EMC news - It’s back again this year and once again you can have the chance to win a Christmas gift basket filled with items valued in total probably close to $1,500. These include a Swiss Gear suitcase, a KitchenAid covered roaster, an Olympus digital camera, a Black and Decker drill and much more. You can really make your Christmas this year a special one by purchasing a ticket in the draw for this Christmas gift basket. This Christmas gift basket pre-Christmas draw has become a tradition at Scotiabank in Stittsville. Introduced by then-manager Paul Stead, this draw has generated over $25,000 for the Stittsville Food Bank in the past four years. Last year, for instance, the draw raised $5,886 for the Stittsville Food Bank. The amount raised is helped considerably by Scotiabank which matches the funds raised by the sale of draw tickets but these matching funds would not be available were it not for the generosity and support of Stittsville and area residents who purchase the draw tickets. The draw tickets are on sale now at the Scobiabank at the Shops of Main Street plaza at Stittsville Main Street and Carp Road in Stittsville. The gift basket is also on display there as well so that you can see what you may be winning in the draw. The classic nutcracker, looking like it had just stepped out of Tahaikovsky’s famous ballet The Nutcracker, might catch your eye. Or what about those Belgian chocolates or those wine glasses and bottle of wine. Or that set of travel mugs or that Christmas CD gift set. There’s also a festive serving tray, placemats, a cookbook, an interactive children’s book and a Mastercraft screwdriver/driver bit set. As you see, there’s lots in the basket – and this is only some of the items. The draw for this Christmas gift basket will take place on Friday, Dec. 21 at the branch, so the winner will be getting it in time for Christmas. And, besides making your Christmas a little merrier, don’t forget that all of the proceeds will be going to the Stittsville Food Bank to help the less fortunate in the community. You just can’t beat that. See photo on page 5.

Let’s “fill the bus� for the Food Bank John Curry

Lions Club thanks sponsors for supporting lights. - Page 22


EMC news - How many food items does it take to fill an OC Transpo bus? Last December, over 9,000 items donated for the Stittsville Food Bank were enough to fill to overflowing an OC Transpo bus in the annual “Fill the Bus� campaign to support food banks in Ottawa, including the Stittsville Food Bank. This annual campaign happens again in Stittsville

on Saturday, Dec. 8 when an OC Transpo bus will be parked outside Brown’s Your Independent Grocer on Stittsville Main Street, collecting donations, both non-perishable food items and money, for the Stittsville Food Bank. The bus will be there from 9 a.m. through to 5 p.m. Last December, the generosity of residents of Stittsville and area showed as 9,445 food items were donated in this “Fill the Bus� event. Another $1,035.25 in cash was donated.

It is hoped that this year’s “Fill the Bus� event on Saturday, Dec. 8 will do just as well and hopefully even surpass last year’s totals because the need is there this year and it needs to be met to help the less fortunate in the community. Brown’s Your Independent Grocer (YIG) is one of the YIG stores in the Ottawa area where this “Fill the Bus� campaign takes place. Stittsville Food Bank volunteers will be on hand to help those donating to the campaign, as will volunteers from OC Transpo.

Phil Sweetnam heads SVA executive John Curry

EMC news - The Stittsville Village Association (SVA) has a new president. Phil Sweetnam, who had been serving as SVA vicepresident, was elected as president at the organization’s annual general meeting at the

Goulbourn Town Hall at Stanley’s Corners on Thursday evening, Nov. 22. He takes over from outgoing president Marilyn Jenkins who now becomes the SVA’s immediate past president. Theresa Qadri has stepped up to become the SVA vicepresident while Doug Robertson, who has been serving

as the SVA’s interim secretary with secretary Tanya Hein on a maternity break, has become the permanent secretary. Tanya Hein will be staying involved as an SVA director, as will David Fairbrother whose term as a director had expired but who was re-elected at the annual meeting. Treasurer Claude Keon has

another year left on his term as do SVA directors David Jenkins, Christine Hartig, Jamie Lynn Young, Laurie Scheer, Doug Sutherland and Tim LaPlante. Newly elected as SVA directors at the annual general meeting were Marion Gullock, who is a former SVA director, Luc Therrien, Nancy

Therrien and Ayah Stretch. The SVA has 12 directors as well as its four-member executive and an immediate past president. Members of the executive and directors serve for two year terms, with the terms staggered so that half are elected one year and the other half the next. After the election at the annual general meeting, new president Phil Sweetnam said that with everyone’s active

support, the new SVA executive will continue to work to get the job done of ensuring that Stittsville continues to be a place where people enjoy living, working and playing. At the annual general meeting, a motion to increase the number of SVA directors from the previously constitutionally-allowed 8 to 12 was passed. The SVA had functioned during the past year with nine directors. 613.623.5903 UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT Come meet Rachel & her team

Couple of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;firstsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; at Sunday afternoon concert

John Curry

EMC news - It was a time of â&#x20AC;&#x153;firstsâ&#x20AC;? at the Stittsville Villa Retirement Community last Sunday afternoon, Nov. 25. The newly formed West Ottawa Ladiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Chorus was there, performing the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first-ever Christmas concert. And, for the residents who filled the Villaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lounge and adjoining meeting room area to take in the concert, it was

their first Christmas concert of the season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We love coming here. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re special people,â&#x20AC;? West Ottawa Ladiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Chorus music director Robert Dueck told the assembled residents as the group wound up the concert with the last of several singalong songs on the program, the always favourite â&#x20AC;&#x153;Silent Nightâ&#x20AC;? which the Chorus led into by singing â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peace, Peace.â&#x20AC;? The Villa residents at-

tending the concert were all provided programs which included the words to all of the singalong selections which included â&#x20AC;&#x153;Angels we have heard on high,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do you hear what I hear?â&#x20AC;?, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Beginning to look a lot like Christmas,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Silver Bells,â&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;White Christmas.â&#x20AC;? For these singalong tunes, members of the Chorus moved from their assembled chorus position to spread out among the audience, encour-

aging participation â&#x20AC;&#x201C; taking the music right to the people, as it were. Entitled â&#x20AC;&#x153;An Afternoon of Christmas Music,â&#x20AC;? the one-hour long concert was just that, including not only the more familiar singalong numbers but also a collection of Christmas oriented tunes ranging from a Christmas folk song â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Song of the Birdsâ&#x20AC;? as well as the snappy â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Tiny Kingâ&#x20AC;? song that encouraged rhythmic clapping by the au-

dience to the haunting â&#x20AC;&#x153;Beautiful Decemberâ&#x20AC;? telling the story of what happens in December as well as what to expect in the following spring. Some of the musical offerings by the West Ottawa Ladiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Chorus included vocal introductions or solos such as Ingrid Gemmellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s introductory solo for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Silver Bells,â&#x20AC;? Nicole Laheyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sung introduction for â&#x20AC;&#x153;White Christmas,â&#x20AC;? the singing of Liz Mevel and Reta Hamilton as they were in

In addition, the trio of flute players â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Christine Philipson, Crystal Payne and Katherine Allan â&#x20AC;&#x201C; accompanied the West Ottawa Ladiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Chorus at times in the concert. Christine Philipson was prominent in the presentation of the song â&#x20AC;&#x153;Where Shepherdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lately Kneltâ&#x20AC;? while all three flute players were involved with the choir in the song â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sing with Festive Cheer.â&#x20AC;? Director Robert Dueck was kept busy throughout the concert, not only directing the Chorus but also turning around and directing the audience for the several singalong pieces. The Chorus, whose members wore white blouses adorned with holly-ornamented broaches, was accompanied in the concert by pianists Barb Creech, Bonnie MacDiarmid and Lorraine Harker. The West Ottawa Ladiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Chorus will be one of the guest performers at the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Welcome Christmasâ&#x20AC;? community Christmas concert being held by the Goulbourn Male Chorus on Sunday afternoon, Dec. 16.

How Ottawa got its game back


hoever says Ottawa is a town that fun forgot had better take a second look Following an announcement last week that a professional menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball club is set to take up residence in the city later next year, the capital is starting to look like Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sporting hotbed. Once the National Basketball League of Canada franchise starts up, it will add to the expanding roster

of athletic attractions in this city, potentially placing it second only to Toronto when it comes to professional sporting clubs. By the summer of 2015, we could boast National Hockey League, Canadian Football League, North American Soccer League and major league-affiliated baseball clubs. Also playing in the city are the Ottawa 67â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and varsity teams from two universities. Ottawa would be one of

the few NHL cities to also host a Canadian Hockey League franchise, and would be home to the only the third MLB-affiliate baseball club outside of the Toronto Blue Jays and Vancouver Canadians. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop there either. Ottawa will play host to a pair of high-profile international womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sporting events over the next few years in the form of the Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s World Ice Hockey Championship and

the Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s World Cup, the top soccer tournament for female competitors. What does this say about the fortunes of a town that has in the recent past been considered a sporting basket case, one that lost its CFL club twice, its former TripleA ball team in 2006 and nearly lost the Senators 10 years ago? Clearly Ottawa has its game back. That shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be too surprising though. Ottawans love being active. We love to

cycle, we love to canoe, we love to ski, we love to run. The Ottawa Race Weekend, for example, routinely draws tens of thousands of runners. The roads in the city are sprinkled with cars sporting racks to carry either boats or bikes. This passion for activity makes it rather natural for us to appreciate other athletic endeavours. The Senators regularly fill the 18,000plus seat Scotiabank Place. Despite the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s passion for

the NHL, the 67â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s are among the CHL attendance leaders. Interest in the Ottawa Fat Cats Intercounty Baseball League franchise helped prove Ottawa was still a viable market for a minor league baseball affiliate. If thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s action on the field, ice or court, Ottawans will be there. The city should be taking every opportunity to show the rest of the country, and the rest of the world for that matter, how passionate Ottawa is about sports and how it plays a significant role in making the capital an exciting, diverse place to live.


Progress doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be awful You couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even stand up with a beer in your hand. There were no games to play, no decent food, no live music. These were the rules, imposed by the province. The result of those rules was the only thing you could do in a tavern was drink. Which is what people did, with considerable enthusiasm, and then they went outside, got into their cars and drove home, not always without incident. Those who lament changing times sometimes forget that times can also change for the better. Most pubs today are brighter and cheerier. There is good food. There are as many women as men. There is live music or, failing that, screens to watch sports on. There is less emphasis on drinking, per se. The pub has become a place you can hang out without drinking a lot, or even anything, and you can probably get a ride home with someone who is sober. The Elmdale and other local institutions have moved a long way in this direction and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a bad thing. The drinking culture has changed and, unlike some other cultural changes, this one is welcome. This is not to say that we should welcome a trend where every pub becomes like every other pub, every neighbourhood becomes like every other neighbourhood and every family looks like every other family. But we, owners and customers, hold the key to avoiding that. The owner is tempted to follow the safe route of imitating other successful businesses. But the enlightened owner knows the key to success lies in creating something original. Then we, the customers can go to this different business and feel original ourselves, until eventually there are too many of us being original in the same way and we have to move on to something different. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not easy, this stuff. As customers we probably donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t insist often enough on originality. We go where other people go, which is one of the reasons that chains thrive and threaten the uniqueness of old neighbourhoods. We could block that by supporting originals and helping them survive.



eeth have been publicly gnashed for several weeks over possible changes at the Elmdale Tavern in Hintonburgh. There is new ownership and Elmdale devotees, not all of whom have ever been there, fear the worst. The â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Dale will become a fern bar, or the modern equivalent thereof. Arugula salads will be served and Michael BublĂŠ will be heard over the sound system. Never mind that no one has actually made any announcement to that effect, the concerns are understandable in a way because what they are really about it is a changing neighbourhood. People have watched this happen elsewhere and what they fear is a kind of homogeneity: the street fills with moderately upscale eateries and stores, patronized by moderately upscale people wearing moderately upscale casual clothes and driving moderately upscale cars. While nicer, it becomes indistinguishable from other moderately upscale neighbourhoods. In a larger sense, the Elmdale has come to stand in for a generalized lamenting of progress. Things change and we like them to stay the way they were, although we do like colour TV, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t we, and email, the odd cappuccino and maybe even back-up cameras in new cars. Not that we wish the Elmdale any harm, having been there, but it is worth remembering that not all change is bad. In the heyday of the Ontario tavern, say 50 years ago, taverns were very different and not always in a good way. There were no windows onto the street. Women were not allowed or were segregated into one section of the place. You couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pick up your beer and walk to another table.

Letter: The Sow Good Sale success Editor: Thank You from The Sow Good Sale! The Community Bible Church in Stittsville is delighted to announce that the Nov. 17 Sow Good Sale was very well received by the community again this year. There was a great response from our shoppers, our volunteers had fun and we even managed to top last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s results! The sale raised profits of just over $11,200, all of it to flow directly to the Seje partnership. This money will allow the village in Kenya to acquire a couple

of acres of land which will be owned by and developed for agricultural use by Seje villagers. The eventual produce from this land is expected to feed local orphans with any excess being sold to help to fund the Gracious Academy school which was established in Jan. 2012. Thank God! And thank you all! Also thanks to our tireless crafters and volunteers. And thanks also to our corporate sponsors who helped us once again to keep our expenses low: Lauraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Your Independent Grocer (Kanata), Rental Vil-

Manchester fire Special to the News


Flames and smoke pour from a home on Manchester Street in Stittsville just after midnight on Tuesday, Nov. 27 as Ottawa Fire Service fire trucks and firefighters filled the street to battle the blaze which caused an estimated $300,000 damage.

EMC news - A midnight fire has caused an estimated $300,000 damage to a home on Manchester Street in Stittsville. Ottawa Fire Service firefighters received a 9-1-1 call at 17 minutes after 12 midnight on Tuesday, Nov. 27, reporting fire in an extension to the Manchester Street home. Firefighters attempted to stop the fire from spreading further into the house but the fire did spread to the homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second floor. The fire caused an estimated $75,000 damage to the homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contents. Two adults and two children at home at the time of the fire successfully evacuated the home. The fire is now under investigation. No cause has been released although the Ottawa Fire Service has stated that the fire appears to have started at the back of the home.

The company already operates three other stations with a capacity of 17 megawatts at Chaudière Falls. In fact, Hydro Ottawa has more than 100 years of experience running hydroelectric plants at the site. One of the existing stations dates back to 1891, and another entered service in 1900.

With this new purchase of three stations from Domtar, Hydro Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hydroelectric generating capacity will more than double to 37 megawatts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; producing enough clean energy to meet the needs of 28,000 households. Another beneďŹ t of the purchase is that the Chaudière Falls site is one of the largest remaining water-power sites available in Ontario, with an expansion opportunity that could see Hydro Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hydroelectric capacity grow to 60 megawatts. The acquisition is a key part of a strategic plan to pursue growth opportunities that beneďŹ t its customers, the shareholder â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the City of Ottawa â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and the environment.

Hydro Ottawa has more than doubled its clean, renewable hydroelectric generation at Chaudière Falls with the purchase of three hydroelectric stations and a 38.3 percent interest in the Ring Dam from Domtar.

In addition to hydroelectric stations, Hydro Ottawa is the majority owner of a landďŹ ll gasto-energy plant at Trail Road, which was recently expanded. This 6 megawatt plant converts millions of tonnes of previously ďŹ&#x201A;ared-off methane gas into renewable energy. In 2011, the company began construction of a new 4.2 megawatt landďŹ ll gas-to-energy facility at Moose Creek Ontario. The new electricity generating plant is a partnership with Integrated Gas Recovery Services and is expected to be operating in 2013.

Anderson meets paramedics who helped him John Curry


As seven year old Anderson Bihler, centre, of Stittsville holds the framed certificate which acknowledges him as an honourary parameci of the Ottawa Paramedic Service, he is surrounded by, clockwise, from left, Ottawa Paramedic Service communications staff member Maggie Labelle, Ottawa Paramedic Service paramedic Matthew DiMonte, Anderson’s mom Shelley Black, Ottawa Paramedic Service advanced care paramedic Rosemary Bentley and Ottawa Paramedic Service supervisor Darrell Drew.

EMC news - Seven year old Anderson Bihler of Stittsville is on the road to recovery from a brain aneurysm and massive stroke suffered suddenly last June. He was able to survive this trauma not only because of the work of neurosurgeons, his own resiliency and the power of prayer but also because of the initial response and work of paramedics in responding to the emergency situation. And so you can imagine the significance of Anderson’s visit to the Ottawa Paramedic Service headquarters on Don Reid Drive off Walkley Road in Ottawa last Sunday morning, a visit not only for Anderson and his mom Shelley Black to personally thank the very paramedics who had given this initial life saving assistance to Anderson but also for the paramedic staff involved to have the opportunity to meet Anderson. Indeed, as Ottawa Paramedic Service supervisor Darrell Drew said during Anderson’s visit, it is unique for paramedics involved in a particular emergency situation to actually get to meet the patient afterwards. This view was echoed by advanced care paramedic Rosemary Bentley, one of the pair of paramedics who transported Anderson to CHEO, who said that the paramedics involved in a medical emergency like Anderson’s usually do not hear about the ultimate outcome for a patient taken to hospital. So, when Anderson visited the paramedic headquarters last Sunday, there were Rosemary Bentley and her fellow paramedic Matthew DiMonte, waiting to meet him and help him tour the facility. They first witnessed a brief ceremony in which Anderson was made an honourary paramedic and provided with a gift bag of paramedic paraphernalia such as a t-shirt, hat, toque and pin. Anderson was then taken on a tour of the paramedic vehicle area, with Rosemary and Matthew serving as tour guides, along with supervisor Darrell Drew. In the vehicle bay, Anderson, who is now thinking that he wants to be a paramedic himself when he grows up, not only got to sit behind the steering wheel of the very paramedic vehicle which Darrell Drew was driving when

he was the first paramedic to respond to Anderson’s medical emergency last June. Darrell, who lives in Stittsville and happened to be in the community on paramedic business that day, was the first paramedic to arrive on the scene, taking over from the school staff who had provided initial treatment. Darrel handled the situation until the paramedic team of Rosemary Bentley and Matthew DiMonte arrived and took over treatment, eventually transporting Anderson directly to CHEO where he received intensive medical treatment, saving his life. Anderson not only sat in supervisor Drew’s vehicle but they together even took the vehicle out of the garage area so that the siren could be engaged. Anderson is like very other kid – he likes sirens. Anderson also got to see and experience several other Ottawa Paramedic Service vehicles during his visit to the headquarters – such as the treatment rehabilitation unit i.e. bus which is dispatched to major emergencies and the emergency support unit i.e. stock room on wheels that also can be seen at major emergencies which require more supplies than normally carried in a paramedic ambulance. Anderson also got to meet Maggie Labelle, an Ottawa Paramedic Service staff member who took the initial 9-1-1 call about his situation and then dispatched the paramedics to response to the crisis. Shelley Black, Anderson’s mom, explained at the initial ceremony at the headquarters that the visit there by Anderson and herself was an important part of their healing process in the whole ordeal. “It means a lot,” she says about the visit and meeting the paramedics involved in Anderson’s initial care. And it obviously meant a lot to the paramedics as well. Paramedics Rosemary Bentley and Matthew DiMonte both spent the whole visit at Anderson’s side, personally powering his wheelchair and helping him in and out of various vehicles. And when Anderson was about to leave, Rosemary and Anderson shared a big hug. See ANDERSON,, page 13

Anderson: Once-in-a-lifetime tour Continued from page 12

And Anderson’s mom Shelley Black gave a warm embrace to both paramedics, Rosemary and Matthew, at the end of the visit, a sure sign that the visit had achieved its purpose of reuniting Anderson with his paramedic care givers and making them all familiar with each other. And the fact that Anderson got a oncein-a-lifetime tour of the Ottawa Paramedic Service headquarters with its garage full of paramedic vehicles – well, that just made the day that much more special and a day that will be

remembered long after his recovery is totally complete. The Ottawa Paramedic Service headquarters is a 100,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility on Don Reid Drive in the Ottawa South Business Park off Walkley Road near the Heron Road intersection. This headquarters is the location from which paramedics are deployed to their daily duty stations/locations across the city and where all paramedic training takes place. All paramedic emergency vehicles are processed and equipped at this facility. The facility was first occupied in 2005.

Early morning lineup for Giant Tiger’s new look

John Curry

EMC news - Giant Tiger in Stittsville has a new look. It’s all been done to improve the shopping experience for customers. As the store’s manager Neil Campbell says, the re-designed interior is now “more eye appealing,” presenting the merchandise better in a more spacious way so that the shopper is better able

to see what’s there. And what’s there is the same great merchandise as before, offering outstanding values and great deals while backed up with the friendly customer service that Giant Tiger has become renowned for over the years. And indeed, it was manager Campbell himself who was there at the store’s entrance for its 8 a.m. grand opening with its new look last

Saturday, greeting the lineup of customers who had begun assembling outside the store at the Jackson Trails Centre plaza beginning at 7:05 a.m. That’s when the first customers in the lineup, Cathy Marshall and her daughter Julie Marshall, arrived and started the line that eventually extended beyond the walls of the building by the 8 a.m. opening. The temperature for the overcast, windy day was

zero but those in line wore winter coats and headwear to keep warm as they awaited the store’s opening. As they filed into the store, Mr. Campbell presented each of them with a $5 Giant Tiger gift card and thanked them for being there. By 8:13 a.m., he had handed out all of the 100 gift cards being given to the first customers visiting the newly renovated store. No Giant Tiger special event

like this would be complete without the presence of Giant Tiger’s mascot tiger and he was there to greet customers and cheerlead. This store makeover is part of a process that will eventually see all Giant Tiger stores converted to this new look. It is meant to enhance the great deals in fashion, food and home needs that customers have come to expect from Giant Tiger while providing more space to shop in a bright, fun environment. For its grand opening with its new look last Saturday, Stittsville’s Giant Tiger had

a tent set up outside the entrance which offered shoppers free Tim Hortons coffee, hot chocolate and donuts. Later in the day, a fundraising BBQ was held with the proceeds to go to the Ottawa Humane Society. Giant Tiger is a Canadian owned family discount store which focuses on providing family fashions, groceries and everyday needs at low prices. Established in 1961 in Ottawa, Giant Tiger has grown to over 200 locations across Canada. It is known for its iconic yellow tiger logo.

Copper jewellery from Dragonfly Dreamers

John Curry

EMC news - It’s a wonderfully idyllic name, Dragonfly Dreamers. But jewellery artist Wendy Southin readily admits that this name for her arts and crafts business was something that simply came out of her head and has no particular relevance to the jewellery and other art that she creates and sells. But it still sounds great and stirs up positive images. She got into producing copper jewellery after attending a workshop in Philadelphia. Although Wendy admits that not many craftspeople are working just with copper, she says that copper jewellery is become more popular as people are starting to realize that copper jewellery can be very attractive. Another plus is that cooper is not as expensive as sterling silver or gold jewellery which have seen a significant increase in price lately. Copper prices are also up a little but not nearly in the range that gold and silver have experienced lately. Creating copper jewellery involves various steps. Some is hammered and antiqued while some is etched. There can be designs involved and textures can be layered. Wendy’s work area includes an assortment of tools that she uses. There are various hammers for creating texture. There are cutting dishes as well which help form the metal. Purchasing one of Wendy’s copper jewellery pieces assures the cus-

tomer of a unique purchase. Wendy says that she might do a piece with a similar design but that no two pieces of her jewellery are ever the same – they are all one of a kind objects, be they necklaces, bracelets or earrings. She is hoping to expand into doing rings as well. And those attending this coming Sunday’s “Uniquely Goulbourn Art & Craft Sale” at the Goulbourn Museum at Stanley’s Corners where Wendy will be one of the craftspeople with their work on display and sale will notice something else rather unique about Wendy and her work. She will be displaying her jewellery in open suitcases, something that she does because she finds that this attracts people’s attention. This “Uniquely Goulbourn Art & Craft Sale” at the Goulbourn Museum this Sunday, Dec. 2 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. is one of a few craft shows in which Wendy participates. She also on occasion holds friendly open house shows at her Munster area home and her jewellery can be found on sale in stores in Carleton Place and Almonte. She also sells online at She can be contacted at 613-838-2355. Besides her jewellery work, Wendy also holds workshops in the paper arts and in mixed media. This Sunday’s “Uniquely Goulbourn Art & Craft Sale” from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Goulbourn Museum at Stanley’s Corners features not only Wendy Southin’s copper jewellery but also a variety of other crafts such

Murder mystery writer at book signing this Saturday John Curry

EMC news - It’s her first novel but it is also the first book in what is going to be the Megan Scott/Michael Elliott mystery series. So you know that author Sandra Nikolai is not stopping with this first e-published novel called “False Impressions” and that more books are coming. Indeed, she says that she has the second book of the mystery series well underway and it even has a title – “Fatal Whispers.” And, in addition, she says that she has a third book already in mind, something that she started years ago. Ms. Nikolai has opted for a series because she believes that readers prefer reading books in a series because they get to know the characters and like to follow them through their various adventures. She herself, as the author, admits that she keeps a virtual library of the characteristics of her characters, including pages of descriptions of them and lists of what they like and don’t like. “False Impressions,” which was published through Amazon last August, features characters Megan Scott and Michael Elliott. Megan, who works as a ghostwriter, comes under police scrutiny when her husband is murdered. Michael Elliott, who is an investigative report-

er as well as a crime writer, also becomes a suspect in the murder. The pair, both in their 30’s, set out to try to solve the murder but run into on barrier after


Author Sandra Nikolai holds a copy of her new murder mystery book “False Impressions” as well as a poster advertising her book signing event at the Gaia Java Coffee Company shop in Stittsville this coming Saturday, Dec. 1.

another. The novel is set in Montreal, a place that the author knows well because that was her home. Now living in Almonte, she admits that she has loved murder mysteries since she was a youngster devouring Nancy Drew mystery books. She feels that “False Impressions” will appeal to anyone who likes reading about crime investigation, sleuthing and police work. She says that there is a “touch of romance” in the book but that the book’s major focus is the solving of the mystery by Megan and Michael. Ms. Nikolai says that the biggest challenge for an independent author like herself is marketing. It takes a lot of time and effort, forcing an author to put writing on the back burner due to this pre-occupation with promotion. She tries to write each day from 9 to 5, although evenings and early mornings are also fruitful at times. “My best time seems to be about four o’clock in the afternoon,” she says about her writing schedule. “It’s a job – you have to look at it as a job,” she says in explaining her strict writing procedure. But she doesn’t mind this, saying simply that “It’s something I love.” She always prepares an outline before starting a book, although she admits that there are always some deviations from the outline when

the writing starts. “False Impressions” is written by Ms. Nikolai in the first person through the eyes of Megan Scott. She prefers to write narration, saying that she finds descriptive writing harder to do. Ms. Nikolai went the self-publishing route because over the past ten years, she had approached various literary agents and publishers with no success. So, about two years ago, she joined a critique group and then hired a professional editor to brush up the text, something that she says that every self-published author should do. She was fortunate that her daughter, Carolyn Nikolai, is a graphic designer and illustrator who formatted the 300 page book and designed the cover, making the e-publishing process easier. Ms. Nikolai is hosting a book signing for “False Impressions” at the Gaia Java Coffee Company shop at the Stittsville Shopping Centre (Shoppers Drug Mart plaza) on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville this coming Saturday, Dec. 1 from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. She will have copies of her book for sale, something that might be a great Christmas gift for that special friend. You will also be able to chat with the author about the book, about e-publishing and about writing in general if you wish. More information about author Sandra Nikolai can be found at .

As is always the case, the ďŹ rst weekend in December brings plenty of Christmas events throughout Rideau-Goulbourn. The easiest way to tell you what is going on this weekend is to map out my Saturday schedule for you. The St. Philip Annual Bake Sale starts at 9:00am and runs until 1:00pm at 127 Burke Street in Richmond. Get there early enough and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll also be able to stop in at Ashton Christ Churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Village Bakefest, on from 10:00am-1:00pm, which will give you enough time to make it back to Richmond for the Santa Claus Parade at 11:00am. Why enjoy just one parade when we have two on the same day? Come by Manotick at 1:00pm for the Manotick Lionsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Santa Claus Parade and while you are in Manotick, enjoy the festivities of our Olde Fashioned Christmas including the ďŹ nal weekend of the Watsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mill Christmas Market. Even if you attend all of these events, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll still have time to drop by the Alfred Taylor Recreation Complex for the North Gower Farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Market annual Christmas Market, which runs from 9:00am-3:00pm. After itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all said and done and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all Marketed and Paraded out, come back to Richmond for the Lighting of the Park ceremony at 6:00pm at the Richmond Memorial Park.

Councillor For Hire It has been a little while since I have done a Councillor for Hire shift. On Thursday, November 29th, you can ďŹ nd me at Bakerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bean on Perth Street in Richmond. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be there at 9:00am and into the afternoon so I hope to see a lot of folks come by and give me a hard time while enjoying this great establishment in Richmond. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m told that I will be serving drinks in the morning so I promise not to spill your coffee.

Richmond Marketplace As though this upcoming weekend wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t busy enough, we have two Grand Opening events taking place in Richmond this weekend. On Friday morning at 9:00am, the new Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Independent Grocer will open its doors. I had a sneak peek inside this beautiful new store last week and I can tell you that you will not be disappointed. On Saturday afternoon, at 2:30pm, the new Tim Hortonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s will have its ofďŹ cial Grand Opening event as well. Hope to see you there!

Light Rail Transit (LRT) After three qualiďŹ ed consortia submitted their bids for the construction and maintenance of Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s LRT project, the recommended proposal will be made public on December 5th, 2012. Following this, there will be a series of showcases throughout Ottawa to display the proposed project designs. The project will ďŹ rst be introduced at City Hall on the 5th and will be on display until December 19th. There are nine showcases in all with the closest ones being at the John G. Mlacak Community Centre on December 10th from 5:00-9:00pm, the Walter Baker Sports Centre on December 12th from 5:00pm-9:00pm and ďŹ nally at Bayshore Shopping Centre on December 14th from 3:00pm-9:00pm.

Corporate sponsors help Lions John Curry

EMC news - The Christmas lights glowing at Village Square Park now are there in all their splendour thanks to the Stittsville District Lions Club. The Stittsville District Lions Club not only purchases replacement lights for the display but also provides the manpower to put up the new lights and ensure that all of the lights are working prior to the formal â&#x20AC;&#x153;turning onâ&#x20AC;? ceremony following the annual Parade of Lights. The Lions Club is helped

in ďŹ nancing the purchase of these new lights that are needed every year by corporate sponsors. In the past, these corporate sponsors were acknowledged by individual signs which were placed on the trees in the park. However, these signs would be blown by the wind and required ongoing vigilance throughout the holiday season. This year, for the ďŹ rst time, the Stittsville District Lions Club went with a ďŹ xed sign on which the corporate sponsors are listed. Produced by Stittsville Signs and Glass which is located next to Village Square

Horticultural Society going strong after 50 years Special to the News EMC news - It’s been 50 years and the Stittsville-Goulbourn Horticultural Society is still going strong. At the Society’s annual general meeting in Stittsville on Tuesday, Nov. 20, outgoing president Catherine Disley outlined a 2012 year that was filled with activities and projects. This included the renovation of the flower bed at the “Welcome to Stittsville” sign at the corner of Stittsville Main Street and Hazeldean Road. This was a collaboration between the Society which planned, purchased and planted the new flower bed and the city of Ottawa which removed the old soil and materials and provided new topsoil and mulch. The planting was completed in late October 2011 and despite last summer’s drought conditions, the plants for the most part survived. Tulips

bulbs have been planted this past October to provide spring blooms in the bed. Another project in 2012 was the planting of a red oak to commemorate the founding members of the Society. This tree was planted at a site which was provided at the Granite Ridge Long Term Care Centre on Abbott Street. This year was the first year for two raised planting boxes located behind the Stittsville Food Bank which had been developed by Stittsville Scouting in cooperation with community partners such as Lowes. These community garden beds were developed to demonstrate how to grow food on a small scale and to provide a resource for community groups to learn and to participate in gardening activities. Any food harvested was available for use by the Food Bank. The Horticultural Society was also involved this year in

enhancing a planting bed at the new sign for Amberwood Village which was erected at the community’s Springbrook Drive entrance. This involved enhancing the planting bed with new shrubs, perennials and grasses. The design and plant suggestions were made by the society, with Marlene Lahey coordinating a group effort that including funding and manpower from the Society, Tara Collier and Bill Moore of Royal Lepage Real Estate, Giant Tiger and Brown’s Your Independent Grocer. The Society continued its efforts looking after the large planters at Village Square Park in Stittsville. For four years now, Marlene Lahey and her helpers have looked after the planting, watering and care of the plants in these planters. The year 2012 also saw the Society hold its annual plant sale and participate in the “Cleaning of the Capital”

spring clean-up. At the annual general meeting, city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri commented that he is impressed with how the Society not only continues to grow but also how it continues to have an impact on the community of Stittsville.

Catherine Disley has stepped down as president of the Society. Lee Boltwood is taking over as president for coming year, with Catherine Disley assuming the role of immediate past president. Penny Horeczy will be the vice-president while Marg Farr will serve as treasurer.

Vivian McLean will be the recording secretary for the coming year. Directors for the coming year will be Rosemary Brummell, Judith Cox, Marg Farr, Susan Hughes, Marlene Lahey, Vivian McLean, Marg Liniset and Doreen Bell who is a lifetime director.

THE CHRISTMAS EXCHANGE PROGRAM For 97 years, the Christmas Exchange Program has given those in need in Ottawa a sense of hope and dignity during an otherwise difficult time of year. Registered families receive a food hamper or a gift voucher to Giant Tiger. Sadly, throughout the 2011 campaign, there was an increase in demand and a shortage in donations. The funds didn’t stretch far enough to help the 27,579 individuals on the list. Over 5,000 families didn’t get the assistance they had been counting on. Already, the need is much higher and organizers are expecting that up to 29,000 individuals will need a helping hand this Christmas. If you can, please help the Christmas Exchange Program this year and share the holiday spirit with those in your community who truly need it. You can sponsor an entire family for $100 or purchase a turkey for a family for just $25. Financial gifts can be made by calling the Caring and Sharing Exchange at 613-226-6434.

DID YOU KNOW? S.S. #12 Mildred Rothwell and her family moved from Saskatchewan in 1934, returning to Stittsville where her father Milton Potter had grown up. Mildred was just turning 13, and the village was not very big then. The school Mildred attended was S.S. #12 on Carp Road, across from The Fair Green, built in 1875. Today the S.S. #12 is a private residence. “When we were at school there was quite a hill behind us-now it’s Crossing bridgeand we could and did go tobogganing. “ “The school in Stittsville only went to Grade 8 and then you either went into Nepean if you had a car, or on the train to Carleton Place if you didn’t, or you stopped school. Some kids only went to school in the wintertime and worked at farm jobs in the good weather.” *Information regarding the “Did you know…” story was taken from the book Stittsville a Sense of Place by Barbara Bottriell, 1998.

EMC news - Like mother, like daughter. Sacred Heart Catholic High School student Johanna Lazaro eventually wants to open her own business. It could be a food truck, a small hair salon or something else – she is not quite sure yet. But a dual credit course that she is currently taking at Algonquin College while still a student at Sacred Heart and also a co-op placement at a local business are helping her move towards achieving her goal. And motivating her as well is the example of her mother, a role model you could say, who operates her own business. Johanna sees how independent her mother is and how much in control of her life she is. “I like being independent,” Johanna says. “I guess I am like my mom.” Right now Johanna, who is 16 years old and in grade 12, has busy days. She travels to Algonquin College two days a week for her “Small and Medium Enterprise” dual credit course. It’s called a dual credit course as it qualifies both as a high school course and as a college course – sort of two for the effort of one. She takes it along with other high school students. She travels by bus to Algonquin College for the course. Despite the travel, she loves it. “I’m so grateful for this,” she says. “I’m just really happy.” Johanna also likes the independence that she experiences with this course. “I feel more adult-like, more independent doing it,” she says. She notes that not a lot of students at Sacred Heart have taken a dual credit course at Algonquin, probably because of the travelling involved. But she sees the course as helping her in her ultimate goal of establishing her own business. And she sees its value in doing this. This course lets you know what you have to do to open a business, she says. Adding to the experience and knowledge about being in business is her co-op placement this year which is at Norcan Security in Stittsville. There she is get-

Johanna Lazaro ting the opportunity to learn about basic office skills including invoicing and accounting. She is learning both phone and office etiquette, how to keep things organized and how to deal with customers. “I am learning a lot of customer service skills,” she says about her co-op placement. She also says that she is enjoying the experience, praising the general manager for letting her do things on her own. “I feel independent,” she says. Johanna says that she sees the connection between her co-op placement and her course at Algonquin which is dealing with being in business. In her co-op placement, she is able to see in practical terms what she is learning theoretically in her Algonquin course. And while Johanna wants to own a business in the future, she also likes art. She admits to growing up in a household where the creative arts and crafts were very much practiced. She herself was involved in arts and crafts when she was younger and she says that art has always been a part of her life, with the house full of what she terms “trinkets of art.” Her parents, she says, are into various kinds

The Christmas Exchange has been a sense of hope and dignity to those in need in Ottawa for 97 years. Registered families receive a food hamper or a gift voucher to Giant Tiger. The Christmas Exchange also coordinated distribution for the Salvation Army’s Toy Mountain program. Last year there were 27,579 individuals on the list to receive help from the Christmas Exchange.

of art from painting to photography to film making. “I was brought up into it,” she says in explaining that she currently does acrylic painting. She did harbour thoughts at one time of being a fashion designer but realizes that the world of fashion is difficult to get into. That’s why she has opted to become a business person instead, while still continuing to appreciate art. And her art may come in handy in the future as one of her goals of being in business for herself is to be able to help out the community. This might take the form of giving food to the homeless if she were to operate a food truck downtown or perhaps giving free art lessons to children. “I just always wanted to give back to the community,” she says. Johanna’s creative talents also extend to music as she plays the guitar, something that she started when she was about ten years old. She does not play to perform but rather just to relieve stress and enjoy herself. One of Johanna’s passions is astrology, palm reading and face reading. A cousin introduced her to astrology a couple of years ago and she now enjoys studying the planets and stars. She also finds that horoscopes are a conversation topic that many seem to enjoy. She does not believe everything that horoscopes and astrology reveal but she finds it interesting, calling it simply a hobby. Johanna has a new interest in that she is getting Yorkie puppy from a breeder whom she has already named “Juno.” She has had dogs before as well as a cat, so she is confident that she will be able to take care of Juno properly and easily. This is Johanna’s first year at Sacred Heart, having attended St. Paul Catholic High School previously before the family moved to Stittsville. “I enjoy it here a lot,” she says about her new Sacred Heart experience. She thought that the transition to a new school in this, her graduating year, would be difficult but she has found that she has been well accepted and that her efforts at school seem to be drawing a lot of positive encouragement.

Gaia performers John Curry

EMC news - A solo singer/guitarist and a trio both performed at the Gaia Java Coffee Company shop in Stittsville last Saturday evening. The program started off just after 8:30 p.m. with the song stylings of Alishia Hiu who performed a handful of songs, accompanying herself on her guitar. This led into a performance by the trio called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sad Guru,â&#x20AC;? comprised on Dan Tarof on guitar and vocals; Chris Baroud on bass guitar and vocals; and Jess Alderwood on drums and vocals. This group, which has been together for two years, usually performs at downtown spots like the Rainbow Bistro and the Elmdale Tavern where the trio will be performing on Dec. 21. For this performance at Gaia Java Coffee Company shop, the trio toned down its presentation, according to Dan Tarof, given the size of the venue. It usually produces a heavier sound that is a lot louder, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sad Guruâ&#x20AC;? performed all original songs in its performance, such as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Change the Worldâ&#x20AC;? which group member Chris Baroud wrote. Chris writes most of the material for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sad Guruâ&#x20AC;? while Dan Tarof does some writing. The performances of both Alishia Hiu and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sad Guruâ&#x20AC;? received warm, enthusiastic applause from the crewd, indicating that their musical offerings hit the spot. More information about â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sad Guruâ&#x20AC;? can be found at the website

EMC sports - The Stittsville Royals battled back from a 3-1 deficit late in the second period to capture a 4-3 victory over the visiting Renfrew Timberwolves in Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League action at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex in Stittsville last Sunday afternoon, Nov. 25. The Royals had battled the Timberwolves to a 1-1 draw after the first period of the game but then fell behind 3-1 before Nate Blankarn scored with only 1:31 left to go in the second period to make it 3-2. Michael Di Bello of the Royals then scored with only seven seconds to go in the period to tie up the game 3-3 and send it to the third period all square. The third period was a scoreless struggle for the two teams until Michael Di Bello again scored for the Royals, this time with only 2:02 left in the game to give the Royals a come-from-behind 4-3 victory. Scoring for the Royals in this game were Michael Di Bello with his two goals with Nate Blenkarn and Scott Barnes adding single markers. Earning assists for the Royals in this game were Alex Hulford and Kyle Drisdelle with two assists apiece while Matt Kadolph, Tim McDonnell, Michael Di Bello and Jake Oliver picked up single assists. The Royals fired 41 shots at the Renfrew goal in this game while Renfrew responded with 39 shots at the Stittsville net. This victory by the Royals over Renfrew last Sunday got the Royals back on the winning track after losing 4-2 to the Ottawa West Golden Knights in a game at the Barbara Ann Scott Arena in Ottawa on Thursday, Nov. 22. Ottawa West led 1-0 after the first period and 3-0 after two periods before finishing up with a 4-2 victory. Tim McDonnell and Dylan Scott scored for the Royals in this game with assists going to Matt Kadolph, Alex Hulford and Ryan Bochert. The Royals had 30 shots on the Ottawa West net while Ottawa West directed the same number, 30 shots, at the Stittsville goal. The Stittsville Royals are now sitting tied for third place in the Valley Division of the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League with a record of 10 wins, 9 losses and 1 overtime loss. With 21 points, the Royals are tied with the Arnprior Packers for third place in the Valley Division, one point behind second place Renfrew Timberwolves. The Perth Blue Wings lead the division with 27 points. The Stittsville Royals next home game at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex on Shea Road is this Sunday, Dec. 2 at 2:30 p.m. against the Arnprior Packers.

Two guitarists at Gaia one live and one in art John Curry


Singer and guitarist Cameron Barr performs at the Gaia Java Coffee Company shop in Stittsville last Friday evening, Nov. 23, as a painting of a guitar player backed up by a cup full of other musicians hangs on the wall beside his performance area.

EMC news - It was life reflecting art. You had guitarist/singer Cameron Barr of Stittsville performing at the Gaia Java Coffee Company shop in Stittsville last Friday evening. And there on the wall, right beside the performance area at the front of the shop and only a few feet from the performing Cameron was a Ben Gatien work of art that depicted a person playing a guitar with a number of other musicians jammed together in a cup sitting on a saucer behind the guitarist. And while Cameron Barr was a sole performer with no other musicians involved and while the only cups and saucers were to be found on the tables occupied by the capacity audience, there certainly were two guitarists at Gaia that evening – Cameron Barr as he accompanied himself as he sang a variety of songs and the Ben Gatien guitarist creation on the wall. Life and art together! This Ben Gatien artwork is but one of a whole series of his work of different sizes that line one wall of the Gaia Java Coffee Company Shop, all of which are for sale. And, indeed, about half a dozen have been sold over the past months. All of these works of art feature musical instruments and musicians of one kind or another. But while the art on the wall is visually musical but is silent, that was not the case for Cameron Barr who filled the coffee shop with his guitar-

accompanied vocals – some slower paced, some fast paced but all passionately sung. It might have been a slow tune about true love or a tune where he also incorporated some whistling but whatever the performance piece, the crowd delivered hearty applause following its completion – a sign of acceptance and enjoyment. Cameron Barr, who combines singing with his finger-style guitar work, currently attends Carleton University. But he has been involved with music from an early age, having taken piano lessons for years before moving on to a teaching role. He also has showed his wide musical interests by taking up both the guitar and the trumpet. Among his musical influences are Canadian singer/songwriter/musician/poet Leonard Cohen; American singer/songwriter Bruce “The Boss” Springsteen who is known for his heartland rock and poetic lyrics; and John Mayer, an American pop and blues rock musician and singer/songwriter. The Gaia Java Coffee Company shop is located at the Stittsville Shopping Centre (Shoppers Drug Mart plaza) on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville. It features Friday musical evenings featuring solo and group performers, including instrumentalists, vocalists and singers/musicians. These Friday musical evenings, which begin at 7 p.m., are free to attend, although early arrival is recommended due to limited seating.

Lights on Stittsville Main Street John Curry

EMC news - The Parade of Lights lived up to its name and then some last Saturday evening in Stittsville. Indeed, a bird or pilot or even astronaut flying high over Stittsville Main Street would have seen what appeared to be a long string of Christmas lights stretched out along the street and its riverbanks of onlookers as a record number of floats and entries, over 50, moved from north to south along the street. And whether it was the vintage 1929 Stittsville fire truck wrapped in lights or the Main Street Community Services float aglow with lights or Adam Kittle’s lights-covered snowblower tractors or the little house on the Coldwell Banker float covered with lights or the No Dump group with lights covering both a

car and the recreational trailer that it was pulling or the lights galore on the Dragonluck Kennels float or even an old military jeep wearing strings of Christmas lights or two lighted angels on the Guardian Angels Catholic School float or the lights covering the Ecole Jean-Paul II float or the glowing lights from the Stittsville Curves entry, each and every float or entry in the parade contributed to this slowmoving parade of Christmas lights moving along Stittsville Main Street. Once again this year, the ReMax float and its hot air balloon flame was a parade highlight, not only lighting up the surrounding darkness when it lept into the evening darkness, bringing forth the awe of the spectators, but also this year spreading a little heat, a welcome by-product on this evening which saw a bitter northwest wind howl

across the parade route. Although it was only minus two degrees on the thermometer, the wind enhanced the cold. But parade watchers were bundled up with toques, winter jackets, gloves and more in preparation for what was really the first nippy night of this November. The windy conditions only caused the giant inflatables on some of the floats to sway a little more than usual. And speaking of inflatables, they ranged from the giant and tall Coca Cola drinking polar bear at the front of the Brown’s Your Independent Grocer float to the couple of large Mickey Mouse figures in Santa suits to the wine bottles which fluttered in the breeze on the Wine Villa float. And what would a parade be without music, whether it was the bagpipes of the highland pipe band which led off the parade or the Christmas

tunes coming from floats like the Re/Max hot air balloon flame entry or the Stittsville Legion’s “Santa’s Workshop” float complete with accompanying music. No Christmas parade would be complete without Santa and there he was, bringing up the rear in the parade, riding high up in the bucket of the Stittsville firefighters’ aerial ladder truck and shouting out “Merry Christmas, everybody” as he travelled along the parade route, with Christmas music also blaring from his fire truck – a far cry from his traditional sled and flying reindeer. There was lots of pedestrian participation in this year’s Parade of Lights, ranging from the Stittsville District Lions Club members who canvassed parade route onlookers for donations for the Stittsville Food Bank to members of the Kanata Stallions hockey team to cheerleaders for Cheer Sport Sharks Ottawa to Stittsville Sobeys staff handing out gift bags to those along the route, 1,500 bags in total. And themes ranged from the spiritually-inspired like on the Pool Builders flatbed float to the floats representing churches like the Community Bible Church, Stittsville Unit-

ed Church and Holy Spirit Catholic Church to holiday themed ones like the Giant Tiger float to ones like the Goulbourn Girls’ Hockey Association float, filled with players wearing the Association’s blue Rockets jerseys. The floats pulled out of the assembling area at the Ottawa Carleton District School Board’s Depot starting at 6:32 p.m., with the last float, the

aerial ladder truck carrying Santa Claus, hitting Stittsville Main Street at 7:06 p.m. This final float with Santa passed through the Stittsville Main Street/Abbott Street intersection at 7:40 p.m. Following the parade, the Christmas lights on the trees at Village Square Park were switched on, marking the arrival of the holiday season to Stittsville.


Young Mathias Simpson has a great seat on the shoulders of his dad Adam Simpson as they get ready to watch the Parade of Lights on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville last Saturday evening, Nov. 24.

‘Art Is Everywhere’ at Westwind Public School John Curry

EMC news - Sure, there’s the world famous Louvre in Paris with its art collection. And don’t forget The Museum of Modern Art in New York City, perhaps the most influential museum of modern art in the world. But on Thursday evening, Nov. 22, it was the second annual “Art Is Everywhere” student art show at Westwind Public School in Stittsville that was where you wanted to be for an art experience. That’s because the school’s gymnasium was transformed into a giant art gallery, featuring more than 600 pieces of art done by students in all grades at the school. Move over, Louvre and Museum of Modern Art – make room for these artists of the future

and their work as displayed in Westwind’s gymnasium, transformed into an art-nasium. And, given the facility, it was not surprising and, indeed, perhaps most appropriate, that a volleyball net strung up in a part of the gym was laden on both sides with student art – ranging from colour wheel mixing to stained glass and facial art to reindeer artwork. Now that’s making your venue work for you. But whether on the volleyball net or on the gym walls which were adorned from side to side with student art or instand alone exhibits scattered around the gym, the student art was everywhere. There were Andy Warhol-style Patterns in Nature, done by grade 2/3 students; there was grade 1/2 Pop Art, inspired by Andy Warhol, the

American artist who was the leading figure in the visual art movement known as, what else, pop art; the 3D Foil Art done by a couple of classes; and what about the aboriginal masks done by grade six students that were lined up on the front of the stage in the gym – Wow! But there was so much more. Doves and poppies dominated the Remembrance Day art done by grade six students. Grade two students had Name Design art on display. And Andy Warhol’s influence showed up again with an artistic representation of his famous soup can art; and on it went. Abstract art, string painting, negative/positive art; colour wheel butterflies by grade one students, Picasso portraits, landscapes, fall trees by grade one students – some-

thing done by everyone and something for everyone. And who could not like and appreciate the table filled with small sculptures made by junior kindergarten pupils – like Baby Snake by Nathanael, Jaguar by Sarika, Funny Pig by Liam and The Happy Face by Nathan. Or what about the model landscapes made by grade three students, done as aerial views showing how the land is being used, with features like rivers and roads. One grade four class had art on display that was inspired by the famous “Squares with Concentric Circles” work of Wassily Kandinsky, a Russian painter who was a pioneer in abstract art. There even was a display with information about Kandinsky. This “Art Is Everywhere” student art show also featured the presence of three guest

artists who were demonstrating their craft and provided information about it. These included Jennifer Anne Kelly, a glassworks artists from Almonte, as well as artists Ana Maria Rutenburg and Diane Dean, both from Stittsville. There was also a silent auction on the go featuring items such as original photographs, cakes and cupcakes, among other things, all donated by families, artists and businesses in the community.

And the event was for more than just looking at art. There was a couple of art activity tables set up at which youngsters could try their hand at an art craft. No event would be complete without refreshments and for this, this second annual “Art Is Everywhere” student art show had the appropriately-named “The Artsy Café” where popcorn, chips, granola bars, apples and more could be purchased.

Kevin Groulx with 67’s Ursula Hiratsuka

played with the Titans for six seasons, finishing as a Minor Midget in the 2011-2012 season. He was playing this season with the Stittsville Royals of the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League prior to being called up by the 67’s. The Ottawa 67’s chose him in the eighth round of the April 2012 OHL draft. He was excited to be chosen by the 67’s as this was the team for which he was hoping to play junior hockey. Although only 16 years of age, Kevin, at 6 foot, one inch and 200 pounds, has a strong physical presence on the ice. With the Stittsville Royals this season, Kevin had scored 10 goals and added 16 assists. He was 32nd in the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League scoring race at the time of his call up by the 67’s. Kevin, a forward, wore jersey number 93 for the Stittsville Royals and has donned jersey number 39 for the Ottawa 67’s.

Way Community Builder Award this year. Owner of Sonya Kinkade Design, she used her interior decorator talents to enhance Kindness Week. Last year she launched Extreme Makeover Kindness Edition, a week long project that aimed to redesign and make over spaces for community agencies that would not normally be able to afford such a makeover. The ďŹ rst project of the Extreme Makeover team was the lobby at the Good Companions Seniors Centre. This year Sonya and her Extreme Makover team took on an even bigger challenge, the Fos-

ter Farm Community House where the focus of the makeover was to provide the best possible learning environment for the children who attend a homework club there. The team created a beautiful and functional space that the youth will be enjoying for years. The United Way Community Builder Award honours Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outstanding volunteers who work tirelessly, passionately and collaboratively to make Ottawa a better place in which to live, work and raise a family. Every year about 50 Community Builder Awards are presented. In addition, the names of these recipients are inscribed on the Wall of Inspiration in Jean Pigott Hall at Ottawa city hall. This Wall of Inspiration is a visible reminder to city residents and visitors of the enduring commitment that individuals

and organizations have made to Ottawaâ&#x20AC;Ś.Just a reminder: donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forger that the new Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Your Independent Grocer opens at the new shopping area at the corner of Perth Street and Shea Road this Friday, Nov. 30 at 8 a.m. â&#x20AC;ŚA Gingerbread Family Christmas Party is being held on Saturday, Dec. 8 at St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Anglican Church hall on Fowler Street with people invited to drop in at any time between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. The cost is only $15 per family which includes receiving a pre-assembled gingerbread house, refreshments and crafts.

Holiday grief workshop Special to the News

EMC news - Grief is neither simple nor straightforward. Indeed, grief is multi-faceted with various dimensions including emotional, physical and behavioural. In its simplest terms, grief is reaction to loss. It is very much a natural response as the emotional suffering one feels when something or someone you love is taken away. And so grief is not easy to deal with for many. This is particularly true during the holiday season when memories can flood back and this normally happy time of year becomes painful. “Grieving Through The Holidays” is a two hour workshop that is being held at St. John’s

Anglican Church in Richmond this Sunday, Dec. 2 from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m. Grief educator Ian Henderson will be leading the workshop which is meant to be an opportunity to join others who are also feeling the emotional stress of the season. With Mr. Henderson’s advice, those attending will learn about insights that will help a person live through it all. There is no cost for the workshop but a suggested donation of $10 is encouraged. For more information, please contact Rev. Michel Dubord at St. John’s Anglican Church at 613-838-6075. St. John’s Anglican Church is located on Fowler Street south of Perth Street in Richmond.

Amy Deboer paints one of the winter street banners which will be unveiled at this Saturday’s Lighting of the Park ceremony at Memorial Park in Richmond and then will be hung for the winter along McBean Street.


This little twelve week old fellow is so lucky... he was just rescued in a nick of time from being shredded by the big garbage machines at the dump site... thank God the operator noticed him and stopped the machine. He came out with a fractured leg.. many bumps and bruises and a concussion. He has now weekly cast changes for his growing leg and trying to get mobile again. Once he is all healed up he will be looking for a loving family to call his own. If you are so inclined we would gratefully accept donations towards his hospital bills ... our website has a donation page to assist you, please mention the name “Sundance”. Thank you very much. For adopting this or any other cat contact GWEN at 613-258-2622. Check out the Website for available cats and more info. Looking for volunteers and foster families to help out with cat care. We are a registered charity.

EMC news - The Goulbourn Jubilee Singers are making it easy for you to attend its 35th anniversary concert coming up in December.

Tickets for the concert are available now by calling 613-813-8414 or 613-825-3357 or by logging onto www.gjsingers or www. .

Jubilee 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.

Mary Cook’s Memories It had been cold and damp, and suddenly the snow came. It was going to be “no ordinary winter,” Father said at supper that night. We five children were delighted. That meant snowmen, stamping out big wheels in the yard for a game we played back in the thirties and sleigh rides. Lots of sleigh rides. It also meant snow white fields and the ruts in our long lane would be covered and our five-kilometre walk to Northcote school would be easier. It was also the year our two Montreal cousins, Ronny and Terry, were with us. They came in late summer and never went home. The winter had only been with us a few days when a church supper was planned. It would take more than a heavy snow storm to cancel something as exciting as a church supper back then. Father had covered the sleigh with straw and put two bales of hay close to the seat at the front, where we could sit with our backs against them and our feet stretched out before us. Of course there wasn’t enough room for seven of us to sit with our backs against the bales, which suited my brothers just fine. They would much rather be wrestling and trying to throw each other off into a snow drift. So my sister Audrey, young Terry and me got to sit with our backs to the bales. It was a bitterly cold night for early winter and Mother had heated bricks on the Findlay Oval all afternoon. Audrey, Terry and me were snuggled down under a heavy quilt and the hot bricks, wrapped in several layers of the Renfrew Mercury, were at our feet. Soon the heat from the bricks could be felt right through our galoshes. The supper was at the Lutheran Church and Father was heard to lament that it was full of people from the United Church, who had come for a free meal. Mother told him to hush up and reminded him we weren’t above going to what-

Nothing cast aside in Depression

ever was held at the United Church on many an occasion. By the time the supper was over and the social end of the evening came to a close, it was time to head for home. By this time the bricks were ice cold, but Audrey sat with Terry and me on either side of her, with her arms around us and the blankets right up to our chins. We hardly missed the bricks at all. As always, when we got home, it was my sister’s job to fold up the blankets and take them and the bricks into the shed. “The bricks are gone,” she yelled. Father ran his hands over the straw covered sleigh to make sure they hadn’t been buried in the confusion of settling us down for the trip home. They had mysteriously disappeared. “You can be sure one of the Uniteds took them,” Father said. Mother said that was the silliest thing she ever heard of -- stealing bricks. Who would want old bricks when you can get them for a few cents at the brick yard in Renfrew? It was little Terry who, after coming awake, said with a sleepy voice, “I know where they are,” and then quickly nodded off as he was being carried into the house. Mother gently shook him awake. “Alright Terry. Where are the bricks?” “They are all along the road. They were cold and no good no more so I throwed them away.” We went to church early the next morning. The three brothers walking along the road, looking for and picking up the five or six bricks half hidden in the snowbanks. Even though they cost next to nothing, even a few cents back in those Depression years were not to be casually thrown away on the side of the road and forgotten.

Chili casserole with polenta is tasty,healthy Foodland Ontario Special to the News

EMC lifestyle - In keeping with nutritional guidelines, this chili has a healthful proportion of vegetables to meat, yet it’s every bit as satisfying and flavorful as traditional chili con carne. Chili may be frozen in individual portions for reheating in the microwave. Transfer thawed chili to bowl and top with polenta wedge. Microwave at medium-high (70 per cent) power for two minutes, then at high for two minutes or until heated through. Preparation time: 30 minutes Cooking time: two hours and 15 minutes Servings: six Ingredients: * 1 lb (454 g) lean beef * 2 tbsp (25 ml) all-purpose flour * salt and pepper * 4 tsp (20 ml) vegetable oil * 2 cups (500 ml) coarsely chopped onion * 2 cloves garlic, minced * 1 small sweet red pepper, seeded and chopped * 1 cup (250 ml) finely diced carrots * 1 cup (250 ml) coarsely chopped cabbage * 2 tbsp (25 ml) chili powder * 1 tsp (5 ml) dried oregano * 1/4 tsp (1 ml) each cinnamon and red pepper flakes * 1 can (796 ml) whole tomatoes * 1 can (398 ml) fancy red kidney beans, drained * Polenta (recipe follows) Polenta: * 3 cups (750 mL) water * 3/4 cup (175 mL) cornmeal * 1 tbsp (15 mL) butter * 1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt

Preparation: Trim away any fat and cut the beef into 2.5 centimetre pieces. In shallow dish, season the flour with salt and pepper. Add the beef and toss until flour is taken up, then set aside. In large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the oil over medium heat. Cook the onions, garlic and red pepper, stirring, until onions are translucent. Add the carrots and cabbage and cook, stirring, for two minutes. Transfer to 2.5 litre casserole dish; stir in chili powder, oregano, cinnamon and red pepper flakes. Set aside. Heat the remaining oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook meat in batches, turning to brown on all sides, and then add it to the casserole. Break up the tomatoes and stir them into the casserole. Cover and bake in an oven heated to 325 F (160 C) for 1.5 hours or until meat is tender, stirring twice during cooking. Taste and season with salt, if required, and pepper. Stir in the beans. The recipe can be prepared to this point, cooled, covered and refrigerated for up to two days or frozen. Thaw overnight in refrigerator before continuing and increase final cooking time by 10 minutes. Cut the polenta into wedges; arrange on top of chili. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until the polenta is a light golden brown colour on top. Polenta: In small saucepan, combine water, cornmeal, butter and salt. Let it stand for 10 minutes. Bring to boil, stirring constantly, then reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring frequently, for 12 to 15 minutes or until spoon drawn through mixture leaves a line. Pour into nonstick 1.2 L round cake pan. Let cool and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or when completely cold, cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days. NOTE: Microwave recipes tested in a 700-watt microwave oven. If your oven differs, cooking times may vary.

EMC news - Christmas cakes make a great Christmas gift as well as a great personal family treat. Once again this holiday season, the Stittsville District Lions Club is selling Christmas cakes. There are pre-sliced white Christmas cakes selling for $8.50 as well as dark Christmas cakes in a tin, selling for $15. Or if Christmas cake is not your thing, the Lions do have shortbread cookies for sale as well at a cost of $6 per package. The Christmas cakes are for sale at both the Scotiabank and the Royal Bank in Stittsville. Lions Club president Beth Lewis

is planning on being at the Stittsville Villa Retirement Community on both this Friday, Nov. 30 and on Friday, Dec. 7, selling the cakes. Christmas cake is a type of fruit cake served at Christmas time in many countries around the world including the United Kingdom, the United States, Germany and Japan. It can vary from being light or dark to crumbly moist to sticky wet to spongy to heavy and on and on. The real common denominator around the world is that Christmas cakes are really good and are very popular, not matter what the variation. These Christmas cakes being sold by the Lions Club fit the bill â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they are really good.

EMC news - You will feel a little like you are in Hawaii at the annual Christmas bazaar and bake sale at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church this coming Saturday, Dec. 1. That’s because the hot luncheon that will be served at the event is featuring Hawaiian meat balls and rice. These will be no ordinary tasting meat balls. They usually are cooked with a combination of sauces including pineapple syrup and that’s what gives the meat balls their traditional sweet and sour flavour. What a treat! These Hawaiian meat balls and rice will be served with salad, dinner roll, dessert and beverage, all for just $10 for adults and $5 for children. There will also be a special children’s menu available. But these Hawaiian meat balls are just one of the highlights at the bazaar and bake sale. There will be a selection of baked goods and preserves for sale. You will also be able to help out families living in poverty in Uganda while also acquiring a unique Christmas gift at this bazaar. That’s

because handmade paper jewellery made by women in Uganda and marketed throughout the world by the volunteer organization Caring Hands will again this year be on sale at this bazaar. Caring Hands helps families in Kampala, Uganda who are living in poverty. One of the ways in which Caring Hands helps these families, generating income for them while providing them with a sense of self-esteem in creating these items, is in providing an outlet for jewellery made out of recycled paper made by the women of these families. It is this jewellery that will be on sale at the Christmas bazaar at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in Stittsville this Saturday, Dec. 1. It not only makes for a very special and unique gift but your purchase will help the women of these families in Uganda emerge from the poverty in which they live.

The Tabitha Foundation is a benevolent trust, founded in 1994 to support aid efforts begun and organized by Janne Ritskes. Our field activities are centered in Cambodia, whose people were decimated by a regime which promoted enforced starvation, mass executions, slave labour and wholesale dislocation to such a degree that the social, moral and economic fibre of the country was left in tatters. The integrated development initiatives include work in health care, education, sanitation (water, sewage), housing, small business and co-operatives. These efforts enable the poorest of the poor to improve their health status, rebuild shanties into homes, have their own toilets, clean water, and drainage systems, reconstruct roads, develop their own small businesses or become workers in cottage industry programs and learn to work together as a community. The people of Cambodia have endured severe poverty for the past 30 years— since the Pol Pot era. In that era everything was destroyed: family, social structure, infrastructure, spirituality. The resulting trauma of that period has left the people with a feeling of hopelessness and futility. Cambodians believe they are to blame for their situation—that somehow they deserve their lot. Tabitha-Cambodia works with the poorest members of the community, encouraging them to save and work their way out of poverty. Many poor Cambodian families have no house and virtually no possessions. Despite this, most generate a meager weekly income. Tabitha helps these families to develop a vision of a better life and encourages them to join the Savings Program. Tabitha’s Savings Program recognizes the inherent desire of people to take control of their own lives, allowing them to decide on their own needs and assisting them in achieving their goals. Joining the savings program is a giant step towards rebuilding trust; Tabitha recognizes and rewards that trust in the form of payment of 10 percent interest on their savings. Tabitha places no stress or risk on a family by accepting any amount, no matter how small, allowing even the poorest to participate in the program. Please visit the Tabitha Bazaar on Friday, November 30th and Saturday, December 1st at Wool-Tyme, 190 Colonnade Road South, Ottawa, Ontario.
