The Rhodes scholarship at the University of Oxford in England is the oldest and perhaps most prestigious international scholarship program in the world. A Rhodes scholarship is often viewed as an investment in an individual of remarkable promise rather than support for a particular program of postgraduate study. One of these individuals who has been awarded a Rhodes scholarship and will be attending Oxford this fall to begin two years of study there hails from Stittsville. He is 21 year old Brendan Alexander who will be graduating this year at the Royal Military College (RMC) in Kingston where he has studied history and economics. “Growing up in Stittsville has definitely had an impact on who I am today,� Brendan wrote in an email response.

Florals and more in exhibit of Bernice Wills’ art JOHN CURRY


hair studio Stittsville

Scissors is

Stittsville artist Bernice Wills loves to paint florals but for her exhibition on the ArtSpace wall at the Stittsville branch of the Ottawa Public Library this month, she included eight paintings which show some of the variety of subjects which she paints. There are, of course, three floral paintings among those on display but there are others such as two still life paintings, two landscapes and one entitled “A Little Girl’s Dream,” featuring a pair of dancing shoes. All eight paintings are framed and range in price from $175 to $275. But, of course, these paintings are on exhibit at the library not so much for purchase (although artists do appreciate any sales) but for enjoyment. And there is enjoyment to be found. Just read the comment about Bernice’s paintings which Judie Marsden of Stittsville wrote in the comment book at the exhibit: “Your watercolours are always beautifully uplifting.” Indeed, those who do visit the exhibit or just find themselves walking past it while browsing through the stacks at the library should make a point to leave a remark or impression in the comment book at the exhibit. Even the briefest of comments can make the day for an artist and it’s a nice way to tell them that their artistic efforts are appreciated and enjoyed. Bernice Wills of Stittsville began painting with oils in the 1960’s but her art efforts were curtailed for some time

as she travelled with her husband on his military postings. This, though, did expose her to many landscapes around the world, benefitting her future art work. Bernice started to paint again in 1985 but switched from oils to watercolours, as she explains: “The medium is very challenging, but I find it more suitable to my approach where I look for light and colour in my subject, be it landscape, floral or still life.” “The landscapes are inspired from travelling and the many pictures taken,” she adds. She is a regular participant in the annual Stittsville Artists Studio Tour which she enjoys since people come to her home studio to see her art and also to talk about art. Bernice’s art received the “Gallery Choice” award at the Kanata Art Club’s juried show in 1998 and she has received several honours from various Nepean Fine Art League shows from 2001 through 2009. Her paintings can be found in private collections not only in Canada but in England, Australia, South Africa and Japan. Recently three of her paintings were on display at the Hamilton Art Gallery. The exhibition of Bernice Wills’ art on the ArtSpace wall in the back right corner of the Stittsville branch of the Ottawa Public Library will continue on display until the end of January. It is accompanied by an exhibit of hand crafted boxes by Geoff Randall of Stittsville which can be found in the display case located at the ArtSpace wall.

Audrey Bobier loved her family, church and community JOHN CURRY

Audrey Bobier, a Goulbourn native who treasured her family, her church and her community, passed away on Tuesday, Jan. 4, 2011. She was 78. She had deep Goulbourn roots on both sides of her family. Daughter of the late Herman and Lillian Cassidy, she was one of a Goulbourn family of four with her brothers Harold, Ebert and Lorne, all of whom have predeceased her. Her brother Lorne be-

came a respected educator and in 1991, the then-Carleton Board of Education named an elementary school being constructed on Hobin Street in Stittsville as A. Lorne Cassidy Elementary School. He had served as president

Audrey Bobier

of the Ontario Council for Exceptional Children and was an honourary life member of the Ontario Association for Curriculum Development. He was a superintendent of schools for the Carleton Board. But this Stittsville school is not the only area building to which Audrey had close ties. The Bobier family’s relationship to Christ Church Ashton goes back to its very beginnings as John Bobier was the stonemason for the original church building which was constructed in 1845.

items in the church today comes from the Bobier family and there is a pew bearing the Bobier name. Audrey was a faithful parishioner of Christ Church Ashton which is where her funeral service was held on Friday, Jan. 7, with a standing-room only crowd of mourners filling the church. Rev. Jim Kirkpatrick, rector of Christ Church Ashton, gave the homily while hymns sang during the service included “In the Garden,” “Amazing Grace,” and “What a Friend We Have in Jesus.” Audrey was passionate about Goulbourn’s heri-

tage. For many years, she sat on the Board of Directors and then the Museum Committee for the Goulbourn Museum. She was a longtime member of the Goulbourn Township Historical Society and was an invaluable source of information on local families, schools and the general history of the community. She was instrumental in the leadership of the Jock River Seniors group when it was meeting regularly in Ashton for cards and fellowship. In all of her endeavours and involvements, Audrey always demonstrated a

great sense of humour. She was predeceased by her husband, the late J. Sydney Bobier as well as by a son Robert who died tragically almost two years ago. She is survived by her sons David and Harold and five grandchildren as well as by many nieces and nephews. She will be fondly remembered by many neighbours and friends. Interment will take place in the Christ Church Ashton parish cemetery in the spring. In memoriam donations to Christ Church Ashton would be appreciated by the family.

4™ State Farm Insurance Companies • Canadian Head Offices: Aurora, Ontario

From page 1 While he attended Ashbury College in Ottawa from grades 4 through 12, he remained very involved in a wide range of sports, camps and other Stittsville-based activities during his childhood. “It was a great community in which to grow up and it is the only place I would truly call home,” he added in his email. Brendan will be leaving for the University of Oxford in late September, with his first term there beginning in early October. He will be studying at Oxford for two years, completing a Master of Philosophy in International Relations. And while he will be studying international relations, his thesis will likely focus on guerrilla warfare and counterinsurgency which are the areas where his academic interests to date have been. More specifically, he will probably be studying the relations between states which are involved in such guerrilla wars and the local governments with which they collaborate to defeat such an insurgency. At Oxford, his educational experience will include both taught and individual research elements. His first year starting this fall will consist largely of classes, lectures, seminars and one-on-one tutoring with an academic advisor. His second year will largely be taken up with writing his thesis. This spring Brendan will be commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the Royal Canadian Artillery and he will retain this rank while studying at Oxford, including continuing to receive his salary. However, his Oxford studying will add two more years of mandatory service that he will owe the Canadian Forces, adding to the five that he will already owe upon graduation at RMC. When he is finished at Oxford, he will resume his career as an artillery officer in the Canadian Forces. Right now he does not know if he will make the Canadian Forces a lifelong career but he does admit that he has enjoyed his military involvement to date. One future possibility might be teaching, perhaps returning to RMC as a professor. He feels that his military training and study regimen at RMC helped him meet the Rhodes scholarship criteria. Indeed, RMC, whose motto is “Truth, Duty, Valour,” is designed to produce officers with the exact qualities sought in Rhodes scholarship candidates. Brendan feels that his RMC expe-

rience set him apartment from other Rhodes scholarship candidates. While he had the academic credentials, he also had, through his military commitment, shown his willingness to “fight the world’s fight,” which was a rallying call for public service used by Rhodes scholarship founder Cecil Rhodes in setting up the scholarship program. The thought of applying for a Rhodes scholarship was first planted in his mind way back at the end of his first year at RMC by his mother who made the suggestion after Brendan had done well in both his military and academic pursuits that year. He did not take his mother’s suggestion seriously at first but the seed that had been planted took root in his fourth year at RMC when he heard a presentation on the Rhodes scholarship program, specifically about how well-rounded RMC cadets were ideal candidates for the scholarship. By this point, Brendan had been active at RMC not only in academics but in sports, music, art and volunteer work, so he thought that he might as well, as he puts it, “give it a shot” and that’s what he did, with the outcome being that he was one of the 11 Canadians selected to be a Rhodes scholar starting in 2011. Besides being a fourth year Officer Cadet at RMC, he has held a variety of leadership positions there as well as serving as a Troop Commander in the Royal Canadian Artillery. The day-to-day activities at RMC are run entirely by cadet leadership in order to develop leaders. In his last semester, Brendan was selected as a Cadet Squadron Leader, placing him in command of about 80 cadets. As such, he was responsible for their training, physical fitness, discipline, dress, deportment, passing of orders and coordination with other RMC squadrons. “The exceptional leadership training we receive at RMC and during our summer military training is what sets RMC apart from other civilian universities,” Brendan comments. Last summer, Brendan completed his Phase 3 Troop Commander qualification at Valcartier in Quebec. This past fall, he was awarded the Nicola Goddard artillery sword. But his time at RMC has been more than just studies and leadership training. He has been playing music in one capacity or another since being in grade three. He has his Grade 10 accreditation from the Royal Conserva-

tory of Music in piano and he played clarinet and baritone saxophone in the jazz and concert bands at Ashbury College. At RMC, he has played piano in the RMC stage band while also playing acoustic guitar on his own time. He is also very involved in art, specifically working in pastel and pen and ink as well as photography. Indeed, Brendan hopes to continue his involvement with both music and art while at Oxford, likely through informal student clubs, associations, choral groups and orchestras. Brendan also is active physically, including running, weightlifting, soccer, hockey and coaching the RMC Combat Fitness Club. Brendan’s selection for a Rhodes scholarship has resulted in expressions of praise from those at RMC. “This recognition not only speaks to the incredible talents of Officer Cadet Alexander, but also to the tremendous success of the RMC program,” said Commodore William Truelove, Commandant of RMC. “We are extremely proud of Mr. Alexander and feel that his selection reflects well not only upon him personally but also on the entire RMC cadet community,” said RMC principal Joel Sokolsky. “He is a role model on our campus of an individual who is exceptionally well rounded and accomplished,” said associate professor Laura Robinson of the Department of English at RMC. “As a dynamic leader, a promising scholar, an amazing athlete, a compassionate and generous volunteer, a talented musician and a well rounded, creative and imaginative individual (not to mention a cool guy), Brendan is well deserving of this prestigious scholarship,” RMC English professor Michael Hurley wrote. Up until now, there have been 12 Rhodes scholars who attended RMC as cadets, going back to 1946. Only 11 Canadians a year are selected to join the 84 Rhodes scholars from around the world who attend the University of Oxford. Intellectual excellence is required of Rhodes scholars but selection involves more than just educational accomplishments. Cecil Rhodes, founder of the Rhodes scholarship program in 1902, emphasized in his will that these scholarships were to be an investment in and development of outstanding leaders who would be motivated to “fight the world’s fight.” See RHODES, page 5

From page 4 His four criteria for selection, as outlined in his will, were literary and scholastic attainments; energy to use one’s talents to the full; truth, courage, devotion to duty, sympathy for and protection of the week, kindliness, unselfishness and fellowship; and moral force of character and instincts to lead and to take an interest in one’s fellow beings. Rhodes, a British born entrepreneur who made a fortune on diamond mines in southern Africa, was himself a graduate of the University of Oxford in 1882. Oxford is the oldest university in the English speaking world and is unique for its system of intimate tutorial education and residential colleges. Rhodes wanted his scholarship recipients to benefit from their time at Oxford and hoped that Rhodes scholars would go on to engage in work that would show their concern for others and would make a positive difference in the world. Canadian Rhodes scholars have include former Prime Minister John Turner, for New Democratic Party leader David Lewis, former Saskatchewan premier Allen Blakeney, former Newfound premier Danny Williams, former Ontario premier Bob Rae, and neurosurgeon Wilder Penfield. A Rhodes scholarship includes tuition, college fees and a stipend covering living expenses for two years at the University of Oxford. The scholarship is considered worth at least $50,000 per year.

Stittsville director for Rat Pack show JOHN CURRY

Brendan Alexander of Stittsville, who graduates from Royal Military College in Kingston this year, is off to the University of Oxford in England this fall, having been accepted as a Rhodes scholar.

The Rat Pack, made famous by Sammy Davis, Jr., Frank Sinatra and Dean martin, is making a comeback. Well, not the real Rat Pack in person but a group that is going to perform in their style. It’s all thanks to Suzart Productions, the Ottawa musical theatre company, that has included “The Rat Pack Lounge” musical among its 2011 offerings. And Ellen Seguin of Stittsville, who directed Suzart Productions’ most recent show “Willy Wonka,” will be the director for “The Rat Pack Lounge.” This will be Suzart Productions’ dinner theatre show for 2011 and will run in August at the Woodroffe United Church in Ottawa. The story of “The Rat Pack Lounge” is about a diner in trouble. God sends the Rat Pack back down to earth for one more show to help out the diner. The show includes 29 of the Rat Pack’s most memorable songs which are intertwined in the story. Among the characters in the story are Bobby Goldberg/Sammy Davis Jr., a bartender at the diner whose body gets taken over by Sammy Davis Jr. He sings, dances and acts as well as does impressions of famous stars; William Saunders/Frank Sinatra, a man who gets his body taken over by Frank Sinatra; and Jeorge Rodrigues/Dean

Martin, a chauffeur whose body is taken over by Dean Martin so that he must be able to sing, act and perform like a drunken Dean Martin. There are also other characters such as an Angie Dickinson femme fatale and a depressed diner owner who is being helped by the heaven-sent Rat Pack. In any case, Suzart Productions is now on the lookout for actors to play these roles in “The Rat Pack Lounge.” Auditions for “The Rat Pack Lounge” are taking place this Sunday, Jan. 16 starting at 2:30 p.m. at the Woodroffe United Church. Those interested in auditioning should call 613-828-3500 to make an appointment or should send an email to The same afternoon, Sunday, Jan. 16, but at 1:30 p.m. will be auditions held for another Suzart Productions musical, “hats!” which will be presented in June at Ashbury College. “Hats!” is a new musical about a woman who is about to turn 50 until she meets several other women who her about fun and friendship. There are numerous fun-loving characters in this show and Suzart Productions is looking for women over the age of 50 to play these roles. As with the audtions for “The Rat Pack Lounge,” those interested in auditioning should phone 613-828-3500 or email to make an appointment.

Cydney Roesler of Stittsville on silver medal winning team JOHN CURRY

Stittsville was represented on Canada’s national women’s under-18 hockey team that won the silver medals at the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) world under-18 championship in Sweden last week. Cydney Roesler, 16, daughter of Ky and Terri Roesler of Stittsville, was one of six defencemen on the team. The tournament, played in Stockholm, Sweden, saw Canada win three straight games in preliminary round play, advancing to a semi-final game on Friday, Jan. 7. the victories in the preliminary round were 9-1 over Switzerland, 6-0 over Finland and 8-1 over Germany. In the semi-final game against Finland, Canada prevailed by a 6-1 score, with Cydney Roesler scoring one of the Canada goals on a power play. Finland went on to win the tournament’s bronze medals. Canada went on to play the United States in the championship final on Saturday, Jan. 8, losing by a 5-2 score. Canada had entered the tournament as the defending champions, having won gold at the under-18 women’s world championship in Chicago last April. Canada and the United States have met in all four gold medal championship games in the history of the IIHF women’s under-

18 world championship. Canada has only won once, in the Chicago tournament. Cydney Roesler was one of 20 players on the Canadian team at the 2011 IIHF women’s under-18 world championship. She made the team after attending its national selection camp from Dec. 17 to 19 in Toronto where there were ten defensemen competing for the six spots on the roster. Last August, Cydney had played for Canada in a three game series against the United States at Lake Placid, New York where she was one of seven defensemen on the team. The United States defeated Canada in all three games. Cydney was held scoreless in the games, although she picked up 14 minutes in penalties, the most on the Canadian squad. Cydney had attended the national women’s program’s strength and conditioning camp in Calgary, Alberta in May, 2010. Cydney, who shoots right, stands 5 foot, nine inches tall and weighs 159 pounds, grew up playing for Stittsville Minor Hockey and Goulbourn Rams teams before switching to women’s hockey in the 2008-2009 season. She made the switch because it had to be done at some point and she wanted to put herself in a position to get a hockey scholarship to an American university if possible. She had played the 2007-

2008 season with the Ottawa Valley Silver Seven, an elite boys’ program team. Prior to that, she had won a playoff championship with the Goulbourn Rams peewee AA boys team in 2006, was captain of the playoff champion Goulbourn Rams atom AA team in 2005 and won the Bell Capital Cup with the Goulbourn Rams in 2004. Her club team now is the Ottawa Senators of the women’s hockey league. In the 2009-2010 season with the Senators, she scored 4 goals and had 18 assists in 34 games, while picking up 28 minutes in penalties. She also played seven playoff games, getting three assists. Cydney, who attends South Carleton High School in Richmond and will be turning 17 on Feb. 21, views herself as a playmaking defenseman who likes to play both on the power play and on the penalty kill group. She lists women’s team captain Hayley Wickenheiser as her favourite female athlete with the Ottawa Senators being her favourite team.

Cydney Roesler both honoured and inspired JOHN CURRY

Cydney Roesler of Stittsville has a host of feelings resulting from her participation as a member of Team Canada in the 2011 women’s under-18 world hockey championship in Sweden. She felt honoured putting on a Team Canada jersey as well as a great sense of accomplishment. “The jersey represented who we were playing for and to be able to represent my country at 16 is something I’ve always dreamed of,” Cydney replied in an email interview. And as for pressure from playing for the national team, she turned this into a positive, knowing that playing for her country would only make her work harder to achieve the dream of winning the championship. She keyed in on the word “inspiring” in describing her world championship experience. “It was an incredible opportunity that I will always remember but it has also inspired me to work even harder with hopes of winning the gold medal next

year and in the future, playing on the Canadian Olympic team,” she observed. Because she is only 16 now, she is eligible for next year’s women’s under 18 world hockey championship and she is already looking forward to the chance of competing for the gold again. Cydney says that her world championship experience will be something not only that she will always cherish but also that will help her in her development as a player. “I will take the information that I have learned over the past two weeks and continue to build on becoming a better hockey player,” she wrote in her email interview. She did not face any challenges playing on the larger European ice surface because of previous experience playing on such surfaces but she admits to being surprised at the caliber of play of some of the other teams in the competition. “The European teams had some talented players on their rosters but not the depth that the North American teams had,” Cydney says. She admits that Canada did not play its best game as a

team in the Jan. 8 championship game against the winning United States squad, noting that the U.S. team capitalized on its opportunities whereas Team Canada did not. “We definitely had great moments where we forechecked hard and created scoring oppor-

tunities but we just had a difficult time putting the puck in the net,” she writes about this championship game in which Canada lost 5-2 to the Americans. Cydney describes herself as more of an offensive defenseman, rushing the puck and

creating scoring opportunities when opportunities arise. She notes that in the world championship in Stockholm, Sweden she played on Canada’s power play which gave her the opportunity to earn a few assists and even score her first international goal.

The Carp Road landfill expansion is back front and centre now that the provincial government has approved the Terms of Reference for the Environmental Assessment related to the creation of a new landfill footprint at the site. Next week the first in what we are sure will be a number of public open houses about the proposed new landfill site will be held, with the sessions taking place in Carp, Kanata and here in Stittsville. Public input will be vital in the ultimate resolution of this issue, one way or the other. That is why it is important that residents, particularly in Stittsville which is the nearest community to the landfill site, stay abreast of the latest developments and

submit their comments. We know that there are some who want no new landfill on that site whatsoever. This is a viewpoint that is legitimate but it must also be a viewpoint that can be defended reasonably and scientifically. There are others who are willing to give a new landfill on that site a chance, given the improvements that have happened of late at the site and the decline in the problems emanating from it. Just what view will win the day in the end is not known at the present time but it would seem that it only makes sense that the community should cover all bases and be prepared for whatever the outcome might be. That is why issues such as community benefits coming

from Waste Management, owners of the landfill site, should receive significant attention during the Environmental Assessment process. We cannot, as a community, put all of our eggs in the basket of provincial rejection of the whole proposal. We have to be prepared that the new landfill site may be approved, either as proposed or altered. If a new landfill is approved, then the community had better be getting significant benefits from its presence. This means annual community contributions that can be used for environmental projects, recreational facilities, or other community needs. We have to, as a community, ensure that these are sufficient and not just a token amount.


Warning: Watch out for new warning labels We enter the new year with stronger warning labels on cigarette packages. Does it seem like we’ve entered every new year with stronger warning labels on cigarette packages? And have those stronger warning labels worked? Good question. Something is working, at least in the long term. Way fewer people smoke now than did 25 years ago. If you are old enough to have been smoking 25 years ago, you will remember New Years Eve parties where everybody smoked. And you will count up the number of those people who still smoke, and find almost none. So clearly something is working. And the warning labels are a lot stronger now than they were 25 years ago. So, is that it? Probably not. What else changed in those years? Well, social pressure is a big one. Suddenly, it was not cool to smoke, especially if you were an adult. Hosts stopped supplying ash trays at their

CHARLES GORDON houses. Smokers had to step outside, where the odds are it would be cold, in this country. Offices banned smoking. Stores and movie theatres banned smoking. Malls banned smoking. Airports banned smoking. All of that made smoking a lot less convenient and a lot less fashionable. Suddenly, you were a pariah if you smoked. The most severely addicted would persevere. You can still see them, outside, huddled in the cold. Most others gave it up. To understand how much life here has changed, look back to the Sixties and Seventies where you could smoke a cigarette in the grocery store, light up in a university seminar room, on an airplane, in a movie theatre. If we could figure out what

caused this big shift in our thinking, we could use it to attack other social problems, as well as prevent the development of new smokers. However, one factor has to be cost. According to Mr. Google, you could buy a pack of smokes for $2.64 in 1985. Then prices more than doubled in the next decade. And the price paid now is double that again. Does it surprise you that fewer people will pay that price? The big factor in the increased cost is taxes. Raising taxes, always a delicate matter politically, can have some embarrassing side effects, such as the dramatic rise in cigarette smuggling in the early ’90s. Which may be why the federal government, rather than bumping up the cost of cigarette still further, chooses instead to bump up the horror factor in cigarette packaging. There is almost no political price to be paid for this. And if it really worked, it would be good to see the principle applied to other dangerous substances.

How about photos of rotted livers and mangled automobiles on liquor bottles and cases of beer? Not going to happen, you say. You’re probably right. And it probably doesn’t matter, anyway. As a society, we are frightened enough already, what with one thing and another. As graphic and sad as the new labels are, it’s not as if smokers were not aware before that they are doing something dangerous to their lives and others. The smart thing to do would be to make them pay more through higher taxes. Higher cigarette costs would be a

deterrent and the additional tax revenues would be useful in this age of high deficits. But there isn’t a government alive today that will risk increasing taxes. So we are left warning labels. If that’s what it is to be, maybe the labels should take a different approach. Clearly smokers aren’t afraid to die. But maybe they are afraid to be shunned.

RVA not opposed to proposed retail development JOHN CURRY

The Richmond Village Association (RVA) has withdrawn its Ontario Municipal Board appeal of the recent Official Plan Amendment dealing with development in Richmond but had the appeal not been withdrawn, the RVA was prepared to exclude from the appeal the proposed Colonnade Developments retail development proposal at the northeast corner of Perth Street and Shea Road in Richmond.

City of Ottawa Councillor Reports By Shad Qadri, Councillor Ward Six Stittsville City of Ottawa The City of Ottawa has finalized key dates for the 2011 Budget timetable and multiward public consultations. Council directed that the 2011 draft budget be prepared on the basis of a maximum 2.5 per cent tax increase. On January 19, 2011 Council will receive a City budget overview report and budget reports for each standing committee, Ottawa Police Services and Ottawa Public Library. 2011 Tax Supported Budget Timetable Dates for 2010 Budget standing committee meetings to listen to public delegations, review budgets, and recommend a budget to Council are: Tuesday, February 1:Finance and Economic Development Wednesday, February 2: Transportation Tuesday, February 8: Planning Thursday, February 10: Agriculture and Rural Affairs Tuesday, February 15: Environment Wednesday, February 16: Transit Commission Thursday, February 17: Community and Protective Services Residents are invited to attend one of the five multi-ward public consultations at the following dates: Tuesday, February 22 at the Nepean Sportsplex Halls A/B; Wednesday, February 23 at Holy Trinity Catholic School in Kanata; Thursday, February 24 at the Stuart Holmes Arena in Osgoode; Monday, February 28 at the Shenkman Arts Centre and Thursday, March 3 at City Hall (Andrew Haydon Hall.) The times for all these consultations are from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. The agenda for each consultation is as follows: A welcome by senior City staff representative followed by the Mayor’s opening remarks. There will also be Finance presentation and a Q&A moderated by senior City staff representative. Hard copies of the Budget-at-a-Glance and Finance presentation will be available for distribution. The Committee of the Whole budget deliberations and adoption of Budget 2011

The RVA Board of Directors, at its Jan. 4 meeting, gave approval for this exclusion to happen if the appeal were to be pursued. In the end, the RVA has withdrawn the whole appeal and so this exclusion was not necessary. Bruce Webster, the immediate past president of the RVA who was leading the RVA’s appeal, was in favour of excluding the Colonnade Developments site from the appeal since he feels that the ten acre retail development will have a positive impact on the village as

a whole. He acknowledges that there will be some impact from the development on some residents of Shea Road but stressed to the RVA Board of Directors that the development will be screened from the homes and the proposed entrance from Shea Road will be for service vehicles only, keeping traffic down on the road. The Colonnade Developments proposal includes a grocery store that would be up to 50 percent larger than the existing grocery store in the village, a Shoppers Drug Mart, a bank, possibly a Tim Hortons and various other smaller retail outlets.

The development will provide job opportunities for Richmond youth as well as for adults, Mr. Webster said, while noting that the development is still in the planning stages. In his view, the current Richmond Plaza could lose tenants to the new retail development. “It will become a derelict plaza, no question,” he said about the Richmond Plaza, stating that the plaza owners had made no major expenditures to maintain it except for patching some asphalt and doing some re-roofing.

Council adopts key dates for 2011 budget process are scheduled from Tuesday, March 8 to Thursday, March 10. 2011 Rate Supported Budget Timetable The Environment Committee will table the 2011 draft water and wastewater budget at its February 15 meeting and also hear public delegations at its March meeting as it considers the 2011 draft rate supported budget. Full council approves the 2011 rate supported budget on Wednesday, March 23. Have your say in the budget process as I encourage you to attend one of the scheduled public consultations. Your input and comments have a major impact when it comes time for Council to deliberate on the budget. Carp Landfill expansion EA process: Public consultations In November of last year, the Minister of Environment approved Waste Management’s proposal to proceed with an Environmental Assessment with the company’s proposed expansion to the West Carleton Environmental Centre. Part of the EA process is to proceed with a series of public consultations. The dates for these consultations are taking place on January 18 at the Carp Agricultural Hall located at 3790 Carp Road; January 19 at the Brookstreet Hotel located at 525 Leggett Drive and January 20 at the Stittsville Legion. All these sessions are from 4p.m to 8 p.m. At these sessions, you can learn more about the proposed West Carleton Environmental Centre and hear explanations of the components and the process for the EA. You will also have the opportunity to provide your opinions, views and concerns, and to discuss them directly with members of Waste Management. I an encouraging all residents to attend the sessions and ask the questions and express any concerns you may have regarding the proposal for a new landfill. City seeks public input for review of residential waste collection The City is reviewing residential garbage and recycling collection services and is seeking public input on the different

options being considered. The review is focused on the collection and processing of blue and black box material, the collection of Green Bin organic waste, as well as garbage (residual waste). The City’s Yellow Bag Program for small businesses, Household Hazardous Waste (HHW), and the Take it Back! program will also be examined. The Solid Waste Service Level Review (SLR) will determine if any changes to waste collection programs are needed prior to the renewal or renegotiation of waste collection contracts with private contractors. Different service level options are being considered, and include changes to the frequency of garbage, green bin and recycling pickup. Consultations with specific customer groups have been used to pre-screen different options. Broad-based consultations in January 2011 will include public outreach and an online questionnaire to obtain community feedback on the changes being considered. Thursday, January 13 from 5 to 9 p.m. at the Walter Baker Recreation Centre located at100 Malvern Dr; Saturday, January 15 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Rideau Centre located at 50 Rideau St.; Sunday, January 16 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Place d’Orléans located at110 Place d’Orléans Dr.; Saturday, January 22 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Carlingwood Mall located at 2121 Carlingwood Ave.; Sunday, January 23 from Noon to 4:30 p.m. at Herongate Mall located 1670 Heron Rd. and on Saturday, January 29 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Bayshore Shopping Centre located at 100 Bayshore Dr. Visit to learn more about the different service level options under consideration and to complete the questionnaire.

The Richmond Village Association (RVA) has withdrawn its Ontario Municipal Board appeal to the city of Ottawa’s Official Plan Amendment 88 dealing with development in Richmond. The RVA, through immediate past president Bruce Webster and treasurer Judy Wagdin, had submitted the appeal following Ottawa city council’s approval of the amendment last summer. The amendment had been the result of two years of work by city staff and a local steering committee, creating a Community Design Plan on which the Official Plan Amendment is based. The OMB hearing was all set to go last Monday, Jan. 10 but a meeting in the week before Christmas and continuing discussions last week resulted in the RVA withdrawing the appeal. Bruce Webster, who was ready to represent the RVA before the OMB even though he is not a lawyer and had summons papers ready to serve on potential witnesses, said that the decision to withdraw was pretty close to a 10th hour decision, if not quite an 11th hour decision. It was done only after the RVA felt that both the city and the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority now more fully recognize the RVA’s concerns regarding storm water management and the use of sump pumps in the proposed Mattamy Homes subdivision in the western part of the village. Mr. Webster had talked extensively with city staff as well as with an independent lawyer and while he feels that the RVA had a strong case to put forward, he feels that RVA concerns are now better understood by the city. He still contends that the whole Community Design Plan process undertaken by the city was faulty because of the involvement of the developer, Mattamy Homes. At its Jan. 4 meeting, the

or Environmental Assessment Act process without the withdrawal of the OMB appeal being used as a reason to dismiss such future appeals. However, the city has not made any commitment regarding the financial impact on existing residents if a communal

Board of Directors of the RVA gave Mr. Webster the authority to make the decision regarding the appeal and whether it would be withdrawn or not. In explaining the situation at the meeting, Mr. Webster said that the whole purpose of the appeal was to get across to the city that Richmond wants to remain a safe and healthy environment in which to raise families and live and where local business can flourish. He said that the city agrees with this premise. Mr. Webster, on behalf of the RVA, had before Christmas presented city officials with seven areas of concern by the RVA which brought about the OMB appeal. These include the need for a complete Environmental Assessment of the storm water management for the Mattamy lands; the requirement that the Mattamy development comply with normal city standards for foundation drainage and not sump pumps; development of a comprehensive plan to expand communal water services to the existing residents should the current shallow aquifer which provides much of the drinking water for the village be adversely impacted by the Mattamy development’s deep wells, with the cost to the tempered by the knowledge that the existing residents did not cause the aquifer failure; development by the city of a plan to remove extraneous in-flows to the village’s sewage collection system; that the city restrict the practice of combining the development of a Community Design Plan with a developer’s plans; that the developer pay appropriate infrastructure costs brought about by the proposed development; and that these development charges to exclusively directed towards recreation and other necessary infrastructure improvements in the village. The RVA was also assured by the city that it could still appeal any future Planning Act matter

Using native, exotic woods for boxes JOHN CURRY

There’s Pau Amarillo and Bubinga. There’s Chakte-kok. There’s Bloodwood. And what about Jarrah. And Zircote. Then there’s Canarywood, Goncalo Alves and Sapele. And perhaps the better known Spalted Hickory, Big Leaf Maple, Holly, Curly Maple and Bird’s Eye Maple. What are we talking about and how are they all related? Well, these are some of the native and exotic woods which are used for the boxes and small cabinets which Geoff Randall of Stittsville hand crafts. A display of his work is now on exhibit in the display cabinet in the ArtSpace area of the Stittsville branch of the Ottawa Public Library. The display will be there until the end of January. “It’s not a job, it’s a hobby,” Mr. Randall says about his box making. He explains that as retirement from his career as a research scientist in veterinary reproductive and recombinant DNA technologies was approaching several years ago, he began looking for a hobby that in retirement would be interJohn Curry photo esting, challenging and would offer Geoff Randall of Stittsville sits behind two of the boxes which a chance to develop a new set of he hand crafted and which are now on display at the Stittsville skills. He took a basic woodworking course at Algonquin College branch of the Ottawa Public Library.

as he had always worked with his hands in his career and thought such a course might provide an avenue to a retirement hobby. Well, it turned out that way as he made a playing card box for his family and when the work turned out to be acceptable, he was turned onto box making. He realized that box making would let him carry out complex, detailed joinery work in the confines of his small basement shop. Another plus was that box making does not require much wood and hence he did not need a lot of storage space. Indeed, his box making enables him to use small amounts of beautifully coloured and figured woods, from both domestic and exotic sources. But he likes keeping a fair amount of these woods on hand not just to have a good selection for box making but because, quite simply, as he puts it, “some is nice to look at.” Geoff ended up selling eight or nine of his hand made boxes before he actually retired and while he has honed his techniques since then, he still has fond memories of these early boxes. “Actually I got a lot of satisfaction out of making the early boxes,” he says. It has become a hobby that he has found very satisfying as it allows him to get an idea for a box and then take it through to comple-

tion. He has not made two boxes exactly the same since he started and readily admits that he makes the boxes for his own enjoyment. If others like and want them, then that’s icing on the cake. One of the challenges that he has found in box making is fitting the hinges properly so that the lid fits squarely all around. Another challenge is ensuring that any dovetail corners are tight and square. This is particularly important for the drawers in his bigger jewellery boxes. He purchases most of his exotic woods from a Bentley Avenue wood dealer while he buys his figured maple woods wherever he happens to see them. It is the mixing of various woods, with their different grains and colours, that appeals to Geoff. “Part of what I enjoy is mixing and matching the wood colours,” he says. One of the things about box making is that it is time consuming, not in actual hours of construction for a particular box but in the linear time frame required. For instance, a box may take three hours’ work but this may be spread out over a week. This is because the wood for a lid may be glued together but then it has to be allowed to dry before it can be sanded. See GEOFF, page 13

From page 12 So the work on any particular box is not continuous but is spread out over a number of days, with some being more time consuming than others depending on size and design. He uses a combination of hand and power tools in constructing the boxes, doing the fine finishing work with hand tools. At one time Geoff used tongue oil to finish the boxes but he found that it produced a high gloss finish which he did not particularly like. In addition, it has a smell to it that some do not like. While he does on occasion use shel-

lac finish, he mainly now uses walnut oil. He likes the fact that it is a natural finish that brings out the grain in the wood without leaving a high gloss on the surface. He also likes the fact that a customer, down the road, can easily obtain walnut oil if the box needs a mild touchup or refreshing. Most of Geoff ’s boxes are made of solid wood, although he does do some veneer finishes, a skill that he admits is something that he is learning to do. He admits that there is a little more work in doing veneers. His boxes range in price from $20 up to $500, with many in the $50 to $100 range. Price depends a lot on the wood used and other costs, such as surprisingly expen-

sive hinges. He takes the cost of the wood into consideration when planning a box but he admits that his main criteria in the selection of the woods for a box is “Does it look nice.” He does most of his box making in the winter when the weather is not good, as he has other pastimes such as gardening to occupy his time in the summer. Geoff does do commission work, made to order pieces. These are usually his larger jewellery boxes which he only does on order. Some of his pieces have even made it to the United States and the United Kingdom. His sales efforts have largely consisted of participation in the Glebe Community

Artisans Craft Fair from 2006 to the present; in the Red Trillium Studio Tour and the Maple Run Studio Tour as a guest artist from 2007 and 2008 onwards respectively; and in the Crown and Pumpkin Studio Tour in 2008. Geoff finds finds his box making hobby very satisfying and proudly puts his initials on the bottom of each box. He likes the way that the hobby keeps him just busy enough and while the boxes are a lot of work, he finds that they are fun to make. And if box sales allow him to buy his exotic and native woods and perhaps a new tool now and again, then he is in retirement heaven. Mr. Randall can be contacted at 613-8365526 or via email at

A semi-final shootout following double overtime. A final game double overtime. But thanks to playing their hearts out, lots of parental cheering and, just perhaps the coach’s lucky penny, the Stittsville Rams Bantam B2 house league team emerged as champions in the recent Bell Sensplex Holiday shootout tournament. The team started out the tournament on a Friday morning with a 3-2 loss despite outplaying its opponent. But victories in the team’s next two games, 5-0 and 32, gave the Rams a chance to move on to the quarter-finals. Finally, late on the Saturday evening, the team received word that it was in the quarter-finals, with the game on the Sunday morning. The Rams won this game 21 to move on to the semi-finals just two hours later. The Rams played their hearts out in this game which ended in a scoreless tie after regulation time. A first overtime period of four-on-four hockey solved nothing. So, it was on to a second overtime session, this time featuring three-on-three hockey. Again, nothing resolved. So, it was shootout time. Sam Hickey and Luka Raspopovic scored for the Rams in this shootout while goalie Thomas Rossell was stellar in the Rams net, with the Rams winning the shootout 2-1. It was now off to the finals, with coach Steve Roud in his pregame talk urging the players to leave everything on the ice in the game and give it their all, so that whatever happens, there will be no regrets. The Rams were down 1-0 with only three minutes left in the game but then the Rams scored to tie it up. The game went back and forth, with the parents cheering and coach Roud bearing his lucky penny. This championship game went into overtime, with the first overtime period solving nothing. So, it was into a second overtime period, the Rams’ second double overtime in two games and the team’s third game of the day. With just 47 seconds left in this second overtime period, Christian Twarog scored for the Rams, giving the team the tournament championship. 443258

The 3 Pillars of Team Excellence How to boost your staff ’s productivity and maximize employee motivation If you’re a manager or supervisor, have you noticed a decline in your staff ’s morale due to our downturn economy? If you’re a business owner or entrepreneur, do you stay up at nights trying to figure out ways to attract, manage, and retain quality employees? If you’re a leader of any group, team, or organization, have you ever experienced any type of stress and responsibility in keeping your members motivated to keep doing their jobs? If so, then you’re not alone, these are the realities of our new economy. This means we have to work harder and smarter to get the same results we did in the previous economy. If we maintain the status quo of taking our staff, employees, and team members for granted, they’ll eventually leave us, and then we’re in trouble.


What we need to focus on is how to better understand our staff members, how to reward and recognize our employees, and how to empower and energize our team members to build long-term trust and loyalty. The following 3 Pillars of Team Excellence are derived from having taught and trained over 6,000 private and public sector employees, children and adults, profit and non-profit organizations in the past 25 years. WN-HF-BV – Take the time to talk to understand what are their Wants and Needs? Dare to discuss their Hopes and Fears. Do you know what their Beliefs and Values are? By gathering this information, you’ll get a deeper understanding of “what is it that makes them tick”, and thereby increase your chances of getting the best out of them.

Team Building Events - When done properly, team building events have the power to supercharge your team and are an outstanding opportunity to: • Communicate with each other at a more meaningful level • Reward and recognize your staff for a job well done • Empower and energize your team members by saying, “I value you, I honour you, and I thank you.” “People don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care.” So now, you’ll take the time to understand WH-HF-BV and to reward and recognize your team members. Next step is to plan your next team building event in your calendar. You’ve done the golf tournament thing, probably had some sort of team lunch or dinner at some point, and now you’re looking for something new, original, and powerful. Black Belt Excellence is pleased to present our Warrior Team Builder – A Unique Martial Arts Team Building Experience. What if your staff all got to participate in an actual physical martial arts workout? Imagine if your employees got the chance to engage in team building activities and meaningful dialogue? Would you believe that you and your team members could actually break a wooden board, like you see on television or in the movies? Be a leader, apply The 3 Pillars of Team Excellence, take part of the movement towards rewarding and recognizing your staff in a new and exciting way, and empower and energize your team by booking your customized Warrior Team Builder this year.

THE YATES NATUROPATHIC CLINIC IS NOW EXPANDING Due to growing demand and the desire for even greater in-depth patient care Dr. Yates is expanding the Yates Naturopathic Clinic to better suit the needs of patients. The new clinic will include Carol Banens as a registered physiotherapist, Carol brings16 years of clinical experience and has been the Director of several major local physiotherapy clinics. The new clinic will incorporate acupuncture, massage therapy, hydrotherapy, IV vitamin therapy, facial rejuvenation, yoga and personal training. “It’s the integration of clinical knowledge and techniques of several modalities that will make this clinic so unique” says Dr. Yates, “we will have the ability to create treatment plans and programs with the greatest precision, covering all aspects of the individuals health and have the facilities to implement the plan”.

Phil Nguyen, B.Eng., CPF Black Belt Excellence Speaking Training Facilitation,

“People always told me it takes 5 years to build a practice, well within one year I was voted best acupuncturist in the city, within two years the clinic has expanded. I attribute this all to listening to the needs of each individual patient and creating unique treatment programs that get results.”

Call us at 613-599-3001 or visit us at 62 Stonehaven Drive in Bridlewood, Kanata

If you have been thinking about improving your health and energy or treating a chronic condition, then you need to book an appointment at the Yates Naturopathic Clinic.

Black Belt Excellence will be at the Health and Wellness Tradeshow on Saturday, January 15 at Scotia Bank Place, and we’d be happy to meet with you in person and help you achieve your team goals in 2011 and beyond.



Rewards and Recognition – What gets recognized gets repeated. When you see positive behaviour, recognize it, and it will surely be repeated. Do this instead of focusing on the negative, which just drains and demoralizes your staff. Whether it’s a formal employee recognition award program or a simple pat on the back, a written Thank You note, or a sincere word of praise, your team members will appreciate it.


Sister show for Robert Morris Colonials SPECIAL TO THE NEWS

It was a sister show for the Robert Morris University Colonials women’s hockey team on Saturday, Jan. 8.

Anyone who would like to drop in and see its many photos is most welcome to do so. The Legion thanks Kelly for this generous donation. CONCERT BAND The past year of 2010 was a banner year for the Stittsville concert band, especially with the band solidifying its partnership with the Stittsville legion. The concert band is actually three bands in one – a full concert band with approximately 40 members; a ten piece dinner band for formal functions; and a 17 piece dance group known as the Main and Abbott Dance Band. All together in 2010, these groups played a total of 20 engagements which is quite a number, especially with taking off the summer. The inaugural Stittsville Christmas Festival Concert on Friday, Dec. 10 proved to be a great success with over 200 performers and Max Keeping as MC. A Stittsville Legion colour party paid tribute to Canadian Forces members serving at home and abroad. The concert band has a number of events scheduled for 2011.

ment will be carried out according to the Terms of Reference which were approved by the Ontario Minister of the Environment on Nov. 25, 2010. The proposed new landfill for the Carp Road site is the only component of Waste Management’s proposed West Carleton Environmental Centre that requires Environmental Assessment approval under the Environmental Assessment Act. The purpose of the Environmental Assessment is to study the potential environmental effects of the proposed new landfill, including consideration and evaluation of alternatives and the management of potential environmental impacts. The proposed West Carleton Environmental Centre would include waste diversion and recycling operations, composting operations, renewable energy facilities, recreational lands for community uses and, of course, the new landfill for disposal of residual waste materials.




The public involvement part of the Environmental Assessment process that will lead to approval or not of a new landfill at Waste Management’s Carp Road site is starting. A series of three public open houses are being held next week to review the approved Terms of Reference for the Environmental Assessment and to introduce the study work plans related to the Environmental Assessment. The open houses will be happening on Tuesday, Jan. 18 at the Carp Agricultural Hall in Carp, on Wednesday, Jan. 19 at the Brookstreet Hotel in Kanata and on Thursday, Jan. 20 at the Stittsville Legion Hall in Stittsville. All of the open houses will run from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. These open houses are meant as an opportunity for members of the public to identify issues, interests or ideas that should be addressed during the Environmental Assessment.

Huskies #4 in province SPECIAL TO THE NEWS

The Sacred Heart Huskies are not only leading the West Division of the National Capital senior boys (tier 1) basketball league but also have cracked the top ten in the provincial high school rankings. The Huskies are the only Ottawa area team in the top ten. In the latest rankings, as of Jan. 3, for the top ten senior boys high school basketball teams in Ontario, the Huskies are

ranked number four, trailing only J.C. Richardson of Ajax, Vaughn of Toronto and Anderson of Whitby. In regular season play to date, the Huskies rattled off five straight wins before the Christmas break. The team returns to the court for more league action this week. These five straight wins have placed the Huskies in first place in the eight-team West division of the National Capital senior boys (tier 1) basketball league.

Third in Saskatchewan


The Sacred Heart Huskies captured third place in one of the most prestigious high school basketball tournaments in Canada. Playing in the 12 team Bedford Road Invitational Tournament (BRIT) in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, the Huskies defeated Sturgeon Heights Composite High School of Edmonton, Alberta 62-47 in the bronze medal game. The big clash in the tournament was the semifinal game between the Huskies and St. George’s of Vancouver which St. George’s won 41-36. St.

George’s, a top ten team in British Columbia, went on to win the tournament, defeating Centennial High School of Saskatoon 41-31 in the championship final. Sacred Heart had won two straight games before losing to St. George’s. The Huskies beat the host Bedford Road Collegiate team of Saskatoon 83-36 in their opening game and followed that up with a 61-53 victory over Garden City High School of Winnipeg. Garden City is the number one ranked high school team in Manitoba. Sean Stoqua of the Sacred Heart Catholic High

School Huskies was chosen as the tournament’s Most Valuable Player while his Husky teammate Vik Gill earned a spot on the tournament’s all-star team. This BRIT tournament, which dates back to 1968, attracts teams not only from Saskatchewan but also from other provinces. High schools in this year’s tournament included not only the Sacred Heart Huskies from Ontario but also included teams from Vancouver, B.C., Winnipeg, Manitoba and Calgary, Alberta, as well as from both Saskatoon and Regina in Saskatchewan.
