EMC news - It has now been over a month since the Stittsville community was rocked by a double murder and suicide. It was on Monday, Jan. 14 that three people died at a home on Granite Ridge Drive in Stittsville. Two were children, Jon Alexander “Alex” Corchis, age 10, and Kathryn Elizabeth “Katie” Corchis, age 6, both students at Stittsville Public School. Also dying was Alison Constance Easton, 40, the children’s mother. They are all survived by Jon Corchis, the father of the two children and husband of Alison. The funerals for all three were held in Windsor on Monday, Jan. 21 but at the time there was a community de-

sire to hold a vigil of some sort for the family at some time to express the community’s grief and to offer support to the family as a community. It was the advice at the time that such a vigil not be held for several weeks. This candlelight vigil has now been scheduled and it will be held this coming Saturday, Feb. 23 at 7 p.m. in the south parking lot near the new second ice pad at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex on Shea Road in Stittsville. Everyone in the community who wishes is urged to attend this candlelight vigil to show the community’s grief at this tragic incident and to show the community’s support for each other and for this Stittsville family which has suffered this tragedy.

EMC news - Will the Carp Road bridge at highway 417 be expanded or not? The apparent plan was for the bridge to be expanded as part of the improvements being made to highway 417, with a second lane being added in the southbound direction towards Stittsville. It was this bridge expansion that got the ball rolling on future expansion of the Carp Road to four lanes between highway 417 and Hazeldean Road in Stittsville. But now there appears to be some doubt about whether the Carp Road bridge will get an extra lane or not. Stittsville Village Association (SVA) president Phil Sweetnam told those at the SVA executive meeting on Thurs-









day, Feb. 14 that he had heard that the expansion of the bridge had been put off. City of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri now has city staff looking into this rumour. Meanwhile, the city of Ottawa is proceeding on an Environmental Assessment to make the Carp Road from highway 417 to Hazeldean Road four lanes. He said that this Environmental Assessment will take anywhere from six months to a year to complete. “That’s the key piece,” councillor Qadri told the SVA executive. Once the Environmental Assessment is done, then design work can be undertaken, after which actual construction to make the Carp Road from highway 417 to Hazeldean Road into a four lane road would be undertaken.

EMC news - She downhill skies. She water skies. She has ridden horses. She has played wheelchair basketball. She is a track athlete. She has even been on sledge hockey ice. And she has done all this despite being in a wheelchair all her life. Yes, Lauren Farish is amazing. The 16 year old grade 11 student at Sacred Heart Catholic High School began downhill skiing when she was just four years old. This year she has joined the “Black Diamond” non-racing team and skis on both Saturdays and Sundays at Edelweiss in the Gatineau Hills. In fact, next month, she will be going with her Black Diamond teammates on a skiing trip to British Columbia, with the goal to have some fun and enjoy skiing on bigger hills. Over the years Lauren has gradually progressed in her skiing, starting off with what she terms “big fat banana skis” and now having progressed to a more advanced sit ski with a special outrigger apparatus. In past years she has participated with the school’s ski club but now this year, because of her Black Diamond team involvement, she is not taking part with the ski club. In the summer, Lauren water skis, something which she enjoys because it’s fun and she gets to meet new people doing it. She says that she prefers water skiing to snow skiing because the water is softer and warmer than snow. Lauren did play wheelchair basketball for a while and a number of years ago did do horseback riding. With her gym class, she did go skating at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex, with Lauren using a sledge hockey sled on the ice.

Ottawa Valley Tours


Sacred Heart Catholic High School grade 11 student Lauren Farish keeps active - she’s a skier, a track athlete and more. Lauren has participated in the provincial high school track and field meet (Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations or OFSAA) the last two years. She competes in the 800 metres, having placed second in the province last year. She expects to compete again this spring, noting

that her upper body strength allows her to move around the track quickly. However, she does acknowledge that it takes a lot of training to be successful in wheelchair track. A graduate of St. Philip Catholic School in Richmond, Lauren got her driver’s license last spring and gets to drive a

pickup truck that has hand controls. She likes to drive but does not do much in the winter. However, come summer, you will find her behind the wheel a lot more. Her 19 year old brother Bradley is a Sacred Heart graduate who is currently attending Laurentian University in Sudbury. Lauren admits that gym is her favourite school activity, although she also likes cooking class. She says that she enjoys music, particularly that of Carrie Underwood and Hilary Duff. Lauren says that she will probably attend Algonquin College after completing her education at Sacred Heart. She would like to be involved with working with animals or in being an educational assistant in schools. She says that she now has a six month old Black Labrador puppy called “Mia” which was obtained from the Humane Society after being found on the side of a road. Having a dog is nothing new for Lauren as she previously had a dog “Chance” which had to be put down at about the age of ten because of liver failure. “I like to go to movies and shopping with friends,” Lauren says, adding that she will go anywhere to shop although she does like shopping at Bayshore. Lauren, who has had a number of surgeries over the years but has nothing pending right now, is getting a new wheelchair in April, replacing her current one which is about five years old. Since her favourite colour is pink, the spokes on this new wheelchair are going to be pink while the tires will be blue. She expects that she will have this new wheelchair for the next four or five years.

Clive Morris of Stittsville receives Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal John Curry

EMC news - He has been involved at all levels of Royal Canadian Legion activity – local, Zone, District, Provincial and Dominion. And not just briefly but over the course of the past 44 years. It is no wonder that Clive Morris of Stittsville recently has received the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal. The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal, struck to celebrate the 60th anniversary year of Queen Elizabeth’s accession to the throne, is being awarded to Canadians who have made a significant contribution to society. Mr. Morris, who was born in England, served with the Royal Air Force during World War II. Immigrating to Canada in 1956, he settled in Stittsville where he served on the local public school board, chaired the community’s 1967 Centennial Celebrations and then became a charger member of the Stittsville Legion when it was formed in 1969. Over the years, he has occupied most of the executive offices at the Stittsville Legion including that of president. He served as the branch’s secretary for 11 years and is currently in his 24th year as the branch’s By-Laws Chairman. He has traditionally served as MC for the Stittsville Legion’s annual Remembrance Dinner and is renowned for each year at this dinner reciting a poem which he has written dealing with some aspect of Remembrance. Now in his 44th year as a Stittsville Legion member, he has also served for seven years as president of the Legion’s Seniors Club. He is a Life Member of the Royal Canadian Legion and has been awarded the legion’s Meritorious Service Medal and Palm Leaf, the Centennial medal, the Queen’s Silver Jubilee Medal, the Canada 125 Medal, the Queen’s Golden Jubilee Medal and now the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal. He is also a Life Member of the Canadian American Veterans Reunion Association (CAVRA), twice serving as the CAVRA Chairman. He was on CAVRA’s steering committee for 30 years. His involvement with CAVRA saw him award-

At the Zone level, he served on the Zone G5 Council for 31 years including four years as the Zone Commander. At the District level, he has been a member of District Council for 21 years and has completed 18 years as the Chairman of Constitution and Laws for the District Council.

Development for south side of Hazeldean Road

Continued from page 4

Special to the News

EMC news - The south side of Hazeldean Road from Fringewood Drive east to Iber Road in Stittsville may soon see retail and mixed use development. A rezoning of this stretch of property to allow such a development is coming forward. There will be a community meeting held about the rezoning, although no date has yet been set for such a meeting. The proposal involves a number of one-storey retail buildings to be built on the site, along with a couple of two-storey mixed use buildings. “That’s going to be a busy little spot,� Stittsville Village Association (SVA) director in charge of planning matters David Jenkins said about this stretch of Hazeldean Road if it sees such development. He said that the SVA has no problem with the proposed rezoning, given that Hazeldean Road in this location is considered an arterial main street where such a development as that being proposed is appropriate.

EMC news - The euchre night at the Lions Hall in Stittsville on Thursday, Feb. 14 fell right on Valentines Day, so you just knew that red would be much in evidence that evening. And so it was. It was Venita Pilon who won the prize for wearing something red. And a Valentines basket up for grabs was won by Brenda Lewis. We suspect that Garnet Vaughn and Rosemarie Baine were seeing a little bit of red as well as both of them endured skunks that evening. But Garnet could not be that upset because he also won one of the 50/50 draws. Ron Phillips won the other one. A total of nine tables were played at this Valentines euchre, with Ann King placing first.

Bill Watson came in second while Randy Clouthier was third. Jean Howell had the hidden score while Larry Marlatt won the booby prize. Shirley Beardsell won the door prize. Snacks and punch were available throughout the evening. The Lions Club, host of the evening, thank all those who brought a special snack for this Valentines event. The Stittsville District Lions Club hosts a euchre party every Thursday at the Lions Hall on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville, with the doors opening at 7 p.m. and the action getting underway at 7:30 p.m. Everyone is most welcome to attend and enjoy an evening of fun and fellowship playing euchre.


This year, for the first time, the CWL will be presenting a $500 academic award to a graduating student at Sacred Heart. Last October, the CWL organized a White Ribbon Campaign to collect signatures to support legislation at the federal level that protects children, especially from sexual exploitation. A CWL delegation presented the signed white ribbon to Carleton-Mississippi Mills MP Gordon O’Connor at his constituency office in Kanata.

Sometimes a little public consultation is all it takes


he city made the right decision when it backed off a plan to establish a temporary parking lot on Lees Avenue near Springhurst Park. The existing greenspace at 160 Lees Ave. is used by a broad spectrum of residents, from those living in nearby apartment towers to dog owners taking their pets out for a walk to members of local rugby teams, playing a key recreational role in the

surrounding community. But that role has come under threat in recent months. As part of planning work associated with the construction of the city’s light rail line, the site was identified as both a construction staging area for the redevelopment of the Lees transit station and as overflow parking for staff at the University of Ottawa, who were themselves being displaced by LRT construction near the main campus. Upon learning about the

plans, the Old Ottawa East community stood firm in opposition and with the help of Capital Coun. David Chernushenko, convinced the city to back off not only its construction staging area plans, but to relocate the parking lot to a different site on Lees Avenue to boot. The exercise has shown how important public consultation is in the municipal democratic process. A great deal of the time, the city needs to tune out public out-

cry on controversial issues. When faced with a decision that affects a large number of residents, a narrow view will not create effective policy. The LRT system itself will ruffle feathers in certain neighbourhoods when the bulldozers arrive to carve a path through the city. Light rail, however, is something being constructed to serve hundreds of thousands of residents and to ensure sustainable growth of the city in the future. The city cannot

afford to bow to narrow interests. The placement of a parking lot, on the other hand, that will only serve a narrow constituency – in this case the university – is the exact type of decision where close consultation with local residents is required. It’s the sort of decision that requires careful consideration of all available options, because it will have a profound effect on this narrow constituency. At first, the city didn’t

do that. It looked at a map, saw a convenient location and proceeded with its plans. If it had involved the public from the beginning, discovered how important the greenspace was to area residents and investigated other options, a messy public relations exercise could have been avoided. In the end, the city did the right thing. We can only hope it learns from the experience and doesn’t make the same mistake again.


The pause that refreshes CHARLES GORDON Funny Town


was at the National Arts Centre recently to see Metamorphoses which was, like all NAC Theatre productions, strikingly staged. Even if the play doesn’t knock you out, its visual presentation is always going to be interesting. In this case, it was more interesting than usual because it was played mostly in the water – a kind of wading pool at the front part of the stage and a deep tank with transparent sides at the back. The actors were in and out of the water. Somebody even smoked a cigarette underwater, which is a trick I’m glad I never learned how to do. It was hard enough to quit. The presence of the water, including a kind of constant rain from above the stage, prompted a mildly critical comment in a largely favourable review from the Globe and Mail: “A constant rain of water tumbling down on the upper level of the set is one misjudgment; its aesthetic value is cancelled out by the damage it wreaks acoustically and the suggestions it sends to bladders in the audience (particularly since there’s no intermission).� Actually, the play is only an hour and 20 minutes long, so the lack of an intermission was unlikely to produce a crisis. But the comment did get me to ponder what seems to be a general trend in our theatres to eliminate intermission whenever possible. Some of this may have to do with a trend to shorter plays and concerts: it seems silly to stop an hour-long play in the middle. But for longer plays, or even movies – I remember visiting the snack bar in the middle of Ben Hur and Spartacus, and I’m sure Gone With

the Wind had an intermission – eliminating the intermission takes away what seems to be an important part of the theatre-going experience. That’s the part where the theatre-goers stretch their legs, wander the lobby and discuss what they’ve seen and what might happen next. They bump into people they know and ask how they’re enjoying it so far. Maybe they have an argument. Maybe they pick up on something they missed. Why was the tall guy so angry? Oh, so he was her former husband. However the discussion goes, it helps them to focus on what they have seen and are about to see. Theatre-going, concert-going and movie-going are not supposed to be solitary experiences. They should be social, with people sharing ideas and enthusiasms. That doesn’t happen if they just walk in, sit in their seats for the performance and head for their cars as soon as the event is over. This is recognized at many concerts, where part of the fun is chatting about the music at half-time. And it is true of professional sports. In both cases, there is the added benefit of lightening the wallets of the hungry and thirsty. But theatre is different. As the parent of actors, I know the reasoning: The director and cast have worked hard to establish a mood, to involve the audience so completely that they forget they are sitting in a theatre; when the curtain goes down at intermission, the spell is broken and has to be re-established all over again when the curtain goes up. That’s a persuasive argument. Mind you, a hockey player could argue the same thing – “We really had it going and then the buzzer went and when the next period started we lost our momentum and everything changed.� Hockey players have learned to live it. True, it’s a bit more difficult for actors, who have to stick to a script and can’t just go and punch somebody to get the momentum going again. But they should be able, after intermission, to take consolation in the notion that the audience is fresh and not restless and maybe better able to understand why the tall guy was so angry.

Chinese tea ceremony at Stittsville library John Curry

EMC news - Tea, anyone? And not just any tea but Chinese tea as served in a traditional Chinese tea ceremony celebrating the Chinese New Year which this year began on Sunday, Feb. 10. This Chinese tea ceremony was held at the Stittsville branch of the Ottawa Public Library on Thursday afternoon, Feb. 14, with both library staff members and some of those visiting the branch at that time taking part. Wen-Jean Ho, from the Kanata Chinese Seniors Support Centre and facilitator for the Chinese Seniors Social Group which has recently started up at the Stittsville library, conducted the ceremony, using a traditional Chinese tea service and explaining as she went along. She explained about the different colours of the different kinds of Chinese tea – red, black, green, yellow, etc. Water is heated in a tea pot over an open flame; a tea scoop is used; the water is poured over tea leaves; it’s a whole process but it is also filled with patience, waiting for the tea to be ready. Pastries and snacks are laid out for tasting. Ms. Ho explained that Chinese tea is a very casual, relaxing activity in which families have traditionally gotten together not only to drink tea but to chat. “Chinese people drink lots of tea,” she said, pointing out its importance in the lives of the Chinese. But tea was not the only aspect of Chinese culture on display at the

Stittsville library at this event. A collection of traditional Chinese puppets was not only on display but owner Donna Quince, who at one time lived and taught school in Taiwan where she became enamoured with the puppets, was on hand to tell a little something about some of the puppets, each one of which has a legendary story about it that is well

known in Chinese culture. Ms. Quince told about the puppet Mazu, the Chinese goddess of water to whom the Chinese pray for the good things in life. She has two puppet bodyguards, known as “Thousand Mile Eyes” and “Thousand Mile Ears.” Thousand Mile Eyes has gigantic eyes – guess what Thousand Mile Ears has?

She also told about two brothers, Seventh Brother and Eighth Brother, who were best friends. One brother was to meet the other brother under a bridge but the brother was late and he drowned. She also related the story of the Monkey King, which is a well known story throughout China. Everyone in China and Taiwan knows the story of

the Monkey King, Ms. Quince said. And there are lots more puppets – The Drunk Monk, Princess Iron Fan and more, all with their unique story and their unique appearance. Large replicas of these puppets can be seen in parades which take place in China and Taiwan throughout the year as people like to dress up like the various puppets.

Musical storyteller Geoff Dignam performs John Curry

EMC news - In the Middle Ages, wandering minstrels were commonplace as these singers/ storytellers moved from village to village, entertaining with their music and stories.

It is a musical tradition that has continued to this day, albeit more in musical style than in actual wanderings. So you have had the likes of Woody Guthrie, the American singer, songwriter and folk musician best known for “This Land Is Your Land�; Bob Dylan, the American musician and singer/songwriter with his iconic

“Blowin’ in the Wind�; and Pete Seeger, an American folk singer whose songwriting efforts like “Where Have All The Flowers Gone� and “If I Had a Hammer� became anthems for the American Civil Rights Movement. And this tradition was in evidence at the Friday Music Evening at the Gaia Java Coffee Company shop in Stittsville last Friday, Feb. 15 as Geoff Dignam displayed his musical storytelling style, accompanying himself on the guitar as he delivered what could perhaps best be described as “talking songs.� He sang about Lily, a Princess, and her assortment of accomplices – The Jack of Hearts, the Hanging Judge, Big Jim and his wife Rosemary. And no minstrel, we would presume, has a complete repertoire unless there is a song about a dragon, which Geoff performed, with the dragon ending up turning into an old man.

And on it went, with his lyrical storytelling accentuated with his rhythmic guitar accompaniment that encouraged a toe-tapping response from the audience. There was a story song about mobsters in Vero Beach and another which he termed an epic love song which he had just finished writing the day before. Geoff Dignam, who is from Stittsville and is now in the music program at Concordia University, was introduced at last Friday’s Music Evening at Gaia Java Coffee Company shop by co-owner Paul Melsness who described Geoff as a singer of wonderful folk songs, stories and fun little anecdotes. He marveled at how difficult it must to write music that not only entertains but that also actually tells a story. Geoff Dignam’s website can be found at

Consider becoming a Legion member Special to the News

EMC news – When you go past 1481 Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville, you’ll see an older building sitting on a rise back from the street, with Canadian and Royal Canadian legion flags fluttering in its front yard. This tall, imposing structure is home to the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 618 Stittsville. It is where local veterans, serving members

of the Canadian Forces and their families and friends can socialize. With their reputation as glorified beer parlours long since abandoned, the modern Legion Hall such as this Stittsville Legion Hall provides entertainment for adults and youth alike, with age appropriate recreation programs such as darts, cribbage, euchre, pool and horseshoes in both casual and competitive

formats. The main hall at the Legion building is available for rental for weddings, large group gatherings or meetings of community organizations. There are also other meeting areas in the facility for smaller groups. There is regular entertainment at the Legion Hall, making it a pleasant and fun-filled location for those looking to get out of the house to enjoy

some affordable and local entertainment. Barbecues and other events happen throughout the year. There’s almost always something going on at the Stittsville Legion hall. Just who can join the Stittsville Legion? Surprisingly, virtually everyone can, simply by making application to the branch. By joining, you can become part of Canada’s largest

service organization with its 350,000-plus members. This gives you access to the products and services of a number of corporate partners such as a home and auto insurance company, health care services, a credit card company and an automobile club. And there are more – this is just a few of them. Only Legion members are entitled to the benefits possible through these corporate partnerships. Legion members also contribute to their community by being involved in Legion programs such as literary and art contests. There is also a bursary program for post-secondary education students, available only to members’ children and relatives who are of the appropriate age. Local youth groups such as Scouts, minor hockey and

Cadet units received financial support from the Stittsville Legion. A major focus of the Royal Canadian Legion today is the growing number of unacknowledged veterans of all ages who are present in our society. Their number has increased dramatically over the past few years. As these veterans age, their needs increase. The Royal Canadian Legion serves as an advocate for them with the Department of Veterans Affairs. The membership at the Stittsville Legion is growing as evidenced by the recent induction of seven new members. Everyone in the community is welcome to drop in at the Legion Hall at any time and see for yourself what the Stittsville Legion offers and why its membership is growing.

Stittsville Legion dates to 1969 Earn Extra Money! Keep Your Weekends Free!

John Curry

EMC news - A key ingredient in the formation of the Stittsville Branch 618 of the Royal Canadian Legion in the spring of 1969 was the presence of the Diefenbunker in Carp, a communications center staffed by members of the Royal Canadian Corps of Signals. A number of these Signals Corps personnel were charter members of the Stittsville Legion branch, such as Stan Ferguson, Laurie Durling, Bert Nevers, Bruce Barr, Keith McCannon, Carl Corkum and Jim Newsom. They formed a significant part of what made the Stittsville Legion branch grow and thrive in its early days as they were young, energetic and enthusiastic and were used to work as a team from their duties together in that underground bunker facility known as the Diefenbunker. They also took leadership roles, serving on the early executives and filling the chairs of many of the branchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s committees. Under the leadership of Clint Andrews, the Stittsville Legion branch got going in the spring of 1969, with an initial membership of about 20 members. It held its first official election in October, 1969, with Stan Ferguson becoming the branchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first elected president. Clive Morris was elected vice-president with Keith McCannon as secretary and Bruce Barr as treasurer. Members of the executive were Laurie Durling, Ike Gauvin and Carl Corkum. The branchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s charter was officially presented on January 22, 1970. The new branchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first challenge was to find a home and to stabilize its organization. The branch quickly found a home, namely the Stittsville Orange Hall which had been built in 1930. The new Legion branch negotiated with the Loyal Orange Lodge in 1970 for the purchase of the premises and on September 30, 1970, Stan Ferguson, Clive Morris and Russ Strong, on behalf of the Legion, signed the agreement to purchase the building. The Stittsville Loyal Orange Lodge was given ten yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s free use of the upstairs meeting room. Later, in March, 1981, the Stittsville L.O.L. and the Stittsville Legion entered into a new agreement in which the Orange Lodge was given the use of


The Stittsville Legion Hall on Stittsville Main Street has been home to the Stittsville Legion since its formation in 1969. It was built in 1930 as the Stittsville Orange Hall. the meeting room on a yearto-year basis for one dollar per year. This agreement has now ended with the cessation of the Stittsville Loyal Orange Lodge, with this upstairs room now used as a rehearsal space for the Stittsville Concert Band which is sponsored by the Stittsville Legion. The Stittsville Legion branch flourished, becoming one of the fastest growing branches in Ontario in its early years. By late 1971, for instance, the branch had grown to about 120 ordinary members, ten honourary members and three life members. The branchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ladies Auxiliary was formed on February 20, 1970. The Stittsville Branch 618 of the Royal Canadian Legion has, since its formation, carried out its responsibility to look after the welfare of veterans and their dependents. Regular activities over the years have included weekly bingos, movies, dances, socials and special events. Social activities at the Stittsville Legion over the years have included darts, cribbage, euchre and golf, both at the branch level and outside the branch at zone and more advanced levels. The Stittsville Legion annually presents bursaries for post-secondary education to students who have a connection with war veterans and/or Stittsville Legion members. The Stittsville Legion also holds an annual Remembrance poster, essay and poetry contest for elementary and high school students. Winners at the local level proceed on to the Zone level and beyond.

In the 1970â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and 1980â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, the Stittsville Legion played a major role in the CanadianAmerican Veterans Reunion Association (CAVRA), an international organization involving Canadian and American veterans organizations centred in Eastern Ontario and upper New York State. The Stittsville Legion hosted the annual reunion activities on a couple of occasions. Events would include a parade and other activities such as a CAVRA Queen competition. In 1971, the first soap box derby was held in Stittsville, an event which continued into the 1990â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. The Royal Canadian Legion became the sponsor of this event after providing two trophies for the inaugural event in 1971. The Stittsville Legion became an early supporter of the Stittsville Sunshine Club, a seniors group, when it was formed in the 1970â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, allowing the group to meet at the Legion Hall. In the 1990â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, the Stittsville Legion formed its own seniors group, a 55 Plus Club, which met weekly for cards and fellowship. The first Remembrance Day parade in Stittsville was held in 1970 and became an annual event held at a temporary cenotaph set up in front of the then-village municipal office on Stittsville Main Street, now the site of the Stittsville branch of the Ottawa Public Library. In 1982, a new cenotaph, a 16-foot high obelisk, was erected at the front of the Stittsville arena. This became the focal point for subsequent annual Remembrance Day services.

Stittsville News EMC - Thursday, February 21, 2013 21

NEWS The most awkward vote an elected ofďŹ cial ever has to make is the one that pertains to his/her own salary. Be it municipal, provincial or federal elected ofďŹ cials, we all have to vote at one point or another on what we should make. This issue has been in the news lately with the proposed cost of living allowance to City Councillors, effective January 1, 2013. During a debate in North Gower in the Fall of 2010, all ďŹ ve Rideau-Goulbourn candidates for Councillor were asked whether or not we would support/accept a pay increase during our term, if elected. Coming from a job that paid less than half of what I would make if elected, I said no. In my effort to keep my word to the individual who asked the question, I dissented from the proposed increased at Council on February 13th. However, along with Councillor Mark Taylor, I put forward a motion that would allow me to opt out of the pay increase and remain at the same salary for the remainder of this term. This motion was rejected at Council on a vote of 15-6. I am now forced to accept the pay increase that I had committed not to accept. Councillor Taylor has committed to giving the money back to the City, Councillor Peter Clark has already donated the increase to a charity of his choice. What I want to ask of you is: where should my increase go? It would be wrong of me to vote against the increase and then turn around and accept it, therefore should I write a cheque for the difference back to the City of Ottawa or should I donate it to a charitable or community organization? I want to hear your thoughts on this issue.

Richmond Development On February 13th, the City hosted a meeting to discuss a development application from Caivan Developments at 6335 & 6350 Perth Street. This meeting was well attended by many residents from Richmond and I want to thank them for their attendance and comments during this meeting. Many of the comments made were consistent with the comments heard during the Community Design Plan process for Richmond. Issues such as drainage, communal well systems and sewer services were key issues raised. These are outstanding concerns from the CDP process and as per Council direction in 2010, must be resolved prior to any development outside the current serviceable area in Richmond. Other comments included transportation issues as well as parks and recreation. As soon as possible, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll make comments heard at the meeting available to the public. More information about this application can be found at Please provide any comments on this proposed development to myself or to

Four games in five days for Royals - and all wins! John Curry

EMC sports - Four games in five days. What a way to end the regular season! But when those four games all end up as victories, now thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really a great way to end the regular season! This is what happened for the Stittsville Royals of the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League as the team rattled off four straight wins in five days to finish up its regular season. It all started on Wednesday evening, Feb. 13 when the Royals travelled to Arnprior to take on the hometown Arnprior Packers. After spotting the Packers a 1-0 first period lead and falling behind 3-1 less than eight minutes into the second period, the Royals scored four straight goals to emerge with a 5-3 victory. The Royals directed 25 shots at the Arnprior net while the Packers managed only 15 shots at the Royals net, including only one in the third period. Mike Di Bello with two goals and Kevin Groulx, Steve Genier and Mac Howie with one goal apiece scored for the Royals in this game. Nine different Royals picked up assists in

this game. Earning assists were Alex Hulford, Michael Kalyn, Jordan Bosley, Nate Blenkarn, Brandon Lee, Jake Oliver, Mac Howie, Kevin Groulx and Steve Genier. Friday, Feb. 15 saw the Royals travel to Metcalfe to play the hometown Jets. It was 1-1 after the first period and 2-2 after two periods of play. The Royals struck for two goals within the first seven minutes of the third period and then held on to record a 4-3 victory over the Jets. Mike Di Bello scored twice for the Royals while Alex Hulford and Mac Howie tallied the other Stittsville goals. Tim McDonnell picked up two assists for the Royals in this game. Other assists were earned by Kevin Groulx, Jake Oliver, Michael Kalyn, Steve Genier and Brandon Lee. The Royals had 24 shots on the Metcalfe goal while Royals goalie Karsten Pankhurst had 32 shots directed his way by the Jets. The Royals then suited up for another game the very next night, Saturday, Feb. 16, playing the Shawville Pontiacs in a game in Shawville. Royals goalie Karsten Pankhurst stopped all 21 shots fired his way by the Pontiacs as he notched a shutout in the Royals Net. The Royals took a 1-0 first period lead and

added another couple of goals in the second period to lead 3-0 going into the third period. The Royals then scored the only goal of the final period to win by a 4-0 score. Scoring for the Royals in this game were Alex Hulford, Mac Howie, Ryan Dube and Joe Breslin. Earning assists in the game were Joe Breslin, Matt Kadolph, Jake Oliver, Steve Genier, Steven Plescia, Kevin Groulx and Tim McDonnell. The Royals had 32 shots on the Shawville net in this game. The Stittsville Royals four games in five days scenario ended last Sunday afternoon at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex on Shea Road in Stittsville when the Royals shut out the visiting Metcalfe Jets 2-0. The Royals scored with one second left in the first period to take a 1-0 lead. It stayed this way until nearly the 16 minute mark of the third period when the Royals scored again, making it 2-0 which was the final score. Mike Di Bello scored both of the Royals goals in this game. Kevin Groulx earned two assists in the game while other Royals assists went to Nate Blenkarn and Tim McDonnell. The closeness of the game was reflected not

only in the close 2-0 score but also in the fact that both teams had 36 shots on the opposition net. For Royals goalie Karsten Pankhurst, it was his second straight shutout in two days. This four victory streak in just five days brought the Stittsville Royals record for the season to 19 wins, 20 losses and 3 overtime losses in the 42 game regular season. The teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 41 points is good for third place in the six-team Valley Division of the Metro/Valley Conference. Over the course of the season, the Royals had scored 166 goals while allowing 171 goals. The Perth Blue Wings have finished in first place in the Valley Division with 53 points, 12 more than the Royals. Renfrew Timberwolves have finished in second place with the Royals in third. The Arnprior Packers have finished in fourth place, with the Almonte Thunder in fifth place and the Shawville Pontiacs in sixth place. Kevin Groulx has finished the regular season as the top scorer on the Royals with 48 points thanks to 17 goals and 31 assists. Alex Hulford of the Royals finished the regular season with 42 points on the basis of 24 goals and 18 assists.

Stittsvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mel Dodd-Moher in nets Special to the News

EMC sports - Mel DoddMoher of Stittsville is in nets for the Queens University Gaels womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hockey team again this year. This is her fourth season with the Gaels, with the team finishing up the regular season with a record of 20 wins, 4 losses and 2 ties. Mel Dodd-Moher is one of three goalies on the team this season. The Gaels, ranked No. 7

in Canada, faced the Windsor Lancers in a best-of-three Ontario University Athletics opening round playoff series. The Gaels lost the opening game of this playoff series 6-1 to the Windsor Lancers even though the Lancers finished far behind the Gaels in the regular season with their record of 12 wins, 10 losses and 4 ties. Queens had won all three regular season games between the two teams.

Queens, though, came back to win the next two games of the playoff series, winning 3-2 on Saturday, Feb. 16 and then taking the deciding game 7-1 last Sunday, Feb. 17. Mel Dodd-Moher did not play in nets for the Gaels in either of these games. The Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s University Gaels now advanced to play the University of Guelph, ranked No. 6 in Canada, in Ontario University Athletics semi-final playoff action.

Mel Dodd-Moher, a fourth year biology student at Queens, is a graduate of South Carleton High School in Richmond. In the 2010-2011 season, Mel Dodd-Moher played in the longest game in collegiate hockey history when the Gaels played Guelph. In her rookie 2009-2010 season, Mel Dodd-Moher was named to the Canadian Interuniversity Sport All-Rookie Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hockey Team.

Winding up Mounties career Wray Perkin Mount Allison Sports Information

CANDLELIGHT VIGIL As you may be aware there was a very tragic incident that occurred in the community of Stittsville on January 14th that resulted in the loss of three precious lives. A candlelight vigil, to remember the late members of our community is to be held on Saturday, February 23rd at 7pm.

Your Community Newspaper

Meghan Corley-Byrne of Stittsville, a goalie, has played her last regular season home game for the Mount Allison Mounties women’s hockey team last Sunday, Feb. 17. It turned out to be a shoot-

out win over St. Mary’s University at the Mounties home arena in Sackville, New Brunswick. Prior to the game, Meghan was presented with her graduation hockey sweater by Mounties head coach Zach Ball. Meghan, who attended

South Carleton High School in Richmond, is one of five graduating players for the Mount Allison Mounties who will be suiting up for the their team for the last time at this week’s Subway Atlantic University Sport (AUS) Womens’ Hockey Championships which Mount Allison is hosting.

The Vigil for the late Alison, Alex and Katie Corchis will take place at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex at 1500 Shea Road in the South parking lot near the second ice pad. This tragedy has touched the Stittsville community and area very deeply. As the funerals were held out of town, our community expressed a sincere interest in holding a vigil for the family to express their grief and offer support as a community as a whole. CANADA POST MAIL KIOSKS I do have an update from Canada Post as they, and not the City of Ottawa staff, are responsible for looking after their Canada Post Community Mail Kiosks both at Snowy Owl Trail and throughout the Stittsville area. They have advised me that Canada Post contracts the garbage collection pick up to an outside agency. They have decided to keep the kiosks on a maintenance schedule for the next three months. Once that three month period is up, it is my understanding that Canada Post will be removing all garbage bins. It will be at that time, the customers’ responsibility to take their mail/flyers home and open/recycle it at their home. Canada Post customers have the option to receive or not receive unaddressed admail/flyers. You simply need to notify Canada Post if they do not want to receive this type of correspondence. Canada Post staff have advised that this information has now been posted at each kiosk explaining the changes. 1ST ANNUAL FAIRWINDS WINTER FESTIVAL This a great time of year to bring our community together! Come and join in some winter time fun. Take part in snow activities, or just warm your tootsies around the bonfire by roasting hot dogs and marshmallows while enjoying a warm beverage!

Following the footsteps of other previously established Ontario Women’s Institutes, they were promoting an appreciation of rural living. Stittsville’s Women’s Institute wanted to develop informed citizens through the study of national and international issues (particularly those affecting women and children).

All five – Meghan CorleyByrne, Lauren Oickle, Ashlyn Somers, Chelsea King and Jenelle Hulan – will be graduating this coming May. All five including Meghan have seen high and low points over the course of their university hockey careers. The Mounties were the runners-up in the championship game a year ago. This runnerup finish was a great improvement from what Meghan had experienced in her first two seasons as a Mountie. “At the start of my career I found that times were tough but over the years the experiences and growth of the team has been awesome to watch,” Meghan, the team’s fifth year goalie, says. “Coach Zach Ball has given the team everything they need to succeed, and our team being able to host the playoffs can be attributed to the hard work of our players and coaches,” she said. The Mounties experienced a touch season this year following their loss in the championship final last season, posting a record of seven wins, 13 losses and four ties, good for sixth place in the standings. The team had lots of young players on its roster this season, meaning that the veteran players like Meghan Corley-Byrne had to take on a more important leadership role. The Mounties are looking forward to the advantage of playing at home in this year’s playoffs, maintaining the same routine as a normal home game. This, added to the prestige and excitement of hosting the playoffs, will make for an exciting week for the Mounties. For the five graduating players including Meghan Corley-Byrne, it is going to be a bittersweet tournament as they will be playing the final games of their Mountie careers. But the possibility of winning it all right at home on their own ice is generating a lot of excitement among them.

Hannah Smith on track for success EMC news - Her goal is to win a track and field scholarship to an American university. She knows that it’s possible if she continues to work hard and gets the results that she needs for it to happen. And 15 year old Hannah Smith, a grade ten student at Sacred Heart Catholic High School in Stittsville, is starting to compile such a record. This is her first year at Sacred Heart but in last year’s provincial high school track and field meet, competing for her previous school, Hannah placed first in the long jump and in the triple jump events while also placing fifth in the 80 metres hurdles. She notes that she had special motivation at this meet because she had just found out the day before that a favourite aunt had cancer and she wanted to do well as a result. She says that her aunt is always happy and positive in outlook and has always been there to cheer her on. So she wanted to do well and that’s what she did. Hannah has also competed in provincial and national track and field competitions. She has excelled at the provincial level but this past year was held back at the national level because of illness which affected her training and her meet-day performance. But this year Hannah will again be competing not only in the provincial high school track and field competition (Ontario Federation of Schools Athletic Association or OFSAA) but also in the provincial and national track and field meets. The nationals this year will be in British Columbia. She is a member of the Ottawa Lions Track and Field

Hannah Smith Club, training with the Club five times a week. While the triple jump and long jump are good events for her, she wants to compete in the heptathlon, a track and field combined events contest made up of seven events which include the 100 metre hurdles, the high jump, the shot put, the 200 metres, the long jump, the javelin throw and the 800 metres. The heptathlon made its Summer Olympics debut in 1984. At this year’s OFSAA high school provincial competition, Hannah will be competing in the triple jump and the long jump. She also wants to

do a third event but right now does not know if that will be hurdles or the shot put. She enjoys her jumping events, saying they require both coordination and speed. There needs to be forward momentum for the jumper but there also is a need for height. It is all a matter of both muscle and speed which is why training is so important. Hannah got into track after starting off in gymnastics. However, a foot injury four years ago forced her to withdraw from gymnastics. Both her father and sister were involved with track, so she took it up and hasn’t looked back. However, her injured foot

still requires remedial surgery, something that she is planning to have done following this year’s track season. She admits that making it to the Olympics is a dream of hers, just like with any athlete, but she does wonder if it is a reasonable dream. A scholarship to an American university is her dream of choice right now. Hannah says that she is enjoying being at Sacred Heart where she finds fellow students friendly and the teachers good. Math is her favourite subject as she says that she gets a good feeling when she gets it right. She had wanted to join the school’s volleyball team this year but found that with her track and field training, she did not have the time for it. She travels to the Ottawa Lions track training facility in east end Ottawa every weekday, leaving about 3:45 p.m. to arrive for the 5 p.m. practice sessions. When the outdoor track season begins in the spring, the travel will be a little easier with the Mooney’s Bay facility being the training destination. Hannah says that she is not good at either singing or dancing or any artistic endeavours but she does use music to help her warm up for track, saying that it helps her focus. And what kind of music? “Any kind of pump up music,” she says. She comes from a busy and athletic family with three siblings. Her father plays hockey and has coached track while her mother is a marathon runner. She says that she has always wanted a dog (“any kind of dog”) but admits that with the busy and athletic lifestyle that she and her family pursue, having a dog is just not in the cards right now.

Ottawa’s #1 Ranked Soccer Club

OSU Celebrates 10 years, rise into leading local soccer club It’s been 10 years since members of South Nepean United and the Osgoode-Rideau Soccer Association approved the merger that gave life to Ottawa South United Soccer Club, and set out on an ambitious quest to become the best youth club in Ottawa and amongst the best in Ontario and Canada. “We thought if we followed the principles and vision we setup, that it would realistically take over 15 years,” recalls OSU Founding and current President Bill Michalopulos. OSU is now the only Ottawa club to: earn a Gold Level Club Excellence Award from the Ontario Soccer Association, top the Terra Ontario soccer club rankings and facilitate over 80 soccer scholarships for OSU’s players to universities /colleges all over North America. “By any tangible measure I think we’ve exceeded our vision, set the operating benchmark for soccer clubs and OSU is well resourced, motivated and organized to take on the challenges of the next 10 years,” Michalopulos adds. Both original clubs recognized that there was a gap at the time in how soccer was delivered at the grassroots level in Ottawa and frustrated by the then common organizational and operating models, which were not conducive to the proper development of players and coaches. They realized that with ORSA’s management expertise and South Nepean’s strong soccer programs, combining forces offered great potential. “It was a good marriage of two complimentary clubs,” says Michalopulos. “There was an understanding that 1 + 1 = 3 or that the sum is greater than the two parts coming together. We were simply determined to see our youth play better soccer and have more fun doing it.” Considering the significant challenge of bringing two clubs together under one banner, it was a fairly smooth transition from the start, reflects OSU founding member Rene Braendli. “The leadership from both clubs wanted to make it happen, and I think that was the key,” explains the long-time South Nepean soccer leader and current OSU exec. “And we still have the people to push that vision along.” The new alliance translated well on the ground level too. There’s a family feel that runs strong on teams throughout the club, highlights OSU coach Gord MacGregor. “It’s an environment where we’re all there together, supporting each other no matter what,” describes the former ORSA player. “It’s important that every player, every parent and every coach has that camaraderie. Everyone really is a family. It’s like one big, giant team. OSU hit many key milestones along the way to its 10th anniversary (see sidebar for more details). This includes establishing strategic alliances with leading clubs in the U.S. and Europe – the Dallas Texans and Everton FC – and providing a dedicated staff approach to running a community club in order to provide better programs so players can develop and have more fun. “We still depend on our volunteers and we’re very thankful we have our volunteers to carry most of the load,” Michalopulos notes, adding that those same people recognize the indispensable value of having full-time staff such as Jim Lianos, Club General Manager since almost Day 1. “It wasn’t sustainable. That’s the old model,” Michalopulos emphasizes. “We knew we had to improve on the management organization of the club in order to perform at a certain level in a sustainable manner. “We were able to put together an environment for excellence. On a grand level, we have simply pushed soccer forward in Ottawa and improved the level of play. That’s our biggest accomplishment.” A major project – which now stands as a physical symbol of the club’s progress and perseverance over many years – was the construction of six playing fields in Manotick to accommodate a growing player base that’s now exceeded 6,500 – from youth recreational/ developmental soccer to competitive/elite, through to the adult & senior levels. Within two years, a home clubhouse will be built at George Nelms Sports Park, a further signal of the bright future that lies ahead for OSU. Also playing a key role in ongoing success will be UEFA ‘A’ Licence Coach Paul Harris – a recent groundbreaking addition as OSU Club Head Coach via Everton’s famed youth academy “We want to mimic the best of what they do overseas here in order to improve soccer development for our players and coaches,” Lianos underlines. “And Paul knows the Everton way as well as anyone.” Providing an environment for high performance players to move onto the next level is an OSU trademark, with over 80 players receiving scholarships to play university and college soccer in Canada and the U.S., and others recruited into professional team academies. Without discounting the tremendous success OSU has achieved in consistently winning championships locally, becoming a force in the province’s top youth league, and even besting top opponents from around the world at the exclusive Disney College Showcase and Dallas Cup events, perhaps the biggest source of pride is seeing the deeper impact the club has made on members’ lives over 10 years. “We’re a huge part of the community. You walk around in the summer and every field is being used by the club and you see soccer players all over the place,” Braendli smiles. “It’s been a fantastic journey, but this is not the end. We’re still pushing ahead and we’ve still got to do better. We cannot stand still.”

High school co-op student at News Sydney Steele Special to the News

EMC news – Life is a journey and this is my journey so far. My name is Sydney Steele and I am a new high school co-op student at the Stittsville News EMC. I am a 16-year-old and I am currently in Grade 11 at South Carleton High School in Richmond but I have been living in Stittsville all of my life. I love travelling and I have been fortunate enough to visit many places. But I don’t think I could ever leave the comfort that I find in the Stittsville community. I am very fond of the community that I live in and I try to be involved in many different ways. This is one of the reasons why I decided to do my co-op placement at the Stittsville News EMC. Doing this co-op is a great way to get further involved in my community while at the same time gaining

valuable work experience. Since a very young age I developed a passion for writing. But before I made this decision, I wanted to be an archaeologist until I figured out that the job really wasn’t anything like the Indiana Jones movies. As I continued to grow up watching the news on the television in the morning before school with my mother and reading all of the local newspapers on the weekend with my father I quickly developed an interest in current events. This passion is still growing to this day. Writing for a newspaper would blend my passion for writing and current events together perfectly. I have been given an amazing opportunity to not only co-op at a local newspaper but I also get to write in it. In turn this will help confirm if I really do want to become a journalist in the future. Another of my passions is horseback riding and it has been since

Rain barrels Special to the News

EMC news - The Stittsville Village Association (SVA) is preparing for more rain barrel sales this spring. The SVA has established Saturday, April 20 as the date when the rain barrels will be available for pickup by purchasers. This will happen, just like it did for last year’s

I started at the age of six. Over the past ten years I have ridden at many barns all located around the Stittsville/Richmond area. Currently I am riding at Westar Farms at Ashton and training with Jeff McKessock. I own one horse that I compete with at local shows during the summer. Through my equestrian involvement, I have met many members of the Stittsville community. Often we also travel to Quebec to compete in horse shows. Between school work and riding horses I don’t have much time for anything else. When I began riding I never thought that it would take up such a huge part of my life but I would never want to change it. Through the work experience that I gain during my co-op at the Stittsville News EMC I hope to not only learn about the job but also to learn more about the Stittsville community and the wonderful people who live in it. So if you see me out and about, please say hello.

inaugural rain barrel sales, at the parking lot at Stittsville Sobeys. The SVA is now making its final arrangements regarding the cost of the rain barrels this year and the promotional methods that will be used to publicize their sale to the community. Last year’s rain barrel sale by the SVA saw more than 400 rain barrels sold, generating about $4,000 in proceeds for the SVA. Last year’s rain barrels sold for $55 each, with the SVA receiving $10 from each sale.


Grade 11 South Carleton High School student Sydney Steele is settling into her co-operative education placement with Metroland East’s Stittsville News EMC. She looks forward to learning a great deal about the profession during her time with the newspaper.

Art exhibition at Sacred Heart John Curry


EMC news - It’s an oasis of art at Sacred Heart High School in Stittsville. Found as one emerges onto the second floor from the school’s front stairway, this wide open art gallery space is currently home to a grade 12 student art exhibition entitled “Perception and Dreamscapes.” This art show, which opened on Monday, Jan. 21, will run through to Thursday, May 30. The 43 works on display have been done by students in the school’s grade 12 art course under the guidance of art teacher Ms. Leydin Mullally. It is a course designed to help students develop a portfolio to back up an application for admission to a college or university art program. But, in addition, it is also a course for any student who just loves art. So, you know that any art exhibition that features the work by these students is going to be not just good but awesome and that’s the case with “Perception and Dreamscapes.” Each student has to submit at least two pieces, hopefully their best work from the course. In addition, the student has to prepare an artist’s statement explaining the work, the materials used and the motivation behind the work. The students must also frame the work if required, usually borrowing an appropriate frame. It is all meant to give these student artists an appreciation for what artists must do – not only create the art but prepare it for exhibition as well. And, as might be expected, the exhibition features a wide range of styles, of subjects, of materials used, giving it an appeal to onlookers of every kind. Sacred Heart student Michaela Robinson, who hopes to enroll in a visual arts course at university, is one who has three works on display in this current exhibition. One, named “Breaking Point,” features a graphic facial depiction created by using polyfilla over canvas but

cracking the polyfilla to illustrate the human breaking point and the angst and frustration that comes from such a condition. Her other two works are drawn from family experiences: “Picture Perfect,” a work showing a blurred husband and father disappearing from the scene in a divorce, and “Innocence of a Child,” a pencil-drawing portrait of a father as an innocent, happy child. You can’t miss the work of Dom Camps, another student who hopes to take visual arts in university, in this exhibition. It’s there, staring out at you – a pair of skulls. She had taken a life drawing class dealing with the human figure and these skulls evolved out of that. But while both depict giant skulls, the two paintings are different – one is smooth while the other is textured. She says that people seem to like the contrast between the two similar paintings. And as for why they are so large – simple. “I like painting big,” Dom says. So it’s all about enjoyment. Art has always been played a big part in Dom’s life and art is what she envisages in her future. She is not seeking an office job as career but rather work that is interesting, hands-on and creative. Michelle Dingley, who has engineering or architecture in her post-secondary schooling plans, admits that her painting depicting environmental disaster took her outside her normal artistic comfort zone. It is a mixed media work, with plaster used to create ridges while tissue paper and linseed oil are also used. “This one was just trying something new and finding a message I am really passionate about,” Michelle says about the painting which depicts a boat, fish and the impacts of pollution, all found below a sky depicted in a “crazy, toxic way.” “The idea for this came out of nowhere,” she says. There was talk about pollution issues. She was experimenting with background treatments. And then she realized that she could produce a painting with a message and this is what she

Michelle has taken art classes in the community as well s art classes all through her high school years. She admits that she really loves art. It is the possible combination of art and her favoured math that is drawing her to pursing a career in architecture or engineering, something that could combine her two favourite subjects. But the student art in this “Perception and Dreamscapes” exhibition varies immensely in style, form and subject matter. Brooke Zacharuk’s “The Window, 2012” showing flowers on a window sill is done with a graphite pencil on paper. She also has an acrylic on canvas work, showing her diversity of medium. Rachel Durst’s “Imperfect” is a pencil on paper masterpiece while her “Summer Paradise” acrylic on canvas portrays palm trees against a red sunset. Kellsie Alexander’s pencil drawing “Spirit of Marilyn” shows that the image of Marilyn Monroe still has appeal to today’s youth, even years after her 1962 death and decades after she burst onto the glamour scene.

Special to the News


EMC news - The Royal Canadian Legion is looking for participants for its upcoming Zone G5 public speaking contest. This is for youth in grades 1 through 12, with the contest taking place on Saturday, March 2 at the Strathcona Branch of the Royal Canadian Legion on Bank Street in Ottawa. There is no public speaking contest at the local branch level. Participants go directly to this Zone event which, for the winners, will lead to the opportunity to continue on to the District level competition on Saturday, April 6 in Napanee. But those interested in participating in this Zone G5 public speaking contest should act quickly to register because there are only a limited number of entries that can be accommodated and so registration is on a first come, first served basis, with the first 30 entries in the grades 1 to 6 category being accepted and also the first 30 entries in the grades 7 to 12 category being accepted. This Zone G5 public speaking contest is open to youth in Stittsville, Goulbourn and Richmond as well as other parts of the city of Ottawa except for Kanata, West Carleton and Osgoode which are in different Legion Zones and hence have their own public speaking contests. Those participating in the primary (grades 1 to 3), junior (grades 4 to 6) and intermediate (grades 7 to 9) categories in this Zone G5 public speaking contest will be expected to deliver a speech of three to five minutes in duration. Those participating in the senior (grades 10 to 12) category will present a speech that lasts from five to seven minutes in length. The topic of the speeches is open-ended, with any topic selected by the participant is allowed. The speech can be delivered in either French or English. Completed registration forms must be received by the Royal Canadian Legion no later than Thursday, Feb. 28. Entry forms can be found on the website php.

Water dominates at Richmond public meeting John Curry

etation planted on its banks, making it quite a lovely area with pathways on which people would be able to walk. She said that the development will have 29 acres of green space and open space related to the storm water works and other features. Besides storm water, water under the ground also generated concerned comments at the meeting. Mr. Cairo said that the plan to provide water to homes in the new development from two to four new deep wells located just south of the area of the proposed subdivision has had to demonstrate that there would be no impact on existing wells in the village. He said that if these new wells were to adversely impact an existing well or wells, then the developer is required by legislation to revolve the problem. It was pointed out that most of the existing wells in the village draw from a different, shallower aquifer than will be the deeper wells that will service the new development area. In addition, the new deeper wells will be encased for their whole depth, further ensuring that there is no infiltration or impact on the shallower aquifer. It was also pointed out that the deep aquifer from which the new wells will draw water is like an “underground lake” that will easily handle the water demands of the new western development lands in the village. Indeed, these wells, perhaps augmented by others,

will have the capacity to provide water to the whole village in the future if there ever arose a situation where piped water service was needed to replace the existing private well system. The subdivision being proposed by Caivan Developments is the first subdivision proposed to come forward since the Richmond Community Design Plan was approved by the city of Ottawa in 2010. This plan, calling for roughly 1,000 new homes, will flank Perth Street at the western edge of the village. The plan covers approximately half of the so-called western development lands, with Mattamy Homes retaining ownership of the southern part. It is expected that Mattamy Homes will be coming forward with a plan of subdivision for its lands at some time in the future. There will be a public meeting in the future dealing with the actual zoning for the subdivision. This will happen once the draft plan of subdivision for this Caivan proposal is approved. About 60 percent of the proposed new homes will be single family homes while the other 40 percent will be multiple townhome-type housing. There will be a 4.5 acre active park on a site south of Perth Street. A proposed school site is not included in these Caivan lands but in the Mattamy lands farther to the south. Planning consultant Pamela Sweet, speaking for the developer, said that there would be a 10 to 15 year build out for the subdivision. This means up to 100 new homes being built per year. For the past few years, there have been roughly 50 new homes built in Richmond on an annual basis.

“It certainly is not going to happen very quickly,” she said. “It will take some time.” There will be recreation trails through the site and a bridge over the Van Gaal Drain at the extension of the existing Martin Street will provide a pedestrian link from the new development to the existing village. There will be no such pedestrian link for the lands on the north side of Perth Street. Perth Street will eventually be widened to four lanes from the fire hall west to the village limit. A roundabout will be installed where Perth Street intersects with the major collector road serving both the north and south areas of the new subdivision. Mr. Cairo said that Caivan Developments would like to build as many of the new homes as possible but admitted that there is a possibility that other builders will be involved as well. He saw a benefit in this because it will introduce different housing styles and architecture into the subdivision so that there is some variety to the streetscape and is not all homogeneous in appearance. He said that lot frontages and depths will be beyond the minimums outlined in the Community Design Plan. Depths will range from 27 to 30 metres while lot frontages for singles will be in the 9 metre to 15 ½ metre range (30 feet to 50 feet). For townhomes, the frontages are projected to be between 6 and 9 metres. He suggested that development will probably start on the land south of Perth Street adjacent to the storm water works. Improvements must be made to the Richmond pump-

ing station before this proposed development can proceed. The pumping station has to be upgraded for this proposed development to go ahead, said city of Ottawa planner Cheryl McWilliams who chaired the meeting. It was stated that while the existing pumping station building would not be expanded structurally, a new small adjacent building would probably be erected to house an auxiliary power source. Mr. Cairo stated that any growth-related costs related to this pumping station improvement will be funded entirely by the development, either through development charges or other mechanisms. “At the end of the day, growth pays for growth,” he asserted. The question of adequate school space to handle students from the new development was answered by saying that there has been a school site reserved in the lands to the south now owned by Mattamy Homes. City planner Cheryl McWilliams said that the school boards had been involved in the Community Design Process with the result that only one new school site was identified. She said that the city relies on the school boards to plan for school facilities. In response to a question about a proposed new road along the north boundary of the village, it was pointed out that such a street is not needed to handle the traffic generated by this proposed new subdivision. Such a road may receive some consideration when the city updates its Transportation Master Plan in the future.


EMC news - Water, both on the surface and underground, dominated much of the discussion at the public meeting on Wednesday, Feb. 13 in Richmond dealing with possible development of some of the lands on the western edge of the village. More than 125 people attended the meeting at the Richmond Memorial Community Centre arena hall to hear about the proposed subdivision and to provide input and concerns about the development, many dealing with water. This is water not only found in the Van Gaal Drain which flows through the development site but also the shallow underground source that provides water to many existing homes in the village. It was pointed out that all storm water remedies related to the proposed new subdivision will be funded by the development and not by existing taxpayers. The plan is to realign and widen the Van Gaal Drain in the development area. Any such work has to be approved by the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority as well as by the city of Ottawa since it is a municipal drain. Frank Cairo of Caivan Developments, the firm which has proposed this 1,000 lot subdivision on both the north and south sides of Perth Street, said that some of the

work altering and improving the Van Gaal Drain could happen in the next 12 months if the appropriate approvals are received. He said that the work will happen entirely on Caivan owned lands. It was pointed out that the grade changes required for development are going to be kept as low as possible. Sump pumps with battery backups will be installed in basements of new homes where needed. Concerns were expressed as to how the proposed storm water pond and its outlet could accommodate the quicker runoff that will happen when the area is developed. It was stated that the quicker, extra runoff has been accounted for in the model for the storm water drainage for the development. Mr. Cairo backed up this assessment, saying the new storm water pond is being designed at a depth to accommodate all of the possible inflows. “All of the flows in the drains is being accounted for,” he confirmed. Planning consultant Pamela Sweet, speaking on behalf of Caivan Developments, explained that the proposed storm water pond would become an attraction rather than what the Van Gaal Drain is today, namely a farm-type drain. She said that the Van Gaal Drain, in being widened and improved and relocated along the property’s eastern boundary, would have veg-

Development may alter village feel John Curry

EMC news - The proposed new 1,000 home subdivision at the western edge of Richmond could alter the community’s present village atmosphere. That was the worry expressed by at least two residents at the Feb. 13 public meeting held in Richmond about the proposed new subdivision. Richmond resident Ken Faux expressed support for the new subdivision but disputed a statement made that there had been a desire for smaller lot sizes in the community expressed in the Community Design Plan process. He said that people move to Richmond precisely because of the larger lot sizes available. He said that he moved to a village when he moved to Richmond, but added that with the lot sizes that are being suggested for this new subdivision, Richmond will no longer be a village but simply a location with a tract housing

development at the western edge of an existing village. Richmond resident Doug Arnold said that the Community Design Plan process made it clear that Richmond residents don’t want Richmond to become another Barrhaven or Stittsville. But he warned that if this subdivision goes ahead, this is precisely what Richmond will end up being like. Mr. Arnold also complained about the Community Design Plan process, saying that Mattamy Homes, a developer, paid for it, that it was accepted in an incomplete form by the city of Ottawa and that it was not an open or democratic process, noting that he had volunteered to be involved and had been turned down. City of Ottawa planner Cheryl McWilliams, who chaired the public meeting, dismissed these Community Design Plan concerns, saying that the Community Design Plan for Richmond “is what it is” and had been approved by Ottawa city council in 2010.

No revenge Friendship Club luncheon on Wednesday, Feb. 27 on Emerson Carole Herbert and Helen James Special to the News

Emerson wasn’t happy. He was grumpy since he got home from school on Friday and Mother announced that Saturday he would be donning an apron. Mother was high on equality of the sexes back in the days when it had yet to become a popular topic, so once a month, the brothers were in the house to do chores and my sister Audrey and I were sent to the barns. I loved the day we were with Father in the cow byre and the stable, even though he did all the heaviest chores himself. Mother thought any child, male or female, wouldn’t amount to a hill of beans unless they knew how to scrub floors, churn butter, put a meal on the table and if need be, bake a batch of bread. She drew the line, however, at teaching the brothers to sew after Emerson, who was allowed to use the old Singer Sewing machine once just to see how it worked sewed the legs closed on Everett’s long underwear. Mother made him sit that night at the kitchen table and pick out every last stitch with a darning needle! So that Saturday, bright and early, my three brothers, Everett, Emerson and Earl, were given their lists -- Mother was also high on lists too. On went the long white pinnies. Emerson hated them almost as much as he hated house chores. “If the guys at school ever saw me in one of these, I’d be a goner,” he growled. He glared at me “and don’t you ever, and I mean ever, tell a soul,” he snarled, “or you will pay dearly.” Suddenly, as if someone had lit a candle over my head, I realized this little bit of knowledge might come in handy down the road. I just might be able to use it to my advantage. So began a tug-o-war so to speak. When Emerson aggravated me, which was too often to suit me, I would threaten to tell everyone at Northcote School what Emerson looked like in a long white pinnie. I even went as far as to draw a stick lad, wearing an apron and printed Emerson’s name under it. I kept it in my primer book reader at the ready and made sure Emerson knew it was there.

Emerson’s teasing came to an abrupt halt, I can tell you. I finally had him where I wanted him. I took my sister Audrey into my confidence and even showed her the drawing of the stick lad. At that stage in her life, Audrey was high on religion. She thought what I was doing could be classified as a sin. I mulled over this bit of information and I certainly didn’t want to bring on the wrath of God, but for the life of me I couldn’t understand for a minute why God would care about a scrap of paper with a stick drawing on it which was supposed to be my brother Emerson. Well, the whole idea of using it to expose Emerson at Northcote School wearing a pinnie came to a crashing end not more than a week after I threatened to expose him. It all happened when Three Mile Herman came to school mad as a hatter. Now, Three Mile Herman’s mother and my mother belonged to the Women’s Institute together and it seems they got to talking about their families. Three Mile Herman said his mother was told by our mother her idea of switching chores between the sons and daughters and it was good training and made perfect sense if they were ever going to amount to a hill of beans. That’s all she needed to hear. Mother had earned great respect in the Northcote area since everyone knew she had come from New York and therefore must be up on all the latest trends and ideas. So before he could say “jackrabbit,” Three Mile Herman was in an apron doing house chores. Unlike Emerson, he didn’t care who knew it. That didn’t mean he liked either the pinnie or doing house chores, but he like to talk and he liked an audience, so soon everyone at the Northcote School knew about our brothers and the boys in Three Mile Herman’s family doing house chores. Well, that took the sting off for Emerson. There was someone else at Northcote School in the same kettle of fish as he as. I had to tear up the picture I drew and kept in my primer book reader, and Emerson was back to making my life miserable.

To have, to love and then to part, Is the greatest sorrow of one’s heart. Time doesn’t take away the memory, Of the happy days we all had together. Sadly missed, Shirley

Carolyn Bayford (nee Badham)


In loving memory of a dear sister who passed away February 21, 2011 The years may wipe out many things But this they’ll wipe out never, The memory of those happy days When we were all together. We think of you in silence, Her name we oft recall, But there’s nothing left to answer But her picture on the wall. Just when her life was brightest, Just when her hopes were best, God called her from among us To a home of eternal rest. Lovingly remembered, Jim & Lorraine Tim & Arda Brent & Mary
