EMC news - It’s Chinese New Year time at Westwind Public School in Stittsville. The school will be enjoying a Chinese Dragon dance and a Chinese Lion dance at an assembly this Friday, Feb. 8, two days before the actual Feb. 10 date of the Chinese New Year. A group of grade five students have been learning about these traditional Chinese dances and rehearsing them for the past couple of weeks, preparing for this Friday’s performance. It is being presented to demonstrate this significant cultural event, the Chinese New Year, to the Westwind Public School community. They have been coached by

Margarita Chen, marketing manager of the Kungfu Bistro restaurant at the Stittsville Corners shopping area in Stittsville, who has also provided the costumes for both the Lions dance and the Dragon dance. While the Chinese Lion dance costumes are for only two persons, the Chinese Dragon dance costume is 35 feet long and involves up to nine people. It has a large head, weighing three pounds itself but the rest of the long, serpent-like body is light weight nylon with a bamboo frame. The dancers hoist the dragon custom up and animate it using attached wooden poles. It requires coordination of actions which is why a period of rehearsal is needed to prepare for this Friday’s performance.

Both the Chinese Lion dance and the Chinese Dragon dance ward off evil spirits and welcome good fortune. The dragon has long been revered in Chinese culture as a benevolent creature despite its fierce appearance. In feudal times, the dragon was thought to be the god of rain, thunder, stars and rainbows. Today, in Chinese culture, the dragon symbolizes power, dignity, wealth and respect. The colours of the dragon have their own significance: green is symbolic of a rich harvest; yellow represents the empire; gold and silver stand for prosperity; and red reflects good fortune and joyfulness.

EMC news - History will be coming alive in Stittsville on Saturday, Feb. 16. Those visiting the Goulbourn Township Historical Society’s open house at the Stittsville branch of the Ottawa Public Library between 1:30 p.m. and 4 p.m. will be bumping into a host of historic characters, all come to life in 2013 right here in Stittsville. You will have the chance to meet and ask questions of these historic characters – people like the Duke of Richmond, after whom Richmond is named and who in a freak of history died just outside the community in 1819. Or what about a chat with Mrs. Jonathan Pack – yes, the Jonathan Pack after whom a street in Stittsville is named. Or, given that this is another year when War of 1812 celebrations will be happening, you can expect to meet a gentleman and lady from the War of 1812 at this Feb. 16 open house. Children are also being urged to attend and ask their own questions of these historic characters. But there is going to be even more at this Historical Society open house celebrating the launching of Ontario’s Heritage Week which runs from Feb. 16 through to Feb. 23. In the library meeting room, there will be not only refreshments but also two who have an intimate knowledge of history dealing with Richmond. One will be Marion Scott who has developed a Richmond Heritage blog and who is probably the pre-eminent authority today about Richmond’s history. Another will be Bob Moore of Richmond who has an extensive knowledge of railway history, including the railway heritage of Richmond. In addition, the meeting room will feature a number of interesting historic maps supplied by the Goulbourn Museum. This open house, though, does not stop there. It is also providing the opportunity for anyone to explore the Historical Society’s archives at the library. Volunteers will be available to show you the resources available and how to use them including both the Society’s family and history files and its photo archives. There are both genealogical and general research resources and you can become familiar with all of them at this open house. In addition, both the library itself and the Historical Society offer a wide range of books for historical reading and/or research. The library also provides access to the website Ancestry.com. Everyone is invited to attend this free celebration of local history and Ontario’s Heritage Week on Saturday, Feb. 16 from 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Stittsville library branch. And while you are there, take a look at the library’s Art Space Wall which this month is featuring a display of photographs of stained glass windows in Goulbourn churches. These are some of the photographs that are featured in the Historical Society’s recently published book “Goulbourn Stained Glass.” Entitled “The Art of Stained Glass,” this exhibit has been prepared by the Historical Society.

Chinese New Year dancing Continued from page 1

R0011896462

Holding up the dragon head and part of its long serpent-like body as they rehearse a dragon dance for a performance at Westwind Public School in Stittsville this Friday, Feb. 8 in celebration of the upcoming Chinese New Year are students, from the right, front to back, Carson McClelland, Sarah Fraser and Madison Barnard.

Like the Lion dance, the Dragon dance is performed in time with drums, cymbals and gongs. Precise timing and teamwork are required to bring the dragon to life in a Dragon dance. Chinese New Year is the most important of the traditional Chinese holidays. The origin of Chinese New Year is itself centuries old and gains signiďŹ cance because of several myths and traditions. In the Gregorian calendar of the Western World, Chinese New Year falls on different dates each year – a date between Jan. 21 and Feb. 20. This year, falling on Feb. 10, Chinese New Year’s presiding animal is the snake.

When Maria Harrington arrived at work at her branch last Friday, she was greeted by an assembly of co-workers and TD Canada Trust officials, all there to surprise her and celebrate her selection as a recipient of TD Canada Trust’s 2012 Vision in Action Award of Distinction. There was lots of excitement, complete with party streamers and a giant congratulatory cake at this in-branch celebration. For being selected as one of TD Canada Trust’s 2012 Vision in Action Award of Distinction recipients, Maria will be attend TD’s 2013 annual general meeting in Ottawa in early April where she and other award recipients will be honoured at a gala evening event.

Church as well as their chaperones. Last Friday night, the Stittsville United Church and Bracebridge United Church youth groups attended a dinner and pool party at the home of Beth and Phil Sweetnam. Last Saturday, the Stittsville United Church youth group and their guests enjoyed skating on the Rideau Canal and also viewing the Winterlude ice sculptures. They also saw an IMAX show at the Museum of Civilization. A highlight of this Worshiplude weekend was a Saturday night worship service at the Dominion-Chalmers United Church in Ottawa which all of the young people involved – both the visitors and their hosts – attended. At this service, they were addressed by the Moderator of the United Church of Canada, the Very Rev. Gary Paterson, whose sermon was entitled “Under the Shelter of Your Wings,” a theme drawn from Psalm 61. The youth also appreciated all of the musical activities that were part of this special service. Before leaving last Sunday morning, the Stittsville and Bracebridge youth groups attended the Stittsville United Church’s morning service. Afterwards, they prepared a “Youth Brunch” for the whole congregation.

EMC news - It started out as a local Stittsville event, founded by real estate agent and cancer survivor Helene Hutchings. This year, in only its third year, this program to donate hair for wigs for cancer patients and raising funds for cancer research is going citywide as “Hair Donation Ottawa.” And it is now going to be centred at the Algonquin College Hair Stylist Salon where stylists will be on hand to wash, cut and style those who donated six-plus inches of hair or who have their heads or beards shaved for the cause. These stylists will be from various Ottawa area salons as well as from the Algonquin College Hair Stylist program, all volunteering their time for this event. This third annual event will be collecting pony tails to create wigs for cancer patients and will also be raising funds for cancer research at The Ottawa Hospital and for the Angel Hair for Kids Foundation. It will all be happening on Sunday, April 21 from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. This event has raised a total of over $5,000 in the previous two years, with over 700 inch-

es of hair donated to Angel hair for Kids. The proceeds raised by pledges are split between the Centre for Innovative Cancer Research at The Ottawa Hospital and the angel Hair for Kids Foundation. The Centre for Innovative Cancer Research opened in 2011 as a new $15.8 million laboratory that is uniquely designed to accelerate the development and testing of new cancer therapies. The Angel Hair for Kids Foundation is a Canadian non-profit program that provides wigs to financially disadvantaged children who have lost their hair due to medical treatments. This “Hair Donation Ottawa” cancer fundraiser is open to anyone willing to donate six-plus inches of hair or shave their head for charity or sponsor someone who is doing one of these. You can register to donate by calling 613-831-6747 or emailing Helene-Hutchings@ ColdwellBanker.ca. You can also download a pledge form pledging a certain dollar amount per inch that you donate at www.HairDonationOttawa.com.

Jock River needs friends or else John Curry

john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - The Jock River needs more friends. That’s the bottom line or else the Friends of the Jock River (FJR), a charitable nonprofit organization established in 1996 to provide leadership in improving the health of the Jock River watershed ecosystems, will be a thing of the past. Already, in 2012, the organization went into a dormant state, with two provisional caretaker executive members looking after FJR affairs. But this time of dormancy has run its course and an annual general meeting has been called for Thursday, Feb. 21. If a minimum slate of key executives, namely a president, a treasurer and a secretary, are not able to be put in place at this meeting, then the organization will simply have to cease to exist. In 2012, most of the FJR executive, who had been serving virtually from the organization’s beginning in 1996, were suffering from volunteer burnout and believed that it was time to pass on the torch to others willing to advocate

for the Jock River and its health. But no new executive was able to be elected at the 2012 annual general meeting and so it was dormancy for the FJR pending another try at forming a new executive this year. There is a nominating committee that would like to hear from anyone interested in becoming involved with the FJR and assuming a place on the executive. This could include people who are interested in improving the environment of the Jock River or people who are interested in environmental issues such as water quality and quantity as well as fisheries and riparian habitat restoration. But it could also include people who have experience in finance, project management and human resources. These are also fields of expertise needed on any FJR executive going forward. Any new executive members will not be alone. Some of the previous executive members have agreed to serve in an ex-officio advisory capacity to any new executive. The executive meets once a month on a week night. The executive positions have a

minimum one year term. If you might be interested and want to contact the nominating committee, contact information is available on the FJR website at www.jockriver.org. The annual general meeting of the Friends of the Jock River will take place on Thursday, Feb. 21 at 7 p.m. at the Barrhaven Loblaws on Greenbank Road near Strandherd Drive in Barrhaven. The Friends of the Jock River (FJR) has a long record of activity since its formation in 1996. The FJR has planted over 15,000 trees along the Jock River and its tributaries including in the area of the Twin Elm bridge and at the Richmond Conservation Area. The FJR has erected one kilometer of fencing to keep cattle out of the Jock River while also providing a well and pump for the cattle’s drinking needs. The FJR has participated in various planning matters and issues including the Munster forcemain sewer, the Jock River subwatershed studies, the Richmond Village plan, the Riverbend Golf Club rezoning and subdivision ap-

plication, and zoning and site plan approvals for various quarries in the Stittsville area including the Cavanagh Construction Beagle Club Quarry, the Cavanagh Construction Henderson Quarry and the R.W. Tomlinson Stittsville Quarry. The FJR has also submitted comments on requests for permits to take water from the Jock River watershed including request from the Riverbend Golf Club, the Glen Mar Golf and Country Club, the Dwyer Hill RV Resort and Campground and Courtyard Developments (Hyde Park in Richmond). The FJR has participated on the Richmond Conservation Area Community Advisory Team and organized river clean-ups in Richmond for five years and in the Greenbank/Jockvale Road area for over five years. The FJR initiated a request asking the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority to remove the Heart’s Desire weir on the Jock River. The FJR provided a car shuttle service for several years for the Upper Jock River Canoe Race and conducted a photographic contest to pro-

mote the Jock River. The FJR conducted annual spring canoe excursions into the Richmond Fen wetland. It also planned and installed a wildlife ramp at the Ashton dam on the Jock River. It was the Friends of the Jock River (FJR) which obtained funding from various local government sources for the installation by the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority (RVCA) of a permanent water gauge on the Jock River at the Franktown Road west of Richmond. The FJR conducted a multiyear water sampling program in support of the RVCA’s Jock River watershed plan in 2001 and also provided comments on the drafts of this plan. The FJR assembled volunteers to survey stretches of the Jock River and its King’s Creek tributary following the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources Macro Stream Assessment Protocol. The FJR participated in a project in which walleye in the Jock River were implanted with radio transmitters and were tracked to determine migration patterns. The FJR has, over the years, monitored wetlands

in the Jock River watershed and has reported destructive events to the Ontario Ministry of the Environment. The FJR has also requested municipal government to provide signage for the river at various Jock River bridges. In 2004, the Friends of the Jock River received the Outstanding Achievement In Natural History Conservation Award from the Ottawa Field Naturalists Club. In 2006, the FJR received an Award for Excellence in Environmental Conservation (group) from the National Capital Region Wildlife Festival. In 2007, the FJR was nominated for Service Club/NonProfit Organization of the Year Award from the Nepean Chamber of Commerce. The Jock River, which empties into the Rideau River near Manotick, has its headwaters in wetland areas in Beckwith township west of Ashton. The river flows through Goulbourn township, starting in Ashton and going near Munster before passing through the village of Richmond. It then flows through Nepean and through Barrhaven before emptying into the Rideau River.

Limit councillors’ access to public purse

A

policy to limit councillors’ ability to dole out money to community groups is a welcome proposal coming out of the mayor’s office. Currently, it’s just an idea being floated around the council table by Mayor Jim Watson, but a policy is expected to be introduced sometime in March. At least one city councillor is already warning community groups in his ward that

the policy would limit their ability to donate money from their office budget to support community events. On the face of it, the policy sounds negative, resulting in less funding for the dozens of grassroots organizations that provide unpaid support services throughout the city. But limiting a councillor’s spending powers doesn’t necessarily mean the money won’t be spent where it’s needed. Just who’s doing the

spending – as it stands, a councillor can take a chunk of money from their office budget – funds provided by taxpayers – to arbitrarily dole out cash to groups of their choosing. Typical donations include things like membership to the local legion branch, sponsorship of a winter carnival, donations to food banks and the purchase of gift certificates as prizes for community events. Don’t get us wrong. We are in no way suggesting

that a donation to the local food bank is a bad idea; we are simply questioning the optics of how the money is spent and how the decision is made. Giving councillors arbitrary access to the public purse offers the opportunity for inequalities in support given to groups and associations from ward to ward. One councillor may choose to spend $10,000 while another may limit their donations to less than $2,000.

We aren’t questioning the morals or ethics of individual councillors, simply the equity of an arbitrary system that invites unfair distribution of funds and the use of public money to in effect campaign for re-election. True, part of a councillor’s role is to promote events and showcase communities, but, as Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley suggests, “I don’t believe we should be handling the money for the events.� Hubley said he rarely gives donations from his office budget because he doesn’t want to give the wrong impression. We couldn’t agree more

– the obvious impression is that the receiver of the money owes the sender gratitude, which they may choose to repay in the form of support during the next election. Watson’s proposal would be part of a code of conduct that’s being developed to build on the work of the city’s new integrity commissioner, such as the lobbyist registry. We suggest the city create a new mechanism to provide support for community groups, such as giving the responsibility to a department. Council could always allow councillors to highlight events and community groups in need of support.

After Dalton, a culture war? CHARLES GORDON Funny Town

I

t’s going to take a little getting used to not having the premier of Ontario living in our town. There’s a lot of advantages to it, not least of which is having someone at Queen’s Park who knows Ottawa exists. That hasn’t always been the case. It’s a pretty big city, Ottawa, but a bit far from Toronto. The reviews on Dalton McGuinty’s tenure as premier have been mixed. The consensus seems to be that he did quite well, but his last few months didn’t do him credit. In Ottawa we knew him as sort of a clunky guy, not a smooth politician, but a person we could be comfortable with. That might explain how he got elected six times as an MPP, three times as premier. McGuinty’s last election was a minority win, which means the opposition parties are looking forward with some relish to the next election. What kind of an election will that be? Could it be different from what we have seen — mild-mannered affairs in which ideology plays a minimal role and the parties cluster into the centre? What observers now fear is a culture war, of the kind we have seen recently in the United States and, to a lesser extent, in Canadian federal politics. In a culture war, the two sides are bitterly divided. Rather than cluster into the centre, they diverge widely and bitterly. They are divided not only on political issues, but on personal beliefs and patterns of behaviour. The stage is set for it, that’s for sure.

One of the two leading parties is led by a businessman from Fort Erie, with a traditional marriage; the other is led by a community activist from Toronto, who is a lesbian. So there you have it: big city versus small town, man versus woman, old values versus new values, traditional marriage versus same-sex marriage, businessman versus activist, Barrhaven versus the Glebe. People have talked about this kind of divergence in recent federal elections, with the Harper Conservatives, the hockey fans, versus the Ignatieff Liberals, the Chardonnay-sipping intellectuals. Tim Hortons versus Starbucks. The notion of a culture war is supported by the breakdown of the vote: Ignatieff’s main strength was in downtown Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver; Harper won the small towns and the suburbs. So is that what we have to look forward to when Ontario goes to the polls? Probably not. Because we are more complex than that. Our downtown intellectuals like hockey. There are opera fans in small towns, book clubs in Carleton Place. Barrhaven has a Starbucks, Tim Hortons has Wi-Fi, McDonald’s has lattes. We are all moving closer together. We all see basically the same TV and get the same Internet. Isolation is a thing of the past and differences no longer shock us. Even the gay factor is far less of an issue than it might have been 10 years ago. Small town parents have children with gay friends. It’s not a big deal. Certainly you won’t hear anything about it from the opposition party leaders in the next election campaign. Whatever their private views they know that the biggest political risk is in appearing to be intolerant. It’s pretty hard to wage a culture war under those circumstances. It will likely be just another boring old election, fought on the usual issues, which is not that bad a thing.

Stittsville’s Marielle Gauthier honoured Special to the News

EMC news - She is one of only 150 youth in the province to be nominated in the 2012 Ontario Junior Citizen of the Year Awards program. This is a youth recognition awards program promoted and coordinated by the 300-plus members of the Ontario Community Newspapers Association (OCNA) with the corporate support of TD Canada Trust and Direct Energy. Each youth nominated is recognized by receiving a certificate of recognition presented by a representative of the local newspaper, acknowledging that the nominee is a youth who has gone above and beyond what is expected of youth aged 6 to 17. It was at the TD Canada Trust branch at the corner of Stittsville Main Street and Carp Road in Stittsville last Friday afternoon where 17 year old Marielle Gauthier of Stittsville received her certificate of recognition for being nominated for the award in a brief ceremony which included John Curry, editor of the Stittsville News EMC, TD Canada Trust branch manager Maria Harrington and city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri. At the ceremony, Mr. Curry outlined Marielle’s accomplishments and activities which had brought about her nomination for the provincial award. These included playing hockey, obtaining a groomer’s license to work with race horses, modeling, playing the violin, establishing a blog “Millie Tarry” to help children who have a parent stationed overseas, winning a Stittsville youth connexion poetry contest and developing a video dealing with the proposed expansion of the Carp Road landfill. Councillor Qadri congratulated Marielle for being such an outstanding young person. A Stittsville resident who

is a grade 12 student at Sacred Heart High School, Marielle Gauthier plays midget hockey with a Kanata team. At her former home in London, Ontario, she had played for her school hockey team but when she arrived at Ecole Franco Ouest in 2008, the school did not have a girls hockey team for her age group at the time. She petitioned for such a team and it was established and still exists today, even though Marielle herself now attends Sacred Heart. When Marielle moved to Stittsville, she submitted an essay to the Rideau Carleton Raceway because of her love of horses. As a result, she was one of eight youth awarded a placement to a summer program at the Raceway. Through this, she met Lesley Newland, a horse trainer and owner of Robingreen Horse Farm in Dunrobin. Marielle began volunteering to help out at the farm. She has accumulated over 615 hours of community service working with the harness-racing horses at this farm and even volunteering at the Rideau Carleton Raceway. Marielle has spent every Saturday morning at the Robingreen Horse Farm since the fall of 2008, working there on a voluntary and unpaid basis to help in looking after the horses there. She has even received her Province of Ontario Grooming License, an unusual happening for those her age. Marielle has done some modeling work with Models International Management in Ottawa, taking part in a number of photo shoots. It was a spur of the moment decision by Marielle to try modeling. She is an accomplished violinist, having received her Royal Conservator of Music Award for violin in 2010. She has joined the Sacred Heart High School’s string ensemble where she is playing first violin. But she has also helped

The Ontario Junior Citizen of the Year Award program is coordinated by the Ontario Community Newspapers Association thanks to the corporate sponsorship of TD Canada Trust and Direct Energy. others in the ensemble with mastering their instruments. She played her violin at the grand opening of the new National Bank of Canada branch on Hazeldean Road in Stittsville last year. She was the first winner of the branch’s $500 “Student of the Month” bursary. When she was 12 in 2007, Marielle created her own blog called “Millie Tarry” to help children cope with a parent being overseas and deployed in a war situation. The blog features a doll Millie Tarry who travels to military families and then shares its stories on the blog. The blog can be found at http://www.millietarry.blogspot.com/ As a student, she has travelled to Vimy Ridge, another

indication of her support for and interest in the Canadian military. Indeed, her father, a member of the Canadian Forces army reserve, volunteered to go to Afghanistan with the Canadian Forces as a reservist to train the Afghan police, being away from the family in 2005-2006. In 2010, Marielle’s poem won in the high school category in a poetry contest sponsored by Stittsville’s youth connexion program in association with the annual “Artists & Authors in the Park” event hosted by the Stittsville Village Association. Due to the environmental concerns in the community about the proposed expansion of the Carp Road landfill, Marielle made a video titled

“It’s not easy being green…” that can be seen on YouTube and which won the grand prize for the National Capital Region. And the motivation for all of this community volunteerism and activism? Well, this is explained in a section of her Junior Citizen nomination form which reads as follows: “…Marielle’s inspiration stems from a desire to fix issues she sees as needing help. She does not wait for an adult to do it. She steps right into the role of a doer. Her values are humanitarian and environmental at heart. She is also aware of the societal benefits of her decision to volunteer. It is a way for her to meet new people, spend time with friends and interact with

community organizations. Her societal and personal motivations contribute almost equally to her decision to volunteer.” The 150 nominations received for the 2012 Ontario Junior Citizen of the Year Awards resulted in the selection of 12 recipients of the award. A panel of judges made the decisions, going through all 150 nominations before deciding on the 12 award recipients. These recipients live across the province, ranging from Mississauga to Orleans to Sarnia to Niagara Falls. The 12 awards will be presented at a ceremony officiated by the Hon. David C. Onley, Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, in early March in Toronto.

Additional discounts of 5% (care package) or 15% (enhanced care package) on professional services, food, retail items, and prescription medications.

Limits proposed for councillor donations Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - City councillors have begun to warn community groups that their ability to donate money from their office budgets to community events may soon be limited. There is no firm proposal yet, but councillors say Mayor Jim Watson is proposing a cap on how much of their office budget councillors are allowed to donate to community causes, as well as limits on how involved municipal elected officials can be in the

financial side of community events. Donations and sponsorships are allowed under the current rules and the online office expense disclosure forms include a section for councillors to list the amount of donations they doled out. Typical donations include things like membership to the local legion branch, sponsorship of a winter carnival, donations to food banks and the purchase of gift certificates as prizes for community events. “Obviously that’s an area of concern to councillors be-

cause that’s part of our role – to promote events and showcase our communities,” said Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley. “That said, there are examples, shall we say, where someone may get the wrong perception of what’s going on … I don’t believe we should be handling all the money for the events.” Hubley rarely gives donations from his office budget, he said, because he doesn’t want his residents to “get the wrong impression” of the way he spends their tax dollars on their behalf.

ST! A F ING L L SE E R SA T O L

The policy would be part of a code of conduct that’s being developed to build on the work of the city’s new integrity commissioner; efforts that include the lobbyist registry. The proposal would put more parameters around how that office budget could be spent. Each councillor received $234,000 in 2012 to spend on office supplies and staffing, as well as community events, donations and sponsorships. “As of right now, there is no definition as to how our office money should be spent,” said Rideau-Goulbourn Coun.

MOVE IN THIS SPRING!

Scott Moffatt. Bob Brocklebank of the Federation of Citizens Associations said anything to make council more transparent is a good thing, but a lack of flexibility in this case could be detrimental to community involvement. The availability and use of councillors’ office-budget funds varies widely across the different wards, but that money is often used to rent space for community events and more importantly, community meetings, Brocklebank said. Allowing flexibility in how councillors spend their allotment means there are more funds available to encourage community engagement, Brocklebank said, adding he doesn’t think councillors should be proud if they make a point of avoiding donations. “It is on the public consultation side that I am concerned about the limitations that this might bring,” Brocklebank said. “Sometimes you go out and fix problems that don’t exist.” Changing a practice that residents support and no one is complaining about doesn’t make much sense, Moffatt said. He keeps his own “mental cap” on spending; he won’t give out more than $10,000 of his office budget per year to

community causes. Supporting community causes with tax dollars collected from citizens makes sense, Moffatt said. The councillor said he tends not to organize or run community events because there is a large number of active groups in his ward. Instead, he contributes money to rent space or back community-led events in other ways. “I like to be able to support them so that they can do community-oriented events that build community spirit and help bring the community together,” he said. “That’s what our job is … to support our communities and make our communities grow.” Watson’s office budget is $778,000, but Hubley said the mayor’s budget wasn’t proposed to be subject to the same rules. That concerned the Kanata South councillor, who said any policy should apply equally to all members of council, including the mayor. Watson’s press secretary, Ryan Kennery, said in an email it would be premature for the mayor to discuss the proposal. The policy proposal is expected to be announced in March, Kennery said.

Cookies for Cancer Sale John Curry

john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - There were chocolate chip cookies. Peanut butter cookies. Oatmeal cranberry cookies. Heart shaped cookies adorned with pink frosting. Ginger snaps. French almond macaroons. Shortbreads with raspberry filler and almond icing. And, for good measure, even some chocolate

cupcakes and some squares – which did not qualify as cookies but could easily meet any “delicious” taste test. These were all part of the first annual Cookies for Cancer Sale which was held last Monday, Feb. 4 at the Stittsville Revera Retirement Community on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville. All proceeds from the sale are going to the Cancer Society.

The cookies were all laid out on a long table in the facility’s lounge area – a table adorned with two floating bouquets of coloured balloons. The batches of cookies sold for amounts ranging from $2 to $8. In the end, a total of $800 was raised for the Cancer Society. The cookies were provided not only by some of the residents themselves as well as by

staff and tenants in the adjacent Stittsville Villa apartments but also by family members of residents, those from community businesses like Scrumptious Catering (Jeff Robinson) and Team One Homes Coldwell Banker (Frank Fragomeni, Melanie Brennan and Dennis Tarrant) and also Stittsville Retirement Community volunteers, including some student volunteers. Stittsville Retirement Community executive director Lisa Cowan said that this Cookies for Cancer Sale was part of the “Community in Action” program initiated by Revera Inc., owner of the Stittsville Retirement Community and other retirement homes. This program is about recognizing the company-wide commit-

ment to support organizations that share the goal of helping seniors live their lives to the fullest. “Many thanks to all who participated and donated,making this a truly successful event,” Ms. Cowan stated in an email report about the event. This fundraising Cookie Sale for Cancer could have been held at any time in February but the Stittsville Retirement community chose to align the sale with World Cancer Day on Feb. 4. World Cancer Day is held annually on Feb. 4 to raise awareness of cancer and to encourage its prevention, detection and treatment. World Cancer Day was founded by the Union for International Cancer Control to support the goals of the World

Cancer Declaration written in 2008. The goal of World Cancer Day is to significantly reduce death and illness caused by cancer by the year 2020. World Cancer Day 2013 had the dispelling of myths and misconceptions about cancer as its focus. Among these myths are that cancer is a death sentence and that cancer is a disease affecting only those in developed countries. This Cookies for Cancer Sale follows upon a recent successful cake sale at the Stittsville Retirement Community which raised about $1,500 for the Alzheimer’s Society. The Stittsville Retirement Community will be continuing its fundraising in April when it will hold a pie sale to raise funds for the Parkinson’s Society.

Ottawa Sens Alumni at Richmond arena Special to the News

EMC sports - There were traces of Slap Shot, the 1977 comedy ďŹ lm about a minor league hockey team that resorts to violent play to gain popularity. There was a Hanson brother look-alike, complete with thick glasses taped together. And there was a pseudo ďŹ ght, with two players, including the recently retired Shean Donovan, grappling with each other. But more in evidence than these glimpses of the movie Slap Shot was the skill level of the Ottawa Senators Alumni

as they took on the Richmond Munster Minor Hockey Association (RMMHA) coaches in a fundraising game at the Richmond arena last Saturday afternoon, Feb. 2. The Alumni gave a textbook performance of positional play, of passing, of teamwork – they may have slowed down a step or two from their professional playing days but their skills were eminently on display. And while they may no longer have National Hockey League level speed, they were still Roadrunner fast compared

to the RMMHA coaches, who really had to push themselves to try to keep up. The Alumni ended up winning, if anyone was keeping track of the score (ofďŹ cially, it was 12-4 for the Alumni), but the real winners were the fans who nearly ďŹ lled the stands at the Richmond arena as they got to witness some skillful hockey, some playful hockey and some entertaining hockey, all on view in this game. You even had Stuntman Stu of radio fame, the Senators announcer, suit up and play with the Alumni, an added treat in this game.

You had Alumni skating the full length of the ice with the puck, with the RMMHA coaches unable to take the puck from him. And what about the penalty shot with the net turned around – the Alumni managed to score despite this maneuver. So, right from the opening ceremonial faceoff with the puck being dropped by city of Ottawa Rideau-Goulbourn ward councillor Scott Moffatt and King’s Your Independent Grocer owner Chris King through to the ďŹ nal whistle and then beyond with an autograph session, the Ottawa

Senators Alumni visit to the Richmond arena was not only a fun and memorable event but also a successful fundraiser for the RMMHA thanks to the $5 admission fee, a silent auction and the generosity of the Alumni who donated their $1,500 share of the proceeds back to the RMMHA. The Alumni lineup for this game included Shean Donovan, an Ottawa 67’s graduate who ďŹ nished out his National Hockey League career with the Ottawa Senators; Shawn Rivers of the Tampa Bay Lighting; Fred Barrett of the Minnesota North Stars (yes,

there was such a team); Chris Valentine of the Washington Capitals; Brad Brown of the Minnesota Wild; and goalie Gerry Armstrong, a veteran Alumni presence. The RMMHA coaches lineup for the game was to include goalie Jake Cook, Joe Milroy, Pat Beresford, Randy Smart, Darryl Kinkade, Clayton Foster, David Barkley, Chris Fulcher, Bruce McGuire, Tim Johnson, Shawn Boudreau, Kevin Ryan, John Hale, Chris Taylor and more. And, of course, Hat Trick, the RMMHA’s new mascot, was in attendance, taking in his ďŹ rst Sens Alumni game. Unfortunately, Spartacat, the Sens mascot, could not be at the game.

Foster Family Month

With family day just around the corner, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re reminded of the importance of families and family life. Many of us spend the day enjoying quality me with our families, possibly skang on the canal or hosng a special dinner. At the end of the day, family day marks a me to appreciate the important people in our lives, our children, parents, relaves and friends. This day acts as a reminder of how fortunate we are everyday to have a circle of individuals in which we can surround ourselves. Sadly, this is the not the case for many children and youth in our community, which is why the Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Aid Society of Oawa (CASO) is dedicang the month of February to foster families. We all remember what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like to be a teenager and how hard it can be to simply ďŹ t in. Imagine going through this me without parental support. When matching youth with foster parents, consideraon is always given to qualies such as personality, culture and ethnicity. These familiar traits are important in helping youth feel comfortable, safe and secure in their temporary surroundings. CASO is very fortunate to have many loving and devoted foster families open their hearts and their homes. They provide parental guidance and support youth desperately need. Our foster parents are from all walks of life; they are single or partnered, rered or at home and from diverse backgrounds. These individuals provide a supporng home environment for youth who have been temporarily removed from their home. The care is typically for a short period of me, while CASO work with the natural parent(s) to improve the home condions or an alternate living arrangement is made within the childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own extended family or community. Regardless of the me period, foster parents play a vital role in the life of a youth.

Before I get into other issues, I just want to remind residents of Richmond and beyond that the City is hosting a public meeting on a development application for 6335 Perth Street, which is the land between the Fire Hall and the Home Hardware. This plan calls for 1000 homes phased in with between 50-100 units being built each year. The meeting is to be held at the Richmond Arena at 7:00pm.

Building a Liveable Ottawa - 2031 The Official Plan Review for the City of Ottawa is officially underway. The City’s Official Plan is reviewed every five years. This is a year long process which results in an updated Official Plan that comes into effect in 2014. As the Chair of the Rural Review Steering Committee, I am one of five Councillors on the Official Plan Sponsors Group and I look forward to being heavily involved in crafting this updated document. Residents are encouraged go online to have their say on how their city grows in the future. The City of Ottawa is reaching out to the public on how neighbourhoods, roads, water and sewer services, rural villages and cycling and walking pathways should be planned. Building a Liveable Ottawa 2031 – a city-wide review of land use, transportation and infrastructure policies that feed into the City’s Official Plan, Transportation Plan, Infrastructure Master Plan and the Cycling and Pedestrian Plans – was launched on January 29. JOHN BRUMMELL/METROLAND

The focus of the project and public engagement goes beyond a visioning exercise. It deals directly with proposed solutions to 12 current planning issues, which are profiled on ottawa.ca/liveableottawa. The site also features a summary of each issue and each proposal, a video, and feedback mechanisms, including a survey that is available until March 1. Residents are urged to review the information before providing their survey responses. The rural component to this review specifically speaks to no expansion of village boundaries but also at where to direct rural growth. Richmond, Manotick and Greely are projected to see the majority of the growth in the coming years. However, with the current development applications in Manotick and Richmond, the projections match the planning targets so this will not create new pressure on either village.

When you upgrade your insulation in your attic to R50 blown insulation, you can save up to 27% on your heating and cooling bill. With new government minimums, R50 (approx 18” of blown insulation) is now code. Most newer builds have between R34-R40, with some older homes having as little as R20 in the attic. Other benefits to upgrading your attic insulation are creating greater home comfort and helping to raise the resale value of your home.

William Kemp passed away in 1840 and left his property to his wife Margaret and their seven children. Margaret was an entrepreneur and soon began to supply the needs of travellers who passed their home on their way to and from Bytown. Her son John began to help her and the place became locally well-known as Kempâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tavern. During the 1860â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s there was a prevalence of fear over Fenian raids. Kempâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tavern served as the headquarters for the local militia called the Carleton Blazers and uniforms and arms were supplied from there. As Kempâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tavern flourished, they built a beautiful stone house to expand the business. The house still stands on the property today and is now an Italian restaurant called Cabottoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. *Information regarding the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Did you knowâ&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;? story was taken from the book Stittsville a Sense of Place by Barbara Bottriell, 1998

As your Councillor, I always welcome your keen input and ideas on how we can sustain and improve Stittsville. You can always reach my office by emailing shad.qadri@ottawa.ca or by dialling 613-580-2476.

EMC sports - It was a game that every hockey player - young, professional or oldtimer dreams of – an outburst of scoring that leads the team to a convincing victory. It happens in road hockey; it happens in the National Hockey League (NHL) (remember Darryl Sittler’s NHL record six goals and four assists for ten points in a game in 1976 or Rocket Richard’s legendary scoring feats like scoring five goals in a Stanley Cup playoff victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1944). And it happens in the Stittsville Town Hockey League. Just ask Mike Scerbo.

On Thursday, Jan. 24, playing for the Cavanagh Construction (Grey Team) against Team White (Molson’s) in Stittsville Town Hockey League action at the Johnny Leroux Stittsville Community Arena, Mike had an amazing 13 point game – 5 goals and 8 assists – in his team’s 16-9 victory. Mike, who is 26 years old and from Kanata, wears sweater number 15 and also the “C” for the Cavanagh Construction team. His 13 point outburst in this game will go down in Stittsville Town Hockey League history as one of its legendary achievements. And whether it is in a game of road hockey, of minor hockey, of NHL hockey or of oldtimers hockey, scoring 13 points in one game is awesome.

Stained glass window photos on display John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - It’s like being in 12 churches at the same time. You can stand there looking at the Art Space Wall at the Stittsville branch of the Ottawa Public Library and see there before you a selection of photographs of stained glass windows from 12 Goulbourn area churches – 23 colour photos in all. It is an exhibit called “The Art of Stained Glass” presented by the Goulbourn Township Historical Society which shows a selection of photographs of stained glass windows in local churches, all published in the Society’s recently released book “Goulbourn Stained Glass.” The photos, taken by either John Bottriell, John Brummell or Mike Bryan, are of stained glass windows in 12 churches or former churches in the Goulbourn communities of Ashton, Dwyer Hill, Munster, Richmond and Stittsville. The goal of this exhibit at the Art Space Wall at the Stittsville library is, in the words of the Historical Society, “simply to present the beauty of stained glass and to reveal the treasures we have in our own backyard.” These artistic treasurers are usually only viewed by members of the congregations of the churches in which they are located. This exhibit of-

fers the opportunity for everyone in the community to see via photographs the beauty of many of these stained glass windows while also learning a little about the ancient art of stained glass. Displayed on a total of seven white boards on the wall, the photographs show some of the stained glass windows in St. Thomas Anglican Church, St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church and Stittsville United Church, all in Stittsville; St. Paul’s United Church, St. John’s Anglican Church and St. Philip Catholic Church, all in Richmond; Munster United Church and the former St. Stephen’s Anglican Church (now the Munster branch of the Ottawa Public Library) in Munster; Christ Church Ashton, Ashton United Church and the former Melville Presbyterian Church (now a private residence) in Ashton; and St. Clare’s Catholic Church at Dwyer Hill. In the display case associated with the Art Space Wall at the Stittsville library, the Historical Society has displayed a copy of the book “Goulbourn Stained Glass” as well as a couple of books dealing with stained glass. There is also an explanation of the art of stained glass windows written by S. Bernard Shaw who also did the research and writing for the book “Goulbourn Stained Glass.”

The book “Goulbourn Stained Glass” which was published by the Historical Society was done not only

to record the existing stained glass windows in Goulbourn church buildings but also to tell the stories of the families

to whom these stained glass windows are dedicated. This exhibit “The Art of Stained Glass” will be on

display at the Art Space Wall at the Stittsville library on Stittsville Main Street for the month of February.

‘Share the Love’ at CocoMutts John Curry

john.curry@metroland.com

JOHN CURRY/METROLAND

Stephanie Olsheskie-Knox holds Elvis, a six year old Brussels Griffon who has just received a grooming at CocoMutts at the Stittsville Corners shopping area in Stittsville, as together they urge people to donate to the “Share the Love” fundraiser for the Hopeful Hearts Dog Rescue which is now underway at the store.

EMC news - February, with Valentines Day, is love month. And nowhere is love being more embraced than at CocoMutts, the pet supply and pet care shop in Stittsville. Right now, CocoMutts has a “Love Tree” and a “Love Meter,” all part of the “Share the Love” fundraiser that it is hosting to raise funds for Hopeful Hearts Dog Rescue. This fundraiser, which began last Friday, Feb. 1, runs through until Saturday, Feb. 16. The store has a big pink-coloured tree in its front window, its “Love Tree.” For a small donation to the fundraiser, donors will receive a heart on which they can write a pet’s name and then hang the heart on the “Love Tree.”

Pet owners in the Stittsville area are urged to drop in and share the love that they have for their pets by helping other pets that are in need in this way. The goal is to decorate the “Love Tree” with as many hearts as possible while hopefully raising at least $500 for Hopeful Hearts Dog Rescue. A tally of how much is being raised is being kept on a “Love Meter” thermometer which has been set up on a wall in the shop. CocoMutts is hopeful that this “Share the Love” fundraiser can make a difference for the dogs being cared for by Hopeful Hearts Dog Rescue, dogs that are in need of permanent, loving homes. This is a non-profit Ottawaarea dog rescue organization established in 2007 that tries to find foster and permanent homes for dogs that have been

abandoned. Not only is it labour intensive to find such foster and permanent homes for these dogs but it also costs Hopeful Hearts Dog Rescue to look after the dogs while the search for a home is underway. Any pet owner knows the expenses involved in taking care of a pet and such expenses are multiplied for Hopeful Hearts Dog Rescue which can be taking care of dozens of animals at any one time. In addition to donating and placing a heart on the “Love Tree,” people can also show their support for Hopeful Hearts Dog Rescue by donating new or gently used dog items. A bin to receive such donations is in place at the CocoMutts shop. This could include toys, food, collars, leashes – you name it, whatever a dog might need. It will all be most welcome and most useful. CocoMutts, which opened a year and a half ago, is located in the Stittsville Corners shopping area (Stittsville Sobeys area) at the corner of Carp Road and Hazeldean Road in Stittsville. It sells pet food and pet supplies and has a pet grooming service. Hopeful Hearts Dog Rescue, a non-profit volunteer run dog rescue service based in Ottawa which was created in 2007, rescues dogs of all sizes, ages and condition. However, its special focus is to find adoptive homes for abandoned senior and special needs dogs. Hopeful Hearts Dog Rescue has no paid staff. Every foster home and volunteer with the organization receives no remuneration for their work with Hopeful Hearts. Hopeful Hearts Dog Rescue guarantees that no dog in its care is ever relegated to live in a kennel environment. All the dogs in its care live inside warm homes with loving foster families. In these foster homes, the dogs received all of the love and attention that they need to help recover from their previous lives or to move on with their new life. Each dog that goes to a permanent home is fully vet checked, spayed or neutered as appropriate and brought up to date on any shots. Dogs are not allowed to be adopted for breeding or outdoor living. If anyone is interested in adopting or fostering a dog from Hopeful Hearts Dog Rescue or want to learn more about the organization, check out the website www.hopefulhearts.ca.

Spirited fun at St. Philip John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - Hawaii in February. Everybody’s dream. And so what better way to cap off a spirit week at St. Philip Catholic School in Richmond than to have an afternoon of spirit activities, topped off with a family Luau Night in the evening. A luau is a traditional Hawaiian party including music and the hula, that renowned Hawaiian dance. In the afternoon spirit activities, held last Friday, Feb. 1, teams of students rotated from classroom to classroom where they participated in special fun activities. Each classroom was, you could say, like one of the Hawaiian islands, with the school gymnasium with its four activities playing the role of the island of Hawaii or The Big Island as it is known, being the largest of the Hawaiian islands. In the gymnasium, teams of students got to shake a parachute to move around balls on its surface. There was also a floor hockey game played not with sticks but with pool noodles. Another activity was for team members to try their luck with a hula hoop, twirling the plastic hoop around their waist or around an arm. A fad which swept North American society in the 1950’s, hula hooping still remains a fun activity today.

And the gymnasium also had an area where teams enjoyed a snack break, complete with hot chocolate. In the various classrooms, fun activities and games were set up, with senior students running them for the teams. So there was playing the game of Pictionary, with two teams squaring off to try to guess what was being drawn before the other team did. There was a game of indoor volleyball, played not with a ball but with a balloon which floated over a net separating the two competing teams which batted the balloon back and forth. There was a hideand-go-seek game activity where participants had to find a rubber chicken that was hidden in the room. There was another classroom where students had a chance to draw or build a tall structure using blocks. There was yet another classroom where students hid their eyes and then tried to guess which fellow student touched their upraised thumb. And there were even more activities, each in a classroom. All in all, it was a lot of fun for the students as they rotated through the various classrooms and activities in their teams. And a number of students added to the atmosphere as they were wearing Hawaiian themed items – a grass skirt which are a symbol of hula dancing or a lei which is wreath of flowers worn around the neck, a traditional and well known Hawaiian item.

Minor Atom Rams win in triple OT

on-two hockey, followed by a shootout. This was the first time that the Rams had played in this format of overtime but the team adapted well to the situation. Both teams had several good scoring chances during the four-on-four and threeon-three overtime periods but solid goaltending at both ends and strong defensive play by the Rams kept the game tied. This meant going to two-ontwo hockey. The resulting wide open ice surface resulted in end-to-end action, with both goalies seeing plenty of rubber. By this time, the arena was packed, with excited fans watching the game around the entire viewing area at the arena. The Rams got into penalty trouble, allowing Cambridge to add an extra player for a three-on-two power play. Strong defensive play plus some heroic saves by Rams goalie Carter Green saw the Rams kill off this penalty. The two-on-two play continued with neither team giving up a goal. With nearly ten minutes gone in this triple overtime session, the Rams got a threeon-two power play of their own. The Rams passed the puck around, keeping it away from the Hawks. Then Rams

EMC sports It took an action packed, thrilling overtime but the Stittsville Minor Atom Rams are champions of the North York Challenge. And it wasn’t just one overtime period – it was a triple overtime marathon that saw the teams reduced to playing a two-on-two format. The Stittsville Minor Atom Rams had advanced to the championship game on Sunday, Feb. 3 after going undefeated in round robin and semi-final action. But they knew that it would be a tough final game because their opposition, the Cambridge Hawks, had also swept their own division to reach the finals and were rumoured to be a team that seldom lost. The Rams did not get off to the best start in the game, perhaps due to a lengthy delay in the starting time for the game. Going into the third period, the Rams were down 2-1 but a goal late in the third period tied the game up at 22. This is how the regulation time ended. The overtime format for this North York Challenge tournament is to play four minutes of four-on-four hockey, followed by four minutes of three-on-three hockey. If the game was still deadlocked, then it was 20 minutes of two-

the Richmond Hill Stars. On Saturday, Feb. 2, the Rams played two games, facing the Ted Reeve Thunder in the morning and then facing off against the Toronto Royals in the afternoon. The Rams chalked up 82 and 11-1 victories in these games, giving them three wins and placing first in their round robin division and advancing to Sunday morning’s semi-final game. In this semifinal, the Rams defeated their

EMC - Knoxdale-Merivale Coun. Keith Egli is going to become the chair of city council’s transportation committee. Egli is set to take the lead on transportation issues after Mayor Jim Watson indicated his preferences to shuffle councillors’ responsibilities in a Jan. 29 memo to council – the result of a mid-term governance review. Egli will replace Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson, who has served as transportation committee chairwoman for the first two years of council’s term. “I think it’s a good fit at the end of the day for everybody,” Egli said. Egli said it will be a big year for transportation issues because the city is updating its transportation master plan.

His view is that the city needs to accommodate the needs of all road users. While providing access to transit and cycling facilities is important, there will always be areas of the city where a private vehicle is required in order to get around, he said. Egli likened the shuffle to a chess board. Since there is a need for Gloucester-South Nepean Coun. Steve Desroches to take on a heavier workload as deputy mayor (and as a father to new twins), his position as chairman of the Ottawa Community Housing board was up for grabs. Watson suggested it might be a good fit for Wilkinson, who has worked extensively on community housing issues in the past. That also freed up the transportation committee chair, giving another rookie councillor a chance to take on a leadership role. “It’s a bit of succession planning

for the next term of council,” Wilkinson said. “(The mayor) wanted an opportunity for the newer councillors to be more involved.” The veteran councillor didn’t request to step down from her role as transportation committee chairwoman, which has seen her become very active in transportation initiatives such as the recently completed Downtown Moves study. She agreed to vacate the position, but only if she could remain a member of the committee. Despite suggesting in the past that this would be her last term on council, Wilkinson said she’s still considering whether to run again in 2014. Her fellow Kanata councillor, Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley, will step into the role of vice chairman of the transportation committee, a position previously held by Orléans Coun. Bob Monette. Monette will instead sit as a “councillor at large” on

councillor on the commission was Tierney. The governance report also suggests the city should hire a temporary full-time worker to manage the schedules of the two deputy mayors: Desroches and West-Carleton Coun. Eli El-Chantiry. The report also recommends a review or change to governance models for some of the arm’s-lengths bodies the city oversees, including the Cumberland Heritage Village Museum, the Nepean Museum and Fairfields historic site, the Ottawa Municipal Campground and Pine View Municipal Golf Course. It also proposes increasing the salaries of councillors and the mayor, which have been frozen since the year 2010. The clerk’s office didn’t directly consult council members on the process because council members said they were uncomfortable with setting their own salaries, so the clerk’s office is recommending the same annual cost-of-living adjustments that city managers receive.

Mark Taylor was the only first-time councillor appointed as a committee chairman at the beginning of council’s term and he will continue as chairman of the community and protective services committee. Egli will no longer sit on the environment committee, but he is adding the board of health to his roster. He and Stittsville Coun. Shad Qadri will replace Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder and River Coun. Maria McRae on that board. Another first-term councillor, Beacon Hill-Cyrville Coun. Tim Tierney was added to two committees: community and protective services (replacing Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs) and the planning committee (replacing Taylor). Hobbs will move to the transit commission, where she will boost its urban representation; previously, the only non-suburban and non-rural

EMC sports - The Stittsville Major Atom Competitive B Rams won the 2013 North York Challenge tournament this past weekend, Feb. 1 to Feb. 3. The Rams went undefeated through the robin robin portion of the tournament, including an opening game 4-3 shootout win against the Port Credit Storm. After a hard-fought 1-0 win in semi-final action against the North York Knights, the Rams once again faced the Port Credit Storm in the championship game. The Rams started out strongly, scoring three goals in the first period and going on to win this championship game by a 4-2 score. This was the second tournament win of the season for the Stittsville Major Atom Rams. The Rams will compete in their final tournament of the season in Lake Placid, N.Y. in March.

West Ottawa Soccer Club AGM Royals lose 5-2 Special to the News

EMC sports - Sacred Heart High School in Stittsville was the site of the annual general meeting of the West Ottawa Soccer Club (WOSC) on Monday evening, Jan. 28. WOSC president Brian Mason kicked off the meeting by telling about the addition of the Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inaugural CEO Bjorn Osieck and also about the reconstruction of the Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dome and office facilities on Richardson Side Road which had been destroyed in a 2011 fire. The facility reopened last October. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To see how far we as a club have come in recover-

ing from the near catastrophic loss of our home in 2011 has been truly inspiring,â&#x20AC;? Mr. Mason said. A presentation of Club program highlights and statistics demonstrated the Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s continued commitment to the principle of long term player development at all levels. The WOSC finished its fiscal year ending Sept. 2012 with a surplus from operations. These funds are being added to the Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reserve funds which are being held for future opportunities including potential facility development partnerships and also to provide a safeguard against future 0207 R0011904950

unforeseen challenges. New WOSC CEO Bjorn Osieck, who has joined the Club after working as executive director of BC Soccer, told the gathering that team work will be vital in moving the WOSC to the next level. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As the Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s CEO, I really see myself as the Community Engagement Officer,â&#x20AC;? he said, stressing that with the help of Club members, a vision for the club will be able to be formulated that will make the Club the â&#x20AC;&#x153;obvious choice for soccer lovers in our region.â&#x20AC;? Four positions on the Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s executive were filled at the meeting. Steve Loomes was elected as the Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new vice-president. Sam Sgabellone was acclaimed to return

as treasurer while Peter Kuciak and Steve Rosettani were elected as directors-at-large. The West Ottawa Soccer Club (WOSC) was created in 2010 through the amalgamation of the Kanata, Goulbourn and West Carleton soccer organizations. It is now the largest soccer club in the Ottawa area and the second largest club in Canada. The WOSC offers a full suite of soccer programs for players of all ages including adults. Player development programs are also offered for all levels of ability. The WOSC is governed by a volunteer board of directors and relies on a network of volunteers to deliver its programs. The Club is managed by staff led by CEO Bjorn Osieck.

Munster winter carnival annual poster contest Special to the News EMC news - The Munster winter carnival’s annual poster contest becomes an art show when the art is displayed on the walls of the Munster Elementary School gymnasium. This year’s posters featured posters with the Madagascar 3 Afro Circus theme – some with various animals, some with carnival activities, some with cannons, some showing the Munster rink, some showing rainbow colours, some enhanced with mixed media applications. All in all, poster art at its best. Judges Judith Cox, a local artist, John Curry, editor of the Stittsville News EMC and Wally Staff, a retired principal subbing for Munster Elementary School principal Iain Slingerland, had a difficult time selecting the three winners in the three age categories because of the overall excellence of the entries. This year’s 40th annual Munster winter carnival featured a Madagascar 3 Afro Circus theme as evidenced by the posters. “Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted” is a 2012 3D computer-animated comedy film where zoo animals want to get home to New York. In Europe they are being relentlessly pursued by the fanatical Monaco-based French Animal Control officer Captain Chantel DuBois. The zoo animals purchase a failing travelling circus and together with the staff they revitalize the business. “Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted” premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in May, 2012. The film earned over $700 million worldwide, making it the ninth highest grossing animated film in history.

Meeting about Richmond development Special to the News

Homes was a contentious issue in the village a couple of years ago. Now a proposal to develop part of these lands is coming forward. The proposed plan of development will be the focus of a public meeting that is be-

ing held on Wednesday, Feb. 13 at 7 p.m. at the Richmond Memorial Community Centre hall in Richmond. The developer this time, Caivan Developments, wants to develop 53 hectares of these lands on the western side of

Richmond. The development would involve about 1,000 homes comprised of both single detached homes and attached townhouse units. It is estimated that approximately 50 to 100 housing units would be built per year as the development gets underway. The development does depend on upgrading the Richmond pumping station and sewer forcemain to handle such growth.

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories The Northcote School smelled differently in the winter time than it did in the summer. That may have a lot to do with the fact Miss Crosby opened the windows in the warm weather. But I thought back then it had more to do with the piles of gum rubbers, wet socks, the wood stove and bagged lunches on the table at the back of the room. After running around the school yard before Miss Crosby rang either the morning or recess bell, there wasn’t one of us whose feet weren’t soaked to the skin. That meant that as soon as we got into the school room, we pulled off our outer foot wear and gum rubbers, galoshes and rubber boots, which were then all laid out around the pot-bellied stove where blocks of wood had been placed to lean the footwear against. It didn’t take long with the fire roaring in the stove for the whole lot of galoshes and boots to smell to high heaven. The girls put on felt slippers, hand-made of course, and the boys just walked around in their socks, which soon smelled as bad as the boots. We girls wouldn’t dream of wearing the same stockings to school two days in a row, but from the smell of the boys’ feet, my older sister Audrey said she doubted their socks had been changed for over a week.

Smells of winter at Northcote School are a big part of fond childhood memories feet. Only a few of the pupils had tin lunch boxes. My little friend Joyce had one with a bright red painted lid, and a hook inside that anchored the little thermos bottle. Of course, Joyce’s family were very rich, I thought. Didn’t they live in a brick house and have a flush toilet? So she could afford a bright tin lunch box. However, most of us took our lunch in brown paper bags, saved after making purchases at Briscoe’s General Store. These bags once held tea, sugar, or rolled oats and were never thrown out. We had a rack in our kitchen that had a spring lever attached to it, and all the bags were neatly folded and kept on this rack which hung by the wood box. Most were just the right size for a school lunch. There was a crudely built table at the back of the school room where all the lunches were kept. All the bags looked the same and it always amazed me how I never once knew any of us to get our lunches mixed up. It was an unwritten law never to bring a sandwich with onions on it. It wouldn’t take long for the smell to fill the small one-room school house and drown out the stench of the footwear around the stove, which in retrospect might not have been such a bad idea. It didn’t take long to figure out what a lot of the pupils had brought to eat. Head cheese was a staple in the Depression years. Well seasoned with summer savoury and sliced thin, it often

filled sandwiches back then. I hated head cheese with a passion. My distaste was right up there with my hatred for blood pudding. It had more to do with watching Mother make both on the kitchen table than the taste of it that turned my stomach. My very favourite sandwich was one made with bologna. Favourite, but rare. The few slices Mother bought on rare occasions, to me, was the ultimate school lunch. I loved bologna with a passion. There were always home-made cookies, fruit was unheard of. We toted milk in glass jars. It wasn’t hard to tell who had what for their lunch. You could smell the headcheese and the maple cookies long before the paper bags were opened. Miss Crosby bent the rules at lunch time, allowing us to sit where we wanted, while she still kept an eagle eye on all of us from her desk at the front of the room. By the time the school day came to a close at four o’clock, the familiar smell of school books, chalk and erasers was long lost. The room reeked of dried out footwear, wet mitts and socks. When the last of us left the school, Miss Crosby could be seen swinging the storm and inner doors open wide and putting a block of wood against them to hold them open to complete air out the place so that by the time we next came to the Northcote School, the only smell would be from the freshly-started wood fire raging in the old stove in the centre of the room. But like the day before, it wouldn’t take long for the smells of winter to take over.

Main Street Community Services works with special needs children Special to the News

Main Street Community Services in Stittsville provides services for children and youth with special needs and their families. They are

provided in a unique, caring way. But this not-for-profit registered charity would not be able to do what it does were it not for the generosity of the community. That’s

because Main Street Community Services depends heavily on fundraising to carry on its programs and services. Main Street Community Services is located

on the seconfd floor of the former Stittsville Public School (now Frederick Banting Alternate Program school) on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville.

Our lives go on without you, But nothing is the same, We have to hide our heartache, When someone speaks your name. Sad are the hearts that loved you, Silent are the tears that fall, Living our lives without you, is the hardest part of all. You did so many things for us, Your heart was so kind and true, And when we needed someone, We could always count on you. The special years will not return, When we were all together, But with the love within our hearts, You will walk with us forever.

You were a gift sent straight from Heaven, Given to us from God above. We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how much you would teach us, About the meaning of true love... For true love sometimes means letting go, of someone precious and dear. That is what we were forced to do... Although we wanted to keep you here!!! However, this is quite a selfish wish, One we know we should ignore... But we truly do believe That God must have needed you more... Perhaps to be an Angel now, Full of wisdom and love, From the shining stars above. We miss you more than you can know. you will never be replaced... In our hearts and memories forever, Will be your sweet and innocent sleeping face.
