Grand marshals for Parade of Lights John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - Stittsville’s Parade of Lights this year will have a grand marshal. In fact, the parade will have three of them. The recipients of the awards for Citizen of the Year, Senior of the Year and Youth of the Year from last spring’s Stittsville Appreciation Awards program will be riding at the front of the parade in a convertible provided by Sharkey’s Towing. These three parade marshals this year will be Citizen of the Year Helene Rivest, Senior of the Year Marion Gullock and Youth of the Year Rachel Shavrnoch. This is the first time that the Parade of Lights will have grand marshals but such marshals were a common feature of the former Villagefest parade which took place every September until a couple of years ago when the parade was cancelled. Indeed, Marilyn Jenkins, president of the Stittsville Village Association (SVA) which organizes the Parade of Lights, hopes that having grand marshals

for the Parade of Lights will become a tradition going forward. As for the Parade of Lights itself, 35 floats have been confirmed to date, with more expected and indeed being encouraged. Last year’s parade had 38 floats. “There’s still lots of room for floats,� SVA president Marilyn Jenkins says. This year there will be at least three long floats – the city of Ottawa float carrying city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri, the Brown’s Your Independent Grocer float which has been a parade stalwart for years and a Stittsville Sobeys float. It has been confirmed that the Re/Max hot air balloon flame, which always draws “oohs and awhs� along the parade route, will be back in the parade again this year. Again this year, members of the Stittsville District Lions Club will be moving along the parade route, collecting donations – both monetary and food items – for the Stittsville Food Bank. Currently the SVA is still seeking corporate spon-

sorships to help with the costs related to staging the Parade of Lights. These costs this year will be about $1,000 due to costs for the appearance fee for the highland pipe band that marches in the parade and rental of a sound system for the announcer at the corner of Stittsville Main Street and Abbott Street at Village Square Park. This year’s Parade of Lights will begin at the School Board depot across from Brown’s Your Independent Grocer on Saturday, Nov. 24 at 6:30 p.m. The parade will proceed south on Stittsville Main Street all the way to Carleton Cathcart Street (where St. Thomas Anglican Church is). At the intersection of Stittsville Main Street and Abbott Street, there will be an announcer who will identify each float as it passes by. Immediately following the parade, there will be a ceremony at Village Square Park to turn on the Christmas lights on the trees there. Members of the Stittsville District Lions Club were at the park on Tuesday, Nov. 6 to put up some lights and check all of the lights to ensure a colourful display this year.

EMC news - Stittsville’s annual Remembrance Day service last Sunday, Nov. 11 had an aerial component for the first time ever. Two vintage war planes flew over the cenotaph site at the front of the Johnny Leroux Stittsville Community Arena during the ceremony, marking the first time that such an aerial flypast had been part of the Stittsville service. The planes, both yellow and one a single wing trainer and the other a bi-plane, came out of the western sky, appearing from behind the arena as they flew west to east over the cenotaph site at just about 2:15 p.m. as the wreaths had started to be laid. But this was not all. Several minutes later, the two planes again flew over the cenotaph site, this time flying over the site from north to south. This added a new aerial feature to the annual Remembrance Day ceremony which this year happened in sunshine with blue skies spotted with whispy white clouds overhead. The service really began at 1:30 p.m. when a parade comprised of a Stittsville Legion colour party, the Highland Mist Pipe Band, veterans, Legion members, serving military, Ottawa Fire Services firefighters, members of the Stittsville District Lions Club, Cadets, vintage military vehicles, Stittsville Scouting and Girl Guides and Ottawa Fire Services fire trucks left the Legion Hall to mark along Stittsville Main Street, arriving at the cenotaph just before 2 p.m. This year’s parade was lengthy, with the leading colour party at the Wintergreen Drive/Mulkins Street intersection as the last of the fire trucks bring up the rear of the parade was passing the Legion Hall. At the cenotaph, which was surrounded by onlookers, some sitting in bleachers, the service heard Stittsville Legion padre Msgr. Joseph Muldoon, parish priest at Holy Spirit Catholic Parish in Stittsville, not only lead in the prayer “Our Father” but also to read a passage from Corinthians calling love the greatest gift from God and also a passage from St. John regarding the good shepherd. The playing of the Last Post and Reveille as well as the reading of The Red Poppy by city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri and the poem In Flanders Fields by Carleton-Mississippi Mills MPP Jack MacLaren preceded the laying of wreaths. Claire and Richard Leger laid the wreath on behalf of Silver Cross parents while other wreaths were laid by representatives of the various levels of government, the Royal Canadian Legion, various organizations and clubs and a number of businesses. The singing of “God Save the Queen” preceded the “march off” from the cenotaph area, with the veterans receiving a spontaneous burst of applause from the onlooking crowd as they marched away, headed back to the Stittsville Legion Hall.

Selling bracelets to make a difference in Nepal John Curry

john.curry@metroland.com

R0011713406

EMC news - They’re bracelets made of handmade hemp and beads. And they’re going to be the means that allows Allyson Theriault of Stittsville to make a difference in Nepal. That’s right, these colourful bracelets that Allyson makes and is now selling for ten dollars each are going to provide the funds that she needs to travel to Nepal this coming March and work with a group building a new room at a school. All she needs now is for people to buy these bracelets. They are on sale at Blue Bamboo Yoga at the Jackson Trails Centre plaza in Stittsville, as well as the Blue Bamboo Yoga studio in Ka-

nata. They are also on sale at the Urban Tags consignment shop at the Mac’s plaza at the corner of Stittsville Main Street and Hobin Street in Stittsville. These are handmade bracelets, each one made by Allyson herself. She began making them last September to raise money for the Global Seva Challenge 2012, an initiative which assists organizations that provide support to survivors of the sex trafficking industry in India. She set a goal of raising $300 and ended up raising over $1,000. Not bad for someone who did not know how to bead or make bracelets. However, she taught herself how to do it by watching a You Tube video and her resulting successful sales and fundraising are proof that she

quickly mastered the art of making the bracelets. It takes her about 20 minutes to make each bracelet, with each one costing about two dollars to make due to the cost of the beads and the hemp string needed to create them. Her initial sales of these bracelets raising money for the Global Seva Challenge 2012 proved to be so well received and popular that she decided to try to raise the $3,000 that she needs for her trip to Nepal to help out there by selling more of the bracelets. This time she has added a printed tag to the bracelets which explains why the bracelets are being sold, namely to help out a school in Nepal. She will be heading to Chainpur, Nepal this coming March to work with a group to complete a school room to provide a safe environment in which students can learn. “Creating Possibilities,� a partner organization in Nepal, currently supports 113 indentured girls who belong to families who have recently been freed from bonded labour but who have insufficient means to survive. Allyson, who teaches yoga at both the Blue Bambool Yoga studio in Stittsville as well as at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex, is going to Nepean in a trip facilitated by “Developing World Connections,� based in British Columbia. The inspirational title given to these arranged service based trips to “Yoga, Action, Adventure.� Allyson will be heading to Nepal with a group under the leadership of Megan Campbell, founder of “Journey of the Yogini� or JOY in short. Although she has no construction or building experience, she feels that the work

in Nepal will be very doable since it will probably involve digging trenches and mixing cement, both of which can be done by the relatively inexperienced. “I’m passionate about taking my yoga outside the studio and encouraging others to do the same,� Allyson says. She is happy when she sees people wearing her handmade hemp and bead bracelets, knowing that each bracelet represents a person who has made a conscious decision to support the global community and to make a difference.

She notes that the bracelets make an ideal gift. Allyson’s passion for going to help out in Nepal can be seen from the fact that she not only has her bracelets on sale to raise funds but she has even taken a part-time job at the Bayshore Shopping Centre to help in raising the required monies. Nepal is a landlocked country in South Asia with a population of about 27 million people. It is located in the Himalayas and is bordered to the north by China and to the south, east and west by India.

Kathmandu is the capital of Nepal and its largest city. The mountainous north of Nepal has eight of the world’s ten tallest mountains including Mount Everest. It has more than 240 peaks over 20,000 feet above sea level. The south of the country is fertile and humid and is heavily urbanized. Hindu is the most common religion in Nepal, with Buddhism being a minority faith. About two thirds of female adults and one third of male adults in Nepal are illiterate.

Ottawa’s Health is in Your Hands.

Get Your Flu Vaccine. Each year, 5-10% of Canadians are affected by influenza, or what is commonly referred to as “the flu”. This disease causes missed days at school and work, and may require increased visits to the hospitals. The Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care offers influenza vaccines at no cost to everyone who is six months of age and older and who lives, works or attends school in Ontario. Influenza can be a serious respiratory disease - not to be confused with the common cold. Influenza spreads rapidly through sneezing and coughing and through direct contact with objects that have come into contact with the virus. Symptoms include fever, headache, cough, aches and extreme fatigue. Weakness can be moderate to severe and last up to one month. Children and seniors are most at risk of getting influenza. Complications include pneumonia and/or worsening of medical conditions. The most effective way to avoid getting the flu is to be vaccinated. Each year, the World Health Organization (WHO)

recommends which strains of influenza should be included in the vaccine. It is very safe and cannot give you the flu because the vaccine contains only dead virus. The most common side effect is a sore arm for one or two days. Some people develop a fever and muscle aches. These symptoms are usually mild and can easily be managed with rest, extra fluids and mild pain medication. It takes about two weeks after receiving the vaccine to be protected against influenza. To remain protected, you need to get vaccinated every year. While children and seniors are most at risk of getting the flu, healthy people should also get the vaccine to protect themselves and those who are at risk in the community. The vaccine is safe for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Children under nine years old need two doses, given at least four weeks apart, if they have not had an influenza vaccine before. Ottawa Public Health offers influenza vaccine clinics all over the city. For clinic details, visit ottawa.ca/flu or contact

Ottawa Public Health Information at 613-580-6744. The influenza vaccine is also available through physician offices and some pharmacies.

Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tax holiday amounts to a bribe

C

ouncil is selling a plan to offer businesses a â&#x20AC;&#x153;tax holidayâ&#x20AC;? to locate in OrlĂŠans and along part of Carling Avenue as a way to stimulate economically depressed areas in the city. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s call it what it really is: a bribe. Businesses who cash in on this offer will split an estimated $20 million in property tax refunds over five years. Innes Coun. Rainer Bloess

says the city isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t â&#x20AC;&#x153;shovelling cash at anyone,â&#x20AC;? adding that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s difficult to justify transit and infrastructure investment in an area with no business development growth. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a chicken-and-egg problem, he said. The councillor has chosen the correct metaphor, but drawn the wrong conclusion. If council wants to encourage business development in the city, it should provide good transit and infrastructure, build communities that

allow residents to live, work and play without a commute. That doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean forfeiting $20 million in potential tax revenue. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s property tax money which should help the city pay for services and infrastructure in the area. Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $20-million plan offers a temporary tax deferral, but no other tangible and permanent inducements that businesses value. If the city wants to encourage economic development in

the east end, it should consider fast-tracking construction of light rail to OrlĂŠans. The pilot program put before council last week was light on details. There was no accompanying eligibility criteria â&#x20AC;&#x201C; just the names OrlĂŠans and Carling Avenue. The project was snuck in front of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finance committee, buried in a mound of other reports. Using Bloessâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; chickenand-egg analogy, which

should come first? A decision to forfeit $20 million in property taxes or a sound plan based on study and sober discussion? To be fair, council has done a lot to encourage economic development in Ottawa this term. It transformed OCRI into Invest Ottawa and created a plan to encourage entrepreneurship. But over the past two weeks it has come up with two ill-conceived and unfair

economic development plans. Last week, council agreed to offer special treatment to larger businesses that set up shop in Ottawa â&#x20AC;&#x201C; basically putting small businesses at a comparative disadvantage. Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tax holiday has the same effect, pitting ward against ward. A plan that bribes businesses to locate in a particular ward is unfair, unwise and ill-conceived. Coun. Diane Deans called the plan the start of a slippery slope, suggesting economic development should be market driven. Taxpayers would likely agree.

COLUMN

War against progress continues be full of iconic Canadian images and iconic Canadian politicians, not all of them Conservative. The passports will also have the inevitable chip in them, electronic rather than edible. The chip will have an antenna, which isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as alarming as it sounds. You can still put it in your pocket, but you can also wave it at a scanner which will then know everything about you. Apparently the scanner wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know more about you than a person could, from reading whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s printed on the passport, but in our society we now like our machines to know as much as possible. People less so. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why the Ontario government put machines in most of the shopping centres, allowing you to do such things as renew your car registration without having to be in contact with a human being. Those machines were actually quite efficient and enabled you to skip long lineups. For some reason there werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t long line-ups at the machines. The lack of a lineup might have been due to more people doing their government business online. Still, it is worth keeping in mind that when you deal with a human being rather than a machine you might be helping human beings stay employed. Speaking of which â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and apologies for the lame transition â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Queen Elizabeth is more fully employed on the new $20 bill than she was on the old one. The bill, issued last week, has her image on it three times, compared to the old billâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the big portrait on the front of the bill and smaller images peering out from those metallic strips front and back. On the new $50, which was issued in March, the three images are of Mackenzie King, so this one is definitely an improvement. Six Queens will get you a new passport, which you can wave at a scanner and it will know everything about you. Is life great or what?

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town

T

he pace of change is exhausting. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re changing the passport, changing the $20 bill, closing the ServiceOntario machines and starting Christmas music later at Shoppers Drug Mart. So much to learn, so little time. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s start with the last one. An unanticipated wave of common sense swept over the business community, resulting in a decision by a major retail chain to hold off on the Christmas music until at least after Remembrance Day. You might not even have noticed that it was missing in the days after Halloween. But maybe you did. Maybe you were walking through the drugstore with an odd little feeling that something was just a bit off. Then you realized, right there in the razor blades aisle, that the song playing was Raindrops Are Falling on My Head, not Jingle Bell Rock. Somehow you resisted the urge to complain. When you learned the reason why, you might even have applauded. Christmas music, particularly the cheery commercial kind, can wait until after we have had time to think about the costs and sacrifices of war. Who knows, maybe the idea will catch on, more businesses will adopt this practice next year and we can be spared Frosty the Snow Man until there is actual frost. Meanwhile, there are gains and losses in the war against technology. Example: fancy new passports coming which will

Jazz music fills air at Gaia Java john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - Ben Gatien’s colourful artwork featuring musicians playing instruments like the trumpet and saxophone line one wall at the Gaia Java Coffee Company shop in Stittsville. And it may have seemed to some that these paintings came alive last Friday evening as jazz music filled the air at the coffee shop. But while the artwork provided an interesting background for the evening’s entertainment, the music came from the talented instruments of the youthful Patrick Smith Trio, a group of young Ottawa musicians. It was a jazz presentation featuring the traditional format of individual solos within the overall piece. So you had Patrick Smith on his saxophone taking the lead at times. At other times guitarist Rob Wanell took the spotlight. And while bassist Ben Heard was usually providing the solid background music for the trio, he also had his moments in the solo sun. And, as per jazz tradition, each solo effort on its completion, be it on saxophone, guitar or bass, brought forth a round of applause from the audience. The trio offerings ranged from more upbeat tunes to mellow, slower pieces, showing the group’s versatility.

Patrick Smith, who plays the saxophone, is a grade 12 students at Bell High School who is planning to pursue a university education in jazz performance next year. He currently plays in various groups around Ottawa includ-

ing the Nepean All City Jazz Band and the Capital Youth Jazz Orchestra. Rob Wanell, the guitarist in the Patrick Smith Trio, is a grade 11 student at Nepean High School. He is involved with several local jazz groups

and plans to pursue a music degree in university. Ben Heard, the bassist, is a grade 10 student at Centerbury High School. He plays with a number of musical groups around Ottawa including the Nepean All City Jazz Band.

EMC news - The Stittsville Village Association (SVA) was part of a delegation which took its opposition to the proposal for a new landfill at the Waste Management site on Carp Road right to the Ontario Minister of the Environment himself. A delegation of David and Marilyn Jenkins from the SVA, city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri and Harold Moore, a longtime opponent of landfill development on the Carp Road site, met recently with Ontario Minister of the Environment Jim Bradley in Toronto. In its presentation to the Minister, the group made the point that the Carp Road location is not a good one for allowing an expanded landfill operation because of the widespread and populous community that has grown up around the site, because of the soil and rock conditions on which it is located and because there are better technologies available than burying garbage in the ground. The presentation emphasized that the proposed new landfill at the site should be called by what it is, a “dump” rather than by the terminology “West Carleton Environmental Centre” which is the proposal. Marilyn Jenkins, the SVA president who made the presentation, said in a report about the meeting at the SVA executive

meeting on Thursday, Nov. 8 that she stressed to the Minister that the community would be prepared to discuss alternate methods of handling garbage being established at the Carp Road site but not a dump which she said is not appropriate in the middle of a community of 100,000 people. An Environmental Assessment (EA) dealing with the proposed new landfill at the Carp Road site has been submitted by Waste Management to the Ontario Ministry of the Environment. November 2 was the deadline for the submission of comments from the public about this EA. The coalition of groups opposing this proposed new landfill, including the SVA, submitted a document of more than 100 pages, outlining its opposition to the proposed new landfill. The Ministry of the Environment has until early January to review the EA and to provide staff comments to the Minister. Members of the public at that time will have seven weeks to comment on these staff comments. It will then be up to the Minister of the Environment to make a decision on the EA and the future of the proposed landfill site. David Jenkins, who was at the presentation to the Minister, told the SVA executive that the presentation went as well as the group could have hoped. Councillor Qadri said that the Minister, Jim Bradley, appeared to be “very receptive” to the group’s presentation.

at Holy Spirit Parish Special to the News

EMC news - This Saturday, Nov. 17 is the date for the third annual bazaar and tea room hosted by the Catholic Women’s League (CWL) at Holy Spirit Parish in Stittsville. The event will run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Holy Spirit church hall on Shea Road in Stittsville. Everyone is invited, not only to purchase a new or gently used item in the bazaar but also to take home a Christmas pudding. The CWL will also have a table of religious items on sale at the event. You may want one for your home or perhaps for a son or daughter or family

friend or relative who will be making a First Communion in the coming months. But this is not all. The CWL bazaar and tea room will also feature a draw for Christmas gift baskets. As for the tea room, it will be offering both lunch and dessert plates. The lunch will include chili or soup and a beverage, along with dessert. The dessert plate will include muffins, desserts and coffee, tea or juice. There’s going to be lots to see and do at this CWL bazaar and tea room at Holy Spirit Parish on Saturday, Nov. 17 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Jinkinson Road quarry proposal Special to the News

EMC news - There may be yet another quarry developed in the Jinkinson Road area of Goulbourn. Already a number of quarries exist along Jinkinson Road include Cavanagh Construction’s Henderson Quarry and its Beagle Club Quarry. Now Taggart Construction is seeking a rezoning for a parcel of land that is surrounded by the Trans Canada Trail to the north, Jinkinson Road and the Cavanagh Construction Beagle Club Quarry to the west, Fernbank Road to the south and the Stittsville Shooting Range to the east. The proposed quarry will occupy 115.1 hectares of the 141.9 hectare site. The rezoning would change the zoning on the lands from Mineral Aggregate Reserve,

Subzone 1 to Mineral Extraction Zone. This would then permit the actual extraction of aggregate from the site. An application has been filed with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources for approval for a quarry on the site, extracting aggregate from below the water table. To be known as the Fernbank Quarry, this quarry would be extracting limestone and dolostone from below the water table. The aggregate extracted would be used for road construction and septic system installation, as well as other construction projects. Lorraine Stevens is the city of Ottawa planner who is handling this file. She can be contacted at 613-580-2424, ext. 15077 or via email at Lorraine.Stevens@ottawa.ca

Waldorf’s Christmas Fair John Curry

john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - If you get excited about Christmas, then you’ll want to make note of the upcoming Christmas Fair being hosted by the Ottawa Waldorf School in Stittsville. It promises lots of enchantment for everyone of all ages. Where do we start? How about with the Cookie Cavern? It’s going to be a dark, starlit cave filled with, what else, cookies. Now that’s a place you’ll want to go. But there’s lots more.

There will be beeswax candle dipping and crafts of all kinds, both for children and those young at heart. The magical atmosphere that will pervade the school on this particular day, namely Sunday, Nov. 25, will extend to a puppet play that will be presented twice – once at 11 a.m. and again at 1 p.m. There will be a children’s store featuring homemade treasures. And there will be vendors who will be able to help you with your Christmas shopping. And on top of all of this, there will be a delicious lunch of homemade food available, prepared by the school’s parents. Just a real treat!

So, it will be held exactly one month before Christmas – on Sunday, Nov. 25 running from 10 a.m. through to 3 p.m. Everyone is most welcome and encouraged to attend and have a great time. The Ottawa Waldorf School is located at 1 Goulbourn Street in Stittsville. It is most easily reached by parking in the municipal parking lot on the east side of Stittsville Main Street just south of Abbott Street. The school is right adjacent to the parking lot. It can also be reached via Goulbourn Street which runs off Elm Crescent (north) which in turn runs off Stittsville Main Street right near Jo-Jo’s Pizza.

EMC news - Listening to Christmas songs, Enjoyable. Hearing Christmas songs sung by a barbershop chorus in a cappella style in four-part harmony. Awesome.

In the cutline for the photo in last week’s paper showing the presentation of a giant cheque for $915 from the Stittsville District Lions Club to help seven year old Anderson Bihler recover from the brain aneurysm and massive stroke, the donation was mistakenly referenced as coming from the Richmond District Lions Club when it was the Stittsville District Lions Club as clearly seen on the giant cheque being presented.

In addition, numerous hair stylists from across Ottawa will also be involved. All hair donations of over ten inches in length will be going to Angel Hair for Kids while monetary donations will be split between the Ottawa Hospital Foundation and Angel Hair for Kids.

ville Village Association (SVA), organizer of the upcoming Parade of Lights, still has a need for more volunteers to look after the traffic barricades which prevent traffic from accessing Stittsville Main Street during the parade.

This initiative is raising funds in support of the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation’s eight million dollar campaign “The Cancer Research project.” This campaign provides funding for personalized medicine and clinical trials including the CyberKnife. This is an instrument which provides a non-invasive treatment option for partients who have inoperable tumours, surgically complex tumours or those who prefer an alternative to surgery. For patients, the CyberKnife not only means no invasive surgery but also no difficult recovery time, no hospital stay and no chance of infection. Basil has become involved because the CyberKnife was used to help save the life of a close friend of his.

Academic achievement honoured at Sacred Heart Special to the News

EMC news - Academic achievement was front and centre at Sacred Heart Catholic High School in Stittsville on Tuesday, Nov. 6. That’s when the school held its annual academic awards assembly, honouring students who had excelled in their studies in various undergraduate courses in the 2011-2012 school year. In her comments to the students at the assembly, Sacred Heart principal Cindy Owens reminded the students that the assembly was being held not only to recognize the academic accomplishments of students but also to celebrate the development by students of attitudes and habits that lead to success. These attitudes and habits will help in the future when the students are in society, making a contribution. Principal Owens said that success in reality is the result of a lot of hard work and persistence. “There are no shortcuts to any place worth going to,” she said. The assembly included recognizing the students who made the school’s honour roll

as well as the students who earned top marks in the various courses. There were also a number of individual awards presented at the assembly. Joshua Lozanski received the Goulbourn Township Historical Society Award which recognizes a student who has combined a lot of history with academic achievement. The Kiwanis Club of Goulbourn Citizenship Award went to Evelyn Pageau. This award recognizes a student who has exhibited the qualities associated with good citizenship. The Catholic Education Foundation of Ottawa Catholic Student Award went to Keely Noiles. Awards were also presented to the students who scored high in mathematics contests and also students who participated in the White Pine Club, a reading program for high school students. Each school year, the University of Waterloo and the Centre for Education in Mathematics and Computer sponsor math contests at each high school grade level in schools across Canada. Medals are provided for the first place

student at each grade level in a school. In addition, certificates of distinction are issued to students who finish in the top 25 percent in their level of the competition. At this Sacred Heart assembly, Hanya Wyatt received the Pascal Medal for grade nine. The Cayley Medal at the grade ten level went to Justin Stauch and Alexandra Tierney. Cayley certificates were presented to Aidan Horvath, Justin Stauch and Alexandra Tierney. The Fermat Medal for grade 11 was presented to Jeremy Francispillai who also received a Fermat certificate.

Second annual craft fair Councillor promises that at Richmond Public School concerns will be addressed for any new developments Special to the News

EMC news - Your Christmas shopping may already be underway. That’s good, but one place that you want to make sure you go is the second annual craft fair being hosted by the Parent Council at Richmond Public School. Held in the gymnasium at Richmond Public School, this craft fair has quite a lineup of crafters, one (or more) of which may have that unique item that will make a perfect gift for that friend, neighbour or family member. There will be knitting and

crocheted items; hand painted silk scarves; aprons; dog sweaters; wooden toys and puzzles; handcrafted primitive signs; jewellery; baby items; Christmas ornaments; portraits; cake pops; and artisan bread. And if that is not enough, vendors will be there representing Epicure; Stella & Dot Jewellery and Accessories; a travel agency; Aloette Cosmetics (aloe vera products), BeautiControl (skin care and cosmetics); and Scentsy (flameless candle warmers and wax).

But wait, there’s still more. There will be a book sale by the school’s grade five students, raising funds for their leaving ceremony in June. There will also be a bake sale and the 4th Richmond Brownies will be on hand selling a handmade craft. So, as you see, there’s going to be lots there at this second annual craft fair at Richmond Public School on McBean Street in Richmond on Saturday, Nov. 24, running from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Everyone is welcome. Plan to attend.

QUEEN TOURING AND UNIVERSAL MUSIC GROUP PRESENT

john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - The city councillor has made a commitment. Speaking at the Richmond Village Association (RVA) meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 6, Rideau-Goulbourn ward councillor Scott Moffatt said that he would ensure that all of the concerns of the community are addressed “as best as possible” for any development applications which are submitted to the city for Richmond. He said that he would do this for any community and is not adopting this approach just for Richmond. His commitment came after a discussion at the RVA meeting about possible future development in Richmond and how community concerns would be handled in such cases. At the conclusion of the discussion, RVA president Don Flanders suggested that all of the community’s concerns about past development proposals, particularly the Mattamy Homes proposal, should be outlined in an email sent to councillor Moffatt so that they would all be on record for future reference. RVA director Heather Martineau pressed councillor Moffatt on the matter, saying that she wanted a commitment from the city that it is looking out for her interests with regard to any development in the village. She said that having small frontage lots in new developments would change the rural nature of the community into an urban setting. “That is not the norm in Richmond,” she said about lots with small frontages. Ms. Martineau said that people who have moved to Richmond have done so because of the size of the lots available. She said that while she supports development in the community, there is no infrastructure in place at present to handle such growth.

Councillor Moffatt did point out that if a developer provides sewer and water services to a development, then the density of housing allowed would increase. He also noted that the market plays a big factor in development, adding that in his view Richmond, much like Manotick, may see 75 new homes sold in a year whereas higher growth areas like Barrhaven may see 200 to 300 new homes built and sold in any particular year. This means that any large-scale development in Richmond will take 20 to 25 years to build out. RVA secretary Rosemary McArthur told councillor Moffatt that there has to be a discussion of infrastructure needs in the community related to transportation, water and flooding before there is any talk about pretty new houses. She said that the majority of wells in the village are shallow wells so that residents are concerned about any development proposal that involves a community well that draws from the deep aquifer beneath the village which may impact on the shallow aquifer feeding the existing wells. Director Martineau added that any water study should be done by an independent consultant and not by a consultant paid for by a developer. She said that she does not trust the results of any such study paid for by a developer. The study done for the Mattamy Homes proposal was paid for by the developer. Councillor Moffatt noted that the whole planning process around the Mattamy Homes proposal for the lands at the western side of the village was funded by Mattamy Homes. He said that the process would not have happened had Mattamy not providing the funding since the city of Ottawa does not have the money to pay for many of these development studies and Community Design Plans.

EMC news - Jack ‘o lanterns may be the focus of a new Richmond community event. Richmond Village Association (RVA) director Rosemary McArthur suggested the new event at the Nov. 6 RVA meeting. It would take the form of a post-Halloween happening in which everyone in the community with a jack ‘o lantern or carved pumpkin would take

it to a central location where they would be arranged in some design, perhaps in the form of the letters R, V, A. Once assembled, the jack ‘o lanterns would be lit in the evening, presenting a unique, one-time sight. The event would have the added bonus of all of the carved jack ‘o lanterns being assembled in one spot where they could be picked up by the city’s waste disposal forces. RVA president Don Flanders said it was an idea that

the RVA could consider doing as there would be no cost involved. A main challenge would be finding a location where the event could take place. The South Carleton High School grounds or the Richmond fairgrounds were suggested as possibilities. The RVA will be considering the idea further at a meeting sometime next year, possibly in June, but in time for the event to be organized if the RVA decides to proceed with it.

SVA rain barrel pick-up day on April 20, 2013 john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - Saturday, April 20, 2013 is rain barrel day in Stittsville. That’s the day when people will be able to pick up a rain barrel purchased through the Stittsville Village Association (SVA) by stopping at the parking lot at Stittsville Sobeys where the rain barrels will have been unloaded from a truck and be waiting for pickup. This will mirror what happened earlier this year when the SVA sold 407 rain barrels in its first-ever attempt to do so. For 2013 the SVA had an opportunity to partner with the Bridlewood Scouts on the sale of rain barrels. However, following discussion, the SVA executive decided at its Nov. 8 meeting to go it alone again this year. Difficulty in determining how to fairly divide the revenue from the sale of barrels played a part in the SVA decision not to partner with the Bridlewood group. The sales are all done online with no way of telling the location of sale. The SVA liked the idea of having the Bridlewood Scouts available to help out with the door-to-door distribution of flyers advertising the rain barrel sale but the SVA executive decided that such help with the distribution of flyers could be obtained through the assistance of a group like the Stittsville Scouts or a Stittsville church youth group in return

for a honorarium or donation to the group rather than a percentage of sales. It was also felt that the Bridlewood Scouts could partner with another group from Kanata for a rain barrel sale rather than partner with the SVA. The SVA is willing to provide advice about such a rain barrel sale based on the group’s experience earlier this year. Once again for the 2013 rain barrel sale, the SVA will receive assistance from Stittsville Sobeys whose owner, Tim LaPlante, sits on the SVA executive. He offered to provide the printed flyers, to advertise the rain barrel sale in Stittsville Sobeys newspaper advertising and to have the rain barrels on display in the store prior to the sale date. In addition, Stittsville Sobeys staff will assist with the unloading of the barrels from the delivery truck as happened this year. The SVA executive also felt that perhaps some other Stittsville businesses could be approached regarding handing out the rain barrel sale flyers to customers and perhaps having a rain barrel on display in their stores. Tim LaPlante of Stittsville Sobeys believes that the SVA should aim to try to sell 500 rain barrels in 2013, up from this year’s 407 figure. SVA president Marilyn Jenkins suggested that selling two truckloads of rain barrels, namely 600 (300 barrels per truckload), would be a really good outcome for the 2013 rain barrel sale.

$350,000 damage in Flewellyn Road fire Special to the News

EMC news - Fire ravaged a Flewellyn Road home in Goulbourn last Sunday morning. Ottawa Fire Services firefighters received the call at 7:30 a.m., rushing to the scene where they found heavy black smoke conditions and open fire. Due to interior structural conditions due to fire damage, firefighters assumed a defensive rather than offensive attack treatment for battling the fire. Damage from the fire is estimated at $350,000 for the bungalow home with another $75,000 in damage to the contents. Firefighters were still on the scene at 10 a.m., extinguished hot spots. An elderly couple lived in the home but both were out of the home when the firefighters arrived on the scene. The firefighters did treat an 84 year old female for smoke inhalation until paramedics arrived and took over the care. She was eventually transported to hospital. The fire is believed to have started in the basement of the home, although the cause has yet to be determined. Fire investigators were called to the scene to help determine the cause. The fire caused extensive damage to the main floor area of the home. There was also heavy smoke damage throughout the home. The fire was reported by the homeowner who noticed smoke filling the basement and ran to a neighbouring home to call 91-1. Victims assistance was not required in this case as the couple have family residing in the area.

Fashion show is difference maker John Curry

john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - It was a Christmas tea and bazaar with a difference. Sure, there were knitted knick-knacks on a table right inside the entrance door to the St. John’s Anglican Church Hall in Richmond. And there was a popular bake table, with tarts, carrot cake and the like. And there was a hall full of tables set with red tablecloths with over 80 enjoying finger sandwiches and tea or coffee, served for some by a vest-wearing man or even by St. John’s rector Rev. Michel Dubord.

And wafting through the hall were the keyboard stylings of Saundra Vandenberg, adding a musical touch to the atmosphere. Potted mums were arranged along the front of the hall’s stage while Christmas trees were here and there in the hall – beside the on-stage podium, at the ticket table, near the bake table and more. But what made this event even more unique and special was a fashion show featuring fashions from the Alia N Tan Jay store at the Hazeldean Mall in Kanata. Store manager Jackie Salisbury served as the fashion show’s commentator, describing the outfits modeled by the

ten models, all St. John’s parishioners. They modeled two outfits each, featuring holiday and fall clothing with matching jewellery and accessories. These models were Marsha Deyell, Christine Ormsby, Kathy Dubord, Cara Thornhill, Nancy Mills, Nancy Evoy, Anne Marie Renaud, Lisa Raymond, Audrey Turpin and Liana Medynski. Each model was escorted around the hall by bow tied, dark suited Harvey Renaud who earlier had been doing extra duty directing vehicles parking around the church hall. How’s that for a classy event – a parking attendant wearing a bow tie and dark jacket.

Christmas is every day at Toys “R” Us John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news – Although Christmas is still a little over six weeks away, last Saturday sure had the Christmas feeling, at least at the new Toys “R” Us/Babies “R” Us store on the Hazeldean Road. No, there was no snow on the ground. Indeed, it was a bright, sunny day with blue skies overhead and a little above freezing temperature, making it great for the dozens growing to be hundreds who lined up for the store’s 9:30 a.m. opening. On Christmas Day, families get up early, with excitement in their thoughts. This was the case at this new store’s opening, particularly for members of the Marczak and LeBlanc families who arrived at 7 a.m. and were first in the lineup to enter the store. And, for their early rising, they received a $100 gift card presented to them by Geri Drysdale, the new store’s director. Talk about Christmas coming early! For youngsters, Christmas is all about toys and Toys “R” Us certainly qualifies for this – indeed, it is like an ongoing Christmas Day, with toys in every direction, aisle after aisle – Lego, Barbie, Skylanders Giants – you name it and it’s there somewhere. When the doors opened at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 10 following a brief ribbon cutting ceremony, shoppers, many with youngsters in tow, streamed through the doors. Indeed, the steady stream continued for more than 45 minutes. And as they entered, they grabbed a blue shopping cart or were handed a blue shopping basket. They were greeted by Toys “R” Us staff and given gift cards and toy samples. But imagine the thrill, just like on a Christmas morning, when inside the store they saw a host of Star Wars characters – R2D2, a Storm Trooper, Darth Vader, Princess Leia and more. And these were not on the shelves but were there in real life size and they moved and walked. Wow! There was R2D2, actually moving, with a Jedi there as well with a lightsaber. What

a photo op and many parents took advantage of it, while their children were able to get up close and personal with R2D2 and the others. If Star Wars was not your thing, there was always Geoffrey the Giraffe, the store’s mascot, or red Clifford the dog or Spiderman – or what about the face painting or the science experiment creating that bubbly stuff or wearing a balloon hat. Cupcakes were being handed out and radio station Majic 100.3 was there just inside the door, doing a remote broadcast and telling everyone about the store’s grand opening. If this wasn’t Christmas come early, then it sure was just about as good as it gets on a day without Santa Claus. And the city’s own jolly gentleman, mayor Jim Watson, made an appearance, albeit just a little too late for the ribbon cutting but in lots of time to present store director Geri Drysdale with a framed certificate from the city welcoming the new Toys “R” Us and Babies “R” Us store to the municipality. The Babies “R” Us section of the store – with its baby strollers, car seats, and lots for that special baby – proved popular with the store’s opening day customers, as did the aisles and aisles of toys. At the ribbon cutting ceremony which happened just outside the entrance door, in bright sunlight, everyone was

promised lots of fun inside by Barb Hall, the Toys “R” Us district manager. And no truer words were spoken as verified by the smiling faces and happy chatter by the customers when they swarmed inside when the store opened. Before the formal ribbon cutting, which involved store director Geri Drysdale and city of Ottawa councillor Shad Qadri, Marianne Wilkinson and Allan Hubley, Stittsville ward councillor Qadri, in whose ward the store is actually located, had the opportunity to say a few words. He called himself and his two fellow councillors the “Three Amigos” from the west end of the city while expressing happiness at seeing this new store opening in the community, a community whose history goes back to the 1820’s with settlement by veterans of the War of 1812. He said that the employment provided by the new store helps the community fulfil its mission of being a community where people can live, work and play. He said that while babies and youngsters will now have their dreams fulfilled at this Toys “R” Us/Babies “R” Us store, he is now looking for establishment of a “Seniors ‘R’ Us” store in the community to meet the dreams of its seniors. Toys “R” Us, founded in 1948, a dedicated toy retailer, operates more than 875 Toys “R” Us and Babies “R” Us

stores in the United States as well as more than 625 stores in international locations such as Canada. The first Babies “R” Us store opened in 1996 in New York State. Today Babies “R” Us, a specialty baby products retailer, has about

260 stores in the United States. This new Toys “R” Us and Babies “R” Us store, which serves both the Stittsville and Kanata communities as well as the surrounding areas, is located at 5661 Hazeldean Road which is the new shopping

area at the northeast corner of Hazeldean Road and the Huntmar Drive/Iber Road intersection. This shopping area is also home to the new Food Basics store as well as a Penningtons store and a branch of TD Canada Trust.

EMC news - The Goulbourn Jubilee Singers are making it easy for you to attend its 35th anniversary concert coming up in December. A special anniversary admission price of only five dollars per person is being offered to those who attend the concert as a way of thanking the choir’s supporters for their 35 years of support. Tickets for the concert are available now by calling 613813-8414 or 613-825-3357 or by logging onto www.gjsingers or www.facebook.com/ Gjsingers . And this is a concert that you will not want to miss because it will be offering a triple threat of music – some celebrating the choir’s 35th anniversary, some marking the Queen’s Diamond Jubi-

lee and some proclaiming the Christmas season. All three musical offerings will be tied up into one at this concert. It is something that you will want to hear. The concert, called “Christmas Jubilee,” will feature both the Goulbourn Jubilee Singers and its junior choir, the JJ’s, under the direction of Linda Crawford and accompanied by Doll Creelman. You will have two chances to hear the concert. It will be performed on Saturday, Dec. 8 at 7:30 p.m. at the Glen Cairn United Church at the corner of Abbeyhill Drive and Old Colony Road in the Glen Cairn community in Kanata. A second performance will take place on Sunday, Dec. 9 at 1:30 p.m., also at the Glen Cairn United Church.

EMC news - Stittsville’s outdoor hockey rinks need some volunteer operators. There are five out of the nine outdoor rinks in the community where volunteers are in place to operate and maintain these rinks during the coming winter. These rinks are those at Crossing Bridge Park on Hobin Street, Ralph Street Park on Ralphpark Street, Cypress Gardens Park on elm Crescent, Upcountry Park on Upcountry drive and Bandmaster Park on Mistral Way. But four other rinks in the community will not operate this coming winter unless volunteers come forward to operate them. These are the rinks at Bryanston Gate Park on Alon Street, Coyote Park on West Ridge Drive, Trustee M. Curry Park on Hartsmere Drive and Fringewood Park on Fringewood Drive. The city of Ottawa’s community operated outdoor rink program provides the opportunity for volunteers to operate and maintain an outdoor neighbourhood rink with funding support from the city. Anyone interested in helping out with getting the four remaining community rinks up and operating this coming winter should contact city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri or contact the city’s outdoor rink program at 613-5802590.

Book on stained glass windows stained glass window tradition. In fact, there are more than 100 such stained glass windows in 12 Goulbourn township churches or former churches. And now these windows are all available for viewing, not by having to visit all these churches but in the pages of a new book published by the Goulbourn Township Historical Society entitled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Goulbourn Stained Glass.â&#x20AC;? The book not only features full colour photos of 105 stained glass windows found in Goulbourn churches but also features stories surrounding each window researched and written by au-

John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - Stained glass windows have been a feature in churches for centuries. Evidence of stained glass windows in Britain can be found as early as the seventh century. Stained glass designs became more elaborate during the Middle Ages and in the following Renaissance and Reformation periods. And it has continued through to the present, with many new techniques and types of glass used. Goulbourn churches are part of this

thor S. Bernard Shaw. Many of these stories involve early Goulbourn pioneer families in Stittsville, Richmond, Munster, Ashton and Dwyer Hill. The 60 page book is selling for $20 a copy and can be ordered with a cheque sent by mail to the Goulbourn Historical Society, P.O. Box 621, Stittsville, Ontario K2S 1A7. The cheque should also include $3 for postage for one copy or $5 for postage for two copies. The book will also be on sale at the Historical Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting this Saturday, Nov. 17 at 1:30 p.m. at the Stittsville Legion on Stittsville Main Street.

RWC Crusaders are champs in Cornwall Special to the News

EMC sports - Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s now two tournament championships for the Major Peewee Richmond West Carleton (RWC) Crusaders. The team captured the peewee division championship in the Cornwall Minor Hockey Fall Classic on the weekend of Nov. 1-2, going undefeated in five games. This came on the heels of the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tournament championship win in Rochester earlier in the season. On Saturday, Nov. 1, the Crusaders took to the ice twice as the tournament action began. After defeating Alexandria 5-2 in an opening round-robin game, leading all the way. The Crusaders followed up this initial victory with a 4-2 win over the home team Cornwall Colts. The Crusaders vigorous training schedule this season helped the team adapt to the longer games in this tournament. And this training also helped the Crusaders as the team had to play three games on the Sunday to take the championship. Sunday, Nov. 2 started with the Crusaders taking to the ice against the North GlengarryStormont Braves, a game which featured end-to-end action and ended in a 1-1 tie. The point from this tie was enough to give the Crusaders five points in round-robin play, meaning that the team

finished first in the pool. In semi-final action, the Crusaders faced the South Stormont Selects, with the Crusaders prevailing by a close 201 score, securing a place in the peewee final. In this tournament final, which was held just 60 minutes after the semi-final game, the Crusaders faced the Cornwall Colts. Thanks to a hat trick from Josh Arts, the Crusaders emerged with a victory and grabbed the tournament championship. Josh Arts, by the way, received the MVP award in this championship game. The Richmond West Carleton Crusaders Major Peewees still have lots of tournament action to go this season. The Crusaders will be playing in the Pembroke Silver Stick Tournament this coming weekend. The team will also be participating in the Bell Capital Cup at the end of December and in Toronto, the Crusaders will head to Toronto for the Toronto Penguins annual tournament. The team has a number of fundraisers to help offset its tournament costs this season. The teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hockey Momsâ&#x20AC;? are hosting a second annual Ladiesâ&#x20AC;? night at the Richmond Memorial Community Centre on Saturday, Nov. 24. The players are also selling poinsettias for the holiday season.

The Richmond West Carleton Crusaders draws play-

ers from both the Richmond Munster Minor Hockey Asso-

ciation and the West Carleton Minor Hockey Association to

play at this competitive level of hockey.

Dream game for Stittsville’s Cobina Delaney - three assists Special to the News

1115.R0011738842

EMC sports - Cobina Delaney of Stittsville had a dream game with her linemates in the Robert Morris University Colonials 7-1 win over the Penn State Nittany Lions in College Hockey America women’s hockey action last Saturday. The line picked up a total of 12 points in the

game, including five goals for Rebecca Vint of Caledon, four assists for Kelsey Thomas of Hamilton and three assists for Cobina. For Cobina, who is playing her fourth and final year with the Robert Morris University Colonials, it was the first time that she had earned three assists in one game. She moved to having 40 assists in her career at Robert Morris, tying

her for fourth all-time in school history. She also advanced to having 57 points (goals and assists) in her career at Robert Morris, which is seventh all-time in women’s hockey team history. Last Sunday, Cobina improved on these all-time scoring states, picking up a goal and an assist in the Colonials’ 4-1 win over Penn State. This was her first goal of this season.

The assist, the 41st of her career, moved her into a tire for third place all-time in Colonials history. Cobina is a graduate of Sacred Heart Catholic High School in Stittsville where she also played for the girls’ hockey team. Robert Morris University is located in Pittsburgh, PA.

Remembrance at St. Philip School Special to the News

EMC news - St. Philip Catholic School in Richmond marked Remembrance this year with an assembly in the school gym that involved prayer, silence punctuated by the Last Post and Reveille, a video, a dramatization of the poem In Flanders Fields featuring giant poppies, white crosses and student movements, and a vocal performance by the school’s white shirted choir group. The assembly, held last Friday, Nov.

9, also hosted a number of Richmond Legion and Richmond Ladies’ Auxiliary members who received a prolonged round of applause when their presence was marked. Giant hand-made medals outlining military qualities like bravery, sacrifice, love, loyalty and freedom were presented to the Legion and Ladies’ Auxiliary members. Richmond Legion president Brian Goss read an article from a November 1982 issue of The Stittsville News de-

scribing the Remembrance Assembly at St. Philip School that year, 30 years ago. He presented a plaque to the school which bore a copy of this article. The whole student body paid tribute to the Legion and Ladies’ Auxiliary members by singing “May the World Rise Up to Meet You.” The gym was decorated with poppies and white crosses for this assembly. There was a grave marker set up at the front, adding to the sense of Remembrance.

Sledge hockey at GRC - see it and even try it! John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

EMC sports - The National Hockey League (NHL) arenas are in darkness these days due to the lockout of the players by the owners. But there’s still hockey going on, albeit not NHL hockey. And if you want to see hockey that’s different and exciting and yet something that you have probably never seen live before, then consider visiting the new ice pad at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex (GRC) in Stittsville this Sunday, Nov. 18. And you’ll will even have an opportunity to have an onice experience and even meet current and former Team Canada players. What we are talking about is sledge hockey which is a paralympic sport that allows those with a physical disability to play the game of ice

hockey. It’s all happening at the GRC’s new ice surface, one that has been specially built to accommodate sledge hockey with an accessible ice surface and change rooms, this Sunday, Nov. 18, starting at 9:30 a.m. and running through to 2:30 p.m. From 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m., there will be an exhibition sledge hockey game between two minor sledge hockey teams, the Ottawa Valley Lasers and the Gloucester Orleans Blues. After you have seen the game played, you may want to see how it works, using a sledge or sled on the ice. That’s why from 11 a.m. to 12:20 p.m., anyone who wants will be able to try a sledge on the ice, getting an introduction to the sport with the help of Sledge Hockey of Eastern Ontario (SHEO) players. This is also when you will have the

Sea Hawks Special to the News

Players move by using the metal teeth to grip the ice and push themselves forward. Sledge hockey became an official event in the 1994 Paralympic Games in Norway. Generally sledge hockey uses rules similar to those for regular ice hockey. City of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri, who arranged for this sledge

hockey event at the GRC, says that since the new ice pad was built to accommodate sledge hockey, he feels that it is important to highlight the sport there. He feels that being able to experience sledge hockey on the ice will offer an unique experience for the youth and others of the community not only to watch the sport but to

actually feel what it is like to play the sport. Councillor Qadri says that he foresees the time when ice will be specifically allocated for sledge hockey activity, once more ice pads are built by the city. Currently ice allocations are determined on the number of participants involved with an ice-oriented organization.

Meet hosted by Swim Ottawa on Saturday, Oct. 27. Goulbourn Sea Hawks swimmers also participated in the 2012 Spooky Halloween Meet hosted by the Perth Stingrays Aquatic Club on Sunday, Oct. 28. Goulbourn Sea Hawks swimmers also participated in the recent Go Kingfish Fall Invitational 2012 hosted by the Greater Ottawa Kingfish Swim Club at the University of Ottawa pool. Val Hayward is the head coach for the Goulbourn Sea Hawks Swim Club which swims out of the Goulbourn Recreation Complex pool.

EMC news - It was Black vs Gold recently at the Goulbourn Sea Hawks Swim Club. A total of 120 swimmers competed in this fourth annual Black vs Gold Intramural Meet which saw a close finish. The Black team amassed 202 points while the Gold Team had 201 points – it could not get any closer. Goulbourn Sea Hawks swimmers recently participated in the Annual October Invitational

opportunity to meet current and former members of the Team Canada sledge hockey team. This on-ice experience for anyone who wants it will be followed by an Eastern Canada Sledge Hockey League game featuring the Ottawa Valley Falcons hosting Les Demons Roulants de Laval, running from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. This is competitive intermediate-level sledge hockey which is comparable to the Junior B level in ablebodied hockey. Sledge hockey is a team sport involving participants who have a physical disability. That’s why players sit on an ice hockey sledge or sled. The sticks used by sledge hockey players have a blade curved at one end, just like a regular hock stick, but with a number of metal teeth at the opposite end of the blad to help with maneuvering and propulsion.

Remembrance assembly at Stittsville Public School John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - The library at Stittsville Public School is named in honour of Marc Leger, the Canadian soldier who died from a tragic socalled â&#x20AC;&#x153;friendly fireâ&#x20AC;? incident in Afghanistan. And again this year, his parents, Claire and Richard Leger of Stittsville, were at the school to participate in its Remembrance ceremony which was held on Friday, Nov. 9. During the wreath laying segment of the ceremony, Mr. and Mrs. Leger moved to the front of the gymnasium where they received the paper wreaths from representatives of each class and then placed

the wreaths together at the front of the stage area. At the end of the ceremony, Mrs. Leger thanked all of the students and staff at the school for being so generous and allowing she and her husband to participate in the Remembrance ceremony. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re overwhelmed by your generosity,â&#x20AC;? she said, remarking on the quiet and respectful behaviour of the students during the ceremony and also noting the enormous work which must have gone into making all of the class wreaths for the ceremony. Mrs. Leger thanked the students for showing so much respect for Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soldiers in the ceremony, expressing the hope that they will all re-

member Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dead and wounded soldiers throughout the rest of their lives. The walls of the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gymnasium were adorned with paper poppies, both large and small, as well as Remembrance banners and Remembrance-themed artwork featuring such symbols as white crosses and poppies. Some classes made presentations during this Remembrance assembly â&#x20AC;&#x201C;as a song or as a poem like â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Pittance of Timeâ&#x20AC;? or even combined, like reciting â&#x20AC;&#x153;In Flanders Fieldsâ&#x20AC;? while also singing John Lennonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s famous song â&#x20AC;&#x153;Imagine.â&#x20AC;? Silence reigned in the gymnasium during the time between the playing of the Last Post and Reville.

Helping Seje community in Kenya Special to the News

EMC news - The Community Bible Church in Stittsville is continuing to help the community of Seje in Kenya. Several church events have already helped raise both awareness of and funds for this African community and a second annual The Sow Good Sale coming up at the church this Saturday, Nov. 17 will be yet another event in this ongoing, long term commitment and initiative. The ongoing partnership between the Community Bible Church and the community of Seje in Kenya has seen a number of fundraising and awareness-raising events already held at the church. Thanks to the great support for last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s initial The Sow Good Sale, the ďŹ rst permanent school structure in Seje is now fully funded with construction underway. Through the generosity of local supporters, more than 50 four and ďŹ ve year olds in Seje, mainly orphans, have been sponsored and since January have been attending school in a church until the school facility is completed. They are also beneďŹ tting from regular nutrition. More children still need to be spon-

sored. It costs $40 a month to sponsor a child in Seje, providing them with school, nutrition and opportunities which they would not otherwise have. Such child sponsorship qualiďŹ es for charitable tax receipts. Anyone interested in sponsoring a child in Seje should contact the Community Bible Church at 613-836-2606. Additional funds for educational support in Seje were raised at last Marchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Quiz for a Causeâ&#x20AC;? at the Community Bible Church. Last Juneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Walk for Waterâ&#x20AC;? event hosted by the Community Bible Church in Stittsville raised some of the funds required to provide safe clean drinking water for 100 people in Seje. Funding from all of these events has helped improve the daily lives of many in Seje in Kenya. This partnership between the Community Bible Church in Stittsville and the community of Seje in Kenya in Africa came about in 2010 when the Community Bible Church learned about a â&#x20AC;&#x153;You Feed Themâ&#x20AC;? initiative undertaken by the Trinity Bible Church in Osgoode. In this initiative, the Osgoode church partnered

with the village of Yogo in Kenya to help improve crop yields there as well as help in other ways. The Community Bible Church congregation was so inspired by this outreach by the Osgoode church that it ended up partnering with Seje, a village near Yogo. Pastor Steve Stewart and several members of the congregation visited Seje to meet the community elders and villagers there and to learn about their needs, desires and dreams. This led to the partnership between the Community Bible Church and Seje in April 2011. This partnership is a long term initiative in which the Community Bible Church is working with Seje community leaders to help them transform Seje into a self-sustaining and healthy community. The Seje community has contributed funds towards the new local school, has cleared land for community facilities and has dug trenches for installation of a water pipeline. While the Community Bible Church is providing much-needed help, especially funding, the community of Seje is also dedicated to helping itself with help from this Stittsville church.

Book on Muskoka Colonization Road John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the story of the Muskoka Colonization Road that laid the foundation for todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Highway 11. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s told in the pages of the new book â&#x20AC;&#x153;Muskokaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Main Streetâ&#x20AC;? by Richmond author Lee Ann Eckhardt Smith. She and her family have enjoyed the Smith cottage in Muskoka for over 40 years, giving her a familiarity with the area, although she still did a lot of research in writing the book. The Ottawa book launch for this book happened earlier this fall at the Bistro FiftyFour restaurant at Amberwood Village in Stittsville. The book describes the evolution of the Muskoka Road through the eyes of the people who designed, built and travelled it over the past 150 years. The story is ďŹ lled with personalities, perils and, yes, even success. The Muskoka Road was plagued with controversy from its very ďŹ rst days. Its terrible condition was condemned and steamships lured settlers away from the road and into their more comfortable method of travel. However, surveyors like Vernon Wadsworth began

stellar careers by running survey lines for the road through the wilderness. Adventurers like James Bain from Toronto and civil war veterans from the United States clung to the sides of wagons, making their way around tree stumps and over ruts, wanting to escape to new land via this road. From the 1860â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to today, surveyors, settlers and entrepreneurs all walked the Muskoka Road from the tip of Lake Couchiching to the Nipissing district. They ended up changing the area from wilderness to a playground and home for many. This book by Lee Ann Eckhardt Smith provides the tales of optimism and hardship which arose out of the construction of this road. Ms. Eckhardt Smith ďŹ rst got the idea to write about the Muskoka Road when she read an ongoing feature about the colonization roads of Ontario in â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Country Connectionâ&#x20AC;? magazine. She knew a bit about the Muskoka Road since she had cottaged in that area for years. She suggested the idea of an article about the Muskoka Road to the magazineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s editor and it was subsequently published in January 2010. The article led to Patrick Boyer, publisher of Muskoka Books, contacting

Lee Ann Eckhardt Smith Ms. Eckhardt Smith about expanding the article into a book. And so the book project came into being. Research for the book involved time in libraries, archives and simple on the ground investigation. Both the Archives of Ontario and Library and Archives Canada hold government records, surveyor reports and maps about the Muskoka Road. She read memoirs by loggers, pioneers, steamboat entrepreneurs and early travelers. Biographies were also helpful. She spent many days and travelled many miles exploring the remnants of the road. This gave her a sense of the

Art and craft sale at Museum Special to the News

EMC news - Art, jewelry, soap, wool. Even poinsettias and baked goods. It will all be for sale at the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Uniquely Goulbourn Art & Craft Saleâ&#x20AC;? which is happening on Sunday, Dec. 2 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Goulbourn Museum at Stanleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Corners. There will even be hot chocolate served and an outside activity for youngsters, all to make it an even that the whole family can enjoy. Among the vendors will be those specializing in pencil art, copper jewelry and silver jewelry. There will also be glutenfree baked goods for sale along with an array of holiday baking. And letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not forget about recycled wool and soap, both of which will be available. You will also be

able to purchase a poinsettia. And whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s even better, there will be free admission to one and all. One thing that you might want to check out at this upcoming event is the recently published book â&#x20AC;&#x153;Historic Churches of the Ottawa Valleyâ&#x20AC;? by Alan Bentley. This book, which includes information and photos about longtime churches throughout the Ottawa Valley area, does include in its pages articles and photos about a number of Stittsville and Goulbourn churches. Among the churches detailed in this book are Stittsville United Church and St. Thomas Anglican Church, both in Stittsville; Christ Church Ashton and the now-closed Melville Presbyterian Church, both in Ashton; St. Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Presbyterian Church, St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s United

road itself, its evolution and the hardships which its travelers endured. She investigated maps of all kinds and in the end mapped every inch of the Muskoka Road. Telling the story of the surveyors is her favourite part of the book. Before writing the book, she knew little about surveying. But she learned about the methods, the technicalities and the history of surveying in Ontario. She read the handwritten diaries and ďŹ eld notes of the early Muskoka surveyors. Ms. Eckhardt Smith has written short stories and magazine articles besides books. Her workshop series â&#x20AC;&#x153;How To Write Family History and Memoirs Even If Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re Not A Writerâ&#x20AC;? has been offered in both Ottawa and Perth since 2007. Lee Ann Eckhardt Smith wrote â&#x20AC;&#x153;Strength Within: The Granger Chroniclesâ&#x20AC;? telling the story of her motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family in a saga which spans seven generations and over 150 years in time. It tells of the people, places and times that shaped the Granger family during both the 19th and 20th centuries. Ms. Eckhardt Smith feels that she may switch to writing some ďŹ ction as her next project.

Church, St. John the Baptist Anglican Church and St. Philipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Catholic Church, all in Richmond; Munster United Church in Munster; Prospect United Church and St. Augustineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Anglican Church, both in Prospect; and FallowďŹ eld United Church and St. Patrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Catholic Church, both in FallowďŹ eld. Copies of the book will be on sale by the Goulbourn Museum at this â&#x20AC;&#x153;Uniquely Goulbourn Art & Craft Saleâ&#x20AC;? on Sunday, Dec. 2.

Mary Cook’s Memories It was a blue sugar bowl. Much larger than the one we used every day on the kitchen table. Father said it had been in his family as long as he could remember. It wasn’t used for sugar anymore, though. It was where Mother kept her egg money. It had a matching jug too, but it just stood beside the sugar bowl and was never used. I figured the reason Mother used the sugar bowl for her egg money and not the jug was because it had a lid on it. To protect what was inside, sort of. Goodness knows we kids would never dare go into the sugar bowl without permission, although sometimes, if we had tired of looking around the Eaton’s catalogue in an evening of sitting around the kitchen table, Mother would let me take down the

sugar bowl and count her egg money. Mother never heard of egg money when she moved to that back woods farm in Renfrew County after living 18 years in New York. Now, about the egg money. It was Mother’s challenge to keep money in the sugar bowl. That meant that every week she went into Renfrew and peddled her wares door-to-door. Mother added sticky buns, freshly churned butter and homemade soap to her wares. Once she tried selling small braided rugs and hand sewn aprons, but she soon found out the women of Renfrew were just as busy as she was making rugs and aprons. Mother had plans for her egg money. She longed to go back to New York. Not to stay of course, which was always a fear deep in my heart, because she talked about the place so often and I knew how much she missed the life she once led. No, it would be just for a visit, to spend a few days with her friend Rosie and maybe go to an opera again or visit the museums she loved. Yes, she longed for just one trip back to New York and her wish was that one day there would be enough egg money in the blue sugar bowl to go back for a visit. . Never would there be enough money for the trip back to New York. It wasn’t because she would dip into it for something frivolous like silk stockings or a new hat -- the reason was much

simpler than that. It would be because Father would have had to have some of the few coins she had worked so hard to accumulate. Father never had more than a few cents in his overall pockets. So when something wore out, like it often did on the farm or a new piece of harness was needed, inner tubes to replace the well-patched ones on the car or even maybe a new plow point, it was into the egg money Father would go. There would be so much sadness on such a day. I always dreaded being in the kitchen when that happened. Father would come in from the barns, stop just inside the kitchen door and pause as if he was undecided where he was heading. If Mother was busy at the stove or at the wash tub, she would pause for just a moment and a look of sadness would come over her face. Father would slowly walk over to the cupboard and take down the blue bowl and take out a few coins or one or two of the bills, cram them into his pocket and quietly leave the house. Not a word would be spoken. We would hear him leave the yard in the wagon or buggy and I would know he was headed into Renfrew or to Briscoe’s General Store with a few coins from Mother’s egg money to get what was needed to keep the farm going. It was at those times that I would know Mother’s dream of a trip back to her beloved New York was as far away as ever.

EMC lifestyle - Aquaculture is centuries old and is widespread in Asia. Until the 1980s, more than 70 per cent of world supply came from China, Japan, Korea and the Philippines. It’s a relatively new industry to Canada. In Ontario, fish culture goes back to about 1866, but it was only in 1962 that changes to the Game and Fish Act permitted raising of commercial fish for stocking waterways and later for human consumption. Ontario’s initial 16 fish farms have grown to more than 200 today. Buying and storing Farmed fish are of consistent quality and are available all year round. You can buy them at retail outlets, farmers markets or at the farm gate in several forms: whole dressed, fillets or smoked. To prepare for storage, soak in salted water for 30 minutes to remove the natural slippery, protective coating. Tightly wrap and refrigerate for two to three days. To store for up to three months, freeze tightly-wrapped fish at -18 C. Preparing and cooking Cook with mild-flavoured oils (such as butter, hydrogenated shortening, peanut or corn oil) to prevent flavour from transferring to the mild flavour of the fish. To ensure moist and tender fish, probe with a fork while cooking to see that flesh is opaque

and flakes easily. Here’s a brief outline of the chief cooking methods: Pan-Fry: Dip fish pieces in milk, roll in flour. Lightly grease a heavy skillet and brown on both sides. Season with salt and pepper. Bake: Sprinkle with salt and pepper and brush with melted butter or vegetable oil. Bake in well-greased pan for 15 to 20 minutes at 400 F (200 C). Microwave: Season to taste fresh or thawed fish; cover with plastic wrap leaving one corner open for venting. Cook on high for five to six minutes per pound (or four to five minutes per fillet). Let stand three to four minutes before serving. Barbecue: Place seasoned fillet on grill, skin side down. Cook on one side only for about 10 minutes at medium to high heat. Poach: In flat pan, barely cover fish with hot Court Bouillon (see below). Cover and simmer, not boil, for four to six minutes. (Court Bouillon: Combine one litre of water, three tablespoons of lemon juice or one tablespoon of cider vinegar and 1.5 teaspoons of salt. Bring to a boil and cook three minutes before poaching fish.) Broil: Cover with basting oil or Dijon sauce (see below). Broil 10 to 15 centimetres from heat source for about 10 minutes. (Dijon sauce: Mix one part Dijon mustard with three parts mayonnaise. Season with lemon pepper and fresh dill. Spread evenly over fillets for broiling, baking or barbecuing.)

Stittsville Royals lose to late overtime goal John Curry

john.curry@metroland.com

EMC sports - A goal with only 22 seconds to go in the overtime period sank the Stittsville Royals in Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League action at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex in Stittsville last Sunday afternoon. This overtime loss negated an awesome third period by the Royals in which the team scored four goals to tie up the game 5-5 and force the overtime session. It was a goal by Jake Oliver with only 2:39 left on the clock in the third period that pulled the Royals even with the visiting Gatineau Mustangs. The Mustangs had led 1-0 after the first period and held a 3-1 lead after two periods, setting up the goal-filled third period which ended in a 5-5

tie. The overtime goal with only seconds to go gave the Mustangs a 6-5 victory. The Royals outshot the Mustangs in the game, directing 32 shots at the Gatineau goal. The Mustangs had 28 shots on the Royalsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; goal. Goal scorers for the Royals in this game were Alex Hulford with two and Jordan Bosley, Joey House and Jake Oliver, all with one marker. Kevin Groulx had a hat trick of assists in the game, ending up with three on the afternoon. Other Royals who picked up assists in this game were Steve Genier, Kyle Drisdelle, Jake Oliver, Dylan Scott and Ryan Dube. This 6-5 loss to Gatineau Mustangs was the second loss of the weekend for the Stittsville Royals. Last Friday in Perth, the Royals lost 6-4 to the home-

town Blue Wings despite directing a whopping 54 shots at the Perth goal during the game. The Royals led 1-0 after the first period of this game but Perth rallied to take a 4-2 lead after two periods. The Royals scored just 50 seconds into the third period on a power plan to make the score 4-3 but the Royals could never get any closer than one goal down. The Royals scored with only 1:43 left in the game to close the gap to 5-4 for Perth but with the Royalsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; goalie pulled, Perth scored a sixth and final goal into the empty net to end up winning by a 6-4 margin. Scoring for the Royals in this game were Jordan Bosley, Alex Hulford, Kevin Groulx and Michael Di Bello. Ryan Bochert and Kyle Drisdelle both earned two

assists in the game. Single assists for the Royals went to Michael Kalyn and Kevin Groulx.

The Stittsville Royalsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; net home game at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex on Shea Road in Stittsville is this com-

ing Sunday, Nov. 18 at 2:30 p.m. when the Royals will host the visiting Shawville Pontiacs.

EMC news - The Stittsville Main Street Community Design Plan process which is now underway is the result of city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri working with city of Ottawa planning staff to ensure that development along Stittsville Main Street in the future retains the community feel of Stittsville. The Community Design Plan that will arise from this process will provide a 20 year vision and guidance for development along Stittsville Main Street. This initial visioning workshop is a key component of the public input in the process. It was back in Nov. 2010 that councillor Qadri brought a motion to Ottawa city council asking for a work plan to develop a Community Design Plan for Stittsville Main Street.

This request was as a result of a city approval for a ďŹ ve storey mixed residential/commercial building and related townhomes at a site on Stittsville Main Street. Councillor Qadri and some residents had argued that the scale of this development was inappropriate for the community. Stittsville Main Street is designated as a Traditional Mainstreet in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OfďŹ cial Plan, making it a site for intensiďŹ cation of development, creating a compact, mixed use and walkable environment supporting transit, cycling and walking. However, Stittsville Main Street is also covered by Policy 13 which relates to the Master Plan and Urban Design Guidelines of the former Township of Goulbourn. The relationship of this Policy 13, which requires any new construction on Stittsville Main Street to be evaluated in terms R0011742802

ment pattern that the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OfďŹ cial Plan policies tries to encourage. This Community Design Plan for Stittsville Main Street is being undertaken by the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s planning and growth management staff in collaboration with a public advisory committee comprised of community organizations, landowners, businesses and other interested parties. Following the recent Nov. 1 public workshop and the ensuing vision creation, a public open house presenting this vision and the existing conditions that prevail along Stittsville Main Street will be held in the ďŹ rst quarter of 2013. A draft Community Design Plan document will be produced in the second quarter of 2013. In the third quarter of 2013, a community open house will be held to present the ďŹ nal Community Design Plan and to receive comments from the public. It is envisioned that the Community Design Plan will go to Ottawa city council for approval in the ďŹ rst quarter of 2014. 1115 R0011745819

Community Design Plan

of the existing character of buildings along Stittsville Main Street, to the direction of the Traditional Mainstreet designation for Stittsville Main Street in the ofďŹ cial Plan has created some ambiguity with respect to how the former Goulbourn planning documents are to be interpreted today. The Community Design Plan for Stittsville Main Street will try to solve this apparent ambiguity and conďŹ&#x201A;ict. TrafďŹ c on Stittsville Main Street is also a consideration as the street is meant to continue to function as a primary north/south route in the community. This means that Stittsville Main Street development must be of a type that will encourage a compact mixed use and walkable environment rather than the autooriented, low-rise pattern of development which has prevailed to this point. Stittsville Main Street must evolve as an accessible service hub for the surrounding community rather than its current limited function as a conduit for trafďŹ c movement.
