EMC news - It’s lighting up a Christmas tree but really it’s lighting up your true Christmas spirit. That’s what will happen at the second annual tree lighting ceremony at Sacred Heart Catholic High School in Stittsville on Thursday, Nov. 29. Everyone in the community is invited to attend this tree lighting ceremony which is being hosted by the school’s student council. People are welcome to start arriving at 6 p.m. for the ceremony which will be held in the atrium at the school. Those planning to attend are urged to take along a canned food item for donation to the Stittsville Food Bank. Donations will also be collected for the CHEO Foundation and for the Ottawa Mission. The ceremony itself, which will include a blessing, will get underway at 6:30 p.m. It will include a perfor-

mance by the school choir along with the school’s string quartet. And things will not end with the lighting of the tree at this community event in celebration of the Christmas season. After the ceremony, there will be a number of activity tables which youngsters can enjoy. These will include cookie decorating, Christmas colouring, writing letters to Santa and more. In addition, hot chocolate and hot apple cider will be served. This tree lighting ceremony on Thursday, Nov. 29 follows on the most successful inaugural event on Thursday, Dec. 1 last year which attracted over 200 parents, families, guests and students. Last year’s tree lighting ceremony led off with a parade of lights with students carrying candles to the foot of a stable which would later be the focus of a nativity scene. The singing of “Silent Night,” that most iconic of Christ-

mas hymns, began the ceremony. At last year’s ceremony, a tall tree in the three-storey atrium was lit in a threefold ceremony – the bottom third, the middle third and then the top third, ending with a tree that was a glow of lights. Christmas hymns such as “O Come All Yet Faithful,” “O Come Let Us Adore Him, Christ the Lord” and “Joy to the World” were sung, filling the atrium not only with their music but with the spirit of Christmas. Launching this family Christmas tree lighting ceremony last year was the initiative of both students and staff at Sacred Heart as it was a joint idea of both the student council and its teacher advisors. Everyone is invited to attend this year’s Christmas tree lighting ceremony in the atrium at Sacred Heart Catholic High School on Thursday, Nov. 29, starting at 6 p.m. with the ceremony itself taking place at 6:30 p.m. All ages are most welcome.

EMC news - Santa is coming to Stittsville this Saturday, Nov. 24. He will be a star attraction in the annual Parade of Lights which will make its way along Stittsville Main Street beginning at 6:30 p.m. But Santa won’t be the only attraction as the Parade of Lights this year promises to be the biggest and best yet, with over 40 floats already registered and more expected. This already exceeds last year’s number of floats. Stittsville’s firefighters are looking after all of the arrangements for Santa’s participation in the parade. So watch for him in the parade – he will be there, just like he has been in every Parade of Lights. He wouldn’t miss it and hopefully no Stittsville residents will either. Members of the Stittsville District Lions Club will be moving along the parade route collecting both cash and non-perishable food items for the Stittsville Food Bank. Onlookers are urged to be generous so that the Food Bank has all of the resources that it needs to help the less fortunate at Christmas time. This year’s Parade of Lights will be led by three grand marshals: Marion Gullock, Stittsville’s Senior Citizen of the Year; Helene Rivest, Stittsville’s Citizen of the Year; and Rachel Shavrnoch, Stittsville’s Youth Citizen of the Year. The parade will begin at 6:30 p.m. from the Carleton Board Depot across from Brown’s Your Independent Grocer and will head south, through the Carp Road/Stittsville Main Street intersection and along Stittsville Main Street. At the Stittsville Main Street/Abbott Street intersection at Village Square Park, a public address announcer will identify the various floats as they pass by. The parade will continue south to Carleton Cathcart Street (where St. Thomas Anglican Church is located) where the parade will end. Traffic will be blocked from entering Stittsville Main Street from side streets and adjacent parking lots while the parade is taking place. Motorists should take note of this and use alternative routes if on the road at the time of the parade. Immediately following the parade, there will be a ceremony at Village Square Park at which the Christmas lights on the trees at the park will be turned on to mark the beginning of the Christmas season in Stittsville. Hot chocolate will be served.

EMC news - Two Goulbourn area singers will be among the ten performing at the Ottawa Idol’s Christmas concert on Sunday, Dec. 16 at the Villa Lucia Supper Club at 3430 Carling Avenue in Ottawa. These Ottawa Idol singers will be backed up by a seven piece band. Among the singers will be 19 year old Jennifer Lauren of Stittsville as well as 16 year old Ally Maheral of Munster. Ally was the 2012 Idol winner. Proceeds from this dinner/concert will go to support the Ottawa Idol music programs for local young singing talent. For the past nine years, this has been known as the Kiwanis Idol but the name has now been changed to Ottawa Idol to be a more inclusive name for the whole area. Tickets for the concert are $40 each which includes both the dinner and the show. The dinner happens at 6 p.m. while the show will run from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Tickets are available by calling Villa Lucia at 613-596-1346 or Eldon Fox at 613-8319900 or via email at . There will also be a silent auction held in conjunction with this dinner/concert.

about getting into the Christmas spirit! And make sure that you take a look at the pre-made mesh wreaths which the shop is now selling. This is the ďŹ rst year that these mesh wreaths are being sold. Previously the shop sold mesh bows that were great to place on top of a Christmas tree or even outside a home. This year the bows continue to be available but now owner Chantelle Turcotte, who makes them, has expanded into these mesh wreaths. There are different colours and even ones featuring a more premier type of mesh. Why not be the ďŹ rst among your family and friends to have one of these eye-catching wreaths? A selection is hanging up there in the shop. And they can be made and provided within 24 hours if the colour that you want has already been sold. It’s something unique and different. Casual Elegance owner Chantelle Turcotte admits that this annual Christmas Open House is always the shop’s busiest weekend of the year. For the event, the shop is totally transformed into a Christmas spectacular and although this requires a lot of work, Chantelle says that she loves doing it. It’s well worth the time and effort to just drop in and browse around the shop for this event. Even if you were to leave with no purchases, you will deďŹ nitely be leaving with a lot of Christmas spirit and that’s something that will make your upcoming December a wonderful time. This tenth annual Christmas Open House will take place at Casual Elegance Fine Gifts this Saturday, Nov. 24 and this Sunday, Nov. 25. Casual Elegance Fine Gifts is located at the Shops of Main Street plaza (where Tim Hortons is located) on Stittsville Main Street at Carp Road in Stittsville.

New King’s YIG is also King’s WOW John Curry

EMC news - Get ready for a WOW experience with the opening of the new King’s Your Independent Grocer (YIG) in Richmond. Slated to open at 8 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 30 in its new 27,000 square foot premises in the newly developed shopping area at the corner of Perth Street and Shea Road at the eastern gateway to Richmond, this new King’s YIG offers not only a visual rainbow of colours and signage (a first WOW) but also all brand new fixtures, shelving, refrigerated units and equipment, wall to wall (a second WOW). But there’s more! You will be WOW’d with the vast, wide open area for fresh fruits and vegetables which greets the shopper entering the store – a area triple in size to what exists in the current King’s valu-mart at the Richmond Plaza and a space almost half of the store’s total floor area. “Our fresh offering is insane,” Chris King of King’s YIG says about the fresh selection that will be in the new store. And if this were not enough to get your WOW meter soaring, there’s the larger grocery section that will have eight aisles (the present valu-mart store has five and a half aisles) and in these aisles, you will find more selection, both in variety and in sizes. There’s now the space to do this. In addition, you will be amazed (another WOW) at the prices thanks to the switch to the Your Independent Grocer banner. You will find everyday prices on the shelf more competitive with more specials than was possible under the valu-mart banner. And from the moment you enter the store, you encounter a salad bar, a sandwich area, a bakery, a deli, dips and cheeses galore, offerings not only of meat but also seafood, and on it goes – more types of pizza, more bread choice – just more of virtually everything. WOW! And all of these sections – such as Dairy Products, Butcher Shop, From the Oven, Produce, Frozen Favourites, Delicatessen, and Health and Beauty – are colourfully and boldly identified. Each sec-

tion has its own colour which is why a rainbow of colour pervades the store – yellow, green, red, blue, brown and white. This is sure to evoke a WOW or two from you. “We’ve got all the bells and whistles,” owner Chris King says about the new store. He points out that the store’s bakery will now be able to handle special requests. No longer will be birthday cake just consist of writing “Happy Birthday” on it in frosting. Now specially made cakes will be available thanks to his full-time baker. He calls this a “very exciting” aspect of the new store. WOW! There is no pharmacy in the store but there is an extensive, expanded “Health and Beauty” aisle. There also is no coffee bar in the new store, a popular feature in the current valumart. But there is the new Tim Hortons right near the store in this new shopping area, complete with drive-thru, so the lack of a coffee bar should not be missed. Indeed, the new store will have a soup counter, a new offering. The new King’s YIG will be selling Christmas trees this year, something that was never done at the existing valumart store. In addition, in the spring, the garden centre will be larger – get those green thumbs ready! There’s lot of parking at the new King’s YIG, including several designated handicapped spots, and there will be shopping carts galore, with 150 carts, all brand new, up from the 55 used at the existing valu-mart. The cashier checkouts at the new King’s YIG will be staffed with many of the friendly, knowledgeable cashiers that have served customers for years at the valumart. In addition, they will now have phone pagers in order to be able to contact a store department quickly to confirm a price. And what’s even better, all groceries will continue to be bagged by YIG staff. But despite all the WOW’s and larger size, owner Chris King is emphatic that the store, through its décor, its layout and its staff, will continue to provide the “small town feel” that customers have come to expect and enjoy at the existing valu-mart.


The new King’s Your Independent Grocer will be opening in these brand-new 27,000 square foot premises, with 19,000 square foot of sales area, almost double the 10,000 square feet of sales area in the existing King’s valu-mart at the Richmond Plaza, on Friday, Nov. 30 at 8 a.m. The new premises are located in the new shopping area at the corner of Perth Street and Shea Road in Richmond. He says that features in the new store such as the vastly bigger fresh section, the salad bar and the décor with its bright colours is not only an attempt to get back to an emphasis on fresh produce and groceries but also is an effort to have an “inviting” and homey store that fits with the community. “People can call this store theirs,” Mr. King said, noting that the staff, many of whom have served customers for years at the valu-mart, will be continuing to offer fast and friendly service. He, though, has hired more staff, virtually doubling the number, because of the larger store and just more product to handle but also because of the enhanced emphasis on fresh products, a more labour intensive situation. As Mr. King explains it, staff provides the “TLC” that ensures the very freshest product is on sale at all times. No product will be transferred from the valu-mart when it closes to the new store. All product in the new store is brand new, just like all of the store’s fixtures and equipment. As of this coming Monday, Nov. 26, Mr. King will be offering 25 percent off on purchases at the existing valumart store in an effort to reduce the inventory there and to thank customers for their support and patronage. Any inventory left over when the valu-mart store at the Richmond Plaza closes for good late Wednesday, Nov. 28, or

early Thursday, Nov. 29 will be taken to another store, with any leftover fresh produce hopefully to go to the Food Bank. Thursday, Nov. 29 will be the day when Mr. King and his staff get the new King’s YIG all set to go, with the opening slated for Friday, Nov. 30 at 8

a.m. Friday, Nov. 30 will see the first 500 customers receive President’s Choice gift bags including a bag of President’s Choice decadent cookies. There will also be a two-piece band on hand and balloon artists will be there, forming balloons into various creative

forms. Cake and coffee will be served. Radio station Hot 89.9 will be on site with a remote broadcast on Saturday, Dec. 1. King’s YIG will be open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day of the week. The current valu-mart has been closing at 9 p.m.


Chris King is experiencing exciting times these days as he supervises the relocation of his business from the Richmond Plaza, where he has operated under the valu-mart banner, to his new premises in the new shopping area at the corner of Perth Street and Shea Road in Richmond where he will be operating in brand-new surroundings under the Your Independent Grocer banner. The new store opens on Friday, Nov. 30 at 8 a.m.

Seeing Berlin and Paris without leaving library John Curry

lisk. This square stands at the spot where the guillotine was erected to behead those like Marie Antoinette during the French Revolution. And no visit, via photos or otherwise, would be complete without a photo of the Eiffel Tower, once one of the world’s tallest structures. “The symbol of Paris is the Eiffel Tower, no doubt about it,” Mr. Lemke said. His photo tour of Paris also include scenes of the Elysee Palace, official residence of the French president, as well as the Seine River, an opera house and downtown attractions like city hall and the church where Napoleon’s tomb is now housed. “What impressive buildings in Paris – unbelievable,” Mr. Lemke exclaimed. He showed the Luxembourg Gardens which surrounds the Luxembourg Palace which now houses the French Senate and a museum of fine arts. “It’s known as the peaceful haven in the heart of Paris,” Mr. Lemke said about the Luxembourg Gardens. And no visit to Paris could be complete R0011294477

EMC news - A public library can take you to so many places through the pages of its books. It’s a travel agency for the mind. But on Wednesday, Nov. 14, the Stittsville branch of the Ottawa Public Library also became a visual vehicle for travel as travel raconteur Gurt Lemke of Kanata gave a slide presentation in the meeting room showing scenes from two of the world’s great capital cities, Berlin and Paris. The photos, accompanied by Mr. Lemke’s commentary, were taken during a 2009 trip to these cities. His presentation began with photos showing Berlin which since 1995 has been the capital of the unified German state. He described Berlin of today as a “vibrant,” “clean” and “sophisticated” city, praising its ornate rococo and grand baroque architecture, noting that even buildings rebuilt after the Second World War are identical to their former appearance. But Mr. Lemke also pointed out that there is also ultra modern architecture in Berlin, built since the fall of the Berlin wall in 1989. He was particularly effusive about the wide boulevards which can be found in downtown Berlin – a central area for pedestrians and cyclists, flanked by two lanes of traffic on each side, each of which has an associated parking lane, beyond which is another wide sidewalk. “Absolutely phenomenal,” he said. Among the scenes of Berlin that he showed was a photo of the Brandenburg Gate which he called the “quintessential symbol of Berlin” today. His photographic tour of Berlin also included photos of the current Parliament building with its new glass dome which allows people to look down into the parliamentary cham-

ber, of a section of the Berlin wall that still exists, of the Checkpoint Charlie guard booth which at one time was the only access point through the Berlin wall to then-East Germany; and of the downtown Berlin opera house. Mr. Lemke told how people in Berlin as well as in Europe in general seem to be fascinated by anything to do with North American native culture and also with polar bears. He also showed photos taken in Potsdam which is a former resort town for the wealthy and former German royalty which lies about 20 kilometers outside Berlin. One of its features is the “Hunters’ Gate” which is one of six city gates which used to allow access to Potsdam. He showed photos of a number of German palaces which were built by the German Kaiser and other royalty. One of these palaces in Potsdam was where wartime leaders Winston Churchill, Harry Truman and Joseph Stalin met at the end of the Second World War to determine what would be the future of Germany in the postwar period. The second part of Mr. Lemke’s photo presentation dealt with Paris, the capital of France. “If I had to sum up Paris, I would call it the city of culture,” he said in introducing his photo tour of the city. He noted the city’s architecture, its artists’ community and the presence of the Sorbonne, a university which dates back centuries. He explained about the Champs Elysees, Paris’ wide avenue that is perhaps the most famous street in the world. He showed a photo of the Arc de Triomphe, located at the western end of the Champs Elysees which honours those killed in the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars. At the other end of the Champs Elysees is the Place de la Concorde featuring a tall obe-

without note of the Louvre, the world famous art gallery housed in a former Royal palace. A person could spend a week at the Louvre and still not see everything, Mr. Lemke said. Other Paris features shown by Mr. Lemke included the Bastille opera house, located on the spot where the Bastille prison used to be, and Notre Dame Cathedral, built on the site of a Roman temple. But Paris is more than just historic buildings. Mr. Lemke showed an area of Paris where there are ultra modern office buildings, an area that apparently is the largest collection of tall modern buildings in Europe today. He called the architecture at this area “phenomenal” with every structure different. Mr. Lemke also showed photos of the Palace at Versailles which he said took 36,000 workers 50 years to build. He said that in viewing Versailles, the one thought that entered his mind was “excess” as he called it almost decadent in its luxury. He expressed the thought that the excess as demonstrated by Versailles was perhaps the genesis of the French Revolution.

THE CANADIAN CANCER SOCIETY PROVIDES THE WHEELS OF HOPE TO HELP CANCER PATIENTS GET TO THEIR TREATMENTS. For many, Wheels of hope is a life line. It can be the difference between getting to cancer treatment or not.

Canadian Cancer Society volunteer drivers help people like Chelsie fight back against cancer. In Ottawa alone last year, Society volunteers drove a total of 90, 781 km to ensure that people got to their radiation and chemotherapy treatments. The program is free for cancer patients and is especially vital for people without the financial means or nearby friends and family to help make the often daily trips to their appointments.

Chelsie and her son Damon


Single mom Chelsie Geib knows all too well how difficult it can be to manage a family and make it to sometimes daily appointments; “Do you know what is worse than being diagnosed with cancer? Not being able to get to the appointments you need to save your life. When I had lost all hope my final call was to the Canadian Cancer Society, who informed me of their free service that helps people like me get to the hospital for appointments. Knowing I could turn to the Society felt like a heavy weight had been lifted off my shoulders. I really could fight this disease – and win.”

This application is consistent with the approved zoning of the property and with discussions with the surrounding community that led to this application to create for separate parcels of land for the site…


Lands subject to the proposal: The proposed zoning amendment affects Ward 6 - Stittsville.

Terrain(s) visé(s) par la proposition : La présente proposition de modification du Règlement de zonage vise Quartier 6 - Stittsville.

Purpose and effect of the proposed amendment: This is a proposal to extend the temporary zoning requirement to provide two parking spaces, which may be provided in tandem, for detached, semi-detached, and multiple attached dwellings in R1, R2, R3, R4 and R5 zones in Stittsville where the required front yard setback or corner side yard setback is 3 m or less.

Objet et effet de la modification proposée : Il s’agit d’une demande de prolongement de l’exigence de zonage temporaire visant à fournir deux places de stationnement, qui peuvent être aménagées en tandem, destinées aux habitations unifamiliales, jumelées et multifamiliales contiguës dans les zones R1, R2, R3, R4 et R5 à Stittsville, alors que le retrait requis de cour avant ou de cour latérale d’angle est limité à 3 m ou moins.

This temporary zoning requirement was originally introduced as a means to address parking pressures in residential neighbourhoods in Stittsville, until such a time as the issue can be addressed more comprehensively through a broad review of suburban subdivision development standards. Given that this review is ongoing, it is proposed to extend the temporary provision until December 31, 2013.

Cette exigence de zonage temporaire fut à l’origine mise en place en vue de résoudre les pressions de stationnement dans les quartiers résidentiels de Stittsville, jusqu’à ce que ce problème puisse être résolu sous tous ses aspects dans le cadre d’un examen global des normes d’aménagement des lotissements suburbains. Cet examen étant en cours, il est proposé de prolonger la validité de cette disposition temporaire jusqu’au 31 décembre 2013.

Taking green bin recycling to new heights


he city should be applauded for moving ahead with a plan to deliver the full spectrum of recycling possibilities to apartment dwellers. A plan approved by a city committee last week would see all types of recycling services â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including green bins â&#x20AC;&#x201C; available to people living in new multi-residential buildings. Garbage isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a sexy topic, but it is an expensive one.

If residents of this city donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t divert trash from the Trail Road landfill into coloured recycling bins, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll fill up the dump and be forced to send our waste further afield. The cost will be enormous â&#x20AC;&#x201C; just as the cost of building a new landfill would be enormous â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best to delay that outcome, and recycling is the solution the city is backing. In 2010, 53,349 tonnes of organic waste were collected from Ottawa homes; in

2011, that number rose only slightly to 55,063. A few people who live in apartments have been part of a pilot project to see how green bins might work for all multi-residential buildings. There are challenges presented by multi-unit residences, because places such as apartment complexes rarely have space to store green bins. The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan under review would require landlords to construct waste handling

systems for future buildings. The cost of adding recycling space during the construction of a new building is minimal when compared to retrofitting. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a small price to pay and the sooner new buildings come with recycling space, the more waste can be diverted from the landfill. Given that the city is encouraging intensified development, we can expect to see more people in apartments in the future. Making sure all

those apartment dwellers can sort and store recyclables is critical. There will be challenges, and some were discussed at a recent meeting of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s planning committee. If bins are not located near apartment entrances, people with mobility issues will have a hard time participating. Councillors are understandably worried about putting in place a policy that may leave residents on the outside looking in.

Hopefully this will be the first step towards adapting the green bin program to work at existing multiunit residential properties, which would allow organic waste diversion to become even more widespread. It is entirely conceivable that solutions implemented at new buildings could be retrofitted to work at existing structures. But until that time the city is taking the appropriate steps to ensure that even if some people canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t or wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do their part and recycle, Ottawa is moving in the right direction on the waste management file.


Awaiting the pre-population explosion The first 20 minutes on Heron Road were spent wondering why nobody was moving, especially me. The next three minutes were spent wondering why nobody bothered to put up a CONSTRUCTION sign until we were almost at the construction and the two minutes after that were spent wondering why somebody couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have let us all know 25 minutes ago the left lane was the one that was going to end. All the information available in the world, all the ultra-modern means of transmitting it and we sit there on Heron Road, motionless and clueless. Surely this information could have been pre-populated somewhere. The radio didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have anything and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s against the law to fiddle with your phone to find out. A caveman sitting where Heron Road is now would have had just as much information as we did. All of which leads to a profound conclusion: We have all kinds of information available to us, more than ever before. Your phone probably has more information in it than all the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s libraries in 1912, for all I know. So yes, we have all kinds of information available to us. We just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the right kind. Some day soon all this will be fixed. We will have the equivalent of smartphones implanted in us, perhaps. They will tell us which lane to be in, which roads to avoid, when the snowplow is coming, which parking lots are not full, which stores still have the toy we wanted to buy for Christmas. We will be pre-populated like crazy. But will this make us happy? Probably not. We will be distracted by too much information, confused over having too many choices. You can see it happening now and it can only get worse. It is possible that we will long for the good old days when there was only one thing at a time we needed to now and we knew how to find it. Strange as it may seem, we may one day look nostalgically back on being stuck in traffic, on Heron Road, blissful in our ignorance on the way to the Idiot Drivers Hall of Fame.



went to fill out one of those online forms the other day and when I got to about the second page of it, I found out that it had been pre-populated. Yes. There was a note there saying that as a convenience to me, parts of the form had been pre-populated. The room, all of a sudden, felt crowded. But what it meant was that parts of the form had already been filled in with information that the website already knew about me. That wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t very much, as it turned out, just my name and not even my phone number. You can imagine, however, how alarming it would be to be subject to more extensive pre-population. This, in a way, is what all the concern about online privacy is about. People put stuff about themselves up there and it hangs around and hangs around. There are probably a lot more people than you think who know where you live, your telephone number and email address. And there are others who know things about your buying habits. If you are worried about your personal pre-population exceeding that, you have to be careful. For example, I would never tell put it online that the other day I decided to use Baseline and Heron as a quicker way to get from west to east. Nobody does that, right? Well, the Queensway looked really slow, so I made one of those instant decisions that took me right to the Idiot Drivers Hall of Fame. Mind you, it took quite a while to get there. There were all the stoplights, and then the 25 minutes it took to get from Heron Road Bridge to Riverside.

In 2011, for example, three major storms hit Ottawa in the spring and summer, causing widespread outages. We worked long hours in challenging conditions to get the power back on as soon as possible. To improve reliability, we invested about $50 million to enhance our existing power grid in 2011. Our plan is to maintain or exceed this level of spending over the next five years. We have a rigorous maintenance program, we replace aging assets, and we are adopting new, smart grid technologies including automated controls and sensors that can help to prevent or quickly identify outages.

Power outages can and do occur, however, for a variety of reasons. Storms, tree contacts, a loss of supply from the provincial grid, and equipment failure can all cause outages. Most of these causes are beyond our control at Hydro Ottawa.

Also available is an Online Power Outage Map at Updated every 15 minutes, the map displays the location of outages, the estimated number of customers affected, the cause of the outage, and the estimated time of restoration, once known. We all depend on a reliable supply of power at home and work. At Hydro Ottawa, we are focused on preventing power outages and restoring power as quickly as possible when outages occur.

Olympic figure skater Elizabeth Manley on ice at Richmond arena Special to the News

EMC sports - The ice surface at the Richmond Memorial Community Centre arena was home to royalty last Saturday afternoon, No. 17. It was not British royalty but rather sports royalty in the form of an ice skating queen, namely renowned Canadian figure skater Elizabeth Manley. She was at the arena to pro-

vide some on-ice instruction to members of the Goulbourn Skating Club while also signing autographs and chatting with onlookers and skaters alike. Elizabeth is friends with some of the Goulbourn Skating Club coaches who also coach in Gloucester. During her visit to Richmond last Saturday, she said that she believes that the last time that

she was at the Richmond arena was in 1980. Elizabeth Manley is best known for her spectacular performance in the 1988 Olympics in Calgary where she was not considered to be a contender, let alone medal hopeful. After solid performances in both the compulsory figures and the short program, she was in third place behind East

German skater Katarina Witt and American skater Debi Thomas going into the long program. Elizabeth ended up giving the performance of her life, winning the long program and almost upsetting Witt for the Olympic title as she won the silver medal. Her amazing performance made her a national celebrity in Canada. After the Olympics, she

retired from amateur skating and turned professional, competing in numerous ice shows, television specials and professional events over the years. She now works as a figure skating coach and occasional media commentator while also serving as an inspirational speaker dealing with motivation, health awareness, mental illness, depression, surviving loss and living with

loved ones suffering from Alzheimer’s. She currently lives in Orleans. She has become a spokesperson for mental health issues due to her own battle with depression during her skating career. She has also spoken about ovarian cancer from which her mother died in 2008 and about Alzheimer’s disease from which her father died in 2010.

Dairy relates wartime activities of nursing sister John Curry

EMC news - It offered a different view of World War One. Not only because it dealt with the wartime activities of a nursing sister but also because much of the story was derived from the pages of a diary that covered 20 months of these activities. That’s why the presentation by Deborah Brummell of Stittsville about her great, great aunt Emeline Robinson, a First World War nursing sister, at last Saturday’s November meeting of the Goulbourn Township Historical Society at the Stittsville Legion Hall engaged the audience and generated a bevy of questions and wartime stories in its wake. Delving into the wartime story of her great, great aunt began for Deborah Brummell, a Stittsville native, when she took a nursing history class during her nursing studies. This led her eventually to a diary which Emeline Robinson had kept during a key period of her wartime service which in turn led her to prepare a more formal document which

she presented at a Winnipeg gathering a couple of years ago. Emeline Robinson, she told those at the Historical Society meeting, became a member of the Queen Alexandra Imperial Military Nursing Sister Reserve, answering a call in 1916 from the British government that went out to all nurses including those in the so-called “colonies” such as Canada. Ms. Brummell explained that many of the short, brief entries in the diary deal with her great, great aunt’s activities on her days off and about friends and very little writing is about the war itself or her experiences working with wounded soldiers. Such comments were few and usually brief such as “Hard work day,” and “Vimy was taken today.” She did, though, give her impressions of English personnel and actions which were not generally positive. She deplored how trained nursing sisters like herself had to work with untrained workers such as Voluntary Aide Detachments (VAD) and Orderlies. “VAD no good!” was one

succinct comment found in the dairy. Emeline Robinson was working in a hospital in France in Nov. 1916. In June 1917, she was assigned to the ambulance train. In Oct. 1917, she was back at a hospital in England. The diary itself ends abruptly in early 1918 with the entry “On duty today” even though there were still more pages available for entries. Ms. Brummell admitted that so far she has no clue why Emeline stopped writing in the diary. Ms. Brummell noted that her great, great aunt at times seemed to “fib” a little as on some documents she identifies herself as being from three years to ten years younger than she actually was. Ms. Brummell said that she has transcribed the diary and hopes to publish it. Following the war, Emeline Robinson ended up in Edmonton where she worked as a nurse. In her presentation, Ms. Brummell used a screen on which she projected pictures showing Emeline Robinson, both in her nursing uniform

and later in life with family, as well as documents and a diary page.

Ms. Brummell’s presentation was also augmented by displays of newspaper clip-

pings and wartime memorabilia related to the role of women in wartime.

Villagefest may have enlarged dog theme John Curry

EMC news - Villagefest may be going to the dogs – literally. The annual September community event organized by the Stittsville Village Association (SVA) is going to be re-focused after this year’s mediocre turnout. It might just end up with more emphasis on

dogs, building on this year’s successful dog show. SVA president Marilyn Jenkins suggested this enlarged dog theme when she brought up the future of Villagefest at the last SVA executive meeting, saying that this is one possibility for a revamped Villagefest. This increased focus on dogs might include adding dog agility trials and other

dog-related events to the Villagefest agenda while also offering less entertainment. SVA director Christine Hartig, who judged this year’s first-ever dog show at Villagefest, suggested that the revamped Villagefest might be called “Dog Day Afternoon.” President Jenkins admitted that while the weather was great for this year’s Villagefest activities at Village Square

Park on Saturday, Sept. 29, the turnout of residents was only “so so.” She said that a review of Villagefest revealed that Villagefest has to change. “We need to come up with something different,” she said, noting that a lot of time and energy and sponsorship goes into the event. “We just didn’t have that many people,” she said about this year’s Villagefest.

One thing that has been decided is that Villagefest will in the future happen on the weekend after the Labour Day weekend. This will become the firm date for the event. In recent years, the date for Villagefest has moved around in September and early October as the SVA has tried to avoid conflict with other major events like the Richmond and Carp Fairs.

All of the other community events staged by the SVA have permanent dates on the calendar and now Villagefest will have one as well. Other community events hosted by the SVA include the Canada Day celebrations on Canada Day, the Parade of Lights on the last Saturday in November and Art and Authors in the Park on the last Sunday in May.

Currently, customers can only make their casual bookings one day in advance. The goal of the stakeholder consultation sessions is to ensure that the experience, opinions and recommendations of Para Transpo customers are understood and considered during the vehicle procurement process and the review of the booking process.

In race for Liberal leadership Halloween for Anderson Derek Dunn

EMC news - Karen McCrimmon, who ran for the Liberals in the Carleton-Mississippi Mills riding in the last federal election, is running for the party’s leadership. She has entered the federal Liberal leadership campaign with the campaign slogan “Karen for Canada,” focusing on how a leader must work with a team to realize Canada’s full potential. The convention to select the new federal Liberal leader will be held in April, 2013. In the last federal election in

2011, Ms. McCrimmon lost to sitting Carleton-Mississippi Mills MP Gordon O’Connor, capturing 24 percent of the vote to Mr. O’Connor’s 57 percent. A retired Lieutenant Colonel, she served in the Gulf War, the Balkans, Afghanistan and at NATO headquarters in Germany. As commanding officer of 429 Squadron which flew tactical transport C130 Hercules, she and her crews carried out humanitarian and military operations around the globe. A resident of Constance Bay, she received the Order of Military Merit in 1995, one of the highest peace time military awards.

Special to the News

EMC news - Seven year old Anderson Bihler of Stittsville continues on his recovery from his brain aneurysm and massive stroke which he suffered last June. This has included not only a partial return to school at Westwind Public School but also taking part in childhood activities like Halloween. He was able to go trick-or-treating on Halloween, pedaling his adaptive bike on which he went from driveway to driveway. His mom, Shelley Black, would then go to the door and ring the doorbell to collect the candy. The pair made their way up and down the street using this procedure, collecting a bag full of treats.

Karen McCrimmon

Funds raised in the community and online for the Help Anderson Heal initiative stood at $29,656 as of last Friday, Nov. 16. These funds are being used for treatment and equipment to help Anderson on his road to recovery and to allow his mom to be with him on this journey. She had to leave her job in order to be full-time with Anderson as he slowly recovers, a recovery that may take as long as two years. The brain aneurysm and stroke left Anderson badly paralyzed on one side, a condition that requires extensive rehabilitation. A number of fundraising events in the community have contributed to the Help Anderson Heal campaign including a pancake breakfast and car wash held by Stittsville’s firefighters and a BBQ/silent auction at the Lions Hall.

DID YOU KNOW? â&#x20AC;&#x153;A REAL MEAL FOR 25 CENTSâ&#x20AC;? Gordon Bradley, who was born near Stittsville in 1906 on a farm established by his Irish great-grandfather Robert Bradley, remembers making his first deposit of $5 in the Union Bank on Stittsville Main Street in 1915. For a small place there was a lot of business in Stittsville, remembers Gordon. There was a livery stable and two blacksmiths and people used to come up on the train and they used to rent a horse and driver and go to Ashton and North Gower. The socials were mainly in the summertime according to Gordon. The Orange Lodge and the churches organized them. There were dances in Richmond- they had an outside dance platform near the arena. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I learned to dance in the old Orange Hall on Abbott Street. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d pay 25 cents to get in and 25 cents for cold meat, bread, pickles and pie â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a real meal.â&#x20AC;? *Information regarding the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Did you knowâ&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;? story was taken from the book Stittsville a Sense of Place by Barbara Bottriell, 1998.

Variety of handmade soaps on sale at Museum on Dec. 2 John Curry

EMC news - Soap has been around for centuries. It goes back at least as far as 2800 BC in ancient Babylon and after that was used by ancient Egyptians and then the Roman Empire.

Unique jazz guitar music at Gaia Java Coffee shop John Curry

EMC news - It was jazz guitar music like it usually is not played. That’s because guitarist Alex Tompkins improvised on the chord progressions, at times played both the base and chords at the same time, used octaves in the style of the famous Wes Montgomery and otherwise played familiar tunes in a non-traditional way. It all happened at the Gaia Java Coffee Company shop in Stittsville last Friday evening, Nov. 16 when Ottawa-based professional guitarist Alex Tompkins performed as a soloist. This gave him the opportunity to try out some of the solo arrangements that he has written but had not had the opportunity to perform since he usually plays with groups and bands and not as a soloist. Many of his tunes started off with a familiar sound but then he introduced, for instance, different chord progressions, taking the song to a new level. So it was with “Blue Boy,” that famous song recorded years ago by Gentleman Jim Reeves and later by Joni Mitchell. He followed this up with “Days of Wine and Roses,” a song closely associated with crooner Andy Williams. He continued his guitar

wizardry with improvised chords with such songs as “Yesterday,” that ongoing famous tune first heard in the Beatles’ 1965 album “Help”, “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” from the Wizard of Oz, and “Georgia on My Mind,” a Ray Charles standard. Alex’s improvisation with chords and his use of octaves and blocking chords in the style of the famous American jazz guitarist Wes Montgomery ensured that familiar tunes all took on a new life thanks to his talented fingers and musical mind. Wes Montgomery is considered one of the major jazz guitarists in United States history, having influenced numerous others, even the legendary Jimi Hendrix. Alex Tompkins, who went to Sacred Heart Catholic High School in Stittsville, graduated from university with a Bachelor of Music Degree with highest honours. In his studies, he studied with guitarists Wayne Eagles and Roddy Ellias while he was also a member of the Carleton University Fusion, Contemporary and Guitar Ensembles. Alex has both led and been a sideman for several groups which have performed regularly across the Ottawa region. He has also taught guitar over the past six years, both privately and at several music academies.


Emily Armitage, left, who works at the Gaia Java Coffee Company shop at the Stittsville Shopping Centre (Shoppers Drug Mart plaza) on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville, gets a closer look at the fingering being used by guitarist Alex Tompkins, right, as he warms up for his performance at the coffee shop last Friday evening.

Christmas concert coming Special to the News

to sing along with some of the Christmas carols, there is a price to the experience and it is a most reasonable $15 per person. For this, you will get to enjoy the offerings of the Capital City Chorus, an all-male chorus which sings a cappella in four-part harmony. This Capital City Chorus is dedicated to the unique style of music known as “barbershop.” The Chorus, which began in 1957, has won a number of awards over the years for its singing. On Saturday, Dec. 1 at St. Thomas Anglican Church, the Capital City Chorus will be presenting a Christmas-themed

concert including a number of sing-along carols involving audience participation. What a way not only to enjoy an evening but also to kick off the Christmas season. Light refreshments will be served in the church hall after the concert. Tickets for this Christmas concert are available now from the St. Thomas Anglican Church office at 613-836-5741 (Tuesday and Wednesday 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. and Thursday 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.). Tickets will also be available at the door. Everyone is welcome. St. Thomas Anglican Church is located at the corner of Stittsville Main Street and Carleton Cathcart Street in Stittsville.

Special to the News

EMC news - City of Ottawa Rideau-Goulbourn ward councillor Scott Moffatt is looking for artwork for his 2012 Christmas card. The contest is open to kids of all ages. The theme of the art is wide open but elements of the community at Christmas time are encouraged. But there’s not much time left to submit drawings. Drawings can be dropped off at the Goulbourn Town Hall (former Goulbourn municipal building) at Stanley’s Corners between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. any day up to this Friday, Nov. 23. Drawings can be emailed to as well. This is the first year that councillor Moffatt has held a Christmas card art contest open to everyone. In 2010, he held a Christmas card art contest involving students at Kars Public School and last year the contest was for students at Munster Elementary School.


EMC news - Listening to Christmas songs, Enjoyable. Hearing Christmas songs sung by a barbershop chorus in a cappella style in four-part harmony. Awesome. And getting a chance to actually sing along with some of these Christmas tunes. Priceless. But this is what will be happening at a Christmas concert at St. Thomas Anglican Church in Stittsville on Saturday, Dec. 1 starting at 7 p.m. It will be enjoyable, awesome and priceless, all rolled up into one. And while the experience will definitely be priceless, having an opportunity

Artist finds inspiration in simple things in life John Curry

EMC news - Artist Agata Zaborowski likes to use vibrant colours, likes to make people smile and likes painting images that depict everyday emotions. That’s why her acrylic painting “Je Pense” on display at the current exhibition “Reflection” at the Ottawa West Arts Association (owaa) gallery at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex (GRC) on Shea Road is a great example of her work. And, what’s more, this particular painting depicts a very personal and life-changing moment in her own life. The painting “Je Pense” features a facial depiction of a girl (Agata herself) who is shown both deep in thought, waiting, while on the other hand the girl also shows a surprised look. She painted “Je Pense” when her life was in transition as she had fallen in love with a man (now her husband, Preston, also an owaa artist) and his three children who lived in Las Vegas, Nevada. Her art depicts being deep in thought about the

changes that would take place in her life if she married the man while on the other hand the work shows her pleasant surprise at the ease of the decision. Their marriage brought both of them to Ottawa which is where Agata grew up. Her husband Preston Zaborowski joined the owaa last year while Agata has just recently joined. Indeed, she credits her husband with giving her the confidence and encouragement to develop her painting style and to pursue her art. Agata now always has a painting on the go but she only does a little at a time because of her duties of a mother now to four children (the three that Preston brought to the marriage as well as a baby who is just turning one year old). Perhaps that’s why she prefers acrylic as her medium of choice because it dries quickly, allowing her to move as quickly as possible in her painting. When she has an idea, she wants to bring it to life on canvas as soon as possible. She finds her inspiration in

the simple things in life such as talking with a friend over coffee or sipping some wine with friends or watching her children ride their bikes. Agata sums up her style as being character influenced abstract art, focused on images depicting everyday emotions and moments in life. She feels that her current style has what she calls “the YES factor,” which is a feeling that she as an artist gets when she is satisfied with her work. She says that in her art, she tries to make people smile. She loves it when people view her art and they light up with the passion and love for life that she tries to show in her art. Agata has been experimenting with painting on and off since she was young. Her father was an artist as well and she remembers the enjoyment that she experienced watching him as a child. Hanging right next to Agata’s “Je Pense” work in the current “Reflection” exhibition at the owaa gallery at the GRC is her husband Preston’s photograph on canvas entitled “Innocence.” This black and white photograph shows his daughter looking out a window of an old building. He admits that he snapped this photo quickly but it captures the moment perfectly. Preston is not only a photographer but also is a painter who uses mediums including acrylics and oil. He also does metal work. He also makes all of the frames for Agata’s paintings like “Je Pense.” These frames are made from recycled wood. Preston and Agata Zaborowski were both involved with a Preston Street art initiative this past year and they

hope to be involved with it again this year, along with an art initiative on Sparks Street. The current exhibition “Reflection” is on display at the owaa gallery at the GRC on Shea Road in Stittsville through to Friday, Jan. 4, 2012. The gallery is open whenever the GRC is open which is all day long seven days a week. The art on display at the exhibition is virtually all on sale. A visit to the gallery might be

worthwhile for anyone who is looking for that special gift for a friend or loved one this coming Christmas and is contemplating something in the world of art. There’s lots to choose from at the owaa gallery. Those visiting the owaa gallery should also take time, if possible, to fill out a ballot in the People’s Choice voting that is held in conjunction with every exhibition at the gallery.

The artists love getting the feedback to their work that is reflected in these ballots so that every vote entered in the People’s Choice voting does have an impact. There are ballots at the owaa gallery, along with the ballot box in which to place the ballots. The results of the People’s Choice balloting are announced following the conclusion of each exhibition at the owaa gallery.


Artist Agata Zaborowski happily presents her painting “Je Pense” that is now on display in the “Reflection” exhibition at the Ottawa West Arts Association (owaa) gallery at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex in Stittsville.

Community Builder Award to Hannah Hempinstall Special to the News

EMC news - Richmondâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hannah Hempinstall has received another major community award. While hosting the fifth annual Dance 4 Diabetes at Richmond Public School on Thursday, Nov. 15, Hannah was surprised by representatives of the United Way who presented her with a United Way Community Builder Award. Ottawa entertainer Suzanne Pinel was on hand to formally present the award to Hannah. Each year United Way Ottawa presents about 50 Community Builder Awards, honouring individuals, organizations, agencies and neighbourhood groups who work tirelessly, passionately and collaboratively to make Ottawa a better place in which to live, work and raise a family. These Community Builder Awards are presented by one of a number of community personalities. Besides Ms. Pinel, who made this presentation to Hannah, other presenters include CTVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Michael Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Byrne, CBC Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Karen Soloman and Lucy Van Oldenbarneveld and television host Sarah Onyango. The spirit of the Community Builder Award is reflected in the wording on the personalized plaque that is given to each award recipient like Hannah: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thank you for helping to build a stronger, more caring community for all of us.â&#x20AC;? In addition to receiving the plaque and being honoured at an annual awards ceremony, the names of all recipients of the Community Builder Award are inscribed on the Wall of Inspiration located in Jean Pigott Hall at Ottawa city hall as a visible reminder to city residents and visitors of the enduring commitment that these individuals and organizations have made to Ottawa

and its welfare. It lists those who have made a real difference in the lives of others in the community. Being presented with the United Wayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Community Builder Award is the second major community award which Hannah has received this year. Last August, she received the Mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s City Builder Award at an Ottawa city council meeting, presented to her by mayor Jim Watson and Rideau-Goulbourn ward councillor Scott Moffatt. The Mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s City Builder Award is a civic honour created by mayor Watson to recognize an individual, group or organization that has demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to making the city a better place through outstanding volunteerism or exemplary action. Hannah has been making a difference in the community since organizing a first Dance 4 Diabetes at Richmond Public School five years ago. She is dedicated to raising funds for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation to help find a cure for the disease. It all started when her best friend was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in 2008, a situation which saw her require multiple daily injections and blood tests to survive. Hannah, in learning all that she could about the disease, realized that there is no cure at present. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why she started a fundraiser which she called Dance 4 Diabetes or D4D in short. Her first Dance 4 Diabetes which she held at Richmond Public School, her school at the time, raised more than $2,800. She promised herself that she would continue the fundraising until a cure is found. So far, she has raised more than $28,000 with Dance 4

Diabetes event both at Richmond Public School and at Goulbourn Middle School as well as at the dance studio that she attends. While doing this fundraising, Hannah, who is now 13, has maintained an honour roll standing, has been elected to student council for three straight years, has danced competitively, has been an assistant teacher at her dance studio, is working on her black belt in kung fu and was chosen as the youngest member of the Ottawa Police Youth Advisory Committee. She was also honoured as one of Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Junior Citizens of the Year in 2011, receiving the award from the LieutenantGovernor. She graduated from grade eight at Goulbourn Middle School last June and is now in high school.

Stittsville Lions donate $300 to M.O.R.E.

John Curry

EMC news - M.O.R.E., which stands for Multiple Organ Retrieval and Exchange program, now has “more” thanks to the Stittsville District Lions Club. At its meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 14, the Stittsville District Lions Club donated $300 to M.O.R.E. This is a program which Lions Clubs in the Ottawa

area have supported for years. Funding under the M.O.R.E. program goes to help those patients waiting for a transplant with any expenses that are not covered by OHIP or by private health plans. This might include extraordinary travel expenses or to pay for required dental examinations or to help with expenses when income decreases due to health problems while waiting for a transplant. At the meeting, Stittsville

District Lions Club members heard about the ongoing need for organ transplants both from Sis Grosset of the Gloucester North Lions Club and also from Diane Boisjoli, an organ transplant social worker. Sis Grosset noted the severe shortage of organs donated for transplant, a shortage that is getting worse. Organs transplanted include kidneys, heart, liver and lungs. The donation of organs

and tissue can save the lives of up to eight others. Right now there are over 4,000 people on waiting lists for organ transplants in Canada. Canada, though, has one of the lowest rates for organ donations in the world. There is a gap between need and organs available for transplant, Ms. Grosset said, noting that only 21 percent of Canadians are registered as organ donors. She urged that everyone

should go online or to the nearest OHIP office to register as an organ donor. She also urged those who wish to donate their organs upon their death to talk to their families about their wish to do this. “This is a gift of life,” she said about organ donation, noting that donating organs will allow others to live – quite a legacy to leave. “Don’t take your organs to heaven: Heaven knows we need them here,” she said.

Diane Boisjoli, with 15 years experience as a transplant social worker at the Ottawa Hospital, told the Lions Club members that most transplant recipients enjoy years of life after a successful transplant, some up to 30 years. She praised the Lions Clubs in the area for their help in helping those in need through the M.O.R.E. program. “You are making a difference in many lives,” she said.

creating these items, is in providing an outlet for jewellery made out of recycled paper made by the women of these families.

The Sow Good Sale is so very good Special to the News

EMC news - The community of Seje in Kenya in Africa will be able to take another step towards self-sufficiency and stability thanks to the success of last Saturday’s

The Sow Good Sale at the Community Bible Church in Stittsville. The Community Bible Church has a partnership with the community of Seje to help that community become self-

sustaining. The profits from last Saturday’s The Sow Good Sale, which are expected to be just over $11,200, are all going directly to help the Seje community.

With these funds, the Seje community will be able to acquire a couple of acres of land which will be owned by and developed for agricultural production by Seje villagers. The produce generated by this

land is go to feed local orphans with any excess being sold to help fund the Gracious Academy School which was established just last January. All this is being done thanks to the generous sup-

port from the community to this year’s The Sow Good Sale last Saturday as well as the efforts and work of the many volunteers and crafters who organized and put on The Sow Good Sale this year.

Community Bible Church helping Seje 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 last Saturday’s second annual The Sow Good Sale at the church was 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 year’s initial The Sow Good Sale, the first permanent school structure in Seje is now fully funded. Through the generosity of local supporters, more than 50 four and five 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 benefitting from regular nutrition. More children still need to be sponsored. 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 qualifies for charitable tax receipts. Anyone interested in sponsoring a child in Seje should contact the Com-

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.

munity Bible Church at 613-836-2606. Additional funds for educational support in Seje were raised at last March’s “Quiz for a Cause” at the Community Bible Church. Last June’s “Walk for Water” 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 “You Feed Them” 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

New book ‘Goulbourn Stained Glass’ is launched John Curry

EMC news - “Goulbourn Stained Glass,” a new Goulbourn Township Historical Society book authored by Bernie Shaw, was officially launched at last Saturday’s November meeting of the Society. Copies of the 54 page book were sold at the meeting and had been on sale at several venues prior to the actual official launch. Historical Society president Barbara Bottriell introduced author Bernie Shaw who was at the meeting and also introduced two of the three photographers who had taken the pictures of church stained glass windows which appear in full colour in the book – namely John Brummell and John Bottriell. The other photographer, Mike Bryan, was unable to be at the meeting.

President Bottriell noted that Bernie Shaw did all of the research and writing for the text of the book, saying that the book would not have happened without his efforts. She also noted that John Bottriell did all of the design and layout of the book. President Bottriell herself was also involved with the production of the booking terms of overseeing its production as overall editor. Proof reading was done by Joan Darby and Georgia Derrick. In her foreword to the book, Ms. Bottriell noted that this was more than a book about stained glass windows. “This is a book about windows,” she writes, “but it is really about the families to whom the windows were dedicated and their ancestors who first crossed the seas to come to Goulbourn Township.”

The connection of each window to Goulbourn township is outlined in the book. Author Bernie Shaw, in his preface to the book, notes that the book attempts to give a representative picture of early life in Goulbourn Township illustrated through the lives of the families remembered in the church window memorials. He notes that the project was suggested by Doreen Bell, a member of the Historical Society. Churches and their stained glass windows which are dealt with in the book include Stittsville United Church, St. Thomas Anglican Church and St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, all in Stittsville; St. Paul’s United Church, St. John’s Anglican Church and St. Philip Catholic Church, all in Richmond; St. Clare Catholic Church at Dwyer Hill;

Munster United Church and St. Stephen Anglican Church (now the Munster branch of the Ottawa Public library) in Munster; and Christ Church Anglican, Ashton United Church and Melville Presbyterian Church (now a private residence), all in Ashton. The book also contained a brief description of the history of church stained glass windows as well as a map showing the location of the various churches in Goulbourn. The book features full colour photos of 105 stained glass windows found in Goulbourn churches. It is selling for $20 a copy and can be ordered with a cheque sent by mail to the Goulbourn Township 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.

Christmas Fair at Ottawa Waldorf School Special to the News

EMC news - If you get excited about Christmas, then you’ll want to make note of this Sunday’s 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 this 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 – this 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 - A new book featuring stories about parishioners at St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s United Church in Richmond who are over 80 years of age has been published. But if you are planning to get a copy, you are out of luck

â&#x20AC;&#x201C; at least for the present. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because all of the copies of this book, entitled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Over 80â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s,â&#x20AC;? were gobbled up quickly at a book launch at the church last Sunday morning, Nov. 18 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it was a sellout. Now thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a popular book! Author Joanne Braaksma, who compiled the stories of the 15 members of the con-


Joanne Braaksma of Richmond holds the book entitled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Over 80â&#x20AC;&#x2122;sâ&#x20AC;? which she has compiled from interviews with members of the congregation at St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s United Church in Richmond who are over 80 years of age.

gregation who are over 80 years of age, had arranged for 50 copies of the book to be printed as she wanted to meet the demand but did not want to have copies left over. Well, there are none left over. She got the idea for the book from an article in the United Church Observer magazine. So, she set about to talk to each of the parishioners at St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s who are over 80 years of age as she wanted to ensure that their life stories are not forgotten or missed. Those interviewed and whose stories appear in the book are Elaine Kuhn, Ruth Herd, Bob Abbott, Christine Bailey, Gilmour Brown, Colleen Brown, Lorne Arbuckle, Doreen Arbuckle, Donald Foster, Beverly Love, Hilda Moore, Helen Smith, Faith Sutherland, Elsie Estabrooks and Norm Adams. All of the proceeds from the sale of the book are being donated by Ms. Braaksma to the church. The book was sold for $10 a copy. The book launch was held in the basement hall at St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s United Church following the 10:30 a.m. Sunday service. A special treat at the reception accompanying the book launch were cookies specially prepared for the event, featuring â&#x20AC;&#x153;80â&#x20AC;? outlined in frosting on each one of them.

Refreshments before meeting gets going Special to the News

EMC news – Usually you have to sit through a meeting before getting to enjoy refreshments. That’s not the case at this annual general meeting of the Stittsville Village Association (SVA) which is being held this Thursday, Nov. 22. Refreshments will be served starting at 7 p.m., with the annual gen-

eral meeting itself to get underway at 7:30 p.m. This is all happening at the Goulbourn Town Hall (former Goulbourn municipal building) on Huntley Road at Stanley’s Corners just south of Stittsville. Everyone is urged and most welcome to attend not only to enjoy the refreshments but also to hear about the activities of the SVA during the

past year. At this annual general meeting, there will be reports given on planning, environmental and transportation matters as well as on the various community events hosted by the SVA over the course of the year. A financial report will also be given. There will be an election of officers for the coming year along with

the election of executive members to fill any vacant positions. At this year’s annual general meeting, there will be a couple of more or less housekeeping amendments to the SVA constitution. One will involve changing an “and” to “or” so that the constitution will allow the number of members on the SVA executive to exceed eight if determined

at an annual general meeting. The annual general meeting will also include a presentation to the meeting by city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri. Everyone in Stittsville and area is urged to attend this annual general meeting and hear about the work of the SVA in preserving and shaping the character of the community.

Mary Cook’s Memories

Bartering was survival tool living in the 30’s There seemed to me that not much money changed hands back in those Depression years. Of course, there wasn’t much money around. Mother pretty well ran the house on what was in the sugar bowl holding her egg money, which came from selling eggs, cream, butter, chickens and sticky buns door-to-door in Renfrew on Saturdays and of course, in the summertime, a few more pennies were realized

when she could add fresh vegetables from our ample garden to her wares. Father always had a few coins in his pocket, but they were few and far between. It seemed to me back then that most of the commerce of the day was done by bartering. Mr. Briscoe at Briscoe’s General Store wasn’t interested in trading what he sold for chickens, vegetables, cream or butter. After all, the entire Northcote farm area had an ample supply of those things themselves. But he always welcomed Mother’s sticky buns. These she traded for sugar and green tea. For the rare times old Dr. Murphy had to drive out all the way from Renfrew and there were very few coins in the egg money bowl, he would be paid for his visit with a freshly plucked chicken, a sealer jar or fresh cream, and of course, eggs. There was always an ample supply of eggs and Dr. Murphy, it seemed to me, never expected to get cold hard cash for his trip out from Renfrew. The stores in town were a different matter. Those owned locally were used to bartering with the farming community. But you could never make a deal with Walker’s Store, which was owned by some big firm in Toronto. It had to be cold hard

cash. But it wasn’t unusual to see Mother making a deal at Scott’s Hardware or Aikenhead Store, trading a fresh chicken for chicken wire or freshly churned butter for cough medicine. There really was a Mr. Scott and a Mr. Aikenhead and they seemed to know cash was scarce. I doubt Mother was ever turned away because she hadn’t the money to pay for what she needed. It seemed to me Father was continually bartering with other farmers in Northcote. It wasn’t at all unusual to see him walking a young heifer out the lane with a rope around its neck and coming back with a colt. Or he would load a sheep in the back of the old Model T and come back with a couple of newborn piglets. It was how the farm community survived the terrible Depression that had closed in around them. Although we depended heavily on the hand me down boxes that came regularly from from Aunt Lizzie in Regina, it wasn’t at all unusual for the clothes to be traded amongst the neighbours. I once got a lovely coat from my little friend Joyce who had outgrown it. I doubt we had anything to give her in return -- they were so much better off than we were. After all, Joyce lived in a brick house and had a toilet. As regular as clockwork, we had visits from Rawleigh and Watkins door-to-door salesmen. They travelled by horse and buggy, and we could always tell when they were coming in our long lane, because they both had big brass bells around their horse’s necks which gave plenty warning they were on their way. They were both great salesmen and it was hard to resist their wares. It wasn’t unusual for Mother, when she had bought over her limit to start bartering with them. They bantered back and forth and when the salesmen realized there wasn’t enough money to pay for what Mother had chosen, they could either take the couple pounds of butter and a few eggs, or pack up and leave. They usually accepted the barter. It seemed to me back then, that bartering was simply a way of life. There was no embarrassment to trading one thing for another. It was just another tool that helped people of the 1930s survive.

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 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.

Fundraising event for Anderson Bihler Special to the News

EMC news - There will be a fundraising event for seven year old Anderson Bihler this Saturday, Nov. 24 starting at 7 p.m. at the Barley Mow restaurant at the Stittsville Corners shopping area (Stittsville Sobeys plaza) at the corner of Hazeldean Road and Carp Road. Tickets for this fundraiser, at $20 each, are available at the Barley Mow restaurant or at the Barrhaven Source For Sports on Greenbank Road in South Nepean (phone 613-823-9022). So far, over $28,000 has been raised in the campaign to help Anderson with his recovery. This fundraising is meant to help Anderson and his mom have the financial resources to provide for Anderson’s medical needs and to allow his mother to stay home and care for him during his recovery. Mom Shelley Black left her job to be with Anderson through his medical ordeal since last June and now, thanks to the fundraising, she will be able to stay with him and care for him at least for the next year. Funds raised in the community to help Anderson will go toward neurological physiotherapy, equipment needs and various forms of treatment while also helping his mom to continue to be at his side throughout his recovery.

Leek, potato and ham gratin is a tasty dish on a cold day Special to the News

EMC lifestyle – Firm cheeses offer a great flexibility of use. They keep very well. They are delicious by themselves and can also be used in a thousand different ways in the kitchen. Pastas, cooked dishes, quiches, omelets, gratins, sandwiches and salads couldn’t survive by without them! At any meal, these cheeses add taste and nutritional value. Gratins are often laden with heavy cream and butter, and cheese. This lightened version is just as delicious and wonderfully comforting. To serve with roast meats or poultry, omit the ham. Preparation Time: 15 minutes Cooking Time: one hour Servings: four as main course or six as side dish Ingredients: 1 bunch leeks (two to four) 1 tbsp (15 ml) each of olive oil and butter 2 cloves garlic, minced 1/2 tsp (2 ml) dried thyme leaves 1/4 tsp (1 ml) each of salt and pepper 1 tbsp (15 ml) Dijon mustard 1/2 cup (125 ml) chicken or vegetable stock 1 cup (250 ml) diced ham (about 125 g) 1 kg potatoes (five to six medium)

Call 2-1-1 Special to the News

EMC news - There’s 9-11, the emergency response number. And there’s 3-1-1, the city’s information number.

Preparation: Cut leeks in half lengthwise and wash well. Slice white and light green parts. In a nonstick skillet, heat the oil and butter over medium heat. Stir in the leeks and garlic and cook until slightly softened, for three to five minutes, stirring often. Remove from heat. Season with thyme, salt and pepper. Stir in the mustard, stock and ham and then set aside. Peel and thinly slice the potatoes to about a quarter inch (half a centimetre) thick. Place one-third of the potato slices in a buttered eight- to 10-cup (two to 2.5 L) gratin or shallow baking dish. Spoon half of the leek mixture over top. Repeat layers once. Top with remaining potatoes. Cover with buttered parchment paper, pressing buttered side down. Bake in an oven at 400 F (200 C) for 45 to 50 minutes or until the potatoes are tender when pierced with a knife. Remove parchment paper. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake for 15 minutes to melt cheese and lightly brown potatoes. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving. Tip: A mandolin or food processor makes even, thin potato slices. To make slicing easier, cut potatoes in half crosswise and place flat edge down on mandolin.

But there’s also 2-1-1, perhaps not as well known but it is the number where people can find access to needed community and social services. Community support services available through the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre include re-

spite care, Meals on Wheels, foot care clinics, transportation to medical appointments, the “Snow Go” program, Diners Clubs, friendly visiting, and a service program, formerly encompassing Home Help and Home Maintenance programs.

EMC sports - The Stittsville Royals came up on the short end of a low scoring Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League game at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex (GRC) in Stittsville last Sunday afternoon, Nov. 18. The visiting Shawville Pontiacs only managed 20 shots at the Stittsville net in the game and yet the visitors skated away with a 3-1 victory as the hometown Royals only generated 22 shots at the Shawville goal. The Pontiacs led 1-0 after the first period and 2-0 after two periods. The teams exchanged goals in the third period, leaving Shawville with the 3-1 victory. Alex Hulford scored the only goal for the Royals in this game, with teammates Jordan Bosley and Brandon Lee picking up assists on the play. This was not the same story

as in the Royals’ game last Saturday in Almonte where the Royals outscored the home team Almonte Thunder 6-2, peppering 42 shots at the Almonte goal. Almonte had 36 shots on the Stittsville net. After the teams battled to a 1-1 draw in the first period, the Royals scored the only three goals of the second period to take a commanding 4-1 lead into the third period. In this third period, the Royals outscored Almonte 2-1 to end up winning by a 6-2 count. It was a big game for Kevin Groulx of the Royals who scored three goals and also added an assist for a four-point game. All three of the goals came on the power play. Other scorers for the Royals in this game were Scott Barnes, Alex Hulford and Michael Di Bello. Kyle Drisdelle earned three assists in the game. Single assists went to Kevin Groulx, Michael Di Bello, Michael

Kalyn, Steve Genier and Matt Kadolph. The Stittsville Royals are now tied for second place in the six-team Valley Division of the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League, with 19 points after 18 games. The Royals have nine wins, eight losses and one overtime loss. The Royals have scored 74 goals in these 18 games to date, while allowing 69 goals to be scored by opposing teams. The Royals are tied at 19 points with both Renfrew Timberwolves and Arnprior Packers. The Perth Blue Wings lead the Valley Division with 23 points although the Blue Wings have played two more games than the Stittsville Royals. The Stittsville Royals’ next home game is this Sunday, Nov. 25 at 2:30 p.m. against the visiting Renfrew Timberwolves at the GRC on Shea Road in Stittsville.

Sacred Heart Huskies lose tie breaker Special to the News

EMC sports - It was a so-called tie breaker to determine which team advanced into the playoffs in high school tier one junior girls basketball league action on Monday, Nov. 12 but for the Sacred Heart High School Huskies, it was a heart breaker. That’s because the Huskies lost by just two points, 42-40 to the Mother Teresa High School squad, thus ending their season and their hopes for success in the playoffs. Mother Teresa went

on to lose 51-21 to St. Matthew High School in semi-final playoff action. It was a season of contrasts for the Sacred Heart Huskies junior girls’ basketball team. There were three straight wins to begin the season which were then followed by three straight losses, leaving the team with a record of three wins and three losses and a tie for fourth place in the seven team league. That’s why there was the tie breaker to determine which team – Sacred Heart or Mother Teresa – advanced to playoff action.

Rotary hears Diefenbunker now a top visitor attraction John Curry

EMC news - Built as a Cold War era underground bunker, the Diefenbunker in Carp is now one of the top family destinations in Ottawa and one of the area’s premier attractions. The story of the Diefenbunker and its evolution from Cold War bunker to being a visitor attraction that may see 50,000 visitors this year was relayed to members of the Rotary Club of Ottawa – Stittsville by the Diefenbunker’s Interpretation and Visitor Experience Manager Christine McGuire at a recent Rotary Club meeting. She told how the four-storey, 100,000 square foot underground bunker, built as a nuclear blast shelter, has now become an experiential learning experience destination for people of all ages. She said that this has been done not only by telling its Cold War story but also by making its offerings relevant to the people of today by, among other things, hosting birthday parties and wedding, hosting spy camps and haunted zombie walks and holding full day PD day programs. The Diefenbunker was built as a military facility, started in 1959 and completed in 1961. It served as a National

Defense communication centre from 1961 through 1994 while also serving as an available nuclear blast shelter for the Prime Minister and up to 500 government and military officials in the event of nuclear war. Decommissioned in 1994 following the end of the Cold War, the then-township of West Carleton saved the facility, purchasing it and turning it into a museum. In 1997, it was declared a national historic site due to its Cold War significance. “It’s literally like an underground city,” Ms. McGuire told the Rotary Club members, outlining its 100,000 square foot size and four levels, complete with a war cabinet room and a Bank of Canada vault. Currently the Diefenbunker, now known as Canada’s Cold War Museum, has a history centre on its top level while the rest of the bunker is like it was when it was operating. The Diefenbunker hopes to build a new visitor centre at the facility by 2015, serving as an interpretative centre which visitors could experience before entering the actual bunker. Recently the Diefenbunker has undergone a $1.6 million retrofit that has added another exit/entrance so that the facility can now handle up to 500




visitors at a time, a huge increase from the previous allowed capacity of 60 people due to having only one entrance/exit. The Diefenbunker is now trying to increase its rentals for such events as weddings and festivals thanks to this increased facility capacity. In addition, its audience development strategy includes connecting with schools and also reaching out to various interest groups such as those interested in lecture series and book launches. The Diefenbunker also wants to be part of the community and has signed up over 500 new members to its nonprofit governing organization so far this year. There are also volunteer opportunities available at the Diefenbunker for community members. The current goals are to increase the number of visitors and also to increase the facility’s operational funding. Community partnerships are considered vital to achieve these goals, particularly the site’s sustainability. The Diefenbunker currently has five full time staff members and employs over 20 staff on a seasonal basis. It is open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Private group tours with reduced rates can be booked.

Police Service budget Laura Mueller

EMC news - Ottawa’s population is growing, but the size of its police service won’t be for the next two years. The police service has no plans to add new officer or civilian positions until 2015 as the Ottawa Police Service tries to hold the line on increasing costs and corresponding tax hikes. As it stands this year, an average homeowner can expect to pay an additional $13 a year on their tax bill for police services. The police budget is going up by $9.5 million: $4 million from tax assessment growth from new homes and businesses, and $5.5 million paid by existing taxes. That amount represents the 2.5 per cent increase set by city council. The city’s population continues to rise, but the number of police officers isn’t increasing in step, said Chief Charles

Bordeleau. That ratio will start to catch up with us in 2015 and 2016, when the service plans to add 23 new members (both sworn and civilian) in each year. The police service is able to hire officers to make up for those retiring by finding cost savings elsewhere. A major one announced last month was the new collision reporting centre, which will open in 2013 and bring $600,000 in new revenue that year. That will rise to $800,000 in 2014. But most of the $2 million in savings the police found this year would come from a reduction in a stepped-up training program that was needed after amalgamation, when around 50 officers were retiring each year. The Just in Time program was started to ensure that new officers were ready to hit the ground as soon as officers retired, but that number has now dropped to 30 officers retiring each year. As a result, the police service

plans spend $1.1 million less on that training program in 2013. As always, the top cop cost is staff compensation; it comprises 83 per cent of the police budget. The city will have to spend $9.5 million more on its civilian and sworn employees in 2013. After public consultations, city council is set to vote on the budget on Nov. 28. A new police station near Carleton Lodge long-term care facility is on the horizon. When it was first announced in 2010, the city expected to finish building the station by the end of this year. It was pushed back, but there is $30 million set aside to get that project underway in 2014. The whole project is expected to cost $50.3 million. The city also plans to put $5 million towards upgrading communications centres and adding a second centre, which will temporarily be located at the Elgin Street police headquarters.

University champion helps out wrestlers Special to the News

EMC sports - She’s a two-time Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) wrestling champion who shared some of her expertise with grade 7 and 8 wrestling students at Sacred Heart Catholic High School in Stittsville on Monday, Nov. 12. Erica Wiebe, a graduate of Sacred Heart who is now in her fifth year at the University of Calgary, was back home in Stittsville for a visit and helped out with some of the school’s youngster wrestlers. She worked with them and gave them some tips about various wrestling moves. And what a wrestler to learn from. She won the 72 kg national university title last year and defended her title at this year’s CIS national wrestling championships at Lakehead University in Thunder Bay, giving her back to back titles in the 72 kg class. This year she received the Canada West Student-Athlete Community Service Award. In 2011, she was a member of Team Canada for the Commonwealth wrestling championships in Melbourne, Australia, competing in the 72 kg class. The five foot, nine inch, 155 pound Erica is studying kinesiology at the University of Calgary.
