Hazeldean Road bridge opens SPECIAL TO THE NEWS

The Hazeldean Road bridge over the Carp River is now open to traffic. It was opened up for traffic last Monday, Oct. 31 at noon, under sunny skies, with city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri, in his personal vehicle and

to the fact that the curbs were not yet installed due to the presence of the former temporary bypass. There are still some landscaping and other works yet to be completed on the project. It is expected that this will be done within the next two weeks. City of Ottawa staff and representatives of the contractor were on hand to witness the opening of this bridge which has been a target of some criticism for its grandiose appearance with high pillars, all to span the Carp River which previously had gone under the Hazeldean Road via a culvert. The bridge was made part of the Hazeldean Road reconstruction project, a joint municipal/provincial/federal initiative, as it is to serve as a gateway fea-

The opening of the bridge was delayed from the late summer after movement of the structure was detected when supports were being withdrawn. Investigations were carried out to determine the cause of the movement and what remedial measures needed to be taken to secure the bridge. The height of the bridge was necessary so that pedestrian pathways could go under it along the banks of the Carp River. The eventual plan is to have pedestrian pathways along the Carp River both north and south of Hazeldean Road. These pathways will be linked under this Hazeldean Road bridge.

Beavers: To trap or not to trap SPECIAL TO THE NEWS

Stittsville resident Anita Utas is another who wants to see a moratorium placed on any trapping of beavers at the Paul Lindsay Park pond, wanting the beavers to be treated in a more humane, progressive way. She argues that an inexpensive water flow device can be installed at the pond that would eliminate any danger of flooding caused by the beavers. She claims that these devices have been used by many municipalities across North America for such a purpose. Ms. Utas claims that a trapper used by the city will use Conibear traps to trap and kill the beaver, saying that the trapped animal trapped can sometimes take minutes or over an hour to die in such a trap. She also feels that having these traps in the area is a danger to residents and pets. She notes that because the beavers at the Paul Lindsay Park pond have been taking down trees around the pond, local residents have wrapped many larger trees with wire mesh to prevent their destruction. Ms. Utas believes that the city does not understand the critical role that beavers play in the environment. “They are a ‘keystone’ species that help to maintain healthy aquatic habitat that supports a wide variety of animal and plant life,” she writes in an email release. “They help filter toxins and excess nutrients from the water and help to prevent erosion.”

The annual Snowflake Bazaar and Luncheon will be held on Saturday, Nov. 5 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at St. Thomas Anglican Church in Stittsville. Crafts, baking preserves. Children’s area. Silent auction. Homemade soup. Everyone welcome to attend.

The beaver, a water loving rodent whose fur provided the motivation for much of the early exploration of Canada, is much honoured. The beaver is featured on the nickel; it was pictured on the first pictorial postage stamp in the Canadian colonies in 1849; and it was the mascot of the 1976 Olympics in Montreal. And, oh yes, it is the national animal of Canada. But right now, beavers are stirring up the waters, as it were, at Paul Lindsay Park in Stittsville. The city of Ottawa wants to trap beavers which have recently moved into the pond at Paul Lindsay Park because it is considered a storm water management pond rather than a natural environmental feature. It is the city’s policy to carry out its responsibility to maintain its storm water management facilities by removing any beavers since their activities could jeopardize the flood protection function of such facilities, resulting in property damage for homeowners. The beaver are removed in such situations by trapping by licensed trappers. City of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri agrees that the city is talking about removing the beavers from the Paul Lindsay Park pond to prevent any flooding danger that might arise from beaver activities.

He says that some residents have contacted him on the matter but says that trapping beavers in such situations is the city’s normal procedure. Ministry of Natural Resources guidelines and regulations restrict the relocation of live trapped beavers to one kilometer or less. Such a small distance would probably mean that the beavers would return, leaving trapping and killing in a humane fashion as the only viable alternative. “The city regrets the need to take this action,” councillor Qadri writes in an email, “but in the interests of providing flood protection to taxpayers and businesses, it is an appropriate, industry standard practice, and done in accordance with all relevant guidelines and licensing provisions.” However, such arguments hold little water with those who oppose such trapping of beavers. Stittsville resident Paul Renaud is one of these. He has urged councillor Qadri to ban all trapping of beavers in the ward until the city implements a wildlife strategy which he believes would save the beavers in this case. He wants Stittsville to set an example for the rest of the city of Ottawa to follow. He calls trapping “a 19th century solution to a 21st century problem that ignores 20th century scientific research that shows that beavers are critical to aquatic eco-system health.”

City of Ottawa Councillor Reports By Shad Qadri, Councillor Ward Six Stittsville City of Ottawa

October 31st, 2011

2012 Budget Approval On October 26th, 2011, the City of Ottawa tabled a spending plan for 2012 that will keep Ottawa on a course that is sustainable for the long-term. Following on the solid fiscal framework Council put in place last year, Budget 2012 proposes a tax increase of just 2.39 percent - below the annual maximum target of 2.5 percent. The draft budget includes a continued freeze on fees for City recreation programs, Council budgets and salaries and a transit-fare increase limited to 2.5 percent. Additionally, the City is also reducing its workforce. While the budget limits new demands on taxpayers, it will also help prepare the capital city for the 150th anniversary of Canada’s Confederation in 2017. Budget 2012 contains an acceleration of capital works projects – Ottawa on the Move – that will provide needed upgrades and repairs to existing roads, sidewalks, bridges and sewers. The City of Ottawa is in strong financial shape, with the lowest debt per capita among the big Canadian cities. By accelerating our capital investment in capital projects, at interest rates below three per cent, it’s estimated the City will save $12.9 million. Specific Projects 2012-2014 Included in the 2012 Budget: $4.4 million to plan, design and construct new parks in growth areas to meet the parkland and leisure needs of developing communities outside of the Greenbelt, including Kanata, Greely, Barrhaven, Stittsville, Cumberland, Goulbourn and Orléans. Includes $77 000 for Par-La-Ville Park and $40 000 for Coyote Run Park. Full Transit service extended to Stittsville. Securing 100 parking spaces for Park & Ride use at Scotiabank Place. Road resurfacing: Huntmar Drive from Maple Grove Road to Palladium Drive, Rothbourne Road from Highway 7 to Lloydalex Crescent, Beverly Street from West Ridge Drive to Stittsville Main Street, Jonathan Pack Street from Abbott Street to Beverly Street. Bike lanes and paved shoulders as part of resurfacing projects on over 15 projects, including Old Prescott Road, Huntmar, Church Street, Tenth Line Road and Galetta Side Road. Further information and specific Ward highlights please consult my website as full information will be available shortly- Swing equipment at Cypress Gardens Park The swings at Cypress Gardens Park were recently removed. However, please be assured that the swings will be reinstalled. The Parks Department recently removed the swings and swing structure from the playground in order to have them repaired. It is currently being welded and will be thoroughly inspected prior to being replaced in the playground. Parks staff are hoping to have the repairs completed this week and the swings reinstalled by the end of next week.

As for selling her art, she acknowledges that it is always “such a thrill” when this happens because it means that people have been touched enough by her art that they are willing to part with their hard earned money. Diane had always dabbled in art as a child and in high school. It was not until her children grew up, though, that she had the time to pursue her love of art. She took lessons with some local artists and studied at the Ottawa School of Art. She even was involved in a co-op gallery for a while, something that she terms a “great experience”, exposing her to the business side of the world of art. Diane is but one of three artists new to the Stittsville Artists Studio Tour this year. The others are Wendy Murray and Josie Braden. Josie Braden of 19 Glen Abbey Court in Amberwood has been painting for about 18 years. She started with oils and later began studying and painting with watercolours. She not only enjoys the challenge of painting but also likes the beautiful effects of colour and transparency which can be created. “I love to drive off to some far or near location to paint from nature,” she writes in an email. “Time disappears and you become one within yourself. It’s magic.” “There is so much beauty in our world and I like to think that I am preserving some of it,” she states. Josie has attended many workshops on art and feels that she has learned a great deal from experienced artists at them. She enjoys workshops because at them she is able to completely immerse herself in what she is doing. The eight annual Stittsville Artists Studio Tour is happening this Saturday, Nov. 5 and Sunday, Nov. 6 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on both days. See SIX ARTISTS, page 5

It’s not a destination on this weekend’s eighth annual Stittsville Artists Studio Tour but the Curves fitness studio at the Stittsville Shopping Centre (Shoppers Drug Mart plaza) on Stittsville Main Street features certainly the largest and perhaps one of the best works of Stittsville artist Diane Dean who is one of the six artists on this year’s tour. It is a Mediterranean-inspired scene in which the viewer is transported to a view of a vast expanse of blue water, dabbled here and there with sailboats. Indeed, it no doubt transports ladies working out on the Curves fitness apparatus to a dreamed-of paradise. Where else can you overlook a sunny Mediterranean vista while keeping fit in Stittsville? This is one of Diane Dean’s wall murals, one of the aspects of her art that she began when a neice had a baby boy and asked her to do a wall mural for her. She had never painted anything larger than a standard painting before this request but since then she has done a lot of murals in children’s rooms and bathrooms. One of her secrets is that she gets the customer family involved, helping to do a little bit of the painting or coming up with a phrase to be included on the wall. This gives a feeling of ownership to the family as well as one of accomplishment. It leads to a lot of happiness with the mural. She likes doing wall murals because, as she says, “it’s fun.” A mural usually takes a couple of weeks to complete. But her art involves much more than wall murals and those who visit her home at 181 Hartsmere Drive in Stittsville in this weekend’s Stittsville Artists Studio Tour will find oil and watercolour paintings. Recently she has started working with acrylics, something which allows her to get into collages and other mixed media. “I’m really looking forward to getting more involved in that new media,” Diane says. Born in the Maritimes where she spent much of her life, Diane reflects this heritage in her art, with landscapes that reflect the spirit of the sea. Indeed, she has done quite a number of seascapes, including many of the famous Peggy’s Cove in Nova Scotia. “That’s kind of where my heart lies,” she says, acknowledging her Maritime roots. She is looking forward to participating in this year’s Stittsville Artists Studio Tour, her first experience in the event. She hopes John Curry photo that people drop by Stittsville artist Josie Braden is with one of her paintings. She will to see what she does be one of the artists involved in the eight annual Stittsville Artists as an artist. Studio Tour this coming weekend.

Let’s name the bridge The new bridge on Hazeldean Road over the Carp River should be named. Now that we have this impressive gateway bridge, we think that it deserves a name, one that is reflective of its imposing and memorable appearance. We can think of one name that we believe would be appropriate and worthy of consideration. Why not name the bridge after Rick Hansen. He travelled along Hazeldean Road and crossed the Carp River at this location back in 1986 on his original Man in Motion Tour. His 25th anniversary tour followed this same route just last Friday as it went through Kanata and made its way to Stittsville. The day had even been declared Rick Hansen Relay Day in the city of Ottawa.

Rick Hansen is a Canadian icon, not only for what he did on his initial Man in Motion Tour but also for all that he has done for spinal cord research and awareness in the quarter century since then. Indeed, his message that “Anything is Possible” and that everyone can make a difference in their community resonates with everyone – it is so positive and such a great community building notion. Perhaps a replica of the Rick Hansen 25th Anniversary Relay Medal, which is being carried across Canada in the ongoing 25th Anniversary Relay, could be imbedded into the posts of the bridge. And what a location to have a municipal structure named after Rick Hansen, being only a short

distance west of a road that bears the name of another Canadian icon, Terry Fox. Indeed, Terry Fox was an inspiration for Rick Hansen as he set about on his Man in Motion Tour back in 1986. Naming this bridge after Rick Hansen would demonstrate to one and all that Stittsville and indeed the whole city of Ottawa is committed to being an accessible community for everyone. Now that we have this bridge, let’s use it not only as a symbolic and transportation structure but also as a vehicle to honour and recognize an outstanding Canadian who twice has touched the Stittsville community – with his original Man in Motion tour in 1986 and now with the Rick Hansen 25th Anniversary Tour.


Just what the world needs - more toys When someone gives us a new toy, it’s only natural to thank him. When someone gives millions of people new toys, it’s only natural that the world thanks him. And that’s why you’re still reading, weeks after his death, tributes to the late Steve Jobs. And who can say they’re not deserved? Although he didn’t accomplish it single-handedly, Jobs made computing accessible to the average person. Before the MacIntosh computer, you had to be a bit of a geek to function easily in the computer world. The Mac made that world more friendly, which is an important contribution, given the fact that the computer world is now the world. Whether we like it or not. Many people don’t, but they’re stuck with it and having easyto-use computers makes their lives more bearable. However, it’s not the several generations of Apple desktops and laptops that earned Steve

CHARLES GORDON Jobs the gratitude of millions. Those weren’t the toys he gave us. No, the inspiration for all those heartfelt tributes was the creation of the iPod and the iPhone. Those two small devices were, predictably, snapped up by early adopters and, less predictably, by just about everyone else. You can measure how significant that was by thinking back to the year before the invention of the iPod and what you were doing then. That was the year 2000. Your music was probably on CDs. If you wanted to listen to music while you went for your morning run, you had to carry a bulky portable disc player or, if you were a bit behind, laboriously transfer those discs to

tape cassettes to be played on your Walkman. Or, if you were one of those perhaps fortunate people untouched by technology, you listened to your CDs (or phonograph records) at home and listened to the birds when you went outside. If someone had told you, in the year 2000, that you would, within the year, be loading your CDs into the computer and then transferring songs onto a device the size of a deck of playing cards, you wouldn’t have believed it. Now millions do it. What a toy! It’s not all good. The advent of the iPod and digitized music generally has caused a crisis in the music industry and made it more difficult for many musicians to earn a living. Fixated on their shiny toys, most people don’t seem to notice. The impact of the iPhone is more visible. You see it in people on the street who never look up, people in restaurants who

never speak to their partners, people who seemingly talk to themselves in shopping centres. You hear it in electronic noises that echo in theatres. The upside is that people are connected at all times. They need never be out of touch. They can talk to their friends from a forest. They can settle every argument by Googling the answer from the tavern. The office can contact them at the church. From anywhere, they can get directions to the nearest phone store, in case there’s something newer. The benefit to humanity is difficult to measure, but no one who has the toy is going to give it up, or stop looking for the next one.

This, in a world that should really be spending its resources bringing fresh water to billions who need it, eradicating diseases such as malaria and creating affordable housing in every country of the world. The world has many pressing needs and builds better phones. Toys are us. That’s probably not what Steve had in mind.

When you think about it, both these devices, the iPod and the iPhone, are things the world could quite easily get along without. That could be said of most toys. But what can’t be said about most toys is that the world economy now seems to consist of more and more companies trying to invent and market similar gadgets.

It’s being held on Sunday, Nov. 13 from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Stittsville Legion Hall on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville. Among the vendors there to

brighten your shopping experience will be ekobear (eco-friendly toys), sassy scarves, The Pampered Chef, Stampin’ Up creative memories and R & R House cleaning. But there’s more. There will be face painting for the youngsters, done by Lolo. It’s something not be missed. The funds raised through this Trade Show will be used to help the Stittsville Ice Pirates minor hockey team purchase equipment and participate in tournaments.




Members of the Catholic Women’s League (CWL) at Holy Spirit Parish in Stittsville who are getting ready to make their now famous Christmas pudding which will be sold at the CWL’s upcoming second annual Christmas bazaar at the Holy Spirit Church hall on Saturday, Nov. 19 are, from left to right, Gaye Lalonde, Ann Ryan, Lois Desjardine, Teresa Cardeal, Donella Gabriele and Margaret Matthews.

The Community Bible Church on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville is holding The Sow Good Sale on Saturday, Nov. 12. Something for everyone including a kids only shopping area. All profits will be used to help people in Seje in Kenya. Everyone welcome. See www.cbcstittsville. com/home/news/sowgoodsale.

The ladies of the Catholic Women’s League (CWL) at Holy Spirit Parish in Stittsville have been creating crafts since last summer, all in preparation for the CWL’s upcoming second annual Christmas bazaar. But there will be more than just crafts at this year’s bazaar on Saturday, Nov. 19. There will be a variety of other items such as painted skates, knitted goods, wreaths and more. And Fifth Avenue Jewelry will be on hand as well. And, for the first time at Holy Spirit Parish, the “10,000 Villages” store will have a presence, selling crafts from around the world. And if all this were not enough, the CWL’s now famous Christmas pudding, which sold out in minutes at last year’s bazaar, will be on sale as well. This year the CWL bakers tripled the amount of pudding cooked, so there will be lots more. But given last year’s popularity of this pudding, with its closely guarded secret recipe, you should get there early if you want to get some of the pudding. The doors open at the Holy Spirit Church’s hall open at 9:30 a.m. The Christmas bazaar will also have its popular tea room back again this year. And there will be an expanded bake table. Proceeds from this bazaar will go to the Holy Spirit CWL and the charities that it supports. The Christmas bazaar will be held on Saturday, Nov. 19 from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Holy Spirit Parish hall on Shea Road in Stittsville, just south of Abbott Street.

Garbage Police. Classroom Green Reps. ECOChallenges. Boomerang lunches. These are some of the environmental initiatives going on at St. Stephen Catholic School in Stittsville. So it is no wonder that the school has received a Certificate of Recognition for its participation in the city of Ottawa’s green bin composting program and a Silver Level ECO-School Award. This year the school is going for gold in the ECOSchool Award program, as announced by principal Mary Anne Cowan at the school’s recent kick-off assembly for Waste Reduction Week. Students Courtney Albert and Abby Lavigne served as MC’s for the assembly which had city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri in attendance.

Waste reduction involves producing less waste. This involves checking that garbage goes into the correct bins – blue bin, green bin, black bin and paper bin. This is where the Garbage Police come in. They are selected students who check to make sure that the proper items are going into the right bins in each class. It is the Classroom Green Reps who are tasked with reminding their fellow students about placing the correct items in the proper bins. The school also does audits to check if everything in the trash belongs in there or should go in one of the bins. The more that can be recycled or composted, the smaller the amount of trash that has to be collected. St. Stephen Catholic School is an ECO-School, namely a school that is committed to the environment and has gone through a process to be certified as

such. It involves more than just reducing, reusing and recycling. Students learn about the environment and environmental practices such as composting or turning out the lights to reduce the use of electricity are encouraged. The goal is for students to become environmentally responsible citizens in society. The school has implemented ECO-Challenges. Classes who work hard at their recycling and composting initiatives get tokens. If they accumulate enough tokens, they are rewarded for their work. The classes at St. Stephen have been challenged to design a class logo and to come up with a team name such as Earth Protectors or Environmental Specialists to use in tracking the ECOChallenges throughout the year. And as for boomerang lunches, they are lunches that are litterless thanks

to reusable containers and water bottles. These containers/bottles return home, just like a boomerang comes back. City of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri was at the assembly to present a Certificate of Recognition from the city of Ottawa for the school’s participation in the green bin program. St. Stephen was one of the pilot schools in this program. Thanks to being involved with the green bin program and other recycling initiatives, garbage at St. Stephen Catholic School dropped from 15 bags a week to two bags. This year the figure is down to one and a half bags. The school, which has 445 students and staff as well as youngsters in the Jackson Trails School Age Program, puts six to eight compost bins out every week. Councillor Qadri also presented the school with its silver ECO-Schools Award. This year the school is aiming for gold in this award program. In presenting these awards, councillor Qadri praised the school for its outstanding efforts at reducing waste. “Your dedication and commitment to the environment impacts our community and should be followed by other schools,� councillor Qadri wrote in correspondence presented to principal Cowan. “The students, teachers and administrators at St. Stephen have brought tremendous pride to your school and community,� councillor Qadri added. The school’s slogan has become “Let’s make every day at St. Stephen a green day!�

Tyrone Henry joining Rick Hansen Relay This means that he will be part of the team that will carry the Medal from London to Sault Ste. Marie from Nov. 29 to Dec. 19, using both a handcycle and a wheelchair. Because of this selection and because of Tyrone’s inspiring personal story, the Rick Hansen 25th Anniversary Relay team chose to visit Tyrone’s school for a special rally and presentation – an event which happened on Thursday afternoon, Oct. 27. Due to other commitments, Rick Hansen himself was not able to attend but the Relay team, led by events specialist William Pilon, generated lots of excitement and enthusiasm in the main gymnasium at South Carleton High School in Richmond. There was music playing; Paralympic gold medalist and longtime Canadian sledge hockey team player Herve Lord was there; and not only Tyrone but also South Carleton students Sarah Swafford and Victoria Bass, two Rick Hansen 25th Anniversary Relay Tour participants, were special guests, singled out and honoured for making a difference in their communities. Indeed, it was the first time ever that the whole South Carleton High School community had assembled together in a single venue. The gymnasium rocked on several occasions as emcee William Pilon led the over 1,000 assembled students in an “Anything is Possible” cheer. A video told Rick Hansen’s personal story – how the B.C. youngster at the age of 15, while returning home from a fishing trip, was involved in an accident which left him a paraplegic. But facing his circumstances, he graduated from high school and went on to be the first physically handicapped student to graduate in physical education at the University of British Columbia. He played wheelchair basketball and was a wheelchair marathoner. Inspired by his friend’s Terry Fox Marathon of Hope, he undertook his Man in Motion world tour, spending two years wheelchairing 40,000 kilometers around the world, visiting 34 countries on four continents.

“One of the greatest accomplishments in the history of mankind,” is how William Pilon described this Man in Motion tour to the SCHS students. It raised ten million dollars for spinal cord research but also raised awareness of the need for an inclusive world that includes the physically handicapped. In addition, the constant message was that everyone can make a difference in their community, that “Anything is Possible.” Rick Hansen has continued to raise money and be involved with increasing awareness of the physically handicapped. The Rick Hansen 25th Anniversary Relay Tour is now underway as a way of inspiring future generations of Canadians to keep making a difference and making Canada a better place for all including the physically disabled. Herve Lord, a longtime member of Canada’s sledge hockey team who had helped carry the Rick Hansen Medal on the Relay through the province of Quebec, not only told the students about his thrill of being involved in the Relay but also formally presented Tyrone Henry with the Rick Hansen Medal. For Tyrone, meeting Herve Lord and sitting together with him on stage in front of his SCHS school community was, as he himself said, “pretty awesome.” That’s because Tyrone’s dream is to become a member of Canada’s sledge hockey team and be a Paralympic gold medal winner as well. “He has been where I want to be,” Tyrone said in reference to Herve Lord and his sledge hockey accomplishments. He also praised Rick Hansen for what he had done in opening up opportunities in life for the physically disabled like himself. He said that a year ago, when a car accident had left him paralysed and in a wheelchair, he would said that it was impossible for him to be spotlighted in a ceremony before his fellow students and to be a member of the Rick Hansen Relay Tour endurance team. But the impossible was happening. “This is my impossible right here,”

Tyrone Henry of Stittsville, a grade 12 student at South Carleton High School in Richmond who will be joining the endurance team of the Rick Hansen 25th Anniversary Relay Tour in late November, is wearing the Rick Hansen Medal as he sits in a hand-cycle, all set to carry the medal 800 metres on the last leg of its journey through Stittsville last Saturday, Oct. 29, running from the McDonald’s Restaurant at Crossing Bridge Square to the Hazeldean Road just west of Carp Road.

he told his fellow students. “What’s yours?” he asked them. And this assembly at his school was only the start of things for Tyrone Henry. That evening, he attended the Ottawa Senators game at Scotiabank Place where he participated in a ceremonial puck drop with Rick Hansen and where he watched the game in the company of Rick Hansen as well as with Herve Lord. Talk about a thrill! And while Tyrone will be involved with the Relay Tour from London to Sault Ste. Marie starting on Nov. 29, he was an active participant right in his hometown of Stittsville last Saturday. Using a hand-cycle, he carried the Rick Hansen Medal 800 metres, leaving from the McDonald’s Restaurant at Crossing Bridge Square and taking it along Carp Road to Hazeldean Road, being the last of the medal bearers in the Stittsville portion of the Relay Tour as the tour motorized convoy then headed west with the medal for activities in Carleton Place. Tyrone received the medal from Barbara Mingie who had carried it the final 250 metres to the McDonald’s Restaurant. At the restaurant, there was a formal passing of the medal to Tyrone, emceed by none other than the colourful Ronald McDonald, the iconic symbol of McDonald’s Restaurants which is one of the major sponsors of the Rick Hansen 25th Anniversary Relay Tour. After receiving the medal in his wheelchair, Tyrone moved outside where he changed to his hand-cycle and at 12:35 p.m. was off behind the Anniversary Tour van, up the Carp Road. A few minutes later, he was finished his 800 metre section of the Relay, his involvement done until Nov. 29 when he rejoins the Relay in London as a member of its endurance team for three weeks. Yes, it was quite a 48 hour stretch for Tyrone Henry – from the 1:30 p.m. beginning of the Rick Hansen 25th Anniversary Relay Tour assembly at his school on Thursday, Oct. 27 to his hand-cycling involvement in the Relay Tour itself on Saturday, Oct. 29, ending just before 12:45 p.m. It will be 48 hours that he will long remember, no doubt. Tyrone Henry, now in grade 12 at South Carleton High School in Richmond, was paralyzed as a result of a car accident last year. However, he returned to school for the second semester of the school year, just three months after the accident. Since then, his positive attitude has made a difference in the lives of his fellow students and other. Despite his physical disability, he has availed himself of many new opportunities such as water skiing, sledge hockey and hand-cycling. Indeed, he has embraced these opportunities as new experiences that would not have come his way if he were not disabled. SCHS principal Trudy Garland says that Tyrone has been an inspiration to everyone at South Carleton. “His positive outlook and determination is a gift that he shares with us every day,” she states.

Rick Hansen’s original Man in Motion tour made the front page of the Oct. 29, 1986 issue of the Stittsville News. He was around the 32,000 kilometer mark of his round-theworld tour in a wheelchair when he passed by Stittsville and through Goulbourn township on his journey across Canada in the late afternoon of Monday, Oct. 27, 1986. The headline in the Stittsville News read “’Man in Motion’ tour passes through Goulbourn.” It was after receptions at both Nepean city hall and the Hazeldean Mall in Kanata where he was greeted by hundreds of school children that Rick Hansen in his wheelchair travelled along Hazeldean Road from Glen Cairn past Stittsville to the intersection of Hazeldean Road with highway seven which he then followed on his way to Carleton Place. The article recounts the day as follows: “It was a foggy, misty afternoon for the journey. Rick

had left the Hazeldean Mall a little late, about 4:10 p.m. after a rest period following his welcome there. He passed by Victor’s Restaurant at the Mr. Gas bar on the Hazeldean Road about 4:50 p.m. There were onlookers along the Hazeldean Road to see Rick Hansen and cheer him on as he passed through Goulbourn township.” The Man in Motion tour was Rick Hansen’s way of increasing the awareness of people about the capabilities of the disabled and to raise money for spinal cord research. Last Friday, Oct. 28, 2011, almost 25 years to the day when the original Man in Motion tour passed by Stittsville, the Rick Hansen 25th Anniversary Tour Relay travelled along the same stretch of Hazeldean Road from Kanata to Stittsville, at almost the same time. The Relay turned onto Stittsville Main Street from Hazeldean Road and from 4:22 p.m. through to 5 p.m. went from this intersection to the Goulbourn Recreation Complex.

SPECIAL TO THE NEWS Free coffee and home baked sweets are in store for any seniors who attend the next “Wise Guys and Gals Drop-In” at the Community Bible Church on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville. This drop-in, open to all seniors in the community, will run from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Besides the coffee and sweets, there will be a guest speaker who will tell about the Stittsville Food Bank.

38th Annual Craft

Christmas Gift Sale Nepean Sportsplex 1701 Woodroffe Ave

There’s the old saying “Charity begins at home.� The South Carleton High School bands took this saying to heart this year with proceeds raised by a band-a-thon at the school in Richmond last Friday, Oct. 28 going not to a charity as has been traditional but rather to the school’s music department. This is because of financial pressures impacting the music department such as budget cutbacks and changes that mean that the school can no longer charge students for the use of instruments. However, SCHS music teacher Sarah Woods says that the bands may stage another band-a-thon in the spring to raise funds for charity. In this band-a-thon, students began playing at 11 a.m. and continued throughout the day and into the evening. A massed band consisting of both the junior and senior bands starts off the band-a-thon and then winds it up late in the evening.

In between, various groups play, ensuring continual music. And while some play music, the other students keep busy with other activities such as floor hockey and badminton, a Wii game and movies. There is some fundraising competition between the junior and senior bands in the band-a-thon. The band which raises the lesser amount of money must play in the session immediately before the massed band wrap up. This means that the band ends up playing for an hour and a half straight. Such continuous playing is tough on the mouth and face muscles. Students from the SCHS music department, under the leadership of student Drew Yorke-Slader, raised over $4,000 by participating in the recent CIBC Run for the Cure for breast cancer research and awareness. Although it was a cold, blustery morning, this team of students, joined by six parents and SCHS music teacher Sarah Woods, was out in force to support this worthwhile charitable cause.

And so while there, they did look around, learning about the city of Ottawa’s recycling programs and about its water conservation initiatives including encouragement of low flow toilet installations.

member Judy Hennigar-Brunton as she explained to them about the working low flow toilet that was on display at the Fair. It even had buttons atop its tank allowing for a low flow flush or a higher flow flush. Mr. Chatigny and Clare were at the arena in Stittsville for a ringette session in which Clare was an instructor for younger players. Clare, who plays for the West Ottawa Wild, has been playing ringette for eight years. Among others who enjoyed the breakfast and the Waste and Recycling Fair were parent John Foster and his two young sons, two year old Andrew and four year old James. Even those who were at the Waste and Recycling Fair for participatory reasons took time out for some pancakes. Cathy Ruta and Kannan Pagalam, who were there with a Bag To Earth display, enjoyed some pancakes. Bag To Earth is a Canadian product which is manufactured in Napanee. A totally recyclable product including an interior cellulose lining (developed in Canada), Bag to Earth products, which are odour and leak proof, can be used for food waste destined for the green bin. Using the Bag to Earth product keeps the green bin itself clean. But there was more to the Waste and Recycling Fair than just the Bag To Earth display, the low flow toilet exhibit or the free pancakes (as well as free coffee from Tim Hortons). Green was certainly the colour of the day as all of the city staff present, including local city councillors Shad Qadri and Scott Moffatt, were wearing green T-shirts – all part of Team Green. This even included Duncan Weir, the city’s manager responsible for the city’s waste management programs. There was a children’s art table as well as information tables involving display boards dealing with various areas of the house – laundry room, garage and bathroom. There were green bins, blue boxes and black boxes on display as well as information about city water management programs such as the ongoing blue dot toilet leakage program and the low flow toilet initiative. And while all of this was interesting and appealing, what the primary purpose of the Waste and Recycling Fair was was to give members of the public an opportunity to learn about waste management issues and to provide input into the city’s proposed new 30 year waste management plan. Copies of this draft plan were available for perusal on tables set up in the hall. The draft plan makes it clear that the

city’s population is expected to grow over the next 30 years and with more people, there will be more waste generated. Current estimates are that the city’s existing landfill capacity will be used up by the year 2035. As a result, short, mid and long term options to deal with waste management in the city must be developed. The document noted that 45 percent of residential waste in the city is still being landfilled. The draft plan states that preventing waste should be the first priority for the city. Landfilling should be the last. It was pointed out that in the year 2010, the city generated revenue of $8.4 million from its blue and black box recycling programs. The draft plan suggests targets for waste generation for the city in the future. As present, the city generates 360 kilograms of waste per capita per year. By the year 2042, the goal is for this figure to be 300 kilograms of waste per capita per year. Draft goals for the 30 year plan include generating less waste, optimizing waste diversion, ensuring reliable, safe and affordable municipal waste services, ensuring a high degree of satisfaction in the city’s waste management services, optimizing financial accountability, cultivating further provincial leadership in waste management and doing regular assessments and reports on the city’s waste programs and services. Those at the Waste and Recycling Fair also had the opportunity to fill out a recycling quiz for a chance to win a door prize. The quiz asked where items such as cardboard egg cartons, empty aerosol cans and empty household bottles should be placed – black box, blue box, green bin or garbage. Another question dealt with whether products such as soiled aluminum pie plates, waxed paper, soiled cardboard and meat belonged in the green bin or not. This Waste and Recycling Fair in Stittsville was one of four such events hosted by the city of Ottawa, taking place over two weekends in various parts of the city including Orleans, Barrhaven and south Ottawa. Members of the public had the opportunity to fill out a questionnaire on the future of managing city waste at these Waste and Recycling Fairs. The questionnaire is also available online at ottawa. ca/talkwaste. Input will help define the vision, goals and targets of the city’s 30 year waste plan and to establish priorities for waste management for the city. A report is to be tabled at the Nov. 15 meeting of city council’s environment committee outlining findings based on feedback from the community.

A little offense when it mattered most meant the Sacred Heart High School Huskies are going into the high school junior football league playoffs on a winning note. The Huskies defeated the visiting Longfields Davidson Heights Secondary School Ravens squad 13-0 at Sacred Heart in Stittsville last Friday, Oct. 28, overcoming chilly, windy conditions for the victory. It was a scoreless battle through three quarters of the game, with both teams seesawing back and forth in the middle of the field and neither making much headway. It all changed early in the fourth quarter when a third down punt by the Longfields Davidson Heights team went awry, with the snap sailing over the punter’s head. Sacred Heart ended up with

the ball on the Longfields 20 yard line and a couple of plays later, Jacob Collins carried the ball over the line for the game’s first touchdown and a 6-0 lead for the Huskies. The convert was blocked. It stayed this way until about three minutes left in the game when the Huskies mounted an offense drive, pushing the ball down the field and scoring another touchdown with only 39 seconds left in the game. Fullback Nick Ieradi talled the touchdown and this time the concert was good, giving the Huskies a 13-0 victory. Huskies head coach Curtis MacNeil praised this final scoring drive, noting that it ate up a lot of the clock as well as providing some insurance points for the Huskies.

explode for a big run and score a touchdown for the visitors. A successful concert would have then given Longfields the lead. Coach MacNeil praised his team’s defensive squad, saying that the Husky defense is playing well right now and keeping the team in the game until the offense can get going. “When we needed to, the defense held all game but especially in the fourth quarter,” coach MacNeil said. The Huskies now take on the St. Peter High School Knights in the opening round of the playoffs. St. Peter finished in second place with a record of three wins and only one loss, including a 200 win over Sacred Heart. The Huskies finished the regular season with two wins and two losses, good for third place in the league. The Huskies scored 49 points in the season while allowing 49 points to the opposition.

Cake walk with Halloween flavour JOHN CURRY

It was a cake walk with a definite Halloween flavour. But that should come as no surprise because this Goulbourn Middle School fundraising cake walk happened on Friday, Oct. 28, just three days before Halloween itself. With over 50 cakes set up on tables in the school’s gym, including several on an allergy sensitive table where all ingredients used were listed with the entry, there was plenty of choice for the students who had an opportunity to look at all of the entries before placing their tickets with their favourites in the hopes of winning and getting to take the cake home. Tickets were sold for 25 cents each or five for one dollar.

Halloween colours – orange and black – prevailed in many of the cakes and cupcakes in the cake walk And Halloween symbols and themes were everywhere. Mitchell Kehler’s cake featured a flashing skeleton. There were cakes with pumpkin faces, cupcakes featuring a witch’s hat and a harvest moon, a cake with a black spider on its brown icing, a green cake featuring a ghoul, a cake in the shape of a witch’s hat, a cake with a graveyard scene complete with skeletons, a spider’s web cake, a cake with RIP grave markers, a cake featuring a massive skeleton hand and cupcakes with spiders lurking in their orange and black frosting. There were prizes for the best decorated cakes but the cakes had to be totally student made to be eligible.

Thursday, Sept. 29 was WOW Day at the Ottawa Waldorf School in Stittsville. We are not referring to the awesome lineup of activities happening at the school that day, although this did take place, but rather to a worldwide initiative involving Waldorf students and teachers that is know as WOW Day. WOW in this context stands for Waldorf One World in which Waldorf schools support Waldorf initiatives in dozens of communities in Africa, South America, Eastern Europe, Asia and the Middle East. It has been since 1994 that Waldorf One World has coordinated WOW Day, raising funds for schools in developing countries. Since 1994, more than $2,000,000 has been raised through WOW Day activities. Last year nearly 150 Waldorf schools raised more than $400,000 for 40 Waldorf initiatives in 20 countries around the world. This year the Ottawa Waldorf School was one of only two schools in Canada to participate in WOW Day. Funds raised were being directed to a

Waldorf school in the Peruvian Amazon area. All this happened on Thursday, Sept. 29 which is Michaelmas Day, the feast day of Saint Michael the Archangel, an event that is associated with the beginning of autumn. There was an autumn flavour to the WOW Day activities at the Ottawa Waldorf School and, specifically, the flavour was apples. The day before, students visited a local orchard and collected almost 20 bushels of apples, providing plenty of product for the apple sauce, apple pies and other apple treats which students made throughout the morning. These treats were then sold at the end of the school day, raising funds for the school’s WOW Day project. The day did not begin, though, with the apple activities. It began with a performance of a Michaelmas play, watched by about 30 parents. This Michaelmas play told the story of a king and his princess daughter and the farmers of the kingdom who were terrorized by a dragon. Eventually the dragon was overcome thanks to the sword of St. Michael. Following the presentation of this

play, students returned to their classrooms to make their apple treats. In the case of the kindergarten students, they spent their morning cooking dragon bread (freshly baked bread in the form of a dragon) and then enjoying some of it. WOW Day at the Ottawa Waldorf School after lunch saw an afternoon of games called the Courage Games. Held outside in the school’s playground area, these games saw the students divided up into four teams, appropriately named the Eagles, Badgers, Bears and Lions. The games included tossing a water balloon from student to student in a circle; a chasing game where students tried to grab a clothespin attached on the backside of a fellow student’s clothing; a team race in which students gathered up pumpkin seeds from a pumpkin and then placed them in a container in a can of ice cold water; and a final game of tug of war. It was then time to get ready for the sale of apple treats to parents and guests at the conclusion of the school day. Yes, indeed, it was one “WOW” of a day at the Ottawa Waldorf School.

face of the late Andy Dunlop, the longtime president of the Wydlewood Homeowners Association, who lobbied long and hard for such traffic signals at this intersection, going back more than two decades. In any case, the traffic volume warrants to justify traffic signals at this intersection has now been met and the installation should go ahead. It is expected that the installation will take place in late spring or early summer…An armchair travel program led by Gurt Lemke with the theme “Escape to Hawaii” will be held at the Stittsville branch of the Ottawa Public Library on Wednesday, Nov. 16. The program is free but registration is required. It can be done online at the Ottawa Public Library website or in person at the Stittsville library branch…Brianna Delaney of Stittsville scored the game winning goal and added an assist at the Robert Morris University Colonials defeated St. Cloud State in Minnesota by a 3-1 count last Saturday. This was Brianna’s 26th multi-point game of her career at Robert Morris. Her sister Cobina earned an assist in the game. Both Brianna and Cobina are graduates of Sacred Heart High School…Richard Langford, manager of the Royal Bank in Stittsville, was in the Halloween spirit at the branch last Monday, Oct. 31, as he was wearing a spooky tie…

Parade of Lights SPECIAL TO THE NEWS It’s less than a month away – Stittsville’s brightest community event. We are talking about the annual Christmas Parade of Lights which will happen this year on Saturday, Nov. 26. So mark it down on your calendar now – you won’t want to miss it as it annually attracts thousands who line Stittsville Main Street to see the brightly-lit floats with their Christmas lights and decorations pass by. This year the start time has been set for 7 p.m. And, of course, the parade is followed immediately by the turning on of the Christmas lights at Village Square Park at the corner of Stittsville Main Street and Abbott Street. It’s quite a awesome spectacle when the thousands of Christmas lights suddenly light up the park. But before all of this can happen, there are two important things which must

happen. First, businesses, organizations, churches, groups, even individuals have to start planning their floats for the parade. It is the floats, both in number and in spectacle, that really makes the parade. Floats can just show up the evening of the parade but the Stittsville Village Association (SVA), which organizes this annual event, does like to know which floats are coming. So, if you are planning to enter a float in the parade, just contact SVA president Marilyn Jenkins at to let her know that you and your float will be there. There is no entry fee – everyone is welcome to participate. Also essential for a successful Parade of Lights are volunteers to look after the barricades set up to keep traffic from the side streets off Stittsville Main Street for the parade. These volunteers will be

on duty at their assigned spots along the route from 6:15 p.m. to about 7:45 p.m. when the parade has passed by. Volunteers are provided with safety vests for their protection. In addition, these volunteers end up with some of the “best seats in the house,” as it were, because they are right there beside Stittsville Main Street with a great view of the floats passing by. Whole families can volunteer for a spot so that they can watch the parade together. But these volunteers are vital because if the barricades for traffic control are not looked after by volunteers, quite simply there will be no parade – it is that simple. So these volunteers are vital. If you would like to help out in this regard and be a barricade volunteer, please call SVA president Marilyn Jenkins at 613-836-5075 or via email at jenkinsdm1@ R0021162120

….Another suspicious fire but more of the mischief variety than property damaging happened in the early morning hours of Wednesday, Oct. 26 in Stittsville. Firefighters were called to a fire in the area of Hobin Street and Pullman Avenue as a small amount of garage put out for collection had been set on fire. It was quickly extinguished. The Ottawa Police Service arson unit is investigating the incident. Anyone with information should contact the arson unit at 613-236-1222 or Crime Stoppers at 613233-8477 (TIPS)…Repaving of Beverly Street and Jonathan Pack Street is included in the city of Ottawa’s draft budget for 2012. Other Stittsville area roads slated for repaving are Huntmar Drive from Maple Grove Road to Palladium Drive, Rothbourne Road from highway 7 to Lloydalex Crescent and three streets in the industrial park off Carp Road – Westbrook Road from Walgreen Road to Carp Road, Willowlea Road from Moonstone Road to Westbrook Road and Walgreen Road from Walgreen Road East to Moonstone Road. Also included in the draft budget is $40,000 for work at Coyote Run Park in Stittsville…The installation of traffic signals at the intersection of Stittsville Main Street and Wintergreen Drive/Mulkins Street would certainly bring a smile to the

Here comes Christmas in Richmond SPECIAL TO THE NEWS As the Christmas season comes closer, so too do the pre-Christmas events in Richmond. The annual winter street banner design contest for youngsters is coming up. This contest results in a variety of winning entries that are then painted on the banner that are hung up along McBean Street and Perth Street for the winter. This year the contest began on Tuesday, Nov. 1 and runs through to Thursday, Nov. 17. Entry forms will be available at King’s valu-mart at the Richmond Plaza and on the Richmond Village Association web-

site. Completed entry forms are to be dropped off at King’s valumart before 4 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 17. These entries will then be judged, with the winning designs then being painted on this year’s banners. These banners with the winning designs will be unveiled at the annual Lighting of the Park ceremony which will be held on Saturday, Dec. 3 at 6 p.m. at Memorial Park in the heart of Richmond. Besides the formal unveiling of this year’s street banners, the Lighting of the Park event will include a carol singalong, hot chocolate and cookies, an

appearance by Santa Claus and the turning on of the Christmas lights at Memorial Park. Saturday, Dec. 3 marks the formal beginning of the Christmas season in Richmond, not only because of the Lighting of the Park ceremony but also because earlier in the day, the annual Santa Claus parade will be held. This parade will begin at 11 a.m., following a route along McBean Street and then along Perth Street to end at the Richmond Plaza. The winter street banner design contest, the Santa Claus parade and the Lighting of the Park ceremony are all organized by the Richmond Village Association.

‘A Christmas Carol’ SPECIAL TO THE NEWS

When it was written in 1843, it proved to be a catalyst to help restore Christmas to being a holiday of merriment and festivity. The transformation of the stingy Ebenezer Scrooge thanks to the intercession of the ghosts of Christmas Past, Christmas Present and Christmas Yet To Be has endured in popularity ever since Charles Dickens first penned it. Indeed, it has become a Christmas tradition of sorts and you can enjoy what has become a
