Capital Fair at Rideau Carleton Raceway begins Aug. 17 The Capital Fair at Rideau Carleton Entertainment Centre is just around the corner. This year’s fair will be held from August 17-27 at RCR, located on Albion Road, northeast of Manotick. “Every year, the fair gets a little bit bigger and a little bit better,” said Capital Fair General Manager Harley Bloom. “We are a not-for-profit organization, so all the proceeds and revenues generated from the fair go back into the program. Each year, we try to build as big of a program as possible.” While the Capital Fair has filled the void left by the absence of the Central Canada Exhibition in Ottawa, the fair is not the old Ex relocated to the raceway. “A lot of people think that we are the old Ottawa Ex,” Bloom said. “The dates are similar, but in reality, this is a continuation

of the old Gloucester Fair.” In 1998, the Gloucester Fair relocated to Rideau Carleton Raceway after outgrowing its original location at the Earl Armstrong Arena. In 2014, the fair changed its name to become the Capital Fair. Bloom emphasized that the fair is an affordable event for the family. General admission is only $4, and all-day ride bracelets, priced at $40, are available in advance until Aug. 16 online or at Quickie Stores for $28. The midway, presented by World’s Finest Shows, will feature 30 rides and attractions and will be the largest in Eastern Ontario this year. The fair will also include four Monster Truck shows, the Ultimutts Stunt Dogs, the Canadian Raptor Conservancy Birds of Prey Show, a Canine Watersports Competition, an arm wrestling championship tournament, agricultural exhibits and demonstrations,

the Xtreme Cowboy horse show, and the Rise 2 Fame Talent Show. The big stage will feature some local talent, as St. Mark graduate and nationally renowned recording artist Stephanie La Rochelle will be performing on Sat., Aug. 18, the second day of the fair. The fair opens Fri. Aug. 17 with Ambush followed by Bytown Lights. “There is a lot for the kids this year,” said Bloom, who added that there is a kids tent as well as an agricultural pavilion. Bloom added that one of the most special days every year at the fair is the special needs day. Over the past decade, the fair has been opened up to special needs children and families for a private party the day before the fair opens to the public. Last year’s Capital Fair drew more than 255,000 guests. For more information, visit www.capitalfair. ca.

Manotick’s Ellie Gadzos wants to ‘become famous’ Teen singer wins Bluesfest ‘She’s The One’ singing competition against national field

By Mike Carroccetto She’s the one. Manotick’s Ellie Gadzos emerged victorious at the RBC Bluesfest singing competition held on July 14. The contest pitted her against eight other talented young musicians from across Canada, including Ottawa. As festival director Mark Monahan announced her name as winner of She’s The One, what was Gadzos thinking? “Holy cow, this is cool,” recalled the 13-year-old island resident, “because I wasn’t expecting it.” Nick Descarie, coordinator for She’s The One contest, said Gadzos “showed she had the most artistic skill and the most potential for a marketable career in the music industry.”

He added that the judges were looking for someone who can sing and is a ‘true artist’. Those three judges were looking for someone with an incredible voice backed up by a moving live performance. That someone was Gadzos, who sang two songs -- ‘My Boy’, a Billie Eilish cover, then wowed them, obviously, with her performance of ‘Pilot’, an original song she penned herself. Gadzos says winning was a surprise because “there’s lots of talent here.” Since last summer, the fluently bilingual Gadzos has grown, not only as an artist, but also about six inches in height. Now standing about 5’8”, the competitive swimmer says she’s been writing and recording during the past year plus getting lots of attention

from producers, as well as other singers and songwriters. Gadzos says she a fan of the aforementioned Eilish, a teen-aged American singer. Moving forward, the Pierre-Savard high school student will just sing as Ellie. As the winner, Ellie will now get to produce a single for a worldwide release, fully paid for by RBC Bluesfest and the Cadence Music Group. She will also have the opportunity to perform on a stage during next year’s edition of RBC Bluesfest. The soon to be Grade 8 student says she thinks the judges liked her because of her look. “I looked like I was cool, I was just sort of chill and I think they liked that. I was different.”

After the fire: The rebuild begins for local dairy farmer By Charlie Senack Manotick Messenger

Almost a year after a devastating fire ripped through the dairy barn at Black Rapids Farm killing 80 head of cattle, Peter Ruiter is working hard to rebuild, and hopes to have operations up and running before Christmas. The new barn will be more technologically advanced than the previous one, and will feature robotic milking machines as well as a computer system which will monitor the cows behaviour. “The cows will wear a monitor that will tell me how many steps they take in a day, their temperature, there mobility,” Ruiter, 50, said at his family farm on Prince of Wales Drive on Saturday. “It’s actually quite amazing technology but not new in a dairy world. It’s been out there over 10 years, it’s just something that I can put into practice right now.” The new system also

means Ruiter will have to put in less manual labour, and figures he will go from working 80 hours a week to around 40. It will also add more flexibility to his life and will allow him to choose what hours to work meaning he will have time to go out and watch a show or hockey game, or attend his son Mark’s basketball games. The new barn is a bit bigger than the previous one built in 1850, and is expected to bring the number of cows from 45 to 65. Ruiter says the new barn is about 25,000 square feet, and milk production will increase by about 20 per cent. The Craig family were the original farmers on the land. Ruiter’s parents, Tinus and Milen, immigrated to Canada from the Netherlands in 1958 and started to work as hired hands on the farm right away. They took over the operations in 1962 when the NCC took over the land. September 8, 2017 started off like any other

day, Ruiter said. The doorbell rang at 1:03 pm, and by 1:07 pm, he was telling his cows sorry. “The barn was fully engulfed,” Ruiter said recounting that day. “The firefighters were here, but really just to contain the fire (so) it wouldn’t spread because there was really nothing to save.” In the past few months since his livelihood was lost, Ruiter has been helping out other farmers in the area with their crops and cows, and has also been touring parts of Ontario and Quebec seeing how other farmers are getting involved in modern day agricultural farming. He has been implementing some of those ideas around his farm. He said a few chan-

ges from the old barn to the new one will include being only one floor instead of two, and it will have large straight windows you can open in the summer to help air ventilation and create a cross breeze. It will also feature a sprinkler system to keep the cows cool in the summer. As far as the new barn being more fire retardant, Ruiter said there really isn’t much you can do to help protect the barn once it’s engulfed in flames. “It’s still the same barn except the cows will be held loose,” he said. “There is hope if you can get the gate open in time they will leave, but past experience shows cows don’t want to leave where they feel safe so they don’t venture out

Farmer Peter Ruiter has started construction on a new dairy barn less than a year after a devastating fire which razed the previous 150 year-old structure on Prince of Wales Road at Fallowfield. The new barn is expected to be operational by year’s end. Ruiter, age 50, is grateful for the outpouring of community support which helped make the decision to rebuild financial possible.

too much.” The foundation for the new barn was laid out at the beginning of May, and the beams started going up at the beginning of June. Ruiter said if all goes as planned, the

new barn will be up and running by Christmas. He added that he does still have a few pieces of charred remains from the old barn he would like to implement in the new one.

Trade Secrets experts explain the differences between threading and waxing Ask the Beauty Expert By Courtney Mulligan Trade Secrets This week we asked the Estheticians at Trade Secrets to help explain some of the most common questions and debunk some myths about hair removal.

Does threading hurt more than waxing? Removing hair is can be painful. Waxing removes a larger surface of hair quickly so it can be painful. Threading hurts about as much as plucking, but it’s much faster so you’ll spend less time feeling it.

How long does the hair need to be to get Waxed or Threaded? Threading can be done when there is 1/8” of hair. For waxing there needs to be ¼” of hair

Both facial threading and waxing take the same amount of time to perform. Does Waxing or threading last longer? On average both lasts 3-4 weeks, but it really depends on how fast your hair growth is. The hair will grow back finer than before. Is threading more expensive than waxing? At Trade Secrets, we offer both for the same price! Trade Secrets offers esthetic services everyday of

the week to fit your busy schedule. You can walkin or call to book an ap-

pointment. It only takes a couple minutes and then you’re on your way.

Does facial Threading take longer than Waxing?


Is Waxing or Threading better? Threading offers a few benefits over waxing. Threading is better for sensitive skin because it is 100% natural. Threading uses no chemicals or creams that may cause irritation. There is little contact with the skin. Many people who breakout from waxing tend not to breakout from threading.

Threading is more precise than waxing. The esthetician removes one line of hair at a time and can give you the desired shape you are looking for. Waxing removes hair with one strip, and often stray hairs are then plucked. Threading is better for aging skin. The thread pulls only the hair not on the skin. Wax pulls the skin and hair, which is why it leaves redness on the area afterwards.

What is threading? - Threading is a hair removal process that uses thread to remove facial hair. It can be traced back to ancient Eastern cultures and is becoming very popular here in Canada. The esthetician takes two long twisted pieces of thread and removes sections of hair by rolling it over your skin and catching the hair, removing the hair from the follicle in one fluid, scissor

Mateo’s Legacy Ottawa South United was proud to support Mateo’s Legacy, and the Make-A-Wish Foundation as their charitable partners for the Boys Challenge Cup event. Ottawa South United was able to make a donation of $1650, with additional fundraising and canteen sales totalling over $2200 raised last weekend. Mateo Aceval was a member of OSU for five years and remains deeply missed by all of his teammates and coaches. For Mateo, Make-A-Wish was the magic wand that granted his brightest hopes during his difficult journey. Mateo’s ultimate wish was for every sick child to have something to look forward to, especially after all the bad days they are forced to face both in and out of the hospital.

a healthy supply of jobs and general economic stability. The unemployment rate decreased 0.7 per cent to 5.6 per cent in 2017 – lower than both the six-per-cent provincial rate and the 7.3-per-cent national rate. The number of commercial services and amenities located within a 30-minute walk of each light-rail transit station has also increased. Ottawa’s population grew 1.1 per cent in 2017, rising from 968,580 to an estimated 979,173 residents. Migration was an important factor in that growth, with 9,888 people moving to Ottawa – an increase of 69.7 per cent over the previous year.

Eagles at provincials The East Nepean Minor Little League Eagles, made up of players from Barrhaven and the Manotick-Osgoode areas, are off to the provincial championships following a thrilling three-game series with the West Ottawa Twins at Pinecrest Park last weekend. After dropping the opener 7-1 Friday, the Eagles bounced back with a 10-8 win Saturday morning, and then won the series Sunday with an 11-6 victory in a game that was stopped twice for rain delays. While the Minor Little Eagles are heading to Windsor this weekend for the Ontario championships, the Major Little League Eagles were in Timmins this week for their provincials. The Eagles opened the tournament with a 23-0 win over Windsor Saturday, and then beat Port Arthur 8-0 Sunday. The winner of the tournament heads to the Canadian Little

League Championships in Montreal next weekend, where a berth in the Little League World Series in Williamsport, PA is up for grabs. The Junior

Eagles were playing in the Ontario final against Oakville Monday, after our press deadline. Watch our Facebook page for more info.

Fall fair time is just around the corner! There are more than 220 “fairs” that fall under the Ontario Association of Agricultural Society. The country fair is a cornerstone of Canadian culture! It is a magical event that must be experienced by everyone at least once; I love the fall fairs, you will too! The sweet smell of cotton floss or the sound of the merry-go-round can stir up childhood memories of the country fair. It may take you back to a time when life was simpler, when there was an appreciation for things created by hand or nurtured in earth by the sweat of the brow. For many the grandstand shows are the highlight of the fair, and people plan their holidays around this event. I remember one Richmond Fair when in High School in Manotick, grade 11 or 12; students were given the day to attend the Fair; 4 of us did and ended up walking home in the late afternoon, a “fair walk” from Richmond to Manotick! The 4 were 2 boys and 2 girls! The first destina-

tion for many entering the fairgrounds may be the building that displays artists, crafters, experts in culinary arts that challenge judges. One display may be an array of colourful handmade quilts that have taken many hours to create, stitch by stitch. After being displayed, some move on to national competitions. The organizers work hard to add new and exciting events every year to keep the show fresh. Many lo-

cal organizations participate with information displays - watch for these and see your friends in action. Visit the stables in the crisp air of a fall morning and watch as owners meticulously groom majestic horses, readying them for many equine events. Maybe next-door roosters crow, and rabbits, ducks, geese and fluffy chicks nestle in the straw of their cages. Also on display for visitors to critique are the fruits, vegetables, flowers, grain crops and harvest crops. Many dollars in prize money are given out for pickles, pastry, carvings and other things – First Place Prize Winner rib-

bons are a treasure to the contestant! Upcoming Fall Fairs “round these parts” include: Navan Aug. 9 -12; Merrickville Aug. 10 – 12; South Mountain Aug. 16 – 19; the Capital Fair at Rideau Carleton Raceway Aug. 17-27; Russell September 6 – 9; Spencerville September 6 – 9; Richmond September 12 – 16; Carp September 20 – 23; Metcalfe September 27 - 30. If you’ve never visited a fall fair, make this the year – you’ll be glad you did. For the rest of us, it’s always time to return!

River Road, Eagleson road closures to affect Rideau-Goulbourn residents In recent weeks, I have used this column to touch on some construction projects throughout RideauGoulbourn. This week, I would like to notify residents about two projects not in Rideau-Goulbourn but that will certainly affect the commute of some of our residents. In Riverside South, Urbandale will be extending the trunk watermain, sanitary and storm sewer on River Road south of the Summerhill intersection. This is a substantial construction project to convert the road to a full urban cross section with three new deep sewer crossings. The depth of excavation means that the contractor cannot provide a safe active lane of traffic through the construction zone. As a result, a full closure of River Road will be required.


WARD REPORT by Councillor Scott Moffatt

The intent would be to complete the works in July and August 2018 taking advantage of the reduced traffic during the summer holiday period. We acknowledge that the closure of River Road will be disruptive, however due to depth and size of the trunk sewers we cannot safely install the infrastructure without full closure of River Road. Residents of Manotick will have to detour using Rideau Road and Spratt Road to travel north. For Goulbourn residents, you have likely noticed the closure of Eagleson Road, between

1618/1622 Roger Stevens Drive

The City of Ottawa has received a Site Plan application to accommodate the development of a four-island gas bar, 1 storey convenience store and a drive-through facility. For long time residents of the area, you will know this property as the former site of Driscoll’s Pizza. For those newer residents, it is located just west of Dorack Drive, immediately to the west Tubman’s Funeral Home. It was most recently an art studio. The existing joint access with the subject property from Roger Stevens Drive would remain. The Site Plan application has been filed to accommodate the redevel-

opment of the subject property. The proposal includes the demolition of the existing buildings and the development of a new one-storey convenience store, four-island gas bar, and associated drivethrough facility. The site will be serviced by private well and septic system and will have a parking lot, which will accommodate 20 parking spaces. This proposal is good news for those worried about a similar application coming forward for the southeast corner of Roger Stevens Drive and Rideau Valley Drive South. Through hydrogeological studies, it was determined that corner was not suitable for a service station.

6420/6431 Ottawa Street

Mattamy Homes has submitted a revised

Draft Plan of Subdivision for their land at 6420 and 6431 Ottawa Street, known locally as the Western Development Lands. The proposal is for: • 848 single family homes • 129 townhouses • 48 back to back townhouses Also contained in this plan are a 3.75 hectare community park co-located with a 2.48 hectares school block, a 0.8 hectare parkette and 19 public streets. Of some importance to note, the lands adjacent to properties along Queen Charlotte and Ottawa Street, which were originally proposed to abut a stormwater management pond, are no longer part of this submission.

Hope Side Road and Fallowfield. This section has been closed for a culvert replacement project. The road is closed for safety reasons. The culvert is located on Eagelson just north of Fallowfield. Last summer, two steel plates were installed on top of the culver to maintain the integrity of the road. Unfortunately, the culvert deteriorated quicker than anticipated and will be replaced immediately. The detour is via Hope Side Road to Old Richmond to Fallowfield. The closure is expected to last two weeks. The City has requested the contractor to expedite the construction and open the road as soon as they can. While the work north of Fallowfield Road is carried out, the City will also be replacing a culvert between Akins Road and Fallowfield Road under Eagleson

As many of you may recall, Mattamy Homes owns the southern portion of the Western Development Lands. Caivan Communities are currently developing the lands to the north of this proposal. The southern edge of the subject lands abuts the Jock River flood plain. These plans can be viewed at Ottawa.ca/ devapps.

RVCA Watershed Statement

This statement is to advise that the low water status in the Rideau River watershed is now at Moderate severity. Rainfall in the last 90 days, measured at climate stations in and around the watershed, is about 60% of the normal amount for the time of year which is the threshold for Moderate Severity Low Water. Rain presently forecast for much of next week will be welcome but is not expected to have a significant impact. Longer range forecasts indicate temperatures above normal and precipitation below normal through the rest of the summer and into the fall. Although daytime highs greater than 30 degrees appear to be passing, it will still be warm enough for evaporation to continue to reduce water levels on all lakes and streams. Levels and streamflows are below normal for the time of year but

are still above critical thresholds. Flows in smaller streams will be raised briefly if the short range weather forecasts prove to be accurate. Rideau Canal reservoir lakes are at levels typical of later into September. However, there have been no reports of insufficient draft on the Rideau Canal system relayed to the Conservation Authority. Conditions are expected to decline generally. Conservation Authority staff continue to monitor conditions and communicate with water managers throughout the watershed. Updates to this message will be issued as conditions warrant. Water conservation is recommended for everyone within the Rideau River watershed including residents on private wells inside the City of Ottawa boundary. Those who have permits for taking water from surface or groundwater sources are encouraged to reduce their actual taking as much as possible. Residents on private well systems are also urged to use water conservatively. Using rain barrels to capture any rain to water lawns and gardens. Avoid using pressure washers to clean houses, driveways, decks and fences. All these actions contribute to the conservation of our water resources. If you have any comments, questions or concerns, please feel free to email me at Scott.Moffatt@ottawa.ca or contact me by phone at 613-5802491.

Tick season raises local concerns about the prevention of Lyme disease By Preet Sidhu Longfields Pharmacy Tick season is upon us, and we are frequently asked by our customers about the correlation between ticks and Lyme disease. Ticks become infected by feeding on the blood of infected wild animals (e.g., birds, rodents). Infected ticks move from vegetation to the host as the host brushes by. Tick saliva has anesthetic properties and bites may

go undetected. As the tick feeds, it becomes engorged and considerably larger in size. Most humans are infected through bites of immature ticks called nymphs. Nymphs are generally less than 2 mm in size (about the size of a poppy seed) and feed during the spring and summer months. Although adult ticks can also transmit Lyme disease, they are larger than nymphs (about the size of a sesame seed) and

therefore more likely to be discovered and removed before transmission of the bacteria. Adult ticks are most active during the cooler months of the year. Blacklegged ticks are found in forests, shrubs, tall grasses and leaf piles; they are present in rural and suburban settings. Blacklegged ticks bite the host and may feed for several days, then drop off. In Canada, Lyme disease is caused by spirochete bacteria Borrelia

burgdoferi, which is transmitted by infected ticks. Generally ticks/ nymphs must be attached for 36–48 hours or more before B. burgdorferi can be transmitted. The greatest risk of tick bites occurs between April and October; the majority of cases of Lyme disease in Canada occur during the month of July. Examination of a dog for ticks after being in a tick-infested area is an important precautionary measure to take in the

prevention of Lyme disease. Key spots to examine include the head, neck, and ears. If untreated, symptoms of Lyme disease occur in overlapping stages and include early localized, early disseminated and late disseminated disease. Prevention is the best key: wearing hat, longsleeved shirt, and long pants tucked into socks or boots. Light-colored clothing makes the tick more easily visible before

it attaches itself. DEETcontaining repellants are thought to be moderately effective in the prevention of tick bites.
