, said plans are already underway for a symposium and strategy to tackle gang violence. “It’s a great idea and CPO and the chief of police are meeting on Monday to do just that,” Worsfold said,

adding that she’s thrilled Blais wants to lend some momentum to initiatives CPO has been working on. Last week, Ottawa police chief Charles Bordeleau announced the symposium will take place in the fall to tackle the issue of gang violence. The chief said it’s good that Blais has ideas to contribute to the intiative. Bordeleau revealed he was planning the symposium after Premier

Dalton McGuinty announced $12.5 million for violence-prevention programs, including $7.5 million for the provincial anti-violence intervention strategy that funds the Ottawa police unit which deals with gun and gang crime. Another idea Blais proposed is to ask Ottawa police to hold a gun amnesty program to allow people to turn in firearms for the police to destroy. But Bordeleau said gun amnesty is an ongoing program for the police and people can contract the police at any time if they have a firearm for disposal. “What we perhaps need to do is to make it more public,” Bordeleau said. “Maybe we need an advertising campaign to remind the people that they can bring in firearms or call us any time to turn over firearms.” Blais said he will bring forward a series of motions to various city committees for consideration, as well as writing letters to the provincial and federal governments and the city’s police services board. Blais said he doesn’t want his ideas to put an additional burden on the city or police budget. “Perhaps we need to redistribute (funds) from other areas,” he said.

EMC news - The Ottawa fire department has responded to many recent calls involving  grass or brush fires and burn complaints from unauthorized open air burning. In recent weeks, more than 10 charges have been issued by bylaw officers for open air burning and one charge is pending. The fire department is reminding residents that open air burning is strictly prohibited in the city unless a burn permit has been issued. Due to the ongoing dry weather conditions, a burn ban  re-

mains in effect, so no open air burning is allowed. Firefighters suspect that many of the grass and brush fires are being caused by carelessly discarded cigarettes. take care

They would like to remind residents to take extra care when discarding their cigarettes. • Use large deep ashtrays that cannot be knocked over. • Do not extinguish cigarettes in plant pots, which often contain a mixture of peat moss, shredded wood and bark that can be easily ignited. • Extinguish butts by dousing them with water or crushing them thoroughly in bare mineral soil or on bare rock, asphalt or cement.

LIBRA – Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, start thinking about curbing your spending. Your finances are in trouble if you don’t make some changes. More is going out than is coming into your accounts.

TAURUS – Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, a good night is in store this week. The night brings rewards you did not expect. Working hard yields more than financial success.

SCORPIO – Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, there’s not much you can do about the current situation. Complaining about things won’t solve anything, so why waste the breath? Better news is on the horizon.

GEMINI – May 22/Jun 21 Trust your instincts, Gemini. Someone who seems like they have your best interests at heart really may have ulterior motives. Heed Capricorn’s sage advice. CANCER – Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, you may feel like you’re the only one keeping the ship from sinking. However, this is not the case. Behindthe-scenes work is taking place, too. LEO – Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, it seems as if drama is always following you. That’s because you tend to be the life of the party or prefer all eyes be on you. Think about being less conspicuous. VIRGO – Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, it’s hard to keep friends if you are overly critical of the way they live their lives. Remember, no one is perfect — including you. Keep an open mind.

Sometimes as challenging as life can be, you take chances and push yourself further, Aries. This could prove a week to do some risk-taking and exploring new ideas. It could take a lot to raise your ire this week, Taurus. However, if your mood is already set to simmer, you may have a full-blown boiling over at the slightest taunt. It is easy to bury something and ignore it, Gemini, but it’s not always easy to face a problem head-on. Make an effort to figure out issues that keep recurring in your life.

Take a few moments to focus on your future, Cancer, rather than just what needs to be done in the present. Open your mind to real long-term goals.

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!

4. Small European finch 5. Scorns through ridicule 6. Degraded 7. Bird shelter 8. Opposite of acid 9. Layered pieces 10. Arabian Gulf 11. Naked 12. Scrambled or poached 13. The sheltered side 21. Hawaiian dance 22. 4th planet from the sun 27. C6H12N3OP insect sterilant 28. Pickerel genus 29. Georgian monetary unit 30. Urban gym 31. Large muscles of the chest

Don’t set yourself up for frustration, Scorpio. Avoid any people who cause you conflict and any activities that bring you grief. Enjoy yourself instead. Sagittarius, although you didn’t think things could get much busier, this week you will find more on your plate. Don’t be overly concerned. There will be time to get things done. More enjoyable things are on the horizon, Capricorn, and you could find yourself distracted by so many enjoyable activities. Try to schedule one per week.

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18

You are overly focused on the minute details of the things you do, Virgo. But somehow the bigger picture has escaped your perusal lately. Remedy that this week.

Your curiosity could get the best of you this week, Libra. You may end up delving into things that are better left unturned. Take a step back and find a new focus.

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23

Arguments can quickly turn stressful, Leo. So try your best to avoid any confrontations this week and your body will thank you. Unresolved issues could pop up.

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Patience is a virtue, Aries. The best will be in store for you later in the week. There’s not much chance for adventure Monday or Tuesday, but things pick up on Wednesday.

No one can solve your conflicts better than you, Aquarius. Although your options seem to be a little stifled as of late, you’ll find the way to impart changes. The planets are giving you the cosmic go-ahead to get things done, Pisces. So don’t delay your actions any longer.

Asthma is one of the most commun diseases in the world. It is a chronis respiratory disease which is characterized by an obstruction of the airways, hindering a person’s ability to breathe. In addiction to causing significant discomfort, asthma can cause serious medical consequences for those suffering from the disease. If you suffer from asthma, here are a few tips to help you better manage the disease: • Avoid asthma triggers (dust, strong odours, intense emotions, smoke, pet hair, etc.); • Avoid cigarette smoke at all costs, including second-hand smoke; • Try to obtain as much information as possible on asthma and its treatment; • Take advantage of the services offered by an asthma education centre; • Be sure to take all your medication as prescribed and strictly observe the action plan given to you by your doctor; • If your use an inhaler, make sure you are fully aware of the technique on how to administer the medication. Ask a health prodessional to show you how to use it correctly. Certain devices such as the AeroChamber Plus Flow-VuMC, can facilitate taking medication that must be inhaled. It consists of a valved holding chamber which retains a measured dose of medication until the person is ready to inhale it. Such a device also increases the effiency and safety of the treatment.
