Sow Good time in Stittsville Even Rick Mercer has taken notice JOHN CURRY

AT BANQUET Two veterans of Afghanistan war speak at Stittsville Legion’s annual Remembrance event. 3

It came oh-so-close to being mentioned on Rick Mercer’s national TV show. At the end of every show, CBC TV personality Rick Mercer always tells about some community event happening in some place across Canada. And this Saturday’s The Sow Good Sale at the Community Bible Church in Stittsville just about made it this week. The organizers of The Sow Good Sale had submitted the event to the TV show and it was even short listed for consideration, making it to the final planning meeting. The draft announcement, submitted by the church thanks to local comedian Tammy Welin, used a play on words, emphasizing the word “So.” Here’s what the pitch sounded like: See ‘THE SOW GOOD SALE’, page 4

“CocoMutts.” It’s a crazy name for what owner Chantal Taylor calls her “crazy little dog store.” And when she thought of the name, she realized the connection that could be made – ‘loco,’ a slang word for crazy, which is similar to ‘coco.’ Hence CocoMutts, a crazy little dog store. But CocoMutts has a lot going for it – there’s nothing crazy in how Chantal Taylor has developed the concept for her store which opened just recently at the Stitt Corners Shopping Plaza (Sobeys Plaza) at Carp Road and Hazeldean Road in Stittsville. She proclaims it to be a place where humans and their canine sidekicks can come to shop and relax in a fun, dog friendly atmosphere. And that’s just what happens. Indeed, her own little French bulldog mix Gabee can be found with her there at the store. A true dog lover, Chantal also has two other dogs, both golden retrievers. So you know that Chantal is a dog lover. She also is a skilled dog groomer as is Kim Mather, the other dog groomer/stylist who works at CocoMutts. Together they provide a full service grooming service at CocoMutts. But CocoMutts is more than just a full service grooming salon. Its display area includes premium dog foods, dog treats, designer collars, dog outerwear, designer dog beds, dog coats and sweaters, leashes and collars and more. The store’s setup, layout and offerings are all Chantal’s own concept; it is unique and not part of any franchise. “This is all me,” she says in explaining the layout of the store. A resident of Richmond, she thinks that her location in the Sobeys plaza is an ideal location serving the ever expanding Stittsville and Kanata areas. “There’s a lot of dogs out here,” she says, noting that CocoMutts is near the Carp Road Animal Hospital as well as close to nearby parks where dogs can play. “It’s a great location,” she says. “I love Stittsville.” Chantal says that future plans include helping out charitable organizations which rescue dogs and also holding social nights at the store where owners can bring their dogs for a playtime together. “The dogs are always welcome in the store,” she says. CocoMutts is open seven days a week: 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. from Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday. The phone number to book salon appointments is 613-831-1828.

The war in Afghanistan with the sacrifices made and dangers endured by Canadian soldiers there was a focus of last Saturday’s Remembrance banquet at the Stittsville Legion in Stittsville. “As the Afghanistan war winds down, our focus tonight will be on that war where 158 of our soldiers have paid the ultimate sacrifice,� banquet MC Clive Morris said in his remarks. He said that the sacrifices made by these soldiers in Afghanistan must be added to the traditional Remembrance of those Canadian and Allied veterans who through the years were prepared to sacrifice their lives to preserve the freedom that Canadians cherish. And this focus on the war in Afghanistan was emphasized as both guest speakers at the banquet served in Afghanistan. Lieutenant-Colonel Alain Quirion, who joined the Air Force in 1980 as an aerospace engineer, was deployed for six months in August 2006 to the International Security and Assistance

Force headquarters in Kabul in Afghanistan, serving as the military assistant to the deputy air commander. Lieutenant-Colonel Quirion is currently the project manager for the CF 188 modernization. The other guest speaker was Master Warrant Officer Leo Comeau, who spent four years at Canadian Forces Station Carp starting in 1990 and was deployed to Bosnia in 1999. He was first deployed to Afghanistan in July 2001. After a deployment to the Golan Heights in Israel in 2003, he was once again deployed to Afghanistan in 2006. In 2010, he was again deployed to Afghanistan, serving at Kandahar Airfield. His wife, Master Corporal Janice Comeau, has also seen service in Afghanistan. A Stittsville resident, he is now posted to Ottawa where he is presently filling a senior logistic appointment with the Canadian Operational Support Command in the Canadian Material Support Group.

“If you’re in O-Town this Saturday, why not swing over to The Sow Good Sale at the Community Bible Church? There are SO many things to buy including hats, jewellery and hooded baby bath towels. There’s alSO a café where you can have lunch and homemade baked goods. And just SO the cantankerous kids don’t get bored, there’s a Christmas shopping area just for them. All profits are going to help the village of Seje in Kenya, Africa. This is SO not your granny’s church bazaar! The Sow Good Sale is SO good you can taste it! But spell it with a “w” or you just won’t be finding it on google.” This Sow Good Sale, which bills itself as “Not Your Granny’s Church Bazaar,” is being held this Saturday, Nov. 12 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Community Bible Church at 1600 Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville. It has been planned as a fresh take on the traditional church bazaar. Featured at this free admission event will be one-of-a-kind knit and sewn items such as knit hats, scarves and mitts. There will be jewellery, hand-crafted items for babies and children and hand-made Christmas stockings and decorations. There will be great stocking stuffers available. There will also be recycled items such as books and even jewellery. There will also be gourmet food items and home-baked goods. Go online at and click on The Sow Good Sale logo for photographic sneak peeks at some of the items that will be at the sale. In addition, there will be a kids-only shopping zone for those ten and younger where they can shop for their parents for Christmas, with gifts costing only one or two dollars each. It will be supervised so that parents can shop for hand-crafted items or enjoy the on-site café while their children are shopping. This on-site sit-down café will offer tea, coffee and home made food, both snacks and something more substantial if wanted. Payments for purchases at The Sow Good Sale will be able to be made in cash, by cheque or by Visa or MasterCard. All of the profits from this event will be going to support new endeavours such as water

and a school of the people of Seje in Kenya in Africa. Seje is a group of five villages on the equator in a remote part of Kenya. A poor but vibrant community of about 5,000 people under the leadership of a Community Based organization, the local economy and the health of the people suffer during drought years since local agriculture is the primary source of income and nutrition. Based on a model developed by Trinity Bible Church in Osgoode, the CommunityBible Church is developing a partnership with two Seje villages and their 1,500 residents. The Community Bible Church is working with the Community Based Organization to accomplish the priorities of ready access to safe drinking water, local schooling for local orphans and secure sources of local food. As of this past September, this partnership has been providing two meals a day to 31 children. In January, these same four year olds will start school in a fully funded environment. In addition, under the leadership of the Community Based Organization, several self-sustaining projects are awaiting seed capital to get underway. More about this Seje-Community Bible Church partnership can be discovered on the Community Bible Church’s website at, clicking on “The Seje Project” under the Quick Links section. The Sow Good Sale at the Community Bible Church this Saturday, Nov. 12 is a key part of this partnership and the help that will be given to the Seje community in Kenya. It’s an event where your Christmas shopping needs will be met with the profits going to help meet the needs of the people of Seje in Kenya. It’s a win-win situation. Most people in Seje live with an extended family in compounds comprising two to six huts. These huts have grass or metal roofs with walls constructed of mud and cow dung. The villages being helped have no electricity or any medical clinic. Kenya itself is a democratic republic of 41 million people. While Swahili is the official language, English is generally learned in high school – if children get to go to high school.

Keyboard solo, rousing jig, original songs at coffee house

An enthralling keyboard solo. A rousing, top tapping jig with guitar, fiddle and hand-held drum. Two original songs. And even some whistling. All this plus a variety of songs, most accompanied by guitars, produced one and a half hours of coffee house-style entertainment at South Carleton High School in Richmond on Thursday evening, Nov. 3. It was late in the program, the second last of 26 performances, that saw Hyuksoon Hwang perform his keyboard solo, bringing forth a thunderous applause from the 200 in attendance in the cafetorium at South Carleton. It was the final performance of the first half of the coffee house show that got the audience tapping its collective toes and even breaking into a rhythmic clapping thanks to the robust playing of the Glengarry Jig by the trio of Maggie Monette on the fiddle, Ben Linton on the guitar and teacher Mr. J. McIntyre with a hand-held tambourine-type drum. There was no singing but who needed it with this energetic performance. This Glengarry Jig came right after Jenna McKeown, playing the guitar and singing, had held the audience spellbound as she performed a song that she herself wrote entitled “With You.” She had opened her performance with another song, “Toxic,” from a 2004 album by Britney Spears. Jenna’s was the first of two original songs sung at the coffee House. Later in the program, Jay Maisoneuve sang an original composition “Hard to Heal” as she performed with guitarists Ben Linton and Parker Armstrong. The trio also performed “Blow” and “Hey Ya,” the funk/rock music song written by Andre 3000 and included in his 2003 album “The Love Below.” The whistling in the coffee house show was short-lived and came early in the show – in fact, it happened in the first performance of the evening when Griffin Hann, playing the guitar, sang “The Light is You”, backed up by Andrew Cook on drums. Griffin inserted a brief session of whistling in his performance. Griffin Hann went on to serve as the MC of sorts for the show, introducing some of the performers and ad libbing with a couple of jokes when there was a delay in setting up on stage.

Other performers in the coffee house included Griffin Hann in a trio with Hester Ludwig and drummer Andrew Cook; Griffin Hann on the guitar with singer Emily Fry; and Hester Ludwig playing the guitar as Emily Fry sang “Valerie,” a song covered by singer Amy Winehouse. The guitar playing/singing duo of Amanda McFarlan and Elaine Rose was followed on stage by Jess Blythe who accompanied herself on the guitar as she sung “Gunnin’ for You,” a song by Canadian rock band Hedley. After Alyssa Powell and Hannah McKellar sang “Cross my Heart,” accompanied by Ben Linton on guitar, Mr. McIntyre took over the stage, playing Mr. Brightside, a song by The Killers that was the American rock band’s first top ten hit and a song that he had played at an earlier coffee house several years ago, before winding up with “Human,” another The Killers song that usually features electronics but which he performed just with his guitar and his voice. He was followed by the duo of singer Abby Webster and guitarist Corey Duke, performing the acclaimed song “Rolling in the Deep,” a blues type, gospel, disco tune made famous by English singer/ songwriter Adele. Their performance brought forth loud applause.

The trio of Mike Zani, Liam Anderson and Andrew Cook then took over for two songs, followed by Jenna McKeown. Other performers in the second half of the coffee house show included singer Emma Barr with guitarist Griffin Hann doing “Skinny Love,” the 2008 song by the folk band Bon Iver. “Changing Seasons,” a song from the Bollywood music video of the same name, was played quietly and slowly by Mercedes Kellar, accompanying herself on the guitar. She held the audience spellbound. The program was rounded out by guitarist/singer Graeme Cassels, the duo of Liam Carrie on guitar and singer Laura Porter, Liam Carrie as a solo guitarist, the duo of Matt Chin on the guitar and also vocals along with singer Emily Fry, and the duo of singer Celine Masson and guitarist Parker Armstrong doing the song “Dear Mr. President,” an album song written by American singer/songwriter Pink. Coffee houses have now been held at South Carleton High School in Richmond for the past nine years. Proceeds from this coffee house are going to the school’s Coffee House Scholarship which is presented to a South Carleton graduate who is pursuing studies in the music industry. Again for this coffee house, intermission coffee and goodies were served by the school’s OSAID (Ontario Students Against Impaired Driving) committee.

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

November 7th, 2011

Paul Lindsay Park and Stormwater Information Recently, some concerns have arisen regarding the stormwater pond at Paul Lindsay Park. A beaver has taken up residence in the area; that coupled with beaver activity, would be disastrous for the flow of stormwater in the pond. I have consulted with relevant City staff on this issue, including Dr. Nick Stow, who informs me specifically that the Wildlife Strategy is still in development, but that when it comes forward, he will recommend continuation of the current practice of trapping beaver when their activities threaten critical City flood protection infrastructure. The following is a summary of the current situation and City practices. It is important to note, that this is a stormwater management pond that is critical to residential flood protection in the area. In the many cases each year when nuisance beavers enter these types of ponds, and start activities that jeopardize the important flood protection function these ponds perform, the beavers are trapped and removed. The trapping is necessary and done strictly by licensed trappers. The City has not considered alternative flow devices for stormwater facilities because these facilities typically function based on engineered structures (size of openings, elevations, slopes, etc) which give the facility defined flow-rates and operating capacities. Any alteration of these structures will affect the way facility functions in response to storm events. Also, beaver dams and alternative flow devices would compromise our ability to meet the conditions of our Ministry of the Environment Certificates of Approval and regulations governing stormwater management systems. This type of problem is not restricted solely to Ottawa and that is why we rely upon the guidance of experts and guidelines from the Ministry of Natural Resources when determining how to fix the problem. MNR guidelines and regulations with respect to beavers encourage people not to move them, and say you can’t move them more than one kilometer away from where they are trapped. Experience shows that when beavers are only one kilometer or less away, they return because they are territorial and because there is an overpopulation of beavers in most areas, which is what drove them to the pond in the first place. So because live trapping and moving beavers less than one kilometer away is ineffective, the beavers are trapped in a humane fashion in which they are killed quickly in order to limit suffering. The beaver traps are always placed under the water in areas likely to be frequented by the beaver and not in a location where there is any likelihood for pets or people to enter. The very nature of these sites discourages people and pets. The traps are normally placed after hours and if the Trapper feels that there is any uncertainty with the site, he stays on location while the traps are set. The traps are also quickly removed, usually the next morning, and there is also signage indicating that there is a wildlife control activity underway. This is what is being done in this situation. The City is committed to developing a Wildlife Strategy, but there is nothing that could be included in a wildlife strategy that would eliminate the need to remove beavers from critical stormwater management ponds. The City of Ottawa tries to the greatest extent possible to enhance and preserve the natural benefits of our area. We also strongly encourage animal protection practices to accommodate wildlife in our shared environment. However, in this case the competing priorities – accommodating wildlife and/or maintaining our flood protection system for the area – are in direct conflict with one another. We understand why people would like the beaver to remain or be relocated, but after consulting with the Ministry and examining all relevant regulations and possible solutions, the need to maintain flood protection for homes and businesses must be our main focus and our primary responsibility. Opening of Carp River Bridge I wanted to share some good news with you regarding the Hazeldean Road (Carp River Bridge) project. On Monday October

John Curry photo

31st, two lanes of the new Carp River Bridge (Hazeldean Road) were opened to public use and will now serve as the connector between Stittsville and Kanata. The other two lanes will likely be operational in a week’s time as finishing touches on the surface work need to be completed.

Preparing cabbage rolls at the new Ivan’s European Deli and Specialty Meat Shop on Stittsville Main Street at Manchester Street in Stittsville are, from left to right, Tony Saric, Maria Saric and owner Ivan Saric. Tony and Maria, former longtime Stittsville business owners, have come out of retirement to help their son Ivan with his new business.

This project is the end result of hard work and determination so it was a pleasure to open this bridge this past week. I would like to thank the City engineers, planners and staff as well as Cavangh Construction and Novatech for their continued efforts

Family tradition carries on

If you have any questions regarding the bridge please do not hesitate to contact my office.

Ivan Saric is carrying on a family tradition and he couldn’t be happier about it. It’s all happening right here in Stittsville, at the corner of Stittsville Main Street and Manchester Street where his parents, Maria and Tony Saric, ran a meat and delicatessen shop from 1987 to 2005. A longtime worker in the hotel business, Ivan, now 38, who first worked for his parents at the age of 12 at a meat shop that they operated in Ottawa, has opened Ivan’s European Deli and Specialty Meat Shop in completely refurbished and renovated premises. “The more important thing is doing what I love to do,” he says. “I couldn’t be happier.” And it’s a real family business, as both his mother and father have come out of retirement to help out for several hours a day. And Ivan’s wife, who worked in his parents’ previous shop, will be working at the new business on Saturdays and eventually full time. Ivan has spent the past several months renovating the premises in preparation for the opening of his new business. This included everything from the floor up including re-cladding and adding more insulation to the freezers and installing a larger capacity oven. Ivan, who learned the meat business from his father, has most recently worked in the food and beverage business in the hotel industry in Ottawa but has also worked on cruise ships and at the Prescott Hotel, an Ottawa landmark. But he readily admits that he is ecstatic to be back in the meat business and running his own business. “It’s a passion,” he says about his new business even though it means longer hours and even work on Sundays, a day on which the shop is not open but a day on which food and meat must be prepared for the coming week.

“The days seem to go so fast,” he says about his new business, adding that it is really fun meeting customers whom he remembers from when he worked with his parents in their previous shop. He admits that Stittsville has grown a lot in recent years but says that there are still many old faces coming into the shop, people who, he says, are “almost like a family to us.” And Ivan is not the only one who is happy with his new shop. His mother is glad that Ivan is carrying on the family tradition as is his father Tony who first learned the trade in his native Croatia. He is looking forward to spending several hours a day helping out his son at the new shop while Maria is sharing her tried and true recipes with Ivan, including her renowned cabbage rolls. Ivan says that his new Ivan’s European Deli and Specialty Meat Shop is featuring more fresh ready-made foods that a customer only has to heat and serve. Indeed, Ivan is very interested in buying local ingredients if possible. He says that he will be investigating what is available locally, noting that this means fresher ingredients. Of course, as a European style deli with a Canadian flavour to it, the shop will feature fresh meats as well as specialty foods like cabbage rolls. Made-to-order sandwiches are also available. Ivan has set up a little counter with some chairs that look out a window at Stittsville Main Street and even Village Square Park in the distance. It’s a great place to enjoy one of these made-to-order sandwiches while watching the traffic and pedestrians go by the shop. Ivan is happy with his shop’s new logo, designed courtesy of Stittsville Glass and Signs in Stittsville. Ivan’s European Deli and Specialty Meat Shop is located at 1496 Stittsville Main Street at the corner of Manchester Street, phone 613-435-7679. The shop features deli sandwiches, European cuisine, BBQ specialties and catering.

Stittsville News - NOVEMBER 10 2011




November 11th is a day when we pay homage to and honour all those who have served in the defense of our country and who have fought in wars to defend our way of life. That’s awesome when you think about it. We here in Canada have a marvelous way of life. This entails not only a high standard of living but also the existence of a free society where every person can aspire to his or her own personal goals. We are a free but peace loving and peace abiding society. In both of the World Wars, our soldiers stood up to defend the concepts of freedom and liberty and justice on which our society was based. And they were backed up by a totally support-

ive populace. And then came the Korean War, the peacekeeping efforts in far away places like Cyprus and Gaza, the Cold War postings in Europe, participation in localized wars like Bosnia, major participation in the Afghanistan war and the recent Libyan revolution … it goes on and on. But through it all, Canada and its soldiers have always stood on the side of justice, of democracy, of freedom. That is why, when we honour our soldiers and military on Remembrance Day, we are in effect honouring our way of life, our most basic beliefs in the dignity of the human person and the right to freedom, choice and justice. That’s why Remembrance

Day is so thought provoking and so deeply emotional – it is our biggest mirror on ourselves, on what we are as a nation, on what we strive to be. On Remembrance Day, it is good to stop for a moment and think of all that we have and not only think of how fortunate and lucky we are as a country but also to pause for a moment and realize that we are what we are today only because of the efforts of so many in the past, both in civilian life and in military life. We owe so much to so many. Our best way of remembering and honouring them is to continue to uphold the principles of democracy and freedom on which our country is based. To do otherwise would be a travesty of remembrance.


Our self-serving bureaucracies Somewhere along the way, large organizations begin putting their own interests ahead of the people they serve. It happens everywhere — in private companies, in government, even in the non-profit sector. It’s why everything takes so long and nobody answers the phone. You see it all the time, although you don’t always recognize it. Organizations begin to do things for their own convenience, rather than the convenience of the public. It is most dramatic in government, because government’s only function is to serve the public. The recent kerfuffle over public spaces at Library and Archives Canada is a classic example. For years, several ground floor rooms and a medium-sized auditorium have been rented out to community groups, large and small, at a modest cost. The Library even renovated its auditorium in 1994, to improve its acoustics and make it more comfortable, an apparent sign

CHARLES GORDON of continuing commitment to public programs. Then the Library’s own public programming, including some outstanding musical and literary events, virtually disappeared, presumably for the usual budgetary reasons. Nevertheless, LAC continued to make its rooms available to community groups. A recent news story says that 350 events hosted by 45 different groups will have been held at the Library by years’ end. That could change, if the government does not react to public pressure. LAC announced recently that Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) would take control of the ground floor bookings starting in January. Accord-

ing to the announcement, the government would charge community groups market rental rates (translation: higher) and demand that groups wanting to use the auditorium and meeting rooms get permission from Public Works Minister Rona Ambrose. Some vague security concerns were cited, along with a suggestion that the government might need those rooms for itself because of a shortage of meeting spaces in the capital. Both arguments were greeted with skepticism by the affected groups — the government needs more meeting spaces? Why not go to Bridgehead? Or, better yet, hold fewer meetings. The government has begun backtracking and the final outcome of this particular struggle will take a while. Meanwhile it is useful to consider the words of a spokesperson for LAC, a contender for bureaucratic confusobabble of the year: “LAC is not a department that is specialized in property

management, so it was logical that it be transferred to PWGSC, the department that has both the responsibility and expertise in this area, of which LAC has always been a tenant.” Roughly translated, what this means is that the public was becoming an inconvenience — you know, coming through the door, going into the rooms, sitting on the chairs. Serving the public took a certain amount of effort and it would be much easier if the government just served itself. Serving themselves is what more and more large organizations are doing, both in government and in business. When you go into a big store and can’t find any staff, do you think that was

A five course Chinese dinner for six, personally catered by the Stittsville United Church’s Rev. Grant Dillenbeck right in his home always draws a lot of interest when it comes up for grabs at a church fundraising event. And this year should prove no different when this Chinese dinner catered a la Grant goes under the gavel at a Time, Talent and Treasure Auction being held in conjunction with a spaghetti dinner at the church on Friday, Nov. 18. It is all being held to raise funds for the team of six adults and six youth from Stittsville United Church who are planning to go to Nicaragua during March Break 2012 to work on a community project there.

The spaghetti dinner will be served at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 18 at the Stittsville United Church on Fernbank Road in Stittsville, with the Time, Talent and Treasure Auction following. Tickets for the spaghetti supper will be $15 but there’s a great deal for those under the age of 18 – it’s free. So it promises to be a great – and reasonable – family outing. There will be both silent and live auctions for various items covered by the “Time, Talent and Treasure” label. This is where Rev. Dillenbeck’s famous five course Chinese dinner for six will come up for grabs. For more information or for tickets, please contact Ruth Richardson at 613836-8735 or the Stittsville United Church office at 613-836-4962.

There’s Square/Unsquare by Heather Dubreuil. And Strata by Nancy Garrard. And Moonshadows by Bev Hastings. And what about De by Rita Rottman. And then there’s Layers of Hope #5 by Elena Keen. And Sal in Autumn by Wendy Foster. And that’s the names of

Square? by Susan Lilley. Then there’s Helping Hands by Marie Anzai and Talisman for FIN by Michele Meredith. They are all unique pieces of art done by artists from the Out of the Box arts group, a co-operative association of artists dealing with the world of fibre arts. The display, entitled “Definitely Not A Square,” is on exhibit in the ArtSpace area at the Stittsville library for the month of November. If you find the names intriguing, you will find the art just as arresting – a montage of little squares, a skyscape featuring four different fabrics arranged with a vertical focus, a maple leaf with a salamander on it – it goes on, with each piece deserving of its own inspection and appreciation. The Out of the Box group of artists has a membership which includes machine and hand embroiderers, art quilters, weavers, felters, doll makers, embellishers, silk painters, appraisers, dyers as well as other needle workers and mixed media and fine artists. As a co-op organization, it places strong emphasis on activities that share expertise for the continuing artistic development of all. Members, who have a love of texture, colour and creation, share art techniques, design ideas, artistic processes and inspiration. More about the Out of the Box group of artists can be found at its website at


only some of the 13 fibre art pieces currently displayed on the ArtSpace wall at the Stittsville branch of the Ottawa Public Library. Look the other way and there are ten more pieces in the associated display case, with names just as intriguing. There’s Mermaid’s Lair by Frances Taylor. And Kara’s Treasures Bag by Sharon Johnson.

Stittsville Optometry has expanded. The Stittsville Main Street family eye care business has gone through an expansion and renovation that has seen many of its optometric areas expand. And to celebrate this, a grand re-opening ceremony was held on Friday morning, Nov. 4, with city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri on hand to officially cut the ribbon to mark the occasion. He was joined in this ceremonial task by Stittsville Optometry partners Dr. Corrine Motluk and Dr. Alan Franzmann. The dispensary at Stittsville Optometry has doubled in size, with a wide variety of frames of all types and styles now on display, including designer frames and sunglasses. Stittsville Optometry now has another examination lane as well as a large contact lens room with more space for contact teachings and contact lens storage. This now complements Stittsville Optometry’s pretesting area which includes state-of-the-art technology with both retinal imaging and corneal topography. In his remarks at the ribbon cutting, councillor Qadri congratulated Stittsville Optometry for this expansion of its services to the Stittsville community, while also thanking the business for serving the community for the past 20

years. Stittsville Optometry formerly was sharing its building with an insurance company which relocated elsewhere. Stittsville Optometry began using the vacated space and a decision was subsequently made to formally expand its space footprint. Renovations were carried out by Palapro Construction, creating a more spacious and expanded area for Stittsville Optometry. At the ceremony, Dr. Corrine Motluk of Stittsville Optometry gave special mention to the involvement of staff member Rachel Rose in the project. She helped design the cabinetry and the new office layout. One of the attractions at the grand re-opening ceremony was the appearance of Dr. Alan Franzmann’s new baby boy, Marek, who arrived at the ceremony with Dr. Franzmann who is in the midst of paternity leave from Stittsville Optometry but will soon be returning to work – in these expanded and renovated premises. Stittsville Optometry, which offers complete family eye care, carries quality eyewear and lenses, does contact lens fittings, handles digital retinal photography, does laser surgery co-management, does ophthalmology consults onsite and does orthokeratology fittings.

There is some wartime equipment such as a World War Two army helmet and a World War One grooming kit on display at the Remembrance exhibit set up by the Goulbourn Museum at the Stittsville branch of the Ottawa Public Library. But what really makes the display come alive are a book identifying Goulbourn’s veterans from both World Wars and a binder full of letters written home during World War One by Private Sefton Stewart of Richmond. The display includes a World War Two army helmet donated to the Museum by Betty Moore; a civilian gas mask from World War Two donated to the Museum by Reg Faulkner; a World War One grooming kit including a toothbrush, razor and shaving brush donated to the Museum by Ann McJanet; a World War One non-combat army hat donated to the Museum by Isabelle MacKay; a pair of World War One spurs donated to the Museum by Isabelle MacKay; a German bayonet; World War

Two playing cards; a military writing kit; a metal ammunition kit; and a World War Two RCAF service uniform donated to the Museum by Ken Hartin. The display also includes a display entitled “Goulbourn At War,” starting with the War of 1812 as well as a copy of the poem “In Flanders Fields.” The display includes a 200 page booklet which lists from “A” to “Y” all of the veterans of both World War One and World War Two from Goulbourn township. The descriptions of each veteran identifies the war, what branch of the service, the unit involved and burial location if applicable. The binder with Private Sefton Stewart’s letters from overseas in World War One provides a glimpse of what army life was like and the thoughts that a soldier had about the war and about home. This Remembrance exhibit, which will be at the Stittsville library throughout November, is located in a library shelving unit just beyond the south end of the main circulation desk at the library branch.

Santa coming to trade show JOHN CURRY

We all know that things are hectic at the North Pole these days as Santa Claus and his elves and reindeer prepare for Christmas, now just six weeks away. But, lo and behold, Santa is taking time out from his busy North Pole activities to visit in Stittsville this coming Sunday, Nov. 13. The jolly red-suited gentleman will be visiting at the fundraising trade show at the Stittsville Legion Hall on Stittsville Main Street this Sunday, Nov. 13 from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. This is when the trade show is happening, providing a unique shopping experience thanks to the presence of various retailers dealing in eco-friendly toys, sassy scarves, health and beauty products, women’s clothing, candle warmers, kitchen supplies, and stamping and scrapbooking solutions. This is all being done in support of the Stittsville Ice Pirates minor hockey team. Funds raised from the show will help the

team purchase equipment and participate in tournaments. With Santa on the premises, parents are reminded to bring along their cameras so that they can take a photo of their children with Santa. There is no cost or anything like that – simply snap away and let your youngsters enjoy a chat time with Santa. What could be better? And if having Santa present were not enough, youngsters will also be able to enjoy having their faces painted thanks to the creative artist Lolo. Now that’s a double header treat that’s hard to beat. So, consider visiting this trade show this Sunday, Nov. 13 from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Legion Hall and come away not only with a special gift or two for upcoming Christmas gift giving but also with some happy youngsters who have seen Santa Claus and who have enjoyed some face painting. And, as an added bonus, you will have helped out the youngsters on the Stittsville Ice Pirates hockey team. It just doesn’t get any better than this.

Real Admiral tells about changing role of military JOHN CURRY

As a Rear Admiral, he is a man of the sea. As guest speaker at the Richmond Legion’s Remembrance dinner last Saturday, he showed that he is also a man of the “see” as well. Real Admiral Mark Norman, who is Deputy Commander of the Royal Canadian Navy, presented his views about the changing role of the Canadian military, the changing relationship between the Canadian military and the Canadian people and the changing need for support from Canadians to their military. He said that the world is changing around us today. “We don’t live on an island,”

Real Admiral Norman said, explaining that the world of today is interconnected. He said that in the past no one could have imagined Canada involved in ten years of combat operations in Afghanistan, a country which most Canadians at one time would have difficulty locating on a map. On top of this, Canada was involved in a second combat operation to rid Libya of a leader who had been a problem in that area for decades. He pointed to these situations as examples of the demand which is now growing for the use of the Canadian military and as a result the Canadian Forces have to be ready to meet these demands. “Our job is to be ready to go wherever you need us to go,” he

said. Real Admiral Norman said that the military’s role also includes being ready to serve at home as well, noting that there are 15,000 Canadians in uniform every day standing on guard for the country, be it with NORAD (North American Aerospace Defense Command), in search and rescue, in battling floods and forest fires or in protecting Canada’s shores. A key to this enhanced role of the military is the relationship of the Canadian people with the military over the last decade or so, Real Admiral Norman said. “I’ve never seen a relationship like we have today with the Canadian people,” he said. He praised the work of the Royal Canadian Legion and also

Life - Pain free as it should be.

many Canadians at the grass roots level who have stood up and supported the troops. He said that the troops have really noticed it and that they really needed the support. He said that previously the troops did not wear their military connection as proudly as they do today but now they do thanks to the last decade which has redefined their relationship with the Canadian people. But he also warned that as the public visibility of the Canadian Forces wanes with the pullout from Afghanistan, there is a risk that the view of the military by Canadians may revert back to the attitude of the 1980’s and 1990’s with its feeling that Canada does not need the military, that Canadians don’t talk about them and that the country does not need to spend money on the military. He said a reverting back to such an attitude would be a big mistake for the country and urged everyone to play a role in any public debate that may emerge regarding the military. Real Admiral Norman said that the change of attitude in the last decade has been important because now the government has recognized that a country

has to invest in its armed forces if it wants the military to do things. He noted that Canada is on the cusp of the largest reinvestment in its armed forces since World War Two, given the recent contracts to build ships and the possible purchase of new military planes. In response to a question following his remarks, Rear Admiral Norman said that the recent decision to restore the name “Royal Canadian” to the army, navy and air force has had an enormous impact on the military. “They have grabbed onto this like we never imagined,” he said about the troops. “There is a real palpable sense of enthusiasm about this,” he added. Real Admiral Norman received a standing ovation from the 80 people in attendance at the Remembrance dinner when he completed his remarks and answering questions. Real Admiral Norman’s military career goes back to 1980 when he joined the naval reserve. He was promoted to his current rank of Real Admiral and appointed Deputy Commander Maritime Command/Assistant Chief of Maritime Staff last June.

For over four decades, the building which is now home to Pretty Pots Flowers & Gifts on Stittsville Main Street in downtown Stittsville housed the monetary treasures of Stittsville and area residents as the location of the local branch of the Royal Bank. Now the building is housing treasures of a different sort – treasures hand-made and hand-crafted by local artisans. The work of about 25 local artisans and craftspeople is on display and sale, primarily in the second floor Home Decor and Craft Loft, but there are hand-made treasures exhibited on the first floor as well, such as hand-poured candles made by Karen Fisher in her own kitchen. “People like that one,” Lynn Gillard of Pretty Pots Flowers & Gifts says about this candle display, set up right beside the most visible remnant of the former Royal Bank’s occupancy of the premises, the giant walk in vault that is now used for floral storage. But this is only the tip of a treasuretrove of artisan treasures at Pretty Pots. Ms. Gillard of Pretty Pots had started

her second floor gift area but had found that providing all of the stock herself was costly and she thought that providing a place where artisans could display and sell their wares might be a better use of the space. So she put a notice on her exterior sign, seeking interested artisans and it worked. Artisans started coming in and soon she had the wide range of artisans and their crafts which totally fill two upstairs rooms. She herself still stocks a third upstairs room with gift and décor items. With Christmas approaching, these items currently include such things as Christmas wreaths, a penguin with a hat and scarf and a snowman. Among the artisan treasures that fill the other rooms on the second floor of Pretty Pots are scarves and other wearable art made by Elizabeth Radmore who is also a Stittsville author; blue hand-turned pottery by Elisabeth Allison of Kinburn; baby hair clips and quilts by Kristin Trudeau’s Little Lamb Creations; silk scarves by Coralie Bartley of Richmond; hand-made stained glass; an array of woodturned items such as bowls made of maple or ash or cherry or butternut, wine bottle stoppers, salt and pepper shakers and even wooden pens; knitted mitts and sweaters provided by the Ottawa Waldorf School; quilts for children; hand-decorated Christmas ornaments by Vivienne Spirak of Stittsville who also has some of her one-of-a-kind nature and wildlife paintings on display; Choleena DiTullio’s fish-oriented items such as T-shirts and cards, all featuring fish on them; Suzanne Snook’s pottery from Manotick; artistic and ornamental blacksmithed-iron items such as a wall mounted plate holder and a hand forged iron rose; and jewellery. Ms. Gillard has been amazed at the response that she has received from local artisans to display and sell their wares at her shop. It has led to a varied and unique collection of artisan-made items, all under one roof – one-stop shopping, as it were, just like at a craft fair. While the upstairs craft and gift area is open at all times when the florist shop is open, there is going to be a special open house held for the upstairs area on Saturday, Nov. 19 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Some of the artisans are expected to be in attendance for this special day. This would be a great opportunity to drop into Pretty Pots Flowers & Gifts and take a look at all of these hand-made local craft items. You may just find that unique Christmas gift for that special family member or friend. There is plenty of parking, not only right beside Pretty Pots but also in the nearby municipal parking lot.

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 Christmas tradition across the country by attending a dramatic reading of Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” on Saturday, Nov. 19 at 7 p.m. at St. Paul’s United

Church in Richmond. Dramatic readings of “A Christmas Carol” like this are now presented in over 100 communities across Canada, all raising money for local charities.

Students call the shots at principal’s makeover JOHN CURRY

Students got to call the shots at the principal’s makeover at Munster Elementary School on Friday, Oct. 28. It all came about after principal Iain Slingerland had challenged the students to raise over $200 in the school’s recent Terry Fox Run/Walk. He agreed to take part in a makeover if this challenge was met as indeed it was. So there he was on that Friday morning, appearing before the whole student body as well as a number of parents who attended the assembly. But it was a makeover with a difference, in that it was the students, by their cheering, who determined the course of the makeover. So, first it was Mr. Slingerland’s wardrobe – a dress or a cloak. No contest – the dress won with a big cheer. Next came the accessories – a Hawaiian leis or a pink beaded necklace. The necklace was the choice of the students. And on it went. Mr. Slingerland’s hair – let’s use some gel. His makeup – some rosy blush, some eye shadow and some lip gloss. And don’t forget those hands – purple gloves, no; painted nails, yes. The final touch was Mr. Slingerland’s shoes. Off with those runners; on with a pair of giant red and yellow clown shoes. What a way to cap off a principal’s makeover! Mr. Slingerland was set to remain in his makeover state for the whole school day. He had no meetings planned.

The assembly, while capped off with Mr. Slingerland’s makeover, was held to recognize and honour the students who had participated in the school’s Terry Fox Run as well as those who had competed for the school in the recent cross country meet at the Baxter Conservation Centre at Kars. This was the school’s fifth annual Terry Fox Run and the school received a special “Terry Fox Lives Here” banner proclaiming this achievement. Mr. Slingerland, after his makeover, praised the students for the great job that they had done participating in the Terry Fox Run this year. He also thanked the school community for its generosity. Last year the school had raised just under $200 in its Terry Fox Run. This year the school community met Mr. Slingerland’s challenge and raised over $200. The assembly featured a photo presentation which featured scenes from both the Terry Fox Run and the recent cross country run. The 37 runners from Munster Elementary School who competed in the cross country meet were all introduced individually and presented with a certificate to mark the occasion. Before the students participated in the Terry Fox Run on Wednesday, Sept. 28, they viewed a video which explained the reasons why Terry Fox Runs are held across the country every year. The video explained about the positive characteristics that Terry Fox displayed in his life and in undertaking his Marathon of Hope.

the Sacred Heart High School Huskies. The Huskies travelled to St. Peter High School in Cumberland on Thursday, Nov. 3 to take on the St. Peter Knights in the opening round of the playoffs. With a rainy drizzle happening throughout much of the game, the Huskies fell behind 14-0 by half time. Mitch Hanselwood of the Huskies avoided yet another first half point by the Knights by running a punt out of the Huskies’ end zone just before the half ended. In the third quarter, the Knights struck for two more touchdowns. One came following a drive by the Knights following an interception at mid-field. The second one came

with only 40 seconds left in the quarter when St. Peter’s scored on a 50 yard pass and run play. With the convert, this made it 280 which is how the game ended. The loss ended the Huskies’ season in which the team placed third in the five team junior football league. The Huskies had a regular season record of two wins and two losses, one of which was a 20-0 loss to the St. Peter Knights. The Huskies scored 49 points in the regular season, the same number of points which the team gave up on defense. St. Peter Knights finished the regular season in second place with a record of three wins and one loss.

They went. They played. They conquered. In a dominating performance worthy of the Roman Empire at its height, the Stittsville Rams competitive major bantam team won five straight games, giving up only four goals in total, to emerge as champions at the West Ferris Early Bird Tournament in North Bay on the weekend of Oct. 28-30. The Rams started off the tournament against the West Nipissing Flyers, skating to a 5-1 victory. It was a good beginning to the tournament. The North Bay Trappers were next up on the schedule in the Rams’ second game of the tournament. A nine goal outburst gave the Rams the 9-1 victory.

The Rams showed similar offensive power combined with a strong defense as they defeated the Kirkland Blue Devils 6-1 in their opening round game of the tournament, advancing to the semi-finals. The Rams went up against the Almaguin Ice Devils in this playoff game and came up with a defensive gem, winning by a 6-0 score. This lifted the Rams into the championship final game, facing off against the Iroquois Falls Avalanche, another team that was undefeated so far in the tournament as well. The Rams were awesome as they won by a 10-1 score, completing an undefeated tournament and coming home as tournament champs. The Rams are now preparing for the Rams Mid-Season Showdown that is coming up at the end of November.

The voices of the Goulbourn Male Chorus resonated through the Lions Hall in Stittsville on Saturday evening, Oct. 29. It was the occasion of the 47th annual charter night for the Stittsville District Lions Club, with the Goulbourn Male Chorus under the direction of Robert Dueck providing the musical entertainment for the evening. The group’s offerings even included a singalong featuring the iconic tune “This Land is Your Land,” that famous American folk song first recorded by Woody Guthrie in 1944 which experienced a revival in the 1960’s when it was recorded

by such singers as Bob Dylan, The Kingston Trio, Trini Lopez, The New Christy Minstrels and Peter, Paul and Mary and then later by Bruce Springsteen. Dressed in white shirts and ties with black pants, the 17 men of the Goulbourn Male Chorus both opened and closed their musical offerings with “We’re the men of the Chorus”. In between, they performed a couple of sea shanties, “When I was one and twenty,” a balladlike song, the classic, 1894 song “The Sidewalks of New York” and “Sixteen Tons,” that song about the life of a coal miner which reached number one on the charts in 1955 in a version sung by Tennessee Ernie Ford. Director Robert Dueck used the occa-

sion to publicize the Christmas concert which the Goulbourn Male Chorus will be presenting in Stittsville on Sunday, Dec. 18. Called “Snack, Cider and Song,” this concert will be held on Sunday, Dec. 18 at 4 p.m. at Holy Spirit Catholic Church on Shea Road. Besides the traditional male chorus music presented by the Goulbourn Male Chorus at this concert, there will be guest performances from the Trinity Hilltop Ringers, a handbell group; from the St. Thomas Anglican Church Children’s Choir; and from the Yuletide Ladies’ Chorus, a ladies chorus assembled just for this concert. There will even be a massed choir selection involving all

these vocal groups accompanied by the handbell group. There will also be some audience carol singalongs at the concert. Tickets for this concert will be available at the door at $15 each. Those 16 and under will be admitted free. Advance tickets selling for only $12, a three dollar saving, will be available for purchase at the Gaia Java coffee shop at the Shoppers Drug Mart plaza on Stittsville Main Street starting on Saturday, Nov. 19. Stittsville District Lions Club immediate past president Ken Jones, on behalf of the Lions Club, presented the Goulbourn Male Chorus with an honorarium for their performance.

One woman play coming to Holy Spirit Church JOHN CURRY

She was a Russian baroness exiled from her home country by the communist revolution there. She opened Friendship Houses to serve the poor in Ottawa, Toronto and Harlem in New York City. And she ended up founding Madonna House in Combermere at the invitation of Pope Pius X11. This was the life of Catherine Doherty (1896-1985) and it is a story that will come alive in a 75 minute, one woman play “A Woman in Love” which will be presented at Holy Spirit Catholic Church in Stittsville on Friday evening, Nov. 25. This play, written by Cynthia Donnelly, a member of the Madonna House Community who knew Catherine Doherty personally, tells the story of

the life of Catherine Doherty with its ups and downs of love and loss, failure and triumph, all with a background of unquenchable spirit, quirky humour and fearless advocacy for the poor and powerless. The play will be performed by Anne Kathleen McLaughlin, a member of the Grey Sisters Community of Pembroke. She herself has written and performed several one-person plays. Catherine Doherty, foundress of the Madonna House Community in Combermere, was a Russian baroness who was exiled from her home country by the communist revolution, arriving in Toronto in 1921. She opened Friendship Houses to serve the poor in Ottawa, Toronto and Harlem before settling in Combermere in 1947. In the 1950’s, she was invited by Pope Pius XII to create a

community of men and women that became Madonna House. Now, even 25 years after her death, Madonna House is flourishing. “A Woman in Love” will be presented on Friday, Nov. 25 at 7:30 p.m. at Holy Spirit Catholic Church on Shea Road in Stittsville, with tickets at $10 each available at the parish office (phone 613-836-8881, ext. 0 or email for information about office hours). Tickets are also available from Helen McRae at 613-841-4698 or via email at Helen. Proceeds from the presentation of this one-woman play “A Woman in Love” will go to help cover the cost of the distribution of free copies of Matthew Kelly’s book “Rediscovering Catholicism” at the Christmas masses at Holy Spirit Church.

Scotland will be the theme of the November meeting of the Goulbourn Township Historical Society.

Flu shot clinic in Richmond SPECIAL TO THE NEWS

A free flu shot clinic is coming up at South Carleton High School in Richmond. It is one of the series of 33 free immunization clinics being held by Ottawa Public Health across the city of Ottawa. The clinic at South Carleton will be held on Saturday, Nov. 19 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. However, this clinic at South Carleton will provide the shots by appointment only. Appointments can be booked online through the city of Ottawa website at Influenza or the flu is a serious and contagious respiratory illness caused by a virus that can spread quickly from person to person, either by a cough or sneeze or when someone touches a surface that has been contaminated with the flu virus. Flu symptoms include fever, headaches, muscle aches and pains, extreme fatigue, stuffy nose, dry hacking cough and sore throat. The flu vaccine changes every year because the flu viruses that are circulating change. The World Health Organization selects the three strains that


are included in the vaccine for a flu season. When there is a good match, the vaccine is 70 to 90 percent effective in preventing the flu in healthy adults. For children, the flu vaccine is 80 to 90 percent effective in preventing the flu. This year’s Canadian flu vaccine covers the same three strains as last year: the 2009 H1N1 strain, an influenza A known as H3N2 and an influenza B component. The flu shot is free to anyone six months of age or older who lives in Ontario.

A trailer containing framing and carpentry tools valued around $15,000 was stolen off a home construction site in Richmond recently.

During this process, requests have come forward from some in the community for Waste Management to hold technical sessions on the subjects of air, ground water and property value impacts as related to the proposed new landfill. An air technical session will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 16 at 7 p.m. at Waste Management’s Ottawa office at 254 Westbrook Road off Carp Road. A ground water technical session will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 30 at 7 p.m., also at Waste Management’s Ottawa office on Westbrook Road. As for a property value impact technical session, this will be held soon. Notification of this session will appear on the website for the proposed new landfill and will be given by email to those registered on the project’s contact list. Anyone who wishes to attend any of these technical sessions should contact Cathy Smithe, Waste Management’s community relations manager, by email at to register.


The Ghoul-bourn Spook Show in Stittsville was bigger and better than ever this past Halloween and plans are to make it even bigger and better next year. Every year Ghoul-bourn Spook Show creator Joseph Carbonetto turns his front yard and his garage into a setting for ghouls, zombies, skeletons, grave markers – you name it and if it’s spooky, it is at the Ghoul-bourn Spook Show. This year attendance at the Cherry Drive attraction was up from last year’s 1,500. Just how much is the subject of some estimation because crowds on the Saturday and Sunday evenings were so great that exact estimates proved impossible to make. Let’s just say that hundreds visited each night and Mr. Carbonetto estimates that this year’s total crowd was probably close to 2,000. The Ghoul-bourn Spook Show ran from Saturday, Oct. 29 through Monday, Oct. 31, which was Halloween night. There was great weather for all three nights with no precipitation. At least a ton of food was collected for the Food Bank over the course of the three nights, along with several hundred dollars in cash donations. Actual admission to the Ghoul-bourn Spook Show is free but those attending are urged to donate a non-perishable item to the Food Bank. Cash donations are also accepted. This year there was a hot dog vendor on site on both Sunday and Monday evenings, adding to the attractions. Mr. Carbonetto says that the hot dog vendor will be back again next year. He also says that next year the Ghoul-bourn Spook Show may be extended to four days – the three leading up to Halloween as well as Halloween itself. This would accommodate more visitors and perhaps ease the surge of people who all tend to come between 7 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. on the evenings on which the Ghoul-bourn Spook Show operates. Mr. Carbonetto reports that the fog machine which produced ground-hugging fog for the front yard graveyard worked absolute-

ly fantastically this year. The fog crept along the ground, making it very effective in adding an eerie atmosphere to the site. This year the fog was cooled before being released which was the key to ensure that it stayed close to the ground. Mr. Carbonetto says that he will probably be adding some more props for next year. This might include a couple more larger props inside the garage. He is also thinking about making his dragon functional where it could pop out of a wall, blow smoke and speak. This year the dragon proved to be quite an attraction, even though it was stationery. It is a prop which Mr. Carbonetto acquired from the late Bruce Evely’s Stittsville Haunt but all of its internal workings have to be re-engineered. This is something that Mr. Carbonetto hopes to do for next year’s Ghoulbourn Spook Show. The Ghoul-bourn Spook Show now has over 3500 “friends” on its Facebook page and the number is growing every week. Mr. Carbonetto will be putting up a whole photo gallery of this year’s activities at the Ghoul-bourn Spook Show on the Facebook page. He also will be placing a series of videos on YouTube. Mr. Carbonetto wants to thank all those who helped out in any way in making this year’s Ghoul-bourn Spook Show such a success. These include Todd Brown of Brown’s Your Independent Grocer who provided the ice used in the fog machine; Matt Copeland of ISI Global Webcasting for all his work with the sound and lighting for the Spook Show and for his videography; to Dawson Hebert-Arsenault, Kris Charbonneau and Chris Cotaras for being ghouls during the three days of the Ghoul-bourn Spook Show; to Ryan Collins who dressed up as a zombie on Halloween evening; to Birgit Oelze for taking photographs during all three evenings; to Meia and Erica Copeland who volunteered at the Ghoul-bourn Spook Show for all three evenings; and to Shelley Carbonetto for her patience in putting up with her husband’s Spook Show productions every year.

West Transitway will have more lots, no more spaces JOHN CURRY

More park and ride lots, although not more vehicle capacity, have been added to the proposed future West Transitway through the Kanata West and Fernbank lands. The initial plan back in 2008 called for an 1100 spaces park and ride facility along the West Transitway corridor at the Hazeldean Road. However, the latest plan, as unveiled at a recent public information open house at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex in Stittsville, provides for park and ride lots along the West Transitway corridor at Fernbank Road, the Abbott Street extension and on both the north and south sides of Hazeldean Road. The idea is to have more such park and ride lots, although they will be smaller than the larger one initially proposed

for the Hazeldean Road site. The 1100 spaces will be distributed among the four locations due to the belief that this will best meet ridership needs and will reduce land use impacts from the facilities. This eight kilometer long West Transitway extension will not be happening anytime soon. The Terry Fox Drive to Scotiabank Place section or first phase is scheduled for the year 2020 or so. The second phase, from Scotiabank Place to Fernbank Road, will be built as the development in the Kanata West and Fernbank lands builds out but it is expected that this will not be until the year 2030 or so. This bus rapid transit route will run adjacent to the proposed major north/south arterial road in the Kanata West area. However, through the Fernbank lands, the transitway will run in the median of this north/south

Stittsville Royals SPECIAL TO THE NEWS

It was a close game for the Stittsville Royals against the Metro Division leading Gatineau Mustangs on Friday, Nov. 4 but the Royals had to travel home with a

arterial. The transition from being adjacent to the north/ south arterial to in the median will happen south of Hazeldean Road. This was one of three options that was studied and has been selected because it most closely resembles the land use plans for the Kanata West and Fernbank areas; is considered to provide superior transit service for the long term; will have the least impact on traffic operations at the Hazeldean Road intersection; and allows for phased construction of the project. The overall cost, however, will be higher than if the transition happened in the area between Maple Grove Road and Hazeldean Road or in the area north of Maple Grove Road. Major transitway stations will be located at Fernbank Road, Abbott Street extension and Hazeldean Road in the Fernbank

2-1 loss on their record. Dan Guolla scored for the Royals in this game, with Neill Penner and Scott Barnes earning assists. The Stittsville Royals play this same Gatineau Mustangs squad this Sunday, Nov. 13 at 2:30 p.m. at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex in Stittsville.

lands as well as at Scotiabank Place and Maple Grove Road in the Kanata West lands. A bridge will take the transitway over the Hazeldean Road. All of the other road crossings such as at the Abbott Street extension and Maple Grove Road will be at grade crossings. It is expected that the north/ south arterial will be constructed through the Kanata West and Fernbank lands well before the transitway is actually constructed. This West Transitway extension is meant to extend core transitway routes farther west, to introduce new routes to serve local communities and to reroute express buses to take advantage of this new transitway. Bus routes serving Stittsville will be re-routed to support the new transitway extension, adjusting to new ridership patterns that will develop when the

Eleanor Dowdall, a longtime Goulbourn township staff member, has passed away. For a decade and a half during the 1960’s and early 1970’s, Eleanor Dowdall worked for the municipality of Goulbourn township as the assistant to her husband, Orville Dowdall, who was the township clerk. The township’s only full time administration staff at the time, they worked in the cement block building at Stanley’s Corners which is now the home of the Goulbourn Museum History Centre. In consultation with a part-time building inspector, Eleanor did all of the clerical work such as issuing building permits. She also worked with the part-time bylaw officer. During the time of Eleanor and Orville Dowdall with Goulbourn township, they worked with developers Jack Johannsen in Munster Hamlet and William Connelly in Glen Cairn to develop these two communities. The respect with which the Dowdalls were held is shown by the fact that Ottawa legend Charlotte Whitton interview Orville on her TV program about municipal affairs on CJOH. This indicates the respect with which the Dowdalls were held by their peers for operating a small municipality like Goulbourn in an effective way. The Dowdalls provided the administrative expertise to begin to move Goulbourn from a rural to a suburban municipality. They both left the township’s employ in the early 1970’s, prior to the amalgamation of rural Goulbourn with the villages of Stittsville and Richmond in 1974. Orville moved to the Regional Municipality of Ottawa-Carleton, working in the department dealing with water and sewer infrastructure. Eleanor went to work for the Sweetnam family company, Relocatable Homes Ltd. of Fringewood, where she stayed for over a decade. Eleanor was considered an extremely loyal employee at Relocatable Homes with a good instinct about who were the competent business associates with whom the company could work. This characteristic, together with her other skills and previous municipal experience, were invaluable as Relocatable Homes developed its Fringewood South subdivision. As a tribute to the contributions which Orville and Eleanor Dowdall made to the community and to Relocatable Homes Ltd. and the development of the Sweetnam family holdings in Stittsville, a street – Dowdall Crescent – was named after them in the Fringewood South subdivision.

Input received to date about this west transitway extension have focused on the alignment and location of park and ride lots, timing of the project, impacts on adjacent properties and communities and changes in current bus operations. Input received from the public as a result of this Oct. 13 open house in Stittsville and other open houses will be reviewed along with input received from the three consultation groups that are involved with the project: the technical consultation group, the business consultation group and the public consultation group. This will all lead to an Environmental Assessment Report which will be reviewed by the federal and provincial governments, affected stakeholders and the public.

Warriors in championship games The Warriors had built up a 21-14 half time lead in this ACup championship game thanks to touchdowns by Steven Hanzidiakou, Josh Nwaelleh and Craig Dawe. But no scoring by the Warriors in the second half led to the ultimate 28-21 victory for the Myers Riders. It was a different story for the Bell Warriors mosquitos (ages 11-12) in their championship match on Saturday, Nov. 5. Also playing the Myers Riders, the Bell Warriors mosquitos under head coach Jon Ferguson captured a hard earned victory. The lead changed hands a number of times in the game, with the Riders scoring a late touchdown to tie the game. But the Warriors, under the leadership of quarterback Joshua Streng and with the running of tailback Sam Roberts, came back to seal the deal and win the championship. Sam Roberts was named as the Warriors MVP for the game. A number of Bell Warriors pee wee and bantam players (ages 15-16) will be playing in the league’s all-star games this coming weekend.

What a way to end the season – an annual general meeting, presentation of awards, silent auction and dinner at the Cole Family Celebration Centre at 6400 Hazeldean Road. It all took place on Tuesday, Oct. 11, with Club president George Burns-Nichol presiding over the annual general meeting. The plaques honouring the singles champions for the past season went to Teresa Derouin for the ladies and Robert Swift for the men. The trio of Joe Hubenig, Robert Swift and Teresa Derouin won the trophy for mixed triples. A silent auction added interest to the evening as well as some fun. Financially the 2011 season was successful, with the Club realizing a net profit on its total revenues of $14,716.70 which included membership fees of over $6,000. Expenses incurred dur-

ing the season included greens upkeep, repair and maintenance of equipment, administration, various fees and refreshments. The Goulbourn Lawn Bowling Club, which was formed and started in Richmond on a temporary green, moved to its present location beside the former Goulbourn municipal building at Stanley’s Corners in 1998. Bowling takes place during the season on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings as well as on Tuesday evenings and in invitational and club tournaments. The morning games always end with coffee, tea and refreshments. New members are most welcome, with coaching provided as required. In addition, the Club will loan a set of bowls to newcomers so that they can try out the game. For more information about the Goulbourn Lawn Bowling Club, please contact the president George Burns-Nichol at 613831-0939 or via email at gjbn@

An undefeated season for the first time in Bell Warriors football history at the pee wee level. Winning the Western Conference championship. Being led by a core of seven returning veteran players. A stingy defense that allowed the least points against during the regular season. And a potent offense that averaged more than 40 points a game. It all seemed pointing to a likely victory for the Bell Warriors pee wees in the National Capital Amateur Football Association A-Cup peewee championship game on Sunday, Nov. 6. And a 21-14 lead at half time against the Myers Riders seemed to give credence to this notion. But in sports, nothing is certain and a second half that included three turnovers and a penalty that wiped out a 45 yard gain for the Bell Warriors while facing an opponent that controlled both the clock and field position meant that the championship ended up going to the Myers Riders by a 28-21 score. The Bell Warriors pee wees (ages 13-14) went into this ACup championship game after a

year of many firsts for the team. Aside from becoming the first Warriors pee wee team to go undefeated in the regular season, it was done with only seven returning veteran players who formed the heart of the Western Conference championship winning team. “We had a very small core of vets this year but they were exceptional athletes,” head coach Paul Stewart said. These included running back Steven Hanzidiakou who developed into one of the best running backs in the league. Offensive lineman Andrew Akinniyi and slotback Josh Nwaelleh were both considered tops in their positions while quarterback Quinn Stewart of Richmond is as good as any quarterback in the league. The Warriors had only three returning players on the defense – defensive lineman Sam Dulmage, Tremayne Rockburn and Khalid Shureih of Stittsville. Kurtis Schaefer of Stittsville returned to the Bell Warriors program this season, serving as a team captain and leader. He is off to represent the Warriors in the upcoming all-star game.
