EMC news - The music is fading at the Osgoode Old Tyme Music and Dancing Club. For 30 years, the country and western dance club has offered musicians and music lovers an evening of footstomping entertainment once a month at the Osgoode Community Centre. But the fun is coming to an end. Declining membership – largely due to the aging population – has cut revenue at a time when rent and insurance are only going up. “We don’t have enough members to keep it going, unfortunately,” said treasurer Barb Brogan. “We don’t want to close it down but we don’t have much choice.” Brogan said the club used to be 200 members strong, but that has declined to only about 65 members. As the older members die or become unable to attend, there are very few younger members signing up to take their place. Brogan said many members are in their 70s and 80s, and a few are in their 90s. Only two or three couples are in their 50s, she said. That kind of membership is unsustainable. “We’ve tried (attracting young people) over the years,” she said. “We’ve tried everything. All of the clubs are finding the same thing as we have.” Seven clubs in the area including North Gower, Greely, Vernon, Barrhaven and Ottawa’s west end have all faced declining memberships, Brogan said. Some have also considered closing their doors. Past-president Eugene Gorgichuck served seven years at the helm, and said it is “heartwrenching” to shut the doors after celebrating the club’s 30th anniversary in October. “It’s definitely a bitter thing

for us,” Gorgichuck said. “The club served as an opportunity for so many seniors to get together and do something other than sit at home and watch TV.” While it’s true that the population of people interested in traditional country music is declining, Gorgichuk said the club had other options to keep going, such as increasing membership fees and trying harder to attract more members. “Not everyone was in agreement that every effort was made to save the club,” he said. Gorgichuk added that the club’s constitution requires all property to be sold for charity when it dissolves. The club’s collection of instruments and other items were indeed sold, but not at the AGM as Gorgichuk said they should have been. “They were already sold for a lump sum of $1,000,” he said, adding that he felt an auction would have raised a larger sum. “An open auction could have earned some charity a lot more money.” It is not yet decided which charity will receive the funds. During Gorgichuk’s time as president between 1993 and 1999, the club had a waiting list of 20 couples. The club began a newsletter full of club events, member news and humour. Gorgichuk began inducting new musicians into the club with a special string tie featuring the club’s fiddle emblem, and the club sponsored the annual (and now defunct) Russell Jamboree. The club even tried to implement a youth hour where young musicians could come and play at the monthly dances, but it was a tough sell. “It’s all older people and I guess the younger people just don’t dig that,” Gorgichuk said.

OLG refutes mayor’s view of slots revenue agreement Lottery corporation says it wouldn’t renegotiate if casino is built Laura Mueller and Alex Boutilier, Metro News

EMC news - As the mayor and city clerk assured councillors that Ottawa would get a new revenue-sharing agreement if a new casino is built, the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation confirmed that wasn’t the case. During a city council meeting on Nov. 14, city clerk and solicitor Rick O’Connor assured city councillors that a new money-distribution agreement for the slots at Rideau Carleton Raceway would not be binding on a new facility, as the OLG looks for a private developer to build a new casino in Ottawa. “We’re going to have a new arrangement and a new agreement if council decides on a new casino,” Mayor Jim Watson said. That under-

standing was based on discussions he has had with the OLG over the past couple of weeks, Watson said. Not so, says OLG spokesman Tony Bitonti. “(The current agreement) will apply to a new casino as well,” Bitonti said. “The new agreement takes effect April 1 (2013), and then if and when a new casino is built, that will be the same funding agreement with the City of Ottawa. “Nothing changes.” O’Connor confirmed there are a couple of outstanding process issues he needs to get answers on. One issue that still needs to be clarified is a provision tying the new agreement to the location of the current slots at the Rideau Carleton Raceway. See SLOTS page 2

mother giving an allowance to her child.” Despite questioning the agreement, city councillors voted 20-3 to approve the new revenue-sharing deal, which has no expiry date. Over the past five years, the city has received between $4.3 and $4.4 million annually from 1,250 slot machines at the Rideau Carleton Raceway. The new agreement would put $1.3 million more into the city’s coffers each year if slot revenue remains the same. The agreement means the city gets 5.25 per cent of the first $65 million of net slot revenue, three per cent on the next $135 million, 2.5 per cent of the next $300 million and half a per cent of the remainder of net slot revenue.

RBC secures new cardiac machines for Winchester hospital Emma Jackson

EMC news - Exactly one year after the hospital’s fundraising campaign began, a set of four urgently needed cardiac monitors have been purchased for the Winchester District Memorial Hospital’s operating recovery room.

We want to thank not just RBC, but all the donors who gave $70,000 and change. Chelsea McIntyre

The RBC Foundation took the campaign over the top with a $5,000 donation on Nov. 6, allowing the hospital to finally purchase the $70,500 worth of equipment. The remaining funds came from individual donors and community events, including a very successful golf tournament this summer that was sponsored by a local RBC branch. The four new monitors are needed to replace the current machines, which are used to monitor heart rate, blood pressure and other vital statistics after a patient has undergone surgery. Since the recovery room is

equipped with four beds, there is a need for a cardiac monitor at each bed for the more than 4,400 patients who recover there every year. However, the hospital’s current machines don’t work properly and Winchester has been borrowing equipment from CHEO until it can buy new equipment, according to fund development manager Chelsea McIntyre. Each machine cost just under $20,000 and should be installed by the end of March, McIntyre said. The hospital had originally been quoted $80,000 for the monitors, but the hospital directors decided that one component was non-essential. That lowered the total cost by nearly $10,000. Individual donations were solicited through more than 20,000 letters to patients and past donors. More than 500 gifts were made in support of the new machines, McIntyre said. “We want to thank not just RBC, but all the donors who gave $70,000 and change,” she said. Winchester RBC branch manager and area resident Marieke van Noppen-Mulligan presented the $5,000 donation to the hospital foundation’s Brent Tower, who sits on the foundation board and also works for RBC.

“I’m so grateful on behalf of the WDMH Foundation as a recipient of this gift and I’m proud to be a part of both of these organizations,” Tower said in a statement. Winchester District Memorial Hospital Foundation’s purpose is to raise funds to support the hospital in providing “the very best of health care close to home for the residents, who are the heart of our community, and whose wellbeing depends on this fundamental right.” Visit foundation to make a donation.

Fentanyl abuse a growing concern for parents Nevil Hunt

EMC news - Try and try again. People who are addicted to the drug Fentanyl may have to try rehab over and over again before they finally kick the powerful painkiller. That’s not the message many people wanted to hear during a meeting at Manotick United Church on Nov. 14, but it’s reality according to a counsellor with Rideauwood Addiction and Family Services. The meeting switched back and forth from cold, clinical facts about Fentanyl to emotional dialogue about the effect the powerful drug has had on local families. More than 50 people attended; many appeared to be the right age to have teenaged children. Last August, 17-year-old Tyler Campbell of Manotick died of an overdose of Fentanyl. The public meeting was organized by MPP Lisa MacLeod, who invited Ottawa police officers, Dr. Melanie Willows of the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre and Rideauwood’s Amanda Neilson. Experts on hand said Fentanyl abuse often pops up in small pockets, affecting one community while sparing oth-

ers nearby. Manotick and the nearest high school – St. Mark Catholic – have been seriously affected by the drug’s use and the property crime that comes with it, as users steal to pay for their next drug purchase. Fentanyl is a prescription pain killer that comes in patch form and is meant to be worn on the skin and absorbed slowly over a period of two or three days. Addicts remove the gel from inside the patch and either smoke or inject it, releasing all the potency of the drug in one quick burst. Willows said many teens will experiment with drugs but an opiate like Fentanyl – which is much more potent than morphine – is much higher risk, in part because users can become addicted very quickly. Willows and Neilson stressed that addiction can happen to anyone. “You didn’t cause it,” Neilson told the audience. “You can’t control it.” Neilson said parents of addicts can cope. She said fear and anger are natural responses to finding out a child is addicted to a drug, but parents must deal with those emotions and then move forward, getting professional help as needed. She said education and understanding are key, “but it doesn’t have to happen

all on your own.” Rideauwood Addiction and Family Services can be reached at 613-724-4881 or at One member of the audience said there isn’t enough support for families affected by Fentanyl addiction, adding that teens who have gone through rehab quickly return to using the drug. “There will be another death,” she said. “I couldn’t care less about break and enters. The resources aren’t there. They’re not working.” MacLeod said there appeared to be a consensus that another community meeting will be needed and she encouraged attendees to speak one-on-one with the experts on hand after the questionand-answer session. Prior to the meeting, MacLeod said there has been a lot of interest in Fentanyl abuse in the community. “Tonight is about bringing people together, getting the right people at the table,” she said. Police officers at the meeting suggested people with prescriptions for Fentanyl dispose of used, surplus or expired patches properly. Drug stores will accept the return of any unused prescription medicines for proper disposal.


Dennis Westwell speaks about the death of his 17-year-old grandson from an overdose of Fentanyl during a public meeting to discuss abuse of the drug. The emotional meeting was held in Manotick on Nov. 14.

Fentanyl: signs of abuse your online source for FREE online coupons

EMC news - During a public meeting in Manotick on Nov. 14, Dr. Melanie Willows of the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre outlined the ways a Fentanyl user may appear after using the drug. Signs include: * Small, pin-point pupils; * Drowsiness; * Slurred speech; *Poor attention or memory. Users who smoke the gel from Fentanyl patches may dispose of charred pieces of aluminum foil, which they use to hold the gel as they


heat it. Straws or hollow ballpoint pen casings may be used to inhale the smoke. When an addict hasn’t used the drug for a period of time, they may begin to show withdrawal symptoms such as: * Anxiety; * Irritability and anger; * Nausea, vomiting; * Sweats and chills; * Insomnia. Addicts who enter professional treatment often receive medicines that alleviate symptoms of withdrawal.

Metcalfe Lions give $10,000 to care centre Campaign hopes to raise $500,000 in a year Emma Jackson

EMC news - The Metcalfe Lions kicked off a major fundraising campaign last week with a $10,000 donation to the Township of Osgoode Care Centre. The cheque changed hands on Wednesday, Nov. 14 at the Metcalfe Lions Den, marking the first major contribution to the care centre’s campaign to raise $500,000 to upgrade the not-for-profit chronic care facility on Snake Island Road. “It’s truly overwhelming to think they’re so generous to our cause,” said Wendy Hill, the centre’s community relations manager. She said the Lions have been strong supporters for the centre since the beginning. The chronic care facility was built largely through community fundraising in the 1980s, and it is once again calling on residents in the former township of Osgoode and surrounding areas to help repair and replace a long list of items. Over the next two years, executive director Lori Dudley and her staff need to replace the roof, update the heating and air conditioning system and install a backup generator – projects costing more than $100,000 each. Replacing each of the hilo specialty beds will cost $2,500, for a total of $245,000 for 98 new beds. New floors in residents’ rooms, where tiles are coming up and posing a safety hazard, will cost as much as $2,300 per room. Equipment like sit-stand lifts

and a point-of-care computerization system are also badly needed. REAL PEOPLE

Staff also want to replace aging dining room tables, bedroom furniture and decor as well, because, after all, the centre is home to 100 people. “This is a home with real people,” said Hill. “They have a history and have lived their lives.” Metcalfe Lions president Kim Sheldrick said the community service group is happy to support the care centre because it is home to so many local residents. “Everybody there is from the area. Everybody knows somebody in there,” Sheldrick said. “We just wanted to kick off their campaign with a substantial amount of money.” The cash was raised by the Lions through the weekly canteen at the Metcalfe farmers market and fair, as well us special events. The Lions’ donation comes just in time for the centre to unveil its new Giving Tree, a decorative feature in the centre’s atrium that will thank donors for their contributions. Gold, silver and bronze leaves will be added to the tree’s branches as donations come in, and the tree’s reach will continue growing around the atrium as more leaves are added. On Nov. 29, the centre will host a free wine and cheese event to unveil the tree and place the first leaves upon it. The Lions’ leaf will be added, along with the other donors

have already given $24,000 collectively to the campaign. Hill said Osgoode Coun. Doug Thompson and NepeanCarleton MPP Lisa MacLeod will be on hand to help dedicate the new fixture. The wooden tree trunk and branches were hand drawn and cut, and the leaves will be made of aluminum, copper and brass. Hill said the leaves will double as a decoration and a legacy; families can engrave them in memory of their loved one or businesses can recognize their financial contribution. “People need to be recognized for their generosity to the care centre and the people who live here need to know who have supported the care centre,” Hill said. “This will be an everlasting tree that will not only be pretty but serves a purpose.” Hill is also planning a community fundraiser for February that she hopes will collect as much as $15,000 toward their goal. Busting out the Brews will offer an evening of beer tasting, live music and dancing and a chili cook-off. On Feb. 1, several microbreweries from across the region will offer samples, which will be paired with appetizers and samples from local restaurants. The Gang will provide live blues music and a mix of other tunes, and several local real estate agents will face off over their Crock-Pots. Silent and live auctions will round out the evening. To donate or to purchase event tickets for February, contact Hill at 613-821-1034, ext 248.

EMC news – Volunteers will help the Township of Osgoode Care Centre prepare for the Christmas season on Dec. 6, as part of the United Way’s community action day. Three volunteers have signed up to work directly with the residents of the chronic care facility to decorate for the holiday season and bake shortbread cookies with

Taking green bin recycling to new heights


he city should be applauded for moving ahead with a plan to deliver the full spectrum of recycling possibilities to apartment dwellers. A plan approved by a city committee last week would see all types of recycling services â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including green bins â&#x20AC;&#x201C; available to people living in new multi-residential buildings. Garbage isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a sexy topic, but it is an expensive one.

If residents of this city donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t divert trash from the Trail Road landfill into coloured recycling bins, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll fill up the dump and be forced to send our waste further afield. The cost will be enormous â&#x20AC;&#x201C; just as the cost of building a new landfill would be enormous â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best to delay that outcome, and recycling is the solution the city is backing. In 2010, 53,349 tonnes of organic waste were collected from Ottawa homes; in

2011, that number rose only slightly to 55,063. A few people who live in apartments have been part of a pilot project to see how green bins might work for all multi-residential buildings. There are challenges presented by multi-unit residences, because places such as apartment complexes rarely have space to store green bins. The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan under review would require landlords to construct waste handling

systems for future buildings. The cost of adding recycling space during the construction of a new building is minimal when compared to retrofitting. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a small price to pay and the sooner new buildings come with recycling space, the more waste can be diverted from the landfill. Given that the city is encouraging intensified development, we can expect to see more people in apartments in the future. Making sure all

those apartment dwellers can sort and store recyclables is critical. There will be challenges, and some were discussed at a recent meeting of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s planning committee. If bins are not located near apartment entrances, people with mobility issues will have a hard time participating. Councillors are understandably worried about putting in place a policy that may leave residents on the outside looking in.

Hopefully this will be the first step towards adapting the green bin program to work at existing multiunit residential properties, which would allow organic waste diversion to become even more widespread. It is entirely conceivable that solutions implemented at new buildings could be retrofitted to work at existing structures. But until that time the city is taking the appropriate steps to ensure that even if some people canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t or wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do their part and recycle, Ottawa is moving in the right direction on the waste management file.


Awaiting the pre-population explosion CHARLES GORDON Funny Town


went to fill out one of those online forms the other day and when I got to about the second page of it, I found out that it had been pre-populated. Yes. There was a note there saying that as a convenience to me, parts of the form had been pre-populated. The room, all of a sudden, felt crowded. But what it meant was that parts of the form had already been filled in with information that the website already knew about me. That wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t very much, as it turned out, just my name and not even my phone number. You can imagine, however, how alarming it would be to be subject to more extensive pre-population. This, in a way, is what all the concern about online privacy is about. People put stuff about themselves up there and it hangs around and hangs around. There are probably a lot more people than you think who know where you live, your telephone number and email address. And there are others who know things about your buying habits. If you are worried about your personal pre-population exceeding that, you have to be careful. For example, I would never tell put it online that the other day I decided to use Baseline and Heron as a quicker way to get from west to east. Nobody does that, right? Well, the Queensway looked really slow, so I made one of those instant decisions that took me right to the Idiot Drivers Hall of Fame. Mind you, it took quite a while to get there. There were all the stoplights, and then the 25 minutes it took to get from Heron Road Bridge to Riverside.

The first 20 minutes on Heron Road were spent wondering why nobody was moving, especially me. The next three minutes were spent wondering why nobody bothered to put up a CONSTRUCTION sign until we were almost at the construction and the two minutes after that were spent wondering why somebody couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have let us all know 25 minutes ago the left lane was the one that was going to end. All the information available in the world, all the ultra-modern means of transmitting it and we sit there on Heron Road, motionless and clueless. Surely this information could have been pre-populated somewhere. The radio didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have anything and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s against the law to fiddle with your phone to find out. A caveman sitting where Heron Road is now would have had just as much information as we did. All of which leads to a profound conclusion: We have all kinds of information available to us, more than ever before. Your phone probably has more information in it than all the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s libraries in 1912, for all I know. So yes, we have all kinds of information available to us. We just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the right kind. Some day soon all this will be fixed. We will have the equivalent of smartphones implanted in us, perhaps. They will tell us which lane to be in, which roads to avoid, when the snowplow is coming, which parking lots are not full, which stores still have the toy we wanted to buy for Christmas. We will be pre-populated like crazy. But will this make us happy? Probably not. We will be distracted by too much information, confused over having too many choices. You can see it happening now and it can only get worse. It is possible that we will long for the good old days when there was only one thing at a time we needed to now and we knew how to find it. Strange as it may seem, we may one day look nostalgically back on being stuck in traffic, on Heron Road, blissful in our ignorance on the way to the Idiot Drivers Hall of Fame.

Hottest toys unveiled in time for Christmas

EMC news - Santa’s job is a little easier now that the Canadian Toy Testing Council has unveiled the top 10 toys on the market for 2013. More than 500 children between the ages of six months and 12 years tested toys for a period of eight to 12 weeks. Their feedback formed the basis for the council’s Children’s Choice Awards, which it hands out annually just in time for the holiday shopping season. Though toys seem to increasingly require batteries or a high-tech touchscreen to operate, the council’s kid testers gravitated towards toys that involve a little imagination. For children under two, Little Tikes won for its DiscoverySounds activity garden that plays music and includes many windows and cubbies to explore. “I like the sounds that the garden makes,” said Ethan Gayed, 5, who announced the Children’s Choice Award for Little Tikes. A Fisher Price kitchen and dining room set, complete with plastic pizza, cookies, dishes and pans, was also a huge hit. “We can make food and pretend to cook things,” said six-year-old Barrhaven resident Lyra Erhardt. “And then we can pretend to eat it.” Building toys were also popular. The Ed Creator DaVinci block gears, which won in the three years and up category, use magnets to stick together in an infinite number of combinations and designs. Bill and Betty Bricks, which won for five-year-olds, are a set of traditional wooden blocks that turn into towering skyscrapers in no time. Playmobil won for sevenyear-olds with its Future Planet ranger headquarters play set. While building the space station is fun, playing with it afterwards is the best part, said Dillon Snasdell-Taylor, a seven-year-old Carp resident who announced Playmobil’s Children’s Choice Award.

The Playmobil set did have one high-tech feature: a working solar panel that powers a large fan on top of the space headquarters. Board games like Pick N’ Choose – which requires players to sculpt, hum and act out clues – the rapid-fire jewel game Mine Shift and strategic ogre-outsmarting game Race to the Treasure all won awards as well.

Though toys seem to increasingly require batteries or a hightech touchscreen to operate, the council’s kid testers gravitated towards toys that involve a little imagination. A Swiss-made finger billiards game won a children’s choice award for ages four and up, another example of an educational and interactive game that caught kids’ attention. This is the council’s 60th anniversary. Liliane Benoit said the independent toy testing authority relies on more than 200 Canadian families to determine which toys stand up to the test of safety and durability, how well they function and how much fun they deliver. Benoit said the non-profit organization aims to encourage the design, manufacture and distribution of toys and books that are sensitive to children’s needs.

Prime Minister makes surprise visit to Kanata Blair Edwards

Since being elected in 2006, our Conservative Government has established a number of important tax relief measures including the new Children’s Arts Tax Credit. We all want the best for our children, and I know that many families right here in Nepean-Carleton are working hard to ensure theirs can participate in artistic and cultural activities. I am committed to supporting these hardworking families help their children reach their full potential. In 2011, nearly 500,000 Canadians claimed the credit on their tax returns. It is wonderful to see so many families taking advantage of this opportunity. The Children’s Arts Tax Credit helps with the cost of organized artistic and cultural activities. When children take part in eligible art programs, families can claim the cost of those programs, up to a maximum of $500 per child, on their income tax and benefit returns. This means saving as much as $75 on their tax bill for each child’s programs. In addition, families can also claim the children’s fitness tax credit, also up to a maximum of $500 per child, for eligible programs – a proposal which I successfully had included in Budget 2006. We understand that families have a difficult time making ends meet, and that is why we will continue to offer programs like this to them. The average family of four now receives more than $3,000 in extra tax savings, and the federal tax burden for all Canadians is now the lowest it has been in half a century. Our Government remains committed to and focused on economic growth, the creation of jobs, and the long-term economic prosperity of Canadians. I encourage you to check the Canada Revenue Agency’s website for more information about all of the credits and tax savings you may eligible for. Remember, save your receipts for 2012 as you can start claiming these credits on your income tax benefit return when you file your taxes in early 2013. Pierre Poilievre MP Nepean-Carleton

Prime Minister Harper had some Christmas fun and shared the Christmas spirit at the Glen Cairn Christmas tree lighting ceremony. MP Gordon O’Connor and MPP Jack MacLaren. Christmas Décor by Nutri-Lawn decorated the evergreen tree, which is located on 70 Castlefrank Rd., near the intersection of McKitrick Drive. Hot chocolate and cookies were served during the event. Derrick Curren, who came up with the idea of holding a Christmas tree lighting ceremony, didn’t know the prime minister would attend the

event. “I knew something was taking place when I saw the trenchcoats (of the prime minister’s security detail) around,” he said. Curren was one of dozens of residents who lined up and had their photograph taken with Harper. “He just asked me my name; my wife mentioned it was my idea (for the event) and he said, ‘Nice idea.’” Sheila Feres and Kathleen

Feres-Patry said they enjoyed meeting the prime minister. “It was very special,” said Sheila. “He asked me my name, and I welcomed him to Glen Cairn.” At first, Kathleen said she couldn’t join in the photo opportunity. “I can’t, (because) I’ve got the dog,” she said, pointing at the family golden retriever, Taffy. “He said, ‘That’s OK, bring the dog in.’”

EMC News - Prime Minister Stephen Harper made a surprise visit to the Glen Cairn Tennis Club on Nov. 14, participating in a Christmas tree lighting ceremony. The prime minister arrived shortly before the start of the event, walking up Oriole Ave. accompanied by members of his protective detail. “I had asked the prime minister (that) if he wasn’t busy this evening, if he wouldn’t mind coming out and be our official Christmas tree lighter,” said Colin McSweeney, a vice-president of the Glen Cairn Community Association and friend of Harper. “He wasn’t busy, so here he is.” The ceremony started with Christmas music by the Glen Cairn Public School handbell choir, a group of grades 7 and 8 students, who performed traditional favourites such as Deck the Halls. After a few songs, the prime minister joined the children and lit the Christmas tree. More than 100 residents turned out for the first annual tree-lighting. The event was organized by the Glen Cairn Community Association, Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley and the Kourier-Standard. The event was attended by Carleton-Mississippi Mills

Greely Players bringing Christmas to the village

EMC news - Greely’s community theatre troupe is leaving Broadway tunes behind for its first community Christmas celebration this holiday. The Greely Players will host its first “Christmas in the Village” variety show at Parkway Pentecostal Church from 7 to 9 p.m. on Nov. 30 and Dec. 1. Organizer Joan Bruce-Nibogie said the lineup promises an evening of laughter, song and fellowship. “We are offering quite an array of Christian and popular music, dramatic readings, and it’s all Christmas themed,” she said. A 21-person adult choir and an 11-person children’s and teen choir have been created from past and present Greely Players cast and crew. A comedy sketch will bring out the season’s funnier side and, before everyone goes home, the choirs will lead the audience in a carol sing-along. Bruce-Nibogie, who has been involved with the Greely Players for years, said she has been hoping to produce such a Christmas show for several seasons.

“I’ve been thinking about it for a few years, keeping in mind that there are individual church Christmas concerts, but nothing for the community at large,” she said. “The Greely Players has such talent, and I really wanted to bring that to the fore as a celebration, to share the voices with the community.”

The Greely Players has such talent, and I really wanted to bring that to the fore as a celebration, to share the voices with the community. Joan Bruce-Nibogie

A number of choir members will sing solos throughout the evening. In the children’s choir, Isabella Kondrat, Tim Robillard, Eric Laycock, Matt Chin and Morgan Piironen will all take centre stage, and Chin will perform a duet with Greely Players president Holly Villeneuve.

Bruce-Nibogie will also perform The Huron Carol with the help of the children’s choir. Being Mohawk, she said it is very meaningful to perform the haunting carol for the crowd. “It’s very, very special,” she said. “I’m going to wear my native shawl for that number.” The theatre group has partnered with Parkway Pentecostal to rent their brand new sanctuary, which is decked out with state-of-the-art sound and lighting equipment. But the evening is a fundraiser for the South Gloucester United Church, which has offered free rehearsal space to the choirs since they began in September. The church will sell refreshments and host a silent auction during the event. Proceeds from ticket sales will also go to the church. Tickets are $10 per person, and children under five can attend for free. “We wanted to really make it affordable for the community, and because we’re partnering with these two churches we can do that. It’s a real gift,” Bruce-Nibogie said. Tickets can be purchased by calling 613-821-1756 or 613-826-3680.

City looks to set green bin rules for multi-res buildings at in isolation,” without considering the city’s other plans, such as the Older Adult Plan.

EMC news - New guidelines meant to standardize garbage and recycling bin requirements for multi-residential buildings left councillors with a slew of questions at a recent planning committee meeting. The design guidelines are aimed at preventing problems before they happen, said Melanie Knight, a planning staffer who worked on the guidelines. The document says property owners are responsible for constructing “proper and safe waste handling systems” for their buildings, and that the facilities must include room for garbage bins as well as recycling for blue-, blackand green-bin materials. Currently, there are no guidelines and the city doesn’t offer organics recycling for all multi-residential buildings. While a handful of apartments are part of a pilot project for green bin collection, many buildings don’t have the capacity to include another type of recycling bin. The guidelines aim to fix that. “Residents must have convenient access to facilitate their participation in the recycling and organics programs,” the document states. But councillors on the city’s planning committee were concerned that putting guidelines in place might make it difficult for seniors to take out their trash. Cumberland Coun. Stephen Blais started off the debate on Nov. 13 by saying the guidelines seemed to have been “looked

It’s great to say it’s going to be more efficient ... but how is it going to impact Joe and Jane Ottawa Resident? CUMBERLAND COUN. STEPHEN BLAIS

He and other councillors, including Bay Coun. Mark Taylor, were worried that a rule that waste bins must be no more than 100 metres from the dwelling might make it difficult for people with mobility challenges to get their garbage and recycling out. “It’s 100 metres there and 100 metres back,” Blais said. “For someone who has mobility issues ... a 200-metre walk to bring the garbage to the garbage can, that can put a strain on your lifestyle.” A consultant who worked on the guidelines pointed out that there is currently no maximum distance for how far away from the building the owner can place waste receptacles. “We’re trying to fill a void,” Rory Baksh said. But Blais and Taylor said the distance is just one example of how a resident could be affected by the guidelines. The councillors worried that the list was aimed at pleasing city planners, developers and garbage collectors, but was not as concerned with whether it would serve residents’ needs.

“It’s great to say it’s going to be more efficient or more attractive to look at and all these things these guidelines talk about, but how is it going to impact Joe and Jane Ottawa resident who is going to use it?” Blais asked. Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder said she was also concerned the guidelines are “too grandiose” and she wondered who would monitor the requirements to ensure they weren maintaining hygiene. “Are we really forgetting about the bigger picture?” she asked. Still, staff that worked on the project said without the guidelines there will be a bigger problem in the future. The planning committee approved the new guidelines with no changes. If approved by full council, the guidelines would be used at the site-plan stage to guide developers and city staff on how to achieve the solid waste requirements for new multi-residential buildings.

Identity protection helps fight scammers Brier Dodge

EMC news - If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. That’s the message that seniors at a Rotary Club fraud prevention presentation heard at the Orléans branch of the Ottawa Public Library on Nov. 14. The ABCs of Fraud presentation, which is endorsed by Ottawa police, has been going to different library branches this fall to educate seniors. West Ottawa Rotary Club members Bob Harrison and Linas Pilypaitis spoke to a group of seniors at the Orléans branch. Seniors are more vulnerable to fraud due of several factors, and are often seen as more susceptible, Harrison said. “When I grew up, I was trusting someone with a handshake,” he said. “The doors in my house were never locked.” These days, scams are a dime a dozen and it’s important that people – especially those more vulnerable to scams – take steps to protect themselves. While just over half of all scams arrive by email or electronic communication, there are also telephone and doorto-door scammers. A scam is where someone is supposed to give you something for your

money. They’ll end up giving nothing or something –not exactly as promised. “Everyone in the world is trying to get your money,” Pilypaitis said. The pair acted out an example of a scam for a fake security company. Harrison, the fake security salesman, sold Pilypaitis, acting as a senior, a heavily discounted alarm system. Besides providing a down payment Pilypaitis let Harrison do a full scope of the house, and let him know dates when there would be nobody home – leaving an empty house to rob. “Nobody needs to know when you’ll be away from your home,” Pilypaitis said. They gave some tips to protect identity and personal information, including not to leave mail in a box that anyone could access. Some mail, like tax returns, include information such as a social insurance number. Once a year, file a report for a credit history to check and see if anyone else has tried an unauthorized credit check, said Pilypaitis. They warned against the use of money transfers for anything that might not seem legitimate. A good rule of thumb is never give to any credit card information to anyone, unless you have initiated the contact, Pilypaitis said.


t seemed to me that not much money changed hands back in the Depression. Of course, there wasn’t much money around. Mother pretty well ran the house on what was in the sugar bowl holding her egg money, which came from selling eggs, cream, butter, chickens and sticky buns door-to-door in Renfrew on Saturdays and of course, in the summertime, a few more pennies were realized when she could add fresh vegetables from our ample garden to her wares. Father always had a few coins in his pocket, but they were few and far between. It seemed to me back then that most of the commerce of the day was done by bartering. Mr. Briscoe at Briscoe’s General Store wasn’t interested in trading what he sold for chickens, vegetables, cream or butter. After all, the entire Northcote farm area had an ample supply of those things themselves. But he always welcomed Mother’s sticky buns. These she traded for sugar and green tea. For the rare times old Dr. Murphy had to drive out all the way from Renfrew and there were very few coins in the egg money bowl, he would be paid for his visit with a freshly plucked

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories chicken, a sealer jar or fresh cream, and of course, eggs. There was always an ample supply of eggs and Dr. Murphy, it seemed to me, never expected to get cold hard cash for his trip out from Renfrew.

The stores in town were a different matter. Those owned locally were used to bartering with the farming community. But you could never make a deal with Walker’s Store, which was owned by some big firm in Toronto. It had to be cold hard cash. But it wasn’t unusual to see Mother making a deal at Scott’s Hardware or Aikenhead Store, trading a fresh chicken for chicken wire or freshly churned butter for cough medicine. There really was a Mr. Scott and a Mr. Aikenhead and they seemed to know

cash was scarce. I doubt Mother was ever turned away because she hadn’t the money to pay for what she needed. It seemed to me Father was continually bartering with other farmers in Northcote.

There was no embarrassment to trading one thing for another. It was just another tool that helped people of the 1930s survive.




Bartering for survival in the ’30s

It wasn’t at all unusual to see him walking a young heifer out the lane with a rope around its neck and coming back with a colt. Or he would load a sheep in the back of the old Model T and come back with a couple of newborn piglets. It was how the farm community survived the terrible Depression that closed in around them. Although we depended heavily on the hand me down boxes that came regularly from from Aunt Lizzie in Regina, it wasn’t at all unusual for the clothes to be traded

amongst the neighbours. I once got a lovely coat from my little friend Joyce who had outgrown it. I doubt we had anything to give her in return -- they were so much better off than we were. After all, Joyce lived in a brick house and had a toilet. As regular as clockwork, we had visits from Rawleigh and Watkins door-to-door salesmen. They travelled by horse and buggy, and we could always tell when they were coming in our long lane, because they both had big brass bells around their horse’s necks which gave plenty warning they were on their way. They were both great salesmen and it was hard to resist their wares. It wasn’t unusual for Mother, when she had bought over her limit to start bartering with them. They bantered back and forth and when the salesmen realized there wasn’t enough money to pay for what Mother had chosen, they could either take the couple pounds of butter and a few eggs, or pack up and leave. They usually accepted the barter. It seemed to me back then, that bartering was simply a way of life. There was no embarrassment to trading one thing for another. It was just another tool that helped people of the 1930s survive.

EMC lifestyle - Firm cheeses offer a great flexibility of use. They keep very well. They are delicious by themselves and can also be used in a thousand different ways in the kitchen. Pastas, cooked dishes, quiches, omelets, gratins, sandwiches and salads couldn’t survive by without them. At any meal, these cheeses add taste and nutritional value. Gratins are often laden with heavy cream and butter, and cheese. This lightened version is just as delicious and wonderfully comforting. To serve with roast meats or poultry, omit the ham. Preparation time: 15 minutes. Cooking time: one hour. Servings: four as main course or six as side dish. INGREDIENTS

• 1 bunch leeks (two to four) • 1 tbsp (15 ml) each of olive oil and butter

• 2 cloves garlic, minced • 1/2 tsp (2 ml) dried thyme leaves • 1/4 tsp (1 ml) each of salt and pepper • 1 tbsp (15 ml) Dijon mustard • 1/2 cup (125 ml) chicken or vegetable stock • 1 cup (250 ml) diced ham (about 125 g) • 1 kg potatoes (five to six medium) • 1/4 cup (50 ml) freshly grated parmesan or asiago cheese PREPARATION

Cut leeks in half lengthwise and wash well. Slice white and light green parts. In a nonstick skillet, heat the oil and butter over medium heat. Stir in the leeks and garlic and cook until slightly softened, for three to five minutes, stirring often. Remove from heat. Season with thyme, salt and pepper. Stir in the mustard, stock and ham and then set aside. Peel and thinly slice the po-

tatoes to about a quarter inch (half a centimetre) thick. Place one-third of the potato slices in a buttered eight- to 10-cup (two to 2.5 L) gratin or shallow baking dish. Spoon half of the leek mixture over top. Repeat layers once. Top with remaining potatoes. Cover with buttered parchment paper, pressing buttered side down. Bake in an oven at 400 F (200 C) for 45 to 50 minutes or until the potatoes are tender when pierced with a knife. Remove parchment paper. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake for 15 minutes to melt cheese and lightly brown potatoes. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving. Tip: A mandolin or food processor makes even, thin potato slices. To make slicing easier, cut potatoes in half crosswise and place flat edge down on mandolin. Foodland Ontario


THE CANADIAN CANCER SOCIETY PROVIDES THE WHEELS OF HOPE TO HELP CANCER PATIENTS GET TO THEIR TREATMENTS. For many, Wheels of hope is a life line. It can be the difference between getting to cancer treatment or not. Single mom Chelsie Geib knows all too well how difficult it can be to manage a family and make it to sometimes daily appointments; “Do you know what is worse than being diagnosed with cancer? Not being able to get to the appointments you need to save your life. When I had lost all hope my final call was to the Canadian Cancer Society, who informed me of their free service that helps people like me get to the hospital for appointments. Knowing I could turn to the Society felt like a heavy weight had been lifted off my shoulders. I really could fight this disease – and win.” Canadian Cancer Society volunteer drivers help people like Chelsie fight back against cancer. In Ottawa alone last year, Society volunteers drove a total of 90, 781 km to ensure that people got to their radiation and chemotherapy treatments. The program is free for cancer patients and is especially vital for people without the financial means or nearby friends and family to help make the often daily trips to their appointments.

Ditch kids for date night, shopping this season Emma Jackson

EMC news - It’s never easy finding time to Christmas shop when the kids are with you, but two community services are hoping to help you steal a few hours to yourself. At Watson’s Mill in Manotick, the museum is offering a brand new Drop and Shop program three Saturdays in December leading up to Christmas. For $10, parents can drop their kids off at the museum for four hours of fun while the adults shop in the village. Mill education officer Cam Trueman said the Christmasthemed programs will keep kids busy and keep business local. “It’s going to be fun and the parents will have four hours

to do their shopping in the village,” Trueman said. “The parents can’t drop them off and go to Barrhaven to shop, they have to stay in the village,” he joked. Trueman said the programming from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Dec. 8, 15 and 22 is geared to kids ages five to 10. The kids will make Christmas crafts, write letters to Santa Claus and create unique Christmas tree ornaments to take home. They’ll also visit Dickinson House across the square for story time, and will likely bake cookies and decorate gingerbread houses. Manotick’s Business Improvement Area is supporting the program’s craft supplies. South of Manotick, the Osgoode Youth Association will offer a similar service on Saturday, Dec. 15. Between 4:30

and 9:30 p.m., OYA will entertain kids with a pizza party, movies, games and crafts while the parents enjoy a date night or a chance to do some shopping. “I think its going to be one of those programs that’s a real win-win for everybody,” said OYA executive director Nicole McKerracher, who planned the program. While the evening is branded a date night for parents, McKerracher said the possibilities are endless once the kids are safely having fun at the youth centre. “There are a lot of different things they can do on a night without kids,” she said. “I tried to keep in mind that a date night would not be something for everybody. Not everybody who has kids has the opportunity to go out on a date night,

for whatever reason.” The pizza party costs $20 per child, or $35 for two kids. McKerracher said that’s on par with most babysitting fees for a five-hour date. “The added benefit is we

feed them dinner, and I think the kids like to go out and play with their friends,” McKerracher said. The program is geared toward children ages four to 11. Registration for both pro-

grams is limited, so parents are urged to book their spots soon. To register at Watson’s Mill call 613-692-6455. To register for O-YA’s date night email o-yacentre@rogers. com.

Local talent shines in Orpheus production of Footloose Joseph Morin

EMC entertainment - The musical Footloose will premier at the Counterpointe Theatre on Nov. 23 and run until Dec. 2. The production features great dancing and music, not to mention wonderful acting. Producing a show as ambitious as Footloose required a small army of people, many of whom hail from Kemptville, Greely, Manotick and Metcalfe. Footloose is one of the most exciting and entertaining movie musicals in recent memory. The story thrives as a live stage performance. It is the tale of family led by Rev. Shaw Moore, a preacher who will not allow dancing of any kind in his town. The preacher, played by Ken Tucker, is trying to gain the control he feels he has lost power over his family by controlling the young people in town. He is a father longing for a son he has lost. The musical, which includes great music and dance, celebrates the wisdom of listening to the younger generation and helping them with love, patience and understanding and allowing love and joy to heal the heart. Serving as a catalyst is Ren McCormack (MathieuPhilippe Perras) a young man

from Chicago who has moved to the small farming town where Footloose takes place. McCormack does not understand or accept the rules in his new home. Caught up in the drama is the daughter of the preacher, Ariel Moore, played by Courtney Vezina a Kemptville actress. Vezina was raised in Kemptville and attended South Branch Elementary School, eventually studying at North Grenville District High School. After high school, she went to St. Lawrence College in Brockville, Ont., where she studied musical theatre for a year. She later attended Carleton University to study psychology, graduating with a bachelor of arts last spring. She now works at a group home for troubled young men. Even after her change in career direction the theatre still called to her. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The theatre was always a passion of mine,â&#x20AC;? said Vezina, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but I had to put it on the back burner while I was working.â&#x20AC;? When the Orpheus Musical Theatre Society decided to perform Footloose and began auditions for cast members, Vezina was ready. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I loved how the musical combined dancing, music and acting,â&#x20AC;? she said.


Mathieu-Philippe Perras takes on the role of Ren McCormack and Courtney Vezina plays Ariel Moore in the Orpheus Musical Theatre production of Footloose. When she was given the part of Ariel Moore she was thrilled. The production and her association with the Orpheus Society have been an eye-opener for her. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have performed on the stage before, but this is definitely the biggest production I have been involved with,â&#x20AC;? she said. Of the three skills required for Footloose â&#x20AC;&#x201C; singing, dancing and acting â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Vezina enjoys singing the most even though she has no problem at all with the acting and dancing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is what I am most passionate about,â&#x20AC;? she said.

Pet Adoptions PHOEBE





â&#x20AC;&#x153;I grew up singing in church and was always involved in music.â&#x20AC;? Footloose is a perfect mix of the three disciplines, she said. Vezina also enjoys stepping outside of herself to play the part of Ariel. Getting ready to put on the kind of performance expected by the theatre group is nerve wracking and exhilarating at the same time, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has been awesome. An awful lot of work in a good way,â&#x20AC;? said Vezina. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a great uplifting story.â&#x20AC;? Sarah Marks, a student at St. Mark Catholic High

School in Manotick, will be playing a part as one of the teen ensemble group. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I became a performer because I was put into dance when I was three and never stopped,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It started there then slowly progressed into taking vocal lessons and all of a sudden I was performing in musicals and having a blast with it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Footloose is another opportunity to be on stage and perform but on a much higher level,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is more professional than any show Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done and everyone involved is doing it because they want to improve and show their talents. I really like that in a theatre atmosphere. I am having so much fun with Footloose! Every day is another opportunity to improve my skills and become a better performer in all.â&#x20AC;? Evan Welchner, a student who lives in Orchard View in Greely, is another member of the teen ensemble and this will be his first Orpheus show. Evan played Mike TeeVee in Willy Wonka, and various chorus roles, and is trained in singing, breakdancing, hip hop. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to say exactly where a love of performing comes from, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had for as long as I can remember,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a bit of an adrenaline junkie, so I tend to jump on any per-

formance chances I get. That led to me getting into dance and theatre and such. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I heard about this show it seemed like a perfect fit for me, so I went ahead and auditioned,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now I get to sing, dance, and act, all at the same time, with a whole group of people who love it as much as I do. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a pretty good deal in my book.â&#x20AC;? Footloose has garnered its share of awards. It was nominated for Tony Awards for best book of a musical, best original score, best performance by a leading actress and best choreography. Tickets for the musical are available online: or calling 613-580-2700 or at the Centrepointe box office. Tickets are $40 and $37 for adults (orchestra/balcony), $37 for people 65 or older and $25 and $20 for children 12 and under. High school students can purchase $5 tickets through the eyeGo program. Student rush tickets are available for $10 and must be purchased at the box office with valid student ID. Tuesday and Wednesday tickets can be purchased ahead of time. All other days must be purchased on the day of the performance. Performances run from Tuesday to Saturday, starting at 7:30 p.m. Sunday matinee performances begin at 2 p.m.

Meet the only little polar bear in Orleans. Her name is Juno and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the baby of the family. She is a Polish Lowland Sheepdog (PON) for short and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our real life teddy bear. She is somewhat of a princess, we like to put pink and blue hair dye in her bangs and clip it back so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s out of her eyes. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bit of history on how we named her: We named her Juno for 2 reasons, my birthday and my sisterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s birthday are in June and guess what? So is hers. She is 1 1/2 years old. The second reason is because of Juno Beach, where Canadians fought on D Day. We love her soo much and couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t imagine life without her. Best Birthday gift ever! Do you think your pet is cute enough to be â&#x20AC;&#x153;THE PET OF THE WEEKâ&#x20AC;?? Submit a picture and short biography of your pet to ďŹ nd out!

Fleas, an annual external parasite, are mostly harmless. The biggest problem caused by ďŹ&#x201A;eas is itching. However, some pets or people may be allergic to ďŹ&#x201A;ea saliva, which causes ďŹ&#x201A;ea allergy dermatitis (super-itchy spots with hair-loss); young, sick or elderly pets can become anemic from too much blood loss. These wingless insects are capable of jumping long distances. While cat and dog ďŹ&#x201A;eas prefer to feast on animal blood, they will turn to a human host if needed. The life-cycle of a ďŹ&#x201A;ea has four stages: s %GGS WHICHFALLFROMTHEHOSTINTOTHEENVIRONMENT s ,ARVAE WHICHLIVEOFFOFTHEFALLENFECALMATTEROFADULT ďŹ&#x201A;eas found in carpets and in lawns. s 0UPAE WHICHISTHECOCOON4HEYDONOTEMERGEUNTILA host is detected (via warmth /vibration) s !DULTS WHICHFEASTONBLOOD If you do have a ďŹ&#x201A;ea-infestation, it is important to treat the petâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s environment as well, to eliminate ďŹ&#x201A;ea eggs and larvae. There are many over-the-counter products that help solve ďŹ&#x201A;ea problems such as ďŹ&#x201A;ea sprays (both for the pet and environment), shampoos, or collars. While the costs may be lower for over-thecounter products ($5 to $30), they often need to be reapplied to solve a ďŹ&#x201A;ea infestation.

The Osgoode Rideau Romans Major Atom team prepare for skating at Centennial Park.


EMC news - On Saturday, Nov. 10, the Osgoode Rideau Romans Major Atom team spent the morning in Manotick preparing Centennial Park’s outdoor rink for the upcoming skating season. Parents, team members and coach Matt Klassen raked, pulled weeds, cleared leaves and picked up garbage throughout the day. Klassen had contacted Noel Norenius, president of the Manotick

Culture, Parks and Recreation Association to see if his team could lend a helping hand. While the NHL may be arguing over multi-million dollar revenues, the roots of the game evolved from the culture of the outdoor rink. On that crisp sunny morning, parents worked alongside their sons and daughters and explained why this effort was important.

Aries, while there’s much about a situation that you don’t understand, you will quickly be filled in on all the details you need to know to get the job done. Taurus, confrontation will get you nowhere. It is better to avoid any troublesome parties and simply go on with your days. No need to put monkey wrenches in the plans. Take some time to reflect on what you need to get done, Gemini. Things are about to get more hectic, and it will help to know what is on your schedule in the coming days.

Here’s How It Works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

There is no point in speculating about your finances, Sagittarius. Keep track of your deposits and withdrawals so you have a handle on all accounts. Now is not the time to leap without looking, Capricorn. You have to be cautious with your choices and actions this time of the month. Don’t make waves so close to the holidays.

Virgo, there are too many messes to clean up, so instead of digging in you may just decide to procrastinate a little longer. Just be sure to make up the time later on.

Certain challenges may be tough to conquer, Scorpio. But with the right help you can get the job done. Gemini may be your shining light this week.

There is no need to put off romantic endeavors, Cancer. Make time to further relationships, and you will be happier for having made the additional effort. Leo, a casual encounter with an old friend goes by like no time has elapsed at all. Agree to keep in touch and spend more time together going forward.
