EMC news - One Orléans resident said she may sellher house if a planned expansion of highway 174 goes through. Andrea Smith, who has lived in her house on St. Jovite Ridge for five years, said the house already shakes when a bus or a big truck goes by. “Right now my kids drown out the noise when they are playing in the backyard but we are worried about what will happen when it becomes six lanes,” she said. Smith, along with several other residents of Orléans and Cumberland, attended the first of a series of public information sessions at Sir Wilfrid Laurier Secondary School on Feb. 7. The proposed expansion would see the 174 go from four lanes to six from the split to Trim Road, then four lanes along Highway 17 to Landry Road in Rockland. The study will consider improvements to the existing

174/17 corridor, upgrades to other existing roads and the construction of new roads in the study area. Smith said currently there is only a chain-link fence separating her yard from the highway. An expansion could pose more danger to her children as well as increased noise and vibrations. The public meeting was held to gauge public opinion of the environmental assessment process and hear some of the concerns. fall meeting

Valerie McGirr, the project manager, said another open house in the fall will discuss design alternatives. “For now we are just getting a sense of the conditions and determining transit needs,” she said. The City of Ottawa and the United Counties of Prescott and Russell are partners on the project. Currently the City of Ottawa has the expansion of the 174 listed as a phase 2 priority under the city’s transportation master plan, which means it could be constructed sometime between 2016 and 2022. Even with conservative estimates, the existing work done by the project team has showed that roadways in the area will reach capacity by 2031. McGirr said traffic problems have been indentified for many years. The area around Green’s Creek is already at capacity, with other areas like Bilberry Creek set to reach capacity in 2031. As part of the environmental assessment, the study team had to look at alternatives to widening the road.

EMC sports - Orléans and Ashbury cadets are going to be in for a shock when Allister Beauchamp and the Snap Fitness team take over during their Feb. 23 fitness day.

cadets to go all out, flipping tires and cranking out more pushups than they’ve ever done before. The aim of the games is to give the cadets a fitness challenge to work towards after the Feb. 23 assessment, and get youth active on an ongoing basis. Beauchamp, who owns the Orléans and Rockland Snap Fitness locations, said he was shocked when he recently read a study that claimed for the first time in 100 years, youth have a shorter life expectancy than their parents. So when he got talking to the cadets during an Orléans Chamber of Commerce meeting, he thought it was a perfect fit. The fitness day is planned for the Major

EMC news - The Forces and Families campaign, a new third-party initiative to raise funds for the Military Families Fund was launched on Jan. 2013. Spearheaded by John Randolph, a philanthropist and founder of the successful annual Canadian Forces Appreciation Day in Toronto, this campaign will be carried out to meet the ongoing needs of the Canadian Forces community. The Forces and Families initiative will feature innovative media tools, membership drives, the sale of custom goods in retail outlets and partnerships with professional associations, corporate Canada and individual Canadians. All proceeds from this initiative will accrue to the Military Families Fund to address mental health well-

ness issues facing members of the Canadian Forces community.   Commodore Mark Watson, the director general of personnel and family support services, emphasized that, since the Military Families Fund was established in 2007, Canadians have been exceptionally generous in their donations to the fund. Contributions remain the most direct way in which Canadians can contribute to the morale and welfare of military members and their families. “The Canadian Forces wishes John and his team continued success,â€? Watson says. “We will support these innovative efforts fully within our mandate and look forward to the continued strong support of the Canadian public.â€?

For example, when Hurricane Sandy devastated parts of the United States, Hydro Ottawa crews were the first to cross the border to help get the power restored in Connecticut and New Jersey. Hydro Ottawa crews also helped other utilities in Quebec and Ontario just before Christmas after a major storm. “Caring for our neighbours and our community is a really important part of our fabric as an organization,� said Parent-Garvey. At Hydro Ottawa, caring includes putting safety first and lending a hand to other communities in need.

For the fifth consecutive year, Hydro Ottawa has been named one of the National Capital Region’s Top Employers. Lyne Parent-Garvey, Hydro Ottawa’s Chief Human Resources Officer, says it is a culture of caring that the company has built up over the years that makes Hydro Ottawa a great employer.

Bust a Move changes celebrity of choice Michelle Nash

EMC news - Celebrity guest Jenny McCarthy has been booted from this year’s Ottawa Cancer Foundation Bust a Move event. The foundation launched Bust a Move, an event to raise money and awareness for breast cancer on Jan. 29 with the naming of McCarthy as the fundraiser’s fitness ambassador. Bust a Move chairwoman, Bernice Rachkowski said the

comedienne was originally chosen because of her fun attitude. “We wanted someone who would get involved and have fun,” she said. “This event is about everyone coming out and having fun.” A Hollywood celebrity and author, McCarthy is wellknown for writing and speaking out about her ideas concerning healthy living, including making controversial statements about possible links between infant vaccines and autism.

She also claims to have healed her son from the disorder. The foundation announced it was replacing McCarthy as guest speaker on Feb. 1, Ottawa Cancer Foundation president Linda Eagen said the controversy surrounding the celebrity was drawing attention away from breast cancer awareness and fundraising. “We did get questions from a number of different sources, not just in Ottawa, she (McCarthy) has a strong focus on fitness, but she also has strong

opinions in other areas, all the attention was going towards her opinions rather than the focus on the fundraiser and the fitness event,” Eagen said. In McCarthy’s place, Canadian fitness coach Tommy Europe will be leading the fundraising event on March 2. “We are proud to work very closely with our partners in the medical community and the general public to raise funds and awareness for cancer care in our community, said president of the foundation,” Eagen

Boundary Rd. chosen for new dump site Brier Dodge

A graphic shows the study area of the environmental assessment to look at the expansion of highway 174.

New bridge traffic not considered in study McGirr said a new route wouldn’t be an alternative because it doesn’t fit with the NCC’s Greenbelt master plan. Widening Innes Road isn’t an alternative because it won’t deliver the capacity needed and widening St. Joseph would cause a “significant impact” on the Orléans community. Other alternatives for the segment from Trim to Rockland and in the town of Rockland were similarly examined and rejected. Orléans Coun. Rainer Bloess said he is worried the assessment doesn’t consider ongoing noise barrier retrofit programs and plans for an interprovincial bridge. “It seems out of sync,” he said. McGirr said those projects would be considered, but an environmental assessment can’t include input until the bridge crossing site is determined. “Will it change traffic patterns? Yes, but we don’t cur-

rently have that information,” she said. Carl Ward, a resident of Orléans, said he is worried about the public’s safety in the way of the expansion. “We already have problems with vibration and noise,” he said. “Things on your mantle will tilt and I think we have to seriously consider that.” McGirr said environmental

EMC news - Taggart-Miller announced that the Boundary Road site has been chosen over the Russell site for the proposed Capital Region Resource Recovery Centre. The site is east of Boundary Road, and south of Highway 417. The Russell site, the original solo site announced for study, was protested by the Dump This Dump group – with the Carlsbad Springs group later forming the Dump This Dump 2 group to protest it. The site would provide disposal for industrial, commercial and institutional and construction and demolition sectors. A huge amount of feedback came in to the Ministry of the Environment from residents protesting the site. “It became clear that the Boundary Road site was the best location for our proposed integrated waste management facility,” said Hubert

Bourque, project manager for Taggart Miller, the company building the facility, in a statement. “The site has outstanding transportation links, is underlain by a deep clay deposit that provides very good natural containment for the landfill and other facilities, and is beside an existing industrial park.” As the next part of the environmental assessment, studies Taggart Miller has to undergo to have the final site approved, there are two open houses planned. One will be on Feb. 25 from 4 to 9 p.m. at Carlsbad Community Centre at 6020 Eighth Line Road, with a second on Feb. 27 from 4 to 9 p.m. at the Russell Arena at 1084 Concession St. in Russell. Right away, the Dump This Dump 2 group planned an event called “Don’t Trash Ottawa”, scheduled to run on Feb. 9. Residents planned to petition the proposal by skating along the canal wearing red, Dump This Dump shirts and signs.

We all have a stake in a Liveable Ottawa


ecently, the Liveable Ottawa plan for rebooting the city’s major master plans was unveiled at city hall, revealing a vision for the capital for years to come. Mayor Jim Watson and Alta Vista Coun. Peter Hume, the planning committee chairman, pledged the review, particularly of the city’s Official Plan, would provide much needed “certainty� to what can often be the chaotic world of development.

This exercise, accompanied by reviews of plans for pedestrians, cycling, transportation and infrastructure, will go a long way towards aiming all the city’s efforts in the same direction, towards a more sustainable city, which is exactly where Ottawa needs to be headed. As Hume said during the Jan. 29 launch of the Liveable Ottawa project, the refreshed Official Plan “will be more prescriptive than ever before in terms of where the vision

for height and density is in this city.� This will provide clear rules governing where intensification will go in the city, removing much of the fuzziness that causes a great deal of angst among residents living in transitional neighbourhoods across the city. Many of the decisions during this process will undoubtedly raise concerns among residents in places like Centretown, Lowertown, Westboro and Vanier. Those residents worry intensifi-

cation will only serve to bring the burden of added population and traffic to their neighbourhoods. But that need not be the case, as the Liveable Ottawa project offers the city an excellent opportunity to align the other master plans with the Official Plan. This, if done with care and consideration, will insure the intensified neighbourhoods of Ottawa’s future provide the infrastructure needed to accommodate denser popula-

tions. But there’s the rub: Liveable Ottawa needs to be done well if the city is to be sustainable for generations to come. Intensification is the new normal for cities, as suburban sprawl has proven to be unsustainable, but that doesn’t mean creating density for density’s sake is an easy task. It will take a considerable amount of input from city staff, councillors, developers and residents to come up with a plan that will provide for the sustainable city we all desire. This means it is incumbent upon both the members of the development community and

residents to get involved with this process -- the official and master plans will be much better for their efforts. It will also require those two groups, often at odds with one another, to see things from the others’ perspective. Change is difficult, but it is made easier when reasonable people are considerate and accommodating of views that might not be their own. Ottawa is already a quite liveable city, one of the best places to live in North America, if not the world. Engagement in the Liveable Ottawa process by all who hold this city dear will keep it that way.


Chocolate for groundhogs CHARLES GORDON Funny Town


o one would ever dare argue that Valentine’s Day is a meaningless ritual, since it involves kissing and chocolate. Still, it wouldn’t hurt to inject some new life into it, to keep it from getting stale. Then there is Winterlude, an Ottawa institution by now but one that is constantly challenged to find ways of coping with changing times and unpredictable weather conditions. It’s not a meaningless ritual, but it could use a new twist or two. If you want a meaningless ritual, take Groundhog Day. What a waste of time, both for people and for groundhogs. In Punxsutawney, Pa., 35,000 people turned out for it. In past years there have arrests for drunken rioting and such. Over a groundhog. In Wiarton, Ont., the status of Wiarton Willie’s shadow has been turned into a three-day festival. There is probably a half-time show. More groundhogs are getting into the act, since it appears that groundhogs seeing shadows, or not, are good for tourism. There’s Balzac Billy in Alberta and Winnipeg Willow in Manitoba. For what it’s worth, none of these guys saw their shadows, which is supposed to mean that spring is less than six-weeks away. Really? In Canada? Groundhog shadow or no, of course there are going to be six more weeks of winter in Canada. Six weeks from Groundhog Day takes you to mid-March. Maybe in Punxsutawney it is reasonable to hope for spring in mid-March, but not anywhere in this country, outside of British Columbia. So what is the point of doing this whole

groundhog thing? So we can enjoy being silly? There are lots of ways of doing that without bothering innocent rodents. So here’s an idea. Valentine’s Day could use some silliness. The kissing and chocolate are good, but sometimes it gets a bit solemn, particularly in those television commercials for jewelry. Also, there is no predictive value in Valentine’s Day: nothing that happens that day tells us anything about when spring is coming. The next step is obvious -- combine Valentine’s Day and Groundhog Day as part of Winterlude. That injects a bit of new life into all three events. It could work in many ways, but one might be that if the Ice Hog comes out on Feb. 14 and sees a heart-shaped chocolate, that means six more weeks of winter. This could all be done on the canal, if there is ice on it. If the Ice Hog comes out on the canal and sees water, it means that the Ice Hog had better learn to swim pretty fast. That makes sense. Six weeks from Feb. 14 takes us just about into April, where spring is an actual possibility. Canadians would actually be glad to think of only six more weeks of winter and their happiness might induce them to purchase more chocolate, take their sweetie out to dinner and support the local economy. Then, just to make it interesting, there could be a possible down-side to the Ice Hog’s prediction. The Wiarton Willie thing is boring because the worst thing that can happen is you get spring in mid-March. What if the Ice Hog comes out on Valentine’s Day, doesn’t see chocolate and that means no spring until May? That would put a little juice into it. It could even create some betting opportunities at our new casino. Having rejuvenated Valentine’s Day, put some spark into Winterlude and some logic into Groundhog Day, there remains only the task of giving this new wonderful event a catchy name. This will not be easy because we know that the federal government will want to name it, as it wants to name everything, after Sir John A. Macdonald. However, that is not a very good name for a groundhog.

Canada Summer Job funding ready Online matchmaking simply turns dating into the end goal

Brier Dodge

EMC news - Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of cash up for grabs for OrlĂŠans-based non-proďŹ t organizations to hire summer students. A total of $336,743 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which is $3,500 more than OrlĂŠans got in 2012 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is available for 2013 summer students to be hired. The Canada Summer Jobs program is open nation-wide to non-for proďŹ t organizations, public-sector employers and small businesses with 50 or fewer employees. But Ottawa-OrlĂŠans MP Royal Galipeau said he will only consider proposals from non-proďŹ ts, and not public-sector or small businesses. In a letter Galipeau sent to Ă&#x2030;velyne Power Reid, director the regional branch of Human Resources and Skills Development Canada, he advised that he would reject any proposals from commercial enterprises. He said that public funds should only support private sector job creation in regions with high unemployment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously, I feel that the private sector in our region should not receive any money,â&#x20AC;? he wrote in the letter, which was also sent to media. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Funds should be distributed to non-proďŹ t organizations that normally depend on volunteer labour to undertake the majority of their activities.â&#x20AC;? He said he would like to see resources focused on arts, culture, childhood difďŹ culties such as autism, and seniors. Last year, the Franco-Ontarian autism societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s summer camp was one of the organizations to receive funding. The camp is the only francophone camp in the area for youth with autism.



Campers at the Franco-Ontarian autism societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s summer camp perform their end of summer show at lâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;OdyssĂŠe public school in OrlĂŠans alongside camp staff in July 2012. Last year, the francophone camp for youth with autism was able to fund some of their summer staff with the Canada Summer Jobs program funding. This year, OrlĂŠans was given a $3,500 increase in funding. The camp was able to hire students who would like to do work with individuals with autism in the future. Hired students have to be 15 to 30 years old, and returning to full time studies after the summer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The spirit of the program in a riding like Ottawa-OrlĂŠans is to provide a boost

to organizations with limited resources while giving young students the chance to gain work experience,â&#x20AC;? Galipeau said in a press release. Applications for summer students must be submitted by Feb. 28. To apply, visit yi/yep/programs/scpp.shtml.

ccording to a recent article in Macleanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s magazine, 20 per cent of heterosexuals and 60 per cent of homosexuals claimed to have met their mates online in 2009. The article goes on to quote experts who believe that online dating â&#x20AC;&#x201C; while great for helping people meet others outside their networks â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is altering our traditional cultural goal of ďŹ nding a mate for life. I believe it. The question is whether weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll allow this trend to continue. I tried online dating just once when mass use of the Internet was in its infancy, circa 2001. Just out of a long relationship, I checked out a local dating website in Ottawa. Most of the entries -there were only about 75 men on there -- were laughable. But there was this one guy. He was a soccer player. He was tall, had great legs, worked in a sports shop. He was very good looking. And based on our online chat sessions over a few weeks, he was dumb as wood. Perfect! We went on a date. It was nice. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to talk about anything intelligent. We ďŹ&#x201A;irted over the table, went for a walk after dinner, he kissed me at the front door. This was deďŹ nitely a guy Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to call again, and not, you know, for conversation. I dreamed about his legs for approximately 72 hours. The following weekend, however, I met my nowhusband on a camping trip in Gatineau Park, and Mr. Soccer Legs never got a call back. The thing is great legs are great. But theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not the type of thing to sustain a relationship long term. The recent Macleanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s piece highlighted growing doubt that algorithms used to match people online according to similar tastes, hobbies and interests mimic what people look for in the real world, particularly in a lifelong mate. This point was brought home when I

met my husband. One of the ďŹ rst things that impressed me about him was his ability to cut grapefruit with precision. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the kind of skill one would note in a dating proďŹ le, nor is it something I would actively seek. Of course, most of us realize that online dating is really just a massive public relationsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; exercise. People put their best selves forward and in return, dating sites promise youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll meet your â&#x20AC;&#x153;soul mateâ&#x20AC;? with just a click of a button. When your match turns out to be less than desirable, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to move on and ďŹ nd your next â&#x20AC;&#x153;soul mate.â&#x20AC;? Sure, in some cases, online dating turns to marriage and the people live happily ever after. But in the virtual world, as in the real world, this may be a statistical anomaly. In most cases, the point of online dating isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t to ďŹ nd Mr. Right, but Mr. Right Now. Not only that, but the Internet makes the dating marketplace so much bigger, notes Macleanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s author Katie Engelhart, that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contributed to an increase in philandering. Engelhart says the logic goes something like this: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why settle down when a better match is just a click away?â&#x20AC;? Only the future will tell if the majority of us will allow this to become a societal norm. Funny enough, about ďŹ ve years after my ďŹ rst and only online dating experience, the subject came up at a ladiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; drinksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; reunion with some of my university colleagues. Turns out, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d all dated Mr. Soccer Legs within six months of each other. Mr. Soccer Legs may have appeared dumb as wood, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d underestimated him. In fact, he was the only person to achieve his goal with that primitive dating website. We were all looking for a mate. Silly, in hindsight. Because there was really nothing about that picture of his legs to suggest he was looking for a wife.

Valentine’s culprit inspires blushes Outstanding young table. It had been crammed full with Valentines bought at the drug store in Renfrew. They were of the simplest kind and each one had a little flap at the bottom that could be bent to allow the Valentine to stand on its own. As always there was one larger Valentine, much more elegant than the others, for the teacher. There was usually a great argument who would get the teacher card, until Mother settled the issue by having the whole five of us sign the back of it. The entire packet wouldn’t have cost Mother more than a quarter. Valentine’s Day at Northcote School was something special. There was always a cake, we wore our next-toSunday best clothes and Miss Crosby crammed an entire day’s lessons into the morning, so that the afternoon could be given over to the celebration of Valentine’s Day. That year, when I was about six years old and still one of the youngest at Northcote School, I remember Valentine’s Day as if it were yesterday. The teacher always chose someone to be the mailman and as usual Marguirite was given the job. Miss Crosby took the lid off the big white mail box and handed Marguirite about five cards at a time. It wasn’t unusual to get a dozen or more Valentines that day. Most of them were signed by the sender, but

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories some just had “from Guess Who” on them. These could be funny, or in some cases with the pupils in Senior Fourth, they bore words that bordered on romance. Of course, these were never signed and I could see my sister Audrey and her friends look around the room, giggle, and try to guess who the sender was. Yes, there were great mysteries abounding on Valentine’s Day at Northcote School. My little friends Joyce and Velma, of course, had cards for me, signed “friends forever” which gladdened my heart. Then there was one card, the picture of which is as vivid in my mind today, as it was back then in the 1930s. In itself, it wasn’t out of the ordinary. There was a picture of a little girl and whoever sent it to me had taken a red crayon and coloured on masses of tangled red curls. They completely covered her head and cascaded down over her shoulders. She was quite a mess and of course I had flaming red hair. There was enough space left at the bottom for the sender to print “I hate red hair.” That was bad enough to turn my face crimson and I quickly scanned the room to see who could be the culprit. Yet there was no sign of

recognition. I turned the card over and there in bold printing, with the same red crayon were the words, “unless it’s on a cat!” Who could have done such a dastardly deed? Cecil! I just knew it had to be Cecil! But could it be? After all, most of the Briscoes had flaming red hair too! But Cecil was clever enough to know that would throw me off. Yes, it had to be Cecil and there he sat, the picture of innocence. He was on such good behaviour that day that I questioned if he in fact did send me the card. He didn’t even crack his toes in his gum rubbers or wiggled his ears one at a time when Miss Crosby wasn’t looking. No, it couldn’t have been Cecil. After we had all been given a piece of the Valentine cake, we were ordered to wipe off our desks. Heaven forbid that there would a crumb left for the mice who came out of the woodwork every night. Joyce and I were given the job of sweeping up the crumbs and as we worked our way up and down the aisles, she with the dustpan and me with the broom, just as I was about to put the broom under Marguirite’s desk, there was a stub of a bright red crayon!

Editor’s Note: Many times Mary has been asked if the people she writes about really existed. As she says, some names have been changed to protect the innocent. Others have graciously allowed her license to use their names in her stories. Such a person was Cecil, who Mary has written about for decades. With a heavy heart, Mary was informed on Feb. 5 that Cecil Brisco died that morning on the family farm at Northcote. Cecil’s family has agreed that he can still be very much a part of Mary’s memories of growing up during the Depression.

Hockey Day in the Hamlet returns Feb. 16 Brier Dodge

EMC news - Blackburn Hamlet will celebrate Hockey Day on Feb. 16 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. this year, opening up two rinks with a variety of activities for area families. “We’ve been running this for the past three years now,” said Blackburn Hamlet Community Association president Laura Dudas. “People just come out and enjoy it, and hit the ice.” The event has been timed a week after most Hockey Day events in the city in order to sync up with the Family Day holiday. The outdoor rink at Norman Johnston Alternative School at the corner of Innes Road and Cleroux Crescent will host the event, with the puddle rink open for non-hockey players to skate. “There will be a lot of activities on and off the ice, so even if you can’t skate, there’s some-

thing,” Dudas said. Because the puddle rink is open in addition to the full rink holding the official games, all ages are welcome to come out for the day. She said Mayor Jim Watson and Coun. Rainer Bloess would attend, and that several other politicians have been invited as well. Hot dogs and hamburgers will be sold, with all proceeds going to the Ottawa Food Bank. The rink at Norman Johnston is the community association’s largest rink of several, and has a shack for skate changes and keeping warm. Prizes will be given out throughout the day. There is no rain date in case of bad weather, with the weekend traditionally having decent skating weather. “Being Canadian, we’re pretty hardy,” Dudas said. “Even when it was pretty cold outside, people still showed up in droves.”

Fluffy potato pancakes Barrage of event invites make tasty any-time meal necessitates new staffer Hearty dish a great way to make use of popular household staple EMC lifestyle - Potatoes are classified as long, round whites, round reds, or sweet. Long potatoes are the most popular. The interior is white, the skin varies from brown and rough (Russet Burbank, Russet Norkotah and Frontier Russet varieties) to buff-colored and smooth (Shepody). Round whites are usually large, round or oval with light to medium skin. The flesh is white (Kennebec, Superior and Cherokee) or yellow (Yukon Gold). Round reds have rosy red, thin, glossy skins, but otherwise they’re similar to round whites. Popular varieties are Chieftain, Rideau, Norland and Sangre. Sweet potatoes (not to be confused with yams, which are sub-tropical) have sweettasting orange flesh. Beauregard, with reddish skin, and

the smaller copper-toned Jewel are the major sweet varieties grown in Ontario. Potatoes are an excellent source of potassium, a good source of vitamin C and a source of fibre and folacin. Enjoy these hearty yet fluffy potato pancakes for breakfast with applesauce or maple syrup. They are equally delicious served for dinner accompany with gravy, ham and carrots.

Mayor, deputies field 4,800 requests in 2012 Laura Mueller

EMC news - A deluge of almost 5,000 event invitations landed on the mayor’s desk last year. Now, the city is preparing to hire a new staffer with an annual salary of $52,000 to handle an influx of requests. Whether a second scheduler for Mayor Jim Watson and his two deputy mayors, Gloucester-South Nepean Coun. Steve Desroches and West CarletonMarch Coun. Eli El-Chantiry, is a good use of tax dollars was the main question that arose from a mid-term governance review report that was considered by the city’s finance committee last week, said deputy clerk Leslie Donnelly. The mayor, who is known to joke that he will attend the opening of an envelope, received a staggering 4,800 requests to appear at events such as openings of new businesses in 2012. Although he couldn’t provide a number for past requests, city clerk Rick O’Connor said there has been a marked increase in invitations for Watson compared to previous mayors. And there is work to be

done even when the mayor and deputy mayors cannot attend, Donnelly said. The scheduler must sort, prioritize and respond to all requests and in some cases, certificates of congratulations or other documents must be prepared instead. The question of whether having a city official at local events is an essential service plagued the clerk’s office, Donnelly said. Clerk staff looked into the matter and determined that the Municipal Act states that elected officials “shall” represent the municipality at official functions. “In our view, this is a core function of the municipal-

jim watson You make city hall more accessible and get more people interested in city hall.”­ The new staffer handling requests would be in addition to the mayor’s existing scheduler, who works in the clerk’s office. The new employee approved by the finance committee on Feb. 5 would mainly handle the schedules of the two deputy mayors. The city is budgeting $75,000 for the position based on additional costs associated with benefits and equipment for the job, such as a computer. The salary would be $52,000. Council must still give final approval to create the new position.

EMC news - It’s music to the planet’s ears. A local radio station is once again planting enough trees to remain Canada’s first and only carbon neutral radio station. Live 88.5 FM, an alternative rock station based in Ottawa, will plant 5,700 trees this spring in the township of Beckwith in partnership with the Rideau Valley Conservation Foundation. For the past three years, the station has donated enough trees to absorb the carbon emissions from the office’s annual energy consumption as well as travel and commuting for 35 staff members. Morning show host Andre “Katfish” Morgan said the station has been keen to go green since it began in 2005. “We identified years ago that this was something that was important to our audience,” Morgan said. “The same people that enjoy smart, modern music and information also care about the planet.” He said the station has become increasingly environmentally conscious as staff continue to participate in the tree planting program. It’s hard to find a scrap piece of paper around the office these days, he said, because everything is done online. The station also sold its H2 Hummer and used the money to finance planting trees. The conservation authority’s forestry program manager Dan Cooper said Live 88.5 has set a high standard for businesses in Ottawa, and others are beginning to follow their lead. “Businesses are getting on board more and more,” Cooper said. “Some will do it because of the carbon, some will do it because it just seems like the right thing to do.” The 5,700 trees will be a mix of about 30 species including white pine, white spruce, white cedar and red pine. The seedlings are grown

at a nursery in Kemptville and will be planted by contractors rather than volunteers. “As much as we love the volunteer side, we’re more committed to the trees surviving,” Cooper said, explaining that the trees need to be planted properly and have multiple follow-ups to ensure they live. The calculation to become carbon neutral asks that the company plant the number of trees that it will take to absorb that year’s carbon in 80 years, Cooper said. So far Live 88.5 has reforested about eight hectares of

the Ottawa Valley. According to a statement, the trees not only absorb greenhouse gas but also produce life-giving oxygen, clean the area’s water supplies, provide wildlife habitat, buffer noise and wind, improve the soil and reduce soil erosion. “Collectively, they make the Ottawa area less vulnerable to the worst effects of unpredictable and unseasonal heavy storms and increasing summer droughts,” the statement said. The Rideau Valley Conservation Foundation is a registered environmental charity working to help protect and conserve the lands and waters of the valley of the Rideau River in Eastern Ontario. The Conservation Foundation builds partnerships and seeks new individuals, corporations and groups wanting to get involved in the vital work of taking care of our own natural environment.

Earn Extra Money! College launches health and Keep Your Weekends Free!

wellness research centre

Partnership allows students to use new and developing technology Jennifer McIntosh

Routes AvAilAble!

EMC news - A cash infusion from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) prompted the launch of a health and wellness research centre at Algonquin College on Jan. 30. The $2.3-million grant is the third grant given to the college through NSERC’s College and Community Innovation program. It will help to link small, local companies with lab space at the college and allow students to use new and developing technology while training for work in their field. College president Kent MacDonald said the launch was about a year in the making. “I think it’s the job of post-secondary educational institutions to improve the communities they are in,” he said. “And with this type of partnership, we can help move products that will benefit Canada’s healthcare system from the idea stage to the marketplace.” The health and wellness

Markus Latzel research centre employs a full-time project manager and a support staff member who together engage students and academic leaders on projects with industry partners. There are currently six such projects underway and staff hope to start 10 more this year. Markus Latzel, president of Palomino System Innovations – a company that uses Cloud computing technology to store health data – said the real life patient data provided by working with nurses at the college’s centre is invaluable.

Mark Hoddenbagh, director of applied research and innovation at the college said research partnerships will result in better trained professionals graduating from the college and entering the workforce. “The mission of this centre is to leverage the college’s existing educational and research strengths to contribute to the health and wellness sectors, resulting in highly trained personnel, economic development and job creation,” Hoddenbagh said. “We are thrilled to launch this new centre which we know will provide a major boost to health and wellness research in Ottawa by enhancing hands-on student training and preparedness for the workplace, assisting entrepreneurs, small and medium enterprises and large companies and further developing the skills of our faculty.” Bert van den Berg, with NSERC, said the grant was the maximum the research council allows and congratulated the college. The council has provided 240 grants to 60 colleges through the innovation program.

Reschedule anniversary dinner – they’ve got cadets Brier Dodge

EMC news - When Capt. Cindy McKee first stayed to volunteer with cadets, it was mostly to kill time while her teenage daughter participated. At first she stayed in the west end, after driving from Orléans to cadets, and shopped – “But you can only buy so many things,” she said. She didn’t sign up expecting cadets to become a part of her daily life, even now that her daughter has finished the program and moved out of the family home. And she certainly didn’t sign up expecting cadets leader Maj. Tim McKee to ask her out on a date, and eventually pop the big question almost a year later at Christmas. They’ve now been married for six-and-a-half years, and their involvement with cadets has only increased. Monday – they have cadets. Tuesday – they have cadets. Wednesday – more cadets. Thursday is the night off, when they play in a dart league, but the weekend usually brings a pile more cadets activities. “I can’t think of a weekend in the past couple of years, minus the summer, that we haven’t had anything cadets on,” Tim said. “It’s the song that never ends.” But they wouldn’t have it any other way. “It’s those little things. It’s those little teeny moments,” Tim said of why it’s all worthwhile. “If it’s 30 hours, so be it, because we got to see the smile out of that one kid; it’s

Brier Dodge/Metroland

Maj. Tim McKee and Capt. Cindy McKee take a quick break before running out the door to Ashbury College, where they work with cadets on Monday nights. The take on cadet business almost every day of the week – and it’s even how they met. worth it.” Even though all their children are grown-up and out of the house, both are still involved with both the Ashbury College cadets corps and the Orléans cadets, which meets at the Orléans legion.

It’s easier for the couple to commit the time because they don’t have as many distractions as some of the younger parent volunteers – even though they both started as “SIPs” (sucked-in parents). “We don’t have the little kid that’s


going to be sick; we don’t have homework,” Tim said. “We’re at the point where everything is settled.” While the McKees have summers off, they have a busy schedule of their own cadets training, and the winters are full of activities like

winter survival camp or biathlon training. On top of that, the Orléans cadets need to raise about $40,000 a year to subsidize the operating budget. So when Tim was asked why he first wanted to ask Cindy out, he said, “I was really impressed, she was clearly a very organized woman… but I mean, what guy wouldn’t (want to go out with her).” “He was a puzzle I wanted to figure out – and look at how tall he is,” Cindy said of Tim, who stands at six-feet-six “The cadets really look up to him.” But even when asked about themselves, the couple usually find a way to quickly relate it back to the kids they work with or point out the strengths of the free cadets program. Working with 170 kids a week, they’ve seen many through the program flourish with the structured activities, and it’s kept the McKees going back for more. “Anniversary, we were doing something cadets. My birthday, too. There’s always something,” Cindy says. They just “find a Saturday” for special occasions, because they are where they want to be. And even though they don’t see each other much while activities are actually going on, they’re still working as a team, with Tim the voice leading the staff and youth, and Cindy busy making things happen. “She’s the brains,” Tim said. “I make the promises – she makes them come true.”

Community leaders sleep in extreme cold for youth Michelle Nash

EMC news - Extreme cold and frostbite warnings didn’t stop some Ottawa community leaders from sleeping outside to help raise awareness for youth homelessness. The Youth Services Bureau held its first Sleep Out for Youth Ottawa in partnership with the John Howard Society, Operation Come Home and Ottawa Salus on Feb. 4 to 5 at city hall. Joanne Lowe, the executive director of the Youth Services Bureau, was one of the brave individuals who took to the cold for the cause. “It was great, it was cold, but you know the turn out was fantastic,” Lowe said. “The goal was to raise awareness, and raise funds. One of the interesting things was that it was a broad range of people that came out, from high school and college students, families with young children and community leaders. It was heartwarming to see the range of


Members of the community take part in the city’s first Sleep Out for Youth Ottawa organized by the Youth Services Bureau, John Howard Society, Operation Come Home and Ottawa Salus on Feb. 4 and 5. The event aims to help raise awareness and money to prevent youth homelessness. people come out to support this mission.” From 5 p.m. to 8 a.m., Lowe and other community leaders, including police Chief Charles

Bordeleau and Mayor Jim Watson, spent time in the cold. “There are 1,000 homeless youth living on Ottawa streets,” Bordeleau said prior


to the event. “This disturbing data provided serious incentive for community leaders to demonstrate our support for this youth initiative.” As the sun began to rise on

Mom, can we go to another one?

Feb. 5, the group learned they had managed to raise $35,000 for the cause. The money will be split between the four organizations with around $15,000 going directly towards funding the Youth Services Bureau’s shelters and drop-ins. Lowe added she felt the event’s main goal of creating the awareness, systems and supports that young people need to move beyond the streets was achieved. “The message went out in a number of different mediums and I think it has really made people talk about it,” Lowe said. The idea for the fundraising event came from a Youth Services Bureau donor, Mike Weider, who wanted to see his family’s contribution help youth on the streets. Lowe said the Weiders’ donation helped fund the event, helping collect more money for street youth. Lowe recounted all the warm clothing, sleeping bags and items, such as hand warmers to keep the cold at bay for her and all the other participants during the evening. She said the group discussed how different their evening could have been if, like the youth they were fighting for, they only had a minimum amount of clothing to stay warm. “We had tons of warm op-

tions and we all felt so fortunate for having all these things to keep us warm,” Lowe said. “Most youth on the street don’t have that. We made the choice to go outside, but in many cases youth on the street don’t get

to make that same choice.” The Youth Services Bureau serves at-risk youth in the city and has 20 locations across Ottawa that run a number of programs and services. Its services range from mental health and addiction counselling, housing, youth justice and employment services. According to Lowe, the bureau has recorded a 75 per cent success rate in helping youth who use its services.

Carleton University launches first national Paratriathlon Academy Steph Willems

EMC news - Carleton University is poised to become a paratriathlete training ground following the Feb. 1 announcement of a joint pilot project with Triathlon Canada. Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ rst National Paratriathlon Academy will offer aspiring athletes in the Ottawa-Gatineau region access to paratriathlon training and programs, as well as partnership opportunities with the university. The venture was announced by Minister of State (Sport) Bal Gosal at the Carleton University Fieldhouse. Calling it a â&#x20AC;&#x153;fantastic initiative,â&#x20AC;? Gosal extended his appreciation to Triathlon Canada and Carleton for embarking on the new project. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m convinced this innovative (partnership) will lead to the growth of paratriathlon and result in even more outstanding performances and med-

als for our paralympians, as we saw in London (last year),â&#x20AC;? said Gosal, crediting Canadian Paralympic Committee executive director Francois Robert for â&#x20AC;&#x153;raising the bar every day.â&#x20AC;? Triathlon Canada receives federal funding through Sport Canada and Own the Podium, as well as private funding through a number of organizations. The paratriathlon is a new sport announced three years ago to debut at the 2016 Paralympic Games. Consisting of a 750-metre swim, 20-kilometre bike course and a ďŹ ve-kilometre run, paratriathletes compete using racing wheelchairs and hand cycles, as well as sighted guides for those with visual impairments. In anticipation of the 2016 Games, Triathlon Canada has grown its paratriathlon program to help athletes beneďŹ t from new opportunities. The National Paratriathlon Academy, which can be joined for a nominal fee by those

ages 16 and up, will offer two on-site training camps each month, online webinars, and opportunities to access further advanced training. The goal is to form a nationwide network of academies through partnerships with postsecondary institutions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The sport is growing at a rapid pace in Canada and around the world,â&#x20AC;? said Roseann Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Reilly Runte, president and vice-chancellor of Carleton University. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Triathlon Canada has been recruiting people to the sport and conducting training camps in advance of the World Championships over the last two years. The group has enhanced competition schedules in preparation for Rio. With more paratriathletes competing at the 2012 World Championships, the world is pushing the bar and Triathlon Canada will not stand still.â&#x20AC;? See SUMMER, page 26


Jennifer Hopkins, World Paratriathlon Champion, speaks at the launch of a pilot project between Carleton University and Triathlon Canada on Feb. 1. The project will see the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first national paratriathlon academy created at the Carleton campus to give athletes access to training and opportunities in advance of the 2016 Paralympic Summer Games.

Paratriathletes Christine Robbins, including Noella Klawitter, Jill Tymchek, and Adam Jones were happy to announce the new training program alongside State (Sport) Bal Gosal and National Paratriathlon Academy Program manager Michel Elibani at the programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Feb. 1 launch at Carleton University. STEPH WILLEMS/METROLAND

Summer Games prep underway at Carleton Continued from page 25


Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Reilly Runte called it â&#x20AC;&#x153;ďŹ ttingâ&#x20AC;? for the academy to set up shop at Carleton, due to the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s accessibility, including seven kilometers of heated underground tunnels. Larry McMahon, operations director of Triathlon Canada, said his organization and the athletes it supports have â&#x20AC;&#x153;beneďŹ ted greatlyâ&#x20AC;? from its many partnerships, including one with Carleton, as their mission statements of inclusivity and accessibility overlap perfectly. McMahon outlined the aims of the academy, only one of which was to garner more medals.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;If successful, this will ultimately lead to a talent pool capable of achieving international podium results, such as the Paralympics, as well as promoting participation in sport, just for the love of it,â&#x20AC;? said McMahon. The launch featured an inspirational speech from World Paratriathlon Champion Jennifer Hopkins, who achieved success in her sport despite battling multiple sclerosis and lupus, as well as a rare neurological disease. She began to train as a way of combating these afďŹ&#x201A;ictions, and soon grew to love it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always loved to run, but swimming and biking were never my ďŹ rst passions,â&#x20AC;? said Hopkins. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Suddenly, when I began to

swim, I found myself loving the three disciplines â&#x20AC;&#x201C; running, biking and swimming. Triathlon became my new passion.â&#x20AC;? Hopkins participated in a triathlon in 2008, followed by an Ironman race in 2009 that she used as a platform for an MS fundraiser. That started her career in professional competition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Without training groups, clubs, programs training camps and even academies that let us join, you just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know where Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next world champion or paralympian will come from,â&#x20AC;? said Hopkins of the new project. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about giving people regardless of their age, disability or background the opportunity to participate in sport.â&#x20AC;?

City plans to tackle demolition by neglect Laura Mueller

EMC news - Even before an engineers report revealed a former girls’ school on Cumberland Street was at imminent risk of collapse, Coun. Mathieu Fleury and the mayor’s office were working to prevent similar hazards. The vacant heritage building at the corner of Murray and Cumberland streets stands as a monument of something local heritage advocates have long railed against: demolition by neglect. Poster-covered hoarding around the building obscure the graffiti and paint-covered walls. Right in the downtown core, where property values and condo development have reached a fever pitch, the site remained suspended in time, slowing fading and becoming more derelict. It’s one of an estimated 100 properties in a similar state across the city. About 15 of them are considered “problematic,” several of which are located in Fleury’s Rideau-Vanier ward. It’s a sore spot for Lowertown residents, so Fleury reached out the Groupe Claude Lauzon, which counts the school at 287 Cumberland St. in its portfolio of properties. For months, Fleury and Mayor Jim Watson have been

discussing options for Lauzon’s vacant properties, including 287 Cumberland St. There was finally a glimmer of willingness to address the derelict state of the school, but then, on Feb. 1, an engineering report commissioned by Lauzon revealed the building was at imminent risk of collapse. That set off the latest chapter in the troubled relationship between Groupe Claude Lauzon and the city. The city ordered barricades be put up to keep pedestrians and traffic away from the building in case it fell down. A press release was issued and emphasized that Groupe Claude Lauzon would be charged for the cost associated with the barricades – a couple thousand dollars at an absolute minimum – and that the company would have to follow the proper process to get the necessary permit to demolish a designated heritage building. Days later, Lauzon issued a press release through the company’s lawyer. “According to (law firm) Vincent Dagenais Gibson, since 1981, Groupe Claude Lauzon Ltée has been dealing with the city to restore the school, but has faced unfair obstacles at each step,” the statement reads. The Lauzon family canceled an interview with the

EMC scheduled before the collapse and did not return subsequent phone calls. The press release outlines the back-and-forth: Lauzon requested a building permit in 1996 to restore the school, but the city denied the request. The company was locked in a legal battle with the city for six years City planning manager John Smit said the city issued a building permit for the 1996 application, but it was rescinded when Lauzon’s contractor did exterior work beyond what was allowed. The permit was re-issued after the court settlement but the company never picked it up. By the time a settlement was reached, the roof and floor framing had collapsed. Lauzon asked the city for permission to tear it down. It’s no excuse, Fleury said. It is not exactly a surprise that property owners such as the Lauzons would want to demolish a building after leaving it to crumble with no upkeep for decades, he said. “If they’re not interested to upkeep the properties, don’t buy heritage property,” Fleury said. These situations could be prevented if the city strengthened and enforced its bylaw outlining the level of upkeep necessary for vacant buildings, Fleury said.


“That’s not the city we want to build,” he added. Finally, that’s in the works. City staff are drafting a proposal that would have tighter wording, allowing the city to enforce property standards above the very minimum. Staff is looking to places like Hamilton, Kingston and Toronto for direction particularly regarding upkeep of vacant heritage buildings, which make up half the approximately 100 vacant properties

wind of the proposed changes to property standards, he sent an excited email to Action Sandy Hill members. “The city has historically refused to enforce its own bylaws on vacant and derelict properties, resulting in a sanctioned double standard that has allowed vacant and run-down properties to fester between well-cared for properties,” Collmorgen wrote. “It appears that the City of Ottawa is finally recognizing that

If they’re not interested to upkeep the properties, don’t buy heritage property Mathieu Fleury

in Ottawa. A proposal will come forward in the coming weeks or months, Fleury said. “We don’t understand why elsewhere in the province, you can go into cities and you can see the site is vacant, but it doesn’t appear to be as vacant as it does here in Ottawa,” Fleury said. It’s a big issue for residents in Sandy Hill, so when community association Christopher Collmorgen caught

it has an obligation to enforce the property standards bylaw on vacant properties!” Enforcement has been a tricky thing in Ottawa. The wording of the bylaw has led to bylaw officers enforcing only the bare minimum, Fleury said. “To be honest, we haven’t done our job there,” he said. “We’re going to clamp down and modify property standards and expect staff to really clamp down.”

The city doesn’t want to see any properties in the core vacant, Fleury said, but if they are vacant, they must be kept to a good standard. “A lot of these properties don’t have roofs, don’t have windows. People access in and out and do drugs in there,” he said. “They are not just eyesores. They become an area for crime.” When it comes to encouraging redevelopment of vacant sites, Fleury said everyone involved needs to come to the table. “There won’t be one element that will solve all issues,” he said. “It’s a combination of multiple angles that will bring the owners to the table, bring the community to the table and actually talk about solutions.” All sites have restrictions, whether it’s a heritage designation or simply zoning rules. It shouldn’t matter whether the blame should rest with the city because its rules are too restrictive, or with the property owner because they are unwilling to work within the parameters of the site they bought, Fleury said. There needs to be a proposal on the table to open a dialog between the city and the developer. “Put a proposal together and let’s have a discussion,” Fleury said.

Pet Adoptions

LOLO D#A151616

Lolo is a spayed, female white Dutch rabbit. The shelter staff think I am about 9 months old. I have been at the shelter since Nov 28, 2012 when she was surrendered by her owner. She is excellent with children and can be adopted at our PAL partner: the PetSmart located in the Centrum Plaza in Kanata. February is adopt a shelter Rabbit Month. Rabbits are intelligent, social animals. When given plenty of attention, they make affectionate and rewarding family pets. They can be trained to use a litter box and are more enjoyable, responsive pets when living indoors as house rabbits. Given appropriate care, a rabbit can live up to ten years.

For more information about these or other animals available for adoption, please call the Adoption Centre at 613-725-3166 ext. 258 or visit

Do you think your pet is cute enough to be “THE PET OF THE WEEK”? Submit a picture and short biography of your pet to find out! Simply email to: attention “Pet of the Week”

Time to make a grooming appointment

Before adopting a pet rabbit, consider the following:

• Rabbits need daily exercise and play. • Rabbits need nutritious food, fresh water and a clean habitat. • Everyone in your household should understand how to hold and play with a rabbit, and be eager to welcome a rabbit into the family! • Rabbits can be destructive. They like to chew on books and wooden furniture and electrical cords, and will need to be monitored and confined. Spay it forward: prevent a litter and save several lives. Help the Ottawa Humane Society find a new loving home for Lolo and more animals like her. Please note: The Ottawa Humane Society has many other companion animals available for adoption. Featured animals are adopted quickly!

This is Mrs. Wiggles, the singing pug of centretown. She can be seen walking in her favourite spot, Dundonald Park, with her distinctive tongue that is always hanging out: a bit in the winter, a lot in the summer. It’s not that she’s sticking it out; it’s more that she can’t really pull it in. When you ask her in a high-pitched voice “Where’s my pug?” She will howl for you. Her favourite music is mambo and her favourite movie is Crocodile Dundee. .

SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22

Aries, be on your best behavior this week. Acquaintances both new and established will have their eyes on you, and it is essential that you make a good impression. Taurus, although you may not be able to see into the future, you can plan for what may happen in the next few days. Now is the perfect time to check in with friends.

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20

Sagittarius, it may be hard to concentrate this week, especially with so many ideas floating around in your head. But do your best to stay focused. Capricron, lend a helping hand when you see an opportunity to do so. Donate your time to someone in need or help a friend or family member complete a project.

Leo, don’t get too excited when things seem out of whack this week. Keep calm and find out how you can set things on the right course. Lead by example, and others will follow.

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22

PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20

Virgo, try not to participate in any new activities this week. You are already over-extended. Clear your to-do lists before you take on any other responsibilities.

Scorpio, you may be more focused on your fantasies and dream life than what is going on in your real life for the next few days. Just don’t wander around in a fog for too long.

Show others how good their lives can be if they just follow a little of your own advice and take cues from what you have done already, Libra. Expect a few converts.

Gemini, get all of your work ducks in a row because you want to ensure you are up for the next promotion or pay increase. Now could be the time to make work your top priority. You may find that you have an easy time of reading people this week, Cancer. Use this trait to your advantage to find out how certain people feel about your new ideas.

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!

Aquarius, clarify your needs and wants. Until you can delineate between these factors you may be spending unnecessarily, which is not what your budget needs. Pisces, it may take a few days for you to handle things, but don’t let that dissuade you from trying. Set your own timetable.
