Tanner Workman, 10, and Victor Kop are competing in the Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Leeds Grenville’s Bowl for Kids on Feb. 27 in Kemptville. The Kemptville residents are a nine-month Big Brother/Little Brother match through the agency and they are showing a toy car they have been working on during their weekend get-togethers.

Tanner Workman says it was hard for him to grasp the idea of having a big brother when his mother, Pam, told him. “I didn’t think she was pregnant,” the 10-year-old said with a laugh. “It was really hard to wrap my head

around it. I was, like, wow… that’s so cool. I was really psyched up about it.” Tanner was matched with his big brother Victor Kop last April. Tanner had been processed for a match through the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Leeds and Grenville since he was eight. “Tanner was on the list for a big brother for almost two years,” said Workman.

WIND TURBINE DEBATE

They were packed and moved by Nov. 1, but they are still not up and running at full speed. The young adults, who call the Kemptville Youth Centre (KYC) their own, are eager to get a kitchen operating at their new location on Oxford Street. “We’re very thankful to the community members that have stepped forward, but we’re still hoping to get into Phase II,” said Stacey Tenbult, KYC executive director. Phase II includes a kitchen, an essential part of the youth centre and central to several of it programs. “It has been difficult to maintain the lunch program. We’ve been serving cold sandwiches and fruit. We’ve been contemplating cancelling until the kitchen is complete, but it is one of our core programs,” said Tenbult. The centre prepares and serves about 75 lunches every week. The kitchen was also the hub of Cooknight – where 20 to 40 youth every week learn how to budget and cook healthy meals – that program is temporarily cancelled. Though the kitchen is the most critical, there’s still flooring, drywall, doors, lighting and trim for the lower level of the centre’s new home. “We’ve completed all the framing inside, and framed wider doors to allow for accessibility,” said Tenbult. The centre hopes to become fully accessible with ramps off the street, a lift inside the building to give access to the two levels and an accessible washroom. “We’re still waiting to hear about accessibility, we’ve applied for funding but still haven’t heard back,” said Teri Devine, KYC board member. The centre sees about 150 youth and expects anywhere between 30 and 60 on a daily basis. YOUTH CENTRE see page 3

their new customers with enthusiasm and a great big smile. The store held a pre-opening ceremony that began at 7 a.m. Store manager Jason Salmon thanked his staff for getting the new store up and running and ready for its first day of business. He took advantage of the moment to present community donations to the Salvation Army, the North Grenville Public Library, the Food for All

Food Bank and the Kemptville Public School. Each of the groups were given $1,000 while the library received $4,000. The 90,000 sq. foot store has been something many North Grenville residents have been waiting for. Long time Kemptville resident Peter Tsarouhas said, “We have been waiting for this for a long time,” as he and his family headed off to do some early morning shopping. Asked if the existence of a Walmart in the Kemptville area would hurt small business. He said small business will be all right. “Kemptville will be getting bigger now,” he said and added that there would most likely be enough business for everyone as the population grew. The Kemptville Public School Choir was on hand to sing O Canada. Also at the morning opening were MPP Steve Clark and North Grenville Mayor David Gordon. Standing on a makeshift platform with televisions in the background showing pictures of the staff at the store he said, “I hope our relationship will be long and prosperous.” MPP Steve Clark commented that Kemptville is a great place to be. “This is a very exciting day,” he said. As the clock ticked down, store manager Salmon addressed his staff one final time. He said that he was very proud of all the work they had done to get ready for the opening. “You are ambassadors to the community,” he said adding, “it is up to you to make our customers feel at home.” Jonathan Galleta the district manager for Walmart explained how quickly the store had been built. Randy Hutchings the vice president of operations for Walmart said that in 1994 there were only 121 stores in Canada employing 16,000 people. “Now there are 325 stores and 90,000 employees,” he said. Joyce Pal, a greeter at the front of the store commented, “It has been very busy, and customers have been excited.”

The problem is people...not coyotes Two coyote contests in the Osgoode and West Carleton areas have prompted the Ottawa-Carleton Wildlife Centre to encourage Parliament Hill to take another look at preventative measures. This is the second year that the contests have been held despite the fact that the hunts violate the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act — which states that hunting for gain, or to induce another person to hunt for gain is an offence. The coyote is an apex species — it has adapted well to both rural and urban environments. It performs an important role as a top predator. According to the Ministry of Natural Resources, coyotes breed in February, with the pups born in April or May. Litters usually average five to six pups, but can range from two to 10. Litter size may increase when food is abundant, or the litters may increase in size due to the fact that a contest cull takes a sizeable number of them, thus resulting in compensatory reproduction. Coyotes eat a variety of foods, including meat, carrion, fruits and vegetable matter. In winter, their diet consists mainly of rabbits, hares and deer. In spring, summer and fall, they prey mainly on small mammals, fawns, wild berries, birds, amphibians and grasshoppers. Coyotes

find their way to residential areas where they may come into conflict with pets, disturb garbage, and cause concern for residents. Wild animals have the same basic needs as humans — food, water and shelter. Sometimes, humans and wild creatures come into conflict when animals are trying to meet their basic needs. Often, conflicts can be prevented if we’re willing to make changes to how we think and act. People and wild animals live side by side in Ontario. We all share responsibility for preventing and handling human-wildlife conflicts. If you must take action against wildlife, please consider all your options and follow all relevant laws and regulations. These coyote hunts may pretend to be a legitimate cull, but are more like primitive shoot-’emup Wild West games. They won’t decrease the population of the animals in the long run. Perhaps compensation from the ministry to help pay for preventative measures would help alleviate the issue. Build a fence, hide garbage, prevent urban sprawl and get educated... these are all things the human species can do to see a more natural life cycle return to the coyote population.

Lessons for grown-ups from Story Time After an absence of about, oh, 40 years, I checked in at the library for Story Time the other day. It was pretty good. All the kids thought so. There was a lot about snowflakes. The kids paid attention, behaved, the way kids do when they are really interested in something. And while the little movie had their undivided attention, so did the reading aloud from books, which is encouraging in this day and age. If you needed persuading, you would be persuaded that public libraries are a good thing when you watch dozens of toddlers and their parents wandering in and amusing themselves in a constructive way, and none of it costing them a dime. Before and after Story Time, there was time to hang out in the children’s section, picking over books for them to borrow, keeping an eye out for stories that were too scary (which doesn’t necessarily mean ones with alligators in them), or too earnest, or too long, or too precious, or too much aimed at pleasing grown-ups. Here is another reason to thankful for public libraries. If you know children who like books, you know that they like a lot of books. They may like to go back to the same ones again and again, but

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town they also like new books, many of them, and you would rapidly go broke buying them all. So the library is vital here. To run a children’s program well, a library doesn’t need to be grand. This is not to say that a brand new fancy library in downtown Ottawa wouldn’t be great. It would be and should be. Anyone who has seen how Vancouver’s public library adorns the city’s downtown knows how truly cool, not to mention useful, a library can be. But in building the big downtown library, it would wrong to neglect the suburban branches. Those are the ones that are full of little kids on the days of Story Time. The buildings may be more modest, the facilities less than sumptuous. But they are close to where people live and they get used. They need to be kept open, and perhaps be kept open

more days and more hours than they are now. For one thing, this would give children an opportunity to see librarians in action, and notice what heroes they are. As anyone with children or grandchildren knows, the heroes and heroines of children’s books are usually bears, turtles, monkeys, dinosaurs or trucks, not librarians. On the rare occasion when heroes and heroines are human, they are mostly children, which is fair enough, or fire fighters, which is always good. Sometimes the stars of children’s books are knights who go around slaying dragons, which seems a little violent, not to mention archaic in the Internet age. Nowadays if you wanted to slay a dragon, you’d just pose an unflattering picture (and most dragon pictures are) on its Facebook page. Relevance in children’s literature is what we need. True, farmers get to be in children’s books, which is well-deserved. But we need to see more librarians on those large pages. Sharp-eyed readers may recall that there is indeed an heroic librarian in the book Library Lion, but she mostly takes second-billing to a lion. Books make a big impression on young readers and listeners.

centre of those books, and missionaries and researchers and statisticians. And writers too. Yes. None of these people slay dragons or find buried treasure or save Christmas, but they lead interesting and useful lives and who’s to say that they don’t deserve to be in picture books. Those of you who are public servants know the kind of quiet heroism the work entails. The trick is to find enticing story lines with words that are not too big. The library needs more public servants in picture books. Also teachers who are not owls.

Let’s go back to the good old days

I am one of those who still mourn the loss of our former Oxford-on-Rideau Township Offices. You would enter the office, and the staff, clerk treasurer, Reeve or perhaps a councillor or two would greet you by your first name and deal with you in a friendly, informal way. Today, we went to our municipal office to pay and receive our burn permit and, as my wife and I always do, get the same permit for our daughter who lives just up the road. Nothing doing. A father cannot be trusted to obtain a simple $15 burn permit for his daughter (still the same family name), because some bureaucrat made such a rule. Is this one of the many ad-

vantages and benefits that were promised to us when we agreed to the amalgamation back in 1998? Whatever became of our civilized society that a father cannot be trusted to obtain a simple $15 permit for his very own daughter? And who are those bureaucrats (or who do they think they are) to make such rules and regulations that an 84 year-old physically handicapped man has to be turned away for such a simple matter? Oh, for those good old days in Oxford Mills in our old Township of Oxford-on-Rideau. Kar1-F.and Traudie Hafner Beckett Lane

Where does your food come from? It is extremely disappointing that Canadian consumers wanting to support local food are not always served well by Canadian food labels. The members of the Christian Farmers Federation of Ontario are very disappointed that the labeling practices of Canadian food processors and retailers don’t always clearly identify where the food was grown and processed. But there are some bright spots. Our fresh fruits and vegetables have excellent mandatory labeling rules that provide Canadians with informed choices when making their purchasing

decisions. We believe that consumers should have that same knowledge for all of their food purchasing decisions. If you care about where your food comes from, you need to ask yourself if current labeling practices really give you enough information about where your food comes from. If you find the answer as dissatisfying as we do, you need to talk to your MP about this important food issue. Henry Stevens, President Christian Farmers Federation of Ontario

Silver Cross Medal replaced on 60th anniversary

A lost medal re-awakens memories of a family at war and the sacrifice of generations of Canadian soldiers JOSEPH MORIN joe.morin@metroland.com

The story of a lost Silver Cross Medal came to an end on Sunday, Jan. 30 at the Osgoode Legion. The Silver Cross Medal is awarded to surviving mothers and the widows of airmen and

sailors who die for their country. Originally given to Mary Ellis Lewis, the mother of Gordon Samuel Lewis, who lost his life in the early months of the Second World War, the cherished medal was eventually lost during a household move.

It has now been replaced. Gordon’s sister Dorothy Brownrigg, who is 94 years old, has fond memories of her brother. She has lived through the loss of most of her family including her mother. The 60th anniversary of her brother’s death on Jan. 29, 1941

brought back to her family the importance of the missing medal. After talking to her member of parliament Pierre Poilievre, and applying for a new medal at the Department of National Defense, she received word that a new Silver Cross Medal would be issued. Brownrigg said her brother was a great Canadian. “My husband and I, along with my brother, went to Hogs Back in Ottawa for the day. We had a radio that we stuck in the fork of a tree. There was an announcement that came over the radio about Canada going to war and Gordon said, “if my country is going to war then I will be the first to go,” she remembered. Gordon Samuel Lewis went over to England as a signalman with the First Canadian Corps of Signals. “I can remember my mother with a broken heart when he died” Brownrigg said. She says that when she received the new medal she added her wedding ring to it. “I loved my brother very much.” Dorothy’s family has always been quick to defend their country. She was born right in the middle of the First World War. Her father Neil Gatens Lewis, went over to Europe as part of the 207th battalion to fight. He left just months after she was born. Her grandfather had his

own history of serving his country. He fought for the British in the Crimean War in the Battle of Balaclava, which would later be captured in Alfred Lord Tennyson’s poem The Charge of the Light Brigade. A spokesperson with the Department of National Defense said that Gordon was most likely involved in training sessions as the British prepared themselves for a German invasion from the air and the sea. Gordon is thought to have been killed during a bombing raid. Pierre Poilievre MP for Nepean Carleton has been the driving force in helping the Osgoode resident get the medal. This past Sunday the medal was officially presented to her at the Osgoode Legion hall. Poilievre said, “Families like her’s have suffered for our country and for all of us. Their contributions are invaluable to Canada, and we must constantly thank them for their sacrifice and comfort them in their loss - especially on important anniversaries.” Brownrigg is also the greatgrandmother of the late Michael Potvin of Osgoode. Potvin was serving as an RCMP officer when he died in a boating accident last August. In addition, she was the Silver Cross Mother for the Osgoode Legion last Remembrance Day.

Grenville Municipal Centre on Jan. 20. He urged constituents for their input on the federal budget. Brown said he is engaging the communities in his riding. “We want to get to get the views of hardworking Canadian families, small business owners and workers that we should adopt as part of the next phase of the Economic Action Plan. We want to get the views of Canadians on the best ways to create jobs and economic growth.” North Grenville is the fastest growing community with the development of the Colonnade project, Brown noted. Infrastructure will be an important focus in the near future with the upgrading of County Road 43, where much of the development is happening. “That will be a major project in terms of infrastructure,” Brown said. “A better and more efficient infrastructure for North Grenville will be the next big push and I will support that.” Brown said they are looking at lowcost ways of creating jobs and economic growth while staying on track to balance the budget by 2015. Steve Kirby was one of the members

of the public who was concerned with a number of issues, including infrastructure deficit and stimulus funding, to rising prices of gasoline, income inequality and health care. “We have a large number of people who are homeless in this country and many who are making obscene salaries,” Kirby said. Brown noted that the country is on the right track and cited various ways that was happening.“Over the past two years, Canada has weathered the worst global economic downturn since the Second World War, a downturn that was started by the financial crisis on Wall Street and soon spread throughout the world,” he said. Home renovation tax credits, freezing employment insurance premiums and enhancing benefits as well as introducing training options were also introduced, Brown added. “Our government knows that Canadians are concerned about the economy,” he said. “That is why the economy continues to be the number one priority of Prime Minister Stephen Harper, our government and me. Our government will continue to focus on creating jobs for workers, retirement savings for seniors and the financial security of all Canadian families.”

Wind turbines are popping up in eastern Ontario like daisies in the spring – but it takes about three years before the building stage begins. A proposed site for 10 to 15 turbines near North Gower (the Marlborough Project) may take up to six years before it’s plugged into the hydro grid. According to Cathy Weston, manager of operations of Prowind Canada Inc., located in Kemptville, the project was not awarded a contract to sell power under the FIT program. “Now we wait for the results of the OPA’s (Ontario Power Authority) Economic Connection Test,” she said. “These results will tell us whether the OPA believes their planned expansions to the grid system will create enough capacity for our project to connect, and if so, the timelines for these expansions.” A recent public meeting in North Gower, hosted by three Ottawa-area communities that are concerned about the project, prompted much debate about safety issues surrounding the turbine prject Host groups included the North Gower Wind Action Group, the South Branch Wind Opposition Group, and the Beckwith Responsible Wind Action Group. Guests spoke about their personal situations dealing with turbines. Although the public was encouraged to attend the meeting, and the hosts stated that it was open to everyone, Prowind Canada Inc. was not invited. “I didn’t get an invitation,” she said. But despite the “oversight” Weston said her office door is open to anyone who has ques-

tions, concerns or comments about any of the current projects. Regarding the health factor that was discussed at the meeting, Weston said there is no clear evidence about definite health risks. “We are not a zero-impact society, but sometimes we have to find the best solution. The demand for energy is even more… I believe green energy is key to the sensitive environment around us. It’s a lot cleaner than coal-fired or nuclear hydro.” Prowind Canada Inc. is associated with Prowind GmbH (Osnabrueck, Germany), a company that deals with planning, financing, construction, and operation of power plants driven by renewable energy. They have built wind, solar, organic and hydro power projects. Prowind was established in 2000 by farmer and lawyer Johannes Busmann, and has since completed 16 successful wind power projects in Germany alone. Weston said the company has had a long-working relationship with area farmers. She has an agricultural background as well and has been a project manager for nine years. “We approach farmer and landowners,” she said about the acquisition of land for the projects. “They are paid a percentage of cost of the amount of power generated by the turbines on their property. We don’t strongarm anyone into contracts. We have to work with these landowners over the course of the contract, so we want to ensure a stable and friendly relationship.” The contracts with the landowners last 20 to 25 years and the company is responsible for the turbine’s maintenance, which usually takes place twice

a year as they clean and maintain them. They are electronically monitored and are repaired when necessary. When decommissioning is required, the company is responsible for returning the land to its original condition. The South Branch Project – near Brinston, in South Dundas Township, is set to start producing energy for the grid by Jan. 2013. “There are 15 locations (for turbines) in the South Branch project and we have to decide what size will be used – it’s a 30-megawatt project, so that could mean 10 three-megawatt turbines or 15 two-megawatt turbines,” Weston said. The turbines are 150 metres in height (including the blades) and have a base of about six metres. They have to be located at least 550 metres from homes, or public places and the noise level is not to exceed 40 decibels. “That’s like the sound two refrigerators together would make,” said Weston. There is a myriad of regulations to follow from such government agencies as the Ministry of Natural Resources and the Ministry of the Environment. The development can take years. The project for North Gower area is called the Marlborough Project which will generate 20 megawatts of power. One turbine can generate enough power to run 500 homes. There are 1015 turbines slated for this area, depending on the size the company uses. Weston says wind generation is not a new concept. “Look at windmills – the Dutch have been using them since the 1400s… they have been around forever. It’s not a new concept.”

Kop said he contacted the agency last year and caseworker, Bob Merriman made a trip to his home as part of the screening process. “Bob was great. It didn’t take long at all to go through the process,” Kop said. “Maybe three weeks and that included the police background check.” The pair were then scheduled for a meeting and they both said they got along right from the start. “He’s great,” Tanner said of Kop. “We’ve had no trouble at all,” Kop added. They both say they are looking forward to the Bowl for Kids Sake that will be taking place on Feb. 26 at the Kemptville Bowling Centre and the Elgin Bowling Lanes for five pin bowling, and on Feb. 27 at the Brockville Bowling Centre for 10 pin bowling and at Delaney Bowling Centre in Gananoque for five-pin bowling.

“There are very few ‘bigs’ in Kemptville, but it was well worth the wait. Vic is an awesome man and Tanner respects and looks up to him, so much. Tanner does not see or hear from his father – actually he has never met his father – so the relationship with Vic is even more important for Tanner. Vic and his wife are like family to me and my family, and I am thankful to Bob (Merriman, caseworker) every day for finding Vic for Tanner.” Kop is a transplant from Hamilton. He and his wife have no children; just a bull mastiff named Conga. The couple are currently busy with home renovations, when they are not working at their spill remediation business. He was also a former cub leader in the city. “Becoming a Big Brother was a natural fit,” Kop said. “It’s not as time consuming as being a cub leader and it’s more flexible. Tanner and I usually spend four of five hours together on the weekend. It’s been a really rewarding experience.” For Tanner, Kop is someone the boys can confide in, enjoy outings and play video games with. “It feels good to give back,” Kop said. “It’s a good break and it forces me to chill and relax. It’s what I need.”

Banking on the success of Ribfest in Brockville for the past 10 years, Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Leeds and Grenville, (BBBS) will host its inaugural event in Kemptville June 17-19 at the North Grenville Municipal Centre, with a big goal in mind – opening a new office in town. Jane Fullarton, who is the executive director of BBBS and a Brockville councillor, says there is a real need to service the children of Kemptville due to the town’s growth in population. That’s the purpose of Ribfest and other events like Bowling for Kids on Feb. 26 – funds raised from these specific events will directly help those children living in Kemptville. The June Ribfest will feature many of the family favourites that Brockville Ribfest has, including a midway, concerts and entertainment, a great selection of ribs and other food items and there is no entry fee. “It’s a great source of funding (for the agency) and it’s a great family event,” said Fullarton. “Best of all, it’s free to get in.” Fullarton said they have applied to the Trillium Foundation for a grant to open the office in Kemptville and she expects to know the results of that by the first of March. If they don’t get the entire amount

Jane Fullarton executive director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Leeds Grenville – about $60,000 – to open in April with a full-time staff and programming, they will shoot for a September opening with funds raised from the Kemptville Ribfest. “The focus of our agency is to service the Kemptville kids – that’s our main goal to achieve this year,” Fullarton said. “We are keenly aware that we are not meeting that need in the outer areas and having an office in Kemptville will help us meet those needs.” The agency is an organization that provides direct service to children by matching adults and children in quality mentoring relationships. Men and women (age 18 or older) give of their time to become a mentor to a youngster who can greatly benefit from having an adult role

model to look up to. Currently, there are 50 matches, and that includes couples’ matching, which is a relatively new “and well-received” concept, Fullarton said. “It (the couples’ matching) prevents cancellations (by either person) and shows a model of family relationship.” Currently, there are 40 children on the waiting list for a big brother or sister. But once the child is accepted for the program, they are available to take part in the “Big Bunch” activities. “It’s a wait group and we provide programming every week,” says Fullarton. And there is no fee for the child to take part. Another program the agency wants to get up and running in Kemptville is the in-school mentoring program. This is an opportunity for a volunteer to spend one hour per week with a child, in the child’s school. Currently, the agency provides this programming for 60 children in Leeds and Grenville schools. “Volunteers bake cookies, carve pumpkins at Halloween, play card games, board games… it’s beneficial for the child because it lets them realize that school isn’t all that bad,” said Fullarton.

Weaving a Hospital Web

Ensuring the best environment for elderly patients Nicolas Ruszkowski Nicolas Ruszkowski VP, Communications Ottawa Hospital

Ottawa, January 24, 2011 My first ski instructor was Fernand Bonnevie. I saw him at Christmas. He is 96. He doesn’t ski anymore. Even walking is too difficult. He gets 24-7 care from a live-in caregiver (his wife died years ago), children and grandchildren. Not in a hospital or long-term care setting, but from his old house in the alpine village of Val d’Isère. Does it complicate things? To an extent, yes. He doesn’t benefit from doctors conducting complex procedures to make it easier for him to walk. Would he prefer a long-term care space? Not a chance. From his house, he uses binoculars to spy on an Alpine Ibex who is also struggling with old age. He worries about the Ibex, but cherishes his ability to relate to the world outside. Between advanced but invasive care and quality of life, Fernand chooses quality of life, surrounded by the nature and people he loves.

The volunteer has no outside contact with the child and sometimes, it’s a better fit for a volunteer who can’t give any more time than an hour a week, she explained. “This is a great program,” Fullarton said. “It shows you that an hour really can make a difference to a child.” For more information on Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Leeds and Grenville, visit: http://www.mentoringmatters.ca/en/ home/default.aspx.

That changed with the launch of a new www. ottawahospital.on.ca

The choice raises important questions for all health providers who care for the elderly. Are acute care hospitals a good setting for people like Fernand? Is there a better way? A consensus is emerging between hospitals, community healthcare providers, caregivers and care coordinators such as the Community Care Access Network: once they have treated seniors, acute care hospitals are not well suited to providing them the comfort, dignity and quality of life they should expect. Home, where patients can enjoy the independence from which so much of their dignity derives, along with the company of loved ones, is better. That is why our social workers – along with our leadership and a host of other health professionals – are working with the Community Care Access Network, the Local Health Integration network and other partners in health to implement Home First. Home First is a new approach to care that immediately starts the discussion, upon admission to hospital, about the best place and options available to patients and families after discharge. The approach puts every stakeholder in the system on the same page, seeking ways to reintegrate elderly patients into the community as promptly, compassionately and safely as possible.

Nicolas Ruszkowski Nicolas Ruszkowski VP, Communications Ottawa Hospital Professor Pierre Bélanger taught New Media at the University of Ottawa, in 1994. The internet, web-sites and instant messaging was still considered novel. Perhaps even a little obscure. We actually devoted hours of class time to learn about search engines, web-sites and messaging. Today, four-year olds can do this with no instruction. But we were still asking: what is the art of the possible? What will communications look like thanks to the internet? They would be instant. They would force real-time dialogue. They would become brief, bite-sized, “user-friendly”. They would change people’s expectations of good communications.

The site is built on 5 principles. It is inclusive, not only of different professions, departments or programs, but of our patients, visitors and community. It is bilingual, so that everything is available in English and French. It is accessible, whether you are visually impaired or not. It is dynamic; inviting visitors to share feedback and patient stories so we can always improve. Finally, it is patient and user-centered. For instance, visitors can use the Directions and Maps section of the site to plan their itinerary from home, to hospital, back home. They can search our physician directory alphabetically, by name or specialty. And they can search information about programs, departments or clinics by keyword. For the first time, users can also follow us on Twitter, at OttawaHospital, and Facebook, on The Ottawa Hospital Facebook Group. We will use these tools to inform the community of important news, as well as maintain an ongoing dialogue about how best to serve our patients. Don’t just take our word for it.

All of that, and more, has come true. People of all generations and service providers from all sectors have embraced the internet, social media, and social networking. Until recently, however, The Ottawa Hospital had been slow to embrace these changes. Our web-site looked like it had been built not long after 1994. It was hard to update, and didn’t allow instant communications. It didn’t seek out patient and visitor advice, nor promote dialogue. It was not “user-friendly”. In short, it did not live up to expectations of good communications.

Hospice hosts Bowl-A-Thon and Saucy Chef Challenge JOSEPH MORIN joe.morin@metroland.com

The Beth Donovan 13th Annual Bowl-AThon was a hit with everyone this year. Kemptville Bowling was busy all day Saturday, Jan. 29 as 71 bowlers arrived to split up into teams. Later on in the evening, the Kemptville Legion hall was filled up with diners waiting for their spaghetti dinner. A new event for this year was the Saucy Chef Challenge. A panel of seven celebrity judges took on the task of selecting the best sauce from a list of seven chefs. The winning sauce would be used that evening for the meal. Taking part in the friendly and tasty competition

were: Salamander Restaurant with Liane Tucker, Heather Kranek sous chef from the branch restaurant, Todd Gooch from Lock 17, Terry and Josie Butler of Butler’s Victorian Pantry, Erik LePors of Dial a Chef, Cheryl Mackie of The Brigadoon and Linda Robinson from the B&H Your Community Grocer. The judges were: Managing Editor of the Advance, Suzanne Landis; Pastor Dan Massey, Hospice Chaplin; Robert Noseworthy of Westerra Homes; Norma Fisher; Dr. Farncombe; Dermid O’Farrell of O’Farrell Financial and Senior OPP Constable Shawn Tobin. Executive Director Dawn Rodger said that this year’s dinner was busier than ever. The Hospice had help from Grahame’s

Bakery, who supplied the buns as well as a fantastic cake. B&H Your Community Grocer donated all of the Caesar Salad. The judges had to taste their way through seven courses of sauce before they were ready to announce a winner. While all of the sauces were delicious, just one could

be named as number one. The winner of the Saucy Chef Challenge went to Linda Robinson of B&H Your Community Grocer. “This is my top secret sauce,” she said adding that she was pleasantly surprised when it came in first. Her prize is a silver ladle and a specially designed apron.

Dancing the night away in North Gower JOSEPH MORIN joe.morin@metroland.com

White commented that many residents of the North Gower area as well as those in North Grenville have been able to enjoy the care and services the Kemptville District Hospital offers. The clubs executive feel the hospital is a good choice for some fundraising. The dances feature a bit of everything from square dancing and waltzing to the two-step and round dancing. The mandate of the club is to promote Olde Time Fiddling, step dancing, and country music. The club also holds local fiddle contests as well as helping out with the Canadian Grand Masters Fiddle contest. The club began 27 years ago in 1984. The age range of members is from 20 to 95 year’s old.. The cost is $30 for a single membership and $60 for a double.

Anyone who loves country classics will appreciate what the Rideau and District Olde Time Fiddling Corporation is all about. Every second Friday of the month, the Olde Time Fiddlers gather at the Alfred Taylor Centre in North Gower. With a club membership of close to 250, the Friday night get together turns out to be a great night of live music and dancing. The fun begins at 7:30 p.m. and runs until 11:30 p.m. This Feb.11 the dance will be a fundraiser for the Kemptville District hospital. Melissa Graham, the chairperson of the hospital foundation will be on hand to explain what the hospital is doing and how much the fundraising is appreciated. Each year the club chooses different causes to sponsor through their dances. In the past, they Your Vacuum Cleaner Headquarters have raised funds for the heart www.vacshack.ca institute, Ottawa diabetes and paraplegic associations. The president of the club, Irwin White says that the dances are great fun. “People come to the dances to meet people and We service all Central Vacuum Systems listen to the music,” he said adding, “I think all that dancing helps to keep people out of the hospital.” 391463 Hobin & Main Street, Stittsville

EMMA JACKSON emma.jackson@metroland.com

It’s no mystery why Just Kiddin Theatre in Metcalfe is so popular with kids with a flair for drama, especially when founder and director Andrie Nel has offered up a brand new mystery-thriller for the winter and spring months. Registration has opened for the theatre’s Mainstage program, which allows kids aged nine and up to rehearse and perform an original play from start to finish. This spring’s production is called “The Mirror Never Lies,” which was written by Nel. “It kind of starts as a mystery and turns into a thriller. It takes place in a romantic inn in the Muskoka area, and as you can guess a murder takes place,” Nel explained. “What’s fun about it is there’s no real lead character. We try to write the characters in a way that’s very balanced, so they all have to be very interesting.” Young actors and actresses are usually split into two groups of 15, who practice and perform at the old town hall in Metcalfe. Although the Saturday session is already full, there are still spots available on Thursday nights, Nel said. The final production will take place between May 13 and 16 at the old town hall. Since 2005 the after-school rural theatre has exploded in popularity, to the point where Nel applied for Trillium Founda-

Sentrions are now at the top of the food chain and appear to be making the same mistakes as humans did in Gillian and the Boss, the last installment of a three-part play that was performed at the old town hall in Manotick in December. Registration is now open for kids aged 9 and up to act in Just Kiddin Theatre’s spring play, “The Mirror Never Lies.” tion funding to make sure the theatre’s volunteers have the resources to accommodate the growing interest. The theatre now has two years’ worth of funding to keep the program going. Nel said she began the program to offer affordable arts opportunities to children living in rural Ottawa, where there has traditionally been a lack of arts program-

ming. The theatre has also embraced an accessibility policy that encourages kids with special needs to join as well. Along with the Mainstage program, registration is also open for a program

specifically designed for teenagers, called Stage Craft. This program allows students aged 13 and up to take their acting skills to the next level, she said. “It takes a little bit more of an advanced approach, where they actually write and create their own show. Then they tour it to area schools,” she said, adding that the performances will likely be in May as well. “We don’t know because the kids haven’t decided that yet,” she laughed. The third program open for registration is a week-long March break camp for kids aged seven and up, which offers a more accessible drama program to help initiate young children into the world of theatre. “The kids we’re trying to reach one are ones that aren’t quite sure that drama is for them, and making a big commitment is a barrier,” she said. “We’re also introducing at a younger age, where the kids don’t need to be able to read, because they’re going to create something but in an improvisational approach.” Registration is open “until it fills up” Nel said, but spots are filling quickly. Residents from across the Ottawa area are welcome to sign up. For more information or to register, visit www.justkiddintheatre.com.

Kemptville 73’s look for a playoff spot

Special to the Advance

Kemptville opened the weekend within three points of the last playoff spot in the league. The opposition on Friday, Jan. 28 was the team they needed to catch. The Kanata Stallions visited North Grenville and the 73’s hoped to give them an unfriendly welcome. And that they did for most of the game. Kemptville took a 1-0 lead into the first intermission with a goal scored by Brett Jackson with assists from Cameron and Lesway. The goal was Jackson’s third of the season. In the second, Alex Brenton scored to increase the 73’s lead. Setting up the goal were Clark and Upshall. Kanata got one back on the power play but Kemptville restored its two goal lead when Pat Cameron, from Jackson and Ferras, scored at the 14:34 mark. The 73’s were enjoying a 3-1 lead at the end of two. The third saw the game plan start to go awry. Kanata scored their second power play goal of the game less than three minutes into the final frame. Fortunately, Jake Clark restored the 73’s twogoal lead with his fifteenth of the

year from Upshall and Brenton. Kanata then scored their third power play goal of the evening to get within one. The Stallions were able to tie the game with just 25 seconds left in regulation time after they pulled their goalie in favour of the extra attacker. Overtime lasted just 41 seconds when Kanata scored to steal the victory. Kyle Rankin was a one man wrecking crew for the Stallions, scoring four of the goals and setting up the fifth one. This loss was a setback for the 73’s as they had the win within easy reach and allowed Kanata to steal two points and move further ahead of them in the standings. Brett Jackson was named the game’s second star. Friday night featured giveaways from O’Farrell Financial. As Kemptville’s exclusive home jersey sponsor, members of the

O’Farrell team were on hand for a ceremonial puck drop. On Sunday afternoon, representatives from Shaw Direct, the team’s exclusive away jersey sponsor were at the complex to give a Shaw Direct teddy bear to the first 100 fans. The Hawkesbury Hawks were in town to battle the 73’s on Sunday, Jan.30. The Hawks jumped out to a fast start, scoring twice in the first ten minutes of the game. Kemptville cranked their game up for the last ten minutes of the period as Alex Brenton scored twice to bring his teamleading total to twenty-seven for the season. Plouffe and Hutton earned the assists on the first goal while Nevins and Clark picked them up for the second. The first intermission saw the game tied at two. Almost six minutes into the second period, Jake Clark, from Jackson and Lesway, scored what turned out to be the eventual game winner. The goal was Clark’s sixteenth of the season. There was no scoring in the third and the 73’s took the victory 3-2. Jake Clark and Ben Hutton were named the game’s first and third stars. Still chasing a playoff spot,

Kemptville will see lots of action this week. On Tuesday, Feb.1, the 73’s will try their luck with Kanata again. This time, the action will be in Kanata. On Thursday, Feb. 3, they will travel to Cornwall to take on the Colts, who are currently ranked as the number two junior team in the country. The 73’s then return

home for games on Friday, Feb 4 and Sunday, Feb 6. Their opponents will be the Ottawa Junior Senators on Friday with a puck drop at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, the Brockville Braves will visit North Grenville. There is a special game time of 1:00 p.m. Catch the excitement of a playoff race and see some great Junior A

Some of the best restaurants offer the same things: fabulous food, excellent service, and an intimate relaxing atmosphere. Red Rooster Bistro measures up in all these categories. Josef Zsofnyak opened this restaurant mid 2010 choosing the new Sanders Square Complex in Old Town Kemptville as the ideal location. His past success as chef earned the Locks restaurant special mention in Treasures of Ontario magazine for his home prepared Italian Dishes. Starting this month, Italian selections of Josef’s creation will be offered in addition to his regular menu. Since opening, patrons have enjoyed the weekend AAA Prime Rib and other favourites made to order and satisfying in every aspect. Quiet music plays in the background as you enjoy the cosy dining experience you may find at a fine bistro in Europe. The Red Rooster Bistro also can accommodate food allergies if there is any concern and they take the effort to ask. Everything is made to order and care is taken in the presentation. We invite you to sample the European inspired menu in a comfortable intimate setting. Reservations appreciated.
