DINING OUT g Featurin Fun Family Night Out

Tips for a fun family night out In its 2016 National Dining Survey, Zagat found that the average person dines out 4.5 times per week. That figure may seem high to some, especially parents with young children at home. While parents of young children may not dine out as often as the average person, there are ways for families to plan fun nights out on the town, no matter how young their kids might be. · Find family-friendly restaurants. The establishments where families choose to do their dining can make all the difference. Trendy hotspots or upscale restaurants may not be great choices for family nights out. Such establishments may be too expensive or fail to offer kid-friendly fare, and parents of especially young children may feel uncomfortable if their tots begin to cry in the middle of dinner. When choosing a restaurant for a family night out, parents should look for a

spot that’s naturally more noisy so a crying baby or excited child won’t make moms and dads or other diners uncomfortable. Diners or chain restaurants tend to offer kids’ menus in addition to plenty of dishes that kids will readily consume. · Choose the right time. Dining out at night can be difficult for families, as kids might be growing tired. Instead of a night out on the town, book a mid- to late-afternoon out. Restaurants tend to be less busy during these times of day, and parents can relax and enjoy the company of their children while still getting out of the house for a family meal together. · Bring along some entertainment. Some kidfriendly restaurants may provide crayons and placemats that kids can use to create their own artistic masterpieces. But parents should bring backup entertainment just in case. Pack some

crayons and coloring books or bring along a book to read to your children while you wait for your meal to be delivered. Bring along a couple of toys to keep especially young children occupied as well. · Practice your night out. Parents of young children who have yet to try dining out as a family can make a few practice runs at home. Choose a night at home to teach kids how to behave at restaurants. If kids tend to squirm a lot or take long periods of time to eat meals at home, explain to them that such behavior is unacceptable at restaurants, encouraging them to sit still and focus on eating their meals during your practice run. Nights out on the town as a family may make parents of young children nervous or hesitant. But there are a handful of ways to make sure such excursions are fun for kids and parents alike.

Stonebridge residents concerned over Mattamy proposal Plan would see golf course shortened to accommodate 158 new homes It was a tough night for Kevin Murphy. The Mattamy Homes Director of Land Development was on the hot seat during a public meeting at Stonebridge Golf Club last Wednesday night. Residents voiced their concerns over a plan to shorten the golf course that winds through the community for the purpose of building 158 new homes. The meeting drew hundreds of local residents who shoe-horned inside the club’s banquet room.

A number of others, including city politicians, observed from the patio outside. “You’re stealing money from our pockets so that you can make a profit,” said one of the many local residents who was part of the long line-up that snaked along the outside of the room and ended at the microphone. The proposed development is at the southeast corner of the course, just south of Longfields Drive and just west of Prince of Wales Drive.

The new homes would be in Rideau-Goulbourn Councillor Scott Moffatt’s ward. A Draft Plan of Subdivision application has been submitted to subdivide the subject lands to enable the development of a residential community currently referred to as Stonebridge Phase 16. The proposed development includes detached dwellings and traditional townhouses as well as parkland. Access to the subdivision will be provided via a southern extension of existing Kilspindie Ridge at the northeast corner of the subject lands. The proposal includes a combination of townhomes and single homes. The proposal comes at a time when the Barrhaven

The MessengerRichmonHub.ca Syrian refugee family arrives in Richmond in time for Canada Day

By Stephanie Williams RichmondHub.ca It was a special Canada Day for a Syrian family that arrived in Richmond last month. The family, sponsored by Richmond Village Refugee Welcome, arrived at the Ottawa International Airport June 21. Heba, the first off the plane, was greeted joyfully by her sister, Sanna. They had been separated for five years. RVRW has worked on the immigration of the family of six from Syria to Canada since December, 2015. The time has been long but the wait must have felt endless for the family held up seemingly indefinitely in Turkey. The task has been arduous and complex. It was initiated at a tentative meeting called by Michel Dubord at St. John’s church hall in December, 2015, at which a group of Richmond residents determined to undertake the sponsorship of a family. Elizabeth Mann assumed the

leadership of the group and must be recognized not only for her resourcefulness and tireless determination to bring this undertaking to fruition, but also for building and leading the team that is Richmond Village Refugee Welcome. Under Mann’s leadership, team members have solicited donations and set up secure financial arrangements, run fundraising events , and accumulated the myriad items required to set up an apartment. Once the apartment was secured – it is in the very same building as Heba’s sister and her family live in – it was furnished and provisioned with basic supplies . But the most challenging aspect was the administration of the legal process required for the family to be admitted to Canada as New Canadians. The family have taken a few days to decompress and settle in to their new surroundings but now a new barrage of challenges arise. Volunteers Business cards Letterheads Envelopes Invoices Brochures

Rideau-GoulbournREPORT

Busy year for park renewals throughout Rideau-Goulbourn Ward It is a busy year for Rideau-Goulbourn parks. Blue Rock Park in Kars is currently undergoing renewal while staff work toward the renewal of the play equipment at Richmond Lions Park, in addition to the planned outdoor rink to be located there this year. Planning also continues on Sarah McCarthy Park in Richmond and Icy & Gordon Scharf Park in Manotick. All the while on Fairmile Road, we inch closer and closer to being able to add play equipment after the acquisition of some land and the progress on a road closure. With all of that going on, the City, working with Councillor Michael Qaqish’s office and our Rideau-Goulbourn team, have just embarked on an update to the Beryl Gaffney Park concept plan culminating in some new investments in the park. We had our public open house last week with over 60 residents in attendance. In the coming weeks, we will formalize the method for feedback. Please stay tuned to this column and that of the Manotick Village & Community Association for more information.

THIS MONTH by Larry Ellis the house periodically; lock the door and you are free for leisure - for a little while! Take the time to see the beauty of the stars when you are out in the wide open spaces in the

country during your holiday. Look up, on a gloomy night, watch the clouds separate and the soft light of the starry lamps gleam through for a moment then disappear, returning be-

fore long, glittering and twinkling even brighter than before. Have you ever thought that we need the night to bring out the stars? We all are called, at some time during our lives to pass through some dark nights of sorrow which bring out the virtues shining like stars, hard-

Summer in our part of Canada is usually described as the months of June, July and August. In summer the days are long and at noon the sun appears high in the sky. The sun’s ray’s fall quite directly on Ontario for much of the long day, and this of course accounts for the warmth. The days are longer because more of the Earth is reached by the sun. This means that any place in the north is touched by the Sun’s rays for a longer time every twenty-four hours, and therefore, has more daylight – a longer day. July and August are the typical vacation months, some will spend the holidays on the water, sailing or

Community draws McDonoughs to Manotick Frank McDonough looks around his new store and has a flashback. “I remember when this store was converted from a Loeb IGA to a Your Independent Grocer,” said the new co-owner of the grocery store in the Manotick Mews. “It must have been about 20 years ago. I was doing the conversions of the Loeb stores into Your Independent Grocer stores. I did the renovation for this store.” McDonough, like the store’s longtime owner and his former colleague Jamie Robinson, grew up in the grocery business. “I started working in my father’s store when I was eight,” said McDonough. “I was cleaning the washrooms and sorting out pop bottles. His store was at Bank and Heron, where the Shoppers Drug Mart is now.” That is not the only connection that McDonough has with Robinson. Their fathers were among the original Your Independent Grocer franchise owners. McDonough grew up working for his father, and then spent time as the dairy manager at the Bayshore store, working on the transition renovation team, and then as the store manager at Brown’s Your Independent Grocer in Stittsville. He and his wife, Andrea, also spent time in Kitchener, where Frank was working for Valumart, another Loblaw company. Frank and Andrea took over as owners of the Manotick store last month. They moved to the Manotick store from the Billing Bridge Your Independent Grocer. “There is such a different feel to this store,” McDonough said. “It’s a real community store. There are always conversations going on between friends in the aisles. We didn’t have

that at Billings because the customer-base was so transient, and everyone always seemed to be in a rush to catch a bus.” On Canada Day, Frank and Andrea made it a true family business, putting their three children to work handing out free ice cream cones to customers coming in from the hot weather. “We are meeting people every day,” said Andrea, who was an elementary school teacher before transitioning her career to join her husband in the grocery business. “The store is a real meeting place in the community.” Being a part of the community is something Andrea is focusing on. “It will take a while and we understand that, but we want to be involved in the community,” she said. “Being a part of the community is one of the things that drew us to Manotick and to this store.” One of the things that impressed the McDonoughs was the relationships the staff have with the customers. “You only get this in a community store,” said Frank. “The staff are part of the community, and they have friendships and relationships with the customers. For example, a customer will come into the meat department and the meat manager will know exactly what they want and the cut they are looking for. You

don’t get those kind of relationships in the city stores.” With a staff of more than 130, the McDonoughs immediately became Manotick’s largest employers when they bought the store. “The staff has definitely made the transition easier for us,” Frank said. “There is a lot of continuity, and Jamie’s brother and sister are still here, too.” The McDonoughs are still working on a plan to make some subtle changes and upgrades to the store. While they are looking for ways to improve the instore shopping experience, their industry is changing. On Wednesday of last week, they completed their first online order. “We see this as some-

thing that is going to grow,” Frank said. “People with families are busy, and the convenience of online orders is important. Some do their entire orders online, and some do just their dry goods because they like to come in for the produce and meat. Either way, it’s something we are ready for as it gains in popularity.” So whether you are picking up an online order or coming in to do your shopping the old fashioned way, be sure to say hi to Frank and Andrea McDonough. They may not have an ice cream cone to give you, but you will get a welcoming smile and a handshake.

Council Approves 10 Additional Police Officers

Last week, City Council approved the hiring of 10 additional police officers to deal with gun violence in Ottawa. The officers are expected to be in place in the fall. Growing concern regarding the increase in gun violence across the country has resulted in the announcement of a federal government grant program, with funding of $100 million nation-wide anticipated to begin in April 2019.

STEP to Focus on Impaired Driving and Red Light Running

Each month the Selective Traffic Enforcement Program (STEP) focuses on a specific issue. For the

month of July, they will focus on impaired driving and red light running. Between 2012 and 2016, there were 1507 collisions involving impaired driving, resulting in 647 injuries and 11 fatalities. Between 2016 and 2016, there were 3759 collisions resulting in 1562 injuries and 4 fatalities. Ottawa residents have identified traffic safety as a top priority and the Safer Roads Ottawa Program along the help of Ottawa Fire Services, Ottawa Paramedic Service, Ottawa Police Service, Ottawa Public Health and the Transportation Services Department are committed to using available resources to make Ottawa roads safer for residents.

Riverside South Community Design Plan Update

This week, Planning committee saw interim updates to the Riverside South Community Design Plan. In June 2016, Council approved an update to the Riverside South Community Design Plan (CDP). The changes to the location of major transportation systems within the community have resulted in the need to update the CDP. The CDP update process commenced late in 2017 and is to be completed in 2019, and will include a public consultation process.

MANOTICK MESSENGER

The MessengerCOMMUNITY

More than 50 at public meeting on Beryl Gaffney Park upgrades The 50 local residents who attended the public consultation on proposed upgrades to Beryl Gaffney Park want to see the existing master plan reworked. The plan, originally developed by the City of Nepean in the nineties, includes a softball diamond, amphitheatre, docks and picnic areas as well as additional parking lots. The City and Councillor Moffatt want to review the plan in the context of today’s environment and are looking for input on what to keep or remove. The residents, many from nearby streets and Nicholls Island, want the Park maintained in its natural state. They expressed safety concerns about boating, given the fast current in that portion of the river; erosion of the shoreline which is jeopardizing existing pathways; and parking for users of the park. They also expressed a need to create a sound barrier for traffic noise from Prince of Wales Drive and concerns about the increasing numbers of wildlife moving into the Park to get away from on-

going housing development in the area. The July 5th meeting was a starting point for a discussion on an updated master plan for the Park, which runs from the RVCA building on Rideau Valley Drive North to Stonebridge. The City will be posting information on its web site with contact information for providing input. Once the site is ready for review, we will be providing a link so that area residents can have a say.

Main Street Revitalization Initiative

The Task Force on Revitalization has received word that the City has approved $40,000 for improvements to the Village Core under the Main Street Revitalization Initiative. The funding will be used for new signage to direct visitors and residents to shops and servi-

ces on Clapp Lane, Mill Street, Beaverwood Road, Currier Street and Dickinson Street; an upgraded gateway with repairs to the wall and new lighting and gardens at Bridge and Main; and new garbage cans, benches and planters along Main Street.

Students Awards for 2018

Congratulations to Kate Chiabai and Bennett Harvey who have been awarded the Manotick Village and Community Association Student Award. The $500 Award recognizes one student from each of St. Mark High School and South Carleton High School who have volunteered many hours in Manotick. Kate attended St. Mark and had volunteered over 330 hours with Youth of Manotick Association, Watson’s Mill Mini Wheats Camp and the St. John’s Ambulance Pilot Program at the Manotick Legion. Bennett was recognized for his volunteer work with Miller’s Oven, Manotick Place Retire-

ment Home and the Manotick Arena. We wish them both success in pursuing their studies.

New development on Stonebridge Golf Course

An information session on June 27 on this new development to be built between Stonebridge Golf Course and Longfields (formerly Jockvale) at 2701 Longfields Drive drew a vocal crowd. The majority of residents are opposing the proposed 158unit subdivision of single homes and townhomes as it will change the layout of the golf course and eliminate views of the course for a number of residents who paid a premium for that view. Details on the development are now available on the City of Ottawa web site.

LRT Extension Riverside South - correction

We incorrectly named the proposed LRT Station on Earl Armstrong Road closest to Vimy Bridge as the Leitrim Station.

It is actually the Limebank Station. Manotick residents will be encouraged to use the park and ride at Manotick Arena and take the feeder bus to Limebank Station or drive to one of the other stations to catch the LRT. The extensions are to be completed by 2021. If you would like to provide feedback on the proposed extension, you can submit comments here: http:// www.stage2lrt.ca/connect/

Picnic in the Park and Soap Box Derby

There is still time to register for the annual Soap Box Derby, set for Sunday, August 26. And plan to attend the Picnic in the Park held in conjunction with the Derby. There will be crafts for children, face painting, corn, burgers and dogs and a fundraising bake sale as well as entertainment by Manotick Brass. The Derby starts at 9 a.m. and the Picnic runs from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in Centennial Park.

Longer weekend parking rules

It is nice to see the City allowing for 6-hour parking on weekends and statutory holidays on streets with no parking limit signs. This applies for the hours between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Previously the limit was 3 hours.

Around the Village

Watch for new culverts being installed along Rideau Valley Drive North between Manotick and Roger Stevens Drive as well as resurfacing along Rideau Valley Drive South south of Kars. Resurfacing of Rideau Valley Drive North between Roger Stevens Drive and Manotick is slated for 2019.

When the current boundaries were created in 2005, holes five through eight were considered to be outside the urban boundary. The urban boundary set the ward boundary lines. With the urban boundary changes that were approved in and around 2010, certain lands in Stittsville and Barrhaven that I now represent became developable, including this portion of Stonebridge. The intention is to correct these lines in 2019

with a ward boundary review. In the meantime, I will be working with Councillors Jan Harder and Michael Qaqish on the issues that impact our Barrhaven consituents.

PHARMACY Q: Is Sunscreen necessary?

DENTAL SERVICES

VETERINARY SERVICES

really

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

Q: What tips are there to help protect my pet during the summer?

A: Yes! We all know that sun exposure can damage skin. Sunscreen application should become a habit, especially in the summer months. Apply a generous Pharmacist layer to the face and exposed areas 15-30 minutes before going in the sun. This allows time for it to absorb into the skin and be effective. Reapplying sunscreen every 2 hours AND after water sports is required to maintain the SPF for the intended duration. Other sun safety tips include wearing hats, sunglasses, and long skirts or sleeves, staying hydrated and seeking the shade during peak hours between 10am and 2pm.

A: Regular dental visits are essential to your overall health and teeth. Let us know if you are nervous so that we can put you at ease during your visit. If you have any questions about procedures, please ask. There are also ways to relax during the appointment; listening to music is a great distraction so bring your ipod. Try deep breathing, focusing on our whole body, try to relax every inch of yourself. Caffeine can often cause us to be jittery so try to avoid caffeine prior to your appt. Many offices offer something commonly called Laughing Gas or Nitrous Oxide, which is safe for adults and children alike. It is easily administered and monitored by the dentist. Don’t let your fear of the dentist put your oral health at risk, call for your appt today!

A: Make sure your pet has access to water and shade at all times. When heat is high, walk during the cooler hours of the day. Sun burn is a risk for some animals. Talk to your veterinary team about Dr. Andrew Sparling prevention options for your specific D.V.M. pet. Hot surfaces can be hard on paws and their pads so be cautious again in the heat. If your dog is near water, make sure you know if it can swim or not - life preserves are very useful for some dogs. Control risks of external parasites (fleas/ ticks) and internal parasites (heartworm, roundworms etc). Careful about contact with wildlife - increased risk of disease transfer and possible wounds from fights. Contact your veterinary team to discuss your animals lifestyle and possible needs and risks.

The MessengerCanada Day Riverside South

The Junkyard Symphony provided entertainment for families at the Riverside South Canada Day.

Chelsea, Jullian and Rachel Rogers enjoyed the Canada Day festivities last Sunday morning at Claudette Cain Park in Riverside South.

Volunteers working the barbecue in the extreme heat had a tough job at the Riverside South Canada Day. Meat and buns were generously provided for the event by Moncion’s Your Independent Grocer.

Adam and Ali Moizin enjoy some Canada Day cotton candy.

Train rides through Claudette Cain Park were popular with the kids through the Riverside South Canada Day festivities.

With the extreme heat on Canada Day and temperatures exceeding 40 degrees Celsius, the water park at Claudette Cain Park in Riverside South was a great way to stay cool during the Canada Day celebrations.

Riverside South Canada Day volunteer Kim Lambe found a very Canadian way to stay in the shade and avoid the heat with her Canada umbrella hat.
