Running for the runs Rockcliffe Park student Lorien Harris waddles with a soccer ball at a rally with her Run for the Runs team mates on May 16. Harris and her classmates raised $330 for Micronutrient Initiative, which provides children in developing countries with zinc and oral rehydration salts to help those suffering from diarrhea. Rockcliffe Park Public School will participate in the Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend as part of the Runs for the Runs team in an effort to raise awareness for the organization.

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
