Members of the Manotick BIA were joined by the staff and volunteers at Watson’s Mill last week for the official unveiling of the new mural along Mill Street. Artist Ryan Smeeton created the mural, tying the village’s past to its present. The mural was funded by a grant from the City of Ottawa, which was made available through an initiative offering grants to BIAs throughout the city for the mural project. Once complete, the mural was put in place by Impact Signs of Manotick. Jeff Morris photo

The MessengerCOMMUNITY Ghamari hosts Agriculture Minister in round table with Carleton farmers By Jeff Morris

Farmers and members of the South Carleton agricultural community were on hand Fri., Aug. 22 for a round table discussion with Carleton MPP Goldie Ghamari and Ontario Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs Minister Ernie Hardeman at the North Gower Client Services Centre. “This has been great,” Ghamari said following the discussion. “We are going to continue working on this and continue the conversation. I’m here to be your voice, and I will continue to be working with the Minister.” The round table gave an opportunity for local members of the agricultural community to share their concerns and opinions with both Ghamari and Minster Hardeman. Engaging with the farmers living their lives in the industry is something Hardeman said is important and necessary. “The most important thing a new minister or a new government can do is to meet with people,” he said. “You have to find out exactly what the problems are before you can start addressing them.” Hardeman is holding a number of similar sessions across the province in order to get a handle on the issues that

farmers in today’s market and economy are facing. Some of the problems are consistent throughout the province. “The amount of regulation and duplication in our system is an issue, and we all knew that,” he said. “But it’s important to hear from different farmers exactly how much that impacts them. Sometimes, it takes away from them wanting to be involved in a government program.” Hardeman is more than familiar with the importance of the agriculture industry in Ottawa and Eastern Ontario, and has been in the community a number of times throughout the years. He said that the creation of a larger City of Ottawa after amalgamation has created an Ottawa with a huge rural agricultural industry, but sometimes it is one that is not paid attention to within Ottawa’s urban boundaries. “It’s important to come here and hear from the farmers in Ottawa and to find out what their concerns are,” he said. “Farmers (in the City of Ottawa) are a very vital and important part of our agricultural community in Ontario.” While Hardeman said that many of the issues facing local farmers are consistent with the province, some are unique. “There is a little bit of

Soap Box Derby and Picnic in the Park draw big crowds

In spite of a rainy start to the day, several hundred people came out to enjoy soap box car races and a BBQ with family activities on Sunday, August 26. Free corn was popular this year and we ran out for the first time in years. There were lots of activities for the children, thanks to local sponsors, and the bake sale for YOMA was a popular stop. The Soap Box Derby has become a premier event on the soap box circuit with racers coming from Montreal, Barrie and Gatineau as well as Manotick. A total of 51 racers in 41 carts participated in the morning and afternoon heats. The race winners were: 1st place - Emily MacDonald, 2nd place - Tyler McEvoy, 3rd place - Jonathan Forse and Jayden Hunter. In addition to winners for speed, awards were given for most creative cart: 1st - Etiene Colton, 2nd - Madox Leduc, and 3rd Emma Arbeleche. The Most Patriotic cart was driven by Evan Frechette while Xavier Pijuan won for the best engineered cart. Congratulations to all the winners. The MVCA would like to thank the many volunteers that make these events possible, particularly Allan Haan, Chair of the Derby Committee, and Jan Hynes, Chair of the Picnic Committee. We would also like to thank the many businesses and the Manotick BIA who provide financial or inkind support. We could not do it without you!

Why has Bridge Street remained a designated truck route? The Editor, It was interesting that in the last edition of this paper, both the Messenger editorial and a letter to the editor from candidate for councillor David Brown made reference to the possibility of increased truck traffic on Bridge street as a result of the construction of the proposed Amazon warehouse at 5731 Boundary road. Whether or not that would actually happen is unclear, but I think instead

of wringing our hands and bemoaning the inevitability of a non-stop parade of 53foot trailers through Manotick, we should be asking ourselves the obvious question. Why does the City of Ottawa insist on keeping Bridge street as a designated truck route? Back in 2008, former Rideau-Goulbourn Councillor Glenn Brooks asked staff to assess the possibility of removing Bridge street from Ottawa’s network of truck routes as a

result of safety concerns. At that time, staff’s opinion was that it would place an undo burden on heavy truck operators, by forcing them to go south to Roger Steven’s Drive or north to the Hunt Club bridge in order to cross the river. The waste of fuel, time and additional greenhouse gases generated meant it was simply not feasible at that time, but staff pointed out that the issue could be revisited once an additional bridge had been constructed.

As we all know, that additional bridge became a reality in 2014 when the Vimy bridge was opened and yet in the four years since that time, Bridge Street remains a designated truck route, for no good reason. It’s rather troubling to note that when it comes to

Forgetting what is behind and focus on what’s ahead

As we get older, three things happen. First, your memory goes and I can’t remember the other two! Everyone forgets - where they put their wallet or their keys - but is seems to get worse with age. As we age, our brain shrinks, this starts in the early twenties. There are three different kinds of memory. The first is memory for how to do things, this stays pretty stable. We usually remember how to tell time, how to

drive a car or how to swim. The second kind of memory is memory for facts and words. Most often we can still remember the capital city and know what a camel looks like! The third kind of memory is the memory of past events in our life. This memory seems to be the first to go - where did I park the car - what did I have for supper last night? At some point between age 30 and 70, this kind of memory begins to decline. Also as we


THIS MONTH by Larry Ellis age, it’s common to have a bit more trouble learning something new - yeh! We wouldn’t go into a boxing ring with a 22 year old because we know our body is not what it used to be. Similarly, our mind gets a

bit “rusty”, but compared with our physical speed and strength, our mind holds out like a champion. There are other medical conditions that can lead to memory problems - like stress always interferes

with memory. If you have had big changes in your life, the stress can impair your memory. Also poor eating habits and medication side effects can harm the memory function. Sometimes a memory problem is more hearing or seeing problem. You can’t remember what you don’t hear or don’t see. If you get lost driving in a familiar place or your own address, your memory may be impaired and it is time seek medical advice.

We all have memory glitches, more as we age, but don’t give in. Keep your mind sharp with constant use, stay alert, have conversations, read, get out, reach for the life in front of you!.

Q: How did I get this cold sore what can I do to help it heal?

Q: Why is it important to wear a mouth guard while participating in sporting activities?

Q: Are animals allergic to insect bites?

A: Cold sores are blisters on or around the lips caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV-1). The virus is contagious and spreads through contact with the lesion kissing, sharing a fork, beverage Pharmacist or towel. After first exposure, the virus lays dormant in nerve cells and may recur at times of stress, fatigue, fever, sun/ wind exposure. Upon recurrence, a tingling sensation may be felt followed by blister formation, rupture, scab and healing all of which lasts 1-2 weeks. There are topical creams over-the-counter to ease the discomfort of the blister and prescription medicines that may shorten the duration of the cold sore. Your phamarcist would be happy to discuss the various options.

A: A mouth guard is a soft plastic or laminate device used in sports to prevent oral injuries to the teeth, mouth, cheeks, tongue and jaw. Children and adults involved in contact or non-contact sports should consider wearing a mouth guard to prevent injuries to the mouth. The types of dental injuries that can occur are chipped or broken teeth, fractured crowns or bridgework, lip and cheek injuries, root damage to the teeth and fractured jaws. Any athlete may be at risk for oral injury and any injury can be prevented with the use of a mouth guard. Child or adult, a mouth guard is essential for all athletes.

A: They can be. Allergic reactions are varied from mild local redness and irritation to anaphylactic responses. Some dogs or cats are more sensitive than others. Ants tend to cause small bites on the belly. Dr. Andrew Sparling Wasps and bees can also cause D.V.M. local problems or more significant swelling which may become urgent depending on location and severity. Fleas usually are just locally irritating but some animals suffer from a disease know as Flea Allergy Dermatitis which can be horrifically itchy and cause the animal to self traumatize. Treatments depend on the animal, the bug in question and the level of the immune response to the bite. Talk to your veterinary care team about options for your pet if you are concerned about insects in your area.

He served with the Trench Mortars through the Battle for the St. Eloi Craters in April, 1916, and then the latter stages of the Battle of Somme, specifically the Battle for the Sugar Refinery, where his unit was on the front lines. The Battle of Somme, which was the first battle in history where military tanks were used, was the bloodiest battle in human history at the time. In 1917, he was awarded the Military Cross.

danger of being cut off, he continued to fire his guns with such effect that the enemy attack was broken. Throughout the operations, this officer displayed the greatest courage and cheerfulness in encouraging his men under most trying conditions.” He fought with the Canadian Light Trench Mortar Battery again in 1918, and was returned to England and then discharged after suffering from pneumonia. After the war, he married Muriel Clara Craig, and he owned and operated Jago Construction in North Gower. At the age of 57, he was too old for combat duty in World War II, but he served as an engineer and worked on the construction of transit camps. He retired from the military in 1945 and had achieved the rank of Major. He lived on Church Street in North Gower, until he died at the National Defence Medical Centre on Oct. 5, 1971. He is buried in his family plot at the Holy Trinity Anglican Cemetery in North Gower.


One of South Carleton’s military heroes of the past will be honoured as the ribbon cutting ceremony for Ralph Jago Way in North Gower will take place Fri., Sept. 14. Mayor Jim Watson will officiate the event, and the Master of Ceremonies will be Dr. Bill Tupper.

Dining Out g

n i r u t a e F

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,

2364 Roger Stevens Drive, North Gower

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.

President’s Message Welcome to this year’s 174th Annual Richmond Fair. As the Richmond Agricultural Society is a volunteer organization, I would like to thank our Board of Director’s and our volunteers who put countless hours into planning and organizing the Fair every year. Without the dedication and enthusiasm of our volunteers, the Fair would not be possible. As the village of Richmond celebrates 200 years of history, the Richmond Fair has taken the opportunity to modernize features of the Fair with the hopes of continuing to offer activities and family favorites to our growing community. This year, in honour of Richmond’s bicentennial, the RCMP Musical Ride will perform their iconic Sunset Ceremony on Wednesday evening. On Thursday, come out to watch our Smash’em Up, Crash’em Up Demolition Derby. On Friday night, the Richmond Fair welcomes back the crowd favorite - Ambush! Saturday afternoon entertainment features Ottawa’s own, and versatile, Tony True Band. On Saturday night, our head-liner, Emerson Drive, will be performing on stage in the Beer Gardens. Also, on Saturday night, Robertsons Amusements will be sponsoring a Fireworks display. Throughout the weekend, Fair-goers will be able to purchase and enjoy helicopter rides over the skies of Richmond. In Kiddyland, our littlest Fair-goers will be entertained by the talents of magician Michael Bourada. We are also welcoming back our long-time friends the Little Buckaroos! As always, face painting and the petting zoo will be in Kiddlyand. Throughout the weekend, those with a sharp eye will be able to participate in the Outdoor Backyard Axe throwing competition. Be sure to stop by the Homecraft building to see all of the other fantastic exhibits submitted by our community. In the Agricultural Awareness building, patrons are invited to learn about our agricultural heritage and farming practices from all of the experts that are on hand to answer your questions. Throughout the weekend, you will be able to watch Cattle, Horse and Sheep shows! All of this would not be possible without the tremendous financial support of our Sponsors. Their generosity ensures that the volunteers of the Agricultural Society can host the Fair year after year while offering family fun and entertainment to our community. With so much to see and do, our family welcomes yours to the 174th Annual Richmond Fair. DaviD Brown
