DINING OUT turing Fea

The importance of friends cannot be overstated. Maintaining a healthy group of friends can help relieve stress by enabling a person to have a go-to network of close companions with whom to share the ups and downs of life. The Mayo Clinic says that friends can increase one’s sense of belonging and purpose; help one cope with trauma; encourage change and help one improve his or her self-confidence and selfworth. The medical group also says that people with strong social support systems have a reduced risk of depression, high blood pressure and unhealthy weights. While friends are important, some people find that making new friends — particularly in adulthood — can

The art of making friends

be challenging. That’s because making friends may not be too great a priority compared to caring for families or tending to work responsibilities. Those resolving to broaden their social circles can explore these tips for making new friends. • Start at school. School is often the first place children make friends, but school also can be a great place for adults to meet new people. By attending school functions, you will be thrust into a circle of people similar to you. Parents who get to know their childrens’ friends’ parents may find that they have more in common than just their children. • Join groups. Kids find it easy to make friends due to consistency. They see the same kids each day at school

and through sports teams and clubs. Adults can replicate this consistency by joining groups that spark their interests, finding like-minded people who meet week after week. • Go on a blind “date.” Have a friend set you up with a mutual friend and see if there is a connection there. You may be able to make new friends simply from an introduction. • Take the lead. Pursue a new friendship by taking some initiative. Invite someone out for coffee or over to your home for a glass of wine. Follow up afterward to say you had a good time. • Be positive. Be conscious of what you are adding to a potential friendship. Start off the relationship adding value and joy to the other person’s life, and he or she may be

more inclined to do the same. Over time, you can have conversations about rough patches in your lives but wait until the friendship is firmly established to get so serious. There is no magic number of friends a person should have, but individuals should value quality over quantity. Making friends may seem



complicated, but it is actually easier than adults may think when they put themselves out there and shows a willingness to build relationships. • Go to an interesting or fun place that will allow everyone to relax and unwind from the stresses of everyday life, it’s always easier to be yourself when you are relaxed.

Annual Jock River Canoe Race in Richmond rescheduled to Sat., April 24 From RichmondHub.ca The annual Jock River Race has been rescheduled due to icy conditions and will be held Saturday, April 24. The race runs in the Jock River from Munster Road to the finish line at Jock River Park in Richmond. Starting in 1972, the Jock River Canoe Race has been a rite of Spring and the unofficial opening the canoeing season for paddlers and racers alike for 45 years. The 12.5km race through the Richmond Fen is one of the area’s great springtime adventures. All paddlers including canoes, kayaks, SUPs, voyageur boats

and others are welcome to race. Whether you’re a seasoned marathoner or just want to try it out this race is for you. Racing experience is not required, simply a desire to join a fun event and to get an early put-in on the water. The start area for this 12.5 km (7.8 mile) section of the Jock River is on the Munster Rd. about 2 km south of the Franktown Rd. A few minutes downstream there is a shallow rapid followed shortly by an easy chute of fast water. Open fields and the occasional farmhouse mark the next few kms before several sharp bends signal the beginning of the “Richmond

Fen”, an interesting and rather eerie wetland. The first appearance of the railway marks the end of the fen, and the river widens considerably. Shortly after passing the Trans-Canada Pipeline a long class I rapid awakens your adrenaline. The church spires of Richmond now come into view, followed by another long set of class I rapids which require some maneuvering to avoid rocks. From the end of these rapids the orange buoy marking the finish line at the Jock River Park is a welcome sight. Registration is from 8:30 am – 11 a.m. at Jock River Park in Richmond on race morning.

Richmond Fair President David Brown to seek Rideau-Goulbourn Council seat By John Brummell Special to the Messenger David Brown, A familiar face and individual to many in the RideauGoulbourn area, is tossing his hat into the ring in the upcoming civic election slated for Mon., Oct. 22. Born and raised in Richmond, Brown’s educational background spanned the following schools beginning with Stittsville Public school, where he attended Kindergarten to Grade three for French Immersion, followed by terms at Richmond Public School, Goulbourn Middle School, and graduating from South Carleton High School to move onto Kemptville College for the ‘Dairy Herds Person’ Program. The 27-year-old Brown’s formative years were spent, as many young persons do, being involved in such organizations as, Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and eventually a

stint with the Air Cadet Squadron in Kanata. As a Volunteer he has assisted the Richmond Food Bank and has served as Secretary of the Board of Managers for St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in Richmond. Brown feels strongly that his greatest volunteer achievement, and most rewarding personally, has been his affiliation with the Richmond Agricultural Society. Now in his 18th year belonging to the society, he is finishing his second year as the Fair Boards President, presiding over the leadership and the helpful direction of the countless volunteers serving on the board and those helping at fair time each year. Mr. Brown first joined the agricultural society as a student volunteer to progress over the years to the following positions; committee volunteer, Junior Director, Director, Second then First Vice President taking over the reigns of the Society in

brown continues from page 4 When asked to comment on what he took away from his time with Minister Pollievre, Brown said, “time management and the ability to make sure that all your paper work is completed and the concerns of residents are addressed.” He went on to state that “Pierre answered every single correspondence, letter, e-mail, phone call and hand written letter from residents. That is what I want to bring to my position if elected.” Brown said his desire is to “make a difference” at City Hall. “I absolutely feel I can make a difference at City Hall as I want to increase the service standards for our winter snow plowing so that we should not have to wait up to 16 hours, after a storm, for the city plow to do the residential areas which is far to long in my estimation.”

He also points out that he wishes to make sure the rural areas are adequately served by the police and that they are adequately funded. “We need more police coverage in the rural parts of Ottawa so they can have a greater public visibility as they police our rural communities,” he said. Brown also said that all of rural Ottawa cannot be looked upon as a single entity by the city. “Every rural village is special and every rural village possess its own unique character,” stated Brown. “Coming from a rural background, I want to make sure that every community is respected.” Further, he states that he strongly supports community events such as Manotick’s Dickinson Days, the Richmond Fair, Kars Family Fun Fair and Canada Day celebrations

in Munster, North Gower. “All of these events, and others in these communities, help to solidify that cohesive community feel,” Brown said. A strong part of Brown’s platform is to work hard to providing more leeway for rural planners. He states that one of the biggest challenges is that not for profit and charities have to fill out an inordinate amount of paper work to be able to hold their events and parades. To that end, he would like to scale back the bureaucracy that has been built up over the past eight years. Brown’s strongest campaign desire regards the present state of waste and its present form of disposal. To state the obvious fact, the City of Ottawa has a responsibility to provide essential services,”

City staff asked to make pathway design along Mitch Owens Road safer The Board of the Manotick Village and Community Association (MVCA) has written to City staff asking for a change in the proposed design of the pathway along Mitch Owens that would link St. Mark High School and the Village. The current proposal calls for a Multi-Use Pathway consisting of paved shoulders with a rumble strip running along this very busy highway. This would put students and other pedestrians/cyclists right next to vehicular traffic, particularly trucks, travelling at 80 km/h without any type of buffer zone. We are asking the City to keep a storm ditch between the pathway and the road for safety reasons. We fully support the construction of this pathway but want to ensure that it is a safe, proper route for our residents. You can find information on the proposed design at www.ottawa.ca/osgoodepathway

In my last column, I quoted some incorrect figures about the volume of trucks that would travel to the proposed Boundary Road Waste Site.

Top home improvement tips (NC) Summer is one of the best times to focus on outdoor home improvement projects that deliver the greatest return on your investment. “While there are many renovation options available to homeowners, not all are created equal,” explains Brad Johnstone, broker of record for the Royal LePage Niagara Real Estate Centre. “Some improvements help bolster

your property’s resale value more than others, so before you invest your time and money, be sure the project will pay off in the long run.” In order to receive the best bang for your buck, Johnstone recommends these three outdoor improvement tips: 1. Build a deck or patio. A new deck or patio is a great way to add a focal point to any backyard. Not only

do these structures add to a property’s visual appeal, but they also provide homeowners with the means to enjoy their outdoor living space to the fullest. During the summer months, a patio is a great place to entertain guests, barbecue, and enjoy leisure time with friends and family. Whatever your motivation, a deck or patio will encourage you to get out and enjoy the summer, all while

adding a healthy amount to your property’s bottom line. 2. Install a sprinkler system. On average, homeowners use 50 per cent more water than necessary on their lawns, adding to their monthly bills and causing their grounds to flood. Automatic lawn sprinklers are an easy way to avoid this as they are designed with busy lifestyles in mind. Although installation can be costly, you

may save money in the long run. 3. Landscape your yard. Landscaping is one of the best ways to add visual interest to your outdoor living space for a relatively small fee. Whether you choose to garden or install a built-in fixture like a pond, beautifying your backyard is a great way to create an attractive and serene environment that builds your home’s equity.

Building outdoors? Choose Western red cedar, naturally! For all your fencing and decking needs! Wide selection of building materials for all your construction projects. Full line of pressure treated spruce, #1 pine, plywood, insulation, caulking, and builders’ hardware supplies.

There is no place like home for Manotick dentist Dr. Larissa Patterson By Margot Belanger It is an understatement to say that women form the backbone of small business in Manotick. Just count the number of women business owners and managers in the Village. And as far as Dentist Larissa Patterson is concerned, there is no better place to dive right into business ownership than the Village of Manotick. She always knew that, when she finished her education, she would come back here to start up her career. Doctor Patterson was born in Prince Edward Island and has, in a unique way, always remained an “Islander”. Her parents settled on Long Island when she was four years old, and she now lives on the Island herself, with her husband, Rob Saxberg, and her daughter. When she was wrapping up her Bachelor of Science degree at Carleton, Dr. Patterson was uncertain about what health professional field she would pursue, although dentistry was a leading contender. She sought out her dentist, Dr. Doug McEwen, for a heart-to-heart talk and when she demanded,

“but then I saw how long some of the board members had been serving, and decided it was my turn to contribute”. “Do I really want to do this?”, he shot back with “Yes, you do!” And, yes she did! After completing her dental studies at Western in 1997, she opted to buy into Dr. McEwen’s practice right off the top, and expresses her gratitude for his mentorship, and that of Doctors Ed Anderson and Bruce Lister, for giving her the guidance she needed to grow her practice into the thriving Bridge Street business that it is today. She credits her success in no small measure to her tight-knit dental team, who work hard to guarantee their clients a thoroughly professional experience. The field of dentistry, like so many other medical professions, has certainly evolved since Dr. Patterson began practicing. But a big change, for her personally, is that her younger

patients don’t harbour that traditional dread of the dentist that her older patients still carry with them from the days when pain prevention wasn’t as much of a priority, except for extractions and such. She likes to see parents bring in their children at an early age so that they learn to relax in the chair. Dr. Patterson has very close ties to the Rideau Skating Club, going back to when she was a young girl and her mother was a volunteer. She switched to hockey when she was in grade eight, and was a member of the first allgirls team in Manotick; she finally quit playing when she developed shoulder issues which were affecting her work. But her daughter has been one of the Skating Club’s 450-plus members since she could stand on skates, and

Dr. Patterson joined the board of directors as its Secretary two years ago. “For a long time I sat on the sidelines, “ she said, “but then I saw how long some of the board members had been serving, and decided it was my turn to contribute”. Dr. Patterson’s enthusiastic message to young people considering a career in dentistry - “Come and see me! Let’s talk!” Sounds like fairly painless visit to the dentist, don’t you think? This is the second installment in a series written by Margot Belanger called These Women Mean Business. The series is a prelude to the Chic Time in the ‘Tick event, May 4, 201

Honour Roll student enjoyed his season with Osgoode Richmond Romans Name: Nolan Holmes Age: 17 School: Osgoode Township High Grade: 12 Parents: Kim Peter Holmes


Sister: Paige Holmes, Third Year, Forensic Psychology, University of Toronto Pet Peeve: “When a person is credited for something that they did not contribute to, or had minimal impact on.” Part-Time Work: “Throughout the summer and into the fall season I work in the backshop at the Carleton Golf and Yacht Club. During the same time frame,

I work at Fairweather Farm, an organic vegetable farm.” Favorite Subjects: “Physics and Mathematics. I really enjoy crunching numbers and using equations. So I prefer these two subjects over others.” What do you enjoy reading for pleasure? I enjoy reading novels, and tend to read fiction novels, rather than non-fiction. My favorite genres are action and adventure, as well as science fiction.” Who is your favorite author: “My favorite author is Pittacus Lore. I loved the work he did in the I Am Number Four series. His works are very captivating, because he adds a touch of science

fiction to an otherwise normal planet earth, which creates an exhilarating plot.” Ac c o m p l i s h m e n t s : “Throughout my high school career, I have been awarded certain academic awards, such as subject awards in Integrated Technologies and French, as well as top overall average in my grade ten year. I am very pleased by the fact that I have been able to obtain a 90% average or above for the five of six semesters I’ve spent at OTHS. Aside from academics, I’ve been part of many winning sports teams. These teams include a ROMSA softball team, in which we won playoffs in 2016 and 2017, and an intersectional golf team, representing Carleton Golf and Yacht Club, who

won the Ottawa Valley championship in 2014.” Activities and Interests: “Throughout every season I’m generally involved in a sport, either representing my community or my school. I enjoy many sports such as softball, baseball, golf and downhill skiing. However, my favorite sport is hockey. This year I’m a member of the Osgoode Richmond Romans hockey team, playing at the Rep B Level. I also like spending time outdoors, where I enjoy activities such as fishing.” Why did you get involved in what you do? “I’ve been interested in all sorts of sports from a young age. I have also enjoyed taking on leadership roles at school. This

year I am part of the Athletic Council at OTHS. I believe this role allows me to express my appreciation for physical activity, and my desire to be a leader in a positive way, which gives back to my fellow peers. I’m also involved with a Peer Tutoring class where I get to assist the students and the teacher of a grade nine gym class. I got involved with peer tutoring, because it allows me to be put into shoes similar to those of a teacher, and to get an understanding and appreciation of the things they deal with on a regular basis. I also have the opportunity to set a positive example for the grade nines, who are new to the high school scene.” Career Goals: “As of

right now, my goal is to become a successful businessman. Next year I’m hoping to go into a commerce program at university. My options remain open, for whether or not I will decide to leave town, and which universities to which I will apply.”

Manotick’s Sinclair knocks off world champion to win Pinty’s Grand Slam of Curling Then she stole one in the second, two in the third and another single in four to take a 4-0 lead at the half. Controlling the fourfoot zone frustrated Jones’ attempts to generate any serious offence before Team Sinclair shut the book on a Jones comeback with a brilliant doubletakeout to score three in the seventh end. “Without the hammer, we wanted to clog up that four-foot and put some pressure on her, make her throw those angle runs. She made them against us at the worlds but just came up short against us here today, so we definitely tried to capitalize on that.” The final event of Team Sinclair’s season is the Champions Cup which begins in April 24 on Calgary. “Definitely a boost of confidence going into the last event of the season,”

Sinclair said. “We’re just going to have some fun, ride this high and hopefully keep playing just as well as we did this week.” Jamie Sinclair, Alexandra Carlson, Vicki Persinger and Monica Walker hold up their trophy after knocking off the workd champion Jennifer Jones rink at the Pinty’s Grand Slam of Curling in Toronto Sunday.

TORONTO -- Toronto’s Maple Leaf Gardens is the site of many memorable sporting events over the years. But for Manotick’s Jamie Sinclair appearing at last week’s Players Championship Grand Slam Curling event, it was more than memorable; it was historic. Sinclair skipped her U.S.-based team to a 7-2 drubbing of the current world champion Jennifer Jones rink from Winnipeg in the final, earning her the first ever Grand Slam Title by an American squad. Sinclair, who was born in Alaska but raised in Manotick and learned to curl at the Manotick Curling Centre. “I don’t have words to describe how proud I am of this win and this team,” Sinclair said. “We

have worked so hard on our game plans in the past 5 weeks and it has truly paid off. We went out there confident and ready for battle. Hopefully the success of US curling will help grown the sport and bring more sponsors on board” There are four Major curling events in the seven event Grand Slam season, the Players Championship included. Twelve of the top teams in the world competed. Along the way to this week’s victory, Sinclair defeated current Olympic Gold Medalist Anna Hasselborg, bronze medalist Team Fujisawa of Japan and former world champion Silvana Tirinzoni of Switzerland. Sinclair took control from the first end with a slick double-takeout in the first to force a blank.
