EMC sports - A trio of wrestlers wants to attend the 2013 Juvenile/Cadet National Wrestling Championship in Saskatoon, Sask. They have qualiﬁed for the event thanks to their medal-winning performances at the recent Ontario Cadet and Juvenile Wrestling Championship in St. Catharines. The three wrestlers, all grade ten students at South Carleton High School in Richmond, are Andrea Pretty, Claire Lizotte and Liam Crockett. All three were gold medalists in the recent National Capital Secondary School Athletic Association tournament. At the Ontario Cadet and Juvenile Wrestling Championship in St. Catharines, Liam Crockett won a gold medal while both Andrea pretty and Claire Lizotte won silver medals. All three are members of the National Capital Wrestling Club as well as of the wrestling team at South Carleton High School. Right now, the trio are trying to obtain corpo-
rate sponsors to help with some of the expenses that they are facing in attending the 2013 Juvenile/Cadet National Wrestling Championship in Saskatoon which runs from April 4 to April 7. Estimated expenses total nearly $5,000 ($4,960 to be exact). This is comprised of air fare to and from Saskatoon, four nights in a hotel (two to a room), meals for four days, tournament fees of $300 per athlete and car rental for four days. This provides an opportunity for local businesses to support three youth whose training and commitment to their sport of wrestling has earned them the opportunity to represent their sport, the community and the wider city of Ottawa on a national stage at this upcoming national wrestling championship. For more information or to offer some ﬁnancial help, please contact Liam Crockett at 613-612-1488, Claire Lizotte at 613-836-3553 or Andrea Pretty at 613-914-3476.
EMC news - “Think!”, the theme song for the television quiz show Jeopardy!, was heard 100 times at the Lions Hall in Stittsville last Friday evening. It was played during the answer time period after each question at the eighth annual Trivia Challenge Night hosted by the Rotary Club of Ottawa – Stittsville. And think was something that the 20 eight-person teams who ﬁlled the hall did as they responded with answers to the trivia questions – ten rounds of ten questions each. No better example of the thinking involved was the way that the winning team, the West Ottawa Rotary, came up with its clinching answer in the third shootout question against the Hawaiian-themed Lauwiluvilinukunka’aici (or something like that) team. The two teams had tied for ﬁrst place with 78 points each after the ten regulation rounds, forcing the two-team shootout, one questions at a time. The West Ottawa Rotary team used their heads in coming up with their winning answer to a question about the location of the Capodichino airport. Team member Don Butler explained that the team knew that “capo” meant a headland jutting into the sea. With this knowledge, they deducted that the location had to be an Italian city that was on a coastline and so they opted for Naples. It was the correct answer, giving the team the Trivia Challenge Night title for 2013. So it was thinking and reasoning, not direct trivia knowledge, that saw this team triumph – the Jeopardy! theme song lived up to its name – “Think!” Members of this West Ottawa Rotary team were Graeme Fraser, Keith Fraser, Alan
Bowles, Mark Sherboneau, Dave Morton, Brett Brooking, Don Butler and Roslyn Butler. Second place went to the Hawaiian-themed team who wore leis, had stuffed Hawaiian ﬁsh toys on their table and wore Hawaiian-ﬂavoured clothing. Third place, with 75 points, went to the Jen-Cor team. The second and third place teams donated their cash winnings back to the host Rotary Club of Ottawa – Stittsville while the ﬁrst place West Ottawa Rotary team pledged to donate its winnings to Rotary’s campaign to eliminate polio in the world. The West Ottawa Rotary team was not among the top four teams halfway through the night. After ﬁve rounds, it was the Brigadier Generals team which led with 38 points, followed by the Jen-Cor squad with 36 points. The Hawaiian-themed team was right up there as well in third place with 35 points while the More Popcorn Please team was fourth with 34 points. After nine rounds of trivia, with only one round of ten questions to go, the Hawaiian-themed team led with 69 points, with the West Ottawa Rotary team right on their heels with 68 points. Jen-Cor was third at this point with 65 points while the Brigadier Generals and More Popcorn Please teams were tied for fourth place with 63 points. Part of the fun of the evening is the team names, of course. Among the other teams were The Newbies, Brains United, Cold Wolfs, Les Quizerables, 8 Shades of Grey and Westend Shufﬂe.

And once again this year, the trivia proved challenging and interesting, with questions varying in difﬁculty and topic. So there was “Name the 2012 movie about the Iranian hostage crisis” (answer – Argo); “What is the plastic sheath at the end of shoelaces called?” (answer – aglet); “Who was the only actor who appeared in both The Magniﬁcent Seven and The Dirty Dozen movies?” (answer – Charles Bronson); “Who wrote the novel Jaws? (answer – Peter Benchley); “What did George Crumb invent in 1853?” (answer – potato chips); “How many counties are there in Prince Edward Island?” (answer – three); and “Whose image is on Canada’s $100 bill? (answer – Sir Robert Borden). And lots more! Once again this year, the Royal Bank team was on hand and before the questions began, the team tried its time-worn ploy, offering bribe cookies and goodies to the judges who again this year were optometrist Dr. Corrine Motluk, Stittsville News EMC editor John Curry and city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri. Decked out this year in red hockey jerseys, the Royal Bank team had a lot of fun but in the end, they ﬁnished last in the ﬁeld of 20 teams. Rotary Club of Ottawa – Stittsville president Carolyn Clark, in her welcoming remarks, recounted some of the projects supported by the Rotary Club over the years, including sending Shelter Boxes to disaster areas, helping build a gazebo at a women’s shelter, participating in the Rotary’s campaign to end polio in the world and establishing a library in a community in Uganda. “You are helping us have fun while doing good,” she told those in attendance at this annual Trivia Challenge Night. Steve Hunter of the Rotary Club served as the MC/announcer of questions again this year. Leo Maiorino of the Rotary Club handled the sale of “mulligans” (three for $5) which allow a team to record a correct answer without knowing the answer and also looked after a rafﬂe for beer glasses. There were also numerous “round” and door prizes given away throughout the evening. Members of the Rotary Club and volunteers made sure that the popcorn bowls on each table were replenished when needed. They also served the half-time pizza. Sandy Durocher looked after the theme music and other visual and musical clues associated with some of the questions. The Stittsville District Lions Club, which donated use of the hall for the event, looked after the bar for the evening.

Candlelight vigil celebrates three lives John Curry
EMC news - It was dark but there was the light of hope. It was sad but there was celebration in the air. It was tragic but filled with memories that made three lives memorable. It was a time to remember. It was a time to grieve. But mostly it was a time to acknowledge three wonderful lives who impacted others while among us and who have left a void now that they are gone. It was the candlelight vigil to remember but mainly to celebrate the lives of the late Alison Easton and her children, ten year old Alex Corchis and six year old Katie Corchis. And in keeping with the wishes of husband and father Jon Corchis, who asked that the vigil be one of celebration, not grief, that’s what it was – a time of remembering the special lives that were Alex and Katie Corchis and Alison Easton. About 150 people gathered at the southeast front corner of the new arena at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex (GRC) for the 7 p.m. vigil last
Saturday, Feb. 23. With the three flags in front of the GRC flying at half mast on this mild winter’s evening, battery powered tea lights obtained from Veterans Affairs were distributed to those attending as they gathered together – friends, school mates, emergency responders, community residents – all there for one purpose, to express grief, offer support and remember and celebrate the lives lost. MC Georgie GoshamHamer welcomed all who attended, noting that Stittsville is a community based on the foundation of family, a base that usually results in happy events but sometimes ends in tragedy. She said that the candlelight vigil was being held to honour and remember three precious lives that left the community too soon. Rev. Jane McCaig of St. Thomas Anglican Church, in her remarks at the vigil, noted that the community was grieving from the Jan. 14 deaths of the two children and their mother, experiencing bewilderment, sadness and grieving. After three candles were
lit on a table covered with a white cloth, candles meant to represent the light that Alex and Katie and Alison brought into the world, Rev. McCaig shared some of the comments which were made at the funeral service which was held in Windsor. She noted that Alison Easton was a patient and attentive mother who accumulated three university degrees and was going to be a cordon bleu chef until the profession’s early hours dissuaded her from the goal; that Alex loved jiu jitsu and sailing; and that Katie was a “very social little girl” who said hello to everyone. Rev. McCaig said that the tragic deaths of these three is not their legacy but rather the love that they showed to others in their lives is their real legacy. It was Stittsville Public School principal Michael Malek, who was the children’s principal, who offered glimpses of the lives of Alex and Katie Corchis and the impact that they had on others. Alex was a creative child who cared for others, he said. “In truth Alex was a role
model,” he said, reading excerpts from letters that his classmates wrote to him after his death to say goodbye to him. He was remembered for his ideas and for his riddles. As for Katie, principal Malek said that the kindergarten student was creative and a leader. “Katie was a fashion plate,” he said, describing her love of wearing glitter and sparkles but also noting that she was an inquisitive child as well. “To Alex and Katie, your memory will live on with us forever,” Mr. Malek said. Matt Page, an instructor at Cooligan Martial Arts and Fitness in Stittsville where both Alex and his father Jon experienced martial arts, described Alex as one of the most interesting and fascinating students there, always asking questions and revealing his incredible imagination. Calling Alex a genuinely kind and thoughtful child, he said that he was helpful both to his instructors and to his martial arts classmates. At the vigil, Theresa Qadri read what she had written about the situation, focused
on the phrase “Stay strong and go on.” City of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri, who helped organize the candlelight vigil, acknowledged the sadness and grief felt by members of the community. He urged community members to embrace one another while remembering Alex, Katie and Alison. Following the half hour ceremony, many stayed around afterwards, chatting in small groups. The Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre had representatives on hand at the vigil to provide any counseling needed as well as to offer support information to assist those in need going forward. Katie and Alex Conchis and their mother Alison Easton died in a double murder/suicide in Stittsville on Monday, Jan. 14. An obituary notice for ten year old Alex Corchis described him as a younger with an “impeccable memory” who enjoyed reading and recounting stories, playing with lego and Minecraft and visiting the park with friends. An obituary notice for six
year old Katie Corchis described her as a “vivacious young girl with varied interests that included Kindermusic, swimming, skating and dance.” It described her as a youngster who lit up a room with her love of dressing up and her pretend tea parties. Alison Easton, the mother of the two murdered children who committed suicide, was described in her obituary notice as “devoted and loving mother.” As a stay-at-home mom, she was an active member of her school and neighbourhood communities and was involved in her children’s sports activities. This tragic muder/suicide rocked the Stittsville community. And there was a community desire at the time to hold a vigil of some sort for the family in order 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. That’s why the vigil did not happen until last Saturday, Feb. 23.
Main Street Community Services serves 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
in part of the former Stittsville Public School facility (now Frederick Banting Alternate Program school) on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville.

Town hall meeting about RWC Crusaders Special to the News
EMC sports - It’s been two years now for the RWC Crusaders competitive hockey program. This was a two year pilot project for competitive hockey involving the Richmond Minor Hockey Association and the West Carleton Minor Hockey Association and approved by the governing bodies, District 4 and the Ottawa District Minor Hockey Association. Now it is time for feedback from parents about the program prior to the upcoming annual general meetings for these two minor hockey associations. A town hall meeting to provide an opportunity for input about the RWC Crusaders program will be held this coming Monday, March 4 starting at 7 p.m. in the upstairs hall at the Johnny Leroux Stittsville Community Arena in Stittsville. There will be a presentation made about the RWC Crusaders program, followed by a question and answer session. All parents involved with the Richmond Munster Minor Hockey Association, the West Carleton Minor Hockey Association and the RWC Competitive Hockey Club are urged to attend. RWC Crusaders teams, as competitive teams, play at least two games a week and have at least one practice. There are also periodic off-ice training or class sessions. Fundraising is usually part of a competitive team’s agenda in order to supplement the regular registration fee in order to provide for extra programming that a competitive team might undergo. The Richmond Munster Minor Hockey Association (RMMHA) is one of the two minor hockey associations involved in this RWC Crusaders pilot project. The RWC Crusaders pilot project is one of the programs supported by the RMMHA in which RMMHA players join players from the West Carleton Minor Hockey Association to form competitive teams.
Golden tournament for Hornets Special to the News
championship final by recovering from their opening game loss in the tournament and going on a winning streak. After a snowy drive to play in the AA-division in the 2013 Mike O’Connor Memorial Basketball Tournament in Gloucester on the weekend of Feb. 8-10, the Hornets had to battle back several times in their Friday night opening game. But in the end, it was a 29-27 victory for the host Gloucester Wolverines No. 2 team – not a good start in the tournament for the Goulbourn
Hornets Midget Girls No. 2 team. But on the Saturday, the Hornets defeated the Hawkesbury Selects 51-25 to ensure a place in the tournament’s semi-finals. In semi-final play on the Sunday morning, the Hornets faced Ottawa South. This was the team to whom the Hornets lost in the gold medal game at the Chris Paulin Tournament in December. This time, though, the Hornets emerged victorious, leading throughout the game to
69 Neil Ave
win by a 35-29 score. This semi-final victory set up the championship game against the Gloucester Wolverines No. 2 squad which had beaten the Hornets on the Friday night. In this tournament, the Goulbourn Hornets coaches were impressed with the teamwork and energy displayed by the team throughout the tournament. Each player for the Hornets contributed on the score sheet at some point during the tournament.
LAST CHANCE !
Wide selection in all styles!
It’s our way of saying thank you!
EMC sports - The 2013 Mike O’Connor Memorial Basketball Tournament in Gloucester proved to be a golden experience for the Goulbourn Hornets Midget Girls No. 2 team. The Hornets used an overpowering performance in the first three quarters of the championship game against the host Gloucester Wolverines to take the championship game by a 45-42 score, capturing the gold medals. This championship game was a re-match of the Hornets opening game of the tournament when they lost 29-27 to the Wolverines No. 2 squad. Wanting to avenge this Friday night loss opening the tournament, the Hornets played the three best quarters of their season in building up a 20 point lead in this championship game. This was the result of superb offensive play combined with a shut-down defense. After building up this 20 point lead in the first three quarters of the championship game, the Hornets then had to withstand a strong comeback by the Gloucester Wolverines, setting up an exciting and close finish. But the Hornets held on for the 45-42 win and the gold medals. These come on the heels of the silver medals which the Hornets earned at the Chris Paulin Tournament in December, giving the Hornets two consecutive medal finishes in tournaments.

Voters deserve chance to weigh in on Wynne
remier Kathleen Wynne came to town last week, offering Ottawans their first chance to take the measure of Ontarioâ€™s new leader. That first impression may be important, as the province may very well have an election on its hands this spring, something that should be embraced, albeit grudgingly, by the electorate. Why embraced? It comes down to the fact Wynne is looking to take Ontario in
a fundamentally different direction from the one we were following under Dalton McGuinty, despite the claims made by Tim Hudak and the Progressive Conservatives to the contrary. That fact alone means voters need the opportunity to approve a new mandate. McGuinty, while he focused on deficit reduction to a certain extent following his 2011 election victory, spent much time looking to implement and expand programs
such as full-day kindergarten. He will also be remembered as the premier who introduced the feed-in tariff program, harmonized the provincial sales tax and gave a 30 per cent rebate to postsecondary students. He was a premier focused on programs and ways the province could help out its citizens. Wynne, based on the speech from the throne delivered on Feb. 19, is looking to focus the provinceâ€™s efforts on â€œfiscal responsibil-
ity, economic growth and increased employment.â€? In practice, this doesnâ€™t need to be a drastic departure from what came before: FIT was designed to boost the economy, helping students can lead to more jobs and freezing teachers salaries is one way of taking fiscal responsibility. But the premier undoubtedly brings her own ideas to her new office and those ideas deserve to be vetted by voters, who should have the
chance to compare Wynneâ€™s plan with those being offered by both the PCs and the New Democratic Party. Weâ€™ll have a much better idea of what the Liberals are all about under Wynne in the coming weeks when the budget is presented at Queenâ€™s Park. It should provide a detailed account of how her government plans to reach its new goals. Andrea Horwathâ€™s NDP has pledged to support the minority Liberals on the speech from the throne, so
Wynne will survive to table the budget. Itâ€™s better that we head to the polls sooner than later, as the province is facing a number of challenges that really canâ€™t wait to be addressed: the decline of manufacturing and the transition of the wider economy, deteriorating infrastructure, rising health care costs, all under the shadow of a massive deficit and ballooning debt. It would be much better for voters to choose from among the latest visions for Ontarioâ€™s future, rather than be stuck with a new path chosen by Liberal party faithful.
Prime downtown property CHARLES GORDON Funny Town
hose were wonderful scandals coming out of the Senate, with people allegedly claiming expenses they didnâ€™t deserve because they didnâ€™t live where they said they did, and so on. For a while, there was the faint hope that the thing would finally be abolished, but for various reasons too constitutional to mention, that is very unlikely to happen. Too bad, as it would free up a beautiful piece of real estate in the heart of downtown. Still, it is pleasant, although maybe not too realistic, to consider alternate uses for the Senate chamber, once the Senators have made their deliberate move to the exit. Many years ago I proposed in print that the Senate chamber would make an excellent basketball court. The dimensions are about right, there is parking nearby, plenty of security and the visitorsâ€™ gallery has lots of good seats. You might ask, why basketball, when hockey is our national sport? Thatâ€™s a good question. The difficulty is that the dimensions of a hockey rink are too large for the space available. Further, the taxpayer might balk at installing ice-making machinery in Centre Block. Finally, where would they put the Zamboni? For these reasons, basketball made more sense. However, the proposal was somehow not seized upon by public officials. Also there was a complete lack of public excitement and eventually, Scotiabank Place was built. Too bad, because it would have made a nice basketball court and years of embarrassing scandal could have been avoided. So we move on. What other uses could be made of the space now occupied by the Senate?
Well, what about the National Portrait Gallery? Youâ€™ll remember that it was once intended to move into the old United States embassy building across from Parliament Hill, then the government changed and the museum faded from sight. We could use a good portrait gallery. The Senate would have lots of space for it, because remember there is more to the Senate than just the chamber. Once the Senate is abolished, all those senatorsâ€™ offices will be vacant, along with the Senate committee rooms and the place where the senators store their overcoats and shuffleboard equipment. Acres and acres of portraits could go in there. Some of them could even be of senators. The ones who live in Ottawa should not be hard to find to take their pictures. Even some ones who donâ€™t officially live in Ottawa might, unaccountably, be close by. For the generations yet unborn, we would want a permanent photographic record of those who graced the institution and explaination of what they did. Some might oppose putting the Portrait Gallery in the Senate on the grounds that our need for historical portraiture will be covered in the conversion of the Museum of Civilization to the Canadian Museum of History. So other possible uses need to be explored. The suggestion that the Senate be turned into a downtown casino will not be dignified with a reply. However, there is nothing to stop the Senate from becoming what most of Canada is becoming â€“ a condominium. Some of those offices suites could make nice apartments, once they are thoroughly cleaned to get rid of the smell of pork. The Senate chamber could be made into a party room, instead of a political party room. The idea certainly has merit, since having more people live downtown has long been one of the cityâ€™s goals. It could help put more people onto Sparks Street, as the condo owners emerge from Parliament Hill in search of somewhere to party, or at least get a sausage. The big lawn would be an attraction, the view is very nice. All that needs to be done is to get the neighbours in the House of Commons to keep it down.

Letter about rendering Editor: On page 47 of the Feb. 21, 2013 edition of the Stittsville News EMC, between two articles describing various aspects of a proposed Caivan development relating to the Western Developments Lands in Richmond is “…an artist’s rendering of Richmond’s key Perth Street/McBean Street intersection showing what the Richmond of the future may look like as development takes place in the community.” I am concerned that the casual reader may perceive that this artistic rendering is part
of the Caivan proposal, which it is not. As you are aware, the artistic rendering was produced by LRK, a consulting agency from New Jersey that Mattamy Homes hired to participate in various aspects of the Richmond Community Design Plan (CDP) exercise. I would also note in passing that LRK is listed in the Richmond CDP, dated July 2010, as assisting city staff in the preparation of Richmond’s CDP. Furthermore, this is one of several artistic renderings
prepared by LRK which were undertaken to demonstrate to Richmondites what the Richmond of the future could look like if private parties made significant financial investments in Richmond. LRK presented several artistic renderings of this nature at various public meetings as part of the CDP exercise. However, none of LRK’s renderings were components of Mattamy’s or Caivan’s proposed development of the Western Development Lands. Doug Arnold Richmond

Special to the News
EMC news - Positive energy, vibrant colours, happiness and light. These are qualities found in the work of Richmond artist Elena Khomoutova. Anyone who has ever admired one of her paintings could agree that they exude a feeling of positive energy. This in turn gives the viewer a feeling of enchantment which has probably never been felt before. These feelings come from the vibrant colours which she uses to create her paintings. All of Elena’s paintings emanate happiness, whether it’s a painting of a landscape depicting some of Ottawa’s old architecture or of teenagers playing hockey on the frozen Rideau Canal. She attributes this happiness to what she calls painting with light. “Light is universal energy that brings to different people different things,” Elena says. “But you need to believe in the light in order to benefit from the paintings.” A lot of the inspiration for her art comes from her husband Alexander but she also has another source of inspiration – her budgie Gosha who often sits on her shoulder while she paints, giving her input. Elena Khomoutova, who was born in Russia, began painting at the age of six. She continued to the fine art faculty at Moscow University, completing her art education in 1985. A few years later, in 1992, she moved to Canada with her husband Alexander to take advantage of opportunities to further her career. This proved to be true. Indeed, since moving to Canada,
Your Community Newspaper
Richmond artist Elena Khomoutova, left, and her husband Alexander celebrate Elena’s art featuring butterflies. Elena has had numerous solo art shows and has participated in various group art shows. She has also won a number of awards. In 1998, Elena was chosen as the official artist for the Ottawa Senators Hockey Club. Since then, the Club has published 9,899 lithographs of her work. Her original artwork is currently hanging in private and corporate collections in many countries including Canada, the United States, Italy, France and Germany. Most recently she has been painting Montreal scenes
for display at a new gallery. She is also hopeful that more greeting cards will be made from these scenes. Last year, Elena had 34 of her designs published on greeting cards, ten of which featured Alexander’s photos. Another recent work by Elena entitled “7 Wishes” was designed to assist the viewer in achieving total life balance. “The seven butterflies on the painting are symbols of transformation and light which brings you a pure energy and balance,” says Alexander. Elena and Alexander move
to their current home in Richmond in 2007 and they could not be any happier in the community in which they live. “People in Richmond are very open and we have a lot of friends here,” she says. “When you go outside and you pass people on the street, they say hello even if they don’t know you. If you go to other communities, it is not like this at all,” says Elena.

Second in all of Canada
EMC news - Top team in Ottawa out of 18 teams. Inspiring. Second in all of Canada out of 1070 teams. Awesome. What an accomplishment for the ten-member team from Stittsville’s Grace Baptist Church of Ottawa which raised $13,698 (and the amount is still growing) for the “Coldest Night of the Year” walk to support the homeless which took place in downtown Ottawa last Saturday evening, Feb. 23. And there’s more! The team, named “Walking in Grace,” placed third in Canada for the number of donors enlisted, namely 313. And team member Pierre Cyr who personally raised $5,285 for the team placed seventh among top fundraisers nationally. He was also fourth nationally for most donors with 111. It is no wonder that this national walk, which took place in 39 cities across Canada this year, excelled its one million dollar fundraising goal, raising over $1.3 million altogether. And in Ottawa, where the fundraising for this year’s walk is going to Jericho Road Christian Ministries, the $50,000 goal was exceeded, with over $52,000 raised. Members of the “Walking in Grace” team from the
Grace Baptist Church of Ottawa which is located on Huntley Road south of Stittsville were Pierre Cyr, Gerry Theoret, Roy Lawrence, Diane Theoret, Loretta White, Kent Boughton, Anne Minion, Ruth McFadden, John Townesend and team captain Marion Payne. Sue Gauthier also walked with the team but was not registered. Team members Kent Boughton and Loretta White completed the 10K walk while the other team members finished the 5K walk. The walk passed by Parliament Hill and went through the Byward Market area. Participants all wore yellow toques, which not only kept heads warm but also created an awareness of the walk as the lineup of walkers, all wearing yellow toques, moved along the sidewalks in downtown Ottawa, drawing attention from onlookers. The team began with a $4,000 fundraising goal for this year’s “Coldest Night of the Year’ walk but quickly upped it to $6,000 and then kept increasing the goal, first to $10,000 and then to $12,000. And the team still exceeded this goal. A number of businesses in Stittsville and the area donated to the team, helping with the fundraising efforts for this “Coldest Night of the Year” walk. These included Auto Searchers (Stittsville), Vos
Trailers (Stittsville), Myers Kanata Chev Buick GMC Inc. (Kanata), Carleton Refrigeration, Heating & Air Conditioning (Carleton Place), Jo Jo’s Pizza (Stittsville), KNT Nails (Stittsville), Jask Salon & Day Spa (Kanata), real estate agent Bruce Brown of Keller Williams (Ottawa) and Takaki Automotive Corporation (Ottawa). The “Coldest Night of the Year’ walk which raises money for the hungry, homeless and hurting in a community began in Toronto in 2011 and last year spread to 18 cities with over 3,000 walkers. This year walks were held in 39 cities including Ottawa where the funds are being directed to support Jericho Road Christian Ministries. This is an organization that provides homes and assistance to Ottawa’s poor, addicted and mentally ill. It is a non-profit, non-denominational Christian agency that works with Ottawa’s homeless. A team from Grace Baptist Church of Ottawa in Stittsville participated in last year’s initial “Coldest Night of the Year’ walk in Ottawa, raising $2,000. The team adopted the name “Walking in Grace” in the realization that everyone in life has made bad choices and but for the grace of God, team members could very well be among the homeless. The walk provides partici-
Members of the “Walking in Grace” team which took part in the “Coldest Night of the Year” walk in downtown Ottawa last Saturday, Feb. 23 and who are holding a fundraising thermometer which shows the amount raised by the team, $13,698 as of last Sunday, Feb. 24, making the team the top fundraising team in Ottawa and the second place fundraising team out of 1070 teams in the national event, are, front row, from left, team captain Marion Payne, Gerry Theoret, Diane Theoret and Ruth McFadden; and, back row, from left, Anne Minion, Kent Boughton and Roy Lawrence. Missing from the photo are team members Pierre Cyr, John Townesend and Loretta White. pants with the opportunity to experience a hint of the challenges faced by those who are homeless by walking for a while on the streets of downtown Ottawa on a winter’s night. Jericho Road Christian Ministries receives no government funding to help with its work caring for the homeless, poor and mentally ill. Fund-
raising events like this “Coldest Night of the Year’ walk and donations from churches and individuals are what provide the resources for Jericho Road to carry on with its work. Currently across Canada, there are more than 150,000 experiencing homelessness. In the “Coldest Night of the Year” walk, teams of walk-
ers in 39 cities across Canada walked in support of agencies in each particular city that offer care and support for those who are hungry, suffering and homeless. The Grace Baptist Church of Ottawa is located on Huntley Road just south of Fallowfield Road between Stittsville and Richmond.

Winners in Peopleâ€™s Choice Business Awards EMC news - Businesses in Stittsville, Richmond and Munster all took home honours in the 14th annual Peopleâ€™s Choice Business Awards presented by the Kanata Chamber of Commerce. Over 18,000 online votes were cast for this yearâ€™s awards, a new record. These votes covered awards in various categories in three geographic areas â€“ Goulbourn (including Stittsville), West Carleton and Kanata. The awards for Professional Services Business of the Year and Technology Business of the Year as well as Citizen of the Year are selected from across the whole Goulbourn/ West Carleton/Kanata area. Mark Saunders and his wife Angela Grant of Saunders Farm received the Award for Tourism Business of the Year in Goulbourn. Mr. Saunders, in his acceptance remarks, noted that the Saunders Farm journey had begun back in 1976 when his parents bravely launched something different, the Saunders Strawberry Farm. He said that Saunders Farm, now known for its Halloween offerings, its mazes and its other attractions, is carrying on the family tradition started by his parents. He said that the bottom line in business is not just the business numbers but also involves how a business makes an impact on the community. â€œScaring is caring,â€? Mr. Saunders said as a motto for how Saunders Farm operates. Napoliâ€™s CafĂŠ of Stittsville won again this year in the Restaurant of the Year in Goulbourn category. Coowner Bassel Khalil, in his remarks, thanked all the restaurantâ€™s customers for their loyalty over the years.
Stittsville Sobeys won in the Large Business of the Year in Goulbourn category. Owner Tim LaPlante and his wife Sandy were on hand to accept the award, praising the efforts of their 200 staff members and the loyalty of their customers. Spotlight Hair Studio and Spa of Richmond won for Health & Wellness Business of the Year in Goulbourn. Owner Shauna Kirkham, in her remarks at the event, noted that it had been one year ago to the very day that the decision had been taken to change the face of the business and move to becoming a full day spa. The changes involved extensive renovations including a major addition as the 18 year old business added a spa to its offerings. New to the winnerâ€™s circle this year was Natural Food Pantry in the Grant Crossing shopping area on Hazeldean Road in Stittsville which captured the award for Retail Business of the Year in Goulbourn. A family owned and operated business that has operated in the Ottawa area for over 30 years with three locations now including this new one in Stittsville. The Natural Food Pantry has a bakery on Iber Road in Stittsville which produces fresh baked, gluten free products. Another new Stittsville business which walked off with an award this year is the Complete Hockey Development Centre on Iber Road which received the award for Small Business of the Year in Goulbourn. His hockey training centre, which opened last year, has its own mini-ice surface on which training and three-on-three hockey takes place. Winning the award for New Business of the Year in Goul-
bourn is Kungfu Bistro at the Stittsville Corners shopping area at the corner of Carp Road and Hazeldean Road. Kungfu Bistro marketing manager Margarita Chen, who accepted the award along with her husband Tony Chen, who is the chef at the restaurant, explained that the Kungfu name, which indicating support for the martial arts community, is also applicable to food and the restaurant business in that Kungfu refers to a skill that is honed over time. Her husband Tony has developed his food preparation skills with over 25 years experience in the restaurant business. The Stittsville Branch 618 of the Royal Canadian won the award for Community Supported/Non ProďŹ t Organization of the Year in Goulbourn. This was the ďŹ rst time that the Stittsville Legion had received this award. In the Citizen of the Year category, John Curry, editor of the Stittsville News EMC, was one of the three ďŹ nalists for the award. Two Citizen of the Year awards were presented this year, one going to Daniel Alfredsson of the Ottawa Senators and another to Kathleen Ellis, a member of the Rotary Club of Ottawa â€“ Kanata Sunrise. Daniel Alfredsson has been involved with organizations encouraging youth to be active and also with the mental health initiatives of the Royal Ottawa.

Safety in the home presentation at ‘Wise Guys and Gals Drop-In’ Special to the News
EMC news - Safety in the home, fall prevention and fitness are going to be the topics at the March 11th “Wise Guys and Gals Drop-In” in Stittsville. Physiotherapist Michelle Bezanson will be on hand to make a presentation on these topics. And, of course, like at all “Wise Guys and Gals Drop-In” sessions, there will be lots of coffee and home baked sweets.
22 Stittsville News EMC - Thursday, February 28, 2013
All seniors in Stittsville and area are most welcome to attend this free “Wise Guys and Gals Drop-In” session on Monday, March 11, running from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. It is being held at the Community Bible Church at 1600 Stittsville Main Street beside the Stittsville post office. For more information about the “Wise Guys and Gals Drop-In” sessions, check out the website www.cbcstittsville.com or call 613836-2606.
EMC news - Snow is a fact of life in winter. And clearing streets sometimes requires trucking the snow away. Hence the need for municipal snow disposal sites. At present snow disposal sites in the Stittsville/Kanata area are located at the works yard on Maple Grove Road and at the southeast corner of Carp Road and highway 417. Both are anticipated to close which is why the city of Ottawa has now initiated a Class Environmental Assessment (EA) to study the environmental impact of establishing a new snow disposal facility in the area. Snow from Kanata Lakes, Kanata South, Bridlewood, Kanata North and Stittsville will be trucked to this new site. This new West District Snow Disposal Facility will require about 357,000 cubic metres of storage space. Most
years, only about half of this capacity will be required but there will be years when more will be needed. The EA has looked at various sites in the Kanata, West Carleton, Stittsville and Goulbourn areas, with the evaluation criteria including transportation (50 percent), property considerations (15 percent), technical and environmental considerations (25 percent) and economics (10 percent). Sites ranged from the Bradley Side Road in West Carleton to Riddell Drive in Kanata to March Road at Dunrobin Road to Flewellyn Road in Goulbourn. The preferred location identified in this phase one of the EA as outlined at an open house at the Goulbourn Town Hall at Stanley’s Corners on Wednesday, Feb. 20 is located at 2125 Carp Road which is a 67 acre (25 hectare) site running between Westbrook Road and highway 417 just west of Carp Road (where the Irving gas bar is located).
This site scored the second highest according to the evaluation criteria used but has been identified as the preferred location after the highest scoring location was rejected because the city does not want to rezone it for such a usage. This preferred site does have challenges such as offsite drainage concerns and its status as a groundwater recharge area. The snow disposal facility will be an engineered facility complete with truck entrance, a melt water pond, a storm water pond, a berm or fence for noise mitigation and maintaining existing trees on the site and even adding trees where required. Landscaping including visual screening has been identified as a priority in developing the site. There will be a low permeability liner beneath both the dump pad and the melt water pond to protect against seepage of salts and other contaminants into the groundwater system. The melt water runoff from the snow pile will be directed to a lined pond where sediment, oils and other contaminants will be removed. Existing off-site drainage problems such as roadside drainage may have to be addressed when developing this site. The truck entrance to the site will be off Westbrook Road, probably lining up with Walgreen Road, although this could change somewhat depending on the grade levels and sight lines on Westbrook Road. The west portion of the property may become the site for a compatible use such as the location of a city works yard. However, the use of this west portion will depend on the extent of the need for retention of the site’s groundwater recharge features. This will be determined in phase two of the EA process. This phase two will see the presentation of a preferred design for the snow disposal facility. This will lead to a site plan and zoning bylaw amendment to permit a snow disposal facility at the site. The site is already zoned industrial but needs the snow disposal facility use added to its list of approved uses. It is expected that the site plan, rezoning and other requirements will be completed this fall. It is expected, though, that use of this new snow storage facility will be two winters away. For more information about this proposed new snow disposal facility or to comment on the proposal, please contact Ravi Mehta, the project manager, at 613-580-2424, ext. 21712 or via email at Ravi.Mehta@ottawa.ca.

Shelly Cao ranks as the best out of 3,855 in North America John Curry
EMC news - Shelly Cao is good at math. Just how good? How about the best out of 3,855 grade ten students in North America who are involved with the math program at Kumon, known as the worldâ€™s largest after-school math and reading academic enrichment program. Thatâ€™s exactly what she is. Kumon North America honours all students who are working above grade level with a special award. This year, for instance, the Stittsville Kumon Center had 37 students receive this â€œAdvanced Student Honour Rollâ€? certificate. Each student is ranked with all other students in North America including Mexico by their school grade and the level that they have achieved at Kumon. Shelly ranked first out of 3,855 grade ten students in North America. Awesome! Merilee Clarke, a longtime instructor at the Stittsville Kumon Center and now its owner with her husband John, notes that being ranked first in North America is a huge honour for a Kumon student. â€œThis is a huge honour for a Kumon student and not likely one we will have here in Stittsville again,â€? she writes in an email. Shelly, who is 15 years old, has just completed the Kumon Math Program which includes studying grade 12 and first year university math basics. Last year she completed the Kumon Reading Program. For completing each subject, she received from Kumon North America a mantle clock engraved with her name and the date of completion of the program. On Thursday, Feb. 21, John and Merilee Clarke, instructors at the Stittsville Kumon Center, hosted a pizza party at which they presented Shelly with her second mantle clock, this one for completing the Kumon math Pro-
gram. They also presented Shelly with a framed certificate and a bouquet of flowers in honour of her achievements at Kumon. Shelly, who has studied in the Kumon program for almost five years now, is still going to be studying at Kumon, working further on her math studies by taking the advanced levels available at Kumon called the X levels. These levels allow students to choose from different mathematical fields to help in their later university studies. The Stittsville Kumon Center recently marked its 20th anniversary of helping children in the community develop their math and reading skills. The Stittsville Kumon Center was first opened 20 years ago by Bonny Junkins in the downstairs hall at St. Thomas Anglican Church. Two years later, she brought on Merilee Clarke as a teacher of the reading program. James Patrick continued the work of the original owner Bonny Junkins, developing the Kumon Center in Stittsville dedicated to the success of the children involved. Merilee Clarke and her husband John purchased the Stittsville Kumon franchise three years ago, relocating from its previous premises in the Ultramar Plaza on Stittsville Main Street to its current home at the Stittsville Shopping Centre (Shoppers Drug Mart plaza). Thatâ€™s when John became part of the Stittsville Kumon team. Founded in Japan in 1958, the Kumon after-school math and reading programs use an individualized approach that helps children develop a solid command of math and reading skills. Through daily practice and mastery of materials, students increase in confidence, improve concentration and develop better study skills. There are Kumon Centers in 47 countries around the world today.

The Glen Scottish Restaurant & Pub turns 25 John Curry email@example.com
EMC news - The Glen Scottish Restaurant & Pub has been a fish and chips haven for 25 years now. And that’s why the restaurant now located at the Jackson Trails Plaza at the corner of Hazeldean Road and Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville is known for its famous fish and chips virtually across Canada as well as on the other side of the Atlantic. The menu has grown over the years as the restaurant marks its 25th anniversary this Friday, March 1, with salads, meat, steak and kidney pies, haggis, red pepper chicken gluten-free stir fry, burgers, sandwiches and more, but its secret of success remains its haddock prepared in a variety of ways. You can choose your batter, your tartar sauce and the fish, with the classic battered and classic breaded being the ongoing favourites. Indeed, The Glen Scottish Restaurant & Pub was voted to have the Ottawa area’s best fish and chips in a CTV Ottawa competition in Aug. 2011. Still a family owned and operated restaurant after 25 years, The Glen Scottish Restaurant & Pub had very modest beginnings in 1988 when Kathleen McConville and her brother John McConville took over a small restaurant at the Glen Cairn Plaza on Hazeldean Road in Kanata. The initial plan was for Kathleen and John and one staff member to run the restaurant while John’s wife Luciana would stay home and watch the children. They slowly changed it from its breakfast/lunch focus emphasizing hot dogs, pizza and the like to a restaurant that featured fish and chips, the traditional food of the Scottish homeland of Kathleen, Luciana and John. All three readily reveal their Scottish heritage as they all have noticeable Scottish accents. Luciana says that people think that the three of them all sound alike but she doesn’t think so herself. By September that first year, good old “word of mouth” had increased business and John and Kathleen had to recruit Luciana to help at the restaurant. And they have been together ever since, with now James Clarke, Kathleen’s son, involved and

Kathleen said that the initial idea was for The Glen to be a little local family neighbourhood pub, along the lines of the friendly model portrayed on the long-running television series Coronation Street. Kathleen points out that when they opened The Glen Scottish Restaurant & Pub, taking over from the previous restaurant operator, they did not even realize that it was located in Glen Cairn. While many assumed that The Glen was named after Glen Cairn, that was not the case. It was named The Glen after a hotel called The Glen that was familiar to John McConville. Kathleen admits that they all had to teach themselves how to run a restaurant. She says that they had no clue what was involved and in her case, she had never even poured coffee for someone. But right from the start, the plan was to have a restaurant that featured fish and chips and they slowly transformed the restaurant to this vision. This has been the restaurant’s secret of success, both initially and even today the restaurant’s fish and chips. It is all made from scratch when ordered and features, as Kathleen says, “freshness, quality and quantity.” It’s all made using John McCon-
ville’s recipe which has been the same since day one. The tartar sauce is all made at the restaurant, featuring several different flavours including traditional, hot, dill and seafood sauce. There are also flavoured batters – Cajun spice and coconut in addition to the classic battered and classic breaded ones. And for those who are health conscious, there’s also a poached fish option. The restaurant prides itself on providing good food and good service and that’s why people keep coming back. Indeed, some of today’s customers grew up going to the restaurant as children. The restaurant is family friendly that way, with a special kids’ menu. Salads are available for those who prefer fish and salad rather than fish and chips. Kathleen admits that fish and chips may sound unhealthy and greasy but points out that people return to the restaurant every week just for the fish and chips. It’s that good! “It’s quality, consistency and atmosphere – it’s a nice atmosphere here,” Kathleen says in explaining the longevity and success of The Glen Scottish Restaurant & Pub. “I feel we are a team here,” she adds, noting that the restaurant has a staff of about 50
now. And some of the staff is long-serving, such as June Brown with 22 years service and Celine Aris with 15 years there. Both are considered just like family now, Kathleen says. It was, of course, a big move when The Glen Scottish Restaurant & Pub relocated from its longtime Glen Cairn location to its current location at the Jackson Trails Plaza in Stittsville three years ago. It meant moving from premises which accommodated 120 people including a small patio to the current premises which can handle 260 diners when the 68-seat patio is included. It is also a self-standing building with lots of parking available, and with two distinct rooms, it provides flexibility. So The Glen can have one of its popular, sold-out quiz nights on one side of the restaurant while the other room can continue as a restaurant and pub with its televisions going. The two rooms also help in hosting private bookings such as christenings and weddings. There is just more space for more people. While the move has proven immensely successful, concerns over frequent bus service for staff to the site and also a lack of visibility since the building is not right at the corner of Stittsville Main
Street and Hazeldean Road do continue to present challenges for the restaurant. But customers continue to come from all over – Embrun, Perth, Brockville and more locally. The restaurant is open seven days a week and one of the family members – Kathleen, Luciana and John McConville and James Clarke – is always at the restaurant when it is open. We always try to have a familiar face on hand for customers, says Kathleen. An indication of how the restaurant’s real draw is its food rather than its pub offerings which include malts and imported beers is the fact that The Glen assumed a “no smoking” policy half a year before “no smoking” became the law and there was never any negative reaction. That’s because “people come for the food,” is Kathleen’s explanation. “It’s a destination place, The Glen,” she adds, noting that there are even times when people coming home from travelling arrive at the restaurant direct from the airport, not even having gone home first. It’s like a home away from home. Kathleen, Luciana and John are pleased that James, Kathleen’s son, will be taking over the restaurant’s operation
in time. “That’s plan A, B and C,” Kathleen says about this succession planning. She notes that James has worked in all areas of the restaurant, is great with people and can motivate staff. But even when James assumes leadership of the restaurant, Kathleen admits that she, Luciana and John will always be around, perhaps not as much hands-on as at present, but still there. One ongoing dream for the McConvilles and The Glen is to open a second location, probably in the east end of Ottawa. It all revolves around finding the right location. So far, there’s nothing definite on this front. Right now, The Glen is focused on celebrating its 25th anniversary. It will begin marking the occasion by donating a portion of the restaurant’s proceeds from the weekend of March 1st to the staff of the Cheshire Cat Restaurant and Pub which suffered a devastating fire recently. But there will be more celebrations, planned for a week in mid-July. These may include a golf tournament and week-long activities such as a patio party, entertainment by pipes and drums and more. Stay tuned! The Glen Scottish Restaurant & Pub is supportive of giving back to the community and supports many fundraising efforts. The restaurant itself has been a strong supporter of Friends of Hospice Ottawa, including the hosting a fundraising quiz night. Reservations for The Glen Scottish Restaurant & Pub can be made by calling 613836-5622 or at www.theglen. ca. The restaurant can also be found on Facebook and on twitter@theglenpub. The Glen Scottish Restaurant & Pub also has a take-out menu which covers a wide range of food from salads to The Glen’s famous fish to meat, steak and kidney pies to burgers and sandwiches. The Glen Scottish Restaurant & Pub opens every day at 11:30 a.m. It closes on Mondays, Tuesdays and Sundays at 10 p.m. while it closes at 12 midnight on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

Stittsville Wellness offers workshops Euchre at Lions Hall Special to the News
Special to the News EMC news - The new Stittsville Wellness centre is offering a series of regular free introductory workshops. The ďŹ rst such workshop was held last Monday, Feb. 25, dealing with eating disorders. But there are going to be more of these free introductory workshops, open to everyone on a ďŹ rst come, ďŹ rst served basis. The Stittsville Wellness centre, located at 1347 Stittsville Main Street between Holy Spirit Catholic School and the Stittsville Lions Medical Building, aims to provide a variety of mental health services under one roof with a group of individual practitioners providing professional care to clients.
The goal is to provide a wide array of mental health services offered by certiďŹ ed health professionals. These services are offered to clients of all ages, focusing on well-being from a holistic perspective. At the initial workshop on Monday, Feb. 25, topics included what is an eating disorder, nutrition, who is affected by eating disorders, why eating disorders develop and signs of eating disorders. According to the National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders, almost 50 percent of individuals with an eating disorder will also meet the medical criteria for depression. Only one in ten people with an eating disorder, both men and women, will seek
and receive treatment. Thatâ€™s why community initiatives such as this free workshop at the Stittsville Wellness centre are so important in giving people an opportunity to gain knowledge and information about eating disorders at an introductory level. The workshop provided a proactive opportunity to learn about the signs and symptoms of eating disorders and how counseling can help. There will be other free workshops related to wellness coming up at Stittsville Wellness. To ďŹ nd out more, please visit the website http://www.stittsvillewellness.com/ or phone Stittsville Wellness (Rachel Vreeswijk, Hilary MacKenzie and Julie Clarke) at 613-435-9299.

Six tables were played at this euchre party, with Viviane Lester placing ďŹ rst overall at the end of the eveningâ€™s action. Jackie Ralph was second while Jean Howell was third. Larry Marlatt won the booby prize while Brenda Lee Lewis won one of the 50/50 draws (the one not won by Joe Borsa). The Stittsville District Lions Club hosts a euchre party at the Lions Hall on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville every Thursday. The doors open at 7 p.m. while play gets underway at 7:30 p.m. Everyone is most welcome to enjoy an evening of fun and fellowship playing euchre.
