EMC news - The Easter Bunny – or more speciďŹ cally the Bunny’s goodies – were a big hit at Bandmaster Park in the Fairwinds community in Stittsville on Easter Sunday morning. It was the occasion of the ďŹ rst Easter Egg Hunt in the park, hosted by the Easter Bunny and the Fairwinds Community Association for the children of the Fairwinds community. And the youthful “Easter egg huntersâ€? were eager. Youngsters and their parents began assembling at the park as early as 7:40 a.m. for the publicized 8 a.m. start of the Hunt.

Stations of the Cross at Sacred Heart John Curry

john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - The Stations of the Cross depict the passion and death of Jesus Christ. But while the Stations of the Cross are a traditional Catholic practice that is particularly significant around Easter time, making the 14 Stations meaningful not just as a story of Christ’s journey to Calvary but also relevant to today’s society and its lifestyle, particularly for youth – now that’s a challenge. It was a challenge, though, met by the students in Ms.

Marina Westbrook’s grade ten drama class at Sacred Heart Catholic High School in Stittsville when they presented the Stations of the Cross in dramatic form on stage at the school on Holy Thursday, March 28. In fact, they presented it three times throughout the day, with different grade levels of students witnessing the different productions in the school’s theatre. This was the first time that Sacred Heart Catholic High School has done something special on Holy Thursday. Ms. Westbrook, in musing on why

this was, mentioned it to her grade ten class. And the class’ response was enthusiastic and positive – they wanted to do something. Indeed, a number of the students had been involved in something similar back in grade six and so they easily related to the concept. Noah Rooney, the student who ended up playing the role of Jesus in the dramatic presentation of the Stations of the Cross at Sacred heart, had even played the role of Jesus in his grade six production. But this was to be more than just a dramatic presentation of the traditional Stations of the Cross. The idea was to try to make the Stations of the Cross meaningful in a modern context, not just as a religious story but as a story with messages applicable to everyday life and happenings for today’s youth. Central, of course, to the Stations of the Cross is the cross and it quickly was discovered that Sacred Heart did not have an appropriate cross that could be used in this planned drama presentation. This problem was quickly solved as sufficient funds were found and Sacred Heart technology teacher Marc Beaudry crafted an appropriate wooden cross. It was this wooden cross which stood in a spotlight in the centre of the rear of the stage in the school’s theatre when the curtain opened and this dramatic presentation of the Stations of the Cross began on Holy Thursday. The 14 Stations portrayed by the 20plus students, many dressed in Biblical-era costumes, depicted the story of Jesus’ death on the cross on that first Good Friday. But what made this presen-

JOHN CURRY/METROLAND

In the tableau about the Second Station of the Cross, namely Jesus carrying His cross, performed at Sacred Heart Catholic High School in Stittsville on Holy Thursday, March 28 are, from left, students Mary Ella McCarville, a Roman soldier; Stephen Hickson, a Roman soldier; Noah Rooney as Jesus; and Morgan Pitson and Victoria Gay as onlookers. tation with its 14 “tableaus” or scenes so much more meaningful and pertinent for the audience of students was not just the religious story as told through the Stations of the Cross but also was the verbal questions posed that connected what happened so long ago with what is happening in the daily lives of today’s youth. So, as Jesus was condemned to death by Pilate with no one defending Him, the point was made: students sometimes similarly feel alone and abandoned, just like Christ was before Pilate, when they are treated unfairly. Or in the tableau about the Third Station when Jesus falls with His cross for the first time with no one seeming to want to help, the question arises: when things get difficult, a person sometimes gives up early in the battle. Christ did not in carrying His cross – why should we today? Or at the Station where Christ meets His mother, a friendly face in the crowd that first Good Friday, the question arose: sometimes kids pick on

another child who tries looking around for a friendly face and helping hand or an adult is sometimes overwhelmed by events and looks around for a friendly face and helping hand. Where are these friendly faces and helping hands? So this depiction in the Stations of the Cross can apply to everyday happenings today. And so it went, with each individual tableau or dramatic presentation – Simon of Cyrene helps Jesus carry His cross. Question: as a child, you sometimes see someone who needs help and don’t give it; similarly as an adult, others might need your help but it is not forthcoming. Where is the Simon of Cyrene in us? Christ has His face washed by a woman in the sixth Station of the Cross. Do we sometimes have a friend who needs help or understanding but don’t reach out to the person? This was the question posed for this Station. The 11th Station where Jesus is nailed to the cross brings forward questions about the behaviour of today. As a child,

do I gang up on others or do I say or do hurtful things to another. As an adult, do I judge others based on race or other similar irrelevant factors? And with the 13th Station when Jesus is taken down from the cross, it was noted that often people are kinder in their thoughts about a person after that person dies. We should all learn to be kinder to the person when he or she was alive. So, thanks to the work of the students in embracing the concept in making it meaningful to what’s happening in society today and not just as a telling of the story of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, this dramatic presentation at Sacred Heart about the Stations of the Cross was an experience for all of Sacred Heart’s students that not only got them recalling the death of Jesus and why He died but also got them thinking about how these 14 scenes depicted in the Stations of the Cross can and do relate to life today and the choices that are made by people each and every day.

Preparing for your Baby We have all seen the ads. A pregnant woman glowing with a happy face, and round belly, watching kids play on the swings while she sips her decaf latte. She warmly lays a hand on her unborn child. The sun is shining. The birds are tweeting. You may ask: is this the reality of being pregnant? It looks simple! While pregnancy is a special time, it can also have emotional and physical ups and downs. While the sun is shining, and the birds are tweeting, what you do not see in the ad is what the woman is thinking. Some common thoughts of parents-to-be are: • “How am I going to prepare for this baby?” • “How do I get ready for breastfeeding?” • “How do I keep my baby safe and healthy once he/she is here???” Prenatal classes are a great way to obtain answers to many of your questions and more. Ottawa Public Health (OPH) offers online prenatal education with free companion classes for parents-to-be and those looking for a refresher. The course includes three in-person sessions, each 2 hours in length. Classes are in the evening or on Saturday mornings at four library sites. Sites include Nepean Centrepointe, Ruth E. Dickinson (Barrhaven), Alta Vista and Cumberland. These classes can:

Written by the Reproductive Health Team

• help pregnant women and their partners feel more confident about the upcoming birth; • feel better prepared for breastfeeding and; • help parents make informed decisions about labour, birth and the care of their baby. The classes are led by a public health nurse. They provide pregnant women and their partners with expert information and the chance to meet with other expectant families. Katie Souliere, a pregnant woman, recently took the OPH prenatal class at the Cumberland branch. Her and her husband said that “after participating in the prenatal classes [they] felt better prepared for baby’s arrival in terms of what to expect before, during and after the labour. [They] now feel more confident about bringing baby home…”. Katie says that while there is a lot of information available online, she and her husband “…weren’t aware of the amount of resources available in the community to support [them] with postnatal care such as breastfeeding and postpartum depression support groups.” So, grab your decaf latte, take a seat in the sun, open your computer and go to www.ottawa.ca/ prenatal. Enroll in our free prenatal classes. It will provide you with the confidence, knowledge and breastfeeding information for your new baby.

Prevent the Spread Written by public health nurse Ginette Smith

Every year in Canada, whooping cough kills 1 to 3 infants who did not receive or follow the proper vaccination schedule.

Pertussis is a highly contagious infection that affects the respiratory system and spreads easily in the air when an infected person coughs, sneezes, and talks. Symptoms are initially mild (similar to the common cold) but as the weeks progress, the mild cough may turn into a severe, violent cough, lasting weeks to months. Babies and young children are at the greatest risk of serious complications, such as breathing difficulties, choking spells,

The first dose of the pertussis vaccine is given at 2 months of age; however, babies are not fully protected until they receive all the doses of this vaccine. During this time, babies and young children are surrounded by parents, older siblings, grandparents, friends, caregivers and others who unknowingly may be infected with pertussis, and can transmit it to the child.

April 20-27, 2013, is World Immunization Awareness Week. Take this time to talk with your health care provider to see if you and your family are up-to-date.

Babies and young children are routinely immunized with selected vaccines when they are 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, and 18 months. This early vaccines protect against five different diseases, including pertussis, commonly known as whooping cough.

As of August 2011, all adults from 19 to 64 years of age in Ontario who did not receive one as a teenager are eligible to receive one publicly funded dose of the tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis (Tdap) vaccine to better protect adults against pertussis and importantly, to decrease the transmission of the infection to young children.

A tale lacking in substance

I

n the play Macbeth, Shakespeare describes life as â&#x20AC;&#x153;a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury signifying nothing.â&#x20AC;? He just as easily could have been referring to the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s planning process: endless meetings filled with talk but often devoid of discussion. It is a process that is frustrating for the public, frustrating for city staff, and, at times infuriating for the developers. The element of conflict is baked into the recipe of site plans and rezoning applications â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a development proposal never meets everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vision of the character of the surrounding neighbourhood. But conflict should be an opportunity for rational discourse and a little constructive give-andtake, resulting in a compromise. Instead, it often turns into a standoff between two diametrically opposed camps. It drags on for months at community consultations and at city hall before finally (in worst case scenarios) landing at the feet of the Ontario Municipal Board. Too often we witness members of the public show up at consultation meetings armed only with emotional arguments. Bitter words are often exchanged, but little else.

If the city wants to encourage rational discourse and limit pointless debate and time spent wasted arguing lost causes at the OMB, it must start by educating the public. We sympathize with the publicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s confusion about the planning process, with the city still trying to harmonize its zoning rules â&#x20AC;&#x201C; something which hopefully will fall into place during the review of the Official Plan. It starts and ends with education. The city already offers planning primer courses throughout the year, explaining how planners evaluate development proposals, zoning rules, how secondary plans fit with the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s official plan and a discussion about how the OMB works. More people might take advantage of this set of courses if they were offered throughout the city â&#x20AC;&#x201C; instead of just at city hall â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and working in conjunction with the various community associations that pepper the municipality. Developers, for their part, can also participate in the process, by participating in or speaking at some of these courses. Providing a forum for rational debate meets the needs of everyone â&#x20AC;&#x201C; developers, the city and the public included.

The cuddliness factor and Canadian politics

L

ess than a week after the tabling of his governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget, Stephen Harper went to Toronto to meet two pandas arriving from China. The news pictures coming out of that event were much nicer than the news pictures coming out of the budget because there were no pandas involved in the budget. Stephen Harper knew that. He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get where he is by not understanding such things. Everybody looks better standing with a panda and everybody sounds better talking about pandas, even when what they say is absurd. For example, hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what the prime minister said at the Toronto airport: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Over the coming years these pandas will help us learn more about one another while serving as a reminder of our deepening relationship, a relationship based on mutual respect and growing collaboration.â&#x20AC;? This will come as quite a surprise to the pandas, who figured that all they had to do in their lives was stay in the cage, eat bamboo, breed and get used to people in Toronto Maple Leafs caps waving at them. Now they find out they are supposed to help Canadians and Chinese learn more about each other, as well as serve as a reminder of a deepening relationship.

Funny Town What a job description for a panda. But what a great coup for the prime minister to be at the centre of this happy event, surrounded by more photographers than ever show up at, say, the opening of a new prison. This is because pandas are cuddly â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d ever want to try to cuddle one because they are big and have sharp teeth and probably donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand English or French very well just yet. At a safe distance, however, pandas are more cuddly, even, than dogs. We know this because of developments in the Pooch CafĂŠ comic strip in the Citizen, where the dogs are deeply concerned that their capacity to be adored by people is being undermined by cute pandas. All of this is to say the prime minister Published weekly by:

chose wisely. It also suggests one of large problems confronting Canadian politicians is a shortage of pandas. All of them would like to be seen next to one and be able to make speeches about how they serve as reminders of deepening relationships. Imagine Jim Watson, mayor of Ottawa, being able to talk about pandas instead having to say something, one way or the other, about casinos. That would be such an improvement for him. Even if he had bad news to announce, such as the decision to locate a casino on the lawn of the Supreme Court, having a panda beside him when he made the announcement would make it so much more palatable. Similarly, having a panda present at the announcement of each new 23-story building in Ottawa would make the looming shadows over residential neighbourhoods so much easier to take. The panda, not the building, would be in the shot. Put a panda on the west lawn of the Museum of Nature when you announce that it is going to be a parking lot. Put a panda in front of CIDA when it closes. Hey, how about the Ottawa Pandas as the name of the new CFL team? Who could object? Sadly, there are simply not enough pandas

to go around. Already in short supply, they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t breed as enthusiastically as they might (maybe they just like to cuddle). So just to get two to come to Canada is a pretty great thing. In the absence of pandas, the hunt is on for creatures of significant cuddliness who could serve politicians as an acceptable substitute. Our customary national symbols, the beaver and the Canada goose, have enemies. Penguins, also celebrated in Pooch CafĂŠ, would find our climate too warm. Clever politicians have already found a substitute: hockey players. Wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Barack Obama posing with some of them just the other day?

EMC news - Is 4H in your plans for 2013? If you are between the ages of 10 and 21, you are eligible to enjoy a spring, summer and fall with other youth, learning how to care for and show animals and all about the basics of animal husbandry. You also can learn how to identify and judge field crops. You can do this with the Ashton 4H Club, a community 4H club that will welcome you with open arms. Indeed, you don’t have to be living on a farm. All youth are eligible to join. You also don’t have to have an animal such as a calf which is pretty hard to do in any case if you don’t live on a farm. There is the possibility of loaner animals for the 4H project that is part of a Club member’s activities.

Top athletic award for Meghan Corley-Byrne Special to the News

EMC sports - Meghan Corley-Byrne of Stittsville has received one of Mount Allison University’s top athletic awards. Meghan, who has been a goalie with the Mount Allison Mounties women’s hockey team for the past five seasons, received the Joy Taylor Memorial Award at the university’s recent 2013 Athletic Awards Night. This award is presented annually to recognize and honour the outstanding female athletes in the graduating senior class. Meghan, a South Carleton High School graduate, is completing her fifth year of studies in English at Mount Allison University in Sackville, New Brunswick. For five consecutive seasons, she has been a standout between the pipes for the Mount Allison Mounties women’s hockey team. She has been one of the top goalies in the Atlantic University Sport (AUS) conference, receiving accolades along the way in her career. She was the team’s Rookie of the

Year and was selected as an AUS second team all-star in the 2009-2010 season. She was also an AUS first team all-star in the 2010-2011 season. In the recent AUS women’s hockey championships hosted by Mount Allison University, Meghan was selected as the game’s MVP in both of the Mounties last two games of the tournament and of the season. These were the final two games of her university hockey career. In an email comment on Meghan’s receipt of this award and the completion of her university hockey career, Sue Seaborn of Mount Allison University Sports Information termed Meghan’s departure from the women’s hockey team as “the end of an era.” And one of those who was around for that “era,” including time as head coach of the Mounties women’s hockey team as he completed his 35 year coaching career at Mount Allison, was Jack Drover, a legendary coach who still attends many team practices and

games even though he is retired. He, in fact, was the one who presented Meghan with her award at the Athletic Awards Night. He writes in an email that he has many treasured memories of Meghan’s play, with possibly the most special being when she was in her freshman year and stopped over 60 shots in a game, leading the Mounties to a 1-0 victory over St. Thomas University. He notes that Meghan is one of the few goalies that he coached in his 35 year career who would ask for more shots and more challenging shooting drills in practices, echoing her saying “bring it on.” Current Mount Allison Mounties coach Zach Ball calls Meghan quite simply “an icon of Mounties hockey.” “She has been among the top goaltenders in our league since she arrived at MTA (Mount Allison University),” he wrote about Meghan in an email, noting her status as an AUS all-star, team rookie of the year and team Most Valuable Player.

Stittsville’s Doug Sinclair becomes Pinafore’s Bill Bobstay John Curry

john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - In daily life, Doug Sinclair of Stittsville is a retired senior. But for a few hours on six days coming up, Doug is going to be Bill Bobstay, the boatswain’s mate aboard the H.M.S. Pinafore as he performs on stage in The Savoy Society of Ottawa’s production of the Gilbert & Sullivan comic opera of the same name, H.M.S. Pinafore. It’s not, though, as if Doug has just come across his alter-ego as Bill Bobstay. He has been linked with this boatswain’s mate since being selected for the part after auditions last September. Since then, it has been weekly rehearsals, leading to a more intensive rehearsal schedule of late as the performance dates for the show come closer. The Savoy Society’s production of H.M.S. Pinafore will happening on the stage at the new theatre at Algonquin College on Thursday, April 11, Friday, April 12 and Saturday, April 13 as well as on Thursday, April 18, Friday, April 19 and Saturday, April 20 when the show will wrap up with two shows, one a 2 p.m. mati-

nee. All of the other shows are at 8 p.m. So, it’s seven shows in all – seven times when Doug Sinclair will become Bill Bobstay, the boatswain’s mate, one of the production’s leading roles. “I love Gilbert and Sullivan music,” Doug says in explaining his involvement with The Savoy Society. Last April he was a member of the chorus for The Savoy Society’s production of “The Mikado,” another Gilbert & Sullivan masterpiece. He says that all of the songs in Gilbert & Sullivan comic operas are witty and deal with the universal human condition. “I love doing it,” Doug adds, noting that he hopes to keep being involved with The Savoy Society and its productions for as long as he can. He says anyone can get involved with the all-amateur group. Those who can’t sing can build props or do other duties related to a production. “All of their plots are beautifully silly,” Doug says about Gilbert & Sullivan productions, noting that Gilbert was always poking fun at British society while Sullivan wrote tremendous music to accompany the efforts of the wordsmith Gilbert.

He admits that taking on the role of Bill Bobstay, the boatswain’s mate in this production of H.M.S. Pinafore, is a step up from being part of the chorus as he was in last April’s production of “The Mikado.” He is confident that he and the others in the cast will all have their roles polished and superb when the production hits the stage beginning next week. “You don’t want to go out there and put on a fumbling show,” he says, revealing his performer’s pride. He readily admits that he is having a lot of fun involved with this H.M.S. Pinafore production. “The plan is to have the audience have fun too,” he says. This shouldn’t be hard with the great music and lyrics along with the colourful costumes and sets that will be involved in this production of H.M.S. Pinafore. This will be Doug’s third appearance in a Savoy Society production. Besides being in “The Mikado” last April, he had earlier appeared as a member of the chorus in “The Gondoliers,” another Gilbert & Sullivan comic opera. For Doug, his involvement in musical theatre with The Savoy Society is just a contin-

Doug Sinclair uation of what has been a lifelong passion for singing, starting back when he was just a youth, singing in the car when travelling with his parents, both of whom were avid singers who sang in church choirs. While much of his singing has also been in church choirs, he remembers attending a Gilbert & Sullivan production with his parents when he was about ten years old and literally falling in love with Gilbert & Sullivan music, a love affair that has continued to this day.

It was not until 1982, though, after long singing with church choirs, that he became involved in Gilbert & Sullivan and other musical productions in Vancouver, always as a member of the chorus. After Vancouver, he was involved with a local theatre group in Fort St. John in northern British Columbia. Then, when he moved to Ottawa and settled in Stittsville, he resumed singing in a church choir. It was not until 2009 that he auditioned with The Savoy Society of Ottawa for a role in the chorus of “The Gondoliers.” H.M.S. Pinafore is a comic opera that originally opened in London in 1878 and was Gilbert & Sullivan’s first international sensation. The story takes place aboard the British ship H.M.S. Pinafore. The captain’s daughter is in love with a lower class sailor, although her father intends her to marry Sir Joseph Porter, the First Lord of the Admiralty. She abides by her father’s wishes at first but Sir Joseph’s advocacy of the equality of humankind encourages the daughter and her sailor/lover to overturn con-

ventional social order, declaring their love for each other and planning to elope. The captain discovers this plan but as is typical in Gilbert & Sullivan operas, a surprise disclosure changes things dramatically near the end of the story. The plot is imbued with mirth and silliness and in this production by The Savoy Society of Ottawa, the dialogue will have some local and modern references as well. The humour in H.M.S. Pinafore focuses on love between members of different social classes as the opera pokes satire at the British class system in general. Tickets at $30 each for The Savoy Society of Ottawa’s production of H.M.S. Pinafore at the new Algonquin College theatre running from Thursday, April 11 through Saturday, April 13 and then again from Thursday, April 18 through Saturday, April 20 can be obtained by phoning The Savoy Society at 613-825-5855 or the Algonquin College theatre box office at 727-4723, ext. 6442 or by emailing tickets@ ottawasavoysociety.org or by going online at http://www.ottawasavoysociety.org/ .

NEWS St. James Anglican Church in Manotick is hosting two community workshops this spring: Kids and Drugs, and SafeTALK on Suicide. Kids and Drugs workshop, on Saturday, April 13th, will provide adults with ideas and strategies for engaging children about drug usage. This is not speciďŹ c to Fentanyl, but will cover the many drugs that are available and evolving in the Ottawa area. Ottawa Police and RCMP ofďŹ cers will discuss ways to equip children to handle the constant mix of peer pressure, emotions, social situations, and other everyday stresses that can lead to drug use. This workshop is aimed at any adults that are involved with children from grades 5 to 8. The cost is $10 per participant and includes lunch. This workshop runs from 9:00am to 2:00pm at the St. James Anglican Church, 1138 Bridge Street, Manotick. SafeTALK workshop, on Saturday, April 27th, will prepare participants to identify persons with thoughts of suicide and how to connect them with aid resources. Most people with thoughts of suicide invite help at some point to stay safe. This workshop trains participants to recognize when a person may have suicidal thoughts, and helps move beyond the common tendency to dismiss or avoid them. The safeTALK method involves engaging with open talk about suicide, listening to and recognizing their thoughts are serious, and moving quickly to connect them with suicide intervention and ďŹ rst aid resources. This workshop is aimed at anyone over the age of 15. The cost for this workshop is also $10 and runs from 9:00am to 2:00pm as well. Registration is limited to 30 participants and this workshop is also being offered at St. James Anglican Church. Contact Donna Rourke 613-825-1913 or Sam Hills 613-6922082 to register for these workshops.

Ladies Chorus concert on April 20th John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

DOOR-TO-DOOR KNOCKING & BREAK AND ENTER CONCERNS With the warmer weather around the corner, there has been an increase in door-to-door interaction. I want to remind residents to be wary of strangers claiming to be various home inspectors. The City is warning residents of salespeople approaching homes and falsely representing themselves as city employees/private company employees sent to perform quality tests. There have been numerous complaints of aggressive sales techniques and questionable tactics (including false claims or data) to encourage residents to provide entrance into their residences. As with any door-knocking situation, do not feel pressured to answer questions or to allow a stranger into your residence and feel free to terminate the conversation when you no longer wish to engage with them. If you ask them to leave your property and they do not, please call Police. Anyone directly contacted by persons claiming to be City employees for City business are asked to request and check identification, and, if concerns remain, contact 3-1-1 before allowing access. Please report all non-emergency situations to the Stittsville Community Police Center at 613-236-1222 x2001.

Season ends on high note Special to the News

EMC sports - Talk about ďŹ nishing on a high note. It was the last game of the season for the Richmond Novice C White team â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the last time that this group of players would play together. And they skated away with the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bâ&#x20AC;? side championship in the recent Ottawa Year End Tournament in support of Rogerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s House. After losing its opening game of the tournament, the Richmond Novice C White team roared back with four straight wins to capture the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bâ&#x20AC;? side championship trophy and the gold medals that went with the victory. For goalie Brendan Denault, it was a particularly memorable tournament as he recorded three shutouts in the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ ve games, earning the outstanding player award for the tournament. Now thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quite a way to end your novice hockey years. Brendan, along with teammates Noah Bellamy and Madison Emard, will be moving up to atom hockey next season. The trio was given the honour of accepting the championship trophy on behalf of the team after the ďŹ nal game. And while the players on

this team are skilled hockey players as evidenced by their tournament victory, playing hard, listening to their coaches and having fun, they also know that hockey involves sportsmanship. You only had to be at the championship game to see this in action. Noah Bellamy of the Richmond Novice C White team received a lot of crowd applause in this game with a display of sportsmanship. He was involved in a collision with a Nepean player. Noticing that his opponent was hurt as a result, Noah helped the player up. An example of sportsmanship at its best. Just how did the Richmond Novice C White team capture the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bâ&#x20AC;? side championship in this Ottawa Year End Tournament? Well, things did not start out well on Friday, March 22 when the team lost 3-1 to the Ottawa Centre Ice Breakers despite getting lots of shots on the Ottawa goal. Connor McKellar was the lone goal scorer in the game for the Richmond squad. But then the Richmond Novice C White team got on the winning track and rattled off four straight victories to end up as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bâ&#x20AC;? side champi-

ons. First up on Saturday afternoon, March 23 were the West End Falcons and they fell 40 to the Richmond Whites. Goalie Brendan Denault got the shutout while putting the puck in the net for Richmond were Connor McKellar with two goals, and Daniel Buckley and Taylor Jude with one apiece. It was a real team effort, especially on the defensive side of things. That Saturday evening, the Richmond Novice C White team faced off against the West End Honey Badgers, again winning, this time by a 3-1 score. Daniel Buckley, Abigail McGillis and Connor McKellar scored for Richmond in this game. On Sunday morning, March 24, Richmond moved on to play the Canterbury Knights. This proved to be a very evenly matched game but with Brendan Denault notching a shutout in nets and Daniel Buckley scoring, Richmond skated away with a 1-0 victory and a trip to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bâ&#x20AC;? side ďŹ nal. On the Sunday afternoon, Richmond played against the Nepean Team A in this â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bâ&#x20AC;? side championship ďŹ nal. A

tight defensive game, goalie Brendan Denault again posted a goose egg as Richmond won 1-0 thanks to a goal by Daniel Buckley, the only goal of the game. This gave the Richmond

Novice C White team the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bâ&#x20AC;? side championship in this tournament, quite an accomplishment for a team which had 11 out of its 14 players as ďŹ rst year novice players.

And for player Lloyd Sample, the championship victory on Sunday, March 24 was extra special â&#x20AC;&#x201C; because that day was also his birthday. Quite a birthday present!

Golden time for Caroline Liang Special to the News

EMC sports - The recent Kanata Cup rhythmic gymnastics competition was a golden experience for Caroline Liang of Stittsville. The 12 year old rhythmic gymnast won four – yes, four – gold medals in the competition. She swept all three individual events in her 4B category – free, hoop and ball. This meant that she also was the overall gold medalist in the category. So, count them up – four gold medals in total – what a meet for Caroline! She followed up this gold medal performance by winning an overall bronze medal in the first qualifying meet of the season for rhythmic gymnasts. She won the silver medal in the hoop event while placing fifth in both the free event and the ball event. These results put Caroline in a good position to qualify for the Ontario championships in June. Now, she is working towards good results in her second qualifying meet which is being hosted by her own club, the Kanata Thythmic Gymnastics Club, at the Earl of March High School in Kanata on the weekend of April 20 and 21. This second qualifying meet is expected to attract over 200 rhythmic gymnasts from across the province. Just like Caroline, they will all be trying to place in the top 60 percent in their in-

dividual categories in order to qualify for the provincial championships in June. For more information about the Kanata Rhythmic Gymnastics Club, check out the website at www.krsg.org.

Recycle old electronics

Special to the News

EMC news - You can get rid of those old electronic items that are just collecting dust around your home while also helping raise funds for the Stittsville Public School Council. It’s a win-win situation. It’s all going to happen on Saturday, April 27 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the parking lot at Stittsville Public School on Granite Ridge Drive in Stittsville. There is absolutely no cost to drop off your old electronics. The Stittsville Public School Council will be making its money from funds received from Ontario Electronics Stewardship, with the Council receiving funds for every tonne of old electronics collected. One metric tonne equals 2,204.6 pounds. The funds received will be used by the School Council to support the school and its students. And this electronics recycling depot is happening not only at spring cleaning time but also in the same week as the annual Earth Day celebration which happens on Monday, April 22. Earth Day is a day acknowledged in more than 192 countries around the world in which events are held to support environmental protection. The first Earth Day was held on Wednesday, April 22, 1970 in the United States and it has now spread worldwide.

And just what can you drop off at this electronics recycling depot that will be set up at Stittsville Public School? It can include televisions, monitors, desktop or laptop computers, tablets, peripherals like mice and keyboards, printers, photocopiers, telephones, answering machines, cell phones, home theatre equipment like speakers and turntables, and photo, audio and video equipment. Wow, that’s a lot! Dropping of your old electronics at this depot will ensure that they never end up in the landfill. Much of the plastic and metal can be reclaimed and re-used. In addition, many older electronic items also contained substances that if not handled properly, could have negative environmental impacts. Ontario Electronic Stewardship (OES) is a non-profit industry organization that oversees this RecycleYourElectronics.ca program. OES will be providing an end-of-life electronics receptacle for this recycling event. For more information on this electronics recycling depot event, please email fundraising@spscouncil.com.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Way of the Crossâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; takes place in Richmond john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - The crucifixion of Jesus Christ is the centerpiece of the religious observance of Good Friday. And so it only makes sense that the cross would be a focal point on Good Friday. And this is what it was again last Friday, which was Good Friday, in Richmond as The Way of the Cross took place in the community, just as it has for the past two decades. This year The Way of the Cross began at St. Philip Catholic Church on Burke Street at 10:30 a.m. It was St. Philip parish priest Rev. Bob Poole who led this opening service which ended with a reflection on Pilate condemning Jesus to die. After Rev. Poole pounded the first nail into the wooden cross which was on display at the front of the church, Rev. Poole himself carried the cross out of the church at 10:45 a.m. and led the close to 100 in attendance as the cross was carried to the next church on this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s The Way of the Cross, namely St. John the Baptist Anglican Church on Fowler Street, arriving there after a ten minute walk under cloudy skies, a 5 degree Celsius temperature and patchy snow still on the ground. At St. John the Baptist Anglican Church, Rev. Michel Dubord led the prayer focused on Jesus accepting His cross. Gerry Seed, accompanied by Saundra Vandenberg on the keyboard, filled

the church with his powerful singing voice as part of this service. Rev. Dubord pounded a second nail into the wooden cross which had been placed at the front of the church and then he carried the cross out of the church, followed by those participating in The Way of the Cross. Rev. Dubord carried the cross to the next church on the walk which was St. Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Presbyterian Church on McBean Street where the prayers focused on Jesus being stripped of His garments by the soldiers. It was 13 year old Cassidy Jessome who carried the cross from St. Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s United Church, the next stop on The Way of the Cross. At St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, after seeing a slide-based video showing scenes of Christâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s passion, Rev. Carla Van Delen led the prayers dealing with Jesus being nailed to the cross. After another nail was pounded into the wooden cross at the front of the church, the cross was carried by Marg Walker and Jackie Ivey to the next and final stop on the route of The Way of the Cross which was the Grace Assembly Pentecostal Church at the Richmond Plaza. There Rev. John Spurrell led the prayer dealing with Jesus dying on the cross and then pounded the fifth and last nail into the wooden cross which had been placed at the front of the church. It was all over at 12 noon, with everyone invited to stay for soup and buns at the Grace Assembly to conclude The Way of the Cross.

JOHN CURRY/METROLAND

On Good Friday Cassidy Jessome carries the wooden cross along the McBean Street sidewalk as he carries it from St. Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Presbyterian Church to St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s United Church in the annual â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Way of the Crossâ&#x20AC;? walk in Richmond on Good Friday, March 29.

First its music; then the real thing John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - The music of the renowned Swedish a cappella ensemble The Real Group is coming to the Ottawa area a month before the actual group itself performs here for the first time ever. In fact, the music will be filling St. Thomas the Apostle Church at 2345 Alta Vista Drive in Ottawa this coming Saturday, April 6 at 7:30 p.m. when two Ottawa-based a cappella groups, Quintessence and Harmonic Generation, as well as several other musical groups will be presenting a concert featuring songs written or arranged by The Real Group. And there is a Stittsville connection to all this as both Paul Jay and Paul Melsness, co-owners of the Gaia Java Coffee Company shop in Stittsville, sing with Quintessense as does Paul Jay’s spouse Susan Mayo. In addition, both Quintessense and Harmonic Generation have performed at a Friday music evening at the Gaia Java shop. This April 6th preview concert featuring the music of The Real Group is being held to raise awareness of the upcom-

ing May 8th concert at which The Real Group itself will be performing and also to raise funds to help with the costs to stage this upcoming concert. Other groups performing with Quintessense and Harmonic Generation at this preview concert this Saturday, April 6 will be Tone Cluster, an Ottawa musical ensemble founded in 1994 which does a lot of work supporting Ottawa’s gay community; singers from Canterbury High School; and singers from All Saints High School. There’s also a benefit to those who purchase tickets for this April 6th preview concert will be eligible to obtain discounted tickets to the May 8th concert featuring The Real Group. Tickets for both this Saturday’s preview concert and the May 8th concert are now on sale at the Gaia Java Coffee Company shop at the Stittsville Shopping Centre (Shoppers Drug Mart plaza) on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville. Tickets for the preview concert being held this Saturday, April 6 at 7:30 p.m. at St. Thomas the Apostle Church at 2345 Alta Vista Drive in Ottawa are selling for $15 for adults and $10 for seniors and students. The concert on Wednes-

day, May 8 featuring The Real Group will be held at the new auditorium at Algonquin College. Advance tickets at $25 for students, $35 for seniors and $40 for adults are available online at http://trgottawa. eventbrite.ca or at the Gaia Java shop in Stittsville. The Real Group, which hails from Stockholm in Sweden, is one of the leading exponents of the art of a cappella singing in the 21st century. The grou’s stile includes music for all tastes including vocal jazz, occasional folk flavour, contemporary pop and some original songs. The Real Group, which has five members, has performed in more than 2,000 concerts around the world. In 2002, the group performed at the opening ceremony of the soccer World Cup in Seoul, South Korea. The Real Group was formed in 1984 when its original members were students at the Swedish Royal College of Music. Its debut album was released in 1987 and it has continued to record extensively since then. Over the years it has won awards for best jazz song “Flight of the Foo-Birds” in 1995 and live album of the year “Live in Stockholm” in 1997 and best original pop song in 1997.

Dance 4 Wishes Showcase Special to the News

EMC news - This Sunday, April 7 in Stittsville, local young performers will be on stage dancing to help make a child’s wish come true. Stittsville’s Pointe of Grace Dance Company is holding its Pointe of Grace Dance 4 Wishes Showcase at the Sacred Heart High School theatre this Sunday, with two performances – a junior showcase at 2:30 p.m. and a senior showcase at 6:30 p.m. Net proceeds from this fundraising event will go to Make-A-Wish Eastern Ontario, a non-profit charitable organization that grants wishes to ill children with life threatening medical conditions. These wishes are usually one-of-a-kind experiences for the children and their families and they come at a time when the children need them the most. Amanda Leroux and Carly Sherwin, directors of the Pointe of Grace Dance Company, are proud that their dancers are helping to raise funds for such an inspirational organization as Make-A-Wish Eastern Ontario.

“We really wanted to find something that our young dancers could connect with – something that would make a difference,” said Ms. Sherwin. “The wishes that are granted have such an incredible impact on the families involved.” There are more than 60 dancers on the Pointe of Grace competitive dance team, both boys and girls ranging in age from 5 to 17 years old. They perform a variety of dance styles including ballet, jazz, hip hop, step dancing, lyrical and musical theatre. The dancers have been practicing for months at the Pointe of Grace dance studio on Iber Road in Stittsville, fine tuning their routines for this showcase. “It’s a great opportunity for our dancers to get some more experience on stage and at the same time support a really fantastic cause,” Ms. Sherwin said. Tickets will be on sale at the door at the Sacred Heart theatre this Sunday, April 7. Tickets are $10 per show or $15 for both junior and senior performances.

Two medal winning tournaments for Goulbourn Hornets Special to the News

EMC sports - The Goulbourn Hornets bantam boys basketball team is heading into the provincial championships in Mississauga later this month by coming off two medal winning tournament performances. The Hornets were bronze medalists in the Eastern Ontario Basketball Association (EOBA) championships which ran from Friday, March 20 to Sunday, March 24. The Hornets defeated the Kanata Cavaliers 30-27 and the Kingston Impact 47-46 in preliminary round action in advancing to the medal round of the championships. After losing 47-32 to the Nepean Blue Devils in semi-final action, the Hornets regrouped to defeat the Kingston Impact in the bronze medal match. Indeed, the score was 47-46, identical to the score of the Hornets victory over the Im-

pact in preliminary round action. Who says that lightning never strikes the same spot twice! At the beginning of March, the Hornets captured the silver medals at the Hoopdome Classic Tournament in Toronto. The Hornets defeated CKATT-Mississauga and two Cambridge teams to advance to the championship game on the Sunday, facing a strong Etobicoke squad. The gold medals went to Etobicoke while the Hornets buzzed home with the silver medals. The Goulbourn Hornets bantam boys basketball team, which competes in the AA Division of the EOBA, is led by coaches Bryan Moore and Karl Seiffert who are both alumni of the Goulbourn Basketball Association. The Hornets will be wining up their season on the weekend of April 19-21 by participating in the 2013 provincial championships in Mississauga.

West Carleton downs Stittsville Special to the News

EMC sports - The Johnny Leroux Stittsville Community Arena was the site for the deciding game for the Lanark Carleton Minor Hockey League’s Peewee B Redline playoff championship series on Thursday, March 28. It was the Stittsville 1 team up against West Carleton 2. Stittsville entered this bestof-three championship final series as the regular season champs, having lost only two games during the regular season and undefeated with a win

and two ties in round one of the playoffs. West Carleton 2 had finished in third place in the regular season with a good record of their own, namely 15 wins, 5 losses and 4 ties. In the first round of the playoffs, this West Carleton team had won two games while tying the other, a match against the Stittsville 1 team that was now its opposition in the championship final series. Game one of the championship finals saw West Carleton 2 prevail by a score of 4-2.

Stittsville 1, though, came back with a 2-1 victory in game two of the series, setting the stage for the third and deciding game at the Johnny Leroux Stittsville Community Arena on Thursday, March 28. West Carleton 2 came up big in this deciding game, winning 3-0 thanks to a hat trick from Cameron Duhn and a shutout from goalie Brian Dorman. With this victory, the West Carleton Peewee B2 team became the Lanark Carleton Minor Hockey League Redline playoff champions.

Sacred Heart graduate completes first season John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

EMC sports - A Sacred Heart Catholic High School graduate has

wrapped up her first season with the Mount Allison Mounties women’s hockey team. And Mackenzie Lalonde, who plays forward, must have had a good

season because she impressed longtime, now retired Mounties coach Jack Drover, who, although now retired, still attends many team practices as well as games. He is a Mounties

Stittsville’s Mackenzie Lalonde, left, number 16, of the Mount Allison Mounties women’s hockey team battles for the puck with a Saint Mary Huskies player in Atlantic University Sport action.

legend, having served as the Mounties coach for 35 years before retirement. Mr. Drover is aware that Mackenzie had played for a team coached by Luke Richardson, the former Ottawa Senator who is now coach of the Binghamton Senators or “Baby Sens” of the American Hockey League, adding that Mackenzie had done “very well” in her first year with the Mount Allison Mounties. Mackenzie also has earned praise for her rookie season with the Mounties, who play in the Atlantic University Sport (AUS) women’s hockey league, from current coach Zach Ball. “She has adjusted well to AUS hockey and made a significant contribution in her first season, playing in all situations,” coach Ball reported in an email. A five foot, seven inch forward, Mackenzie wore jersey number 16 for the Mounties this past season. Mackenzie, from Stittsville, is enrolled in a Bachelor of Commerce program at Mount Allison University which is in Sackville, New Brunswick. Her academic goal is to obtain her Commerce degree and then go on for a Masters degree in sports management. In the 2010-2011 season, Mackenzie was the alternate captain for the Sacred Heart Catholic High School Huskies girls hockey team which

won the National Capital Secondary Schools Athletic Association championship. That same season, she was the second leading scorer and alternate captain on the Ottawa District Women’s Hockey Association league champions. This team went on to place fourth in the Ontario provincial women’s hockey championships. Her last team before the Mount Allison Mounties was the Ottawa Women’s Intermediate Senators, a team coached by Luke Richardson. At Sacred Heart, Mackenzie was on the school’s honour roll.

It was at night, when it was pitch black outside, that I dreaded the small clapboard building that sat like a sentry behind a cluster of cedar trees in our back yard. Mother hated the outhouse for an entirely different reason. After living in New York for 18 years, she thought going outside to the bathroom was right up there with drinking tea from a saucer or wearing a soiled apron when company came to the back door. “Uncivilized. That’s all it is, just plain uncivilized,” was her constant lament. Well, we had no choice out there in the back woods of Renfrew County. Our chances of having a flush toilet, like my little friend Joyce had in her brick house, were absolutely nil. We had no running water and there was no electricity or telephone. The very thought of having a flush toilet in the house was like dreaming the Depression wasn’t happening! For the longest time when I was very little, I remember our outhouse having only one hole. But eventually, after Mother complained endlessly, a new one was built by Old Herman, who was considered an outhouse authority out there in Northcote for rea-

sons which escaped me at the time. It was after the second hole was built that my sister Audrey pointed out the bevelled seat Old Herman was famous for. Well, the bevelled seat did little to endear the outhouse to Mother and did less for me, who still dreaded going out once night had settled in. Old Herman had put a latch on both the inside and outside of the door too, which was a vast improvement over the stone on the floor that you shoved with your foot to keep the door closed once you got seated. Yes, the new outhouse was an improvement, but Mother still lamented daily about how it was “an uncivilized way of life” which she never quite got used to. My friend Joyce also had a storebought roll of real toilet paper in her indoor bathroom. It hung on a wire holder on the wall and even when I didn’t have to go, I never failed to use the bathroom when I visited her house. I would reef off a piece of that store-bought toilet paper, just to witness the sheer luxury of the whole experience. Our toilet paper was the no-longer current issue of the Eaton’s catalogue. Father would drive a spike

through the upper left corner of the thick book and feed a piece of heavy binder-twine through the hole, and hang it on a nail on the inside near the door. An entire page was never fully torn out, and by the time the catalogue was well used up, it was almost useless. But it was all we had. Well, except at Christmas time. This was when Mother would ask Mr. Briscoe if she could have the little orange wrappers that came around the oranges he brought in to his General Store only at Christmas. They were only about six inches square, but she would iron them flat and put them in the back-to-the-wall cupboard in a neat little pile and they replaced the Eaton’s catalogue in the outhouse only when we had company. We children were well warned not to use the orange papers -- they were there for a higher clientele. A big pail of lime sat in a corner of the little black outhouse and we were instructed to use a dipper of it often. I confess, I found that chore had little appeal to me. During the day, I had little fear of going into the outhouse, but once it got dark at night, I was filled with dread. So as soon as the daylight started to fade, I made awfully sure I

made a trip out behind the trees to the little building. But the very thought of going through the entire night without emptying my bladder was all it took to create an urgent need. This was when I would beg Audrey to come with me. She thought I was old enough at five or six to go on my own, so I would ask her to light the lantern even thought it had yet to get absolutely dark out. I would go through the summer kitchen and then the wood shed, a long-about way of getting there, because that way I was under cover for most of the trip. My brother Emerson, whose mission in life seemed to be to scare the living daylights out of me every chance he got, would always warn me to stay clear of the coyotes or the big black bear he assured me would like nothing better than to haul a young girl off to the bush. So going out to the outhouse became a constant challenge for me once it got dark at night. There was always the Johnny pot under the bed, but to use it before we retired was out of the question. It was there for emergencies, Mother said. I couldn’t think of a more dire emergency than forcing a young terrified girl out in the dark at night to go to the privy.

FOOD & NEWS Newspaper Toolbox Special to the News

EMC lifestyle - The organic food and drink industry has expanded rapidly, experiencing an average growth of 20 per cent per year on a global scale. What motivates people to buy organic foods? Health, wholesomeness, and respect for the environment are sure to be found at the top of the list. An organic-certified food is produced without the use of any chemical products. The difference between organic and non-organic foods is the absence of all chemical pesticides, herbicides, and preservatives. Eating organic, like our ancestors did, is the only way to avoid the involuntary consumption of substances that are potentially hazardous to our health. Did you know that over time, the ingestion of many food industry chemical substances can lead to a weakening of the immune system and have harmful effects on the mental,

cognitive and physical development of children? In addition, numerous studies have shown that the current antibiotics resistance observed in humans is the direct result of the use of growth hormones and medications given to cattle and pigs raised for slaughter. This is just one of the reasons why organic food is increasingly popular among consumers. An organic product does not contain any more vitamins than a similar non-organic product. A carrot is still a carrot, whether it’s organic or not. Choosing to buy organic is based solely on ecological and social reasons. Buying an organic carrot means knowing exactly what is on your plate. Even better, buying locally produced organic foods means encouraging local producers and reducing the amount of greenhouse gases produced by the transportation of food over long distances. What a great way to contribute directly to the good health of our country and make the most of Mother Nature’s bounty.

Air Cadet Tag Days at four locations in Stittsville Special to the News

EMC news - It’s a fundraising initiative called Tag Days. This coming weekend, from Friday, April 5 through Sunday, April 7, Air Cadets from the 706 Snowy Owl Air Cadet Squadron will be at four locations in Stittsville, accepting donations in return for tags. The Air Cadets will be at Hurley’s (formerly Broadway Bar & Grill) at the Shops of Main Street Plaza; at Brown’s Your Independent Grocer; at Stittsville Sobeys; and at Lowes on Hazeldean Road. This is part of a wider Tag Days program that will see Air Cadets stationed at various locations not only in Stittsville but also in Kanata and Almonte. They are called Tag Days because the Cadets “tag” those who have made a donation, identifying them as supporters and ensuring that they will not be approached again for a donation for the duraction of the Tag Days. This is the 706 Snowy Owl Air

Cadet Squadron’s largest fundraising event of the year, with the funds slated to go towards additional gliding days, musical and sports equipment and trips to museums. It is expected that over 110 Air Cadets will be participating in these Tag Days. Based at the Connaught Rifle Range in Kanata, this 706 Snowy Owl Air Cadet Squadron attracts Cadets not only from Stittsville but also from Kanata, West Carleton, Almonte and Bells Corners. Cadets, ranging in age from 12 to 19, can be found in communities all around the Ottawa area. The 706 Snowy Owl Air Cadet Squadron is one of these Cadet groups. The aim of the Cadet movement is to promote physical fitness, citizenship and leadership. Air Cadets, more specifically, are for those interested in the air component of the Canadian Forces. The main attraction of the 706 Snowy Owl Air Cadet Squadron is that Cadets have the opportunity to

learn to fly, including the chance to fly in a glider as well as in a four-seat light aircraft. A “Ground School” program is offered which teaches the basics of how an aircraft operates. Cadets also have the opportunity to learn how to shoot rifles, fly model aircraft and be part of a pipe and drum corps. And these are only some of the Squadron’s activities. The Cadet program provides opportunities for developing friendships while also learning new skills. There is no cost to the Cadet program and uniforms are provided. For more information about the 706 Snowy Owl Air Cadet Squadron, check out the website at http:// www.706aircadets.ca or call 613998-9089. Those interested are also invited to see the Squadron and its activities personally by attending one of the Squadron’s parade evenings which are held on Thursdays from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. at 1 Brouillette Blvd. at the Connaught Range just off Carling Avenue in Kanata.

SVA wants riding named Stittsville-Carleton John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - The Stittsville Village Association (SVA) thinks something should be done about the name of the proposed new federal riding that will include Stittsville.

The Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission for Ontario has named the new riding, which will stretch across the southern part of the city of Ottawa from west to east, with Stittsville as its largest individual community, as Rideau-Carleton. SVA director David Jenkins, in

reporting on the proposed new federal riding has now been tabled in Parliament at the last SVA executive meeting, expressed disappointment at the name, saying that it would associate everyone in the riding with the Rideau-Carleton racetrack and associated slots, the harness racing

and gambling facility that is located in the area covered by the riding. With public hearings about the proposed new riding and other new ridings and riding re-alignments in the province completed, the only avenue for comment now rests with input to local Members of Parliament. In view of this, the SVA has written to incumbent Carleton-Mississippi MP the Hon. Gordon Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connor

proposing that the name of the new riding should be Stittsville-Carleton. This is because Stittsville, with its 27,000 population, is the largest single population centre in the riding which will have a total population of 95,000. In addition, this would mirror the name being used for the adjacent new riding that covers Kanata and West Carleton which has a proposed name of Kanata-Carleton.

The rain barrels this spring are selling for the same price as last year, namely $55 each. The SVA makes $10 for every barrel sold. The purchase includes the 220 litre/55 U.S. gallon barrel as well as a filter basket, spigot, nipple, overflow adap-

tor and four feet of overflow hose. The rain barrels are made of recycled material as much as possible. One change this year is in the colours available.

Bonnie Smith, centre, front, who is the program co-ordinator for the Richmond community for the Rural Ottawa South Support Services, takes part in a recent zumba class for seniors at the Richmond Memorial Community Centre arena hall in Richmond.

Bonnie Smith loves her job Sydney Steele

Special to the News

EMC news - Bonnie Smith is now doing for the community what she once did for her own parents. “I was a caregiver for my own parents for eight years,” says Bonnie. “I then began to see the need in senior care.” That’s why Bonnie, who is now the program coordinator for the Richmond community for the Rural Ottawa South Support Services, did not return to her career in childhood administration in which she had worked for 25 years but instead returned to school for her degree in social work. This led to her joining the Rural Ottawa South Support Services team and her current role providing programs and services in the Richmond community. The Rural Ottawa South Support Services (ROSSS) was formed in the spring of 2011 when Rideau Community Support Services and the Osgoode Home Support Program merged together with a goal of providing even more programs to seniors and adults with physical disabilities living in the rural south Ottawa area. It took over programming in the rural Goulbourn area including Richmond from the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre which previously had delivered such programs in the area. Rural Ottawa South Support Services tries to make it possible through its programs and services for seniors and disabled adults to remain independent and in their own homes. “We have a whole range of services ranging from transportation to providing meals,” says Bonnie. These services and programs are meant to provide something for everyone. Meals-on-Wheels is one of the programs

which is designed to provide nutritious meals to seniors and disabled adults living in their own homes to ensure that they are eating healthy meals. Rural Ottawa South Support Services administers this program which is run in partnership with the Granite Ridge long term care facility in Stittsville which provides the meals. Volunteers deliver the meals during the week throughout the Richmond community. Rural Ottawa South Support Services also offers different social opportunities for seniors including its diners program. This is a monthly luncheon program held on the third Monday of each month at the St. John the Baptist Anglican Church Hall on Fowler Street in Richmond. “We normally have between 40 and 50 people who attend our monthly diners program,” Bonnie says, noting that there is entertainment from 11 a.m. to 12 noon along with a nice meal. “It is a great social opportunity,” she says. Seniors wishing to attend this diners program must call Bonnie the week beforehand to confirm their attendance due to the popularity of the program. Bonnie notes that while her job providing programs and services for seniors and adults with physical disabilities can be stressful at times, she couldn’t imagine doing anything else. She loves working in the rural communities of south Ottawa and meeting the wonderful people who live in them. For more information about the programs and services offered by Rural Ottawa South Support Services or to become a volunteer, call Bonnie Smith at her Richmond office at 613-219-6982. The office, located at St. John the Baptist Anglican Church Hall on Fowler Street in Richmond, is open on Mondays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on Tuesdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

He is a lovely long haired pewter grey fellow. First few minutes when you meet him he will be shy but once he knows you are visiting him he will show all his sweetness and have his heart on his sleeve. He would love to be loved and made feel that he is special which he is. The more love you give the more he will return to you. Some one who will appreciate his sensitivity will be rewarded with undying devotion. You won’t have to wait long.... once he loves you... you are his for keeps!
