Rideau-Goulbourn 2019 Town Hall Series starts this week

Happy New Year RideauGoulbourn! As we embark on a new year, I do so with new responsibilities at City Hall. In December, Council approved the roles and responsibilities for the new term of council. After serving last term as Chair of the Agriculture and Rural Affairs Committee, I had the privilege of being named the Chair of the Environment Committee. Subsequently, I brought forward a Notice of Motion to change the name of that committee to the Standing Committee on Water, Waste and Environmental Protection. The intent is to ensure that the name of the committee reflects the broad mandate of the committee and its key priorities. As for other responsibilities, I will continue to sit on Agriculture & Rural Affairs Committee, Finance & Economic Development Committee and the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority. I will also be joining the Ottawa Community Housing Board and the Planning Committee.

The Editor, These two photographs were taken 100 years apart. One was in Ottawa, and the other Manotick 2019. I am not the only one to shake my head in disbelief to see that our so called “powers that be” are still allowing the authorization of these socalled hydro domino poles with swinging hanging wires! We are all aware that as soon as there is any kind of storm, fire or other disaster, the dominoes fall, dragging the wires down with them. Oh the wailing and utter sur-

prise of what has happened! The power is out… The power is out... Remember the ice storm of 1998? Total disaster for weeks. Oh my… what did my friend from Barrhaven tell me ? They were out for about forty minutes. Duh. Andy Hayden had had the foresight to put hydro underground. Will it take another 100 years for some one with a brain and guts to stand up and say ‘enough’?

Winter driving tips Check your vehicle - Get your vehicle winter-ready with a maintenance checkup. Carry an ice scraper and washer fluid effective to -40oC. Keep your fuel tank at least half full. Consider installing four winter tires. You’re eligible for an auto insurance discount if you use them! Plan ahead, use your judgment- Plan your trip, locate your stops and check the weather. Check road conditions and closures on our website, Twitter account or call 511 for handsfree voice-activated service. Use your judgment too – delaying your trip may be the best option. If you’re on the road when conditions worsen, find a safe place to pull well off and wait. Be prepared- Have emergency supplies with you – a charged

cell phone, non-perishable food, water, fashlight, blanket, warm clothes, jumper cables, shovel and traction mats or sand. Slow down, stay alert and in controlMany winter collisions occur because drivers are going too fast for road conditions. Slow down and allow extra space between you and other vehicles. Focus on your driving and put away cell phones and other distractions. Look for re-

flections on the road – what looks like water may actually be ice. Steer gently on curves and in slippery conditions. Hard braking, quick acceleration and abrupt gear changes can cause you to skid. Avoid using cruise control on wet, snowy or icy pavement – it reduces your reaction time and vehicle control. If you do skid, release your brakes and steer in the direction you want to go.

He told them he would not likely be around to see the end of their season. But rather than have his team sadly watch him die, he flipped the situation around and taught them how to live. The story is one that I had a big soft spot for this year. Part of my give-back to the community is to be a football coach and official. Having coached high school football when I lived in a small town in Texas, I was thoroughly prepped on what our purpose was. Coaching was about building the confidence, character and life skills of young men. It was about teaching them life lessons and helping them grow. Winning was im-

portant and it was an immediate goal, but it was also a by-product of the bigger picture. Before announcing to his team that he was dying, W.T. Johnson was already a winner. He led Newton High School to the state 3A championship in 2017. But he told his players he would not likely be around to see if they could repeat as state FROM THE champs. He would not likely see another Christmas, or another Texas fall. But what he did tell them, often, was that he was blessed. He has had by Jeff Morris an amazing life and he was able to help outstanding young men. He would tell his boys to fight hard and defy the odds, a lesson he taught primarily through example. The coach passed the eight month window of survival he was given. On the Friday night before Christmas – Friday night is the night in Texas that belongs to high school football in a way that cannot be described – Newton High School defeated Canadian, a perennial powerhouse from the panhandle, 21-16 to repeat as state champions. Coach Johnson was not only alive to see the championship, but he was on the sideline in his wheelchair. His post game interview on Fox Sports went viral, and it may have been one of the most poignant interviews – sports or not sports – ever given on live television. “This has been a long journey. I can’t even begin to describe it,” Johnson said. “I’ve been given a great gift, and people just don’t understand that. The gift is I can see how my life, could affect people before I die.” After the interview, Johnson was greeted by Canadian coach Chris Koetting. Johnson stood Gfrom R O C Ehis R wheelchair and embraced Koetting. The respect they showed for each other is part of the unwritten code that Texas football has, just like Canadian hockey has its own codes. That embrace – not who won the game and who was the runner-up – was what this game was all about. The Eagles intercepted a pass in the dying minutes to ice their victory. As the clock ticked down toward the end of the game, the players approached and embraced their coach. Most hugged him around the neck, showing love and respect for a man that has helped shape their young lives. “These guys have touched my life, but it’s mutual,” Johnson said. “They wanted to win for me. This is their time,” the coach said. “I’ve had my time. I told them do it for your teammates, do it for you. “They’ll remember me. If I’ve done right, a part of me’s gonna live in them. And that’s the way I’ve always thought.”

The MessengerCOMMUNITY Orthodox New Year celebrated in Santa Claus Parade a success many areas January 14th

The Orthodox New Year is January 14th. It is not a federal public holiday but it may be a regional or non-official holiday limited to regional areas or religious groups in countries such as Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia, Russia, and the Ukraine. The Orthodox New Year is observed among Orthodox Christians in countries such as Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States. The Orthodox New Year is widely known as the Old New Year. It is marked as January 1 in the Julian calendar, which was used before the Gregorian calendar. Some countries, including Italy, Poland, Portugal, and Spain, accepted the Gregorian calendar’s introduction in 1582. The conversion

THis week,

took longer for other countries such as Great Britain (1752) and Lithuania (1915). Moreover, some countries dropped a number of days when they began using the Gregorian calendar. For example, England and Scotland dropped 11 days for the conversion. Some communities did not accept the loss of these days and preferred to use the Julian calendar. Many Orthodox churches still recognize the holiday dates according to the Julian

calendar. The Orthodox New Year does not remain static in the Gregorian calendar because there are shifts between the Julian and Gregorian calendars over time. For example, the Old New Year falls on January 14 between 1901 and 2100 but it will move again in time if the Julian calendar is still used. The Julian calendar was revised in 1923 and this version is more in line with the Gregorian calendar. Some Orthodox churches follow the revised Julian calendar but many Orthodox churches still follow the more traditional Julian calendar, which has the original dates for Christian observances prior to the Gregorian calendar’s introduction. Happy New Year!!

romans continues from page 1 “It got away from them,” Allen said. “They were a little bit discouraged after the game, but they also know that was the best team they will face this year.” The Chinese team was an example of the growth in popularity of hockey in that country. In September, the Boston Bruins and Calgary Flames played pre-season exhibition games in Shenzhen and Beijing. Beijing also has a professional hockey team, as the Kunlun Red Star plays in Russia’s Kontinental Hockey League. “China is an emerging hockey market,” said Brian Hu, a Beijing parent who is an assistant coach and translator for head coach Sean Skinner, a Detroit native who has been a skills development coach for the Montreal Canadiens and the US Olympic Women’s hockey team. “There are a lot of kids eight and under playing hockey in China.” Hu said the kids on the Winter Sport Hunters have been together for about five years, practicing three to four times per week. On average, the Chinese team is on the ice for 20 hours a week. In addition to hockey, the kids also play basketball, soccer and tennis. “With Beijing hosting the 2022 Winter Games, there is a big push to promote hockey and other winter sports in China,”

Skinner said. “They are planning on building a couple hundred ice rinks in the country and making the sport more viable in China.” Ten years ago, AnDong Song played in the Bell Capital Cup for the Beijing Dragons, who were billeted by the Osgoode-Rideau team. Song was drafted by the New York Islanders and is now playing college hockey at Cornell University. This year’s version of the Win-

ter Sport Hunters have a couple of elite players who may follow in Song’s footsteps.

They also bounced back from their 11-0 loss with an 8-0 win over Syracuse.

Annual Shiverfest winter carnival set for January 25-26 in Manotick

An application for a zoning amendment that would allow the development of a 95 unit single detached residential development at 6067 First Line Road has been submitted to the City. The subdivision would include a large amount of park land and a woodlot in addition to the 95 dwellings. The land parcel currently includes farmland and a discontinued quarry lot. It is bordered by Carsonby Road on the north and Rideau View Golf Club on the east. This development was originally proposed prior to the amalgamation of Rideau Township with the City of Ottawa for 76 units on estate lots. A public meeting on the proposal was held in 2003. A draft subdivision plan was approved in 2008 with a number of conditions. Earlier this year, the City gave its approval of a revised draft plan of subdivision. The MVCA is looking at how the development will be serviced, the current lot sizes and how the City and developer plan to address the anticipated increase in traffic along First Line, among other questions. The City is looking for comments on the proposal by November 21. Information on the application can be found at https://app01.ottawa.ca/postingplans/appDetails.jsf?lang=en&appId=__ A8OK1R Questions or comments can be submitted to: Seana.Turkington@ottawa.ca Manotick’s annual winter carnival is set for January 25 and 26 at various locations throughout the Village and has some new events on the agenda. Friday night features a free skating exhibition by the Rideau Skating Club at 6 p.m. in the Manotick Arena, followed by a free public skate at 7 p.m. sponsored by the Manotick Messenger. A children’s Magic Show will follow in Kiwanis Hall at the Arena at 8 p.m. From 6:30 – 8 p.m., head outdoors for the opening bonfire with the Manotick Fire

Children’s fun time by My Little Preschool and face painting will be offered from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m., along with the addition of story time with the Manotick Public Library at Manotick Cooperative Nursery School. Don’t miss the opportunity to tour the Manotick Fire truck or head outdoors for horse-drawn sleigh rides and free hot chocolate compliments of CIBC. Get your photo taken with Frosty! At noon, our popular Chili Cook-off opens for judging at the Manotick Legion. Five dollars gets you a ballot to vote for your favourite chili. Both amateur and professional chefs offer their best recipes for judging. You can still register to be a chef by emailing Jane.dormon@ gmail.com We have added a new event this year – martial arts demonstrations at Cooligan Martial Arts on Main Street.

It will feature programs for all ages – lots of fun for the family! Our popular curling demos are back again. From 12:30 3:30 p.m., you can learn how to curl and practice throwing some rocks at the Manotick Curling Club. The afternoon also includes bingo, hosted by ROSSS, at Manotick United Church from 2-4 p.m. Cards are free with prizes donated by local merchants. The program ends with two Saturday night events featuring local entertainment and trivia questions. Open Mic at Creekside Bar and Grill starts at 8 p.m. and the popular fundraising trivia night at The Mill Tavern is from 7 to 10 p.m. Tickets for trivia are $15 and can be purchased at Manotick Office Pro. Full details are available on our web site. We would like to thank all of our local businesses who have supported Shiverfest. We hope to see you there! Centennial Park Enhancement Team wants to hear from you! If you have ideas about making better use of Centennial Park (adjacent to the Manotick Arena), you have a chance to share those ideas at two upcoming consultation sessions. A working team, led by Manotick Culture, Parks and Recreation Association (MCPRA), is heading an initiative to complete a Concept Plan for Centennial Park. While

much of the park will stay exactly as it is, other features could benefit from either modest upgrades or a makeover! The goal is to have a final Park Plan and preliminary costing by March 1, 2019, in order to apply for a Community Partnership Major Capital Program grant. The Concept Plan is a design that will guide future park development and decisions. If an individual wanted to donate a bench or tree, or a group wanted to improve the Skateboard facility, the Concept Plan will help strategically direct those investments. You can sign up for one of two sessions at the Manotick Community Centre (Arena): • Thursday, January 10, 7 – 9 p.m., • Saturday, January 12, 8:30 – 10:30 a.m. Please register by going to http:// www.mcpra.ca or calling Mike at 613-692-3213. The Working Team includes the MCPRA, Manotick and Village Community Association (MVCA), Youth of Manotick (YOMA), Kiwanis Club of Manotick, Ottawa South Basketball, the Ottawa Skateboard Association, ROSSS, and more. For project details, contact the Project Manager, Brock Thom: brock.j.thom@gmail.com or the project secretary Mike O’Neil manotick.mike@ gmail.com.

School: St. Mark High Grade: 12 Parents: Susan & Trevor Brother: Connor (19) Engineering at Queen’s University Pets: Two Cats, Cluseau and Oola Pet Peeve: “When people planning something cannot make a final decision on time or location.” What do you enjoy reading for pleasure? “I really enjoy reading fantasy and sci-fi novels. I love great series such as A Song of Fire and Ice (Game

of Thrones), Lord of the Rings and Rangers Apprentice.” Who is your favourite author? “My favourite author would have to be Piers Anthony. He has written three different series, which I love. The Incarnations of Immortality Series shows ordinary people becoming the Incarnations of Death, War, Time and some other stations. This series has such a unique idea, and the books are some of my favourites to reread every so often. His longest running series, Magic of Xanth, is always entertaining for multiple reasons. There are around

40 of these books (he’s still writing them), and every single one of them is filled to the brim with puns and new and interesting characters. The third and final series of his which I read, is The Apprentice Adept Series. This series is based on a world with two realities, one in which science is extremely advanced and the world is a very classbased society living in domes on an inhospitable planet, the other where science does not work and instead magic is prominent, and several powerful adepts maintain power using such magic. This world is so well designed and flushed out, that the characters, who can switch back between the two, make up one of my all-time favourite stories.” Activities/Interests: “Outside of school I enjoy playing recreational hockey and Dungeons & Dragons. With the school, I am a part

of the school play, a Cappies critic, I help organize spirit days, and set up for school dances. I also run the Tabletop Gaming Club and the Chess Club.” Why did you get involved in what you do? “I’ve played hockey for most of my life. For several years I even played competitively. After taking a year off hockey, last year I wanted to get back to playing at a recreational level. As for Dungeons & Dragons, I find it’s a great way to unwind with friends and release my inner nerd. I enjoy acting, so the school play is awesome to be a part of. The Cappies program is all about reviewing school plays from all the schools around the city of Ottawa. Last year I managed to be published in the Ottawa Citizen for one of my reviews. I find that this program is great writing practice, and it’s always fun to

Carter Ibach has played hockey for most of his life, but is also enjoying acticities like the Cappies program at St. Mark. Phill Potter photo go see plays and musicals.

VOICE continues from page 11 Open House for Earl Armstrong Road Extension

The City of Ottawa is holding a public open house on Wednesday, January 16, to consult on the Environmental Assessment Study for the proposed extension of Earl Armstrong Road to Hawthorne Road. This is an opportunity for the public to provide feedback on the project process, schedule, environmental conditions and the evaluation of alternative solutions and corridors. City staff will also be presenting a preliminary preferred solution and

corridor for comment. The extension of Earl Armstrong Road is important for local residents as it will facilitate truck traffic using that route as an alternative to Mitch Owens. The Open House is being held at Fred Bartlett Arena, 3280 Leitrim Road from 6 – 9 p.m. For more information, you can contact the City Planner, Katarina Cvetkovic at Katarina.Cvetkovic@ ottawa.ca

Distracted Driving Penalties Increase

How much is that call, text or message worth to you? It could be an expensive decision with

the new maximum fines of up to $1000, three demerit points and higher insurance premiums for those caught doing those activities. New Ontario laws took effect on January 1st to encourage drivers to keep their eyes on the road. Full details: h t t p s : / / w w w. o n t a r i o . c a / page/distracted-driving

Around the Village

At a time when some community rinks are not operating due to a lack of volunteers, I would like to salute our local rink masters who ensure our children can skate at the outdoor rinks at Maclean Park and Centennial Park. We are

fortunate to have these individuals who water the ice and clear the snow – sometimes in the wee hours of the morning. Thank you!

DENTAL SERVICES

Q: What can I take for a bad cough?

Q: Did you know almost 40% of adults avoid the dentist because of fear?

A: During the winter season a

A: Regular dental appointments are necessary to maintain your overall health. Please let your dentist know if you are nervous so that they can put you at ease during your visits. There are many ways to relax during the appointment; listening to music is a great distraction so bring your ipod. Try deep breathing to relax your body. Caffeine can often cause you to be jittery so try to avoid caffeine prior to your appointment. Many offices offer IV conscious sedation or nitrous oxide (laughing gas). Don’t let your fear of the dentist put your oral health and overall health at risk!

cough is often caused by a cold or flu virus and should improve within a few days or weeks. A physician should be seen if the cough is prolonged or associated Pharmacist with high fever, coloured mucous, breathing difficulties or chest pain. To reduce the symptom of cough, there are over-the-counter remedies such as cough suppressants, expectorants, sprays and lozenges. Age, health conditions, and other medications should be considered when looking for a cough remedy so be sure to consult your pharmacist before selfselecting. As well, good nutrition, staying hydrated and getting plenty of rest will allow for optimal recovery.

VETERINARY SERVICES Q: Does sidewalk salt hurt my pets feet? A:

Our pets foot pads seem fairly tough but the salt and other deicers used to melt ice can be irritating to them. Attempt to keep away from areas that are heavily salted and wiping your pets feet off with a damp Dr. Andrew Sparling cloth after a walk can help reduce the D.V.M. contact time and irritation. Our pets also lick their pads and ingestion can cause problems as well. Wiping of their feet and monitoring them when they are outside to prevent eating these products will lower this risk. Using pet safe deicers will help lower risks on your own property as well. Ask your veterinary team if you are concerned about your own pets paws.

Dining Out ing

Featur

9 tips for a better dining experience

Most people enjoy dining out for various reasons, including the opportunity to try new flavors, interact socially and avoid cooking and cleaning up at home. Canadians are dining out more often. A Dalhousie University survey found that nearly 42 percent of Canadians either buy ready-to-eat meals or dine at a restaurant once or twice a week, while another 3 percent admitted to doing so on a daily basis. Dining out puts customers in direct contact with the people who make restaurants run like clockwork - most notably, food servers. While big tips are a great way for diners to express their gratitude to their servers, there are other ways to show thanks. 1. Make a reservation and arrive on time. When a reservation has been made, make sure all members of the dining party arrive on time. A punctual arrival helps the restaurant

run more smoothly, especially if it is a large party. If you will be running late, call the restaurant and notify them. 2. Let needs be known early on. If you’re rushing to make it to a movie, let the server know that time is of the essence so service can be expedited. If you prefer to lounge, ask to be seated in an out-of-the way spot. 3. Only signal the server when you’re ready to order. Do not call the server over if you need to continue perusing the menu. 4. Be courteous to the server and fellow customers. It is important for all customers to wait their turn and avoid interrupting waiters when they are taking other customers’ orders. In addition, allow servers to mention the specials before ordering. 5. Alert staff to food allergies when ordering so that the kitchen can be notified that a special order will be coming in. This enables

everyone to be prepared and reduces the risk of someone getting sick. 6. If something is not right with the meal, mention it early so it can be remedied. Do not eat an entire meal before filing a complaint with the server. 7. Recognize that servers have nothing to do with the wait time for a table. Do not take your frustration out on the server if it takes awhile before you’re seated. 8. Clean up after yourself and children. If your party makes a big mess or a child gets sick or spills something, make an effort to clean up the table. 9. Consider the bigger picture when deciding what to leave as a tip. Servers have no control over the quality of the food, wait times or even the atmosphere. Take up issues with the management and make sure the tip reflects the job done by the server.
