EMC news - Minto has agreed to meet regularly with Manotick groups to ensure everyone is chasing the same goals. Rideau-Goulbourn Coun. Scott Moffatt has organized the bi-monthly meetings, which will bring councillor, community and developer into the same room. He said the purpose of the meetings is to keep the lines of communication open. “The big thing is to make sure everyone is on the same page and learning things at the same time,” Moffatt said. “We want to make sure the communication is good as we move forward with the first phase (of development) and other phases.” Minto is currently building the first phase of a large housing development southwest of the village core, off Manotick Main Street. The first three families will move in at the end of the year, with more coming in early 2014. Along with Moffatt, representatives from Minto, the Manotick Village and Community Association, the BIA and the Manotick Culture, Parks and Recreation Association will meet every second month to discuss concerns, share information and work together on community projects. “It’s just a matter of keeping tabs on the small things that sometimes might also get overlooked,” Moffatt said. Susan Murphy, vice president of development with Minto Communities, said Minto is open to this kind of

co-operation because it keeps the developer in the loop. “Its more to have a vehicle to communicate in terms of activities that are happening with the BIA and the community associations so there’s better communication and cooperation,” Murphy said. For example, Minto is now aware of the upcoming Dickinson Days celebration on the first weekend in June, Murphy said.

I like the idea of working with shared ideas ... rather than afterwards try to stitch things together. KLAUS BELTZNER

Klaus Beltzner, president of the Manotick Village and Community Association, hopes the meetings can go beyond information sharing and lead to real deliverables on projects of “mutual interest” such as better pathway connections, roads, cycling infrastructure and crosswalks. “I like the idea of working with shared ideas and plans rather than have these evolve independently and then afterwards try to stitch things together,” Beltzner said in an email. “It will be an opportunity for the community and Minto work together on enhancing and connecting neighbourhoods and the village.” The first meeting was held in April. The group will meet again in June.

EMC news - The Manotick Farmer’s Market is growing faster than its vendors’ vegetables as it gears up for an expanded season in Dickinson Square. The market opens on Saturday, June 1, three weeks earlier than last year, and will run every Saturday until Thanks-

giving weekend. New vendors are setting up shop, including a bakery and several local meat producers. But it’s all the extras planned for the season that make the market an exciting destination this summer. Market president Paul Mussell, who owns Carmel Farms south of Manotick, said the market has a long list of community activities planned for

the season. “We’re trying to have something happen every weekend,” he said. Whether it’s an event run by Watson’s Mill - such as the Manotick art show in June or market-run activities like a horse-drawn wagon, Mussell said there’s always more than fresh food available. See FARMERS, page 2

Youthful outlook to shape Manotick programming

YOUTH CENTRE

Creating a youth dropin centre like the successful Osgoode Youth Association

has long been a dream in Manotick, but so far a leader has yet to appear. “There’s money available, but it’s the choices made about where we spend the money,� said Jan Hynes during a board meeting of the Manotick Village and Community Association on May 15, where Flynn presented her findings. “It requires a champion.� Fellow board member Janice Domaratzki, who has several teenaged children, said bringing a proper youth centre to Manotick is top of her agenda. “The kids need a place to go that isn’t the skateboard park,� she said. “The kids need a safer place to hang out that isn’t their parents’ basement.� The Osgoode Youth Association was championed by Carol Nixon in 2000, because youth in the community were loitering and vandalizing due to boredom. Several years of advocacy, community support and fundraising eventually resulted in the city handing over the old fire hall on Osgoode Main Street. Today, the city pays for building maintenance including heat and hydro, but O-YA fundraises for operating and programming costs.

EMC news - Teens have a chance to shape their village at an upcoming workshop in Manotick. A rural outreach worker from the Nepean, Rideau and Osgoode Community Resource Centre will host a pizza night on Friday, May 24 where youth can discuss what kind of recreational programming they’d like to see in the village - and the barriers they have to accessing them. “There are tons of issues and all sorts of accessibility issues,� said Courtney Flynn, who is organizing the workshop. “We want to have a clear understanding of what those issues are.� The evening will be held at the Manotick arena between 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. She said pizza, treats and small prizes will be up for grabs. Flynn is part of a Manotick Working Group which includes members from the city’s parks and recreation department, the community police centre and health and resource centres. The group was initiated in response to the ongoing fentanyl abuse problem among Manotick youth. Recently the group con-

ducted a service scan to see what kinds of programs and resources exist for youth in the village. This included everything from Girl Guides and cadets to city services, Flynn said. The scan found there are high costs to participate in current programs, and they are often interest-specific (drama, sports, etc) rather than a general youth drop-in. The report also found that the programs draw on a core group of youth who already have leadership and initiative skills, rather than reaching out to youth at risk. Flynn said feedback from the May 24 workshop as well as a survey targeted to local teens will be compiled into a report and given to the city for consideration. There is no guarantee that the report will yield any results, however. “It’s going to be submitted to Coun. Moffatt and we’ll see what (the parks and recreation department) can provide,� Flynn said. “My role is to start linking people together who are passionate about seeing something happen.�

On July 6 the market will offer free horsedrawn wagon rides around the square. On August 10, an Authors Day will invite local writers to promote their books. Hockey expert Liam Maguire is already confirmed, Mussell said. Mussell said he is still looking for local entertainers to do some busking in the park as well.

Manotick church wants your e-waste Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - A Manotick church is hoping to spark an ewaste exodus this weekend. Manotick United Church will host is second annual ewaste recycling event on May 25 to help the church, community and environment. “We had more than eight tons of electronics last year, so we thought there’s a need for this,� said organizer Catherine McVie, who said Manotick residents don’t have a regular place to dispose of their old electronics. “There are permanent dropoff sites but nothing that’s convenient for Manotick.� The church, located at 5567 Manotick Main Street, is collecting old computers, televisions, cell phones and other

to new Canadians. Last year the church made about $1,200. McVie said the fundraising aspect is a small element of the event. “It’s not a huge fundraiser, but we all have a concern for the environment, anyway,� she said. In 2012, Ontarians helped recycle more than 75,000 SUBMITTED tonnes of electronic waste, a Volunteers sort through old televisions, computers and other electronic waste at last 45 per cent increase from 2011 year’s e-waste recycling day organized by the Manotick United Church. This year’s event and more than any other pro- begins at 8:30 a.m. on May 25. gram in Canada, according to the Ontario Electronic Stewardship website. Since the program began in April 2009, it has diverted more than 185,000 tonnes from Ontario landfills. McVie is looking for student volunteers to help with heavy lifting during the event.

The church receives a small stipend based on the total weight of electronics collected, which McVie said will supplement the church’s outreach programs. Those include the food cupboard, food baskets for families in need and a quilting group that provides a warm welcome

they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know.â&#x20AC;? Leading up the show, auditions will be held at the Osgoode Youth Association on Thursday, May 30 and Thursday, June 20. Each audition is limited to 20 audition spots, which must be pre-registered, and are limited to ďŹ ve minutes each including set-up and tear-down. Semi-ďŹ nalists will be chosen in three talent categories: vocal/instrumental,

dance and other. The â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; category could include performances like stand-up comedy, a magicianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s act or a novelty act, Gallagher said. Performers are also split into three age groups: nine and under, 10 to 15 and 16 and older. Gallagher said the performers donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be from Osgoode. Members of the public are invited to attend the auditions and enjoy an evening of music and entertainment at the youth centre, said O-YAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outreach co-ordinator, Carley Scharf. She said the partnership is a win-win for everyone, because the youth association usually hosts its youth-focused b.side cafe on Thursday evenings. Audience members can enjoy a drink and learn about O-YAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s programs while supporting friends and family at their audition, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really trying to outreach to youth and families who have never heard of O-YA,â&#x20AC;? Scharf said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youth (in other villages) that are younger donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have access to vehicles, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice to let them know that we have a space here that they can use.â&#x20AC;? The auditions begin at 6:30 p.m. at 5479 Osgoode Main Street May 30 and June 20. Performers can register for a spot at www.thegallaghers.ca under the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Osgoodeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Got Talentâ&#x20AC;? tab.

Early morning fire takes barn An early morning fire on Sunday, May 12 at the Wiggins farm at 3352 Donnelly Drive destroyed a barn and damaged a nearby silo. No one was injured in the blaze that was called in around 1 a.m. Firefighters from North Gower and the North Grenville Fire Service responded to the call. Firefighters from Kemptville brought two tankers and one pumper truck to the scene. The owner of the barn was able to get two horses and one bull safely out of the barn as the fire raged, and firefighters sprayed water to protect the farmhouse close to the barn from burning embers that were blowing towards the structure. By 6:30 a.m. firefighters had officially extinguished the fire. They were able to use an excavator to work their way through what was left of the 50 by 17 metre structure looking for hot spots. The barn was 100 years old and damage to the contents has been estimated at $25,000. The barn itself represents a $125,000 loss. The cause of the fire is undetermined and will likely remain that way, according to the Ottawa Fire Service. There is little left of the building for investigators to sift through looking for a cause for the fire.

Time to confront concussions

T

he death of a Barrhaven teen after sustaining a severe head injury during a rugby game last week has highlighted the need for more education about concussions and brain

injuries. Rowan Stringer, 17, a John McCrae Secondary School student and the captain of her school rugby team, was tackled hard and hit her head and neck on the ground during a game on May 14. According to comments from her parents, Rowan had suffered two head injuries the week leading up to her fatal injury. The first time, she told her parents and took a pain reliever, the second time she only told her friends about the injury. We don’t know if these were concussions, but the family has authorized an autopsy to find out the factors leading to her death. Ottawa’s public school board is now taking a hard look at its safety policies to see if they can be improved and make sure players aren’t playing with injuries. But we can’t place the onus on just the coaches – it’s impossible for them to monitor every single hit. All of us – parents, family members, fellow players, properly armed with the knowledge about the dangers of head injuries can help prevent

athletes playing with concussions. The president of the Brain Injury Association of Canada has suggested, during an interview with the media, that Rowan might still be alive today if there was better awareness among coaches, players and the general public about the dangers of repeated concussions. The danger of suffering an injury, ranging from bumps and bruises to broken bones and head injuries, is a fact of life for all athletes. Nothing will change that. But athletes properly educated about the dangers of head injuries, can intelligently decide whether or not they are fit to participate in a game or competition. A big part of the problem is athletes don’t want to report head injuries because they’re afraid they will miss games. Education is a universal cure for poor decision making and a key component for preventing and treating sports-related concussions. Schools and sports associations should provide coaches, players and parents with the training and knowledge to both identify and treat concussions and head injuries. Research shows that if an athlete takes a hit to the head and suffers headaches afterwards, they may have suffered a concussion. An ounce of prevention is worth a ton of cure.

Public and private adjustment to playoff hockey mode

T

his time of year the news media, searching for ways to make hockey playoffs meaningful to the nonhockey population, focus on the fans, big crowds of them in matching colours, shaking towels in matching colours, yelling, dancing, or – as in Toronto – looking suddenly suicidal. The cameras prowl around the city looking for hockey fans being interesting – which is to say, noisy and excited. Naturally, the cameras find the public areas where noisy and excited people gather. In Ottawa, that would be the so-called Red Mile downtown. People with painted faces and colourful costumes are there. Along the Red Mile, and its equivalent in other cities, the cameras enter the bars, where people are all too happy to wave and shout and chant and look like newsworthy fans. But there are other, less newsworthy fans in our city. Perhaps they are the majority. Fortunately for them, the cameras do not seek them out. For these fans their fanaticism is private. They stay out of the public places. Their faces remain unpainted and they wear their normal clothes. Yet in their own way, they are making the adjustment to playoff mode.

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town This requires changes in their behaviour patterns. Dinner, instead of being at the usual time, now must be earlier, to be over in time for the game. Or it must become a different kind of dinner, in order to be eaten off the lap in front of the TV set. Or it must be so late as to be verging on fashionable. Social life becomes more complicated. A dinner party scheduled weeks ago suddenly is found to coincide with the game. It can’t be shifted: that would be rude. So calculations have to be made. Are the guests fans? Would they mind eating at 5:30, before the game? Would they mind eating at 10 p.m., after the game? Can they persuaded to eat Chinese food off their laps, in front of the TV, with chopsticks? And if the guests are not hockey fans? Published weekly by:

There are people in the world who think about other things and are oblivious to what happens on the ice. They want to talk about Syria. How many times can you sneak away from the conversation during dinner to check the score? And what will be your excuse – stirring the dessert, making the coffee, a sudden nosebleed, another sudden nosebleed? And how to explain to your guests the sudden elation/depression you feel around 10 p.m? Depression could be Syria, I suppose. Another trial facing the private fan has to do with his/her children/grandchildren. They can scarcely be shielded from the fanaticism that is all around them. But they can’t be allowed to stay up until 10 on a school night either. As a consequence, a small but significant proportion of the fan base only sees the first period. But even that one period has its own challenges. The commercials have to be muted – which leads to the spectacle of silent video game monsters and Justin Trudeau in his undershirt. Further, a quick escape strategy has to be plotted to divert impressionable young eyes away from the fights. “Quick: Weather Network!” goes the cry whenever the gloves are dropped. In some games, the children see more low

pressure systems than slapshots. They must wonder why people paint their faces for this. Even among private fans, the pressure builds, the anguish and the ecstasy, the groans and cheers, and the tough part, at the end of it, is to explain to the children and grandchildren of private fans that it’s only a game, that you shouldn’t be mad at your team, you shouldn’t hate the other team and life goes on, win or lose. While you’re doing that, the screen fills with all the grieving painted faces in one city and all the hysterically happy painted faces in the other. Quick: Weather Network!

Early prevention key message at Kidney Foundation AGM Emma Jackson

Despite the new format, the foundation still found time to celebrate its volunteers and suc-

cess stories from the past year. Manotick resident David Presley received an excellence award for his door-knocking campaign during the foundationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual March Drive. Presleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife Lyn accepted the award of his behalf, as David is currently recovering from his kidney transplant at the end of April. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unfortunately he canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be here, but fortunately he canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be here,â&#x20AC;? Lyn quipped as she thanked everyone for their support as David recovers. The Presleys waited ďŹ ve years for a kidney transplant. The news of an available kidney came on April 29 after a weekend at the Alive to Strive fundraising run in support of the foundation. He went into surgery about 12 hours later, and by early Tuesday morning was in recovery. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has been a long ďŹ ve years leading up to this,â&#x20AC;? Lyn wrote in an email to her supporters that day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our thoughts and extreme gratitude is very much with the donor family who, in

their time of grief made the decision to give life to others.â&#x20AC;? Stittsville teacher Marianne Graham was recognized for her â&#x20AC;&#x153;infectious enthusiasmâ&#x20AC;? as she and her family raised $12,000 for the foundation at a community event last year. Frank Fenn and Lucie Duguay from the Carlingwood Mall received the Rabbi Reuven P. Bulka award for an event they held at the west-end mall in February, where they signed up 300 new people to be organ donors. A former staff member had needed a kidney transplant, and Fenn and Duguay decided to support him with their fundraiser. Along with signing up 300 new donors, they also raised about $5,000 for the foundation. Linda and Marcel Moncion, who own the Your Independent Grocer in Riverside South, were also recognized for outstanding support of the foundation.

EMC news - Teach kids how to lead a healthy lifestyle and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll prevent a lot of kidney disease. This was the message from Ottawa Hospital kidney expert Dr. Shiv Jindal at the Kidney Foundationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual general meeting on May 14. The Eastern Ontario chapter met at Southminster United Church in Old Ottawa South to celebrate a year of success, and for the ďŹ rst time invited several speakers to address current issues in the ďŹ eld. Jindal spoke passionately about the need for prevention at a very young age, before any risk factors for kidney disease have even set in. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We should not be talking about organ failure, because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too late,â&#x20AC;? he told the audience of about 40 people. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We should be talking about vascular health, which is the common link.â&#x20AC;? Jindal said genes and factors like gender and ethnicity play a minor role in kidney disease. While the genes are there, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our lifestyle choices that cause them to develop kidney disease, he said. Avoiding unhealthy habits from the outset is crucial, Jindal said, and parents and educators must play a key role in making sure children are eating well, getting enough exercise and learning how to lead a healthy lifestyle in the future. When bad habits are allowed to continue, blood vessels are damaged and we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even know it, Jindal explained. The damage occurs across the entire body. There are no tests to prove it, and as the damage gets worse it then starts to effect organs. By the time the organs are damaged, there is little we can do to reverse the problem, Jindal said. And the problem is getting worse. Kidney disease has tripled in recent years, Jindal said, and in Ottawa there are 200 new patients each year. About 1,000 Ottawa residents are on some sort of dialysis, and another 550 attend the hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s progressive renal insufďŹ ciency (PRI) clinic. Between 150 and 175 residents are waiting for a new kidney. Jindal said he would like to see a small pilot project in Ottawa that teaches families and educators what a healthy lifestyle actually looks like, and how to promote that with children. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Despite all our marketing, all our publicity, nothing is working,â&#x20AC;? Jindal said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Maybe we have to take a different approach.â&#x20AC;?

Johnson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When May 14th comes around I think about it but we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mark it.â&#x20AC;? Moira became ill in March, and Dossetor knew she was experiencing renal failure. At the time, transplants could only be done between identical twins - and it was only by chance that the girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; mother mentioned Moira did indeed have a twin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had to test to prove we were identical,â&#x20AC;? remembered Johnson, who volunteered her kidney as soon as she knew a transplant was a possibility. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was just a week before they determined there could be an operation.â&#x20AC;? But it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that simple. Because the girls were minors, they had to face a family court judge to determine if they were able to consent to donate and receive kidneys.

Greely school marks 40 years Cows have given way to houses, but spirit has stayed the same Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - Greely Elementary School has come a long way from the two-room schoolhouse of the 1960s. On Friday, May 24, staff, students and school alumni will celebrate the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 40-year legacy in the village with songs, speeches and a special art installation. The current school building was constructed as an open concept school in 1972, and it was officially dedicated in 1973. Walls were added later, as were additional wings and renovations to improve the building.

Before the school was built, students in grades three to six attended class in a traditional two-room schoolhouse, with two portables in the yard. The school was surrounded by fields and, often, cows. During construction, staff and students were relocated to the school at Herberts Corners. Principal Helen Jarvis, who has lead the school for the past four years, said a lot has changed in Greely since the 1970s. Houses have sprung up around the three-acre school yard, and the cows have eventually been pushed further south as development takes over the area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At a certain stage they were happy to say there were no more cows in the school yard. Isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that the best?â&#x20AC;? laughed Jarvis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It cost $425,000 to build the whole school, and think about the (value of the) houses around there now,â&#x20AC;? she added. The anniversary celebration begins at 12:30 p.m. at the school on Parkway Road. Dignitaries including Osgoode

Greely Elementary School â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;s student body is gearing up to celebrate the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 40th anniversary on Friday, May 24. Coun. Doug Thompson, retired Greely teacher Judie Matthewson and school trustee Mark Fisher will all speak to the occasion. Jarvis said the celebration was the brainchild of the school council. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Greely has a small but very committed school council which plans successful fund-raising events such as the Holiday Fling every November, which provide technology such as interactive white boards, library books and sporting equipment,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was our parents that noticed we were at our 40th anniversary and

thought it was an event that needed to be celebrated.â&#x20AC;? The schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 225 students will carry the celebration with songs and performances, Jarvis said. The choir will offer several numbers, and the kindergarten class will perform a song from the 1970s. But even students not scheduled to sing on May 24 will leave their mark on the celebration. As part of a painting commissioned for the anniversary, local artist Jill Peters allowed every student in the school to provide a â&#x20AC;&#x153;finger dotâ&#x20AC;? to her painting, which will be

unveiled at the event. Jarvis said thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just one of many special projects the school has undertaken this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a new logo, we have new school colours, we have a new banner,â&#x20AC;? she said. But none of these updates have altered the amount of spirit in the school. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still small, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still in the heart of Greely and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still a really special school,â&#x20AC;? Jarvis said. For more information or to RSVP to the school event, call 613-8212291.

Olympian brings elite experience to Ottawa Race Weekend Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

John Halvorsen, race director for Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend, shows the race routes on a map.

FULL-TIME STAFF

EMC sports - Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend race director John Halvorsen knows everyone can’t be a world-class runner, but the two-time Olympian still wants thousands of runners to have an elite experience during the May 25 and 26 extravaganza. And that’s a big deal, in more ways than one. After all, an Ottawa Race Weekend record 42,573 runners participated in 2012, making it Canada’s largest multi-distance race event. Injury and Achilles tendon surgery prevented Halvorsen’s qualification for a third Olympic Games in 1996, but he was an icon on the North American running scene in the 1980s and 1990s, after coming to Ottawa from his native Norway as a young teenager when his dad took a job at the Norwegian embassy. His parents have long since returned to Norway, but Halvorsen remains in the National Capital area despite retaining his Norwegian citizenship. When he first arrived here, teachers at Sir Robert Borden High School allowed him to use a dictionary to find certain words, but his learning curve was quick and Canada soon became his new and comfortable home. He went on to earn his engineering degree and MBA at the University of Ottawa, and to win two Canadian club and five Canadian interuniversity cross-country championships, in ad-

dition to racing in the 1988 and 1992 Olympic Games. His best Olympic placing was 16th in the 10,000 metres in Seoul, while four years later he ran faster to place 19th in the same event in Barcelona, Spain. The 5-foot-8, 130-pound runner was also named Runner’s World male road racer of the year in 1989. Now about 170 pounds, the 46-year-old married father of three youngsters, ages 14, 12 and 10, remains physically active and connected to the sports community in the National Capital area. Living just across the Ottawa River in Kingsmere, Que., he coaches at the local Nakkertok cross-country ski club, skis, cycles and continues to run. “I had a good run at running for years, and it was a great experience,” says Halvorsen, though convinced he could have run faster. For 10,000 metres on the track, he ran a world-class time of 27 minutes 43 seconds. “I know I could have better times, because my best times were not when I was in top shape,” says Halvorsen. After working 18 years in Ottawa’s high-tech industry, primarily in marketing and product management, he became Tamarack Ottawa Race weekend’s new full-time race director in late January.

merous other volunteers. The other full-time staff are communications director Susan Marsh, operations manager Joe DuVall, event manager Al Macartney and assistant operations manager Ryan Cameron. One of the part-time staffers is long-time race director Jim Robinson, who spearheaded the evolution of Ottawa Race Weekend into one of the most-talked-about running weekends in North America. “Honorary everything,” says Halvorsen of the retired Robinson, who now works as a part-time advisor for Ottawa Race Weekend. Halvorsen became involved with the organization in 1999 and went on to hold positions that include parttime race director and chairman of the Run Ottawa board of directors.

No longer just about a marathon, as the event was when it began in the early 1970s, Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend is home to the marathon, half-marathon, 10K, 5K, 2K and kids 1K. The marathon will feature a record of more than 6,200 runners this year, but the 10K and half-marathon will each attract the biggest fields, of more than 11,000. Sponsorship plus entry fees create an annual Ottawa Race Weekend budget of $2.8 million, including $400,000 for the elite racers. “Our primary focus, from a time and budget perspective, is organizing the Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend because that’s the main event that draws the substantial portion of our revenues … but we also have other events,” says Halvorsen.

The budget also accommodates organization of several Run Ottawa races during the year, including informal Beaver Chase trail runs, the Army Run which may attract more than 20,000 runners this September, the Jim Howe memorial, January’s Richmond road race, and Kanata’s Canada Day road races with 10K-, 5K-, 1.2K- and 100 metre-races. As race director, Halvorsen says he’s called on for leadership, accounting and general management. For this month’s race weekend, Halvorsen sees his role as providing more leadership and vision: “Obviously, we’ve been around for a long time, so we’re not talking about reinventing the wheel, but it’s messaging. Sponsorship is another huge role.” See RACE, page 13

OTTAWA RACE WEEKEND

Connected to your community

BLAIR EDWARDS/METROLAND

The Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend will attract more than 40,000 runners, people of all ages and skill level, to its May 24 and 25 event.

Race weekend will generate $27 million in Ottawa region EMC sports - He also remains involved with organizational details, like working with its supplier on course signs and structures. “We’re talking six-figure costs here, just for structures and signage,” says Halvorsen. Logistics, including those involving security, are also part of the pie. SECURITY

Security remains an important part of running the race weekend, a concern punctuated by last month’s bomb blasts at the Boston Marathon. “Our event now is public enough that we have to expect it’s possible, whether it’s an emergency of this nature (with bombs) or an emergency of lesser nature that still needs some thought process to deal with it,” says Halvorsen. For the first time, Ottawa Race Weekend officials and public responders will take part in a table-top emergency exercise, so people know how to respond if there’s an extreme emergency. “We’re probably unique in the sense that we have an on-site medical team that can address a ton of medical issues,” says Halvorsen. That weekend team consists of 40 doctors and 150 nurses from the Ottawa Hospital. The event also features ski patrol members on bikes and roving patrols, who pick up runners in trouble and work in collaboration with Ottawa and Gatineau paramedics, firefighters and police. There will also be signs reminding Ottawa Race Weekend participants not to leave bags unattended. There may also be additional security at baggage checks. Meanwhile, The Tamarack Race Weekend staff continue to look for

efficiencies in its operations. “We try to reuse, but we also try to improve. In the perfect world, we would do things different, but we don’t live in a perfect world,” says Halvorsen. “We can’t close any road we want because of traffic impact. Our approach is that we see where we’d like to be. We’ve seen what the main races are like, either with Jim (Robinson) travelling to them or my running experience, so we ask how we can get there. “An example is the marathon, which was a two-loop course for years. Both Jim and I knew no world-class marathon has a twoloop course, it just doesn’t happen, unless you’re talking the Olympics, and then it doesn’t matter because you’re only talking 60 runners. “Second of all, we have a city with a lot of tourist attractions. We are still the capital of Canada. We have a lot of national and regional monuments, whether it’s a war museum, the art gallery or Parliament Hill. So we said to ourselves, how can we make a course that incorpo-

rates as much of that as possible, still living in the context of traffic difficulties, construction, and all that kind of stuff.” BIG ECONOMIC IMPACT

Meanwhile, Halvorsen and the race weekend team continue to strive to make the course attractive to out-of-town runners, which make up about 40 per cent of entrants. Ottawa Race Weekend also generates an economic impact of $27 million in the region. That impact is similar to what the region has experienced for such prominent events as the Juno Awards and the National Hockey League All-Star Game. “Having reached that point now, and having city and NCC (National Capital Commission) officials understand that, has been helpful for obvious reasons.

The support we get now (from the city) is quite good,” says Halvorsen. “There are still some challenges once in a while, but that’s nothing unusual. “Our biggest beef (is the lack of) government grants,” adds Halvorsen. “We’re either classified as a charity, which we are not, or as a sporting event, which apparently doesn’t “get any funding, unlike other festivals that are arts-related that get funding. We’ve almost yet to receive anything.” Meanwhile, Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend can boast about being home to the largest running expo event in Canada, with more than 100 vendors for the Thursday-throughSaturday event. On the pavement, the race schedule Saturday has the 2k at 4 p.m., 5K at 5 p.m., and 10K at around 6:30 p.m. Sunday is home to the marathon

11 Critical Home Inspection Traps to be Aware of Weeks Before Listing Your Home for Sale Ottawa & Area - According to industry experts, there are over 33 physical problems that will come under scrutiny during a home inspection when your home is for sale. A new report has been prepared which identifies the eleven most common of these problems, and what you should know about them before you list your home for sale. Whether you own an old home or a brand new one, there are a number of things that can fall short of requirements during a home inspection. If not identified and dealt with, any of these 11 items could cost you dearly in terms of repair. That's why it's critical that you read this report before you list your home. If you wait until the building inspector flags these issues for you, you will almost certainly experience costly delays in the close of your home sale or, worse, turn prospective buyers away

(the only Ottawa Race Weekend event with more male entrants), kids marathon (in which participants run their marathon’s last kilometre after doing the equivalent of 41 kilometres of exercise) and half-marathon. Those start times are 7, 8 and 9 a.m. respectively. Halvorsen loves to watch the competitive elite races, but he says many non-elites also play a special role in race weekend. For example, the race director says it’s emotional seeing average runners so excited while finishing their first marathon or half-marathon, with friends and other spectators on hand. “The emotion at the finish line can be huge,” says Halvorsen. “It’s rewarding to know you played a role in that, and they’re excited and happy to do the event that you created.”

In most cases, you can make a reasonable pre-inspection yourself if you know what you're looking for, and knowing what you're looking for can help you prevent little problems from growing into costly and unmanageable ones.

fun week of summer camp in August. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Typically, (children) are referred to us through word of mouth or through CHEO,â&#x20AC;? Mooney says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t turn anyone away.â&#x20AC;? Last year, there were 33 children who took part in the camp that runs the first week in August. Mooney and his wife Pam started the eastern Ontario Camp Quality. They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t own the campsite at Providence Point near Lanark, but only rent it for the week to provide this service, typically to children who have ended their cancer treatments. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were askedâ&#x20AC;Ś we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say no,â&#x20AC;? he said. They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have children of their own, but 18 nieces and nephewsâ&#x20AC;Ś and a Newfounland dog named Bear. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Camp Quality is a good time for kids to come and have some fun and it also gives their parents some respite,â&#x20AC;? Mooney said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If a child is a first-time camper, we usually invite their siblings to attend as well.â&#x20AC;? Mooney says that there are a number of volunteers who accommodate a single camper. There are two for each child, plus support staff of doctors and nurses on site. Some of the friendships forged between the child and his or her camp counsellors (who are all adults usually in their 20s or 30s) have lasted for years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have some matches who have been together for three and four years,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kind of like Big Brothers and Big Sisters.â&#x20AC;?

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been for almost a half-century that the Antique and Classic Car Club of Canada (ACCCC), Rideau Lakes Region, has been shining up its rigs for the spring car show in Lombardy. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event is slated for May 25 and 26. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been having this car show since about 1965,â&#x20AC;? said Andy Holdham of Manotick, president of the ACCCC, who has a 1936 Chevy classic of his own. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And every year since Camp Quality has been in existence, we have donated between $1,000 and $1,500 to help children who are undergoing cancer treatments.â&#x20AC;? Members of the club live in Smiths Falls, Carleton Place, Almonte, Perth, Kemptville, Manotick, Winchester, Metcalfe, Russell, Greely, Kanata, Barrhaven and Orleans, but Holdham said most of the members are from the Smiths Falls area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re from all overâ&#x20AC;Ś and we attract a great deal of people,â&#x20AC;? he added, including from Ontario, Quebec and northern United States. This two-day event will feature flea market type vendors of crafts and automotive specialists in and surrounding the agricultural building, complete with â&#x20AC;&#x2122;50s and â&#x20AC;&#x2122;60s music and an evening beef barbecue for anyone who would like to grab bite to eat.

There will also be a car corral for those who wish to sell their old classics. A $10 fee will apply for those wishing to take advantage of this opportunity.

Glenn Mooney and his wife Pam started the eastern Ontario Camp Quality ... to provide this service, typically to children who have ended their cancer treatments.

Sunday is the main event, with a car show slated from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with free registration from 8 a.m. to noon. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; complete with 15 different categories of judging. From modified vehicles, to original classics, pro stock and restored antiques, there will be judging by fellow owners with awards presentations at the end of the afternoon, approximately 3 p.m. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These old cars are neat to look at, but even neater to watch and hear one drive by,â&#x20AC;? Holdham said, as the car show will feature a drive-by of sorts as the old buggies are cranked over for a parade around the racetrack. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We normally parade about 1820 vehicles and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m hoping to get up into the 1950 models,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s neat to hear the chugging of the old 1916 Model T owned by a member, Terry Irish, or a 1923 Buick with a different sound all together and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll extend that (parade) up to the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;50s and â&#x20AC;&#x2122;60s models.â&#x20AC;? Holdham said this event is about the camaraderie, networking and having fun with other like-minded car folks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about seeing cars and talking to people with the same interest, and maybe seeing restoration of a car like one youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re working onâ&#x20AC;Ś itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about getting advice and finding parts, or just about having fun and enjoying the old cars,â&#x20AC;? he said. One of the highlights for the ACCCC is having fun with the kids at Camp Quality. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We always go camp and take the kids for rides in the old cars,â&#x20AC;? said Holdham. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Their faces just light up when they take a ride in some of those cars,â&#x20AC;? added Mooney. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They hop on into the rumble seat and away they go. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Antique and Classic Car Club have been a great support to us for the past 13 years, both financially and with their involvement at camp.â&#x20AC;? Camp Quality will be on site during Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s car show for anyone interested in more For information on the car show, call 613-692-2438.

Ottawa library wants you to imagine its future Board chairwoman wants to re-open debate about closing branches Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - The Ottawa Public Library wants people to peek into a crystal ball and imagine what the library should look like in the future. Notably, the library wants to know what it should stop doing – not just new things it

should take on. The central questions posed in the online survey – the first phase of the public engagement process – ask what the library should continue doing, what should it start doing and what should it stop doing in the next five years. “We know that we are changing,” said Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder, chairwoman of the Ottawa Public Library board. “We are not currently delivering library services in the best way,” she said. The campaign is online at imagine-opl-bpo.ca now and will be open for public comment until June 15. Those who

participate will be eligible to win an iPad. People can post ideas and vote on other people’s ideas. A day after the campaign launched the top idea, speeddating for volunteer opportunities, had already received almost 250 “likes.” While discussing the possibility of closing library branches is politically unpopular, it might be time to re-open that debate, Harder said. “Do we continue to support and sustain our 33 branches and our Bookmobile?” Harder said. “Or do we look at other opportunities that people may suggest and they may say will serve them just as well.

“Is that the best use of the taxpayers’ money?” she added. Adding user-pay programs to the library’s repertoire should also be considered, Harder said. “I am not afraid to start charging for some stuff,” she said. “Right now it’s a free ride at the library and I don’t think that it needs to be. “I’m not looking to make money, but I don’t think we should be hindered from being relevant by not wanting to charge someone $25 for having something unique that people want,” Harder said. Harder said she’d like to see the libraries have more flexible space. She suggested putting

the shelves on wheels so they could be moved around and the space repurposed to offer more programs. “So the space that you’re using isn’t necessarily a large amount, but it is vibrant, vital and mobile,” Harder said. Reducing the size of reference sections and instead focusing on helping people find the information in new ways should also be a priority, Harder said. “We’ve got a big job ahead of us. We do want to make sure we’re staying relevant,” she said. Library chief executive officer Danielle MacDonald said she wanted to undertake the

consultation “primarily because it makes good sense to connect with our customers.” But the library also wants to hear from people who don’t use the library about why, and what might make them begin accessing library services in person or online. “We know there are new opportunities but we also know there are choices,” MacDonald said. The consultation will set the direction for an update to the library’s strategic plan that should take form early next year. It will be the first time the library has done a major overhaul of its master plan since the city amalgamated.

Reforming the Temporary Foreign Worker Program Recently, Canadians have raised concerns about the Temporary Foreign Worker Program being used by some employers to replace Canadians with foreign workers. Our governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s priority is to ensure that Canadians get ďŹ rst crack at available jobs in their area. This is why we have launched a review of the Program, and have moved quickly to identify and correct the problems that were preventing qualiďŹ ed Canadian workers from getting jobs. We will ensure Canadians are always given ďŹ rst chance at available jobs. We are mandating that companies produce a solid business plan to transition from the use of foreign workers to Canadians, including training Canadians if necessary. This will ensure that temporary foreign workers do not become permanent employees or a long-term solutions solution when many Canadians cannot ďŹ nd employment. We are also ensuring that we hold companies accountable, by increasing our authority to revoke work permits for those companies that do not play by the rules. This will prevent further fraud and ensure that the introduction of foreign workers into the workplace does not have an overall negative impact on the labour market. We are asking additional questions as part of the application process, so that when employers bring in temporary foreign workers, no Canadian workers are displaced as a result of outsourcing. We will require that employers using the Temporary Foreign Worker Program pay the workers at the prevailing wage for that job. Our government is also proposing the introduction of fees for companies who wish to employ foreign workers, so that taxpayers are no longer subsidizing the application process. These changes will strengthen and improve the Temporary Foreign Worker Program and support our economic recovery and growth. Our government will continue to review the program, and you can expect more changes in the coming months. Pierre Poilievre MP Nepean-Carleton

Aunt Lizzieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strange gifts never served much use

F

atherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sister Aunt Lizzie, very wealthy we thought, lived in Regina and once a year she came out to the homestead in Renfrew County, just to check up on her only brother, and as Mother said, to make sure the farm hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t slipped into the Bonnechere River. Aunt Lizzie didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think Mother was good farm material. She thought anyone who had lived most of her life in New York City, certainly wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t amount a hill of beans in the backwoods of Renfrew County! Every time she came to visit, the house was in turmoil. Everything had to be scrubbed within an inch of its life, and my sister Audrey and I had to give up our bed and the little washstand we shared at the top of the stairs. Even the top had to be cleared off, so my collection of little stones I cherished... small little stones I picked up on the farm and which I loved dearly, had to be put in a little paper bag and tucked away for keeping in a safe

place. Audreyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hand mirror and comb, too, had to find a new home for Aunt Lizzieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s visit. Even though she was his sister, Father was always in a lather when Aunt Lizzie came for her yearly visit. She insisted on bringing him something which served no earthly purpose, and which she thought he shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t live without. And often the hand-medown box, usually included a present for Father which made little or no sense whatsoever. Like the kimono. Father had never laid eyes on a kimono before, but he insisted on wearing it when we had neighbours in for euchre one Saturday night. Even Mother couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t talk him out of putting it on, but when Uncle Alec after dealing out the cards, asked Father what in tarnation he had on over his shirt and trousers, Father decided the kimono just wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t for him. When Aunt Lizzie visited us in Renfrew County, she never failed to bring Father some outlandish gift, which

MARY COOK Mary Cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Memories she insisted was just what he needed. One summer it was a dress shirt with a high round celluloid collar, which Father had to wear to church the Sunday she was there. It took both Mother and Aunt Lizzie to button it around his neck, and when he got home he said his head ached and his ears were ringing. He never wore the shirt again. I thought the small stiff straw hat with the narrow brim, and the narrow black ribbon looked much better than the big old tattered one Father wore around the farm. Aunt Lizzie bought it at Walkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Store in Renfrew and she never let Father forget that she had paid a whole .75 cents for it! That didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make him like

it any better, especially when he saw the identical hat on a woman in the Lutheran Church one Sunday! Well, one summer, Aunt Lizzie arrived, and as usual, the house was in a turmoil. She re-arranged the furniture without even an if-you-please to Mother, all of which was promptly moved back where it belonged the minute the train left Renfrew station. That year, Aunt Lizzie told Father that she wanted to go into Renfrew to do some shopping for him, as what she had in mind was too bulky to pack in her cow-hide suitcases. Father wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t too pleased, but Mother told him to get it over with...there would be no living with his sister until she had her way. And off they went in the

Model T on the Saturday. I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait to see what Aunt Lizzie had in mind for Father. When they got home, Father was like a thunder cloud, changed into his bib overalls and headed for the barn. Aunt Lizzie came in with a shoe box under her arm. She opened it on the kitchen table, and there was a pair of menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shoes the like of which I had never seen before. They were black shiny patent leather, with white leather insets under the laces, and the toes were so pointed, Emerson said you could kick the eyes out of a snake at 50 paces! Aunt Lizzie insisted Father wear them to church the next day, which he did with great reluctance, but the minute he got home, they were exchanged for his black well-worn work boots. Aunt Lizzie said he should wear them all day to break them in. Father sat and looked at the shoes for the longest time, and I could tell he was thinking long and hard.

He put the new shoes back on and headed for the barn to do the Sunday night chores. When he came in for supper, you wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t recognize the new black and white leather shoes. They were covered with manure, grass and mud, and you couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell where the white insets started and the black toes began. Even Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s socks were ready for the Monday washing! I knew without question, Father who was meticulous about both himself and the barns, had deliberately ruined the shoes. Aunt Lizzie flew into a fit, grabbed the shoes and went out to the rain barrel with a whisk and a rag. She agreed then they should only be worn to church on Sunday. Her train left before the week was out, and she wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t around to see if Father was in his new shoes at the Lutheran Church. Like the kimono, the shirt with the celluloid collar, and the straw hat, the shoes vanished, never to be seen again on the farm at Northcote.

“Milos, I am going to Break you” A mini-revolution is brewing in North America. The approach is called “Progressive Tennis.” It is imported from European countries such as France and Belgium where it was used to successfully develop players like Justine Henin-Hardenne and Olivier Rochus. Progressive Tennis uses a systematic progression of court sizes, balls, and racquets, to scale the game down to an appropriate level for 5-10 year olds. Modified racquets and balls are not new. The equipment has been around for a while, as has the “graduated length” concept. Coaches have used bits and pieces for years seeing the advantage from the perspective of success, fun and safety. The difference this time is that all these elements have been brought together in a much more systematic way than ever before. Tennis companies now carry the full line of half-court and ¾-court progressive equipment including graduated, balls, racquets, lay down lines and nets. The power of the progressive tennis system is that it allows players to play quickly and successfully. In Progressive Tennis, the philosophy is that tennis is a great and fun game to play and the quicker and more skillfully a player can play the more fun it is. Each stage not only has specific equipment to aid success, but particular skills to develop as well. It is recommended a Game-Based Approach be used. The coach’s job is to get them to play, and help them learn to play better. Simply put, “Progressive Tennis” is used as a developmental tool to allow young children to improve their overall tennis skills faster so they can transition to the regular court with more ease. The OTA, NCTA, City of Ottawa and all of our clubs are committed to helping you and your children play this great game. Sean Sweeney OTA Regional Chair said that: “All of us are committed to helping introduce over 25 000 new kids to the game of tennis by Dec 2013”. So, call or drop by one of our great clubs below and get started today. You too can crush Milos and his 242KM serve. Well maybe not but you can have a great time trying.

Slower Balls, Smaller Courts, Right sized Racquets” Get started today.

Marathon drummers to strike a beat at race weekend michelle.nash@metroland

The group used to play before football games at Lansdowne Park and said they loved performing in front large crowds, but say their most enjoyable audience members are children. “They just surround us when we play,” Vienneau said. Even though there are nine members in the group, the men say they are always looking for more experienced drummers to join. “We are not getting any younger,” St-Jean said. The troop will be performing by the War Museum from 7 to 11 a.m. on May 24. For more information about the group, please visit www. heritagehandsottawa.ca.

EMC news - While some onlookers might only see marathon racers stretching their limbs before the big race, there will be a group of nine men also stretching in preparation for a different kind of marathon. During the Ottawa Race Weekend marathon, the Heritage Hands Ottawa Drum Club will be performing for a total of four hours on May 24 to encourage the more than 10,000 racers across the finish line. “We will be drumming until every last runner or straggler has crossed the line,” said Michel Monette, co-founder of the club. “We won’t leave until everyone else is gone.” Monette and longtime friend Charles St-Jean have been drumming most of their lives, starting together in the De La Salle Cadets when the two were only 15 years-old and lived next to each other in Lowertown. In 1998, St-Jean brought some of the old drummers together for a reunion and since that meeting the group has been playing at shows and for fun in the Ottawa area. “It’s passion and friendship that keep us together,” St-Jean said. The group average age is 60, which the men joke is why

they will be stretching too before the marathon. “It’s physically demanding,” said Armand Vienneau, a drummer in the group. “It can take a lot out of you.” The group performs both old historic military rhythms and new songs they composed together. The only drumming club of its kind in Ottawa, members from all across the city come to play with the group. Passionate about drumming, the club members say they perform more for the enjoyment than for money these days, taking gigs where they can get them. “It’s the rush,” Monette said.

Go!

Get back from the gym, pack your kids lunch, then think about yours… Your day is full and one way to make it simpler and healthier is to pack your whole days food to go! Think fruits, veggies, nuts and a layered salad to go! By taking whatever is in your refrigerator and creating an assembly line production, you can make a number of salads at a time and they will stay fresh for the whole week. Let your imagination go wild, grains, beans, sprouts, greens, nuts, seeds, fruit, veggies, dressings, so many possible combinations. Not only do the beans, nuts and seeds add protein, but so do sprouts. In fact, they can contain up to 35% protein. By adding sprouts to your diet you will get the necessary protein intake required by your body minus the fat, cholesterol, and calories that typically come with animal meats. Just grab and go and you are on your way out the door. Then when lunchtime hits you will be able to enjoy this feast for the eyes. Just shake and enjoy!

Anti-bullying message to focus on positive change Ridgemont, Rideau schools want to start a chain reaction Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - Fourteen years ago, a girl named Rachel Scott was sitting on the grass out front of her school when two boys approached her and shot her five times.

family to tell how important their daughter was. It was these stories, Scott’s writings, poems and drawings and the images from that horrific day at Columbine High that make up the presentation of Rachel’s Challenge. Although the students who Krings presents to these days may have been very young or not even alive when the killings at Columbine took place, Krings said each student still manages to relate to the story. “For most students Columbine is a big shock, they were babies when it happened,” Krings said. “But it’s a story about a real person and that is what I think resonates with them.” Lamble said her students will be taking what they learned in the workshops and applying it to school events, assemblies and other alreadyorganized school clubs. “I’m looking forward to seeing what the students do with what they learned,” Lamble said. Makris said she has already been encouraged by her students, who are already talking about holding a ‘cupcakes for kindness’ bake sale and other little events to promote kindness in the school.

The challenges are simple at heart and Krings explained this is why Scott believed creating positive change in the world was possible. According to Makris and Rideau’s school guidance counselor, Wendy Lamble, the students reacted well to the challenges. “Students you wouldn’t think would even care were emotional and wiping away tears throughout the assembly,” Makris said. Between the two schools 200 students participated in the program and workshops. Krings said she couldn’t believe how enthusiastic and how much the students at the school embraced the challenges. “I have rarely felt so welcome, but this community has been amazing, the students have been amazing and I have had a great time working with the kids,” she said. Krings said Scott’s message can reach out to all ages and the important thing to remember is anyone can change the world or make a positive impact on someone else’s life.

Ottawa skater tops in province Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@metroland.com

EMC sports - A Morgan’s Grant teen has won the provincial championship title for figure skating. Joni Benedeczky, 16, won first place at the 2013 Skate Ontario STARSkate competition, which was held in Fort Erie, Ont., this past March. The West Carleton Secondary School student was up against four other competitors in the finals in the senior bronze men category. “I won first place, and I am really happy to hold the provincial champion title in my category,” said Joni in an email. “There are many things to consider in a solo. It’s not just about the jumps and the spins. It’s about putting them together gracefully; putting your heart into it and making it look easy and enjoyable to watch. “I was very happy with my results since I performed a clean program.” The Grade 10 student has been a member of the March Kanata Skating Club for eight years, two of those as a CanSkater and six at the StarSkater level. “In the year that I was finishing the CanSkate program, I had the opportunity to see the older and more experienced skaters perform during our ice show,” he said. “I loved it so much that I decided to continue on to the StarSkate program where with hard training, you can set higher standards for yourself.” And Joni is a hard worker. In just under five months of practicing double jumps, he could land them all. “It took lots of hard work, but it all paid off,” he said. Joni’s coach, Micheline

Metcalfe, has been working with the teen for two years. “He is an excellent jumper; it would be accurate to describe him as a natural,” she said in an email. “He is also light, quick and agile on his feet.” Metcalfe added Joni has a strong work ethic and keeps at his drills until his goals are accomplished. “I am really pleased with his progress,” she said. “His improvement is quite astonishing considering the very short span of time we have been together, and he is a joy to coach.” She said Joni’s enthusiasm is obvious, and he’s in the arena practicing at ever opportunity. “His commitment does not begin and end with him – he also works with the younger skaters, both as a partner for the girls’ dances and also as a CanSkate professional assistant. Most of the coaches in our club remark on Joni’s punctuality, reliability and generosity of time in terms of setting-up and putting-away the CanSkate materials. You can always count on him to help out.” Three Glen Cairn Skating Club members also placed at the provincial competition. Eliza Moore received bronze in the junior silver ladies category, Lucas Nguyen won silver for pre-juvenile men under-14, and Tim Pham won gold in the gold men freeskate category. OBSTACLES

Corresponding with Joni, he said he was grateful to talk about the sport from a male skater’s perspective. “When performed by male skaters, unfortunately (it) does not look masculine enough in everyone’s eyes,” said Joni. He loves the sport but points out there are cons for male figure skaters. Joni has endured bullying for participating in something he enjoys. “I find that teenagers (boys and girls) have something

against male figure skaters. I’ve been called gay before, but I just ignore those people,” he said. “Nobody knows what figure skaters go through. We train lots and lots and it’s pretty amazing how far we can push ourselves.” The sport requires a lot of strength and power. Skaters need “the speed of a sprinter, the balance of a tightrope walker, and the endurance of a marathon runner,” said Joni. “I find it amazing how figure skaters can rotate three times in the air, and land on a three-millimetre-wide blade, on one foot,” he added. “During the take-off of a jump, one has to carry two to four times their own body weight. Not only that, but on the landing of a jump, you have to support seven times your body weight on the landing of a triple. We need to acquire an enormous amount of strength.” When it comes to bullying and stereotypes, Metcalfe said she works with her skaters to build a positive self-image. “I don’t have any magic SUBMITTED solutions to eschew the action Morgan’s Grant teen Joni Benedeczky, 16, won first place at the 2013 Skate Ontario STARand results of bullying and Skate competition in the senior bronze men category earlier this year. The March Kanata misguided stereotypes,” she Skating Club member is joined by coach Micheline Metcalfe. said. R0012096224 “Through my method, I focus on building strength of character and reinforcing selfesteem through the setting and achievement of goals. This success seems to instill a sense of pride and accomplishment, which seems to make my students resilient to the above.” Up next for Joni is a desire to compete on a national level. “I do not know for sure how far I would like to take figure skating, but it would be nice to compete nationally. It would be a great and enjoyable experience,” he said. “I’m working on improving my spins, perfecting my double jumps, and I am starting to work on my triples, which will hopefully open some doors to different levels of competitions in the years to come.”

Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson is given a skin exam by Dr. Jillian Macdonald at the Ottawa Hospital’s dermatology unit on May 16, as Dr. Jim Walker looks on. The hospital is launching a campaign to raise $3 million to fund a new, comprehensive dermatology centre at the Civic Campus.

Ottawa Hospital campaign begins for dermatology centre Steph Willems steph.willems@metroland.com

EMC news - After a long, bleak winter, many Ottawans are now content to bask in the warm rays of a bright sun. While vitamin D is a wonderful thing, each year many Canadians find themselves diagnosed with skin cancer, even those who take precautions and fall outside of the common age range for the affliction. The Ottawa Hospital is hoping to become a leader in treating the many forms of skin cancer by combining all dermatology services into one location at its Civic Campus. The hospital plans to establish a melanoma rapid diagnosis and management clinic, as well as a psoriasis systemic therapy clinic, in order to reduce wait times for patients. To realize this vision, the hospital is embarking on a $3 million fundraising campaign. It kicked off the initiative with a May 16 media tour of the Parkdale Clinic’s Mohs surgical unit, guided by doctors Jim Walker and Jillian Macdonald of the Ottawa Hospital’s admittedly cramped dermatology unit. “With the new Dermatology Centre of Excellence,

this area would be doubled in size,” said Walker, adding, “The lab would be doubled (in size) and we’d increased from three to five surgery rooms, and increase our operation from three days a week to five days a week.” Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson is serving as honorary campaign chairman for the initiative. His involvement stems from personal experience: Watson has twice been diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma, a form of skin cancer. The first diagnosis came, oddly enough, during a health exhibition at Queen’s Park while he was serving as an MPP. “I’m very appreciative of the fact my skin cancer was caught relatively soon, but sadly there are many people in our community that don’t have that early detection and as a result are not as fortunate as I am,” said Watson. “We’re blessed in Ottawa to have some great physicians, great scientists and researchers, but we need more capacity. We know that with an aging population and a growing population, plus everything from the depletion of the ozone layer and its impact on skin, that the problem will get worse before it gets better.”

Watson served as a test subject while Macdonald demonstrated a routine skin exam, where doctors look for suspicious cancerous or precancerous lesions. Like all cancers, early detection ensures the best possible outcome for patients. Often thought of as a worry for middle aged people and the elderly, skin cancer is fickle and doesn’t follow rigid boundaries. Ottawa resident Jessica Trotto was on hand to relate her experience with skin cancer. Trotto, a self-described “country bumpkin” who loves the sun and was a past user of tanning beds, was diagnosed with a cancerous lesion near her eye while still in her early 30s. Now 36, Trotto said she was shocked when the diagnosis of basal cell carcinoma was handed down. While helpful physicians at the hospital guided her through the process, the month-and-a-half wait to rid her body of the cancer drew out her fear. “The wait is terrifying. I would have nightmares of the skin cancer growing overnight,” said Trotto. “It’s imperative to reduce those wait times and get those people in as soon as possible.”

do great with a family who is active, and will provide her with daily exercise and the opportunity to socialize with other dogs! Daphne will make a great family pet for families with kids 4 and over and are comfortable around dogs. This highly food motivated gal is looking to show you just how smart she is, if you are willing to give her the opportunity!

Ace and King Hello, my name is Ace and I am a 3 year old cockatiel bird. My bernedoodle friend here is named King or officially Kingston. He is only 10 months old and when our Mommy adopted him she laid down the law and made sure he was very gentle with me since my wings are clipped and I can’t fly very well. He was a very good boy and I am not scarred of him one bit in fact I can hitch a ride on his back anytime! 9dndji]^c`ndjgeZi^hXjiZZcdj\]idWZÆI=:E:ID;I=:L::@Ç4HjWb^iVe^XijgZVcYh]dgi W^d\gVe]nd[ndjgeZiidÒcYdjiH^beanZbV^aid/X[dhiZg5i]ZcZlhZbX#XVViiZci^dcÆEZid[i]ZLZZ`Ç

CPR classes pay off for Grade 12 student brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC news - The ďŹ rst aid and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) course that Cairine Wilson offers as a part of the Grade 12 exercise science class could have been the difference between life and death for the father of one student. Student Alex Carter may have saved her dadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life, performing CPR after returning home from school on April 15 and realizing her dad was hav-

ing a massive heart attack. The 911 dispatchers asked if anyone in the home was comfortable performing CPR, which Carter had learned during her class. After four days in intensive care, he was able to come home. Principal Kevin Gilmour said that the school was very proud of the student as paramedics said she may have saved her dadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life. Exercise science teacher Krista Corneil said she includes the certiďŹ cation, the

standard ďŹ rst aid and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Câ&#x20AC;&#x2122; level CPR, in the class as a part of the cardiovascular and respiratory system unit. The course tries to give students all certiďŹ cations they can, to help with future employment and of course, in case they need to use it â&#x20AC;&#x201C; like in Carterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s case. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They said if you know CPR, you should get going,â&#x20AC;? Corneil said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So she got going.â&#x20AC;? Corneil brings in a thirdparty instructor to run the

course, which the students pay a fee to take. All Grade 9 students at Cairine Wilson Secondary School get free basic ďŹ rst aid training. Corneil said that sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to see all the Grade 12 students at the school take the certiďŹ cation course that Carter took in December. It needs to be a basic skill that everybody has. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a basic skill,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something that everyone should have in the back of their minds.â&#x20AC;?

Scrivens family hosts Alzheimer’s golf tournament at Metcalfe Golf and Country Club Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - The first annual Scrivens Classic golf tournament will tackle dementia on and off the green this weekend. On Saturday, May 25, 145 golfers will gather at Metcalfe Golf and Country Club for a day of golf and camaraderie to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society of Ottawa and Renfrew County. Good weather and great golfing conditions will hopefully make for a wonderful afternoon of golf. The tournament is a follow-up to the Scrivens Classic bonspiel in February, which raised $10,000 for the charity.

Metcalfe resident Patti-Anne Scrivens and her family have organized local fundraisers like Hunks for Hammers and the Nunavut Snowsuit Fund. So when her brother-in-law was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s at a young age, they decided to start fundraising for the Alzheimer’s Society as well. “It’s his only brother and he’s in his early 60s and he’s to a point where he’s in bad shape,” said Karley Bezanson, tournament organizer and girlfriend of the family’s oldest son. “They had never done a golf tournament before and I’m a big golfer, and I’ve organized golf tournaments before,” she added.

ing them in the summer,” she said. The participation cost is $100, and those funds will be supplemented with live and silent auctions, a raffle and some fundraising games and activities. “I figure the first year we’ll see how much we raise and then make a goal after that,” Bezanson said. Although the tournament is already full, Bezanson said they are still accepting cash and prize donations to help them raise even more money at the tournament. “Auction prizes are good, and we’re hoping to give out some free prizes as well,” she said. To donate or for more information, contact Bezanson at 613.325.5712 or karley.bezanson@hotmail.com.

Metcalfe resident PattiAnne Scrivens and her family have organized local fundraisers like Hunks for Hammers and the Nunavut Snowsuit Fund.
