Nepean gets Cup crazy ‘I’ve been waiting for this since ’72’: Bruins fan JESSICA CUNHA

UP AND OVER Enjoy world-class horse jumping and all things equestrian over the next two weekends. 9

It came in a grey SUV amid claps and cheers from the handful of fans who waited outside the Nepean gymnastics club. The Stanley Cup had arrived. Boston Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli, who grew up in Ottawa and worked on the Senators management team before leaving for Boston, took the cup on a tour of Ottawa on Aug. 5, stopping at the University of Ottawa and the Nepean-Corona School of Gymnastics on Colonnade Road. His wife, Alicia, and daughter, Talia, both attended the Nepean club and wanted to share the Cup. “I was a gymnast here, I coached for a little bit then I worked in the administration office for 14 years,” said Alicia. “Talia was a competitive gymnast here before we moved to Boston. It’s just kind of a family thing.” Peter, who attended law school at the University of Ottawa, said he and his wife wanted to bring the Cup to places with meaning for the family. See BRUINS, page 7

‘Everyone just seems to stay young’ Residents at Harmer House, a co-operative assisted living complex for seniors in Bells Corners, will mark its 25th anniversary on Aug. 22 JENNIFER MCINTOSH

What began with seven volunteers at the Bells Corners United Church in the ’80s has blossomed into a unique cooperative complex for seniors: Harmer House. The development has an ownership structure that may the only one of its kind in Ontario. The co-operative nature of the complex – and plenty of willing volunteers – has helped residents form a sense of community many apartment buildings lack. As the volunteers work on preparations for Harmer House’s 25th anniversary on Aug. 22, some of the original board members recalled the beginnings. Jean Jenkyns, a former resident of Harmer House and one of the original board members, said the work really began 30 years ago with a group called Seniors in Our Midst, which did a needs assessment to figure out what seniors were missing in the former city of Nepean. NEED IDENTIFIED “We found that there was a real need for something of this kind,” Jenkyns said, adding that once the ball got rolling, Bells Corners United volunteers enlisted the aid of the other four churches in Bells Corners. In March of 1984, the four churches – St. Martin de Porres Roman Catholic, Christ Church Anglican and the Salvation Army Nepean Corp. – became part of the West Nepean Ecumenical Residential Projects (WNREP). In 1988 Bethany Baptist Church replaced the Salvation Army. The four churches are the reason for the four squares in the logo representing Harmer House. Jenkyns and fellow original board member Des Garvey remember having to incorporate the church project so that they could get a mortgage, buy the land and start building. Beryl Gaffney, then a member of the Nepean city council, helped to champion a no-interest loan from the municipality to speed up the process. Jenkyns recalls one objec-

tion from then-councillor Frank Reid. “Beryl stood up and said it was just $15,000, a pittance compared to the money spent on new football fields in his area,” Jenkyns said. Gaffney said as councillor she recognized the importance of such a service for seniors in Nepean. “Even then it was a growing population and there was a real shortage of affordable housing for seniors,” Gaffney said. But from concept to building was quite a feat. “I just remember a lot of meetings,” Jenkyns said. The land for the complex was purchased from an influential family group of developers. Former mayor of Nepean, the late Ben Franklin, helped broker the sale of the two lots on Seyton Drive and Forestview Crescent. “It was such a thing to see, the two (developer) brothers were fighting and not talking to each other, but somehow we got the deal done,” Garvey said. The lots were purchased for $850,000 and the group took out a $2-million mortgage to get the building constructed. Orest Roscoe, another of the original board members, said that time was of the essence to get the deal done. “I can remember getting the property owner to sign the contract at 10 p.m. and Des (Garvey) having to hightail it to the airport where Jean (Jenkyns) and her husband were waiting to get on the plane,” Roscoe said. “He had to get there so we could have it in that night to get the financing all sorted.” With their quick work and funding help from the federal, provincial and municipal governments, the then 60-unit apartment complex was finished in 1986 on schedule and under budget. QUICK OCCUPANCY “It was fully rented within a few months of opening,” Roscoe said. The new corporation’s second project was the Nepean Seniors Home Support Program, which began in November 1986 and finds its home on Richmond Road, just blocks from Harmer House.

Residents at Harmer House get around, and travel together, including this trip to Brockville. The Bells Corners residence relies on seniors to volunteer to get new ideas off the ground, providing a sense of ownership for the residents. In 1989 the land next to Harmer House was acquired by WNREP and 17 life-lease units were added for purchase. The final piece of growth was the E-wing. It was originally intended for seniors that were frailer and needed some support for independent living, but now supports adults in the community living with disabilities. Rae Pederson, a volunteer at Harmer House for the last nine years, said that 60 per cent of the apartments are based on a rent-geared-to-income formula subsidized by the city. The market rent for the units is still quite low – averaging $736 per month for a one-bedroom unit and $877 per month for two bedrooms. The 17 life-lease units have monthly management fees based on their size. Pederson said volunteers make things work and lead everything from a morning cafe to computer classes. “The atmosphere is great here,” Pederson said, adding that she thinks it’s the socialization aspect and sense of community that keep the residents young. “We have one resident who is 99 years old and doesn’t even need a cane,” she said. “Everyone just seems to stay young.”

A garage sale at Harmer House increases residents’ interaction with neighbours in the Westcliffe Estates neighbourhood. Jessica Podpallock is the program co-ordinator for the outreach day program, which encourages independence through recreational activities. It runs Tuesday to Friday each week. ANNIVERSARY PARTY “We try to encourage even the shyest residents to get out there and talk to people because it

makes all the difference,” Pederson said. In keeping with the spirit of the place, Harmer House will host a celebration on Aug. 22 to ring in 25 years serving seniors. Original board members, volunteers and the community members have been invited to join in between 4 and 7 p.m. “It’s going to be a lot of fun,” Pederson said.



Continued from front “It’s a great thing for patients because they can now have the surgeries when they had planned, so they don’t have to put their lives on hold,” he said. Acharya said the move will also improve staff morale. “There are 52 weeks in

a year, so if we are reducing OR staff for 10 weeks it’s hard to plan a life,” he said. Ottawa West-Nepean MPP Bob Chiarelli said that as MPP he chose to focus on growth at the QCH and care for seniors. He said he was proud to stand by his government’s record on healthcare issues and championed

local health integration networks (LHINs), the umbrella organizations that help make health care decisions in regions across the province. “Without the work of the Champlain LHIN we wouldn’t be here today making this announcement,” he said, adding that the creation of the LHINs saves $98 million

annually. “The alternative of the LHINs is having our local healthcare decisions made in a high rise in Toronto.” Alex Munter, CEO of the Champlain LHIN, said the Queensway Carleton is poised to improve on an already great record of providing quality seniors care in an area with a rap-

idly aging population. “The increased funds for the Queensway Carleton Hospital will strengthen our regional health system, resulting in improved access to care for patients and more opportunities to develop innovative health programs,” Munter said. The funding will help the hospital to make use of the space created by

the first two phases of the hospital’s expansion. The QCH is one of the 32 hospitals across the province expanding their services. “Our government has been working hard to modernize hospital infrastructure across the province and we are making tremendous progress,” Chiarelli said.

Thirty-five pedestrians were killed on Ottawa roads in traffic collisions and another 1,702 pedestrians were injured between 2006 and 2010, To help reduce those numbers, Ottawa police will focus on pedestrian safety and red light running in August. Red light running is also a serious issue on Ottawa roadways. In 2010 alone, 764 reportable collisions occurred due to drivers failing to stop for red lights.

Troy Ireland, front, and Brendan Schock, at rear, of the Baseline Cowboys carry a donation of empty beer bottles to the Beer Store at College Square. The group of friends plans to raise money for charity one Wednesday each month by taking donations of cash or empties.

“ If this is the circus of the 21st century, things are looking up! ” San Fransisco Chronicle


A group of friends dubbed the Baseline Cowboys has turned their notoriety into a chance to raise funds for a good cause. The group of five guys lives together in a house at 1605 Baseline Rd. and has gained a little fame for hanging out on a couch in their front yard each Wednesday afternoon. The gang displays signs that give passing commuters a chuckle, such as Keep Your Coins, We Want Change. The group recently decided to cash in on their notoriety by encouraging people

to make donations to charity. On Aug. 3, they traded their couch for lawn chairs and parked themselves near the College Square Beer Store. There they accepted donations of cash or empty beer bottles, with the proceeds going to Christie Lake Kids, which provides recreation, arts and leadership programs in the city and at a camp for kids who wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford the experience. The cowboys’ Facebook friends chose the charity in an online poll. “We’re going to try to make this a monthly event,” said shirtless cowboy Shaun Sullivan, who added that donations during the first few hours at the Beer Store were encouraging. The group was at the store until 6 p.m. on Wednesday. Find them on Facebook to hook up with future fundraisers.

Bruins fans meet their Cup Continued from front “I thought it would be neat,” he said, adding about 2,000 people showed up at the university campus earlier in the day to see the Cup. “I really wanted to give back.” Over 100 people lined up to get photos touching, kissing and hugging the Stanley Cup. Nepean residents and Boston Bruins fans John Rassi and his son Matthew showed up at the club around 10:20 a.m. in full Bruins gear to secure themselves a spot.

“You never know how many people might show up,” said John. “I’ve been a fan since 1968. We just want to congratulate Peter Chiarelli for putting this awesome team together. We’re looking forward to a repeat next year.” He said watching the Bruins win on TV this past June was an uplifting experience. “I’ve been waiting for this since ’72,” said John, the last time the Bruins won the Stanley Cup. “I never understood people who honk their horns (after a Stanley Cup win), then I was the one making all the noise.”

Fit Minds focus on your brain Cognitive interaction presentation Aug. 22 JESSICA CUNHA

A local company that focuses on the aging brain is hosting a presentation on how to help Alzheimer’s and dementia patients at the Valley Stream Manor in Nepean on Aug. 22. Fit Minds is hosting one-hour event, which will focus on how cognitive interaction can help those suffering from forms of dementia, said

Paul de Grandpré, chief operating officer of Fit Minds. “Cognitive interaction is one of the things that really helps,” he said. “This is very straightforward and non-evasive. There is no chance for negative side effects from it.” The event is open to everyone, he said, including family and professional caregivers for those with Alzheimer’s or dementia. He said there will be examples of tools and activities people can use to help improve brain function. Some include music, critical thinking, visual spatial orientation and memory. One example is Picasso art cards. “They’re both beautiful

and interesting and serve as a discussion point, memory game or patterning,” said de Grandpré, adding items around the house can be used in such activities. EASY TO DO “The approach of having out of the box, easy to use activities that stimulate the areas of cognition are the key areas we’re keen on communicating to people,” he said. “The main goal here is just to get the message out that this is something that people can do.” The free presentation will take place at Valley Stream Manor, 2 Valley Stream Dr., on Aug. 22, at 7 p.m.

Is OC ready for route changes?


t’s easy to be lulled into a false sense of security by weekends at the cottage, sun-filled days and repeated reassurances that 93 per cent of trips on OC Transpo won’t be changing after the summer vacation. With riders’ rage over the route “optimization” behind us, chatter about the topic has subsided, leaving us to wonder: is Ottawa ready? When riders head to their bus stops on Sept. 4, will they have ingrained the knowledge of their new routes, helpfully posted at transit stops last week? Or will they be woefully unprepared to get from Point A to Point B? What about bus drivers? They are busy learning the new routes, but we wonder if they can prepare themselves for the onslaught of rider complaints that will inevitably hit them. With a slew of new stops to contend with, the Next Stop Announcement System’s newly glitchfree stop calls won’t last for long. What the city means when it says 93 per cent of trips won’t be affected is that you will still be able to take the bus to and from 93 per cent of the places that you can today.

But where your stop is located, how often the bus comes and at which times, where you need to transfer and how long it will take – those things will likely be changing. It’s enough to make you fear the grouchy, frustrated atmosphere that seems poised to envelop local buses. The optimization is not without improvements. The major obvious benefit is the cost saving: $22 million by next year. Some routes will get improved or more frequent service. And it can’t hurt to simplify the city’s overly complex transit system. (Have you ever tried to give transit directions to people unfamiliar with the city and transit system?) The changes are a means to an end, of course. With a level of service that outstrips most North American cities, something needed to be done differently before OC Transpo bankrupted the city. But before we can appreciate a sustainable and financially stable transit system, we will have to get through these growing (or shrinking) pains.


The skinny on gluten


latulence has no place in a marriage, or so a recently wedded friend tells me. She came to visit from out of town. Like so many women before her, she bemoaned falling victim to the post-honeymoon, early-thirties weight gain that afflicts so many of us. This is a woman who attends twice-weekly boot camp, religiously goes to the gym, and clocks up to 17,000-steps a day at work on her pedometer. If she’s bloated and farting in bed, what hope is there for the rest of us? As it turns out, there is hope. Working closely with a physical trainer and dietician in June, my friend’s long-held suspicion that she may have a wheat sensitivity has been confirmed. Within weeks of eliminating wheat and other products containing gluten from her diet, she has passed wind significantly less often and, more importantly, shed a few pounds. “About 15-20 per cent of my clients have a wheat or gluten sensitivity,” says Kathy Smart, an Ottawa-based nutritional consultant. “Even if you’re not celiac – which is a whole different thing – ingesting gluten may cause digestion issues, skin issues, fatigue, and it can affect metabolism.” Smart, who advises a number of OtNepean Edition

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse tawa organizations, including local grocery chain Farm Boy, on how to prepare food for specialized diets, says the recognition of gluten sensitivity has started to enter the mainstream consciousness. A certified holistic teaching chef, Smart is releasing her fourth cookbook this month, with over 60 healthy recipes, all of them gluten-free. She’s also launching Ottawa’s first gluten-free cooking show on Rogers in October. “Within the last five years gluten sensitivity has become a lot more prominent,” says Smart. “More celebrities have come out in support of a glutenfree diet, and medical doctors are seeing patients who’ve been complaining of various problems for 20 years feel better when they eliminate gluten from their diets.”

Besides the metabolic drag that gluten sensitivity can trigger, focusing on fruits and vegetables, lean proteins and whole grains like rice as part of a gluten-free diet also make it easier to lose weight, if that’s your goal. A lot of processed foods, including instant gravies, soya sauce and certain spice blends contain gluten, so it’s best to read labels as you reach for these seemingly harmless items. “It’s really about getting back to food in its natural state,” explains Smart. “We were never really meant to eat cookies, cakes and breads to that extent in the first place.” If you can’t see giving up baked treats anytime soon, it’s worth noting that a number of gluten-free flours and alternatives are showing up amidst traditional products on grocery shelves. But baker beware: Cooking with gluten-free flour is a bit of a science. I found out the hard way when my friend was here. Eager to be a good host, I had picked up a bag of all-purpose gluten-free flour, determined to make pancakes from scratch. The end product was flat and dry – anything but appetizing – not to mention the fact that the kids required a steak knife to get through the quarter-inch round. “You really can’t just substitute one

cup of gluten-free flour for one cup of regular flour,” says Smart with a laugh. “I always add an extra egg when I’m cooking gluten-free because you need to use a lot more liquid. Also, try not to let the products sit out on the counter for too long once they come out of the oven. Trap it in a bag to keep it moist.” Going gluten-free isn’t necessary for everyone, but if you’ve had underlying metabolic or health issues – even inexplicable fatigue – it may be worth a go. “There’s really nothing to lose by trying it,” says Smart. Charles Gordon will return Aug. 18.

Some of Canada’s best show-jumpers, including Ian Millar, will be at the Nepean National Equestrian Park on Corkstown Road over the coming two weekends.

Trailers, party tents and truckloads of portable toilets have been making their way down Highway 417 for days in preparation for the National Capital Show Jumping Tournament at the Nepean National Equestrian Park. “You’d be forgiven if you thought the circus was in town,” says Ainsley Hayes, the co-ordinator and a member of the Hayes family that has produced the province’s highest-level equestrian show-jumping competition for 25 years. “We are literally creating a village out of a field.” More than 30,000 spectators are expected to flood the gates over eight days of competition beginning Aug. 10. Approximately 3,000 horses have registered to compete in a variety of courses. “The course gets changed throughout the day and every day of the week,” says Hayes. Two internationally-renowned course designers, including two-time Olympic designer Leopoldo Palacios, will set the tracks over the two separate weeks of events. The Nepean venue is considered by many to be one of the best grass jumping fields in North America. “There is really an art and a talent behind the designs,” says Hayes. “If the designer sees that there is a very strong field of horses and competitors, they will make it more technical. But if they see there are a lot of up-and-comers just starting to enter international rings, they’ll make easier; a nice introduction for the horses and riders.” Prizes range up to $75,000 for the CSI Brookstreet Grand Prix, to be held Aug. 21. The event will feature myriad local equestrian talent, but has also attracted competitors from

across the country and the world. The Nepean competition allows jumpers to earn valuable points toward future competitions worldwide. IAN MILLAR Perth, Ontario’s Ian Millar, 64, will defend his title on the final day of the competition. The winner of more than 40 grand prix titles worldwide, Millar helped the Canadian equestrian team secure a silver medal at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. Even if show jumping isn’t normally your cup of tea, Hayes says the fourth annual show in Nepean is always an exciting and fun family event. “We’ve tried to keep the gate prices low so families will come out and enjoy the afternoon,” says Hayes. “There’s a great vendor area offering more than just equestrian stuff, as well as tons of local food. And kids can go around and visit the horses, pet the horses, which they love.”

Participating will also demonstrate support for staff and parents in the GLBT community, he added. “There are probably a lot of staff, not only teachers but support staff as well, who are part of the GLBTTQ community and this shows their employer is supportive of who they are as well.� The public board already encourages gay-straight alliances, or GSAs, in

schools to provide a safe space to talk about sexuality issues and to fight homophobia. It has also conducted an extensive and controversial student survey covering everything from parental income to student sexual orientation, in an effort to better know the board’s student body and gear its resources toward appropriate programs. It also organizes an annual Rainbow Youth Forum each fall to discuss GLBT student issues.

Home renovator convicted of cheating elderly homeowner On Aug. 3, Hubert Belisle, operating as H.B. Expert Pro-Renovations in Renfrew, Ont., pleaded guilty to engaging in an unfair practice under Ontario’s Consumer Protection Act and was sentenced to 90 days in jail and two years probation.. In March 2009, Belisle approached an 85-year-old homeowner in Ottawa and sold him on various repairs and improvements to his house. Belisle estimated the work would cost $31,000 and requested and received a deposit of $15,000.

Over the next few months Belisle talked the homeowner into several other repairs and received more than $18,000 in additional fees – even though the original work was not completed. The homeowner, a Second World War veteran and widower, has lived in the house since 1960 when he and his wife designed and built it. In addition to the jail and probation, Belisle was sentenced to a restitution order of $34,591. Belisle will return to court in January 2012 to face additional charges from different complainants.

The Ottawa West Ball Hockey League’s bantam all-star team proved to be Ontario’s best at the provincial championships in Mississauga on July 10.

Ottawa West takes crown Every year the Ottawa West Ball Hockey League puts together two all-star teams – one bantam and one midget – to represent Ottawa in the provincial championship tournament. This year’s tournament was held in Mississauga on July 9 and 10 and the Ottawa West team won the Ontario bantam championship. The team played six games, losing only one in the round-

robin but they were able to move into the playoffs with a wildcard berth. They won the first playoff game on Saturday with an 8-1 score. Ottawa was able to hold on against the tournament’s top seeded team – the Withrow Park Knights from Toronto, to win the tournament and gain a berth in next year’s national championships.

Back to School Did you know?

Food for thought:

(MS) Cyberbullying occurs when a child is embarrassed, harassed, humiliated, threatened, or tormented by another child using the Internet, mobile phones or another interactive and digital technology. Just as genuine a concern as bullying, cyberbullying has resulted in children killing others or even committing suicide. Cyberbullying occurs when minors are on both sides of bullying or if the bullying was at least insti-

Keeping your kids sharp for a great back-to-school start (NC) Parents have an important role to play in their children’s education. Going back to school is always an adjustment for kids after summer break, but making sure they eat well will help boost their energy and their brain power. Canadian research shows that a child’s behaviour, learning capacity, cognitive performance and school attendance are affected by proper nutrition. “It is important for parents to provide children with healthy foods to keep them alert throughout the day,” says registered dietitian Cara Rosenbloom. “Healthy food consumption directly relates to better learning.” It is easy to incorporate foods into your child’s diet that are great for brain development and knowledge retention: Begin with breakfast including Neilson Dairy Oh! milk, which contains DHA, an omega-3 fatty acid which supports the normal physical development of the brain, eyes and nerves Ditch the sugary snack bars and pack blueberries for recess snack instead. Blueberries may help improve

learning capacity and memory—they also provide a natural carbohydrate boost to help maintain energy. Lunches including whole grains are always a great option. Whole grains contain fibre and protein, which provide a steady stream of energy and help boost alertness. Include Dairy oh! white or chocolate milk as a snack. A 2010 study showed that children who drank milk about four times per week had better memory and longer attention spans than children who rarely drank milk. Dinner is just as important as any meal when fueling working minds. Protein from chicken, fish or milk helps keep the brain active—perfect for focusing on homework! Serving up healthy foods that contain complex carbohydrates, protein and, omega-3 fats may improve a child’s concentration, memory and attentiveness. Kids will also learn good eating habits by example, so remember to integrate these foods into your own diet to demonstrate the importance of healthy eating.

SuperEx missing, but film fills void DANIEL NUGENT-BOWMAN

When an independent film documenting the history of the SuperEX premieres at Lansdowne Park on Aug. 18, Lyn and David Presley won’t miss it for the world. While the Manotick residents are both past presidents of the Central Canada Exhibition Association (CCEA), the SuperEX means much more to them than being board members. “We met each other at the exhibition and my husband was a concessionaire there before we married,” Lyn said. “His father played in the band at the exhibition so my husband was at the exhibition every day of his life.” With stories like that, the pair will both be prominently featured in interviews for Memories of the Ex: 122 Years at Lansdowne, a privately-funded filmed produced by Robert and Sharon Newton. “David was kind of a source of knowledge for them,” Lyn said, noting that her husband

passed on various contacts that were used by the producers. “We just tried to help them as much as we could and steer them in the right direction.” Lyn said she remembers watching the night-time fireworks on top of her family’s nearby house and notes that this will be the first time her husband has not been to the SuperEX since he was a toddler. Last February, the CCEA board announced to suspend the SuperEX for 2011, marking the first time since 1888 that no exhibition will be held with the exception of during both world wars. The decision was made because of the redevelopment plans at Lansdowne Park and high cost of operating at a temporary site for 2011, the SuperEx’s website read. But that didn’t stop the Newtons from forging ahead on their project. While Robert had produced two smaller documentaries in the past, including one about the Carleton Place Canoe Club, he admitted that this one be-

came a different animal. Originally the film was supposed to be 44 minutes – an hour’s worth of television time – but morphed into a 100-minute production because of all the interesting interviews and footage, taking nearly a year to complete. Robert said he has enough material for a six-hour mini-series and wouldn’t rule out the possibility if asked to do so. “It was such an important part of Ottawa’s heritage and history,” he said. Robert described the film as being for “plain old Ex lovers,” something that certainly the Presleys can relate to. While Lyn has yet to view the film, she expects the premiere to pull at the heartstrings of many people. “It will be a lasting memory of some of the things at Lansdowne Park, which if they hadn’t done this, some of those memories would be lost,” she said. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show starts at 8 p.m.

The SuperEx had been a staple at Lansdowne Park since 1888 until a decision to suspend the summertime amusement was made last February. Now a film documenting the 122-year history at the site will premiere at Lansdowne on Aug. 18.
