The all stars of the North Grenville business community were honoured at last Saturday’s Salute to Excellence Awards Gala at the WB George Centre, sponsored by the North Grenville Chamber of Commerce. The annual awards, nominat-

ed by the public, celebrate business excellence and community involvement. Robert Noseworthy of Westerra Homes was named the 2011 Hal Anthony Citizen of the Year, an award that recognizes those with “strong ability and desire to promote and act as an ambassador for North Grenville” who work to “generate a spirit

Anyone who has ever loved a dog can appreciate the horror and pain of their dog being hit by a car. On the morning of April 30, Allie Krapiec and her fiancé Kyle Kay were walking Mogley, who was rescued from a home in Quebec, where he and four other dogs were found to be in terrible shape. “He weighed only 30 lbs when we got him,” said Allie. “He is very fearful.” During the morning walk, Mogley became frightened and bolted away from Kyle and Allie. When the couple caught up with him, a few roads over from where they were walking, he was trying to stand up in the middle of the road. Allie figures Mogley was dragged

A Kemptville dog, left for dead after an apparent hit and run, is still fighting for his life. Mogley, a rescued greyhound and husky mix, has been transferred to the St. Hyacinthe Hospital in Quebec – east of Montreal – from the Bytown Association for Rescued Kanines (B.A.R.K) in Ottawa. Mogley is in rough shape. He will have to have one of his hind legs amputated. Both of his hips are broken. He will need to have one hip put back together with pins and screws. His right front leg will need to have surgery as well and pins will be used to repair it. He also has a collapsed lung. The cost to save Mogley’s life is around $13,000. He is currently having his collapsed lung looked after by having the air syringed out of his chest. Once the lung has stabilized, the rest of his surgery will begin. “His long-term prognosis is good to very good,” said Sharon McKeil, the president of B.A.R.K. She said that Mogley’s breathing is getting better and the surgeries will depend on how quickly he can be stabilized. The cost of the surgeries is not going to stop Mogley’s friends from helping him. “We are asking for help to pay these bills. The estimate does not

by a car. The driver of the car had simply left him there. “He had three phone numbers on his dog tag,” said Allie. “No one bothered calling.” Mogley was placed with Allie to get him back on track emotionally and physically after he was rescued from his abusive situation. “He was filled with parasites,” said Allie, remembering what he was like when Mogley first arrived at her home. Now he is 60 lbs and a great deal happier. “He is such a happy dog,” said Allie. “It is a huge cost but he has been through so much.” Mogley arrived at Allie’s home in November. Her job is to foster him until he is ready for adoption. Allie said that fundraising events are in the works for Mogley. On June 25 there is a golf tournament planned at the Rideau Glen Golf Club. A euchre tournament has been planned as well, and a dog walk is being arranged, with details still being worked out. B.A.R.K is an all-breed no-kill rescue organization. “We are a registered charity comprised solely of dedicated and experienced volunteers,” said McKeil. The mandate of B.A.R.K is to rescue and rehabilitate abused or abandoned dogs in the Ottawa area. They also provide a support system for families to try and keep dogs in their original homes. They find new homes for unwanted dogs. Educating people about dogs is important. The rescue organization also educates children and adults on how to chose and care for a pet.

Business celebrates at gala The North Grenville Chamber of Commerce held its 22nd annual Salute to Excellence Awards on Saturday, May 7. The evening has become the pinnacle social event of the Chamber’s busy year, preceded by twelve months of meetings, breakfasts and dinners, all designed to energize and support the North Grenville business community. This year, as in others, the crowd at the W. B. George Centre celebrated the success, generosity and vision of their fellow businesses. Each award singled out those in the community who have put together a business that works. A former president of the North Grenville Chamber of Commerce Board offered up a good description of the North Grenville business community. Anna Van Adrichem-Rochon said that if you consider each business and the people behind a particular business to be a dandelion, then everyone at the gala were present and future individual flowers in a bouquet. The bouquet represented the best of the best. The message to business is clear. Not only does business provide a service to the rest of us, in bringing their products to the marketplace, they also are the ones we all turn to for

financial and managerial help. North Grenville has, over the past few years, become a fundraiser’s nightmare. There has been one fundraising event after another. Competing causes jostle up against each other all trying their best to meet their particular goal. Every single cause in North Grenville has been a deserving one and businesses as well as residents have donated relentlessly, their money, time and energy to help each cause get to where it needs to be. Local business has been on board for all kinds of local initiatives. From the Kemptville District Hospital’s successful Lean on Me campaign to the North Grenville Public Library’s Room to Read campaign and on to the Kemptville Youth Centre’s new building campaign. At just about every dinner table at the W.B.George Centre on Saturday night could be found members of just about every fundraising committee in North Grenville. It is not a coincidence that the same people who operate a business in North Grenville are the same ones who every year raise the bar for giving to their community.

Getting cross about bridges As far as it’s possible to tell, there was only one political party in the federal election that promised to help build a new bridge across the Ottawa River. That was the Liberal party and you know what happened to it. That means either … (1) That we are lucky to have avoided all that construction and disruption, or (2) That we are doomed to live with our existing bridges. It depends on your point of view. Aside from those two, there is a separate possibility: (3) That bridges are a political jinx and we will never hear a politician utter the word “bridge” again. Ottawa is an odd place. It is full of bridges, yet some people are barely aware of them. And other people are obsessed by them. The people who are barely aware of bridges are those who don’t have to cross the crowded ones every day. As one of those people, I was taken aback a few years ago when a visiting West Coast author I was interviewing said that her first thought of Ottawa was as a “city of bridges.” I had never heard Ottawa described that way before. And yet, when you think about it, there are tons of them.

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town

Think of the bridges over the Rideau Canal, stretching from downtown over to Bronson Avenue near Carleton. Think of the bridges over the Rideau River. And then think of the ones that cause all the controversy, the bridges over the Ottawa. Ottawa is indeed a city of bridges, but it doesn’t occur to you until you are stuck waiting to get onto one. Or until someone threatens to build one near your neighbourhood. In that respect, think of the mighty squawk that was heard when an extra lane was added to the Champlain Bridge in 2002. You could have expected and understood the agitation of residents living in the Island Park area, but NO THIRD LANE signs sprouted in neighbourhoods several kilometres to the west and east.

For every resident who fears a new bridge, there is another who demands one. Those are the people who are stuck in the twice-daily commute, waiting 15 minutes to get onto the bridge and not even able to phone to say that they will be late for fear of being arrested for violating the cellphone-in-cars ban. Or they are the ones who want the truck traffic through their neighbourhood to go somewhere else, courtesy of a new bridge. Meanwhile, in the putative area of the new bridge, there are people readying their NO BRIDGE signs. Judging by the extremely cautious statements of local politicians, when indeed they make statements at all, there is no reason to hope or fear that Ottawa will become a city of more bridges any time in the near future. You have to be able to read tea leaves to draw any conclusions, but the tea leaves seem to indicate that politicians are less afraid of the pro-bridgers than the no-bridgers. This does not bode well for those who were sort of hoping that Ottawa-Gatineau might have a new crossing in time for the 150th anniversary of Confederation in 2017. If it makes them feel any better, there

is always the possibility that a new bridge would not have solved anything at all. This conclusion relates to the often-cited theory, a variant of Parkinson’s Law, that the number of cars expands to fill the number of lanes allotted to them. In other words, no matter how many new roads you build, they will always be jammed. How this works can only be described in supernatural terms. Somehow there must be a magical mechanism that creates more vehicles at a precise moment. Scientists can not explain it, but Ottawa politicians clearly are aware of it. What all this means for the future is unclear. We will cross that bridge when we don’t come to it.

As recently as a few years ago – a lifetime in the technology age – teenagers looking for a summer job would check the want ads in the local newspaper, or scour the bulletin boards at libraries and community centres. But these days, most teens are attached at the hip to smartphones, tablets and other hitech devices that make shopping, chatting with friends, and even finding a job a digital exercise. But where to begin, when the major job sites cater to adults? Three Grade 10 students from North Dundas District High School have the solution. Geordie Jeakins, Alexandra Keyzer-Cournoyer and Sam Pietersma came up with the idea for a youth-focused employment website they call Connekkted. “It’s like Workopolis for teens,” explained Keyzer-Cournoyer. Connekkted will bridge the gap between employers and employees by allowing rural teens to search for work “their way,” she said. “Let’s face it, teens love to spend time on the internet, so the best way to reach out to them is online,” Jeakins added. The three students presented their idea to a panel of entrepreneurs during the second annual Innovation Challenge, a Dragon’s Den-esque competition sponsored by Venture Education and the Upper Canada District School Board. Students from three schools vied for $2,000 in seed funding for their business ideas, which also included a locally grown

The North Dundas students envision their website taking off as word spreads to other schools. Online ads will fund the site, and employers could pay a premium to have their job posting ranked higher on the page. Community groups could also advertise teen-friendly local events. The judges were impressed that the students so clearly indentified a need in their community. “I always like to see when

somebody takes an idea and makes it local – there’s always great value in that,” said Stephen Daze of the OCRI Entrepreneurship Centre. “I’m awed by how right you’ve gotten most aspects of your business at an instinctual level,” added online shipping magnate Kevin Ford. The toughest questions came from techsavvy entrepreneur Rahime Juma, who grilled the group on how they planned to market and pay for the site, which they had initially said would be free to use for employers and job-seekers. Juma applauded their community spirit, but reminded the

budding business leaders to pay themselves for their hard work. Along with many kind words for what he called a “terrific” presentation, the Kingston businessman took the group to task for referring to themselves as “only kids” when admitting they would need help creating and hosting the website. “You’re not ‘only kids,’” Juma told them. “You’ve got to take what you have in life, and take advantage of it – and you’re doing that.” The North Dundas students withstood the dragons’ fire and impressed Juma enough that he offered to invest $1,000 of his own money to get Connekkted off the ground, along with having his web development company design the site, in exchange for 25 per cent of the venture and free advertising for his companies on the website. After a brief negotiation, the excited students agreed to the deal. “I was impressed with their enthusiasm, how articulate they were and how they were doing something that, personally, I hadn’t heard of before – which is a rare thing these days,” Juma said. Eric Hardie, a principal who created Venture Education with fellow administrators to provide business-minded youth with reallife learning opportunities, was “absolutely delighted” with the results. “We built up Venture Education in hopes that there would be students and teachers out there excited by the opportunity,” Hardie said. “It’s extremely satisfying to see our faith upheld.”

Top businesses and volunteers honoured at Chamber gala From the front “This community is an incredibly generous and friendly place to live and do business,” Noseworthy said. Fran Thompson’s work with the NG

Public Library, blood donor clinic, medical students, and tending to the sick was recognized with the Russ Mosher Volunteer of the Year Award. The overwhelmed Thompson thanked those she volunteered alongside. “They should be up here, not me,” she said. Prolific volunteers Maureen Nolte and Anna Van Adrichem-Rochon were also nominated. In a surprise presentation, esteemed barrister and Queen’s Counsel Ted Warren received a Lifetime Achievement Award recognizing his 50 year legal career. “This is a total surprise to me,” said the clearly moved Warren, as family and friends cheered loudly. Laurier Optical took home the Mel Johnston Established Business of the Year Award, presented to a company that has been in business for at least six years and demonstrates commitment to commu465321

nity, job creation, employee relations, and customer service. RB Heating & Air Conditioning was also considered. Louise and Company edged out Back In Motion to win the New Business of the Year Award. Both businesses were commended for their many charitable contributions. Tallman Truck Centre, previously known as the Kemptville Truck Centre and one of Canada’s Top 50 Employers, was given the Chamber’s Employer of the Year Award. “They say (we had) humble beginnings, but I guess we never knew any different,” said company president Gerald Tallman. “We came to work and helped out the community, and things like this happen.” McGahey Law, a busy law firm led by Kim McGahey that still finds time to give back to the community, was the other finalist. Lynn Cryderman of North Grenville District HS and Bradley Leach from St. Michael Catholic HS were selected by their teachers for Co-op Student Awards, presented to high school students with an interest

in commerce and the potential to one day run their own local business. Cryderman gained invaluable teaching experience from her co-op placement, and Leach began his trade apprenticeship in carpentry working at Lockwood Brothers Construction. The 22nd annual awards night marked a special milestone for the Chamber of Commerce, which turns 30 this year. “This is a night of celebration,” said Board Chair Mark Thornton of Bell Aliant, the evening’s main sponsor. Ottawa restaurateur Dave Smith delivered a rousing keynote address challenging the business community to band together and support worthy causes. Coun.

The Farmer decided to let the ewes and lambs out of the barn in honour of the nicer weather. Or maybe it was in honour of Mother’s Day. Out in the open pasture, the little ones are continually getting separated from their mothers. All I can hear is the sound of hoarse little lambs going “Maaaa-aaaah!” Some of the ewes answer, while others don’t. The unresponsive ones aren’t necessarily bad mothers. They might be just a little preoccupied. The day before Mother’s Day found me in Walmart. I watched a frazzled mother juggling two kids in the lineup at McDonald’s. One little guy, kicking his foot impatiently against the hip he was resting on, lost his shoe. His eyes followed the colourful sneaker as he and his mother slowly moved away from it and towards their table. He started to wail in some indecipherable baby gibberish that only made sense to him. The young mum tried to shush him as she fit him into his high chair. Finally she noticed her son was missing his footwear and retraced her steps to retrieve the shoe. Little man sniffled and shivered and reached for a French fry. As I watched from my vantage point across the crowd, I was instantly transported back in time about 18 years. I had a side-byside stroller with two little girls in it. The larger child was four years old and her little sister was one. I was pregnant with my third. My back ached and my feet throbbed. I was in a hurry

Happy Birthday Giant Tiger BY HOWAIDA SOROUR A giant cake with a friendly tiger face was shared with customers at the Kemptville Giant Tiger (GT) as it celebrated the company 50th birthday along with every GT store coast to coast, on Saturday, May 7.

North Grenville Mayor David Gordon helps Giant Tiger owner and manager Ross Muir cut the Giant Tiger birthday cake at the store’s 50th anniversary celebrations on Saturday, May 7.

“The turnout was better than we expected,” said Ross Muir, owner/manager of the Kemptville GT, “and it was a lot of fun.” The parking lot at the Kemptville store was turned into a petting zoo as the folks from Big Sky Ranch came out to support one of their best sponsors with Diesel the Llama, Oscar the sheep, and a few other furry friends. The Kemptville Youth Centre was on hand to run a barbecue and a face painting booth, because in typical GT fashion it was as much a celebration as a fundraising opportunity for one of their favourite causes – Kemptville youth. “The youth centre is a good cause, they’re trying to do good things and if we can help them accomplish that, it’s fantastic,” said Muir. Inside the store, the Holy Cross Crusaders – the local Catholic school’s grades one and two choir, sang O Canada and Happy Birthday Giant Tiger to gathered staff, customers and North Grenville councillors. Councillor Tim Sutton was on hand to share in the celebration and Mayor David Gordon was there to cut the cake. “I grew up with GT,” said Gordon. “They support the community, they’ve got a big heart.” Giant Tiger opened in Kemp-

tville in 1988 when Councillor Terry Butler brought the franchise to town. “I was very impressed with Giant Tiger’s grass roots approach to management and merchandising,” recalled Butler, as he addressed the gathered crowd on Saturday. Muir, also a Kemptville resident with strong ties in the community, took over the store in 1998. “One of Giant Tiger’s main focus points is to be a pillar of the community and that’s what we’ll continue to focus on going forward,” said Muir. “Our goal is to be the community store of choice.” The Kemptville GT, follows the company’s corporate formula,

Today the company boasts 199 stores across the country, with more than 6,500 employees. The idea, then and now, was to keep costs low and offer quality merchandise at low prices. “I shop at Giant Tiger because A long line of customers patiently inch forward in front of the Kemptville of the prices and the people,” said Sheila Watson, Kemptville Giant Tiger store to buy their hotdogs and drinks from Kemptville Youth resident.

STAFF The first annual Beth Donovan Hike for Hospice was a success. On Sunday May 1, close to 100 people took part in the Hospice event at the Ferguson Forest Centre in Kemptville enjoying the great weather, barbecue and entertainment. “It was a wonderful day,” said Hospice executive director Dawn Rodger. She said the hike went very well. “We were totally thrilled with the results and happy with

the community support,” she said. The weekend event featured a barbecue looked after by the Mount Zion Masonic Lodge 28. Children had fun in the Kid’s Zone and parents were able to enjoy the entertainment. The funds raised all go directly back to the Hospice. The total of funds raised was $8,666. The sponsors for the hike were Westerra Homes, the Mount Zion Masonic Lodge 28, the Bayshore Home Health and GlaxoSmithKline Foundation.

The Beth Donovan Hospice has been helping its community since 1992 when Father Brian Hart and the parish council of the ST. Ann Roman Catholic Church and the Merrickville town council founded the Merrickville Hospice. In 1994, the late Beth Donovan, who was registered nurse, became the coordinater of volunteers for the Hospice. Thirteen families were served in the Hospice’s first year. By 1997, the Hospice had rented space in Kemptville.

The word ‘Hospice’ comes from a Greek word which means “a resting place during a difficult journey.” The journey, in this case, is from life to death. Hospice affirms life. Through appropriate skilled care and the presence of a caring community sensitive to their needs, Hospice enables patients and families to live as fully as possible while preparing for death. Hospice neither hastens nor postpones death, but regards death as a normal process.

Shroomfest magic helps Metcalfe community J.P. ANTONACCI jp.antonacci@metroland.com

There were mushrooms of every kind on the menu at Shroomfest in Metcalfe last Thursday night. Well, almost every kind. “Your shrooms are delicious, but they’re not that

good,” quipped Ottawa comedian Carrie Goetz, one of the featured acts at the popular men’s night fundraiser for local charities sponsored by a group of communityminded individuals and businesses led by Al Graham of AJ’s Catering. Roughly 670 men packed the Metcalfe Fairground Agricultural Hall for the buffet dinner and comedy night,

which during its first five years has raised over $120,000 for a wide variety of good causes in Metcalfe and Osgoode, from sports groups and youth organizations to theatres and health-care initiatives. Shroomfest draws grandfathers, fathers and sons, politicians like Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson and councillors Doug Thompson and Scott Moffatt, car dealers, equipment manufacturers, and plenty of farmers, all who were teasingly skewered by the comedians. Hockey trivia expert and Shroomfest fixture Liam Maguire dished out tough playoff questions while 165 St. Lawrence St. throwing a few verbal jabs at many of the regulars Merrickville in the audience. 613.269.2168 The chance to see old friends and business associates keeps Metcalfe resident Bill Kollaard coming Shelley Innes back. shelleyinnes@hotmail.com “Part of it has to do with connections. A lot of my clients are here,” said Kollaard, who operates Kollaard Associates, an engineering firm based in Kemptville. “But the comedians are the best part – they’re a riot.” Kollaard also noted Shroomfest’s positive impact on local charities. “AJ’s Catering is a real community supporter. The two mushroom farms, too.” The men feasted on beef and pulled pork sandwiches and plenty of homemade sides, including hot and cold mushroom dishes featuring produce from Metcalfe institutions Carleton Mushrooms and Continental Mushrooms, Shroomfest’s gold sponsors. Local waitresses kept the beer flowing while host 117 St. Lawrence St. Chelsea Miller of Ottawa radio station Live 88.5 enMerrickville, On couraged everyone to “get off your wallets” and sup613-269-4213 port the charities by bidding on silent auction items.

Trees and Shrubs FOR SALE Article provided by PBM Environmental Soil is the heart and soul of the landscape. Take whatever steps necessary to build a good soil layer for your property. A soil test is a good idea to see what the soil attributes and deficiencies are. Take a sample from a few different spots on the property and put it in a soil test bag and box. The test will cost 30 – 50 dollars at “Accutest” or other labs. A variety of home test kits are available also. A good quality soil will have sand, clay and organic material components. No single component on its own makes a good soil. There may also be soil micronutrients present such as calcium and magnesium. The more mature a quality soil is the more micro organisms, worms and other beneficial organisms will be present. Few lots have the 30 plus inches of good soil needed for

optimal tree and plant growth. As mentioned earlier, make every attempt not to waste any topsoil you have on your site. For example peel the soil off a site prior to digging a foundation for a new home. Stockpile it on site to be graded back in later. Do this even for a smaller project such as an excavation for a patio or driveway. In this way the poor quality subsoil doesn’t bury the good stuff. The same holds true for building planting beds. Avoid piling new additional good quality soil along house foundations. Chances are pretty good that the existing soil is only a couple of inches thick on sand fill. Piling on top results in those “extreme” raised beds that are unsightly. They are also impractical for water retention and good landscape results. Again, scrape off the few inches of good soil. Dig down to get 16 to 20 inches below what you want for finished grade and fill back with your good quality soil. Use

the excavated material to bring grades up somewhere else. If you still need soil after you use what’s on site you may be faced with buying some. Alternatively you can slowly build it. Ask about clay, sand and organic mater content. Some sources will even have data on pH which for the majority of plants is preferred neutral (6.6 – 7.4). Somewhat higher than that is alkaline and lower tends to acidity. There are plants that thrive in these extremes but neutral is generally best. The most common additive to bring vitality to a soil is organic matter and the most common is compost. It brings with it a number of benefits. It simultaneously helps with moisture, fertility and loosens soil structure. In heavy clays sand and compost mix will help and conversely in sandy soils try to increase clay and organic content. Compost can be bought or you

can make it in your garden in a variety of ways. Making your own saves money, reduces the amount of refuse moving off your site and can eliminate fertilizer needs. Be careful of the coarseness of the organic material because the micro organisms that work at decomposition use nitrogen for that process which can leave less N available for plants. Dig in your soil additives to maximize benefits. There will be more on composting and “compost tea” in future issues. There will always be plants that do better in a given soil and location than others. Do some homework and choose appropriately. In some cases look around to see what already grows on your site and get more of those varieties. These may well be native vegetation species. We’ll address the benefits of utilizing native species in the next issue.

begin to utilize the runoff from your property is to shorten your downspouts. Once the grades away from the house are correct and the water is directed out 68 feet you can grade to direct the runoff into your gardens. A little more active approach is to incorporate rain barrels at the downspouts. Here you have to make sure that the overflow is properly directed away in the event of heavy rains. Also make

One of the easiest ways to improve the quality of your plants and vegetables is to reduce watering, directly from the well or municipal supply. The amount of water that is shed from some properties is enough to supply the most avid gardener for most of the growing season. A small amount of plumbing

engineering in your landscape can result in a more vigorous garden and a lot less tap water use. Air temperature water eliminates the shock to plants that well or municipal water brings. You can even run municipal water into your water collection system to top it up before watering plants. This has the double benefit of raising the temperature and gassing off some of the additives. The simplest way that you can

sure the base for your barrels to sit on is sufficiently robust. With a little more engineering, though it is still quite simple, you can drip irrigate your plants from your barrels. Just put a fitting on the bottom and attach the hoses. Barrels will usually fill quite quickly in an average rain. Assess the area of your roof that is drained by a given spout and you may be able to put multiple barrels in sequence to collect as much water as possible. Let gravity do the work so you don’t have to incorporate pumps into your system if you want to keep it simple. A little more complicated though still easily rigged is using larger tanks near the gardens above or below grade. You can see where this is going. I’m sure people are recalling cisterns that parents or grandparents had in farm houses etc. Water was scarce back then for different reasons, usually shallow wells.

23,000 sq. ft. of Greenhouses 9,000 sq. ft. of Perennials

The collected water was used for many things around the house. The thought that rainwater collection is unsightly isn’t necessarily the case. Properly planned and creatively incorporated it will add an attractive element to your landscape. We have used collection sources to power landscape water features and even used, usually, dry stream beds to distribute water to gardens. Be creative and have some fun with it. As mentioned, a large component of “Environmental Responsibility” lies in getting back to basics and simpler times. Environmentally responsible architects, builders and other proponents of “Sustainable Development” are already putting cisterns back into home engineering systems to flush toilets and water landscape and vegetable gardens. Surprising but true…one “Eco” home that I toured not too long ago even listed driveway washing, on a poster, as a use for the collected water. My hope is that not too many of us here in the country wash our driveways. We thought that was what brooms and rain were for. HAPPY GARDENING…!

Peacefully, after a courageous battle with lung cancer, Marguerite (Maggie) O’Brien bravely and gracefully entered into rest on Saturday April 23, 2011, at the age of a young-at-heart 65. Predeceased by her parents Martin and Jean and sister Annalea and survived by her husband and love of her life, Roy Proulx and by many aunts, uncles and cousins. Maggie’s sense of commitment and responsibility allowed her to excel in everything she did. She achieved the position of being a Bank Officer with the Bank of Canada and was instrumental in changing some internal policies to be fairer and more just. Maggie loved life and lived it to the fullest. Creative and expressive in many ways, she was one of the core members of the Shout Sister choir and joyously exemplified its heart and soul. She was also a member of the Ottawa Valley Decorative Artists, the Kemptville Quilt Guild and a member and Executive member of the Rideau Glen Golf Club. Maggie willingly and tirelessly took on many responsibilities to enrich the lives of others. She selflessly devoted much of her time to volunteer activities with Victoria’s Quilts; The Abbotsford Center For Seniors; People, Words and Change; and the Kemptville Hospital - Post Operative Unit and also the Auxiliary Tea and Gift Shop and held the position of President in many of these organizations. Maggie’s compassion and caring for others enriched the lives of all who knew her. She will be remembered fondly and with much love by family and her many friends. A celebration of the life of this remarkable lady will be held on Saturday, May 14th at 2:30 at Garden Chapel of Tubman Funeral Homes, 3440 Richmond Road, Nepean (Between Bayshore Dr. and Baseline Rd.). Friends and colleagues are invited to commemorate the life of this remarkable lady. A reception will follow immediately thereafter. In respect to those with sensitivity issues, please refrain from wearing perfume or scents of any other nature. A special thanks to the staff of the I.C.U unit of the General Campus of the Ottawa Hospital, especially to Rebecca and Mary. In lieu of flowers donations to Victoria’s Quilts Canada – Kemptville Chapter, P.O. Box 1107, Kemptville, K0G 1J0 would be greatly appreciated.

New Home Warranty

NC)—To protect the warranty that you are entitled to as the owner of a newly built home in Ontario, routine upkeep is essential. Improper maintenance, or just plain neglect, can result in damages that your warranty won’t cover. Tarion Warranty Corporation, the non–profit, private corporation established in 1976 to protect new home buyers according to the Ontario New Home Warranties Plan Act, suggests the following tips to help prevent moisture damage: OUTSIDE THE HOME • Fix the caulking around windows and doors and on the roof if it becomes cracked or separated. • Keep flowerbeds and landscaping at least six inches or 150 mm away from the top of the foundation. Placing soil near or above the top of the foundation allows moisture to come into direct contact with the structure of the home. • Clear eavestroughs of debris regularly and extend downspouts so that water is directed away from your home. Water that flows around the foundation could

eventually find its way into the basement. • Have your roof inspected regularly to ensure shingles, flashing and chimney caps are in place and sealed properly. INSIDE THE HOME • In the summer, dehumidify the basement to avoid condensation buildup on the cool foundation walls.

systems in your new home – including heating, electrical, plumbing and air conditioning – will both help safeguard your warranty and ensure you enjoy your home to the fullest. A more detailed Home Maintenance Checklist can be found online at www.tarion.com. If you have any questions about your warranty, contact Tarion at 1–877–982–7466.

• Repair leaky pipes and fixtures immediately. Clean and completely dry any areas that are dampened or wet within 48 hours. • Investigate and identify any musty smells and odours. They are often an indicator that there is a hidden moisture problem. • Purchase a “hygrometer” to monitor the relative humidity in your home. Ask your builder about additional maintenance tips. He may also be able to provide information about proper maintenance for specific products provided by manufacturers. Knowing how to properly operate all the
