Featuring Stress-free holiday hosting tips
atherings with friends and family are a big part of the holiday season. Many people travel during the holidays to spend time with distant relatives, but those same people often want to gather with those loved ones who live nearby as well. Thus an abundance of gatherings comes in December, when office parties, dinners with family and festivities with friends have a way of dominating the last five weeks of the year. All of those gatherings translate to a lot of holiday hosting, and hosts can easily feel overwhelmed as they try to juggle hosting duties with everything else that comes along during this time of year. Dining out can help relieve some of the holiday stress. Dining out has many advantages, including no cleanup once the meal is over and a more varied menu that provides guests more choices than the standard holiday fare. Dining out can also prove less expensive for the holiday host. The tab at the end of a night on
the town can be split among the guests, whereas the food bill when hosting a holiday dinner at home is often left to the host and the host alone. • Call around. A favorite restaurant might be tops on your list, but do some comparison shopping before settling on a restaurant. Prices can vary greatly when it comes to private parties, and some might not even be capable of accommodating the kind of large party that might accompany you for a holiday dinner. • Pick a restaurant that’s accessible to everyone. Guests can stay overnight when a holiday dinner is at a relative’s house. However, guests will almost certainly be driving home after a holiday dinner at a restaurant. Make everyone’s postmeal commute home as easy as possible by choosing a centrally located restaurant that’s equidistant from everyone’s home. • Is the restaurant’s pricing flexibile. There might be room for negotiation regarding the menu, including choices on the
food and beverages being offered, but you’ll never know if you don’t ask. Traditional holiday fare will likely be available, but discuss alternatives to such menu items, including if there is anything for vegetarians or if there is a gluten-free meal option. In addition, some restaurants might be willing to negotiate price, especially for large
parties. • Don’t forget invitations. Treat the holiday dinner like you might treat a wedding reception or a birthday party. Include directions to the restaurant in your invitations, and remind guests that holiday traffic might require they leave earlier to make it to the restaurant on time for the start of the meal.

The MessengerNEWS Businesses gutted by Victoria Day weekend fire will not reopen
Three businesses that were gutted by an electrical fire on Victoria Day say they are unable to reopen. V’s Cupcakes, the Manotick Village Butcher and Tops Pizza have announced that they cannot reopen, saying that their insurance did not cover the total cost of the damages caused in the May fire. The estimated damages in the fire in the Village Square building at 5556 Manotick Main Street were $1 million. A fourth business that was located in the building, Tetra Tech, will not be returning to the village. The engineering consulting firm has had its employees working from home since the fire, and it will be relocating to an office closer to the airport. V’s Cupcakes owner Veronick Ayling had planned to reopen her business in the former RBC Royal Bank building on Manotick Main Street. Ayling, who has been very public about her battle with Lyme’s Disease, had planned a fundraiser for Lyme Disease sufferers in late May. She has decided not to reopen. “This has been the most difficult decision I’ve ever made,” she wrote on her website. “I know many of you have been patiently
waiting through the delays to once again savour our treats. Although I know I’m letting you all down, in the end I must now do what is best for V – something I’m not accustomed to. “I want to thank you all – the community, our staff, our loyal customers and friends – for supporting V’s Cupcakes over the past three years. You made my dream a reality and have given me so many fond memories and new friendships. I feel so honoured to have been a part of your special celebrations and to provide our nut-free treats for your families. “I also want to thank those of you who graciously donated towards reopening V’s Cupcakes. All the funds that were raised will now go directly to Lyme Ontario and to Lyme Disease sufferers. V’s Cupcakes has been a challenging, gratifying and sweet journey. I am looking forward to seeing where life will take me next.” Tops Pizza owner Khoder El-Didi was blindsided when he found out his business was underinsured back in May. “We were expecting to get about $185,000 in our insurance claim,” he said. “That would cover the cost
of replacing the equipment we need to get up and running again. Instead, the insurance company only sent us about $65,000. It totally took us by surprise. I don’t know what we’re going to do.” El-Didi told the Messenger in June that he bought fire coverage with his insurance package when he purchased Tops Pizza. He said the insurance company sent an inspector to itemize his equipment and to estimate its worth. He said he was repeatedly reassured that he had V’s Cupcakes was one of four businesses destroyed by a fire to the Village Square building JEFF MORRIS PHOTO enough coverage to re- in Manotick in May. place his equipment and The Manotick Village ventory but only $10,000 build a three-storey buildrebuild in case of a fire or Butcher had been open for in insurance to cover it.

Visitors join local residents to celebrate Women’s Day in Manotick The 10th Annual Manotick Women’s Day was the biggest and best to date. The event, which took place Saturday, saw a record number of businesses participating, and a record number of shoppers in the village. “For our 10th annual event, this has been better than we could have imagined,” said Manotick BIA Executive Director Donna Smith. Manotick businesses had special events and sales within their stores. Many offered giveaways and samples as part of the day. Members of the Manotick Fire Department were on hand throughout the village, giving special Canada 150 tree ornaments to
the first 1,000 visitors to the village. Musicians and entertainers performed on the sidewalks of Manotick Main Street and in the Manotick Mews. And most of all, the weather was extremely cooperative. “We had a great mix of women from Manotick and from around the area who attended the event,” Smith said. “We had a lot of people from Barrhaven and Riverside South, as well as neighbouring communities.” Many of the women who attended the event in groups brought friends from out of town. Several from the Toronto and Montreal areas came to the village to attend the
event with friends who live locally. “It’s a great event to kick off the holiday shopping season,” said Smith. “It’s also a chance for our businesses to put their best foot forward and showcase what we have to offer in Manotick.” Smith said that the primary objective of the event was to showcase the goods and services at local businesses in an effort to bring shoppers back to do their holiday shopping. “It was the fourth of five major events hosted by the Manotick BIA this year. The next will be in the first weekend of December, when Manotick hosts its annual Olde Fashioned Christmas.

December ARAC meeting moved to Thurs., Nov. 23 at Ben Franklin Place Normally, the Agriculture & Rural Affairs Committee meets on the first Thursday of each month, except for January and August. However, the December meeting has been moved up to Thursday, November 23rd due to the 2018 Budget timeline. The meeting will still be held at 10:00am at Ben Franklin Place and will contain regular agenda items in addition to the draft budget for ARAC. Due to the timing, my Messenger column will not feature the agenda in detail but we will send out the agenda via our eNewsletter. In my last column, I hinted at an upcoming open house at Orchard View on the Rideau to discuss the Clapp property and the proposed retirement residence on that site. Some minor changes have been made to what we saw previously and the new owner is interested in showing the community and also introducing themselves. However, due to some scheduling difficulties, this open house will most likely occur in January. Stay tuned to this column and our website for those details.
Green Light Program
Through a new signage campaign across rural Ottawa, the City is making an effort to remind motorists that vehicles with green flashing lights are being driven by volunteer firefighters who are re-

sponding to a call. As a courtesy, all road users are asked to allow these vehicles to pass quickly and safely. Ottawa’s rural communities are served by 470 volunteer firefighters. Through the Green Light program, volunteer firefighters are equipped with green flashing lights for their personal vehicles. When you see a green light flashing from a driver’s vehicle, it means the driver is a volunteer firefighter responding to an emergency. Drivers are asked, to please yield the road to these vehicles with green flashing lights. This may mean pulling over, if it is safe to do so, to allow the vehicle to pass. Volunteer firefighters responding to an emergency typically need to drive their personal vehicles to a nearby fire station where they can transfer into a fire vehicle before responding to the scene of an incident. Pulling over when you see a firefighter’s green light can have a big impact because every second counts. Volunteer firefighters are also expected to follow the same rules of the road as all other drivers. The Highway Traffic Act allows volunteer firefighters to display a flashing green light when responding to emer-

gencies. The use of the flashing green light on or in vehicles is restricted to fire services. To increase awareness of the Green Light program, the City launched an awareness campaign recently. Drivers in rural areas may notice additional road signs and billboards reminding them of the program. This program has existed in rural Ottawa for several years and similar programs exist across North America in communities that are served by volunteer firefighters.
ReCollect Calendar App
The City of Ottawa is pleased to launch the ReCollect Collection Calendar app, in collaboration with the Service Innovation and Performance Department. The online ReCollect calendar has been in use since September 2012 and provides residents with a reminder of their collection day and the type of material scheduled for collection. The new mobile app is now available free of charge through Apple and Android stores. By downloading the collection calendar app, residents will be able to receive notifications about their collection and quickly reference their collection calendar on their Apple and Android devices. ReCollect apps are used by over 100 municipalities across North
America. Each of these mobile apps is unique to the municipality (name, artwork, content, etc.), and has been very well received by residents. In addition to weekly calendar reminders, customized waste diversion messages can also be incorporated into the app. In addition to the ReCollect app residents can access the ReCollect calendar on Ottawa.ca. They can download and print the collection calendar, upload it to personal calendars or sign up for email, telephone or Twitter notifications.

Public Meeting on next phase of Mahogany Development, November 28, 7 – 9 p.m Come and have your say on the next phase of the Mahogany development at a public meeting at the RVCA building, 3889 Rideau Valley Drive. This is an opportunity for local residents to provide input on Phase 2-4 of the development, to be built west of the current homes. The Minto proposal is based on community input received last spring and outlines the plan for the construction of an additional 930 homes with single detached units (35) bordering homes along Potter Drive, higher density housing of two-storey townhomes and bungalows (192) along Century Road and medium density single detached housing (703) in between. It also outlines the proposed street and path networks, including two connections to Century Road, as well as the location of a number of parks and a site for a school. The existing woodlot and creek system will be protected under the proposed plan. The proposal also outlines traffic considerations along with a proposed traffic light at Bridgeport and Main Street.

New path along Mahogany Creek open
The Village got a new walking path with the completion of the work on the pathway through Mahogay. A paved pathway now extends from Potter Drive to Century Road and is lined with new plants. In addition to paving the path, the work included the rehabilitation of the fish habitat as well as improvements to the drainage system. Final tree plantings are slated for 2018. It is a nice addition to the neighbourhood and a wonderful connection between Mahogany and the Village core.

Rising from the emotional ashes of World War II Too rarely do we thank our parents – or for that matter, the whole generation that included our parents. The Canadian baby boomers’ upbringing was strange alchemy: part Cold War paranoia, part unbridled optimism, and a mess of traditional and emerging values all brewed in one cauldron. Blame our parents. Thank our parents. We were moulded by the hands, minds and demons of those who survived the Second World War, a time of devastating upheaval. Their perspectives on life were first formed during the Great Depression, then cast in the forge of war. In all, 1.1 million Canadian men and women served in the war effort from 1939 to 1945. Of those who returned (and 45,000 did not), many were wounded, physically and emotionally.

The MessengerJUST FOR FUN
FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2017 Page 7 MANOTICK MESSENGER
ARIES Mar 21/Apr 20
Aries, it may be challenging to express your true feelings, especially when you fear what others may think. Just do what feels comfortable to you.
Apr 21/May 21 Take a sentimental journey with a loved one, Taurus. You never know what examining your emotions will uncover, and you will get to spend quality time together.
GEMINI May 22/Jun 21
Gemini, you can strike up a conversation with just about anyone this week. Your gift for gab makes you a fun person to have around and a welcome member to any new group.
CANCER Jun 22/Jul 22
Cancer, someone may catch you off guard this week and you don’t have your go-to plan in place. Worry not, as you will rebound quickly and bounce back in a big way.
LEO Jul 23/Aug 23
Leo, it may seem like everyone is hanging on every word you say this week. Don’t worry about performing, just continue to do what gravitates people toward you.
VIRGO Aug 24/Sept 22
Virgo, although you’re not a big fan of the spotlight, this week you will be asked to handle a situation on center stage. You just may enjoy the situation, so don’t fret about it.
HOW TO PLAY Fill in the grid so that every row, every column and every 3x3 box contains the numbers 1 through 9 only once. Each 3x3 box is outlined with a darker line. You already have a few numbers to get you started. Remember: You must not repeat the numbers 1 through 9 in the same line, column or 3x3 box.
Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, share your long-term goals with colleagues and you may find some unexpected allies. Support can only help your efforts even further.
SCORPIO Oct 24/Nov 22
Scorpio, set personal feelings aside when dealing with professional matters. Allowing emotion to get in the way of your goals will only end up affecting you.
SAGITTARIUS Nov 23/Dec 21
Sagittarius, this is a great time to try something new. Whether it’s a new food or a new experience you’ve been looking to try, dive right in and enjoy the excitement.
Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, expect to be excited by a budding relationship in the weeks ahead. Open up to friends or family members so you can share this positive development with loved ones.
Jan 21/Feb 18 Waiting patiently this week will not get the job done, Aquarius. You may have to be more assertive to get things done. Others will understand and prove helpful..
Feb 19/Mar 20 Pisces, a problem at work seems tough to crack. Take your time and try a new approach, and you will be happy with the results.

Every year on Remembrance Day, We Will Remember Them
I am not a war monger or promoter in any way, but Remembrance Day moves me every time, not just at the 11th hour on the 11 and the two-minute silence but the whole day. But this year, I am disturbed by current trends, in Canada, and certainly among our southern neighbours, that represent a level of intolerance, injustice, hatred and racism that are un-Canadian. My father worked in a munitions factory in Montreal during the First World War as his health would not allow him to join the armed forces. My brother was in the Royal Canadian Air Force for thirty-five years; my brother-inlaw was also in the RCAF for about the same time;AD!!!!!!!!!!!!_Diversitea my aunt was in LATEST Ad the Canadian Womens Army Corps for four

THIS MONTH by Larry Ellis years; I was in the Army Cadets in Maxville during the last year of the war. My point is; my family connections of those that served is little different from many families. They did their duty, they did it well - in the interest of freedom. Freedom for the people of this country- all the people of this countryand beyond. It wasn’t heroic, it wasn’t romantic, it was hell on earth. This is the month we remember- the good, the bad, and the ugly of war. The greatest com5/5/17 4:53 PM was Pageto 1 love mandment one’s neighbour. This Golden Rule, or a ver-

The MessengerFOCUS ON YOUTH OTHS student-athlete is a natural leader with a love for people
Name: Talihah Ortiz Age: 16
Address: Greely School: Osgoode Township High Grade: 12 Parents: Lana Ortiz (Mom), Phil Ortiz (Step Dad) Brother: Zach Ortiz, grade 7 at Castor Valley Pets: “Two cats, and a Boston Terrier (the love of my life)” Pet Peeve: “When people talk on the phone while they are going through my cash at work.” Part-time Work: “I’ve been a cashier at Mackinnon’s Foodland for about six months.” Favourite Subjects: Biology, intro to Anthropology (includes anthro, sociology, and psychology) What do you enjoy reading for pleasure? “The news.” Who is your favourite author? “Rupi Kaur, au-

thor of Milk and Honey.” Accomplishments: “Some of my accomplishments include being involved in leadership activities within the school, such as being a Skillbuilder for our school’s Leadership Camp for the second time this year. I also had the opportunity to attend board wide Leadership Camp in September along with 3 other OTHS students. It was a lot of fun, and a great learning experience. Last year I was Osgoode Townships Student Senator and participated in Student Council. I really enjoyed my role and experience working with the board and the other Student Senators. Academic wise, I received the Double Award in grade 10. My average was 0.3% away from 80+ last year. I’m aiming to get it again this year. I am also involved in ICP (International Certificate Program). It’s a
program run by OCDSB that allows students to become global citizens, travel and learn a new language. I just started it this year as a challenge for myself. I think I’m going to learn Spanish.” Activities/Interests: “I participate in Relay For Life every year. It’s fun to fundraise, especially for such a good cause (Canadian Cancer Society), and the event itself is a blast. I’ve been playing soccer and futsal since I was about 11. I was on the school team in grade 10, and I was on the Girls’ Varsity Rugby Team in grade 11. This year I plan to try out for the Soccer Team again in the spring, as I prefer it over rugby. I wish I could play both, but they both run in the same season. During the winter I love to go skiing and snowboarding as much as I can. Some people find the winters depressing, but I love winter activities.” (Futsal is a mini form of football. Usually played indoors on a hard court.) Why did you get involved in what you do? “I love people, which is probably why I enjoy leadership activities and

playing on team sports. I really enjoy working with other people to achieve a goal. For example, in senate we set goals, and discussed solutions for issues within our schools. I really thrive in that kind of environment. I remember telling my parents that I was
really in my element at board wide Leadership Camp as well.” Career Goals: “After high school I plan on going to university for International Development Studies, which focuses on poverty, environment, epidemics,
why some countries develop and some don’t, gender studies, and much more. It’s a very interdisciplinary program which is perfect for me, because I’m not 100% sure what career I want – probably something to do with law or the non-profit sector.”

PHARMACY Q: Is it a cold or is it the flu? A: Both the common cold and influenza are viruses but they have different symptoms and treatments. A cold typically comes on over a couple of days with a stuffy nose, cough, sneezing and sore throat. On the other hand, the Paul Brooks flu usually sets in within hours with Pharmacist fever, chills, body aches, fatigue and exhaustion. It is important to stay hydrated and get plenty of rest to fight the infection. As well, wash hands frequently and cough into elbows to prevent the spreading the virus to others. There are many overthe-counter products help feel better as your body heals so ask a pharmacist to select the best option for you.

LEgAL SERVICES Q: This past weekend, I signed up to buy a home from a builder, who has given me a bunch of paperwork and forms for me to review. What should I do? A: Congratulations on entering the world of home ownership. Quickly get to a lawyer who will help you review the agreement and other paperwork and Michelle Perry explain to you what you have committed B.A.,LL.B. to. If you have signed the agreement and the builder has allowed you to make it conditional on lawyer approval, the need for early input from a lawyer is clear. Regardless, in order to close the deal there is work that your lawyer will need to attend to. Why not get to them early in the process? In addition, your lawyer can review the role of the Ontario New Home Warranty Program in protecting your interests. Most of all, they can explain to you all of the ins and outs of the home purchasing process to help make moving day a painless (and even enjoyable) experience!

Xylitol can be found in D.V.M. sugar-free gum, candies, baked goods, cough syrup, chewable vitamins, toothpaste, some peanut-butters and many other products. Signs of Xylitol poisoning may include, weakness, vomiting, depression, tremors, other. Exposure seems to be on the rise due to increased use in products. Please keep these products away your dog and check with your veterinary team if you have any concerns.

PRINTINg SERVICES Q: What do I need to supply to get a print job done?
Q: Periodontal Disease - I have what? A: Periodontal Disease is an infection of the gums, ligaments and jaw bone caused by the bacteria in plaque; it is the most common cause of tooth loss in adults. There are several stages to periodontal disease, it is important to take note of some of the symptoms. The first stage, commonly referred to as “Gingivitis” may include – red, swollen, puffy gums, bleeding with brushing/flossing and in some cases bad breath or a bad taste in your mouth. Should this stage progress, it is most commonly referred to as “Periodontitis”. Symptoms are more severe in this advanced stage and include: loose gums and teeth, gum recession and a change in the position of your teeth. If detected early periodontal disease can be easily treated. Maintaining a good oral hygiene routine followed by regular dental visits can help keep your bacterial counts low and your gums pink and healthy for years to come! DR. CHEVREUL HARRIS DR.

Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind looking for volunteer puppy raisers Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind is seeking volunteer puppy raisers in Ottawa and Eastern Ontario. This is a long-term volunteer commitment of twelve to eighteen months. The volunteer raises the puppy in their home, teaching basic obedience and socialization. However, the unique part of this volunteer position is taking the puppy nearly everywhere you go. Support is provided from professional staff from Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind. You’ll need to be able to spend most of the day with the puppy, not leaving it alone for more than a couple of hours at a time. These pups are raised with the intention of being with someone 24/7 as a working guide dog. Pups are placed into homes at approximately eight weeks of age, so you will be housebound for a short time. Once the puppy’s vaccinations are in place, around four months of age, you will be asked to take the puppy anywhere you go and introduce it to as many environments and situations as possible, that it may later
encounter as a guide dog. If you work outside of the hoame, you would start with a sixteenweek old puppy, so that vaccinations are in place and you can take the puppy to work and public areas immediately. You are expected to take the pup for daily long walks in all weather conditions, so an active lifestyle is preferred. This is a unique volunteer opportunity, and you could help play a role in changing someone’s life. Would you be a suitable candidate for a volunteer position like this? The main thing is that the pup not be left at home alone all day. Current volunteers include stay-at-home parents, post-secondary students, individuals who work from home or have their own business, part-time workers, or retirees. Puppy raisers, who are employed full-time and have permission from their employer, can have the puppy in the workplace. It’s a great way for a company to show their philanthropic spirit, and to boost morale, as employees encounter a cute little puppy at work on a daily basis.
All food, supplies, and veterinary expenses are provided by the organization. When the dog is ready to enter into formal training at the National Training Centre of Can-
adian Guide Dogs for the Blind, you must be prepared to give up the dog, so that it may continue its journey to work as a guide dog. If you would like to learn more about the

POWER SOUTH NEPEAN Notice of Commencement of Class Environmental Assessment and Invitation to a Community Information Centre We’re planning now to meet your future electricity needs To ensure South Nepean has the power to grow, Hydro Ottawa Limited (Hydro Ottawa) and Hydro One Networks Inc. (Hydro One) have initiated a Class Environmental Assessment (EA) for new electricity transmission facilities in the area. The Power South Nepean project proposes: • a new municipal transformer station (MTS) within the study area shown on the map; and • rebuilding an existing 115 kilovolt (kV) transmission line to a new double circuit line with 230 kV capacity. This line would connect the new MTS to the 230 kV line south of West Hunt Club Road. The transmission line rebuild would require replacing the existing transmission structures and widening of the corridor in certain locations. Planning and approvals This project is being planned in accordance with the Class Environmental Assessment for Minor Transmission Facilities, under Ontario’s Environmental Assessment Act. The Class EA is a streamlined process to ensure that minor transmission facility projects with a predictable range of effects are planned and carried out in an efficient and environmentally-acceptable manner. The proposed project is also subject to federal approval under the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act. Contingent on the completion of the Class EA process and other approvals, construction of these new facilities could begin in 2020.
