ROSSS’s Metcalfe office relocates Town hall a quick fix while ROSSS waits for Morrow House Emma Jackson

EMC news - The Metcalfe outreach office for Rural Ottawa South Support Services has made a temporary home in Metcalfe’s old town hall. ROSSS had previously operated its outreach office from the Township of Osgoode Care Centre on Snake Island Road, but that lease expired on March 31. ROSSS has long been eyeing Morrow House, a vacant city building in Metcalfe, as a possible new location for its rural outreach centre. But ROSSS is waiting for the city to find enough money in its tight budget to bring the house out of disrepair and make it accessible. In the meantime, the office has moved to a small space behind the old council chambers in what is now the city’s client service centre in Metcalfe. “We do have a lease for a limited period of time and in the meantime the city would be looking at fixing up the other building,” said ROSSS executive director Nancy Wilson. Morrow House, most recently an insurance broker office, is located just east of the client service centre on Victoria Street. It needs new windows, flooring and accessibility upgrades. Once that work is done, ROSSS’s board of directors chairman Don Slack said the non-profit organization needs to assess what kinds of renovations are needed to turn the building into an appropriate space for seniors’ drop-in programs. While the one-year lease purchases ROSSS some time, Wilson said she’d like to move into Morrow House before the year is up. The organization

is renting storage space for things that wouldn’t fit in the client centre office, and they want to start providing programs for seniors in the area. At this point, it all depends on the city. “A lot of it is related to budget,” Wilson said. Osgoode Coun. Doug Thompson said city staff have not yet worked out a schedule or a cost assessment for renovating the vacant building. He said he is pushing staff to get the work done as soon as possible. “It’s sitting there mostly vacant so it would be a great use and it would be nice to have the building upgraded to present conditions,” he said. “It is possible (to finish within a year) and we certainly will work hard to get the work done.” He said the money would likely come from an existing budget, such as a funding envelope for accessibility upgrades. BETTER FOR EVERYONE

Despite the temporarily cramped quarters, Wilson said leaving the care centre will ultimately be better for both non-profit organizations. ROSSS was unable to provide foot care clinics and other services from its office in the care centre, because the long-term care facility couldn’t allow so many people to come and go from the secure residence. “That was one of our challenges with that site,” Wilson said. “There was always a risk with the doors being open and closed. We’re really excited about this (opportunity to move to Morrow House).” Osgoode Care Centre executive director Lori Norris said the move gives her more space to work with as the centre takes on more in-house services for its residents. She noted that the conversation to move out of the care centre began at the end of November 2010. See NEW, page 7

Manotick homeowners could get sewer fee break Laura Mueller

EMC news - The city plans to write off $1 million of the $10 million it is owed from property owners who had agreed to pay tax levies for local infrastructure improvements. Most of the outstanding charges – 70 per cent – are related to local projects like the Manotick sanitary sewer extensions and an extension to

Legget Drive that were constructed over the last four years. The city can allow property owners to pay for a portion of work that wouldn’t be warranted under city policies, such as extending a water main farther down a street than planned in order to provide service to additional properties. Some of that money likely can’t be recovered because of a loophole. See HOMEOWNERS, page 5

The concert series began as a fundraising initiative, but McGovern said

Things will be a bit livelier for this show, a little bit louder. TERRY MCGOVERN

MonleyJunk’s music is described as “a generous helping of swamp rhythm and blues, soul boogie and bedroom funk� and there is bound to be lots of toe tapping and knee slapping in the concert hall, McGovern added. It’s the first time a Juno Awardwinning group has participated in the concert series, which McGovern said is a real treat for the village which doesn’t often have big names come to visit. The Ottawa-based trio won Blues Album of the Year at the 2012 Junos, and it has also won a number of Maple Blues Awards. Tickets are $25 each and are available at Manotick Office Pro and at the mill. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show begins at 7:30 p.m. For those who want to make it dinner and a show, discount coupons are available for the Mill Tavern and Burgers on Main restaurants.

EMC news - A pumped-up performance from Ottawa blues trio MonkeyJunk may be just the kind of celebration Manotick needs as Watson’s Mill begins its long-awaited roof replacement project this week. MonkeyJunk’s boogie beats and righteous rhythms are coming to the village on Saturday, April 13 as part of the mill’s ongoing Raise the Roof concert series, which have been fundraising to replace the heritage grist mill’s roof since last year. The mill needed $500,000 to replace the roof, which has been badly leaking for several years. About $300,000 of that came from government and non-profit grants, but the other $200,000 had to be raised through the community. Right now, the Raise the Roof committee has collected about 97 per cent of its fundraising goal. That meant the contractors were able to begin the replacement process on April 8, when they arrived at the Dickinson Square site to install scaffolding and prepare for construction. The new aluminum roof will include a discreet ventilation system at its peak that will allow hot air to escape the often stuffy mill. “It gets really, really warm in there and the air doesn’t exhaust,� explained Raise the Roof chairman Terry McGovern. “It’s going to be way cooler.� He said the roof will look similar to the current silver top, although the new aluminum will likely be pretty shiny for the first while. “Over the next couple of years it will settle down into that aluminum look,� he said.

the shows have morphed into a cultural staple in the village. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about raising money but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also about bringing the music culture to Manotick,â&#x20AC;? he said. Several high profile artists have graced the village over the past year, and they bring tourists with them, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a win-win that way.â&#x20AC;? With consistently successful turnouts, McGovern said the concerts will continue throughout the summer and fall. Once the last three per cent of roof funds are raised, any extra money will go into a capital fund for future mill repairs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The next time there is some kind of repair to be made there will be a bit of a nest egg,â&#x20AC;? he said. During winter the concerts are held at the Manotick United Church. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where MonkeyJunk will unleash their sound, which McGovern promises to be â&#x20AC;&#x153;lively.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Things will be a bit livelier for this show, a little bit louder,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re expecting it to be the best attended and just really, really fun.â&#x20AC;?

Volunteers are an integral part of the Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Aid Society of Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (CASO) work, generously donating approximately 30,000 hours of their time each year. Volunteer tasks are varied and ďŹ&#x201A;exible, matching interests and skills with volunteer positions and working with peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s busy schedules. While some of CASOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s volunteer opportunities require a moderate time commitment, Special Assignments allow for more ďŹ&#x201A;exibility. Special Assignment include: SUBMITTED organizing, knitting and crafts, providing Ottawa blues trio MonkeyJunk will perform at the entertainment, or acting as photographers Manotick United Church on April 13. at events. Volunteer Drivers support the children and youth in care by providing a safe nonjudgmental space where they can comfortably sit in silence or speak with an attentive listener. Child Access Volunteers similarly help to provide a safe space by supervising visits between parents and children. Pre-School Volunteers and Tutor/Mentors provide more formalized guidance. PreSchool Volunteers assist professional staff, guiding children from three months to ďŹ ve years through a variety of weekly programs. Tutors/Mentors, under the supervision of the case worker, help school-aged children with subjects like Math, English and Science, *selected areas only encouraging students to develop their interests and build educational goals.

which touches on several municipalities including Ottawa, Stormont-Dundas-Glengarry and Prescott-Russell. “We have a number of environmental concerns,” Thompson said. “Rivers don’t stop at boundaries, nor do forests and forested areas. There are a lot of tie-ins between municipalities.” He also wants to review the conditions of dams and other water-related infrastructure in the South Nation area, Thompson said. “Some of those dams were built 50 years ago and I want to make sure they don’t need to replaced,” he said. Thompson will serve a twoyear term as vice-chairman.

EMC news - Osgoode Coun. Doug Thompson made good on his threat to cancel the city’s support of a Rogers communications tower in Greely unless the company considered an alternate location farther from homes. The city does not have the final say over approving the location of telecommunication infrastructure – that job falls to the federal government. “My motion I understand is quite a drastic step… but it’s the right decision,” Thompson told councillors. To give the motion extra weight, College Coun. Rick Chiarelli called for a recorded vote. All council members in attendance voted in favour. Thompson still wants to convince Rogers that it should move the antenna from the proposed site at 1536 Sale Barn Rd. farther down the road to a city-owned vacant piece of land at 6326 Bank St., just south of where Sale Barn Road meets Bank. While a meeting between Rogers and the city has not been scheduled, Rogers spokeswoman Patricia Law wrote in an email that the company “look(s) forward to working with the municipality to try to find a solution as soon as possible in order to provide better wireless service for our customers.” Improving wireless service for its customers is the company’s priority, Law wrote. “With more and more Canadians using their wireless devices at home, we need to

increase our network capacity and speeds by building additional cell sites,” Law wrote. Thompson said cell towers are important but don’t trump all other concerns. “What is equally important is the location of these communications towers,” he said. The proposed 70-metre tower would be too close to homes, Thompson said. More importantly, he says, Rogers only met the bare minimum requirements for public consultation, which meant only 10 or so properties at the edge of a subdivision were notified about the proposed cell tower.

In my opinion they didn’t fulfill to the letter of the law what they should have done. COUN. DOUG THOMPSON

“They did go through the procedure but in my opinion they didn’t fulfill to the letter of the law what they should have done,” Thompson said. “In my opinion, they should have let the rest of the subdivision know.” Bruce Brayman, president of the Greely Community Association, said Thompson’s motion was a good call. “I said from the beginning, even if they followed the process, one part of it was make an effort to avoid residences,” he wrote in an email. “(It) just doesn’t seem like they made an effort.” When the councillor spoke to a representative from Rogers, he was told the company may have been willing to consider relocating the tower earlier, but they are too far along in the process to reconsider it now. Thompson said the representative from Rogers also told him it would take around a year to find, assess and get approvals for a new location.

Homeowners off the hook for $1M Continued from the front


Participants in last year’s inaugural Heel ‘N Wheel fundraiser celebrate the end of their journey to the hospital.

And they’re off! Emma Jackson

EMC news - Teams in the Winchester hospital’s Heel ‘N Wheel event will have more time to fundraise this year. The Winchester District Memorial Hospital Foundation has launched the second annual Heel ‘N Wheel event for local cancer care a month early in an effort to help teams get better organized and have a head start soliciting donations for the September 7 walking and cycling event. Foundation spokeswoman Chelsea McIntyre said last year’s inaugural event, which launched April 30, was slow-

Morrisburg, Russell, Osgoode or South Mountain, with all routes ending at the hospital in Winchester. Each route is between 20 and 30 kilometres long. Pedestrians start between 9 and 10 a.m. and cyclists leave between 2 and 3 p.m. At 4 p.m. everyone comes together for a celebration barbecue and party. Adults must raise $500 to participate and kids must raise $100. Families with multiple adults and kids have modified pledge minimums. There are endless opportunities to raise the money. “We had teams do raffles, garage sales, bake sales, and personal canvassing to raise funds last year,” said Arnold Scheerder, chairman of the hospital foundation. “We hope that having registration open now will help everyone get started.” Teams can register at www.

er to start because it took time for residents to learn about the event, organize a team and register. By the time they were actually fundraising, it was already the summer. “We’re hoping the extra month will be getting teams together and getting everyone organized and getting people excited,” McIntyre said. “We’re hoping they’ll have their teams solidified and have the entire spring and summer to fundraise.” The event raised $70,000 for the hospital’s cancer care program last year, and McIntyre said the foundation wants to raise the same this year. “We’re thrilled with people’s participation and the money is a bonus,” she said. The Heel ‘N Wheel event supports local cancer care at the hospital. Cyclists and pedestrians start their journey from Crysler, Finch, Greely,

There are a few reasons why the fees haven’t been collected. Some are administrative and relate to legislative delays and research necessary for launching the committee of revision, while other delays are caused by the length of the construction projects and the staff time required to “triage” the new projects. The committee’s approval was also needed to allow the city to accept a payment for a water main project on Navan Road that was completed before council passed a bylaw enabling it to impose local improvement charges. The total $17,708 in fees for that project have been paid in full.

Heel ‘N Wheel fundraiser gets a head start

If the property changed hands and the local improvement fee wasn’t registered on the properties’ title, the city is pretty much out of luck. The city could take those new owners to court, said Rideau-Rockcliffe Coun. Peter Clark, who sits on the finance and economic development committee, but lawyers advised that the city likely wouldn’t be successful. With that in mind, the finance committee agreed that outstanding local improvement charges should be dismissed if the owner bought the property after the infrastructure construction and if the tax certificate did not list the pending charges. Those property owners will also have to sign an affidavit saying they were not aware of the pending charges when they bought the property. That would apply to 73 property owners who should be on the hook to pay the city a total of $1.1 million. Council was set to vote for final approval on the matter on April 10. The city has taken steps to ensure this doesn’t happen again. Property tax certificates will be required to have a note listing the local improvement charge. A committee of revision hearing, which is required in case property owners want to appeal the amount they were charged for their portion of the work, must happen within a year of the end of the project’s warranty period. Those measures have been in place since 2010.

EMC news - The annual Books, Beads and Breakfast fundraiser has gotten too big for its britches and the Metcalfe grannies hope that means more money for African grandmothers. The third annual breakfast event on Friday, April 19 has moved to Anderson Links Golf and Country Club this year because it has become too popular to be contained at the previous golf club venue on Albion Road. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still very, very popular,â&#x20AC;? said organizer Bev McKibbon, who leads the Grannies All About Kids chapter of Grandmothers to Grandmothers in Metcalfe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s getting to be very well known.â&#x20AC;? McKibbon said demand for tickets is so high this year theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve printed 30 per

cent more than usual, which means about 150 tickets are available for guests outside the Grannies group. Each $25 ticket entitles guests to a catered breakfast and access to a used book exchange. Guests can also purchase Kazuri jewelry made by Kenyan women. All proceeds from the event will go to the Stephen Lewis Foundation supporting grandmothers raising their grandchildren orphaned by HIV/AIDS in Africa. Last year, the Grannies raised $2,700 for the foundation and McKibbon said they hope to better that this year. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event will include guest speaker Peggy Edwards, an Ottawa resident who brought the Kazuri jewelry line to Canada.

The Grade 6 student won ďŹ rst place in her age category in the Ottawa Public Libraryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Awesome Authors writing contest this year, adding to last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second place certiďŹ cate as well as several local and provincial writing awards. Her short story â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hunt of the Theropodâ&#x20AC;? captured the imagination of

the annual contestâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s judges this year. At the awards ceremony on March 26, the judges took turns reading excerpts from winning entries before they announced the authorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name. When they announced the age nine to 11 category winners, Maxwell was surprised to hear her words resounding from the speakers in the Ben Franklin Place auditorium. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They just started reading, and I thought â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my story,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Maxwell said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of weird. You think, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;did I really write that?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Her story follows a theropod dinosaur named Lara as she tracks her next meal: an unsuspecting herbivorous dinosaur. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have an exact plot, it was just sort of an exciting event,â&#x20AC;? Maxwell explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Usually I write in third person and I try to put a lot of descriptions in my writing.â&#x20AC;? Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s particularly fond of writing from an animalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perspective. Her second place award last year featured

a cat that sets out to bring down the evil cat king of his city. She said author Erin Hunter, who writes the cat-themed series Warriors, taught her a lot about getting inside an animalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mind. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where I really got my inspiration of writing the point of view of animals,â&#x20AC;? she said. After sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done school, Maxwell plans to write ďŹ ction in her spare time. Although she would like to be an author full-time, she said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too difďŹ cult to earn a living that way. For her ďŹ rst-place win, Maxwell received a $50 gift card at Chapters, which she said sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll probably use to buy some books on her reading list as well as some art books. Drawing is another of Maxwellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hobbies, although she doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t commit as much time to it as writing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I prefer writing to drawing, but a lot of my work is covered in doodles,â&#x20AC;? Maxwell said. Dylan Stephenson, an 11-year-old

New office a win-win for ROSSS, care centre

Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when Wilsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s predecessor Catherine Rutka told Norris the organization was looking for a more convenient location. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The community thinks we kicked them out, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not true,â&#x20AC;? Norris said. Until that point, Osgoode Home Support (which existed before the amalgamated ROSSS) had only been paying $215 a month for rent, which included hydro, housekeeping and security. Norris said she put the rent up when she realized her non-proďŹ t facility was actually paying to have them in the space. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was starting to come off the backs of the residents,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was spending money to have them there.â&#x20AC;? Norris said sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happy for ROSSS, which can now operate a more accessible service centre for clients. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a win-win for both. If you think of outreach services, they should be portable and in a storefront,â&#x20AC;? she said.

cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ongoing Dickinson Square redevelopment project. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This has been intended from the very beginning to be an outreach ofďŹ ce,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has nothing to do with the corporate head ofďŹ ce.â&#x20AC;? ROSSSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s headquarters occupy the Ayres building, a city heritage building in Dickinson Square which will be put on the market in the spring as part of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan to recoup its expenses to acquire the buildings. Slack said that with 31 people on ROSSSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s payroll â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who already rotate desks at the cramped Manotick ofďŹ ce â&#x20AC;&#x201C; staff would never ďŹ t into the much smaller Morrow House, which could likely only accommodate half the people of the Ayres building. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That will not sufďŹ ce. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going to do the job,â&#x20AC;? he said. City planner Dave Powers told ROSSS recently that the $70,000 in repairs and renovations ROSSS has sunk into the Ayres building to make it workable will not be reimbursed to the non-proďŹ t organization if and when the building is sold to a developer. Slack said there is no where for ROSSS to go if the new owner decides to kick ROSSS out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is nothing, nothing in Manotick where we can move,â&#x20AC;? he said. The city is currently holding meetEMMA JACKSON/METROLAND ings with interested developers, and Terry Watson, communications and outreach will likely put the Dickinson Square manager for ROSSS, unpacks at their new office in properties up for sale in June. the Metcalfe client service centre.

Asking a lot of children


tudents at a school in Barrhaven will launch a hiring guide for local businesses this week. The Grade 4 students put a lot of work into their product, meeting with more than 30 local business managers to find out what hiring tools they currently use. The kids have since compiled a hiring guide, which will soon be for sale, with proceeds to Big Brothers, Big Sisters. The goal was to develop something that would help people in the community and the hiring guide could help connect job-seekers with prospective employers. The project was developed with help from the Learning Partnership, a national non-profit organization that promotes the public education system in Canada. The organization is participating in similar projects at 240 schools. By working on the guide, students got a taste of teamwork and the value of all the steps in the business process, say organizers. Encouraging entrepreneurial spirit in youngsters is a good idea, but it’s also reasonable to ask if maybe we’re expecting our kids to grow up a little

too soon. There will be time to learn marketing and project management in high school or at college or university, all before those skills can ever be honed in the real world. Grade 4 is too early for students to choose a future educational goal or career. It’s not clear what skills a nine or 10-year-old might develop today that will be of value when they enter the workforce. Sampling many careers might be a better use of the kids’ time than carrying out one intensive project. Parents of any kids involved in the Learning Partnership programs should share their thoughts with teachers, principals and school board trustees. It would be interesting to know if the parents think their kids’ time was well spent, especially if there was follow-up years later to see if a Grade 4 student went on to bigger things and was inspired or prepared in part by the Learning Partnership program. Without that information over the long term, it’s impossible to say if learning business skills at a young age is the right course or if kids should just be kids for a little longer.


Fixing Queen Street, and other Ottawa fantasies


n Ottawa, even the good news is somewhat mysterious. Take, for example, the word that the city is looking for submissions from engineering consultants on ways to improve Queen Street, so that it will be nice to walk along in a few years when light rail is running underneath it. The mysterious part: how could anyone think that Queen Street can be improved in any way other than blowing it up and starting over again? The Citizen article on the Queen Street study contained the usual allusions to planting more trees and widening sidewalks and adding benches, but hey. There’s no retail on Queen Street, hardly a restaurant and lots of ugly glass buildings. You think wider sidewalks is going to help much? Two years ago, on a Saturday afternoon in April, Tyler Brûlé, the former Ottawan turned London magazine tycoon, was wandering around downtown. Here’s his description, in the Financial Times, of what he saw: “The street was littered with soggy bits of rubbish; some shops were out of business; almost every office tower had a lease sign in the lobby window and it was eerily deserted. I walked a few blocks hoping the urban landscape would improve but the few retail

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town outlets that were open felt tatty and tired, the streets were buckling and full of potholes and every other block was punctuated by a vacant property, an empty parking lot and restaurant closed for business, permanently.” Not a bad description and it obviously made an impression, because Brûlé was invited back to Ottawa, where he spent two years in the ‘80s going to Nepean High School, to give a public talk as part of an ideas project to improve the city. For reasons understandable to those who deal with famous people, the deal fell through and the organizers are now looking for another expert. “The vision of bringing someone to give us some advice is still on the table,” Coun. Mathieu Fleury told the Citizen. “We want to bring someone with that kind of Published weekly by:

profile.” As the old saying goes, an expert is someone from out of town. Too many cities get their reputation from the guy who spends two days there and writes an analysis based on the airport, the personality of the taxi driver who brings him from the airport, the hotel, two restaurants near the hotel, the street the hotel is on and the taxi driver who takes him back to the airport. A guy who walked around the Glebe or the Market, rather than Queen Street, would have a different assessment of Ottawa. A guy who stayed in Ottawa South or Kanata would think differently from a guy who stayed at the Westin. Which is not to say that Queen Street is not awful. It is. It’s just that we don’t need to pay someone to tell us that. Many of the problems that plague our city are obvious to anyone who lives here and don’t require expert advice. If you want a vibrant Queen Street, put some stores on it. For those stores to thrive they need customers, people who live downtown. That means apartment buildings instead of office buildings. People have known this for decades, people who are not from out of town.

Persuading business and government to do anything about it is, and always has been, the problem. It costs money. As time passes without anything being done people learn to live without downtown. They have their neighbourhood stores and restaurants, if they are lucky enough to have that kind of neighbourhood. If not, they have the nearest mall, where there are stores and the parking is free and easy to find. If Queen Street is awful, it ceases to matter to a lot of folks. And that makes it harder to find the will to fix it. Maybe this time will be different.

Learning partnership leads to fitness campaign



Earn Extra Money! Keep Your Weekends Free!

Jennifer McIntosh

EMC news – A learning partnership has created a class of junior entrepreneurs at Knoxdale Public School. Ben Shepherd’s Grade 5 and 6 students have been working on a project to keep their peers moving. Their business model – called Full Speed Ahead – attempts to market wristbands and water bottles with the slogan “Don’t sit, get fit.” “It really works,” Shepherd said. “Over the weekend every time I would sit down to read I would see the wristband and get motivated to get up and do something.” The project is part of an initiative started by a national charity called The Learning Partnership – an organization that promotes public education. The project is designed to get the students out in the community and learning to apply their learned skills to the real world. Samantha Lin, a student working on the project, said her class got sponsorship money from a Canadian Tire store to purchase the bottles and wrist bands. Any money left over will go to Jumpstart, a charity aimed at making recreational activities available to kids regardless of their parent’s income. “We wanted to do a fitness business because physical exercise isn’t the priority any


Ben Shepherd’s class of grade 5 and 6 students will be launching their business model in attempt to raise money for Jumpstart. more,” Lin said. Lindsay Jeffereson, a Manotick resident, who comes to the school for the gifted French immersion program, said she would be helping to lead some of her peers in dance on April 24. The class voted on what type of product they would sell and then decided on the name and slogan diplomatically. The name was picked because it denotes movement, Shepherd said. Students also approached store managers about sponsorship and designed a marketing campaign as part of the project. Their target demographic was youth aged 10 to 17. “One of the things we found most important is that each group have a leader,” Amanda McCarthy said. “There had to be someone for people to follow to push the project forward. We couldn’t just have followers or nothing would

have gotten done.” Alim Dhanani said the class ordered the bottles and the wristbands from different websites. They have been selling them at the school or in their neighbourhoods since March Break. Wristbands are $2 and the bottles are $6. “We found some colours sell better than others,” Dhanani said. “Green and blue sold really well, but red and yellow aren’t as popular.” Now that sales have begun, the class has decided on a launch party to sell more of their stock and to promote fitness in the school. The launch is set to take place on April 24 and 25. Students in Shepherd’s class are working on grade-appropriate dances so they can teach their peers about fitness and showcase their products at the same time.

Osgoode theatre celebrates 40 years on stage Staff

EMC news - Old friends, good memories and a touch of nostalgia: thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what Osgoodeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oldest theatre company promises this month as it celebrates 40 years on the stage. Isle in the River Review will host a 40th anniversary gala at the Osgoode Legion on Saturday, April 27, and according to event coordinator Krista Lang, it promises to be a delightful trip down memory lane. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The gala is geared toward patrons, audiences, members and all our volunteers past and present,â&#x20AC;? said Lang, whose own parents, Ross and Edith Batstone, were two of the theatreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s founding members. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is also the perfect chance for new people who are interested in learning more to meet us.â&#x20AC;? The semi-formal event starts at 7 p.m. with drinks and appetizers, music from the past four decades and a chance to see old photos of friends and family in their wackiest costumes. The nostalgia will only grow as guests peruse a collection of photo albums, programs, and a wall of fame listing every person who has ever been listed in a program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll also have a table set up with information from the other local theatres, because weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve borrowed and rented their props and costumes, and even used their actors,â&#x20AC;? said Lang, adding that any area theatres who want to be featured at the gala should contact her. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be a night full of dancing, music, food, old friends, good memories and a great time. We went with a semi-formal feel because this is a really special event. We wanted to dress it up a little,â&#x20AC;? said Lang, adding that guests should wear black, white, burgundy and silver. There will also be a cash bar and door prizes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a thank you from ITR to everyone who has ever contributed. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think my parents ever imagined it would go on for 40 years.â&#x20AC;? And yet, it did. Today the theatre is known for performing two full-length comedies or farces every year on the stage at the Osgoode Community Centre. But ITRâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

history is as rich and varied as the characters it portrays. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The very first thing ITR ever did was a Jesus Christ Superstar slide and light show at St. Brigidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Church in Manotick,â&#x20AC;? Lang said.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be a night full of dancing, music, food, old friends, good memories and a great time. KRISTA LANG

â&#x20AC;&#x153;They had slides and a light display timed to the soundtrack of Jesus Christ Superstar. It was pretty cool.â&#x20AC;? The theatre then put on Christmas concerts at St. Leonardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s school in Manotick and eventually full length plays at the hall in Enniskerry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was so much work, it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even funny,â&#x20AC;? Lang remembered. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had to wait until bingo night ended on Wednesday at 11 p.m. and then weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d set up the stage for opening night on Thursday, then take it all down and store the stuff in the St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Church basement across the street and do it all over again the next week.â&#x20AC;? SETTING THE STAGE

ITR eventually found its performance home at the Osgoode Community Centre, as the theatre continued to evolve. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People have come and gone, people have changed, businesses have changed. But the stage has gotten lighter,â&#x20AC;? Lang said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It used to be these huge, heavy planks. They were 10 feet (three metres) long and probably five feet (1.5 m) wide, and it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter where we were, we had to carry those up and down stairs. In Enniskerry we had to build the entire stage. In Osgoode we only had to build the extensions that jut out from the existing stage.â&#x20AC;? Lang notes that theatre has since invested in lighter, more

compact and easy-to-move extensions that are still in use today. The sets themselves are also more elaborate and the theatre now uses wooden flats rather than canvas-covered frames. But Lang is firm on what she believes is the theatreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wisest decision to date. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now they hire a moving company. Best investment ITR ever made,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell you how many backs were strained from moving sets.â&#x20AC;? BRIGHT FUTURE

In the midst of celebrating ITRâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history, president Davis Jermcans said the theatre also has big plans for the future. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking at purchasing a sound-reinforcement system to enable people sitting in the last few rows to hear the actors as though they were sitting up front,â&#x20AC;? said Jermacans. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We would also like to add headsets that people can wear or create an audio loop that would broadcast right into FILE peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hearing aids.â&#x20AC;? From left to right, Yvette Roberge-Venditti, Garnet Quail, Eve Spraggs, Laura Gonis, Ron Jermacans said a base sound Watkins and Meredith Brophy are dressed up for the Isle in the River Reviewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1991 persystem costs around $6,000. formance of Boeing Boeing. The headsets would be added later, but could cost an additional $5,000. To help fund these investments, the theatre is offering special 40th anniversary sponsorship packages for $140 instead of the usual $80. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These patronships come with four free tickets to a show and an $80 tax receipt,â&#x20AC;? Jermacans said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The faster we can raise this money, the sooner our audiences can fully enjoy our shows.â&#x20AC;? Despite the theatreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s constant evolution, Lang said some things will always stay the same. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the last 40 years, ITRâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commitment to the community hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t changed,â&#x20AC;? Lang said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has stayed in the area and we still feature comedies. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what our audiences wanted from us.â&#x20AC;? The anniversary gala begins   at 7 p.m. on Saturday, April 27 at the Royal Canadian Legion The Hospice at May Andrew Haydon in Osgoode, 3284 Sunstrum Court Park St. Tickets are $15 per person or $25 per couple and dress is Registration Begins at 12 Noon Registration: 9 AM - 10AM semi-formal.

However, if desired, add beef as directed in the variation for taco salad. Preparation time: 15 minutes. Cooking time: eight minutes. INGREDIENTS

• 25 ml (2 tbsp) olive oil • 1 medium onion, finely chopped • 1 large carrot, peeled and grated • 1 medium zucchini, grated • 500 g (1 lb) sliced mushrooms • 35g (1.25 oz) envelope reduced salt taco seasoning mix • 50 ml (1/4 cup) water • 12 taco shells, warmed • 4 romaine or iceberg lettuce leaves, thinly sliced • Some finely diced tomato, for garnish (optional) DIRECTIONS

Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and mushrooms. Cook and stir for three to four minutes or until lightly browned. Add the carrot,

zucchini, taco seasoning mix and water, cook and stir to mix well. Lower heat to medium, then cover and cook about four minutes or until vegetables are tender. Uncover and bring to boil until juices evaporate. To serve, place about 50 ml (1/4 cup) filling in each taco shell and top with lettuce and tomato if desired. The tacos can also be served with guacamole. Makes 12 tacos. Tips: To save time, buy pre-sliced mushrooms and grate the carrot and zucchini in a food processor. To warm taco shells, separate and place the shells onto a baking tray and heat in 350 F (180 C) for 10 minutes or until hot. Variation: taco salad. Reduce oil to 15 ml (1 tbsp); add 250 g (1/2 lb) lean ground beef with onion and cook, stirring often until beef is browned. Then add the mushrooms, carrot and zucchini and continue as directed above. Serve hot mixture over salad greens and top with sour cream and chopped green onions. Garnish plate with tomato wedges and taco chips. For more delicious recipe ideas visit Mushrooms Canada at

Unchecked eating disorders in men can kill EMC news - Boys and men fall pretty far down on the list of potential candidates for an eating disorder. Merryl Bear, director of NEDIC, the National Eating Disorder Information Centre, confirms that regardless of race, ethnicity or nationality, research consistently shows that women are more vulnerable than men to disordered eating behaviours or the full syndrome. “That’s no reason to be complacent, or to ignore the needs of males, because eating disorders can kill,” she said. The likelihood of complete recovery is highest when the person receives early, expert treatment at the right level of intensity, she added. “We all – parents, educators and health professionals – need to do a better job of understanding and helping boys and men who struggle with food and weight preoccupation. These are hugely debilitating conditions which affect school, work and relationships.”

The tongue-in-cheek slogan, Men with Eating Disorders: It’s not the name of a band is used by NEDIC in their public awareness campaign. Its mission is to raise the likelihood that men will recognize their malaise as an eating disorder and get help. The campaign also encourages the partner or parents of a loved one to call for support if denial is a factor. Neither those close to the person, nor doctors, tend to think of an eating disorder as an explanation for a male’s ills. Males may also be reluctant to say that they might have something seen as a ‘girl’s problem.’ The harmful effects of binge-eating, purging and restricting are potentially deadly, especially when combined with rigorous exercise and substance abuse. “I was a pudgy kid who got teased,” said Dave, who preferred not to be identified. Unhappy and unable to ask for help without “feeling like a loser,” Dave said he decided

to take control of his body through exercise and dieting. “I thought that being lean and buff would solve my problems,” he said. Instead, it led to increasingly arduous exercise and eating rituals which dominated his life. Unable to sustain this regimen, Dave collapsed and was later admitted to an eating disorder program. Experts report that while anorexia and bulimia are

significant problems, a higher percentage of men with eating disorders tend suffer from binge eating disorder. “There is an increasing awareness and support for males with eating disorders,” said Lisa Naylor of the Manitoba Provincial Eating Disorder Prevention and Recovery Program. “NEDIC’s national helpline is a good place to start.”

Tormentor’s prank helped build character, Mother said MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories on black brogue shoes – Marguirite’s were patent leather and they soon were covered with sand and dust. We pointed this fact out to her, saying we bet her mother would sure be mad when she got home and saw the mess of her good school footwear. Marguirite assured us her mother never got mad at her. Joyce rolled her eyes skyward. We didn’t believe her for a minute.

engrossed in what was in the water-filled ditches. Well, right out of the blue, Marguirite’s foot hit the middle of my back and within seconds she connected with Joyce sending us both sprawling. We went headlong into the water. It wasn’t deep, but we came up spluttering and rubbing our eyes. All we could see of Marguirite was those spindly legs bolting down the Northcote side road. Joyce was out of

Well, right out of the blue, Marguirite’s foot hit the middle of my back and within seconds she connected with Joyce sending us both sprawling. We went headlong into the water.

I couldn’t wait to get to the end of the side road so that this pest would leave us and head off in the direction that would take her on to her house. What if Marguirite decided to walk down past Briscoe’s General Store? That would mean she would be with us almost all the way home. The thought just about gave me a sick stomach. Joyce suggested to Marguirite that she would be late for supper if she walked with us much farther. That didn’t matter to her, she assured us. Her mother would keep supper warm for her. It was sure different in our house. We better be there when it was time to sit down at the kitchen table or we didn’t eat. She was really getting on my nerves. I decided the best thing to do so that I could endure the walk to the crossroad was to pretend she wasn’t there. I squatted down on my haunches at the edge of the road, peering into the deep dark green water of the ditch. I told Joyce I could see tadpoles, which of course I couldn’t. Joyce squatted too. We squinted into the water pretending to be deeply



t wasn’t only that Marguirite was an only child and spoiled beyond belief, but she had a way about her that riled everyone at Northcote School. Often I couldn’t pin down exactly what it was I didn’t like about the young girl. But there were times it was all too obvious that Marguirite felt about me, exactly as I felt about her. Take the day she decided to walk home from school the long way. She could have just hopped down the road to her house about a kilometre away, had she chosen. But that day she decided she would go around the concession and walk to the Northcote side road with my little friend Joyce and me. We could have easily done without her company. There were things we wanted to talk about – the new boy in senior fourth for instance – that we wouldn’t dare say a word about in front of Marguirite because we might as well write it on the blackboard for the whole school to see. Marguirite couldn’t keep a thing to herself. It was a day I will not soon forget. I can even remember what I had on that day, which had a lot to do with why I remember the details so well. Mother had made me a blouse out of bleached flour bag material. To take away the look that it once held flour, Mother had dyed it a bright green with Ritz dye. That day I had on this freshly dyed blouse over a white skirt which had come in a hand-me-down box from my aunt in St. Catharines. Mother thought it was far too early in the season for a white skirt, but I prevailed on her saying Marguirite had been in white for days. Well, that day, as we headed out after school, Joyce and I tried to ignore Marguirite as we walked along the Northcote side road. The ditches were full of water from the heavy rains we had that spring and occasionally we would stop and kick small stones into the water or coax a frog off the gravel. Marguirite said she had better things to do with her time than talk to frogs and toss stones into a ditch – Joyce suggested she hurry on ahead of us and do whatever that was. My friend and I had

the ditch first. She held her hand down towards me and helped me onto the side of the road. I could see Joyce staring at me. I followed the direction of her eyes. Great streams of green dye were running from the home made blouse, into the white hand-me-down skirt! I was starting to look like a patchwork quilt. I looked down the road to see if I could catch up to Marguirite. She was just a dot on the Northcote side road. There was nothing to do but head for home. By the time I hit the kitchen door, my clothes were dry and the green water mixed with weeds from the ditch and mud from the road, were caked to my legs. Only then did I burst into tears. Mother stripped my clothes and even though it wasn’t yet Saturday night, I was given a bath in the copper tub before supper. All the time I lamented about the girl I hated with a passion, but once again Mother called my ordeal character building. I told Mother, after my ordeal with Marguirite, I thought I had had just about all the character building I could stand in one lifetime. Manotick News EMC - Thursday, April 11, 2013

Manotick race looks to double runners, money

EMC news - Organizers of the Manotick Road Race are hoping more feet will hit the streets to raise $10,000 for the University of Ottawa Heart Institute. Laura Glasper and Danielle Guffie are about 85 per cent of the way to registering their goal of 1,000 runners for the third annual event, which was created to replace the Manotick Fun Run popular in the 1990s and early 2000s. Last year the race involved about 500 runners and raised $4,000 for the heart institute. This year, Glasper said she wants to raise the bar to $10,000 for the April 28 event that will wind through the streets of Manotick. Glasper said registrants so far hail from all across the city and many have been drawn this year by the addition of an 18-kilometre race alongside the usual two, five and 10-km

races. “It’s our biggest race right now; it has the most registrants,” Glasper said. “We chose to do an 18-km (race) because it’s different and people are always looking for different things, and it’s in the training schedule for the Ottawa race weekend.” For those running the half and full marathons on May 25 and 26, Glasper said Manotick’s 18-km race on April 28 fits perfectly into their training schedule. The road race was resurrected several years ago in memory of Al Corace, a long-time volunteer in the village and president of the Manotick Kiwanis club when he died in July 2011. For years, Corace ran the Manotick Fun Run in support of the University of Ottawa Heart Institute, where he had received a quadruple bypass in the mid-1990s and became a regular outpatient. The annual event ended in the mid-2000s when the cost to organize

Having issues with the local wildlife? You are not alone. As urban development encroaches on previously untamed areas, more human-wildlife conflicts result. People are frequently confronted with many wildlife species, including raccoons, groundhogs, squirrels, skunks, and a variety of birds. These animals have largely managed to adapt well to our presence. Humans, on the other hand, are still mastering this living arrangement. It is important for people to understand the need for effective, lasting, and humane solutions to occasional conflicts with wildlife. If you find an injured wild animal that is bleeding, has a broken limb, is walking in circles or falling over when walking, or another obvious injury, please contact Ottawa Humane Society’s Emergency Services at 613-725-1532. For large wildlife, such as deer, moose and bear, please call Ottawa Police Services at 613-236-1222. If a wild animal does not show any signs of injury, then it is best to leave it alone. Wildlife issues are temporary problems and there are solutions. It seems daunting, but if you work out a solution, you can make sure you never have this problem again. Property owners are responsible for dealing with their wildlife situation humanely and legally. There are solutions and tips


Millie is a spayed female, agouti and white Rex mix who loves to frolic, jump and play. She is about 7 months old, and was surrendered to the shelter by her owner on March 14. Millie is looking for a loving home with lots of room to run, great toys to keep her busy and chew toys to help keep her teeth fit and trim. She will need an owner who is ready to accommodate a rabbit that is still growing! She will need a larger cage that she can grow into, and plenty of time to play outside of her cage! For more information about these or other animals available for adoption, please call the Adoption Centre at 613-725-3166 ext. 258 or visit

available at to get the animals to relocate on their own. Please be advised that although you are only seeing one animal, it may not be alone. The birthing season runs from late February to early October, and the babies are helpless when first born and not yet able to leave their nest or den with mom. If you scare the mother away, she may abandon her young. It is critical not to trap young inside, as they will perish, possibly falling between walls and requiring expensive drywall removal and causing very bad odours if they die in inaccessible areas. Many birds fly into windows at this time of year. The sun is low in the sky and causes some unusual reflections. If a bird hits your window, confine the bird in a ventilated box, with a covered hot water bottle in the bottom. The box should be closed, which helps slow down the bird’s metabolism, and placed in a warm area of the house that is isolated from people and pets. Leave the bird alone for one hour. After one hour, they can take the box outside and open it. It may take a few moments for the bird’s eyes to adjust to the light. If it flies away – perfect! The bird was simply stunned. If it does not fly away it needs care. Contact the Wild Bird Care Centre at 613-828-2849. If you have further questions about wild animals, you may contact the Ottawa Humane Society at 613-725-3166 ext. 262, or send an email to

City codifies rules for public-private partnerships Laura Mueller

EMC news - Secrecy shouldn’t be part of the deal when it comes to partnerships between the city and private companies, a community representative told the city’s de facto executive committee last week. The city formalized its policy for public-private partnerships – or P3s, as they are known – during an April 2 meeting of the finance and economic development committee. For the most part, the rules codify what the city has already been doing when it comes to arrangements for companies to build and/or operate municipal facilities such as arenas, said Jeff Byrne, the city’s procure-

ment manager. The policy also adds a requirement to report back to committee and council about the results of the partnership. Bob Brocklebank, a representative of the Federation of Citizens’ Associations and the Glebe Community Association, told the committee that the city needs to be open and provide as much information as possible to convince the public that a partnership is the best idea. “If a P3 is truly better than a traditional approach, let the public see that is the case,” he said. “Being open about it will reduce the strife that has plagued past projects.” Brocklebank said he has no “ideological objections” to P3s, but the community needs to be fully engaged in the process –

both before and after a project is approved and completed – to ensure success. The committee supported an addition from GloucesterSouthgate Coun. Diane Deans to include a line requiring details about proposed P3s to be released to the public for consultation and information as soon as possible in the process. The formalized policy came out of a request from the city auditor general’s office in 2006. The audit required the city to boost accountability, solidify the business case for partnerships and improve how the results are reported to councillors and the public. Clarifying the roles and responsibilities of city staff in that process was also suggested.
