Chinese culture presented at library John Curry

News - The Year of the Horse came to the Stittsville branch of the Ottawa Public Library last Saturday afternoon, Feb. 8. On this ninth day of the 15-day long celebration of the Chinese New Year which this year is the Year of the Horse, the Kanata Chinese Seniors Support Group presented a Chinese cultural program that included a traditional Chinese tea ceremony, an exhibition of traditional Chinese singing and dancing, a display of Chinese crafts and candy, a craft table for the making of Chinese lanterns and a display by Smart City

Science of Kanata about the four great inventions that China has given to the world – gunpowder, the compass, making paper and printing with movable type (yes, 400 years before Johannes Gutenberg’s similar invention in Germany around 1450!). The traditional Chinese tea ceremony saw Chinese tea apparatus including a tea pot heated by a candle flame set up in front of the fireplace at the library, with Wen Jean Ho and Jezamine Blomqvist of the Kanata Chinese Seniors Support Centre explaining the significance of the various traditions associated with the tea ceremony. Even city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri, who attended this Chinese New Year

celebration happening at the Stittsville library, listened to the explanations and even enjoyed a taste of this Chinese tea. The exhibition of Chinese singing and dancing included a lantern dance “Joy of Spring” done by a group of seven dancers wearing traditional pink costumes and carrying red lanterns; a song by Li Meiling, accompanied by two playing traditional Chinese musical instruments; a demonstration by six male and female dancers of the Chinese slow motion martial art of Taiji which has become known as a vehicle for exercise as much as for its martial arts

Arena ‘B’ now Matt Bradley Arena John Curry

cillor Qadri and the city of honour for the tremendous honour of having the arena named after him, saying that he was truly humbled that he would be considered for such an honour. He thanked his grandparents, Joan and the late Melburn Scharfe, Bill and the late Isabel Bradley, his parents Paul and the late Sandy Bradley and his siblings for the time, effort and support which they had provided to allow him to pursue his hockey career. He noted that he had been fortunate to play with many great players and to play for great coaches over the years, especially those in his early years in Stittsville. Matt said that he has fond childhood memories from growing up in Stittsville and said that he was looking forward to the day when his two young sons might be playing on the ice at this arena named after their father. “This honour is a gift for them as well,� he said. After the showing of a short video prepared by Sandy Durocher of Stittsville featuring not only NHL action featuring Matt but also some shots of his youth in Stittsville, Matt joined mayor Watson and councillor Qadri in unveiling the plaque that will be erected at the arena identifying it as the “Matt Bradley Arena.�


Former National Hockey League player Matt Bradley, left, who grew up in Stittsville, shares a moment with Johnny Leroux, right, last Sunday. They both now have an arena in Stittsville named after them – the Matt Bradley Arena at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex and the Johnny Leroux Stittsville Community Arena.


News - Up until now, the new ice surface at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex (GRC) in Stittsville has been known as Arena “B�. But going forward, the letter “B� is only going to be one of 11 letters identifying this new arena which opened in May 2012. That’s because the arena has now been officially named in honour of Stittsville native and former National Hockey League (NHL) player Matt Bradley. Yes, it’s now the “Matt Bradley Arena� after a centre ice ceremony last Sunday that included city of Ottawa mayor Jim Watson, Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri, members of the Bradley family and, of course, Matt Bradley himself. The arena will be identified as the Matt Bradley Arena not only on a plaque that will be displayed at the arena and which was unveiled at the centre ice ceremony last Sunday but also with on-ice wording around the centre ice faceoff circle and on the signage on the arena. In his remarks at the 20-minute centre ice ceremony, mayor Watson noted that Matt Bradley’s success in the NHL where he played 675 games for four teams is an inspiration to today’s hockey-playing youth in

the community who have the dream of playing in the NHL. He said that Matt, coming from the community of Stittsville, achieved that dream. Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri, calling Sunday “Hockey Day in Stittsville� not only because of the arena naming ceremony but also because of a sledge hockey festival that was happening at that very arena both before and after the naming ceremony, also referred to dreams, saying that for many of today’s young hockey players in the community, playing in the Olympics or in the NHL is their ultimate dream. “Matt Bradley has realized that dream,� councillor Qadri said, adding that in his NHL career, Matt had been regarded as a solid, hard working player. He noted how during his career, Matt had always been accessible for the media and always provided informative comment while always identifying Stittsville as his home town. Councillor Qadri also said that the naming of this new arena as the Matt Bradley Arena also helps recognize a distinguished Stittsville family, adding that Matt’s great grandfather opened a grocery store in Stittsville in 1914 and the store went on to be a retail fixture in the community for eight decades. In his remarks at the centre ice ceremony, Matt Bradley thanked the mayor and coun-

Matt Bradley has played total of 675 games with four NHL teams John Curry

News - The new second ice pad at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex on Shea Road in Stittsville has been named “Matt Bradley Arena.” Ottawa city council gave its approval to the name at its meeting on Wednesday, Aug. 28, 2013, following up on an earlier recommendation by council’s community and protective services committee that the ice pad be named “Matt Bradley Arena.” The name honours Stittsville native Matt Bradley who began playing hockey in the Stittsville Minor Hockey Association at the age of six with his father Paul as one of the coaches. Matt ultimately went

on to play 675 games in the National Hockey League for four teams over a 12 year career (2000 to 2012). The new name for what had been called “Arena B” since its construction recognizes Matt Bradley’s athletic accomplishments, namely his achievements and excellence in the sport of hockey. It was a career which started with the Stittsville Minor Hockey Association in Stittsville when Matt, who was born in 1978, was six years old. He later played bantamlevel hockey with the Ottawa Valley Titans in the 1993-94 season, a competitive-level team drawing its players from communities across the Ottawa Valley including Stittsville.

He played for the Cumberland Grads of the Central Junior Hockey League in the 1994-95 season before being selected by the Kingston Frontenacs of the Ontario Hockey League in the second round (31st overall) of the 1995 Ontario Hockey League draft. He went on to star for the Kingston Frontenacs for three seasons (1995-1998). Matt played for the Canadian national junior team which competed in the world junior championships in Finland in 1998, a great experience even though the team finished a disappointing eighth. Matt was drafted by the San Jose Sharks of the National Hockey League (NHL) in the 1996 NHL draft, chosen 102nd overall. He turned pro-

fessional for the 1998-1999 season, playing for the Kentucky Thoroughblades of the American Hockey League. After two full seasons with the Thoroughblades, he split the 2000-2001 season between the Thoroughblades and the San Jose Sharks of the NHL. He was with the San Jose Sharks full time in the following season and then remained in the NHL through the 20112012 season. He played two seasons with the San Jose Sharks before being traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins where he spent the 2003-2004 season. It was then on to Washington for six seasons before he joined the Florida Panthers for the 2011-2012 season. In June 2012, the Panthers bought out the remaining year

on his two year contract, making him a free agent. With the lockout at the start of the 2012-2013 season, Matt went to play for TuTo of the Finnish second division but after one game, was injured and returned to Canada. He did not sign subsequently with any NHL club. Over his NHL career, Matt played in 675 games, scoring 59 goals and adding 90 assists while accumulating 562 minutes in penalty. He also played in the Stanley Cup playoffs with both San Jose and Washington. A right winger, Matt was considered a solid, hard working player. Particularly in his years with Washington, he was involved in the team’s outreach activities in the community. He was also inter-

viewed at times on Team 1200 sports radio in Ottawa and was always well spoken, informative and accessible. He was always identified as being from Stittsville, his hometown and the community where his parents and grandparents lived. Matt is the fourth generation of the Bradley family associated with Stittsville. His great grandfather Fred opened a store in Stittsville in 1914 and it went on to be a retail fixture in the community for the next eight decades. Matt’s grandfather Bill Bradley took over the store from his father and then Matt’s father Paul took over the store from Bill. The Bradley connection to the store ceased when it became Brown’s Your Independent Grocer.

News - Dr. Graeme Ferguson sees his job as a way of helping people in their dayto-day living. And he also sees it as “real rewarding work,” helping people see better, saying that people notice the difference as soon as vision improvements are made. Dr. Ferguson, an optometrist who has recently joined Dr. Corrine Motluk and Dr. Alan Franzmann at Stittsville Optometry on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville, is no stranger himself to improved vision thanks to glasses and contact lens since he himself has had vision aids since the age of ten due to a congenital eye condition. He found that working to improve vision was

something that always interested him and so after he had graduated summa cum laude with an Honours Bachelor of Science Degree in Biochemistry from the University of Ottawa in 2008, he decided to go on to study at the University of Waterloo School of Optometry, graduating in 2012 after achieving the Dean’s Honour List every semester. Dr. Ferguson, who was born and raised in Nepean and attended St. Pius X High School before going on to university, feels that while vision is a major part of life, people usually take it for granted. He likes his work as an optometrist because he gets to see and help people of all ages with their vision. Dr. Ferguson is no stranger to Stittsville Optometry as he

‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ is next up in Rotary Film Series Special to the News

News - Coming up next in this 2014 Stittsville Rotary International Film Series is the movie “Inside Llewyn Davis,” a film whose cast includes Oscar Isaac as Llewyn Davis as well as well know actors like John Goodman and Justin Timberlake. This United States film will be shown on Thursday, Feb. 20 at 7 p.m. at the Landmark Theatres at Kanata Centrum in Kanata. This 2013 production is about a fictional folk musician in the early 1960’s in New York. The soundtrack to this film has become popular in its own right, so seeing this film and hearing its music

should be quite a treat. This film has been popular with film critics but it was a loser in the Academy Awards nominations, getting just two nominations, both in craft categories. Directors Joel and Ethan Coen were left out of the nominations for best director and also for writers of the best original screenplay. And also left out of the nominations was Oscar Isaac who plays the title role in the film and has been praised for his singing and acting in the role. But there was no best actor nomination for him.

No easy driveway solution


he cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s planning committee recently approved a plan allowing suburban homeowners to widen their driveways. Perhaps it would be more accurate to say councilors collectively held their noses and approved a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Band-Aid solution,â&#x20AC;? that is a step in the right direction toward a permanent solution, but doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t address some of the reasons for the shortage of driveway space. First and foremost, there tends to be more multicar families in the suburbs compared to their urban counterparts. Some councillors suggest one of the underlying causes of suburbiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parking woes is the development industryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trend of building smaller homes on smaller lots with more vehicles per household. Cumberland Coun. Stephen Blais said the city needs to look at revising its minimum standards for driveway length and garage size, and if that means developers lose part of their market advantage, well, so be it. The city is reconsidering its policy on driveway sizes, as part of a broader review of how suburban housing developments are planned, under the Building Better Suburbs plan. Policy must meet the existing needs of residents, and those vary depending on which part of the city youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in. Case in point:

there tends to be more homes with multi-car families in the suburbs compared to those in urban areas, and therefore they need bigger driveways. Of course, council must also recognize the dangers of allowing an influx of asphalt. Widening driveways could have unintended consequences, such as limiting the space available for on-street parking and aesthetically pleasing and environmentally-necessary features such as trees. Then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the possibility of resurrecting an old bugbear that has consistently haunted Ottawa during the past decade: stormwater runoff. By reducing the amount of permeable ground available for rainwater drainage, the city would need to radically alter its stormwater drainage model. No one wants to travel down that road. But the planning committee addressed this issue by asking staff to prepare an amendment to the private approach bylaws, which would limit curb cuts. In other words, suburban homeowners could increase the hard-surface driveway space in front of their homes, but would not be allowed to expand access to the street. A one-size-fits-all policy rarely works across Ottawa. Any solution to the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parking problems must ultimately rely on neighbourhood-by-neighbourhood decisions.


The grassroots innocence of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game


utting aside the commercial aspects, it was pretty hard not to be impressed by the 17th Annual Bill Kitchen Timbits Jamboree out at the Canadian Tire Centre. From seven oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;clock in the morning until about six at night, 96 kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hockey teams from all over Ottawa and the Valley took to the big ice surface at the arena. That would be more than 1,000 five- and six-year-olds, and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think they werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t impressed. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think their parents and grandparents werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t either. The parents and grandparents, by the way, brought donations for the Ottawa Food Bank. When they werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t on the ice, the kids were in a big room downstairs playing on various things, including the inevitable bouncy castle. When an adult of a certain age sees a bouncy castle, he suddenly realizes there was a large gap in his childhood. Spartacat was signing autographs. There was a juggler, a clown and the loud noise of a lot of excited kids. But the main excitement was on the ice, where there was hardly any noise at all â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a refreshing change from when the Senators play and you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hear yourself think for the amplified music, especially during stoppages

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town in play. Here there were no stoppages in play to speak of and the only noise was of sticks and skates, conversations among parents and grandparents and the occasional cheer when the puck found its way into the net. That would happened a fair amount, as the games were played across the ice surface, three at a time, so a player was never far from the opposite goal and frequently in good position to score. But when they scored, it mattered only to them (and their parents, siblings and grandparents), since one of the rules of the jamboree is that no score is kept. That might sound wimpy, but it works pretty well for the youngsters at this level. They all compete hard anyway, particularly on this day, because who wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

be inspired sitting on the same benches as Chris Phillips and Chris Neil? Who wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to score a goal on the same ice as Jason Spezza and Erik Karlsson score theirs? And no one goes home broken-hearted. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have lots of chances in their later years to go home broken-hearted. Why rush it? Because of the antics of a few fanatics, hockey parents get a bad rap. But when kids play at the earliest ages of the organized game, the parents couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be nicer, at least as far as Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen. Very rarely do you hear parents barking instructions to their son or daughter. Almost never do you hear anyone yelling at the referees. True, some of that comes later, but there have been many advances in coaching techniques over the decades, and along with these have come changes in attitude. You hope that some of these have rubbed off on the parents. Bill Kitchen, who died two years ago, played for the Ottawa 67â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and briefly in the NHL. He ran a Tim Hortons franchise, coached minor hockey in Ottawa, organized a hockey camp and was active in the Timbits jamboree, which now bears his name. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a nice legacy and you could see on the ice, where volunteer coaches skated with their

teams and acted as referees, that there are dozens and dozens of men and women carrying on that tradition. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what helps make hockey so deeply rooted in our culture despite all the competition from computers, video games and bouncy castles. Both boys and girls were active on the ice and so were kids from different cultures. Although hockey may not be as multicultural as some other areas of Canadian life, it is heading in that direction. We all read about the problems in hockey its professional levels. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice to see the innocence of the game when beginners play it.

Beatlemania in Stittsville Jeff Maguire Special to the News

News - Last Sunday, Feb. 9 marked 50 years to the day since The Beatles, the most popular rock band in history, made their first North American television appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show. In conjunction with the Grammy Awards, CBS Television in the United States celebrated the occasion by airing a two-hour special entitled ‘The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute To The Beatles’ on Sunday night.

It wasn’t only the United States that was impacted by The Beatles first televised performance on this side of the Atlantic. Millions of Canadians were also glued to their TVs on that long ago Sunday. Variety shows were big on television at the time and Ed Sullivan’s New York City-based program was equally popular in Canada. In early 1964 I was approaching my teens and rock and roll music had already made a big impression on me. Not surprisingly I was parked squarely in front of the black and white TV in the living room of our home on Elm Street in Stittsville. I will never forget The

Beatles performance. Neither will my parents! Before writing this column I asked my mother about her memories of that particular night. She remembers it mainly because I was so excited. Mom still says the quartet with mop haircuts weren’t her cup of tea. In fact she thought – hoped probably – The Beatles would be just another musical flash in the pan. I think it is fair to say most parents at the time couldn’t relate to why their children were so enthralled. Fifty years and billions upon billions of dollars later the verdict is clear. The Beatles weren’t a flash in the pan! On the Saturday morning after that memorable first Ed Sullivan appearance by the Liverpool, England foursome I nearly ran to MacDougall’s appliance and furniture store on

Stittsville’s main street. The store had a tiny record section and like most local entrepreneurs the MacDougall’s were smart enough to cash in on a good thing. They had a selection of 45 rpm (single) records released by The Beatles on the Capitol Canada label. I purchased ‘She Loves You’ one of the seemingly endless string of hit singles the band released during their short but stellar career. By the way the song on the flip side (B side) is ‘I’ll Get You’. Later that year I retraced my steps to MacDougall’s, purchasing my first Beatles’ album ‘A Hard Day’s Night,’ the soundtrack from the motion picture of the same name which was the group’s introduction to the big screen. Fifty years later I am still buying Beatles’ music. During the Boxing Day sales I added two more of their albums to my collection.

Binghamton Senators visit A. Lorne Cassidy

Sports - It was hockey day at A. Lorne Cassidy Elementary School in Stittsville last Friday. And, more speciďŹ cally, it was Sens day and, even more precisely, it was Baby Sens day as four members of the Binghamton Senators, the American Hockey League (AHL) afďŹ liate of the Ottawa Senators of the National Hockey League, visited the school and addressed an assembly of students. The Binghamton Senators were in town to play an AHL game against the Hamilton Bulldogs at Canadian Tire Centre last Saturday, with the game being a vehicle to further publicize the Do It For Daron campaign in support of youth mental health initiatives, a campaign named after Daron Richardson, the daughter of Binghamton Senators head coach Luke Richardson, who died from suicide while battling mental health is-

sues. To publicize the Do It For Daron campaign and the importance of an awareness of youth mental health, a number of Binghamton Senators players fanned out in the community last Friday to visit ďŹ ve area schools, one of which was A. Lorne Cassidy Elementary School in Stittsville. The four Binghamton Senators players who visited A. Lorne Cassidy Elementary School were Jim Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien, Buddy Robinson, Cole Schneider and Darren Kramer. All four, wearing their white Binghamton Senators jerseys, also donned toques to ďŹ t in with the crazy hair and hat day which was happening at the school that day as well. John Rodenburg, a morning show host on TSN sports radio 1200 known as J.R., served as the MC for the afternoon assembly in the school gymnasium. He interviewed each player on topics such as bulling, the

importance of being active, staying ďŹ t and achieving goals and dreams. For instance, he asked Jim Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien, a Binghamton Senator who has played some games with the Ottawa Senators not only this season but last season as well, how he handles being sent down to the AHL. Jim Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien responded that he simply tries to work harder while also trying to have fun, while also acknowledging that he looks to his friends and to the fans for support. J.R. asked Buddy Robinson about the importance of being physically active. Buddy urged the students to be active and spend time outside. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Be outside: itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot more fun,â&#x20AC;? he told the students, advising them that they should play outside ďŹ rst before resorting to video games inside. He said that youth should limit their video game playing to one hour a day. Buddyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s teammate Darren Kramer, who likes to spend time

in his carpentry workshop in Binghamton, urged the students to be active during the day, saying that they will sleep better at night as a result. Darren also commented on bullying, urging the students to treat others like they themselves would want to be treated. He said that speaking up about bullying can make a difference in peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lives. It was revealed at the assembly that Darren Kramer, who hails from northern Alberta, is an inventor. He has invented a shrinking jar for food like peanut butter which can be made smaller as the amount of peanut butter in the jar gets lower and harder to retrieve. He admitted, though, that although he invented this when he was 17, he has not yet made any money from the invention. The assembly also featured a video of hockey action and then the four Binghamton Senators answers questions posed by the students.

A Spanish dance by a number of Chinese seniors, wearing colourful costumes made in China with the dance’s choreography done by the dancers themselves, rounded out the performance exhibition, other than a massed singing of the Chinese New Year song “Gong Xi, Gong Xi” which means

“Congratulations, Congratulations” to finish the performance. This afternoon of Chinese culture at the Stittsville library branch, put on by the Kanata Chinese Seniors Support Centre, marked the Chinese New Year which this year is the Year of the Horse.

Face of Fostering

Munster winter carnival

We were married and close to retirement when we started fostering. Throughout the years, we’ve grown as a couple, as individuals and as foster parents. Providing foster care to children and youth is a very rewarding experience. We are given opportunities to learn from others, to learn of their strengths and values and to offer support when possible. We see families change and we see their relationships develop. Since our debut 17 years ago, we’ve come to learn the real purpose of our role as foster parents; to help families stay together.


Paige King carries a couple of pancake-laden plates at the Munster winter carnival pancake breakfast at JOHN BRUMMELL/METROLAND the Munster United Church hall last Saturday. Genevieve Browne, one of the organizers of the Munster Chili Cook-Off at the Munster winter carnival, holds one of the prizes provided by Danby’s Bar & Grill of Munster for the contest. Winners in the contest were Matt Dever who took first place with his chili, while second place was a tie between Shanna Overhoff and Luc Perras.

Because of people like Angela and Patrick, children and youth of our community are able to receive temporary care while the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa works with the natural parent(s) to improve home conditions. February is Foster Family month. This year’s theme, “Face of Fostering”, brings attention to our diverse foster parent team and provides the Ottawa community with answers to the more frequently asked questions. Is parenting experience required to become a foster parent? Can I foster one child at a time? Hear from current CASO foster parents by following us on twitter @OttawaCas.

Community blood donor clinic in Stittsville on Feb. 19 Special to the News

News - Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a community blood donor clinic coming up in Stittsville. Canadian Blood Services is hosting the clinic which will run in the gymnasium at Holy Spirit Catholic School on Stittsville Main Street from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 19. To book an appointment for this blood donor clinic, visit the website or call 1-888-2DONATE (1-888-236-6283).

There is always a need for blood donations and the need is ongoing. It often requires numerous units of blood to help just one patient. A car accident victim, for example, can need up to 50 units of blood which means that 50 blood donations are needed just to help that one patient. Leukemia patients can need as many as eight units of blood a week as part of their treatment. Up to five donors are needed to provide the blood to help someone through heart

surgery. Between two and eight donors are usually needed to help save someone with internal bleeding. Yes, the need continues and only you can make the difference, only you can give the gift of life, a blood donation. Canadian Blood Services is a national, notfor-profit charitable organization that manages the supply of blood and blood products in all of the provinces and territories except for Quebec which has a separate organization, Hema-Que-

bec, which does the same thing. Canadian Blood Services operates 42 permanent collection sites and more than 20,000 donor clinics each year. This upcoming clinic in Stittsville is one of these donor clinics. Canadian Blood Services collects about 850,000 units of blood annually and then processes the blood into the components and products that are administered to thousands of patients each year through blood transfusions.

News - Heritage scenes from across Goulbourn are now on display at the Art Space Wall Gallery at the Stittsville branch of the Ottawa Public Library. They are copies of pen and ink drawings done by the late Bill Salter of Richmond between 1975 and 1982, reproduced, framed and matted for this exhibit by the Goulbourn

Township Historical Society. The drawings are of landmark heritage buildings in Goulbourn with eight hanging on the gallery wall and one on display in the adjacent glass-enclosed display case. The black and white drawings show the Stittsville United Church and the Hudson Insurance building (formerly Greenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hotel) in Stittsville, St. John the Baptist Anglican Church, St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s United Church, Birtch Bros.

Canadian artist who worked in a variety of media including wood carving, weaving, macramĂŠ, pottery, pen and ink, oil and watercolours. He was involved with the art communities in both Ottawa and Edmonton, having earned a B.A. Degree at the University of Alberta in 1965, followed by a Masters Degree in Geography three years later. In fact, he was working on his doctorate when he decided to give up his academic pursuits and become what he himself termed â&#x20AC;&#x153;a full-time starving artist.â&#x20AC;?

Returning to Goulbourn township during the 1970â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Bill created pen and ink sketches of landmark and heritage buildings within Goulbourn and others areas of greater Ottawa. Mr. Salter passed away in February 2012. This exhibit of pen and ink drawings done by the late William â&#x20AC;&#x153;Billâ&#x20AC;? Salter will be on display at the Art Space Wall Gallery at the Stittsville library branch until the end of February. The exhibit can be viewed during the branchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regular hours of operation.

Boston Pizza supports Tysen Lefebvre

News - It’s quite a dream but 13 year old Tysen Lefebvre of Stittsville is proving that dreams can be made to come true. In Tysen’s case, it’s a dream about dreams as this self-proclaimed “The Guy on a Mission” has set as his goal raising one million dollars for the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Eastern Ontario so that the wishes of 100 local children can be realized – their dreams will come true. “Tysen’s Mission To A Million” has now exceeded $40,000 in fundraising, with the latest donation being $940.90 from Boston Pizza at Kanata Centrum where owner Javed Somra tapped into marketing funds available from Boston Pizza for the donation which was enhanced by proceeds from a donation box which sits on the front counter at his Boston Pizza at Kanata Centrum. Indeed, with this donation box brimming with more donations, this Boston Pizza’s donation will undoubtedly be over $1,000 when all the funds are counted. JOHN CURRY/METROLAND

Javed Somra, left, owner of Boston Pizza at the Kanata Centrum, presents a donation of $940.90 to Tysen Lefebvre, right, of Stittsville for his “Tysen’s Mission To A Million” campaign to raise one million dollars to provide the funds needed for Make-AWish Foundation Eastern Ontario to grant 100 wishes to local youngsters.

This is a second donation to Tysen’s campaign from the Boston Pizza at Kanata Centrum as it has already provided Tysen’s campaign with $500 from a charity night which was held at the restaurant in early December. Another similar charity night is being held at this Boston Pizza restaurant at Kanata Centrum on Sunday, March 2 when ten percent of all sales between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. will be directed to “Tysen’s Mission To A Million.” Although not yet confirmed, efforts are being made to have Star Wars action figures on hand at Boston Pizza during this charity night. Tysen’s goal of raising one million dollars for the Make-A-Wish Foundation in Eastern Ontario is based on the premise that such funding would permit the granting of 100 wishes to youngsters with life threatening medical conditions, thereby enriching their lives and giving them both hope and joy. One wish on average costs $10,000, so that is why one million dollars is needed to allow for 100 wishes to be granted. Tysen himself received his dream wish


in 2012 when he got to travel to Los Angeles to meet comedian/actor Adam Sandler. And it was no quick visit – he got to spend several hours with Adam at his studio and office and Adam even provided tickets to a Los Angeles Lakers basketball game at the Staples Centre, complete with a limo ride both to and from the event. Tysen is a big sports fan including basketball, so this was a dream come true. Now he wants to help make the wishes come true for other children. Hence his “Mission To A Million” campaign. Tysen and his campaign have been receiving support not only from Boston Pizza at Kanata Centrum but from the community. Cavanagh Construction has been a big supporter, providing a donation from funds raised at a Christmas party and also providing suite seating for Ottawa Senators and Ottawa 67’s games. Stittsville Public School and Goulbourn Middle School are also providing support for Tysen’s campaign. Tysen’s “The Guy on a Mission” website can be found at


FEBRUARY Musical INCENTIVES! coming Continued from page 1

The exception was 2013 when there was no spring musical held as the church’s musical director was leaving on a ministry program. Her replacement is now ready for the fun of being involved with a musical. The musical “What’s up Zak?” features a story adapted from numerous skits, plays, musicals and, yes, the Bible. The music involved includes a variety of styles from Broadway show tunes to modern day pop and even gospel. The musical deals with the story of Jesus entering the city of Jericho, healing the blind and spending time with Herod’s chief tax collector Zaccheaus and witnessing a life transformation in Zaccheaus’ life. The musical is based in the important historical city of Jericho which is considered to be one of the oldest inhabited cities in the world, dating back to 9000 BC. For the musical, the church’s sanctuary and stage area will be transformed into an oasis with a large city gate, city shops and vegetation in the form of palm, date and fig trees. You can be part of all of this. It all starts this Sunday, Feb. 16 at 2 p.m. with the initial meeting seeking cast and crew for the production.

Sledge hockey festival Special to the News

And guest announcers Mac Keeping, Terry Marcotte, Jody Mitic and Jean Labonte. No wonder last Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sledge Hockey festival at the newly-named Matt Bradley Arena at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex in Stittsville was such a landmark event! The roster of personalities and celebrities in attendance ensured its success. And we are not even talking about the Star Wars figures including Darth Vader, complete with their light sabers, who were there, mingling with the crowd. Or what about Sparky the fire safety dog who was there and even took to the ice to try out sledge hockey.

This Sledge Hockey festival hosted by Sledge Hockey of Eastern Ontario (SHEO) in partnership with the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s emergency services, the Goulbourn Girls Hockey Association and the Kanata Girls Hockey Association features a series of exhibition and competitive games on the fully accessible ice surface at the arena, culminating in the Emergency Services Sledge Hockey Challenge with the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Emergency Services taking on SHEOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ottawa Valley Sledgehammers. Special guests at this Challenge match were Ottawa Senators alumni Brad Marsh and Laurie Boschman, alumni of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s national sledge hockey team, Paralympic medalists and two current Paralympians who are bound for the Paralympic Games in Sochi in Russia in March. Sledge hockey legends such as Herve Lord, Angelo Gavillucci, Jean Labonte, Denis Lapalme and Lou Mulvihill were all on hand to inspire the current and future generations of athletes with physical disabilities. Emily Glossop Nicholson, a recreational therapist at Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Treatment Centre and partner of four-time Paralympian Todd Nicholson, participated in a ceremony to honour Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s historic and current Paralympians. Todd Nicholson himself could not attend as he is currently in Sochi as an athletesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; representative for the International Paralympic Committee. The day gave members of the Goulbourn Girls Hockey Association and the Kanata Girls Hockey Association to try out sledge hockey in exhibition games against SHEOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ottawa Valley Falcons and the Ottawa Valley lasers. There was also sledge hockey league play between the Kingston Knights and SHEOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ottawa Valley Sledgehammers which resulted in a scoreless tie. Off the ice, current and former national sledge hockey team members and SHEO members shared with others the history of sledge hockey, signed autographs and made memories for everyone. The Canadian Paralympic Committee, the Ottawa Power Wheelchair Hockey League and the Miracle League of Ottawa all took part in the event, showing visitors all about the variety of accessible sports and facilities in the community. A Canadian flag signed by well wishers attending the event and cards made by local students and young sledge hockey players are going to be flown to Sochi to encourage the Canadian sledge hockey team at the Paralymic Games there, running from March 7 to March 16. The generosity of PSI Sports Medicine West, Kinemedics, Jeff Gallant Dominion Mortgage Lenders, RFP Solutions Inc. and the city of Ottawa made it possible for SHEO to use the ice at the Matt Bradley Arena for the event.

Royals fighting for playoff berth Special to the News

Sports - It’s coming right down to the wire about whether the Stittsville Royals will make the playoffs or not in the Valley Division of the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League. The Royals are currently in fifth place in the six-team Valley Division with 34 points, one less than the fourth place Shawville Pontiacs and one more than the sixth place Perth Blue

Wings. Only the top four teams in the division make the playoffs. The Royals play their final home game of the regular season this coming Sunday, Feb. 16 with the Perth Blue Wings as the visitors. The game could definitely have playoff repercussions. Last Saturday afternoon, the Stittsville Royals lost 2-1 to the home team Shawville Pon-

tiacs in a game which saw 97 shots directed at the nets. The Royals blasted 52 shots at the Shawville net while Shawville had 45 shots at Royals’ netminder Quinten Abrams. And, in fact, it took a shootout to decide the winner as the game was tied 1-1 after regulation play and the scoreless overtime session did not settle anything. The game was scoreless until the third period when Talmadge Farnes scored for the Royals with just 1:22 gone in the period, with Jordan Cale and Tanner Knight picking up assists. But just two minutes later, Shawville came back to

tie up the game. This is how the score stayed until the shootout which went three rounds with Shawville emerging with the victory as two of its three shooters scored. Only Ryan Daniels scored for the Royals, with bother Tanner Knight and Alex Hulford failing to score. There were just six penalties in the game, with Shawville taking four of them and the Royals taking two. Neither team scored on its powerplay opportunities. So far this season, the Stittsville Royals have scored 119 goals in 36 games, while allowing 140 goals.

Heritage Day Drop-In at Stittsville library Special to the News

News - The contribution of the military in Goulbourn’s history will be the theme of the Goulbourn Township Historical Society’s Heritage Day Drop-In at the Stittsville branch of the Ottawa Public library this Saturday, Feb. 15 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Everyone in the community is welcome to attend and enjoy this event called “Kilts and Camouflage” which marks the Historical Society’s celebration of the upcoming Heritage Week in Ontario. And history will be coming alive at the event because featured guests will be soldiers from

the Cameron Highlanders of Ottawa who will be showing off not only their kilted dress uniforms but also their modern camouflage dress. They will also be showing some of the gear that they used when they deployed to Afghanistan. The presence of the Cameron Highlands at the event is significant because the regiment is the direct modern-day descendant of the 43rd battalion known as the “Carleton Blazers” which was raised in Goulbourn and elsewhere in Carleton County in the 1860’s to defend against the Fenian threat from the United States. The Carleton Blazers included a militia unit headquartered in Munster and one centred

in Richmond. The Cameron Highlands in their kilted dress uniforms and their camouflage outfits will not be the only eye-catching personnel at this Heritage Day Drop-In. There are expected to be a number of colourful historical characters in costume on hand to chat with visitors, including the Duke of Richmond and War of 1812 heroine Maria Hill. The event will include displays featuring stories about some of the soldiers of the 100th Regiment of Foot who were early settlers in Goulbourn. There will be a map showing where many of these soldiers settled in the township. The book “For King and Canada” by author the late Barry Roberts telling the story of the 100th Regiment of Foot including the Regiment’s exploits in the War of 1812 will be on sale at the event for $35 each. In addition, visitors to the library for the event will be able to take a look at this month’s exhibit on the Art Space Wall at the library which features an exhibit of pen and ink sketches of heritage buildings located in Stittsville, Richmond, Munster and Dwyer Hill. Members of the public are invited to bring any relevant military photos and memorabilia to the event where they will be displayed on a table for others to view and appreciate. There will also be light refreshments available for enjoyment at the event. The Cameron Highlanders traces its history as a regiment back to the formation of the 43rd Battalion of Infantry in Oct. 1866. Known locally as the Carleton Blazers with headquarters in Bells Corners, it was responsible for infantry companies in the area including in Bells Corners, Goulbourn, Huntley, North Gower, Rich-

mond and Metcalfe. In 1867, officers and men from all seven of these local companies gathered in Ottawa for the July 1st Confederation ceremonies on Parliament Hill. Three years later, in May 1870 saw the battalion experience its first active service resulting from fears of a Fenian invasion from the United States. This threat led to the mobilization of militia units across Ontario, Quebec and the Maritimes. By late May, the whole 43rd Battalion which then amounted to nine infantry companies totaling about 400 officers and men were in Prescott, ready to oppose any invasion from across the St. Lawrence. The threat passed and on June 4 the Battalion returned to the Ottawa area. The Carleton Blazers or 43rd Battalion was disbanded in Dec. 1875 due to lack of participants. However, the regiment was re-formed in Ottawa in Aug. 1881 as the 43rd Ottawa and Carleton Battalion of Rifles which included rifle companies in Ottawa, Fitzroy and Vernon as well as in Quebec communities across the Ottawa River. Subsequent history of what is now the Cameron Highlanders include participation by nearly 80 members in the Boer War; a name change in 1900 to the 43rd Regiment Ottawa and Carleton Rifles and then in 1902 to the 43rd Regiment, Duke of Cornwall’s Own Rifles. When the Second World War broke out in Sept. 1939, the regiment was ordered to mobilize for war. After the war, the regiment, known as the Cameron Highlanders of Ottawa, resumed its routine of training soldiers and participating in ceremonial duties.

Dance featuring Smokey Rose to raise funds for new hospice Special to the News

News - Get on your dancing shoes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a dance coming up at the Lions Hall in Stittsville! It will take place on Saturday, March 29 at 8 p.m., with the Ottawa Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own Smokey Rose providing the music. The dance is being held as a fundraiser in support of Hospice Care Ottawa and its capital campaign for the new Ruddy-Shenkman Hospice that will hopefully become a reality in Kanata by 2016. Smokey Rose originally consisted of the duo of Darlene Thibault and Lee Hodgkinson with Ed Ashton joining the duo in 2010, adding an extra layer of sound with his bass playing and vocal talents. Smokey Rose has been performing traditional and contemporary country music

throughout the Ottawa Valley since 1996. In June 2006, Smokey Rose released its debut CD full of country classics. Smokey Rose has close to 200 songs in its repertoire, so you know that there will be a variety of great country music at the March 29 dance. Tickets for the dance at $10 per person are available by phoning 613-836-4964 or 613-838-5007. Hospice Care Ottawa, which now looks after hospice care in the Ottawa area following its creation with the amalgamation of the Hospice at May Court and Friends of Hospice Ottawa, has entered into a partnership with the Bruyere Foundation to raise $6 million to develop the Ruddy-Shenkman Hospice at a site on McCurdy Drive in Kanata, formerly the home of the Trinity Presbyterian Church.

The Ruddy-Shenkman Hospice will be a ten bed residential hospice and day hospice, providing end-of-life care and support to those in need of such care. The Hospice Ottawa West (HOW) Campaign has now raised half of its goal, in large part thanks to a one million dollar donation to the Campaign by the Ruddy and Shenkman families announced last October. This is one of the largest single donations ever received by a hospice in Canada. At present renovations are happening at the former church facility to retroďŹ t the building to house Hosice Care Ottawa administrative ofďŹ ces as well as a day hospice and bereavement programs. Construction will be necessary to expand the facility to accommodate the new RuddyShenkman hospice home.

MARY COOK Mary Cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Memories Lifestyle - Mother had searched the summer kitchen and the wood shed. She couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find it anywhere. And it was Sunday night, and she was getting ready for the Monday morning wash. The big copper tub was sitting on the back of the Findlay Oval full of water at the ready. Into this tub Mother would put all the white clothes that had to be washed. They would soak all night, with the hope that she wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to use as much javel water on them in the morning. Heav-

Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s laundry wood â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;pinchersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; took on another use for Emerson

en forbid that the whites wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be sparkling when put on the clothes line for the entire world to see! Mother liked to have everything set when she was ready to tackle what would turn out to be an all-day job. That meant the copper tub was full of whites on the stove, the rest of the laundry was sorted into heaps on the kitchen floor, and the homemade soap cut into slivers and sitting in a pie plate. And of course, the long wood â&#x20AC;&#x153;pinchersâ&#x20AC;? used to take the boiled



Helping you make sense of wealth management strategies

whites out of the tub, and put them into the square laundry tub, ready for scrubbing on the washboard, would be sitting on a chair too. They looked exactly like the tweezers Aunt Lizzie used to pull out stray eyebrows when she came from Regina to visit, only these were about two feet long, made of wood held together at one end with a bolt, and strong enough that Mother could easily grab a good portion of white clothes out of the tub without touching the hot water. Well, that day the pinchers were nowhere to be found. It was just before supper, and Mother sent me back out to the wood shed and the summer kitchen to have another look. I even looked behind the sauerkraut barrel -- there was no sign of them anywhere. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well, they have to be somewhere,â&#x20AC;? Mother said, putting the finishing touches on supper. Father and the three brothers came in from the barns and the milking, and washed up at the bench near the back door. We all took our places at the old pine table, and after Grace was said by Father, and before anyone could dig in to the mounds of food, Mother commented that she couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find the wood tongs, which was the term she used. Father called them pinchers, but he knew what she meant, and that was all that was important. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Must be out in the summer kitchen,â&#x20AC;? he said. Mother assured him a

thorough search had been made of both the summer kitchen and the wood shed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gone. Just plain gone,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know where they are,â&#x20AC;? Earl said, giving a sidelong glance towards Emerson. Emerson started to squirm and asked Everett to pass the potatoes. Earl continued: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re out on the chopping block behind the silo.â&#x20AC;? Everything stopped dead. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatever are the laundry tongs doing out on the chopping block,â&#x20AC;? Mother asked, her voice rising to a high pitch. The chopping block was where the chickens met their doom and it was also where the fish the boys caught ice-fishing in the Bonnechere River were cleaned. Everett was usually the one who performed the dastardly deed, because even though he was rambunctious and full of spunk, Emerson could never bring himself to working the chopping block. The same went for cleaning fish. In fact, he loved to fish, summer or winter, but Everett or Earl always had to bait the line for him. He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want a thing to do with a live fish from the time the line went in the water, until it was served on a dinner plate. And when the fish sat in a pail of water beside the chopping block ready to be cleaned, Emerson wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even touch one to take it out of the pail and hand it to Everett. That is, until he figured Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s laundry tongs

would do just fine. He could grab a fish, slap it on the block, and Everett could do the rest. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take all day to figure out why the tongs were out at the chopping block. There wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t much talk around the supper table that Sunday night. Emerson got up from the table, put on his heavy coat, hat and boots, and headed for the silo. When he brought the tongs back into the kitchen, Mother already had a granite pail of water boiling on the front of the stove -- she swore the clothes would smell of fish for at least a month of washings. The tongs were put into the pail, with a good dose of vinegar, and there they sat, boiling away until bedtime. No one ever knew if Emerson ever got over his aversion to touching uncooked fish, but we all knew he never went near the tongs again. Mother made sure of that. Every Sunday night after that, and even before filling the tub with water or gathering up the whites, she got the tongs out of the summer kitchen, slapped them on a chair by the stove, and her look dared anyone to lay a finger on them.

Apple sweet bread is good for breakfast or snack time Foodland Ontario

Special to the News

Lifestyle - Coconut bread or sweet bread, as itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s often called in the islands, is a heavy quick bread that either can be served at breakfast or with a cup of tea in the afternoon. The addition of apple makes it moister and replaces the candied fruit. Preparation time: 15 minutes. Baking time: one hour. Makes one loaf (12 slices). Ingredients * 375 ml (1-1/2 cups) all-purpose flour * 7 ml (1-1/2 tsp) baking powder * 2 ml (1/2 tsp) salt * 1 ml (1/4 tsp) each ground cinnamon and nutmeg * 1 egg, lightly beaten * 250 ml (1 cup) granulated sugar * 75 ml (1/3 cup) vegetable oil * 5 ml (1 tsp) vanilla * 2 apples, peeled, cored and coarsely grated (about 250ml/1 cup)

* 125 ml (1/2 cup) unsweetened desiccated coconut * 125 ml (1/2 cup) raisins

Preparation In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg, and set the mixture aside. In a large bowl, whisk together the egg, all but 5 ml (1 tsp) of the sugar, oil and vanilla. Add the flour mixture, and mix well -- the resulting mixture will be dry. Stir in the grated apple, coconut and raisins. Spread the mixture into greased and floured 1.5litre (eight-by-four inch) metal loaf pan. Sprinkle with the remaining sugar. Bake in a 180 C (350 F) oven for about one hour or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the loaf comes out clean. Let it cool in a pan on a rack for 10 minutes. Remove from the pan and let cool. Serve warm or at room temperature.

George Bourguignon, who won the annual Bill Aird Dart Tournament in 2008, lines up a shot as he takes part in this year’s tournament at the Stittsville Legion Hall in Stittsville last Saturday.

News - Darts were in the air at the Stittsville Legion Hall in Stittsville last Saturday. It was happening at the 20th annual Bill Aird Dart Tournament, hosted by the Valley Pub Dart League and held in memory of Bill Aird, a member of the league who passed away from a heart attack in 1994. That’s why the tournament raises funds for the Heart and Stroke Foundation and this year’s tournament ended up raising $1,060 for the Foundation. A record 48 players participated in this year’s tournament which saw ten dart boards in play in the Legion Hall’s main hall. Organizer of the tournament is Kathleen Agnew. Winners of the tournament this year were the duo of Mike Craig and Jason Hamilton. The team of John Baker and Dave Newar finished as runner-up in the tournament. Last year Dave Newar teamed up with Emyr Thomas to win the tournament. The annual tournament is always held at the Stittsville Legion Hall, with the players mainly being regulars in the Valley Pub Dart League, playing out of various pubs. But the tournament is open to other dart players who might want to take part. The tournament originally started over 20 years ago as a fun event to

break up the winter. In 1994, with the death of Bill Aird, it became a tournament held in his memory and as a fundraiser to help those with heart problems through donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

Free public Wi-Fi access is coming to GRC Special to the News

News - Free public Wi-Fi access is coming to the Goulbourn Recreation Complex (GRC) in Stittsville. It is one of 25 municipal facilities that are getting this Wi-Fi service due to a new five year sponsorship agreement between the city and IceNet Wireless, an Ottawa-based wireless

internet company that is a division of EION Inc. The sponsorship agreement has been facilitated under the city’s Community Champions Program. The Wi-Fi service will be installed in the coming months, with all 25 locations to be online and operational by July. Having free public Wi-Fi service at the GRC

will, for instance, allow parents to work or check their email while waiting for their child or children to finish with their recreational activity at the GRC. And this free Wi-Fi service is being provided at the GRC and the other 24 municipal facilities at no cost to the city of Ottawa. In fact, the city has been guaranteed $315,000 in revenue

over the five year life of the sponsorship agreement ($63,000 per year). Mayor Jim Watson notes that this free public Wi-Fi access at municipal facilities like the GRC is a “win-win deal” with residents receiving a service not only at no cost to the city but also with the city receiving $63,000 per year in revenue.

2013 was a good year financially for the RVA News - What a difference a year can make! A year ago, the Richmond Village Association was in danger of folding and its finances reflected its lowly state of affairs, as the RVA had a bank balance of $2,008 at the beginning of the year. But the involvement of new blood on the Board of Directors and a revitalized energy in the organization and the RVA finished 2013 with $10,673.14 in the bank. This does not include $4,196.37 in a special account related to the Heritage Mural Gallery on the exterior of the Richmond arena. The RVA generated $21,992.41 in revenue in 2013 due to its fundraising efforts. Expenditures for the year totaled $12,637.81. So, as outgoing treasurer Heather Martineau observed at the RVAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual general meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 4, the RVA is in a more positive and robust position going into its 2014 activities not only because of its financial situation but also because of the numerous volunteers from the community who have stepped forward to help with RVA activities. And those at the annual general meeting heard a summary of what these RVA activities

and events were in 2013. These included updating and improving the RVA website, circulation of quarterly event flyers in the community, putting up hanging baskets and putting out planters to beautify the village, an outdoor entertainment event on June 22, the annual garden contest, the annual Santa Claus parade which attracted more than 25 entries in 2013, the Winter Wonderland street banner program, the tree sponsorship program for Memorial Park at Christmas, a community garage sale in the spring and a float in the Richmond Fair parade. Other RVA activities include an advocacy committee that deals with community planning issues as well as issues like the impact of the proposed oil pipeline just west of the village, the future of the villageâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ash trees and the possibility of establishing a splash pad in the community and also a fundraising committee that seeks donations and corporate sponsorships in the community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The RVA does phenomenal work,â&#x20AC;? outgoing treasurer Heather Martineau told those at the RVAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual general meeting. She urged everyone in the community to consider helping out with one of the RVAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s events or activities. She said that such volunteering will give a person not only great personal satisfaction but will help out the community as well.

Four-hand euchre will be played on Wednesday, Feb. 19 starting at 7:30 p.m. at St. Philipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Parish hall at the corner of Burke Street and Fortune Street in Richmond. Admission of $5 per person includes a light lunch. Everyone welcome. For information, phone 613-489-3996.

Tino Bevacqua heads Richmond Village Association

News - Tino Bevacqua is the new president of the Richmond Village Association (RVA). The 33 year resident of Richmond was elected to the position by the members of the RVA’s new Board of Directors immediately following the RVA’s annual general meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 4 in Richmond. Joining Tino on the RVA executive are fellow Board members John Shearer as vice-president, Lorne Smallwood as treasurer and Doug Arnold as secretary. All four were elected to the Board of Directors at the AGM, along with Shelley Lafleur, Kim Bruton, Kristine Quarrington and David Proulx. The Board of Directors was elected by acclamation at the AGM after a ninth candidate for the eight Board positions, Mathew Heins, withdrew his nomination, saying that he would work with the RVA as a volunteer in the coming year rather than seek to be on the Board of Directors. His withdrawal meant that

there were eight nominations for the eight Board positions, resulting in an election by acclamation rather than by ballot as scrutineers Rosemary MacArthur and Paul Ray-

mond had been all ready to distribute ballots to those at the AGM before Mr. Heins announced his withdrawal as a candidate. Stepping back from involve-

ment on the Board of Directors of the RVA are Judy Wagdin who was president for the past year; Heather Martineau who has been the treasurer; Harvey Snyder who has served on

the Board since its inception; Leslie Abraham, a longtime Board member; Rosemary MacArthur, who has served as the Board’s secretary in the past; Lynne Owen, another


Members of the Board of Directors of the Richmond Village Association for 2014 are, front row, from left, Shelley Lafleur, Kim Bruton, Tino Bevacqua (president) and Kristine Quarrington; and, back row, from left, Doug Arnold (secretary), Lorne Smallwood (treasurer), John Shearer (vice-president) and David Proulx.

longtime Board member; and Bruce Webster, a past president. Jim MacGillivray, who was vice-president of the Board in 2013, is also not on the new Board, along with a number of other Board members on what was previously a larger Board. This year the Board’s membership has been restricted to eight people, although there will still be numerous opportunities for others to volunteer to help with various RVA committees and projects. Bruce Webster, for instance, has indicated that he will be staying involved with the RVA’s advocacy committee while Judy Wagdin will be helping organize the RVA’s annual garden contest and its Richmond Days celebration in June. With these departures from the Board, there were a couple of special presentations at the annual general meeting, Judy Wagdin was presented with a bouquet of flowers in recognition of her leadership role with the RVA while past president Bruce Webster presented outgoing treasurer Heather Martineau with a bouquet of flowers in appreciation of her work looking after the RVA finances.

OHIP funded services now available in Stittsville


Physiotherapists Mary Foley, left, and Monica Clarke, right, are co-owners of the Stittsville Sport Physiotherapy Centre in the Lions Medical Centre building on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville.

News - Physiotherapy services covered by OHIP for those under age 19 and over age 65 are now available close to home for Stittsville area residents. The Stittsville Sport Physiotherapy Centre located in the Stittsville Lions Medical Centre on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville has been approved by OHIP to provide such services locally. This makes the services much for accessible not only for Stittsville residents but those from throughout west Ottawa including Kanata. Up until now, the closest locations where these OHIP funded services were available for west Ottawa residents were on Woodroffe Avenue or at Carleton University. It is all part of a Ministry of Health and Long Term Care initiative to provide such services at locations that are closer to where the need for them exists. The Stittsville Sport Physiotherapy Centre applied to the Ministry for the opportunity to provide such OHIP funded services. The decision in favour of Stittsville Sport Physiotherapy Centre was made based on the clinic’s personnel and care, information from the Champlain Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) and the need that exists in the area. A budget to cover such services has been allocated to Stittsville Sport Physiotherapy Centre. The Centre will also be submitted reports about the outcomes being achieved to assure the Ministry that the clients are receiving good care.

Indeed, Stittsville Sport Physiotherapy Centre co-owner Mary Foley says that those receiving these OHIP funded services will receive the same quality of care as fee-paying clients. This means a full one hour assessment and all treatments scheduled for 30 minutes of individual care with the treatment provided by a registered physiotherapist. To qualify for these OHIP funded services, patients must be 19 years of age or younger or be 65 years of age or older; must have a valid Ontario Health Card; must have a referral from a doctor or a nurse practitioner referral for one injury that would benefit from physiotherapy; and this referral must container a provider number.


Only one injury and one body part must be part of the referral for it to be accepted by the Ministry for the funding. Stittsville Sport Physiotherapy Centre was opened in May 2010 by co-owners Mary Foley and Monica Clarke, both of whom are physiotherapists with over 20 years of experience each. The Centre deals with treating muscle and joint pain as well as sports injury. The Centre has five treatment rooms and besides Mary and Monica, employs two other part-time physiotherapists. Physiotherapists at Stittsville Sport Physiotherapy Centre have a wide range of assessment and treatment skills that enable them to spe-

cifically address injuries and identify factors that may have been predisposing factors. Stittsville Sport Physiotherapy Centre believes that the best physiotherapy care requires time to listen, to assess and to treat a patient’s entire problem. That’s why every patient including any funded by OHIP receives a one hour assessment and all treatments are scheduled for 30 minutes of one-on-one care. Stittsville Sport Physiotherapy Centre feels that this new addition of OHIP funding for physiotherapy services fits nicely with its patient demographics, namely youth who are more likely to have ACL injuries and older adults suffering from osteoarthritis.

Colonel Burkeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s medal on display on Family Day Kurt Johnson Special to the News

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; For 160 years a silver military medal with the image of a young Queen Victoria has been lovingly passed down the generations of the family of Colonel George Thew Burke who was a hero in the War of 1812 and who went on to become the superintendent of the Richmond military settlement in 1818. To honour the memory of this Goulbourn pioneer leader, his present-day descendants Scott and Elizabeth Baylis, who are brother and sister, recently donated this family heirloom military medal to the Goulbourn Museum. Members of the public will be able to see this Burke military medal this coming Monday, Feb. 17, which is the Family Day holiday in Ontario, when the medal will have a prominent place in the Goulbourn Museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s renewed exhibit for the 100th Regiment of Foot whose discharged soldiers were among the original pioneer settlers of Goulbourn township. The renewed exhibit with the Burke medal will be unveiled at the

Museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Family Day event which will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 17 with everyone welcome to attend. Admission is free. Also on display for this Family Day event will be other items related to Colonel Burke including a ceremonial sword bayonet, a snuff box and a regimental silver spoon, all donated by another branch of the Burke family. These Military General Service Medals like this Burke medal are very rare. Only 900 of these medals for service in the War of 1812 were awarded in 1848 to British and Canadian soldiers involved in the war, with special clasps recognizing service in any of three specific battles â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Detroit (1812), Chateauguay (1813) or Cryslerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Farm (1813). Their rarity means that collectors pay handsome prices for such medals. The clasp associated with Colonel Burkeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s medal, inscribed with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Chateauguay,â&#x20AC;? adorns the dark blue-edged crimson ribbon holding the 36 millimetre silver disk which is stamped on its edge with Burkeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name, rank and regiment to which he belonged. He qualified for the

medal for having served as a Major of Brigade during the Battle of Chateauguay which occurred on Oct. 26, 1813. With a huge American army invading Lower Canada, Burke took vital military reports to the British generals in Montreal, travelling back and forth from the defending force of British soldiers, Canadian militia and native warriors assembled at Chateauguay under Lieutenant-Colonel Charles de Salaberry. Colonel Burke only possessed his war medal, presented in 1848, for a few years before he died at the age of 78 in 1854 at his sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home in Bytown. The medal was then held by his oldest daughter, Margaret Jane, who had married Dr. Christopher Collis and then Dr. John Crawford, both living in Richmond. Decades later, the then-79 year old widow bestowed this family treasure on her young grandson, John (Jack) Crawford Scott. Along with the medal, Scott and Elizabeth Baylis have also donated to the Goulbourn Museum a parchment letter which Mrs. Crawford wrote on Jan. 21, 1889, addressed to â&#x20AC;&#x153;My Dear Jack.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I give into your hands for

safe keeping my dear fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s medal,â&#x20AC;? the letter reads. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know you are careful. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want it to go out of the family nor do I wish you to say anything about it.â&#x20AC;? When Jack Crawford Scott died in 1930, his wife Louise â&#x20AC;&#x153;put the medal in a safe place.â&#x20AC;? After she died in 1971, her daughter Margaret Louise and husband Robert Baylis became â&#x20AC;&#x153;the custodianâ&#x20AC;? of the medal and letter, keeping them in a safety deposit box. The suggestion of donating this War of 1812 medal given to Colonel Burke to the Goulbourn Museum came from Elizabethâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s long-time friend, Jim McTavish of Kingston. They had been teachers together at one time. Scott and Elizabeth Baylis were sent a page from a Goulbourn Museum annual report showing the other Burke items which had been donated to the Museum. They were unaware of these donated items. They then decided that the Goulbourn Museum would be the perfect place for Colonel Burkeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s war medal. This is appropriate as well since Richmond will be celebrating its bicentennial in the year 2018.

After being passed down from generation to generation in the family for 160 years, the family of Colonel Burke has entrusted his silver military medal recognizing his service in the War of 1812 to the Goulbourn Museum. The medal is being added to the Museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exhibition about the 100th Regiment of Foot which saw service in the War of 1812 and which supplied many early settlers to Goulbourn in 1818.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Taize Style Serviceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; at St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Anglican Church hall in Richmond Special to the News

News - You could travel to the Taize Community in Burgundy in France to hear the chants for which this ecumenical monastic order is known. Or, much closer to home, you could simply be at the church hall at St. John the Baptist Anglican Church on Fowler Street in Richmond on Sunday, March 2 at 3 p.m. where a community â&#x20AC;&#x153;Taize Style Serviceâ&#x20AC;? is being held, open to everyone. Taize chants are short chants that are repeated again and again, giving them a meditative

character. Using just a few words, the chants express a basic reality of faith, quickly grasped by the mind. As the words are sung over many times in Taize chants, this reality gradually penetrates the whole being. Many Taize chants come from the Eastern Orthodox tradition and the music emphasizes simple phrases, usually lines from Psalms or other pieces of Scripture, repeated and repeated. Taize chants are used in many ecumenical services around the world. This service planned at the church hall at

St. John the Baptist Anglican Church in Richmond on Sunday, March 2 will feature several Taize chants but will also include chants that are not Taize chants but are simply beautiful chants from other sources. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why it is called a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Taize Style Serviceâ&#x20AC;? rather than a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Taize Service.â&#x20AC;? If you want to know more about this â&#x20AC;&#x153;Taize Style Service,â&#x20AC;? please phone Rev. Michel Dubord, rector of St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Anglican Church, at 613-838-6075. Everyone is welcome to attend. The Taize community itself is fascinating in

that it is an ecumenical monastic order based in Burgundy in France involving more than 100 religious Brothers from both Protestant and Catholic traditions. It was founded in 1940 by Brother Roger Schutz, a Protestant. The Taize community has become an important site of Christian pilgrimage, with over 100,000 young people from around the world making pilgrimages to Taize each year for prayer, Bible study and communal work. The pilgrims are encouraged to live in a spirit of kindness, simplicity and reconciliation.

Stittsville Legion happenings

There are plenty of things to do this Family Day weekend in and around Rideau-Goulbourn and I’d like to highlight those events below…

Barb Vant’Slot

Free Family Day Event at Goulbourn Museum

Special to the News

Family Day at Goulbourn Museum will feature an array of free activities for all ages. Families can pose for a photo keepsake in the Old-Fashioned Photo Booth, get creative at the craft station, play games, win prizes, and step back in time in the Museum’s replica village shop. Visitors will also be the first to glimpse a piece of military history that was once pinned to the chest of one of Goulbourn’s War of 1812 heroes. After being passed down from generation to generation for 160 years, the family of Colonel George Burke has entrusted the Museum with his silver military medal. Burke’s medal will be added to the Museum’s 100th Regiment of Foot exhibition which is undergoing renovations to make the displays more accessible. Both the medal and the refreshed exhibit will be unveiled during the Museum’s Family Day event. The Family Day festivities take place Monday, February 17 from 10:00am to 3:00pm. All ages are welcome, admission is free and light refreshments will be served. The Goulbourn Museum is located at 2064 Huntley Road, just south of Stittsville, at Stanley’s Corners. For more information, please visit http://goulbournmuseum. ca/whats-happening/ or call 613-831-2393 or join Goulbourn Museum on Facebook for regular updates. Marlborough Family Fun Day

It will include a breakfast from 9:30am until 11:00am, followed by sleigh rides from 11:30am until 1:30pm. There will also be a variety of indoor and outdoor activities beginning at 10:00am. Between Noon and 3:00pm, you’ll be entertained by live music. I’m told it is Elvis. No word on whether or not it is an impersonator or the real thing. After all, we are only a short drive from Tweed. Following the entertainment, have the kids gather around for a family movie at 3:00pm.


News – Karaoke with “Yellow Dory” will be held on Saturday, Feb. 22 at the Stittsville Legion Hall on Stittsville Main Street, with everyone in the community welcome to attend and sing along. “Open Mike” with “Jumpin’” Jimmy Leroux is happening in the downstairs lounge at the Legion Hall every Friday starting at 8 p.m. Everyone in the community is welcome to attend and enjoy some great music at these Open Mike sessions. However, there will be no Open Mike on Friday, Feb. 21 due to the Simon Clark performance in the downstairs lounge. The Survivors Club is hosting a “50’s” Dance this Saturday, Feb. 15 at the Legion Hall starting at 8 p.m. There will be prizes for the best dressup. It will be a night of dancing and just having fun. There will be a light snack later in the evening. Admission only $12 per person. Everyone is

welcome to attend. A prime rib roast dinner will be held at the Legion Hall this Saturday, Feb. 15 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. for $15 per person. Tickets available at the Legion Hall. British singer Simon Clark will be entertaining at the Legion Hall on Friday evening, Feb. 21. He always draws a large crowd, so plan to get there early for a good seat. Everyone in the community is welcome to attend. The next breakfast at the Stittsville Legion Hall will take place on Sunday, March 2 from 9 a.m. to 12 noon with everyone in the community welcome to attend and enjoy a delicious family breakfast for only $5 per person.

s Jason’Landscaping

GTHS is celebrating Heritage Day on Saturday February 15th from 1:00 to 4:00pm. It will be at the Stittsville Branch of the Ottawa Public Library and will feature the Cameron Highlanders in their kilted dress uniforms and camouflage outfits along with some of the gear they used when they went to Afghanistan. The Camerons are direct descendants of the militia units formed in Goulbourn Township in the 1860’s to defend against the Fenian threats coming from the United States. The overall theme of the afternoon is “The military contribution to Goulbourn Township” and it will cover the soldiers from the 100th Regiment of Foot who first settled in Richmond and the great numbers of former soldiers who settled in the whole of Goulbourn Township. They all contributed a great deal to the growth of Goulbourn and their contributions to our heritage will be honoured. There will also be displays and other colourful costumed characters, including the Duke of Richmond, Maria Hill and some members of the 85th Highland regiment. All will be eager to chat or answer your questions. As usual, there will be light refreshments available.Drop in for a chat and a cup of tea, and if you have any military photos or memorabilia, feel free to bring them along. There will be a table available to display them on.
