News - If he could do it differently, Mayor Jim Watson says he would have worked harder to protect slots at the raceway from the start while still securing a secondary casino site in Ottawa. “We should have specifically asked for preferential consideration as part of the condition to have a satellite (gaming facility) at (Rideau Carleton Raceway),” Watson said. “I think if we had gotten that up front, a lot of this debate would have been moot.” Last year, the mayor was very vocal about his vision for an urban or downtown casino that could compete with Lac-Leamy in Gatineau and repatriate gambling revenue lost to Quebec. Last week, the finance and economic development committee he chairs approved a very different vision: the same number of slot machines that are already in place at the Rideau Carleton Raceway, plus the addition of 21 gaming tables council had previously approved as a pilot project. “I don’t think this has been a particularly smooth process and I’ll take the blame for that,” Watson said in a rare moment of candor after the Aug. 26 vote. bad news

A lack of clarity from the province probably didn’t help, Watson said, “but at the end of the day, I’ll wear it,” he said. “This process has not been our council or the OLG’s finest hour.” Watson said the compromise was a way for the city to ensure it has same gaming capacity – and revenue – but in a way that’s in line with “the general parameters of acceptance (of) our community.” Councillors voted on the issue without the benefit of an economic analysis comparing the financial benefit to the city of expanding gambling at the raceway, or at two sites as the city had originally intended to debate that day.

City and Colour named as new act for Folk Fest sabine.gibbins@metroland.com

News – The Ottawa Folk Festival has signed a new headline act to replace Neil Young, who cancelled after his guitarist broke his hand. Folk rock group City and Colour will perform on Sept. 4, the opening night of the music festival, which takes place at Hog’s Back Park. Patti Smith and Her Band will also take centre stage that evening, said organizers. “It’s definitely been a challenging week, but I’d say I’m very pleased that Dallas Green (City and Colour) could accommodate us on such short notice,” said festival spokesman Mark Monahan. “He’ll make a great opening night for the festival.” Young cancelled the show after his guitarist, Frank “Poncho” Sampedro, broke his hand. Neil Young has also cancelled his other concert dates previously booked for his North American tour. City and Colour is fronted by Description : DAG Montréal award-winning BMWMTN000 N dossier : singer-songwriter Client :who has BMWbeen making Dallas Green, Publication : The Gazette waves on the charts as a Canadian Trim : 10.0625” x 7.125” artCouleur : 4C ist.

IN DEMAND

City and Colour’s last Canadian tour sold out in minutes and came on the heels of an international run with sold-out shows across North America and Europe including arena dates opening for P!NK in the U.S. and Biffy Clyro in the United Kingdom. Day tickets for Sept. 4 will be available for purchase starting on Aug. 24 at 10 a.m. at all Ottawa Folk Festival Tickets outlets— as well as three-day passports, adult five-day festival passports, youth festival wristbands, and Folk Clubhouse passports.

Previous purchases of three-day passports, adult five-day festival passports, youth festival wristbands, and Folk Clubhouse passports are still valid for this date (Sept. 4). Organizers will offer fans who previously purchased three-day passports, adult five-day festival passports, youth festival wristbands, and Folk Clubhouse passports before Aug. 20 a $25 credit towards the purchase of their same event pass for 2014. Green’s new touring band includes Jack Lawrence (The Raconteurs, Dead Weather) on bass, Dante Schwebel (Hacienda, Dan Auerbach) on guitar, Doug MacGregor (Constantines) on drums and Matt Kelly on pedal steel guitar and keys. Other acts sure to draw a crowd at the festival include Vampire Weekend (Sept. 5), Kendrick Lamar (Sept. 6), The Avett Brothers (Sept. 7), and The Wailers (Sept. 8). The festival runs over five days, from Sept. 4 to Sept. 8. For more information, visit www. ottawafolk.com.

Book a dental exam, stock up on toothbrushes

good news is that it can be preventable; parents can help their children by teaching them good oral health habits.” To emphasize the importance of prevention, the ODA has a back-to-school checklist for parents: • Schedule regular dental exams with your dentist for the year. • When shopping for back-to-school clothes 10:00am-2:00pm 8:00am-2:00pm • $20 per table and supplies, be sure to include new toothbrushOutdoor Aerobics, Zumba demonstration es on your list. A child’s toothbrush should be Registration closes August 30, 2013 and much more… changed every three months or immediately after an illness. • Make sure your child brushes at least twice (for nominal fee) a day and flosses daily. To encourage healthy 11:00am -2:00pm habits, let your child watch you brush and floss your teeth as often as possible. Children are wonderful imitators, and there’s nothing like a parent’s example to teach them healthy dental practices. • Prepare a healthy and nutritious shopping list for your child’s lunch, including fruits, vegetables and cheeses for snacks. Avoid soft, sticky sweets that get stuck in your child’s teeth 10:00am-2:00pm or stay in the child’s mouth for a long time, Featuring Circus Delights Air Bounce, Game Zone, such as raisins, caramels and lollipops.

Lifestyle - Much to the chagrin of children everywhere, the new school year is just a month away. The Ontario Dental Association suggests parents take advantage of these last few weeks of summer vacation to ensure their kids return to school with an A-plus in dental health. “Now is the perfect time to get the whole family in for a dental examination before the school year begins and schedules fill up,” says ODA president Dr. Rick Caldwell. “Children go through growth spurts, including their mouths and jaws, so ask your dentist about appropriate toothbrush and brushing techniques.” A dental exam can also uncover problems that might go undetected. “Your child may be feeling well, but tooth decay often doesn’t present symptoms in the early stages,” warns Caldwell. It has been reported that tooth decay is one of the leading causes of absences from school. In its Report on the Findings of the Oral Health Component of the Canadian Health Measures Survey 2007-2009, Health Canada found that in the space of one year, 45.7 percent of children six to 11 reported time lost from normal or school activities due to oral health problems. “The pain and discomfort of tooth decay can impact a child’s self-esteem, along with their ability to focus and learn,” says Caldwell. “The

Mayor Jim Watson speaks to the media on Aug, 26 after the city’s finance committee voted to protect existing approved gambling facilities at the Rideau Carleton Raceway only.

R0011367325 R0011367325

That debate was headed off on the morning of the meeting when the OLG sent a letter to the mayor and city indicating that it would not be willing to consider allowing multiple satellite gaming facilities in Ottawa’s zone. The committee also recommended there should be efforts to mitigate the public-health impacts of gambling, including limiting a casino’s operating hours, restricting the number of electronic gaming machines, slowing down the speed of machine play, eliminating casino loyalty programs, prohibiting ATMs on the gaming floor and implementing maximum bet sizes and daily losses. But those recommendations are suggestions for the OLG and its future casino operator – not enforceable rules, Waston conceded. Councillors say the vote was intended to reflect the views they heard from constituents about protecting the raceway as a rural economic driver – not to pursue a gambling hall that would be able to compete with Casino Lac-Leamy. It was a stark contrast from council’s position last fall, when it voted for an open and competitive bidding process that included the Rideau Carleton Raceway site. That specification was relevant because the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation’s stated objective was to bring gambling facilities to where people live – urban areas. As a decidedly rural facility, the raceway would appear to be at a disadvantage under the OLG’s goals. Gloucester-Southgate Coun. Diane Deans, who has been the council member most vocally opposed to new gambling, said she couldn’t see how protecting the existing approved gaming at the raceway could attract a bid for a “world class” facility that casino proponents describe. Alex Lawryk, who represents the raceway, said additional amenities like a hotel will be a large part of what makes the site into a destination. He said the raceway is hoping to undertake an expansion in the future. In voting to limit any new gambling options or revenues to the raceway site, the finance committee eliminated the possibility of a casino or any gam-

SENS SHUT OUT

Dejected Ottawa Senators owner Eugene Melnyk said after the vote that he could not understand why the city was willing to vote to benefit the raceway property owners at the expense of any other business or property in the city, including his casino proposal. But at the end of the day, it’s a call for the OLG to make, Melnyk said. “There’s no question that this is an OLG decision,” Melnyk said. “You can’t single-source this stuff.” Casino proponents on council say the bidding process is open and have suggested Melynk could bid to operate gambling facilities on any site, including at the raceway. Melnyk said his lawyer, Paul Webber, has said what the city is doing is “inappropriate and possibly illegal”

There’s no question that this is an OLG decision Eugene Melnyk

and alluded to possible legal action against the city. The Senators owner argued that developing the Canadian Tire Centre as an entertainment destination with a casino, performance amphitheatre, shopping and restaurant district was critical to ensuring the financial viability of his hockey team, which he said loses $10 million every year. “We will keep going, but we have to come up with a Plan C,” Melnyk said. The mayor said the decision was within the committee’s purview to make. “I knew Mr. Melnyk would be disappointed, but we do have the authority given to us by the OLG to be site specific, or whatever the equivalent opposite of site specific is,” Watson said. He said he expects the city’s strong relationship with the Senators to continue.

Hope grows on for community garden’s anniversary Shepherds of Good Hope’s garden celebrates ninth anniversary Sabine Gibbins

sabine.gibbins@metroland.com

Community – Shepherds of Good Hope celebrated the ninth anniversary of the Hope Garden on Aug. 17. Hope Garden is located in the Kilborn Allotment Gardens at Kilborn Avenue and Haig Drive in the city’s south end. Its success depends on the generosity, passion and goodwill of volunteers, said executive director Anna Silverman.

“We have a tremendous amount of volunteers,” she said. “It takes a lot of work in manning a garden.” Hope Garden is considered one of the most beautiful community gardens in all Ottawa, she added. “It receives a lot of tender loving care from the community, more so than any other garden,” she said. “It’s been a true labour of love for the community and for us.” Last year, Shepherds of Good Hope harvested 1,515 kilograms of organic food, a ma-

jor source of fresh, organic vegetables for their soup kitchen and grocery program. So far this year, 680 kilograms of organic produce has been harvested. The future looks bright, Silverman said. With no immediate plans to expand, she said the organization will continue to grow more produce and seek volunteers to maintain the garden. “It’s just great to see the community pitching in to help,” she said. “I know one thing: we can’t do what we do without the community,” On average, there are about 400 volunteers

The community garden is easily accessible and offers a great assortment of produce – everything from potatoes to tomatoes to lettuce. “We are very proud of our wonderful garden,” said Ann MacDonald, volunteer manager for Shepherds of Good Hope. “This is a major source of fresh, organic vegetables for our soup kitchen and grocery program throughout the summer.”

Goose patrol not worth cost

N

o one likes stepping in poop. From the canine variety to the stuff left behind by the occasional horse, it’s something we’ve tried as a society to banish from our cities. But sometimes these efforts go too far, especially when it costs $30,000, which is what the city is paying a man with a remote-control helicopter to scare off the geese littering the Petrie Island beaches with poop. It’s understandable for the city to attempt to keep its beaches clean. The goose poop at Petrie Island typically forces the closure of the beach a few times a year. Birds have also been a problem in the past at the other beaches too. But $30,000? For a four-month contract to scare away animals that are simply doing what birds do? It’s one thing to take extreme measures in order to protect people from harm. If bears were roaming the streets, $30,000 to keep them away might seem reasonable. Paying that sum to an individual to work six days a week flying what amounts to a toy for big boys around scaring off the geese – and those pesky seagulls, too – is simply excessive. There’s also no guarantee the geese won’t come back. If the flocks return, do we then just ante up once more next summer and watch as the new beach

patrol becomes a familiar facet of urban living? There are other measures available, ones that have been used with varying degrees of success. Britannia Park has seen a transparent net installed above the beach and swimming area to ward off seagulls in the past. It’s unlikely this cost quite as much, it is reusable and works 24 hours a day, seven days a week. If having someone head out to the beach to scare off the birds is what’s needed, the city has more than enough workers on the payroll who could head over with a gas-powered leaf blower a couple of times per day to spook the geese. All of this avoids taking any consideration of whether the geese should be scared off in the first place. Wild animals share our city with us. Every once in a while, a moose will run down a suburban street or a pedestrian will be cornered by an ornery turkey, but neither of these problems warranted a five-figure solution. There are plenty of other sources of E. coli, too. Storm runoff from sewers and farms contribute far more to contaminated beaches than a flock of geese ever would. While the approach is novel, and “hexacopters” might have some civic use down the road, the city should be finding a better use for scarce tax dollars.

Elmore Leonard and the end of summer reading

T

he summer reading season is coming to a close. That’s a shame because when we read in the summer we do real reading. We don’t just pick up the book on the bedside table and read five pages before we go to sleep, the last two of which we have to read again the next day. What we do in vacation reading is spend lots of time with the book, so we get right into it. We carry it around and we can’t wait to get back to it. It forms part of the cottage conversation. What’s that book? What’s it about? Can I borrow it when you finish? There are books that are written specifically for summer reading, of course, so-called beach books. Some of them are pretty good. Others are the literary equivalent of summer movies – lots of empty action and contrived romances. Oddly, the best place to find beach books is at airports, but no one calls them airport books. But there are other books, such as crime novels and spy thrillers, that have some literary credibility when they are well done. Anything by John le Carré would fit into that category, as would the mysteries of Henning Mankell and Ian Rankin and the crime fiction of Elmore Leonard, who died last week after

producing more than 40 exceptionally readable novels. You have to plan your summer reading carefully, since it’s going to be the reading you do most intensely. My pattern, perfected over the ages, has been to alternate the heavier, more literary stuff with a Rankin or something about music or sports. There’s what I think of as a Presbyterian quality to this: you have to finish something that’s good for you before you can move on to the stuff you really like. This summer I was lugging around the late David Foster Wallace’s massive novel Infinite Jest. It is 1,079 pages long, with about 100 pages of footnotes that you need to read. Wallace is brilliant, funny and writes with great passion. He goes for it in every sentence. In-

Ottawa South News EMC - Thursday, August 29, 2013

finite Jest puts me in mind of a John Coltrane solo – it’s intense, creative and it goes on and on. No objection to that, but every once in a while you have to take a break. I’m about halfway through Infinite Jest, having already interrupted it once with another novel and I think my next interruption will be Elmore Leonard’s latest, and last, novel which I’ve been saving for just such an occasion. Leonard’s novels – some of his Ottawa fans call them “Elmores” – have a similar quality to The Sopranos television series: not that they are about organized crime, but that their main characters are not master criminals, but colourful low-life individuals, bumbling through life on the dark side. There is violence in an Elmore, to be sure, but also a lot of humour and incredibly funny dialogue. This is no accident. Leonard followed strict rules for writing, which he shared with readers in 2001. The most important one: “Try to leave out the part that readers tend to skip.” Pretty smart. That would include things like prologues, descriptions of the weather, the scenery and the appearances of characters – since the reader will develop his own mental picture of what a character looks like from what the character does and says.

Leonard would have us avoid verbs other than “said” in describing dialogue, as well as adverbs to modify “said” – no on exclaims excitedly in an Elmore. And the word “suddenly” never appears, because if something happens suddenly the reader should know it anyway. Leonard sums up his rules this way: “If it sounds like writing, I rewrite it.” Of course, there are writers who can get away with breaking any of his rules. There are also writers who shouldn’t try. We read them in the summer and can’t wait to get back to an Elmore.

Want smart kids? Support teachers

A

s we head into another school year, the threats of teacher strikes and work-to-rule seem far behind us, don’t they? It’s hard to believe it was only a year ago that the provincial government waged such a nasty public relations campaign against teachers. Yet it was an effective campaign. Just the other day, I heard someone grumbling, yet again, about teacher salaries. Yes, the government did a good job of painting teachers with the brush of lazy, overpaid complainers. Yet a new book by American science journalist Amanda Ripley should give you pause before criticizing teachers and their salaries. In The Smartest Kids in the World and How they Got That Way, Ripley analyzes international testing results across a number of countries to try and figure out why students in the United States continue to be surpassed in academics, not only by those in Canada, but also by students in countries as diverse as South

spected and well-paid, which is not the case in Ripley’s own country. “...(W)hen the teachers are so educated, they are held in esteem,” Ripley told Maclean’s. “And when they are esteemed, the whole business seems important, more worthy of respect: a virtuous circle.” We are fortunate in Ontario to have teachers that are both highly-educated and well-paid, which means we’re well on our way to having some of the best in the world teaching our children. What’s missing, in many circles, is respect for those in the profession and for the system, itself. So while you’re out spending hundreds of dollars buying new laptops and pencils for the kids or forking over private school tuition fees, it may be worth thinking about picking up a shiny new apple for the teacher. You never know, with a little extra support from you the parent, your kid’s teacher may make him among the smartest in the world.

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse Korea and Finland. Ripley concludes that the single most important contributor to a child’s academic success is the quality of his teacher. Consider this: Ripley found through her research that a child could be in the most decrepit building with limited school supplies and zero access to technology and yet, with the right teacher, could outperform students from some of the wealthiest private schools in California. But what, exactly, makes a good teacher? In an August interview with Maclean’s magazine, Ripley suggested there are a number of factors commonly found among the best teachers, including a combination of high-level educa-

tion and the coaching skills required to push students through difficult tasks or subjects. In Finland, only top students are allowed into teachers’ college, where they spend six years in training, Ripley told Maclean’s, while math teachers in that country require a master’s degree in the subject before doing their training as educators. But the most profound difference in the countries where academic success is prevalent? Academics in those countries are held in high regard, while teachers and the institutions they serve are given broad public support by parents and politicians. After all, smart and talented people are more likely to enter into a profession that is re-

Your generosity and kindness touch our hearts.” Founded in 1990, JACC is a registered Canadian charity that is truly unique in the children’s charity sector for four very important reasons. It is not illness or disease specific, assisting children from birth to 21 years of age to fill the gap where other charities leave off and act as a safety net for Ontario children when all other resources have been exhausted. JACC has provided essential help to more than 11,000 seriously ill children over the past 23 years and will continue to do so. “LCBO’s province-wide store network and incredibly supportive staff help us raise significant funds to help the families we serve across Ontario, and increase public awareness of our charity. We appreciate the support we receive from the LCBO, its employees and especially its customers,” says Jane Sleep, JACC’s executive director.

I was pleased to be joined by the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care Deb Matthews, to announce that Ontario is now the first jurisdiction in Canada to test every infant born in the province for Severe Combined Immune Deficiency (SCID) a deadly disorder previously known as “Bubble Boy Disease.” Newborn Screening Ontario (NSO), based at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO), now screens all babies born in the province for 29 disorders, including SCID. Undiagnosed, infants with SCID have a 100% mortality rate, usually before their first birthday. Infants who are treated before the onset of symptoms have an excellent prognosis. The expansion of the newborn screening program to include SCID is expected to save the lives of up to 10 babies each year in Ontario. This is the first time that screening can offer not only effective treatment, but a complete cure for a disease.

Howard Richmond makes court appearance in murder case Next court date set for September Joe Lofaro

Metro news

A Canadian soldier accused of first-degree murder in the death of his 28-yearold wife, Melissa Richmond, made a brief court appearance by video link Aug. 20 at the Ottawa courthouse. An unshaven Howard Richmond, 50, spoke briefly with his legal counsel before the court scheduled his next appearance for Sept. 27. Defence lawyer Joseph Addelman said he is awaiting more disclosure from the Crown attorney before he can submit a bail application for his client. Richmond’s body was found in a ravine in South Keys July 28 after her husband reported her missing four days earlier. A friend of the Winchester couple said they were married for eight years.

News - An Ottawa police sergeant was honoured for his efforts to reduce drinking and driving last week. Sgt. John Kiss received the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario’s 2012 Road Safety Professional Award at Ottawa city hall for his work to educate the public about impaired driving. “Sgt. Kiss has touched people’s lives through his continued public education efforts to reduce drinking and driving in Ottawa,” said Ottawa police Deputy Chief Jill Skinner. “We are proud that his contribution to the safety of our roads has been recognized with the 2012 Road Safety Professional Award.” Kiss has been the alcohol counter measures co-ordinator at Ottawa police since 2010. He has worked with Mothers Against Drunk Driving on Operation Red Nose. In December 2012, he worked with BOOM 99.7 to show the dangers of moderate drinking. Kiss also collaborated with MADD and the Ottawa Insurance Brokers Association to co-ordinate RIDE and Mega-RIDE programs involving several police agencies.

Lions return from nationals with record-setting time Brier Dodge

brier.dodge@metroland.com

Sports - Ottawa Lions youth runners have returned from the national championships with another medal haul – and a new national record. They almost didn’t set the record – achieved in the girl’s 4x400-metre relay – but Erin Stenman-Fahey overtook the first-place runner in the final leg to win the event by just hundredths of a second. It also gave the relay team – made up of the Alta Vista area’s Stenman-Fahey, Nepean’s Annie Dai, Kemptville’s Reilly Jones and Orléans’ Alexia Lamothe – a gold medal in their final event of the last race of the year. Stenman-Fahey had already won two silver medals, but didn’t have a gold medal to take home yet. Neither did teammates Jones, Dai and Lamothe, who had won a silver medal in the 4x100-metre relay with Lions runner Ali Chiarelli of Barrhaven. Kemptville’s Matt Bedard had added to the Lions’ silver medal haul, bringing home his own medal in the 300-me-

tre hurdles. “It was the last race of the season, so you just go all out,” Stenman-Fahey said. “I don’t think we expected to win.” Coach Sasha Cesaratto, who coaches Dai, Jones, Lamothe, Chiarelli and Bedard in the sprint and hurdles group, said it was the medal he wanted to bring home all year. They ran the race in 3:49:85, just ahead of the Laurel Creek Track Club from Kitchener, Ont. Dai, who ran the first leg, wasn’t nervous as they waited to see which team had taken the gold, and which the silver. She said she had faith in her teammate to catch the other Ontario club in the anchor leg. Laurel Creek came out on top by only a quarter of a second in the 4x100-metre battle with the Lions sprinters. With Chiarelli running with the three other sprinters, the relay team brought home silver medals. Stenman-Fahey picked up two silver medals, running 2:10:89 in the 800-metre individual race, and a personal

The youth championship is for runners under 18, and Stenman-Fahey was running against many competitors a year older than her. She trains with the middle distance runners at the Ottawa Lions club with coach Lorraine McKen-

zie Presley. Competitors like Dai, who is going into Grade 12 next year at Colonel By Secondary School, will move into the junior division for 20 years old and under. SURPRISE SILVER

Matt Bedard, a St. Michael

High School student, was aiming to run a personal best time in the 300-metre hurdles. But as he took a full second off his best time – 38.58 seconds – he found himself in second place with a silver medal. “I wasn’t really expecting a medal, then I ran a personal best,” he said. “My teammates

kind of lost their minds.” Bedard couldn’t see the final times, so he wasn’t sure why they were so excited until he saw his own time ranked against the other competitors. Cesaratto said the coaches were happy that he was running in the A final, for the top eight hurdlers after the preliminary round. “Things were progressing well (this season). We went to our provincial meet and he finished second there,” Cesaratto said. “Then he was in the lead until the second last hurdle.” Going into his Grade 12 year in September, the Kemptville athlete thinks he’s found his niche event for next year. “I think next season I’m going to focus on the hurdles,” he said with a laugh. Now on a six-week break, the athletes are on vacation, able to finally travel with their families. At the end of the day, they’re still kids. The highlight of the break is he gets to eat whatever he wants. “It’s my first time eating McDonalds in forever,” Bedard said.

Patience running thin for Plasco financing Committee gives waste-to-energy idea an extension – with strings attached Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

Laura Mueller/Metroland

Plasco CEO Rod Bryden takes questions from the media after the environment committee voted to give his company an extension to finance his waste-to-energy plant on Aug. 22. said. “Because the equity funds that support the company see a world market, not an Ottawa market.” The deadline extension will give those financers more confidence, he said. If Plasco doesn’t show the

city it has the proper financing in place by the new December 2014 deadline, it would automatically trigger a request for interest from companies that think they have a technology that could help Ottawa avoid filling up its Trail Road landfill

with residential garbage. At current rates, the landfill is expected to fill up by around 2035. While councillors mentioned Enerkem, a company that is working to turn garbage into See COUNCILLORS. page 22

R0012265334_0822

News - Plasco got an extension on a financing deadline for its garbage disposal plant on Aug. 22, but the environment committee indicated for the first time that its patience is starting to run out. “Time is money,” said Rideau-Goulbourn Coun. Scott Moffatt as he introduced a motion that will ensure the city starts looking at other possible ways to deal with residential garbage if Plasco Energy Group’s vision of a novel plasma-gasification facility doesn’t materialize on time. It was the second time Plasco CEO Rod Bryden had to ask the committee for an extension on one of the deadlines imposed in the contract he signed with the city. It’s not that investors aren’t interested in the project, which would be the first of its kind in the world, Bryden said. But it took about a year to get the contract wording worked out with city lawyers and the time left to get investors on board before the deadline was overly optimistic, he said. Bryden said he is confident the plant will be built because the firms financing it have deep pockets and a global view. “That’s one of the reasons why the funds necessary to complete Plasco’s development program and build the Ottawa plant will be available,” Bryden

Councillors support Plasco technology Continued from page 21

biofuel in Edmonton, city manager Kent Kirkpatrick cautioned that he is not aware of any technologies that would be commercially viable in Ottawa or compete with the deal the city has worked out with Plasco, since the municipality is in a good position with no financial risk by offering to become the first host for the plasma gasification plant. Kirkpatrick will send a memo outlining all the available alterna-

tives by the end of September for city councillors’ information. Still, committee chairwoman Maria McRae, councillor for River Ward, and other councillors expressed support for Plasco. “I know that we’re very anxious as a city to see Plasco proceed,” McRae said. The possibility of finding a new spot for a landfill in Ottawa is almost nil, she said, so the city has to do something. “Essentially I see this as the

‘patience is running out’ motion,” McRae said of Moffatt’s proposal. “We really want to support Plasco, but if we don’t see movement … (it’s) so we’re not lagging behind a year and a half from now.” That view set off a heated argument with Alta Vista Coun. Peter Hume, who argued it was ridiculous that the city would pursue another option for waste disposal when it has a “perfectly good” landfill with a couple decades of capacity left. The city should focus its efforts on

able to do it for municipal waste,” he said. “The city should stop wasting its time on this … I think it’s a fundamentally flawed dream.” The city cannot actively pursue other waste-disposal technologies while it’s tied into a contract with Plasco. The Ottawa facility is expected to cost around $200 million for Plasco to build. The company has invested $350 million towards developing the technology, Bryden said.

diversion to ensure that landfill asset lasts longer, Hume said. “I quite frankly don’t believe that pursuing alternative disposal tech is a productive exercise for council to undertake,” Hume said. Duncan Bury, a Champlain Park resident and former city waste manager who oversaw the introduction of blue-bin recycling in Ottawa, told the city it shouldn’t wait to look at other options. “People have been trying to crack this for some time and have not been

Two new BIXI stations bring bikes to U of O Stations at western edge of downtown removed to accomodate university stops News - Two new stations for the National Capital Commission’s selfservice bike network are now up and running at the University of Ottawa. Capital BIXI bikes are available for rental at stations located at the north and south ends of the university’s main campus: Waller Street near Hagen Hall and King Edward Avenue near the Minto Sports Complex. The university said this service will give students and staff an additional option for travel in and around the campus and downtown area. According to the university, cur-

rently more than 85 per cent of students and staff use bicycles and public transit as their main mode of transportation. The change comes at a cost, however, as stations on the west side of downtown at Arthur and Somerset West and Preston and Carling were removed to accommodate the new university stations. In total, there are 25 stations in the Ottawa-Gatineau area.

Groups came from as far as Durham Region and Brockville to participate. Mayor Jim Watson, several city councillors, MPP Yasir Naqvi and police Chief Charles Bordeleau all participated in the parade festivities. Councillors opted to spray spectators with water guns from the Ottawa Public Health float, while Bordeleau and Naqvi stayed on the ground handing out bracelets and candy to the thousands of people lining the parade route.

Looking bored never paid off when Mother was around

he day was dragging on too slowly to suit me. It was late summer and my Saturday chores had been done hours before. Neither of my best friends could come to play. I was bored beyond belief. I sat on the cement step surrounding the boards at the pump in the middle of the yard and curled dandelion stems just the way my sister Audrey had taught me. They were laid out before me like a pile of pale green pencils. From the same cement stoop, I had played jacks, but without someone to play with I soon tired of that, too. Then I braided long pieces of grass, another talent I learned from Audrey. I picked up stones around the pump with my toes, piling them neatly on the platform. Finally, I resorted to letting them plop down the well between the boards, listening to them drop in the well water below. It was a hot day for late summer. My three brothers had gone to the Bonnechere River for a swim and Audrey was visiting her friend Iva

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories on the next farm. There was nothing for me to do. I had dressed and undressed my dolls too often to count and even Sport, our old collie, wasn’t interested in fetching a stick I threw out from my perch on the platform. I thought of going into the house and telling Mother I was bored and there was nothing to do, but I knew from past experience what kind of a reply that would earn me. “Well, get the ball of string out of the cupboard and knit a dishcloth. That will keep you busy for a while.” I hated knitting dishcloths with a passion. I hated knitting with a passion. Once my sister started me on making a scarf of bright red wool and it didn’t take long to see that something was drastically

wrong when what I had knitted was turning into a complete circle. Audrey admitted there was a good possibility I would never be a knitter. I heard her say “hopeless” under her breath. Making dishcloths out of a ball of string that had come in pieces from Briscoe’s General Store was low on my list of fun things to do. For some reason, I was always able to manage to create what could pass for a dish rag, even though I hated every last stitch I made. Beads of sweat were on my nose and I looked over at the house with its blinds down and the kitchen door tightly closed. I knew it would be cooler inside than where I was sitting, but what was I going to do when I went in? The house would be as dark as Mother

I sighed all the way to the cupboard. I reached into the basket that always sat on the bottom shelf and took out the ball of string and the knitting needles sticking out of it. I got no sympathy from Mother as I headed for the kitchen door and the swing, with the string and the knit-

from Mother, who could, as Audrey would say, “read any one of us like a book.” “Nothing to do, eh?” I knew right away I was caught. Mother took her eyes off the beans long enough to nod her head towards the backto-the wall cupboard. That’s all it took was one nod. I let out a big sigh. In fact,

could make it to keep out the summer heat and I knew the Findlay Oval would be out. Mother had a talent for working when there was very little light. I pictured her sitting at the table stringing beans or peeling potatoes or doing some other kitchen chore that didn’t require open windows. I went to the swing in the grape arbour. It was cooler, but not much, and there sure wasn’t any fun in swinging by myself. I even thought about phoning my bitter rival Marguirite to come over. I was desperate, I knew, but not that desperate. The minutes ticked by as slow as molasses in January. Well, there was nothing to do but head for the kitchen door. Maybe Mother would raise the blinds and I could look through the new Eaton’s catalogue that had arrived in the mail that week or maybe draw with the bits of chalk mother kept in a Watkin’s Baking Powder tin on the floor in front of the back door that lead upstairs. It was a flat door, just a slab really, and a perfect spot to

Community-scale developments most sustainable, experts say Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - Sprawl is hurting cities and needs to be reined in, experts told a group of municipal officials gathered in Ottawa for a conference last week. Densifying cities and promoting infill development is the best way to build sustainable neighbourhoods, a panel of experts told officials gathered for the Association of Municipalities Ontario conference held downtown from Aug. 19 to 21. “Sprawl generate very shortterm benefits,” said Geoff Cape of Evergreen Bick Works, the first presenter. “The strategy of urban sprawl has failed. Infill becomes the big strategy moving forward.” That might not be music to the ears of all Ottawa residents. Infill has been a tough fit in many older neighbourhoods – so much so that

the city’s planning department is attempting to define how best to allow new homes that bring more residents into the urban area be built in a way that fits into the character of existing neighbourhoods. The first part of that effort – a zoning bylaw looking at front yards and parking – is still mired in an appeal to the Ontario Municipal Board. Cape said municipalities will need to have a strong role in encouraging appropriate infill development. “There is a certain responsibility on the supply side to supply the right stuff,” he said about the types of housing available. “The developer and the municipal side have to be involved to steer the consumer in the right direction.” See AMO, page 28

Panelists at municipal conference praise infill, eco districts

Steve Desroches Deputy Mayor Councillor, Gloucester-South Nepean FIFA RepResentAtIves touR CIty oF ottAwA I was honoured to welcome representatives from the Federation of the International Football Association (FIFA) and Soccer Canada President Peter Montopoli who recently toured various locations around the City of Ottawa in preparation for the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup. With Ottawa being an Official Host City for the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup, we will have the opportunity to welcome the athletes, spectators and media from across the country and around the world. It is an opportunity to showcase our beautiful capital city to the world while generating significant investment in our local economy. This will also help position Ottawa as an exceptional host of international sporting events and as a premiere tourist destination to the millions of viewers of the event worldwide. Hosting this major sporting event is directly in line with the City’s economic development strategy, which I helped develop with City Council and industry leaders. RoAd sAFety A pRIoRIty As ChIldRen RetuRn to sChool As children are now back to school, I would like to take this opportunity to remind motorists to be cautious, drive safe and follow the rules of the road, especially near school zones and school buses. With the added volume of children out in the community walking and cycling to school, please slow down when driving in your neighbourhood. Thank you for your cooperation.

Continued from page 27

Urban populations across the globe are expected to double over the next 40 to 50 years, Cape said. This period will be critical to determine which cities succeed and which will fail, he said. To get there, cities need to look at development on a small scale – at the community level, said Thomas Mueller, the second presenter. He spoke about the concept of eco districts and how they are models for how we can get closer to communities and homes that produce about as much energy as they consume. There are many things at play to get there, and the interplay be-

tween buildings, infrastructure and lifestyle can be designed more easily on the community scale, Mueller said. Jonathan Westeinde, managing partner of Ottawa-based Windmill Development Group, reiterated Mueller’s point. He said his company sees community-scale developments as the best way to make people live more sustainably. Windmill is currently building the Eddy condos and redeveloping Cathedral Hill in downtown Ottawa, and has set its sights on the daunting project of redeveloping the long-dormant Domtar site on the Chaudeire islands. Political openness to looking at novel types of infrastructure such as wastewater systems or

biomass generators is critical, Westiende said. It doesn’t have to start from a clean slate, Mueller said. Existing neighbourhoods can overhaul their sustainability by investing in infrastructure that reduces waste and by making communities more livable. Encouraging people to ditch their cars is one of the main goals that can be achieved by making communities more livable, Mueller said. And tall buildings don’t necessarily have to be a part of that, he said. “Density doesn’t mean you have to go very high,” he said. “Midscale density is done well in Europe.” Planning for sustainable and

livable communities in partnership with residents who already live there will yield a more robust result and ensure that the city’s goal of becoming more livable could actually be achieved, he said. “I think this is a very important aspect that’s often neglected,” he said. But the community has a responsibility, too. Residents have to take on a long-term commitment to continue to advocate for the goals and to support the resources they are given to make their neighbourhood more sustainable. “If people are engaged, everything can hit higher targets than anticipated,” Mueller said.

News - Clients needing hospice care across the region can now be connected with a health care practitioner with the touch of a button. The hospice fundraising organization OutCare Foundation announced that 12 palliative care sites in the Champlain region will now have access to the Ontario Telemedicine Network. The foundation showed off the new technology at the Hospice at May Court on Aug. 22 linking up to the Hospice Renfrew and the Beth Donovan Hospice for the event. “The increased expertise that we can now access enables our clients to remain at Hospice Renfrew while receiving the best care possible,” said Diane Caughey, executive director of Hospice Renfrew. “Staying in their community, close to friends and family, is incredibly important at this time in their lives.” The $380,000 worth of telecommunications equipment was purchased thanks to donations and fundraising effort from companies including Cisco Canada, the Ontario Trillium Foundation, the Champlain Local Health Integration Network, the Kiwanis Club of Ottawa and the Community Foundation of Ottawa, Canyon Foundation Fund, the Healing Cycle Foundation, the GlaxoSmithKline Foundation, the Military and Hospitaller Order of St. Lazarus of Jerusalem, Ottawa Commandery and individual donors. Telelink will use the latest technology to connect the palliative care sites to the Ontario Telemedicine Network’s secure videoconferencing network. Currently used by over 1,600

discuss complex issues and conduct clinical evaluations from a distance. They will also have the opportunity to train each other or hold conferences on such things as pain management without spending time and money on travel. Head of the palliative care at the Ottawa Hospital and Bruyère Continuing Care, Dr. José Pereira attended the event and said he is constantly amazed at the inroads technology has made to make patient care more and more effective. “This takes patient care to a new level,” Pereira said. “We have now been given this technology, let’s use it.” Pereira said this technology is so advanced, when he uses it he feels as though he is in the room with the patient. “You can actually hear the patient’s lungs breathing, as if they are right there with you,” he said. He added he is looking forward to seeing how much more this technology can improve how palliative care is approached in this region. According to the OutCare Foundation, more than 6,000 terminally-ill patients per year in Ottawa and Eastern Ontario will benefit from the new technology.

Chipotle meatloaf muffins put new twist on old classic Lifestyle - Cooking meatloaf in a muffin pan cuts the cooking time in half and serving it with mashed potatoes and green beans makes for comfort food with a bit of a kick. If you have leftovers, chop and place them in a tortilla with lettuce, cheese and a spoonful of salsa for a quick lunch. If desired, heat briefly in the microwave. Preparation time: 15 minutes. Cooking time: 21 to 31 minutes. Makes 12 muffins. Ingredients

Michelle Nash/Metroland

Tapped out Lane reductions and construction began starting on Aug. 19 on Coventry Road west of the Vanier Parkway as part of the city’s Orléans watermain link project. The project will create a secondary watermain to Orléans and parts of east Ottawa. Lane reductions on Montreal Road between highway 174 and Ogilvie Road began on Aug. 26 to complete the eastern portion of the link. This project will also see roads, sewers and other watermains reconstructed along the link. The second phase of the project will begin in the spring of 2014 on Ogilvie Road with the project to be completed by October 2014.

• 1 small onion, chopped • 1/2 a sweet yellow pepper, chopped • 10 ml (2 tsp) vegetable oil • 750 g (1-1/2 lb) extra-lean ground beef • 1 egg, lightly beaten • 300 ml (1-1/4 cups) mild or medium salsa (mild or medium) • 75 ml (1/3 cup) cornmeal • 25 ml (2 tbsp) pureed canned chipotle pepper with adobo sauce

• 1 ml (1/4 tsp) salt • pinch of pepper Preparation

In microwaveable bowl, combine the onion, yellow pepper and oil. Cover and microwave on high for 1 minute to slightly soften the mixture. In a large bowl, combine the meat, onion mixture, egg, 3/4 cup (175 mL) of the salsa, cornmeal, pureed chipotle, and salt and pepper.   Divide the meat mixture among 12 muffin cups, pressing down lightly. Spoon 10 ml (2 tsp) of the remaining salsa

on each muffin. Bake in a 180 C (350 F) oven for 20 to 30 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted in centre of each muffin reaches 71 C (160 F). Let the muffins stand for five minutes before removing them from the pan. For the chipotle, puree the entire can of peppers with adobo sauce until smooth. Transfer remainder to an airtight container and freeze to use later in chili, soup, barbecue sauce or with mayo for a spicy vegetable dip or sandwich spread. Foodland Ontario

Lightning-quick team riding to glory Emma Jackson

emma.jackson@metroland.com

Sports - A lifelong friendship is quickly turning into top 10 rankings, prize money and a whole lot of glory.

Fifteen-year-old Manotick teen Skyla Smith watched her pony Lightning McQueen come into this world five years ago and began working with him right away. Today, the two are a regular sight at fairs and horse shows across the region.

The pair competes in western riding games like barrel racing, pole bending, key hole, dash for cash and the flag race – and they’re getting recognized for their fast work. “People always come up to my dad and start talking about me and Didn’t get your

my pony,” Smith said. “He keeps saying I’m the talk of the fair.” And it’s no wonder. Lightning’s best event is pole bending, which he can do in 23 seconds, Smith said. Professionals at the Calgary Stampede do it in 21 – on horses. “It’s pretty good for a pony,” Smith said. “It takes him a lot more to get as fast as them.” Of course, Lightning’s competitive streak also helps. “He comes to win,” she laughed. “He’s just really competitive. I’ve never seen a pony love that game so much.” Smith’s own riding skills are in her blood. Her father, now 72, competed in barrel racing his whole life R0012233909

and used to run a trail riding stable, she said. At their home, Sundance Ranch, they still keep 17 horses that you can sometimes see in the pastures near St. Mark High School on Mitch Owens Road. Smith sat on her first horse when she was just two days old, and she was riding by herself by the time she was three. Today, the St. Mark student consistently places in the top 10 of her events at regional fairs, riding Lightning McQueen as well as another horse she acquired this summer named Pray For Me. At the South Mountain Fair over the Aug. 15 weekend, Smith came in fourth out of 20 riders. She also earned high points at the Russell and Pakenham fairs last year riding Lightning McQueen. This year, Smith hopes to come first in her events at the Metcalfe Fair, one of about 10 she has scheduled for this fall. And in the future, she said she wants a chance to take on the real cowboys. “I want to go to the Calgary stampede. That’s my dream.”

Smoking bans help employees butt out

BACK TO SCHOOL & 2013 FALL REGISTRATION Know symptoms of attention deficit disorder Let’s all unite to eradicate bullying Lifestyle - According to the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, at least one Canadian teenager out of three can tell stories about what it’s like to be a victim of bullying at school. Other Canadian studies show that bullying occurs every seven minutes in the playground and every 25 minutes in the classroom. Do these statistics shock you? Whether you’re a student, parent, or educator, you have a role to play in putting an end to bullying. TYPES OF BULLYING

Don’t jump to conclusions if your child seems hyperactive. forms testing, takes into account parents’ observations, and gathers information from teachers and other adults in the child’s life.

D E D N EXTE

A specialized treatment and educational plan are established as soon as ADHD has been diagnosed.

There are in fact four principal types of bullying, and being able to identify them is a first step in the fight to eradicate this scourge. Verbal bullying includes insults, sarcasms, teasing, the spreading of rumours, threats, inappropriate sexual comments, and slurs about culture, race, religion, gender, or sexual-orientation. Social bullying includes group threats, making a scapegoat of someone, exclusion, public humiliation, and demeaning graffiti. Physical bullying includes hitting, pushing, pinching, hounding, jostling, stealing or destroying possessions, and sexual touching of an undesirable nature. Cyberbullying includes using the Internet or text messaging to bully, humiliate, make fun of, or circulate rumours about someone. Are you, or one of your friends, a victim of bullying? Is your child a victim, or perhaps even the bully? Several resources are available to you, including Kids Help Phone at 1-800-668-6868 or www.kidshelpphone. ca.

Lifestyle - Only specialists can diagnose attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, commonly known as ADHD. Before any kind of diagnosis, a specialist, such as a psychiatrist, neurologist or pediatrician must first ensure that the hyperactivity is not a manifestation of trauma or any other type of disturbance. If parents suspect that a child has ADHD, they should be very careful about jumping to conclusions. Children suffering from ADHD can present different symptoms of inattention, hyperactivity or impulsiveness. • Inattention: children cannot stay focused on what they are doing; they are easily distracted, don’t seem to listen, have difficulty getting themselves organi­zed, often lose items and do not follow instructions. • Hyperactivity: children have difficulty sitting still and move constantly, talk a lot, run or climb at inopportune moments and are incapable of playing quietly. • Impulsiveness: children interrupt others, have difficulty waiting their turn and tend to touch everything. Certainly, all children demonstrate one or another of these types of behaviour when they are tired or excited. However children suffering from ADHD will exhibit several of these symptoms in an ongoing and excessive manner, at home, at school or during extracurricular activities. To reach a diagnosis, the doctor per-

Lifestyle - Having to move house can be a major source of stress for children. When a change of school is also involved, the emotional impact can be huge. Children need the support of their par-

change. The stress of a transition might manifest itself as sudden mood swings, nightmares, or minor physical discomfort. Even insomnia can make an appearance.

To prevent some of these reactions, parents have everything to gain by preparing their children for a move. The best kind of start is to put all your cards on the table and explain frankly to children why they have to move and what it will involve. After this, parents must listen carefully as they give children time to verbalize their worries. It is

important that children feel comfortable expressing what they are feeling. For the transition to go smoothly, it is essential that parents supply points of reference for their children. Taking the time to visit new classrooms, meet the teachers, and see other students will help them develop more confidence. On the way home,

a conversation about the positive aspects of the visit will help other fears to dissipate. Of course, parents should not expect that all their children’s misgivings will disappear like magic. But by being calm and patient, parents can make their children feel secure enough that the transition to a new school and neighbourhood can go smoothly.

If you are looking for affordable, flexible meeting options or sporting venues, the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board has plenty of choices. Available after 6 p.m. weeknights and on Saturdays throughout the school year, our schools offer classrooms, auditoriums, gymnasiums, meeting rooms, and cafeterias. Rates are reasonable and parking is free. For further information visit, www.ocdsb.ca or contact the Community Use of Schools Office at 613-596-8260 or by e-mail at communityuse@ocdsb.ca.

When numbers turn into a nightmare Lifestyle - Sarah doesn’t like math. She has difficulty reading and writing numbers, she can’t remember her multiplication tables, and the simplest calculation discou­rages her. When she’s asked to solve a problem, the task is laborious and she feels stupid. Sarah may suffer from a math disability: dyscalculia, or numlexia. Dyscalculia is to numbers what dyslexia is to letters.

The number 243 can turn into 200403 inside the heads of children with dyscalculia. They use their fingers when asked to count, and addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division are incomprehensible. There are several outward signs of this learning disability, but they have nothing to do with intellectual disability or sensory disorders. Before diagnosing dyscalculia, health professionals elimi-

nate other hypotheses, such as problems with vision, hearing, or the consequences of brain trauma, for example. A neuropsychological examination is then conducted in order to assess intellectual quotient, concentration, memory and language. These procedures may seem to take a long time, but they are vital in order to avoid making a premature diagnosis, which could point doctors in the

Lifestyle - Watching children leave home for their very first day of school is always an emotional time for parents. After a last goodbye, many mums and dads will spill tears of joy and pride, but sometimes those tears can be caused by anguish and worry. Leaving children in the hands of strangers is never easy. Parents must prepare themselves in advance so they can keep their composure during this big day in the lives of their children. It is helpful to establish the new routine several days before school starts. Set the alarm clock to wake up at a reasonable hour and take the time to eat breakfast with your children. Practise taking the route to school. In other words, if you get your children used to the new routine, you will probably feel reassured as well. I the last days before school starts, and after offering all the support you can give to your children, give yourself some time to catch your breath. You deserve a break after all the back-to-school rushing around. Relax in a candle-lit bubble bath, go for a walk or distract yourself with a good book. Acknowledge your feelings without any judgment, and just try to enjoy yourself. It is OK to feel nervous, but do try to

This would be upsetting to your children. Little boys and girls are very perceptive. By showing that they are in control of the situation, parents will help their chil-

dren feel safe and self-confident. The first day of school is certainly a very special time, but it is a normal step in the life of any child. So relax, keep smiling, and above all, be positive.

Arcan is smaller, with approximately 30 students in each class that range in age from 6 to 30 years old. “We like it better that way, it’s more personal,” Alana said. Diego has been practicing Taekwondo since he was six years old. He hails from Argentina, where he says Taekwondo studios are a dime a dozen. “It’s common to find a place every few blocks,” he said. Support for the sport in Canada is a little lacking, Diego and Alana said, adding they have to pay out of pocket for their travel expenses both to compete and to train with the other Team Canada members. “It’s worth it, because it’s something we love,” Alana said.

Sports - Three local Taekwondo instructors are set to take on the world. Arcan TKD, which operates out of St. Gregory Catholic School during the school year and out of the Pinecrest Recreation Complex in the summer, will be sending their two founding members and an assistant instructor to the World Junior & Senior Taekwondo ITF Championships in Benidorm, Spain from Oct. 23 to 27. Alana and Diego Cabanas are both fourth degree black belts. Alana has been competing nationally and internationally in the sport since she was 17. She met husband Diego when he coached team Canada at the world’s competition in Russia in 2009. This year the two will be teammates, along with assistant instructor Miro Mostovac. Mostovac is a second degree black belt and will compete in the middle weight for males 18 to 34. When he isn’t training he serves as a member of the army reserves. “It’s nice to see one of our students enjoying success,” Alana said. “It’s kind of like coming full circle.” Alana has competed in the worlds four times. She was in Poland in 2003, Germany in 2005 and Russia in 2009. The RCMP officer opened her first Taekwondo school when she was stationed in Alberta. She said she boasted some 200 students.

SkyHawks bringing local players home Two east-end players part of basketball roster Brier Dodge

brier.dodge@metroland.com

News - Eric Kibi and Manock Lual are excited to be coming back home. At an Aug. 21 news conference at city hall, as the pair were taking photos with one another in SkyHawks hats, Lual was quick to remind Kibi send him copies. The east-end Ottawa players were both picked up in the Aug. 17 and 18 National Basketball League draft by Ottawa’s new basketball team, along with four other Ontario players. “We’re very excited to have these guys up here in Canada,” said team owner Gus Takkale. “We’re bringing top notch Canadians back to Canadian soil.” Lual, who attended Rideau High School, was the team’s second draft pick. He played locally for the Ottawa Pheonix. He then played for the University of Prince Edward Island and eventually professional ball with Medway Park, a team in Britain. “I’m very excited to play in front of my friends, family and city,” he said. “Hopefully I can give you guys something to be proud of as well.”Kibi attended St. Matthew High School before transferring to an American prep school and went on to play for the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. “It’s kind of a dream come true,” he said. “Three, four years ago, we never saw this coming.” The team also selected Toronto players Tristan Blackwood, Jerome Brown and Alex

“Every coach, every GM had his eyes on him,” Takkale said. “He was the best player by far. So we went to go see him at a community club by his house.”It’s been a whirlwind week for Johnson, who found himself signed with the Ottawa team only days after the draft. “I kind of just ran with it,” he said. It’s the first time a Canadian player has been selected as the first overall pick in the NBL draft – mirroring the 2013 National Basketball Association draft, which saw Canadian Anthony Bennett selected first overall. Takkale said it was important for the team to keep things as local as possible and draft Canadian players. The SkyHawks have partnered the Eastern Ontario Basketball Association and plan to form a scholarship fund for local players. “(Kibi and Lual) have high character and I’m sure they’ll be doing a lot of work around here,” he said. Sam and Callum Russell, ages 10 and 8, who are season ticket holders, came out to watch the press conference in their Gloucester Wolverines Brier Dodge/Metroland t-shirt. They play for the local basketball club Rideau High School graduate Manock Lual, left, and St. Matthew High School alumnus house league teams, and Sam said it was excitEric Kibi and are both returning home to play basketball with the Ottawa SkyHawks. ing to see Kibi, who played for the Wolverines Kibi and Lual are two of the six Ontario players the SkyHawks drafted the Aug. 17 and 18 as a youth, playing professional basketball.

Ping pong tourney bounces back to help four charities

Michelle Nash

News - The battle of the paddles is back for another swing at helping four local charities this September. The fourth annual Verdun Windows and Doors Ottawa Charity Ping Pong Tournament will take place in the ByWard Market on Sept. 27. The event welcomes table tennis enthusiasts, serious players and curious spectators to enjoy a bit of ping pong to help Do it for Daron, Youth Services Bureau, Operation Come Home and Christie Lake Kids. This year, tournament commissioner Michael Kirkpatrick said the organization would like to raise $30,000. “We set the bar high, but we think we can do it,” he said. “The ping pong revolution is catching on in Ottawa. If you like socializing, like having a fun time then the Ottawa Charity Ping Pong is for you. The ping pong tournament is really a distraction between the raising money for charity, socializing and having a good time.”

Last year the fundraiser brought in $26,000 for the charities. The event is meant to be fun for everyone, from high skilled players to those playing for the first time. Kirkpatrick said the tournament also serves as a costume party: last year players were encouraged to arrive in their tennis whites. “That added to the fun last year, everyone really took it to a whole new level, with all sorts of costumes,” he said. A paddle contest is also underway to create an official ping pong paddle for the tournament. Kirkpatrick said the organization wanted to add a way for more people to participate in the event, so they came up with the paddle design contest. “It’s one of the fun things we are doing with the event, letting people draw an image onto a paddle,” he said. The contest welcomes anyone to create a design for a table tennis paddle. The winning design will be printed by PaddleYou, an online table tennis paddle design company, on official tournament paddles and handed out to contestants at the competition, as well as be handed out as some door prizes at the event. The winning artist will receive two free tickets to the event. All designs must be submitted by the end of August, with the winner an-

Paige

Chief #A159280

Meet PAIGE. Paige is a very sweet four-year-old, spayed female, brown tabby domestic shorthair cat who came to the shelter as a stray on May 23 and is now ready to find her furr-ever home!

Paige is an independent cat that appreciates her space. She likes to lounge in the cat trees at the shelter and is hoping that she can go home to her very own kitty climber one day.

She is looking for a family that appreciates that she likes to do her own thing; she’d like to be reminded now and then that she’s loved with an ear scratch or a cuddle. Meet ChIEf, a seven-year-old, neutered male, American foxhound who was brought to the Ottawa Humane Society as a stray on Aug. 3. He’s now available for adoption. Like a typical hound, he likes to get to know his environment by smelling around. He’s a social boy with an independent side, he loves to meet new people, but is content with taking a nap alone on his dog bed. Chief would rather not be a couch potato. He’s not ready to slow down anytime soon, so he will need adequate physical and mental stimulation to keep his body and mind healthy! Chief would love the opportunity to participate in obedience classes to learn all his commands.

Tucker is an adorable and personable 9-yearold rescue pet, who came into our lives two years ago. He’s extremely social and is wellknown on Preston St, especially at Starbucks, Simply Biscotti and Bridgehead. For a “mature” dog he’s got tons of energy and his one goal in life is to keep the neighbourhood free from squirrels, rabbits and birds (so far totally unsuccessful). He’s very affectionate and will lay beside you (or on you) when you’re on the couch or in bed

our Iams Wiggle Waggle Walkathon simply because you love animals and the great work that the OHS does in our community.

We also have the 3K Companion Animal Run so that runners can Run for the Animals with their favourite fourlegged friend. Visit our website for more information at www.ottawahumane.ca.

Our 25th anniversary Wiggle Waggle Walkathon is so much more than just a dog walk. The original organizers of the walkathon in 1988 would be amazed at how the event has grown from a much smaller event where OHS supporters would walk their dogs to raise much needed money for the OHS. Fast forward 25 years and the Iams Wiggle Waggle Walkathon has grown tremendously! There are more walkers and more money raised for the animals at the OHS every year. Our goal this year? To raise $185,000 for the animals in the care of the OHS.

and wristband to boot. Ottawa local musician Rory Gardiner and a DJ will offer up the musical entertainment for the tournament. The tournament begins at 7 p.m. at the SpinBin, 310 Dalhousie St. More information about the tournament and the charities the event is supporting is available at ottawacharitypingpong.com.

The Clemow Avenue Driveway (1903) was designed as a wide boulevard, with rows of trees and large houses set well back from the street. It extended west from the Queen Elizabeth Driveway near the Canal to Bronson Avenue and Dow’s Lake. Guide: Andrew Elliott, writer, archivist and architectural historian.
