Open a door into the past

Inside NEWS

John Curry

Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri; Visita Leelaratna, who is founder and chair of the Sirin Foundation and Sirin Research Centre; and Rey Taing, a vice-president of the Ottawa-Hull Cambodian Buddhist Association. But the involvement of the mayor and these other dignitaries in the grand opening of this new Ottawa Meditation Garden did not stop at a ribbon cutting. After speeches by Bhante Sam Rath Viriyadhammo, the High Commissioner, the mayor and Visita Leelartna, all of these dignitaries were led by Lalith Gunaratne, an expert teacher on meditation, and the monks in attendance on a meditation walk through the meditation garden, following its rectangular meditation path. It was noted that Buddha himself practiced walking meditation.

EMC news - You can open a door into the past at the Goulbourn Museum this Saturday and Sunday. And this open door will reveal not only the Museum’s artefacts and exhibits which outline Goulbourn’s past but also will give a glimpse of what life was like for pioneer soldiers. That’s because the Blenk family of Munster will be on hand with a pioneer military encampment. You will be able to see how cooking was done in these tent encampments. There will be musket demonstrations. And, of course, the Blenk family will all be in appropriate period costumes. The encampment will be on site on both Saturday and Sunday and indeed the plan is for the Blenk family to be there overnight. Besides this military encampment, the Goulbourn Museum will also be giving tours of its artefact collection. These are artefacts that are not currently on display and hence are not usually seen by the public. In addition, visitors to the Museum this Saturday and Sunday will be able to tour the Museum and enjoy exhibits like The Village Store and one telling about the 100th Regiment of Foot from which many of Goulbourn’s first settlers came. Youngsters will be able to try on pioneer clothing. The Goulbourn Museum will also have information on hand about its upcoming celebration of the War of 1812 on Sunday, June 16. This is all happening this Saturday, June 1, and Sunday, June 2 at the Goulbourn Museum as it is taking part in Doors Open Ottawa 2013.

EMC news - It was a Vesak Day to remember at the Cambodian Buddhist Temple on Hazeldean Road in Stittsville last Saturday. It was not only officially proclaimed by city of Ottawa mayor Jim Watson but also it saw the grand opening of the new Ottawa Meditation Garden on the grounds of the Cambodian Buddhist Temple, an exhibition and judging of lanterns which in the Buddhist tradition symbolize wisdom and have the power to light the world through the right path, and the celebration of Vesak Festival 2013. Vesak Day is considered the holiest day of all Buddhist religious holidays, marking the birth, enlightenment and passing away of the Lord Buddha. Sometimes informally called “Buddha’s

Birthday,” it is a holy day observed traditionally by Buddhists throughout southeast Asia. City of Ottawa mayor Jim Watson was on hand last Saturday afternoon at the Hazeldean Road Temple to read a civic proclamation regarding Vesak Day, calling on all citizens to honour and celebrate the differences in the city’s pluralistic society of today. He also took part in the ribbon cutting marking the grand opening of the new Ottawa Meditation Garden at the Temple, one of several who took turns cutting through a portion of the orange ribbon to mark the occasion. Besides the mayor, others involved in this ribbon cutting ceremony include Her Excellency Chitranganee Wagiswara, the High Commissioner for Sri Lanka in Canada; Venerable Sam Rath Viriyadhammo, who is the lead monk at the Cambodian Buddhist Temple in Stittsville; city of

Erin Dippel follows in the steps of Pheidippides John Curry

EMC news - Seven year old Erin Dippel is Stittsville’s Pheidippides. Pheidippides is the heroic soldier of ancient Greece whose ran 40 kilometers to announce the Greek victory over Persia in the Battle of Marathon, after which he collapsed and died. His run inspired the modern marathon sporting event and it is immortalized by a statue of him carrying a torch along the Marathon Road in Greece.

Indeed, this iconic pose, now a symbol associated with the marathon, played a role in how Erin Dippel got to be one of the torch bearers in the first-ever Ottawa Marathon Torch Relay on Thursday, May 23, launching the Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend in Ottawa. To apply for a spot as a torch bearer in this Ottawa Marathon Torch Relay, Erin had to submit a photograph of herself in this iconic Pheidippides pose. Erin also included information that she has begun participating in Kids Triathlon events. But she is no

late comer to running. Her mother, Sue Fitzpatrick, confirms that Erin was part of the 5K run on Ottawa Race Weekend when she was just in a stroller. When Erin was just ten months old, she even walked across the finish line. And annually Erin has participated in the 2K family run on Ottawa Race Weekend. So you know that running has been and is part of her life. Erin had to be prepared to run the 1.1 kilometer section of the Torch Relay which she was assigned but since she runs 1.5 kilometers every couple of days as training for upcoming Kids Triathlons, no special preparations were needed. Indeed, Erin participated in the Torch Relay with a scrap on her leg that she had incurred the Sunday before while training for her triathlon participation this summer. And the ten minutes that she was allocated for her section of the Torch Relay also proved to be no problem, as Erin regularly runs her 1.5 triathlon training distances in six minutes. Erin, who is in grade two at Guardian Angels Catholic School in Stittsville, was accompanied on her Torch Relay run by her mother, Sue Fitzpatrick who also is a runner. The pair ran the whole way on their portion of the Torch Relay route which was from the corner of Richmond Road and Churchill Avenue east along Richmond Road and then Wellington Street to the corner of Clarendon Avenue and Wellington Street. Their pace was not that fast because they had to stay with the accompanying Torch Relay vehicle and police cruiser. At both the beginning and end of their section of the Torch Relay, they held the torch together. But for the rest of the run, Sue Fitzpatrick held the torch due to its size and weight. Even Sue had to keep switching hands in carrying the torch. Erin and Sue had their Torch Relay participation sandwiched between a

couple of Ottawa personalities. They accepted the torch from city of Ottawa councillor Katherine Hobbs and then they handed it off to radio personality Mark Sutcliffe. Nothing like being surrounded by celebrity. This Ottawa Marathon Torch Relay began at 7:45 a.m. on Thursday, May 23 in Marathon, a West Carleton community that happens to be 42 kilometers from Ottawa city hall, the exact distance of a marathon. And this Marathon in West Carleton is no recent development – it is even identified in Belden’s Atlas of Carleton County from 1879, complete with store, cemetery, church and, yes, tavern. The opening ceremony at Marathon for this Ottawa Marathon Torch Relay included the presence of Eleftherios Anghelopoulos, the Greek ambassador to Canada, and

EMC news - The Rotary Club of Ottawa – Stittsville has gained a new member but he is not a member new to Rotary. Douglas Martin, who was inducted as a member of the Stittsville Club at its meeting on Tuesday, May 21, has belonged to Rotary Clubs in both Edmonton and Colorado Springs in the past. Indeed, he was even honoured in 2004 as a Paul Harris Fellow, a high Rotary award presented to individuals, both Rotary members and nonRotary members, who meet high professional and personal standards. He also received a Rotary International

award in 1999. His fondest memory from his past Rotary experience was, as a member of the Colorado Springs Club, leading a team to the Amazon jungle of Peru to deliver a number of wheelchairs to the people there. His sponsor for membership in the Rotary Club of Ottawa – Stittsville, Theresa Qadri, in her remarks at the induction ceremony, described Douglas as a “positive, happy person” with a sense of humour but also a passion for life. District Governor Rene Melchers, who was in attendance at the induction ceremony, praised the Stittsville Club for gaining a wonderful new member who has Rotary experience.

Councillor Qadri’s Park Party and BBQ will be held on Saturday, June 15 from 12 noon to 4 p.m. at Village Square Park in Stittsville.

Vesak Day proclaimed by mayor at Buddhist Temple Continued from page 1

Such walking meditation is considered more difficult than sitting meditation. It involves being mindful of posture and the act of walking, being aware of lifting one foot and then the other while focused as well on your breathing. All this helps the mind concentrate and the body relax. The meditation garden includes the presence of seven statues of the Buddha, each one representing the Buddha as seen in a different culture – Cambodia, Thailand, Laos, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, Japan and Taiwan. They are all a little different in form or appearance (colours vary from gold to white to red, for instance) but there they all are, lined up and overlooking this new meditation garden and path. Part of last Saturday’s Vesak Festival at the Cambodian Buddhist Temple was an exhibition and competition of lanterns, with more than 15 displayed under a canopy tent that was adorned with miniature versions of the International Buddhist flag. This flag, designed in 1885, features six colours – blue for loving kindness and universal compassion; yellow for the middle path; red for wisdom and dignity; white for liberation; orange for the Buddha’s teachings; and a sixth colour mixing these other five colours, known as the essence of light. Lanterns have been used in the Buddhist

faith for up to 2000 years, mainly as a portable lighting device. Over the centuries, these lanterns have evolved to become more decorative and ornamental, as evidenced by those at this display at the Temple last Saturday. Those at this Vesak Festival 2013 at the Cambodian Buddhist Temple on Hazeldean Road in Stittsville also got to witness and enjoy a traditional Cambodian dance, presented by a costumed and masked expert dancer, Savan Yim. The 125 in attendance, including High Commissioner Wagiswara, mayor Watson and councillor Qadri, watched as the dancer performed to recorded music on a grassed area adjacent to the Temple’s parking lot and in front of a display which featured the International Buddhist flag and the flag of the United Nations. It was in 1999 that the United Nations first officially recognized Vesak Day, observing it at its headquarters and offices. The Vesak Festival at the Cambodian Temple in Stittsville also involved chanting by Buddhist monks from Cambodia, Sri Lanka and Thailand earlier in the day; the serving of Ceylon tea and cookies compliments of the High Commission for Sri Lanka following the afternoon’s official ceremonies and activities; and a pot luck vegetarian dinner in the evening following the lighting of the lanterns.

Vesak Day marks the birth, enlightenment and passing away of Lord Buddha, all of which took place on the same day, albeit in different years. As High Commissioner Her Excellency Chitranganee Wagiswara said in her remarks last Saturday, Vesak Day is one of the most important events on the Buddhist calendar around the world, coming at the time of the full moon in the month of May. She expressed pleasure at seeing Vesak Day being celebrated in Canada, so far from her home country of Sri Lanka. She thanked the Canadian government for fostering a climate where people are able to practice the religion of their choice in Canada. In Cambodia, Vesak Day is celebrated throughout the country, with people gathering at various Temples to spend the day in religious activities including a candle lit procession in the evening. The Sirin Foundation, founded by Visita Leelaratna, is dedicated to making a different in the lives of the less fortunate in Sri Lanka, especially through education. The Sirin Research Centre, which is associated with the Sirin Foundation, is an organization that works to foster knowledge and understanding between Canadians and the Sri Lankan people. It works to raise the level of public understanding with regard to diversity and multiculturalism and tries to reduce discrimination.

This is a free city-wide program that provides people with the opportunity to visit 123 different locations in the city, some of which, like the Goulbourn Museum’s artefact storage area, are not normally open to the public. This is the first time that the Goulbourn

Museum has participated in both days of the Doors Open Ottawa program. In previous years, the Goulbourn Museum has only participated on the Sunday. This year, though, the Goulbourn Museum will be taking part on both days, Saturday, June 1 and Sunday, June 2, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on both days. The Goulbourn Museum and History

Centre is housed in the 1872 Goulbourn Town Hall and adjacent 1961 Clkerk’s Building. Originally a wooden structure, the exterior of what is now the Museum was clad in cement block around 1930. The interior still has tongue and groove walls and ceiling. The Goulbourn Museum is located at 2064 Huntley Road at Stanley’s Corners, just south of Stittsville.

Road linkage may not happen John Curry


City of Ottawa mayor Jim Watson, left, presents a framed proclamation for Vesak Day 2013 in the city of Ottawa last Saturday, May 25 to Bhante Sam Rath Viriyadhammo, chief organizer for the Vesak Festival 2013 at the Cambodian Buddhist Temple on Hazeldean Road in Stittsville as city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri, centre, left, and Visita Leelaratna, centre, right, chair of the Surin Research Centre and the Surin Foundation.

EMC news - A road linkage between a proposed 581 unit subdivision and the existing Samuel Mann Avenue in Stittsville may not happen. The road linkage has been included in the proposed plan of subdivision but concerns raised by both the Stittsville Village Association (SVA) and area residents may see this linkage become a connection only for bikers, pedestrians and emergency vehicles. The objection to the road linkage is based on the fact that this would result in increased traffic on existing neighbourhood streets such as Basswood Avenue, Caribou Avenue and Orville Street that are not suited to such traffic flow. City of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri told the SVA executive at its meeting on Thursday, May 16 that he was working with city staff to determine if there really is a need for this proposed road linkage. Citing transportation study predictions that the road linkage would serve 13 vehicles in the peak morning period and 7 vehicles in the peak afternoon period, councillor Qadri said that he will be asking city staff if such a road linkage is really needed, given the minimal traffic volumes cited in the transportation study associated with the proposed subdivision. While admitting that all options regarding this linkage are still on the table, he said that he will talk with the city’s transportation experts and hear what they recommend. He said that he will then try to marry this recommendation up with the wishes of the community.

It has been suggested that the proposed road linkage become a biking/pedestrian pathway, perhaps with access possible for emergency vehicles. This linkage would provide a more direct route to the new subdivision for fire trucks from the fire hall on Stittsville Main Street via Carleton Cathcart Street than a route using Fernbank Road to get to the new subdivision. SVA president Phil Sweetnam said that it is important that connections between different areas of Stittsville be put in place, even if they are just biking and pedestrian linkages so that there is connections between these areas and residents have more direct access to things like bus service. A public meeting about this proposed new 581 unit subdivision on the north side of Fernbank Road immediately east of existing homes on John Sidney Crescent, Liard Street and Caribou Avenue in Stittsville has been scheduled for Thursday, June 13 at 7 p.m. at the hall at the Johnny Leroux Stittsville Community Arena in Stittsville. This proposed subdivision will include about 581 housing units made up of 285 single detached homes and 296 semi-detached units. The single family homes will be located mainly along the western edge of the site in closest proximity to the existing residential developments as well as in the northern portion of the site. There will have to be a zoning change for the site for the subdivision to proceed as it requires an urban residential zoning rather than the existing rural zoning. The property, though, was included with the Fernbank Community Design Plan as a site for residential development.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Dueling guitarsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; at Gaia Javaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s music evening John Curry

EMC news - â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dueling Banjos,â&#x20AC;? a 1955 song made famous in the 1972 film â&#x20AC;&#x153;Deliverance,â&#x20AC;? showed how musicians could feed off each other, with two together adding a unique dimension to a song. Well, last Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s music evening at the Gaia Java Coffee Company shop in Stittsville was at times like â&#x20AC;&#x153;dueling guitars,â&#x20AC;? as friends and fellow musicians Geoff Dignam and Lucas Haneman highlighted their individual vocals with periods of guitar jamming. They were not dueling, however, but rather complimenting each other with their guitar playing. And so it was not surprising that the pair began their performance at Gaia Java with Neil Youngâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cowgirl in the Sand,â&#x20AC;? a song written by Neil Young himself and featuring lengthy guitar jams, meant to showcase his guitar talents. And so while Geoff Dignam did the vocals on this song, both Geoff and Lucas added their guitar stylings to the piece. Neil Young would probably have been proud of this rendition of his song. When the pair did Marvin Gayeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1971 hit â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Going On,â&#x20AC;? Lucas did the vocals which were interspersed with periods of guitar playing by them both â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not a duel but a duet, as it were.

And so it went through the performance. There was â&#x20AC;&#x153;When Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m Sixty-Four,â&#x20AC;? the iconic Beatles tune from the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1967 album â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sgt. Pepperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lonely Hearts Club Bandâ&#x20AC;?; Al Greenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Stay Together,â&#x20AC;? the signature song for this American singer who is not only in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame but also made Rolling Stone magazineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s list of the 100 greatest musical artists of all time; and more, all featuring not

only vocals but also appropriate guitar work. Geoff Dignam, who grew up in Stittsville, and Lucas Haneman met when attending Concordia University in Montreal and both are now pursuing musical careers, living in Montreal. Geoff currently has a regular gig as a musician there but he really wants to do more song writing and right now finds it difficult to do both.


Geoff Dignam, left, and Lucas Haneman, right, are with their guitars at their performance at the Friday music evening at the Gaia Java Coffee Company shop in Stittsville last Friday, May 24.

Thank you!

He has a CD entitled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Songs of the Jean Talon Marketâ&#x20AC;? in the works which should be coming out soon. You just know that Lucas Haneman is something of a guitar fan when he tells you that he currently owns 14 guitars. He admits that this is too many but he still has them. Currently Lucas is involved with music full time, partly as a music teacher and partly as a performer. He has two CDâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s already out. Now 26 years old, he has been playing the guitar since the age of six. At the Gaia Java music evening last Friday, he had an array of foot pedals at his disposal, all for producing different sounds with his guitar playing. And while his seven or eight pedals arrayed at the base of his microphone stand may seem like a lot, he says that there could be up to 50 such pedals used by a performer. Geoff Dignam has performed previously at the Gaia Java shop in Stittsville but this was the first time that Geoff and Lucas performed together at the shop. These Friday music evenings at the Gaia Java Coffee Company shop at the Stittsville Shopping Centre (where Shoppers Drug Mart is located) on Stittsville Main Street are free for all who wish to attend. They begin at 7 p.m. each Friday, with a different performer or performers each week.

Depth of lots considered unique John Curry

EMC news - Stittsville Main Street has not been keeping pace with the growth taking place in Stittsville in terms of services offered in the view of city of Ottawa planner Charles Lanktree who is heading the Community Design Plan (CDP) now underway about the street. But the street does have some features that are unique and could foster development. One is the deep lots that generally are found along Stittsville Main Street. Such depth is not usually found along other similar streets in the city of Ottawa. This provides a lot of potential for development, Mr. Lanktree told those attending a meeting open to the public about the ongoing Stittsville Main Street CDP which was hosted by the Stittsville District Lions Club at the Lions Hall in Stittsville on Thursday, May 9. He noted that the deep lots will allow development not just along the street but in the rear area of such lots as well. Mr. Lanktree said that he is trying to bal-

ance the provincial policy statement and the city’s Official Plan direction urging more intensification in urban areas against the concern expressed by some Stittsville residents about the proposed building height limit of six storeys along Stittsville Main Street. He said that at present Stittsville Main Street is underdeveloped and more density and a greater mix of uses on the lots along the street are needed. He did admit, though, that this need to intensify development along the street needs to be done with a view to compatibility with existing and adjacent development. Mr. Lanktree said that the city’s Official Plan allows that intensification with buildings up to six storeys in height is permitted along Traditional Main Streets of which Stittsville Main Street is designated as one. This means that such intensification has to be allowed to happen although he admitted that there can be some flexibility in this so that a street does not become a “canyon” of six storey buildings. He said that the depth of a lot and the width of the street running past the lot should be considered when determining the height of a building allowed on any particu-

Called a “Multi-Faceted Eden that must be seen to be believed,” Jo-Anne Ilkiw’s garden features gardens, ponds, waterfalls and even a race track. It must be seen to be truly appreciated, as those on the Stittsville-Goulbourn Horticultural Society’s garden tour two years ago discovered. And now you can discover it as well while also supporting the work of the haemotology and transplant medicine division of the Ottawa Hospital. All it takes is a $100 donation or more to the Ross Cathcart Legacy Endowment Fund of the Ottawa Hospital Foundation and you will be able to enjoy this garden party fundraiser on Sunday, June 16 running from 12 noon to 3 p.m. A rain date of Sunday, June 23 has been set just in case. A tax receipt for the full amount of the donation will be provided by the Ottawa Hospital Foundation. For tickets (now on sale) and more details, please go to . Besides being able to enjoy this fantastic garden oasis, you will also be entertained with live music by Duo d’Amore. Refreshments and a light lunch will be served. And even garden photos will be available for purchase. The Ross Cathcart Legacy Endowment Fund of the Ottawa Hospital Foundation which supports blood and marrow transplant medicine is in memory of the late Ross Cathcart, son of the Helen and the late Percy Cathcart of Goulbourn. Ross was the husband of Jo-Anne Ilkiw. Corporate sponsors for this garden party fundraiser include Duo d’Amore, Almonte Landscape Services, Carleton Environmental Services, Stittsville Sobeys and Coldwell Banker First Ottawa Realty sales representative Theresa Qadri.

lar lot. Mr. Lanktree said that there needs to be a balance found between the concerns of residents about development along Stittsville Main Street and the objectives of the city’s Official Plan and the province’s policy statement regarding intensification. “I have to find a balance in all of that,” he said, adding that everyone involved in the discussion is going to have to compromise their views to some extent in this matter. City of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri said at the meeting that his view is that a so-called Traditional Main Street in Stittsville is different than a street bearing this same Traditional Main Street designation in Westboro or downtown Ottawa. David Jenkins, a director with the Stittsville Village Association who handles its planning portfolio, noted that of the 17 Traditional Main Streets identified in the city’s Official Plan, Stittsville Main Street is the only one located outside the greenbelt, giving it a uniqueness from the other 16. He said that everyone wants to see Stittsville Main Street develop but similarly no one wants to be overwhelmed with inappropriate development along the street.

We all have won


he city recently wrapped up another successful Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend, an event that attracts more than 40,000 participants, not to mention the hordes of onlookers who filled the streets of downtown on May 24 and 25. The statistics alone are staggering. Ottawa Race Weekend is the biggest multi-distance race event in Canada and is one of only two International Association of Athletics Federations sanctioned events in the country. Over the course of a weekend, approximately $28.7 million is pumped into the Ottawa-Gatineau economy -- not exactly chump change. Hotels book around 9,000 homes in the capital region. Race organizers are responsible for collecting 427,000 discarded drinking cups and handing out roughly 25,000 sponges to sweaty participants. It takes a volunteer work force of 2,000 people to help organize and run the races, including those who distribute water, run the information booth, and provide emergency services. Doctors, nurses, paramedics and other medical professionals volunteer their time, bringing enough equipment to set up a small hospital to service the event. When you think about it, over the course of the

weekend Ottawa absorbs the population of several small cities -- and those people require additional city services, such as police, fire services and doctors. Ottawa Race Weekend is a hallmark event that all the citizens can take pride in, a series of races with international repute, drawing some of the best athletes across the world. How fitting that the event was kicked off with a marathon torch relay run from the village of Marathon in West Carleton to city hall - a 42-kilometre trek that matches the length of a marathon run. The torch run was suggested by Greeceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ambassador to Canada, and the mayor of Marathon, Greece, travelled to Ottawa with two ceremonial torches for the relay run, giving the race weekend a little international polish. We can also take pride in the tremendous volunteer effort generated by the event. Every year, runners participating in race weekend have raised more than $1 million, money that supports 25 charities affiliated with Ottawa Race Weekend. Ottawa Race Weekend celebrates what is best in our city and its citizens. Pheidippides, a Greek soldier who inspired the concept of a marathon after he ran 40 kilometres in 490 BC to report the victory of Athens over Persia before falling over dead, said it best: â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have won.â&#x20AC;?


Experts all thumbs when it comes to the keyboard


omeone is always trying to invent a better mousetrap, they used to say. They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say it so much any more, now that I think of it. This could mean that the better mousetrap has already been invented, although I doubt it, to judge by the mice. The better mousetrap, if it is to be invented in this day and age, will probably involve lasers and the use of social media, because every new invention does. Perhaps a mouse could be lured to his doom by invitations on MouseBook, there to be confronted by a laser launched by a drone triggered by someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cellphone. Something you probably hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t thought about: the invitation on MouseBook would be sent by someone typing on his or her thumbs. Which brings us, not very neatly, to todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s topic. Every few years someone tries to reinvent the typewriter keyboard, which is what computer keyboards still have. The time has come again. This time itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s researchers at a university in Scotland who say, according to news article, that the traditional keyboard has a â&#x20AC;&#x153;suboptimal text entry interface.â&#x20AC;? This is mad scientist-speak for â&#x20AC;&#x153;you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t type very well on it.â&#x20AC;? Except, of course, that you can. Millions, maybe billions, of people

Funny Town over the years have used the traditional keyboard and found it quite optimal enough, once they figured it out. They way they figured it out was by practicing it, after learning which fingers go on which keys. There were typing classes in school. The keyboard we all use is known as the QWERTY system, after the arrangement of the top six letter keys for the left hand. QWERTY developed after it was discovered that the seemingly logical system of placing the keys in alphabetical order did not work well. If people typed too quickly the keys jammed up. Placing the most-used letters apart worked better. For years, mad scientists have been trying to improve on it, arguing, not without logic, that QWERTY is inefficient. But, of course, Published weekly by:

QWERTY is more efficient than other systems because people have learned how to use it. Watch a fast QWERTY typist work and try to imagine anything going faster. Some systems are inefficient but impossible to replace. How inefficient is, say, the French language, with all those genders? How inefficient is the English language, with all of those words that sound the same and are spelled differently? And how likely are we, the English- and French-speakers, to sacrifice our languages to efficiency? Mad scientists who study baseball say that the way baseball players throw in an overhand motion is unnatural. The natural way is to throw a kind of combination of underhand and sidearm. You can see how much effect this has had on baseball players. Sometimes we do things just because thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the way we do things. And it works for us. As it turns out, this latest attempt to eradicate QWERTY coincides roughly with the 20th anniversary of text messaging. The latest knock against QWERTY is that it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work well for people who type with their thumbs. The latest solution is to put the vowels on one side of the keyboard and the consonants on the other. Now, since there are 21 consonants and only five vowels, that would make it necessary

to change some consonants into vowels for balanceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sake. In effect, the inventors of the new system, called KALQ, have done that, moving some consonants over to where the vowels are (and leaving the Y with the consonants, for some reason). The over-all effect, seen in views of the new keyboard, seems just as random as QWERTY but we are assured it is more efficient. The philosophical question so far remains unasked: Is it in the best interests of humanity to make it easier for people to type with their thumbs? Next thing you know, everyone will be throwing sidearm.

New kitchen coming at Saunders Farm Table.â&#x20AC;? Yes, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it will be handling, using and promoting local farm products wherever possible. As a long standing member of Savour Ottawa and an advocate in direct farm marketing, Saunders Farm has been working with about ten local farm operations for some time now in featuring local food and farmers as well as its own catering garden in its food offerings. With this new 2,000 square foot kitchen with its walk-in

freezers and coolers, this aspect of the Farmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s operation is going to take on a new prominence and status. Mark Saunders, Director of Fun at Saunders Farm, notes that Saunders Farm is currently pretty well known for its entertainment attractions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to be just as well known for food,â&#x20AC;? he says, explaining that with this new kitchen, the Farm will be able to offer visitors more variety and more healthy options in the

food provided at the Farm, including in-season fruits and vegetables, specialized meat such as elk from a Kanata area farm and more. He notes that there is a lot of great food grown in the local area which he hopes to provide at Saunders Farm. He says that having this new kitchen will allow the Farm to take the customer experience there to a whole new level, acknowledging that food is very much a part of the enter-


tainment business. The new kitchen has been designed to meet the demand not only of the summertime crowds at Saunders Farm but also the larger demands during Haunting Season in October. It will be the major food hub in October, although there will still be a few other food outlets on the grounds, just not as many as in the past. In addition, the new kitchen will help the Farm when it hosts major corporate and wedding events, helping the Farm grow this portion of its business. This new kitchen, which should be up and running by the end of June with all construction finished and all of its equipment installed, will have service windows as well as indoor ordering. Those ordering inside will have a full view of the open area kitchen, a feature which Mark says will â&#x20AC;&#x153;bring people close to the food.â&#x20AC;? This new kitchen is attached to the Farmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pavilion building where people will be able to go to eat the food that they get at the kitchen. The facility is also adjacent to the Farmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stage area so that the food can also be taken there and enjoyed if desired. The new kitchen has been built with a view to a future building extension.

Mark Saunders, Director of Fun at Saunders Farm at Munster, stands in front of the new state-of-the-art commercial kitchen facility which is now under construction and should be in operation by the end of June.

Saunders Farm in Munster Continued from page 9

This will provide space for educational courses and sessions about locally grown food and will also house washroom facilities. This kitchen has been four years in the planning stages and is the largest single expenditure that the Farm has made in terms of one project or facility. But that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean that the Farm is not adding other features and attractions this year as well. Saunders Farm this summer is introducing an Adventure Passport, a scavenger hunt-type activity that will encourage a visitor to visit ten different areas around the Farm. A visitor who accumulates all ten stamps on the passport will get a prize. Saunders Farm will also be offering an increased four weeks of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Farm Campâ&#x20AC;? this summer due to the demand for the program. The Farm Camp program will now be available to youngsters aged 5 to 12 years old. There is also a leadership camp for those aged 13 and 14 years old. Mark Saunders is not revealing specifics yet but he says that the Farm has some interesting new attractions and features coming for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Haunting Season in October. Stay tuned. This coming weekend, Saturday, June 1 and Sunday, June 2, which initiates the 2013 summer season at Saunders Farm, there will be a Farm

Shop Yard Sale with savings of up to 70 percent offered on home and garden items in the Farm Shop at Saunders Farm. And watch for a Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Health Safety and Environmental Awareness Day that will be happening at Saunders Farm on Saturday, June 29, hosted by Moore Chiropractic of Stittsville. Saunders Farm at Munster will be open on Saturdays and Sundays through the month of June, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on each Saturday and Sunday. Starting on Saturday, June 29 and continuing through Monday, Sept. 2, which is Labour Day, Saunders Farm will be open daily except for Mondays. All of the family fun attractions for which Saunders Farm has become known will be available for this summer season including Jumping Pillows, ten mazes and giant puzzles, a water splash pad, hayride tours of the Farmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s forest and field crops, the pedal cart race track, the gem mine, puppet shows and lots of green space. Now in its 37th year of operation since being started as a strawberry farm in 1976 by Anne and Bill Saunders and their four then-young children, Saunders Farm has developed into a family friendly farm adventure and entertainment destination. Each year Saunders Farm welcomes thousands of visitors to the 100 acre farm. The Saunders Farm website can be found at

EMC news - Skateboarding is a lot of fun. So too is making a skateboard. That’s what many students at the Frederick Banting Alternate School Program in Stittsville have been discovering as they have had the opportunity to make a skateboard and personalize it with their own artwork. Almost 50 students took up the offer to be involved in this project, with all of the skateboards to be on display at an art show at the school this Thursday, May 30 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Members of the public are most welcome to drop into the school on Stittsville Main Street and see for themselves these student-made

skateboards, each with unique artwork. This all came about when student teacher Dustin Wenzel arrived for his practice teaching stay at the school. Although from Ottawa, he is taking his teaching course in Toronto where he was involved in a similar project at an alternate school in Toronto. There, he witnessed not only the success of the project but he learned where the pre-cut maple veneer strips of wood could be obtained and how the skateboards were made and finished. He brought the idea with him to Frederick Banting where it was embraced by the staff including teacher Mary Williamson, who teaches art, and the project was started, open to any student who wanted to participate.

New video projection system at St. Thomas Pat McNally

Special to the News


Some of those at the Frederick Banting Alternate School Program in Stittsville who are taking part in the skateboard-making project are, at the front, from left, student teacher Dustin Wenzel and students Quintan Allen and Joey York; and, back row, standing, from left, Brian Carruthers, staff member Jeff Kerswill, Ryan Leclair, Ashley Fergusson, Becky Sanson, Heather Marrs, James Armstrong and teacher Mary Williamson.

Skateboard art at Frederick Banting Continued from page 16

The project not only exposes the students to the development of rudimentary woodworking skills, especially since the edges of the skateboard under construction have to be sanded down and smoothed, but also provides the students with an introduction to design and art work. “Instead of a canvas, they use a skateboard,” Mr. Wenzel explains. Students were encouraged to use the whole surface of the skateboard for their artwork and to personalize the artwork as

Rural Themed Vendors Wanted Register Now

much as possible. “They’re really creative,” Mr. Wenzel says about how the students have incorporated their artwork on their skateboards. Who knows but graphic design or even entrepreneurship making skateboards may be in the future for some of these students, both fostered by involvement in this project. In addition, making the skateboards encouraged collaborative learning, as the students worked together in glueing the veneer strips together to make the boards and also helped each other in the various stages of preparing the skateboard.

The students also developed a sense of pride because they actually made and painted the skateboard themselves. Each student involved in the project gets to keep the finished skateboard which only needs wheels to be added later to make it fully functional. Frederick Banting teacher Mary Williamson says that she has never seen students so engaged in a project as with this one making and painting skateboards. She praises the school administration and staff for being so supportive of the project, providing the funding for the necessary supplies.

BIA Lambs Down Park Festival in Carleton Place

EMC news - St. Thomas Anglican Church in Stittsville has inaugurated a new video projection system in its worship space. A large screen has been positioned at the front of the church so that everyone in attendance can see and take part in the progression of the songs and liturgy throughout the service. This new system was introduced, somewhat appropriately, on Pentecost Sunday which was Sunday, May 19. Pentecost is regarded as the birthday of the church of today, with the Holy Spirit descending on the apostles and giving them the vigour and enthusiasm to spread the gospel of the Lord. Now, that gospel is being presented at St. Thomas with the assistance of modern technology in the form of this new video projection system. The use of a combination of prayer and hymn books has long been a mainstay in workshop services at St. Thomas Anglican Church, as with many other churches. This new video projection system in the worship space at the church now provides the opportunity for the congregation to experience the worship service in a “handsfree” environment – no more reliance on prayer and hymn books as everything will be displayed on the screen. This new video projection system has also been incorporated into the church’s existing audio setup. This will allow for the showing of videos with complete sound enhancement. Worship services are held at St. Thomas Anglican Church every Sunday at both 8:30 a.m. and at 10:30 a.m. St. Thomas Anglican Church is located at the corner of Stittsville Main Street and Carleton Cathcart Street in Stittsville. The church has a presence on the web and on Facebook at

Presidential Citation Grand opening fun at Royal Bank to Stittsville Rotary Special to the News

Special to the News

EMC news - The Rotary Club of Ottawa – Stittsville has been honoured for its work over the past year. Rotary District Governor Rene Melchers presented the Stittsville Club with a Rotary International Presidential Citation for being one of only 20 clubs out of 69 Rotary Clubs in District 7040 to achieve or exceed the objectives set out by Rotary International for the year as captured in the motto “Peace through Service.” The prestigious Presidential Citation includes a certificate as well as a badge that can be affixed to a Rotary Club’s banner.

EMC news - Fun at a bank? You betcha when it’s the new RBC Royal Bank branch at the Walmart shopping area at the corner of Fernbank Road and Terry Fox Drive and it’s grand opening time there! It’s all happening on Saturday, June 8 from noon to 3 p.m. when everyone is invited to drop by and not only enjoy refreshments and a stroll through the new branch but

also lots of fun. The fun is geared to the whole family so there will be not only face painting but also a live pop band and the presence of The Bear 106.9 limo. But this is not all. Besides the grand opening ribbon cutting, there will be a flash mob by a local dance studio, a food truck and presentation of a donation to the Kanata Food Cupboard. There also will be draws for prizes.

So, there’s lot of fun in store at this new RBC Royal Bank branch’s grand opening on Saturday, June 8. The branch opened on Monday, March 11 but delayed its official grand opening until Saturday, June 8 when more fun activities could be arranged and take place. The RBC Royal Bank at the Walmart shopping area at the corner of Fernbank Road and Terry Fox Drive can be contacted at 613-271-4077.

On P.A. Day EMC news - Goulbourn’s pioneering military history will be front and centre at an upcoming P.A. Day program at the Goulbourn Museum. That’s when the youngsters involved, aged 7 to 11, will learn about a soldier’s life in the early 1800’s. Many of Goulbourn’s earliest settlers were former soldiers who fought in the War of 1812. Youngsters enrolled in this half-day “Shillings, Shakos & Shenanigans” program will learn that someone joining the military in the early 1800’s had to have two teeth that lined up (better for tearing open ammunition packets) as well as an index finger (better for firing a musket). If you had these two physical attributes, then your chances at joining the military were excellent. In this P.A. Day program on Friday, June 7 from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Goulbourn Museum, youngsters will spend a fun afternoon learning about what it was like to be a soldier in the 1800’s. Games and activities will be geared to this theme including taking an oath, making a shako hat which was worn by soldiers back then and enjoying a camp cookout. The only non-historical aspect of this P.A. Day program is that it will be open to both boys and girls. The early 1800’s had only an all-male military, although there are situations where females like Richmond settler Maria Hill did disguise themselves as soldiers on occasion. Youngsters aged 7 to 11 are now being “recruited” for this P.A. Day program. Cost of registration is $25 per child but this includes a snack. To register a child, call the Goulbourn Museum at 613-831-2393 or email . The Goulbourn Museum is located at 2064 Huntley Road at Stanley’s Corners, just south of Stittsville. For more information, visit the Museum’s website at or phone the Museum at 613-831-2393.

Flewellyn Road Closure As part of their Ottawa Reinforcement Project, Enbridge will be installing a new gas main along Flewellyn Road, between Eagleson Road and Conley Road. This project will be done in phases which will result in road closures of certain portions of Flewellyn Road. The first phase will result in the closure of Flewellyn Road, from Shea Road to Eagleson Road, from June 3 until June 21. Detours will be in place.

Councillor for Hire In the month of May, I happened to take part in two different Councillor for Hire jobs. The first was at Greenlife Nursery and the second was at Magpie Hill Alpacas. Sometimes I receive requests for specific dates, which is why I did two in May whereas August will likely have me unemployed as a Councillor for Hire.

Greenlife Nursery On May 14, I had the opportunity to get my hands a little dirty and work with Greenlife Nursery. While Greenlife isn’t actually in RideauGoulbourn (it’s on Manotick Station Road), its owner, Sarah Johnston, lives in Manotick and they do work in Manotick and across the entire city. Greenlife is a wholesale nursery that serves the landscaping industry with its vast selection of plants, shrubs and trees. Greenlife also specializes in garden installation and lawn maintenance. My day at Greenlife Nursery consisted of a quick tour of the nursery and an orientation where I got a chance to meet the sales, office and nursery staff. It was then off to Geneva Street in Westboro where I helped with a beautiful garden installation at a newly built home. It was a good chance to work with the Greenlife landscape crew and learn more about what goes into an installation. After lunch with the team, I accompanied Sarah to two upcoming project sites on our way back to the nursery. I initially met Sarah in late April of 2011 after it was announced that the City was imposing a water ban in Barrhaven, Manotick and Riverside South. Thankfully, we made it through that time period quicker than expected. Greenlife has been able to grow their business and it was a pleasure to see that first hand. Many thanks to Sarah and her team at Greenlife for inviting me to spend a day as an employee at this exciting local business. For more information about Greenlife Nursery, please visit

Magpie Hill Alpacas On the morning of Saturday, May 25, I found myself up bright and early and ready to help shear alpacas at Magpie Hill. This wasn’t exactly my typical Saturday morning but it was a fun experience and great to spend the morning at this local farm on Third Line Road. Owners Aaron & Sarah have amassed a herd of more than 30 alpacas since starting their farm five years ago. They sell a variety of products with alpaca fleece including duvets, socks, hats, scarves, mitts, yarn and even teddy bears. Magpie Hill products are often available at the North Gower Farmers Market and the new market at Creekside Gardens in Richmond.

I want to thank Aaron and Sarah for letting me take part in this process and spending the morning at their farm. You can find out more about Magpie Hill by visiting Also, look for them on the North Gower Discovery Tour in September.

Doors Open Ottawa Doors Open Ottawa is another event taking place this weekend at various locations across the City. In Rideau-Goulbourn, everyone is welcome to come and visit the Rideau Archives in North Gower; Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind, St. James Anglican Church, Dickinson House & Watson’s Mill in Manotick; and the Goulbourn Museum on Huntley Road. There are well over 100 buildings worth visiting during Doors Open Ottawa weekend, including Royal Canadian Mint, Rideau Hall, Diefenbunker, and the Embassy of Algeria - one of the most beautiful buildings in Ottawa. Find out more at DoorsOpen.

My experience was all about shearing the alpacas and packing up the fleece for processing in these products. I was at the farm long enough to take part in shearing four alpacas and I can tell you that it was a unique experience to hold an alpaca’s head for over thirty minutes while it was essentially shaved bald. The incredible thing is that, with proper shearing, the fleece comes off in one whole piece and is amazingly soft and warm. I think an owning an alpaca blanket is likely somewhere in my near future. Shearing a herd of 30 alpacas takes approximately four days and requires a volunteer force of around 10 or so individuals.



EMC news - There’s summer camps held by the city of Ottawa at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex and in the Stittsville area. But you may not know just what is being offered or perhaps you want to know more about it to make sure that the camp is right for your son or daughter. Well, you should consider attending a summer camp open house and information session which is being held at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex (GRC) on Shea Road this Saturday, June 1 from 10 a.m. to 12 noon. At this summer camp open house, you will be able to learn all about the camps that are happening at the GRC and in the Stittsville area this summer. There are camps like Just In-Credible Kids, Preschool and Leadership Camps. There are also youth programs in the area. At this summer camp open house, you will be able to meet with camp staff. You will also be able to tour the GRC and see where the summer camp programs will be happening. Indeed, you even will be able to try out some of the activities. Everyone with an interest in the city’s summer camp programs at the GRC and in the Stittsville area is invited to attend this open house.


EMC news - Rain barrels are still available from the Stittsville Village Association (SVA). The SVA ordered additional barrels this year so that there are still some available which are now being stored and displayed at Stittsville Sobeys. They are available for purchase there at the price of $55 per barrel, the same price as prevailed last year and this year. Most of them are black in colour but the price can’t be beaten – a low $55. The SVA receives $10 of this $55 selling price which the SVA then uses for its expenses. The SVA organizes such community events as Art and Authors in the Park, Canada Day celebrations, Villagefest and the Christmas Parade of Lights. Longer sections of overflow hose than the four feet that normally

comes with the rain barrel are available as well. For more information about additional overflow hose, contact SVA immediate past president Marilyn Jenkins at 613-836-5075 or visit Stittsville Sobeys. Rain barrels provide a free source of water that is ideal for vegetables and plants since it does not contain fluoride and chlorine which are added to many municipal water systems. Collecting rain water also decreases pressure and the chance of overflow with urban storm sewer systems during heavy rains. Rain barrels also provide homeowners with a source of water for washing vehicles when summertime water-use restrictions may be in force in a municipality. The United Nations has designated March 22 as World Water Day to highlight the importance of fresh water. Today, over one billion people in the world lack access to clean water. R0011958500

Blood donor clinic Downsizing to be discussed Special to the News

EMC news – A community blood donor clinic hosted by Canadian Blood Services is being held on Wednesday, June 5 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the gymnasium at Holy Spirit Catholic Church on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville. To book an appointment to give blood at this clinic, visit or call 1-888-2DONATE (1-888236-6283). All blood donations at community blood donor clinics held by Canadian Blood Services are 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 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-forprofit charitable organization that manages the blood supply in all provinces and territories in Canada except for Quebec. A separate organization, Hema-Quebec, 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.

The Community Mental Health Form is open to everyone. Please feel free to share this information with anyone who you think might be interested in attending.

They also got to escape the heat with outdoor water games and watermelon for snacks. Last year the week-long camp ended with a fun performance for parents and friends with songs and a fun bible story drama. Well, Camp Awesome is back at St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s United Church in Richmond for another year this summer â&#x20AC;&#x201C; its third year at St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s.

Funds raised at the recent Mom2Mom Sale held by the Nursery School are used to pay for this community event. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event takes on a particular signiďŹ cance because right now, the Nursery School is facing low registration numbers for the fall. This means that the Nursery School may lose one of its two long-serving teachers. So there is a need to boost enrolment for the fall. This community event lends itself as a perfect opportunity for families who may be thinking of a Nursery School experience for their child to drop by, have an ice cream, view a reptile or two (at least the kids will love this), tour the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s facilities and chat with some existing Nursery School families about their view of the Nursery School and its beneďŹ ts. ing hosted by the Western Ottawa Communtiy Resource Centre and its community partners. The goal is to work towards ensuring the sustainability, vibrancy and social well being of the community and its families in view of the growth and changes that are taking place in the community.

Having fun performing in gymnaestrada John Curry

EMC news - Five year old Ashley Keefer liked swinging the hoop in her routine. Six year old Mayanne Chiponski liked the music accompa-

nying her routine. They were but two of the young rhythmic gymnasts who took part in the Kanata Rhythmic Gymnastics Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spring gymnaestrada 2013. But whether it was Ashley or Mayanne or any one of the rhythmic



gymnasts who participated in one of more than 30 routines presented at the event last Friday evening at the Earl of March High School theatre in Kanata, you knew one thing â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they were having fun â&#x20AC;&#x201C; their smiles and their infectious energy told you that.

Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because a gymnaestrada is just a big word for what really is a recital â&#x20AC;&#x201C; an opportunity for family and friends to see these young rhythmic gymnasts representing all of the classes and levels in the Kanata Rhythmic Gymnastics Club perform on stage. Rhythmic gymnastics combines the grace of ballet and dance with gymnastic movements that require flexibility. So you know that it is eyecatching to watch. But rhythmic gymnastics also sees the participants perform with associated apparatus like hoops, ropes, ribbons or balls, all of which are used in competitive settings as well as these less formal gymnaestradas. But a gymnaestrada like last Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is not restricted to these items that can be found in competitive surroundings. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why you saw flowers like the giant ones used by the five-member group coached by Kaitllyn FarrellRose that meets every Wednesday evening at St. Stephen School in Stittsville. Or there were teddy bears or umbrellas or fans used in other routines â&#x20AC;&#x201C; you just never knew what you would see from routine to routine â&#x20AC;&#x201C; thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing â&#x20AC;&#x153;routineâ&#x20AC;? about these routines. And, of course, all of the routines are performed to music. And everyone enjoys hearing that! This springâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gymnaestrada marked the first time that those from the recreational classes which the Kanata Rhythmic Gymnastics Club holds at St. Stephen School in Stittsville participated in the event. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because these classes just began in the past year and this was the first real opportunity for these youngsters to display their developing rhythmic gymnastic skills. There were three groups from the St. Stephen location who performed

in the gymnaestrada â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Wednesday 7 p.m.-8 p.m. class coached by Kaitllyn Farrell-Rose who performed the flower routine, the only one in the event; the Monday 6 p.m.-7 p.m. class coached by Breanna Rich who performed a hoop routine, using the white hoops in sharp contrast to their red recreational class outfits; and the Monday 7 p.m.-8 p.m. class coached by Lauren Tierney who performed a rope routine. Yes, the St. Stephen location was well represented in this, its inaugural appearance in a spring gymnaestrada. The Kanata Rhythmic Gymnastics Club holds classes at various locations throughout the Kanata/Stittsville area. While St. Stephen School is the only location in Stittsville, other locations in Kanata include the Old Town Hall, St. Gabriel School, Glen Cairn and Bridlewood. The gymnaestrada not only included routines from all of the recreational classes but also saw performances from some of the Kanata Rhythmic Gymnastics Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s advanced training gymnasts including some who compete at the provincial level. Indeed, Lucinda Nowell, whose ribbon routine wound up the gymnaestradaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s program, recently placed fourth in a provincial competition, so she is one of the most outstanding in the province. A special treat at the gymnaestrada was a ball routine performed by some of the Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coaches. The Kanata Rhythmic Gymnastics Club was founded in 1975 by Dasa Lelli who still directs the Club. The Club offers a recreational program for girls age four and older in which the girls are introduced to the technique and movements of rhythmic gymnastics and its apparatus which includes hoops, ropes, ribbons, balls and clubs.

EMC news - Former Major League pitcher Michael Kusiewicz learned many valuable life skills playing baseball. As a high school student, the smallest noise, even the sound of a pencil dropping, was enough to distract him. But he discovered how to focus his mind pitching at the ball diamond, where his attention narrowed to his catcherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s glove at home plate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The number one biggest inďŹ&#x201A;uence in my life is sports,â&#x20AC;? said Kusiewicz, who went on to become the ďŹ rst Ottawaborn player drafted by a Major League Baseball team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I learned on the baseball ďŹ eld how to focus.â&#x20AC;? Kusiewicz and Team Canada fencer John Wright shared some of the life lessons they learned participating in sports with more than 260 Bridlewood elementary school students at Deevy Pines Park in Kanata during True Sport Play Day on Friday, May 17. The sixth-annual event, organized by the Bridlewood Community Association, teaches children the values of fairness, excellence, inclusion and fun. Students from Roch Car-

Mike Kusiewicz rier, Bridlewood Community, St. Anne Catholic, St. James Catholic, W. O. Mitchell and Ă&#x2030;lisabeth-Bruyère French Catholic elementary schools took part in the two-hour event. True Sport is a national movement to provide a safe, welcoming and rewarding experience in sport. Aside from enjoying fun on the ďŹ eld, students were treated to presentations by Kusiewicz and Wright, two local, successful athletes. Kusiewicz said another lesson he learned on the baseball diamond was to never give up. He played for the East Ne-

In 1994, he was drafted in the eighth round by the Colorado Rockies, and during his pro-career had stints playing in the Toronto Blue Jays, Boston Red Sox, Milwaukee Brewers and Oakland Athleticsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; minor league systems. In 1998, the year he was named the Rockiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Minor League Player of the Year, Kusiewicz tore his shoulder and underwent surgery. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It felt like someone was sticking a knife into my shoulder,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quit.â&#x20AC;? He went on to play 10 more years, including at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, Greece, where Team Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s baseball team ďŹ nished fourth. He retired in 2008. Now, the 36-year-old Richmond resident teaches at St. Nicholas Adult High School, in Ottawa, after spending three years as a teacher at Sacred Heart Catholic High School in Stittsville. Kusiewicz encouraged the kids to follow their dreams. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Someone next to you could be an Olympian or a famous musician,â&#x20AC;? he told the students.

Veterans visit Richmond Legion Special to the News

EMC news - Each year the Richmond Legion opens its doors and hospitality to veterans from the Perley and Rideau Veterans Health Centre (Perley Rideau) in Ottawa. This happened again this year on Tuesday, May 14 when veterans from the Perley Rideau visited the Legion

Hall. They enjoyed a BBQ and some entertainment. The Richmond Legion gave a goody bag to each one as they were leaving. The Perley Rideau not-forprofit long term care health centre is one of the largest such centres in Ontario with 250 veteran residents and 200 community residents, served

by 700 staff and 400 volunteers. The Perley Rideau traces its history back to 1897 when the Perley family property on Wellington Street in Ottawa was turned over for the care of persons who needed shelter and treatment over an extended period. This initial facility was replaced by a new facility on Aylmer Avenue in Ottawa after 1912. by 1941, the Perleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capacity had grown to 95 beds and in the 1950â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, it was further expanded to 215 beds. The Perley was also taking on added responsibilities for physiotherapy and orthopaedic rehabilitation. The Rideau Veterans Homes was built by the federal government as a temporary residence for the rehabilitation of service personnel returning from the Second World War. It gradually grew into a 139 bed home for the aged. In 1995, a new combined 450 bed Perley Hospital and Rideau Veterans Home opened. In 1997, the Ontario Ministry of Health designated the new facility as a long term JOHN BRUMMELL/METROLAND care home.

Writing my own happy ending with CHEOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s help

By Vienna Arbic with Isabelle Mailloux Pulkinghorn

My name is Vienna and I am nine years old. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in grade three, play defense on my hockey team, and enjoy doing crafts and writing stories. I love spending time with my parents Sherry and Richard Arbic, and my friends. And I have cancer. My â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;realâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; life had to be put on hold while the doctors at CHEO help me get rid of cancer. Mine is called Germ cell tumor, a very rare form of brain cancer - and I want it to go away. If this were a story I came up with, there wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be a port-a-cath, operations and chemotherapy

involved. I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need lumbar punctures and I could be home with my parents and my dogs instead of in the hospital. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be playing hockey and graduating grade three with everyone in my class. If this were a story I made up, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be funny like the Robert Munsch books that I love so much. But cancer is serious.

they knew something was wrong with me, had it not been for the concussion itself and for the team of CHEO neurologists, endocrinologists and oncologists who care for me, my story could have had a sad ending.

One day at hockey practice I hurt my head and ended up with a concussion. I had all the classic symptoms, and even after the prescribed rest period I was not getting better. I was sleeping 18 hours a day, falling asleep at school and again later in the afternoon. I had severe headaches that even the pain medicine would not relieve. I had no short-term memory and my parents say I just wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t myself.

But now, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hope.

Chemotherapy is not fun - it actually makes me very sick. I lost my hair and I look very different because of the cortisone, but it is helping me get better. It is shrinking the size of my tumor, and that is great news! Once the last cycle of chemotherapy          reduce the tumor even more and hopefully make it So my parents took me to CHEO. An go away forever. I hope weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re done by the end of endocrinologist ordered a CT scan and it detected the summer so I can start my hockey season and go a tumor in the center of my brain that was pressing back to school. Mom and dad have already found against my thyroid, pituitary and hypothalamus special hockey equipment that will protect my port             (where the doctors inject the medications). Vassilyadi, a CHEO neurosurgeon, installed a             I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait to get back to my real life. Until then, I will take my medicine, continue chemo and rest so pressure; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when I started to feel much better.         The oncologists told us that Germ cell tumors in the brain are very rare but the good news is that they Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funny because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always wanted to become usually respond well to radiation; although some do a doctor when I grow up. Now, as mom says, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m need a mix of radiation, chemotherapy and surgery. getting an insiderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s view and that will help make me be a great doctor someday. I also want to keep In my case, we quickly started with chemotherapy. writing, so maybe Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll become a doctor-writer. But Had it not been for my parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; persistence to one thing is certain: my stories will always have push for physicians to investigate further because happy endings. Just like this one will.

EMC news - You will be able to hear the Big Soul Project gospel choir and band in concert this Saturday, June 1 at 7 p.m. at St. Paul’s Anglican Church on Young Road just north of Hazeldean Road in Kanata. It’s all a fundraising effort for the Kanata/Stittsville Refugee Sponsorship Group. Tickets for the concert by Big Soul Project gospel choir and band are available from Stittsville United Church at 613-836-4962. Tickets are $20 for adults and $12 for children under 12 years of age. Big Soul Project and its talented band “Deep Grove” entertain audiences with their joyful energy and songs of peace, hope and joy. Big Soul Project performs music from many genres including gospel, rhythm and blues, rock, Motown, reggae, pop and blues. The choir has performed at Bluesfest, Westfest and at the Black Sheep Inn in Wakefield, just to name a few locations, besides singing with Barbra Streisand last October. Roxanne Goodman is the music director of this community choir, bringing a wealth of experience as an accomplished vocalist, composer and pianist to the position. The choir was established in 1999 as the Ottawa Community Gospel Choir, growing from 12 members to over 50 by 2007. It is a non-auditioning choir with no affiliations with any particular organization. Since its founding, the choir has performed throughout the National Capital Region, performing at numerous charitable fundraisers. The Kanata/Stittsville Refugee Sponsorship Group (KSRSG), which was formed in 1996, consists of seven member churches – four in Kanata and three in Stittsville (St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, St. Thomas Anglican Church and Stittsville United Church). The mandate of the KSRSG is to sponsor United Nations Convention refugees from around the globe in order to provide assistance in their current country of residence, to provide them with a safe haven and the opportunity for a new life in Canada and to provide settlement assistance for refugees already in Canada. Sponsorship means ensuring financial, social, emotional and logistical support of sponsored individuals for their first

year in Canada. This includes support in the areas of housing, food, transportation, education, employment, cultural integration, language skills, medical and dental care, friendship and documentation to receive government services. Sponsorship also involves helping those being sponsored make links with other individuals or groups who are from similar geographical areas and cultural or religious backgrounds. Fundraising events such as this Saturday’s concert featuring the Big Soul Project gospel choir and band are one of the ways in which the KSRSG receives its funding. Contributions by individuals are also part of the group’s fundraising. In 2012, the KSRSG offered ongoing financial support for the education of four orphaned children from the Rwandian genocide. They live in Africa but have family members in Canada. The KSRSG completed its sponsorship commitments to Shay Ray and his three family members who are from Burma. The KSRSG offered financial assistance to help St. John the Evangelist Anglican Church sponsor Medhat Asmah and his family of eight from Syria. The KSRSG also welcomed Maryan Ali to Canada after four years of effort. Maryan is a refugee from Somalia who had been living in Kenya. Family members in Ottawa also assisted with her sponsorship. This year the KSRSG is continuing to offer financial support to four orphaned siblings in Rwanda to help them obtain an education and become self-sufficient. The KSRSG is also completing its sponsorship commitments in assisting Maryan Ali to become integrated into Canadian society. This year the KSRSG is proceeding with the sponsorship of a family of six who are refugees from Afghanistan presently living in Tajikistan. Family members who live in Ottawa are also assisting with this sponsorship.

Goulbourn Skating Club wraps up another season Special to the News

EMC sports - The Goulbourn Skating Club has wrapped up another skating season – and what a season! While the Club saw a slight decline in overall enrolment in the 2012-2013 season, falling from 672 skaters in the 2011-2012 season to 601 skaters in this past season, there was growth in some programs while there was a modest decrease in others. The Starskate program saw a slight growth in enrolment while the Club’s Primary and Junior Starskate programs remain very robust. The Club’s Special Olympics program saw an average of 15 participating athletes with the program anticipated to grow in the coming season. The Adult Canskate program, though, has seen a significant decrease in numbers. Over the coming summer, the Club will be reviewing all of its programs to ensure their long term viability. Coming up in 2013 is the Club’s new summer programming being offered at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex in July and August. There will be four early evening hours and two morning hours to handle this program. In the 2012-2013 season, the Goulbourn Skating Club held three major skating events for its members. In October, the Club held a “Welcome Back” costume party complete with a live band and Lone Star treats. Many participants dressed up in costume to make this a memorable occasion. In November, the Club held its annual “Fun

Day” with both on and off ice activities for the Club’s Canskaters, Starskaters and Special Olympians. Canadian figure skating star Elizabeth Manley was the special guest for the on-ice sessions for the Starskaters and Special Olympians. In March, the Club hosted its Goulbourn Games events, providing skaters at all levels in the Canskate, Starskate and Special Olympics programs with an afternoon filled with fun games. Kevjn Timmins is the president of the Goulbourn Skating Club. The Goulbourn Skating Club, which is now the third largest skating club in the city of Ottawa, arose from the 2004 amalgamation of the Stittsville Figure Skating Club and the Richmond Skating Club. A member of Skate Canada in its Eastern Ontario Section, the Goulbourn Skating Club offers skating programs using the Johnny Leroux Stittsville Community Arena, the Richmond Memorial Community centre and the Goulbourn Recreation Complex. Programs offered by the Goulbourn Skating Club include CanSkate, Skate Canada’s learnto-skate program; StarSkate in which skaters develop their figure skating skills; CanPowerSkate which focuses on balance, power, agility, speed and endurance skills which apply not only to figure skaters but also to hockey and ringette players; AdultSkate which is geared for adults; and a Special Olympics skating program. Except for the Club’s professional skating coaches and its webmaster, the Goulbourn Skating Club operates solely through the efforts of dedicated volunteers.

T-shirt sales for Sydney Steele

Special to the News

EMC news -, a youth mental health promotion program, has benefitted thanks to grade 12 art students at South Carleton High School in Richmond. The students in the grade 12 art class earned $450 for by selling t-shirts with art designs on them. This

silk screening project began in mid-April with the t-shirt sales starting at the beginning of May. The students’ original goal of raising $300 was surpassed by $150 in the end. “Mental health is talked about a lot and we all know someone suffering from a mental illness,” says Deanna Schuster, one of the students involved in this project. The students unanimously agreed

to donate the funds earned by the sale of their t-shirts with art designs to “We chose because it means something to us and we’re helping other kids our age,” she adds. Although the fundraising goal of the students was exceeded, making these t-shirts did come with challenges. “Getting it right on the first try was very difficult, espe-

cially when it was going on someone else’s t-shirt,” says Linda Pottle, one of the students who participated in this t-shirt art project. “You had to make it perfect,” she adds. But judging by the funds earned and the response from fellow students, these challenges were overcome. has made presentations at South Carleton High School in the past. It is a bilingual “by youth for youth” mental health promotion program with the objective to reach out to youth with the aim of maintaining good mental health as well as to develop a positive thinking strategy and to decrease the stigma around mental illness and its treatment. Not only are youth heavily involved at but also they act as a youth voice for other organizations around the Ottawa area, espe-

cially in dealing with mental health. Katherine Bercuson Kawadri, who is the mental health promotion coordinator at, feels that the money raised by the South Carleton students would be best to go to’s “pens and paints” program since the students are in an art class. This “pens and paints” program is one of the initiatives at which was developed by youth themselves. It is an art-based program designed to help youth cope with stress. Every week during this “pens and paints” program, which can run from 8 to 12 weeks in duration depending on when it is run, a group of 10 to 12 youth gather at youth. net headquarters and produce art based on different discussion topics. Topics could be

about relationships, body image, self esteem or some other similar subject. always involves youth in its activities, all the way from hiring staff to being at programs. “Whenever we hire new staff, we have a young person in the room just because the staff that we hire will be the ones out there working with young people and connecting with them,” says Ms. Kawadri. “During the interview, if the youth doesn’t feel any connection, what are the chances that they will connect with young people out in the community,” she adds.

Paul Harris Fellow award goes to Brad Spriggs John Curry

EMC news - Rotary Club of Ottawa â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Stittsville member Brad Spriggs received two prestigious awards at the Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s May 21st meeting. He was presented with a Paul Harris Fellow award, an honour reserved

for those who meet the high professional and personal standards set forth by Rotary founder Paul Harris. It is Rotaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most distinguished individual award. But in addition to being presented with a Paul Harris Fellow award, Mr. Spriggs was presented with the Rotary Foundation District Service

Award for District 7040. This award goes to Rotary members who have made a signiďŹ cant contribution to Rotary over the years. Brad Spriggs joined the Rotary Club of Ottawa â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Stittsville seven years ago and since then, he has not only served as Club president but has been involved in numerous Club

projects such as establishing a library in Uganda, the annual Trivia Challenge Night and building a gazebo at a womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shelter in Kanata. And for Brad, Rotary has been a family affair, as both of his songs, Sam and Spencer, have helped with Rotary projects such as cleaning up litter along a section of Ha-

zeldean Road and delivering mums at Thanksgiving. Indeed, for their involvement with the Rotary Club of Ottawa - Stittsville, the two boys were each presented with a Rotary pin at this same meeting at which their father received his Paul Harris Fellow award and his District Service Award.

Sacred Heartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jordana Tierney - sports, drama, student council John Curry

EMC news - Sacred Heart Catholic High School grade ten student Jordana Tierney is involved in sports both at school and in the community. Although she quips that in basketball she is simply the â&#x20AC;&#x153;big tall kid who stands in the key,â&#x20AC;? you just know that her sports skill goes far beyond her height. In basketball, she not only is good from the free throw line but also her best move is driving to the basket for a layup â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not easy to do. Yes, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot more than just a tall kid â&#x20AC;&#x201C; she has talent. She plays basketball not only at the school but also in the community, with a Goulbourn Basketball Association house league team.

When she was in grade nine, she started playing volleyball at school and it has become a sport that she really likes. Her height helps in blocking shots when she is at the net. And when she is in the back row, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see her digging the ball out from shoe top territory and going on to make plays. Jordana also plays soccer, something that she has done since she was eight years old. She used to play at the competitive level but now plays with West Ottawa Soccer at the house league level. She likes both the shooting and passing involved in soccer but especially likes feeding the ball to her teammates. Indeed, this behaviour in soccer tells you something of Jordanaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s motivation for playing sports. While she likes the physical activity involved, she

also likes playing with others in a team environment. But the sports ďŹ eld and court are not the only places where you will ďŹ nd Jordana. She has been in school plays at Sacred Heart every year now since she started there in grade seven. This past April she was one of Robin Hoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;merry womenâ&#x20AC;? in the play â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Trials of Robin Hood,â&#x20AC;? which, by the way, has been nominated for best play in the upcoming Cappies Awards which honours the best in high school drama over the past school year. Jordana admits that she likes being on stage in front of an audience, likening the experience to being involved in public speaking. She hopes to be in the school play at Sacred Heart again in the coming year but

Jordana Tierney any thoughts of making drama a career choice are not there. She says that being involved in drama is â&#x20AC;&#x153;just a hobby.â&#x20AC;? As for what she might do later in life, she is not sure just yet, although she thinks it might be something involving

economics or medicine. Her favourite subject in school right now is math which she likes because there is only one right answer to a math problem. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also her best subject. Jordana, who is enrolled in the French Immersion program at Sacred Heart, lives on the family farm on Twin Elm Road outside Richmond. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a farm, though, with no animals as it is a cash-crop operation dealing with corn and soybean crops. But there is an animal in her life, namely six year old Molly, a house cat. She admits that she likes living on the farm where itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quiet and peaceful. Jordanaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favourite books include â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Hunger Games,â&#x20AC;? the science ďŹ ction novel by author Suzanne Collins, and also â&#x20AC;&#x153;To Kill A Mockingbird,â&#x20AC;?

Drum workshop

Special to the News

EMC news - The drum has a special place in First Nations culture as First Nations maintain a connection to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heartbeat of Mother Earthâ&#x20AC;? through the drum. And you can experience this connection and the role of the drum in First Nations culture by participating in an interactive workshop at the Stittsville branch of the Ottawa Public Library

Harper Leeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1960 novel that has become a modern classic. Indeed, she is even reading â&#x20AC;&#x153;To Kill A Mockingbirdâ&#x20AC;? again even though she has already read it. Jordana is also active in school life at Sacred Heart. This year she was a member of student council. She has enjoyed being on student council which organizes dances, spirit weeks and special ceremonies like the Christmas tree lighting event at the school. In addition, Jordana has been involved as a peer mentor at Sacred Heart since grade nine. In this role, she makes presentations to grade seven classes and helps the students get acquainted with the school in the fall and then keeps in contact with them throughout the school year. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also something that she enjoys doing.

on Saturday, June 8 from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. Co-hosted by the Ottawa Public Library and MASC, an Eastern Ontario organization that connects artists and learning by offering programs for children, youth, teachers, seniors and artists, this workshop will give you an opportunity to play horn rattles and hide drums as well as learn social and stomp dances. You can drop in at this interactive workshop on Saturday, June 8. For more information, please check the Ottawa Public Libraryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website at

Mary Cook’s Memories EMC lifestyle - Very important, was my Uncle Lou. Didn’t he just get an award for working on the marble in the Waldorf Astoria in the big city of New York? We even had a chip to prove it. Uncle Lou it was, who at least once a year descended on our farm out in Northcote to bring us unspeakable joy. When he came it was like Christmas all over again. Uncle Lou often came without telling Mother in advance. But when he came unannounced, always on a Saturday, we knew he was on his way before he hit the yard. He would start blowing the horn of his big black Buick when he turned into our long lane, and never let up until he came to a screeching halt at the back door. He always wore grey flannel trousers, pressed knife-sharp, and flannel shirts open at the neck. Uncle Lou was tall, and as my sister Audrey once said, he even looked important! We five children never took our eyes off the back seat of the big Buick. We knew for a fact, that inside his big brown cow-hide suitcases would be presents beyond belief. Always, there were yards of silk for Mother. And a new purse. Big. With gold clasps, and long handles. And we had no idea how he knew our sizes, but each of us would get a new piece of clothing, and everything always fit like it had been made for us! Uncle Lou would first stop at a grocery store in Renfrew, and there would be grapes and bananas, and real ham, not like we had in the smoke house, but big slices...thick...just right for sandwiches. It would take ages to unpack the Buick. And when it had been emptied, the brothers would carry the cow-hide suitcases up to the room my sister Audrey and I shared, and Uncle Lou

Uncle Lou’s visits to farm at Northcote were very much like Christmas for us

would take over the bed, and we would move down to the creton couch in the kitchen. Mother’s cheeks would be red as tomatoes, and Father, who could never understand what all the fuss was about, would treat Uncle Lou like any other visitor who came out to the farm in Northcote. That meant he would still slurp his tea out of his saucer, and sit with his feet on the oven door at night reading the Ottawa Farm Journal or the Family Herald and Weekly Star. As the evenings wore on, Mother and Uncle Lou would talk about New York and the many years Mother lived there. And he would tell her about the the elevated trains went for miles and miles now, and how a place called the Bronx was the place to live. And Mother would listen wide-eyed and ask questions, and the talk would go on and on. Uncle Lou had a wonderful singing voice, and without fail, every night Mother would get out her harmonica and he would sing and she played. And then she would set the mouth-organ aside and they would sing in harmony...songs they both knew, and my very favourite was one called, “I had a dream dear” ... I thought it was very sad, but beautiful. And sometimes I would see a tear roll down Mother’s cheek when the song was over. And I knew she would be remembering those happy years when she lived in the city she loved before she left for the backwoods of Renfrew County. And while Uncle Lou was visiting us we would have trips into Renfrew to the picture show ... at least twice during his stay. And we would have cracker jacks to munch on during the movie, and always we stopped for ice cream on the way home at Briscoe’s

General Store, which I was grateful stayed open every night until at least 11 p.m.! Too soon it would be time for Uncle Lou to pack up and head back to New York City. Whole quarters would be thrust into each of our hands, and I knew he would give Mother a few bills too which she would immediately put in the blue sugar bowl with her egg money.

Everett would swing wide the gate going out to the lane, and with the horn going full blast, Uncle Lou would spin the tires on the Buick and he was gone. And when it came time for our silent prayers each of us were expected to say before we left Mother’s knee, I would pray that Uncle Lou would return soon.

Benefits of



Did you know that the fountain of youth may be right in your own kitchen? By boosting your latest recipes with antioxidant and enzyme rich foods like papaya you can add years to your life! Papaya contains carotenes, vitamin C and flavonoids, which all help to reduce the aging process and keep your skin glowing! Papaya also contains the enzyme papain which helps digest proteins. Optimal digestion helps reduce inflammation which is associated with lifestyle diseases like cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and that dreaded belly weight! When you are adding papaya to your meals, don’t forget to toss in a few of the seeds. Their peppery and slightly bitter nature helps to protect the fruit from unwanted bugs and can help your immunity too! Tip: if you are allergic to latex, be sure and check with your health care team, as avocados, bananas and papaya may cause an allergic reaction.

If you have very ripe papaya this is the perfect dessert recipe to whip up. 1 medium sized papaya 2 tbsp lemon juice ½ tsp of papaya seeds Cut open the papaya and scoop out the seeds. Keep aside ½ tsp of seeds. Spoon out the flesh and place in a food processor with seeds. Blend until smooth and place in the freezer until frozen.
