Rural council set to tackle three important issues Thurday's meeting of the Rural Council of Ottawa-Carleton (RCOC) promised to be one highly charged. The focus of the regular monthly meeting was to be the ongoing problems with the New Endangered Species Act and the Clean Waters Act, and how they will affect landowners in the area. The key issue is compensation. Ontario’s Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) has already classified some 3,600 hectares of land in the Stittsville area as wetlands, which limits what can be done on the land and reduces its value — some losses estimated as high as a 75 per cent. “Rural Council is very concerned about the city’s present position on the revised official plan,” said RCOC president Bruce Webster, a Richmond resident working closely with the community association. Two other important items on the agenda are the water issues in Lynwood Park and the forthcoming Communities’ Sustainability Strategy being discussed in a public forum by the Carleton Landowners’ Association. Osgoode Councillor Doug Thompson has confirmed has attendance at the meeting to discuss the problems facing Lynwood. As the elected representative for that city rural ward, Thompson is acutely aware of the difficulties facing the trailerpark residents. Others have taken note as well. Lisa MacLeod, the local MPP, has toured the site with government officials in an effort to find a solution to the ongoing problem. > > > RCOC


You can lead a horse to water, but it may be classified wetlands

Actually, Dreamer, pictured above, has nothing to do with the wetlands issue. He's part of the four-day Ontario Harness Horse Association youth camp, hosted by the Rideau Carleton Raceway, which drew kids from across Ottawa. Aged 10-13, with no harness-racing background, all had to write 200-word essays on “Why I Want To Drive A Race Horse.” The eight children selected - ranging from Renfrew to Chesterville – were given hands-on experience combined with in-class training. The program, currently in its sixth year, visits racetracks around the province in hopes of helping children with equine inclinations, but without the means of being involved in harness racing, to become educated about the industry and make them capable of returning to the racetrack as a volunteer or employee.

Residents using bottled water to drink and bathe JUST MOVED?

Our Hostess’ Gifts and Information are the Key to Your New Community 196741

< < < RCOC From Page 1

The park is facing problems with its water supply, forcing residents to consume and bathe in bottled water. The RCOC is questioning why the city has yet to apply for a federal infrastructure grant, especially after 30 years of water problems. The water has been deemed a health issue by the Ottawa department of health and by Nick Fleming, a resident of the park, who took samples of the water to the RCOC during its May 1 meeting. The Communities’ Sustainability Strategy was formulated by the CLA in response to the City of Ottawa’s Rural Settlement Strategy. The CLA is “deeply concerned,” according to its website, that the City’s focus on “’settlement’ is leading to missed opportunities for the development of a truly via-

ble and sustainable communities in the rural area.” The organization is planning three separate meetings to "formulate and communicate their vision for a Communities’ Sustainability Strategy. The first of which will take place in the Carp Agricultural Hall on September 18, 2008 at 7 p.m," said its website. Over the summer, the CLA has been organizaing itself to fight back against the contentious Bill 130, planning guest speakers, organizaing discussion panels, and preparing background materials. With those three issues facing the council, Webster expects emotions to be high and the crowd to be involved with the RCOC's discussions and decisions. “We expect to have representation from Lynwood Park and some people in the crowd cheering us on,” said Webster.

Grow ops, black cats and grazing cows

Doozy of a Dozer During the early morning hours of July 25, a 21-yr-old male driver from Munster was charged under the Highway Traffic Act for failing to

drive in a marked lane and was issued a 12-hour suspension after crashing his vehicle through a fence and ending up on a complainant’s front lawn. The driver stated to the investigating officer that shortly after midnight he was heading westbound on Fallowfield Road and must have fallen asleep at the wheel. When he woke up, his vehicle was sitting a couple of meters from the front door of the complainant’s house. Upon further investigation, it was determined that after the driver had fallen asleep his vehicle crossed over the eastbound lanes and sheared off a neighbor’s mailbox, then traveled alongside the south ditch, slowly drifting down one side and out the other. It then crashed through an electric fence and entered into a field, passing several grazing cattle before

Do not touch the marijuana plants because of the chemicals on them. If confronted by a marijuana grower, just leave the area, record any licence plates and call police. WARNING: Some outdoor marijuana grows are guarded or protected by booby traps; if discovered, turn around and immediately leave the area the way you came in.

was heading westbound on Flewellyn Road when suddenly a cat crossed her path. As she swerved to avoid hitting the cat, her vehicle caught the gravel shoulder and went spinning into the ditch. Both airbags deployed on impact and the vehicle sustained major damage. The driver complained of a sore wrist and neck pain, but refused medical attention. The fate of the cat is unknown, but it is definitely down one life of nine.

Hikers and dog walkers Please be alert to outdoor marijuana grow operations. Each year, hikers and dog walkers stumble across grow ops as they wander through forests and fields located throughout Ottawa. During the summer

months every year, persons involved in growing marijuana head into the rural areas to tend to crops of marijuana plants, in some cases very large ones. Typically, these illicit crops are located in areas such as swamps, cornfields, wooded areas, along rivers and rural rental properties with large acreages. Marijuana plants are bright green; the leaves have seven jagged fingers. The plants grow between three and five feet tall, with an odor similar to that of a skunk. Some common indicators of outdoor marijuana grows are: abandoned vehicles parked on side roads or trails; people observed walking in remote areas for no apparent reason; bags of fertilizer, planting trays or chemicals located in remote areas; well trampled trails in wooded or swamp areas; clearings in swamps, wood-

crashing through a second electric fence, where it came to rest in front of the complainant’s house. After traveling roughly 250 metres through a ditch, fences, and a cattle field, at speeds of up to 105 kph, the vehicle, by some miracle, only sustained minor damage to its front driver side tire, rim and quarter panel. The driver did not report any injuries.

here has been much cultural fanfare about the Beijing Olympics beginning this Friday. The number eight is a symbol for good to the Chinese, so what better date to start them than on the the eighth day of the eighth month in 2008? Let's hope it won't stay with us years from now alongside such other memorable dates like the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, the Nov. 11 Armistice in 1918, which concluded what both U. S. President Woodrow Wilson and literary icon George Orwell both optimistically proclaimed "the war to end war." Well, that didn't exactly work out as hoped. Nor did President George W. Bush proclaiming "Mission Accomplished" in Iraq in what seems, in hindsight and amid escalating violence and casualties, a tad premature for global post-9/11 celebration. The 1960 Rome Olympics are viewed by some as the last "good" and "pure" Olympics. Many ensuing Olympiads have been marred by politics and violence. Black Power salutes on the podium, the slaughter of Israeli competitors, riots and protests by and on behalf of the impoverished, displaced masses forcibly moved to make room for stadiums, murder of almost the entire Israeli team. Some question whether the Olympic spirit and movement are dead. Beijing may shed some light on those questions. Much has also been spoken and written to compare the totalitarian regime in China with Hitler's Nazi regime in Germany, in 1936. History reminds us that Berlin marked the end of the movement for nearly a decade as the Games were cancelled in 1940 and 1944 due to war. Let us hope that the Beijing Games will not be the last for the foreseeable future. Let us pray that Olympic history does not repeat itself.




A day at the market ENJOYING THE NORTH GOWER FARMERS MARKET: The North Gower Farmers Market was the place to be last Saturday morning for corn day. Dave and Kari Harder and their children Emily, Kellan and Kayla were watching a local vendor work on a pottery wheel.



ast week marked the departure of our dogged reporter Josh Cohen from our humble newsroom. Josh, as is typical of this business, has found and moved on to greener pastures, likely more money for fewer hours. It's never the pay that draws journalists to community newspapers. It's the challenge, sometimes the outright thrill, of reporting on what's happening, who's doing what to whom, and why any of it matters to our readers. It's not a matter of voting on what we'd like to cover; freedom of the press doesn't extend to the denizens of the newsroom. Josh tackled all topics. He was a master at juggling assignments and rarely drop-

ping any of them. As I often told him, I have never, in my many decades of journalism, seen anyone work harder. Long hours are a nature of the beast and if you're not prepared for them,

go sell shoes. That was the advice from my first editor. It's still true today. Josh never balked at an assignment, never counted the hours, worked until the job was done, week in and

IN THIS NEWSROOM... week out since our paths first crossed here nearly a year ago. His passion is sports. He and some college friends once ran their own sports newspaper. A game was never an assignment for Josh, it was a way of life, almost a spiritual experience. Whereas most of go to a game and snap a pic, maybe chat briefly with someone and watch a bit of the action, Josh would often plant himself for the duration. I was delighted to read his blow-by-blow, inningby-inning, frame-by-frame account of whatever contest he had most recently set his sights on. His copy often made you feel you were in the bleachers; it was hard not to cheer.

We in the newsroom will miss his good humour and intense mien. Whether he was hurling the verbal jabs or was the butt of them, Josh usually held his own. I'm proud to say there's a lot of laughter in this newsroom, and Josh certainly contributed his share — not always intentionally. He began coming to work scarred, bruised and limping from his exploits on the ball diamond or some other passion. I'm sure we found it more amusing than Josh, but he took the ribbing well. And then he was gone. Out the door. Hobbling to the next assignment. I've enjoyed working with Josh. I'll miss him. I wish him well.

Josh was equally adept in other fields. He could get people to talk to him and steer him to others who could expand on what they had told him. That was equally true whether he was writing about crime, politics, seniors or youth. It was a rare gift he used well. I believe the best thing he ever wrote was his feature article, adorned by his photos, advising motorists to slow down and move away from emergency vehicles parked on the side of a highway. That story resulted from two police officers being struck by passing vehicles. I don't think running down cops should be an Olympic sport and assigned Josh to look after it. He did.

it down dear reader, I’ve got some bad news for you. Sorry to tell you this, but we’re breaking up. After one year of covering everything and anything imaginable in your region, I have decided to move on to the dark side, substituting the hectic pace of a newsroom for a government cubicle. Some might say I sold out, especially my journalism colleagues who were taught that the government is our worst enemy. But if going from a sometimes 50-60 hour week to a daily 9-5er is a bad thing, I wonder what they’re going to say about my starting three weeks paid vacation? Okay, okay, I’m not trying to rub it in, but I’m not getting any younger here and it’s time to face some facts about growing up. For those of you who have met me face-to-face, I look


like I just graduated from college, even high school. Truth is, I’m turning 32 in two months, I just bought a house, a wedding to plan for and a fiancé who wants the 2.5 children within the next two years (eeps). If there was a way to balance my position with the OSW with my personal life, I would gladly make it happen. But to be a reporter for your region, or for community papers in general, it takes an insurmountable amount of dedication, commitment and time. There’s no such thing as missing a beat, and although mistakes happen from time to time, you still have to give it your all out there. Unfortunately for me, as I was building a relationship with you, I was dropping the ball with my fiancé, and when push came to shove, she won the battle. Of all the people in my life, my fiancé truly knows the passion I have inside me for writing, and we spent a great amount of time trying

to figure out some solutions and whether I would be happy moving on. So, as I began writing this final column in my backyard, I asked myself: Did I make the right decision? Absolutely. Am I going to miss writing for the OSW? Definitely. Will the door be open for me if I decide to come back? My managers said it would be, so take some comfort in knowing that I might return one day. Now, I don’t doubt that thousands of you are storming my office in Kemptville

Donor clinic huge hit Canadian Blood Services collected 52 units of blood from 62 donors who attended yesterday's Kiwanis blood donor clinic at Jack May Pontiac. The units collected are so important, as donations normally decrease over long weekends and during the summer months. Since


one blood donation can save as many as three people, 156 patients will be touched by your donation. Your blood donation is the difference between life and death. To the first time donors who visited our clinic, we look forward to seeing you

again and invite you to bring along a friend to donate. In order to meet demand for blood and blood products, we must recruit 9,000 new donors across North/East Ontario this year alone, so thank you for taking that first step in becoming a lifelong donor.

right now in response to my announcement, surrounding my editor and staff with torches, threatening to burn down the building. But my departure from the OSW will most likely upset one particular anonymous emailer who once wrote: “I look forward to your next edition as my cat needs something to catch his litter granules as he exits his cat box.” Dear e-mailer, I hope you’ll be more compassionate of my successor, Nathan Jahn, who I’ve heard is quite fond of cats. Back to a serious note, I have received hundreds of e-mails and had countless conservations with readers thanking me for the hard and soft news stories in the paper over the year, especially sports articles. I’ll say it again, you’re welcome and it was my absolute pleasure being the face behind you’re community paper. But if anything, it is you who I have to say thank you to, as I wouldn’t be able to

cover your community if you didn’t provide me with tips, ideas and angles to follow. You’re the ones who put me on the right track, and I hope that you’ll continue to e-mail or phone my office with further story suggestions, upcoming events or whatever is on your mind. Now I’m not very good at goodbyes, and it would be impossible to thank everyone who made a difference in my life over the past year. But it would also be incredibly stupid of me not to recognize those of you on my way out who have made a deep impact on me and who will continue to be an important part of the community. In no particular order, they are Bruce Webster, Bob McKinley, Brian Tansley and the rest of the Rural Council of Ottawa Carleton — the real heroes across Ottawa south; Kim Bates for putting Vernon on the map; Kim Saunders and everyone at the Osgoode Youth Association; the crime-fighting Peter

Jeon; Isabelle Geoffrion and the staff at Watson’s Mill; Tyler Cox and his incredibly talented Greely Eagles; and (I’ve got to shorten this up as best as I can) every minor sports association who made me feel like I was a part of their team. To the staff at the Kemptville office, it never felt like we were co-workers, it felt like we were family. To Jason Marshall for giving me an opportunity to write for Metroland. And, most importantly, to my editor, Doug Clark. Your guidance and leadership will never be forgotten, and you took me to new heights as a reporter. You’re an inspiration to all of us at the office, and to future reporters who will be incredibly lucky to have you watching over them. So, this is it OSW readers. I’m dumping you. And, just like my cop-out to other ex-girlfriends — it’s not you, it’s me. But can we still be friends?

ore than 20 years before becoming a farmwife, I played one on stage. North Grenville District High School’s drama club put on The Farm Show, a play about the characters of rural Goderich, Ont., when I was about 17. I played the role of the overworked but happy farmwife, and delivered her monologue while standing in an upright wringer washing machine. I never dreamed I might one day take on the role of farmwife for real. One of the other mono-



logues in The Farm Show, if you are not familiar with it, involves a woman attempting to roll a square bale of hay. It is, of course, very difficult to roll a square bale. For the most part, they must be lifted by the twine. On the Fisher Farm, we harvest our hay into large round bales: the kind that can fall off a stack and crush you if you aren’t careful. On more than one occasion, when the Farmer has been otherwise occupied, I have attempted to roll one of


DIANA FISHER WEEKENDER STAFF these bales all by myself. They weigh about 600 lbs


and so moving them from one end of the barn to the other is almost impossible for one Farmwife of average weight. My usual technique is to cut the twine and take peels off the round bale with my pitchfork until it is small enough to roll. Anastasia can lift her weight in hay over her head. The Farmer describes my pitiful attempts as “fuzzy forkfuls”. Despite my lack of upper body strength, I am quite pleased with myself for mak-


ing it through the lambing season last winter without a major allergy attack. I don’t know what happened but, somehow over the course of my last few seasons on the farm, I have become immune to hay. It used to be my worst allergy. Back when I was a teenager, riding the horses on Williams’ farm on Johnston Road, my eyes would puff up until I was peering through slits. I thought I was allergic to the horses: the allergist verified that my worst allergy was, in fact, hay.

I suffered from hay fever every year and actually took allergy shots throughout the season until I married and moved to the city. Still, whenever I returned to Beach Road to visit my parents in the summer, my allergies would flare. During summer visits home from Taiwan in recent years, my allergies would put me out of commission for the better part of the first few days while I adjusted to the pollen count.

FARMER TOOK A WIFE, THEN WIFE HAD A SNEEZE <<< Allergies From Page 6 Is it possible that I have developed a tolerance to hay due to daily exposure? When I first starting dating my husband, the smell of hay on him would make me sneeze. When we first married, I pictured myself venturing into the barn with a ventilator mask. But as the lambing season

approached, I found myself in the barn, pitching hay alongside my man. Hay dust still makes me sneeze, as it does the Farmer. And if I carry hay in my arms, I start to itch. But I can breathe in the barn and to me at least, that’s a miracle. Now, another miracle that would be most welcome right about now would be five days in a row without rain.


Rural funds available

That is the minimum time required to dry out our fields sufficiently so that we can get our hay off before all of the nutrients are leached out, leaving it almost completely devoid of any value. I can just imagine the looks on the ewes’ faces when I attempt to serve them this hay next February, while they are ensconced in their lambing pens. They are NOT going to be pleased.

Constable lobbies city to fine unlocked cars BLAIR EDWARDS METROLAND STAFF An Ottawa police officer is lobbying city councillors to fine motorists for leaving their vehicles unsupervised and unlocked. Every year hundreds of people leave their car doors unlocked, an open invitation for theft and identity fraud, said Const. Ray Lamarre. The expense of investigating these preventable thefts is borne on the backs of taxpayers, money better allocated in other areas of the police department, he said. It costs $200 per hour in police resources for an officer to look into a report of a stolen vehicle, according to police, not including the expense of investigating related crimes such as credit card fraud and identity theft. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a heavy burden on taxpayers every time you leave your car unlocked (resulting in a break in),â&#x20AC;? said Lamarre. Unlocked doors are responsible for 20 to 40 per cent of items stolen from vehicle break ins in Ottawa

last year, representing hundreds of reported break ins in 2007, according to police statistics. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of reports weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re taking over a preventable crime,â&#x20AC;? Lamarre said. Lamarre, who is the community police officer for Bridlewood and parts of Glen Cairn, wants the city to pass a bylaw that would fine forgetful motorists $25 for leaving their vehicleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doors unlocked. He is still in the early stage of preparing a report for city council, researching similar laws and bylaws in Canada. In Quebec, the provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highway safety code fines motorists $52 for leaving their vehicles unlocked and unsupervised. REACTION Lamarre has spoken to only a few councillors about the lock it and pocket it bylaw, but so far the idea has attracted the interest of Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder, Cumberland Coun. Rob Jellet and Kanata South Coun. Peggy Feltmate. Feltmate said a bylaw forcing people to lock their

cars on city streets and on public property is a good idea. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It delivers the message that people need to be responsible,â&#x20AC;? she said. Feltmate said she will consider sponsoring a motion for a lock it and pocket it bylaw, once she has received Lamarreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s report. I will tender an inquiry to police to get their opinion on it, and make sure itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s generally wanted, and then go for it.â&#x20AC;? Stittsville-Kanata West Coun. Shad Qadri said the proposed bylaw is similar to the $80 fine charged by Ottawa police for attending false business alarms. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basically saying to people you have to take responsibility for your own belongings,â&#x20AC;? he said.â&#x20AC;&#x153;It costs the police some expenses to (investigate vehicle thefts) when the car is left unsupervised,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Somebody has to cover the cost.â&#x20AC;? Enforcement of the bylaw would have to yield to common sense, he added, for instance not penalizing people who leave their cars unlocked due to an emergency.
