Farmers’ market is back! JOHN CURRY john.curry@metroland.com

ART IN PARK Richmond artists like Les Bartley are showing work at art show at Memorial Park 28-29

Stittsville’s farmers’ market is starting up this week for another season. The farmers’ market, which sets up in the Bradley’s Insurance parking lot on the east side of Stittsville Main Street adjacent to Frederick Banting Alternate School (the former Stittsville Public School), will be opening up for the season this Thursday, June 16 from 3:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. The farmers’ market will then continue on Thursdays at this same time and place for the remainder of the growing season. Four vendors have already committed for this season, with items on sale to be bread, vegetables, chickens, eggs and meat. The variety of offerings will be increasing as the season goes along. And, what is most appealing, virtually all of the items being sold are organic. See FARMERS’, page 2

Holy Spirit principal retiring JOHN CURRY

473607

john.curry@metroland.com

It was like being in the middle of a flower bed. The walls of the gymnasium at Holy Spirit Catholic School in Stittsville were plastered with flower blooms of different colours – red, purple, yellow, orange, etc. – all artistically drawn and featuring the photograph of a student in its centre. This was the colourful setting for a retirement celebration for Holy Spirit principal Margaret Skinner on Thursday, June 9. And a message printed out along the top of the gym’s stage area said it all: “We blossomed under your care” - a message reinforced by Holy Spirit teacher Philip Walsh in his comments at the event. “You have been a guiding light for so many people,” he said about Mrs. Skinner in his remarks at the event, speaking on behalf of the school staff. He said that Mrs. Skinner was a role model as an administrator as well as being a friend to the staff, calling her a master teacher who has guided her staff in implementing current teaching strategies. He praised her for implementing many new traditions and programs during her years at Holy Spirit, including science challenges, environmental initiatives and anti-bullying programs. Mr. Walsh further praised Mrs. Skinner for instilling in students the drive to strive for their best. Mrs. Skinner is retiring at the end of June after a 34 year career in education including being principal at Holy Spirit since 2007. Her career saw her teach in Long Sault, British Columbia and Ottawa, beginning in 1972 in Long Sault. She spent a number of years spanning two stints at St. Leonard’s Catholic School in Manotick, eventually becoming viceprincipal in 2002. In 2004, she became principal at McMaster Catholic School before moving to Holy Spirit in 2007. She has been a leader in the School Board’s initiative for eco-friendly schools. Ottawa Catholic School Board superintendent Greg Mullen, speaking at the retirement gathering, paid tribute to Mrs. Skinner’s career in education, noting her strong support of Catholic education over the years. Micheline Harvey, a long friend and principal of St. Emily Catholic School in

Barrhaven, in her comments at the gathering, reiterated Mrs. Skinner’s strong commitment to Catholic education. “She always puts students first in everything she does,” Ms. Harvey said about her fellow educator. The retirement celebration included lots of laughter and lots of memories. A group of fellow principals recited a witty poem while Michelle Corbett, principal of St. Patrick’s School in Barrhaven, presented her with an award for her outstanding contributions in teaching, leadership and environmental initiatives. The Holy Spirit staff sang a song in her honour, following which there was a slide show that featured photos involving Mrs. Skinner, right from her earliest childhood years up through her life, both professionally and personally, with her family. Mrs. Skinner was presented with a gift certificate for Best Buy to purchase whatever she wished. In her remarks at the event, Mrs. Skinner thanked those with whom she had worked over the years, including the office administrators, library technicians, custodians and teaching colleagues. “The kids are why we are all here,” she told the gathering of close to 100, mainly teachers and former teachers. A standing ovation and cheers followed her remarks, after which she formally cut a retirement cake as the informal socializing continued.

Firefighters’ pole dancing adds excitement JOHN CURRY john.curry@metroland.com

event. This firefighter pole dancing followed a demonstration of this latest dance and fitness craze by 3SIXTY Dance and Fitness owner Corinne Brodthagen and three of her instructors – Sheena Bolton, Caroline Dolan and Tina Stone. Pole dancing combines fitness and fun and can accommodate people at every level, from beginner on up. There was a buzz in the arena as the girls went through their moves on the pole – doing upside down splits, hanging upside down along the pole, spinning around the pole. But the pole dancing was not the only entertainment provided by the firefighters. Firefighter Gary Rockburn, who last year sang at Girls’ Night Out, was back up on stage again this year, this time along with performing MC Wayne Rostad and a brave female volunteer, Linda Taylor. The three performed a song involving an Indian boy who was calling out to an Indian maiden who responded in kind. This led to some weird howling on the stage but Gary and Linda were good sports about it all and everyone enjoyed it. Firefighters also helped out as spotters in the audience for the live auction which was a major part of the evening’s fundraising. Serving as the auctioneer, Wayne Rostad ended up selling 17 items and bringing in a little more than $15,000.

Being escorted to your seat by a uniformed, good looking volunteer firefighter. Exciting. Witnessing a demonstration of pole dancing, the latest fitness craze. Awesome. Seeing a couple of muscular firefighters bare their arms and twirl around the dance pole. Priceless. It was this impromptu performance by volunteer firefighters Alex Durmann of Fitzroy Harbour and Pete Laplante of Richmond that produced virtual bedlam among the 700 ladies at the fifth annual Girls’ Night Out on the ice slab at the Richmond arena on Friday evening, June 10. Shouting, screams, applause all filled the arena as the two firefighters rolled up their sleeves, revealing their bulging muscles, and then tried their luck at spinning around the pole dancers’ pole that was set up on the stage. We all know traditionally that firefighters slide down a fire pole in response to a fire alarm. Never, though, we would think, has the sliding motion of two firefighters provoked such a frenzy. A couple of ladies even rushed the stage, offering to slide a five dollar bill down the front of the firefighters’ pants, something that you might see happen at a performance of a Chippendales male stripper troupe. Oh, well – a couple more dollars in fundraising for Friends of Hospice Ottawa which organizes this Girls’ Night Out

Of course, two leather home theatre group seats, valued at up to $6,000 each, brought in $4,000 apiece, accounting for more than half of the total realized in the auction. But there was lots more sold in the hour-long auction, including a handmade quilt ($350), a two seater kayak ($500), two Ottawa Senators tickets ($450), a wine lovers evening for eight ($800) a Roberto Luongo signed Vancouver Canuck jersey ($700), a corner grandfather’s clock ($700) and a slot machine ($825). Richmond businesswomen Sonya Kinkade, an interior designer, and Shauna Kirkham, who operates a hair salon and spa, gave away a lot of gift bags but also gave away two special prizes, a spa certificate and tickets to a Backstreet Boys concert. Sonya and Shauna had six good looking white t-shirted guys up on stage and the participating ladies had to, shall we say, frisk the guys to find the prizes. Yes, indeed, it was a girls’ night out. Wayne Rostad, who not only entertained and ran the auction and served

as MC but also was down on the ice slab before and during the dinner which was served again this year by A.J. Catering, chatting with ladies, followed the pole dancing demonstration with a half hour performance, ranging from a singalong of vintage songs like “White Sports Coat” and “O Lonesome Me” to an imitation of Louis Armstrong’s “I Found My Thrill on Blueberry Hill.” It was then time to distribute a few more prizes such as a Via Rail trip for two to Niagara Falls, followed by words of thanks to all concerned from Ruth Cameron, director of fundraising for Friends of Hospice Ottawa. Many left assisted by a firefighter or two carrying an item purchased in the silent auction which went on during the event, ending when the live auction wound up. Items in this silent auction ranged from a Coke jute box to a signed Guy Lafleur coloured picture to numerous paintings including an A.J. Casson print to a giant round wall clock to a pink knit baby blanket, shawl and hat to a watch set to gift cards to purses to furniture including a bedroom set.

EDITORIAL

O Canada, we stand on guard! Soon, it will be six months away from Christmas and six months to go to Christmas. But more important than this upcoming June 25th date is that all important and significant date that is coming up, namely Friday, July 1st, Canada Day. Here we are, another year closer to our country’s 150th anniversary in 2017 – boy, what a celebration that year is probably going to see. It will be Centennial Year all over again but probably even bigger and better, if that is possible. We would hope that soon the federal government will announce funding plans for any 150th anniversary celebrations that local communities will undertake at that time. But, right now, let’s get back to this year. Canada Day will again be celebrated in Stittsville

thanks to the Stittsville Village Association which is organizing the activities. While the area used in recent years at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex is unavailable this year due to construction of the second ice pad there, the scene is shifting ever so slightly to the adjacent Sacred Heart High School parking lot and grounds where this year’s activities will take place. Once again, there are going to be games and activities for the youngsters, lots of entertainment including a performance by the Stittsville Concert Band and, of course, the gala fireworks to cap off the day. Some, we realize, may head downtown to Parliament Hill for the Canada Day celebrations there, particularly since Kate

and William, our newlywed royals, are going to be there and it’s a chance to see them. Some may also head over to Kanata for the Canada Day celebrations there. But that still leaves lots of people who will be remaining at home here in Stittsville and will have the opportunity to take in these Canada Day celebrations right here. It is always a great occasion – a chance not only to celebrate our country’s birthday but also to enjoy our friends and neighbours in our own community. It is a chance to be and feel part of Stittsville as well as part of Canada. Make sure that if possible, you attend Stittsville’s Canada Day celebrations this year. It’s a great way to mark Canada’s birthday.

COLUMN

Getting around the politics of getting around Election season and construction season merge once again with the announcement that the province will spend a ton of money to make things easier on the Queensway. Who knows? It might work. Mostly it hasn’t. The creation of more lanes leads to the creation of more cars and a quick return to the congestion that began it all. It can only be a pipe dream in this age when people are driven by cars, but wouldn’t it be nice if that kind of money — $200 million this time — could be spent on light rail and buses. These thoughts are occasioned by a week in Toronto, a vastly different city but with some conditions that should be familiar to us. Spending some time there, mostly on foot, gives you a useful perspective on getting around in the city. First, any city is better if you don’t have to drive in it. Toronto’s network of subways, buses and streetcars takes the strain

CHARLES GORDON out of getting around the city. If you can walk a few blocks, public transit will get you at least close to where you want to go. You save the big parking fees and the mental anguish that go with driving a car in that city. We don’t have public transit like that. Ours is not bad for getting from a suburb into downtown. But you wouldn’t want to spend a day trying to hit all the Ottawa high spots — the National Gallery, Carleton, U of O, Rockcliffe, the Newport and the Prescott — by bus. Mind you, not all of Toronto is that well served either. If you live within reach of the subway, you’re fine, but many don’t. It has been observed, rather ominously, that the people most likely to vote for Rob Ford, the ultra-conservative winner in

Toronto’s 2010 mayoralty race, were those who lived in areas with the worst public transit. In Ottawa, an ultra-conservative could pick up quite a few votes, using that criterion. But transit isn’t taken that seriously here, especially politically. If transit was uppermost in people’s minds, a city politician who failed on transit issues would be out of work quickly. Transit matters less here, and the reason for that is that it is still possible to drive. Sure, you can run into a little congestion, a five-minute delay here, a 10-minute delay there, but most downtown traffic problems could be solved easily by opening up a big trap door under the tour buses on Wellington Street. Meanwhile, people still think it is easier to drive. In Toronto, some people think that. You can see them, not moving on the Gardiner, not moving on the Don Valley Parkway, trying to circle the block for the fifth time to find a parking

space, stuck in the left-turn lane on King or Queen. Unfortunately, or fortunately, depending on how you look at it, some of that grief is headed our way. Notice how many of the downtown parking lots you used to frequent aren’t there any more? It happens here too: more condos, more people, fewer parking lots. The bad thing is that it is harder to drive a car; the good thing is that fewer people will try. All of which poses a challenge to the public transit people.

Good public transit, which most of Toronto has, is not only about getting to work and back. It is also about getting to the store and back, getting to the hockey game and back, getting from the museum to the shopping centre and over to the supermarket before heading home. It would be worth a lot more than $200 million to have that here.

Books being gathered for new school’s library SPECIAL TO THE NEWS

Calling all gently used children’s books. You will be appreciated and are needed for the shelves in the library of the new public elementary school that is being built on Hartsmere Drive in Stittsville and will be opening this coming September. Already the new school’s library is getting several hundred books which were selected and boxed following the recent annual book fair at A. Lorne Cassidy Elementary School in Stittsville. These unsold books were donated to the library of the new school. A team of volunteers from the Interim Parent Council of the new school spent the afternoon following the book fair culling through the remaining books, selected ones that would be appropriate for the library of the new school. These books are now stored, awaiting the opening of the school and its library. However, now a call is going out for anyone who is interested in donating any gently used children’s books for the li-

brary of this new school. While there is a budget for library materials for a new school, it usually takes several years to fill up the library shelves. But donations of books can speed up this process and ensure that there are lots of good books in the hands of students when the new school opens. Every student will benefit from having as many suitable books in the library as possible when the school opens. The new school wants to provide as rich a learning environment as possible for its students when its opens this coming September. Having a fully stocked library will be one key to ensuring that such a rich learning environment happens at the new school. Those interested in clearing their book shelves of gently used children’s books can add to the new school’s library collection by contacting Tracy Smith at tracy. jeff@sympatico.ca for drop off information.

End-of-school block party at Therien Martial Arts JOHN CURRY john.curry@metroland.com

Having a blast while helping out the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO). What could be better! That’s why an end-of-school block party being held at Therien Martial Arts on Cedarow Court off Hazeldean Road in Stittsville should be a must-attend event for families in Stittsville and area. It promises to be a great time while raising funds for CHEO. This block party is taking place on Sat-

urday, June 25 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. It will be like a mini-carnival with two bouncy structures as well as lots of games and activities including face painting for youngsters. And what would an event at Therien Martial Arts be without some martial arts demonstrations, with all youngsters getting to try out the sport. There will be a BBQ and bake sale, with all of the proceeds also going to CHEO. There’s also a silent auction. Youngsters can enjoy this block party which includes trying out martial arts

is a lofty goal but achieveable in Randy’s view. In addition, the $20,000 also ties in with the fact that this year is Therien’s 20th year in business. The fundraising is going beyond this end-of-school block party which is kicking off the initiative. Therien will be holding monthly fundraising BBQ’s in both July and August. In addition, Therien marital arts students who are competing in tournaments this summer are collecting pledges for CHEO in order to compete. All of the staff and students at Therien Martial Arts are committed to meeting the fundraising goal of $20,000 over the course of the summer. For instance, donations to CHEO are being accepted in exchange for a month of free training.

for only $20 per person, with all of the proceeds going to CHEO. Therien Martial Arts held a similar block party at the end of last June but it was on a much smaller scale. This year the event is being stepped up because, quite simply, Therien Martial Arts has stepped up how much it wants to raise for CHEO over the course of this summer. In 2009, Therien Martial Arts raised $5,000 while last year the goal was set at $10,000 which was exceeded. This is a very personal thing with Therien Martial Arts owner Randy Colligan as both of his young daughters, Trinity and Kira, have been diagnosed with cystic fibrosis. However, CHEO has provided unbelievable treatment and care and Randy just wants to do something in return, raising funds for CHEO. This year’s goal for Therien’s summer fundraising has been set at $20,000 which

Jumping over hurdles. Exciting. Achieving a personal best time. Satisfying. Winning two provincial high school gold medals. Priceless. Yes, it was quite a track season this spring for Alexandra “Ally” Tierney, a 15 year old grade nine student at Sacred Heart Catholic High School in Stittsville who captured two gold medals in the recent Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations (OFSSA) provincial high school track and field championship in Sudbury. Both gold medal performances were the result of personal best times by Ally. In the 80 metre hurdles event, Ally got herself hyped up by simply yelling at herself. She just wanted to wake up her body for the race, she says, and it sure worked as she set a personal best time and won the gold in a close finish. She had improved over .34 of a second over her time in preliminary racing at the meet. “I was in disbelief that I had just won OFSSA,” she says in recalling her feelings after the race. But she quickly had to get over her excitement and focus on her next event, the 300 metre hurdles which was being run the next day, a day that turned out to be rainy and a bit cold, unlike the sunny conditions that prevailed for the 80 metre race. She did not get off well in her preliminary heat, losing her line on the first hurdle. She came close to not moving on but did, knowing that she could improve on her performance. And this she did in the final in which she ran in the outside lane. Given the staggered start procedure for this 300 metre hurdles race, she could not see her competitors and admits to running the race in fear of being overtaken. “I was scared that whole race,” she says, noting that she tried to run her own race, doing the best that she could do. And it turned it to be spectacular, as she set a personal best time and her winning time of 45.25 seconds was two and a half seconds faster than her time in her preliminary heat. Talk about turning on the jets with the gold medal on the line. It was a second high school provincial gold medal for Ally. Ally started running seriously in the fall of 2008 when she joined the Ottawa Lions Track Club and then switched to

the Cani Club (Constant and Never Ending Improvement) which trains at various facilities in Ottawa such as at Carleton University, at the Louis Riel Dome and at the Terry Fox facility. She was interested in track because her older brother, Joseph, who is now in grade 12 at Sacred Heart, was a track athlete (he now competes in javelin). She also thought that it would be interesting to switch from playing competitive soccer to running. She took up the hurdles for a simple reason: “It’s more exciting than running straight.” A hurdler must maintain speed while also going over a series of hurdles. She has kept at it, although she will show you bruises on her legs from hitting the hurdles and she readily admits that sometimes she does not keep her form and falls into the hurdle. “I enjoy it although sometimes it’s kind of frustrating,” Ally says about running the hurdles. Ally runs 80 metre, 200 metre and 300 metre events with her track club but high school track at her age level only has the 80 metre and 300 metre events. This was her first year competing in hurdles at the high school level. She won at the local high school meets to qualify for the OFSSA provincial meet, running a personal best and even breaking a record held by an athlete who is now a member of Team Canada. Ally is now training to try to achieve her short term goal which is to make Team Ontario for the national summertime track meet that is hosted by the Royal Canadian Legion. Although not a member of Team Ontario last year, she did compete in this national Legion meet, placing fourth. Long term, Ally would like to be a track athlete at an American university such as Texas A&M. Next year she hopes to move up to run with the senior high school athletes which would involve running the 100 metre hurdles. This different distance with more hurdles offers new challenges in technique and training. Ally tries to maintain a balance in her life which includes not only her track involvement but also piano, soccer and schooling. She has just taken her grade six examination in piano on which she plays classical music. She enjoys playing the piano. “It’s nice to be able to play music,” she says. “It just gives you something different to do.” While she plays classical music on piano, her personal music tastes are somewhat different. Indeed, she admits that she likes to listen to what some might consider weird music on her iPod, such as Harry Potter and Disney soundtracks. She also likes rap songs with funny lyrics. “Anything that’s humourous, I like to listen to,” she says. While Ally gave up competitive soccer, she still plays house league soccer with a Munster/Richmond team that she describes as a “great bunch of girls.” And, unlike with her competitive soccer experience, this house league team is quite good and a winner. In school, Ally likes all of her subjects but prefers her science and gym classes the most.

For artist Salena Richard of Richmond, her art proved therapeutic and helped her get through her battle with cancer. Now, she is hoping that a series of portraits that arose out of this will prove inspirational to others. And, at the very least, the art will be on exhibit at the Art Mad gallery at the Stittsville Shopping Centre in Stittsville from this Friday, June 17 through to Saturday, July 2, in an exhibit called “Portraits of Cancer.” It will be a fundraiser for the Irving Greenberg Family Cancer Centre at the Queensway Carleton hospital where Salena received her treatment and where she found all of the doctors and nurses so helpful. “It’s my little contribution back to them,” she says while noting that although all of the eight portraits that will be on exhibit have been sold to those associated with the portraits, donations will be accepted at the exhibit. She is also donating all the proceeds from the sale of the portraits. The portraits, done in graphite with a coloured pencil portion done in the colour associated with the cancer afflicting the person, all represent a person who has had cancer, who is going through cancer treatment or who has passed away from cancer. This whole portrait project began after Salena herself was diagnosed with breast cancer last August. She underwent the various treatments, from chemotherapy to surgery to radiation. During her treatments, she lost her hair and as an artist, she drew a profile of her bald head. She then thought about drawing portraits of other people going through the same thing as she found that her art was proving to be good therapy for her as she fought her cancer. She put out the word on her facebook page, looking for portrait candidates. She got a lot of response, covering a lot of different stages of the disease and involving a lot of different cancers. “In my drawings, each portrait has a hint of colour and that represents their cancer,” Salena says in explaining why she has added a touch of colour to each of the black and white portraits. Each cancer has a colour associated with it, such as pink for breast cancer and dark blue for colon cancer. At the exhibition, she will have a list of the various colours and what cancer each represents. She found doing the portraits to be very therapeutic in her own battle with cancer and it turned out to be something she enjoyed in the midst of her personal fight against breast cancer. However, it was only recently, when she saw all of the eight portraits together, that it hit her that the portraits make quite an impact when seen together. That was when she decided to have the exhibi-

tion and approached Art Mad which was more than supportive of the idea. Salena feels that the portraits show that positive things can come out of the cancer experience and that cancer patients can have hope and those suffering from cancer, like herself, can still do things even as they battle the disease. She did not work continuously on her portraits but worked on them when she felt like it. Salena, who is a member of the new Richmond Village Art Club, admits to be primarily a self taught artist, with portraits being her first love. “I’m primarily self taught in everything I do,” she says, meaning not only her art but her other endeavour which is sewing aprons, using the skills taught to her by her mother and grandmother. She calls her business Art & Aprons, dealing in pencil portraits, abstract painting and aprons, mainly children’s bib aprons but also custom made ones for women. Her apron sales slowed with her cancer diagnosis but now, done with her cancer treatments, she is getting geared up for a busy fall season with the aprons. Her artist work deals a lot in custom portraits, working from photographs supplied by the client. She varies the size although most of 8x10 or 11x14. She says that she has been fascinated with people’s faces since she was a child, especially how the light plays on someone’s facial features. It normally takes her about three weeks to do a portrait, depending on her available time and how complicated the portrait is. For instance, doing a portrait with curly hair takes longer to do than a portrait of someone with no hair. She feels that in recent years, her portraits have been turning out looking really realistic and lifelike. She describes them as “popping off the page,” a huge difference from her work just a few years ago. Salena is so thankful for the great support that she received from her husband, her six year old daughter who is a student at Richmond Public School and her family, as well as so many others. She had no history of cancer in her family. Since her diagnosis, she says she has met so many young people who have been diagnosed with cancer. “It’s no more grandma’s cancer,” she says. Salena will be involved not only with her “Portraits of Cancer” exhibition at the Art Mad gallery starting this Friday, June 17 but will be exhibiting her work at the Richmond Village Art Club’s outdoor art show at Memorial Park in Richmond this Saturday, June 18 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. She is also thinking about holding another fundraiser for the Queensway Carleton Hospital in the fall, possibly in Richmond.

Abby will be in show ring at Westar Farms

JOHN CURRY

john.curry@metroland.com

Abby will be strutting her stuff in the show ring at Westar Farms in Goulbourn this coming weekend, June 18 and 19. It’s the first of three horse shows being held at Westar Farms this summer, the “Spring into Summer Silver & Bronze Horse Show.” And there will be Abby, competing in the Small/Medium Hunter Pony division on the Sunday, going over jumps, trying to impress the judges. Indeed, Abby is well known on the local horse show circuit as a respected contender with numerous prize winning performances and championship ribbons to her credit. In fact, Abby has been competing for the past 14 seasons, yes, 14, because, you see, Abby is a 17 year old pinto pony that is known in the show ring as Huggs ‘n Kisses because she is brown and white, just like the striped Hershey Kisses candies. It must never be forgotten that in a horse show, it is a partnership between riders and horses and for Abby, there have been many such partnerships over the years. She has introduced many riders to the excitement of competition and

has helped many of them to prize winning performances, including championship ribbons and even qualification for the year-end prestigious Trillium Championships in Palgrave, Ontario. Indeed, many of Abby’s former riders have continued on in equestrian competition and/or have used what they learned in their equestrian training in pursuing careers. Take Natasha Dilkie of Stittsville, for example, who was the first to ride Abby in the show ring back in 1998. Natasha still rides and competes but this summer, she will be taking time away from her equestrian focus to travel to Jordan in the Middle East where she will be the staff photographer on an archeological dig. She credits the commitment, respect and teamwork involved in riding with helping her in her career path. Abby, though, besides being well known around the Trillium shows in the Ottawa area, is also a beloved pony right at her home farm at Westar. She is known as a kind, gentle teacher to children experiencing their first time on horseback. She is also a favourite for games and at summer camp. Abby is unquestionably the favourite pony in the Westar barn for Westar riders. Eleven year old Morgan Mees

will be riding Abby in this weekend’s horse show at Westar Farms. Makayla Barta rode Abby last season. Abby and Morgan will be among over 200 horses and ponies competing in the four show rings for the two-day show. In the Hunter classes, judges are looking for smooth, graceful performances over a course of natural jumps. In the Jumper classes, speed and agility are required to jump brightly coloured obstacles in the fastest time with the fewest faults. The various classes begin at 8 a.m. on both Saturday, June 18 and Sunday, June 19, running until about 3 p.m. or 4 p.m. on both days. Admission to this horse show at Westar Farms is free and refreshments are available on the grounds. Those planning to attend should take along a lawn chair and then sit under a shady maple tree to enjoy the equestrian action. Westar Farms is located on Fernbank Road near Dwyer Hill Road in Goulbourn. Take Fernbank Road west from Stittsville Main Street and keep going to just past the Glen Mar Golf and Country Club. Westar Farms will be on the left or south side of the road.

Summer camps with a difference JOHN CURRY

john.curry@metroland.com

Looking for a summer camp with a difference? What about one that has ninja training? Or has movie making? Therien Martial Arts on Cedarow Court off Hazeldean Road in Stittsville is offering summer camps again this summer: two weeks in July and two weeks in August. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of a unique summer camp,â&#x20AC;? says Hana Abaza of Therien Martial Arts, noting that there is a

different theme each week. Those at the summer camp may be creating their own martial arts movie or may be going through ninja training. Besides daily martial arts training, the youngsters will go on special outings each week to such places as the Calypso Water Park and Saunders Farm. There will be both indoor and outdoor games and swimming will be part of the agenda. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a jam packed summer for them,â&#x20AC;? Ms. Abaza says about those who regis-

ter for the summer camps. She says that this summer camp program at Therien Martial Arts is a great way for youngsters to remain active while also learning new martial arts skills, developing mental skills and meeting other kids. She says that attending the summer camp program is a great way to test out martial arts as participants receive martial arts training every day. However, besides the martial arts, there are also many other summer camp activities for the youngsters.

No experience in martial arts is required and every youngsters receives a martial arts uniform for free. Youngsters are expected to bring their own lunch for the summer camp which runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. There is also before and after care available which would extend the day from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. if this works better for the family.

Symbolically finishing up the planting of one of the 15 new shade trees in the school yard at St. Philip Catholic School in Richmond on Tuesday, June 7 are, from left to right, grade six students Christopher Stamos and Brianna McDonald, city of Ottawa RideauGoulbourn ward councillor Scott Moffatt, grade six students Fraser Robertson, Kiersten Van Gaal, Justin Kerr, Ryan Fitzpatrick and Brendan Yannoulopoulos, parent Tracy Dunn who is the St. Philip School Council’s tree coordinator and her young son Sean Dunn.

The yard at St. Philip Catholic School in Richmond is even greener now thanks to the planting of 15 new shade trees on Tuesday, June 7. The trees, supplied and planted by Manotick Tree Movers thanks to a city of Ottawa grant to the school for their purchase, are the latest in a transformation of the yard over the past year to celebrate the school’s 50th anniversary year and to create additional play areas away from the sun’s potentially harmful rays. Seven of the new trees have been planted around the school’s junior play structure. Plans are in the works this fall to build cedar boxes around the base of these trees to provide seating for students as well as protection for the trees themselves. Some of the new trees have been planted around the school’s elementary play structure to provide additional shade for children playing at that location. Several trees were planted in an area where log seating underneath will provide the students with a place for quiet reflection and relaxation. These new trees will be watered throughout the summer by volunteers from the School Council which has set up a watering schedule using a hose from the school. The school yard at St. Philip Catholic School has been seeing a lot of changes over the past year, transforming it into a spot of beauty as well as one where students can enjoy themselves, shielded from the sun’s harming rays thanks to the shade of the trees. Included in this yard transformation has been the creation of a butterfly garden, the introduction of outdoor painted murals and classroom benching. All of this school yard improvement to benefit the students has been possible thanks to the generous donations of various sponsors, the generosity of the city of Ottawa in providing the funding for the purchase of the trees and the effort of numerous community and school volunteers.

Don Gray continues to lead the Richmond Munster Minor Hockey Association (RMMHA). His position was not one of those up for election at the recent RMMHA annual general meeting. Among those elected at the annual general meeting were Laurie Schwartz returned as treasurer, Cheryl Gault returned as secretary, Joe Milroy returned as vice-president, Kevin Ryan returned as risk and safety director and Ben St. Jean returned as head coach. Randy Smart was elected ad equipment manager while Tammy Wolowich takes over as tournament coordinator. Pat Beresford takes over as communications director, replacing Ross Stewart.

Warming up with Olympic swimmers. Awesome. TV cameras everywhere. Fabulous. Being on the national stage. Priceless. That was the experience of Stittsville swimmer Laura Ruttan as she competed in the recent 2011 Canadian World Championship Trials Qualifier in Victoria, B.C. She swam in four races in the event, achieving personal best times in three of them. Her performance got her much closer than previously to the Senior National times in these races. It was just being in a swim meet that was so high profile that helped make the experience so memorable for Laura. She will also be swimming in the 2012 Canadian Olympic Trials Qualifier which also is considered a Senior National Championship, just like these just completed Canadian World Trials. The only difference is that this year, since it is not an Olympic year, the top qualifiers at the meet are heading to the World Championships. Hence the name World Trials. Next year, the top qualifiers will be going on to compete at the Olympics and that is why the event is termed the Canadian Olympic Trials Qualifier.

L a u r a , who has been swimming since she was a baby when her parents had her in the water for parent/tot swims, was a silver medalist at the 2010 Laura Ruttan Age Group national competition as well as being a multiple finalist in the 2011 provincials and Eastern Canadian championship. She was a member of the 2010 Ontario Summer Games team on which she was a multiple medalist. At the 2010 Junior Long Course Provincial Championships, Laura, then 15 and attending South Carleton High School, captured two gold medals, a silver medal and a bronze medal. Her gold medals came in the 200 and 400 individual medley events. “I have always loved the water,” she notes in an email. This is reflected in that she is not only a competitive swimmer but she is also a fully qualified lifeguard and indeed teaches junior swimmers for her swim club, the Nepean Kanata Barracudas, on Friday evenings. She got into competitive swimming initially when she was ten and swimming for the Goul-

bourn Aquatic Club which is now the Goulbourn Sea Hawks. Because she liked competitive swimming so much, she switched from the Goulbourn club to the Nepean Kanata Barracudas so that she could train more and be more involved in a competitive environment. What Laura likes most about competitive swimming is that she alone is responsible for her successes and, on the other hand, her disappointments. “In swimming, if you are willing to train hard, put in the time in the water, and take it seriously … then you can really improve your skills and do well,” Laura says. She particularly likes that in competitive swimming, there is always the next step to take, the next time standard to achieve. At present Laura’s best events are the Individual Medley and the Breaststroke. At the World Trails Senior Nationals, she swam in the 50 metre and 200 metre breaststroke. She hopes that in the coming months, she will achieve the required time standard for the 100 metre breaststroke event. But swimming competitively at a high level is not easy. A typical week of training for Laura means nine to ten practices a week, each two hours long. During the long course season which is now underway, her training is increased to include

three dryland sessions, each one hour long. Laura says that she is usually in the water for about 20 hours a week, starting at 5:30 a.m. each weekday morning, something that happens before she goes on to classes in the High performance Athlete Program at John McCrae Secondary School in Barrhaven. Laura’s immediate goal is to make the finals at a Senior National meet and then earn

a swimming scholarship at an American university. The Nepean Kanata Barracudas Swim Club operates a year-round swimming program for age group and senior competitive swimmers. It offers professional coaching, training and competition for these swimmers, right from the novice competitive swimmer to those at the national team level. The Club’s home pool is at the Nepean Sportsplex.

‘Longwood Gardens’ coming to Stittsville JOHN CURRY john.curry@metroland.com

A short trip to the Pretty Street Community Centre in Stittsville on Tuesday, June 21 will really be a trip to one of the premier botanical gardens of the United States. That’s because the topic for this June meeting of the StittsvilleGoulbourn Horticultural Society will be “Longwood Gardens,” a Pennsylvania landmark spread over more than 1,000 acres. Paul Pietsch, who visited Longwood Gardens over a dozen times with students when he taught botany at Humber College and is himself a graduate of the Niagara Parks School of Horticulture, will be the guide for this pseudo-trip to Longwood Gardens. It will all be happening on Tuesday, June 21 starting at 7:30 p.m. at the Pretty Street Community Centre at the corner of Pretty Street and Orville Street, just east of Stittsville Main Street. The meeting is open to all Horticultural Society members as well as any members of the public who are interested in attending. There is, however, a two dollar fee for non-member guests. Annual memberships for the Horticultural Society can also be purchased at the meeting at a cost of $15 per person. Longwood Gardens, located in Kennett Square in Pennsylvania, consists

of 20 outdoor gardens as well as 20 indoor gardens. It contains 11,000 different types of plants and trees as well as fountains. Longwood’s conservatory is one of the world’s greatest greenhouse structures and is home to 5,500 types of plants. Longwood Gardens attracted nearly 900,000 visitors in 2009 and there are plans to grow and expand the gardens in the coming years. The history of what is now the Longwood Gardens goes back to 1798 when brothers Joshua and Samuel Peirce planted the first specimens of an arboretum. By 1850, they had amassed one of the finest collections of trees in the United States. Industrialist and philanthropist Pierre S. DuPont purchased the property in 1906 to save the arboretum from destruction. He added extensively to the property and added features to the gardens such as the massive conservatory and an extensive system of fountains. In 1907, he built the 600-foot long Flower Garden Walk and followed this up with an Open Air Theatre and then the Conservatory which opened in 1921. Development of Longwood Gardens continued after Mr. du Pont’s death in 1954, making Longwood Gardens into an attraction with maximum public

appeal. Horticultural displays began appearing in the greenhouses. A picnic area and plant nursery were established. A Desert House and 13 outdoor water lily pools were constructed. New greenhouses devoted to tropicals opened. In the 1980’s, indoor “Example Gardens” were created and in 1981 an outdoor Idea Garden was developed, devoted to the latest in annuals, perennials, ground covers, roses, vines, herbs, berries and vegetables. Longwood Garden’s greatest influence on American horticulture has been through its educational programs in keeping with Mr. du Pont’s desire to establish a school where students and others might receive instruction in the arts of horticulture and floriculture. As many as 5,000 students a year have attended continuing education classes at Longwood Gardens. Since 1958, students from around the world have participated in intensive programs ranging from internships to a professional gardener training program to a degree program in public horticultural administration. Longwood Gardens is also home to a performing arts program, taking advantage of the many performance spaces that abound through Longwood Gardens. More than 400 events are held each year, ranging from organ and carillon concerts to theatre productions.

JOHN CURRY john.curry@metroland.comf

Goubourn can now be considered wine country. That’s because the new Jabulani Vineyard & Winery is now open on Jock Trail in southwest Goulbourn. It has taken five years since owners Tom and Janet Moul purchased the vacant property backing on the Jock River from neighbour Bruce Garland and began development of their vineyard and winery, planting cold climate grapes developed for harsher winter conditions like those in Goulbourn and building a log home with a walk-out basement where their sales office is located and from where they will be selling all of their wine and from where a thick wooden door leads into the under-porch area where they can regulate the temperature for their wine brewing. At the official opening of the new enterprise on Saturday, June 11 at 11 a.m., Tom Moul who is from South Africa and who has been making wine since he was 14 years of age, told the crowd of 40 attending the event that it all began back in 2006 when he and his wife Janet purchased the property after a search for a suitable piece of land for their new venture. He pointed out that it has been a five year jour-

ney for he and his wife to sell their first bottle of wine from their own vineyard and winery. And what could be more fitting, it would seem, than that first bottle of wine being purchased by Bruce Garland, the neighbour who sold them the land in the first place. Mr. Garland purchased a bottle of Marquette & Shiraz, a red wine. It is one of six wines that Jabulani Vineyard & Winery is now selling, two of them (Marquette & Shiraz and Marquette, Tabernet, Sauvignon & Cabernet Franc) being red wines and four (Frontenac Gris & Un-oaked Chardonnay sur Lie, Frentenac Gris & Vidal, Barrel Fermented Chardonnay and Frontenac Gris & Pinot Grigio) being white wines. Mr. Moul thanked family and friends for their help in getting the enterprise underway. Indeed, on a recent Saturday, a work party of friends had planted 2,600 new vines at the vineyard, taking the total acerage now filled with vines to 11 acres. For this initial year of sales, the Jabulani Vineyard & Winery has 6,000 bottles of wine ready to be sold. Eventually the vineyard will be able to produce 22,000 bottles of wine annually. The wine can only be purchased at the Jock Trail location. It is not available through the LCBO.

Although not a certified organic farm, the Jabulani Vineyard & Winery does use all organic processes in its operation. At the opening last Saturday, city of Ottawa Rideau-Goulbourn ward councillor Scott Moffatt cut the red ribbon which had been stretched across the door to the sales area to officially open the business. He recalled how he had first met Tom and Janet Moul while out campaigning in last fall’s municipal election. It was his last call of the day when he encountered Tom and Janet sitting on the front porch of their log home and they happily showed him around their fledging vineyard and winery. Since that time, he has been a great advocate of the new business, promoting it in his councillor’s column and doing whatever he can to make sure that they are successful, adding to the ward’s diversity and appeal. With the ribbon cut and Tom having run the bell that sits outside the door of the sales office, it was game on for sales, with the clicking of the cash register marking the real opening of the business. Many visitors retreated to the nearby open shed which usually houses the vineyard’s tractors and provides storage space for the wine making equipment. For this day, though,

it had been turned into a wine tasting mecca with glasses of all of Jabulani’s wines available for sampling, along with plates of cheese and crackers, all to be enjoyed in the comfort of the shed’s shade. Just outside the doors to the sales office there is a gravel-based patio where five wooden wine barrels on end are surrounded by chairs, providing a spot where future visitors will be able to enjoy a glass of wine. There is also a huge wooden table where a larger party can gather and enjoy the Jabulani environment. The Jabulani Vineyard & Winery will be open from Fridays through Sundays from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. from now through to Sept. 4. After that, it will be open by appointment only since Tom and Janet Moul will then be deep into harvest and crush season. Indeed, Tom points out that his agricultural operation is different from that of the farmers around him who are busy basically from spring to fall whereas in the vineyard and winery business, it is a more prolonged season, starting with planting and nurturing the grapes from the spring through the summer and then harvesting the grapes in the fall, after which the grapes have to be processed to make the wine. This year he plans to acquire strawberries from the Richmond Nursery in order to make a strawberry blended wine. He also has long range plans to plant apple trees on a section of his property, eventually producing an apple cider wine. This year he may use wild apples growing on the property to create such a wine. Tom and Janet will assess the market each year and will make changes to their wine offerings if that seems to be what the market demands. So far, their land has turned out to be ideal for growing their cold climate grapes. They have not as yet had any need for irrigation, as nature’s rainfall has been sufficient. A ridge running through their property, with all of the grapes planted on the north side, seems to be to the liking of the grapes. In

addition, a forested area north of one of the grape fields seems to block the north wind, enhancing the environment for the grapes. Jabulani, the name of the vineyard and winery, is a Zulu word for the spirit of happiness, celebrate always. Each bottle of Jabulani wine has this

slogan on its label: The Spirit of Happiness – Celebrate Always!. Jabulani Vineyard & Winery, located at 8005 Jock Trail between Munster Road and Dwyer Hill Road, can be contacted at 613-454-5460 or via email at info@jabulani.ca. The Jabulani website is at www.jabulani.ca.

TD Summer Reading Club SPECIAL TO THE NEWS Summertime is reading time. It is a time when a good book can help you pass those warm summer days, transported to a fictional land or learning about the realities of life through the pages of a non-fiction book.

That is why the Ottawa Public Library has the TD Summer Reading Club which operates at local libraries including the Stittsville and Richmond branches. This year’s TD Summer Reading Club theme is

“Splash! Celebrate Summer,” encouraging youngsters to dive right in and enjoy the pages of many books throughout the summer.

Proposal for communications tower

LIKE A GOOD NEIGHBOUR, STATE FARM IS THERE.®

473711

Stittsville News - JUNE 16, 2011

It’s a debate between aesthetics and radiation concerns on the one hand and the need for improved cell phone and wireless communication on the other hand. And now it is going to the people for input. What this is all about is a proposal to erect a 29 ½ metre tall communications monopole tower at a site near the Sweetnam Drive/ Hazeldean Road intersection. Indeed, the proposed site has already been moved once, from near Hazeldean Road to a less prominent site behind the Bell Canada building which fronts on Hazeldean Road just west of Sweetnam Drive. But concerns about the aesthetics involved, particularly because of its proximity to the newly reconstructed $65 million Hazeldean Road, and about possible radiation effects, as expressed by adjacent residents when the monopole that now exists behind the Johnny Leroux Stittsville Community Arena was proposed, are causing a cautious approach to the situation by city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri. This cautious approach is mirrored by a

more aggressive approach by the landowner on whose lands the pole would be located and who would like to move ahead fairly quickly on the project, albeit with any form of public consultation that may be deemed appropriate. This public consultation is taking the form of a public meeting that councillor Qadri called for this past Tuesday, June 14 at the Johnny Leroux Stittsville Community Arena hall. Councillor Qadri, in his comments about the proposed monopole at a recent meeting of the Stittsville Village Association (SVA), said that the aesthetics of the proposed site near Hazeldean Road is only part of the problem. He said that radiation emitted by the tower is a major concern for some as well. Councillor Qadri noted that $65 million was being spent on improving Hazeldean Road and making it an attractive entrance to the Stittsville community. He said that sticking a monopole along Hazeldean Road in the proposed location would be a detriment to this entrance to the community. Indeed, he does not even like what is there now along

Hazeldean Road in this vicinity. “I hate those hydro poles that are there now,” he said. He said that the foliage around the proposed site and the fairly low Bell Canada building will not sufficiently hide the pole, meaning that it will be very visible to those going along Hazeldean Road in either direction. He suggested that locating this proposed Telus communication tower at the new fire hall on Iber Road might be a better possibility. Speaking at the SVA meeting, Mr. Sweetnam said that placing the Telus tower at the new fire hall is not a good option because the tower would be even higher and the site would not provide coverage of the Stittsville Main Street area, requiring a second communications tower to be located in that area. He suggested that locating this proposed Telus communications tower near Hazeldean Road and Sweetnam Drive would not ruin the nature of the new Hazeldean Road, adding that the tower would be providing an important service to the community in terms of better reception and more

capacity. “There is definitely a hole in the coverage,” he said. Mr. Sweetnam pointed out that there are no residences in a roughly 100 metre zone around the proposed new communications towers. He claimed that surrounding buildings will provide some screening for the site. Stittsville Village Association director David Jenkins noted at the SVA meeting that the concerns of adjacent residents were taken into account with the Bell Mobility tower that is now located behind the Johnny Leroux Stittsville Community Arena and this should be done in this case as well. However, he did acknowledge that communication towers are something that the community has to live with in today’s world and that they have to go someplace. “There is no ideal site for these things,” he said. SVA immediate past president Metin Akgun commented that there is always a need for these towers providing communication services, adding that there has been no determination as yet as to what level of radiation from them might be harmful.

The city is taking the guesswork out of recycling by allowing all plastic containers in the blue bin. Now the only materials residents can’t put in their recycling bins are plastic bags and styrofoam containers. Most notably, the thin No. 1 plastic containers used to package fruit, eggs and baked goods – also referred to as “clamshell” containers – are now allowed in the bin, as are single-serve yogurt cups. Plastic pails, painting trays and flower pots can also be recycled now. That may come as a surprise to many residents who were already putting those items in their bin, leaving the city’s waste collection contractor to sort the forbidden plastics out of the pile. That extra step will be no more as the change is effective immediately. Part of the confusion is because the city used to collect many of these types of plastic in the past, but a dip in the market for some recyclable plastics around 2003 meant it cost municipalities more to collect certain plastics than they could get in return for selling them in the commodities market. Ottawa and other municipalities

stopped collecting some types of plastic because it was too costly to do so. But the provincial government recently created a financial incentive for two facilities in southern Ontario to buy types of plastic that aren’t in high demand, so the city now has a buyer who is willing to purchase those types of plastic. The city’s solid-waste services department estimates the change will divert an additional 1,400 tonnes of waste from the landfill. That will bring Ottawa closer to its target of diverting 60 per cent of waste away from the landfill, said Mayor Jim Watson. “Anything to bring us closer to 60 per cent is good for the environment and our pocketbooks,” he said. The expansion will end up costing the city around $46,000. While the addition of new plastics is expected to generate around $50,000 in revenue, it will also cost more to collect additional plastic. But the cost is worthwhile because it helps extend the life of the city’s landfill, said Marilyn Journeaux, the city’s manager of solid waste services. “Our landfill is a valuable asset,” Journeaux said.

Richmond is a happenin’ place this Saturday, June 18. There is an art show. And a quilt show. And a chicken BBQ. There is a group of recreational vehicle enthusiasts who are camping at the Richmond fairgrounds. And, on Sunday, June 19, there’s a horse show at the fairgrounds, just to top things off. The art show is something new that is happening for the first time this Saturday, June 18, all thanks to the recently formed Richmond Village Art Club. It is an outdoor show which will be set up at Memorial Park at the corner of Perth Street and McBean Street in Richmond, running from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Close to 20 artists will be showing their work, ranging from textiles to landscapes to photography to oils and acrylics. There will even be one artist who specializes in painting on rocks. Those involved will be not only from the Richmond Village Art Club but also some will be from the Ottawa West Arts Association. Indeed, there may even be space for some last minute entries – those interested should contact Coralie Bartley of the Richmond Village Art Club at 613-838-5328 but act quickly – the show’s this Saturday. While a few of the Richmond Village Art Club members will be just exhibiting, most of the art will be on sale. “Certainly the bulk of it will be for sale,” says Ms. Bartley. The show will go ahead even if

it rains as shelters and tents will be set up in Memorial Park just in case there are some showers. This art show is the latest project of the Richmond Village Art Club which has been busy since its recent formation. The Club has held a meet and greet at the Richmond branch of the Ottawa Public Library. It has had members’ works on display at the Richmond library branch and Club member Les Bartley has his work on display at the North Gower library branch this month. Club members also helped judge a recent environmental poster contest held by the Richmond Village Association. But the art show is only one of the happenings in Richmond this Saturday, June 18. Almost right across the street, at The Country Quilter, there is the ninth annual outdoor quilt show that will have over 125 quilts on display in the spacious backyard. There is no admission charge; just drop in and look at them. Members of the Richmond Area Quilters Guild will also be participating in the show, displaying a number of quilts. But there is going to be more than just quilts on display. The All Dolled Up Doll Club, whose members make whimsical and creative dolls, will have dolls on display at this quilt show again this year. Members of the club will even be on hand to explain how they come up with their doll designs. But there will be more than even quilts and dolls on display. There is also going to be

numerous, in the range of 200, little dresses and shorts on display. These are colourful items that quilters have been making with leftover fabrics and which are going to be taken to Uganda where CANHAVE, a registered charity to which Ann McLean of The Country Quilter belongs, will distribute them to orphans who are attending a CANHAVE supported school there. Ann recently travelled there to help set up a sewing room at the school which will help young girls to learn a marketable skill, giving them independence and a way to look after themselves and their families, many of whom have lost parents as a result of AIDS. This annual outdoor quilt show (and more) is being held from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. this Saturday, June 18. The show will go ahead rain or shine, although in the case of rain, the quilts will be moved to the nearby St. Paul’s United Church where they will be displayed on the pews. Except for the afternoon of last year’s show, this outdoor quilt show has always enjoyed good weather. This outdoor quilt show was started in 2003 to promote greater understanding and knowledge of the art of quilting, to promote the sharing of creativity in quilt making and to provide a venue in which quilters can showcase their work. And speaking of St. Paul’s United Church, it is an important location to keep in mind for those attending the art show or the quilt show or both. See RICHMOND, page 29

From page 28 The church will be providing a lunch from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. for anyone who drops in. So, you can enjoy the quilt show or the art show, drop in for a sandwich, salad and dessert, along with a coffee or tea, and then resume your viewing. The lunch will be going for seven dollars per person. And, speaking of food,

don’t forget that this Saturday, June 18 is the date for the annual chicken BBQ hosted by the Richmond Volunteer Firefighters. As usual, this is taking place at the Dining Hall at the Richmond fairgrounds, running from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. You can eat-in or take it home – great barbecued chicken. For tickets in advance, you should contact fire-

Richmond is busy spot this Saturday fighter Larry Monuk at 613-838-2281. While at the fairgrounds, you will notice the presence of a dozen or so recreational vehicles who are staying there this week as part of their visit to the Nation’s Capital. The Monaco Northwest Explorers RV Group will be using the fairgrounds as their base for their week-long visit to the area, starting on Monday, June 13 and running through the weekend. The Richmond Village Association has prepared packages about Richmond which will be given to these visiting RV’ers. The packages will include an historical walking tour of the village as well as other information about village businesses and attractions, including a booklet about the historical murals that are on the exterior of the Richmond Memorial Community Centre. And, if you have not got your fill of activity on Saturday, you can always attend the Dwyer Hill Riding Club’s horse show that will be held at the Richmond fairgrounds on Sunday, June 19.

JOHN CURRY john.curry@metroland.com

The buzz coming from the dining tent at the Canadian Golf and Country Club on Saturday evening, June 11 said it all. Here was a group of friends and acquaintances, eating together, chatting and laughing together, all brought together not by their love of the game of golf, although there was an afternoon tournament which attracted over 130 golfers, but by their affection for and friendship with the late Rory Bradley. It was the first annual Rory Bradley Memorial Golf Tournament. And it was Carolyn Bradley, Rory’s wife, who perhaps said it best when, in her closing remarks at the event, said that friends and family were what mattered most to Rory and that this tournament had given everyone a chance to see friends and people that they all did not see often enough. It was a chance to catch up with longtime friends, all united by their friendship with Rory. “I know that Rory is with us in spirit today,” she said, noting that sports and youth were both passions in Rory’s life. Proceeds from the tournament are going to the Algonquin College Foundation’s Rory Bradley Bursary as well as the Do It For Daron (D.I.F.D.) youth mental health awareness initiative. And even before the proceeds from the tournament are tallied up, the Rory Bradley Bursary is off to a great start as the endowment fund for the bursary already totals $36,328 just from previous in memoriam donations made in the past year since Rory passed away suddenly on May 22, 2010 at the age of 54. These donations, totaling over $18,000, have been matched by the Algonquin College Foundation to account for the $36,328 total so far – with the golf tournament proceeds still to come. Indeed, when the amount was announced by Carolyn Bradley and a giant cheque representing the total was presented to Graham Thompson, manager of major gifts for the Algonquin College Foundation, a giant roar of applause erupted in the room. And the best was yet to come as Mr. Thompson, in his thank you remarks, said that in his 18 years involved with fundraising, he had never seen so much support for an endowment fund as that exhibited for the Rory Bradley Bursary. He said that the Rory Bradley Bursary fund will be going to help students who are facing challenges for their schooling and who have some connection with Stittsville Minor Hockey. He added that every year there will be monies dispensed from the fund, meaning that the Rory Bradley Bursary will touch the lives of students for many years to come. And the golf tournament, with over 130 golfers taking part and with its associated fundraising such as a silent auction and even a live auction, is going to add substantially to the Rory Bradley Bursary funds. The golden-tongued banter of MC Liam Maguire, hockey’s trivia expert and a close friend of Rory Bradley himself, generated a total of $2,325 from the five items up for grabs in the live auction that he oversaw. A Drew Brees signed

NFL sweater brought in $500 while a signed helmet of NFL quarterback Peyton Manning, called “one of the most unique items ever in Ottawa golf tournament history” by Liam, went for $675. A Canadian Golf and Country Club membership, valued at $1,500 and donated by the Club, went for $600. A stick signed by Ottawa Senators’ Jason Spezza brought in $150 while an autographed, limited edition Daniel Alfredsson 1,000th game stick attracted a winning bid of $400. There was also a silent auction which also generated funds and which saw items such as a Gordie Howe picture go to happy bidders. But the evening was more than just fundraising. There were also moments of memories such as when Liam Maguire asked Ky Roesler, who had worked with Rory when they were both part of Johnny Leroux’s Goulbourn township parks crew back in the late 1970’s, about what he remembered most about his longtime friend. Ky’s response that Rory was a person who would do anything for you hit home – that’s how many others also remember Rory. Liam Maguire himself told how Rory had so much of an impact on him as a young man that he decided that if he had a son, he would name it after Rory. And this has since come to pass. He played both hockey and ball hockey with Rory and has in the past told the story of Rory actually lifting Liam’s car out of a ditch on Fernbank Road – yes, he was that strong. But Liam remembers Rory most for being someone was always looking out for his friends. “To me he represented a guy who had your back,” he said, adding that for guys, having a friend like this always means a lot. And talk about prizes – the organizers did such a good job of collecting prizes that more than 80 golfers went home with prizes, not from their golfing but simply from the luck of the draw, with all those who had purchased prize passports eligible for the draw. These prizes ranged from bottles of sparkling apple cider to restaurant certificates to movie passes to Ottawa 67’s tickets to rounds of golf to, well, the list goes on and on. Winners included Ross Bradley, Sue Goddard, Kathleen Sterling, Tom Bissonnette, Gord Kelly, Susan Oliver, Pete Ellis, Tom Demarco, Bruce Jessiman, Dave Graham, Jill Benger, Weldy Roesler, Dave Garland, Mike Shouldice, John Bissonnette, Ky Roesler, Justin Sterling, Tyson Sullivan, Connor Graham, Wayne Lucky, Colleen Welch, Tara Bradley, Steve Blenkarn, Tyler Bradley, Jimmy Emery, George Verge, Tim Leeson, Dave White, Terry Sinnott, Janice Kelly, Larry Fee, Christine Smith, Peter Oliver, Ellen Brayton, Deb Bradley, Kenny Welch, Dave Waterhouse, Huntley Ryan, Cindy Bissonnette, Chris Thompson, Daryl Kinkade, Brent Bradley, Bruce Moore, Kyle Baker, Kevin Miller, Brian Bradley…and more. Of course, the golf was not forgotten and a number of prizes went to those with the longest drives, those closest to the pin, and the top golfers. Among

these winners were Christine Savoie, Patty Carter, Dave Waterhouse and Ky Roesler. The tournament was played in a scramble format, with a shotgun start at 1 p.m. Warm conditions, with increasingly overcast skies, prevailed. This tournament grew out of a smaller initiative last year when the Stittsville Legion directed funds from its golf tournament to the Rory Bradley Bursary fund. That inspired a group of Rory’s family and friends to decide to host a specific Rory Bradley Memorial Golf Tournament and thanks to a lot of effort by many, this year’s tournament, the first of what should be many, was held. Carolyn Bradley, in her wrap up remarks, thanked all of those who had helped in any way and specifically highlighted the efforts of Jim and Susan Oliver, Mark Kelly, John Bissonnette, John

Leroux and Liam Maguire. She thanked the sponsors who had come on board and presented commemorative photos of Rory’s initials in arena ice to major sponsors David Graham, Ross Bradley of Bradley’s Insurance and John Stanton of Kanata Myers Chev Buick GMC. Sponsors for the tournament included Bradley’s Insurance, David Graham, Kanata Myers Chev Buick GMC, Ottawa Citizen, Rocketman Graphics, Liam Maguire’s Centre Ice, John Bissonnette & Associates Ltd., Ottawa Sooners, RinkPro Sports, Christine Buck and Barry Glasgow, Larry and Laurie Fee, JRB Plumbing, Brent and Jody Bradley, eSight, The Delfino Group, TD Canada Trust, My Car.ca, The Cernak Family, Tim Benger Painting Contractor, Bradley Kelly Construction Ltd., John Leroux TableMaster, Carleton Place Orange Lodge No. 48 and Harvest Moon Orchard.

Funds raised by the tournament are still to be donated to the Rory Bradley Bursary Fund, increasing the amount indicated with this giant cheque.

RVA supports expansion of Jock River Estates JOHN CURRY john.curry@metroland.com

The Richmond Village Association (RVA) would like to see the Jock River Estates expand. Jock River Estates is the estate lot development on the south side of Ottawa Street immediately west of the Richmond Legion Hall. Currently the development consists of 14 homes on Sangreet Place but a proposed phase two of the development involves another 11 lots on the southward extension of Sangreet Place. However, the second phase has been caught up in changed city of Ottawa polices.

While the proposed second phase did beat the deadline on a city-imposed moratorium on estate lot applications, it is now blocked from advancing because of the city’s Official Plan policy forbidding estate lot subdivisions within one kilometer of an urban or village area. Advocacy for allowing the second phase of this subdivision has now been taken up by Fred Logan who would like to live on a lot in the second phase and so has become a self-described unpaid consultant for the developer, trying to get phase two approved on the understanding that, if successful, he will get his choice of lot.

Mr. Logan has been trying to enlist community support for phase two of Jock River Estates. He has a supporting petition signed by the residents of phase one of the subdivision. He has a letter of support from Mike Pasieka of the adjacent Richmond Centennial Golf Club. He has approached both the Friends of the Jock River and the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority on the matter, with both foreseeing no issues. He has met with local city of Ottawa councillors and is meeting with appropriate city staff on the issue. And now he has received support from the RVA which passed a motion at its June 7 meeting

RVA directors Leslie Abraham and Heather Martineau both wanted the RVA to be specific about why it was supporting this particular development proposal so that the RVA is transparent and can in the future take different stands with regard to other development proposals in the future if warranted. RVA secretary Rosemary McArthur withdrew any concerns that she had about the development upon learning that infrastructure requirements would involve private services and that the number of homes involved, 11, would not generate enough traffic to cause any transportation issues in the village. Mr. Logan is hopeful that city council’s Agriculture and Rural Affairs Committee, which handles planning matters in the rural area of the city, will make a decision to allow this extension of Jock River Estates. He claims that the Committee has already approved a similar situation in the Greely area.

agreeing with allowing the second phase of the development. At its May meeting, the RVA Board of Directors had put off any such motion of support following the expression of concerns by some directors about the implications of the RVA indicating support for a particular development and what kind of precedent this might set for the organization. In addition, Mr. Logan was not at the meeting and the directors wanted to hear from him. So, he was at the June 7 meeting, telling his story and seeking a letter of support from the RVA as he tries to get the second phase approved. RVA director Bruce Webster defended the RVA’s positive position on this Jock River Estates issue, saying that just because the RVA gives its approval for one such development does not mean that it has to approve every development brought forward to it. He said that this is a case of the RVA embracing the kind of development that it favours, noting as well that Mr. Logan has garnered community support for the subdivision extension. RVA director Harvey Snyder commented that the extension of this estate lot development fits the RVA’s idea of how the village and area should be developing, unlike the recent Mat-

What a way to celebrate the Feast of St. John the Baptist – great food, marvelous company and reasonable prices! And it is all happening at the annual BBQ at St. John the Baptist Anglican Church in Richmond on Friday, June 24. The BBQ will run from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., with everyone welcome. There will be steak available as well as hamburger or veggie platters or hot dog platters. In addition, there will be some awesome salads and strawberries and ice cream for dessert. And the prices – well, you can’t beat $14 for steak, $8 for the hamburger or veggie platter and $6 for the hot dog platter. To pre-purchase tickets, please contact Jean Langman at 613489-3431 or call the church office at 613-838-9643. St. John the Baptist Anglican Church in Richmond is the first church established in Carleton County and is marked as such

with a provincial historical plaque. The original church was begun in 1823 and was consecrated in 1838. It was later replaced in 1860 with the present building. The cornerstone for the original church building was laid on St. John the Baptist’s feast day on June 24, 1823. It is believed that this is how the name of the church originated. St. John the Baptist was an itinerant preacher and major religious figure at the time of Christ. He led a movement of baptism in the Jordan River. Most biblical historians agree that St. John baptized Jesus in the Jordan, having recognized Jesus as the Messiah. This baptism marks the beginning of Jesus’ public ministry. He died when he was beheaded by Herod at the request of his stepdaughter Salome. St. John the Baptist is the patron saint of French Canada as well as Newfoundland, Puerto Rico, Jordan and a number of other places.
