EMC news - The dictionary defines “tradition” as “an established practice or custom.” We don’t know if it qualifies yet as a tradition after just two straight annual general meeting happenings but it’s getting there. For the second straight year, the Goulbourn Township Historical Society’s annual general meeting last Saturday saw a person elected to the Board of Directors after her photograph was shown to those at the meeting. It was a photo of Lynne Blenk who could not attend the annual general meeting held at the Stittsville United Church in Stittsville because of a conflicting family event. But she was agreeable to serving on the Board of Directors and indeed has a long history of involvement in the historical community, particularly in the world of historic reenactments. This was a repeat of what happened at the Historical Society’s 2012 annual general meeting a year ago when Debbie Proulx, who was being proposed for the Board of Directors, could not attend. However, a photo of her was displayed so that everyone would know who she was. She served as the Historical Society’s treasurer for the 2012 year. Lynne Blenk was elected to the Historical Society’s Board of Directors for a three year term. Others elected to three year terms on the Board of Directors were returning Directors Lee Boltwood, Barb Bottriell, Jim Kirkpatrick and Mike Bryan. All these four had completed their three year terms and were up for re-election. See HISTORICAL, page 2

Entries sought in photography competition Special to the News

EMC news - Field of Dreams. This phrase evokes thoughts of the 1989 American movie starring Kevin Costner that involved building a baseball field in a corn field, coining the now-famous line “If you build it, he will come.” But this phrase is also the title for the first class in the 2013 photography competition being hosted by the Stittsville Goulbourn Horticultural Society. Although organized by the Horticultural Society, the competition is open to everyone, although Society non-members must pay a fee of $15 which not only covers entry in the pho-

tographic competition but also covers membership in the Horticultural Society for the remainder of the year. Field of Dreams is the name of class number one in this year’s photograph competition. Entries in this class are to give a panoramic view of a field crop, a meadow or wildflowers. Class two has a typical Canadian theme as it is called “It’s Frozen.” Entries in this class should be a macro photo of a favourite plant or plants, tree, bush or leaf. “What is that?” is class three for the 2013 photography competition. It is to be a photo of a rare or unusual plant or weed.

“Child’s Play” is class four, asking for a picture of a child in a garden. “Ouch!” is class five. Entries should focus on a prickly plant. Class six is called “Plume.” Entries should be of a flower, grass head or bulrush-like figure. And the seventh and final class is “My Vacation.” Entries should be photos of flowers or group planting found while on vacation. The location of the vacation should be listed on the back of the entry. Entries are now being sought in all of these classes for this 2013 photography competition. But you don’t have all that much time to get your entries ready and submitted.









All entries must be submitted in a sealed envelop to one of the branches of the Ottawa Public Library in Goulbourn (Stittsville, Richmond or Munster) no later than Tuesday, Feb. 5. Results will be released just two weeks later, at the Horticultural Society meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 19. Photos entered in the competition can be black and white or colour and either from film or digital. The photos must be taken within the last three years and must not be any larger than 8 inches by 12 inches when submitted. The photos must not be mounted. See DEADLINE, page 2

Historical Society going to look at possibility of corporate memberships

Historical Society Continued from page 1

Others on the Board of Directors who were not up for election at this year’s annual general meeting were Debbie Proulx, now entering the second year of her three year term, and John Brummell and Tina Cockram, both entering the final year of their three year terms on the Board. Having eight elected members on the Board of Directors is a change which was authorized by a motion at the annual general meeting. The number of elected directors rose from the previous seven to eight as the Board felt that an additional member would make it more probable that the quorum of at least four members in attendance would be more easily attainable for the Board’s regular meetings. There was also discussion at the annual general meeting about whether the immediate past president, who sits on the Board of Directors, should have a vote or not. Up until now, the immediate past president, sitting in an ex officio capacity on the Board, has not had a vote. President Barbara Bottriell explained that the immediate past president has not had a vote because that person is not elected at the annual general meeting. A phrase identifying the immediate past president “as a nonvoting member” was removed from the motion that added one more elected member to the Board of Directors. Robin Derrick is the current immediate past president of the Goulbourn Township Historical Society.

EMC news - Corporate memberships may or may not become a reality for the Goulbourn Township Historical Society. At its annual general meeting last Saturday, the Historical Society launched a study group headed by Society member and Stittsville businessman Phil Sweetnam that will examine the issue of possible corporate memberships. The matter of corporate memberships was brought up at the meeting by Society president Barbara Bottriell who admitted that the Board had discussed the matter after it was brought up at the 2012 annual general meeting but that no conclusion had been reached. She wondered what the Historical Society had to offer businesses in return for

Grants in ‘12 Special to the News

EMC news - The Goulbourn Township Historical Society received two grants in 2012. One was from the city of Ottawa for $3,000. The other was a grant for $1,545 which was a Heritage Ontario Development Grant. Total income for the Histor-

ical Society in 2012, including these grants, donations, memberships, sale of publications and fundraising, was $10,387.71. Expenditures for 2012 totalled $9,254.19. The Historical Society began the year with $4,950.15 as a bank balance. The bank balance at the end of the year was $6,083.67.


Goulbourn Township Historical Society president Barbara Bottriell holds a photo of Lynne Blenk who was elected to the Society’s Board of Directors at the Society’s annual general meeting in Stittsville last Saturday. Lynne could not be at the meeting, so the photo was used to identify her to those at the meeting. She is appropriately wearing period clothing in the photo as she takes part in historic re-enactments.

Deadline approaching for photo contest Continued from page 1

There is a limit of one photograph per person per class. All photographs must be identified with the person’s name, address and phone number. Remember, if you are not a member of the Horticultural Society, you must submit a fee of $15 with the entries. The Photographic Cup will be awarded

to the person who accumulates the most overall points in the judging for the competition. The Carleton Security Cup will be awarded for the photograph judged to be the best entry across all of the classes. The winning photographs in this competition will be displayed on the Art Space Wall at the Stittsville branch of the Ottawa Public Library and/or at the Goul-

bourn Recreation Complex on Shea Road in Stittsville. The winning photographs will also be printed in a centerfold collage in the Horticultural Society’s 2014 yearbook.

their corporate sponsorship. Phil Sweetnam suggested that it might be more appropriate for the Historical Society to seek corporate donations for particular events or projects rather than go the route of corporate memberships. But Historical Society vicepresident Mike Bryan suggested that corporate memberships is something that the Society out to pursue in the year ahead. “The more I think about it, the more I like the idea,” he said about corporate memberships. He said that there are many organization which benefit from corporate memberships and usually list such corporate members on their websites. Society members were asked to provide input about the corporate membership proposal to the study group that is to be formed to examine the idea.

Plaque may commemorate Methodist Campgrounds John Curry

EMC news - The Methodist Campgrounds of Stittsville may be commemorated with an historic plaque. Erecting such a plaque to mark the location and history of these Campgrounds, site of church camp meetings from the 1890’s through to the 1970’s, may be done by the Goulbourn Township Historical Society after the idea was suggested by member Lillian Hobbs at the Society’s annual general meeting last Saturday in Stittsville. And the suggestion grabbed a lot of endorsement and support from others at the annual general meeting, causing Historical Society president Barbara Bottriell to remark on the high degree of support which there seems to be for such a plaque project. She did say that the Society’s Board of Directors has not yet set its priorities for 2013 but noted that now that the Society has successfully erected a plaque commemorating the Great Fire of 1870, it will be able to turn its attention seriously to consideration of a plaque for the Methodist Campgrounds. In suggesting such a plaque, Mrs. Hobbs noted that there is much that could be said about the Methodist Campgrounds, its location and its history. She noted that her brother

was a minister who worked at the Mapledene Camp at the Methodist Campgrounds and she herself was at the Methodist Campgrounds when she was only six years old. She admitted that a plaque would cost money, as evidenced by the $2,502.95 cost for the plaque commemorating the Great Fire of 1870 which was erected at Village Square Park last September. She suggested that a plan be developed to finance a plaque commemorating the Methodist Campgrounds, a plan which might include seeking some grants. “Let’s get it done,” she urged the Historical Society. She immediately received support from a number of other Historical Society members at the meeting. Robin Tilgner voiced support for the plaque proposal, noting that the story of the Methodist Campgrounds needs to be told. Lesley McKay, who grew up in Stittsville, told how she had enjoyed art and swimming activities at the Methodist Campgrounds, noting that a lot of Stittsville youth of her generation were able to attend activities at the Campgrounds, benefitting as well from the good principles and morals which prevailed there. Society members Phil Sweetnam, Marion Gullock, Marj Gillick and June Warner all spoke in favour of the proposal, as did city of Ot-

tawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri who was in attendance at the meeting. He said that just like with the plaque commemorating the Great Fire, he would be happy to work with the Historical Society on erecting a plaque commemorating the Methodist Campgrounds. The campgrounds in Stittsville are now just a memory, an area of Stittsville which now includes houses and sports fields. But from 1890 to 1974, these campgrounds, first known as the Holiness Church campgrounds and, after 1959, as the Free Methodist campgrounds, were a religious summer recluse for many. These campgrounds eventually extended from Manchester Street through to Poole Creek. The site is now the location of Long Meadow Way and Forest Heights Avenue as well as the soccer pitch and second ball field at Alexander Grove park. The campgrounds had their initial development with the founding of the Holiness Movement Church in Canada, an evangelistic movement founded by Rev. Ralph Horner which had its roots in the Ottawa area and eventually spread over much of the world. A merger in 1958 of the Holiness Movement and the Free Methodist Church, with the continuation of the name

Free Methodist Church, saw the campgrounds in Stittsville come under the jurisdiction of the Free Methodist Church. In the early days of the campgrounds, starting in the 1890’s, a small but faithful group of Holiness Movement adherents converged on the site. The camp at that time was held in July, with both farm and city folk attending. Tents were set up on the grounds, along with a large tent in which main services were held each day of the camp meeting. Special speakers and singers were brought in for these services. The initial site of the campgrounds was adjacent to Manchester Street. Among its permanent buildings were a parsonage, a barn and an open shed for horses. As time went on, strong bonds of friendship grew up among those who attended the camp meetings and gradually regularly-attending families erected small cottages on the site. The first row of these cottages, leading in from the gate on Manchester Street, included those of families such as the McGregors, Roes, Pritchards and Warrens. These camp meetings in Stittsville became more popular with the advent of the 20th century and this brought about the need to purchase more property which the Holiness Movement Church did

in both 1905 at a cost of $250 and again in 1911 at a cost of $600. The property holdings were increased to about 35 acres in total at a later date, with the site extending northward to Poole Creek. The first meeting tent was replaced by a larger one on the site. A pathway ran from the campgrounds site to the Holiness Church which was on a hill along Stittsville Main Street. The property for this church was purchased by the Holiness Church in 1898. This building still stands today, having housed MacDougall Sales and Services for years and later Captain Sandy’s Travel and still is used for commercial uses. More and more cottages were built on the campgrounds’ site as the years went by, reaching over 20 at one point. A few of the cottages, such as the Manchester family cottage, were two storey buildings. It developed that mothers and children would spend the summer at the campgrounds with the fathers joining them on the weekends, arriving either by train or by car. The campgrounds had a dining tent for meals and later a dining hall building was constructed. In the summer of 1926, the Holiness Church built a meeting place or tabernacle on the site to replace the use of a meeting tent. The building featured


See METHODIST, page 5


ventilation in the roof which could be opened during the warm summer services. This wooden tabernacle served for more than 40 years before the roof collapsed under heavy snow. A steel frame building was then erected which was removed after the 1974 camp season when the campgrounds was closed down by the Free Methodist Church. The Free Methodist Church had property in the Picton area to use as a large central summer campground, making the Stittsville campgrounds and five other similar camps surplus to its needs. The summer activity at the Stittsville campgrounds had increased after the merger of the Holiness Movement Church with the Free Methodist Church in 1958. In 1961, new washrooms and showers were built at the campgrounds at a cost of more than $10,000. A 30 foot by 60 foot swimming pool with change rooms was also built on the site as the Mapledene youth camps, which were formerly held at a Brockville site, were transferred to the Stittsville campgrounds. Fire had damaged the facilities at the Free Methodist Church camp in Brockville, with the result that its operation, including its Mapledene youth camps, were transferred to the Stittsville site.

A bugler rouses campers from their tents on a morning in 1960 at the Methodist Campgrounds in Stittsville.

stittsvilleoptometry 1464 Stittsville Main St. Stittsville, ON

Youngsters enjoy themselves in and around the swimming pool at the Methodist Campgrounds in Stittsville during a Mapledene youth camp in 1965.


In addition, another tabernacle was erected at the Stittsville site for youth work, crafts and other programs. A number of new cottages also sprung up on the site. In these Mapledene youth camps, boys and girls in groups of 100 to 125 met for periods of a week to ten days during the summer season. As many as 50 tents were pitched on the grounds to house these young people. A full program of camp activities was provided, including crafts, religious education, swimming and sports of all kinds. The program would normally consist of Bible study and crafts in the mornings, with recreation including swimming in the afternoon and a worship service in the evening. These youth camps were attended by young people from many points not only in Ontario and Quebec but also in northern New York State. An aluminum youth centre was erected on the site for the use of these young people and a motel-type dormitory was built, named McFarlane Lodge in honour of Rev. Charles McFarlane of Smiths Falls who was a director of the Stittsville camp for many years. Space over the dining hall was also used as a dormitory. In 1952, a work party planted 1000 seedling

trees at the Stittsville campgrounds. The construction of the swimming pool and some of these other campgrounds improvements were carried out through the sale of some of the campgrounds property by the Free Methodist Church. Starting in 1967, the swimming pool was made available for use to village residents at certain times of the day. This tradition lasted until the campgrounds closed in 1974 and indeed was then carried on for two years by Goulbourn township’s recreation department. However, vandalism at the isolated location forced abandonment of the pool and the swimming program. In 1979, Goulbourn township agreed to purchase eight and a half acres of the former Methodist campgrounds in Stittsville for $85,000. The purchase also gave the township four acres of land along Poole Creek as well as one and a half acres of land as the parkland allocation for a planned housing development for the rest of the acerage. The $85,000 used for this purchase came from the $113,000 received by the township from the new Amberwood Village development that was getting underway at that time. This $113,000 was a payment made in lieu of a parkland allocation in the Amberwood subdivision. The rest of the Methodist campgrounds acerage was eventually purchased from the Free Methodist Church by Rideau (Stolp) Homes which developed a 66 lot subdivision on the site. Once the campgrounds in Stittsville closed after the 1974 season, the various buildings and cottages were removed from the site over the next couple of years. A fire caused severe damage to one of the remaining cottages while vandalism did cause damage to some of the remaining structures. Although the Free Methodist Church’s camp at Bloomfield in the Picton area has now replaced the Stittsville campgrounds, its development benefited from the Stittsville site. In 1990, on the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Stittsville campgrounds, a new motel was dedicated at this Wesley Acres Camp at Bloomfield. This motel was built thanks to funds from the earlier sale of the Stittsville campgrounds.

NEWS 30-year Waste Master Plan The City is developing a plan to manage Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s waste over the next 30 years, during which time Ottawa is expected to grow by 300,000 residents. This Waste Master Plan is broken down into three phases: Phase 1) Establish vision, goals and targets; Phase 2) develop strategies to achieve goals and targets; Phase 3) develop short term plan and budget for the ďŹ rst 10 years. Phase 1 was completed last year and Phase 2 is currently underway with a consultation piece that I hope many of you will take part in. We have an online questionnaire available at which will help us understand where you think we should be headed as we deal with waste over the next 30 years. Questions include diversion, enforcement and bag limits. SpeciďŹ cally, this survey asks whether or not we should lower our current bag limit so I strongly encourage residents to ďŹ ll out the survey and give us your thoughts on these important issues. I, for one, am against a reduction in the current bag limit and I have already ďŹ lled out a survey indicating so. Thank you in advance for your participation in this study. If you are unable to ďŹ ll out a survey online, please let my ofďŹ ce know and we will make arrangement for you to participate. 2013 OfďŹ cial Plan Review â&#x20AC;&#x153;Building a Liveable Ottawa 2031â&#x20AC;? is a city-wide review of land use, transportation and infrastructure policies that make up the OfďŹ cial Plan, Transportation Master Plan, Infrastructure Master Plan, Cycling Plan and the Pedestrian Plan, with an eye towards making Ottawa a more vibrant, healthy and sustainable city. The focus of the review is to propose solutions to 12 current planning issues. The outcome of the review will be an updated OfďŹ cial Plan and supporting plans with policies and priorities that inďŹ&#x201A;uence the future growth of our city for years to come. The public has an opportunity to learn more at an open house January 29 at Ottawa City Hall starting with an information session at 5:30 p.m. in Jean Pigott Place. Planning Committee Chair Peter Hume will ofďŹ cially kick off the OfďŹ cial Plan review process at the event, urging residents to get involved. A staff presentation will follow with details on the preliminary policy directions for the OfďŹ cial Plan and other master plans under review.

Charity dinner at Napoliâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cafe John Curry

EMC news - Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a Molson beer fridge stocked with a new case of Molson product every month, delivered, no less. Appealing. A dinner party for six at Napoliâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s CafĂŠ. Enticing. Racing at the Calabogie Race Track. Thrilling. A sports weekend in Denver for four people for both football and hockey games. Awesome. And more, all desirable. But it was the dance moves by Napoliâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s co-owner Bassel Khalil while standing on a railing in the middle of the restaurant that brought the house down at the recent annual Customer Appreciation Charity Dinner at the restaurant. Priceless. Basselâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s railing dance performance has become something of a tradition at this annual event which sees thousands raised for a charitable cause or causes, all through an auction and raffle of donated items and experiences such as the Molson beer fridge, the dinner party, the Calabogie Race Track racing and the Denver sports weekend. The event is further enhanced by the fact that it is an invitation-only happening involving Napoliâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regular customers, giving the charity night a family-like atmosphere. Indeed, Bassel admits that if there could be one big table at which all 120 guests could sit, they would all choose to sit together. Most attending have attended the event year after year since it began six years ago. Another attraction at this customer appreciation charity dinner is the presence of members of the National Hockey League (NHL) Ottawa Senators. Bassel was worried that the NHL lockout which was in full flight at the time of the charity dinner on Tuesday, Dec. 18 might adversely impact the event in terms of auction items and raffle prizes. But his fears proved groundless, especially since several Senators players

â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Chris Neil, Kyle Turris and Erik Condra - and even coach Paul MacLean attended the event. Ottawa Senators executive Cyril Leeder was also in attendance. MC for the evening was former Ottawa Rough Rider and Ottawa-area sports broadcaster Ken Evraire, a childhood friend of Basselâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. But despite all of these celebrity guests, Bassel is firm in what makes the event such a fundraising success â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the generosity of his customers who attend. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They come here to support the restaurant and whatever cause we are behind,â&#x20AC;? Bassel says. The proceeds from this most recent customer appreciation charity dinner at Napoliâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s CafĂŠ, totaling $32,825, was divided among three causes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Rogerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s House and help for two local families, one in Kanata and one in Stittsville. And while $32,825 was raised for these three causes, another $25,000 was donated to the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s CyberKnife fundraising campaign after an impromptu but impassioned speech at the event by Luke Rochefort, a close friend of Basselâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s who owns the St. Louis Bar and Grill in Ottawa and who has survived testicular cancer thanks to treatment using the CyberKnife. His story prompted the $25,000 donation. CyberKnife is a revolutionary piece of technology that is improving survival rates and recovery times for people living with cancer. It provides non-invasive treatment for cancer patients who prefer an alternative to surgery. This weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dine-A-Rama campaign which involves about 100 restaurants in the Ottawa area, including Napoliâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, is raising funds for this CyberKnife campaign. Bassel emphasizes how those at the customer appreciation charity dinner are so supportive of the causes being supported. And while he ad-

mits that the dinner is held in the busy pre-Christmas rush period for the restaurant, he admits that holding this special event at the restaurant is well worth the time and effort. Indeed, he admits that he loves the event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my favourite day of the year,â&#x20AC;? he says about the event. He canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say enough about the generosity and support of his customers at this event, as they purchase the auction items and buy raffle tickets. He also is most appreciative for all those suppliers and others who donate the items for the auction and raffle. One of the auction prizes that has consistently been a top money generator at the event has been the sports weekend in Denver for four people who get to take in a Denver Broncos game as well as a Colorado Avalanche game, all in luxury suites. This time it brought forth a $6,000 bid, again leading the way in the auction. Bassel also praises his brother Milad who looks after everything in the kitchen at Napoliâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. He gets all the suppliers on board and comes up with a great menu every time. This time it involved soup, salad, tenderloin and dessert. And no one leaves this annual customer appreciation charity dinner empty handed.

Jumping off the development merry-go-round


he challenges posed by development projects popping up across the city call for innovative responses, which is exactly what one Ottawa community association is doing. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something other community groups would be wise to take a long, hard look at as well. The idea, proposed by the Ottawa South Community Association, is to recruit members who have expertise

in land-use planning, architecture development and construction on the associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s planning and development review committee, known as OSWatch. The committee is forced to deal with complex development applications, relying on a dozen or so members who may not have the necessary expertise or experience to craft a position on such proposals. This forces the committee to spend most of its energy

trying to understand and later fight unwanted applications instead of being proactive and encouraging desired development. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a familiar problem for the dozens of community associations across Ottawa and the result is costly and unproductive. The process begins with a development application. If community members donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like the proposed building, a number of meetings are held where the developer

outlines its plans, followed by a response â&#x20AC;&#x201C; usually negative â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from area residents. If the political pressure is strong enough, the ward councillor fights the application, sometimes over the objections of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s planning staff. If city council rejects the application, the developer has the option of appealing to the Ontario Municipal Board. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where the real fun starts. The city doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly

have a stellar record opposing development supported by its own staff before the OMB. Case in point: the 2011 decision by the OMB to expand the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s urban boundary by 850 hectares, over the objections of council and at the cost of hundreds of thousand of dollars in legal fees. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help that the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s position was at odds with its planning staff. Nobody enjoys the ride on this merry-go-round â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not

the city, the residents and not the developers, even if they ultimately win their case at the OMB. Wasted time. Wasted money. Old Ottawa South is hoping to get off this topsy-turvy ride and create a proactive development review process. By working with developers instead of automatically pegging them as the enemy, both parties can avoid many of the conflicts that often end up in the laps of the OMB. Compromise is often required, and that can only come following good communication and intelligent analysis.


Dreaming of a better Sparks Street CHARLES GORDON Funny Town


parks Street looks pretty bedraggled these days. Mind you, some of that is just the way winter works on our city. The snow piles up, then it melts, revealing all of yesterdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s litter and dirt. But of course litter is not all thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bothering Sparks Street, a place that has never lived up to the high expectations placed on it when it opened as a pedestrian mall in 1966. Not that it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a pleasant place at times. In the warm weather, at lunch hour, hundreds of people enjoy the sun and the stroll and visiting with their friends. Tourists, down from Parliament Hill, grab a coffee or a souvenir. But, as many observers have noted over the years, the place is silent as a tomb after six oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;clock and more or less deserted on weekends. What happened? Well, the federal government happened. The government owns much of the real estate along Sparks and has not been helpful to merchants and would-be developers. At any given time, a number of merchants will have been displaced while Public Works renovates something or other. Even the most ardent planning advocate must be wondering if Sparks Street might have been better off with unbridled development. The other thing that happened was the Rideau Centreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opening in 1983. Not that Sparks Street was exactly thriving before that, but it thrived even less afterwards. Important merchants decamped for the new shopping centre and shoppers were attracted away from Sparks Street. After that grew the idea that Sparks Street needed fixing. Various plans were implement-

ed, most of them seeming to involve moving planters around. None of them worked. And the attempt to lure tourists to Sparks Street has had an unintended consequence. Now the complaint is that you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find anything on the street that isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t aimed at tourists. The latest proposal, one not put forward as a solution but as something worth trying, is to put a zip line, a kind of glorified rope slide, somewhere on the mall to attract thrill-seekers. Well, it might do that. But if it succeeds it will just bring zip line enthusiasts to the mall. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll zip and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll go home, unless there is something else to attract their attention. The same goes for another perennial dream â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a Sparks Street casino. People will come to the casino, stay in it and go home. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing for Sparks Street in that. The idea is not just to attract thrill-seekers and tourists to Sparks Street, but to attract people who live here, people who could decide to come downtown to shop instead of going to their nearest mall, who might decide to eat on Sparks rather than in the ByWard Market, who might want to hang out on a street where there is no traffic. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to believe this is impossible to achieve, yet it has been impossible to achieve for 46 years. The only thing that will save Sparks Street is a permanent constituency â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in other words, more people living downtown. And should there be apartments where there were once dark offices, those who live there would flock to Sparks Street, if it was open at night and if there were stores and clubs and restaurants of quality. These in turn might attract people who live away from the core. In the meantime, new options will be presented for your consideration. Markets and zip lines and new logos and more planters. Whatever option is chosen, one of them should not be reopening Sparks Street to traffic. Great cities all over the world have created pedestrian-friendly areas and many of them work really well. Cities that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have such areas wish they did. We would too.

Life membership presented to Hilda Moore John Curry

EMC news - Three presentations happened at last Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual general meeting of the Goulbourn Township Historical Society. A life membership â&#x20AC;&#x201C; only the fourth such membership presented since the Society was formed in 1977 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; was presented to Hilda Moore of Richmond, a longtime Historical Society member who chaired the Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s museum committee and who for years has helped with the production of the Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newsletter, particularly its obituary section. Her contribution to the Historical Society over the years was recognized with the presentation of the life membership, along with a corsage to mark the occasion. Ms. Moore said that she had initially joined the Historical Society to help delve more into the history of the family of her

late husband Sumner Moore and the familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relationship to the early settlers of Richmond. She said that she has enjoyed working with various people involved with the Historical Society over the years, noting that she, along with all of the other volunteers, are involved with the Historical Society and its work not for glory but for the satisfaction which such involvement brings with it. A presentation â&#x20AC;&#x201C; this time a certificate for Stittsvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pocopazzo restaurant â&#x20AC;&#x201C; was made to Virginia Notley, who is stepping down as editor of the Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newsletter after 14 ½ years filling the role, covering some 75 issues since 1998. She also served on the Historical Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s museum committee until it ceased last year with the creation of an independent Goulbourn Museum incorporated body. Another presentation which happened at the Historical Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual general meeting was the presentation of a pot of flowers to Georgia Derrick who has been looking after the

Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s programs. The flowers were a gift of appreciation for all of the work and effort that she has put into this role over the years.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Fill the gapsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; focus

EMC news - The diagnosis of autism in children is one in 100. Autism is a complex, neurological disorder that inhibits the development of communication and socialization skills â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it is a most disabling development disorder. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why there are organizations like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Children At Risk, Ottawa,â&#x20AC;? which is a registered charity providing community supports for children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders. Established in 1979, Children At Risk Ottawa operated publicly-funded programs until 2001-2002 when childrensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; services in the Ottawa region were amalgamated. This changed the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s focus to one of trying to â&#x20AC;&#x153;fill the gapsâ&#x20AC;? in services for children diagnosed with autism that are provided by publicly-funded and other private services. The organization carries out this work thanks to donations and fundraising efforts. Indeed, the organization has been described as being â&#x20AC;&#x153;the little charity which does big things.â&#x20AC;? Brenda Reisch, executive director of Children At Risk Ottawa, told members of the Rotary Club of Ottawa â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Stittsville at their Jan. 15 meeting that in 2011, Children At Risk Ottawa moved to fill a big gap, namely establishing

a summer camp for autistic children. The first Camp Kaleidoscope was held in 2011, running for four weeks, with a total of 89 spots available for autistic spectrum disorder children requiring one-on-one or two-on-one supervision. Because of this one on one or two on one supervision ratio, the camp is expensive to run but Children At Risk Ottawa ran it again in 2012. Indeed, it not only ran the camp again but the camp was expanded because of the demand, running for five weeks and offering 146 spots.

also activities like swimming, cooking, boating on Dowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lake and visits by a karate expert, a personal trainer and even firefighters. Ms. Reisch said that autistic children do socialize and communicate in the right circumstances as evidenced by the summer camp. Another new program which Children At Risk Ottawa launched after the initial summer camp in 2011 was a Saturday respite program which gave parents an opportunity to drop off their child at the five-hour program and get a respite break from the 24/7 care which is involved when a child is autistic. Parents can use this respite break, for in-

stance, to do shopping or to spend more time with other children. Children At Risk Ottawa currently offers a number of programs and activities. There are friendship social skill therapy groups for children with autism and Aspergerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Syndrome. There are activity-based social skill therapy groups for autistic children with moderate needs. There are sibling support groups for brothers and sisters of autistic children. There are information seminars and educational workshops that are open to extended family members and

family-support workers. And there are community support programs that include sponsorship of student placement programs through Algonquin College, Air Canada Dreams Take Flight trips, an annual family picnic and Christmas party and access to event tickets donated by various local sports and entertainment organizations.

Children At Risk Ottawa is planning to operate the camp again this coming summer, although Ms. Reisch admitted that it is an ongoing struggle to raise the over $100,000 that is needed for the camp. Parents also pay an affordable modest camp registration fee to help with some of the costs. Those aged from 4 to 24 attend the camp which has not only this range of ages but also a range of levels of functionality by the children. Some are high functioning while others have higher needs. This Camp Kaleidoscope runs like other summer camps, with outings to places like the Imax Theatre, museums and Saunders Farm. There are

‘Crumble Quartet’ plays


Catherine Campbell plays the cello as the “Crumble Quartet” performs at the Friday Music Night at the Gaia Java Coffee Company shop in Stittsville last Friday.

EMC news - “Let them eat cake” is a quote attributed, perhaps falsely, to the infamous Marie Antoinette, showing her disdain for the starving masses. But there is no comparable “Let them eat crumble” situation involving the so-called “Crumble Quartet” because the group served up a musical treat far in excess of any crumble or indeed any cake as they performed at the Friday Music Night at the Gaia Java Coffee Company shop in Stittsville last Friday evening. The four lady musicians, who also play with the larger

Ottawa-based Strings of St. John’s ensemble, entertained the full house at the coffee shop with a repertoire that included not only classic Bach and Mozart but also the unique music of English composter Gustav Holst, the theme from TV’s “Masterpiece Theatre” and the music of tango dancing. The quartet calls itself the “Crumble Quartet” because when they get together on a regular basis to develop their harmonic creations, they share plates of fruit crumble. Crumble is a dish of British and Irish origin that features a simple crisp topping over

a stewed fruit, usually apple, peach, rhubarb, blackberry

Dine-A-Rama launch at Napoli’s Cafe John Curry

EMC news - It was champagne toasts all around at Napoli’s Café in Stittsville last Monday afternoon, Jan. 21 as organizers of the Jan. 23 Superfoods Dine-A-Rama at 100 restaurants across Ottawa celebrated the launch of what they hope will be a $100,000 or more fundraiser for the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation and its campaign to bring CyberKnife technology to cancer patients in the Ottawa area. This Dine-A-Rama campaign will see the 100 participating restaurants contribute a portion of the proceeds from their revenues on Wednesday, Jan. 23 to the campaign. Already, two days before the event was even happening, $40,000 had been raised towards the campaign’s $100,000 goal. It all began thanks to the use of CyberKnife technology which helped Luke Rochefort, owner of St. Louis Bar and Grill in Ottawa, overcome testicular cancer. He was diagnosed with the disease in 2010 and after undergoing treatment using the CyberKnife, he has a clean bill of health today. In order to support the equipment that helped save his life and ensure that even more people can be helped

by this revolutionary piece of technology that is improving cancer survival rates and recovery times, Luke, with the help of other restaurant owners like Bassel and Milad Khalil of Napoli’s Café in Stittsville, developed the campaign that would see local restauranteurs come together on one day, Jan. 23, and donate a portion of sales that day to the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation. Speaking at the campaign launch at Napoli’s Café last Monday afternoon, Luke Rochefort said that there has never been a campaign like this one before, where 100 restaurants are getting together to donate a percentage of sales from a particular day to a cause. “This is pretty cool to do this all together,” he told those at the launch. He expressed the hope that the word about the DineA-Rama event had spread throughout the community and that the participating restaurants will be filled on Jan. 23. Ottawa sports personality Ken Evraire, who was at the launch, noted how everyone has had their lives touched in some way by cancer. He said that while more people today are being diagnosed with cancer, earlier detection means that more people are successfully beating the disease.

He praised Luke Rochefort for handling his battle with cancer with grace and courage and for now taking a leadership role in the community in raising funds to help fight the disease. At the launch, John Ouellette of the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation presented Cancer Connection Awards to the key organizers of this

Dine-A-Ram campaign. These awards are presented by the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation to those who go above and beyond the norm in raising funds and helping to fight cancer. Mr. Ouellette noted that those who have stepped up to organize this Dine-A-Rama campaign are helping people that they will probably never

meet and yet they are still involved in the campaign. Cancer Connection Awards were presented to Luke Rochefort; Bassel and Milad Khalil of Napoli’s Café; Mike Bouris of Chances “R” Restaurant; Lindsay Firestone; and Dave Rochefort of Molson’s who is also Luke’s father. Lindsay Firestone and Dave Rochefort did a lot of the leg-

work, visiting restaurants and getting them on board for this Dine-A-Rama campaign. Bassel Khalil, speaking at the launch event, said that the campaign shows how much the restauranteurs in the Ottawa area care about Luke Rochefort. He said that the restaurant community in Ottawa has really come together for this cause.


Recipients of Cancer Connection Awards from the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation as six of the organizers of the Dine-A-Rama fundraising event involving 100 restaurants in the Ottawa area raising funds for the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation and its CyberKnife campaign who are at the Dine-A-Rama launch ceremony at Napoli’s Cafe in Stittsville last Monday afternoon are, from left, Dave Rochefort of Molson’s; Lindsay Firestone, who with Dave Rochefort did a lot of the legwork to get the restaurants on board for the Dine-A-Rama event; Milad Khalil of Napoli’s Cafe; Mike Bouris of Chances “R” Restaurant; Bassel Khalil of Napoli’s Cafe; and Luke Rochefort of the St. Louis Bar and Grill in Ottawa.

Two films in series are Golden Globe nominees John Curry

EMC news - Two of the ďŹ lms nominated for best foreign ďŹ lm at the 70th Golden Globe awards on Sunday, Jan. 13 are included in the International Film Series being presented by the Rotary Club of Ottawa â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Stittsville. Both â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Intouchables,â&#x20AC;? a French ďŹ lm that has become one of the highest grossing non-English language ďŹ lms of all time, and â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Royal Affair,â&#x20AC;? a Danish ďŹ lm that was presented at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival, were among the ďŹ lms nominated for the Golden Globes. The best foreign ďŹ lm award went to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Amour,â&#x20AC;? an Austrian production. But having two of the four ďŹ lms in the series nominated at the Golden Globe awards says something about the caliber of ďŹ lms that are being shown in the series. Indeed, the Canadian-made â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stories We Tell,â&#x20AC;? another ďŹ lm in the series that is directed

by Canadian award winning actress Sarah Polley, recently won the Rogers Best Canadian Film Award with its $100,000 prize. And the fourth ďŹ lm in the series, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Sapphires,â&#x20AC;? an Australian musical comedy, was well received by movie goers at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival. Now, those who want to see all four of these movies will have to act quickly because the ďŹ rst one, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Intouchables,â&#x20AC;? which, by the way, has English subtitles, is being shown this Thursday, Jan. 24 at 7 p.m. at the Empire Theatre at Kanata Centrum in Kanata. It is a ďŹ lm whose story revolves around the development of an improbable bond between a wealthy quadriplegic and a young offender of Senegalese descent who is hired as a live-in caregiver. But if you are too late for this, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fret. Passes for the ďŹ lm series will still be sold but will be pro-rated for three ďŹ lms rather than four ďŹ lms. For example, after the ďŹ rst movie

this Thursday, passes will be sold for $27 to cover the remaining three movies. However, a word to the wise â&#x20AC;&#x201C; you should act quickly because the passes are selling quickly and all the seats in the theatre may soon be ďŹ lled up. Next comes â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stories We Tell,â&#x20AC;? on Thursday, Feb. 21 at 7 p.m., again at the Empire Theatre at Kanata Centrum. This ďŹ lm had its world premiere at the 2012 Venice Film Festival and followed that up with its North American premiere at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival. Being selected as the best Canadian ďŹ lm recently was just icing on the cake for this ďŹ lm. The third ďŹ lm that will be shown in this International Film Series presented by the Rotary Club of Ottawa â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Stittsville will be the Golden Globe nominated â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Royal Affair,â&#x20AC;? which will be screened on Thursday, March 21 at 7 p.m. at the Empire Theatre in Kanata. This ďŹ lm is an historical drama set in 18th century Denmark

at the court of the mentally ill King Christian VII of Denmark. It features a romance that develops between the Queen and the royal physician. Although a Danish ďŹ lm, it has English subtitles. The fourth and ďŹ nal ďŹ lm in this International Film Series is a musical comedy â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Sapphires,â&#x20AC;? a 2012 Australian ďŹ lm about four indigenous women who form a musical group and travel to Vietnam in 1968 to entertain the troops in the war there. This ďŹ lm had its world premiere at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. This ďŹ lm will be shown at the Empire Theatre at Kanata Centrum on Thursday, April 25 at 7 p.m. A pass to see all four of these movies over this four month period is selling for only $36 for one person at the Gaia Java Coffee Company shop at the Stittsville Shopping Centre (Shoppers Drug Mart plaza) on Stittsville Main Street. If a pass is purchased after the ďŹ rst movie has been shown, the cost will be pro-rat-

ed accordingly. Reaction to this ďŹ rst-ever International Film Series has been so positive that the initial run of passes sold out and more passes had to be printed. Fortunately, the theatre at the Empire Theatre complex in Kanata can accommodate these increased numbers. But there is a limit â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so get your pass soon. What is great about the passes is that the passes are transferable. So, if something comes up and you cannot attend one of the movies, you can give it to someone else to use. The Rotary Club of Ottawa â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Stittsville is presenting this international ďŹ lm series thanks to the cooperation and partnership of Film Circuit, the ďŹ lm outreach arm of the Toronto International Film Festival. For more information about this International Film Series, please call Valerie Wright, a member of the Rotary Club of Ottawa â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Stittsville, at 613-836-9125 or send an email to ďŹ .

This initial movie will be followed on Friday, March 8 with the showing of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ice Age 3,â&#x20AC;? also known as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs.â&#x20AC;? This 2009 computer animated comedy adventure film went on to become one of the highest grossing animated films of all time, so you know that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good. This winter movie nights

series will wrap up with the showing of the 2012 Walt Disney fantasy drama film â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Odd Life of Timothy Green.â&#x20AC;? It is about a magical pre-adolescent boy whose personality and naivete have a profound impact on the residents in his town. Those planning to attend these winter movie nights are urged to take along chairs and blankets for comfortable seating. Everyone is welcome. However, just like for the summer movie nights at Village Square Park which were hosted by Stittsvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s youth connexion program, there is no supervision provided for children. Older youth can stay on their own but younger children will require parental supervision.

Skating and music John Curry




18 Stittsville News EMC - Thursday, January 24, 2013

EMC news - Starring Canadian figure skating legend Elizabeth Manley, along with other renowned skaters like Elvis Stojko, Joanne Rochette, and Nancy Kerrigan, the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Elizabeth Manley and Friendsâ&#x20AC;? ice show at Scotiabank Place this Saturday, Jan. 26 promises to offer a unique combination of live music and skating. And while it will be Elizabeth and her talented friends who will be performing on the ice, one of those who will be singing while the skaters skate will be Stittsvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own Nathan Haller, a Sacred Heart Catholic High School graduate who is now a fourth year undergraduate students at the renowned Juilliard School in New York City. Nathan will not only be one of those singing while the skaters in the gala skate on the ice but he will also have a solo performance as well. Elizabeth Manley first heard Nathan sing a number of years ago at an induction ceremony for the Ottawa Sports Hall of Fame. She has been aware of his vocal endeavours ever since and when she was planning this â&#x20AC;&#x153;Elizabeth Manley and Friendsâ&#x20AC;? ice show to raise funds for youth mental health initiatives, Nathan was engaged as one of the singers to add that live musical touch to the event. And Nathan certainly will not be out of place at the event. This past summer, he was in Germany where he performed with the Munich Radio Orchestra and was part of numerous concerts in Neumarkt and Dresden under the direction of conductors Maestro Helmut Rilling and Maestro Hoftsetter. Reviews from these performances described Nathan as â&#x20AC;&#x153;a brilliant tenorâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;a lyric tenor with a rarity who had a beautifully guided

Nathan Haller voice that the market longs for.â&#x20AC;? Indeed, he was even offered a contract with the Frankfurt Opera House upon completion of his studies which may be a little while away yet as he plans to pursue a Masters Degree in Music starting this September. Recently Nathan performed in â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Night at the Operettaâ&#x20AC;? concert at the Lincoln Centre in New York City as The Juilliard Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vocal department collaborated with the New York Festival of Song to put on an evening dedicated to the world of operetta with its witty and charming music drawn from Europe and America. So, this â&#x20AC;&#x153;Elizabeth Manley and Friendsâ&#x20AC;? ice show gala will give Stittsville and area residents as well as others from across the city and region an opportunity to hear and enjoy Nathan Hallerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s talented singing while enjoying the beauty of on-ice figure skating by some of the Canada and the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best skaters. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;Elizabeth Manley and Friendsâ&#x20AC;? ice show at Scotiabank Place this Saturday, Jan. 26 at 7 p.m. will be raising funds for the Do It For Da-

ron initiative regarding youth mental health and for the Youth Services Bureau of Ottawa. This is Elizabeth Manleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s way of giving back to her community as she herself has suffered from mental health issues. She is aware that there are thousands of teens across Canada who are facing the same kind of challenges with mental issues as she did and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why she has invited some of her talented friends to perform in this ice show. Elizabeth Manley herself is a silver medalist from the 1988 Olympic Games as well as a three time Canadian champion. Elvis Stojko is a two time Olympic silver medalist, a three time world champion and a seven time Canadian champion. Joanne Rochette was the 2010 Olympic bronze medalist and is a six time Canadian champion. Nancy Kerrigan is an Olympic silver medalist, an Olympic bronze medalist and a former United States champion. Also performing will be Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford, 2012 Canadian pairs champions; Kaitlyn Weaver and Andrew Poje, Canadian world competitors; Jozef Sabovcik, a six time Czechoslovakian champion; Shawn Sawyer, a Canadian world competitor; Gladys Orozco, a Mexican national champion; and Allie Hann-McCurdy and Michael Coreno, Canadian world competitors. Also singing at the event will be Ericka Hunter, an Ottawa native who has performed on Broadway. Her debut album is expected to be released this spring. Tickets for the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Elizabeth Manley and Friendsâ&#x20AC;? ice show this Saturday, Jan. 26 at Scotiabank Place are available through

Hockey legend plays role in car show photo John Curry

EMC news - Joe Aragonaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s colour photograph â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hot Rod Hangoutâ&#x20AC;? now on display in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Halcyon Daysâ&#x20AC;? exhibit at the Ottawa West Arts Association (owaa) gallery at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex in Stittsville has a connection with hockey legend Guy LaďŹ&#x201A;eur. No, they arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Guy Lafleurâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cars but he played a signiďŹ cant, if unknowing, role in setting the stage for this photograph which Joe Aragona took at a car show beside the Rideau River at Merrickville. He was at the show with camera in hand, as is his custom, on the lookout for an appealing photo shot. When he came upon the three hot rods which he turned out capturing in the photograph â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hot Rod Hangout,â&#x20AC;? the sun was in the right position. The sky and clouds also were cooperating, adding another dimension to the possible shot. But the clincher was that the scene was devoid of any people, just the way that Joe likes it when he is doing such a car show photo. And why were there no people around at that moment? Well, Guy LaďŹ&#x201A;eur, the former National Hockey League star, happened to be passing through the adjacent Rideau

Canal locks on his boat at just this particular moment. Everyone had rushed over to the locks to catch a glimpse of the legendary hockey player, leaving a deserted scene at the hot rods. Joe snapped away, capturing the scene as you can see it now on display at the owaa gallery. And, no, Joe did not miss seeing Guy LaďŹ&#x201A;eur either. After he ďŹ nished with his car photo, he rushed over and was still able to snap a photo of Guy LaďŹ&#x201A;eur with his boat. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the car photo, not the one of Guy LaďŹ&#x201A;eur, that he entered in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Halcyon Daysâ&#x20AC;? exhibit. A â&#x20AC;&#x153;halcyon day,â&#x20AC;? one that is peaceful and serene, may mean different things to different people and for Joe Aragona, nothing marks a â&#x20AC;&#x153;halcyon dayâ&#x20AC;? more than three hot rods displayed beneath a blue, cloud tinged sky. Indeed, Joe Aragona has combined his passions for photography and his passion for cars which is why his entries in the owaa exhibitions feature cars â&#x20AC;&#x201C; his current â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hot Rod Hangoutâ&#x20AC;? photograph for one, and his â&#x20AC;&#x153;Flaming 1949 Fordâ&#x20AC;? photograph that was part of the last owaa exhibition entitled â&#x20AC;&#x153;ReďŹ&#x201A;ection.â&#x20AC;? Joe started out photographing people, landscapes and urban street scenes. He still takes such shots but for a few years now, he has been focusing on cars as his primary sub-

ject matter. It is not only that he sees cars, especially classic cars, as works of art in themselves, an

artistry that he tries to capture in his photography, but also he is a car buff himself. He restored his ďŹ rst car when he

was only 15 and he worked as a car detailer during his university years. He has tinkered with several classic cars over

the years and avidly reads car magazines and books. See CAR SHOW, page 21


Joe Aragona shows off his colour photograph entitled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hot Rod Hangoutâ&#x20AC;? which is currently on display in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Halcyon Daysâ&#x20AC;? exhibition at the Ottawa West Arts Association gallery at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex in Stittsville.

Car show photo Honouring mom by walking Continued from page 20

So, it’s just natural that he would take photos of cars. Joe admits that sometimes he just happens to be in the right place at the right time to snap that photo of what he sees. On other times, he works with a car owner, creating a photo in a specific setting and light. “I try to capture a unique aspect of the car, or take the shot from an angle that creates a mood or an impression, or establishes a character trait that I see,” Joe explains. He also tries to capture the play of different types of light on the car to help create a particular image or impression. When all of this works out and result in an interesting photo, that’s when he considers making it a large format print. He likes to use large format prints for his car photos simply because cars are big in themselves and they deserve such treatment. For the past five years, all of Joe’s photographic work has been done digitally. Before that, he started out with black and white and then eventually moved into colour photograph. Joe has been active in photography for almost 30 years now. It all started in high school when a teacher handed him a used camera and asked him to take photos for the school yearbook. This eventually sparked his interest in photography, as

he even set up a home darkroom for developing his photos. He purchased his own camera and admits to carrying it everywhere during his last two years of high school. He went on to study journalism in university, with his photographic skills sharpened by the mandatory photo-journalism course that was part of the curriculum. Upon graduation, he found that freelance reporting jobs were easier to get if he mentioned his ability to take photos as well. So photography continued to be part of his life, both in work and as a hobby. He had developed a love for photography and it has been one of his passions ever since. Joe finds that his photos of cars evoke all kinds of reactions but in all cases, it always results in a great conversation when he is around. And since he also is a car buff, he can easily take part in any such conversation, whether it is discussing the pros and cons of a particular car or whether it is telling a story about a similar car or whether it is just a talk about cars in general. Joe Aragona’s colour photograph called “Hot Rod Hangout” is now on of the 27 pieces of art on display at the current exhibition entitled “Halcyon Days” at the owaa gallery at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex on Shea Road in Stittsville. The exhibition is on display until Friday, March 1.

Special to the News

EMC news - For Brian McKerness of Richmond, participating in the annual “Walk for Memories” hosted by the Alzheimer Society is a way of honouring – and remembering – his mom. An account, he has lived and worked in Toronto, Kingston and Ottawa but through all of these moves, he has always sought out the local Alzheimer Society and has participated in the annual “Walk for Memories” in all three cities since the mid 1990’s. His mother, Madeleine Lyng, died of Alzheimer’s disease and so he honours her by participating in the Walk. He remembers his mother as a warm, funny, compassionate and intelligent person. It was a January when she passed away, so walking in the “Walk of Memories” every January seems fitting to Brian. Madeleine Lyng grew up on a farm just behind St. Clare’s Catholic Church on Dwyer Hill Road in Goulbourn. “After she finished her schooling, “Brian says, “she left for Montreal where she married and raised a family of four.” “When we children were young, our entire family would travel to the Ottawa area and visit relatives,” he recalls. “We would all say that we were going “up

home.” Now, over the years, as he takes part in the Alzheimer’s Society’s “Walk for Memories,” he once again feels on that day that he is going “up home” with his mom. “As we grow older, an illness like Alzheimer’s may affect any of us,” Brian notes. “Volunteering one Sunday morning out of the year to walk a few kilometers around an inside track is not a lot of work but can generate big rewards,” he says. Brian gets donations for his participation in the Walk by posting a sign-up sheet at work. One year he raised over $1,200 through participating in the Walk. Besides honouring his mom with his participation in the Walk, Brian has made some great new personal memories through his annual participation in the event. There’s the presence of the bagpipers who parade at the Walk. There’s also the thrill of hobnobbing with the likes of Max Keeping, the wellknown Ottawa TV personality and community booster. He finds that everything about the “Walk of Memories” is organized efficiently, right down to volunteers who help with the parking.

Stittsville Kumon Centre marks 20 years John Curry

EMC news - The Stittsville Kumon Centre is marking 20 years of helping children in the community develop their math and reading skills. There’s an open house being held this Saturday, Jan. 26 to celebrate the occasion and give parents an opportunity to learn about the Kumon approach to learning. “At Kumon, we believe children have unlimited potential to succeed,” says Merilee Clarke, who owns the Kumon Centre in Stittsville with her husband John. “Our goal is to help each child develop strong academic skills, a love of learning and the confidence to excel beyond the classroom,” Ms. Clarke adds. Kumon takes the approach that every child learns at a different rate. Because of this, each child has an individual plan that is at the appropriate level for the child and has a time line that allows the child to comprehend the concepts completely before moving on. Indeed, Ms. Clarke notes that a test to go on to the next level is not given to a child until she is confident that the student will achieve a 95 or 100 percent mark. “That’s our goal,” Ms. Clarke says; namely, that every student will get 100 percent in the tests. Another goal, more long term, is for each student to become an independent learner, that is, being able to learn how to learn on their own. One who has achieved success at the Stittsville Kumon Centre is 15 year old Shelly Cao. She has been at the Kumon Centre for almost five years. Now in grade ten, she has completed both the math and reading programs at Kumon. She will, however, be staying on as a youth instructor at the Kumon Centre, helping younger students and marking their work. She says that she found the Kumon program a lot more challenging than school but as a result, school for her became easier. While she has always been a good student, she found that she was able to maintain her high level of accomplishment in school because of her Kumon learning. Stittsville Kumon Centre class hours are on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Kumon Centre premises located in the corridor area at the Stittsville Shopping Centre (Shoppers Drug Mart plaza) on Stittsville Main Street. Students study for about half an hour per subject in class and have short, specially designed work sheets to complete

at home. The homework is important because it imbeds the latest learning with the student so that the student does not forget in between classes what was learned at the last class. Children who attend the Kumon Centre could be those who are having trouble with math and reading but also are those who want to reach ahead and work beyond their school grade level. One incentive which the Kumon Centre uses is the distribution of Monopoly-like currency – Kumon money – which students receive for completing their work in class, for completing their homework or for passing a test. The play money can be redeemed for a Chapters gift certificate or other items when certain amounts are accumulated. Ms. Clarke says that this Kumon money not only serves as an incentive but also helps the children learn how to handle money and how to save. Kumon is the world’s largest after-school math and reading enrichment program. Its individualized approach helps children progress by ability rather than age or grade. Over 250,000 students are enrolled in Kumon programs across Canada. In Stittsville, a Kumon Centre was first opened 20 years ago by Bonny Junkins in the downstairs hall at St. Thomas Anglican Church. Two years later, Bonny asked Merilee Clarke, who was director of a pre-school program which also met at the church, if she would be interested in teaching the reading program at the Stittsville Kumon Centre. That was 18 years ago and Merilee Clarke, now the owner with her husband John, still loves getting to know and enjoy the personality of each child and guiding them through the learning process. “In my experience, I’ve learned that there are no limitations that can be placed on children,” Ms. Clarke says. “It is important to empower students to take a more involved role in their education,” she says. “In my many years with Kumon, I have seen students make incredible advances, building towards a future bright with opportunity and promise.” James Patrick continued the work of the original owner Bonny Junkins, developing a Kumon Centre in Stittsville dedicated to the success of the children involved. Merilee and John Clarke purchased the Stittsville Kumon franchise three years ago, relocating from its previous premises in the Ultramar Plaza on Stittsville Main Street to its current home at the Stittsville Shopping Centre (Shoppers Drug Mart plaza). That’s when John

became part of the Stittsville Kumon team. Founded in Japan in 1958, the Kumon after-school math and reading programs use an individualized approach that helps children develop a solid command of math and reading skills. Through daily practice and mastery of materials, students increase in confidence, improve concentration and develop better study skills. There are Kumon Centres in 47 countries around the world. The Stittsville Kumon Centre’s open house

this Saturday, Jan. 26 will run from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. with cake and refreshments being served. There will also be craft activities for children and lots of opportunities for parents to chat with John and Merilee Clarke about the Kumon program. City of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri will be on hand at 2 p.m. for a cake cutting ceremony. Everyone is welcome to attend and see for themselves the Kumon Centre facility and learn about the Kumon approach to learning.


Shelly Cao, who has studied in the Kumon program for almost five years, has completed the math program as evidenced by her name being up beside the star at the top of the ladder. Students progress up the ladder one step at a time.

Huntmar Drive upgrades but not till year 2019


for a road such as Huntmar Drive. However, there are not any development applications as yet and hence the city cannot get the required wider road allowance as a condition of the development proposal. The temporary improvements which have been made along Huntmar Drive from



Maple Grove Road north to Palladium Drive cost over $200,000. They improve the lighting and allow for safer pedestrian usage. These temporary improvements help not only on Ottawa Senators game nights at Scotiabank Place but also for traffic going to the Palladium Auto Park.

Plaque, book by Historical Society in 2012

EMC news - The 2012 year saw the Goulbourn Township Historical Society record two major accomplishments. In her presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s report at last Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual general meeting of the Historical Society, president Barbara Bottriell outlined these two accomplishments, both of which involved more than two years of work and effort by Society members.. One was the installation of a cast bronze plaque commemorating the Great Fire of 1870 and its destruction of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Old Stittsvilleâ&#x20AC;? on the Carp Road. After being turned down in its effort to have a provincial historic plaque erected to mark the event, the Historical Society decided to fund the erection of such a plaque itself in the belief that the Great Fire was a significant event in the history not only of Stittsville but of the greater Carleton County area. In addition, the destruction of Old Stittsville by the fire was an important event in Stittsvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history. The plaque, which cost the Society $2,502.95, was unveiled at the 2012 Villagefest activities at Village Square Park. President Bottriell said that the Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second major accomplishment of 2012 was the publication of the book â&#x20AC;&#x153;Goulbourn Stained Glass,â&#x20AC;? featuring photographs of 105 stained glass windows in 12 Goulbourn churches. The 60 page book also presents brief histories about the families to whom the windows are dedicated. Bernie Shaw did all of the research and writing for the book while the photography was handled by John Bottriell, John Brummell and Mike Bryan. John Bottriell did all of the technical work required to prepare the book for publication while Barbara Bottriell oversaw the project as editor. But these two major accomplishments were only part of the Historical Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s activities during 2012. During the year, the Historical Society participated in ten public events, most involving

the presence of costumed interpreters. These included Heritage Day celebrations both at the Stittsville branch of the Ottawa Public Library and at Ottawa city hall; the Art and Authors in the Park event in May; the Rockinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Royalty event in June; the Canada Day celebrations on July 1; the Beckwith Township Heritage Day event; the War of 1812 celebration at the Goulbourn Museum; the Richmond Fair parade; and Villagefest in Stittsville. The Historical Society participates in such events to publicize and to communicate local history to members of the public. The year 2012 also saw the Historical Society set up a local history space at the Stittsville library thanks to the cooperation of the Ottawa Public Library. This local history space includes a table and a computer which holds digitized versions of the Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s historical photo collection. This collection is searchable by anyone who wants to see the photos. The local history space also includes the Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history files as well as the Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s archival material that is housed in a four-drawer filing cabinet next to the computer desk. This includes social history files as well as family history files. There is an index outlining the contents of the cabinet. Those wanting to use these local history resources can do so simply by signing in at the libraryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s information desk. Reference materials, historical magazines and some books are also available at this local history space. Members of the Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s archival committee are currently indexing all of the files and improving their organization where possible. The Historical Society issued four editions of its newsletter in 2012. Longtime editor Virginia Notley is stepping down from the position with Lesley McKay, who grew up in Stittsville, taking over as the new editor in 2013. The Historical Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website in 2012 was maintained by John Bottriell. There are plans to update the website

Society membership Special to the News

EMC news - The Goulbourn Township Historical Society has 82 memberships at present. The number of actual members is more because some of the memberships are family memberships as opposed to single memberships. The Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s membership number have been fairly steady in recent years, Society membership chair Robin Derrick reported at the Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual general meeting in Stittsville last Saturday. This has meant about 81 memberships a year, covering about 114 members. In 2009, the Society had 74 memberships covering 104 members. Mr. Derrick told those at the annual meeting that the Board of Directors of the Historical Society is thinking about changing the membership year to a calendar year. At present memberships run from April 1 to the next March 31. The Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual general meeting, though, is in January. A switch to a calendar year for memberships would make it more convenient for members to renew when attending the annual general meeting rather than doing it around April 1. Mr. Derrick also noted that now about half of the Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s members now receive the Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newsletter via email. It used to be that all of the newsletters were sent in the mail.

this year, providing capacity for more photographs. The Historical Society hosted four speakerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s presentations in 2012. Topics included Charlotte Whitton, the history of Richmond, researching military records from the War of 1812 and Women at War. Programs also included a steam train display, a celebration of Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Elizabethâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Diamond Jubilee and a Christmas social. In the summer of 2012, the Historical Society undertook an outing to the Waba Cottage Museum at White Lake, including a lunch stop in Burnstown. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Goulbourn Stained Glassâ&#x20AC;? was not the only book which the Historical Society printed in 2012. The Historical Society also arranged to print more copies of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ghosts of Goulbourn,â&#x20AC;? a book written by Bernie Shaw first printed in 2004 but which had been out of print for several years. Most of the copies printed were sold by late November, with a few copies remaining for sale in 2013. The Historical Society also presents an award in history at the three local high schools â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Sacred Heart Catholic High School and the Frederick Banting Alternate Program in Stittsville and South Carleton High School in Richmond. The Historical Society also lays a wreath on behalf of the

Society at the three local Remembrance ceremonies â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in Richmond, in Stittsville and in Munster. Other Historical Society activities which the Historical

Society undertakes from an outreach perspective include the creation and staffing of exhibits, trying to establish a presence in local schools, erecting plaques on buildings

with historical significance, promoting a costumed interpretersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; program, maintaining a website and hosting an annual heritage photo competition.

‘Nothing But A Child’ Special to the News

EMC news - It’s a major fundraiser for Stittsville’s Main Street Community Services, namely its annual “Nothing But A Child” gala which is coming up on Saturday, Feb. 9. This year’s gala has taken on even more importance than ever because Main Street Community Services has been without one of its other major fundraising sources during the National Hockey league labour dispute, i.e. the sale of 50/50 draw tickets at Ottawa Senators home games. For the 2011-2012 season, volunteers for Main Street Community Services raised $15,000 for the organization thanks to the sale of these 50/50 tickets at Sens games. With the labour dispute, half of this season has been lost and that means quite a fundraising loss for Main Street Community Services. This means that the upcoming eighth annual “Nothing But A Child” fundraising gala takes on even more significance. Hopefully it can be more successful than ever, helping to make up for some of the funds lost with the lack of NHL hockey so far this season at Scotiabank Place. The “Nothing But A Child” gala is an evening of fun at the Sixty-Four Hundred Celebration Centre at the corner of Hazeldean Road and West Ridge Drive in Stittsville. It begins with cocktails at 5:30 p.m. and ends with music and dancing into the evening. There is a three-course dinner as well as silent and live auctions, with all of the funds raised going to support the programs and services provided by Main Street Community Services for children and youth with special needs. Tickets at $80 per person are available by phoning Main Street Community Services at 613-831-6606 or via email at There are also corporate tables available. In addition, Main Street Community Services is looking for donations for its live and silent auctions.

Main Street Community Services, which is located at the rear of the former Stittsville Public School facility (now the Frederick Banting Alternate Program) on Stittsville Main Street, delivers services and programs with an emphasis on compassion, individuality and strong therapeutic relationship. This unique approach promotes self-esteem and a healthy environment in which to thrive. Main Street Community Services has developed and implemented comprehensive, researchbased programs. Its services and programs include residential and respite services, day school and after-school programming, social skills training, mentoring, parent support programs, individual and family counseling and a social skills summer day camp. Depleting resources, budget constraints and increased costs of living are challenges which Main Street Community Services must meet in order to continue providing its innovative and successful programs to special needs children and their families. As a not-for-profit organization and a registered charity, Main Street Community Services relies on the generosity of individuals as well as organizations, foundations, corporations and the community in general for the survival of its programs. Its motto, which is display on the walls at Main Street Community Services, is “Achieving is Believing” and the organization measures its success by the smiles on the faces of the children and the gratitude expressed by the parents. Main Street Community Services tries to put humanitarianism back into the social service system for the benefit of families and their children. In 2012, Main Street Community Services provided its services and support to over 200 families and their special needs children and youth. Shelley-Anne Steinburg is the executive director of Main Street Community Services. She can be contacted at 613-831-6606 or via email at

Lions public speaking contest Special to the News

EMC news - There’s a $100 prize for the winner in each category as well as prizes for all participants, so participation – and winning – does have its benefits in the upcoming public speaking contest being hosted by the Stittsville District Lions Club.. This public speaking contest is open to students from grades 6 to 12, with three categories: junior for students in grades 6, 7 and 8; intermediate for students in grades 9 and 10; and senior for students in grades 11 and 12. The speech can be delivered in either English or French. In the junior category, participants will be required to give a speech three to five minutes in length. At the intermediate and senior levels, besides the prepared speech, participants will be required to give an impromptu speech at least two minutes in length. Winners in each category can go on to another level of competition if they wish, namely at the District level, competing against successful speakers from contests held by other Lions Clubs in the area. The winner at this District level has the opportunity to go on to yet another level of

competition, namely the Multiple District level, competing against speakers from other Lions Districts. This year the Stittsville District Lions Club has inserted a new category into this local public speaking contest. If it not formal public speaking per se but rather this category is for any youth or group of friends who have a comedy routine or some original drama or presentation that they would like to present. This is a wide open category, with anything from a Jerry Seinfeld-like comedy routine to a Shakespearean soliloquy. Anything goes and it could be fun, both for the participant or participants as well as the audience that night. Oh yes, this public speaking contest being hosted by the Stittsville District Lions Club is being held on Wednesday, Feb. 13 at the Lions Hall on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville. So, there is a little over a month for youth to decide to participate and to prepare for the event.

Seven not lucky number for Royals In the game on Tuesday, Jan. 15, the Ottawa Canadians led 2-0 after the first period and 5-1 after two periods of play before ending up with a 7-1 victory. A goal by Nate Blenkarn of the Royals at the 16:13 mark of the second period was the only shot out of 31 that the Royals got by the Canadians goalie. Alex Bouchey assisted on this lone Royals goal in the game. Last Sunday at the GRC in Stittsville, it was a much closer game between these two teams. Ottawa skated away with a 7-4 victory but the game was tied 3-3 well into the third period when the Royals scored at the 8:59 mark to knot up the game. The Ottawa Canadians, though, then responded with three goals in less than five minutes to take a commanding 6-3 lead and an eventual 74 victory.

John Curry

EMC sports - Seven is usually considered a lucky number. But it sure wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t this past week for the Stittsville Royals of the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League. The Royals went up against the Ottawa Canadians twice and both times the Canadians scored seven goals to chalk up victories against the Royals. On Tuesday, Jan. 15 in Ottawa, the Canadians scored seven goals on 46 shots on the Royals net to coast to a 7-1 win over the visiting Royals. In a return match last Sunday afternoon at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex (GRC) in Stittsville, the Royals again gave up seven goals to the Canadians snipers to go down to a 7-4 defeat. R0011875647-0124

This game was a scoreless tie after the first period. Ottawa scored twice to open the scoring in the second period but the Royals came back to score at the 11:37 mark to cut the lead to 2-1. After Ottawa scored again to make it 3-1, the Royals scored on a power play at the 19:39 mark to make it a 32 game going into the third period. In this third period, the Royals scored at the 8:59 mark to tie up the game at 3-3. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when the visiting Ottawa Canadians responded with three straight goals to take control of the game and skate to a 7-4 victory. Ottawa finished the game with 44 shots on the Royals net while the Royals managed 23 shots at the Ottawa goal. Scoring for the Royals in this game were Steve Genier, Jake Oliver, Alex

Hulford and Alex Bouchey. Picking up assists for the Royals in this game were Steve Genier with three, Alex Hulford with two and Alex Bouchey, Steven Plescia and goalie Arun Kumar with one apiece.

ABBOTT STREET Adam Abbott bought one and a half acres on the east half of Lot 23, fronting on Concession 11 in 1896, and sold it to William Abbott the next year in 1897. William then retired to Stittsville to live, after selling his farm implement business in Ottawa at the turn of the century. He lived at 6223 Abbott Street with his wife until his death at the age of 96 in 1929. The couple celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary while living in Stittsville and attracted 600 guests to a party in their honour. *Information regarding the “Did you know…” story was taken from the book Stittsville a Sense of Place by Barbara Bottriell, 1998 ALWAYS LISTENING AND ACTING ON YOUR CONCERNS As your Councillor, I always welcome your keen input and ideas on how we can sustain and improve Stittsville.

RVA annual meeting coming up John Curry

EMC news - Here comes the annual meeting of the Richmond Village Association (RVA). It could be a watershed meeting for the RVA that could very well determine if it continues to exist or if it goes down the road to disband. The annual meeting will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 5 at 7:30 p.m. at St. Paul’s United Church on McBean Street in Richmond. The RVA has indicated that this upcoming meeting is critical – positions as directors must be filled and more volunteers must come forward from the community to indicate a willingness to help

out with the various community activities that the RVA organizes. Community events and activities which the RVA organizes but which depend on volunteer help to carry out include the annual Richmond Village Garage Sale, the Christmas parade, the “Lighting of the Park” ceremony, the winter street banner contest, maintenance of the Richmond village website, spring cleanup day in Richmond with its associated poster contest for students, beautification of Richmond through the hanging of flower baskets in the summer and a garden contest (already cancelled for 2013 due to lack of volunteers). The RVA, as per its mandate to represent the views of Richmond residents on issues of concern, also plays a role in

commenting on development proposals in Richmond and in monitoring initiatives such as the source water protection plan. The RVA also tries to be a community information source for the community through its website and facebook page and also through the distribution of flyers outlining upcoming community events and activities. But all of this community involvement and work needs volunteers and those willing to lead the initiatives. The RVA was established in 1997 as an organization to represent the interests of Richmond residents on issues of concern. It also organizes events and activities of a community nature. Current RVA president Don Flanders can be contacted at

STITTSVILLE TRAGEDY Dear residents, As most of you may already be aware, earlier this week a terrible incident occurred in our community of Stittsville. I am deeply saddened by the tragedy and my thoughts and prayers go out to the family during this mournful time. As I have previously mentioned, Stittsville Public School has a crisis management team on hand to support the staff and students going forward. From the perspective of the community as a whole, there are additional services available by contacting the Distress Center of Ottawa at 613-722-6914, dialling 211 or online at The Ottawa Police Services offer a Victim Crisis Unit as well and can be reached at 613-236-1222, extension 2223. Furthermore, the Stittsville Western Ottawa Community Resource Center (WOCRC) would like to remind community members that the Centre offers free crisis and short term counselling. If you are struggling to cope or would like support on how to talk to your child, you may reach them at 613-591-3686 and ask to speak with an Intake Counsellor. Services are confidential, free of charge and financial support for transportation and childcare is available upon request. The Centre is open from Monday to Friday 8:30am to 4:30pm. If after hours support is required, please contact the distress centre at 613-238-3311. Throughout the community, I sense a need to help organize a vigil or other such memorial service. I have been speaking both with the family and Stittsville Public School management, who both recommend that we hold off on the organizing of any such event for at least three weeks to a month. I ask you to respect those wishes, as I intend to do. Once a service or a vigil has been organized, I will communicate the details to the community. I ask you to share this information with your families and friends. Please keep the family in your prayers.

$1,000 prize for Victoria Hossack Special to the News

EMC news - It’s an essay contest with just three winners across Ontario. And Victoria Hossack of Richmond was one of them. The contest was sponsored by Mac’s, the province wide convenience store chain, and offered a $1,000 prize to each winner. Any student with a minimum of two years’ working at Mac’s who was attending college or university in September 2012 was eligible to enter the contest. The essay topic was about the experience working at Mac’s and how that experience changed the life of the person and helped prepare the person to handle future career goals. In Victoria Hossack’s case, she has worked at the Subway located at Mac’s in Richmond but this Subway is run by Mac’s and so she qualified for the contest. In her essay, Victoria was able to point to learning the importance of customer ser-

vice and food safety while working at Subway at Mac’s in Richmond. She also learned about the importance of community events from being involved in a barbecue raising funds for Friends of Hospice Ottawa which was held at the Mac’s in Richmond last June. Victoria, who is a graduate of Sacred Heart Catholic High School in Stittsville, is currently in her second year at Laurentian University in Sudbury, studying zoology. Her interests include sports, karate and music, especially classic rock. She is considered to be a leader among her peers. Dave Biesenthal, manager of the Subway at Mac’s at the corner of McBean Street and Perth Street in Richmond, had the pleasure of presenting Victoria with her $1,000 prize from the contest. “We are all very proud of her accomplishments and I’m sure will hear more great things from her in the future,” observed Mr. Biesenthal.

Stittsville Main Street Community Design Plan

EMC news - Work on the Stittsville Main Street Community Design Plan continues. The Public Advisory Committee associated with the plan met on Wednesday, Jan. 16 at the Pretty Street Community Centre to discuss the progress that has been made on the project since the public visioning workshop that took place last November. This Stittsville Main Street Community Design Plan process is now underway as the result of city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri working with city of Ottawa planning staff to ensure that development along Stittsville Main Street in the future retains the community

feel of Stittsville. The Community Design Plan that will arise from this process will provide a 20 year vision and guidance for development along Stittsville Main Street. It was back in Nov. 2010 that councillor Qadri brought a motion to Ottawa city council asking for a work plan to develop a Community Design Plan for Stittsville Main Street. This request was as a result of a city approval for a five storey mixed residential/commercial building and related townhomes at a site on Stittsville Main Street. Councillor Qadri and some residents had argued that the scale of this development was inappropriate for the community. Stittsville Main Street is designated as a Traditional R0011877490-0124


Mainstreet in the city’s Official Plan, making it a site for intensification of development, creating a compact, mixed use and walkable environment supporting transit, cycling and walking. However, Stittsville Main Street is also covered by Policy 13 which relates to the Master Plan and Urban Design Guidelines of the former Township of Goulbourn. The relationship of this Policy 13, which requires any new construction on Stittsville Main Street to be evaluated in terms of the existing character of buildings along Stittsville Main Street, to the direction of the Traditional Mainstreet designation for Stittsville Main Street in the official Plan has created some ambiguity with respect

to how the former Goulbourn planning documents are to be interpreted today. The Community Design Plan for Stittsville Main Street will try to solve this apparent ambiguity and conflict. Traffic on Stittsville Main Street is also a consideration as the street is meant to continue to function as a primary north/south route in the community. This means that Stittsville Main Street development must be of a type that will encourage a compact mixed use and walkable environment rather than the autooriented, low-rise pattern of development which has prevailed to this point. Stittsville Main Street must evolve as an accessible service hub for the surrounding community rather than its

a public open house presenting this vision and the existing conditions that prevail along Stittsville Main Street will be held in the first quarter of 2013. A draft Community Design Plan document will be produced in the second quarter of 2013. In the third quarter of 2013, a community open house will be held to present the final Community Design Plan and to receive comments from the public. It is envisioned that the Community Design Plan will go to Ottawa city council for approval in the first quarter of 2014. 0124 R0011876738

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories Something was amiss at the Northcote School. First of all, Marguirite sneaked in like she had just been caught with her hand in the cookie jar. She usually made a grand entrance so that everyone could get a good look at whatever fancy outfit she had worn that day, but not only did she come in just as Miss Crosby rang the nine o’clock bell, she wore a wool toque and made no move to take it off, even though hats in school were strictly forbidden. She went right up to Miss Crosby’s desk and whispered in her ear. Miss Crosby looked at the hat, made a great sigh and nodded towards Marguirite’s desk. Every eye was on the young girl who didn’t have a friend in the entire school as she meekly took her seat. Well, if that didn’t just tie it -- she was going to be allowed to wear her hat in school. None of us would dare be so bold. Even the boys, the second they walked in the door, removed their caps and hung them on a hook at the back of the room. At recess Joyce, Velma and I got in a huddle to discuss this latest caper and none of us could imagine why Marguirite, who took such pride in her golden curls, would choose to hide them under a toque. We all knew Marguirite, who thought she was a dead ringer for Shirley Temple, got those curls from Ducharmes’ Beauty Parlour, and the golden hair right out of a bottle of dye from Ritza’s Drug Store in Renfrew.

Marguirite’s ruined hair under her toque has Northcote School students buzzing Even the boys at school noticed the toque. Cecil made some snide remarks and jabbed Emerson in the ribs, but that day that’s about all the attention they gave to Marguirite. There were more important things to do at recess, like pouring water from the pump on the small square of ice behind the schoolhouse. Miss Crosby rang the bell and recess was over. When we went inside, Marguirite’s head was still covered. Well, it was lunch time, and we all knew it wouldn’t be long before either Cecil or Emerson would get to the bottom of Marguirite’s hat. We were allowed to eat inside on winter days, but the second the last mouthful was down, we headed outside to play, either on the small patch of ice or on the excuse for a hill that the senior boys had built up by piling snow over the wood fence at the back of the yard. Out of the corner of my eye, I could see Emerson and Cecil whispering and the look they both had on their faces spelled trouble. In one fell-swoop, they tore past Marguirite, with Cecil making a dive for the toque. They never stopped running until they reached the patch of ice at the back of the schoolhouse. Meanwhile, Marguirite looked like she had been shot with a gun. She stood frozen on the spot, and finally, we could all see why the toque never left her head. Right down the back, where there should have been a cascade of golden curls, was a streak of orange hair, and it was as straight as a stick. She clamped her hand over the spot and ran

into the schoolhouse like someone possessed. Before our lunch hour was over, Miss Crosby rang the big brass bell and we knew Cecil and Emerson were in for it. They had no idea where they had dropped the toque. My youngest brother Earl was sent out to look for it. The two culprits, without asking, knew what was coming. Without even being asked, they went up to Miss Crosby’s desk and held out a hand. She brought the strap down with a thunder that could be heard in Admaston. They boys never flinched. They got far worse fighting each other in the back yard. Earl got the toque, covered with snow, and handed it to Marguirite, who by this time was crying great running tears, wiping her eyes with one hand and covering the offending spot at the back of her head with the other. Marguirite always wanted everyone to believe she was born with golden hair and the curls to match. That day, everyone at school knew different, but the incident was soon forgotten and Marguirite’s mother must have made a fast trip into Renfrew, because when Marguirite walked into the classroom the next day, her head was a mass of golden curls. We had no idea how her mother got rid of the orange streak, but Joyce, Velma and I were pretty sure she had to cut it out with a pair of scissors. Joyce, the most kind hearted of the three of us thought we should all feel sorry for the girl, and maybe tell her so. But when we took a vote between the three of us, Joyce lost.

EMC lifestyle - Lamb shanks are easy to use and delicious; if unavailable, use thick shoulder chops. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s better if made a day or two ahead. Lamb is fresh, lean, tender, mild and easy to cook. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an excellent source of protein, iron and B vitamins. Because lamb isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t marbled like beef, health-conscious cooks can easily trim off the fat. Preparation Time: 30 minutes Cooking Time: three hours Servings: 8 Ingredients 8 lamb shanks Salt and pepper 125 ml (1/2 cup) all-purpose ďŹ&#x201A;our 25 ml (2 tbsp) olive oil 4 cloves garlic, minced 5 ml (1 tsp) each dried thyme and rosemary 2 bottles (341 mL each) stout-style beer 750 ml (3 cups) beef broth 50 ml (1/4 cup) butter 45 ml (3 tbsp) packed brown sugar 3 onions, cut into wedges 3 each carrots and parsnips, cut into 2.5-cm (1-inch) pieces 1/2 rutabaga, cut into 2.5-cm (1-inch) wedges 50 ml (1/4 cup) chopped fresh parsley Preparation Season the lamb shanks with salt and pepper then coat with ďŹ&#x201A;our. In a large ovenproof casserole, heat half of the oil over medium-high heat. In batches, brown the lamb, adding more oil as needed. Remove to a plate. Stir in any remaining ďŹ&#x201A;our along with the garlic, thyme and rosemary. Stir over medium heat for one minute. Remove from heat and gradually stir in the beer. Bring to boil, scraping up any brown bits. Boil for ďŹ ve minutes, stirring often. Stir in 500 ml (2 cups) of broth. Return lamb to the pan and bring to boil. Cover and bake in 180 C (350 F) oven for 1.5 hours. Meanwhile in skillet, melt butter and sugar over medium heat. Stir in the vegetables and season with salt and pepper. Add remaining broth and bring to boil. Add to the lamb, cover and bake in 180 C (350 F) oven for another 1.25 hours or until lamb and vegetables are tender. Sprinkle with parsley to serve.

McCARTHY, Daniel



Dan McCarthy, after a full, creative and fulďŹ lling life, died gently and peacefully on Thursday, January 10th at the Grove Nursing Home in Arnprior, Ontario. His loving wife of ďŹ fty eight years and his family of seven children and their families were there to celebrate his passage. Dan was a man of deep faith. His high school life was under the Basilian Fathers at St. Michaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s High School in Toronto. He spent a year in the Novitiate of the Paulist Fathers in New Jersey. Then he returned to Toronto, graduated with a Liberal Arts B.A. degree from St. Michaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s College, University of Toronto, emphasizing Theology, Music and Drama. He married Mary Sue McGee in 1954. Their seven children are Josie Morrison (Dr. David Morrison), Paula McCarthy, Dr. Susanna McCarthy, Dan McCarthy (Sylvie Boucher), David McCarthy, Dr. Marta McCarthy (Randy Smith), and Matt McCarthy (Erika Berenz). Danâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grandchildren were the joy of his life. They are Sandy Morrison (Jackie Weatherall), Danny Morrison and Mary Morrison, Kate Andrews-McCarthy, Julia McCarthy and Olivia McCarthy. Dan worked at the CBC as a Radio and Television Producer for thirty three years. He did a prize-winning radio series called â&#x20AC;&#x153;How Do You Say Hello?â&#x20AC;? Working with UNICEF, he visited thirteen countries in Southeast Asia interviewing children about their lives. In television he produced and developed â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Friendly Giant,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mr. Dress-Up,â&#x20AC;? and later the Canadian version of Sesame Street. As Head of Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Programming for the CBC for twelve years, he worked passionately to assure quality programming for all children. Later he directed the CBC Sesame Street Project which brought a Canadian sensibility to the viewers. Children could see Canadian landscapes and regional landmarks, hear the French language, and meet their contemporaries representing the whole Canadian mosaic. In retirement, Dan took leading roles in amateur theatre, singing and acting his way into our hearts. He ďŹ lled our home with music, especially opera, musical comedies and liturgical music. He and Mary Sue moved to Arnprior in 2003 to be near their grandchildren. Because he was a stroke victim, he moved to the Grove Nursing Home in 2010. Our gratitude to the Grove Staff for their tender and compassionate care of Dan is beyond expression. Love and gratitude go to Rev. John Burchat, of St. John Chrysostom Parish, Arnprior. Family and friends are invited to pay their respects at the Pilon Family Funeral Home and Chapel Ltd., 50 John Street North, Arnprior on Friday evening from 7 to 9 p.m. A Funeral Mass will be celebrated in St. John Chrysostom Church, Arnprior on Saturday morning, January 19th at 11 oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;clock. Interment Malloch Road Cemetery. In memory of Dan, donations may be made to UNICEF or The Grove Nursing Home, Arnprior.
