EMC news – A West Carleton man died on the job last weekend. Robert William “Rob” Ayliffe suffered a fatal electrical shock while attempting to repair refrigeration equipment on the roof of a fast food restaurant in Ottawa. The incident happened Sunday night, Feb. 24, at about 11 p.m. Emergency crews were held back at the Meadowlands Drive and Prince of Wales Road McDonald’s Restaurant from getting to Ayliffe until power to the equipment was shut down. The 39-year-old Ayliffe lived in MacLaren’s Landing. His nearby parents’ home was the meeting place for mourners this week. His mother Lori remains stunned by the news, and has yet to be told in detail what took place. “It is,” she said on Wednesday morning. “I don’t

know anything.” Ayliffe, a father, worked for Shouldice Mechanical in Carp. No one from the company was available for comment this week. The provincial ministry of labour is investigating. Ayliffe’s daughter is Kate Hannah; her mother is Sharron Kenney; his parents are Bill and Lori; he was predeceased by his brother Matthew, and is the grandson of Annette Ayliffe-Grimsdale. Friends are invited to visit at the Garden Chapel of Tubman Funeral Homes, 3440 Richmond Rd. – between Baseline Road and Bayshore Drive – on Friday, March 1, from 1 to 3 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m. Funeral service will be held at St. Thomas Anglican Church, Woodlawn, on Saturday, March 2, at 11 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations to Royal Ottawa Foundation for Mental Health or a charity of choice would be appreciated.

EMC news – The loudest applause of the evening went to Dustin Therrien; it was a standing ovation for the Cheshire Cat owner whose business gutted by fire less than a month before the Kanata Chamber of Commerce Awards gala on Feb. 21. Therrien’s pub won restaurant of the year in the West Carleton division at the 14th annual awards. He reassured Cat fans that it will be back in fall, saying the former one-room schoolhouse walls will figure into the new building, while adding humorously that damages aren’t all that severe. “As you may have heard, we are undergoing major renovations right now,” he said. Pub regulars recently held a fundraiser for the 36 out-of-work Cat employees, he said, raising $33,000. “It’s not really a pub. It’s everybody’s pub.” Therrien was up moments later accepting the award for new business of the year in the West Carleton division. His wife, Crystal, was busy working at Alice’s Village Café in Carp so couldn’t make the event. Therrien joked that he now works at the new restaurant. “It’s a great little spot, total local influences,” he said, “and I’ll be there because I’m unemployed now.” The couple recently bought the Twisty Cream, just down the road in the village and plan to serve upscale ice cream this summer. At the night’s end, when two grand prizes were called out, it was Therrien who went home with the $3,000 Sens Suite.

Carp’s Alfie shares citizen of year award Jessica Cunha, Derek Dunn derek.dunn@metroland.com

EMC news – For the first time, two dedicated and hardworking community members won the Citizen of the Year award at the Kanata Chamber of Commerce 14th annual People’s Choice Business Awards. “This year, we will do things a little differently,� said Greg Weatherdon, president of the chamber, before the awards were handed out. “When evaluating the contribution to our community from each of the nominees, it became clear that with such differing candidates, it would not be possible to bestow just one award.� Kanata’s Kathleen Ellis, member and current treasurer of the Rotary Club of Ottawa Kanata Sunrise, and Carp’s Daniel Alfredsson, captain of the Ottawa Senators, shared the honour, which has been given to only one nominee in the past. The pride of the Ottawa Senators club, long-time captain Daniel Alfredsson, couldn’t make the event to hear kind words from the presenters about giving his limited time “generously� to area causes. He was called an “invaluable part of this community� and “so much more than number 11 for the Ottawa Senators.� Alfredsson’s team played the night of the gala, so club spokesman David Chadala shared a message instead. “It’s an honour to receive the citizen of the year award for our community,� he read. Alfredsson has appeared in a video supporting You Can Play, a campaign dedicated to fighting homophobia in sports. He is also associated with You Know Who I Am, a Royal Ottawa Foundation campaign to dispel the stigma surrounding mental health, an issue that has touched his family. Alfredsson has won an

Olympic gold medal for Sweden; made the NHL all-rookie team in 1996; played in six all-star games; was named top penalty-killer in 2008; and took home the King Clancy Memorial Trophy last year. In the past, Alfie has said how much he enjoys living near Old Carp and Huntmar roads; that although his kids attend school in Kanata, they, like all kids in West Carleton, take the Friday off school during Carp Fair. He can be spotted with his kids in west end rinks on a semi-regular basis, and enjoys taking in the Carp Farmers Market from time to time. Ellis, who joined the rotary club in 1999, thanked her friends, family and rotary club members for their support along the way. “I had a tremendous amount of help,â€? she said. “The motto is service above self ‌ the community becomes what we put into the community (and) we live in the greatest community in the world. “We live in a caring, loving community.â€? Ellis, who has volunteered her time to a number of organizations and non-profits, was described as “exceptional, devoted and a thank-you angel,â€? said emcee and television broadcaster Kurt Stoodley of the testimonials received by the Chamber in favour of Ellis.

“The dedication of Kathleen Ellis is extraordinary, and her variety of endeavours is incredible,� he said. “In 2004, Kathleen founded Knit-wits,� said Stoodley. “Since then this dedicated group has knitted teddy bear sweaters for the Sens Foundation, toques for newborn babies at the QCH, and blankets and quilts for seniors at nursing residences, toques and mitts donated to CityKidz Foundation and the Mission, and blankets and baby clothes to the Salvation Army.� Knit-wits also collects toys for Toy Mountain and nonperishables for the Kanata Food Cupboard. “Kathleen’s dedication to helping others has touched the lives of many in our community,� said Stoodley. “Her personal belief is that ‘You always get back more than you give’ and she has lived by that.� The third Citizen of the Year finalist was John Curry, editor of the West Carleton Review’s sister paper the Stittsville News. Curry, who won the award in 2009, was honoured with a plaque for his contributions to the Goulbourn community. The gala, held at the Brookstreet Hotel on Thursday, Feb. 21, honoured the best and brightest businesses in Kanata, Goulbourn and West Carleton.

Community support key factor in rebuilding family farm Carleton Holsteins hosts open house for community, Ontario Holsteins AGM Sherry Haaima Sherry.haaima@metroland.com

EMC news – It was the perfect opportunity to show just how far community support can go. Brothers Glenn and Dale Dean opened the doors of Fairburn Farm – Carleton Holsteins Tuesday and show-

cased the farming operation that is up and running strongly following a tough few years. In October 2010, a silo collapsed and destroyed the barn. Just over a year ago, the milking herd was moved into the new barn, which was built in the summer of 2011. The cows had been moved to neighbouring Hilltone

Farms and Zieview Farms. Then, in July 2011, a tornado tore through the property, destroying the structure used to house the heifers. The heifers were moved to Sneddenholme Holsteins. “We will be forever grateful to these families for their support,” say the Deans. Fast forward to February

2013 and the Dean brothers, along with a supporting cast of family, friends and supporters, are ready to greet visitors and show off their rebuilt operation. The sixth-generation farm at 4868 Hwy. 17 consists of 120 total head of cattle with 55 milking cows. Glenn’s wife Leah said the family can’t say thanks enough for the help they’ve received. The family was beyond pleased to be showcasing the operation.

“It was a lot of hard work, but we’ve had lots of community support,” said Leah. And though the open house was put on as part of the Ontario Holsteins annual general meeting, the family wanted to open its doors to the community as well to show just how their help and support has paid off. “It’s been tremendous,” said Leah of the steady crowd through the door. “There have been loads of people. We opened it up to the community because the community was

who helped us rebuild.” The Deans are very grateful for the help they’ve received, reiterated Glenn. “When we had all the trouble people just came forward and helped,” he said. The new, large, bright barn is working out great. “It’s excellent, very userfriendly,” said Glenn. He enjoyed the chance to speak with visitors to the open house. “It’s great to see everybody out,” he said. The key to successful family farming, according to the Deans? See LOVE Page 14

ATVs on roads accepted at meeting Councillor, residents open to expanded network in future Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - Though blowing snow may have kept the crowds away, the residents who did come out to discuss a local ATV pilot project seemed satisfied with the plan. The Nation Valley ATV Club based in North Dundas has been working with the City of Ottawa to allow all-terrain vehicles to drive on some shoulders and unopened road allowances in Osgoode Ward. Currently, ATVs in Ottawa are only allowed to cross roads at a 90-degree angle, as per the province’s Highway Traffic Act. However since 2009 the act has allowed municipalities to pass exceptions to that rule as they sit fit, which Greely resident Kris Gough has been trying to accomplish in Ottawa for several years. Now a two-year pilot project is set for a vote at the city’s Agricultural and Rural Affairs Committee on April 4. The plan would allow club members and other licensed ATVers to use 8.2 kilometres of shoulders and unopened road allowances, including shoulders along Cabin Road between Doyle Road and Manotick Station Road and Manotick Station Road between Cabin Road and Springhill Road. The majority of the proposed trail network follows unopened road allowances connected to Dozois Road, Blanchfield Road and Third Line Road. Gough would like trail users to be able to park at the Red Dot Cafe parking lot and use Second Line Road to access the trail. ATVs would have year-round access to the trails, except during spring thaw and hunting season, and would only be allowed on the trails between 30 minutes before sunrise and 30 minutes after sunset - even during the shortest days of winter. “We don’t want to ATV at night because we can’t see the track,” Gough explained, noting that snowmobilers can use their machines at night because their preferred path is straight and flat. The plan would only apply to standard ATVs without modified exhausts to avoid noise concerns, and speed limits would be enforced on shoulders. Generally, in areas where cars drive 100 km/h ATVs must drive 50 km/h. In 50km/h zones, ATVs must stick to 20 km/h. Phil Edens, a traffic engineer with the city, said the proposal is viable if proper precautions are taken to keep everyone safe. He wants the city to only approve use of shoulders that are two metres wide, and to install No Stopping signs so that parked farm machinery and other vehicles will not force ATVs into the roadway. He would also like the ATV club to post their own signs to show trail users where to go and warn drivers to watch for the off-road vehicles. “We want (drivers) to have the expectation that there may be an ATV,” Edens said.

Constable Neil Lockwood with the Ottawa police marine, dive and trails unit, who also stopped by the meeting for more information, said he has no immediate concerns about the proposal, as long as ATV users respect the rules the city decides to put forward. “We’ll just wait for it to come into place and then we’ll enforce what we have to enforce,” Lockwood said. “It’s no different than snowmobile trails.” Rideau Forest resident Harry Joyce lives in the subdivision at the top end of the proposed network, along Dozois Road. He was hesitant to give the plan his full approval, but said he was satisfied with the precautions the city and club had taken to make it workable. “My general impression is that it ought to be possible to work something out that pleases everyone,” Joyce said. “The concern is that that (portion of trail south of the subdivision) is where people walk and go with their kids.” He was also concerned the ATVs might try to hook up with a new snowmobile trail that appeared this winter along Dozois after Hydro One cleared the ditches. The curfew, however, is a welcome provision to avoid noise problems. “It seems to be reasonable as long as peoples’ feelings are considered,” Joyce said. FUTURE TRAIL EXPANSION

Osgoode Coun. Doug Thompson said that, if all goes well, he foresees an expansion of approved ATV trails in other rural wards. “If it works, and I think it will, then we can expand,” Thompson said. “I’m open to that. I think we’ll know better after the first year of this. We’ll have a good summary of how effective the bylaw was.” Thompson said that ATV ownership is increasing - Gough estimates 12,000 ATVs to 7,000 snowmobiles in the city - and it makes sense to start regulating their use now. “If we don’t do something we’re going to have major problems,” he said. “This way we have rules and regulations and the police are involved.” Fitzroy Harbour resident Brian Wilson would love to see ATVs allowed across the rural parts of the city. “I’d like to see ATVs allowed wherever snowmobiles are. It would be an easy fix,” Wilson said. He uses his ATV to travel from one farm to another using the shoulders, and he’d like to use it to get to the river or go to a friend’s place as well. While he supports the project in Osgoode, he’d like to see more. “That’s not helping us in West Carleton,” Wilson said. “How about the individuals out there who want to do this?” Feedback about the pilot project can be sent to ruralaffairs@ottawa.ca until March 14.

A move to Cardinal to run a truck stop brought MacDougall to eastern Ontario, from where it was only a matter of time until the search started for a restaurant in need of new owners. Initially drawn to a potential location in Kemptville, the pair found the Constance Bay restaurant and their fate was sealed. “We just loved the place,� said Michelle as she prepared for another onslaught of curious and repeat customers. “We decided to take it right away.� And the response from the community has been nothing

but positive, she indicates. “We have been busy since we opened our doors last Wednesday. Some people have been back a few times already.� Included in the happy crowd of repeat customers is federal Liberal leadership hopeful Karen McCrimmon and husband Rob who expressed delight with the place. “We’ve eaten here a few times. The food and service have been excellent,� she said as they waited for their table. Other customers were equally impressed. The new owners have taken a direct route to success by offering a simple, well-prepared menu that satisfies most appetites. “This may no longer be considered fine dining in some aspects, but people have been very welcoming to us,� said Michelle. The menu includes a range of tasty appetizers that features a soup of the day, or chicken wings, buttermilk marinated chicken fingers, tacos, nachos, quesadilla, poutine on fresh cut fries, garlic bread and a variety of salads. Sandwiches and wraps are the middle of the menu, featuring a hand-pressed sixounce sirloin burger, or a Captain Burger with housebattered fish. Chicken burgers can be crispy or charbroiled. There is also a steak sandwich served as a traditional Quebec Bavette on a Hoagie bun with grilled onions and mushrooms. Wraps include a club with chicken breast, or crispy

Ceasar or a veggie wrap with balsamic reduction and goat cheese. All sandwiches and wraps come with fresh cut fries, salad or soup. Main entres feature a panfried chicken breast or a prosciutto wrapped chicken breast smothered in seasonal mushroom sauce. The beer battered fish and chips comes with a large piece of hand-battered fish while the Catch of Day features whatever the chef has for the unique daily offering. “Darryl is originally from Cape Breton so he is a big fish lover,� said Michelle. “We plan to expand on daily specials too, with local foods such as fish, elk and wild game. That will be our fine dining to complement our menu.� There is also a selection of pastas and homemade pizza to round out the menu. Fully licensed, the bar serves wine as well as draught and bottled beer. For those who get up early, the Greystone is offering a full breakfast menu from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. daily, except Monday when the eatery is closed. Saturday and Sunday breakfast is served to 2 p.m. Eggs Benedict, omelettes, breakfast wraps, waffles and French toast are complemented by a wide range of toast and meat options with lots of fresh coffee or herbal tea, and juice.

“After hearing all the evidence from all sides, we will make a determination as to whether or not there was an infraction that took place,� said Lisa Murray, spokesperson for the AGCO. If an infraction has been uncovered, another hearing will determine the suspension’s length, said Murray. “You are always worried, but we are very optimistic,� said Charlebois. “I think its going reasonably well.� “The only downside is that it’s not a real court,� she

added. “There is not burden of proof upon the other side.� If the Point is found guilty of an infraction, Charlebois does not expect to receive the full 60 days of suspension. She is, however, ready for the possibility. “We have to live with it,� she said. “Make the best of it and be ready to open again as soon as it’s over.� The Point has received suspensions in the past. “It’s been more than seven years,� said Charlebois. “We’ve had a perfectly clean record for seven years.�

EMC news - Ottawa is regarded by many as one of the safest cities in the world, but that’s no reason for seniors to let down their guard. While the Ottawa Police Service will always be available to respond to crime, they need your active participation to help prevent crime. Police can’t do it alone; get informed, get involved and make crime prevention part of your everyday life. Together, we can continue to build a safer Ottawa for all. Would you know what to do if: • You were asked to pay for something that you "won"? • A suspicious stranger came to your door? • You arrived home and found your door or window open? • A member of your own family or a caregiver left you feeling threatened?

• Incidents of vandalism or graffiti were on the rise in your neighbourhood? • A so-called bank official asked for your credit card information over the phone? This is just a small sample of the concerns expressed by Ottawa seniors. The following information provides a good start for raising awareness about crime prevention issues specific to seniors. Contact your local Community Police Centre for additional crime prevention tips. Stay safe - be alert: • Be street smart - be aware of your surroundings and know who's around you. Be wary of isolated spots, like basements, laundry rooms and parking lots. Always try to walk in well-lit areas and try to never walk alone. Ask a family member or a neighbour to escort you. • Know what constitutes elder abuse. Whether it is physical, sexual, financial or mental abuse or neglect, these actions

A committee dedicated to honour Irish workers who helped built the canal plans a celebration in Lowertown for March 14 which will officially commemorate the many Irish immigrants who helped build the famous waterway. sweat and tears it was hard but they built it something and I think that once the heritage committee saw there was interest they began to change their minds.â€? On Nov. 2, 2012, Parks Canada ofďŹ cially announced it would formally recognize the construction workers who built the canal. McKenney credits Dooley as one of the individuals who made this upcoming event possible. “A lot of people have done a lot of work to make this happen, but if it weren’t for Kevin I don’t think we would have ensure that forever more the workers will be recognized for their work,â€? McKenney

said. Two plaques will be placed along the canal: one located at Jones Falls in Elgin, Ont., and one located at the Corktown footbridge in Ottawa. The plaques will be large with two interpretive panels that will tell the story of how the canal was built in both ofďŹ cial languages. The evening’s celebration on March 14 will be part of the annual Irish Festival and will welcome the mayor and representatives from Parks Canada and the Irish Embassy. Doors open at 7 p.m. with ďŹ nger food to be provided by the organizers. A cash bar will be available.

EMC news - After years of work to get recognition for the sacriďŹ ces of Irish workers who helped build the Rideau Canal, a celebration to mark the ofďŹ cial commemoration will feature fun, laughter and good old fashion tune or two. The Irish Society of the National Capital Region and the Ottawa and District Labour Council are sponsoring the event full of music and poetry to help mark the very special moment for Irish descendants, who will receive two plaques commemorating their contribution to the building of the Rideau Canal on March 14 at St. Brigid’s Centre. “It may sound corny, but a lot of us sort of appreciate if we close our eyes on that day, we will all feel those workers looking down on us saying ‘thank you,’â€? said Sean McKenny, president of the Ottawa and District Labour Council. The Rideau Canal was built between 1826 and 1832, with thousands of immigrants, including many from Ireland and France, laying the foundations of the world-famous waterway. It is estimated more than 1,000 workers died of malaria during the construction of the canal. In 2006, the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada was asked by an adhoc committee made up of members from the Irish Society of the National Capital Region and the Ottawa and District Labour Council to consider the contributions of the Irish workers for designation. Over the past six years, the nomination has been denied twice.

Voters deserve chance to weigh in on Wynne

P

remier Kathleen Wynne came to town last week, offering Ottawans their first chance to take the measure of Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new leader. That first impression may be important, as the province may very well have an election on its hands this spring, something that should be embraced, albeit grudgingly, by the electorate. Why embraced? It comes down to the fact Wynne is looking to take Ontario in a fundamentally different

direction from the one we were following under Dalton McGuinty, despite the claims made by Tim Hudak and the Progressive Conservatives to the contrary. That fact alone means voters need the opportunity to approve a new mandate. McGuinty, while he focused on deficit reduction to a certain extent following his 2011 election victory, spent much time looking to implement and expand programs such as full-day kindergarten. He will also be remem-

bered as the premier who introduced the feed-in tariff program, harmonized the provincial sales tax and gave a 30 per cent rebate to postsecondary students. He was a premier focused on programs and ways the province could help out its citizens. Wynne, based on the speech from the throne delivered on Feb. 19, is looking to focus the provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s efforts on â&#x20AC;&#x153;fiscal responsibility, economic growth and increased employment.â&#x20AC;? In

practice, this doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to be a drastic departure from what came before: FIT was designed to boost the economy, helping students can lead to more jobs and freezing teachers salaries is one way of taking fiscal responsibility. But the premier undoubtedly brings her own ideas to her new office and those ideas deserve to be vetted by voters, who should have the chance to compare Wynneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan with those being offered by both the PCs and the New

Democratic Party. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have a much better idea of what the Liberals are all about under Wynne in the coming weeks when the budget is presented at Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Park. It should provide a detailed account of how her government plans to reach its new goals. Andrea Horwathâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s NDP has pledged to support the minority Liberals on the speech from the throne, so Wynne will survive to table the budget.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s better that we head to the polls sooner than later, as the province is facing a number of challenges that really canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait to be addressed: the decline of manufacturing and the transition of the wider economy, deteriorating infrastructure, rising health care costs, all under the shadow of a massive deficit and ballooning debt. It would be much better for voters to choose from among the latest visions for Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future, rather than be stuck with a new path chosen by Liberal party faithful.

Prime downtown property CHARLES GORDON Funny Town

T

hose were wonderful scandals coming out of the Senate, with people allegedly claiming expenses they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t deserve because they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t live where they said they did, and so on. For a while, there was the faint hope that the thing would finally be abolished, but for various reasons too constitutional to mention, that is very unlikely to happen. Too bad, as it would free up a beautiful piece of real estate in the heart of downtown. Still, it is pleasant, although maybe not too realistic, to consider alternate uses for the Senate chamber, once the Senators have made their deliberate move to the exit. Many years ago I proposed in print that the Senate chamber would make an excellent basketball court. The dimensions are about right, there is parking nearby, plenty of security and the visitorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; gallery has lots of good seats. You might ask, why basketball, when hockey is our national sport? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good question. The difficulty is that the dimensions of a hockey rink are too large for the space available. Further, the taxpayer might balk at installing ice-making machinery in Centre Block. Finally, where would they put the Zamboni? For these reasons, basketball made more sense. However, the proposal was somehow not seized upon by public officials. Also there was a complete lack of public excitement and eventually, Scotiabank Place was built. Too bad, because it would have made a nice basketball court and years of embarrassing scandal could have been avoided. So we move on. What other uses could be made of the space now occupied by the Senate?

Well, what about the National Portrait Gallery? Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll remember that it was once intended to move into the old United States embassy building across from Parliament Hill, then the government changed and the museum faded from sight. We could use a good portrait gallery. The Senate would have lots of space for it, because remember there is more to the Senate than just the chamber. Once the Senate is abolished, all those senatorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; offices will be vacant, along with the Senate committee rooms and the place where the senators store their overcoats and shuffleboard equipment. Acres and acres of portraits could go in there. Some of them could even be of senators. The ones who live in Ottawa should not be hard to find to take their pictures. Even some ones who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t officially live in Ottawa might, unaccountably, be close by. For the generations yet unborn, we would want a permanent photographic record of those who graced the institution and explaination of what they did. Some might oppose putting the Portrait Gallery in the Senate on the grounds that our need for historical portraiture will be covered in the conversion of the Museum of Civilization to the Canadian Museum of History. So other possible uses need to be explored. The suggestion that the Senate be turned into a downtown casino will not be dignified with a reply. However, there is nothing to stop the Senate from becoming what most of Canada is becoming â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a condominium. Some of those offices suites could make nice apartments, once they are thoroughly cleaned to get rid of the smell of pork. The Senate chamber could be made into a party room, instead of a political party room. The idea certainly has merit, since having more people live downtown has long been one of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goals. It could help put more people onto Sparks Street, as the condo owners emerge from Parliament Hill in search of somewhere to party, or at least get a sausage. The big lawn would be an attraction, the view is very nice. All that needs to be done is to get the neighbours in the House of Commons to keep it down.

WCSS students learn to lead

West program helps student find career path To the editor: I wanted to take the cooperative education program because I wanted to see if being a nurse would be the right career path for me. Taking co-op at West Carleton Secondary School made me realize that becoming nurse is what I really want to do. I met lots of new people and talked and asked questions to other nurses, which really interested me and educated me more on becoming a nurse. Since my co-op was at a hospital I became very familiar with terms and different wings. My placement was at the Almonte General Hospital Day Hospital Program. This program is a rehabilitation program for elders who have survived strokes and heart attaches and more. It educates them on what they can do to help them get better and it also has a physiotherapy part where they go to work out and gain strength. I got to work with patients and help them with little stuff; for example working on their fine motor skills because sometimes after having a stroke they loose theses assets. Co-op really made me realize that nursing is the right career path for me.

I loved helping patients and clients with anything. Although at the start I was nervous and shy I really warmed up to everyone. I feel that I have improved on my responsibility skills, patients, and communication skills. These skills really helped me through co-op and will help me in everyday life. Hearing nurses’ experiences and where they went to school helped me lots in choosing where I want to go to school and what type of nurse I want to become. I have applied to St. Lawrence and Algonquin for practical nursing. I have to go through different steps to become a RN nurse, which is bad and good. It is bad because it takes more time but it is good because once I become a practical nurse I can go to work right away and still go to school to become an RN. Overall I really loved my co-op experience, and I recommended it to anyone who is uncertain about their career path. I am so happy I took coop especially at Almonte Hospital because it is such a great place to work everyone mad me feel so welcome.

EMC news - Students are preparing to lead the way during this year’s fourth annual Leadership Camp. Students at West Carleton Secondary School will gather at the high school for a weekend of leadership activities during Leadership Camp 2013, on March 1. In charge of the planning of the camp are 21 Builders from grades 11 and 12 who have been busy planning since June of last year. The camp will be a chance for the students at West to meet new people, and step outside of their box. As Grade 12 Builder Katie Baird said: “You get to meet a lot of new people, so the Monday when you come back from school you know everyone in the hallway who went,” Baird added, “[The camp] helps you get over communication barriers” and teaches you skills that you can apply in school. It’s an event that truly benefits the students, allowing them to learn important skills such as

teamwork, responsibility and trust, all by doing fun activities and playing games. However, it has been a struggle for the builders to pull it all together. With work-to-rule affecting the teacher’s ability to provide help with the planning of the camp, the builders have had to work hard on their own in order to make it happen. In the past, teachers were a part of the team, helping with the planning and doing little things that the builders now realise is their responsibility. Along the way students have received some help from the administration at West, but have still found there is a lot more work to do without the teachers help. It has been a stressful time for the builders. But despite the hiccups, they have had more interest in the camp than ever before, with over 100 students signing up. Though the process of planning is different from past years, with the builders hard work and the student s of West Carleton enthusiasm for the camp, it is expected to be a success.

OPINION

The most vicious killer of all EMC lifestyle - On Family Day I was at the National Arts Centre talking about local animals. My display consisted of mounted creatures including a Fisher. Many children and parents asked me if Fishers were cruel and vicious, and killed for fun. I replied that they, like all predatory animals, were not, and simply killed in order to eat. According the Oxford Dictionary, cruel infers taking pleasure in anotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pain. Vicious has several meanings including inclined to be dangerous, vile, or addicted to immorality. Predatory animals have always interested me, and I have devoted much time to searching for them. As a result I have had myriad encounters with foxes, bears, and wolves. Although I have met a few female bears anxious to protect their cubs, I have yet to meet a predator that could be deemed cruel or vicious. Killing in order to eat endows predators, which are wild and elusive, with neither of those qualities. However, recently I did meet a vicious killer. I was atop a rise on our property that offers a grand view of a marshy creek and a corner of our lake. The comforting silence was

Michael Runtz Natureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Way suddenly shattered by distant rifle shots. A minute passed and then a much closer explosive crack made me look toward the lake. There I was shocked to see a Coyote lying lifeless on the ice. I heard the roar of a snowmobile and soon one drove into view. It stopped near the Coyote and the driver dismounted, rifle strapped to his back. I wanted to talk to him, but he was more than a half kilometre away. I hurried back down the trail. As I finally neared the lake I heard a cacophony of roars and yelps. Two hounds came bounding over the snow with two ATVs close behind. The dogs had been used to drive the Coyote onto the ice where the fellow on the snow llmobile chased and shot it. I was sickened and angered

by this senseless killing and by the way in which it was done. I called Ministry of Natural Resources to see if any laws had been broken. They told me to call the municipality, which I did. They passed me on to the OPP, who in turn passed me over to the local police, who then referred me back to the OPP. I eventually learned that no laws had been broken unless the hunters had been trespassing, but even then only the property owner could lodge a complaint. There was nothing I could do. That night I heard the mournful howls of a lone Coyote, quite likely the mate of the one that was slaughtered. It is unconscionable that coyotes and wolves can be killed year round, and in this manner. No animal deserves to be treated this way. Our conservation laws need changing and the needless killing of large predators for sport must be stopped. Predators are not cruel and vicious creatures. To find an animal that takes pleasure in killing, and is dangerous, vile and immoral, we need only to look within our ranks. The Nature Number is 613387-2503; email is mruntz@ start.ca.

MICHAEL RUNTZ

This coyote was a victim of malicious prejudice. Property owners have the legal right to shoot any coyote that wanders onto their land.

Restaurateurs score big at awards gala Continued from front

Meanwhile, a Dunrobin mainstay won retail business of the year and small business of the year in West Carleton. Heart of the Valley won the former for its crafts and gift shop on Dunrobin Road. The Heart and Soul Café, located on the same property, took home the latter. “It’s a family affair,” Sarah Bowen said, looking to mother Jodie, father Jim, and brother Matthew. “All the family is involved now, and some of our roles have changed. So to win, it’s pretty cool.” The 14-year-old restaurant is one of the few places where everything is made from scratch, by hand, to order. Jodie praised her daughter for taking over the 25-year-old arts and crafts shop. “She runs it almost exclusively. I’m so proud of her.” MORE WINNERS

Other businesses to win the West Carleton category include the Diefenbunker for tourism business of the year, and Yoga & Tea Studio for health and wellness business of the year. “We really feel deeply rooted in our community,” said Kelly Eyamie, of the Diefenbunker. “We are looking for partnerships, and west

Love of the job is key to farming Continued from Page 3

“You really have to have an interest and the desire to farm,” said Glenn. “If you don’t love the job, it’s work.” LOVE OF FARMING

Dale Dean agreed, saying it’s important to enjoy what you’re doing. A focus for the Deans has been good cow health. “If you treat them well, they’ll treat you well,” said Dale. He enjoyed the open house, an opportunity to reunite with friends and colleagues. “I’ve seen a lot of people I haven’t seen for a long time,” he said. Glenn’s area of expertise is the cattle. He strives for quality conformation – using cow families with deep pedigrees and bulls of high genetic potential. Dale’s focus is field management of the 300 acres. Feed requirements are all homegrown. The brothers operate the farm along with their mother Helen. Their father Bill was also very active in the operation until his death in the summer of PHOTOS BY SHERRY HAAIMA/METROLAND 2011.

Rocking it out at Carp Memorial Hall Patricia Leboeuf pleboeuf@metroland.com

EMC lifestyle - Members of the Huntley Township Historical Society gathered in Carp Memorial Hall last Thursday to listen to a presentation on the geological wonders of the area. As a longtime member of the society, ge-

ologist Roger Thomas was the perfect host. “I knew enough about it to do it,” he said. Thomas shared tidbits about the formation of stones, minerals and fossils as well as the way the different topographical regions are created. Attendees learned how this history affected the township throughout its history. The rock within the Carp Ridge was clocked at 900 million years old, the Nepean sandstone is about 490 million years old while the soft clay of the Champlain Sea was formed 10,000 years or so ago. This created the majority of the rock bed in the area. The nature of this formation allows for some interesting discoveries such as fossils. Large algae colonies, spanning over three feet in length, are immortalized in an old quarry located on Howie Road. These fossils have been well preserved as the quarry’s owner ordered his machine operators to be very gentle with the specimens in order to maintain it, said Thomas. “They left the rock exposed as far as I know,” he added. To avoid trespassing charges, people must always ask property owners for permission before exploring any area for stones or minerals, warned Thomas. Amateur geologists are also encouraged to visit the Surveyor General’s Office located at 615 Booth Rd in Ottawa. Typological maps illustrate the locations of mineral pockets. This will help facilitate the process of rock collecting. “It tells you where everything is,” said Thomas. There are also geology clubs which people can join for information and companionship. Bancroft also opens its borders in August to host a four day Annual Rockhound Gemboree. “If you are into it, you could probably meet somebody there to go rock collecting with,” said Thomas.

EMC-Metroland editor among finalists for citizen of year Derek Dunn derek.dunn@metroland.com

EMC news – Among three finalists for citizen of the year at the 2013 Kanata Chamber of Commerce gala last Thursday night was editor of the West Carleton Review EMC’s sister newspaper in Stittsville. John Curry, editor of the Stittsville News EMC since 1975, was among the prestigious award’s seven nominees. In the glamorous Brookstreet Hotel banquet hall it was announced that Curry, along with NHL player Daniel Alfredsson and Rotary Club of Ottawa Kanata Sunrise member Kathleen Ellis, was a finalist. “That was a tremendous honour – to be on that list,” Curry said after the award was split between Alfredsson and Ellis. “To be one of the finalists, you can’t put that kind of honour into words.” Curry was quick to add with a laugh that he “just missed out” on playing an NHL all star game with the superstar captain of the Ottawa Senators who lives near March Road and Huntmar Drive. GOULBOURN VOLUNTEER

He was named a finalist for work he has done in Goulbourn. Curry won the citizen of the year in 2009 as a Stitts-

ville resident. Curry has contributed to his community in many ways. He has held elected office for 25 year; first as a Commissioner and then chair of the Goulbourn Hydro Electric Commission and then as the Ottawa Catholic School Board trustee from 2000 to the present. He was a member of the Local Architectural Conservation Advisory Committee, chair of the Goulbourn Sports Wall of Fame Committee, and a member of the Goulbourn Museum Committee. He was also the inaugural chair of the Parish Council of Holy Spirit Church in Stittsville, and even wrote a book on the history of Richmond (Richmond on the Jock) in 1993. He also edited and produced the Sunday bulletin for Holy Spirit Catholic Parish every Sunday, and chaired the committee which compiled the 150 year history of Catholic education in Ottawa. He served on the board of directors of Friends of Hospice Ottawa from 2008 to Dec. 2012, as well as serving on various committees associated with community groups or projects. Curry was impressed with this year’s ceremony, which at 18,500 votes had a record participation rate. Always quick to bringing the conversation

The blessing of four seasons Accidental Farmwife EMC lifestyle - It’s Canadian to talk about the weather. And it’s Canadian to complain. We don’t even realize we are doing it. It’s just our go-to for conversation topics, to comment or complain about amount of precipitation, beyond-average temperatures, wind levels and intensity of sunshine. Well I guess we should be grateful for our four distinct seasons, as we are never without something to talk about. Ten years ago this month, I left Canada for Asia. It was already ‘springtime’ there, if you can call it that. Immediately I noticed something was missing. Yes, the patches of grass in the park were greening up, and the trees were budding. But that springtime smell was missing. In Taiwan, the damp chill of winter, at times dropping to 5 degrees, is quite uncomfortable as most homes do not have central heating. You huddle around a portable heater at home, and plug in another one under your desk at work. Spring comes and goes quietly, and one morning you wake up to a blinding sunrise and sweltering 50 degrees of humid heat. Summer arrives with fanfare and cymbal clash in Taiwan. Canada’s seasons have rhythm. One fades gracefully into the next, with perfect timing. If you live in the same part of Canada for a period of time, your body will learn the rhythm. You will learn to expect the next season—to anticipate its arrival. Can’t you just feel spring waiting around the corner? Springtime on the farm means lambing.The first of our sheep is starting to grow an udder. She is “bagging up”, as the expression goes. By the end of the month we will have a lambing room full of ewes—ten to a pen, forty in all. There they will fatten up on hay, sweet feed and mineral, and wait out the impending arrival of eighty to ninety little ones. I love lambing season, but it is probably our most exhausting season of the year. It’s the only real ‘work’ we have to do on the farm. When the animals are outside, coming and going and seeking food and shelter when they need it, it’s very simple to put a big round bale up every few days. The only daily task is refilling the water troughs. During spring lambing we attend and often assist births, we feed and water and clean and attend more births. For a solid month the lambs are born, and for a few more weeks they find their corners and bond into their little family units. Sometimes we get mothers who have no maternal instincts. As nature would have it, however, there is always another mother willing to take on surrogates. We just have to find them. Lambing is about

watching and waiting, experimenting and monitoring progress. Last year we had a few to bottle feed – lambs whose mothers for one reason or another were unable to feed them. Some of the smart lambs learn to steal from other ewes who are more than willing to feed someone else’s young. Then comes the day when everyone is old enough and secure enough to be released outside. When we are confident the lambs know their mothers, and will not lose them in the great outdoors when they are hungry or thirsty, we slide the big barn door and slowly open the pen gates. The ewes are usually the first ones out, but they are reluctant to leave their young so they often come running back in. The most efficient way to encourage an exodus is to grab an armload of lambs and step out into the sun. The ewes will come screaming after you, looking for their young. Once outside, the lambs and ewes blink at the sunshine, and sniff the air. Ahhh. Fresh, green grass. That first day is one discovery after another. Sweet new grass, salty mineral soil and rocks, sun and shade, hills and valleys. The oldest lambs start springing across the field, joyful and exuberant. The ewes breathe grateful sighs of relief, and seem to walk proudly as they lead their young to pasture. We still need to monitor, just a quick sweep late afternoon, to ensure no one is left behind in coyote territory when the herd comes back up to the barn for the night. It’s a busy time of year, but I love it. One tiny miracle after another, for weeks on end.

EMC lifestyle - An area dental hygienist has continued her tradition of community service with a third free dental clinic in as many years. Registered dental hygienist Patty McComb participates in the Gift From the Heart program, run by independent dental practitioners and designed to reach out to those who are not able to financially afford vital dental hygiene care. For the third year, McComb welcomed clients from three to 18 years old at the clinic on

Madawaska Boulevard. The event was another success. The clinic was open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and saw many children of all ages and produced many, many healthy smiling faces, said McComb. All were very appreciative, she added, and for some it was their first visit to a dental hygienist. McComb expressed thanks to those who helped make the day a success. “I got great support from my daughter and husband, plus a good friend and colleague,

Laurie Lachance, RDH,” she said. “Also, a huge thank you to Sweet n Sassy Co. for their generous donation of yummy treats.” McComb works from several locations including 43 Madawaska and now at The Hive in Carp, next to Alice’s Village Café. She has a mobile service that allows clients to receive dental hygiene services in the home, retirement home or long term care facility.

Police offer free home security inspection EMC news - Home security inspections allow community members to take an active role in making their homes less susceptible to criminal activity. Based on proven crime prevention principles, residents learn how to make their homes safer. At your request, police representatives visit your home (house, condo, apartment, etc.) to provide a safety audit - assessing ways to make your home safer. The audit is based on a checklist, and participants are provided with a booklet that identifies safety improvements, provides crime prevention tips and promotes other crime prevention initiatives offered by the Police Service. To arrange a free Home Security Inspection please contact your local Community Police Centre: West Carleton March 613-236-1222 ext 2982. Vacation security tips With March break just around the corner you may be planning a trip away or an extended vacation. Here are some helpful hints to consider before you leave. • Inform trusted neighbours or relatives of your vacation

plans and where you can be reached. Leave a key with them so they can check your house. • Have a neighbour park a car in your driveway, and pick up your mail, newspapers and flyers. • Ask a neighbour to put one of their garbage bags in front of your house on collection day. • Don’t order merchandise for delivery while you are away, and cancel regular deliveries. • Don’t talk about your vacation plans with strangers or service people. • Use your work address on your luggage tags so potential criminals won’t know where your empty house is. • Secure or remove valuables and firearms from your home. • Leave your house with a lived-in look. Use automatic timers to turn on lights and radios. • Have your lawn cut or snow removed while you are away. • If you come home and see a door ajar or a window broken, call the police immediately. NEVER enter the dwelling. If it looks suspicious - don’t hesitate - call police.

GE workers ratify new deal EMC news – Workers at the General Electric plant in Arnprior have received modest wage increases in a new deal approved Sunday, Feb. 17. They are among Canadian Auto Workers members who overwhelmingly approved a new three-year collective agreement that includes wage, benefit and pension improvements. The 750 employees involved work in GE plants in Arnprior, Peterborough, Toronto and Burlington/ Stoney Creek. Workers approved the agreement by 97 per cent in voting Feb. 16. “We won significant investment

to turn Peterborough’s 100-year-old facilities into facilities that will now reflect the technology of 2013,” said Jerry Dias, assistant to the CAW president. “Winning this commitment was the most significant feature of a strong new agreement with G.E.,” Dias said. Wage increases, including cost of living allowance, are two per cent in the first year, 2.5 per cent in the second and three per cent in the final year. In addition, there were significant pension gains, says the union. A major pension gain is the ex-

tension of supplemental pension payments to ensure bridge pensions continue until retiring workers qualify for the delayed Old Age Security pension announced by the federal Conservatives. In addition, gains were made in a new vision care plan along with improvements in dental and other programs. The Arnprior plant, which makes zirconium tubing, is one of three G.E. Hitachi Nuclear facilities, with the other two located in Toronto and Peterborough. The Burlington and Stoney Creek plants are service depots.

Learn a life-saving skill EMC news - According to recent polling by the Canadian Red Cross, the majority of Canadians say they would recognize the signs if someone were experiencing a cardiac emergency, but fewer than half say they would be able to do something to help. “In half a day you can learn the skills necessary to save a life,” says Don Marentette, national manager of first aid programs with the Canadian Red Cross. “Only 15 per cent of Canadians say they are confident they can

help someone suffering from a cardiac emergency, and that’s just not enough.” A Red Cross CPR course teaches important life-saving skills, including how to recognize signs of breathing and circulation emergencies, how to call for help, perform CPR, and how to use an AED. The Red Cross is the only national training agency to include AED training as a mandatory component. For more information or to find a course near you, visit www.redcross.ca/firstaid.

Sk8er girls Ice Show 2013, presented by the West Carleton Skating Club last weekend, was filled with talent and entertainment for the friends and families at the Carp rink. Reaghan Atkins, photo at left, was smooth and light on her feet during her performance. Meanwhile, above photo, Kirsten Neudorf worked hard all year for her moment in the spotlight.

Fresh off her impressive performance, photo at left, is Alicia Stel, who is congratulated by coach Janet Hill-Tobali. Stel was shivering from the cold at W. Erskine Johnston Arena, and appeared a little nervous before her solo, but from the moment she stepped on the ice to the moment she stepped off, she was brimming with confidence. Jenna Moussa, above photo, gets a few last minute words of encouragement from her dad, Sammy, before performing Sunday afternoon, Feb. 24.

EMC sports - Three members of the Arnprior High School wrestling team competed in Kingston on Feb. 21 at the Eastern Ontario championships (EOSSAA) and two qualified for the provincial meet. John Dolan and Darren Mayhew of Fitzroy Harbour were each in draws of seven people. Dolan in his second year of high school wrestling had a tough first match, which went two rounds with him being pinned at the end of second round. His second match was against a wrestler from Athens, Ontario. Dolan scored points in the first round but was unable to come up with a win. He won his third match to give him a fifth-place finish for the day. Coach Kevin Mayhew said that Dolan was close to winning his first match and his skill on the mat has improved greatly from last year. There were no opponents for Rebecca Dolan at EOSSAA, which gave her an automatic entry into OFSAA in Guelph. She will be continuing to train to prepare for Guelph. There could be at least 20 other girls in her weight class from all over Ontario. Darren Mayhew had a bye to start the day. His second match was against a boy from

Snowmobilers take to the WC trails for charity Patricia Leboeuf

pleboeuf@metroland.com

EMC news - The West Carleton Snowmobile Trails Association’s 2013 Annual Charity Poker Run raised $1,000 for the Snowsuit Fund. The annual event is in its second consecutive year and has seen participation increase of 30 per cent. The poker run was initially set for Feb. 2, but mild temperatures and rain caused organizer Scott Hamilton to postpone the event. “We had that whole week of rain,” said Hamilton. “It just destroyed the trails. It was too dangerous on the corners with the ice.” Two weeks later, the temperature was ideal and the event began on Feb. 16.

The run began at the Prior Sports Bar and Restaurant in Arnprior, ended in Almonte with several stops peppered along the way. Stamps were collected, poker was played and lucky snowmobilers were privy to a bevy of prizes donated by local businesses. Ultimately, the Snowsuit Fund won the biggest hand. “I thought it was a nice fit,” said Hamilton. “It’s helping out children in need that can’t afford a winter coat.” Hamilton hopes that the next year’s event will be even bigger. “Basically we want people to come out and enjoy the West Carleton Snowmobile Association trails, have fun and help out a great cause,” he added.

SUBMITTED BY SCOTT HAMILTON

There was a Family Day Trailside Barbecue on Family Day Monday. The West Carleton Snowmobile Trails Association gave away hotdogs and hot chocolate. Organizer Scott Hamilton said the group had many sleds drop in over the day.

Safe snowmobiling starts on with preparations at home: OPP EMC news - The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) and the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC) remind riders that a snowmobile can quickly take you away from areas where services, communities and emergency assistance are easily accessible or available. Responsible snowmobilers take charge of their own safety and well-being by preparing their sled, gear and equipment before the first ride of the

season. In addition to getting properly trained and knowing the law, there are other factors to consider when getting ready for safe snowmobiling: Service Your Sled - Avoid breakdowns that can leave you stranded by having your sled professionally serviced before your first ride. Carry a Repair Kit - Ensure that you have either the sled manufacturer’s tool kit or one of your own on board, including owner’s manual, spare

belt and spark plugs. Inspect Your Gear and Equipment - Make sure that everything still fits and works properly, and that nothing is missing before you head out. Prepare for First Aid Pre-assembled first aid kits can be found at outdoor stores and online and so can information about first aid courses. Get a Survival Kit - Any unexpected day or night spent out in the cold will be easier with assistance from a good

survival kit, found at outdoors stores and online, including information about winter survival courses. Go High Tech - Devices like GPS, cell phones, satellite phones and SPOT Personal Trackers can be very useful in avoiding or dealing with emergency situations. Contact Companions Snowmobiling is more fun with riding buddies, and safer too, so avoid riding alone by getting in touch with friends

and family who can join you on the trails. Review Safety Tips - As experienced as you may be, it’s always smart to renew your familiarity with your sled’s safety manual and the Safe Riders messaging on the OFSC website ofsc.on.ca/ safety. The OPP is committed to saving lives on Ontario’s highways, trails and waterways through the reduction of preventable injury and death.

Initiatives are developed and delivered through the Provincial Traffic Safety Program. Visit opp.ca. The OFSC is committed to proactive leadership in promoting safe, responsible riding, on and off Ontario snowmobile trails, by building safer snowmobiling knowledge, attitudes and behaviours through rider education, safety legislation development and enforcement.

Local wrestlers do well at Rumble EMC sports - Some members of the Arnprior Wrestling Club, including Kyle Findlay of West Carleton, and wrestlers from the Walter Zadow Public School team completed at the Renfrew Rumble Tournament Feb. 16. Coached by Arnprior District High School Grade 12 student Rebecca Dolan, Laura Stellato and Kevin Mayhew of Fitzroy Harbour, all of the wrestlers came home with a medal. For Jonah Pekley, Lexy Horner and Owen Ellis, this

was their ďŹ rst tournament and the coaches were impressed with how well they did considering the fact that they had only ďŹ ve practices (snow days caused some lost practice time). Both Owen and Lexy had matches that lasted over seven minutes because points were not scored in the normal twominute rounds and had to go into extra time for two out of three rounds, eventually winning those matches. This was something to see because scoreless rounds do

not happen very often at any tournament. From Walter Zadow Public School, Owen Ellis and Brian Scheeler placed ďŹ rst in their weight classes. Jonah Pelkey placed second and Lexy Horner placed third. From the Arnprior Wrestling club, John Dolan placed second while Kyle Findlay was third. They both showed how far they have come with their skills since competing in this tournament last year.

Sledge hockey coaches share their expertise EMC sports - Todd Nicholson and Harvey Lord, developmental coaches and former members of Canada’s national sledge hockey team, were in Calabogie to introduce this sport to injured solders and veterans as part of the Canadian Association for Disabled Skiing – National Capital Division’s Winter Sports Clinic. Seven Canadian and three American soldiers participated in the event as well as about 20 ski instructors. “Many goals were scored, a number of sledge collisions occurred, prosthesis came off, and some egos were bruised, but all had a great time,” said Nicholson, a West Carleton native and Canada’s former sledge hockey captain. “In reality, we are always looking for new recruits, both those with disabilities and able bodied, and venues such as this give us the opportunity to do just that.” The Winter Sports Clinic, in its third year, is a week-long event held at Calabogie Peaks with a primary focus on skiing and snowboarding. Other activities such as evening Mountain Cat rides, adaptive swimming, and this year sledge hockey, took

place. A spousal program complements the clinic and has received positive feedback. “Although the main focus is skiing, this is not our primary objective,” explained Clay Dawdy, Adaptive Snowsports director for the Calabogie program.“Rather the focus is to regain self-confidence and self-esteem post injury and to develop peer and mentor relationships that will benefit the soldiers.” Positive feedback was received from the American contingent at the clinic. Chris Werhane, adaptive adventures co-ordinator from Colorado, attended 15 clinics this season and said “the Calabogie Peaks facility and mountain was the most adaptive user-friendly that he has attended this year.” Sarah Wade, the chief organizer for the United States participants, said she looks forward to coming back next year with a much larger USA military and instructor contingent. Hockey sledges were donated by Renfrew Community Living, and Greater Madawaska Twp. literally rolled out the “red carpet” to allow for wheelchair access onto the reserved ice at the Calabogie rink, Dawdy said.

Providing youth with the skills to succeed News Canada

EMC news - There are a growing number of Canadian children playing hockey and municipal arenas are seeing lots of action this winter. With more than 565,000 young Canadians playing hockey in minor leagues, one can’t deny the national sport’s popularity. With almost 24,000 players last year and close to 34,000 this year, the atoMc and ÉquipeMcDo programs are thriving in ice rinks across Canada. Launched last year by McDonald’s Canada and endorsed by Hockey Canada, atoMc Hockey and Équipe Mcdo support atom teams around the country and bantam teams in Quebec respectively. The programs go beyond traditional sponsorships by providing players with pro-style jerseys and socks while stressing the importance of teamwork. Thousands of teams across Canada have benefited from atoMc Hockey and Équipe McDo, like the Waterloo Minor Hockey League.

“Over and above the sport, hockey has an impact on our youth’s lives. We want to teach them teamwork, collaboration, perseverance and discipline. Since being part of the atoMc Hockey program, our players have developed a strong sense of pride and teamwork, which are evident in the performance on the ice, as well as at school. When we met with them again at the beginning of this year’s season, these skills and their enthusiasm were still there,” said Adam Elliott, a coach from the Waterloo Minor Hockey league. The atoMc Hockey and Équipe McDo programs have also given some lucky teams the chance to meet with program ambassadors, Olympic gold medallists Drew Doughty (LA Kings), Marc-André Fleury (Pittsburgh Penguins) and Tessa Bonhomme (Canadian Women’s Olympic Team). “Hockey has taught me a lot about the value of teamwork and it’s great to see so many kids playing the game and learning what it means to be a part of a team,” said Drew Doughty.

Spring colours help take chill off winter

EMC lifestyle - Although Father kept telling Mother there was a lot of winter left, she refused to believe him. She was sure she saw a robin. Father said it was a blackbird. I was never sure if Mother hated the winter because we were locked in for weeks, only venturing as far as church and Briscoe’s General Store, with trips into Renfrew – only if it was necessary – or because she remembered milder weather this time of year in her beloved New York. But by the time February started to wane, Mother’s patience with the snow, the bitterly cold nights huddled together in the drafty kitchen to keep warm and the frostcovered windows all took their toll on Mother’s usually happy mood. Even though the days were getting longer, the evenings stretched out before her and I could tell she ached for spring and warm nights, when she could open the windows and feel the cool country air coming in. One Friday evening she announced that even if the snow came down in buckets, she was going into Renfrew in the morning and yes, I could go with her. The old Model T had long since been up on blocks in the drive shed, so Queenie would be hitched to the cutter for the 20-kilometre trip into town.

Mary Cook’s Memories BY MARY COOK

Mother’s peddling eggs, butter and chickens waned during the winter, but that day, under piles of blankets, she was prepared to visit her warm-weather customers so that she could have what was called “egg money” back then, because there were things she needed. She had written out a list and we dressed like mummies, with hot bricks at our feet. We set out, just Mother and me, for the long cold trip into Renfrew. Queenie’s breath seemed to freeze in the air and the cutter bit deep into the snow along Northcote Side Road, but the fur rug, wrapped tight to our chins, kept us warm. Mother was in much better spirits than she had been all week, for which I was grateful. We headed right for Walker’s Store after Mother got rid of the chickens, butter and eggs, and her little change purse bulged with coins from her sales. She seemed to know exactly what she was looking for and we headed to the back

of the store, pausing for a few seconds on the big iron grate in the middle of the store where heat from the coal furnace puffed up warm air. Here was where the bolts of materials were stored, on long shelves, like books in a library. Mother said she was there to look at the Dan River cottons. The sales clerk pulled the first pile down off the shelf and Mother asked if she wouldn’t mind bringing down the pile next to it. I knew exactly what she was looking for. This pile had several bolts of Dan River plaids in glorious mauve and pink colours, the colours of spring. Mother lifted one bolt off the pile and put it to her nose. She inhaled as if she was smelling a bouquet of roses. “It’s 19 cents a yard this week,” the sales clerk said, and I knew she was wondering if Mother could spare such a portly sum. She could indeed. Hadn’t we just sold a cutter full of chickens, butter and eggs?

We left the store with four pieces of Dan River cotton all in the palest of colours, and even though they had been put into a Walker’s Store paper bag, I could smell the sweetness of the new material as I carried the parcel back to the cutter. After a stop at the drug store, we headed back to the farm and I sat huddled under the fur rug with the parcel of material clutched tight to my chest. After supper, all of us sat around the big pine table, with the exception of Father who was in his usual spot in front of the Findlay Oval, and Mother took out the pieces of Dan River cotton and spread them out before her. MAGIC

They would become house dresses, and blouses for Audrey and me, and would provide many an hour of work for Mother, who would do her magic on the old treadle Singer sewing machine. Before it was bedtime, we could hear the wind picking up outside and the back door shuddered with the storm’s onset. Father put a log as long as a broom handle into the stove and Audrey, without being asked, rolled up two small braided rugs and put them at the bottoms of the doors lead-

ing outside and into the summer kitchen. The kitchen was as warm as we could make it.

So Father was right. The back of winter had not been broken - there was more to come. As the storm raged outside, Mother let out a deep sigh and rubbed her hands over the new pieces of Dan River cotton.

Capital Chordettes celebrate 50th anniversary EMC events - Throughout 2013 the Capital Chordettes are celebrating 50 years of entertaining Ottawa area audiences. The Capital Chordettes are a dynamic, award-winning chorus of forty women of all ages and from all walks of life who sing a cappella, 4-part harmony. To mark this momentous year, several special events are being held, including a Big Band Dance and Concert on March 9 at the Ron Kolbus Lakeside Centre. The Capital Chordettes chartered with Harmony, Inc., an international women’s barbershop organization, in 1963. With just four directors in its 50 year history, the chorus has benefited from great continuity in its musical leadership. During this time, it has ranked consistently among the top choruses in Harmony, Inc. contests, and is actively engaged in that organization, with members being part of leadership groups at area and international levels, and hosting contests and educational events. Performance highlights over the years have included Canada Day celebrations on Parliament Hill, singing for the Queen and Prince Philip on the occasion of their 50th wedding anniversary, performing at the Ottawa Little Theatre 100th season Grand Gala, and singing the national anthem at Ottawa 67s hockey games. The Capital Chordettes are active members of the Ottawa area cultural community, performing regularly at public and private events, large and small, including fund-raising concerts with community partners. The chorus has also made several recordings. It proudly supports a local charity, Children at Risk, an organization providing services in the Greater Ottawa area to families of children diagnosed within the Autism Spectrum Disorders. Since 2004, the chorus has raised more than $22 000 for this organization. Charter member Elaine Dunlop has been singing with the chorus since 1963. At that time she was a young mother at home with her children and looked forward to getting out every Tuesday night. Elaine continues to enjoy the social interaction with other women and loves to sing with many voices. “I enjoy my part fitting in with all the others,” says Elaine. There is a strong family connection to the Capital Chordettes for Elaine. Her husband Jerry Dunlop directed the chorus from 1971 to 1990 and her daughter Carolyn Henderson became the current director in 2007. The Capital Chordettes are a family affair for Elaine. BIG BAND DANCE

One of the events marking the 50th anniversary of the Capital Chordettes is a combined big band dance and concert. Guests will enjoy a variety of music from the 1930s to the present with the Capital Chordettes and Standing Room Only, a 15-piece big band. This event takes place

on Saturday, March 9, 2013 from 7:30-10:30 p.m. at the Ron Kolbus Lakeside Centre, 102 Greenview Avenue, Britannia Park, Ottawa.

Carp Guides, Scouts hold family skate day on outdoor rink EMC news - Carp Guiding and Scouting held a family skating day on the outdoor rink in Carp on Feb. 16. The Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and their families took to the ice early in the morning. Then, later, skating was enjoyed by about 40 girls from Carp Sparks, Brownies and Guides and their families. “It was really good. Lots of people came out,” said leader Cal Goodger. “The weather

was gorgeous. The girls all had smiles on their faces. It was great.” The event kicked off a week of events held by the local Guide units for World Thinking Day. Each year on Feb. 22, 10 million Girl Guides and Girl Scouts around the world celebrate World Thinking Day, which is a day of friendship, advocacy and fundraising. Girl Guides of Canada Members use this day as

an opportunity to participate in activities and projects with global themes, learn and take action on important issues facing girls around the world, and fundraise to support the Canadian World Friendship Fund. Girl Guides and Girl Scouts have been celebrating World Thinking Day since 1926 and it has been an important fundraising day since 1932 The Guides and Scouts are extremely grateful to the Huntley Community Association for mak-

Law students from the University of Ottawa perform at a comedy fundraiser for Ottawa ACORN on Feb. 7 at the Draft Pub.

Law students get chuckles for charity Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - Students in the University of Ottawa’s law program put down their books and picked up a microphone to have a few laughs and help raise a little money for a good cause at the same time. A comedy night to raise money for Ottawa ACORN, an organization that fights for social justice for low-income families across Canada, was held on Feb. 7 at the Draft Pub. Some of the university’s law students volunteer for ACORN, including Michael Currie, who helped organize the event. He said the students just wanted to help the local association. “It’s a great feeling to know that we can use the law to help others,” said Currie, who does stand-up comedy when he’s not hitting the books. “We look forward to raising some much-needed funds to

keep Ottawa ACORN’s initiative going.” Currie and six other law students and one law professor braved the stage, with some of them taking their first stab at stand up. “Everybody did great,” he said. “The audience was pumped up and we sold out very quickly.” Jill O’Reilly, an organizer at ACORN Ottawa, reached out to law students in early 2012 to match the soon-to-be lawyers with low-income families who needed assistance in landlord and tenant matters. “Many of our members endure horrible conditions, such as cockroach infestations, mouse infestations, flooding, mould, and so on, even though they pay their rent every month,” O’Reilly said. “The law students, including Michael (Currie), volunteer their time to fight for our members and help provide them with tools to deal with their disputes.” Currie said the program has helped

these families understand their rights as tenants and has provided himself and the other students valuable experience. This is the second time Currie has organized a comedy event for a cause and this year the jokes that rang through the pub during the evening involved personal experience, some law jokes and observations. “I think a lot of people don’t believe that I do stand up and am in law school - like you can’t do both,” Currie said. “I think also there are a lot of parallels with comedy and law - just having that confidence and comfort and connecting with other people - you have to do the same whether it is law or stand up.” As of last Friday, the group had raised $1,800, doubling what they raised at last year’s event. All the proceeds from the evening were donated to ACORN. Currie indicated the event may become an annual affair.

OTTAWA VALLEY FARM SHOW The Ottawa Valley Farm Show (OVFS) will be held from March 12 to 14 at the Ernst & Young Centre (4899 Uplands Drive). Sponsored by the Ottawa Valley Seed Growers Association, the OVFS is the largest annual exhibition of its kind held in Ontario east of Toronto. Of particular interest to farm families and other rural residents, the show features 300+ commercial exhibitors offering everything from machinery and equipment, to computer and financial services. For more information please visit ottawafarmshow.com.

APPS4OTTAWA CONTEST In 2010 the City hosted its first ever Apps4Ottawa contest to reward developers of the most useful, creative, and effective web-based applications and tools, to allow people to easily make use of the City of Ottawa’s Open Data.

App submissions can be made from March 11 to May 12, 2013 with judging and public voting happening from May 13 to May 31. For further information please read the official contest rules on ottawa.ca or contact opendata@ottawa.ca. The online “Idea Jam” is now open online (ottawa.ca/en/appideas-campaign).

Lanark, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington MPP Randy Hillier hosted an information session on the Algonquin land claim agreement in principle at the legion hall, and he was quick to state what the evening was not about. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not about Idle No More. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not about Attawapiskat. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not about Caledonia. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not about the millions spent on the Indian Act,â&#x20AC;? said Hillier. The agreement in principle between the Algonquins and the federal and provincial government was publicly released on Dec. 13, 2012 and, having read through the document, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I found it necessary to have this meeting. This process has not been very inclusive of people.â&#x20AC;? While he stressed that he was not speaking on behalf of the negotiators, only himself as an MPP, he added that he wanted to â&#x20AC;&#x153;bring this document into the public domain,â&#x20AC;? even though it was â&#x20AC;&#x153;not set in stone.â&#x20AC;? He noted there will be more years of negotiation after public consultation, as well as votes at Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Park, the federal parliament and in a referendum of the Algonquin people. While Hillier expressed what the meeting was not about, he admitted difficulty in deciding how to address the First Nations community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I will use the word Indians, out of respect for Indians, because they deserve respect,â&#x20AC;? said Hillier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know the proper name for them.â&#x20AC;? At this, attendee Maureen Bostock called out â&#x20AC;&#x153;theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re First Nations,â&#x20AC;? at which Hillier, appearing not to hear her, told Bostock that he would be taking questions at the end of the meeting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He never used that language (Indian) again throughout the rest of the evening,â&#x20AC;? said Bostock afterwards, with Hillier tending to refer to Algonquins. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So, I was proud of that.â&#x20AC;? While Hillier stressed that the meeting was not about the Attawapiskat First Nation, or other First Nations whose accounting practices have been called into question, he noted that

â&#x20AC;&#x153;weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had some pretty clear examples where individuals donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a voice in those monies or lands and we can see things are going wrong. We get unaccountable governance â&#x20AC;Ś and a disempowered people. We have seen examples of that recently.â&#x20AC;? Hillier said he had received correspondence from Algonquins themselves who â&#x20AC;&#x153;do not feel that they have been engagedâ&#x20AC;? either. However, Hillier defended the Algonquins against claims that the agreement would be bad for social order. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want this agreement as a smoke screen for people to do whatever they want,â&#x20AC;? said Rob Wiltson, doing things like blocking roads. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Algonquins in eastern Ontario are not the Mohawks in Caledonia. There are differences,â&#x20AC;? said Hillier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can only judge people based on their previous actions.â&#x20AC;? The meeting drew a wide variety of opinion about the land claim process, and how a final agreement would be implemented. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This claim has cast a cloud over the title of all crown land in eastern Ontario,â&#x20AC;? said Hillier, and thereby â&#x20AC;&#x153;hampering economic development.â&#x20AC;? Hillier drew a chuckle when he pointed out that hammering out such a land claim was difficult because of the competing jurisdictions of the federal and provincial governments. Migratory birds, for example, according to Hillier, are covered by the federal government, whereas grouse and partridge are covered under the auspices of the province. Rick Antankowitz of Central Frontenac identified himself as a taxpayer who is â&#x20AC;&#x153;upsetâ&#x20AC;? when he sees the land claims process in motion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a taxpayer, do we not have the right to have a say on what is done with this land, as a people who are interested in this?â&#x20AC;? said Antankowitz. He expressed concerns that â&#x20AC;&#x153;there has to be some better solution than to hand it (the land) on to a select group of people â&#x20AC;Ś (The land) has been available to all Canadians without prejudice.â&#x20AC;? Others saw the situation differently, that the claim was righting a historic injustice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lands were taken,â&#x20AC;? said Elizabeth Snyder. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For nearly 300 years, that has not been addressed. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a long time to be on other peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s land, rent free.â&#x20AC;? Snyder also expressed her view that the Al-

gonquinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s demands were reasonable. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have gotten off quite lightly,â&#x20AC;? Snyder said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They could have asked for more. We are trying to right a wrong. This is a good step.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We cannot undo history,â&#x20AC;? said Hillier in reply. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What we have done in the past has not worked,â&#x20AC;? he added, referring particularly to collective land ownership to be found on reservations, for example. Bostock stood up during the question and answer session to reiterate Snyderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s point. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are getting to address a wrong that goes back 200 years,â&#x20AC;? said Bostock. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All of this land, the land that this building is built on, this town is built on, is unceded Algonquin land.â&#x20AC;?

five generations of family members who enjoyed the outdoors. Another hunter, Wendell Crosbie, feared that the agreement would allow the Algonquins â&#x20AC;&#x153;to have rights to hunt everything, excluding moose and elk, 365 days a year.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;No, there are some nuances in there,â&#x20AC;? replied Hillier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Personal use and personal consumption, there is no limit on the transferred lands.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have a lack of trust in government and negotiations,â&#x20AC;? continued Crosbie. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The trust is not there. They never consulted with the people of Canada.â&#x20AC;? LAND TRANSFER

OTHER QUESTIONS

For others in attendance, the dominant issue was how their rights as landowners, fishers, hunters and foresters would be protected. Peter Garrett of Central Frontenac has a problem that many landowners in the area face regarding the land claims issue. He owns land near Silver Lake, and the Algonquins have claimed an area that is landlocked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The only access is through my property,â&#x20AC;? said Garrett, who wondered if the Algonquins would be allowed to use the private road into the area. Another hunter, Al Ireton, had the opposite problem. In order to access his 88 year-old hunting camp, â&#x20AC;&#x153;we would have to drive through eight kilometers of native land. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been told that we will lose access to those hunting grounds. This is part of our hunting heritage too,â&#x20AC;? though Ireton added that he has spoken to other hunting camps in the area, and been informed that the Ministry of Natural Resources has told that â&#x20AC;&#x153;it is status quo.â&#x20AC;? Terry Bingley of Lanark also wondered if his non-registered trap line from Dalhousie Lake to Bottle Lake would be recognized by the land claims negotiators. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If it is not documented, the negotiating team is not aware of it,â&#x20AC;? said Hillier, who urged constituents to get any documentation to the negotiators as soon as possible to create a paper trail. Hunters were also in attendance to present their views on access to hunting areas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We used to hunt and fish on crown land, (even) before the time of hunting licenses, to feed our families,â&#x20AC;? said Murray Myers, of the

Earlier in the evening, Hillier explained that the agreement involves the transfer of not less than 117,500 acres of provincial crown land to the Algonquins, who will set up a corporation to manage the land. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They will own their land just as I own mine,â&#x20AC;? said Hillier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think this is an absolutely exceptional way of doing it.â&#x20AC;? He was also quick to dispel rumours about the project, pointing out that it does not affect private property, will not result in the closure of Algonquin Park, and no new reservations will be created. The Algonquins will also receive a one-time, lump sum of $300 million. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These lands will be subject to municipal zoning and property taxation just like other property is,â&#x20AC;? said Hillier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Future land claims should follow this model and give transferred land directly to tribes. It is only fair that people are treated the same.â&#x20AC;? Hillier did take exception to the provisions made to the Algonquins regarding the free use of the Rideau Canal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe that is fair or justifiable,â&#x20AC;? said Hillier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To give, forever, use of the Rideau Canal.â&#x20AC;? He also expressed his concerns about language in the agreement in principle regarding native logging rights. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The wording in the agreement would, to me, seem that there would be an advantage to Algonquins to cut on crown land,â&#x20AC;? said Hillier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I believe that it (the agreement) is sufficiently vague that it needs to be tightened up.â&#x20AC;? While Bostock may not have agreed with everything Hillier said, she was glad of the opportunity for the community to discuss the matter.

Record catch of anglers at annual derby EMC news -The third annual live release 616 Ice Fishing Derby was held Saturday, Feb. 16 under clear sunny skies on Constance Bay Seventy-six participants took part in another successful day on the ice. This was without a doubt the best winter derby weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had to date. A record number of walleye were caught, many weighing-in over two pounds each. Many pike were caught as well, keeping the organizers busy registering fish and issuing draw tickets to the participants. All fish were released back into the Ottawa River. Successful anglers receive tickets for fish caught, five for walleye, three for pike, and one for perch. At the end of the derby a draw is held and three winning ticket holders win cash prizes totalling fifty percent of the prize money, while the heaviest fish caught is worth the other fifty percent of the purse. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s money winners were Steve Small whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tickets were drawn twice for a total prize of $152; Glen Beck won one of the draws for $152; while the heaviest fish, a 4 lb-4 oz pike, was worth $304 for Trevor Henderson.

Not long after the Renfrew Gun & Hunting Show is the largest of organizer Dave Arbours ventures â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Valley Fishing & Outdoor Show. The Valley Fishing & Outdoor Show runs annually in the spring at the Carp Arena and Fairgrounds (3832 Carp Rd.) This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dates are April 5 to 7.

Land trust group to discuss Mississippi River EMC news - The Mississippi Madawaska Land Trust Conservancy (MMLTC) will hold its annual general meeting on Saturday, March 2, at 2 p.m. at the Lanark & District Civitan Club. A land trust helps landowners and serves the community to preserve and protect special areas of our landscape against harmful uses. Celebrating its tenth year in operation as a charitable organization, the MMLTC and its members will be welcoming this year the awarding of a two year capacity building grant by the Ontario Trillium Foundation. Members and new volunteers are invited to help with the ambitious and exciting program set out to grow our abilities. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guest speaker is Brian Osborne, Professor Emeritus of Geography at Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s University. Osborneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s talk is titled, â&#x20AC;&#x153;People in Planning the MMLTC: Wilderness, Resource, Icon, Home?â&#x20AC;? Working on the principle that the environment is as much a human construct as a scientific concept, this presentation will examine the role of people in creating a sense of place within the Mississippi River and lower Madawaska River watersheds. In fact, the MMLTC region owes much of its character to a particular landscape that has evolved through many generations of people working with nature, and adapting to dynamic economic, social and cultural contexts. We are now living in one such period of

dynamism as people look to sustain nature as part of a complex calculus of rural economics, community protection, quality of life and health concerns. Perhaps there is some wisdom to be gained by placing the present developments in a longer local trajectory. Osborneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s research areas include aboriginal history, settlement history, cultural landscapes, and the role of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;culture of communicationsâ&#x20AC;? in the development of a Canadian sense of place. Professor Osborne is a published author and has served as a consultant for the National Capital Commission, Heritage Canada, Parks Canada, Canada Post, the National Film Board, and the City of Kingston. Past President of the Ontario Historical Society and Kingston Historical Society, he serves on the boards of several heritage and community organizations. Osborne also played a major role in the preparation of the submission for the recognition of the Rideau Canal and Kingston Fortifications as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Among other honours, he is the recipient of the Queen Elizabeth IIâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gold and Diamond Jubilee Medals. The Civitan Club is located at 2144 Pinegrove Rd. in Lanark. Directions can be found on their website at: http://www.lanark-district.civitan.net/Directions.php.

Bat exhibit admission $3 EMC lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The admission cost for the bat exhibit at the Arnprior and District Museum is $3. The museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s usual general admission is $3.50, students and seniors $2, and $9 per family, but for those coming to see the bat exhibit,

Rural Root Theatre presents The Drowsy Chaperone at the Constance Bay Community Centre. Tickets are $12 to $15. The Drowsy Chaperone is a play within a play. A theatre fan, known only as Man in Chair, is a loner stuck in his apartment. His only joy is listening to a recording of his favourite 1920’s musical, The Drowsy Chaperone. As he listens to the recording, the characters and music in the play come to life and his apartment is transformed into a Broadway stage. Hilarity and mayhem ensues. See ruralroot.org for more.
