EMC sports - Hockey and soccer are Alexandra Henshaw’s two sporting loves. She likes them both equally. “Out of 100, they are both 100,� she says when asked to compare her feelings for the two sports. The nine year old is currently enjoying her second year of playing hockey with the Goulbourn Girls Hockey

Association. And what does she enjoy about it? Well, quite simply, everything – the skating, trying to score, the passing, the exercise, and being part of a team. She also admits that she is competitive, saying quite simply: “I’m tough.� And the coach of her Goulbourn Rockets atom team, Rob Dunn, has lots of praise for Alexandra.

EMC news - It looks like Stittsville and Kanata will be in different federal ridings in the future. A report redrawing the province’s federal electoral map which includes Stittsville being in a riding called Rideau-Carleton while Kanata will be in a riding called Kanata-Carleton has now been submitted by the Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission for Ontario to the Speaker of the House of Commons. The report has been tabled, with Members of Parliament now having a chance to review the report and ďŹ le any objections to it in the coming weeks. Any concerns by members of the public about the proposed new electoral boundaries should be directed to the local MP. The proposed Rideau-Carleton riding in which Stittsville would be located has a current population of 89,522 which is 15.71 percent below the provincial quota or average of 106,213. This new riding would include Stittsville including the Fernbank lands, Richmond, Goulbourn and other areas such as the former Rideau township including Manotick, the former Osgoode township and the Riverside South area. The riding runs in a swath along the southern boundary of the city of Ottawa from Stittsville in the west to the city’s boundary in the east. One change from the initial proposal by the Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission was for Scotiabank Place to be included in the Kanata-Carleton riding rather

than be with the Rideau-Carleton riding. It had been argued before the Commission that Scotiabank Place, home of the Ottawa Senators, was closely associated with Kanata and hence it should be in the Kanata-Carleton riding. The boundary now proposed for the Rideau-Carleton riding in the area of Scotiabank Place would follow Huntmar Drive from highway 417 south to Maple Grove Road and then eastward along Maple Grove Road to the Carp River. The boundary would then follow the Carp River south to Terry Fox Drive. The Stittsville Village Association (SVA) had made a presentation to the Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission for Ontario supporting the locating of Stittsville in the riding that is now being called Rideau-Carleton, placing Stittsville in a different riding from Kanata. The SVA had also suggested that the name of the riding include the name Stittsville since with 27,000 residents it will be the largest population centre in the riding but the Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission for Ontario did not endorse this suggestion. The SVA did suggest that the Carp River rather than Terry Fox Drive from highway 417 be the northeastern boundary for the riding, thereby keeping a small section of Kanata at the southwest corner of Terry Fox Drive and Hazeldean Road (behind Sobeys store) with the Kanata-Carleton riding. This suggestion was taken up by the Commission. See FEDERAL, page 2

Girls hockey in Goulbourn Continued from page 1


Nine year old Alexandra Henshaw, who plays for the Goulbourn Rockets atom team of the Goulbourn Girls Hockey Association, is beside the Rockets’ model of a rocket which bears the lettering and numbering “JT34� in memory of the late Joan Thorneycroft of Stittsville who was a major benefactor and fan for the Association when it was getting started two years ago.

He calls her a “go to player� who is aggressive on the ice, works hard and has scored several goals this season. Coach Dunn notes Alexandra’s “passion for the game,� adding that she is a good listener and is motivated. Coach Dunn says that Alexandra has progressed well this season where she has generally played a forward position. This is the second season for the Goulbourn Girls Hockey Association, a new organization that is bringing community-based girls hockey to Stittsville and Goulbourn. Prior to this, girls wanting to play hockey had to register and play with the Kanata Girls Hockey Association. The Goulbourn Girls Hockey Association was given a boost in its formative year last year by the support of the late Joan Thorneycroft of Stittsville who, in consultation with her family, donated $5,000 to the fledging organization to help it get started. She had played hockey in her youth and was a hockey fan her whole life. Indeed, the name “Rockets,� which is used by Goulbourn Girls Hockey Association teams, comes from the name of the team for which Joan played in her youth. Her contribution to the launching of the Goulbourn Girls Hockey Association and its early success is marked by the letters “JT� for Joan Thorneycroft and the number “34� of her ceremonial Rockets jersey, both of which are found on the replica rocket which Goulbourn Rockets team place at centre ice during their pre-game warmup. The Goulbourn Girls Hockey Association started in the fall of 2011, beginning with 18 players, slowing growing over the course of the season, especially after the Association purchased bright blue Goulbourn Rockets jerseys for the players, with a stylized image of a rocket ship on the front. The $5,000 donation by the Thorneycroft family helped in the purchase of the jerseys along with pucks and ice time. This

This re-alignment of federal ridings in Ontario came about as a result of the 2011 census which showed that the population of Ontario increased from 11.41 million in 2001 to 12.85 million in 2011. Applying a constitutional formula to the population data of the 2011 census indicated that 15 new electoral districts should be established in Ontario, bringing the total for Ontario to 121 ridings. The Commission’s proposal was released last September and was followed by public hearings across the province in October and November. The primary rule in establishing electoral boundaries is that the population of each electoral district or riding should be as close as possible to the electoral quota or average for the province. The quota for electoral districts in

donation was immense since the Association had begun the season with virtually no funds. This season the Goulbourn Girls Hockey Association has two Goulbourn Rockets teams, one at the novice level and another at the atom level which is the team for which Alexandra Henshaw plays. These teams play against teams from such communities as Carleton Place and Kemptville. These teams usually play one game a week and also have an on-ice practice each week. The Association also runs an initiation-level program for its youngest players where the emphasis is on skill development. For the upcoming 2013-2014 season, the Goulbourn Girls Hockey Association hopes to ice a peewee level team as well. There may also be the need to form a second team at the atom or novice level, depending on how registration for the 2013-2014 season goes. This season has also seen an increase in parental volunteer involvement with the Goulbourn Girls Hockey Association, giving help to Association founder Cathy Bureau. Members of the Goulbourn Girls Hockey Association executive for the current season are Cathy Bureau as president; Kevin Richardson as vice-president; Melinda Switzer as registrar; Karen Dunn as secretary; Steve Ryan as treasurer; Debbie Pilon as sponsorship chair; Kirk Pashak as ice scheduler; Kevin Richardson as equipment manager; Denise Davy as website manager; and Ray Scobie for website inquiries. Early registration for the 2013-2014 season is coming. For more information about registration, check out the Goulbourn Girls Hockey Association website at or contact registrar Melinda Switzer at registrar@ggha. ca. For more information, please contact Association president Cathy Bureau at cathy.bureau@ or by phone at 613-836-0624.

Ontario is 106,213. Other rules for establishing electoral boundaries related to community of interest, community of identity, historical patterns, and a manageable geographic size for electoral districts in sparsely populated, rural or northern regions of the province. The Commission can depart from the strict population quota if it believes the departure is necessary in terms of community of interest or any of the other non-primary rules. But population variance is limited to 25 percent, either plus or minus, except in extraordinary circumstances. The Commission is not mandated to consider future population growth as a factor when determining acceptable population levels for electoral districts. Legislation governing the Commission does not explicitly list such future pop-

ulation growth forecasts as an ingredient in drawing electoral boundaries. The population of the proposed Kanata-Carleton riding is 100,846 which is 5.05 percent below the provincial quota for a riding. This new Kanata-Carleton riding includes only Kanata and West Carleton. The Mississippi Mills portion of the current CarletonMississippi Mills riding is being transferred to a Lanark County based riding. Currently provincial ridings are identical to the federal ridings in the southern part of the province of Ontario. Whether the province adopts the new federal riding boundaries or not is up to the province once the new riding boundaries are approved at the federal level. The new federal riding boundaries should be in effect for the next federal election.

Funds raised for two ipads John Curry

EMC news - Main Street Community Services in Stittsville has received two ipads for student use thanks to the fundraising efforts of a group of Sacred Heart Catholic High School students. Main Street Community Services is a registered charity that provides programs for children who are challenged by a disability or an

exceptionality. The Sacred Heart students decided to undertake fundraising activity to help out Main Street Community Services after visiting the Main Street Community Services facility located at the rear of the former Stittsville Public School (now Frederick Banting Alternate Program) on Stittsville Main Street. Every year Sacred Heart students involved with a course called “Working with Children” visit Main Street Community Services on a field trip. The students saw

first hand the comprehensive, research-based programs provided by Main Street Community Services and it became obvious to them what they had to do – they had to help out in some way. In addition, one of the Sacred Heart students, Kimberly Widenmaier, even did her co-op placement at Main Street Community Services, increasing her awareness of the work that Main Street Community Services does in helping special needs children and their families. As a result of their exposure to Main Street Community Services, the Sacred Heart students decided to do some fundraising, hopefully to raise enough money to purchase an ipad for Main Street Community Services. They held a bake sale and raffle and also spread the word among their fellow students about the work of Main Street Community Services and the need to help out. When it was all said and done, the Sacred

Heart students had raised enough to purchase two ipads for Main Street Community Services. In addition, thanks to the generosity of Best Buy at Kanata Centrum, the students were able to purchase two ipad cases. And is Main Street Community Services happy about receiving these two ipads for their students? You bet! “It’s an incredible gift,” Main Street Community Services executive director and founder Shelley-Anne Steinburg said about the two ipads and cases, noting that such devices were not readily available to Main Street Community Services because of the cost. “They’re critical tools,” she said about the ipads, noting that they offer incredible benefits to the special needs students at Main Street Community Services because they enhance the communication ability of the students. She called the ipads developmentally appropriate tools that help Main Street’s students learn and grow – a truly invaluable tool.

THE MAYOR’S CITY BUILDER AWARD By Jim Watson At the beginning of each City Council meeting I have the opportunity to recognize an outstanding volunteer in our city with the Mayor’s City Builder Award. This is an award I created when I became Mayor in 2010 to celebrate those doing great volunteer work and inspire others to get involved in philanthropy as well. In the just over two years since THE AWARD HAS BEEN IN EXISTENCE we have presented the City Builder Award to a wide variety of residents from all across Ottawa. &ROM (ANNAH (EMPINSTALL OF Rideau Goulborn Ward,who at only 13 has raised tens of thousands of dollars for diabetes research, to Pierre Gauthier of Alta Vista Ward, whose work at Brewer Park has allowed its outdoor speed-skating oval to be one of the best in the province, Ottawa has an incredibly dedicated and giving population doing amazing things for our city. We are all privileged to live in this city and I am struck everyday

by the generosity of Ottawa’s residents. Despite the scope in age, causes, and activities that our City Builder Award recipients have spanned so far, one thing that is uniformly true is that they are humble people whose work is not for personal gain but rather for the betterment of their community and their fellow residents. I look forward to presenting the City Builder Award in the coming years to more deserving volunteers in our great city. They may not seek out the spotlight but recognizing the great work of these people is a small token of appreciation for what is often a life’s worth of giving back to our City. If you know someone who you would like to nominate for the Mayor’s City Builder Award please visit http://www. mayors-city-builder-award where you will find more information about the award and the nomination form.

Erin Craig, branch manager of the new branch of the Royal Bank of Canada at the corner of Fernbank Road and Terry Fox Drive which will be opening this coming Monday, March 11 stands in front of the building which features a new interior design to allow for more interactive contact between staff and clients.

Fernbank Road Royal Bank branch is offering a new world of banking John Curry

EMC news - It may not be on the scale of Neil Armstrong’s first walk on the moon in 1969, uttering the famous phrase “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind” but when you step into the new Royal Bank branch at the Walmart shopping area at the corner of Fernbank Road and Terry Fox Drive, you too will be stepping into a new world. It’s the new world of retail banking as envisioned by the Royal Bank as this new branch, which opens this coming Monday, March 11, will be the first branch in the Ottawa west area to reflect the bank’s new interior look and feel. The branch, while offering all of the services normally associated with a full-service bank such as personal banking, investment advice and mortgage lending, will have staff out on the floor, talking with clients and offering advice and information. Even branch manager Erin Craig, who could be called a store manager rather than branch manager to better reflect the interactive, store-like nature of the branch, will not have a fixed office. She and the rest of the staff will use available offices only when a private office setting is required. The new format of this Royal Bank branch is the “future of retail banking,” Ms. Craig says. “It’s very interactive,” she adds, noting that staff will be constantly out

on the floor, ready to chat with and serve clients. The staff will be readily identifiable by their distinctive blazer with a name tag and RBC pin. The new format is meant to be “more proactive,” Ms. Craig says, noting that staff will be readily available to clients right on the floor. But this new Royal Bank branch will also provide total accessibility outside of its regular hours. That’s because there will be one ATM banking machine for the drive-thru as well as two ATM’s inside the front door which will be able to be accessed at all times. But manager Craig and her staff are going to be doing some other things that will further enhance the branch’s interaction with its clients. The branch will be holding regular advice events such as one already planned for Saturday, March 23 on financial fraud. This will include a guest from the Ottawa Police Service with those attending able to ask questions about financial fraud. The branch plans to hold such advice events once every couple of months on different topics. These advice events will be free to all who wish to attend. Manager Craig and her team also hope to build a relationship with people in the community. Indeed, Ms. Craig promises that the community is going to see her and her staff out in the community a lot. This will begin happening, in fact, even before the branch opens this coming Monday as staff members

will be at the new Shoppers Drug Mart at the corner of Hazeldean Road and Huntmar Drive this Saturday afternoon bagging groceries for customers as they get out in the community, meeting people. There is another similar grocery bagging outing for staff planned for later in March at the Walmart which is situated in the same shopping area where the new branch is located. These outings are all geared to make the community aware of the new branch and the readiness of its staff to provide advice and service to community residents. While this new Royal Bank branch will be opening this coming Monday, March 11 at 9:30 a.m., a more formal grand opening is being planned for sometime in April or May. This new Royal Bank branch also sits virtually right below the giant Canadian flag which flies proudly at the corner of Fernbank Road and Terry Fox Drive. It can’t be missed due to its size and the new Royal Bank is right there, virtually at its base. Hours at this new Fernbank/Terry Fox Drive branch of the Royal Bank will be Monday and Tuesday 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Wednesday and Thursday 9:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Friday 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Saturday 9 a.m.-4 p.m. This is the same hours as the two neighbouring branches, the Royal Bank at the Jackson Trails Plaza in Stittsville and the Royal Bank branch at the plaza at the corner of Terry Fox Drive and Hazeldean Road in Kanata.

The second in this winter movie night series being presented by Stittsville’s youth connexion program will be “Ice Age 3,” also known as “Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs.” This 2009 computer animated comedy adventure film involves the story of Sid being taken by a female Tyrannosaurus after stealing her eggs, leading to his rescue in a tropical lost world inhabited by dinosaurs beneath the ice.

New page size for Stittsville News Special to the News

EMC news - The Stittsville News is going back to its traditional name. Since Jan. 12, 2012, the paper has been called the Stittsville News EMC, a name adopted after Metroland Media, owner of the Stittsville News, purchased Performance Printing and its stable of EMC papers including the Stittsville Richmond EMC. The combined publication was called the Stittsville News EMC. Now, it will be known as the Stittsville News. The other Metroland Media papers in the Ottawa area will also now be known as “News” – so you have the Orleans News, the Ottawa East News, the Ottawa West News, the Nepean Barrhaven News, the Manotick News and the Ottawa South News. The Kanata Kourier Standard and West Carleton Review will be the only Ottawa area papers of Metroland Media not to carry the “News” name. Metroland Media has also decided to change the physical size of the papers. Starting this week, the Stittsville News, along with the other Metroland Media community newspapers in the Ottawa area, will feature new paper dimensions that more closely conform to the industry standard for tabloid newspapers. But despite the change to a smaller page size, Metroland Media Vice-President and Regional Publisher Mike Mount wants to give readers assurances that the Stittsville News and other Metroland Media papers in the Ottawa area will continue to offer readers and advertisers the strong and varied content that they have come to expect. “Our papers have built a reputation for excellence over many years,” Mr. Mount said. “This will continue with this new format.” Stittsville News EMC - Thursday, March 7, 2013 5

Don’t Let the Bed Bugs Bite

Common ways of contracting bed bugs include: - Staying overnight in bed bug infested accommodations like hotels and shelters - Buying or using infested second-hand furniture - Picking up infested discarded items, such as items that someone has put to the curb for garbage pick-up - Living in a multi-unit housing complex that has a bed bug infestation It is important to take precautions when you are travelling or picking up discarded or used furniture.

Tips to Prevent Bed Bugs While Travelling When travelling, inspect your hotel room for evidence of bed bugs before settling in. Look for live or dead bed bugs, eggs, small black spots (feces), or bed bug skins. • Pull back all bedding at the head of the bed, near the head board, to look for evidence of

bed bugs • Check the underside of the mattress tag • Check the seams of the mattress and the box spring • Examine the back of the head board • Never place luggage on the bed • Examine the luggage stand and place your bag on the stand away from the wall • Do not place your belongings in drawers • Use a flashlight to inspect the closet for evidence of bed bugs before hanging your clothes • Place your shoes in an open area, not under the bed or in the closet • If bed bug evidence is found, report to management and ask for another room When you return home: • Inspect luggage and contents before bringing it into your home • Upon returning to your home, immediately unpack luggage in a location other than the bed room (e.g. bathroom, garage, mud room or foyer) • Launder all clothing with hot water and dry on high heat for at least 30 minutes • A soft bag (e.g. duffel style bag) is an alternative to a hard sided suitcase as it can be placed in the dryer when you get home If you think you may have come in contact with bed bugs during your travels, it is very important to watch and check for signs of bed bugs. Look for signs of bed bugs in the following areas: • Bed frames, head board, mattresses, and box

springs • Chairs and couches • Under area rugs and along the edges of carpets • Behind baseboards

How to address a bed bug infestation: The best way to deal with a bed bug problem is through an integrated pest management approach, which may include: vacuuming, reducing clutter, steam cleaning, sealing cracks and crevices, washing and drying clothes at high temperatures, and the use of a trustworthy professional pest control company. For more information, call the Ottawa Public Health Information Line at 613-580-6744 (TTY: 613-580-9656) or email us at healthsante@ for more information.

Put your Best ’Food’ Forward March is Nutrition Month, Ottawa Public Health is focusing on helping you make the best choices by providing you with tips on how to plan, shop for, and cook healthy, delicious meals. At some point, most of us have resolved to eat healthier. Yet, when we get to the grocery store, many of us run into this: • endless aisles of packaged food; • many choices of fresh fruit and vegetables often make for hard decisions; • tempting aromas of the bakery wafts through the store; and • deli counter offers ready-to-eat meals. How does one filter through all of these options to find the best food, for the lowest price, that can be prepared quickly and easily?

Plan Planning meals and writing a grocery list is a great way to save time, money and effort when it comes to prepping meals and shopping for food. Start by planning your main meals for the week. Have you ever made a list of your family’s top ten favourite healthy meals? Having such a list will make meal planning a breeze. Perhaps you’re looking for new recipe ideas? EatRight Ontario’s My Menu Planner will help you create a personalized menu plan, complete with seasonal recipes and a shopping list. Shop When it comes to grocery shopping, reading labels and comparing products is key to making healthy food choices. If ever in doubt (or in a hurry), it’s easy to seek out beautiful colourful food that packs a crunch. If you can, shop for fresh produce whenever possible - you’d be surprised by the extra crunch local vegetables provide! Check out Foodland Ontario to see when your favourite vegetables and fruit are in season. Frozen vegetables and fruits are also a great option and can be just as nutritious as fresh ones, especially in the winter months Another food group that might surprise you with its satisfying crunch - grain products! Let your nose follow that tempting aroma to the bakery where you can find delicious whole grains. Lastly, don’t forget the outer aisles of the grocery store. This is where you will find lower fat 1% or skim milk and lean meats such as skinless chicken and extra-lean ground beef. These items may not be

crunchy, but they are great tasting and good for you! Cook Most of us don’t have the time to cook from scratch anymore. Once you’re home and the groceries are unpacked and to speed up meal preparation, why not try using convenient food items like pre-cut and prewashed vegetables and fruit? To save even more time, try making larger amounts of food and plan to use leftovers for lunches and suppers the next day or throughout the remainder of the week. The extra ground beef could be used in tacos, on pizza or in pasta sauce. Thankfully, cooking from scratch doesn’t have to require lots of work or time in order to be healthy. Experiment to find meal preparation shortcuts that work best for you. Enjoy healthy eating throughout the month of March and beyond. Use these tips to plan, shop and cook your way to delicious, healthy meals for you and your family.

Bed bugs are small insects that usually hide during the day and come out at night to bite human hosts. Adult bed bugs are about the size of an apple seed and, because they hide in small spaces like cracks or crevices, are often very hard to find. As a result, you may have signs of a bed bug problem – bites around your face, neck, upper body, arms and hands that you notice after waking up from a night’s sleep – without having seen a bed bug for weeks. Bed bugs can be a nuisance, but it is important to know that they do not spread disease, nor do they fly or jump.

Don’t let respect for seniors lapse


here’s a lot of uncertainty in these fragile economic times. People everywhere are scrambling to make ends meet or formulate plans to secure their financial futures. Back in the 1970s we were sold a fantasy; the dream of a leisure society where one of the biggest challenges faced by municipalities would be offering recreational services for workers enjoying reduced work weeks and seniors lazing comfortably, with time on the hands. A few decades later, we face a far different picture. We have very little to celebrate. Now, workers who carried the hope of

early retirement are being told by the federal government that Old Age Security is changing and there are plans to up the retirement age to 67 years. Many can’t afford to retire early, or even at age 65. Last month, BMO reported that Canadians, on average, managed to save about $9,200 in 2012. And the average total savings amongst Canadians is $122,310. Some who worked hard all their lives will be unable to afford to stay in their homes. Others will be forced by failing health into long-term care homes. They must not be forgotten or shortchanged when it comes to federal and provincial dollars for services.


Not quite what it used to be CHARLES GORDON Funny Town


UNEDIN, FL. – Every old-timer I know says that spring training is not what it used to be. What it used to be was a few fans sitting around in the sun, flamingos flying overhead, scouts smoking cigars while they check out The Kid, the players hanging over the fence talking to the fans and handing out autographs. It was a lazy and informal setting and every fan wanted to be part of it. Maybe it was never like that. Maybe the past was never as romantic as we think. But what today’s spring training is like is bound to suffer from the comparison. What it is like now, in Dunedin, Florida, in the unromantically named Florida Auto Exchange Stadium, is a large minor league park in any city, with lineups, parking problems, reserved seats and overpriced coffee. Florida Auto Exchange Stadium, where the Toronto Blue Jays practice, reminds you quite a bit of Lynx Stadium in Ottawa, in the days when there used to be crowds. Florida Auto Exchange Stadium holds fewer people, but it’s a nice small park and the sightlines are about the same. Where the old-time spring training feel still plays out is in the easy-going nature of the fans, so pleased to be watching baseball again, so pleased to be out in the sunshine that that they can barely bring themselves to boo a bad call, so pleased to be out in the sunshine that even

Boston Red Sox fans have a hard time being unpleasant. The minor-league vibe can also be felt in the informality of the stadium itself, where a leather-lunged vendor can proclaim “ice-cold Canadian beer in an American can made in China� and, when announcing last call, urge customers to “take one home, as a souvenir.� So some things haven’t changed, but one thing that has -- and it applies to all sport -- is the recent trend among fans to wear full team uniforms. It used to be that if you went to the (sob!) Expos game, you might wear an Expos hat or an Expos t-shirt. You might see the odd guy wearing a uniform shirt with Raines or Dawson on the back, but it was rare because those things cost $75 and being a fan only went so far. It sure is different now. So seriously does the modern fan take his responsibilities that the uniform shirt, or replica jersey as it is known in the store, is seen in the hundreds, even at spring training where things haven’t begun to get serious. They are listed at $119.99 in Canada. And people aren’t wearing some old replica jersey with Jesse Barfield’s name on the back. No, these jerseys, most of them worn by grown men, have the names from the current roster on the back, not only names from the current roster but names of players, like Dickey and Reyes, who arrived in off-season trades and haven’t played a regular season game yet. Of course the wearers of these jerseys, aside from Reyes and Dickey themselves, must surely be Canadians. And you realize how many Canadians there are in this small Florida town when the anthems are played and O Canada is actually sung by a large number of people. Then the Star Spangled Banner is played and what seems to be an equal number of voices is heard. Mercifully, no animosity is detected between the singers of the different songs. But then, it’s spring training.

New store’s name says it all - ‘Kiddie Kobbler’ $1,000 scholarships from Lions Special to the News

EMC news - The store name – emblazoned in the store’s multi-coloured signage of red, blue, yellow, orange and green lettering on both the front and rear of its premises at the Shoppes of Fairwinds shopping area at the corner of Hazeldean Road and Huntmar Drive – says it all: “Kiddie Kobbler.� It’s a store for kids and this is visually apparent stepping in the store’s front door and seeing on display large photos of youngsters adorning the upper reaches of the side walls. These photos are of local youngsters which were taken in a photo shoot at Village Square in Stittsville last August, all with the idea of hanging them up in this new Kiddie Kobbler shop. And there the images are, showing that, yes, kids are the priority in

this shop. The “Kiddieâ€? in the store name is bang on. And as for the “Kobblerâ€? part of the name, again you only have to step in the store’s front door and see the youngsters’ shoes on display on the walls of the shop to realize that while it may be spelled with a “Kâ€? to ďŹ t in with “Kiddie,â€? the name certainly refers to the traditional profession of cobbler, one who mends shoes and is associated with the shoe trade. And while this new Kiddie Kobbler shop which opened last Saturday does display and sell a wide variety of youngsters’ shoes, ranging from brightly coloured runners to school shoes to sandals bearing a variety of brand names such as Reebok, Stride Rite, Michael Kors, GEOX, KEEN and more, there are more than shoes in the shop. There’s Muddy Buddy waterproof

Five year old Ben Rodgers has the scissors ready to cut the ribbon to officially open the new Kiddie Kobbler store in the Shoppes of Fairwinds shopping area (where Food Basics and Toys ‘R Us are located) last Friday, March 1 as he is joined by his parents and store owners Joanne and Matthew Rodgers and city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri, far left.

EMC news - Graduating high school students could be recipients of an academic achievement scholarship/bursary awarded by the Stittsville District Lions Club. Three bursaries, each valued at $1,000, will be awarded to students entering ďŹ rst year college or university. Application forms can be found online at www.stittsvillelions. com. Applications must be submitted by Wednesday, May 1, with the scholarships/bursaries to be awarded at the Lions Club’s meeting on Wednesday, May 22.








coveralls, ideal for year round play. There’s t-shirts as well. But you know that shoes are the main focus of this new Kiddie Kibbler shop as up there on the wall is one large photograph that is not from the Village Square photo shoot but rather is a blow-up of a photo taken by shop franchise owner Joanne Rodgers last summer of her dog carrying a shoe in its mouth. It was something that just happened but goes well with the shop’s photographic dĂŠcor on its walls. The store’s Saturday opening was preceded by an invited gathering of family, friends and supporters on the Friday evening at the store. Among those present was city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri who congratulated Joanne Rodgers and her husband Matthew Rodgers on opening this new business in Stittsville. He acknowledged that the store’s location in the Shoppes of Fairwinds shopping area along Hazeldean Road was a great one, with the Toys ‘R Us store at the same shopping area. In addition, the store is near the Fairwinds community which continues to grow and is across the Hazeldean Road from the Fernbank lands which will eventually be home to about 30,000 people in the next 20 years. Councillor Qadri praised local businesses like this new Kiddie Kobbler store for their contribution to and involvement with the community, including hiring staff from the community. Councillor Qadri then participated in a ribbon cutting ceremony along with Joanne and Matthew Rodgers, with their ďŹ ve year old son Ben Rodgers wielding the scissors and cutting the ribbon to mark the store’s ceremonial opening. Kiddie Kobbler has been a leader in children’s footwear in Canada for over 65 years, offering service that is second to none, ensuring that the perfect ďŹ t happens for every child’s little feet and providing a wide selections of brands and quality footwear to ďŹ t every budget.

Whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brewing your morning coffee, booting up your computer, or switching on the TV, they all require one essential ingredient: electricity. This power is readily available at the ďŹ&#x201A;ick of the switch or the push of a plug.

And so the teams were asked questions like what two countries occupy the majority of the Iberian Penninsula (Spain and Portugal), for how long did Rip Van Winkle sleep (20 years), what was the first name of Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple character (Jane), who holds the Canadian Football League record for most receiving yards in a career (Geroy Simon) and who was the eighth president of the United States (Martin Van Buren). Two of the more unique rounds dealt with music and TV characters. In the music round, teams had to identify the group or person singing and the name of the song, one point each. Singers included the Tragically Hip, T-Rex, Bruce Springsteen, Neil Diamond, Maroon 5, Alanis Morissette, the Manic Street Preachers, the Swedish House Mafia and The Who. In the TV characters round, teams had to name the character from a popular TV show who was pictured on the video screen. It had to be the name of the character in the show, not the actor’s name. So you had Zack Morris from Saved By the Bell; Howard Wolowitz from The Big Bang Theory; Harold Green from The Red Green Show; Mrs. Lovey Howell from Gilligan’s Island; Matthew Crawley from Downton Abbey; Philip Fry from Futurama; Wesley Owens from Mr. Belvedere; Dana Brody from Homeland; and Dr. Rayyan Hamoudi from Little Mosque on the Prairie.

Funds raised to help with projects in Seje in Kenya John Curry

EMC news - It may be a night featuring trivia but there is nothing trivial about the annual Quiz for a Cause event at the Community Bible Church in Stittsville. Last Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second annual event will see all of the funds raised go to help with projects in the Seje community in Kenya. Indeed, Seje is located in one of the poorest regions in Africa. The Community Bible Church in Stittsville has been partnering with the village of Seje in Kenya since April 2011. Current projects are to provide clean water to the community, to support a school for orphans and to invest in agricultural projects that will lead to self-sustainability for the community. There has been significant progress made recently. The water project to deliver water from the river valley to the community is now in the trial stage, pumping water up a hill. The multipurpose building that will be used as an interim school facility is nearing completion. Three acres of land have recently been acquired for agricultural projects. Funding for the community school is the Community Bible Churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top priority for this year. This involves raising funds to support the school program overall while also continuing to find sponsors for individual children.

The plan is to start building a formal school next year, getting the school out of interim accommodation. For this year, the Community Bible Church, in consultation with Seje community leaders, has agreed to sponsor another class of 20 junior kindergarten children. This means that the church is now supporting three classes ranging from junior kindergarten to grade one, comprising a total of 70 children. Orphans and children living with widows received priority in the selection of children to attend the school. The remaining children from the poorest families were then selected by lottery. The Community Bible Churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work in Seje was launched in partnership with an organization called YouFeedThem (YFT) and with the Trinity Bible Church in Osgoode. The church has also established a partnership with an organization called Hungry For Life (HFL) which is already operating in the region of Seje, supporting clinics, schools and agricultural projects. It is a Christian, Canadian-based organization that shares the churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s values and vision. Currently a HFL representative is in Kenya visiting Seje and a neighbouring village, meeting with the Seje Community Based Organization. It is expected that by sometime this month, HFL will have a plan prepared suggesting how the Community Bible Church should proceed with its projects.

Projects range from comedy to rocketry to airplanes John Curry

EMC news - It was an evening of celebration. But it was also an evening of information as five grade eight students at the Ottawa Waldorf School in Stittsville last Thursday,

Feb. 28 made presentations on the projects which they themselves had selected and pursued, advised by an adult mentor. And what a diversity of projects and resulting information – positive reinforcement in animal training; creating an original comedy routine;

model rocketry; a non-kill animal rescue shelter; and how airplanes fly. It all began last fall when each student selected a topic for his or her project. The scope of each project provided a challenge to the student, being larger in scope that anything tried before in their education and



requiring a lot of extracurricular work. In addition to picking a topic, the student had to recruit a mentor – someone who had knowledge about the topic and could offer advice and guidance. This had to be a non-relative. The student, though, had to do all of the work regarding the project, keeping a journal which detailed progress made and challenges encountered. It all culminated in the project presentations which took place in the assembly room at the Ottawa Waldorf School, filled with interested parents and siblings. The students not only had to prepare a speech about the project but also had to make a display outlining the project – much like a science fair display. Leah Cosman told about her efforts to train the five year old, previously untrained parrot named Cooper by using positive reinforcement methods. She told about using a clicker to control the bird’s behaviour and also training the parrot to pull a string. This new skill by Cooper was used to great effect at the end of Leah’s presentation when she enticed Cooper to flip open a prop which read: “We deserve an ‘A’”. This innovative and humourous ending led nicely into the second presentation by Theo Van der Burgt who not only told about comedy down through the years but also delivered his own stand-up comedy routine. Theo had Brian Stollery, a Calgary-based comedian, as his mentor, communicating with him by skype. Theo told about comedy from the ancient Greek times through the Roman Empire to the court jesters of the Middle Ages to the vaudeville of post-Civil War times to the stand-up comedy of today. He told about the different styles of comedy such as

verbal and observational. He developed his own stand-up comedy routine which he delivered to round out his presentation. Sunao Gomi chose model rocketry for his project. With the help of his mentor, he learned how to build and assemble a model rocket and, indeed, how to launch it. He did this three times on a day in January. His project allowed him to discover a new hobby. Alyson Terry focused her project on the local non-kill animal shelter operated by the Arnprior and District Humane Society. She told how she had so much fun playing with the cats being sheltered there when she was volunteering there as part of her project. She told how this animal shelter spent over $50,000 just on veterinary bills alone in 2012. Alyson said that working at this shelter taught her about the diversity that exists in the personality of cats. She advised everyone that if they are looking for a cat or a dog, they should first look to an animal shelter before turning to a breeder because by adopting an animal from a shelter, you are really helping an animal in need. Scott McGeachy’s presentation told about how airplanes fly, namely through the lift created by their wings along with thrust created by a propeller or jet engine. He demonstrated different wing designs and their lift capability through the use of a small wind tunnel which he and his mentor had built and developed. He deserves full marks for patience and persistence as he cut 1,000 straws into smaller pieces (4,000 pieces in all) to create a filter to smooth out the air in the wind tunnel. He admitted that it took hours to do this.

Main Street Community Services in Stittsville 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.

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 (now Frederick Banting Alternate Program school) on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about proving that the strength of the human spirit can overcome any obstacle and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something that 19 year old Tyrone Henry of Stittsville has been doing since being paralyzed in a 2010 car accident. But now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a matter of convincing the producers and selection committee of the TV show The Amazing Race Canada that Tyrone and his father Andrew â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Team Henry â&#x20AC;&#x201C; would be a good choice for the show. Tyrone and Andrew Henry are applying for a spot on the upcoming season of The Amazing Race Canada. They only have to look at what Tyrone has done since being paralyzed in 2010 to know that this athletic father and son team would bring a new dimension to the Race show. There has been no self-pity by Tyrone following his life altering accident. Instead, he has taken the situation as a challenge to live his life to the fullest. Even more active now before the accident, he and his father Andrew can be found at the rink, on the slopes, in the water and on the streets, staying active and participat-

ing. But thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more to Tyroneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s story than this. Through his participation in Rick Hansenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Man in Motion 25th anniversary tour, he has developed a friendship with Rick Hansen and he now has the support not only of the Rick Hansen Foundation but Mr. Hansenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s personal support. If Tyrone and his father Andrew are selected to participate in The Amazing Race Canada, they plan to use the opportunity to demonstrate to viewers how pro-active Canada is in accommodating the disabled and how having a disability does not mean that a person canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do something. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our intentions are to do this on behalf of all of those with limited abilities and to provide to Canada what is possible,â&#x20AC;? Andrew Henry says. Of course, the first challenge for Team Henry is to convince the showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s producers that Tyrone and Andrew would be good candidates to have on the show. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There will be some challenges made even more difficult due to his condition,â&#x20AC;? Andrew says about his sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paralysis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But given the opportunity, we will show that anything is possible when we work together.â&#x20AC;? CainCo Photography of Kanata was approached by Andrew Henry last January to see if the firm could

assist with the Team Henry application to CTV for appearing on The Amazing Race Canada show. CainCo Photographyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s background includes working with special needs kids and with photographing and promoting sledge hockey for Sledge Hockey of

Eastern Ontario. CainCo Photography agreed to sponsor Team Henry by donating time and the resulting race application imagery. CainCo Photography is a Kanata based professional photography stu-

dio and gallery specializing in corporate and portrait imagery. The firm has an ongoing project known as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;White Shirt Galleryâ&#x20AC;? which raises funds for the Capital City Condors, a hockey organization for special needs youngsters.

Providing shoes for children in shanty communities in Peru Special to the News

EMC news - Students at St. Philip Catholic School in Richmond are raising money to help barefoot children in Peru. Children in the shanty town communities in Peru usually go around barefoot. The money being raised by St. Philip students will help buy shoes for these children. The funds are being raised by the students doing chores around the home. This is all part of an ongoing outreach initiative led by Rev. Bob Poole, who is the current pastor of St. Philip Catholic Church in Richmond. For the last seven years, Rev. Poole has led a mission trip to Peru with members of his community in Vanier called “Lift Jesus Higher.” On these trips, they go to the poorer areas of cities where tourists never go. Rev. Poole and those with him go into the shanty town communities in these Peru cities, trying to put into action Jesus’ words: “Whatever

you do for the least of my brothers and sisters, you do to me.” In these shanty town communities, Rev. Poole and the others bring not only the love of Jesus but also help in practical ways, bringing food and drink, clothes, shoes, medicines, toiletries, school supplies, Bibles and other necessities. The group has raised funds for three main projects: building a children’s soup kitchen to feed 150 children in a shanty town in Huanuco, the poorest province in Peru; repairing sewage pipes and building new washroom facilities in a shanty community in downtown Lima; and building a community centre in a village high up in the mountains overlooking Lima which is the capital city of Peru. Rev. Poole will be leading a mission team to Peru again this summer and this time members of St. Philip’s parish in Richmond will be going.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Camp Curatorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; at Goulbourn Museum

Former summer student now curator-manager at Goulbourn Museum



EMC news- Kathryn Jamieson began working at the Goulbourn Museum as a summer student and since then she hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t looked back. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s held many different positions at the Museum since 2008 and she is now the curator-manager of the Goulbourn Museum. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Generally I am responsible for the day to day operations of the Museum.â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some days I am writing policies, attending meetings and applying for grants. Other days I am wearing a costume and blowing up balloons.â&#x20AC;? She assumed these curator-manager duties this past January upon the retirement of the longtime executive director Donna Keays-Hockey who had been at the Museum in 1996.. As the new curator-manager of the Goulbourn Museum, Kathryn has some new visions for the Museum. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would like to see the museum become more integrated into the community.â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For example, if the museum could be a place where people can host their meetings it could be beneficial.â&#x20AC;? This is one of her many visions along with making the Museum more accessible to the community. Adding a Saturday opening is one strategy meant to accomplish this. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We changed our hours at the beginning of February. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re now open from Wednesday to Sunday.â&#x20AC;? she says. The new hours make it easier for people to visit the Museum on weekends. There are a number of new and upcoming events at the Museum such as the Camp Curator day camp which is a half-day, week-long camp during March Break for children ages 7-11. This camp is designed to give youngsters an idea of what it would be like to be a curator at a museum. The Museum is also offering P.A day programs for children. On June 16 this year the Museum will be hosting a program commemorating the War of 1812. This will include military re-enactors, games and activities as well as a silent auction. Working at the Goulbourn Museum has given Kathryn many great experiences but she says that the best

Stittsville’s Meghan Corley-Byrne is honoured Special to the News

EMC sports - Stittsville’s Meghan CorleyByrne was Mount Allison University’s Female Athlete of the Week for the week of Feb. 18 to Feb. 25. This was the result of her outstanding play in the Subway Atlantic University Sport (AUS)

Women’s Hockey Championships which were hosted by Mount Allison and played in Sackville, New Brunswick. A five year veteran of the Mount Allison Mounties, goalie Corley-Byrne stopped 77 of 80 shots in a pair of playoff games in the championships. She posted the highest save percent-

age, namely .962, in the hockey championships and had the second lowest goals-against-average (1.50) while facing the second most shots of any goalie. Her 42 saves in a game against the University of Prince Edward Island were key to her team’s win. These saves included a spectacular save on a three-on-zero rush in the second period. Corley-Byrne is a former two-time AUS hockey all-star. She was selected as the Mount Allison Mounties Rookie of the Year in the 2008-2009 season, following that up by being

selected as the team’s MVP the next season. A graduate of South Carleton High School in Richmond, Corley-Byrne is a former player with the Nepean Wildcats Midget AA team before attending Mount Allison. A fifth year Arts student, majoring in English, Meghan plays to pursue a future as a paramedic. This Mount Allison Female Athlete of the Week award is sponsored by Joey’s Restaurant. In being selected for the award, Meghan went up against players from the Mount Allison volleyball, basketball and swimming teams.

It was this same Cornwall Lions team that the Hornets faced in the championship final but although the Hornets gave it their best, they came up on the short end of the 48-40 final score. This meant silver rather than gold medals for the Goulbourn squad. Chloe Brownlee was chosen as the team’s MVP for her outstanding play. The Hornets had earned their way to the championship final by defeat-

DID YOU KNOW? Have you ever wondered where some of the streets in Stittsville got their names? Many have been derived from individuals who were a part of the community’s history. The street Carlton-Cathcart, which runs off of Stittsville Main Street, was named after the late Carlton Cathcart who arrived from Ireland to Goulbourn Township with his family in 1822. The Cathcarts had a most distinguished family background. Carlton’s mother Catherine Montgomery was a close relative of Sir Guy Carleton the first Governor of Canada from 1846 to 1847. On his father William’s side, Carlton was a descendant of the Earls of Cathcart. The Cathcart family is one of the most ancient families in Scotland. The land grant which William Cathcart had received when he came to the township of Goulbourn, consisted of 300 acres, and it was from this homestead that the Cathcart family branched out. Carlton, who is also known for building one of the first steam mills in the county, was appointed to the position of Township Clerk of Goulbourn in 1850, a position he held for many years. He was quite prominent in the formative period of the Municipality. The early municipal history of Goulbourn is somewhat vague because the great Carleton fire of 1870 destroyed the old township hall and the records up to that time. That township hall was built in 1853 at a cost of 80 pounds sterling on the lot then owned by Carleton Cathcart.

NEWS As many of you know, I have been working various jobs once a month for nearly a year and a half. In December, I worked at the Gingerbread Man, in January at the Trail Road Waste Facility, but I did something a little different in February. As I have done in several times since being elected, I accepted an invitation to speak to careers classes at South Carleton High School. I always enjoy this opportunity as these Grade 10 students are no different than I was at that exact same point in my life, which seems to be much less recent than I thought. One student kindly mentioned that she was born the same year I was in Grade 11. For the majority of these students, my job is really quite boring so I generally refrain from talking about my job too much and spend most of the time talking to them about how I got from where they are now to where I am today. I have spoken about this in a column before so I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be overly repetitive but the journey was not without setbacks. From graduating from South Carleton to attending Carleton University to eventually being elected in 2010, all along the way there were people that told me I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t achieve the goals I set out for myself. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s this that I emphasize when speaking with students because no matter what school you choose to go to or what career path you envision for yourself after high school, there will be negative people along the way. If I had let these people bother me, I would never have run for election in 2010 after losing in 2006. Whether applying to your ďŹ rst choice of University or College, going to an interview for your ďŹ rst job or running in an election, the lessons are the same and failure only teaches you how to succeed in the future. While Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure some students in these classes tune me out the second I get there, I do appreciate the opportunity to speak to these students. Even though they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t vote, I represent them too and it is nice to get to know them and speak about their concerns in the community they live in as well. In March, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m back to â&#x20AC;&#x153;workâ&#x20AC;? as Councillor for Hire takes me to the Goulbourn Museum on March 14th where Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take part in their March Break day camp.

Jazz guitarist at Gaia Java shop John Curry

EMC news - Last Friday, jazz guitarist Alex Tompkins was performing at the Gaia Java Coffee Company shop in Stittsville. This time next year he may be performing on a cruise ship or he may be studying for his Masters Degree in music. These are the two avenues that he sees for himself in the near future. Alex already has a Bachelor of Music Degree from Carleton University and is taking this year off before continuing his musical journey, either on a cruise ship or in a Masters program, probably at a university in Toronto or Montreal. But this is hardly a “year off” for the jazz guitarist as

he is involved with several musical groups in the area at present and he also teaches music privately. So, he is one busy musician. At the Gaia Java coffee shop’s Friday Music Evening last Friday, Alex demonstrated his style which features a combination of interpretations of jazz standards along with inventive improvisation. This results in a relaxing yet interesting sound as he combines the melody of a song with the chords that create its harmonic structure. He frequently also adds a “walking bass” part that adds to the tune’s rhythmic progression. Last Friday his offerings included Antonio Carlos Jobim’s “Insensatez” (“How insensitive” in English), the ballad “All The Things You Are”

which is a popular song for jazz musicians given its chord progressions, and the Johnny Mandel/Johnny Mercer song “Emily,” perhaps best known as the title song for the 1964 film “The Americanization of Emily,” sung by Julie Andrews. The Friday Music Evenings at the Gaia Java Coffee Company continue this Friday, March 8 with a performance by Mindy Amelotte featuring guitar stylings and vocals. These Music Evenings get underway at 7 p.m. and are free to attend, although an early arrival is recommended as the best seats go quickly. The Gaia Java Coffee Company is located in the Stittsville Shopping Centre (Shoppers Drug Mart plaza) on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville.

Close results in annual Music Trivia Night

EMC news - The Richmond Legion Hall became a Music Hall last Saturday as the fifth annual Music Trivia Night hosted by the Goulbourn Jubilee Singers was held there. Music was everywhere in the air in the hall â&#x20AC;&#x201C; sometimes in the form of an audio clue but most often in the form of a question â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a music trivia question, that is. Each of the ten rounds of ten questions each had a theme â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gone But Not Forgottenâ&#x20AC;? about music greats who have passed on (for instance, name a jazz pianist and composer who died in 2012 or who is the missing Beatle) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or what about â&#x20AC;&#x153;Music in the Last Decadeâ&#x20AC;? about music in the past ten years (for instance, who is the British rock icon who has broken a decade-long silence with a new single Where Are We Now?) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or what about the Animal Round dealing with music about animals â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or the round dealing with classical and classic music. This was the fifth and what will be the last year that the Goulbourn Jubilee Singers

will be hosting this Music Trivia Night. Although the crowd once again this year filled the hall, the organization of the event requires a lot of work, especially gathering up the many donated door prizes and, most significantly, researching the questions and answers. But the Goulbourn Jubilee Singers have promised to come up with a new fundraising event to replace this Music Trivia Night. And when this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Music Trivia Night was all over, the results were oh, so close. Only one and a half points separated first from third. In third place was Team â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bâ&#x20AC;? with 83 points. Red Green will love them as they won a pile of duct tape for their third place finish. Second place went to last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s champion team, Team â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hâ&#x20AC;? this year, comprised of Chris King, Shawna King, Shawn Brown, Julie Brown, Lyall Brown and Greta Wilcox. They finished with 83 ½ points. Interestingly, their winning point total last year was 83 points. So they are a pretty consistent team. The winning team this year was Team â&#x20AC;&#x153;G,â&#x20AC;? the self-pro-

claimed â&#x20AC;&#x153;G Unitâ&#x20AC;? squad which finished with 84 ½ points.

Members of this team, who are former champions in the

event, are Cindy Bissonnette, Wally Curtis, Joseph Albert,

Susan Goddard, Noah Goddard and Rachel Goddard.

Wendy Russell leads Peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Choice balloting John Curry

EMC news - And the winner isâ&#x20AC;Ś! You heard this at the Academy Awards and at the Canadian Screen Awards. Now this phrase can also apply to the Peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Choice balloting for the Halcyon Days exhibition that ran at the Ottawa West Arts Association (owaa) gallery from January through to last Friday, March 1.

This Peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Choice balloting gives viewers an opportunity to indicate their favourite piece of art on display in the exhibition. Placing ďŹ rst in the Peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Choice balloting for the Halcyon Days exhibition was Wendy Russellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s acrylic â&#x20AC;&#x153;Decked Out In Red,â&#x20AC;? showing a number of red leaves intricately depicted on a dark wood grained ďŹ&#x201A;oor. Second place in the voting went to Stephen Harrisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Techtown Arcadeâ&#x20AC;? photograph reproduced on dye

infused aluminum like all of his work. This produces a sharp, clear image. The photograph showed three people looking at an array of video game machines in an arcade. While we cannot see their faces, no doubt they are grinning with delight â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they have found their halcyon heaven. Third place in the People Choiceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s balloting went to Patrick Bourke for his photo â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stillnessâ&#x20AC;? showing that there can be calmness even with a stream tumbling over rock ledges

as it makes it ways through leaf-strewn banks. Although the water is rushing along in its downhill path, its isolation in the woods lends a stillness and ongoing calmness to the scene. Peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Choice balloting is now underway at the owaa gallery for the new exhibition now on display there, Metamorphosis. Everyone is invited to ďŹ ll out a ballot indicating their favourite piece in the exhibition. This balloting gives encouraging feedback to the artists.

SCHS ski team wins provincial medals Special to the News

EMC sports - South Carleton High School’s awesome alpine skiing history was further enhanced by the performance of this year’s ski team. Over the past 15 years, South Carleton has sent 54 ski team athletes to the OFSAA provincial high school championships, with 50 bringing home medals. This year South Carleton sent a record number of 15 alpine skinning athletes to OFSAA.

Three South Carleton teams, involving a total of 15 students, ranging from grade 9 through grade 12, participated in this National Capital Secondary School Athletic Association alpine skinning championships. The Level 1 girls team with co-captains Kylie Hailstone and Julie Sproule and members Ashley Cuthbert, Emma Duff and Sierra Hailstone won the gold medal in the team slalom event. In the individual Level 1 slalom event held on Tuesday, Feb. 12, Kylie Hailstone of South Carleton won the gold medal.

Stittsville’s Cobina Delaney scores in triple overtime for victory John Curry

EMC sports – It was a game of records for the Robert Morris University Colonials women’s hockey team last Friday. It set a team record for the longest game played at 108 minutes as it went into triple overtime. It was the first time that the Colonials had played into the third overtime period of a game. And it set a team record for shots on goal in a single game with 92 shots.

And while all of these records are great, the best thing coming out of this first round game in the College Hockey America tournament was that the Robert Morris University Colonials won. And better yet, it was Stittsville’s Cobina Delaney who scored the winning goal in the triple overtime contest to give the Colonials a 2-1 victory. This goal was also record setting for Cobina as it were the 24th goal of her career with the Robert Morris Colonials, moving her into ninth

place on the team’s all-time goal scoring list. It was also the fourth game winning goal that she has scored in her Robert Morris career, tying her for seventh place on the team’s all-time list in this regard. It was with 8:04 gone in the third overtime period that Cobina scored her game winning goal as the Colonials were playing against Lindenwood. It happened on a power play when teammate Rebecca Vint carried the puck behind the Lindenwood net before hitting Cobina Delaney

with a pass in front of the net. Cobina buried the puck into the net for the game winning goal. It was the seventh goal of the season for Cobina. Cobina Delaney, who is a graduate of Sacred Heart Catholic High School in Stittsville, is in her fourth and final year of playing for the Robert Morris Colonials women’s hockey team. She is one of the team’s senior assistant captains this season. Robert Morris University is in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Letter: CDP unfinished Editor: As I was unable to attend the Feb. 13 public meeting at the Richmond Memorial Community Centre regarding a proposed subdivision in the Western Development Lands in Richmond, I read with interest your reporting in the Feb. 21 Stittsville News EMC. The article headlined “Development may

alter village feel” caught my attention. It discussed some concerns/issues that Richmond has with Caivan’s development plans for the village. These same issues arose a few years ago during discussions concerning our Community Design Plan (CDP). Although these issues have been acknowledged by the city since 2010, they still remain undiscussed, unresolved

but, surprisingly, filed presumably as complete by the city in 2010. In your article, Ms. Cheryl McWilliams, a city planner, dismissed these Community Design Plan concerns, saying “it is what it is” and that it had been approved by Ottawa city council in 2010. I am having great difficulty understanding how this CDP was able to be approved by city council with unfinished business still pending. As spokesperson for the city, Ms. McWilliams implies that this CDP is complete. My

dictionary defines “complete” as “finished, entire, free from deficiency.” I put to you that Richmond’s CDP is none of these things. Indeed, it would appear Richmond might have been misled regarding the city’s promise to address these CDP deficiencies in a timely manner. My fear is that construction will begin on Richmond’s Western Development Lands while our concerns languish. And by the it will likely be too late to stop. Rosemary MacArthur Richmond

Stittsville News has chronicled events in community for over 50 years Special to the News

EMC news - The Stittsville News has chronicled the growth and changes in the Stittsville community over the past half century and more. So, it is only reasonable to expect that the newspaper’s history shows that it has grown and changed over the years along with the community that is has reported on and has served. Stittsville as a community traces its roots back to 1818 when the first settlers arrived in the area, allocated land in the area through the jurisdiction of the Richmond military settlement. Jackson Stitt, after whom the village received its name, arrived in the area in 1832 and became the community’s first postmaster in 1854, thus ensuring that the community would forever be known as Stittsville. In 1870, there were two significant historical events, one destructive in nature and the other very much a huge step forward for the community. The disastrous Carleton County Fire raged through the area in August, 1870, leaving death and destruction in its trail. But this same year also saw the coming of the railroad through the community, beginning a 120 year association between the two that gave the village much of its character and nature for much of this time period. Indeed, the destructive nature of the Carleton County Fire and the lure of the railroad combined to literally bring about the relocation of the heart of the village from the “Old Stittsville” area located along what is now the Carp Road between Stittsville Main Street and the Hazeldean Road to the area around the railway tracks and station, the area now considered

“downtown” Stittsville. Although the railroad is gone, it still continues to make an impact on village life as the railway right of way through the heart of the community is now a section of the Trans Canada Trail. Stittsville remained, though, a community of about 500 people until after the Second World War when the community saw its first vestiges of growth due to the Post War boom in the Ottawa area. By the late 1950’s, Stittsville had seen modest new housing growth, with the village’s population rising to about 1200 and a small collection of businesses serving the community. One of these new residents to the community was Howard Maguire who had moved to a new house in the community in 1954. He had worked in the community newspaper business elsewhere and while working for the federal government printing bureau and later the daily Ottawa Journal as a linotype operator, he came to see Stittsville as a growing community that would be a great place to start a community newspaper. Believing in the future growth of the community, he published the first-ever four page issue of The Stittsville News on December 12, 1957. It began as a once-a-month publication but quickly was produced twice a month, beginning in September, 1958. Initially the paper was printed at the Lanark Era newspaper in Lanark but soon it would have its own printing equipment, set up in the basement of a grey cinder block building located behind what was then Bradley’s General Store in the heart of the community. This building, built in 1945, is still there today, behind what used to be Louisiannie’s

and is now the NOLA Eatery. A press set up in the Stittsville office was capable of printing the newspaper, with all of the set up of the paper being done through a hot metal printing process which involved setting type on a linotype and hand setting other larger type from the so-called California job case which was common in newspaper and job printing shops at the time. In 1970, The Stittsville News switched to the offset printing process which was becoming common in the newspaper and printing business. This involved taking a proof sheet off the existing press and then taking the proof sheets to the Renfrew Advance for printing on its offset press. In 1961, the same year that Stittsville was becoming an incorporated, separated village municipality, Howard was joined by his brother Lloyd Maguire who had been working for the Hamilton Spectator newspaper. On September 14, 1961, the Stittsville News began weekly publication, first on Thursdays and later switching to Wednesdays. It generally ran eight pages in a tabloid format. Indeed, The Stittsville News has been a tabloid sized newspaper for virtually all of its 50 years of existence, except for a small period of time in the 1973-74 time frame when it experimented with a full metro sized format under the ownership of Don McCuaig of the Renfrew Advance. The Maguire brothers ran The Stittsville News until June, 1972. During the Maguire years, the business included not only publication of the newspaper but also a busy job printing enterprise. At one time there were seven area auctioneers having their auction sale bills printed at The Stittsville News. Other printing jobs

included prize lists for local fairs and various kennel club publications. By 1972, Howard and Lloyd Maguire had tired of running up to Renfrew each week for the printing of the paper. Yet, the price of purchasing an offset press for The Stittsville News office was prohibitive so a decision was made to sell The Stittsville News to the Renfrew Advance which happened in June, 1972, ending the Maguire ownership years for the paper. Howard Maguire went on to become Goulbourn’s first full time fire chief, a position that he was to hold for 23 years. Howard had been a long time volunteer with the StittsvilleGoulbourn Fire Department prior to this. After operating The Stittsville News for three years, the Renfrew Advance sold the paper in May, 1975 to John Curry a young newspaperman who would end up operating the paper for the next 26 years and overseeing its growth and development as indeed the community itself grew and developed. These changes in ownership of the newspaper, twice within half a decade, reflected the changes that had been and were taking place in the Stittsville community. The Stittsville community was experiencing steady residential growth, although nothing of the scope that would eventually take place in the community beginning in the early 1980’s and continuing right through to the present day. But Stittsville would become a community of 2500 people by 1975. It would, by then, have a Lions Club, formed in 1964; be home to a major car dealership, Dilawri Motors, founded in 1963; have experienced robust celebrations celebrating Canada’s centennial in 1967; and

have built an indoor arena following a pervasive and community-wide fundraising initiative. The area served by The Stittsville News was also growing, with Richmond keeping abreast of its rival Stittsville community with a similar residential growth scenario. In addition, Munster as a new home community began in 1970 while residential growth had been taking place in the Glen Cairn area in the northeast corner of Goulbourn Township since 1964, adding another dimension to the newspaper’s coverage area. John Curry, who purchased The Stittsville News in 1975, was a Carleton University journalism graduate who had worked in the newspaper business for six years, first with The Arnprior Guide and then with the Elmvale Lance, a newspaper in the Georgian Bay area north of Barrie. The newspaper was produced as an eight page tabloid in 1975 but then was quickly developed, eventually reaching a newspaper size of 40 and more pages in the 1980’s and 1990’s. Circulation grew; advertising revenues grew; and editorial coverage of the community grew. This, though, reflected in some ways the Stittsville community itself, as more residential growth happened, along with some commercial growth, particularly after the installation of piped services in the community at the beginning of the 1980’s. This began a community growth spurt that continues today, with Stittsville growing to a community of 5,000, then 10,000, then 17,000 and then 22,000, today’s size. And, with new subdivisions still coming on stream and the Kanata West area being developed and the so-called Fernbank Community between Stittsville and Kanata to develop soon, the future population of the area could well reach 50,000. The Stittsville News, under the ownership of John Curry, which lasted from 1975 through to 2001, remained community oriented and, as it had been under the Maguire ownership years, very much a family business. Mr. Curry was helped greatly by his mother, the late Mary Curry, who was involved in the bookkeeping, circulation and typesetting functions of the paper. He also had the help and involvement of his sister, Jane Hill, who then went on to a career in education; and his nephew Patrick Hill, who helped maintain the circulation lists and who produced the addressed paper bags in which the paper was mailed to subscribers each week during the Curry publication years. Patrick handled these duties for over a decade before going on to a career in engineering. And, while not family, others who became involved with the paper were virtually family. Barb Fairbrother of Stittsville handled office duties for The Stittsville News in one manner or another for close to 20 years. John Brummell first began covering events for The Stittsville News in the late 1970’s as a friend and volunteer and is now a full-time reporter and photographer for the community newspaper.

It was through the efforts of this team and others and with the support and help of the community and its many groups and organizations that The Stittsville News was able to grow and flourish through the Curry ownership years. It came to reflect the Curry journalism philosophy that people are what is important in news coverage as in life in general. This meant coverage of local schools, sports and events as well as continued coverage of political and development issues. It meant putting people first and using the pages of The Stittsville News to reflect the increasingly active community life of the Stittsville and Goulbourn communities. A Richmond Report section was added to the paper as increased emphasis was placed on Richmond news coverage. This counteracted somewhat the loss of Glen Cairn coverage and readership in the years after the creation of the new city of Kanata in 1979 and its departure from Goulbourn township’s jurisdiction. Going into the 1980’s, The Stittsville News became the first community newspaper in the province to join the Ontario Press Council which up to that time had only had daily newspaper members. Mr. Curry had felt that weekly journalism and publishing was the equal of daily newspaper publishing, only with a different focus, and so it should adhere to the same standards and ethics as the daily newspaper industry. Belonging to the Ontario Press Council was a statement of this belief. The Ontario Press Council today has 195 community newspaper and specialized publication members, along with 38 daily newspapers. The Stittsville News, under John Curry’s ownership, had several office locations in Stittsville. It began with an office at the Bell Service Centre which was located where the Ultramar gas bar on Stittsville Main Street is today. It then located after a number of years to the MacDougall Sales and Service building which is now the home of Captain Sandy’s travel agency. Then, in 1989, The Stittsville News located in a small building on Stittsville Main Street just south of the MacDougall Sales and Service location. This had at one time been the D’Crus real estate office and later a Toomey Photography studio. This building was soon torn down with the construction of the Manchester and Main Plaza, with The Stittsville News relocating to a unit of the plaza where the newspaper office is still located today. During these years, The Stittsville News always did its own layout and preparation of the pages but then had the paper actually printed off-site. From 1975 to 1977, this was at Renfrew but in 1977, The Stittsville News switched to printing at Performance Print-

ing in Smiths Falls because of a scheduling situation. The Stittsville News continued to be printed at Performance Printing through to 2001 when the paper was sold by John Curry. Recognition and appreciation from the community accumulated to the newspaper over the years in the 1980’s and 1990’s as evidenced by the numerous awards, plaques and certificates which can be found on the office walls today. In addition, the community continued to grow, with more new subdivisions, more schools, more businesses and more activity. The Stittsville News continued to chronicle this growth and community life in its pages. However, in March, 2001, the newspaper was sold to Runge Newspapers, a regional group of community newspapers in such communities as Renfrew, Arnprior, Carleton Place and Kanata. This marked a return of the newspaper to printing in Renfrew, as the Maguire brothers had done from 1970 to 1972. With the sale to Runge Newspapers, John Curry stayed on as editor as did John Brummell who remained as a reporter and photographer. With this change of ownership came added journalistic responsibility for Mr. Curry and Mr. Brummell as The Stittsville News was joined by the Stittsville Weekend Signal, a total market penetration, free distribution newspaper which had been started by Runge Newspapers in Stittsville in 1997. This publication then became the Stittsville Weekender. Mr. Curry had sold The Stittsville News to Runge Newspapers in 2001 because of a number of factors. His mother Mary Curry wanted to work a little less in her advancing years. New desktop publishing equipment was needed, requiring a substantial capital investment and bringing with it technological challenges that were better met through a regional group of papers than with a single, stand-alone independent publication. The move to free distribution newspaper products was growing among advertisers, also requiring a major investment of capital and labour for an independent publication. Runge Newspapers already had such a publication for the Stittsville market. As a result, the sale of The Stittsville News to Runge Newspapers seemed like the obvious choice for the best future of The Stittsville News and so it happened in March, 2001. In the immediately ensuing years, The Stittsville News became a totally computerized publishing operation, including the introduction of digital photography and the ensuing use of coloured photographs in the newspaper. Then, in November, 2005, The Stittsville News, as part of the Runge Newspa-

pers group, was sold to Metroland Media, the community newspaper division of the Toronto Star publishing business. So, this Stittsville newspaper, founded in 1957 by a lover of community newspapers in the small community of Stittsville, became the property of the largest community newspaper group in the province, one of over 100 such community newspapers owned and published by Metroland. Once again, as with the sale to Runge Newspapers, John Curry stayed on as editor of The Stittsville News with John Brummell remaining as a reporter and photographer. This sale to Metroland Media resulted in numerous benefits to The Stittsville News including increased human resources benefits, more training, financial resources that permit major investments in press and computer equipment and better access to advertisers and particularly to those advertisers using flyers in their advertising strategy as flyers have become a financial mainstay for community newspapers today. In addition, The Stittsville News now had the support and expertise available from a province-wide group of community newspapers. This was particularly important as the community newspaper industry was entering a challenging new era in which the use of the internet and a web presence were becoming vital and essential. The Metroland group had the in-house expertise and knowledge to make this move to an internet presence as well as a printed presence in the community one that is exciting for both staff and readers. Almost a year and a half ago, Metroland Media purchased Performance Printing of Smiths Falls and its stable of EMC community newspapers, widening the scope and solidifying the Eastern Ontario coverage area of Metroland Media products. In January 2012, The Stittsville News became the Stittsville News EMC, combining The Stittsville News with the Stittsville/Richmond EMC News. Now, the name is being slightly altered again as the Stittsville News will have the name with which it started back in 1957 as virtually all of the Metroland Media newspaper properties in the Ottawa area move to having the name “News.” The Stittsville News has survived through technological and societal changes in the past, be it under the ownership of the Maguire brothers or John Curry or Runge Newspapers. As part of the Metroland newspaper group, which has a commitment to locally produced, locally written and locally involved community newspapers, the future for the Stittsville News is rosy as the publication moves towards 60 years of service to its community, bearing the enviable title as the oldest continuously published community newspaper located in today’s enlarged city of Ottawa.

OSU Academy Player Dylan Lawrence headed to St. FX X-Men After playing for the Ottawa South United Force Academy for the past three years, Dylan Lawrence is now ready to move on to the next stage in his life. The Holy Trinity Catholic High School senior recently signed with the St. Francis Xavier X-Men, and will now spend the next four to five years of his life playing Canadian university soccer in Nova Scotia. St. FX Head Coach Graham Kennedy considers the talented OSU product a coup for the X-Men. “We are absolutely delighted to have a student-athlete like Dylan join our program,” Kennedy says. “I am excited about his potential. We are ‘the little school than can,’ and with recruits like Dylan joining our team, we will succeed.” It was at the 2012 OSU Showcase Tournament that X-Men associate coach Miroslav Novak saw Lawrence play. Strangely enough, however, it was St. FX’s women’s team coach Trevor Reddick who first noticed Lawrence at a local soccer event six years ago. Impressed by then 12-year-old Lawrence’s soccer tricks, Reddick casually mentioned to the young boy that he should play for St. FX one day. Lawrence’s soccer skills have gotten him even more attention recently as he is the co-star of two Youtube videos that feature Lawrence and teammate Stephen Veenema performing tricks around various locations in downtown Ottawa. The first video has over 14,000 views, while the second was officially sponsored by Ottawa Tourism. “We definitely did not expect the outcome we got from the first video,” recounts Lawrence, who helped with editing and production of the videos. “Having CTV and CBC radio contact us about the video, that really motivated us to make another one.” Lawrence has parlayed his video editing skills into his own company: Tacklebox Productions. They are currently filming promotional videos for Jumpstart Canada, a program dedicated to helping less fortunate children get involved in sports. While he would like to polish his production skills during his time at St. FX, Lawrence knows that his new teammates will be counting on him to produce on the pitch as well. “Hopefully, I can help them win a championship because it’s been a few years since they’ve won one,” highlights the playmaking midfielder. “My long-term dream is to play in the MLS, and I hope my route through St. FX will help me reach it.” Lawrence credits his time at OSU for giving him the foundation to reach for the next level. “I loved playing for the OSU. They treated me really well and gave me every opportunity I could get to help me get a scholarship and it paid off,” explains the captain of the ’95 Force boys’ team. “Anybody who is planning to play at the university level, they provide you with opportunities like tournaments and showcases that get you the chance to be seen by university coaches.” While Lawrence is already developing a solid relationship with his new coaches at St. FX, including head coach Graham Kennedy, he says he’ll definitely miss his teammates and mentors from OSU. “I loved all the coaches at OSU, especially my head coach Mahmut Adulovic,” Lawrence notes. “I have great relationships with them and they’re people that I’m going to stay in contact with throughout my years.”

CHILD WELFARE AWARENESS MONTH The Canadian Association of Social Workers celebrates National Social Work Week to recognize social workers contribution to society. The theme this year is: “Restoring Hope: The power of Social Work”. Throughout the month of March, the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa (CASO) is taking this one step further and bringing awareness to all workers associated with child welfare. These individuals play an important role in ensuring children, youth and families of our community are kept safe and secure. They are involved with the planning and delivery of a variety of services, such as: family support services, advocacy, foster care placement, and child protection, to name a few. They seldom get the recognition they deserve, in fact, if things go well, we never hear about it. There are many committed individuals whose efforts have made positive changes in the lives of countless vulnerable children and families.

Wrestlers looking for sponsors Special to the News

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 corporate 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.

Novice Rams win Special to the News

EMC sports - The road to the championship final at the Arnprior tournament this past weekend (March 2-3) was fairly smooth for the Stittsville Novice Rams, outscoring the opposition by healthy margins. But the championship game on Sunday morning, March 3 was no romp for the Rams by any means.

Lenten sacrifice just Mary Cook’s Memories between me and God MARY COOK

As far as Father was concerned, Mother had taken this Lent business too far. Giving up meat herself every Friday all year was one thing, but taking it off the menu for everyone during Lent was another kettle of fish altogether. No meal was complete without a good platter of meat on the table, according to Father, and now Lent was here, whatever that meant. Not only did Father think Mother’s idea of everyone giving up meat on Fridays was like asking a farmer to give up chores, but now she was pressing everyone to give up something they loved for the entire few weeks of Lent. She suggested Father might want to give up his pipe: as if to show his defiance, he put a match to it, which was already going at full steam. “It will be good discipline for the children,” Mother said and she asked us to think long and hard at what each of us could sacrifice. Mother said if we wanted, we could give up something and not tell anyone else what it was. It would be our secret between us and God. Well, my sister Audrey wanted everyone to know she was giving up butter. Audrey loved butter, especially since Mother started adding a few drops of yellow colouring to what came out of the churn -- before that it was as white as the driven snow. She was going through her religious phase and Audrey fell right in with Mother’s orders that we five children think long and hard at what we could give up in the name of Lent. My brother Earl wanted everyone to know he was giving up whittling. Audrey thought it had to be something you ate, so Earl switched to turnips. Emerson, who said he was giving up pie, lasted one meal, so he switched to gum. His chances of getting a package of gum were pretty slim back in the 30s, so that wasn’t much of

sacrifice for Emerson. Everett loved dill pickles and he told everyone within earshot he wouldn’t be taking another dill until Mother told him Lent was over. Now, I loved my food. I ate every meal as if it was my last one on earth. I hated head cheese and blood pudding, but this time of year our supply of both had pretty well run out. I had no idea what I could give up that wouldn’t seriously affect my mealtimes. I thought long and hard, but couldn’t come up a thing. I took my problem to my older and much wiser sister Audrey, who was always able to come up with a solution to just about anything that ailed me. She suggested I give up either butterscotch discs or baloney, both of which she knew I loved with a passion, ever so much more that licorice pipes and humbugs which Mr. Briscoe often thrust in my hand at his general store. Little did he know, I either used them to bribe my brother Emerson or tossed them into the nearest shrubbery on the way home -- I had no taste for either. Both of them always made me think of Cascara, which Mother had great faith in, and whether we needed it or not we were often made take a heaping spoonful “just in case.” In case of what I had no idea! I knew perfectly well if I gave up baloney or butterscotch discs, I wouldn’t last a week. I asked my sister Audrey if God would mind if I kept my sacrifice to myself. If it would be diluted if I gave something up, and told no one. Audrey said she would think about it. Finally she said: “I see no reason why you have to tell anyone. It’s between you and God.” I said a silent thank your for this bit of information. I decided there and then to give up licorice pipes

Donating blood

Special to the News

EMC news - Two community blood donor clinics are coming up, one in Richmond and one in Stittsville. These blood donor clinics are being held by Canadian Blood Services. The first one will be held on Friday, March 22 from 4:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the St. Philip Catholic Church parish hall at the corner of Fortune Street and Burke Street in Richmond. There will also be a blood donor clinic held on Wednesday, March 27 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the gymnasium at Holy Spirit Catholic School on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville. To book an appointment at either of these community blood donor clinics, visit or call 1-888-2 DONATE (1-888236-6283). Walk-ins are welcome but booking an appointment helps Canadian Blood Services better plan the clinic and manage the time of all involved, including the donor. All blood donations at these clinics will be most appreciated because every minute of every day in Canada, someone needs blood and the only way that the blood is available when needed is through the generosity and caring of blood donors who willingly

Live DJ, Bikini Fashion Show, Speciality Cocktails and Dancing

attend community blood donor clinics to donate blood. It often requires many units of blood to help just one patient. A car accident victim, for example, can need up to 50 units of blood which means 50 blood donations are needed just to help that one patient. Leukemia patients can need as many as eight units of blood a week as part of their treatment. Canadian Blood Services, which organizes these community blood donor clinics, is a national, not-for-profit charitable organization that manages the blood supply in all provinces and territories in Canada except for Quebec. A separate organization, HemaQuebec, operates in the province of Quebec. Canadian Blood Services organizes more than 22,000 community blood donor clinics across Canada each year. It collects about 850,000 units of blood annually and then processes the blood into the components and products that are administered to thousands of patients each year through blood transfusions. Canadian Blood Services was created in 1998 as a successor to the Canadian Red Cross blood donation program and the Canadian Blood Agency.

Brighten up your winter St. Patrick’s Supper on the 17th this year meals with fresh citrus Special to the News

EMC lifestyle - It may be cold and bleak outside, but your meals don’t have to be. Preparing meals with a sweet splash of citrus not only adds flavour, but also nutrients that can help energize you during the dreary months. “While many fresh fruits and vegetables are out of season in winter, Florida grapefruit is at its peak,” says registered dietitian Lydia Knorr. “Citrus fruit and juices have tremendous flavour, provide your body with a natural boost in energy and are an excellent source of vitamin C.” As a flavour agent and source of essential nutrients, citrus can bring sunshine to any meal. This recipe incorporates citrus fruit and juice for a Thai chicken and grapefruit noodle salad. Ingredients 375 g (12 oz) boneless skinless chicken breasts, thinly sliced 45 ml (3 tbsp) canola oil, divided 30 ml (2 tbsp) grapefruit juice 30 ml (2 tbsp) Thai red curry paste 15 ml (1 tbsp) grated fresh ginger, divided 15 ml (1 tbsp) fish sauce

15 ml (1 tbsp) rice vinegar 1 ml (1/4 tsp) granulated sugar 180 g (6 oz) rice stick noodles 2 ruby red grapefruits, peeled and segmented 1 small red bell pepper, thinly sliced 250 ml (1 cup) bean sprouts 50 ml (1/4 cup) chopped peanuts 1 green onion, thinly sliced 25 ml (2 tbsp) chopped fresh mint Preparation Combine chicken with 15 ml (1 tbsp) of the canola oil, grapefruit juice, curry paste and 10 ml (2 tsp) of the ginger. Coat evenly and set aside. In a bowl, whisk the remaining oil, ginger, fish sauce, vinegar and sugar. Set aside. Cook the noodles for two minutes, then drain, rinse and place them in bowl. Add the grapefruit, red pepper, bean sprouts, peanuts and green onion. Drizzle with dressing, toss well and set aside. In a skillet over medium-high heat, stir fry chicken for about eight minutes, until it is no longer pink. Spoon over noodles and toss. Sprinkle with mint before serving. Makes four servings.

EMC news - The annual St. Patrick’s Supper at St. Clare’s Church at Dwyer Hill is always a highlight, not just for the Irish but for anyone who enjoys a delicious dinner served in friendly surroundings.

from 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in the hall at St. Clare’s Church on Dwyer Hill Road in southwestern Goulbourn.

Catholic Women’s League hosting two events Special to the News

EMC news - The Catholic Women’s League (CWL) of Holy Spirit Parish in Stittsville has two events coming up. The CWL is presenting a Lenten Mary’s Way of the Cross on Friday, March 22 at 6:30 p.m. at Holy Spirit Church on Shea Road in Stittsville. The Way of the Cross will be expressed through the eyes of Mary, Jesus’ mother. After this Way of the Cross, everyone will be able to enjoy a simple poverty meal. Free will donations in support of the Shepherds of Good Hope will be accepted. Everyone is welcome to attend. For more information about this Lenten Mary’s Way of the Cross, please call 613432-9283 or email On Saturday, April 20, the CWL of Holy Spirit Parish will be hosting its annual Women’s Breakfast.

She will be speaking about “The Year of Faith.” Everyone is welcome to attend. For more information about this Women’s Breakfast, please contact Lois Desjardine at 613-432-9283 or via email at

The CWL is now in the fourth year since its founding, having grown to 71 members currently. The CWL meets on the fourth Tuesday evening of each month. In addition, the CWL hosts hospitality Sundays once a month at the church. The CWL is paying one-third of the purchase price of a new industrial dishwasher for the parish hall so that more food-related events can be hosted there. Before Christmas, the CWL held its annual bazaar at the Holy Spirit Parish Hall which once again was a great success, attracting folks not only from the parish but also from the wider community. Those attending got to enjoy a tasty lunch while being able to purchase baking and crafts. Several CWL ladies go to the Shepherds of Good Hope in downtown Ottawa once a month in order to help serve the homeless. This year, for the first time, the CWL will be presenting a $500 academic award to a graduating student at Sacred Heart. If you would like more information on the CWL at Holy Spirit Parish in Stittsville, please contact Lois Desjardine at 613-432-9283 or via email at

‘Pink Shirt Day’ at Guardian Angels Catholic School Students at Guardian Angels Catholic School in Stittsville sport “pink shirts” in support of anti-bullying and show support for “Pink Shirt Day” on Wednesday, Feb. 27. Since 2007, the last Wednesday in February has been observed as “Pink Shirt Day” to commemorate the actions of two high school students who took a stand against bullying when a younger student was being picked on for wearing a pink shirt. On “Pink Shirt Day,” students at Guardian Angels Catholic School took that same stand and came together as a community to say “no” to bullying behaviour.
