Former Osgoode Township Mayor Doug Thompson may have put it all into perspective in his Manotick Messenger column 20 years ago. “Candlelight dinners have lost a little of their romance in the rural areas,” he wrote. Memories have been flooding back this week as rural south Ottawa marks the 20th anniversary of the worst ice storm in local history. “Looking back at our local history, the ice storm is probably the most significant thing that has ever happened to us,” said former Manotick Messenger publisher, Joe Banks. Now a journalism professor at Algonquin College, Banks recently released a reprint of his book, ‘The Osgoode Village Story.’ Banks’ book is a poignant and detailed account of local history

Former MVCA President Klaus Beltzner is our 2017 Person of the Year Few people have done as much for the community in a five-year span as Klaus Beltzner has done from 2012-2017. Beltzner, who served as the President of the Manotick Village Community Association over that time, is this year’s Manotick Messenger Al Corrace Person of the Year. “What is great about Klaus is that he has done so much for the community at so many different levels,” said Messenger editor and publisher Jeff Morris. “He has done a lot politically, he has done a lot as a volunteer, and the things he has done to improve the community stretch far beyond Manotick’s boundaries and have affected every community in rural Ottawa in a
positive way.” During his time as MVCA President, Beltzner worked closely with Rideau-Goulbourn Councillor Scott Moffatt on a number of issues. “Klaus Beltzner has been a great advocate for the Manotick community,” Moffatt said. “During his time as President of the MVCA, we joked, argued, collaborated and commiserated on all things Manotick. He has been a great partner in working on the Secondary Plan, developing the Remembrance Park, embracing our growing community and also seeing things beyond Manotick’s boundaries that are important to the City as a whole and especially the rural area.” Beltzner was honoured
by the City of Ottawa in 2016 as he was the recipient of the Mayor’s City Builder Award. “Mr. Beltzner is a community activist and leader in the Village of Manotick and the surrounding area,” said Mayor Jim Watson during the award presentation. “As the president of the Manotick Village and Community Association (MVCA) since 2012, he collaborates closely with City staff and Councillors Moffatt and Darouze on important current and emerging issues that affect Manotick residents. He reaches out weekly to thousands of residents through his Village Voice column in the Manotick Messenger and his blog on the MVCA website. He keeps residents informed
of issues, and works with positive energy to increase residents’ involvement in celebrating and preserving the treasured aspects of life in their community. “Whether it’s expanding the “Keep it to 40” anti-speeding campaign, flagging issues with truck traffic on Bridge Street, or providing informed input to City plans, Mr. Beltzner’s goal is that all stakeholders come together to work proactively and collaboratively and to avoid misunderstandings by enhancing communication.”
Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson, left, presented the Mayor’s City Builder Award to Manotick Village Community Association President and Manotick Messenger contributor Klaus Beltzner in 2016. Joining them for the presentation were Rideau Goulbourn Councillor Scott Moffatt and Osgoode Councillor George Darouze.

ice storm continues from page 1 Banks talked about the storm during a book signing at Raymond’s Store last month. “It was the worst storm that we have ever had, but the remarkable thing was how it brought the entire community together,” said Banks. “I can’t imagine that we have had anything like that happen in our local history, to that extent.” The storm started Jan. 5, and by the next morning, everything in the area was covered in ice. Most of the region had lost power. Some had it restored briefly the next day, only to lose it again. By Jan. 8, Thompson was the first mayor in Eastern Ontario to declare a state of emergency. Prime Minister Jean Chretien toured the area, and the military rolled in to assist with 150 soldiers as part of the largest Canadian military mobilization since the Korean War. On Jan. 28, Osgoode was the last township to have it lifted. In his book, Banks quoted a Manotick Messenger from the Jan. 21,
1998 issue written by editor Derek Puddicombe, talking abut how the Osgoode Village Community Centre became a 24-hour evacuation centre. “The doors opened Jan. 8th for people to collect water. The next day the centre had a generator and 25 cots were set up for people to sleep. At the peak of the crisis, 18 people stayed overnight. “For several days volunteers depended on the Metcalfe Fire Station for supplies, but by late in the second week of the storm, the centre was self-sufficient. “’The outpouring of volunteers has been unbelievable,’ said relief co-ordinator Sue Harrington, flipping through a duotang with about a dozen pages filled with names of volunteers, phone numbers and the names of people who walked through the doors with food. Osgoode restaurants, Main Street Café and Ozzie’s, came through donating food and their kitchens to cook food. Harrington said Os-

goode didn’t need a storm to prove that residents care about each other. “’This is the best darn community in the world,’ she said.” Banks said that residents in urban and suburban Ottawa had little awareness at how severe the situation was in the rural villages and outlying communities. In his book, he described his own neighbourhood in Osgoode. “The sugar bush behind Second Line Road just south of the Main Street intersection resembled tangles of sharpened pike poles, bare on the ends. Poplars were bent over like rainbows, still encased in ice. Down the road, 10 poles had been sheared off by the relentless power of the ice. Trees exploded with a

Jim McNiece of Kars was 88 years old in 1998 when the ice storm hit. “There’s nothing I can’t cope with,” he told the Messenger. “I have my box stove and I have my wood so I’m okay. You have to make use of what you have.”

ferocity that sounded like gunshots.” Within a week, volunteers had served more than 1,000 meals. Even after power was eventually restored, the problems continued with power surges causing damage and even fires. The Jan. 21, 1998 Messenger detailed problems experienced by Paul and Bev Stevens in their Spruce Street, Osgoode home.

Manotick’s Pat Drummond recounts the ice storm in a diary on her blog During the Ice Storm of 1998, Pat Drummond, who owns and operates the Manotick Business Directory, kept a small diary each day of what was happening in her home near Manotick. Someday, she says she hopes to read it and laugh... Jan 5, 1998: We lost our power with the first ice storm that dropped 13 mm of record setting rain, freezing rain, then ice pellets (same as hail). By dawn, more than 24 mm of freezing rain had fallen, coating everything with 2-3 cm of ice. Although, we regularly get freezing rain in the winter, we hadn’t seen anything like this since Christmas 1986. The forecast said more was on the way... Jan 6: Another 10 mm of freezing drizzle to add to the 24 mm already down, with yet another storm coming. Power is out for 100,000 homes in Ottawa-Carleton as hydro lines snap under the weight of ice, but no one outside the area seems to know anything about it. The power went again just after supper and lasted till the next day. We lit the fireplace again, and talked by candlelight and went to bed under many extra blankets. We
thought it was over. Jan 7: The forecast is for another 28 mm of freezing rain! I don’t see how the trees can take any more, never mind the roof. (Later it appears we actually got 38 mm!) Again, we lost power just as we were finished cooking supper. Again, we lit the fire and candles as the drizzle continued. That night was constant explosions that was hard to sleep through. Each explosion was a large branch or tree coming down. It reminded me of movies of those whistling bombs in London during the war, with people waiting for them to hit. Around 3 a.m., I got up to check the basement and ended up repairing a leaky pipe from the sump pump with magic tape. Just to add to my humour, Skipper the cat threw up on the floor (no I didn’t step in it). Then, one of our largest backyard shade trees came down, roots and all. There must’ve been 10 cm of ice on all the trees. The doorframe over the patio door started to leak from an ice dam just as I was surveying the downed tree. Jim’s 12-volt sump pump saved our basement with my car battery as charging unit! Twenty
hours of pumping from a 12-volt battery to pump water out of the basement is not bad as it needed pumping every hour. We were using the fireplace to heat the house. Jan 8: One of our neighbors closed up his house and left, and gave us his two kerosene heaters. Ottawa-Carleton has declared a “state of emergency” today. Pray help comes before the inevitable deep freeze. Jan 9: More freezing rain in the forecast. Hydro workers are not making much progress as more lines go down as soon as they get one back up. We remembered that some friends had a generator (they were on holiday in Mexico). Things were looking serious by then, so we phoned his son. His son broke into his parent’s iced up toolshed to get the generator for us on the 9th. He picked up some kerosene that we had located, and drove out in his 4-wheel. I made a chart of how many amps everything needed and we juggled the power to do only important things - like make coffee in the morning (as if we needed cafeine, but it made us feel normal to drink it). We were still cooking in the
fireplace. Jan 10: Today, the sun came out and we could see the eerie combination of thick ice shining in the sunshine combined with the terrible destruction it had caused. Every tree in the area showed damage. We had the only whole tree on the ground, but many others won’t survive the damage. Chretien and Harris are touring the area as hundreds are now sleeping in emergency shelters. Jan 11: Kathleen dropped by with more kerosene on her way to visit her daughter, who has not had any power, water, or telephone. Jim went shopping at the hardware store for the growing list of things we need. Jan 12: 46F on the thermometer this morning. Brrrr. I phoned Mom to let her know we are OK, but I wonder if we are. I ended up going to Ottawa (the local clinic was closed) to find my hand was infected from being scratched by the cat two days ago. Antibiotics and elevate the hand and rest (joke eh?). So now Jim had to do all the labour that required two hands. A neighbour was wiring everyone’s generators up to their
electrical distribution panel. Our house was third and the furnace wouldn’t work. Jan 13: After a $200 repair bill for a new relay on our “leased” furnace with a service contract, we had an electrician wire a heavy extension cord into the furnace -for free. The generator ran the furnace for an hour and quit. Kerry arrived with the big 4 KW genny about 20 minutes later and asked “Are you Irish?!” At last, we are warm and dry without juggling cords. Ottawa’s official emergency ended today. Workers from across Ontario are in the area and the military has been helping clear trees and dig wires out of the ice. There was a public meeting in Kars village, but Jim decided to sleep instead. Someone must have impressed the guy from Ontario Hydro that there were 300 houses here with underground wiring near the Kars line. That night, our subdivision was hooked up from Kars. It took me less than 2 minutes to get the breakers on and the furnace going! Warmth! In an hour I was having a hot shower! Jim observed that daily showers are highly overrated! The most amazing
thing was that our newspaper arrived at our door even when the branches were raining down! I don’t know how they did it! Our yard is a mess - we paid the neighbors son and friend with mighty chain-saws to clean it up and the front of our yard is now about 5’ high with branches stacked up from one side to the other. We also have lots of firewood although I may not have another fire for a long, long time. There are many thousands still without power. We discovered that modern insurance policies don’t cover any of the expenses we’ve had so far, except for the dent in the car from a falling limb. Jan 14: Driving into town for a much-needed break and dinner, we saw just what a mess the wires and poles are in. There were workers in cherry-pickers working on every second road. On the way home we saw very few lights outside the towns and villages. No lights between Manotick and our group of homes and none beyond. They didn’t even have phones south of us. Jan 23: Forecasting more freezing rain... Virtually yours, Pat Drummond
ice storm continues from page 4 “The Stevens had taken all precautions by switching off the main breaker. But the night the power was restored around them, they turned it back on without realizing the electricity entering their home was unsafe. “’There was only partial voltage coming into the house,’” said Bev. ‘Every time we turned a light on the smoke detector went off.’ “A strange buzzing sound could be heard, and flames burst from outlets appliances were plugged into. The Stevens’ stove, television set and garage door opener burned before their eyes. The house’s
ceiling fans and light receptacles also blew. They immediately turned off the main breaker. “’It (the house) was a fire hazard at this point. We called Hydro three times, but because of everything that was happening, they were very indecisive.’ The Stevens also approached Hydro linemen two days before power was restored, drawing attention to the low-hanging wire above the roof of her van. They promised her the line would be checked before activated, but it was not. “’All I know is I watched my TV burn and my garage door burn,’ she said.”
Ice Storm Anniversary Celebration this weekend
Do you remember where you were when the lights went out? Do you remember the silence until the generators started and the trees began to break? Do you remember the lifestyle changes you had to make? Do you remember how our communities pulled together with neighbours helping neighbours? Do you remember the Military being called in? Do you remember? Plans are underway for the 20th anniversary celebration of the 1998 Ice Storm that hit eastern Ontario and western Quebec including Osgoode Ward which was hit fairly hard. The celebrations will take place Jan. 11-14.
On Thurs., Jan. 11 at 7 p.m., there will be a trivia night at the Vernon Recreation Centre. Trivia Queen Connie Johnston will test your skills as only she can. There will be a silent auction, light refreshments, and snacks (sorry but no bar). Cost is $10 per person with teams up to 8 people. Ages are teen and up to play. To register email Kim at youreventquestions@ gmail.com or call (613) 821-3033. Two nights later, a Saturday evening dance will have music by Bobby B Productions. For more information on events, visit Facebook. com/OsgWardEvents.

Welcome to the Messenger, residents of Richmond and area Happy New Year and welcome to my first Messenger column of 2018. A new chapter for my column begins this week, as this will be the first time that the Messenger is delivered to Richmond. Following an incredible 50+ year run of the Stittsville News, which sees its last issue delivered this week, communities in Goulbourn will experience a void and the Messenger is stepping up to help fill that void. As a result, my column will now feature some information that Rideau residents would not normally see. Up until now, I have been writing columns in the Messenger, Stittsville News, Kemptville Advance and the Carleton Place Gazette. Each column is usually different and speaks to the readership in the appropriate catchment area. Because of the change in delivery and the elimination of the Stittsville News, my Messenger column will now focus on things from Richmond in addition to matters in Manotick, North Gower and Kars. Having said all of that, welcome to the Messenger, Richmond! I first had the privilege of writing articles in the Messenger when I was in high school reporting on the South Carleton High School hockey team. That was twenty years ago. It is a great local, independent paper that focuses on community and provides coverage of our Agriculture & Rural Affairs Committee. It is a perfect opportunity for residents to stay informed. I hope you will enjoy it.
The City is looking at introducing new zoning provisions to allow limited, small-scale manufacturing and food processing, including micro-distilleries and micro-breweries, in commercial areas. Currently, the Zoning By-law restricts all manufacturing and processing activ-
ities to industrial zones that are located in segregated industrial or business parks. These land use classifications do not align to the current trend of small-scale, light manufacturing and foodprocessing activities that also include a storefront retail or restaurant component in a mixed-use area. These kinds of light “storefront industries” no longer need to be isolated in industrial areas. Under certain circumstances, they are compatible with, and often better suited to more pedestrian friendly main streets. For example, making beer is technically an industrial activity under the current zoning, regardless of quantity. The growing popularity of microbreweries and brew pubs on urban mainstreets, where the same site brews the beer and serves it to onsite customers as well as wholesaling relatively small quantities to other restaurants and retailers, is poorly accommodated by the current zoning. The proposed amendment is intended to allow small-scale light manufacturing under certain circumstances in commercial and mixed-use areas. These “storefront industries” will, by definition, include a retail or restaurant component where the products being manufactured are available for sale and/or service to customers on-site, thereby supporting the commercial intent of these areas. However, the proposal also provides for such an operation to sell or distribute its products for resale at other locations. If you have any questions or comments about this proposal, please contact Tim Moerman at Tim. Moerman@ottawa.ca.

New Years Eve Gala sets the bar high for Richmond’s 2018 celebrations Celebrations for the 200th anniversary of the Village of Richmond began in style. The bi-centennial celebrations began with a New Year’s Eve Gala that ushered in both the new year and the launch of a year’s worth of celebrations. The Duke, John Hartin, a former Richmond resident, resplendent in his finest military dress, opened the door for the guests as they arrived. With music by The Cougar Chick Tribute Band, cocktails at 6:00pm, a three course meal, four menu selections, party favours and a cash bar the revelry was well underway long before midnight. A highlight of the evening was a photo booth where nearly everyone took the opportunity to capture the moment on film. Suffice it to say lots of mem-
ories were captured as the countdown to Richmond’s 200th anniversary began. The evening was organized by Cydney Green, Maryan Wammes and Sheila Coughlin. They praised the numerous volunteers and local businesses who helped make the evening possible. The village of Richmond is the oldest settlement in what was once
Carleton County. It was surveyed and laid out in July 1818 under military authority as it was to be a supply depot for one of the new townships being set up by the British. It was to be populated by soldiers of the disbanded 99th regiment who had fought in the War of 1812. The British wanted settlers who were loyal to the Crown and familiar with military discipline and procedures, in case
the Americans should try to invade again. Richmond did not grow gradually; it was set up as a complete town with instant settlers – members of the Irishraised 100th regiment which was renamed the 99th by the time its members got to Richmond. The settlement straddled the Jock River, which was then considered a useful transport route. Early Richmond had a school, an Anglican and a Roman Catholic church, a government stores depot, a number of log homes, a grist mill and a saw mill, owned by George Lyon, a town hall and the Masonic Arms Hotel owned by Sergeant Andrew Hill and his wife Maria. Colonel George Thew Burke oversaw the settlement. Although the military withdrew its support in 1822, Richmond con-

tinued to do well and in 1850, it was the first municipal corporation in Carleton County to be formed as a village.

Food Bank says thank you for generous support The Richmond Hub From the RVA The Richmond Food Bank would like to say “Thank You” to the community that responded so generously this Christmas Season. The food bank saw an increase in need over 2017 and was getting concerned about problems meeting the need over Christmas and into the coming winter. Word spread quickly, as it does in small communities. The response was immediate. Local businesses, sports teams, schools, youth groups and community associations got involved. Funds were raised, toys and food were collected, sorted and packaged ensuring that 43 families were given a Christmas Hamper. Richmond’s Food Bank is starting 2018 with funds in the bank, food on the shelves and food in storage. As Debbie Markell, volunteer at the food bank
remarked “There is even food under the pews in St. Paul’s United Church! The giving spirit is truly alive and well in Richmond.” She then cited a list of business, schools and community groups that helped make this happen. “Thank you to each and every resident who supported us by making these food drives and fundraisers such a huge success.” The businesses were: King’s YIG, Sonya Kinkade Design, Spotlight on Hair, Jubalani Win-

Local teen has ‘best Christmas ever’ at Ellen’s 12 Days of Christmas show
It was a Christmas to remember for Reegan Belanger. The eleventh grade student at École Secondaire Pierre-Savard got the Christmas of a lifetime as she was in the studio audience for the “12 Days of Christmas” episode of the Ellen DeGeneres Show. “It was an amazing experience,” Belanger said. The Christmas odyssey for Belanger and a couple of friends actually began in April. She and two friends from her basketball team, Grace King and
Kate Donnelly, travelled to Los Angeles along with Kate’s mother, Alison. “It was a trip we went on for Kate’s 16th birthday,” Belanger said. “Her mother co-ordinated the whole thing. She knew someone from high school who works on the show, and we ended up getting tickets for the show.” Going to the Ellen DeGeneres Show in April was an exciting experience for them. “It was a great experience to see the show live, and to see what goes on
behind the scenes,” she said. At the end of the show, DeGeneres had a surprise for the studio audience. “After the show, Ellen came back out to talk to the audience and said she had a surprise for all of us,” she said. The cast of the popular Netflix series Stranger Things, who had been guests on the show, came out with her. “She told us that if they could throw a paper airplane through a hula hoop, we would be invited back for the 12 Days
of Christmas Show,” she said. “They missed a few times, and they kept moving the hoop closer until they couldn’t miss.” As a result, Belanger and her friends made a return trip to Los Angeles last month for the special show. As expected, they were showered with gifts. Belanger returned home with a motorized bike, electronic devices and more than $1,000 in gift cards. “There was also a trip for two to Las Vegas, but since I am not 21, I gave that to my parents,” she

said. For Belanger, there is no doubt where the Christmas of 2017 ranks
for her. “It was the best Christmas ever,” she said. “One hundred per cent.”
Richmond Lions Club looking for new members for bi-centennial year The Richmond Lions Club is looking to increase its membership for the 200th anniversary of the village it serves. The Lions Club is a local group of serviceminded men and women
who volunteer to support the community every day. Members also become a member of Lions Clubs International - a respected international organization, a leader in your local community, and a friend
to people in need. “Being a member of the Lions Club is a great way to stay connected and support the community,” said Chris King of King’s Your Independent Grocer, who serves as the club’s
treasurer. “We are always looking for more volunteers, but with the number of events going on this year, we want to increase our membership.” There are over 1.36 million members worldwide
who perform community service in over 200 countries and geographic areas. They are all different in many ways, but share a core belief: community is what we make it. Our members are a net-
work of individual clubs united in helping others and improving their communities. For more information on the club and how to become a member, visit www.richmondlions.ca.

The Snow Go Program can help you! This program is divided into two parts to match your individual needs to the appropriate service. The Snow Go Program provides a matching service for seniors and people with disabilities looking to hire an individual or contractor to clear snow from private driveways and walkways. Residents who participate in this program are responsible for paying the individual or contractor removing the snow.
The Snow Go Assist Program provides financial assistance to eligible low-income seniors or persons with disabilities looking to hire an individual or contractor to clear snow from private driveways and walkways. Approved participants may be reimbursed for 50% of the cost of snow clearing per event, up to a seasonal maximum of $250. Rural applicants who pay excessively high costs for snow removal, as defined by staff, are eligible up to 50% of the cost of snow clearing for
their private driveways and walkways per event, up to a maximum of $450 per term. Check ottawa.ca/ snowgo to find the agency that services your neighbourhood.

The MessengerCOMMUNITY Maybe the best New Year’s Resolution is to be a better friend As we usher in the New Year, the customs and traditions that January brings start to creep back into our daily lives. We will date out cheques incorrectly; we may complain about how much weight we gained over the holidays and we usually make resolutions that won’t be kept. We have seen the passing of another year. There have been times when experiences and certain events brought us happiness and we have laughed. For others, there has been pain and tears, some of us have said good bye to long time friends or loved ones and we have cried. If you are having trouble making resolutions for the New Year, I have some thoughts that might help all of us be better people and might even cause
THIS MONTH by Larry Ellis
some change in this mixed up world as well. First we can start by making a resolution to just be better friends. The only way to have a friend is to be one, and this means 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Ask yourself, “when was the last time you really went out of your way to help a friend?” “When was the last time you spoke to or visited that elderly neighbour or the new family that just moved into your neighbourhood?” “When was the last time you just told a friend how much they mean to you?” Being a better friend won’t
cost you anything, it can be done every day, and the positive effects are immeasurable! Think of how much better this place could be if we just cared a little more and loved a little stronger each day. Don’t let a little dispute injure a great friendship. Remember that each moment, each hour, each day is a chance along life’s journey to keep these resolutions. Remember that by changing ourselves, we can make a change in the world around us. Remember to stand by one another during life’s peaks and valleys, offer a shoulder to lean on when life’s load becomes a burden. Remember these three “Rs”; Respect for self; Respect for others; Responsibility for your actions. Happy New Year!

g n i r u Bachelor and bachelorette ideas! t a e F Affordable bachelor and bachelorette party ideas Weddings can be expensive. Various sources estimate the average cost of weddings is anywhere from $26,000 to $31,000. Couples and their parents may bear the brunt of wedding expenses, but those who have accepted a role in the wedding party also can expect their share of expenses. Taking into account gifts, wardrobes, makeup, bridal showers, and travel, including getting to and from the bachelor/ bachelorette party, bridal party members are on the hook for a lot of money when their friends or family members tie the knot. Many men and women like to travel for their bachelor/bachelorette parties, and costconscious bridal party members may be
concerned about how expensive such parties can be. Pulling out all the stops can be exciting, but there’s no guarantee these types of parties will be more enjoyable than simpler soirées. Taking steps to control costs can help cost-conscious couples and their friends. The following are some affordable ideas that can be fun for all involved. · Local Bar, pub or tavern crawl: Partygoers typically want to enjoy a night out on the town, and traveling from one establishment to another can be a fun way to do just that. Everyone invited can set themselves apart with a signature item (hat, T-shirt, or colored clothing), and make the rounds.
· Attend a group event: Group events include sporting events, concerts, theater shows, or a night at a comedy club. Investigate discounted tickets for large groups. · Belt out the tunes: Open mic nights at restaurants, bars and other establishments around town may make for a fun way for friends to share a few laughs together. Participants need not be professional singers to join in on the festivities. · Dinner party: Hire a caterer to visit your house and prepare a meal for guests. Serve a signature cocktail and let the conversation flow. Bachelor and bachelorette parties can be affordable without sacrificing fun.

Just Imagine Décor closing its doors to make way for a new shop One of the businesses that Dianne and John Pritchard from Just Imagine operate on Manotick Main Street is Just Imagine Transition Services. Now, it’s time for the Manotick business couple to work on their own transition. The Pritchards will be closing their Just Imagine Décor retail store at the end of the month to make way for a new decor shop. They will still be operating Just Imagine Realty and Just Imagine Transition Services, as well as continuing interior design consulting. “It’s time for a change,” Dianne Pritchard said. “There will be a new store coming into the location in a couple of months with some fresh and exciting things. We will still have Just Imagine Realty, and now we will be flanked by our two tenants – the new store and Rebel Petal – which will complement each other very nicely.” Pritchard, who celebrated her 70th birthday at a Manotick BIA Executive Meeting last year, said that the closure of her store is by no means due to failure. It is a step closer to retirement, but she will remain active in the other Just Imagine businesses, as well as her work in the community. “We had a very good run here with the store,” she said. “It is just time to
move on and to step aside for someone else to serve the village.” Dianne and John relocated to Manotick in late 1997, just before the 1998 ice storm to accept a new assignment for Dianne in Banking. She retired from the Bank 3 years later and she opened Just Imagine Décor, 5532 Manotick Main Street, Manotick, offering exclusive home décor items and interior design consulting, followed by Just Imagine Realty. More recently, they opened Just Imagine Transition Services to assist people downsizing or transitioning their lifestyles with the search and identification of a new residence that provides the level of lifestyle choice desired. They sort and organize your belongings and treasures, create a floor plan for your new residence to ensure that you take your most treasured pieces and make all the arrangements to ensure a stress-free, cost efficient and smooth relocation. Dianne has been a member of the Women’s Business Network of Ottawa (WBN) for 10 years serving as Vice Chair and Chairing the Business Womam of the Year Gala and is currently Vice President of the Manotick BIA having served on various committees for the past 16 years. She’s also an active mem-
ber of the Manotick Business Women’s Network, the Rideau Chamber of Commerce, and Kiwanis Club of Manotick. In her ‘volunteer’ capacity, Dianne served for 10 years on the Board of Directors and was President for 2 years for Citizen Advocacy, a not-for-profit Association supporting people with disabilities. More locally, she serves as Vice Chairman on the Board of the Rural Ottawa South Support Services (ROSSS), a non-profit, charitable organization providing a variety of rural community support services for seniors, physically disabled adults, and their caregivers. In 2013 Dianne was honoured to receive the Province of Ontario Volunteer Award in recognition of her continuing volunteer work and support in the Ottawa area. In looking back at her years operating the store in Manotick, she said there is

not one particular moment or day that stands out. “There wasn’t a particular moment or customer that stands out,” she said. “But it is the overall experience of being there every day and being a part of the community. I loved to meet new customers and I love the relationships we had with our regular customers.” While there may not
have been a favourite moment for her, there certainly was a favourite day. “Manotick Women’s Day was always great,” she said. “That was always the best day of the year in the store. I will still be able to be involved in Women’s Day through my role with the BIA.” From now to the end of the month, Just Imagine Décor will be holding a li-
quidation clearance sale to make way for the new store and the new tenants in their spot. “We will miss the store, but it’s time to move on,” she said. “Every single day was positive and we will always hold on to the wonderful memories we have made. The community was very good to us over the years. It has truly been a pleasure.”

LEGAL SERVICES Q: My husband and I are planning to make an offer to buy a smaller home and our agent suggested that we make the offer conditional on inspection. We have a friend, who has done a lot of work on his own home, who has offered to inspect the home for us. Is that a good idea?
Q: I want to lose weight.
What should I do?

A: While it may seem like an added expense that you can avoid, you B.A.,LL.B. are well advised to have the home inspected by a qualified independent home inspector. For a relatively small cost (normally around $450), you will receive a full report card on all of the major components of the home. If the report reveals a problem, having an independent report will be key in trying to negotiate a reduction to the purchase price. Even if the report is ‘clean’, the inspector’s comments and documentation will serve you well as you prepare for the joys of ownership of your new ‘smaller’ nest. Michelle Perry
VETERINARY SERVICES Q: Are human medications safe for our pets? A: This is a very important question. All mammals have different ways of dealing with medications. Very few human medications are used in identical ways with identical side effects in our pets. The safest option Dr. Andrew Sparling is to check with your veterinary D.V.M. clinic to make sure that if you are thinking of using a product made for people that a) the medication is safe for the species that it is going to be used in, b) what is the proper dosage for that species if it is safe and c) is it actually good for the issue that it is being considered for. Veterinary clinics deal with toxic exposures to human medications on a regular basis. Please call your veterinary clinic to discuss any medication or nutritional supplement prior to using it on your pet to make sure it is safe and appropriate.

TRAVEL SERVICE Q: Why should I book my vacation with Maritime Travel?
Q: What is “Oral Cancer”? A: “Oral Cancer” is cancer of the mouth. If detected early, oral cancer can be cured! Symptoms of oral cancer include; sore gums, lips, tongue or cheek, white scaly patches, swelling, lumps, numbness, pain and bleeding in the mouth. You can minimize your risks by avoiding prolonged exposure to sunlight, exposure to tobacco, limit alcohol consumption, eat a balanced diet and maintain good oral hygiene. The two most high risk activities that can cause oral cancer are excessive drinking of alcohol and smoking. Frequent dental check-ups allow for early detection of oral cancer. DR. CHEVREUL HARRIS DR.

Winter CAr CAre Car battery care in cold weather
Few things can be more frustrating than jumping into the driver’s seat on a frosty morning, turning the key in the ignition and failing to hear the engine roar to life. Frigid weather can cause trouble with a car’s battery. Some drivers do not understand why, but getting the facts can help people avoid having to deal with dead batteries on cold winter days. Cold temperatures wreak havoc on batteries because they slow the chemical reaction inside of the battery. Batteries work by combining lead plates with lead dioxide and sulfuric acid to cre-
ate electrons. While batteries can function under myriad conditions, the cold weather tends to degrade high-quality batteries and may render subpar batteries useless. The cold weather can cause the fluid in the battery to freeze and lose function. A battery that is frozen will not hold a charge, and, as a result, the car won’t start. There are various ways to protect a battery from failure in the cold, and some of them involve taking precautionary measures even before the arrival of cold weather. * Assess the age of your battery. If your battery is
old, now may be the time to replace it. Batteries differ in how long they last, but many last anywhere from five to 10 years. If your car is still running on its original battery and your card is several years old, it may be a good idea to get a new battery before the arrival of winter. Battery size will not necessarily provide better starting. It’s important to buy the correct battery for the make of your car, which can usually be found inside of the owner’s manual. * Verify that there is no corrosion. Corrosion can prevent a car from starting just as much as a

worn-out battery. Corrosion is caused by a faulty connection that allows battery acid to escape and corrode surrounding areas. Regularly inspect the battery to keep abreast of issues that may cause corrosion. Carefully clean away any corrosive residue that has formed and make sure the battery is correctly seated. * Install a battery blanket. A battery blanket is used to wrap around the battery and fit inside of the battery cover. A cord with a plug runs from the blanket to a wall outlet. The blanket can produce enough heat to keep the

tems. * Disconnect the battery. If your car will be stored in a garage for the winter, disconnect the battery. Certain devices, such as clocks and alarm systems, continue to drain battery power when the vehicle is off. If your car will not be driven enough to recharge the battery, keep it disconnected when the automobile is being stored. Cold weather can sometimes wreak havoc on vehicles. Knowing how to skirt trouble with your car’s battery can keep your car on the road throughout the winter.

It will deliver enough power to the battery while the car is off to keep it from freezing. * Minimize the use of automotive accessories. Do not start the car with the heater and the radio on. They can use up the power coming from the car’s alternator and prevent the battery from charging. Do not leave the heat and the radio on while the car is idling. Otherwise the car will not be putting out enough power for the alternator to charge the battery and power the electrical sys-

Royals let pair of third period leads slip in CCHL losses Jean-Philippe Tourigny made 49 saves, but it was not enough as the Richmond Royals dropped a 6-5 heartbreaker in a shootout to the Perth Blue Wings in Central Canada Hockey League 2 action at the Richmond Saturday night. The one point from the loss lifts the Royals into a sixth place tie in the CCHL2 Martin Division. They are tied with the Char-Lan Rebels with 27 points, though the Royals have played four fewer games. The teams traded goals in the first period as Anthony Douchant scored for Perth and Owen Scott replied with a goal from Cooper Desbiens and Ryan Bonfield for the Royals. Richmond took the lead in the second. Joe MacLean’s power play goal from Ryan Pawlikowski and Patrick Yates, and then Pawlikowski scored from Bonfield and Danny Carroll. Shane McCrank got one back for Perth late in the period, but with 12 seconds left in the second, Pawlikowski scored again from Bonfield and Carroll to make the score 4-2. That chased goalie Johnathan Peacock out of the Perth net, as he gave way for Cameron Scott. The turning point of the game happened on a Richmond power play.
