A little over a year has passed since the Veterans Way Memorial committee decided to push for a Memorial Park. At the last council meeting on Nov.8 the Chair of the Veterans Way Memorial Committee, Owen Fitz’Gerald presented the council with more detail about the memorial park idea. The positive response from council members has committee members anxious to move forward with the idea. The committee had outlined four different phases to get through before they can have the memorial park request finalized. The plan calls for the creation of a park space at the entrance to Veterans Way at the Ferguson Forest Centre. There is a little over an acre of green space which organizers feel will be a perfect place to put the park. The space is on the east side of County Road 44 and extends from the side of the highway right up to the Ferguson Forest Centre greenhouses. Currently there are three flagpoles on the property. The request comes at an opportune time as news of the federal government’s intention to set aside several million dollars for a Community War Memorial Program has been announced. J. Morin Photo/Advance Staff Fitz’Gerald said that the committee has passed along their information to the program. The government has stated that they will be registering applications for the program over the next few This Nov. 11 was marked by excellent weather for the Remembrance Day ceremonies at months. the North Grenville cenotaph which was attended by hundreds of residents. This soldier guarding the cenotaph is from the North Grenville District High School and was one of See PARK page 2 many who came to be part of the ceremony.

Council has positive response to Memorial Park request “The reaction was very positive,” said Fitz’Gerald, “all the councillors were in favour,” he added. North Grenville deputy mayor Ken Finnerty feels that the Memorial Park project is a worthwhile one. “The park would be at the entrance way to the Veterans Way, he said, adding, “It is an ideal spot for it.” Finnerty explained the presentation was so well done that all council members had little trouble getting on side with the idea. “We agreed in principle to it,” he said. The Memorial Park Committee has been lining up their support for the park idea for the past year. The committee has stuck to a straightforward process in getting the support they need for the park. The first step for the committee was called Phase 1. This part of the plan involved the Veterans Way Memorial Committee putting together a proposal presentation. The next step was asking the Ferguson Forest Center if they would be willing to give their approval in principal to the park idea. A second similar request was put to the municipality. In each case the support for the park was reflected in the willingness at each level for agreement. Phase 2 involves preparing a site plan and a business plan for the project, as well as assuring continued support from the Ferguson Forest Centre and finally getting approval from the North Grenville Council for the idea. Phase 3 and 4 of the plan takes the community and the committee all the way to the summer of 2011 when the park is expected to be finished. In Phase 3 the campaign for funding from the community begins. Sponsors for benches and a flagpole will be found and the selection for trees and shrubs and a plan for the physical shape of the park will be made. In phase 4, which brings the project to the spring and summer of 2011, trees and shrubs will be planted. The flagpoles and benches should be in place and the memorial cairn will be erected and finally the installation of traffic control boulders or posts will take place. The council will be finalizing their support for the Memorial Park over the next few weeks.

Connecting the dots
Dessertfest and stone carving
All of us can probably claim similair knowledge of the same issues that race to the front of our minds and the media each day. There is the never-ending concern about war and all of its many faces and voices. Poverty has become a popular word we all hear about along with the million and one solutions we can try to use to prevent it. Food and water shortages along with the thousands of people who die each year from a lack of both has become a common evil we acknowledge but cannot stop. These days the opportunity to do something about the way the world works and actually make a difference is more obvious than ever before. All of the issues we encounter traditionally have been separated and categorized without any thought given to how they are all connected. The family discussions at the dining room table have always been focused on one issue or another, but not on how they are all connected. The latest boost towards the idea of having a meaningful chat about the world’s ills is the fact that the ideas and philosophy needed to make a difference is within the reach of most of us who have the wealth to do something about them. The acceptance of the connectivity of the global village is the first step in solving many of the world’s problems. Understanding the relationship between clean water and good health in general is key to understanding how to stop disease from winning battle after battle in third world countries. Grasping the agricultural process and what an efficient agricultural economy can do for the rural parts of the world that are now suffering from little or no infrastructure is the only real chance underdeveloped countries have. Aid money pouring into less fortunate countries in Africa is crucial to their salvation however the real riches we have at our disposal is knowledge. There are a few local organizations and individuals who have been sharing their knowledge with African states. From the University of Guelph Kemptville Campus to the Ryan’s Well Foundation and on to individuals who have found their own way to pass on information to those who need it, the idea of connecting the dots between money, knowledge and effort is making all the difference.

Remembrance Day is not a holiday The day dawned bright and clear, amazingly pleasant for our Nov. 11, Remembrance Day ceremonies. In years past we have often experienced the dull, chilly days of November and felt the sting of rain combined with a sharp fall breeze. The number of people gathered to pay tribute to our veterans was truly remarkable. The cenotaph was surrounded by school children, youth and adults. One had to wonder what would happen when the crowd was asked to stand silently for two minutes. As the little grade one children stretched to glimpse the wreath laying ceremony, representatives from schools, businesses, town council, and law enforcement agencies stepped forward to place wreaths at the base of the soldiers’ monument. It occurred to me that arranging ourselves so that there was ample space in the front for the children, would be a positive gesture. The children and youth to-day are genuinely interested in learning about the sacrifices made during the wars and we as adults, should foster and encourage that
spirit. Which leads me to recall that this past week the media has been reporting the there is a movement to declare Nov. 11 a statuary holiday in Ontario. One had only to look at the people gathered at the cenotaph and realize that if Nov. 11 is made a holiday the large crowd of school children and teens would be absent. No doubt many of their parents, as government employees, had the day off this year. But there was no evidence that they were present in any significant number this past Thursday. We are kidding ourselves if we think families will come together to the ceremony. Many of you can think back to your school days and recall when Nov. 11 was a holiday. It was a day to sleep in, watch some t.v, perhaps shop, but for the most part, we, the students of the day, were not at the local remembrance services. In fact when I attended school we learned very little about the wars. By contrast the youth of Ontario are currently involved in numerous activities designed to educate them Vice-President & Regional Publisher Chris McWebb email@example.com Regional General Manager John Willems firstname.lastname@example.org

about the battles in which Canadians have been involved. Those schools which, due to geographic restrictions, cannot attend formal services of remembrance hold their own assemblies, with readings, songs and the two minutes of silence. Excellent resource materials have been made available by the Royal Canadian Legion and the Government of Canada. Much time and effort has been put into developing worthwhile, meaningful, programs of study for our Ontario youth. By declaring Nov. 11 a holiday, I am afraid the importance of the day would be diminished. It would be just another day off to play video games, hang out at the mall or loaf around home. So I suggest that before we jump to the conclusion that a holiday is the way to show respect, we give some thought to what is currently occupying our students on Nov. 11. The system is not broken. There is nothing to fix. Beth VanderMeer Kemptville , On

every hour, by the end of 24 hours, a single cell could proliferate to more than eight million. This is why we must exercise care in the way we store and handle the foods we eat. Leaving certain foods sitting at room temperature, or allowing a picnic lunch to sit in the trunk of a car on a hot summer day is just asking for trouble. If you are ever tempted to test suspicious foods by tasting them: donâ€™t do it. If you are on a trip and someone tries to entice you, against your better judgment, into eating at a rather â€œdodgyâ€? restaurant: donâ€™t do it. Even if you eat only a small amount of a spoiled food, it may not take long for the â€œbugsâ€? to reach a dangerous level. Remember, the â€œbugsâ€? know all about the power of doubling. In spite of potential food safety risks around us, we do not need to become obsessive or paranoid about it. There are some fundamental precautions which you can easily take. Storing your food under the appropriate conditions, cooking your meat thoroughly, and taking proper care with the water you use, especially when travelling, are just a few things you can do to ensure your safety. Not only that, but you will also be slowing down the doubling process considerably. You may want to think about another example of the power of doubling. Consider earning money starting with one cent on the first day of the month and doubling it every day for the entire thirty-one days. The payment on the last day is astonishing!
There is a story concerning the invention of the game of chess. Although it may be entirely fallacy, it is still quite interesting. As the story goes, an ancient emperor issued a challenge for someone to develop a game which required great skill and concentration to play. When the game of chess was presented to him, the emperor was so impressed that he granted its inventor anything he wished as a reward. After some careful thought, the crafty fellow uttered his simple request. He asked for one grain of rice for the first square of the chess board and the subsequent doubling of the number of rice grains for each additional square. The emperor considered this to be an amusing request and promptly granted the wish. Filling in the first row of eight squares was a trivial task - one rice grain on the first square, two on the second square, four on the third, eight on the fourth square, and so on. The eighth square held only 128 grains and the total for the entire row was a mere 255 rice grains. By the end of the second row, the sixteenth square required 32,768 rice grains and there was a total of 65,535 rice grains. Of course this amount could no longer fit on the chess board and the pile beside it continued to grow at an alarming rate. As the pile grew, so did the emperorâ€™s grave concern about the deal he had struck. After a few serious calculations, it became apparent that it would take over nine quintillion grains of rice to meet the demands of the sixty-fourth square. Thatâ€™s a nine with eighteen zeroes after it! The total number of grains of rice from all 64 squares would total well over eighteen quintillion. There were not enough grains of rice in the entire world to equal this huge number. While we may never encounter the power of doubling on a scale such as the emperor, this type of growth rate is present in the world around us. Many of the microorganisms present in our food and water grow through a process of splitting. One cell becomes two, these two split and become four, and so one. Under favourable conditions, the time between each splitting can be relatively short, which is rather worrisome. Another troubling thing is that we cannot see these microorganisms 423487-45-10 nor detect their presence until the danger level has been exceeded. In the case of contaminated water, it takes a population of about one million microorganisms per millilitre before the water starts to become cloudy. This translates to about five million per teaspoon. Just the thought of five million living cells in a teaspoon of water is mindboggling. When microorganisms are present in solid foods, we have absolutely no way of seeing them. If a harmful bacteria doubled
The Accidental Farmwife: Steve the Suffolk
In the process of putting the flowerbeds to bed for the winter, I decided to rip out some of the overgrowth of Virginia Creeper from the stone fence. The long, curling vine lay in a heap in the middle of the yard and I stared at it, wondering if I could channel the spirit of Martha Stewart long enough to transform the vine into a crafty Christmas wreath for our farmhouse door. I told the Farmer not to drag it off to the burn barrel: I was going to make something out of it. He looked at me as if I said I was going to give birth to triplets. “What. I can make stuff. Just you wait.” I did try to wind it into a wreath but I couldn’t get the tangle to form a circle
shape. I decided the wreath makers had secret tools and implements that I did not possess. Then I went shopping at Old Porch Primitives in Oxford Mills. Every time I go into that store, I see something that makes me cry. Simple little wooden signs declaring: “All because two people fell in love” and “Could I have this dance, for the rest of my life?” Honestly. I am such a mush. I love that place. Debbie had hung a simple strand of grapevine between the rafters, wound lights around it and dangled metal
stars from its curves. I bought a spray of stars and went home, armed with inspiration. I now have a homemade swag of vine, fairy lights, metal stars and ornamental sheep on my sun porch. And if you haven’t gathered from the last three paragraphs, I’m darned proud of it. Now if I can just figure out how to get my solar Christmas lights to The Accidental work, I’m ready for the holiday season. Farmwife On the livestock side of Diana Fisher things, the Farmer has decided he is tired of Dorset sheep. They grow great big pompadours of fleece, and their young often have difficulty finding the teats in all that wool. I personally find them very cute, but I guess that doesn’t count for much when you have to shear them. My husband decided to sell Rambi, the Dorset ram, and to buy a black-faced Suffolk to bring - Sharing Rural Pathways about change in our herd. On the way to Maurice and Joyce Open Houses Seguin’s farm Sunday morning, the The Public Open Houses are being held on: Farmer cleared his throat. “Can I just ask that you do not give this ram a stupid For the Osgoode Pathway: For the Prescott-Russell Pathway: name, like Rambo or Rambi?” Osgoode Community Centre Sir Wilfrid Laurier Stupid? “What would you like me to 5660 Osgoode Main Street, Secondary School call him?” Ottawa 1515 10th Line Road, Ottawa “Well, I call all my rams Johnny.” Tuesday, November 30, 2010 Tuesday, December 7, 2010 I told the Farmer that I thought that 7:30 to 9 p.m. 7:30 to 9 p.m. was ridiculous and not very original. or Each ram should have its own name. Sawmill Creek “Okay,” I said, “What should we call Community Centre him, then? Steve?” I joked.
3380 D’Aoust Avenue, Ottawa Thursday, December 2, 2010 7:30 to 9 p.m.
So now we have a 10-month-old Suffolk named Steve. The ram was obviously raised with love and trust, by Grama Joyce. Her tame goats and lambs gathered around, nibbling on our jackets and fingers as we put a collar and lead on our new ram. Steve allowed himself to be led up the ramp into the back of the truck. On the way home, he commented on every pothole and bend in the road. “It’s okay, Steve. Almost home,” I said. Back at the farm, we helped Steve to hop off the back of the truck and into the lambing pen, where Rambo and Rambi were already happily ensconced in their catered hotel. The two older sheep crowded to the corner of the pen and craned their necks to see the newcomer as he was released into his quarters. They lifted their snouts skyward to catch his strange scent. The Farmer tied a bell onto Steve, thinking it would keep us from being taken by surprise. “Don’t get yourself into a corner with this one,” he warned. I looked at Steve. He approached and put his soft muzzle into the palm of my hand. “He doesn’t like his bell,” I said. I might have to help that jingling thing to go missing without a trace at some point. I can’t wait to see the black-faced babies we will have in April. If anyone is interested in adopting two little male pot-bellied pigs, I can hook you up with their owner. They need to be in a winterized shelter. Dianafisher1@gmail. com.

The City of Ottawa is currently upgrading the former Osgoode and Prescott-Russell rail corridors to rural multi use pathways to give residents year-round recreation options. The City is developing usage policies for these pathways, and this meeting is your chance to provide input on what these policies should be. In addition to input from residents and other stakeholders, issues related to safety and technical limitations of the pathways will be considered in developing usage policies for each pathway. Staff will present the proposed policies to council early in 2011. Pending approval, the policies could be brought into force starting spring of 2011. Both pathways will be just over 20 kilometres in length with stone-dust surfaces approximately three-metres wide. The Osgoode pathway runs from Leitrim Road (near the new OC Transpo Park & Ride) to Buckles Street in the Village of Osgoode. The Prescott-Russell pathway runs eastward from Anderson Road, then just south of Navan to the City’s eastern boundary. Why Attend? The purpose of these meetings is to provide: • Descriptions of the new pathways • Shared use examples for the new pathways • An opportunity for you to ask questions • An opportunity for you to have input on the usage policies for these pathways
Need more information? If you are not available to attend the meetings or would like additional information, please visit the project web page at ottawa.ca/ruralpathway or direct your comments and questions to the project manager listed below. Presentation materials for the meetings will be available on the project web page after November 26, 2010.

Nicolas Ruszkowski VP, Communications Ottawa Hospital This week, we remember the veterans who served us in World War I, World War II, or more recently in places like Afghanistan. My thoughts go out to my maternal grandfather, Guy de Puineuf, a veteran of the French Resistance in World War II. I remember the kindness with which he shared his war stories. I remember the day I learned he had a heart attack. And I remember the look on his face – a combination of courage and fear for the journey ahead – when we said goodbye before his multiple bypass surgery. He survived his heart attack and lived another nine years. His operation was a success. Or was it? Half of heart attack survivors suffer permanent damage that can make it harder to run, walk, or do everyday activities. That’s because heart muscle that dies during a heart attack is replaced with scar tissue, which weakens the heart’s ability to pump blood through the body. The things my grandfather loved doing, like hunting or cycling, became far more difﬁcult. It meant a reduction in the quality and, ultimately,
New research in the ﬁeld of regenerative medicine may help change this. If it does, it could happen at the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute (OHRI). Dr. Duncan Stewart, CEO and Scientiﬁc Director at OHRI is leading research that asks “what if we can help the heart repair itself?” The question could be lifted right off a Star Trek script. Instead, it is the basis of a new therapy and an upcoming clinical trial developed by Dr. Stewart. The therapy involves harvesting “regenerative cells”, sometimes called adult stem cells, from the blood of patients a few days after their heart attack. Then, growing the cells in a lab, where they would be given genes that make them more powerful. Finally, cells would be injected back into the patient’s heart in order to get rid of scar tissue and regenerate healthy new tissue. Dr. Stewart’s clinical trial begins later in 2011. It will be the ﬁrst in the world to test a combined cell and gene therapy in people with heart disease. It will include 100 patients in Ottawa and two other Canadian cities. To ﬁnd out more, please visit www.ohri.ca/ centres/StemCellResearch/default.asp Nicolas Ruszkowski is VP, Communications and Outreach at The Ottawa Hospital. Each week, he will share behind-the-scenes insight from the hospital. E-mail him your questions or comments at email@example.com

at the A.M. Barr Arena just outside of Kemptville on Nov. 20 and 21. “It will be a day of education and fun for the whole family,” said McFadden. The event is not a horse competition. Instead it will combine education along with networking. The admission is free but McFadden hopes that all those who attend will bring along a food donation. The donations will be
passed along to the Knights of Columbus. McFadden explained that there is nothing like this for the area. While there will be 40 vendors on the site promoting anything and everything related to horses, visitors will also be treated to seminars about their favourite equine subject. The event kicks off on Saturday with indoor eventing fol-
lowed by voltiging. Next up at the arena is a RCMP question and answer period. There will be subjects such as Tennessee walking horse, Icelandic’s, reining, dressage presented by Oxford Ridge Stables, and presentations by Kim Robitaille and John and Josh Lyons. Later in the afternoon there will be presentations ranging from infrared therapy to farm insurance.
On Sunday afternoon there will be a polo demonstration put on by the Augusta Polo Club and gymnastics presented by John Philips. While parents have educational fun with their favourite topic about horses, children will have a great deal to do as well. There is a Sunday Kids Zone. Children can play educational games, and have fun at the same time.

New councillor promises better representation DANIEL NUGENT-BOWMAN
Brooks – who was first elected in Rideau Township in 1977 – as a result. Brooks came in second with 26.48 per cent. “I would be cocky if I said I was going to win by that much,” Moffatt said, noting Brooks and long-time Richmond volunteer Bruce Webster as respected challengers. “There’s no way. Never in my wildest dreams imagined that would I have been as successful as I was. “Sometimes I look back at the results of the polling numbers from poll to poll. It’s a big shock for all the sup-

But, he was pleasantly surprised. Moffatt won by receiving 52.64 per cent of the vote, knocking off Glenn

This time, the North Gower resident said a key to victory was not just concentrating on Manotick and Richmond, where there are nearly 5,000 eligible voters, but by listening to the needs of other communities like Kars, Aston, Fallowfield, Burritts Rapids as well. “I’ve said many times that you could win this election by targeting Richmond and Manotick.”

On a rare Tuesday night game, Kemptville welcomed the Smiths Falls Bears to North Grenville Nov. 9. After starting to turn around their recent misfortunes, the 73’s hoped the Bears were what they needed to keep it going. In order to commemorate those who made the ultimate sacrifice for us, the pre-game ceremonies featured the Kemptville Legion Colour Party accompanied by bugler Jess Kellar. The ceremony featured the playing of the Last Post followed by a minute of silence and then Taps and O Canada. The Bears scored the only goal of the first period to take a 1-0 lead. In the
second period, less than a minute in, Mark Hough tied the game for the 73’s with a power play marker. But Smiths Falls regained the one goal lead a minute later. They then added two power play goals before the period was over to carry a 41 lead to the dressing room for the second intermission. In the third the teams exchanged goals with Alex Brenton scoring for Kemptville. The Bears took the victory with a 5-2 decision. 73’s Mark Hough was named the game’s third star. On Friday, Nov. 12, Kemptville traveled to Hawkesbury to play the Hawks. The game was a close hard fought game with each team scoring once per period until just after the thirteenth minute of the third. The

Hawks scored what turned out to be the winning goal when the puck went in after bouncing off a Kemptville player in front of the net. Jake Clark, Mark Hough and Nick Duhn scored for the 73’s. Kemptville out shot Hawkesbury and deserved a better fate. Sunday, Nov. 14 saw the Cornwall Colts come to town. This was the event that the Salvation Army chose to kick off the annual Kettle Drive. Fans were entertained by the band playing Christmas carols before the game. At the start of the game a minute of silence was held in memory of Daron Richardson, daughter of Ottawa Senator’s Luke Richardson, who lost her life this past week. After a scoreless first period, 73’s

Jake Clark scored his fourth of the year but the Colts tied the game with a power play goal before the end of the frame. In the third, Nick Duhn notched his fifth of the season to put Kemptville back out in front but the Colts were again able to tie the game. After a scoreless overtime period, the game was to be decided by a shoot out. Cornwall came out victorious when their sixth shooter scored the winner. During the first intermission, Royal Lepage Gale Real Estate kicked off the Mountain of Toys Campaign for this year. Staff members, Peter Valdstyn, Kelly Van Herpen and Judy Littau, drove the trailer out on the ice where fans could place the donated toys. The entire 73’s team came out from the dressing room and placed toys on the trailer as well. This week’s action sees the Smiths Falls Bears return to Kemptville on Tuesday, Nov 16. Game time is 7:30 p.m.. On Friday, Nov. 19, the 73’s travel to Smiths Falls in a home ice rematch. Come out and catch the excitement!

The team claimed the first prize cheque of $5,000 in the 5th Anniversary of the Royal LePage OVCA Women’s Fall Classic held at the North Grenville Curling Club. In her quarter-final game McCrady knocked off last year’s runner up Lisa Farnell 5-2, disposed of 2008 Champion Rachel Homan 7-3 in the semi-final and defeated 2009 Northern Ontario Women’s Champion Tracy Horgan 7-5 in the final. McCrady broke the championship game open in the sixth end. Facing one rock buried, she made a brilliant raise takeout with her final stone to count three and take a 6-4 lead. Horgan and her teammates, Jennifer Seabrook, Jenna Enga and Amanda Gates fought back with one in the seventh end and forced McCrady to make a hit and stick with the final rock in the final end of the 2010 event. Curling fans could not have asked for a better final. Barb Kelly and her teammates Jennifer Harvey, Brenda Wills and Janie Wall were the only team to defeat McCrady in this triple knockout event. Barb is a member of the North Grenville Curling Club. Kelly was defeated in the semi-finals by Hor-

Youngest Mayor in Ontario to take office in North Dundas
Kemptville Advance - NOVEMBER 18, 2010
Newly elected Mayor of North Dundas, 22 year old Eric Duncan shakes hands with Prime Minister Stephen Harper. Duncan is the youngest elected mayor in Ontario, and will be graduating from Carleton University with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science this month November
ADVANCE STAFF How many people can say that they’ve been elected mayor before graduating from University? Eric Duncan can, who at 22 years old was elected mayor of North Dundas on Oct. 25, weeks before his graduation from Carleton University with a BA in political science. The North Dundas native said that the reason for his election into office was twofold. “The message we were communicating with voters was the need for new blood, new ideas, and new energy. That was a theme we used in the campaign. The second thing we did was we stayed positive. We didn’t attack our opponents, we didn’t mud sling or talk trash. People at the local level hate that stuff,” he said. Duncan got his start in politics through volunteer work with various organizations. “I volunteered with the South Mountain fair when I was 13 years old,” he said. “I got involved and am still a member with the rotary club in Chesterville, the hospital foundation and its gala committee. It’s that sense of community and volunteerism that interested me in council and I saw that as an extension of public service.” One of Duncan’s main goals is to start off with an orientation and improve com-
munication within council and with the public. He said that he also wants to modernize the structure of council, in addition to improving roads, economic development. “I’m only one of five votes,” he said. “I need the support and to work with my colleagues to get stuff done.” Duncan currently lives in Winchester, having bought his first home there last winter. “I’m always constantly amazed at the people and service clubs,” he said. “In my job, I see a lot of communities and the have the opportunity to network outside North Dundas. I was constantly amazed at how successful our service clubs are and our churches are. We have a good thing going in North Dundas, we just need to promote it and let other people know it.” In his spare time, Duncan is a self-professed “political junkie,” and stays on top of all three levels of Canadian government, in addition to American politics. Duncan also dismisses concerns that his young age means that he doesn’t have enough experience to hold his current position. “I’m hoping this precedent setting case of me becoming mayor will open the door for other young people to get involved, or encouraged to get involved,” he said. “Age or gender has nothing to do with a person’s qualities and their leadership abilities.”
Multi-Use Pathway public meetings There are 2 Multi-Use Pathways being constructed in rural Ottawa. Along with our Pathway from Buckles Street in Osgoode to Leitrim Road, another Multi-Use Pathway is under construction from Anderson Road to Navan. The City of Ottawa is currently upgrading the former Osgoode and Prescott-
Russell rail corridors to rural Multi Use Pathways to give residents year-round recreation options. The City is developing usage policies for these pathways, and is holding 3 Public Meetings to allow residents to provide input on what these policies should be.

Local writers tell their stories at book fair
AUTHORS from page 10
Graham’s Bakery on Clothier Street in Kemptville will be the site of a book signing on Saturday, December 4 from 1 pm to 3 pm. Raina has two children’s books on the go and will jointly publish a chapbook with the members of her writing group. The publication of Clara’s Rib comes as the Royal Ottawa celebrates its 100th anniversary. Edgar Ladouceur is the author of poetry collections entitled Cowbell Conservatism presents Nonsense Poems from the Peasant Agrarian Party Volumes I, II and III. Poetry
has been a release for Ladouceur for years, but when he retired 7 years ago he began to compile these volumes. Each volume contains a number of vignettes accompanied by anywhere from 1 to 12 photos, many with an agriculture theme. According to Ladouceur, volume one has approximately 75 poems accompanied by 200 photos, volume two has 25 poems with 180 phoVVolume three contains 26 poems with 225 photos. Rather than publish these volumes in book form, they are available on CDs as PDF files. “It’s a simple approach but different.” Ladouceur enjoys working with the
new technologies and is having fun with his publications. Looking for a way to market his poetry, Ladouceur was referred to the Ottawa Independent Writers by a publisher and has been very impressed with the organization and its members. “I am looking forward to the fair. It sounds wonderful and the venue is an old university with books from the 1600s.” Formerly known as the Ottawa Authors Book Fair, the reinvigorated event organized by Ottawa Independent Writers will take place on Saturday, Nov. 20 and Sunday Nov. 21 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Butler bringing offensive punch to B-Sens By Rob Brodie OttawaSenators.com Bobby Butler takes pride in his play at both ends of the ice. But there’s one thing in particular about him that opened the Ottawa Senators’ eyes last spring. And already, the 23-year-old native of Marlborough, Mass., is showing plenty of it for the Binghamton Senators. When the Senators signed Butler as a college free agent, he came to the organization heralded as the leading goal scorer (29) in NCAA Division I hockey for the New Hampshire Wildcats. Now the American Hockey League is seeing that touch around the net. During the weekend of Nov. 5-7, the 6-0, 180-pound forward racked up seven points in three games, including a hat trick in a 5-0 triumph over the Syracuse Crunch. That followed another three-point effort (one goal, two assists) in a 7-3 whipping of the Adirondack Phantoms. With 10 goals and 15 points in his ﬁrst 13 games this season, Butler ranked No. 2 among all AHL rookies in both categories. Clearly, he’s adjusting quickly to the minor pro game. “Bobby’s been very good,” said Senators assistant general manager Tim Murray, who oversees the organization’s top afﬁliate in Binghamton. “The
coaches are real happy with him. He’s got very good stats for a ﬁrst-year guy. He’s a little older than some of the guys, but he’s still a ﬁrst-year player and he’s showing his pedigree. He’s a top prospect and we do expect him to play that way.” Butler made a strong push to make the big club during training camp, but the numbers game didn’t play out right for him. But Binghamton head coach Kurt Kleinendorst sees a player who is NHL ready in a lot of ways already. “Bobby was close when he left (training camp),” said Kleinendorst. “In fact, Bobby’s probably the kind of player that, under the right circumstances, could be playing in the NHL right now. But I will say there’s a beneift to what he’s experiencing right now in the American league. He gets to play in all situations. He’s playing on the power play, he’s playing penalty kill, he’s doing 5-on-5. “He’s playing 18, 20, 22 minutes a night and getting used in all situations. And he’s learning how to play the game and be responsible defensively. He can hone his craft in the American league that when he comes up here, he’s more prepared to stay.” All of that is ﬁne with Butler, who considered himself adept at both ends of the ice during his years at New Hampshire, where he was a ﬁnalist for the Hobey Baker Award last season as the top player in U.S. college hockey. “In my four years there, I always thought I was sound in the defensive zone,” he said. “That was one of the biggest parts (of the game) that the coach didn’t have to worry about with me, being able to put me in all situations. It’s a little different and everything’s faster (in the AHL), but that was one of the good parts of my game, the defensive zone. And you generate offence from good defence.” Still, Butler knows that it’s his nose for the net that is the key to eventually earning full-time employment with the big club. “It’s been pretty good,” he said of his start in Binghamton. “I feel good out there and I’m getting some chances. The more chances I get, the better it’s going (for me). Right now, so far, so good.” He senses improvement in his overall game with each passing week.
“We’re learning something new every day and the coach tries to instill something new in us every practice,” said Butler. “Every week, I’ve learned something new and I try to put it into my game, whether it’s individually or for the whole team.” Butler and the BSens are headed to Scotiabank Place on Nov. 26, when they’ll face off against the Hamilton Bulldogs, the top afﬁliate of the Montreal Canadiens. The two teams played Nov. 6 at the Bell Centre in Montreal, with the Bulldogs earning a 5-2 victory.

The youthful Kings have already served notice they intend to be among the elite teams in the Western Conference, charging out to an impressive start in the season’s ﬁrst month. Jonathan Quick’s stellar play has been front and centre in that early success, with his performance so far rating among the NHL’s best. The defence is anchored by Drew Doughty, already considered Norris Trophy material in just his third season, and Jack Johnson. Up front, Los Angeles follows the lead of Anze Kopitar, Justin Williams and Jarret Stoll, while captain Dustin Brown and veteran Ryan Smyth supply an abundance of grit.

“You can win by targeting the major villages, but you can’t succeed. Everyone needs representation. “Just because there’s 15 votes down a road, doesn’t make a difference in how they’re perceived at city hall.” But that doesn’t mean he’s forgotten about Manotick. Moffatt said one of his first priorities once he begins his job is to work on his planners to limit traffic issues in the village. With Manotick Main and Bridge streets being a huge cause for concern, Moffatt thinks the Strandherd-Armstrong bridge will help alleviate some traffic when it’s complete in March 2012. However he doesn’t feel it is the singular solution, especially for truck drivers looking for highway access. One of his ideas would be to reconnect 1st Line and Greenbank roads to take trucks off the roads during peak hours. Expanding Hunt Club Road would be another. But only his ideas are only preliminary right now. “I’m not in favour of creating a problem for another community down the road,” he said. He’s the second youngest councillor – after 25-year-old Mathieu Fleury shocked Georges Bedard in the Rideau-Vanier ward – but don’t expect to see Moffatt getting pushed around because of his age. “It shouldn’t change my work ability

whether I’m 29 or 59,” Moffatt said, noting that there are now five councillors younger than 40. “My passion and commitment to the community wasn’t any different than anyone who was older than me. Maybe it’s even greater.” Moffatt said he wants to bring his ward to the forefront by being a true city councillor and making local issues city-wide. With seven golf courses in his ward and with him being a former operations manager of a Golf Town and in charge of Anderson Links Golf Course for a year, Moffatt knows where he’d like to focus on his attention on. Moffatt said the eastern Ontario region is second only to Myrtle Beach in terms of golf courses per capita. He feels working with local groups is paramount to drawing people into the city to first play the sport, but to then get them to see the rest of the city. “Ottawa Tourism hasn’t done anything for golf courses,” he said. “They focus mainly on shopping and the hotel industry. “You sell the city by using the golf as your lead in. It’s the type of thing that doesn’t have to cost the city any money. It’s merely working with the bodies that are already there.” So as he waits patiently to tee off on all his new ideas, Moffatt is hoping his round as city councillor will go as expected. But like any golfer, the anticipation to begin is tough to take. “I’m excited to get started,” he said.
