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.

Worker makes allegations sexual harassment, racism against Manotick company The Ottawa Citizen has reported that a female construction site clean-up worker is seeking $40,000 in damages from a Manotick construction company after filing a complaint with the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal. Belia Mejia, who worked for Versatek Building Corp., filed the complaint in February. She alleged harassment that included physical threats, crude racist and sexist comments,

and an allegation that two male co-workers had followed her home to see where she lived. The allegations were detailed in the complaint, which awas obtained by the Citizen for the story reported on and written by Aeden Helmer. None of Mejia’s claims have yet been tested by the Human Rights Tribunal. Versatek’s parent company, Bayview Kanata HoldT:5.063” ings, Ltd., responded

to the allegations in a detailed response filed with the tribunal and obtained by the Citizen. They denied the most serious allegations, while dismissing others as part of the working culture at a construction site. Mejia told the Citizen that she formally complained on Jan. 10 – the company denies this in Helmer’s story – as the harassment escalated. She claimed that the foreman and

she sent a text to her boss informing him she would not be returning to work due to sexual and racial harassment. The Ministry of Labour visited the Versatek site on Jan. 31.

The company also said it had enlisted a third party investigation into Mejia’s treatment at the worksite. Interviews with Mejia and her co-workers were conducted.

2018 Food Aid Day and Mayor’s Rural Expo

This annual tradition and significant fundraiser takes place this year on Friday, June 1st between 10:00am and 2:00pm at Ottawa City Hall. The event is an opportunity for urban residents to get a taste of rural Ottawa and while they are there, partake in a fundraiser BBQ cooked by THE WORKS. The cost of the BBQ lunch is $10 and includes a burger, side and drink (debit, credit or cash will be accepted). Music will be provided by New Country 94. As always, the event will also feature the celebrity cow milking competition.

The rural tradeshow, kicking off at 10:00am, features farmers, businesses and organizations promoting unique goods and services. Booths will be located at Marion Dewar Plaza and inside City Hall at Jean Pigott Place. Last year the event raised $106,000 in support

of Food Aid; a program run by the Ottawa Food Bank to purchase and process beef from local farmers. Beef adds nutritious protein to the diets of families requiring this support while boosting the domestic market for cattle.

The MessengerCOMMUNITY “Of Convocations, Commencements, Graduations and Proms”

We are in the season of convocations, commencements, graduations and beginnings! I have had the privilege, some years ago, of attending Algonquin College Convocation as a member of Algonquin staff. Kiwanis Key Club members at various High Schools will be on my mind at their Commencement. Limos and girls in long dresses, handsome young men dressed to the nines arrive and are seated. Proud parents and friends, in limited numbers, have been invited to witness the “beginning of another chapter of life”. The stage is decorated with flowers; staff is seated ready to present the appropriate certificates and diplomas; the band plays, the valedictorian addresses the

gathering, then the parade starts with the traditional shake hands, best wishes, perhaps a few tears and back to the seat holding that precious piece of paper. Each year at this time we await the smiling photos of the mortarboard wearing graduates; from the Tiny Tots program to the University Graduate, each one an eager learner awaiting to begin the next step on their life discovery journey. Oh, how many things to be learned, how many adventures lay ahead.

The roots of education go back to the very beginnings of history. Our highly complex and expensive educational system has been built up over a long period of time and owes much to the past. Education came with a “price” over the years, with all the young people who had dreams but never had the opportunity to learn more, when their lives were snuffed out by wars. In the free society in which we live, every citizen has the opportunity to develop his or her abilities to the limit of their capacity. If we are to compete successfully in the world, governments cannot afford to neglect any of the divisions of our educational system – primary, secondary, college and university.

Applecrate Galleries to host art show featuring works of students Some of South Carleton’s finest young artists will have their works on display in a professional setting this month. Applecrate Galleres on Manotick Main Street in Manotick will be hosting Selection: A Collective Art Show featuring the works of students from South Carleton High School, Fri., June 15 from 6-8 p.m. Guests will enjoy an evening of creative indulgence, as students from South Carleton High School (SCHS) will feature

over 50 original works. The work is made up by Mrs. Barbier’s students in grade 10 art and grade 11 photography. Guests are invited to come and enjoy the light refreshments, social exchange, relaxing atmosphere, and of course, beautiful artwork of our talented students. This group exhibition will feature over 50 different artists from SCHS and will include materials ranging from digital photography, to acrylic paint, charcoal, and sharpie. The

works on display will typically consist of portraiture and abstracted images; contrast is one of the dominant elements driving these works. The art show has plenty to offer patrons looking for an alternative to regular evening outings. Guests can expect to experience stunning works of art while meeting and greeting many of the young artists behind the work. This exhibition is an all ages event and families are welcome. Admission is free!

Rideau Archives, Rideau Valley Wildlife Sanctuary and the Goulbourn Museum. For disability-related accommodation required to participate fully in this event, please contact the City at doorsopen@ottawa. ca or call 3-1-1. For more information on this event, please visit Ottawa.ca/ doorsopen.

at 2397 Roger Stevens Drive between 8:30am and 1:00pm on Saturdays until October 6th. For more details, please visit www.northgowerfarmersmarket.wordpress.com.

Convocations and commencements are in the purest sense markers of beginnings. They give voice to our life’s work and

sound the starting of all that can be.. I would like to dedicate this “This Week This Month” story to all the graduates and anyone

who is embarking a new stage of their life and wonders about the mountains that lie ahead – all the best wishes!

It’s time for the Ontario government to buy back Hydro One The Editor, My good friend Andy Braid has managed to hit the nail on the head once again in his recent letter about Hydro One. Well, sorta. At least somewhere in the general vicinity of the nail, if not actually on the head. Hydro One does not generate power itself, except in the far north of Ontario, but instead runs the transmission lines and local distribution systems that bring power to our homes from the power producers. Hydro One is, or should be,

a natural government monopoly, in the same way that police forces and the military are government monopolies; after all, wherever you live, there is only one set of power lines coming to you. You can’t switch to an alternative supplier as you can with your phone company. Hydro One was only sold off because Kathleen Wynne’s government, after years of fiscal mismanagement, was so desperate for new ways to raise money that they started to sell off the family fur-

alternative, Hydro One is contractually required to accept wind power whenever the wind blows, regardless of whether cheaper power is available from other sources, or whether it actually needs the power at the time. Since wind is often strongest in the middle of the night, when power demand is very low, Hydro One is frequently in the position of having to sell excess power outside Ontario, typically to the US. The price they can get in the middle of the night is very low, and is sometimes negative, i.e. Ontario has to pay US States to take our power. Meanwhile, of course, the wind energy

companies are still being paid 11-13 cents per kWh. All this, of course, is reflected in our hydro bills. The only way to bring back sanity to our hydro rates is for the government to buy back Hydro One, and give it the mandate to accept power at all times from the lowest cost producers, whether from nuclear, hydroelectric, fossil fuel, wind, solar, or burning old tennis socks. If wind and solar can survive commercially under these conditions without government subsidies, all well and good. If not, goodbye to a failed experiment. Roger Graves North Gower

Happy FatHer’s Day Make his first Father’s Day special

Dads are often the first heros in their young children’s lives. Dads chase away ghosts in the closet, let their daughters dance on their toes and teach their sons how to win the heart of their first crush. The first Father’s Day a new dad spends with his growing family can be quite memorable, as celebrating one’s fatherhood for the first time is a unique and special time. Spouses and other family members can go the extra mile to make this year that much

more special for first-time fathers. · Let Dad sleep in. Chances are Dad is enamored with his little bundle of joy, but it’s well-known that being a new father often means sacrificing sleep time especially for the first several months to a year of that child’s life. Enlist the help of a family member who can be on baby watch while Dad gets to sleep in on the weekend of his big day. With some extra sleep, Dad can enjoy Father’s Day that much more. · Create a first-year

memory book. Take the time to put together a scrapbook of the photos and moments baby and Dad have gotten to spend together. So much focus is often placed on a new baby and his or her mother that Dad may be left playing second fiddle. Make it clear that fathers are key to their children’s development and happiness, too. · Make a baby keepsake. Use washable ink so that baby can sign a Father’s Day card with a hand or footprint. The tradition can be repeated year after

year until the child is old enough to write. · Go overboard on gifts. The idea isn’t to buy Dad’s love, but Dad’s first Father’s Day is a truly unique time. On behalf of his firstborn, purchase a few different gifts - those items that he has been interested in buying but has resisted in favor of saving money for new onesies and burp cloths. Or invest in one special event gift, such as tickets to a game to see his favorite team or a concert to catch a favorite band. · Boost his ego. Get

matching T-shirts for baby and Dad with cute memes and sayings, such as “Couch Potato” and “Tater Tot.” Father’s Day comes once

a year. However, a father’s very first Father’s Day occurs just once. Use the opportunity to pamper Dad so he can savor this truly special experience.

Summer Camps

Summer camp options abound Summer camp is a beloved tradition in many families. Many parents of young children fondly recall spending their summers at summer camp, where they made lifelong friends and learned the finer points of roasting marshmallows and competing in threelegged sack races. Parents looking for the right summer camp for their kids will soon discover there are various types of summer camps, each offering youngsters something different. The following are some of the summer camp options parents can expect to encounter as they search for the right campe for their kids. Day camp Day camps are not overnight camps, which means kids will return home each night rather than sleep over at camp.

Day camps typically offer many of the activities people have come to associate with camps, including crafts, sports and even day-trips to experience local culture or attractions. Many day camps are co-ed, and counselors typically live within the community. Faith-based camp Faith-based camps offer many of the same activities as more traditional summer camps, but do so while simultaneously offering campers the opportunity to celebrate and further explore their religious beliefs. Some faithbased camps may focus heavily on religion, incorporating faith into daily camp activities, while others may be more subtle with regard to integrating religious beliefs and lessons into camp activities.

Sports camps Some summer camps focus on a particular sport, catering to young athletes who want to further develop their athletic talents. Sports camps may or may not feature guest lectures and lessons from notable local athletes and coaches, with some even providing instruction from current and/or former professional athletes. Some sports camps are overnight, while others are day camps. Family camps Family camps are opportunities for the whole family to enjoy the summer camp experience. Family camps typically tailor their activities around tasks families can complete together, with counselors providing assistance when it’s needed. Family camps may be faith-based or secular, and families

typically stay overnight, sleeping in facilities on the campsite or in lodging away from home. Special needs camps Parents of children with special needs can still send their kids to summer camp, as there are many

camps that cater to such youngsters. Special needs camps may cater to campers who are blind, deaf, learning disabled, or mentally or physically disabled. Staff at special needs camps typically undergoes

extensive training, which helps to calm some of the fears parents may have about leaving their special needs children at camp. Facilities at special needs camps are often built to accommodate the specific needs of campers.

What do you enjoy reading for pleasure? “I have a bit of a crazy schedule that doesn’t give me much time for reading, but I very much enjoy fiction that mirrors issues that take place or have taken place in the real world; books like Room, Nineteen Minutes, Unbroken, and The Help. I like to read poetry

as well. I also think sharks are pretty cool, so I read the Meg Trilogy by Steve Alten. I am pretty excited for the movie that’s coming this summer.” Who is your favourite author? “My favourite author is probably R.H. Sin, who is actually a poet, and a very talented one.” Accomplishments: “As of recently, I haven’t been singing much, but I have placed in over ten vocal competitions throughout the years. I have sung the anthem twice for the City Council meetings, volunteered with the City of Ottawa on several Christmas Parade floats, and step danced at the Irish Tea Party that is put on at Town Hall in Metcalfe. I’ve also maintained Honour Roll throughout my high school career. Last year, I was selected for the role of the Wicked Witch of the West for our school’s production of “The Wizard of Os(goode)”. I have also participated in Relay for Life since

tailed, brilliant processes and organisms that go on for life, to continue every day. It’s hard to put into words how fascinating it is to me. I’ve also acquired a newfound joy in math. It was never a subject I liked very much, but it was proven to me that a teacher can make or break a subject. This year I had a teacher (Mr. McEwen) that showed everyone all the beauty in the math, in the processes and the algorithms, the joy of finally figuring out a problem. It made all the difference in the world to be shown such patience and kindness, and because of it, I have learned to actually enjoy calculus.”

I played on the varsity Soccer Team for two, as well as house league soccer for two years and competitive soccer for one. Since grade nine, I have been a part of my school’s Humanitarian Club, and as of grade eleven I’ve been co-chair of the club. We host a variety of fundraisers every year to raise money for the We Foundation. We are currently still fundraising to build a

school in Kenya. Up until this past Christmas, I had been one of the vocalists for my school’s Jazz Band, rehearsing twice a week at 7am. This year, I joined Student Council and was nominated Grade 12 representative. I help with planning events such as dances and pep rallies. I have also been a Link Leader the past two years, which is a title I’m proud to carry. As a Link Leader it’s my responsibility to help the grade nines adjust to the exciting new environment that is

high school, which can be scary for some. We try to make the transition from elementary school as easy and as fun as we can, all while teaching them valuable life lessons through fun activities. Outside of school, I enjoy writing; I am actually in the midst of putting together a poetry book. I’m also very big on music. I took piano for a number of years, but these days I enjoy singing and playing guitar, and I have recently began playing again for the elderly at the Osgoode

Care Centre. Oh, and I have a horse named Tally. We used to compete in Barrel Race competitions.” Why did you get involved in what you do? “I never really was super involved until I got to high school. Socializing was always a little tricky for me, but getting involved in grade 9 was something that helped me with that so much. It ended up giving me a sense of character, and taught me a lot about time management. Eventually, I actually found my

passion for helping others; and to this day that passion is one of most important things to me. I discovered for myself how easy and rewarding it is to make the world even the tiniest bit better for someone else, and how much we can accomplish and change when we come together. I get involved because I am inspired to teach others that they are capable of so much more than they could ever believe.” Career Goals: “I have accepted an offer to study

Neuroscience next year at Carleton University. My hope is to do combined honours in neuroscience and biology. I’m still unsure of where I would like to end up, but I sometimes dream about running my own lab, kind of like a mad scientist (but in a good way). I know that I want to be successful in life, because I’d like to own a lot of dogs (I really love dogs). I also know that whatever I do, I want to be able to do two things; a) make a difference in every way that I can and b) help others.”

PHARMACY Q: Can I stop my medication for hypertension now that my blood pressure is back to normal? A: If you have been prescribed medication for hypertension it is quite likely that it will continue for the rest of your life. Blood pressure is considered high when the force of blood pumped Pharmacist by the heart against artery walls is above the average of 130/80mmHg. If your reading is normal now it is likely because your medication is working, so it is important that you take it every day. Diet and lifestyle can contribute to hypertension, so, in order to keep your heart healthy, stop smoking, limit alcohol and salt intake, be active, and lose weight if suggested. Monitoring your blood pressure can be done with the physician, pharmacist, or at home if it is important to know how your medications are helping. And remember, always ask your pharmacist if you have questions about your specific medications.

Q: l my child need early orthodontic treatment? A: Your child may need to be assessed around the age of 7 if you see signs of malocclusion (bad bite). Common signs of needing orthodontic treatment are: early or late loss of primary teeth, mouth-breathing, speech difficulty, protruding teeth, and teeth that do not meet in a normal way. Starting orthodontic treatments early may prevent the need for more extensive treatment later. Early treatment is usually shorter in time, because the teeth are still developing, and the jaw is growing, and this makes treatment easier to address. If you are concerned about the development of your child’s teeth, please let your dentist know.

Q: What should I do when there is a pet food recall? A: When you hear about a recall, go to the pet food company’s website and make sure your pet’s diet is not one of the recalled brands. Safety and transparency from a food company is Dr. Andrew Sparling paramount, and only a canine or D.V.M. feline nutritionist or a member of your veterinary care team can help you understand what is important for your pet’s nutritional needs. Don’t be misled by savvy marketing! Discuss your pet’s nutritional needs with your veterinary team, then make sure the company you choose has a solid safety record and is transparent about all their nutritional information.

Richmond barns challenged to celebrate heritage with quilts Members of the Richmond Agricultural Society have “quilted” the Dining Hall with their first barn quilt and are encouraging more barn owners to create them for “Richmond Barns”. Owners taking up the

challenge have a great opportunity to make a visual statement about the rural heritage of the community. This barn quilt is to celebrate the loyalist settlers of Richmond … red and grey for the uniforms, yellow

and green for the fields of corn and blue for the Mighty Jock River. So, the challenge is out for other barns around Richmond to get “quilted”! The design and colours were selected with the assistance of

Laura Boyd, made and donated to Richmond Fair Homecraft by Peter and Alison Tranter. Thanks to Marg and Rick Todd for help with the installation and to Dale Green on the tractor.

The Richmond Agricultural Society has “quilted” the Dining Hall for the 200th anniversary of Richmond.

King’s Your Independent Grocer helps build momentum for Richmond 200th A community without businesses that care and support local activities wouldn’t be much of a community at all. We are fortunate in Richmond to have businesses that understand the importance of community, businesses that will step forward to meet any number of challenges in community building.

King’s Independent is one such business. Chris King, owner of King’s Independent, is the type of businessman who never seeks personal recognition yet he deserves much more. He understands the importance of giving back to the community and just acts, often without anyone asking.

The latest example of independent action taken by Chris is displayed in the photo above captured and submitted by Tino Bevacqua of the Richmond200 planning committee. Hats off to Chris for demonstrating such tremendous community spirit, leadership and generosity. Everyone is invited

to celebrate Richmond’s bicentennial on June 1517, 2018 which is being held at the Richmond Fair grounds. Follow the HUB for more details very soon on the events planned for this celebratory weekend! It promises to be a blast! In addition to the banner at the store, the 2018 Organizing Com-

mittee wishes to thank Chris for his recent and generous sponsorship of several anniversary events. In this vein, there are still sponsorship opportunities for the June 15-17 weekend celebration. All other local businesses are encouraged to show their support too. Contact Tino at

tbevacqua@rogers.com for details. Volunteers are needed as well. To volunteer for the big weekend contact Tino at 613-838-3466 or tbevacqua@rogers.com. Finally, to purchase 2018 memorabilia visit the store at Royal Lepage Team Realty office at 3441 McBean Street, Richmond.

Local marathoner pays tribute to her late father at Ottawa Race Weekend By Jeff Morris Diana Devine always gets emotional when she passes Parliament Hill during the Ottawa Race Weekend Marathon. “There is one stretch of the route that goes over the Portage Bridge across the Ottawa River,” she said. “From there, while I am running, I will be looking at the spot where the accident happened. It’s always very emotional for me when I go by there.” The accident Devine is referring is the one that claimed her father 13 years ago. Rico Ian-

ucci, then a 65-year-old construction worker, was working on restoring the library on Parliament Hill. The backhoe he was driving suddenly switched into gear and fell off the cliff behind the library. Devine was pregnant with her third child at the time. “My father could have retired at any time, but he loved to work,” she said. “When it happened, it was a shock to us all.” Devine, who ran her first marathon in 2007, connected with Threads of Life, a charitable organization that offers support and counseling

for the families of victims of workplace tragedies. She said the charity has been remarkable in helping many families deal with tragedies. She has raised more than $20,000 for Threads of Life, and each year, she wears a special red t-shirt with her father’s picture on it and the slogan, “Running for Rico.” She has even worn cloth from his old shirts during the run. “It’s been a great way to remember him,” she said. “Raising awareness for workplace accidents helps, because maybe you can reach someone who might be-

happening.” Devine, who works in the administration office at St. Mother Teresa High School, always receives strong support from family, friends, co-workers and students.

“There are always people out there to cheer me on and support me,” she said. “But that one stretch of the course really gives me time to reflect and remember my father.”
