48th annual Jock River Race set for April 27th

By Keenan P. Smith-Soro

While the upcoming Jock River Race has been postponed due to the river being frozen, Mother Nature has displayed mercy and the race is set for April 27. This year’s event marks the 48th annual Jock River Race. Last year, a record number of 135 teams signed up for the competition, as well as five teams finishing in under an hour. This will be the first year that there will be a combined awards ceremony. With both the best scores of the Raisin River race and Jock River race will be compared. Described as the “rite of spring”, the Jock River Canoe race has taken place every year since 1972. Beginning on Munster Road, the race consists stretches 12.5 km across the Richmond Fen. With canoes, kayaks, voyager boats and SUPs being welcome to participate. The race itself has quite a background. In fact, its origins began in 1971 with a white-

water race being held in the lower Jock River. After growing immensely popular in Ontario, the race was moved to the upper, more tamed waters of the river in 2000. Since 2003 the race has been organized by those who seek to maintain the tradition and supported by local businesses. Specifically, the Independent in Richmond provides food and beverages for competitors after the race. Gaetan Plourde, 45, is the current organizer of the race and also a paddler himself in his spare time. “I’m originally from North Gower, but this is actually my sixth year organizing the Jock River race,” said Plourde. “I do quite a bit of marathon canoe racing myself, 15 years, a few years ago the organizer couldn’t do it anymore and I offered to take it over and organize it. According to Plourde, there are currently 258 people participating, and approximately 60 teams are signed up. However, he believes that it will be trending to 150 teams. In fact, a lot of teams actually sign-up at

the last minute. They will show up the morning of, fill out the form and pay the $15 to register, plus the $8 for insurance. Jon Shearer, is a Richmond resident and a spectator of the past canoe races. “I’ve only been here for eight years so I’m a relative youngster in the village,” said Shearer. “I don’t have any official relation to the race, I do try and provide a little for it through the hub website.” Shearer learned of the race by word of mouth in Richmond and ended up meeting paddlers in the past, while the appeal comes from canoeing himself, he does not in fact participate in the race. “I wish I could say I’ve raced in it myself,” said Shearer. “I’d like to sometime, just to see the scenery down the river and it’d be a good chance to get out and do something early in the spring.”. This will be the Jock Rivers 48th annual race, a historic one none the less as it is coupled with a combined awards ceremony that is sure to spice things up a bit.

Paddlers negotiate the Jock River in last year’s race. This year’s race talks place April 27.

French Catholic elementary school to be built in Manotick

On Friday April 5, the Government of Ontario announced that it has approved the construction of a new French-language catholic elementary school in Manotick for students in junior kindergarten all the way to Grade 6. When the school is completed, it will feature space for more than 400 elementary students as well as three new licensed childcare rooms with space for 49 children. We know that high-quality learning environments set the stage for student success, with this announcement; the government is investing in the future of students and hardworking families in Carleton. I know the residents of Manotick and surrounding areas in my riding very excited about this. The construction of this school has been on the agenda for quite some time, and I am happy to see that it has finally been given the green light.

2019 Ontario Budget

On Thursday April 11, the Government of Ontario unveiled the budget for 2019. This budget contained many important highlights, including a credible, sustainable, and fully costed plan to balance the budget within 5 years. It’s only by being fiscally responsible with our resources that we can continue to invest in programs like public health care and public education for years to come. The Government also announced that it is investing $1.4 Billion in capital education this year alone. As soon as a call for capital funding is announced, I will be working with OCDSB and local repre-

sentatives to ensure that their submissions for a new public high school in Riverside South and a new elementary school in Stittsville meet provincial guidelines. I’m also pleased to see that the government is taking steps to support famers in Carleton by proposing amendments to the Farm Products Payments Act. These long overdue amendments will go a long way to modernizing Ontario’s financial protection programs for Carleton’s farmers. The word Ottawa was mentioned 13 times in the budget, with several announcements worth highlighting. Adding on to the 1.2 billion dollar investment the Government is making in light rail transit for Ottawa, the budget also included 2 million dollars in funding for the Ottawa Police Services to help combat gang and gun related crime, as well as investment in the Children’s Treatment Centre at CHEO.

YOMA Grant

As part of the expansion work, YOMA (Youth of Manotick Association) applied for and received a grant through the United Way and the PCL (Hard Hat Heroes) Grant to buy a new stage , some lighting plus sound equipment for the Arena. On hand wereGary Coulombe (President of Kiwanis Club Of Manotick), Pierre Poilievre (Member Of Parliament Carleton) and Mike O’Neill (MVPCA) who recently had the arena named after him.

GOLDIE GHAMARI,MPP CARLETON Goldie’s story, in her own words: “My parents immigrated to Canada in 1986 – I was only one at the time. They left everything behind in Iran because they believed Canada would give their children a better life and more opportunities. My father tells me that when we landed in Montreal, we only had two suitcases and $50 to our names. My parents worked very hard to build a new life for us in Canada. As new immigrants and then Canadian citizens, they made sure to integrate themselves into Canadian society, and they instilled in my sister and me the importance of respecting and living by our Canadian values. My father comes from a farming family and he is an electrician, working daily with his hands. After staying at home to raise her two daughters, my mother now gives back to the community by working at a charity for isolated senior citizens My younger sister is an aerospace engineer. My wonderful husband Wayne teaches statistics at Carleton University. My parents taught me that the road to success comes through hard work, determination and sacrifice. We have certainly come a long way from where we started in 1986, but I will never forget our humble beginnings.”

It follows the trials and joys of this courageous woman who became known as the Florence Nightingale of the North and a true Newfoundland legend. The play is being directed by long time Manotick resident André Dimitrijevic. This will be the third time that ITR has partnered with the Ottawa Mission to provide the catering for the dinner theatres. Having the Ottawa Mission as the caterer is more than just about the food. While the dinner is fantastic, the catering also provides the Mission with a source of revenue to support a variety of programs including Food Service Training. This means that guests at a dinner theatre will enjoy good food and a great show and know they are helping people to start on the road to a better future. As well, in honour of the work of Myra Bennett, tips from the tip jar will be going to One Million in One Year - a drive to support education for and research in indigenous nursing. Often, as was the case with Myra Bennett, registered nurses are the first point of contact in indigenous communities and are the only ones available to provide immediate health care. Today, there are not enough Indigenous nurses to work in these communities and provide the culturally sensitive care they need.

The MessengerCOMMUNITY Manotick Art Association annual spring show and sale this weekend

On the weekend of April 26 through 28, the Manotick Art Association will be holding its annual spring show and sale. As in previous years, this show will feature upwards of 50 Ottawa area artists who create beautiful art in a variety of forms--oils, acrylics, water colours, batik, fabric, photography and glass. This year will welcome many new artists to the show, but will also feature some Ottawa favourites such as Rachel MacDonald, Vic Dohar, Margaret Chwialkowska, and Ann Gruchy. The show brings a breath of fresh air into the community after a long winter through a feast of vibrant colours and images. A popular event in the Manotick community, the show is free to visitors, running from 10:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. The Vernissage, on Friday, April 26th, 6:30-9:30 p.m., is a special evening not to be missed. For a $10 ticket, guests are treated to a first look at the art work available, live music by Scott Voelzing and Mark Alan, hot and cold appetizers, and two glasses of wine. Many thanks for the ongoing support of the sponsors— Royal LePage Realty and Moncion’s YIG. The Vernissage always sells out before the event;

therefore, interested visitors are encouraged to purchase their tickets as soon as possible at Manotick Office Pro, Lindsay and McCaffrey, or by visiting www.manotickart.ca and booking on-line. MAA prides itself on supporting various charities in the community. This year’s show will donate financial support to Rural Ottawa South Support Services (ROSSS). In the past, MAA has made substantial donations to YOMA (Youth of Manotick Association), ROSSS, Canadian Guide Dogs, Miller’s Oven, and the Manotick Community Centre Expansion project, among others. Long time residents of Manotick may remember MAA’s earlier show “The Dam Art Show” held each year at Watson’s Mill. By the late 1990’s MAA had outgrown this venue and the Spring Show was moved to its current venue, The Manotick Curling Center. MAA is very grateful for the cooperative relationship it has developed with the Curling Center that helps make the Spring Show a successful community event. From its humble beginnings in January 1983, MAA has grown over the years to a membership of over 160 artists in a variety of mediums. MAA artists regularly show their work at Miller’s Oven, Manotick

He was a 21-year-old senior at Syracuse University. Goldie was a 20-year-old rookie with the Blazers. They remain friends today. Costas has always been a huge fan of Slap Shot. “The movie is terrific and Ogie Oglethorpe brought his near namesake to a larger audience and further enhanced his place in hockey lore,” Costas wrote in the forward of the book. “All good. But trust me. Ogie was nowhere near as ferocious, as intimidating, or as unforgettable, as the genuine article. “Bill Goldthorpe is one of the truly unique characters in the history of sports.” After meeting Goldie, I thanked him for taking the time to meet all of us who attended the book signing event. He was gracious, humble, and appreciative. At home, I still have my VHS copy of Slap Shot, autographed by the Hanson Brothers.

What is your Greatest Accomplishment? Activities/Interests: “My main interest and extra-curricular activity is basketball, which I’ve played for school, and for a team outside of school since grade 6. Also, throughout my years at St. Mark, I’ve stayed involved


through Den Reps, who set up and plan school events, clubs like OSAID, and have also been to Leadership Camp multiple years. This 3 day ‘sleepaway’ camp through the school focused on meeting new people and trying new things. That was one of the most eye-opening and ful-

filling experiences for me in high school.� Why did you get involved in what you do? “When it comes to sport, I get involved for many reasons. I love playing sports, for the competitiveness and excitement that comes with it. It’s al-

ways fun getting to compete with my friends, and represent either my school, or my club team. Since basketball is my fa-

vourite and best sport, every game and practice is something to look forward to. Also, having regular practices and games help

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.

“A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials, heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine, desert us when troubles thicken around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.”

-Washington Irving

Cold Mango SouffléS Topped WiTh ToaSTed CoConuT (Makes 4) 4 small mangoes, peeled, pitted and chopped 2 tablespoons water 1 tablespoon powdered gelatine 2 egg yolks 1/2 cup superfine sugar 1/2 cup milk 1 1/4 cups heavy cream Grated rind of one orange Toasted flaked or coarsely shredded coconut, to decorate

Place a few pieces of mango in the base of each of four 2/3-cup ramekins. Wrap a creased collar of nonstick parchment paper around the outside of each dish, extending well above the rim. Secure with adhesive tape, then tie tightly with string. Pour the water into a small heatproof bowl and sprinkle the gelatine over the surface. Leave for 5 minutes or until spongy. Place the bowl in a pan of hot water, stirring occasionally, until the gelatine has dissolved. Meanwhile, whisk the egg yolks with the superfine sugar and milk in another heatproof bowl. Place the bowl over a pan of simmering water and continue to whisk until the mixture is thick and frothy. Remove from the heat and continue whisking until the mixture cools. Whisk in the liquid gelatine. Puree the remaining mango pieces in a food processor or blender, then fold the puree into the egg yolk mixture with the orange rind. Set the mixture aside until starting to thicken. Whip the heavy cream to soft peaks. Reserve 4 tablespoons and fold the rest into the mango mixture. Spoon into the ramekins until the mixture is 1 inch above the rim of each dish. Chill for 3 to 4 hours, or until set. Carefully remove the paper collars from the soufflés. Spoon a little of the reserved cream on top of each soufflé and decorate with some toasted flaked or coarsely shredded coconut.

Obituary Peacefully at Perley Rideau Veterans Health Centre on Monday, April 8, 2019. Cherished husband for more than 74 years of Audrey Wood. Much loved and respected father of Kerry Callan-Jones (Craig). Devoted grandfather of Christie Callan-Jones and Andrew Callan-Jones (Kristina) and loving great grandfather of Henry Callan-Jones. Father of Pamela Renton Renton and loved grandfather Lawrence Orville of her children Rachael, Naomi August 29, 1921 - April 8, 2019. and Samuel and his son Oliver.

Drs. Fowler and Zabel made cataract surgery ‘easy and painless’ During my annual eye examination in January 2018 Dr. Fowler said it was time for me to have cataract eye surgery - I agreed and I’ll tell you about my time. The first step was to meet the surgeon in Dr. Fowler’s office in April - I and others met with Dr Zabel individually. Following that the next stage was an appointment with Dr Zabel in November when I was informed that the surgery would take place at the Riverside Hospital on January 16, 2019. Now the eyes are so important for many rea-

sons - being able to see the colours, shapes, sizes, movements like kids playing, being able to drive the car, walk in the woods, and thousands of other reasons. They are a vital part of the anatomy. People talk about how scary it must be to have anything done with

your eyes. I heard all that talk and admit I was worried and concerned. The Sunday before the surgery two friends and I were talking after church and one said to me - “ don’t worry, I had mine done, so easy and painless”. I was relieved so on to the surgery! Now, into the Riverside Hospital for the eye surgery. While in the waiting room I met others I know from Manotick, there for the same purpose! I am ushered into a hospital room and have eye drops then more eye drops, total-

ly relaxed, Doctor comes in and performs the surgery, I don’t feel a thing, have a glass of juice and a muffin, go back to the waiting room, am cleared to go home. From the time I arrived at the hospital ‘til I am home is only three hours! Prescriptions are filled and drops in the eye for a month. About three weeks after the operation on the one eye I began to notice a difference - when I closed one eye and looked around then closed the other and did the same - the unbelievable

difference in what I saw! With operated eye only the snow was white, sky blue tree branches brown - now I closed the “new” eye and looked at the same scene with the “old” eye, well everything was a dull light grey. What a difference! Imagine the difference after the other eye operation and a few weeks later when both eyes will be the same. The same routine for the surgery on the other eye five weeks later back to the Doctors office the day after the surgery, all

ok come back again in two weeks, again all OK! So four weeks after for one eye and eight the other the colours I didn’t see before, no pain or even discomfort. Both eyes seeing the same and thanks to the expertise of Dr.Peter Fowler in Manotick, surgeon Dr.Ralph Zabel and staff at the Eye Clinic Riverside Hospital. The message I want to give is - cataract surgery is nothing to be alarmed about - so easy, quick, no pain or discomfort - the vision difference is incredible -I can vouch for that!!

Myers Automotive goalie David Egorov of Manotick pokes the puck away from Nickel City Sons’ forward Dylan Dutrisac during an Ontario Peewee AAA Championships round robin game at the Carleton University Ice House on April 11. Myers hosted the tournament and, while defeating the Sons’ 4-2 kept the team alive for a semi-final berth, at the end of the day they didn’t advance. The tournament was won by the Mississauga Senators, who beat the Brantford 99ers in the final. All players in the tournament were born in 2006. Mike Carroccetto photo
