New life coming for landmark Old photos wanted

It’s a well known Stittsville landmark, one of the oldest structures in the community. And now it’s going to take on a new life thanks to pet photographer Suzanne Bird. The landmark is the log building that stands along Abbott Street at the eastern end of Village Square Park in the heart of the community. Ms. Bird has purchased the building and is now making plans to make it the headquarters for her business, Urban Dog Photog, which until now has been a homebased business. One of her greatest desires is to obtain any old photographs which may show the building, believed to have been built in the 1800’s, probably with the coming of the railway to Stittsville in 1870 or shortly thereafter. See LOG BARN, page 2

owned by Ms. Bird. The Historical Society and certainly Ms. Bird would be most appreciative of any old photos which come forward in this competition. While Ms. Bird now has an architect working on how to renovate the old barn building to make it habitable for her business, she is adamant that the exterior will remain as much as is as possible. “I don’t want to change it, keep it as is,� she told members of the Rotary Club of Ottawa – Goulbourn at a recent meeting at which she spoke mainly about her pet photography business but also touched on her acquisition of the log barn and its future. “I love this barn,� she said last Saturday while at the barn. The idea is to create what would amount to a building within the current building, so that its current exterior could be preserved as

vations. While she believes that the giant cedar logs that make up the barn’s walls are in good condition, she notes the snow piled against the lower logs and wants to be able to keep the area clear of snow as soon as possible, preserving the logs. Ms. Bird, who grew up in Stittsvlle and now lives in the area, admits that she often drove by the building and its for sale sign which was on display there for several years. She always loved the little barn and its look and one day before last year’s Artists and Authors in the Park event in the spring, she decided to purchase the building. “It’s like a win-win for Stittsville village and for myself, getting out of my house,� she told the Rotary Club, noting that she want to fix it up and keep it there in its longtime location so that it becomes something of a destination feature for the village. She loves its location adjacent to Village Square Park. “It just fits so well in the park,� she told the Rotary Club. This log barn was one of a series of industrial-use structures and outbuildings which developed along this narrow stretch of property between the railway track (now the Trans Canada Trail) and Abbott Street. Opposite the Stittsville railway station, the site was Stittsville’s first industrial park, as it were, with a flour mill and elevator owned by the Mann family as principal buildings. The Mann family also got into the brick business using this area of the village. The exact use of this building is not known. It may have been a storage building of some sort, perhaps associated with one of the business enterprises which sprung up in this area adjacent to the railway line, the Stittsville rail siding and the Stittsville railway station.

is while the interior would meet the various building code requirements to house a business such as sewer and water services. The log barn, which is completely open inside with a loft at the east end, is large enough for Ms. Bird to use as a photography studio and gallery. Indeed, she does most of her photographic work on location, so it would be mainly a home away from her home for her business. She hopes that all of planning, city of Ottawa permits and renovation work can be done by this fall. She says that perhaps someday artists at the annual Artists and Authors in the Park event at the adjacent Village Square Park sponsored by the Stittsville Village Association will be able to set up their booths around her building, with their art displayed on its walls. She does, though, want to get started on her reno-

From page 1 Right now the oldest photo she has of the building dates to 1946. While it is taken from the rare vantage point of looking westward, it shows only a corner of the building plus some of a lean-to addition which was on the west side of the building at that time. The supports for this lean-to are still evident on the building. Anyone with an old photo showing this building should consider visiting the Stittsville branch of the Ottawa Public Library this Saturday, Feb. 19 between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. That’s where the Goulbourn Township Historical Society is holding its Heritage Day celebration including characters in period costume from Stittsville’s past.

Valentines Special featuring cupcakes JOHN CURRY john.curry@metroland.com

The dictionary tells us that a cupcake is a small cake baked in a cup-shaped mould. OR, it is a term of endearment, as when a lover calls his partner “My little cupcake.” So, it should not be surprising that these two diverse meanings might find themselves together when cupcakes are featured in an event celebrating that most well-known time of endearment,

Valentines. This is just what happened on Sunday afternoon, Feb. 13 at Dandelions Consignment Boutique on Stittsville Main Street in downtown Stittsville as the Valentines Special in the community room there was a cupcake decorating session for youngsters. There was not only a variety of cupcakes (white or chocolate, for example) on hand to decorate with pink or white icing along with a couple of assortments of pink sprinkles but also there was cupcake expertise there as well. The expertise came in the person of Shakira Whitton of Stittsville, one of the co-owners and bakers of Little Cakes Cupcakes, a home-based business which supplies cupcakes for events ranging from birthday parties to weddings to corporate gatherings. She not only helped the participating youngsters decorate their cupcakes but she even brought along an assortment of her own Little Cakes products, great for sharing with the assembled parents. All proceeds from this Valentines cupcake decorating session are going to the Nelson House for Abused Women and Children. Cupcakes go back over two centuries, with the first mention of “a cake to be baked in a small cup” being mentioned in a 1796 cookbook. They have really become quite popular in recent years. Indeed, even the renowned Martha Stewart published a cook book in 2010 dedicated to cupcakes.

Call now for your initial consultation and take home sleep study

this Saturday, Feb. 19 at 7 p.m. There will be nine youthful models who will be modeling the 35 wedding dresses provided by members of the community for the event. They will not only be wearing the dresses but photos of the wedding of the dress’ original bride will be shown on a screen at the front of the church. There will also be stories told about the dresses and weddings and perhaps even the changing concept of love and romance over the years, garnered by the church’s young people in conversation with the original brides or with their relatives who provided the dresses. Some of the weddings actually took place right in Stittsville United Church itself and some of the brides are themselves now buried in the adjacent church graveyard. Besides the youth who will be modeling the dresses, there will be tuxedoed grooms, fathers of the bride and even a bagpiper. In keeping with the theme, which is re-

ally tied in with a celebration of Heritage Day, Rev. Ezra Healey, the first Methodist minister to serve the Stittsville area back in 1819, will be making an appearance at the event. This is all part of the Stittsville United Church’s Gen Connect project through which youth and older members of the congregation connect and share stories. The wedding dresses being used in the fashion show were dropped off at the church on a recent Monday evening, with the youth on hand to talk with the dress owners and hear the stories about the weddings. “It’s been a nice little trip down memory lane,” says Ruth Richardson who has been working with the youth on the project. Everyone in the community is most welcome to attend this bridal fashion show. There is no admission charge, although donations will be gratefully accepted at the door.

Thank you and good luck Chief Gervais

I would like to take this time to thank Sector Chief of District 8 (Stittsville) Terry Gervais for all he has done for the Stittsville community over the past 10 years. For those of you who may not be aware, Chief Gervais announced his resignation in Ottawa earlier last week and has accepted the position of Fire Chief in Napanee, Ontario as of February 28th, 2011. I have had the honour and privilege of working with Chief Gervais for many years. He has been a dedicated community leader and role model to his fellow firefighters. He will be sorely missed and to me, I can’t think of a more deserving individual who is capable of handling this new position. Chief Gervais has been a model citizen and friend to us all. We will miss him but we wish him and his family nothing but the best as they embark on this new journey. On behalf of the entire Stittsville community, I say thank you, congratulations and good luck, Chief. Shave for a Cure campaign I would like to take this opportunity and say a big thank you to everyone – from community members to Council Colleagues – who supported me during my Shave for a Cure campaign. On Friday February 11th at the Ottawa 67’s home game, I was one of many participants who volunteered to have their head shaved and raise money for the Canadian Childhood Cancer Foundation. This Shave for a Cure campaign is hosted by Smiling Over Sickness, a medical student run organization within the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Ottawa. This is the eighth year the event has been taking place and I was thrilled to be part of it. Any amount, big or small, makes a difference and I am so thankful and overwhelmed by the generosity through this entire process. Together, we are making children across our country smile brighter as we work together every day to research and help children with cancer any way we can. Together we can make a difference and together, we certainly have. Thank you. Test your mental strength Your brain deserves a good sweat, too. Trivia Night, organized by the Ottawa-Stittsville Rotary Club, will be held on Friday, February 25th at the Lions Club Hall on Stittsville Main Street. Doors will open at 6:30pm and the trivia will start at 7:30pm. At a cost of $160 for groups of 8, there are a limited number of tables, so act quickly. For tickets and more information, please contact Theresa Qadri at theresaq@rogers.com or at 613-620-6245. Your support is appreciated by the many volunteers who are working to make this event successful. Highway 417 construction update The Ministry of Transportation (MTO) has retained McCormick Rankin Corporation (MRC) to undertake the Detail Design for the expansion of Highway 417 from Eagleson Road westerly to Highway 7, in the City of Ottawa. To view details of the project, please visit my website at www.shadqadri.com. The information is listed under the Transportation Infrastructure tab after clicking on the Planning and Development button on the top.

The West Ottawa Ringette Association’s Belle A (Under 19) team is currently ranked second out of 21 teams in the province and is off to represent the Eastern Region at the upcoming provincial championships. The team is obviously skilled on the ice but an off-ice activity may be providing that little something extra that has helped the team excel this season. Every Tuesday evening

since mid-September, the Belle A players have been visiting Sculpt Conditioning in Stittsville for a dryland training program meant to increase their cardio fitness and their core strength. They are one of a half dozen West Ottawa ringette teams that have visited Sculpt Conditioning this season. Wesley Wood and Mariko Kulka of Sculpt Conditioning, in communication with the Belle A team coach Ray Wong and competitive team off-ice coordinator Barry Gor-

ham, developed a program to achieve the team’s fitness goals while also contributing to team building and conditioning to prevent injuries. Mariko Kulka, a former figure skater, was familiar with some of the drills that were necessary to help in skating but even she admits that she had to do some research on skating and team building exercises in preparing for the weekly program for the Belle A ringette team. See SCULPT, page 7

The process This study has followed the approved planning process for Group “B” projects under the Class Environmental Assessment for Provincial Transportation Facilities (2000), with the opportunity for public input throughout the study. The Transportation Environmental Study Report (TESR) documenting the Preliminary Design received environmental clearance in 2004. A Design and Construction Report (DCR) has been prepared to document the Detail Design process and is available now for a 30-day public review period at the following locations during regular business hours: City of Ottawa Client Service Centre located at the Ben Franklin Place, 101 Centrepointe Drive, Nepean from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm and the Ottawa Public Library Beaverbrook branch, located at 2500 Campeau Drive in Kanata from Mondays to Thursdays 10 am to 8:30 pm, Fridays from 1 pm to 6 pm, Saturdays from 10 am to 5pm and Sundays from 1pm to 5pm. Interested persons are encouraged to review this document and provide comments by March 12, 2011 to Manny Goetz, consultant with the McCormick Rankin Corporation at 613-736-7200 x 3225 or by e-mail at mgoetz@mrc.ca or with David Lindensmith, senior project engineer with the Ministry of Transportation Eastern Region at 613-5405130 or by e-mail at dave.lindensmith@ontario.ca. Family Day schedule changes The City of Ottawa would like to remind residents of the following schedule changes for Family Day, which occurs on February 21st. The City’s Client Service centres and Government Service Centres will be closed; however, 3-1-1 is still in operation. There will be no curbside green bin, garbage or recycling collection on Family Day. Family Day’s pick-up will take place on the Tuesday. In addition, the collection of garbage and recycling materials will be delayed by one day for the week of February 21st. OC Transpo will offer a revised weekday schedule with minor reductions. Call 613-560-1000 plus your four-digit bus stop number for schedule information or visit www. octranspo.com. Most recreation facilities will be maintaining regular operating hours on February 21st, and most instructional programs will run on their normal schedule for the day. Additional swimming and skating sessions will be offered at many sites. Please contact the facility of your choice for more information. All branches of the Ottawa Public Library are closed on Family Day. Please note that my Ward and City Hall offices will be closed on Family Day.

Belle A team off to provincials SPECIAL TO THE NEWS An overtime goal has sent the West Ottawa Ringette Association’s Belle A (Under 19) team to the provincial championships, representing the Eastern Ontario Region. The winning overtime goal occurred in the final game of the Eastern Ontario ringette championship tournament called “The prelims” which was held in Rockland over the weekend of Jan. 28. This tournament is held annually to determine which area team will represent the Eastern Ontario Region at the provincial championships which this year are taking place in Waterloo in early March. The West Ottawa Wild Belle A team ended up in first place after round robin play, facing off against teams from Nepean, Gloucester-Cumberland and Ottawa. This meant that the West Ottawa

Wild Belle A team would face Nepean, the second place team, in the championship game. It turned out to be an exciting game featuring end-to-end action that went into overtime, with West Ottawa scoring ten minutes into the extra period to become Eastern Ontario Region champs. The West Ottawa Wild Belle A team has had a strong season, with the team ending up in the championship game in all of the five tournaments that the team has entered. Indeed, the team is currently ranked second out of 21 teams in the province. The players and coaching/bench staff wish to thank the team’s sponsors for their support this season: A.M. Sharp Framing, Itex and Bell Canada. The West Ottawa Ringette Association draws its players from the Stittsville/ Goulbourn, West Carleton and Kanata areas.

as a team as they have been interacting and supporting each other in a different environment, namely that of a fitness studio rather than a rink. Mariko Kulka of Sculpt Conditioning agrees with this assessment, noting that in her view the players get to know each other better through their off-ice sessions. It gives them more of a team experience overall than just showing up at the rink for games and practices and then going home after that. Coach Wong says that the Belle A players have had great experiences with Mariko and Wesley at Sculpt Conditioning this season. Being involved with Mariko and Wesley goes back four seasons for coach Wong. His team at that time was doing some early season track and gym workouts to help with the players’ cardio and core strength. Once the snow came, an alternative was needed and coach Wong suggested spinning. Sessions were booked and in subsequent seasons, more competitive ringette teams turned to spinning and core work for cardio fitness and core strength improvement. In doing this, they came in contact with Mariko and Wesley who were instruc-

tors at Astral Fitness in Stittsville at the time. This season, when it came time to arrange dryland training for the competitive ringette teams, including the Belle A team coached by Mr. Wong, it

was decided to go with the new Sculpt Conditioning fitness, personal training and sports conditioning studio which opened this past September in the Main Street Pub plaza on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville. Sculpt

Conditioning is operated by Mariko and Wesley and since both of them had a history with the ringette teams in prior seasons, the decision was made to use Sculpt Conditioning this season.

From page 6 But now she and Wesley Wood are proud as punch at the accomplishments of the Belle A team this season – making it to the provincial championships as the Eastern Region representative and bring home medals from all five tournaments entered, including four silvers and one gold. Belle A coach Ray Wong explains that part of the rationale for the off-ice training at Sculpt Conditioning is that ice time is expensive and scarce. Doing dryland training at Sculpt Conditioning to increase the players’ fitness levels has meant that the team is able to use its precious practice ice team for ringette skill development and team tactics. Coach Wong feels that the off-ice training has definitely contributed to the team’s success this season. He knows that some of his players feel that their endurance and strength have improved, resulting in more consistent performance in tournaments where the team often ends up playing up to five games over a three day span. He also feels that the regular Tuesday evening sessions at Sculpt Conditioning have helped bring the players together more

EDITORIAL

The forgotten intersection The newly reconstructed and almost completed Hazeldean Road has several new traffic signals along its route to help regulate its ever-increasing vehicle flow. And while it’s great to see these new traffic signals coming to Stittsville, there is one intersection which is still glaringly in need of signalization. That’s the intersection of Stittsville Main Street and Wintergreen Drive/Mulkins Street, where Wintergreen Drive leads into the Wyldewood subdivision on the east side of the street while Mulkins Street leads into Alexander Grove and the Stittsville District Community Centre. This intersection has a long history related to signalization.

It was a hot topic for the former Goulbourn township council in the early 1990’s and indeed, former Wyldewood Homeowners Association president the late Andy Dunlop argued long and hard for the installation of traffic signals at the intersection. It was always talked about and came within an eyelash of becoming reality. But no signals ever happened at this intersection and now, 20 years later, there is much, much more traffic and still the intersection remains without signals. Just ask anyone trying to exit from Wintergreen Drive these days, especially trying to turn south on Stittsville Main Street. Or ask anyone coming out of Mulkins Street who is trying to turn north on Stittsville Main

Street. It’s almost a case of forget it unless it is in the dead of night, with no traffic on Stittsville Main Street. It seems to us that it is about time that traffic signals were installed at this intersection. Two decades of motoring heartache for those who find themselves stuck at this intersection, unable to get out into the ever-increasing and heavy traffic flow on Stittsville Main Street, is surely enough of a history to merit these traffic signals. And, as an added benefit, another traffic signal along Stittsville Main Street would help to break up the traffic flow even more, assisting motorists at other entry and exit points to more easily join or leave the Stittsville Main Street traffic flow.

A temporary (?) goodbye to SuperEx So there won’t be a SuperEx this year. The Central Canada Exhibition Association board made the decision and announced it last week. It has to do with the changes at Lansdowne Park and the unreadiness of the site the board owns out at Albion Road. There are a lot of people who hope that the announcement means what it says — that the Ex is having a temporary hiatus and will be back in 2012. And there are some people who are indifferent, because the Ex no longer means anything to them any more. Among the advantages cited for a move to new quarters away from the centre of the city is the added space that will allow the agricultural component of the Ex to be enhanced. Among the disadvantages is the distance for many city dwellers. While the Landsdowne Park site was controversial for many who lived nearby, the Ex profited from the amount of walk-by traffic.

CHARLES GORDON Reader comments on articles about the postponement are not always representative of public opinion, but it is worth noting the impression they generate that the Ex had become irrelevant to people’s lives, in the recreational as opposed to the agricultural sense. It’s hard to see how the board can overcome this. Many years ago, before the Ex became the SuperEx, exhibitions were hot. They showed people things they had not seen before; they were where people went to see the latest. Last week’s Citizen story about the SuperEx was accompanied by a photo of an automobile race, a bunch of old-time cars whipping past the grandstand. Except that they were not old-time cars then, and the idea of them racing was fairly new.

The grandstand show was where people went for music that they couldn’t see anywhere else, big-name acts that were only heard on the radio or on records. The grandstand show was a big deal. In another way, the midway was a big deal too. Sure, people complained about being ripped off by the games, but that was part of growing up, and the noise and excitement of the place was a kick for children and teenagers. It is an understatement to say that things have changed. The expansion of news media and the Internet means that we know what’s new before it even hits the street. We can watch cars race, if we care, on YouTube. Kids can play games on their computers that are as exciting, to them, as anything available on the midway. Nutrition scolds have frightened us off the midway food. And the grandstand show was made irrelevant by music videos on TV, even before YouTube arrived.

As a people we are a bit jaded. If we haven’t seen everything before, we think we have. The sense of wonder, the wow! factor that drew people to the Ex in years gone by has gone by. That, at least, is the pessimistic view, which has become the conventional one. It may not be completely right. Travel with some pre-schoolers out to the Experimental Farm and watch them check out the lambs and cows and rabbits and you will see that wonder does still exist in this world. Remember also that people still like to go out, particularly at summer’s end. Not everyone

is content to stay home playing video games and watching stuff on the Net. So there is hope for the Ex. Granted, it faces stiff competition. Other popular fairs have grown up in Valley towns. When the Ex was in its heyday, there was no ScotiaBank Place with its competing attractions. There was no National Arts Centre for much of the Ex’s early life. And, as noted, there were few of the electronic distractions in our homes. The Ex’s task is to figure out a way to make us say “wow!” again. It’s not easy in this world, but not impossible either.

The school’s second annual Dance 4 Diabetes was held, hosted by grade seven student Hannah Hempinstall with her classmates collecting fundraising pledges. The goal was to raise $5,000 at this year’s dance and this lofty goal was almost met, as the final total raised was $4771. Hannah Hempinstall, the student who first held a Dance 4 Diabetes at her previous school, Richmond Public School, in 2008 and who brought the idea to Goulbourn Middle School when she began attending the school last year, wishes to thank principal Chantal Racine and the Goulbourn Middle School teachers for allowing her to host this year’s Dance 4 Diabetes at the school. She is also thankful to her classmates for collecting pledges and participating in the event. Last year’s inaugural Dance 4 Diabetes at Goulbourn Middle School raised $861.70, all of it coming from dance ticket sales, canteen sales and an Ottawa Senators ticket raffle. There were no pledge forms used. This year’s Dance 4 Diabetes at Goulbourn Middle School not only had fundraising pledges but also had a host of prizes and donations provided by various businesses. These prizes and pledges included two tickets to a Michael Jackson Tribute Show from Centrepointe Theatre in Nepean; a $25 iTunes gift card from Déjà vu Dance Boutique of Stittsville; two Avon gift bags from Jeanette Mell of Munster; two John Deere hats from Green Tech AG & Turf of Richmond; a gift basket of hair products worth $248 from Hair Expectations of Richmond; cash donations from Bonnie Jensen, D.E. Kinkade Konstruction and Sony Kinkade Design, all of Richmond; an emergency car kit from Jill McLaurin of Richmond; beauty products from Jody Ryan of Richmond; a gift basket of art supplies from Patty Reid Smith of Richmond; and three $40 EB Games gift cards

from Steve Smith of Richmond. The generosity associated with this Dance 4 Diabetes at Goulbourn Middle School this year went beyond the pledges and these prizes and donations. It also extended to the provision of music for the dance as the DJ was provided by Jeff Goldberg of Sonic Events of Toronto. Hannah Hempinstall, who lives in Richmond, has been a prolific fundraiser for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation ever since 2008 when her best friend was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. She committed herself to being part of the solution by helping find a cure. She held a first Dance 4 Diabetes at Richmond Public School, her school at the time, in 2008 and it has now become an annual event at that school, with over $6,000 raised. When Hannah, who is 12, moved to Goulbourn Middle School for grade six, she took the idea of Dance 4 Diabetes with her and last year held the inaugural Dance 4 Diabetes there. This year’s Dance 4 Diabetes built on last year’s success. Altogether, donations to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation from the Dance 4 Diabetes at Richmond Public School and from Goulbourn Middle School as well as other fundraising undertaken by Hannah now totals $14,035.07 since November 2008. This total will undoubtedly continue to rise with future events. Hannah Hempinstall was recently selected as one of Ontario’s Junior Citizens of the Year, an honour given to only 12 young people aged 6 through 17 in the province each year. Her selection was based not only on her Dance 4 Diabetes and other fundraising activities for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation but also various random acts of kindness towards others, whether they are suffering from an illness or need help in a dance class or being on student council or just being a good friend.

Jazz was in the air at South Carleton High School on Friday, Feb. 11. Jazz in the air means toes tapping on the floor, fingers beating on the table and smiles broadcast from faces. And this is just what prevailed at this first-ever jazz café held in the cafetorium at the school. And what an experience for the 150 or so in attendance, sitting at tables, both round and square, which were set up to provide a café-like experience, complete with vinyl green or red tablecloths, candle centerpieces and munchie trays for snacking. Concert band students wearing their familiar garnet shirts made the rounds of the tables, pushing wheeled carts filled with liquid refreshments such as water, soft drinks and coffee. But what was the highlight of this jazz café was not the café-like setting which included jazz musician silhouettes on the walls but was what everyone was there for – the jazz music. A dictionary description of jazz calls it a type of music

characterized by improvisation, phrasing with accents on the weak beat and a regular rhythm. And this is what was delivered by the three performance groups at this jazz café – the South Carleton High School (SCHS) junior jazz band, the SCHS senior jazz band and the Aardvark jazz band, a group that performs around the Ottawa area. Just why the group adopted a name associated with a nocturnal badger-sized mammal with large ears, a long snout and an even longer tongue is unknown but it does not matter – they sure can entertain. The Aardvark group appeared at the jazz café, performing two sets lasting for a combined total of over an hour, thanks to SCHS music teacher Roberta Archibald who plays the trumpet. About a year ago, Aardvark needed a substitute trumpet player for an engagement and Roberta stepped in to fill the breech, having lots of fun as a result. This began their relationship and resulted in their participation in the jazz café, a fundraising venture for the SCHS music program. “They’re a great bunch of musicians which you are going

to hear tonight,” Ms. Archibald told the audience when introducing them before their first set. And in Aardvark’s second set, she even joined the group’s trumpet line as the band played the Bobby Darin jazzy hit “Beyond the Seas.” This jazz café evening began with the SCHS junior jazz band, comprised of grade 9 and 10 students, taking to the stage under the direction of Roberta Archibald. They were introduced by student MC Drew York-Slader who deserves the “crystal ball” award for his opening prediction which proved to be right on: “You’re in for a real treat, I guarantee you,” he announced right up front and he wasn’t wrong. The junior jazz band got the evening off on the right foot with their 25 minute set, complete with featured solos which were followed by audience applause, a seal of approval for their performance of this traditional presentation method for jazz music. With balloons fluttering on the podium, bright lighting along the foot of the stage, SCHS banners hanging from the music stands and publicity banners on

the rear curtain, the junior jazz band had things hopping with their renditions of several jazz numbers – some fast, some slow – jazz at its best. The SCHS senior jazz band, comprised mainly of grade 11 and 12 students and under the direction of Sarah Woods, followed the junior jazz band, with another 25 minute long set that featured a variety of jazz music, highlighted by solos featuring instruments including the piano, trombone and saxophone. MC Drew York-Slader inserted a number of band-oriented jokes in his remarks, causing chuckles to pervade in the moments between the jazz offerings. “How many bass players do you need to change a light bulb?” and “What is the trumpet player’s handshake?” were among his amusing efforts. But he no doubt spoke on behalf of all of the student musicians at the event when he admired the number who had turned out for this first ever jazz café at SCHS, all sharing a mutual feeling for jazz music. He also said that the students felt privileged to have jazz music education in the school. Next up was the Aardvark

band who began with the folk rock epic “Bad, Bad Leroy Brown” and things only got even better from then. Indeed, in introducing the band, Ms. Archibald called Aardvark’s music very entertaining and very danceable. And this proved very true, not only with regards to the entertaining component but also offering danceable music as the dance floor, which previously had been visited only by a handful of students and youth, began to fill up with some of the adult audience. Even SCHS principal Trudy Garland ended up on the dance floor for an energetic fling with a young partner. In Aardvark’s second set, which began at 9:15 p.m. and lasted for half an hour, started off with a vocal rendition of the Michael Buble song ”The More I See You”, followed up by another Buble offering, “Spiderman”. On and on it went, finishing up with a Duke Ellington classic. What better way to end an evening of jazz music than with one of the tunes closely associated with the person most believe was the most influential force in jazz music over much of the 20th century.

Ted Brown is Richmond’s Volunteer of the Year JOHN CURRY

john.curry@metroland.com

Ted Brown has a long record of community involvement in Richmond. His years as a community volunteer have been formally recognized this year with his name going on the Deboer award. This award, named after initial recipient Jill Deboer, is presented annually by the Richmond Village Association to honour Richmond village’s Volunteer of the Year. It goes to a Richmond area volunteer who has worked for the betterment of the community of Richmond in an unpaid capacity over the space of at least a year. And who better than Ted Brown. He is a longtime member of the Kiwanis Club of Goulbourn. Through his Kiwanis involvement, he founded and headed KMed, a now defunct organization which provided used medical equipment from Canada to Third World countries. As a member of the Kiwanis Club of Goulbourn, he was instrumental in establishing the used book store which it operated for a number of years at the Richmond Plaza. He was involved with the former Goulbourn Corn Festival which was held at the Richmond fairgrounds in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, including a stint serving as its treasurer. Mr. Brown has just recently stepped down as a director of the Richmond Village Association (RVA) after being involved with the organization since it was formed in 1997, including serving as its president. The best known legacy of his involvement with the RVA’s Richmond Heritage Gallery, its project which has seen six murals depicting various events in the history of Richmond erected on the

exterior of the Richmond Memorial Community Centre arena. He inaugurated the project and got much of the funding required for its launch and ongoing development. He has been the driving force behind the creation and erection of all six of the murals which are now in place on the arena. And while he has stepped down as an RVA director, he has volunteered to continue to be involved with the mural project. In making the presentation of the Deboer Award to Mr. Brown at the meeting of the Kiwanis Club of Goulbourn on Thursday, Feb. 10, RVA immediate past president Bruce Webster noted Mr. Brown’s long contribution to the Kiwanis Club, the RVA and the community in general, saying that the award was being presented “in recognition of Ted’s long serving years in this organization (the Kiwanis Club) and the RVA and service to the community.” He also noted that Mr. Brown willingly chauffers other people to appointments and events. “He takes care of everybody,” Mr. Webster said about Mr. Brown. “That’s a nice surprise,” Mr. Brown commented on receiving the award. Previous recipients of the Deboer Award have been Jill Deboer herself for her working in the community and with the RVA including the Winter Wonderland banner contest; the late Tom Cowick for his work with Silver Stick Hockey; Denise Crawford for her involvement with the Richmond Munster Minor Hockey Association; and Judy Wagdin for her community work and her work with the RVA including spearheading its beautification project of hanging flower baskets along the streets in the summer.

HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE CASH IN AT THE OTTAWA ROADSHOW YESTERDAY! By Jason Delong

Yesterday at the Travelodge West, hundreds lined up to cash in antiques, collectibles, gold and jewejry at the Treasure Hunters Roadshow. The free event is in Ottawa all week, buying gold, silver, antiques and collectibles. One visitor I spoke with yesterday said, “It’s unbelievable, I brought in some old coins that had been in a little cigar box for years and some old herringbone necklaces—in less than fifteen minutes I left with a check for $700. That stuff has been in my jewelry box and dresser for at least 20 years.” Another gentleman brought in an old Fender guitar his fathar had bought years ago. The man said, “Dad had less than fifty bucks in that guitar.” The Roadshow expert that assisted him made a few phone calls and a veterinarian in Seattle, Washington bought the guitar for

“IT’S UNBELIEVABLE, I BROUGHT IN SOME OLD COINS THAT HAD BEEN IN A LITTLE CIGAR BOX FOR YEARS AND SOME OLD HERRINGBONE NECKLACES—IN LESS THAN FIFTEEN MINUTES I LEFT WITH A CHECK FOR $700.” $5,700.00. The seller continued, “I got another $150.00 for a broken necklace and an old class ring. It’s not ever y day that someone comes to town bringing six thousand dollars with your name on it.”

Gold and silver pour into yesterday’s Roadshow due to highest prices in 40 years. markets are soaring,” says Archie Davis, a Roadshow representative. “Broken jewelry and gold and silver coins add up very quickly. I just finished working with a gentleman that had an old class ring, two bracelets and a handful of silver dollars. His check was for over $650.00. I would say that there were well over 100 people in here yesterday that sold their scrap gold.” The Roadshow continues today starting at 9am. The event is free and no appointment is needed. If you go to the Roadshow, you can cash-in your items for competitive prices. Roadshow representatives will be available to assess and purchase your items at the Travelodge West, this week through Saturday, in Ottawa.

Jeff Parsons, President of the Treasure Hunters Roadshow commented, “Lots of people have items that they know are valuable but just don’t know where to sell them. Old toys, trains, swords,guitars, pocket watches or just about anything old is valuable to collectors. These collectors are willing to pay big money for those items that they are looking for.” This week’s Roadshow is the best place to get connected with those collectors. The process is free and anyone can bring items down to the event. If the Roadshow experts find items that their collectors are interested in, offers will be made to purchase them. About 80% of the guests that attend the show end up selling one or more items at the event. Antiques and collectibles are not the only items the Roadshow is buying. “Gold and silver

Sounds of Cub ceremonies ring through Richmond library JOHN CURRY

448086-07-11

412571

john.curry@metroland.com

Usually silence is the name of the game in public libraries. But the Richmond branch of the Ottawa Public Library reverberated with the sounds of a Cub Pack opening and closing ceremonies on Wednesday, Feb. 9 when members of the 1st Richmond Cubs visited to learn something about the library and books in general, all to help earn a Reader Badge and perhaps even a Canadian Heritage Badge. So, just after 7 p.m., the 11 Cubs and their three leaders, with the permission of Richmond library branch staff, began their visit to the library with the Cubs’ traditional opening ceremony, as they do at all of their meetings. “Akela, we’ll do our best,” the Cubs shouted out in the ceremony. “We’ll dib, dib, dib. We’ll dob, dob, dob,” the Cubs yelled, as they squatted in their traditional circular opening ceremony in the lounge area at the library. There was no silence here, just as there would not be at the end of their visit when their closing ceremony involved a rousing cheer for Ottawa Public Library staff member Susan McDonald who had told them all about the library during their hour-plus long visit and Richmond library supervisor Karen Craig who handled duties behind the

branch’s circulation desk during the visit, allowing Ms. McDonald to give her full attention to the Cubs and their visit. And what a visit it was. The Cubs told about the various services provided by the library including not only books but DVD’s, movies, magazines, Xbox games, free museum passes, books on CD, board books for younger readers… the list went on and on. There are even so-called graphic novels, today’s modern comics. “It sounds so much better than comics,” library staffer Susan McDonald told the Cubs about the current name, graphic novels. The Cubs learned about the online database of articles and research which can be accessed through the library. This is different than using an internet source such as Wikipedia. Ms. McDonald explained to the Cubs that there are two kinds of books basically, fiction and non-fiction. She also explained about the different parts of a book, something that the Cubs needed to know for their Reader Badge – including the cover, spine, title page, index and chapters. Ms. McDonald also explained the library’s Dewey Decimal System by which books can be located in the library. She explained that the Dewey number is like a street address for a house on a particular street.

The Cubs were even involved in a search of the library’s non-fiction section, having been given a Dewey Decimal System number to seek out a book and an associated item placed on the shelf beside the book. This transformed the Cubs, as they returned from their search of the shelves not as Cubs but as a pirate, a clown, Darth Vader, a sombrero-ed Mexican, a soccer player and a magician, among other roles. Books, indeed, can transport a person into other worlds, as the Cubs discovered. The Cubs were advised to always mark the due date for books from the library on a calendar so that they do not become overdue with a fine levied. The Cubs were also reminded to use a bookmark and not bend or fold pages as a placeholder when reading a book. They were also reminded not to try to repair a book if a page is ripped while it is out on loan. It is best to tell the library staff about the damage and the library can use its expertise to properly repair it. While a number of the Cubs already had a library card, some did not and it was explained that while a library card is free, a parent would have to be involved in the registration process for one, providing identification.

Euchre at Stittsville Legion SPECIAL TO THE NEWS Marion Gullock had the ladies’ high score at the

euchre at the Stittsville Legion Hall on Tuesday, Feb. 8, with Rachel Stevens placing second.

A step into the Stittsville branch of the Ottawa Public Library on Saturday afternoon, Feb. 19 will be a step into Stittsville’s past. That’s because the Goulbourn Township Historical Society will be marking Heritage Day with the appearance of a number of costumed characters from both the past and present. Who knows who will be there? Jackson Stitt himself perhaps? There’s a rumour that hotel owner George Green from the early 1900’s will be there.

FUTURE SHOP CORRECTION NOTICE

The Sacred Heart Huskies experienced the two extremes in games in the last week of the regular high school hockey season for them. On Monday, Feb. 7, the Huskies shut out All Saints High School 1-0 – a close game. But on Thursday, Feb. 10, the Huskies fell 8-1 to the powerful Hillcrest High School squad – not a close game. Indeed, the Hillcrest squad is a scoring machine, averaging almost seven goals a game in the ten game regular season. The Huskies, on the other hand, averaged almost three goals a game in their ten game regular season. Hillcrest has finished in first place in the nine team high school boys’ hockey AAA/AAAA league with a record of nine wins and only one loss. The Sacred Heart Huskies have finished their ten game regular season in second place, with a record of seven wins, two losses and a tie. In high school boys’ hockey league tier 2 action, the South Carleton High School Storm are wrapping up a season that has seen the squad end up in last place in the nine team league. On Monday, Feb. 7, the Storm garnered their second tie of the season, a 6-6 draw against Ecole Franco Ouets. The Storm’s only other tie of the season, against St. Patrick High School, also ended in a 6-6 draw. South Carleton, after nine games of the ten game regular schedule, has one win, six losses and the two ties.

In the high school senior boys basketball tier 2 league, the South Carleton High School Storm finished in the middle of the pack in the 11-team West division with a record of six wins and four losses. The Storm had lost two straight games going into their final regular season game on Monday, Feb. 7 against A.Y. Jackson High School. The Storm got back on the winning track in this game, posting a 68-40 victory. The Storm scored 574 points in their ten game regular season while allowing 555 points to the opposition.

scored 664 points in their ten regular season games while the Bengals notched 580 points in their ten games. The Huskies were also a little better on defense, allowing only 402 points in ten games while the Bengals allowed 424 points in ten games. The Huskies run to the league championship will also have to deal with two strong teams in the East Division of the league. St. Patrick’s High School and Hillcrest High School both posted strong regular season results, with both scoring over 600 points, putting them in the Huskies’ class offensively.

the operation of the electronic scoreboard/clock in the second quarter. After a delay and a short resumption using the scoreboard, the glitch continued. That’s when the scoreboard was abandoned and the scorers went with an old fashioned flip chart scoreboard, posting the score manually as the game continued. The Huskies finished the regular season with nine wins and only one loss. This is the same record as the Sir Robert Borden High School Bengals. In comparing these two powerhouse teams of the West Division of the league, the Huskies

have been much better for the Huskies. Indeed, except for a two point loss to the Sir Robert Borden High School Bengals, the Huskies won everything in sight. The Huskies’ ninth win of the season came on Wednesday, Feb. 9 at the Huskydome in Stittsville when they downed the visiting Nepean High School squad 68-35. The Huskies led 27-12 at the end of the first quarter and 4016 at half time. The only glitch in the game happened not on the court but high on the Huskydome wall where problems arose with

A four storey story JOHN CURRY

john.curry@metroland.com

It’s an old story but like other recent sagas, it involves a number of storeys. Just like the proposed five storey building on the east side of Stittsville Main Street near Abbott Street or the multi-storey building at the corner of Sweetnam Drive and Harry Douglas Drive, it is a case of tall developments in small spaces, ruffling the feathers of community residents. And “it” is a proposed four storey, 64 unit condominium building facing on Wildpine Court in Stittsville. And this time it is not so much the proposed height, although residents of townhomes across the street from the site may have something to say about this at a public meeting about the proposal this week, as it is about the parking being provided for the project. The Stittsville Village Association (SVA) executive, at its meeting on Thursday, Feb. 10, heard from director David Jenkins about an insufficient number of parking spaces being provided for the development, arising from what Mr. Jenkins,

who handles planning issues for the SVA, believes is a misunderstanding of the provisions of the zoning bylaw covering traditional main street zones like this one. Although the site is primarily along Wildpine Court, it does have a small frontage on Stittsville Main Street at the Wildpine Court intersection. It is this main street frontage which resulted in its zoning that allows for such a project. A total of 68 parking spaces are being proposed for the project. “He’s well shy of the required number of parking spaces,” Mr. Jenkins says of the developer, saying that as many as 89 parking spaces should be provided. However, the Stittsville Main Street zoning which applies to the site does not require any parking for units of 150 square metres or less in size. Mr. Jenkins argues that this provision was included in the Stittsville Main Street zone to allow the development of smallscale businesses along the street. He claims that the provision was not meant to apply to residential projects. Mr. Jenkins also notes that Wildpine Court is a small cul-

de-sac street with no sidewalks. In addition, there is no parking along Stittsville Main Street in this area. “It’s really an end run around the zoning bylaw,” he says of the proposal, saying that the city should insist that the project have the number of parking spaces required for such a building as would be required in a typical residential zone or at least a number somewhere close to what is normally required. A proposal for a 24-unit building on this site was made back in 2004 and drew opposition from Wildpine Court residents. This leads Mr. Jenkins to think that the residents may not like the current proposal as well. “It will be interesting to hear what the local residents have to say,” he says about this week’s public meeting on the matter. The matter is up for public discussion because a site plan for the project has been filed with the city. The public meeting is for the discussion of this proposed site plan. The zoning on the site is not on the agenda of the public meeting because the zoning is already in place, permitting such a development.

Hockey dads have words SPECIAL TO THE NEWS A couple of hockey dads should have received major penalties for their off-ice behaviour at the Richmond Memorial Community Centre arena on a recent Saturday. Indeed, the Ottawa Police Service had to be called to the arena after the two hockey dads got into a verbal sparring match in the stands. Staff members at the arena had become concerned that the verbal altercation would escalate into a fist fight. According to witnesses, the argument began with one father telling the other that he should watch his vulgar and inappropriate language in front of chil-

dren. What then began as fits of rage directed at the referees on the ice quickly evolved into a heated exchange of words and motions by the two dads. One father even waved his fist in the air and invited the other to step outside. As tempers cooled down and reality set in, the Ottawa Police Service officers reminded the hockey dads that the arena is a public place and that the children’s hockey game is just that – a game. Both parents were advised that a police report was being submitted for future reference and that they would be expected to behaviour more appropriately at future games.

Lone hands at euchre party SPECIAL TO THE NEWS Dot Gifford and Don Holmes had the most lone hands at the four-hand euchre party hosted by the Richmond Agricultural Society at the Richmond Curling Club lounge in Richmond on Monday, Feb. 7. It was an especially good night for Dot Gifford as she was also one of the winners of the

“Share the Wealth” prizes. The other “Share the Wealth” winners were Jack Hastie and Bob McMullen. As for the high score winners for the evening, they were Shirley Beardsall, Joyce Cook, Edna McKay, John Casey, Bob McMullen and Clare Porter. The Agricultural Society is holding euchre parties every Monday at 7:30 p.m. in the Richmond Curling Club lounge.

SPECIAL TO THE NEWS A picnic in the woods featuring hot chocolate with marshmallows and cookies. What a great way to finish a winter outing to view birds and look for deer tracks! The youngsters of the Stittsville Cooperative Nursery School are a lucky bunch. It all happened recently when the youngsters travelled to the Beaver Trail on Moodie Drive in Nepean for a winter’s outing to follow up on what they had been learning about winter birds and, more specifically, chickadees. Before the outing, the youngsters made “binoculars” out of toilet paper tubes to help them better spot the birds in the woods. And, boy, did they see them! There were tons of chickadees and what a thrill to have them land on hands and even hats to feed. The youngsters had learned to open their hands and hold them high and still to attract the birds – and it worked! Besides the chickadees, the youngsters saw several noisy woodpeckers. Since the Beaver Trail is where the Wild Bird Care Centre is, the Nursery School youngsters were able to peer into the windows and view all kinds of birds such as blue jays and pigeons who were being treated for various injuries. The youngsters saw lots of tracks in the fresh snow, wondering if they were made by squirrels or perhaps bunnies. The youngsters were on the lookout for deer tracks, since they had talked about

them in class, but none were spotted. The trip ended with a picnic in the woods, a fabulous end to a perfect winter outing.

How does WagJag work?



Consumers spread the word through email, Facebook, Twitter and by word of mouth to encourage others to buy into the deal... or they may not get it.

Why you should consider marketing through WagJag. RISK FREE WagJag offers activate only if minimum met; if it is not met you still get the free advertising plus a $100 advertising credit.



Once the deal is on businesses get an influx of new customers in a risk-free, cost-free alternative to conventional advertising

GET PAID QUICKLY We pay you quickly once the deal is complete even though you provide the goods or services later. You can choose between an agreed upon commission or 1.5x the commission value in advertising credits. A great way to extend the benefits of WagJagging!

NO OUT OF POCKET EXPENSES We only get paid for success. We charge commission on the incremental revenue we generate for you.

MARKET THROUGH SOCIAL NETWORKS Users are encouraged to share and discuss your business online; through our website and social media networks (Facebook,Twitter etc.) WagJag empowers users to recruit their friends to your business – “word of mouth” made easy!

GUARANTEED VOLUME & REVENUE By setting a minimum you are guaranteed a certain amount of volume and corresponding revenue.

MEASURABLE RESULTS You will know exactly how many new customers you get, who they are and when they return.

NEW CUSTOMERS WagJag brings in new customers that you can up-sell and turn into repeat customers.

FEATURED PROMINENTLY & EXCLUSIVELY Your business is featured by itself on our homepage for the duration of the offer – you get the entire page! We design an attractive feature and write a fun, catchy editorial that is optimized for search engines.
