Lawn with a difference


Ducks go upstream

JOHN CURRY NEWS STAFF It’s a lawn with a difference. No grass. Instead, Manchester Street residents Edward and Marianna Zurawski of Stittsville have opted to plant their front yard with creeping thyme, a low growing green ground cover that has small purple flowers for about a month and a half. It means that the front yard is not only colourful but requires little or no maintenance (no weeds), requires no mowing, needs little watering and looks nice. Creeping thyme is also hardy enough that it can be walked on with no damage resulting. An added feature for Marianna is the aroma that the creeping thyme creates. She says that she can be strolling on the street several houses away in the evening and still smell the thyme’s fragrant aroma. The front yard featuring purple creeping thyme is an attention getter, no doubt about it. Edward says that at least ten people a day stop by and ask about the unique front yard, especially now that it is a sea of purple.

On the corner of Hazeldean and Eagleson Road



The plan was simple. Just like in the previous two years, 750 manmade little yellow ducks, each bearing a number, would be dumped into the Jock River from the McBean Street bridge in Richmond. In about half an hour, the first three of these ducks to reach a boom stretched out across the river downstream would be the winners of this annual duck race. Their numbers would be checked and those who had purchased the draw tickets bearing these numbers would be the winners - $1,000 for the top duck, $300 for the runner-up and $200 for the third place finisher. This year’s duck race had an extra added feature – Nepean-Carleton MPP Lisa MacLeod was on hand as a celebrity “dumper,” helping Bruce Johnson of the Richmond District Lions Club dump one of two plastic containers of the ducks over the east side bridge railing and into the Jock River water below. “Ooh, that was awesome,” the MPP exclaimed after sending the curtain of the yellow ducks splashing into the Jock. And that’s when the plan went off the rails. The ducks did not start floating downstream toward the far off finish line as planned and expected. Instead, they started floating upstream, under and then beyond the bridge. “Houston, we have a problem,” said Lion Bruce Johnson as he and others including MPP Lisa MacLeod scampered to the west side of the bridge to see the ducks emerging, going upstream. What to do, what to do? The lack of current, a lower water level than in the past and a breeze coming upriver from the east were surmised as the reasons why the ducks headed upstream rather than down the river. The Lions Club had two boats in the river for the race, one under the control of Ken Vaughn and another under the guidance of Alastair Munro.


The Lions hit upon an initial strategy of having Alastair Munro rev up his boat’s outboard motor near the ducks, creating a current so that they would start heading downstream. This worked to some degree, as some of the ducks moved on back under the bridge and headed downstream. Some got as far as 50 yards or so down the river from the bridge before the breeze coming up the river forced them back upriver. So, it was onto another plan, where Lions Alastair Munro and Bill Reid, in their boat, scooped up the upstream ducks and then dumped them into the Jock downstream from the bridge, hoping that they would then start floating toward the finish line. But, alas, thanks to the continuing breeze up the river, the ducks just started going back upstream. Faced with these uncooperative ducks, the Lions had a choice – hold a draw of JOHN CURRY PHOTO the ticket holders to determine a winner or Bruce Johnson, left, of the Richmond District Lions Club and Lisa MacLeod, right, MPP for Nepeansimply pick three ducks at random in the Carleton, get ready to toss little yellow ducks off the McBean Street bridge into the waters of the Jock water. This was the decision and at 2:20 River below to mark the start of the third annual fundraising duck race sponsored by the Lions Club last p.m., 50 minutes after the 1:30 p.m. iniSaturday.

tial dumping, three of the ducks who were leading the charge back upstream were pulled from the water by Lion Bill Reid as the winners. The first duck pulled out was number 27, the number of the ticket purchased by Sandra Crawford. It turns out that Sandra lives in Alabama and purchased the ticket while visiting last September’s Richmond Fair with friends Mike and Earla Hynes of Richmond. She wins the $1,000 first prize. The second duck pulled from the water was number 611, with John Brown holding the corresponding ticket number. He wins the $300 second prize. The $200 third prize, for duck number 156, the third one pulled from the water, goes to Adam Chamberlan. And just to cap this day of the unusual, at 2:30 p.m., just as the last of the winning ducks was being pulled from the water, a gust of wind blew over the Lions sign about the duck race which had been set up on the bridge to publicize the event. A perhaps fitting end to what may just have been the world’s first ever upstream duck race. The mighty Jock strikes again!

Black bear in backyard


Vandals have struck two Canada Post kiosks in Stittsville. Both the Wyldewood and West Ridge kiosks have had a pane of glass smashed by


vandals. It is believed that the West Ridge kiosk damage was done just after noon last Monday. The Wyldewood postal kiosk was the target of similar glass-smashing vandalism last year.

JOHN CURRY NEWS STAFF A black bear, standing approximately six feet tall, was spotted recently foraging for food in the backyard of a Franktown Road home west of Richmond. The bear was last seen heading eastward toward Richmond. The Ottawa Police Service advised a nearby day JOHN BRUMMELL PHOTO care about the bear spotting. Jonathan Gilman sorts through some of The Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources was gothe books on sale at the annual book fair at A. Lorne Cassidy Elementary School in ing to set up a bait trap in the ar4ea to attempt to locate and track the bear. Stittsville on Friday, May 28.

It all began last year after the Zurawski’s lawn had been destroyed by grubs for the second time. This led to a decision to try something else. Marianna had heard about the use of creeping thyme for a lawn and investigated. She decided on a purple flowering thyme. Other options included white (too much like snow) or yellow. There were also other types but some were too tall and some were too short, almost like a moss covering. So the decision was made to go with the purple creeping thyme which grows from two to four inches high. Its dense nature means that the soil retains moisture well, meaning that only minimal watering is ever needed. When the creeping thyme is not blooming,

it is green. Eventually the Zurawski’s front yard will be a continuous blanket of thyme as the plants fill in the current small spaces between them. The Zurawski’s front yard has been planted with the creeping thyme, replacing the previous lawn. To prevent any spread of the plant into a neighbouring lawn, a rubber/brick barrier has been installed along the side of the property. In addition, Marianna intends to clip or prune the creeping thyme near the property line so that there is no danger that it will spread beyond the Zurawski property. The Zurawski’s rear yard, however, will be retaining its grass, as well as the hundreds of hostas which Marianna loves and which she has planted in the rear yard as well as in her front flower beds.

Rory Bradley - a life that made a difference He was not a prominent politician or business leader or community activist. But in his quiet, dignified, wholesome life, Rory Bradley, who died suddenly on May 22 at the age of 54, showed that what is most important is not the glory of the spotlight nor the glare of media adulation. Rather, what is most important is giving to others, mentoring the young, loving your family and sharing your talents and passions with all whom you encounter. This is the recipe for community living and life at its finest; this is what is needed for a community to be truly alive, truly supportive, truly caring, truly beloved. And this does not go unnoticed. That is why the ice pad at the Stittsville arena was jammed with people last Sunday afternoon for Rory Bradley’s funeral service. People recognize quality; they recognize commitment; they recognize


someone who has their priorities straight. And this is how Rory Bradley lived his life, helping others, showing the way, putting others at ease with his calm and easy manner. He took his sports experiences and passions and through his coaching taught youth not only how to play hockey but how to play the game of life. He taught not only the strategies of the ice surface but also the strategies of the world, of life, of people. Hockey was the tool but life and the value of character, of hard work, of giving your best was Rory’s real message. And so, in this world of today where materialism reigns, where the latest electronic gadget draws crowds, where glitter dominates over the gold of the soul, Rory Bradley has shown us all through his example in life that what truly

matters and what is really important as we go through this time on earth is not what we accumulate in material goods but what we do for others and how we share ourselves with them. This is what Rory did and that is why he will be remembered as the years go by because he made a difference. He showed his young players that morals, values, ideals and friendships are what should be celebrated and cherished. That is why hundreds showed up for his funeral service. They knew the difference that he made in so many people’s lives. And he did it by being himself, a sports enthusiast who in sport found not only enjoyment but also the key to a happy and fulfilling life – be true to yourself, cherish others, love your family and celebrate life. Life sure is worth living when you follow Rory Bradley’s way.

JOHN CURRY NEWS STAFF The city councillor sees development pressure coming for Ashton. City of Ottawa Rideau-Goulbourn ward councillor Glenn Brooks believes that there will be development pressure on Ashton in the next few years once the expansion of highway seven to four lanes is completed, making the community in reality much closer to the city. “So pressure is going to be on them,” he says about Ashton and its residents and that is why he thinks the community should be developing a secondary plan. This, of course, is one of councillor Brooks’ consistent pleas for all village communities. “I think every village should have a secondary plan,” he says as he believes that the presence of such a plan means that the community will develop in accordance with the wishes and views of the residents and not of developers. In the case of Ashton, he recognizes that any secondary plan will have to be a joint undertaking with neighbouring Beckwith township but such joint ventures are possible. He points to a current initiative involving development of a secondary plan for Burritt’s Rapids involving the city and adjacent North Grenville since that community, like Ashton, straddles a municipal boundary line.

JOHN CURRY NEWS STAFF The South Carleton High School junior football team has stepped up to help seven year old Shelby Dozios of Richmond who has been diagnosed with two types of leukemia. The players should end up raising up to $2,500 or more to help Shelby and her family offset costs incurred while Shelby undergoes treatment at CHEO and possible treatment at Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto. They have done this by auctioning off the right to cut their hair and also collecting pledges for the Wild4Shelby fund. The auction itself, held at lunch time on Wednesday, May 26 at the school, raised almost $400. It is expected that when all of the pledges collected by the players come in, more than

Floodplain public meeting Recently, residents who have become aware that their properties have a floodplain zoning, which restricts future development, with the exception of certain sized additions and accessory structures, have raised concern. The 2005 Provincial Policy Statement (PPS) directed municipalities to not permit any development in floodplains. The PPS established this policy with the purpose of protecting public safety and property on private and public land from possible flooding.

$2,500 will have been raised by their efforts. This fundraising is going to help the family immeasurably as will funds raised by a “Wild4Shelby” fundraiser that is being held on Saturday, Jun 19 at the Richmond arena. This event will include a buffet dinner catered by the Lone Star Ranch restaurant, silent auctions, door prizes and more. Entertainment for the evening dance will be provided by a local band called “Cheshire Grin.” Ticket information is available from Sue’s Hair Advantage in Richmond (phone 613838-4753). There will be a limited number of tickets for the dance available at the door. Shelby, who is a grade two student, has already completed ten days of chemotherapy treatment and is at CHEO where she is being monitored and is undergoing tests to see how she is responding to her treatments. Future

treatment options may include a bone marrow transplant. Prior to her diagnosis on April 1, Shelby was a very active and healthy child. She was involved in ringette and was looking forward to the soccer season. The goal of the Wild4Shelby fundraiser and other fundraising in the community is to provide funds so that Shelby’s parents, Marc and Hilary Dozios, can focus all of their energy on helping Shelby fight her illness and to ease any financial strains. A trust fund for Shelby has been set up at Scotiabank in Richmond. A post office box in Shelby’s name (P.O. Box 391, Richmond, Ontario K0A 2Z0) has been established to receive donations by mail. There are collection tins for Shelby at some businesses in both Richmond and Stittsville.

Share your concerns with Waste Management As a result of this provincial direction, the City worked with Mississippi Valley Conservation to establish the floodplain overlay mapping used for the zoning in the approved 2008 City of Ottawa Comprehensive Zoning By-law. Under the former Goulbourn Zoning Bylaw, the floodplain areas were zoned to restrict development so in the case of Stittsville, there have been no significant changes in regards to floodplains with the passing of the new zoning by-law in 2008. This floodplain policy affected properties throughout Ontario. In Stittsville this has affected some homeowners abutting Poole Creek. You can search the zoning on your property by visiting the City website at http:// proposed_en.html. For more information I encourage you to attend a public meeting on Tuesday, June 15 at 7 p.m. in the upper hall of the Stittsville & District Community Centre located at 10 Warner Colpitts Lane. Keeping our natural environment clean When taking walks along Poole Creek, the Trans Canada Trail or any other path or park for that matter, please keep them clean. I encourage you to use the City’s Green Bin and Leaf and Yard Waste initiatives in an effort to keep our parks and paths clean. When they are used as dumping grounds, it creates an unfortunate situation for others who enjoy the environment. So please, keep our natural environment free of waste. Celebrate the summer at Shad’s Park Party My annual Park Party and BBQ is around the corner. It’s going to be a full day of fun activities at Village Park, located on Stittsville Main Street on Saturday June 12 from noon4pm. The Canadian Beef Farmers’ Association will once again be handling the BBQ duties from noon to 2 pm. There will be unlimited drinking water, complimentary snow cones and cotton candy. In addition, there will be entertainment for

all ages with Little Ray’s Reptile Zoo from 1 pm to 2 pm, Galloping Goats Petting Zoo from 2 pm to 3 pm and an inflatable slide all afternoon. There is also going to be a tug of war rope, face painting and a bounce castle. Goulbourn Recreation Complex staff will be on hand to give demonstrations throughout the afternoon on various City programs such as Zumba and Dance Fit. Members of the Stittsville/Goulbourn Horticultural Society will be demonstrating some planting. Members from the local emergency and health departments will be offering services and educational material for families. I hope you and your family are able to join me at the park to celebrate the summer, and to get to know your neighbours. I look forward to seeing you all on June 12 for a day of fun!

Appraising antiques, helping young Niko And just who are these experts. There’s Ross Wilson, who has appeared on the Canadian Antiques Road Show and is an expert in military items. He will be joined by Claude Aubin, an expert in native artefacts, nostalgia and toys; Mike Cleary, an English fine furniture specialist; Mark Gendron, a Canadian furniture expert; Lindsay Lambert, who specializes in optical, technical, jewellery and silver items; Scott Wallace of Maple Leaf Auctions who knows all about stoneware, bottles and Canadiana items; Kim Murray, an expert in furniture, china and glass; and an expert from Ottawa Coin and Stamp, knowledgeable about old money, coins and stamps. Larger items should be photographed and bring along the photo so that the item can be evaluated based on the photo. It is not expected that larger items will be carried to this event. Line Gendron of Gendron Antiques & Reproductions had heard about Niko from a friend and wanted to do something to help him. Stars to support Niko were sold at the shop and indeed sales were brisk but Line wanted to do more. Both she and her husband Mark and appraiser Kim Murray, who works at the Gendron shop, all felt this way. They decided to hold an antiques appraisal day, something which Gendron Antiques has not done before. Kim Murray did much of the organizing for the event, lining up the expert appraisers.

JOHN CURRY NEWS STAFF It’s a win win situation. A win for antique buffs and those who want to know the value of a treasured item. A win for four year old Nikolas (Niko) Miceli of Stittsville who is to undergo four months of intense chemotherapy and a stem cell transplant in Montreal but will do so with his family there with him, free from financial worries. This win win situation is an antiques appraisal day at Gendron Antiques & Reproductions, located in the “Big Red Barn” on Hazeldean Road at Carp Road in Stittsville. This “Antiques Road Show” type event will not only provide an opportunity o have antiques and collectables evaluated by a team of experts but also will raise funds so that Niko’s family can join him in Montreal to support him throughout his treatment without any financial worries. This antiques appraisal day will be held on Saturday, June 19 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Gendron Antiques and Reproductions. It goes ahead rain or shine as the “Big Red Barn” has a wide overhanging roof that will provide plenty of shelter in the case of inclement weather. And as for the team of experts, all of whom have donated their time, they have a wide range of expertise and knowledge and among them, they should be able to appraise and give a verbal evaluation on virtually anything that is brought to the event. The experts will look at an item for a five dollar charge, while there is a limit of three items per person. All of these proceeds will be going to help young Niko.

JOHN CURRY NEWS STAFF Students from South Carleton High School in Richmond and Frederick Banting Secondary Alternate Program in Stittsville are among the 32 students honoured by the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board in its fifth annual Student Recognition Awards.

“Good Beer, Good Wine, Good Times”

Stittsville News - JUNE 03, 2010

Line Gendron is uncertain just how much money will be raised by this antiques appraisal day but she says that even more important than the funds raised is the energy and support which Niko’s family will feel coming from this community event. “This is our goal,” Mrs. Gendron says. “The energy, the support to the family is more important than all the money in the world.” She admits that Niko’s story has touched her deeply, perhaps more so because many in her life seem to be touched by cancer recently. This includes friends of her children and also a longtime friend. And now Niko. At the antiques appraisal day, there will be lunch available on the site. This will include hamburgers, hot dogs, drinks and bottled water. In addition, city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri will be in attendance at the event, lending his support. Nikolas (Niko) Miceli is the four year old son of Renee Asselin and Tony Miceli of Stittsville. Niko was diagnosed with a brain tumour this past February, just three weeks before his fourth birthday. Surgery at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario was able to remove the tumour but some malignant

particles have spread to his spine. Niko will be going to Montreal for four months to receive his chemotherapy treatment and steam cell transplant. This means that the family, which also includes five year old Matthew, will need to live in Montreal for the four months, in accommodation somewhere close to the hospital there. When Niko was diagnosed with his brain tumour, he underwent a three hour MRI, an eight hour surgery to remove the brain tumour, an operation to install a shunt, another operation to revise the shunt and more, all within two weeks. This all left him unable to drink and eat. He had paralysed vocal cords, a droopy right eye and was unable to sit or walk. He also experienced a lot of pain in his lower body because the particles in his spinal fluid were pressing against his nerves. Radiation treatments helped and he has regained his voice, is able to eat and rink, his eye has returned to normal and he can sit without any problems. After 59 days in hospital, Niko was discharged on Monday, April 19. He became an out-patient, completing his radiation treatments which involved a total of 31 sessions in seven weeks. These would end on May 6

On April 28, he was back in hospital to undergo another surgery, namely for the insertion of a tube directly into his stomach in order to feed him. A six week respite at home is going to be followed by high dose chemotherapy at the Ste-Justine Hospital in Montreal, lasting four months. A fundraising dance for Niko was held at the Lions Hall in Stittsville last Saturday night. Local businesses and organizations which have been supportive include the Stittsville District Lions Club, DiRienzo Foods, Pocopazzo Restaurant, Stittsville Home Furniture, Molson’s, Belly Laughs, Stittsville Main Street Physio, Canadian Golf and Country Club, Maxie’s and Good Life Gym.

At 2:45 p.m., Rory’s casket was slowly taken from the ice pad, again through the guard of honour but this time with a difference as the players rhythmically tapped their sticks on the concrete ice pad surface as Rory Bradley a tribute to their coach, mentor and friend. Noticeable on the casket was a Toronto Maple Leaf banner, another reminder of Rory’s lifelong devotion to that team. As the family and close friends left for the interment ceremony at Maple Grove Cemetery at Hazeldean, those in attendance chatted quietly, many with Rory stories and memories, as they remained on site for a reception where they were eventually re-joined by Rory’s family and friends who had attended the interment ceremony. Rory Bradley was born on November 24, 1955, son of the late Fern and Garnet (Red) Bradley, a Fernbank Road farming family with Goulbourn roots going back to 1860. He was one of six children including Debbie, Brent, Kevin, Jill and the late Brenda. Just like his red-headed dad who also played and loved hockey and ball, Rory grew up playing hockey, ball and soccer. He watched Saturday night hockey games and became a Toronto Maple Leaf fan, something that he could not kick even when the Ottawa Senators arrived on the local scene. He loved hockey and could talk about it for hours. He played for the Richmond Royals, the Nepean Raiders and the Smiths Falls Bears and received a hockey scholarship to the University of Canton in New York State.


The ice surface at the Stittsville arena was a familiar spot for Rory Bradley of Stittsville. He spent much of his life around that ice, either as a player or as a minor hockey coach. So, the ice pad at the arena was a most appropriate location for his funeral, one brought on by his death at the early age of 54 on Saturday, May 22. And, indeed, with the ice pad filled with hundreds of mourners and another hundred or so in the arena stands, there was the need for an arena-sized location to accommodate this massive community outpouring of grief and support for this quiet, caring man of family, friends and sport. “At the end of the day, we can all agree on one thing – he was a good man,” said Peter Oliver in one of the two eulogies to Rory delivered at the 45 minute funeral service on Sunday afternoon, May 30 on the ice pad at the Stittsville arena. This was the first funeral ever held at the arena since it opened in 1971. Peter described his friend Rory as a good husband, brother, friend, coach and, yes, “our hero” who shared with everyone his passion for life and for sports. Peter’s eulogy followed one delivered by his sister Debbie Bradley who told Rory’s life story, praising him as a humble man who was always the first to offer assistance to people. “He was a friend and mentor to so many,” she said, telling how through his coaching he helped mould many young people to be strong. “Rory was a straight shooting guy with great sensitivity,” she said, noting that his passions were for his wife Carolyn, his children, his friends and, of course, sports. “He enjoyed his life and I think he really enjoyed being Rory Bradley,” she concluded. For the funeral service, seating was set up on the ice pad, directed towards the focal point at centre ice on the north side

of the pad, beneath the wall-mounted advertising signs and the hockey championship pennants that Rory himself would have seen so often in his years playing and coaching in this arena. Prominent in view was a hockey net draped with two hockey sweaters – a red Stittsville Redmen one and a blue Toronto Maple Leaf jersey – symbolizing Rory’s two sporting loves, Stittsville’s minor hockey teams and the Maple Leafs. The presiding clergy, Rev. Canon John Bridges, noted as well the placement of a Tim Hortons coffee cup on a table beside him, another symbol familiar in Rory’s life. In his remarks, Canon Bridges noted that Rory was a man who knew what a husband and father should be, as well as what it meant to be a member of the community. He recounted how Rory cherished the moments that he spent with each person and noted that the goodness that he offered people in his life was reflected in the massive turnout for the funeral. He thanked Rory’s family for their generosity in sharing him in life with the community and he challenged all the young people that he touched through his coaching to become good people in life. He recited the “Farmer’s Creed” which he felt summed up Rory’s life. The funeral began with a procession from the rear door of the arena, with Rory’s casket making its way slowly through a guard of honour comprised of the players of the Stittsville Redmen juvenile boys’ hockey team and the players of the Ottawa Senators Women’s Hockey Team, all holding hockey sticks. Names such as Gervais, Savoie, Walsh, Villeneuve, Barcley, Waterhouse and Ringland were on the backs of the black Redmen sweaters while the Women’s Team red sweaters bore names such as Dods, Herd, Lucky, Richardson, Dow and Gunn. The funeral service itself, besides the eulogies and Canon Bridges’ remarks, also featured the singing by everyone of “Amazing Grace” as well as the saying of the Lord’s Prayer.

Rory also loved farming and while he also worked off the farm, he worked on the farm with his father who died in the year 2000. In 1983, Rory married the former Carolyn Leroux of Stittsville and they had four children – Tara, Joel, Courtney and Brooke – to whom he and Carolyn were caring and loving parents. Rory died suddenly on Saturday, May 22 in St. Jean sur Richelieu, Quebec. He was closely associated with minor hockey in Stittsville and the Kanata girls’ hockey association. Over the years, he imparted knowledge not only of hockey but of life to hundreds of young players. “Rory will be especially remembered for the calm and caring way in which he mentored and counseled his own children as well as the hundreds of children who crossed the Bradley threshold and the hockey rinks of Stittsville and Kanata,” noted the in memoriam pamphlet distributed at the funeral service. “Rory gave freely of his time and knowledge and his calm and easy manner immediately put anyone who encountered

len. Then, on Melissa Court, an unlocked vehicle that was parked was entered with a GPS unit and an iPod Touch stolen. Also on Grovewood Lane, an iPod, a Blackberry and some CDs were stolen from an unlocked vehicle sometime overnight that same night. The police believe that the same persons were involved in all three of these incidents. That has led the police to advise about the importance of removing all valuables and lock their vehicle doors when the vehicle is parked overnight.

Waste Management will be hosting a

him at ease,” the pamphlet continued as it praised his athletic talents, his generosity, his dignified character and his strong love of family and friends. In a memorial tribute honouring Rory, written by Josh Waterhouse about his hockey coach, Rory was praised for being more than just a hockey coach but also being a life coach who taught players the importance of character, of friendship, and the value of heart in both hockey and in life. Rory Bradley’s impact and influence on young people is going to continue as the Rory Bradley Memorial Bursary is being created in support of education for sports minded youth in the Stittsville/Kanata area. Any donations to this bursary fund would be appreciated by the family. Besides his wife Carolyn, his children and his surviving siblings, Rory is survived by his parents-in-laws John and Pat Leroux of Stittsville as well as by his sister and brother in laws Jan and Mark Kelly and Wayne and Robyn Leroux, his nieces and nephews Mike, Rob, Ryan, Tyler, Madison and his great nephews Chase and Hunter.

Justin Collins of Stittsville, who is battling cancer, is beside the three prizes which are going to be given away in a raffle draw, with the proceeds going to Team Collins in the upcoming Canadian Cancer Society Relay For Life event in Stittsville. Tickets for the draw will be on sale at Brown’s Your Independent Grocer in Stittsville this Saturday, June 5.

Signs taken JOHN CURRY NEWS STAFF Entrance signs for the Quiet Garden at Richmond are popular with thieves. A month ago, one of the green entrance signs, approximately two feet by two feet in size, for the Quiet Garden was stolen from the property of St. John’s Anglican Church in Richmond. Now, lightning has struck twice as a second similar sign has been stolen, sometime between Saturday, May 23 and Wednesday, May 26. Both signs would have required some effort to remove by the thieves. It is going to cost the church some money to replace the signs. However, what has upset those at the church more is the lack of respect displayed towards the church and the community in general by those who have taken these signs. Any information regarding the theft of these signs can be reported to 613-838-6075 or 613-838-9643. Speaking of the Quiet Garden, it is a place of beauty on church property on Fowler Street in Richmond. Meditation and a labyrinth walk in the Quiet Garden are held at the church every Wednesday starting at 10:30 a.m. with everyone welcome. Those who have no prior knowledge or experience with meditation or walking labyrinths should show up around 10:15 a.m. for a brief introductory session. Everyone is most welcome to attend. For more information, please contact Rev. Michel Dubord at 613-838-6075.

prize while also helping out in the battle against cancer by dropping into Brown’s YIG in Stittsville this Saturday and purchase one or hopefully more raffle tickets. The olds are great, the prizes are awesome and there is no better cause. Be part of this priceless experience. Give Team Collins your support.


JOHN CURRY NEWS STAFF Better odds are hard to find. A better cause is impossible to find. And it all is happening because of Stittsville youth Justin Collins who is fighting cancer himself but is also battling the disease globally through participation with Team Collins in Stittsville’s Relay For Life event that is coming up this month. Priceless. It is a raffle draw for some great prizes that is being held by Team Collins, with the winners to be drawn at the Relay For Life on June 18/19. Tickets for this raffle draw will be sold this coming Saturday, June 5 all day long at Brown’s Your Independent Grocer in Stittsville. Justin’s mother, Christina Lalonde, along with members of Team Collins will be on hand to sell the tickets. There are only 5,000 tickets to be sold, so the odds of winning one of the three great prizes is high. Tickets are being sold for two dollars apiece or three tickets for five dollars. All of the funds will be donated to the Canadian Cancer Society through the upcoming Relay For Life in Stittsville. And just what are the prizes in this draw? First prize is a Sony entertainment package of a 42 inch Bravia TV, a PS3, a surround sound system and games, DVDs and music. Justin received this all from the Make A Wish Foundation and has donated it as the first prize in this fundraising draw. Second prize is a hockey stick autographed by Ottawa Senators player Mi-

Poetry read at Artists & Authors in the Park SPECIAL TO THE NEWS At the Artists & Authors in the Park event last Sunday afternoon, the musical sounds of Stittsville’s community concert band floated over Village Square. So too did some of the words of the literary works of authors as they read from their works over the microphone. And so too did the poetic words created by two of the winners in the first-ever youth poetry contest organized by Stittsville’s Youth Connexion.

Jenna McKeown, winner in the grade 6 to 8 category, read her poem “Tell Me What Would Happen”, a poem in which she captured the essence of racism and the racial struggle. Also reading her poem was Isabella Sedgwick who was the third prize winner in the grade 9-12 category. Her poem, “Why We Remember,” captured the essence of Remembrance. The other winners in the grade 6-8 cat-

egory, besides Jenna McKeown, were Julia Gladstone, second, for her poem “Blue Magic” and Katerina Kouloufakos, third, for her poem “Peace.” In the grade 9-12 category, Marielle Gauthier won first prize with her poem “My Eyes,” a poem that showed that the poet knows herself and is able to write about herself and her place in her surroundings. The poem “Mango Girl” won second prize

in the grade 9-12 category for Mallory Skinner. This poem displayed a different way of looking at life or more specifically, a mango. The poems submitted in the contest were judged on creativity, originality, technical excellence and power/impact. The three person jury who judged the entries included Crystal Beshara, Rick Desclouds and John Curry.

Costumes, music, 30 routines in dance show JOHN CURRY NEWS STAFF Elaborate, colourful costumes. Loud music, with dancers mouthing the words. Routines that tell a story, not just demonstrate ability. And an enhanced male presence. All this and a tribute to the legendary pop idol Michael Jackson, including a grand finale that saw the over 150 dancers dressed in black and each sporting a Michael Jackson trademark white glove. This and more made the 30 routine, two hour long annual year-end dance show at South Carleton High School in Richmond a spectacular, entertaining, memorable happening last week. Costumes ranged from colourful clowns to Mad Hatters and the “I’m late, I’m late for a very important date” white rabbit from Alice in Wonderland to those that glittered in the spotlights to those depicting witches. And props like a car grill and a park bench and a riveting blazing fire in the background. All this capped with a six routine tribute to Michael Jackson, all danced to some of his greatest songs such as “Man in the Mirror” (complete with three mirrors on stage), “Bad”, “Smooth Criminal” and “Scream.” The tribute culminated, as did the dance show itself, with the white-gloved grand finale danced to the famous “Beat It.” The dance show itself featured a total of 30 routines, featuring dancers from grade 9 WANDA KEENAN PHOTO through grade 12, performing dances from Student Warren Perry lifts up fellow student hip hop to tap to jazz to lyrical. While most were group routines, there were Emily Hill as they perform in the routine “Happy Ending” in the annual dance show at South two solos, one by Kaleigh Brown in the first half and one by tap dancer Cassie Warren in Carleton High School in Richmond last week.

the second half. There was also a duet performed and choreographed by students Lauren Willing and Chris Stuewe who also were peer teachers for the dance show program. Peer teaching is a program at South Carleton where students interested in a teaching career have an opportunity to work with SCHS teachers. At the conclusion of the dance show on Friday, May 28, the second of its two night run, dance teachers Stacey Hamilton and Leslie Jaeggin thanked the students who worked behind the scenes as the technical crew and those who helped in other ways such as selling tickets, thanked the parents and grandparents for their work in making the costumes for the production (Bonnie

The meeting, which was attended by about 150 people, was an evening full of presentations by engineer Andy Robinson of Robinson Consultants, city lawyer Tim Marc and affected landowners. It was made clear that landowners, in signing the petition to seek the municipal drain,

had expected costs in the range of $200,000 to $300,000 in total. The ultimate cost as per the engineer’s report of $1.64 million, with landowners being responsible for $1.2 million of this has resulted in individual landowner costs far in excess of what was initially envisioned.

It was suggested at the meeting that the drain works might be limited to a two kilometer area between Fernbank and Flewellyn Roads in Goulbourn rather than the 14 kilometers covered by the engineer’s report. However, engineer Andy Robinson made it clear to the committee that if the report were referred back to him for such a possible narrowing of the scope of the work to be done, he would be returning with the same report because of his responsibilities as a professional engineer to ensure an adequate outlet for a municipal drain. This requires work being done downstream as






When close friend and Ottawa 67’s general manager Brian Kilrea gave the shifty left winger from Stittsville a ringing endorsement, Vince Malette had to check him out for himself. And when the Kanata Stallions head coach saw that shifty forward – Spenser Cobbold of the Ottawa Valley Titans – first hand last season, he couldn’t help but be impressed with the player’s efforts. “When I went out to see him play, what Brian told me is what I saw,” Malette said. “He’s a hard working kid, he skates and competes hard, and he can provide some offence.” So it came with little surprise that the Stallions made the 15 year old Stittsville native the second overall pick in the 2010 Central Hockey League draft on Wednesday, May 19 at the Earl Armstrong Arena. Offence was the signature of Cobbold’s game in the 2009-2010 season. The winger finished seventh in Ontario East Minor Hockey League minor midget AAA scoring last season with 51 points in 29 games. Even though his regular season point total was only good for fourth best on the Titans and his 15 playoff points were third highest on the team, Cobbold’s skills were easy to spot because of all of his intangibles. “On that team, Killer (Kilrea) told me that was one of his favourite players,” Malette said, adding that Kildrea’s opinion was important considering that they coached together with the 67’s for nine years. “He was continuously working at both ends of the rink,” Malette explained about Cobbold. “You could pick him out in the game because of his hard work and he went hard to the net. He played defence hard in the zone as well.” “We’re hoping to have him on the roster (for next season),” he added. And Cobbold is hoping to be there too. Though he knows there will be some growing paints after a re-

ing for a Mississauga team that is expected to rebuild in the 2011-2012 season, he has his sights right now set on playing in Kanata next season. Malette said the team is in the midst of recruiting a few older players because the Stallions will host the Fred Page Cup next season. However, the Stallions also want to have good young player like Cobbold. And Cobbold believes he fits the bill. “Offensively I think I can put up a couple of points Spenser Cobbold this year and score some goals,” he said.

The junior football season is over for the South Carleton High School Storm. After compiling a winning regular season record of four wins and only two losses, the Storm lost 10-0 to the St. Mark High School Lions in a quarter-final playoff game at the Bob Erwin Field at South Carleton in Richmond on Thursday, May 27. A scoreless first quarter was followed by a scoreless second quarter, although both teams came close to scoring in this second quarter. The Storm drove downfield for about 50 yards before losing the ball on downs at the St. Mark seven yard line. A pass to running back Cody Nicoll was one of the big plays in this drive which featured a series of running plays. After losing the ball on downs, though, the Storm got it right back when defensive end Nic Miklaucic recovered a St. Mark fumble on the four yard line. However, the Storm were unable to penetrate the St. Mark defense and tried a field goal on third down, with Adam McLean as the kicker. However, this field goal attempt was blocked and St. Mark took over on their own 19 yard line, with the score still tied 0-0. But St. Mark then moved in the wrong direction, finally ending up with third down on their own one yard line after a generous spot by the referees, subverting what many onlookers felt was a safety touch. In any case, St. Mark punted with the Storm taking over on the St. Mark 35 yard line. A pass to Brett Adams from quarterback Blair Stewart took the ball to the St. Mark 20 yard line. With three minutes left in the first half, quarterback Stewart tried a pass to receiver Andy Baxter which was intercepted by a St. Mark defender who was off to the races, sprinting downfield toward the Storm goal line in the distance. The Storm’s Andy Baxter sped after him and eventually tackled him on the Storm 20 yard line. This led to an attempted St. Mark field goal which went wide, with Harley Eastman running the ball back to the 25 yard line for the Storm. The half eventually ended with the game still tied 0-0 despite these scoring chances by both teams. In the second half, St. Mark rallied for ten points while the Storm were held scoreless, meaning that St. Mark moves on in the playoffs while the Storm’s season is finished.

Snoring and sleep apnea can cause you to lack quality sleep, making you sleepy throughout the day. A dentist can make an appliance (retainer or mouthguard) that will bring your chin forward and in turn open up your airway and stop you snoring and apnea. Call and ask your dentist or us about snoring and sleep apnea appliances today

Are electrolysis treatments covered under health insurance?


Yes, most extended health plans cover facial electrolysis treatments. The majority of physicians realize that facial hair on women can cause extreme anxiety and embarrassment affecting their self esteem. Call your insurance provider and ask what their policy is concerning electrolysis treatments. They may ask for a letter from your doctor or hormone tests may be required. Most health plans will cover a certain amount per treatment or up to a maximum dollar amount per year, very much like the coverage you get for massage treatments. Request a receipt from your electrologist on a monthly basis or as often as you send in your claim statement.

Automotive Q

Why does my A/C system lose its charge over the winter?


A/C refrigerant can only be lost via a leak. It does not evaporate, which is a common misconception. The proper way of repairing this is to find the leaking component and replace it. A/C refrigerant is poisonous and should only be handled by certified technicians.

“The smaller they are, the higher the sound they make,” Mr. Dawber explained to the students as each of the various instruments was played by an individual student to demonstrate the sound that the instrument makes. Mr. Dawber also explained and demonstrated the percussion section with its cymbals, drums, tambourine, triangle, cabasa and the like. For the cymbals and drums, he told the story of the Persian military band which preceded its army into battle, creating such a loud and scary situation that usually the enemy was driven away before engaging in any fighting. Indeed, the clash of the cymbals and the boom of the drums just in the concert band created a murmur of excitement and awe in the student audience, proof that having thousands or hundreds of these playing together as with the Persian military band would be not only loud but certainly frightening as well. Mr. Dawber also explained about the brass section with its trumpets, trombones and euphonium. Other instruments include the French horn and tuba. The Sacred Heart concert band

also demonstrated different types of music, starting off with an overture with its quiet and fast parts, going into a couple of slowerpaced river-oriented songs before playing a march, complete with student participation as marchers, and even playing a tango dance song, with more student participation. Mr. Dawber explained that concert bands play music from many countries. “There’s all kinds of music from FUTURE SHOP- CORRECTION NOTICE Bell BlackBerry Pearl Prepaid 10145300.

JOHN CURRY NEWS STAFF Music, music, music. The gymnasium at Guardian Angels Catholic School in Stittsville was filled with music on Friday morning, May 28 as the senior concert band from Sacred Heart Catholic High School paid a visit. Students filled the gymnasium not only to hear the music played by the band but also to learn a little something about the instruments being used to create the music. Indeed, band director and Sacred Heart music teacher Matt Dawber, in between the musical offerings of the band, explained to the students about the three sections of a concert band and also about the various instruments found in each section. He started off with the band’s woodwind section which encompasses instruments such as the bassoon, the oboe, the clarinet, the saxophone, the alto saxophone, the baritone saxophone, the flute and the piccolo. These instruments range in size from the large baritone saxophone and the long bassoon to the petite piccolo.

Jungle theme for programs CATHERINE FLEGG SPECIAL TO THE NEWS The jungle is wild at the Stittsville branch of the Ottawa Public Library this summer. Special programs for children and families all will have a jungle theme, making for a wild summer. The TD Summer Reading Club (SRC) for children will have the theme “Destination Jungle” this year. Young readers who join the SRC will receive a poster, stickers and an activity book. The challenge again this summer for SRC members will be to read all through the summer books of their choice at their reading level or even above. The books can be on any topic that interests them, not just jungles. The SRC member can fill out a ballot for every book read and enter the ballot or ballots in a weekly prize draw. Just by joining the SRC, a young reader may take a guess at the number of candies in a jar on display at the library. The best guess wins the jar. There is also going to be a Jungle Maze where young readers can drop in a marble for each book read. Sign up date for the TD Summer Reading Club at the Stittsville library will be Wednesday, June 23. The jungle theme is also carrying over into the weekly programs being offered at the Stittsville library this summer, as well as into the two special family programs that will be presented. The weekly programs will run for one hour on Tuesdays, beginning on June 29 and run-

ning until Aug. 17. The program for children aged 5 to 7 will be offered at 10:30 a.m. on these Tuesdays while the programs for children aged 8-12 will be offered at 1 p.m. on these Tuesdays. The two special programs being offered at the Stittsville library this summer will both have a jungle theme to them as well. At the first of these programs, called “Money Safari,” youngsters will be able to create their own jungle currency using different printing techniques. They will be able to discover artifacts and currencies from jungles around the world courtesy of the Bank of Canada. This program, which is suitable for whole families, will be offered on Thursday, July 22 at 10:30 a.m. The second special presentation this summer at the Stittsville library will be held on Wednesday, Aug. 4 at 2 p.m. At this presentation, those attending, both young and family members, will learn about percussion instruments from around the world and will be able to create jungle sound-scapes with musician Alicia Borisonik. Both of these special programs will run for 45 minutes. These weekly and special programs this summer at the Stittsville library are free but registration is required. Registration is now open and can be done online at www. by clicking on library programs. Children and adults must have a library card to register. For more information or for any questions, please call the Stittsville library branch at 613-836-3381.
